Do Illegals Help or Hurt Our Economy?

WHAT IF THEY LEFT

Considering the Denver Post is a very liberal paper I’m surprised they published this.  This really shows how the hiring of illegal’s is a false economic practice.

Tina Griego is a Free-Lance reporter for the Denver Post.  She writes some really good stuff and she is a strong advocate for LEGAL Immigration homework on issues is part of her make-up and fabric ..

What if they left?

Somebody really did their homework on this one.  Best on the subject to date.  It does not have a political slant to it, it’s just the facts: Not Democratic, not Republican, not liberal and not conservative.

What if 20 Million Illegal Aliens Vacated America?
I, Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News wrote a column titled, “Mexican Visitor’s Lament.”
I interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting Denver last week.  Hernandez said, “Illegal aliens pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes.  What happens to your country’s economy if 20 million people go away?”
Hmmm, I thought, what would happen?
So I did my due diligence, buried my nose as a reporter into the FACTS I found below.

It’s a good question…  it deserves an honest answer.  Over 80% of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped.  But what would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America?  The answers I found may surprise you!

In California, if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico, it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupt hospitals and overrun prisons.  It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested.  Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominant language again.

In Colorado, 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and grandchildren would move back “home,” mostly to Mexico.  That would save Colorado an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 billion) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration costs.

It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone.

Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens.  Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.

Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67% dropout/flunk rate because of thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages.  At least200,000 vehicles would vanish from our gridlocked cities in Colorado.  Denver’s 4% unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.

In Florida, 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to America, the rule of law, and English.

In Chicago, Illinois, 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience.

If 20 million illegal aliens returned ‘home,’ the U.S.  economy would return to the rule of law.  Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living wage.  Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they wouldn’t be working off the books.  That would result in an additional $401 billion in IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local, state and city coffers.

No more push ‘1’ for Spanish or ‘2’ for English.  No more confusion in American schools that now must contend with over 100 languages that degrade the educational system for American kids.  Our overcrowded schools would lose more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in ESL and free breakfasts and lunches.

We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than $1.6 billion annually.  That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who distribute $130 billion in drugs annually would vacate our country.

In cities like L.A., 20,000 members of the ‘ 18th Street Gang’ would vanish from our nation.  No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans!  No more foreign rapists and child molesters!

Losing more than 20 million people would clear up our crowded highways and gridlock.  Cleaner air and less drinking and driving American deaths by illegal aliens!
America ‘s economy is drained.  Taxpayers are harmed.  Employers get rich.  Over $80 billion annually wouldn’t return to the aliens’ home countries by cash transfers.  Illegal migrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America’s economy which currently suffers a $20 trillion debt.  $20 trillion debt!!!

At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us $109 billion per year per cycle.  At least 86 hospitals in California, Georgia and Flo rida would still be operating instead of being bankrupt out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act.
Americans wouldn’t suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis cases rampant in our country – brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders.

Our cities would see 20 million less people driving, polluting and grid locking our cities.  It would also put the ‘progressives’ on the horns of a dilemma; illegal aliens and their families cause 11% of our greenhouse gases.

Over one million of Mexico’s poorest citizens now live inside and along our border from Brownsville, Texas, to San Diego, California, in what the New York Times called, ‘colonias’ or new neighborhoods.  Trouble is, those living areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta w here grinding poverty, filth, diseases, drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse.  They live without sewage, clean water, streets, roads, electricity, or any kind of sanitation.

The New York Times reported them to be America’s new ‘ Third World ‘ inside our own country.  Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 20 million residents of those colonias.  (I’ve seen them personally in Texas and Arizona; it’s sickening beyond anything you can imagine.)

By enforcing our laws, we could repatriate them back to Mexico.  We should invite 20 million aliens to go home, fix their own countries and/or make a better life in Mexico.  We already invite a million people into our country legally annually, more than all other countries combined.  We cannot and must not allow anarchy at our borders, more anarchy within our borders and growing lawlessness at every level in our nation.
It’s time to stand up for our country, our culture, our civilization and our way of life.  Interesting Statistics!

Here are 14 reasons illegal aliens should vacate America, and I hope they are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them:
1.  $14 billion to $22 billion dollars are spent each year on welfare to illegal aliens (that’s Billion with a ‘B’)

3.  $7.5 billion dollars are spent each year on Medicaid for illegal aliens.

