Man Shot At Trump Miami Resort: Here’s What You Should Know

A man was shot and arrested early Friday morning after exchanging gunfire with police officers at the Trump National Doral Golf Club near Miami.
Doral Police Chief Hernan Organvidez told reporters that police were notified of an “active shooter” in the resort around 1:30 a.m. ET. Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez said the man was shouting about President Donald Trump, “actively shooting,” and had draped an American flag over the counter of the resort lobby.

“He was yelling and spewing some information about President Trump and that’s what we know so far. And he had an American flag that he did drape over the counter,” Perez said.

Perez also said a Doral officer received an unspecified injury but is in good condition. “You know, these officers did not hesitate one second to engage this individual that was actively shooting in the lobby of the hotel,” he said. “They risked their lives knowing that they had to get in there to save lives in that hotel.”   Perez also said a Doral officer received an unspecified injury but is in good condition. “You know, these officers did not hesitate one second to engage this individual that was actively shooting in the lobby of the hotel,” he said. “They risked their lives knowing that they had to get in there to save lives in that hotel.”   The shooter was later identified as 42-year-old Doral resident, Jonathan Oddi. Oddi, who lists himself as a fitness instructor, real-estate investor, and manager at Pegasus, a business dealing in minerals and gemstones, lives a few miles away from the resort. He appears to be from South Africa.

Man Shot At Trump Miami Resort: Here’s What You Should Know


Texas high school shooting leaves at least 8 dead, suspect in custody: report

By Kathleen Joyce, Jennifer Earl | Fox News
At least eight people have been killed in a Texas high school shooting Friday, FOX 26reported. The suspected shooter was taken into custody and the active shooter situation was said to be over.   Police officers responded to Santa Fe High School around 8 a.m. CDT after reports that a shooter opened fire inside. The gunman appears to be a student, KTRK reports, citing a law enforcement official. Further details of the incident were not immediately available.
“Details will be released as we receive updated information. Law enforcement will continue to secure the building and initiate all emergency management protocols to release and move students to another location,” the school district said in a statement.  Galveston County Sheriff’s Maj. Douglas Hudson said units responded to reports of shots fired. Witnesses say a gunman opened fire inside an art class during first period. A student in the class told KTRK she witnessed at least one girl being shot.

“We thought it was a fire drill at first but really, the teacher said, ‘Start running,'” the student told the news station.  Two seniors at the school told KHOU 11 their friend pulled the fire alarm after spotting the shooter and urged other students to run. They also said they saw an injured female student.  “Now I am worried about everyone else,” one student commented. “ I don’t even want to go to graduation now.”
Authorities have not yet confirmed these accounts.

President Trump tweeted Friday regarding the shooting stating, “School shooting in Texas. Early reports not looking good. God bless all!”

“Heidi and I are keeping all the students and faculty at Santa Fe High School in our prayers this morning, along with all first responders on the scene. Please be safe and heed warnings from local officials,” he said.
Aerial footage from the scene showed students standing in a grassy field while officers inspected their backpacks. At least three life-flight helicopters landed at the school.
The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) said it was also on the scene. Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez tweeted early Friday that he arrived at the school to assist officers with the Galveston County Sheriff Office.
Santa Fe is a city of about 13,000 residents, located 30 miles southeast of Houston.
The Associated Press contributed to report.

What we need is a strong Senate Majority Leader to push these rediculous backlogs past the Democrats – we don’t have this in Sen McConnell who seems more worried about pleasing Chuck U. Schumer than doing what’s right. RAB III


16 Senate Republicans Urge Colleagues to Work

Through August, Get Nominees Confirmed Faster

Sixteen Republican senators are asking their colleagues to pass a budget and confirm President Donald Trump’s nominees before the end of the fiscal year Sept. 30.   “It is time to drain the swamp, and we can help do that by keeping the pumps running in August,” Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., said at a press conferenceTuesday aimed in part at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.
“It is time to cancel the August recess, keep members here, get the spending bills passed, and get President Trump’s nominees through the Senate and working on behalf of the American people,” Daines said.   Daines signed a letter with 15 other senators asking McConnell for the Senate to work Mondays and Fridays, and nights and weekends, to confirm Trump’s judicial and executive nominees and fund the government before the Sept. 30 deadline.
“Today, 15 months into this presidency, we have 276 nominees backlogged, waiting for confirmation hearings … this is nothing but pure, unadulterated obstructionism,” Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., told reporters.    As of Wednesday, the number of pending nominations has increased to 283.
It is actually nearly 17 months since Trump took office on Jan. 20, 2017.   In their letter, the lawmakers say they hope to have the kind of success they saw last year when they campaigned to cancel the August recess and worked to confirm 77 nominations with no floor debate.


