Next Executive Order: Restrict Welfare Benefits For Immigrants?

The Washington Post is publicizing alleged drafts of new Presidential Executive Orders that will restrict welfare benefits for immigrants for at least five years after their entry into the US, deny entry for any immigrant who is at risk of becoming a public charge and to identify and remove immigrants who have become public charges. There are also recommendation to strengthen immigrant worker visa regulations to protect American jobs.

Forty-Seven Years Before The Berkeley Riots

I guess I started my law enforcement career during the Kent State riots in May, 1970. I was a junior and volunteered as a student marshal walking the Syracuse University campus at night. Riots? After the first night of arsons and vandalism it was a joke.

Students Occupy the Syracuse University Administration Bldg. - May 1970

The male students took their sleeping bags and girlfriends to the quad and screwed all night. There had to be hundred of them all over the quad. The sleeping bags reflected their activity as they slowly crept along due to their frenzied motions inside the bags. The student marshals called them “inchworms”. Posers and tools made speeches and the student body took a holiday.

Rich kids made a big fuss to get out of taking final exams and liberal professors agreed to pass/fail grading for all protestors. Students staged "die-ins" and laid down in front of classroom entrances.  I took great pleasure in stepping on them as I made my way to class. I was now paying for my education out of my own pocket and I was damned if these idiots were going to prevent me from getting my money's worth.

Bill Clinton’s general counsel when he ran for president, David Ifshin, was a classmate of mine running around the campus in a red bandanna and Che t-shirt. What a tool. That same year he was in Hanoi cavorting with communists accompanied by another traitor, Jane *spit* Fonda.  The only truly noble thing he ever did was die at an early age from cancer.

My dad lost his job in late 1969 and couldn’t help me financially any more. I was already working at several part time jobs so in July of 1970 (2 months after the riots) I got a job with the university campus security and worked full time as a patrol officer on midnights and went to school full time during the day. As a university employee I received six remitted credit hours per semester and that's how I managed to stay in school. In August of 1974 I joined the Syracuse PD. I got to know the supervisor in charge of the police intelligence section who was the brother of one of the officers I worked with on campus. I asked him about the riots.

The Intel supervisor, Sgt. Mannie Leone (now deceased), told me the Syracuse University student riots were due to the efforts of outside agitators. The PD had undercover cops infiltrate the meetings and saw what was happening. I worked with these cops after I graduated from the academy (top of my class) and have pix of them when they were undercover. You’d never know by looking at them - wild looking guys.

 Lynching Nixon at the New House School of Journalism

That’s one of the reasons why the Chief at the time (Tom Sardino) would not send riot police on campus, also the SU admin was real nervous about having a bunch of cops beat the crap out of these rich, snotty kids. We now know that these outsiders who raised hell all over the country were mainly sponsored by the KGB as discovered when the USSR broke apart 21 years later. The SU students just went along for the ride as did many students throughout many campuses.  Add to this mix of malcontents thousands of grad students who in 1969 lost their perpetual draft deferments
The most sweeping change in the new statute -- elimination of mass graduate school deferments -- will not go into effect until next year. In the interim, the National Security Council will advise the President whether or not any non-medical-dental deferments should be given. If more deferments are granted, they are expected to be restricted to scientists or engineers.
Many students planned to stay in college forever to avoid the draft. Throw in some KGB funding and you had a perfect storm of assholes spoiling to raise hell.

Now today, instead of the KGB, it is Soros and the globalists stirring the pot and providing the funds.
Some things never change.

In The News

They've looked and looked and looked but, alas, no souls. Just shells filled with greed, ambition and unfulfilled lust. Think of it like an ice cream cone dipped into a cesspool. Yum.
Soul-Searching at Clinton Foundation in Trump Era

Last summer, former President Bill Clinton pledged that if Hillary Clinton won the presidential election, he would avoid conflicts by stepping aside from many of his duties at the Clinton Foundation, restricting foreign donations to the charity and spinning off certain programs.

Now, nearly three months after Mrs. Clinton’s defeat, the foundation is still grappling with its place in the era of President Trump.

Let Them Eat Cake
Marie Antoinette's advice aside, thank God Europe hasn't run out of Muslims. If things really get desperate, Europe can always rely on Soylent Achmed.
European consumers have been plunged into crisis by a vegetable shortage caused by severe weather.

Shops across Europe – and particularly in the UK – have seen the shelves stripped of green produce like lettuce, broccoli and spinach.

