Family Separation at the Border Vs Abortion, A Fallacious Comparison

The Left’s new mantra is to demonize President Trump for separating families at the border while ignoring the law, and the fact that this practice has been ongoing since Clinton in 1997, then Bush, then their regal standard-bearer, Obama!  They ignore that 10,000 of the 12,000 separated minors came across the border ILLEGALLY WITHOUT THEIR PARENTS!  They ignore the fact that in the past week when they were “so” outraged at the family separations, 17, 811 babies were ripped from their mother’s womb and killed!  Abortion is the Ultimate Family Separation Tragedy!

Make no mistake, this faux outrage by the left has nothing to do with protecting children.  It is a political strategy to justify OPEN BORDERS in the 2018 Mid-Term and the 2020 Presidential elections.  The Left is seeing that President has succeeded in convincing the American People that his immigration policies of building a wall, eliminating the Visa Lottery, Chain Migration, and tightening the border security and enforcement is the only sensible path to border security and homeland safety. 

President Trump Will NOT Back Down!

What the Left is finally understanding is that this President will not stand idly by and allow them to dominate the narrative!  What the Left is finally understanding is that this President sees Border Security and the Protection of the Homeland as a principle, and not some sound bite!  What the Left is finally understanding is that this President sees the elimination of Open Borders as a principled means to ensure prosperity for American citizens and especially critical to uplifting economically disadvantaged minorities.  

ICE, the Phony Straw Man:

See the source image

As a side note, the Left is clamoring for the elimination of ICE, Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  ICE does not detain and separate illegals crossing the border.  This is done by the Border Patrol (CBP, Customs and Border Protection) who then MUST turn over unaccompanied minors or minors whose parents are being prosecuted to the Health and Human Services agency!  Never try to confuse a liberal with FACTS!  Even Fox News has not recognized this factual error in the Left mantra to “Eliminate Ice”.  

ICE is responsible for deporting criminal illegal aliens, prosecuting smugglers and human traffickers and interdicting terrorists threats at the border.  In 2017, the ICE ERO division (Enforcement, Removal Operations), arrested over 143,000 people and convicted over 92% of those arrested.  In 2016, the ICE HSI unit in charge of investigating and prosecuting human trafficking, initiated 1,029 investigations with a link to human trafficking and recorded 1,952 arrests, 1,176 indictments, and 631 convictions; 435 victims were identified and assisted.  ICE also is responsible for border counter terrorism and the illegal movement of goods, drugs and currency.  So, who does the Left see as the heir apparent to this very effective agency?  NO one!  They merely use ICE erroneously, probably because their wacky membership can remember the word ICE, in order to gin up support for Open Borders!

Losing Battle for the Left

The Left’s protests on this issue will fizzle as did the women’s march and other similar contrived “outrages” ginned up by the Left.  The real issue is that Donald J. Trump is living up to his promises and literally wiping out decades of Left Wing Socialist re-engineering of the United States of America and its foundation, the US Constitution.  This President has annihilated Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of this nation, PERIOD!  

But, be prepared, when this issue backfires on the Left, and it is already starting, they will slither onto another OUTRAGE.  But, this President, will continue to OUTWORK them and their media lackeys and ultimately triumph over their destruction of our Constitutional Republic…

FAKE NEWS-Family Separation Political Fallacy

Obama Policies Now Condemned by the Left as a Trump Failure!

24,000 Detained by Obama, 12,000 by Trump

Today, 85% of Separated Children are UNACCOMPANIED BY PARENTS!

Dention of immigrant children - 2014 and 2018

“Stupid is as Stupid Does”!

The Left creates a problem, then blames the Republicans, especially President Trump, for not fixing the problem!  Then, the Left’s media covers “Trump’s failures” wall-to-wall, and many Sheeples believe the rotten media without even educating themselves with the truth!  If you don’t like Fake News, stop watching the mainstream media, MSNBC and CNN, then do your own research! 

Ignorance is NOT BLISS, it is a road to the Death of Liberty!

The current child separation statutory and Flores ruling of the 9th Circuit court has its roots back to the Clinton administration.  The purpose by the left was to create a false emotional issue and visual of children being “ripped” from the arms of their parents.  Yes, the Left purposely created the child separation policy so they could whip up outrage against the policy and then allow families to come in to the country illegally without detention.  Feel smart now?  Open Borders is the Goal, the Children are merely pawns of the Left!

Why Now?

  • One, the mid-term elections are a mere 4 months away and the Left has no winning policies.
  • Two, the Justice Department IG report is damning to the Left, its hold over the DOJ and the FBI, and especially to HRC’s “exoneration” by Comey and his biased cronies.
  • The Trump economy is going gang busters and no matter how loony Nancy Pelosi gets with her “crumbs” and other insane rants the Left has no answer to the lowest unemployment for Blacks and Hispanics in history.  

The Left is looking down the barrel of another embarrassing election loss and this one during a mid-term election that should be easy for them!  The Left and its media lapdogs cannot win without a straw issue.  IF the American people educate themselves, the Left will lose this separation issue and the Left will be blamed as they should be!  Especially since the Left leader in the Senate said he will NOT support legislation to solve the child separation, or any other immigration legislation! 

This should be enough for any thinking person to see that the Left needs issues, not solutions!

Think about your own children.  Illegals entering this country by definition are not screened for communicable diseases.  Illegal children have not received the same vaccines that your children have but are in the same classrooms with your children!  Communicable diseases that were “conquered” by this country are now on the rise, including tuberculosis!

Pres. Trump Makes Me Tired, Just Trying to Keep Up With Him!

I am tired and it is only Wednesday!  I have never observed a President multi-task to the degree of our President!  Not only can’t Congress even come close to keeping up with President Trump, the Stock Market and certainly the media are driving themselves crazy trying to predict the future, economically or politically!

