U.S. TO ERDOGAN “YOU WILL SOON EAT YOUR WORDS”

The diminutive saber rattler head of Turkey talks big, but the U.S will soon make him back them up and walk big. What brings us to this conclusion? Two fold, first of all this Muslim Brotherhood anti U.S., Jew hater, Israel basher demands the United States stay out of the Syrian north (Afrin). A demand that will fall on death ears.

Imagine a neutered steer up against a bull; no contest. As we have posted in the past concerning this Napoleon wannabee, we soon will see the bull converted to a steer (a steer is a bull without the cajones) by the KURDS coalition forces. We look forward to it. Threatening the United States on more than one occasion has tested our patience. Now he threatens us large.

Syria war: Turkey denounces US ‘terror army’ plan for border

Key powers involved in Syria’s civil war have criticised US plans to help an allied Kurdish-led militia set up a 30,000-strong “border security force”.

Turkey’s president vowed to “suffocate” efforts to begin training members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and create what he called a “terror army”.

Syria’s government decried the “blatant attack” on its sovereignty, and Russia warned it could lead to partition.

With the help of air strikes from a US-led coalition, the SDF has captured tens of thousands of square kilometres of territory from Islamic State (IS) militants.

In October, the alliance took full control of the northern city of Raqqa, the de facto capital of the “caliphate” declared by the jihadist group in 2014. Since then, SDF fighters have been advancing south-eastwards along the Euphrates river valley.

The coalition said on Monday that its goal was to create a force with about 30,000 personnel “over the next several years”. About half will be Kurdish and Arab SDF fighters and the other half new recruits.

TIME TO CUT BAIT – THROW TURKEY TO THE WOLVES – ERDOGAN OUT OF NATO

We have previously addressed the suicide bomber who rules Turkey; a wild man with an iron fist rule. A trouble maker consistently fanning the flames of all those who hate Islam. A Muslim miscreant, he has now drawn the wrath of Germany and the Netherlands. How? by calling Netherlands policy of stopping Turkish rallies a Nazi tactic. Germany is aghast, Merkel was shocked that the term Nazis was used. In fact the Nazi is Erdogan, he is guilty of stifling free speech, jailed thousands, firing hundreds of thousands of judges, police, military, imams, foreigners, intellectuals, elitists and the usual suspects; he shut down the free press and demand the United States hand over Fetullah Gulen.

Turkey is now run by the same thugs that toppled Egypt’s Morsi. One thing stands out here, Turkey is a member of Nato. Obama never weighted in on the Turkish situation because, like Erdogan, Obama is a secret member of the Brotherhood.

Remember his reaction when the General al-Sisi interrupted Morsi’s reign of suppressing the freedoms of its citizens. Obama went berserk, stopped military aid, halted imports and pulled our Diplomatic core. This did not happen in Turkey and we know why. Obama is one of them.  But now Trump rules – he is not about to bow to Allah. 

NATO and the United States looks the other way when it is to their advantage, Turkey is strategically located enabling NATO and the U.S. coalition to use Turkish airspace; Turkey needs to be fore warned that their place in history will be dictated by their actions against the NATO countries and their diplomatic transgressions. For instance their sending weapons to the Palestinians aboard the MV Mavi MarmaraIsrael intercepted the MV in international waters during its voyage to Gaza. Fighting erupted and 9 members on the MV were killed.

Click here for Israel and the KurdsCould this be the reason why Erdogan hates Israel.

The Kurds and Kurdish-speaking Yezidis are once again caught in the grip of the Sunni-Shia vice · Against this background and often isolated, their special relationship with Israel stands out for the good: military advice, equipment and training are only some of the ways Israel has helped the Kurdish struggle for independence · “They only have trust in Israel,” says Brigadier General (res.) Tzuri Sagi, the man who led the Kurds to their stunning victories against Iraq in the sixties and seventies.

Erdogan has unleashed a tirade on the Kurds who make up a substantial number of citizens living in Turkey – approximately 20,000,000. Turkey is afraid of them breaking away. Kurds in Turkey and Iraq have defended themselves against outside forces, particularly the Iraqi shias and the pro-Assad forces.

In the latest act of incitement Erdogan spews vile from his rabid mouth that Israel is “playing with fire” concerning their actions on the Temple Mount.  However, Erdogan fails to mention the real crime against humanity is the actions regarding the Hagia Sophia. Once the center of Eastern Christendom, Constantinople competed with Rome.