DAY OF RECKONING: Obama Officials to
Face SENATE GRILLING over Russia



The Senate Intelligence Committee is gearing up for a highly-anticipated showdown with former Obama officials Wednesday; preparing to grill top aides over allegations of Russian election interference in the 2016 race for the White House.   According to Fox News, the Committee is expected to interview former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former CIA director John Brennan, former NSA Director Michael Rogers, and possibly former FBI director James Comey.
Those close to the panel say Comey “plans to skip” Wednesday’s behind-closed-doors discussions due to a “previously scheduled engagement.”
The Committee, led by Sen. Richard Burr and Sen. Mark Warner, hope to “wrap up” their investigation by the end of the summer.   “This gives staff the month of August in all likelihood to wrap up our investigation and for staff to work intensely while we’re out of here and not getting in their hair,” said Sen. Burr.
Comey, though, plans to skip the closed-door session Wednesday due to a “previously scheduled engagement,” his attorney said.  “This gives staff the month of August in all likelihood to wrap up our investigation and for staff to work intensely while we’re out of here and not getting in their hair.”

– Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C.

Comey, who was fired last May, has been on a media blitz in recent weeks promoting his memoir, “A Higher Loyalty,” in which he is highly critical of now-President Trump.  Burr and Warner, who are leading the panel in investigating Russian meddling and coordination with Trump campaign associates in the 2016 presidential election, hope to wrap up their probe by the end of summer.
“This gives staff the month of August in all likelihood to wrap up our investigation and for staff to work intensely while we’re out of here and not getting in their hair,” Burr told reporters last week, referring to Senate members being on summer recess.   The U.S. intelligence community assessment titled “Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections,” was released just two weeks before Trump’s inauguration in January 2017—the heat of the transition between the administration of former President Barack Obama and the new Trump administration.

What You Need to Know About the Surge in
Illegal Border Crossings and the Failures of
Our Current Immigration System

WHAT: Recently, there has been a significant surge in illegal border crossings. Making matters worse, loopholes continue to prevent the removal of many illegal aliens.  

From April 2017 to April 2018, the number of illegal border crossings more than tripled. April 2018 was also the second month in a row that saw more than 37,000 individuals apprehended after entering the country illegally along our Southwest border.  The need to enforce our laws, secure our border, and close our immigration loopholes has been further underscored by the recent arrival of a “caravan” of individuals seeking to enter the United States.
Efforts to remove aliens once they illegally cross our border are hampered by glaring flaws in current statutory law and activist judicial constraints. As a result, many aliens are apprehended and temporarily detained after illegally entering, only to be quickly released into the interior of the United States.
Historically, all family units apprehended at the border have been released with little more than a paper order to appear in court at a later date. Often, they never to appear. Current law also makes it virtually impossible to return most apprehended Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) to their home countries.
Judicial rulings by activist courts have even made it virtually impossible to remove many dangerous criminal aliens.  The result of these loopholes is that aliens can illegally enter the United States, and make then fraudulent asylum claims, with the expectation that they will be released into U.S. society and never appear in court.  This breakdown has contributed to judicial backlogs of more than 690,000 active cases and a deportation backlog of more than 1 million cases.
In addition, Federal immigration officials must deal with sanctuary jurisdictions that continue to openly and lawlessly obstruct efforts to enforce our Nation’s immigration laws. Sanctuary jurisdictions, such as the State of California, often refuse requests to detain criminal illegal aliens for even short periods of time in order to assist Federal officials.
Some jurisdictions are even passing laws that would punish local law enforcement who work with Federal officials. As a result, convicted criminal aliens and those charged with serious crimes have avoided removal and have been released from law enforcement custody and back onto the street where they can prey on innocent American families and children. Sanctuary jurisdictions also endanger the safety of Federal agents who must apprehend these dangerous fugitives after their release.
WHY: Congress must take real action to secure our border and close the loopholes in our immigration system.
Legislative action to secure our border and fix our immigration system has been repeatedly obstructed by Senate Democrats. Chuck Schumer and other Senate Democrats like Jon Tester have stood in the way of legislation that would have closed loopholes in our immigration system, provided the resources needed to secure our border, and strengthened the ability of law enforcement to protect public safety. They have also blocked legislative efforts to crack down on dangerous sanctuary jurisdictions, including “Kate’s Law,” which is named after the late Kate Steinle, an American who was killed by an illegal alien with a lengthy criminal history.
President Trump has consistently called upon Congress to take action. In October 2017, President Trump sent a series of immigration priorities to Congress. The President also released an immigration framework in January 2018. These proposals, if enacted into law, would have secured our porous border and addressed many of the key problems in our immigration system.
President Trump has made clear that action must be taken, and is demanding that Congress provide the authorities and funds necessary to fully and finally secure the border.


What You Need To Know About The Community
Movement Against Sanctuary Policies

WHAT: Communities are coming out against reckless sanctuary policies and in support of our Federal immigration laws that protect the American people.

