"President Donald Trump will reportedly end the CIA program authorized by former President Barack Obama in 2013 that armed Syrian rebel groups against forces allied with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“It was never sufficient, and it was a bad substitute for American seriousness in getting Assad to do what Obama told him to do: step aside,” said Fred Hof, director of the Atlantic Council’s Rafik Hariri Center and former special adviser for transition in Syria.

The decision comes just three months after Trump ordered the U.S. Navy to launch dozens of cruise missiles from the USS Ross and the USS Porter at a Syrian airfield that Assad reportedly used to carry out a chemical attack that killed dozens of civilians in Syria." http://www.westernjournalism.com/trump- ... tyalliance

Rep. Walter Jones Appeals to President Trump To Get US Out of Afghanistan
Rep. Walter Jones Posted on July 20, 2017
President Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW

Washington, D.C. 20500

Dear Mr. President:

Many of us in the U.S. House of Representatives believe we have been denied our sacred duty to debate and declare war. You could say that I am disappointed by this. Disappointed because after 16 years in Afghanistan, Congress deserves another vote on this conflict. Disappointed because almost $1 trillion of taxpayers’ money has been spent with no direct goal or strategy. And most importantly, I am disappointed because we continue to lose American lives.

Sir, I am writing today because you seem to have had a change of heart on this issue:

1. In August of 2011, you agreed with Ron Paul and said the US was “wasting lives and money in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

2. In 2012, you referred to Afghanistan as a “complete waste,” and declared it was “time to come home.”

3. The next year, you said on Twitter, “Do not allow our very stupid leaders to sign a deal that keeps us in Afghanistan through 2024 – with all costs by U.S.A…”

4. You also tweeted that year, “Let’s get out of Afghanistan. Our troops are being killed by the Afghanis we train and we waste billions there. Nonsense! Rebuild the USA.”

Mr. President, I agree with those remarks, and so does the 31st Commandant of Marines Corps, my friend, and unofficial advisor, General Chuck Krulak. As he said in a recent email to me, “NO ONE has ever conquered Afghanistan…and many have tried. We will join the list of Nations that have tried and failed.”

Mr. President, that is why I am asking you to review this thinking before approving any troop level increases from General Mattis. I believe you would see great benefit and wisdom in asking Congress to debate and vote on troop level increases as well. You would then have the American people and their elected officials share a decision to send more of our sons and daughters into harm’s way. Once you come to a consensus, I suggest you publicly go before the American people and US military to explain the benchmarks you choose for Afghanistan. Previous administrations have not been able to clarify those endpoints, which is unfair to taxpayers and our troops. In the end, we all share this responsibility, and it is time that not only Congress but also the American people have a say. Sixteen years is enough!

Afghanistan is the graveyard of empires! We do not want a tombstone to read “United States of America.”

Respectfully,

Walter B. Jones
Member of Congress (R-NC)

Talking about ending a CIA-administered program is meaningless, Elizabeth, when there are boots on the ground now in Syria. Donald still gets his daily supply of blood-letting, only this time US troops are doing it instead of so-called Syrian rebels.

William Astore on Silencing War Criticism
Posted on July 18, 2017

Grisly photos that show war as it is, in this case a dead Iraqi from Desert Storm, are not shown by the U.S. media

Jesse Ventura, former governor of Minnesota (1999-2003), was a hot media commodity as the Bush/Cheney administration was preparing for its invasion of Iraq in 2003. Ventura, a U.S. Navy veteran who gained notoriety as a professional wrestler before he entered politics, was both popular and outspoken. MSNBC won the bidding war for his services in 2003, signing him to a lucrative three-year contract to create his own show – until, that is, the network learned he was against the Iraq war. Ventura’s show quickly went away, even as the network paid him for three years to do nothing.

I heard this revealing story from a new podcast, the TARFU Report, hosted by Matt Taibbi and Alex Pareene. By his own account, Jesse Ventura was bought off by the network, which back then was owned by General Electric, a major defense contractor that was due to make billions of dollars off the war.

Of course, Ventura was hardly the only war critic to run afoul of GE/NBC. Phil Donahue, the famous talk show host, saw his highly rated show canceled when he gave dissenters and antiwar voices a fair hearing. Ashleigh Banfield, a reporter who covered the Iraq war, gave a speech in late April 2003 that criticized the antiseptic coverage of the war (extracts to follow below). For her perceptiveness and her honesty, she was reassigned and marginalized, demoted and silenced.

