We Need A National Crisis, Now

Senator Mitch McConnell and Sarah Huckabee Sanders are reported as saying that the President will sign legislation to fund the g’mint and, also, sign an exec order declaring a ‘national crisis’ at the southern border. In doing so he will quell some dim anxiety over keeping g’mint open and create a fracas in congress/senate over ‘abuse of exec power’ re declaring a national crisis. I suspect GOP globalists will fight him harder than the dims over funding the wall thru declaring a crisis at the border.

I am going to go with Hannity and Laura Ingram and suggest he should not approve the legislative bill to keep g'mint functioning. As the legislation commits a measly $1.5B for 'fencing' President Trump and the country has nothing to gain by signing the border security bill. Would be best to just let the House and Senate come to terms on how to keep g'mint open.

Getting funds thru a declaration of national crisis may take a year or so to nail down but, this approach seems to be the only means to securing wall funding. If the President doesn't get a start on the wall he will be in a much weaker posit going into the 2020's. 'Git er dun, Mr. President'.

Were the GOP globalist/open borders/Trump hater's not standing in Trump's way he could achieve much over the next five years. I'm hopeful that a few more 'hater's' will get removed during the upcoming elections.

The dims barely matter in this battle and in the coming years, IMO. dims are just a train wreck. They rail against 'old white guys' but only 'ole Bernie' and 'ole Biden' are likely the only folks who can come up with the dough to run. Would the 'communist news network' support Hillary, Pocahuntas, Bebe, Ocasio and the like? dims have run so far to the left no sensible organization would want to support them. dims have labeled everybody with some kind of hateful idiom. Yet, the dims are the most pathetic, divided, hate filled, immature, and so on . . . folks in the country. The federal g'mint may be called on to provide funds for some dim to stand for election.

And, to think that any one of them would be willing to stand up to Trump - - - the old ant crawlin up an elephants leg with rape on its mind. And, talk about rape - - - seems every day the papers are full of dims being lambasted for some sexual escapade. That withstanding, if the election was based on who was the most horny Trump would still win, hands down. . . IMO.

And, b4 somebody beats me to it - - - you can say you heard it hear first. Ivanka Trump will be the first woman president of the United States. She is being groomed for the job 24/7 and will be ready in 2024.

What a wonderful future we have in front of us for the foreseeable future. God bless President Trump and the USA…

We have a crisis, resulting in 2,000 homicides per year by criminal non-citizens, and 70,237 deaths per year due to drug overdoses (about half of which are due to illegal drugs crossing the U.S./Mexico border) !

Jim Acosta and some other FAKE NEWS journalists were challenging Trump about whether there is really a (a)crisis at the border, and where Trump gets his (b)statistics on crime by criminal non-citizens, and (c)illegal border crossings.

(a) As for a crisis, 2,000 homicides per year by non-citizens is 2,000 reasons it is a crisis. The majority of the Main Stream Media (MSM) lies about it.

(b) As for crime statistics, blame it on the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which shows crime rates by criminal non-citizens is far higher than crime rates by U.S. citizens.

(c) As for border crossing apprehensions, the numbers dipped to 396,579 in FY2017, but increased in 2018, and will probably increase more in 2019, due to multiple caravans with 5,000-to-10,000 immigrants per caravan.

    Democrats (and similar ilk) consistently want to abolish or restrict 2nd amendment rights, and say it is worth it “even if it saves only ONE life”, but conveniently ignore 2,000 homicides per year by criminal non-citizens. No hypocrisy there, eh?

    ONE homicide by a criminal non-citizen in the U.S. is ONE too many, because it is a preventable crime, that should have never happened.

