CONFIRMED – A GREAT DAY FOR AMERICA

Today was a great day for America. The Senate confirmed a highly, maybe most qualified Justice to the Supreme Court, Judge Kavanaugh. The Democrats will never forget the head crushing defeat they incurred today.

The Republicans stood together to the very end. Great Job goes to Senator Mitch McConnell.

What brought us to this point was the very fact that America could not be duped by Hillary Clinton and the rest of her clan. Now the job to TAKE AMERICA BACK will turn to the Supreme Court. First on our list is the 14th Amendment. See below for details. Congratulations to the Republicans for a job well done. But please don’t turn your back for an instant as the Democrats have knife in hand and will stab you when you are not looking.

14TH AMENDMENT

Two years after the Civil War, the Reconstruction Acts of 1867 divided the South into five military districts, where new state governments, based on universal manhood suffrage, were to be established. Thus began the period known as Radical Reconstruction, which saw the 14th Amendment, which had been passed by Congress in 1866, ratified in July 1868. The amendment resolved pre-Civil War questions of African American citizenship by stating that “all persons born or naturalized in the United States…are citizens of the United States and of the state in which they reside.” The amendment then reaffirmed the privileges and rights of all citizens, and granted all these citizens the “equal protection of the laws.”

AN UN-GOING CRIME IS BEING COMMITTED – THE SUPREME COURT MUST ONCE AGAIN MUST STEP IN AND ADJUDICATE

the jurisdiction thereof.”

Overwhelming evidence against the interpretation of “subject to the jurisdiction thereof,” or “not subject to any foreign power” as reaffirming the common law doctrine of citizenship by birth to aliens can be found following the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment. In 1867 George Helm Yeaman, United States Minister to Denmark, in his well received treatise on allegiance and citizenship, which was presented to Secretary of State William H. Seward, said: “But 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.”

In the year 1873 the United States Attorney General ruled the word “jurisdiction” under the Fourteenth Amendment to mean, which Justice Gray would recognize in Elk v.Wilkins years later:

The word “jurisdiction” must be understood to mean absolute and complete jurisdiction, such as the United States had over its citizens before the adoption of this amendment… Aliens, among whom are persons born here and naturalized abroad, dwelling or being in this country, are subject to the jurisdiction of the United States only to a limited extent. Political and military rights and duties do not pertain to them. (14 Op. Atty-Gen. 300.)

House Report No. 784, dated June 22, 1874, stated, “The United States have not recognized a double allegiance. By our law a citizen is bound to be ‘true and faithful’ alone to our government.” There is no way in the world anyone can claim “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” affirms the feudal common law doctrine of birth citizenship to aliens because such doctrine by operation creates a “double allegiance” between separate nations.

If there is one inescapable truth to the text and debates, it is this: When Congress decided to require potential citizens to first be subject to the complete jurisdiction of the United States they by default excluded all citizens of other nations temporarily residing in the U.S. who had no intention of becoming citizens themselves or, disqualified of doing so under naturalization laws. This was no oversight because it was too simple to declare the common law rule of jus soli if indeed that was truly the desired goal by these very competent lawyers (both Howard and Trumbull were lawyers).

Aaron Sargent, a Representative from California during the Naturalization Act of 1870 debates said the Fourteenth Amendment’s citizenship clause was not a de-facto right for aliens to obtain citizenship. No one came forward to dispute this conclusion.

Perhaps because he was absolutely correct.

ROAD RAGE VENOMOUS ANIMAL FROTHS FROM THE MOUTH – ANARCHY IS THE AGENDA

They are coming and we will stop them, count on it. We must be prepared for war; one of a different kind, Americans against Americans. This is not a civil war in the in the typical sense. Now we find families divided by philosophy, red and blue states divided by differences in social policy.The liberal left has been activated by the likes of Obama, Holder, Lynch, Feinstein, Clinton and George Soros. We also mention today’s lying fake news media who were in bed with them to start. They were the ones who elected Obama.  However, we would be remiss to mention the four liberal justices on the Supreme Court. They have empowered the left. And with Trump successfully placing two conservatives on the Supreme Court this has set in motion the coming war, American against American.

