THE OUTRAGEOUS SPENDING BILL

Sunday, March 25th, 2018

 

  Thanks to Anthony Bruno for sharing this analysis of the outrageous and obscene omnibus bill that President Trump just signed.  Particularly offensive is  the tax payers’ money that is going to other countries.  It is shameful that in order to fund our military, all sorts of pork barrel spending was included in this bill. Congress is irresponsible with the money that is entrusted to them from the American taxpayer.  We need to replace these big spenders with true fiscal conservatives.
 Be sure to scroll down to Rush Limbaugh’s transcript of today’s program regarding this bill.     Nancy
Those of us that understand the dis-ingenuousness of politicians who promise but never
deliver are seeing once again the Congress has passed a six month budget that will cost us
more than $1 trillion, ‘funded’ with debt and will not address important issues that will
now have to wait until 2020 when another budget will be due!
Three key campaign issues of President Trump, defunding of Planned Parenthood and
sanctuary cities, and building the wall on the Southern border are not included in this
budget to the satisfaction of Democrats and half of Republicans than couldn’t care
less about the president’s promise to the people that elected him.
Even one issue Democrats say are deeply concerned about, ‘Dreamers’, DACA children
are also not protected, even though it really doesn’t hurt their cause as until legislation
is written they’re here to stay and the “chain’ of relatives also will not be deported.
This was enough to warrant a presidential veto which did not occur, but, will it be
enough to give Democrats a Congressional majority in November?
What else is in this legislative concoction? The following are requests from the Trump
Administration which were rejected.
1. No increased in the number of ICE ( Immigration and Customs Enforcement)
2. Detention centers for apprehended illegals are not being increased.
3. Sanctuary cities will continue to be funded.
4. Only 33 miles of new fencing on the Texas border will be funded,  none may
     resemble the wall prototypes being tested.
5. Funding to enhance border security of nations in conflict in the Middle East,
    not here in the United States.
6. African Development Foundation, Corporation for National Community Service,
    Corporation for Public Broadcasting ALL will receive funding.
7. The National Endowment for the Arts & Humanities did get a cut, $1000 less than
     the combined $300 million received in previous budget!
8. Woodrow Wilson Center, a “think tank”  receives $12 million.
9. Planned Parenthood gets $500 million a year.
Many organizations on this list are self sustaining, pay their executives and employees
handsomely, yet each year they grovel to Congress for more funding, all indifferent
to the great debt taxpayers carry.

ANALYSIS OF TRUMP’S DACA PROPOSAL

Friday, January 26th, 2018

 

Thanks to Mike Scruggs for sharing his comments and this article by Mark Krikorian who was an ICON guest speaker last year.     Nancy

 Here is the Center for Immigration Studies’ Krikorian on Trump 1.8 million DACA/Dreamer Amnesty.

 

I liked the Goodlate-Labrador House bill and the Cotton-Perdue RAISE bill in the Senate much better.

 

Trump’s proposal may get 60 votes in the Senate, but the American people and especially conservatives in the GOP may regret the actual results in a few years.

 

I am very disappointed with Trump’s latest proposal but maybe it can be fixed–fixed a lot–See Krikorian’s article.

 

In my opinion, without E-Verify and Visa Control the wall will only be about 25% effective.

Most will just get a legal visa and ignore its expiration.

 

See below for Krikorian’s article.  Why do these politicians not consult with the Center for Immigration Studies before they announce a plan?   Mike Scruggs

The White House immigration outline was released today and it’s not good. It could change tomorrow, for all we know, but as it stands now, this is a preemptive surrender on several issues.

The enforcement component is fine, as far as it goes – there’s no E-Verify, but the White House decided months ago not to push that, thinking it would be a bridge too far for Democrats, since it impacts illegals who are already here.

But the amnesty and chain migration components are fatally flawed. The fact that the amnesty would include a path to citizenship (i.e., the beneficiaries would eventually get green cards like regular immigrants) is fine with me – if you’re going to amnesty illegal aliens, just rip off the band-aid and get it over with.

REJECTED AUSTRALIA ‘REFUGEES’ HEADED TO U.S.

