Missouri. everybody should read this. everybody!–

Missouri. everybody should read this. everybody!–8kh.,b21

Missouri has no illegal’s; go figure… Shouldn’t the other states do the same? Missouri’s approach to the problem of illegal immigration appears to be more advanced, sophisticated, strict and effective than anything to date in Arizona. Does the White House appreciate what Missouri has done? So, why doesn’t Missouri receive attention? Answer: There are no illegal’s in Missouri to demonstrate.

The “Show Me” state has again shown us how it should be done. There needs to be more publicity and exposure regarding what Missouri has done. Please pass this around.

In 2007, Missouri placed on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment designating English as the official language of Missouri. In November, 2008, nearly 90% voted in favor! Thus, English became the official language for ALL governmental activity in Missouri. No individual has the right to demand government services in a language OTHER than English.
In 2008, a measure was passed that required the Missouri Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officials to verify the immigration status of any person arrested, and inform federal authorities if the person is found to be in Missouri illegally. Missouri law enforcement officers receive specific training with respect to enforcement of federal immigration laws.
In Missouri, illegal immigrants do NOT have access to taxpayer benefits such as food stamps or health care through Missouri Health NET.

In 2009, a measure was passed that ensures Missouri ‘s public institutions of higher education do NOT award financial aid to individuals who are illegally in the United States.
In Missouri all post-secondary institutions of higher education are required to annually certify to the Missouri Department Of Higher Education that they have NOT knowingly awarded financial aid to students who are unlawfully present in the United States.
So, while Arizona has made national news for its new law, it is important to remember, Missouri has been far more proactive in addressing this horrific problem. Missouri has made it clear that illegal immigrants are NOT WELCOME in the state and they will NOT receive public benefits at the expense of Missouri taxpayers.

Trump delivers epic Easter address… libs hate what he slipped in-

Trump delivers epic Easter address… libs hate what he slipped in–58jh.,b58

President Donald Trump shocked the entire world with an Easter message so poignant and powerful, and so completely different from anything uttered by President Barack Obama during his eight years in power, that it had grabbed the attention of friend and rivals alike.

In the address delivered Friday, Trump, of course, spoke about the Christian Easter holiday and acknowledged God’s power throughout history. But he also used biblical examples to back up his statements, first choosing to talk about the Jewish feast of Passover as a celebration of God’s deliverance of the Israelites in the Book of Exodus then leading up to the challenges America and the world face in our own day.

“Down through the centuries, the Jewish people have lived through one persecution after another – and yet, they persevered and thrived and uplifted the world beyond measure,” the president said. ” And now, the state of Israel stands as a monument to their faith and endurance.” Strong words of support for Israel have not been heard from the White House for many years. During Obama’s eight years as president, he often made decisions that harmed Israel, one of America’s closest allies.

In fact, you might remember when President Obama and his administration became strangely silent when it came to standing up to the United Nations in support of Israel. In 2016, America’s silence meant the U.N. passed an anti-Israel resolution which forbade all Israeli construction on the West Bank, because of complaints from the Palestinian people.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned Obama after the resolution passed, stating: “The Obama administration not only failed to protect Israel against this gang-up at the UN, it colluded with it behind the scenes.”

Of course, Trump has done nothing but support Israel since his first day in office. Also in his Easter address — Trump acknowledged that the holiday is a Christian one. “This Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate the resurrection of Christ and the promise of eternal salvation,” he said. “It is a holy day of reverence and worship; it is a sacred time that fills the spirit of our nation with the faith of our people.”

He then continued to thank God for the vast blessings given to America, including the freedom of worship. If you are shocked at such pro-Christian, pro-God words coming from a U.S. president, you are most likely not alone. In 2015, President Obama’s Easter address made headlines for its anti-Christian message. According to Newsmax, the former president called Christians “anti-loving.”

“On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that, as a Christian, I am supposed to love, and I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less-than-loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned, but that’s a topic for another day,” Obama said. Perhaps that is why Obama refused to denounce radical Islam. In fact, at the 2015 National Prayer Breakfast, Obama dared to compare modern jihadists to the Crusaders from the Middle Ages.

“Lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ,” Obama said. Meanwhile, Trump had no problem condemning the terrorist killers of the Islamic State group during his Easter address.

The president also managed to let Americans know that both he and his entire administration would fight — not only for all Americans, but also all the marginalized and those threatened by terror throughout the world.

“I want you to know: This White House is fighting for you.  We are fighting for every American who has been left behind,” he said. “We are fighting for the right of all citizens to enjoy safety and peace — and to work and live with the dignity that all children of God are entitled to know.”

