New York’s Senator Chuck Schumer certainly didn’t waste any time “calling for immediate hearings with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and other top officials to learn more about President Donald Trump’s private meeting on Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin.”
But interestingly enough, Schumer not only enjoys a tasty Krispy Kreme doughnut with his good goomba Vladimir Putin, he was caught on camera bowing to the Russian president.
The #Resistance and #NeverTrump crowd has long considered the fired ex-FBI director James Comey as their very own saint who suffered martyrdom for their very (liberal) salvation.
But when Comey went full circle with his “I hate Trump” narrative, he found himself hoisted on his own petard, which is just a real fancy way of saying he made himself look very, very stupid.
This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that “Ambition must … counteract ambition.” All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall. Policy differences don’t matter right now. History has its eyes on us.
However, Brian Fallon, current CNN commentator and former Press Secretary for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 run for the presidency, shot back a seven-word response that pretty much sums up the Democrats opinion of the man who Hillary blames (among dozens of others) for her loss.
Three cheers for Las Vegas police officer William Umana. It was Officer Umana who, in the words of Sheriff Buford T. Justice, was in high-speed interstate hot pursuit of two murder suspects on the mean streets of Lost Wages.
Fidel Miranda was shot and killed by police July 11 during a chase that started after a man was killed. Miranda and Rene Nunez, who were taken into custody alive, sped away from police and fired 34 rounds at the officers in pursuit, according to Fox 5 Vegas.
That turned out to be a fatal decision for Miranda because Officer William Umana responded by firing 31 rounds from his Glock handgun. The video of the pursuit and gunfight is one the craziest things you’ll ever see on the internet.
Four women were caught on surveillance video of an Applebee’s restaurant in an Atlanta suburb of beating, and eventually slashing with a knife, a waitress who accidentally bumped the knee of one of the four as she served them their dinner.
As seen in the video report from FOX5 Atlanta, things actually turned uber-violent when the server accidentally brushed-up against the same offended customer’s knee a second time.
With an obvious physical appearance belying the fact that all four of the thug women could stand to skip a meal or twenty, the felonious clean plate club in unison attacked the hapless waitress.
Applebee’s staff and a handful of patrons were seen on the video attempting the impossible, separating the half-ton plus of violent femmes from the waitress, who appeared to weigh all of a buck and a quarter.
Only when someone shouted, “The police are coming!” did the Flab Four casually retrieved their purses and waddled out of the restaurant.
But prior to exiting, one of the ass-a-plenty assailants took a swipe at the waitress’s arm with a steak knife.
To add insult to injury, the hungry, hungry hoodlums also swiped from the server’s apron somewhere between $200 to $300 of her tip money.
The Rio Grande Valley Section of the US Border Patrol reports that as USBP agents were attempting to rescue a pregnant women who was making an attempt to illegally enter the United States, the very same agents found themselves pelted with rocks.
Rio Grande Valley Sector agents observed a group of illegal immigrants climbing a tree to attempt to climb onto the Progreso Port of Entry bridge on Saturday. The agents observed two people on the bridge and a woman who appeared to be in distress at the base of the tree, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials.
Agents said the woman claimed to be pregnant and was suffering from back pain. As the agents started emergency medical treatment on the woman, one of the subjects began to throw rocks from the bridge.
The Weslaco Station agents quickly moved the woman to a safe location and continued taking care of her until a local ambulance arrived and transported her to a hospital where she will be evaluated and treated as necessary before being turned back over to Border Patrol agents for processing.
The attackers were not apprehended as they quickly fled back across the bridge into Mexico.
As seen below, KGTV of San Diego reported in 2015 of hundreds of Mexican nationals made a concerted effort to bait the USBP by throwing stones, then making mad dashes for the border, to then retreat back to the Mexican side.
Event: Embassy personnel are still under a Shelter in Place order. Roadblocks are continuing to pop up throughout the city and being manned by people throwing rocks. Some roadblocks have armed demonstrators that will shoot at vehicles trying to run through the roadblock
Actions to Take:
• Shelter in place. Do not attempt to travel at this time.
• Avoid protests and any large gathering of people.
• Do not attempt to drive through roadblocks.
• If you encounter a roadblock, turn around and get to a safe area.
Event: Due to continuing demonstrations, roadblocks, and violence across Port-au-Prince and throughout Haiti, U.S. citizens should continue to shelter in place. Do not travel to the airport unless you confirmed your flight is departing. Flights are cancelled today and the airport has limited food and water available.
