The Great Negotiator


Justin Smith and many Conservatives looking at President Trump’s willingness to negotiate on allowing illegal aliens to remain in America is viewed as a betrayal of one his campaign promises.

 

In my humble opinion some kind of give and take is necessary to end legislative gridlock. So, if illegals are proven working individuals that pay taxes, I don’t have a problem with amnesty. HOWEVER, if illegal aliens are living on taxpayer social programs, those illegal aliens need to receive the boot.

 

ALSO, if the Dems will not negotiate on effective border control – e.g. A WALL – Then blame the Dems and give all illegal aliens the boot. If illegal aliens cry racism, they should direct their anger toward recalcitrant Dems.

 

Thus, I am not totally on board with Justin, but in some ways, I am willing to be harsher with the blame falling squarely on the Dems.

The Great Negotiator

 

By Justin O. Smith

The negotiations on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), opened under a false sense of urgency by President Trump, the “stable genius” and “great negotiator”, and sixteen senators and seven House members, on Tuesday January 9, 2018 in an ineffectual move to protect 800,000 DACA recipients from potential deportation, once DACA ends on March 5th. These negotiations represent the lowest moment of the Trump presidency, nothing more and nothing less than another amnesty for illegal aliens and the Democrats’ first step towards a full amnesty for nearly forty million illegal aliens (government stats 11 to 12 million), a betrayal of America.

 

If the proposed Dream Act of 2017, the replacement bill of choice, introduced by Senators Dick Durbin (D-ILL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is any indication of the legislative “solution”, America will be forced to give 3.3 million illegal aliens a conditional lawful permanent resident status. Roughly 1.8 million would certainly become naturalized citizens over the next decade, if not sooner, with voting rights.

 

What happened to President Trump’s 2016 campaign promise to deport all illegal aliens?

 

The switch came after his advisors told him that this DACA amnesty is popular with both Democrats and liberal Republicans. He probably also noted left-leaning polls, like in Politico, that show 54 percent of Americans want to give the “Dreamers” a path to citizenship.

 

I stated in October 2015, that “Trump’s values shift like the changing of one’s underwear from day to day, depending on his personal agenda and who had his ear at the moment”. Ann Coulter, a conservative journalist, seemed to concur, as she recently stated, “The president cares only about his press, has no grasp of details of policy, and simply agrees with the last person to speak.”

 

Under no illusions, one might wish to see our leaders vote to deport all illegal aliens, but the reality of the matter suggests some form of amnesty will be passed eventually, unless there is a loud and massive opposition immediately voiced. While House Republicans are forcefully pushing President Trump’s demands on the wall and heightened security, along with the addition of thousands of federal immigration enforcement officers and judges and E-Verify, through the Goodlatte-McCaul bill, the Senate is prepared to give amnesty in exchange for nothing.

 

The Goodlatte-McCaul bill also ends chain migration and the diversity visa lottery, which allowed the last two Islamic terrorists into the country and the attacks on New York City. It allows the Justice Department to withhold grants from sanctuary cities too.

 

It should also be noted, that after the Department of Homeland Security detained a DACA recipient with gang ties, early in 2017, it acknowledged revoking the DACA status of over 1500 recipients, due to criminal conviction or gang affiliation. How many other criminals have evaded the department’s scrutiny?

 

To his credit, President Trump stated: “It has to be a bill where we’re able to secure our border. Drugs are pouring into our country at a record pace. A lot of people coming in that we can’t have.”

 

Congress could accomplish the same things, without granting a blanket amnesty, if they really wanted to do so, couldn’t they? But the liberals of both parties aren’t working for America, are they?

 

Curiously, the Great Negotiator’s negotiating skills are less than impressive, given Republicans hold the House, the Senate and the presidency. It is the Democrats, not the president, who are driving a hard bargain.

