Mexican Flag Over ICE Facility Is NOT The Fringe Of The Democratic Party

Another GOP ad is writing itself as Democrat-supporting protesters took down an American flag over an ICE facility in Colorado, defaced it and raised it upside down, vandalized a Blue Lives Matter flag and then raised the Mexican flag above the federal facility. The Mexican flag.

I would like to say these are just fringe extremists, but are they?

A leading Democrat presidential contender, U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris (from California) calls this basic, at one point  bipartisan law enforcement “crimes against humanity.” Sure, that’s not overboard at all. And it’s not like she was California Attorney General or anything in charge of law enforcement. She is obviously not fringe. In fact, most of the Democratic candidates have come out opposed to the ICE law enforcement actions and for de facto open borders.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (also from California, naturally) the second most powerful leader in the country and most power Democrat at the moment, is openly advising people here illegally who have retainer warrants on them how to avoid arrest by ICE agents. She has the ability to move legislation changing the law if she does not like it. But instead, she is helping people violate the law — which last I knew means she is an accessory to crime, along with endless other Democratic officeholders, such as the new mayor of Chicago, who are doing the same thing. Again, not at all on the fringe.

No, this is more mainstream Democratic Party, at least among leadership if not rank-and-file.

In fact, you are hard-pressed to find a Democratic leader who will condemn it.

Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, who is running for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination, was asked Sunday if the protesters should be condemned. He refused to say they should be.

“Well, I certainly respect the American flag, and my whole life I’ve been fighting to make this country…and to make sure this country welcomes everybody, and that this flag represents everyone,” Hickenlooper said on “America’s News HQ.”

When pressed on whether he would say they were wrong and shouldn’t do it, the best he could muster was: “I think there are better ways to unite us.”

I realize the knee-jerk reaction of the Democratic Party today is that if Trump says up, they say down; if he says black they say white; if he says cancer is bad they say he’s a racist (because that’s just the default comeback when stymied.)

But this is an amazing position.

Long, long ago, in the ancient days of the Republic when Barack Obama was president, ICE conducted these actions all the time. Obama defended himself against the activists masquerading as journalists on Telemundo by saying he had to, because he’s “not a king.” It’s good to know he actually realized that. His Department of Homeland Security chief, Jeh Johnson, said these law enforcement actions are right because all of the judicial appeals have been exhausted and these people are in the country illegally. It’s the frickitydiddle law.

Further, some of these illegal immigrants have also committed other crimes while here. Because lawless sanctuary cities by Democrats will not hold a criminal if ICE has a retainer on them, these criminals need to be rounded up by ICE through special law enforcement actions. But Pelosi and other Democrats (who were fine with Obama doing the exact same thing) are actively working to help criminals avoid law enforcement.

Incredible. If Democrats keep acting like this, the GOP won’t even need people to message for them. They can simply run on Democrats’ words and actions — previously listed in this space in terrifying detail — and let the justifiable fear of lawlessness take its natural course.

Oh, and use the picture of the defaced American flag and Mexican flag over a federal facility. Democrats will huff and puff that they don’t approve of that. Why should anyone believe them? Their actions on this issue mean they are totally aligned with the sentiment and the people who did it.

Fake News Begins with Fake Language

Human beings think with words.  We express our thoughts with words.

What truly differentiates humans from all other creatures is our ability to use language and preserve our thoughts in writing, thereby enabling us to pass down our knowledge from one generation to the next.  This is why the study of history is so important, but it is not only history that is passed from generation to generation but knowledge in general.

We often say that “There is no need to reinvent the wheel.”  Consider that if not for written language, each generation would, in effect, be forced to reinvent the wheel and all other forms of technology.

The study of history can help keep us from making the same tragic mistakes, but only if history is accurately written.

As George Orwell sagely observed, “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”

The words that we use have real impact.

In 1974 an important psychological experiment was conducted that illustrated how altering words can not only have a significant impact on how the test subjects perceived the severity of a car crash but even ultimately impact how they remember the accident creating false memories.

The impact of word choice is not, however, limited to car accidents but applies virtually everywhere.

The report of that experiment Reconstruction of Automobile Destruction: An Example of the Interaction Between Languageand Memory’ included this synopsis:

Two experiments are reported in which subjects viewed films of automobile accidents and then answered questions about events occurring in the films. The question, “About how fast were the cars going when they smashed into each other?” elicited higher estimates of speed than questions which used the verbs collided, bumped, contucted, or hit in place of smashed. On a retest one week later, those subjects who received the verb smashed were more likely to say “yes” to the question, “Did you see any broken glass?”, even though broken glass was not present in the film. These results are consistent with the view that the questions asked subsequent t o a n event can cause a reconstruction in one’s memory of that event.

Not long after that experiment the Carter administration ordered that INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) employees stop using the term “illegal alien” to describe illegal aliens but use the term “undocumented immigrants.”  There is no way to know if any one in the Carter administration had read the report I noted at the beginning of my commentary, but it certainly causes me to wonder if there is a connection.

In any event, years earlier George Orwell wrote an important novel, “1984,” that was required reading when I was a high school student, too many years ago.  It must be considered “required reading” for all Americans today.

That novel about a fictitious totalitarian government included the creation of the ultimate form of propaganda known as “Newspeak” and an all-pervasive government known as “Big Brother.”

The “Ministry of Truth” was the arm of the government that administered Newspeak.

Today function of the Ministry of Truth is served by the Mainstream Media.

Though the internet, license plate readers, and a variety of other forms of surveillance, the control exerted by Big Brother in 1984 has been far surpassed by our society today.

I wrote about Newspeak and the efforts of those in political power as well as their allies in the mainstream media to alter public perceptions in my extensive article, Language Wars: The Road to Tyranny Is Paved with Language Censorship.

