“Build the Wall” – Donald Trump is Not Playing Around

1071

When you take a step back from the day-to-day political drama that has been the last year and a half, it’s hard to believe that we’re actually seeing what we’re seeing. When Donald Trump promised back in June of 2015 to build a “great, great wall” across the Mexican border, did anyone seriously think we would see the fulfillment of that promise? Republicans have been promising to crack down on illegal immigration for decades. Surely this was just another pipe dream.

But here we are, and President Trump on Wednesday was expected to sign an executive order directing federal funds toward construction of that magnificent wall.

On Tuesday, Trump tweeted: “Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow. Among many other things, we will build the wall!”

Depending on the nature of the wall, it could take billions of dollars to complete – meaning Congress would have to authorize new funding for the project. However, NPR reports that there are already funds available to Trump if he wants to get the jump on construction:

“A law already exists that experts believe give him the authority to start building that wall,” NPR’s Tamara Keith reports on today’s Morning Edition. “It is the Secure Fence Act of 2006. It was bipartisan, it was overwhelmingly supported. That envisions both physical barriers and more of the high-tech stuff, like sensors and cameras.”

The 2006 law mentions a two-layer fence, Tamara says — but that fence was never built. Ten years later, the process could begin.

Of course, Trump’s ultimate plan – as we all know – is to make Mexico pay for the wall. As president, Trump may choose to confiscate remittances being sent from Mexican citizens living in the U.S. or correct the trade deficits our country currently has with our neighbors to the south. In the meantime, the money will come from tax dollars – meaning Trump will have to eventually get Congress on board.

With the way things are going, we have quite a bit of confidence in President Trump’s ability to do that. Six days into his presidency, Trump is already making good on many of the promises that brought him to the dance. While the media’s busy covering crowd sizes and vote tallies, Trump is building a road to a better American future.

Political realities being what they are, we should probably temper our optimism.

But to hell with that. Things are looking brighter for this country than they’ve looked in ages, and we’re going to enjoy the journey for as long as it lasts.

            Thanks very much for showing everyone what a pathetic idiot you are every time you post a comment, Moron.

          13. Mr Rollo says

            Stop sacking so many feces.

          15. AKLady says

            You need to take an anatomy class.

          16. TeaPartyPatriot says

            Recently I had a pain in my abdomen, so I went to the Dr. and he scheduled me for a colonoscopy. I did all the normal things like a total bowel cleansing (so I thought) and went in to let the Dr. do his thing. The Dr. put his scope in my rectum, looked around and then burst out laughing and snapped a picture. When it was printed out, low and behold there was AKlady holding onto a polyp in one hand and a safety pin in the other, screaming that her safe space had been invaded. The Dr. vacuumed her out and the pain went away just like magic.

          17. AKLady says

            Maybe you should write a book.

          18. ABO says

            She’s a typical liberal lemming. Why would you expect anything else?

          19. Lee Martinsen says

            NO You liberal A$$HAT, it’s MAGA not MANGEY YOU.

          20. AKLady says

            Does sewer language make you feel grown up and powerful?
            In actuality it makes you look ignorant and immature.

          21. tim says

            LOL HAHAHA…. AKlady …you a trip

          22. EBRM says

            Just piss off you stupid demorat. Maybe you are one of the illegals that overstayed your visa.

          23. Uzoozy says

            America would be glad to see language like that, I am sure you use similar language with your kids, that surely will make America great.

          24. Mr Rollo says

            Cut down on your feces diet. You are becoming unmanageable.

          25. Ken says says

            No – Sweet Pee – the Old Lady is an inbred local.

          26. Lee Martinsen says

            It’s not as bad as the sewage coming out of your mouth, or your supposed brain. You brain dead liberal fuckwads are just butt hurt, because Trump will drain the swamp, and you liberal drains on the economy will be forced to contribute. The free ride is gonna end BITCH. Does your fake anonymous name mean that your from Arkansas? So is your husband still your brother after he divorces your dumb ass?

          27. AKLady says

            AR is the U.S. Post Office code foe Arkansas.
            Suggest you educate yourself.
            Your ignorance is embarrassing America before the world.

          28. gerald Hughes says

            A liberal dem bloodsucker talking about ignorance is like a liberal talking abut parasites they are intimately familiar with both.
            Soon the country wall pass legislation making the adiding and abetting of the criminal aliens a federal felony, with mandatory 4 year prison sentence, with out possibility of parole, in other words no liberal judge will save you.
            Then we will see how badly you liberal dem bloodsucking scum, want to try to continue to bring illegal voters in, when it costs you 4 years in in jail and as convicted felons, lose your right to vote.

          29. Pat Hanson says

            Talk about blood sucking, about 2/3 of our taxes go to ‘entitlement programs’. This includes social security (earned), medicaid (half to us citizens, rest to illegals, immigrants) then there are food stamps, subsidized rents, subsidized education, subsidized or free medical—on and on. And not to be overlooked, California giving drivers licenses to illegals, so they can drive cars without insurance, AND VOTE. It should be decided exactly how much we can afford to spend on non-citizens. Those having green cards can stay with renewals checked on regular basis, criminals kicked out, then have LOTTERY for law abiding remainder illegals up to number we can afford to subsidize who will be given opportunity for work permits, familys not allowed.

          30. AKLady says

            Your ignorance embarrasses America.

          31. Lee Martinsen says

            You embarrass America, BITCH.

          32. AKLady says

            ..

          33. GODBlessRealAmerica says

            you are ignorant and low energy!

          34. AKLady says

            Blah, blah, blah, lie, insult …repeat ad nauseam.

            Tedious, boring, repetitive …

          35. Ken says says

            Lee had no problem nailing your location. I was surprised to hear about your divorce – that sure does present a dilemma. Clean your glasses so you can read the posts better and check your spelling too.

          36. AKLady says

            Except he was totally incorrect.

          37. Lee Martinsen says

            You and your Butt Puppets, Buhrok Osama, and Hitlary have already embarrassed America before the world.

          38. Mr Rollo says

            I keep telling the Wretch to cut down on the feces it’s eating. Pays no mind.

          39. Ken says says

            Hey Lee – don’t be so hard on the Old Lady – Sweet Pee is OK – she can’t hurt herself – the Home has padded her room so she can ride her broom there and not endanger the public. Cut her some slack – her program is somewhat limited since the Soros/Clinton funding is drying up so she will seem repetitious.

          40. Pat Hanson says

            Soros still has money to pay his ‘Disruptors’. There is a man (or close proximity thereof) who will spend his billions for evil until the day he dies.

          41. Ken says says

            and not soon enough – better yet – hijack him to Russia – they would love to have him on trial – several other Countries too.

          42. Joseph Vanchieri says

            Let Soros try once they arrest his ass. He funds and incites violence. He has tampered with the elections and needs to at least be indicted. Then freeze his assets.

          43. Bella Gray says

            And then his son will add his father’s 32 billion to his own billions and we will be in massive trouble. America needs to turn Soros over to Russia, who has a warrant out for his arrest. His son needs arrested for sedition and treason, and jailed or worse.

          44. Larry Bishop says

            Moron, AK is not Arkansas try AR

          45. Lee Martinsen says

            Eat it BITCH.

          46. John Somers says

            You have to understand, That’s all they teach in Demonut 101 because IT’s SO EASY.

          47. AKLady says

            Problem with your claim: It is the Republican states that have the highest levels of school dropouts. (Source: U.S. Census).
            The states with the highest income levels are Blue ( Associated Press).

          48. steppenfetchit says

            Hey, you changed yor avitar but your still pushing the same garbage.

          49. AKLady says

            “Your” is a personal pronoun.
            It is not a contraction for “you are”.
            Maybe you should educate yourself further before insulting others.

          50. steppenfetchit says

            Did you get the message? When you said you were from Arkansas I thought it best to do my part to make you feel at home. if you look farther toward the front of the message you’ll see another step back into your youth.

          51. AKLady says

            Why do you tell silly, childish lies?
            The U.S. Post Office code for Arkansas is AR.
            Why don’t you go over to the U.S. Post Office web site and educate yourself?

          52. steppenfetchit says

            They are only seen as lies to an infantile mind

          53. Savior says

            Try telling that to Madonna and Ashley Judd who’s talking sounds Anti-American, Free Speech or not, makes their bunch look and sound Ignorant & Immature….

          54. AKLady says

            I see, the someone else does it, so it is all right for me to do it excuse!
            Have you told Madonna and Ashley that sewer mouth is wrong?

          55. gerald Hughes says

            Maybe , but being stupid and a liberal parasitical makes you look like a liberal dem bloodsucker, kill yourself scumbag, you have nothing.

          56. Ken says says

            Hey Sweet Pee – you didn’t have to wonder what he what talking about did you

          57. AKLady says

            The gift of Make America HATE again.
            Where will the money come from?

          58. Jim says

            From the seizure of your drugs at the border that makes you so stupid and fuels your hate for America. Go back into your hole or basement !!!

          59. RonW says

            Hopefully, first they’ll use all of yours to buy a couple of burgers.

          60. AKLady says

            Your comment makes no sense; none, whatsoever.

          61. Independent American says

            The money will come from the massive savings we get from not supporting people who shouldn’t be here.

          62. AKLady says

            Those “savings” do not exist.
            The segment you wish to deport contributes over
            $8 billion the U.S. economy each year.
            Part of that contribution is the income taxes withheld from wages paid to workers using stolen Social Security Numbers.

