Trump Administration Strips Funding For Illegal Aliens, Reallocates Money to Victims of Their Crimes

Speaking from the White House briefing room Tuesday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced the development of a new Immigration and Customs Enforcement office focused on helping victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens. The office will also assist family members of victims and is part of President Trump's recent executive action to bolster enforcement of immigration laws already on the books.

"This office [Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement Office] will facilitate the engagement with victims and their families to ensure questions and concerns regarding immigration enforcement efforts are addressed," Spicer said, adding that the establishment of the office fulfills a campaign promise.

Earlier today, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly detailed the new office in a memo to all relevant agencies inside DHS.

Attack on Robert E. Lee is an Assault on American History Itself


Early in February, the City Council of Charlottesville, Virginia voted 3-2 to remove a bronze equestrian monument to Robert E. Lee that stands in a downtown park named in his honor. Vice Mayor Wes Belamy, the council’s only African American member, led the effort to remove the statue.

In the end, this vote may be largely symbolic. Those opposed to the statue’s removal intend to file a lawsuit and point to a state statute that says Virginia cities have no authority over the war memorials they inherited from past generations. “If such are erected,” the law reads, “it shall be unlawful for the authorities of the locality, or any other person or persons, to disturb or interfere with any monuments or memorials so erected.”

Washington vs. Lincoln


Abraham Lincoln and George Washington stare silently at one another across the reflecting pool on the National Mall in Washington D.C., their paths inextricably linked by the historians who consider both to be the greatest presidents in American history.

One is a monument, a testament to the man and his influence on American history, the other a memorial to the Lincoln legacy, a persistent reminder of the new United States.

Washington was at one time the symbol of America. Even twenty years after his death, Americans painted their mantles black in mourning for the indispensable man, and many American families hung portraits of both George and Martha Washington in their homes.

Lincoln became a messianic figure, the martyr in a cause to forge a new nation based on the proposition that all men are created equal in an indissoluble union.

Honest Abe supplanted Honest George as the quintessential American, and thus two American symbols had been born.

A Dutch secret service agent who was part of the team responsible for protecting Geert Wilders, the frontrunner in next month's election, has been suspended on suspicion of leaking details to a criminal organization, the secret service said on Wednesday.

Wilders, who campaigns on an anti-Islam platform that includes closing mosques and banning immigration from Muslim countries that has led to the protection, condemned the alleged breach, saying he cannot function without adequate security.

Dutch newspapers De Telegraaf and NRC Handelsblad and the country's national broadcaster NOS identified the suspect as an experienced officer in his mid-30s, using his first name and last initial.

Secret Service chief Erik Akerboom said he could not confirm the man's identity but confirmed media reports he has a "Moroccan background".

Muslim Brotherhood Infiltration of U.S. National Security Agencies

A September 29, 2015, Center for Security Policy (CSP) article indicated that more than 50 U.S. intelligence analysts working with the U.S. Central Command had filed complaints with the Department of Defense Inspector General claiming that their analyses had been manipulated by senior officials to downplay the threat of ISIS and al-Qaeda in Syria. The alleged motive for these omissions and manipulations was to present a picture of ISIS, al-Qaeda, and the Syrian War that supported Obama Administration ideology and policy.

The CSP believed this was just the tip of the iceberg revealing a far more comprehensive agenda to present Islam as a Religion of Peace that had nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism or Jihad.

why trump has such wide appeal .... guest post, by "abraxas" ....

American Power picture.

this essay is by abraxas, and it goes a long way in explaining why donald trump is president of the united states.   and, why certain of us (and in no small numbers) will fight, as in "engage in mortal combat," to keep him president.

follows the essay:
For nearly all last year my friends begged me to listen to one of Trump's campaign speeches but I didn't.  I was too cynical to think any political harangue could be interesting - or believable.  But I was wrong and, Lord, did I discover that today when, for the first time in my life, I listened to him speak.  It blew my socks off.  I sat there in front of my computer screen listening to the live streaming of his speech on YouTube and my mouth dropped open in astonishment.  I had never heard such a riveting, thrilling speech in my life, the hairs on the back of my arms stood up.  This man has the power of speech and charisma I've not witnessed since the days of Reagan.  I was blown away, just blown away.

President Trump signed an executive order Thursday that targets transnational criminal organizations such as drug cartels and street gangs like MS-13, which is directed by its leaders in El Salvador.

An affidavit from an FBI special agent last year highlighted the transnational nature of MS-13.

