Sanctuary Cities Stand to Lose Billions in Federal Funding

1064

According to an analysis of federal grants performed by Reuters, the 10 largest cities in America are in danger of losing up to $2.27 billion in funds if they do not comply with President Donald Trump’s policies on illegal immigration.

The president signed an executive order this week directing the Department of Homeland Security to look at the money flowing to the nation’s sanctuary cities and report on any funding streams that could be cut off in the event of non-compliance.

“The American people are no longer going to have to be forced to subsidize this disregard for our laws,” said White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

From Reuters:

Reuters analyzed federal grant records to tally the estimated federal funding at risk among the 10 largest cities which totaled an estimated $2.27 billion.

The total amount remains unclear, as federal money can be filtered through state governments or granted directly to social-service organizations or other groups.

The numbers do not include federal money for law enforcement, which was excluded in the executive order, and programs like Medicaid, which are administered by state governments.

Though details remain vague, the order could jeopardize billions of dollars in housing, health, education and other types of federal aid.

Several cities in the top 10 – Boston and Los Angeles among them – have not officially proclaimed themselves “sanctuaries” for illegal immigrants. Even so, they have policies that prevent local officials from fully cooperating with federal immigration authorities.

Boston, for instance, has a directive in place that forbids police from detaining people based on their citizenship status without a criminal warrant. Depending on how forcefully the Trump administration pushes the issue, the city could be in danger of losing more than $65 million in federal funds.

Most cities with sanctuary policies are about as blue as America gets, and they are predisposed to opposing the Trump administration. City officials in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and elsewhere have already vowed to stand by their resident aliens and fight Trump in court if he strips their cities of federal grant money.

Some analysts say that, legally, Trump can only cut off funds if the original statute providing the funds came with a compliance clause. In other words, unless the funds are already tied to an agreement like, “You get this money only if you comply with ICE agents,” Trump is out of luck. Whether this is true or not, we may soon find out.

Even if it is, though, Trump has a number of other tools at his disposal, including what it perhaps his most powerful weapon: The presidential bully pulpit. The administration has already suggested publishing an ongoing list of crimes committed by illegal immigrants along with the cities that protect them. Once public opinion in these cities turns, Trump may not even have to threaten funding to gain compliance.

          3. Jim Smith says

            Odd that many still insist that Hillary, Kerry and Obama all voted in 2007 or 08 to fund and build a 700 mile ‘fence’ along the Southern Border and other enforcement activities. Does voting not count as voting in an alternative fact world? If you vote and say you didn’t does that count as what? According to some MSM Obama pulled the troops out of Iran by late 2011 in accord with a Bush agreement. Still 76K there in 2012 and 56K in 2013 and 28K in 2014. If the MSM declares they are not there, are they not there?

          4. gotabgood says

            I guess I will have to see those figures from someone other than JimBo

          5. Jim Smith says

            They on the Internet and found without too much difficulty. I should have referenced the site(s) but am too lazy to search again, at least right now. In addition, thousands of bombs have been dropped by the US within Iraq borders. The number of innocent bystanders who have died from Obama approved drone attacks has been estimated in the hundreds, although disputed. Some of the media is untrustworthy, pure and simple.

            Being a typical liberal lemming, Lee, gotabgood needs desperately to have something available to claim is offending and/or victimizing him so he can cry and whine about it. Just now that extreme pressure from sitting down is a convenient excuse for his being stressed. Your assessment is obviously correct.

          Ignorance must be bliss

  2. gotabgood says

    Some of his plans about the wall and military, I don’t think have received much thought as some of his other plans that he had to reverse.

    LEARNING TO WALK BACKWARDS

    1) Federals workers at HHS to halt external communication.

    Next day a reversal on that order.

    2) USDA will not release any public-face documents.

    That order given is rescinded.

    3) EPA cut climate page and all data from websites.

    Trump administration backs off plan to scrub climate pages.

    4) Federal civilian hiring freeze and for VA.

    Veterans, Veteran Groups called in, so now the VA is exempt
    for all hiring freeze.

    5) Administration yanked all the ads and public service
    announcements for Obamacare.

    Reversing course, Trump administration will continue
    Obamacare outreach.

    NEXT

    The wall! Congress? Where you getting the money? Is it in your budget? What about
    construction? It seems land owners are
    not too thrilled with wall on their property, are you ready to exercise “eminent
    domain”?

    Military! Going to
    make it bigger, more ships.. once again.. Congress, where you getting the
    money? How is your budget?

    PEOPLE

    He has promised tax cuts for the wealthy…. That leaves YOU,
    the TAXPAYER! You ready to step up to
    the plate for the wall you voted for? You
    want a bigger military? You ready to
    fork over the money? Wouldn’t that money
    be better spent on education and infrastructure? Instead of a useless wall and
    we already have the biggest military!

        3. Brenda says

          First of all why do we have have Mexico approval to protect our border?
          Secondly, Congress approved the “wall” several years ago but no action was taken. I think the Bill was entitled “SAFE” act.

          1. Mark Shaw says

            Exactly

          2. gotabgood says

            We do not have to have Mexico’s permission… but if we want them to pay for it, then we do have to have their permission….

            I am not aware of any bill that got congress’s approval on about building a wall.

        4. Mark Shaw says

          First fuck Mexico and uh wrong there’s already legislation in place for 700 miles of a fence depending on how you describe a fence that is not defined.

          1. gotabgood says

            Executive order… legislation… a tweet… whatever.. it has to be passed by congress…… where is the money coming from???? YOU THE TAXPAYER..
            You don’t yet get it… The president from Mexico doesn’t play the childish games that out president does….. He said NO!…. Trump says 20% tax….. YOU WILL END UP PAYING THAT TAX!!!!!….. careful what you wish for….. you got it!! A loose cannon with the attention span of a yo yo.

          2. Mark Shaw says

            All you need to do is look into it both bush and Obama in the first term pushed provissions through congress already. What is wrong with putting our country first for once. Aren’t you tired of our country and it’s taxpayers being taken advantage of. I don’t understand your argument if there is truly one. I’m not against immigration as long as it’s legal. Is it really to much to ask? The same can be said about Muslims I’m not against them if they art trying to kill us but there is truth in all of the claims look at other countries that are now literal war zones because of terrorism. Is that the fate of our great nation. We’re do you draw a line in the sand to keep you self and your countrymen safe and preserve our freedom and way of life.

          3. gotabgood says

            You have to start realizing something…. and when you can admit that bush damn near sunk America…. then we can talk… when Obama took over… he took over a bombed out nation…. no money, wall street was broke.. no manufacturing, no housing, no jobs and we owed EVERYONE… bush paid for nothing! Now from where we were and until this day, you have to admit we are a whole helluvalot better off now than we were then.
            As for time putting America first… the talk is good…. his actions are not! He is tied into Russia… his negotiation skills ….. if you look at what happened.. Carrier is moving out….. Trump comes along and says I will give you 7 million dollars of my taxpayers money if you stay…. Carrier says I will keep 800 jobs here and ship 1300 jobs to Mexico… Trump said deal…………. Really? That is his skills of negotiating?

            Mexico and Trump are slapping each other in the face.. so Trump threatens to invade Mexico….??????
            He insults Australia, He insults England, they even took a vote on letting him come into country. He has pushed China back into a corner, He even sent Israel a warning… but Russia and him are tight…..careful..

          4. Mark Shaw says

            Look we can go at this all day bush inherited a mess from Clinton who’s economic Ballon was bursting and he was signing NAFTA. you can say what you will because because in the end it’s crap I stand Behind Trump and the promises that he has made and is keeping to the American people that put him in office. I can assure you that every day I am grateful for this out come and the tears that are adding to the water source of this great nation.

          5. Mark Shaw says

            And ps I don’t care if the Mexican government don’t pay for the wall as long as it gets put up. Hell I’d send a donation if I thought it would go faster.

        5. GODBlessRealAmerica says

          First MEXICO will pay for the WALL & it will be great !!!!!! 20% tax on on goods and
          services from Mexico..we will BUILD A STRONG WALL to protect America & Yes Mexico will pay for the Wall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          BUILD THAT WALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    3. aschark says

      Use the money saved from the sanctuary cities to build “The Wall” until we recoup the money from Mexico. That’s a two-fer: the sanctuary cities will finance the building of “The Wall!”

      1. gotabgood says

        You do know the judges have put a ban on everything Trump has proposed concerning immigrants?
        Plus you start threatening the two biggest contributors to the government you many end up on the dirty end of the stick… and a lot of red states will suffer… not thinking things through are you?

        1. aschark says

          THIS IS A REAL EYE OPENER.
          ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

          Wouldn’t it have been interesting if, at some point during the presidential campaign, if one of the candidates asked, “Oh, by the way, has anyone in Washington, D.C., ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952?”

          I did not know of this act until recently, but it has been a law for almost 65 years.

          Here are the historic facts that would seem to indicate that many, if not most, of the people we elect to work for us in Washington do not have the slightest idea of what laws already exist in OUR country.

          After several terrorist incidents were carried out in the United States, Donald Trump was severely criticized for suggesting that the U.S. should limit or temporarily suspend the immigration of certain ethnic groups, nationalities and even people of certain religions (Muslims).

          The criticisms condemned such a suggestion as, among other things, being un-American, dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous and racist.

          Congressmen and senators swore that they would never allow such legislation, and our president called such a prohibition on immigration unconstitutional.

          As Gomer Pyle would say, “Well, surprise, surprise!”

          It seems that the selective immigration ban is already law and has been applied on several occasions.

          Known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 allows for the “suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by the president, whenever the president finds that the entry of aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States.

          “The president may, by proclamation, and for such a period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens, immigrants or non- immigrants, or impose any restrictions on the entry of aliens he may deem to be appropriate.”

          Who was president when this was passed?

          Harry Truman. Who do you suppose last used this process?

          Jimmy Carter, no less than 37 years ago, in 1979 to keep Iranians out of the United States.

          But he actually did more. He made ALL Iranian students, already in the United States, check in with the government. And then he deported a bunch of them.

          Seven thousand were found in violation of their visas, and a total of 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the USA in 1979.

          So, what do you say about all of the criticism that Donald Trump received from the Democratic senators, representatives and the Obama Administration?

          Additionally, it is important to note that the McCarran-Walter Act also requires that an “applicant for immigration must be of good moral character and in agreement with the principles of our Constitution.”

          Therefore, one could surmise that since the Quran forbids Muslims to swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, technically, ALL Muslims
          should or could be refused immigration to OUR country.

          McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952

          THIS IS A REAL EYE OPENER (for sensible people, anyway)
          ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

          Wouldn’t it have been interesting if, at some point during the presidential campaign, if one of the candidates asked, “Oh, by the way, has anyone in Washington, D.C., ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952?”

          I did not know of this act until recently, but it has been a law for almost 65 years.

          Here are the historic facts that would seem to indicate that many, if not most, of the people we elect to work for us in Washington do not have the slightest idea of what laws already exist in OUR country.

          After several terrorist incidents were carried out in the United States, Donald Trump was severely criticized for suggesting that the U.S. should limit or temporarily suspend the immigration of certain ethnic groups, nationalities and even people of certain religions (Muslims).

          The criticisms condemned such a suggestion as, among other things, being un-American, dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous and racist.

          Congressmen and senators swore that they would never allow such legislation, and our president called such a prohibition on immigration unconstitutional.

          As Gomer Pyle would say, “Well, surprise, surprise!”

          It seems that the selective immigration ban is already law and has been applied on several occasions.

          Known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 allows for the “suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by the president, whenever the president finds that the entry of aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States.

          “The president may, by proclamation, and for such a period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens, immigrants or non- immigrants, or impose any restrictions on the entry of aliens he may deem to be appropriate.”

          Who was president when this was passed?

          Harry Truman. Who do you suppose last used this process?

          Jimmy Carter, no less than 37 years ago, in 1979 to keep Iranians out of the United States.

          But he actually did more. He made ALL Iranian students, already in the United States, check in with the government. And then he deported a bunch of them.

          Seven thousand were found in violation of their visas, and a total of 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the USA in 1979.

          So, what do you say about all of the criticism that Donald Trump received from the Democratic senators, representatives and the Obama Administration?

          Additionally, it is important to note that the McCarran-Walter Act also requires that an “applicant for immigration must be of good moral character and in agreement with the principles of our Constitution.”

          Therefore, one could surmise that since the Quran forbids Muslims to swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, technically, ALL Muslims
          should or could be refused immigration to OUR country.

            Many differences that you compare Trump to Truman and Carter.
            Truman was ending the war with Japan…. many things happening at that time with Germany and Japan…. not excuses just the way things were. The bomb affected all and not sure if there would be a civilian out break or not.

            Carter was in the middle of a heated confrontation with Iran, they did after all have 52 Americans hostage. And it was over a year… so there were some very tense moments during that 1 1/2 years..

            Trump does not have to free hostages and he didn’t just drop an atomic bomb or someone………………YET!!

          2. aschark says

            I was not comparing Trump to Truman and Carter. I was referring to a Law that protects American citizens, and 2 Presidents who used that Law.
            The Japanese “camps” began in 1942, not quite the end of the war. Source:
            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internment_of_Japanese_Americans
            Trump has no hostages, so he can’t free them. If holding a felon illegal is a hostage, that’s your interpretation, but what he’s trying to do is to protect American citizens in this Country. Trump’s “hostage” will either be held in jail (to be deported upon release) or deported. I don’t think Trump will be asking a ransom from his ME “hostages.”

    Make those cities pay back last years money on top of that

    1. aschark says

      Use the money saved from the sanctuary cities to build “The Wall” until we recoup the money from Mexico. That’s a two-fer: the sanctuary cities will finance the building of “The Wall!”

      1. Mark Shaw says

        I love it

      2. Statesman Patriot says

        And conservatives need to boycott these cities. Don’t vacation or do any business there. Let’s talk with our money.

        If federal money is cut off, the wall can be built with that money or at he very least, a great start to reducing the deficit.

  5. Morton99 says

    It is an empty and absurd threat. If Federal funding were to be cut in New York, and we had another 9/11 as a result of a lack of funding – Trump would face a primary impeachment charge for failing to keep Americans safe.

    1. Brenda says

      Read up on the powers a President has, especially when it pertains to illegal aliens and immigration. And just how is allowing illegal aliens making the country safe?
      And by the way, where was your objection when Obama ended the wet foot dry foot policy?

      1. Morton99 says

        I am not discussing illegal immigrants. I am simply saying that if Federal funding were to be cut AND NY had another terrorist attack that Trump would feel the fallout. The reason for cutting it suddenly becomes irrelevant.

        1. Brenda says

          Weren’t you? The reason behind the fund cuts is that NY city wants to remain a sanctuary city in defiance of Federal Immigration Laws.
          As for the fallout Trump would have should there be another 9/11, in today’s environment of hate and violence, of course every finger would point to Trump. Look at the “protest” surrounding the “Muslim ban”, something Obama did without any outcry from any of these so called concerned citizens.
          What is all comes down to, is that anything and everything Trump does is bad, but the overreach and dictatorial orders of Obama were completely acceptable. For example, there were no protest when Obama put a 6 month freeze on Iraqi “refugees”.

          1. ABO says

            Brenda, liberal ideology is built on a foundation with hypocrisy, dishonesty, deceit and hatred as its cornerstones.

          2. Brenda says

            On this we can agree.

          3. Morton99 says

            Yes – everything that Trump does is incredibly naive and quite stupid. And by way of correction, Obama never banned Iraqi refugees, he simply required another stringent check on them.

          4. Brenda says

            Which is exactly what Trump has done. Required more stringent checks by placing the same ban on travel. The only difference is that Obama did not announce his actions.

          5. Morton99 says

            No, contrary to fake news, he never banned nationals from any nation. He required more stringent checks when they arrived.

          6. Brenda says

            Will get back to you on this. Need to look up the 2011 action Obama took.

          7. Mathew Molk says

            re you kidding…It waould be Bush’s fault.

            But if there was another attack of the magnitude of the World Trade center the entire mid east would be turned into a glass bottomed self lighting parking lot.

