First off, let’s talk strategy. Given that the left has been screaming Racism against the President since the beginning of his candidacy, that attack rings hollow. Given that corporate CEO’s who begged for DACA to be retained, just the week prior ran away from the President’s advisory committees over the false Charlottesville Canard. Finally, given the behavior of immigrant’s rights activists and their willing lackeys in the media echoing the racism charge… they all combined to make the decision easy as the President lost nothing from undoing DACA

Even at that, the final decision by the President to put DACA on a 6 month timeline to expire was merciful and reasonable. The President put the onus on Congress to do the job. The original DACA was unconstitutional as it was an executive action by the President that was designed to be an end-around congress. The President himself laid out an extremely strong case for his decision:

“As President, my highest duty is to defend the American people and the Constitution of the United States of America,” the statement begins. “At the same time, I do not favor punishing children, most of whom are now adults, for the actions of their parents. But we must also recognize that we are nation of opportunity because we are a nation of laws.”

The fundamental problem with Obama’s DACA order is that it is simply an executive order. Far-reaching decisions about who is and isn’t a citizen must be determined by the legislative branch.

“The legislative branch, not the executive branch, writes these laws — this is the bedrock of our Constitutional system, which I took a solemn oath to preserve, protect, and defend,” Trump continues. “In June of 2012, President Obama bypassed Congress to give work permits, social security numbers, and federal benefits to approximately 800,000 illegal immigrants currently between the ages of 15 and 36. The typical recipients of this executive amnesty, known as DACA, are in their twenties. Legislation offering these same benefits had been introduced in Congress on numerous occasions and rejected each time.”

So there you have it.

Back to DACA, it was a program rife with fraud.

O’Brien said that the vast majority of the 800,000 illegal immigrants now in DACA have never been interviewed by any representative of the U.S. government, either in person on over the phone.

Then there is this:

Vaughan pointed out that 5,000 illegal immigrants who were being held in detention centers and who were on track for deportation at the time DACA took effect were released and granted DACA status.

“They were considered a public safety threat,” she said. “Even under the Obama administration, they were being detained.”

Said O’Brien: “I personally witnessed an alarming number of people who had gang affiliations applying for this program.”

Most of them, he said, were approved.

Now that groups like MS-13 are being hunted, it puts this in stark relief.

There is more – a bizarre quirk in the law was covered up by Obama, and exposed by the Trump Administration:

The House and Senate Judiciary Committees revealed that more than 45,000 DACA recipients were approved for “advance parole,” which is permission to leave and reenter the U.S. despite not being in permanent legal status here.

The loophole is known among immigration activists, and public colleges in California were urged to use it to help their illegal immigrant students here under the DACA program to gain legal status.

The California-Mexico Studies Center actually advertises just such a program, charging thousands of dollars to give Dreamers a chance to travel south to Mexico to qualify for advance parole. Part of the fees the program collects help pay for “legal advice and filing assistance” in obtaining advance parole.

Predictably, democrats sued to reinstate the unconstitutional executive order, citing… you guessed it…

In a lawsuit filed in federal court in Brooklyn, New York and other states said DACA has provided important humanitarian protection for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants.

The states said that since 78 percent of DACA recipients are Mexican, revoking the policy is proof of the president’s antipathy toward Mexico, which they trace back to his campaign statements.

Got it? Trump said mean things, therefore you have to side with us. That rationale was used in the travel ban court cases. While people are being distracted by the race card, note that if the Judges set a legal precedent that campaign speech can be used to invalidate laws, then imagine the rationale that can be used to muzzle the Church or Conservatives in general.

Once again, President Trump was willing to take the savaging from the left media and the democrats to provide leadership. This caused the Speaker of the House to make bold statements about how Congress will fix DACA but any fix would be tied to border security:

P(aul)R(yan): That’s exactly my position. Look, here’s the point I keep making on this, is this DACA dilemma that we are experiencing here, why do we have it? It is a symptom of a bigger problem. And the bigger problem is we do not have control of our borders. And because we do not have control of our borders, we have this problem. So it’s just reasonable and natural that we should address the root cause of this problem, lack of control of our borders, and get border security, interior enforcement, the things that you need to do to secure your borders so that you don’t have a DACA problem 10 years from now. So we want to address the cause and the effect, the symptom and the root cause of the problem. And that is only reasonable. And that is what our point is. And so there is a compromise to be had here, and that’s what this compromise looks like, in my mind.

