“After consolidating power in Washington, D.C. and state capitals under President-elect Donald Trump, Republicans are moving to prevent large cities dominated by Democrats from enacting sweeping liberal agendas,” The Hill reports’.

“Republican state legislatures are planning so-called preemption laws, which prevent cities and counties from passing new measures governing everything from taxes to environmental regulations and social issues.”

Republicans War On The Poor – ‘Planned Parenthood would lose funding as part of Obamacare repeal, Ryan says’

So……..you take away poor people’s health care and then cut the federal budget that would help poor people get birth control, breast and cancer screenings and more.

But there is no Republican War On The Poor.

‘Planned Parenthood estimated that roughly 40 percent of its funding would be at risk should defunding legislation become law’.

‘The group reported receiving $553 million in government funding in 2014, about half of its total revenue’.

‘Republicans plan to strip Planned Parenthood of hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding as part of their rapid push to repeal President Obama’s health-care reforms, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Thursday’.

‘Ryan said a defunding measure would appear in a special fast-track bill that is expected to pass Congress as soon as next month: “Planned Parenthood legislation would be in our reconciliation bill,” he said at a news conference, in response to a question about plans to defund the organization’.

“It’s Obama’s Fault” – ‘Conservatives ready to support $1 trillion hole in the budget’

Get ready to hear that a LOT!

And to pay for the coming YUGE! deficit and debt, Republicans will take health care away from 20+million poor Americans, cut Medicare benefits, increase Medicare enrollment age, cut Medicaid funding, cut welfare funding, cut unemployment funding and cut food stamps funding because – well the poor are the reason we have such large deficits and debt……

‘Some of the most conservative members of Congress say they are ready to vote for a budget that would — at least on paper — balloon the deficit to more than $1 trillion by the end of the decade, all for the sake of eventually repealing the Affordable Care Act’.

‘In a dramatic reversal, many members of the hard-line House Freedom Caucus said Thursday they are prepared later this month to support a budget measure that would explode the deficit and increase the public debt to more than $29.1 trillion by 2026, figures contained in the budget resolution itself’.

Republicans Governing By Threats – ‘House GOP Revives Obscure Rule to Slash Pay’

republicans7

Now if some government worker objects to anything – whistle blows, gives testimony in Congress critical of Republicans, gives an interview critical of Republicans…..Republicans can just cut their pay……to $1.00.

Yes…..That Makes America Great Again……

January 5, 2017 By Taegan Goddard

“House Republicans this week reinstated an arcane procedural rule that enables lawmakers to reach deep into the budget and slash the pay of an individual federal worker — down to a $1 — a move that threatens to upend the 130-year-old civil service,” the Washington Post reports’.

“The Holman Rule, named after an Indiana congressman who devised it in 1876, empowers any member of Congress to offer an amendment to an appropriations bill that targets a specific government employee or program.”

Now turn it around.

What if Hillary suggested that someone should shot Donald Trump.

Do you seriously think that the (cough) ‘news’ media would ever – EVER stop asking her about it?

Making America A Joke….The Shorter Of Trump’s Immigration (cough) ‘policy’ – ‘Trump’s Immigration Speech Summarized: Immigrants Are Going To Murder You’

trump border

The short short is if you have brown skin – you will be watched – constantly……..

Donald Trump could have been stopped a year ago if the press (so eager for ratings that it gave Trump 100’s of hours of free exposure) had simply asked Donald ‘how’ and kept asking until he gave details.

**22% of undocumented people are Asians.
Are they also ‘murders and rapists’?

**Where do you build the wall to ‘stop’ them?

**How do you identify someone that is undocumented?
Ask everyone, including all us white people for our Birth Certificates?
Or……your good old fashioned, back to the 50’s racial profiling?

** How do you deport 2 million ‘criminals’ your first day in office.
There is not enough law enforcement manpower to do it.
The court systems would be jammed for a year.
And how does deporting 2 million and more in your estimate, ‘criminals – stop crime?
White people born in AMerica don’t commit crime?????

**How do you define a Country where “adequate screening cannot occur”?

**How do you define ‘ideological certification’?
Are we going to profile different religions as well as different races?
But they didn’t.

Donald Trump –

#1 –
“Number one, are you ready? Are you ready”?

“We will build a great wall along the southern border”.

“And Mexico will pay for the wall”.

“One hundred percent. They don’t know it yet, but they’re going to pay for it”.
(This a mere 4 hours after having a private meeting the the President of Mexico)
#2 –
“Number two, we are going to end catch and release”.

“Under my administration, anyone who illegally crosses the border will be detained until they are removed out of our country and back to the country from which they came”.

“And they’ll be brought great distances. We’re not dropping them right across. They learned that. President Eisenhower”.
**Google Operation Wetback**

“We will take them great distances. But we will take them to the country where they came from, O.K.”?
#3 –
“Number three. Zero tolerance for criminal aliens. Zero. Zero”.

“According to federal data, there are at least two million criminal aliens now inside of our country. We will begin moving them out day one. In joint operation with local, state, and federal law enforcement”.

“Beyond the two million, and there are vast numbers of additional criminal illegal immigrants who have fled, but their days have run out in this country. The crime will stop. They’re going to be gone. It will be over”.

“Moving forward. We will issue detainers for illegal immigrants who are arrested for any crime whatsoever, and they will be placed into immediate removal proceedings if we even have to do that”.