Sanctuary jurisdictions continue to hinder Federal immigration enforcement efforts. These jurisdictions often refuse even basic requests for information, such as notice to Federal officials before the release of certain criminal aliens.
California has passed statewide sanctuary policies that restrict cooperation and information-sharing between Federal immigration authorities and local law enforcement. California has enacted legislation (Senate Bill 54) which restricts local law enforcement from providing Federal immigration officials with information about the release date of certain removable criminal aliens in their custody. Senate Bill 54 also restricts the actual transfer of certain criminal aliens to Federal custody.
Communities across California have come out in opposition to the State’s sanctuary policies, including Los Alamitos, San Jacinto, San Juan Capistrano, Escondido, Laguna Niguel, and Lake Elsinore among numerous others. County governments, including Orange County and San Diego County, California’s second largest county, have also joined in opposition. Community leaders have been clear in their opposition to California’s efforts to restrict local cooperation with lawful Federal immigration enforcement.

WHY: Sanctuary policies undermine lawful immigration enforcement efforts and are responsible for the release of criminal aliens into American communities.

President Trump will be meeting with local officials from California who can speak first-hand about how sanctuary policies undermine law enforcement operations and jeopardize community safety.
California and other sanctuary jurisdictions are openly obstructing Federal efforts to take custody of and remove certain criminal aliens. As a result, dangerous criminal aliens are released back into American communities, where they have the potential to commit further crimes. For example, an alleged gang member in San Francisco was arrested more than ten times between 2013 and 2017 for charges including rape, domestic battery, and assault. However, each time San Francisco denied a request to transfer the individual to Federal custody or even notify Federal officials before releasing the individual. This is an unacceptable risk to community safety.
The President has made clear that these dangerous and obstructive sanctuary policies must end.


The United States must adopt an immigration system that serves the national interest. To restore the rule of law and secure our border, President Trump is committed to constructing a border wall and ensuring the swift removal of unlawful entrants. To protect American workers, the President supports ending chain migration, eliminating the Visa Lottery, and moving the country to a merit-based entry system. These reforms will advance the safety and prosperity of all Americans while helping new citizens assimilate and flourish.

Remarks by President Trump at a California Sanctuary State Roundtable

 IMMIGRATION    Issued on: 

Cabinet Room
3:19 P.M. EDT
THE PRESIDENT:  Good afternoon.  I’m greatly honored to be here with the courageous mayors and sheriffs and local leaders from across the state of California.  A great state.  Each of you has bravely resisted California’s deadly and unconstitutional sanctuary state laws.  You’ve gone through a lot, too, although it’s becoming quite popular what you’re doing.  A law that forces the release of illegal immigrant criminals, drug dealers, gang members, and violent predators into your communities.
California’s law provides safe harbor to some of the most vicious and violent offenders on Earth, like MS-13 gang members putting innocent men, women, and children at the mercy of these sadistic criminals.  But we’re moving them out of this country by the thousands.  MS-13, we’re grabbing them by the thousands and we’re getting them out, Kevin.
We’re also joined by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.  Jeff, thank you.  The Secretary of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen.  Secretary, thank you very much.  I know you folks are keeping busy, right?  Keeping busy at those borders.  And Deputy ICE Director, Tom Homan, who’s going to be leaving us soon for a life of retirement.  But there’s no such thing as retirement for Tom.  (Applause.)
You’ve done a fantastic job, and we appreciate it very much, Tom.  Incredible job.
HOMAN:  I’m not leaving the fight, sir.
THE PRESIDENT:  I know that.  Oh, you’ll never leave the fight.  No, you’ll always be in.
Also with us is House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who’s been a special friend of mine.  He represents California’s 23rd Congressional District, and he is very, very popular.  And I just recently saw a poll of Kevin.  I think the opposition might as well just go home, because Kevin, they love him out there and he’s done an incredible job.  He’s brought it home.  And we appreciate it, Kevin, the great job you’ve done for the country.  Thank you very much.
Unfortunately, Congress — and I’d have to say, congressional Democrats — you take a look at what has been going on and what’s going on with the laws, whether it’s catch and release, whether it’s any of the things that we’re fighting for so hard.
Now, we have started the wall.  We’re spending $1.6 billion between fixing and starting.  You know, Melissa, what’s been going on.  We’re getting it up.  We have a lot of folks in California, they don’t talk about it, but they want the wall up, and they’re very happy.  That’s one of the reasons we started in California.  But we made a lot of progress on it, and now we’re going for the full funding for the wall, and we’re going to try and get that as soon as possible.  But it’s become a very popular issue.
In January, the Los Angeles Police Department arrested an illegal immigrant from Mexico for drug possession.  Instead of honoring the ICE detainer, they set him free.  Just a few weeks later, he was arrested again, this time for murder.  So they arrested him, they had him, they let him go.  Tom, you’ve seen this.  They let him go, and he killed somebody.  And it’s happening more and more.  And we get them out as fast as we can.  We have the worst laws anywhere in the world for illegal immigration.  There’s no place in the world that has laws like we do.
Catch and release — think of it.  We catch somebody, we find out they’re criminals.  We end up having to release them, and they go into our society.  Now, we do the best we can, I’ll tell you.  We do better than anybody.  And our numbers are much better than in the past, but they’re not nearly acceptable and not nearly as good as what we could have.  We’re down 40 percent from those other standards, so that’s really good — meaning 40 percent crossings.  So that’s good.  But we can do — we can do much better.