From the date of its construction in 537 until 1453, it served as a Greek Orthodox cathedral and seat of the Patriarch of Constantinople, except between 1204 and 1261, when it was converted to a Roman Catholic cathedral under the Latin Empire. The building was a mosque from 29 May 1453 until 1931. It was then secularized and opened as a museum on 1 February 1935.Hagia Sophia Mars 2013.jpg

In 1453, Constantinople was conquered by the Ottoman Turks under Sultan Mehmed II, who ordered this main church of Orthodox Christianity converted into a mosque. By that point, the church had fallen into a state of disrepair. Nevertheless, the Christian cathedral made a strong impression on the new Ottoman rulers and they decided to convert it into a mosque.[9][10] The bells, altar, iconostasis, and sacrificial vessels and other relics were removed and the mosaics depicting Jesus, his Mother Mary, Christian saints and angels were also removed or plastered over. Islamic features—such as the mihrab, minbar, and four minarets—were added. It remained a mosque until 1931, when it was closed to the public for four years. It was re-opened in 1935 as a museum by the Republic of Turkey. Hagia Sophia is currently (2014) the second-most visited museum in Turkey, attracting almost 3.3 million visitors annually.

Before the world pays attention to this Turkish imbecile they must demand that the Hagia Sophia be restored to its rightful place in history. It is noteworthy to remind those Christians that Turkey once 100% Christian is now outnumbered by Muslims, 80,000,000 to less than 200,000. this is a manifestation of the treatment Christians receive in the Muslim world.

“IT IS MY FAULT” HAWAII FIVE-O THOUGHT IT WAS ALL OVER

In cased you missed it there was a little action yesterday in Hawaii Five-0.  No, Detective Captain Steve McGarret (Jack Lord) was nowhere to be found.  “Book ’em, Danno!” is now echoed from those who want an arrest made.

What was all the hullabaloo about? Well, nothing more than an emergency message by the Hawaiian emergency management agency telling everyone to hunker down because a missile was headed their way. Hawaii Five-O Title Screen.pnghawaii missle alert false alarm

How can something like this occur? Click here to listen for the most idiotic excuse ever. Is this guy for real? Democrats are to blame. Trigger happy Democrat Pushed the wrong button! “It is my fault”, who is this guy? Good thing he wasn’t president

BTW President Trump was teeing up on the golf course when he heard the news. Therefore he could not be to blame. No problem there? However, the populace in Hawaii went into a frenzy; it wasn’t Japan this time sending the message to President Trump but North Korea.  “FALSE ALARM” went out a few hours later, well it seemed like it. No need to get into the trivial matter of time.

It was a mistake by an employee at Hawaii’s Emergency Management Agency (EMA) who “pushed the wrong button” during procedures that occur during the handover of a shift.

Mobile phone users received the message at 08:07 (18:07 GMT): “Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill.”

The alert was corrected by email 18 minutes later but there was no follow-up mobile text for 38 minutes, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports.

The alert system is in place because of the potential proximity of Hawaii to North Korean missiles.

TRUMP HAS THE ACE IN THE “S”HOLE

CLICK UPDATE: 

President Trump on Sunday argued again that Democrats and their demands — not him or fellow Republicans in Congress — have throttled negotiations to provide permanent legal protection for young illegal immigrants and made clear that any such deal also must end the United States’ lottery-immigration program.

“DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don’t really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our Military,” said Trump, in one of several tweets on the issue of immigration reform and on the related Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program.

The president and Congress are attempting to reach a deal on comprehensive immigration reform as part of a federal spending bill that Congress must pass by Friday to avoid a government shutdown.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was at the meeting with Trump and others. She told “Fox News Sunday” that she didn’t “recall him using that exact phrase” about people coming from Haiti and some African nations, but that he did use “strong language” on the lottery issue.

 

WHERE IS THE GRATITUDE? We let these people flee a natural disaster and do they thank us? No, they spit in our face. Trump is right, the TPS program has gone on long enough. They say we work hard, pay taxes, are entrepreneurs. Then go back to your country and employ your skills there, build it up, bring the lessons you learned here to your homeland. Oh, you don’t want to do that because you have the good life here.

Because of the grace of our country you were provided safe haven, now is the time to go back to yours. And breaking up the family, you knew when you came here that this was not a remote possibility but a probability. So when reality hits you cry like a baby in soiled diapers. 

The Democrats are on the verge of getting what they asked for, a rock and hard place. Trump submitted a legitimate offer; they will never get a better one, but they rejected it out of hand. The Democrats think they hold the cards, but in reality they hold a Dead Man’s hand. Trump is the President, the Republicans control Congress.

Trump’s position, WALL, the Democrats say NO WALL.  The real story has not been told by the press, but it needs to come out. Forget the shithole controversy, we don’t get into the minutia, but Trump is right, the Salvadorans, Haitians, Hondurans have to go. The bleeding hearts are crying foul. Let’s look at the real story here; only the facts.

The 200,000 Salvadorans are among the nearly 1 million immigrants whose lives in the United States have been upended and set to a deadline under President Trump. The largest group, nearly 700,000 undocumented immigrants who were protected under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, are set to begin losing their temporary work permits in March at the rate of nearly 1,000 per day.