Wednesday, January 24th, 2018

 

REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT WATCH

Australian rejected ‘refugees’ on the way to US this week!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 23, 2018

We can get excited about the slowdown in the normal refugee flow to America (see post yesterday), but here comes the very abnormal flow—58 of the Australia-rejected mostly single men who have been detained by the Aussies for as long as four years will now be free in America.

The deal, originally agreed to by Obama as he was walking out the door, represents an application of international refugee law that is simply unheard of and possibly illegal.

A legitimate asylum seeker is to ask for asylum in the first safe country in which he or she arrives.  If Australia rejected them, they should be returned home, not given a ticket to America!

Here they come, mostly Muslim young men that Australia refused to admit to its mainland.   Photo: SBS News

 

This batch is going to: North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Georgia!  

And, you know that resettlement contract agencies in those states know they are coming and this will all be kept secret from your ‘welcoming’ towns!

ILLEGAL ALIENS GET PRIORITY BOARDING ON COMMERCIAL FLIGHTS

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

 

Now illegal aliens are getting priority boarding on commercial flights?

As if commercial airline flights weren’t miserable enough, now we have Homeland Security officials escorting unscreened groups of illegals onto commercial airline flights, riding alongside paying passengers.  In another example of special treatment, the illegals board with all their luggage on a priority boarding basis, ahead of paying passengers.

It’s the return of catch-and-release, and it’s responsible for a nearly threefold surge of illegal crossers of the U.S.’s southern border in the past few months, according to Judicial Watch.

Judicial Watch writes:

The illegal aliens wear red HHS wrist bands and receive “the gold glove treatment,” according to a veteran federal official, who added that the undocumented immigrants [sic] get priority boarding ahead of all other passengers, including law enforcement personnel.  “It is shameful and dangerous,” said a seasoned Homeland Security agent with direct knowledge of the secret operations.  Labor personnel from front-line Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agencies have complained about the cost and security risk of flying illegal alien minors to any destination of their choosing within the U.S., according to a longtime Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official present at the meetings.

Score another one for illegal immigrants being better treated by the law compared to ordinary Americans.

With this going on, what is the purpose of airline screening at all?  If someone with any background whatever (and a high number of criminals) can ride commercial without screening, why are millions of law-abiding Americans with no criminal background or terrorist ties forced to be screened?  Americans were asked to give up a lot in the wake of 9/11 due to the presence of terrorists.  The fact that illegals aren’t doing the same just underlines the uselessness of the rules.

There are also the health concerns.  Illegals by definition are unscreened for infectious and contagious diseases.  Forcing them and their unscreened luggage, which may have traveled through deserts, truck cargo holds, and other flea- and vermin-infested places, represents a health hazard all by itself.  But what’s really outrageous is that the American passengers – the elderly man in vulnerable health, the woman with small children – have no right to say “no” to sitting next to or near such passengers.  Already it’s known that in 2014, the Homeland Security agents attempted to dump illegal immigrants with known communicable diseases into the small city of Murietta, and the locals protested.  (They got dumped in San Diego instead, now the site of a severe hepatitis outbreak.)

Thirdly, there’s the business angle, which is that passengers who purchase their tickets last and arrive latest, usually get the highest prices and the worst seats.  Compare and contrast to illegals who pay nothing (despite having thousands to pay the human-smugglers who got them to the border) for these flights, get priority boarding, and make the air travel that much more miserable for ordinary paying Americans.

It’s not just bad for Americans; it’s bad for the illegals, too.  Imagine being reared in a tiny village in a small Central American country, paying a human-smuggler to the continent-wide country to el norte and, upon arriving in this vast foreign expanse, suddenly being transported on wings, thousands of miles above, to the city of your choice, watching it magically appear in the scope of a few hours.  Wouldn’t that make you think of the U.S. government as your all-powerful protector?  And wouldn’t that make you seek more services from that same benevolent patrón?  It’s not a good way to get these people started on their road to being Americans, if that is the aim.

It’s baffling.  Why aren’t these people placed on contracted buses at a minimum?  Why are commercial passengers, paying hundreds or thousands for their flights, being asked to pay?  Is there a reason President Trump or his surrogates can’t explain this to us?  Yes, we know they are probably doing this out of a fear of lawsuits on overcrowding from left-wing activist groups, but dumping the problems onto airline passengers and giving the law-breakers causing the problem the gold-star treatment isn’t the answer.

