Mass refugee exodus prompts new
border controls – in Brazil and Colombia

American Thinker, by Monica Showalter

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 2/11/2018 5:37:43 AM

A border rush? Of refugees? From violence? Like what we had with the Central American "unaccompanied minors" crisis of 2014? Nope, it´s someplace else – Colombia and Brazil, which just announced the clampdown on their borders with restricted cards, punishments for illegals, and thousands more border guards, to keep unchecked illegal immigration under control, as thousands and thousands of Venezuelans flee their hellish homeland. According to Reuters: Colombia and Brazil tightened border controls with Venezuela on Thursday as both nations grapple with a mounting influx of hundreds of thousands of desperate migrants fleeing a worsening economic crisis.

Comments:
Bet we´re not gonna see them signing any more Friend of the Court petitions to condemn Arizona.

FTA: He (Columbian president Santos) said Colombia was spending millions of dollars to support the migrants.

This cannot be true because when refugees come to the USA, they do jobs Americans won´t, pay taxes, and have an overall positive impact on the American economy. /sar

But, I thought Socialism was the Utopia creator. Isn´t it funny how throughout the entire history of humans on this planet, not one single example exists of a grand socialist Utopia. they all turn into massive cesspools of human misery. Yet, here we have thousands of idiot Americans drooling over the likes of Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, "Poka-hauntus" Warren, Schumer and "Nana" Pelosi. All self avowed socialists or closet socialist.

Exactly, #4. If these "hundreds of thousands" would rush the capital and take the guns away from the police and the army, they could fix their own problem. Their dictator could then be forced to wish for a death as easy as Mussolini had.

Funny how those countries can crack down hard and the US is condemned, chastised and ridiculed for even mentioning it. It is proof from Mexico on down they have little to no regard for American sovereignty, that the US is like Israel to their Palestine.

With all of the cracking down it is going to leave those Venezuelans one direction, north, this mass exodus is a prelude for the US I am afraid.

Amazing how other countries know about border controls, but the US is supposed to forget about it and allow everyone in.
Thanks for nothing you disgusting Kenyan born punk!

Saudi arrests of female activists
come amid prince´s wider crackdown
NBC News, by F. Brinley Bruton    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 5/26/2018 10:47:33     Post Reply
Saudi Arabia´s powerful crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, has won international plaudits for his program to transform the reclusive and deeply conservative kingdom. So the recent arrests of a handful of women’s rights activists, ranging in age from their 20s to their 70s, were met with widespread surprise and condemnation. But while the latest detentions have drawn criticism, they come amid a much wider crackdown on those who have called for changes in the absolute monarchy or fail to publicly support the prince. While engaging in an international charm offensive to publicize his sweeping plans to transform Saudi society and economy, the

Is 100 Percent Renewable Energy Possible?
American Thinker, by Norman Rogers    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 5/25/2018 11:31:42     Post Reply
The people who are best described as members of a renewable energy cult are lately promoting the idea that we should run the country on 100% renewable energy, whatever that is. I say "whatever that is" because different branches of the cult have different definitions of renewable energy. It seems to be a matter of fashion and prejudice. One definition of renewable energy is that it is naturally replenished on a human timescale. Solar energy and wind energy fit in nicely with that definition. Most fans of renewable energy explicitly reject renewable hydroelectricity if it involves damming a river. Most renewable

Netflix´s deal with former President Obama to produce content for its shows isn´t going as well as its media toadies hailing the scheme thought it would. They presented us with this, and assumed we´d get excited about it. NPR reports: Netflix said in a statement that the Obamas would "produce a diverse mix of content – including docu-series, documentaries and features" under their imprint, Higher Ground Productions. "Michelle and I are so excited to partner with Netflix – we hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help

Uh-oh. Wasn´t it just weeks ago that the Washington swamp declared House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, a California Republican, a goner in his re-election effort? Here´s what the headline on The Hill looked like less than a month ago last April: "Election forecaster: Nunes seat no longer ´safe´ Republican." The article gushes about how Nunes had a Democratic challenger for his House seat and the challenger had raised more than a million dollars. His seat was no longer...safe! Oooh, scary, scary. Turns out it was all baloney. Here´s the new headline, from the Washington Examiner: "Devin Nunes´ fundraising explodes

James Clapper has a brand new book to sell, which must be his excuse for forgetting Denis Healey´s First Law of Holes: "When in one, stop digging." Yesterday, he appeared on The View and brought a metaphorical shovel with him. The entire nine-and-a-half-minute segment is embedded below, and it is worth watching if only to observe the bizarre facial expressions he manifested while tap-dancing around the truth of what he and other members of the cabal have been caught doing. Fortunately for those in a hurry, Doug Ross put together a collage of his contortions that reveal his stress and discomfort

With fentanyl, China uses

A new report out from Bloomberg (first spotted on Axios Vitals) signals that China has more ways to defeat us than merely through its military buildup: Federal prosecutors in Mississippi charged [Chinese national] Yan, 41, in September with leading an empire built on the manufacture and sale of drugs related to fentanyl, one of the world´s deadliest and most profitable narcotics. So strong that it´s been studied as a chemical weapon, the drug has saturated American streets with breathtaking speed: It kills more people than any other opioid, including prescription pills and heroin, because it´s so easy to overdose.

