National Security: Border Wall for Protection of Life vs Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigration

National Security:

Border Wall for Protection of Life vs Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigration

President Donald Trump made a moral and emotional case for border security and the border wall, saying in his January 9 White House speech that people build walls to protect the people they love.

“Some have suggested a barrier is immoral,” Trump said in reference to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s comments about the wall being an “immorality.” Trump continued with his fairness argument:

Then why do wealthy politicians build walls, fences, and gates around their homes? They don’t build walls because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside. The only thing that is immoral is the politicians do nothing and continue to allow more innocent people to be so horribly victimized.

Trump Shines: Walls Not About Hate, ‘They Love the People on the Inside’

Border Wall Statistics,  Drug Trafficking Crisis

When Democrat leaders refused to listen, President Trump sent a letter to every member of Congress, detailing the border wall problem and solutions. President Trump is a man experienced in solving problems, instead of whining, lying, seeking power at the expense of the American people, and hate-mongering. The following graphics present the case for a border wall.

An incredible solution to building the border wall

Exclusive: Chuck Norris lauds promising legislation that would fully fund construction

Make El Chapo pay for it

Chuck Norris

I have written many articles over the years, but I have never written an article more important than this one. While Democrat and Republican leaders in Washington are polarized and in gridlock over how to pay for a wall on the U.S. southern border with Mexico, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is a Lone Ranger with a Tonto-sized idea riding into town to get the job done in a way that would cost taxpayers nothing at all.

Because I live in the border state of Texas, it has made this issue even more personal to me. I also have many black belts that live in Mexico that are hindered by this crisis to even be able to visit the U.S. legally in order to attend our annual United Fighting Arts Federation (UFAF) Convention in Las Vegas.

On Thursday, a press release went out from Sen. Cruz’s office that was titled: “Sen. Cruz Reintroduces EL CHAPO Act.”

EL CHAPO is the nickname (“Shorty”) for the infamous Mexican mafia kingpin who is the former leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel and was extradited to the U.S. to face criminal prosecution for numerous drug-related crimes, including conspiracy to commit murder and money laundering. He is presently on trial in New York for all these charges, where the son of the cartel’s co-founder just testified for hours against the drug lord.

EL CHAPO is also an acrostic for Sen. Cruz’s bill that stands for the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (EL CHAPO) Act. The full bill text may be viewed here.

The PR explained: “The bill would reserve any amounts forfeited to the U.S. Government as a result of the criminal prosecution of ‘El Chapo’ (formally named Joaquin Archivaldo Guzman Lorea) and other drug lords for border security assets and the completion of the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.”

That is why the U.S. government is presently pursuing the criminal forfeiture of more than $14 billion from El Chapo’s narcotic sales and other illicit profits.

So, does El Chapo have the money to fund our U.S. southern border wall?

Dolia Estevez, who covers Mexico’s billionaires, politics and U.S.-Mexico relations, wrote in Forbes: “The 33-page indictment against El Chapo, filed in 2016 at the U.S. Eastern District of New York, does not dissect the $14 billion. It simply says that upon conviction, the U.S. will seek forfeiture of any property or contractual rights derived from the continuing criminal enterprise, ‘including but not limited to at least approximately a sum of money equal to $14 billion in United States currency.’”

Border Wall Statistics, Border Patrol Victories

Heritage Foundation Report

@Heritage

 

.@CBP have seen a dramatic spike in illegal drugs at the southern border.

How bad is it? In 2018 they seized (or helped seize):

– 282,000 lbs of cocaine

– 248,000 lbs of meth

– 6,500 lbs of heroin

– 2,400 lbs of fentanyl—enough to kill every person in the United States.

These numbers highlight that the problem isn’t just with the illegal persons who are crossing the southern border but with the illegal drugs that are following the same path.

The Border Patrol agents are succeeding in executing a difficult job while dealing with a border that isn’t secured in the best possible way. President Trump is trying to change this.

Immigration in America; Immigration Caravan vs. Disease Control

“America is a welcoming country,” President Trump said from the Roosevelt Room of the White House. “We will not allow our generosity to be abused by those who would break our laws, defy our rules, violate our borders, [and] break into our country illegally.”

The True History of Immigration in America

Rush Limbaugh

CALLER: Thank you so much for taking my call. I was a twelfth grade American history teacher for 25 years and I finally had to leave because the revisionist history was becoming more than I could handle. I started writing my own classes, courses, because I couldn’t handle how they had revised American history. But the reason I called was the topic of immigration. Immigration, if it’s in the book, probably gets about one paragraph.

