Illegals demand Obama issue mass pardons, last-ditch effort to stop Trump deportations
Community leaders have planned a rally in New York on Wednesday to make the request.
“Millions of law abiding undocumented immigrants are fearful of what will happen when the new Administration takes control in January,” the group said in a statement announcing the rally. “However, President Obama has the power of pardons that he can use to protect all DACA enrollees.”
Germany’s spy agency finally admits that the Islamic State is infiltrating refugee groups to get into Europe
I’ve been pointing this out for well over a year, but you know, it was a “racist” and “Islamophobic” thing to say. But now we hear this admission: “IS announced that it would send attackers to the continent through the route which refugees were taking. At the time, politicians denied this…Our leaders thought, if we now admit that there could be terrorists among refugees, then it would serve as fodder for right-wing populists and lead to more anti-migrant feelings. So they played it down, but ultimately that was not the right thing to
LAPD chief: Police won’t help deport immigrants under Trump
Los Angeles police chief Charlie Beck says President-elect Donald Trump’s vows to deport millions after taking office will not affect his department’s longstanding policy of staying out of immigration issues.
Beck told the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/2fc3QSY) on Monday that his officers are “not going to engage in law enforcement activities solely based on somebody’s immigration status.”
Beck says it is not the LAPD’s job to work in conjunction on deportation with Homeland Security, and that’s not going to change.
Who’s Behind The Portland Riots? 60% Of Arrested Anti-Trump Protesters Were From Out Of State, Didn’t Vote
Two months ago, Charlotte police confirmed that 70% of those arrested during the riots were from out-of-state. 18 months before that, as the riots flared in Ferguson, George Soros spurred the protest movement through years of funding and mobilizing groups across the U.S., according to financial records reviewed by The Washington Times. And now, amid more headlines of Soros’ involvement, KGW reports that more than half of the anti-Trump protesters arrested in Portland were from out of state.
Meanwhile, when it came to Hillary Clinton who actually avoided questions from the press for hundreds of days, set up a private server to avoid FOIA, and deleted thousands of emails, they were just hunky dory with the ‘transparency’ of all that.
Trump isn’t even president yet. Guess who ditched the press in 2008 to go to a waterpark with his daughter in December 2008? You got it, Barack Obama. But apparently that wasn’t an ‘affront’ to transparency, but just evidence that he was a ‘private man’.
From the New York Times on 12/26/08:
In the news-free zone that is Barack Obama’s preinauguration Hawaiian vacation, this passes for a bulletin: The president-elect ditched his “press pool” of media minders to take his daughters to a water park on Friday morning.In making his dash — with his Secret Service security detail, to be sure — Mr. Obama drew attention both to the seemingly odd but important rituals of the presidential (and prepresidential) bubble and to just how much this very private public man chafes under its constraints.
Former Marine, Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA): Military Needs Counterrevolution, Reverse Social Engineering Policies…
Military needs a return to basics and revocation of the stringent rules of engagement.
A key congressional supporter of Donald Trump says the president-elect’s defense secretary should move quickly to reverse a number of social engineering policies adopted in the Obama years that “have cut down on the warrior mentality.”Rep. Duncan Hunter, California Republican, told The Washington Times that the armed forces need a counterrevolution. It should reverse at least three policies: women in the infantry, open transgender troops and the near-banishment of the word “man” from Navy and Marine Corps titles.Mr. Hunter, a high-profile member of House Armed Services Committee, was one of the first in Congress to back Mr. Trump. He co-chaired the New York real estate magnate’s congressional leadership committee and promoted Mr. Trump in op-eds and media interviews.The Trump transition team is considering Mr. Hunter for Navy secretary or even secretary of defense, a huge steppingstone for a 39-year-old former Marine Corps major.Here is Mr. Hunter’s Pentagon agenda:• Reverse the December decision by Defense Secretary Ashton Carter to open direct land combat jobs in the infantry and special operations to women.Mr. Hunter said Mr. Trump should follow the recommendation of the Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford.Gen. Dunford was the Marine commandant when he recommended continuing the gender ban for infantry and special operations forces, citing Corps studies that show mixed-sex units are inferior to all-male. Mr. Carter and Navy Secretary Ray Mabus rejected his advice.“Chairman Dunford has been in multiple combat tours,” Mr. Hunter said. “Probably the smartest person in the military, period, and he said leave special ops and infantry out of it. What’s happening now is, again, we’re taking our eyes off the ball and going down on theses side roads.”The Army and Marines are in the early stages of trying to mold women into the infantry. No woman has applied to be a Navy SEAL, and one failed at becoming a Green Beret.“It doesn’t do anything to further our capacity as war fighters,” Mr. Hunter said of adding women in direct land combat roles. “It doesn’t do anything to make us more effective or efficient at getting the job done and killing our enemies and protecting our allies. It’s just a distraction. It’s not like there are thousands of women getting into the infantry now. It will never be that way.”• Nullify the June 30 decision to open the ranks to transgender service members and fund their sex-change procedures.The Pentagon issued a detailed transgender manual that dictates the responsibilities of medical staff and commanders to shepherd troops through the counseling and medical process.“Ridiculous,” Mr. Hunter said. “Overturn it immediately because it doesn’t make any sense. How does that help you fight and win wars? That’s what I think Trump is going to bring to this — some common sense. Period.”
