Being able to come to America is a privilege, not a right

“Being able to come to America is a privilege, not a right,”

spicerI believe it was Monday at the daily news briefing for those who have been appointed the White House as their area of operation when White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in a news conference Monday that President Donald Trump’s immigration order inconvenienced some this weekend “for the safety of us all,” adding that Trump wanted to be proactive, rather than reactive, in fighting terrorism. For the sake of non-confusion, Mr. Spicer stated, “Being able to come to America is a privilege, not a right,” Spicer said.

From “official” campaign season, President Trump has not steered from his wording from what he planned to do with illegal immigration, the refugee problem, or sanctuary cities. Any person who has a problem with this fact, please write a comment or two in the space provided.

And YES! The reaction to this news has been the focus of bets as well as the buzz behind those “Ah, we don’t believe it Democrats,” who simply are not ready to face management or leadership since Hillary D.R. Clinton lost the election. Moreover, there are several people laying down big money on whether or not the Democratic Party will survive.

Legal challenges to President Donald Trump’s first moves to restrict the flow of people 13117714932021142289_1_348a2f2finto the United States spread on Tuesday as Massachusetts and San Francisco sued to challenge two of his early executive orders.
Massachusetts on Tuesday joined the legal battle against Trump’s order banning travel into the United States by citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries, a move the White House described as necessary to improve national security. A lawsuit contends that the order violated the U.S. Constitution’s guarantees of religious freedom. So, again so sorry that one’s theological studies are not better equipped.

San Francisco sued to challenge a Trump directive to withhold federal money from U.S. cities that have adopted sanctuary policies toward undocumented immigrants, which local officials argue help local police by making those immigrants more willing to report crimes. For years now these various cities in the several states are intentionally brought up by those law breaking individuals normally all Democrats.

The legal maneuvers were the latest acts of defiance against executive orders signed by Trump last week that sparked a wave of protests in major U.S. cities, where thousands of people decried the new president’s actions as discriminatory. What?

“At bottom, what this is about is a violation of the Constitution,” Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey said of the order halting travel by people with passports from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen for 90 days, which also stopped resettlement of refugees for 120 days and indefinitely banned Syrian refugees.

Both policies are in line with campaign promises by Republican businessman-turned-politician Trump, who vowed to build a wall on the Mexican border to stop illegal immigration and to take hardline steps to prevent terrorist attacks in the United States.

“It discriminates against people because of their religion, it discriminates against people because of their country of origin,” Healey said at a Boston press conference, flanked by leaders from the tech, healthcare and education sectors who said that the order could limit their ability to attract and retain highly educated workers. Healey is a misguided fool working politically. Where her claims are astutely incorrect is this action has little or nothing to do with the Constitution. At any rate, if judged by the president to be support of national defense, she should stop now.

WHEW! what are we becoming?

illegals bitcgiingThe idiotic behavior displayed by millions of people who live in the US of A come as no surprise to me whatsoever anymore. I believe this enigmatic posture finally dawned on me during an unfortunate slew of events struck America hard and in the worst possible ways imaginable.

Think it through people ⸻ Hurricane Katrina produced more rapes and showed individuals actually looting their “own community” shops! How about the New Orleans Police Department? Well, only 300 or so got fired! People want to talk about equity matters and equality across the human spectrum. So I say, why aren’t you acting like it? All I can do is pray and write for those unfortunate folks in “Tornado Alley.”

As one begins or continues to look at the “slew of wild events” that have happened in such a short time; moreover, if one were to look at the behavior of people about anything and everything that has occurred, one wonders who or what the bigger problem could be?

What is bigger, senators and/or representatives and Supreme Court justices being able to hold themselves indemnified from insider trading and ObamaCare, or the scallywags who parade around protesting everything from minimum wage increases at Wal-Mart to national security to “Occupying Wall Street?”

