Being Christian Doesn’t Mean Being for Open Borders. ‘It’s not a biblical command for the country to let everyone in who wants to be here’

As the discussion over refugees being detained and immigrants being rejected continues to make headlines and evoke spirited debate, what is the responsibility of Christians when it comes to immigration and refugee programs?

Matthew 25: 35 is often quoted as a defense for immigration — legal or otherwise — among Christian groups. Jesus says, “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.”

However, is that the final answer when it comes to a decision that will potentially jeopardize the security and resources of our country? Must Christians give up their own well-being as an action of faith? Is the sanctuary of others, regardless of their motivation or origin, more important than our own safety?

Donald Trump signed an executive order on Friday, Jan. 27, that temporarily suspends immigration from certain countries: Syria, Iraq, Somalia, Iran, Sudan, Libya, and Yemen. The order also temporarily pauses the admission of refugees into the United States until vetting processes have been bolstered to meet a stricter standard. Also, it is a temporary period of probation, not a permanent one.

/* */

First of all, the facts must be clearly evaluated and not misrepresented. Media reported that airports were filled this weekend with travelers who were stranded as they tried to return to the United States. Celebrities attempted to stir emotions with moving speeches and claims of persecution. It is certainly accurate that lives were interrupted with the abrupt executive order. It is also imperative to understand that any definitive action will inevitably offer disadvantage to some while providing an advantage to others. This isn’t necessarily fair — but neither is life. It is what is believed to be the next step taken to protect our country and our citizens.

It is easy to pick and choose verses or teaching from Scripture to make an argument. But a single verse does not provide an accurate response for all situations. The truth is that we as Christians are called to love one another, even our enemies. We are told to turn the other cheek, walk the extra mile, show everyone we encounter the love of Jesus by how we treat them.

Yet we are also called to be good stewards of what God has blessed us with — we have a responsibility to honor God with what He has bestowed upon us. There is no need for selfishness, but it is necessary to be diligent in protecting what He has bestowed upon us. This includes not only our own property, but our families, our infrastructure, our finances. amen

We are instructed to obey authority, believing that God has placed individuals in the positions they retain. God is the one who first introduced the idea of law and order to mankind when He provided the Ten Commandments. This was an understanding of obedience and submission. God does not desire chaos, disorder, or anarchy. Instead, He provided an example of the need for structure, policies, and law when it comes to the creation and maintenance of a country.

“It’s not a biblical command for the country to let everyone in who wants to come, that’s not a Bible issue,” Franklin Graham, the evangelist, told The Huffington Post. “We want to love people, we want to be kind to people, we want to be considerate, but … there are laws that relate to immigration and I think we should follow those laws. Because of the dangers we see today in this world, we need to be very careful.”picture7

Christians are not called to be naive. We must observe boundaries in order to maintain the land we have been blessed to possess in America. We need to be careful to evaluate those who come into our country but do not desire to assimilate to our way of life. At the same time, we share the desire to help the helpless and aid those in danger, utilizing our resources. Just as God is a balance of both love and justice — so our country must be governed with law and mercy.amen

McConnell: If GOP unites, we will win

McConnell: If GOP unites, we will win / © Greg Nash

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has a clear and simple message for his party: Success depends on unity.

In an interview with The Hill, the Senate majority leader said he has told his GOP colleagues not to expect any help from Democrats on an array of legislative priorities.

ADVERTISEMENT

In contrast to past years, when McConnell had to face down rebellions from conservative colleagues — most notably Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) — the entire Senate GOP conference appears to be on the same page. How long that lasts remains uncertain, however.

“The only way you can achieve success in an environment like now, where there’s not much bipartisanship, is for us to have our act together and to work out our differences among ourselves,” McConnell said Friday.amen

During former President Obama’s administration, McConnell said he had to contend with “individuals” in the Senate and House who “just really enjoy the publicity associated with doing something the vast majority of Republicans didn’t agree with, and it was a great headline producer.”no-more-rinos-2

After a highly unusual and charged election year, McConnell is looking forward to making new laws in 2017. Against the odds, McConnell preserved his GOP majority in November and now has a willing partner in the White House. The relationship between President Trump and McConnell was tenuous at best throughout 2016. But times have changed. McConnell, who refused to answer questions about Trump in the fall, last week compared him to President Andrew Jackson, the nation’s first populist commander in chief.

Ten Senate Democrats are running for reelection in 2018 in states that Trump won last year. McConnell is expecting that Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer(D-N.Y.) will pull out all the stops to keep them from defecting on big votes.

“We’re not anticipating much Democratic cooperation here,” he said with a laugh.

He says most Democrats are “not interested” in working with the GOP on legislation to repeal and replace parts of ObamaCare and to overhaul the tax code. As a result, Republicans are looking to pass those bills on party-line votes under a special budgetary process that protects them from filibusters. 

“When you’re taking that path, you better have your people all lined up, because if you can’t get your own guys together, particularly in the Senate, you can’t get where you want to go,” he said.

Republicans have control of the White House and both chambers of Congress for the first time in a decade, and they know they have a limited amount of time to enact major legislative initiatives such as comprehensive tax reform, which was last accomplished in 1986. At that time, Democrats and Republicans worked together to revamp the tax code. McConnell, who was a backbencher back then, said such a bipartisan endeavor is just not possible now — it’s “a different era.”

Despite the high stakes and the pressure, McConnell seemed comfortable and at ease throughout The Hill’s interview. He stayed on message and calmly dodged questions about policies Republicans have not yet decided on.

McConnell in 2015 became majority leader, his dream job ever since he worked as a junior aide to late Sen. Marlow Cook (R-Ky.).

The Senate electoral map looks quite good for Republicans, who have only eight seats up for reelection in 2018, while Democrats will have to defend 25.

But McConnell, 74, says anything can happen, chuckling over the brimming confidence of Democratic colleagues last year who thought they were a lock to win back the upper chamber. Before the election, media outlets were publishing profiles of Schumer, assuming he would be the next Senate majority leader.

“I sat here and observed on a daily basis my soon-to-be counterpart, Sen. Schumer, giving interviews on his agenda, measuring the curtains,” he recalled with a wry smile.

McConnell, who has a reputation as one of the shrewdest tacticians on Capitol Hill but sometimes draws criticism even from GOP colleagues for being too focused on politics, says he’s now entirely focused on governing.

“Rather than becoming consumed about what might happen in 2018, we need to try to succeed,” he said.

McConnell, an institutionalist who reveres the Senate, said Republicans don’t work for Trump. He pointedly noted that the Senate decides its own rules when asked about pressure from the White House to strip senators of the power to filibuster Supreme Court nominees.

Over the years, conservative groups have taken shots at McConnell on a variety of issues. But they have no complaints about his decision to not vote on Merrick Garland, Obama’s 2016 Supreme Court nominee. Now, late Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat will be filled with a conservative. Trump is scheduled to announce his pick on Tuesday (UPDATE: Tonight).

Trump and McConnell are both dealmakers, but they don’t see eye-to-eye on trade, Russian sanctions and other matters. What’s more important than their differences, McConnell said, is their shared desire to cut tax rates, simplify the tax code and reverse what he calls the “rampage” of overregulation under Obama. He says regulatory excess is the chief culprit responsible for the nation’s tepid economic recovery and scoffs at the Democratic narrative that frames Obama as a savior who turned around a national economy severely damaged by former President George W. Bush’s mismanagement.

“Obama didn’t have a single year of 3 percent growth, and the statute of limitations on blaming Bush ran out a long time ago,” he said.

Unlike Trump, McConnell rarely talks publicly about the stock market. But it has gone up because of Trump’s victory, McConnell said.

“Everybody I know who watches the market thinks the reason it has been booming is the expectation of regulatory relief and tax reform,” he said.

As partisan as the atmosphere is in Washington, McConnell knows that he’ll still need centrist Democrats to join him for the 115th Congress to be a success. He says that Republicans cannot entirely replace ObamaCare under reconciliation — the special budget process that empowers the majority party to enact legislation with only 51 votes. Some healthcare reforms, such as allowing companies to sell insurance across state lines or other policy changes that have a negligible budgetary impact must be adopted with 60 votes. That means winning over centrists such as Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), who are up for reelection next year.

“[Red-state Democrats] will be necessary,” he concedes.

After spending the past two years playing defense, when Republicans had to defend 24 Senate seats in the 2016 election cycle, McConnell — an avid sports fan — is eager to play offense.

“I’m assuming that each of them will be calculating whether it’s to their advantage to be cooperative or not,” he said of the 10 Democrats up for reelection in pro-Trump states.

“I’m hoping that frequently they will conclude that it’s actually good for them to be helpful to us,” he said.

Kochs Gear Up To Back Trump In Supreme Court Battle

URL of the original posting site: http://dailycaller.com/2017/01/30/kochs-gear-up-to-back-trump-in-supreme-court-battle/#ixzz4XNtfamIO

PALM SPRINGS, CALIF. — Charles Koch’s Seminar Network is prepared to launch digital ads and knock on doors in blue-leaning Trump-voting states in support of President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, a number of Koch network lieutenants told reporters Sunday evening. “Everything is on the table,” Americans for Prosperity chief government affairs officer Brent Gardner said.

Left-leaning states won by Trump will be a focus, particularly those with senators who are up for re-election in 2018. “A number of those folks are going to be necessary to the [60-vote] threshold required for confirmation,” Gardner said. Despite former President Barack Obama’s inability to gain traction for his Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, the Koch representatives are confident the issue is important to activists and voters.

The plan is new so details are not concrete, but senators Americans for Prosperity (AFP) will target will depend on how senators vote, they said. As for vulnerability, “November broadened the map,” AFP Chief Operating Officer Sean Langsing said, listing Wisconsin, Montana, Michigan and New Hampshire as examples of states more in play for libertarian politics.

Colorado Democratic Sen. Michael Bennett, who won re-election in 2016, is another potential target for pressure, despite not being up for six years. Bennett has said that he would oppose the nomination of 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch, a top contender for the nomination, AFP Director of Policy Akash Chougule said.

Held twice a year, the weekend meeting is a gathering place for the Seminar Network, a large group of wealthy donors interested in libertarian and conservative causes. The weekend’s seminar, held in the temperate desert outside of Los Angeles, was the first since Trump’s election and inauguration.

The network spent hundreds of millions on advertising and advocacy for limited-government politicians — namely, Republicans — running for the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives, but notably stayed out of the presidential primaries and race. (RELATED: As Trump Presidency Dawns, Kochs Plan To Bring Hundreds Of Millions To Bear On Next Two Years)

And after scaling back early projections on their spending during the 2015-2016 cycle, the Seminar Network intends to ramp up spending on work to build grassroots networks and impact U.S. policy. That spending is expected to rise from the $250 million in the 2015-2016 cycle, to an estimated $300-400 million in the 2017-2018 cycle. (RELATED: Kochs Come Out Against Trump Travel Ban)

Despite a socially liberal trend in the donor network, Freedom Partners Vice President of Policy Andy Koenig said the they support a judge in the mold of the late Judge Antonin Scalia, a socially conservative strict constitutional constructionist whose seat has remained empty since he died unexpectedly in 2016.

At a Saturday night dinner kicking off the two-day seminar, Republican Sen. Mike Lee told gathered donors that Trump’s eventual nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court is going to be confirmed by the Senate. (RELATED: Mike Lee Is Certain The Senate Will Confirm Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee)

“It’s a fantastic list,” he said of the names floated as in the running for Trump’s nomination. “I’m very confident that whoever the president nominates is going to get confirmed…. I can tell you this: At the end of the day, any one of the people that President Trump is looking at will be confirmed by the Senate — we will make sure of that.”

Sen. James Lankford, who spoke alongside Lee, included confirming a Supreme Court justice among actions the Senate can take without 60 votes, implying that Republicans would use “the nuclear option” to pass their choice and would not need outside support. Seminar Network representatives declined to weigh in on the pros or cons of this strategy.

“We don’t want someone who is going to be legislating from the bench,” Seminar Network James Davis said. “We want someone who cares about the Bill of Rights.”

