Tantrum-Throwing dummycrats-Dems Say
Supreme Court is Now “Illegitimate”
by Andrew
{conservativefreepress.com} ~ dummycrats-Democrats have been saying for two years that President Trump is an “illegitimate” president for one crazy reason or another... and now they’re ready to throw that label at the nation’s high court. Angry over their failed attempt to railroad Brett Kavanaugh, dummycrats-Democrats and other left-wing agitators are telling anyone who will listen that the Supreme Court’s legitimacy is now in question. “Confirming Brett Kavanaugh in the face of credible allegations of sexual assault that were not thoroughly investigated, and his belligerent, partisan performance in last Thursday’s hearing undermines the legitimacy of the Supreme Court,” said Sen. Dianne Fein-stein, the woman largely responsible for the circus that these hearings turned into. “The damage done today will be enduring — to the United States Supreme Court and to our country,” said Sen. scumbag-Richard Blumenthal. Ahead of the vote, NY Times columnist Paul Krugman said: “Kavanaugh may yet be confirmed, but this will make the court fundamentally illegitimate.” At Slate, Mark Joseph Stern wrote: “As soon as Kavanaugh takes the oath, he will plunge the Supreme Court into a legitimacy crisis that could weaken its power over the long term. This crisis will become particularly acute if dummycrats-Democrats retake Congress and the presidency but find their reforms stymied by a reactionary judiciary.”...

Rumors Stoke Islamist Attacks on Egyptian Copts
by Hany Ghoraba
{investigativeproject.org} ~ Islamists and jihadists in Egypt have targeted the Egyptian Coptic minorities for decades with bombings and mob attacks on Coptic churches, businesses and homes... Many are sanctioned by fatwas from radical clerics, Salafist preachers and Muslim Brotherhood muftis. The latest attack took place Sept. 1 in Dimshaw, a village in southern Egypt's Minya governorate. A mob of nearly 1,000 Islamists and Muslim radicals attacked Christians who gathered in a home to pray. Several homes reportedly were looted and set on fire. The mob claimed that the Christians didn't have a license, and a rumor spread that they are on the verge of building a new church. A Minya court released 21 of the 25 people arrested in the attack. Copts often take a passive approach to such crises. "Copts, by nature and by belief, are by far more accepting of death, fate, and all tragedies that befall them," said Egyptian writer and political analyst Azza Sedky. "When one of them dies, they believe he or she has gone to a 'better place.' Acceptance is key." The 1956 Suez crisis generated xenophobia toward foreigners, driving many out of Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood stepped up activities around that time and "began to play its tricks and the antagonism against religious minorities intensified, especially in rural areas," she said...  https://www.investigativeproject.org/7647/rumors-stoke-islamist-att...

UN, Not Americans, Responsible For
100,000 Guns On Black Market
by Tom Knighton
{bearingarms.com} ~ A number of people seem to look at the United Nations as a good thing. In truth, it probably could have been something good... but instead what we see is a group that gives third-world hellholes the same standing as the United States and a platform that allows them to lecture us on all the ways we suck. It’s pretty rich coming from countries that have difficulty consistently feeding their people, but there you have it. One area we get lectured to on is gun control. After all, the “civilized” nations all strictly restrict guns and we don’t even come close to what they do. Clearly, the hundreds of thousands of guns on the black market is because we refuse to embrace civilization and entertain a more enlightened position on firearms. Only, well, the guns that are on the black market aren’t really our fault.Gun control proponent Allison Pytlak explains that a benefit of the ‘new’ ATT would be, “the closing of legal loopholes to prevent diversion of arms to illicit markets … stopping diversion should result in fewer arms finding their ways to militias, criminals, and terrorists.” Though Pytlak argues this nicely, the fact that U.S. citizens privately hold approximately 320 million firearms, that rarely enter the Black Market arena, seems to eludes the thought process. Behind all the pompous critiques, was the knowledge that they could not control their weapons, let alone ours. UN peacekeepers themselves are/were fueling the local Black Markets with firearms diverted from UN stockpiles. This is an important point that is rarely brought to light. Let’s be perfectly honest. The UN is nothing more than a dumpster fire. The UN’s purpose was to prevent another world war, but since then, it has tried to govern the entire planet. If it weren’t for the obstinance of countries like the United States, it probably would...