4.  $12 billion dollars are spent each year on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they still cannot speak a word of English

5.  $27 billion dollars are spent each year for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.
6.  $3 Million Dollars ‘PER DAY’ is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.  That’s $1.2 Billion a year.

7.  28% percent of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens.

8.  $190 billion dollars are spent each year on illegal aliens for welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.

9.  $200 billion dollars per year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.

10.  The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that’s two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens.  In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US.

11.  During the year 2005, there were 8 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our southern border with as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from other terrorist countries.  Over 10,000 of those were middle-eastern terrorists.  Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin, crack, guns, and marijuana crossed into the U.S  from the southern border.

12.  The National Policy Institute, estimates that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion, or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period.
13.  In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $65 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin, to their families and friends.
14.  The dark side of illegal immigration: Nearly one million sex crimes are committed by illegal immigrants in the United States!

Total cost a whopping $538.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!  $46 billion is 8.5% of $538 billion!!!!!

IN A 140 WORD TWEET, OBAMA = HIS ENTIRE ADMINISTRATION, THE BUCK STOPS WITH OBAMA!

January 20, 2017 The New York Times reported “Wiretapped Data Used in  Inquiry of Trump Aides” and the report indicated there was no evidence found regarding collusion between Trump aides and the Russians!

Today, the paper ignores its earlier report because it would support President Trump’s contention that the Obama administration spied on his campaign!

Did someone say fake news?

“…they don’t even need FISA.” Is real news!

EARLIER TODAY ON the Hannity radio show he had two guests  one is a former CIA agent and the other is the designer of the meta-data system developed for  NSA to spy on every American. The designer said this spying can be done outside the system (without a warrant) and they can go back 10 years on EVERYONE. He said, “TRUMP is RIGHT. …”

“The designer said he ‘couldn’t take it anymore’ and he got out. Hannity is FLABBERGASTED.”
“Obama opened up all our information to 16 other agencies and they are having a field day with it. So – what sort of criminal act is that on Obama’s part? See more on Hannity.”
This statement above is why the hacking leakers like Assange got both Left and Right riled up by revealing WE THE PEOPLE were being spied on! Snowden and Assange broke the law, BUT ARE ALSO HEROES! If you believe in the Constitution you will agree we need to dismantle the entire NSA!
I’m thankful to President Trump for also revealing this crime and not taking advantage of it as both the Bush and Obama administration did against WE THE PEOPLE! Those worried about Trump’s dictator tendency should put their fear aside, open their eyes and see that Trump is for us, otherwise he could have kept his mouth shut, taken control of this system, and set up what the looney left claims to be afraid of about President Trump!!!
FROM THE WASHINGTON POST:

March 6 at 4:59 PM

A former British legislator is at the heart of the Trump administration’s explosive allegation that President Barack Obama was spying on him during the 2016 campaign.

But who exactly is this British legislator, Louise Mensch?

For starters, the politician-turned-journalist is the writer behind an article published on the eve of the election titled: “EXCLUSIVE: FBI ‘Granted FISA Warrant’ Covering Trump Camp’s Ties To Russia.

The article, published on the right-leaning, libertarian website Heat Street, did not create much of a stir at the time. But it has come under the spotlight after Trump, in a tweet over the weekend, accused Obama of wiretapping his offices during the election campaign. Trump compared the alleged bugging to the Watergate scandal, but he has not offered any evidence to back up his claims.

In tweets on Monday, Mensch emphasized that her reporting does not back up Trump’s wiretapping claim, even though the White House cited her article to justify the allegation. She stressed that her reporting refers to a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court warrant and does not mention anything about wiretapping.

My dear Ms. Mensch, what do you think FISA warrants are for besides going through someone’s trash, closets and under their bed.  The main result of a FISA warrant is to listen in on their phone conversations!

(Monica Akhtar/The Washington Post)
Here’s what happened after President Trump fired off a tweet accusing former president Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower before the 2016 election.

Over the weekend, the White House cited reports “from BBC, Heat Street, New York Times, Fox News, among others” to justify the claims. Former Obama administration officials and aides have denied the accusation.

Obama didn’t deny anything except that “He didn’t order the tap!  He did not say the same for anyone else in his executive branch! In a 140 word tweet it is understood the name Obama represents his entire section of the government!  Just as there is no written correspondence telling Lois Lerner to squash all efforts by the right wing groups prior to the 2012 election, she did it!

