  • The media is saying trump caved. Is it true or are they lying?

    The media is saying trump caved. And that we are back to catch and release. Is this true or are they lying? Keeping children with parents is fine. BUT NOT if it means illegals aren't being held accountable. if this EO makes it harder to enforce our border laws than I'd rather go back to separating children from parents. the liberals are demographically destroying our country. that can't be allowed to happen.

    If your kids don't know these things, it's time you seriously considered educational alternatives for your child. And please don't say you can't afford it, because you can't afford not to. If you love your children, take them out of public school, find a good private/parochial school, homeschool, or simply keep them at home. They'll learn a lot more watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune than spending seven hours in a government-run holding tank for the children of dysfunctional parents. Below are subject matters that my peers and I learned between the ages of 10-17. These issues and facts were...

    "FACT CHECK: Are Democrats Responsible For DHS Separating Children From Their Parents?" "In an interview with NPR's Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep Tuesday, former President Barack Obama's domestic policy director, Cecilia Muñoz, stated unequivocally that separating children from their parents was not a policy the Obama administration followed. "The Obama administration did not do that, no. We did not separate children from their parents," Muñoz said. "This is a new decision, a policy decision put in place by the attorney general," which Muñoz said "puts us in league with the most brutal regimes in the world's history."https://www.npr.org/2018/05/29/615211215/fact-check-are-democrats-responsible-for-dhs-separating-children-from-their-pare

    II. Recommendations For these reasons, and as more fully described in previous chapters, we recommend the following: 1. The Department and the FBI consider developing practice guidance that would assist investigators and prosecutors in identifying the general risks with and alternatives to permitting a witness to attend a voluntary interview of another witness, in particular when the witness is serving as counsel for the other witness. 2. The Department consider making explicit that, except in situations where the law requires or permits disclosure, an investigating agency cannot publicly announce its recommended charging decision prior to consulting with the Attorney General,...

    These idiots never learn. Switched on FOX News and there was RINO Ryan, et al, calling for a compromise bill to legalize and grant amnesty to 1.8 million dreamers. Hell no!! Send Obama's illegal aliens back! Obama's DACA is unconstitutional. Hold their feet to the fire (again)! No amnesty!! Not under Bush. Not under Obama. And certainly not under Trump! Build the wall, enforce the law, deport them all!! End sanctuary cities, end anchor babies, end chain migration, end DACA!! And don't break up families. Deport them all!!

    U.S. Reps. Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Lee on Tuesday invited the Golden State Warriors to Washington, D.C., days after President Trump said the NBA Finals winner would not be welcomed to the White House. Lee and Pelosi sent a letter to Coach Steve Kerr as the team celebrated its victory with a parade through Oakland. “In celebration of your victory, we would be delighted to welcome you publicly as a team or personally as families to the United States Capitol,” the Bay Area representatives said. “Please consider this as a blanket invitation whenever your individual schedules allow.”

    (CNN)President Donald Trump's reasoning for the United States stopping war games on the Korean Peninsula because of cost is "ridiculous," Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Tuesday night. "It is ridiculous," Graham told CNN's Anderson Cooper. Graham continued by saying he did support stopping the drills, but in order "to give North Korea some breathing space to see if we can get a deal," noting that "the money we spend training with our allies is money well spent." "It's not a burden onto the American taxpayer to have a forward deployed force in South Korea. It brings stability. It's a warning...

    Who knew avocados were so dangerous? On Tuesday’s episode of “The View,” co-host Joy Behar revealed she had to miss work Monday because she’d sliced open her hand cutting an avocado. “Saturday night, on my way to the event at the retreat, I stabbed myself in the hand with a knife,” she explained. “I was trying to desperately eat something, so I was trying to open an avocado. So I stuck the knife into the pit to get it out … and I stabbed myself!” At the hospital, where the 75-year-old stayed overnight and was administered an antibacterial drip to...

    A day after Robert De Niro received a standing ovation at the Tony Awards for dissing President Trump, the actor was cheered again in Canada — when he apologized for the Commander in Chief’s “idiotic behavior.” The “Casino” star’s comments came Monday during a groundbreaking for the high-end Japanese restaurant Nobu in Toronto. “I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president,” De Niro said to applause. “It’s a disgrace, and I apologize to [Canadian Prime Minister] Justin Trudeau, too, and the other people at the G-7. It’s disgusting.” Over the weekend, Trump...

    The vast majority of Americans support President Donald Trump’s historic meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, according to a poll released on Monday that shows 71 percent approve. An even larger majority — 75 percent — see North Korea’s nuclear weapons program as a “major threat,” according to the Pew Research Center poll conducted in October. Pew reported: This share is as high as at any point since 2005. Around seven-in-ten Americans (71%) said the U.S. should take North Korea’s nuclear threats “very seriously.” Majorities also said North Korea is capable of launching a nuclear missile that could reach...

    Watching the events on TV, important ones involving dignitaries posing for cameras and dimwits journalists, gets really annoying. Cameras are clicking away, like machine guns, obscuring important words from presidents, kings, queens. Esteemed photojournalists: today we have mirrorless super cameras and phone cameras that do not click - "shoot" - make stupid annoying clicky noise. They are SILENT, no need to make a racket. Please disable the clicking or get camera that doesn't click when you "fire". Modern cameras are silent when taking photo or video!!! This should be the rule and idiot clickers should be banned for life from...

    My son has pretty much stopped growing about 2 years ago. He gained about 2 inches at a time when he should have gained about 8. He was already short for his age. He just graduated Kindergarten, but looks more like he's just ready for pre-school. He's extremely smart, and has a WAY higher "EQ" than I do. So, he manages to enjoy school and especially aftercare; he has very good friends, is very popular, and has the girls fawning at him straight up to the eighth grade. With such good friends, and an inventive mind, he finds ways to...

    I sent the following to the President via WhiteHouse.Gov/Contact/ --------------------- Dear Mr. President, I support Senator Cornyn and add my voice in asking for a pardon for General David Patraeus. I also ask that you review the sentences of the several soldiers who've been convicted of various offenses during this difficult war in Iraq and Afganistan. I believe some have been harshly and wrongly punished for actions which were necessary or unavoidable. Many have complained that the rules of engagement they were forced to fight under endangered them and their men, and also emboldened the enemy. Is it right to...