Let’s face it, anyone nominated by Trump to sit on the Supreme Court would have faced the same scenario as Brett Kavanaugh. The Democrats would have found someone, even if it was 100 years ago, to conjure up allegation that they were molested by the nominee. These type of tactics are the same ones put forth by third world revolutionaries. They were picked up by Saul Alinsky a long time ago. Today these tactics are de ri·gueur by the progressive left.

The trash and burn crowd has not as of yet begun their mission. Take for instance the verbal bomb thrower Maxine Waters, who by the way will be spending time with Hillary Clinton behind bars, has been leading the mouth off-parade for impeachment. In the not too distant future the brain washed youth of today, their misguided parents who brought them up and those who leach off the government will be initiated in their quest to destroy the state.

Judge Kavanaugh who will become Justice Kavanaugh will be seated on the Supreme Court next week. A great victory for America. But don’t expect the protests to stop. They won’t! America is now in the first stage of a Civil War. The left Antifa crowd have given notice that they will continue to harass, badger and protest Patriotic Americans who believe in our ConstitutionThey engage in violent protest tactics, which has included property damage and physical violence.

No matter what transpires from here on out, we can see with our eyes wide open what is really happening. And don’t forget President Obama thru the first bomb. He is the one who divided America like no other. Obama brought Identity politics to the fore.  Obviously his was a ploy to destroy the American fabric that made America Great. Every one of his hires was in the mold of Saul Alinsky; Rules for Radicals.pngthe same model they used in their vain attempt to destroy Kavanaugh. 

Obama got his shot and now we are getting ours.This crowd will be paid back in spaces. So let it be written, So let it be done.”

Venomous animals frothing at the mouth have taken control of the Democrat party, they are not or never were interested in the values that made America Great. They are only interested in taking us down, bringing America to the gutter. They speak gutter politics. This crowd wants to destroy us like Castro destroyed Cuba, like Chavez destroyed Venezuela, like Ortega is destroying Nicaragua. They are hate mongers with violent anger running in their bones. They will never live down that TRUMP won and they lost large

What they did to Judge Kavanaugh was beyond the pale. This was a manifestation of the deep hatred they have for America.

Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia (GIVE HIM CREDIT FOR STANDING UP)will be the only Democrat voting for Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. This is an manifestation of the hate filled vitriolic anger of those spineless gutless Senators of the Democratic party that has been hijacked by the liberal progressive socialist TRAITOR. They are liars, cheats and schemers. They have been called out for truly what they are. THEY ARE NOTHING.

They want war, a civil war. However, when war arrives and it will, their adversaries will be us, the 2nd Amendment aficionados. To tell you the truth it will be a real blood bath. Now don’t take us wrong here, we are not advocating violence, but sometimes the best offense is  a good defense. They have fired the first shot

We must go further to describe the bitter attitude the progressive left harbors. It all started a long long time ago. It started with the RINO who compromised their principals, that is if they ever had any, to break bread with the progressive scum, who by the way toasted their efforts and success behind closed doors.

OUR PERSON OF THE YEAR – SENATOR SUSAN COLLINS – A DONE DEAL

We don’t take this responsibility lightly, but thoroughly identify, investigate, interrogate and interview various intellectuals to get their take on who should deserve such an honor as our choice for Person of the year. With that being said, we were blind sided yesterday by Senator Susan Collins.

For it has been a very long time where she did what was right for America. Thank you Susan for telling it like it is. (click here)Her lengthy speech, which will be played over and over again and go down as one of the best in American history.

Senator Collins did what was right for America. So without further ado, we choose Senator Collins as the New Boston Tea Party Person of the year. Susan Collins official Senate photo.jpg

THEY ARE ALL LIARS

Feinstein, DaNang BlumenthalFord, Clinton they aforementioned are all liars, their stench follows them wherever they go. Today the FBI investigation will wrap up and a vote on the soon to be Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh will to take place. What has transpired is a Democrat inspired witch hunt. Witnesses lied as did the accuser. There is no supporting corroborating evidence to back up the “lying Ford.” Her delusion is the result of a pipe dream, a self inflicted psychosis which inflicts those of the Democrat persuasion. To them what is not real is real; another words their dreams become reality. Remember, a lie said often enough become the truth to the liar. They are a victim of their own device.

