THE HILL – TAX BILL

Obstacles emerge as GOP races to tax finish
A revolt from two Republican senators concerned about the Child Tax Credit and the absence of two more Republican senators because of illness has injected fresh uncertainty into the GOP’s tax bill push.

The Senate was expected to vote first on the $1.5 trillion tax package, but that is now in doubt as GOP leaders aren’t absolutely sure they’ll have enough votes early next week to pass it.

The Hill Net Neutrality

FCC ENDS NET NEUTRALITY RULES: The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Thursday voted to repeal its landmark net neutrality protections, capping off a months-long campaign by the agency’s Republicans to deregulate the broadband industry.  The FCC voted 3-2 along party lines to scrap its 2015 Open Internet Order as Democratic lawmakers and dozens of activists protested outside.
In a dramatic moment, the meeting was abruptly evacuated in the middle of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s remarks ahead of the vote.
Reporters and attendees were forced to exit the hearing room and leave their belongings as police brought in K-9 units to sweep the room. Attendees were allowed to re-enter the room within 15 minutes of the evacuation.   The FCC declined to comment on the reasons for the evacuation.
Democrats, consumer groups and tech companies have been rallying for months to try to stop the repeal plan, arguing that the rules are essential for preventing companies like Comcast and Verizon from abusing their powers as internet gatekeepers.   “As a result of today’s misguided action, our broadband providers will get extraordinary new power from this agency,” said Jessica Rosenworcel, a Democrat on the commission who voted against the repeal.
“They will have the power to block websites, throttle services and censor online content. They will have the right to discriminate and favor the internet traffic of those companies with whom they have pay-for-play arrangements and the right to consign all others to a slow and bumpy road,” Rosenworcel said.   Despite the outcry surrounding his repeal proposal, Pai was unwavering in his opposition to the 2015 rules. Since his time as a minority commissioner under the Obama administration, Pai has argued the FCC overstepped when it imposed the restrictions.   “Following today’s vote, Americans will still be able to access the websites they want to visit. They will still be able to enjoy the services they want to enjoy,” Pai said during Thursday’s open meeting. “There will still be cops on the beat guarding a free and open internet. This is the way things were prior to 2015, and this is the way they will be once again.”

Comey edits revealed: Remarks on Clinton probe were watered down, documents show

Newly released documents obtained by Fox News reveal that then-FBI Director James Comey’s draft statement on the Hillary Clinton email probe was edited numerous times before his public announcement, in ways that seemed to water down the bureau’s findings considerably.  Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, sent a letter to the FBI on Thursday that shows the multiple edits to Comey’s highly scrutinized statement.
In an early draft, Comey said it was “reasonably likely” that “hostile actors” gained access to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email account. That was changed later to say the scenario was merely “possible.”
 Another edit showed language was changed to describe the actions of Clinton and her colleagues as “extremely careless” as opposed to “grossly negligent.” This is a key legal distinction.  Johnson, writing about his concerns in a letter Thursday to FBI Director Christopher Wray, said the original “could be read as a finding of criminality in Secretary Clinton’s handling of classified material.”
He added, “The edited statement deleted the reference to gross negligence – a legal threshold for mishandling classified material – and instead replaced it with an exculpatory sentence.”   The edits also showed that references to specific potential violations of statutes on “gross negligence” regarding classified information and “misdemeanor handling” were removed.
EX-MUELLER AIDES’ TEXTS REVEALED: READ THEM HERE

 

DO NOT BELIEVE WHAT YOU SEE/HEAR FROM ‘EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY’ THEY LIE! – MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

BEWARE FALSE TWITTER/TEXT MESSAGES FROM
“EVERYTOWN For Gun Safety”.
(confiscation is their end goal).

I received a text message today saying that my representative voted against the National Concealed Carry Reciprocity bill. to call and thank him.

I immediately contact my Representative Tom Rooney of District 17 Florida, I asked him if he voted against this bill, His answer was “I voted YES” for the bill, not only that he was also a Co-sponsor of the bill.

