…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.
Since Hillary lost the election and Trump won, Democrats everywhere have been determined to undermine his Presidency at every turn. So far, they’ve been very successful by pressuring Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from anything related to Russia, and doing the same to Nunez in the House. Neither was justified, I don’t recall Holder or Lynch recusing themselves over issues where there were obvious conflicts of interest. Holder was held in contempt of the House over Fast and Furious testimony, and Lynch met with Slick Willy Clinton in a plane which no one was supposed to know about on a Saturday last summer, and on the following Monday, FBI Director Comey held a presser in which he laid out a case for prosecution of Hillary over her illegal email server, and then said that no prosecutor would proceed.
The very day after the loss, Hillary and company blamed it on the Russians, obviously, she could not have been to blame.
That claim was a complete hoax from Day One.
Trump’s firing of James Comey was completely justified, even if he totally screwed up the messaging. FBI Directors do not hold Press Conferences about recommending a prosecution or not to the DOJ, and in all fairness, AG Loretta Lynch put Comey in that position by publicly stating that she would defer to his recommendation, (after meeting with Willy on the tarmac) and we all knew that the fix was in. Comey’s ridiculous whiney testimony to the committee the week before his dismissal was reason enough. “What should I do? Reveal, or conceal” Really Comey? It’s not fair is it? I bet you “know your rights” too, don’t cha? I hear crap like that from my kids, I certainly don’t need to hear it from the FBI Director. You’re Fired!
The Russian collusion story line doesn’t seem to be getting much traction, so now the latest Democrat talking point says “Obstruction of Justice” Really? There was an FBI counter-intelligence investigation into the Russian collusion, coordination, or whatever going on at the FBI when Comey was dismissed, and that investigation was not impeded at all. A counter-intelligence investigation is not the same as a criminal investigation. Comey was not “leading” that investigation anymore than he was leading any of the other thousand or more current ongoing FBI investigations at any given time. The counter-intelligence investigation would ask if the Russians “hacked” the election, what did they do, how did they do it, what effects did it have, and how can we take measures to impede those efforts in the future. The truth is, the Russians did not “hack” the election by any reasonable standard.
We now have a new Deputy Attorney General, and he took about three days in office to appoint a “Special Counsel” to investigate all of this nonsense, The problem is, a Special Counsel has all of the same powers as an Independent Prosecutor, even if there is no evidence of any underlying crime. So far there is not any evidence of coordination or collusion, let alone a crime having been committed.
This will take years to complete, and months to even start up at a cost of millions of dollars just for the openers. All because Hillary wanted to blame the Russians for her loss in November.
A supporter of the American Communist Party at the height of the Cold War, Brennan brought into the CIA a raft of subversives and gave them plum positions from which to gather and leak political espionage on Trump.
After 108 years the Chicago Cubs, the winningest team in baseball, finally won another World Series.
Next, a mostly life-long Democrat, when he wasn’t Reform Party, or allegedly Republican, Donald Trump not only won the Republican nomination for President, he also soundly whipped Hillary Clinton this past Tuesday to become President-Elect. Surely Hell must have frozen over!
Stranger things have happened, but not in my lifetime.
If you have looked at this blog, you know that I have not been a Trump supporter, or a Clinton supporter, not by a long-shot, or even close to the broad side of a barn.
Still, I wish him well, and pray that he is successful in steering the rudder of our USS United States Ship of State. Congratulations, Donald Trump, you pulled off the impossible.
“ … the issues are irrelevant, because the product Trump was selling is himself. And Trump is a master persuader…”
Here is a guy who has taken two sides to nearly every major issue, and several I couldn’t disagree with more. But I’m willing to give him a chance. Occupying the Oval Office tends to sober a person up real quick, and Trump doesn’t drink or smoke. He may have other vices, but hey, he’s 70 years old already!
I wasn’t a never Trumper, but I was very close. I supported Ted Cruz, he has a resume a mile long, and he took a stand against Obamacare, even if it was a mostly symbolic exercise in the Senate. Cruz did not shut down the government, which only affected 15% or so of non-essential services anyway, Obama shut the government down by refusing to sign legislation that the House sent him for spending. Boehner and McConnell caved, when they could have made a difference if only they stood their ground. Cruz pointed out their Republican hypocrisy, and for thanks, the GOP establishment aimed their guns at him, as well as other fine conservative members of the House and Senate. While the TEA Party and classical liberal conservatives gave the Republicans the House and later the Senate, for thanks the GOP took aim at conservatives..
Now it is up to Trump to save the Republican Party. That thought is not only scary, it is also ironic.