          8. Brenda says

            And the way those idiots are acting, maybe something on that magnitude would wake them up.

            Jeez, assbag,,,I thought you knew everything about the US.

            Go look it up asshole.

          3. anibanib says

            You tell me smart asse……….impress me with your intel……..use both brain cells this time

          4. Morton99 says

            Yes he was horrified at the idea of peeping toms looking over the stalls to see if the lady stood or sat.

        3. Brenda says

          What you fail to realize is that any action to cut funding of sanctuary cities is directly tied to illegal aliens. The reason for cutting the funds is relevant. If NY refuses to comply with Federal Law, then it on the Mayor and the Governor. We are either a country that honors the rule of law or we are a country that refuses to abide by the law. It really is not that complicated.

          1. Morton99 says

            If the violation of law is your issue then why is Donald Trump violating the Constitution by banning nationals from nations that have never supplied terrorists in the USA, on a basis of national identity (against the law), and not banned terrorists from a host of other nations that HAVE committed acts of terrorism in the USA ? It is both illegal and illogical.

          2. Brenda says

            Suggest that you read Federal Law 8 USC 118(f) , the SAF ACT, and IRRIRA 8 USC 1224(A)(3)(A).
            The seven nations mentioned have a high likely hood of committing acts of terror; per directive by Obama in 2011 and current intelligence data. While Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, were not mentioned, they should have been included.
            There is no Constitutional basis that says the United States must allow anyone into the country. And, in fact, the judges that issued the stay did so based on two Amendments that are written for American citizens ONLY. Our Constitution was not written to provide protection for non-citizens and the courts pension for awarding Constitutional rights for non-citizens needs to stop. I can tell you that no other country grants their constitutional rights to non-citizens.

          3. Morton99 says

            Suggest you read The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 which forbids all discrimination against immigrants on the basis of national origin.

          4. Mathew Molk says

            Look wizard,,,There is a VAST radiance between a legal immigrant and a refugee.

          5. Brenda says

            Then someone failed to tell Obama that when he refused to allow Christian Syrians entry. The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 does not apply in the case of refugee status. We are not dealing with the ordinary immigrant, but with people seeking refugee status. Two different things.

          6. Morton99 says

            You make a distinction with no legal basis. In fact the refugee can get priority holding a UN passport. Essentially there is no difference under US law between the two. You will see this argued in the SCOTUS almost certainly if in fact they agree to make a ruling. I think they may be inclined to duck and accept the high court ruling because under current rules they cannot overrule themselves without a majority and they are even less inclined to make legislation invalid unless a constitution argument is clear. But even more daunting for Mr Trump is that the SCOTUS does tend toward a conservative interpretation in any ruling if that choice is available – and his confrontational style has already upset enough Senate Republicans to cause real anger; with I would be very inclined to think is shared by the Court.

        4. D Hall says

          WHY???? It’s the CHOICE the Gov of those states ,THEY are putting ILLEGALS BEFORE AMERICANS.

      2. anibanib says

        Are you really that blind as not to see what the USA is doing out in the World, remember the USA is less than 5% of the World, yet she does just what she like in almost all countries, the USA invades and destroys countries, murders their Citizens…….many are Muslim countries…………..so its no surprise thát the USA is not on their favourite friends list……..do try to remember that the USA does not decide Everything in the World, even if you perhaps Think she does

        1. ARIC Milam says

          So by your reasoning because we are only 5% we must let the world bully us? Is that it? We have supported almost every nation on earth! When Europe was invaded by nazi’s those putz just gave up, we had to come in and save the CS’s at the cost of American lives, then we supported them for years. So who is the blind one?

          1. anibanib says

            What are you babbling about………..the World is not bullying the USA, the USA is THE BIG BULLY…….””supporting”” a fancy Word for taking over countries withimpunity, the uSA has military stationed on 182 countries across the World,now if that is not bullying………and who are the PUTZ in Europé, be very careful how you use your description of Europeans………and whilst Britain was putting up a good show allby herself, you Yanks were bust building weapons for the Nazis, thru FORD, Prescott Bush and several US Banks……and the US did not support THEM, the monies were loans…..Marshall Aid…….repayable with interest………..read and learn your own history arrogant Yankie bum

          2. ARIC Milam says

            And you cockney idiot knows more, we left your tyrannical country because you thought you could conquer the world, enslaving Hong Kong, India and many more. Take a look at your own poor history. We Yanks kicked your King Georgie boy and bailed you out when the Nazis were bombing your little tiny country! This world needs to stick to being invaded by the Muslim threat and leave us to protecting our own. Cowards!

          3. anibanib says

            Yet Another Yankie jerk??? who Thinks cos some write in English, then if they are not American, then they must be British……………..at least the British speak and write British English, not like yanks who appear to make up Words as they go along

          4. Mathew Molk says

            If you want to check up on it, the current common British accent was induced by people copying the northern Brit Aristocratic people. some time after the Revolutionary war when we sent the Britts packing.- the widely used true British accent used by most of England of the 1700s was very close to the sound of the people currently living in Indiana and Illinois.

            There you go, Full of shit again…Too much bubble and squeak for lunch today?

          5. anibanib says

            Still assuming I am British……….why is that???????

          6. Mathew Molk says

            Like the guy said in the movie,

            “We got rid of all the misfits in our country, – We sent um’ back to England.”

          7. Mathew Molk says

            Like the Martial plan? We never got paid. not even the interest.

          8. anibanib says

            What is the MARTIAL PLAN…………..you really are stupid

        2. Brenda says

          No, but I do doubt your own degree of stupidity and blindness. Yet, for all the ills you have listed, the one thing you have failed to mention is that whenever there is a disaster in the world, whether it is man made or natural, many of these so called invaded and destroyed countries look to America first for aid.
          Do I deny that America has not done some very stupid and useless things in the past, no. We got involved in Korea, at the request of the Koreans, we got involved in Viet Nam, at the request of the French, we got involved in Afghanistan at the request of the Russians, our first encounter with Iraq was at the bequest of Quatar and the U.N.,. As much as you would like to blame the worlds destruction on the U.S,, much of our actions were either requested by the countries involved or by the United Nations.

        3. pineapple says

          “…the USA does not decide Everything in the World,..”

          However, it appears that the USA is paying for everything in the world, especially with all the foreign aid it provides to other countries, many of whom hate the USA.

          The USA is also paying more than it’s fair share of the U.N. budget, even though most of the other countries vote against every thing the USA supports.

          The USA also pays more than it’s fair share of the NATO budget, even though NATO was formed to protect other members.

          The USA is 20 trillion dollars in debt and can’t afford to continue supporting the rest of the world as it has been doing.

          1. anibanib says

            Your figures and assumptions are wrong, either you are guessing oryou read what the US govn wants you to read………….just one Point, theUSA total govn debt is over $66 trillion……….http://www.usdebtclock.org/

          2. pineapple says

            The government national debt is about $20 trillion, much of which is foreign aid to other countries who consider the U.S as an enemy.

          3. anibanib says

            USA total debt $66.8 trillion

        4. Mathew Molk says

          And you know why? Because we can ,,,,and there is nothing anybody can do to stop us. You are only not dead because we don’t want you that way. Don’t push the point because we can change our mind when ever we want.

          1. anibanib says

            Babbling again………””Because we can””………..doesnt Always work out as the USA Thinks it should.
            About a decade ago, the American government sent over a number of secret CIA agents to my country, unannounced kind of………they were looking for s few US military deserters from Germany.
            CIA agents have a special dress code, black suits and Always wearing sunglasses………our poilce soon spotted them, rounded them up……..regardless of them saying they had diplomatic immunity…….they hadnt…….they were escorted to the next plane to the USA……….and the funny thing is, you wont find this anywhere on the internet…….too embarressing for the USA……nobody plucks with my country and the time is 08.13

      1. Morton99 says

        You are probably confused with Iraq and Syria. There have been NO successful terrorist acts in the USA by foreign terrorists while Obama was in office. The terrorists were all home grown Americans.

          1. Morton99 says

            Tell what to them ? That Americans murdered them ?

        2. pineapple says

          Influenced and indoctrinated by ISIS terrorists, who Obama refers to as ISIL.

          Obama conflated the Fort Hood massacre as “work place violence “, since he refuses to address Muslim terrorists as the terrorists that they are.

          1. Morton99 says

            Major Hassan is an American born in the USA. In fact he did exhibit all the symptoms of work place violence and his murders were those of a lone wolf.It was terrorism but totally irrelvant to the current issue banning non Americans.

        3. pineapple says

      THAT is a choice you stupid mayor has made,putting ILLEGALS BEFORE AMERICAN CITIZENS
      Don’t blame President TRUMP .BLAME the stupidity of the IDIOT in charge of YOUR STATE

    5. Mathew Molk says

      2 words cupcake,,,Bull and Shit.

      With your logic he should be charged with NOT rounding up all the wetbacks and deporting every one of them.

  6. Jake says

    In 2011, Barack Obama suspended refugee admissions from Iraq after terrorists were caught living in Kentucky after entering as refugees. He suspended the refugee program for 6 months.

    This week, Donald Trump did the same, expanding this ban to 6 other Middle Eastern countries.

    It is perfectly within the President’s rights to suspend immigration from specific countries. 8 USC Section 1182(f) specifically gives the President the power to suspend immigration to any class of aliens that he deems would be detrimental to the United States if allowed in.

    Yet last night, an Obama-appointed Federal Judge blocked Trump’s refugee ban executive order from going into effect.

    U.S. District Judge Ann M. Donnelly ordered a halt to any removal of refugees or others who hold valid visas to enter the United States. Basically, she ordered that anyone that Obama approved for entry must be allowed in.

    What Donald Trump did is completely legal and constitutional, yet one judge can essentially rewrite the immigration laws that your predecessors wrote…

    To combat Barack Obama’s refugee program, you and your colleagues turned to the American Safety Against Foreign Enemies (SAFE) Act. This bill would block refugee admissions unless the State Dept. and FBI certify background checks and conclude that the refugee poses zero risk to the United States.

    This legislation passed the House with a veto-proof super majority in late-2015. The only reason it wasn’t put on Obama’s desk is because of a Harry Reid filibuster.

    The ball is now in your court. One branch of government has executed its lawful and constitutional authority to regulate immigration. An activist judge has intervened and re-instated a previous administration’s policies.

    It is up to Congress to settle it.

      But this is not the first time that the US has banned immigrants from
      its shores. Over the past 200 years, successive American presidents
      have placed restrictions on the immigration of certain groups.

      Here are six occasions when laws have been passed to restrict some people from entering the country.

      Exclusion of the Chinese

      President Chester A. Arthur.

      Signed on May 6, 1882.

      The Chinese Exclusion Act, which banned “skilled and unskilled
      labourers and Chinese employed in mining” from entering the US for 10
      years, was the first significant law restricting immigration to the
      country. It came at a time when the US was struggling with high
      unemployment and, although Chinese made up a very small segment of the
      country’s workforce, they were nevertheless scapegoated for its social
      and economic woes.

      The law also placed restrictions on Chinese
      who were already in the US, forcing them to obtain certificates in order
      to re-enter if they left the country and banning them from securing
      citizenship.

      The act expired in 1892 but was extended for a
      further 10 years in the form of another – the Geary Act. This placed
      additional restrictions on Chinese residents of the country, forcing
      them to register and to obtain a certificate of residence, without which
      they could be deported.

      This changed in 1943 with the Magnuson
      Act – which allowed some Chinese immigration and for some Chinese
      already residing in the country to become naturalised citizens, but
      which maintained the ban on property and business ownership. This came
      at a time when China was a US ally during World War II.

      Jewish refugees during World War II

      President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

      As millions of
      people became refugees during World War II, US President Franklin D
      Roosevelt argued that refugees posed a serious threat to the country’s
      national security. Drawing on fears that Nazi spies could be hiding
      among them, the country limited the number of German Jews who could be
      admitted to 26,000 annually. And it is estimated that for most of the
      Hitler era, less than 25 percent of that quota was actually filled.

      In one of the most notorious cases, the US turned away the St Louis
      ocean liner, which was carrying 937 passengers, almost all of whom are
      thought to have been Jewish, in June 1939. The ship was forced to return
      to Europe, where more than a quarter of its passengers are thought to
      have been killed in the Holocaust.

    3. Margaret MacGregor says

      Didn’t Obama also bomb the heck out of these countries and refuse to take any refugees?

        1907. Title 8, U.S.C. 1324(a) Offense

        Title
        8, U.S.C. § 1324(a) defines several distinct offenses related to
        aliens. Subsection 1324(a)(1)(i)-(v) prohibits alien smuggling, domestic
        transportation of unauthorized aliens, concealing or harboring
        unauthorized aliens, encouraging or inducing unauthorized aliens to
        enter the United States, and engaging in a conspiracy or aiding and
        abetting any of the preceding acts. Subsection 1324(a)(2) prohibits
        bringing or attempting to bring unauthorized aliens to the United States
        in any manner whatsoever, even at a designated port of entry.
        Subsection 1324(a)(3).

        Alien Smuggling — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(i) makes it an offense
        for any person who — knowing that a person is an alien, to bring to or
        attempts to bring to the United States in any manner whatsoever such
        person at a place other than a designated port of entry or place other
        than as designated by the Commissioner, regardless of whether such alien
        has received prior official authorization to come to, enter, or reside
        in the United States and regardless of any future official action which
        may be taken with respect to such alien.

        Domestic Transporting — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(ii) makes it an
        offense for any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of the
        fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States
        in violation of law, transports, or moves or attempts to transport or
        move such alien within the United States by means of transportation or
        otherwise, in furtherance of such violation of law.

        Harboring — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii) makes it an offense for
        any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an
        alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation
        of law, conceals harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to
        conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place,
        including any building or any means of transportation.

        Encouraging/Inducing — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) makes it an
        offense for any person who — encourages or induces an alien to come to,
        enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard
        of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in
        violation of law.

        Conspiracy/Aiding or Abetting — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(v)
        expressly makes it an offense to engage in a conspiracy to commit or aid
        or abet the commission of the foregoing offenses.

        Bringing Aliens to the United States — Subsection 1324(a)(2) makes
        it an offense for any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of
        the fact that an alien has not received prior authorization to come to,
        enter, or reside in the United States, to bring to or attempts to bring
        to the United States in any manner whatsoever, such alien, regardless of
        any official action which may later be taken with respect to such
        alien.

        The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act
        (IIRIRA), enacted on September 30, 1996, added a new 8 U.S.C. §
        1324(a)(3)(A) which makes it an offense for any person, during any
        12-month period, to knowingly hire at least 10 individuals with actual
        knowledge that these individuals are unauthorized aliens. See this Manual at 1908 (unlawful employment of aliens).

        Unit of Prosecution — With regard to offenses defined in subsections
        1324(a)(1)(A)(i)-(v), (alien smuggling, domestic transporting,
        harboring, encouraging/inducing, or conspiracy/aiding or abetting) each
        alien with respect to whom a violation occurs constitutes a unit of
        prosecution. Prior to enactment of the IIRIRA, the unit of prosecution
        for violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2) was each transaction, regardless
        of the number of aliens involved. However, the unit of prosecution is
        now based on each alien in respect to whom a violation occurs.

        Knowledge — Prosecutions for alien smuggling, 8 U.S.C. §
        1324(a)(1)(A)(i) require proof that defendant knew that the person
        brought to the United States was an alien. With regard to the other
        violations in 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a), proof of knowledge or reckless
        disregard of alienage is sufficient.

        Penalties — The basic statutory maximum penalty for violating 8
        U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(i) and (v)(I) (alien smuggling and conspiracy) is a
        fine under title 18, imprisonment for not more than 10 years, or both.
        With regard to violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(ii)-(iv) and (v)(ii),
        domestic transportation, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or
        aiding/abetting, the basic statutory maximum term of imprisonment is 5
        years, unless the offense was committed for commercial advantage or
        private financial gain, in which case the maximum term of imprisonment
        is 10 years. In addition, significant enhanced penalties are provided
        for in violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1) involving serious bodily
        injury or placing life in jeopardy. Moreover, if the violation results
        in the death of any person, the defendant may be punished by death or by
        imprisonment for any term of years. The basic penalty for a violation
        of subsection 1324(a)(2) is a fine under title 18, imprisonment for not
        more than one year, or both, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(A). Enhanced
        penalties are provided for violations involving bringing in criminal
        aliens, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(i), offenses done for commercial
        advantage or private financial gain, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(ii), and
        violations where the alien is not presented to an immigration officer
        immediately upon arrival, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(iii). A mandatory
        minimum three year term of imprisonment applies to first or second
        violations of § 1324(a)(2)(B)(i) or (B)(ii). Further enhanced punishment
        is provided for third or subsequent offenses.

          wow.