In that article I noted that:

A detailed explanation of Newspeak is found in this paragraph from the Appendix to Orwell’s novel, under the title The Principles of Newspeak:

The purpose of Newspeak was not only to provide a medium of expression for the world-view and mental habits proper to the devotees of Ingsoc (English Socialist Party) but to make all other modes of thought impossible. It was intended that when Newspeak had been adopted once and for all and Oldspeak forgotten, a heretical thought — that is, a thought diverging from the principles of Ingsoc — should be literally unthinkable, at least so far as thought is dependent on words. Its vocabulary was so constructed as to give exact and often very subtle expression to every meaning that a Party member could properly wish to express, while excluding all other meanings and also the possibility of arriving at them by indirect methods. This was done partly by the invention of new words, but chiefly by eliminating undesirable words and by stripping such words as remained of unorthodox meanings, and so far as possible of all secondary meanings whatever. To give a single example. The word free still existed in Newspeak, but it could only be used in such statements as ‘This dog is free from lice’ or ‘This field is free from weeds’. It could not be used in its old sense of ‘politically free’ or ‘intellectually free’ since political and intellectual freedom no longer existed even as concepts, and were therefore of necessity nameless. Quite apart from the suppression of definitely heretical words, reduction of vocabulary was regarded as an end in itself, and no word that could be dispensed with was allowed to survive. Newspeak was designed not to extend but to diminish the range of thought, and this purpose was indirectly assisted by cutting the choice of words down to a minimum.

Today, deceptive language is frequently written off as simply being “politically correct” language designed to not insult anyone while, the truth is far more treacherous.  The deceptive language is actually the manifestation of Orwellian Newspeak.

The term “Alien” has been all but expunged from the immigration vernacular, even though it is a term that is an integral element of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

In point of fact, 8 USC 1101 is a section of the INA that provides definitions for terminology that has a direct bearing on our immigration laws and defines the term “Alien” this way:

The term “alien” means any person not a citizen or national of the United States.

There is no insult in that term, only clarity. The sort of clarity the immigration con artists are determined to eliminate at all costs.

Therefore the radical left branded the term Alien “Hate Speech!”

Incredibly and hypocritically,, however, the supposedly despicable term “alien” was used to create the acronym DREAM Act. (Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act) pushed vigorously by the same radical leftists.

The media now uses more obfuscating terms to describe illegal aliens.  In addition to referring to them as immigrants (thereby insulting and impugning lawful immigrants) lately they refer to them as “asylum seekers” and “migrants.”

The term “migrant” is not unique to aliens. Indeed Caesar Chavez who founded the United Farm Workers Union did so to protect the interests of American migrant farm workers and railed against illegal aliens who took the jobs of American migrant workers.  As for the notion that the aliens who run the U.S./Mexican border are “asylum seekers” while many will falsely claim “credible fear” only a very small percentage will actually qualify for asylum and many of these aliens don’t even show up for their hearings because they know that they won’t be approved.  They just make those bogus claims as a tactic to gain entry into the U.S. and make there way to cities across the United States where they easily hide in “plain sight,” knowing that ICE lacks the resources to look for them and Sanctuary Cities will help shield them from detection.

For many Americans, however, the term “asylum seeker” falsely engenders legitimacy and creates sympathy for illegal aliens.

“Sanctuary Cities” promise to protect “immigrants” from ICE.  Immigrants need no such protection.  Those jurisdiction protect illegal aliens including criminals, fugitives and potentially terrorists.

Americans are well-known for being compassionate and thus using such terminology is designed to generate empathy and obfuscate the truth.

Americans historically root for the “underdog.”  Today what many Americans don’t realize is that while they have been manipulated and conned into feeling sympathy for millions of illegal aliens, in reality, they and their fellow American citizens have become the true underdogs, suffering the greatest harm from rampant immigration anarchy at the hands of their own corrupt government.

“I love beheading the enemy”: Muslim migrant who supports ISIS is deported from US by ICE

“Extremist, terrorist, tough, brain-washed, radical, I love explosions, booby trapping, beheading the enemy, and am among the supporters of establishing the religion with the sword.”

Charming fellow. Why was he admitted into the US in the first place? Was any attempt made to determine his sentiments regarding jihad? Almost certainly not.

Tunisian national with terrorist ties removed from US,” ICE, June 21, 2019 (thanks to Creeping Sharia):

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – A Tunisian national with ties to ISIS was removed from the U.S. Wednesday by officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) after serving a federal prison sentence resulting from an investigation conducted by ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the FBI and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Houcine Ghoul departed the U.S. from John F. Kennedy Airport in New York Wednesday evening, escorted by ERO officers. He was turned over to Tunisian authorities Thursday, upon his arrival in his home country.

In August 2018, Ghoul was sentenced by Chief U.S. District Judge James C. Dever III to 24 months in prison, followed by deportation, for attempted unlawful procurement of naturalization and making false statements on his tax return. ICE lodged a detainer on Ghoul, and upon his release from Bureau of Prisons custody, he entered ICE custody pursuant to the detainer.

Ghoul, a citizen of Tunisia, entered the U.S. in 2001 on a tourist visa. After overstaying his visa, Ghoul married a U.S. citizen, whom he later divorced, and obtained status as a legal permanent resident.

The investigation into Ghoul’s conduct began in April 2014 when Ghoul posted a photo online that explicitly displayed support for the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), a designated foreign terrorist organization. This photo displayed an individual holding a sign with the Arabic phrase, “The victory of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria,” and then below in English, “ISIS,” and “N. Carolina, USA,” the state where Ghoul was then residing. The photo later appeared in an online propaganda video posted by others to display worldwide support for ISIS. Though he did not use his actual name or identity for the online accounts, Ghoul provided a self-description within the account, “Extremist, terrorist, tough, brain-washed, radical, I love explosions, booby trapping, beheading the enemy, and am among the supporters of establishing the religion with the sword.”

