GOP House Committee Votes to Block Asylum Abuse Crackdown... More Betrayal by the GOP

GOP leadership allowed an Amendment to pass in he House Appropriations Committee which will bring back Obama's asylum policies, thus fueling our border crisis... This year has seen a 21% increase in illegal alien activity along our Southern Border. The initial decline, in the first months of the Trump Administration, has now been replaced with RECORD NUMBERS of illegal aliens crossing our Southern Border...

Pres. Trump's immigration policies are being overturned by the Courts and his DOJ... which has failed to properly defend his policies... In effect, the DOJ is throwing immigration cases, deliberately losing them... The Deep State is entrenched in the DOJ and Pres. Trump has failed to act to FIRE those promoting such calamity.

We all remember how angry voters were in 2015 when the GOP-controlled House funded Obama's executive amnesty, after making solemn promises that they would not. That feeling of betrayal helped fuel the anti-establishment movement in the 2016 elections. It's happening again... in reverse.  This time,  the GOP leadership is acting on its own to promote open borders...  The House Appropriations Committee, controlled by the GOP,  allowed a vote to add an amendment to the Dept. of Homeland Security appropriations bill which specifically DEFUNDS Attorney General Sessions' plan to reform the asylum process. The Republican Congress is doubling down on their foolishness, compounding their original betrayal as they work to defund Pres. Trump's attempts to enforce our existing immigration law?

Our President is being forced to fight horrible Judicial mandates,  the DOJ swamp rats, and a Republican Party, whose leadership might as well be Democrats... The GOP is openly backing open borders, universal citizenship, the compromise of our National Sovereignty and the Constitutional Republic.  We are being betrayed by the GOP.

Obama-era expansions of US asylum policy led to a seventeen-fold increase in claims of "credible fear" from 2008 to 2016 fueling record numbers of illegal aliens and overloading our Immigration System's ability to properly administer our Immigration law. It has effectively lead to massive numbers of illegals being released into our interior where it can take years and over $75K dollars, per individual, to remove them. Illegal Aliens are routinely demanding asylum and are released into our interior, pending hearings, (By Court Mandate). Most, of course, never show up for their hearing and remain in our Country illegally.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions TIGHTENED grounds for asylum claims in June of this year. However, this common-sense reform is now under attack by the DHS appropriations bill. In addition, Federal Judges continue to interfere with our Immigration law by granting illegal aliens rights that the law and our Constitution deny them.

Our NumbersUSA public policy director Rosemary Jenks called the vote to defund Jeff Sessions attempts to enforce our Immigration laws as written "insane," saying, "this needs to be taken out . . . this [bill] should not go to the floor with this abomination." Please call your Federal Representatives and Senators to ensure this Amendment is defeated... and let the President Know you expect him to veto any Bill that arrives on his desk with such provisions. We must not let this Amendment become law... it will effectively result in an open borders policy.

Let me get back to ya on this...?

Have you been able to research this... It is becoming overtly obvious that the GOP and Democrats both want open borders and universal citizenship... albiet for different reasons.  In the mean time the Citizens of the US are suffering great financial and social distress because of their willful neglect of our immigration law.

Yep some, but I have a issue with the whole Constitutional Legal Forum even in this, majority rule that is, 51 senators can block the wishes of 435 representatives. So they will not respect the Constitution, for a Convention by all members and all the states. And you are telling me they can pass a law against the Immigration Laws without Amendments.

 Something is not correct with the media this is coming from.

"Seize the time, live now, make now always the most precious time. Now will never come again." Jean Luc Picard... Star Trek. 

An interesting thought to ponder and probably the best advice we can take regarding this life... as we struggle against the machinations of the wicked in this world.

Star Trek, come on Mr. Nelson, Star Trek?

LMAO.............:)-

Yeah... Star Trek, after all we are dealing with individuals who are operating in space... pure fiction.  The Constitution no longer has any bearing on legislation or the Courts and their adjudication... Progressives are constantly using subjective reasoning to justify their actions... they don't adhere to the Constitution or laws that don't support their goals.  The Constitution is now a living document subject to the arbitrary logic of Progressives and Activist Judges.

You put up two blogs, and you asked me, Have you been able to research this? Then you state something silly.

 As long as you feel as if a hand full of Politicians have all the power to vote in bills to law, you will be stuck with the two blogs and no where to go.

 To restore the Republic, this word "Republic" Ronald you showed me, so the Republic foundation for passing laws is through a Convention by the States, where everyone has the right to vote.

 Every time Trump states Democracy I just want to puke.

 President Trump, get a grip, America Is A Republic Government, not a Democracy...!!!!!!

