Liberal Activists Help Harvey Victims…As Long As They Aren’t White

2180

There is apparently no pause button when it comes to identity politics. Even in the midst of a national disaster, those who profit from keeping America divided into little groups and categories just keep on keeping on.

For proof, see the Women’s March, which has taken their successful march in Washington at the start of the year and turned themselves into an ongoing organization for left-wing causes. On Wednesday, organizers sent out a tweet asking people to donate to victims of Hurricane Harvey, but apparently they only care about how non-whites were affected by the tragedy.

“Here’s a list of orgs working to keep immigrant, Black, Latinx & other communities safe after Hurricane Harvey,” the organization tweeted. They included a link to an online article designed to help people find charities that provide aid to “communities of color in Houston.”

As unseemly as that was, Muslim activist Linda Sarsour – herself a major Women’s March organizer – went the group one better by committing outright fraud in the name of hurricane donations. Sarsour requested that her followers donate to the Harvey Hurricane Relief Fund, which sounds like the kind of charity one would want to give their hard-earned money to at a time like this. Unfortunately, it’s a sham. When you peel back the cover on this front organization, you see it has little or nothing to do with actual disaster relief.

From the official website:

Together we will organize and advocate for our devastated communities, shining a spotlight on inequalities that emerge in the restoration of lives, livelihoods, and homes, amplifying the needs of hard-hit communities, and providing legal assistance for residents wrongfully denied government support.

So it’s immediately obvious that this charity has nothing to do with providing water, food, or shelter to those in desperate need from this hurricane. The money raised will go to the Texas Organizing Project Education Fund, which is a charity dedicated to advancing “racial and economic justice” through community organizing. Meaning, ultimately, that it has nothing to do with the hurricane at all, and is simply a political organization dedicated to more of the racially divisive nonsense that we’ve seen all too much of in recent years.

As much as this stuff makes our blood boil, it is, in the end, a good thing. It’s a good thing that these leftists can’t even keep their racism at bay in the face of a tragedy like this, because it will finally expose them as the dividers that they are. Identity politics have no place in America in 2017, and they certainly have no place in disaster relief. By playing this game at this time, when so many millions of people are suffering, Linda Sarsour, the Women’s March, and other opportunistic race-baiters may have finally overplayed their hand.

    Ok, the words Muslim Activist says it all-she is a traitor to the country that allows her to denigrate America while enjoying ALL the perks. She would be dead if she was really a muslim woman living in the Middle East. Sarsour needs to be investigated and Shut Down immediately by Homeland Security or the FBI. She is the organizer of the so-called Women’s March where looney lefties and hollyweirdos ranted and protested against the government, and our president in particular-the whole event misnamed as something FOR women. Disgusting muslim traitor.

        Muslim Book Store

        So, I was walking downtown and I saw that there was a “Muslim Book Store.” I was wondering what exactly was in a Muslim book store, so I went in.

        As I was wandering around taking a look, the clerk gave me the stink eye but asked if he could help me. I imagine I didn’t look like his normal clientele, so I asked, “Do you have a copy of Donald Trump’s book on his U.S. immigration policy regarding Muslims and illegal aliens?”

        The clerk said, “Kiss my a$$, get out, and stay out!”

        I said, “Yes, that’s the one. Do you have it in paperback?”

          I want that book too, now I’m over to Amazon and try to find it. That sounds like it should be required reading at all colleges and university. When I find it I’ll send all of America the ISBN number.

      Little Thelma comes home from first grade and tells her father that they learned about the history of Valentine’s Day.

      “Since Valentine’s Day is for a Christian saint and we’re Jewish,” she asks, “Will God get mad at me for giving someone a valentine?

      Thelma’s father thinks a bit then says “No, I don’t think God would get mad. Who do you want to give a valentine to?”

      “The whole Isis group,” she says.

      “Why them,” her father asks in shock?

      “Well,” she says, “I thought that if a little American Jewish girl could have enough love to give them a valentine, they might start to think that maybe we’re not all bad, and maybe start loving people a little bit. And if other kids saw what I did and then they sent valentines to them, they’d love everyone a lot. And then they’d start going all over the place telling everyone how much they loved them and how they didn’t hate anyone anymore.”

      Her father’s heart swells and he looks at his daughter with new found pride. “Thelma, that’s the most wonderful thing I’ve ever heard. ”

      “I know,” Thelma says, “and once that gets them out in the open, the Marines could blow the shiit out of them.”

          Your bigotry and hate embarrasses and insults everything our Founders fought and died for.

          1. Sharon Jeanguenat says

            No, YOU’RE the bigot! Muslims only have 1 goal~kill all infidels. And, an infidel is anybody that hasn’t converted to Islam. And there’s NO hatred against these people. We just believe in calling a spade a spade. The truth hurts sometimes. And, I have a suggestion. Go live in a Muslim country for a while, & compare it to America. Then in 30 days let us know which country is best!

          2. AKLady says

            Islam has been part of America since before we became a Nation.
            The first to die in our Revolution was a Muslim — Crispus Attucks.
            The first country to recognize our Nation was Muslim — Morocco.
            Our longest ally is also a Muslim nation — Morocco, 225 years.

            The American History class you failed.

            Here are a few more of America’s historic Muslims: Yarrow Mamout, Estevanico, Norsereddin, “Hi Jolly”, Abdulrahman Ibrahim Ibn Sori, Ayuba Suleiman Diallo, Omar Ibn Said, Bampett Muhammad, Yusuf Ben Ali, And Peter Buckminster.

            Here is a short list of current American Muslim contributors: Fazlur Rahman Khan, Shahid Khan, Ayub Ommaya, Ernest Hamwi, Shaquille O’Neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Farah Pandith, Ahmed Zewail, and Aziz Ansari

            Religious bigotry is un-American. Our Founders fought and died for religious freedom. You insult their sacrifices.

          7. bkeyes71@yahoo.com says

            I am not insulting them, I just don’t want any Muslims in my country so if you are one and no doubt you are please leave, you are not welcome here.

          8. AKLady says

            It is not YOUR country. It belongs to all Americans.

          11. hank says

            Preach your bs their is nothing in the Constitution about letting or liking Isis or people like them who want to kill us. If you don’t like that go back where you came from.

          12. AKLady says

            ISIS is a terror organization, not a religion.

          13. Retired says

            But you and your King Obozo support them .

          14. hank says

            Doesn’t matter what they are you defend them they are Muslim ya know.

          15. AKLady says

            the KKK is a Christian, men’s organization.
            They are terrorists.
            Do you damn them for being Christians?

          16. hank says

            Are you really that dumb? Nobody supports the KKK they aren’t Christians and neither are you. I don’t see you condemning BLM, ANTIFA they are all POS!! Those are the groups disgusting big mouths like you support, I am sure while collecting government benefits.

          17. AKLady says

            More insults, I am so impressed.
            You are more interested in hate than what is actually going on around you.
            For example, there has been over 13 earthquakes in Idaho today.
            Of course, there are about 200 a day in Alaska.

          18. hank says

            God you’re pathetic! I don’t have time to sit around watching TV or reading a newspaper some of us work for a living. You know the benefits you get don’t just appear the rest of us have to work, pay their taxes you pathetic pos! Maybe you should get a job then you would have less time to quote things that have nothing to do with anything here. You’re a bigot who is always on here spewing stupid s**t that doesn’t even apply get a life or a job loser.

          19. AKLady says

            Rude, immature, uneducated, poorly-infored person, one of these days, after you have saved enough money, you can retire. Jealousy does not become you.

            It’s a OLD goat and you know what Muslims do with them before slaughter .

          22. Joey says

            Your ignorance of the founding of the KKK is astonishing considering you are such a know it all.
            The KKK was founded by a confederate officer of the Democratic Party. No Christian involvement period.
            You’re certainly spinning yourself quite a hangmans noose.
            A bit of good history would behoove you.

          23. AKLady says

            Ignorant, Yankee, know-it-all, typically known as a know-nothing.

          24. Joey says

            Lol!!!!!!
            Wrong again fluffy!

          25. Conservatism Is Cancer says

            Everyone in the KKK is Christian and right-wing.

          26. hank says

            Like you know

          27. Conservatism Is Cancer says

            They say so themselves.

          28. hank says

            You may have heard some say that but I doubt you have heard all of them say that. Regardless they are all awful people.

          29. Conservatism Is Cancer says

            It’s their whole platform.

          30. hank says

            Believe what you want I really don’t care. A few people don’t speak for all and many don’t have any religious affiliation they just get thrown in with the rest of them.

          31. Conservatism Is Cancer says

            A few? It’s their whole ideology.

          32. hank says

            Is that all you can say I don’t agree and I don’t care what you think. They are not Christians.

          33. Conservatism Is Cancer says

            Go ask them yourself.

          34. hank says

            I don’t need to I know they aren’t.

          35. Conservatism Is Cancer says

            Obviously you don’t know, because they disagree.

          36. hank says

            No obviously you don’t know, god doesn’t cross their minds.

          37. Conservatism Is Cancer says

            Why do they say they are Christian?

          38. hank says

            You have someone speaking for all. The people in those groups join for other reasons they don’t care that if some are Christians or not. Just because someone says they’re something doesn’t mean they are. Why don’t you get off it already. THEY ARE IN NO WAY CHRISTIAN!! That’s not why they’re in it to begin with and wouldn’t know a Christian if it bit them.

          39. Conservatism Is Cancer says

            It’s part of their platform. You’re are probably Christians so don’t want them to be, it doesn’t change the facts though.

          40. hank says

            Just because someone says they are Christian doesn’t mean they are. I’m sure there are many videos of them saying it. But as all you liberals say it was probably edited like the planned parenthood videos of them selling body parts. I think maybe you’re a member.

          41. hank says

            That’s also not their whole platform, their whole platform is they hate anyone who isn’t white. You know like liberals hate anyone who doesn’t agree with them. Just because someone calls themselves a Christian doesn’t make them one. What about that don’t you understand?

          42. Richard says

            And the Democratic party was the KKK in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. They believed in segregation because they believed Blacks were inferior.

          43. AKLady says

            So there are many Christian terror groups, what is your point?
            Do you even have one besides religious bigotry?

          44. hank says

            You’re the bigot and there are many Muslim terror groups so whats your point? It must suck to be so brainwashed you can’t even think anymore. Bigot fits you very well.

          45. AKLady says

            Currently active Christian terror groups: The Army of God, Eastern Lightening, The Church of the Almighty God, The Church of the Gospel’s Kingdom, The Lord’s Resistance Army, The National Liberation Front of Tripura, the Phineas Priesthood, The Concerned Christians, The Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland, Maronite Christian militias, The Covenant, The Sword, the Arm of the Lord, Defensive Action, the Montana Freemen

          51. AKLady says

            You have it backwards.
            Some Muslims belong to ISIS.
            Not all Muslims are terrorists.
            Some Muslims are Americans serving in our military.
            They lay down their lives to protect you.

          52. hank says

            Don’t preach to me about the military my family has served for generations so morons like you who shoot off your mouth and burns flags can do it. You fu***** loser. I also know not all Muslims are bad but I know all of Isis is Muslim and many leave this country to join them or kill people here. You are a sad pathetic loser who likes to pretend they know something. I don’t think anyone on here has ever agreed with you.

            Apparently, you have never served America in her military.

          82. AKLady says

            Since you are doing the name-calling, you must be both liberal and very immature. Thank you for making that very clear for everyone.

          83. hank says

            You’re right one calling names how many people have you called a racist or a bigot? You are a lying hypocritical liberal. I have never been a liberal or voted for anyone like Obama like you did. I do think you have a mental disorder or you’re 12 not sure which.

          84. AKLady says

            Racism and bigotry are behaviors — socially unacceptable behaviors.
            Your immaturity is displayed very well in your posts.

          85. hank says

            No you’re name calling, you liberals try and twist everything. Calling someone a racist or a bigot just like being stupid is a behavior but it’s still name calling. You’re a pathetic human being who is extremely immature, learn to practice what you preach. I don’t think you have ever made a comment on here that anyone has ever agreed with.

          86. AKLady says

            I suggest you increase your language comprehension.
            Until then, save the childish insults for someone you can impress.

            Spare me your stupidity. You’re the one with the childish insults get a life.

            Upholding the constitution doesn’t mean inciting riots and promoting hatred. Our founding fathers believed in the “one true God” and fully understanding tynarry and the need to control the populace fought hard to protect this country from the evil they escaped from in Europe.

            You have a very slanted view of what this country was built and the moral values that are a big part of our culture and traditions.

          117. Gammi2Anna says

            So if Muslims ‘worship the Old Testament God of Abraham, just as do Christians and Jews’, please enlighten me as to where it is found in the Old Testament that beheading Christians and mutilating the genitalia of little girls is acceptable. Where does it say that young 5 or 6 y/o females are to be raped by the “Mohamed” leader of the Muslims? I have read the Bible, yet there is no mention in either the New or Old Testament where we are instructed to take young boys into the desert and teach them to kill by any means, even if they must strap a explosive device to their chest and detonate it in a crowd. I do know we are expected to not be greedy and to sacrifice/share what we have been blessed with, helping the less fortunate, sick or infirmed. But NO where can I find what you think of as a form of religion that the Muslims practice in our world today. Maybe what you say is true of how they lived and worshipped hundreds of years ago, but it certainly is not what they practice today. I’m certain of one thing though. When I hear them yell “Death to America” or see them line up Christians, on their knees with their hands tied behind their backs, then lop off their heads, I’m pretty certain I do not want to ‘be their friend’ or what they might call, their next victim. We definitely DO NOT worship the same God. I’d prefer to practice a bit of caution so I can ‘keep my head’. Otherwise, what am I gonna do with this expensive pair of glasses I just had to buy? No need to reply. I’ve dealt with your comments before which are nothing more than pure non-sense to the nth degree, accompanied by links to some obscure site from which you garner your info. If I wanted to be mislead and stupefied, I’d just listen to the MSM Fakers and Liars that Love to create Hatred and Division.

          118. AKLady says

            Mutilating the genitalia of little boys is a religious custom, among Jews and Christians As late as the 1970s, all military men were required to be circumcised. During the Vietnam era, an uncircumcised make was operated upon when inducted into the military. +

            Killing infidels has been a Christian custom for centuries, it still takes place not only in the Central African Republic, but right here in the United States.
            War is war, foolish one. How many wars is the US currently involved in? Yet, here you are sitting in judgment of another country at war. Really? That is called “do as you say, not as I do.”

            You are judging the many. by the actions of a few. There are 1.6 billion Muslims. Islam is the world’s second largest religious faith.
            You have allowed yourself to be brainwashed by the media, by the government — to justify a war. Funny things about that war: 1) All but one of the 9/11 terrorists were citizens of Saudi Arabia; 2) The terror training camps are in Saudi Arabia and still graduating terrorists; and 3) Saudi Arabia is sill our ally.

            The Holy Bible orders the killing of Infidels — yes, even in the New Testament. Muslims worship the Old Testament God of Abraham, just as do Christians and Jews. Don’t embarrass America with ignorance and religious bigotry. You insult everything our Founder fought and died for. You insult men and women who defends your freedom.

            Yes, Anna, you have put ignorance and bigotry before truth many tines before. Yes, Anna, you have insulted me many times before. Yes, Anna, you have insulted everything this Nation represents many times before.

            When it came to your education, your parents were cheated — badly cheated.

          119. Richard says

            The female mutilation that is conducted on girls at ages as low as five by the Muslims of faith deserves only our contempt. The marriage of girls at ages as young has 6 (as done by Mohammed) is nothing more than the lowest form of pedophilia.

          120. AKLady says

            Female circumcision is a tribal practice
            It is common in many African tribes, many of which are not Muslim.
            It is cultural, not religious..
            There is nothing in either the Bible or the Koran about female circumcision.
            Make circumcision is both religious and cultural.
            It has been practiced by many tribes and religions around the world.

            The question that should be asked is —
            Why should this be any of your business?
            Are you African? Do do you a daughter?
            Are you Muslim> DO you have a daughter.
            I had my son circumcised.
            We are Christian.
            Why? Because wives of circumcised males have less cervical cancer.

          121. Richard says

            You are really something, have you ever seen pictures of girls that have had this done. If you had a daughter would you have this done to her. Your answers are always so pathetic and Christian? Watching the youtube “Ann Barnhardt – Female Genital Mutilation in Islamic culture” would open an intelligent caring mind but I’m sure you will come up with stupid answer.

          122. AKLady says

            Rich families have it done by a doctor.
            Middle income families pay an experience practitioner.
            Poor families utilize whatever they can pay for.
            I have operated on circumcised girls.
            Although I do not approve, and spoke with parents at length.
            I have performed the surgery. I could have said no, a butcher would do it.
            The girl was put to sleep. The area was sterile. The instruments were sterile.
            The surgery was performed in a way that her future sexuality was not damaged.

          123. Lisa Meyer says

            First, you assume that IT has an intelligent, caring mind.
            Second, you would think, that with all of its professions of having been a doctor etc, etc., that it would not support practices such as FGM, and would in fact label them nothing less than an abomination and barbarianism. MOST educated Doctors would decry such practices. But not this one. Why do you suppose that is?