In December 2014, Ghoul applied to become a U.S. citizen. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services interviewed him in reference to his application in February 2017. During this interview, Ghoul made a number of false statements, including, but not limited to: he in no way associated with or had been a member of any terrorist organization, he had never advocated for the overthrow of a government, and he had not married someone to obtain an immigration benefit. He also falsely claimed that he had not made misrepresentations to obtain public benefits. All of these statements were false because Ghoul had sworn allegiance to ISIS and had been an active supporter of ISIS both online and in person, had explicitly advocated for the overthrow of the U.S. through violence, had entered into a sham marriage for the sole purpose of obtaining U.S. citizenship, and had assisted in providing lies to the State of North Carolina in order to obtain childcare benefits.

QUESTIONS THE CANDIDATES MUST ANSWER: And the one question that will expose those who actually hate you.

The first two Presidential primary debates are behind us but before Election Day there will be many, many more to come.

Typically the news media not only broadcast the debates but are quick to report on the statements and responses made by the candidate participants.

However, what receives little attention are the questions that were asked and the questions that were not asked by the journalist-moderators. This is a new version of “don’t ask – don’t tell!”

The importance of questions cannot be underestimated. My dad sagely told me that the only “dumb” question is the one you don’t ask.

The French philosopher Voltaire famously opined that you should judge a person’s intelligence by the questions he asks.

As an agent, my ability to ask the right question at the right time was a vital skill and one that I worked at for my entire career.

The questioning of an individual in a formal setting comes in two forms, the initial question and the follow-up question(s). I compare this to boxing. The initial question is not unlike the jab while the follow-up question is like the punch to the jaw and may actually score the knockout.

During the first two Democratic Primary debates many issues were raised that actually have relevance to the immigration crisis, yet this connection was never made.

Inasmuch as the “war on terror” continues and the “all clear” has not sounded and is not likely to sound for quite some time, I would want to start out by asking each and every candidate for any significant political office, but particularly for the Presidency, if he/she had read the 9/11 Commission Report and the companion report, 9/11 and  Terrorist Travel in their entirety.

The 9/11 Commission was convened specifically to learn from our mistakes to protect America and Americans from future terror attacks.

The President of the United States is also the Commander-in-Chief of our armed forces and is also of all federal law enforcement agencies.

Any serious candidate for the Presidency must consider those reports to be “required reading.”

The preface of the report 9/11 and Terrorist Travel begins with the following:

It is perhaps obvious to state that terrorists cannot plan and carry out attacks in the United States if they are unable to enter the country. Yet prior to September 11, while there were efforts to enhance border security, no agency of the U.S. government thought of border security as a tool in the counterterrorism arsenal. Indeed, even after 19 hijackers demonstrated the relative ease of obtaining a U.S. visa and gaining admission into the United States, border security still is not considered a cornerstone of national security policy. We believe, for reasons we discuss in the following pages, that it must be made one.

It went on to state:

Although there is evidence that some land and sea border entries (of terrorists) without inspection occurred, these conspirators mainly subverted the legal entry system by entering at airports.

In doing so, they relied on a wide variety of fraudulent documents, on aliases, and on government corruption. Because terrorist operations were not suicide missions in the early to mid-1990s, once in the United States terrorists and their supporters tried to get legal immigration status that would permit them to remain here, primarily by committing serial, or repeated, immigration fraud, by claiming political asylum, and by marrying Americans. Many of these tactics would remain largely unchanged and undetected throughout the 1990s and up to the 9/11 attack.

Thus, abuse of the immigration system and a lack of interior immigration enforcement were unwittingly working together to support terrorist activity. It would remain largely unknown, since no agency of the United States government analyzed terrorist travel patterns until after 9/11. This lack of attention meant that critical opportunities to disrupt terrorist travel and, therefore, deadly terrorist operations were missed.

Here is yet another excerpt:

Terrorists in the 1990s, as well as the September 11 hijackers, needed to find a way to stay in or embed themselves in the United States if their operational plans were to come to fruition. As already discussed, this could be accomplished legally by marrying an American citizen, achieving temporary worker status, or applying for asylum after entering. In many cases, the act of filing for an immigration benefit sufficed to permit the alien to remain in the country until the petition was adjudicated. Terrorists were free to conduct surveillance, coordinate operations, obtain and receive funding, go to school and learn English, make contacts in the United States, acquire necessary materials, and execute an attack.

This then lays the groundwork for these followup questions:

  1. Given the above-noted, how could any serious candidate call for permitting aliens to enter the United States without vetting and then permit them to apply for political asylum?
  2. How could you insist on a massive amnesty program to provide unknown millions of illegal aliens with lawful status even though there are no resources to interview all of these aliens, let alone conduct field investigations?
  3. We have seen terrorists easily commit immigration fraud, what would you do to address this vulnerability. Indeed, the candidates who demand the dismantling of ICE need to be pointedly asked how they could justify such a dangerous tactic?

On April 30, 2019 the Justice Department issued a press release, Jordanian National Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy to Bring Aliens into the United States, which noted that in 2017 the smuggler smuggled aliens from Yemen, a “Special Interest Country” into the United States without inspection from Monterrey, Mexico to Piedras Negras in Texas.

On April 12, 2017, the Washington Times reported, Sharafat Ali Khan smuggled terrorist-linked immigrants.

During the debate Bernie Sanders stated that there are individuals fleeing from Honduras because of gangs. He made it clear that he would permit all of these aliens to enter the United States and apply for asylum. He was never challenged as to how he would prevent the gang members from Honduras or any other country, for that matter, from entering the United States where they easily ply their violent, sociopathic “trades” often targeting the members of the ethnic immigrant communities.