    Democrat and Republican politicians BOTH created the illegal immigration disaster.
    Democrats and Republicans politicians BOTH wanted the cheap labor.
    However, today, the Democrats also want the votes, as proven by the Democrats’ actions for the past 30+ years listed below, in which Democrats:

    • (01) are despicably pitting U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants against each other for votes, by pandering to illegal immigrants for 30+ years, for more votes (via more representation in the House, via more U.S. House representatives, via apportionment of representatives (and more electoral votes, and more federal funding), based on population, based on the decennial CENSUS, which does NOT verify U.S. citizenship);
    • (02) are also fighting against a [x]citizenship check-box on decennial CENSUS;
    • (03) are lying about level of crime by illegal immigrants, and refuse to report 2,000 homicides per year by criminal non-citizens (source: DHS, GAO, cis.org);
    • (04) are lying about the cost of massive illegal (and legal) immigration (about $300 Billion per year in net losses; sources: www.washingtontimes.com ; www.youtube.com/watch?v=msGVs4lFDw4 );
    • (05) are calling for open borders;
    • (06) are calling for the abolishment of I.C.E.;
    • (07) are calling for another amnesty, like the shamnesty of 1986;
    • (08) are refusing the requirement for employers to use eVerify (or similar service);
    • (09) want to give illegal immigrants drivers’ licenses, and also automatically register them to vote at the same time;
    • (10) want more mayors like Libby Schaaf, who warns illegal immigrants before an ICE raid to arrest criminal illegal immigrants;
    • (11) want more sanctuary cities and states, where Democrats (and A.G. Xavier Becerra) passed sanctuary city and state laws that protect criminal non-citizens (e.g. an illegal immigrant, Garcia Zarate (already deported 5 times) can shoot and murder Kate Steinle, and be acquitted for that murder);
    • (12) want to abolish or restrict 2nd Amendment rights, and say it is worth it “even if it saves only ONE life”, but conveniently ignore 2,000 homicides per year by criminal non-citizens;

    Wouldn’t you think, if the federal government was responsible for controlling immigration into the individual states, they would do it to benefit the most unpopulated states first?

    Why isn’t the federal government populating areas like the Dakotas, or Nabraska, or Idaho? If they’re all supposed to assimilate to be Americans, what difference does it make to the immigrant?

    It makes more sense to put immigrants into underpopulated states and to have those states increase their representation in the HOR than to pile them all into NY, TX, FL, and CA to create a monopoly.

    The federal government, no, the President of the United States is responsible for the well being of all the states, not just the most populated states. If you want to talk about a constitutional crisis, I’d like to talk about the federal government allowing the most populated states to dominate the immigration issue.

    There aren’t enough despicable Democrats in some of those states yet (i.e. WY,SD,ID,ND,etc.) to turn them into sanctuary states, so they can despicably pit illegal immigrants and U.S. citizens against each other for more votes, money and power.

    So the lack of leadership/incredibly weak leadership by Trump is getting to you Roy! I can remember when Big Lie proponents such as yourself were all about stopping Obama and telling everyone that would listen that it was weak leadership that was the problem. Now that the political opposition is not marching lockstep to some of the nationalist populist/conservative/neo-Fascist/Authoritarian/oligarchy/Neo-Nazi you guys get all bent out of shape.

    Anyway I hope Trump gets his way on the faux national emergency scam he is running. Once the conservative activist on the SCOTUS clear the way for him to usurp the power of the peoples house it will be much easier in the future for a Dem to declare a national emergency over healthcare insurance or some real issue. Just think AO-C taking a trillion or so from the military budget for medicare for all!

    It seems that our Liberal Pal j2t2 never misses an opportunity to be wrong regarding his comments on “usurp the power of the peoples house.”

    His entire premises rest on his belief that President Trump, should his “emergency action declaration” be found constitutional by the Supreme Court, would automatically find any similar declaration by any president constitutional.

    I challenge j2t2 to find any such “rubber stamping” by any Supreme Court. I heard Nancy Pelosi make the same befuddled argument regarding gun laws. It is always disappointing to find such ignorance among our Democrat leaders.

    Face it Royal if this “national emergency” declared by Trump meets the criteria of the law then certainly anything else would. Trump has a majority conservative court if the case makes it to the SCOTUS but he doesn’t have the intent of the law on his side. Should the far right court side with him then anything could be declared a “national emergency” and be able to survive a court decision because precedence has been set.

    I find it hard to believe conservative judges would go against the rule of law and the constitution just to grant Trump some money for his pet project. I mean how many presidents have declared a national emergency and then went to his resort for the weekend? Do you believe the judges are that partisan and short minded to do such a thing?

    Why you guys are so authoritarian? Forced relocations to low population states on top of the president usurping powers the Constitution gave to the representatives of the people. Then of course D.’s psychological projections on power is laughable as Trump does exactly that.