What most people don’t understand is when these millions of people came over through Ellis Island, we didn’t just open our arms and say, “Come on in,” the way the Democrats want to do now. These people were given a thorough examination by the ship, especially looking at their eyes. They take a device and flick up the upper eyelid, and if you had a disease called trachoma, you were automatically let go. They made you walk up and down steps to make sure you were strong and were not winded.

Now, once the ship doctor performed his examination, you were put on the ship and you were sent to Ellis Island, where they gave you a second examination doing the trachoma exam once again, walking up and down the steps. And if you didn’t make it, you were sent back. About 2% of the people were sent back. And the reason why it was so low is because the ship doctor really did a thorough exam. If you were sent back, the ship had to pay for your passage back to Europe, so they wanted to make sure. We did not want anyone that could not work, was not healthy, and was not strong.

CALLER: But we did not want people who would be on welfare. We did not want those people. We wanted only strong, healthy people. That’s been totally left out of history books, and I can’t tell you how much it frustrates me to listen to these Democrats talk about how wonderful we were when we welcomed everybody. Not true. I have a 9-year-old grandson, and I just shudder to think about the kind of history he’s gonna be learning. I’m giving him, for Christmas, one of your books.

RUSH: Oh, wow. Very wise.

Howard Zinn anti-American book

CALLER: Because I think, “Where’s he gonna get it?” He’s not gonna learn it from his own history books. They’re all revised. They give a paragraph maybe to Benjamin Franklin and —

RUSH: Well, try a paragraph to Abraham Lincoln! John Silber at Boston University way back in the nineties did a survey of the most popular high school history textbook and found one paragraph in reference to Abraham Lincoln. One paragraph! There were pages devoted to Bill Clinton, for example, in an American history book. The name that you want to know is Howard Zinn.

Howard Zinn, as a textbook writer, is a quasi-socialist-Marxist, and he somehow has finagled. The vast majority of textbooks purchased for use in American public schools have been written by this guy. But you know, you reminded me of something.

I really… I’m glad that you got through to remind us about Ellis Island. Not only, by the way, were they checking people’s health. They were determining whether or not people actually wanted to be Americans. It was a restrictive process. Now, we were a much newer and younger country then, and we had an entirely different attitude about immigration and growth, and it was required that immigrants assimilate, and it was required that they be healthy.

More A.F. Branco Cartoons at The Daily Torch.

We were not gonna open the borders to illness. We were not gonna expose the American people to things through accident or design. But more importantly, the immigrants who were allowed in had to demonstrate that they wanted to be Americans. They had to demonstrate that they loved America. You had to want to be an American.

You had to learn about American history. You had to promise that you were going to do your best to learn the English language. It was restrictive because it was predicated and based on the fact that we were in charge of who was going to live here.

 

The True History of Immigration in America

INVASION USA

Yes, unvetted illegal caravans threaten public health

Michelle Malkin wallops ‘fake newsers’ for calling those citing disease issue racist

My parents, legal immigrants from the Philippines, were screened for a panoply of communicable and infectious diseases.

My husband’s great-great grandparents and their relatives from Ukraine underwent thorough medical and physical exams at Ellis Island immediately after disembarking from their arduous transatlantic journeys. A team of doctors checked for everything from eye disease and muscle weakness to heart conditions, ringworm and mental deficiencies. Those who failed were rejected and ejected. No appeals, no apologies, no amnesty.

I find it especially bizarre that some of the same outspoken, big-government advocates for vaccinating every American citizen, young or old, against every possible condition, from the flu to chickenpox to HPV, are the same types now howling over the commonsense idea that we should protect ourselves from foreign diseases.

The Immigration and Nationality Act mandates medical screening exams for legal immigrants and refugees from around the world. The tests are performed by authorized physicians in either the applicants’ countries of origin or in the United States. The process includes “a physical examination, mental health evaluation, syphilis serologic testing … and chest radiography followed by acid-fast bacillus smears and sputum cultures if the chest radiograph is consistent with tuberculosis (TB).”

Legal immigrants and refugees must provide mandatory proof of vaccination for measles, mumps, rubella, polio, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, hepatitis A and B, rotavirus, meningococcus, chicken pox, pneumonia and seasonal flu.

Moreover, the Centers for Disease Control, not Fox News or the Trump White House or any other evil conservatives, reports that “most experts agree that testing for TB, hepatitis B, and HIV should be performed for most new arrivals to the United States. Clinicians should also make a habit of ensuring that this screening has been done for every new non-U.S.-born patient they see, regardless of time since the person’s arrival.”