          63. Brenda Sinclair says

            president trump only needs to end free food stamps free medicaid ,that will save billions and also put those who refused to work back to work..trump is offering new jobs, but who will fill those jobs?OFF WITH FREEBIES AND BACK TO AMERICAN WAY. BIBLE SAID HE THAT DOES NOT WORK THEN SHOULD NOT EAT

          64. David Cox says

            Amen It says ” if a man won’t work he shall not eat.” This applies to those who won’t work. It does not apply to those who can’t work.. Unfortunately there a far too many who refuse to do work because they have been taught to live off of the government
            that wants them to be dependent, that way they will do whatever they are told.

          65. Uzoozy says

            iT SHOULD COME FROM TRUMP ESTATE, He is reaping the crop right now

          66. steppenfetchit says

            Typical liberal answer. Take from an earner and give to a parasite. I hope you have stolen enough over your welfare years to move back home.

          67. ABO says

            I see you finally figured out that your caps lock was on. Aren’t you just brilliant.

          68. Mr Rollo says

            Stop reaping so many feces. Bad for your personal digestion.

          69. gerald Hughes says

            We will cheerfully pay more taxes to keep the criminal aliens out of our country scumbag, and we lock up a couple of million of you aiedrs and a bettors, maybe we will take it from you in fines.

          70. AKLady says

            What is an ” aiedrs”.?
            What are ” bettors”.

          71. gerald Hughes says

            Aiders and abbettors are the liberal dem bloodsuckers that we are going to put in jail for 4 years and them take their rights to vote because they are convicted felons, if you scum keep trying to help the criminal aliens.

          72. Bogart1950 says

          23. Lee Martinsen says

            For Bill 3000, I think it’s more about not having a brain, that he’s capable of using without the liberal media telling him how to think. Brain dead a$$hats don’t think for themselves.

            Wait a minute. Weren’t you supposed to be running these schools for the last 50 years. Why so many dropouts. Sounds like you just took the money and didn’t do your job. You are just another liberal crook .

          42. AKLady says

            More sewer mouth.
            Speaks to the right-wing limited vocabulary.
            Must be related to those school dropout numbers.

          43. Molly1776Pitcher says

            Actually, that’s Americans that voted for the witch are First of All: BRAIN DEAD!

          44. Lee Martinsen says

            It;s liberal, baby murdering, ass plunging, racist, anti Christian, muslime terrorist Loving, left wing Brain Dead piece of shit. Get the fuck over it snowflake, TRUMP IS PRESIDENT. Muslim Osama the terrorist, is DONE, he can inflict no more damage against our great country, well it will be great again SOON.

          45. Arthur Ittus says

            WTF is MANGEY?

          46. AKLady says

            All:MANGEY — maybe you should define that. Webster’s does not.

          47. gerald Hughes says

            Man you low life liberal dem bloodsucking parasites really, get upset with people that expect you work, earn and pay your own way, don’t you?

        3. Gloria D. says

          HE LL YES!!!!!

      2. BILL3000 says

        Yes,Rosech Levy:Essential to have “our concreted” on the job!!

      3. Pedro 9997 says

        Yes, Legal American workers and American Concrete. Love it, just love it. Finally
        someone who keeps his promises and is already making America great again and
        acting to remove the border sneaks

        1. skisok says

          His promise was that Mexico would pay for it. Then why are federal funds being released for the construction of a wall that will become a joke if not done right?

          1. Hal Carter says

            Because – he wants to start right away and he hasn’t negotiated trade deals with Mexico yet.

          2. RICHARD says

            mexico will get left in the dust. Nothing imported from mexico to America will put a hurt on them. We don’t need their nasty shit anyways. Americans need to buy American made only to ensure American jobs and boost our own economy. Let Trump handle this ,he knows what he is doing.

          3. Eric Pearson says

            Bullshit. He’s not qualified to make any of the decisions he’s made so far.

          4. truth says

            WANT TO BET.

          5. Molly1776Pitcher says

            Hillary. You lost, crawl back in your ‘pizza hole’.

          6. Lee Martinsen says

            REALLY? He’s not qualified? Who is qualified then? Buhrok Osama? Bill Clinton? Those brain dead TRAITORS had their chance, they made deals to benefit Mexico, probably to pad their own offshore accounts. Trump is the ONLY one qualified. Get over yourself snowflake.

          7. Hal Carter says

            His decisions have been spot on. Great job trying to keep Americans safe from terrorists and those that will not make good citizens, create jobs for Americans and stop the killing of babies. He’s doing better than what Hillary would have done.

          8. Ray says

            It would of been a Obama 3rd. Term with lying crooked Hillary, the criminal doing things. We would be hurting if she was President, because she had NO plan to fix our country. A complete disaster.

          9. Francisco Machado says

            Obama wasn’t, either. Did that stop him?

          10. Patty Parfait says

            And you’re qualified to make that assessment how, may I ask?

          11. John Somers says

            Uh Oh watch out aklady has a buddy. WOW. You can join her in the stuff We the PEOPLE are throwing away

          12. Daniel F. Melton says

            All the money wired to Mexico can be taxed or even stopped unless the payments are made on time.

          13. Hal Carter says

            Agree Richard. They’ll eventually agree after he puts the trade pressure on them.

          14. John Somers says

            Hell there are cities in Mexico who filed suit so that we wouldn’t send them back They DON’T WANT them back because they cause a “hardship” What a freakin laugh.

          15. AKLady says

            Not going to happen.
            America wants cheap goods.
            We have become a throw-away society.

          16. finaly had enough says

            How often do you buy made in Mexico? it is mostly fruit and veggies and I would rather pay a few dollars more and buy local.

          17. AKLady says

            If it is at all possible, I buy American,
            Living Alaska can make that a bit more difficult.

          18. Patty Parfait says

            “Not going to happen.”

            Isn’t that what you said about Donald Trump beating Defunct Hillary in the General Election for thr presidency of the U.S?

          19. AKLady says

            We the People did not elect Trump.
            Hillary received the majority of the Popular Vote.

          20. John Somers says

            She did that, She locked up all those registered in several States, The ILLEGALs and the NON-Citizens not to mention her favorite the CEMETERY VOTE . All in All about 3.1 million of them.

          21. AKLady says

            We the People do not elect a President.
            We the People have never elected a President.
            We the People cannot elect President — the Constitution does not permit us to do so.

            Suggest you learn how your government actually functions.

            Yeah…..cheap and throw-away like you !!!

          23. John Somers says

            SO that means we can just throw YOU away right ? DAMN I KNEW there was a silver lining here somewhere.

          24. skisok says

            What’s the old saying. Two birds in a bush… just don’t want to get stuck with the bill. This country is already in a lot of debt.

          25. Jan Heeter says

            Thanks to Obama this country is in debt. Obama’s last day in office he gave $221 million to the Palestinian’s before that Obama gave 2.6 Billion to Syrian Refugees that is the American tax dollars at work. That is why this country is in debt. There was very little debt when Bush left office. THANKS OBAMA ! ! 8 years of HELL ! !

          26. Francisco Machado says

            There’s 22,235,000 employees of government at some level as of October 2016. That’s 208,000 more than 2015. That’s a taxpayer paid employee for every fifteen citizens of the United States. That’s why we’re broke.

          27. finaly had enough says

            That is way too many… we have to have a large lay off… Trump knows how to identify dead wood and how to get rid of it. He comes from private industry where everybody know how to count…

          28. John Somers says

            THANK GOD, He has already put a freeze on hiring as a way to begin reducing the size of Government.

          29. Leonard Collings says

            And they all make more than the average wage plus unbelievable benefits. Most just sit around bitching that they have too much work to do.

          30. skisok says

            You know your full of it. Bush started this circle of debt. You dumbells conveniently forget the mess Bush got us into. He started the bank bailout when he should had let them fail. And speaking of outlays, we also give $2B annually to Egypt and Obama raised the stake to Israel before he left office from the typical $5B to $87B. I’m fir eliminating all foreign aid and put America first. I’d like to see Trump do that and no exceptions.

          31. Jan Heeter says

            I am not full of shit ! I totally agree Bush got us into this he was a snake in the grass. I also believe he was behind 911 What I was saying was our debt wasn’t as high as it is now . Obama has made it a lot worse. I am also for eliminating all foreign aid . ALL OF IT AND AMERICANS SHOULD COME FIRST. I THINK TRUMP WILL DO IT. WE WILL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE. PLEASE DON’T CALL ME A DUMBELL….YOU ARE KICKING A HORNET’S NEST YOU DON’T WANT TO KICK. NOW GO STRAP YOUR BIG BOY PANTS ON AND LEAVE ME ALONE….

          32. skisok says

            Oh did I touch a nerve little girl!

          33. Jan Heeter says

            Go back to your sand box. I am sure you are missed…

          34. skisok says

            Oh poor little girl, go home to your mommy.

          35. John Somers says

            When Obama took office the National Debt was 10.4 TRILLION Dollars.
            When He left it had just about DOUBLED, It’s now 20 TRILLION dollars
            THAT is the Legacy that numbskull left President Trump.

          36. Jan Heeter says

            I agree with you John. I believe Obama was a disgrace to this country of ours Now Trump has to try and clean up the mess Obama left.

          37. Molly1776Pitcher says

            Move to Chicago dimwit. They have the gun control you crave, they are not in debt, there is no murder, your criminal usurper hero and his god ‘Saul’ are from there and I am practicing to be a journalist for the MSM.

          38. John Somers says

            Yep, only 224 shootings and 44 dead and it’s not the end of January yet.
            Please go they need new and fresh targets.

          39. skisok says

            I’m staying put where I am. It’s just like right wing fanatics to try to force their will on Americans. You’re a piece of crap.

          40. Lee Martinsen says

            The saying is “a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush”. You liberal piece of garbage. This country is so deep in debt by 8 years of Osama, and liberal asshats like you.

          41. skisok says

            STFU asshole. You can’t speak without insulting anyone. You right wing fanatic asshole.

