    We can only hope and pray that the vetting is stringent because it’s now 900 refugees a week says the State Department. Soon we will not recognize our country if this keeps up because the corrupt courts are in control of immigration and congress does?

      Even if the vetting is stringent and they are not terrorists, it still goes towards changing our culture long-term given low assimilation. As a country, WE are the ones assimilating to Islam, not the other way around.

    If you have a Facebook page, you will see a barrage of new fake accounts pushing fake news and twisting Ann Coulter’s account every which way but loose. I gave up here today and went to Facebook because used to be it was reliable, but no more. And Twitter is full of fake accounts as well. Thank God I can trust that the President will make the best decisions even under the worst of circumstances, so not to worry that I can’t separate fake from real news, there is so much of it! I mean c’mon, the news says Rachael Maddow was kicked off her own show and Bill Cosby committed suicide, bot Fake News, explosive of course. Hopefully Tucker is still watchable.

    Do you remember the term “Let Trump be Trump?”
    I see all of these fair weather supporters who think they know more than he does.
    I’ve been with the President since BEFORE he came down the escalator. I’ve seen him masterfully position himself out of every “he’s done this time ” drama. I haven’t forgotten that their is a brilliant mind behind every situation.

    The media has attempted to paint him as an enemy of the Syrians. An enemy of there seeking refuge. Trump knows they don’t want to be here. Trump has said in many campaigns he would create safe spaces in Syria.

    Many times in past administrations we have went into countries and committed soldiers and resources to “free” the populace.
    The difference with the President is that this is the first time in awhile that I can recall the populace, innocent civilians, hailing him as a HERO!

    Trump didn’t pick Assads side or the rebels side. He picked the civilians side. The righteous side.

    He is GOOD. I’m surprised and dismayed to see that not sink in over here.

    The tomahawk attack served so many useful purposes. Stroke of genius… and that is what I have come to expect from our President.
    Not only did it put Syria, Iran, Russia, and to a lesser extent, NK
    (my opinion on NK is that the child in charge isn’t playing with a full deck, so you can’t expect him to get the message) on notice. It put the world on notice that we (USA) are back!
    The strike also delivered many Democrats and Republicans to get behind this President. A man of his word, and a man not to be trifled with these side shows.

    Investigations by Italian authorities and others have found that NGOs funded by among others George Soros, are actively financing private ships to smuggle tens of thousands of illegal North African refugees into the EU via Southern Italy. The human trafficking is reportedly linked to ISIS smuggling networks. If confirmed by authorities, it could potentially open the NGOs to criminal charges .

      Trump is going to end him. It’s only a matter of time. But we’ve seen that Trump has an instinct about when it’s most beneficial to take action – Soros will be shut down when it brings us the most leverage in other ongoing situations.

    Look, people, President Trump is our best/only chance to stabilize this world gone crazy. We put him in office for this; now lets all trust him and march behind him covering his back. We have to stop trying to micromanage and have FAITH – otherwise, we’re no better than Congress.

    Make America Great President Trump. We’re behind you!

      I totally agree. PTrump is in the driver’s seat. He has watched and studied what has been going on in America and around the world for years. I felt sick when I first read about Syria. But, I feel President Trump has met with all necessary people, explained his plan and will carry it out. I completely support him and pray for him and our country.

  13. https://ijr.com/2017/04/843688-every-week-vietnam-vets-physically-wash-memorial-wall-today-powerful-help/amp/

    Veterans visiting the wall during the Clinton-era began to notice that the traffic to the memorial was increasing, yet it was only being cleaned once a month. It was becoming dingy. These veterans got angry and did something about it. The Washington Post reports:

    In 1998, dissatisfied with the job that the National Park Service was doing and upset that bird droppings had filled in some of the engraved names, Jan Scruggs of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund took action. He handed 37 toothbrushes to visiting vets from Wisconsin, who scrubbed the filth away.

    In order to keep the memorial in pristine condition, local veteran groups offered to help with maintenance of the hallowed ground. The Park Service agreed. Now, approximately once every weekend in peak tourist season (spring and summer), a different veteran group or community service will arrive at sunrise, long before the throngs of tourists show up, to wash the wall.

    The labor is intensive but in the end, every inch of the 247-foot wall gets sprayed down, scrubbed by hand and polished.

    Many of the men and women who show up to clean are veterans themselves, cleaning a memorial built in their honor.

    So it was on the morning of Sunday, April 9, when Virginia and Maryland chapters of Rolling Thunder rode into the memorial before sunrise. Clad in leather motorcycle gear with a colorful array of patriotic patches sewn in, a dozen members of the iconic biker club, most of them veterans, readied for an hour of washing and scrubbing the black wall.

    Today, however, they had some extra help. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke would be scrubbing alongside them.

      Best story of the day!
      Thanks, Michaele.

      What a good guy Ryan Zinke is…and a great pick by Pres Trump.
      Zinke may turn out to be our best Interior Secretary ever.

        The goodwill Zinke generates by diving in and helping is incalculable. Citizens have had enough of empty promises and bureaucratic babble over the years. If he can’t MAGA at Interior, it won’t be for lack of leadership or hard work.

        Zinke is certainly no desk jockey!

    After watching tonight’s episode of Homeland, I have little doubt that had Hillary stolen the election, our President would be facing fictions criminal charges.

    Some comments above about Liu and Kamala Harris ……it is only the tip of the iceberg about what we have to deal with in California. I keep saying someone needs to come in and audit California for financial crimes …..these people are just despicable and the NORMAL taxpayers have NO say so here. They do what thy want.

      Trump will do it in his time. He has bigger things to do first. California is a corrupted mess. Once AG Sessions gets his ball rolling, California will lose some control, which will make it easier for Trump’s admin to help us to clean up California. Auditing is a great way to start.
      This week Mulvaney is set to notify the Agencies to cut back. The screechings will be starting soon–better buy ear plugs-
      —-and popcorn—and laughter.