Actual public health experts across the Southwest have reported rises in drug-resistant TB and dengue fever. In June, Australian public health researchers reported that “scabies, long considered a disease of the past in the developed world, is making its way back.” The scientists pointed to mass global migration as a leading factor, noting scabies outbreaks among refugees to the European Union and along America’s southern border.

And in Germany, federal epidemiologists reported that since opening the floodgates to migrants in 2015, data show “increased incidences in Germany of adenoviral conjunctivitis, botulism, chicken pox, cholera, cryptosporidiosis, dengue fever, echinococcosis, enterohemorrhagic E. coli, giardiasis, haemophilus influenza, Hantavirus, hepatitis, hemorrhagic fever, HIV/AIDS, leprosy, louse-borne relapsing fever, malaria, measles, meningococcal disease, meningoencephalitis, mumps, paratyphoid, rubella, shigellosis, syphilis, toxoplasmosis, trichinellosis, tuberculosis, tularemia, typhus and whooping cough.”

It’s simply insane to argue we should turn a blind eye to the health status of law-breaking aliens. And it’s treachery, yes, treachery, for so-called journalists to use their platforms to blithely smear those who dare to question open-borders orthodoxy or report the highly inconvenient facts.

1 – Close the Border

2 – Refuse Bogus Asylum Claims

3 – Refuse Entry to Migrants and Send Them Home

4 – Mandate Asylum Claims be Made in Consulates or Embassies in Home Countries, Not U.S. Ports of Entry

Mueller Victim Exposes Massive FRAUD

Michael Caputo, Mueller Victim

“Today, I can’t possibly pay the attendant legal costs and live near my aging father, raising my kids where I grew up. Your investigation and others into the allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russia are costing my family a great deal of money – more than $125,000 – and making a visceral impact on my children. Now I must to move back to Washington, New York City, Miami or elsewhere, just so I can make enough money to pay off these legal bills. And I know I have you to thank for that.”
‘Forget about all the death threats against my family. I want to know who cost us so much money, who crushed our kids, who forced us out of our home, all because you lost an election. I want to know because God Damn you to Hell.”

It’s plain to see that the Mueller farce, meant to undermine the Trump agenda and boost Democrats, is ruining lives. The anti-Trump swamp doesn’t care how many innocent lives they destroy, so long as they can get famous, make money, and hurt Trump.

Unredacted House Intel Report Reveals the Railroading of Michael Flynn

 

Michael Caputo Attests to What I’ve Told You the Establishment Is Doing

 

Deep State Swamp exposed: Robert Mueller Praise is False Information

Rush Limbaugh

The never-ending praise and accolades for the fairness, the open-mindedness, the nonjudgmentalism, the integrity and the honor of Robert Mueller has been his hallmark that has been his reputation for as long as he’s been in Washington. As either the FBI director, assistant attorney general — he’s served a number of presidents in a number of positions — his reputation is impeccable. And if you ask me, none of it’s true, and none of it is warranted.

To me, this guy, Robert Mueller, personifies actually what is wrong with the Washington establishment, not what is right about it. No more integrity than this guy has. More honor than anybody else. I mean, he’s the personification of Dudley Do-Right. If Robert Mueller were this honorable person — the right choice to get to the bottom of this for the sake of the nation, for the sake of our culture, for the sake of doing the right thing — then he would have shut down this investigation long ago and lectured everybody about the improprieties and dangers involved in all of this.

He would have exposed the conspiracy and the corruption in the FBI that prolonged this, and he would have named names. He would have properly looked into real collusion between Fusion GPS, the Hillary Clinton campaign, the Democrat National Committee and the Russians and Christopher Steele. He would have exposed it! He would have been the one to tell us that the Steele dossier was fake, phony, and fraudulent. He would have been the one to tell us that the Steele dossier had been illegally used to get a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page and whoever else that the Obama team wanted to spy on.

He would have been the one to expose all of this, if he were the guy we’ve been told that he is. But he’s obviously not. He’s right in there with the rest of these partisan buffoons helping to perpetuate this crock, helping to perpetuate this injustice. And if this is the guy… If this is the guy we’re all told, “Trust it, Rush! Trust Mueller. He’s the guy to get to the bottom of this. He’ll find out what’s been going on. He’s got no partisan chip in his bones. Yeah, he’s a registered Republican, but that doesn’t matter.”

