White House says AP report on National
Guard mobilization is false, NBC

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 2/17/2017 10:33:00 AM

The Trump administration is considering a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants, including millions living nowhere near the Mexico border, according to a draft memo obtained by The Associated Press. However, a senior administration official told NBC News the report was "false." The 11-page document calls for the unprecedented militarization of immigration enforcement as far north as Portland, Oregon, and as far east as New Orleans, Louisiana. Four states that border on Mexico are included in the proposal -- California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas -- but it also encompasses seven states contiguous to

This could be an intended leak. It would sure make some people nervous and get the a anarchists all fired up for naught. Strategic confusion? I hope so.

I´d say the campaign to encourage self deportation is well underway. Also the threat of jail time for illegally voting will help. Mexicans are also getting Mexican citizenship for their Dreamer children too in case they´re sent back. They´re afraid DAPA will be rescinded.

What is the problem here? They are deployed to round up ILLEGALS who have not been admitted to our country LEGALLY! If they want to come back, do it the right way. If your an Illegal and you´re deported, take your kids with you. You have the option of "tearing apart families" or not. If you CHOOSE to leave them, not our fault you made a poor choice! The President is carrying out another campaign promise. Nobody should be surprised. Root out those Sanctuary cities and churches who harbor Illegals. They will soon scatter back to Mexico if they fear being caught. As for them having any "Civil Rights" NO! NONE!

Maybe in times past but President Trump doesn´t take things off the table. He didn´t get to be a great negotiator by eliminating things he could use.

The simple solution to getting illegal aliens back across the border is to require ALL recipients of government assistance, including student loans, be required to reapply in person for photo, fingerprint, and retinal scan. Use their date of birth as time required to show up for processing (starting within 90 days). Meanwhile, remind companies again of laws that require E Verify system checks on employees of legal status to work in US and fines for ignoring those in workforce. Remove all H1-B Visas, giving Americans unemployed those jobs.

This can all be done by executive order and the responsibility given to Homeland Security. Assign an FBI agent-in-charge to each office to make sure authenticity of collected data.

"....including millions living nowhere near the Mexico border, "

Odd but typical line from the AP. AP wants us to believe that federal immigration laws only apply to 4 states bordering Mexico. So, if you make it to NYC, Chicago or anywhere else you receive a "Keep out of jail" card from Feds, allowing you to work, drive & drive drunk, attend our schools, get welfare and vote.

This AP article is worthless as information. Spicer denies action has been taken on what is still a draft memo?

Then the "draft memo" becomes a "memo" later in the text.

And the AP mixes what is included in the ? "draft" with what was in Trump´s EO already issued.

No evidence is offered that the "draft memo" is being considered. Normally a draft is reviewed rather than considered.

And is it a proposal at all? Or, instead, an outline of the National Guard as a resource.

AP assures us that people who were ´Acting Heads´ received it.

Years ago deeply involved in writing up some very important documents of great interest to our wealthiest customers I found that people were breaking into my office and my desk at night and pulling out my drafts to read.

SOOOOOO ~ I started writing up multiple versions and just leaving them out around the desk and nearby tables ~ even left copies at the office photocopier station.

It worked ~ they didn´t know what was what. Still broke in regularly.

This piece of dreck by the AP (standing for assinine pronouncements) is the perfect example of why I get my news from the internet. I can get the TRUTH from websites like this one, whereas, from the so-called major media, all I get is created sludge such as this story. This is an unverified fanciful dream story for the media. There might be some truth in it, and if there is, I am for it. More likely, it is just more liberal propaganda.

It´s from NBC (Never Believe Commies), so it has to be FAKE NEWS. Here´s an idea! If the illegals want to stay in this county determine if they have committed any serious crime. If so deport them. If not, then have them all pay a stiff fine and determine if they have job related skills that our county needs. Determine if these illegals intend to become US citizens or not. The money collected from the fines could be used to build the wall or fund ICE.

It seems as if the media is using the Mexican illegals as a cover for the suspect Muslims who counter to the Mexicans who want a better life style. too many Muslims only want our land and their Sharia to dominate our nation.
They are the ones to deport first.
The best solution for them is aid in ending the mayhem and murder by radical Islam so hey can go home to their own life styles.