GB: And so there will not be a stand-alone Dream Act coming out of the House?

PR: That’s right…We cannot — because we — because we won’t fix the problem. If we just rubber-stamp a standalone Dream Act, then we’re going to have another Dream Act that we’re going to need in 10 years from now.

President Trump’s leadership is forcing Republican Leadership to plant their flag in the ground. Polls, even biased media polls show 60-70% support for various border / immigration measures. Nothing the President is doing is unpopular. This is why the left smear machine has to go in to overdrive in an attempt to stop him.

Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes is defending her office against a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Rights Union, a conservative legal group that contends there are more voters registered on Broward’s rolls than there are eligible voters in the county.

Those rolls are said to be inflated with not only noncitizens and felons, but also other ineligible people who have voted illegally.

On July 31, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel newspaper reported that, in court, “Snipes acknowledged the processes her office [has] been using aren’t perfect and that some noncitizens and felons have voted despite not being eligible—especially right before major elections, when groups are actively registering new voters.”

The Daily Signal covered this little gem ignored by the national media. Broward County is a key county to the democrats and is also critical to their hopes of winning the state of Florida.

Broward County’s problems reportedly included voter registration lists with 130-year-old voters (or would-be voters, if they were living), felons, duplicate registrations, and commercial addresses listed as residential addresses.

Stories have been trickling out of documented irregularities in registrations and voting. This is only happening because President Trump is the President. The odds that Mr. Trump beat in order to get elected included overcoming this as well.

I saw this article about Hillary Clinton’s Lawyer fighting a lawsuit challenging New Hampshire’s Voter ID Law. Despite the fact that 65-70% of Americans support Voter ID as a measure to ensure election integrity, there have been a slew of lawsuits from the left trying to forestall those laws.

Previous efforts launched against voter ID laws were backed by millions from liberal billionaire George Soros, who has a personal goal of enlarging the electorate by 10 million people by 2018, as documents leaked last year show.

The League of Woman Voters and three individuals are suing the state of New Hampshire in an attempt to block a law on voter registration that includes requirements such as providing a driver’s license to prove an individual’s primary residence is in the state and will be living in the state for a substantial time.

The lawsuit is supported by Priorities USA, the largest liberal super political action committee that backed Clinton’s campaign. Priorities received $9.5 million from Soros throughout the 2016 election cycle.

Marc Elias, a partner at the Washington, D.C.-based law firm Perkins Coie and Clinton’s former top campaign lawyer, is listed as an attorney on the New Hampshire lawsuit. Elias joined the board of Priorities earlier this year when the group absorbed Every Vote Counts, a nonprofit created by Clinton allies to mobilize African American and Latino voters. The group is in the process of building a “one-stop inventory” on voting measures that will be shared with other liberal groups.

Note that Wisconsin implemented a voter ID Law that stood up in court and it went Republican for the first time since 1988. I’ve read the stories of people being bussed in from Illinois to same day register, which brings us to New Hampshire.

On election day, I spoke to someone in Trump’s operation back east. They told me that they had numerous reports of people with Massachusetts license plates same-day registering and voting in New Hampshire. It appears that the stories were real.

⦁ 6,540 people registered and voted on Nov. 8, based on presenting out-of-state licenses.

⦁ As of Aug. 30, about 15 percent (1,014 of the voters) had been issued New Hampshire driver’s licenses.

⦁ Οf the remaining 5,526, barely more than 200 (3.3 percent) had registered a motor vehicle in New Hampshire.

New Hampshire law gives drivers 60 days upon establishing residence to obtain a state license.