The bill passed the House and is not on McConnell’s desk in the senate, along with 300 other bills.

EVERYTOWN is a sleaze group attempting to disarm America, does not believe in the Constitution or the Second Amendment. They are being financed by Michael Bloomberg.

Bloomberg was for most his life an Democrat, switched to Republican from 2001-2007, then jumped on the Obama bandwagon, after Obama he registered as an independent. Hates guns, can not figure out that the gun, no more than a car is not the responsible element in a killing PEOPLE, stupidity like this is rampant with many Citizens on the left and behind this Anti-gun organization Everytown.

Bloomberg is buying womens leagues and anyone else who will take his money to fight against gun ownership,

Everyone who receives this and believes in the 2nd Amendment, believes in the fact that guns do not kill people do,
need to twitter
@EverytownForGun  and tell them what you think!

LET’S GIT’R DONE FOR  AMERICA  AND THE 2nd.

STAND BY FOR A LOT OF CHANGES COMING OUR WAY

Standby for a lot of changes.

 

 The future is almost here… it is scary and exciting.

the predictions many of us will not see, but be assured many
we will and they will change your way of life. How many of the
predictions will come to fruition,

that is a good question but with the advance in technology
over the past 40 years, you can only imagine what the
next 40 -100 will bring.

Predictions:

1. Auto repair shops go away. A gasoline engine has 20,000 individual
parts. An electrical engine has 20. Electric cars are sold with
lifetime guarantees and are only repaired by dealers. It takes only 10
minutes to remove and replace an electric engine. Faulty electric
engines are not repaired in the dealership but are sent to a regional
repair shop that repairs them with robots. Essentially, if your
electric “Check Motor” light comes on, you simply drive up to what looks
like a car wash. Your car is towed through while you have a cup of
coffee and out comes your car with a new engine.

2. Gas stations go away. Parking meters are replaced by meters that
dispense electricity. All companies install electrical recharging stations.

3. All major auto manufacturers have already designated 5-6 billion
dollars each to start building new plants that only build electric cars.

4. Coal industries go away. Oil companies go away.
Drilling for oil stops.

5. Homes produce and store more electrical energy during the day and
then they use and will sell it back to the grid. The grid stores it
and dispenses it to industries that are high electricity users.

A baby of today will only see personal cars in museums.

1. The FUTURE is approaching faster than one can handle!
In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper
worldwide. Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they
went bankrupt.

What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next
5-10 years and, most people won’t see it coming.

Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would never take pictures on
film again?

Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975. The first ones only had
10,000 pixels, but followed Moore ‘s law. So as with all exponential
technologies, it was a disappointment  for a time, before it became way
superior and became mainstream in only a few short years.  It will now
happen again (but much faster) with Artificial Intelligence, health,
autonomous and electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture and jobs.

Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution.

Welcome to the Exponential Age!!

2. Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10
years.

3  Uber is just a software tool, they don’t own any cars, yet they are now
the biggest taxi company in the world.

4. Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they
don’t own any properties
.

5. Artificial Intelligence: Computers become exponentially better in
understanding the world. This year, a computer beat the best Go-player
in the world, 10 years earlier than  expected.

6. In the U.S., young lawyers already don’t get jobs. Because of
IBM’s Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less
basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70%
accuracy when done by humans. So, if you study law, stop
immediately. There will be 90% fewer lawyers in the future, only
omniscient specialists will remain.

6A. Watson already helps nurses diagnosing cancer, its 4 times more
accurate than human nurses.

7. Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize
 faces better than humans. In 2030, computers will become more
intelligent than humans.

8. Autonomous cars: In 2018 the  first self-driving cars will
appear for the public. Around 2020, the complete industry
will start to be disrupted. You don’t want to own a car anymore.
You will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location
and drive you to your destination. You will not need to park it you
only pay for the driven distance and can be productive while driving.
The very young children of today will never get a driver’s license and
will never own a car.