So much for freedom of speech, as well as the press.

Trump team seeks to control, block Mueller’s Russia investigation

Some of President Trump’s lawyers are exploring ways to limit or undercut special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s Russia investigation, building a case against what they allege are his conflicts of interest and discussing the president’s authority to grant pardons, according to people familiar with the effort.

Trump has asked his advisers about his power to pardon aides, family members and even himself in connection with the probe, according to one of those people. A second person said Trump’s lawyers have been discussing the president’s pardoning powers among themselves.

Trump’s legal team declined to comment on the issue. But one adviser said the president has simply expressed a curiosity in understanding the reach of his pardoning authority, as well as the limits of Mueller’s investigation.

“This is not in the context of, ‘I can’t wait to pardon myself,’ ” a close adviser said.

With the Russia investigation continuing to widen, Trump’s lawyers are working to corral the probe and question the propriety of the special counsel’s work. They are actively compiling a list of Mueller’s alleged potential conflicts of interest, which they say could serve as a way to stymie his work, according to several of Trump’s legal advisers.

A conflict of interest is one of the possible grounds that can be cited by an attorney general to remove a special counsel from office under Justice Department regulations that set rules for the job.

The president is also irritated by the notion that Mueller’s probe could reach into his and his family’s finances, advisers said.

Trump has been fuming about the probe in recent weeks as he has been informed about the legal questions that he and his family could face. His primary frustration centers on why allegations that his campaign coordinated with Russia should spread into scrutinizing many years of Trump dealmaking. He has told aides he was especially disturbed after learning Mueller would be able to access several years of his tax returns.

Trump has repeatedly refused to make his tax returns public after first claiming he could not do so because he was under audit or after promising to release them after an IRS audit was completed. All presidents since Jimmy Carter have released their tax returns.

Further adding to the challenges facing Trump’s outside lawyers, the team’s spokesman, Mark Corallo, resigned on Thursday, according to two people familiar with his departure. Corallo did not respond to immediate requests for comment.

“If you’re looking at Russian collusion, the president’s tax returns would be outside that investigation,” said a close adviser to the president.

Jay Sekulow, one of the president’s private lawyers, said in an interview Thursday that the president and his legal team are intent on making sure Mueller stays within the boundaries of his assignment as special counsel. He said they will complain directly to Mueller if necessary.

“The fact is that the president is concerned about conflicts that exist within the special counsel’s office and any changes in the scope of the investigation,” Sekulow said. “The scope is going to have to stay within his mandate. If there’s drifting, we’re going to object.”

Sekulow cited Bloomberg News reports that Mueller is scrutinizing some of Trump’s business dealings, including with a Russian oligarch who purchased a Palm Beach mansion from Trump for $95 million in 2008.

“They’re talking about real estate transactions in Palm Beach several years ago,” Sekulow said. “In our view, this is far outside the scope of a legitimate investigation.”

The president has long called the FBI investigation into his campaign’s possible coordination with the Russians a “witch hunt.” But now, Trump is coming face-to-face with a powerful investigative team that is able to study evidence of any crime it encounters in the probe — including tax fraud, lying to federal agents and interference in the investigation.

“This is Ken Starr times 1,000,” said one lawyer involved in the case, referring to the independent counsel who oversaw an investigation that eventually led to House impeachment proceedings against President Bill Clinton. “Of course, it’s going to go into his finances.”

Following Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James B. Comey — in part because of his displeasure with the FBI’s Russia investigation — Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel in a written order. That order gave Mueller broad authority to investigate links between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, as well as “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation” and any crimes committed in response to the investigation, such as perjury or obstruction of justice.

Mueller’s probe has already expanded to include an examination of whether Trump obstructed justice in his dealings with Comey, as well as the business activities of Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law.

Trump’s team could potentially challenge whether a broad probe of Trump’s finances prior to his candidacy could be considered a matter that arose “directly” from an inquiry into possible collusion with a foreign government.

The president’s legal representatives have also identified what they allege are several conflicts of interest facing Mueller, such as donations to Democrats by some of his prosecutors.