But more than 80 percent of voters who registered on Nov. 8 using out-of-state driver’s licenses, or 5,313 of them, neither had a state license nor registered a motor vehicle almost 10 months later.

Double voting is illegal, and 196 people are being investigated for casting ballots in New Hampshire and in other states.

In the presidential race, Democrat Hillary Clinton defeated Republican Donald Trump in New Hampshire by 2,736 votes. In an even tighter race, for the Granite State’s U.S. Senate seat, Democratic challenger Maggie Hassan defeated incumbent Republican Kelly Ayotte by 1,017 votes.

President Trump alluded in February that he lost New Hampshire and former GOP Senator Kelly Ayotte lost due to voter fraud.

You tell me what happened?

When you talk about culture war, there is a reason why the left and their willing accomplices in the media have bet the ranch on trying to smear President Trump as a racist in an attempt to inflame and divide the country further.

However, as the President stays steadfast, sticking to his guns… more is being revealed:

Black Lives Matter leaders continue to speak out with their vile anti-white hatred. The national media accused the Texas Secretary of State as turning down disaster aid allegedly asking people to pray for Texas instead. After significant push back the story was still pushed by the left and continued to be re-tweeted and shared even after the government entities involved intervened with the truth.

As the hate is being spread by the left – two leading anti-trump groups are repeating North Korean talking points. A black lives matter activist that organized a protest that led to the death of 5 officers was recently arrested for felony theft. Public  School Teachers also got burned for their role being members of a violent ANTIFA group as well.

The proliferation of evidence that has come out in the wake of the savaging of the President after Charlottesville has shown that the left have also bet the ranch of violence and disruption in order to advance their agenda. This is backfiring as again, Democrat Party leaders have been forced to come out in opposition to ANTIFA.

The left is so far out in their hatred that they also went berzerk on Steve Harvey for meeting with President Trump and then for lending his name and talent to assist with inner-city housing. Harvey, to his credit is going forward on his commitment to work with Dr. Ben Carson (also black) on HUD-related projects.

One of the top ways the left have forced their agenda on society are Judges that rule by decree that things that never existed before cases in their court are now law. The democrats changed the filibuster rules in 2014 in order to get several Obama appointees through the process and now that they are in the minority, are abusing tradition in order to stop nominees. Al Franken has blue-slipped a nominee because of his fear that Judge would be like Scalia. Note, this is not about qualifications, but rather it is ideological.

Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley of Oregon are doing the same for the same reasons to another nominee.

In addition, tech firms are conspiring with the Southern Poverty Law Center – a far left group – to shut conservative groups down on the internet. Basically the SPLC “declares” a group a hate group and then the tech firms use that as an excuse to shut their accounts down. In the linked story the Ruth Institute had their online payment processing company stop their service as a result of the designation.

The leadership of the Democrat Party have taken some of their opposition right out in to the open, as Democrat Senators have been attacking judicial nominees for their faith. This suggests that the President has been appointing solid social conservatives to the federal bench and in addition, people of faith.

Click here and see for yourself the direct attack US Senator Dianne Feinstein made related to the Catholic Faith of a Nominee. The Washington Free Beacon wrote a pretty thorough piece about the democrat efforts to forestall judicial nominees that you should read as well.

The evidence of where society stands is borne out in this story about Starbucks firing their CEO after his bombastic comments telling conservatives they were not welcome at Starbucks. It appears that their sales have suffered a precipitous decline and the new CEO is basically begging people to come back. After rubbing people’s faces in protests by spoiled, entitled NFL superstars against the National Anthem, the NFL is paying a severe ratings price. ESPN has been hemorrhaging subscribers with their politically correct antics. Real America is speaking out and the President is listening to them, not the screams of the left and their friends in the Media.