The Seminar Network is co-chaired by Charles Koch Institute President Brian Hooks and Mark Holden, general counsel for Koch Industries. Called “A Time to Lead,” the meeting was hosted at the Renaissance Indian Wells Resort and Spa, and is focused on local, grassroots initiatives Americans can take in what Hooks called “the key institutions of society”– “education, community, business and government.” (RELATED: Charles Koch Calls For Action: ‘We Might Not Have An Opportunity Again Like We Have Today’)

There are around 550 individuals included in the “principals” network meeting, which requires at least $100,000 donation to the network. In addition to these invited people, there were approximately 150 staff and speakers, Seminar Network spokesman James David told reporters. There was also a larger press presence than any previous conference has allowed.

Other elected officials in attendance included Republican Sens. Ben Sasse, Pat Toomey and David Perdue, as well as Reps. Jason Chaffetz and Marsha Blackburn. All elected officials attending the seminar were Republicans.

Dem Congresswoman Forced To Face Her Own Voting History After Calling Trump’s Travel Ban ‘Horrifying’


waving flagAuthored by Phillip Stucky | 10:16 PM |  01/30/2017

URL of the original posting site: http://dailycaller.com/2017/01/30/dem-congresswoman-forced-to-face-her-own-voting-history-after-calling-trumps-travel-ban-horrifying/

Democratic Rep. Elizabeth Esty from Connecticut launched a tweetstorm Monday afternoon against President Donald Trump’s travel ban, but quickly backtracked after followers confronted her on her visa-related voting history. Esty co-sponsored H.B. 158 on Dec. 3 2015, a bi-partisan bill that enabled the executive branch led by the the Department of Homeland Security to severely limit or curtail visas from countries like Iran and Iraq.

Trump’s list of seven countries came primarily from the text of H.B. 158, but the executive order allows Trump to place a travel ban from any resident of those countries, excluding those with current green cards or legal residents of the United States.

Esty’s followers on Twitter were quick to remind the congresswoman about her voting history, going so far as to call her a “liar.”

esty03Esty responded quickly, citing a Vox story that didn’t even mention the bill in question.

esty04Esty’s press office told The Daily Caller News Foundation the congresswoman didn’t mean to assert that she didn’t co-sponsor the bill, but rather the bill didn’t do the same thing as Trump’s executive order. The office added that Trump’s order is unique because it constitutes a blanket ban, while the bill that she co-sponsored only sought to reduce the number of visas issued from the same seven countries.more-leftist-propaganda

Esty’s co-sponsored Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015 prevented members of 38 countries to enter the U.S. for less than 90 days. The law prevented anyone from obtaining a visa into the country if they had visited any of the countries on the list within the last five years.

The American Civil Liberties Union opposed the measure before it was signed into law.

Other followers on Twitter weren’t having any of her response. One user posted a screenshot of the bill, along with a picture of her name on the co-sponsor page.

TownHall reported that President Barack Obama actually restricted travel based on country of origin several times — the first of which occurred because Obama continued a rule under former President George W. Bush that heavily restricted travel from 36 nations, primarily in the Middle East. Obama also signed an executive order that severely limited intake of refugees from Iraq, stalling any further influx for six months.strategy

Trump signs executive order to drastically cut federal regs


waving flagPublished January 30, 2017 | FoxNews.com

URL of the original posting site: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/01/30/trump-signs-executive-order-to-drastically-cut-federal-regs.html

President Trump signed an executive order on Monday to drastically reduce the regulatory burden on U.S. businesses, requiring federal agencies to effectively eliminate at least two regulations for each new one issued.

“We have to knock out a regulation for every two, but it goes far beyond that. This is a big one,” said Trump, in signing the order that makes good on his “one in-two out” campaign promise.

Trump has signed more than a dozen executive orders in his first 11 days in office.  

The order Monday specifically states that prior regulations must be “identified for elimination” when a new rule is put forward. However, the 900-word order makes clear that the costs associated with new regulations each year cannot go up. So they would have to be offset by eliminating “costs associated with at least two prior regulations.” 

For fiscal 2017, Trump told agency heads that the total cost of new regulations finalized this year “shall be no greater than zero” unless otherwise directed. 

“It is essential to manage the costs associated with the governmental imposition of private expenditures required to comply with federal regulations,” the document also states. 

“We will begin efforts to reduce federal regulations. We’ll be reducing them big time,” Trump said in concluding a White House meeting with small business owners before signing the order.

The military, national security and foreign affairs are exempt from the order, which puts the Office of Management and Budget in charge of the changes. Agencies must present OMB with new regulations and show what is slated for elimination. However, the order offers some flexibility:  allowing agencies to determine the cuts, maintaining White House input and giving the OMB director authority to make emergency exceptions. 

An administration official told Fox News that a recently issued White House memo on temporary regulation freezes remains in place and that the executive order establishes the process going forward. picture2

Commentary: The People Have Spoken. Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee Deserves a Vote.


waving flagCommentary by Sen. Mitch McConnell Portrait of Sen. Mitch McConnell / / January 30, 2017

Mitch McConnell on President Trump’s pending Supreme Court nominee: “I consistently maintained that the next president would fill this vacancy. I held to that view even when nearly everyone thought the president would be Hillary Clinton.” (Photo: Olivier Douliery/UPI/Newscom)

Justice Antonin Scalia was a towering figure on the Supreme Court. His unfortunate passing last year was not only a great loss to our country, but it came, as we all know, as our country was already in the midst of a contentious presidential election process.

In keeping with the Biden Rule, which states that “ … action on a Supreme Court nomination must be put off until after the election campaign is over, ” I have stood firm on the principle that the American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court justice. I consistently maintained that the next president would fill this vacancy. I held to that view even when nearly everyone thought the president would be Hillary Clinton. 

Our friends on the left may lack the same consistency on this topic—the principle we’ve followed, after all, is not only known as the Biden Rule but also the Schumer Standard—but there is one thing from which we can expect the left not to waver: trying to paint whomever is actually nominated in apocalyptic terms.

Doesn’t matter who this Republican president nominates. Doesn’t matter who any Republican president nominates—really. The left has been rolling out the same, tired playbook for decades.

  • When the Republican president was George H.W. Bush, groups on the left said the record of his first Supreme Court nominee was ”disturbing” and ”very troubling” and that his opinions ”threaten to undo the advances made by women, minorities, dissenters, and other disadvantaged groups.” That’s what the left said about Bush’s first nominee, David Souter.
  • When the Republican president was Ronald Reagan, groups on the left also said that the record of one of his nominees was ”troubling.” They even called him a ”sexist” and said he ”would be a disaster for women” if confirmed. The nominee in question? Anthony Kennedy.
  • And when the Republican president was Gerald Ford, the left said that they had “grave concern” with his Supreme Court nominee and that the record of this nominee “revealed an extraordinary lack of sensitivity to the problems women face … ” In fact, they said he was “disqualified from being a member of the Supreme Court of the United States because of his consistent opposition to women’s rights … ” The nominee they were referring to? John Paul Stevens.picture1

I’m serious—that’s what they said about Stevens. And Souter. And Kennedy.

We can expect to hear a lot of end times rhetoric from the left again today. In fact, we already have. The same groups on the left who always seem to say the sky is falling when a Republican president puts forward a Supreme Court nominee are saying it’s falling again. Only this time, they’re saying it before we even have a nominee.

President Donald Trump has a list of about 20 Americans who he is considering nominating to the Supreme Court. These men and women have different professional backgrounds and different life experiences. Some have distinguished themselves in state courts, others have distinguished themselves in federal court. Some are appellate court judges, others are trial court judges. Some passed the Senate without a single negative vote against their nomination. Others passed the Senate without requiring a roll call vote at all on their nomination.

The bipartisan support, the years of judicial experience, the impressive credentials—none of these appear to matter to some on the left. They say things like, “We are prepared to oppose every name on the list.” That’s right, Mr. President. Every single name on the list.

Even more troubling, some Senate Democrats are saying the same thing. My friend from New York said it was hard for him “to imagine a nominee” from Trump whom Senate Democrats “could support.” We don’t even have one yet.democrats-not-republicans

I hope we can all skip past that and get down to our serious work. The election is now behind us. The president has been working to make his decision on a nominee, and we expect him to announce that decision tomorrow (UPDATE: Tonight).

The Senate should respect the result of the election and treat this newly elected president’s nominee in the same way the nominees of other newly elected presidents have been treated—and that is with careful consideration followed by an up-or-down vote.

We had two nominations in the first term of President Bill Clinton. Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer both got up-or-down votes. There was no filibuster. We had two nominations in the first term of President Barack Obama: Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. No filibuster. First-term presidents have received up-or-down votes.republicans-not-democrats

We have every right to expect the same courtesy from today’s minority when we receive this nomination.amen

FLASHBACK: Democrats Tried To Block Thousands Of Vietnam War Refugees, Including Orphans


waving flagAuthored by Photo of Richard Pollock Richard Pollock | Reporter | 9:21 PM 01/29/2017

URL of the original posting site: http://dailycaller.com/2017/01/29/flashback-when-liberal-democrats-opposed-refugees-and-even-orphans/#ixzz4XI4m1LFf

The group, led by California’s Gov. Jerry Brown, included such liberal luminaries as Delaware’s Democratic Sen. Joe Biden, former presidential “peace candidate” George McGovern, and New York Congresswoman Elizabeth Holtzman.

The Los Angeles Times reported Brown even attempted to prevent planes carrying Vietnamese refugees from landing at Travis Air Force Base outside San Francisco. About 500 people were arriving each day and eventually 131,000 arrived in the United States between 1975 and 1977. These people arrived despite protests from liberal Democrats. In 2015, the Los Angeles Times recounted Brown’s ugly attitude, reporting, “Brown has his own checkered history of demagoguery about refugees.”

Back in 1975, millions of South Vietnamese who worked for or supported the U.S. found themselves trapped behind the lines when the communists took over the country. Vietnamese emigre Tung Vu, writing in Northwest Asian Weekly, recalled the hardships the Vietnamese faced in 1975 as they tried to escape the communists.

“After the fall of Saigon, many Vietnamese chose to leave by any means possible, often in small boats. Those who managed to escape pirates, typhoons, and starvation sought safety and a new life in refugee camps,” Tung wrote.

Ironically, Republicans led by former President Gerald Ford were the political figures who fought for the refugees to enter the United States.republicans-not-democrats

Julia Taft, who in 1975 headed up Ford’s Inter-agency Task Force on Indochinese refugee resettlement, told author Larry Engelmann in his book, “Tears Before the Rain: An Oral History of the Fall of South Vietnam,” “The new governor of California, Jerry Brown, was very concerned about refugees settling in his state.”

National Public Radio host Debbie Elliott retraced Brown’s refusal to accept any refugees in a January 2007 interview with Taft. According to a transcript, which was aired on its flagship program, “All Things Considered,” Taft said, “our biggest problem came from California due to Brown.” She called his rejection of Vietnamese refugees “a moral blow.”democrats-not-republicans

“I remember at the time we had thousands and thousands of requests from military families in San Diego, for instance, who had worked in Vietnam, who knew some of these people,” she told NPR.

Taft recalled another dark reason the liberals opposed the refugees: “They said they had too many Hispanics, too many people on welfare, they didn’t want these people.”democrats-not-republicans

“They didn’t want any of these refugees, because they had also unemployment,” she told NPR. “They had already a large number of foreign-born people there. They had – they said they had too many Hispanics, too many people on welfare, they didn’t want these people.”democrats-not-republicans

Brown echoed his isolationist theme throughout his first term. As recounted by author Larry Clinton Thompson in his book, “Refugee Workers in the Indochina Exodus,” Brown said, “We can’t be looking 5,000 miles away and at the same time neglecting people who live here.” At the same time as Brown was fighting Washington, Democrats waged an anti-refugee campaign inside the nation’s capital.democrats-not-republicans

Ford appealed to Congress to quickly help the refugees, who included thousands of Cambodians fleeing a genocidal campaign perpetrated by the communist Cambodian Pol Pot regime. But in Washington, Ford found himself thwarted by many high-profile Democrats.democrats-not-republicans

A review of the congressional debate at the time and recounted by CQ Almanac shows New York’s Elizabeth Holtzman – who was one of the House’s most visible liberal congresswomen — opposed helping the refugees. Like Brown, she tried to pit her constituents against the refugees. She said, according to CQ Almanac, “some of her constituents felt that the same assistance and compassion was not being shown to the elderly, unemployed and poor in this country.”REALLY

Rep. Donald Riegle, a liberal representative from Michigan who later would serve as its senator, offered an amendment that would have barred funds for the refugees unless similar assistance was given to Americans. The amendment was rejected by the House, 346 to 71, according to the Almanac.democrats-not-republicans

Another House Democrat even tried to slow down the airlift of Vietnamese orphans. The Almanac reported that Rep. Joshua Eilberg, the Democratic chairman of the House Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship and International Law, accused the Ford administration of having acted “with unnecessary haste” in the evacuation of the orphans.democrats-not-republicans

The emergency rescue mission, called “Operation Babylift,” was activated by the United States, Australia, France and Canada after urgent appeals were issued by humanitarian relief organizations in Vietnam. The evacuation faced tragedy on its maiden flight when a C-5A cargo plane carrying the orphans crashed after takeoff, killing 78 children along with 35 U.S. government workers and diplomats.