          42. fishinjunki says

            STUPID, Brain Dead ASSPlunging fuckwads like you don’t know anything but insults.You Liberal, baby murdering degenerate, faggot fucking, Lying stealing, cheating, lazy mother fuckers on welfare are, and have been a drain on civilized society for decades.Donald Trump is proving to be THE BEST PRESIDENT America has EVER had. He will not cowtow to Islam, Mexico, Russia,China, N. Korea, or anyone else for that matter. Americans can stand tall with a great leader like The Donald.

          43. Dale says

            Please re-read this: As president, Trump may choose to confiscate remittances being sent from Mexican citizens living in the U.S. or correct the trade deficits our country currently has with our neighbors to the south.

          44. Molly1776Pitcher says

            You pal and your libtard zombies are the real fools because the ‘jokes on you’,

          45. skisok says

            You’re a terrible f***. You know that? Please don’t come into me anymore.

          46. Lee Martinsen says

            And they WILL pay for it, but it takes time. I think the wall should be made out of Mexican concrete, by Mexicans, on their soil. We should just build watch towers, and shoot anything that moves on our side.

          47. Dale says

            Pleased re-read this: As president, Trump may choose to confiscate remittances being sent from Mexican citizens living in the U.S. or correct the trade deficits our country currently has with our neighbors to the south.

          48. Francisco Machado says

            If we are no longer paying the upkeep for the foreign nationals and they are returned to Mexico, Mexico is paying for the wall by default.

          49. finaly had enough says

            You are right…

          50. John Somers says

            True BUT the problem is, MEXICO DOESN’T WANT THEM EITHER/

          51. finaly had enough says

            Give a man at least 5 more days on the job… and they will pay… there are many ways to get them to pay…
            one, easy way is to tax all the remittance brought to be sent to Mexico by people who live and work here illegally…say like by about 40%. You do know that Mexican government has the billions of $$$ sent from USA as part of their yearly state budget…
            Another, easy one is to send back all the criminals they sent here. Let them keep those in their jails at their expense.
            Yet another one is to stop construction of new manufacturing plants in Mexico (which he already started and they are not liking too much)
            Next sent all the people who are currently getting financial assistance in our country back. The savings will justify part of the cost of the wall.
            Give them back all the dreamers we are paying to educate in our schools, colleges and universities and send them a bill.
            Deliver goods from Mexico to our country by our drivers in our trucks.
            Stop all financial aid to Mexico.
            There is more… but I think this ought to do for phase one…
            $$$ 5-6 billion cost– do some math.

          52. greenlantern1 says

            How about taxing cons who sell fake condos in Baja, Mexico?
            How about taxing Trump?

          53. skisok says

            Where is the plan. It needs to be presented before we bite. As a business man, I don’t agree with “trust me honey”. Show me how what it’s going to cost, how it’s going to financed, how it’s to be built to ensure that it works and when will it be done. I’m through with politicians saying don’t worry it will get paid from another source. I’d rather see the money well spent on our infrastructure to better the flow of commerce and to make folks more mobile. That will pay dividends.

          54. Patty Parfait says

            Good grief … which is more important. Get that wall up! The plans are already there … No matter if the Mecican government pays directly or indirectly or we save by not subsidizing illegal’s stays here … The wall goes up but the national debt does not. Case solved.

          55. greenlantern1 says

            When Mexican bandit, Pancho Villa, murdered Americans; President Woodrow Wilson did NOT commission a wall!
            He dispatched General Pershing in pursuit!
            General Patton was his aide!
            What did generals IKE and Patton do to Hitler’s ATLANTIC WALL?
            What did Joshua do to the walls of Jericho?

          56. Bernadette says

            Mexico will pay for the wall by losing it’s free trade agreement that doesn’t return anything to the USA. Trump will probably renegotiate it. Federal funds are being used sorta like a loan so they can start on the wall sooner.

          57. greenlantern1 says

            Remember the hiring freeze?
            Who is going to build the wall??

          58. John Somers says

            No loan, those funds are already allocated for the construction, They passed the Congress back in 2001 I believe with a (of all things) TOTAL Bi-Partisan SUPPORT.

          59. skisok says

            I don’t like loans. They may never be paid back. I like a bird in the hand.

          60. John Somers says

            Those funds were allocated years ago and still in play to get a jump start on construction. Besides it MUST be o.k. because the democrats were 100% FOR IT.

      4. greenlantern1 says

        Like “American” Army handguns?

      5. AKLady says

        Government contract go to the lowest bidder.
        To profit from that bid poor quality materials will be use, as well as, illegal immigrant labor.

        1. Lee Martinsen says

          Sorry, you piece of shit, that’s how Dumbocraps do things. Trump will choose the best bid, not necessarily the cheapest. Cheaper is rarely better. You degenerates need to get a fucking life, or get the fuck out of MY country. Get your fat ugly ass back to Mexico.

          1. AKLady says

            Presidents who break the law are impeached.
            You ignoramuses need to get an education,
            Save you sewer mouth for impressing other ignorant fools.

        2. finaly had enough says

          Not with Trump it will not… he is a builder, remember? He understands timelines, budgets, loans and carrying costs…and of course quality of construction.

          1. greenlantern1 says

            Like in Baja, Mexico?

          2. AKLady says

            THE LAW REQUIRES Government contracts to go to the lowest bidder

    2. Craig Vandertie says

      Yes, but of what nation will those people be citizens of, it does not matter if jobs are outsource or immigrants U.S. citizens are left without jobs.

      1. jgfsmf says

        Why would they be outsourced? The United States will build the wall and Americans will do the work…….the we get the money back from Mexico.

        1. greenlantern1 says

          Was the building, of Trump Taj Mahal, outsourced?
          Did it ever have a wall?

          1. finaly had enough says

            Does it matter? As much as all of us looking at his tax returns… not at all

          2. greenlantern1 says

            Does the murder, of Ambassador Stevens and his bodyguards, matter?
            Thanks to Loretta Lynch, and her DOJ, Ahmed Abu Khattala is in custody!
            The charges?
            The murders at Benghazi!
            Will the Trump “justice” department press those murder charges?
            An Egyptian court has already tried, convicted and sentenced to death Pastor [?] Terry Jones for his involvement!
            Which party BLOCKED his deportation?

          3. finaly had enough says

            And you think that Trump’s DOJ department will be less aggressive with terrorists of any kind then corrupted Loretta Lynch? or that he would be more understanding and tolerant of the terrorist’s plight then our last president?
            What are you drinking?
            … and Trump’s tax returns are somehow relevant to this opinion of yours
            I really did think I heard it all by now…

          4. greenlantern1 says

            Rush Limbaugh CLAIMS to have stand down cables.
            Where are they?
            Why didn’t he show them to Trey Gowdy?
            Ever hear of Nixon’s “hard hat” riot in New York City?
            70 Americans, including 4 policemen, were hurt in that!
            Ever hear of fellow Americans Ray Kot, Sunnil Rattu and Martin Caballero?
            They were murdered at Trump Taj Mahal!
            Care to calculate the homicide rate in square feet?
            Isn’t Trump a friend of Putin?
            That terrorist??

          5. finaly had enough says

            Loretta Lynch and her DOJ???
            There is no time to make a list of all the things that were unacceptable about her, DOJ, State Department,, our foreign policy, former Administration together with the former (Thank G-D) President and all the nonsense they said and did in the last 8 years…
            Now that we have a president with a brain, love for the country instead of the party and a desire to fix things as opposed to drive us all apart by race, color, gender, country of origin, religion etc…a President who for a change cares about American families, American values (real not invented and borrowed), American security..
            I suggest we give him a chance..
            If you still cannot live with the loss (Stronger Together…) I suggest you see a professional about it and not a tax account.

        2. Craig Vandertie says

          The Mexican government has already stated no way Jose, Mexico is not willingly going to pay for the building of a wall between them and us, unless the U.S. government threatens to ban all U.S. citizens from vacationing there and charging those who do with a Federal offense.

          The only way you can compel Mexico to pay for a wall to prevent their citizens from coming into the U.S. illegally is turning their economy topsy turvy, it was made clear that all those people Mexico allow to sneak across the border into the U.S. they do not want, simply put the Mexican government consider them a major liability and would rather those people leave.

          1. jgfsmf says

            Yeah. You’re right. The Mexican president said no to paying for the wall. But you see. There’s trade between us and Mexico, and where there’s trade, there’s money to be made. Do you think the Mexicans are going to be okay with no more imports from Mexico to the US?

          2. Craig Vandertie says

            No rational patriot U.S. citizen would care about what those of the Mexican government think.

          3. jgfsmf says

            I like you Craig. Thanks for your posts.

        3. greenlantern1 says

          Forget the hiring freeze?

          1. jgfsmf says

            The hiring freeze is for federal employment, not for private business.

    3. AKLady says

      Try to remember walls keep people in. as well as out.
      Trumps is already attacking the Constitution.

      1. Jim says

        You had better get out then before the wall is completed. We do not want to keep anyone here who hates America like you do. Adios MF

      2. jgfsmf says

        First off, there’s this thing about walls. Doors can be put into walls. Secondly, how is Trump attacking the constitution? By getting rid of the second amendment? No wait. That was Obama. By not letting ILLEGALS into our country? No. That’s actually a law. How exactly is he attacking the constitution?

        1. AKLady says

          Doors, ha, ha, ha. Legal entry points currently exist.
          Your rant about doors in rather foolish.

          Donald Trump ran on a platform of relentless, thoroughgoing rejection of the Constitution itself, and its underlying principle of democratic self-government and individual rights.

          He has repeatedly attacked the First Amendment rights. i.e., freedom of the press and freedom of religion.

          He has repeatedly attaced the Fourth Amendment freedom from “unreasonable searches and seizures”

          Then there is his attack on the Sixth Amendment and Fourteenth Amendments rights to legal counsel.

