 More NY Times Fake Climate News 
The Leftmedia has one objective: To vilify the Trump administration whenever the opportunity arises. Of course, this opens the door to gross bias and stories that are just flat-out wrong. The coinage for this is the now-ubiquitous term "fake news." The New York Times was caught once again spreading propaganda in its report on the latest Climate Science Special Report (CSSR). The final draft contains the typical anxiety-laden language of how man-made global warming will be significantly detrimental to humanity. But the Times' politicking of the CSSR's plight is even worse.
          Initially, Fox News points out, "The [NYT] story ... said the draft report 'has not yet been made public' but 'a copy of it was obtained by The New York Times.'" Only that erroneous claim didn't fly for very long. And it wasn't whistleblowers who exposed the Times' duplicity.
          Rutgers professor Bob Kopp, who contributed to CSSR, tweeted, "It's not clear what the news is in this story; posted draft is public review draft from Dec, and WH review hasn't yet missed Aug 18 deadline" to officially endorse the CSSR. A few moments later he added, "The Times' leaked draft has been on the Internet Archive since January, during the public comment period." Kopp's colleague Katharine Hayhoe likewise tweeted, "Important to point out that this report was already accessible to anyone who cared to read it during public review & comment time. Few did."
          Translation: Nothing was really leaked at all. The Times' story now contains this correction: "While it was not widely publicized, the report was uploaded by the nonprofit Internet Archive in January; it was not first made public by The New York Times." Oops. What the Times saw was a chance to exploit an obscure report to further its agenda of portraying Donald Trump as a Neanderthal who "could change or suppress the report" without the public's knowledge. It also attempted to paint ecofascists as good Samaritans who had no choice but to "leak" a report to save humanity. Instead, the public now has even more proof that the Times continues to lack journalistic integrity.  ~The Patriot Post

McMaster Against Trump Patriot Base
{rickwells.us} ~ The wagons are circling around HR McMaster, filled with globalists, establishment uniparty operatives, deep state tools, liar-nObama loyalists and holdovers, never-Trumpers, Democrats and special interest, identity politics leeches... They’re protecting him, attempting to come between McMaster and the Trump base of American patriots who want him gone. Why is it that this is the type of support he garners? Why is it that George Soros foot soldiers and UN, global government types rush to offer their support? Why is it that it’s obvious to most observers but the one person who most needs to be aware of it, President Trump, can’t seem to see it? Despite President Trump’s declaration that McMaster is his friend and one of us, he’s not his friend and he’s in no way one of us. He’s one of the enemy, an liar-nObama/Soros tool supported by leftists of every stripe. Yesterday it was Susan Rice in a CNN interview with Wolf Blitzer, defending and expressing her support for McMaster, who had extended her security clearance and arbitrarily declared her innocent in the unmasking of President Trump and other Americans...  http://rickwells.us/obamas-cair-defending-mcmaster-trump-patriot-base/

{gatestoneinstitute.org} ~ The British Prime Minister's June declaration, that when it came to terrorism in the UK, "enough is enough", already looks like little more than rhetoric.... If members of the British government want to move on from rhetoric to action, however, they need to do more than just work out what new things are going wrong in British counter-extremism policy. They will need to identify the mistakes they keep on making, and perhaps try to avoid making them yet again. Bewilderingly, a remarkable opportunity to learn a lesson appears to have been missed yet again...  https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/10790/britain-welcoming-jihadis

Illegal Voting: What Do States and USCIS Have to Hide?
by Kenric Ward
{immigrationreform.com} ~ Allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, have raised concerns about the integrity of our election process, including voting by non-citizens... Examining Virginia’s state records, the nonpartisan Public Interest Legal Foundation and Virginia Voters Alliance uncovered 5,556 non-citizens registered to vote in the state. Of those 5,556 individuals, state Department of Elections records, cross-checked with DMV files, revealed 1,852 had voted 7,474 times over multiple years. If the presidential Commission on Election Integrity follows suit and vets voter records in the other 49 states, the 5,556 non-citizen voters in Virginia could prove to be a drop in the bucket for the rest of the country...  http://immigrationreform.com/2017/08/07/illegal-voting-states-uscis-hide/?utm_source=ET&utm_m...