Protests in Baltimore After Funeral Held For Baltimore Man Who Died While In Police Custody

BALTIMORE, MD –

There is one thing that we all must come to the realization of; any plan in the making whatsoever for fixing American problems ⸻ must involve Americans. Far too many Americans feel helpless in the face of government, the U.S. federal government says and does two separate things. [Please believe me when I say that out of 395,000  people ONLY A MEASLY 109 had to stay for better national security and that what ⸻ 2 hours!] We have people in this country that sit around collecting entitlement after entitlement waiting for their next gig call to protest.

And what ever happened to the once in a lifetime tourist that came over just to see America? We seem or were somehow led to believe that it was acceptable for people to come to this nation asking for free housing, food stamps, food, travel, a free place to live and the right to kill anyone one wants too.

This past weekend we all got to witness something that had been announced moreover, it was the change between someone who says something and gets elected and just another liar that wants to encroach on you with more government intervention.

Trump Strategist Steve Bannon Says Media Should ‘Keep Its Mouth Shut’

Trump Strategist Steve Bannon Says Media Should ‘Keep Its Mouth Shut’

newspaperStephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s chief White House strategist, laced into the American press during an interview on Wednesday evening, arguing that news organizations had been “humiliated” by an election outcome few anticipated, and repeatedly describing the media as “the opposition party” of the current administration. News organizations ⸻ “humiliated” by election outcome; therefore, being laced as the “opposition party.”

“The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while,” Mr. Bannon said during a telephone call.

“I want you to quote this,” Mr. Bannon added. “The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States.” nytlogo152x23

Along with Bannon’s call for the press to shut up and just listen, I must say that I am one of those journalists who support him. Moreover, I would ask the public at large to give credibility to what Mr. Bannon is saying by asking each one of you too when either listening or watching to the press try and make a mental note of who, what, where, when, and how.

In additional coverage of this media mess, one would think that the editors of various categories would be a bit more selective. In the last ten years, the press has been distinguished as the mainstream media, the blog corps, and/or anything else to shut up the regular press; you know the people who document with evidence and sources what they are saying.

kgucxcnt_biggerHaving read this story in addition to some other personal non-coverages here goes. At a moment of high tension between the news media and the administration, with skirmishes over the size of Mr. Trump’s inaugural crowd and the president’s false claims that millions of illegal votes by undocumented immigrants swayed the popular vote against him.

What on earth does the press have stating anything about numbers of people? Now, I don’t mind saying but there has been so much scuttlebutt about winning the election to nothing but nastiness from every environmental group meaning the pipeline news as well as I believe the entire voting apparatus should be examined. Why? For good measure. President Trump’s daughter openly admitted that she was registered in two states as well as many members of congress. But hey, deceased people?

The Religious Lobby:

The Religious Lobby:

_35I just cannot tell you folks enough about how much of this globalization goo just undermines my skin! Today it happened shortly after listening to some news radio and feeling disgusted with the respondents the host was interviewing, then I came to one of my favorite sites and read this apparently from the Religious Lobby:

In general, Religious Globalists believe that the needs of people in the Third World have priority over the needs of people in more advanced nations when it comes to questions of whether migrants should cross borders. Underlying this is the assessment that most would-be immigrants come from conditions that are worse than those for the Americans who may be hurt by their entry.    thinker on throne

Powerful appeals for a version of open borders have come in recent years from some high-profile religious leaders who say that although a country has a right to control its borders, workers without jobs have a higher right to cross the borders in search of work. That would qualify hundreds of millions of people around the world to immigrate.

Now then I am trying to sort out who these “high profile religious leaders” are who feel as though they are powerful enough to determine personal rights.

untitled33

“NOT COUNTED” list

Furthermore imagine someone saying, “many open-immigration globalists contend that borders and communities are barriers to a just world; any person anywhere in the world should be allowed to go anywhere else in the world if that will advance that person’s well-being — even if it creates a decline of the well-being of residents of the receiving community.”

Who thinks this way other than say, Barack and Hillary? The ethics of closed immigration are based primarily on the belief that a country’s ethical priority is to its own citizens. To the extent it has ethical obligations to other people, a country should help those people where they reside, not by bringing them into the country and posing harm to its own citizens.

Closed-immigration advocates note that the same religions with teachings about the brotherhood and sisterhood of all humankind also include teachings about the creation of just societies based on mutually held responsibilities within the family, tribe or nation. In fact, without sovereignty, a “society or nation” cannot exist.

