The title of this category says it all. Of course, we could have called it “Watch on the Potomac” – but then we decided to develop a category for that subject anyway. In pre-war Germany – it was called “the Rhine.” Same difference – different time, different geographical region.

Criminal Aliens Detained in Sanctuary NYC Include Gang Member, Rapists, Sex Offenders

ICE officers arrested and detained 41 criminal illegal immigrants in New York City, New York, which prides itself on being “sanctuary city.”

The criminal aliens detained were part of a targeted arrest operation by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.

Altogether, officers detained 22 illegal immigrants in New York City, 14 in Long Island, two in Rockland County, two in Orange County and one in Putnam County, according to WABC News.

Of the 41 criminal illegal immigrants, one was involved with the MS-13 gang, a criminal multinational syndicate. Many others were previously charged with rape of children, burglaries, sex crimes, drunk driving and drug distribution. Continue reading

“Organizing for Action” and Destabilizing Trump’s Presidency

O’Shadow

That infamous “community organizer” Barry Sotero, aka Barack Obama, is on the march again, seeking to tear down what he was not able to on his first go-round and making sure no one rebuilds on the Marxist rubble he created. He is using a non-profit 501c4 organization called Organizing for Action to do it.

While most presidents leave the office of president to the person that follows them, Mr. Obama has no intention of doing that. If he couldn’t destroy the country while he was in office then his next attempt will be to try to destroy the man who is trying to save it.

An article by Paul Sperry in the New York Times on February 11th explains how he plans to do just that. Mr. Sperry noted in his article that Comrade Obama was encouraged by the spate of anti-Trump protests that “spontaneously” erupted across the country (and do you wonder who paid for all of them)? Mr. Sperry observed: “Yes, Obama has an army of agitators, numbering more than 30,000–who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House. In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working…to set up what will effectively be a shadow government (emphasis mine) to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular ‘America First’ agenda.” Continue reading

Twenty Cool Uses Of Coca-Cola

While many of us love to drink an ice cold Coca-Cola, did you know that Coke can be used in a wide variety of ways other than mere consumption?

1. Pest Killer
If you’re searching for a new, original, and effective way to rid your property of pests, pour Coca-Cola into a small bowl and place it near your outdoor flowers and plants. The smell of this powerful soft drink will attract pests, prompting them to taste the cola, thus resulting in death by acidity. Continue reading

Mexicans Vow To Fight Trump By “Jamming US Courts” As Deportations Set To Surge

While much of the media airtime in the past few weeks has been dedicated to Trump’s ongoing legal battle with the US judicial system over his now halted immigration order temporarily blocking the entry of refugees and travelers from seven nations, a separate push to remove illegal immigrant from the US has quietly – or not so quietly – commenced in recent days, resulting in a deeply concerned, at times violent, response by some of the millions of illegal aliens residing in the US.

Schools are supposed to teach kids HOW to think for themselves, not WHAT to think.

So why are so many liberal teachers bullying and brain-washing children with their own intolerant views?

Are you sitting comfortably, children? Then I have a creative task for you. Tell me, is this poem from the Bush era, still relevant today?

‘When the president talks to god

Does he ever think that maybe he’s not?

That that voice is just inside his head

When he kneels next to the presidential bed

Does he ever smell his own bulls**t When the president talks to god.

I doubt it. I doubt it.’

Ephrata, WA — President Donald Trump frequently points to undocumented immigrants committing crimes to justify his immigration policy.

BLM Anti-Trump Protest In Seattle: ‘We Need To Start Killing People

WARNING: Offensive language from an offensive individual.

During an anti-Trump protest in Seattle this weekend, an activist associated with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement took to the megaphone to voice her support for, among other things, “killing people,” and “killing the White House.”

While she said that, another protester can be heard saying, “Burn it!

She also says, “White people, give your fucking money, your fucking house, your fucking property, we need it fucking all,” as another protester responds “reparations!