The Republican Party set the stage for someone like Trump to get the nomination by not pushing back in any significant way against Obama’s policies. The people have spoken loud and clear that we don’t like Obama’s policies and unconstitutional over-reaches ever since Obama took office in 2009 and then set to work jamming central government Obamacare down our throats. The mid-terms in 2010 and 2014 should be proof enough. And now in the 2016 General, Hillary lost by huge enough margins in states she was supposed to win.
The election is over, and kudos are also in order to Hillary and Obama for her gracious concession and his walk around the White House to begin the transition.
The truth is, the American people have repudiated Obama’s agenda since the 2010 mid-terms. Trump represents just the latest iteration of American’s disgust with the path we’ve been following since 2009. Trump seems to be serious about reversing nearly all of Obama’s legacy. I pray he does just that.
If Hillary Clinton were anyone other than Hillary Clinton, she would have been in jail over a year ago. The very fact that she conducted business while Secretary of State on her home brewed server is in violation of the Freedom of Information Act, the Records Act, and the Espionage Act. There are at least 16 potential violations, with the counts numbering in the thousands.
What is even worse is the pay for play scheme conducted at the same time for the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Global Initiative, and the ridiculous “speaking fees” that Bill commanded once Hillary became SoS. His speaking fees amounted to an average of 275k beginning in 2009. A typical speaking fee at that time was around 25 k or so for in demand speakers at legitimate venues.
The FBI has been investigating the Clinton Foundation for over a year, predating even the rogue email server controversy. Thanks to Peter Schweizer’s book, “Clinton Cash”.
(the above movie begins at around the 14:56 mark)
Exactly one week ago, the FBI and James Comey said that they were re-opening the investigation into Hillary, due to new evidence acquired during their investigation into Anthony Weiner’s sexting issue with a fifteen year old. They seized a lap-top, and behold, it had 650,000 emails featuring Huma Abedin and Hillary Clinton on it. Dick Morris is speculating that said laptop is not Huma’s or Anthony’s at all, it is Hillary’s missing laptop for over two years, and that Huma was simply holding it for safe-keeping in order to document a future book or something. As I recall, that is exactly the same reason why Nixon installed a secret tape recording machine in the Oval Office, and he got ran out of Dodge for erasing 18 minutes of tape, once it was discovered.
The election is next Tuesday, so if you have not voted already, please vote for anyone other than this un-indicted felon.
There was good reason for Clinton to hide the laptop. It contained ALL of the Hillary Clinton emails that were originally on her personal serve when she worked in the State Department. It had not yet been picked clean yet because no one knew it existed. That laptop housed the 33,000 emails designated as “personal” that Hillary never turned over to the State Dept. and claimed to delete.
Two days ago, I wasn’t going to vote for anyone for Pres. I can’t fully support the R, D or L. They are all progressives, the differences are really just shades of gray.
Since I am a conservative, a true Classic Liberal, this is a huge issue for me. We are faced with the most trying election in all of our lifetimes. There are no good choices. That is pretty typical for me, the only Republican nominee that I’ve supported in the primaries was Ronald Reagan. I was TEA Party before there was a TEA Party. It is really Constitutional Conservatives, with libertarian leanings. I am radical in the sense that our Founding Fathers laid out in our founding documents. Our country was founded on the radical idea that we the people have rights, sovereignty and liberty. What followed was the most successful nation in history mostly due to limited and restrained government as applied to the citizens, we the people. Continue reading Vote for Pence→
Hillary and Trump are starting to heat up. Trump calls Hillary a bigot, Hillary calls Trump a racist.
The polls are the polls, Hillary is still in the lead by 3 to 5 points. I won’t be dealing with any of that in this post, instead it primarily concerns the ridiculous politically incorrect nonsense foisted upon us by marxists across the country today.
It has been crystal clear since the Iranian Green Revolution that Obama has been on Iran’s side. We should want them to fall, for a very large variety of reasons.
Instead, we seem to be supporting Iran, who are Russian and Syrian allies, and who are also the largest state sponsor of terror, including and especially against Israel. While the CIA had plans in place to support democratic uprisings whereever they may occur, we have learned that Obama told them to stand down during Iran’s “Green” Revolution.
>> John Brennan, director of the Central Intelligence Agency, said last week that there was evidence much of the money Iran has received from sanctions relief was being used for development projects. “The money, the revenue that’s flowing into Iran is being used to support its currency, to provide moneys to the departments and agencies, build up its infrastructure,”<<
Sure John. That is why we paid 400 million in cash, through Swiss Francs and Euros. It is after all illegal to send US currency to Iran, to say nothing of a wire transfer isn’t it? Aren’t you the guy who converted to Islam during Gulf War I?
