President Trump has had enough of a disinterested Congress and will go it alone to end the migrant crisis.
Trump has two problems to solve – the Democrats will not give him a political win heading into reelection. That is the sad reality in DC these days – politics and jockeying for 2020 drive all decisions.
The second problem Trump faces – our laws are as wide open as our borders. We made laws and rules governing asylum and immigration with the best intentions but certain groups have found ways to game the system. To legally game the system.
From CNN: President Donald Trump on Monday evening proposed sweeping changes to how the US treats asylum-seekers, including charging fees to file asylum applications and limiting access to work permits.
Trump has repeatedly railed against the rising number of asylum-seekers, suggesting many have been coached in order to win their claims, and this is the latest move from the administration to attempt to curtail migrants from claiming asylum.
In a memo for the attorney general and homeland security secretary, Trump orders them to develop policies to settle asylum applications within 180 days of filing; require a fee for asylum applications and work permit applications; and bar migrants who have entered or attempted to enter the US illegally from receiving work authorization before any relief or protection is granted.
The memo gives the Justice and Homeland Security departments 90 days to develop the proposals, but it is unclear how long it would take before any of the rules take effect. Any changes to asylum procedures are also certain to be challenged in federal court, where many of the administration’s immigration rules have been blocked.
The measures outlined in the memo would likely make it harder to apply for asylum by slapping a fee on applications and keeping some from working legally in the US “before any applicable application for relief or protection from removal has been granted.” It also notes that work authorization is to be stripped from migrants who are denied asylum or subject to a final order of removal.
“The purpose of this memorandum is to strengthen asylum procedures to safeguard our system against rampant abuse of our asylum process,” it reads.
In the memo, the President also cites his national emergency declaration, which allowed him to circumvent Congress and unlock money to build his signature border wall. “That emergency continues to grow increasingly severe,” it reads.
President Trump Just Made Trey Gowdy The Most Powerful Man In Capitol Hill
For five years, Trey Gowdy asked the Oval Office for the tools necessary to do his job properly, and for five years he was told “no” by the Obama administration.
One of the most difficult parts of Trey Gowdy’s job as congressional inquisitor is security clearance. When investigating people who held titles like “Secretary of State” and “Special Aide to the President” or even “President,” Gowdy runs into the issue of security clearance all the time.
It’s a matter of national security” has become a term Mr. Gowdy hears far too often. It is the single-best excuse Hillary Clinton and her lawyers have been able to come up with when they don’t have an actual answer to his questions.
President Trump has just removed that blockade. By executive order, Trey Gowdy has been given the highest security clearance possible. He could now sit in on presidential intel briefings if he felt he needed to.
California Democrat Arrested for Death Threats Against Trump’s FCC Chief and Family
A California Democrat was arrested Friday in Los Angeles for his threats to kill Trump administration FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, for his role in the Federal Communications Commission’s repealing of net neutrality regulations. The suspect threatened to kill Chairman Pai’s family, as well.
According to the prosecutor, 33-year-old Markara Man of Norwalk, California allegedly emailed messages to Chairman Pai’s three email accounts.
The first of three email messages accused Pai of being responsible for the alleged suicide by a child who was upset with the repeal of net neutrality regulations.
The second email contained the addresses of three locations in or around Arlington, Virginia, outside of Washington, D.C., and stated that he would kill the Chairman’s family members.
The third email had no text in it, but it did include an image depicting Chairman Pai and, in the foreground and slightly out of focus, a framed photograph of the FCC chairman and his family.
FBI agents were assigned to the case and traced the emails to Markara Man’s known residence in Norwalk, California. When the FBI agents initially confronted the suspect in May 2018, the suspect admitted to the agents that he indeed sent out email threatening Chairman Pai’s family. He attributed the motive for email threats to his anger over the repeal of the net neutrality regulations. He stated that he wished to “scare” Chairman Pai.
“Man was charged with threatening to murder a member of the immediate family of a U.S. official with the intent to intimidate or interfere with such official while engaged in the performance of official duties, or with the intent to retaliate against such official on account of the performance of official duties,” said G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, a recent Trump appointee.
If convicted, Man faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
According to Nancy McNamara, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office, “The FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office, the Federal Protective Service, and the Arlington County Police Department provided significant assistance in this investigation.”
“The concept of Net Neutrality lies at the heart of the Federal Communication Commission’s ongoing efforts to regulate Internet access. To its opponents, Net Neutrality is an Orwellian euphemism for regulatory overreach, couched in appealing language about the freedom of the Internet,” said technology expert John Hayward in Human Events.
Deep State Espionage: Obama Intelligence Chiefs Hacked Computer Of FISA Court Judge
