Trump: Chance for Successful Border Negotiations Outcome “Less Than 50-50″…Why He’s Right

January 28, 2019

trump-looking-out-window-oval-office

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump said Sunday he doubted he could accept any agreement struck by congressional negotiators that would give him less than his requested $5.7 billion for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border as White House officials dangled the possibility of another partial shutdown next month.

The president also cast doubt on the prospect of lawmakers reaching any agreement before funding for most government agencies runs out on Feb. 15, telling The Wall Street Journal: “I personally think it’s less than 50-50, but you have a lot of very good people on that board.”

On Friday, Trump signed legislation ending the 35-day shutdown without any funding for his long-promised border barrier, a reversal from last month when he refused to sign any funding legislation that did not provide wall money.

“I have to do it right,” Trump insisted to the Journal on Sunday, adding that another partial shutdown was “certainly an option.” The president also cast doubt on any deal that would trade wall funding for increased protections or citizenship for Dreamers, a group of immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children, calling it “a separate subject to be taken up at a separate time.”

When asked on CBS News’ “Face The Nation” if Trump was prepared to wage another shutdown fight over the wall, acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney answered: “Yeah, I think he actually is.”

“This is a serious humanitarian and security crisis,” Mulvaney said. “And, as president of the United States, [Trump] takes the security of the nation as his highest priority.”

Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” Mulvaney said “the right way” to fund the wall would be through legislation passed by Congress.

“But at the end of the day,” he added, “the president is going to secure the border one way or another.”

The White House has directed the Army Corps of Engineers to “look at possible ways of funding border security,” including possibly using the president’s emergency powers and unspent disaster relief money.

“I think the president wants his $5.7 billion,” Mulvaney said. “Keep in mind – why is that number? It’s not a number that’s made up. It’s what the experts have told him. He’s listened to DHS. I’ve been in on the meetings. He’s listened to CBP [Customs and Border Patrol], he’s listened to ICE.”

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York, a member of the Democratic leadership in the House, said his colleagues are looking for “evidence-based” legislation.

“Shutdowns are not legitimate negotiating tactics when there’s a public policy disagreement between two branches of government,” he told NBC News’ “Meet The Press.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has said repeatedly that congressional Democrats would not support any legislation that finances the wall.

The president kept up the case for the wall on social media, tweeting: “BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!” On Sunday morning, he pegged the number of illegal immigrants at “25,772,342 … not the 11,000,000 that have been reported for years.” Trump also tweeted that the cost of illegal immigration so far this year was nearly $19 billion. He did not cite a source for either figure.

“I’m not exactly sure where the President got that number this morning,” Mulvaney told “Face The Nation.” “But I think what you see him trying to do is point out how silly this debate is. This is not that much money in the greater scheme of things the United States of America … This should have been resolved a long time ago, and we do hope it gets resolved in the next twenty-one days.”

I feel as if I have written about the situation on the border at least a million times.

I have written about it so many times because it involves our nation’s sovereignty and our continued existence as the nation which our Founding Fathers bequeathed us.

Perhaps I am isolated, living down here in the Northwest Corner of the Magnolia State in the Heart of the Bible Belt. However, I simply cannot logically understand the Far Left Democratic Party and their Congressional Leadership being so desperate to radically change our nation into a Socialist Paradise (a contradiction in terms), that they would allow unskilled laborers, thieves, rapists, and murderers, including members of MS-13, to invade our country.

My Daddy, God rest him, did not step off of a perfectly fine boat into a hail of gunfire, wading onto the beach at Normandy, France for this bunch of Norman Matoon Thomas wannabes on Capitol Hill to destroy America from within, turning us into an giant Venezuela.

Norman Matoon Thomas was a six time Presidential Candidate representing the Socialist Party of America. The following quote from him is becoming a reality right before our very eyes,

The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.

The incremental growth of our federal government, as we have already witnessed over the last several decades, thanks to an unrelenting push by Democrats and Vichy Republicans alike, will accelerate into “Ludicrous Speed” (Spaceballs: The Movie) if these caravans containing thousands of illegal immigrants are allowed into our Sovereign Nation without being stopped by a physical barrier.

The “useful idiots” breaking in to our country will join the useful idiots who are already here and the Hierarchy of the Democratic Party in a mutually beneficial quest to turn a nation built on capitalism into a third world barrio created by socialism, a mirror image of the impoverished countries which they sought to escape from…supposedly.

As I have previously written , President Trump knows that the ideologues in the Democratic Party Hierarchy have no intention whatsoever to negotiate in good faith.

And, as the above article alluded to, he already has plans in place to build the wall without them.

I believe that he sees the same possible future that I just described, and like the overwhelming majority of Americans living between the East and Left Coasts who voted for him, he wants no part of it.

As President of the United States of America, he is charged with securing the safety of our country and its citizens.

Therefore, he is completely within his power to build those physical barriers along our Southern Border in order to keep both his Campaign Promise to American Citizens and to fulfill his Presidential Duties.

And, if Pelosi, Schumer and the rest of the Democrats and Vichy Republicans on Capitol Hill make him exercise that “nuclear option”, there isn’t a blessed thing that they can do about it.

Trump Offers Compromise Deal, House Dems Reject It in Favor of Continuing Temper Tantrum

January 20, 2019

Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat Party care about one thing: making sure that nobody like Donald Trump ever tries this again. – Rush Limbaugh 1/17/2019

FoxNews.com reports that…

President Trump, in a televised White House address Saturday, offered Democrats a compromise package on immigration in an effort to end the nearly month long partial government shutdown — although some prominent Democrats were dismissing the olive branch as a “non-starter” before Trump even spoke.

Trump announced that he was prepared to back a three-year extension of protections for 700,000 immigrants who came to the country illegally as children and were shielded from deportation under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. This, in exchange for the $5.7 billion he has requested for a barrier on the southern border with Mexico.

“Walls are not immoral,” he said, adding that a wall “will save many lives and stop drugs from pouring into our country.”

“This is not a concrete structure from sea to sea,” he said, addressing some previously expressed concerns about the so-called “wall.” “These are steel barriers in high-priority locations.”

The offered deal would also extend protections for 300,000 recipients of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program — which protects immigrants from designated countries with conditions that prevent nationals from returning safely.

“Our immigration system should be a source of pride, not a source of shame as it is all over the world,” Trump said, before urging politicians to “take off their armor” and find solutions.

It would allocate $800 million for drug detection technology to secure ports of entry, 2,750 new border agents and law enforcement professionals, and 75 new immigration judges to reduce an immense backlog of asylum requests.

He said that all his proposals have been supported by Democrats before.

And, of course, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the House Hive-mind rejected the President’s deal as soon as he spoke it.

The hypocrisy and blatantly self-serving actions of the House Democrats remind me of a bunch of 11 year olds who did not get what they wanted for Christmas.

For all of their bluster and planted sob stories in the Main Stream Media about how much they care for the 800,000 government workers who are not getting their paychecks because of the shutdown, the Dems’ actions tell a completely different story.

They honestly do not give a hoot ‘n holler about those government workers. This is all about a bunch of spoiled Far Left Democrats holding a Sovereign Nation hostage in order to get their way.

They are refusing Trump’s request for a barrier along our Southern Border because they want those thousands of illegals to come right on into our country…and become Democrat voters.

As proven in the 2016 Presidential Election, the Democrats’ embracing of Marxism has lost them the Middle Class.

And, they are still throwing a temper tantrum over it.