          124. Gammi2Anna says

            All the BS you have spewed has no relevance to my response to your ‘Praise of Muslims, their practice of Islam’ and calling it our Christian traditions. I was raised in a Christian home, and still consider myself to be a Christian today, just as I was in the 1970’s when you claim that newborn males and men entering the Viet Nam war were required to have circumcisions. You refer to this as a Religious custom practiced by Christians which is mutilation of male genitalia. I gave birth to our son and my husband was inducted into the Viet Nam war in 1972. There was never a mention of a required circumcision in either case. As is the usual case with you, your rhetoric is unfounded and ridiculous. If you prefer to think of your fellow American citizens as infidels and wish death to America, then be happy practicing your Islamic faith. However, just as you claimed in your statement that Americans and Christianity force patriots and believers to follow cruel and archaic practices, I claim that you are wrong. However it is common knowledge that the heinous practices of Islam are presently carried out on a daily basis, in the name of Allah. I find it odd that you get your panties in a bunch about a male being circumcised, which was introduced as a medical recommendation for health reasons, not a religious decree, yet you do not blink at the beheadings of Christians, Jews and even their own people. I’m guessing losing a little tiny piece of foreskin on a penis is a little less painful and certainly not as deadly as getting one’s head loped off with a machete.

            Remembering the Lincoln Philosophy “It is best to keep silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt”, I think this might work best for you. Lincoln was a very smart man as was another man whom I will defer to the advice of. The Great Thomas Paine, an English-American Political Activist, Writer and Revolutionary wrote “To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead”. I know this to be a cold hard fact. Even though you feel my parents were badly cheated when it came to my education, my 45+ years of providing healthcare services to the thousands in need of care that I was blessed to provide my knowledge and skills to was beneficial to my patients, rewarding to me and neither my parents nor I have ever felt cheated. I only wish there was a medication we could discover that would cure the afflictions brought on by extreme “Hate and Anger”. That, in my opinion is the worse kind of ‘self-mutilation’.

          125. AKLady says

            Allah is the WORD god in Arabic and Mylay.
            Allah is not the name of a god.
            Muslims worship the Old Testament God of Abraham — the same God worshiped by Christians and Jews.
            .
            Suggest you learn a bit more about circumcision and its religious origins. Male circumcision is compulsory for Jews and is commonly practiced among Muslims. The practice is known as brit milah (Covenant of Circumcision) and it is performed on the eighth day after the birth of a baby boy, as instructed in the book of Leviticus. It is regarded as a sign of the covenant with God.

            Routine infant circumcision of nearly every boy born after World War II, continued through the 1960’s and into the 1970’s.

            Your religious bigotry is an embarrassment to America, everything it stands for, and everything our Founders fought and died for. Next time try educsting yourself further before playing the insult game.

            And, our WORST enemy has been Iran, a Muslim country. That is until Obama agreed to a “non-binding” deal that lifted sanctions, gave them access to billions of dollars and let them sell their oil on the world market. And yet, they yell, “Death to Americans!”. How Obama loves his Muslims.

            All but one of he 9/11 terrorists were citizens of Saudi Arabia. The terror training camp that trained those men is still open and spitting out terrorists. Yet, Saudi Arabia remains America’s ally.
            .
            Exactly what has Iran done to America?
            Well, besides nationalizing a few oil wells?
            The Iranians were just sick of the Shah, and threw him out.
            The US took him in. And, yes, I remember the hostage crisis.

            Remember, about a quarter century earlier, the US had overthrown a popular government to create a dictatorship centered around the Shah. That largely explains why US-Iranian relations have been awful since 1979.
            Well, LT, if there is going to be peace, someone has to take the first step. Obama did that. Now, we are facing an escalation of the Korean War — the war which has been going on since before I was born. The war in which my father was killed. Soon, it will be known as the Second 100 Years War.

          129. usmcltc says

            Exactly what has Iran done to America? Surly you jest, as I am certain that you know that Iran has supported terrorism that has affected our country. I’ll bet that you even think the “non-binding” agreement that we agreed to with Iran was a GOOD deal.
            By the way, “LT” is the abbreviation for Lieutenant. Since I was a Lieutenant Colonel, the next time you try to be funny, you can refer to me as LTC or COL. I would have thought that you new the difference, but what do I know.

          130. Lisa Meyer says

            And IT claims to have been in the military, and had several family members in the military also. Which it just proved is another lie.

            Yet, Saudi Arabia remains America’s ally.

            Yes, I knew the difference. I simply made a typo.

            So now you are siding with countries that support terrorist activities. Why am I NOT surprised. If you will remember, Japan did nothing to the U.S., until, well you know the rest of the story.

The United States 1st war after the Revolutionary War was with the Barbary Pirates; who were Muslim. Jefferson actually studied the Koran; in order to know how to defeat it.

            I usually don’t respond to blind Idiots; but in your particular case; i’ll make an exception. Religious Bigot? Hardly. In THIS country; you ARE Free to practice your religion as you deem fit; as long as it doesn’t infringe on the rights and lives of other Americans. Islam is the only so called religion ( Its really a political cult; truth be told ) in the entire world where they will kill you IF you don’t convert and submit to it. Next point. Brainwashed? No; I took the red pill a long time ago; and im wide awake. What I stated IS Historical FACT; not OPINION. And lastly; a poll was recently taken of Muslims living in the United States. The basic question posed was: Does Sharia Law supersede the United States Constitution? Not surprisingly; a vast majority of rag headed camel jockeys stated Sharia DOES supersede the Constitution. Think on that. With Muslims and Islam; the names and faces change; but the tact is always the same. Integrate into the Host Country ; wait until your numbers are sufficient; and then subvert the Host Country as a Society and Nation. It has been played and replayed over and over again throughout history. I don’t know if you’re Muslim or not; trying to justify a god forsaken murderous cult. But I know one thing for certain: You are NOT an American in the true sense of the word.

          139. AKLady says

            You confuse civil law with religious law.
            Religious law has always superseded civil law.
            Religion is something one chooses to follow.
            .
            Example: Divorce is legal in all 50 states.
            Divorce is prohibited by some religious law.
            Example: Remarriage after divorce is forbidden by some religious law.
            It is legal in all 50 states.
            ;
            You have been led down the garden path. amd have allowed it gladly.

            In your ignorance, you insujlt many nationalities and religions with your reference to “rag headed”. Islam is not the only religion which requires men to cover their heads.

Your lack of true understanding of the threat that Islam confronts this nation with can only be attributed to ignorance. Any intelligent person who has read “Muslim Mafia” would recognize this threat and I am not the only one who believes this. General William Boykin has done a youtube video in which he describes the threat very clearly, wonder if he has ever heard of you – military officer?

          143. AKLady says

            Actually. I am amazed it has taken so long for the anger and hate to erupt.
            The British kept them as ignorant. second class citizens while raping them of all their great wealth. It took them a long time to wake up. The hate is huge. The anger is huge. They will wrought punishment. Britain, France, Spain and even Germany have punishment coming their way. There is no amount of cash reparation available to solve the problem.
            America paid what she owed, apologized for the delay is making the refund.
            Obama;s actions, combined with the color of his skin, just may be the saving grace for the US of A. Those Iranian funds had been illegally held since 1979.

            Then we fought the Barbary Pirates!

          146. Richard says

            You mean when the Barbary pirates who operated out of Morocco were defeated by the US Marine Corps in the Barbary War. When they were forced to surrender and sign a peace agreement, is that “the first country to recognize our Nation”? it has in fact the first war America faught after the war of independence and the war was against Islam.

          147. AKLady says

            Why do you couple the Ottoman corsairs with a religion? period from the 16th century forward, when Algiers, Tunis and Tripoli came under the control of the Ottoman.

            The attacks were not related to religion in any manner. The attacks continued into the 19th century. The French conquest Algiers in 1830 brought about the end of the attacks.

            In 1777, Morocco was the first independent nation to publically recognize the U.S. I]n 1784 became the first Barbary power to seize an American vessel after the nation achieved independence. The Treaty of Tripoli (Treaty of Peace and Friendship between the United States of America and the Bey and Subjects of Tripoli of Barbary), signed in 1796.

          148. Richard says

            That’s the real problem isn’t it. The TripolyMuslim/Corsair/Islamist representative told Jefferson, Madison and Franklin that the reason they attacked the American ships was because their religion, Allah and Mohammed, told them they have the right to attack the infidels. In fact they had to attack the ships whether they were American or not. Their rellgion gave them the right. How much clearer could it be but there is the fold, Islam is a political idealogy not a religion. This ideology stated that to be a good/true Muslim you must attack and destroy anyone who will not submit to the will of Allah.

            Are you a good Muslim, obviously you must be because you continue to divert all eyes away from Islam. There is the problem with you trying to convert the west, you don’t want those in the west to see you for what you are. You don’t want us asking questions and investigating Islam. Muslims don’t question Islam because to be a Muslim you must – SUBMIT WITHOUT QUESTION.

            Hey, I will never submit and 330,000,000 other Americans will not submit. When the Day of Reckoning or Resurrection comes and there are 10,000 heads stacked in a pyramid I may be the one at the top but the other 9,999 under me will be the heads of Muslims and you will be ENDED!

          149. AKLady says

            Your ignorance and religious bigotry embarrasses America.
            Your false statements embarrass America.
            The Ottoman attacks were not bases on religion.
            .
            Convert the west?
            Islam is the world’s second largest religion.
            It has over 1.6 billion adherents.
            Islam was part of the Americas before the United States was a nation.

            Why do you feel the need to lie about Muslims? Why do you feel the need to spew bigotry and hate? Why do you insult what our Founding Fathers fought and died for?

            More importantly, why do you feel it is acceptable to
            threaten other people’s lives?

          150. Richard says

            Why do you continue to lie and deceive. I know the reason it is called “‘taqiyya”. It is the way of deceiving your enemies until you have defeated them. A Musllim can tell a lie to an infidel/non muslim/kafir and it is perfectly OK because they are doing it in the name of and for Alllah. It is written in the Koran and in the Sunna/Hadith. And again, Islam was “not” part of the Americas before the US was a nation, again you lie. What I “spew” is the truth and you hate that because we are suppost to be too stupid to see it, but we do. As for embarrassing America, I came to this country ages ago and joined the US Marines to fight for this country. I know what HONOR is and I know you have none.

            Your “religion” threatens the lives of all people in the world who are not Muslims. Is there any real difference between you and Hitler. His goal was to conquer the world in the name of the Aryan (Proto-Indo-European religion) race. He also thought he was a god just as Mohammed thought he was a prophet of god (Allah).

          151. AKLady says

            Lying is the 17th most serious offense under Islam.
            Lying is only permitted to save one’s life.
            What you spew is hate, lies and bigotry.
            Did you train at Paris Island?
            Do you remember a DI named Paul Seavy?
            He is my cousin.

          152. Richard says

            Lying to a Muslim is the 17th most serious offense under Islam. Lying to a Kafir is totally acceptable. Yasser Arafat signed a 10 year treaty with Israel and was confronted with screams from many Muslim nations, “How could you sign a treaty with the devil” he answered with one word “taqiyya” and they understood. Israel and the rest for the world didn’t understand what he was talking about.

          153. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

            Three strangers strike up a conversation in the airport lounge in Bozeman, Montana, awaiting their flights.One is an American Indian, passing thru from Lame Deer. Another is a cowboy on his way to Billings for a livestock show. And the third is a fundamentalist Arab student from the Middle East, newly arrived at Montana State University. Their discussion drifts to their diverse cultures. Soon, the two Westerners learn that the Arab is a devout, radical Muslim and the conversation falls into an uneasy lull.

            The cowboy leans back in his chair, crosses his boots on a magazine table and tips his big sweat-stained hat forward over his face. The wind outside is blowing tumbleweeds around and the old windsock is flapping, but still no plane comes. Finally, the American Indian clears his throat and softly speaks. “At one time here, my people were many, but sadly, now we are few. The Muslim student raises an eyebrow and leans forward, “Once my people were few,” he sneers, “and now we are many. Why do you suppose that is?” The Montana cowboy shifts his toothpick to one side of his mouth, and from the darkness beneath his Stetson says in a drawl, “That’s ’cause we ain’t played Cowboys and Muslims yet, but I do believe it’s a-comin'”.

          174. usmcltc says

          175. AKLady says

            It has everything to do with religious bigotry on the part of those who have taken that oath. That is especially true given the fact that very few countries in the Middle and Near East represent but a miniscule number of Muslims.

            You are an embarrassment and pathetic. You make stupid little mistakes that expose you for what you are. You stated that the 10 Crusades that lasted over 400 years, in fact there were 8 major Crusades and they lasted just under 200 years (1095-1291). Crusades, military expeditions, beginning in the late 11th century, that were organized by western European Christians in response to centuries of Muslim wars of expansion. Their objectives were to check the spread of Islam, to retake control of the Holy Land in the eastern Mediterranean.

            I have already shown that you information about the Barbary Pirates and slavery during their period in history is clearly incorrect. Your comment that Islam has been part of Amerioca since before the war of independence show you for what you really are, a deceiver and whether you actually have American citizenship or not, you are not an American.

          206. AKLady says

            The Crusades began with the Battle of Civetot on Oct. 21, 1096.
            They ended with the Siege of Granada on Jan. 2, 1492.
            There were 12 Crusades.
            .
            The Spanish brought slaves to the Caribbean, S. America and N. America.
            America brought slaves into the Colonies long before the Declaration of Independence. Why do you believe slaves from N. Africa were not Muslim?

            However, you are severely mistaken in regard to the “morality” issue. Franklin, like the majority of Founders was a agnostic. Also, should you bother to study his history, you would know that he was also a bigamist. He ahs a wife in America and another in England.

            Trump issued a Muslim ban, had it thrown in his face,
            and had to legalize the language.

          38. Diesel Driver says

            Not correct. He violated the constitution a lot. His actions to bypass congress with executive orders were unconstitutional. His blatant violation of his own signature law by setting back of deadlines for certain portions of it to be enacted were unconstitutional. There’s lots of other actions on his part that were also unconstitutional. Fast and furious. Blatantly and egregiously unconstitutional.

          39. usmcltc says

            I think that you are in denial.

            Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson on Tuesday outlined his opposition to DACA protections for immigrant youths. “I pledged to take an oath to uphold the Constitution,” Peterson wrote in a statement reaffirming his support for a request that the Trump administration reverse its decision to allow so-called DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival) youths to retain legal presence in the United States.

            Peterson challenged the DACA executive action taken by former President Barack Obama on the grounds that Congress has “the exclusive authority to establish uniform rules regarding immigration policy”. The Constitution directs that “determining policy direction lies with the legislative branch and not the president acting via executive order,” he said.
            And there appears to be many people that think Obama violated the Constitution by usurping Congress concerning immigration.

          40. AKLady says

            Unlawful entry is a federal misdemeanor.

            THE CONSTITUTION EXPLICITLY ASSIGNED THE PRESIDENT THE POWER TO sign or veto legislation, command the armed forces, ask for the written opinion of their Cabinet, convene or adjourn Congress, GRANT REPRIEVES AND PARDONS, and receive ambassadors. Article II

          41. usmcltc says

            Of course, you are right, but where does it say in the Constitution that the president has the explicitly assigned power to provide amnesty to and extending social benefits reserved for American Citizens to minors who came to the U.S. illegally?

          42. AKLady says

            You stated the reason, but simply went right past it.
            Minors did not “come” to the U.S., they were BROUGHT.
            We can enter into a formal discussion of “mens rea” if you want.
            In America, we do not hold children responsible for
            crimes committed by their parents.

          43. usmcltc says

            So, you want to play the “word game”? “Brought” or “came”, the question that you have to answer is: “Are these children here legally?” I think you have to agree that they are NOT here legally and have no RIGHT to be here, regardless of HOW they came to be in our country.
            But, the fact remains that the parents illegal actions caused the children’s problems today. The fact that they were “brought” here does not mean that they have a RIGHT to stay here, as if that were the case, more illegal immigrants would be encouraged to bring their kids to the U.S.. Of course, that is what the liberals want as they see these illegals as potential Democrat voters.

          44. AKLady says

            Improper entry is a civil matter, not criminal. It is a misdemeanor.
            Unlawful presence is neither a felony or a misdemeanor.
            It is not a crime for a removable alien to remain present in the United States

            A child had no more choice in the matter than did an African sold in America’s slave market. Someone brought in as a child may not even be aware that they are not American born.

            Unlawful re-entry after a deportation order can be a federal crime, depending on circumstances ..

          45. usmcltc says

            Improper entry is a civil matter, not criminal. Wrong.

            To be clear, the most common crime associated with illegal immigration is likely improper entry. Under federal criminal law, it is misdemeanor for an alien (i.e., a non-citizen) to:

            Enter or attempt to enter the United States at any time or place other than designated by immigration officers;

            Elude examination or inspection by immigration officers; or

            Attempt to enter or obtain entry to the United States by willfully concealing, falsifying, or misrepresenting material facts.

            The punishment under this federal law is no more than six months of incarceration and up to $250 in civil penalties for each illegal entry. These acts of improper entry — including the mythic “border jumping” — are criminal acts associated with illegally immigrating to the United States.

            Like all other criminal charges in the United States, improper entry must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt in order to convict.

          46. AKLady says

            Unlawful presence is a violation punishable by civil penalties, not criminal. Chief among these civil penalties is deportation or removal, where an unlawful resident may be detained and removed from the country. (Arizona v. United States (11-182) https://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/cert/11-182)

            Improper entry is a crime, however, it is not a felony. It has the weight, basically, of a parking ticket. Willfully concealing, falsifying, or misrepresenting material facts is fraud. Fraud is a crime.

