    DHS boss threatens ‘caravan’ border-crossers with prosecution, detention, deportation

    Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Monday warned the “caravan” of Central American migrants arriving at the southern U.S. border that they could face prosecution, detention and deportation, as President Trump called on the agency to block the group.

          WSB,
          There are a few, at least one that I read about out of 600 or so who plans on staying in Mexico. Another had gotten their citizenship for Mexico, but still wants to move on here. So I guess they cancel each other out.

          All of the articles I have read today interview the women with small children. They are a big minority, but yet those are the ones they seek out to get a few words in Spanish that they translate into English.

          Most of the caravan ended up paying for the bus tickets, which they said were the women and children. I would say, the moms and children rode the buses and the few men who couldn’t afford it or kept the cash given to them for other things, took the trains that they could jump on top of and ride for free at their own peril.

          I was wondering what the border patrol, Homeland and so forth we’re going to say and do. I’m so thankful we are not backing down.

          I say this because reading the lefty articles it leads one to assume we would have to greet them with open arms because of all of their hardships in getting here. Not a one went hungry, and I’m sure they slept well enough on the buses etc. Its not like they walked very far or anything.

          Anyways, I say good for our President Trump, I just love him!
          Be well and stay smiling,
          Ma’iingankwe

            Every woman and child should have to provide PROOF of relationship. I say this because persons who have been trafficked, both women and children, are part and parcel of gangs and cartels especially in Honduras.

            Just because people claim to be legitimate families does not make them relatives.

            OTOH, When a gang member gets a stolen woman/girlchild pregnant she may self-identify as his “wife.”

            In Honduras, belonging to a gang is a tactic for survival.

            Being female with a child in her posession does not make for instant asylum.

          They are probably living a really good life on that trip with all the funding and help from outside sources.

          If we had any so called journalism there would be a team of them wth the caravan reporting their every move.

          My wager is . they are probably staying in hotels and taking buses most of the way.

          When they get to the border, they roll around in the dirt a little, look sad, and the MSM hands out food.

          If I was in charge, when they got to the border, a whole bunch of tear gas, rubber bullets would wake them up.

          Anyway, don’t let them set one foot in our country.

          It is a disaster unfolding in Mexico. IMO, the Mexican government nurtured the illegal army’s passage through its country with the intention of creating a problem for the USA. That strategy has failed, and Mexico now doesn’t know what to do with the migrants.

          The President and Sec. of DHS have made it clear the illegals will not be accepted here when they reach the border. All of the problems of managing a large, homeless population will be Mexico’s responsibility, and they will become seriously acute as the leftist money supporting the “march” dries up. No bueno.

          A combination of bad judgement and poor planning has put our southern amigos in a very bad situation.

          Voter fraud. They’d been doing it for many years, more sophisticated with each election.

          I believe it was their underestimating the Blue State votes they needed – where they had been so used to winning – they didn’t see the movement of those citizens towards a candidate like Donald Trump – who ran more as an AMERICAN than a Democrat or Republican. Red States they knew how to manipulate, and with the media’s help, could suppress our turnout; remember the panhandle of Florida in 2000. But they really missed candidate Trump’s messaging impact on several factions in their base.

          They’re still missing it. Latest MSM reported poll has 17% of blacks supportive of POTUS – historical.

        France has always been a member of NATO. De Gaulle withdrew France from only the Integrated Military Command Structures in the 60s, but Sarkozy rejoined it in 2009.

        France’s decision to fully participate in NATO had two aims: firstly, to increase our presence and influence in the Alliance, and secondly, to facilitate renewal of momentum for Defence Europe, lifting any ambiguity as to a possible competition between the two organizations.

        France also attached several conditions to its return to the command structures:

        > maintaining full discretion for France’s contribution to NATO operations;

        > maintaining its nuclear independence: France decided not to join the NATO Nuclear Planning Group (NPG), which determines the Alliance’s nuclear policy;

        > no French force is placed under permanent NATO command in peacetime;

        > non-participation in the common funding of certain expenditure decided prior to France’s return to the command structures.