Mr. Sanders should read the transcripts of several hearings on the issue of transnational gangs:

On June 20, 2017 the House Homeland Security Committee, Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence conducted a field hearing on Long Island in Central Islip, New York, on the topic, Combating Gang Violence On Long Island: Shutting Down The MS-13 Pipeline.

On June 21, 2017 the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on “The MS-13 Problem: Investigating Gang Membership, its Nexus to Illegal Immigration, and Federal Efforts to End the Threat.”

On November 21, 2013 the Washington Times reported, Mexican drug cartels exploit asylum system by claiming ‘credible fear.’

The report quoted Bob Goodlatte, the then-Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee:

It’s outrageous that members of Mexican drug cartels and others involved in illicit activity are so easily able to exploit our asylum laws and live in the U.S. virtually undetected,” said Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican.

Our asylum laws are in place to help individuals who are facing truly serious persecution in their country,” he said. “However, dangerous criminals are gaming the system by claiming they have a ‘credible fear’ of persecution when often they’ve been the perpetrators of violence themselves.

Concerns about the lack of integrity to this system were the focus of two House Judiciary Committee hearings conducted as a result of Chairman Goodlatte’s concerns:

Asylum Abuse: Is it Overwhelming our Borders?

Asylum Fraud: Abusing America’s Compassion?

Of course while one of the hearings focused on how asylum abuse was overwhelming our borders, in reality, asylum abuse is overwhelming the entire immigration system throughout the entire United States of America.

At the conclusion of my recent interview on Fox & Friends First to discuss the border crisis, I asked the rhetorical question that should be asked of all of the candidates:

“Would you board an airliner if you saw several of your fellow passengers sneak past the TSA at the airport?- Why then are we being forced to live among millions of aliens who ran our borders and evaded a similar vetting process conducted at ports of entry?”

Ilhan Omar’s 4th of July message is critical of US, after she celebrates Somali Independence Day

If it weren’t already clear where her loyalties lie, the contrast between these two messages should remove any doubts anyone may still have.

Ilhan Omar Sends Somber Fourth Of July Message Days After Celebrating Somali Independence Day,” by Molly Prince, Daily Caller, July 5, 2019:

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar urged Americans to celebrate the Fourth of July by reflecting on “how much further we have to go,” standing in contrast to her joyful celebration of Somali Independence Day four days prior.

“Today gives us all a chance to reflect on how far we have come as a country and how much further we have to go to achieve full equality for all people,” Omar tweeted July 4. “We are at a tipping point for progress right now.”

“Happy 4th of July,” she added.

Omar’s congressional office also tweeted a Fourth of July message, stating that Independence Day is a time to celebrate American values such as freedom of the press, equal protection of all minorities and America’s role in guaranteeing human rights worldwide.

While there was no mention of America’s independence from Britain, the tweet listed the Constitution, despite the holiday actually celebrating the Declaration of Independence.

Omar’s congressional office also included “freedom from foreign influence” as a reason to celebrate the Fourth of July. Omar faced massive backlash in February after she suggested Jews’ support of Israel is paid for. She later denied the age-old anti-Semitic canard contending she was simply referring to “the political influence in this country that says it is okay to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”

“We must continue to strive to make our union even more perfect,” Omar’s office added to the Independence Day tweet.

The message of reflection comes only days after Omar posted a video of herself joyfully dancing along during a Somali Independence Day celebration.

“Happy Independence Day Somalia,” Omar tweeted July 1 before adding “Somalia hanoolaato,” which translates into “Long live Somalia.”

The congresswoman’s celebratory tweet also included a passage from Somali’s previous national anthem that translates roughly into English as “Somalis, wake up, wake up and support each other. Support your country. Support them forever.”

Omar, a Somali immigrant, became one of America’s first Muslim congresswomen when sworn into office in 2018. Her time in office has been embroiled in allegations of anti-Semitism and anti-American sentiments….

The Democrats’ Positions on Immigration Are Starting to Worry a Lot of Democrats

The death of the so-called Gang of Eight bill in the House of Representatives in 2014 marks the point at which the Democratic establishment dropped any pretense of support for immigration enforcement. The last week in June 2019 will almost certainly mark the point at which the party’s leaders declared not only their unconcealed hostility to immigration enforcement, but their rejection of the very notion that the United States should even have immigration laws.

The week began with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the party’s highest ranking elected federal official, declaring “A violation of status is not a reason for deportation. That’s just not so.” 8 U.S. Code Section 1325 says otherwise, but why let a little thing like a federal statute stand in the way of a political agenda? Pelosi went on to tout a House supplemental appropriation to deal with the humanitarian fallout from the border crisis, “We have legislation to go forward to address those needs,” and also stated clearly her view that anyone who makes it into the country, however they got here, should be allowed to remain. “[I]n terms of interior enforcement, what is – what’s the point?”

But Pelosi’s musings were just the Democratic locomotive approaching the sharp curve at high speed. Just a few days later, the two dozen or so presidential contenders who hope to supplant her as the nation’s highest ranking elected Democrat held their first debate over two nights. That’s where their positions on immigration really went off the rails in the opinion of some high profile opinion columnists whose opinions tend to lean toward the Democrats’ world view.

Andrew Sullivan, writing in New York Magazine, and Jeff Greenfield in Politico, were both left wondering whether the Democrats had lost all touch, not just with reality, but with voters outside of the bubble of the party’s increasingly radical base. “I suspect that the Democrats’ new position — everyone in the world can become an American if they walk over the border and never commit a crime — is political suicide,” wrote Sullivan. Similarly, Greenfield noted, “These candidates aren’t explicitly advocating open borders, but taken together, the policies advocated amount to almost the same thing.” And not just advocating for open borders, observed Greenfield, but also all manner of “’free stuff’ to millions of people who broke the law to get here in the first place.”