 

The Dreamers have no right to be here in the first place, since they or their parents broke U.S. law, and they deserve that right even less, when they display 1794 maps of Mexico and wave the Mexican flag in our streets. They have no say over anything America chooses to grant them; and yet, these Dreamers beseech our Congress for America’s solicitude and benevolent care, while standing on the steps of our state houses and at the Capital in D.C. and demand that any DACA replacement legislation be a “clean” bill.

 

During the meeting, when Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) asked President Trump if he would “be agreeable” to a “clean” bill, it was obvious that he didn’t understand that meant leaving out his demands, like more border security and the wall, because he replied: “Yeah … I would like to do that. Go ahead. I think a lot of people would like to see that, but I think we have to do DACA first.”

 

Representative Kevin McCarthy, a liberal Republican, interceded, fortunately. He clarified for the President that he was, in fact, acquiescing to an amnesty bill absent any border security provisions.

 

Later, flanked by Senator Dick Durbin (D-ILL) and Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD), President Trump said: “We’ll do DACA and we can certainly start comprehensive immigration reform the following afternoon. Okay? We’ll take an hour off and then we’ll start.” Whether the president understood it or not, “comprehensive immigration reform” stands for amnesty.

 

To be clear, Congress has no moral or legal obligation or responsibility to grant amnesty to anyone who violated our immigration laws or knowingly put their children in an awful legal predicament. Let the March 5th deadline pass, let deportations proceed, and let the Dreamers sort it out, case by case, in immigration court, like they should have done over all these years.

 

Complicating negotiations further is a decision by a liberal activist judge in San Francisco on Tuesday evening, January 9th, that temporarily banned the Trump administration from ending DACA. Until Congress takes immigration policy matters out of the Courts’ jurisdiction, invoking that right under Article III of the Constitution, our borders will never be fully secured and illegals will continue to arrive at our borders en masse.

 

This DACA bill and any general amnesty for the total millions of other illegal aliens helps and benefits the illegal alien population and the Democratic Party only. Within a year of being granted residency or a path to citizenship, activist judges will grant full citizenship, and the bulk of these illegals will expand the Democratic voter base, setting aside all of Trump’s “wins” and border security gains; and Democratic Socialists will get to take permanent control of U.S. elections, laws and governments, for decades to come.

 

A recently leaked memo from the Center For American Progress reads, in part: “The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also  a critical component to the Democratic Party’s electoral success … “.

 

An attempt to destroy our borders forever more is still underway as “elite” liberals from both parties, backed by U.S. and global billionaires, seek to force American citizens towards a regional and then global governance. They present America a false solution, in these DACA proposals, on the pretext it serves America’s interests and does not harm our society at large, for their own self-interest, and these members of Congress, who are supposed to represent Americans, not illegal aliens, are eroding and undermining the sanctity of the entire legal system and, by extension, our Republic.

Secure America’s Border


ISIS in MX means ISIS in USA

CSP Provides the Knowledge Tools

 

By John R. Houk

Frank Gaffney has sent an email that has a hook – a petition, and a goal – fund raising. Frank Gaffney is the Founder and President of the Center for Security Policy (CSP) in Washington, D.C. Mr. Gaffney is the host of Secure Freedom Radio, a nationally-syndicated radio program. Secure Freedom Radio is a part of the CSP strategy as a Counterjihad organization dedicated to America’s National Security especially against the threat of Radical Islam toward Americans. The CSP looks at the dissemination of Radical Islam via the fifth column aspects of the Muslim Brotherhood and their deceptive offshoots of Muslim-American organizations that outwardly attempt to promote the image of Moderate Islam and the mesmerization of the concept that Islam is peace on the non-Muslim American people yet have a Caliphate agenda to Islamize America.

 

The petition itself serves an awesome purpose if you can get past CSP fund raising. Although admittedly, CSP is an awesome organization to invest. Largely because most of the CSP educational resources are FREE. One of the points this email makes you aware of is that CSP is donor supported and receives no funding from the government. As if an Obama led U.S. government would ever support any actual Counterjihad strategy to keep America safe from any Caliphate agenda.