WHITE HOUSE READS April 17th – Not re-written by Fake News


Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding
the United States-United Arab Emirates Open
Skies Understanding

The United States and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have reached an understanding related to the United States–UAE Open Skies agreement that will benefit pilots, flight attendants, machinists, and other working men and women in America’s airline industry. In the newly negotiated understanding, it was recognized that government subsidies undermine healthy and fair competition.  The UAE has committed to financial transparency and will adhere to internationally-recognized accounting, disclosure, compliance, and auditing standards to make its practices more open and subject to public view and scrutiny. Lastly, the UAE informed the United States that its air carriers have no current plans to begin any new commercial “Fifth Freedom” flight routes, which are of particular concern to the U.S. carriers. The understanding mirrors the one made with Qatar earlier this year.
This understanding was the result of a White House task force co-led by the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy and the National Economic Council, and including representatives from the Department of State and the Department of Transportation and other key Federal agencies.
With this understanding, President Donald J. Trump has again shown his commitment to American jobs and American companies.


President Trump Hails Local California Lawmakers for Standing Up Against State’s ‘Sanctuary’ Laws

“President Trump on Wednesday praised local California leaders for standing up to ‘deadly and unconstitutional sanctuary state laws’ and hailed what he called a ‘rebellion’ against the state’s immigration policies,” Adam Shaw reports for Fox News.
“The state of California’s attempts to nullify federal law have sparked a rebellion by patriotic citizens who want their families protected and their borders secured,” the President said at a White House roundtable with local officials.

Tia Goldenberg and Fares Akram report for The Associated Press that Guatemala followed President Trump’s lead and moved its embassy to Jerusalem, Israel, on Wednesday. Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales sent a message of “love, peace and fraternity” to Israel.

In Fox News, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich writes that “President Trump’s drug price reduction plan – American Patients First, which he announced last week – is an impressive and thorough effort to fix the underlying dynamics in the pharmaceutical marketplace that have made drugs too expensive for most Americans.” Gingrich explains that “it is a perfect example of how the Trump administration is working to reform our health-care system to save American lives and money.”

Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX) writes in The Hill that President Trump’s historic rescissions package is “a welcome step to cut wasteful spending.” She adds that “Republicans made a promise to the American public that we would always put the American taxpayer first, and that’s exactly what President Trump’s plan to cut spending does.”

“Gina Haspel passed her first Senate hurdle to becoming the first woman to lead the CIA, winning approval of the intelligence committee Wednesday morning,” Stephen Dinan and Dan Boylan write in The Washington Times. “The 10-5 vote saw two Democrats join Republicans, including committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner, who said she’ll be a capable and independent leader.”

“From the economy to important victories across the vast Asian continent, America is winning under Trump’s leadership,” Steve Cortes writes in the Washington Examiner.




