So, Why did You do it?

So, Why did You do it?

attorney'sJust to let everyone who reads this article know well in advance, this small writing is set on asking those (illegal) as well as legal immigrants, “So Why did You do it”? I do not find anything other than a question written here; therefore, there should not be anyone offended or wanting to sue me or anyone looking for an argument out there.

I am interested in knowing first hand why a person would leave their “homeland” and travel many miles to seemingly go through an amount of discrimination?

Think this next part through — please! Now please don’t mind me, I am just the bloke asking the questions, okay? Maybe I’ll share with you the reasons that I hear, see, and read about first. Then hopefully you will begin to see some measure of civil discourse — rather than any sort of argument or enticing debate. So here goes:

The following are not necessarily in any order of importance they are just the answers I’ve heard the most.

  • “We wanted a better life for our children, and for me or us.”
  • “We wanted an environment where we could get some of that ‘American Dream.'”
  • “We wanted to become more ‘Westernized'”
  • “We wanted to be free and enjoy the liberties that Americans have.”
  • “We wanted more money.”
  • “We always thought it would be cool to get some of those entitlements when anything happened to us.”
  • “We always dreamed of our children getting a good education.”
  • “We wanted to get into the education action; remember, in America it’s free.”

xlnt brain1Believe me there are quite a few more; however, the ones that piss me off are those that say something to the effect of “Your government can’t do that or I’ll sue them for everything…” Please believe me I can give you case numbers and the ridiculous truth behind these answers.

Did anyone happen to notice that of the eight questions listed above all started with “We wanted…”?

Well let’s just say that the USA does not offer any of those pleasantries anymore, and there isn’t some type of grandfathering clause or waiver or free education or unemployment insurance or any entitlement like food stamps, would you have come then?

So here’s my question okay? Why is it that people hear about an American Dream and they want it? Why is it that when people come to America they immediately want to change it, to fit themselves? Did you think that after so many years of experimenting with representative democracy to get this place to the point where other people would use the very laws in our U.S. Constitution to sue whomever you wanted to get your way?

This is not a multicultural hang out friends. America is not a place where anyone can preach and teach Sharia law or basically wear something that is as foreign to us as your language is — and then go on about “mercy killing” and looking for a defense.

Please have some respect for those who have openly welcomed you to their land. Believe me, no one asked me if I would give my rights away so there could be a humungous amnesty, or refugee welcome person, or asylum seekers.

Therefore, why did you do it?

It’s Time for a Rant!!

It’s Time for a Rant!!

tmpZWr3oc-mdly-photoYep, you know those times when it’s hard to find anything on television except election coverage — whether you want it or not. So I say, let’s read a new interesting book! Ultimately the rant comes back to me because my next delivery is not until tomorrow or the next day.

Somehow it just does not make sense anymore! Good Lord! So I endeavored to look at my publication forecast to see who is showing the most interesting offers. So having seen the latest coverage, it is time to write. Actually, I have been working on the all new best-seller putting in the per editor’s concerns and of course, the finishing touch.

So my rant is this: If all we are going to get in the election coverage is “He this, this, this! And ‘She this, this, and that and her husband does, ‘this, that and this.'” Please, someone, tell me that these two are beyond all of that crap!  the-kings-court

Look Trump…if you want to disgrace “Slick Willy Clinton” that go after something that has merit. Now let’s not all get excited here! Sure cheating on one’s wife is bad enough, but anger the American people by stating how the guy sold us out to China!

And then…bring in how Hillary Rodham Clinton has a record of communicating via email on her private server with the Chinese and you’ve got two birds with one stone. Plus you’ll look more intelligent than petty and maybe win a vote or two.

160912102259-02-hillary-clinton-911-small-11.jpgAnd oh boy would I like to assist HRC! But knowing me, that woman is going to find God, before I’d be in the same facility as she is. Personally, I think she will die in office – and just imagine the smile on her face!

However, I think deep down inside of me, the real rant I have is for Fox News! I mean take the show, which segment and the personalities involved, I darn near need to go to the toilet when “The Five” comes on. Hey look all of you overpaid drones and you know which ones I’m talking about…If you continue to bitch while you are broadcasting, then some  real producer should hand you a pink slip!

CcmKujIWEAAScEQI am serious here gang! Between the segments of Fox and Friends, Outnumbered, The Five, The O’Reilly Factor, Megyn’s show, and Sean Hannity’s show and believe me I have listed almost every segment with the exception of two shows per day per week that try and diversify their reporting the rest of them if you’ve seen it on Monday, the hell with it, it will be the same on Friday!