 

The petition is a part of CSP’s Secure Freedom Strategy:

 

(Washington, DC): If there were any lingering doubts that the United States and the rest of the Free World are losing a decades-long war with the Global Jihad Movement (GJM), events of the past week should have put them to rest. Murderous attacks in Europe, warnings by MI5 of more – and worse – to come, there and perhaps here and an intercepted plot to attack the U.S. Capitol are the most obvious indicators.

 

Less evident, but no less portentous, is the absence of the President of the United States from the Western effort to push back – compounded by his record of accommodation to, and collaboration with, those seeking to impose “blasphemy” and other restrictions driven by their shariah ideology at the expense of Americans’ constitutional freedoms.

 

Such developments have moved a remarkable, ad hoc group of highly skilled national security professionals to step forward and offer an alternative approach: a strategy for actually countering and defeating totalitarians and their supremacist ideology that has been proven effective in the one environment that matters: the real world.

 

This “Tiger Team” has been sponsored by the Center for Security Policy, an organization whose mode of operation from its founding 26 years ago has been modeled after the best of America’s military – its elite unconventional warfare units. As the “Special Forces in the War of Ideas,” the Center has pulled together, much as the real special operators would do, sixteen of the best in the business, individuals with unique and necessary skill sets for the mission at hand: Adapting the strategy that defeated the last totalitarian ideology that sought our destruction, Soviet communism.

 

At a National Press Club conference at noon on Friday, 16 January 2015, ten members of this Tiger Team will introduce and explain the component parts of READ ENTIRE PDF press release (NATIONAL SECURITY TIGER TEAM PRESENTS THE ‘SECURE FREEDOM STRATEGY’ FOR VICTORY OVER THE GLOBAL JIHAD MOVEMENT; CSP Press Release; 1/15/15)

 

On The Secure Freedom Strategy page at CSP one of the exponents of the strategy – Tommy Waller (a Marine Reserve Major – LinkedIn profile) – has a roughly four-minute video introducing the concept of Civilization Jihad:

Tommy Waller, Director of State Legislative Outreach at the Center for Security Policy, discusses matters of information dominance and civilization jihad at the launch of the Center’s new “Secure Freedom Strategy” to combat jihad.

 

The Secure Freedom email you are about to read is informative. At the very least it gives you a great idea to go to one of the great Internet sites to educate yourself on what many call Radical Islam – I just call it Islam. The petition link allows you to read the petition that will be sent to your Congressman according to your zip code. Then as you sign by clicking “submit,” you will be redirected to the donation page of CSP. If it’s in your budget, throw a little support toward the Center for Security Policy. If it’s not in your budget, feel good about doing the right thing for joining the CSP petition that will reach your Congressman. And of course take advantage of educating yourself at CSP. ( For that matter wouldn’t hold it against you to through a little financial love to your Blog Editor via the SlantRight 2.0 Paypal button or perhaps this Paypal link.)

 

The Petition is to encourage your Congressman to do this:

 

This petition is part of a targeted signature campaign being launched in response to elevated security concerns over the vulnerability of our country due the lax security of our southern border.

ISIS Camp 8 Miles From USA

 

Email sent by Frank J. Gaffney, Jr.

Sent: 4/20/2016 10:05 AM

Response Action Network: Below please find a special message from one of our advertisers:

 

Go here to find a formal petition addressed to your Member of Congress.

Please read it carefully. If you agree with it, I would like to ask you to please SIGN and AUTHORIZE it immediately for transmission to your U.S. Representative in Washington, DC.

 

This petition formally requests that your U.S. Representative make defending the security and safety of the United States a top Congressional priority by supporting measures to fully guard, monitor and protect the 2,000 mile border between Mexico and the United States.

This petition is part of a targeted signature campaign being launched in response to elevated security concerns over the vulnerability of our country due the lax security of our southern border.