After combing through these news reports, The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler concluded that the piece by Mensch in Heat Street was “the most important” of the lot.

In her report, published Nov. 7, Mensch said the FBI was granted a FISA court warrant in October “giving counter-intelligence permission to examine the activities of ‘U.S. persons’ in Donald Trump’s campaign with ties to Russia.”

She cited “two separate sources with links to the counter-intelligence community” as evidence for those claims.

Mensch, who is based in New York, said her sources contacted her because of her outspoken backing for the intelligence community. She has, for instance, called Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who leaked classified documents, “a loathsome traitor.”

“They gave me one of the most closely guarded secrets in intelligence,” she said, referring to her sources. Speaking to the Guardian, a left-leaning British newspaper, she added: “People are speculating why someone trusted me with that. Nobody met me in a darkened alley in a fedora, but they saw me as someone who has political experience and is their friend. I am a pro-national security partisan. I don’t have divided loyalties.”

Dear Ms. Mensch, since this article indicates you were not a Donald Trump supporter during this election, and you claim to be a “pro-national security partisan,” it is my duty to tell you Hillary Clinton was not a pro-national security partisan!  Trump is much more so!

Mensch, 45, is a force on social media and describes herself on Twitter as a “Conservative. Feminist. Optimist. Patriot.”

Anyone who follows her on Twitter — and more than 170,000 people do — knows that she is not a Trump supporter and has been probing Trump-Russia links for some time.

Her name also appeared in the hacked emails of John Podesta, the former chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. In an email she sent to the Creative Artists Agency that was forwarded to Podesta, Mensch described herself as a “committed Republican” who was concerned about a Trump presidency and offered a suggestion for a campaign ad for Clinton

In Britain, Mensch is best known for her stint as a Conservative lawmaker and for her work as a successful chick-lit novelist under her maiden name, Louise Bagshawe.

She resigned as a lawmaker in 2012, saying it “proved impossible to balance the needs of my family.” The mother of three moved to New York to live with her husband, Peter Mensch, manager of the bands Metallica and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Although she served as a member of Parliament for only two years, she quickly became a high-profile figure, partly because of her leading role in a parliamentary committee investigating phone hacking at Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World tabloid.

Mensch was one of four Conservative lawmakers on the committee who refused to endorse the panel’s conclusions. The committee’s description of Murdoch as “not a fit person” to run a major international company, Mensch said, was “partisan” and unjustified. She also apologized to the broadcaster Piers Morgan after falsely accusing him of admitting to phone hacking.

Mensch was regularly featured in the news when she was a politician. She was once contacted by an investigative journalist who claimed to have pictures proving that Mensch had taken drugs in a nightclub in the 1990s with the violinist Nigel Kennedy.

Mensch responded in a statement by saying it was “highly probable” and apologized for her dancing.

“Since I was in my twenties, I’m sure it was not the only incident of the kind; we all do idiotic things when young. I am not a very good dancer and must apologize to any and all journalists who were forced to watch me dance that night at Ronnie Scott’s,” she said.

She works as an executive for News Corp., a media company owned by Murdoch. She helped to launch Heat Street last year but left that role in December and is focusing on creating digital media projects for the company

THE WAR AGAINST TRUMP!