I’ve sworn off of Fox News until after the election!

Downplay Columbus Day

Downplaying Columbus Day?

694940094001_5164287524001_historian-on-the-real-lesson-of-columbus-dayA growing number of U.S. cities and states moved to downplay Columbus Day — a federal holiday — in favor of the rebranded Indigenous Peoples’ Day, but one major city rejected a proposal for the name change this year.

Among the states engaged in the rebranding: Vermont, where Gov. Peter Shumlin said the “sacrifice and contributions of the First Peoples of this land” would be honored. He wrote that the day provided an opportunity to celebrate “indigenous heritage and resiliency.”

I don’t feel the need to politize this issue which I am positive all of those in the nation’s capital are doing. Some notes of interest: Most countries outside of America have more public (federal) holidays than America does — most by a number of 2 to 1. All together I believe that the state of Hawaii has the best name for the proposed holiday: Discover’s Day; then again I am not Italian or have any Italian roots.

South Dakota has avoided the Columbus Day name for decades, reportedly declaring the second Monday in October as Native Americans Day in 1990.

Phoenix became the largest city to recognize Indigenous Peoples’ Day after a city council vote made it official last Thursday, KJZZ reported. Dozens of other cities also approved the name change in recent years, including Denver and Seattle.

But one big city bucked the trend. Cincinnati’s city council last Wednesday voted against a proclamation that would have recognized Indigenous Peoples’ Day, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported. One lawmaker who voted against it told the newspaper he simply didn’t know enough about it.

Columbus DayColumbus Day traditionally recognizes Christopher Columbus’s 1492 arrival in the Americas.

While most federal workers get the day off, only about half of states recognize Columbus Day as a paid holiday for public workers, a 2015 Pew Research Center study found.

Nearly 100 years ago, Colorado became the Nearly 100 years ago, Colorado became the first state to designate Columbus Day as a state holiday, largely due to the efforts of Angelo Noce, a first-generation Italian immigrant in Denver. The day spread, in large part as a celebration of Italian-American heritage; it became a federal holiday in 1937. It was moved from Oct. 12 to the second Monday in October starting in 1971, as a state holiday.

The latest round of computations brings to 774

The latest round of computations brings to 774

41oabvtxrsl-_ac_us160_President Barack Obama offered 102 federal inmates the chance to leave prison early, wielding his clemency powers Thursday as part of his end-of-term push to spur action on criminal justice reform. (Or quite seriously is it for his legacy? US Supreme Court?)

The latest round of computations brings to 774 the number of sentences Obama has shortened, including 590 this year. The White House said it’s more than the previous 11 presidents put together. Thirty-four of the new recipients had been serving life sentences.

Almost all the prisoners had been convicted of nonviolent crimes related to cocaine, methamphetamine or other drugs, although some were also serving time for firearms violations in connection to drug trafficking, possession or sales. Almost all are men, though they represent a diverse cross-section of the country geographically.

“The vast majority of today’s grants were for individuals serving unduly harsh sentences for drug-related crimes under outdated sentencing laws,” said Neil Eggleston, Obama’s White House counsel. He said Obama would continue considering clemency applications throughout the remaining months of his presidency. (Ask yourself: What’s unduly harsh? It’s like you’ve earned the three-time loser clause and now that law is unconscionable.)

Still, Obama’s order doesn’t set all the prisoners free right away. Many of those receiving commutations won’t see their sentences end until October 2018, long into the next president’s term.

Arlana Doris Moore, of Grand Falls, Texas, had been serving a life sentence plus 10 years of supervised release after being convicted of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and possession of chemicals used to make the drug. Moore’s sentence will now expire in late 2018, on the condition that she enrolls in a residential drug treatment program. B2045_tn

Obama’s bid to lessen the burden on nonviolent offenders reflects his long-stated view that decades of onerous sentencing requirements put tens of thousands behind bars for far too long. Obama has used the aggressive pace of his commutations to increase pressure on Congress to pass a broader fix while using his executive powers to address individual cases where possible. (This is getting too racial!)

Yet Obama’s calls for greater clemency have occasionally drawn criticism from opponents who say he’s too soft on crime. Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, has warned Americans that their safety could be at risk because of Obama’s move to set prisoners free ahead of schedule.

Though both parties in Congress have called for a criminal justice overhaul, momentum has mostly petered out, creating dim prospects for a legislative breakthrough during Obama’s final months. The inability of Republicans and Democrats in Congress to find consensus even on an issue they agree needs fixing reflects the charged political climate of the election year. And those friends are Obama’s fault!

