Ann Coulter: They Don’t Call It ‘the Great Tweet of China’


Commentary by Ann Coulter | 21 Sep 2017

Taking nothing away from the fine people who lost their lives in the recent hurricanes, since the 2005 hurricane season, about 200 Americans have died in hurricanes, plus 82 in Hurricane Harvey and 50 in Hurricane Irma. That’s 332 deaths from hurricanes in the past 12 years.

Even a federal government determined not to tell Americans how many illegal immigrants are committing crimes admits that — at a minimum — there are 350,000 illegal immigrants incarcerated in state prisons and jails, and 3,500 are in for murder. Considering that the average time served for murder in America is six years, that means that, in the last 12 years, hurricanes have killed 332 Americans, and illegal immigrants have killed 7,000 Americans.

Throw in the more than 30,000 Americans who die every year from heroin and fentanyl brought in by Mexicans, and illegal immigration is a problem at least 100 times more urgent than Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and every other hurricane since 2005, combined.

(If we’re including U.S. territories and Hurricane Maria ends up killing another 100 people — current estimates are zero dead — illegal immigration is still 80 times worse than the last 12 years of deadly hurricanes. Of course, if we’re including territories, then we also must note that illegal immigration is especially disastrous for Puerto Ricans living in the U.S., in terms of crime and diminishing job prospects.) 

There is no question but that illegal immigration dwarfs any other issue, not only in dead Americans, but also in welfare expenditures, taxes, lost jobs, police and prison expenditures, declining neighborhoods, ruined schools, overwhelmed hospitals, facial reconstruction surgeries and rape counseling services, to name a few costs.

We thought Trump understood this. We were counting on him to fight for us on the border — not with rallies, not with hats, not with tweets, but by building a wall. And yet, as of Wednesday this week, Trump will have been in office 243 days without having begun the wall. Imagine if Hurricanes Harvey and Irma had hit 243 days ago and all we’d gotten from the president were assurances that FEMA would be coming any day now — just as soon as he got the go-ahead from Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan! (Or worse, from Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.)

The more accurate analogy would be if Trump responded to the recent hurricanes not only by sending zero federal aid, but also by demanding that we dismantle FEMA and the National Hurricane Center. That’s exactly what he’s doing by proposing we respond to the crisis of 40 million illegal aliens in our country with an amnesty that will lure another 40 million across the border.

We hoped we wouldn’t have to spell it out. We thought Trump understood that this was an emergency. We believed he was capable of getting the job done. If he did understand, then 243 days ago, he would have sent the Navy Seabees and Army Corps of Engineers to start building the wall.

For most of the nation’s history, the primary job of the military — of which President Trump is the commander in chief — was building walls and fortresses on our borders. That’s why we have an Army Corps of Engineers. It may not seem like it from recent history, but the job of our military is to protect America’s borders — not Ukraine’s borders, not Jordan’s borders.

This is our one and only chance to get this done, and we’re losing the fight. While Trump dallies, last week California became a sanctuary state. Sixteen-year-old girls are taking lessons to learn to be safe drivers, but when they’re smashed into by drunk-driving illegal aliens, the state won’t tell ICE, and taxpayers will spend $40 million to pay for their defense.

The wall has to get built, and nothing else matters.

Trump will not be able to tweet his way out of not building the wall. He will not be able to change the subject by attacking the media or Crooked Hillary. He will not be able to get away with blaming Republicans in Congress. 

Obviously, it suits the rest of the traitorous GOP — which ferociously opposed him — to pretend that Trump’s election had nothing to do with immigration.

I don’t know about a lot of things. I don’t know where women let you grab them if you’re a rich celebrity. I don’t know how to play a wind instrument. But when everyone else said Trump was a joke, I said, nope, he’s going to be our next president. If anyone is telling Trump that a “virtual wall,” drones, a conga line or a “Don’t Cross!” sign are as good as a wall, he can get his stock tips from them, but not his political advice.

If Trump doesn’t get that wall built, and fast, his base will be done with him and feed him to Robert Mueller.

Philadelphia’s Police Union President calls BlackLivesMatter Activists “a Pack of Rabid Animals”


Reported By Onan Coca | September 5, 2017

 

Oh. Boy.

Philly’s police union president, John McNesby, may have spoken a little too honestly during a recent rally in support of his police officer brethren. While many local residents may forgive his decision to defend the local police force during a period of time that they are seen as controversial, they’ll likely not forgive any over the top rhetoric that could be seen as tainted with racism or bigotry. McNesby’s most recent remarks during a heated public speech, could be seen as crossing the line.

“(They’re) a pack of rabid animals,” McNesby said on Friday during a pro-police rally at the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5 headquarters. “When you go to work each day, you shouldn’t have to worry that a pack of rabid animals will suddenly show up at your home and openly threaten your family. These are not activists, they are racist hate groups determined to instigate violence.” 

“ ”

McNesby’s statement and the rally came in the wake of an ongoing dispute in Philadelphia where a police offcer is under fire after shooting a man as he fled from the officer. While BlackLivesMatter activists want to paint the situation as yet another instance of police brutality, and yet another example of a white officer targeting and shooting a black man… the local P.D. says that’s not at all what happened in this case.

Protests kicked off back in June when Officer Ryan Pownall shot 30-year old Ryan Jones as he fled from the officer. Pownall pulled Jones over for riding an illegal dirt bike on a city street. When the officer patted down the suspect he felt a handgun in the man’s waistband. 