President Trump: Fake news is the enemy of the people!
NONE DARE CALL IT CONSPIRACY!
BEFORE  quoting the two articles below, let me express my exasperation with the honorable men around President Trump!!! AG Jeff Sessions before recusing yourself, I hope you removed all of the Obama/Clintonites from the DOJ! The democrats are never honorable!  The democrats only seek power at the expense of the American people!  Those worried about Trump going beyond his duties as president, a silly, unfounded fear because 1) that is not his intention; 2)if it was the honorable people in his cabinet would prevent it–AS WOULD ‘WE THE PEOPLE’ THAT SUPPORT HIM; 3) Trump’s ego won’t allow himself to be a loser, so he will have to fix these problems!
The reason I distrust ALL POLITICIANS, is regardless of their good intentions when they first run, most get corrupted very quickly once inside the Belt-Way! The only hope to save our nation is for ethical, wealthy men  and women that cannot be corrupted take charge and fix the rotten state built by politicians of both parties! This is what our hopes are for the Trump administration. I pray we are right, because if we are wrong some rotten people from both parties will have a ending worse than that of Mussolini!
The Deep State’s War against Trump
                by The Conservative Zone
In recent weeks, an internal conflict within the U.S. government has begun to heat up as forces less than visible to the public have coordinated attempts to derail the administration and policies of President Donald Trump.
While it’s true that Trump has numerous enemies in the media (many of whom were more than delighted to give him free press before he started seriously competing against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election), the media is not the instigator of these attacks that have in recent days cost Trump multiple picks for Cabinet jobs and embarrassment over leaked information.
Within Trump’s administration, there’s a growing unease — some have wrongly used the word chaos — over who or what entity is behind the disingenuous actions that seem determined to stymie Trump’s promises on everything from military commitments to trade policies while forcing the president to make near-daily excuses and unplanned statements to the press. (READ THE ARTICLE BELOW THIS ONE FOR MORE OF THE PICTURE!)
Of course, besides the media, Trump has no shortage of powerful enemies who would like nothing more than to see the new commander-in-chief driven from office. And while some Congressional Democrats have casually mentioned trying to make use of the 25th Amendment of the Constitution to remove Trump from power by having him declared unfit for office, the forces behind many of these machinations may be more sinister than that.
One of the greatest pieces of evidence that something significant is wrong was the spectacular resignation of former Army Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn from the role of National Security Advisor. His tenure in this position lasted just 24 days, and officially, he was forced out of the job due to contacts he had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak prior to President Trump’s inauguration — specifically based on the fact that Flynn’s accounts of his contacts didn’t square with intelligence intercepts of the calls themselves.
There were mentions in the press that a zealous Justice Department could charge Flynn with violation of the Logan Act — relating to his discussing official government business as a then-private citizen — if he wanted to fight to keep his job. But some pundits noted the Logan Act hasn’t been used to prosecute anyone in its 218-year history, and federal courts were likely to strike down any attempted prosecution under it.
Interestingly, however, a former aide to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton tweeted about Flynn’s son’s blabbing about the discredited “Pizzagate” scandal that embarrassed both Clinton and her campaign chairman John Podesta in the end stages of the 2016 presidential race.
Specifically, the aide’s tweet said in part, “Dear Mike Flynn and Mike Flynn, Jr.: What goes around COMETS around” — referencing both Flynn’s departure and the Comet Pizza establishment where supposed Pizzagate-related child abuse occurred in past years. For some insiders in Washington, this is a not-so-subtle declaration of payback that may or may not have to do with presidential election politics.
In the meantime, Trump has selected Army Lt. Gen. Herbert R. McMaster to replace the outgoing Flynn. But Flynn wasn’t the only official related to the defense establishment who’s been prevented from serving; Trump’s pick for Secretary of the Army, Vincent Viola, was also prevented from being confirmed for his job due to alleged business conflicts of interest.
For a few days, it appeared that Trump’s pick for Secretary of the Navy, Philip Bilden, might also suffer the same fate. But it turned out that media stories about Bilden appear to have been “fake news,” more or less spun out of whole cloth based on the spurious reports of “unnamed sources.”
The bigger question, however, is who — or what — is behind these actions and others like them?
As with any detective job, the correct first question to ask might be, “who stands to gain [if Trump is removed or prevented from carrying out his policies]?” Most of the answer to that question can be summed up in one word: globalists. One doesn’t have to look much further than the people most often thought of as globalist “tools” to see a cluster of usual suspects.