Average Americans want nothing to do with the Far Left Liberals who are in power in the Democratic Party, so they have to bring in new voters as quickly as possible.

Their desperation is such that they no longer care that they are showing their poateriors to the entire nation by refusing to compromise of proposals which they used to readily embraced and advocate for.

And, President Trump already knows this.

The man wrote a book titled, “The Art of the Deal”. He knows how to negotiate.

By continuing to offer to negotiate, he is coming off as “the only adult in the room”.

If Pelosi and the House Democrats continue to act like petulant children, President Trump needs to spank them by declaring a National Emergency, allocating the funding necessary, and taking care of the Border Situation himself.

It is time for Pelosi and the House Democrats to grow up.

Trump’s National Security Speech and the Schumer/Pelosi Rebuttal – “A Choice Between Right and Wrong”

January 9, 2019

09dc-trumptranscript-facebookjumbo

For those who refuse to compromise in the name of in the name of border security, I would ask, imagine if it was your child, your husband or your wife whose life was so cruelly shattered and totally broken. To every member of Congress, pass a bill that ends this crisis. To every citizen, call Congress and tell them to finally, after all of these decades, secure our border. This is a choice between right and wrong, justice and injustice. This is about whether we fulfill our sacred duty to the American citizens we serve. When I took the oath of office, I swore to protect our country. And that is what I will always do so help me God.- President Donald J. Trump, Address to the Nation, 1/8/19

Last night, the 45th President of the United States of America delivered an address to the nation concerning the National Security and Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border.

During his presentation, President Trump was factual, focused, passionate, and presidential as he masterfully laid out the case for securing our border, including provided the reasoning for the $5.6 billion which he is asking for in order to erect a steel barrier to help end the drug trafficking, human trafficking, and breaking and entering of our Sovereign Nation by illegal aliens, some of whom possess criminal records as evidenced by the 266,000 whom ICE Agents have arrested. Others have come into our country and murdered 4,000 of our citizens, committing 100,000 assaults and 30,000 sex crimes.

He also pointed out that, in the past, Democrats have supported building a wall on the Southern Border.

2006 – The New York Times

WASHINGTON, Sept. 29 — The Senate on Friday approved the building of 700 miles of fence along the nation’s southwestern border, fulfilling a demand by conservative Republicans to take steps to slow the flow of illegal immigrants before exploring broader changes to immigration law.

The Senate vote, 80 to 19, came as lawmakers finished a batch of legislation before heading home to campaign.

2013 – Politico.com

The Senate on Thursday passed the most monumental overhaul of U.S. immigration laws in a generation, which would clear the way for millions of undocumented residents to have a chance at citizenship, attract workers from all over the world and devote unprecedented resources for security along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The vote was 68-32. Fourteen Republicans crossed the aisle to vote with all Democrats in favor. Thursday’s vote now puts the onus of immigration reform on the Republican-led House, where leaders have been resistant to the Senate legislation.

“The strong bipartisan vote we took is going to send a message across the country, it’s going to send a message to the other end of the Capitol as well,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), the leader of the so-called Gang of Eight. “The bill has generated a level of support that we believe will be impossible for the House to ignore.

Schumer was wrong. The bill did not make it through the House of Representatives.

After the president spoke last night, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer responded in what came off as desperate, immature, and out-of-touch attempt at a rebuttal on behalf of the Far Left Democratic Party.

Quite Frankly, they sounded more concerned about the inconvenience which delayed paychecks were causing 800,00 Government Workers than they were about the safety of American Citizens, calling all of the violence and human suffering caused by an unsecured Southern Border a “manufactured crisis”, accusing President Trump of “misinformation” and “malice”.

The two Democratic Leaders, giving the appearance of a couple of stereotypical clueless bureaucrats on auto pilot, insisted that the president end the shutdown first and then “we can work to resolve our differences over border security”.

Priorities. Priorities.

Isn’t that the same sort of line that the Democrats handed President Reagan when they got him to bestow amnesty on thousands of illegal aliens back in the day?

“I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today” – Wimpy

Last night’s Democratic Rebuttal was the biggest exercise in hypocrisy since Obama used the horrible mass murder in Sandy Hook to call for gun control, using children as stage props.

Dems in walled mansions shouldn’t throw stones.

As the president so eloquently put it last night,

Some have suggested a barrier is immoral. Then why do wealthy politicians build walls, fences and gates around their homes? They don’t build walls because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside. The only thing that is immoral is for the politicians to do nothing and continue to allow more innocent people to be so horribly victimized.

Indeed.

Why are the “Noble” Dems Defending Grownup DACA Kids and Not the Rights of the Unborn? – A KJ Sunday Morning Reflection

January 21, 2018

obama-punishment

“Today, we focus our attention on the love and protection each person, born and unborn, deserves regardless of disability, gender, appearance, or ethnicity,”  – President Donald J. Trump, March For Life, 1/19/2017

CNSNews.com reports that

A new survey shows that while 51% of Americans describe themselves as “pro-choice,” 56% say abortion is “morally wrong” and 76% want “significant restrictions” on abortion. 

The poll was conducted by the Marist Institute for Public Opinion for the Knights of Columbus, and used the findings of two surveys, one from Dec. 4-7, 2017 and the second from Jan. 8-18, 2018. Marist interviewed 2,617  adults by telephone for the surveys. The margin of error was +/- 2.8 percentage points. 

The survey showed that 44% of Americans identify as “pro-life” and 51% identify as “pro-choice.” Another 4% are “unsure.” These numbers are essentially the same as they were in October 2008 — 44% pro-life and 50% pro-choice. 

However, when asked whether they believe that, “in general, abortion is morally acceptable or morally wrong?” 56% said abortion is “morally wrong,” according to the survey.  41% said abortion is “morally acceptable, and 3% said it was not a moral issue.

Only 12% of Americans said that abortion should be “available to a woman any time during her entire pregnancy.” Also, only 11% said abortion should be available “during the first six months of a pregnancy.”

The other 76% supported some major restrictions on abortion — 26% say abortion “only during the first three months of pregnancy”; 30% say “only in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother”; 12% said abortion “only to save the life of the mother”; and 8% said abortion “should never be permitted under any circumstance.”

“It is hardly surprising that after 50 million abortions in this country, an overwhelming majority of the American people want substantial limits,” said Supreme Knight Carl Anderson. “This survey shows clearly that the ‘pro-choice’ label can no longer be assumed to mean support for abortion on demand. Nor can abortion be thought of as a partisan issue since majorities of Democrats, Independents and Republicans all agree that it should be substantially restricted.”

“It is high time that our political debates reflected this national consensus and used it as a starting point,” said Anderson. 

Other findings from the survey showed that 63% of Americans “support/strongly support” banning abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy except to save the life of the mother.

Also, 64% of Americans believe it is “morally wrong” to abort a child because he or she has a genetic disorder, such as Down syndrome. Only 26% said it was morally acceptable to kill a baby with a genetic disorder.

In addition, 60% “oppose/strongly oppose” using “tax dollars to pay for an abortion.” 

You know, gentle readers, the paradigms through which the Democratic Party chooses their “Moral Causes” to champion  baffles this ol’ Southern boy’s sense of right and wrong.

As I write this, late on a Dixie Saturday Night, OUR Federal Government has been brought to a standstill by a bunch of self-serving professional politicians.

The reason given?

The Dems claim that the shutdown is in defense of DACA, an unconstitutional leftover from the reign of terror that was the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.

The problem with that claim is that this is a budget issue, not a Domestic Policy issue.

The other thing is, those effected by DACA are no longer children.