          47. usmcltc says

            It is a violation of federal immigration law to remain in the country without legal authorization, but this violation is punishable by civil penalties, not criminal. Chief among these civil penalties is deportation or removal, where an unlawful resident may be detained and removed from the country.
            Are these children in the U.S. with legal authorization? NO.
            Did these children violate our federal immigration laws? YES
            Are these children subject to civil penalties? YES
            Are these children subject to deportation or removal? YES
            Case closed, unless you want to continue to support people who violate our immigration laws.

          48. AKLady says

            Unlawful entry is a civil violation, not a crime.
            Illegal presence is neither a civil violation nor a crime.

            Supreme Court case Arizona vs. United States. The majority opinion found that “as a general rule, it is not a crime for a removable alien to remain present in the United States.” https://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/cert/11-182

          49. AKLady says

            Unlawful presence is neither a felony nor a misdemeanor. Reference: 2012 Supreme Court case Arizona vs. United States. The majority opinion found that “as a general rule, it is not a crime for a removable alien to remain present in the United States.”

          50. usmcltc says

            There we go again trying to rationalize the support for illegal immigrants. If all of what you say is correct, we do not have a problem, as anybody should be able to enter our country when ever they want to (not crime here), receive all the benefits of U.S. citizens (the right thing to do), and remain here as long as they want without fear of deportation (the contribute so much to our society). Did I get that right?
            What is all of the turmoil about fixing a “broken immigration system”, as you have basically said that there is NOTHING to be fixed, except giving illegals a “path” to citizenship (a favorite for liberals – potential Democrat future voters).

          51. AKLady says

            Below is an answer to questions like yours.
            Tell you what, every black person in this county is the child of a person who was an unauthorized entry. That technically mage then unlawfully present. Shall we punish them for their ancestors illegal entry?
            .
            Force out children brought here against their will makes their entry the same as those of the slaves.

            Then there is the fact that the illegals country of origin can simply refuse to tale the,. That has happen in a couple recent deportations.

            Trump also called all the Mexican illegal murders and rapists. Why would Mexico want an influx of murders and rapists.?
            Trump killed the trade treaty, which may not be legally his to do, as ounce Congress approves a treaty, it becomes American law.
            Oh. amd if we play with deportation game with children, just how will that effect the safety of Americans traveling outside the I.S.?

          52. Joey says

            You spin lies so easily. Trump never said all Mexicans are rapists and murders. He did however truthfully say that many of them are. Here’s a fact for you numb nuts. In Texas alone in the last 2 years there have been 647,000 plus crimes committed by illegal aliens. Murder, drugs, human trafficking, robbery serious physical assaults, etc. why? Because you liberal idiots are only interested in the votes. But when the evil comes knocking at your door, you have no one else to blame or accuse except Liebama, your Party of choice and yourself.
            Good luck keeping safe.
            Yo yo brain.

          53. usmcltc says

            Tell you what, every black person in this county is the child of a person who was an unauthorized entry. That technically mage then unlawfully present. Shall we punish them for their ancestors illegal entry? I think your logic has goon adrift. What immigration law was in effect when the slaves were brought to our country? Answer: NONE, so you argument does not hold water. Can’t you come up with something better that?

            Shall we punish them for their ancestors illegal entry? There were no laws then, so the slaves were NOT illegals. Time to get real! The illegal children of today, according to our current immigration laws are NOT the same as the slaves, as there were NO immigration laws for them to break. Fact!

          54. AKLady says

            The law is a side issue.
            The children did not choose to come.
            Crime requires intent.
            In the case of children mens rae is absent.

          55. usmcltc says

            Rationalization, rationalization! One question, “Are these “dreamers” here legally”? If you can answer yes, I concede the argument.

          56. AKLady says

            Please specifically explain how a child can violate the law, ad stated below.

          57. AKLady says

            Please specifically explain how a child can violate the law, ad stated below. Pay attention to detail, in law, details are significant.

            8 U.S. Code § 1325 – Improper entry by alien

          58. usmcltc says

            Regardless of how YOU like to spin the facts, these children are in the U.S. illegally, as that is why they are called illegal immigrants. Da! The fact that they were brought to our country as children does not change that fact and their parents put them in the position that they are in today.
            I hear the bleeding hearts say that we should not send them back to a country that they have never known and can’t speak the language. Well, that did not seem to bother them when the came to the U.S. (a country that they have never know) and did not speak the language (English). The bottom line is: Should we reward these Dreamers just because their parents broke our immigration laws and brought these “kids” into our country ILLEGALLY? I think not. The problem is that liberals just do not comprehend the meaning of “illegal”, period!

          59. AKLady says

            Punish a child for the action of a parent?
            Really?

          60. usmcltc says

            No, the parent caused this mess for their children, as I guess that they relied upon liberals to fix that mess. Deport the parents and they have the option to take the child with them or leave them with friends or LEGAL relatives. Is that too hard to understand?

          61. AKLady says

            “….I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same….”

          62. usmcltc says

            And, illegal immigrants are illegal immigrants — period, end of discussion. By the way, we are talking about “dreamers” who are NOT citizens, remember?

          63. Joey says

            Thank you!!!

          64. usmcltc says

            Force out children brought here against their will makes their entry the same as those of the slaves. Nice try, but you are talking apples and oranges. Slaves were FORCES to come to our country and broke no laws, while illegal immigrants came her on the OWN FREE WILL while breaking our immigration laws. Bad logic!

            Why would Mexico want an influx of murders and rapists.? They wouldn’t want an influx of murders and rapists. Dah.

            Oh. amd (sic) if we play with deportation game with children, just how will that effect the safety of Americans traveling outside the I.S.? I don’t know, YOU tell me.

          65. AKLady says

            Children were forced to come here.
            They did not come under their own free will.
            With sentiment about the issue, Americans
            will find themselves unwelcome in a number of places.

          66. usmcltc says

            The are NOT “children” anymore, as their average age is 25 years old. But nice try.

            They did not come under their own free will. What, were they tied up and gaged and FORCED to come here illegally?

            With sentiment about the issue, Americans will find themselves unwelcome in a number of places. Are you kidding me!? This is a stretch. Tell me which countries will cease to welcome Americans because we protect OUR borders and take appropriate action against those who violate our laws. Other than Mexico and Central America countries who want us to take care of their rejects for them. Come on!

          67. AKLady says

            “What, were they tied up and gaged and FORCED to come here illegally?”

            At what age do you believe they might have had a choice?

            Let’s assume, for the sake of argument, that your parent’s brought you to America at one year of age. You speak only English. Suddenly you are gabbed by the authorities and dumped in a foreign county. You don’t speak the langiage. You have no local family to turn to. You have no friends ..How will you survive?

          68. usmcltc says

            First, I would be pissed at my parents for putting me in this situation! For argument sake, I assume that my parents would be deported and I would go with them. If they were dead, I would have to rely on family, but you say that they have NO family to turn to. Did you say that to make a point or to support YOUR argument. But, the fact that the average age of Dreamers is 25 years old kind of destroys “how will you survive” as they are not “kids” anymore.
            The country to which they came from would be responsible for them as they are citizens of THAT country. You make it sound like WE are responsible for everybody that makes it into our country illegally. Not so.

          69. AKLady says

            Tell me, truthfully, at what age could your children refuse to accompany you on PCS order? Be honest now …

          70. usmcltc says

            In my case, my kids were 15, 13 and 12 when they refused to go with me when I received PCS orders. I was assigned to the 9th MC District, and we were living in Olathe, KS, when I got order to attend the Naval War College in New Port, RI. The kids AND my wife said that they were NOT moving, and I bached it for nine months in RI living in the Officer’s BOQ. I then got orders to Marine Corps HQ in Washington, DC, and the kids and my wife said that they were not moving there, so I bached it their until I retired after renting a condo from a Col who had orders to Okinawa.

          71. AKLady says

            My children did what they were told, when they were told.. Oldest girl was 14, in addition to keeping the two siblings in order, she supervised the movers while I took the boy to the ER. Daddy was at sea –drug patrol.
            I spent a typhoon in BAQ at Anderson AFB. Worse exprince of my life. Secon floor jalousie window. The windows ran almost floor to ceiling, with about 15 in of wall under them. By the time the winds topped 200 mph, the BAG had turned into a swimming pool. The chidren were 1 an 2.5. We would have been better in our rental WWII quancet Hit off base.

          72. AKLady says

            Your children did not refuse, your spouse did.
            Children do not get to make that decision.
            The fact that you allowed such action is very interesting, many, if not most spouses would consider it grounds for divorce. In divorce court it is called desertion.

          73. usmcltc says

            Yes, I could have FORCED them to move to New Port and then to Washington. However, we had just moved into a new house that we built the previous year. What to do with the house also was a consideration. Unlike you, I let my children make decisions, rather than DICTATE what they will do. That approach worked out pretty good, I might add.

          74. AKLady says

            The house changes the entire scenario.
            My family would not have built the house prior to retirement.
            We made the owner/renter mistake early on.
            Decided it was too much of a problem.

          75. usmcltc says

            I had three years to go before I retired and I had not planned to move away from the KC area. This house was our retirement home and we lived there 20 years before we moved to Las Vegas.

          76. AKLady says

            Speaking of KC, are those filthy, smelly stock yards still running?
            My former in-laws lived in Independence, other relatives in Norborne.

          77. usmcltc says

            No, the KC stock yards closed down in 1991. When I was in the 8th grade, we took a field trip to KC to visit the stock yards and watch them kill and cut up cows. We also visited the BPO (Buick, Pontiac, and Oldsmobile assembly plant). It has also closed as GM no longer produces Pontiac or Oldsmobile autos).

            As Sessions put it:

            This unilateral executive amnesty, among other things, contributed to a surge of minors at the southern border that yielded terrible humanitarian consequences and it denied jobs to hundreds of thousands of Americans by allowing those same illegal aliens to take those jobs.

            Their current age is immaterial. What!? You are the one citing that these “children” will be separated from their parents. If unlawful presence is not a “crime”, why are offenders deported from the U.S.? According to you, there is NO need for immigration laws. Did I get that right?
            “Deport them” What costs increase?
            I beg to disagree and I don’t think many illegals pay the same federal or property taxes that I pay, but nice try.
            Americans do not want those jobs. How many times have I heard liberals recite this untruth? If you would do some research, you would find that the majority of the jobs you speak of are held by native born Americans. However, the problem is caused by people like you that want illegals how hold wages down to remain in our country. If illegals would not work for peanuts, maybe employers would have to pay a “living wage” (I got that from liberals) to their employers and native born Americans WOULD want these jobs.

            Again you people amaze me. I do not get your point. What does your questions have to do with our conversation about illegal kids?

            Yes, illegals pay fuel tax and sales tax. But concerning federal taxes, Federal government data shows that while roughly half of illegal immigrants file federal tax returns, the vast majority of them don’t pay any federal income taxes. Instead, they use these returns to claim REFUNDABLE tax credits, which are a form of cash welfare. In other words, illegal immigrants mainly use the federal income tax code to COLLECCTt money from U.S. citizens.

          85. AKLady says

            You are the one who claimed illegals did not pay the same taxes as everyone else. If taxes are a business expense, then they are used in the calculation of rental fees. That, sir, is payment of property tax by an illegal. It also represents payment of property tax by every renter.

            Income taxes? It is highly doubtful that most illegals earn enough to even owe income tax. Go tale a look at the dedications and tax brackets. https://taxfoundation.org/2017-tax-brackets/

            If they work for an employer, Federal Withholding is automatic. That is where the stolen SSNs become a problem. The rightful owner of that SSN is the one credited with the earnings. That issue can be avoided just by applying for a TIN.

            “Just how far do you think those tax benefits go when it comes to food, clothing and shelter? I DO NOT CARE how far the taxes that I pay will go for illegal immigrant’s food, clothing and shelter, as they should NOT be here in the first place. If you want to give them YOUR taxes, go right ahead.
            Do you mean those jobs that illegal immigrants hold that could be held by native born Americans or legal immigrants. You people in Alaska should be ashamed at giving jobs to illegal immigrants!

            1. Unlawful entry is a CIVIL misdemeanor, not a crime.

            a) Americans do not have the qualifications for the jobs, and/or
            b) they won’t do that type of work.
            .
            As a teen, when I worked picking grapes or produce, it was a rare day in Hades that I worked with an American. I did that type of work because I could make more money than minimum wage, and no one cared if I worked over the legal number of hours.

          90. usmcltc says

            This is a repeat of one of your previous posts, and I have already responded.

          91. usmcltc says

            What!? I never said that “illegals did not pay the same taxes as everyone else”. But, that is probably true. How many illegals OWN businesses, legally?

            Of course, taxes are a “business expense”, if you own a business. DA! They are used in the calculation of rental fees? I guess that you are assuming that the business owned is engaged in “renting” something, right?

            I own a rental, and I rent it for the going rate in the locality. Out of the profits, I pay the taxes, and the taxes have NOTHING to do with the amount of rent that I charge.

            “It also represents payment of property tax by every renter”. Now, I KNOW that you have lost it! The renter is NOT responsible for any property taxes on the rental, as I am responsible for those taxes. You can say that I pay the property taxes with moneys received in rent, BUT in no stretch of reality can you say that “it represents payment of property tax by the renter”. GET REAL.

            “The rightful owner of that SSN is the one credited with the earnings.” The rightful owner of that SSN also has one hell of a fight on his hands with the IRS to prove that the income reflected were NOT earned by him. Thanks illegal immigrant for making this person’s life miserable.

          92. AKLady says

            Quite a few immigrants own businesses.

            There is no “citizenship” and/or “residency” requirement for business licenses.

            .

            If you are a landlord, property tax is part of the COST used to calculate the rental fee. Hence, every renter pays property tax, if indirectly. Renting is a business, even if it is just your spare bedroom.

            On the other hand, some illegals own their own homes. Those homeowners tax out of their own pocket.

            “…The rightful owner of that SSN also has one hell of a fight…” That is your assumption. I would not have any difficulty proving where I lived and worked. Moreover. the majority of employer’s, shown an individual’s picture can state whether or not they employed the person. Fact: the majority of employers now routinely photograph employees for their records.

          93. usmcltc says

            Hence, every renter pays property tax, if indirectly. There you go again, twisting words to make an invalid point. Fact: Renters pay rent, period, and they are NOT responsible to pay real estate taxes. The owner is responsible for paying the real estate taxes and pay them out of income, even if the rental is NOT rented. Why do you keep trying to twist words to fit your argument?
            Where have you been? Haven’t you read the stories about people who have income charged to them by other people using their SS card? The IRS has consistently said that they earnings where charged to the actual owner of the SS card, SO that person owes taxes on that income. I think that you would sing a different tune if someone used YOUR SS card and earnings were charged to your SS number.

            Having a bit of experience with the IRS, I am not in awe of the agency.
            Just how had do you think it is to prove you did not work for an employer?
            I’ve read a lot of the “hate mail” about illegals.

            I am also aware of the fact that employers, Social Security and the IRS make mistakes. When I was an “employee” I checked my records a couple times a year.

            You obviously did not learn much getting your MBA OR maybe you did and you are getting senile.

            In Missouri, where I own the rental, we charge rent based on what the market will bare. Regardless of what you think, I did not pick the “rent” number out of the air. Of course, it is a help that my sister is a real estate agent in the town were the rental is located.

            Factually, they total up the expenses and add a reasonable profit. Over the years, I have found that knowing my ACTUAL expenses is really hard to determine at the first of the year. I can not foresee repairs and the taxes change every year. I have had this particular rental for 5 years and raised the rent $50.00 two years ago.

            “Just how had (sic) do you think it is to prove you did not work for an employer?” It is not hard at all, IF you can get someone to listen to you, but HOW do you prove that the earnings is NOT really yours.
            You say, “I would not have any difficulty proving where I lived and worked.” You miss the point, as you DO NOT have to prove where you live and work. You have to prove where you DO NOT live and DO NOT work. Get it?

            Are you saying that the “living wage” is the minimum wage? I think that you would agree that the “living wage” is probably different for many people. I can not believe that the liberals want the minimum wage to be set at $15.00 an hour, and I think that those efforts are only put forth to get votes. Ask Seattle how they are doing with their $15.00 minimum wage. As far as business that pay $8.00 for unskilled laborers who have not experience, do you think that they can afford an 88% increase in labor costs, if the federal minimum wage is raised to $15.00. People should have to work for a wage increase, not given to them by the federal government at the business owners expense, but that is how liberals think.
            Yes, I have noticed how many of his cabinet have jumped ship OR got fired. So what?

          101. AKLady says

            Minimum wage is different for many forms of labor. In many states it does not apply to “tipped employees.” . Some states, such as Wisconsin, have different wage rates for occupation that are “exempt from the regular minimum wage”.

            As far as government control of wages, I assure you it is necessary. Most employers are not “Mr. Nice Guy”. I suggest you check your state’s wage laws. You may be surprised at the number of workers exempt from either minimum wage and/or overtime pay. The “managerial” salaried employee fraud is one of the most frequent abuses.

          102. usmcltc says

            Do you agree with the federal government setting the minimum wage at $15.00? Just wondering if you have considered that change would have on business owners.
            The federal minimum wage is currently $7.25 and the minimum wage in Nevada is 8.25, with some exception for students and employees under 20 years of age. I guess you would call Nevada one of the Nice Guys”. Of course, Alaska has a minimum wage of $9.80, but I guess you would have to pay that to get people to work in that climate.
            You reference “managerial” fraud, but employees have the choice to accept a management or turn it down. When I worked for Hallmark Cards, I was exempt from overtime pay and was expected to work the hours necessary to get the job done. Managing three shifts, every week required that I work more than 40 hours, and I had no complaints.