DON’T  BELIEVE THE MYTHS ABOUT DREAMERS

The media have done an outstanding job of creating a winsome stereotype of the nearly 700,000 beneficiaries of Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. 

To hear the media tell it, virtually all of these young people are in college — or already graduated from college. Those no longer pursuing their studies are serving nobly in the military, launching promising civilian careers, or otherwise earnestly chasing the American Dream.

Any recollections they may have of their home countries, we are told, are vague at best. Indeed, they’ve become so fully “Americanized,” they would be lost if they were returned to the now- foreign tongue and culture of their native lands.

This characterization of Dreamers may be accurate for many. But it is far wide of the mark for many DACA beneficiaries. It’s main goal is to generate sympathy and prod lawmakers to grant them legal amnesty.

But history shows that every grant of amnesty triggers even more illegal immigration. Before lawmakers make any final decision on the issue, they would do well to take a closer look at those who benefited from DACA.

ONE-THIRD OF 214 ARRESTED MS-13 GANGSTERS WERE ‘UNACCOMPANIED ALIEN CHILDREN’

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

 

One-Third of 214 Arrested MS-13 Gangsters Were ‘Unaccompanied Alien Children’

Almost one-third of 214 U.S.-based MS-13 gang members arrested in an international sweep were invited into the United States by President Barack Obama’s “Unaccompanied Alien Children” policy.

The successful “Raging Bull’ sweep was announced by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Deputy Director Tom Homan in a joint press conference at ICE headquarters in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.

The operation is a “significant step towards dismantling and eradicating MS-13 in the United States and in El Salvador,” said  Deputy Assistant Attorney General David Rybicki, the second-ranking official at DOJ’s Criminal Division. El Salvador police also arrested 53 gang members in El Salvador.

Sixteen of the 214 arrestees in the United States are U.S. citizens. Five were legal immigrants.

Ninety-three of 214 arrestees are charged with federal or state criminal offenses and will face prison time in the United States, said Derek Benner, the deputy executive associate director of the Homeland Security Investigations division. 

The group of 214 include 193 illegal aliens, including 121 arrestees who will be deported but will not face criminal charges.

VIDEO – HOW DID MAXINE WATERS GET SO RICH? TUCKER CARLSON

VIDEO    MAXINE WATERS VS TUCKER CARLSON

Maxine Waters Said It’s ‘Racist’ for Tucker Carlson to Ask How She Got So Rich — He Responds

How did elected official Maxine Waters get so rich?

That’s what Fox News’ Tucker Carlson wants to know, though he’s not alleging she did anything wrong.

But the lawmaker said it was “racist” to even ask the question!

Rep. Waters represents one of the poorest districts in California, yet she lives in a $4.3 mansion “in one of the richest and whitest neighborhoods in L.A.,” Carlson said. And she doesn’t even live in her district.

Carlson goes over more curious facts about the woman whose salary is funded by taxpayers:

TRUMP GRINDS THE G20, THE BUREAUCRATIC UNDERGROUND AND CNN INTO HAMBURGER

Monday, July 10th, 2017

 Thanks to Charlie Hendrix of Ohio for sharing this excellent article.  Nancy 

Trump Grinds the G20, the Bureaucratic Underground, and CNN into Hamburger

This was a week of startling contrasts. The President reasserted (against a decades-long leftist attack on it) the significant achievements of Western civilization and the need to vigorously defend it. His speech prefaced the G20 meeting in Hamburg, where leftists rioted, burned, and looted while the G20 leaders ponced about and wined and dined in style, apparently oblivious to the havoc which their open border policies and multiculturalist mindset had birthed. As Trump worked successfully on trade and defense issues in Europe, his administration was quietly plugging security leaks and maladministration in our own bureaucratic underground.

A. Poland

Western Europe has been blinded by ideological nonsense. On the one hand it has worked assiduously to separate religion and politics. On the other hand, it has welcomed in hordes of Islamists. In contrast, to quote Zoltan Balog, Hungary’s Minister for Human Resources “in the case of Islam it is religion that determines politics.”

Eastern Europe, in particular Poland, was the right place to defend Western culture and values. And Trump did so brilliantly to the great delight of the thousands who flocked to hear him.