Former Housing and Urban Development (HUD) secretary, Julian Castro, who apparently is familiar with Section 1325 openly called for its repeal. He also conceded that many of the people who are now violating Section 1325 are really economic migrants. “A lot of folks that are coming are not seeking asylum — a lot of them are undocumented immigrants,” who should be allowed to remain here anyway, Castro said.

While there was some disagreement among the presidential wannabes about whether we should care if people cross our borders without permission, there was none when it came to the question about what expensive benefit programs illegal aliens should be entitled to. All. When the debate moderator asked the candidates on stage if they agreed with South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttitieg’s suggestion that illegal aliens be made eligible for federal health insurance benefits, every hand went up. The cost of such a plan? Apparently it would be crass to even calculate the cost of allowing everyone who shows up here to exercise their “right” to health care at the American taxpayer’s expense.

Whether last week’s assertions by the Democratic leadership amount to “political suicide,” as Sullivan suggests, will be determined by the voters in 16 months. What is clear is that the week was a definitive turning point. As Greenfield conclude, “Right now, it seems clear that if either of the past two Democratic presidents had shown up Thursday and advocated their positions from five or 20 years ago—the ones that helped them win a general election—they would have been booed off their own party’s stage.”

VIDEO: The Vortex — Anti-American Bishops

A greedy, self-serving bunch if there ever was one.

TRANSCRIPT

It’s time once again for the Fourth of July celebrations in America to get rolling and we thought we’d take the opportunity to point out a little something, a two-headed hydra, the Democratic Party and the U.S. bishops’ conference.

First, let’s look at the Democrats and this guaranteed losing stance.

Yep, all 10 Dem candidates on stage last week promised that their plan is to take your tax dollars and pay health care costs for illegal immigrants, and some of those tax dollars coming from actual citizens who don’t have health insurance themselves.

Turning to the second head of the hydra, the U.S. bishops have more than a dozen times issued pronouncements against Trump’s enforcement of current immigration laws, some of the exact same laws that Obama used to enforce.

Curiously, when Democrat Obama would make speeches or give interviews about illegal immigrants, the U.S. bishops just let it slide.

And why would the bishops not thunder against Obama, you might ask. That’s a good question. A question for the record that the Catholic establishment media never asks, because they can’t tick off their meal ticket.

There are really two reasons the bishops are down with open borders and staging photo ops at the border, and running off a flood of press releases damning Trump.

One reason is their miserable track record of running the Church has resulted in a depressing demographic reality.

For decades, Catholics were about 25% of the total U.S. population — for decades.

But as the Church of Nice, modernist homoheretics slowly tipped the scales and got control of the levers of power, the population of Catholics relative to the total population began to shrink.

Today, it’s down to about 21% of the population. And here’s the truth under those numbers, white European-descent Catholics, in relation to the total population, comprise only about 13 percent.

That is a falling off the cliff — without Hispanic Catholics, many of whom are here illegally, Catholics, who used to be about one out of every four Americans, are now only about one out of every eight or nine.

Most illegal immigrants in the United States come across that southern border and are majority Catholic, so the bishops have latched onto that reality and are using it to shore up their flagging numbers in the pews.

But more than that, money is the overwhelming factor.

Look at these financial numbers from 2016 for Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and Catholic Charities.

Catholic Relief Services received a staggering $426,943,000 in U.S. federal tax dollars. Those federal monies accounted for 65% of the agency’s total 2016 budget.

And Catholic Charities received a not too shabby $202,000,000.

The bishops are getting literally hundreds of millions of dollars from Uncle Sam, and much of this money is earmarked specifically for coping with illegal immigration and refugee resettlement efforts.

The government is not really equipped to administer programs of this size, so they contract the work out — in this case, a half-billion dollars worth of contracts to the bishops.

Interesting to note, the U.S. bishops get as much money from Washington as Planned Parenthood gets.

And here’s another deception by silence on the part of the bishops, they never tell people in the pews when they take up the annual collection for CRS and Catholic Charities that, presuming you are legal and a taxpayer, that you have already contributed to these collections through your taxes.

When Obama first came to office, the USCCB was directly paid a whopping $91 million dollars for Syrian refugee resettlement programs.

As a result, one out of every three dioceses in the country suddenly opened up a refugee resettlement office to cash in.

In fact, another $30-plus million also poured directly into the bishops coffers from Obama’s White House for other programs.

The child killer in chief must have been very grateful to the mitered class for having delivered him the majority Catholic vote in ’08.

But for the supreme show of hypocrisy from the bishops who are always so chest-thumping about welcoming the stranger and so forth — look at the places most of them live.

You couldn’t get past the gates or over the walls with a small army, and of course, Church HQ itself is completely surrounded with a gigantic wall built specifically to keep out potential Muslim invaders, along with others.

And that’s because walls work, which is why so many of the hierarchy have themselves safely ensconced behind them, including the Pope.

And oh yeah, if you somehow manage to get around or over those walls, you’ll get shot and killed — so much for the death penalty being “inadmissable,” to quote Bishop Robert Barron.

The U.S. bishops are simply opposed, flat-out, to border security in complete lockstep with their Democratic sugar-daddies.

They make the irrational argument that the “first duty” of government is to welcome the foreigner and the stranger, specifically as the Immigration Office at USCCB HQ says “to welcome the foreigner out of charity and respect for the human person. Persons have the right to immigrate and thus government must accommodate this right to the greatest extent possible, especially financially blessed nation.”

This is a total perversion of Catholic teaching; it’s Democratic Party talking points made to sound like Church teaching.

The bishops say the “second duty (of government)is to secure one’s border and enforce the law for the sake of the common good.”

So let’s think about this. The first duty of government is to let everybody in who wants to migrate, and the second duty is to enforce the borders.

