Trump nails it at U.N.: Socialism sucks
Last Chance to Tackle liar-nObamaCare?
by Lewis Morris:  The window of opportunity is rapidly approaching — and closing — for Senate Republicans to pass their latest attempt to repeal replace reform liar-nObamaCare. After Sept. 30, the opportunity for reconciliation goes away, and with it any chance of passing a bill with a simple majority.

          The more cynical among us would say, who cares? We have listened for more than seven years as the GOP made one promise after another to repeal and replace liar-nObamaCare. The electorate handed Republicans both chambers of Congress and then the White House on a silver platter. And yet, they have managed to screw up every attempt to follow through on their promise. Why be concerned about having to face a super majority in the Senate when Republicans can’t even get their own simple majority on the same page?
          However, if we were to engage in some cautious optimism for a moment, this time might be different.
          Senate Republicans Lindsey Graham (SC), Bill Cassidy (LA), Dean Heller (NV), and Ron Johnson (WI) have introduced a modest proposal that could be the beginning of the end of the Un-Affordable Care Act.
          Graham-Cassidy, as it is known, hits a lot of the right buttons in terms of trying to correct the liar-nObamaCare horror show. Individual and employer mandates would be eliminated, as would the medical device tax. It offers block grants to states instead of shoring up their ballooning Medicaid plans with what was essentially bribe money that Barack liar-nObama used to buy state support for liar-nObamaCare in the first place. Health Savings Accounts would be expanded and HSA account holders could spend that pre-tax money on insurance premiums, something that was practically unheard of before.
          One of the most attractive elements of Graham-Cassidy is that it allows states to chart their own course to some extent. Block grants would give states the flexibility to experiment with new health care options or keep the liar-nObamaCare model, if for some unholy reason they should so choose. In a more reasonable world, it would offer an excuse for some Democrats to support the bill.
          Of course, in the bitter, partisan world in which we live, there will be no Democrat support for this bill. They’re too wrapped up in Bernie Sanders’ single-payer proposal. But that’s to be expected. When it comes to health care, Democrats and Republicans really can’t bridge the ideological gap.
          Senate Republicans have a two-vote margin of error to get this bill passed, and Rand Paul and Susan Collins can’t be counted on for support. RINO-John McCain appears to be on board after shooting down the last attempt to get a bill through. RINO-Lisa Murkowski has yet to declare either way. She ran for re-election in 2016 on a promise to repeal liar-nObamaCare, but let down her Alaskan constituents this past summer when she changed her “yes” to a “no” at the last minute.
          Things will get interesting next week as the deadline for passage approaches. The Congressional Budget Office assessment of the bill will be announced, for what that’s worth. The CBO has already stated that its score will not include estimates on the bill’s impact on premiums and the deficit. This makes some wonder: If CBO can’t provide that information, then why bother doing a score at all? Well, the score is better for Democrats to use as a bludgeon on the GOP.
          Indeed, while Democrats publicly balked at hearing this news — as if they were going to honestly consider voting for the bill — in reality they just want numbers to wave in front of the media in order to have a tangible excuse for their “no” votes. Now they will just have to stick their fingers in their ears and mumble incoherently during the floor debate.
          There are a lot of hurdles before Graham-Cassidy will see the light of day. And should it pass the Senate, it will face an even tougher time in the House.
          For the bill to have any chance of reaching President Donald Trump’s desk, it will have to sail through the House without any changes. This is highly unlikely. The House’s liar-nObamaCare repeal billis quite different from Graham-Cassidy. And it barely squeaked by with a 217-213 vote. Any blue-state representatives will have a tough time supporting a bill that will cost their states billions of dollars in subsidies. Rep. Peter King of New York is one such congressman who can’t be counted on to pull in for the big win.
          Funny how all these Republicans were so loud and proud about their opposition to liar-nObamaCare when they didn’t have the power to do anything about it. Where did they all go?  ~The Patriot Post