On Monday, however, DHS officials resisted suggestions that the decision by Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was part of a broader anti-immigrant agenda. They described it in narrower legal terms, as a recognition that conditions in El Salvador have improved enough since the earthquakes to no longer warrant the TPS designation.

Others urged Nielsen to consider the approximately 190,000 U.S.-born children of Salvadoran (CLICK)TPS recipients. Their parents must now decide whether to break up their families, take their children back to El Salvador or stay in the United States and risk deportation.

Americans should be outraged at the TPS program. How does our government go against the will of the people. Why weren’t these people sent back fifteen years ago? Additionally the TPS designees proliferated like rabbits. Their offspring numbers over 200,000, who by the way are now U.S. citizens and potential Democrat voters to boot. This should not have happened.

TPS let us down, the law should have been written to exempt citizenship to those under the TPS program. But that is not all, the 200,000 offspring are now U.S. citizens and they have offspring which are not counted. In total the numbers are in the millions. 

But most nonwhite immigrants get on welfare at rates far exceeding that of European immigrants, but this is precisely what we are not allowed to debate. The whole point of the media hysteria is to avoid any discussion of what kind of society Third World immigration brings.

BUILD THE WALL – SEND THEM HOME

Dick Dubin is a worse than a  mouse. Can you hear him squealing now?

from AMREN:

According to Senator Dick Durbin, President Trump questioned why the United States continues to accept immigrants from “shithole” Africa countries and Haiti. Senator Durbin took it upon himself to leak these comments to the press, which duly reacted with outrage. “Shitholegate” may be the single largest scandal of President Trump’s administration, at least in terms of media reaction.

It is revealing that Senator Durbin felt justified in releasing comments from a private conversation. Such an action, as Senate Republicans have pointed out, show Democrats were never serious about negotiating an immigration compromise.

We don’t even know if President Trump used the exact words Senator Durbin says he did, since no Republicans seem to be backing his account, and the White House has denied it.  What word would you use in describing this  country?

 

HOLLYWOOD MOGULS SWIMMING IN THEIR OWN MUCK – GOD HAS VENTED WRATH ON THEM

First it was wildfires then torrential rains, now its mud. If the fires weren’t enough, actually those homeowners were the lucky ones because insurance covered their losses, but now the mud flow released from the mountains that were viciously charged by the recent torrent of rain pounded Montecito like never before. Boulders flowed down streets like the running of the Pamplona Bulls.  However, this time insurance companies are not coming to the rescue. Homeowners are left to their own to clean up the mucky mud, that is if they have a house that survived the running of the mud.  california mudslide map danger zone risk areas

Of course global warming and global climate change is to blame. But we know that is not the case. The explanation for California’s abnormal weather is the result of too many pot heads smoking up a storm. They, obviously are to blame for the fires which cause the state to go up in flames; as nature is a self preventive mechanism it released water from above to quell any of the remaining embers. And come to think of it, if climate change is for real, the blame can be placed on the smoke released from the ubiquitous Cheech and Chongs who blanket the California landscape from one end to another.

EL SALVADORANS

 

UPDATE FROM THE  PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

Trump administration to protected Salvadoran immigrants in US: It’s time to go home

The Trump administration said Monday that conditions in El Salvador have improved enough since a series of earthquakes hit the country in 2001 that 200,000 people who fled to the U.S. must now go home.

But advocates say revoking temporary protection status for Salvadorans – including an estimated 5,900 living in North Carolina – would be disastrous for those immigrants and their children who were born in the U.S., and would disrupt the U.S. economy by removing business owners, workers, homeowners and consumers who have become deeply invested in the places where they live.

Salvadorans are the largest group of TPS recipients. Announcing the decision on El Salvador, Kirstjen M. Nielsen, secretary of Homeland Security, said, “The decision to terminate TPS for El Salvador was made after a review of the disaster-related conditions upon which the country’s original designation was based and an assessment of whether those originating conditions continue to exist as required by statute. Based on careful consideration of available information, including recommendations received as part of an inter-agency consultation process, the Secretary determined that the original conditions caused by the 2001 earthquakes no longer exist. Thus, under the applicable statute, the current TPS designation must be terminated.”

THE LIBERAL INVECTIVE:

The economic contributions of TPS holders, particularly their entrepreneurial skill, high employment levels and the taxes they pay to our government, are notable. If TPS for El Salvador is not extended, those financial impacts will be directly felt by our communities; (ALL LIES) certain industries, such as home health care and construction, will be directly and negatively affected. While the financial contributions of TPS holders are noteworthy, to me what is even more compelling is the fact that these Salvadoran TPS holders are parents to an estimated 192,000 U.S.-citizen children.