Another potential conflict claim is an allegation that Mueller and Trump National Golf Club in Northern Virginia had a dispute over membership fees when Mueller resigned as a member in 2011, two White House advisers said. A spokesman for Mueller said there was no dispute when Mueller, who was FBI director at the time, left the club.

Trump also took public aim on Wednesday at Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Rosenstein, whose actions led to Mueller’s appointment. In an interview with the New York Times Wednesday, the president said he never would have nominated Sessions if he knew he was going to recuse himself from the case.

Some Republicans in frequent touch with the White House said they viewed the president’s decision to publicly air his disappointment with Sessions as a warning sign that the attorney general’s days were numbered. Several senior aides were described as “stunned” when Sessions announced Thursday morning he would stay on at the Justice Department.

Another Republican in touch with the administration described the public steps as part of a broader effort aimed at “laying the groundwork to fire” Mueller.

“Who attacks their entire Justice Department?” this person said. “It’s insane.”

Law enforcement officials described Sessions as increasingly distant from the White House and the FBI because of the strains of the Russia investigation.

Traditionally, Justice Department leaders have sought to maintain a certain degree of autonomy from the White House as a means of ensuring prosecutorial independence.

But Sessions’s situation is more unusual, law enforcement officials said, because he has angered the president for apparently being too independent while also angering many at the FBI for his role in the president’s firing of Comey.

As a result, there is far less communication among those three key parts of the government than in years past, several officials said.

Currently, the discussions of pardoning authority by Trump’s legal team are purely theoretical, according to two people familiar with the ongoing conversations. But if Trump pardoned himself in the face of the ongoing Mueller investigation, it would set off a legal and political firestorm, first around the question of whether a president can use the constitutional pardon power in that way.

“This is a fiercely debated but unresolved legal question,” said Brian C. Kalt, a constitutional law expert at Michigan State University who has written extensively on the question.

The power to pardon is granted to the president in Article II, Section 2, of the Constitution, which gives the commander in chief the power to “grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.” That means pardon authority extends to federal criminal prosecution but not to state level or impeachment inquiries.

No president has sought to pardon himself, so no courts have reviewed it. Although Kalt says the weight of the law argues against a president pardoning himself, he says the question is open and predicts such an action would move through the courts all the way to the Supreme Court.

“There is no predicting what would happen,” said Kalt, author of the book, “Constitutional Cliffhangers: A Legal Guide for Presidents and Their Enemies.” It includes chapters on the ongoing debate over whether presidents can be prosecuted while in office and on whether a president can issue a pardon to himself.

Other White House advisers have tried to temper Trump, urging him to simply cooperate with the probe and stay silent on his feelings about the investigation.

On Monday, lawyer Ty Cobb, newly brought into the White House to handle responses to the Russian probe, convened a meeting with the president and his team of lawyers, according to two people briefed on the meeting. Cobb, who is not yet on the White House payroll, was described as attempting to instill some discipline in how the White House handles queries about the case. But Trump surprised many of his aides by speaking at length about the probe to the New York Times two days later. Cobb, who officially joins the White House team at the end of the month, declined to comment for this article.

Some note that the Constitution does not explicitly prohibit a president from pardoning himself. On the other side, experts say that by definition a pardon is something you can only give to someone else. There is also a common-law canon that prohibits individuals from serving as a judge in their own case. “For example, we would not allow a judge to preside over his or her own trial,” Kalt said.

A president can pardon an individual at any point, including before the person is charged with a crime, and the scope of a presidential pardon can be very broad. President Gerald Ford pardoned former president Richard M. Nixon preemptively for offenses he “committed or may have committed” while in office.

"While President Trump ran as one of the most socially moderate candidates in American history, he has thus far proven to be one of the most effective socially conservative President’s to ever hold office. He has partnered with the pro-life movement to roll back the availability of abortion and to stop funding for abortions both domestically and internationally. He has appointed one of the most brilliant and seemingly conservative judges to ever sit on the Supreme Court, and that decision has already paid dividends with the cases that Justice Neil Gorsuch has given opinions on. He has argued that the government must do a better job of protecting the religious liberty of all Americans, even majority Christians who have seen their rights and liberties erode over the last decade of Democrat attacks.