We want Dorothy Rabinowitz to weigh in on this. Rabinowitz wrote exposés of the dubious sexual abuse charges filed against the operators of day care centers and other individuals, notably that of a family named Amirault in Malden, Massachusetts.  The prosecution of the Amiraults was nothing more than a Democrat witch hunt. Please Dorothy, step up on this one; America needs you once again. 

REMEMBER THESE TWO QUOTES – VITRIOLIC HATRED

RUTH BADER GINSBURG ON TRUMP:

“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” Ginsburg told The New York Times in a July 2016 interview in her Supreme Court chambers. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.” Ginsburg doubled down on those comments in a subsequent interview with CNN, calling Trump a “faker,” and adding: “”He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego.”

CHUCK SCHUMER ON BRET KAVANAUGH:

Chuck Schumer, in his own words, Brett Kavanaugh has “No presumption of innocence.”

According to Schumer, the constitution doesn’t apply to Supreme Court Justice Nominees who have a track record of adhering to the Constitution.

THEY WANT WAR – NUCLEAR WAR IS WHAT THEY WILL GET

NUCLEAR 51 IS COMING

File:Nuclear symbol.svg

Feinstein ought to be censured for withholding vital information from the Judiciary Committee. This was a ploy from the outset. To extend the hearings until the November election. But as we have seen, the accuser, has not proved by not only the shadow of a doubt, but by any of her testimony that an event took place 35 years ago which she was assaulted.

For one, she had no witnesses, didn’t know who was at the party, did know where the party was, had no idea how she got there or got home. Most of all, SHE HAD NO WITNESSES. To top it off she told no one for thirty years. She is a Democrat; does that tell you anything? 

Kavanaugh is a judge with unquestionable qualifications. He has been vetted by politicians, by the American Bar Association and investigated by the FBI. Kavanaugh has come out of all this as Mr. Clean. To taint a Patriot with allegations that are unproveable are the depths which Democrats will go to. They did not win the election. Because they didn’t they are using anything in their arsenal to destroy the Trump presidency, they are waging war. 

We will win when this is all over. Americans have seen the Democrat scoundrels for what they are. They are nothing. 

When the election is over and the Republicans hold the House and Senate, the Nuclear Option must be activated. This means that only 51 votes are needed in the Senate to pass a bill.

Go Nuclear Mitch McConnell. You have seen the enemy up close, they are dirt bags from the get-go. Set the record straight; send them a message, one that will shake the very marrow of their bones.

Become a Hero Mitch, do the right thing, do it for America.

CHINA, NOT ONLY THE U.S. ENEMY BUT THE WHOLE WORLD

Fox News Channel logo.svg

On Monday President Trump will address the United Nations General Assembly. It will be another opportunity for the president to set out his “America First” agenda and to explain that it’s better, and more democratic, for sovereign nations to work together to solve problems than to hand over power to remote and unaccountable international bureaucracies.

His approach is a stark contrast to the globalist ideology that has held sway for far too long – the idea that individual countries should subordinate their own national interest to some vague notion of the “global interest.”

This was the thinking that led to the biggest foreign policy mistake of the last two decades: the globalists’ insistence on engagement with China. Mesmerized by their own fantasy of an economically borderless world – convenient for global corporations but disastrous for American workers – the elitists have helped bring China’s brutal, authoritarian Communist regime to the brink of achieving its long planned-for attempt at world domination.

We often hear about how we’ve been losing out to China economically – and that’s true. But the case against China is a moral one too.

UN and U.S. officials have estimated that China has literally imprisoned one million Muslims in internment camps. Reports include brainwashing to force Muslims to worship dictator Xi Jinping instead of Allah.

President Trump should reject in its entirety the failed China strategy of his globalist predecessors.

China’s vile “social credit” system is using the world’s most sophisticated technology in an Orwellian effort to monitor, track and control every Chinese citizen and punish those who step out of line.

And the dictators of Beijing are now spreading their poison internationally, colonizing countries around the world with an imperialist aggression far worse than anything in history.

President Trump should now reject in its entirety the failed China strategy of his globalist predecessors. This means not just continuing, through tariffs, to pressurize the Chinese regime on issues like the theft of vital technology from American companies.

He needs to go bigger, and bolder. At the UN and beyond, he should rally the whole world behind a simple but audacious goal: to topple Xi Jinping’s regime by turning China into a pariah state.

