Driessen: Blatant Blue State hypocrisy

From energy and spending, to climate and debate – silencing all dissenting voices is essential

~ Foreword ~
This wide-ranging discussion of economic, energy, climate and free speech – as practiced by Blue State governments and activist allies – explains why America is lucky it’s governed by President Trump, a Republican Congress, and mostly Red State governors and legislators, instead of by certain potential alternatives. Those alternative entities are presiding over tax and regulatory regimes, mountains of debt, intransigent public sector unions, and anti-nuclear, anti-fossil fuel energy policies that are anything but business friendly. Worse, they show no signs of abating.

These politicians are desperate for scapegoats – anything to deflect attention away from their failures and incompetence. ~ P.D.

The fly on the wall…

I have never seen so many uplifting comments and general conversation as I have over the past 24 hours. Yes my friends – we are speaking of THOSE 24 hours, where free speech once again roamed the land… Roamed the land my butt – it tore through this nation and around the world like another Tsunami.

I am talking about that never to be forgotten phrase, “Sh*t Hole” uttered by our illustrious and vociferous leader, Donald Trump. Continue reading

Dwyer: Hostile Sophistry

The claim that immigrants from all countries are good for America, as well as calling those who question it “racists”, are invalid and are consequences of hostile sophistry that the Liberal ideology has become. In the context of the fury brought by the latest (alleged) rant emanating from the  mouth of Trump, they are merely indications of wide-spread anti-white hate and the expressions of hostility towards white America.

Lewis: When Injustice Takes Hold

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Yeah, right – all it means to me is that I am a year older and still alive. Yep, 12 whole months older and maybe a bit wiser, or at least I like to think so.

Wisdom, however, seems to come at a much slower rate than age, especially for the last 40 years, as it seems my life has literally flown by. It is hard for me to believe that 54 years have passed since I graduated High School, or that kids I taught in one of the many indoctrination centers (public schools) are now in their upper 50s.

Ewart: America Is On Its Way To National Self-Destruction

Many states are in a tizzy because U. S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has announced that the United States is going to finally enforce the Controlled Substance Act (21 USC P. 811), (CSA) with regard to medical and recreational marijuana use ….. well sort of. Sessions left it up to the individual U. S. Attorney’s offices to prosecute, or not prosecute. That’s all America needs right now is another “sort of” law. After all, Hillary Clinton was only “sort of” guilty.

The cannabis smokers (mostly millennials) are up in arms for fear they might lose their marijuana pacifier high. The money-hungry states that have legalized recreational marijuana are apoplectic over the potential loss of the marijuana tax revenue and have threatened to sue the FEDS if the Controlled Substance Act is enforced.

What The Hell Happened To America?

A nation that is ignorant of its past, is a nation that is ripe for deception and manipulation. Therefore, it is not what happened, but rather what people believe happened which determines the present actions of a nation.” (From the DVD Warriors of Honor)

I know I’ve repeated this quote before, but I’m going to keep repeating it until people take it to heart. In 1822 James Madison wrote the following in a letter to W.T. Barry, “Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.” However, knowledge alone is not enough if it is not put to use. Is it enough to know that fire is hot if you do not utilize that knowledge by not putting your hand into a fire? As von Goethe said, “Knowing is not enough, we must apply.” Continue reading

January 11, 2018: No Steekin’ Amnesty

Listen Up Congress! No Deal on DACA!
Kelleigh Nelson: New research has shown that DACA itself is a jumbled mess of fraud and unaccountability. DACA illegal aliens cannot be legalized without sacrificing the “rule of law.” No more amnesty Mr. President! These Dreamers don’t come cheap to American taxpayers!. DACA does not give residency status, but temporarily protects them from deportation and allows them to work legally. The protection can be revoked at any time and some of these illegals have lost their DACA protections after being arrested for vicious crimes, yet many are still not deported… (Continue to full article)

‘No. No. No.’ — Donald Trump Says He Won’t Sign DACA Deal Without Wall Funding
Without the wall, it all doesn’t work … we need the wall, we have to have the wall for security purposes. Security is number one and so the answer is — have to have the wall.” Trump’s response seemed to contradict what he told members of Congress during the meeting: that he would sign a bill, even if it did not have everything that he wanted. I say, “No way Jose!“… (Continue to full article)

Schumer Says Trump Weakening on Amnesty, Threatens Shutdown

Republican House Bill Exchanges DACA Amnesty for Mandatory E-Verify, Legal Immigration Cuts
A Republican-led bill that would give amnesty to the nearly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is the first legislation on the issue that would make E-Verify mandatory for all U.S. employers, thus barring illegal aliens from the American workforce… (Continue to full article)

