Lindsey Graham prepping legislative 
package to change asylum laws
by Melissa Quinn
washingtonexaminer.com } ~ Sen. Lindsey Graham plans to introduce a legislative package that would change the country’s asylum laws in an effort to stem the influx of migrants crossing the southern border... The South Carolina Republican revealed his immigration plan during an interview Sunday. “I'm tired of talking about this problem. I want to fix it. I think all Americans should want both parties to fix this problem,” Graham told Fox News. “The president has correctly identified the crisis at the border, now it's time to have a legislative solution. You need to change our laws for this to stop, so I'll be introducing a package — and hopefully with Democratic support — that will change our asylum laws. Ninety percent of the people apply for asylum never make it, so the standard needs to change.”Graham said he plans to put together the legislative package once Congress returns to Washington, D.C., from recess on April 29. The Senate Judiciary Committee, which Graham helms, will then mark up the measure, he said. “Doing what we’re doing is not working,” Graham said. “The crisis has to come to an end and the only way to bring it to an end is to change our laws.” In addition to altering the asylum laws, Graham raised issues with the 1997 Flores settlement, which prohibits the federal government from holding children in family detention centers for more than 20 days...

Bill Barr Knows Something – What He Said 
Was a ‘Stay Tuned America’ Statement
by Jim Hoft  
{thegatewaypundit.com} ~ On Thursday night former Special Counsel Ken Starr joined Laura Ingraham to discuss the latest comments by Attorney General Bill Barr that the Trump Campaign was spied on during the 2016 campaign.... Starr, who is no rabid Trump supporter, told Laura that America better stay tuned because Bill Barr knows something. Ken Starr: Here is my take, Bill Barr knows something Laura. He knows something. He says, I have a concern and I believe I have a basis for that concern. Anyone who knows Bill Barr knows he doesn’t just say things. He thinks about them. He’s careful with what he says. And I think if Bill Barr says I think there is a basis for my concern, he doesn’t say what it is, that is a “stay tuned America.”

‘The USA has the absolute legal right’ to send immigrants to sanctuary cities. It’s real, 
he’s already planning with DHS, ICE
by Vivek Saxena
bizpacreview.com } ~ During an appearance Saturday on Fox News’ “Justice with Jeanine,” White House principal deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley confirmed that the White House has begun working... with the Department of Homeland Security on a plan to transport illegal aliens to sanctuary cities. He made the remarks two days after the mainstream media revealed that President Donald Trump’s administration intends to alleviate Democrat-induced crowding at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s detention facilities by releasing detained illegals in sanctuary cities.  Though the report provoked massive backlash and rage from both congressional Democrats and even the mayors of sanctuary cities, Gidley noted to Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro that the administration is simply giving them exactly what they’ve been asking for since day one. “The president said listen, there are sanctuary cities out there where Democrats have said we welcome any and all whether they criminals, whether they are here illegally, seeking asylum, regardless,” the White House principal deputy press secretary noted. “Anybody who disagrees with us is racist. So the president said fine, I’ve got a great idea. We’d love to work with you guys to figure out exactly the best way to transport these people were here illegally and unlawfully and into your communities and your districts and your states.” He added that the Trump administration is merely giving these cities “what they want.” “They have said they wanted all of these illegal aliens into their communities,” Gidley noted. “We’re working with DHS, we’re working with ICE, to try and make sure that happens because after all, it’s what they want. “They should not say, ‘This is retribution politically.” They should say, ‘This is an olive branch.'”...