        2. wildeagleone says

          Lock them up if the law is violated and those that violate it perp marched into their private little living spaces

          1. Tiger says

            They keep hollering Constitution etc showing what they don’t know. They will learn. Sometimes private little living places will get one to do some introspection.

          2. OfcShane (MGySgt USMC) says

            People fail to realize that the 14th Amendment’s quote “nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws,” is being respected when “illegal immigrants” are deported. There are laws against illegal immigration and the penalty is criminal charges, fines, and potential deportation. The meaning of “due process,” is NOT “trial by jury,” but merely fair treatment by the executors of the law. If all illegal immigrants are equally offered opportunity to become citizens or be jailed then deported — then that IS due process. Now if you say, illegal Muslims and Mexicans have to go but illegal Buddhists and Frenchmen are exempt, then that is a violation of the Constitutional protections afforded to non-citizens. I do not believe that this is the idea here — I believe that Trump wants ALL immigrants found and vetted equally, and all illegal and criminal immigrants arrested and deported. That is due process and completely adhering to the Constitutional Amendment.

          3. Tiger says

            Excellent analysis and I only wish that everyone in this country had this understanding. They don’t and those in command of the news and the sheltering of their sheep from Truth, won’t allow it and these conflicts will continue. But it goes deeper, there has been a full blown effort for 40 some odd years, to brainwash our children from kindergarten upwards and now even in our colleges, that America is evil, they don’t even know the Constitution or any of our governing documents and they prove it by supporting these Mayors of Sanctuary cities. The Mayors surely know the laws but they keep the Agenda of the Progressives going. If indeed the sheep knew these facts there would be no protestors. We have a huge job ahead of us to undo the damage done all these years. There are generations of youth, we saw them in these protests and they are a danger to our Republic.

            The Muslims hollering are being backed by CAIR and also Muslim Brotherhood, both with tarnished reputations of supporting Terrorism. Now CAIR was under investigation, has had many of it’s leaders deported and imprisoned for backing Terrorists, Obama stopped those investigations. Muslim Brotherhood has been deemed a Terrorist organization and banned form most countries that are our allies, in the ME. Yet Obama had CAIR advisors and he had Muslim Brotherhood in six major positions in our Homeland Security. They best to be careful because they don’t want to go against Trump’s lawyers who will expose their backgrounds in a court of law, even if they don’t go to court my guess, since Dr. Ben Carson on Trump’s team and wanted the investigations into CAIR reopened that it will be and that Muslim Brotherhood will be named a Terrorist organization and shut down.

            Trump is going to blow the lid off much in this country and he will be totally justified in doing so because the Swamp is filled with turbaned snakes. Notice how BLM is quiet, no daily cop killings, etc. They know the law back in town.

          4. silvereagle says

            O/B/ tainted the the W/H, bringing in the Muslim Brotherhood as well as others.

          5. Tiger says

            I believe Trump is on that because the State Department people did not resign Trump fired them and they were full of Muslims. I think the investigations on CAIR will begin again also since Dr. Ben Carson was onto them. Also Muslim Brotherhood is deemed a terrorist organization and not allowed in our allies in the ME so bet they get the nomenclature socked to them really soon.

          6. OfcShane (MGySgt USMC) says

            Thanks Tiger, and you are correct — although BLM is still going crazy pretty much as their standard operating procedure dictates. Did you see the Berkeley riots? “Death to the White House! All white people must give all their money, their cars, their houses, and their property to the black indigenous people of America… then kill ALL the white people!” There is even a story about an aging white hippie that got his head beat in with a pipe — he was there to support BLM! The look of confusion on his face is a sad reality. Yeah buddy, you are the enemy no matter what you write on your shirt. Also, it is ironic how the liberals today pick and choose what minorities they support. If you are a whiny victimhood black, a welfare suckling illegal, a terrorist supporting Muslim, a “Slut Walk” feminist, or (and you must be) in one of the “flavor of the day,” LGBTQ activist groups — then you are not their friend if you are “just” black, “just” an immigrant, “just” a Muslim, “just” a feminist, or “just” gay…

            Oh no! That isn’t how this works — that’s not how any of this works… LOL!

            There are now “enemy” blacks, immigrants, Muslims, feminists, and gays now as well. Basically, anyone that exhibits any common sense and forethought to their actions is an enemy of the popular forerunner groups. If you don’t drink the liberal Kool-Aid Jim Jones style, you are an enemy… If you don’t virtually deify these groups and pledge 100% support to them and their cause without any questions or concerns as to the directions and or why — only then are you an ally — one question or concern — enemy. I have always been left-leaning myself, in a moderate fashion (on the fence), but not anymore… not with this nonsense, because it is just that… nonsense…

            Here is a most interesting article by of all people a Leftie who is beginning to question the violence and seeing it for what it may very well be, Civil War. You and I know what these people want and who runs them. They might get that bloodshed.

          8. OfcShane (MGySgt USMC) says

            Amen to that Tiger! RAWR!

            Thank GOD there are still some out there willing to “call a spade a spade.”

            Yes, these are raiding parties (protesting for a 70″ plasma and a new pair of NIKEs) and their behavior is an act of aggression against the US’s sovereignty. The UN Charter Article 2 states: [that the] threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state [are the grounds of an act of aggression – typically internationally from state to state but this can also arise from one established political party to another]. Before the UN Charter, an act of war was when one party stated that certain actions (or inactions) would be considered an act of war against the presenting party and would result in hostilities. I.E. BLM threatened the city of Berkeley to cancel the Milo speech or they would take that lack of action as hostility towards BLM. The result was the bedlam that followed calling for the killing of Trump (and the whole White House — “juss get em all outta der.”), the surrender of all goods, money, and property owned by American whites, then the subsequent death of all whites, even if they meet the demands (so it would seem). They then chanted that “This is war!” Today they had thousands of protesters form the word “RESIST!!” on a beach in San Francisco, and tonight at the Grammy’s a dozen artists took shots at Trump encouraging more civil disobedience and violence.

            I was reading an absolutely abhorrent article earlier about some speech that Meryl Streep gave, where she, indirectly but intentionally, praised dissenters and their rioting and encouraged them to step it up a notch before their freedoms (and happiness, as if that is some external thing) are taken from them.

            I grew up in a household where you didn’t whisper behind closed doors — ANYTHING, that would insinuate harming the president or killing people in general. It was just wrong. These people shout it from megaphones in the streets and are met with praise and acknowledgment from Hollywood and the media, politicians are citing these maniac terrorists like they have a legit point of view to be considered! This all revolving around a violent generation, raised during a dark time in our nation, under a president that granted credibility to terrorist regimes by sitting down with them and discussing their demands for peace in the Middle East! Those actions Obama performed stamped a seal of approval on terrorism as a legitimate form of governing party. These kids grew up mired in this nonsense! Going to school in a stripped down education system designed to create workers capable of saying “do you want fries with that,” and counting change. They were raised by crack/heroine/meth addict parents living on welfare in HUD housing while the kids were raised in the schools by the communist liberals teaching them Karl Marx. I don’t even know why people are scratching their heads wondering — “How did we get here? The 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s were so cool!” THAT! That is how we got here. Complacency! That and living in a system of monetary slavery where you only get to spend two or three days a year scheduled with your children or you can’t keep the lights on. All these things likely paid for by Saudi Arabia — our toxic “friends” in the Middle East.

            The truth is, we need to begin preparing to fight back — literally — because if this goes on much longer our enemies will use the confusion to slip in undetected and wreak serious havoc on our nation! You thought 9/11 was bad, look at Iraq and Afghanistan — think that can’t happen here? Think again! It is starting now, look out the window.

            The American tax-paying citizen needs to take to the streets and stand with law enforcement and the national guard — like the people in England and Germany have been doing with the criminal refugee issue — and do what the US has always done best… kick ass and take names. If there was consequences of their actions they would think twice — right now, not so much. They burn Baltimore to the ground and they get lauded as heroes. Beat up elderly people and “ahhh it’s just a game.” Rob Girl Scouts at gun point and most media outlets will mention it but never speak your race, “police need assistance in locating a male suspect, between 15 and 21 years, 5′ 4″ to 5′ 9″ with a thin build possibly wearing dark clothes and hooded sweatshirt.” You make a joke about their religion and they will kill your family, but are peaceful people.

            You or I forget to pay a $15 traffic ticket within 30 days and the court issues a warrant for your arrest, suspends your driver’s license, and you wind up spending 3 days in jail and paying thousands in fines… Why, because you aren’t in a “protected” group. Yet you are in the racist and supremacist group! Not that it even means you have to perform an act of discrimination or prejudice anymore — nope… Caucasian of any variety = racist. It’s cut and dry.

            It is simply reverse supremacy. There is no equivalence in the equality being preached by these scum! There is no point to these random acts of violence — other than certain people want to see middle/upper class, white (or white sympathizing, because being an “Uncle Tom” or “house nigga” is worse than white — it is a “race traitor” but whites are the racists), Christian/Jewish (or tolerant to religions not in the “protected” clause), law abiding, tax paying, Conservative (but not solely limited to – i.e. the liberal hippie that got his skull cracked by BLM), — they just want to see “non-protected” American citizens getting kicked around and suffering. That is the only point. Bloodshed and feigned vengeance for illegitimately perceived wrongs. “THANKS OBAMA!”

            They have been erroneously taught that these people are taking something from them that they are entitled to without ever earning it. They think that it is “Free”dom in the U$ and they want the handout. They seem to honestly believe that the US government just gives working families those new cars and nice homes in decent neighborhoods. Not that those people busted ass in school and then in their jobs to earn it — who would ever do that!? They believe that their mother was given a crappy Section 8 HUD house in the ghetto because she was black (or brown, or Muslim, or a Democrat, pick your flavor) and you have a nice house in a gated community because that is what the government gave you — because you are white (that is how it really works — no really, look it up on CNN). Whenever someone threatens the handout or refuses to increase it when demanded, they are going to go bananas, and to those that believe if we budget to increase the handouts it will subside — but only for a little while… if at all.

            It is time we end it — and honestly, I wasn’t a fan of Trump for president, but clearly God knew better than me and has a plan and let’s face it — he is the right kind of hard nosed M___F__er that we NEED right now. He isn’t afraid to do the hard thing (a leader) and he is ready to be the bad guy if that is what is needed to straighten the issues out. We, as Americans need to back him on that because clearly we weren’t going to handle it ourselves (or it wouldn’t have reached this point).

            Many may jump to call that rhetoric racist, but I simply say, no that is just realist.

            Disclaimer: Of course I do not mean ALL, or even MOST blacks, minorities, Muslims, Hispanics, people in poverty situations, those collecting welfare, or on section 8/HUD housing plans, etc. I am talking about the specific ones that are carrying out all this nonsense in the name of a false war that they wrongfully created as an excuse to behave like animals in the name of their gods Chaos, Pillage, and Loot. No one else — do not misread me.

            If I could give you one thousand ups I would. I am so proud to read posts like this, from so many on the sites. You have hit every nail on the head, put it into the wood and steadied it with a sledge hammer. This is a post that needs to go viral. If I were on any Social Media I would see to it that it did.

            As to where we are going, my guess standing with our National Guard, our Police and carrying our guns to take them out because they certainly are going to just what you say if we don’t. Yes Trump what we need and the adversity to him shows he did indeed rile up every snake in every corner of this country and the world. They are spitting up their own guts so mad. Yes he is the man.

            The Left has turned Communist and the RINO are just as bad.

          6. AfricanTraveler1 says

            The left has certainly NOT turned communist. They are advancing the American ideals that make this country great. Trump is destroying these ideals.

          7. Tiger says

            LOLOLOLOLOLOL do you know there was no Democrat candidate this election? Did you know that O was a Progressive? Did you know that the Progressives are aligned with the Socialist/Communist in this country and that both Hillary and O were Saul Alinsky admirers and followers? Do you know who Saul Alinsky is? No you don’t know anything. You don’t even know that everything Trump is doing is undoing the damage that the Muslim loving, American hating O did and that the Constitution and our laws on immigration back everything he is doing? Did you know that O let 10 more Gitmo detainees go free before he left, pardoned a terrorist bomb maker, gave clemency to Manning who put our soldiers in danger and that he tried to give 221 million dollars to Hamas and it was frozen?

            You are full of crap and it is that head filled with crap that shows it’s ugly face, and I do mean ugly in the violent protests during this election, by your side not Trump’s, the ugly signs and pussy hat and vagina hat wearing stupid and vulgar women who protested carrying signs that said;” We want the same rights as guns” ” I am raising my sons to be feminists” and were represented by filthy sluts like Madonna, who is now under investigation? Of course not.,

          8. silvereagle says

            Well said tiger. A/T is surely a misguided individual

          9. Tiger says

            I just realized posting to a die hard liberal who still thinks Hillary won the Popular vote and never conceding that 31 states went for Trump, that the problems truly are FAKE news. I was sending her video after video of Trump rallies across America with over 20,000 people at each one and then I put up a side by side video of Trump vs Hillary rallies where it was so plain up in your face he was the Bomb. He was going to win. But because they never got that news, because what they got was only the beginning of rallies where the crowds had not come yet they thought he was loosing and the video they showed of her rallies they made it look like there were thousands.

            So between the FAKE polls and the FAKE video they were stunned and even Hillary said if I am so far ahead in the polls why is Trump winning all these states. I had an awakening and it dawned on me this is why they continue to riot, complain and want to take us out they actually believe she won. Amazing.

            Look at this article I never dreamed that O did so much damage to our treasury.

          10. Tiger says

            Oh and thank you. But it won’t sink in.

          11. Tiger says

            Oh shucks forgot to give you the article. Holy molly not on the ball today.

          12. America1st says

            MSM failed to report the fact that Hillary was endorsed by the American Communist Party. Progressive = Communist

          13. Tiger says

            This is truth you speak.

          14. teachersaide says

            The LEFT is living in their gated communities, and mansions, advocating for the USA to let ANYBODY in. They spend MORE money on their security, than MOST American citizens MAKE in a year. WHEN they come OUT HERE, & take their chances like the Rest of us, THEN, I’ll consider their viewpoint.

          15. silvereagle says

            They have lowered standards for every facet of lifes challenges . Progressive/ liberalism has destroyed many great societies of the past 5000 years. Read up on history. Conservatism builds great nations and its peoples. Law and order is well respected compared to what has and is happening to the USA the past 8 years.

          16. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Nonsense

          17. AfricanTraveler1 says

            The right wing is never going to understand what you have written. At heart, they are fascists.

          18. OfcShane (MGySgt USMC) says

            Ironically, by definition, that is quite true — since fascism is, simply put, “a strong nationalistic right wing ideology and social organization.” Ergo, the right wing is technically fascist. However, the wordplay there is about as far as it goes considering the difference in how America is governed and how our people are generally. Over 90% of the US is moderates (on either side) and only less than 5% of the right and less than 5% of the left would ever consider accepting a dictatorship or alternately communism here. Therefore, the “fire” you are yelling about is quite fictional and vastly exaggerated. (same goes for the far right when they tried to paint out Sanders as someone that was going to paint America red) We should all be happy that we didn’t end up with someone the establishment was rooting for. They crucified Sanders publicly as an offering to the Hillaristic Institution, that should have been the red flag that all Dems needed to see the reality of the situation with the bipartisan system. The Repubs ONLY endorsed Trump because they knew that he’d drop out of the party and run solo if they didn’t and Cruz and Bush didn’t have a snowballs chance in hell of winning. Trump isn’t a true Republican, he is somewhat left leaning on some things and comes off as a TP/Greenie sometimes. He isn’t some super religious person, we know it, but he shows respect to religion. He isn’t going to shoot Republican on all matters, and we know that, but we know he respects the middle class. The billionaires hate him, the corporations hate him, the banks hate him, the House and Senate hates him, the governors hate him… He isn’t in the pocket of the establishment and only needs to answer to the people and himself.