Being cordial or reporting the numbers of aliens does What?

Being cordial or reporting the numbers of aliens does What?

pew-researchAfter posting the last article on the Pew Research Center and what incredible work performed by JENS MANUEL KROGSTADJEFFREY S. PASSEL AND D’VERA COHN please understand that that journalistic piece was in no way meant to be derogatory at all. Imagine if you will the positions they are in!

The article was named “5 Facts about illegal immigration in the USA.” Although it was a well-written article, it tended to give analyses on those people from Mexico, which is a non-sequitur at least from the title. Nonetheless, I found it to be an interesting bit of information as I literally cut 250 words that I had written.doors-of-variety

Okay, all is fair in love and war writing and the correct dissemination of it. Having written about the article last night during a break from my writing time on my book, whereby I explained that I know how Pew gets its original numbers. An example:

“The estimates presented in this report for the U.S. unauthorized immigrant population are based on a residual estimation methodology that compares a demographic estimate of the number of immigrants residing legally in the country with the total number of immigrants as measured by a survey – either the American Community Survey or the March Supplement to the Current Population Survey. The difference is assumed to be the number of unauthorized immigrants in the survey, a number that later is adjusted for omissions from the survey.”

newsiqicon1Any time that any organization uses “residual estimation methodology” and/or those immigrants as measured by a survey, sorry I have a little difficulty with that. My hat is forever tipped toward the scientists who gathered this information with a salute to their effort ⸻ it can’t be easy!

If there is anyone wishing to examine how the Pew Research Center obtains the information used I wholeheartedly suggest visiting this site at Pew.

This is ALL THE MORE REASON why this forlorn immigration system needs to be revamped! I believe that if 11.1 million illegal immigrants are, in fact, living in this country then what needs to be done is to set-up some type of system that will carry each of them back to their homeland ⸻ yes, even their children regardless of age and set-up an additional Department of Homeland Security station complex that will ensure all immigrants get counted. How many income tax returns does the IRS do in one year?

The number of unauthorized immigrants

ucminorsThe number of unauthorized immigrants in the U.S. has stabilized in recent years after decades of rapid growth. But the origin countries of unauthorized immigrants have shifted, with the number from Mexico declining since 2009 and the number from elsewhere rising, according to the latest Pew Research Center estimates.

The U.S. civilian workforce included 8 million unauthorized immigrants in 2014, accounting for 5% of those who were working or were unemployed and looking for work, according to new Pew Research Center estimates.

The number was unchanged from 2009 and down slightly from 8.2 million in 2007. The share of unauthorized immigrants in the civilian labor force was down slightly from 2009 (5.2%) and 2007 (5.4%). Compared with their 5% share of the civilian workforce overall,

ChgFB8dWYAAlEKU

unauthorized immigrants are overrepresented in farming occupations (26%) and construction occupations (15%). In all industries and occupations, though, they are outnumbered by U.S.­born workers. Mexicans made up 52% of all unauthorized immigrants in 2014, though their numbers had been declining in recent years. 

There were 5.8 million Mexican unauthorized immigrants living in the U.S. that year, down from 6.4 million in 2009, according to the latest Pew Research Center estimates

illegals bitcgiingMeanwhile, the number of unauthorized immigrants from nations other than Mexico, grew by 325,000 since 2009, to an estimated 5.3 million in 2014. Populations went up most for unauthorized immigrants from Asia and Central America, but the number also ticked up for those from sub-Saharan Africa. Increases in the number of unauthorized immigrants from other countries mostly offset the decline in the number from Mexico.

Six states accounted for 59% of unauthorized immigrants in 2014: California, Texas, Florida, New York, New Jersey and Illinois. But some state populations had changed since 2009, despite the stable trend at the national level. From 2009 to 2014, the unauthorized immigrant population decreased in seven states: Alabama, California, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Nevada and South Carolina. In all of them, the decline was due to a decrease in unauthorized immigrants from Mexico. In six states, the unauthorized immigrant population rose over the same time period: Louisiana, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington. In all of these but Louisiana, the increases were due to growth in unauthorized immigrant populations from nations other than Mexico. In Louisiana, it was an increase in Mexican unauthorized immigrants that drove the overall increase in the number of unauthorized immigrants.