The Library of Congress also reported liberal congressmen tried to stall the refugee legislation, indicating “they would rather wait for the administration to formulate a plan for the care and evacuation of refugees before approving the humanitarian aid.”democrats-not-republicans

Then-Sen. Joe Biden tried to slow down the refugee bill in the Senate, complaining that he needed more details about the quickly unfolding refugee problem before he would support it. He said the White House “had not informed Congress adequately about the number of refugees,” according to the Library of Congress history of the legislation.

Quang X. Pham, who was born in Saigon and later served as a Marine pilot in the Persian Gulf War, later criticized Biden in an op-ed published by the Washington Post on December 30, 2006. Quang wrote, Biden “charged that the [Ford] Administration had not informed Congress adequately about the number of refugees — as if anyone actually knew during the chaotic evacuation.”

Peace candidate Sen. George McGovern, who had lost in a landslide to former President Richard Nixon in the 1972 presidential election, appeared the most heartless senator when he introduced a bill to assist those who wished to return to South Vietnam.democrats-not-republicans

McGovern said he thought 90 percent of the Vietnamese arrivals “would be better off going back to their own land,” according to the Library of Congress. His amendment died in a House-Senate conference.

In the end, most of the Democrat complaints appeared to center on the fact that the refugees were escaping communism, which many liberals did not find that objectionable.

“One of the justifications that Ford gave was related to communism. He said these people are all fleeing communism, which was the same criteria that had been used for the Cubans, the Hungarians, other refugee groups that had been processed in the past,” Taft explained

Turning Trump’s Wall Rhetoric into Reality


waving flagAuthored by Brendan Kirby | Updated 30 Jan 2017 at 8:56 AM

border-fence

As President Donald Trump begins the work of transforming his “Build That Wall” campaign chant into reality, he won’t be facing a blank canvas. The United States has a hodgepodge of barriers along the Mexican border totaling some 650 miles. They include pedestrian fencing, vehicle barriers, and double-layered steel fencing with enough space for border agents in vehicles to patrol.

On the campaign trail, Trump frequently spoke of a “big, beautiful wall,” but experts contend that the final product likely will not be one solid wall stretching hundreds of miles. Trump himself said in a “60 Minutes” interview shortly after the election that fencing would be appropriate in certain areas.

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, said officials already have started the process of determining which barriers need to be strengthened, which need to be replaced, and where new construction on currently virgin territory needs to take place.

“We’re not reinventing the wheel,” he said. “We already have fencing. We’ve been through this before.”

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, said barriers are not feasible or necessary in remote areas, mountainous regions, and parts of the border where water separates the countries.

“It’s not going to be a coast-to-coast wall or fencing, even,” she said.

/* */
The San Diego Experience
In planning the massive construction project, the experience in San Diego might prove instructive. At one time, the 66-mile section of the border extending east from the Pacific Ocean was the most popular entry point for illegal immigrants from Mexico. Migrants freely crossed from a region of more than 2 million people in Tijuana, Tecate, and surrounding areas.

In 1993, America completed the first 14 miles of fencing. The 10-foot-high fence was made from surplus Army steel landing mat used to make landing strips during the Vietnam War. Later, the United States added a secondary fence behind the first barrier. The two-piece barrier angles toward the south to make it more difficult to scale.

The results were stunning. In fiscal year 1992, border patrol agents had apprehended 202,173 people at the border agency’s Imperial Beach Station in San Diego and 158,952 at the Chula Vista Station about 12 miles east. A Congressional Research Service report indicates that by fiscal year 2004, apprehensions dropped to 9,122 at Imperial Beach and 9,923 in Chula Vista. Those were declines of 95 percent and 94 percent, respectively. In the rest of the San Diego Sector, apprehensions dropped from 204,456 to 119,293 over that time period.

Those regions also experienced a marked drop in crime, while crime declines in the more rural sections of the border lagged behind the national average, according to the congressional report.

“I’ve seen how effective [fencing] is in California and west Texas,” Vaughan said.

borderYet for all of its success in blocking illegal immigrants from entering San Diego, there is ample evidence that the fencing simply pushed migrants to more vulnerable sections of the border. The total number of apprehensions along the southwest border in fiscal year 2004 was about 1.2 million, nearly identical to the figure in fiscal year 1992.

During that time, the U.S. Border Patrol’s busiest stations switched from San Diego to Tucson and Yuma in Arizona. Another consequence of shutting down border crossings in urban areas is that illegal immigration across the desert became more dangerous. Migrant deaths shot up from an average of 200 a year in the early 1990s to 472 in 2005.

Experts: Border Control Must Be Comprehensive
To experts, the lesson is clear: Immigration enforcement has to be comprehensive. Physical barriers are of limited utility without enough agents to police the border and detention space to hold those apprehended. Trump’s plan also accounts for those things.

“What works in Brownsville isn’t necessarily going to work in San Diego,” said Chris Cabrera, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council. “Whatever we have, you’re going to need technology to with it, as well … It can’t stand alone. You need to back it up. You need manpower.”illegalalienvoters-300x300

Cabrera said physical barriers tend to work best in urban areas. That is why the San Diego fencing was so effective, he added.

“It was more of a funnel system,” he said. “We wanted to push people from more populated areas to more rural areas where it’s easier to apprehend them.”

Over the rest of the nearly 2,000-mile border, the United States has a variety of barriers. Some sections have permanent vehicle barriers — steel posts or bollards driven five feet into the ground and encased on concrete. They are designed to stop migrants from driving across the border in rural areas.

Other spots have temporary barriers — welded metal, like railroad track, telephone polls, or piping that can be moved by forklift.

In an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News Channel last week, Trump derided the “little toy walls” that currently exist. Judd, president of the border patrol union, agreed upgrades are need, although he added that he does not know which barriers can be improved and which ones should simply be bulldozed and replaced completely.

Trump Begins Immigration Enforcement OverhaulExecutive actions target sanctuary cities, border wall, and ‘catch and release’ policies

Cabrera said the most effective strategy in some spots is “virtual offenses” that rely on sensors to track border crossers.

“There’s particularly going to be a focus on replacing fencing that is absolutely in atrocious condition,” Judd said.

Trump has indicated a desire to move fast, beginning construction in a matter of months. Judd and Cabrera agreed that is a doable goal.

“Government is only as slow as we let it,” Cabrera said. “He [is] from a business background, which is different from a government background.”bred

Bill Clinton Mexico Border Barriers And George W. Bush Secure Fence Act, Supported By Obama And Hillary, Predate Trump’s Wall By Decades


waving flagAuthored by  | January 30, 2017

URL of the original posting site: http://www.inquisitr.com/3926780/bill-clinton-mexico-border-barriers-and-george-w-bush-secure-fence-act-supported-by-obama-and-hillary-predate-trumps-wall-by-decades/

Donald Trump is far from the first president to advocate a physical barrier with Mexico. Both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, with the Border Fence Act, undertook such projects during their respective presidencies, and both won the support of many key Democrats — including Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. As of now, nearly 700 miles of such fencing already exist along the U.S. border with Mexico.

 While several local-level attempts to strengthen borders have taken place since the early 1900s, the federal government first took charge of the issue in 1993 with Bill at the helm. Clinton signed off on Operation Safeguard in Arizona and Operation Hold the Line in Texas, both of which allocated federal funding for fences and other means of tightened security along the border. The following year, Operation Gatekeeper was also signed into law, constructing a similar structure where San Diego meets Mexico. In a 2001 article from the International Socialist Review, the publication condemned the former president for “creating a deadly situation for migrant workers,” citing a quote from 1996 where he spoke positively of the aggressive action.words-of-a-leftist-propagandist

“Since 1992, we have increased our Border Control by over 35 percent; deployed underground sensors, infrared night scopes, and encrypted radios; built miles of new fences; and installed massive amounts of new lighting.”

 What Bill started continued under his successor. During the George W. years, the Bush-era Secure Fence Act of 2006 passed 80-19 in the Senate, counting the support of both Obama and Hillary Clinton. In the future president’s speech explaining his vote, Obama said that “better fences and better security along our borders” would “help stem some of the tide of illegal immigration in this country,” but he also criticized the measure as an “election-year, political solution to a real policy challenge” that left a solution “unfinished at best.”

“In addition to greater border security, we also need greater sanctions on employers who hire illegally in this country… to make it easier for those employers to identify who is eligible to work… and we need a plan to deal with the 12 million undocumented immigrants who are already here, many of whom have woven themselves into the fabric of our society.”

After approval, the George W. Bush fence with Mexico continued under the presidency of Barack Obama. In 2011, the Democratic president claimed that the Border Fence Act had reached completion, but Politifact rated the statement as “mostly false.” The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) had later asked to modify the mandate for double fencing to include other less imposing structures in places it deemed less threatening along the border.

This modification is an important one when it comes to Trump’s recent executive order. With Bill Clinton and Bush already having laid down border fences, the DHS may be inclined to simply accept some of these structures as they stand. While the president previously promised that it would be 50 feet high and made of concrete, he only outlined that it be “a contiguous, physical wall or other similarly secure, contiguous, and impassable physical barrier” in the recent executive order. Furthermore, the action gives the power to the secretary of Homeland Security, John Kelly, to report on what the best way to move forward with the structure is, leaving ample room for alterations.

Of course, there are several key difference between the Clinton and Bush fences with Mexico and the one proposed by Donald Trump. First of all, both of these presidents sought to fund the project through U.S. money. There was no promise to infringe on another country’s sovereignty by forcing them to pay for the structure, and thus, it caused nowhere near the diplomatic rift that the Trump wall has. Since the fallout, Trump has indicated that the wall may be paid for through a 20 percent tax on imports.

 Secondly, the estimated cost of the new wall is much higher than its predecessor. The Bush fence, the most expansive of the two, is estimated to have eventually worked out to around $4 million per mile and $24 million per mile with upkeep, totaling around $2.3 billion since 2006. While that’s more than originally planned, it’s a small sum in comparison to the Trump’s border project, which he estimates between $8 and $12 billion and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) puts somewhere around $38 billion.
 While the series of ’90s operations and the Mexico Border Fence Act didn’t attract nearly as much international outrage as Donald Trump’s wall, it is important to remember that Bill Clinton and George W. Bush had their own share of hard-line moments on immigration — at least some of which counted the support of Barack Obama and Hillary.

Officials announce proposal that would establish California as separate nation


waving flagPublished January 27, 2017 | FoxNews.com

URL of the original posting site: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/01/27/officials-announce-proposal-that-would-establish-california-as-separate-nation.html

A proposal for California to secede from the United States was submitted to the Secretary of State’s Office Thursday. The proposed “Calexit” initiative – its name borrowed from the UK’s “Brexit” departure from the EU – would ask voters to repeal part of the state constitution that declares California an inseparable part of the U.S.

A recent poll found that one in three California residents would support a possible secession from the U.S. due to their opposition to President Trump. No mention has been made of the president in the proposal. If the proposal qualifies for the ballot and is approved by voters, it could be a step to a future vote on whether the state would break away from the rest of the nation.trump-derangement-mental-disorder

Secretary of State Alex Padilla said the group behind the proposal, Yes California Independence Campaign, was cleared to begin attempting to collect nearly 600,000 voter signatures needed to place the plan on the ballot.