Obama has been calling for years for phasing out strict sentences for drug offenses, arguing they lead to excessive punishment and incarceration rates unseen in other developed countries. With Obama’s support, the Justice Department in recent years directed prosecutors to rein in the use of harsh mandatory minimums.

The Obama administration has also expanded criteria for inmates applying for clemency, prioritizing nonviolent offenders who have behaved well in prison, aren’t closely tied to gangs and would have received shorter sentences if they had been convicted a few years later.

I Still Cannot Believe it!

I Still Cannot Believe it!

russian-antiaircraftThis is yet another independent article that exclaims, I still don’t believe it! I do not want to believe it — first on your side, and then on to my side. I proffer that as a matter of, “Do these people openly know what is happening in the USA?

One would have thought that in the fall of 2011 we would have, as one body made the decision, to oust President Barrack Hussein Obama. How are you feeling about ObamaCare now? And oh..! Hang on a moment — it was supposed to be the American people with their congressional leadership chipping away at reform to our unbreakable immigration policies.

Now I’m not about to go on with “red lines in the sand” as promised by Obama is chemical or biohazardous weapons were used against the Syrian refugees who had been suffering. So let our President be caught with his diplomatic fingers in the blood and vile of the refugees. I state now as I did in 2011, “do not vote for this person!”

Now things are really heating up in “the region” once again. Yep, the junior varsity ISIS warring machine is trying to retake Iraq’s second-largest city, Mosul. Not quite enough? Well then let’s throw in some Iraqi troops while at the same time, our friends from Turkey.

The Russian government is ratcheting up warnings – on Twitter – to the U.S. government not to interfere with its military operations in Syria, even suggesting American aircraft could be targeted by its “air defense systems.”

The tweet comes after the U.S. and Russia suspended direct talks over Syria operations — and amid heightened tensions between the two countries over the bloody civil war in which Vladimir Putin’s forces are backing Bashar Assad while the U.S. tries to focus on taking out ISIS.

Fox News first reported that the SA-23 Gladiator anti-missile system, which is part of the S-300VM system, has been deployed to Syria – marking the first time it’s been deployed outside Russia.

What is the count now — something around 30 days? That is all we have people! Today when asked why she would do about the ongoing situation absolutely nothing is different that 2007 – 2008 when the same question was asked of President Obama and we hear the same answer, Clinton started with, “I’d start talking…” I would go as far as stating, that the America we’ve all known will be gone forever.

One of Hillary Clinton’s top aides was granted some form of immunity during the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s private emails.

Representative Jason Chaffetz, a Republican who chairs the House Oversight Committee, revealed on Friday that Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Department, had made a deal with the FBI in which they would be allowed to see her laptop as long as nothing they found on it could be used against her.

In July, FBI Director James Comey announced that after an investigation, he was recommending that no charges be brought against Clinton for using a private server and private email address to conduct State Department business, though he also said she had been “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information.

Mills’s lawyer, Beth Wilkinson, told CNN that her client had only been a witness, not a subject of the investigation. “Because of the confusion surrounding the various agencies’ positions on the after-the-fact classification decisions, I advised my clients to accept this letter from DOJ,” she said.

In addition to Mills, the FBI also granted immunity to Heather Samuelson and John Bentel, two other Clinton aides. It was already known that State Department computer specialist Bryan Pagliano and Paul Combetta, who worked for an outside company that Clinton hired to run her server after she left Foggy Bottom, had received immunity. (That is 5 aides and 2 independents).

The Mills news is the latest episode in the long afterlife of the FBI’s investigation. Congressional Republicans have expressed outrage about Comey’s decision and have called him to appear. They also requested the FBI turn over its documents from the investigation. The FBI separately released its reports into Clinton’s emails, with some redactions.

There may be some politics to it, and moreover, Mills was not the target of the investigation: Clinton was, and the FBI found there was no evidence to prosecute her. Chaffetz argues that the whole thing raises questions about the FBI’s investigation: “I’ve lost confidence in this investigation and I question the genuine effort in which it was carried out. Immunity deals should not be a requirement for cooperating with the FBI.”

On the Friday before Labor Day, the FBI released its own report on its investigation. But it does offer a few of what a computer technician quoted in the investigation might refer to as “oh shit” moments.

The original “oh shit” moment concerned an out-of-date server that was housed at a facility in New Jersey. In December 2014, Clinton aide Cheryl Mills asked someone to delete the old messages. Apparently, he didn’t do so. Then, in March 2015, The New York Times reported the existence of the email setup.