In true diplomatic-ese, the embassy failed to paint a true picture of just how bad things really are.
Fox News is reporting of deaths caused by out of control Haitian police;
At least three people have been killed, including two protesters who were fatally shot by authorities and a security guard who was beaten to death by demonstrators after attempting to disperse a crowd by firing his gun into the air.
In the meantime, United Press International is reporting of direct threats against Americans;
Demonstrators tried to set fire to a Port-au-Prince hotel where about 120 Americans and 100 Haitians are staying. The protesters also tried to penetrate security and enter the hotel, which among the guests include children and missionaries.
UPI also cited;
Fires were set to police stations in Gonaives and Carrefour on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince and gunshots were fired during demonstrations in the capital city and town of Cavaillon.
Haiti’s Prime Minister Jack Guy Lafontant on Saturday appealed for calm and announced a temporary stop to the price increases, which were rise by 38 percent. Diesel prices were to go up 47 percent and kerosene by 51 percent.
The fuel hikes were part of an agreement between the Haitian government and the International Monetary Fund as part of an assistance package. The country could lose up to $96 million in budgetary support from international donors if [either party] fails to meet the agreement.
In 2004, the United Nations took it upon themselves to embark on a military occupation of Haiti with an initial military force of 6,700 troops. As cited from UN documents, the globalist organization even cited that the Haitian transfer of power was in keeping with their constitution, but still invaded, nonetheless;
“taking note of the resignation of Jean-Bertrand Aristide as President of Haiti and the swearing-in of President Boniface Alexandre as the acting President of Haiti in accordance with the Constitution of Haiti.”
During the United Nations military occupation of the Caribbean nation from 2004 until 2017, officially tagged the United Nations Stabilization Mission In Haiti (UNSTAMIH), there were at least 5,000 soldiers and police officers from dozens of member nations running the country under the UN banner.
While troops came from such diverse nations ranging from Canada to Nepal to the Philippines, the bulk of the solders were from Brazil and Chile, and the UNSTAMIH commander was always a Brazilian army general.
The high water mark for deployed troops reached a whopping 9,000 in 2007 when lynching’s became a commonplace occurrence, as noted by the BBC.
In 2007, the BBC also reported of a major battle between 700-800 UN troops and a street gang known as “The Evans” that took place in the largest slum on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince, Cité Soleil, population 300,000.
In 2010, a cholera epidemic swept Haiti, afflicting 812,000 Haitians, killing an additional 9,600 as reported by the Miami Herald.
The BBC cites “the source of the outbreak was a Nepalese peacekeeping base, whose toilets contaminated the Artibonite river…”
There were also a number of rape scandals perpetrated by UN troops against Haitian citizens, usually children;
The only things out-flapping their mouths were the sheer number of back-boobs, ass-flab and navel-gazing-nipples.
Making its way across social media as well as the hard-leftie Establishment Media is a cellphone video of a handful of 1960s rejects who took it upon themselves chide Senate Majority Leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell, as he dawdled his way to his SUV.
Not that I have any support or sympathy whatsoever for the top RINO in the upper chamber, I do, however, bemoan the utter lack of civility and class regarding the political Left.
Obviously caught at the special moment when their oral cavities weren’t filled with sticks of butter or frozen lardsicles, the crowd (numbering almost as many as a dozen individuals, or 30 people by sheer weight) could be heard wheezing their way through “Where are the babies?” or “Abolish ICE!” along with “We know where you live.”
As I see these folks cankle-deep into their childish antics, two questions come to mind;
Adversaries of the British Army’s SAS (Special Air Service) find death awaiting them in the most creative ways.
Quite possibly, these special operators may consider dispatching their enemies with the standard bullets, bayonets, and bombs to be somewhat passé.
After all, it was just a few short weeks ago that the British MoD (Ministry of Defence) decided to make public that an SAS sergeant stationed in Afghanistan killed six Taliban, three with his pistol, then the remainder with a claw hammer.
Now the word on the street is that an SAS war dog single-pawedly thwarted a jihadi ambush in Syria.
While the ISIS Islamists once controlled nearly half of Syria, the terrorist organization is now reduced to holding a smattering of villages in the nation’s north and east.
It was during a six-man SAS sweep of a nondescript village in the north of Syria that a yet to be publicly identified Belgian Malinois became a one-dog army.