Former President Barack Obama would like nothing more than to ensure his legacy policies are preserved and his legislative agenda is maintained. To that end, he’s mobilized an activist army that some have numbered at more than 30,000 volunteers around the country.
Rather than retiring quietly to Hawaii, Illinois or elsewhere as other presidents might have in the past, Obama has dug in his heels and bought a large mansion to house his family in Washington D.C. He has a steady stream of former advisors, political consultants and staff coming and going as he daily works on a virtual “shadow government” designed to throw up roadblocks to Trump at every turn.
Progressive billionaire activist George Soros is known for his exceptionally deep pockets and his especially deep control over many of the political operations he funds through his multi-tentacled Open Society Foundations, among other organizations that he wields tremendous political influence through.
Unlike nearly all other political power players in the United States (and perhaps even the world), Soros is not known for merely making financial donations; he is very much hands-on, and he’s even admitted that many of the actions he takes are immoral.
Soros is known for being responsible for the toppling of at least eight governments around the world (with profit as a motive), so his views about “regime change” within the United States are likely no different than his feelings about accomplishing the same in, say, Macedonia or Ukraine.
It’s worth bearing in mind that in a number of Soros-sponsored “color revolutions” around the world, violence — and even death — were not unknown as coups d’etat and military movements overthrew democratically elected leaders in a number of nations.
Soros has funded not just Democrats in the United States but also Republicans — specifically Republicans who played a direct or indirect role in the #NeverTrump movement of 2016 — politicians such as Governor John Kasich of Ohio, Senator John McCain of Arizona, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida and others.
It should be noted that some of the figures endorsing the #NeverTrump movement include the Bush family, whose scion Jeb famously lost to Trump in the Republican primaries. It shouldn’t be forgotten that former president George H.W. Bush — who made no secret of his enmity for Trump — headed the Central Intelligence Agency in the past, and many political observers say it is the intelligence community (or perhaps rogue elements within it) that’s behind many of the damaging leaks and documents such as the “dirty dossier” on Trump proffered by Senator John McCain to the FBI.
Trump has chastised elements of the intelligence community previously and castigated ex-President Obama’s head of Central Intelligence, James Clapper, who he claimed via a tweet in early January, “called me to denounce the false and fictitious report that was illegally circulated. Made up, phony facts. Too bad!”
Recently on Fox News, former Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio gave an interview in which he said, “There’s a game being played inside the Intelligence community [which Kucinich refers to as the ‘Deep State’] to force American policy in a direction that’s different than what the White House wants.”
American citizens should be rightfully concerned about this partially unelected group of people attempting to drive the course of government away from its elected leader’s agenda and toward a globalist one.
NONE DARE CALL IT CONSPIRACY!
Fortunately, there are some encouraging signs that Trump may be about to get his way in a few policy areas shortly. Reports of a funding halt for the nearly discredited Syrian “rebels” overseas and ATF personnel postings to the crime-torn city of Chicago are just two examples (both of which have been denied as having to do with Trump administration decisions by respective spokespeople).
But it remains to be seen if Trump promises to degrade NATO and contribute less to the security of Europe will come to pass. Certainly, those profiting from the “gravy train” of the military-industrial establishment will be greatly upset if Trump makes good on promises to make the kind of budget cuts he’s talked about with, say, the F-35 jet fighter program.
Recently, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky remarked that the aforementioned Senator McCain was wrong about his views of the U.S. needing to get involved in “constant wars.” Paul claimed that if McCain was president instead of Trump, the country would be well on its way to bankruptcy.
It probably doesn’t need mentioning, but this is the same Senator McCain who’s chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee that’s in charge of authorizing $600 billion per year for the Pentagon and the military. And coincidentally, it’s newly reelected Senator McCain who wants to lead a Congressional effort to probe Trump’s ties with Russia — the same country that the military-industrial complex has major investments in continuing to provoke hostilities with.
NONE DARE CALL IT CONSPIRACY!
Is it possible that McCain donor Soros could use some of his ties in Ukraine and Eastern Europe to dig up dirt on Russia that the Senator could then leak to the press? Perhaps with assistance from two certain ex-presidents (and their wives and political networks) thrown in? With Russia accusers Michael Moore and even musician Moby (who lately has become an intelligence community apologist) to whip up public support?
With this “dream team” of enemies, Trump had better watch his back moving forward. Otherwise, the next musical chair to be pulled out in the Oval Office might be his own.

