President Trump Explores Executive Action For Hate Crimes Following Mass Shootings

OAN Newsroom
UPDATED 6:59 AM PT — Wednesday, August 7, 2019
President Trump is seeking executive action, following two mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio over the weekend. “I’m also directing the Department of Justice to propose legislation ensuring that those who commit hate crimes and mass murders face the death penalty, and that this capital punishment be delivered quickly, decisively and without years of needless delay,” the president announced.
This comes as he reaffirmed his stance Monday to increase ‘red flag’ laws, which would prohibit unstable individuals from owning or purchasing a firearm.
White House hopefuls suggested gun restrictions should go even further by lawfully banning assault weapons altogether. Other Democrat leaders are choosing to blame Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell by claiming it’s the majority leaders job to put a background check measure up for vote.
“You don’t like it, Mr. McConnell, you have the right of that, why don’t you put up the vote? Put it on the Senate floor. He doesn’t have the guts to do it. He’s weak. He’s a weak leader.”

Democrats have also targeted the president, suggesting his rhetoric has contributed to white supremacist hate crimes. Regardless of accusations, the president said he is confident America will rise to the challenge and is asking both parties to put politics aside.
“Now is the time to set destructive partisanship aside, so destructive, and find the courage to answer hatred with unity, devotion and love — our future is in our control,”stated President Trump.

Hard Left Turn–We did not leave the Democrat Party, It Left Us

Hard Left Turn--We did not leave the Democrat Party, It Left Us“Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” John F. Kennedy
“Free health care, free college, free medical for illegal aliens, open borders, reparations, and guaranteed income for all Americans.”Democrat Platform 2020?”
The candidate was a man of great courage. A decorated war hero, he was nearly killed in combat. He risked life and limb to save his comrades and never left their side.  He was a true patriot in every sense of the word. After his military service, he devoted his life to public service.  He stood for strong national defense, a vigorous economy, and promotion of free enterprise. He vowed to fight socialism and believed with all his heart in the principles of freedom and capitalist democracy—which made the United States the most powerful country on earth.  He knew how to salute the flag—you know, with the hand over the heart.
He challenged Americans to work for the good of the country—not ask the country for a hand out or a free check. Of course, the government would help the truly needy—as it always had. But the country was not “Uncle Sugar” who would be all things to all people. Nor was it our private piggy bank. He did not believe in taking from the rich and giving to the poor. He was an enlightened, good-hearted man; but he was no Robin Hood. He did not believe in the Marxist axiom, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” Socialism was an evil doctrine, to be opposed at every level; capitalism, with all its faults, was the way to prosper and do the greatest good for the greatest number of people. It was what made our nation prosper.  He understood this.  His name was John. He was of Irish descent.
His platform held that, “If America is to work effectively for peace, [it] must first restore its national strength-military, political, and economic.”  It cautioned that our military power was declining relative to that of the Chinese and Russians.  It declared that democracy was the supreme form of government , which “places its highest value upon individual dignity,” and it opposed socialism, in which “the rights of men and women were sacrificed to the state.”  It pronounced that, with respect to the former members of the Soviet bloc, his party would “never accept any deal or arrangement which acquiesces in the subjugation of these peoples” by Russia. His platform promised to “unshackle American enterprise and to free American labor, industrial leadership, and capital, to create an abundance that will outstrip any other system.”  It boasted that, “Free competitive enterprise is the most creative and productive form of economic order that the world has seen.” It promised to “foster the development of [energy] from all sources, including water, tidal, and nuclear power.”  It vowed to prospect for mineral deposits, oil shale, and radioactive materials as means of generating energy. It was a platform that was bold, unafraid, unabashedly pro-American, pro-capitalism, and pro-democracy. It did not seek to “transform” America, but to promote the values that made it great.  And it did not apologize for America.
Although the biographical sketch as well as the platform might well be that of Donald Trump, it is not. The man was President John F. Kennedy and the platform was that of the Democrat Party. If his bio does not sound much like the vision of American espoused by AOC, or Bernie Sandersclaus or Elizabeth Warren it should come as no surprise.  Their Socialist creed does not remotely resemble that of our beloved Jack Kennedy. In fact, I doubt that Kennedy would agree with these folks about very much at all. Which brings me to my point.