The Belgian Malinois is closely related to the German Shepard. Both breeds are favored by the military for their fierce loyalty to their handlers as well as their savage ferocity in battle.
As the bumper sticker says, “Don’t Mess With Texas”. Besides having an express lane to the Pentobarbital Ride at HuntsvilleLand State Penitentiary, the average Texan is fairly well armed.
Twenty-two time loser Ricky Wright, 36, had to find out the hard way.
As it turns out, Michelle Booker-Hicks of Dallas must have had her Mamma Bear instincts kick-in when she witnessed Wright attempting to steal her SUV.
Did I mention that her 2 and 4-year-old toddlers were in the back seat?
It was then that Booker-Hicks somehow managed to get into the vehicle’s backseat, assumedly while still moving. Amazingly enough, from the backseat she reached into the glove compartment to snag her pistol.
At that moment in time, Wright found out what it was like to be shot in the head.
The mother, who does not want to be identified, left her children in the SUV while she ran inside the convenience store. Before she returned a man jumped into her vehicle and tried to drive away, but the woman saw what was happening and jumped in the back seat.
The woman told CBS 11 News she tried to get the man, later identified as Rickey Wright, to stop but he refused. At that point she was able to open her glove box, pull out a gun, and shoot Wright in the head.
“I should have just have emptied the whole clip but I didn’t. I didn’t. I just wanted to give him a warning shot that was it,” she said. “I’m not a killer or anything like that, but I do believe in defending what’s mine.”
The mother said she had just put the gun in the SUV hours before after her husband helped her with reloading. “I told him that I needed some bullets for my gun and he told me that he was going to go get it.”
Wright crashed into a light pole and was later taken to a local hospital. Thursday morning he was said to be in serious but stable condition. As he recovers the mother wanted to tell Wright something. “I wish I would’ve killed you, if I didn’t already,” she said.
Wright has been charged with two counts of Unlawful Restraint and Unauthorized Use of Motor Vehicle. Court records show he has been arrested more than 20 times on a variety of charges — including unauthorized use of a vehicle, possession of marijuana, evading arrest, assault and theft.
President Trump will be winging his way to Europe next week, reportedly to demand that the leaders of the majority of NATO member nations start kicking-in their previously agreed upon 2 percent of their GDP to their NATO commitment.
To date, only the United States, the United Kingdom, Greece and Estonia have paid their dues in full.
In fact, it’s been the US that’s been doing all the heavy lifting.
Despite the US being just a single member, American taxpayer pays between one-fifth to one-fourth the total operating costs to protecting Europe from a possible Russian invasion.
Just in Fiscal Year 2010 alone, the United States dropped nearly three-quarters of a billion dollars on NATO ($711.8 million).
Even our stalwart British allies, who voted to leave the EU not all that long ago, have verified they’ll saddle-up with Team Euro Excitement Squad (or whatever the hell they’re called).
In spite of the EU swearing up and down they have no intention of starting a standing army for the European, there are 18 “Battlegroups”. Examples include;
The Nordic Battlegroup (Sweden, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Ireland and Norway)
Battlegroup 42 (United Kingdom, Lithuania, Latvia, Sweden and the Netherlands)
The Balkan Battlegroup (Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Cyprus and Ukraine)
Visegrád Battlegroup (Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Ukraine)
Speaking strictly for myself, if the member nations of the EU so desire to create their own armed forces, that’s their call. But for the life of me, I just don’t understand why we continue to pump billions of dollars for the defense of Europe, especially in light that the Berlin Wall came down decades ago.
Maybe President Trump will fix that once and for all.
Like tens of millions of Americans, I’m of Irish blood. Suffice it to say, it pains me to state that the Irish Republic has already past the point of no return.
Since the disastrous Second Vatican Council, Ireland has long since abandoned its Catholicism
Joining the Irish armed forces means you’ve really signed up with the United Nations’ Ministry of Defense
A huge majority of Irish citizens literally danced in the streets to celebrate killing the next generation of Irish men and women
The fond feelings many Americans of Irish lineage have in their hearts belongs more to the likes of Michaleen Oge Flynn of The Quiet Man fame, or Father Charles O’Malley crooning his way through “Too-Ra-Loo-Ra-Loo-Ral“.
Well, maybe watching Jerry Plunkett slugging his way through German lines under the watchful eye of Father Duffy could kick-start the heart of any 5th generation Irishman pining for the Auld Sod.