8A. It will change the cities, because we will need 90-95% fewer cars
for that. We can transform former parking spaces into parks.

1.2 million people die each year in car accidents worldwide. We now
have one accident every 60,000 mi (100,000 km), with autonomous
driving that will drop to 1 accident in 6 million miles (10 million km).
That will save a million lives worldwide each year.

8B. Most car companies will doubtless become bankrupt. Traditional car
companies try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car,
while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, Google) will do the revolutionary
approach and build a computer on wheels.

8C. Many engineers from Volkswagen and Audi are completely terrified of
Tesla

9. Insurance companies will have massive trouble because, without
accidents, the insurance will become 100x cheaper. Their car
insurance business model will disappear.

10. Real estate will change. Because if you can work while you
commute, people will move further away to live in a more beautiful
neighborhood.

11. Electric cars will become mainstream about 2020.
Cities will be less noisy because all new cars will run on electricity.

12. Electricity will become incredibly cheap and clean: Solar
production has been on an exponential curve for 30 years, but you  can
now see the burgeoning impact.

13. Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than fossil.
Energy companies are desperately trying to limit access to the grid to
prevent competition from home solar installations, but that simply
cannot continue… technology will take care of that strategy.

14. With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water.
Desalination of salt water now only needs 2kWh per cubic meter
(@ 0.25 cents). We don’t have scarce water in most places, we only
have scarce drinking water. Imagine what will be possible if anyone
can have as much clean water as he  wants, for nearly no cost.

15. Health: The Tricorder X price will be announced this
year. There are companies who will build a medical device (called
the “Tricorder” from  Star Trek) that works with your phone, which takes
your retina scan, your blood sample and you breath into it.
It then analyses 54 bio-markers that will identify nearly any
disease. It will be cheap, so in a few years everyone on this planet
will have access to world class medical analysis, nearly for free.

16. 3D printing: The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from
$18,000 to $400 within 10 years. In the same time, it became 100
times faster. All major shoe companies have already started 3D
printing shoes.

17. Some spare airplane parts are already 3D printed in remote
airports. The space station now has a printer that eliminates the need
for the large amount of spare parts they used to have in the past.

18. At the end of this year, new smart phones will have 3D scanning
possibilities. You can then 3D scan your feet and print your perfect
shoe at home.

19. In China, they already 3D printed and built a complete 6-story
office building. By 2027, 10% of everything that’s being produced will
be 3D printed.

20. Business opportunities: If you think of a niche you want to go
in, first ask yourself: “In the future, do I think we will have
that?” And, if the answer is yes, how can you make that happen sooner?

20A. If it doesn’t work with your phone, forget the idea. Any idea
designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to failure in the
21st century.

20B. Work: 70-80% of jobs will disappear in the next 20 years. There
will be a lot of new jobs, but it is not clear if there will be enough
new jobs in such a short time.

21. Agriculture: There will be a $100 agricultural robot in the
future. Farmers in 3rd world countries can then become managers of
their field instead of working all day on their fields.

22. Aeroponics will need much less water. The first Petri dish produced
veal is now available and will be cheaper than cow produced veal in
2018. Right now, 30% of all agricultural surfaces is used for cows.
Imagine if we don’t need that space anymore.

23. There are several startups who will bring insect protein to
the market shortly. It contains more protein than meat. It will be
labeled as “alternative protein source” (because most people still
reject the idea of eating insects).

 24. Governments throughout the world will eventually no longer be run by humans, they will be managed and governed by balanced equitable intelligent computers without the bickering and arguing between adversary parties. Politicians will become obsolete history and a whole new era will surface.   A lot is coming for the continuance of the human race. If you think its amazing now,—-   Just watch what is coming in the next 100 years.  It will be double amazing. ! ! !

SIgn THE PETITION AT THE END!

If we don’t take urgent action now, the deep state could defeat us.

The deep state has violated the Espionage Act with illegal leaks endangering our national security. Obama holdovers have refused to comply with lawful orders, even suing the Administration. The deep state has been acting like a king.