This week, Trump is:

  • Moving the Military (National Guard) to our Southern border to stop illegal immigration, drug smuggling, and human trafficking.
  • Reviewing ways the Military can expand their rules of engagement at the Southern Border rather than just playing a support role to ICE and the Border Patrol.
  • Giving Mexico an ultimatum on keeping the “Caravan of Illegal Immigrants” from reaching the US Border.  Even threatening to delay the new NAFTA deal!
  • Doubling and tripling down on Chinese trade infractions and trade imbalance including taking them to the WTO, adding to the list of demands to balance our trade, and holding firm in spite of pushback from China and our stock market.
  • Challenged our Senate to dump the filibuster rule and get back to a majority rule to pass his agenda, especially the wall, and confirm his appointments.
  • Challenged Congress to step up and pass real border security and build the wall.
  • Formulating the best method to get us out of Syria by engaging our allies in the Middle East and step up financing our engagement and taking more direct responsibility for the outcome in Syria.
  • Challenging Congress to rethink the last budget busting bill they passed and cut it back and fund more of his priorities.
  • Took on the US Post Office contract with Amazon that costs the US taxpayers $1.50 for every package the USPS delivers for Amazon.
  • Even co-hosted an Easter Egg Roll at the White House with Melania.

Plus, he is still fighting the war in Afghanistan; winding down the war in Syria; mopping up in Iraq; planning Tax Cut II; Setting parameters for Welfare Reform; and much more.  How do you know he is working at the speed of light?  No One in Congress can even find a camera to complain about the Speed of Trump!  The RINOs in Congress better get behind this President or they will be up for early retirement!

It is nice to have Roseanne reboot her pro-Trump sitcom, but with Trump who needs television for entertainment!  Not me!

Swamp V Trump-$1.3 Trillion Spending-No Wall

Who Lost In This Latest Budget Fight?

Elected Officials View of Your Money!

First of all, for those who are wringing your hands and saying that Trump betrayed his campaign promises and sold out to the swamp and the Washington elites, man-up (or woman-up)!

In 14 months, do you really think that one man can completely change the power broker controlled Washington Swamp?  The House and the Senate are “controlled” by “Republicans”, NOT TRUMP AGENDA SUPPORTERS!  

Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are deeply entrenched members of the Washington Elites as are the Republican members of both houses and are absolutely aligned against Trump’s border security agenda and his immigration policies.  They are aligned against his America-First trade policies that will put America back onto somewhat of a level trade playing field with China, The European Union and South Korea.  They totally support the Mueller investigation of Trump as a way of hobbling him and keeping him in check with the threat of prosecution.  Finally, they know that he needs to keep control of the House and Senate in the 2018 Mid-Term elections if he does not want to face a Democrat Impeachment process and an even more obstructionist legislative body! 

Could any of you stood up any better against the Washington Establishment than Trump has for the past 14 months?  I think not!

See the source image

Pundits Panic!  Good Grief.  For the third time, even Rush Limbaugh is all wobbly wondering, and even egging on his listeners, if Trump “caving” to this $1.3T spending budget buster will be the end to Trump’s loyal base!  The first time Limbaugh got all wobbly was when Trump brought in a bi-partisan group to discuss immigration and the second when Trump once again brought in a bi-partisan group to discuss gun-control.  Limbaugh’s immediate reaction to both was that Trump had just alienated his base and it is all over.  Wow, talk about a lack of faith and a total lack of loyalty!

Did y’all think the swamp was going to roll over and embrace the Trump and his policies that are hell-bent on taking away their power and restoring the power to the people?  Did you think that Ryan, McConnell, Pelosi, and Schumer were going to play fair and not set land mines smack dab in the middle of Trump’s path?  Did you think that the Washington Elite would give Trump a victory on the Wall, tightening border security, Immigration Reform, Visa Reform, and so on?  These are Trump’s policies, not the policies embraced by the Washington Elites made up of Republicans and Democrats.  

Why did Ryan and McConnell support the Trump Tax Cuts?  Simple.  The 2018 Mid-Terms are right around the corner and these two jerks have not had a legislative victory in years.  They needed a win to run on and tax cuts were the wagon they hitched their fortunes to.  They didn’t care if Trump got most of the glory but they knew that a good economy is hard for the Democrats to run against.  Giving into Trump’s other Agenda items, especially immigration related issues, would be a win for Trump and a loss for Ryan and McConnell’s big buck backers.   They are pathetic and should never have been elected, ever!

Trump’s Win and Loss

Trump’s #1 priority is rebuilding the military and you would think that it would be the #1 priority of all patriots.  Not so fast.  It was Congress, including the Republicans that agreed to Sequestration that emasculated our military and degraded our military capabilities to early 20th century levels.  Trump is facing possible conflicts in North Korea, Iran, and Syria and has to have a show of strength to stave off China and Russia.  The military build-up was the perfect carrot with which to trap Trump into agreeing to this spending and policy nightmare.  The military funding was a win for the President.

Trump temporarily lost his drive to defund sanctuary cities/States; funding for his wall; beefing up border security; ending chain migration; ending the Visa Lottery; and getting control of spending and re-establishing a sane budgeting process.  All of these issues are firmly opposed by big business, big donors, and their lobbyists up and down K Street in DC.  He also lost the psychological war against the idiotic Mueller Russian Collusion Probe as this deal will be perceived on the Left as a weakening of President Trump.

Trump Veto?  The President could have vetoed this insane bill but what were the trade-offs?  Congress had already left DC for another 2 week vacation!  So, if Trump had vetoed the bill, and triggered a shut-down, it would have been at least a week before he could drag them back into the swamp!  Even when they came back, it would have taken days if not weeks to get some kind of agreement to fund the government.  This accentuates the trap Ryan and McConnell set for Trump by not giving him, nor their members, any time to debate and make changes to this bill.   In the interim, our men and women in the military would not be paid and most of them are living pay-check to pay-check!  Other government employees would be furloughed and would not be paid as well.  But the political push-back against Trump would be hard for him to fight as he would be standing alone against Congress and the media while his precious military would not be receiving their pay while risking their lives for even the traitors in Congress!

Trump needs your support now more than ever!  He is still fighting for you, are you still fighting for and supporting Trump?

 

See the source image

Who Else Lost?

