Who wants to deport "Dreamers"? Not many people, it turns out. Even veteran immigration restrictionists seem willing to legalize this subset of immigrants in the country illegally if it is part of a package deal. That´s true even though a lot of what´s said about the DACA recipients is PR-style hooey. For example, it´s often said — indeed, former President Barack Obama just recently said — that the approximately 800,000 of them were "brought to this country by their parents." Well, many were. But that´s not required to qualify as a protected Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program recipient under
Yes, millions of new democrat voters, many on welfare as ´Dream´ amnesty will easily metastasize into broader amnesty for millions more illegal immigrants. Whats not for the democrats to love? Hail Trump!
DACA is a pure scam to beef up the dem´s voters rolls.W ho knows how many extended family members are attached.But I´d be fine with younger ones who maintain a 2.5 GPA in school or gamefully employed and with no criminal record.Ten bucks says 30% of them are latino gang members in sanctuary cities so they won´t be deported.I doubt the story on Drudge this morning is 100% true.We´ll see if it gets batted down today,may be a trial balloon.
Mexico (and all Central America) should be champing at the bit to repatriate up to 800,000 well-educated, bi-lingual, law abiding young people who are part of its culture. They would be a gift from the United States to further the development of Mexico and improve the quality of life for its people, especially those in rural areas ill-served by the government. These DREAMERS should be concerned about social justice in their native land, and fight hard to expand the rights of Mexicans to live in a land uninfested by crooked government, much under the influence of criminals and their cartels.
The DREAMERS who refuse to help in this manner are simply greedy, unwillinlg to give back to their own community and native nation.
As if sexism, Bernie Sanders, James Comey, the Russians, and all the other things she blames her election loss on weren´t enough to complain about, Hillary Clinton has another thing she´d like you to know about: Putin is a manspreader. The former secretary of state confided to talk show host Stephen Colbert last night that the Russian president is a dreadful sexist, and one way she knows it is in his bad habit of "manspreading," or, as New York subway riders know, sitting with one´s legs apart on a crowded subway so as to take up two seats.
New York — A professor who tweeted about teaching "future dead cops" at a college of criminal justice says he´ll continue to speak out despite being placed on leave. Michael Isaacson tells the Daily News that he refuses to remain silent amid a "coordinated campaign" against him. The adjunct economics professor tweeted Aug. 23 that while some people "might think it sucks" for an anti-fascist activist to teach at New York´s John Jay College of Criminal Justice, he thinks it´s "a privilege to teach future dead cops." John Jay President Karol V. Mason says professors have a right to free speech but expressions of hate
Donald Trump has been called ‘the new Hitler’ of international politics by Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro. It came after the US president said he would step-up if Venezuela imposes ‘an authoritarian regime’ as he urged world leaders to restore ‘democracy’ in the South American country. Maduro blasted Trump’s speech at the United Nations as an ‘aggression from the new Adolf Hitler of international politics, Mr Donald Trump’. Reacting angrily from Caracas, he said the ‘tycoon’ thinks ‘he is the owner of the world’ as he warned: ‘Nobody threatens Venezuela and nobody owns Venezuela.’ He also accused Trump of
US President Donald Trump steps up to the podium and into the history books on Tuesday, addressing the United Nations General Assembly in New York for the first time, but his own history with the UN is a long, chequered and quirky one. Trump’s public pronouncements on the international organisation – as Republican presidential candidate, president-elect and finally as a world leader whose nation enjoys veto power on the UN Security Council -- have famously run from scathing to fawning, often in the same breath. Trump’s early remarks at this year’s annual General Assembly powwow suggest those offbeat early episodes still
For Hillary Clinton, it´s never going to end. I, I, me, me, mine. It was mine! She´s never going to get over losing the election to Donald Trump. And with her foundation´s pay-to-play donations drying up, and she herself sinking into irrelevancy -- an unwelcome guest at the Democratic Party dinner table -- why should she? She´s lost two elections, and now she´s too old and in too frail of health to try a third time. So now after blaming sexism, Bernie Sanders, James Comey and anybody but herself many times over in her new memoir, she´s returned to the Russians, this time
Repealing and replacing ObamaCare, a popular Republican campaign issue for the past seven years, has been far less urgent as a legislative issue. Just goes to show that talk is cheap. Empty promises from Republican congressional candidates running for reelection, meaningless bills for show only, passed by Congress knowing they would never become law after being shredded by the Obama veto pen. Now with once-in-a-generation control of the executive and legislative branches, an opportunity to lead and govern, the GOP can’t seem get their heads out of their nether regions to do something of significance.