On the other hand, Obama did not use the United States military. His ineptitude, vacillation and weaknesses led directly to the growth of the Islamic State group in the Middle East that America confronts today.

Nothing of that kind will be ever be tolerated under the Trump administration. Just a day before Trump’s address, the American military dropped the weapon known as the Massive Ordnance Air Blast — aka “The Mother of All Bombs” — on an Islamic State-held series of tunnels in the Nangarhar province of Afghanistan. That attack killed 94 ISIS fighters.

Trump’s Easter message was one that combined the hope of religious faith with the determination of action that can protect freedom at home and abroad. “As long as we have faith in each other, and trust in God, we will succeed,” he said. it was a message to make America great again.

southern California will be the proving ground for border wall prototypes

southern California will be the proving ground for border wall prototypes–58jh.,b58

With the bids in on Donald Trump’s border wall, now it’s time to pick the finalists to build the barrier. And it won’t just be done on paper — part of the process is building a prototype of the wall for federal officials to judge.

And where will those prototypes be built? In sunny Southern California — the most liberal-infested state in this great country.  Oh, the irony. The irony.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, a statement from U.S. Customs and Border Protection confirmed on Monday that prototypes will be built on federal land in Otay Mesa, a community in San Diego County.

Aside from being in one of the most liberal areas of the most liberal state in the land, Otay Mesa is also home to one of two border crossings in the county. In other words, it’s the perfect place to put up the prototype walls.

Up to 20 firms will be competing in the design round, according to the Union-Tribune, although The Associated Press had previously reported the number as between four and 10. The prototypes are expected to cost between $200,000 and $400,000.

The quarter-mile strip of federal land is within 120 feet of the border; it’s ideal because it would allow authorities to judge how wall prototypes would work in a heavily trafficked area. The winners would be selected on or around June 1, and prototype building should commence that month, according to AP.

While protests are expected, San Diego police said they plan to allow them so long as they’re non-violent.

“As part of our community policing philosophy, we work closely with any party or group that wishes to express their views in a law-abiding manner,” San Diego police spokesman Lt. Scott Wahl said.

Needless to say, California liberals are furious. State Sen. Ricardo Lara has even introduced legislation that would forbid the state from dealing with any contractors who work on the wall.

“It’s clear that President Trump intends to stick taxpayers with the cost of a border wall that will hurt California’s economy, environment and people,” the Democrat said, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. “I introduced Senate Bill 30 to give our state a louder voice to say that building a wasteful and unnecessary wall would be a huge mistake.”

When it helps build the wall and manages to tick off California liberals, you know it has to be good.

Some Minneapolis muslims protest ‘sharia’ vigilante in Cedar-Riverside area–

Some Minneapolis muslims protest ‘sharia’ vigilante in Cedar-Riverside area–5gh.,b–12-2

Abdullah Rashid, 22, a Georgia native who moved to Cedar-Riverside last year says his group, General Presidency of the Religious Affairs and Welfare of the Ummah, is trying to enforce what he calls ìthe civil part of the sharia lawî in the area. A man trying to impose what he calls “the civil part of the sharia law” in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis has sparked anger among local residents and Muslim leaders.

Abdullah Rashid, 22, a Georgia native who moved to Cedar-Riverside last year, has been making the rounds in the Somali-dominated neighborhood, telling people not to drink, use drugs or interact with the opposite sex. If he sees Muslim women he believes are dressed inappropriately, he approaches them and suggests they should wear a jilbab, a long, flowing garment. And he says he’s recruiting others to join the effort. But local Muslim leaders are sounding the alarm. They are working to stop Rashid’s group, General Presidency of the Religious Affairs and Welfare of the Ummah, and have notified Minneapolis police, who say he’s being banned from a Cedar-Riverside property. Some say the group is preying on vulnerable young Muslims in a community that has dealt with national scrutiny around radicalization and terrorism.

“What he’s doing is wrong and doesn’t reflect the community at all,” said Jaylani Hussein, executive director of the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Minneapolis police received reports in February from concerned residents who saw Rashid in a dark green uniform that said “Muslim Defense Force” and “Religious Police” and had two flags associated with ISIS and other terrorist groups.

In a recent interview, Rashid said he aims to turn Cedar-Riverside into a “sharia-controlled zone” where Muslims are learning about the proper practices of Islam and that “non-Muslims are asked to respect” it. “People who don’t know me would say I’m a terrorist,” he said. “I’m someone who’s dedicated to Islam and trying to help the community all ways I can.”