What is happening in America is the outright mass denigration condoned by the liberal excrement to bring our country down. 192,000 children are U.S. citizens by birth. This is an outrage. How does something like this happen?

Why the Supreme Court has to rule on and clear up the 14th Amendment. It was not meant to allow this from happening. We are outraged? And we hope you are too. America is home to 20 to 30 million anchor babies because of the criminals who broke into our country, crossing  the border and procreating.

“Birthright Citizenship”: Revisionism v Rule of Law

Started by Jim Delaney

We’ve all heard the stats: currently, only the United States grants birthright citizenship to illegal aliens and 8% of babies born in the US are so-called “anchor babies” born of illegal aliens. In and of itself, this doesn’t constitute a crisis, but, for many of us, it does illustrate how far we’ve strayed from the Constitution.

Like all babies, “anchor babies” too are sweet and cuddly, and deserving of mother’s love and society’s protection. But automatically conferring citizenship on babies of illegal aliens is an ideologically-motivated perversion not only of internationally accepted legal norms, but, much more importantly, of both the Constitution and the 14th Amendment as well.

By nimbly mischaracterizing the motives of birthright citizenship opponents, many in the media and blogosphere—to include attorneys who should know better– have irresponsibly misrepresented the framers’ intent and have reduced the level of discourse on this legitimate constitutional issue to that of ad hominem, race-baiting, specious legal citations, contrived legal justifications, and mindless pandering. Shamelessly seeking ideological and political supremacy, to these people the Constitution and the rule of law mean absolutely nothing. And for a nation which once prided itself as being a “nation of laws”, that is inexcusable.

During an interview with Mr. Trump last night, what annoyed me greatly was Bill O’Reilly’s characteristically bombastic–and wholly erroneous–claim that “the 14th Amendment says that any person born on US soil is a US Citizen. Period”.  Poppycock! He couldn’t have read the amendment at all to reach this specious conclusion. And the fact that even Judge Napolitano, a Libertarian jurist, a few days earlier asserted this revisionist and ignorant view is nothing short of bewildering and scary.  But, this does underscore just how flawed and fallible jurists and seemingly bright, well-informed talking heads can really be.

That said, for my own edification I decided to take the time to again review the actual words of the 14th’s framers, pertinent case law and the opinions of jurists and legal scholars on both sides of the question to determine the truth in this matter.

Here are my findings and conclusions:

First, while researching pertinent materials, I soon discovered that understanding the clear intent and meaning of the 14th Amendment was much simpler than anticipated. In fact, the meaning of the 14th was surprisingly straightforward. Lesson learned: if one simply abandons one’s ideological blinders for a moment and commit to an honest effort to objectively review a constitutional issue, clarity is nearly always one’s reward.

It also became apparent that from a strictly Constitutional standpoint, and despite assertions to the contrary from both the left and right, a constitutional amendment is NOT needed to deny US Citizenship to an “anchor baby”. In short, I was unable to find any convincing constitutional evidence that so-called anchor babies can legitimately and automatically acquire U.S citizenship. Thus, a simple act of Congress–and most certainly NOT an amendment to the Constitution—to restate the original intent and meaning of the 14th Amendment is all that is really needed.

Toward that end, introduced on April 2nd, 2009, and co-sponsored by 93 congressmen, inclusive of one lonely Democratic supporter, Mississippi’s Gene Taylor, HR 1868 (Birthright Citizenship Act of 2009) amends section 301 of the Immigration & Nationality Act to provide that a person born in the US is “subject to the jurisdiction” of the US for citizenship purposes if the person is born in the US of parents, one of whom is: 1) a US citizen or national; 2) a lawful permanent resident alien who resides in the US; or 3) an alien performing military service in the US Armed Forces.” And if one simply reviews the original meaning of the 14th Amendment one can easily see that there is absolutely nothing at all revolutionary about this bill’s language. In any event, the bill failed.

Intended to protect the rights of emancipated Negroes, the 14th Amendment specifically provided that “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and the State wherein they reside.”

And as I very quickly learned, of central importance in this statement is the phrase “subject to the jurisdiction thereof”, something birthright citizenship proponents have consistently and very conveniently ignored.

To begin, Sen. Jacob Howard of Michigan, co-author of the 14th Amendment, expressly asserted that “this will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers.” And it is in this plain-spoken construction birthright proponents somehow discover ambiguity or a totally different meaning. Amazing!
.
Under Section 1992 of the US Revised Statutes, the same Congress which adopted the 14th Amendment confirmed that “all persons born in the United States who are not aliens, excluding Indians not taxed, are declared to be citizens of the United States.”

In 1873, the US Atty Gen ruled the word “jurisdiction” under the Fourteenth Amendment to mean the absolute and complete jurisdiction. Aliens, among whom are persons born here and naturalized abroad, dwelling or being in this country, are subject to the jurisdiction of the US but only to a limited extent. Political and military rights do not pertain to them.”

