    Ivanka & family getting harassed on Jet Blue this morning.
    Animals don’t get their way so they cry, stomp their feet and ruin the trips for everyone in the at plane as thy had to wait for them to get ejected by security. Just further cementing the fact that the two are liberals and demented when they don’t get their way in life.

    He should have been arrested for harassment/threatening and banned from jet blue.

    From Gateway Pundit running now:
    “Angry Democrats Plan Violent Protests for Trump Inaugural”
    Information obtained by Roger Stone from an operative inside the planning meetings #ObamasChildren and #J20PlanningCommittee apparently shows that angry sore losers plan to do as REAL damage as possible to disrupt the Inaugural ceremonies and celebrations on and around January 20th, 2017 for President-Elect Donald Trump.
    These violent acts include, but are not limited to, “launching rockets from drones” and playing violent “roller derby” to knock down innocent civilians.

      Yeah well, if O was still President that would be a problem. The new boss along with very supportive police may not be as forgiving.

        It should be just like Drivers Licenses.
        But then, when has DC ites, ever been concerned about a little thing like The Constitution?
        We Will be totin’ in Virginia!

      so since they are advertising their intentions can’t law enforcement be PROACTIVE?

      I know these people believe they are above the law – 8 years of such an atmosphere – but it is time to let them know a new sheriff is in town and regular old everyday citizens are going to be protected.

      That’s my hope anyhow.

    I read this article, titled: Fundraising histories and lots of experience in speculative Clinton Cabinet
    by Jack Noland on October 28, 2016

    LOL, can’t stop laughing
    article starts off with Washington thrives on speculation and now, after months of guessing at things like primary contenders and vice presidential picks, it’s time to draft potential cabinets.
    then progresses to the most funniest part (top line in 2nd paragraph):The key for would-be President Clinton, of course, is winning the election, which at this writing, seems more likely than not.

    Too funny!
    But a great read …of speculation that didn’t come to fruition

    I just read a very mean article supposedly listing all the musicians who have turned down playing at the inauguration. I think the article is in large part bs, because it lists the Dixie Chicks as one of the groups who supposedly refused to play. I find it hard to believe they were asked, and I hope to God they were not.

    Apparently Elton John turned down the offer and said Trump should pick Ted Nugent. I actually agree with that. Also, there were so many great singers who opened his rallies, one of those could have been chosen to sing the National Anthem.

      I think the MSM is putting out the lie that Team Trump are ‘begging for entertainers.”

      PE Trump we do not want those ‘famous’ celebs and I hope he did not ask Celine Dion or Elton John.

      But if he is willing to ask those from other countries, please get this little 10-year old autistic girl from Northern Ireland. The others in the chorus are all special needs kids too.

      So much talent in the U.S. and around the world.

      Terrific. I think this is a “poke in the eye” to the GOP elites/Democrat elites/nutjob wings of the Mormon Church (i.e., Mitt Romney, Harry Reid, Glenn Beck, et al).
      And besides, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is a magnificent singing organization.

    Obama just made it harder for Trump to create a Muslim registry
    Dec 22nd 2016

    Outgoing President Barack Obama has made no secret of the fact that he thinks Donald Trump’s on-again-off-again plan to create a database of Muslims in the United States is a bad idea, but once the president-elect takes office, there won’t be anything he can do to stop him. On his way out the door, however, Obama did put an obstacle in Trump’s way

    The Department of Homeland Security on Thursdayofficially shut down the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System, a leftover program put in place in 2002 following the 9/11 terror attacks a year earlier. The controversial program required males aged 16 and older who enter the U.S. from specified countries to be fingerprinted, photographed, and interviewed about their plans. The program is also extended to people already living legally in the U.S. if they came from countries on the list…

      I think New York Times & Washington Post is trying to bamboozle readers…or at very least mixing apples with oranges.

      here is what I found on this NEERS subject (Program short title: NSEERS Registration)

      according to Washington Post:
      was used to register and monitor visitors from “high-risk” countries from 2002 to 2011.
      Obama shelved the program in 2011, but the regulations that allow it to function were never dismantled.

      “The Department of Homeland Security is removing outdated regulations relating to an obsolete special registration program for certain nonimmigrants,” the agency said Thursday in a document first reported by the New York Times and confirmed by the agency.
      see full article at:

      I think New York Times & Washington Post is trying to bamboozle readers…or at very least mixing apples with oranges.
      because I read this statement from DHS reflecting the program was shut down in 2011.
      DHS Removes Designated Countries from NSEERS Registration (May 2011)
      As part of the Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties’ (CRCL) outreach efforts, we have translated the following announcement into Arabic, Bengali, Farsi, French, Pashto and Urdu.
      Last Published Date: September 29, 2015
      DHS announced the removal of the list of countries whose nationals have been subject to registration under the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS)—effectively ending the NSEERS registration process through the publication of a notice in the Federal Register.
      DHS and the U.S. government have conducted roundtables, meetings, and town halls with our community partners around the nation, regarding the NSEERS process. NSEERS was first implemented in 2002 as a temporary measure in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and was designed to record the arrival, stay, and departure of certain individuals from countries chosen based on an analysis of possible national security threats. The NSEERS registration required approximately 30 minutes in secondary inspection, per person, per arrival; and NSEERS registrants were also required to register upon departure at one of the 118 designated ports of departure, limiting travel flexibility.
      Since NSEERS was created, DHS has implemented several automated systems that capture arrival and/or exit information, making the manual entry of this data via the NSEERS registration process redundant, inefficient and unnecessary. The improved and expanded DHS and Department of State systems capture the same information for visitors, regardless of nationality.
      As a result of these advances and input from community groups and advocacy organizations, we are pleased to announce that the Department is officially ending the NSEERS registration process. This step will streamline the collection of data for individuals entering or exiting the United States, regardless of nationality.
      Because the Secretary of Homeland Security’s authority under the NSEERS regulations is broader than the manual information flow based on country designation that has now ended, the underlying NSEERS regulation will remain in place in the event a special registration program is again needed.
      Of course, all persons, baggage, and their conveyances arriving in or leaving the United States are subject to inspection and any traveler and his or her belongings may be subject to secondary screening for a variety of reasons, but referrals to secondary screening are not done automatically based on nationality. Rather, under DHS policy, screening is based on many criteria, which are carefully designed to reflect current intelligence and respect civil rights requirements.

    New low for the harpies today….

    We have a Jewish fellow on staff who is now convinced that he and his family are going to be “targets” of the Trump Secret Police (where did that come from?) and rounded up into FEMA camps because Steve Bannon is anti-Jew. He’s trying to learn ways to keep his stress down. Apparently stoking his fear is this story about a Jewish family being blamed for the cancellation of a Christmas play in Lancaster Counter (link below; I don’t know how to create a picture of the story). Breitbart brought so much heat, so the story goes, that the family had to run away. His quote: “Thus it begins,” and then: “As a Jew, I take this very seriously.” (Lately a lot of his harping has begun with “As a Jew….”) Really, guys, they’re going to panic themselves into the grave.


    • sunnydaze says:

      Does he know Ivanka is Jewish? As are his grandchildren?

      Thank God the Jews I know are RELIEVED Trump is Prez cuz they know about all the European Jews again fleeing Euro countries that have been overrun with radical Jew hating Muslims.

      Maybe he’ll feel safer if he immigrates to Sweden or Germany? LOL.

      That article that Bannons been “branded” with was written by a Jew. Does Mr Dummie know that?