            Doesn’t he sound like the revolutionary visionary we need to get things back on track? face facts, Obama promised change and brought the same song and dance we always knew and managed to throw race relations so far back that the KKK grew in over 50,000 new members in the last 4 years and NSP nabbed up 22,000 new recruits — while the BPP is seeing it’s largest surge in numbers since it’s founding in 1966 (for it’s 50th anniversary) because BLM is turning into an open campus and deep web recruiting ground for the militant NOI group. We’re in worse shape than we were entering into the 1960’s. We’ve got riots breaking out left and right, police are killing kids, kids are burning down cities, kidnapping and torturing handicapped kids on live internet streams — what good is happening that we should stand by here? Enlighten me…

          19. silvereagle says

            Look in the mirror and see the Liberal Fascist.

          20. silvereagle says

            Really? put your glasses on and turn the lights on before reading. You sound like the Democratic Party Leadership!

          21. AfricanTraveler1 says

            I think getting us “whole” is going to be a lot more difficult than most people imagine. Trump and his associates simply don’t adhere to traditional American values, and that will prevent a healing process.

          22. Tiger says

            Trump stands for everything the Real Americans want and that is why he won. Notice that BLM not rioting, that cops are not killed daily?

          23. Jimmy King says

            He doesn’t know sheet. I love how you morons scream STATES RIGHTS at every turn, but not when it doesn’ suit your argument. You’re hypocrites.

            If you knew ANYTHING, you’d know the 10th Amendment prevents the Federal Gov from forcing sanctuary cities from enforcing Fed laws.

          24. Mathew Molk says

            It says NOTHING about being able to BREAK federal laws either.

            Look fool, We are not talking about them arresting theses wetbacks for immigration violations, but notifying the feds and for putting a hold on them when they are arrested for anything else.

          25. Jimmy King says

            They are under no obligation to enforce federal law. You morons have no idea what you’re talking about

          26. carla AMERICAN says

            What ? You are goofy. Federal Law is A Law ! You condone breaking laws to have your way ? What makes you outside the law and protected ? I guess you believe women are allowed to kill babies because they’re women ? What would happen if a man killed a baby ? Different laws for different sexes, races? Illegal immigrants allowed to kill, rape ? That’s not American Laws !

          27. silvereagle says

            Could not have said it better.

          28. glorybe2 says

            If you are killed or raped it will not be by an undocumented person. American citizens are far more dangerous than the undocumented folks. And although you may not be able to understand the limits of words a fetus is clearly and absolutely not a baby. As far as federal laws are concerned have you noticed that the states that allow selling pot are not being raided by federal forces? And we have here another situation in which crimes will be committed because of laws and probably have been already. You see a pot store can not take the money to the bank as federal banking controls could murder the bank calling them agents in receiving drug money. So when that pot store on the corner takes in 2 million bucks for the month they have to keep that money out of the banks. That makes people a target for a super violent armed robbery. Right wing thinking actually causes crime.

          29. carla AMERICAN says

            You been at the Mexican boarder getting free drugs again have’nt you! Are you a man who thinks a fetus is’nt a baby in order to get how many women to abort your unprotected sex and commit murder Or a woman who thinks it’s o.k. to commit murder because it’s her right because she’s a woman ? Wow I want some ! To let a simple mind go to waste go ahead it’s a simple mind keep on smokin . Children know that better than you, ask them if it’s wrong to hurt someone, now ask YOUR MAMA ! I knew for three pregnancies, how ? They’re now adults dumbass ! What are you ?

          30. Joseph Vanchieri says

            Now here you go again and picking on the politically handicapped. She can’t help if she likes killing babies. She can’t help if she don’t care about illegals coming in and stealing our jobs. Maybe if we tell her that her welfare would be higher if illegals weren’t here. Nah, she don’t mind giving her money to poor murdering, raping and drug dealing illegals.

          31. AfricanTraveler1 says

            As a matter of fact, if you take American citizens and Hispanic immgrants with the same income level, the Hispanics only commit about half the crime that regular American citizens do.

          32. teachersaide says

            Get your facts Right! Currently, majority population is Caucasian. 60% of the people in Jail &/or Prison are NOT white! Hispanics crime rates are lower than those in black communities, but higher than those in white communities.

          33. teachersaide says

            SEND YOUR platitudes to the family of Kate Steinle. Also, try the families of the 2 women Run Down by an illegal alien in Louisville KY, in Dec. The women he KILLED were LEGAL Immigrants!

          34. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Your thinking is confused and muddled. King is correct.

          35. carla AMERICAN says

            Muddled, confused, king is right. Let me guess you approve of black loves matters and pink panthers ? Figures ! Be specific when stating someone’s frame of mind and opinions of others are’nt allowed because you already know them do to your opinion , right liberal? Thinking liberals should speak for all of America. I think king is wrong.

          36. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Your comment is incoherent.

          37. Mary Brumley says

            I don’t think even our Public Education System is FORCED to teach common core or federally directed programs, BUT schools would certainly lose federal funding!
            So, restrict federal funding and let those states fund their own choice of action! Or let those states go to court and pay for expenses to lose the cases!
            See, I believe in choice! But most of all I believe in a country taking care of its own citizens FIRST.
            But please tell me if you are sincere in thinking America should just accept any alien that chooses to waltz into our nation and demands the same rights of the citizens!
            I don’t blame the aliens! I might do the same if I were a poverty-stricken alien.

          38. glorybe2 says

            Yes, every person on American soil is entitled to full protection of law.

          39. AfricanTraveler1 says

            We could not possibly make room for all the aliens, legal or illegal, who want to enter and stay in this country. If that were allowed, more than half the world would be here already.

          40. Jimmy King says

            Mary, the fed government can only restrict the funds that directly relate to the action complained of. So if it is border security that you’re complaining about, or immigration, you can’t withhold federal dollars earmakred for education, or roads, etc

          41. Mary Brumley says

            Then I suppose that we should list every aspect of how an influx of illegal aliens increases the funding required for each state. For they certainly do.
            Education: more teachers, text books, interpreters, buildings. Security: more policemen, etc. Roads: wear and tear, more patrolmen and police cars. Jails: more money to feed, guard and prosecute… Welfare system: more freebies needed. Hospitals: more expensive freebies. The list goes on, and on, and…

          42. Jimmy King says

            Its funny how everyone claims they steal all of the jobs, and then out of the otherside of their mouths they claim they take all the freebies. Nobody mentions paying sales taxes, with holding taxes and FICA and SS taxes which they will never be eligible to get back. In addition to providing child care, resturant staff, landscaping and thousands of other jobs that fat lazy americans won’t take

          43. ChiefD says

            I don’t know your background, but mine includes working with the USBP, as a deputy sheriff and police officer, where we did enforce immigration law. Yes, I arrested people just for giving illegal aliens a ride (usually to a drop house).

          44. glorybe2 says

            Most states would not allow such nonsense. Would you arrest a bus driver because a passenger was an undocumented person? Here again we see a totally different rule book for businesses as opposed to the laws applied to people. Would you seize a huge ocean liner because one passenger was caught with drugs? But you would grab my car in a heartbeat and just bully me into thinking I am somehow responsible for knowing what another person hid from me.

          45. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Glorybe2, you must understand that conservatives most often cannot deal with complexity.

          46. Jimmy King says

            You worked with border patrol?? You did a fine job

          47. John Young says

            Tell us, who is paying you to spread all these obvious lies, You surely can’t be stupid enough to believe that our laws don’t apply to all of the USA.

          48. AfricanTraveler1 says

            You are oversymplifying the situation. See my post above,

          49. Jimmy King says

            And you can’t be stupid enough to believe that city police officers have to perform federal police duties

          50. Jimmy King says

            Mr Young, clearly reading comprehension isn’t your strong suit. I did not say the laws did not apply. Local police forces are not obligated to enforce those laws.

          51. silvereagle says

            Really!! Enlighten yourself—Read the US Constitution !

          52. AfricanTraveler1 says

            It usually isn’t in the fact of having read the Constitution that disagreement occurs. The disagreement usually stems from the interpretation of what the Constitution was intended to mean.

          53. Jimmy King says

            I have. and studied it. Enought to have earned a LLM in constitutional law

          54. ringostarr1 says

            You sound like George (Stand in the School House Door) Wallace.

          55. Jimmy King says

            And you sould like someone who doesn’t understand the difference between constitutional rights and laws

          56. ringostarr1 says

            So your ignorant arse believes that the concept of EQUAL RIGHTS UNDER THE LAW is somehow un American. I am glad that you are not a Trump Voter because then the whole Country would be frig%^&$% to a nether the well.

          57. Jimmy King says

            How the heck did you make that leap?

          58. David Bagdasarian says

            You are some kind of special stupid son. The fed is under NO obligation to send tax dollars to rouge cities either. I assume you are a card carrying member of the diaper brigade so buck up boyo, there is a whole hell of a lot more to come.

          59. AfricanTraveler1 says

            David, I am sure you can write something more intelligent than this post full of twaddle.

          60. Jimmy King says

            Actually Mr Bagofwind, the federal government can’t withold $$ unless it is directly tied to the purported violation. In other words, if the Feds feel that nyc isn’t policing immigration, they can’t withold $$ earmarked for schools

          61. Jimmy King says

            Actually, you’re wrong. The Fed government can’t cut off education funds, or transportation funds or any number of other funds. If it is a dispute over security, those are the only funds permitted to be with held. And I don’t see even Trump being stupid enough to withhold $$ ear marked to protect NYC from terrorism

          62. AfricanTraveler1 says

            King, you are correct. And California has hired a large enough group of lawyers to make Trump and his fellow fascists tied up in legal knots for quite soie time.

          63. Jimmy King says

            A person is detained in SF, by city police. The police do NOT ask him about his immigration status, and he is subsequently released. THAT is what “sanctuary” cities are doing. Now tell me what Law that breaks??

          64. carla AMERICAN says

            Federal laws cannot be broken . Watch Trump’s administration and the American Citizens who voted will quietly Prevail. Those politicians that took oaths can be arrested. Watch and see.

          65. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Carla, one thing we can all guarantee is that nothing about the process will transpire “quietly.”

          66. Jimmy King says

            clearly you don’t understand how these laws work, or how they are enforced. the politicians can’t be arrested you idiot

          67. Mary Brumley says

            Jimmy K., NO state should be FORCED! But we can require that they “pay” for their unwise decisions! Hey??? One solution for them is for all those in favor of remaining a sanctuary city be willing to take the illegal aliens into their homes and support them. Easy, huh?
            The city of Miami has decided to comply and I approve of that. But, then they are smart and many others are not.

          68. teachersaide says

            NO state should be forced? UNDER that rationale, Segregation would still be rampant in the South!

          69. Mary Brumley says

            You do have a point. Somewhat. But a sizable portion of the citizens of these states want to help desperate humans. To pretend segregation and helping folk are analogous is nonsensical, since these issues are intrinsically diametrically opposed.
            But, I am also aware that many of the Libs and corrupt elite want these poor aliens here only for cheap labor and Democratic voting.
            America claims to be a nation of law and order, so it would be smarter if those people who believe we should have open borders worked at changing the laws rather than defying those laws.

          70. silvereagle says

            Open borders relates to ONE WORLD ORDER. Look at what has happened to Europe ( UE ) they have a tremendous security and immigration problems of people that will not assimilate in that country’s culture. This also happened in the 600 +/-century and was stopped.

          71. ringostarr1 says

            Mary, you are the nonsensical one in this discussion.

          72. AfricanTraveler1 says

            States rights exercised in ways that bother conservatives are going to make a lot of fascist Republicans unhappy.

          73. ringostarr1 says

            If no state can be forced to obey the law then why did President Dwight Eisenhower send the 82nt Airborne Division to Little Rock, Arkansas for the sole purpose of enforcing school integration. The best way to make the Kooks of Kalifornia follow the law is to send a later day General Sherman there and encourage him to burn new Dixie down.

          74. AfricanTraveler1 says

            It would take a lot more than a General Sherman burning things down to make Californians accept Trump and his fascist ways. If such a thing were to happen, we would quickly cut off your nuts (almonds and cashews), bar you from Disneyland, which is probably as deep an enjoyment as your intelligence (wheeee !) allows, and bar you from havfing any of the new technology we are constantly developing. If we were a country instead of part of the Unitred States, we would have the fifth largest economy in the world, which would be fairly tough for you and General Sherman to deal with..

          75. Jimmy King says

            Cities have their own reasons for not enforcing these laws. Maybe you don’t like them, or don’t understand them, but that doesn’t make these cities stupid. The federal government passed a law and has funded a force to carry out that law. the cities have a police force and have funded it to enforce their laws. If the Federal govermnet wants to ear mark more $$ to these cities to enforce the fed laws, tell them to do so. These cities are stretched far enough as it is

          76. silvereagle says

            Federal laws TRUMP state laws. Wake up!

          77. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Not if most of the citizens in the state disapprove of a certain federal law. The Feds trying to enforce such a law will be thwarted every time they try to do something.

          78. Jimmy King says

            These aren’t two competing laws you moron

          79. ringostarr1 says

            All the 10th does is allow States and cities to make immigration laws in the absence of Federal laws on immigration.

          80. Jimmy King says

            Clearly you have no understaninf of constitutional jurisprudence

          81. ringostarr1 says

            OK smarty pants, why don’t your local school board pass laws, rules, or policies restricting the number of sport teams for girls or laws mandating separate but equal schools for Whites or Blacks?

          82. Jimmy King says

            Because those concepts are constitutional rights, MORON. Not laws passed by the federal government, with Federal authorities to enforce them

          83. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Yes, I do notice all lot of conservatives who have screamed “States rights !” don’t like it when someone with opposing views tries to assert the same thing. In the jhnext few years I think we will see the Governor and the people of California asserting states’ rights very often, much to the unhappiness of conservatives.

          84. John says

            I have people tell me that they voted 4 or 5 times and all they had to do was go when the polls were low in voters on site.

          85. elmcqueen3 says

            There is no reason to doubt what you have heard.

        4. ChiefD says

          Then when Sessions becomes AG, which he will regardless of that idiot Feinstein’s trying to delay or stop his appointment, he should draft warrants for violation of Title 8, for any mayor, police official, supervisor or governor who condones, defies or otherwise harbors and protects illegal aliens.

          1. Tiger says

            Exactly and they hate Sessions because he has been an insider for 20 years. He is the one who rebelled against O and wrote letters to all the congressmen trying to rally them to stop O. Frustrated he began sending those letters to the net and sites so we could read them. So Sessions is going to carry not a big stick, but a huge hammer and he is going to hammer in the morning, evening and all over this land. Wasn’t that a song? LOLOL

          6. Tiger says

            Exactly and the fur is going to fly. I also am anxious for Trump to get the Fast and Furious documents that Holder hid with him back into Congress and also the bin laden documents. Trump will have what he needs to bleed this bunch anemic and throw their bodies to the wolves.

          7. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Sooner or later, Trump will be impeached. His personality will cause that, and no matter how hard he tries, he cannot change his personality.

          8. Tiger says

            Listen African, Trump has the smartest men in this country surrounding him. They know the law. Nothing he has done or is doing in the way of Executive Orders, unlike Obama are against any laws, changing any laws or writing any laws.

            You can wish in one hand and crap in the other and see which comes true first. If that disgusting, unlawful, racist and bigot, Muslim loving, Christian hating, Military hating, Veteran hating Obama didn’t get impeached it was ONLY because he was black in color but had he been a white man his ass would have been thrown out the first few months. My Congressman told me so.

            Get over it, you lost.

          9. SUZANNE M. says

            LET’S BE CORRECT…OBAMA IS HALF WHITE. THE REST OF IT ????? IT WOULD APPEAR TRUE.

