Adoptive Mother Who Hates Trump:
I´m Sorry I Brought My Daughters
To America

Daily Wire, by Hank Berrien

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/7/2018 11:30:06 AM

Writing in Marie Claire on Election Day, a woman who adopted her two daughters from China spewed her hatred of President Trump and his administration in a venomous essay in which she stated she regretted adopting and bringing her daughters to America. In the essay, titled, “Why Trump´s America Makes Me Regret Adopting My Daughters,” Lisa Milbrand, begins her descent into vitriol with a happy memory:(Snip) But then, the horror: “I pulled those two beautiful babies away from a rising power and into a damaged democracy. I brought two girls of color into a society where it’s clear

Comments:
Now this, folks, is crazy! Flat out obsessively demented.

The irony is that Asian kids do fine here if they have decent (usually Asian, which she doesn’t appear to be) parents. They do well in school, are well-behaved. Good citizens. No one thinks of them as “people of color” in cities like ours where they are now a majority. Granted they are high end Asians who fled to save their assets. Not refugees in the usual sense. But, lady….

Perhaps you should "rescue" your daughters and move to China? Or Venezuela?

So she would rather her daughters grew up in a grim "social welfare institution" and work in a shoe factory--if they were lucky? And I agree with the OP that Asians really don´t face much discrimination here (other than reverse discrimination)despite efforts of liberals to group them in with blacks and Hispanics.

Usually the agencies that handle these adoptions try to screen out the parents who think they are "saving" these kids.

It doesn´t occur to this loon is the reason she had to go to China, where these girls are abandoned because they are girls. And in China they are truly second class citizens.

The reason she had to go to China is that the babies she would have wanted here, are tied up in red tape, or have been aborted.

If she is an FCC (Families with Children from China.) member, I hope she gets slapped down at her next get together.

She marches instead of spending time with her children, and must take money from their college funds because she´s more invested in meeting her own needs than those of her children.

She didn´t know that elections are a regular part of American life, where everybody wins some, and looses some?

I thought party-line with liberals was that interracial adoptions are should be banned, white parent(s) deny the children their authentic heritage, or something like that. So if this woman is concerned about racism as she claims, she never should have adopted outside of her race.

We adopted our 13-year-old daughter from Guatemala when she was an infant. She has so many more opportunities in the U.S. than she would have had living in poverty in Guatemala - education, comfortable home, loving family, enough to eat, etc. Never once have we regretted taking her out of Guatemala and bringing her to the U.S.

For the UMPTEENTH TIME...

The word Democracy appears NOWHERE in the founding documents of our nation and those that penned them were explicit in their negative assessment of what happens to democracies.

That is why only ONE part of the Federal government was originally to be filled by a democratic vote while all others were made by either appointment or by whatever means each state decided upon.

I am so SICK of people, even CONSERVATIVES, who buy into the MYTH that this nation was ever intended to be a democracy.

To put it bluntly, what good is a democracy when there are 51 foxes and 49 hens?

And that is not far from where we are today, with more people being net takers than net producers.

The only discrimination that Asians of any kind face here in America is at left wing universities where they don’t get accepted because they are so bright and hard working that they make other minorities look bad.

And Lisa, one of the millions of wonderful things about this country is that no one will hold a gun to your head and force you to stay here. In fact, no one will care if you leave. So, GET OUT!

Your daughters can certainly control what happens to their bodies. Don´t have unprotected sex, especially with multiple partners. Don´t expect to use abortion as birth control. That´s evil.

As for open, overt racism, that began with obama constantly slandering white people, setting race relations back 50 years. Now everything race, all the time, with identity politics tearing us apart. President Trump fighting for us against the economic warfare that china plays against us has nothing to do with race. What an paranoid idiot.

A Racist Mother making a sanctimonious public announcement that she adopted two Chinese girls as though they were her trophy from a dog breeder, ...calling them "children of color". A moron like her would put those two girls in a barb-wired concentration camp all in the name of security and protection from harm as they once did in WWII. I´m afraid these Chinese girls may have been better off left alone in China, than being raised by an adoptive mother with a "mental disease". It´s a tragedy those two girls were not adopted by a mother who doesn´t see color, but instead sees only love, and the potential the girls possess to make this country that adopted her, GREAT.

When you adopt internationally, most agencies make you meet with a social worker to make sure that you are MENTALLY STABLE enough to handle your adoptions and parenthood.

This idiot snowflake needs to SUE her social worker, since she clearly should have stopped this snowflake from ever having any access to children!!!!!!!

This snowflake needs to still be living in her mommy´s basement. She clearly doesn´t have the mental stability or maturity to be raising children!!!!!

Missing Persons List HERE President Trump is en route to the devastated area right now. Outgoing governor Jerry Brown and incoming governor Gavin Newsome are welcoming the visit. One of the more likely reasons for the embrace by Brown and Newsome is the strong likelihood of a massive death toll, and a direct correlation to their state policies.

A coalition of organizations financed by billionaire activist George Soros successfully intervened in a lawsuit against Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes in a case involving ballots counted by Snipes’ office after the official deadline had passed. The judge in the case ultimately rejected an emergency motion for a temporary injunction filed by Gov.