It must start with economics. For a long time, our economic interaction with China was minimal. That all changed when, with U.S. backing, China joined the World Trade Organization in 2000.

The elitists argued that by integrating China into the world economy, we would benefit financially through increased, mutually beneficial trade and investment; and that we would benefit strategically by moving China away from communism towards openness and maybe even democracy.

Of course the exact opposite happened, on both fronts. Over the next few years, manufacturing jobs in America were destroyed on a massive scale as China used its newfound access to “dump” its state-subsidized exports into the American and world markets.

And instead of moving towards democracy, China has become ever more authoritarian and aggressive. The only difference is that now, it is incomparably richer and more empowered to assert its hegemonic mania – thanks to the elitists’ catastrophic misjudgment.

Both President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama pathetically failed to stand up to China’s economic imperialism and global expansionism. Neither had the backs of working Americans; instead, they just wanted to look like good global players to their big business donors and foreign policy experts – all of whom are now utterly humiliated as the true scale of the establishment’s China debacle becomes apparent.

The Chinese have turned intellectual property theft into a weapon of war.

The greedy, foolish elites were mesmerized by the prospect of untold riches from China’s untapped consumer markets – little realizing that China would never be as stupid as we were, and allow foreign competitors to get the edge. The gullible and naive ‘Asia experts’ labored under the impression that if we gave China the Olympics, if we engaged on China’s terms, if we got China into the trading system, then China would become more democratic, human rights would improve, and we would all be a lot richer.

Well the Chinese got richer. And the elites in America got richer. But is China any more democratic? No; it has regressed, if that is possible, from communist oligarchy to an increasingly totalitarian state. Is China playing by the rules? No; it is quite literally taking islands from its neighbors, ignoring intentional rulings, and flouting agreed maritime boundaries. Instead of playing by the established rules of the international community it is actively setting its own, creating a network of quiescent countries – including in Europe – through its One Belt, One Road infrastructure initiative. Its aggressive cyber-warfare against America has included not only industrial espionage but the theft of Americans’ personal data on a massive scale.

Meanwhile, Chinese industry continues to undercut American manufacturing, totally disproportionate tariffs are levied on foreign imports to China and currency manipulation has further put our exporters at an unfair disadvantage. Even when China does allow American corporations to compete in its markets, it’s entirely on the regime’s terms: American companies cannot own their own Chinese businesses, they can only operate through joint ventures. And for technology companies, a condition of operation is to hand over commercial secrets in vital areas like AI and quantum computing. The Chinese have turned intellectual property theft into a weapon of war.

I hate to say I told you so – but I told you so.

Against the grain of the elite’s embarrassing China swoon, I argued all along that no good would come of this. While I was working In Downing Street I typically stayed away from foreign policy but I did have one early victory as I persuaded David Cameron, in the teeth of frantic protests from the Foreign Office and Treasury, that his first major international visit as Prime Minister should be to India not China. Of course the corrupt apparatchiks of Beijing, by now accustomed to over a decade of craven kowtowing by the supine West, were infuriated.

And sure enough, the China-skeptic posture I advocated was reversed in an instant, culminating in the abject humiliation of a lavish state visit to Britain for the brutal dictator Xi Jinping, paraded through the streets of London in a gold carriage while goons from the Chinese Embassy beat up pro-democracy protesters just a few feet away.

Well now we know. We can’t pretend that China wants anything less than world domination – economically, technologically, politically, militarily. We can’t waste time hoping it will play by our rules. It won’t. The sooner we realize that, the sooner we can take the aggressive stance we need to isolate this rising giant of a rival. We put all our might into fighting and winning the Cold War against the Soviets; the Chinese regime is an infinitely bigger threat because unlike the Soviet Union it is an economic powerhouse. Military conflict between China and America isn’t inevitable, and I’m not advocating that we go down that path. But for our long term prosperity, and for a world run according to the values of openness and democracy, we must take aggressive action now, even at the cost of short-term pain.

Yes we have to get tough on our trade imbalances with China, as President Trump has been doing. But we can and should go further than that. When I was at Oxford, I proudly joined protests against apartheid South Africa. They were rightly an international pariah for their despicable treatment of the majority of their people.

