Maybe they think we already built the wall.

The head of the Department of Homeland Security reported that recorded illegal Mexican border crossings plummeted by almost 72 percent since December, to mark the lowest monthly figure in over 17 years, this March. The number of people caught crossing the border illegally fell to 12,000, last month.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said that the sharp decline in arrests is “no accident” and gave credit to Trump’s approach towards illegal immigration. He reported the figures in written testimony to a Senate committee ahead of an appearance on Wednesday.

The Washington Times also reported that former Border Patrol Chief David Aguilar, on Tuesday, told the Senate Homeland Security Committee that arrests declined 67 percent in March.

“This administration has said we’re going to address illegal immigration,” he told senators. “ICE has started working in the interior, unlike other times. So that message resonates.”

Several commentators credited President Donald Trump’s tough stance on immigration throughout the 2016 presidential campaign as the primary reason for the decline.

“Pat & Stu,” a radio show, discussed on Wednesday, that the decline in illegal border crossings could be temporary while Mexicans wait to see how US policies on immigration change under the new administration, before risking illegal entry. However, like many others, the hosts were quite pleased with the progress on curtailing the influx of illegal immigrants.

“The tough talk, I think, is a good short term thing here. And look, that’s better than what we’ve had; there’s no doubt about that. That goes back to not only the previous president but the one before that, and almost everybody else, really. I mean even if you go back to Reagan, this was his big problem issue for a lot of conservatives. So we’ll see what happens. We’ll see if the rhetoric matches up to the actions, which we have not seen yet,” Stu said.

While the Trump administration has not yet changed anything with regards to border patrolling, President Trump’s tough stance on immigration, including his plans to build a wall, and increased efforts to arrest illegal immigrants already living in the country are believed to have acted as deterrents.

However, it’s unclear if the decline in the number of illegal crossings will continue. The number of people caught trying to illegal cross the border into the US typically increases as the weather begins to warm, but arrests during the generally slower winter months were quite high than in previous years, so it is possible that many migrants rushed to the border before Trump took charge of the White House.

Yeah dude, you may want to start running now.

The Islamic State group, more commonly known as ISIS, released a recorded statement on Tuesday, mocking Donald Trump; saying the United States was drowning and “being run by an idiot.”

In its first official statement on the new president of the United States since he took office in January, the terrorist group’s new spokesman, Abu Hassan al-Muhajer, said in the audio recording that America had “drowned” and was being ruled by someone who “does not know what Syria or Iraq or Islam is.”

“America you have drowned and there is no saviour, and you have become prey for the soldiers of the caliphate in every part of the earth, you are bankrupt and the signs of your demise are evident to every eye,” al-Muhajer said

“There is no more evidence than (that) you being run by an idiot who does not know what Syria or Iraq or Islam is.

“Die of spite America, die of spite, a nation where both young and old are racing to die in the name of God will not be defeated.”

The 37-minute audio recording was released on the messaging website Telegram. In the statement, al-Muhajer praised the recent terrorist attacks in Europe and called on IS’s followers to carry out further such attacks in the US, Russia, and European countries to relieve pressure on the group in Syria and Iraq, where it had gained control of large areas initially.

He said that the current situation in Iraq, in which ISIS is engaged in heavy clashes with the Iraqi army in Mosul, the terrorist organization’s last stronghold in Iraq, marked “the greatest period in our jihad…and the most dangerous turning point in our jihad.”

Al-Muhajer claimed that IS would continue to maintain its stronghold in Yemen, Iraq, and Syria and would never be driven from the Middle East.

A pro-ISIS group, The United Cyber Caliphate (UCC) hacking group, also released a video for its supporters around the world. They released names of 8700 people on a kill list, instructing followers to “kill [those on the list] where you find them.”

In terms of the message to Donald Trump, they said:

“We have a message to the people of the U.S., and most importantly, your President Trump:

“Know that we will continue to wage war against you, know that your counter attacks only make us stronger.

“The UCC will start a new step in this war against you, we call #DemolishingFences.

“So expect us soon Insha’Allah!”

During last year’s presidential election campaign, the group also released a document calling Mr. Trump “impulsive and unpredictable.”

Correct or not, Donald Trump is a man that shouldn’t be prodded or mocked.  ISIS leaders may come to quickly regret their message.

