Honduran president is funding massive migrant caravan headed for US

by Jerry McCormick

{} ~ Many have been speculating the massive caravan headed to the United States is politically motivated… and Vice President Mike Pence just proved them all correct .According to Pence, Honduras President Juan Orlando Hernandez told him that Venezuela is actually funding the caravan.The timing of the incoming caravan, which could comprise more than 5,000 migrants, was rather conveniently timed out with our midterm elections. And to quote NCIS’s Agent Gibbs: “I don’t believe in coincidence.” While liberals are already taking up the case for letting the caravan in, the reality is that this group presents a real danger to our country. There are literally thousands of people about to attempt to rush over our border — and we have no idea where they are coming from or how dangerous they are. Even Pence himself stated: “It’s inconceivable that there are not people of Middle Eastern descent in a crowd of more than 7,000 people advancing towards our border.”…


Migrant Caravan has People ‘From All Over the World’

by Mary Chastain

{} ~ On Monday, I blogged that reporters discovered Bangladeshis mixed in the migrant caravan moving towards the US border… Now Judicial Watch and Sara Carter have reported that people “from all over the world” are in the caravan as the MSM has slammed President Donald Trump for making claims that criminals and people from the Middle East have joined the caravan. There’s also a second caravan forming in Guatemala. The migrant caravan began in Honduras and went through Guatemala to get to the Mexican border. This has caused problems as President Jimmy Morales said the country “has absorbed the huge cost of mobilizing police and military to return thousands of people to Honduras.” Morales stated that this kind of mass immigration “endangers lives” and officials are “doing everything possible to stop the caravan while still respecting human rights.”…



Police Had To Escort Me To Give A Campus Speech On Due Process — Here’s What Happened

by Amber Athey

{} ~ Promises of disruptive protests and physical threats required police to escort me as I walked onto The American University (AU) campus Tuesday night… to deliver a speech on why due process is especially important in the #MeToo era. Several weeks ago, AU Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) invited me to give a speech on a topic of my choosing. The country was fixated on the Kavanaugh hearings. The subject seemed obvious: Due process. The title, “No, Don’t Believe All Women,” was intended to provoke thought. The purpose of my speech was to encourage open thought about balancing support for sexual assault victims with protecting the rights of the accused and making sure that innocent lives aren’t ruined by false allegations. The topic proved too triggering for many students at American University. Just hours after the event hit Facebook, students on campus expressed their intent to protest and organize a safe space…



Exclusive: German bank holds account for soon to be sanctioned Iran Air

by Benjamin Weinthal

{} ~ The Jerusalem Post can reveal that the German bank Varengold in the city of Hamburg conducts business with Iran Air… an airline that will be sanctioned by the US government on November 4 – and the Liechtenstein-based Union Bank is also involved in commerce with the Islamic Republic of Iran. A highly reliable source confirmed the business of the two European banks with Iran. The source’s information was buttressed by Iran Air’s website, revealing the bank account data for Varengold. Iran Air Deutschland (Germany) lists on its website account information for transfers to Varengold. Iran Air has been accused of aiding Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad in his war against Syrian opposition groups. The new round of US sanctions on Iran’s bank, airline and energy sectors will be imposed on November 4, creating legal and financial exposure among companies in Germany and across Europe which could face US economic penalties for doing business with Iran. Post press email queries to Varengold Bank, Union Bank and Iran Air’s Frankfurt office were not immediately returned. Major German and European banks are staying away from Iran’s market because they fear US sanctions. In a May 2018 Atlantic magazine article titled “How Iran Can Evade Sanctions This Time,” Liechtenstein was mentioned as a country where “Iran used a shifting network of front companies” to conduct business…


Megyn Kelly Taken Off Air, Reportedly Being Shopped to Other Networks

by Matt

{} ~ Megyn Kelly has been taken off the air during 9am slot on NBC following blowback after she questioned the offensiveness of blackface… angering much of her audience and colleagues at the network. CNN’s Oliver Darcy, quoting Brian Stelter, (both noted “media experts,”) weighed in on the reports: Kelly’s comments, which came during a discussion on offensive Halloween costumes, can be viewed below: In Stelter’s report at CNN, he said that “Kelly’s exit from the 9 a.m. hour of the “Today” show appears to be imminent, according to sources with knowledge of the matter. Kelly will not be hosting her program on Thursday, and she is unlikely to return later, one of the sources said. Friday episodes of her show are usually pre-taped.” So while Kelly will technically be hosting her show until the end of the week due to pre-tapings, it’ll exclude her starting next week. Yesterday, ahead of this news, Kelly parted with her talent agency CAA and hired attorney Bryan Freedman. “The decision to retain a lawyer may signal a lengthy battle over her contract, which is reportedly valued at $23 million a year. She is in the middle of the second year of a three year contract,” Stelter noted. CBS also reported that Kelly’s show is in jeopardy this morning…



What dummycrats-Dems Used to Say About Illegal Immigration and Border Security

by Thomas Gallatin: “We all agree on the need to better secure the border, and to punish employers who choose to hire illegal immigrants. We are a generous and welcoming people here in the United States, but those who enter the country illegally and those who employ them disrespect the Rule of Law, and they are showing disregard for those following the law. We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked, and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, and lawfully to become immigrants in this country.” That was Barack Obama in 2005.

In one of his savvier Twitter moments, President Donald Trump tweeted a video of scumbag/liar-nObama’s remarks, adding, “I agree with President scumbag/liar-nObama 100%!”

Again in 2006 scumbag/liar-nObama struck a similar chord, repeating much of the same phrasing while adding, “Because we live in an age where terrorists are challenging our borders, we simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, and unchecked. Americans are right to demand better border security and better enforcement of the immigration laws.”

But scumbag/liar-nObama is far from the only dummycrats-Democrat leader to hold these views on illegal immigration. Sen. Dianne Fein-stein (CA) once declared that border control is a federal responsibility while lamenting that “we simply don’t enforce our borders adequately.” She insisted, “The day when America can be the welfare system for Mexico is gone.”

And scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton wanted to “send a clear message” when she warned, “Just because your child gets across the border, that doesn’t mean your child gets to stay.” She has also sounded downright Trumpian in the past, stating, “I am adamantly against illegal immigrants. Certainly we have to do more at our borders. … What we need is to secure our borders.”

Once upon a time, Sen. Chuck scumbag/clown-Schumer (D-NY) refused to conflate legal immigration with illegal immigration, declaring, “People who enter the U.S. without our permission are illegal aliens, and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who enter the U.S. legally. … When we use phrases like ‘undocumented workers,’ we convey to the American people that their government is not serious about combatting illegal immigration. … It is illegal and wrong.”

It’s funny how dummycrats-Democrats and the mainstream media insist President Donald Trump and Republicans have moved to an extreme position on the issues of illegal immigration and border security. The fact is, it is dummycrats-Democrats who have moved and become beholden to the extreme Left. Republicans are quite simply the only ones holding a sensible and balanced position on this issue.

Meanwhile, as dummycrats-Democrats and the Leftmedia continue to paint Trump as a Nazi-like nationalist for simply seeking to secure the U.S. border and prevent the illegal entry of this caravasion now estimated to be 10,000 strong, a second caravan of migrants is reportedly forming in Guatemala. Clearly, this problem is not going away. Fortunately, the U.S. Border Patrol has been working diligently as apprehensions of illegal aliensare up by nearly 100,000 to a total of 521,090 in fiscal year 2018.

Finally, in the 1995 words of liar-Bill Clinton: “All Americans … are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country. … It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation to permit this kind of abuse of our immigration laws.” Can we get an amen?
