On Thursday, The Associated Press published a story with a headline that read, “US Army quietly discharging immigrant recruits.” That headline was quickly met with outrage — but the story itself isn’t anything new.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush called the move “disappointing.”
Film producer Adam Best claimed that the recruits were being discharged because they were immigrants.
Ignorance, Lawlessness, And Open Borders!!
Protection, which operates Border Patrol, to arrest foreign nationals crossing the southern border illegally. Democrats calls to “abolish ICE” for separating families at the border illustrate their ignorance of the very laws they wish to ignore.
But while Democrats are frequently wrong, they’re never in doubt. They may not know what ICE does, but their demand to abolish it highlights their increasing lawlessness. In recent weeks, a major Democrat lawmaker has openly called for mob terror against Republican officials. Left-wing commentators and activists within such movements as Black Lives Matter have suggested abolishing the police—whatever that means. The New York Democratic Socialists of America, of which Democrat congressional nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a member, recently declared, “Abolish ICE. Abolish prisons. Abolish cash bail. Abolish borders.” By taking aim at law enforcement per se, Democrats offer a vision of America governed not by duly enacted law passed by representative institutions but rather a country governed by the caprices and prejudices of men, popular sovereignty be damned.
Finally, beyond the idiocy and the lawlessness, “abolish ICE” means open borders — a radical policy opposed by virtually every voting demographic. According to a YouGov poll from late June, Americans strongly favor tougher immigration enforcement, with just 19% of respondents approving of the Obama administration’s policy of “catch and release” for families crossing the border illegally. Even among Democrats, a full 70% opposed catch-and-release, and nearly half of all Democrats expressed support for detaining entire families throughout deportation hearings.
Republicans Couldn’t Have Crafted a Better DIMocrats Campaign Platform If We Tried.
SHOCKER! – SHOCKER! -SHOCKER! — SHOCKER!
A growing number of Democrats are calling for abolishing the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, but even among voters in their own party, there’s not much support for the idea. Maybe that’s because voters think the government needs to be even more aggressive in deporting illegal immigrants.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 25% of Likely U.S. Voters favor getting rid of ICE whose duties include border control. Fifty-five percent (55%) are opposed. Twenty percent (20%) are undecided.
Sixty-nine percent (69%) of Republicans and 53% of voters not affiliated with either major political party oppose getting rid of ICE. Democrats agree by a narrower 44% to 36% margin.
Thirty-three percent (33%) of all voters believe the U.S. government is too aggressive in deporting those who are in this country illegally. But a plurality (46%) disagrees and says the government isn’t aggressive enough. Just 13% consider the current number of deportations as about right.