For Democrats, succoring illegals and doling out nationalized "free" health care are signature issues. What better way to enact that agenda than to offer California´s abundant illegal aliens free state health care? That´s the scheme they´ve cooked up, in their relentless push to make California a West Coast imitation of socialist Venezuela. It´s so bad that it´s likely to draw California voters toward Republicans. Here´s what´s going on, from Politico´s Victoria Colliver: California is poised to become the first state in the nation to offer full health coverage to undocumented adults even as the Trump administration intensifies its crackdown by separating families at

When Apple sought approval of its plans to build a massive 2.8 million square foot “spaceship headquarters in 2013, it made a deal that included giving up a $2 million-a-year tax break from the City of Cupertino. In the words of the San Jose Mercury-News back then: The nearly $2 million in Apple sales tax that Cupertino will now get to keep its hands on is only a small part of a list of goodies that the company’s presence provides the town every year, said analyst Tim Bajarin with Creative Strategies. “Apple pours money back into the Cupertino economy in a lot

Another blow to Cuban tourism

Back in December 1972, Nicaragua was hit by a horrible earthquake. It killed 10,000 people, devastated villages, and may have been the beginning of the end of Somoza´s reign. The damage exposed the corruption and inefficiencies of the regime. A couple of days ago, an air crash in Cuba killed 100 people and exposed some serious problems in the Castro regime. My good Cuban friend, Dr. Carlos Eire, brought this item to my attention: Cuba´s problems have gotten so bad that, a few weeks ago, the country grounded most of its domestic flights because of safety concerns over its fleet.

Not everyone from the Parkland school shooting is an activist for gun control. Kyle Kashuv, in fact, is quite adamant that the Second Amendment is not the problem; government failure is.

Democrats painted President Trump´s nominee to lead the Central Intelligence Agency, Gina Haspel, as some sort of torture-minded anti-Muslim terrorist fanatic. Like most of us care whether terrorists busy trying to kill us end up getting tortured. It wasn´t true and was boring as hell. Now that she has finally been confirmed as CIA Director, it turns out they were doing something more than just smearing her, they were withholding her real story that we as Americans needed to have, which is that she has major expertise on our top espionage adversary, Russia. According to PBS: She´s sure to tap that latter

The legacy left by Richard Pipes, a historian of Russia who taught at Harvard who died yesterday at the age of 94, rightly should include the fall of the Soviet Empire and the liberation of Eastern Europe. His family, including his son, Daniel Pipes, who, as president of The Middle East Forum, is performing a similar contribution on the resurgent forces of jihad, has my deepest condolences. Even the New York Times obituary of Professor Pipes acknowledges his contribution in turning the United States away from a strategy of accepting Soviet dominance of Eastern Europe and its role as champion of

Hillary Clinton continued to attack the Electoral College system used to elect U.S. presidents on Friday, calling it an "odd system" and contrary to the idea of "one person, one vote." "I know this is another really obvious thing to say. Vote in every election, not just presidential elections," Clinton said at Harvard University, in a clip flagged by NTK Network. "You know, it is maddening because one of the panelists said we get the government that we vote for. Now, we have this odd system with the Electoral College."

The public face of the gun-control movement demanded $1 million Thursday from the Florida-based grocery chain in a tweet, just one day after calling for a “die-in” protest at its stores. Publix is being targeted by Mr. Hogg for its support of Adam Putnam, a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is now the state’s agricultural commissioner. The Tampa Bay Times reported earlier this week that Publix had given $670,000 during the last three years to Putnam campaigns. Mr. Hogg not only sought atonement money from the grocery chain in Thursday’s tweet, he also demanded a pledge of ideological fealty to the

President Barack Obama took a light swing at his successor during a tech conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday. His eight years in office were scandal free, he told the audience. "I didn´t have scandals, which seems like it shouldn´t be something you brag about," Obama joked. President Donald Trump’s presidency has thus far been racked with scandalous allegations, but Obama later hedged his barb. "But actually,” he said, “if you look at the history of the modern presidency, coming out of the modern presidency without anybody going to jail is really good. It´s a big deal." The reason his

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko. According to Klemko, some are discussing ways to skirt new rules "just to spite the NFL." The policy removes a requirement for players to be on the field for the anthem, and gives players the option to stay in the locker room. Teams will be fined for any personnel that "do not show proper respect for the flag and Anthem” on the sidelines. Other journalists were hearing similar things from players they talked to.

Florida-based supermarket chain Publix announced Friday that corporate-backed political contributions will be suspended “as we reevaluate our giving processes” – an announcement that came shortly before Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg’s “die-in” protest. In response to the revelation earlier this month that Publix donated $670,000 to Florida GOP gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam, Hogg organized the “die-in” protest to occur at a Publix in Coral Springs on Friday where participants were instructed to lie down in the store for 12 minutes. Shortly before the protest was set to begin at 4 p.m., Publix issued a statement regarding the suspension of corporate-funded

Until 1968, Walter Cronkite believed what his government told him about the Vietnam War. He was an old-school journalist, a patriot, a man who came of age covering World War II as a wire-service reporter and then taking over as the anchor of “The CBS Evening News” at the height of the Cold War. Like most journalists of his generation, he embraced the fight against communism and understood why the United States had intervened in the war raging in Vietnam. When he’d visited Vietnam on a reporting trip early in the war, he’d been annoyed by the attitude of the young