But in all fairness, that Ireland never really existed. With that said, seeing how far Ireland has degraded itself to secularism, atheism and multiculturalism makes me sometimes scratch my head in disbelief.
After all, there must have been at least a kernel of truth to those tales we were raised on. But you’d never know it by looking at Ireland in the 21st century.
Case in point, as reported by Virginia Hale of Breitbart London, Ireland’s first openly homosexual prime minister, Leo Varadkar, recently bemoaned the crisis facing Europe.
No, not the hundreds of thousands of usually illiterate and unskilled so-called “migrants” from the Middle East and Africa. His complaint is with those pesky Europeans who have the bad manners to love their respective nations.
As reported by Hale;
Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar has declared that the crisis facing the EU is not mass immigration, but European resistance to importing large numbers of migrants from the third world.
“This isn’t so much a migrant crisis as it is a political crisis,” the Irish Taoiseach (prime minister) said of disagreement within the EU over how to deal with illegal immigrants arriving to the continent.
“Europe needs migration,” he insisted, claiming the belief that hundreds of thousands of migrants from the world’s poorest countries arriving in boats and storming the EU’s frontiers is a problem that has been invented by right-wing parties for political gain.
Asserting that “the number of migrants crossing into Europe is a fraction of what it was 3 years ago”, Varadkar said the real issue facing the continent is the rise of patriotic parties which are opposed to endless mass migration from the Global South and demands that every EU country be required to take part in resettlement.
“But we have a political crisis because of the fact that anti-immigration and populist parties have been very electorally successful in Italy and central [and] eastern Europe.
Interestingly enough, Varadkar is also the second Irish PM not to be full-blooded Irish.
Éamon de Valera (his father was Spanish) was Ireland’s PM on three different occasions during the 1940s and 1950s. Varadkar’s father is native to Bombay, India.
Conor Berry formerly was employed by The Republican newspaper of Springfield, MA. But as I said… formerly.
On the heels of Jarrod Ramos being arrested for the shotgun murders of five people in the offices of the Annapolis newspaper, the Capitol Gazette, Berry sent out a tweet that looked an awful lot like breaking news.
Berry deleted the tweet after an editor from his paper saw it and demanded that the tweet be deep-sixed. However, the posting was seen before the deletion and screenshots soon began appearing on social media.
By Friday, Berry went back to Twitter to announce that his newspaper career had come “to a screeching halt,” The Hill reported.
Folks, My 21-year career as a “journalist,” a fancy term that makes my skin crawl, frankly, came to a screeching halt yesterday with one stupid, regrettable tweet. Can’t take it back; wish I could. My sincere apologies to all good, hardworking reporters and to POTUS supporters.
In spite of Berry’s multiple mea culpas, his apologies fell flat when he again took to Twitter to explain himself;
In one of the comments on his announcement, the now former reporter insisted that his original MAGA hat tweet was supposed to have been taken as sarcasm and cynicism, but it was “interpreted as fact. It was not fact. It was fiction.”
Despite Berry’s none-too-subtle insinuation that the killer is a Trump supporter, questions have arisen if Jarrod Ramos is a Democrat or Republican.
As it turns out, Ramos is so apolitical that Maryland records note his political affiliation as simply “Unaffiliated”.
Nonetheless, even though it’s an inanimate object, the now famous MAGA hat has somehow managed to “trigger” snowflakes everywhere, even in far-off prairielands of Canada;
It’s been said that in Las Vegas, you can lose all your cash in no time flat.
But if paranormal researcher Joshua Warren is right, you might be able to hold on to your cash for 0.000 020 (20 microseconds) seconds longer.
As reported by the CBS affiliate KCAL of Los Angeles, self-described “paranormal researcher named Joshua Warren claims he is the first person to ever discover a time warp, which he found near the city.”
Of course, to placate the conspiracy-minded;
Warren said he has been measuring the rate of time all over in areas between Las Vegas and the top secret Air Force site known as Area 51. Last week he found a spot in the desert just north of Vegas where he claims time has slowed down.”
Using what’s known as a “differential time rate meter,” also known as a “DT meter,” he claimed that for the first time ever he was able to record a measurement showing time had been slowing down for 20 microseconds — something that laws of physics prove should not occur.
To give an idea just how short a microsecond really is;
One million microseconds make a full second.
3.33564095 microseconds – the time it takes for light to travel one kilometer in a vacuum
One thousand microseconds make one full millisecond.
There are 1,000 milliseconds in a full second.