Susan Rice wishes upon a spy satellite: "I want to be a real spy"

Barack Obama’s National Security Advisory, Susan Rice, has been outed by reporters as being behind the order to “unmask” Trump campaign staffers.

The spying operation goes as far back as July of 2016 and picked up pace following Donald Trump’s win on Election Day.

Rice previously denied involvement saying she “knew nothing” about the spying.

Rice also told the public that the attack of a United States embassy in Benghazi was instigated by a “heinous and offensive video.”

That turned out to be a lie.

But Susan Rice is REALLY good at lying.

Days before she was exposed as the source behind the spying order, the former Ambassador to the United Nations (yes this woman represented us in the UN), penned a piece in the Washington Post lambasting Trump’s “utterly ridiculous” insinuation that the British spied on the campaign.

Susan Rice went on to write in a serious tone:

The foundation of the United States’ unrivaled global leadership rests only in part on our military might, the strength of our economy and the power of our ideals. It is also grounded in the perception that the United States is steady, rational and fact-based. To lead effectively, the United States must maintain respect and trust. So, when a White House deliberately dissembles and serially contorts the facts, its actions pose a serious risk to America’s global leadership, among friends and adversaries alike.

Candidly, either this crazy chick likely believes what she’s writing or is so devoid of principles that lying is so commonplace to her, that she thought nothing of her words.

But to write this op/ed in a prominent publication was brazen.

It’s comparable to John Wayne Gacy writing a column to say that bi-sexual clowns make the best friends . . . just before they found bodies in his crawl space.

Susan Rice’s lack of any ethical foundation sends a very clear message that Trump and other leaders appear to ignore: No one can be trusted with this power.

While Congressional leaders talk about “tightening procedures” on who can be “unmasked” the only real solution is to do this: STOP SPYING ON AMERICANS!

No matter who is in power, the power to spy on Americans will be abused in some manner . . . whether legally or illegally.

The only way to prevent future abuses is to adhere to the Fourth Amendment and conduct “searches” only with probable cause that is supported by a true Court of Law (not a secret FISA court).

Otherwise, while it’s Susan Rice today, tomorrow it could be some Trump official.

If that doesn’t get you scratching your head, imagine California’s Jerry Brown being sworn in on January 20, 2021. Could his administration be trusted?

Stranger things have happened.

Please add your comments below.

ISIS should think twice about poking the bear.

Another day, another attack by the Islamic State.

This time, a blast ripped through a subway train in St. Petersburg, Russia.

At least ten are dead and another 50 are injured.

While Russian President Vladimir Putin was reserved and did not want to point to terrorism until the bombing was investigated, members of ISIS are already cheering.

Since 2013, at least 3,867 people have been killed in ISIS terror attacks and many thousands more have been injured.

So far in 2017, at least 344 people have been killed including one American in the recent attack in London.

In 2015, 14 Americans were killed in San Bernardino by radical Islamic terrorists and another 24 were injured.

Earlier in 2015, two ISIS members opened fire on police officers in Garland, Texas who are guarding an art exhibit that featured cartoon images of Muhammad. Thanks to the quick draws of the Texas lawmen, the Islamic terrorists were the only ones to lose their lives that day.

A similar incident happened in Queens New York months before the Texas incident and the ISIS convert was shot dead.

And then you have the Boston Bombing where six people were killed. The bombing was committed by the Tsarnaev brothers who were found to have ties to an ISIS-linked mosque.

Russia is of course no stranger to Islamic terrorism.

In October of 2015, 224 passengers of a Metrojet flight were shot down enroute to St. Petersburg. ISIS took responsibility for the bombing and even posted a picture of the device used in the explosion.

While the previous presidential administration never wanted to admit it, ISIS and its radical Islamic offshoots are at war with the world.

The strategy of the Obama Administration was to ignore the violence until the groups died out through lack of funding or interest. The lack of action led to an explosive growth with the terrorist group gaining complete takeovers of land in several nations.

Even on social media, the growth is evident with pro-ISIS tweets increasing by 600% within the last year alone.

In January of this year, Trump had hoped that Russian and U.S. forces could “go out together and knock the hell out of ISIS.”

But that was before Democrat leaders began their witch-hunt over alleged Russian influence in the Presidential Election.