In the early 1960s, I was a Democrat. Everyone in my family was a Democrat.  Everyone I knew was a Democrat

In the early 1960s, I was a Democrat. Everyone in my family was a Democrat.  Everyone I knew was a Democrat. We believed in the country and were proud of it. Our families worked hard.  Most of us went to church. We saluted the flag. We did not know what welfare was. We helped the poor and our neighbor. No politician had to tell us to do so.  We said the Pledge of Allegiance, belonged to the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, never thinking that it was politically incorrect to do so.  We loved the country, and asked nothing from it other than to protect us. Our president was a national hero who risked life and limb to rescue his comrades during World War II and he was anything but a socialist. He never associated with homegrown terrorists, enemies of the United States, radical anti-Semites, or racist preachers who cursed America from the pulpit. And patriotism was neither a dirty word nor politically incorrect.
Back then we were all traveling through life in a caravan—our whole family, and everyone we knew—in our Democrat Fords and Chevys, believing Kennedy Democrat ideals,  and living Kennedy Democrat family values as we drove down the middle of the road.  I still have the same basic values I did back then. So does my brother, my parents, and many of my friends.  We did not change; the party did.  Co-opted by vacuous Hollywood celebrities, the mainstream press and avowed Socialist Democrat candidates who tell us how to think—radical socialists who believe that government is a candy machine—the party of Truman and Kennedy is now nothing I recognize.  Nor would my father—who worked so hard for the party decades ago.
No, we did not leave the party…the Democrats left us. Over time, the Democrats turned left…hard left. And we kept driving straight down the road.

The El Paso and Christchurch Shootings: The Ecofascist Connection


Tarrant and Crusius seriously believe Earth, and cherished environs thereon, are being terminally degraded by overpopulation. Groups spreading such absurd beliefs bear some responsibility for Tarrant’s and Crusius’s actions.

The El Paso and Christchurch Shootings: The Ecofascist Connection


The El Paso and Christchurch Shootings: The Ecofascist ConnectionOn March 15, 2019, 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant attacked a mosque and Islamic centre in Christchurch, New Zealand with a semi-automatic rifle; killing 51 and injuring 50.

On August 3, 2019, 21-year-old Patrick Crusius attacked a WalMart crowded with Latino shoppers in El Paso, Texas with a semi-automatic rifle; killing 22, injuring 24.

Both men posted manifestos. In three places in his 87-page The Great Replacement Tarrant self-defines as ecofascist; to wit: “I mostly agree with Sir Oswald Mosely and consider myself Eco-fascist.”

The manifesto bandies eco-clichés:

Rampant urbanization and industrialization, ever expanding cities and shrinking forests, a complete removal of man from nature, with obvious results.”

A section titled: “Green nationalism is the only true nationalism” concludes: “There is no traditionalism without environmentalism.” Another section argues for protective tariffs around “environmentally conscious” societies. An overarching concern is:

The environment is being destroyed by overpopulation.”

Tarrant’s conclusion:

Kill the invaders. Kill overpopulation and by doing so save the environment.”

Crusius’s four-page ‘The Inconvenient Truth’ is a hat-tip to Al Gore

Crusius’s four-page ‘The Inconvenient Truth’ is a hat-tip to Al Gore that praises Tarrant. Crusius rails against: water pollution, resource overharvesting, inadequate recycling, urban sprawl and consumerism. According to Crusius:

“…our lifestyle is destroying the environment of our country. The decimation of the environment is creating a massive burden on future generations.”

And:

The environment is getting worse by the year.”

He lays much blame on overpopulation; specifically immigration, hence:

…the next logical step is decreasing the number of people in America using resources. If we can get rid of enough people, then our way of life can become more sustainable.”

Such views are not “fringe” environmentalism. While Big Green currently downplays the issue, many enviro-organizations keep overpopulation phobias alive. Several million Europeans and Anglo-Americans belong to groups that contend Earth and/or their homelands are dangerously overpopulated.

While the following abridgement of: Traditional Population Control AdvocacyFrom Malthus to Mifepristone: A Primer on the Population Control Movement focusses on the US scene; similar milieus exist across Europe and the Anglosphere.

Malthusian and hostile to immigration

Virginia-based Negative Population Growth (NPG) has 5 employees and 25,000 dues-paying members. NPG claims overpopulation is the main threat facing Earth and its climate. They believe America’s existing population outstrips its natural carrying capacity. They convey their demands for stark reductions in immigration via radio and TV appearances and in ads in mainstream publications. NPG distributes “teachers’ packets” and “student fact sheets.”