    Obama forced immigrants into states that didn’t want them.

    The president has the constitutional authority to protect the borders. It’s written in black and white. He has every right to call this a national emergency when the congress wouldn’t move.

    There is no constitutional authority to claim a national emergency to hand out free health care to everyone. None.

    The 2nd amendment grants the people the right to bear arms. No national emergency can change that. Pelosi’s hubris is making her a laughingstock.

    A trillion from the military budget would take care of one year of spending in medicare’s budget in 2017. Where will the civilization destroyer get the money for the next year?

    Only a despicable moron would say the following is not, and/or has not been emergency now, and for many years:
    • (1) 2,000 homicides per year (5.5 per day) by criminal non-citizens (for 2017 and 2018); thousands of victims: site2data.com/victims1.html ;

    Right.
    Pelosi, and many (if not most) Democrats, and similar ilk are despicable.

    Many (if not most) Democrats are despicable hypocrites that want to restrict or eliminate 2nd Amendment rights, and say it is worth it “even if it saves only ONE life”, but those same hypocritical Democrats conveniently ignore 2,000 homicides per year by criminal non-citizens (for 2017 and 2018; sources: www.cnsnews.com/news/article/craig-bannister/dems-snub-dhs-presentation-detailing-illegal-immigration-threat-during ; www.gao.gov/assets/320/316959.pdf ).

    Hopefully, the majority of Americans are catching on the Democrats’ despicable scheme, which despicably pits U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants against each other for more votes, money, and power.

    The Democrats have not sunk this low since the Democrats:

    • (1) sought to continue slavery (source: www.britannica.com/topic/Democratic-Party),
    • (2) created the KKK (source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ku_Klux_Klan),
    • (3) create Jim Crow laws (source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Crow_laws),

    Here we go again (as usual). j2t2 is calling people (who disagree with him): “Populist Nationalist/Conservative/neo-Fascist/Authoritarian/Neo-Nazi/Oligarchs here on WB”, which is a sure sign of failing arguments.

    j2t2 obfuscates again: Were your stats [i.e. the stats are from the GAO, DHS, CIS, FAIR, IDA, Yale, & MIT] true they still wouldn’t compare to the number of gun deaths each year in the USA.
    That’s total nonsense, the overal homicide rate in the U.S. (with a population of 328 Million people) by U.S. citizens, is significantly less than the homicide rate of criminal non-citizens.
    FOR YEAR 2017 and 2018:
    • The Department of Homeland Security reports that there were 4,000 homicides arrests in 2017 and 2018 (i.e. 2,000 homicides arrests per year; 5.5 homicides per day) by criminal non-citizens.
      The total number of non-citizens in the U.S. in year 2018 is: 25.3 Million.
    • The homicide rate for non-citizens in year 2018 is (2,000 homicides / 25.3 Million) = 0.00007905 (assuming 1 homicide per non-citizen).
    • The homicide rate for U.S. citizens (nation-wide) in year 2018 is (16,072 homicides / 328 Million) = 0.000049 .
    • Therefore: 0.00007905 / 0.000049 = 1.61 (i.e. the homicide rate is 61% higher for non-citizens, than for U.S. citizens) for year 2018.
    j2t2 also seems to believe guns are the problem.
    Therefore, perhaps the U.S. should also ban pencilz, becuz thay misspell wordz, and we should ban spoons because they make people fat?

    Again, j2t2 claims the data is false, despite the fact that the data is from the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Center for Immigration Studies, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analysis, Yale University, and MIT. According to j2t2 (and similar socialist extremist ilk), ALL of those agencies and organizations are lying.

    j2t2, and many (if not most) Democrats are despicable hypocrites that want to restrict or eliminate 2nd Amendment rights, and say it is worth it “even if it saves ONLY ONE life”, but j2t2 and those same hypocritical Democrats conveniently ignore 2,000 homicides per year by criminal non-citizens (for 2017 and 2018; sources: www.cnsnews.com/news/article/craig-bannister/dems-snub-dhs-presentation-detailing-illegal-immigration-threat-during ; www.gao.gov/assets/320/316959.pdf ), which is a significantly higher homicide rate by criminal non-citizens.