“MS-13’s primary functioning principles center on violence, including murder, and a strict military structure of communication and command, headquartered in El Salvador and spread throughout various ‘programs’ and ‘cliques’ in the United States,” FBI special agent Jeffery Wood wrote.

Rezzas Abdulla of South Shields who spat in a baby's face

Vile racist Rezzas Abdulla spat in a baby’s face and told her shocked mum “white people shouldn’t breed” in a disgraceful street attack.

Hairdresser Rebecca Telford was wheeling nine-month-old Layla-Jean through South Shields when Abdulla launched the unprovoked afternoon assault, leaning into her pushchair to spit on her.

The little girl was left covered in saliva, which sprayed across her face in the disgusting attack.

A court heard Abdulla has previous for race hate offences and has “a problem with white women”.

But now the 33-year-old, who has some mental health issues, has walked free from Newcastle Crown Court on a suspended prison sentence.

NC: Real Men Provide, Real Women Appreciate It’ billboard sparks interest, protests

An anonymous seven-word message on a billboard in Winston-Salem, N.C., depicted in this video screen capture here, has piqued the curiosity and ire of passersby, some of whom are planning to protest with their own messages underneath the road sign on Sunday, Feb. 26. (WXII-TV)

An anonymous seven-word slogan on a billboard in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, has piqued the curiosity and ire of passersby with its simple but cryptic message: “Real men provide, Real women appreciate it,” reads the black text on a plain white background.

The Greensboro News & Record reported Wednesday that the advertising company that owns the sign says the client who paid for it wishes to remain anonymous, for now, although some kind of “announcement” is coming soon, according to company President Bill Whiteheart.

Whatever the organization is, it had at least $2,000 to drop on the ad. That’s the cost keeping the sign in place for the agreed-upon 30 days, Mr. Whiteheart told the News & Record.

H.R. 899, “The Department of Education shall terminate on December 31, 2018.”

Now is the time to End Fed Ed! Legislation was introduced in Congress last week by Representative Thomas Massie to shut down the unconstitutional U.S. Department of Education. Massie kept it as simple as possible with a single sentence for the bill, H.R. 899, “The Department of Education shall terminate on December 31, 2018.” Article I Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution provides a list of what the federal government is allowed to do and education is not included. Education belongs to the states; let’s turn it back over to them!

This means that states are the highest level of government that is permitted by the Constitution to be involved with education. However, parents have the basic right to control their children's education.

With immigration courts reaching a record backlog in 2016, Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly ordered Monday that illegal immigrants who have been in the U.S. for less than two years should be allowed to be deported without a court hearing.

Kelly signed two memos Monday that made significant changes to the nation’s immigration policy.

They ordered the immediate construction of a border wall, expanded the amount of local police who will enforce immigration law, and put every illegal immigrant — excluding those protected under President Obama’s executive amnesty — at risk of deportation.

Trump considers tax credit to channel public money to private schools

Via Billy

The Trump administration is considering a first-of-its-kind federal tax credit scholarship program that would channel billions of dollars to families from working-class households to enable their children to attend private schools, including religious schools.

The federal tax credit proposal is one of several ideas under review by the White House to fulfill Donald Trump’s campaign promise to promote the expansion of charter schools and vouchers that would allow families of low income to use public money for private school tuition, sources tell POLITICO. During a recent meeting with parents and teachers at the White House, Trump said he wants “every single disadvantaged child in America, no matter what their background or where they live, to have a choice about where they go to school.”

A federal appeals court in Maryland ruled Tuesday that semi-automatic rifles, commonly referred to as “military-style assault weapons,” are not protected under the Second Amendment.

The ruling came after the state’s so-called “assault weapons” ban was challenged on constitutional grounds. However, the court easily upheld the ban with a 10-4 vote.

Maryland’s gun ban also outlaws magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds.

Trump administration lifts transgender bathroom guidance

Trump Transgender

Transgender students on Wednesday lost federal protections that allowed them to use school bathrooms and locker rooms matching their gender identities, as the Trump administration stepped into a long-simmering national debate.

The administration came down on the side of states' rights, lifting Obama-era federal guidelines that had been characterized by Republicans as an example of overreach.

Without the Obama directive, it will be up to states and school districts to interpret federal anti-discrimination law and determine whether students should have access to restrooms in accordance with their expressed gender identity and not just their biological sex.

"This is an issue best solved at the state and local level," Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said.

"Schools, communities and families can find — and in many cases have found — solutions that protect all students."