        France officially announced its full participation in the NATO Integrated Military Command Structures during the Strasbourg-Kehl Summit in April 2009. As a result, France has, since 2009, about 750 additional officer positions within the NATO Integrated Command Structures, including that of Supreme Allied Commander Transformation (SACT), which was held from 2009 to 2012 by General Abrial and is now occupied by General Palméros.
        France is the third largest contributor to NATO budgets behind the United States and Germany, ahead of the United Kingdom and Italy. In 2014, its contribution totalled €217.2 million (including the contributions of both the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development and the Ministry of Defence), 1.8% lower than in 2013.

        I think France’s withdrawal from NATO had more to do with DeGaulle’s personal dislike of the US than anything. A dislike that was fueled by the way the US tried to deep-six him during WWII first for Darlan, then Giraud. Sort of an ‘anybody but DeGaulle’ campaign. Also DeGaulle was a fierce nationalist, and he didn’t think that the US would go to war with Russia if Paris were nuked any more than he would if Washington were.

          I believe the real problems began during the Suez Crisis, when Eisenhower basically told the British and French that their days as Colonial Powers were over.

          Then came the wars in French Indochina and Algeria, and de Gaulle finally realized that Eisenhower was correct.

        With Juan you’re likely to hear the phrase: “But I think the real issue is…” or, “But I think what the American people are really worried about is…” several times in a discussion as he always, without fail, turns it back to the talking points.

      I would think one with her standing would show more respect to not only our President but the office too.

      Never have I acknowledged or written him by using only his last name. If anything, I capitalize the word President in his honor and to show my respect, whereas with the others I simply leave it without the capitalization. It’s kinda my little dig to the haters too even though I’m sure they’d never even realize it. Anyways, I just like doing it.

    Draining the swamp. As Attorney General, Jeff Sessions inherited a good chunk (but not all) of the swamp. Since taking office, Sessions has orchestrated the departure or demotion of the following swamp dwellers: James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates, Loretta Lynch, James Baker, James Rybicki, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Michael Kortan, Bruce Ohr and others whom I am forgetting right now.

    This alone is a significant draining of the swamp. In addition, he has opened up the DOJ National Security Division to scrutiny by the IG Horowitz and appointed Huber to be the prosecutor examining the criminal referrals from Horowitz and Congress. He has resolved to stop the leaks from the FBI and the DOJ. For the most part, we have not seen many leaks of investigative matters from the Huber side of the fence, and there have been criminal referrals on leaks by the people who have been let go plus Clapper and Brennan.

    Sessions is trying to restore the traditional procedures of the DOJ to not comment on investigations or prosecutions unless and until there are indictments and prosecutions commence. Civil libertarians should be happy about this. This also increases the probability of obtaining convictions in those cases prosecuted.

    The difficult part of this approach is that it takes time to put together solid cases for prosecution. This is particularly true when there appears to be such a large volume of criminal activity. Huber has his hands full. Inevitably, the cases he is examining not only include potential wrongdoing by members of the DOJ and FBI, not also the State Department and the Intelligence Community. For the later two areas, Huber is going to need additional staff not part of the IG Horowitz’ staff.

    The indictments and trials are likely to last for years, if they are done well. And Sessions is working hard to do them well. Draining the swamp will not be done overnight, but Sessions is making progress.

    SOURCES: Most Of What EPA’s Leaker Told Dems About Scott Pruitt Is ‘False’
    Former Trump campaign official Kevin Chmielewski, who’s also former EPA deputy chief of staff operations, gave congressional Democrats a list of accusations against Pruitt, detailing the administrator’s alleged “wasteful spending” and “disregard for ethical and legal requirements.”

    Chmielewski is the likely source for media reports surrounding Pruitt’s spending habits and alleged ethical lapses. 

    But many of Chmielewski’s claims have been called into question by two sources familiar with EPA’s inner-workings. One source told The Daily Caller News Foundation of Chmielewski’s claims that “more than 60 percent is false, the other 40 percent is information he distorted.”