They grew up.

They Democrats have not.

So, follow along with me, y’all.

The Democrats are willing to shut down our government and sacrifice winning another Midterm or President Election for decades to come, in defense of the progeny of illegal aliens, who while being brought here as children, are now adults, and are in no way “defenseless” as the Dems claim that they are.

Depending on whose information you believe these grown-up “DACA Kids” number between 800,000 and 4,000,000.

While Democrats have been taking care of the “DACA Kids” since 2013, 2, 910,870 American Babies were prematurely yanked from their mothers’ wombs, killed without ever given the opportunity to live.

It is So, why are the Democrats going to the mat for these illegal aliens and ignoring an American Holocaust?

Simple.

They believe that these grown-up DACA Kids will vote for them. With their Political Ideology presently in a Crash and Burn Mode, they are after all of the potential Democratic Voters that they can scrounge up.

If the Dems ever came out against abortion, their friends at Planned Parenthood and their Far Left Base would abandon them they were leprous.

It is a lot more politically expedient for Dems to support Amnesty for the DACA “Kids” while ignoring the stain on our country called abortion.

The DACA Kids have had the opportunity to grow up and be Democratic Voters.

American Babies who have been aborted will never have to opportunity to vote for anyone.

However, oddly enough…Democrats do not view abortion as taking away someone’s “rights”, as they claim that “DACA Kids” have suffered through.

Have you ever tried to have a discussion with an ardent  pro-abortion supporter, either on Facebook or face-to-face? You won’t hear these “Champions of Tolerance” call those innocent lives, babies, human beings, a life, a soul, a gift from God, or anything remotely resembling something that they should feel remorse about killing.

Heck, Pro-Abortionists are opposed to the taking of sonograms of the woman’s womb, before she has an abortion. They’re afraid that the “seed-carrier” will realize that IS a HUMAN BEING inside her, and will decide not to kill that baby.

Here are some thoughts from The Book provided by The Author of Life…the Lion of Judah:

Did not He who made me in the womb make him, And the same one fashion us in the womb? (Job 31:15)

Yet Thou art He who didst bring me forth from the womb; Thou didst make me trust when upon my mother’s breasts. Upon Thee I was cast from birth; Thou hast been my God from my mother’s womb. (Psalm 22:9-10)

For Thou didst form my inward parts; Thou didst weave me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Thy works, And my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from Thee, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth. Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Thy book they were all written, The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them. (Psalm 139:13-16)

Thus says the LORD who made you And formed you from the womb, who will help you, `Do not fear, O Jacob My servant; And you Jeshurun whom I have chosen. (Isaiah 44:2)

Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb, “I, the LORD, am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens by Myself, And spreading out the earth all alone, (Isaiah 44:24)

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5)

Why,  even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not;  you are of more value than many sparrows.”(Luke 12:7 )

From the scientific perspective, Dr. Carlo Bellieni, in his book “Dawn of the I: Pain, Memory, Desire, Dream of the Fetus,” writes:

As soon as it is born, the child shows in a scientifically demonstrable way that it recognizes its mother’s voice and distinguishes it from that of a stranger. Where has he learned that voice other than in the maternal womb?

There are also direct proofs. For example, we register how the movements and cardiac frequency of the fetus vary if we transmit unexpected sounds through the uterine wall. And we see that at first the fetus is startled, then it gets used to it, just like we do when we hear something that does not interest us.

In fact, the scientific evidence is immense. We cannot understand how it can be thought that it becomes a person at a certain point, perhaps when coming out of the uterus.

From the physical point of view, at the birth very little really changes: Air enters the lungs, the arrival of blood from the placenta is interrupted, the type of circulation of blood in the heart changes, and not much more.

As I often say, only blind faith in magic arts or some strange divinity can lead one to think that there is a “human” quality leap at a given moment — certainly not science.

I know that there are some of you that read my blog that are non-believers.  For you and for my Christian brothers and sisters, I offer the following closing thoughts:

There is a curious unique enzyme found in the human body.   Laminin is defined by the Webster Medical Dictionary as a “glycoprotein that is a component of connective tissue basement membrane and that promotes cell adhesion.”  In other words, a glue within the body.

Colossians 1:15-17 tells us:

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

As I stated earlier, I believe that the Democratic Party is not presently shutting down OUR Government over some noble moral cause.

They simply want more Democratic Voters. The DACA Kids provide that need. There is nothing altruistic about what the Dems are doing.

If they wished to be altruistic and noble, the Democrats would agree to defund Planned Parenthood as part of the Budget Compromise.

But, don’t go holding your breath waiting for that to happen.

Aborted babies can’t grow up to be Democratic Voters.

Until He Comes,

“Sorry, Folks. America is Closed.” Dems Shut Down Our Government Over the “Rights” of Illegals

January 20, 2018

Donald_Trump_Chuck_Schumer-2

“This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators. When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform,” – White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders

FoxNews.com reports that

The deadline arrived without a deal. The U.S. government shut down at midnight Friday after Congress failed to overcome a partisan divide over immigration and spending.

In a late-night vote, Senate Democrats joined to block a bill that would have kept the government running until mid-February. A flurry of last-minute negotiations failed to produce an agreement.

Democrats tried to use the Friday night funding deadline to win concessions from Republicans, including an extension of DACA, an Obama-era program protecting some young immigrants from deportation. The program is set to expire in March. Republicans sought more time for talks, but Democrats refused.

The shutdown is only the fourth government closure in a quarter-century. It will only partially curb government operations.

Uniformed service members, health inspectors, and law enforcement officers are set to work without pay. But Social Security and most other safety net programs are unaffected.

If no deal is brokered by Monday, hundreds of thousands of federal employees are set to be furloughed.

The White House and Capitol Hill will be working with skeleton staffs, but some government agencies, like the Environmental Protection Agency, have said they were able to shift funding around to keep most workers on the job. National parks and federal museums will be open, but with potentially reduced services.

Earlier Friday night, President Donald Trump seemed pessimistic that a deal could be reached in time.

“Not looking good for our great Military or Safety & Security on the very dangerous Southern Border,” the president tweeted. “Dems want a Shutdown in order to help diminish the great success of the Tax Cuts, and what they are doing for our booming economy.”

Negotiations, however, continued through the evening, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., working to pass a resolution to keep the government open, White House sources said.

Earlier in the day, demonstrators were seen protesting in support of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in the Russell Senate Office Building. Democrats refused to back a short-term spending bill unless it includes protections for illegal immigrants brought to the country as children.

“Republicans – who control the House, Senate, and WH – are on the verge of making #TrumpShutdown a reality because they refuse to protect DREAMers and provide long-term certainty for our military, the opioid crisis, CHIP, and other key issues,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted late Friday night.

During the day Friday, Schumer met with President Trump at the White House as part of an effort to avert the imminent shutdown.

That meeting came as the White House coined a decidedly Trumpian phrase in the battle to assign blame for the standoff, branding it the “Schumer Shutdown.”

A senior White House official told Fox News that the Trump-Schumer meeting was productive, but there was no deal yet. Still, the president labeled the meeting “excellent” in a tweet.

“Making progress,” Trump wrote, adding that a “four week extension would be best!”

“We had a long and detailed meeting,” Schumer said in a statement. “We discussed all of the major outstanding issues, we made some progress, but we still have a good number of disagreements. The discussions will continue.”

