Let the old Patriots come forward, and instead of secretly wrapping up their opinions within their own breasts, let them lift up the voice like a trumpet, and show this people their folly and… impending danger.” — James Warren (1726–1808) President of the Massachusetts Provincial Congress, Paymaster General of the Continental Army
My allegiance, as my readers are well aware of, will always be with Mr. Trump. I cannot fathom what our country would become with Hillary as President. She has already stated she would allow 550% more Islamic refugees into our country, as well as her 100-day amnesty for those who are already here illegally, whether they are criminals or not. For 30 years we have heard 11 to 12 million illegals are in our country. In fact, the numbers are more likely 50 to 60 million. Donald Trump must win the election, or our nation is lost.
Mr. Trump is a planner, tactically and strategically. There are rumors that early on he met with two of the best constitutional professors in the country. Last year, he met with Scalia about executive power, orders, and right to revoke and repeal unconstitutionally mandated agencies with power exceeding that of legislative branch. Many believe Mr. Trump has a master plan that was formulated long before he announced his candidacy, and he’s following that plan to a “T.”
The Insane Media
America’s future is hanging by a thread, and we are at the tilting point of sliding into a third world country led by dictators. Our people are angry, they’re afraid, and they do not like what has happened in the last 50 years, much less the deterioration during Obama’s dictatorial reign.
Yet, the likes of Glenn Beck, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, and other neo-cons are not thinking of the American people, our children, or grandchildren’s futures. They are thinking of their globalist agenda, and how Mr. Trump would destroy those dreams. All Ted Cruz can conjure up in his self-aggrandizing mind is the 2020 race, and that he wants to be the next illegal alien to hold the office of president.
Never Trumpsters Foaming at the Mouth
Cruz lost the respect of many supporters at the RNC Convention when he didn’t think of our country and her future, but only of his own self-pride. Many finally saw him as a phony Christian when he failed to stand tall and endorse Trump for the good of the nation, and instead showed himself for what he really is…a prideful, bitter, and jealous man who would rather have Hillary in the White House than Mr. Trump.
Today, they believe they have a reason to crawl out of their hidey holes and attack Donald Trump because they think he’s flip-flopping on immigration, but is he?
We must remember this. Trump has always said that if you are here illegally, you will have to leave the country and then get back in line to become a citizen. That means no amnesty and no legalization for people who have come here illegally. Chris Christie, Reince Priebus and Dr. Ben Carson have echoed Trump’s stance.
Sean Hannity Town Hall with Trump
Here is part of the conversation in Austin, Texas with Sean Hannity during part Two of their Town Hall.
Hannity says, “This is going to be a big issue. You’re not a criminal alien, you’ve committed no crimes, but you didn’t respect our laws and sovereignty. You also seem to be indicating there might be something other than ‘they have to go back.’ Am I reading that right?”
Trump states, “Look, we have to follow the laws of our country. We have to follow the laws! Now, can we be, and I’ll ask the audience…you have somebody who is terrific, who has been here a long time (Hannity says 20 years), long court proceeding, long everything, okay, in other words, to get them out. (He then asks the audience) Can we go through a process, or do they have to get out? Tell me.
When he restated the question and asked the audience, there was more applause when Trump asked again if these people should be given a chance.
Of course this echoes not only the empathy of the American people, but also of Mr. Trump. But are they right or are they sanctioning lawbreaking and theft?
Hannity says to Mr. Trump, “Initially you said they all must go, but you’re now saying we might give people like this a chance, but there’s no citizenship.”
Trump echoes, “No Citizenship. And let’s go a step further, they’ll pay back taxes, and they will have to pay taxes, there’s no amnesty, but we work with them. I’ve had very strong people come up to me, really great, great people and they’ll say to me, ‘Mr. Trump, I really love you, but to take a person who has been here for 15 or 20 years and throw them and the family out, it’s so tough Mr. Trump,’ and I have it all the time. It’s a very, very hard thing.”
No, it’s not a hard thing Mr. Trump. They are law breakers and tax dollar thieves. Your base has supported you because of your strong stance. Whatever support from Latinos you might gain is minor compared to what you could lose for changing your stance. The American taxpayer simply cannot keep sanctioning lawbreakers and theft. These illegals are bleeding our citizens of their hard earned dollars, and they are receiving far more than our military veterans receive.
The Dangers of Amnesty for Any Group
If there is any kind of amnesty for any portion of these illegals which says, “you can stay, but you can’t vote and you can’t become a citizen,” it is not going to be permanent, because any legislature can come along later and change all that. It would be within the legislative power. The Democrats will do it when they get back in power, and the Republicans could as well, and then we would have a situation just like they want, more democrat votes, more anti-western culture.
Marco Rubio’s Gang of Eight
Remember Marco Rubio? He said exactly the same thing about illegals who have resided in our country for a long time and appear to be good members of society. Rubio’s “Gang of Eight” amnesty with the likes of Illinois Democrat Dick Durbin, and New York Democrat, Chuck Schumer, was plainly an easy “path to citizenship.” Their Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill was nothing more than repackaged amnesty.
Fiscal Burden of Illegals to Taxpayers
Here are the costs of illegal aliens to the American Taxpayer, and these are probably low. Link
$113 Billion per year for illegals
42.2 Billion on education
10.8 Billion on medical care
9.6 Billion on general expenses
8.7 Billion on justice expenditures
5.3 Billion on welfare related costs
One child of an illegal alien family costs American taxpayers $12,000 a year. How do we recoup that loss from a family who has been here 15 or 20 years and had four or five children? Why should they be allowed to remain in our country when they’ve not only broken our laws, but have stolen so many of our tax dollars?