By Rowan Scarborough – The Washington Times – Sunday, February 26, 2017
Trump administration officials believe that a Department of Homeland Security report that undercut the president’s position on his travel ban was drafted with the express intent of leaking it to the press, a source close to the department says.
The source said the report was drafted by those loyal to the Obama administration inside the department’s office of intelligence and analysis. The drafters relied solely on open source material, which meant it could be delivered to reporters without violating federal laws on mishandling classified information.
“This was not really a leak but sabotage,” the source said. “This report was commentary. This is insurrection. They all took an oath.”
NONE DARE CALL IT CONSPIRACY!
The leak to The Associated Press appears to follow a pattern of suspected Obama loyalists still inside the government releasing draft documents that are immediately refuted by the White House, such as a supposed plan to mobilize the National Guard to arrest illegal criminal immigrants.
In an executive order, President Trump sought a temporary ban on immigration from seven countries deemed a high terrorism risk. A federal appeals court blocked the order.
In the meantime, the White House asked for a comprehensive intelligence report from several agencies on the terrorism threat to the U.S. by people from those countries!
What leaked from Homeland Security was a scant three-page report that said the threat of terrorist arrivals is dispersed among other countries and that citizenship is not a good gauge.
The administration says there is far more information on those seven countries, some of it classified, that needs to be included in a final report.
For example, the report is limited to court cases, which leaves out confidential FBI data on terrorism suspects. The FBI has said it is monitoring scores of U.S. residents for terrorism ties but does not disclose their identities or, if pertinent, their countries of origin.
The source said aides to Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly met to discuss the draft report and it was conveyed that it needed more work.
Among the Homeland Security intelligence representatives was David Grannis, principal deputy undersecretary in the office of intelligence and analysis.
Mr. Grannis was the Democratic staff director of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence under Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California. He joined the Homeland Security Department in January 2016.
Reached by The Washington Times, Mr. Grannis declined to comment. NONE DARE CALL IT CONSPIRACY!
Homeland Security press secretary Gillian Christensen dismissed the draft report as an “incomplete product.”
She said in a statement: “The seven countries were identified by the previous administration as being countries of concern for foreign terrorist travel to the United States. Consequently, these countries were the focus of this administration’s initial efforts to enhance vetting for foreign travel to the United States. It is the policy of the United States to protect its citizens from foreign nationals who intend to commit terrorist attacks in the United States; and to prevent the admission of foreign nationals who intend to exploit United States immigration laws for malevolent purposes.
“The document referenced in this report and others was incomplete and had not been subject to the extensive interagency review process required of finished intelligence products. Further, the report does not include data from other intelligence community sources. It is clear on its face that it is an incomplete product,” she said.
Ms. Christensen rebutted allegations that the report was criticized internally for political purposes: “Allegations by opponents of the president’s policies that senior DHS intelligence officials would politicize intelligence is unfortunate and untrue. The dispute with this product was over sources and quality, not politics.”
Rep. Mac Thornberry, Texas Republican and chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, last week said Obama loyalists inside the Pentagon are not embracing Mr. Trump’s call to boost military readiness and buy more equipment.
Defense Secretary James Mattis has no Senate-confirmed aides in place.
“The problem is it’s Secretary Mattis alone right now,” Mr. Thornberry said. “So you have a number of people, political appointees and others from the Obama administration, and they have been the ones trying to deny there’s a problem.”
(“They’re well-intentioned people, patriotic Americans, but it’s hard for any of us to turn 180 degrees in the other direction.”) LOL
WHY LOL: CAN A DEMOCRAT OR A GLOBALIST BE “well-intentioned, patriotic Americans“?
All but six Obama political appointees have left the Pentagon. But during Mr. Obama’s eight years, many Democrats landed jobs there in the senior executive service or civil service, which are immune from political dismissal.
Political appointees typically submit resignations in December when a different political party is preparing to take over the White House.
The Trump administration is only in its seventh week. It takes months for an administration to win Senate confirmation of assistant secretaries, undersecretaries and deputy secretaries to carry out orders to the bureaucracy.
Mr. Trump has railed against “fake news” in the liberal mainstream media and against leaks, some of which violate laws on protecting secrets.
Democratic Party officials have stated that they have no plans to work with the Trump administration and have taken to calling their stance “resistance.” Some want Mr. Trump impeached immediately.