According to a White House source, Schumer arrived in the Oval Office and presented the president with a list of demands on domestic issues that went well beyond just DACA. The president listened to Schumer and appeared perplexed as Schumer rattled off his agenda items, the source said. The president told Schumer he wasn’t going to get all of those demands in a spending bill.

Schumer, the source said, did appear open to considering a continuing resolution that would keep the government funded for five days. The official White House position is still a 30-day extension.

Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney on Friday accused the Democrats of opposing a bill that contains nothing they are against.

“They don’t oppose anything in the bill, but they are opposing the bill,” Mulvaney said, pointing to popular measures in the bill such as funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

Democrats seemed to be aware of the importance of messaging, with Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., taking to the Senate floor with an image declaring the logjam a “Trump Shutdown,” quoting a tweet from President Trump from May saying “our country needs a good ‘shutdown.'”

Markey blasted Republicans complaining about the threat of a shutdown, telling them to “spare me your crocodile tears.”

The Republican-dominated House of Representatives passed a one-month bill Thursday night by a vote of 230-197 that broke down largely along party lines, with 11 Republicans voting no and six Democrats voting yes.

Senate Democrats have said that Democrats want any spending bill to include a fix for DACA. Trump repealed the order in September, and gave Congress a deadline of March to come up with a legislative fix.

“Unless we pass the #DreamAct, I won’t support another short-term funding bill,” Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., tweeted Thursday. “Our Dreamers have waited far too long for a chance to be a part of this country’s future.”

Republicans had hoped to back Democrats into a corner by attaching a six-year CHIP extension to the bill. But Democrats have so far refused to budge.

Republicans have repeatedly put the blame firmly on Democrats’ positioning on DACA as the reason for the looming shutdown.

“Apparently they believe the issue of illegal immigration is more important than anything else, than the government services the American people depend on,” McConnell said.

President Trump has repeatedly urged Congress to keep the government open, warning that a shutdown will harm the U.S. military. The White House announced that Trump would not travel to Florida, as previously scheduled, until the continuing resolution is signed.

What caused the Democrats to shut down OUR Government?

On June 15, 2012, President Obama issued an executive order enacting his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which essentially put into effect various aspects of the DREAM Act. Specifically, the DACA order gave lawful permanent residency status and work authorization to anyone who: (a) had arrived in America illegally as a minor; (b) had lived in the U.S. for at least five years; (c) was either a current student or a high-school graduate; or (d) had served in the military and was not yet 35 years old.

With this executive order, Obama did precisely what he had said, numerous times, that he had no constitutional authority to do. For example, in a July 2011 speech to the National Council of La Raza, the president stated: “Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own. Believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you. Not just on immigration reform. But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.”

Why would Obama have done something like that?

Simple. He was preparing to capitalize on predicted future migratory trends in order to grow his political party.

Obama created a charity which rewarded the breaking and entering of our Sovereign Country at American Taxpayers’ expense.

And now, rather than secure our country’s Southern Border and fund our Best and Brightest, our American Armed Forces, the Far Left Democratic Party has shut down our Federal Government in defense of 800,000 ILLEGAL ALIENS.

And, here is the most paradoxical and hypocritical part of this whole fiasco: The Democrats couldn’t give a ticker’s damn about the “Dreamers” as individuals. They are simply a “political tool” which they are using en masse to continue the “radical change” begun under the Obama Administration…forcefully devolving America from a Constitutional Republic to a Democratic Socialist Third World S—hole.

The Democrats kept on pursuing their tone-deaf political strategy of the defense of DACA, believing that the Republicans would cave in,

What they underestimated, or perhaps completely overlooked, blocked by their upturned snooty noses, was the backbone and determination of “Citizen Statesman” Donald J. Trump, the 45th president of the United States of America.

As Trump has proven in the last almost 13 months, he does not participate in the usual Political Games, which have been played for decades up on Capitol Hill.

What we have been witnessing for the past year, is a battle between tired political strategy, which has only succeeded in harming our nation and not helping it, and the tools which a non-politician has brought to the Presidency: courage conviction, common sense, and “the Art of the Deal”.

Trump has been playing a game of chicken with Congressional Democrats and their enablers, the Vichy Republicans…and, they blinked first.

Trump has made Congress work harder for their money, while inadvertently showing their colors to their constituencies, than any president has in decades.

The bottom line is that the politically bestowed “rights” of these “Dreamers” do not supersede the right of Americans to secure our Southern Border and becoming an American Citizen is NOT A RIGHT.

It is a privilege.

Let’s pretend I broke into your house. When you discover me there, you insist I leave. But I say, “I’ve made all the beds, washed the dishes, did the laundry, and cleaned the floors; I’ve done all the work you don’t like to do. I’m hardworking and honest (except for breaking into your house). Not only must you let me stay, you must also add me to your insurance plan, educate my kids, and provide these benefits to my husband, too (he will do your yard work, he’s honest and hardworking too–except for that breaking in part). If you try to force me out, I will call my friends who will picket your house and proclaim my right to be there! It’s only fair, because you have a nicer house than I do, and I’m trying to better myself. I’m hardworking and honest…except for, well, you know. I will live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of selfishness and prejudice.

Oh yeah, I want you to learn my language so you can communicate with me.”

Good plan…don’t you think?

Is this a behavior we should be rewarding?

Foxnews.com reports that

President Donald Trump said Thursday that Republican congressional leaders were “very much on board” with negotiations to protect so-called “Dreamers”— hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who were brought into the U.S. illegally — from deportation.  
 
However, the president also vowed “there will be no amnesty” and pushed back against claims by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., that a deal had been reached at a White House dinner Wednesday night. 

“We’re working on a plan subject to getting massive border controls. We’re working on a plan for DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). People want to see that happen,” Trump told reporters in Florida while surveying damage from Hurricane Irma. He added: “‘I think we’re fairly close but we have to get massive border security.”

After Trump landed in Florida, he declared repeatedly, “If we don’t have a wall, we’re doing nothing.”

Schumer and Pelosi issued a joint statement following the dinner announcing a broad agreement on immigration. On the Senate floor Thursday morning, Schumer insisted that both sides were in agreement and there was no dispute.

“If you listen to the president’s comments this morning … it is clear that what Leader Pelosi and I put out last night was exactly accurate,” said Schumer. “We have reached an understanding on this issue. We have to work out details, and we can work together on a border security package with the White House and get DACA on the floor quickly.”

Indeed, in the face of ferocious pushback from conservative lawmakers and media outlets including Breitbart, run by former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, the White House appeared focused more on shaping presentation of the agreement, than on denying it outright.

“By no means was any deal ever reached,” White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters told reporters aboard Air Force One as the president traveled to Florida. “This is something that Congress needs to work on.”

But Breitbart was already labeling Trump “Amnesty Don.”

“The Trump administration will not be discussing amnesty,” Walters said. The president wants “a responsible path forward in immigration reform. That could include legal citizenship over a period of time. But absolutely by no means will this White House discuss amnesty,” she said, although most conservatives would consider “legal citizenship over a period of time” to meet the definition of amnesty.

The House’s foremost immigration hard-liner, Rep. Steve  King, R-Iowa, addressed Trump over Twitter, writing that if the reports were true, “Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair. No promise is credible.”

Schumer and Pelosi said in a statement that the details on border security needed to be negotiated, that both sides agreed “the wall would not be any part of this agreement” and that Trump said he would pursue the wall later.

And soon after, Trump appeared to confirm that approach. “The wall will come later, we’re right now renovating large sections of wall, massive sections, making it brand new,” he told reporters before his Florida trip.