Laura Ingraham: ‘Extremely Concerned’ When Trump Getting ‘Lavish Praise’ from Jeb Bush for DACA Amnesty

Nearly 40 Percent of Sex Offenders in Oregon Prisons Are Illegal Aliens
The cost is steep to house and care for these prisoners. The criminal aliens each cost Oregon taxpayers $94.55 per day. That adds up to $91,977 per day for all of the criminal aliens in the state — $643,980 per week, more than $33 million per year. Those numbers do not include the costs incurred for legal services, interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance, nor do they include the devastating personal costs that victims of their crimes pay… (Continue to full article)

Trump—the Grownup in the Room on Immigration
Trump gets called crazy a lot. Or infantile. Or senile. More than a bit of projection may be operative in these allegations, however. Watching Tuesday’s televised discussion of immigration (video below) with Democratic and Republican congressional leaders, which the president opened to the media, it was hard not to come to an opposite conclusion… (Continue to full article)

The Art of the Immigration Deal
Recognizing the chasm that exists between the parties on immigration, Trump suggested a willingness to take on proposals in stages, focusing first on DACA and border security in what he called a “bill of love.” Despite his change in tone from mocking Jeb Bush for similar sentiments on the campaign trail, Trump has been pretty consistent on the substance of what he’s doing on the issue… (Continue to full article)

Government Gives Social Security Numbers to 541,000 Illegals
April 18, 2015: The American people have a right to know the full costs of President Obama’s unlawful executive amnesty. The White House unilaterally re-wrote the laws and taxpayers are just beginning to learn the full scope of these actions. Congress has a duty to conduct oversight and hold the Administration accountable for its actions and use of taxpayer dollars… (Continue to full article)

Krieger: I Don’t Want Your Leaders

In 2017, I wrote a lot about how dangerously centralized our political system in the U.S. has become, and how we need to decentralize governance in order to restore power, liberty and policy experimentation to the local level. This notion that a sprawling and culturally diverse nation of 325 million individuals should constantly battle to the death over the ring of political power in Washington D.C. so as to impose their view on the other half of the country which completely disagrees is patently ludicrous. States, and even metro areas themselves, should be making most of the important decisions that impact their citizens’ lives on a day to day basis. Continue reading

94 Percent of Confirmed Non-Citizens in Federal Custody Unlawfully Present
DHS counted some 58,766 known or suspected aliens in federal custody for the end of fiscal year 2017. Sixty-four percent of those individuals have been confirmed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement to be illegal aliens, while the remainder are still under investigation by ICE to determine their immigration status… (Continue to full article)

Stop Amnesty for Illegal Aliens and Send them Back Home!
President Trump has given Congress six months from the date of his Executive Action of September 5, 2017, which ends President Obama’s unconstitutional and illegal DACA program, to make an immigration bill he could live with. The deadline date makes it March 5, 2018 or in about two months time… (Continue to full article)

Justice Brennan’s Footnote Gave Us Anchor Babies
Aug. 8, 2010: Democrats act as if the right to run across the border when you’re 8 1/2 months pregnant, give birth in a U.S. hospital and then immediately start collecting welfare was exactly what our forebears had in mind, a sacred constitutional right, as old as the 14th Amendment itself. The louder liberals talk about some ancient constitutional right, the surer you should be that it was invented in the last few decades… (Continue to full article)

GOP Cowards Arrive at White House to Force Amnesty Surrender
Democrats and Republicans are at the White House today demanding a clean amnesty bill instead. No border security… no end to chain migration… no crackdown on illegal alien criminals and sanctuary cities. The GOP is so terrified of not giving the Democrats what they want that they’re actually lobbying the President to not only give up on building a border wall, but to also pass the same exact immigration plan that Hillary had proposed. This surrender must be stopped! (Continue to full article)

The Battle Over DACA Reaches a Fever Pitch
Over the next several weeks, chances are that one of two things will happen in Washington: Either a Republican-controlled Congress will pass, and a Republican president will sign, the most significant changes to U.S. immigration law and border security in more than a decade, or the federal government will shut down… (Continue to full article)

U.S. Border Crossings Have Become Authoritarian Testing Grounds
The U.S. government is effectively saying the fourth amendment doesn’t apply at the border, and CBP agents are increasingly compelling citizens to give the government their electronic devices to scroll through without a warrant or probable cause.

