On Patriots

We need to get out the vote. 

If you don’t vote, Pelosi and Schumer will be running Congress.

Do you want those socialists running Congress?

 

On Asylum

From last July,

…Once the drug cartels succeed in getting the illegal aliens onto our soil, it’s almost impossible for us to stem the tide. This is not due to logistical limitations but to extra-constitutional lawsuits that create death by a thousand cuts through every aspect of the asylum process. To that end, the Trump administration issued a new guidance through USCIS to finally stop the invasion at our border and turn back most of the bogus asylum seekers

…In comes the USCIS with new guidance to automatically dismiss any “credible fear” assertion at the border that is premised simply on fleeing violence unless there is evidence of government-condoned persecution. Asylum adjudicators will also be required to take into account, as a mitigating factor in true asylum seeking, the fact that these people are crossing illegally at the behest of the cartels rather than requesting entry at the points of entry.

Is the Trump administration finally blocking the border invasion?

On a van down by the river

I can’t imagine anyone trying to make a pipe bomb, sending it in the mail with a digital clock timer on it. In an envelope even.

What’s even crazier, the pipe was PVC. Not galvanized Schedule 40 or black gas pipe. Plastic.

Any serious bomber would not have used a timer instead of a trigger switch, and they certainly would not have used plastic pipe.

He seemed to have lived in his Dodge van. and he covered up the windows with commercially printed decals. Not bumper stickers, this guy somehow created a graphic and had them printed up and stuck them over the windows for privacy concerns, I’m guessing.

Might as well live in a van down by the river.

The link above works. Apparently embedding does not.

On memes

Here’s some of my more recent graphics, and another or two.

Democrats seem to be in favor of mobs, be they Antifa, Caravans, or just paid idiots getting into certain Republican’s faces while they are trying to enjoy a bite to eat. 

Democrats have been calling to disband ICE. I don’t think so, and I appreciate their service.

Sent by a life-long buddy, above.

Dems seem to love Antifacist Action, aka ANTIFA. They like communists too, and that is exactly where the roots of ANTIFA comes from. They were the Stalinist communists in Germany both before and after WWII. 

America’s first civil rights organization

Thanks for looking!

 

 

On FaceBook Jail

RichTakes! On FaceBook Jail

I got thrown in FB jail today, for reasons unknown.  I’ve been a member since 2006. They claim I violated “Community Standards”, but of course didn’t specify the standard that I violated. I guess the community standard was not being progressive Marxist enough. 

My thought crime? And don’t kid yourself, that is exactly what this is. I posted a pic that somebody made stating that President Trump has called up the 82nd Airborne, America’s Division in WWII to deal with the “Caravan” of invaders coming up from central America through Mexico. I have no doubt that Trump has put all of our Armed Services on alert, including the 82nd.

The pic also included the 18 Section of the Immigration and Nationalization Act (INA) that Ted Kennedy pushed through in 1964 when Jack was President, and claimed that nothing would change. Of course he lied. There is plenty of video tape to that effect.

My first sentence was that “I can’t verify any of this…” I have no doubt that some one reported me for opposing the Marxist line.

Here’s the screen-shots:

 

 

 

 

We are being invaded every day, and have been since and before Reagan signed the first Amnesty Bill in 1986, and the fence (at that time) wasn’t built. He said his greatest regret was signing that bill and being screwed over by the Democrats later, by killing our border security that he thought was agreed to. It was meant to be a one time deal. 

It is far past time to regulate Facebook, and I am a free enterprise type of guy. I am also a free speech advocate, and they are over-stepping here with their community standards (which no one can seem to define). They just make it up as it suits them.

Go Figure!

 

Update:

It has now been over two days, maybe three since FaceBook got all butt-hurt over my post. I’ve looked at the community standards which might apply, and nothing applies. I found a couple which might, but even then, I’m well within their posted standards.

18. False News

…We want to help people stay informed without stifling productive public discourse. There is also a fine line between false news and satire or opinion. For these reasons, we don’t remove false news from Facebook but instead, significantly reduce its distribution by showing it lower in the News Feed.

The first sentence of my post was “I can’t verify any of this.” What follows was strictly opinion.

I have been able to log in to FB today. Facebook removed my post, even though initially they said that privacy would be set to “only me”. I must have been a real bad boy. Or someone must have reported my post and FB simply blocked me and took the post down.

The only other category of community standards which FB waves around might be 

12. Hate Speech

I wasn’t going to quote any of this, since it is ridiculous on it’s face. But here goes anyway, FB’s Tier 3:

Tier 3 attacks,

which are calls to exclude or segregate a person or group of people based on the above-listed characteristics. We do allow criticism of immigration policies and arguments for restricting those policies.

 

If my post was not criticism of immigration policies, and express outrage over a liberal push to launch yet another invasion of our country, I must not know what is.

Facebook wants to help though. To re-educate me, no doubt. Once I was able to log on again, a life-long friend (who is not a political policy wonk like me) sent me a PM with a cartoon. I attempted to reply with a simple LOL! FB wouldn’t even allow that, even though I’m supposedly out of FB Jail.

Here is what I saw when I attempted to reply: 

 

 

 

Okay, I’ll bite. Let us know? Sure, why not?

 

Here is what I wrote: 

Sadly, or not, I guess FB is all hat and no cattle: I attempted to send this to FB at least three times, and I got the same message each time. So now you know why I have my own domain here at Richtakes!

Update to the Update:

I guess a one day jail sentence somehow became three days. 

On Coons and Flakes

What really happened yesterday with Jeff Flake and Chris Coons.

Most of us saw or heard the Blasey-Ford and Kavanaugh hearing about an alleged wrestling match while both were adolescents at age 15 or 17, 36 years ago. The problem is that none of the others who Ford named as present can recall being there, while Kavanaugh completely denied it, and brought his 1982 calendar to help prove it. Ford’s “life-long” friend even stated that she doesn’t even know Kavanaugh.

The net result is that there is absolutely no proof or corroborating witnesses who can back up her account.  Continue reading On Coons and Flakes