Sen. Trumbell noted during the drafting of the 14th Amendment that it was the amendment’s goal to “make citizens of everybody born in the US who owe allegiance to the US,” and if “the negro or white man belonged to a foreign government he would not be a citizen.”

On March 1, 1866, Rep. James Wilson of Iowa, House Judiciary Committee, added that “we must depend on the general law relating to subjects and citizens recognized by all nations for a definition, and that must lead us to conclude that every person born in the US is a natural-born citizen of such States, except that of children born on our soil (jus soli) to temporary sojourners or representatives of foreign governments.” This statement served to nicely clarify Sen. Howard’s construction above.

John Bingham, framer of the 14th Amendment’s first section, stated that Sec. 1992 of the Revised Statutes meant “every human being born within the jurisdiction of the US of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of the Constitution itself, a natural born citizen.”

And if we reach way back to our founders in search of a definition of citizens of a foreign power, Thomas Jefferson said “Aliens are the subjects of a foreign power.”

To a man, among the framers the premise behind “within the jurisdiction thereof” was that all children born to parents who owed no foreign allegiance were to be citizens of the US; thus, not only must a child be born on US soil (jus soli) but born of parents whose complete allegiance was to the US.

Subsequently, Sen. Howard further explained that “only thru expatriation, which could be accomplished thru law alone, and not thru any immigrant acting on his own outside the law—and certainly not by any act of birth alone—could an alien become a citizen.” This, of course, would mean that the alien/sojourner would need to affirmatively renounce his allegiance to his/her country of origin before s/he could be considered completely within the jurisdiction of the US.

Sen. Howard also stated the following: “…the word ‘jurisdiction’, as here employed, ought to be construed so as to imply a full and complete jurisdiction on the part of the US, coextensive in all respects with the constitutional power of the US, whether exercised by Congress, the executive, or the judiciary; that is to say, the same jurisdiction in extent and quality as applies to every citizen of the US now.” In effect, he was saying that an alien may, by treaty arrangements with his country of origin, avail himself of the protection of the US, much as sojourning US citizens in the alien’s country of origin would avail themselves of that country’s protection, but that an alien’s physical presence alone in the US would not render him/her under the “complete jurisdiction” of the US. Simple enough.

The rationale behind not granting automatic citizenship can be illustrated by the fact that American Indians could not be subject to the jurisdiction of the US because the US dealt with them through treaties. By logical extension, aliens sojourning in the US are extended privileges and protections by virtue of treaties in force with their countries of origin, much as American citizens are granted similar rights and privileges—but not citizenship–when sojourning in those countries. Logically, therefore, only if an alien voluntarily and affirmatively renounces his citizenship and expresses an intent to swear allegiance to the US may the alien, through operation of law (a formal naturalization process) be granted US citizenship. Thus, in a nutshell, since neither children of tourists/sojourners nor of diplomats born in the US can be US citizens, children of illegal entrants cannot be lawfully granted the privilege of US citizenship.

In 1867, George Yeaman, American Minister to Denmark, in his highly respected treatise on allegiance and citizenship and for whom the framers had great respect, asserted that “the idea of a double allegiance and citizenship united in the same person, and having reference to two separate, independent, and sovereign nations or governments, is simply an impossibility.” Thus, dual citizenship was also a no-no. (Take note, BHO.)

P. A. Madison, a modern day master of constitutional analysis, points out that “since illegal aliens are unlawfully in the US, their native country has a proper and primary claim of allegiance on the child. Thus, the completeness of their allegiance to the US is impaired, which therefore precludes automatic citizenship.” Slam dunk obvious, I’d say.

Also, Rep. Aaron Sargent, a representative from California during the Naturalization Act of 1870 debates, said the 14th Amendment’s citizenship clause was not a de-facto right for aliens to obtain citizenship. Significantly, none of his contemporaries disputed that assertion.

Adding to this mix, here is a little case law since the 14th’s ratification.

In the Slaughterhouse Cases(1873), the Supreme Court observed that the 14th Amendment overturned the Dred Scott decision by making all persons born within the United States and subject to its jurisdiction, citizens of the US; the ruling went on to point out “that [the 14th Amendment’s] main purpose was to establish the citizenship of the Negro” and that “the phrase ‘subject to its jurisdiction’ was intended to exclude from its operation children of ministers, consuls, AND citizens or subjects of foreign states born within the United States”, thus reinforcing Sen. Howard’s construction above. So, since they cannot be subject to US jurisdiction, children of citizens of foreign sovereignities and children of foreign ministers/consuls/ambassadors cannot be lawfully considered US Citizens. Makes perfect sense.