    Heritage Foundation: 1,132 proven instances of election fraud

    At the very end of his presidency, Barack Obama instructed the nation to pay no attention to allegations of vote fraud, that such allegations were “fake news.”

    Whom are you going to believe?  Barack Obama or actual, verified data?  Such as this from the Heritage Foundation:

    The Heritage Foundation added 26 new entries to its election fraud database, bringing the searchable ledger to a total of 1,132 proven instances of election fraud.  That includes 983 cases that ended in a criminal conviction, 48 that led to civil penalties, 79 where defendants were enrolled in a diversion program, and 22 cases of official or judicial findings of fraud.

    Americans should be alarmed.  These entries represent irrefutable evidence that fraud has impacted elections in 47 states, and across all levels of government.

    Of course, the game of the Democrats is to avoid at all costs any of the safeguards against fraud, such as photo ID requirements.  That should tell anyone with integrity what they are up to.  But most media continue to ignore this stain on democracy.

    Reading the Special Counsel’s response to Manafort’s motion to the court to suppress
    evidence that the government obtained pursuant to a warrant authorizing the search of his residence located in Alexandria, Virginia. https://www.politico.com/f/?id=00000162-f569-d230-a36b-f7fd96d20002 . I came across this statement:-
    “The warrant application had not sought permission to enter without knocking. In issuing
    the warrant, the magistrate judge authorized the government to execute the warrant any day
    through August 8, 2017, and to conduct the search “in the daytime [from] 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.”
    Doc. 264-1 at 1. The government complied fully with those date and time conditions, and
    Manafort does not contend otherwise. ”

    I think it is widely believed that the FBI smashed down Manafort’s apartment door on a “no-knock” basis. It appears that Manafort has not accused the FBI of behaving unreasonably when serving the warrant and presumably there was no forcible entry by the FBI into Manafort’s apartment.

    The other item of information new to me is that the first FBI warrant to search Manafort’s storage unit was on 27 May 2017 i.e. only 10 days after the appointment of Mueller as the SC. Therefore it appears that the investigation of Manafort was well underway before Rosenstein appointed Mueller and that Mueller’s recruits such as Weissmann would not have been in place.

        Not sure how the timeline would be important ….. except perhaps if the FBI team actioning the 27 May warrant included officers who we now know were dirty e.g. Strzok etc. As far as I am aware, Manafort has not (yet?) disputed the validity of the warrants etc because of compromised officials previously in Mueller’s team.

        What also interest me in respect of the warrant to search Manafort’s apartment is the justification which included actions by not only Manafort but also his wife and Gates e.g. as an extract from my previously linked SC’s response:-
        “The Affidavit amply justified a search of that scope. It described at length facts giving
        reason to believe that Manafort and Gates had committed, among other offenses, tax crimes, violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), and money laundering through their decade-long work for Ukraine and funneling of money back into the United States. Those facts made it reasonable to seek evidence not just in Manafort’s own financial records relating to the Subject Offenses, but those of his close business associate (Gates), his wife, and companies affiliated with those three individuals. Indeed, given the tax and banking crimes among the Subject Offenses, an examination of all financial records for the period was necessary for investigators to understand all sources of Manafort’s income, whether legitimate or illegitimate.”

        With respect, I disagree with that bald statement … how would any of us know that “they” had already investigated Manafort but decided not enough evidence to prosecute.

        The first search warrant was served on 27 May only 10 days after Mueller was appointed … highly improbable that Mueller would look at the evidence; reverse a decision not to prosecute and have all the procedures completed to prepare and present a search warrant within that time scale. The warrant was processed and served by existing officials in DOJ/FBI … not new recruits to Mueller’s team.

        Also, SD has already suggested that Comey’s existing DOJ/FBI investigation team just transferred over to Mueller ….. it is much more probable that the search warrant would have been served on Manafort even if Comey had not been fired and Mueller appointed.

      Joe DiGenova’s entire segment on Tucker was worth watching. He came out swinging. He called the Muller investigation a fraud.