It’s not a king. The deep state bureaucracy doesn’t get to violate federal law to undercut the conservative agenda.

The only thing standing between politically corrupt lawlessness and the integrity of our constitutional republic is YOU.

We’ve filed more than half a dozen critical lawsuits against the lawless – taxpayer-funded – deep state bureaucracy. Just hours ago, we were back in federal court exposing a major new deep state lie – a monumental case that could defeat the deep state.

But we can’t do it without you. Take action today.

TIME TO BRING A HALT TO CHAIN MIGRATION – IT IS HURTING AMERICA!

Data: Every 2 New Immigrants to the U.S. Bring 7 Foreign Relatives with Them
immigration

Every two new immigrants to the United States bring roughly seven foreign relatives with them, creating an enormous, never-ending flow of family-based immigration.
Previously unreleased data from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reveals the number of foreign relatives who enter the U.S. simply because their family member is an immigrant, in a process known as “chain migration.”
According to the data, chain migration is the largest driver of legal immigration, with every two new immigrants bringing seven foreign relatives with them to the U.S., making up more than 70 percent of the current immigration system.

DHS: More than 9M Foreign Relatives of Immigrants Admitted to U.S. in Last Decade – Breitbart
More than nine million foreign relatives of immigrants have entered the United States in the last ten years.

Between 2005 and 2016, roughly 9.3 million foreign nationals have come to the U.S. as chain migrants for no other purpose than to reunite with extended family members. In that same time period, a total of 13.06 million foreign nationals have entered the U.S. through the legal immigration system.  Currently, only one in 15 foreign nationals admitted to the U.S. come to the country based on skills and employment. Though roughly 150,000 employment-based Green Cards are allotted every year, half of those Green Cards actually go to the foreign relatives of employees.
The DHS data is the first time the agency has ever released chain migration statistics broken down into the country of origin from which foreign nationals arrive to the U.S.  In the last decade, 1.7 million chain migrants have entered the country from Mexico, with the average Mexican immigrant bringing roughly six foreign relatives with them to the U.S. Mexico sends more chain migrants to the U.S. than any other country.
After President Trump announced the end of the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, both political establishments have scrambled to come up with a plan that gives amnesty to nearly 800,000 to 3.5 million illegal aliens who have been shielded from deportation or are eligible for the DACA program.  Such an amnesty deal would trigger a larger chain migration over the next decade — if an end to chain migration is not a part of the deal — that could potentially bring anywhere from one to 19 million new foreign nationals to the U.S.

American agriculture will not collapse without illegal labor.    It is time to put this Liberal myth to bed.