“In our view, the United States of America represents so many things that conflict with Californian values, and our continued statehood means California will continue subsidizing the other states to our own detriment, and to the detriment of our children,” the Yes campaign’s website says.liberal-leftist-derangement-syndrom

Similar attempts to establish California as a nation, or break it into multiple states, have failed.

The proposed constitutional amendment, titled California Nationhood, would also ask voters to repeal language that states the U.S. Constitution is the supreme law. If approved, it calls for scheduling a vote in 2019 to ask voters, “Should California become a free, sovereign and independent country?”

“America already hates California, and America votes on emotions,” Marcus Evans, vice president of Yes California told the Los Angeles Times. “I think we’d have the votes today if we held it.”

The campaign must submit the valid voter signatures by July 25 to qualify for the ballot.picture2

Black Panthers planning ‘armed march’ in Wilmington

A screenshot taken from event Face Book page

WILMINGTON — The Revolutionary Black Panther Party of Wilmington raised concerns among local officials this week when it announced its plans to host an “armed human rights march and armed freedom ride” Sunday in Wilmington.

Mayor Bill Saffo is concerned about attendees possibly being armed, but is confident Sunday’s march will pass without incident.

“I don’t think there’s a reason to come armed to an event. … If there’s an altercation with somebody, in the heat of the moment a tragedy could happen,” Saffo said, adding, “If you want to picket or you want to demonstrate in the City of Wilmington, it’s your right to do that, but you’re not allowed to bring a gun.”

According to North Carolina general statue, it is unlawful for any person participating in, affiliated with, or present as a spectator at a parade, funeral procession, picket line or demonstration to “willfully or intentionally possess or have immediate access to any dangerous weapon.” Jim Varrone, the Wilmington Police Department’s assistant chief, explained those laws to organizers, according to a police spokeswoman.

City Councilman Earl Sheridan said the march is an example of a group demonstrating its First Amendment-protected rights to freedom of assembly and will likely take place without any problems.

“I think a lot of times when people hear that name, they have a knee jerk reaction, whatever it is,” Sheridan said. words-of-a-leftist-propagandist

According to the local Black Panther Party’s Facebook page, which was created Dec. 25, the events are free and open to the public. The post states that on Saturday, the group will hold a “human rights tribunal” from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Creekwood Community Center, and on Sunday the organization has planned an “armed march against terrorism and genocide.” No location is listed for the march, but a comment on the post states that it is supposed to start at 1:30 p.m.

“I would hope it goes cleanly,” Saffo said. “Whatever they’re marching for and whatever condition they want to help fix or talk about, they have a right to be able to express themselves and say what they’re demonstrating about and why they’re demonstrating.”

No forms yet

Before last weekend’s Wilmington Women’s March, some protestors expressed concerns about a city ordinance requiring protesters to stand 15 feet apart. Police did not enforce the ordinance when more than 1,000 people showed up to last Saturday’s event, and it took place without any arrests or tension between protesters and law enforcement.

Cathryn Lindsay, the police spokeswoman, said the Black Panthers have notified the city of their intent to march, but have not yet submitted forms for the event.

“We don’t get permits or approve a march,” she said. “The form is a notice to picket, march or demonstrate just in case there are traffic or security concerns.”

Linda Rawley Thompson, another police spokeswoman, said Chief Ralph Evangelous would not comment on the planned march as the department was treating it like any other demonstration the city has seen.

“We are not foreseeing any problems at all,” she said. “Like any other march, we are going to provide any necessary security.” 

March for justice

A poster about the Black Panther march stated it is an “anti-genocide march for black-Africans murdered by police in America” and “justice for Brandon Smith, Walter Scott, Lamont Keith Scott and all the victims in North Carolina.”

Smith was wanted on charges of shooting a New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office deputy when he was shot and killed by several police officers Oct. 13 in a wooded area of Wrightsboro following a car chase and foot pursuit. The police shooting was deemed justified.

Walter Scott was shot to death on April 4, 2015 in Charleston, S.C. by a former police officer. Cellphone video taken by a bystander showed Scott being shot in the back five times. A mistrial was declared in December after a jury deadlocked in the murder trial of the former officer.

Lamont Keith Scott was killed by plainclothes officers who had gone to an apartment complex in Charlotte looking for a suspect with an outstanding warrant who was not Scott when they saw Scott in a car with a gun. In November, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg District Attorney said the officer’s actions in the killing were justified.

The ‘vagina hat wearers’ are out in full force and we need ammunition to fight back. Guys, this one is for you all. Use it wisely.

An undercover Veritas reporter attended the march with a pro-life sign and quickly saw what “liberal tolerance” looks like in person.

PV described their video on YouTube: “A Project Veritas journalist went undercover at the Women’s March. She was confronted by angry feminists who did not seem to agree with the signs that our journalist brought.”

The undercover journalist carried a sign that read: “Real feminists are pro-life.”

She was swiftly screamed at, condescended to, disrespected, insulted, etc. She noted that “they want to take a picture of me and then once they see my sign they refuse it.”

Feminists regularly claim that they are fighting for “choice” but clearly that doesn’t include the choice to protect the unborn.

The undercover journalist chanted: “real feminists are against abortion.”

One of the protesters replied, “Donald Trump likes to grab women’s pussy.”

Libs Who Want To Move To Canada Blocked By Its Strict Immigration Policies


waving flagAuthored by Photo of Luke Rosiak Luke Rosiak | Investigative Reporter | 10:09 PM 01/26/2017

Liberals seeking to move to Canada because they are unhappy with the election results are finding that Canada won’t take them because its immigration policies exclude those who won’t contribute to the economy. One of the policies of President Donald Trump that has some Democrats claiming they want to jump ship is his pledge to limit immigration from people whose lives in America would be dependent on welfare. Trump promises “extreme vetting” before accepting immigrants or refugees.

But Democrats looking to move from the U.S. to Australia, Canada and other wealthy English-speaking nations are learning that those nations already have similar policies.

A top law firm known for obtaining Canadian visas for U.S. citizens says there are three main ways to get in: by having in-demand job skills, by owning a business or having a high net worth, or by having relatives already there.

Canada’s official immigration page also sets a high bar, listing opportunities to “immigrate as a skilled worker,” “immigrate by starting a business and creating jobs” or “immigrate by investing in the Canadian economy.” The website had so many visitors immediately after Trump’s win that the server crashed.

It also maintains a refugee category, but targets people who have already been displaced “outside their home country,” and not those who want to move from their home country to Canada. Canada is willing only to be a last resort for refugees; such candidates are not eligible if they “have another durable solution for protection, such as an offer to be resettled in another country.” Even then, the nation known for its hockey and its Maple syrup then asks individual Canadians to pick up the bill, by either voluntarily funding the program or taking refugees in to their own homes. Individuals must be “selected as a government-assisted or privately sponsored refugee, or have the funds needed to support themselves and any dependents after they “arrive in Canadapicture7

Canada does have a special program for Syrian refugees and accepted 40,000 since November, 2015, about four times as many as the U.S. during the same time-span under former President Barack Obama.

As one hysterical liberal lamented on Facebook, “What are the actual implications of these Executive Douche Orders? Should I just pack my bags and move to Canada?” After researching the Canadian immigration system, the individual posted that he had determined that “ironically,” as an artist who could not afford to buy property and only rented a loft in Brooklyn, Canada had no desire in taking him in.picture8

Immigration rules for Australia and similar nations are comparable, with strict rules focused on accepting people that are a net value-added to their economy. (RELATED: Barbra Streisand Says She Plans To Move To Australia If Trump Wins)

Canada’s rules could be one reason Al Sharpton — who has failed to pay debts, including taxes — reneged on a promise to move there following Trump’s win. Lena Dunham also backtracked on her pledge to relocate, in spite of her assets.

Trump Says He Will Deliver On ‘Extreme Vetting’ For Immigrants And Refugees

Donald Trump said he will deliver on his campaign promise to enact “extreme vetting” for immigrants and refugees entering the United States.

In his first television interview since being sworn in as president, Trump said “our country has enough problems without allowing people to come in who, in many cases or in some cases, are looking to do tremendous destruction.”

“We’re going to have extreme vetting in all cases, and I mean extreme,” Trump told ABC’s David Muir Wednesday night“And we’re not letting people in if we think there’s even a little chance of some problem.”“We are excluding certain countries, but for other countries we are going to have extreme vetting. It’s going to be very hard to come in. Right now it’s very easy to come in. It’s going to be very, very hard. I don’t want terror in this country. You look at what happened in San Bernardino, you look at what happened all over. You look at what happened in the World Trade Center, OK?”against-america

When asked by Muir if he thought his vetting would “cause more anger among Muslims,” Trump said there’s “plenty of anger right now.”

“How can you get any more? The world is a mess. The world is as angry as it gets. The world is an angry place.”

Trump said it’s not strictly “a Muslim ban.”

“We’re talking about — no it’s not the Muslim ban,” he said. “But it’s countries that have tremendous terror, it’s countries that people are going to come in and cause us tremendous problems. Our country has enough problems without allowing people to come in who, in many cases or in some cases, are looking to do tremendous destruction.”

Only 2 Miles, but a Planet Away

Just over 2 miles from the U.S. Capitol lives Kariah Butler, a 10-year-old girl being raised by a single mom. Looking for a way out of the neighborhood public school, which last year graduated less than 50 percent of its class, Kariah’s mother signed her up for the federal school voucher program.picture5

Called the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program, it launched in 2004 to serve low-income students in the nation’s capital by awarding them vouchers to attend a private school of their choice. Spending a fraction per student compared to public schools, this school choice program has increased graduation rates by 21 percentage pointspicture6

Under the new Republican-led administration, school choice advocates are hopeful that efforts like the D.C Opportunity Scholarship Program won’t just survive, but perhaps even expand. On Thursday, President Donald Trump lent his support to the movement and issued an official proclamation declaring Jan. 22-28, 2017, as National School Choice Week.

The Daily Signal traveled to the Anacostia section of Washington to meet Kariah and see what life is like over the bridge, where school choice is helping, one child at a time.

Trump to Mexico: Don’t Bother Coming to Your Meeting if You Don’t Plan on Paying for Wall — UPDATE, Mexico’s President Responds


waving flagPosted on January 26, 2017

President Trump is not playing games when it comes to the wall and Mexico paying for it. In a response to President Nieto’s promise to protect illegals in America, Trump hits back hard… and we don’t think he is going to back down either.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday his Mexican counterpart, Enrique Pena Nieto, should cancel his scheduled visit to Washington if Mexico refuses to pay for a wall he has ordered constructed along the border.fence-act

His message could undo a planned summit next week during which the two leaders were expected to address a relationship frayed by the new U.S. president’s determination to build a wall along their shared border and to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.

A Mexican government minister said that cancelling the meeting would cause uncertainty.

“The U.S. has a 60 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico. It has been a one-sided deal from the beginning of NAFTA with massive numbers… of jobs and companies lost. If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting,” Trump said on Twitter.

Even before Trump’s tweet, Pena Nieto faced growing pressure at home to scrap the meeting over objections to the border wall.

The White House did not immediately return a request for comment.

Trump signed new executive orders, including one authorizing the planned wall, on Wednesday just as a Mexican delegation led by Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray arrived at the White House for talks.

The timing caused outrage in Mexico, with prominent politicians and many on social media seeing at as a deliberate snub to the government’s efforts to engage with Trump, who has for months used Mexico as a political punching bag.

UPDATE

Pena Nieto announced via social media on Thursday that he had informed the White House he would not visit Washington next week as scheduled.

“This morning we informed the White House that I will not attend the scheduled work meeting for next Tuesday with @POTUS,” he tweeted in Spanish.

YOU’VE BEEN PRE-APPROVED: Trump’s Wall Has Been LEGAL Since 2006


waving flagPosted on January 25, 2017

screen-shot-2016-12-08-at-10-56-49-am

This ought to shock the majority of Americans! If the law was approved, why wasn’t it enforced? The good news is that this will significantly decrease the work President-elect Trump will have to do. Secure our borders now!!

The Secure Fence Act was introduced on Sept. 13, 2006 by Secure Fence Actand passed Congress on a bi-partisan basis. In the House of Representatives, the Fence Act passed 283 -138 on September 14, 2006. On September 29, 2006, the Fence Act passed in the Senate 80 -19.