Sanctuary Cities Betray America,
Americans and Immigrants
by Michael Cutler
{frontpagemag.com} ~ Threats to Americans posed by international terrorists and violent transnational gangs have increased in recent years... In addition, recent congressional hearings have highlighted the extreme levels of violence faced by members of America's ethnic immigrant communities at the hands of gangs, such as MS-13, due to border security and immigration law enforcement failures. Nevertheless, mayors of “Sanctuary Cities” continue to shield illegal aliens -- and the foreign criminals and terrorists among them -- from detection, with some now filing lawsuits against the Trump administration in response to Attorney General Session’s intentions to cut funding to those cities. Those mayors want federal funds but blithely refuse to assist the federal government in enforcing immigration laws that are key elements of national security and public safety...  http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/267534/sanctuary-cities-betray-america-americans-and-michael-cutler

Possible “SPECIAL ENVOY” To N Korea,
Maxine WATERS, Explains What Needs To Be Done
{rickwells.us} ~ We get an insight into the way a “President Maxine Waters” would respond to the current situation in North Korea, a path not too far removed from the one that Hussein liar-nObama pursued... and which Susan Rice and DNI Clapper are currently advocating. She says, “The United States State Department must be staffed up to deal in diplomacy. We cannot afford to be in a war and I want us to be very careful, very alert to what is happening and to avoid war. And so I think we can do this with some diplomacy.” Of course she’s an advocate of more talking regardless of the circumstances...She has no cure on what is happening.  http://rickwells.us/possible-special-envoy-n-korea-maxine-waters-explains-needs/

Sanctuary cities vs. hideouts
 
by Cal Thomas
{
jewishworldreview.com} ~ In biblical times, a sanctuary city was a place where someone who had committed unintentional manslaughter could find refuge from "the avenger of blood."

If the offender left the sanctuary city, he could be set upon by a relative of the dead person and killed. No sanctuary was available to anyone who committed murder with malice aforethought.

Modern sanctuary cities are less reflective of their ancient namesakes and more like the hideouts established by train robbers and cattle rustlers during the days of the Wild West, as the current sanctuary city movement shields men and women who have broken federal law to reach the United States.

Threats by the Trump administration to hold back federal money from cities that harbor illegal immigrants show some promise. In July, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced new immigration compliance requirements for federal grant programs, including mandates that state and local entities must allow federal immigration access to detention facilities and provide 48 hours' notice before authorities release an illegal immigrant wanted by federal authorities. If states comply, they get the grants. If they do not, they get nothing.

Miami-Dade County in Florida and Clark County in Nevada have changed their minds about harboring lawbreakers. The Department of Justice has sent letters to both counties certifying that they are now in compliance with the law and are now cleared for federal grants.

Other sanctuary cities are not so cooperative. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has filed a lawsuit against the Department of Justice for threatening to withhold federal funds earmarked for local law enforcement. Given the shooting gallery Chicago has become, it's difficult to see how more money will improve safety, especially on the city's South Side, where an average weekend of violence often produces more casualties than in Afghanistan.

In Washington, where today's "principled stand" can quickly be forgotten, Democrats have changed their view about an immigration plan they consistently supported for a decade. Democrats in Congress previously favored a policy that would have established a points system for selecting legal immigrants. Now that President Trump favors such a system, based on merit, Democrats suddenly oppose it. For such a U-turn the word "hypocrisy" was invented, but the left doesn't care. They are about votes and winning elections, not actually fixing an immigration system everyone agrees is broken and needs repair.

Under regulations concerning cities of refuge established in the Book of Numbers (35:25) and the code of the Levitical priesthood, once an individual had claimed asylum, he had to be taken from the city to stand trial. If he was found innocent, he was returned under guard to the city in which he had claimed asylum. When the High Priest died, the person could return to his property.

