    Call it On or Call it Off? by Victor Davis Hanson

    FTA:
    “Will America, nine months into Donald Trump’s unexpected presidency, continue to chase its tail while a nuclear Korea looms, tax and immigration reform are pending, and the country is torn apart by identity politics—or will it return to sanity?…

    Republicans will perhaps learn that the most effective defense against the Russian collusion mania is a much greater investigatory offensive into the unethical behavior of the Clinton and Obama machines.

    Only then will the country learn whether the progressive investigatory apparatus will keep calling it on—or strike a deal and finally call it off.”

          Bingo to both. We the people who voted to MAGA and drain the commie swamp in DC understand 100 percent that Ryan is working hand in hand with his commie pals like Gutierrez and that McConnell is a RINO coward not fit to clean toilets.

          The media including FOX NEWS! are colluding 100 percent to destroy Trump by any means necessary. They hate him and us for interfering in their scheme to make us all slaves of the New World Order.

          The Republican Party is now one man and we the people. It’s clearer than ever that we will soon have to call ourselves another name. President Trump is great at timing and we are getting closer and closer to the day when he breaks free from the RINO Party with the support of the 65 million ‘deplorables.’

          The Leftist commies along with their RINO useful idiots are just hoping one day some whack job like the one at the Alexandria baseball field comes along and does their dirty work for them and assassinates Trump.

          God willing it does not happen and God keeps our President safe but if it does every one of these Hollywood freak demons and black idiots on cable denouncing Trump plus Ryan, McConnell, Waters, the CBC, the leftist deranged pundits and anyone who called for Trump’s demise will have blood all over them.

          The cold anger of we the people is increasing as we see BLM surround the Jefferson statue at UVA and the authorities in that doomed city standing by doing nothing. The leftist mayors have been strategically placed in major cities and they are calling the shots.

          For example, The new mayor in Richmond is McAuliffe’s protege and worked side by side with him in his corrupt company that stole millions. No one knows how this 35 year old black dude from nowhere suddenly got enough votes to win against much more seasoned opponents. McAuliffe no doubt rigged the election.They both should be in jail but guess what? One is the governor and the other is here to allow antifa and BLM to start taking down statues.

          Sick and tired of being sick and tired of this nonsense.

    The NY Daily News is about as leftwing of a Commie rag as you could hope to find. So imagine my surprise to read this editorial:

    If Bob Menendez is guilty, boot him: No place for a senator on the take

    “New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez stands trial in federal court, credibly charged with trading lavish gifts for government favors.

    If convicted, he must be swiftly ejected from office by a bipartisan vote of his peers — never mind the collateral damage to the Senate Democratic caucus of which he is a part when Jersey’s governor, currently Republican Chris Christie, gets to tap a successor.

    Minority Leader Chuck Schumer ought to waste no time making that ethical standard clear…”

      Perhaps NY’s Uniparty will run some faux Republican against him, figuring to cash in on the trend of voting Republican in the wake of, or should I say the aftermath of, Barack Obama.
      Andrew Cuomo has a history of this sort of political manipulating, and he hates de Blasio.
      Remember, Michael Bloomberg went from Democrat to Republican to nothing, to further his political career.
      I consider New York, home of Tammany Hall, the Albany Democratic machine, and the most corrupt legislature in the country, to be the birthplace of the Uniparty.

        Naw they’re too stupid. NY has always been crawling with Demonrat rubes. The Uniparty was born when RepubliCONS became Deep State double agents. That ocurred in John McStain and Bush’s territory. They infested DC and then spread their tentacles into other areas via Federal funds. Demonrats are always happy to pocket the dough, but are definitely not smart enough to control it. They are merely the whores to republiCON’s pimps.

        The mayors are ;leading the way. The mayor of Charlottesville is a commie leftist like De Blasio and his sidekick is a pervert black guy who started this a year ago.

        While we were focusing on Obama for the last 8 years Soros was using his billions to install leftist mayors in cities all over the U.S.

        The police have been ordered to stand down against antifa and BLM in order to keep food on the table and a roof over the their head. Ever since Obama began the national war on police in 2008 when he called the Cambridge police ‘stupid’ and interfered with local police departments by using his DOJ to order new training techniques the police cannot enforce the law, unless it’s to protect the thugs.

        The aim is to destroy law and order and then make us all slaves of the commie one percent. It’s been 100 years in the making and has finally come to the surface.

        No “if” about it.
        The evidence has been pouring out of the Balkans for months.Solid documentation, photos, et al.