Now, with the media hounding the subject 24/7 and Trump’s own Federal Bureau of Investigation investigating his campaign’s links to Russia, little action is likely to happen.

By chilling the relationship between Russia and the United States with unfounded acquisition of impropriety, there is only one true winner: ISIS.

If Trump and Putin made the commitment to wipe out ISIS, the terrorist group’s time on this earth would be limited, regardless of where they chose to hide. If one doubts that, they should ask a WWII Nazi — if they can find one.

What's that saying? Never bring stupidity to a gun fight?

In a case that has surprised the entire nation since it happened last week; Zachary Peters, a twenty-three year old, shot and killed three home invaders with an AR-15 rifle at his parents’ home in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

Elizabeth Marie Rodriguez, 21, is believed to have planned the robbery and also admitted to being the getaway driver for the burglars. She drove the three boys to the house and waited outside to drive them away. Reportedly, Rodriguez made several deliveries to the house and knew the owner by name.

Even though almost everyone, including law enforcement agencies, unanimously agree that Zachary shot the three teenage boys out of self-defense, the grandfather of one of the suspects is now speaking out. Currently, there are no charges being filed against Peters, who fatally shot and killed Jaycob Woodruff, 16, Jacob Redfearn, 17, and Maxwell Cook, 19.

Police say, Peters shot each of the burglars only once in the chest but that was quite effective at eliminating the threat. Even though one of the burglars crawled over 100 yards outside the house, he succumbed to the gunshot wound on the driveway. Peters insists that he did not intend to kill anyone and only wanted to defend himself and his family.

However, Jacob Redfearn’s grandfather believes Peters actions were a result of rash decision making and he should not have resorted to shooting with an AR-15 rifle.

“What these three boys did was stupid,” Leroy Schumacher said. “They knew they could be punished for it but they did not deserve to die,” he continued.

Comparing his grandchildren and his accomplices’ brass knuckles against an AR-15 rifle, Schumacher was clearly displeased with the way they had been shot and killed.

“Brass knuckles against an AR-15, come on, who was afraid for their life?” said Schumacher, “There’s got to be a limit to that law, I mean he shot all three of them; there was no need for that.”

Did Peters use excessive force in defending his life and home? Comment below.

Hillary had a few of these.

In what President Trump has, himself, described as a ‘witch hunt’ of ‘historic proportion,’ on Friday, March 31, 2017, said that his former national security adviser is right to ask for immunity in exchange for answering questions related to Russia’s alleged ties to the Trump campaign team.

Mike Flynn, a retired United States Army lieutenant general, and President Trump’s first national security adviser, saw his offer to testify in the congressional probe into Russia’s potential connection with the Trump campaign team, in return for protection against unfair prosecution, be backed by the president himself.

Indicating that the retired general wants immunity, Flynn’s attorney said on Thursday that he is currently in discussion with the House and Senate intelligence committees.

Attorney Robert Kelner said that Flynn “certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit,” but appealed that he’s operating in a “highly politicized, witch hunt environment” and wants assurances.

Trump backed Flynn’s demand today.

“Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!” he tweeted today.

The Associated Press has also reported that a congressional aide confirmed discussions with the Senate Intelligence Committee involved immunity.

The House and Senate intelligence committees are probing into claims of Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election and the alleged ties between Trump’s aides and Moscow. FBI and both the committees are also scrutinizing Flynn’s ties to Russia.

In recent weeks, four other Trump associates have agreed to talk to the committees. As of Wednesday, the Senate intelligence had requested to interview 20 people related to the investigation.

On the flip side of the case, Trump and allies say that the leaking of sensitive information and the previous administration’s surveillance of Trump’s team is a much bigger problem. While FBI Director James Comey has denied the allegations of wiretapping Trump’s campaign ordered by former president Barack Obama, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, stated that he has found out some communication between the Trump team was incidentally collected during the transition.

No, not again!

Judicial Watch today released 1,184 pages of State Department records, including previously unreleased Hillary Clinton email exchanges, revealing additional instances of Abedin and Hillary Clinton sending classified information through unsecured email accounts and contributors being given special access to the former secretary of state.

The emails, were obtained in response to a court order from a May 5, 2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department after it failed to respond to a March 18 FOIA request (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00684)). The lawsuit seeks:

  • All emails of official State Department business received or sent by former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin from January 1, 2009 through February 1, 2013 using a non-“state.gov” email address.