 Ryan and McConnell and the Republican Elites seriously damaged their chances to keep the house and increase their seats in the Senate in the 2018 Mid-Terms.  These idiots actually thought they could run against the Trump Agenda and win in the upcoming Mid-Terms.  Their own egos and that of their donors think that running away from, and actually opposing, the Trump Agenda is a winning hand.  Even a Democrat beat a Republican in Pennsylvania a couple of weeks ago by RUNNING ON THE TRUMP AGENDA, while the Republican was “Trump Squishy”.  Ryan and McConnell think that Trump’s popularity did not help this feckless Republican candidate even though he campaigned for this candidate.  Without the Trump base, Ryan and McConnell will both become minority leaders in 2019!  They deserve it, WE DON’T!

The taxpayers and Trump supporters were also big losers in this deal.  They killed funding for the Wall by stipulating that Trump could not spend the money on any wall that was made of concrete!  Barbed wire is probably OK.  Budget deficits will continue to swell and restoring a sane budget process seems to be even more of a pipe dream!  

What Are the Risks to Abandoning Trump

Well, if you like Obama and Clinton then go for it and abandon Trump.  If the Democrats take back the Senate and the House, Trump, and us, are toast!  The Hard Left, without any real opposition from the Republican RINOs, will impeach Trump with any trumped-up charge they can create.  Pelosi and Schumer will rise to lead both houses and Trump, and us, will be stymied at every turn!  Trump may actually win in 2020 but I would not blame him if he decides not to run if the Ryan/McConnell madness leads to Democrat control of Congress in 2018. 

TRUMP DOES NOT NEED THIS HEADACHE (SERVING AS PRESIDENT), BUT, WE NEED TRUMP TO BE OUR PRESIDENT!

Democrats-A Party Without A Cause In 2018

Illegal Immigration Is the “Salvation” for Democrats in 2018/2020, Really!

See the source image

There is no doubt that the Democrat Party has locked itself in as an “Identity Party” by polarizing various target groups such as women, LGBT, Blacks, non-Christians, and Hispanics, and anyone else they can turn into victims.  In doing so, the only way to herd their flock into lockstep is to make sure that the economy is mediocre or bad so many of their flock are seemingly disenfranchised, that their flock groups feel threatened by the evil conservatives who are trying to return them to slavery, economic or social bondage.  The toughest task the Democrat herders face is to insure that one or more of their groups are not at odds with other group(s).  

During the Obama years of economic stagnation and the demise of opportunity and economic and social advancement, the Democrat groups pretty much towed the Democrat progressive line and kept their hands out for government subsidies to seemingly make up for their lack of opportunity caused by anyone else but themselves and their wonderful Democrat/Progressive masters. 

But!  Donald Trump stormed onto the scene with a message of economic hope, true socio-economic opportunity, and a clear emphasis on the middle class regardless of sex, sexual orientation, religion, or race.  He even challenged Black voters, “What the Hell do you have to lose?”  Trump cracked the once solid Democrat identity politics herd by introducing the chance for a better life regardless of which herd group you had been corralled into by the Democrats.  Further, Trump’s message of safety, strength, and pride lifted many out of despair that had heretofore not participated in the political process of voting.  Even the once solid Democrat stronghold of Union membership shifted from the Democrat herd to Trump with Trump garnering 42% of the union vote!

But, where does illegal immigration fit into this discussion and specifically to the 2018 mid-terms and the 2020 Presidential race?

The Coastal Democrat/Progressives have tripled down on illegal immigration and illegal immigrants living in the US in the past 18 months.  Sanctuary States and Cities have become the norm for the left and right coasts to the exclusion and detriment of the legal residents of those states.  Those same states have tripled down on socialist, high taxation, and welfare state, policies that have created a degree of homelessness never seen before and the death of their middle class that cannot survive the high taxation, low employment opportunity, and unrealistic housing costs.  They are substituting their once strong citizen middle class with illegal aliens.

California is leading the legal battles against the Trump Administration and are outright defying Federal Laws on immigration and immigration enforcement.  The California Governor and his administration have passed laws in direct conflict with US Immigration law and the US Constitution.  Recently, the Mayor of Oakland, a prior member of the Governor’s staff, warned illegal immigrants that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would be arresting illegal immigrants who had committed crimes and were subject to deportation.  This warning allowed over 800 ICE targeted illegal criminal aliens to avoid capture and deportation and to remain in the Bay Area to prey on local, legal and illegal members of the community.

So, by promoting Sanctuary States, Cities, and Counties, the Democrat Party has decided to place the fate of illegal aliens, including criminal illegal aliens, at the forefront of their party to the exclusion of their prior target groups such as women, LGBT, Blacks, non-Christians, legal Hispanics and victims in general.  47% of likely voters in these states oppose their State’s sanctuary designation!  The safety of all women, LGBT, Blacks, non-Christians, and legal Hispanics are put at risk by these policies.  The coastal State’s spending on supporting illegals is robbing their citizens of funds, while being the highest taxes States in the US, to improve their communities while creating a homelessness problem in once beautiful cities is a blight unlike the ghettos in third world countries.

See the source image  

Impact On Other Democrat Party Identity Groups

Prioritizing and promoting an influx of illegal immigration into a job market drives down wages for legal residents, especially for Blacks and Hispanics.  This policy also increases the burden on local schools and drives down the quality of education and the safety for legal students.  Welfare services are likewise stretched and draw down on the State and local governments resources.  Coddling illegal criminal aliens and preventing them from being deported puts all of the State’s residents at risk and the Democrat target identity groups are not immune from these risks, in fact, the poorer Black and Hispanic families are often the target of these criminals.

Just to be clear on how great a risk criminal illegal aliens are, consider the following.  Illegal aliens, criminal and non-criminal, make up only 3.7% of the total US population But, they have been charged with and/or convicted of 13.6% of the total crimes committed in the entire US;  responsible for 12% of the murders, 20% of kidnappings, 16% of all drug dealing, and thousands who have been convicted of sex crimes and not yet deported.  