And now… President Trump has made a decision that the thousands of men and women in our Armed Services are cheering. He, unlike his predecessor, has chosen to listen to the voices of his military leaders and has understood that the battlefield is far too dangerous a place for our government to be experimenting with social policy. In acting to restrict transgendered people from the military the President has chosen to put the safety and security of our soldiers first, and to take the slings and arrows of the leftists upon himself. This is what a leader does. He puts his people before himself, and with three simple tweets this morning the President has done just that."

"… government-funded, politically correct, medical sex change clinic for people with gender dysphoria,” stated Heyer.

“Gender dysphoria, the common diagnosis for one who feels at odds with his or her birth gender, develops from prolonged anxiety and depression. People are not born that way,” he wrote, adding that it is largely based on strong feelings, while noting that feelings can change over time.

“The military is expected to prepare its members in warfare: to kill, destroy, and break our enemies,” he continued. “The most important factors in preparing a strong military are not hormone therapy, surgical sex changes, or politically correct education.

“We need psychologically fit, emotionally sound, highly trained troops to protect our nation from its enemies,” he added.

Heyer proceeded to note that countless veterans are homeless or suffering sub-par health care at the hands of the Department of Veterans Affairs, and questioned where the money for sex-change operations for military recruits would come from and why it should be a priority above other important things.

On top of the high cost of gender transition — Heyer put the cost at up to $130,000, not even counting the costs of a sex-change reversal that some will inevitably seek — he pointed out that the change from being a man to a woman or vice-versa is only “cosmetic” and can lead to countless other psychological problems, is often regretted by some of those who go through the process and sadly ends in suicide attempts for roughly 40 percent of the transgender population.

“Beyond the financial cost, there’s the question of the service member’s military readiness during their transition or detransition, as the process often comes with a great deal of anxiety and emotional instability,” he noted.

He also noted his own experience living as a woman for eight years before accepting his birth gender. He now runs a website called SexChangeRegret.com,and a blog, WaltHeyer.com.

“As a person who lived the transgender life for eight years, I can attest that assisting, affirming, or paying for hormone therapies and genital mutilation surgeries would not have strengthened our military,” Heyer concluded. “They would only have brought adverse long-term consequences, both for individuals and for our armed forces as a whole.”

So there you have it, straight from the mouth (or keyboard) of a former transgender military veteran who disagrees with the progressive push of transgenderism for all on the taxpayer dime."

http://constitution.com/susan-rice-side ... ambitions/
"The liberal “resistance” to Donald Trump has taken one of its most bizarre turns yet, as ex-Obama security advisor Susan Rice let fly a wildly irresponsible idea.
In the months since President Trump was inaugurated, the left has been working overtime to attempt to discredit the Commander in Chief – a dangerous proposition in and of itself. Much of this so-called “resistance” has focused on personal bits regarding Trump, including the left’s absurd insistence that the President is some sort of supreme bigot and xenophobe.
Lately, however, the “resistance” has become a bit more anarchic and desperate, attacking Trump’s policy initiatives and defying The Donald at every possible political turn. In the latest international row between North Korea and the United States, however, nearly all are in agreement that Trump will need to act before the U.S. catches a nuke screaming across the Pacific.

“Former President Barack Obama’s National Security adviser, Susan Rice, wants President Donald Trump to accept North Korea as a nuclear power.
“’History shows that we can, if we must, tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea — the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of thousands of Soviet nuclear weapons during the Cold War,’ she wrote in a New York Times op-ed, criticizing the president’s ‘fire and fury’ rhetoric in response to the escalating tensions between the two countries.
“Rice complained that Trump’s rhetoric was “unprecedented and especially dangerous” and that America would have to be cautious about its response to Pyongyang.
“She defended Obama’s actions in response to North Korea, insisting that his administration put them ‘on edge’ by conducting joint military exercises with South Korea and introducing more economic sanctions.”
That is precisely what this liberal “resistance” to President Trump boils down to: Opposing him no matter what the circumstances are.
In North Korea we have a maddeningly vile dictator hellbent on wiping the United States off of the map. This despot has just recently, and quite mysteriously, advanced his nuclear missile technology years forward in a matter of months, and Susan Rice believes that we should allow it to continue that way."
No one, and we mean no one, can truly believe that Kim Jong Un should be allowed a nuclear arsenal except Susan Rice, and Susan Rice’s opinion is clearly nothing more than a dangerous and misguided attack on our Commander in Chief."