The law states in part:

Not later than 18 months after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Homeland Security shall take all actions the Secretary determines necessary and appropriate to achieve and maintain operational control over the entire international land and maritime borders of the United States, to include the following–

(1) systematic surveillance of the international land and maritime borders of the United States through more effective use of personnel and technology, such as unmanned aerial vehicles, ground-based sensors, satellites, radar coverage, and cameras; and (2) physical infrastructure enhancements to prevent unlawful entry by aliens into the United States and facilitate access to the international land and maritime borders by United States Customs and Border Protection, such as additional checkpoints, all-weather access roads, and vehicle barriers. (b) Operational Control Defined.–In this section, the term “operational control” means the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics, and other contraband.fence-act

The main goal of the Secure Fence Act of 2006 was to help secure America’s borders to decrease illegal entry, drug trafficking, and security threats by building 700 miles (1,100 km) of physical barriers along the Mexico-United States border. Later on in the bill it specifies what was supposed to be built was a double-layered fence with barbed-wire on top, and room for a security vehicle to patrol between the layers. Not bad right?screen-shot-2016-12-08-at-10-56-49-am

The first blow against the promised fence was made by Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) at the urging of DHS, in 2007 she proposed an amendment to give the Department discretion to decide what type of fence was appropriate in different areas. The law was amended to read,

“Nothing in this paragraph shall require the Secretary of Homeland Security to install fencing, physical barriers, roads, lighting, cameras, and sensors in a particular location along an international border of the United States, if the Secretary determines that the use or placement of such resources is not the most appropriate means to achieve and maintain operational control over the international border at such location.”no-more-rinos-2

Here’s the bottom line.  Back in 2006 the people of the U.S. were promised a two-layered high-tech Mexican border fence, Thanks to Kay Bailey Hutchison and Barack Obama 95% of the fence wasn’t built. The arguments against the fence are bogus especially if you look at Israel’s history.

Now Donald Trump has promised America a border wall, and that same amendment that allowed the Obama administration to downgrade the required double-layered fencing may very well allow the Trump Administration to upgrade from a fence to a wall.

It’s time for America to get the border barrier we were promised .  No one can honestly say it wont work. It worked in Israel, and it’s never been tried here.

Report: Islamic State Using Drones to Drop Bombs with ‘Pinpoint Accuracy’


waving flagAuthored by Edwin Mora | 26 Jan 2017

“I am aware that ISIL has used commercial-off-the-shelf UAVs [unmanned aerial vehicles] to drop small explosive weapons,” Air Force Col. John Dorrian, a top U.S. military spokesman in Baghdad, told the Washington Times. “This capability is dangerous and has propaganda value, but it will not change the fact that the enemy is being defeated in both Iraq and Syria.”Oh good

The Times reports:

The new capability raises the specter that the Islamic State one day could attack urban areas from the air, not just on the ground. The U.S. military is alarmed by the terrorist army’s quick technological advances and is evaluating more than 20 systems to detect and destroy its drone air force. Other systems already have been rushed to the war.

Earlier this month, the Pentagon confirmed that ISIS is using small drones carrying grenade-like explosives in Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city. The drones have caused civilian and military casualties, the Pentagon revealed. A U.S.-backed Iraqi offensive is currently fighting to push ISIS out of Mosul.

In a January 18 letter, then-U.S. Army Secretary Eric K. Fanning reportedly wrote Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), a U.S. Marine veteran and member of the House Armed Services Committee, that the jihadi drone threat is on the rise.

“These advances present our adversaries with opportunities to quickly adjust and improve their tactics, and the Army must remain adaptive and agile to respond to the evolving threat,” declared Fanning. against-america

He revealed that the U.S. military is testing more than 20 government and industry systems “designed to detect, identify and electronically defeat” jihadi drones.

In a propaganda video disseminated on social media Tuesday, ISIS featured aerial footage of a Chinese Skywalker X8 drone that can be purchased on Amazon targeting clusters of Iraqi soldiers, tanks, and buildings. The video captured ISIS’ ability to assemble, arm, deploy, and guide drones to locate and strike specific targets.

Steven Stalinsky, executive director of the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which obtained the video from an ISIS Internet channel, described the small aircraft as “the first offensive drone able to carry bombs, albeit small ones.”

Echoing the former U.S. Army secretary, the MEMRI chief predicted that ISIS will expand its use of drones.

“They have been using drones for a few years, mainly for their films, but there has been a major increase in usage,” Mr. Stalinsky said, adding that drones “are easily obtainable online, then can be modified. We have seen many drones used by ISIS that can be bought on Amazon.” 

ISIS has been employing the use of commercially available drones for reconnaissance and to capture footage for propaganda videos. The jihadist group has also reportedly used drones to drop grenades. The Iraqi military has confirmed, too, that ISIS has weaponized drones.

“Daesh [ISIS] uses drones for surveillance and sometimes it attaches explosives to them and uses to target commanders or headquarters,” Lt. Gen. Abdul Wahab al-Saidi of Iraq’s Counter Terrorism Service told reporters in November at a military headquarters in a Mosul suburb.

Rep. Hunter told the Times that after a classified briefing on Tuesday, he is confident the U.S. military in Iraq is capable of defeating ISIS drones.

President Donald Trump’s Justice Department will likely find numerous offenses to warrant launching a broad investigation into voter fraud, legal experts and watchdog groups say. Trump has said that more than 3 million to 5 million illegal votes were cast during the 2016 election, causing him to receive a lower popular vote total than his vanquished opponent, Hillary Clinton, whom he defeated in the Electoral College.

One legal organization took action on preventing voter fraud this week. The Public Interest Legal Foundation, a voter integrity group, reached a consent decree with Noxubee County, Mississippi, which has had voter registration that exceeds the number of county residents since 2011, according to the group. A consent decree is a legal agreement between two parties without an acknowledgment of guilt. 

The decree includes requiring the county to identify dead voters on the rolls, clear voter rolls of former county residents, and mail all registered voters who have been inactive since January 2011.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation this week is also seeking to pry the release of information about noncitizens registered to vote in Manassas, Virginia.

Logan Churchwell, spokesman for the Public Interest Legal Foundation, said it is good that the Justice Department won’t just leave it to the nonprofit groups to weed out fraud.

“We need to know how many noncitizens are voting and know the unknowns,” Churchwell told The Daily Signal. “Trump could just enforce the law. The giant research project he tweeted about, or had a series of tweets about, is worthwhile and only something the federal government could do.”

It’s likely that 800,000 noncitizens illegally voted in the last presidential election, according to Jesse Richman, an associate professor of political science at Old Dominion University, who extrapolated on a 2014 study that examined illegal voting in the 2008 and 2010 elections.

Before the 2016 election, there were several documented cases of voter fraud. These included an FBI probe that found 19 dead people were registered to vote in Harrisonburg, Virginia; a woman arrested in Des Moines, Iowa, for voting twice for Trump; and a CBS News investigation that found multiple cases of dead voters and double voting in Colorado.

8 Instances of Voter Fraud in 2016, and It’s Not Even Election Day Yet

 

Churchwell asserted Trump’s 3 million or more projection couldn’t be proven or disproven, but regardless of whether this is an overstatement, President Barack Obama’s Justice Department ignored Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act, better known as the “motor voter” law. This provision requires local governments to maintain and keep voter rolls current.

The Obama administration has not enforced this provision of the motor voter law, and in Florida, Wisconsin, and Ohio, even took action to prevent maintaining the voter registration rolls.partyof-deceit-spin-and-lies

Still others, such as Michael Waldman, president of the Brennan Center for Justice, a liberal legal group at the New York University School of Law, insisted voter fraud is a myth and opposed an investigation.

“An expensive investigation of imaginary voter fraud is not needed. It could easily devolve into a witch hunt,” Waldman said in a public statement. “Worse, it could be used to justify sweeping voting restrictions. There is no need for another investigation that is not independent, rigorous, and fact-based.”

Waldman continued:

“There is a great deal of evidence that our voting system locks out far too many eligible citizens from voting. The voter registration system needs an upgrade, and that is something that should unite all Americans. Errors on the voter rolls are emphatically not signs of fraud—they are signs that we need to improve the system.”words-of-a-leftist-propagandist

An investigation into voter fraud would not be complicated, said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, a government watchdog group.

“You can see the numbers we are talking about by looking at public voter registration lists and cross-checking that against a list of noncitizens,” Fitton told The Daily Signal. “The federal government could coordinate with state and local governments and determine who registered to vote illegally. It’s a simple process. That’s why the left is so upset. They know the jig is up.”

Enforcing the law is long overdue, said Hans von Spakovsky, manager of the Election Law Reform Initiative at The Heritage Foundation.

“We don’t need [to create] a commission. The Justice Department can enforce the law and work with the Department of Homeland Security, and its records for citizenship and change of status to get an idea of who is illegally registered to vote,” von Spakovsky told The Daily Signal.

Regardless of the investigation’s outcome, von Spakovsky expects critics will dismiss anything that falls short of Trump’s 3 to 5 million illegal voter estimate.

“They may try to dismiss this, but the American people don’t believe what the media say about voter fraud not being real,” von Spakovsky said. “Polling solidifies that.”

Ann Coulter Letter: Can I Be The Poster Child Against Obamacare?


waving flagCommentary by  Ann Coulter

Like millions of Americans who are paying thousands of dollars a year for health insurance no doctors will take, I would love to be flying to Washington this week, pleading with members of Congress, spearheading letter-writing campaigns and appearing as a witness, to tell everyone about my experiences with Obamacare. But none of us can, because we’re too busy working so we can afford to pay for the health care of 22 million poor, entitled or irresponsible people under Obamacare.

Just yesterday, for example, in addition to working, I had to spend an hour — on top of days and days last month — figuring out which few remaining clinics provide mammograms under my brand-new, now third Obamacare insurance plan. My original plan was made “illegal” by Obamacare, and the next two plans — fully approved under Obamacare — went bankrupt and were shut down by state and federal regulators.

Now I just have to pray I don’t get cancer or break a bone before Obamacare is repealed because, even at $700 a month with a gigantic deductible, there is NO PLAN on the individual market accepted by the two premier hospitals in my area for cancer or broken bones.complete-message

Those $700 premiums go to pay for the pregnancies and dental care for welfare recipients and immigrants, not cancer treatment for Ann.

Democrats love to get on their high horses about the wonderful things Obamacare has done for the uninsured. They should be asked why they refuse to live under it. After they spend 800 hours changing insurance plans every year, ending up with increasingly expensive and increasingly useless plans — all so that their premiums can pay for the poor — I’ll be fascinated to hear about their love for the downtrodden.

Same with Republicans who are, once again, being bamboozled by lobbyists, to the detriment of their taxpaying constituents who don’t have time or money to fly to Washington and tell them our hard-luck stories. Insurance lobbyists have somehow convinced politicians, who have very little experience in the private sector, that health insurance is wildly different from every other product — even car insurance and homeowner’s insurance — because of its need for a large pool of enrollees. Everyone talks about the enrollment problem as if this is a bug unique to the health insurance industry. What product, do they imagine, does not need lots of customers?

How could restaurants afford those chefs, fresh flowers, industrial kitchens, one hundred sets of plates, napkins and silverware and a staff of waiters — without customers? AHHHH! THEY’LL GO OUT OF BUSINESS!!! THE MODEL DOESN’T WORK WITHOUT LOTS OF PARTICIPANTS! CONGRESS MUST GET INVOLVED.

Publishers couldn’t have editors, proofreaders, lawyers, paper plants and marketing departments — unless there’s a large pool of book buyers. Pipe manufacturers couldn’t have hundreds of employees, huge machines and factories unless — you get the idea.

Why is “having customers” treated like some freakish need of this one industry? People are a lot less interested in buying hotel rooms, restaurant meals and pipes than they are in buying health insurance. Everyone knows someone who has died of cancer or had some other major medical problem, and most people are not insane.

Even with the hell of Obamacare, requiring hundreds of hours of work — to research, sign up for, be thrown off of, then sign up for a different, ever-more-expensive plan, year after year — the long-suffering taxpayer is doing all that in order to maintain some form of health insurance. So apparently, no matter how awful you make it, this is a product Americans are desperate to buy!complete-message

Republicans all say they want to save the so-called “good parts” of Obamacare. Because who knows better what the American consumer wants than a member of Congress!

