Illegal Alien Smuggler Falsely Portrayed 
As Victim of “Family Hater” Trump 
{ rickwells.us } ~ An illegal alien who was walking with her three daughters, was arrested on March 3rd in the National City area of San Diego... supposedly while they were on their way to pay the rent. The open-borders left is going crazy because her teenage or adult daughters were squealing like stuck pigs while it was taking place and it was captured on cell phone video. They should have expected it would happen. Perla Morales-Luna wasn’t just an ordinary, garden variety illegal squatter, but a Mexican cartel employee who is described as a fairly high-level operator in an alien smuggling ring. The up is down, right is wrong left is in a frenzy, proclaiming that separating the illegal from her children is evidence that our immigration system is running amok and spreading fear in “communities.” Everybody who goes to jail or prison is separated from their families, do they make that same claim about those criminals? Is our Justice System in all fifty states and around the world running amok?...  https://rickwells.us/illegal-alien-smuggler-trump/

Kris Kobach says Kansas voter registration 
law blocked up to 18,000 noncitizen votes 
{ washingtontimes.com } ~ Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach defended his state’s voter registration law Tuesday in federal court... claiming the measure he championed has prevented between 1,000 and 18,000 noncitizens from casting ballots. During opening statements in a federal lawsuit challenging his authority to implement the requirements, Kobach said one of his experts will testify that the higher end of that range is more likely. He argued the law, which requires people to provide documents such as a birth certificate or passport at motor vehicle offices to register to vote, was much more effective than previous policies that required registrants only to check boxes saying they were over 18 and a U.S. citizen. “Just having to sign something saying you are a U.S. citizen is nothing,” Kobach said...   https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/mar/6/kris-kobach-says-ka...

Tyranny of Shaming
by Nonie Darwish
{ gatestoneinstitute.org } ~ Every day we hear on television, "We need an honest discussion about race in this country"... Many well-meaning Americans, however, may have had enough of this endless, empty and dysfunctional discussion of race. To an outsider, Americans seem obsessed with race; and the discussion always deteriorates to shouting, insulting, blaming, finger-pointing, distorting reality and removing any hope of taking responsibility for oneself. The goal of the discussion always seems to be to try to claim that "I am holier than thou." We immigrants, on the other hand, the minute we land in the US, we feel the political struggle for our vote.  The day I got my citizenship and went out to register to vote, some people in the room told me to register as a Democrat because the Democrats would protect my rights from the racist establishment and give me "stuff." Many of the people who had come with me did register that way, but I found the urging alarming. I grew up under a socialist, totalitarian system under the leadership of President Gamal Abdel Nasser in Egypt -- a nanny state that also gives you "stuff'." What many Americans do not realize is that the free stuff can be too expensive...   https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/12016/tyranny-of-shaming

Sanders Owns Libtard Claiming Absence 
of Leaks Means Trump Acted Impulsively 
{ rickwells.us } ~ Snarky media propagandist Kristen Welker mistakes an absence of leaks from her usual sources for spontaneity... which she then goes on to characterize as recklessness because the leakers were kept out of the loop on the decision to meet with Kim Jong Un. We can expect they’ll be further excluded in the future, perhaps right out the door. Welker asks Sarah Sanders one of her typical condescending questions, “Top officials at the White House and at the Pentagon seemed to be taken by surprise by the announcement. Was this done in a haphazard way?” Sure Welker, everything President Trump does is haphazard by your standards. Find a dictionary and look up getting things done. Maybe you’ll get a clue but probably not. Sanders ignores the derogatory manner in which the question is phrased, replying, “No, not at all. As I said, this has been part of an ongoing campaign that’s been going for over a year and just because some of the individuals that may regularly leak to the press weren’t involved in the conversation doesn’t mean that the appropriate parties that lead those agencies were not in the room and not part of that discussion.”...  https://rickwells.us/sanders-libtard-trump-impulsively/

This Islamist Group Has No Business 
Anywhere Near Our Schoolchildren

{ fixthisnation.com } ~ In a ruling on Tuesday, a federal judge ordered the San Diego Unified School District to turn over all correspondence it has had with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)...
 regarding a bullying initiative aimed at curing area schools of Islamophobia. Responding to a request by the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, the judge found there was enough evidence in the record to suggest that the school district has continued its communications with CAIR after assuring the court that it was severing ties with the controversial organization. The FCDF is hoping that the revelation of such correspondence will compel the court to take further action to keep CAIR’s Islamist propaganda out of San Diego schools. “There are no programs promoting ‘Jewish culture,’ the FCDF told the court in their request for an injunction. “There are no lectures from priests on how to accommodate Catholic students during Lent. And there are no partnerships with Evangelical Christian activists. In short, the San Diego Unified School District has placed their power, prestige, and purse behind a single religion: Islam”... http://www.fixthisnation.com/conservative-breaking-news/this-islami...

The Elimination of Higher Education 

by Michael Swartz:  In less than a week, Americans will be exposed — with practically wall-to-wall coverage at that — to 68 of our institutions of higher learning as they take part in the annual NCAA basketball tournament. Teams that outperform expectations will benefit from an uptick in applications, and although many of the schools participating are already household names, who doesn’t take pride in seeing their alma mater in “The Big Dance?”