Then, in Elk v Wilkins (1884), the Supreme Court ruled that the 14th Amendment did not even confer citizenship on Indians—because they were subject to tribal jurisdiction, not U.S. jurisdiction. In effect, the court essentially stated that the status of the parents determines the citizenship of the childand not merely the fortuitous birth of that child on American soil. (Note: not until the Citizens Act of 1924 was U S citizenship granted to American Indians. As with many whimsical court rulings over the years, I was unable to understand the legal grounding for this reversal. Thus, it would seem that judicial arbitrariness is not an affliction peculiar to modern day American courts alone.)

In US v Wong Kim Ark (1898), the courts held that children born in the US of parents of foreign descent who, at the time of the child’s birth are subjects of a foreign power but who have a permanent domicile and residence in the US and are carrying on business in the US, and are not employed in any diplomatic or official capacity under a foreign power, and are not members of foreign forces in hostile occupation of US territory, become a citizen of the US at the time of birth. As expressed in the minority opinion, this decision violated the 14th Amendment. But, in any case, how many new illegal aliens have permanent domiciles in the US and how many of them are carrying on business in the US at the moment of their child’s birth on US soil? I suspect precious few. 

In Steel v Citizens for a Better Environment (1998), the court stated that “jurisdiction is a word of many, too many, meanings.” However, and as can be clearly seen above, Sen. Trumbell and, yes, Sen. Howard, 14th Amendment co-authors, had long ago provided a definition by declaring that “the provision is, that all persons born in the United States, and ‘subject to the jurisdiction thereof’’, are citizens. That means ‘subject to the complete jurisdiction thereof. What do we mean by ‘complete jurisdiction thereof’? Not owing allegiance to anybody else. That is what it means.” And this from the framers’ themselves! (Clearly, majority jurists in the Steel v Citizens court didn’t bother to research the framers’ clear intent and meaning. And one must wonder if a neophyte, such as I, can easily deduce original meaning, why can’t trained jurists? Could it be incompetence or do political agendas get in the way of constitutional law?)

Despite the clear meaning and intent of the 14th’s framers, we fast forward to the somewhat enigmatic ruling in US ex rel. Hintopoulis v Shaughnessy (1982), which some bloggers have used to justify birthright citizenship. In that case, and out of whole cloth, somewhere in the ruling it asserted, almost unconsciously/unwittingly, that although a child born in the US to two illegal aliens was a US Citizen (????) that, nonetheless, “suspending the alien parents’ deportation based upon “the accident of birth in the US of their son would be to deprive others, who are patiently awaiting visas…” Thus, since the glancing allusion to the legality of birthright citizenship, though gratuitous—and erroneous—was woven into this suspension of deportation decision, birthright proponents often blithely and excitedly cite this case to substantiate the legality of birthright citizenship. Grabbing at straws, I’d say.

Then, true to activist form, in Plyler v Doe (1982) the court, apparently without access to the 14th framers’ erudition and written words, mysteriously ruled 5-4 that there is “no plausible distinction” with respect to “jurisdiction” between resident aliens who entered the country lawfully and those resident aliens who entered unlawfully. Wowee! Clearly a yawning divergence from the framers’ clear meaning and intent. Seems judicial activism was as alive and well in 1982 as it is today.

To me, these two rulings which capriciously and arrogantly turned Thomas Jefferson and the framers of the 14th on their heads are clearly unlawful at worst, convenient contrivances at best.

When I explained all this on-line to an attorney who is also a strong proponent of birthright citizenship, this was her reply: “I disagree with your interpretation of the phrase ‘subject to the jurisdiction thereof’. The first rule of statutory construction is that we don’t look to the drafters’ intent if the words are plain and unambiguous…If the drafters meant to include some allegiance test, they would have. They didn’t.” That sort of revisionism, gobbledeg***, willful ignorance and dishonesty is, folks, what this country is up against. My rejoinder was civil, but to the point: “It wasn’t MY lowly interpretation. It was the framers’ interpretation. But, ignore original intent and meaning? A living constitution is like having no constitution at all. We can merely make it up as we go along and continue to hand-off an increasingly irrelevant document to the next generation. While I sincerely hope this isn’t what you have in mind, at this juncture I can see there’s really nothing more to discuss with you on this or any other constitutional issues. How very sad.”

Finally, based upon what I now understand, we must be faithful to the 14th Amendment framers’ clear intent and meaning—surely a tall order with so many activists and social engineers infesting our courts these days. In the case of “birthright citizenship”, Congress is constitutionally empowered to re-assert the original meaning of the the 14th Amendment, and that’s precisely what it should do.