commie-AOC Caught In Major Lie About Israel, 
She Thought Nobody Would Notice
by John Salvatore  
dailywire.com } ~ In an interview this week, socialist Rep. commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) lied about remarks she made in July 2018 during an interview on PBS's "Firing Line With Margaret Hoover,"... falsely claiming that the video clip of her saying that Israel was occupying Palestine was "doctored."  commie-Ocasio-Cortez made the false claim during an interview with The Intercept, saying that the video "got doctored and then the doctored video was the one that ended up on Fox News and then like everyone just sees the doctored version instead of the actual exchange." commie-Ocasio-Cortez's comments garnered national attention after The Daily Wire reported on her anti-Israel remarks on July 15. The report contained the following video, which was viewed millions of times: Within two days, commie-Ocasio-Cortez's comments were picked up by nearly every major news publication including The Drudge Report, Fox News, CNN, Newsweek, The Free Beacon, The Daily Caller, National Review, and many others. Nine days later, on July 24, CRTV's Allie Beth Stuckey released a hilarious and blatantly obvious parody video from commie-Ocasio-Cortez's interview on Firing Line. Stuckey's parody video did not even contain the portion of the interview where commie-Ocasio-Cortez made her remarks about Israel and Palestine...

It's About Time

President Trump has designated Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) a foreign terrorist organization (FTO). It’s about time. Other administrations might have done it, but didn’t.

In a statement, the president said, “The Iranian regime is the leading state sponsor of terror. It exports dangerous missiles, fuels conflict across the Middle East, and supports terrorist proxies.”

This is not exactly breaking news, but Trump has applied the right label to behavior that defines terrorism. It is the first time, says the White House, that the United States has designated part of another government an FTO.

The administration’s goal is to “…increase the financial pressure and isolation of Iran and deprive the regime of resources it uses for its terrorist activities.” One wishes the U.S. could recover the $400 million sent to Iran by the Obama administration in what appeared to be ransom for four Americans held hostage by the regime. It was money that likely is being used to subsidize Iran’s worldwide terrorist activities.

The Trump administration also charges Iran with operating what appear to be legitimate businesses, but are actually fronts for accomplishing Iran’s terrorist goals. Something they might have picked up from the Mafia.

Memories can fade quickly, so a recounting of just some of Iran’s terrorist activities over the years might help focus the mind and add justification for the administration’s action.

When the Shah of Iran was forced out in 1979 with the assistance of the Carter administration, the religious leadership that replaced him established the IRGC, ostensibly to promote government social policy. It quickly became an organization through which funding was provided to entities designated by several countries as terrorist groups. The IRGC has roughly 150,000 military personnel, including ground, aerospace and naval forces, and along with the Quds Force, one of its warfare units, became a major trainer of Islamic terrorists.

The U.S. government has blamed groups supported by Iran for the deaths of American soldiers in Afghanistan and Syria and during the Iraq war. These groups are also a constant threat to Israel, which several Iranian religious leaders have vowed to one day eliminate.

Hezbollah has reportedly been a chief beneficiary of Iranian support. That terrorist organization, which Iran claims is an anti-Israel “liberation” group, has gallons of blood on its hands, from incidents too numerous to recount in full detail.

Here are just some examples gleaned from a simple Google search: A van filled with explosives was blown up in front of the U.S. Embassy in Beirut in 1983, killing 63 people, including the suicide bomber and 17 Americans. That same year, barracks housing U.S. Marines and French peacekeepers was bombed, killing 241 Americans and 58 French. An American federal judge ruled that Hezbollah was responsible for the attack on orders from the Iranian government.

The hijacking of TWA flight 847 in 1985 during which 39 Americans were held hostage for weeks and a U.S. Navy sailor was murdered. A Jewish community center in Argentina in 1994 was bombed, killing 85 people. Hezbollah admitted responsibility. The Khobar Towers, a U.S. Air Force housing complex in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, was bombed in 1996, killing 19 U.S. service members. In 2006, a federal judge ruled Iran was responsible.

Why did it take other administrations so long to respond to the obvious? It should be the policy of the U.S. government to support Iranians who have shown at the ballot box and in street demonstrations, brutally suppressed by the regime, that their wishes for an Iran free of fundamentalist religious dictators must be realized for the sake of Iranians and for the stability of the region.

President Trump has taken an important first step in designating the IRGC a foreign terrorist organization. He should be joined by other nations, which also have a strong interest in deterring terrorism within their borders. The ultimate goal for every nation that faces threats from the Iranian regime should be the removal of its current fanatical leaders.

ALERT ALERT

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