    Again, j2t2’s arguments fail miserable, so j2t2 tries and tries to obfuscate the truth, but only succeeds (as usual) at making a fool of himself (i.e. repeatedly calling others Nazis and Fascists).

    The fact is I stated an opinion Royal nothing more.

    Anyway as a religious man, Royal, how do you rationalize Leviticus 19-34, which says “But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.” with your attacks on illegal immigration?

    Seems to me Trump, who some evangelical preachers claim to be sent by God, isn’t living up to the his beliefs on this issue. Yet when it comes to LBTGQ issues the word of God is used as a rationalization. How do you guys pick and choose what parts of the bible to live by?

    Here’s an excerpt from former Vice President Biden speaking before the Munich Security Conference.

    “The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that’s not right. The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly that it is not right. That it is not who we are.”

    Despite attacking the Trump administration for family separations at the border, this policy was active during the Obama Administration as well.

    It is difficult to believe that good old Joe could speak out against law and order in America. These wanna-be presidents go abroad to rail against the American government and people. This is despicable.

    Wow…j2t2 is a gift for those of us who love to laugh.

    Now, he wants me to justify why I “attack” something that is “illegal”.

    OH, I don’t know j2t2, maybe because I am law-abiding.

    Not enough integrity to answer the real question Royal? You seem ti think you are smarter than the rest of us yet you cannot even answer a simple question unless you attack the messenger! Then you decide for the red herring “Despite attacking the Trump administration for family separations at the border, this policy was active during the Obama Administration as well.” as if mass incarceration of children was common before Trump took office. What a moron.

    D. detached from reality! You can only attack the messenger yourself so what makes you think you are some how attached to “reality”? You have to use strawman arguments and attacking the messenger yet you think you are real! Get over yourself D..

    You jokers are pathetic. You have sunk to the level of Trump. Devoid of any moral compass, zero integrity, will lie just to lie, and wouldn’t be able to tell the truth if you knew what it was. True Trumpsters.

    J2, you broached a key issue in citing Leviticus. The divided country we have today is that people don’t fully understand the meaning of social justice. I’m near the last person who should try to bring clarity to the social justice issue but, with my Pastor’s recent literature on the subject, lemme try.

    In the beginning (lol) the Founders put it down on paper in the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal, that they are ENDOWED by the Creator with certain unalienable Rights … . . That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” (Value placed on the individual made in the image of God) … . to ensure God-given rights to the Individual.

    And, j2, don’t come back with that “Jefferson was a slave holder” and so on …

    It says “in order to form a MORE perfect union. .. they knew slavery was wrong. We should all see that the idea of America is a beautiful thing. Instead so many, thru a lack of understanding social justice, like to put the country down every chance they get.

    Contrast that with the French revolution (Declaration of the Rights of Man). “The principle of all sovereignty resides essentially in the NATION.” (Value placed on the collective).

    God favors the individual over collectivism.

    Justice infers the type of lifestyle that ensures that a person is living right before God and treats everyone in a godly way. The general consensus of justice was pretty good until about 100 years back. Now, social justice is based on a new morality, not based in scripture but founded upon Secular Humanism.

    There are humongous churches across the land plying social justice to the max but not based in God’s teachings. Not a problem to ignore laws, do run-arounds on the Constitution and so on …

    The word ‘justice’ is a good word. But add ‘social’ to it and you get an agenda, a political cause. Correctness is a good word but add the word ‘political’ to it and the word is hijacked, could be bad for your health if you say the wrong thing.

    We didn’t start out with Medicare, Social Security, Taxes and so on … “The AFLCIO is to improve the lives of working families - - to bring economic justice to the workplace and social justice to our nation.” The secular idea of social justice doesn’t need to be debated, it is absolute, in their minds.

    A recent UN report re social justice said: “Social Justice is not possible without strong and coherent redistributive policies conceived and implemented by public agencies.” “Present day believers in absolute truth identified with virtue and justice are neither willing nor desirable companions for the defenders of Social Justice.” They are just in the way.

    Only the state can bring this about. The state must always increase it power to ‘do good things.” The state, that in the name of freedom and rights, stripped away the rights of pre=born babies. We can’t even say that anymore, it’s no longer just the pre-born, it is the born.

