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.

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.

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.

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!

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

Russia Collusion: Hillary Clinton, DNC, & FBI are the Real Stars

The fix was in for Hillary. Obama’s plumbers creating leaks. Ventriloquist’s dummies. And the oldest con in the book. This would make a great novella. Or a Marvel Comic™. You just can’t make this stuff up. Obama weaponized our government against political opponents in ways that I’m sure brought a smile to Hugo Chavez and Vlad Putin. Castro would be smiling but he was dead or dying.

Related, kind of: 

NRA-basher Emma Gonzalez (Whose Father Fled Castro’s Gun-outlawing Cuba) Celebrated as Hero by Cuba’s Media – Humberto Fontova

In the first months of the Obama Administration they launched the “Fast and Furious” gun-running scheme, with BATF and FBI approval. Once this came to light, and two US Border Patrol agents were killed by cartel types with “walked” guns, and close to 300 Mexicans killed by the cartels in Mexico, Holder refused to cooperate with congress’s oversight function and was held in contempt of Congress. A first for an Attorney General. Holder also has a long sordid past dating back to the Clinton Administration, especially prominent with Clinton’s unjust 12th hour pardons.

Hillary was fully aware of Operation Fast and Furious too. She gave a speech in Mexico City talking about all of the weapons going to Mexico from the US two days before someone at BATF held a press conference bragging about Fast and Furious. She knew that our government was enabling gun-running in an attempt to build support to degrade or eliminate our Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights. No doubt.

Then we have the IRS and their slow-walking TEA-Party organizations applications from receiving 501(c)4 approvals, a few applications were 501(c)3. If an application was red-flagged, that is, it might be a conservative organization, so multiple ridiculous questionnaires were sent out, again and again. If it seemed to be a liberal organization, it was simply rubber-stamped “approved”. I wonder how that works? Anything to keep the TEA party from affecting the 2010 mid-terms, and some of these folks were harassed to boot. Sending a message to any donor-types, do not mess with us.

The difference from a 501(c)3, and a 501(c)4 is that contributions to a (c)3 is fully tax-deductible, while contributions to a (c)4 are not. Most of these applicants were asking for 501(c)4 designation. A little off-topic, but Media-Matters is a 501(c)3 non-profit, as is Planned Parenthood. In PP’s case, we are also paying them 500 million or more per year for their works in the budget, so they are getting over twice.

Chaffetz Asks DOJ Inspector General to Probe Comey Firing

Elijah Cummings seems to have been in complete agreement. This is the expanded probe that led to McCabe’s termination.

James Comey could be in ‘serious trouble’ for an admission he made to Congress last year. See the proof for yourself.

Two Surprising Facts About James Comey’s Memos Contradict His Senate Testimony

Office of Professional Responsibility | Department of Justice

“The OIG is required to notify OPR of the existence and results of any OIG investigation that reflects upon the professional ethics, competence or integrity of a Department attorney. In such cases, OPR will take appropriate action.”

Sessions fires McCabe from FBI

Here is the statement issued by Sessions:

“After an extensive and fair investigation and according to Department of Justice procedure, the Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) provided its report on allegations of misconduct by Andrew McCabe to the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR).

The FBI’s OPR then reviewed the report and underlying documents and issued a disciplinary proposal recommending the dismissal of Mr. McCabe.  Both the OIG and FBI OPR reports concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor − including under oath − on multiple occasions.

The FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and accountability.  As the OPR proposal stated, ‘all FBI employees know that lacking candor under oath results in dismissal and that our integrity is our brand.’ 

Pursuant to Department Order 1202, and based on the report of the Inspector General, the findings of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility, and the recommendation of the Department’s senior career official, I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately.”

By the way, the Office of Professional Responsibility is the same entity that recommended that Sessions recuse himself from any investigation related to the Russians and Trump, since Sessions campaigned enthusiastically for Trump, due to an appearance of a conflict of interest. Sessions complied and recused himself.

Also, the phrase “lack of candor” is agency-speak for lying. I understand that close to 20 agents have been terminated in the past 12 months for the same infraction, while not under oath.