Well, if you are letting everybody in, then what need does America have for borders and if anyone who want to migrate to the United States gets to come in, how long before the government no longer exists?

A nation is defined by its borders in the most fundamental reality.

But all of this would actually be an argument worth having if the bishops were not getting cumulatively billions of dollars from the government, much of which has been severely cut back by President Trump, and they themselves were actually not living behind walls and or had immigrants sleeping in their palaces.

Those swanky digs up in the woods of New York that Cardinal Dolan commandeered for himself — remember, that $4 million pad — it sure looks like you cram a few dozen immigrant families in there, Your Eminence.

Hypocrisy, money, privilege, sucking at the teats of the Democrats — what a dastardly lot.

Exactly how does a hierarchy maintain any independence when its very infrastructure is supported by federal tax dollars?

Want to know why pro-abort Catholic Democrats are never denounced? Just look at the issue of illegal immigration, the wall and the money handed to them and you have your answer.

When the basket gets passed next time in your parish to contribute to any of this, drop in a note saying, “No thanks, I already paid you with my taxes.”

VIDEO: What Does It Mean to be a Citizen of the United States?

Have you ever watched a naturalization ceremony? This is where people from different countries around the world apply for citizenship, learn English and pass a test, renounce their homeland, and swear loyalty to their new country, the United States of America. You occasionally see it on television, but Youtube! maintains a library of such services.

All U.S. citizens are descended from someone who took the same oath years earlier. With me, it was both sets of grandparents following World War I.

After a ceremony, someone typically speaks on behalf of the group. They talk about why becoming an American citizen is so important to them, such as the ability to vote; they talk about true freedom, and living in the land of opportunity, and their eyes swell with tears, as does their relatives and friends. It is all rather moving.

They come to America because we have so much to offer, and it’s not just public education, health care or other entitlements they seek, these are mere peripherals. They primarily come for freedom and the opportunity to better themselves. They do not want to feel oppression from a word said out of turn, and they desperately want to innovate, invent and earn knowing their work is their own and not the state’s. They come for the protection of the U.S. Constitution, a document which has stood the test of time.

The legal immigrants understand the importance of the country, and are willing to fight for it. Quite often, they know more about the country than those born here. It is not unusual for such natives to be ignorant of our history and government, thereby taking it for granted, and opening the door for others to undermine it. They do not comprehend the blood, sweat, tears of those who worked and fought for such a country to exist.

The United States is not a homogeneous society consisting of the same race, the same religion, and the same tongue. It is a melting pot, which ultimately is our strength, not a weakness, where the knowledge and talents of all countries on earth meet and become one, American. Not surprising, our national character changes over time, e.g.; one moment we prefer isolationism, the next we’re a world power; we sympathize with the oppressed and have come to the aid of others on multiple occasions, thereby becoming a beacon of hope.

Americans are competitive, they appreciate a level playing field, but will rise to the challenge when one is not provided. They work hard and they play hard. They are fascinated by technology, the world around them, and the desire to be the best.

Americans are proud of our past. Sure we’ve made mistakes along the way. We even fought a horrific war among ourselves to settle a principle. However, when you realize this country started with nothing and evolved into a dominant world power, not because of autocratic rule, but because of a Constitutional Republic, our achievements are truly remarkable. Aside from the past, Americans aspire for the future.

There are a three things you should remember about the American character; first, they like to squabble among themselves much like a family, and as such, do not attempt to interfere; second, our weakness is we tend to react as opposed to plan (as evidenced by such things as Pearl Harbor, 911, Hurricane Katrina, etc.); even with this said, third, do not provoke them or underestimate their determination. They will rise to the occasion as they have proven numerous times. The story of America is incredible, and so are the American people.

Happy Independence Day.

Keep the Faith!

FL Senator Joe Gruters Visits U.S. – Mexico Border says ‘Make no mistake: the crisis is real.’

In an email to constituents Florida Senator Joe Gruters stated:

“I just returned from the US-Mexico border in El Paso, Texas where I witnessed firsthand the illegal immigration crisis threatening our nation. Make no mistake: the crisis is real.”

“In fact, I believe every member of Congress should be required to visit the border before spouting off partisan rhetoric on the subject.”

Senator Gruters posted the below video of his trip to the border on the Florida Politics YouTube channel:

Senator Gruters announced that he will be conducting a statewide listening tour later this month with Jacksonville Rep. Cord Byrd to hear directly from Floridians on the issue of immigration.

“I don’t believe we should ever compromise when it comes to enacting common sense policies that promote public safety and uphold the laws of the land,” said Gruters. “I want to hear straight from Floridians and listen to their ideas on what additional reforms they’d like to see the legislature address next session.”

Federal Judge Blocks Billions of Dollars for Border Wall Funding

Obama’s DHS Secretary: FYI, Cages or Whatever You Want to Call Them, Weren’t Invented by Trump

Dems Determined to Leave America Borderless. And hence, defenseless.

The quintessential example of “Chutzpah” is the young man who kills both of his parents and then pleads for mercy arguing that he is an orphan.

The Democrats have succeeded in providing an even more egregious example of demonstrating chutzpah by betraying their oaths of office and betraying their constituents and, indeed, all Americans.

The official report, 9/11 and  Terrorist Travel begins with the following paragraph:

It is perhaps obvious to state that terrorists cannot plan and carry out attacks in the United States if they are unable to enter the country. Yet prior to September 11, while there were efforts to enhance border security, no agency of the U.S. government thought of border security as a tool in the counterterrorism arsenal. Indeed, even after 19 hijackers demonstrated the relative ease of obtaining a U.S. visa and gaining admission into the United States, border security still is not considered a cornerstone of national security policy. We believe, for reasons we discuss in the following pages, that it must be made one.