Abu Talha al Turki was living with a $320,000 (£240,000) bounty on his head after his role in a horrific execution of two Turkish soldiers.
The terror kingpin had been placed on the Turkish police’s “Blue List” of most wanted fugitives.
Al Turki appeared in a sick video in 2016 burning alive two soldiers as they stood chained to a stake.
The terrorist appeared wearing all black and carrying a machine gun and was the one who ignited the fire using a detonator.
Flames then made their way up the chains which were tied to the two men – doused in fuel – and burned them to death.
Al Turki was killed last month in a firefight with US-backed Syrian Defense Forces (SDF).
He crossed into the Syria in February 2016 and is believed to have been linked to an ISIS cell based in Turkey.
There are many reasons why what is seemingly someone’s last breath is just the first stage of a process that doesn’t always end in death
In Poland, a 91-year-old woman has shocked her family – and the public at large – by waking up in a morgue after being refrigerated having been declared dead. Despite 11 hours of cold storage, Janina Kolkiewicz was discovered to be alive and well after mortuary staff detected movements in her body bag. Speaking as an anatomical pathology technologist (or mortuary technician) I can thankfully say that has never happened to me when I’ve been on duty.
But it does happen.
In January this year a 24-year-old Kenyan man, Paul Mutora, was pronounced dead after swallowing insecticide; 15 hours later he woke up in a morgue, causing staff to “take to their heels, screaming”. In March, Walter Williams, a 78-year-old man, was found alive and literally kicking in a body bag at a funeral home in Mississippi. The discovery came as staff were preparing to embalm his body, so he was just spared the gruesome fate of having an artery sliced open and his blood replaced with formaldehyde to preserve his tissues – a process I’m certain some Hollywood stars will eventually adopt in order to stay youthful.
Williams had been declared dead as he had “no pulse”, but it was just a few hours later that he began kicking in the embalming room, causing staff to immediately call an ambulance.
So how does it happen? In Mutora’s case it was thought that the atropine he was given by medical staff to counteract the insecticide may have made him appear dead (it slows heart rate). With Williams, meanwhile, much has been made of the fact that the coroner who pronounced him dead, Dexter Howard, was an elected official who didn’t have a medical degree, as is the case in many US states. UK coroners may also have a medical or law degree, but the difference is they don’t have the power to pronounce people dead. That is left to medically trained staff – and for good reason.
Even within the medical community there is debate over what really constitutes death, and it is seen less as a single event and more as a process. It involves several different mechanisms ceasing, not just one, which is why there can be ethical arguments around brain stem death – when the person is in fact deceased but their tissues can be artificially kept alive.
When the heart, for whatever reason, stops beating, the tissues it services are deprived of both oxygen and glucose, and are subject to a build-up of toxic waste products. This gradually kills the cells. When enough of them die there is major organ failure and the body as a whole is said to be dead. The delicate cells of the brain are particularly susceptible to a lack of oxygen (anoxia) and they will usually begin to die in around four to six minutes.
President Donald Trump sent 26 percent fewer Mexicans back home this year through November than Barack Obama did in the same period in 2016, despite vows to crack down on illegal immigration, Mexican government data show.
About 152,000 Mexican nationals were repatriated from the U.S. between January and November, according to data from Mexico’s Interior Ministry that were first reported by Milenio newspaper. That compares with just under 205,000 in the first 11 months of 2016.
Trump, who took office Jan. 20, has vowed to expel potentially millions of undocumented immigrants and to build a wall along the Mexican border. He also ended, at least temporarily, Obama-era protections against deportation of people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children. Officials at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement pointed to their statistics when asked for comment.
It’s sure nice for a change watching people becoming U.S. Citizens the “RIGHT” way instead of SNEAKING in across our Southern border and then once here they DEMAND it!!…………Papa Mike
This Fourth of July, nearly 14,000 immigrants become America’s newest citizens, swearing the oath of allegiance at 27 naturalization ceremonies across the nation that coincide with the country’s 242nd birthday and the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
“When oath ceremonies are tied to the Fourth of July, it’s a message that immigrants believe in this country. It’s a beautiful and emotional thing,” Joshua Hoyt, executive director of the National Partnership for New Americans, said. “United nations, from Albania to Yemen, are represented in the ceremonies.”
Hoyt added that NPNA believes “naturalization is good for the immigrants, their communities, and our nation,” while contributing to “higher incomes” and “social cohesion.”
Wednesday’s ceremonies come on the heels of a July 2 report from NPNA claiming an 88% increase in the backlog of U.S. citizenship applicationssince 2015, in addition to an ongoing immigration crisis that’s drawn nationwide protest.
The number of people becoming citizens between June 28 and July 10 marks a slight decrease from last year, when nearly 15,000 people took the oath, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, but a sharp increase from 2016, when about 7,000 did so during the same time period.
Cities honor new citizens on Independence Day
Cities participating in Fourth of July citizenship festivities include Philadelphia, Denver, and Tucson – each with its own tradition to celebrate America’s newest citizens.

You know all of that money that US corporations have stashed overseas? Some of it is starting to come back.
Despite President Trump’s tit-for-tat trade barbs, America’s CEOs are not wasting anytime in taking advantage of his tax reform plan. Over $300 billion was repatriated to the U.S. in the first quarter, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) — the most on record.
Funny how that works. You create a business friendly tax environment and businesses bring money back into the country. Remember this November that Dimocrats want to end this.
“U.S. firms that used to build their factories overseas in order to avoid U.S. taxes, they stopped in their tracks because of the tax bill, they are bringing all the money home,” said Kevin Hassett, chair of the president’s Council of Economic Advisers, during an interview on FOX Business’ Varney & Co. in June.
What president was it that said, “The business of America is business”? It was Calvin Coolidge. Unfortunately, we have a political party that thinks the business of America is socialism and crony capitalism. That’s the Dimocrat Party.
As you can see by the chart nothing happened during the Obumbler years and all of a sudden we elect a pro-business president, lower corporate taxes to the rate of the rest of the world and Boom!
Since Mexico just elected their own version of Hugo Chavez, expect things to get even worse in the failed Third World state on our southern border. It’s time to build the wall! And it would be very easy to fund. Simply impose a tax on all the money Mexicans in this country send back home, 15% at the Western Union window. So then they’ll resort to cash. Frisk any Mexicans crossing the border into Mexico and take 15% of the cash they’re carrying. Many of them will prolly be drug dealers as well.
The new president of Mexico is also demanding that their citizens storm the border. This is a declaration of war on this country. Guess which side the Dimocrats are on? They’re on Mexico’s side. They’re traitors.

FBI agent Peter Strzok, a central target of allegations by President Donald Trump and his allies of investigative bias and misconduct, has been subpoenaed to testify publicly on July 10 before two House committees.
The subpoena issued Tuesday by Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia comes a week after Strzok was interviewed behind closed doors by that committee and members and staff of the Oversight and Government Reform panel.
There was no immediate comment from the lawyer for Strzok, whose anti-Trump text exchanges in 2016 fed Republican allegations of bias in the FBI.
In a letter Friday to the Judiciary Committee staff, the lawyer, Aitan Goelman, complained that Republicans have been “grandstanding” and “twisting” his answers from last week’s closed-door interview.
He wrote that his client wouldn’t appear voluntarily for the July 10 hearing.
Trump has criticized Strzok on Twitter as “the leader of the Rigged Witch Hunt for a long period of time.” Strzok served briefly on the Russia probe led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller but was removed after his text messages were discovered.

Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court shocked liberals so deeply that some haven’t quite accepted that his decision to step down was on the up and up. A New York Times report on the Trump administration’s quest to nudge Kennedy off the bench has spawned a series of conspiracy theories that revolve around one detail in the piece: The justice’s son, Justin Kennedy, worked at Deutsche Bank when it loaned Trump more than $1 billion. Deutsche Bank loaned money to Trump when no other banks would, and it plays a still-mysterious role in Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
What if anything is going on here? ThinkProgress calls the connection between Trump and the Kennedy family a “suspicious business relationship,” while the New Republic labels it “shady.” Richard Painter, George W. Bush’s former chief ethics council—who is now a candidate in Minnesota’s Democratic Senate primary—tweeted that the “circumstances of Anthony Kennedy’s resignation must be investigated by the Senate Judiciary Committee before any replacement is considered,” adding, “The Constitution does not give Trump the power to use underhanded means to induce Supreme Court resignations.”
How might Trump have “induced” the justice’s retirement? The logic here is fuzzy because there’s no clear quid pro quo: Kennedy’s son loaned Trump money, and in return, Trump … did nothing in particular for Kennedy but got the justice to give up his Supreme Court seat? While that doesn’t make much sense, Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, hinted at this theory of the case in a viral tweet. Snopes spells out two other hypotheses: First, that Trump “somehow leveraged his financial connections with Kennedy’s son Justin to convince or coerce the jurist to retire”; second, that Trump ousted the justice so he could “nominate a friendly successor who would vote favorably on any issues involving Justin Kennedy that might come before the court” if the younger Kennedy’s name were to come up in the Mueller probe. The implication of both theories is that the administration somehow extorted Kennedy to quit the court. This is hogwash.
As the New Yorker’s Adam Davidson has noted, there is reason for reporters to look into Justin Kennedy’s relationship with Trump, particularly in light of Deutsche Bank’s Russian money laundering scandal. Kennedy, though, left the bank in 2009, well before it enabled the Russian money laundering scheme—and for that matter, before Trump had a serious political career. The ostensible Russia connection, then, amounts to nothing. That leaves the broader theory that Deutsche Bank’s loans to Trump were somehow illicit. Yet this, too, doesn’t add up. How would the White House leverage that information against Anthony Kennedy? Trump would have to threaten to reveal it to the public—but that would incriminate him, too. Assume, for the sake of argument, that Justin Kennedy did commit a white-collar crime in his dealings with Trump. (To be clear, there is absolutely no evidence this is the case.) How could the president use this knowledge against Anthony Kennedy without placing himself in Mueller’s crosshair as well?
Therein lies the chief problem with every Mueller–Kennedy conspiracy. It is true that, if Justin Kennedy were involved in a Mueller-related crime, and the case reached the Supreme Court, Anthony Kennedy would have to recuse. And perhaps his recusal could tilt the outcome away from the administration. But the baseline question remains: How could Trump “induce” Kennedy’s retirement to prevent all this?

Less than one-third of Democrats are “extremely proud” to be Americans, according to a Gallup poll released on Monday.
Only 32 percent of Democrats rated themselves as “extremely proud” to be Americans, while 74 percent of Republicans rated themselves as such, according to the poll.
This is the lowest number for Democrats and the highest number for Republicans since 2013, according to the poll. The percentage of Democrats extremely proud to be Americans dropped 24 percentage points from 2013, when former President Barack Obama was in office.
Overall, 47 percent of those surveyed were extremely proud to be Americans.

TIJUANA, Mexico (Reuters) – Thousads of Mexicans living in California drove for hours on Sunday to vote south of the border for Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador as president, persuaded by his pledges to stand up to U.S President Donald Trump and end graft and violence at home.
Exit polls Sunday evening showed Lopez Obrador had won by a large margin, and his rivals both conceded shortly after polls closed.
Queuing under the hot sun at Tijuana polling booths, many Mexican voters who had crossed the border from California told Reuters that they trusted Lopez Obrador most to protect the roughly 12 million Mexicans living in the United States.
“This man is the only one who can make Trump end his persecution and racism against Mexicans,” said Luis Evans, 58, who drove from Los Angeles to a voting booth about a mile from the border.
“If there’s not a change in Mexico with Andres Manuel, then God help us.”
Lopez Obrador has pledged to not let Mexico become a “pinata” battered by the United States and rejects Trump’s plan for a border wall. He has also struck a nationalist tone on plans to boost the economy.
Josefina Serrano, 44, who rode eight hours from Sacramento on a bus organized for voters, said she voted for Lopez Obrador because she was tired of corruption and violence in Mexico, as well an anti-Mexican attitude in the United States.
“I came because I want things to change, and to shut up even President Trump,” she said. “Living in the United States, you’re called out for being Mexican – not just by Trump, but by everyone. They think we’re all corrupt.”