A witness who was in the back of Pownall’s police car said he saw the officer pull his gun and then tell the man not to touch the gun in his waistband. The man then struggled with the officer before pulling his gun from his waistband, but the witness says Jones then dropped the gun, and began to run away. That’s when Pownall fired his gun, hitting the man in the back with two of his shots. Jones later died at a nearby hospital. Police did find a fully-loaded handgun at the scene and have not, as of yet, offered a different version of the story then the witness has described, though the shooting is still under investigation. This is the second time that Officer Pownall has been the center of controversy for shooting a man in the back:

Black Lives Matter, along with others, have been protesting the shooting for weeks. In July, the group marched on the Police Administration Building and City Hall demanding a larger investigation. 

Pownall was called a “racist, bigot pig cop” and Khalif said he has “a murderous spirit” — referring to another shooting that the officer was involved. That 2010 shooting left Carnell Williams-Carney paralyzed when a bullet hit him in the back. The shooting was ruled justified and Williams-Carney lost a federal lawsuit against police.

McNesby’s comments about the protesters being a “pack of rabid animals,” comes less than a week after he called their leader “a punk” who should have been arrested for protesting without a permit. When pressed by the media about calling the BLM leader a “punk,” McNesby said, “I can’t use the words I want. To take it to someone’s house, a police officer’s house, he doesn’t have any respect. He’s a two-bit punk who doesn’t have the respect of decent protesters, if there is any in this city.”

McNesby has gotten riled up by the latest protests because the Black Lives Matter protesters (and their leaders in particular) have been using heated, aggressive, and sometimes violent-sounding rhetoric. For example, last week BLM leaders argued that they knew where Pownall lived before insinuating that they might pay the officer and his family a visit. “We have something in the tank,” the BLM leader said. “There is nothing off the table, including coming back to the police officer’s home.”

Both sides should probably consider modulating their rhetoric, but I don’t expect we’ll see anyone do so.

New Hurricane on Its Way and is Supposed to be WORSE Than Harvey


Posted by GirlsJustWannaHaveGuns.com | on September 2, 2017

After our nation was hit hard by Hurricane Harvey, a new storm has decided to make its way over. Irma is currently a category 3 storm that is maintaining winds of 115 miles per hour, stated the latest National Hurricane Center (NHC) update.

Reports are suggesting it will be a massive category 5 storm; winds potentially reaching 180mph or worse

Right now Irma’s course is moving west or northwest and is currently in the dead center of the Atlantic Ocean. The NHC are saying that this storm is an ‘impressive’ hurricane. With the windspeed nearly doubling in just a day’s time, a drastic anomalous rate, the hurricane’s eyewall convention is intense around a small eye.

According to MSN“Whatever its future path, forecasters said Irma is still expected to be a major hurricane when it nears the Lesser Antilles next week. Some islands could see dangerous wind, storm surge and heavy rain, they said.

If Irma reaches Florida, it could take at least 10 days, a long time to predict tracks with any certainty, said former hurricane center director Rick Knabb, now a hurricane expert at the Weather Channel.”

The Caribbean is projected to get hit by the storm sometime middle of next week. But the path is uncertain as longer term models are varying and suggesting it will hit US, either in Florida or the Gulf of Mexico again.

Trump’s border wall moves forward with prototypes


Reported

The Department of Homeland Security announced Thursday the winners of a contest to build prototypes for sections of President Trump’s proposed border wall. U.S. Customs and Border Protection Acting Deputy Commissioner Ronald D. Vitiello said four companies were chosen to build the prototypes, which are planned to be built in the San Diego area.

Vitiello said the prototypes are a “significant milestone” in Trump’s plan to build a wall on the border with Mexico. The prototypes will be built out of concrete, 18 to 30 feet high and 30 feet long. Vitiello said they would each cost between “just under $400,000 and just under $500,000.” He added that four additional prototypes made of “alternative materials” will be announced next week.

The companies selected for prototype construction were Caddell Construction Co. of Montgomery, Ala., Fisher Sand & Gravel Co. of Tempe, Ariz., Texas Sterling Construction Co. of Houston, Texas, and W.G. Yates & Sons Construction Company of Philadelphia, Mo. An unnamed contractor filed a bid protest, which could detain construction of the prototypes.

According to Vitiello, the concrete portions of the wall will be built 150 feet away from the actual border. The space between an initial see-through barrier on the border and the concrete wall, the “enforcement zone,” will provide a “much safer environment than what we may have planned for before,” said Vitiello.

Trump had initially called for a concrete wall spanning the entire border, but later said he’d consider a see-through option after hearing from Border Patrol officials. Vitiello also said the wall would not span the entire border, but would be constructed “where it’s necessary, not along the whole border.”

In July, Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One that the finished wall could span just 700 to 900 miles.

“It’s a 2,000 mile border, but you don’t need 2,000 miles of wall because you have a lot of natural barriers. You have mountains. You have some rivers that are violent and vicious. You have some areas that are so far away that you don’t really have people crossing. So you don’t need that. But you’ll need anywhere from 700 to 900 miles,” he said.

Vitiello added that prototypes were chosen based on their aesthetics, impenetrability, resistance to tampering, scaling and anti-breach properties .

Depending on the results of prototype testing, the agency could end up using all four concrete and all four alternative materials prototypes in different sections of the wall, or decide to use none.

Trump made construction of a border wall a centerpiece of his campaign, and has threatened to shut down the government unless Congress funds initial construction of the wall in 2018. Democrats successfully blocked wall funding in May’s omnibus spending bill, but $1.6 billion in wall funding was added to homeland security in House appropriations bills that must still clear the Senate.

The prototypes are being built with existing fiscal year 2017 funds, according to Vitiello.