To completely circle the globe at the equator, light would take 134 milliseconds.
It would take the average human between 300 to 400 milliseconds to blink
For the truly OCD numbers geeks, there’s the attosecond, which is one quintillionth (0.000 000 000 000 000 001 ) of a full second.
Every once in a while, the good guys win. Or at lease make a valiant effort to thwart the bad guys.
That’s exactly what happened in London today, when four black-clad and helmeted thugs on scooters (minus manhood points already) attempted to rob a mother with child, reportedly of her jewelry.
Reporter Liam Deacon of Breitbart London notes that British TV personality Amanda Holden is the responsible party of telling the world what happened on Sandpits Road, in the Richmond area of SW London.
Obviously fearing for her life, the young mother grabs her child and runs directly into traffic to escape the would-be thieves.
Thankfully a handful of knights in shining armor in work clothes grabbed metal pipes off of their work truck and gave chase.
So this I know is happening everywhere but this was Sandpits Road Tw10 -21st June 12;35 broad daylight. Mother and child attached. And some #Heroes in a lorry chased them off. Call 101 or 999 if u know these scumbags.. pic.twitter.com/eOQObkBqQk
In the meantime, Deacon also cites that under London’s Labour Party mayor Sadiq Khan, “thefts on mopeds and bikes have increased by 2,138 per cent in just two years in parts of central London.”
Also reported by Deacon;
Richmond Upon Thames Police said in a statement: “Police were called at 12.35pm on Thursday, June 21 to Petersham after a woman was approached by four men on a black moped and motorbike who demanded her jewellery.
“They threatened her and a young child who was with her. No injuries were reported. No weapon was seen, although it was intimated. Members of the public went to the woman’s assistance and the suspects fled empty-handed. The suspects were all wearing black clothing.”
No arrests have been made.
But in all fairness to the London Bobbies, they are on the cutting edge world-wide when it comes to so-called hate crimes;
For those who follow this sort of thing, it’s not exactly a big shocker that the US Army has been at the cutting edge of social engineering for decades.
For us old enough to remember the crippling effects of “McNamara’s 100,000,” many wondered if the US military would ever survive Lyndon Johnson’s SecDef Robert Strange McNamara lowering the standards to allow into the armed forces “men with criminal records, medical defects, social maladjustments and psychiatric disorders.”
Nonetheless, the Army welcomed the substandard, the mentally unfit, and the patently stupid with open arms. Another high (low) point for the Democratic Party.
Anyhow, suffice it to say the Army is now on the cutting edge of:
Normalizing the sexually confused
Unwed mother ducking deployments
Trailblazing the way for boys-who-think-they’re-girls and girls-who think-they’re-boys
Commissioning BLM extremists as officers
Pay no attention to the fact that the Army paid for Pvt Bradly Manning’s sex change treatment while in a guest at the Cross-Bar Hotel (AKA: Ft Leavenworth), or that Beau Bergdahl, of Obama’s famous “I’ll give you a slew of terrorists for one deserter” fame, was actually kicked out of US Coast Guard Boot Camp very early in training due to “psychological reasons”.
The Army was more than happy to recruit this mental defective. But hey, maybe the Army was running short of ballet dancers.
Many have openly wondered if the Army would ever shake its self-induced SJW madness.
Maybe they finally have.
While under the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations, the Army focused on small groups of highly trained special ops troops to take on the likes of ISIS, the Taliban, Boko Haram, etc.
But with the fall of the Soviet Union just a handful of years before the War on Terror, the US Army was, well… pretty much out of a job.
Instead of protecting ungrateful Germans from never-ending numbers of Russkie armored and mechanized infantry divisions hammering through the Fulda Gap, the new Army mission was to take up the battle standard of political correctness.
Bubba and Hillary could not have been happier. But along came Donald.
Fighting will now take precedence over dealing with transitioning transgender troops, drug abuse and other issues as the Army seeks to overhaul its training regimen to hone its soldiers’ battlefield skills.
In a series of servicewide memorandums approved by Army Secretary Mark Esper and Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and obtained by The Washington Times, service leaders are making optional previously mandatory training on issues such as transgender transition and drug abuse. The move, Army leaders argue, is designed to relieve stress on the overburdened troop training regimen and refocus on soldiers’ ability to fight in combat.
Army officials are codifying the new marching orders into servicewide training guidelines and doctrine, which will bring the Army more in line with the Pentagon’s new National Defense Strategy, Col. O’Grady said.