        Syria is the greatest CIA catastrophe in decades. It is also CENTCOM’s most noticeable battlefield disaster in the Middle East. It has lost its proxy armies (ISIS, AQ) and soon, al Nusra and the SDF(yes, the Kurds + some Arabs).

        To compensate, this nexus of CIA and Pentagon warmongers intends to continue with insurgency warfare all over Syria, thinking that Russia won’t be able to stay and carry out its political resolution after the big battles are ended in Deir ez Zor and Idlib.

        Ostensibly, it is to frustrate Iran’s aspirations. However, the war loss in Syria is a loss of geopolitical hegemony. Turkey has been lost to NATO and Western inclusion. It now looks East to Eurasia and sees itself as protector of Qatar in the ME. The Israel-Arab coalition frayed and shredded without accomplishing anything. Israel hoped for the destruction of the Assad regime and the division of Syria into many pieces. That failed. And now Syria has Iran-Russia-Turkey-Hezbollah-Lebanon coordinated against terrorists, separatists, and local threats of invasion from Israel-Arab forces.

        So, what does Langley and the Pentagon do in the face of these realities? More weapons to leftover radicals to prolong the agony of Syria and maybe to ignite the war Israel really longs for in Lebanon and the Golan.

        None of these hegemonic moves by US government (a Tyranny by any definition of the term) will be good for Americans. These are the moves that Trump promised he would end.

    Been watching season 7, “The Walking Dead.”…..Two things come to mind. First, our countrymen struggling each day to get back on their feet in Harvey and Irma’s wake. Courage and resilience, fear and sorrow. Imagine with these twin natural disasters the death toll in say, the Philippines. It would be horrific.

    The second childish thoughts are twofold: 1) the infected Dead lying on the ground — Democrats, MSM; and 2) our own “supporters” still walking, zombie-like with outstretched arms, snarling, growling, “DACA, The Wall, DACA, The Wall…..” Massive self-deportations, aggressive operations, enforcement and deportations by ICE “making The Wall less necessary.” This last statement reassures most folks that SO MUCH is being done. Gee, and here we thought that MASS deportations was not possible …..

    But the Walkers begin snarling, “DACA, The Wall, DACA, The Wall…..” as if this statement implied that The Wall is no longer needed. The word “less” is meant to convey real progress, winning. The Walkers change the world “less” to “not”, aaaand, they are off and running, er, Walking. The Walkers are inconsolable — “DACA, The Wall, DACA, The Wall……” While Rick, I mean Trump, bangs the fence to attract The Walkers, his TEAM is cleaning up the neighborhoods, making them safe again, and all under the Media’s hysterical radar.

    What will Hope Hicks use to distract The Walkers once The Wall is actually built, you ask? Oh golly, there’s so many things that will distract them. Just shout, “mueller”, “Sessions”, “McMaster”, “Jared”, “Ivanka”……and while the Walkers take the bait, The Trump Team cleans up and MAKES AMERICA GREATER THAN EVERY BEFORE.

            In August Trump45 gave no indication he was/was not keeping DACA and in September Trump45 let it end as per Obama’s end date of 9/5/18. Only applicants already in the system will be processed, no new applicants accepted. There is no six month deferral on ending the program b/c it is being phased out, just six months for congress to do something with the ones already in the system.

              You are right that Trump did nothing in August (no indication), which is how I interpreted the comment you quoted above from Gheen. I understood that Trump by not taking a stance by August in his administration regarding the lawless Obama EO, illegals had been more encouraged to enter. Yes, in Sept., things changed and Sessions made his announcement. Which I admit I don’t fully understand. I am fully aware that Trump is capable of making his promises happen- and that they may not seem obvious and may even seem alarming (tweet regarding “taking care of things if Congress doesn’t” regarding DACA), at times.

              I will try to research your comments about no new DACA applicants accepted. If that holds true in practice, and those new illegals are returned to their home countries, I will consider that a major step in the right direction. I’m very interested in what the actual border practices are right now- because I’m not really seeing news of deportations or different ways the “children” and others are handled by border patrol. Thanks for your input.

                If you’ll read it again you’ll see it plainly says Trump45 retained the program. No, he didn’t and in August had given no indication one way or another so it’s not a true statement. What Trump45 had said is that his decision would come in September. If Gheen had chosen to include that information his statement would not have been misleading. And what did Trump45 do with DACA in September? He ended it. That was an alarmist August article. That’s all it was/is. Also, DAPA was ended in June which would lead people to think the border is still open, come on in? I don’t think so.