            Unfortunately for the high school Class of 2019, whose students are just now beginning to determine where they’ll go to college, there’s a different sort of elimination going on, with much higher stakes. A long-term downturn in enrollment, along with a decline in the number of Americans who believe a college education is worth the money, is beginning to affect many schools’ bottom line. While this won’t immediately affect a state-supported public university or Ivy League schools with their multi-billion dollar endowments, those who’d prefer a smaller campus and more intimate setting may find that many small colleges are the first to fold.
            As an example, based on a Wall Street Journal ranking of more than 1,000 schools accounting for a number of factors, one observer painted a bleak picture for schools near the bottom of the list. “You’re going to see, over the next five years, a real increase in the number of schools in serious trouble,” said Ohio University’s Richard Vedder, who heads the school’s Center for College Affordability and Productivity. “A degree from one of these lower schools doesn’t mean much of anything.” These closings will also expand the so-called “education deserts” that are defined in part as areas outside a convenient radius from four-year colleges.
            Truth be told, though, the “desert” seems to be on campus, and it’s a desert where independent thought and ideological diversity are all but impossible to find. We joke about the “snowflakes” who can’t seem to cope when events don’t turn out as they hope, but the information silo being created by these schools is no laughing matter. When left-wing professors outnumber their right-leaning colleagues by more than 10 to 1 — leaving their unemployable graduates with useless degrees and student loan debt for which taxpayers will ultimately be on the hook — more and more concerned parents and prospective students are looking elsewhere.
            “An increasing percentage of high school graduates are moving directly into job-prep education,” writes Peter Heck at The Resurgent. “Either offered by a business itself, or channeled through a trade school or online academy, these innovative programs give students direct training in the field they want to work in rather than forcing them to fill 90% of their course schedule with classes that don’t pertain to their desired field.”
            Why spend well over $100,000, they reason, when there are good-paying jobs that don’t require a degree or, if a more traditional degree is desired, online institutions that provide a good, basic education to “nontraditional students” for a fraction of the cost?
            Over the last 75 years, college has evolved from a place where only the best and brightest went to pursue higher education to its current marketing as a basic necessity. However, while students, parents and (mostly) taxpayers have “invested” billions to make state-supported public schools a luxurious interim experience for those soon to join the “real world” beyond campus, the model and mode of education has changed. Today, thousands have gained their degrees without ever setting foot on a campus, while still others are making the companies that sponsored and provided their post-high-school education more successful as they apply the skills and knowledge they were taught in these programs.
            While none of these schools and institutes for training will ever make the field of 68 for “March Madness,” they provide the key for stopping the madness of spiraling student debt and useless but politically correct degrees. And have we mentioned that the world needs skilled tradespeople and entrepreneurs that do well without setting foot on a college campus? Yes, we have. But it bears repeating.   ~The Patriot Pos

ALERT ALERT

 Kavanaugh Accuser Donated   To Hillary Clinton  10 Times,  60+ Liberal Groups 

Reportedly attempted to conceal political activity by scrubbing social media accounts

Over the weekend, a name and face were added to the previously anonymous sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which is now threatening to derail his nomination. Those looking to obstruct Kavanaugh’s confirmation certainly saved their best for last, as the prior attempts included pathetic stunts such as:

– Claiming to file perjury charges against Kavanaugh, which only Jeff Sessions would have the ability to file.

– Packing the hearings with hysterical protesters, resulting in hundreds of arrests.

– Threatening female Republicans with extortion.

– Cory Booker comparing himself to Spartacus, the escaped slave who led a revolt against the Romans.

The identity of the accuser was revealed as Christine Blasey Ford, who has agreed testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Ford reportedly made the allegations back in July in a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein, and Feinstein waited until it was close to the vote to confirm Kavanaugh before making the accusations public.

There’s a record of Ford making the accusation in a 2012 therapy session, though Kavanaugh isn’t named in the session notes that Ford gave to the press. Ford alleges that in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh entered a room drunk, pinned her to a bed, and groped her over her clothing. Kavanaugh “categorically denied” the allegations.View image on Twitter

Fin Gomez @finnygo   NEW: Statement from Judge Brett Kavanaugh:

There is a slight discrepancy in the account Ford provided in her letter to Feinstein and in her therapist’s notes, but that could simply be due to an error on her therapists part.

There are however some other questions that need to be answered which call into question Ford’s motives.

As Grabien reported, they include:

1. Why Ford deleted her public social media accounts before revealing herself.

Ford deleted all of her public social media before she came forward, making it difficult to see the advocacy and partisanship she was engaged in the time leading up to her making her allegation public. Of course, Ford may simply value her privacy, but the act of deleting her public postings will inevitably make some wonder what she didn’t want seen.

2. That Ford may have an unrelated grudge against Kavanaugh, as his mother, once a circuit court judge, ruled against Ford’s parents.

In August 1996, Christine Blasey Ford’s parents, Paula and Ralph Blasey, were foreclosed upon. Kavanaugh’s mom, Martha, was then serving as a judge on the Montgomery Country Circuit Court, and she ruled against Christine Ford’s parents.

3. That Ford is a Democrat who donates to left-wing causes, attended the anti-Trump March for Science, and previously signed an open letter challenging Trump’s border policy.

Ford is a political activist who has made dozens of donations to left-wing causes. According to OpenSecrets, she has made more than 60 donations to liberal causes, with almost four dozen to the pro-abortion group, Emily’s List, alone. Ford also donated to the DNC, Hillary Clinton (more than 10 times), Bernie Sanders, and the progressive organizing group ActBlue.

Ford likewise attended the anti-Trump March for Science, where she wore a hat knitted like a human brain, but inspired by the feminist “pussy hats” worn at the Women’s Marches. Ford also added her name to an open letter from health professionals who argued the U.S. border policy resulting in temporary separation of some families was harmful to children’s development.

There’s no statute of limitations on sexual assault in Maryland, where she claims that the assault happened. Rather than go to the police, Ford went to Dianne Feinstein. If her accusations are true, she should immediately file a police report against Kavanaugh and take him to trial. If she doesn’t, perhaps that’s because she knows the consequences of filing a false police report.