The strategy, which was one of Defense Secretary James N. Mattis’ earliest policy initiatives, shifted away from the George W. Bush and Obama-era strategies dominated by battling extremist groups including al Qaeda, the Taliban and Islamic State, and putting the priority on challenging traditional nation-state rivals such as China and Russia. It also placed a greater emphasis on increasing lethality in conventional combat operations.
Along with scaling back noncombat training mandates, service leaders are also extending the time soldiers spend in infantry training. Soldiers graduating from the nine-week basic training course will now spend an additional two months in “advanced individual training” before heading to their first duty stations.
Additional combat training after Recruit Training but before shipping out to PMOS (Primary Military Occupational Specialty) school is something the Marine Corps has been doing for decades.
Unfortunately, the opinion of the Border Patrol’s union doesn’t meet the standards of a prosecutable law.
Very few things in life would make me happier than to see Peter Fonda cooling his heels for a few day in the Park (Montana) County Jail. Especially if they threw his ass amongst the GP (general population). If there’s one thing cons do well, it’s how to take care of those who threaten violence upon children. Continue reading Border Patrol Union labels Peter Fonda ‘Domestic Terrorist’→
This isn’t your father’s Democratic Party. You can say that again.
So what is today’s new and improved Democratic Party up to?
Defends those poor, mistreated ISIS killers
Refers to NRA members as “terrorists”
Protects the integrity of MS-13
Openly advocates for Hamas
Labels Republicans as “deplorable”
Booed the mere mention of God at the DNC a few years ago
The latest from the Jackass Party is that while the Trump Administration feeds, clothes, educates, provides medical treatment… all in a safe and sanitary setting, the Democrats openly lie of what’s happening.
The Democrats have described these facilities as throwbacks to Nazi death camps. Does the below picture look anything like Auschwitz? Hardly.
The New York Times quoted DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen correcting the fake news report that 12,000 minors were separated from their parents. In actuality, the vast amount of children held in protective custody of government officials came to the border via a third party, in other words, human traffickers;
The vast majority, vast, vast majority of children who are in the care of H.H.S. right now — 10,000 of the 12,000 — were sent here alone by their parents. That is when they were separated. So somehow we’ve conflated everything. But there is two separate issues. 10,000 of those currently in custody were sent by their parents with strangers to undertake a completely dangerous and deadly travel alone.
Secretary Nielson recently claimed that human trafficking is a $500 million per year business. As the Washington Post noted;
The math is pretty simple. A Homeland Security official explained that the agency assumed that transnational criminal organizations receive an average of $5,000 per person smuggled, a number based on interviews with undocumented immigrants who are caught. DHS apprehends about 300,000 people a year who try to illegally cross the border each year, so the agency took one third of that number — 100,000 — and multiplied it times $5,000, yielding a figure of $500 million.
According to the staff at Casa San Diego, only 10% of the kids there were actually separated from their parents. 90% of those residents were trafficked, sent across the border alone. This house is similar to Casa Padre in Texas. It’s the largest government contracted Youth Center in the nation. One of the dozens funded by you, the US taxpayers.
Of those astronomical numbers who made the trek with human traffickers, Ingraham also cited an interview she conducted with US Border Patrol Agent Hector Garza, when she asked of the conditions these children deal with at the hands of the human traffickers;
So we see on a daily basis Laura, we see these kids being abused on the Mexican side. We know when some of these female children come across, their parents send them with Plan B medication because they are expected to be raped along the journey when coming through Mexico, Central America and that’s horrific.
Ingraham also noted what the human traffickers to with these children as soon as US law enforcement officials are within sight;
On of our border agents from Texas last night revealed that he’s seen on many occasions that when border patrol approaches a ‘family unit’, the so-called parent, who ends up not being the parent, just drops the child runs.
And while the Democrats give a wink and a nod in approval to the modern-day slave traders, the number of women and girls raped by the “Coyotes” is simply put, sky high. As the reliably leftie Huffington Post noted;
According to a stunning Fusion investigation, 80 percent of women and girls crossing into the U.S. by way of Mexico are raped during their journey. That’s up from a previous estimate of 60 percent, according to an Amnesty International report.
This year alone, immigration authorities expect more than 70,000 unaccompanied minors to come through the United States unlawfully…
Here’s the truth of the matter; there aren’t any “unaccompanied” children headed from Central America to the US-Mexico border.