Fuck white supremacy, fuck the U.S. empire, fuck your imperialist ass lives. That shit gotta go.” Continue reading

The United States Is On The Precipice Of Widespread Civil Unrest
It doesn’t take much of a trigger to push extremely large crowds of very angry protesters into committing acts of rioting and violence.  And rioting and violence can ultimately lead to widespread civil unrest and calls for “revolution”.  The election of Donald Trump was perhaps the single most galvanizing moment for the radical left in modern American history, and we have already seen that a single move by Trump can literally cause protests to erupt from coast to coast within 48 hours. “…you would have to be blind not to see the hate, anger and frustration that are all growing like cancer in the hearts of our young people…This is a time for the peacemakers.“… (Continue to full article)

White House Fires Acting Attorney General Sally Yates

The White House on Monday fired Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, after she instructed Justice Department attorneys not to defend in court an executive order signed by President Donald Trump suspending immigration from seven countries.

Ms. Yates learned of her firing Monday evening, in a hand-delivered letter from the White House’s Office of Personnel, according to a person familiar with the matter. In a statement, the White House said Ms. Yates “betrayed the Department of Justice by refusing to enforce a legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States.”

Ms. Yates was replaced by Dana Boente, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, until Mr. Trump’s attorney general nominee, Jeff Sessions, is confirmed by the U.S. Senate, which could happen next week. (Continue Reading at the Wall Street Journal)

Grand opening of abandoned Walmart for illegals

United States residents voiced an uproar on social media over the opening of an abandoned Walmart in Brownsville, Texas, which a local television station reported is slated to serve as a taxpayer-funded shelter for an untold number of illegal aliens from across the Mexican border.

As Texas’ southernmost city – which is just a stone’s throw from Mexican border city of Matamoros – Brownsville is the latest location of a hotly contested border dispute, where a federally funded humanitarian group says the oversized vacated retail building will help teenaged youth who have arrived into the country illegally.

Why the Electronic Immigration System Is Broken

Along with Draining The Swamp in WDC – we need to DRAIN THE SWAMP of all the ILLEGALS whose mere presence costs each American in money, education, jobs, health care, – all of which should be charged back to the country they came from. The courts go after those who fail to pay SUPPORT for their children so WHY should some nation not have to pay for their ‘children’ who are illegally living in America??????? Think of the money that would come into American cities for all those ‘Sanctuary Cities’ who are now being ‘care givers’ for those foreign ‘children’. How many ILLEGALS and their Anchor babies are living in Chicago, Seattle, New York, etc., etc. The actual COST for each of them being sent to those foreign countries for America babysitting their ‘children’ might make them rethink the taking of those ‘children’ back to their home land, especially with the increase in the minimum wages now being paid to American workers. Think about that concept…

If Mexico think the border wall is bad he should think of having to PAY for all the Mexican ILLEGALS here in America drawing all those welfare type benefits and the pay for work they have drawn that belongs to LEGAL Americans. We need to get this idea to Pres. Trump

  • BILL THE FOREIGN NATIONS FOR OUR taking care of their ‘children’

A Preview Of Trump’s Seven Imminent Executive Orders

Courtesy of Axios, which quotes “one of the best-wired Republican lobbyists in town”, here is a preview of the initial round of Trump executive actions, some of which may hit as soon as Sunday afternoon: Continue reading

We the citizens of America are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people.

They have been magnificent. Thank you… Continue reading

What’s In Your Wallet?

All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects in their Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation. ~ John Adams

Money_gold_bars_HD_wallpaper.jpgAside from those who don’t have much of it, money is one of those things people take for granted. People open their wallets, or purses, and pull out a couple pieces of paper/clothe and expect that they will be able to exchange it for a certain amount of goods or services. But what is that stuff you carry around and use to make purchases? Money you say? I don’t think so.

The Sixth Edition of Bouvier’s Dictionary of Law defines money as: gold, silver, and some other less precious metals. What you hold in your wallets and purses is currency; and you should at least know a basic history of how it came to replace real money. Continue reading

California’s New Autograph Law

Is It A Threat to Booksellers?