That is a far cry from what modern mayors and governors want for their illegal immigrants. For them there is to be no arrest, no charge and no trial. Some Maryland jurisdictions are talking about adding more localities to those that already allow undocumented immigrants to vote in local elections.

It won't be long before there are demands that they be allowed to vote in federal elections, which appears to be the objective of many Democrats who want and need the votes. They'd likely get them too, once undocumented immigrants become dependent on government programs.

Name a federal law you could get away with breaking. Could you find "sanctuary" away from the government's long arm?

The lawsuit by Chicago's mayor will likely reach the Supreme Court. That is what makes the elevation of Neil Gorsuch to that high bench so critical.

ALERT ALERT

Schumer Refusing To Help Border Kids
Wants To Hurt Trump Instead

The controversy over how underage illegal aliens are handled at the border is heating up — but Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer just rejected a good-faith proposal to fix the problem.

A growing number of people on both sides of the political aisle have expressed concern for border separations, which occur when migrants are caught breaking the law along the border while they have children with them, or when the often exploitative relationship between adults and minors at the border cannot be established.

A vast amount of mis-information and outright lying about the situation has muddied the water, making it tough to understand the situation in its entirety.

Both liberals and conservatives, however, have voiced their support for a better system that results in fewer family separations, and even President Donald Trump has indicated that he is willing to stand with Congress if they change the law.

Shockingly, however, it looks like one of the most well-known faces of the Democratic party isn’t willing to take action, and is instead playing politics in order to attack Trump.

On Tuesday, Schumer openly rejected a Republican proposal to fix the immigrant separation problem at the legislative level, and instead whined about the president.

“There are so many obstacles to legislation and when the president can do it with his own pen, it makes no sense,” Schumer stated, according to The Hill.

“Legislation is not the way to go here when it’s so easy for the president to sign it,” he complained.

Democrats Reject Bill To Keep Families Together At Border – Schumer Says He “Wants To Keep Focus On Trump”

Think about that for a second: The president’s job is to execute existing laws. The legislature’s job is to change or enact new laws when needed.

A senator elected to the legislature for exactly that purpose is now refusing to do his job and pass legislation, while simultaneously blaming the president for enforcing the existing laws, as he is sworn to do.

If there was any doubt that Schumer and the Democrats are playing politics instead of trying to actually help migrant families, the senator made his intentions clear: Obstruct and point fingers at Trump.

“Asked if that meant Democrats would not support a bill backed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to keep immigrant families together while seeking asylum on the U.S. border, Schumer said they want to keep the focus on Trump,” The Hill explained.

Make no mistake: The Democrats dragging their feet and refusing to back legislation already drafted by Republicans will prolong the problems at the border.

“Schumer’s opposition to a legislative fix means there likely won’t be a quick end to the emotional images of immigrant children being separated from their families unless Trump backs down,” The Hill reported.

“Democrats want to keep the pressure on Trump instead of having Congress assume responsibility for the growing crisis,” the news outlet continued.

Again: There’s a solution ready to go, with Republicans including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ready to support it. Yet Democrats like Schumer apparently believe that scoring political points against Trump is more important than helping broken families on the border, even as their own liberal voters demand action.

“Congress alone can fix it,” stated Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Monday.

“I support, and all of the senators of the Republican conference support, a plan that keeps families together,” McConnell agreed.

“We need to fix the problem and it requires a legislative solution,” he said.

Yet Democrats refuse to budge.

This “do nothing but blame Trump” response from the left should prove beyond a doubt that all the tears and hand-wringing from liberals are disingenuous. They’re for show. If it was truly about helping innocent kids at the border, Schumer and his fellow Democrats could act right now.

If their priority was actually to solve the problem and help broken families, scoring points against Trump shouldn’t even be a concern. Even if they believed he was being stubborn on the issue, they could take the high road by doing their jobs and supporting bipartisan legislation.

They don’t, because solving the problem was never their goal. They are playing political games and using devastated children as pawns, while pretending that the president is the monster.

That’s sick… and the American people need to see exactly who is doing the obstruction.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
