Hundreds of migrants try rushing toward California port of entry, as Trump threatens to close border

by Gregg Re

{} ~ Images and videos posted on social media Sunday afternoon showed hundreds of migrants from the leading Central American caravan… pushing past Mexican riot police and rushing the border at the port of entry in San Ysidro, Calif., in a major test for both U.S. border authorities and Mexican officials. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said it suspended northbound and southbound crossings for both pedestrians and vehicles at the San Ysidro port of entry at approximately 11:30 a.m. local time. It later tweeted that the pedestrian crossings had re-opened, a little more than four hours after the initial closure. The vehicle lanes re-opened at approximately 5 p.m. local time, five-and-a-half hours after they were closed. CBP added that some demonstrators “attempted to illegally enter the U.S. through both the northbound and southbound vehicle lanes at the port of entry itself. Those persons were stopped and turned back to Mexico.” U.S. border agents shot several rounds of tear gas after some migrants attempted to penetrate various points along the border and threw what appeared to be rocks at U.S. authorities…



scumbag/clown-Schumer likes ‘independent’ judiciary, except when it’s ‘partisan’


{} ~ The highly partisan Sen. scumbag/clown-Chuck Schumer, leader of the minority Democrats in the U.S. Senate… claimed Friday that he likes the fact that Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts stood up “for an independent judiciary” in an argument with President Trump. Except when Roberts’ decisions are “partisan,” such as his “highly political” rulings in Citizens United and other cases. He drew stunned responses when he said on Twitter: “I don’t agree very often with Chief Justice Roberts, especially his partisan decisions which seem highly political on Citizens United, Janus, and Shelby. But I am thankful today that he – almost alone among Republicans – stood up to President Trump and for an independent judiciary.” The president had been critical of an “scumbag/liar-nObama judge” who blocked his efforts to secure U.S. borders. The judge in question was appointed by scumbag/liar-nObama and determined that the U.S. must allow asylum applications from people who enter the country illegally Roberts responded that there are no “scumbag/liar-nObama judges,” just an independent judiciary, prompting the president to consider the highly partisan 9th Circuit…


House Democrats Put the Brakes on Trump Impeachment Talks


{} ~ Whatever happened to trying to impeach President Donald Trump?… As House Democrats begin laying out the vision for their new majority, that item is noticeably missing from the to-do list and firmly on the margins. The agenda for now includes spending on public works projects, lowering health care costs and increasing oversight of the administration. It’s the balance that Democratic Leader sick-Nancy Pulosi is trying to strike in the new Congress between those on her party’s left flank who are eager to confront the president, and her instinct to prioritize the kitchen-table promises that Democrats made to voters who elected them to office. “We shouldn’t impeach the president for political reasons and we shouldn’t not impeach the president for political reasons,” sick-Pulosi recently told The Associated Press. The California lawmaker, who hopes to lead Democrats as House speaker come January, calls impeachment a “divisive activity” that needs to be approached with bipartisanship. “If the case is there, then that should be self-evident to Democrats and Republicans,” she said. Those pressing for impeachment acknowledge they don’t expect action on Day One of the new majority, but they do want to see Democrats start laying the groundwork for proceedings…


dirty cop-Robert Mueller Was Forced To Admit Something In Court That No One Could Believe


{} ~ dirty cop-Robert Mueller was back in court. And he was forced to admit something no one could believe… Former Roger Stone aide Andrew Miller refused to testify before dirty cop-Mueller’s grand jury. He claimed dirty cop-Mueller’s appointment was unconstitutional. “Special Counsel dirty cop-Mueller was required to be appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate under the Appointments Clause as a principal officer. Nor does the designation affect Appellant’s alternative argument that Special Counsel dirty cop-Mueller was required to be appointed as an inferior officer under the Excepting Clause by the then “Head of the Department,” namely, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, rather than by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.” His attorneys did address the fact that since Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker has replaced Sessions, he gets to take over running the dirty cop-Mueller probe instead of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. However, they argued this had no bearing on their case because it did not change the underlying facts that dirty cop-Mueller’s appointment violated the law. But the shocker came when dirty cop-Mueller’s team responded by admitting that Whitaker’s appointment did not alter any of dirty cop-Mueller’s authority…