In 1999, NPG published The Population-Environment Connection: Who Makes It? to survey enviro-org positions on population. Defenders of Wildlife, Environmental Defense Fund, League of Conservation Voters and National Audubon Society identified overpopulation as a primary environmental problem. National Wilderness Federation and Wilderness Society declared immigration to be a problem; the latter calling for reduced immigration.

From its 1892 inception to the mid-1970s, the Sierra Club remained programmatically Malthusian and hostile to immigration. The Club financed and publicized Paul Ehrlich’s Population Bomb (1968).

In the 1970s, anti-immigration zealot John Tanton chaired Sierra Club’s Population Committee. Tanton, an ophthalmologist and ardent conservationist, founded a Michigan-area Sierra Club chapter. (He later founded Scenic Michigan.) An outspoken eugenicist, Tanton also established a Planned Parenthood chapter.

Frustrated with what he perceived to be the Club’s wishy-washy immigration stance, Tanton launched Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) in 1979. He briefly led Zero Population Growth and co-founded Numbers USA. Tanton feared Hispanics were overrunning America.

Sierra Club is now pro-immigration and even endorses amnesty for illegal aliens
In the 1990s, Sierra Club’s anti-immigrant faction (Tanton acolytes) attempted to take over the board. Failing in this coup, the faction then forced a Club-wide petition on immigration; losing by a 2-to-1 margin.
In 2004, Sierrans for US Population Stabilization made another assault on the Club’s board, but were again defeated 2-to-1. Club execs accused the anti-immigrant faction of white supremacism.
While Sierra Club is now pro-immigration and even endorses amnesty for illegal aliens, it remains committed to population stabilization. The Club considers population and environment intrinsically linked. They fret about overpopulation in the developing world and the leveling-off of US contraceptive use. They claim that filling unmet needs for contraception would do more to protect the climate than preventing deforestation.
Tanton’s brainchild, FAIR, draws 90% of its $13 million annual revenues from 50 foundations. FAIR employs 28 staff and claims 1.9 million members. While FAIR’s opposition to immigration is explicitly environmentalist; FAIR gives equal attention to immigrant-related crime and fiscal burdens. Prominent on FAIR’s board is Planned Parenthood, and Population Institute, director Sarah Epstein.
The anti-immigration Numbers USA claims millions of members. Co-founder Roy Beck, one of America’s leading enviro-journalists, received awards from the EPA and Izaak Walton League; and has been guest speaker at Society of Environmental Journalists conventions. Beck is a specialist on, and opponent of, urban sprawl. He co-founded Numbers USA because he believed: “the country’s environmental goals could not be achieved without reducing immigration.”

Ivory Coast passes legislation encouraged by Ivanka Trump

“Ivanka Trump is applauding the recent passage of legislation in Ivory Coast related to changes she pushed during her April trip to Africa,” Jill Colvin and Alexis Adele report for The Associated Press.
“The country is in the process of updating its family code to make it more equitable to women — a move President Donald Trump’s eldest daughter and senior adviser praised as ‘a great step forward.’” The new law will support women’s ownership rights and their equal management of household assets.

“A White House initiative spearheaded by Ivanka Trump to help women in developing countries get ahead economically announced its first batch of grants on Wednesday: $27 million for 14 projects in 22 countries, mostly in Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia,” Darlene Superville writes in The Associated Press. “The projects are meant to help women with employment and entrepreneurship and to provide women in business with access to financing and other assistance.”
“Since last fall, the Department of Homeland Security has consistently stated that Border Patrol’s temporary holding spaces were not designed nor ever intended to detain the record numbers of migrants illegally crossing the border, including tens of thousands of unaccompanied children and families every month,” members of a bipartisan Homeland Security Advisory council write in USA Today. “The Border Patrol did not cause this crisis; our broken immigration system did. To fix this problem requires immediate changes to our laws, not just funding.”
“Ensuring farmers have long-term, free and fair access to our largest trade markets is critical to empowering the next generation of family farmers,” Iowa’s Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig writes in The Hill. “While the latest round of federal trade aid assistance will provide some much needed, short-term relief for farm families, farmers need and want markets to sell their products. Congress has the power to open additional market opportunities right now by ratifying the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).”