He also said Republican congressional leaders, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., favored his approach on the immigration program. “Ryan and McConnell agree with us on DACA,” Trump said, adding that he had spoken to them by telephone.

Ryan, meanwhile, was adamant after speaking with Trump and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly that no agreement had been reached.

“The president wasn’t negotiating a deal last night. The president was talking with Democratic leaders to get their perspectives,” he told reporters on Capitol Hill.

Republicans in Congress, meanwhile, tried to make sense of the confusion.

“Slow down the trains, there’s no agreement,” said Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va., who warned” ”You can make a deal all you want, it’s got to get past the House and the Senate.”

In a series of tweets Thursday, Trump expressed empathy for the nearly 800,000 young people — many brought to the United States as toddlers or children — who were protected from deportation and given work permits under DACA.

“Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!” he tweeted Thursday.”

Trump announced last week that his administration was rescinding the program, but gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix.

The back-and-forth comes as the president has suddenly turned to Democrats to jump-start his legislative imperatives. Only days ago, Trump and the Democratic leaders agreed to back a three-month extension of the debt limit in order to speed hurricane assistance.

The backlash that President Trump has received from Conservative Voters, who are afraid that he is going back on his word that he will not grant amnesty to those who are here illegally, has been “Yuge!” and uglier than Rosie O’ Donnell in a thong bikini.

Hold on. I almost made myself throw up.

If the President were to change his mind and offer blanket amnesty to those whom Barack Hussein Obama named “Dreamers”, he would be intentionally bypassing the normal process of legal Immigration, including one very important part, which all immigrants, who wish to be Americans must pledge:

I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.

A little over a month after I started Kingjester’s Blog, on May 18, 2010, a young man named Benito wrote me to me in the comments section. Benito, an activist for the cause of Illegal Immigration, insisted that the situation of people in this country illegally, was one of “Civil Rights”. This is how I responded to him:

Benito, I approved your comment to ask you a few questions. First, you write very well. Next, a few questions. What part of the word “illegal” do you not understand? What makes the current influx of illegal immigrants exempt from the rules and regulations that every other generation of immigrants to this country had to abide by in order to become legal citizens of the greatest nation in the world? By being here illegally, you are not entitled to the same rights as natural-born or naturalized American citizens. You are no better than someone who breaks into someone’s home, does their dishes, cuts their yard, cleans their house, and then helps themselves to their food and drives their car without asking. This is in no way a human rights issue. Freedom is God-given. And with freedom comes responsibility. With citizenship comes responsibility, like paying taxes and making your own way. Illegal immigration reminds me of the amorous boyfriend who wants everything a young woman will give him, but will leave her at the first mention of marriage. I wish you no ill, amigo, but understand this: This is not a civil rights issue. Illegals do not have the same rights as American Citizens. With our rights, come the responsibilities of being an American citizen. The Mexican flag, by protocol, will always be flown in a subordinate position to the American Flag in this country. And, the American Dialect of the English language is the language spoken in this country.

Vaya con Dios.

If Trump has a “Read My Lips” moment, his decision will have detrimental consequences for average Americans and our Sovereign Nation.

And, any plans he might have for a reelection bid.

What makes those benefiting from DACA, who wish to stay here forever, exempt from the rules and regulations that every other generation of immigrants to this country had to abide by in order to become legal citizens of the greatest nation in the world?

These “Dreamers” must go through the same immigration process that other generations of immigrants have gone through.

Or, a stringent, controlled pathway to citizenship that will end with them going through the same procedures as all other legal immigrants before them.

As another President wrote, some 110 years ago…

In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people. – Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Mr. President, please listen to those of us who believed in you, supported you, and elected you.

FORGET AMNESTY. BUILD THE WALL.

The Politicization of Superman: From “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” to Pandering, Social Justice, and the Liberal Way

September 14, 2017

 

george-reeves-as-superman

On Saturday Mornings growing up in the 60s in Memphis, TN, like every other red-blooded American Male, my eyes would pop open at 6:00 a.m. and I would race into the den to turn on Channel 3, the local CBS Affiliate, and would settle down with my bowl of cereal to watch “The Adventures of Superman” starring George Reeves.

As the program came on, I would hear the following narration, which would be come engrained into the hearts of American boys and girls of that era for the rest of their lives…

Narrator: Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Man 1: Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird.

Woman: It’s a plane

Man 2: It’s Superman!

Narrator: Yes, it’s Superman, strange visitor from another planet who came to earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men. Superman, who can change the course of mighty rivers, bend steel in his bare hands. And who, disguised as Clark Kent, mild-mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper, fights a never ending battle for truth, justice and the American way. And now another exciting episode in the adventures of Superman.

Well, boys and girls, evidently, the Liberals at DC Comics, up there in New York City have decided that “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” just isn’t “cool” anymore.

So, they decided that Superman needed to side with those who have broken our laws and entered our Sovereign Nation illegally.

According to The Hollywood Reporter in an article titled “Superman Protects Undocumented Workers From Armed White Supremacist in Latest Comic”…

The moment in the book released Wednesday comes a week after President Trump ended DACA. 

Perhaps it is just a coincidence, but perhaps not. 

In the recent issue of Action Comics #987, “The Oz Effect,” released Wednesday, Superman arrives in the nick of time to protect a group of undocumented immigrants from a white man sporting an American flag bandanna, wielding a machine gun, who is going to shoot them for taking his job. 

Superman blocks the bullets before they hit the terrified people. 

“Stop this!” Superman orders the gunman.

“Why?!” he responds. “They ruined me! Stole from me!” 

Grabbing the gunman by the collar and pulling him in close, Superman says, “The only person responsible for the blackness smothering your soul — is you!” 

Police arrive, and Superman hands over the gunman and tells officers to make sure the victims are “safe and cared for.” An officer responds, “Anything you say, Superman!” 

The moment comes just one week after President Donald Trump made the controversial announcement that he was ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy put in place by former President Barack Obama. He then gave Congress a window to save the program.

Still, the decision was decried by politicians, civil groups and celebrities alike. Nearly 800,000 individuals, known as Dreamers, have received protection to stay in the country through the program. 

In addition to the DACA announcement, Trump was also slammed for comments he made just a few weeks prior when he appeared to be defending a group of white nationalists holding a rally in Charlottesville, Va., at which one protester to the rally was killed and numerous others injured. 

Action Comics #987 is by Dan Jurgens, Viktor Bogdanovic, Jonathan Glapion, Jay Leisten and Mike Spicer. 

I posted this story today, because the Far Left Side of the Political Spectrum, which took over the Democratic Party and evidently, the Comic Book Industry as well, has so turned our country’s traditions and values on it’s ear, that, to them and those young skulls full of mush whom they were able to brainwash, right is wrong and wrong is right.

The “Day Without Immigrants”, which was held seven months ago, is one such example.

They purposely left one very important word out of the title of their “mass demonstration”:

ILLEGAL.

Since the birth of our nation, immigrants from all over the world, have made long and treacherous journeys to this “Shining City Upon a Hill, where they came to become AMERICANS, swearing an Oath of Allegiance to OUR COUNTRY, an oath taken “without hesitation or purpose of evasion”.

They came here in compliance with our nation’s laws.

These Illegal Aliens, including the overwhelming influx of tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors, which were dropped off at our border by the Drug Cartels, during the Obama Administration and secreted away to be dispersed throughout the country, are not the same, no matter what Modern American Liberals claim.

By refusing to enter our country by the legal and proper way in which millions of legal immigrants did before them, they show a disdain and disregard of our nations laws, as does the Main Stream Media who refuse to identify them properly as ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, as well as the preening politicians who are so eager to forgive them of their crime.

