      Many misleading tweets and titles out there be careful. Click bait fake news headlines standard for the course.

      I believe this stay only affects those that are already here and being held at airports from being sent back home. The rest of the immigration ban is OK, So a stay on those that just arrived by plane and were being held at the airports where the protests were..

      The stay order does not indicate if the people held at the airports will be contained in the US at the airport or where to be held. But they can stay for now if already here and will not be sent back home right away.

      This stay should not affect those that are not already here. So it affects the transition people. Not new ones planning to come.

      We knew this battle was coming so have faith and keep fighting and be careful not to follow the often misleading headlines and tweets which will almost all be oriented to the globalists strategy now on this issue. This broke while I was watching Judge Jeanine TV show and she commented on it then.

      personally I will wait for the dust to settle and truth to come out in a day or two before I follow this much. I try not to follow click bait headlines.

    Regarding the complaints about DACA, I would like to point to these airport protests of the 90-day halt to travel from certain terrorist countries to say that Sundance was right about waiting. The numbers of people who have sympathy for the people affected by this terrorist country travel ban is much smaller than that for the DACA sympathizers.

    They would have hauled out the most photogenic people with tears in their eyes. Probably there would have been DACA kids who were Boy Scouts and honor students. Probably they would have found one who saved a policeman’s life or something.

    These travelers do have SOME sympathetic figures within them, but they are small. Let this incident play out and as more people realize that OBAMA DID THE EXACT SAME THING back in 2011, they will shut up.

    Oh, and here’s a nice backfire of the protester organizer’s PR:

    Remember scripture: “No weapon formed against you shall prosper!”

    Oregon faces 90 percent reduction in federal timber money http://www.islandpacket.com/news/business/article129345024.html
    Sen Ron Wyden’s trying to get this boondoggle re authorized. This headline is very misleading. The 90% federal timber monies drying up com s from subsidies to no longer allow loggers to have their livelihood.
    Environmental wackos stopped the logging in the 1990’s and created a financial disaster in rural counties.
    Let loggers get back to business and get our tax dollars out of the subsidies business!

      Ad after the environmental wackos stopped the logging, the EPA stepped in and has regulated the mills to the point that they can’t even do large amounts of lamination because the steam releases too much CO2 into the atmosphere.

      One way or another, the government has been determined to kill the livelihoods of the few remaining factory and mill workers who remain.

    OK. This is pretty funny. German and French Leaders exhort US to ” be good Christians and Love thy Neighbor” by accepting whoever wants to come here, no matter who they are.

    Sorry guys, Americans and Prez Trump are not as stupid as your little snowflakes over there who fell for this schtick of yours a few years back and ended up in a heap of heartache for their trouble.

    Compare and contrast the two major majority-women marches in DC in the past week. Only one is classy:

    MILO And Crew Head To Southern Border ‘To Get Started On The Wall’/
    by JACK HADFIELD 28 Jan 2017 203/

    “After speaking at the University of New Mexico on Friday, MILO and his crew headed to the southern border with Mexico in order to help start building President Trump’s wall.

    In photos posted on Instagram and Facebook, MILO and his crew can be seen loading bricks from a hardware store and posing with them in the back of a truck.

    MILO and members of his crew were later pictured, shirtless, assembling the wall.”/


    Pictures are PRICELESS/ I LOVE MILO/

    The Ryan/McConnell 200 day plan (versus 100 day plan) – side comments.

    McConnell said he is working on a daily basis with the president and his staff to map out a bold and aggressive program that both fixes the problems and mistakes left by the last administration and fulfills campaign promises made in 2016.

    “We are on the same page,” the senator said.

    For some items, such as immigration or even building the wall along the Mexican border, there are no legislative fights ahead because the laws were already passed. The wall was authorized by the Secure Fence Act of 2006 and the president is going to merely enforce the immigration laws his predecessor ignored.

    key comment–> McConnell said a major factor in moving from the traditional 100-day plan to a 200-day plan was the Senate’s confirmation workload. Dozens of appointments require Senate approval, which he said converts the Senate into the White House’s personnel office.

    –Seeker comments:
    McConnell even admits he is the backlog for the slow confirmation process. Stop being a battered conservative and get it done now so the agenda can move forward faster. Confirmation backlog is no larger than other years except the Dems are providing more stalling resistance than Repubs have ever done before. But he has the big hammer if he wants to use it.

    “In a separate presidential memo, Trump reorganized the National Security Council to, along with other changes, give [Steve] Bannon a regular seat on the principals committee — the meetings of the most senior national security officials, including the secretaries of defense and state.”



  18. Lots of feelings and emotions expressed here, but I think that be Feb 4th or so the over-done emotions will fizzle a bit!