With so much of the news coverage in America focusing on the Democratic Party’s plans to impeach President Donald Trump, as well their goal of raising taxes on the productive members of society in order to pay-off unproductive members who rely on socialist programs to barely survive, it’s no wonder most citizens don’t know what’s happening within the Deep State.
Case in point: There is now evidence being circulated by lawmakers in both Houses of Congress that strengthens allegations that former President Barack Obama’s two top intelligence officials, John Brennan and James Clapper, spearheaded the hacking of a computer used by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court’s Judge Reggie Walton, and went as far as hacking U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.
As more and more documents are released or leaked that are exposing the alleged Justice Roberts computer hacking by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) has rocked the corridors of power, but appears to be of little interest to the nation’s news people .
The fact that no court has held hearings regarding the obviously fraudulent FISA warrant applications to spy on lower-level Trump campaign worker Carter Page — and by extension other members of President Trump’s team — continues to be ignored by most news organizations who’ve decided changing American is more important than informing Americans.
And there’s more: James Comey’s henchmen at the FBI are proven to have covered it up. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has shown itself to be a hotbed of political treachery and narcissistic behavior.
One of the audio tapes made public by Federal Judge G. Murray Snow revealed that Brennan and Clapper particularly targeted and wiretapped Donald Trump a “zillion times.” Montgomery also contends that the government can plant files such as child pornography or state secrets on a target’s computer, setting up the owner of that device for blackmail or a bogus prosecution.
That hacking system, known as THE HAMMER, according to the audio tapes, accessed the phone calls, emails and bank accounts of millions of ordinary Americans. The tapes also reveal that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance court (FISA), Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, 156 other judges, members of Congress, and Donald J. Trump were targeted by the Hammer.
The tapes released by Federal Judge G. Murray Snow show real estate billionaire Timothy Blixseth explaining Brennan and Clapper’s surveillance program to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and detective Mike Zullo. The existence of this surveillance program has been corroborated by Wikileaks’ “Vault 7” release and by the public comments of former CIA and NSA contractor Dennis Montgomery, who says he worked on the program for Brennan and Clapper.
Montgomery has gone public with his claims exposing how the program was used to spy on President Donald Trump when he was a private citizen. Montgomery has gained immunity and desperately wants House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes or other lawmakers to call him to testify about what he knows.
On the explosive tapes, Blixseth walks Arpaio and Zullo through the details of the program on a computer screen. At one point, the three begin pulling up specific names of targeted individuals.
“You know who that guy is? That’s the head of the FISA court they hacked into, Reggie Walton,” Blixseth tells the investigators.
“John Roberts, the chief justice of the Supreme Court, was hacked,” Blixseth tells Arpaio and Zullo.
Insiders have always been skeptical of Roberts’ motives for siding with President Obama on the 2012 Obamacare case. While there’s still no available evidence that Roberts was blackmailed, the allegation that he was “hacked” by Obama officials provides some more context into the justice’s controversial career.
It’s believed that former FBI Director James Comey seized, destroyed or buried information that demonstrated this wide-ranging government surveillance operation targeting Donald Trump before he became president.
The founder of Judicial Watch and later Freedom Watch USA, Larry Klayman, attorney for former NSA and CIA contractor and whistleblower Dennis Montgomery, delivered to the FBI 47 hard drives and data amounting to more than 600 million pages of documentation on the surveillance scheme. Then-FBI director James Comey’s general counsel James Baker took the data into his possession, according to multiple sources. But despite possessing Montgomery’s bombshell whistleblower revelations, Comey never acted on or publicized the information.
Democrats Spend Father’s Day Attacking 13-Year-Old Barron Trump
As Americans celebrate the holiday of Father’s Day there are some that are using the occasion to rag on 13-year-old Barron Trump.
The reason they have given for their attacks is the fact that President Donald trump had a busy Father’s Day which started with him tweeting about things that were on his mind.
“Happy Father’s Day to all, including my worst and most vicious critics, of which there are fewer and fewer. This is a FANTASTIC time to be an American! KEEP AMERICA GREAT!” he said in one tweet, The Hill reported.

Then the president spent some time golfing with Sen. Lindsey Graham because, as the leader of the free world, he has some business to do.
“According to the White House pool, it appears the president is going to be spending Father’s Day golfing with Lindsey Graham,” Roll Call reporter Niels Lesniewski said.

The fact that his dad is busy on Father’s Day could have bugged Barron, and Democrats used that to needle him more.
Should children be off limits?

Why is it that the same people that were rightfully angry when the Obama kids were mentioned in negative ways have no problem using Barron Trump as one of their props? Stop being a hypocrite it’s an awful look.

Has Melania told him that they have a son? Perhaps Barron might enjoy the afternoon of golfing.

It is not the first time Barron has been attacked or harmed by Democrats. He was frightened when he caught a glimpse of Kathy Griffin holding his dad’s mock severed head.
And there was the time Democrats were thrilled at the idea of Barron becoming gay and marrying a Mexican immigrant.
Nothing is off limits for these people.
