The front door is normally locked but other doors usually not.      Regardless I understand the need for legal immigration already.     That said, if we had zero illegal immigration vs what we do have, I'm sure it's a net gain that we have ~12 million illegal immigrants.    More people generally means more economic activity.   You may not like the brown color of immigrants skin, but they are working hard on the whole and doing jobs neither I nor my kids are going to do.    The threat and risk is being overblown because people want a scapegoat for their own failures.

I have no problem with people of color....any color. But....I do want immigrants to come to the US legally. I want law and order in this country. As far as your comment on economic activity....you've got it backwards. The economics is blown to hell when you consider the impact of illegals as well as legals sucking off the system as in free housing, free medical, free food, free education and etc. and etc. Don't bother to tell me I am wrong because I see it every single day.....students who get free lunches and breakfasts while wearing brand new tennis shoes and cell phones of the highest caliber and their parents do not work. Why should they....when they can go to the mail box and pick up a check. They cannot speak English so the chance of being hired for anything other than landscaping and house keeping is next to zero.

Also, don't bother to call me racist. You need to know I have a Hispanic that has been working for me going on 17 years. However....he came here legally. Get it? Legally.

As far as you and your kids not wanting to do the work that illegals do? Just be patient. You're about to find out. You and your kids will be glad to do those jobs when this country goes to hell. Things are  not going to stay the same forever. You may as well get prepared because change is coming.

6 miles down, 1,949 to go.. too bad Trump sucks at negotiation and that will never happen.
I'm curious...do you lock your door at night or even during the day when you're home? If you don't you're a fool...if you do...looks to me like you would understand the need for legal immigration.

GRAHAM CALLS FOR A VOTE ON THE ‘GREEN NEW DEAL,’ BUT NOT BECAUSE HE SUPPORTS IT

Lindsey Graham

 
Daily Caller: Sen. Lindsey Graham wants Congress to put the “Green New Deal” resolution to a vote to show Americans “what kind of solutions far-left Democrats are offering to deal with climate change.”


“Let’s vote on the Green New Deal!” Graham, a Republican, tweeted Friday. “Americans deserve to see what kind of solutions far-left Democrats are offering to deal with climate change.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal is ambitious and ruinously expensive, @Noahpinion writes https://bloom.bg/2DYGDTp  via @bopinion

Graham knows the Green New Deal would never pass Congress. In fact, Democrats aren’t united behind the bill, which moderates fear will alienate key bases of their support, including unions.

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unveiled the Green New Deal bill Thursday, and Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey introduced a companion bill in the Senate.

The resolution calls for “10-year national mobilizations” to fighting global warming by eliminating all carbon dioxide emissions from all sectors of the economy, including the power industry, agriculture, transportation and every building.


 
The Green New Deal also calls for “repairing historic oppression” among certain groups and putting in place a slew of welfare programs, from universal health care to government jobs guarantees.

“So really the heart of the Green New Deal is about social justice and it’s about allowing and fighting for things like fully funded pensions for coal miners in West Virginia, fighting for clean water in Flint, and fighting for the ability of indigenous peoples to take a leadership role in, in where we’re moving as a country,” Ocasio-Cortez told NPR Thursday.

Democratic 2020 presidential hopefuls cosponsored the resolution, and it’s largely been seen as a litmus test for candidates seeking the Democratic nomination. However, House Democratic leadership panned the bill and Republicans see it as a boon to their re-election prospects.


 

 
“Every Republican in the country should get on their hands and knees and thank Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” Andy Surabian, a former White House official, told Axios.


 
Graham’s comments reflect that optimism. Republicans cast the bill as “socialist” because of its unprecedented expansion of government control.

Pepsi....do you know how I know just how disingenuous you are? Because there has not been one thing that President Trump has accomplished that you have been happy about...not one damn thing. How sad.

Many people have marriage problems, it's not a crime.   Do you know what is a crime?  Bribery, extortion, blackmail..


Nothing is a crime until it's proven....by a court of law. Not in your mind.

In The News / Judicial Watch exposes another sanctuary city

Judicial Watch's Weekly Update: JW Exposes Another Sanctuary City



The Continuing Scandal at the Los Angeles Veterans Affairs Office

You have followed our extensive coverage of Veterans Affairs officials in Los Angeles who are blatantly ignoring the needs of veterans and appear to be running some kind of business out of their offices. Despite our lawsuits, the outrages continue, as our Corruption Chronicles blog reports.
 
The Los Angeles Veterans Affairs (VA) facility that illegally rents its sprawling grounds to institutions that don’t serve veterans just evicted several groups dedicated to veterans, including a nonprofit that for decades has comforted dying vets and another that helps those who are disabled. While the VA gave the volunteer organizations the boot without offering an explanation, it continues housing a parking lot for nearby upscale shops, a university baseball stadium, a dog park for the professional dog walkers of affluent residents, and athletic fields for a fancy prep school.
It marks the latest of several scandals involving the misuse of this VA property, where a top official pleaded guilty to multiple felonies last year for taking bribes from a parking lot operator that defrauded the agency out of millions.