So while people in the faith community get distracted by the hyperbolae, there is this: Remember the baker in Colorado, Masterpiece cakes? Yes, his case has gone to the Supreme Court because lower courts wanted to make an example of this Christian man for not baking a cake for a gay wedding. One of the biggest complaints about George W Bush’s administration is that they did not aggressively defend the church. The Obama admin was just the opposite, they went after people of faith under the guise of fairness and diversity. Enter the Trump Admin

Phillips violated the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act after he refused to make a cake for the wedding of Charlie Craig and David Mullins in 2012. Craig and Mullins filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, which ruled Phillips violated the state’s anti-discrimination law, a decision upheld by an appeals court. Colorado’s Supreme Court declined to take the case. The case, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, was appealed to the Supreme Court, and Trump’s DOJ announced on Thursday that it had filed a brief on Phillips’ behalf.

So while some get fixated on false charges of Racism and the like, President Trump is defending the Church and its’ right have an opinion.

There is quite a bit more going on, stay tuned for more…

Some in the Media are taking notice. Some in the media appear to understand that the Russia / Racism obsession is either not working or is backfiring.

Stories like this one are starting to appear. The Trump Admin has seen two quarters of 3% growth. This never happened during the obama administration. While some would dismiss this as obama’s credit, note that the growth has occurred as companies are deciding to stay and invest in America and are making hiring decisions based on that. The regulatory environment under Obama was so severe that eliminating regulations seems to be what is powering the economy.

What else? Well, Trump pulled out of the Paris climate change deal, which as we noted in this space is a yuuuge win for the economy.

The EPA, meanwhile, is dismantling Obama’s coal-killing, growth-choking Clean Power Plan, and draining the heavy-handed Waters of the United States rule. When a veteran EPA official resigned this week, she complained in a letter to her former colleagues that “the new EPA Administrator already has repeals of 30 rules under consideration,” which the New York Times described as “a regulatory rollback larger in scope than any other over so short a time in the agency’s 47-year history.”

Trump promised to kill two regulations for every new one enacted, but in his first six months the ratio was 16-to-1.

Trump also approved the Keystone XL and other pipeline projects held up by Obama. He’s also rolled back a ban on coal mining on public lands.

With American companies being told that the boot of government is being lifted off of their necks, they are responding. When the President had no control of is the cowardice of the CEO’s who all ran and hid at the first sign of Charlottesville Trouble. In fact, the behavior of the CEO’s is reinforcing President Trump’s image as a populist!

The Media still believe they are relevant, so they continue to lie, distort and spin thinking it will influence opinion.

Did you know that the Environmental Protection Agency is at the lowest staffing levels since Ronald Reagan? (30 years ago)

Did you know that bureaucrats are sweating President Trump’s trade negotiating style? NAFTA is on the table, the TPP has been withdrawn from and the President is putting the hammer on China over their wonton violation of copyright. You’d think from the Media coverage of the Trump administration that he was getting nowhere fast with everyone.

The president also ordered an investigation into China’s unfair trade practices and theft of U.S. intellectual property.

The administration cracked down on dumping and slapped punitive tariffs on products from scores of countries, including aluminum foil from China, paper from Canada, biodiesel from Argentina and Indonesia, and silicon metal from Australia, Brazil and Kazakhstan — and that was just in August.

This sort of stuff is forcing a reaction in the global community and the President is getting things done on an international scale. For the first time in anyone’s memory, China and India are facing scrutiny over their tactics of stealing trademarks and flooding the market with items in order to bankrupt competitors.

As a lead in to the next post about Social Issues – President Trump rolled back some seriously onerous rules about government mandated diversity. (There is that word of division again)

The Trump administration blocked Obama-era rules that would have saddled employers with hundreds of millions of dollars in compliance costs and increased paperwork loads by millions of hours each year.

The Office of Management and Budget instructed the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to shelve a rule change that would have required employers to submit 20 times as much data to the agency as previously required. The Obama administration called for the new standards, which would have affected 61,000 American companies with more than 100 workers and federal contractors with more than 50 workers, to demonstrate his commitment to closing the much-disputed “gender wage gap.” Obama’s EEOC called for businesses to provide 3,660 different data points about each employee and their pay structure, up from the 188 points.