I keep imagining Congress designing a “comprehensive hotel reform bill,” promising to save the popular parts: “BUT PEOPLE LIKE HAVING TV’S IN THEIR HOTEL ROOMS!” How could we ever get TVs in hotel rooms without Congress writing a law?

It turns out, people running a business have an uncanny ability to figure out what’s popular with their customers. Any “popular” features of Obamacare obviously, manifestly, inevitably will be preserved by the free market. If parents like keeping their useless millennial kids on their plans, guess what? Any insurance company forced to compete with other insurance companies WILL OFFER THAT.

As for covering people with “pre-existing conditions” — there are pre-existing conditions and pre-existing conditions. Does this mean the unfortunate few with some exorbitantly expensive medical problem? Or does it mean people who have a “pre-existing condition” because they waited to be diagnosed with cancer before buying insurance?

The first category of people was dealt a bad hand. Eventually, they will be taken care of by the market when excess coverage policies are common and reinsurance companies pop up to cover the primary insurance companies. Until then, a separate program can pay for the unlucky. That’s not a reason to wreck the health insurance market for everyone else. There aren’t 22 million people with horrifyingly expensive medical conditions. They’re being used as the baby seals to sell subsidized health care for the irresponsible.

The second category is a lot less sympathetic, which is precisely why the two cases are always conflated. You can’t buy flood insurance after your house has already floated away.

But we won’t let people die in the streets, so — as Trump said at the very first GOP debate — they will be dealt with “through a different system.” They probably can’t go to Sloan Kettering, but then again, neither can I. Right now, my $700 a month pays for them to go to Sloan Kettering.

Both cases are of zero practical importance to the vast majority of people who just want to buy health insurance on the free market, rather than what we’re doing now, which is giving shiftless layabouts and irresponsible screw-offs an unlimited health care credit card — paid for through our insurance premiums.

We’d come to Washington and tell you that, but we’re working to pay for the pediatric dental care of illegal aliens.complete-message

Democrats Unify Around Shutting Down White People


waving flagAuthored by Photo of Scott Greer Scott Greer | Deputy Editor | 11:21 AM 01/25/2017

URL of the original posting site: http://dailycaller.com/2017/01/25/democrats-unify-around-shutting-down-white-people/#ixzz4Wp7XN7ch

A Democratic National Committee candidate forum showed a party united in one theme: white people need to shut up. A white female chair hopeful ventured forth to state her very job was to keep to her fellow Caucasians in their proper place at the Monday night event.

“My job is to shut other white people down when they want to say, ‘oh, no, I’m not prejudiced; I’m a Democrat; I’m accepting,’” Sally Boynton Brown, Idaho Democratic Committee chairwoman and DNC chair candidate, declared. (RELATED: White Candidate For DNC Chair Says Her Job Will Be ‘To Shut Other White People Down’)

She further said that she would shut white people down when they try to interrupt minorities, make sure that they “get” their white privilege and encourage minorities to school Caucasians on all the important topics.Socialism alert

These anti-white comments appear remarkable to come from someone who hopes to lead a major political party — who also happens to be white herself. There’s still a lot of white people in America, and you need a substantial number of them to win elections. So adopting as your party message, “shut up and check your white privilege!” seems pretty counter-productive.

Then again, it’s par for the course for the modern Democratic Party. Other candidates for the chair position nodded along with Brown’s statements at the forum, showing their clear approval for what she was saying. The leading candidate for to be the next leader of the DNC is Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, who once proposed for a black ethno-state to be carved out of America. The reason for this black nationalist dream was to get away from all those bad white people. (RELATED: Keith Ellison Once Proposed Making A Separate Country For Blacks) Ellison also once said the Constitution is evidence of “a white racist conspiracy to subjugate other peoples.”What did you say 07.jpg

Shockingly, these comments have hardly hurt the Minnesota congressman among his fellow Democrats. When confronted by The Daily Caller on his comments, several Democratic lawmakers found nothing “objectionable” in Ellison’s black nationalist past. (RELATED: Black Congressmen Refuse To Condemn Ellison’s Past Proposal For A ‘Black State’)

The 2016 Democratic primary — which pitted two elderly whites against each other — at times resembled a competition as to who could bash Caucasians and check their privilege the most. Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders admitted that they had white privilege and said that their fellow whites should own up to that trait.

Clinton and Sanders placed the blame for the woes of minority communities on systemic racism — the idea that America’s institutions are set up to favor whites and disenfranchise non-whites. They also lashed out at Donald Trump’s “white supremacy” and preyed upon the fears of minority voters that the man who won the election would take away their rights if he gained power. While she was the party’s nominee, Clinton made similar (though not as egregious) comments to Brown’s groveling.

“I will call for white people, like myself, to put ourselves in the shoes of those African-American families, who fear every time their children go somewhere, who have to have the talk about … how to really protect themselves, when they are the ones who should be expecting protection from encounters with the police,” Clinton stated during a July 2016 CNN interview. “I’m going to be talking to white people. I think we are the ones who have to start listening to the legitimate cries that are coming from our African-American fellow citizens, and we have so much more to be done, and we have got to get about the business of doing it.” what-did-you-say-02

The then-presidential candidate made those comments in response to a black nationalist murdering five police officers in Dallas, Texas. Even when whites are the victims of racially-motivated crimes, they are somehow still responsible for them, according to the wisdom of the new Democratic elite.More Evidence

This condescending form of identity politics is obviously not going to help Democrats win back Rust Belt voters who pulled the lever for Trump. Moreover, it could potentially cause deep divisions within their own base. For instance, during the Women’s March last weekend, one viral image showed a major potential conflict that could burst out into the open.

Don’t forget: white women voted for Trump read the sign of a not-too pleased black woman while smiling white females took selfies of themselves in pussy hats in the background. It’s clear those white women didn’t vote for Trump, but they have to be lectured about it anyway due to their race, according to the woman who held the sign.

“I don’t think it’s a matter of white women becoming interested in our issues; I need them to recognize they are implicit or complicit benefactors of systems like white supremacy and patriarchy—and that’s a problem,” Angela Peoples, the sign holder, told The Root.What did you say 05.jpg

Nobody likes to be belittled for something they didn’t do and have no control over. How the mostly white women marchers will feel about being told to go to the back of the Democratic bus is yet to be determined, but it’s likely some will not be too happy with that idea.

If one thing is clear from recent events, it’s that the Democratic Party’s one unifying message is telling white people to shut up — the opinions of non-whites matter more than yours.

Donald Trump Signs Executive Actions: ‘Today the USA Gets Back Control of its Borders’


waving flagAuthored by Charlie Spiering | 25 Jan 2017

“A nation without borders is not a nation,” Trump said after the signing ceremony. “Beginning today, the United States of  America gets back control of its borders, gets back its borders.”

After the orders were signed, Vice President Mike Pence swore in Gen. John Kelly as the Department of Homeland Security Secretary.

Donald Trump explained that when he asked his Department of Defense Secretary Gen. James Mattis for suggestions of whom to choose as head of the Department of Homeland Security, Mattis recommended Gen. Kelly “without hesitation” 

“He’s a rough, tough guy but he’s also got a good heart,” Trump added.

Trump addressed a large audience of DHS employees and reporters, promising to help them do their jobs at the border.

“This is a law enforcement agency,” he said. “But for too long your offices and agents haven’t been allowed to properly do your jobs.” 

He said that he would focus on enforcing existing laws on immigration and security, rather than trying to pass new laws. Trump specifically addressed families who lost loved ones as a result of illegal immigrant crime. Trump said that pundits and the media have ignored victims of open borders. “To all of those hurting out there, I repeat to you these words. We hear you, we see you and you will never, ever be ignored again,” he said.

He vowed to support law enforcement officials for enforcing the rule of law in the United States.

“When it comes to public safety, there is no place for politics; no Republicans, no Democrats, just citizens,” he said.

Trump Administration’s Pro-Life Statement: Conway at March for Life

The highest-ranking woman in President Trump’s administration, Kellyanne Conway, will defend the sanctity of life and rally against abortion at the 43rd Annual March for Life — the world’s largest annual pro-life demonstration — in Washington, D.C., on Friday, Jan. 27.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer spoke about the administration’s involvement in the March for Life. “I know Kellyanne [Conway] is going to attend the event,” Spicer said in the second official White House press conference. “I think we’re still working through the details, but we’ll have further information about the president’s potential participation in that.”

Unrestricted abortion access was a key theme on which Hillary Clinton and her running mate Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine campaigned during the 2016 bid for the White House — and under the Trump administration the priorities on the issue are clear.

“We are thrilled to have Kellyanne Conway speak at this year’s March for Life. As the first female to run a successful presidential campaign and a steadfast advocate for life and family issues, Kellyanne beautifully embodies the 2017 March for Life’s theme, ‘The Power of One,’” said March for Life President Jeanne Mancini in a statement.

/* */

Conway, who served as Donald Trump’s unflappable campaign manager and senior adviser to the president-elect’s transition team, recently joined the White House as counselor to the president. A veteran pollster and political strategist, she played no small role in helping Trump win the White House.

To be sure, her presence at Friday’s rally will underscore the Trump administration’s pro-life commitment. On Monday, President Trump signed an executive order reinstating the Mexico City Policy, which defunds groups that promote abortions overseas, such as International Planned Parenthood. It does not, however, bar foreign aid for health care and humanitarian relief.

“President Trump’s immediate action to promote respect for all human life, including vulnerable unborn children abroad, as well as conscience rights, sends a strong signal about his administration’s pro-life priorities,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life advocacy group, in an email to LifeNews.com.

Conway is a mom to four small children and the president and CEO of The Polling Company Inc./WomanTrend. At the March for Life rally on the National Mall, she will join Archbishop of New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, former Planned Parenthood Director Abby Johnson (who is also the founder of “And Then There Were None”), Mexican Telenovela star Karyme Lozano, author and radio host Eric Metaxas, Bishop Vincent Matthews of the Church of God in Christ, who advocates for adoption in the African-American community, and others.

“It is our hope that this year’s March for Life will encourage each of us to seek and fulfill our unique mission to the best of our ability, because only in doing so we will collectively build a culture of life in the U.S. — a culture where abortion is unthinkable,” added Mancini in her statement.

“Tens of thousands of Americans are expected to travel to D.C. for this year’s March for Life, which seeks to promote the dignity of every human life and to stand against the greatest human rights violation of our time: abortion on demand,” read a March for Life press release.

The LifeSiteNews website said that 60 million babies have been aborted since 1973.I AM A PERSON with Poem

The pro-life gathering, with its unifying pro-life theme, stands in sharp contrast to last week’s March on Washington, where marchers — including Madonna, who told the crowd she had “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House”— seemed to have a million messages, as an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal noted. The Material Girl later walked back her comment.

Meanwhile, pro-life groups, including New Wave Feminists and Students for Life of America, were excluded from officially participating.

The March for Life is set to begin around 1:00 p.m. EST, following the conclusion of the rally.

Trump Freezes EPA Grants to Liberal Pet Projects

Officials at the Environmental Protection Agency have reportedly been instructed to freeze all of the agency’s contracts and grant programs until officials in the new administration can conduct a top-to-bottom review.

“Right now we are in a holding pattern. The new EPA administration has asked that all contract and grant awards be temporarily suspended, effective immediately. Until we receive further clarification, this includes task orders and work assignments,” an internal email originally obtained by Pro Publica said.

In 2013, the EPA gave $84,000 to a researcher at the University of Michigan to study the effectiveness of using churches to promote environmental causes.

“The EPA awards more than $4 billion in funding for government grants and contracts each year,” Fox News reported on Tuesday.

A brief look at how some of that money was being spent under the Obama administration paints a clear picture as to why the new administration may be looking at an overhaul: In some cases, the Obama EPA has offered textbook case studies in how to waste taxpayer money on ideologically motivated projects.

> In 2014 the University of California, Riverside received $15,000 to create technology to reduce carbon emissions from those infamous scourges of the environment: barbecues. That same year, researchers at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University were given $15,000 of taxpayers’ money to build a pond on a roof, complete with a floating island.
/* */

> Also in 2014, the EPA awarded $15,000 to the University of Tulsa to create a system that monitored how much water hotel guests used while showering. The proposal made the rather Orwellian promise that the “technology will … assist hotel guests in modifying their behavior.”