THESE LAWBREAKERS ARE NOT AMERICANS. …NOT UNTIL THEY ENTER OUR SOVEREIGN NATION IN THE RIGHT WAY, AND SWEAR THEIR ALLEGIANCE AND LOYALTY TO IT.

BEING AN AMERICAN IS NOT A RIGHT. IT IS A PRIVILEGE.

And no hysterical Pajamaboys or hairy under-armed Liberal women, trying to stifle free speech by shouting down Conservative Politicians or average Americans at these Town Hall Meetings are going to change that fact.

Liberals, on both sides of the Political Aisle, have continuously masked their true intentions for the political usefulness, in granting amnesty to illegal aliens, by swathing it in the noble rhetoric of “Civil Rights” and “Social Justice”.

In reality, is the fact that these Professional Politicians could care less about the well-being of illegal aliens. They are simply recruiting new Democrat Voters.

President-elect Trump’s stance on illegal immigration is one of the campaign promises that got him elected.

American’s begrudge no man or woman the opportunity to legally enter our country and contribute to our economy.

It is those who wish to break into our Sovereign Nation and live of off average Americans’ tax-derived “charity” that we have a problem with.

DC and the other contributors to the Comic Book Industry do themselves no favors by taking a Liberal Stance in their publications.

Per CNSNews.com

More Americans identify themselves as conservative than as liberal or moderate, a new Gallup poll says. While the percentage of conservatives has stayed about the same since the early 1990s, the percentage of liberals has increased and the percentage of moderates has fallen.  

The poll found that in 2016, 36 percent of Americans said they are conservative, compared with 25 percent who identified as liberal (up from 17 percent in the 1990s); and 34 percent who identified as moderate (down from 43 percent in the early 1990s).

The poll that the excerpt refers to came out on January 3, 2017.

The fact is poll after poll show that Americans oppose amnesty for illegal aliens.

Is it any wonder that comic book sales as a whole are down this year?

Comics are overpriced and over-politicized.

Whether it is the trend of changing superheroes identities for the sake of “diversity” such as Marvel has done ( An Asian Kid becoming the Hulk?, Thor becoming a girl? Really?)…

Or the trend of championing Liberal causes which the majority of Americans living between the coasts don’t agree with, as evidenced by the results of the 2016 Presidential Election…

Liberal Comic Book Writers, Editors, and Publishers are finding themselves in the same position as their friends over on the Left Coast in Hollywood…

Out-of-touch with their audience.

And, bombing at the “Box Office”.

President Trump to Rescind DACA Today. Why That’s a Good Thing.

August 29, 2017

DACA-DC-large.jpg

Vichy Republican Liz Mair, who last August called Future President Donald J. Trump a “loudmouthed d!ck” , live on CNN, tweeted last night that today will be the day that President Trump rescinds DACA.

What’s DACA? I’m glad you asked.

In 2012, the Obama Administration created a program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), that allowed eligible young unauthorized immigrants to apply for a two-year reprieve from deportation and a work permit.

Why would Obama have done something like that?

Simple. He was preparing to capitalize on predicted future migratory trends.

On June 9, 2014, in a post titled “President Barack Hussein Obama and the Mexican Munchkin Migration” , I wrote…

“If you haven’t been noticing, for the last few weeks, a Mexican Munchkin Migration of young, unaccompanied minors has been coming across our Southern Border illegally. These uninvited guests have pushed our nation’s immigration system to the point of slitting wide open. Due to the enormity of the situation, immigration authorities have had to find a place for these migrating munchkins in a hurry, housing thousands in a San Antonio Air Force base, a California Navy base, and a makeshift detention center in Nogales.

The AP has since reported that the Nogales warehouse was running out of supplies.

According to Bowe Bengdahl’s new best friend, President Barack Hussein Obama, this unprecedented situation is due to “unrest in Central American countries”. However, Republican critics say that this situation is the result of an executive action that Obama ordered in 2012, calling this munchkin migration “an administration-made disaster.”

That Executive Action was the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which allowed some illegal aliens who came to America as minors to defer deportation for two years. Last week, the administration announced guidelines for how these lawbreakers could defer deportation for a further two years.

DACA is not applicable to anyone coming across the border today. Only illegal aliens who were brought to the US as minors before June 15, 2007, are eligible. However, the Republicans say that DACA created the opportunity for misinformation and confusion.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R) of Virginia, one of the “movers and shakers” in “Immigration Reform” efforts on Capitol Hill, wrote in a statement last week.

Word has gotten out around the world about President Obama’s lax immigration enforcement policies and it has encouraged more individuals to come to the United States illegally.

The actual numbers will blow your mind.

In the 10 years before 2012, according to a Department of Health and Human Services fact sheet, the federal government agency tasked with caring for unaccompanied minors who cross the border illegally handled an average of 7,000 to 8,000 cases a year. In fiscal year 2011, the number was 6,560.

Per an internal memo cited by The New York Times., in fiscal year 2013, the number jumped to 13,625. This fiscal year, ending Sept. 30, 2014, the feds estimate that the number may reach 80,000,

Obama proclaimed the situation a “humanitarian crisis” last Monday. Poverty and violence are driving the migration, according the him and his Administration. But wait, there’s more:

On top of all this, the Administration announced last Friday that at it was going to provide, lawyers (USING TAXPAYER MONEY) TO provide lawyers for the Mexican Munchkin Migration, in order to keep these children from being sent back to whence they came. Obama’s scheme calls for the issuing of $2 million (OF TAXPAYER MONEY) in grants to enroll about 100 lawyers and paralegals to represent these illegal aliens children, who have been purposefully shipped across our border.

According to a statement released by Attorney General Eric Holder,

We’re taking a historic step to strengthen our justice system and protect the rights of the most vulnerable members of society. How we treat those in need, particularly young people who must appear in immigration proceedings — many of whom are fleeing violence, persecution, abuse or trafficking — goes to the core of who we are as a nation.

Uh huh.  So says the AG who refused to prosecute Black Panthers for intimidating people at a Cleveland Voting Precinct.”

At the time, I also wrote…

There is something very sinister  about the unexpected migration of tens of thousands of minors across our Southern Borders. This is a set-up for something bigger.

JUST HOW DID TENS OF THOUSAND OF CHILDREN JUST HAPPEN TO ARRIVE AT OUR SOUTHERN BORDER…ALL AT THE SAME TIME???!!!

WHERE ARE THEIR PARENTS AND ARE THEY ARRIVING LATER?

AND, WILL THEY BE REGISTERED AS DEMOCRAT VOTERS?”

Hindsight being 20/20 and now, after observing “Scooter” in action for 8 long years, I believe it is quite possible that DACA was put in place exactly for the reason that I feared at the time.

Simply put, it was a way to circumvent the vetting process that goes along with becoming an American Citizen in the right and legal way.

As they are showing Americans now, the Far Left-run Democratic Party thrives on division and chaos…even if they have to create it themselves.

DACA was designed to further divide us , in order to increase the power of the Democrats’ “New Politboro” that they were envisioning as their future until we average Americans here in the Heartland spoiled their plans by electing Donald J. Trump as our 45th President.

Now, thank God, we have a President who believes that we are a Nation of Laws, not Machiavellian Machinations inspired by Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky.

As President Theodore Roosevelt once wrote,

In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people. – Theodore Roosevelt 1907

If you wish to come to this country, you are welcome here…as long as you go through the same legal process as those who have gone before you to make their home here, to become American Citizens, and to swear their loyalty to our Sovereign Nation.