          On top of that add his attack upon birthright citizenship provided by the 14th Amendment.

          1. jgfsmf says

            Oh geez lady. Yeah. There are points of entry and there are points where entering is illegal but still happens. Hence a wall to keep people from entering ILLEGALLY.

            As to all the rest of your blabbering. Every single thing you wrote is OBAMA! Trump hasn’t touched our freedom of religion, has touched freedom of the press, hasn’t touch the anchor babies. Your intelligence just dropped a hundred points by blaming all that on Trump.

            Oh, and just in case you didn’t know. He’s only been president for a week and he’s still not going to take away our rights.

          2. AKLady says

            Islam is a religion. His condemnation of people based on that religion is not a 1st Amendment violation? Just how do you arrive at that conclusion?
            .
            There are 1.6 billion Muslims. The majority of them are citizens of nations which are America’s allies.

          3. jgfsmf says

            It’s not Islam that he’s stopping from coming into the country. It’s muslims who are radical islamists who he wants to stop. He’s not going to stop anyone from practice their religion, unless it a religion that kill citizens. A bit of a difference there.

          4. AKLady says

            Americans killing church congregations.
            America – the KKK murders (they are now international terrorists).

          5. jgfsmf says

            Wow. Ancient history. That really affects us now. NOT! You must be in love with a radical islamist.

          6. AKLady says

            Nothing ancient about:

            Army of God
            Eastern Lightning
            Church of the Almighty God
            Lord’s Resistance Army
            Central African Republic Catholic murdering of those who won’t convert …
            The National Liberation Front of Tripura
            The Phineas Priesthood
            The Concerned Christians

            Nothing ancient about:
            Americans killing physicians and bombing medical clinics.
            Americans killing church congregations.
            America – the KKK murders (they are now international terrorists).

            Nothing ancient about America’s prisons that are full so-called Christians.

          7. jgfsmf says

            KKK=democrats. Your relatives?

          8. AKLady says

            Your history education is lacking.
            The KKK was founded by Confederate Generals.
            The issue was racism, not politics.

          9. jgfsmf says

            And they were DEMOCRATS. Duh!

        2. AKLady says

          The Constitution gives the President the right to pardon federal crimes.
          (Article II, Section 2)

          1. jgfsmf says

            And……..? What does this have to do with Trump? How many federal crimes has Trump pardoned? Obama, yes, he’s the idiot that let the real criminals out.

          2. AKLady says

            Apparently, you are not aware of the law that required anyone charged with a third felony be sentenced to life in prison. The crime itself had no bearing on the sentence.

            Many of the people being released were convicted of crimes laws which have been repealed entirely, or reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor.

            You also seem unaware that the U.S. is running huge budget deficits and has a mounting federal debt.

          3. jgfsmf says

            And how many criminals did Trump release?

          4. TinyFingeredVulgarian says

            He doesn’t release them; he hires them.

          5. jgfsmf says

            How many has he hired since he’s been President?

          6. jgfsmf says

            Check this out. And you’ll think, how dare he put the rights of US citizens before the rights of the illegals.

            http://www.libertyheadlines.com/trump-civil-rights-us-citizens-illegal-aliens/

            So, is that against the constitution?

          7. AKLady says

            Everyone within the United States, or its territories,
            is covered by the U.S. Constitution.

            The 5th and 6th Amendments require that criminal charges be filed, an attorney appointed for the accused if they cannot afford to hire one, and that a trial take place.

            An individual caught in the act of unlawful entry can be immediately turned back.

          8. jgfsmf says

            Bhahahahaha. Why don’t you have all those ILLEGALS who are criminals move in with you since you care about them so much? Then you can protect them from everything. And you can pay for their attorney. And you can take them to court.

            Illegal – against the law.

          9. AKLady says

            My taxes pay for the attorney.
            The Constitution requires the heating.
            .
            If you do not like America’s Constitution, I suggest you move somewhere else. Today would not be too soon.

          10. jgfsmf says

            Illegal=against the law.
            Illegal immigrants=here unlawfully.
            Donald Trump=President of the United States
            Not your President? I suggest you move away. You don’t want to move? Then act like an American. You still haven’t States anything that President Trump did that is against the constitution.

          11. AKLady says

            His banning immigrants from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen is illegal, has been illegal for over 50 years. The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 banned all discrimination against immigrants on the basis of national origin.

            The order violates the 1st Amendment Establishment clause
            and the 1st Amendment Due Process clause

            The order is unconstitutional — period.

            If you do not like America’s Constitution, I suggest you move somewhere else. Today would not be too soon.

          12. jgfsmf says

            It’s only temporary until we can better bet them. So therefore, NOT ILLEGAL. I know you love these people and want to sleep with everyone, but until we know they are not coming in to kill us, stupid people like you included, they are not coming in. Now take you hateful unAmerican a$$ and you leave the country if you cannot accept President Trump as our president.

          13. AKLady says

            Trump has violated the Constitution.
            Three of his illegal rulings are before the Supreme Court.
            Two Federal Judges have already blocked parts of his Executive Orders.
            There has been two impeachment petitions filed with the House.

          14. jgfsmf says

            Oh I bet you were Janey on the spot to sign those petitions. Maybe someday you’ll actually act like an American. Stand for the National Anthem, respect the flag. And once you respect the position of president and who is in the office, you will get respect yourself.

          15. jgfsmf says

            Here’s some learning for you……

            The U.S. Visa Waiver Program allows people from nearly 40 countries
            around the world to enter the United States without a visa as long as
            the visit is scheduled for less than 90 days. In the wake of the San
            Bernardino terrorist attack, President Obama signed legislation that
            eliminated that special privilege for anyone who had visited Iran, Iraq,
            Syria, or Sudan for the past five years. Two months later, the Obama
            administration added three more countries to the list: Libya, Yemen, and
            Somalia.

            Amazing how it’s okay for your loverboy Obama but not for President Trump.

          16. AKLady says

            Save your insults for someone you can impress with your ignorance and bigotry.

          17. jgfsmf says

            What insult? Oh, that Obama is your loverboy? Yeah, that is pretty insulting. Or is the insult the truth that Obama started this whole thing? Can’t handle the truth like all liberals.

          18. AKLady says

            Staerted what “whole thing”?
            Save your infantile sexual insults for someone you can impress with your ignorance and bigotry.

            Great copy paste work there. Maybe you can get a job doing that. Most normal people make sure there is a space between every comma and the next word, but you aren’t normal people, are you?

          22. jgfsmf says

            So much for you constitutional knowledge.

          23. AKLady says

            Maybe ypu should do some research before running your mouth:
            The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965
            First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

      3. jgfsmf says

        So much for your constitutional knowledge

        1. AKLady says

          I refer you to the 1st Amendment.
          I also refer you to The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965

            Learn a little.

          2. AKLady says

            Maybe you should have read it?

          3. jgfsmf says

            I guess you won’t. Don’t forget. Obama started this whole thing.

    4. Brenda Sinclair says

      alot more jobs created for constructions companies in texas, will end food stamps and free medicaid that will help build the wall too many lazy people perfer food stamps over working

    5. TeaPartyPatriot says

      I’d Like to see an Arpio style Tent city erected next to the end of the wall and all the illegal aliens that are given hearings held in this tent city until a judge can hear thier arguments. while in the tent city give them tortillas and beans to eat. My wife’s family survived for years on that diet in Mexico. IF they want meat and vegetables they have to work on the wall. We get a wall built at minimal cost and the illegals learn they will no longer get something for nothing.

    6. greenlantern1 says

      More jobs
      With a hiring freeze

      1. jgfsmf says

        There is no hiring freeze in private businesses. We can find contractors and worker to building the wall. hence, more jobs.

        1. greenlantern1 says

          Who “awards” the contracts??

          1. jgfsmf says

            The government. They don’t need to hire someone new to put out contracts. They already have someone.

  2. 4ever49 says

    Well, finally, maybe someone is actually doing something about those sneaking in. Its a start.

    1. AKLady says

      Ha, ha, ha…
      The majority of “illegal” immigrants arrived in America quite legally.
      They entered with a visa and simply never left.
      The impoverished, brown-skinned, First Americans make an easy, highly visible target./

      1. 4ever49 says

        Ok, I’ll widen my definition of “sneaking in” to include visa skippers.

        1. AKLady says

          Most “visa skippers” enter the U.S. on employment visas, i.e., an employer swears that no American has the expertise to fill the job. You don’t hear Trump talking about those illegals, do you? Oh and by the way, Trump Tower was built by illegal Polish workers. The men were putting in 12-hour shifts with inadequate safety equipment at subpar wages that their contractor paid sporadically, if at all.

          1. Rummy C says

            Hillary won the popular vote.

            We the People do not elect a President.
            We the People have never elected a President.
            We the People cannot elect President – the Constitution does not permit us to do so.

            Suggest you learn how your government actually functions.
            Start with the Electoral College.
            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electoral_College_(United_States)

          12. Bogart1950 says

            Our fore fathers, (you do know who they were right?) Put in the college so that states would all have their fair share for voting.(Ex. RI, Mont, SD,ND,ETC) they would be worthless votes if not for the college.. That`s why they placed a system that would gave all states a say.. win 270 votes, you win.. NOW , Clinton won the vote, BUT, She beat trump, in CAL, by 4.2 million votes.. Other wise TRUMP won by 2 million. The bigger win was Not the college, BUT the # of counties Trump won nation wide..3183 counties make up the USA ( not counting PR,nor other us territories).. TRUMP won over 3000 of them ..3000! your girl won 57! Take out LA,AND SF and she might have lost CAL.. then their is the 7 in NY..the other 47 counties in Ny went to TRUMP.. the Electoral college did what the CONSTITUTION says it was to do.. make even playing field…Next time, Tell Lying Hillary to campaign in more than 6 states and more than twice a week.. she was a bad choice! Sanders( who we all know was cheated out by your loving girl) would have put up a better fight.. Ps I`m born and raised in NY, Family there since 1742.. lot longer than yours..I`m sure!..