And then of course we find out that in the Whitey Bulger case, four people — innocent people — spent 30 years in jail when he knew they didn’t do it. Two of them died in jail! And one of the reasons was so he could protect the identity of a confidential informant. There isn’t any integrity here, and there isn’t any honor, and it doesn’t appear there’s any justice going on. So now we see that Rudy says that Mueller’s team shouts down the idea of written interviews with Trump.

And what we learned, after studying it over the weekend, was that the stuff that had been redacted was simply to protect the incompetent and perhaps biased procedures that they had engaged in at the FBI and the DOJ throughout this entire investigation. There was nothing national security related. It had all been redacted simply to cover up what Strzok and Page had been doing. It had been redacted to cover-up that Comey had been lying to people.

Comey did tell people that Flynn did not lie. Comey did tell people that he had talked to interviewees, people who talked to Flynn and nobody that interviewed Flynn thought that he had lied and yet here he’s pled guilty to lying? Now, the point that I made is Trump enjoys, I think, the political position of victim. He likes being able to tweet out all these things that Rosenstein and Mueller and the rest of these people are doing. Trump has the constitutional authority to unredact anything.

This stuff could have been ordered unredacted months ago. All Trump has to do is pick up the phone and call Rosenstein and order it done. The president can declassify anything. But he hasn’t. He has instead enjoyed tweeting about how unfair it is and about how ridiculous it is and how somebody needs to do something. Because I think Trump’s lawyers have got him convinced that if he did that, that he would be guilty of obstructing justice — and he’s dead wrong, and they’re dead wrong.

Constitution Facts

If the Congress — the elected representatives of the people who created the DOJ! The DOJ’s not in the Constitution. Congress creates the DOJ. They have oversight. If they command to see something, Trump can make them reveal it, and that’s not obstructing justice. But Trump’s lawyers are scared to death that any move — firing Mueller, unredacting this stuff, declassifying — would be seen as obstructing justice, obstructing the investigation and that Trump would be hurt politically.

I think it’s the exact opposite.

I think people would dance in the streets if Trump ordered these people to come clean with what they don’t have and end this.

Rush Limbaugh

It’s Time to Reassert the Power of the Presidency Over Bob Mueller

No special counsel has anywhere near the power of the president of the United States, in terms of the Constitution or any other structure. And neither does the deputy attorney general or the attorney general. The president is the executive branch, and everybody there serves at his pleasure.

But these people are setting it up that if they succeed in getting rid of Trump, then every president thereafter is going to be seen in terms of legal precedent subordinate to, in this case the intelligence community and the DOJ because they’re the ones running this show and acting like the president is beneath them, underneath them, however in the power structure of things.

The Constitution is being reconfigured here, and depending on how this ends, it is going to have precedent setting aspects for the office of the presidency as well.

“Sickened” FBI Agents Ready To “Come Forward And Testify” Against Comey & McCabe

FBI Agents Beg To Expose FBI Corruption?

  • · Source: TTN
  • by: TTN Staff

It is being reported that a group of FBI agents want to be subpoenaed by Congress in order to expose the problems with the once revered agency.

According to The Daily Caller:

Many agents in the FBI want Congress to subpoena them so they can reveal problems caused by former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, three people in direct contact with active field agents tell TheDC.

“There are agents all over this country who love the bureau and are sickened by [James] Comey’s behavior and [Andrew] McCabe and [Eric] Holder and [Loretta] Lynch and the thugs like [John] Brennan–who despise the fact that the bureau was used as a tool of political intelligence by the Obama administration thugs,” former federal prosecutor Joe DiGenova told The Daily Caller Tuesday. “They are just waiting for a chance to come forward and testify.”

Ahead of the release of the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general report on how the FBI handled the Clinton email investigation, TheDC spoke with DiGenova, a former Trump official who maintained contact with rank and file FBI agents and a counter-intelligence consultant who conducted an interview with an active special agent of the FBI’s Washington Field Office (WFO).

TheDC independently confirmed the veracity of the consultant’s position and access, and reviewed detailed transcripts of his Q&A with the special agent, who requested the arrangement due to internal dragnets and fear of vicious retribution.

This is just another black eye for the FBI. But it looks like there are agents that care about the integrity of the agency and want to fix it.

Why Hasn’t John Kerry Been Arrested? He Has Leftist Privilege

Like Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State John Kerry apparently enjoys the immunity from prosecution that being a powerful Leftist brings you today.

The Boston Globe revealed Friday that Kerry is working hard to sabotage President Trump’s foreign policy regarding the Islamic Republic of Iran. Kerry reportedly “sat down at the United Nations with Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to discuss ways of preserving the pact limiting Iran’s nuclear weapons program.”