America’s Farmers Don’t Depend on Illegal Immigration

Liberals frame the debate over illegal immigration as a dilemma: either America grants amnesty to aliens or the economy will collapse.  Some even imply that Americans will starve to death because of higher food prices – who will pick America’s fruits and veggies if not illegals? Bruce Goldstein, president of a nonprofit called Farmworker Justice, boldly claims that if we were to deport all illegal aliens, “our agricultural system would collapse.”  Collapse.
This is nonsense.  American agriculture will not collapse without illegal labor.  Why?  Because there are plenty of technological solutions and American workers available to pick up the slack.  It is time to put this myth to bed.
Agriculture is not a labor-intensive industry, and it has not been for decades.  Less than 2 percent of Americans work in agriculture, according to the World Bank.  This figure has declined since 1960, when roughly 6 percent of Americans worked on farms.  If trends continue, we can expect the number to continue to fall.  This is because of the wonders of mechanization: machines now do everything from threshing wheat to milking cows.  The bottom line: Most farmers do not “benefit” from cheap illegal labor, since their labor costs are minimal to begin with.
The “exceptions” to this rule are fruit and nut farms, located primarily in California.  Crops like raspberries and almonds are notoriously difficult for machines to pick.  There are many reasons for this, including the fact that berries require a “soft touch” – they ripen at different times, and bushes are tough for machinery to navigate.  These labor-intensive farms are the main agricultural culprits when it comes to hiring illegal workers.  After all, they have the most to gain.
But realistically, even labor-intensive agriculture does not depend upon illegal labor.  Orchards could get by without illegal workers since only four percent of American agricultural workers are illegal aliens, according to a report in National Review.  Likewise, only one in six workers in California’s nut orchards is an illegal alien.  Removing illegals from the system would be inconvenient for them, but it would not drive them out of business – the remaining employees would simply have to work a few hours of overtime per day.
Without Aliens, Who Will Pick the Crops?
There are two ways for the agriculture industry to replace illegal workers: they can either hire Americans or invest in better technology.
At this moment, there are roughly 23 million unemployed Americans, some of whom have experience in agriculture.  On top of this, America has a massive problem with seasonal unemployment for its college students.  Either way, there are more than enough Americans to fill the potential labor shortage.  The only reason Americans are not working in agriculture is because they are out-competed by cheap illegal workers.  Data from the Bureau of Labor Statisticsreveals that millions of Americans – of all races – currently work as janitors, laborers, and agricultural workers.  If farmers were required to pay market wages, they would not have a problem finding employees.
The counterpoint: If farmers hire Americans, the price of food will go up!  Yes – but not by much.  Higher labor costs can result in higher prices only to the degree that labor impacts the product’s cost.  For example, higher wages for train conductors does not appreciably impact rail shipping costs because there are so few conductors per unit of freight – rail is capital-intensive.  Contrast this with some retail outlets that spend 70 percent of their revenue on labor costs.
Agriculture – even fruit and nut orchards – is relatively capital-intensive – i.e., the labor costs aren’t all that significant per unit of produce.  Proof is in the numbers.  A 2011 report published by the Federation for American Immigration Reform found that the agriculture industry was one of America’s most profitable sectors and could easily afford to pay its workers 20-30 percent more without significantly impacting profits.
Furthermore, research conducted by Philip Martin, a leading expert on farm labor and migration issues, found that labor costs are negligible compared to the retail cost of produce.  In 2006, Martin found that only 5-6 cents of every dollar spent on produce is due to labor costs.  Therefore, if illegal aliens were removed from the labor force entirely, and labor costs rose by up to 40 percent to attract American workers, labor would still only account for 7-9 cents.  Over the course of a year, this works out to just $9.00 extra for the average household.  This is nothing, especially when you remember that illegal immigration costs America between $115 billion and $140 billion annually.
The second option, improving technology and embracing mechanization, is the strategy employed by America’s wheat, corn, and dairy industries.  Ever had trouble affording flour or milk?  Probably not.  Thank mechanization for this fact, not illegal aliens.
Although adopting new technology can be expensive, it brings costs down in the long run.  And as it turns out, there is a good argument to be made that the American fruit and nut industry’s addiction to cheap illegal labor has stifled technological development and kept prices artificially high.  Farmers should and could mechanize – today.  The technology exists.  If only America’s fruit farms would embrace it.  For example, an American company called “Abundant Robotics” has developed a fruit-picking robot that can harvest apples and peaches.  Other companies have developed machines that are able to pick much smaller, more delicate fruit, like grapes and strawberries.
America’s farmers do not rely on illegal alien labor.  This is a myth cooked up by the pro-illegal immigration lobby to further its agenda.  Nothing more.  Meanwhile, America pays the price.

Here’s What Would Happen if N. Korea Tried to Shoot Down a US B-1B Bomber

Published on Sep 26, 2017


South Korean intelligence officials told NK News that North Korea couldn’t even reliably track the B-1B flights. To avoid surprising the North Koreans, the US even laid out its flight path, an official told NK News. At this point, even North Korea must be aware it’s largely outclassed by the US and allied air forces, and that taking them on would be a “suicide mission,” Lamrani said.

THE HILL – FRANKEN ANNOUNCED HE IS RESIGNING – GREAT!!!!