Slavers (aka: “Coyotes“) are the ones making tons of cash while plying their trade.
And the Democrats look the other way, instead, salivating at the sight of probable future Democrats crossing the border. Illegally, I might add.
From October through May [of 2018], the Border Patrol apprehended 32,372 unaccompanied minors, up about 1,300 from a year earlier.
The tens of thousands of children that cross over illegally to the United States is a problem that was alive and well during the Obama years, but widely ignored by the Establishment Media. As CBS News reported;
In fiscal year 2015 there were 39,970 children apprehended, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection statistics. That figure increased by about 33 percent in 2016 (59,692), before declining in 2017 (41,435). For fiscal year 2018, there have been 32,372 unaccompanied children apprehended, on pace to surpass 2017.
While the Democrats are making political hay from their often quoted “Nazi” comparison to Team Trump, I say shoot back.
Trump and his subordinates need to tell the American people the truth: The Democrats are complicit in the 21st century slave trade. End of story, full stop, period.
Arguably the Queen of Hoosegow Hotties is Meagan Simmons, a Florida wife and mother of four. Popped in 2010 for reckless driving, TheFW.com noted;
“I don’t think it’s that good a picture,” Simmons added, disagreeing with the general consensus on the mug shot. “There are other ones I would prefer.”
Simmons explained she prepared for the now-famous photo by “crying her eyes out.” (Hey, whatever works.)
According to the former Hooter’s waitress, she’s been contacted by people all over the world. And it turns out men like a bad girl because there have been marriage proposals and offers to pay her bills.

Now the Left is in meltdown over illegal alien minors being separated from their illegal alien parents.
Never mind that the legal precedent was signed into law under Barack Obama. Amazingly enough, there wasn’t a whole lot of outrage from the same Leftie-scum.
While I’m at it… ask your favorite #NeverTrump crybaby exactly how many illegals they happen to provide refuge to in their own homes? As we all know, the answer will be zero.
Again, while I’m at it… ask the same #NeverTrump crybaby if they happen to have a functioning front door to their apartment, home, mansion, whatever. Of course, they’ll say that obviously they have a functioning front door to their apartment, home, mansion, whatever.
Then ask them WHY they even bother having said functioning front door?
It’s quite amusing watching the lights slowly come on.
Anyhow, enjoy this flashback to the Blunder Years of Barry Obama;
The Norwegian government has extended the invitation to the Trump Administration to slightly double the number of US Marines to participate in the Scandinavian version of “extreme cold weather training”.
If accepted, the number of Leathernecks involved in the six-month long training cycle would jump from approximately 300 to a whopping 700. And this has the Russians seeing red.
The Russian Embassy in Norway warned of “consequences” after Norway invited up to 700 U.S. Marines to the country.
“We qualify them as clearly unfriendly and they will not remain without consequences.”
Not quite done whining over a battalion’s worth Marines, the Russkie rant continued on with the warning that the mere presence of the Marines would lead to an “arms race and lead to destabilization of the situation in northern Europe.”
Possibly missing something in the translations from Russian to Norwegian to English, the insult/threat leveled at the Norwegians seemed to lack some oompf;
We believe that security in Europe must be equal and indivisible. It can only be built on the basis of respect for genuine national interests, mutual respect and cooperation. The better you see it in Oslo, the better.
For 65 years, the United States has maintained a military force in the Republic of Korea (ROK) that’s always numbered at least in the tens of thousands.
It’s time to bring that to an end.
Of the 28,500 American troops, the overwhelming majority are of the US Army, scattered throughout the nation on dozens of bases, both minor and major. There is also a sizable minority of US Air Force personnel stationed at Osan and Kunsan airbases.
The only others would be a smallish US Navy supply base at the end of the peninsula (in Busan, the ROK’s second largest city), and a microscopic US Marine Corps administrative and liaison facility in Daegu.
With all that aside, one of President Trump’s campaign promises was to start bringing our troops home. The Republic of Korea would be a great place to start.
I’m not advocating this because I’m a dove. I’m anything but.
And while it’s debatable if the South Korean people want us on their soil, it’s a sure bet we aren’t needed there.
On the heels of President Trump’s successful first meeting with NoKo dictator Kim Jung-un, don’t buy off on the liberal media’s hyper-ventilating that without US troops in-country, somehow South Korea is “wide open for invasion!” as I’ve recently heard some twit over at MSNBC breathlessly claim.