Shallow analysis, again, from the Trump supporters who are so desperate to remove the bloody smear across the Murderer In Chief's face. He's getting rid of the CIA program because he's got boots on the ground, and not just in Syria. There's talk of going back to Libya now. Warmongers!

That's me, the guy who would just like the killing of brown people to stop. How silly of me.
You seem to be obsessed with this racist meme . . . very much like the Left in general. Why is that?

GW Bush and Clinton got us into wars w/the Slavs in the Balkans. They are hardly 'brown'. Incidentally, many Muslims in the Middle and Near East are as white as any European.

Maybe Silver is okay with Korea attacking us. And maybe he is against Trump defending us by sending a warning.

1999.
"Trump said that if he were president, he would first “negotiate like crazy.”
“Look, Tim — if a man walks up to you and puts a gun to your head and says, ‘give me your money,’ wouldn’t you rather know where he’s coming from before he had the gun in his hand?” Trump asked.
But if negotiations proved to be unsuccessful, Trump said he would take action to “solve the problem now than solve it later.”
“Tim, do you know that this country gave them nuclear reactors, free fuel for 10 years. We virtually tried to bribe them into stopping and they’re continuing to what they’re doing. And they’re laughing at us, they think we’re a bunch of dummies,” Trump said.
“I’m saying that we have to do something to stop.”

The nearly 20-year-old interview resurfaced after The Washington Post reported Tuesday that the Defense Intelligence Agency assessed in July that North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that fits inside its intercontinental ballistic missiles.

“The IC (intelligence community) assesses North Korea has produced nuclear weapons for ballistic missile delivery, to include delivery by ICBM-class missiles,” the assessment read, according to an excerpt provided to The Post.

The U.S. intelligence community also calculated in July that the nuclear arsenal controlled by North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un now contains 60 nuclear weapons.

The United Nations Security Council Saturday voted unanimously Saturday to impose new sanctions on North Korea for conducting two ICBM tests and violating prior resolutions. The sanctions will cut the regime’s annual export revenue of $3 billion by more than a third, according to U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

North Korea called the new sanctions an attempt “to strangle a nation,” and warned that “physical action will be taken mercilessly with the mobilization of all its national strength.”

Trump responded Tuesday, warning North Korea it “will be met with fire and fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before,” if it continues to threaten the United States.

He dialed up the rhetoric further Wednesday, tweeting that the U.S. nuclear arsenal “is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before” since he ordered a series of renovations and modernisations.

If Trump was president in the late 90s, it is possible the U.S. government would have taken a more proactive approach toward the North Korean nuclear threat.

“You want to do it in five years when they have warheads all over the place, every one of them pointing to New York City and Washington?” Trump said in the 1999 interview. “Or do you want to do something now?”

"While liberals may be quite upset with President Trump’s posturing and tough talk on North Korea, the people living within striking distance of North Korea have a very different opinion on the matter.

Guam’s Governor, Eddie Calvo, appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Show on Wednesday night and he had nothing but praise for President Trump.

Calvo explained that the people of Guam want a President who’s willing to stand up for them. They want a President who’s willing to put himself between innocent people and a madman like North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.

“We encourage everyone to go through their lives and live them like you would any other day.

As far as I’m concerned, as an American citizen, I want a president that says that if any nation such as North Korea attack Guam, attack Honolulu, attack the west coast, they will be met with Hell and fury.”

"Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong-un will find another path!" President Trump said on Twitter.

North Korea has announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the US Pacific territory of Guam, a major military hub and home to US bombers."

“Since the start of this administration, President Trump has asked that Maduro respect Venezuela’s constitution, hold free and fair elections, release political prisoners, cease all human rights violations, and stop oppressing Venezuela’s great people,” the White House said.

“The Maduro regime has refused to heed this call, which has been echoed around the region and the world. Instead, Maduro has chosen the path of dictatorship,” the statement said.

“The United States stands with the people of Venezuela in the face of their continued oppression by the Maduro regime. President Trump will gladly speak with the leader of Venezuela as soon as democracy is restored in that country,” the statement said."