          103. AKLady says

            “That climate” … LOL

            As a result of that Climate Change Myth, we have had better weather than most of the Northern parts of the 48 States. In fact, it is seriously damaging our winter industries. Our ski resorts are having to make artificial snow,
            .
            Our minimum is higher simply because the cost of living is higher. Hawaii’s minimum is also above the Lower 48.
            Alaska is three times the size of Texas. Our “climate” ranges from Polar Arctic to Rain Forest. The majority of Alaskans live in what is a very temperate zone.

            When you worked at Hallmark, you actually had management duties.
            Management fraud is a title without pay or authority.

          104. usmcltc says

            Bottom line: YOU can have Alaska.

            Management fraud is a title without pay or authority. I assume that you don’t know what you are talking about, as you NEVER were a manager WITHOUT pay or authority. By the way, Obama attempt to change the way managers were paid OT was just another way to give the people “free stuff” and get votes.

          105. AKLady says

            Let’s see, I was born to military parents, I served. and married three military spouses (two KIA). Would you like to guess how many states I have lived anf worked in? In the majority of states, managers are salaried and are not paid overtime. Yes, free stuff: for employers, not workers.

            14 Things the MSM Won’t Tell You About DACA

            This Is Only the Fault of the Parents. If your parents sneak you into Disneyland without paying, is it Disney’s fault when you are booted out, or is it the fault of your parents?

            DACA Recipients Are Illegal Aliens. This simple fact has been so downplayed and memory-holed, it just needed to be spoken out loud.

            DACA Is a Massive Amnesty Program. Qualified DREAMers are not only given a two-year deferment from deportation, they are eligible for a work permit, which means they can legally take a job in America.

            DACA Recipients Are Not the Children. DACA is eligible only to those aged 15-32. A very large percentage of DACA recipients are adults, not children or even minors. DACA Recipients Are Not the Children. DACA is eligible only to those aged 15-32.

            A very large percentage of DACA recipients are adults, not children or even minors. The idea that illegal aliens take jobs Americans won’t do is, of course, a lie. Plenty of Americans, most especially young Americans, would love the opportunity to work on a construction site or some other manual labor job. Moreover, if the wages were better, plenty of American would be willing to work in the fields. An untold number of young Americans who live in farm communities already do. But when you flood the country with illegal and/or foreign workers this — by design — suppresses wages to a point where only those willing to be exploited are willing to do this work for almost no money.

Then they say that, if agriculture wages were higher, many could not afford to eat. I guess they want everybody EXCEPT agriculture workers to make $15.00 and hour, but want agriculture works to continue to sweat doing the jobs Americans won’t do for peanuts. Did I get that right?
            Yes, and during the summers of ’58 and ’59, I worked on a wheat and cattle ranch in Montana which was over 1,000 miles from my home in Missouri. I made $165 a month, room, board, and washing. And, $12 a day during harvest. We worked from 7:00 AM until 6:PM, six days a week, and seven days a week during harvest. It was a rare day in Hades when one of the other ranch hands was an illegal immigrant.

            If the government had enforced the stipulation specified in the Immigration Act of 1986, we would not have the problems that we have today.

            – required employers to attest to their employees’ immigration status;

            – made it illegal to hire or recruit illegal immigrants knowingly;

            – legalized certain seasonal agricultural illegal immigrants, and;

            – legalized illegal immigrants who entered the United States before January 1, 1982 and had resided there continuously with the penalty of a fine, back taxes due, and admission of guilt; candidates were required to prove that they were not guilty of crimes, that they were in the country before January 1, 1982, and that they possessed at least a minimal knowledge about U.S. history, government, and the English language.

            NOW you really sound like a liberal – enforce only the laws you LIKE and ignore the laws you don’t like. I am surprised that you take this position, since you are NOT a liberal who thinks with their heart rather than with their brain.
            Reagan had said that signing the Immigration law of 1986 was a mistake. He also had said that he compromised with the Democrats who “promised” that they would secure the border, IF he gave amnesty to 3 million illegal immigrants in 1986. He said that it was a mistake because the Democrats never even make an effort to secure our border with Mexico. The end result is that the Democrats and the illegal immigrants got what THEY wanted, and the rest of us got the shaft. Now THAT is a fact.

Trump said that he was going to end DACA, then recently, he said that he would give Congress, who makes the laws, six months to come up with a law that would correct the situation. If they don’t come up with a solution, DACA is dead, period. You do remember that Obama said DACA was a “temporary” fix, right?

            Now you have switched from “Dreamers” who are NOT U.S. citizens to children who were born here who are citizens.

            “Those children are being deported along with their parents.” WRONG? They have a choice, as they can go with their parents, if they so decide OR they can remain in the U.S. as they are citizens. Who looks after their welfare is up to the parents, family and or friends, until they are old enough to take care of themselves. Not too hard to understand, right?

          122. AKLady says

            Minor children do not have choices.

          123. usmcltc says

            So, you feel that “children” do not have choices until they are 18 years of age. My children ALWAYS had choices, such as using drugs or NOT using drugs. Or, to stay out until 4:00 AM or come home at 11:00 PM. Or, to drive at 90 miles an hour in a 35 MPH speed zone or drive 35 MPH in that speed zone. Or, to shop life somethin at the store or pay for it.
            If you do not allow children to have “choices” until the age of 18, when they ae no longer minors, you are contributing to the terrible situation we find our children in today. You should be ashamed!

          124. AKLady says

            My God, not one of your choices relates to whether or not a small child can refuse to accompany a parent to the U.S. Talk about exaggeration!

            If anyone should be ashamed, it is you.
            I suggest you read the limitations contained in DACA.
            You are spewing nonsense.

          125. usmcltc says

            I really think you have lost it now. You said, “Minor children do not have choices.” And, I answered your comment. NOW, you want to talk about “exaggeration”! You did not say anything about minor children not having choices ABOUT BEING BROUGHT TO THE U.S.. YOU said, “Minor children do not have choices.” That IS nonsense. Period. Next time say what you mean!

          126. AKLady says

            The subject was unlawful entry. We were discussion DACA.
            I made a generalization based on the subject matter.
            In America, if you walked off leaving children on their own, you would be charged with child neglect, child endangerment, or other similar laws.

          127. usmcltc says

            Taxpayers in the United States will face a steep bill if the Trump administration signs legislation to extend legal status to so-called “Dreamers,” the illegal aliens who arrived as children and are now protected under the Obama-holdover unlawful executive order known as DACA.

            The numbers are striking. The DREAM Act of 2017, the most likely vehicle for extending DACA protections and making them permanent, would raise federal outlays by $115 billion dollars, according to a Breitbart News analysis. Nearly all of that would be paid for by additional deficit spending.

            You say that we can not AFFORD to protect our southern border, but I guess that it is okay to raise federal outlays by $115 for the DREAM Act of 2017. More deficit spending?

          128. AKLady says

            I suggest you review U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 2, Clause 1. Pay very close attention to the words “reprieve” and “pardon.” There was nothing illegal about Obama’s order.

            Illegal immigrant can, and do, buy health insurance. Why wouldn’t they? Newsweek reports indicate illegals are generally healthier and younger than the general population. Newsweek estimates the cost for health care for the typical illegal immigrant at 55% less than an existing U.S. citizen of the same age and with similar traits.

            Your Breitbart News ignores the fact that the immigrants pay the same taxes as you do. Everyone who purchases health insurance is eligible for income tax credits — if their deductions exceed the standard deductions. The “tax credit” scare is a real winner.

            What I think is that you are terribly brainwashed by negative propaganda.

          129. usmcltc says

            There was nothing illegal about Obama’s order. There are a lot of people that know more than you and I put together that DISAGREE with you as to the legality of his executive order.

            Illegal immigrant can, and do, buy health insurance. Can these illegal immigrants buy health insurance thru Obamacare on the exchanges? The rest of your comment is hogwash.
            You keep saying that immigrants pay the same taxes as I do. Are you referring to LEGAL immigrants or ILLEGAL immigrants. I have shown you the report were only about half of illegal immigrants file federal income taxes and most of those are filed to get a return. Why do you keep harping on something that does not even enter into the argument of illegals being deported.
            Do you want to see REAL brainwashing? Just read YOUR comments!

          132. usmcltc says

            So, lets send them a “Thank You” card, right before we deport them. On the other hand you forgot to mention in your comment, “They’re contributing billions of dollars a year in Social Security,…”, that one-half of this amount is contributed by their employers. Did you intentionally leave that fact out or didn’t you know it? Take your pick.

          133. AKLady says

            Having been an employer, I fully aware of employment taxes.
            Had I wanted to include that figure, I would have done so.

          134. usmcltc says

            So you tried to mislead by saying that illegals contributed the full amount. Did I get that right?

          135. AKLady says

            I did no such thing.
            Why do you make such a foolish accusation?

          136. usmcltc says

            So, does the “billions” that illegals contribute to Social Security include the amount paid by employers or just the amount paid by illegals. Please be clear.

          137. Joey says

            Right! How nice that you are so accomplished in every field of employment. NOT! Yet you don’t include pertinent facts that cost this country a fortune. I happen to personally know 3 illegal immigrants that work and have never filed their taxes. All three are great workers. All 3 are self employed and are clueless to what S.S. is. So it’s very logical that as employers they aren’t paying into S.S for their employees because that would raise a red flag with the government. Are they concerned about their future here? Sure they are. Yet none of them desire to change the way they do things. That would cost them money that they monthly send back to Mexico for their relatives.
            Not only are they dishonest in what they are doing. It’s illegal as well.

            Illegal immigrants cannot claim Social Security benefits.
            Paying SS taxes for employees does not raise any flags, one does not have to be a citizen, or even legal to obtain a Tax Identification Number (TIN) or be an employer in the US.

          139. Joey says

            Nope, never been an employer, I left that to my husband who has to deal with illegal aliens all the time. It’s a nightmare headache for him. He doesn’t hire them to work on his jobs anymore. His high end customers, mainly “liberal demoncrats” don’t appreciate all the sestia down time and the forever Mexican music.
            They don’t mind them cutting their grass and washing their many vehicles, but they do expect English speaking professionals to remodel their homes or build them new homes. They are very two faced in their beliefs and are truly only interested in the illegal aliens being here for the purpose of doing all the low cost manual labor and of course building up the demoncrats voting base. Maybe in the stone age you got away with filing and paying SS for your illegals, but today the paper work that has to be done constantly isn’t worth the headache. That is if you are an honest law abiding employer. Don’t bother trying to prove or convince me otherwise. You are wasting yours and my time.

            Are you kidding me!? “Simply stated, a high number of deportation would result in a recession, a very deep one.” If you really believe that we, as a country, can NOT survive WITHOUT illegal immigrants, you live in the wrong country. I can not believe YOU, of all people, have such little faith in our country, that you believe this.

            So, you are saying that we can not get along without illegal immigrants, right? If illegals are so important to our economy, why don’t we just open the borders and let anyone who wants to come to the U.S. come on in.
            By the way, who said farm workers HAVE to be illegal?

          146. AKLady says

            Gee, why don’t you tell us why companies bring in so many foreign workers on employment visas? The Visa Waiver Program is in effect for some countries. http://www.icelandair.us/information/before-you-go/usa-entry-rules/
            Entry is denied to individuals who have recently traveled to, or are nationals of Iran, Iraq, Sudan, or Syria. Why Afghanistan is not on that lust is a mystery. Oh, that is right, it is our ally.

          147. usmcltc says

            Trump is trying to cut the number annual visas from 100,000 to 50,000. Do you support that reduction?

          148. AKLady says

            That depends on how those cists are distributed.
            His religious bigotry is extremely offensive.
            His two-faced immigrant reality is also offensive.
            Illegals have wore one of his building projects
            His legally-documented racism very offensive.

          149. Joey says

            So everything is offensive that doesn’t line up with your liberal fascist ideology. That’s pretty much what you are saying.

          150. usmcltc says

            Again, do you support the proposed cut or not?

          151. AKLady says

            No, I do not. Those cuts will results in hardships for Americans, especially those who’s very lives depend upon personal services.

          152. usmcltc says

            And, just in!
            You may remember that Congress authorized then-DHS Secretary John Kelly earlier this year to increase the number of H-2B visas by around 70,000 for the 2017 fiscal year. The H-2B visa is mostly used by landscaping, hospitality and food service industries to fill jobs that are seasonal or temporary in nature.

            Much to the disappointment of the employers, Kelly made only 15,000 of the 70,000 available. And we learned this week, that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has stopped accepting applications after receiving just 13,534 applications.

            The fact that employers couldn’t use the full 15,000 additional visas proves their point and shows that employers really don’t need foreign workers; they just prefer them over American workers.
            Result: Employees don’t need foreign workers to replace American workers and this means LESS foreigners overstaying their visas. GREAT!

          153. AKLady says

            Actually, it reflects their lack of confidence in Trump.

            The historic record clearly documents that Trump changes his mind frequently, even going as far as to deny having done something. Here is a short lst of the false tweets: http://www.politifact.com/personalities/donald-trump/statements/byruling/false/

          154. usmcltc says

            Trump has a RIGHT to change his mind, just like Obama changed his mind (evolved) about same sex marriages.

            Congress increased the number of H-2B visas by around 70,000 for FY 2017, and Kelly lowered that to 15,000. They, low and behold, they couldn’t even fill more than less that 14,000. The H-2B visa is mostly used by landscaping, hospitality and food service industries to fill jobs that are seasonal or temporary in nature.

            “Those cuts will results in hardships for Americans, especially those who’s very lives depend upon personal services.” You should rethink that comment.

            The fact that employers couldn’t use the full 15,000 additional visas proves their point and shows that employers really don’t NEED foreign workers; they just PREFER them over American workers.

          155. AKLady says

            Low-wage, seasonal workers…farmers are hurting for workers.
            Trump’s actions have scared workers away, especially those who were incarcerated in the “concentration camps”.
            This is not the first time the immigration game has been played to the detriment of American consumers. Crops rotted in the fields back in 2011 for the very same reason. You would think Americans would learn — obviously politicians can lead by the nose

          156. usmcltc says

            So, you say that farmers are hurting for workers. Well, maybe, just maybe, if they paid a living wage (whatever that is), they might find enough workers. After all, they can’t even find enough people to fill the H-2B visa quotas, approved about 14,000. You are just using that old warn out liberals excuse for allowing illegals to remain in the U.S., and us ANY and ALL justification (false) to rationalize letting illegals remain in the U.S. after they have successfully snuck over our border undetected or overstayed their visas. How do you sleep at night, knowing that you condone law breakers who should be deported?

          157. AKLady says

            If farm wages increase, food prices go up.

          158. usmcltc says

            “If farm wages increase, food prices go up.” What would you rather have, increased prices OR food rotting in the fields? YOU support higher wages, like increasing the minimum wage, but you also favor illegal immigrants holding wages DOWN. Go figure.
            I do not, and have not, lived on a “poverty diet”, yet I have type 2 diabetes, hypertension, stage 3 kidney disease, neuropathy in hands, feet and legs, prostate cancer, a heart murmur and high frequency hearing loss. Guess you can have these things WITHOUT YOUR “poverty diet”. And. we have people living on YOUR “poverty diet”, even after Obama letting illegals come into the U.S. for eight years. How do you explain that?

          159. AKLady says

            LOL. Seasonal, immigrant workers are not paid minimum wage. Most are paid by the piece. When I picked grapes for Welch’s, minimum wage was $1.25 an hour. Welches paid $1.00 a flat. When I picked for Campbell’s, they paid $0.75 a bushel.

            In today’s economy, full-time farm works earn an average od $22,500/year. It is usually a 7 day work week. It is of the utmost importance to consider what they’re actually paid—not what they would earn if they worked full-time year-round, since very few of them do.

          160. usmcltc says

            Remind me again how many years ago you picked grapes for Welch’s. Times they have changed. First, you say “full-time farm workers” earn an average of $22,500 a year, and then you say very few farm workers work full-time year around. Are you confused or just trying to confuse ME?

          161. Joey says

            You’re not confused at all. It’s funny how those the lie and distort the facts seem to forget that they have to keep up with all the details of their deceit to remain effective. Whereas truth always remains the same.

          162. usmcltc says

            YOU should know!

          163. AKLady says

            Apparently, you missed the fact I provided the applicable minimum wage for the time period. I picked for Welch’s 50 years ago.
            Maybe you should have done the math. At $1.25/hr (8*40*52)

          164. usmcltc says

            You said that Welches paid $1.00 a flat. But you used the minimum wage of $1.25 and hour in your last comment. Were you paid by the flat or the minimum wage? If you were paid by the flat, how many flats could you average in an eight hour day?

            By the way, the minimum wage of $1.25 in 1966, the last year before the minimum wage went to $1.40 in 1967, is equivalent to $9.49 in 2017.

          165. AKLady says

            Maybe you should look at minimum wage laws.

            Alaska is the only state which has a single minimum wage. Tips still do not count toward the minimum wage. Alaska Statute (23.10.055) also requires certain exempt employees to be paid on a salary basis at a rate not less than twice the Alaska minimum wage based on a 40-hour workweek.