Welcome to Overnight Regulations, your daily rundown of news from the federal agencies, Capitol Hill and the courts. It’s Thursday evening here in Washington where Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) announced he is resigning over sexual harassment allegations.

 THE BIG STORIES 

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt told House lawmakers Thursday the agency will replace former President Obama’s climate change rule for power plants.  As Timothy Cama reports, Pruitt said at a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing that EPA will be introducing a replacement rule for the Clean Power Plan.  Pruitt had previously only committed to considering a replacement for the rule, which called for a 32 percent reduction in the power sector’s carbon emissions.  Business groups opposed to the Obama rule have been pushing Pruitt to write a replacement to shield companies and the federal government from future litigation on climate and fulfill the EPA’s obligation to regulate power plants’ carbon dioxide.
Find the story here.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s deputy director isn’t giving up her fight for control of the watchdog agency. As Sylvan Lane reports, Leandra English asked the District Court for the District of Columbia Wednesday night to block President Trump from naming Office of Budget and Management Director Mick Mulvaney to the interim role. The request is English’s latest maneuver in the fight for control of the agency. English originally sued Mulvaney and the president, claiming the Dodd-Frank Act made her the rightful acting director, but her lawsuit was ultimately dismissed.

The FBI’s Role in Benghazi Just Leaked & It’s Worse Than ANYONE Could Have Ever Imagined

This has not been a good month for the FBI.  First we learn that there are multiple anti-Trump FBI agents on Mueller’s investigation into “Russian collusion,” and then we learn that the wife of the 2nd in command, Andrew McCabe, possibly received $700,000 from Hillary Clinton.
And now we might have just learned the most shocking thing of all.  According to The Hill, The FBI was apparently involved in the coverup of the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi in 2012 which led to the death of our Libyan Ambassador.
“REP. RON DESANTIS (R-FLA.) SAID WEDNESDAY HE INTERVIEWED A RECENTLY RETIRED FBI SUPERVISOR WHO TOLD HIM HE WAS INSTRUCTED BY DEPUTY DIRECTOR ANDREW MCCABE NOT TO CALL THE 2012 BENGHAZI ATTACK AN ACT OF TERRORISM WHEN DISTRIBUTING A REPORT ON THE FBI FINDINGS TO THE LARGER INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY.”
This was deeply troubling to the FBI agent who spoke to Re. DeSantis because it just didn’t make sense.
“THE AGENT FOUND THE INSTRUCTION CONCERNING BECAUSE HIS UNIT HAD GATHERED INCONTROVERTIBLE EVIDENCE SHOWING A MAJOR AL QAEDA FIGURE HAD DIRECTED THE ATTACK AND THE INFORMATION HAD ALREADY BEEN BRIEFED TO PRESIDENT OBAMA.”
Rep. DeSaints then dropped the bombshell on the FBI:
“WHAT OPERATIONAL REASON WOULD THERE BE TO ISSUE AN EDICT TO AGENTS TELLING THEM, IN THE FACE OF VIRTUALLY CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY, NOT TO CATEGORIZE THE BENGHAZI ATTACK AS A RESULT OF TERRORISM?  BY PLACING THE INTERESTS OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION OVER THE PUBLIC’S INTERESTS, THE ORDER IS YET ANOTHER DATA POINT HIGHLIGHTING THE POLITICIZATION OF THE FBI.” 
 It appears the FBI LIED about what actually happened in Benghazi. This goes beyond unbelievable, this is down right scary.  The FBI is no longer a trustworthy organization.  Rather it has been turned into an entity that can be used by corrupt politicians to go after their opponents and cover up their crimes.

H.R. 38 National Reciprocity passes U.S. House

CCRKBA HAILS CONCEALED CARRY RECIPROCITY VICTORY

BELLEVUE, WA – Today’s passage of concealed carry reciprocity legislation by the U.S. House of Representatives is a victory for American gun owners and the Second Amendment, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said.

H.R. 38 was passed by the House and now moves to the U.S. Senate for debate and action.