It’s time for a complete economic boycott of China. We can start by imposing exactly the same conditions on Chinese companies in America as the ones imposed on American companies in China: no independent operations, compulsory joint ventures and the forced handover of intellectual property. How long do you think Chinese companies would stay here on that basis? Next: no American company or investor should be permitted to support China’s various schemes for world domination like One Belt One Road. All U.S. companies in China should pull out, and no new investments should be made.

Yes this seems drastic but in the long run it is our only hope of putting sufficient pressure on the vile Beijing regime that it might collapse from within. China is our enemy, not our “partner,” and we need to start acting like it.

DEEP STATE INSIDE COUP – SEDITION MUST NOT GO UNPUNISHED – FROM FOX NEWS

Fox News Channel logo.svgGregg Jarrett: Rod Rosenstein’s coup attempt to depose Trump should not go unpunished

 

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s actions, as recounted by the New York Times Friday, are the equivalent of an attempted coup — a plot to overthrow the president.

As the Times reveals, Rosenstein was furious that Democrats blamed him for the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

Rosenstein, who had volunteered to write the firing memorandum, was “regretful and emotional.”  His behavior was described as “erratic.”

He blamed Trump.

So, in an apparent act of vengeance, he proposed secretly recording the president to try to gain damaging information about him.

He solicited others to wear wires, including Andrew McCabe, who was later fired as Assistant FBI Director. Rosenstein is said to have discussed recruiting cabinet members to depose Trump under the 25th Amendment.

All of this is reportedly evidenced in memos, including those written by McCabe.

Friday afternoon, in response to the Times story, Michael R. Bromwich, Andrew McCabe’s attorney issued this statement for the record:

“Andrew McCabe drafted memos to memorialize significant discussions he had with high level officials and preserved them so he would have an accurate, contemporaneous record of those discussions. When he was interviewed by the Special Counsel more than a year ago, he gave all of his memos — classified and unclassified — to the Special Counsel’s office. A set of those memos remained at the FBI at the time of his departure in late January 2018. He has no knowledge of how any member of the media obtained those memos.”

Rosenstein strongly denied that the facts recounted by the Times.

“The New York Times’s story is inaccurate and factually incorrect,” he told Fox News. “I will not further comment on a story based on anonymous sources who are obviously biased against the department and are advancing their own personal agenda. But let me clear about this: Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment.”

Additionally, Rosenstein also said this in a statement: “I never pursued or authorized recording the President and any suggestion that I have ever advocated for the removal of the President is absolutely false.”

So who is telling the truth?

Consider this: Is it any wonder that Rosenstein has refused to produce those records which Congress lawfully demanded months ago? Rosenstein has been trying to cover-up evidence of his own wrongdoing.  This may constitute obstruction of justice by withholding incriminating evidence.

Were Rosenstein’s words merely sarcasm, as some suggest? Here are two critical passages in the Time’s story:

“One participant asked whether Mr. Rosenstein was serious, and he replied animatedly that he was.”

According to the others who described his comments, Mr. Rosenstein not only confirmed that he was serious about the idea but also followed up by suggesting that other FBI officials who were interviewing to be the bureau’s director could also secretly record Mr. Trump.”    

This invites the question: did Robert Mueller, who interviewed with Trump to be FBI Director the day before he accepted the job as special counsel, wear a wire? Probably not. But as I explained in my book, “The Russia Hoax,” Mueller may have been there to gather evidence against Trump during his interview with the president.  It was one of the three reasons why Mueller should have recused himself.  Yet, he refused to do so.

Mueller’s Investigation Should Be Terminated

Rosenstein should be fired immediately. Proposing to secretly record the president is, at the very least, a violation of regulations that govern a security clearance.

Importantly, the entire special counsel investigation should be promptly terminated.  This illegitimate probe has been tainted by corruption from the outset, and this is just the latest in a mountain of damning evidence.

Rosenstein has been in charge of the Mueller probe. Yet, it is clear that he harbors an extreme bias against Trump. How can anyone now view the investigation as fair, objective and neutral? It is not.  It never has been.

The special counsel probe has been compromised and contaminated by Rosenstein’s actions, Mueller’s refusal to disqualify himself, the misconduct of former FBI agent Peter Strzok, and the obvious bias of lead prosecutor Andrew Weissmann.

From the moment Trump was sworn in as president, saboteurs at the FBI and Justice Department have worked furiously to undue the election results and frame Trump for “colluding” with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.