So, how are the Democrats going to use Illegal immigration as their flagship issue in 2018/2020 when this element of our population:

  • Drives down wages for Democrat leaning Blacks.
  • Drives down wages for Democrat leaning legal Hispanics.
  • Robs this nation and their constituents of a net $115 Billion dollars per year in government services provided to support the illegal alien community.
  • Detracts from equality issues for women,  Blacks, Hispanics, the LGBT community, Muslims and other Democrat victims.
  • Robs inner cities of valuable funding that is siphoned off to support illegal aliens rather than being allocated to community development and safety.
  •  Diverts law enforcement resources an decreases the safety of its female,  Blacks, Hispanics, the LGBT community, and Muslims. 

I posit that the Democrat strategy to promote the causes for illegal aliens is a big loser for the Democrat/Progressive chances in 2018/2020!

Republicans in 2018 can only defeat themselves which is not out of the realm of possibility.  If they would adhere to Trump and his agenda, they could pick up 8 more Senate seats and hold the House.  The Republican majority in the Senate needs to start acting like a party in power by confirming all of Trump’s appointees and paring down to a 51 vote majority rule to pass the House bills that are stuck in the do-nothing Senate!  They have Trump’s regulation and tax reform economy to fill their sails into a victorious Mid-Term!  By November, Trump’s tariff/renegotiated trade agreements will add even more jobs to the economy and entice even more investment in the US.  

If the House and the Senate Republicans do stick by Trump’s guns, they will benefit from a higher percentage of the Black, legal Hispanic, and women’s vote.  Why do I say this?  In 2016, Trump already had chipped away at these normally strong Democrat strongholds.  The following voting blocks are where Trump can help the Republicans who are up for re-election.

  • LGBTTrump took 14% of their vote in 2016.  Since then, with the mass shootings, many in the LGBT community have become gun owners and many have joined the NRA.  Safety is a key issue for this group along with jobs and equal opportunity protections.  Trump is proving to more of this community that he does not represent a threat to their way of life but has proven that he can be good for them by providing economic, political and personal security.
  • Blacks: Trump took 8% of the Black vote in 2016.  Since then, his economic policies have driven Black unemployment down to historic lows.  His outreach through HUD and HHS are improving inner city and rural Black community’s quality of life.  He is restoring life to failed cities like Detroit by bringing back entire industries.  Once he gets Congress to act on a comprehensive Education program via Betsy DeVos, Blacks will finally realize their dream for their children through school choice.  Republicans can campaign on these Black community achievements and garner more of this demographics vote than they could imagine.  In 2020. Trump could get close to 20% of the Black vote for his 2nd term re-election!
  • Legal Hispanics:   Trump took almost 30% of the Hispanic vote in 2016.  Trump’s 4 pillar immigration/DACA proposal and his pushing for a DACA solution has won over many of the legal Hispanic voters.   Trump’s economic message and actions have soared employment levels for Hispanics and his SBA programs have swelled the ranks of new Hispanic small businesses.  Trump’s Christian message also resonates with many in the Hispanic community. Republicans need to campaign on Trump’s successes for the Hispanic community and stay behind Trump until the mid-term elections.  If the Republicans in Congress appear to be fighting Trump on immigration reform and border security or his economic programs, they could risk not getting a high percentage of the Hispanic vote.  I predict that in 2020 Trump will 40-45% of the Hispanic vote.
  • Women:   Trump took 41% of the total female vote, 47% of the married women, and 33% of the non-married women in 2016.  Democrats bet their 2018 chances on the #MeToo movement that is turning out to be a nightmare for themselves and their Hollywood and main stream media lackeys!  They will keep dredging up stories about Trump but the economy will trump #MeToo as it applies to Trump in 2020.  Economic and physical security mean a great deal to women voters.  If Trump can fend off North Korea, Iran, Syria and Russia and stalemate any threat from them, this will add to his side of the ledger.  The Democrats have no real economic, physical security or foreign policy message at all.  Obama/Clinton foreign policy is proving to be even more feckless every day.  Republican campaigners need to stay on the Trump message of strength, economic security, physical safety, and foreign policy security and they will garner a majority of the female vote.  Wouldn’t wait for Jennifer Lawrence nor Ashley Judd but I would question myself if they voted for me!

The Democrats have not learned that you cannot create pockets of identity voters and expect them to vote against their own interests, economic, safety, and quality of life.  You can’t prop non-citizens against citizens and expect your pockets of identity voters to stick with you!  Carvell reminded us that it is the Economy Stupid.  He could have said It Is My Self Interest Stupid!

As a California Mayor In The 1970’s, I Had A Birds-Eye View of the Birth of Sanctuary Cities!

Governor Moonbeam is No Laughing Matter!

See the source image

As a 29 year-old Mayor of a smaller, rural, California City in the 1970s, I earned a PhD in Liberal Alinsky identity politics from Governor Jerry Brown.  This was at a time when I was half Democrat and half Republican.  By the time I left Office at the end of Brown’s 2nd term, after dealing with Brown face to face on some issues,  I was a Goldwater Conservative!  

I witnessed members of the League of California Cities (LCC), an association of all city councils throughout California, openly lobby for other cities to join them in an attempt to thwart Federal Immigration laws.  Berkeley, California, no surprise here, 47 years ago, was the first California city to adopt a Sanctuary City ordinance on November 8, 1971!  During the 1970’s Governor Brown set out to memorialize the concept of protecting illegal aliens throughout the State.  The movement was not adopted quickly by most of the 300 plus cities.  But by 1979, when Los Angeles adopted its Special Order 40 that barred LAPD officers from initiating contact with a person solely to determine their immigration status, California’s largest city gave a tremendous boost to sanctuary cities being discussed and implemented throughout California.  By the time Jerry Brown had completed his first two term stints as governor, the die had been cast and California had begun open defiance of Federal Law. 

President Reagan Failed to Act

I was a staunch Reagan supporter when he ran for President as he had done a terrific job as governor of California and I was tired of 20% interest rates under Carter!  Once Reagan became President, I kept waiting for him to stamp out the literal insurrection that had taken hold in California and jail those elected officials who were in open defiance to Federal Immigration Law!  As the years of his terms passed, I became disillusioned  with Republicans failing to take legal action against the Sanctuary City movement that was still in its infancy.  The frustration was even made worse over the 16 post-Brown years as California elected Republican Governors from 1983 through 1999.  Neither Governor Deukmejian nor Governor Pete Wilson took any action to eliminate the drive for cities to adopt Sanctuary City ordinances.