This was not, apparently, a one-off meeting between Kerry and the foreign minister of the regime that orders its citizens to chant “Death to America” in mosques every Friday: “It was the second time in about two months that the two had met to strategize over salvaging a deal they spent years negotiating during the Obama administration, according to a person briefed on the meetings.”

And if you’re John Kerry, you can traverse the globe doing everything you can to undermine the foreign policy of the United States government, secure in the confidence that you will not face any consequences at all. You’re John Kerry. You’re a made man in the Leftist political elite. You could shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue, and awaken the next morning to adoring headlines in the New York Times and the Washington Post.

A Review of Obama’s Disastrous Iran Deal That Trump Just Saved Us From

Rush Limbaugh

When it comes to the Iran deal, I’m gonna go back and review a whole bunch of things from the past that we touched on when they came out that everybody has forgotten, that detail just how rotten this deal was to begin with. They also detail how the Obama administration virtually lied to the American people about it, and did so with the assistance of the media and the new alliance between the media and the Obama intelligence apparatus.

Sen. Ben Sasse: Two-and-a-half years ago, President Obama made a bad deal with Iran without support from Congress, and today President Trump is pulling out of President Obama’s personal commitment, and he doesn’t need Congress’s support to do” it because Congress had nothing to do with authorizing this.

Obama did this personally. Obama never had the votes in the U.S. Congress to get this ratified as a treaty. So Obama did it by virtue, by way of executive action. And that’s the only reason Trump is able to rip it up the way he has. If this had been sanctioned and authorized as a treaty by the United States Senate, Trump could not have done what he did yesterday. The key to remember is that Obama never had the support even of prominent people in his own party.

Collusion with Foreign Government Russia

Thanks to A.F. Branco at Legal Insurrection.com for his great cartoons

This was a disastrous deal. One of the… The $150 billion that Obama pledged to Iran upon signing of the deal? Trump has made a big deal out of that $150 billion, and of course there was another amount of money — in cash — that was delivered (chuckles) on an unmarked airplane to the Tehran airport, pallets of cash that were from Obama to the government of Iran, ostensibly for the release of American hostages. But one of the things that’s not being commented on in all of this — and it’s understandable when you hear it.

You know who one of Iran’s most important allies is? Take a guess. (singing Jeopardy! theme) Beep! Right. Russia. Russia is one of Iran’s biggest allies.

An outpost in the Middle East. Guess what? They had it with Iran. Who has been supplying Iran, largely…? They’re not the only ones, but who has been one of the majority players in supplying Iran with nuclear technology for weaponized nukes and nuclear power?

Support Terrorism, Defend Iran against Israel

Netanyahu proved Iran lied

John Kerry, secretary of state, admitted that some of the money we gave Iran would be used to fund terrorism. And they’re trying to tell us that this was a great deal and that pulling out of this deal is gonna put the United States at great risk. We were at great risk in this deal! Do you know, do you remember, this Iran deal that Obama made had a clause requiring us to defend Iran if Iran were attacked — including if they were attacked by Israel?

Trump has been talking about that since 2015 and this been one of the primary reasons Trump has wanted to pull out of this. Iran took that $150 billion and repaid the Russians for some of the nuclear infrastructure they had been building. Now with the deal over, Iran has no more source of money. And with sanctions being reenacted, reemployed on Iran, it’s gonna be even tougher for the Iranians to continue to do business with the Russians.

American Treasury Money for Terrorism

RUSH: By the way, folks, that $150 billion from Obama to Iran, it just didn’t go to Russia. John Kerry admitted that some of it would be diverted to jihad. You know what that means. Terrorism. So some of that Obama $150 billion — well, American $150 billion — went to Syria, went to the Taliban. It flowed to Hamas and Hezbollah for the war on Israel. It went to Yemen, where there’s a proxy war going on against Saudi Arabia — which, by the way, is now part of the new Trump alliance with Israel.

And then a lot of that money went to Russia to repay Russia — or to pay Russia, period — for some of the nuclear infrastructure building that the Russians had done for the Iranians. So it’s just an absolute outrage what the whole deal was in the first place.It’s nothing more than what Obama wanted to do with American foreign policy in Iran for which he never had the votes; the Iranians never signed it. It has never been binding, except to the extent that nobody would oppose it! But it’s never had the force of constitutional law behind it! It’s no different than how Obama got away with so much during his presidency. Nobody had the guts to stop him.