I do not want to alarm you. We are aware of no actionable intelligence of an immediate threat of violence in your vicinity or against the United States.

But there are growing concerns regarding the threat posed by documented numbers of drug and sex-traffickers, gang members and suspected jihadists who are taking advantage of the border’s porousness.

It is widely known, for example, that Iran and its proxy, the terrorist organization Hezbollah, have had a presence in Latin America for years.

And most recently, ISIS, the notorious terrorist jihad group, has been discovered operating a camp about 8 miles from the U.S. border near Juarez in Mexico. And another ISIS cell in Puerto Palomas is close to the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming and has easy access to the United States.

And perhaps the gravest warning was sounded by the Home Secretary of Great Britain, a key ally in the war on terror, who stated that “ISIS could become the world’s first truly terrorist state,” and that “we will see the risk . . . that the terrorists will acquire chemical, biological or even nuclear weapons to attack us.”

Some “experts” and Members of Congress dismiss these concerns. But as Pearl Harbor should have taught us, it is the nature of warfare to exploit surprise and vulnerability. And it is widely acknowledged that our insecure southern border offers enemies of this country abundant vulnerabilities and opportunities for surprise attacks.

In the words of the Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, Representative Michael McCaul:

 

“President Obama claims that our borders are more secure than ever before . . . This is simply not true. As of last count, only 44 percent of the border was under operational control.

“Just last year the Border Patrol apprehended almost half a million individuals along our Southern border — representing only the people we know that are being stopped. We have no way of telling how many people we didn’t catch, or what they brought with them.”

 

WHY IS CONGRESS NEGLECTING TO TAKE THE COMMON-SENSE STEPS NEEDED TO PROTECT OUR BORDERS FROM THE LIKELIHOOD OF TERRORIST INTRUSION?

We believe a good part of the answer lies with the policies of Barack Obama.

President Obama’s political agenda of dramatically increasing immigration appeals to many of his partisans. And the prospect of more and more aliens-turned-voters causes even some of his political opponents to shy away from taking key steps to secure our borders lest they alienate potentially influential voting blocs.

Politics, in short, has again taken precedence over Congress’ responsibility to do what is right for our country — which is why we have made the decision to launch this citizens’ campaign and ask for your support by signing this letter to your Member of Congress.

As I will explain below, I must also request financial support of this effort with a contribution of at least $25.

But most importantly, please authorize your formal petition as quickly as possible.

HOW URGENT IS THE THREAT?

Surprise attacks are, by definition, “unlikely.” That is why they are “surprise attacks.” But there are often forewarnings.

For example, the surprise 9/11 attack was preceded by a failed attempt to bomb the World Trade Center years earlier.

And the Wall Street Journal last year ran an account of an attack on a California power station, reporting that the former chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission “is calling it a terrorist act that, if it were widely replicated across the country, could take down the U.S. electric grid and black out much of the country.”

And the intent of ISIS to launch attacks on shopping malls and kill as many Americans as possible is being widely reported.

Even the threat of nuclear or chemical terror attack, while also dismissed as “unlikely” by some, cannot be responsibly ruled out.

 

According to Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, Commander of the U.S. Southern Command, “Terrorist organizations could seek to leverage . . . smuggling routes to move operatives with intent to cause grave harm to our citizens or even quite easily bring weapons of mass destruction into the United States.”

 

The hard truth is, a mass-destruction assault on the U.S power grid, or financial or communications hubs, a population concentration such as a sporting event or shopping mall, or to our seat of government could be catastrophic to our nation.

And who would argue that such attacks are not being discussed, planned and encouraged right now as part of the global Jihad strategy in terror in training camps in places like Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia and countless other places around the world?

In light of this, we believe that leaving the “back door” of our nation unlocked, open and unguarded in the face of these gravely serious threats is utterly unacceptable.