          166. usmcltc says

            “Trump’s actions have scared workers away”. You are assuming that “low-wage seasonal workers” are illegal. Who said that seasonal workers HAVE to be illegal immigrants? By the way, Trumps actions are meant to scare off Illegals, as that is what he was elected to do. Again, who said that seasonal workers HAVE to be illegals?
            What do you mean by those “incarcerated in the concentration camps”? If they are “incarcerated”, they CAN’T leave, right?
            Again, you attempt to justify allowing illegal immigrants to stay in our country. You should be ashamed.

          167. AKLady says

            You really have no idea what has gone on in this country.

            Are you aware that in 2009, Congress set a immigrant detention quota of 34,000 detainees per day in its custody? No too many people are aware of the “bed mandate”. Others deny it is a quota. The detention bed mandate was first inserted into the Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2010.

            For example, Arpaio ILLEGALLY and brutally detained Hispanics,. His TENT jail was a concentration camp. The Justice Department issued a report confirming that Sheriff Joe’s infamous Tent City used excessive force and gratuitously used pepper spray and restraint chairs.

            Insanity prevails as has been exampled by Donald Trump and Governor Greg Abbott The term “immigration detention” is really a euphemism for the network of roughly 250 prisons and jails around the country that house detainees.

            Most of those detainees are only guilty of being in the U.S. without authorization, which is a civil offense, not a crime. Immigration detainees are treated worse than criminals: Criminal defendants have the right to a speedy adjudication and to court-appointed legal counsel. Immigration detainees do not. .

            Not only is the detention unfair, in practice it is wildly expensive. The 2016 budget request for detention was $1.84 billion, a funding level that works out to about $5 million a day. The American Civil Liberties Union estimates that keeping a person in detention costs $161 a day; family detention costs $298 a day. Of the 10 largest immigrant detention centers in the country, nine are operated by private companies.

          168. usmcltc says

            First, I could care less about what happened in 2009.
            If Arpaio ILLEGALLY and brutally detained Hispanic, why wasn’t he indicted and tried? His only conviction was for not following a court order and for that he was pardoned, as he should have been. Liberals do not like his methods, as they like to coddle illegals for their votes. If illegal immigrants did not like to be treated as they were, they had an option – DON’T COME TO THE U.S. ILLEGALLY, simple, but I know that you would NOT agree with this option. Were they forced to come to the U.S. illegally?
            Obama had the solution to saving money concerning “detention” of illegals. His solution: Catch and RELEASE which resulted in most of those caught never to be seen again.
            The rest of your comment is just hog wash. By the way, when has people like you ever worried about spending federal money that we do not have. After all, you all approved of Obama raising the national debt by almost $10 trillion dollars. Oh, I forgot, that was Bush’s fault, right?

          169. Joey says

            Also there’s the proven fact that Liebama’s “catch and release” program has cost many innocent Americans as well as other illegals their lives. The thing with mr. ak, is those facts are perfectly fine with him, until maybe it comes knocking at his door. But then again he may consider the loss of one of his family or friends worth it. My money is on the latter!

          170. AKLady says

            Arrest quotas are illegal.

            Arpaio was arrested and tried. Trump pardoned him. http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/25/politics/sheriff-joe-arpaio-donald-trump-pardon/index.html

            Abuse by law enforcement is illegal. No one should be subject to physical and or mental abuse while incarcerated. Do you really believe individuals brought here as children should be punished for their parent’s crimes?

            Suggest you look at the National Debt.
            How many people re you will to pay the cost of detention for?
            Yes, I know, on this site, facts are “hogwash”.
            .
            Oh, and by the way, Congress spends the money.
            You elect Congress.

          171. usmcltc says

            Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio committed a crime by defying a court order to stop detaining suspected undocumented immigrants.

            If you support illegal immigrants being able to enter our country and stay here without fear of deportation, Arpaio DID commit a crime for defying a court order.

            If you believe that Arpaio was doing his job in support of current immigration laws by trying to identify ILLEGAL immigrants, Arpaio should have been rewarded for identifying ILLEGAL immigrants who should NOT have been in our country in the first place.

            “No one should be subject to physical and or mental abuse while incarcerated.” Cry me a river for these criminals. “Physical and/or mental abuse” is in the eye of the beholder. Do you think living in a tent or wearing pink clothing is abuse? Forget that I ask that question, as I already know your answer, being in favor of turning our country to illegal invaders.

            Legally, Arpaio did not have jurisdiction to detain undocumented immigrants. He was exceeding his authority. Only federal lawmen may enforce federal law.
            I support amnesty foe those brought here as children.
            I support DACA completely.
            .
            Confinement in the desert, without adequate access to water and sanitation, at temperatures reaching and exceeding 130F is torture as defined by the Geneva Convention. Pink underwear, I guess that is the most serous offense you care to recognize. What a joke. Are you really that brainwashed?

            If you want to support law breakers, so be it.
            If you want to coddle criminals, so be it.
            But, don’t complain when our country goes to hell in a hand basket, as you are the one of the people who caused it.

          174. AKLady says

            Arpaio was breaking the law.
            If you want to coddle criminals, so be it.
            But, don’t complain when our country goes to hell in a hand basket, as you are the one of the people who caused it.

          175. usmcltc says

            Yes Arpaio was found to have shown “flagrant disregard” for another federal judge’s order that halted his signature immigration round-ups. So, they found him guilty of criminal contempt of court.
            Sorry but I do NOT feel sorry for criminals who break the law. If YOU do, so be it, but, after reading your positions on many subjects, I would not expect anything different from you.

            Look at our country today:
            We have taken GOD out of schools and are turning our children into atheists.
            We have condoned women using abortion as a means of birth control.
            We have more racial divide than we have had in years.
            We use the work “hate” like it has never been used today.
            We have turned being “politically correct” into something that controls our lives.
            We have allowed our colleges and universities to become breeding grounds for liberal indoctrination.
            We condone disrespecting the symbols that have pulled us together as one nation, the National Anthem, our flag, and our country.
            We condone scandals involving members of our government and justify their illegal action.
            We disregard our own laws that are meant to protect our citizens and country in favor of people who break our laws and are NOT U.S. citizens.
            We protect non-citizens, many who have committed crimes, in places called “sanctuary cities”.

            I could go on, but you get the idea. Yes, the country that WAS great at one point is heading for a label of “3rd world”. Remember, ALL great nations/empires were destroyed from WITHIN. You and I are seeing the start of the end of our great nation, and it started in 1945.

          176. AKLady says

            Federal laws prohibit discrimination based on a person’s national origin, race, color, religion, disability, sex, and familial status. Laws prohibiting national origin discrimination make it illegal to discriminate because of a person’s birthplace, ancestry, culture or language.
            U.S. Code Title 42, Chapter 21-Civil Rights
            .

            Religious discrimination has been removed from PUBLIC schools. If a parent desires their child to have a religion based education, they are free to send them to a private, religion-based school.

            Abortion is not now, nor has it ever been “condoned” as a means of birth control. Roe v. Wade is/was a Constitutional Rights case. The financially well-to-do have always had legal access to birth control. Don’t even play the morality game. It does not fly.

            Race divide? You got that right5. A black man elected President brought the bigots out in droves. Equality seemed to have been achieved. It has frightened a lot of people. Racism is not just a white-black issue. It is white bigotry v. everyone else.

            Colleges have always been breeding grounds for rational thoughts. Liberal is defined by the :age” one lives in. Remember our Founders were not only Liberals, but also Traitors.

            Sorry, Free Speech is the law. Free Speech is a Constitutional Right. It is one of the reason’s you get to post your beliefs on this blog. Flag desecration and disrespect id part of that Right. I suggest you refer to: Texas v. Johnson, 491 U.S. 397 (1989), and reaffirmed in U.S. v. Eichman, 496 U.S. 310 (1990).
            Standing for the anthem is only a legal requirement tor the military
            Last, but not least, the words “should” and “may” are not the same as “must”.

          177. usmcltc says

            Religious discrimination has been removed from PUBLIC schools. Why do schools provide Muslims a “prayer room”?

            Abortion is not now, nor has it ever been “condoned” as a means of birth control. Come on, why do liberals want abortions “on demand”, and I do not hear liberals say abortions should NOT be used as a means of birth control. By the way, I am FOR legal abortions, as I do not want them to be performed in “back alleys”.
            Correction: “WE” did not elect a black man, as a biracial man was elected. People what to forget that his mother was white, so if he was the “first black man” elected President, it can also be said that Obama was just one in a long line of white Presidents, right? Face it, there is no group more racist that the blacks as a whole. Of course, YOU will think that I am racist just for making that comment, and you are the one who lives with the truth, as YOU see it.
            Look at our colleges today. There was a student from Berkley on the Tucker Carlson the other day professing that is was okay to NOT allow conservative to speak on his campus, because what that person conservative said was “hate speech”. He also said that the appropriate reaction to that conservative “hate speech” was mass demonstrations involving inflicting harm to the person(s) making those conservative “hate speeches”. What are our children learning in our colleges and universities today? It scares me.

          178. AKLady says

            Why do we have sex limited public toilets?

            With the current anti-Muslim atmosphere, what do you think would happen to Muslim children if a “prayer room” was not provided for them?

            Abortion on demand? Only if you have the money to pay for it. That has always been the reality of abortion.

            Correction, in America, the one-drop rule is a social and legal principle of racial classification that has been historically prominent in the United States. That is still thw “rule” in a significant portion of our population. This concept evolved over the course of the 19th century and became codified into law in the 20th century.
            For your information, there are 64 institutes of higher learning in and around the City of Berkley There is nothing illegal about refusing :so-called .conservatives” to speak at any one of them.
            Good night. It is past my bed time.

          179. usmcltc says

            Oh, now I get it. We MUST take OUR religion out of the schools, because it may offend someone, like an atheist, but we MUST provide a special room for Muslims so that they can practice THEIR religion. How racist and ridiculous. We can not say a prayer before a high school game, might offend, but Muslims can pray anytime that they want in their special room. Really makes sense, right?
            Money or not, the liberals still want abortion on demand.
            Of course, there is nothing illegal about refusing conservatives to speak at a college, in the liberals mind. BUT, let someone try to stop a liberal from speaking at a college, and all hell would break out with liberals DEFENDING free speech. See how that works?
            Good night. See you tomorrow.

          180. AKLady says

            No, you do not get it — not anywhere near getting it,

            1. Islam is the only religion that requires prayer FIVE times a day.
            2. The media has painted a bulls-eye target on Muslims.
            3. The prayer room prevents harassment.
            4. The prayer room prevents others from being disturbed by prayer requirements.
            5. The prayer room prevents Muslin students from being disturbed during prayer.
            6. The prayer room does not equate to teaching religion, or forced observance of religion.
            ..
            I do not approve of abortion. However, I will approve of a woman’s right to have an abortion — until the day I die. Pregnancy may be natural, but it is not “safe”. Factually, it is quite dangerous. That is especially true in parts of America. Those areas have maternal & infant mortality rates higher than third-world countries.

            Preventing? One does not speak at a college unless invited to do so.
            Why do you exaggerate? It damages you credibility.

          181. usmcltc says

            So, you support Islam prayer in schools, but you DO NOT support Christian prayer in schools. And people wonder what is wrong with this logic! Shame on you.
            I support abortions for the safety of the mother and the child, but I do not support abortions which are used as a birth control method (mother just does not WANT the child).
            Where have you been, as you obviously have not been paying attention to the conservative speakers who have been invited to speak, but due to the demonstrations by LIBERAL students and related security matters, that speakers scheduled speech was cancelled. It appears that liberals think the “freedom of speech” applied ONLY to them and NOT to anybody that disagrees with THEM. I think that I got that right.

          182. AKLady says

            Christians can pray any time they want.
            No one is stopping them.
            They simply cannot do so publically.
            .
            Prayer rooms permit Muslims to pray in private.
            .
            You seem to want equality, some of the time
            Depending upon who, and what it favors.

          183. usmcltc says

            So, where do Christians go to pray “in private”, the rest room? Muslims get a “special” room and Christians get the rest room. What is wrong with this picture?

          184. AKLady says

            Which Christian faith requires an individual to kneel, facing east, with their forehead touching the ground, five times a day?

            It is that requirement that is the basis for the prayer area. That requirement places the praying individual at risk for being attacked. With the amount of hate which has been taught to the American people, it is a safety issue not a religious issue.

            Every hospital I have ever been in has had a Christian/Jewish Chapel. Every airport I have ever been in has had a Christian/Jewish Chapel, every major university …etc, etc. etc. How many Muslim chapels have you seen provided? IS there even space provided for Muslim worship in the existing chapels?

          185. usmcltc says

            So, you are saying that we must accommodate Muslims OR they stand a “risk for being attacked”. Is it my fault that a particular faith requires members to kneel, face east, with their forehead touching the ground five times a day? NO. In 20 years in the Marine Corps, I NEVER knew of or had a Marine who had to pray five times a day, but then, I retired 34 years ago, before it became fashionable to be a Muslim in the United States.

            With the amount of hate which has been taught to the American people, it is a safety issue not a religious issue. Tell me again that many Muslims around the world DON’T hate America AND Americans.

          186. AKLady says

            I see, by your reckoning, it is acceptable to accommodate Jews and Christians but not Muslims?? Fashionable to be a Muslim in the U.S.? The first casualty of our Revolution was a Muslim — Crispus Attucks. Our first and longest ally is a Muslim country — Morocco.

            Apparently, you don’t know much about the Muslims in America history. Try theae historic contributors: Crispus Attucs, Yarrow Mamout, Estevanico, Norsereddin, “Hi Jolly”, Abdulrahman Ibrahim Ibn Sori, Ayuba Suleiman Diallo, Omar Ibn Said, Bampett Muhammad, Yusuf Ben Ali, and Peter Buckminster.

            When you have brought your history up to date, try more current Muslim contributors: Fazlur Rahman Khan, Shahid Khan, Ayub Ommaya, Ernest Hamwi, Shaquille O’Neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Farah Pandith, Ahmed Zewail, Aziz Ansari

          187. usmcltc says

            Why don’t you whip you BS on the families of the Muslims killed in the 9/11 Muslim terrorist attack on 9/11. I am sure that they would share you Muslim loving position.

          188. AKLady says

            What is the point of what you appears to intend as an insult?
            I’m sure American Muslims share my respect for Muslims who have provided significant contributions to America. Why would you choose to insult over a sample?

          189. usmcltc says

            When is the TRUTH an insult?

          190. Joey says

            Usmcltc, I respect you’re fortitude in staying on top of ak’s ideology. The mindset that’s been cleaverly chipping away at America’s moral values for decades. This is a person that lives in the biggest state in the country yet still has the lowest population, so it’s impossible for him to understand what it’s like to live in the real world like the rest of us. IMO the only perk Alaska has is that every citizen gets a check for $1,000.00 every year for living there.

          191. usmcltc says

            Thanks for the comment. I swear that I am not going to respond to AK, but she says such ridiculous things that I can not help myself.

          192. Joey says

            Well at least you are trying to keep ak honest. Although the “I know everything” mentality is a wall that is going to be very hard to tear down.

          193. usmcltc says

            What have I said that is an “exaggeration”?

          194. AKLady says

            We took religion out of classrooms.
            Christians may pray anytime they want.
            Legal abortion prevents unnecessary deaths.
            It is also a significant in reducing child abuse.

          195. usmcltc says

            Yes, and we took saying the Pledge of Allegiance out of the classroom, because it offended a FEW people, you know the minority. But, that is part of the new “politically correct” world.

          196. AKLady says

            It required members of three faiths to violate the tenants of their religion.
            Thus, it violated the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

          197. usmcltc says

            So, what is your point?

          198. AKLady says

            The Pledge of Allegiance violates the 1st Amendment.
            It is therefore not acceptable in our schools.

          199. usmcltc says

            Now I get it! You can say anything that you want to under the 1st Amendment, except yell, “fire” in a movie theater and the Pledge of Allegiance. Makes sense.

            “A 6-year-old boy took a knee during the Pledge of Allegiance at Wiregrass Elementary School in Wesley Chapel, Florida, on Monday morning.” https://www.fixthisnation.com/conservative-breaking-news/liberal-activists-help-harvey-victimsas-long-arent-white/#comment-3543353842 I guess those people in Wesley Chapel haven’t heard that saying the Pledge of Allegiance in school violates the 1st Amendment. Where is the ACLU when you need them?

          200. AKLady says

            No, you don’t get it, no even close.
            You can recite the Pledge, to your hearts content.
            A public school cannot require you to do so.
            A private school on the other hand, can do so.
            Understand the difference, now?

          201. usmcltc says

            So you are saying that a private school can require students to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in violation of the 1st Amendment?

          202. AKLady says

            You can say the Pledge to your heart’s content.
            No one is stopping you.
            Apparently, you cannot see the legal difference.

          203. usmcltc says

            But, but I thought you said that saying the Pledge of Allegiance violated the 1st Amendment. Are you saying that a private school can violate the 1st Amendment, but a public can’t? I thought a law was a law. But, what do I know?

          204. AKLady says

            There is a huge difference between public and private.
            Public serves the “public”
            Public cannot violate the 1st Amendment in regard to religion.
            Public cannot violate the Constitution.
            .
            Private serves only those who qualify for “membership”.
            Private requires a contract.
            Not all private schools allow prayer.
            There are some Constitutional applications that prevail upon private organizations, an example is the Civil Rights Act of 1965.

          205. AKLady says

            Private school education takes place under a contract.

          206. usmcltc says

            You are right, I can’t see the difference. According to you, “the law is the law”. However, now you say that you can “pick and choose” when the 1st Amendment is violated. Really?