The Democrats continue to refuse to provide the funding for DHS to address the border crisis that exists along the dangerous and highly porous U.S./Mexican border while complaining about the conditions in which illegal aliens, particularly alien children, are being housed in detention facilities that were never designed to handle the number of aliens currently being housed within their over-crowded confines.

On June 25, 2019 Fox News reported, “Dem-led House passes $4.5B bill to aid migrants at border, setting up showdown with GOP-led Senate.”

While the Democrats balk at the funding of a border wall that would deter the massive tsunami of unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug smuggling, their “leaders” are happy to spend huge sums of tax-payer provided cash on caring for illegal aliens who should not be here in the first place!

Of course I would be remiss if I fail to point out that the money for the border wall and other immigration law enforcement efforts was not provided by the Republicans when they controlled the House of Representatives, either.

Here is how that report began:

The House approved a $4.5 billion supplemental spending bill on Tuesday night to address humanitarian issues at the U.S.-Mexico border and to provide additional funding for food, water, medical services and stronger protections for unaccompanied children, among other things — setting up a showdown between the Democrat-led House and the Republican-led Senate.

The House bill, which passed 230-195, included specifics that would prevent the Trump administration from allowing any funding to go toward beefing up Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) personnel at the border, likely to become a point of contention with Republicans.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has outrageously and disgustingly compared immigration detention facilities with “Concentration Camps.”  In one fell swoop she managed to trivialize the Holocaust, stopping just short of denying that it even happened and comparing valiant immigration law enforcement officers with the Gestapo of Third Reich notoriety.

She co-opted the expression “Never again” that is the rallying cry to make certain that a Holocaust is never again permitted to occur, and has now voted against the spending bill that would fund any ICE- related functions, calling for the total dismantling of ICE, a sentiment echoed by many of her Democrat “fellow travelers.”

That she could make such outrageous remarks difficult enough to accept, but that Pelosi and Nadler, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and a Jew, have refused to call her out but actually ran to her defense is beyond any comprehension!

As an American, as a Jew and as a retired INS Agent I am triply infuriated by Ocasio-Cortez’s statements.

To provide a bit of clarity:

The Third Reich used its soldiers to round up citizens of the countries where the concentration camps existed.  They were deemed “undesirable.”  These troops would pull their victims, men, women and children out of their homes at gun point and transport them to the Nazi concentration camps that are also appropriately referred to as “Death Camps.”

The victims of the Holocaust who were held in the concentration camps were turned into slaves to build the Nazi war machine and, when through overwork and starvation became ill and unable to work, were slaughtered.

Other victims of the Holocaust were used as the subject of barbaric and horrific medical experimentation.

Many concentration camps had crematoria that operated constantly to incinerate the remains of the inmates, most often Jews.

Although the mainstream media has been quick to refer to the illegal aliens being held in immigration detention centers as “migrants” and “immigrants” and “asylum seekers,” they blithely ignore that these individuals are aliens who are illegally present in the Untied States.

Some “Migrant Workers” who toil on American farms are actually United States citizens.  The term migrant refers to workers who travel from job to job irrespective of immigration status.

Immigration detention centers exist solely to prevent illegal aliens from being able to gain access to our nation.  These aliens are held to protect national security, public safety, public health and the well being of America and Americans.

Most of the aliens who apply for asylum disappear within the interior of the United States when their applications are denied- not because the United States lacks compassion, but because their applications for asylum lack merit.

Many of these hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are not criminals but should be thought of as economic refugees who will flood America with cheap exploitable labor, thereby displacing American and lawful immigrant workers.  Many will seek health care and various costly benefits and education for their children further burdening our public school systems that already lack the resources to provide quality education for hapless American and lawful immigration children.

Some may suffer from dangerous communicable diseases threatening public health.  And finally some may well be aliens with criminal histories and/or affiliation with violent gangs and narcotics trafficking organizations.  Finally, some may be involved with terrorism and may be “sleeper agents” seeking the opportunity to embed themselves in the United States until called upon to carry out a deadly attack or are tasked with a preparatory assignment to scope our locations, seek to recruit others or commit crimes to fund terrorism.  This is not conjecture by are issues that were raised during a series of congressional hearings conducted even before the terror attacks of 9/11.

Yet funding has never been provided to effectively enforce our nation’s immigration laws.

Having raised the nexus between failures of the immigration system and terrorism at the beginning of my commentary, it is important to note that on June 25, 2019 Fox News reported, “Sept. 11 first responders call sit-down with McConnell ‘one of the best meetings we’ve had.’”

Here is how the report ended:

The House Judiciary Committee passed a reauthorization bill for the 9/11 Victims’ Compensation Fund on Wednesday, where it will now move to the full House and is expected to pass with bipartisan support.

Advocates have rallied to keep the bill alive until 2090, the expected lifespan of first responders who developed illnesses from inhaling toxic fumes during recovery efforts and while clearing rubble at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pa. following the terrorist attacks in 2001.

More than 2,000 firefighters, police officers, federal agents and other first responders have died from 9/11-related diseases and that number is expected to climb over time, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s World Trade Center Health Program.

Critics have opposed making the bill open-ended, while advocates have cited the terminal illnesses that many first responders continue to face. More than 40,000 people have applied to the fund and over $5 billion in benefits have been awarded out of the $7.4 billion fund with about 21,000 claims still pending.

The slogan “Never forget” that implores and exhorts us and our leaders to make certain that America is kept safe from future terror attacks, is being completely ignored by politicians who refuse to fund meaningful immigration law enforcement.

These politicians are willfully undermining national security and public safety.

VIDEO: Confessions of an Ex-Migrant Volunteer in Germany

Posted by  Eeyore

This is a must watch. Really. No kidding. Everyone has to see this confession. Yes, it is 31 minutes. But wow is it ever worth the time.