          13. Bogart1950 says

            I only spend a hr on here so sorry for late reply.. hope I was able to help you out on that Clinton problem you have?

          14. AKLady says

            “Our fore fathers”
            You cannot write English correctly and you have the nerve to preach government to others? Save your ignorant, childish insults for someone you can impress.
            Which of those stats of yours accounts for the Electors who voted for Sanders, Kasich, Paul, Powell and Spotted Eagle???
            Well, let’s see, part of my mother’s forefathers were living here about 40,000 years ago. My father’s ancestors came about 1621.

            So, I was going to just laugh at your posting and leave it alone…But, I have to know? Your mother “forefathers” we`re Viking`s?..No 40,000 years ago we`re before then..cave women? and your father ? came over on the Mayflower or what? 1st or 2nd trip? I was feeling sorry for you with the 2 dead husbands.. But I find it hard to believe you now.. Both, buried in VA? must have been hero`s? you just make this up don`t you…Now you know it is a fine and jail time to lie about Army records !! so if you could just give me 1 lot # I won`t call you out on it anymore..fair enough?

            I keep reading your posts…..doing a great job!That is for me and some. Too bad more do not believe more than one side of the story. Check up there, above this, where Lee Martinson has a nervous breakdown over Hillary. Seems like Hillary must still be a threat to him. I may not and do not agree with a lot of people regarding politics, but it seems those who hate with such vigor really have a problem for anyone to have another opinion and immediately start the name calling. Good to see you are carrying on!!

            Thank you.
            You also work very hard at the same goals.
            You have my total support. Don’t give up.

          28. socialsavvy says

            This week with the Trump has been mind boggling, thinking of what could be done if all happens as it might. The foreign relations could ruin what has been worked for years. Then as far as the domestic situation, seems that depends upon our foreign connections to a great extent. How can we have peace when so many of our American citizens hate other American citizens because they have a different opinion about a few or many items.

            When watching the French news tonight a woman who is a handwriting analyst expert was interviewed regarding her analysis of Donald J. Trump’s signature. It seems his character and behavior is a most serious thing to consider. I’ll find out more later and let you know. I realize that it is not a true science, but since the studies of this has been going on for a century or more, some validity must exist.

          29. AKLady says

            Trump’s slogan is actually ‘Make America Hate Again’.
            The DOJ has names him in 180 discrimination lawsuits.
            He settles. pays a fine and goes right back to business as usual.

          30. socialsavvy says

            This past week has been a week of horrors. What do you think about the new way to get around lies by trump………”Alternative facts”. So far Trump has not taken responsibility for anything that is not to his glory. He certainly posses the most fragile ego on earth. That is not good.

          31. AKLady says

            Fact? Trump does not know the meaning of the word. He is a habitual liar Problem, he cannot remember from one thing to the next. Hence, frequently contradicts himself. He is also the big bully in the neighborhood.

            Simply pot the wannabe dictator need a keeper.

          38. Mr Rollo says

            I am a conservative Republican – all my life. I am a capitalist. I served 4 years full time in the U.S. military. I worked full time – white collar for about 53 years. I voted for President Trump. Now – – who are you and what are you?

          39. socialsavvy says

            I am a registered Democrat, who had previously had been a Republican. I believe that social programs are essential to the continued growth and well being of our nation. I am a college graduate/ plus. I worked 27 years as a civil servant, (social worker). I did not vote democrat nor republican this time and choose to to support another individual. It mattered not whom I voted for as this state I reside in, had all delegates pledged to this republican candidate. I actually never vote down the party lines, as I choose individuals and issues. Having been a social worker I understand many of the issues of the unfortunately poor. I do not support all of the so called liberal agenda, but I do not set out to destroy people because of their choices. I am a capitalist as much as any one else who receives socialized security and medicare.
            My opinion of Donald Trump is not without serious consideration. I did not like him as a television icon and never watched more than 10 minutes of his program on TV.

            I really doubt I am communist. Calling me a pig is something a military gentleman should never stoop to do. If you don’t like me, that is your right, and guess what!!!???? It does not make one bit of difference to me, whatsoever!

          40. Mr Rollo says

            communist pigs.

          41. socialsavvy says

            At least you gave me a title before calling me a pig. Politics are to be argued for a reason. Not only does one expand their knowledge of reasons, but hearing the “other side”, so often compromises are worked out that are much better. Name calling is for 12 to 14 year old boys when they do not know anything else to say. I did notice that you do not want anyone to know what your opinions and thoughts are as you keep your posts history private. Are they all like the one above?

          42. Mr Rollo says

            Your posts are a load of communist Crap. I am NOT interested in the communist, fascist, or any other leftist side. Your only objective is to enslave the populace with your corruption.

          43. socialsavvy says

            THAT IS what YOU say! And who are you? A zero no doubt or you would not hide!

          44. 4ever49 says

            And you know about use of Polish workers — how?

            What’s your opinion regarding EB-5?

          45. AKLady says

            The Polish workers were cheated out of wages.
            The resulting legal case is public information.
            I approve of EB-5. Immigrants going into business for themselves is a well-know fact. They make jobs.

          46. 4ever49 says

            So if the Polish workers were “cheated” out of wages, didn’t a court case rectify the matter, & was the case against Trump or a contractor that actually did the work?

            As to EB-5, given an opportunity to do business utilizing the program I declined because I found it full of legal pitfalls, unreliable State Department oversight and that it was very much a “buy your way in” for foreign nationals. One of the law firms active in EB-5 was populated by Iranians which I found very troubling.

            Far from “uneducated” and speak from experience.

          51. AKLady says

            Sorry, foolish one, the buck stopped with Trump.
            You are responsible for overseeing the work of people you hire.
            …”populated by Iranians”, now you discriminate by race. How did you determine they were of Iranian decent?

          52. Craig Vandertie says

            Yes lady, I am sure that CEOs personally oversee the work of every last employee, when dealing with routine operations of major Development companies CEOs cannot be expected to supervise every aspect of the business, not enough hours in the day.

          53. AKLady says

            Ha, ha, ha …
            Trump is a glorified real estate salesman.
            He sells his name — it is a brand.
            When you are CEO, the buck stops with you.
            DOJ has sued Trump for discrimination 180 times.

          56. Craig Vandertie says

            Are permits not required to operate a business?, is it not illegal to issue business licenses to those who are not legal citizens?, rhetorical question.

          57. AKLady says

            United States v. Trump, New York, 1973
            There is no ban on issuing business licenses to noncitizens.
            Many immigrants own businesses.

          58. Craig Vandertie says

            Perfect example of Executive and Legislative negligence, do you realize all the legal negotiating that has to be worked out before U.S. corporations are granted permission to build factories in foreign nations, what they pay said nation upfront, just is not fair that with it is for U.S. citizens to compete with multinational corporations besides having to compete with businesses owned by non-U.S. citizens, non-U.S. citizens should not be allowed to own land for businesses, lease maybe.

          59. AKLady says

            Prime examples of your invalid assumptions and failure to do adequate research.

          60. Craig Vandertie says

            EB-5?

            Until my discussion with my baby brother yesterday evening I had heard about the allegations of Mr. Trump employing illegals, and something about him not paying them, what I was unaware of was that they were Polish citizens here illegally, 1 would think Europeans would be intelligent enough to put themself in a position where their employer could abuse them and get away with it.

            Again, 1 cannot rely on the source since those sources are so unreliable.

          61. 4ever49 says

            EB-5 is a program allowing foreign investors to gain access to US citizenship by investing in job producing ventures here. I believe the minimum investment is $500,000. The number of jobs to be produced is also prescribed but I’m not up to date on all the other requirements.

            Secret military installation of dish antennas in AK completely surrounded by s fence, closed circuit television cameras all around, guards constant patrol the perimeter, interviews of those with residents within a 100 mi. radius and irrefutable scientific research indicates waves emitted from antennas puts certain thoughts in the heads of residents, tell me again who is brainwashed.

            You mean freaks like Ronald Reagan?
            He gave amnesty to illegals.

          5. Patty Parfait says

            Bill Clinton screwed around on Hillary. JFK did the same to Jackie O. So does that mean all Democratic Presidents screw around?
            Look, since one Republican, under very different circumstances with illegals (mostly Mexicans were given amnesty by Reagan and up until noon, January 20, 2017, Obama and his demolition crew were letting in people from countries that would rather see us dead than convert to their barbaric religion) provided amnesty, then all Republicans should blindly follow? Jimmy Carter (Dem)banned Iranians from coming in … Teddy Roosevelt (Progressive) did his own brand of banning muslim immigrants as well.

          6. AKLady says

            Who gives a damn about a President’s sex life?
            Reagan cheated on his wife. What exactly is your point?

            Lair….

          8. ABO says

            Ah, yet more fabrication from our resident lying sack of shit.

          9. AKLady says

            President Jimmy Carter announced sanctions against Iran in 1980, including the cancellation of visas for Iranian citizens.

            Carter’s sanctions are not equivalent to Donald Trump’s suggestion that Muslims be banned from entering or immigrating to the U.S.

          10. LMW51 says

            Except….President Trump never suggested a permanent ban on Muslims entering or immigrating to the U.S. …..he suggested and just implemented a TEMPORARY ban…..you sure are good at pointing out only a portion of the story….

          11. AKLady says

            Regardless of the status, any religious ban violates the U.S. Constitution. Trump’s proposed actions in regard to Muslims are no different than Hitler’s actions against Jews.