          10. AfricanTraveler1 says

            No, Tiger, if Obama didn’t get impeached it was becausew he knows the law much, much better than his Republican critics. mDo you think Republicans would not have iompeached him if there were grounds to do so ? No. nEven Republicans are not stupid enough to claim he should be impeached and then not do it if there were a way to do so. Why didn’t your congressman try to get him impeached ? What state are you from ? Sounds like both you and he are bigots. O(h, well, it takes all kinds to make up the world, doesn’t it ? Your savious Trump will get impeached. I’m just sitting back and waiting for it to happen. He will be impeached because he is a pathologically sick individual and cannot help overstepping the legal bounds. Character is fate, and in his case the fate is impeachment.

          11. Tiger says

            Good God in heaven O broke our laws over and over again. No Republicans did not want to be the ones to go down in history as impeaching the firs black in color only president, I know I work with my congressmen.

            I am from Florida. The words bigot and racist have lost their meaning under O who was the most racist and bigoted president ever and showed it why do you think we had BLM, cop killings, riots with Muslims, illegals and blacks at Trump rallies? O never opened his mouth or condemned them.

            Sit on your ass until it goes numb and falls off cause Trump will not be Impeached. Did you know that the generals wanted to try O for Treason? Did you know that even Democrats said his final acts were treasonous? Who knows you might see Obama tried for treason.

          12. silvereagle says

            Well said Tiger. POTUS is shaking all these progressive / liberal cages and they do not like. TOO BAD.

          13. Tiger says

            Thank you

          14. SUZANNE M. says

            YOU TELL EM GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          15. Tiger says

            You also. Together we are stronger.

          16. pappy450 says

            Being the “deplorable” that I am I blocked this creep. I guess he takes his “talking points” from the Lame stream scumocrat communist media. Don’t waste your time and energy answering this ignorant piece of excrement. (I know it is tempting, but THIS is what these creeps want) They need to go to a nice communist blog and post their crap with like-minded communists like them and stay OFF sites that have intelligent people like yourself posting opinions.

          17. Tiger says

            There is a Blitz of the European papers by these people and especially in Israel. You are right not worth my time.

          18. Motorhead says

            Ban his arse Tiger…he is thickheaded….waste of time!!!Motorhead

          19. Tiger says

            Yepper when he said that Trump not legitimate president knew a nutcase for sure.

          20. AfricanTraveler1 says

            No, they need to push the noses of Conservative Creeps (deplorables) right into the messy facts.

          21. Mr Rollo says

            You have been blocked, Mr Turd.

          22. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Wow !

          23. AfricanTraveler1 says

            If anyone here cannot stand the facts, gewt out of the kitchen just like Mr. Rollo claims to have done. (I bet he comes back now and then, unblocking me, so he can have a few sneak peeks.)

          24. sox83cubs84 says

            That last sentence shows that you are just like your hero, the Terrorist Appeaser…you are WAY too full of yourself.

          25. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Late last night I heard the first mention on network television of the I word — impeachment. I predicted e;lsewhere that it would take at least six months, but it may even take 8 – 10 months for charges to be filed. I am betting it weill be ionvolved in either one of two things — 1) Trump’s raking in mon ey through his businesses because he has not divested himself of them; or 2) Some move he will make towards Russia, towards which he seems to be cultivating a kissy-kissy attitude rather than one of protecting the interests of the United States. We will see what we will see, but I think greed will win out in his mind rather than the well-being of our nation. Character is destiny, and we know what Trump’s character is like.

          26. Mary Brumley says

            I would not block you! I WANT you to keep showing your ugly, liberal backside. More and more Conservative Democrats will get repulsed enough to change their party to Republican.
            As I have previously stated: The times–they are a-changing!!!! It doesn’t bode well for Liberals and Rhino Republican Leaders!
            Chat with you on your next trip around. LOL

          27. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Pappy450, like many Deplorobs, cannot deal with facts. He has to block them soi they don’t disrupt his prejudiced mind.

          28. AfricanTraveler1 says

            If Obama broke all those laws, you Republicans would have impeaqched him in a jiffy. He didn’t break the laws then, you couldn’t impeach him, and now you are just repeated “alternate facts.”

            1907. Title 8, U.S.C. 1324(a) Offenses

            Title
            8, U.S.C. § 1324(a) defines several distinct offenses related to
            aliens. Subsection 1324(a)(1)(i)-(v) prohibits alien smuggling, domestic
            transportation of unauthorized aliens, concealing or harboring
            unauthorized aliens, encouraging or inducing unauthorized aliens to
            enter the United States, and engaging in a conspiracy or aiding and
            abetting any of the preceding acts. Subsection 1324(a)(2) prohibits
            bringing or attempting to bring unauthorized aliens to the United States
            in any manner whatsoever, even at a designated port of entry.
            Subsection 1324(a)(3).

            Alien Smuggling — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(i) makes it an offense
            for any person who — knowing that a person is an alien, to bring to or
            attempts to bring to the United States in any manner whatsoever such
            person at a place other than a designated port of entry or place other
            than as designated by the Commissioner, regardless of whether such alien
            has received prior official authorization to come to, enter, or reside
            in the United States and regardless of any future official action which
            may be taken with respect to such alien.

            Domestic Transporting — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(ii) makes it an
            offense for any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of the
            fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States
            in violation of law, transports, or moves or attempts to transport or
            move such alien within the United States by means of transportation or
            otherwise, in furtherance of such violation of law.

            Harboring — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii) makes it an offense for
            any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an
            alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation
            of law, conceals harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to
            conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place,
            including any building or any means of transportation.

            Encouraging/Inducing — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) makes it an
            offense for any person who — encourages or induces an alien to come to,
            enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard
            of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in
            violation of law.

            Conspiracy/Aiding or Abetting — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(v)
            expressly makes it an offense to engage in a conspiracy to commit or aid
            or abet the commission of the foregoing offenses.

            Bringing Aliens to the United States — Subsection 1324(a)(2) makes
            it an offense for any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of
            the fact that an alien has not received prior authorization to come to,
            enter, or reside in the United States, to bring to or attempts to bring
            to the United States in any manner whatsoever, such alien, regardless of
            any official action which may later be taken with respect to such
            alien.

            The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act
            (IIRIRA), enacted on September 30, 1996, added a new 8 U.S.C. §
            1324(a)(3)(A) which makes it an offense for any person, during any
            12-month period, to knowingly hire at least 10 individuals with actual
            knowledge that these individuals are unauthorized aliens. See this Manual at 1908 (unlawful employment of aliens).

            Unit of Prosecution — With regard to offenses defined in subsections
            1324(a)(1)(A)(i)-(v), (alien smuggling, domestic transporting,
            harboring, encouraging/inducing, or conspiracy/aiding or abetting) each
            alien with respect to whom a violation occurs constitutes a unit of
            prosecution. Prior to enactment of the IIRIRA, the unit of prosecution
            for violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2) was each transaction, regardless
            of the number of aliens involved. However, the unit of prosecution is
            now based on each alien in respect to whom a violation occurs.

            Knowledge — Prosecutions for alien smuggling, 8 U.S.C. §
            1324(a)(1)(A)(i) require proof that defendant knew that the person
            brought to the United States was an alien. With regard to the other
            violations in 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a), proof of knowledge or reckless
            disregard of alienage is sufficient.

            Penalties — The basic statutory maximum penalty for violating 8
            U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(i) and (v)(I) (alien smuggling and conspiracy) is a
            fine under title 18, imprisonment for not more than 10 years, or both.
            With regard to violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(ii)-(iv) and (v)(ii),
            domestic transportation, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or
            aiding/abetting, the basic statutory maximum term of imprisonment is 5
            years, unless the offense was committed for commercial advantage or
            private financial gain, in which case the maximum term of imprisonment
            is 10 years. In addition, significant enhanced penalties are provided
            for in violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1) involving serious bodily
            injury or placing life in jeopardy. Moreover, if the violation results
            in the death of any person, the defendant may be punished by death or by
            imprisonment for any term of years. The basic penalty for a violation
            of subsection 1324(a)(2) is a fine under title 18, imprisonment for not
            more than one year, or both, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(A). Enhanced
            penalties are provided for violations involving bringing in criminal
            aliens, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(i), offenses done for commercial
            advantage or private financial gain, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(ii), and
            violations where the alien is not presented to an immigration officer
            immediately upon arrival, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(iii). A mandatory
            minimum three year term of imprisonment applies to first or second
            violations of § 1324(a)(2)(B)(i) or (B)(ii). Further enhanced punishment
            is provided for third or subsequent offenses.

            COMMENT: Further discussion of offenses defined in 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a) is set forth in Chapter 3 of Immigration Law, published as part of the Office of Legal Education’s Litigation Series, and as part of the USABook computer library.

            Obama broke every immigration law we have. He left our borders wide open bused 55,000 illegal children across America. He aided and gave jobs to along with our benefits illegals. Read and learn something and by the way he committed Treason because he aided our enemies over and over again giving them money and weapons and he might find his ass prosecuted because he is not immune from it and we have more than enough proof he did it and no Pardon’s from Trump or “We the People” would go after him.

          30. Tiger says

            Now sink your teeth into this an understand that all these people perpetrating violence and those behind it by law should be prosecuted and if this continues and becomes a Civil War they will be and these people rounded up including Obama because he allowed this when in office, never said anything to stop the BLM or those who violently were at Trump rallies and one even stopped Trump from speaking. We know who is behind it his name ie George Soros and we know Hillary was behind the riots because we have video proof of here people talking about causing violence and she knew it.

          31. Tiger says

            You and your ilk have every right to ask this question because you are 100% right. If indeed and we know they did, we heard all the hearings the Republicans knew what O was doing, and they did why didn’t they Impeach him? Well in the beginning they for two years had no voice and how could they Impeach him when the Democrats still the majority, Harry Reid over the Senate and would never agree to let Impeachment hearings go through. But that still does not account for the money, the benefits, the laws he broke and they didn’t stop him.

            This is why we as a people, from all walks of life, from the Independent, the Democrat, the Libertarian and Republican party came together and the Silent Majority, who thought it hopeless to vote Trump as president, to bring back Law and Order and the RINO were against him until the head of the RNC made it clear, Trump due to the numbers of the crowds was going to win and they better get behind him or they would never be backed for the presidency, so indeed African many Republicans were in with O’s plans for this country.

            But dead bodies float to the surface sooner or later and the dead wood in the Republican Party is going to show up on the shores and their rotting corpses will be smelled out and come next election they will be buried for ever and our party renewed. They now own both houses, they due to Trump and his message won their re-elections and they know it and Ryan admitted it and there are Republican Mayors and Governors across this land, showing the wide spread love of Trump’s message and they never dreamed they would have this LAST OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

          32. sox83cubs84 says

            If anything, the GOP was trying to avoid the massive rioting that an Ovomit impeachment would have produced, which would have probably been even worse than what we’re seeing now after Trump’s election.

          33. AfricanTraveler1 says

            You have quite a bit of skill for transforming reality into lies. If anything, Obama couldn’t be impeached because you had no grounds for this. You would have been happy as a pig in sxxx if somehow you had found valid impeachment grounds. You couldn’t , you didn’t, and he served his full 2 terms. We’ll have better success with Trump because character is destiny.

          34. sox83cubs84 says

            If I have a choice between believing a true American Patriot like Tiger and an Obamazombie like you, I’ll choose the Patriot every time.

          35. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Good for you. Try the alternative. Do your own research.

          36. sox83cubs84 says

            I do…and you know what? What I find matches what she finds virtually every single time.

          37. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Trump will be successfully impeached. Character is destiny. He cannot change his character, so impeachment, sooner or later, is inevitable. Members of Congress are already talking about it. Townhall meetings are discussing it (just read a report of one in which this happened). Impeachment is a very slow process, but it will happen. I’M GOING TO SIT BACK AND WATCH IT OCCUR.

          38. erleebird says

            I’ve wondered very often why Obama got away with all his lawlessness. What a shame this man, who could have done amazing things for the country as a whole, chose to be a “rebel with a cause.” The BLM is a disgrace to our liberties. Obama brought back racism that had not been seen since the 60’s. He could only have been brought into our culture with Geo. Soros’s backing! I think we’ve learned that just because someone may give a good speech, he’s really “a silver-tongued devil!”

          39. Tiger says

            O was always what he showed us and millions of us, knowing his background, reading his books, looking at his Senate record knew what we were in for.

            Trump needs to get to the bottom of this also. Remember he evoked Executive Privilege on the documents congress wanted from Eric Holder on the gun fiasco.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Sr4PSZO2W8

          40. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Obama got away with whatever he did because he knew the Constitution and the law very, very well, and he did not generally stray beyond them. You want to claim that he did, but he knew a lot more about these things than you do. Your claims are “alternate facts.”

          41. erleebird says

            Give me a break!!

          42. Motorhead says

            The cities would of been burnt to the ground! President Obola was the worst President in 150 years…hell Nixon… is rated better than Obola! He was a failure!!!

          43. Tiger says

            Ain’t that the truth.

          44. silvereagle says

            Republicans are a very polite and respectful bunch of people up and down the ladder. Watching the lying/twisting democratic party was and is more so lately disgusting. All the Democrat washing politicians that boycotted the POTUS Donald Trump inauguration have disgraced their office , themselves and the law abiding peoples of they respected states. They did it again at the congressional hearings. They DELAY DELAY DELAY THE ACTIONS REQUIRED AND EXPECTATIONS OF THE LAW ABIDING SILENT MAJORITY..
            They are the problem and are resisting efforts to bring SOLUTIONS FINALLY.
            THEY MUST RESIGN, THEY ARE UNQUALIFIED TO FILL THEIR POSITIONS.
            WHO ELECTED THESE UNQUALIFIED INDIVIDUALS ANYWAY???????

            You have merely to read the posts in this forum to know that from the very first laughable statement in the post above your comments are in error (“alternate facts” ?).

          46. Tiger says

            No he is right. Never have the Republican party been known for lying and for acting like clowns never and just look back at the debates between O and Romeny, Biden and Ryan and you will see that. O mocked and laughed and made fun of Romney and Biden did the same with Ryan but this election we had enough and when Democrats in charge they show no mercy, no respect, no compromise and never did you see any of our people for Trump stopping violently any of Hillary rallies and never even when we knew what a creep and filthy SOB O was we never threatened Anarchy or blood shed. Just look a see it everywhere still today. We never treated any of O’s nominees for his administration in the manner that Democrats are treating Trump’s the personal insults, they are savages snarling mad rabid dogs.

            NO now we fight tooth for tooth, nail for nail, tit for tat and no more nice guys who compromise O said my way or the highway now Trump’s way, no surrender, no mercy and not prisoners. It is over.

          47. AfricanTraveler1 says

            ONE HAS MERELY TO READ THE POSTS HERE TO KNOW THAT YOUR FIRST STATEMENT — “REPUBLICANS ARE A VERY POLITE AND RESPECTFUL BUNCH OF PEOPLE UP AND DOWN THE LADDER,” TO KNOW THAT YOUR GRIP ON REALITY IS TENUOUS AT BEST.

            I pray that if he gets impeach i think that there never will be a another democrats as our president .

          50. mork says

            Odumbo didn’t get impeached because he was black and moronic white guilt like you would have protested your butt heads off. Save the world’s water, get rid of liberals.

          51. AfricanTraveler1 says

            No, he didn’t get impeached because as much as you folks wanted to get rid of him he knew a lot more constitutional law than you do (if you know any), he didn’t commit impeachable offenses, and therefore you couldn’t im[each him. Maybe he was and ius a great deal smarter than you are, and a great deal more educated.

          52. mork says

            I may not know constitutional law but this I know. You are a stain in the underpants of those with perpetual flatulence.
            Begone with liberals.

          59. mac12sam12 says

            He violated the 1st amendment and used the IRS to target his enemies and that’s what got Nixon impeached. He also violated the 2nd amendment by taking away the gun rights of SS recipients. He legalized millions of illegals and only congress can make laws. Trump isn’t going to get impeached, get over yourself your candidate lost.

          60. Mr Rollo says

            Get lost Troll.

          61. Motorhead says

            What??? Your crazy!!