Thomas Sowell’s 3 Questions to Liberals Will Debunk Every One of Their Arguments


{} ~ If you’ve ever wondered how you can effectively counter leftist arguments, American economist Thomas Sowell once provided a roadmap… if you will. Using his three key questions, you can engage in civil, thoughtful dialogue, on your part, that can help provoke critical thinking and much-needed “aha” moments. During his 2005 interview for Fox News titled “Thomas Sowell: In the Right Direction,” Sowell brought up these three key questions while also shedding light on his own transition away from Marxism. He spoke a great deal about the differences between the political left and right, and these questions were part of highlighting those things. The following is a clip from that interview. His questions are near the end of the clip. Sowell explained that these questions work because of the dramatic differences between the premises held by the left and the right. The left believes that “there is nothing in human nature that would cause us to be unhappy. It’s the fact that we have the wrong institutions.” Conversely, the right believes that, “Man is flawed from Day One, and that there are no solutions, there are only trade-offs. And whatever you do to deal with man’s flaws, it creates another problem.” “But you try to get the best trade-off you can get. And that’s all you can hope for.”…



The Fracturing of France

by Giulio Meotti

{} ~ US President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron engaged in a public diplomatic clash just days before Trump visited France this month… The spat began when, in a radio interview, Macron suggested that Europe needed an army to protect itself from the US. “We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America,” said Macron. Protecting France from the United States? In a November 11 speech commemorating World War I, Macron in a diplomatic welcome to his guest, attacked “nationalism”. President Trump had proudly called himself a “nationalist” less than three weeks before. Macron, it seems, was using the armistice signed in 1918 to forget what is going on in France in 2018. Gérard Collomb, France’s Interior Minister until last month and currently Mayor of Lyon, is apparently pessimistic about the situation in his country, according to comments reported by Valeurs Actuelles. “People do not want to live together,” Collomb lamented, continuing that the responsibility for security during the recent immigration has been “huge.” Collomb also warned that there is only a “little time” to improve the situation. “It’s difficult to estimate but I would say that in five years the situation could become irreversible. Yes, we have five, six years to avoid the worst,” he added. And the worst will be a “secession”, or as Gilles Kepel, the French specialist on Islam, called it: “La fracture.”…


Americans First at USCIS

by Nate Jackson: “America First” has been President Donald Trump’s message from the beginning, and it’s what resonated with so many voters tired of Democrats putting Americans last. Trump’s message isn’t just a slogan — it’s now part of the mission statement of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service.

Out with the old: “USCIS secures America’s promise as a nation of immigrants by providing accurate and useful information to our customers, granting immigration and citizenship benefits, promoting an awareness and understanding of citizenship, and ensuring the integrity of our immigration system.”

And in with the new: “U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services administers the nation’s lawful immigration system, safeguarding its integrity and promise by efficiently and fairly adjudicating requests for immigration benefits while protecting Americans, securing the homeland, and honoring our values.”

In a memo explaining the change, USCIS Director Lee Cissna wrote, “We are … responsible for ensuring that those who naturalize are dedicated to this country, share our values, assimilate into our communities, and understand their responsibility to help preserve our freedom and liberty.” That’s what U.S. immigration policy should be all about. Americans, by and large, have always welcomed immigrants who love this country and want to make it and themselves better. The problematic ones come in illegally, commit other crimes and create an economic drain by demanding services they don’t pay for. How hard is it to tell the difference when discussing policy? Impossible if you’re a demagoguing Democrat.

In related news, as we reported in January, California is now a “sanctuary” state because Democrats there put illegal aliens first. Trump fired a shot across the bow yesterday, saying the situation is “a disgrace” and that he’d even consider pulling Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) out of the state. “If we ever pulled our ICE out, if we ever said, ‘Hey, let California alone, let them figure it out for themselves,’ in two months they’d be begging for us to come back,” the president said. “And you know what? I’m thinking about doing it.” To be sure, this is far more likely Trumpian hyperbole meant to make a point than it is his actual policy recommendation. But it sure does make that point, does it not?

It’s pretty simple, really. Trump puts America first and Democrats don’t. ~The Patriot Post