DEMOCRAT STORMS OUT OF LEGISLATURE AFTER SUFFERING A DEVASTATING LOSS

 January 4
(Update: Republican Yancey picked in random lottery; declared winner of pivotal Va. House race Click here for the drawing to determine the winner. CLICK HERE TO END AND WATCH DEMOCRAT SORE LOSER STORM OUT OF ROOM. HA HAControl of Virginia’s legislature hung in limbo Wednesday after a three-judge panel declined to certify the recount of a key House race, saying that a questionable ballot should be counted in favor of the Republican and tying a race that Democrats thought they had won by a single vote.

Officials presiding over the five-hour recount on Tuesday had discarded that ballot en route to a historic reversal of the original election outcome. Yancey had emerged from Election Day with a 10-vote lead in the 94th District, but the recount uncovered enough additional ballots for Simonds to give her a one-vote victory.

That seemed to set up the House for a rare 50-50 split between Republicans and Democrats, ending 17 years of GOP dominance and making headlines nationwide.

This is the ballot that was scrutinized in the race for the Virginia House of Delegates 94th District in Newport News, Va. (City of Newport News, Virginia)

But Republicans challenged that decision in court Wednesday, saying the voter had selected every other Republican on the ballot and intended to vote for Yancey.

The judges — all of whom were elected by a Republican-
controlled legislature — agreed, leaving the race tied at 11,608 votes each for Yancey and Simonds. The balance of power in the House stands at 50-49 in favor of Republicans until the Newport News race can be resolved.

State law says the winner of a tied House race will be determined by lot — leaving the fate of the chamber to what is essentially a coin toss.

ALMOST ON THE VERGE OF ABSOLUTE POWER

Power corrupts, but absolute power corrupts absolutely. Think Putin, think what would have been if Hillary mounted the thrown. With President Trump now in charge our corrupt government has been exposed. Inside the beltway where career criminals and Democrat apparatchiks plied their trade we were one step away from totalitarianism.

How do we know this? One look at the faces of the feeble minded progressive liberal malcontent will give you a clue. Washington got hit by an asteroid named Trump. The status quo flying liberal, those who collect a paycheck for doing nothing, the career employee who hates with a passion anything that will rearrange their life style is now in destruct mode. They have been out at Justice and State.

Any day now we can accept the hammer to come down on the guilty. The inside the beltway attorneys are licking their jobs as the likes of Clinton and company will be lawerying up. Bring in clown for dozens will be marching to a different tune. For instance, will Huma Abedin turn on her mentor? Where are the transcripts from Tarmacgate? Loretta Lynch, a liar first rate, will be deposed. And James Comey, expect him to be fitted for a new suit. And don’t be Surprised is Susan Rice starts to peel her lip.

For the most part there will be a massive investigation in all areas of government. Those who are trusted to act independently of political persuasion are in cover-up mode. But we know there are those who will ultimately turn on their fellow associates. We call them moles, rats, mice; the ones who squeal when push comes to shove. Some are honest brokers no doubt, they are straight and narrow, do their job without question.

A quote form Ayn Rand, “Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man’s rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.” Precisely, this was the quest of the Democrats, to disarm the nation and turn it into their own gulag archipelago. Also, “We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.” 

The two quotes noted above are most applicable to Deep State. If Hillary Clinton was elected you could bet your bottom dollar that Tonton Macoutes would be unleashed across America.  For this is the very reason the Democrat elite, media organizations and Big Government employees have gone berserk. 

 

FAKE FIRE AND FURY by MICHAEL OBERNDORF

Fake Fire and Fury

The leftist propaganda machine has hit an absolute new low with Fire and Fury, the supposed “exposé” of the Trump White House. It appears to be nothing but malicious, libelous lies, totally made up, that try to undermine our legally and duly elected President, and to portray Donald Trump as something that no human being could possibly be. The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines libel as, “…(1) : a statement or representation published without just cause and tending to expose another to public contempt (2) : defamation of a person by written or representational means (3) : the publication of blasphemous, treasonable, seditious, or obscene writings or pictures…” a definition that indeed seems to fit Fire and Fury like a glove. For a more detailed legal definition, see http://dictionary.law.com/Default.aspx?selected=1153.

Who, one wonders, do they expect to believe these outrageous lies? The answer should be obvious: the not too bright, the gullible, the intellectually lazy, the mentally ill, the perpetually angry victim class, in other words, Democrats. As long as it’s an attack on Trump, who for Democrats epitomizes the conservative Right, it’s become a given that they’ll believe just about anything that the “mainstream” media – and this includes books – feeds them. And how, one might also wonder, has this come about?

The left has spent the past 100 years scheming and working hard to bring about the destruction of America as a free, capitalist, constitutional republic, hoping to replace it with a totalitarian, collectivist police state along the lines of Mao’s China and communist East Germany. By being content with incremental progress, they have been far too successful. They’ve taken command of nearly all of our educational systems and institutions, and have turned out several generations of brainwashed, dumbed-down, emotionally stunted and damaged useful idiots who depend on government to tell them what, when, how, and with whom to do just about everything. These are the groups mentioned above: the not too bright, the gullible, the intellectually lazy, the mentally ill, the perpetually angry victim class.