TRUMP WITHHOLDING AID TO CENTRAL AMERICA

Trump Withholding Hundreds of Millions in
Aid to Central America as Immigration Crisis Rages On

President Donald Trump is officially withholding hundreds of millions in U.S. aid to three Central American countries as punishment for being the majority of the current illegal immigration crisis.
The White House informed Congress on Monday it is permanently diverting $370 million in aid from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, according to Reuters. That money was previously approved by Congress for fiscal year 2018, but had not yet been used.
Trump is not stopping there.
$180 million approved in 2017’s fiscal year was not spent, so Trump’s administration suspended that money. U.S. Border Patrol encountered over 144,000 illegal immigrants during May. May’s total marked the third month in a row illegal immigrant apprehensions topped 100,000. This year, over half a million illegal immigrants have been arrested by border patrol.
Experts claim the number will reach one million by the end of the year. A vast majority of these immigrants are family units or unaccompanied minors from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.  The Department of Homeland Security — burdened by regulations intended for large-scale apprehensions of adult Mexican men traveling alone — are buckling under the weight of the new immigrant demographics.
The Trump administration has made efforts to control the flow of Central American immigrants pouring across the U.S.-Mexico border. Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan embarked on a four-day trip to the Northern Triangle in May and secured an agreement with the Guatemalan government aiming to curb illegal immigration out of the country. The White House doubled down on their international cooperation by reaching a sweeping deal with Mexico’s government earlier in June.
Mexico agreed to deploy up to 6,000 National Guard troops to its southern border with Guatemala and increase security at the northern border with the U.S. News of Trump diverting aid from Central America isn’t surprising.
The administration announced its initial intentions in March.
“At the Secretary’s instruction, we are carrying out the President’s direction and ending FY 2017 and FY 2018 foreign assistance programs for the Northern Triangle,” a State Department said in March. “We will be engaging Congress as part of this process.”  Trump has long been critical of Central American governments accepting U.S. aid as they allow their citizens to illegally immigrate.
He went on to tweet his frustrations.
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

Mexico is doing NOTHING to help stop the flow of illegal immigrants to our Country. They are all talk and no action. Likewise, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador have taken our money for years, and do Nothing. The Dems don’t care, such BAD laws. May close the Southern Borders

HILLARY’S EMAILS IN THE NEWS AGAIN – WHEN ARE THEY GOING TO PROSECUTE THIS WOMAN!

State Dept. Reports Finding 23 Violations
of Security Protocols Related to Hillary Clinton’s Emails

State Department Makes Huge Announcement About Hillary’s Email

The State Department revealed on Monday that at least 15 people mishandled former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s emails with a total of 23 different violations. The revelation came in a letter that was written to Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley.
While the review is still not completed, the letter states that 15 people received write-ups for breaking state department rules, The Washington Times reported Mary Elizabeth Taylor, the State Department’s assistant secretary in the Bureau of Legislative Affairs wrote in the letter: “To this point, the Department has assessed culpability to 15 individuals, some of whom were culpable in multiple security incidents.”
“DS has issued 23 violations and 7 infractions incidents. … This number will likely change as the review progresses,” she added. “The department considers the violation of security policies to be a serious matter.”
Grassley, who is currently overseeing the review, responded to the State Department’s findings via Twitter on Tuesday morning. He said that he was “glad” the State Department responded to his inquiry and that classified material must be “handled by the book.
ChuckGrassley @ChuckGrassley

Grassley added that “violators” should be held accountable. Likewise, President Trump acknowledged the findings were “really big.”
“The State Department said it has identified 30 Security Incidents involving current or former employees and their handling of Crooked Hillary Clinton’s Emails,” he said. “This is really big. Never admitted before. Highly Classified Material. Will the Dems investigate this?”
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

The State Department said that its investigation should come to an end in early September and acknowledged how time-consuming the probe has been.
Taylor wrote, “Given the volume of emails provided to the Department from former Secretary Clinton’s private email server, the Department’s process has been necessarily more complicated and complex requiring a significant dedication of time and resources.”
She said that disciplinary actions were pending and that “all valid security incidents are reviewed by DS and taken into account.”  While the letter did not mention any specific names, the State Department promised an additional update once the investigation is complete.  Clinton’s emails have been the subject of criticism, especially among Republicans.
In 2016, then-FBI Director James Comey said that Clinton’s handling of her emails was “extremely reckless.”
In a closed-door congressional hearing last October, former FBI general counsel James Baker said he thought that Clinton and her team should have been prosecuted for the handling of her emails, but he was convinced otherwise “pretty late” into the investigation.