“We’re one step closer to fully restoring the Second Amendment as it was originally intended,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “Now, if the Senate can follow the House lead and pass this measure, law abiding American gun owners will no longer have to fear wrongful arrest and even imprisonment for having a firearm for personal protection as they travel from state to state.”

Under the reciprocity legislation, states must honor the carry permits and licenses issued by all other states. No longer will honest citizens be harassed or prosecuted for exercising their constitutional right to bear arms evenwhen they travel in such states as New York, New Jersey, California, Maryland or the handful of other states that have abused their authority over the years, turning citizens into criminals.

“For decades,” Gottlieb observed, “the gun prohibition crowd has argued that gun owners should be licensed, same as drivers. Well, millions of them are licensed, and they should be afforded the same courtesy as automobile drivers who travel from state to state. After all, there is no constitutional right to drive a car, but there is a constitutionally-protected right to bear arms, and officials in those states need to recognize that.

“Now the battle moves to the Senate,” he said. “We’re encouraging American gun owners and especially the millions of citizens who have licenses or permits to carry, to contact their senators about this important legislation. The gun prohibition lobby is pulling out all the stops to defeat this legislation, and Second Amendment activists need to fight back.”Thanks todo

Obama’s Illegal DACA Program Must Be Shut Down. – A MUST READ FOR ALL

Obama’s Illegal DACA Program Must Be Shut Down.

Illegal Aliens Demand Full US Citizenship and complain that white supremacy is murdering them.