    And, we all are FORCED to do what government wants.

    Getting back… Recall where God said to leave some of your crops in field unharvested so the poor could come in and glean the remaining? With the idea being that it was necessary to take care of the poor but that the poor would also work for their own interest.

    Our Founders had it right and Ben Franklin was quoted with, “I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means, I think the best way of doing good to the poor is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it”.

    We are divided because too many people think that digging wells or feeding the hungry is Christ-like. They have bought into the social justice mantra. They have lost sight of eternity.

    A fact that gov’t run charity has on average a 70% overhead while private sector charities average a 30% overhead. I would think most church charity has next to zero overhead.

    Wow that’s what they are teaching in your church these days Roy? Sounds more like a convention of ALEC types than a spiritual place. Do they pay taxes?

    Anyway, I guess you, in your own way, tried to answer my question by going to a broader more conceptual outlook. But you didn’t really answer my question other than to say if we twist these words around here and interpret them this way then when the sun is shining on a Tuesday it all comes together. Very defensive and very blame the other guys, your pastors literature is.

    But if you interpret the bible as evangelicals do why are you guys disobeying the word of God. Leviticus is pretty clear after all. So once again how do you guys, not secular humanist or social justice warriors or pro choice types rationalize ignoring the word of God in this case and yet when it comes to LBGTQ types pouncing upon the bible and claiming religious freedom to persecute others?

    Roy,
    That’s a good point about the difference between individual rights and the demands to conform to the collective.

    Consider unions, and trying to force all workers to conform and join the union, and pay union dues. It took a Supreme Court decision to allow teachers to opt-out of union membership.

    Consider forcing children to attend government-run education, and the right to “school choice” and “school vouchers”.

    Consider the veterans healthcare from the government-run VA system (in which veterans were waiting months and years for an appointment), and the right of the veteran to choose a private doctor (however, the VA has still managed to screw up the choice programs, since all appointments have to be funneled through the VA, and are still subject to bureaucracy of nightmare proportions).

    Consider the socialist/leftist extremists that think more government-run systems (usually bloated, wasteful, corrupt, and incompetent) is the solution for most (if not all) problems, versus more freedom and competition.

    j2, exactly what I expected. Ignore the Declaration of Independence and natural law as given by God. Followed up by accusing ‘us’ of ‘blaming the other guy’, persecuting LBGT’ers and so on …

    Maybe go back over to the Conservative top column/last comment and re-read d.a.n’s 5 point factoids re the dims dismal history. Then, try thinking about it …

    Folks came to this country in search of religious freedom. They found it and all was good for several centuries following.

    The Church is largely to blame for the turn to secular socialism. Charity begins at home, in the Church.

    But, unfettered immigration has done a lot to deliver us to where we are today. People came by the millions to pursue economic gain and a more free lifestyle. They voted for the same.

    Very good points d.a.n. The dismal dims really are despicable and deserve all the crap we can heap on them, IMO.

    Does Planned Parenthood pay taxes, j2t2? Or do they receive $500 million dollars a year in government funding? I don’t see you complaining about Planned Parenthood not paying taxes.

    • (2) by Democrats who sought to continue slavery (source: www.britannica.com/topic/Democratic-Party),

    Ha ha! Now, j2t2 wants to discuss voter fraud.

    This report verifies voter fraud by 81% of Democrats, and 19% of Republicans (from Heritage.org voter fraud database (1979 to present): heritage.org/voterfraud).

    HHMMmmmm … none of them were found to be Russians.
    However, IF you always thought most voter fraud was by Democrats, you are correct.
    This report is ample proof that most voter fraud is by Democrats.
    There was only one case of voter suppresison by a Democrat, against 200 Republican voters.

    Here’s evidence of illegal immigrants voting in U.S. elections, and other voter fraud.

    And a year-long investigation (2018-to-2019) involving the Texas Department of Public Safety revealed that 95,000 non-citizens are registered to vote in Texas, and that 58,000 non-citizens voted in one or more elections in Texas (from 1996 to 2018; an average of 2,636 votes per year; probably not enough to change an election, except for very close elections).