          62. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Trump will be impeached. His character will cause his destiny, just as gravity causes matter to fall. There is no way he can escape it. Legislators in town hall meetings are already talking about impeaching him, and are writing about it. You may not like the prospect, but it is in the cards.

          63. Tiger says

            You don’t get impeached for your personality if that were the case many presidents including O would have been impeached.

            The only people talking impeachment is your ilk and they don’t count, as you saw in this election that trump won with 306 electorate votes and most likely the Popular Vote. That investigation you people wanted on voter fraud is doing well, already found 2 million illegal votes. Your O told illegals to vote on TV how you like that? Think something should have happened to him?

            Keep dreaming.

          64. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Tiger, you are really missing the point about impeachment here. True, you don’t get impeached because you have a nasty personality. You get impeached because your personality pushes you in a direction where you think you can/should do certain things that are illegal. This is what is going to happen to Trump. Character is destiny, and Trump’s character is what will almost certainly get him impeached. Character isw like the force of gravity. You cannot escape it, and it will have its effect.

            Go ahead. Deny this. And we will all sit by the sidelines and watch the eventual impeachment proceed.

            As for your statement about two million examples of voter fraud being found, that is nonsense. You folks believe anything Trump says. That business about people crossing over from Massachusetts to vote illegally in New Hampshire is also nonsense. Are there no limits to the “alternate facts” you people are willing to believe ? The last few days he has talked about terrible things going on caused by Muslims in Sweden. This is a figment of his imagination. The Swedes, including the President of Sweden, have denied that any such situation existed. Get a grip. You can argue over political points of view and values, but facts are facts, and you don’t seem to distinguish between truth and falsehood, no matter how much evidence is presented to you.

          65. Tiger says

            That would be O who did just that ignored the Constitution and bypassed congress to do whatever he pleased. Trump is within the law, his counselors and those in his cabinet are strong men and women and believe me he will be the Greatest President in the history of the U.S. because he was left with the Biggest Mess by the Worst president in history.

            Trump didn’t say there were 2 million illegal votes, that came from this investigation. You all asked for. LOLOLOL as to Sweden got more video for you and by the way I guess I need to put up the posts from my friend in Sweden about what is happening there.

          66. Tiger says

            You see what the ignorance of your party has caused? You want these savages in our country? You don’t have a clue and you and your ilk need to be silenced again and logic and common sense prevail. God save us from you people.

            Again I could put up video all day, I could show the video sent to me by Europeans asking why aren’t these things shown on U.S. news. Because people like you African you and your O and your FAKE news. To say my patience is done with you doesn’t cover the resentment I feel for what you people have allowed to happen to America.

          71. Kevin Lorka says

            Hate??? The AfricanTraveler1 is not happy with the POTUS that was elected by the citizens of this country. I was just suggesting that he move to a place that he is fond of with his beloved Obama.

          72. SUZANNE M. says

            KUNTA KINTE????YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHY YOU SAID IT AND IT WAS NOT NECESSARY. ALOT OF PEOPLE ARE NOT HAPPY WITH OUR POTUS, BUT TO INSINUATE….YOUR POINT IS LOUD AND CLEAR. YOUR SMARTER THAN THAT. YOU CAN GET YOUR POINT ACROSS BETTER THAN THAT. SERIOUSLY…..YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.

          73. Kevin Lorka says

            I am sick and tired of the LIBERALs whining , Rioting, looting, burning, obstructing, etc. Did you see the hissy fit they threw at UC Berkeley yesterday? I live in New York State and I am tired of paying inflated taxes and health care premiums to subsidize all these illegal foreigners. When my grandfather came here from Poland he had a place to stay and a job waiting for him. When some idiot says they are going to burn down the White House, disobey Federal laws and Trump is not there President, then they should leave this country. They had a free ride for 8 years and now they have to leave Mommy and Daddy’s basement to look for a job. Too f—-ing BAD!!!!

          74. SUZANNE M. says

            I ABSOLUTLY AGREE WITH YOU….LIKE THE MUSLIM LIMO OWNER WHOSE CAR WAS BURNED BY THESE IGNORANT ASSHOLES, THEY ARE INDISCRIMNATE…THEY SEE A LIMO AND ASSUME IT BELONGS TO A RICH PERSON. U.C BERKLEY SHOULD HAVE ALL FEDERAL FUNDING TAKEN AWAY. THEY CAN SA AND DO WHAT EVER THEY WANT INCLUDING ARSON AND DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY BUT, GOD, HELP US IF WE DID.I HOPE THE VIDEO IDENTIFIES ALL OF THEM…BUT THEN THEY WERE DRESSED LIKE ISIS TERRORISTS…….

          75. Kevin Lorka says

            That is the Liberal Way of thinking – Do whatever we want and someone else will take the blame and the financial burden. Guess what Libs? There is a New Sheriff in Town and he is going to hold all of YOU responsible for YOUR actions. You won’t be able to hide in Mommy and Daddy’s basement while everyone else cleans up your mess.

          76. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Guess what — the new sherrif in town is going to be impeached. Why ? Because character is destiny, and a man with Trump’s character will sooner or later be thrown out of office.

          77. mac12sam12 says

            i THINK IT’S FUNNY, TOO. i AM GOING TO WATCH THE PROCESS HAPPEN, JUST AS i WATCHED THINGS CLOSING AROUND nIXON UNTIL HE DEPARTED.

          79. mac12sam12 says

            Trump has a majority in both houses so there will be no impeachment. He also hasn’t done anything to get impeached. You want him impeached because he beat old hag Hillary like a Salvation Army drum.

          80. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Mac, impeachment is a very slow process. You will find that in the next election, Republicans will lose the majority, and the impeachment process will progress. Folks in Congress are already using the “I word.” It ios just a matter of time.

          81. AfricanTraveler1 says

            I wonder if you would have said trhe same thing back in the timesd of the American Revolution — on the side of the British, of course. All these darn natives want to be free !

          82. river says

            LOL… in times of the American revolution it would have been acceptable to blow your idiot head off, as it should be today. Why don’t you just draw a bullseye on your slanted forehead and go out to some shooting range? Wait, before you go, my Anthropology instructor wants to measure your skull.

          83. AfricanTraveler1 says

          85. river says

            I like Bigots better than I like progressive toilet bugs.

          86. river says

            You’re correct, Kevin. Kunte Kinte is imposing his self pity and degradation on all of us from his hate. Of course, he’s trying to make all of us feel guilty, ignorant, or anxious, his form of manipulation and hate. Which makes it necessary for you to respond in your own words and emotions. Keep up the good work.

          87. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Kunte Kinte doesn’t need to try to make you feel guilty, ignorant or anxious. You are pretty good at accomplishing that for yourselves.

          88. SUZANNE M. says

            MAKES OUR WORLD BETTER….HOW? IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BE AROUND DIFFERENT PEOPLE. THEN DON’T BUT KEEP YOUR HATE TO YOURSELF.IT’S JUST SO DAMN OLD.

          89. river says

            Sit your Larda$$ down and shad up your pie hole, race baiter! You’re the kind of mindless race pimp that creates division by telling others what to think and say. Somebody musta died and left you in charge of race relations.

          90. SUZANNE M. says

            RIVER, QUITE HONESTLY, I COULD CARE LESS ABOUT HOW YOU ACT OR WHAT YOU THINK. YOU JUST SHOWED ALL OF US WHO YOU ARE. I’M NOT TELLING ANYONE WHAT TO THINK OR SAY…..ONLY SUGGESTED TO THINK….WHICH YOU SEEM TO BE UNCAPABLE OF DOING…..SO EXACTLY HOW AM I A RACE BAITER…..THE RESPONSE YOU GAVEE I HIT YOUR NERVE….DON’T LET ANOTHER PERSON CONTROL YOU WHICH IS WHAT YOU JUST DID……………..SO FULL OF HATE

          91. river says

            You’re right, you don’t care, you’re just so incognizant of telling others what to think about and act towards race that you impulsively tell others what NOT to say when they have adequate reason to express themselves. Like a race baiting ding bat you impulsively tell others what they’re “better than”… Did someone die and leave you in charge of racial equality, equity, or truth justice and the American Way? I think not! Just because Kevin called that obvious troll, Kunte Kinte, does not convey you the right to be as critically judgmental, as any other racist, that would be your obvious hypocrisy and race baiting offense. You’re just as full of hate as the next person, but too mentally impotent to know it. So if you think you’re put here to be the pool lifeguard in charge of saving trolls from drowning in their own race baiting motivation, then I would suggest you get outa the pool, you’re sinking fast.

          92. SUZANNE M. says

            WELL….RIVER WHY DON’T YOU TELL US ALL HOW YOU REALLY FEEL…….I AM GUESSING THAT YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE RASCIST….WHO IS STOPPING YOU? YOU ARE ONE ANGRY DUDE. LET SOME SUN INTO YOUR LIFE…….

          93. AfricanTraveler1 says

            You mean “elected by a minority of the citizens of this country.” Right now he has the lowest approval ratings going into his presidency than any president in many, many decades. 3 million more people voted for Hillary than for Trump.

          94. Kevin Lorka says

            That is why there is an electoral college. Otherwise the Liberals on the left Coast and the Give Me More Welfare, Food Stamps and Child Care voters would be electing someone who taxes the middle class to pay for their Social Welfare Programs. You can give all your money to these illegal citizens.

          95. mac12sam12 says

            Bill Clinton won twice and he didn’t have the popular vote either. We vote by county and for President Trump it was an electoral landslide. You guys are down to 18 governors and have lost thousands of seats thanks to Hussein Obama’s failed policies.

          96. river says

            Laffable, estimates are that Kill-Larry received 25 million dead and illegal votes. Are you sure you can do the math?

          97. AfricanTraveler1 says

            You must believe loads of “alternate facts.” Thanks for the laugh.

          98. river says

            Alternative fact: A liberal 1/2 wit with common sense and emotional stability.

          99. SUZANNE M. says

            I WOULD RESPECTFULLY, STUDY THE REASON WE HAVE THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE…..THE MAN HAS ONLY BEEN IN OFFICE A FEW DAYS,,,HE IS DOING WHAT HE SAID. UNLIKE SO MANY BEFORE HIM…HE IS BRASH…AND IS A PIG,,,BUT THINK ABOUT CONVERSATIONS THAT ALL OF US HAVE HAD ABOUT THE OPPOSITE SEX..WOMEN ARE NO BETTER THAN MEN AT TIMES. SO GET OVER I HAVE WORKED WITH MANY A CONSTRUCTION WORKERS SO I KNOW WHAT THEY TAKE ABOUT AND TRUMP HAS WORKED WITH CONSTRUCTION PEOPLE ALL HIS LIFE…….LET’S NOT BE HYPOCRITICAL, WE HAVE MOST LIKELY DONE IT OURSELVES. I BELIEVE HE WANTS TO PROTECT US ALL FROM THE TERRORISM AND KILLING….WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT…….FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.

          100. river says

            Hate is NOT a bad thing… in fact, it’s an emotion that’s often times necessary for rational decisions.

          101. SUZANNE M. says

            YOUR RIGHT……..AS LONG AS IT IS HATRED TOWARD ABORTION, VIOLENCE AGAINST CHILDREN AND WOMEN , PEOPLE WHO ARE DIFFERENT THAN US,DRUGS AND THE STUPIDITY THAT IS RUINING SO MANY LIVES, PEOPLE GOING HUNGRY IN A COUNTRY OF PLENTY, ELDER ABUSE, ANIMAL ABUSE, HATRED TOWARD THE PEOPLE THAT ARE HERE TO PROTECT US, DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN, HATRED TOWARD SOMEONE THAT DOES NOT AGREE WITH YOU,…..AS FAR AS RATIONAL DECISIONS GO……HITLER THOUGHT HE WAS RATIONAL WITH HIS HATRED…..I REALLY DON’T NEED TO CONTINUE, RIVER, I DON’T THINK YOU ARE A STUPID PERSON….WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENED TO YOU THAT MAKES YOU SPEAK THIS WAY….EXAMINE THAT AND MAYBE YOU COULD CHANGE ALL THAT NEGATIVE BULLSHIT YOUR PUTTING INTO YOUR WORLD.YOU HAVE A REALLY GOOD WEEKEND.

          102. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Oh, Suzanne, let him enjoy his bigotry. He must have few pleasures in life and still deserves a little release and fun.

          104. river says

            Prejudice is NOT hate you imbecile… it means to pre judge, but of course you can douse yourself in all the PC that makes you feel like you’re some kind of intellectual giant, fact is it sounds as though you haven’t a clue what pity means or how debilitating it is on the self. Furthermore, if it elevates your lowly esteem to tell others what to think or feel, I’d say you’ve got some miserable control and guilt issue and frankly it bothers me not to be actual about emotions as it obviously does you. Guilt breeds inadequacy, stop hating the color of your own skin, and let me worry about mine.

          105. SUZANNE M. says

            RIVER , PC, HELL NO,NOT AN INTELLECTUAL GIANT, PITY….IS THAT WHAT YOU HAVE ?SELF PITY …GUILT, NO…..PITY . CAN BE SELF IMPOSED…SOMETHING SOMEONE SAID OR DID TO MAKE SOMEONE FEEL INADEQUATE AND THE PERSON WHO WAS INFLICTED, REACTING TO IT IN AND SELF PITYING WAY….I AM NOT TELLING YOU OR ANY ONE ELSE HOW TO THINK OR FEEL….I AM SIMPLY SUGGESTING THAT IF SELF PITY IS WHAT YOU FEEL, THEN FIGURE OUT WHY AND TELL WHOM EVER DID THIS TO SOMEONE TO GO FUCK OFF. AND GROW A SPINE.MY SELF ESTEEM IS GOOD.IF YOU THINK I DON’T HAVE FEELINGS ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE NATION YOUR SO WRONG….IT MAKES ME ANGRY…BUT WHAT THE HELL WILL MY ANGER DO FIX ANYTHING….YOU CAN’T REALLY JUDGE AUTHENTICALLY UNTIL YOU WALK IN ANOTHERS SHOES.TO WAKE UP EVERYDAY , LOOKING IN THE MIRROR AND KNOW…THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO AUTOMATICALLY JUDGE YOU WHEN YOU SEE THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN. HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT THAT. PREJUDICE IN PART CARRIES HATE WITH IT.YOU SURE AS HELL HAVE NO PROBLEM TELLING ME WHAT YOU THINK OF ME AND LIKE YOU , YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW ME, EXCEPT WHAT YOU ASSUME ABOUT ME.GUILT….ABOUT WHAT?????? REGRETS, OF COURSE,,,WE ARE ALL HUMAN. THE COLOR OF MY SKIN WAS NOT A CHOICE, NEITHER WAS IT FOR ANYONE ELSE WE ….ALLLL…..BLEED RED.

            Oh lookie, the hateful gas bag out from under the porch is snarling and showing her teeth like a hate filled progressive K9. This K9 thinks it’s hateful to speak out, but when she growls the self righteous hateful race baiter becomes a snarling swine of stupidity. I can prove my sanity, blog bitch, but can you still not stand your lowly race baiting self? I would suggest some EST would calm your larda$$ down in a hurry.

KNOCK YOUR SELF OUT …YOUR JUST SO FUNNY TRYING TO FIND THE WORST WORDS TO INSULT ME….KEEP GOING…..IT’S SO FUNNY……HAVE A PRODUCTIVE DAY….NOW I THINK I WILL GO PAINT A PRETTY PICTURE.

          113. river says

            The only picture that a bloviating gas bag can paint is some paint by numbers wall hanging of Kunta Kinte’ from a whinebag movie… fantasy and delusions of the emotionally unstable left. Are you sure that Hollywood hasn’t asked you to rag tie your hair and scream RACE!! at voting booths on weekends? I know Pelsoi Galore is looking for new inspiration from the race baiting left, got time? I really shouldn’t pick ya, it’s not nice to thump on dumb animals.