New Clinton Emails Reveal Classified Docs,
Clinton Foundation Connections



By Gary Maher –

Judicial Watch today released 281 pages of newly uncovered emails of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from the U.S. Department of State sent and received over her unsecure, non-“” email system. The emails, dated 2010 through 2013, contain classified information and detail collusion between the Clinton State Department and the Clinton Foundation.
Ten emails contain classified information redacted “in the interest of national defense or foreign policy,” including confidential sources, and concern Israel and the Middle East. Most of the emails include exchanges with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. The emails show Hillary Clinton conducted classified and sensitive negotiations about the Israel-Arab conflict on her unsecure, non-governmental server.
  • A document labeled “plan” was completely redacted as classified.
  • A November 2012 email chain discusses the “Mid East” and includes then-Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan, Blair as “aclb” and Clinton.
  • Another November 2012 email chain discusses the “Mid East” and includes Sullivan, Clinton’s office manager Claire Coleman, Blair and Clinton.
  • A November 2012 email chain fully redacted is titled “Mid East Peace” and includes Blair, Clinton, Obama’s Special Envoy to the Middle East David Hale as “,” Sullivan and Blair’s Chief of Staff and former Downing Street aide Catherine Rimmer.
  • In an April 2011 email exchange between Blair, Clinton and Sullivan concerning “Israel,” Blair says he “had another long session with BB [Netanyahu].”
  • A May 2011 exchange concerns “Israel” and includes Blair, Clinton and Sullivan.
  • A May 2011 email concerns “Palestinians” and includes Blair, Clinton and Sullivan. Blair says, “I’ve also sent you a paper.”
  • A June 2011 email regarding “Israel” includes Blair, Sullivan and Clinton. Blair says, “Saw Israeli PM. Put the concept of a Q statement. He was receptive. Palestinians interested too. I know there are discussions also you guys are having. And the French initiative….”
  • In a July 2011 email – with several national security redactions – written by Blair to Clinton and Sullivan, Blair says, “I saw BB….. Molcho [chief negotiator in the Israeli negotiating team with the Palestinians] will speak to David Hale. I can see Cameron and Sarkozy with David…. I saw Egyptians….”
  • A September 2010 email exchange is titled “Info for you,” and includes Sullivan, Blair and Clinton. Blair writes that he just spent three hours with Netanyahu, and Sullivan, using his Sprint BlackBerry, he writes “We have pitched this to [redacted].”
These new classified and other emails appear to be among those that Clinton had attempted to delete or had otherwise failed to disclose. The documents are part of the November 2017 accelerated schedule of production ordered by U.S. District Court Judge James E. Boasberg. The State Department must now complete processing the remaining documents by September 28, 2018. There were 72,000 pages recovered by the FBI in its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illicit email server. The State Department’s original production rate would have put the completion date into 2020.

Senator McCain you really want to know who can go to hell? You did it because you hate Trump!


McCain: Releasing Steele Dossier Was ‘Duty,’ Anyone Who Disagrees Can ‘Go to Hell’

Arizona senator and longtime Trump opponent John McCain has no remorse for passing along the infamous Trump dossier to the FBI, according to excerpts released from his upcoming book, “The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations.”   The 81-year-old senator admitted in January last year that he gave the FBI the dossier, which was filled with unverified allegations against President Donald Trump and raised the possibility that the president may be vulnerable to Russian blackmail.
McCain received hard copies of the dossier from Fusion GPS, a political opposition research firm, and then gave a copy to the FBI, Fox News reported.
Later in January, the entire dossier was published by BuzzFeed.
 “Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,” McCain said then.
“Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the director of the FBI. That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue,” he said.   Now, over one year later, McCain said he “would do it again,” according to excerpts from his book published by the Guardian.
McCain wrote that he did “what duty demanded I do” and “anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell.    The Republican senator said the nature of the allegations meant he had to take them seriously.
“I had no idea which if any were true,” he wrote. “I could not independently verify any of it, and so I did what any American who cares about our nation’s security should have done.”

Byron York   @ByronYork

 The president has consistently denied the veracity of the dossier’s contents, calling it the “fake news dossier.”

Donald J. Trump   @realDonaldTrump

   An exclusive report from Fox News last year stated that former British spy and the man behind the dossier, Christopher Steele, used McCain as his American contact to get the document to the FBI.   “The man (Sir Andrew Wood) who says he acted as a ‘go-between’ last year to inform Sen. John McCain about the controversial ‘dossier’ containing salacious allegations about then-candidate Donald Trump is speaking out, revealing how the ex-British spy who researched the document helped coordinate its release to the FBI, the media and Capitol Hill,” Fox News reported.
“Wood says he was instructed — by former British spy Christopher Steele — to reach out to the senior Republican, whom Wood called ‘a good man,’ about the unverified document,” the report continued.  McCain wrote that after receiving the document, he immediately passed it on to then-FBI Director James Comey.   “I said I didn’t know what to make of it, and I trusted the FBI would examine it carefully and investigate its claims,” he wrote. “With that, I thanked the director and left. The entire meeting had probably not lasted longer than ten minutes.”
“The Restless Wave” is slated to be published May 22.

We’re “tired of these state and local jurisdictions who are thumbing their nose at our duly enacted immigration laws,”

Exclusive: Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf,
Who Tipped Off Illegal Aliens to ICE
Sweep, Faces Lawsuit

The Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) will file a lawsuit Monday seeking to force Oakland, California, to produce documents related to its mayor Libby Schaaf’s decision to tip off illegal aliens to a major enforcement action in February, IRLI Executive Director Dale Wilcox revealed for the first time on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Sunday.
We’re “tired of these state and local jurisdictions who are thumbing their nose at our duly enacted immigration laws,” Wilcox told Breitbart News Deputy Political Editor Amanda House.
In February, a San Francisco Bay-wide operation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) aimed at criminal illegal aliens netted 232 apprehensions, including 115 with serious criminal records. But, according to ICE Director Thomas Homan, more than 800 others escaped after Libby Schaaf broke the secrecy of the action, explicitly in order to protect illegals from discovery.
In a Fox and Friends interview in the aftermath of the operation, an outraged Homan accused Schaaf of acting like “a gang lookout yelling ‘police.’” Attorney General Jeff Sessions was even more emphatic. “How dare you?” he asked during his announcement of his department’s lawsuits to strike down California’s so-called “sanctuary” policies. “How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical open borders agenda?”
Schaaf defended her actions, claiming they did not endanger law enforcement and only told “people what the law is, what their rights are, what their resources are.”
IRLI requested copies of emails and other internal communications between Schaff and her top-level staff related to Schaaf’s public tip-off under the California Public Records Act (CPRA), but according to IRLI’s complaint, the assigned deadline passed without any documents being produced. IRLI is now suing to force Oakland to hand over the documents.
“I think [the documents are] going to expose [Schaaf and her staff] radical open-borders philosophy and how … [Schaaf] has been scheming with the chief of police,” Wilcox told House about what IRLI hopes their lawsuit will uncover. “She has mentioned in news reports about conversations she’s had with her chief of police over tipping off illegal aliens. She’s been quite brazen. She’s actually said she’s willing to go to jail to defend criminal illegal aliens.”
Schaaf’s tip-off provoked a strong reaction but rocketed her into the forefront of politics in California, where she is running for re-election. The gambit attracted the endorsement of rising Resistance star Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), for example.
This IRLI suit against Schaaf is taking place amid a backdrop of contempt for federal immigration laws across the Golden State, most clearly exhibited by the three sanctuary state laws the Justice Department is seeking to invalidate. Most galling of these for immigration hawks like Wilcox is AB 450, which prohibits private employers from cooperating with federal immigration enforcement. “This is the State of California telling employers – private employers, we’re not talking about public agencies – … ‘you’re not allowed to cooperate with ICE either,’” Wilcox told House.
In turn, Schaaf and California’s resistance to federal immigration laws fits into the larger, nationwide effort by liberal jurisdictions to protect illegal aliens at the expense or in disregard of American citizens and legal residents. Wilcox cited a recent study by IRLI’s sister group the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) that showed over half of Americans now live in some kind of sanctuary jurisdiction.
“Since President [Donald] Trump has taken office, it’s been like dominoes with these open-borders agitators. … The sanctuary policies have just multiplied,” Wilcox explained. “Of course we know what the politicians – what’s behind their push for open borders. It’s a desire for more votes eventually. If [illegal aliens] get to stay, if they get citizenship, then they’re going to vote. And we see, sadly, that one party has adopted a position on this issue and they’re counting on those votes in the future.”

I sincerely hope this is not representative for our next generation of leaders!

Friday, May 11, 2018
Dear John,
In April, I received an invitation from the White House to attend a briefing for leaders of conservative organizations. You never know about meetings like these. I have been to many that turned out to be just a dog and pony show without much substance. But that was not the case this time. About 40 groups were represented to hear directly from some of the top officials in the Trump administration, people who meet with the president on a regular basis.
Donald Trump was not my first choice for president. I voted for another candidate during the primary. With Trump, I would cheer what he said one day, and be aghast at something he would say the next. After the primaries, it was clear that Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton would be president of the United States.
As Trump went forward, he took some actions and made some pronouncements that made me more and more comfortable with his campaign. For one, he named Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana as his running mate. Pence is an evangelical Christian. He understands a biblical worldview.
The one issue I did have with Gov. Pence is that he gave in to some of the demands of the LGBTQ mob on a religious freedom law in the Hoosier state a couple of years back. Even so, I thought that having Pence as his vice presidential running mate meant that Trump wanted a committed Christian as his top confidant and advisor.
However, the most important statement Trump made to conservatives came when he issued a list of judges he would promote to the federal bench if elected. No other Republican candidate would dare do that. They are too afraid of what the liberal news media will do to them if they announce only conservative judges need apply. Trump didn’t care. He got those names from the Federalist Society, a stalwart conservative legal group who does not compromise on standing for the U.S. Constitution.
I think he was also smart enough to know that unless he was able to get conservatives excited about his candidacy, he had no shot at defeating Clinton. I am pleased to report that so far, President Trump has followed through on his promise to appoint only conservative judges to the federal bench including the appointment and confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
Another issue candidate Trump made a commitment on was being a pro-life president. Again, he has followed through on this promise in many ways. Every pro-life leader I know has praised Trump as being our “most pro-life president since Ronald Reagan.”
With any administration there will be some good and some bad. I can honestly say that up to the time of this writing, President Trump has done a lot more good than bad on conservative issues across the board. This despite the fact that he is attacked day and night, 24/7 by the liberal news media and the Democrats. Furthermore, he is often undermined by the Republican establishment.
Does Trump sometimes say and Tweet things many of his supporters, especially Christians, would cringe at? Yes. But you have to remember he’s still a hardened New York businessman who has basically lived his whole life among liberals and degenerates, himself a playboy.
However,  if you listen to people like the ones I met at the meeting in April, this is not the same man he was for his many decades in the celebrity limelight. He is more serious minded, and he is what I would call an old school patriot.
In America we only have one president at a time. I do know one thing for certain – Hillary Clinton would have been a catastrophe for our country and a real enemy of Christians and the constitution.
I can’t do anything about what Donald Trump did 10, 20, or 30 years ago. But while he is our one president, I can do something now to help keep him on the straight and narrow on the issues AFA cares about most. And if he and his administration want to hear from me, I will gladly go to Washington, D.C. to tell them what I think.
I pray that I’ll represent you well. And most of all, I pray that I’ll represent God well.
Thank you,
Tim Wildmon, President