As previously stated, we have slightly under 30,000 members of all branches of our armed forces stationed in the Republic… but do you know the size of the ROK military?
Active duty strength alone stands at nearly a two-third of a million (625,000). Reservists number 5.2 million. That’s right, I said million.
Not bad for a nation roughly the size of Minnesota.
In fact, the everything military website GlobalFirePower.com ranks the ROK as the 7th most powerful military force on the planet.
In spite of Japan’s post-WW II constitution forbidding an offensive military, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is doing his level best to amend such. And besides, Japan has one of the most technologically advanced navy and air force, not just in the Far East, but anywhere.
But back to Korea. To add insult to injury, the four million man ROK armed forces isn’t even commanded by a Korean.
A hangover from the Korean War, the United Nations commander of all allied forces in South Korea was and still is an American general.
Yeah, I know I’m ahead of the power curve on this one, but I think our president is a shoe-in for the next Nobel Peace Prize.
I’m also of the opinion that in light of the Nobel’s recent history, President Trump very well may consider the Nobel medallion itself little more than a glorified doorstop.
As we all remember, the Nobel committee selected Barack Obama as the 2009 recipient. And Obama’s qualifications? Well, he wasn’t George W. Bush… and that’s all those pussy Europeans considered important.
Anyhow, I think our president should accept when he wins the Norwegian honorific for his efforts to evade World War III on the Korean Peninsula.
Upon his acceptance, I certainly would consider it as Trump’s crowning glory if he were to accept in the name of our fellow American citizens in the Mariana Islands chain, as well as Otto Warmbier.
As everyone remembers from last summer, North Korean government-controlled media specifically threatened the US territory of Guam with a nuclear strike.
As the reliably leftie Independent newspaper of London noted;
North Korea is reviewing plans to strike US military targets in Guam with its medium-range ballistic missiles to create “enveloping fire,” according to state media.
The governor of Guam, Eddie Baza Calvo, posted an address early Wednesday morning on YouTube, telling island residents not to worry.
“I know we woke up to media reports of North Korea’s talk of revenge on the United States and this so-called newfound technology that allows them to target Guam,” the governor said. “I’m working with Homeland Security, the rear admiral and United States to ensure our safety, and I want to reassure the people of Guam that currently there is no threat to our island or the Marianas.”
Directly north of the American territory on the Marianas chain is the United States Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas (CNMI).
While most State-Siders don’t even know that the Marianas Islands are 100 percent American, both Guam and the CNMI are a whole lost closer to Pyongyang than Washington, DC (2,000 miles vs nearly 13,000 miles, respectively).
As Gov. Calvo (R) informed the Commander-in-Chief that not only the residents of Guam, but also those in the CNMI know what it’s like to be “targeted”.
All Americans knew the feeling of being within range of NoKo ballistic missiles, but our fellow Americans on the Marianas probably wouldn’t even have enough warning time to even take cover.
It’s no small wonder that thousands of the Chamorro gathered at towns and villages up and down the chain to publicly recite the Rosary asking for celestial intervention.
A more than worthy co-recipient would be the late Otto Warmbier.
As the president noted post-summit, it was young Otto that the catalyst for the two leaders meeting in the first place. As reported by NBC News, Trump credited Warmbier untimely death for making the talks possible;
“Otto Warmbier is a very special person and he will be for a long time in my life. His parents are good friends of mine. I think without Otto, this would not have happened,” Trump told reporters at a Tuesday news conference in Singapore.
“Something happened from that day, was a terrible thing. It was brutal,” the president added. “But a lot of people started to focus on what was going on, including North Korea. I really think that Otto is someone who did not die in vain. He had a lot to do with us today.”
Warmbier’s parents, Fred and Cindy, issued a statement Tuesday, “We appreciate President Trump’s recent comments about our family. We are proud of Otto and miss him. Hopefully something positive can come from this.”
The summit, where Trump and Kim signed a joint statement agreeing to pursue the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, was held on the anniversary of Warmbier’s release.
Warmbier, a 22-year-old University of Virginia student from Ohio, was imprisoned in North Korea in March 2016 after he was arrested for taking a poster from a hotel he was staying in while on a tourist visit to Pyongyang and sentenced to 15 years of hard labor.
However, he was released by North Korea on “humanitarian grounds” in June 2017 and sent home in a coma, where doctors described his condition as “unresponsive wakefulness.” He died days later on June 19, and it is still not known what exactly killed him.
