    With all the hostile rulings by judges against President Trump’s rights on keeping his tax filings and bank records private plus the state of New York’s push to release President Trump’s state tax records; it appears to be a very concerted effort at this time to impose pain on Trump and his family because I believe our President will release records ( through proper procedures) at some point which will conclusively make clear that the countries that claim to be friends with the US are not our friends. But at present it seems to be such a fight over the direction of the country and our own lives that the image is of corrupt people and institutions in their rage pulling others ( meaning us) with them over the cliff. Our President might be made a pauper even as he does or tries to accomplish what he told his voters he would do. I like the prayers for him and his that I read on this site.

    Received this from Judicial Watch today:

    Feds Use DUI Arrest Records to Catch Illegal Aliens Released by Sanctuary Cities

    Illustrating how sanctuary policies shield dangerous criminals, federal agents captured 141 illegal immigrants in just a few weeks simply by using fingerprints from local drunk driving arrests in one region of the U.S. The operation took place recently in New England, well known for protecting illegal aliens from federal authorities by offering sanctuary through local policies. This includes the entire states of Maine, Vermont and Massachusetts as well as cities in Connecticut and Rhode Island.

    In all the cases the illegal immigrants were released into various communities after driving under the influence, according to a high-ranking federal official quoted in a news story published this month in Boston’s conservative newspaper. The official, Todd Michael Lyons, is the deputy field director for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Boston and he says local judges and prosecutors are helping illegal immigrants dodge deportation by not reporting drunk drivers to the feds.

    “We saw a large number of people with charges dropped down,” Lyons says in the article, adding that “it’s frustrating” and happening throughout New England. “Driving under the influence is a dangerous threat regardless of what country the offender is from,” the ICE director says. “It’s even more disturbing crime when it’s committed by someone who has no legal right to be in this country.”

    Among those nabbed in the recent sting, coined Operation: Secure Streets, were a Kenyan national living illegally in Lowell, Massachusetts with pending rape, robbery and strangulation charges. Others include a Honduran in Boston accused of selling cocaine and a Ukrainian in Cambridge with multiple drunk driving convictions.

    A previously deported Salvadoran man living in Malden with aggravated assault on a police officer and forgery charges was also arrested in the recent operation as well as a Guatemalan man in New Bedford charged with aggravated assault and wanted for resisting an officer. The Salvadoran man, identified as being 43 years old, also helped a prisoner escape, according to the feds. In a similar sting last year, federal agents arrested dozens of illegal immigrants in the region wanted for dealing drugs.

    Local governments that offer illegal immigrants sanctuary have long defied federal orders by releasing criminal aliens—rather than turn them over for deportation—incarcerated for state crimes. In one recent year alone, ICE reported that sanctuary jurisdictions protected nearly 12,000 criminal illegal immigrants throughout the U.S.

    During that period more than 17,000 federal detainers were rejected by the sanctuary jurisdictions and around 11,800, or 68%, were issued for individuals with a prior criminal history. In the last few years however, some local governments have taken it a huge step further by actually passing local measures to help illegal immigrants charged with local crimes escape federal custody.

    Among them is New York where a few years ago the attorney general issued legal guidance to help municipalities throughout the state provide sanctuary for illegal immigrants. It set a dangerous precedent because it marked the first time a top law enforcement authority, a veteran elected official, actively encouraged and assisted local governments to violate the law.

    Nearly a dozen New York municipalities— ranging from sleepy towns like Newburgh to larger cities such as Rochester as well as Albany, the state capital—followed the directive to skirt federal law. Of interesting note is that the attorney general (Eric Schneiderman) who issued the outrageous order resigned in disgrace after being accused of physically abusing four women. The Democrat lawmaker had “made a name for himself as a champion of women’s rights,” according to media reports.

    Circling back to the New England region, a few months ago a district judge in Newton, Massachusetts and a court officer got criminally charged for helping an illegal immigrant escape out of the basement door of the Newton District Court. The judge, Shelly M. Richmond Joseph, and court officer, Wesley MacGregor, were federally indicted with conspiracy, obstruction of justice and aiding and abetting.

    Judge Joseph allowed the illegal immigrant wanted by federal officers to escape in order to avoid deportation, according to the indictment. The judge reportedly assured the illegal alien’s attorney that she was not going to allow ICE agents into her courtroom to arrest and deport his client.

    We were almost able to use 529 plan funds to home school our children. It was passed by the committee but was the stripped from the bill.

    But we will get to purchase in our 401k plans the worse form of investment called annuities ( heavily lobbied for )

    They call it the Secure Act

    “Section 204 gives a safe harbor to 401(k) plan sponsors who select so-called lifetime income products, another word for annuities, to appear among offerings to workers. This would mean that, if an employer picks an annuity provider and it goes out of business or rips off workers, they would not be able to sue the employer afterward. That could incentivize companies to find fly-by-night annuity providers that give good deals to the companies for business, making their money by ripping off the firm’s workers before filing for bankruptcy.

      Observance of federal law has become optional in multiple situations. IMO, worse than the act of defiance is the absence of consequences for doing so.

    Rats have taken over New York City. Instead of scuttering into alleys and sewers, they’re out in broad daylight and are infesting restaurants, apartment buildings, playgrounds, even inside cars.
    Meanwhile, BILL DE BLASIO is running around saying that he’ll do to the rest of the country what he did for New York City if he’s elected President in 2020.
    So here’s a campaign poster for De Blasio:

    P Trump’s press conference was well done but the fact that he was compelled to give it is very frustrating. When the Weissmann/Mueller Dossier was released, I suggested the Trump side must counter the WM Report with an official Rebuttal Report. A cadre of top defence lawyers should’ve presented the Rebuttal Defense argument to the public via a press conference and then handed out copies to the press. (also online in pdf.) But we were told a rebuttal wasn’t necessary. These defense lawyers should’ve been retained to discredit the continued Dems lies in the media but today in late May POTUS has to have a press conference himself to defend the indefensible lies and deceptions that the Dems have been peddling and piling up almost unabated for months.

    A number of randomly, scattered Guiliani (and a few Sekulow) and other interviews on the MSM were considered sufficient to counter the W/M report. This decision was a big mistake IMO, as the Dems, the media etc continued to make outrageous claims and accusations from the W/M report without any rebuttal in most cases. No wonder the Dems feel emboldened as they’ve been building a 2nd phase Insurance Policy almost at will. Weissmann’s dirty tricks are still being used against Trump. Today’s press conference will now have to be repeated often until either Trump is ousted or impeached or the vicious, malicious Dems lose big in 2020. The voters of the USA will have their country’s bright or dismal future in their hands once again in less than 2 years.

    Not having steady WH press conferences and other major events to gain the higher political ground or better position first on issues might also be having an adverse effect. PDJT’s Twitter account is great but i can’t do it all alone.

      I am assuming 2019 wall funding will not be awarded until early 2020 at the earliest! That means 2021!