          207. AKLady says

            You can on a personal level.
            You can on a private, contracted level.
            You cannot on a public level, unless given express permission to do so.

          208. AKLady says

            Private v. Public.
            Private is contractual.
            Pubic is legal.
            Some laws can cross the line, other cannot.

          209. usmcltc says

            No one is saying that these overpaid, wimps do not have the right to disrespect our National Anthem, our flag, our country and YOU and ME. But, there is a time and place for everything and a football game is NOT the place or time for a political statement. Hell, it is a game that made many, especially blacks, wealthy beyond their dreams, and they have no respect for the country that allowed them to parley a talent for playing a game into millions.
            But, I guess it is better that rioting, looting, burning buildings and cars, shooting each other, and confronting police and first responders. Maybe the blacks have learned something after all, as their previous unlawful actions did not gather much support for their disgraceful position concerning the law.
            You are right that “should” and “may” are not the same as “must”, as they only present options. If a person is not smart enough to take the RIGHT option, then that person is just showing his ignorance to the world. Question: Do YOU stand for the playing of the National Anthem and place your hand over your heart? There was a time, talking with you, that I would not have had to ask that question, but NOW I wonder.

          210. AKLady says

            I think the football field was a perfect place.
            They received excellent publicity.
            .
            Stop with the complaints about riots, etc., limited the present century. Rioting is a long-standing American tradition. Rioting has been very successful in the past. Try to remember the Boston Tea Party was part of a riot.

            No, I do not stand for the national anthem.
            There are a lot od things that I do not do anymore.
            Save the insults for someone you can impress with them.

          211. usmcltc says

            Of course you would think the football field is the “perfect place” to disrespect the National Anthem, our flag, our country and YOU and I, as your hatred for Trump rules your judgement. How sad.
            Do you not stand for the National Anthem because you CAN’T or do not want to. If the latter, you are an embarrassment to the rest of us loyal Americans who respect our flag and everything that it stands for. If you want to disrespect those things that represent our country, so be it, BUT don’t call yourself a loyal American.
            I am surprised that you condone “rioting”, but considering you total hatred for our President, it is understandable.

          212. AKLady says

            You make such astounding assumptions …
            Oh, and by the way, you took an oath o uphold the Constitution, yet, here you are insulting and having fits because someone exercised that right …
            Are you aware that followers of some religions do not stand for the anthem, do not sign it and do not salute the flag?

          213. usmcltc says

            Wrong again, as I NEVER have said that the demonstrators did not have a right, under the Constitution, to demonstrate. What I have said is that they are applying this right in the wrong place at the wrong time. A football game is NOT the place to disrespect the National Anthem and the flag which represent what this country stands for.
            Yes, and some groups do not pay into Social Security OR draw from Social Security. So what?

          214. AKLady says

            Those who do not pay, also do not salute.
            Further, they will not kill for America, even in the time of war.
            Frankly, I think a football game is an excellent time and place.
            Captive audience. excellent media coverage …

          215. usmcltc says

            Of course you would think that a football game is an excellent time and place to disrespect our country. You liberals really don’t care how your improper antics effect the rest of us who would never disrespect our country, but then again, it is all about YOU, right?

          216. AKLady says

            Disrespect our country?
            No. the country does that all on its own, every day, multiple times a day.

          217. usmcltc says

            I felt the same way during eight years of Obama’s administration, but when I said anything, I was called a “racist”. Now, things have changed, and people who do not support our president are called “haters”, and rightfully so.

          218. usmcltc says

            Yes, a captive audience to have to witness players disrespecting the flag and what it stands for. GREAT position, IF you are anti-American as you say.
            Remember: Free men stand, while slaves kneel. I guess we know why these ungrateful football players kneel, right?

          220. usmcltc says

            Yes, but there is a time and place for demonstrating. I am really disappointed in you, since you took an OATH, that you condone the disrespect these players show for our National Anthem, our flag, our country and you and me. It is called common sense, something these players have not shown as they knell like slaves.

          221. AKLady says

            Our Founders showed disrespect for their country.
            Trump has showed disrespect for America from the day he was sworn in.
            Where are you complaints about that disrespect?

          222. Joey says

            Great reply! However ak won’t get it. Am now waiting for he/she to call you a racist.

          223. usmcltc says

            You AND I will probably not have to wait long..

          224. usmcltc says

            You want facts!? Here is a fact that you can hang your hat on: If these illegal immigrants did not come to the U.S., there would be NO NEED for detention. For eight years, Obama has encouraged illegals to come to America, and through executive orders, has attempted to protect many from the fear of deportation. Why are liberals so bent on ignoring the legal ways to enter the U.S. and supporting illegals, including criminals, through sanctuary cities, and refusing to inforce our immigration laws?

            “How many people re (sic) you will (sic) to pay the cost of detention for? Answer: As much as it takes to rid our country of illegal immigrants who should NOT be here. When did the liberals ever worry about sending federal funds that we do not have?
            Flash: I DO NOT elect Congress, like you say. I vote for my state’s Senators and Representatives, and since Nevada is a blue state, many of them are NOT elected to Congress.

          225. AKLady says

            Why do you lie about Obama?
            DACA is simply humane. Children did not come here of their own choice. Children held guilty and/or punished for their parents actions?
            That defies and insults everything this Nation represents.
            .
            Improper entry is a misdemeanor. It is the equivalent of a traffic ticket.
            Enforce Immigration law against a infant carried here in its mother’s arms?
            Give me a break. Then again, Americans knew about the Nazi death camps for years before taking action — even when Americans were being murdered in those camps. Not just Jews, but American Catholics as well. I grew up with people who had numbers burned into their arms. I am a surgeon. I served at combat hospitals in Vietnam. When the work load permitted, we also treated civilians. We made time for children.

            Mexico’s border area has become a war zone. It is America’s drug market that fuels that war zone. People are being made slaves by drug-lords. Improper entry is fueled by that drug rule, people escaping the hell America has created.

            Oh, and foolish one, international aid is a lot less expensive than war. Not only did Afghanistan and Iraq cost $1 million, per day, each; they will cost the American public $trillions in military medical retirement and VA benefits for thw next 60+ years.

            Improper entrants pay taxes. They contribute over $11 billion/year to our economy. Can America survive that huge loss? Saint Reagan did not think so. Obama did not think so. The ignoramus, named Trump does not have sufficient knowledge to make that decision. He employs undocumented immigrants.

          226. usmcltc says

            Just when did I lie about Obama? DACA was the result of Obama’s executive order, as he knew that he could not get it passed if left up to Congress. He apparently wanted illegal immigrants to remain in the U.S. without fear of deportation. WHY? Because they AND THEIR CHILDREN were potential voters for the Democrat party, because they sure won’t vote for the Republicans, right? At least Trump sent the issue to Congress, something Obama would NOT do.

            Enforce Immigration law against a infant carried here in its mother’s arms?
            Give me a break. You give ME a break! “carried here in its (sic) mother’s arms”. There “dreamers average 25 years of age. They are far from being “carried in their mother’s arms”. You just can not get over the fact that they are here illegally and you want to reward them with the ability to remain here permanently, while ignoring our immigration laws because it is just like “a traffic ticket”. You know, THOSE laws that you say you live by.
            I have no idea where you are trying to go with you “Americans knew about the Nazi death camps…” or “Americans being murdered in those camps” or “I served at combat hospitals in Vietnam”. What does ANY of this ranting have to do with illegal immigrants in the U.S.?

          227. AKLady says

            DACA only applies only to those who were brought here as children.
            It does not apply to their parents at such time as
            the child becomes a legal adult.
            DACA is simply humane. Children did not come here of their own choice. Children held guilty and/or punished for their parents actions?
            That defies and insults everything this Nation represents.

          228. usmcltc says

            You are talking to the wrong person, as you should be talking to their parents who put them in the position that they are in today. Why would you blame ME for wanting to enforce our immigration laws, when it is the parents that you should be blaming. Those parents should be deported and they have the option to take their children with them or leave them here to be deported themselves. Simple!
            Of course, one California liberal Representative said it all when she saidthat illegal immigrant parents who brought their children to the U.S. in defiance of the law “did a great thing,” giving the country an infusion of successful young people. How self-serving and ridiculous to put illegal immigrants ahead of our own citizens, but what else would you expect for a true liberal.

          229. AKLady says

            Punish children for actions they had no control over?
            Crime requires intent.

          230. usmcltc says

            No, punish the parents for putting their children in an illegal position that the child had no control over. After all these parents did have “intent” to enter our country illegally, right? The parents are to blame and should be held accountable for their illegal actions of bringing a child into our country ILLEGALLY. What were they thinking? Did they think that THEY might be deported if caught, but those nice Americans would NEVER deport a child who was brought into their country illegally. Of course, these “children” now average 25 years of age, probably many are married and have “anchor babies”. Are these “children” now eligible for DAPA, as parents, if and when it is unbarred by the courts?

          231. AKLady says

            Tell that to Trump.
            He is going after the children that were given reprieves under DACA.
            They grew up Americans, The “Anchor Baby” label is simply a cruel label.
            Nice Americans, like you?

          232. usmcltc says

            Tell what to Trump, that the parents are to blame for their children’s illegal situation. He already knew, that is why he is opposed to DAPA.
            “They grew up as Americans”. BUT, they are NOT Americans, they just WANT to be. Of course, you would give them what they WANT, regardless, right? What have those dreamers done for our country except get a free education at OUR expense and demonstrate, which is NOT one of their RIGHTS, since they are NOT citizens. And, don’t give me that BS about dreamers serving in the armed forces, as about 900 or less than 1% of the 800,000 dreamers are serving in our armed forces.
            The “Anchor Baby” may be a cruel label, but it is an accurate one, and everybody knows what it means.
            “Nice Americans, like you”? NO, Real Americans, like me!

          233. AKLady says

            DACA was put into action.
            DAPA was not.

            Jesus Contreras helped rescue flood victims after Storm Harvey hit Texas. Now he faces deportation. Karla Perez and Oscar Hernandez set up phone hotlines and dispatched volunteers with trucks to help people in flooded areas. Sisters Karen and Paola Ramirez made food for their stranded neighbors.

            Omar Perez did three overnight shifts the George R. Brown Convention Center, volunteering to stack and unstack cots for thousands of newly homeless Americans.

            There are 900 Dreamers in the US Military, all of whom have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. They all have health care or language skills the U.S. military considers vital. Spanish is not one of those languages, however, Arabic and Korean are. Shall we throw them out? The 900 you brought up are those currently serving, not those who have served in the past …not those who are disabled veterans …

            More than 168,000 undocumented immigrants, here under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy, are employed in the education and health services sector. Do you really think there are sufficient Americans to fill those jobs? Those fields are currently under-served. DECA will only make it worse.

            No “Anchor Baby” is racist. It is not simply cruel, it is a dehumanizing label, it is a stigma being placed on innocent children. The label allows people such has yourself not to see those effected as individual humans.

          234. usmcltc says

            You are right that Mexico’s border area has become a war zone. It that because Americans are trying to enter Mexico illegally or is it because Hispanics are trying to enter the U.S. illegally and bringing crime and drugs with them? YOU know the answer to that, but it appears that you do not WANT to stop the cause of that war by wanting an open border.
            Where were you when Kennedy and Johnson, both Democrats, got us in that abortion called Vietnam? Iran and Afghanistan are child’s play when Vietnam is considered. On over 40 years later, that conflict is still costing millions, but no one wants to discuss that, since it was caused by Democrats.
            “Improper entrants”? Where did you get that one. Can’t you even call them what they are “illegal immigrants” or do you feel that you have to “sugar coat” them with you liberal “names” for them?
            You say that they contribute over $11 billion to our economy. But, you do not say how much they COST us. You have NO idea what Reagan thought, but that comment is further proof that you THINK that YOU know EVERYTHING. So, Trump employed illegal immigrants (not the liberal politically correct “undocumented” BS). According to you, that is a GOOD thing, as without jobs, how would these illegals contribute BILLIONS to the economy.
            By the way, according to your comment, every 11 million illegals would contribute “over 11 billion per year to our economy. So, we should open our border to illegals, as if we could get 55 million illegals in our country, they would contribute $55 billion to our economy annually. I guess that is how liberals think.

          235. AKLady says

            The border is a war zone because of America’s ever growing demand for illegal drugs. Funny thing, many illegals are self-employed, and provide jobs for other people. They pay taxes: state, local and even federal. Those employed using fake and/or stolen TINs cannot obtain tax refunds.

            .

            Deport the illegals and watch unemployment rise dramatically. The wages they spend ends. Even if they work under thw table, they spend money on food, clothing and shelter.

            Saint Reagan had a lot more economic sense that either Trump or you. Give him credit for that much. America cannot seal her borders:

            Canada – US border 1,538 miles
            Canada – Alaska border 3,987 miles
            Mexico – US border 1,933 miles
            US Coastline 95,471 miles
            Alaska Coastline 6,640 miles
            Total exposure 109, 569 miles

          239. AKLady says

            When will the numbers sink in? When will you realize we cannot physically seal our borders. That wall with Mexico, how many miles will it extend into thw ocean — on each side of the country?

            Are you aware that the existing border fences are about 5 miles from the actual border? Are you aware that they illegally bisect private property — US property, owned by US citizens. Are you aware that it splits a city — Nogales Arizona/Mexico? Are you aware that it runs thorugh the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument?

            Just asking. Those funny things called details matter. They destroy peoples lives they destroy families, they bankrupt bysinesswes …

          240. usmcltc says

            Here you go again ranting about something that makes NO difference. Who said that we WANT to “seal” our borders? YOU and nobody else, that is who. The primary problem is our southern border. What is so difficult for you to understand or is it that you do not WANT to understand.
            How far will it extend into the ocean? Who gives a sh–, as that question is just ludicrous.
            The rest of your comment is just rhetoric spewed by you to try and justify your absurd position on the wall.

          241. Joey says

            Usmcltc, it’s very easy for ak to deny and ignore the truthful facts. Alaska isn’t being attacked by the sick viciousness that is often crossing the southern border.
            I’ve had this conversation with ak.
            I live in central Texas, I watch the local news, I witness what’s really going on here.
            Drugs, human trafficking, gangs skyrocketing, burglaries everyday!
            Just read today that it costs the American government, by way of our tax $$ over $300 billion a year to cover illegal aliens Free health care, education, and food stamps. No wonder the national debt is $20 trillion dollars.
            Bottom line is you will never convince this mentality dense person to the reality of reality!

          242. usmcltc says

            Hey Joey, you are right. I had a General tell me once, “Never try to match wits with an unarmed person”. Sometimes I can not help myself and do not follow his advice. Thanks for your comment.

          243. Joey says

            You are very welcome. Ak has decided to block me. Lol, I keep asking questions he keeps refusing to answer. Just keeps repeating the same things.
            This idea that if illegal aliens weren’t here our economy would go bust was proven totally invalid yesterday with the report that it costs the American taxpayers $132. Billion a year just in free healthcare, education and law enforcement. Do they take low paying jobs? Sure they do. They come here with little or no education at all. They do have to work to continue to get the low cost housing and food stamps which by law is only available if they have no criminal record. A law that was totally ignored under the Liebama administration.
            Having a daughter that is a single parent living in the most expensive city in Texas that has spent her life struggling to keep a roof over hers and our grandson’s head has been turned down repeatedly for any assistance because it’s all going to the illegals really chaps me.
            The schools in Texas foregoing many things that every student could benefit from just so they can hire more Spanish speaking teachers chaps me. My sister and her husband lived overseas for over 30 years and they had to pay thousands of dollars so their son could attend an American teaching school. Here in the USA we have to pay for the illegals to go to school and be taught everything in Spanish. There is something really wrong with this picture!
            You are fighting the good fight and are keeping it real.
            However ak tries to spin it, you are the winner.

          244. usmcltc says

            You make some very good points and include good information. Thanks.

          245. usmcltc says

            Okay, I get it! You are for open borders where anybody that want to come to the U.S. can come with NO problem.
            I just say a report on TV tonight where a Federation for American Immigration Reform study stated that illegal immigrants cost the U.S. $135 Billion a year in medical, education and law enforcement costs. The report also said that illegals pay about $19 billion in taxes annually. Would you call that a GOOD deal?
            Another report stated that a study by The Center for Immigration Studies found that an illegal immigrant will bring in 3.5 other immigrants, family members (called cycle immigration). The report also said that LEGAL immigrants will bring in an average of 6 family members. Further, 24% of these people brought in by immigrants, both legal and illegal, are OVER 50 years of age and will shortly start drawing benefits, like Social Security.
            This last report also stated that giving 700 dreamers green cards and allowing them to remain in our country will result in “millions” of other family members entering the U.S..

          246. AKLady says

            FAIR has been identified as a hate group. It is known for is virulent and false attacks on non-white immigrants.

            The only government benefits an illegal can obtain are:

            Emergency medical care (which includes emergency labor and delivery)
            Emergency disaster relief that is provided for the short term and is not a cash payment

            Limited immunizations and testing, and treatment of symptoms of communicable diseases

            Certain community programs, such as soup kitchens or crisis counseling, as specified by the Attorney General

            Limited housing or community development assistance to those already receiving it in 1996

          247. usmcltc says

            FAIR is described as a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). What makes the hate list of the Southern Poverty Law Center different from the “burn book” a high school queen bee keeps in the 2004 movie “Mean Girls”? Answer: not much.