    And j2t2 (and similar ilk) considers the following to be voter suppression:

    • (1) must show some form of ID (to prove eligibility to vote, and to prevent voting more than once);
    • (2) must be alive (i.e. not deceased);
    • (3) must not vote more than once per election;
    • (4) must be a U.S. Citizen
    And Stacey Abrams (who gave the Democrat response to the SOTU in FEB-2019) stated in a PBS interview on 11-JAN-2019 that she “would not oppose” allowing non-citizens to vote in elections, and that she is also open to minors voting too.

I guess it must be just another case of picking and choosing what parts of the bible you use. Of course it makes you guys look even more hypocritical when you hide behind religious freedom and then ignore God’s word when it is not convenient.

    Royal the real national emergency link shows us conservatives don’t reject illegal behavior. Maybe what you mean is they reject illegal behavior when it suits them, like Trump and Putin’s bromance. But hey, nice diversion. Of course that went over D.’s head as he ignorantly wrote “Ha ha!

    Good luck with that. j2t2 does not care about laws, basic rights, basic freedoms, integrity, or the truth, because j2t2 is blinded by hatred for anyone who does not conform to j2t2’s twisted and depraved idea of the way things should be (as shown here: site2data.com/j2t2_wrote_1.html ).

    What j2t2 refuses to admit, or is unable to comprehend, is that illegal immigrants (who have violated no other laws aside from illegally trespassing the U.S. border) are not the villains.

    The true villains are the Democrats (and similar ilk) who:

    • (01) despicably pit U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants against each other for votes, by pandering to illegal immigrants for 30+ years, for more votes (via more representation in the House, via more U.S. House representatives, via apportionment of representatives (and more electoral votes, and more federal funding), based on population, based on the decennial CENSUS, which does NOT verify U.S. citizenship);
    • (02) are also fighting against a [x]citizenship check-box on decennial CENSUS;
    • (03) lie about level of crime by illegal immigrants, and refuse to report 2,000 homicides per year by criminal non-citizens (source: DHS, GAO, cis.org);
    • (04) lie about the cost of massive illegal (and legal) immigration (about $300 Billion per year in net losses; sources: www.washingtontimes.com ; www.youtube.com/watch?v=msGVs4lFDw4 );
    • (05) are calling for open borders;
    • (06) are calling to abolish I.C.E.;
    • (07) want another amnesty, like the shamnesty of 1986;
    • (08) refuse requirement for employers to use eVerify;
    • (09) want to give illegal immigrants drivers’ licenses, and also automatically register them to vote at the same time; and then Democrats ignore many tens of thousands of instances of voter fraud by illegal immigrants;
    • (10) want more mayors like Libby Schaaf, who warns illegal immigrants before an ICE raid to arrest illegal immigrants;
    • (11) want more sanctuary cities and states, where Democrats (and A.G. Xavier Becerra) passed sanctuary city and state laws that protect criminal non-citizens (e.g. an illegal immigrant, Garcia Zarate (already deported 5 times) can shoot and murder Kate Steinle, and be acquitted for that murder);
    • (12) want to abolish or restrict 2nd Amendment rights, and say it is worth it “even if it saves only ONE life”, but conveniently ignore 2,000 homicides per year by criminal non-citizens;
    The Democrats have not sunk so low since the Democrats:
    • (1) sought to continue slavery (source: www.britannica.com/topic/Democratic-Party),
    • (2) created the KKK (source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ku_Klux_Klan),
    • (3) created Jim Crow laws (source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Crow_laws),
    • (4) and imposed racial segregation (source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Democrats).
    Again, many thanks to j2t2 for being the gift that keeps on giving (j2t2 actually seems to believe his efforts are helping his party).

    j2t2, I think you’ve missed a class in your bible study group.

    Leviticus is speaking about a person who was invited into the home of the caregiver. The caregiver is obligated to protect his guest.

    Illegal immigration is people invading a person’s home and taking advantage of the hospitality he is stealing while he’s there.

    If you want to use something as a basis of an argument, you should at least know what you’re talking about.

    Here’s an interesting experiment.

    An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich; a great equalizer.

    The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan”. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A (substituting grades for dollars – something closer to home and more readily understood by all).

    After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.

    As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.