In a Republic, the individual member STATES are sovereign...  the Federal Government (central government) is supposed to be the servant of the States.  The Federal Government has been assigned the Constitutional authority and power to operate in (18) specific areas of government, by the States... as outlined in Article 1,  Section 8, Clauses 1-18... and nothing more.

The problem is that the Congress and President have usurped powers not allocated to them by the States in the Constitution. All powers not specifically provided to the Federal Government by the US Constitution are RESERVED TO THE STATES AND THE PEOPLE... See: the 10th Amendment to the US Constitution. 

The Federal Government is no longer restrained by the US Constitution and the State's making up the Republic have abdicated their sovereignty to the Federal Government... in spite of the Constitution and the People's will..  The Federal Government thru the Federal Judiciary and Congress have effectively negated the Republic and the separation of powers as outlined in the US Constitution.  It is now up to the people and the States to restore the Constitutional balance of power... this may take a revolution to accomplish..

Try this on for size Ronald,

In a Republic, We The People Are The Voice, every time its Vote Time, the come running to kiss our back sides with fake news to do a job.

They hide behind Parliamentary Connections, and post fake news about Kicking The Can Down The Road. How to balance a budget against the Federal Reserve. Even Trump knows what and who they are.

 They want to pass bills to law about illegal immigrants, what part of illegal do they not understand?

 All of them will be remembered when it comes time to vote again.

 Then of course we have those that have been appointed into Federal Positions, where they may not even be fired or replaced for ever. They hold that position by Federal Authority, that is Unconstitutional.

 What we need is some good old fashion Jewish Lawyers, to fight the British and the appointed positions all the way to CFR. 

 The true Constitutional Authority and Power, is we the people. we hold the sovereignty rights therein.

 They will respect the base line Immigration Laws, and undo their mess, or they could very well see this civil war  you wrote about.

What we need are some men and women of high moral character to hold office in Congress, the DOJ and FBI... Starting with removing the current AG and working our way down the line... too, include all US Attorneys and their staff.  We must have honest, moral men and women in high office or we will be fighting a losing battle...

Dad ordered us to look into this, Ronald, so until then all I can suggest is help post more blogs because in the summer time all of us are busy with work and getting ready for winter.

LO Tif

I hear you Tiff... God bless you and your family...

ALERT ALERT

TEA PARTY -> Lois Lerner Case Explodes:
IRS Docs Link McCain’s Office To Tea Party Attacks

[CLICK TO VIEW]

Since announcing his brain cancer was terminal, Arizon Sen. John McCain has continued to make headlines, but not due to his medical status. Instead, it has been one controversy after another revolving around him, and now one more had been added to the list.

This one is based in his dislike not for Ted Cruz or Rand Paul, but of the tea party.

McCain has never really endeared himself to conservatives, and he made his feeling public about the tea party movement at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor in 2015, according to a Yahoo report.

“I think also — I probably shouldn’t say this — but some of (the tea party) appeals to the bad angels of our nature rather than the better angels of our nature,” McCain said.

This attitude ties into the latest scandal swirling around McCain.

One of a number of scandals that plagued President Barack Obama and his administration involved the IRS targeting tea party groups after 2010. It seemed that their tax-exempt status requests were denied or delayed due to intense political partisanship in the agency.

In May 2013, The Washington Post reported that the IRS’s exempt-organizations division director Lois Lerner “let slip” the week prior “that low-level IRS staffers had focused extra scrutiny on conservative groups with words such as ‘tea party’ or ‘patriot’ in their names.”

In addition, “internal reviews have shown that Lerner knew about the targeting in 2011 — but neither Congress nor the public knew until (2013).” Despite this, Lerner was never prosecuted and was allowed to retire with her taxpayer-funded pension intact.

This did not change, even after House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, a Texas Republican, and Tax Policy Subcommittee Chairman Peter Roskam, an Illinois Republican, wrote a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In it, they begged him to reopen a probe into the matter, according to Jay Sekulow, chief council for the American Center for Law and Justice, writing in a commentary for Fox News.

When President Donald Trump was sworn into office, some held out hope that the perceived injustices from Obama’s tenure would somehow be made right. However, in September 2017, Trump’s administration had already preemptively declined to pursue criminal charges against Lerner “based on the available evidence,” according to Fox News.

But more has since been uncovered about the scandal. Government watchdog group Judicial Watch has obtained and released “internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.”

Judicial Watch �dd0e

JW President @TomFitton: Much of what you know about the IRS scandal is thanks to JW... Our new docs show the scandal is bipartisan in nature. A McCain staffer suggested Lois Lerner audit all of the 501(c)(4) groups in a way that'd be financially ruinous.