“We will restore the highly successful Secure Communities Program”.(1)

“We’re going to triple the number of ICE deportation officers”.

“Within ICE I am going to create a new special deportation task force focused on identifying and quickly removing the most dangerous criminal illegal immigrants in America”.

“We’re also going to hire 5,000 more Border Patrol agents”.

#4 –
“Number four, block funding for sanctuary cities. We block the funding. No more funds”.

#5 –
” Number five, cancel unconstitutional executive orders and enforce all immigration laws”.

#6 –
“Number six, we are going to suspend the issuance of visas to any place where adequate screening cannot occur”.

“Homeland Security and the Department of Justice to begin a comprehensive review of these cases in order to develop a list of regions and countries from which immigration must be suspended until proven and effective vetting mechanisms can be put in place”.

“I call it extreme vetting right”.

“For the price of resettling one refugee in the United States, 12 could be resettled in a safe zone in their home region. We have to build safe zones and we’ll get the money from Gulf states. We don’t want to put up the money”.

“But we will get the money from Gulf states and others. We’ll supervise it”.

“Another reform involves new screening tests for all applicants that include, and this is so important, especially if you get the right people. And we will get the right people”.

“An ideological certification to make sure that those we are admitting to our country share our values and love our people”.

“Applicants will be asked their views about honor killings, about respect for women and gays and minorities. Attitudes on radical Islam, and many other topics as part of this vetting procedure. And if we have the right people doing it, believe me, very, very few will slip through the cracks”.

#7 –
“Number seven, we will insure that other countries take their people back when they order them deported”.
**Google ‘political asylum’.

#8 –
“Number eight, we will finally complete the biometric entry-exit visa tracking system which we need desperately”.
**See (2) Below

#9 –
“Number nine, we will turn off the jobs and benefits magnet.

“We will ensure that E-Verify is used to the fullest extent possible under existing law, and we will work with Congress to strengthen and expand its use across the country”.
#10 –
“Number 10, we will reform legal immigration to serve the best interests of America and its workers, the forgotten people. Workers. We’re going to take care of our workers”.

“To choose immigrants based on merit. Merit, skill, and proficiency. Doesn’t that sound nice? And to establish new immigration controls to boost wages and to ensure that open jobs are offered to American workers first. And that in particular African-American and Latino workers who are being shut out in this process so unfairly”.

**See – ‘Profiling and pretextual arrests. There is a concern that police officers working in areas that have Secure Communities in their local jails may have an incentive, or at least the ability, to make arrests based on race or ethnicity, or to make pretextual arrests of persons they suspect to be in violation of immigration laws, in order to have them run through immigration databases once they are jailed’.
**And – ‘Lack of Oversight and Transparency. There has been a marked lack of transparency about the Secure Communities program, and information obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request indicates that ICE has mislead the public about various aspects of the program’.

(2) –
The nation’s first secretary of Homeland Security, Tom Ridge, said his department ran into fierce resistance from airlines and airports that did not want to spend the money associated with adding the new technology and reconfiguring airports to accommodate the program.

“One of my great frustrations is the failure to reach any agreement with the airlines and airport authorities and, quite frankly, the failure broadly of Congress to appreciate the importance of biometrics,” Ridge said. “The further away we got from 9/11, the less interested Congress was in insisting that at least an airport exit system be developed. We just lost our will along the way.”

Ridge’s successor, Michael Chertoff, said the basic architecture of airports proved one of the biggest obstacles.

“If you go to European airports, the international departure area is separate,” Chertoff said. “You have to go through a border control exit. Everything funnels through there. Most of our airports aren’t configured that way.”

A 2008 Homeland Security estimate found that setting up biometric-capturing technology at all the nation’s air and seaports would cost between $3.1 and $6.4 billion. The estimate did not attempt to calculate the costs of adding similar technology at the nation’s land ports of entry, which account for 79% of the people who enter the U.S.

Making America Great – ‘Trump Ally: No Voting Rights For Women Using Free Birth Control & Welfare Recipients’

1root

Well that’s just crazy talk….right?

Deporting 11 million undocumented…….crazy talk….?

Banning Muslims……crazy talk…..?

Asking why he couldn’t use nukes……crazy talk…..?

******************************
‘Root said that he had recently seen a map on the internet showing that if only “taxpayers” had been allowed to vote, the 2012 election would have been “a Republican sweep.”

‘Wayne Allyn Root, a Donald Trump admirer who often claims to be in frequent contact with the GOP candidate has led campaign rallies for him in Nevada, said yesterday that people who receive federal benefits such as Medicaid, welfare and food stamps should lose their right to vote, as should women who use “free contraception” under the Affordable Care Act’.

‘Root’s plan would cut a large swath of Americans from the voter rolls: Roughly one in five Americans benefit from means-tested benefit programs, while 67 percent of women with private health insurance use copay-free contraception through the Affordable Care Act (which, by the way, is paid for by insurance companies, not by the federal government)’.

‘Root told Virginia radio host Rob Schilling yesterday that much of the energy behind Trump’s campaign, as he discusses in his new book “Angry White Male,” is that the country is “evenly divided between the makers and the takers,” so “the middle class is basically paying, paying, paying and the poor get everything free, and it’s a disaster.”