Courgettes (zucchinis, if you’re American), aubergines (eggplant) and peppers have also been badly affected.

The problems stem from a blast of cold weather which has overtaken large parts of southern Europe.
A blast of military age Muslims hasn't worked out so well either.

Trump Chokes Iran's Chicken
Chinese proverbs have a way of cutting to the gist of the matter. Or making people say "WTH?" and running to the upstairs bedrooms to see what their sons are doing.
Critics of President Trump’s temporary travel ban on seven Muslim nations should remember the Chinese proverb, “Kill the chicken and let the monkey watch.”

The much-criticized measure was a warning to the governments of the Gulf States, Turkey and Pakistan, who walk a fine line between support for Western counter-terrorism efforts and concessions to jihadists. It has had precisely the result that the White House intended, as a Dubai security official indicated on January 29. As Reuters’ reported:

Dubai’s deputy chief of police and public security, Lieutenant General Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, has praised US President Donald Trump’s recent decision to temporarily ban citizens from seven Muslim-majority states, saying in a series of tweets it was a ‘preventive measure’ to safeguard the country.
Lt. Gen Tamim is specifically referring to Iran's client states.
Kudos to President Trump for his brave decisions… they (these people) can only be dealt with through preventive measures,” he said in an Arabic-language tweet dated January 29 on his official Twitter account.

“Trump banned the citizens of countries in the embrace of Iran and prevented the Iranians from entering… sound decision,” he added in another tweet…. “It is not necessary for America to host backward people, it has received enough before,” he said in one tweet. “What would a Yemini, Iraqi, Iranian, Somali or a Syrian do in America? They have destroyed their countries, they should not destroy America.”
Trump realizes the need to keep mad Mohammedans where they can do the least damage; in their own shitholes countries which they have already trashed. Churchill's description of the Hun can be applied to Muslims with a minor change; "The Mohammedans are either at your feet or at your throat or at each others' throats." 

After Choking Iran's Chicken, Trump Intends To Cook It
Trump apparently is not joking. He really hates Iran's chicken.
Trump tweet accusing the country of 'playing with fire' with missile test
  • President Trump raised the stakes with Iran Friday morning by tweeting that the country is 'playing with fire'
  • Treasury then sanctioned 13 individuals and 12 businesses Friday that have ties to Tehran
  • On Thursday Trump was asked about military action against Iran as he held White House meeting and said: 'Nothing is off the table.'
  • National Security Advisor Gen. Michael Flynn told reporters Wednesday that the U.S. is 'officially putting Iran on notice' after it tested a ballistic missile
  • Iran is the subject of a United Nations Security Council resolution prohibiting tests of ballistic missiles
  • Now Islamic republic is also reported to have test-launched a cruise missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead
We'll see what happens in the next few months. Iran may have to get itself a new chicken.

Under Trump The IRS Switches Targets

Obama weaponized the IRS against Christians and conservatives.  Trump has hopefully begun to turn the IRS around so they will actually go after people for their illegal actions and not their beliefs.
President Trump's executive order on travel may be generating big protests, but an IRS missive on travel and passports may not go down too well either. More than a year ago, in H.R.22, Congress gave the IRS a new weapon to collect taxes. Tax code Section 7345 is labeled, “Revocation or Denial of Passport in Case of Certain Tax Delinquencies.” The law isn't limited to criminal tax cases, or even cases where the IRS thinks you are trying to flee. The idea of the law is to use travel as a way to enforce tax collections. It was proposed and rejected in 2012. But by late 2015, Congress passed it and President Obama signed it.

[...]Here is the new information from the IRS. Seriously delinquent tax debt is an individual's unpaid, legally enforceable federal tax debt totaling more than $50,000 (including interest and penalties, but subject to an inflation adjustment) for which:

  • A notice of federal tax lien has been filed and all administrative remedies under IRC § 6320 have lapsed or been exhausted or
  • A levy has been issued.

Can Trump MAGA?

President Trump has promised to male America great again and the nation, half of it anyway, responded very optimistically. The Dow Jones hit 20,000 for the first time and has remained over 19,500 ever since; it's almost 19,900 this morning. After falling below 9,000 in 2009 this seems like an economic miracle. But the DJIA does not give a good picture of the American economy; there is much, much more. There are 92 million American out of work and good manufacturing jobs have left the country, perhaps for good. What jobs are widely available today are part-time retail and service jobs.