Months of speculation ended on Monday September 18 when Fox News programming President Suzanne Scott made the announcement: Fox News’ prime time schedule is set for yet another big change starting next week. This marks the fourth major adjustment in Fox News’ critical evening lineup in less than a year. This change has been in the works for about two months. As I reported for American Thinker back on August 16, Laura Ingraham will join the channel with her own show at 10 P.M. E.T. The Ingraham Angle, as it will be called, is scheduled to premiere on October 30. The other big change, which I also reported five
Nancy Pelosi got more than she bargained for when she came out to champion DREAMers and congressional institutionalization of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals act in San Francisco Monday. Instead of the adoring crowds she expected, she got a boiling-with-rage mob of actual illegal aliens who mau-maued her as the bad guy, drowning her out with chanted shouts of "Liar! Liar!" and accusations of being a deportation machine. Whatever it was she was doing to legalize DREAMers wasn´t good enough; they demanded amnesty and citizenship for all illegals, shouting, "All of us or none of us!"
Verrit.com, Hillary Clinton´s purportedly revolutionary new platform website for all her 65.8 million adoring followers, bills itself as news source with "an unwavering commitment to truth and facts." Well, here´s what passes for truth and facts, as first spotted by Republican operative Jack Posobiec on Twitter: FAKE: Hillary Clinton was a "flawed" candidate. FACT: Hillary Clinton is the first woman in history to become the presidential nominee of a major party. Would anyone characterize that as a "flaw?" Singling out Hillary Clinton as "flawed" when all humans are flawed has a decidedly sexist tinge. There is nothing particularly flawed
Next year, average benchmark premiums for Obamacare plans are expected to rise 15 percent more than they did this year, according to projections from the Congressional Budget Office. "In 2018, the agencies project, the average benchmark premium will be roughly 15 percent higher than it was in 2017, largely because of short-term market uncertainty—in particular, insurers´ uncertainty about whether federal funding for certain subsidies that are currently available will continue to be provided," the budget office explains. Additionally, premiums for benchmark plans are expected to rise an average of 5 percent each year from 2017 through 2027.
Six people were hospitalized after a swarm of bees attacked people on the outskirts of Los Angeles on Saturday, forcing authorities to cordon off the area. Firefighters were called to the incident shortly before 5pm on Saturday following reports that people were being stung by bees in the parking lot of a grocery store in Monterey Park, a city in the suburbs of LA. Local news outlet KTLA reports that the attack started after a wild beehive in the lot was disturbed. The chief of the city’s fire department, Mark Khial, told the news outlet that two women were “completely covered” by
Contrary to the general triumphalism of the left with its focus on owning the Latino vote, lefty oddsmaker Nate Silver sees quite a few strikes against the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals passing. Not because Trump is a racist monster or any of the other knee-jerk explanations coming from the leftside, but because polls that claim DACA is popular don´t tell the real story. DACA may be popular, even among some Republicans, but hardline immigration policy has been growing as an animating force in GOP politics for years. It helped put Trump in the White House. Helped put Trump in the White House?