 

Scam? More Accurately— Treason

And they got $150 billion in cash from Obama and the State Department — well, the Treasury — and this whole thing was presented to the American people as a serious, constitutional treaty that represented an official United States agreement with the government of Iran with several allied nations as signatories (i.e., our European allies). This was nothing but another scam, folks!

And the scam was pulled off by way of an alliance between the Obama intelligence people — that would be the CIA, the DIA, the NSA, all the people that ran these agencies that were Obama acolytes — and the media as willing accomplices in furthering the misconception about this.

Stymied Investigation into Hezbollah, Drug-Trafficking

“The Obama administration stymied a sprawling investigation into the terror group Hezbollah — and its highly lucrative drug-trafficking networks — to protect the Iran nuclear deal, according to a bombshell report. A team…” Remember, this is last December.

 “A team at the Drug Enforcement Administration had been working for almost a decade to bring down [Hezbollah]’s sophisticated $1 billion-a-year drug ring, which laundered money and smuggled cocaine into the United States, Politico reported.

“But the departments of Justice and Treasury,” that would be the Obama Justice Department and Treasury, “repeatedly undermined agents’ efforts to arrest and prosecute key members of the criminal network — because the Obama White House feared upsetting Tehran ahead of the nuclear agreement, according to Politico.”

All of this is in Politico, and it’s repeated and reported in the New York Post. So everywhere you look at this deal, it was a gigantic deception and a scam — and all it is, is Barack Obama’s personal policy preferences regarding America’s relationship with Iran.

Now we need to find out what made Iran so important to Barack Obama that all of this deceit would be entered into in order to construct a, quote-unquote, “deal” the American people were told would prevent the Iranians from getting a nuclear weapon? Who was really the purpose of this? Why was this so important to Obama? We know now why he didn’t submit this for ratification. We know why this was not treated as a treaty.

 

Why? Because Obama is a friend of Iran, and an enemy of United States and Israel. (C.D.)

America First:

Hostages in Korea Released

Three Prisoners Released from North Korea: ‘God Bless America, the Greatest Nation in the World’

by Michelle Moons

9 May 2018

The three men released from North Korea into the custody of United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo put out a joint statement as they traveled home to the U.S.

Kim Hak Song, Kim Dong Cul, and Kim Sang-Duk said, according to Reuters:

We would like to express our deep appreciation to the United States government, President Trump, Secretary Pompeo, and the people of the United States for bringing us home. We thank God, and all our families and friends who prayed for us and for our return. God Bless America, the greatest nation in the world.

Pompeo gave a briefing to reporters traveling with him on the trip back to the U.S. from North Korea. Asked if there were any glitches during the 13-hour stay, Pompeo said, “It was a long day. But there were no moments where I felt like we were going to be anything but successful in the day.”

Asked about what may have ultimately led Kim to release the prisoners, Pompeo replied, “I think that Chairman Kim is trying to set good conditions for the summit, right. I think we’re – I think we are having good conversations, productive conversations. And so I think the work that President Trump has done to put us in this place made this possible.”

Another reporter asked Pompeo what he said to the prisoners upon receiving them. Pompeo said, “I welcomed them back. Although we’re not quite back home yet, I welcomed them back. They were happy to be with us on this plane, to be sure.”

“We have the three Americans on the plane, which is incredibly exciting. They seem to be in good health. The doctors are with them now, but all indications are at this point that their health is as good as could be given that they’ve been held,” said Pompeo. “They all walked up the stairs themselves, with their own power, so good enough to do that.” He added that they should soon have a more complete readout of the three men’s health. The plane that the group later met up with in Japan was expected to have “more robust medical capabilities” to attend to the three.

The plane carrying Pompeo and the released prisoners landed in Alaska late Wednesday before continuing on to Washington, DC.

Trump Administration frees 14 and Counting

Trump Era Brings Home 14 Unjustly Detained Americans and Counting

by Edwin Mora

U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration — less than a year and a half into its tenure — has helped secure the release of at least 14 Americans, including three children born in captivity to an American woman and her Canadian husband held by the Afghan Taliban and al-Qaeda-linked Haqqani Network.

Marking the latest in a series of victories by the Trump administration in winning the release of Americans held abroad are the three U.S. citizens liberated this week by the murderous and oppressive North Korean regime.