The Trump administration is applying common sense to a slew of emotionally based regulations based on a liberal grab bag of wishes that are not factually based. AS you will see coming up, the Trump administration is tackling a slew of social issues even while some of the right are accusing the administration of not being conservative enough!

The Media, The Democrats and The Left can not allow unity.

When unity exists, the need for Government decreases as charity and community take over. Many in the faith community talk about unity and do not understand that the mouth that talks about unity can not be the same mouth that talks about diversity. In modern parlance, diversity is a celebration of one’s difference from others.

Take the Charlottesville situation, where President Trump said there are good people on both sides. He was savaged for this comment as opportunists ceased on the comment as tacit support for the KKK – while conveniently ignoring Black Lives Matter Racists or ANTIFA left-wing cowards that assault people physically and destroy property while hiding behind masks.

After a concerted media effort that even drew in criticism from local pastors, Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney and the like, ANTIFA’s own actions set fire to them all. Nancy Pelosi and Paul Ryan were forced to come out of their bunkers to condem ANTIFA – a tacit admission they were dead wrong for attacking the president over his Charlottesville response.

Leaders say and do the right things, knowing full well they will get attacked.

Then Cyclones happen.

See the photos? President Trump had all over government at the ready to minimize the response time after Harvey hit Texas and the same is happening as Irma is lashing Florida as I type this.

You see, racists can’t do stuff like this. This is why I gauge people’s actions, not off-the-cuff remarks that media types saddle up on. This is why I look at groups like World Relief Sacramento for example, who have axes to grind over their loss of funding and ignore them when their officers issue press releases or come on to podcasts with carefully worded rebukes. It appears that America did too, as the President’s approval numbers went up in the wake of Charlottesville and the stories coming out of Charlottesville show that the leftist mayor and governor took deliberate actions to empower the leftists that the media and trump critics tried to cover for.

You can’t lie about the response to a disaster.

You can’t fake it when people who were 85-90% likely to have supported Hillary Clinton want a selfie with the President. If they really believed he hated them for being black would they want to be anywhere near him?

Everywhere, the President is getting accolades for his leadership in the wake of Harvey and in the midst of Irma, including from former Florida Governor Jeb Bush who dislikes President Trump intensely.

You see, Black Americans are getting disproportionately affected by the hurricane. About 1/3 of the victims are Black while Black Americans represent 14% of the total US population. Guess what, Black Americans support immigration enforcement as well because they know whose jobs are being taken and cheapened by illegal immigration.

I have also noticed a few other things from those that would divide America. #1 See that black guy behind President Trump in the Blue Shirt? That is Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson. Yup, a former opponent to President Trump (and someone I worked for) and a black man in a serious position of power in the country, yet the media and Black Lives Matter are awfully quiet about his role in America, aren’t they?

I bet you did not know that President Trump’s new surgeon general Dr. Jerome Adams is also black. There were some media stories, but little if any fanfare. Where is Black Lives Matter with a celebration of this?

If you’re reading this blog and you are not political – but rather, you have a day job and are interested in politics as an aside, there are some lessons here:

Hyperbolae is done for a reason, usually it is to antagonize people, dehumanize them, divide them or marginalize them in order to gain political advantage. This leads me all the way back to my opening comment. The American Left does not want unity.

Yet, here is the alleged racist, white nationalist President Trump helping provide hope and comfort to brown people whose lives have been wrecked by the Cyclones that have hit the Southern US.

President Trump is indeed a loudmouth, he says mean things to get people’s attention, he is a bull in the china shop – but he is not from the entitled, elitist class as President’s Bush, Clinton or Obama were from. This means his style makes a deep emotional connection with people, many of whom will never tell a pollster that they are supporting him. His clear departure from the false veneer of statesmanship reassures people they really have elected one of their own as their leader.

When called upon to provide leadership and stability for a nation – he has done just that. The images of the President will be indelible in the minds of Americans, much more so than the hysteria of the left ever will be.

So, when you have an emotional reaction to try and criticize the President, a la Charlottesville… think it through because President Trump has proven to be pretty wise and smart about things including government as you will see in a few upcoming posts.