Hillary Clinton compared herself to Revolutionary War hero Paul Revere on Tuesday, saying that she is “Paula Revere” sounding the alarm on Russian active measures during the 2016 presidential campaign. (Snip) In her interview, Clinton suggested that she has led the push to call out the Russian government and Russian president Vladimir Putin about their involvement in the U.S. election. “I am saying as clearly as I can — I feel like I’m a bit of a, you know, Paula Revere — I’m trying to sound the alarm about this,” Clinton said to a smattering of laughter and applause. Clinton’s
Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s team is reaching back more than a decade in its investigation of Paul Manafort, a sign of the pressure Mueller is placing on President Donald Trump´s former campaign chairman. The FBI´s warrant for a July search of Manafort´s Alexandria, Virginia, home said the investigation centered on possible crimes committed as far back as January 2006, according to a source briefed on the investigation. The broad time frame is the latest indication that Mueller´s team is going well beyond Russian meddling during the campaign as part of its investigation of Trump campaign associates. Manafort,
Hillary Clinton´s "What Happened" had a big debut. Clinton´s book about her stunning loss in 2016 to Donald Trump sold more than 300,000 copies in the combined formats of hardcover, e-book and audio, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The book´s hardcover sales of 168,000 was the highest opening for any nonfiction release in five years, according to NPD BookScan, which tracks around 85 percent of retail print sales. Mark Owen´s "No Easy Day," a 2012 memoir about the killing of Osama bin Laden, sold more than 250,000 copies in its first week. Sales for "What Happened"
Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” while reacting to President Donald Trump’s speech at United Nations, former White House press secretary for the Obama administration Josh Earnest said the overall speech lacked “coherence,” and Trump mocking North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un was “foolish.” Earnest said, “Having sat in the hall of the United Nations where the president of the United States delivers an address for gathered world leaders — that’s something I did for the last three years—what you know world leaders are looking for in that room is a coherent strategy for taking on the biggest challenges around the
United Nations - The Latest on President Donald Trump and North Korea (all times local): 8:00 a.m. Former Secretary of State John Kerry says President Donald Trump´s United Nations speech may have put America in isolation and danger. Appearing on MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" show Wednesday, Kerry criticized Trump´s harsh rhetoric against North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Kerry said, "You have to ask yourself: Is America safer because of ´rocket man?" He was referring to Trump´s characterization of Kim. Kerry said that kind of harsh language will make it harder for the United States to engage in diplomacy on
In Federalist No. 68, his pseudonymous essay on “The Mode of Electing the President,” Alexander Hamilton wrote that the Electoral College could shield the United States “from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.” (Snip) Hamilton and his colleagues never could have envisioned a year like 2016, when an enemy state—Russia—was able to manipulate America’s election process with stunning effectiveness. But it’s clear the national security rationale for the Electoral College is outdated and therefore it should be retired. Simply put, it enables foreign powers to more easily pierce the very shield Hamilton imagined
Climate change poses less of an immediate threat to the planet than previously thought because scientists got their modelling wrong, a new study has found. New research by British scientists reveals the world is being polluted and warming up less quickly than 10-year-old forecasts predicted, giving countries more time to get a grip on their carbon output. (Snip) The discrepancy means nations could continue emitting carbon dioxide at the current rate for another 20 years before the target was breached, instead of the three to five predicted by the previous model. “When you are talking about a budget of 1.5
Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown of California compared President Donald Trump supporters to prehistoric cave dwellers Monday during a New York climate event. Brown, an outspoken Trump critic, issued an usually harsh derision of Trump supporters after dismissing the president’s rhetoric on climate change science and U.S. policy toward North Korea as “stupid and dangerous and silly.” “They’re both kind of very similar,” Brown said. “You should check out the derivation of ‘Trump-ite’ and ‘troglodyte,’ because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves.” Brown attended the climate event, which coincided with the U.N. meeting in New York,
Filmmaker James O´Keefe said on Monday that Project Veritas will be releasing the results of one of the largest investigations the organization has ever conducted. The Project, said O´Keefe, will lead to people being fired. "In the coming weeks, you’re going see one of the biggest investigations this organization has ever done," O’Keefe said. "It’s a continuation of American Pravda series. It’s aimed at the media. We’re going after their holy grail." "We have tripled our journalists in the field," he continued. "They are not even here, they are out there everyday. It’s gonna be big, it’s gonna be massive.
If you had plans for the weekend, a Christian numerologist says you won’t get to them because the world is about to end. David Meade, a self-proclaimed “researcher,” is predicting that a series of apocalyptic events will begin on Sept. 23 and, “a major part of the world will not be the same.” According to Meade, the mysterious rogue planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X, is on a collision course with Earth, which will bring world-ending tsunamis and earthquakes. The numerologist claims the dates of recent events like the Great American Solar Eclipse and Hurricane Harvey’s flooding of Texas were all marked in the Bible.
Hillary Clinton on Monday would not rule out the possibility of challenging the results of the 2016 presidential election, saying it’s clear the Russians influenced the outcome and that the legitimacy of President Trump’s victory could be called into question as congressional and independent probes into Russian involvement move forward. (Snip) “I wouldn’t rule it out,” she said, though she quickly admitted there’s virtually no legal path forward, and that challenging election results at this point would be unprecedented. “There are scholars, academics, who have arguments that it would be [possible], but I don’t think they’re on
President Trump disturbed some in the press after vowing in his United Nations speech to "destroy" North Korea should the country attack the U.S. In his speech, Trump referred to North Korean President Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man" and said he was on a "suicide mission" in advancing the country´s nuclear weapons development. "The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea," he said. On Twitter, MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell said Trump "threatened to commit a war crime" by threatening North Korea.
