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.
The FBI did everything but drive Hillary’s getaway car. Former secretary of state Clinton is a free woman largely thanks to the tender loving care that the FBI provided her and her conspirators during its probe of her illegal, unsecure email server and related abuse of government secrets. GOP lawmakers concluded this after grilling FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe on December 21, behind closed doors, according to John Solomon’s molar-grinding exposé in Tuesday’s The Hill. “For the first time, investigators say they have secured written evidence that the FBI believed there was evidence that some laws were broken,” Solomon reported.

Bottom-ranked NBC news host Megyn Kelly is refusing to host Michael Wolff on her show to talk about his new anti-Trump book, "Fire and Fury:Inside the Trump White House." According to the New York Post: President Donald Trump isn’t the only person who columnist and author Michael Wolff has recently left in a shaking rage. “Today” anchor Megyn Kelly refused to host Wolff on her show when he was promoting his book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” last week. That´s interesting because she is known for begging, borrowing and stealing any news "get," or interview, on whatever the hot topic of
Writing in the Washington Examiner, Eddie Scarry makes a good point asking how, if President Trump really is in the throes of dementia, can´t read, doesn´t learn, etc., as so many of Michael Wolff´s supposed White House whisperers claim, why hasn´t the public actually seen any of this? Wolff points out that Trump is a man who is continuously seen in public, far more so than any of his political rivals: Where was this version of Trump when giving one of his dozens of interviews, hosting his rallies, or delivering public remarks at any point between 2015 and now? Yes, Trump mostly spoke
Suddenly, suddenly, the FBI isn´t so blasé about the doings of the Clinton Foundation, launching a new investigation into its apparently corrupt activities. Might it really be a quest for the FBI´s lost credibility? According to a report from John Solomon of The Hill: The Justice Department has launched a new inquiry into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as [s]ecretary of [s]tate, law enforcement officials and a witness tell The Hill. FBI agents from Little Rock, Ark., where the Foundation was started, have taken the lead in the investigation and have
Attorney General Jeff Sessions, vowing to reverse the Obama-era shambles that was made of the law, has promised to prosecute violators of federal marijuana laws, even in states whose voters that have made the weed legal. According to the San Bernardino Sun: U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Thursday that he will unleash prosecutors to enforce federal pot laws, a move widely seen as intended to slow cannabis-industry investment in states that have legalized the drug. Though marijuana has been legalized for recreational use in eight states and the District of Columbia — and has been approved for medical use in a total
SAN MATEO, Calif. — The literary pairing was inevitable. “When Breath Becomes Air,” Paul Kalanithi’s memoir of his final years as he faced lung cancer at age 37, was published posthumously, in 2016, to critical acclaim and commercial success. “The Bright Hour,” Nina Riggs’s memoir of her final years as she faced breast cancer at age 39, was published posthumously, in 2017, to critical acclaim and commercial success. The two books were mentioned together in numerous reviews, lists and conversations. Perhaps less inevitable was that the late authors’ spouses would end up together, too. “I’m still surprised,” said Lucy Kalanithi of her relationship
In his stemwinder piece on the early chaotic days of the Trump administration, Michael Wolff would have us believe that Donald Trump really didn´t want to be president. It´s a desperate, pathetic new narrative, because up until now, the left has been adamant that Trump colluded with the Russians to do it. Writing in the reliably anti-Trump New York magazine, the same one that published the gag-inducing photo spread of Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski as some kind of celebrity media love couple, Wolff now tries to discredit the Trump presidency and its many accomplishments by claiming that Trump was just somehow
My psychotic friend Mike from high school calls me every now and then to say hello. Mike was the smartest kid I ever knew – and also the most pot-smoking, acid-dropping, high-all-the-time kid. Vulnerable boys usually have their first psychotic breaks around age 20, and Mike has had about one hospitalization every year. He´s incurable and can´t hold a job or have a family, and his friendly phone calls are always the same weird word salad. He´s schizophrenic, but he wants to say he loves me, and I tell him the same. His learning ability seems frozen. To learn any new
Pundits have marveled at what a big surprise it was that ordinary Iranians have revolted against the mullahs. It´s a surprise to them, but no surprise to American Thinker´s readers, whose Iranian contributors have kept us posted for years about what is really going on in Iran. Just look at these pieces by Hamid Bahrami, Reza Shafiee, Hassan Mahmoudi, Amil Imani and Shahriar Kia. Over and over again, these writers warned there was a problem, and now Iranians´ protests against corruption, soaring prices, environmental ruin, revolutionary guard thuggery, poverty, and bank collapses have become the "surprise" story of the day.
Do Democrats understand what passwords are for? Because yet another one has been caught spilling passwords to hackers, something that seems to be quite a pattern with these leftists. Here´s the latest from the Daily Caller News Foundation: Huma Abedin forwarded sensitive State Department emails, including passwords to government systems, to her personal Yahoo email account before every single Yahoo account was hacked, a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of emails released as part of a lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch shows. Abedin, the top aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, used her insecure personal email provider to conduct sensitive work.
At least 12 people have been killed in four days of demonstrations in Iran, state media reported, in the biggest challenge to the authority of the Tehran regime since mass protests in 2009. The violence continued despite an appeal for calm by Iranian president Hassan Rouhani on Sunday. He played down the significance of the protests on Monday, as the country´s leadership struggled to respond to the largely spontaneous uprisings. "Our great nation has witnessed a number of similar incidents in the past and has comfortably dealt with them. This is nothing," Rouhani said in a meeting with Iranian MPs on Monday.