See First-Time-Published Photos of George Bush During 9/11

George Bush and 9/11 are two very emotional topics for many. Recently discovered photos of President George Bush during the 9/11 crisis are sure to stir up emotions again. It was a time of National tragedy, of strong leadership, and deep sorrow.

According to The Blaze:

A collection of never-before-seen photographs released to PBS this week in response to a Freedom of Information Act request provide a look at President George W. Bush’s response to the September 11 attacks.

The images, released Friday, were the third batch of its kind released in response to an open records request. Last summer, hundreds of images were published by the U.S. National Archives showing the entire administration in the hours after the Twin Towers collapsed.

The photographs show Bush in the Florida classroom immediately after being informed of the attacks, consulting with aides in Air Force One and preparing to address the nation in the Oval Office.

What do you think? Do these photos change your feelings about George Bush? Leave a comment with your thoughts below.

While I’m disappointed “W” isn’t embracing Trump, (neither did a lot of us until after Ben Carson and Ted Cruz were out of the race) and despite his several errors, I still think a lot of good things about him! FOR EXAMPLE,  he inherited the Bill Clinton “Technology Bubble” that was about to burst! Despite that catastrophe he turned the economy around quicker than Obama did after the “Housing Bubble” burst.

Then, in his last year in office, he took the hit for the damage the democrats did after taking control of Congress in January 2007! While he didn’t warn the folks about the “Housing Bubble” he did try to get Congress to fix it, but since it was a democrat Congress they ignored his efforts and actually rebuffed him with Barney Frank and others making speeches that pooh-poohed his entreaties.

Also, when he started to show some of those liberal traits of his father, he quickly backed off when the party base showed their ire! Some examples: Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court;  Dubai ports deal; amnesty for illegal aliens and the like.  I agree Iraq was his most grievous error, but before leaving office, along with General Petraeus, they created a very stable circumstance there.  If Obama listened to him about leaving a residual force, Iraq would never have descended into the current turmoil. He did all the right things in Afghanistan, but again Obama let that get out of hand because like too many democrats, he felt The USA shouldn’t be winning wars!

George W we miss you!  I pray Trump will keep his word and restore our nation to they stable place it was before the democrats took control of Congress in January 2007!

GOOD DEEDS THAT GO UNNOTICED!

 
In 1991, at the end of Desert Storm, a 19 yr old US Army Cavalry Scout Private who had just spent 8 months at war sat out on a street at Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia. He sat there on his duffle bag with his Battalion around him for 4 days waiting for the buses to come and take him to the King Fahad Airport so he could go home. Unfortunately, the politicians of the day never planned for how to bring so many soldiers home after the war ended so there was a shortage of planes. Politicians are great at talking, but terrible at doing. Finally, the buses came, and took the young man to the airport. The planes waiting were from Tower Air. The owner of Tower Air had volunteered his planes and staff to bring soldiers home for the cost of fuel only. Happily, the young veteran got home just in time for Easter weekend in 1991, and spent that time emotionally healing with friends and family surrounding him. That Private was me. The Airline owner Donald J Trump. That is why I will vote Trump. Loyalty for loyalty, respect for respect. Any questions?

YES! I KNOW TRUMP TALKS LIKE MY FRIEND VINNY, THE CONSTRUCTION WORKER!  I worked a fair number of years as a laborer in construction both before and after Vietnam.  My dad took me to work with him  while in high school and before my freshman year at UMass, Amherst.  When I got home from Vietnam I worked another two years in construction. So, forgive me if I understand the coarse language of the billionaire, builder Trump.  I MUST ADMIT MY FIRST CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT HAS  UNFORTUNATELY  DROPPED OUT!

I loved the humble, yet amazing genius of Dr. Ben Carson.  What an amazing problem solver he would have made as the president.

Then, I look at the bombastic Donald Trump. Yet, would you believe The Donald has a history of silent generosity?  Note the story above.  Two others I am aware of may not be confirmed by any source, but they came to my ears from the principals in both situations:

A small construction firm, with 24 employees,  was named as a creditor in one of Trumps bankrupt casinos.  The owner was out of his mind with worry, because he couldn’t pay his workers.  He contacted Trump and explained his dilemma. The answer came the next day when a messenger delivered the amount listed in the bankruptcy out of Trump’s personal account.

The other incident I am aware of is more dramatic, but just as generous, if not more so!  Trump heard about a family that was about to lose their farm.  The head of household committed suicide thinking the insurance would help his family save the farm.  However, the suicide clause gave the insurance company the out they always have for themselves.  The insurance did not cover suicide, so without the head of household, the family was  going to be tossed into the street.  I’m not sure of the amount or details, but Trump bailed this family out and they were able to keep their farm.

So, yes, Trump is a narcissist, like Obama! The difference, Obama wouldn’t even help out his half-brother in Kenya, when he was in need.  Trump has a lifetime of achievement, generosity and job creation for 10’s of thousands of people  We all know Hillary is also a narcissist that only looks out for her own best interests.  In fact, in my opinion,  she is a crook!

If the American people go for the ruinous socialism of Bernie Sanders, kiss America good bye!

We are left with three choices.  The more I learn about Kasich, I have to disregard him.  So, for me we have the Constitutional Cruz, or the builder Trump.  They  better start working together or the crooks in DC will screw them out of the job of cleaning out the scum!