What we need to understand is that these unfortunates comprise a large portion of our population. Consider, if you will, the concept of “average intelligence”. We all know people of average intelligence, and they get along just fine. They can do their jobs, handle their finances, have good family lives. They just are not particularly creative and rarely think outside the box. But do you ever think about that word, “average”? Average means, “in the middle”. In this case it means that fully half the population is below average, or put another way, flat out stupid. This, folks, is the main source of the Democrat base.

The shameless exploitation of these easily manipulated and molded folks, people unequipped intellectually and emotionally to defend themselves, has indeed made them victims of cruel abuse, but from the very people and institutions who claim to represent and protect them. They have been bent and twisted by the left until they can no longer distinguish reality from the fiction manufactured and foisted on them by their cynical, often vicious, Machiavellian masters. It’s even doubtful that most of the elected Democrat politicians are aware of what has been, and is being done, because most of them come from that other side of average.

It’s telling, though, that the left has become so arrogantly confident – or panic-strickenly desperate – that they put out a book as blatantly subversive and libelously false as Fire and Fury. In either case, the hard-core, big money fascists who control today’s left have plainly lost sight of reality. They clearly have come to believe that our entire population is like their Marx-bot, below average base. They forget that the majority of those who elected President Trump are above average, clear-thinking individuals, who can, and do, use critical thinking and logic on a regular basis, and are not all that easy to fool.

The piece of vitriolic, subversive trash, Fire and Fury, is in reality nothing but, to quote Wm. Shakespeare, “…a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” Instead of wasting money buying it, or even talking about the lies in it, write or email (https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/) a letter to the President. Tell him what you think of the job he’s done in the short time he’s been President. Tell him what you hope he’ll do next. His snail mail address is:

President Donald Trump

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW

Washington, DC  20500

 

He’ll appreciate it.

THEY GOT YOUR BACK HILLARY – IN CHAINS

 

DOJ is hot on her trail. Pay to play, the Clinton Foundation scam machine calls for a RICO investigation. Under Secretary of State the foundation was sourcing millions around the world; from Saudi princes to oligarchs and political apparatchiks. Favors, access and contracts flowed like the juice that was supposed come from Solyndra. Of course they want you to forget about the three quarter billion burn suffered by the Obama administration in that demonic catastrophe that is still haunting them today.

Federal authorities are actively investigating allegations of corruption related to the Clinton Foundation, the charity of Bill and Hillary Clinton, according to a US official briefed on the matter.

The FBI and federal prosecutors are looking into whether donors to the foundation were improperly promised policy favors or special access to Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state in exchange for donations to the charity’s coffers, as well as whether tax-exempt funds were misused, the official said.
The investigation, led by the FBI field office in Little Rock, Arkansas, is being overseen by the US attorney’s office in the state, according to the source.
The inquiry was first reported by the The Hill, which cited law enforcement sources and a witness who was interviewed.
It’s unclear precisely what, if any, new evidence ignited the current federal investigation, after initial inquiries had stalled prior to the 2016 election.

Back to the facts and only the facts – they spell be trouble for Hillary (wanna be – two time loser for president) who had counted on the win. But to her surprise it didn’t work out that way. Now we are finding out the insidious relationship which played out during and after the campaign with the Department of State and Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Now it is coming out on who did what in Deep State to stymie the Trump presidency. Career insiders had their hands on the levers of power throwing up gauntlets to prevent the Trump administration from finding out the truth. However, as the leaks start to accumulate there will be deals made to get those involved to talk. And the will talk.

The former assistant FBI director who oversaw the bureau’s office in North Carolina said “nothing about the [Hillary Clinton] investigation was right.” Chris Swecker said that the FBI always uses grand juries and search warrants to obtain information about suspects or witnesses. “It doesn’t take a Congressional investigation [to show that] nothing about that investigation was right,” Swecker said.

 

Tucker Carlson noted that James Comey’s FBI began drafting Clinton’s exoneration document before all evidence had been gathered and before all witnesses were interviewed.

“That’s not how a real, thorough… investigation is conducted,” Swecker said, adding that the FBI normally doesn’t go to witnesses and ask “mother, may I?” to obtain information.

Swecker said that when he ran the FBI criminal division and Comey served on the corporate fraud task force, both men “played hardball.”

Swecker suspected Comey let his “inner circle” dictate the Clinton and Trump investigations, which led to them being allegedly tainted by political actions like Agent Peter Strzok’s text messages.

He said Comey’s “inner circle” had “predetermined opinions” about Clinton and Trump.

“That’s not the FBI that I know,” he said.