“I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio,” Trump stated on Sunday. “He has done a lot in the fight against illegal immigration. He’s a great American patriot and I hate to see what has happened to him.”
Trump also indicated that he will likely make a decision on the Arpaio pardon in the next few days.

The 85-year-old retired officer was found guilty on July 31 of misdemeanor contempt of court from his time in office when he continued to back enforcement efforts against illegal immigrants in Maricopa County, Arizona.
He could face up to six months in jail for that charge, although he has not yet been sentenced.

“Is there anyone in local law enforcement who has done more to crack down on illegal immigration than Sheriff Joe?” Trump said, according to Fox. “He has protected people from crimes and saved lives. He doesn’t deserve to be treated this way.”
Word of the president’s possible pardon quickly reached the tough but aging former cop. “Is there anyone in local law enforcement who has done more to crack down on illegal immigration than Sheriff Joe?” Trump said, according to Fox. “He has protected people from crimes and saved lives. He doesn’t deserve to be treated this way.”

Word of the president’s possible pardon quickly reached the tough but aging former cop.
“I am happy he understands the case,” Arpaio said to Fox News. “I would accept the pardon because I am 100 percent not guilty.”
Sheriff Joe was basically hauled into court for doing his sworn duty: enforcing the laws of his state and the nation.
It seems bizarre that a law enforcement officer is being punished for doing exactly what his job title states.
Arpaio may be controversial, but he believed in protecting the citizens of his state from the chaos of a wild border… and if Trump decides to take action, Sheriff Joe might be getting the last laugh."

"AN AMERICAN university has kicked out a school group for wearing “Make America Great Again” hats after a student complained about “whitey girls tryna be problematic”.
Twitter user Essence Dalton posted a photo of a group of high school girls visiting Howard University on Sunday, one of whom was wearing a distinctive red Donald Trump hat.
“Who told these lil yt girls they could come to THE HU like it was about to be some joke,” she wrote, adding that “they don’t even go here they’re just locals posted up in the annex tryna be problematic”.
Howard University is a historically black, private university in Washington DC. Its student population is about 86 per cent African-American, 3 per cent white and 3 per cent Asian.“However what happened to my friend and I today was absolutely pathetic. My friend Sarah and I are on a trip to Washington DC with two schools, one being our own, Union City, and the other being Central Tech.
“We have been able to sight see and visit many different historical places in DC without being harassed by anyone for supporting Donald Trump. Today we visited Howard University for lunch. Sarah was wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat, I was wearing my new Trump shirt I had just recently purchased, along with my own Trump hat.
“Walking to the cafe, a man said ‘F*** y’all’ to me. While we were waiting in line not knowing that HU is a predominately ‘black’ school, which either way SHOULDN’T MATTER, a man came up and stole Sarah’s hat.

“We had never even engaged with the students. Half of us weren’t even through the doors yet. Fortunately one of our supervisors was able to retrieve it. We were harassed continuously. The students took videos and pictures of us saying WE were being ‘disrespectful’, and that ‘us being caucasian, we should have known better’.
“After a lot of hate, our head supervisors decided it would be a good idea to keep the peace and find somewhere else to eat. When we got on the bus, a girl from Central Tech told us to ‘remove our hats because we are racist’.
“This is America. These are the people who are racist and disrespectful. It’s unfortunate that more Trump supporters have to fear going places than others. I will never be embarrassed for supporting Donald Trump. I will always support OUR president when, and wherever, I please.”

What in the heck is Obama then? He and Michelle started the race card. They are the one's opening the borders to just anyone wanting to come here, a good share of them having had no desire to assimilate into our way of life,( whatever that is these days), many who don't like Whitey or what the Constitution stands for. Racist? These people with their head up their Ying-Yang haven't a clue as to what racism is or they wouldn't speak so freely, using connotations not fitting the meaning. Sometimes "stupid" goes all the way to the bone.
Just who do they expect to come out of Mexico...Australians, Austrians, Swiss, Finns, Dutch...who? Obama started the race issue, plain and for sure and certain. Where do the Muslims come from? Who said they could build Mosques every which place, push for Sharia law, and take over cities and schools to the extent of telling others how to live, or else?
I don't think any of us have issues with those coming to America in the proper fashion and customary way. Try getting into any other country for an extended stay without a visa (passport). Racists? Get real!