                To help with your research (it was all over the news plus Sessions official statement is on the DOJ website):

        WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s Department of Homeland Security had planned nationwide raids to target 8,400 undocumented immigrants later this month, according to three law enforcement officials and an internal document that described the plan as “the largest operation of its kind in the history of ICE,” an acronym for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

        But after NBC News reported the plans late Thursday, the agency issued a statement saying it had cancelled nationwide enforcement actions due to Hurricane Irma and the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey.

      Apparently the crossings have steadily been increasing over several months. This article says nothing has really changed on how these illegals are processed. The initial drops in crossings were due to fear, but now it is known that nothing real has changed.

            Attorney General Sessions Delivers Remarks on DACA

            Tuesday, September 5, 2017

            Remarks as prepared for delivery

            Good morning. I am here today to announce that the program known as DACA that was effectuated under the Obama Administration is being rescinded.

            https://www.justice.gov/opa/speech/attorney-general-sessions-delivers-remarks-daca

            And the article posted on this same page of comments with Trump45 “promise of amnesty” in the title isn’t anymore valid than what Kathy is spreading. In fact, your comment nullified her attempt at an argument. Trump45 has made no promise of amnesty for anyone and with no new DACA apps being accepted there is no reason for any border jumpers to think they’ll get to stay. I do have an opinion as to why the illegals keep coming, but it has nothing to do with anything discussed on this thread thus far and I can assure you we have Generals keeping an eye on it.

    Trump punishes sanctuary countries, halts visas for nations that refuse to cooperate on deportations
    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/sep/12/trump-punishes-sanctuary-countries-halts-visas-tho/

    The administration imposed visa sanctions Tuesday on four countries that have refused to cooperate in taking back their immigrants whom the U.S. wants to deport, making good on one of President Trump’s campaign promises.

    State Department officials said the sanctions begin Wednesday, halting issuance of at least some categories of visas to would-be travelers from Cambodia, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Eritrea.

    “The Secretary of State has ordered consular officers in Eritrea, Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Cambodia to implement visa restrictions effective September 13, 2017,” the department said in a statement provided to The Washington Times. “The Secretary determined the categories of visa applicants subject to these restrictions on a country-by-country basis.”

    The law allows for all visas to be halted to any country that refuses cooperation, but the department decided to impose less-draconian penalties in each of the four cases.

    Bottom line:
    This is a first level threat. It mostly just applies to gov people for now. This is like increasing sanctions strategy till they behave.

    Christians beat FEMA, and in so doing, tame Big Government
    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/sep/12/christians-outpace-fema-aid-hurricane-victims/

    Faith-based groups — Christian nonprofits, specifically — have been busy bees of late, providing more aid to hurricane victims than even FEMA, the federal agency that’s supposed to swoop to the scenes of natural disasters, assess the situation and speed the recovery and rebuilding process.

    Just goes to show: Where charity exists, government is not needed.

    Look at this, from the Daily Caller: “Faith-based relief groups are responsible for providing nearly 80 percent of the aid delivered thus far to communities with homes devastated by the recent hurricanes.”

    The piece cited USA Today, which ran a headline: “Faith groups provide the bulk of disaster recovery, in coordination with FEMA.”
    Imagine that. When disaster strikes, it’s Americans — specifically, Americans of faith — who lend the quickest hands, who provide the most assistance.

    As USA Today noted, the Seventh Day Adventists took charge of disbursing bottles of water, diapers, clothing and other material needs.

    The United Methodist Committee on Relief sent out the after-disaster work crews to help with cleanup — which includes everything from pulling mud from homes to assisting victims file their claims forms to government and insurance entities. The Convoy of Hope helped feed the masses, arriving on scene in the south with trucks upon trucks of food, even before Irma hit. Samaritan’s Purse, the Rev. Franklin Graham’s organization, brought everything from food to chainsaws. Post-storm, the same group will help victims rebuild their homes.

    And while FEMA is on scene, too, it’s the Christian groups and faith-based organizations who’ve taken the lead.

    Seeker –
    My brother and I are active in the Methodist relief efforts. We have always preferred to donate our money and time to religious relief groups as they are much more efficient with the money.

    “College Park, Maryland, will allow noncitizens to vote in local elections. The city council passed the measure on a vote of 4-3. It came after a summer filled with heated debate. The measure applies to green-card holders, undocumented immigrants and those with student-visas.

    “This is the most important way to show all residents have a say in the community we share together,” said Todd Larsen, one of the dozens of people who spoke to council members ahead of the vote. “Allowing all people to vote in municipal elections is going to make College Park more inclusive.”

    “A true democracy allows the affected community to vote on measures that impact them,” said Elaine Grant, another supporter of the measure.