            African wrong wrong, you see what God in heaven put together no man can tear apart, it was the prayers of millions of Christians all over the world that God expose the corruptions in Hillary and in the white house, God gave us even more he exposed the pedophiles in the upper elites in the white house, pizzagate was exposed why GOD SAW THE BLOOD HEARD THE CRIES OF LITTLE CHILDREN BEING KIDNAPPED TAKEN FROM THEIR PARENTS, used for sex slaves, raped, tortured the sacrficed to their God satan then eaten, their blood dranked the sins hidden in the dark God exposes in the light it was prayers that has moved america to vote for president trump IN GOD WE DO TRUST https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/516b07d5848cb0ceb47c3f5b2919d60e32429ea9da5422df9d400cf3accc9917.jpg

            Yes, Brenda, evil exists in the world. Other than vote for an evil man (Trump), what do you actually do in life to lessen the effects of evil. Talk is cheap. Action is a lot more important.

          137. mac12sam12 says

            Do you know what Trump has done? He’s kept all his promises unlike Hussein obama.

          138. Brenda Sinclair says

            yes daily we fight against principalities, meaning satan and his children, I am a nurse practitioner, life is about helping others, i believe that with God all things are possible, i have seen miracles happen, i have seen families lose their loved ones.. I also work with abused women and children. i see alot evil, hurt and pain, heal a child,save an adult…this is me, and what about you?

          139. river says

            Liberal progressives are evil…. “Evil is the absence of God” , ~~~~ Albert Einstein, but of course, the God hating progressives know better, right Traveler?

            NO YOU DO NOT PREACH , YOU VENT HATRED. I’LL SAY ONE THING ABOUT YOUR MOUTH IT’S SAD. I WASN’T TRYING TO TREAT YOU OR ANYONE ELSE.

AND HOW CAN I POSSIBLY CARE WHEN I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT YOUR ISSUES ARE………I WASN’T EVEN TRYING TO “HELP” YOU OR ANYONE ELSE…SO YOU JUST KEEP ON FEELING ANGRY AND HURT……..IT’S SEEMS TO MAKE YOU SATISFIED TO BLAST THOSE WHO MAY NOT AGREE WITH YOU….ME…..I DON’T CARE IF PEOPLE DISAGREE WITH ME.

            Since religion is about fictional fairies and such that the religious, when asked to offer proof for their beliefs, cannot do, religious claptrap like yours has no valid place in this discussion.

          145. Herb1949 says

            To impeach someone, they have to break the law. Having a personality that some idiots don’t like isn’t enough.

            Personality is not an impeachable offense…

          146. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Herb, I never said he would be impeached because of his personality itself. His personality will cause him to commit an impeachable offence. Character is destiny. Think about it.

          147. Herb1949 says

            What you are missing is that he is smart, he will never do anything until he has ran it by lawyers to make sure it is legal.
            No, he won’t be impeached.
            If he did many of the things obama did, he would be impeached. Because the GOP wouldn’t put up with him doing illegal things like the dims did with obama.

          148. AfricanTraveler1 says

            He is smart in certain ways, but he is impulsive. You are wrong if you think he will run possible actions through lawyers before doing things. He will act first out of anger and insecurity. Clearly he does not know how the laws, except those relating to bankruptcy, work. Character is destiny. That will be his downfall.

          149. river says

            Dumb. His personality is NOT a high crime or misdemeanor. However, you might be criminally stupid.

          150. AfricanTraveler1 says

            It isn’t the fact that his personality is extraordinarily flawed that is against the law. It is that his personality will cause him to do things against the law and get himself impeached. Character is fate, and his fate will be to get himself into such legal trouble that he will be impeached.

          151. river says

            When you cant tell the difference between delusion and reality… that would be psychosis… and you got plenty of it. I know, you cant wait for Trump to reuse a postage stamp so you can quiver with excitement.

          152. mac12sam12 says

            We have a majority in both houses and he hasn’t done anything to deserve getting impeached, but liberals can keep dreaming. His cabinet is also top notch and they all have executive experience unlike the last administration that was filled with ideologues that had no clue.

          153. Mr Rollo says

            Clearly you are a soros nazi sympathizer, and, more than that, I bet my house you send money to soros.

          156. AfricanTraveler1 says

            As the saying goes, “A mouth can say anything.” Character is destiny. Because of this, Trump will be impeached.

          157. edward martis says

            And then what will happen ? The old rule of Physics ‘For any action; there is an opposite reaction’……Hang onto your panty-hose……….Do you honestly believe that the US military forces will let that happen ? The US Army loves Trump……At long last a President worthy of great respect…….Good Luck in your fairy-land mind…………………………

          158. AfricanTraveler1 says

            And what exactly is your proof that Holder took documents and hid them ? Sounds like “false news” to me.

          159. Tiger says

            You truly are uninformed. I watched all the hearings, Holder took the documents that Congress requested and Obama put them under his privilege you don’t know that? What the Hell do you people know I am just about fed up with the lot of you.

          160. AfricanTraveler1 says

            If you are fed up, I have a wonderful idea — go away.

          161. mork says

            That’s what all of us Americans want, for morons like you to go to Nigeria.

          162. AfricanTraveler1 says

            I prefer Cote d’Ivoiire. Much nicer place.

          163. Tiger says

            I have a better idea you go away not me rioting and calling for a Coup, War, Blood letting and Revolution. Can’t stand the heat get out of my kitchen. Cause I will continue to fry your sorry ass with the Flaming Truth.

          164. mork says

            I would love to beat him with a rubber hose.

          165. Tiger says

            Any instrument of buggering them up would be good.

          166. Tiger says

            Obama evoked Executive Privilege over the Fast and Furious documents keeping congress from seeing them. Now Trump needs to release them or find out if O destroyed them, either way again O and Holder could be prosecuted.

            Along with many others. Did you know that Chuckie Schumer was telling mobs at a rally to “Dump Trump”, can you believe the insubordination?

          175. mork says

            Yes…the likes of chucklehead chuckie, traitor McCain and the other useless rinos, it’s time they get retired permanently.
            Or the same people who took care of dirty Harry Reid should take care of business.

            Ok. I’m sorry too. I read more. We are on the same side fighting the same battle against these libertards. I take back my remark. With the sincerest of apologies.

          181. Mark Shaw says

            Wait I was agreeing wth your comment I think I directed it at the wrong person my mistake it was supposed to go to the African ibisil

          182. mork says

            Yes he is a tree hugging moron.

          183. mork says

            You must be one of those communist pinko sjw soros morons. Go hack your nutsack off so you don’t procreate. You libertards gotta go.

          184. Mark Shaw says

            You got me wrong but I did mistakenly comment on you when I was trying for someone else

          185. AfricanTraveler1 says

            You mean impeach the President ? It is going to happen. Character is destiny, and Trump’s characater will cause him to be impeached. He is impulsive and cannot help himself.

          186. Tiger says

            Please hold your breath as you wait for it.

          187. mork says

            Make the world a better place. ..African butthole….hold your breath forever. Save our precious water, Liberals die off.

          188. Tiger says

            They won’t they will continue with this foolish notion, that their leaders continue to enforce that Trump will be Impeached.

          189. mork says

            Typical liberal democrap propaganda and rhetoric. Can you imagine African numb nuts teaching our kids.
            That’s our problem with these nuts. When I was in college all the kids who couldn’t get into the real colleges ended up in education. Thus our problem

          190. mork says

            I’m not saying all teachers are bad but African numbnuts is a good example.
            He thinks he’s brilliant but all he could aspire to was an English teacher. He is probably better at homemaking….lmao.

          191. Tiger says

            Big problem.

          192. AfricanTraveler1 says

            You must be referring to the time(s) I saw you illiterate conservatives babbling without any grasp of basic English grammar and I jokingly replied, “Two weeks ago I couldn’t even spell English grammar and now I is one.” Guess you missed the sarcastic point of that.

          193. Mark Shaw says

            Keep dreaming jerkoff I’m sure you have no idea of what it takes to impeach a president and the is the fact there is nothing any one has to justify it so keep crying looser. Maby you should go back to coloring books.

          194. AfricanTraveler1 says

            You are sure of many things that are not true.

          195. Mark Shaw says

            Well bring out you evidence then

          196. AfricanTraveler1 says

            What a great idea — “Impeach the President” coloring books !

          197. teachersaide says

            Character? YOU hate Trump, and I’ll presume YOU thought HRC was the Best Thing since Penicillin! CLINTONS have NO saving grace, as far as “character” goes, and are some of the BIGGEST Liars in the world. Maybe YOU are too young to remember when WJC Plead NO CONTEST, to “Obstruction of Justice, Perjury, & Witness Tampering”? But, Surely, YOU remember ALL the LIES about Benghazi, Private email server, & Obamacare? THOSE were OK? WERE you complaining about those LIES & Character flaws, when they happened?

          198. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Chapter is destiny. All your rants and denials cannot change that. It is just a matter of time before Trump is either impeached or removed from office for the inability to function sanely. Character is destiny.

          199. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Me “too young”? I personally and clearly remember Joseph McCarthy. I was there back then.

            We are discussing Trump and the fact that character is destiny. Nice try to attempt to deflect the conversation to other people. It is just a matter of time before Trump is removed from office.

          200. AfricanTraveler1 says

            You jump to too many conclusions with your feet firmly planted on ignorance. (Now there’s a metaphor for ya !) I dislike Trump and his policies strongly. I was not thrilled by Hillary, but given the alternative I certainly favored her. I remember a lot, and am probably considerably older and more experienced than you. Trump is a pathological liar. Many peopler incuding about 50 psychiatrists, have observed this. If this is the character of the man you favor as President, fine. But remembe,t character is destiny, and he will probably not last 2 years. Character is like gravity. The effects are predictible and inexorable, and there is nothing anyone, including conservatives, can do about that. Trump is the person we are discussing, so your attempt to change the subject to discussions of other people is an obvious red herring intended to divert attention from probably the most flawed man this nation has ever had as President. Character is destiny. Let’s sit back and watch this saga unfold.

          201. teachersaide says

            WHY not? I had to “watch” & experience the DISASTER that was the Obama presidency, including Benghazi DEATHS & LIES, Obamacare/ACA LIES & Failures, the RISE of ISIS while BHO was making excuses for terrorists world wide, etc.

          202. AfricanTraveler1 says

            You fearful, ignorant twit ! Thank goodness you were a teacher’s aide and not a teacher. (At least I hope you were only an aide.) Your man Trump is goosestepping towards impeachment. Obama, no matter what you think, will go down historically as one of the best presidents this country has had, and no amount of conservative rant,which will get flushed like sXXX down the toilet of history, will change that. Character is destiny, as I say over and over and over, and Trump, a pathological liar who may very well be suffering from serious mental illness, cannot change that any more than he can make gravity push people up instead of down.

          203. teachersaide says

            Twit? I’ll take that as step above a NIT WIT! BHO accumulated MORE DEBT, than almost the entire rest of the Presidents ever elected, in 8 yrs. IN his “Infinite wisdom”, he said that anyone who couldn’t get the DEBT under control in 4 yrs had NO business running for re-election-> However, that did NOT Stop him from running again. There was the “wonderful” Apology Tour, plus he BOWED to the King of Saudi Arabia. EVERY Promise made about ACA was A LIE! If You liked your MD, many did NOT get to KEEP their MD. IF You Liked your healthcare plan, about 10 MILLION did NOT get to KEEP that plan. EVERY family did NOT SAVE $2500 on healthcare premiums- as a matter of fact, I KNOW of NO ONE who saved $2500 on premiums- Of course, ALL the family, friends, neighbors that I KNOW, all work for a LIVING! I find it amazing, that with HRC as Sec of State for 4 years, getting emails and phone calls from HRC, that OUR “esteemed” President NEVER caught on to the FACT that she was using an ILLEGAL Private Email Server! THEN, there’s the FREQUENT and pervasive LIES associated with the BENGHAZI Debacle! I’ve heard the HEROES who survived that major screw up, rescuing State Dept Staff from TERRORISTS, SPEAK! I READ the Book they WROTE, “13 Hours”! EVERY military official involved with troops in Iraq, advised BHO to NOT remove ALL our troops, d/t possible instability. GUESS WHAT? THEY were RIGHT! Thank you President Obama, for ISIS; tens of thousands of innocent men/women/children being tortured, raped, maimed, murdered by the “JV Team”. And, THANK YOU for announcing to the WORLD the Identity of SEAL Team 6, who took out Bin Laden- Less than 6 months after this announcement, terrorists shot down helicopter with SEAL Team 6 on board, and over 20 were KILLED! BHO NEVER Knew when to keep his Big Fat Mouth SHUT!

          204. AfricanTraveler1 says

            It goes without speaking that it is a wonder someone as stupid as yourself is able to walk and chew gum at the same time. Your version of ObamaCare is so inaccurate that it shows your are almost totally unconnected with reality. Let’s see how you Repubicans can improve ObamaCare without throwing 20 million people off healthcare. If you are unable to see that Trump is a pathological liar, as he has been called by many psychiatrists, then there is little hope that you have even a vestige of critical thinking ability. Character is destiny, and Trump’s destiny, due to his character, will be to become impeached or worse, and there i s nothing your whining can do about that, any more than you can force gravity to make things go up instead of down.

          205. teachersaide says

            IF the GOP does NOTHING about Obamacare, it will IMPLODE! Costs have skyrocketed, insurance companies are getting out of quite a few states, and MANY Obamacare “users” have NO CHOICE! IF that is YOUR definition of “Success”, SPARE me YOUR Values!

          206. AfricanTraveler1 says

            I see that you, the Village Idiot, have returned after several evenings during which you did not post. I wish I were able to see the expression on your face when you discover how Trumpcare really screws you.

          207. teachersaide says

            I worked my entire life, had medical insurance my entire life, and NEVER had to rely on ACA/Obamacare. I am now retired, and on Medicare, for which I PAID every pay day, for over 40 YEARS! I do have a life, but got wrapped up in videos tonight, provided by “Tiger”. LIBERAL elitists live in their own La La Land, where they don’t have to hear/fear FACTS!

          208. teachersaide says

            I wish I could SEE YOUR FACE, when Obamacare IMPLODES, by the end of the year.

          209. AfricanTraveler1 says

            Evidently you have swallowed the Republican lie that Obamacare is going to “implode,” whatever you think you mean by that. It won’t. And this controversy over Obamacare makes it more and more likely that we will have single-payer healthcare in the foreseeable future.

          210. teachersaide says

            Single payer was WHAT I figured, when Obama the DEM’S passed this POS BILL! However, NOW it’s the DEM’S who are desperate to FIX Their “perfect bill”/ ACA. A LIE with EVERY Promise!

            my first stop would be the Berkeley ACP (6501 Telegraph Av. ‘used-book’ store) and then off to LBGT Cultural / Heritage Museum (corner of Market St and Castro St;) where the 5 by 6 ft…Rainbow gay flag flies——and then off to the SFO City Hall chambers are——If you are so inclined go to the (google) AMERICAN COMMUNIST PARTY- NORTHWEST REGION and find their 35+ nation-wide offices—–Most are PO boxes; but some have real addresses; like mine (used–book store 6501 etc)—Find closest one to you and drop in—–I have at least 12 ‘stink-bombs’ I bought off E BAY for a coupla bucks and are saving them for the 6501 place—–Bzerkly is about 45 miles away from I live BUT I do have a few mosques within 5 miles from me—–I dumped a large bag of ‘pork-rinds’ over their fence; at night, awhile back……..give it a year or 2 and folks will be tossing home made grenades over their fence—For whatever; go to You Tube and type in HOW TO MAKE A WW2 HAND GRENADE LIVE—–Buy a ‘dummy’ WW2 grenade off google and with about 6$ you can make that DUMMY live====I am glad ISIS/ Al Quida is not aware of this…..All materials included would cost next to zip and the whole process would only take you 7 minutes——Another goodie from the OLD (1971) “Anarchists Cookbook” ; which was given to me by a CHP dude on the GGB—(gave him a bunch of items from my Supply Sgt’s buddy large store room—Gratis)—–Buy an M-80 or M-100 ‘firecracker’ and then dip it in a can of glue—remove M-80 from can of glue and let excess drip off—-wait until glue gets ‘tacky’ and then roll it in a pile of BB’s and wait until dry—–repeat process 4-5 times—–Initially get a soda straw and slide it over the fuze of the M-80 to protect fuze===or buy a cheap roll of ‘cannon fuze’ and glue it to short M-80 fuze for extended time OR just dip it in; not quite up to the fuze and go on from there……..OR a can of Coca-Cola poured into a box of Corn-flakes—-result ; clorine gas—-There is so much info on the web it is scary——-Circa 1981 (Long Beach/ south Belmont Shores) on the beach/ strip area—- I gave my buddy neighbor 2 each M-18 “Smoke Grenade” RED—-So one fine weekend Sat. nite when I was doing the CA NG thing in my ‘crew-chief’/ Huey–bit—-North of Barstow, CA area—he cut through the alley walked over to the next street and there was a very crowded gay bar on a Sat. nite–corner—with people inside and outside—–and when a small fracus occurred about 10 ft. from the ‘door-bouncers’ and everybody was looking in that direction—-I had previously given him a used army field jacket and he had already straightened out the ‘pin’—he slipped the ‘pin’ out with his thumb while holding onto the ‘spoon’ in his right pocket and rolled it onto the dance floor and then walked home—–about 5 minutes later he heard fire-engine’s and police car sirens; so he walked back over (2 minute walk) and lo and behold; heavy red smoke is pouring out from windows and doors—-Once they go off; they get HOT quikly—–The area was packed with ‘gays’ and nobody realized what was going; until the M-18 made a soft popping noise; that nobody noticed or heard anyways AND then this VOUMEOUS thick cloud of red smoke started filling the place and the Hershy- Highway Humpers started emptying out to the wide-sidewalk area……..When I came home; late Sun. nite; he told me what he did and I laughed my ass off…Hope you found this entertaining——He still has that second M-18 RED as far as I know——I still have access to them; being retired CA NG—-Who shall I terrorize NEXT ? Muzzies or gays ? Either is fine by me……….