Here are the percentages of federal convictions of illegal immigration from the US sentencing commission:
18% in drug trafficking
30% in kidnapping/hostage taking
75% drug possession
10% money laundering
21% of national defense
5% of murder
The Cause of the Immigration Conflict
Again, the rage on all the news channels is Trump’s so-called flip-flop on immigration. And guess who started this mess? None other than Trump’s new Campaign Manager, Kellyanne Conway.
One would think by now, she’d figure out you don’t go on programs headed by the leftist talking heads, but she did, and she’s made several huge faux pas regarding Trump’s stand on immigration, or did she? Going on TV programs with her suggestive generalities has been extremely damaging, and has started this avalanche of attacks on Trump.
Here’s what she said, “What he supports…is making sure that we enforce the law, that we are respectful of those Americans who are looking for well-paying jobs and that we are fair and humane for those who live among us in this country,” she said. “As the weeks unfold… he will lay out the specifics of that plan that he would implement as president of the United States.”
When she was pressed on whether that plan would include a deportation force, as Trump had stated in the past, Conway replied, “To be determined.” Well, yes, it will be determined, and if it is determined improperly via Kellyanne Conway’s guidance, there will be trouble in River City.
I will never abandon Trump because of the huge Islamic threat that only Trump can overcome, but I do believe Conway’s so-called “softening” of Mr. Trump’s message is not in the best interests of America’s citizens, or for Mr. Trump.
Campaign Manager, Kellyanne Conway
Media Matters claims that the Trump Campaign is still paying Corey Lewandowski $20K per month, and that he is still an advisor to Mr. Trump. Inside sources have informed me that it was Lewandowski who suggested Conway as Campaign Manager.
Conway believes she now has complete control, that she is the media hound dog for Mr. Trump’s campaign, and that she’ll change him from what she likely considers unrefined and distasteful, into her form of polished candidate. I thought she was going to be the coordinator, not the spokesperson. What happened to that person?
Excuse me, Kellyanne, but I liked Mr. Trump just the way he was; he needs no refining; he speaks the truth as we speak it to our friends, he knows what has happened to our beloved country, and he knows what needs to be done.
Any changes you try to make to Donald J. Trump will only help Hillary Clinton into our White House again!
Back when neo-con, Paul Weyrich, had his NET TV show, Kellyanne Fitzpatrick and Frank Luntz were regulars, especially during campaigns. Both are pollsters. Kellyanne took the conservative side; Frank took the liberal side of polling numbers, but they were partners. Luntz is on Fox News as a pundit, and is utterly despicable, and he detests Trump. His former client was Rubio, and Kellyanne’s former client was Cruz.
Conway and Robert Mercer
Robert Mercer originally funded Ted Cruz with a $13.5 million PAC. Mercer put Kellyanne Conway in charge of the spending.
After Cruz’s failure to endorse Mr. Trump at the GOP convention, the Mercers issued a rare statement saying their support of Trump is rooted in their total opposition to Hillary. They are now using their monies to attack Clinton. Mercer put $2 million more into the super-PAC last month, and David Bossie is now marketing it to other donors as a way to fight the Democratic nominee without explicitly endorsing Trump. Its name: Defeat Crooked Hillary.
Mercer doesn’t bother me, other than the fact that Kellyanne was in charge of such a large chunk of funds for Cruz.
Conway and the Independent Women’s Forum
Kellyanne is on the board of the Independent Women’s Forum (IWF). It is a GOP establishment organization, full of neo-conservatives with various ties to the Council on Foreign Relations.
The organizations who fund them would hardly be approved by true constitutional conservatives, and some of the awards they give out have been to CFR members, like Condoleezza Rice.
IWF is funded by the Koch Brothers’ Claude R. Lambe Foundation, the Harry Bradley Foundation, and Richard Mellon Scaife’s Sarah Scaife Foundation. I’ve written about the globalist Koch brothers many times, as well as Richard Mellon (Chase Mellon Bank) Scaife, who was always pro-choice, and whose own mother used to have Margaret Sanger into her home every Sunday afternoon for tea. The Bradley Foundation has on its board, CFR member, Robert George along with former editor of the Trump hating National Review, George Will. The Joyce and Donald Rumsfeld Foundation have also funded IWF. Rumsfeld is also a CFR member.
Who Should Be Allowed to Stay
The only ones who should be allowed to stay are the children of illegals who were brought into America 20, 30, or even 40 years ago. If they are productive members of society, we cannot send them back because they only know America. They grew up here through no fault of their own.
Mr. Trump has stated that all criminal elements and gang members will be deported and this will be started the first day he takes office. He suggested law abiding illegals who have been here for 15 or 20 years, may be allowed to stay, but…
Mr. Trump, they’re not law abiding! They have come here illegally, and they steal from taxpayers! The cost is in the trillions! There has to be some retribution for breaking the law! Go back, and come in legally, just as you’ve continually stated. Truly, if people have crossed our border and sneaked into the United States, they have no right to be here.
Has Trump really changed his stance? As a pragmatic businessman, he says what he thinks to the people who are supporting him. He actually asked us what we think! Go back and listen to the Town Hall again. How often does that happen that any politician really gives a rat’s pidutti what we think? Trump is tough, fair, and humane, and he speaks his mind to us daily.
We must have Mr. Trump’s “America First” Policy on Immigration, on Trade, on Islamic Refugees, on the Bill of Rights, on Veterans, on health care, on everything that he has told us he stands for. That is the reason I support him, and my support will not waver.