1990-The Death Year for Liberty and Rule of Law in California

In 1990, a Ballot Initiative in California set new term limits for State Elected Officials including the Governor.  (California initiatives are really just a way to con the voters to enact legislation that the State Legislature does not have the guts to enact!)  The problem with this initiative is that it “grand-fathered” Jerry Brown in as a potential 3rd/4th term governor should he decide to run again! 

Remember, it was Brown and his progressives that promoted Sanctuary Cities, and initiated public sector unions for all California public sector workers and teachers.  Brown also sided with environmental groups to halt many long-term infrastructure projects that were vital to California’s growth which was in the process of doubling over a short period of time.  Under Adriana Gianturco, Browns head of California Transportation department in his first two terms, highway building ground to a halt.  Gianturco was so well “liked” she earned the moniker “Giant-Turkey”!   Brown also initiated many anti-business practices.  All of these progressive practices would be set in stone when Brown ran for and won his 3rd term of Governor of California in 2010.

Once back in the Governor saddle in 2010, Brown set out to finish off his “FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION OF CALIFORNIA”.  At the top of his agenda was to protect illegal aliens in California.  During the Obama years this was not a problem as Brown and Obama were kindred spirits when it came to coddling illegal immigrants, environmentalists, and socializing the economies of California and the US.  BUT, Brown and his California progressives did not fathom that a Rule of Law, America First Donald J. Trump could or would be elected President.  But!

About 11 months after President Trump’s election, on October 5, 2017, Jerry Brown signed into California law a bill that designated California a Sanctuary State.  This was done in total defiance of President Trump’s strong stance again illegal immigration and his pledge to strongly support current immigration laws among other America First policies.  The battle lines were then drawn between California and the Federal Government.  

Prior Failure of Republican Presidential Leadership

After 47 years of California’s progressives quest to make California a Sanctuary State, they achieved their goal.  Now it is up to President Trump to re-establish the supremacy of the Federal Government regarding immigration law.  President Trump once again inherited a situation not of his own making but a situation that was ignored by Republican Presidents Reagan, George HW Bush, and George GW Bush

Jerry Brown nurtured and grew an all out defiance of Federal Supremacy not unlike the Southern States when they seceded from the Union in the early 1860s.  If a Governor can ignore Federal Law that was properly enacted as provided for under the US Constitution, then the supremacy clause of the US Constitution is meaningless.  This clause was clearly laid out in Article VI, Clause 2 and reads:

“This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.”

Jerry Brown and California represent the maggot infestation of progressivism that threatens the very fabric of our Constitutional Republic.  President Trump and his America First nationalism represents the last Defence of our great nation.  If States, and Courts, can rule against the supremacy clause with impunity, then our Republic as was founded has ended; thanks to Jerry Brown, who represents the worst in political and environmental activism and identity politics.

DACA Isn’t the Real Issue-LEGAL Chain Migration and the Visa Lottery Is

See the source image

“Legal Immigration”, meaning the granting of permanent residency, adds about 1.2 Million immigrants per year.  But, when you add the immigrants that will be granted residency via chain immigration, this number swells to 5.5 Million new immigrants per year!  (This does not include those granted “temporary” VISAS that allow them to work or attend school in the US.)  In short, through legal immigration, we are adding 15,000 future citizens every day!

Conversation Today:

Are you confused about all of the non-stop rhetoric coming from the Main Stream Media, pundits and your elected officials?  Do you know what a Green Card is?  Do you know what DACA, Chain Migration, the Visa Lottery, Catch and Release and other such immigration terms actually mean?

Today’s rhetoric is focused on the debate surrounding how to deal with the DACA people who were brought into the US as minors by their parents and others.  It is estimated that 1.8 Million people in the US may qualify as DACA applicants if they meet certain conditions.  Of these 1.8 million, only 690,000 have actually signed up as a DACA applicant/candidate.  There is a myriad of reasons why the other 1.1 million potentially eligible DACA people have not signed up.  It is said that DACA eligible people were brought to the US by their parents or others and have not known any other country as home.  This is probably true in some cases while others have actually applied for and traveled back and forth to their parent’s home country which is by definition their home country.  In addition to the 1.8 million DACA eligible applicants, if the current chain migration law is not changed, this could swell immigration by 6.21 million rather than 1.8 million.  This is using a chain migration factor of 3.45 which is the recent trend. (3.45 x 1.8M = 6.21M)  DACA is not the real issue, DACA plus the Current Chain Migration policy is!

If we do not deal with DACA and their related Chain Migration, we will be adding thousands of new potential DACA candidates every year.  Doing nothing leaves the DACA candidates here while their ranks continue to grow!

President Trump and DACA

See the source image

President Trump recently unveiled his 4 point criteria for allowing DACA applicant to eventually gain citizenship.  The President actually put forth all 1.8 million potential DACA eligible people on the table to be eligible for citizenship after 10-12 years.  But, they have to apply; have to qualify for the program; cannot be on government assistance during their probationary period; and cannot commit crimes as specified.  The DACA recipients would only be able to “chain migrate” their spouse and their children.

Again, if we do not deal with DACA and their related Chain Migration, we will be adding thousands of new potential DACA candidates every year.  Doing nothing leaves the DACA candidates here while their ranks continue to grow!

The other three legs of Trump’s DACA plan include modifications to Chain Migration; the elimination of the Visa Lottery; and a $25 Billion dollar funding of the wall, additional ICE agents, and major modifications to the current immigration law including the end to the “catch and release” law.  Why did the President add these three components to his DACA proposal?  Let’s look at Chain Migration, the Visa Lottery and the need to tighten border security via legislation.