THERE ARE SIMPLE, PRUDENT STEPS THAT CONGRESS CAN TAKE.

For example:

 

Under former Texas Governor Rick Perry, his state’s Department of Public Safety, Border Patrol agents and other federal officials utilized an array of military-grade video cameras to monitor key crossing points along the Texas-Mexico frontier.

 

The cameras’ feed was posted on the Internet, drawing on many thousands of volunteers to help monitor and alert the authorities to aliens sneaking across the border. This army of “online deputies” helped achieve a 92% rate of interception of individuals crossing the Rio Grande and elsewhere illegally. But, incredibly, this practical and proven system — which could be very cost-effectively deployed across the entire U.S.-Mexico frontier — has been discontinued.

 

In short, we have the technology, know-how and resources to secure our borders. That is not the issue.

WHAT IS NEEDED IS THE POLITICAL WILL TO ACT.

And that is why we are launching this campaign to educate and remind Congress of their prime responsibility to protect our country by protecting our borders — and why your signature is so important.

Limited resources mean we must begin by focusing on certain key Members of Congress for this campaign. Our goal during this phase is to gather a minimum of 1,000 signatures from every targeted Congressional District.

YOU ARE ONE OF THE SIGNATURES NEEDED TO HELP MEET THIS GOAL.

Will you help out by signing your formal petition, indicating your authorization of its language and purpose, and, if possible, making a contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more to support this campaign and our other research and education projects?

Secure Freedom receives no funding from the government. We are entirely independent — so we must rely on voluntary contributions like yours to sustain our efforts.

Even just the mailing portion of a campaign such as this costs upwards of $100,000 for printing, postage and processing. And, if we have the resources, we hope to heighten the awareness of this critical issue through a campaign of TV, radio and print ads, op-ed articles, position papers and studies to be distributed to the press and Congress.

But right now, your signature on the petition to your U.S. Representative is the single most important step in moving this campaign forward.

And your contribution of at least $25 will significantly strengthen and heighten the impact of your involvement, enabling us to urge more citizens to contact more Members of Congress.

So please do what you can. Please sign your petition, and make whatever contribution you can to help support this campaign and sustain our ongoing efforts to promote a national security philosophy of Peace Through Strength.

We face very real, very ominous threats from some of the most ruthless and brutal adversaries our nation has ever encountered. They have said — and demonstrated — that they will do anything to harm and destroy us.

Protecting our “back door” to keep these sworn enemies of freedom and America from literally walking in and doing us harm is just common sense.

Please ask your Member of Congress to act responsibly and protect our borders.

Sincerely,

 

Frank J. Gaffney, Jr.
President, Secure Freedom

P.S. Some try to discount these warnings as “alarmist.” But U.S. Representative Lamar Smith, chair of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, recently substantiated our concern over the border’s insecurity, stating flatly: “The border is not more secure than it’s ever been.” And with reports that ISIS has now set up a camp in Mexico, just a few miles away from the border, I feel it is grossly irresponsible for Congress to wait for another devastating surprise attack on our nation before it takes concrete and long-overdue action.

This year Congress will authorize well over half a trillion dollars in defense spending in order to protect our nation from jihadist enemies and others now on the march around the globe — from Iraq and Iran to Afghanistan and Africa to our own hemisphere.

Taking steps to protect us from harm right here at home just makes common sense. And choosing NOT to do so — for fear of “offending” the political interests of pro-immigration voter-blocs — is grossly negligent and irresponsible. We are, after all at war. The global Jihad mission to destroy the West –and in particular America — is fully known. And our lack of defense of our homeland has already cost thousands of American lives.

If you agree, please let your Member of Congress know how you feel ASAP.

Please sign the petition for immediate transmission to your U.S. Representative. And please consider making a contribution of at least $25 to support this critical effort.

Thank you.

The number one priority of every Member of Congress should be to protect the security and safety of our nation and our citizens.

F.J.G.