This month at least five established nonprofits dedicated to providing veterans with therapeutic activities, counseling and other valuable survival skills have been evicted while private businesses that don’t benefit vets remain. The Jewish War Veterans is among the organizations that just got kicked out along with Twilight Brigade, the Disabled American Veterans, Vet-to-Vet and the Association for Parrot C.A.R.E., which provides therapeutic activities for vets at its parrot sanctuary. A local newspaper reported the latest travesty at the southern California VA this week, but Judicial Watch has for years investigated, sued and obtained government documents involving the VA’s illegal use of this parcel.

The 338-acre property in West Los Angeles, which includes the National Veterans Park and Veterans Home, was deeded to the federal government in 1888 for the specific purpose of caring for disabled veterans. Thousands of disabled veterans once lived on the grounds, which also had churches, theaters, a library and post office. In the 1960s and 1970s the VA quietly closed the facilities, according to the American Legion, and ousted mentally disabled veterans. In recent years, the property has been used for many causes unrelated to veterans. Among them is a stadium for the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) baseball team, an athletic complex for a nearby private high school, laundry facilities for a local hotel, storage and maintenance of production sets for 20th Century Fox Television, the Brentwood Theatre, soccer practice and match fields for a private girls’ soccer club, a dog park, and a farmer’s market.

For nearly a decade a group called the Old Veterans Guard has filed complaints against rampant corruption at the Los Angeles campus, specifically for abusing and misappropriating VA property. The group assembled weekly and on Memorial Day to protest the VA’s failure to make full use of the facility to benefit veterans, particularly those who are homeless. The government retaliated by sending VA police to harass and intimidate them at weekly rallies. One of the group’s leaders, an elderly Army vet named Robert Rosebrock, got criminally charged for posting a pair of four-by-six-inch American Flags on the outside fence of the Los Angeles VA on Memorial Day in 2016. The fence is part of the “Great Lawn Gate” and marks the entrance to the Los Angeles National Veterans Park. Judicial Watch represented Rosebrock in the federal case, which was tried in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The court eventually ruled that Rosebrock was not guilty of violating federal law for displaying the flags above the VA fence.

Judicial Watch sued the VA Police and other agency officials for violating Rosebrock’s and his fellow protestors’ Constitutional rights. Judicial Watch has also sued the VA twice for documents related to the non-veteran use of the Los Angeles facility and obtained records that show the VA paid private businesses hundreds of thousands of dollars to reimburse them for terminating unlawful lease agreements. A 2011 lawsuit accusing the VA of misusing the Los Angeles grounds and illegally leasing the land forced the agency to make changes. As part of a settlement, the VA announced that it would dedicate the West L.A. campus to “serving veterans in need” by, among other things, designing a plan to help end homelessness among the county’s veterans. The legal settlement also compelled the VA to terminate leases with private businesses that were never supposed to be there in the first place. The records obtained by Judicial Watch reveal that the VA paid Twentieth Century Fox Television $435,000 and a construction company building an illegal amphitheater on the north side of the grounds $287,318. The television studio used 72,160 square feet of VA land for parking, storage and maintenance of production sets.

Just a few months ago a federal audit exposed rampant fraud and corruption involving the illicit land sharing agreements made by crooked VA officials in Los Angeles. Judicial Watch launched an investigation into the deals and has three Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests pending.

This is a classic case of a bureaucracy busily serving its own needs and perpetuating itself to the detriment of the people it was created to help.


 
San Diego Plans to Hire “Immigration Affairs Manager
 

The immigration crisis can be handled through enforcing the rule of law or kow-towing to open borders lobby with lawless sanctuary polices and related spending. San Diego chose the latter path. Consider the latest, again, from our Corruption Chronicles blog:

The Republican mayor of the nation’s eighth largest city is dedicating $70,000 to hire an “immigrant affairs manager” that will help facilitate a successful integration of refugees and immigrants. The goal is to implement the orders of a community-written blueprint that aims to welcome immigrants as they transition into the city. Known as the “Strategic Plan on Immigrant and Refugee Integration” the document was created with the input of open borders groups, residents and a “cross-sector steering committee” that direct city officials to skirt federal law.

It is unclear how much taxpayer money California’s second largest city, San Diego, will end up spending to accommodate immigrants. Mayor Kevin Faulconer announced the new $70,000 position this week at a press conference on the grounds of a local museum dedicated to celebrating America’s cultural diversity. “The preservation and presentation of the immigrant experience in the United States is our central commitment,” according to the museum’s website. At the press conference Faulconer, who previously served on the city council, said this: “Immigrants from around the globe help define our city. San Diego has long been a destination for people in search of opportunity, refugees looking to rebuild their lives, and new citizens who are proud to call America home. San Diego’s economy, workforce and future growth are connected to our ability to welcome new Americans into our community.”