Hungary set for fresh anti-Soros blitz
{} ~ Hungary is set to launch another state "national consultation" about US financier and philanthropist George Soros, the government said Tuesday, six months before expected general elections... The campaign would be to investigate public views on the "Soros plan", and would likely be launched next month, government spokesman Bence Tuzson told public radio, without giving further details. Last week a top official in the ruling Fidesz party, Lajos Kosa, said that this "Soros plan" includes Europe accepting a million migrants per year and the demolition of Hungary's anti-migrant border fences...
American Islamists Turn to Ankara
U.S. Islamist organizations have turned to the Turkish regime 
for collaboration and support
by Samantha Mandeles and Samuel Westrop
{} ~ For the past few years, the international Muslim Brotherhood has found a welcoming home in Ankara in the face of opposition from Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates... Consequently, U.S. Islamist organizations have also turned to the Turkish regime for collaboration and support. On September 18th, a Washington, D.C.- based organization, the Turkish American National Steering Committee (TASC), hosted an event in New York City with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. "US-based Muslim Brotherhood supporters have a busy week coming up," the Middle East analyst Eric Trager noted. "They're hanging with Erdogan on Monday, protesting Sisi on Wednesday." Organizers of the TASC event included Ahmed Shehata, a lobbyist for the Muslim Brotherhood who has also worked for Islamic Relief and the Muslim American Society -- two prominent Islamist groups designated as terrorist organizations by the United Arab Emirates in 2014...
RINO-John McCain will not vote for 
liar-nObamacare overhaul, imperiling passage
by Susan Ferrechio
{} ~ Sen. RINO-John McCain announced Friday he will not vote for a bill to overhaul liar-nObamacare, imperiling passage before a critical Sept. 30 deadline... The Arizona Republican said the bill authored by Sens. Linsey Graham, R-S.C., and Bill Cassidy, R-La., did not receive sufficient consideration through hearings and markups in the Senate. "I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal," RINO-McCain said in a statement. "I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried."...
Americans Have Dreams Too

by Arnold Ahlert:  “No matter how the law is written, as long as anyone is eligible for amnesty, everybody’s getting amnesty.” —Ann Coulter