WASHINGTON — Democrats have invited immigrants and foreigners to President Donald Trump´s first address to Congress in an effort to put a face on those who could be hurt by the Republican´s policies. Lawmakers typically get one guest ticket apiece for presidential addresses, as they will for Tuesday´s prime-time speech, and the invites often go to family, friends or someone from back home. To send a message to Trump, Democrats have invited the Iraqi-American doctor who discovered elevated levels of lead in the blood of many children living in Flint, Michigan; a Pakistani-born doctor who delivers critical care to patients

Spicer decided to hold an off-camera “gaggle” with reporters inside his West Wing office instead of the traditional on-camera briefing in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room. Among the outlets not permitted to cover the gaggle were news organizations President Trump has singled out for criticism, including CNN.

Pope Francis continues to argue for two interrelated points that, while seemingly humane, compromise Western nations and expose their citizens to danger. He reiterated his first point earlier this month when he said, “I appeal not to create walls but to build bridges.” Francis has made this appeal frequently, both figuratively (when imploring Western nations not to close their doors against more incoming Muslim migrants), and literally—including by characterizing Donald Trump’s proposal to build a U.S.-Mexico wall as “not Christian.” Francis reiterated his second point a few days ago when he said, “Muslim terrorism does not

"That´s what I call a very nice question," he said, apparently relieved to stop talking about his own policies, before saying the first lady feels very strongly about "women´s issues" and "women´s difficulties." Trump didn´t specify what these "issues" and "difficulties" might be. One presumes that, despite the phrasing, he probably meant things like equal pay and health care, and not what old men usually mean when they cryptically speak about our "difficulties."

(Video) - Could France elect Barack Obama president? Not really -- but that´s not stopping the organizers of Obama17, a guerrilla campaign trying to entice the former U.S. president to head to Paris. "It´s totally crazy, but the cool thing is that once you get past that, you start thinking that maybe it´s possible. Who cares that he´s not French? He´s Barack Obama," one of the campaign organizers told CNN. They´ve launched a website and they put up 500 posters of Obama around Paris last weekend, said the organizer. He asked to be identified only as Antoine. They're hoping to get 1 million people to sign a petition urging Obama to

On the grassy slope of a fjord near the southernmost tip of Greenland stand the ruins of a church built by Viking settlers more than a century before Columbus sailed to the Americas. The thick granite-block walls remain intact, as do the 20-foot-high gables. The wooden roof, rafters and doors collapsed and rotted away long ago. Now sheep come and go at will, munching wild thyme where devout Norse Christian converts once knelt in prayer. The Vikings called this fjord Hvalsey, which means “Whale Island” in Old Norse. It was here that Sigrid Bjornsdottir wed Thorstein Olafsson on Sunday, September

Tonight is the big night: all across the country, witches will gather to light candles and mutter incantations in hopes of evicting President Trump from the White House: "Men and women from around the world are planning to gather and cast a spell at midnight that will stop President Trump from doing harm while also possibly banishing him from office." (Snip) The idea is that these witchcraft events will continue until Trump is “driven from office.” There is a chant, too. It begins: Hear me, oh spirits / Of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air / Heavenly hosts / Demons of the infernal

Barbara Pierce Bush, daughter of former President George W. Bush, is slated to deliver the keynote address at a Planned Parenthood fundraiser in Fort Worth, Texas, next week. Barbara Bush has previously expressed her support for abortion, a procedure that the government-subsidized healthcare group is well-known for providing to women. Next Wednesday, she will rally financial support for the abortion provider at its annual luncheon. Barbara Bush is no newcomer to health issues. The youngest of the former Republican president´s two daughters is CEO and co-founder of Global Health Corps.

Atlanta — Democrats have a new national party chairman and it´s Tom Perez, who was labor secretary under President Barack Obama. Perez won over Keith Ellison, a Minnesota congressman, in the second round of voting Saturday by Democratic National Committee members at their meeting in Atlanta. Perez gave a speech before the vote, and he said Democrats face "a crisis of confidence" and a "crisis of relevance." He pledged to "take the fight" to Trump and "right-wing Republicans." The Democrats´ power-deficit is stark. Republicans occupy the White House, run both chambers of Congress and control about two-thirds of U.S. statehouses.