History Facts: Founding Father James Monroe and the Monroe Doctrine

History Facts:

Founding Father James Monroe and the Monroe Doctrine

James Monroe (/mənˈroʊ/; April 28, 1758 – July 4, 1831) was an American statesman who served from 1817 to 1825 as the fifth President of the United States. Monroe was the last president among the Founding Fathers of the United States as well as the Virginian dynasty; he also represented the end of the Republican Generation in that office.[1] Born in Westmoreland County, Virginia, Monroe was of the planter class and fought in the American Revolutionary War. He was wounded in the Battle of Trenton with a musket ball to his shoulder. After studying law under Thomas Jefferson from 1780 to 1783, he served as a delegate in the Continental Congress.

As an anti-federalist delegate to the Virginia convention that considered ratification of the United States Constitution, Monroe opposed ratification, claiming it gave too much power to the central government. He took an active part in the new government, and in 1790 he was elected to the Senate of the first United States Congress, where he joined the Democratic-Republicans. He gained experience as an executive as the Governor of Virginia and rose to national prominence as a diplomat in France, when he helped negotiate the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. During the War of 1812, Monroe served in critical roles as Secretary of State and the Secretary of War under President James Madison.[2]

Facing little opposition from the fractured Federalist Party, Monroe was easily elected president in 1816, winning over 80 percent of the electoral vote and becoming the last president during the First Party System era of American politics. As president, he sought to ease partisan tensions, embarking on a tour of the country that was well received. With the ratification of the Treaty of 1818, under the successful diplomacy of his Secretary of State John Quincy Adams, the United States extended its reach from the Atlantic to the Pacific, by acquiring harbor and fishing rights in the Pacific Northwest; the United States and Britain jointly occupied the Oregon Country. In addition to the acquisition of Florida, the 1819 Adams–Onís Treaty secured the border of the United States along the 42nd Parallel to the Pacific Ocean and represented America’s first determined attempt at creating an “American global empire”.[3] As nationalism surged, partisan fury subsided, and the “Era of Good Feelings” ensued, until the Panic of 1819 struck, and a dispute over the admission of Missouri embroiled the country in 1820. Nonetheless, Monroe won near-unanimous reelection.

Monroe supported the founding of colonies in Africa for freed slaves that would eventually form the nation of Liberia, whose capital, Monrovia, is named in his honor. In 1823, he announced the United States’ opposition to any European intervention in the recently independent countries of the Americas with the Monroe Doctrine, which became a landmark in American foreign policy. His presidency concluded the first period of American presidential history before the beginning of Jacksonian democracy and the Second Party System era. Following his retirement in 1825, Monroe was plagued by financial difficulties. He died in New York City on July 4, 1831. He has been ranked in the aggregate by scholars as the 16th most successful president.

Revolutionary War service

Monroe wounded in battle of Trenton, Revolutionary War, and cited for bravery

In early 1776, about a year and a half after his enrollment, Monroe dropped out of college and joined the 3rd Virginia Regiment in the Continental Army.[8] As the fledgling army valued literacy in its officers, Monroe was commissioned with the rank of lieutenant, serving under Captain William Washington. After months of training, Monroe and seven hundred Virginia infantrymen were called north to serve in the New York and New Jersey campaign. Shortly after the Virginians arrived, Washington led the army in a retreat from New York City into New Jersey and then across the Delaware River into Pennsylvania. In December, Monroe took part in a surprise attack on a Hessian encampment. Though the attack was successful, Monroe suffered a severed artery in the battle and nearly died. In the aftermath of the battle, Washington cited Monroe and Washington for their bravery, and promoted Monroe to the rank of captain. After his wounds healed, Monroe returned to Virginia to recruit his own company of soldiers.[9] Monroe’s participation in the battle was memorialized in John Trumbull‘s painting, The Capture of the Hessians at Trenton, December 26, 1776, as well as Emanuel Leutze‘s Washington Crossing the Delaware.[10]

Monroe Doctrine

After the Napoleonic wars (which ended in 1815), almost all of Spain’s and Portugal’s colonies in Latin America revolted and declared independence. Americans welcomed this development as a validation of the spirit of Republicanism. Secretary of State John Quincy Adams suggested delaying formal recognition until Florida was secured. The problem of imperial invasion was intensified by a Russian claim to the Pacific coast down to the fifty-first parallel and simultaneous European pressure to have all of Latin America returned to its colonial status.[citation needed]

