    I am extremely interested in figuring out ways to convince Liberals to open their eyes. I know it’s extremely difficult, but I do believe it’s possible, if not for the staunchest of them. Today, I had an idea. I created an online survey, entitled Magic Wand Two-Question Quiz on Saving the World. It’s designed to help liberals expand their compassion out to the bigger picture. I never did one of these before, and I don’t know how to get it to display the results when you finish. Anyway, please take the and share survey, and let me know what you think.

    Anyone who has seen my comments knows that my biggest issue is the ongoing mass invasion.

    But I have a question: During the Teleprompter Presidency we were told that he “fudged” his deportation numbers by including so-called “turnbacks,” a change in the criteria. I believe that, to a certain extent into the country, turnbacks are considered acceptable.

    I don’t know what that extent is, but whatever it is, wouldn’t a quick – and generous – extension of that by our current majorities (yes, I KNOW it’s not a real majority with flakes like Flake, etc.) enable us to send invaders back out of the country as soon as they entered it without the need for a hearing? Seems like that would save us time, space, and judicial system costs.

      Feel free to correct me but this is how I believe the current law stands:
      If you are from Mexico, the U.S. can turn you back immediately
      If you are from Central America you can claim Asylum/Persecution and be placed into a detention center to await your “court trial”
      Here is the problem: Detention centers are full, full, full and they are quietly releasing detainees if they claim to have a place to go – yeah, stupid right?

      So it is the catch & detain(release) law that needs to be changed and our President is trying very hard to hammer this home…

    Caravan update.

    Just spent a few hours scouring Mexican news.

    2,385 migrants reside at new migrant camp.
    Mexican Immigration will release a full census in the coming days that will ID women/children/men
    Down from close to 6,000
    Many self deported or are living on the streets.
    Many refuse new shelter because it is far from border and is on lockdown from 10pm-7am every night by Federales

    2,800 migrants have applied for asylum in Mexico

    Based TJ Mayor has pulled police protection and city services for migrants.
    Federal Immigration has taken over everything. Federal Immigration is aimed at placing migrants in work programs with the goal of keeping them in Mexico where there is a labor shortage with 65,000 open jobs.

    Mexican Director of new camp says this will not be a snowball effect and that the migrants will be gone in 6 months or so when the facility is to be turned back over to the city of Tijuana. (Federal Immigration has leased the new location for 6 months)

    Lastly: Mexican foreign minister met with Pompeo today to discuss the Remain in Mexico plan that due to backlash now has a new name Mexico and Central American Development Plan. Mexico is begging for U.S. to chip in money to help with the plan.

    Seems very a propos to revisit this in light if the mass populist insurrection sweeping Europe right now. Yellow jackets aside, did you all see the crowds filling the streets in England and chanting/cheering for Trump? Vive les Deplorables!

    An example of why being involved in the GOP is effective. Here are pictures of ordinary men and women who got involved with the state GOP, active locally, voted into power and are now voting to close the GOP primary. They are making a difference with their time and involvement!

    The state GOP is now making sure that those who run have voted GOP in the primaries and are not new comers to the GOP or not new comers to being involved as an active GOP voters. These are all good steps.

    (No, I am not the Katherine who posted this on facebook. My screen name is a mixture of 2 great, great, great, great grandmothers who were Rev War soldiers wives and pioneer wives, crossing through Cumberland Gap and settling TN & KY. Back in the fall of ’15 when I first started commenting here, I named myself after them to remind myself to be brave in volunteer, phone calls, going to meetings, commenting here, etc. I was so shy and terrified that I need that encouragement, inspiration and perspective that what I was doing was nothing compared to what they did to gain freedom for future generations and make this country what it is. Yes, I was *that* scared of talking on the phone and terrified when going to the meetings! I even had butterflies just to post here as I had been reading here for years, had great respect for the commenters and felt unworthy and intimidated to join the ranks of commenters here. What the commenters here could figure out from pictures and internet research…Wow! Anyway, that is not me in this link

    Look at the picture – just ordinary Americans who are making a difference in TN

    Steve Hilton had a discussion tonight on The First Step Act, the prison reform bill Pres Trump is currently asking Congress to pass, Matt Schlapp had an excellent suggestion.

    At 4:05, listen to Matt Schlapp’s idea – “Next step we need, reigning in the crazy Prosecutors that have the power to destroy anybody they want.”

    What a great idea! Modify the First Step Act and include a small section that determines exactly and specifically what a Federal Prosecutor is and is not allowed to do, namely, use of parallel construction, suborning perjury, setting up perjury traps, and all the other things Mueller and his Angry Democrats have done to Pres Trump and us.

    If we cannot hold Pres Trump’s persecutors accountable, then by george the least we can do is make it so those Federal Prosecutors are never able to persecute us in this way again.


    • Dutchman says:

      Uh,….I’m pretty sure MOST of the behaviors of prosecutors that you list ARE either ‘illegal’ or a violation of the rules and regs already ‘on the books’.

      Like immigration, we don’t need more LAWS or RULES, we just need the ones we already have, enforced.

      Weisman, for instance shouldn’t have just had his team have to take ethics classes, (by Judge Ellis), he should have referred them to the BAR Association,
      to have their licences revoked.

      Part of the problem is that many of these ‘practices’ are not transperently obvious; How do you KNOW the prosecutor is with holding exculpatory evidence, before you agree to a plea bargain, for instance?

      Other part of the problem is these ‘practices and methods’ have become
      S.O.P. for ALL Federal Prosecutors.

      Their is NO WAY Federal Prosecutors can get a consistent 97% conviction rate, without such cheating. It simply isn’t possible.

      Our system was originally established with an inherent bias, favoring the defendant, in order to minimise the chances of convicting the innocent.

      Burden of proof

      Right to Council

      Reasonable doubt

      Miranda warning

      Brady rule

      Fruit of forbidden tree doctrine on admissable evidence

      These all are principles established to make it VERY HARD to gain a conviction of a guilty person, in order to make it near impossible to convict an innocent one.

      There is simply NO WAY, if ‘playing by the rules’ that ANY Prosecutor could achieve 97% conviction rate.

        And those old-fashioned, non-recorded, editable, recalled from memory, 302 impressions written by FBI agents long after interrogations/interviews. *wink,wink*


  15. Haven’t read all the comments so don’t know if this is already posted, … Brazil’s new foreign minister is very pro-Trump, and trashes climate change as Marxist ideology….

    I wonder if POTUS has seen the new Jeep pick-up trucks?

    Got this in my email and these 2020 Jeep pick-up trucks are really different. I was not expecting a pick-up truck that can be a convertible too.

    I like ’em. If they sell well……maybe Jeep can take over the GM plants that are closing.

    I dig that Jeep make their products in the USA. Very cool, they don’t forget their own people.

    Hey, GM…..suck it