Meeting notes from April 30, 2013, involving Kerner, Lerner, “and other high-ranking IRS officials” were obtained by JW. With the meeting taking place only 10 days before the IRS scandal exploded into the public view, they are particularly incriminating against Kerner and Lerner:

“Henry Kerner asked how to get to the abuse of organizations claiming section 501 (c)(4) but designed to be primarily political. Lois Lerner said the system works, but not in real time.”

“Henry Kerner noted that these organizations don’t disclose donors. Lois Lerner said that if they don’t meet the requirements, we can come in and revoke, but it doesn’t happen timely.”

“Nan Marks said if the concern is that organizations engaging in this activity don’t disclose donors, then the system doesn’t work. Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous. Nikole noted that we have budget constraints.”

“Elise Bean suggested using the list of organizations that made independent expenditures. Lois Lerner said that it is her job to oversee it all, not just political campaign activity.”

Thus far, there is no evidence that McCain knew about or directed Kerner to take such action. It is plausible that Kerner, knowing of McCain’s dislike of the tea party, opted to be a proactive and loyal staffer by urging the IRS to take action against the groups.

But McCain’s personality does little to keep him far removed from the scandal and tongues are wagging with speculation as to his involvement. Regardless, McCain’s frosty relationship with President Donald Trump has not made the Arizona senator many fans among Trump supporters.

New suspicions about him betraying the tea party won’t help matters at all.

OMG

Chelsea Handler Says Fox Doesn’t Work With
Black People, Obviously Doesn’t Watch Network

Humor is supposed to be based on truth. After all, the reason we laugh at a joke or scenario is because it triggers a feeling of recognition about reality, especially if it’s presented in an unexpected way.

It doesn’t look like “comedian” Chelsea Handler has a very firm grasp on truth or reality, however.

After a production error during a Fox News broadcast was called out by users on Twitter, the raunchy and sex-obsessed Handler tried to bash the network … but ended up showing off her ignorance instead.

“Fox News honored Aretha Franklin by using a graphic that contained a photo of Patti LaBelle,” the comedian and television host posted on Twitter Thursday evening.

That part was true enough: Fox admitted that they made a mistake on a background slide during a tribute to the late soul singer, and accidentally showed a faded photo of LaBelle. The main image still showed Franklin, who passed away on Thursday in Detroit.

Broadcast television is complex, which you would think Handler understands after being involved in TV for many years. Honest mistakes happen on every network. But no: In Handler’s alternate reality, the only explanation for the mistake was racism.

“It’s probably hard for anyone who works at Fox News to tell black people apart because they’ve never worked with any,” she declared.

Chelsea Handler  @chelseahandler

Fox News honored Aretha Franklin by using a graphic that contained a photo of Patti LaBelle. It’s probably hard for anyone who works at Fox News to tell black people apart because they’ve never worked with any.

Was she trying to be bitter or funny? It was hard to tell, but either way, that statement shows just how isolated the Hollywood left is from reality.

If she really believes that Fox has “never worked with any” black people, maybe she should try an experiment: Actually watch the channel for a minute.

She would probably tune in to the face of Harris Faulkner, the enthusiastic and Emmy-winning host of “Outnumbered,” which airs every single weekday.

Or, maybe she could get a clue from Deneen Borelli, another well-known face of Fox News for nearly a decade. How about the venerable Juan Williams, co-host of “The Five” and a “Fox News Sunday” regular for over 20 years?

Nah. They apparently don’t count, because Handler would rather live in an alternate reality of ignorance than admit she was the one making racial assumptions.

We’re not finished! Moving on to frequent guest contributors to Fox News, how about Candace Owens? Brandon Tatum? Ben Carson? Larry Elder? All of these smart individuals are familiar faces at Fox, and all are — look closely! — African American.

That’s saying nothing of the behind-the-scenes staff at Fox, a good number of whom are of course black. In fact, it’s completely possible the photo mix-up was accidentally made by a black employee. Handler openly assumed the race of the staff members who made the error, while knowing nothing.

Once again, the left has tipped their hand and revealed just how elitist and out of touch they are.

Handler has likely never turned on Fox News in her life, yet she thinks she’s an expert on it. She eagerly diminishes and waves away the contributions of black Americans to one of the most popular news stations in the nation, while lecturing others about race.

This type of attitude implies that only “liberal approved” black voices count. If they don’t parrot a 43-year-old white comedian’s politics, they’re invisible to her.

That arrogant view, and not an honest editing mistake, is perhaps the real outrage here … and it’s exactly why so many black voters are walking away from the left.