Monroe informed Congress in March 1822 that permanent stable governments had been established in the United Provinces of the River Plate (the core of present-day Argentina), Colombia, Chile, and Mexico. Adams, under Monroe’s supervision, wrote the instructions for the ministers (ambassadors) to these new countries. They declared that the policy of the United States was to uphold republican institutions and to seek treaties of commerce on a most-favored-nation basis. The United States would support inter-American congresses dedicated to the development of economic and political institutions fundamentally differing from those prevailing in Europe. The articulation of an “American system” distinct from that of Europe was a basic tenet of Monroe’s policy toward Latin America. Monroe took pride as the United States was the first nation to extend recognition and to set an example to the rest of the world for its support of the “cause of liberty and humanity”.[citation needed]

Monroe formally announced in his message to Congress on December 2, 1823, what was later called the Monroe Doctrine. He proclaimed that the Americas should be free from future European colonization and free from European interference in sovereign countries’ affairs. It further stated the United States’ intention to stay neutral in wars amongst European powers and their colonies, but to consider new colonies or interference with independent countries in the Americas as hostile acts toward the United States.[b]

Although it is Monroe’s most famous contribution to history, the speech was written by Adams, who designed the doctrine in cooperation with Britain.[79] Monroe and Adams realized that American recognition would not protect the new countries against military intervention to restore Spain’s power. In October 1823, Richard Rush, the American minister in London, advised that Foreign Secretary George Canning was proposing that the U.S. and Britain jointly declare their opposition to European intervention. Britain, with its powerful navy, also opposed re-conquest of Latin America and suggested that the United States join in proclaiming a “hands off” policy. Galvanized by the British initiative, Monroe consulted with American leaders and then formulated a plan with Adams. Ex-Presidents Jefferson and Madison counseled Monroe to accept the offer, but Adams advised, “It would be more candid … to avow our principles explicitly to Russia and France, than to come in as a cock-boat in the wake of the British man-of-war.” Monroe accepted Adams’ advice. Not only must Latin America be left alone, he warned, but also Russia must not encroach southward on the Pacific coast. “the American continents,” he stated, “by the free and independent condition which they have assumed and maintain, are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future colonization by any European Power.”[citation needed]

The Monroe Doctrine at the time of its adoption thus pertained more to the Russians in North America than to the former Spanish colonies. The result was a system of American isolationism under the sponsorship of the British navy. The Monroe Doctrine held that the United States considered the Western Hemisphere as no longer a place for European colonization; that any future effort to gain further political control in the hemisphere or to violate the independence of existing states would be treated as an act of hostility; and finally that there existed two different and incompatible political systems in the world. The United States, therefore, promised to refrain from intervention in European affairs and demanded Europe to abstain from interfering with American matters. There were few serious European attempts at intervention.[

Church and State Issues: Responsibility of Government—law enforcement against Illegal Immigration; Christians— give Humanitarian Aid

Church and State Issues:

Responsibility of Government—law enforcement against Illegal Immigration; Christians— give Humanitarian Aid

Christians are to give aid, Responsibility of Government is Law Enforcement

“I’m commanded to help those who are hungry and those who are thirsty – as a Christian. And it’s also my responsibility to insist as a citizen that my government enforce the law.”~Richard Land

Right on! This is what I’ve been saying all along. ~C.D.

Christians are to give Aid

The Bible says to care for the downtrodden … to love the least of these … to be hospitable to all … to welcome the stranger. But according to one evangelical leader, that doesn’t mean America should have an “open borders” immigration policy.

Evangelical supporters of illegal immigration often point to Matthew 25 when the discussion turns to those for whom they advocate. How can you turn them away – they ask – when the Bible so clearly says to feed them, to give them drink, to invite them in?

Speaking yesterday on American Family Radio, Richard Land of Southern Evangelical Seminary said they are exactly right.

“Let’s say that someone comes to my door and they are asking for some food or they’re asking for some water,” he suggested. “It’s not my responsibility to inquire into their immigration status before I give them a glass of water and before I give them food.”

Responsibility of Government: Law Enforcement

The Bible is clear, he says: just serve them. But when it comes to setting policy for the country, Land explained, the U.S. government has a different scriptural mandate.

“The government is there to enforce the law,” he stated. “One of the biggest problems we have with our immigration situation in the United States is that for the last half-century, the American government has not enforced the law.”

“We have encouraged and aided and abetted law-breaking. We’ve had two signs up at the border: one sign says No Trespassing; the other sign says Help Wanted.”

It’s the government’s job to protect the nation’s citizens, to guard its borders, to “wield the sword,” he added.

“I’m commanded to help those who are hungry and those who are thirsty – as a Christian,” Land concluded. “And it’s also my responsibility to insist as a citizen that my government enforce the law.”

Christians are to give aid, gov’t is to enforce laws