A new law concerning the sale of autograph material in the state of California, which caused booksellers much consternation when it was passed in September, goes into effect on January 1. It applies not only to signed documents and memorabilia, but signed books as well. The demands it makes came across as draconian to some booksellers with signed material in their inventory. Sellers would have to supply a Certificate of Authenticity for autographs, with various detailed requirements including a description of the item, purchase price, an express warranty, size of edition if it is part of a limited edition, whether it was signed in the dealer’s presence and the name of a witness to the signing, and if purchased from a third party the name and address of the person from whom it was purchased. That last requirement added the issue of privacy, as individuals who sell books to a dealer or through an auction often, maybe usually, want to maintain their privacy, rather than have their name and address given to the new purchaser. That certificate of authenticity, revealing the previous owner’s name and address, could show up on eBay or Amazon at some future date. Continue reading

William Cooper Speaks From The Grave

“Top Secret FOIA Documents On Bill Cooper”

William (Bill) Cooper

An FOIA request filed by Kristan T. Harris of the American Intelligence Report resulted in the release of hundreds of documents related to former United States Naval Intelligence officer, author and radio broadcaster William (Bill) Cooper from Eagar, Arizona.

The unclassified documents paint Cooper’s controversial actions as “hosting a talk show by means of short-wave radio,” as well as “frequently condemning the federal government, Justice Department and the FBI for the ‘atrocities’ at Waco and Ruby Ridge”. The records punctuate the point that Bill was, “convinced there is a government sponsored socialist conspiracy to establish a ‘new world order’” multiple times throughout the FBI’s investigations.

County Ends ‘Sanctuary’ Policy Before Trump Inauguration

A New York sheriff has announced that it will be reversing its sanctuary policy just ahead of President-Elect Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Suffolk County Sheriff Vincent DeMarco announced that his county will no longer demand a judge’s order before detaining an illegal immigrant wanted by federal immigration officials, a major shift away from its previous sanctuary city policy, according to Newsday.

DeMarco said his policy reversal is not because of the incoming Trump administration’s expected legal fight against sanctuary city policies. Instead, he said the shift came after careful “legal analysis.” Continue reading

Business as Usual…

Big Business Warns Trump of Damage to Economy from Mass Deportations

Still grappling with Donald Trump’s surprise election, the nation’s business community has begun to pressure the president-elect to abandon campaign-trail pledges of mass deportation and other hard-line immigration policies that some large employers fear would hurt the economy.

The push, led by an advocacy group backed by New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg and media mogul Rupert Murdoch, is still in its infancy as the business world struggles to understand the tough-talking Trump’s true intentions on an issue that defined his outsider campaign. Some groups, such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, are holding off, doubtful that Trump will actually create a deportation force, as he suggested before his election, to expel those estimated 11 million immigrants in the country illegally.

But others are assembling teams of public officials and industry leaders on the ground in key states to encourage Trump to embrace a more forgiving immigration policy — in the name of economic development, if not human compassion. Continue reading

BUILD THE WALL: It Will Save Americans Trillions of Dollars

ladders_alamoEach year, illegal Mexican migrant workers send $24,000,000,000.00 (billion) back to Mexico in cash transfers. American employers paid them under the table and off the books with fraudulent identification. They never paid taxes, FICA or Social Security on that money. Their employers wrangled financial murder for the past 40 years.

While illegal alien workers transfer THAT much money annually, all legal and illegal immigrants account for $120,000,000,000.00 (billion) sent back to Mexico, South America, Africa and Asia. In other words, immigrants from all countries bleed America financially to death. Continue reading

Hate Didn’t Elect Donald Trump; People Did

photo_72491_landscape_650x433Over the summer, my little sister had a soccer tournament at Bloomsburg University, located in central Pennsylvania. The drive there was about three hours and many of the towns we drove through shocked me. The conditions of these towns were terrible. Houses were falling apart. Bars and restaurants were boarded up. Scrap metal was thrown across front lawns. White, plastic lawn chairs were out on the drooping front porches. There were no malls. No outlets. Most of these small towns did not have a Walmart, only a dollar store and a few run down thrift stores. In almost every town, there was an abandoned factory.

My father, who was driving the car, turned to me and pointed out a Trump sign stuck in a front yard, surrounded by weeds and dead grass. “This is Trump country, Tori,” He said. “These people are desperate, trapped for life in these small towns with no escape. These people are the ones voting for Trump.”