This is a German woman, originally also a refugee to Germany, who was assisting the Muslim migrants at her own time effort and expense. Then she realized what a pointless scam it was against the German people, and broke the “oath” and went public with her story.

Special thanks on this one to MissPiggy. It is a huge job to do a 31 minute video.

Trump 2020 Landslide

And with the wave of the hand – Trump ‘s election is secured.

Did you watch the Democrat debates? I tried to get through it all but only survived the first 45 minutes or so of each debate, the “A” list debate and the “B” list debate. These debates may have driven the last nail in the coffin for any chance for a Democrat to win the election against Trump. I did call a Trump historical landslide at least a year ago for the 2020 election in one of these weekly posts, but as the President said on Twitter the other day in response to the whether or not the candidates would provide illegal aliens with unlimited healthcare, “All Democrats just raised their hands for giving millions of illegal aliens unlimited healthcare. How about taking care of American Citizens first? That’s the end of that race!” – Donald Trump on Twitter. Yup-lights out-game over!

Bottom Line Take Aways

No American flags. No mention of America. Open borders. Killing babies even after they are born. Medicare for all, no private insurance. Raise taxes to the rafters. Socialism. Oh yeah, transgender women, (born as biological males), are to receive free abortions-boggles the mind. The deep state, the media, the left wing lunatics and the Democrats are imploding and panicking. Their party is over. Things will ramp up last quarter of this year and into 2020 as the deep-state de-class gains momentum, mark my words.

So, in a nutshell, there you have it. The Democrat party of JFK is dead and gone. And so now with these debates behind us and another 16 months of more insanity, our Democrat neighbors, many of them, will be voting for Trump. And according to recent surveys, 18% of the black community supported Trump in 2016 with 36%-39% supporting President Trump today. I agree with the President. It’s lights out, game over. Trump was the winner of these debates.

Action

All that being said, get out and vote. Get other Republicans registered and get them to vote. Let’s get busy on the swing states, the battleground states. The Democrats, independents, blacks and Hispanics are already coming aboard. In my opinion, voter fraud and election theft aside, Trump wins the electoral college and popular vote in a historic landslide. Focus. Get busy. This election will determine whether America has the chance to be resurrected or end up in the dustbin of history. Fight for what’s right as though your life depends on it. Why? because it does. Know your enemies well.

Ukrainian Refugee Charged in Deaths of Marine Bikers in New Hampshire

You’ve probably seen the news.  I know you saw the news about the crash that killed seven members of a NH motorcycle club the day they were killed, but did you ever see any widespread coverage of the arrest of the driver who is charged with their deaths?

I didn’t!  But, we learned from John Binder at Breitbart that “Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, a 23-year-old refugee from Ukraine” was charged with causing the terrible accident.

Now, we hear that ICE has placed a detainer on him.  But, it seems moot at this point.

Surely he isn’t going to be deported before he spends many years behind bars.

And, too bad they didn’t deport him before he killed these good people since he had had several previous run-ins with the law!

Here is Binder,

A Ukrainian national who came to the United States as a refugee — and who has a drunk driving conviction — has been charged with the deaths of five U.S. Marine Corps Veterans and two of their loved ones after allegedly causing a crash in Randolph, New Hampshire, last week.

Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, a 23-year-old refugee from Ukraine, was charged this week with seven counts of negligent homicide for allegedly killing five U.S. Marine Corps Veterans and two of their loved ones on Friday, June 21, when his trailer hitched to his pickup truck hit the motorcyclists.

The victims were riding motorcycles together as members of the Jarheads Motorcycle Club, a group of U.S. Marine Corps Veterans, their spouses, and loved ones.

A law enforcement official confirmed to Breitbart News that Zhukovskyy originally entered the U.S. on September 18, 2006, as a refugee from Ukraine.

Recently, his father told the Boston Herald, the Ukranian national [new American!—-ed] was able to secure a green card and adjust his refugee status in 2008 to become a permanent legal resident.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency have a detainer on Zhukovskyy requesting that he be turned over to federal immigration officials should he be released from prison at any time.

Criminal records obtained by the Boston Herald indicate that Zhukovskyy had multiple run-ins with the law dating back seven years.

More here.

Why do we need to be bringing so many Ukrainians I want to know!

I don’t know the answer, but I can tell you we are spending millions to bring thousands of Ukrainians directly from the Ukraine!

In fact, after the DR Congolese and the Burmese, Ukrainians are the third largest group of refugees entering the US during the Trump Administration.  Granted they are a mix of religions (no Muslims) and Ukraine has its problems, but why are they our problems?

Checking the data at the Refugee Processing Center for the years, beginning with the one this alleged murderer entered our country as a child (2006), we have admitted 21,071 ‘refugees’ from the Ukraine.

A couple thousand came when the Zhukovskyy family arrived in Massachusetts, then the numbers tailed off for a few years, but since Trump came into office the numbers are climbing steadily.

28% of that total of 21,071 (since FY06) have come during the Trump Administration.

In just the last nine months we admitted a little over 2,600 with 2,097 processed directly in from the Ukraine.

legitimate refugee is one who has left the country of his or her persecution and fears being returned to it.

It is an uncommon practice for someone to be living where they are supposedly persecuted and then directly being declared a refugee and admitted to the US (they probably even have homes and businesses to sell!).

The number one ‘welcoming’ state for Ukrainians is Washington.  Massachusetts is number seven.

If Trump is reelected, I want to see the whole Refugee Admissions Program scrapped! Only a handful of the most dire cases should ever be admitted and I can tell you these Ukrainians aren’t it!

Unfortunately, Trump left the nine federal refugee contractors in place and recently they began their annual agitation for the number they want to see admitted to the country next year — that number is 75,000 for FY2020 which begins on October 1 of this year.
