    I noted a couple of people saying that there is no proof that Obama met with the judge in HI

    Looks like Obama had dinner with the Judge.

    Though they don’t usually agree on much, CNBC’s Squawk Box co-anchors Joe Kernen and Andrew Ross Sorkin both praised the idea of term limits for members of Congress. Frustrated with Congress’s lack of progress on Trump’s agenda, Kernen argued that getting substantial change passed is “impossible. I think maybe you need term limits.”

    “These guys have been there for too long” he argued. Even though their constituents closely watch how they vote, congressmen “very rarely do what they consider is right” he added “all they do, is what’s going to look right.”

    Over several years for my church, along with several other people, I bought the food (with money that was provided me by the lady in charge of the program) to prepare the Meals on Wheels, cook the meals, and deliver them. No one was ever charged. It was very common that the cooks and people who delivered the meals, to buy cookies or pudding or make a cake or do something special for the people who were given the meals.
    Now we also have a ‘Backpack program” to help elementary school age children have something to eat over the weekend when they do not go to school. I have often hoped and prayed that the children were indeed getting the food. Some parents are truly awful people. Sorry, but it’s true, no matter how much we complain or watch out. I blame it on easy government handouts and drugs. The use of drugs has taken all moral inhibitions away. It’s nation wide. How do we ever go back to what we once where? Or am I looking back at the past with rose colored glasses because I’m elderly? It’s really very sad.

      Our people continue to flee and rebuild away from others. Our society sticks to the rules and traditions we find acceptable. These communities thrive and end up cursed by their own success. Once word gets out that we created a land of plenty it attracts parasitical types of people. Of course we feel sympathy for them and feed them, house them, clothe them. The first generation shows appreciation, but their offspring soon take the offerings as entitlements.

      Our problem isn’t the people who use us and the bounty our culture makes possible, but ourselves. We never stand up for ourselves and we never force people to live by the rules. Instead we start capitulating as to not upset people. So the cycle keeps going on and on. We’re running out of space to flee.

    Here’s a heart warming story that was just reported, about two illegal aliens that were “excited” to be enrolled in a Rockville Maryland High School. Note their are in “9th grade”, even though they are older than most of the seniors.

    Police said the victim was approached by the two suspects in a school hallway Thursday at about 9 a.m. One of the suspects then asked the victim to engage in sex. She refused, according to police. The suspect asked her again and then forced her into a boy’s bathroom stall at school. Both of the suspects then raped the victim inside the stall, authorities said.

    Jose O. Montano, 17 and Henry E. Sanchez, 18 of Aspen Hill were both charged with the rape of the female Rockville High School student. They are both being charged with first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sexual offense.

    Montano and Sanchez are in the 9th grade at Rockville High School.

    A judge said they were dangerous and flight risks due to the fact they have only been in this country for a couple of months. Montano came to the U.S. from El Salvador. Sanchez came here from Guatemala. The judge said Sanchez had an “alien removal case” pending.

    The young girl who was raped must be so proud of the generosity of her sanctuary city, county and state.

    That neatly ties into this story from yesterday:

    Anyone remember my post/idea way back about making repeat border jumpers more easily identifiable by removing select digits or limbs before deportation? I just had another idea…

      When this happens in Sweden, the school does not notify parents that anything has happened. School doesn’t want to “cause a stir.”


      • Schools have become unbearable. Remember, Obama forced schools to allow black males more latitude with behavior (wth), which made being a principal a challenge and set the tone for all sorts of dysfunction within school systems. It’s as if special populations have been given permission to literally rape and create havoc. Forget it. It ain’t for me no mo. I am terrified for my grandchildren with stupid parents who virtue signal about wanting a multicultural experience for the children. With all the immigrants.

        Reminds me: I suffered different strains of flu constantly. My students from Mexico would invariably return from a homeland visit and I would catch their strains of disease.

        Kinda puts that video posted about “why women destroy nations” in the Angela Merkel handshake thread in perspective, doesn’t it?

        I just said to my husband this week that I believe what’s wrong with America is generally women and what they have become and what they are doing to our country. Of course, that’s a broad brush and doesn’t mean that all women are responsible for the damage done to this nation or the wrong direction we have taken.

        That “sea” of pink hats following the inauguration surely are responsible though as well as the ones who carry ridiculous protest signs and dress up in body parts costumes and those who get in front of a microphone and yell obscenities.

        I’m ashamed of what my gender has become as they are preoccupied with free sex, immodesty and the massive display of their stupidity while they make complete fools of themselves.

    Here is the NY Post explanation for the Trump administration firing of US Attorney Preet Bharara.

    Bharara was investigating Trump cabinet member before he was sacked
    By Daniel Halper March 17, 2017 | 3:17pm | Updated

    Fired US Attorney Preet Bharara was investigating a key member of President Trump’s cabinet, a new report Friday revealed.

    Bharara was looking into allegations that Tom Price, the health and human services secretary and the administration’s point man on efforts to repeal and replace ObamaCare, improperly traded health care stocks while he was a member of the House of Representatives, ProPublica reported.

    Price maintained that he broke no laws when he traded health care stocks even as he was involved in legislation relevant to the health care sector. He traded over $300,000 worth of shares of relevant companies during a four-year period in the House.

    The issue played a significant role in Price’s confirmation process, and he was asked about it numerous times during his Senate hearing.

    The revelation that Bharara was investigating Price comes as many were surprised the US attorney from the Southern District of New York was not retained by the Trump administration.

    The then-president-elect met with Bharara after the election and during the transition period, when Trump reportedly asked him to stay on during his administration.

    But last week, Attorney General Jeff Sessions notified all leftover federal prosecutors appointed by President Obama that they would be let go.

    Bharara, however, refused to go and was fired by the Trump administration.

    Did anyone else see Lou Dobbs tonight?

    Lou had Dan Bongino on, talking to him about all these screw-ups by the Secret Service.
    Lou…”What the ___ is going on with the Secret Service!?!

    Bongino, ex-Secret Service, said that he had talked to some of his friends in the Sec Service about the ‘jumper’ at the White House…
    They told him that the ‘jumper’ had triggered several alarms, while he was wandering around the WH grounds.
    And…someone had “cleared those alarms”!!

    That means, someone in the WH Sec Service, had turned off the alarms…as the intruder triggered them!

    So, the speaker fees information on Gen. Flynn related to his RT appearance were “hacked” from RT files. Nothing too illegal about that. Must have been Putin doing that hack, too.

    This story is good because it shows that Flynn taking fees from Russian organizations was the way many America officials have. And so, too, from the other Kaspersky affiliate for a conference in Russian-occupied Washington, DC. That Putin must have invaded like he always does.

    As for Turkey’s paid fees, which are igniting consternation, he was free as a bird to accept fees from Turkey. Nothing illegal, and actually quite smart. Turkey wanted to stay within the West’s orbit after the coup, Flynn might have been a bridge for that. Instead, the CIA wanted to kill Erdogan anyway.
    The best they could do was smear Flynn.

    Now they keep denigrating him so people will think he should have been shoved out, that Pence isn’t a mole, that Pompeo will really one day do the right thing, that the Deep State isn’t an existential threat to America and Americans, and that Trump’s demise, however it comes, is justified. After all, look—Flynn!

    Wake up, folks. Power and Trillions. Nothing has changed.