Well Johnny What Did You Learn At School Today?

Well Johnny What Did You Learn At School Today?

By educating the young generation along the right lines, the People’s State will have to see to it that a generation of mankind is formed which will be adequate to this supreme combat that will decide the destinies of the world.”  —Adolf Hitler

It’s 3 O’clock in the afternoon when little Johnny comes barging through the front door after school, throws his back pack into a corner and heads for the refrigerator.  He yanks open the refrigerator door and pulls out a carton of milk.  He gets a glass from the cupboard and fills the glass full from the milk carton.  He gulps down the milk and heads for his bedroom where his play station awaits his anxious fingers.  But before he can leave the kitchen, his mom says, “Wait a minute Johnny, I want to hear how your day at school went.”  Johnny says, “Oh mom!” and returns to the kitchen.

Mom says,  “tell me what happened at school today.   What did you learn?”  It was only the second day of Johnny’s third grade school year and Johnny’s mom wanted to discretely check out what her son was learning at school, if anything.  She’s heard stories from other moms and read articles on how the curriculum at school wasn’t what it used to be where the focus was on reading, writing and arithmetic.

So she asked Johnny, “what were your different classes today?”  Johnny replied with, “well, we had social studies, the benefits of multi-culturalism, the positive effects of massive immigration from poor countries, how humans are killing the planet with carbon dioxide emissions, collectivism is the only true way for people to interact and individualism is selfish, the stereotypical myths about marriage, sex and transgender people, the merging of nations into world government, how political correctness can be used in society in order not to offend people, and some more stuff I can’t remember.

Johnny’s mom opened her mouth in disbelief and said somewhat excitedly, “didn’t you do any reading, or have any math problems, or practice penmanship and writing in cursive?”  Johnny replied casually, “no, I think that is next year’s stuff mom.”

Johnny’s mom decided to probe further.  “So Johnny, what did you learn about humans causing excessive carbon dioxide emissions?” Johnny couldn’t quite contain his irritation with the question and said, “Mom, it’s only the second day of school.  The teacher only told us that scientists have confirmed that human carbon dioxide emissions are causing the planet to heat up and if we don’t stop it, we’re all going to die.”

Johnny’s mom was aghast that the teacher would use fear to scare the kids.  She had done a little reading on weather and climate change and concluded that the science was not settled yet on human caused global warming.  Why didn’t the teacher bring out both sides of the issue instead of focusing on only one side?  Why indeed!

Now she was really curious and asked Johnny, “so what did you learn about marriage, sex and transgender people?”   She could tell that Johnny was shy and reluctant about even responding to the question and he squirmed in his chair before he opened his mouth to speak.  “Mom, do we really have to talk about this now?  Can’t we do it later, maybe when dad comes home?

Not satisfied with Johnny’s deflection of the question, sensing there was something deeper in his thinking, she pressed further and said, “what did the teacher say about marriage?”  Johnny blurted out with, “well mom the teacher said anyone can get married.  Marriage doesn’t have to be limited to just a man and woman and then she said anyone can have sex too.

Johnny’s mom was a practicing Christian and she just couldn’t believe that public school children would be subjected to this kind of extremely sensitive information that younger age children could even fathom, much less process in their undeveloped minds.  It could only be construed as social indoctrination as practiced by dictators and communist countries, but hardly in a free society.

Johnny’s mom was beginning to get really disturbed by these revelations coming out of the mouth of her seven-year old son.  She asked Johnny, “what does multi-culturalism mean?”

Johnny looked at his mom with a blank stare on his face and said, “multi-culturalism is where different kinds of people with different backgrounds, religions and cultures can live together in peace and harmony.”  Johnny seemed to be quoting something from memory that he had seen written on a piece of paper.

She said to Johnny, “do you believe what you were told about multi-culturalism?”  Johnny, getting even more uncomfortable with these questions said, “I don’t know mom, can’t I go play with my play station now.”

No not yet Johnny, I have one more question.  Do you know why the teacher told you that individualism was being selfish?  Do you know what collectivism really means?”

Johnny looked at his mom, obviously peeved at her asking these questions and said “I have no idea mom.  Can I go now?