A rising share of unauthorized immigrants has lived in the U.S. for at least a 980010_1_0509-welfare_standarddecade. About two-thirds (66%) of adults in 2014 had been in the U.S. at least that long, compared with 41% in 2005. A declining share of unauthorized immigrants has lived in the U.S. for less than five years – 14% of adults in 2014, compared with 31% in 2005. In 2014, unauthorized immigrant adults had lived in the U.S. for a median of 13.6 years, meaning that half had been in the country at least that long. Only 7% of Mexican unauthorized immigrants had been in the U.S. for less than five years in 2014, compared with 22% of those from all other countries.

Sanctuary cities are problematic

(1-19-2017) Original from the blaze and Numbers USAlogo

2017-01-19_sanfransueAn illegal immigrant who had his car stolen is suing the city of San Francisco for turning him in to U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.

Pedro Figueroa Zarceno, a 32-year-old man from El Salvador filed the suit in U.S. District Court this week, claiming that the city violated his right to due process along with breaking their own sanctuary city ordinance. The suit also includes a demand that the city files paperwork stating that Figueroa was a victim of false imprisonment.

Figueroa was in ICE custody for two months after reporting his car stolen in November 2015. When he showed up at the police station to fill out a police report to claim his car once it was found, police arrested him and handed him over to federal authorities.10271625_738727066173535_5519494596076767310_n

Homeland Security reported that San Francisco police ran a routine background check after Figueroa filed the police report and discovered that he had an outstanding warrant from 10 years ago ordering his deportation when he failed to appear at an immigration hearing in 2005 and a 2012 conviction of driving while intoxicated.

As a sanctuary city, San Francisco city officials are not permitted — per local ordinance — to use city resources to help federal officials enforce federal immigration law. The law was written to provide illegal immigrants the ability to report crimes or seek assistance from city authorities without fear of being deported.

After Figueroa appeared at a press conference in February, Police Chief Greg Suhr admitted procedure was not followed when he was handed over to federal authorities. Police said that internal affairs would review the case to establish whether there was any officer who should face disciplinary action.

cw7rwo2ukaejcx6According to his attorneys, Figueroa planned to seek asylum due to the ongoing violence in his home country of El Salvador. They insist he had no idea there was an outstanding warrant for his deportation until the day he was arrested. But if Figueroa wins the case, paperwork filed by the city stating he was a “victim of false imprisonment” would set him up to become eligible for a U-Visa, which is sometimes given to those who were victims of a serious crime.

One of Figueroa’s attorneys Saira Hussein told the San Francisco Chronicle, “With an incoming federal administration threatening mass deportations and targeting sanctuary cities, we must hold SFPD and the Sheriff’s Department accountable and ensure that every single officer is following the city’s due process protections.”

An immigration hearing for Figueroa is set for May, but with the immigration court backlog, his attorneys don’t expect the hearing to actually take place for another two years.

The handwriting is all over the walls in America ⸻ if one were to look at Figueroa’s attorney’s name and see what they have to say about sanctuary cities and the demands put on regular officers ⸻ that were just doing the duties of their jobs – YES! There is a problem in our country.

Obamacare Lies: Let’s make this Obamacare’s Last Birthday

Obamacare Lies: Let’s make this Obamacare’s Last Birthday

2010votesToday is the sixth anniversary of President Obama signing into law the signature achievement of his presidency: Obamacare?

This is also President Obama’s last year in office, so it’s worth taking a look back at the promises he and his allies made about the law and compare those to what has actually happened, six years since it passed.

A disturbing trend reveals itself: the law was sold on a series of claims that turned out not to be true, and the American people – the majority of whom have never approved of the law – are left holding the bag.

CLAIM: “If you like your healthcare plan, you will be able to keep your healthcare plan.”obama13

This has turned out to be the most infamous guarantee President Obama made to the American people. He and his allies did so dozens and dozens of times, attempting to assuage the concerns of the vast majority of Americans who were content with their healthcare plans that Obamacare’s government takeover would not affect them.