“We consider this matter as a dangerous precedent and a threat in our country and our way of life,” the statement said. “We ask our law enforcement agencies to consider this grave matter to protect Minnesotans.”

Permit to carry denied Sharia law is a guide to daily life for practicing Muslims, derived from the Qur’an and the teachings of the prophet Mohammed. It tells Muslims, for example, what to eat and not to eat. Its interpretation and practice vary around the world. Rashid, who was previously known as Devon James Miller, converted to Islam in 2009. He said he first started the religious police group in Georgia in 2013, and wants to grow it internationally.

But residents of the Cedar-Riverside Plaza complex have raised concerns about him, and management with Sherman Associates said they are aware of the group and working closely with law enforcement.

On Wednesday, Minneapolis police said the Cedar-Riverside Towers’ management is in the process of evicting Rashid, and security at Cedar-Riverside Plaza is advising him he’s not allowed to patrol the neighborhood or they will cite him for trespassing.

‘Against his ideas’

On his website, Rashid posted a video titled “Never Trust Non-Muslims” by Anwar al-Awlaki, leader of an Al-Qaida affiliate in Yemen, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in 2011. And he had initially listed the Masjid Shaafici Cultural Center in Cedar-Riverside address as his organization’s headquarters. But the imam of that mosque, Abdighani Ali, said it has nothing to do with Rashid’s group. Ali said he plans to file a complaint with police.

“We’re against his ideas,” Ali said. “We always encourage our community to be a part of the society.”

Trump signs bill to overturn obama rule that forced States to fund planned parenthood-

Trump signs bill to overturn obama rule that forced States to fund planned parenthood–23kh.b63

On Thursday, President Donald Trump signed a bill into law that overturns the previous rule that Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah put in place that prevented states from defunding Planned Parenthood murder mills.

After passing the House and facing a tie-breaking vote in the Senate by Vice President Mike Pence, the bill was sent to Trump’s desk and he signed it.

Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser told LifeNews.com, “This week the pro-life movement had two huge victories: first, the swearing-in of Justice Gorsuch and now, President Trump will undo former President Obama’s parting gift to the abortion industry. The resolution signed today simply ensures that states are not forced to fund an abortion business with taxpayer dollars. Rather, states have the option to spend Title X money on comprehensive health care clinics that better serve women and girls.”

“We thank President Trump, Vice President Pence, who cast the tie-breaking vote last month, as well as the women who led this effort in Congress, Rep. Diane Black and Sen. Joni Ernst,” she added.  “Prioritizing funding away from Planned Parenthood to comprehensive health care alternatives is a winning issue. We expect to see Congress continue its efforts to redirect additional taxpayer funding away from Planned Parenthood through pro-life health care reform after the spring recess.”

“According to its 2014-2015 annual report, Planned Parenthood performed 323,999 abortion procedures in just one year. Taxpayers should not be forced to subsidize the abortion industry in this country. Nor should they be forced to foot the bill for an organization like Planned Parenthood that has displayed such blatant disregard for human life.”

This didn’t stop Planned Parenthood from attacking the bill and President Trump.

“Planned Parenthood strongly opposes President Trump’s willingness to undermine millions of women’s access to birth control through the Title X family planning program,” said Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens in a statement.  “Four million people depend on the Title X family planning program, and by signing this bill, President Trump disregards their health and well-being.”

Really?  Whose health is being disregarded when Planned Parenthood engages in the merciless murders of the unborn, or even more, what about all of the women that end up seriously injured or even dead at the hands of abortion doctors?

Furthermore, Planned Parenthood is not entitled to any money from government.  The people never gave Congress the authority to distribute that money to murder mills or any other “business.”  Those that have been doing that for decades, be they Republican or Democrat, are acting criminally against the people and are complicit in the murder of more than 3,000 babies every day in our country.

I’m glad to hear that President Trump has signed this bill that recognizes the rights of the States in this matter to choke out Planned Parenthood.  Now, let’s move on to full abolition of abortion and prosecution of those who engage in it.

democrat Maxine Waters caught in another corruption scandal–

democrat Maxine Waters caught in another corruption scandal–9kh.b12

Now, news is breaking that another popular Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has been discovered in a similarly troubling ethical conundrum.

The Washington Free Beacon is reporting that Karen Waters has been paid over $600K by her mother since 2006:

The daughter of Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) was paid nearly $70,000 by her mother’s campaign during the 2016 election cycle.