            Carter’s ban involved act of war, not religion. Between November 1979 and April 1980, 14,768 Iranians (2,204 were students) were removed from the Country.
            .
            HUGE difference. One ban is based on nationality.
            The other is based upon religion, and illegal under the Constitution..

          12. AKLady says

            Under Roosevelt and Taft, the deportation issue was polygamy, not religion.
            Historically, polygamy has always been the issue, not religion.
            Marriages which took place legally in the individuals country of origin are not subject to U.S. law.

          13. Craig Vandertie says

            Really, then why were the Mormons not thrown out of the country?

          14. AKLady says

            They were polygamists.

          15. LMW51 says

            Finish the story……Because the Congress agreed to secure the border – which they never actually did….

          16. AKLady says

            Congress makes the laws, not Presidents.
            Had Reagan not signed the law, Congress would have over-ruled him.
            Nothing in the Simpson–Mazzoli Act related to border security. On the other hand, it made unlawful to hire illegal immigrants and required employers to document the status of their employees. It legalized agriculture workers

          17. disqus_2HJyL9vcD3 says

            Yes, yes. With every concession made to the left the country gets in deeper and deeper.

          18. AKLady says

            Reagan’s 288% debt increase did not involve “concession made to the left.
            It was all the government jobs he created, the supply side economics which had been repeatedly proven a failure .

          19. Craig Vandertie says

            Compared to the debt Obama left the nation in that is a pittance.

          20. AKLady says

            You are comparing apples to oranges, a popular right-wing habit.
            The only way to measure debt by President is to sum up all of is budget deficits.
            Debt and deficit are two very different issues. Debt is cumulative.

            Obama’s budgets included the economic stimulus package. It added $787 billion by cutting taxes, extending unemployment benefits, and funding job-creating public works projects.
            Obama added 68%

            George W. Bush added the second greatest amount to the debt, at $5.849 trillion. But that was a 101 percent increase to the debt

            President Roosevelt increased the debt the most percentage-wise. — 1,048%
            Woodrow Wilson — 727%

          21. Craig Vandertie says

            Barack Osama certainly tried, how unfortunate for him Congress said nay.

          22. AKLady says

            I suggest you go back and look at the facts again.

          23. ABO says

            Now there’s an idea!

          24. AKLady says

            That is exactly what ‘Saint’ Reagan did.

          25. Patty Parfait says

            Well St. Jimmy Carter banned all Iranians as well as kicked thousands out of college and sent these legal aliens home as

            http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/melanie-hunter/gary-bauer-teddy-roosevelt-banned-muslims-jimmy-carter-banned-iranians

            One other question … since it is virtually impossible to vet the good from the bad, per officials in the Obama administration, how do you think the situation with Reagan is remotely anything like the situation we’re in now with middle eastern immigrants?

          26. LMW51 says

            To answer your question, AKLady would have to tell the whole story…something she neglects to do with every post she makes….

          27. Bogart1950 says

            Don’t worry your little head about all of that…..President Trump (I know those are probably trigger words for you right now, but….I like to deal in facts and reality…) is able to lead from the front and delegate, both have been in his job description for decades…..

          7. LMW51 says

            And former President Obama was going to impose martial law so that he could stay in office…..

          8. AKLady says

            Why do you need to tell this lie?
            Why do you embarrass America this way?
            Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?
            Why do you believe it is acceptable to repeat lies?

          9. disqus_2HJyL9vcD3 says

            Should that arise any time soon, it’s very comforting to know we’ll be MUCH better prepared under Trump than the ineptitude of Democratic ‘leadership’, an oxymoron if ever there was one.

          10. AKLady says

            Just how do you plan on paying for it?
            Bush borrowed money from China for his two wars.

          11. disqus_2HJyL9vcD3 says

            IT hasn’t happened, so I’m not too concerned about “paying for it”. Do you ever stop to think about the long term cost of not doing anything? Wars have been a part of the human experience ever since man discovered his opposable thumbs, and I don’t recall one ever NOT happening because of a budget or lack thereof.

          12. mac12sam12 says

            Hillary is the war hawk that voted for Iraq, a war that Trump was against.

          13. AKLady says

            That is history. Trump had already insulted many of America’s allies. He has pulled us out of trade agreements. His nationality and religious bans …

          14. AKLady says

            You would not recognize r eality if it walked up and slapped you in the face. You are tightly wrapped in fantasy insulation of your own creation.

          15. Craig Vandertie says

            I am not going to list names, but some are of the opinion that describing Mr. Trump as a successful business man is major malarkey, claims made that he is billions of dollars in debt, I certainly do not believe that, I am only repeating what I have heard.

            My point being many are saying he is completely ignorant in regards to running the nation, again I do not agree with that opinion.

          16. Mr Rollo says

            America will be very soon dealing with Freaks like you ! ! !

          17. AKLady says

            Trump has already tried to violate the Constitution three times.

          18. LMW51 says

          19. ABO says

          20. Craig Vandertie says

            Considering there is no truth or integrity of the press they should be restricted from government meetings.

            A biased press is a dishonest press, spin doctors.

          21. AKLady says

            Obviously, you disagree with the facts.
            Oh, well …

          22. mac12sam12 says

            Name the three things. Making up facts again?

          23. AKLady says

            Let’s see, there is his violation of an anti-corruption provision in the Constitution.

            A bank controlled by the Chinese government, for example, rents office space in Trump Tower. The Embassy of Kuwait reportedly moved an event from the Four Seasons hotel to a hotel owned by Trump “after members of the Trump Organization pressured the ambassador to hold the event at the hotel owned by the president-elect.”

            Trump has not made a clean break with his business ownership interests. His refusal/failure to divest his sprawling network of business holdings put him in direct violation of the U.S. Constitution. Trump maintains that conflict of interest restrictions don’t apply to U.S. presidents.

            Trump’s ‘extreme vetting’ order violates the Constitution. Trump’s overseas interests violate the Constitution. Trump’s Muslim ban violates the Constitution. residential towers in Turkey and two real estate projects in Indonesia. The president also holds at least $1 billion in debt, much of it to foreign entities.

            Breaking with longstanding presidential tradition, Trump has refused to release his tax returns.

            Hundreds of thousands of Americans have signed a petition to impeach Trump for violating the constitution over business interests.

            I think we all know who the idiot really is as Uzoozy proves every time he sits down at the keyboard

          26. Craig Vandertie says

            Are you sure that is not sits down on his keyboard?

          27. ABO says

            Actually Craig, you have probably got that right.

          You know, ever since I blocked AKLady, my blood pressure has dropped. Try it. She is just another insane democrap troll.

          2. Mr Rollo says

            How did you escape the asylum for the brainless Insane?

          3. AKLady says

            Insanity requires a brain.
            Maybe you should try some facts for a change.

          4. Craig Vandertie says

            But 1 whose mind is controlled can be mentally unstable, describes you and Carol perfectly.

          5. AKLady says

            Do you ever have anything of value to add to a conversation?

          6. Craig Vandertie says

            Is that not a contradiction of terms?, mind controlled insane is more likely, besides I am certain that AKL and Carol being as mind controlled as they are, are both thinking at this moment, what a childish comment to make.

          7. Mr Rollo says

            I like to emphasize. You like to criticize. Have fun with your single brain cell.

          8. Mr Rollo says

            Actually, now that we kicked Hillary’s and people like AK’s azzes, I enjoy reading her nonsense on here. It provides for great comic relief, and it doesn’t bother me a bit!

          17. Carol Smith says

            Hillary kicked ur as when she lost to an unfit, inexperienced narcissist who knows nothing about running a country.the joke is on u.

          18. Craig Vandertie says

            Oh yes Killary is experienced in committing crimes she and Slick Willy have been hard at it since the days of when they were into Federal politics in AR especially while Willy was governor of AR.

          19. Angry American says

            I think they took time off during his presidency maybe, maybe not, if they did they sure made up for time off. Up until she lost the vote in the election, now they are begging for donations. What the 100’s of millions are not enough for them? Does their greed have no cap on it, just how much would be enough for these two?

          20. Angry American says

            Yeah like obama did or for that matter after 8 years still hasn’t the foggiest, ggodbye & good riddance to that pos

            You find truth and fact to be nonsense?
            No wonder the U.S. has fallen so far behind.

          29. AKLady says

            Actually, it was the 8 Bush years.
            When Obama took office, America had been dropping roughly 1 million jobs each month for almost a year.

          30. jgfsmf says

            Oh of course. Blame Bush. That’s all you got? Pity.

            Oh my God. Take off the Obama rose colored glasses. See the real world.

            You are so not kidding.

          33. AKLady says

            Take off your political blinders and look at actual facts.
            Go back and add up the Bush era deficit spending.
            There were two wars, costing roughly $1 million per day, each AND income tax reduction for the rich.

          34. jgfsmf says

            And yet, your dreamboy made more of a deficit than Bush. But that’s okay right? Because you love him. You wish you were Michelle.

          35. AKLady says

            Congress makes the laws.
            Congress spends the money.
            You elect Congress,
            It is time you take responsibility for your actions,

          36. jgfsmf says

            Bhahahahahaha. We’ve got republicans in the majority. I TAKE RESPONSIBILITY! I am happy that things will get done the right way now.

            You can keep writing it, but it doesn’t do you any good. The president has every right to temporarily ban your lovers. What would you do if one who has already gotten through killed your family? Still be his lover?

          39. AKLady says

            Adolescent male sexual preoccupation, so childish.
            Try to develop some maturity.

          40. jgfsmf says

            I’m a woman, idiot. I get it now. You voted for Hillary because she’s a woman only. Not for what she could do for this country. I guess you don’t have a mind of your own.

          41. AKLady says

            What does your biological sex have to do with it?