Yahoo denies mass email spying claim

Yahoo denies mass email spying claim, however other’s say differently



(REUTERS/Denis Balibouse/File)

Yahoo Inc last year secretly built a custom software program to search all of its customers’ incoming emails for specific information provided by U.S. intelligence officials, according to people familiar with the matter.

The company complied with a classified U.S. government demand, scanning hundreds of millions of Yahoo Mail accounts at the behest of the National Security Agency or FBI, said three former employees and a fourth person apprised of the events.

Some surveillance experts said this represents the first case to surface of a U.S. Internet company agreeing to an intelligence agency’s request by searching all arriving messages, as opposed to examining stored messages or scanning a small number of accounts in real time.

According to two of the former employees, Yahoo Chief Executive Marissa Mayer’s decision to obey the directive roiled some senior executives and led to the June 2015 departure of Chief Information Security Officer Alex Stamos, who now holds the top security job at Facebook Inc.

The NSA referred questions to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which declined to comment.

The request to search Yahoo Mail accounts came in the form of a classified edict sent to the company’s legal team, according to the three people familiar with the matter.

U.S. phone and Internet companies are known to have handed over bulk customer data to intelligence agencies. But some former government officials and private surveillance experts said they had not previously seen either such a broad demand for real-time Web collection or one that required the creation of a new computer program.

“We’ve never received such a request, but if we did, our response would be simple: ‘No way’,” a spokesman for Google said in a statement.

A Microsoft spokesperson said in a statement, “We have never engaged in the secret scanning of email traffic like what has been reported today about Yahoo.” The company declined to comment on whether it had received such a request.

Under laws including the 2008 amendments to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, intelligence agencies can ask U.S. phone and Internet companies to provide customer data to aid foreign intelligence-gathering efforts for a variety of reasons, including prevention of terrorist attacks.

Some FISA experts said Yahoo could have tried to fight last year’s demand on at least two grounds: the breadth of the directive and the necessity of writing a special program to search all customers’ emails in transit.

Apple Inc made a similar argument earlier this year when it refused to create a special program to break into an encrypted iPhone used in the 2015 San Bernardino massacre. The FBI dropped the case after it unlocked the phone with the help of a third party, so no precedent was set.

Following the report, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said that it does not discuss specific techniques used to collect foreign intelligence information. “It is important to remember the Intelligence Community has specific tools available to collect intelligence information, including the Foreign Intelligence and Surveillance Act,” said kgucxcnt_biggerODNI Public Affairs Deputy Director Richard Kolko. “Collection under FISA is subject to rigorous oversight by all three branches of government. Under FISA, activity is narrowly focused on specific foreign intelligence targets and does not involve bulk collection or use generic key words or phrases. The United States only uses signals intelligence for national security purposes, and not for the purpose of indiscriminately reviewing the emails or phone calls of ordinary people.”

We are American, let’s stay that Way

We are American, let’s stay that Way

attorney'sThis article submitted today is one I have been waiting to write with baited breath. I would be remiss if I tried to declare that at one time or another many of you have seen most sequences in other posts from me. However, I can say without trepidation, that the nation as a whole is suffering because our mainstream media intentionally chooses not to write and/or cover these inherent facts.

Therefore, all one needs to do is look at something like President George Washington’s speech in November 1794: “The policy or advantage of immigration taking place in a body (I mean the settling of them in a body) may be much questioned; for, by so doing, they retain the Language, habits and principles (good or bad) which they bring with them. Whereas by an intermixture with our people, they, or their descendants, get assimilated to our customs, measures and laws: in a word, soon become one people.”

Cultural assimilation is a socio-political response to demographic multi-ethnicity that supports or promotes the assimilation of ethnic minorities into the dominant culture. The term assimilation is often used with regard to immigrants and various ethnic groups who untitled33have settled in a new land. New customs and attitudes are acquired through contact and communication. Assimilation usually involves a gradual change and takes place in varying degrees; full assimilation occurs when new members of a society become indistinguishable from older members.

We would like to start with none other than Thomas Jefferson insofar as not only did he have a lot to say on the matter, but is also the person who changed his mind considerably during the election of 1800 that many feared he’d lost to Aaron Burr. However, far more a travesty happened when Hamilton openly rebuked Jefferson’s position in two separate articles in New York newspapers.