Catch and Release and Other Policies:

Catch and Release is an idiotic law that allows any illegal alien who crosses our border to stay in the country until he or she has a hearing to determine if they can be deported.  Sounds great but it really means that if you made it across the border you are home free. The overwhelming majority of these illegal aliens never show up to their court hearing and disperse throughout the US.  Minors who cross and are detained at the border receive even more concessions and benefits.  Plus, if illegal alien parents bring their minor children across the border illegally, those children are now potentially DACA eligible kids.  So, without killing catch and release, you are just encouraging illegal immigration and perpetuating DACA.

The law needs to allow immediate deportation when illegals are detained at the border.  The President is asking for additional judges and court to be set up on the border to quickly adjudicate any detainee issues and expedite deportation.  If not, the border becomes a game of “tag” where an illegal alien wins when they illegally cross the border before an agent can stop them!

The use of E-Verify must be mandated for employers prior to hiring and for governmental agencies before social benefits are approved.  This database has to be updated and all VISA recipients must be added as a tracking mechanism.  VISA overstays is a major contributor to our current illegal alien population! 

Chain Migration:

Above is an example of a “Green Card” that is used today.  Please note, this is a card to identify a PERMANENT RESIDENT.

Today, immigrants who receive “green cards”, were allowed to bring in spouses, children, parents and other relatives who qualify for their “chain”.   Following a cursory vetting, those related to the initiating immigrant are granted a “green card” and were eligible to become citizens!  Today, the ratio between new “green card” holders and those they “chain migrate” is 3.45:1.  For each legal immigrant, they are sponsoring an average of 3.45 people.  Those 3.45, can eventually sponsor other immigrants.  Today, Chain Immigrants comprise over 60% of all immigration!  Between 1981 and 2016, out of 33 million immigrants, 20 million were chain immigrants!

Chain immigration of older parents can dramatically impact social security funds and add a burden to our healthcare system.  The average age of “parental” chain immigrants is 50 years of age.  This is only 12 years prior to attaining the age where they would be eligible for social security.  

Chain migration should be eliminated altogether; or, made a criteria within a merit based system; or at the very least restricted to a spouse and minor children.  Without controls on chain migration, no real migration policy reform is possible.  Chain rolls will continue to swell the immigration numbers.  

Visa-Lottery

Ending the Visa-Lottery is an absolute need.  It is an idiotic practice that has no benefit to the US as a nation.  It is a crap shoot as to who will get in and if they will be a net benefit or cost to the taxpayers.  Plus, beneficiaries of the lottery also have the right to chain migrate their families!  The US must take control of its immigration policy and ensure that new immigrants have the immediate potential to benefit this nation, its economy and culture.

Doing Nothing is Not An Option

Immigration is not one of those issues that do not have an impact if you do nothing to correct its issues.  If immigration is not addressed, each year we will add hundreds of thousand more illegal immigrants; allow more illegal aliens into this country; and continue to spend a net $115,000,000,000 (billion) each year to support the illegal alien population.  Plus, the DACA problem will continue to grow as more minor children are dropped at our borders.  Without ending Catch and Release, the problem is impossible to mitigate.  Granting DACA recipients a path to citizenship without fixing our immigration system and border security, is a fool’s errand.

Trump’s Immigration Proposal-Chill Out! Understand the Plan First!

See the source image

Trump struck a nerve on the Right and the Left when he had Steven Miller announce his Border Wall/DACA/Immigration Plan yesterday.  Given both wings have slammed this proposal, actually gives this plan more, not less, merit!  Pelosi/Schumer and Ted Cruz all hit the mics to thump their chests and condemn the President’s plan!

But, What are the Facts?

Amnesty Vs Path to Citizenship:

The right is clamoring that this plan is Amnesty for 1.8 million DACA candidates.  Any plan to them is equal to amnesty.  When you press them, they say that rather than amnesty, the DACA candidates should get in line like every other immigration applicant.  OK, I agree, but so does Trump!  An immigration applicant files for immigration then undergoes a medical, criminal, and other forms of background checking.  This takes anywhere from 6 months, if you are married to an American citizen, to 3 years plus. 

TRUMP IS PROPOSING THAT THE DACA CANDIDATES WAIT 10-12 YEARS TO BECOME A CITIZEN DURING WHICH TIME THEY UNDERGO THE SAME BACKGROUND CHECKS AND PROVE THAT THEY ARE ELIGIBLE TO BE CONSIDERED AS A DACA CANDIDATE.  Further, during this period, the candidates can be rejected if they enroll to receive any type of government subsistence; or, if they commit a crime; or if they return to their “home” country without permission.

The right is apoplectic about the 1.8M DACA candidates that were included in the President’s plan.  CHILL!  The 690,000 DACA candidates are those who enrolled in the DACA program.  No one really knows but it is estimated that there are another 1.2M potential DACA enrollees who have not signed up yet.  Before you start screaming, “They had their chance”, there is a small roadblock called the US Constitution and its Equal Protection clause.  If a person otherwise qualifies as a DACA Candidate but did not sign up, the likelihood is extremely high that the Supreme Court would allow those people to enroll in DACA.  You may say that they are not citizens and have no rights.  Sorry but since they are in the US and have been residing here they to inherit constitutional protections.  It may be that rather than there being an additional 1.2M potential DACA enrollees, it may be less, it may be more.  But, the President realistically included actual and potential candidates.  Would you rather have this or have him lie to you and in the end you find out there were really 1.8 applicants!  

Since the President is putting a 10-12 year period restriction on the DACA candidates, I would think they would return to their parent’s home country and apply for citizenship!  It may be faster if this plan is adopted!  Since the President put in a 10-12 year implementation plan, this satisfies the BORDER SECURITY FIRST crowd!

$25 Billion for the Wall and Border Security

President Trump’s plan calls for $25Billion to be set aside, and not subject to future Congressional rescission, to build the wall, add more border agents, provide for additional security enhancements to the Southern and CANADIAN borders, and build border courts.  The President knows that he may or may not continue to have Republican majorities in the House and Senate and wants the funding to be set in stone.  Plus, he knows that he cannot implement all of the needed Wall and security changes in one or two budget years.  He does not want to take a chance on having Congress playing games with this funding.  Republicans or Democrats!