    The second test average was a D! No one was happy.

    When the third test rolled around, the average was an F.

    As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

    To their great surprise, all failed and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.

    It could not be any simpler than that.

    Royal Flush, that’s an excellent example.
    Some of us get it.
    Socialist/leftist extremists (like j2t2, phx8, and Ed O’hrealy) will never understand it.
    Those three are probably already on the dole.

    Cheater Category #1 and #2:

    • Cheater Extreme #1: One extreme wants regressive taxation, unfettered capitalism, they love monopolies, and they want the freedom to explore and wallow in almost every manifestation of unchecked greed (e.g. rampant greed that led to a mortgage crisis from 2005-to-2009 and up to 10,000 foreclosures per day).

    • Cheater Extreme #2: The other extreme wants a nanny-state, that will wipe their lazy butts for them; where politicians lure citizens into being increasingly dependent on the government; with massive cradle-to-grave government programs (which are usually severely mismanaged; e.g. $70 Billion per year in Medicare fraud; $Trillions borrowed from Social Security; etc.) that nurture a sense of entitlement and dependency on government; wants to grow government ever larger (despite the already current nightmare proportions); rewards failure and laziness; tries to disguise their envy and jealousy as demands for equality; and perpetuates the myth that many things should be free, and that we can somehow all live at the expense of everyone else.
    j2t2, phx8, and Ed O’hrealy epitomize Extreme#2.

    D., the hatred is getting to you, so much paranoia, so much fear. Time to get back on your meds. The title of this thread is “We need a national crisis, now”. The only idiotic thing here is your response to my link. Well….and your arguing with yourself. You know you don’t have to respond to everything I post, especially when you can’t think of anything intelligent to say…like your last comment. I suspicion you feel the need to post something whenever I post, especially after the whole test test thing. IS this part of your propaganda training kicking in? Goebbels would be so proud.

    It is sad that the real national emergencies, but instead we have to watch as Trump and his nationalist populist followers create faux national emergencies to benefit the Trump re-election campaign.

    Meanwhile our vets get no coverage and our commander in chief goes and plays golf or is hanging out watching Faux News on TV plotting his next campaign.

    You do know Trump donates his pay to the VA, don’t you?

    From your link…

    , but President Trump has nonetheless stayed true to his word and handed over a check representing his presidential salary every three months.
    Trump continued this tradition in 2018, donating his first-quarter salary to the Department of Veterans Affairs, a sum which then-Acting VA Secretary Robert Wilkie said had been earmarked for “caregiver support in the form of mental health and peer support programs, financial aid, education training, and research.”

    Yea, j2t2, I’m pretty sure.

    j2t2’s hypocrisy knows no bounds, because it was the Democrats that voted against the right for veterans to seek healthcare via private doctors, when the VA was so incompetent that it was unable to see patients after many months or years of waiting for an appointment. Democrats are unable to comprehend the inherent problems with most government-run programs (i.e. no competition or accountability). Under Obama, the VA had deadly secret waiting lists for veterans; The Secretary of Veterans Affairs, General Eric Shinseki, voluntarily resigned (with pension).

    “Democrats balked, as almost all of them voted against the bill [to allow veterans to seek healthcare outside the VA after excessive wait times for an appointment]. As a result, it failed in a 219-186 vote, far short of the two-thirds majority needed.” (source: www.washingtonexaminer.com/house-rejects-2-billion-in-new-funding-for-vas-healthcare-choice-program).

    Again, many thanks to j2t2 for being the gift that keeps on giving.

    Snopes.com reported - “What’s True:
    President Trump has so far donated his whole presidential salary to various agencies” [i.e. the National Park Service, the Department of Education, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Transportation, and the Department of Veterans Affairs].

    Therefore, Weary Willie’s statement is 100% true.

    Weary Willie wrote: You [j2t2] do know Trump donates his pay to the VA, don’t you?

    And, again, j2t2 is wrong.

    Evidently, j2t2 is either trying to spread lies, or j2t2 is simply an unable to comprehend the truth about anything that doesn’t fit his depraved socialist/leftist extremism, and quickly glomps onto the most convenient Fake News that satisfies his depraved motives. j2t2 does not care how many times he is repeatedly proved wrong, and this is yet another lie to add to the long and growing list of j2t2 lies and j2t2’s nasty, racist, vulgar, and hateful comments over many years.