Thomas Jefferson’s attitude on immigration. Jefferson felt that a people being accustomed to leadership that used cruel and arbitrary use of power, who remained unaccountable for their actions – or in the case of most immigrants during that period – unaccountable for their lack of leadership, tyranny, even repression of the people’s basic human rights, would therefore know not too much else and inevitably would bring that with them insofar as it is the only thing they know.

Three years earlier, at the Constitutional Convention, Madison said, he “…wished to invite foreigners of merit and republican principles among us. America was indebted to emigration for her settlement and prosperity.”

Therefore, I remain confused as to why policies within the INS law (or Title 8) are so disregarded and to the Democrats used only during that time of voting. I truly believe that when it comes to the voting process used in this country there is nothing that Democrats won’t do to gain a vote.

Just a small refresher that we all should attend to; Critical thinking has been described as “reasonable reflective thinking focused on deciding what to believe or do.” It has been described in more detail as “the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action.

More recently, critical thinking has been described as “the process of purposeful, self-regulatory judgment, which uses reasoned consideration to evidence, context, conceptualizations, methods, and criteria.” Critical thinking is commonly understood to involve a commitment to the social and political practice of participatory democracy, willingness to imagine or remain open to considering an alternative.   hillary_collage_resized

Therefore without impunity do you think that during the period of time 1794 until 1800 that the central government of the United States would have granted so many passes and/or waivers to the load of rubbish Hillary Clinton has brought with her during her leadership whether earned or not? In fact, before Hillary Rodham Clinton was elected to anything — she had the Commodities Futures Trading Commission and the Justice department investigating her for commodities’ futures buying and selling as well as the Justice Department investigating her for her lesser than honorable land ownership when she worked with Whitewater as an attorney?

Founding Fathers Quotes Friday

The Importance of a Moral Society

wake-up-americaJohn Adams in a speech to the military in 1798 warned his fellow countrymen stating, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion . . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams is a signer of the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and our second President.

Benjamin Rush, Signer of the Declaration of Independence said. “[T]he only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be an aid in religion. Without this, there can be no virtue, and without virtue, there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments.  Without religion, I believe that learning does real mischief to the morals and principles of mankind.”

I have stated on several occasions how much I admire the insight of Benjamin Rush. It is therefore quite a relief to understand his position regarding the usefulness of education is to be aided by religiosity. He, as well as Gouverneur Morris, saw the need for people — in some way to value religion for a republican government. However Dr. Rush believed that without the morals from religion there could not be a virtue, liberty, ethics and he further believed that liberty was the object of life for those in republican governmental forms. Moreover, according to Rush that without morals and principles of humankind things could turn out quite messy.

FFQFGouverneur MorrisPenman and Signer of the Constitution.  “[F]or avoiding the extremes of despotism or anarchy . . . the only ground of hope must be on the morals of the people. I believe that religion is the only solid base of morals and that morals are the only possible support of free governments. [T]herefore education should teach the precepts of religion and the duties of man towards God.”

The Honorable Gouverneur Morris puts out this statement as if he had been just reflecting after a good critical thinking endeavor. Despotism is, of course, a resulting enigma after abuse of power is found out and recognized, as well as the realization that one’s ruler is indeed a tyrant. Other behavioral reactions are found even today when a person finds out that they are living under the rules of tyranny from a dictator; moreover, what I found very enlightening was the notion of people being repressed or oppressed.

4429_strength[2]It is also very interesting to me is Mr. Morris placing such a high value on the morals of the people. He continues by stating that he feels the only solid morals are those which are postulated in religion, as he continues “the only possible support of free governments” are the morality of people. I do agree very much that Morris’ expectation of teaching only the precepts of religion to assist in guidance towards the duties of humankind.

George WashingtonGeneral of the Revolutionary Army, president of the Constitutional
 Convention, First President of the United States of America, Father of our nation,  ” Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society.”  Big Ben

Benjamin FranklinSigner of the Declaration of Independence “[O]nly a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.”

“Whereas true religion and good morals are the only solid foundations of public liberty and happiness . . . it is hereby earnestly recommended to the several States to take the most effectual measures for the encouragement thereof.” Continental Congress, 1778

FBI director again defends integrity

FBI director again defends integrity of Clinton email probe

06comeytranscript-master768“You can call us wrong, but don’t call us weasels,” Comey said. “We are not weasels, we are honest people and we did this in that way.” Something must be bothering him about the response he’s received.

“I think questions are fair, I think the criticism is healthy and fair, I think reasonable people can disagree about whether I should have announced it and how I should have done it. What’s not fair is any implication that the Bureau acted in any way other than independently, competently, honestly here. (Yep! I knew it!)