Chain Migration

President Trump included an end to chain migration and will ask that it be replaced with merit based migration requirements.  The only vestige to chain migration will be that an approved immigrant can bring his or her spouse and their children.  This also applies to the DACA candidates.

Visa Lottery Program:

The President is proposed that this program be eliminated totally.  As stated above, visa applicants will be subjected to merit based scrutiny and be required to meet specific criteria that documents that they will be contributory to the US economy.  More later.

Port and Northern Border Security

The President is also proposing measures to beef up port security to eliminate incoming illicit drugs and human trafficking.  These same measures will be put in place along our Canadian borders that span approximately 5,500 miles!  Just think how easy it is to cross the great lakes from Canada and enter the US!  Not hard!

Other Provisions:

Before we finish up with the other provisions, what Trump is actually doing is comprehensive immigration!  If he gets most of what he will finishing outlining next week, there were be few if any real major issues remaining regarding our immigration policy.  But, don’t tell the Left or the Media!

Legal Immigration:

The President will cut back on the numbers eligible to be approved to come into this country.  The President is slowing legal immigration to allow time to assimilate all of the chain, lottery, and refugee immigrants that have come into this country in the past 15 years.  He want to make sure we can ensure that hot pockets of unassimilated immigrants are successfully melded into our society and our economy.  He also wants to make sure that during the growth of our economy, that AMERICANS, not immigrants have priority to receive the newly created jobs!

The President is also proposing to crack down on legal Visa overstays that are the largest contributor to our illegal immigration.  As part of his border security provisions, he will be implementing tacking and apprehension policies to eliminate Visa overstays.

The President will also be proposing to beef up and require the use of E-Verify.  I am not sure if he will not only require private sector employees to use E-Verify, but he should force government welfare agencies, State Food Stamp agencies, and other governmental agencies who approve subsistence or healthcare assistance to use E-Verify.  Once the wall and other security policies are put in place, this will ensure that anyone who sneaks through will be caught by E-Verify and asked to leave or be prosecuted.

There will be other details that will be released next week and as they are I will update this post.  But, take a deep breath and take conservative and liberal media with a grain of salt when they rail against the President’s proposal.  Also, remember, final legislation is up to Congress.  So, when I hear Ted Cruz and other condemn this proposal, I would remind them that the President is trying to get YOU TO DO YOUR JOB AND COME UP WITH A BILL YOURSELVES!  It is easy to run up to a mic and complain. 

Actual work is hard, that is why it called work!

If the President can get his proposal through Congress, he will once again accomplish something no one has been able to do since before 1966, solve many immigration issues and secure this great nation.

Dems Killing Support for Illegal Aliens and DACA

See the source image

Democrats and Left-Wing activists are killing support for illegal aliens and for programs such as DACA.  Amnesty is becoming a four letter word and more and more Americans are becoming fed-up with the left and the media trying to shame us into supporting illegal alien causes! 

To be frank, to see illegal aliens DEMAND citizenship or even work permits is becoming repulsive.  America-First is not only a Trump slogan, it is at the core of the majority of US Citizens.

Chain Migration is now a non-starter for US Citizens and the sentiment to repeal this idiotic procedure is high.  The emotional left-wing plea to keep families together is no longer a winner.  If they want to keep their families together, either stay where you are or have the family all apply for citizenship!  This is insane and Trump has the wind at his back on this one as well.

The Visa-Lottery program has no support among thinking American Citizens and whoever thought up this beauty should be deported!  Why on earth should the most prized status in the world, US Citizenship, be handed out in a lottery!  This is insane and Trump has the wind at his back on this one as well.

DACA is another guilt trip by the left that is rapidly losing support especially with the current government shutdown.  Why should illegal aliens be prioritized by Democrats over our military and other government workers and contractors?  Especially given the threat by North Korea, Iran, Russia and China!  This is suicidal but the gun is at the head of US Citizen taxpayers and not the Schumer-Pelosi coalition!  If there is a legislative change to DACA enrollees, it better not include chain migration nor an immediate path to citizenship.  How about a work permit for 5 years during which time the DACA enrollees must seek citizenship through normal channels and cannot receive welfare, food stamps or any form of government subsistence in the interim.  If they do not apply for citizenship or wait for 4 years to start the process, they can finish the process in the country of origin.  And don’t try to guilt-trip us into an extension!

The left and the media have totally overplayed their illegal immigration card and US Citizens are sick and tired of Sanctuary jurisdictions.  They have no more chips on the table nor can they bluff us into submission.  Illegal is illegal no matter what the adjective describes.  Sanctuary State and City chief executives and law enforcement heads who refuse to obey federal immigration laws, must be held accountable as any other criminal.  If someone is killed or injured by an illegal alien in their jurisdiction, they and their State, County or City should be held civilly responsible for paying damages to the victim and/or their surviving families.  Enough is Enough.  

The 2018 mid-term elections may pit US citizens against the left’s support for illegal aliens.  The US is not a nation of Illegal Immigration, it is a nation of LEGAL immigration.  

  • Build the Wall and install electronic surveillance and monitoring.
  • Remove all criminal illegal aliens immediately. If they come back, it is an automatic 10 year sentence in a Joe Arpaio detention facility with pink underwear!
  • Allow for immediate deportation upon border apprehension, including unaccompanied minors.
  • Give current illegal immigrants 5 years to apply for and receive a green card or citizenship.  After that, they are subject to deportation.
  • Stop Chain Migration.
  • Stop the Visa Lottery Program.
  • Hire more border agents
  • Hold the nation of origin responsible for any cost incurred by the US in the apprehension and deportation of their citizens!
  • Create a FEDERAL park in San Francisco and name it the Kate Steinle Memorial Park

Brian Kilmeade’s Bizarre Anti-Trump Positions & Ill Humor Hurt Fox and Friends

Brian Kilmeade

Kilmeade is a co-host of the highly acclaimed and most watched Fox and Friends with Ainsley Earhardt and Steve Doocy.  The format for the show allows the hosts to state their opinion on the current topic and ad lib commentary when they feel appropriate.  It is a combination of hard news, commentary, with real human interest.