Karen Waters has been on the payroll of her mother’s campaign committee, Citizens for Waters, since 2006. She has pulled in more than $600,000 for her services since that time…

Karen pulled in $65,287 overseeing the slate mailer operation in 2016, making her the third-largest recipient of Waters campaign funds that cycle. Karen, together with her firm Progressive Connections, has received over $600,000 in payments from the Waters campaign since 2006.

This isn’t the first time that Waters has gotten herself into ethical hot water, in fact, it’s happened several different times over the almost 30 years she’s been in Congress.

In 2010, Waters was brought up on three separate charges by her colleagues in the House, even after Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) warned her against getting involved in advocating for a bank in which she had financial interest.

The panel said Waters, who sits on the Financial Services Committee, broke a House rule requiring members to behave in a way that reflects “creditably” on the chamber. The committee said that by trying to assist OneUnited, she stood to benefit directly, because her husband owned a sizable amount of stock that would have been “worthless” if the bank failed.

The committee also accused Waters of violating the “spirit” of a House rule prohibiting lawmakers from using their positions for financial gain, as well as a government ethics statute banning the dispensing of “special favors.”

She also been tabbed by various government watchdogs as “one of the most corrupt” politicians in Congress. (See here and here.)

The point is, no one should be surprised by Waters’ current difficulties because it is simply more of the same from someone who always seems to find herself in ethically questionable situations.

Scandal-Plagued Maxine Waters Top Dem on Banking Committee

DECEMBER 10, 2012

A famously corrupt—and seemingly untouchable—congresswoman renowned for abusing her power to enrich family members is set to hold a ranking position on the powerful House committee that oversees the nation’s financial services industries.

Even for Washington this is a bit much. Democrats have chosen a scandal-plagued college, veteran Congresswoman Maxine Waters, to be the ranking member on the House Financial Services Committee despite her many transgressions over the years. The influential congresswoman has helped family members make more than $1 million through business ventures with companies and causes that she has helped, according to her hometown newspaper.

A few years ago Waters was investigated by the House Ethics Committee for steering $12 million in federal bailout funds to a failing Massachusetts bank (that subsequently got shut down by the government) in which she and her board member husband held shares. Read all about it in Waters’ profile on Judicial Watch’s 2011 “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians.” list.

Waters has also come under fire for skirting federal elections rules with a shady fundraising gimmick that allows her to receive unlimited amounts of donations from certain contributors. For years the veteran Los Angeles lawmaker has raked in hundreds of thousands of dollars in short periods of time by selling her endorsement to other politicians and political causes for as much as $45,000 a pop instead of raising most of her campaign funds from individuals and political action committees.

Never the less, Waters has been chosen by her party leaders to be their top representative on the Financial Services Committee which has jurisdiction over all issues pertaining to the economy, the banking system, monetary policy and international finance. The announcement was made last week by the House Democratic Caucus steering and policy committee, which is controlled by none other than Nancy Pelosi, the former House Speaker who used the U.S. Air Force as her personal airline.

It wouldn’t be right to part without also noting some of Maxine Waters’ international accolades. She has made worldwide headlines for her frequent trips to communist Cuba to visit her convicted cop-assassin friend, Joanne Chesimard, who is also known by her Black Panther name of Assata Shakur. Chesimard was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted by a jury of the 1979 murder of a New Jersey State Trooper. With the help of fellow cult members, she escaped from jail and fled to Cuba.

Outraged U.S. lawmakers insisted she be extradited but Waters always stood by her side, likening the cop-assassin to civil rights leader Martin Luther King. In fact, she wrote Cuban Dictator Fidel Castro a letter to assure him that she was not part of the group of U.S. legislators who voted for a resolution to extradite the cop murderer. Waters told Castro that she opposed extradition because Chesimard was “politically persecuted” in the U.S. and simply seeking political asylum in Havana, where she still lives.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) Named One of the Most Corrupt Members of Congress–CREW

Washington, D.C. – In the midst of a national financial catastrophe, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) used her position as a senior member of Congress and member of the House Financial Services Committee to prevail upon Treasury officials to meet with OneUnited Bank.  She never disclosed that her husband held stock in the bank.  This outrageous conduct has led Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) to include the congresswoman as one of the Most Corrupt Members of Congress.

“By contacting then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson to request a meeting, allegedly for a group of minority-owned banks, but then arranging for only one bank – OneUnited, in which she had a financial interest – to attend, Rep. Waters violated House conflict of interest rules,” said CREW Executive Director Melanie Sloan.