          The 2016 election was about many things, but first and foremost among them was the choice about whether America would advance a globalist agenda or a nationalist one. Nothing says globalist more than the effort to legalize the subset of illegal aliens known as Dreamers.
          The term itself is classic propaganda used to create an unwarranted aura of entitlement, while shifting blame away from the Ruling Class who enabled a de facto invasion, and the illegal alien parents who engaged in it, onto the backs of ordinary Americans. Americans who will be labeled racist or xenophobic if they are “heartless” enough to deny children living in “the only country they’ve ever known through no fault of their own” a place at the American table. Even the term “children” is duplicitous. One can be as old as 36 and still qualify as a Dreamer.
          Nevertheless, Americans are a compassionate people, and a substantial majority believe Dreamers should not only be allowed to stay in the United States, but allowed to become citizens if they meet certain requirements.
          What if they don’t meet those requirements? In describing what took place between the original request and the final outcome of the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act, Coulter reveals the machinations of a Ruling Class more than willing to take advantage of that compassion. She explains the original request was for temporary guest worker permits, a.k.a. “agricultural amnesty,” that were “supposed to apply to — at most — 350,000 illegal aliens,” and be available “only to illegals who were currently in the country doing the back-breaking farm work that no American would do.”
          Yet instead of granting guest worker permits, then-Rep. Chuck clown-Schumer decided to grant full amnesty to any illegals who had done farm work for at least 90 days in the previous year. As a result, 350,000 guest workers became 1.5 million illegals granted full amnesty.
          There’s another lesson to be gleaned from this episode, with regard to the aforementioned compassion, as long as certain requirements are met. Coulter further notes that following the passage of the 1986 law, 888,637 legalization applications were deemed fraudulent by the Immigration and Naturalization Service.
          Nonetheless, more than 800,000 of them were approved. Coulter rightly attributes this debacle to a combination of lawyers and activist groups working outside of government, combined with legions of sympathetic bureaucrats working inside the government, all determined to tip the scales in favor of getting as many illegals legalized as possible. Even more revealing is the fact that the federal courts were still being “tied up with dozens of class-action lawsuits brought on behalf of illegal aliens” two decades after the bill was passed. Does anyone think America has gotten less litigious over the last 31 years?
          Thus, what compassionate Americans really need to understand is that Dreamers are the proverbial camel’s nose under the tent. And as soon as any deal regarding Dreamers is reached, the roar of “how can we break up families” will be deafening. After that, one might expect hack judges with an agenda to “discover” that breaking up Dreamer families is also illegal. Judges might even rule that “family reunification” and “chain migration” are essentially interchangeable terms.
          Sen. Tom Cotton wrote the RAISE Act immigration reform bill to limit this chain migration, and he warns that without such reform DACA “could be the largest amnesty in the history of the United States.”
          For those who think such nonsense can’t happen, it should be noted that U.S. District Judge Harry Leinenweber, a Reagan appointee, ruled last week that Justice Department public safety grants cannot be withheld from sanctuary cities that defy federal immigration law. That those grants are supposed to be discretionary, with Justice in full control of deciding who gets them?
          The fact that Americans are routinely told by the Ruling Class and their media enablers that 11 million illegals currently reside in the United States is a great indication that the Rule of Law will be ignored when it suits the globalist agenda.
          Moreover, outright lying is part of the equation. In December 2003, the DHS estimated between eight million and 12 million illegal aliens resided here, and that 700,000 more enter annually and stay. And though America (amazingly) does not keep track of how many foreigners overstay their visas, if just 1% of the 30 million admitted on temporary visas do not leave as they are required to, that adds another 300,000 illegals to the annual influx.
          Take the low end of the DHS estimate, and cut the annual total of border-breachers and visa-violators in half, and one gets a minimum of 15 million illegals living here. Take the high end of both totals and that number skyrockets to 26 million — as in just under 8% of the nation’s entire population.
          Are Americans “compassionate” enough to legalize them all, again under certain conditions? It is worth remembering the 1986 law was all about deal-making. Americans were promised it was about granting amnesty — for the last time — in exchange for a secure border, and crack downs on businesses that hire illegals.
          What we got instead? Amnesty, two broken promises and an exponentially greater number of self-described “undocumented and unafraid” illegals suing to get DACA reinstated, demanding amnesty, and berating a surprised Nancy Pulosi for not accommodating that demand quickly enough.
          Regardless, even some conservatives believe they can obtain trade offs in exchange for legalization. Rush Limbaugh believes leftists would swap it for a border wall. Others think they could get a stricter interpretation of the 14th Amendment, eliminating constitutionally dubious birthright citizenship. Still others cling to the ever-amorphous “border security” trade off, apparently oblivious to the bait-and-switch epitomized by the passage of Secure Fence Act of 2006.
          By the time Congress got finished “amending” it, Americans got a fraction of a fence and no border security.
          PJ Media’s Roger Simon is even more naïve, insisting he would grant Dreamers “anything citizenship entails, for them to work and study here as long as they wish, except for that most precious of all things in a democratic republic — the vote.”
          Apparently Simon is unaware that 10 towns and cities in Maryland’s Prince George and Montgomery Counties already allow illegal aliens to vote in local elections, and beginning in 2018, San Francisco will allow “non-citizens” to cast ballots in local school board elections. This despite the searing irony of knowing many of those who champion granting illegals a citizen’s greatest privilege are the same people who were apoplectic about the “foreign influence” supposedly tipping the 2016 election in Donald Trump’s favor.
          By all means, let’s have a debate about Dreamers — a fully informed one that includes the documented duplicity and the machinations of both parties that have made a complete mockery of both the 1986 law and those who emigrate here legally. A mockery that has fueled the subsequent avalanche of illegals who have come here expecting that “as long as anyone is eligible for amnesty, everybody’s getting amnesty.”
          The Ruling Class has expectations as well, and one suspects genuine compromise isn’t part of the agenda. And while they champion the concerns of illegals, their conspicuous lack of compassion for millions of Americans whose wages have been flat for decades is telling.
          They would be wise to remember Americans have dreams too.  ~The Patriot Post

Trump nails it at U.N.: Socialism sucks
{} ~ While it is clear that desperation is the prime motivator for those on the political left, having dramatically amplified their subversive and incendiary rhetoric in recent months, it must be acknowledged by those who do not share their views that this deportment is manifestly dangerous, represents a clear and present danger to our domestic tranquility, and merits amelioration by methods and measures that, at this time, may have yet to be revealed.

It is my belief that those on the political left have forfeited their right to participation in the political process and free speech particularly pertaining to the overly broad understanding of the latter as it relates to the Constitution because one of their chief objectives is to strip all dissenters of those very rights. I will continue to articulate this as progressives, socialists and radical leftists continue to augment their efforts to corrupt and debase our society and our culture at every conceivable level.

At this point, we are familiar with the agonizingly incessant efforts on the part of the left to characterize President Donald Trump, his surrogates, his supporters and those who favor his wife’s taste in footwear as white supremacists despite there being no evidence whatsoever in support of such claims. We’ve also witnessed the increasing audacity of the noxious individuals and groups who have spoken out against those who hold traditional values, law enforcement, America in general ̶ well, pretty much anything or anyone that represents a divergence from leftist orthodoxy. Further, leftists are becoming less and less inhibited with regard to advocating for violence as a means to their ends.