This article describes the poor economic condition of our nation and why the globalists like it that way. They have set Trump up as the fall guy when everything heads south as it was designed to do.
The following is written by Brandon Smith at the DC Clothesline.
As I outlined in my article ‘The False Economic Narrative Will Die In 2017’, the mainstream media has been carefully crafting the propaganda meme that the Trump administration is inheriting a global economy in “ascension,” when in fact, the opposite is true. Trump enters office at a time of longstanding decline and will likely witness severe and accelerated decline over the course of the next year. The signs are already present, and this fits exactly with the basis for my prediction of the Trump election win — conservative movements are indeed being set up as scapegoats for a global economic crisis that international financiers actually created.
Smith lists some economic conditions that Trump probably will not be able to reverse. Sure, there are conspiracy elements to this analysis, but who in their right minds thinks Obama was an accident?

  • The government cannot create wealth, it can only take it from one sector and give it to another. Trump promises to stimulate the private sector, but after eight years of Obama and  quantitative easing, is this possible?
  • The finances of too many nations are almost hopelessly intertwined due to decades of globalist fiscal manipulation. Because of this interdependency, tariffs will not be as effective in protecting our economic interests. For example, China can seriously damage our economy just by liquidating American debt. Trump must be careful here even though Mexico and Canada are chaffing at the bit to rewrite NAFTA.
  • Restoring our manufacturing base will be a long, lengthy process. Demand has to be generated, capital raised, factories built and workers trained. People must also be persuaded to come off the financial supports that have propped them for the past ten years. I'm not just talking about unemployment or welfare. Millions are now on SSI due to "mental depression."
[...]I understand that conservatives in particular want to “make America great again,” and I fully agree with that goal. But, someone has to point out the inconsistencies in the current strategy and recognize that the situation is beyond repair. To make America great again would require decentralized efforts to maximize production and self reliance at a local level, not centralized federal tinkering with the economy. The globalists have been far too thorough in their programs of interdependency. The only way out now is for the system to crash and for the right people to be in place to rebuild.
Trump has stated that our economy is in dismal shape, a dialogue in direct opposition to the economists, globalists and market seers who have been busily blowing fiscal  sunshine up our buttholes, wallets. They are lying. There are 92 million Americans (what the crap! That's the population of France and Australia combined!) sitting at home who can testify to this.

Many legislative and administrative fixes must be realized to help America become great again and there are political obstacles that must be overcome. Obama had the democrat dogs dry humping his leg and now they are baying after Trump like a bunch of bluetick hounds trying to tree a racoon.

If the Republicans can rein in McCain and other Republicans suffering from egomania/dementia and keep a majority in the House and Senate, his chances of succeeding are greatly increased.

Deliver Us ... From Idiots

The wife and I watched Disney's "The Prince of Egypt" last night on DVD. It's still one of my favorite animated movies. Especially the first seven minutes where the opening scene is the song "Deliver us.".

Deliver us. The Jews prayed for deliverance from 430 years of slavery finally ending under the rule of a Pharaoh by the name of Thutmoses III (not Ramsses II who was Pharaoh 200 years later).

The liberals pray for deliverance from a duly elected Chief Executive of the United States named Donald Trump who is against slavery, wants everyone to have a good job and protect us from terrorists.And he's been President for two weeks.

The liberals want to be delivered from the threat of a conservative Supreme Court and now pray for 83 year old Justice Ruth Ginsburg to live forever, or at least for another four years. To ensure her longevity, liberals are flooding the media with suggestions on prolonging her life.
On Tuesday evening, President Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch for deceased Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's long-empty seat. On Wednesday morning, liberals woke up, did the math and realized it was time to be concerned about Ruth Bader Ginsburg's fiber intake. Also bone density. Also exposure to airborne viruses (Madame Justice, what is your flu shot status?), and salmonella, and slippery ice, and also: Has anyone heard how scientists are coming along with a Zika vaccine?

"I'm very interested in this." says Jeanette Bavwidinski, a community organizer in Pennsylvania. "I'm interested in what her daily regimen is. Like, what are you all feeding RBG? Is she getting enough fresh air? Is she walking? Is she staying low-stress? What is she reading? Is she reading low-stress things?"

"Can she eat more kale?" asks Kim Landsbergen, a forest ecologist in Ohio. "Eat more kale, that's all I can say. We love you. Eat more kale.
More *gag* here.