Hire More Police or Remain a Sanctuary City? Chicago’s Rahm Emmanuel is Stuck Between a Thug and a Safe Space

August 5, 2017

Rahm-Emanuel

On Wednesday, AG Jeff Sessions reported that there would be new restrictions placed on Sanctuary Cities…

According to Breitbart.com

In a statement through the Department of Justice (DOJ), Sessions said sanctuary cities would not be allowed to participate in the Public Safety Partnership program until they prove that they have properly dropped their status and made efforts to reduce violent crimes by illegal aliens.

“By protecting criminals from immigration enforcement, cities and states with so-called ‘sanctuary’ policies make all of us less safe,” Sessions said in the statement. “We saw that just last week, when an illegal alien who had been deported twenty times and was wanted by immigration authorities allegedly sexually assaulted an elderly woman in Portland, a city that refuses to cooperate with immigration enforcement.”

“By forcing police to go into more dangerous situations to re-arrest the same criminals, these policies endanger law enforcement officers more than anyone,” Sessions continued. “The Department of Justice is committed to supporting our law enforcement at every level, and that’s why we’re asking ‘sanctuary’ jurisdictions to stop making their jobs harder.”

“By taking simple, common-sense considerations into account, we are encouraging every jurisdiction in this country to cooperate with federal law enforcement,” Sessions said. “That’s what 80 percent of the American people want them to do, and that will ultimately make all of us safer—especially law enforcement on our streets.”

Then, yesterday, WLSAM.com reported that

Mayor Emanuel says he’s going to sue the Trump Justice Dept on Monday over its new Sanctuary City rules.New rules just out prevent Sanctuary Cities like Chicago to get certain law enforcement grants and so the mayor says Chicago will file suit to kill the rules and get the millions in question.

In an interview with WLS-AM for Sunday’s edition of “Bill Cameron and Connected to Chicago”, the mayor said “We are not going to be put in a position of choosing who we are as a welcoming city and strengthening our police dept. These are exactly the kind of training and technology you want to be investing in right now and also do it in a way that the community’s involved.”

The Mayor also tells Cameron that he’s no longer Bruce Rauner’s friend, even as Rauner said this week he still considers the two of them to be friends.

So, basically, “Tiny Dancer” wants to have his burrito and eat it, too.

Emmanuel, in the great tradition of Chicago Politics, wants to defy Federal Law and provide safe harbor for those who are in our country illegally, in defiance of our laws.

However, at the same time, he is accutely aware that the gangs have taken over the city and the bodies of those Chicagoans who are murdered nightly through gang and other violence are stacking up like cordwood.

What’s a Liberal Democrat Mayor to do?

If he allows ICE to sweep through Chicago, round up the illegal aliens and transport them home, Emmanuel loses the biggest Democrat voting bloc since Sam “Momo” Giancana arranged for Dead Chicagoans to vote for JFK.

Chicago Homicide Watch reported yesterday that

At least 14 people were killed last week as Chicago passed the 400-homicide mark for the year nearly a week ahead of last year’s pace, when the homicides numbers were the highest in two decades. The victims included a mother shot while walking with her young son, and a man stabbed to death in a luxury apartment, a crime which has sparked a nationwide manhunt.

Mayor Emmanuel wants to enforce the law and break it at the same time.

Liberal Democrats are always the first to manufacture some sort of “oppressed” people.

However, they are also the first to holler “POLICE”! when their own lives are threatened.

Unless ol’ Rahm can get violent crime in Chicago under control, there will be no tax dollars left to bribe the illegal aliens with to go to the polls and vote for Democrats in the next election.

And, if he were to get the funding for more police officers, what’s “Tiny Dancer” going to tell the new recruits?

Arrest the Gang Bangers but leave the Illegals?

To borrow from a famous phrase in the Classic Movie, “The Godfather”..

Wouldn’t that be like saying

Leave the gun. Take the cannoli?

Only in this case it would be

Take the thugs. Leave the illegals.

Democrat Political Activist Judge Blocks Defunding of “Sanctuary Cities”

April 26, 2017

sanctuary-600-li-2

“I’m very much opposed to sanctuary cities. They breed crime. There’s a lot of problems.” – President Trump, interview with Bill O’Reilly, formerly of Fox News, Feb. 5. 2017

The Associated Press reported yesterday that

A federal judge on Tuesday blocked President Donald Trump’s attempt to withhold funding from “sanctuary cities” that do not cooperate with U.S. immigration officials, saying the president has no authority to attach new conditions to federal spending. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the preliminary injunction in two lawsuits – one brought by the city of San Francisco, the other by Santa Clara County – against an executive order targeting communities that protect immigrants from deportation.

The injunction will stay in place while the lawsuits work their way through court.

The judge rejected the administration’s argument that the executive order applies only to a relatively small pot of money and said Trump cannot set new conditions on spending approved by Congress.

Even if the president could do so, those conditions would have to be clearly related to the funds at issue and not coercive, as the executive order appeared to be, Orrick said.

“Federal funding that bears no meaningful relationship to immigration enforcement cannot be threatened merely because a jurisdiction chooses an immigration enforcement strategy of which the president disapproves,” the judge said.

It was the third major setback for the administration on immigration policy.

White House chief of staff Reince Priebus described the ruling as another example of the “9th Circuit going bananas.”

The administration has often criticized the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Orrick does not sit on that court but his district is in the territory of the appeals court, which has ruled against one version of Trump’s travel ban.

“The idea that an agency can’t put in some reasonable restriction on how some of these moneys are spent is something that will be overturned eventually, and we will win at the Supreme Court level at some point,” Priebus said.

San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera praised the ruling and said the president was “forced to back down.”

“This is why we have courts – to halt the overreach of a president and an attorney general who either don’t understand the Constitution or chose to ignore it,” Herrera said in a statement.

Santa Clara County Counsel James Williams said the ruling will allow cities and counties across the country to prepare budgets without the “unconstitutional threat of federal defunding hanging over our heads.”

A Justice Department attorney, Chad Readler, previously defended the president’s executive order as an attempt to use his “bully pulpit” to “encourage communities and states to comply with the law.”

Readler also said the order applied to only three Justice Department and Homeland Security grants that would affect less than $1 million for Santa Clara County and possibly no money for San Francisco.

But the judge said the executive order was written broadly to reach all federal grants and potentially jeopardized hundreds of millions of dollars in funding to San Francisco and Santa Clara.

He cited comments by the president and Attorney General Jeff Sessions as evidence of the order’s scope and said the president himself had called it a “weapon” to use against recalcitrant cities.

The government hasn’t cut off any money yet or declared any communities to be sanctuary cities. But the Justice Department sent letters last week advising communities to prove they are in compliance. California was informed it could lose $18.2 million.

“Sanctuary cities” is a loosely defined term for jurisdictions that don’t comply with immigration authorities.

The Trump administration argued that the executive order applied narrowly to cities that forbid officials from reporting people’s immigration status to federal authorities. But Orrick said it could also be construed to apply to cities that refuse to hold jail inmates for immigration authorities.

The Trump administration says sanctuary cities allow dangerous criminals back on the street and that the order is needed to keep the country safe. San Francisco and other sanctuary cities say turning local police into immigration officers erodes the trust that is needed to get people to report crime.

The order has also led to lawsuits by Seattle; two Massachusetts cities, Lawrence and Chelsea; and a third San Francisco Bay Area government, the city of Richmond. The San Francisco and Santa Clara County lawsuits were the first to get a hearing before a judge.