Not-So-Beautiful Dreamers: The Reality Behind the Media Airbrushing
When members of Congress battled over the budget, some threatened to block funding unless Congress provided amnesty to illegal alien Dreamers who benefited from President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), which President Trump announced he is ending. Conscientious members of Congress should not give in to this threat. Amnesty will encourage even more illegal immigration — just as the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act did… (Continue to full article)

How to Successfully Stop Illegal Immigration: Follow Israel’s Model

Mandatory E-Verify–Trump’s Most Popular Immigration Reform Left Out of DACA Amnesty Discussions
Trump’s most popular pro-American immigration reform, the system known as “E-Verify,” which would bar employers nationwide from hiring illegal aliens over Americans, has been entirely left out of all negotiations regarding the nearly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program… (Continue to full article)

Temporary Protected Status Reportedly Terminated for El Salvador

The Washington Post reports today that Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for nationals of El Salvador will not be renewed by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). According to the paper, Salvadoran nationals “will have until September 2019 to leave or seek other means to obtain lawful residency.”

Under section 244 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), the secretary of Homeland Security may grant TPS and employment authorization to nationals of designated countries. As long as TPS is in effect, those aliens who have been granted status may not be removed, except under very limited circumstances. Continue reading

DACA Is Not What the Democrats Say It Is. Here Are the Facts.

Some members of Congress are threatening to block government funding unless Congress provides amnesty to so-called Dreamers—the illegal aliens included in President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which President Donald Trump is ending.

Responsible members of Congress should not give in.

Such an effort would be fundamentally flawed and would only encourage even more illegal immigration—just as the 1986 amnesty in the Immigration Reform and Control Act did.

Democrats portray the DACA program as only benefitting those who were a few years old when they came to the U.S. illegally, leaving them unable to speak their native language and ignorant of their countries’ cultural norms. Therefore, the reasoning goes, it would be a hardship to return them to the countries where they were born. Continue reading

How SCOTUS perverted the “equal protection” clause of Sec. 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment

1. Harvard Professor Raoul Berger’s meticulously documented book, Government by Judiciary: The Transformation of the Fourteenth Amendment, proves by means of thousands of quotes from the Congressional Debates, that the purpose of Sec. 1 of the 14th Amendment was to extend citizenship to freed slaves and to protect them from southern Black Codes which denied them basic God given Rights. Continue reading

Babies Don’t Provide Anchors!

Section 1 of the 14th Amendment says:

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside…”

The purpose of this Section was to extend citizenship to freed slaves and to protect them from southern Black Codes which denied them basic God-given rights.

This Section does not provide that illegals who invade our Country and drop a baby here are automatically the parents of a US citizen. Continue reading

Fact-checking the claims about ‘anchor babies’ and whether illegal immigrants ‘drop and leave’

It sounds like a way for illegal immigrants to get a foothold in the United States: Pregnant women from Mexico and other countries can come to the U.S. to deliver their babies. Voila! Under the 14th Amendment, the babies are instant citizens!

That’s become a popular talking point for critics of illegal immigration, who have dubbed the children “anchor babies.” The implication often is that the baby U.S. citizens act as an anchor that that helps parents and other relatives obtain citizenship and other benefits. Continue reading

Dvorak: Key date looms in Iran’s counter-revolutionary protests!

Millions of young people continue to protest against the repressive hardline regime in Iran. At least 21 demonstrators have been killed, according to media reports. As 2018 begins, the question is ‘can the Islamic government to crush the latest democracy movement?’ It’s been eight years since the Obama administration turned away from Iran’s green movement and made a deal with the Ayatollah Khomeini hardliners.

Fire! Fire!

… in the hole!

At just 1:30 this afternoon today I received a notification from various publications, one of which which I immediately forwarded to Granny. it stated, “A fire broke out Wednesday at property owned by Bill and Hillary Clinton in Chappaqua, N.Y..” My response to Granny was, “Yeah – sure it did. What kind of records and computers are being destroyed,” to which she stated, “As many as they were able to hide in there.”

In response to the following posted column, at 6:48 this evening, the following came from Granny; “Is Anyone surprised? Hillary knows her TIME is coming to an end so she is getting rid of everything she can – but there are copies in other places that WILL be uncovered at some point. She didn’t anticipate the Weiner emails – more will surface. The TRAIL of Hillary bodies is still traveling. Her day of judgement is one she won’t be able to avoid – God knows ALL she has done and she WILL pay the price for all her evil deeds in life.”

SARTRE: The Millennial Utopian Society

In order to understand the millennial phenomena that has influenced the beginning years of the 21st century, acknowledgement that the under thirty sect is quite different from their parents’ generation is crucial. Back some fifty plus years the popular saying coined by Jack Weinberg was “Don’t trust anyone over 30”. The crowning irony is that this mindset was expressed during the “Free Speech Movement at UC Berkeley which was a struggle by students over the right to engage in political speech on campus, which helped to catalyze broader political activism on campuses around the country over student rights, civil rights and the Vietnam War”.
