'Illegal immigrants obtaining voting rights equals checkmate America! They win, we lose'
President Trump has long promised he
will secure the U.S.-Mexico border with a “big beautiful wall,” but a
major bargaining chip in his negotiations possibly could flip four or even five traditionally Republican-leaning states to Democrats in future elections.
Those states are: Texas, Arizona, Florida, Georgia and North Carolina.
Of the five, Texas, with 34 electoral votes, has the most impact on
presidential election outcomes. Florida has 29; North Carolina, 15;
Georgia, 16; and Arizona, 11. In 2016, Trump won Texas 52.2 percent to
Hillary Clinton’s 43.2 percent. His winning margin in Florida was
much tighter at 48.6 percent to 47.4 percent. Trump took North Carolina
with 49.8 percent to 46.2 percent; Arizona, 48.1 percent to 44.6
percent; and Georgia, 50.4 percent to Clinton’s 45.3 percent.
But political trends in those traditionally Republican-leaning states
could see a shift if illegal immigrants known as DREAMers, or illegal
immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as minors, are offered amnesty
and particularly if they’re eventually given voting rights. Those fives
states host large numbers DREAMers, as Fortune magazine reported last January.
A historian in Maryland pleaded guilty Thursday to theft after being

A Louisiana school board president drew criticism
Wednesday for his response to a video that shows a female teacher being
forcibly removed from a school board meeting after questioning the
school superintendent’s pay raise.

“Everybody wants to side on the poor little woman who
got thrown out,” Anthony Fontana, the Vermilion Parish School Board
president, told WAFB in a phone interview. “Well, she made a choice.
She could have walked out and nothing would have happened.”
Fontana said the public’s reaction to the video has been swift.
Russiagate originated in a conspiracy between the military/security
complex, the Clinton-controlled Democratic National Committee, and the
liberal/progressive/left. The goal of the military/security complex is
to protect its out-sized budget and power by preventing President Trump
from normalizing relations with Russia. Hillary and the DNC want to
explain away their election loss by blaming a Trump/Putin conspiracy to
steal the election. The liberal/progressive/left want Trump driven from
As the presstitutes are aligned with the military/security complex,
Hillary and the DNC, and the liberal/progressive/left, the Russiagate
orchestration is a powerful conspiracy against the president of the
United States and the “deplorables” who elected him. Nevertheless, the
Russiagate Conspiracy has fallen apart and has now been turned against
Ecuador has granted citizenship to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange

Foreign Minister Maria Fernanda Espinosa said officials accepted
Assange’s request for naturalization in December, and they continue to

“What naturalization does is provide the asylum seeker another layer of protection,” Espinosa said.
Twitter direct messaging engineer Pranay Singh admitted to
mass-banning accounts that express interest in God, guns, and America,
during a Project Veritas investigation.
“Just go to a random [Trump] tweet and just look at the followers.
They’ll all be like, guns, God, ‘Merica, and with the American flag and
the cross,” declared Singh, who was secretly recorded by Project Veritas reporters. “Like, who says that? Who talks like that? It’s for sure a bot.”
After being asked whether he could get rid of the accounts, he
replied, “Yeah. You just delete them, but, like, the problem is there
are hundreds of thousands of them, so you’ve got to, like, write
algorithms that do it for you.”
Fox News host Sean Hannity claims he has sources indicating the
dossier used by officials to spy on Donald Trump was paid for either by
former FBI Director James Comey or FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
Either would constitute a legitimate bombshell.
Correspondent Sara Carter
reports that the “unverified dossier” was used by the FBI as cause “to
gain approval from a secret court to monitor members of Trump’s team.”
The guidelines out this morning
would allow states to require that some Medicaid enrollees hold a job,
participate in volunteer work, or enroll in classes or work training for
a certain number of hours each week. States could choose to include
caregiving for a disabled child or elderly adult as meeting the
requirement. "This is in response to proposals we are receiving from
states. It is entirely optional for states," Seema Verma, administrator
for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said in a phone call
with reporters Wednesday. "This is in no way a requirement." The
guidance contains numerous exemptions, and states cannot enact programs
until they are approved through a waiver by CMS.
would not need to abide by the stipulations if they are elderly,
disabled, children, or pregnant. It also allows states to determine that
specific populations are medically frail, such as providing exemptions
for people who are undergoing treatment for an opioid addiction. Ten
states — Arizona, Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, New
Hampshire, North Carolina, Utah, and Wisconsin — have asked to be
allowed to implement the requirement. Verma declined to say which
waivers were set to be approved, but did allow that "now that we have
taken this big important step, we expect that you will hear from us on
waivers in short order."
Conservative author Ann Coulter fawned over President Trump after he
reportedly referred to Haiti, El Savaldor, and multiple African nations
as “shithole countries” in a meeting with lawmakers Thursday.
"He's trying to win me back," Coulter tweeted about the president's remarks.
The number of crimes committed by “foreigners” in Austria
increased to 40 percent of the total in 2016, a new government report
says. Interior Minister Herbert Kickl says a “strict asylum policy” is
needed to tackle the issue.
In 2016, some 500,000 offenses were registered in Austria, with 40 percent of them being committed by “foreigners,”
a new security report presented by the Interior Ministry says.
According to Kickl, the number of foreign offenders increased by 13
The Austrian vice chancellor and head of the right-wing
populist Freedom Party (FPO), Heinz-Christian Strache, also told
journalists following the government meeting that asylum seekers
accounted for almost 46 percent of foreign offenders. He described the
figure as “significant” and called for a stricter refugee policy.