On Tuesday, mayors from several cities threatened with the loss of federal grants emerged from a meeting with Sessions saying they remain confused about how to prove their police are in compliance with immigration policies.

The sanctuary city order was among a flurry of immigration measures Trump signed after taking office in January, including a ban on travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries and a directive calling for a wall on the Mexican border.

A federal appeals court blocked the travel ban. The administration then revised it, but the new version also is stalled in court.

So, San Francisco is more worried about losing Federal Money that the danger posed from harboring fugitives…because that it exactly what Illegal aliens are: Fugitives, who have broken our laws by entering our Sovereign Nation illegally.

While Liberals attempt to portray illegals as all being angelic in nature, that narrative has been debunked tragically over and over again.

More than all the rest of the “Sanctuary Cities” in America, San Francisco should be ashamed of itself for being more worried about receiving Federal Aid for harboring Illegal Aliens than they are about the safety and welfare of their citizens.

From The New York Times, July 7, 2015…

The case of a Mexican laborer with a lengthy criminal record who was charged on Tuesday in the fatal shooting of an American woman on a pier in San Francisco has exposed a gulf of mistrust and failed communication between the federal authorities and the police in California over immigration enforcement.

The man, most recently known as Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, 56, pleaded not guilty in Superior Court in San Francisco in the murder of Kathryn Steinle, 32, who was strolling last Wednesday with her father and a friend on Pier 14 near the Ferry Building when she was struck in what the police described as a random shooting. Mr. Lopez-Sanchez, whose criminal record includes seven felony convictions, had been deported from the United States five times, raising questions about why he was in the United States.

Questions were also raised late Tuesday about the gun used in the killing. A law enforcement official confirmed local media reports that the serial number showed the gun belonged to a federal agent. The official declined to be identified because he was not authorized to speak publicly.

But wait, boys and girls…that’s not all.

The plot sickens

Federal Judge William Orrick III, who on Tuesday blocked President Trump’s order to withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities, reportedly bundled hundreds of thousands of dollars for President Barack Obama.

Orrick, of the Northern District of California, issued an injunction against the Trump administration after the city of San Francisco and county of Santa Clara sued over the president’s plan to withhold federal funds from municipalities that harbor illegal immigrants.

As FoxNews.com reported:

The ruling from U.S. District Judge William Orrick III in San Francisco said that Trump’s order targeted broad categories of federal funding for sanctuary governments, and that plaintiffs challenging the order were likely to succeed in proving it unconstitutional. 

The decision will block the measure for now, while the federal lawsuit works its way through the courts.

The news comes on the heels of the Department of Justice threatening on Friday to cut off funding to eight so-called “sanctuary cities,” unless they were able to provide proof to the federal government that they weren’t looking the other way when it came to undocumented immigrants.

The same judge issued a restraining order in 2015 against the advocacy group responsible for undercover videos purporting to show Planned Parenthood employees plotting to sell baby organs.

At the time, The Federalist found that Orrick raised at least $200,000 for Obama and donated more than $30,000 to groups supporting him.

So, the judge is a Democrat Political Hack.

I’m shocked. Shocked, I tell you.

According to Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, in the following Federalist Paper, Americans have nothing to fear from the Judiciary when they act alone. It’s when they act in concert with others, such as Liberal Politicians in Congress, that Americans need to be afraid.

From The Federalist #78

Whoever attentively considers the different departments of power must perceive, that, in a government in which they are separated from each other, the judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution; because it will be least in a capacity to annoy or injure them. The Executive not only dispenses the honors, but holds the sword of the community. The legislature not only commands the purse, but prescribes the rules by which the duties and rights of every citizen are to be regulated. The judiciary, on the contrary, has no influence over either the sword or the purse; no direction either of the strength or of the wealth of the society; and can take no active resolution whatever. It may truly be said to have neither FORCE nor WILL, but merely judgment; and must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm even for the efficacy of its judgments.

This simple view of the matter suggests several important consequences. It proves incontestably, that the judiciary is beyond comparison the weakest of the three departments of power1; that it can never attack with success either of the other two; and that all possible care is requisite to enable it to defend itself against their attacks. It equally proves, that though individual oppression may now and then proceed from the courts of justice, the general liberty of the people can never be endangered from that quarter; I mean so long as the judiciary remains truly distinct from both the legislature and the Executive. For I agree, that “there is no liberty, if the power of judging be not separated from the legislative and executive powers.”2 And it proves, in the last place, that as liberty can have nothing to fear from the judiciary alone, but would have every thing to fear from its union with either of the other departments; that as all the effects of such a union must ensue from a dependence of the former on the latter, notwithstanding a nominal and apparent separation; that as, from the natural feebleness of the judiciary, it is in continual jeopardy of being overpowered, awed, or influenced by its co-ordinate branches; and that as nothing can contribute so much to its firmness and independence as permanency in office, this quality may therefore be justly regarded as an indispensable ingredient in its constitution, and, in a great measure, as the citadel of the public justice and the public security.

Do you think that Hamilton foresaw the rise of Activist Judges, whose sole purpose, working in concert with an out-of-power Political Party, to sabotage a president trying to protect American Citizens?

Why should we allow people into our country who want to kill us?

What about other Presidents? How did they feel about “multi-culturalism” and allowing people in who do not wish to become a part of our citizenry?

In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.” – Theodore Roosevelt,

Believe or not, a legendary Democrat Leader agreed with Trump on what should be done with those who have broken our laws by entering our Sovereign Nation illegally.

The last bipartisan U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform happened during President ill “Bubba” Clinton’s tenure. Bubba appointed former congresswoman and Democratic icon Barbara Jordan as its chair. Jordan came from humble beginnings to become a lawyer and the first Southern black woman elected to the House of Representatives. A DEMOCRAT, she was a leader in the civil rights movement, a professor of ethics, a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and a world-class orator (two of her speeches are considered among the greatest of the 20th century). Her appointment gave the commission instant credibility. According to Jordan, she believed her responsibility as the head of the commission was to restore credibility to the U.S. immigration system. On the issue of illegal immigration, Jordan was very clear and succinct:

Unlawful immigration is unacceptable. Those who should not be here will be required to leave.

So, why are these Democratic Mayors refusing to abide by our nation’s laws by vowing to continue to HABOR FUGITIVES?

Liberals, on both sides of the Political Aisle, have continuously masked their true intentions for the political usefulness, in their incessant push to grant blanket amnesty to Illegal Aliens, by swathing it in the noble rhetoric of “Civil Rights” and “Social Justice”.

What makes the current influx of illegal immigrants exempt from the rules and regulations that every other generation of immigrants to this country had to abide by in order to become legal citizens of the greatest nation in the world? By being here illegally, they are not entitled to the same rights as natural-born or naturalized American citizens.

And, yet, even as I write this, they are in our hospitals, taking advantage of our charity and the finest health care system in the world, and driving our streets, with either forged drivers licenses or those obtained from states who have acquiesced and given them to these “undocumented workers”.

This is in no way a human rights issue.

Freedom is God-given, and with freedom comes responsibility. With citizenship comes responsibility, like paying taxes and making your own way.

America became a great nation because it is a melting pot of American-born and legally-immigrated citizens with a shared allegiance, not a multi-cultural United Nations with everyone loyal to their home country.

Too many brave Americans have died to keep our flag flying over our Sovereign Nation for that flag to be flown below any other country’s.

America First.

Until He Comes,