    1. Do you believe you have a “right” to go to another country?
    2. Do you believe you have a “right” to go to another country and stay there illegally?
    3. Do you believe you have a “right” to go to another country illegally, and to commit additional crimes?
    4. Do you believe you have a “right” to go to another country illegally and to work in that country whilst there illegally?
    5. If you have answered “NO” to question 2, 3 and 4, then what do you think should happen to you if you do such things?
    6. How many times have you been abroad, and how many times did you enter that country illegally? If the answer to the second part is “never”, then why not?
    7. Do you agree that it is a “human right” to be allowed travel documentation from your nation of birth?
    8. How many articles have you written, or speeches made, to confront nations who do not provide documentation to their citizens that would allow them to enter another country legally?
    9. To enter a country illegally, why would someone provide $5000 to a people smuggler and take a long and hazardous journey to cross a border illegally, rather than catch a considerably shorter and more comfortable and safer $350 flight, and just not return home?
    10. Do you believe in the rule of law?
    11. Do you believe that the law should apply differently to different groups of people?
    12. Do you believe in equality among people?

    In fact, I hear very very few ask such questions. Ever. In fact, I never have. They can’t be that incompetent. They are just not interested in highlighting such questions.

      Hey Hillary Rotten Clinton-

      Thank you for showing us ALL you are still an IDIOT.🤦‍♀️😐#CantFixStupid

      I’ll answer the question, “What Happened?” Answer: The election of “The Don” was the biggest middle finger to the establishment DC elite in American political history. Trump is what you get after 8 years of limp wristed, feckless American hating leadership. What did you expect?

      Progressive, modern liberals, and the collective leftist angry horde….You lose! You will always lose in the end. Your capacity for understanding and truth is skewed by your inability to grasp reality. Anyone who values a delusion above reality will always find a way to keep their vision alive…your ideology overrides your intellectual grasp on the facts. You hold fast to your ideology because it makes you feel safe, or important. Your priority is not what’s right, but rather what you desire to be right. When that delusion is confronted with reality, you find a way around it.

      You have prioritized yourself, and your self-worth, above actual results. In essence, you are intellectual cowards. Americans who understand America’s exceptionalism created a tidal wave to wash away Barry’s legacy. A legacy of appeasement, apathy, and apology. We stuck a fork in it…DONE. We didn’t want more of the same from YOU, forcing it down our throats.

      Why would anyone want a political system that restricts personal freedom instead of enhancing it; denounces personal responsibility instead of promoting it; surrenders personal sovereignty instead of honoring it; attacks the philosophical foundations of liberty instead of defending them; encourages government dependency instead of self-reliance; and undermines the character of the people by making them wards of the state?

      One thing leftists hate most is being called out on their rampant and unbridled hypocrisy. The left does not believe in equality. The left believes that by inscribing themselves special victimhood status it gives them a free pass to engage in the kind of hate, violence, and intolerance that they themselves rail against anyone who challenges their views. It’s about emotions and feelings, over common sense and real solutions. Emotion driving reason. Look around. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

      I’ll leave you with this…”At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child…miserable as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats.” ~P.J. O’Rourke

    ‘Rigged’ Awan Judge Appointed By Obama After Giving Thousands in Campaign Cash; Her Husband Appointed a Judge by Obama Too

    Posted on September 13, 2017 by Investigative Bureau

    “It’s rigged from almost every angle,” a frustrated FBI insider said.

    “That’s because the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia — Channing Phillips — who is running point on the case is likewise a Democrat, appointed by President Barack Obama. Phillips was appointed just months before the grand jury convened to weigh evidence in the Awan case.

    FBI agents fear Phillips — now backed by the federal case judge Chutkan — has cleverly rigged the Awan case to protect Obama, Lynch, Holder and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. This likely includes the dozens of Congressional Democrats the Awans served as IT specialists.

    The explosive Awan case could also possibly implicate Obama as well as former attorneys general Holder and Lynch. Those tenets have not been lost on veteran federal agents with knowledge of the evidence unfolding in this complicated case against a family of alleged Pakistani IT gurus.

    FBI agents said the U.S. Attorney Phillips in D.C. is like protecting Holder, Lynch and Obama “depending how deep this mess is.”

    “He may have been appointed for the sole purpose of quashing this case,” a FBI insider said.”

        Tucker Carlson took down the article from the Daily Caller, and subsequently Mickey Kaus quit in disgust over the agenda-driven editorial decision. Apparently some things are just too sensitive for sunlight and exposure.

        However, what Mickey Kaus outlined was a pattern within Fox to push immigration reform and included a first person excerpt between David Axelrod and Rupert Murdoch:”