    D., the Dems did the right thing by voting against privatizing the VA. Every dollar that goes to the private sector is a dollar the VA can’t use to help veterans within the VA. The conservative ideology that causes this deterioration in the VA system is the root problem.

    The problem with government ran programs is the conservative Congress under-funding the VA. Being at war for the past several decades along with the increasing costs of healthcare has also taken it’s toll.

    The only place in the first world where a government has problems in healthcare is the USA. It is due to conservatives deliberately attacking, under-funding and attempting to privatize the system. Just like the did with the ACA or Trumpcare as it is now. If y’all would just stop trying to prove out our wrong headed ideology we wouldn’t have these problems.

    j2t2 thinks the solution to every problem is another government-run program, despite the overwhelming evidence that government-run programs are vastly less efficient, and fraught with massive incompetence, fraud, and corruption.

    Consider how ridiculous $70 Billion per year in Medicare fraud is. That’s only the tip of the iceberg, when it comes to waste and fraud in most (if not all) government-run programs.

    we must confront the dark history of slavery
    We did that in 1861
    and government-sanctioned discrimination in this country that has had many consequences,

    We did that in 1964

    including undermining the ability of black families to build wealth in America for generations.

    The Democratic party did this with welfare and abortion, so I guess it should be the Democratic party that forks out the reparations.

    Why do any illegal immigrants from Central America, now in Mexico, need to claim asylum in the U.S., when Mexico has already granted them work visas and/or the right to stay in Mexico?
    Is Mexico deporting any illegal immigrants from Central America?

    It’s hard. The spam is from random email addresses. We can block one just to have another take it’s place. All of them are probably from one person, but it’s impossible to stop them unless we start blocking emails until he runs out and gets tired of creating new ones.

    One way to combat it would be to attach an I am not a robot question to a first time commentator and use an email verification link to verify the address.

    Weary Willie, Yes, I completely understand now hard it is to prevent. Hence, it can only be deleted manually.
    Even with an email hand-shake, they would have lots of email addresses to use. Many sites battle this daily. Some have gone to cumbersome methods, that not only prove you are a human, but are very time consuming. For example, some will ask you to click on all of a set of photos that may contain traffic signs, or sidewalks, or cars. Humans can still do that, so it only slows them down.

    One thing that can be done, which costs them (for each domain-name created) is to report them to their Registrar.

    For example:
    www.whois.com/whois/www.hindverse.com/ is Registered at GoDaddy.com, LLC

    You can see the Registrar for any domain via:

    www.whois.com/whois/Specify_Domain_Name_Here.EXT

    For example: www.whois.com/whois/hindverse.com
    Which shows the following below.

    Send an email about abuse to: email@godaddy.com for domain-name hindverse.com

    Accuse them of spamming and/or pornography, and GoDaddy will suspend their account.

    Most of these a-holes are in India.
    I get 2 or 3 telephone calls every week from scammer a-hole in India, pretending to be from Microsoft Support.
    I also get 1 or 2 calls per month from scammer a-holes in India pretending to be from the IRS (and threatening to arrest me).
    Sometimes I play along for quite a while, just to see how angry I can make them. For example, keep saying “What?” like you don’t understand them. Ask them to repeat what they said. Ask them to call back at a certain time (which they will do sometimes). Tell them your computer crashed and you have to reboot. Make them think you hung up or set the phone down for a moment. Ask them to wait a moment while you set the phone down for a while, and then come back later. : )

    Appreciate the link d.a.n. What with the ‘fake news’, ‘communist news network’, scamming and spamming this digital world is near dangerous. Bad enough above board - - I just ordered a bathtub and as I was about to close I saw where it was being delivered to Norfolk, Va. some 500 mi from me. Thankfully, I caught it and had it changed.

    And, this six trafficking President Trump has been protesting about - child prostitution and so on - - - seems unreal but its all around us. The world is sending us their worst in many cases and depending on Trump to ‘fix it’. Does he have his hands full?

    However, the IP address of posts by Ed O’hrealy could be compared with the spam posts to see if they are the same (or similar).