In recent months the FBI has been under fire and accused of giving Clinton special treatment due to her political status. In July after a yearlong investigation, Comey announced Clinton would not be indicted due to prosecutors at DOJ being unlikely to take up the case.

Republicans The House Judicial Committee grilled Comey on the FBI’s year-long investigation into the potential mishandling of classified email, which concluded in July when the FBI recommended against prosecution and the Justice Department closed the case. They demanded to know why multiple key witnesses had been granted some kind of immunity, questioned him on his interpretation of the key felony statute at issue and argued that the outcome revealed a double standard in the treatment of powerful public figures.

Republicans were not assuaged, arguing that Clinton, the Democratic presidential tmpZWr3oc-mdly-photonominee, illegally mishandled classified information. Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia contended that Clinton had played “fast and loose with national security” and said it defied logic that she could escape prosecution. Rep. Lamar Smith, of Texas, suggested that the FBI reopen the investigation in light of what he said were “several new developments.”

Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, insisted that the fix was in from the start, asserting that the decision not to prosecute was made even before Clinton was interviewed in early July — a claim Comey vigorously denied.

GOP panel members repeatedly pressed Comey on his acknowledgment that multiple witnesses had been granted some form of immunity. They also voiced concern with the number of people who had been in the room with Clinton during her July FBI interview.

Comey said agents granted immunity to Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s former chief of staff because they wanted to inspect her laptop as part of the investigation. The immunity deal was limited to information contained on her laptop, Comey said. Another of the witnesses given immunity was Bryan Pagliano, the tech expert who set up Clinton’s email server.

House Republicans had considered a resolution finding Pagliano, who has declined to answer questions from lawmakers, in contempt of Congress but have postponed that for now.

Hillary Rodham ClintonComey said he believed some form of immunity had been given to five witnesses, and that the actions were “fairly typical in a complex white-collar case, especially as you try and work your way up towards your subject.

By far the worst was Cheryl Mills. Here we have the secretary of state’s former chief of staff and lawyer for Mrs. Clinton who had given over her laptop to the FBI but would not give it over to the House Committee for inspection. Moreover, Mills being a lawyer, chief of staff, and owned information pursuant to Clinton’s email server — some classified, some sensitive — but get this one: Cheryl Mills was granted permission by the FBI to attend investigatory questioning of none other than Hillary Rodham Clinton.

US Erroneously Grants Citizenship To More Than 850 Immigrants

41oabvtxrsl-_ac_us160_I suppose it is me; however, every time I look at the details and actual experiences people go through the more and more I remain unconvinced.

Folks I have a predetermined and qualified posture that not only is our nation in for a huge amount of trouble but I see, hear and learn that what is going on in our nation is but a recourse of what is happening the world over.

Today I wanted to feature short term articles, then add my own commentary and see how you felt.

But not today — maybe a couple of different stories but I need to keep the number of words down on this fun-filled, quality and well-written socialized journalism.

US Erroneously Grants Citizenship To More Than 850 Immigrants

CaponeMore than 850 people were accidentally granted U.S. citizenship despite being from countries with a history of immigration fraud or that raised national security concerns.

All 858 people had been previously ordered removed from the country. The Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General says bad fingerprint records are to blame. Why then weren’t these individuals held in a different facility?

NPR’s Brian Naylor reports:

“The inspector general’s report says neither the Department of Homeland Security nor the FBI has all the old fingerprint records of people who have been ordered deported … because many of those records are on paper and haven’t yet been digitized.

“At least three [people granted citizenship] were found to have been conducting security-sensitive work at airports or maritime facilities. All three have since had their credentials revoked. Homeland Security says it is investigating the other cases.” And top US officials wonder why “we” the people of this country want to have a say in who comes and who goes?

The report by the DHS Office of Inspector General was released on Sept. 8. The error, it says, was found during an investigation into whether U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has been using personal information databases effectively for naturalization applications. What these Inspector Generals do not understand is one can share data.

oig-immigrationreport-p1-normalAccording to the report, about 148,000 fingerprint records that have not been digitized belong to people with final deportation orders or who are criminals or fugitives. These fingerprint records have been on the record since 2007. If one person could digitize 1 per day, then double that with 2 people at 750 per day if the DHS could spare 24 people it surely would not take long to have all 148,000 digitized.

However, we do have a HUGE concern in a different matter here: Q: Who do you know that has used her own private electronic devices in service for the government?

The report also describes information-sharing problems between the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