Las Vegas, NV – This article explores the highly-controversial, unconstitutional and illegal exercise of executive order by Barack Obama in 2012 now called either DACA or the Dream Act.
SUMMARY:  RINO Republicans in Congress now call for action on giving broad amnesty rights and virtually all 34 of them come from states that have been invaded by illegal aliens.
What is DACA and why is it so highly contested?
DACA is an acronym for a 2012 unconstitutional power grab by Barak Obama made by him for the purpose of adding substantial numbers of illegal aliens who overwhelmingly vote Democrat as virtually all individuals who were covered by the DACA come from socialist countries like Mexico.
DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
There are many, many problems with DACA not the least of which is that the continuation of DACA will be disastrous for America.
The Hill reports that President Trump rescinded the Obama-era program in September, giving Congress six months to act before the existing known 690,000 beneficiaries lost their benefits and face the risk of deportation.
Dan Newhouse R-WA insists there is an urgent need to enact a DACA-like program as in October, 2017 some 22,000 illegal aliens resident in the United States were ordered to return to their country of origin.  These 22,000 failed to make a simple filing with the government to get a Trump-approved 2-year extension to existing DACA status and thereby will be returned to their true home.  But, somehow this failure by the illegal aliens is turned by the globalists into an indictment against America, somehow becoming a charge of inhumanity in what is, indeed, the most humane country in the world.
On the other side of the aisle, the vast importance of keeping nearly 700,000 illegal aliens in the US can be seen by threats coming from large numbers of Democrat members of Congress who threaten a complete federal government shutdown because the globalists in the Democrat party know their ideology will never again ascend to control without the corrupting force of the illegal alien invasion.
But, here is the depth of the problem for America: with 34 RINOs from states that have already been overtaken by aliens on board and all 193 Democrats demanding a solution in December, the idea of a DACA fix has majority support in the lower chamber.
Business Insider reports that a common response in the House is, “There is no crisis…” and Congressional leadership are relying on a March deadline for action, a deadline provided by President Trump.
To highlight how the illegal invasion is impacting RINO Republicans elected to office, we have Congressman Jeff Denham R-CA who stated, “For thousands of DACA recipients across the nation, including 17,000 in my home state, every day without a legislative solution brings more uncertainty about their future.”   Denham, who represents a district in Central California resides in an area so thoroughly invaded by Mexicans, tourists comment after having visited the area that they thought for sure they just left the squalor of Mexico behind so the threat to the continued holding of power by politicians like Denham is directly related to California’s Motor-Voter laws that allow illegal aliens to get drivers licenses and only a drivers license is required in California to vote in federal elections – a crime under federal law yet a criminal statute not extremely enforced by Obama hold-overs in the DOJ, the FBI or the Federal Elections Commission – is like after Obama, our American borders simply were washed down the drain as an effluence no longer desired by globalist Democrats who see the destruction of American borders as the key to their regaining power.
But, DACA is NOT what the Democrats and RINO Republicans say it is!
The Heritage Foundation writing yesterday reported, “Democrats portray the DACA program as only benefitting those who were a few years old when they came to the U.S. illegally, leaving them unable to speak their native language and ignorant of their countries’ cultural norms. Therefore, the reasoning goes, it would be a hardship to return them to the countries where they were born…” and it is common knowledge that Obama himself gave this rationale when he unilaterally ordered the creation of the DACA program.
What have been the results of DACA since 2012?  Have the supposed individuals brought here as children and learned only English thereby not allowing them to return to their home country actually accomplished anything or even integrated into America in any way?
Again, we turn to the Heritage Foundation which reports
  • Thousands of DACA “children” have been convicted of felonies yet not expelled.
  • Even if evidence that an illegal alien might have committed multiple crimes (such as membership in violent gangs like MS13) is clearly shown, the alien would still be eligible for DACA unless Homeland Security referred the violation to state or federal prosecutors and the alien was convicted.
  • Even after conviction of a felony, the globalists running our law enforcement agencies like the FBI would not purge the criminal.
  • Over 24 percent of the DACA-eligible population fall into the functionally illiterate category and another 46 percent have only ‘basic’ English ability.”  Thus, there would be zero problems for at least 50% of the DACA folks to reintegrate into the culture of their home country as, in reality, they have never left it except to hunker down for America’s amazing welfare benefits including monthly payments, medical, housing, and retirement payments all from funds paid by America’s hard-working native population.
  • Any congressional amnesty bill providing citizenship for DACA beneficiaries could significantly increase the number of illegal aliens who will benefit unless Congress amends the sponsorship rules under federal immigration law. Providing lawful status to millions of so-called “Dreamers” will allow their extended families of those aliens to profit from illegal conduct.
  • The U.S. accepts about a million legal immigrants every year. According to a recent study, of the 33 million legal immigrants admitted over the last 35 years, about 61 percent were chain migration immigrants – meaning once the alien gets here, then here comes the entire extended family because, in practice, every alien ultimately succeeds in bringing in another 3-4 alleged family members.
My belief is that all of these individuals must be sent back home.  In cases proven to concern those who speak only English, then that is a great skill that can be utilized in tourist industry, commercial and manufacturing and so forth.  It is not a detriment, it is an asset the DACA got for free.  I myself have learned Spanish without formal education.  A person immersed in a Spanish-speaking community can pick up this simple language in a few weeks in order to be functional.  The United States can pay these individuals a monthly stipend for a set period – say 18 or 24 months – via universally accessible Western Union or American Express type money licensed transmitters without significant cost to taxpayers other than the stipend itself.
It is time to end the corruption of our Constitution by Obama.  DACA is an illegal and unconstitutional exercise of dictatorial power by Barack Obama and must not be allowed to continue to further corrupt our nation’s resources, resources already creating an estimated $1 trillion deficit in 2018.

THE HILL NEWS ALERT- DEMS WANT TO SHUT DOWN GOVERNMENT IF THEY DO NOT GET DACA AMNESTY. NO DACA AMNESTY SHUT IT DOWN!

Trump rips Dems a day ahead of key White House meeting

President Trump on Wednesday ripped into Democratic congressional leaders one day before a critical White House meeting, claiming the party is looking to shut down the government with its demands on immigration.

“It could happen,” Trump told reporters at the White House when asked about the chances of a shutdown. “The Democrats are really looking at something that is very dangerous to our country. They are looking at shutting down.”

Trump took aim at threats from some Democrats to vote against a year-end spending deal unless Congress shields from deportation young immigrants in the U.S. illegally.