Yes Johnny, you can go, but when your father comes home, we are going to have a family discussion about what you are learning in school.  And tomorrow I am going to go have a long talk with the school superintendent.

Johnny rushed out of the kitchen and headed upstairs to his room where something he could understand awaited him and didn’t ask him questions.

Johnny’s mom was very eager to find out more of what her son was learning in school and why the curriculum was not focused more on what she thought he was supposed to be learning.  A sense of foreboding came over her.  What if she has no clout or capability to change the current school curriculum away from blatant government indoctrination?  She decided to look very seriously into home schooling.

The foregoing story was an overt dramatization of what is happening in public schools today.  Yes, it is an exaggeration, but only to prove a point.  Purposely subtle government and special interest brainwashing and indoctrination are happening at ever earlier ages.  There have been many overtures, mostly by liberals, to expand public education into pre-school where socialist and environmental indoctrination can be set in stone at ages from one to five years old.  Government, along with socialist and environmental special interest groups are fully aware of the power of our “Little Black Box” theory and are hell bent on filling up the “Little Black Box” in every American child with government propaganda when they are just barely out of the womb.

From our “Little Black Box” article:

“The ‘Little Black Box’ theory explains many facets of normal and abnormal behavior in the vast majority of humans. It explains radical Islam. It explains a Hitler, a Stalin, a Putin, a Mao, a Mussolini, a Saddam Hussein, a Gaddafi and a Bashar Al-Asad (current brutal dictator of Syria) and it even explains an Obama or a Trump. But it also explains why we are Democrats, Republicans, Baptists, Catholics, Protestants, Muslims, Mormons, communists, socialists, Marxists and a whole host of other belief systems. We are who we are because we have been “shaped” that way by genetics and by our immediate environmental influences. Unfortunately, none of this content is as a result of our own personal choices.”

One could ask, how long will it be before a future American government forms Hitler-type youth camps to fill up young children’s ‘Little Black Boxes’, for diabolical (or political) purposes ….. to create little spies to rat on government dissenters and to control the minds and behavior of an entire country? Could it come in the form of government-operated pre-schools, like have been proposed by Progressives? If you don’t believe that this is happening, read Beverly Eakman’s article entitled “Obama’s Early Learning Challenge and our Failed Education System” HERE, then decide!”

Or, are we there already?

Why would government want to collect data on the emotional, psychological, behavioral and academic achievements of every school child in America, as they are purportedly doing under the “Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)?

Ever since the introduction of the 1960’s “New Math”, (when my son was about 6 or 7 years old – he’s now 54) the creation of the U. S. Department of Education, Common Core State Standards and the No Child Left Behind Act, the federal government has systematically, through the process of creeping evolution, taken control of public and college education in America.  Rather than putting a priority on learning the information necessary for a young adult to function successfully in a changing technological world, they taint every subject with social and environmental hogwash.

Here are some excerpts from Common Core State Standards on math instruction from our previous article on the subject.

“Promoting and supporting equitable practices for students is a complex process and is best supported when your collaborative team examines several factors.  The National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics’ (2008) position statement on equity recommends that mathematics educators:”

  • “Respond to equity as a meaningful process to address social justice issues of race, language, gender, and class bias.” (what has this have to do with math?)
  • “Embrace a mindset shift from a student deficit perspective of equity to a focus on creating opportunities for equal access to meaningful mathematics.” (what in the world is “meaningful mathematics?”)
  • “Recognize underachievement not as a result of group membership but more likely a symptom of varying beliefs, opportunities and experiences to learn mathematics.” (meaningless mumbo jumbo!)

This so-called mathematics-teaching document finished with:

“Recognizing and responding to these important facets of equity will promote the rich conversations needed in your collaborative team to promote high-quality instruction and equitable classrooms.

What has “equity” have to do with teaching mathematics?  Ludicrous!

Are you getting the picture?

Educated idiots (psychologists, sociologists, and academic educationalists) in government and academia have taken tried and proven teaching methods and turned them into blatant social, environmental, collectivist, multi-cultural and one-world-order indoctrination.   Only over-educated, arrogant, narcissistic, socialist bird brains could make a simple process of learning into something unnecessarily and laboriously complex.

Today, every new teacher that enters the class room and several generations of current teachers have received teaching degrees from mostly liberal colleges and are fully indoctrinated with un-American ideologies and socialist biases that influence the subject matter in every one of their class rooms.   There are some exceptions of course, but the majority of teachers are Progressives ….. by design.

The die is cast.  The government brainwashing education train is speeding faster and faster down the track and the goal is preordained, a nation of pre-programmed, compliant, socialist state robots that dance to the government’s drummer.  Hitler would be proud!

It’s America’s kids they are brainwashing.  What are Americans going to do about it?  From our perspective, probably nothing! [Read: “Public School – Public Menace“]

What would you do?