      Joe says Comey kept the investigation from Congress because he knew if he briefed them on it he’d have to answer questions, and he was doubtless prepared to lie since he has proven he lies easily.

    I have a fascinating story to tell Treepers.

    Several years ago, maybe 5 or 6, I made friends with an Eritrean, from the horn of Africa, who called himself Ben. Shooting pool in a dive bar in the East Bay SF.

    We became great friends. He came here legally, searching for a better life. He is a PROUD trashman. Very proud to have a secure job and the American dream.

    Well about three years into meeting him for pool, a well dressed, charismatic, I believe Palestinian, came into the bar and made friends, drank, and tried to ingratiate himself. I liked to keep to myself in an environment like that – great pool tables, cold, cheap beer so what can I say? – but I’m a big man and the big white guy hanging out with the skinny Eritrean stuck out. It was funny, actually and this Palestinian took notice.

    Ben is quintessential American. He loves beer, BBQ & good friends…and women. I mean, the pursuit of happiness and all that…believe me, he came from dirt poor. So sure, how can you not be friends?

    So eventually, This Palestinian character started working on Ben, guilt tripping him about his Muslim background and I could see Ben was troubled. Conflicted. But I said nothing. But I was boiling. Like I said, Ben is my friend.

    One Saturday night, I typically avoid them, but Ben and I were in a hardcore pool competition and it went late into the night we whipped any competition that tried to take the table so we could be at each others throats. Talked a lot of trash.

    In comes the Palestinian. With some back up and he beelines to Ben whispering his vitriol, clearly disturbing him. Although Ben and I never spoke of it, I knew what was going on.

    Let me pause, and inject the most indescribable ability for two friends to connect on an unspoken level, its man shlt but its real and Ben and I connected.

    So amidst this crowded, God knows what the hell can happen, Saturday night, in a dive bar where rednecks, blacks, illegals, you name it, are mixed but having fun and this Palestinian starts his BS.

    Well, for purely selfish reasons, I try to keep a low profile. Paid my way through college sacking QB’s on Saturdays and drunks during the week as a bouncer. So did my share.

    But this time I couldn’t take it and at the worst possible time I popped a cork and went off on the Palestinian. Without the language, I told him I knew what he was up to and to leave Ben alone. This guy was shocked. So was his crew. It was very hair raising, but they backed down and left.

    I turned to Ben and apologized. In an environment like that, you don’t jump people aggressively, publicly…never a good idea. I may have started something that Ben wanted no part of, maybe even endangered his life. Blew a gasket, what can I say?

    Ben looked at me and could not say a word, but the message was communicated.

    Well fast forward a couple of years. Trump economy has been good, just too busy to indulge in pool. So haven’t seen my buddy, Ben.

    He reached out. You know what he called me? A “motherf####r”

    He said you are”my best friend and a bad azz motherf####r”

    I’ll take it.

    An interesting piece linked below on the Travel Ban finally being heard by the Supremes. However, it is even more interesting in the broader discussion of the power of the judicial branch and the new thing that has happened in the era of Trump, which is the judicial branch consistently over reaching and attempting to take Presidential power as their own.

    About the author: Mr. Buckley is a foundation professor at Scalia Law School at George Mason University and author of “The Republican Workers Party: How the Trump Victory Drove Everyone Crazy, and Why it Was Just What We Needed,” forthcoming from Encounter.

    FTA:

    “… If everything Trump does is tainted with racial or religious bias, as the Democrats tell us, then it’s hard to see any limit to the scope of the judicial branch’s power in the age of Donald Trump. If so, what seemed like an idiotic lawsuit by the Democratic Party against the Republicans, for collusion with the Russians in the 2016 election, might in fact be a very astute move. The Dems have run out of evidence of collusion, and merely want to keep the issue on life support. And the remedy? If the election was tainted, why not a do-over? Why not an injunction setting aside an election? …”

And overwhelmingly, the newest enrollees aren’t those the system was intended to serve — the elderly and those with disabilities, among others. Instead, they’re mainly able-bodied adults.

    But now, things are changing. And they’re changing quickly.”