Alaska GOP May Force rino-Murkowski
Out For Opposing Kavanaugh
by Rusty
{thepoliticalinsider.com} ~ The Alaska Republican Party will reportedly weigh possible options to reprimand Senator rino-Lisa Murkowski... following her “nay” vote on the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Party Chairman Tuckerman Babcock said the state’s GOP committee could take action ranging from a statement of reprimand, to pressuring her not to seek reelection, to encouraging other officials to seek a replacement. According to Babcock, the state GOP has withdrawn support for Republicans who have sided with the dummycrats-Democrat Party in the past. rino-Murkowski was the only Republican senator to vote against confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. When the rest of her party – including Susan Collins and rino-Jeff Flake – recognized the dummycrats-Democrat smear campaign for what it was, rino-Murkowski crumbled to the pressure and surrendered. The Alaska senator has been asked to hand over any information she may have that could help the party better understand her actions...  https://thepoliticalinsider.com/alaska-gop-force-murkowski-kavanaug...

California Admits DMV Error Added Noncitizens to Voter Rolls
by Will Racke
{dailysignal.com} ~ An error at California’s Department of Motor Vehicles caused more than a thousand people, including some who were not U.S. citizens, to be incorrectly registered to vote... state officials said Monday. The DMV admitted that a “processing error” at agency field offices resulted in as many as 1,500 people being added to voter rolls between April 23 and Sept. 25.The widespread glitch was discovered after Randall Marquis, a Canadian citizen and legal U.S. resident living in California, notified the DMV he had received a piece of mail from the agency saying he was registered to vote. In response to Marquis’ alert, the agency ordered an internal audit and discovered hundreds of similar cases. “This error occurred when DMV technicians processed customer requests at field offices to change voter eligibility responses on driver license applications,” the DMV wrote in a letter to California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. “Due to the order in which the change was processed, the customer’s initial responses were retained instead of the correct and revised responses.” The DMV said the improper registrations were made “through no fault of the customer.” None of the people who were registered to vote due to the error were illegal immigrants, the agency added. “We have worked quickly with the Department of Technology to correct these errors and have also updated the programming and added additional safeguards to improve this process,” DMV Director Jean Shiomoto said in a statement Monday, according to ABC News...

The Real Boost the Marine Corps Needs
by Harold Hutchison:  The United States Marine Corps has always been about being “a few good men.” That said, the Marines could use some help.

             While the classic images of Marines are those storming beaches somewhere in the Pacific, fighting house-to-house in Fallujah, or making an incredible retreat at Chosing, there is more to the Marines than just that. They do a little bit of everything.
               One of the most important, yet lesser-known, areas they are involved in is aerial combat. Not only do Marine Corps aviators help transport Marines, they are also capable of just about every aerial combat mission. Unfortunately, Marine aviation has taken some big hits since the end of the Cold War.
               In 2016, not that long ago, the Marines had to go to the boneyard to get enough F/A-18 Hornets to maintain operational readiness. These were the baseline F/A-18Cs, because the Marines never received the more capable F/A-18E/F Super Hornets. Just bringing those online not only would have made the Marines more capable but simplified logistics on Navy carriers and given the Marines an insurance policy for the F-35’s teething problems.
               Here is one other startling tidbit about the F-35B that the Marines plan to use as their only multi-role fighter: It cannot haul 2,000-pound bombs. Not the GPS-guided Joint Direct Attack Munitions, not the Paveway laser-guided bombs, not even dumb bombs. Even the old Hornets could haul 2,000-pound bombs.
               The Marines have also had to stand down a number of squadrons. Keeping the Super Hornet line open could enable them to have more squadrons on standby and maintain the ability to drop 2,000-pound bombs on the enemy. But the fixed-wing fighters aren’t the only area where Marine aviation has taken a hit.
               Currently, each Marine tilt-rotor squadron has a dozen MV-22 Ospreys, which replaced the aging CH-46 Sea Knight helicopters. That’s all well and good, but the squadrons had, at one point had up to 18 CH-46 helicopters (the number was reduced to 12 in the 1980s, according to the Thirteenth Edition of the Naval Institute Guide to the Ships and Aircraft of the United States Navy). Restoring those squadrons to 18 aircraft each would make the Marine Expeditionary Units far more capable.
               Even the Marines in the Ground Combat Element have taken hits. In 2011, the scumbag/liar-nObama administration canceled the Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle, which would have greatly helped the Marines when it came to taking Marines onto hostile beaches. Today, the new Amphibious Combat Vehicle may not enter service until 2022 and would be far less capable than the EFV.
               Marines also will be in need of ground-based air defense — another capability that has greatly atrophied since the end of the Cold War. Marines used to rely on MIM-23 HAWK surface-to-air missiles. The good news is that ground-launched versions of the AIM-120 AMRAAM are available and can be launched from the High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle. It’s a cheap and easy fix to give the Marines an urgently needed boost.
               The Marine Corp has always managed to avoid the worst of the budget axe, but since the end of the Cold War, they have taken hits. The Marines have always been elite, but “the few” need to be not-so-few, and they need the best gear they can get.