They conjured a false case based on a fabricated “dossier” paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and composed by a British spy who was fired for lying.

They misappropriated that document to launch the Trump-Russia investigation without probable cause. They then exploited the same “dossier” to wiretap a Trump campaign associate, Carter Page. In the process, they concealed vital evidence and deceived FISA judges, perpetrating a fraud on the court.

Those who abused their positions of power to subvert the rule of law and undermine the democratic process should be held accountable.

It should begin with the firing of Rod Rosenstein. It should end with a presentment to a grand jury for potential criminal indictments.

THE “KILLAS” MEXICO-COLUMBIA-VENEZUELA-BRAZIL – STREETS FILLED WITH BLOOD

They live by the gun and die by the gun. The allowing of ruthless individuals from South American countries to illegally enter our country is an insult to the every day American who goes about his/her business in a peaceful manner. The only way to stop the “killas” from entering the USA is a strong wall at our southern border. “So let it be written, so let it be done.”

Latin America has suffered more than 2,500,000 murders since the start of this century and is facing an acute public security crisis that demands urgent and innovative solutions, a new report warns. Latin America suffers 33% of the world’s homicides despite having only 8% of its population. One-quarter of all global homicides are concentrated in four countries – Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and Venezuela.

Nearly one in every four murders around the world takes place in just four countries: Brazil, Venezuela, Mexico and Colombia. Last year, a record 63,808 people were murdered in Brazil. Mexico also set a record at 31,174, with murders so far this year up another 20%.

The 2016 tally in China, according to the U.N.: 8,634. For the entire European Union: 5,351. The United States: 17,250.

In recent years, growing numbers of families from Central America, including women and children, have fled to the U.S. because of horrific violence. Gangs such as MS-13 and Barrio 18 enforce a reign of terror, dictating even where people can go to school or get medical care. El Salvador’s murder rate of 83 per 100,000 people in 2016—the world’s highest—was nearly 17 times that of the U.S.

ACAPULCO, Mexico—It was the beginning of just another day in one of the world’s most murderous places.

Cristian Sabino was sitting on a plastic chair by this beach resort’s central market when a gunman walked up and shot him five times. As the 22-year-old dropped to the ground, the assailant fired a final bullet to the head and walked away. Six more people would be killed that day in Acapulco, including a cabdriver who was hacked to pieces. Death is so much part of the landscape that once police cordoned off the area around Mr. Sabino’s body, some patrons at a nearby rotisserie chicken restaurant stayed to finish their meals.

Acapulco’s days as a tourist resort with a touch of Hollywood glamour seem long ago. In a city of 800,000, 953 people were violently killed last year, more than in Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Portugal and the Netherlands put together.

The only thriving businesses around here are funeral homes,” says Laura Caballero, the head of a shopkeeper association. She closed her eight shops along the city’s main beachfront avenue three years ago due to monthly extortion demands that reached $800 per store. She says several fellow shopkeepers who refused to pay were killed.

It’s not just Mexico. There is a murder crisis across much of Latin America and the Caribbean, which today is the world’s most violent region. Every day, more than 400 people are murdered there, a yearly tally of about 145,000 dead.

Between 2000 and 2017, roughly 2.5 million people were murdered in Latin America and the Caribbean, as if Chicago were wiped out. That compares with about 900,000 killed in the armed conflicts of Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan combined, according to U.N. figures and estimates by groups like Iraq Body Count. During that same period, all the world’s terrorist attacks killed 243,000 people, according to the University of Maryland’s Global Terrorism Database.

“Large swaths of Brazil, Colombia, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico and Venezuela are experiencing a war in all but name,” says Robert Muggah, head of the Igarapé Institute.

In Acapulco, what once saw sleek yachts cruise into their dockside births, now sees dead bodies float up on shore, but no tourists are walking by. But don’t let any of this fool you. The cause of all this anarchy is due to criminal minded politicians who have failed to harness in the “killa machine.”

WE NEED A WALL MORE THAN EVER”. BUILD THAT WALL PRESIDENT TRUMP, WE WANT WHAT HAPPENS IN LATIN AMERICA TO STAY THERE. CHICAGO, BALTIMORE AND SAINT LOUIS ARE ENOUGH.