Let’s take a look at the proposals in the integration blueprint that the city’s new immigrant affairs manager is supposed to help implement. They include creating economic opportunity for immigrants, tweaking education to accommodate them, granting them inclusive access to taxpayer-funded services, improving civic engagement, and safe communities. The city is supposed to facilitate the career advancement of immigrants through job placement, rights protection, and inclusive recruitment. This is to include promoting immigrant entrepreneurship, financial literacy among newcomers, and the reduction of barriers toward home ownership. Not sure how that’s going to happen since San Diego is one of the nation’s most expensive cities to live in with among the highest home prices.

The plan also calls on the city to enhance a multicultural curriculum in kindergarten through high school for “newcomer students” and remove barriers to existing education programs. That means developing a curriculum that includes ethnic studies, immigration history, cross-cultural competency, and anti-bias and tolerance education. The integration blueprint also demands free tuition at public colleges for immigrants. Inclusive access means the city must expand language access to ensure public services are “user-friendly and culturally-responsive.” To promote civic engagement among immigrants, San Diego officials must develop immigrant and refugee leaders and increase naturalizations and civic participation among new and aspiring Americans. To create a safe community for immigrants, law enforcement must be properly trained to serve “multilingual and multicultural communities,” the document states.

Under the plan, consular identifications, common among illegal immigrants from Mexico, will be accepted across city agencies. Other forms of “foreign citizenship documents” will also be accepted, according to the recommendations. Local police and all city officials will also shield illegal immigrants from federal authorities. This appears as advocating for policies that help protect and advance the rights of immigrants and refugees at the county, state and federal level. “Oppose policies that target or profile immigrants and endanger their status,” the strategic plan states, referring to deportation. The list of demands goes on and on and it appears elected officials in San Diego plan to meet them. “It’s important our communities here in San Diego know they don’t stand alone,” said City Council President Georgette Gomez. “Our policies and actions must reflect a city that is welcoming. I look forward to working with the Mayor and my colleagues to help implement the plan.”

Do we all get to choose which laws we will obey?
 
Until next week …

the problem with you is you go by whacky right wing nut job conspiracies not facts.   Clinton has been investigated for years by Republicans who if they found a crime would have brought that to light.   

It's been brought to light....repeatedly. No other person on the face of the earth could get by with using bleach-bit and disposing of over 30 thousand e-mails...after which a hammer was taken to the computers. If you or I did that we would be indicted.

Because the owner of the tabloid is David Becker, longtime friend of Donald Trump.   Same guy who paid to squash negative stories about Trump's infidelity with a porn star and a playboy bunny.  Same guy which is cooperating with the SDNY investigation into those campaign finance law violations.   

a big question to me is how did the National Enquirer get the photos of Bezos.

Being a friend of Donald Trump does not mean Trump is guilty of anything.

Always.

 I have never seen where you have called your side out for their indiscretions. According to you the left has never done any wrong. America could be going down the drain and you would have a cheer leading session for the Dems. Hillary and Obama had baggage galore but you upheld them every time. Admit it.

Pepsi......Might be wise to wait until all the facts are in. But, if this is indeed the case.....all perpetrators need to be indicted. Can you or have you ever said the same when your side is in the hot seat? No? I didn't think so.

A friend of mine sent me this e-mail that she received from one of her friends. I wanted to share it with you folks....here it is!   GHQ
************************************************************************************

An open letter to President Trump and First Lady Melania;
Dear Mr. President, Sir, I confess, I was skeptical of you at first. I voted for you only because I could see what a disaster for America the alternative would be.
In the first 2 years of your presidency you have performed better than I could have hoped in my wildest dreams.
You are the first president in my lifetime who has kept the promises you made in your campaign.
Many presidents talked moving our embassy to Jerusalem. You did it . Many have talked tax cuts, you did it.
Many talked strengthening our military, you did it. And the list of the good things you have done for America goes on and on.
How you could achieve so much good for America, while battling a do-nothing Congress, and a left wing anti-American media is nothing short of amazing.
Sir, there is much left that needs done, so I humbly ask you to run again in 2020. Mr. President, there are many millions of meat eating, Bible believing, freedom loving Americans who appreciate what you are doing for us. Thank you!
Dear First Lady Melania, Wow, what a welcome change you have brought to the White House.
Your beauty and your intelligence; your elegance and quiet dignity; your faith in God and your love of America all set a high example for our daughters and grand daughters to aspire to.
I know it must be very hard to watch your husband constantly attacked by the viscious opinion shaping media, but we need him for another term.
And so, I humbly ask you to sacrifice another 4 years for the good of our nation.
And now for both of you. In South Dakota, the buffalo is a symbol of strength and perseverance.
We get some viscious storms here, with snow measured in feet, and winds of 50-60 mph.
Cattle will turn tail to the storm and drift with the wind until they pile up in corners, trampling each other.
In contrast, the buffalo faces into the storm, and holds fast until the storm passes.
I think there is a lesson here.
As soon as the storms come, the congress turns tail and drifts with whatever direction the political wind blows.
In contrast, President Trump faces into the storm and perseveres to overcome it.
My hat is off to you Sir. And, Melania, millions of Americans love and appreciate you.
God bless you both. We're praying for you!