Former Secretary of State (and Vietnam veteran) John Kerry and former National Security Advisor Susan Rice seem to be shuddering. And so is Ben Rhodes. Iran is having another freedom revolution, following the 2009 one the Obama administration flubbed, and they don´t want President Trump to get his big bumbling hands on it. He might just ... mess it up. Kerry emphasized that it was an "Iranian moment," meaning America´s White House should say nothing. With humility about how little we know about what´s happening inside Iran, this much is clear: it´s an Iranian moment and not anyone else´s. But the rights
MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was momentarily speechless after he once asked him, “Can you read?” There was “awkward silence,” Scarborough wrote in an op-ed published Thursday in The Washington Post. Scarborough said the exchange occurred in a “tense meeting” he and his co-host Mika Brzezinski had with Trump after a debate in September 2015. “’I’m serious, Donald. Do you read?’ I continued. ‘If someone wrote you a one-page paper on a policy, could you read it?’” Scarborough recounted of his follow-up. Trump was “taken aback” and quietly replied that “he could while holding up
President Donald Trump doesn’t read either because he’s ‘semi-literate’ or suffers from dyslexia and he also prefers to surround himself with ´office wives,´ according to claims in a bombshell new book about the inner workings of the White House. Author Michael Wolff’s book about the first year of the Trump presidency, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, went on sale Friday after juicy tidbits appeared in a number of media outlets. One of the claims made in the book regards the level of Trump’s reading comprehension and his ability to take in new information. ‘Trump didn’t read,’ Wolff writes. ‘He didn’t
Barbra Streisand took to Twitter on Thursday to share her thoughts about Trump and the GOP’s new tax plan. “I don’t think it’s a coincidence that blue states, athletes, actors, writers, producers, and directors will be punished by this scam of a tax bill, where billionaires get billions, and the middle class gets bupkis (practically nothing) – and an eventual tax increase,” Streisand wrote.
Left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer, who is leading a campaign for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, plans to hand-deliver 535 copies of Michael Wolff’s new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, to every voting member of Congress. Steyer told San Francisco Bay Area public radio station KQED: ““We believed when we started this impeachment petition on Oct. 20, we felt every subsequent day would bring information that would bolster our argument that this was a dangerous, unfit president who needed to be removed from office, and from what I can tell, this book makes that case in very bold
Just when you thought the Big Freeze couldn’t get any worse, here’s Al Gore to twist the knife. It’s bitter cold in parts of the US, but climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains that’s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis. https://t.co/6UfJ9Xxpq6 — Al Gore (@algore) January 4, 2018 Yep. Where others might see a crisis, Al Gore has spotted a Rahm-Emanuel-style opportunity to promote his renewables scam. This bitter cold, he wants you to know, isn’t a sign that his global warming theory is a busted flush. It’s a sign that he’s even more right than ever before! Well, you’ve got
On Friday, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) listed some of the things she’d do with the money President Donald Trump wants to protect America from the threats posed by illegal immigration. On her Twitter page, Pelosi introduced her series of posts by claiming the border wall funding “could do so much more” – if it wasn’t used to secure the border: “President Donald Trump @realDonaldTrump, that border wall funding you are asking for (again) could do so much more good in other places….” Pelosi followed with eight separate Tweets, each touting something she’d spend the border wall funds
LONDON - The author of a book that is highly critical of Donald Trump’s first year as U.S. president said his revelations were likely to bring an end to Trump’s time in the White House. Michael Wolff told BBC radio that his conclusion in “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House”-- that Trump is not fit to do the job -- was becoming a widespread view. “I think one of the interesting effects of the book so far is a very clear emperor-has-no-clothes effect,” Wolff said in an interview broadcast on Saturday. “The story that I have told seems to present
First, a few thoughts on the DOJ´s reported interest in taking another look at Hillary Clinton´s protocol-violating and national security-compromising email server, a scandal about which she lied repeatedly: (1) I´d be a bit surprised if DOJ ends up pursuing charges, as that ship likely sailed when James Comey (wrongly, in my view) chose not to recommend prosecution in July 2016. (2) I´m somewhat uncomfortable seeing the supposedly-independent Justice Department clearly bowing to incessant political pressure from the president on this subject. It´s true that President Obama telegraphed his preferred outcome
The illegal immigrant and seven-time felon who was acquitted of murder and assault in the 2015 San Francisco fatal shooting of 32-year old Kate Steinle was sentenced to three years in prison on Friday. Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was credited for time served. He will be on parole for 48 months and will remain in custody to face federal charges. (Photos) The case sparked national debate over immigration reform and so-called Sanctuary Cities that shield illegals from deportation, of which San Francisco is one.The felony possession was the only conviction to come out of Garcia Zarate’s trial in November. The
President Trump on Saturday launched a remarkable defense of his mental fitness for office, calling himself a “very stable genius” and “like, really smart.” Trump made the defense in a series of tweets that appeared to push back on questions raised by a new book that painted a chaotic and dysfunctional picture of his campaign and early months of his presidency. “Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart,” Trump tweeted. The president said doubts about his mental capacity have been frequently raised by his critics, but he proved them wrong
Mitt Romney changed his Twitter profile location from “Massachusetts” to “Holladay, UT” as soon as Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) announced his retirement on Tuesday. It is clear that Romney intends to run for the open seat, and pundits agree that he is likely to win. But in all the speculation about whether Romney would run in Utah, no one has asked whether he should, or what broader purpose his victory there would serve, beyond his own ambitions.
In July, MSNBC host and former Rep. Joe Scarborough showily announced on Stephen Colbert´s CBS show that he was leaving the Republican Party. No one on the Republican National Committee flew a flag at half-mast. The announcement was at least a decade behind the reality. In 2006, he basically called then-President Bush an idiot. Last week, he did the same to President Trump. There is consistency here from the man who craves attention.Scarborough is the MSNBC equivalent of David Gergen, someone always twiddling his spit-covered finger in the wind and switching his allegiances depending on which option benefits him the