          42. jgfsmf says

            Oh, I guess nothing. You must be the one with the “adolescent male sexual preoccupation” that is so childish. My bad. I thought your were a woman, but I guess I got that wrong. I’m pretty sure you’re not a man either. Hmmmmm. I don’t know what to think about you. Oh wait. I don’t have to think about you. Later!

            Thank you.

            Oh good. I am so glad you now finally see the truth. I know how hard that is for a liberal.

          47. jgfsmf says

            I must apologize. I know how the truth can hurt people like you. I’m sorry.

          48. AKLady says

            Yes, you are sorry — very sorry.
            Thank you for admitting it.

          49. jgfsmf says

            You’re welcome. I will really try not show you how much more intelligent I am than you from here on out. It’ll be hard, but I will try.

          50. jgfsmf says

            I am really sorry. It must have hurt you that I am so much more intelligent than you. So for that, I’m sorry.

          54. AKLady says

            Maybe you should read what you write.
            A policy is something a President does.

          55. gerald Hughes says

            You can always tell when a liberal dem bloodsucking parasite runs out of anything to say, but, feels compelled to talk, anyway, out comes, “Bush did it” or, “you’re a racist”

            That woman should be locked away in a dark cell with all the other Decommiecrat zombies and their Decommiecrat masters.

          61. greenlantern1 says

            Remember when Attorney-General Janet Reno ENFORCED our immigration laws?
            Remember the Elian Gonzales case?
            Where was Trump?
            Ever read the autobiography, NEVER AGAIN, by Bush Attorney-General John Ashcroft?
            He, not Janet Reno nor Eric Holder, gave the order to RESCUE llegals!
            Where was Trump?

          62. AKLady says

            Elian’s Miami relatives argued if the boy went back to Cuba, he would become a brainwashed trophy for Castro in his long-running feud with the U.S.
            That is exactly what Elian has become.
            Do you remember the photograph of the terrified child with the assault rifle pointed at him? He was turns into Castro’s publicity tool.

          63. Mr Rollo says

            I do not think Mr. Trump was President Trump at the time. He was managing his real estate, and other asset holdings, in order to grow them to pay for his future campaign without bankrupting the citizenry. That’s where he “was”. Guess where he is now. LOL ! ! ! M A G A ! ! ! President Trump 2016 – 2024 ! ! !

            Persecution based on nationality — Trump.

            Make Germany great again — Hitler
            Make America great again — Trump.

            Our nation’s voters elected a lying, unstable, unqualified, egomaniacal racist and misogynistic candidate as the 45th president of the United States. Trump won because he inspired folks through his overtly racist messages, assuaging their fears by promising to return “their” country to them.

            Akl is smart, that is why u do not like her. She deals in facts, not rumors and radical right wing sites.

          85. Patty Parfait says

            Akl is a trolling idealog (think she got paid for the schlock she was posting?) who deals in rumor and opinion and steeps herself in radical left wing news and sites. Who knows, she probably get a thrill up her leg when she watches Chris Mathews on MSNBC. You’ll find very few sources for any of her ridiculous, or debunked statements. Like you, she’s a troll. My guess she became ineffective and blocked by serious posters on this site so she was replaced. So, as a word of friendly advice, source your posts. You’ll be amazed how facts can start a conversation and made up or debunked stories just make one look like a trolling pain on the ass like your buddy, Akl. To source this post, just go back and check out AKLady’s ludicrous posts.

          86. AKLady says

            Prove it, liar.

          87. Craig Vandertie says

            Considering you are of a very small minority the burden of proof is on you, since none of your sources are reliable good luck with the task ahead.

          88. Craig Vandertie says

            Carol is on George Soros’s payroll as well, she is as irrational and unreasonable as AKLady, you are wasting your time trying to come to an understanding with her.

          92. AKLady says

            Anyone who post facts you do not like is a troll.
            Name calling is the admission that you have no facts to offer.
            Name calling is an admission that you lack the intellectual capacity to enter

            More baby talk.
            Maybe you should try harder at the adult part.

          96. disqus_2HJyL9vcD3 says

            Adult liberals are very much like children, without the endearing aspect.

          97. AKLady says

            Oh, so you admit being a liberal.

          98. disqus_2HJyL9vcD3 says

            Ooooh…aren’t you clever! All your practice at ‘spin doctoring’ is finally paying off! A few more of those zingers and you’ll no doubt be promoted…from imbecile to moron. You’ll be a rock star to your fellow leftist loons.

        5. Carol Smith says

          U have no idea how much it would cost in manpower and dollars to find them.

          1. steppenfetchit says

            Well Carol we’ll just use the Obama approach. First we take the manpower from the phony jobs created data that he used, that should give us about 4 million searchers. Next we just keep printing money with no backing. Instead of giving it an impressive name like quantitative easing we’ll just call it what it really is play money. But the liberals will still not know the difference and will accept it as payment for finding illegals. Problem solved.

          2. AKLady says

            Congress makes the laws.
            Congress spends the money.
            .
            You need to learn how your government functions

          3. LMW51 says

            BUT you forgot to list the most important part of the process – perhaps deliberately or perhaps showing you don’t know quite as much as you think you do, the President has to sign the laws in order for the money to be spent…..or use an executive order to bypass the Congress…..

          4. ABO says

            The last being Obama’s favorite game.

          5. AKLady says

            You are incorrect. Please take the time to learn how your government functions.

            If Congress is in session, the bill becomes law after ten days without the president’s signature.

            Congress can pass a bill to nullify an executive order. The President could veto the bill, forcing a two-thirds vote by the House and Senate to override the veto.

          6. Craig Vandertie says

            You need to consult with a Civics professor when it comes to how things work in government you are about as ignorant as anyone could possibly be.

          7. AKLady says

            You could have saved yourself embarrassment by using your Internet connection to check facts, I assure you I did. Now be a good little boy, go educate yourself,

          10. mac12sam12 says

            And who gets the final signature? Maybe you should learn how your government functions.

          11. AKLady says

            Congress can override a Presidential veto.
            Maybe you should learn how your government functions.

        Over staying a visa without renewing it is breaking the law ,except for the ACLU and people like you.

        1. Craig Vandertie says

          Inject microchips in those people allowing you to track them once their Work Visa expires go and get them, allow no grace period you do that they will try to evade capture depending on how efficiently those tracking chips work you may not be able to tell the currently legal from those whose Work Visa has expired.

          1. Retired says

            The US had a system in place where legal Immigrants had to register every Jan.. Once that was dropped the Illegals and Visa overstay became the Problem. Most visa overstay was thank to our upper education system telling them how to stay in the country.

            That is when Federal funding including grants should have been cut off.

          3. Retired says

            If the federal gov. would stop all grants for a few years the debt would go down. the same should go for pet projects attached to bills in order to get them passed.

          4. Craig Vandertie says

            That appears to be sound reasoning to me.

          5. Ellen says

            Or corrupt politicians who are for the ILLEGALS so they win the election every year. Limit terms and remove them from office. They can then support the ILLEGALS on their dime. See how many ILLEGALS they would then support. Once it hurts their pocketbooks and no more term, for sure these ILLEGALS would not mean anything to them then.

          6. J.B.Jacobs says

            When the people with work Visa’s quit the jobs they are working on or the time has expired on their Visa’s have the empolyer call ICE and tell them.

            Eventually those microchips will be used on you and I. It’s easy to say you should do this to prevent immigrants from entering this country illegally but the minute they use it on us to prevent us from travelling abroad you’ll be crying and whining about YOUR rights.

            In 2015, Mexicans sent back to their families “in MEXICO” 42 billion in Money orders .That’s a fact..ck it if you want to.. that’s what the problem is.. they paid no taxes..I realise that most Muslims are NOT going up to AK.. so maybe if you really tried to see the B picture, down here in the real world you might understand better.. And Reagan NEVER cheated on his wife.. your crazy…their was never a man more devoted to a wife than Reagan .. Unlike Bill Clinton or Kennedy! How far are you from a man? sounds like you need one..

          6. AKLady says

            Depending on which right-wing garbage site you frequent, that amount has been stretched up to as much as $120 billion. So much for your “fact”.

            Every worker has taxes deducted from their pay. Mot all immigrants are employed under the table. No all Mexicans are illegals.

            “Muslims not going to Alaska” Ha, ha, ha, — more documented ignorance on your part. Where do you think the majority of Muslims live?

            Guess what, it is not the Middle East. Alaska has many foreign workers, they come to work in the Fish and Seafood Industry. They are from places like Indonesia and the Philippians. many are Muslims.

            Dear Saint Reagan did many things. He cheated on two wives, not just one. He also increased America’s debt by 288%.

            Oh, and ignorant, foolish one, no woman ever “needs” a man.
            Relationships that last for decades are partnerships.

            I’ve buried three husbands, all of whom died as a result of their service to America. Two were KIA Vietnam and are buried in Arlington. The third died this past year. We celebrated 30 years of marriage.

            If they are earning money in the U.S., they are living in the U.S.
            Illegals purchase food, clothing , shelter, medical care, transportation ….

            Wikipedia? Come on now….you can do some actual research all on your own can’t you? Citing source after source (which you likely haven’t even read) that repeat the same basic article over and over again is NOT research.

            “When considering the economics of immigration, there are three related but distinct issues that should not be confused. First, immigration makes the U.S. economy (GDP) larger. However, by itself a larger economy is not a benefit to native-born Americans. Though the immigrants themselves benefit, there is no body of research indicating that immigration substantially increases the per-capita GDP or income of natives. Second, there is the fiscal impact — taxes paid by immigrants minus the costs they create for government. There is general agreement that less-educated, lower-income immigrants are a net fiscal drain; and more-educated, higher-income immigrants are a net fiscal benefit.”Third, there is immigration’s effect on the wages and employment opportunities of native-born workers. Basic economic theory predicts that immigration should create a net gain for natives, but to do so it redistributes income from workers in competition with immigrants to workers not in competition and to owners of capital. Theory also predicts that the size of the net gain will be tiny relative to the size of the economy and the size of the redistribution. Because the least educated and poorest Americans are the most likely to be in competition with immigrants, they tend to be the biggest losers from immigration.