> As creepy and ideologically motivated as that grant may have been, at the very least it attempted to address domestic water waste. The agency gave $1.5 million to the University of Colorado and the National Center for Atmospheric Research to study pollution caused by residential cooking — in Africa.

> In 2013, the EPA gave $84,000 to a researcher at the University of Michigan to study the effectiveness of using churches to promote environmental causes.

“Climate change — which affects traditional faith-based efforts to improve human health, mitigate poverty and redress social inequity — is inspiring religious organizations to advocate for clean air and water, restore ecosystems, and conserve resources,” the grant stated. “This project seeks to understand the empirical experiences of faith-based environmental efforts within communities.”REALLY

> The EPA seems to really like the idea of using churches as political propaganda centers. In 2015, the Washington Free Beacon reported that the EPA gave a $30,000 “environmental justice grant” to a Unitarian church that has preached against “white privilege” and called America “structurally racist.”

While not spending money in foreign countries and encouraging pastors to promote radical environmentalism, the EPA also seems to have spent considerable funds trying to answer questions to which the collective wisdom of the human experience already knows the answer.

> In 2014, the EPA gave a post-grad student at the University of Oregon $84,000 to study the link between plants and people, and whether or not living in densely populated urban areas with little to no vegetation is unhealthy (it is).More Evidence

While it is not yet known if current contracts will also be affected by the grant freeze, militant environmentalists across the country are undoubtedly pulling out their hair in fury at the news that no longer will the EPA spend money on liberal pet projects. Responsible Americans who wish their tax money be spent prudently, however, are likely to support the freeze.picture1

Democrats And Republicans Unite To Rescind Last-Minute Obama Order Seeking Federal Election Takeover


waving flagAuthored by Photo of Richard Pollock Richard Pollock | Reporter | 9:59 PM 01/24/2017

All 50 state secretaries of state are urging the Trump administration to rescind a last-minute Department of Homeland Security directive calling state election systems “critical infrastructure.” Many state officials fear this is the first step toward a federal takeover of state-run elections, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

While deep political discord may be found on other issues, state secretaries — who oversee all election machinery — appear completely united against the former administration’s attempt to insert the federal government into state-run elections.

Then-Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson surprised and outraged state election officials with his Jan. 6 action, just two weeks before President-elect Donald Trump was to assume the presidency. Johnson tried to portray his move as part of the Obama administration’s effort against Russian government hacking of Democratic Party emails during the presidential campaign. But state officials retort that election machines and the infrastructure are not connected to the Internet and therefore are immune to cybersecurity attacks.partyof-deceit-spin-and-lies

Incoming DHS Secretary John Kelly indicated in written testimony prior to his confirmation he was troubled by Johnson’s directive.

“The notion that DHS can or should exercise some degree of influence over state voting systems is highly controversial and appears to be a political question beyond the scope of DHS’ current legislative cyber mandates,” Kelly wrote.

The National Association of Secretaries of State, which represent secretaries in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and American Samoa, is planning to take up the DHS action at its next full meeting. It is scheduled to be held in Washington, D.C., in mid-February. Association president Denise Merrill, who also serves as the secretary of state for Connecticut, told TheDCNF in an interview, “I’m certain this will be a hot topic among all of us.”

Merrill confirmed the association and many secretaries of state have been in touch with Trump transition staff seeking revocation.

“I haven’t heard one Secretary of State — Democrat or Republican — that’s for this,” she said. Merrill is a Democrat.

Republican Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler, who served as the association’s immediate past president, urged Trump Jan. 11 to “direct the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to rescind the designation of state election systems as ‘critical infrastructure.’”

A DHS spokesman told TheDCNF he could not comment on a possible revocation by Kelly.

Johnson sent shockwaves through every state capital when he issued his official proclamation, stating, “I have determined that election infrastructure in this country should be designated as a subsector of the existing Government Facilities critical infrastructure sector.” He broadly put all state election facilities under the federal “critical infrastructure” purview. His designation would affect all state-operated polling places, centralized vote tabulations location, election storage facilities and IT systems holding voter registration databases.Oh good

He also angered state officials because the federal designation would exempt future election activities from public access via the Freedom of Information Act or from state open record laws.

“This something that came out of the blue,” noted Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp in an interview with TheDCNF. “They had never talked to any Secretaries of State or election officials around the country before the whole critical infrastructure designation came up. We were literally blindsided by this.”

“We thought we had turned the tide in convincing DHS that this was not the thing to do,” Schedler told TheDCNF. “It was very obvious to everyone — and it was nonpartisan, my Democratic colleagues were as against this as my Republican colleagues.”

“Suddenly, it was decided that they were going ahead with it and we didn’t get any notice and read about it in the paper,” Merrill recalled. “I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have some concern about it. It’s not a particularly partisan issue at this point.”

The association called the designation, “legally and historically unprecedented and raised questions for states and local governments about administration of the voting process.” Critics contend the action was part of a long-standing goal by progressive activists to “nationalize” future elections with a federal takeover.that-is

“There’s no denying what this looks like: a blatant move to politicize the election process,” wrote Heritage Foundation founder Edwin Feulner in a Jan. 16 opinion article.

Feulner, a staunch conservative, called Johnson’s action a “federal takeover” of state-run elections. “It’s a takeover ostensibly designed to address a nonexistent security threat — and in the process, ironically, make our elections less secure.”

Kemp agreed, saying, “I think that the Obama administration was interested in a universal or nationwide registration data base versus the states doing that. It was part of nationalizing elections which I think is a terrible idea.”

While the Obama administration tied its action to Russian hacking, election machinery is not connected to the Internet.

“All our equipment you actually vote on — the scanners or touch screens or whatever a state uses — are not connected to anything,” Merrill told TheDCNF. “They are not connected to the Internet. They’re not connected even to internal systems.”

“I don’t think they (DHS) understood the election process,” she added. “It’s not very cyber and I’m not sure they exactly understood that.”

Merrill also added that the hacking of the emails from the Democratic National Committee and of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta were not part of the government’s election systems.

“It was not a hacking of the election. It was a hacking of emails at the DNC which is NOT a government agency,” she added.

Support for the designation can be found among liberals and members of the Congressional Black Caucus. Jan. 16, Rep. Hank Johnson, a Georgia Democrat who also is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, introduced legislation to support the designation.

“In the wake of the DNC server hack and well-documented efforts by states to suppress the vote, citizens are rightly concerned,” Johnson stated when he introduced the bill.

Liberal ‘Microaggressions’ Become Assaults

“Micro-aggression,” “Politically Correct,” charges of racism, flat-earthers, Islamophobes; all of these are leftist’s efforts to censor righteous, intelligent thought.

A “micro-aggression” is anything you say with which a leftist disagrees.  These people have not been educated, but indoctrinated into believing whatever lies advance the cause of socialism to establish their tyrannyIf you disagree by exercising critical thought to disprove their beliefs then you are satanic in their minds because leftist ideology is their religion.  These are the people who infiltrated Catholicism to establish the Inquisition.free speech def

Here are examples of looney leftists verbally assaulting people.  Let’s see if you can count how many “micro-aggressions” this woman inflicts on a fellow passenger of this plane because he supports Trump.

Liberal on a plane assaults Trump voter

Every sentence she speaks is an attack.  There are thirteen written and she is then recorded making six egregious verbal “micro-aggressions” to the passenger.  She then defies the authority who tells her to vacate the plane and goes into defensive mode when she realizes she’s being kicked off.  This is pinnacle of looney liberal stupidity believing she has the right to accost this man without consequence.

“That man doesn’t ‘believe’ in climate change.  Do you believe in gravity?”More Evidence

That is the kind of moral equivalence that ignorant liberals make.  They said the same thing about Reagan in 1980 and he won the Cold War without firing a shot!  Leftists’ equating the Democrat’s global warming political scam with actual science is farcical.  If you don’t believe in their religion of man-made climate change then you don’t believe in science and should be burned at the stake.  It is liberals who are ignorant of science when they fall for the fraud being perpetrated by the likes of Al Gore.

Though there may not be much hope for those like Bill Maher and those who believe a comedian is an intelligent source of moral truth:

Bill Maher mocks the righteous

Maher’s intelligence is marred by his lack of a moral compass, but he makes funny jokes.  To a liberal, mocking what is right is a valid debunking of righteousness and truth.  To Maher’s claim; is it that people who became drug addicts got stupid and voted Republican, or that people who saw Democrats becoming drug dependent fools relying on government to run their lives wised up?  Like all liberal comedians he lacks the understanding that “we mock what we do not understand.”good-evil-and-evil-good

A Look at 4 of the GOP’s Obamacare Replacement Plans


waving flagAuthored by Melissa Quinn / / January 23, 2017

During the 114th Congress, Republicans introduced at least 400 bills changing the health care system and crafted several Obamacare replacement plans, including “A Better Way,” which was released by House Speaker Paul Ryan and the Republican conference last year.

As Republicans debate their strategy for repealing and replacing Obamacare, GOP lawmakers have been accused of failing to put forth a replacement plan for the health care law. But since President Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law in 2010, Republicans in both the House and Senate have unveiled a number of proposals mapping out how the health care law would be replaced, should it be dismantled.

Most of the major plans share some key provisions: they offer tax credits to consumers; expand the use of health savings accounts, or medical savings accounts; and reform Medicaid. But differences emerge in the nitty gritty details of each proposal, including whether tax credits are based on age or income, where to cap the tax exclusion on employer-sponsored coverage, and whether to turn Medicaid into a block grant program or per capita allotment.

House and Senate Republicans, along with President Donald Trump, are meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Thursday and Friday for their annual retreat, where House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said earlier this month lawmakers will have a “full, exhausting” conversation on their plan for repealing and replacing Obamacare.

Already, there are at least four plans crafted to replace the law. On Monday, Republican Sens. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and Susan Collins of Maine introduced another proposal ahead of this week’s GOP gathering.

While the other major Republican proposals repeal all of Obamacare, the Cassidy-Collins plan repeals only the health care law’s mandates, like the individual and employer mandates; maintains its subsidies and taxes; and allows states that like Obamacare to keep Obamacare.

In addition to the Cassidy-Collins plan, The Daily Signal examined proposals offered by Ryan and the Republican conference; Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., who Trump nominated for secretary of health and human services; the Republican Study Committee; and Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina, Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, and Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan.

See how these Obamacare replacement plans stack up.

What Trump’s Decision to Move Embassy to Jerusalem Would Mean

The Trump administration is undecided about relocating the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a campaign promise that carries historical and symbolic significance to Israelis, Palestinians, and the broader Middle East.

On Monday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said there are “no decisions” on relocating the embassy to Jerusalem, a move that previous Republican and Democratic presidents have also promised to do, but decided against to avoid taking sides over who controls the ancient and holy city.

As President Donald Trump’s administration decides whether to break that tradition, observers of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict say this president appears serious about moving the embassy, based on his consistent campaign rhetoric, and his decision to pick David Friedman as ambassador to Israel.

Friedman has opposed a two-state solution, and upon being nominated, he said he looked forward to working “from the U.S. Embassy in Israel’s eternal capital, Jerusalem,” rather than Tel Aviv.

“What’s interesting is that many presidents have made this same promise during campaigns and failed to follow through,” said Jonathan Schanzer, a scholar in Middle Eastern studies and vice president of research at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

“This time, it looks like things may be different, given Trump’s selection of Friedman as ambassador and the statements both of them have made,” Schanzer told The Daily Signal in an interview.

Because Jerusalem is a contested city, the U.S. Embassy’s location in Tel Aviv, the commercial and cultural hub of Israel, has long been a diplomatic challenge for American and Israeli leaders. U.S. policy officially says the embassy should be moved to Jerusalem.amen

A 1995 U.S. law passed by bipartisan margins and signed by President Bill Clinton declares Jerusalem to be Israel’s capital and requires the embassy to be moved there.

Yet since its passage, Clinton, and Presidents George W. Bush, a Republican, and Barack Obama, a Democrat, have chosen not to implement the move, using a presidential waiver every six months that the law allows for national security reasons. The latest waiver expires June 1, and it’s unclear if Trump could move the embassy before then, experts say.

