Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader and longtime Representative from the pretentious City by the Bay, San Francisco recently lashed out at ICE agents enforcing Federal Immigration Laws by saying:
“The people of California will not be bowed by the Trump administration’s brazen aggression and intimidation tactics,” the California Democrat said. “Californians will continue to proudly keep our doors open to the immigrants who make America more American. We will fight this sham lawsuit and will fight all cowardly attacks on our immigrant communities.”
Current acting ICE Directoy Homan said that his officers put “their lives on the line” each day for their country, “So how dare you call them cowardly.”
Recently Oakland mayor said that she will be offering protection to the illegal immigrants by informing them of all pending ICE operations within her city. This along with several laws that the Commie State of California has passed thumb their noses at the federal government, whose duty is to enforce Federal Immigration Law.
“ICE went in there and removed these people from the community. So that’s far from terrorizing. We’re protecting people, we’re protecting the American public,” Homan said.
Sounds like Pelosi needs a quick lesson in not offending our men and women in uniform. It worries me that she can continue to get away with so many missteps, but then again, she is being elected in the most backwards part of our nation.
Have you seen the market recently? Your 401k? IRA? E*Trade account?
Welcome to the Donald Trump Stock Market.
This first full week of February has been a frantic one. Since the inauguration of Donald J Trump as the 45th President of the United States, the market overall has gone on a huge upswing. Donald Trump lays claim to those gains through his massive Tax overhaul as well as creating a positive atmosphere for our economy with less restrictions and more confidence in the American market. With a booming economy, there are bound to be corrections to the market. On Monday, February 5th, the 10 year yield on Bonds hit 2.75%.
The CBOE Volatility index, which is a Market “Spook” meter, also spiked, causing a large selloff of almost 1600 points within a matter of minutes. The markets rebounded and the day only took a 800 point dip. The following day, the markets rebounded even further, with the Dow rising by 567 points. Only time will tell what the long term impacts will be from this volatility.
Now there will be many political conspiracy theorists that will say this is a “Deep State Ploy” to destroy the reputation of Donald Trump, or the “Democrats did it”. The truth is that the Market needs to be corrected. The huge upswing needs to get rid of the casual investors who bought for an upswing. I feel sorry for the ones that had placed Sell Stops on their portfolio and sold at the lowest point only to see that stocks rebounded nicely within just a couple of minutes.
The best investing strategy is always buy to invest, not to trade. People now are starting to invest in America, rather than previous administrations who continually traded away and gambled with America’s future by sending our jobs, our plants, and our resources overseas.
One of the first promises of Donald Trump during his campaign was to protect the American People against foreign invaders. One week after he was sworn into office, he signed the executive order that put restrictions on the absolutely outlandish refugee program that President Obama had put into effect. Here are some of the key points that changed:
Puts a halt on the US Refugee Admissions Program for only 120 days as it overhauls the vetting process.
It includes an indefinite ban on Syrian refugees.
It also puts a 90 day visa suspension on anyone coming from the following seven countries: Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. Categories not affected are diplomats and the UN
The order also puts a limit on the number of refugees accepted from 110,000 under President Obama down to 50,000.
Priority will be given to religious minorities facing persecution in their countries, such as Christians in Syria
Exceptions could be made on a case-by-case basis
At first glance to anyone with a brain, you can see that this is a temporary limiting of people entering the country from countries that are basically active war zones. Why would the United States be willing to open its doors to its enemies or people who want to do harm or sympathize with the enemy. Iran has been a state sponsor of terror and sworn enemy to the American people. Sudan is engaged in an extremely brutal civil war with its own people. Syria is the capital of ISIS, who commit atrocities on a daily basis.
“The Constitution and acts of Congress confer on the President broad authority to prevent aliens abroad from entering this country when he deems it in the nation’s interest,” said Solicitor General Noel Francisco in court documents.
Yet ever since the travel restrictions were put in place, the Alt-Left has tried to make this a case about race. Never-mind the facts that these countries pose serious risks to the safety of all Americans, or that we cannot vet these people properly thanks to a weak Obama State Department. The Left brought their case to courts that had obvious leanings and close ties to the previous administration. Two separate times the lower courts overturned the Trump Travel Ban, allowing our country to be put at risk under the guise of Political Correctness. Both of the court cases that struck down the travel ban were Obama appointees. Let that sink in.
Foreign invaders were able to infiltrate the refugee program for almost a full year before Monday December 4th the highest court in the land passed judgement that until the case is heard before them, the travel ban will be enforced.
Immigration is one of those issues that has had strong historical significance to this country. While it is true that this country is a nation of immigrants, no one denies that, the facts still remain that a temporary travel ban until the vetting process does not stop the legal immigration process. People will still be allowed in on a case by case basis.
As for the argument that the President cannot block immigrants, that is completely false. The power over foreign policy rests with the executive branch solely. “The Constitution and acts of Congress confer on the President broad authority to prevent aliens abroad from entering this country when he deems it in the nation’s interest,” said Solicitor General Noel Francisco in court documents. So why do we have this fight currently in the courts with regards to the travel ban? Because activist Judges that were appointed by President Obama have been packed into the courts.
Federal Judges and all Judges for that matter, should enforce the rules of law as stated by laws currently on the books, enforce the laws according to the constitution and their interpretation of the constitution. They cannot go against precedent, and the constitution itself that specifically enumerates the powers of the executive branch with regards to immigration.
After this huge win, there is nothing the activist judges can do to reverse the decision of the highest court in the land. The case will be heard before the Supreme Court, where true conservative judges can educate the lower court judges what impartiality and constitutionality is.
And after the decision is handed down, the Alt-Left and the liberal snowflakes will have to accept this decision, just like they must accept that Donald Trump is their President.
It comes as no surprise really the latest accusations against Al Franken.
He comes from Hollywood, and he is a Democrat.
In a piece written by Leann Tweeden, she describes the encounters with Senator Franken in December of 2006. What is even more despicable is the fact it happened during a USO tour. Using his stature as a comedian and as the headliner on the tour, he “insisted that they rehearse the kiss” in a scene he wrote for her. Continuing to pressure her. When she finally relented, she figured that she would turn her head away at the last minute, but Franken “aggressively stuck his tongue down her mouth.” She pushed him away and warned him. During the actual performance, she turned her head to avoid the kiss altogether. What makes matters worse is that Mr. Franken decided to retaliate against her drawing devil horns on some of her head shots.
On the way home, she fell asleep on the plane and when she got home and reviewed the CD of the photos of the tour, she was surprised to find a picture of Franken groping her while she was asleep.
But wait, there is more to this despicable human.
Later today, there was another accuser, Media Equalizer Co-Founder Melanie Morgan who detailed the encounter in August 2000 on an episode of Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher. Apparently after confronting Franken on air about some incorrect talking points (suprise surprise), he obsessed about getting her phone number, and what she felt was stalking behavior.
Of course, everyone is innocent until proven guilty right? Except in this case we actually have a picture of the victim and her predator.
There is only one thing left to do…
Senator Franken, do the honorable thing and restore dignity to the government by stepping down. Resign immediately.