            Putting aside economic theory, the last 13 years have witnessed an extraordinary situation in the U.S. labor market — all of the employment gains have gone to immigrant workers.

            The Fiscal and Economic Impact of Immigration on the United States By Steven A. Camarota May 2013

            The advantages of illegal migration tend mostly to be on the side of the employer. An employer will benefit from the illegal status of a migrant who is desperate for work and therefore prepared to accept poor pay, usually below local norms. Hiring an illegal worker also brings the employer the advantage of paying less in the way of welfare contributions and other non-wage costs.

            CBO Reports:

            State and local governments incur costs for providing services to unauthorized immigrants and have limited options for avoiding or minimizing those costs;
            Again….
            The amount that state and local governments spend on services for unauthorized immigrants represents a small percentage of the total amount spent by those governments to provide such services to residents in their jurisdictions;

            The tax revenues that unauthorized immigrants generate for state and local governments do not offset the total cost of services provided to citizens, the impact is modest, and most do not qualify for them;

            Federal aid programs offer resources to state and local governments that provide services to unauthorized immigrants, but those funds do not fully cover the costs of necessities.

            George Borjas , the nation’s leading immigration economist “This contribution to the aggregate economy, however, does not measure the net benefit to the native-born population.” This is because 97.8 percent of the increase in GDP goes to the immigrants themselves in the form of wages and benefits.

            THOSE ILLEGALS PAY THE SAME TAXES YOU DO.

Because the least educated and poorest Americans are the most likely to be in competition with immigrants, they tend to be the biggest losers from immigration.

            Putting aside economic theory, the last 13 years have witnessed an extraordinary situation in the U.S. labor market — all of the employment gains have gone to immigrant workers.

            The Fiscal and Economic Impact of Immigration on the United States By Steven A. Camarota May 2013

            The advantages of illegal migration tend mostly to be on the side of the employer. An employer will benefit from the illegal status of a migrant who is desperate for work and therefore prepared to accept poor pay, usually below local norms. Hiring an illegal worker also brings the employer the advantage of paying less in the way of welfare contributions and other non-wage costs.

            CBO Reports:

            State and local governments incur costs for providing services to unauthorized immigrants and have limited options for avoiding or minimizing those costs;

            The amount that state and local governments spend on services for unauthorized immigrants represents a small percentage of the total amount spent by those governments to provide such services to residents in their jurisdictions;

            The tax revenues that unauthorized immigrants generate for state and local governments do not offset the total cost of services provided to citizens, the impact is modest, and most do not qualify for them;

            Federal aid programs offer resources to state and local governments that provide services to unauthorized immigrants, but those funds do not fully cover the costs of necessities.

            George Borjas , the nation’s leading immigration economist “This contribution to the aggregate economy, however, does not measure the net benefit to the native-born population.” This is because 97.8 percent of the increase in GDP goes to the immigrants themselves in the form of wages and benefits.

            Would not deducted taxes have to apply to an employee, now how would that look if there was no SSN attached to said worker, or as is often the case multiple people with the same SSN, so do not peddle that nonsense of taxes being paid for illegal aliens.

          45. AKLady says

            Your assumptions are the only nonsense involved.

            How many milliin workers are there in the U.S.?
            Do you really think Uncle Sam actually monitors what money comes from where, under what TIN or SSN?
            .
            The only idocy being peddled here is yours.

          46. Patty Parfait says

            Amen

          47. GODBlessRealAmerica says

            Deport liberals, thugs, progressives, Soros and Democrackheads 2017!

          48. AKLady says

            If you despise the Constitution that much, why don’t you find somewhere else to live, and move there. Today would not be too soon.

          49. ABO says

            And just where would we find “rality” Is it on your home planetAKLoony???

          50. Lexus RX says

            Oh that’s perfect!

          51. Bogart1950 says

            Obama gave that much too middle east to BUY Jets from RUSSIA.. look that one up AK.. (ps start with JORDAN and go East, north, and south)..

          52. AKLady says

            Middle East covers a lot of area. Geography does not buy weapons.

            Obviously, you do not know which nations are American allies. Here is a short list to start your education: Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Uzbekistan, Bahrain, Myanmar, Azerbaijan, Ethiopia, Vietnam, Tajikistan, Rwanda, Cambodia, Honduras, Uganda, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Kyrgyzstan, Kenya, Rwanda, Djibouti, Morocco, Kazakhstan and Turkey.

            Please stop insulting our allies. Our servicemen may again need their help.

          53. Roger Long says

            You need a lesson in geography. Some of those countries you listed are not mid eastern. Most of them are African & Asian. Some of them may claim to be our allies but stab us in the back daily.

          54. AKLady says

            I provided a list of American allies.
            Do you dispute the countries I listed are allies?

          55. Bogart1950 says

            You think Vietnam is in Middle EAST? Cambodia?Honduras? Lady, your just a stupid old women that has no Idea what your talking about…And I’m a Vietnam vet 70-71 Don`t try and say anything about our servicemen…you are not one..so just take that AND SHUT UP..YOU OLD FOOL! THEIR IS NO REASON FOR ANY OF THE SHIT YOU POST!! Your like a bag of rocks….

          56. AKLady says

            Child, you need to increase your reading comprehension.
            The list is of American allies, in which Islam is the dominant religion.

          57. Bogart1950 says

            First, miss know it all.. half those countries are friends of Obama (exam,Saudi Arabia, we just file a lawsuit against them for 9-11, with 18 out of the 19 being from there..Obama vetoed it, Congress over rode it) The rest we gave money to them, doesn`t make them our friends..But you went right by what I said… we gave them $ to buy jets from RUSSIA and that’s my point.. LOOK that up !!! ps that was a nice trip around the world,.. unless you think these all our in middle east? Again you find yourself behind in conversation.. keep up AK, keep up..

          58. AKLady says

            Your ignorance is amazing.

            The bin Laden and Bush families have been very close for decades. The bin Laden’s funded two of Baby Bush’s failed businesses. Salem bin Laden was Bush’s partner in Arbusto Energy.

            Given?? Are you daft? Iranian funds held since 1979 were returned to their rightful owners. Iran has a very profitable oil business. It has not need for “gifts” to buy anything. America has a near 50 year loan. The funds were a weapons purchase deposit made by the Shah, just be fore he was deposed.
            Saudi Arabia has been America’s ally since 1933.

          59. Craig Vandertie says

            We have no true friends in the Middle East, John Edward calling AKLady, are you with us AKLady.

          60. AKLady says

            In your opinion.

            Please stop insulting our allies. Our servicemen may again need their help

          61. Craig Vandertie says

            They only our allies to feeble minded brainwashed people like yourself.

          62. AKLady says

            The U.S, Government decides which countries are our allies,.
            They don’t ask for your opinion.

          63. AKLady says

            Blah, blah, blah, lie, insult …repeat ad nauseam.
            Tedious, boring, repetitive …

          64. Uzoozy says

            Plus the other 8 billion being grabbed by the duck

          66. Mr Rollo says

            Time for you to take up residence in Venezuela to visit the glories of communism.

          67. ABO says

            Sounds like a fine place for Uzoozy the Moron to call home.

          68. LMW51 says

            Sources please for your GDP drops $8 billion claim. Otherwise, you comment is an “alternative fact”.

          69. AKLady says

            According to the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, a non-partisan research group, Illegals pay about $11.64 billion a year in state and local taxes.

          70. AKLady says

            Economic activity produced by illegal immigrant spending employs about 5% of the total US workforce. ([Illegal Immigrants’ State & Local Tax Contributions], Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy. Released February 24, 2016.).

          71. AKLady says

            As consumers, illegal immigrants buy goods and services, which stimulates economic growth, while paying taxes and receiving minimal benefits (Adding Up the Billions in Tax Dollars Paid by Illegal Immigrants”. AmericanImmigrationCouncil.org. 2016-04-16. Retrieved 2016-10-27.)

          72. AKLady says

            Nearly every dollar earned by illegal immigrants is spent immediately, and the average wage for US citizens is $10.25/hour with an average of 34 hours per week. This means that approximately 8 million US jobs are dependent upon economic activity produced by illegal immigrant activities within the US

          73. Craig Vandertie says

            Again, John Edward calling AKLady, are you with us AKLady, you are completely full of crap saying the average wage, maybe west of the Rockies, the northern Atlantic states, and New England every place else you can deduct $3- $4, the gulf coast states even fare better than the upper midwest and from VA down to FL, not because average wage is better, but because they pay little in Sales tax, considering those who file for bankruptcy are not required by law to liquidate extravagant estates to pay their debts I doubt property tax is that high in latter mentioned states.

          74. AKLady says

            I provided sources — valid sources.
            Use then to educate yourself.

          75. Patty Parfait says

            Proof please

          76. ABO says

            Please don’t hold your breath, Patty. AKLoony doesn’t believe in verifying her little stories. We’re just supposed to buy it all.

          77. LMW51 says

            Still waiting on that sourcing for your claim …….

          78. AKLady says

            Too lazy to look up facts, as is your usual.

          79. Craig Vandertie says

            Damn!, just when I thought you could not spew anymore crap than you have already, not just a Civics expert, but an Economics expert as well.

          80. AKLady says

            Yes, sir, that us what comes with a good education.
            You learn how to do research …
            Maybe, you should try it sometime?