Operation Desert Taco

Over the years there have been reports of military incursions and gunfire directed at American citizens from across the Mexican border.
July 2011 -
More than 30 soldiers in the Mexican Army crossed the border into Texas in Humvees on Tuesday before being processed and allowed to return to Mexico.

According to Customs and Border Patrol spokesman Rick Pauza, the accidental invasion occurred when 33 soldiers in four Humvees started crossing a bridge across the Rio Grande at Donna, Texas, and then realized they couldn't turn their vehicles around without entering the U.S.
The soldiers were released. Of course the Mexicans do not return the favor.
June 2014 -
Even as scores of illegals stream into America, and Mexican authorities continue to hold a U.S. Marine behind bars after he took a wrong turn into the country, reports indicate authorities on this side of the border are being targeted.

“Shots fired south of Rincon Village from Mexico,” the source told Breitbart this week. “Unknown if smugglers are f—king with game wardens or what the deal is.”
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Mexican civilians and military personnel have ignored our borders for decades.
DHS records show that Mexican military incursions occur quite often and regularly go unpunished by the U.S. government. For instance, the DHS documents reveal 226 incursions by Mexican personnel into the U.S. between 1996 and 2005. In 2007 alone, 25 such incursions occurred along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Earlier this year a serious incursion occurred in Arizona, in which two heavily armed and camouflaged Mexican soldiers crossed 50 yards over the border and held Border Patrol agents at gunpoint in a tense confrontation.
But soon that may be coming to an end as a leaked transcript indicates that Trump may have threatened to send troops into Mexico.
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump threatened in a phone call with his Mexican counterpart to send U.S. troops to stop "bad hombres down there" unless the Mexican military does more to control them, according to an excerpt of a transcript of the conversation obtained by The Associated Press.

The excerpt of the call did not detail who exactly Trump considered "bad hombres," nor did it make clear the tone and context of the remark, made in a Friday morning phone call between the leaders. It also did not contain Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto's response.

Still, the excerpt offers a rare and striking look at how the new president is conducting diplomacy behind closed doors. Trump's remarks suggest he is using the same tough and blunt talk with world leaders that he used to rally crowds on the campaign trail.

Nuke The Dems With Justice Gorsuch

We need to get Justice Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme's bench.
The Democrat's nuclear option created by Sen. Reid is just the way to go.
We get a true conservative on the Court and we piss off Schumer.
Release the nukes!

A Flood Of Butthurt

Noah's Flood will seem like a a spilled glass of water when Trump announces his choice for Justice Scalia's replacement on the US Supreme Court. The wailing and lamentations of liberals will be enough to warm conservative heart cockles for decades.

From the NY Post:
President Trump is scheduled to announce his nominee for the vacant US Supreme Court seat this week. There should be no illusions about the confirmation battle that will follow.

No matter what Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says about revenge not being a motive for Democrats or how fair they plan to be, there’s only one way the Republicans will be able to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

It’s nuclear or nothing.

The so-called nuclear option would happen if Republicans fully quash the filibuster, a process Democrats began eroding in 2013 when they nuked the filibuster for most judicial and executive-branch nominees.

The Democrats had the majority then, and heedless of the possibility that the tables might soon be turned, former leader Harry Reid decided to short-circuit the ability of the minority to frustrate the will of President Obama by forcing Democrats to get 60 votes on nominees.

Republican House Majority Leader McConnell, release the Kracken!
God bless you Harry Reid.  May the Rubber Band Of Karma strike you repeatedly in the face.
May Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schemer enjoy the same success.

But I ... Trump can't ... why is this ... I gotta pee

Isreal's Hi Tech

From the NY Post:
[...]Today, Israel is a high-tech superpower and one of the world’s top weapons exporters with approximately $6.5 billion in annual arms sales.
Since 1985, for example, Israel is the world’s largest exporter of drones, responsible for about 60 percent of the global market, trailed by the US, whose market share is under 25 percent. Its customers are everywhere — Russia, South Korea, Australia, France, Germany and Brazil.

In 2010, for example, five NATO countries were flying Israeli drones in Afghanistan. How did this happen? How did Israel, a country not yet even 70 years old, become a superpower with one of the most technologically advanced militaries in the world that is changing the way modern wars are fought?

The answer, I believe, is a combination of a number of national characteristics unique to Israel.
This is an interesting article. Israel kicks butt. But we knew that.