          217. Tiger says

            LMAO I like the mosque bit. In England the Muzzie wanted to build a mega mosque and so the people went and covered the entire area with pigs blood, that did it. The Gay people don’t bother me I was on the stage from age 5 and always had Gay friends. But back then they worked and kept their lives private like the rest of us and they would never dress like clowns and do a Gay Parade, everything has changed has it not?

            As to all the goodies you speak of I am a Combat Support Army nurse since 1988 I have the Ranger Joe survival and tactics books. Good stuff. Yes if these Muzzies start up the way they are in Europe we will see more and more mosques covered in blood of pigs, and pigs heads etc everywhere. They are running Europe over because the people unarmed. You know how they love killing, raping, hurting unarmed people. Matter of fact the Japanese said after WWII one of the reasons they didn’t attack inside our perimeter was guns.

            TIGER—in spite of what you may hear—the mosques are NOT paid for by local muzzies—-There is a Ministry of Religious Affairs in Riyadh that shells out billions in mosque construction all over the world—the final thing in mosque construction is to have a human-footprint; either brass or a real human footprint in wet cement—–the purpose of this is to say “THIS IS OURS !!!” referring to the area they are in….and the West has not a clue…..I spent 3 yrs. in Saudi Arabia (Province of Mecca)—I lived 25 miles from that evil city (guns/drugs/black African Christian slaves )—and know muzzies VERY well…I am a walking/talking encyclopedia on muzzies—also; the holy mullahs of mecca get a ‘cut’ of the slave sale profits…..They laugh them-selves silly; because the West is so oblivious as to what Islam really is—–We are the stupidest people in the world; in that we can not SEE what is going on …..The Western mind is a polar opposite of the Islamic mind……I have ‘stink-bombs; (e-bay) which I will drop off (sooner or later) at noon prayers on Friday (very crowded—-) at my nearest mosque; about 2 miles away—I have seen Saudi females slapped in the face/ punched in the face and stomach , stomped and kicked while they are on the ground screaming—–The rule of thumb is NEVER get involved with another mans family/ personal business with his female relatives….NEVER !!! …..and I just kept on walking—–This applies to the average joe Saudi male….Just walk on by—-Even the Saudi police will stay away; more or less——SA has been referred to as the worlds largest insane-asylum; which it IS !!—-If a ‘slave’ gets seriously sick; he is taken out to the desert south of Mecca and shot—-Health care is VERY expensive and the purchase price of a ‘new replacement’ slave is only $650 a pop–Dirt cheap; compared to a stay in a Saudi hospital; for some(?) days…………5,000 yrs of VERY tite tribal inbreeding (mothers ‘marrian’ sons……Sons marrian’ sisters etc has produced a race of 5-star lunatics; in all ways possible; that you can think of …..Nothin says lovin’ like marryln yer cousin (or sister/mother/ father etc…..) and now you know why the mid-east is so hopelessy/ terminally fucked up; forever……..I did have a large bag of ‘pork rinds’ that I opened and dumped over the low fence of my local mosque—-Two pounds of ‘pork rinds’ for $1.00 via the local 7/11—-How could I go wrong ?—–I did this about 10 PM—–Are you familiar with ‘stink-bombs’ ? About 1 1/2″ long 3/8′ in. wide and glass—–I will just drop some on the floor and watch the muzzies step on them and walk out the mosque door—-These things smell like an Alabama diareahh filled out-house on an August day at 2 PM—–…….Enjoy ! Ever see a common Toyota pick-up do 120+ mph into the side of bridge ? Very entertaining; ; not hardly; and messy/ bloody; beyond belief—-A ‘head’ here and ‘leg’ there; including little kids and babies and ‘guts’ all over the place….Just another day in the KSA…..par for the course… a fu–ing slaughterhouse——or my favorite with Abdul approaching a very crowded; pedestrian filled intersection at 100 mph; coming in from the desert .areas—–All you can see is ‘flying’ thobes (white dress of Saudi men) with at least 12 Saudis in the air; at the same time—-Total body count ; more than 30+ or more—–If I was born a female in SA I would shoot myself; at my earliest convience——and avoid the rush……Saudi females are ‘livestock’….No more/ No less—–Saudi males treat their camels; much better……………………….Have a pleasant day….KEEP MUZZIES OUT OT OF THE USA or we will look like Germany etc—————-

            Loved the post. Shear and utter truth. I am a Combat Support nurse since 1988 and I served in two wars. For Shield/Storm we had 6 weeks of terrorist training. During this time we were introduced to the Qur’an and Muhammad. We were told it was an enemy that we had not seen around since the Middle Ages. Then they explained why. We were shown video, also in this war of decapitations, mutilations, impaling, hanging, stoning all of it. They pretty much told us if captured pop the cyanide tablet you will sew into the hem of your BDU, due to the torture you will undergo. They were right.

            When coming home I began to study all of this. For years now, after coming home from this war I have tried to tell people. To encourage people to know this enemy. To encourage preachers to educate their flocks. I even met Joe Kaufman, Bridgette Gabriel, was in touch with Frank Gaffney, Daniel Pipes all of the original fighters. All of us booed and hooed as bally foo. I know, as does anyone who served, saw the results of RPG, IED, Suicide Attacks and Fire Fights, understand how filthy, lying, underhanded and truly dangerous they are to themselves to the world understand the lack of knowing the truth has put us all in danger in this country.

            In this war they staked children to the ground by their calve muscle if they helped us, killed babies and cooked them and made the family eat them if they helped us, put suicide bombs on children and threw them in front of our tanks etc. knowing we would stop for children, rigged their cars up with their children with bombs and drove the cars up to us and the parents ran. They mutilated our dead soldiers. On and on yes I know what they are. I know who pays for the mosques. I understand the different sects of Islam. I know about Sharia Law and the treatment of women. In Afghanistan the girls and women burned themselves alive to escape the Taliban. There was a huge article on it.

            Like your style and good that you do what you do, as for us over here, we are still stuck with Left lug nuts, Obama, Deep State and One World Order groups fighting Trump all the way. But we are armed and those of us who understand this enemy will continue to fight and try to help Trump secure our country. Love the posts.

            TIGER—In those 3 yrs that I spent in the KSA; (Mecca area) I NEVER saw any compassion or kindness; whatsoever—-It just did not exist—–but I did see MANY bodies from highway smash-up’s—- Another way to look at that is hundreds of mangled dead “nose-pickers” and that alone; put a smile on my face; except for the young kids/ babies with their heads ripped off……….Seeing this carnage so much; numbs the human senses; which it does……..The ONLY good thing about Sharia Islamic Law is that murder/rape/ armed robbery , will get you a date with very sharp sword with in 40 days of conviction—–In the city I lived in At Ta’if (place of coolness) the Sudanese head-chopper was busy for 8 hours a day/ 6 days a week; including breaks and lunch..(mainly for heavy drug smuggling)….The Saudi’s do NOT chop heads……This is done by foreign muslim dudes….Something to do with the Koran……….The Koran could be a written script of the “SAW” movies; which I have not seen and would not want to…….As Bill O’ Reilly said “SAW” 1/2/ and 3 were movies for sadists/ masochists……….Mecca is basically sea-level 115o and 98 % humidity…..Where I lived was 105o MAX and no humidity to speak of …7,000 ft—with 60o nights; very pleasant….—The very U-turn switch back 2 lane road down to sea-level was a hairy SOB—–Saudis could care less about the single yellow line, dividing the 2 lane road…From the bottom of that road; looking up you could see a fair amount of cars that defied the law of physics and went over the cliffs; to meet Allah————–5,000 yrs of very tite tribal inbreeding finally paid off……..With the advent of oil; the muzzies were off and running again—-The Crusader’s shut them down in 1100 A.D. pretty much; but then along came oil and they picked up to where they left off—–An 800 year respite from these crazies…So much for that !! But DO remember that Islam is a Religion of Peace and Love; as Ocrap reminded us; not to long ago…………….

            My father worked for Brown and Root and spent over 2 years all over the ME and told us about the Daily Executions in the squares. I think Americans don’t realize that they bring children to these mutilations. You are right, after awhile all the savagery you see numbs you, I know what I watched my family could never see it and not be damaged and no way in this world could American children see such savagery without going hysterical and being damaged. We who have seen things are damaged, we have our own demons and sometimes like being an RN and me and my friends talking, my children would say mother don’t want to hear this. Americans MUST WAKE-UP.

            I watched from day one the invasion of 75% grown men into Europe. I was on European sites and I was saying hey these are all men. They immediately started causing trouble, refusing to get onto the trains and go to the camps for vetting, they had sit ins, got violent, threw food and water at police in Sweden, Hungary and everywhere they crossed over. They where tearing down border fences fighting and it took the Europeans three days to say these are all men. I lived in Europe for 4 years, traveled extensively, alone and Paris had terrible Muslim problems then, the German police put the Turkish gangs in their place with billy clubs and Dresden was solid white, not one black or dark skinned person, it was really something to see, but all over troubles were already brewing. They should have known better but that One World Order and UN Plan 21/2030 was well on the road until Trump in America and before him the UK found it’s head and now most of Europe is fighting the filth. But nobody, I mean nobody showed any of this in America. Stupidity is not bliss.

            Yup; the USA is way beyond psychotically stupid and the muzzies laugh themselves silly—-and SFO is the ‘leader’ of that ‘pack’-where common sense and logic is a terminal disease——The truth is extinct and has been since 1968; here in the ‘People’s Soviet Socialist Republik”; which it TRULY IS—–If you would like to see what Sophia, Bulgaria looked like in ’68; come here to Berkeley; ESPECIALLY 6501 Telegraph Av.

            OHHHHH that makes sense. He is called the Good King in Israel. He came to speak with congress, my congressman told me asking O to help them form a Coalition to stop ISIS. Of course O refused so without O knowing Jordon, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Egypt and others joined and didn’t tell O when they were going to bomb. But I see you know that.

            You know the face of the ME is going to change. The Arabs and Persians been fighting for thousands of years. O thought he was handing the ME to his Iranian brothers that he loves so much but instead he brought the ME together. O had many ties to Iran through those in his cabinet ant closest to him. Kerry’s daughter married an Iranian and the very man Kerry did the Iran Deal with was at his daughters wedding.

            You know Edward it was so blatantly apparent what O was and what he was doing and when he went full throttle at the end of his time he really put the turban on. If Trump doesn’t take out all of the snakes, I mean all of them then they will be back again.

            Here is something great from an old WWII vet. It is so true.

            Quote from a WWII veteran overhearing someone say that `You can’t bomb an ideology.”:

            “The hell you can’t, because we did it.

            These Muslims are no different than the [Imperial] Japanese.

            The Japs had their suicide bombers too, and we stopped them.

            What it takes is the resolve and will to use a level of brutality and violence that your generations can’t stomach.

            And until you can, this shit won’t stop. It took us on the beaches with
            bullets, clearing out caves with flame throwers, and men like LeMay
            burning down their cities, killing people by the tens of thousands.

            And then it took 2 atom bombs on top of it. Plus we had to bomb the shit out of German cities to get them to quit fighting.

            But, if that was what it took to win, we were willing to do it.

            Until you are willing to do the same – well I hope you enjoy this shit, because it ain’t going to stop!

            Back then, we had leadership, resolve, resources and determination.

            Today we’re afraid to hurt people’s feelings – and worry about which bathroom to piss in!”

            Trump has made several extremely serious mistakes from the beginning. First, he has alienated the Press by excluding the ones who write the truth. They will dig and dig and dig until they have found a myriad of ways to have him impeached, which will happen in two years or less, if he lasts that long. The second major mistake is that he has alienated the intelligence agencies, including the CIA. Have you ever wondered if the CIA played some part in Kenndy’s assassination ? I know I have.

          235. teachersaide says

            MSM has been DISHONEST for DECADES! IF a liberal does something, it’s OK, because his “heart is pure”> Conservative does same thing, and they are the “Spawn of Satan”! The PRESS has been going after DJT ever since he became the GOP candidate. They Ignored Benghazi, they Ignored the Private email server screw up, they Ignore ALL the LIES of Obamacare/ACA! They believe any & every BS LIE that came out of the mouths of BHO, HRC, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Donna Brasille, et al!

            And again he has the right. Remember Davidians? What did the Feds do to all of them? Burned women and children alike in that raid. They are in for a rude awakening and it will take President Trump taking a few and prosecuting them to get the message across.

            Obama is wrong, Trump executive order on travel does not discriminate on the basis of religion

            Jan.
            30, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick
            Manning today issued the following statement blasting former President Barack Obama’s statement via spokesperson Kevin Lewis that President Donald Trump’s executive order temporarily blocking travel from countries invoked by the 2015 exceptions to the visa waiver program stipulated under 8 U.S.C. Section 1187(a)(12),
            which include Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia,
            “discriminat[es] against individuals because of their faith or
            religion”:

            “The
            Trump executive order barring travel for 90 days from terror hotspots
            does not discriminate on the basis of religion, as Obama well knows. In
            2011 the State Department stopped processing refugees from Iraq for six
            months, not because of religion, but after the FBI caught al Qaeda terrorists in Kentucky who had snuck into the country posing as refugees.
            It is a fact that Obama himself as president issued three so-called
            212(f) travels bans, as presidents have broad authority to do so under 8 U.S.C. Section 1182(f), which
            was never repealed by the 1965 Immigration Act and therefore can only
            be read as a presidential exception in order for the two statutes to be
            read consistently. That is out 16 such travel active bans that were issued by presidents over the years prior to Trump’s inauguration.

            “The
            law states explicitly the president may ‘suspend the entry of all
            aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose
            on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate,’
            the same broad authority Trump is now relying upon in addition to his
            grant of executive power under Article II of the Constitution.

            “There
            are about 50 majority Muslim countries throughout the world. The Trump
            travel ban affects seven, which are known terror hotspots. In
            confronting radical Islam, focusing on those regions most affected by
            the conflict is a common-sense place to start. In Nov. 2015, before then-candidate Trump issued his own statement on this issue, Americans for Limited Government urged an even broader travel ban
            than what Trump has issued in light of the Paris terrorist attacks.
            Addressing this issue is long overdue, and will grant the U.S. the time
            it needs to reevaluate its broken immigration system and refugee
            programs, and if necessary, to expand these efforts in order to best
            protect the American people.”
