WND Exclusive – Can we still trust President Trump?

The nation is all a atwitter over this apparent Trump-Schumer-Pelosi triumvirate.

I was personally disappointed that Trump even met with the two dirt dealers. Nothing productive could come of it. And herein lies the problem: We don’t know what was said or agreed upon, yet everyone has an opinion – but based on what?

I suppose, we could base opinion on conjecture or “ifs,” as it were. If Trump did this, then we’re happy – if Trump did that, then we’re mad, etc. read more

Nothing More Important than Saving DACA

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

President Trump appears to be as good as his campaign promise – to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program illegally instituted by Obama.

Well, he kind of did and kind of didn’t. Although some on the right are praising him for ending the amnesty program, he did so with a caveat.

It seems nothing can be done cleanly in Washington. There must always be an exception or fine print.

Although the DACA program will not accept new arrivals, and that’s good, Trump did give Congress the opportunity, with a 6 month deadline, to “fix it” by way of legislation.

This of course is the way any immigration policy should be defined – by a law – crafted and passed by Congress, which has sole purview over all matters concerning naturalization, and by extension, immigration.

CNN reports that, “Under existing law, before DACA, these children were just as subject to deportation as their parents, even though they were blameless in the decision to cross the border and most have known no other home besides the United States.” read more

ICE Detains Illegal After Speech

This is the way it’s supposed to work!

from the Clarion-Ledger:

Moments after an immigrant spoke out about her fears of deportation, she was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Daniela Vargas, 22, was detained by ICE agents Wednesday morning, shortly after speaking at a news conference in downtown Jackson, according to her attorney, Abby Peterson.

The news conference was hosted by local immigration attorneys, churches and the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance to bring attention to families impacted by deportation. read more

Podcast – Leftist Mayors Whine About Trump Immigration Policy – and So Does Mark Zuckerberg

Leftist Mayors of America’s Major Cities are upset with president Trump over his order to clamp down on “Sanctuary Cities.” Frankly, the entire left is nuts over it. Ain’t it grand?!

Many Mayors are vowing to fight the feds and some on left are calling th

e possible withholding of federal funds as extortion. Funny, but I don’t ever recall these same lefties mentioning anything about Obama’s many threats to extort States if they didn’t comply with his unlawful wishes.

And Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook has weighed in on Trump’s Immigration Orders – so I guess there’s nothing more to be said – but I’ll say it anyway. Listen to find to out just what nonsense Mr. Facebook spewed. read more

Why is Trump Waiting to Rescind DACA?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

I have written a lot of rather supportive articles lately about president Trump. I decided going in that I would praise him when it was warranted and criticize him when needed.

It’s only been a few days, and so far, he’s done more good than not. Yet I refuse to be one of Trump’s pom-pom boys (H/T Mark Levin) that cheer every word he utters.

This is one of those times when I feel I must, as others have, question the President.

One of the major issues – perhaps the major issue, and the one that put Trump on the map, was and is illegal immigration – specifically, building the wall and deportations.

It was my hope and understanding – and I’m certainly not the only one – that one of the very first issues Trump would address is immigration. Yet in a flurry of very positive Executive Orders, I didn’t see a single one pertaining to Obama’s unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Executive Order. I personally was looking for the President to end the program on day one. read more

Paying For School Is Hard for Some – Not for Others

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I was speaking to the father of one of my son’s best friends the other day. As it turns out the father is also one of my close friends. His older son is graduating high school and will be heading off to college in a few months. He wishes to study aeronautic engineering and schools that specialize in this field are pretty pricey.

He told me that he is too wealthy to be poor and too poor to be wealthy. In other words, he’s just above the threshold for his son to qualify for low income assistance, so student loans are what they are left with. And that’s okay. He doesn’t expect anyone else to pay for his son’s education.

It’s just a shame that his son isn’t an illegal alien. I suggested he and his son fly down to Tijuana Mexico, drop him off, have the kid walk across the border, claim DREAMer status, and he’ll be all set.

If, we’ll call him Julio, picks the right state and the right school, he’s virtually home free. And if he needs help in how to achieve this, he may read a US News article from 2014 entitled “How Immigrants without Legal Status Can Pay for College.”

Notice they are careful to describe them as immigrants without legal status, rather than what they are – illegals. Only once, in this relatively lengthy post is the word illegal mentioned. read more

America and Great Britain Are Government Birds of a Feather

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It doesn’t matter where in the world they reside – liberals and progressives in government think and act alike. They have the same philosophy and use the same tactics, regardless of which side of the pond they are on.

Two of the latest shining examples of sameness are the American and British governments’ treatment of unemployment and immigration.

Our government fudges unemployment numbers all the time by using various ways of classifying the unemployed (e.g., the U3 vs. U6). We know they don’t factor in the long term unemployed and underemployed thereby enabling them to claim that the unemployment rate is well under 6%. We know this to be a lie.

Well, I don’t know who learned from whom, but it turns out Great Britain, our kindred spirits from across the pond do the exact same thing. They too are claiming low employment by using the same tactics as we Yanks. read more

Podcast – Rubio – Homeland – Immigration & New Jersey Jack Boots

Today I discuss Senator Marco Rubio’s wrong stance on illegal immigration, the lie of shutting down Homeland Security and a poor old retiree unfortunate enough to live in New Jersey. He may spend his last days on Earth in a New Jersey State Prison. read more

Illegals Can Carry Guns and Collect Unemployment

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The new United States Congress is actually going to attempt to de-fund at least some of the Homeland Security budget that pertains to president Obama’s illegal executive action on immigration.

I’d like to quickly go off topic for just a moment and ask a question. Is there another name for these “immigrants”? Can someone come up with a more appropriate name for these illegals Obama is legalizing please? Criminal trespassers maybe, or worse, when I report what I’m about to report.

Well, it seems the Congress isn’t the only one trying to stop Obama. There are 24 states also trying to block the president’s illegal immigration decree.amnesty

And why are the States getting involved? Obviously they understand that just like every other mandate imposed on them by the feds, the States will be left holding the financial bag.

And they also, most likely, realize that when the feds announced a target number, as in 4 million illegals in this case, the number is guaranteed to be much greater. The States will be on the hook for their education, healthcare, etc., none of which they can afford.

MailOnline reports that a brief released by Wisconsin says “States will have to pay millions of dollars to remediate the problems created by the directive. It will be difficult or impossible to recover those costs from the federal government.” read more