So let me get this straight. In his November 8 New York Times op-ed(Snip), Neal Katyal writes that President Trump’s designation of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general is unconstitutional because the office of attorney general is a “principal office,” which can only be filled by someone who has been confirmed by the Senate. That would be the same Neal Katyal who served as acting solicitor general, also a Senate-confirmed position. And the same Neal Katyal whose boss, Attorney General Eric Holder, had served as acting attorney general at the end of the Clinton Administration and

Conservatives are rightly shocked and dismayed by two recent decisions by Fox News, an allegedly Republican-friendly organization. First, Fox decided to ban President Trump’s anti-illegal immigration campaign ad after CNN decided it was “racist.” Note that Fox, NBC, and other media outlets didn’t discover this racism on their own. No, they needed that paragon of journalistic integrity, CNN, abetted by a Twitter mob, to find it for them. (Snip) Now, Fox News has compounded its sins by filing an amicus brief supporting CNN’s recent lawsuit against the White House.

A federal judge today ordered President Trump to restore Jim Acosta´s hard pass access to the White House despite Acosta´s belligerence at a press conference. Just about every media outlet who gets hard passes sided with Acosta. Screw them. Revoke all the hard passes. Make them stand in line each day with every other reporter from outlets not so privileged seeking access. The press wants to play hardball, so play hardball. Why give them this privilege when they hate him?

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) is planning to subpoena former FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch in an effort to get them to testify before Democrats take over control of the panel in January, The Hill has learned. Goodlatte on Friday provided notice to Rep. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), the top Democrat on the panel and presumed incoming chairman, of his plans to subpoena the former officials. Both officials served under former President Obama, while Comey briefly served under President Trump before being fired in May 2017.

Congressional oversight in the matters of the DOJ and FBI political weaponization has been negligent by design. While Special Counsel Robert Mueller creates the “ongoing investigation shield” for all who would be questioned, the republican-led congress has been weak in delivering any actionable results through oversight. All prior witness transcripts remain concealed as the GOP turns over power to the allies of the witnesses.(Snip) there is an understandable sentiment we have once-again been played. [Fast-n-Furious; IRS; Benghazi; Clinton Emails and now the abuses by the DOJ and FBI. All of it covered-up by the

No sooner did swarms of foreigners from Latin America arrive at San Diego-area ports of entry than reports came in they were scaling border fences. On a local talk and breaking news radio station, I listened to callers living along the border claim they witnessed hordes of black-haired men sitting atop, or jumping over, the fence near Border Field State Park. Border Patrol agents reportedly reacted to attempted breaches and all would-be crossers were turned away ((Snip) For this hamstringing of our protectors, progressive bureaucrats, not President Trump, bear the blame.

A federal judge handed CNN a major victory on Friday, ruling that President Donald Trump White House must temporarily restore the press credentials it stripped from the network´s chief White House correspondent last week while a lawsuit plays out. Judge Timothy Kelly ruled that Jim Acosta´s First Amendment press rights trump the administration´s right to have orderly press conferences. He declared that the White House failed to give Acosta ´due process,´ something guaranteed in government proceedings under the Fifth Amendment. ´I want to thank all of my colleagues in the press who supported us this week,´ Acosta told other reporters outside the federal

According to the White House: “The court made clear that there is no absolute First Amendment right to access the White House.” The judge ruled Acosta has a right to disrupt the press conferences and swipe at young female interns.

California Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell is calling for government confiscation of all semi-automatic rifles. In other words, every rifle in America.(tweets)Further, he´s warning citizens of nuclear annihilation should people refuse to comply.(tweets)When he was confronted, Swalwell tried to backtrack with some context and further explanation.(tweets)He then pulled the victim card.(tweet)"Gun buyback" is a nice term for confiscation, which Swalwell acknowledged. "Assault rifle" is a politically loaded, misleading term used by the left to demonize semi-automatic rifles. And yes, confiscating millions of privately owned firearms is indeed tyrannical.

Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, a Democrat, refused to concede in her race against Republican Brian Kemp, but has said there is no possibility of her defeating Kemp and has concluded her bid for Georgia governor. "I acknowledge that former Secretary of State Brian Kemp will be certified as the victor in the 2018 gubernatorial election," Abrams said Friday. "This speech is not a concession, because concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true, or proper," Abrams said. "As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that.

Democrat Stacey Abrams ended her bid to be Georgia governor late Friday in a speech which she said was not a ´concession´ but an acknowledgment that she cannot win. She said Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate, would win the vote count which was due to be certified at 5 p.m., just as she made the speech. But she ended her bid to be the nation´s first black female governor defiantly saying that she would be suing in federal court over the election´s ´gross mismanagement´, taking a bitter election with claims of racist voter suppression into a new arena.

U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly, an appointee of President Donald Trump, announced his decision following a hearing in Washington. The judge said Acosta’s credentials would be returned immediately and reactivated to allow him access to the White House. CNN had asked the judge to force the White House to immediately hand back the credentials that give Acosta, CNN’s chief White House correspondent, access to the White House complex for press

Jim Acosta is a pundit who works for CNN. He was credentialed to attend White House press briefings, which he routinely used as opportunities to share his personal political views and animosity toward President Donald Trump.(Snip)As soon as CNN realized that they had a White House reporter who was intent on making himself the story rather than covering the actual news, they should have given the plum perch to a real reporter who had both the desire and the ability to perform the job and model good behavior for his or her colleagues.