ALERT ALERT

CRIME!! -> ICE Deports Quarter Of A Million Illegal Aliens, 6K Gang Members In 2018

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency in Fiscal Year 2018 deported more than 256,000 illegal aliens out of the United States, including about 6,000 suspected or known gang members.

Between September 2017 and October 2018, ICE agents deported 95,360 illegal aliens living throughout the interior of the U.S. and 160,725 illegal aliens who were caught by Border Patrol crossing into the country.

Most significant are the number of deportations ICE agents conducted for the more than 95,000 illegal aliens who were living throughout the interior of the country. There are anywhere from 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living across the U.S. at any given time, straining the capacity of ICE.

This year, though, ICE increased deportations of illegal aliens living in the U.S. by more than 45 percent since President Obama’s last year in office, when only about 65,000 illegal aliens living in the U.S. were deported.

The number of ICE deportations of convicted criminal illegal aliens and those with pending criminal charges has increased about 11.5 percent since Fiscal Year 2016, with more than 168,000 convicted criminal and suspected criminal illegal aliens being deported out of the U.S. this year.

In a tremendous increase, ICE hiked the number of illegal alien gang members deported by more than 185 percent compared to Fiscal Year 2016. This year, nearly 6,000 illegal aliens who are known or suspected gang members were deported out of the U.S. by ICE. Compare that to the only about 2,000 illegal alien gang members were deported in Obama’s last year in office.

Likewise, ICE deported a steady level of suspected or known illegal alien terrorists, totaling about 42 deportations for Fiscal Year 2018, a slight decrease from the 45 who were deported last year.

The ICE data also reveals the effectiveness of Trump’s visa sanctions on foreign countries refusing to take back their nationals. Throughout this year, the Trump administration placed visa restrictions on Cambodia, Cuba, Eritrea, Guinea, and Sierra Leone, as all those nations would not take their nationals back from the U.S.

This Fiscal Year 2018, after all five nations were hit with visa sanctions, the number of nationals deported to the foreign countries skyrocketed with a 279 percent increase in deportations from the U.S. to Cambodia, a 189 percent increase in deportations to Cuba, and a nearly 150 percent increase in deportations to Guinea.

As Breitbart News most recently reported, illegal immigration to the U.S. has continuously risen over the last three months to record levels. Last month, illegal immigration at the United States-Mexico border soared to levels that the country has not seen since Fiscal Year 2014, when more than 51,500 illegal aliens tried to cross the border in April 2015.

Meanwhile, illegal immigration costs American taxpayers about $116 billion every year, and the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens — granted birthright citizenship — cost taxpayers about $2.4 billion annually. There are about 300,000 “anchor babies,” the common name for U.S.-born child of illegal aliens, born every year which exceeds U.S. births in 48 states.