See the source image

Doocy and Earhardt tend to use this freedom sparingly and keep to reporting news rather than trying to crack jokes about the current topics or interjecting their opinions over and over again on the same topic.  On the other hand, Kilmeade often tries to turn the news into his personal comedic shtick and mostly falls short of being funny!  If the topic has anything to do with President Trump, Brian oftentimes takes the side of his progressive friends like Senator Jeff Flake or Senator Lindsay Graham!  He also name drops that he spoke to them on such and such a date.  Today provided a good example.

Topic:  Claims of President Trump being a Racist; Trump calling specific countries “shit holes”; and the DACA debate

  • Kilmeade apparently gave little or no credibility to Senators Cotton and Purdue (and the President himself), when they stated publicly that they did not hear Trump use the term “shit hole” nor disparage Haiti or other nations.  Kilmeade said over an over that he thought the President HAD TO explain himself to the American public about his “shit hole” comments, that the President himself denies saying.  Obviously Kilmeade believes that he actually knows what was said because he had talked to Lindsay Graham over the weekend!  Really, Kilmeade believes the Trump-hater Graham over the President of the United States?  
  • Kilmeade has been an unending critic of President Trump’s use of Twitter ever since Trump announced his candidacy!  This is especially true if the Trump Tweets are aimed at Kilmeade’s RINO confidants Senator Graham, Flake, and Bob Corker.  Kilmeade constantly rails against Trump “stepping on his own message” and being non-productive in his use of Twitter.  Earth to Kilmeade, “TRUMP RAN FOR PRESIDENT AGAINST 16 REPUBLICANS AND CROOKED HILLARY AND IS NOW THE 45TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES”, YOU DIDN’T!  Further, Trump can’t step on his own message that he wants to get out.  By definition, it is HIS message!  Maybe Trump is at least as smart as you are and knows that no matter what he does or says, or doesn’t do or say, the Left, RINOs and Never-Trumpers will never accept the Trump Presidency nor Donald J. Trump policies!  He has proven that he can set the message and or stop the current narrative pretty much at will.
  • Kilmeade also counsels the President to COMPROMISE on DACA in order to not shut down the government and to get a fix to DACA.  We realize that either the vote on DACA or on the CR to keep the government running will require 60 votes in the goofy Senate since McConnell will not undue this undemocratic Senate rule and allow majority rule.  But, your assumption that no compromise on DACA means that the government will be shut down is erroneous.  First of all, the two bills are separate.  if the Democrats and your RINO friends shut down the government, it is on the Democrats and RINOs.  If DACA, coupled with the border wall, border security, end to chain immigration and the visa lottery system as defined by the President is not passed, that is on the Democrats and the RINOs.  Trump has already compromised on the DACA program by even considering permanent status for the DACA enrollees by using the legislative process.  Obama, the Democrats and RINOs loved the unconstitutional move by Obama to create “DACA” in the first place as it got Congress off of the hook!  Maybe you want to try backing the President so we can ensure that the government is not shut down and DACA is once and for all fixed.  RINOs idea of compromise is giving in against principle and the Democrats believe compromise is either getting everything they want or walking away and blame the Republicans.  The Democrats only want to keep DACA alive and unresolved so they have a 2018 issue!  I have no doubt that if the government is shut down and/or DACA is not fixed you will blame the President.

Kilmeade, Insecure or Just Insensitive?

Then there is the issue of Brian’s comments regarding women.  It is hard to discern whether Brian is insecure when it comes to dealing with women as equals or is just plain insensitive.  Brian’s attempt at humor falls way short on this topic and is oftentimes disgusting and demeaning. 

In late 2012, Brian once quipped when asked by a caller on his radio show when he was interviewing Alisyn Camerota,I don’t know who was the scout that got you guys, but they rock.”   Brian responded;  “It was actually – we go to the Victoria’s Secret catalog and we said, “Can any of these people talk?” And they all could and they all went to college.”  Seriously?  Then how does Fox scout men?  Look for men with calluses on their knuckles from dragging them on the ground!

Again in 2012, Brian ticked off his co-host Gretchen Carlson with another “unfunny” quip following a segment that included Steve Doocy interviewing members of the U.S. Navy Band about the band’s recent inclusion of women.  Following the interview, Brian shoved his shoe in his own mouth by saying, “Women are everywhere. We’re letting them play golf and tennis now. It’s out of control.”  Carlson obviously did not see the humor (neither do I) in Brian’s remarks and told Brian, “You read the headlines. Since men are so great. Take them [women] away,”.  Brian, always having to have the last laugh when he steps in it replied, “All right. Finally.   Leaving an all male crew, she needed a shower.”  Watch the encounter here:    https://youtu.be/vGrgVC7u7DU.

Brian also has a habit of interrupting Ainsley when she is making a point counter to his.  Steve will sometimes intervene but Ainsley now apparently feels comfortable and openly confronts him when he steps on her line, or toes.  

Brian vs Dr. Alveda King Today:

See the source image

Today Brian was on his high horse demanding that Trump come out and “Explain” his shit hole comments to the American People.  He kept making this point throughout the show.  Towards the end of the show, they had Dr. Alveda King on to discuss MLK Day, John Lewis’s anti-Trump comments, and the current controversy surrounding the alleged shit hole comments.  Brian tried to solicit Dr. King’s support on his call to have Trump come out and “explain” himself for his mistake.  Dr. King shuts him down at 3:24 on the following video:  http://video.foxnews.com/v/5711712584001 .

———— 

I am sure if Ainsley ever reads this she will defend Brian to the max.  That is just who she is and we love her for it.  But, Brian and Fox News should know that many Fox and Friends viewers oftentimes fast forward through Brian’s comments and his poor attempt at humor.  His bully tactics are not appreciated and detract from the wonderful show.  I can honestly say that we love it when Brian writes a new book as we know there will be substitute guest hosts to take his place.  When Pete Hegseth fills in, we know we are in for a treat along with Ainsley and Steve.