Around the same time Rep. Waters asked the Treasury Department to hold the initial meeting, Rep. Waters spoke to Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) about OneUnited, telling him that her husband previously had served on the board.  Rep. Frank advised her to stay out of matters related to the bank. Nevertheless, Rep. Waters’ chief of staff and grandson, Mikael Moore, continued to actively assist OneUnited representatives in their quest to receive bailout funds, and worked to craft legislation authorizing Treasury to grant OneUnited’s request.

Rep. Waters was scheduled for an ethics trial on November 29, 2010, but the House Ethics Committee postponed the hearing.  Inconsistent reports have emerged suggesting both potential new evidence and serious misconduct by two of the committee’s attorneys and improper conduct by committee members. In July 2011, the committee hired respected D.C attorney Billy Martin as outside counsel to investigate both the case against Rep. Waters and the committee itself.

“The ethics committee has handled the case against Rep. Waters with the maturity of school children,” said Ms. Sloan.  “Happily, adult supervision in the form of Mr. Martin has been brought in to clean up the mess.”

This is the 7th edition of the CREW’S Most Corrupt Report, an annual look at a bipartisan collection of Washington’s worst.  This year’s list includes seven Democrats, and 12 Republicans.  Five are repeat offenders.  Since 2005, CREW has named 70 members of Congress to the list, 32 of whom are no longer in office.

— Trump says Hillary was “guilty of every charge”-

— Trump says Hillary was “guilty of every charge”-

Less than three months into his term, President Donald Trump has had some wins — Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch — and some losses — the failure of Obamacare’s repeal — but one thing has remained steady: His belief that his 2016 election opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was guilty as sin.

“Don’t forget, when (FBI Director) Jim Comey came out, he saved Hillary Clinton, referring to the stunning moment last year when Comey read off a list of Clinton’s proven crimes, then announced he would not be recommending charges against her.

“When he was reading those charges, she was guilty on very charge,” Trump added, according to a transcript from The Washington Post. “And then he said, she was essentially OK. But he — she wasn’t OK, because she was guilty on every charge.”

 And she was a liar who had twisted the truth numerous times, all in a bid to act as if she was innocent, when in fact she was not: Unfortunately, it appeared unlikely that either Trump or Attorney General Jeff Sessions would reopen investigations into Clinton, due to both political and personal reasons.

She has begun trying to pin the blame for her election loss on everybody but herself — including the American people. Considering her nasty attitude, it would kind of be nice to see her brought to justice. Speaking of which, in a series of tweets published late last month, the president indicated that he believed Clinton should be investigated for her ties to Russia.

Saying that the FBI’s investigation was handled “honestly, competently and independently,” he excoriated Clinton for being “careless” with information and left open the possibility that foreign actors may have hacked into her email. However, he announced that “no reasonable prosecutor” would go forward with charges against Clinton.

Comey’s recommendation will go to the Department of Justice, who will ultimately decide whether she should be charged.

“(A)ny reasonable person in Secretary Clinton’s position, or in the position of those government employees with whom she was corresponding about these matters, should have known that an unclassified system was no place for” those emails, Comey said during the press conference, during which he took no questions.

Comey said that he did not find evidence that Clinton’s team at the State Department sought to delete emails deliberately to prevent them from being found. However, he did say that certain devices were wiped “as to preclude complete forensic recovery,” which sounds like a pleasant euphemism for chicanery.

Comey confirmed that, contrary to what Clinton has said all along, many of her emails had been classified at the time they were sent. Hillary had previously argued that the emails had been classified after the fact, something that the FBI refuted.

“From the group of 30,000 emails returned to the State Department, 110 emails in 52 email chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received,” Comey said.

“Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification. Separate from those, about 2,000 additional e-mails were “up-classified” to make them Confidential; the information in those had not been classified at the time the e-mails were sent.

Comey also said that “they were extremely careless in their handling of” the information on Clinton’s servers. While he found no direct evidence that foreign governments or individuals had hacked into her email, he noted that she “also used her email extensively outside the United States,” raising the possibility that foreign actors were able to do so while Clinton traveled.

He added that such cases would usually involve “clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information; or vast quantities of materials exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct; or indications of disloyalty to the United States; or efforts to obstruct justice.” While I don’t wish to impugn Comey, one wonders just what his definitions of “efforts to obstruct justice” or “vast quantities of materials exposed” are. They’re probably different than yours. So, just so we’re clear: Hillary Clinton broke the law, she apparently meant to break the law, but that isn’t enough to bring charges.