As we all know, as Obamacare was fully implemented in the fall of 2013, millions and millions of Americans had their health plans canceled because the plans did not meet the minimum requirements of Obamacare. Politifact called it 2013’s “Lie of the Year.”

Worse? The Obama administration knew as early as 2010 that millions of people would not be able to keep their plans. They knowingly lied to the American people.

President Obama Delivers Remarks On Executive Action Immigration Reform

Isn’t he gone yet??

But like a bad TV infomercial, wait, there’s more. Over the past few months, hundreds of thousands of Americans have had their health plans canceled (many for the second time), as Obamacare’s non-profit state co-ops collapse. The co-ops are selling plans at artificially low rates, and falling victim to a fundamental flaw within the law. Overall, 12 of the 23 co-ops have failed, leaving over 700,000 people scrambling and costing taxpayers over a billion dollars.

Obamacare upended the healthcare market, and unsurprisingly its narrow provider networks have prevented millions of American families from being able to see the doctor they know and trust.

Despite his previous claims, President Obama admitted in an interview that his law has indeed caused this disruption for millions of Americans.

  • TRUTH: Millions of Americans have had their health plans canceled, some more than once. And the Obama administration knew this would happen.
  • CLAIM: “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor.”
  • TRUTH: As a result of Obamacare’s narrow provider networks, millions of Americans are unable to see their own doctor.
  • CLAIM: “We’re going to lower your premiums by up to $2500 per family per year.”
  • TRUTH: Millions of families have seen their premiums increase by double-digits every year since the law passed.

When Ex-President Obama exits BUCK-UP!

When Ex-President Obama exits BUCK-UP!

obama h_CThere is a true dichotomy going on here between the last two presidential administrations and the ways in which they have decided to leave their positions.  Please be advised that the use of dichotomies is by definition the correct word usage meaning the division into two exclusive, opposed, or contradictory groups. Between the calm, be the affront of every ugly joke a journalist could think of, and allowing the Obama administration as much leigh way and posturing as possible ⸻ please try and not forget this rip-off from the Pepsi generation ⸻ that indeed was produced by the Obama-maniacs during the transition period to what we have now…

Still mega data loads of rescinding the executive orders regarding the very unfavorable illegal immigration process

DACA and DAPA monstrous programs that need to be rescinded and redone.

The current administration has completely forgotten about a war going on in Afghanistan obama-leather-jacketand with ISIS

Wanton excessive Islamic terrorist activities without so much as a word for those wounded or killed ⸻ not to worry Trayvon, you will always look like him

We still have ObamaCare to rescind and with God’s help we’ll find a better way (Democrat’s: Hold your horses!)

We are not going to bring up Russia, Mr. Putin, or some Iran Nuclear Deal ⸻ however, we will bring up,

President Barack Obama is ending a longstanding immigration policy that allows any Cuban who makes it to U.S. soil to stay and become a legal resident, a senior administration official said Thursday.

The repeal of the “wet foot, dry foot” policy is effective immediately, according the official. The decision follows months of negotiations focused in part on getting Cuba to agree to take back people who had arrived in the U.S.

The Cuban government has in the past complained bitterly about the special immigration privileges, saying they encourage Cubans to risk dangerous escape trips and drain the country of professionals. But it has also served as a release valve for the single-party state, allowing the most dissatisfied Cubans to seek better lives outside and become sources of financial support for relatives on the island.

Relations between the United States and Cuba were stuck in a Cold War freeze for decades, but Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro established full diplomatic ties and opened embassies in their capitals in 2015. Obama visited Havana last March.

Since October 2012, more than 118,000 Cubans have presented themselves at ports of entry along the border, according to statistics published by the Homeland Security Department. During the 2016 budget year, which ended in September, a five-year high of more than 41,500 people came through the southern border. An additional 7,000 people arrived between October and November.

Unfortunately, there are egotistic, legacy hoping, childish, and arrogant people still left like Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, and Nancy Pelosi.