            The SPLC uses its list of designated hate groups in much the same way: to manipulate the lives of others, smear reputations, control personal relationships, and reap the spoils. The dynamic is the same, whether played on the adolescent scene or in the political arena. Both lists serve mostly as power-mongering tools. You forgot to mention that FAIR was called a “hate group” by SPLC.

            FAIR responded to this charge by SPLC by stating that there is no factual basis for the accusation; that FAIR has compiled a long record of mainstream credibility and respect on immigration issues and has always opposed discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, or religion; and that the accusation is an “act of desperation, resulting from the SPLC’s failure to convince the American people of their viewpoint.”

            Flash: Any group that does NOT agree with liberals and the ACLU is labeled a “hate group”. What are the groups that AGREE with liberals and the ACLU called? Hint: “Outstanding groups”. If you are opposed to letting unlimited immigrants, got legal and illegal, you belong to a “hate group”, as liberals love to put out false propaganda about their enemies. By the way the ACLU sucks!

          250. usmcltc says

            You forgot to mention the cost to educate their children, you know those too young to make a decision to come to the U.S. on their own, or the cost of policing, trying and holding some of these illegals in jails and/or prisons. Of course, this last one, policing, is not really costly, as in sanctuary cities, illegal and legal immigrants are SO willing to talk to the police. (ha, ha)

          251. AKLady says

            How about how much we pay those serving in our military?
            Oh, and by thw way, DREAMERS also serve on our police forces.

            Be glad it is not our enemies educating those children.

          252. usmcltc says

            Oh yes, but tell me how many of the 700,000 dreamers are serving in the armed forces.

          253. AKLady says

            More exaggeration.

          254. usmcltc says

            YOU have said that “dreamers” serve in the armed forces, and I ask you how many are serving in the armed forces. Your answer: More exaggerations. NOW, I know that you have lost it, as “exaggerations have NOTHING to do with dreamers serving in the armed forces, don’t you agree?

          255. AKLady says

            Sorry LTC, that number would be meaningless without knowing the number which were between the ages 17 and 31 when in the U.S., and were physically able to serve.

          256. usmcltc says

            Sorry AKLady, but your response in nothing more that an attempt to NOT admit that less than 1% of dreamers are serving in the armed forces. What does knowing the number dreamers between the ages of 17 and 31, which is a moving number each year, have to do with the number who are actually serving. That number would only tell you how many dreamers COULD serve, which means nothing. Even if 100% of the qualified men and women served, what would that number be. You can’t tell me that number, because it makes no difference when considering HOW MANY are actually serving.

          257. AKLady says

            You are still focused on the Southern border …

            I guess Trump and Sessions are going to solve the illegal immigration problem, while liberals weep over the lose of their beloved illegals.
            Attorney General Sessions Statement on President Trump’s Immigration Priorities Announcement

            Attorney General Jeff Sessions today issued the following statement on restoring the rule of law to a lawful immigration system:

            “For decades the American people rightly have pleaded with their government for a lawful system of immigration. They have asked for secure borders and an immigration system that serves the national interest.

            “Unfortunately, over the last several decades respect for the rule of law has broken down and immigration enforcement has been sacrificed for the sake of political expediency. This has made us less secure and it cannot stand.

            “Now President Trump has put forth a series of proposals that will restore the rule of law to our immigration system, prioritize America’s safety and security, and end the lawlessness.

            “These are reasonable proposals that will build on the early success of President Trump’s leadership. This plan will work. If followed it will produce an immigration system with integrity and one in which we can take pride. Perhaps the best result will be that unlawful attempts to enter will continue their dramatic decline.

            “I applaud President Trump and urge Congress to listen to the American people and swiftly pass these commonsense proposals into law. The Department of Justice stands ready to continue making our neighborhoods and communities safe and secure again.”

            Jeff Sessions is my cousin, I’ve know him since he was little.
            You will rue the day you rejoiced.
            The border is already double fenced and patrolled,
            .
            America’s borders and shores are too vast to be secured.
            What you demand will violate two sovereign nations.
            It does not serve their interests. It divides families.
            Nothing new there, that too has been going on for centuries.

            Prisoners are mistreated, denied medical care,
            many mentally ill are kept in solitary confinement.

            Every nationality hated the other, all living in their “neighborhoods.”
            They hated each other, but joined in hate for Hispanics, Blacks and Asians.
            I was stopped and threatened because I was driving through Whitefish Bay with a Black colleague in my vehicle. Can you imagine the fear she felt?
            No, I don’t suppose you can.

            Hungary has almost entirely halted illegal immigration—simply by building a wall.

            Two years ago, Hungary’s conservative government moved to seal up the nation’s border with Serbia. Because the frontier between Hungary and Serbia is also on the edge of the European Union, many illegal immigrants were heading through Hungary to enter the E.U.

            Hungary finally said enough was enough when it discovered that many of the terrorists who attacked several locations in Paris in November 2015—killing 137—had crossed the porous E.U. border between Hungary and Serbia.

            According to reports, the wall has done what it was designed to do. Since its construction, illegal immigration into Hungary has collapsed from a high of 391,000 in 2015 to just 1,184 in 2017—a 99.7% drop in only two years.

            “The system of technical barriers is the key to the success of border security, and without it, it would be impossible to stop the mass arrival of immigrants,” explained Gyorgy Bakondi, the Chief Security Adviser to Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

            “People who attack the fence are taking a stand in favor of allowing large numbers of people to enter the country without any form of control,” Bakondi added.

            The Hungarian wall’s proven effectiveness comes as President Donald Trump attempts to get his wall on the U.S.-Mexico border funded by Congress—a move that many Democrats say is a non-starter.

            Hungry’s border barrier is the same as that in the U.S. — a fence. .

            I thought that you were opposed to building a fence on our southern border. What am I missing?

          267. AKLady says

            We already have fencing at our border — double fencing, topped with barbed wire.

          268. usmcltc says

            Then why are the liberals saying that a “fence” would be TOO costly and do not good anyway?

          269. AKLady says

            It is Trump’s wall that is the current issue.
            You seem behind the times.

          270. usmcltc says

            “We already have fencing at our border — double fencing, topped with barbed wire.”

            “It is Trump’s wall that is the current issue.”
            You lost me. Are you saying that a “fence” takes the place of a wall, so we don’t need a wall?

          271. AKLady says

            A wall cannot do anything more than the existing fence.
            Try to remember the last “wall” .. the one in Berlin.
            The Fourth Reich began January 20, 2017.

          272. usmcltc says

            You are nuts! It is now confirmed. A person like you who professes to be an American implies that our current administration led by a democratically elected president is a Nazi organization – the “Fourth Reich”. YOU, of all people, who is SO self righteous and self absorbed in your righteousness have the never to compare Trump’s administration to Hitler’s Third Reich. You should be ashamed and should be reported for making such a subversive comment.
            One last thing. Remember, the Berlin wall was built to keep people IN and the wall on our southern border is going to be built to keep people OUT. Of course, I would not expect you to know the difference.

          273. AKLady says

            Hillary was elected through a democratic process.
            Trump was appointed by the Electoral College.
            Reported? The statement was and is made publically.
            If you cherish democracy and freedom, you best state paying closer attention to what is happening under this administration.
            I very clearly remember why the Berlin Wall was built.

            Usmcltc, tell ak to come to Texas and I will take him on a trip to south Texas. The fences are not 6 ft. Tall in many areas and most don’t have barbed wire. The only place where there’s really fencing is the border crossings.

            So, did Obama ever change his mind and ALWAYS speak the truth. Did Bush ever change HIS mind and always peak the truth. And, they were career politicians and knew what to say to get votes. Difference is that Trump is NOT a politician and says what he thinks, regardless of the outcome, as he apparently doesn’t care about getting votes or saying what people WANT to hear. THAT is WHY he was election, and liberals just can not stand that we do not have a career politician (Hillary) as our President.

          281. AKLady says

            The point I made was Trump’s dishonesty.

          282. usmcltc says

            Are you okay with Obama’s and Bush’s dishonesty? Would you approve of Hillary being elected, after she lied about her emails? Just wondering.

          283. AKLady says

            Hilary did not delete the alleged e-mails, her staff and legal team made the deletions. She believed the deleted emails were not work-related. She tasked her legal team to determine which of the roughly 60,000 emails still on her server were work-related before any further deletions took place.

          284. usmcltc says

            Hillary Clinton deleted a 2009 email in which she forwarded classified information to her daughter, Chelsea.

            The email was released on Friday by the State Department. It is one of thousands of documents recovered by the FBI from Clinton’s private email server.

            The Dec. 20, 2009 email chain, entitled “Update,” started with a message from Michael Froman, who served as a deputy assistant to President Obama and deputy national security adviser for international economic affairs.

            The email, which is redacted because it contains information classified as “Confidential,” was sent to Jake Sullivan, Clinton’s foreign policy adivser at the State Department, and several Obama aides. Sullivan sent it to Hillary Clinton who then forwarded it to Chelsea, who emailed under the pseudonym “Diane Reynolds.”

          285. AKLady says

            WHO SENT THE CLASSIFIED DATA TO HILLARY’S PERSONAL SERVER?
            That is the individual you need to be hounding.
            Why are you not demanding their prosecution?

          286. usmcltc says

            Come on AKLady, you are letting your emotions get the best of you. I have said it many times, but I will say it again. Anybody that sent or received classified information over unsecured systems should be held accountable, indicted and prosecuted in a court of law. That includes Republicans, Democrats, and “Others”.
            Does THAT answer your question?
            My question to you is: Why do you keep trying to justify Hillary’s actions when it is CLEAR (to everyone except YOU) that she sent and received classified information over her PERSONAL email system. By the way, YOU would make a piss-poor criminal prosecutor.

          287. usmcltc says

            “Clinton told the FBI that she directed her legal team to provide any work-related or arguably work-related emails to State; however she did not participate in the development of the specific process to be used or in discussions of the locations of where her emails might exist,” the FBI concluded in its investigative summary of the case.
            Did you get the part where she told the FBI that “she directed” her legal team (did they hold TOP SECRET clearances?) to provide any work-related, etc.? She directed means that she told them what to do, and they would not have deleted anything WITHOUT her approval, and YOU know it.

            Comey testified that the FBI “didn’t find any evidence of evil intent and intent to obstruct justice.”

          288. AKLady says

            Harp, harp, harp. Ignorance of law. piled higher and deeper.
            Every e-mail involves a minimum of two people.
            Why are you not screaming about the people who sent those e-mails?
            Maybe a little bigotry. hypocrisy bias, injustice …???
            .
            Crime requires intent. Without intent, there is no crime.
            The best case the government could have brought against a 68 yea old woman, acting upon the advice of legal council, would have been negligence.
            Then, they would have had to prosecute the authors of those e-mails.
            .
            Give it up.
            As with the immigration, you lack common sense in regard to the issues.

          289. usmcltc says

            So, every email takes a minimum of two people. I agree, and every body who mishandled those emails should be held accountable, indicted, and tried in a court of law. That include ANYONE, Republicans, Democrats and “Others”!

            That being said, Comey said in his statement, “For example, seven e-mail chains concern matters that were classified at the Top Secret/Special Access Program level when they were sent and received. These chains involved Secretary Clinton both sending e-mails about those matters and receiving e-mails from others about the same matters. There is evidence to support a conclusion that any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton’s position, or in the position of those government employees with whom she was corresponding about these matters, should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation. In addition to this highly sensitive information, we also found information that was properly classified as Secret by the U.S. Intelligence Community at the time it was discussed on e-mail (that is, excluding the later “up-classified” e-mails).”
            Did you get that? Comey said that seven emails were “classified at the Top Secret/Special Access Program level when they were sent and received”. He also said that any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton’s position,… should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation.
            Regardless of what Hillary said, Comey said that there WAS classified information sent and received over Hillary’s PRIVATE email system. Did you get that!?

          290. usmcltc says

            So, every email takes a minimum of two people. I agree, and every body who mishandled those emails should be held accountable, indicted, and tried in a court of law. That include ANYONE, Republicans, Democrats and “Others”!

            As a lawyer, you misrepresent the law to fit YOUR position and YOU should know better. Why do you do that?

            A court or jury, in determining whether a person has committed an offence,

            (a) shall not be bound in law to infer that he intended or foresaw a result of his actions by reasons only of its being a natural and probable consequence of those actions; but
            (b) shall decide whether he did intend or foresee that result by reference to all the evidence, drawing such inferences from the evidence as appear proper in the circumstances.

            Under s8(b) therefore, the jury is allowed a wide latitude in applying a hybrid test to impute intent or foresight (for the purposes of recklessness) on the basis of all the evidence.

          291. usmcltc says

            Comey said, “Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”
            Comey’s attempt to cover Hillary’s ass. Of course, they found that Clinton or her colleagues did not intend to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, BECAUSE Hillary did not think that anyone would ever find out about her PRIVATE email system (logical conclusion).
            Comey has lost ALL credibility, since it has now been discovered that he passed around a “letter” or “memo” giving Hillary a pass and NOT recommending that she held accountable for her actions BEFORE, I say again BEFORE, she was even interviewed by the FBI. It appears that the “fix” was in (logical conclusion), especially after Bill Clinton met Lynch to “discuss their grandchildren and golf”. Give me a break, I just didn’t fall off of that potato truck!

          292. AKLady says

            I REPEAT:

            Crime requires intent. Without intent, there is no crime.
            The best case the government could have brought against a 68 yea old woman, acting upon the advice of legal council, would have been negligence.

            THEN, THEY WOULD HAVE HAD TO PROSECUTE THE AUTHORS OF THOSE E-MAILS

          293. usmcltc says

            There is no way of getting around this: According to Director James Comey (disclosure: a former colleague and longtime friend of mine), Hillary Clinton checked every box required for a felony violation of Section 793(f) of the federal penal code (Title 18): With lawful access to highly classified information she acted with gross negligence in removing and causing it to be removed it from its proper place of custody, and she transmitted it and caused it to be transmitted to others not authorized to have it, in patent violation of her trust.

            Director Comey even conceded that former Secretary Clinton was “extremely careless” and strongly suggested that her recklessness very likely led to communications (her own and those she corresponded with) being intercepted by foreign intelligence services. Yet, Director Comey recommended against prosecution of the law violations he clearly found on the ground that there was no INTENT to harm the United States.

            Get Free Exclusive NR Content In essence, in order to give Mrs. Clinton a pass, the FBI REWROTE the statute, inserting an INTENT element that Congress DID NOT require. The added INTENT element, moreover, makes NO sense: The point of having a statute that criminalizes gross negligence is to underscore that government officials have a special obligation to safeguard national defense secrets; when they fail to carry out that obligation due to gross negligence, they are guilty of serious wrongdoing.

            The lack of INTENT to harm our country is irrelevant. People never intend the bad things that happen due to gross negligence. I would point out, moreover, that there are other statutes that criminalize unlawfully removing and transmitting highly classified information with intent to harm the United States. Being not guilty (and, indeed, not even accused) of Offense B does not absolve a person of guilt on Offense A, which she has committed.

            18 U.S. 793:

            (a) Whoever, for the purpose of obtaining information respecting the national defense with intent or reason to believe …

            (b) Whoever, for the purpose aforesaid, and with like intent or reason to believe…

          295. usmcltc says

            Did you get that “OR” reason to believe? That means that if the person had a “reason to believe”, intend is eliminated. By the way Comey said, Our investigation looked at whether there is evidence classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on that personal system, in violation of a federal statute making it a FELONY to mishandle classified information either intentionally or (THERE IS THAT OR AGAIN) in a GROSSLY NEGLIGENT way, or a second statute making it a misdemeanor to knowingly remove classified information from appropriate systems or storage facilities.

            Comey also said, that “…there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.” Get that – extremely careless – anybody other than a person named “Clinton” would be indicted and prosecuted for handling classified material, including Top Secret.

          296. AKLady says

            “…[Anybody] other than a person named “Clinton” would be indicted and prosecuted ,,,”

            Really? Then why don’t you tell me why they were not?
            Every e-mail involves at least TWO people.
            .
            Why was this “issue” not brought up until Hillary ran for President?
            Why do you HARP on just one person?
            Hillary is an easy target, can’t be missed. …???

          297. usmcltc says

            You answered you own question. Hillary ran for President. If she had not ran, the subject would probably not have been brought up, just like if Hillary had won, there would be NO investigation about the alleged collusion between Trump and the Russians.
            Why do I HARP on Hillary? Because SHE came an inch from being our President, that is why. It is obvious that she handled classified material in an irresponsible manner which you and I would never condone by one of the service people working for us. But, Hillary got a pass, I guess Comey thought she was too dumb to recognize classified information as SECRETARY OF STATE.
            Read my previous comments as to who I think should be held responsible for illegal actions concerning the mishandling of classified information.

          298. AKLady says

            Why was this “issue” not brought up until Hillary ran for President?
            .
            LOL, running for President did not change the “seriousness” of such charges.
            .
            Trump has repeatedly violated both security and the Constitution. Why are you not screaming your head off about him? Trump has violated the Emoluments Clause sice the say he was elected. His recent shifting “business” to his sons changed nothing in reality.
            .
            Frankly, it is quite doubtful that any civilian, who has nor worked in the government, would recognize “secure” material if it were not marked. Secretary of State is a civilian posting. It is an appointed position. Because it is such, training sessions should be provided.