Recently, a media firestorm ensued when a tweet by Michael Isaacson, an adjunct professor at CUNY’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice and self-proclaimed anti-fascist activist, came to light. Isaacson, an antifa leader who oozes self-satisfied arrogance and looks like a refugee from an ’80s British techno-rock video, posted on Twitter that it was “a privilege for him to teach future dead cops.” Though subsequently disciplined by the college, this twerp was nevertheless granted even more face time on Fox News to spew his poisonous drivel than he’d been given the week before.

Meanwhile on CNN, last Friday, Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill spoke out on the controversy over ESPN anchor Jemele Hill’s comments referencing President Trump as a white supremacist. Dr. Hill another utter boob who has been legitimized via far too much face time on Fox claimed that the White House’s call for her to be fired was an abuse of power and that President Trump is “absolutely” a white supremacist.

Popular culture’s “infinite monkey theorem” holds that given enough time, a chimpanzee typing at random would eventually produce a literary masterpiece. Apparently, the equivalent in Dr. Hill was somehow able to write a passable doctoral dissertation. While Hill may claim that Trump is a white supremacist, what weight does such a statement really have considering that this affirmative action professor, judging by his years of absurd insights and regurgitated socialist canon, obviously possesses only a rudimentary consciousness? It’s like taking to heart the words of a 5-year-old who calls his parent a “big fat poop head” during a tantrum. Such arguments simply have no teeth. Previously, Hill relegated his inane on-camera blather to boilerplate leftist doctrine; however, accusing the president of being a white supremacist far surpasses claims that this accusation was “over the top.”

All of this bleating about white supremacists in our midst would be laughable if not for the potential for significant numbers of news viewers ultimately subscribing to the notion, if for no other reason than leftists are aggressively employing the maxim of their illustrious progenitor, National Socialist propagandist Josef Goebbels “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth”.

While use of the white supremacist label may be born of desperation, there is still a very real danger that it could “become the truth.” We saw something similar occur during the presidency of George W. Bush, when his administration patently refused to defend itself against any of the calumnious slings and arrows of the left. As a result, public opinion swung much further against Republican elected officials than was merited, and this was reflected in the 2008 general election.

“From the Soviet Union to Cuba, Venezuela – wherever socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish, devastation and failure. Those who preach the tenets of these discredited ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who live under these cruel systems. America stands with every person living under a brutal regime.”

– President Donald Trump, Sept. 19

Although it’s no surprise that the establishment press and mouthy radicals are trashing the speech President Trump gave this week at the United Nations, I don’t know if the sympathies he expressed in the above quote could have been put better or more succinctly. The slanderous accusations of racism, homophobia, Islamophobia, misogyny, xenophobia, pauperophobia and other misanthropic leanings are all devices the left is using to foment cultural Balkanization as one gateway toward implementing a socialist state in America.

Inasmuch as it has been established that socialism in all its forms is pernicious and evil, as well as being wholly antithetical to the rule of law and the deeply-rooted traditions and institutions of this nation, the prudent citizen should conclude that efforts to advance this political doctrine must be mitigated with all due alacrit

‘Breaking: Supreme Court Sides With Trump Over Sanctuary Cities In Deportation Case

 The US Supreme Court sided with President Trump over sanctuary cities today in a 5-4 decision.

The court ruled the government has the power to detain people who are facing deportation because of the crimes they committed.

Chief Justice John Roberts joined justices Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh in the majority. reported:

A divided U.S. Supreme Court bolstered the government’s power to detain people who are facing deportation because of crimes they committed, siding with the Trump administration in a clash with implications for so-called sanctuary cities.

The case focused on non-citizen legal residents who serve a criminal sentence, get released and later are arrested by federal immigration agents.

The 5-4 ruling Tuesday said those people aren’t entitled to a bond hearing, and the possibility of re-release, while the Homeland Security Department presses its case for deportation. The ruling reversed a decision by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

In announcing the decision from the bench, Justice Samuel Alito said the lower court had made a “policy judgment” using reasoning that “makes a mockery” of the federal immigration laws…

…Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh joined the majority, but they splintered in their reasoning.

Thomas and Gorsuch didn’t agree with all of Alito’s opinion. They said courts lack power to consider issues involving the detention of non-citizens until those people are facing a deportation order.