Israel’s parliament, Supreme Court, and seat of government are already located in West Jerusalem, which is majority Jewish. Indeed, Israel is the only nation in the world where the U.S. doesn’t keep an embassy in the host government’s preferred capital. But in the 1967 war between Israel and its Arab neighbors, Israel took control and annexed East Jerusalem—which is predominantly Arab—and expanded the boundaries of what it calls its “eternal capital.”

The U.S. and most other countries have refused to recognize the annexation and kept their embassies in or around Tel Aviv.

Moving the embassy to Jerusalem, experts say, could please Israeli Jews who believe it would signal that the U.S. recognizes Israel’s claim to the entirety of the city. It could also reassure the right-wing government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after the Obama administration allowed the adoption of a United Nations Security Council resolution that condemns Israel’s settlement construction.

For Palestinians and supporters in the Arab world, however, moving the embassy to Jerusalem would prejudge Palestinian claims to a capital in the city’s east, and supersede a final resolution to the conflict with Israel. In addition, the move could increase the risk of violence as Palestinians look to defend Jerusalem.

“It would bolster Israel, the closest U.S. ally in the Middle East, but it also may make it harder for some Arab governments to openly cooperate with the U.S. on some security issues because it is likely to trigger a spasm of anti-American protests and riots,” said Jim Phillips, an expert on the Middle East at The Heritage Foundation.picture6

Yousef Munayyer, a nonresident scholar at the Middle East Institute, fears that moving the embassy would taint the U.S. as a mediator in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“Nonrecognition has been a pillar of U.S. peace process policy,” Munayyer told The Daily Signal in an interview. “If that pillar crumbles, there will be a question of the U.S.’ ability to uphold its credibility in carrying that out. When you combine that with Israel’s recent settlement activity, it’s impossible to see how these things make prospects for a peaceful resolution more likely.”picture7

Schanzer counters that if the Trump administration were to move the U.S. Embassy, it would likely relocate it to West Jerusalem—which has been a part of Israel since its inception and would continue to be under any realistic peace deal. So, Schanzer says, such a move should not limit negotiations of a peace deal even if East Jerusalem is eventually ceded to the Palestinians as their capital.

“There is no reason why you couldn’t still negotiate a peace plan,” Schanzer said. “After all, moving an embassy does not change any of the core issues in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. These are still bilateral issues that have to be resolved.”

Oppression of women in America?

URL of the original posting site: http://legalinsurrection.com/2017/01/oppression-of-women-in-america/

THIS is actual female oppression.

 

I worked in National Security at Breitbart, which made me very grateful to live in America. Every day I covered stories describing actual oppression of females. I bet you anything those females would love to have the cost of their birth control as their only worry.

Those marches made me ashamed of my sex since governments in other countries actually treat its female citizens like second class citizens. I will concentrate on three countries: Saudi Arabia, Iran, and India.

Saudi Arabia

A major American ally. While the country has slowly started making ways out of the stone age, they still live in one. Saudi law prohibits females from leaving the house without a male guardian. The females cannot travel or even conduct any official business without this guardian’s permission. This guardian must also make medical decisions for the female.

Yes, Leftists. In Saudi Arabia, a male MAKES YOUR MEDICAL DECISION. Last time I checked you guys did not need a male guardian to give you permission to even go to a doctor.

Oh, those disgusting vagina hats you wore? Good luck doing that in Saudi Arabia! Over there, females must keep their bodies covered except for hands and eyes. Now, in some areas a female can have her face uncovered. SO RADICAL, RIGHT?!

Did you enjoy socializing with the males who marched alongside you? In Saudi Arabia, sex segregation is a top priority. In fact, if someone catches you talking to a non-relative male, you can receive charges for adultery or prostitution! In June 2010, the courts sentenced four men and eleven men because they had the nerve for socializing at a party. Yeah, they got lashes and time in jail.

Did you drive to the marches? Because females in Saudi Arabia basically cannot drive. There are no laws, but restrictions basically make it impossible for females to enjoy driving a car. The governments force these citizens to receive a local license to drive and the places do not issue them to females. Rural areas allow a little flexibility.

I saw that the march in DC gave the metro a historic day. Yeah, Saudi Arabia does not like for its females to enjoy public transportation because God forbid they mingle with non-related males. THE HORROR.

I could go on, but let’s move to another country.

Iran

Ironically, females worked hard to overthrow the government in 1979. The result gave females an oppressive government with little rights.

Work in the government? You must abide by the Islamic dress code. The previous government banned the hijab, but this new government forced ALL females to wear it. No choice. So you go from one extreme to the other. How lovely. The government banned females from becoming judges. Females must wear the hijab out in public. Want an education? You have to wear the hijab to school.

Females cannot play sports! To make it worse, females cannot even watch the males play these sports.

Guess what happened in 2015? Iran proposed bills to OUTLAW VOLUNTARY STERILIZATION. Yup! LITERALLY NO BIRTH CONTROL. Females cannot even receive information about ways to prevent pregnancy.

Another proposed law propped up gender discrimination:

The Comprehensive Population and Exaltation of Family Bill (Bill 315), which is due to be discussed in parliament next month, would further entrench gender-based discrimination, particularly against women who choose not to or are unable to marry or have children.

The bill instructs all private and public entities to prioritize, in sequence, men with children, married men without children and married women with children when hiring for certain jobs. It also makes divorce more difficult and discourages police and judicial intervention in family disputes opening women up to increased risks of domestic violence.Islam is NOT

India

India remains one of the most dangerous places on this planet for females. In 2011, a poll placed it at number four. Acid attacks help keep India high in the poll because any female from any class can have this attack, mainly used as revenge. Thing is, many of the attacks go unpunished.

The government outlawed child marriage, but no one enforces it! A family can marry off their young daughter to a disgusting old man. The girl better not fight back or else the family will punish her. Then there are those pesky dowry gifts. If a female violates the marriage contract, husbands have been known to kill or punish the female. Her family rarely comes to her aide because she has shamed them.

In rural areas, females often face punishment if males in their house commit a crime:

In August, village leaders in Uttar Pradesh state allegedly ordered the rape of two Dalit sisters to pay for the “sins” of their brother who had eloped with a higher-caste woman. These unofficial village councils, called Khaps, made up of men from dominant castes who often enjoy political patronage, are known to issue edicts restricting women’s mobility and rights, and condemning couples for marrying outside their caste or religion.

India witnessed a massive spike in honor killings:

India has registered an almost 800 percent rise in the number of killings in the name of “honour” reported last year, according to figures presented in parliament.

Indian police registered 251 cases of honour killings in 2015, compared with 28 cases reported in 2014 when the government began counting them separately from murder, according to a statement this week by Junior Home Minister Hansraj G Ahir to India’s parliament.

These silly females actually thought they could marry outside of their class or clan! HOW DARE THEY TRY TO HAVE FREEDOM AND CHOOSE THEIR OWN HUSBAND!!! Yes, their families will kill or harm them if they do something like this.

So there you have it, females in America. Keep whining about your birth control and no abortions on demand. You have NO idea what oppression feels like. You have NO idea what it feels like to be treated like a second class citizen. I suggest you study up on the rest of the world and get some perspective before you lecture about the alleged horrible way females are treated in America.

John Kerry released $221 million to Palestinian Authority just before Trump’s Inauguration

back-stabed1

In defiance of congressional opposition.

We already have seen numerous moves by the former Obama administration to extend its policy preferences into the Trump era, including $500 million sent just days before the inauguration to fund the Paris Climate Agreement.

According to reports, a similar tactic was used to evade congressional opposition to transferring funds to the Palestinian Authority after complaints about its incitement efforts, including paying monthly salaries to convicted terrorist in Israeli jail.

The Associated Press reports:

Officials say the Obama administration in its waning hours defied israels-back-590-liRepublican opposition and quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority that GOP members of Congress had been blocking.

A State Department official and several congressional aides said the outgoing administration formally notified Congress it would spend the money Friday morning. The official said former Secretary of State John Kerry had informed some lawmakers of the move shortly before he left the State Department for the last time Thursday. The aides said written notification dated Jan. 20 was sent to Congress just hours before Donald Trump took the oath of office….

Congress had initially approved the Palestinian funding in budget years 2015 and 2016, but at least two GOP lawmakers — Ed Royce of California, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Kay Granger of Texas, who sits on the House Appropriations Committee — had placed holds on it over moves the Palestinian Authority had taken to seek membership in international organizations. Congressional holds are generally respected by the executive branch but are not legally binding after funds have been allocated.picture1

Trump takes action to move forward with Keystone, Dakota Access pipelines


waving flagAuthored

URL of the original posting site: http://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/315852-trump-orders-keystone-dakota-access-pipeline-applications-to-move

President Trump on Tuesday moved two controversial pipeline projects forward by signing a pair of presidential memos that would allow permitting for the Keystone XL and Dakota Access projects.

In an Oval Office ceremony with several of his aides looking on, Trump said the actions would create new jobs in the United States, and that the pipelines would be built with U.S. steel and U.S. labor.

“We will build our own pipeline, we will build our own pipes, like we used to, in the old days,” Trump said as he held up one of his actions to television cameras brought into the Oval Office to broadcast the event.

The actions are a sharp turn from the Obama administration’s policies, as the former president had rejected the Keystone pipeline and delayed Dakota Access. Tuesday’s actions will not force the approval of either project, and Trump said he wanted to renegotiate terms with the pipelines’ developers. Those terms may include some way for the United States government to get a financial return from Keystone, a possibility he mentioned on the campaign trail.The new president briefly described each action before putting his pen to paper, and then held each action in front of the cameras.Happy Happy Joy Joy

“This is with regard to the construction of the Keystone pipeline, a subject that’s been in dispute, and it’s subject to a renegotiation of terms by us,” Trump said. “We are going to renegotiate some of the terms, and, if they’d like, we’ll see if we can get that pipeline built.

“A lot of jobs, 28,000 jobs. Great construction jobs,” Trump added.

Trump signed a total of five actions on Tuesday, all of which are designed to either move forward with pipeline projects or help U.S. manufacturing.

The memo on Keystone asks developer TransCanada Corp. to submit a new application to build the Canada-to-Texas pipeline across the United States border. It then asks the State Department to review the application within 60 days, at which point Trump would consider whether to give it the final approval under existing policies.
 
The Dakota Access memo asks that the Army Corps of Engineers review and approve the project “in an expedited manner,” including the final easement that developer Energy Transfer Partners needs to build under Lake Oahe in North Dakota.Happy Happy Joy Joy

Besides the actions moving forward with permitting for Keystone and Dakota Access, Trump signed a memo asking the Commerce Department to lay out a plan for all pipelines in the country to use materials produced in the United States.

He also signed actions to expedite permitting for manufacturing projects and to expedite environmental reviews for infrastructure projects.

Trump declined to answer a reporter who asked what he had to say about the months-long, ongoing protests against Dakota Access near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation in North Dakota. The tribe says the pipeline’s construction under Lake Oahe threatens their drinking supplies and cultural sites.

The oil industry hailed the actions as a sharp turnaround for the federal government.

“We are pleased to see the new direction being taken by this administration to recognize the importance of our nation’s energy infrastructure by restoring the rule of law in the permitting process that’s critical to pipelines and other infrastructure projects,” American Petroleum Institute President Jack Gerard said in a statement.

“Critical energy infrastructure projects like the Keystone XL and the Dakota Access Pipelines will help deliver energy to American consumers and businesses safely and efficiently,” he continued.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said it was “about time” that the projects moved forward.Happy Happy Joy Joy

“The unfortunate reality is that these important infrastructure projects were used by special interests to advance their radical anti-energy agenda and were therefore needlessly halted by the last administration—to the detriment of America’s national interest,” he said in a statement.

North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitcamp (D), whose state was the site of massive protests against the Dakota Access pipeline, praised the decision to move forward.

“Building out our country’s energy infrastructure is a key component of achieving an all-of-the-above North American energy strategy and projects that support our energy, economic, and national security,” she said in a statement.

Environmentalists slammed the moves as major threats to clean air, clean water and the climate.

“No amount of ‘alternative facts’ can change the reality that these dirty and dangerous pipelines are a bad deal for clean air, safe drinking water and the communities living along the routes,” said Tiernan Sittenfeld, the top lobbyist at the League of Conservation Voters.words-of-a-leftist-propagandist