          299. usmcltc says

            “Why was this “issue” not brought up until Hillary ran for President?” Come on, use your brain. You know as well as I do that, IF Hillary had NOT ran for President, her email scandal would not have seen the light of day, as NO ONE would have cared. Simple logic!
            IF Trump violated both “security” (whatever that is) and the Constitution, he should be held accountable and impeached. Good luck with that one!
            There you go again, trying to rationalize Hillary’s illegal actions. First, you say Hillary is a civilian, and as such, would probably not “recognize “secure” material if it were not marked. Then you say she is qualified to be our President. Some how your rationalization does not make sense. By the way, do you really think that the Secretary of State is not “trained” or “schooled” on how to handle classified information? You know better than that, I know.

          300. usmcltc says

            From Comey’s statement giving Hillary a pass: For example, seven e-mail chains concern matters that were classified at the Top Secret/Special Access Program level when they were sent and received. These chains involved Secretary Clinton both sending e-mails about those matters and receiving e-mails from others about the same matters. There is evidence to support a conclusion that any REASONABLE PERSON IN SECRETARY CLINTON’S POSITION or in the position of those government employees with whom she was corresponding about these matters, SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT AN UNCLASSIFIED SYSTEM WAS NO PLACE FOR THAT CONVERSATION.
            Is Comey saying that Hillary was too dumb to know an unclassified system is not place to be sending and receiving classified information? He might be on to something here.

          301. AKLady says

            Why do you keep ignoring the fact that every one of those e-mails involved more than one person. Why do you keep harping on Hillary? You keep leaving out the fact that the deleted e-mail were reviewed by legal council.

            Then there is Colin Powell’s personal server. Add his deleted e-mails . The IG report confirms he used his personal server for government business, John Kerry has also done so.

            Oh, and by the way, Clinton DID NOT have a government email account — So sayth the FBI. Oh, and vy the way, thw FBI also concluded that the “Top Secret” and/or “Classified” messages were not properly identified by the authors.

            Having been married to three military officers, I know how much “classified” data is discussed in the presence of civilians, namely wives and even children …. Oh, and by the way, all three have passed away, two KIA Vietnam. Do not even try to tell me you never made such a violation,

          302. usmcltc says

            You obviously are NOT reading my posts. I will state for the THIRD time that anyone, get that, ANYONE who sends or received classified information on an unsecured email system should be held accountable for their actions, indicted and prosecuted. You on the other hand have said that it would cost too much to prosecute ALL of these people. So much for living by the law.
            Hillary’s lawyers deleted her “personal” emails at Hillary direction, according to Comey. Do you think that they would delete ANY of her emails WITHOUT her permission. I think not.
            Okay, I would have no problem indicting Powell, Kerry or any other person who did not properly handle classified information. How may of the emails Powell and/or Kerry sent and received were classified Top Secret? Liberals do not want Hillary held accountable for her criminal actions, because “everyone else does it”. So much for living by the law.

          303. AKLady says

            Maybe the Powell and Kerry personal emails should be investigated. Maybe they could find 7 that held classified information. Oh, that’s right, no one can check Powell’s emails — they disappeared.

            In 2011, Jonathan Scott Gration as the new U.S. ambassador to Kenya wrote a memo to his staff authorizing them to use private email for daily communication. He exclusively used his private email for government business. Oh, that’s right, he resigned.

            Clinton committed no criminal actions. There was not intent. If you prosecute Clinton, they Powell, everyone her wrote to. everyone who wrote to Clintom, as well as Gration…etc., must vbe prosecuted. That should tire up the FBI, the DOJ and federal courts for years, if nit decades, to come.

          304. usmcltc says

            You bet, Powell’s emails disappeared like Hillary’s 30,000 “personal” emails “disappeared, some of which were classified.
            You really have a hang up on “intent”, but if you are right, why didn’t Comey state that they was no “intent” (to do what?) and that would have been the end of the story?
            I am really disappointed that you keep saying that “Clinton committed no criminal actions” when it is obvious that she DID though negligence. Remember the “OR”?
            So your argument is that, since indicting others for using private email systems for business would tie up the FBI, the DOJ and the federal courts for years, we should just over look Hillary’s illegal actions. Did I get that right? Tell me again how may of these “other” people sent and received CLASSIFIED information over their email systems. If they did, they should be indicted and prosecuted. Period!

          305. AKLady says

            Look up “intent” in a legal dictionary.
            You do not know why intent is required,
            why do you think 99% of Americas would?

          306. usmcltc says

            I am done with this “intent” sh–, as you would NEVER admit that Hillary ever did ANYTHING wrong, regardless of the facts, that is called “BLIND loyalty”, and YOU have it big time. But, that is your right to be so indoctrinated, that you can’t or refuse to acknowledge the truth. End of story.

          307. AKLady says

            There are legal opinions.
            There are personal opinions.
            “Blind loyalty” has nothing to do with it.
            Comey gave the correct legal opinion.
            .
            Given the choice between Hillary and Trump, I’ll pick Hillary.
            Trump is a legally-documented racist — over 200 DOJ cases.
            He is also two-faced, an employer of illegals.
            He has also been charged twice for money laundering.
            He also ran a fraudulent, unlicensed school.
            He is also a pathological liar.

            Yes, Hillary has dirt on her shoes, Trump walked thru the sewer.

            Comey gave the correct legal opinion. Just another example of “blind loyalty”, as Comey had NO intention of recommending that Hillary be indicted, and he just had to justify that action or lack of action. Of course you would agree with him. Anybody who thinks the “fix” was not in blind or simply refuses to look at Hillary’s actions and her lies.
            Well, you didn’t pick Hillary, as we picked Trump, live with it. I still can’t comprehend why a person like you would NOT support our Commander in Chief and use hatred to demonize our President. You should be ashamed of yourself for you comments.

          309. AKLady says

            Fact is not hatred.
            May I suggest you begin your education with:
            United States v. Trump, NY, 1973 — there are 0ver 200 more.
            Then there is money laundering: http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/22/politics/trump-taj-mahal/

          310. usmcltc says

            Fact is not hatred. Come on! You condone or rationalize EVERYTHING Hillary (blind loyalty) and blast everything Trump does (hatred). What more can I say? For your information, my “educations” is just fine.

          311. AKLady says

            Name one, just one discrimination charge brought against Hillary.
            Name one criminal money laundering charge ..
            Nane one criminal fraud charge ..
            ..
            You failed to sufficiently investigate the man you voted for.
            Now, you defend his criminal activity by pointing to someone who has never been charged, or found guilty ..
            You then insult someone who actually did look into your man’s past.
            There is a criminal sitting in the WH.
            His transgressions are coming out.
            It is not going to be pretty. He will make Nixon look like an angel.
            You didn’t do casino business without Mafia connections.
            You don’t build 1,400 rental units in NYC without Mafia connections.
            .
            I know what Hillary is. I also know what she is not.
            I also know what she has been falsely accused of.

          312. usmcltc says

            “Name one, just one discrimination charge brought against Hillary.” I can’t name one. You don’t understand that Hillary AND Bill are too BIG to indict, as they carry the name of Clinton, which is loved by the Democrats so much that they would cover up any of their wrongdoings.

            Trump IS our President, and it is time for you liberals to get over the fact that Hillary lost the election.

            “I know what Hillary is. I also know what she is not.” You know nothing of the kind, as you do NOT know what she has or has not done. You only think that you know her, because you believe what you WANT to believe. It is called blind loyalty.

            “I also know what she has been falsely accused of.” Again you do NOT know what she was falsely accused of, as you do not know if she is guilty or not. Face the fact, you are so biased in favor of Hillary and against Trump that you would only believe what you WANT to believe.

            I must respect the office Trump holds, not the unqualified man sitting in it.
            So sayth the 1st Amendment. I’m not on active duty ..
            Trump, the $billionaire backed by the Mafia, is not “too BIG” to indict?
            Trump, the racist, who played golf while Puerto Ricans died?
            Trump, the racist, that DOJ has sued over 200 times?
            Trump, who added $33 million to PR’s debt?
            ..
            Members of my family have been Clinton neighbors since Bill was a child.
            You are, unquestionably, biased when it comes to anything Clinton —
            both, not simply Hillary.

          315. usmcltc says

            Hey AKLady, I think you are living in the past, as you liberals had the chance to bring all of these things BEFORE the election, but did not. Now, after Hillary lost the election, you want to bring them up as examples why he should not be President. Flash: It makes no difference it YOU like it or not, Trump is our President and Commander in Chief, and you disrespect him out of hate.

            Well, my daughter has lived in Little Rock for many years. Ask her what she and her friends and family think of the Clintons. By the way you can’t ask the police officer and highway patrol officers about Bill Clinton, because most of them are DEAD.

            You are right, as I am biased against both Bill and Hillary. Bill was impeached by the House for lying to Congress, and he brought shame on the office of President.
            Hillary ran for President twice and lost the last election. Time for her to retire. And, yes, I care enough about our country that I can not condone ANYONE mishandling and failing to safeguard classified information including Top Secret.

            Plus: The Clinton Foundation?

            Donations to the Clinton Foundation nose-dived last year amid Hillary Clinton’s presidential run, pay-to-play allegations, internal strife and a black mark from a charity watchdog.

            Contributions fell by 37 percent to $108 million, down from $172 million in 2014, according to the group’s latest tax filings.

            The cash plummeted as Hillary Clinton left the nonprofit in April 2015 after announcing her ill-fated candidacy. The foundation became a major issue in the race, with Donald Trump vowing to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate it.

            Not only did contributions drop, but so did revenue the Clintons brought in from speeches. That income fell to $357,500 from $3.6 million in 2014.

            By the time the foundation’s Clinton Global Initiative held its annual conference in September 2015, many donors had bailed, including Samsung and ExxonMobil.

            With their power base eroded, the Clinton’s will need to double down on their efforts to get Chelsea elected to that NY Congressional seat asap.

          316. AKLady says

            Clinton was charged with obstruction of justice. The House impeaches him. However, the Senate AQUITTED him of all charges. In plain English, the Senate tried him and entered a decision of NOT GUILTY.
            .
            I know what y family thinks of the Clintons. They were good neighbors. Hillary was actually a decent cook, made fine southern biscuits.
            Trump is the Pathological Liar in Chief. Trump is the Narcisstic Personality Disorder in Chief. Trump’s onset of mental illness began April 2011 at the WH Correspondents Dinner. Trump was raked over the coals for all of his lies and birther slurs.

          317. usmcltc says

            Clinton was charged with obstruction of justice and perjury. The trial in the United States Senate began right after the seating of the 106th Congress, in which the Republican Party began with 55 senators. A two-thirds vote (67 senators) was required to remove Clinton from office. Fifty senators voted to remove Clinton on the obstruction of justice charge and 45 voted to remove him on the perjury charge; no member of his own Democratic Party voted guilty on either charge. Clinton, like Johnson a century earlier, was acquitted on all charges.

          318. AKLady says

            You required 157 words to repeat what I said with 98.
            “Sour grapes” …. ii that hat you call Russian election interference?
            .
            The full extent of that interference has not yet been documented.
            “Sour grapes” … is that what you call Electors violating their oath of office?
            .
            Clinton was impeached for charges less serious than the ones before us now. Comey was exploring the possibility of American involvement in the Russian plot, a treasonous offense. Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey was perhaps the greatest mistake in a century of political history.

            Trump.is a sociopathic liar, Maybe the day will come when you face fact and admit Trump is unfit to be President. The problem is not Hillary v. Trump

          319. usmcltc says

            Why do you keep saying the same things over and over again. Repeating them will not change the fact that the Clintons are “questionable” at best, and down right criminal at worst. And, what Trump did in the past is not relevant, as he was democratically elected and Hillary LOST. Case closed.

          320. AKLady says

            Trump is a legally-documented racist.
            Trump is a legally-documented law-breaker.
            He has been twice caught in money laundering schemes.
            He has been caught running a fraudulent university,
            .
            How can the “case” be closed?

          321. usmcltc says

            Where were you BEFORE the election, as Hillary LOST and Trump WON. Since that is a fact, you want to bring up this trash. Have you ever heard, “A day late and a dollar short”? All of what you say is OLD news, try living in the present and forget that YOU backed a LOSER.

          322. AKLady says

            This has nothing to do with the election.
            Why do you keep bringing it up?
            This is about what is happening in America — today, not a year ago.
            This is about a President that may be impeached,
            This is about a President that needs to be impeached.

            Trump is a legally-documented racist.
            Trump is a legally-documented law-breaker.
            He has been twice caught in money laundering schemes.
            He has been caught running a fraudulent university.
            He is a sociopathic liar.
            He suffers from malignant narcissism
            He is the most paranoid President since Nixon
            His petulant trade war with Mexico reveals that he values self-image even over national interests.
            He is the most self-deluded and dangerous American political figure since Aaron Burr.

          328. AKLady says

            I’ve seen all of the accusations against both Bill and Hillary.
            I’ve read the book/ The author admitted lying.

            I’ve seen the film. The New York Times reported that it was a poorly documented “hodgepodge of sometimes-crazed charges.”
            .
            United States v. Trump, NY, 1973, and the 200 like it, are legally-documented fact. I prefer fact.

          329. usmcltc says

            The author admitted lying. Show me your reference that proves that the author has admitted lying, as I do not believe you, since you have NO credibility.
            So you have seen the film, and of course, you do not believe anything in it is creditable. Why would I expect anything different from you, after all, you have make up your mind that the Clintons have NEVER done anything wrong. Nothing will ever change that, right?
            Isn’t it amazing that they can get SO MANY people to lie about poor Bill, even thought he was impeached by the House. Oh, I know he was not “found guilty” by the Senate, as the Senators did not have the balls to find him guilt. Another example of how the Clintons are protected by those friends in power. And, you have the nerve to keep citing something that Trump did 44 years ago as an example of why he should not be president. How presumptuous of you!

            What does THAT have to do with anything?

          332. AKLady says

            That is one of the lies which appeared in the first book.

          333. usmcltc says

            What lie are you referring to? And, how do YOU know it is a lie?

          334. AKLady says

            1. Hillary never worked foe Zeifman.
            2. Hillary was not fired.
            3. Those are the lies Zeifman admitted.

          335. usmcltc says

            I guess that you believe what you WANT to believe as fact. However, In addition, neither http://www.TruthOrFiction.com nor we could find any response from Hillary Clinton to Zeifman’s book or to his accusations. Don’t you think that Hillary would at least say that Zeifman’s comments were not true?

          336. AKLady says

            No, I would not expect an individual with a law degree to respond to a false accusation in that manner. To do so would be an informal recognition of the accusation. Public figures have little or no legal recourse when such falsehoods take place.

          337. usmcltc says

            Where have you been. People with law degrees respond all the time to both “false” AND “true” accusations. Since when did Hillary NOT respond to ANY allegation, true or false? Your answer is just another rationalization concerning Hillary’s lack of action. You are assuming that these accusations are false, because you do not WANT to believe them.

          338. usmcltc says

            But, again I ask what does this have to do with anything?

          339. usmcltc says

            Who cares, as this has nothing to do with our conversation, other than YOU trying to change the subject to something that makes no difference. I should expect you to attempt this.

          340. usmcltc says

            What “first book”?

          341. AKLady says

            Then one we are discussing, written by Jerry Zeifman

          342. usmcltc says

            No, we were NEVER talking about “the book”, as I referenced a youtube video and YOU responded, “I’ve read the book/ The author admitted lying.” Try to keep up with the conversation, rather that redirect it to something that YOU want to discuss.
            Watch the video if you want to comment on IT, and forget “the book” that was never part of the conversation.

          343. usmcltc says

            Despite the fact that the story was first broken by Peter Schweizer, author of Clinton Cash, back in 2015 (a story that was verified by none other than the New York Times), many in the mainstream media are in panic mode over the concrete ties that can be connected between Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, the Obama administration, and the Kremlin.
            Of course, Schweizer lied, as that is what conservatives do, right? Only liberals ALWAYS tell the truth, in THEIR minds.

          344. AKLady says

            You didn’t bother to check the link I provided, did you? No, you just went off with an insult about liberals. Jerry Zeifman, chief counsel of the House Judiciary Committee, admitted lying about Hillary.
            .
            Problem with your rant, it is Trump’s people who have been charged with illegal activity in regard to the Russians. Three so far, one who sang like a little birdie. Trump’s connections will surface. He will go down.
            .
            The Uranium One lie/rumor is old, It does not fly. The sale was approced by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). The Uranium One deal was not Clinton’s to veto or approve.

            Of the $145 million allegedly contributed to the Clinton Foundation by Uranium One investors, the lion’s share — $131.3 million — came from a single donor, Frank Giustra, the company’s founder. However, Giustra sold off his entire stake in the company in 2007, three years before the Russia deal and at least 18 months before Clinton became secretary of state.

          345. usmcltc says

            Funny how Democrats can readily indict Republicans, but Democrats NEVER get indicted. That is about to change, as Hillary, Bill, and the DNC are in deep trouble.
            Where is your proof that Trump worked with the Russians to influence the election. Oh, that’s right, the special prosecutor couldn’t find any proof so he changed the objective of the investigation. Investigate until you find SOMETHING, right?
            So, you approve of our government giving Russia control over 20% of our uranium assets? Did I get that right. Fact, Hillary was one of nine people, among other less important people, who had to approve or disapprove of the sale. If Hillary has raised a question or disapproved of the sale, the final decision would have had to be made by Obama. Of course, Bill being given $500,000 or the Clinton Foundation receiving $145 million in contributions from board members of Uraniu