The records contain 29 previously undisclosed Clinton emails – of a total of which is now at least 288 emails that were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department. This further appears to contradict statements by Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department. Two of these emails are now available on the State Department’s website.

In a February 2010 email exchange Jake Sullivan, then-Deputy Chief of Staff to Clinton, sent to Clinton’s and Abedin’s unsecure email accounts information that the State Department has classified as the material includes information “to be kept secret in the interest of national defense or foreign policy; foreign relations or foreign activities of the US, including confidential sources.” The redacted information concerns “former GTMO [Guantanamo] detainee Binyam Mohamed” and Mohamed’s request for “various classified intelligence documents” that contained U.S. intelligence information related to his detention before he was taken to Guantanamo.

In April 2010, Sid Blumenthal sent two email memos to Clinton containing information now classified.  Clinton forwarded this material to Abedin’s unsecure email account. The classified information, which Clinton asks Abedin to print off for her, concerns the change of government in the Kyrgyz Republic.

In other emails, Clinton’s “final” schedules with specific details concerning her whereabouts were transmitted by Lona Valmoro to the unsecure emails accounts of Clinton Foundation officials Doug Band, Terry Krivnic Margaret Steenberg and others, and forwarded to Abedin’s unsecure email account.

In a March 15, 2010, exchange, Band forwarded to Abedin a request for help from Philip Levine, who is presumably the mayor of Miami Beach.  Reports said Levine had been a fundraiser for the Clintons since the 1990s.

The newly obtained emails also reveal some unsuccessful efforts to set up phone meetings for Clinton with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

In a February 23, 2010, email, ambassador and Clinton friend Capricia Marshall asked Band and Abedin to work with her to plan Bill and Hillary Clinton’s funeral arrangements and notes: “once affirmed it will be very hard for someone to deny the type of ceremony she [Hillary] wanted – as well I understand that the President can request certain arrangements for her that she/her rep cannot (ie if you want the motorcade to go through DC – stop somewhere).”

A March 9, 2010, email exchange between Abedin and Band reveals some tension between Clinton’s top personal aide and the former secretary of state’s chief of staff, Cheryl Mills. The apparent rift was revealed when Chelsea Clinton asked Band if he could arrange a White House tour for a female Haitian-American sailor from the USS Comfort.  Band passed the request to Abedin, who replied to Band: “I don’t want to get cross wise with cdm [Cheryl Mills] on anything Haiti related” and “HAVE YOU MET CHERYL MILLS? [Emphasis in original] you have no idea.”

“These emails are yet more evidence of Hillary Clinton’s casual and repeated violations of laws relating to the handling of classified information,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, “The Justice Department should finally begin an independent investigation into the Clinton email matter.”

Will Sanctuary Cities face a Trumpocalypse?

With the president threatening to withhold federal grants and funds to cities that refuse cooperation, big city mayors and immigration activists are trying their level best to push back at the administration’s attempts to make good of one of President Trump’s major campaign promises.

Cities refusing to cooperate with federal immigration authorities start feeling the Trump administration’s wrath. What is being seen as a move to put public pressure on sanctuary cities, the Department of Homeland Security released its first report on Monday, listing jurisdictions that refuse to cooperate with federal authorities.

The report lists counties and cities that refused requests from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to detain individuals even though they could have been released under normal circumstances.

Sanctuary cities are used to describe communities that refuse to work with ICE officials after detaining illegal immigrants. According to federal law, they are required to inform the feds whenever they have an illegal immigrant in custody, even if he or she is not guilty of any crime.

While the US Conference of Mayors (USCM) questioned the truthfulness of ICE detainers and the DHS report on Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday had already sent out a warning, saying, “Failure to deport aliens who are convicted of criminal offenses puts whole communities at risk, especially immigrant communities in the very sanctuary jurisdictions that seek to protect the perpetrators.”

Sessions’ statement, at a White House press briefing, sent a strong message to the nation that the Trump administration is indeed serious about its actions against illegal immigrants. The president’s team hopes to make its case against sanctuary cities with stats and anecdotes, clearly showing that it is the local government policies that are putting the lives of Americans at risk.

The White House has shown no sign of backing off the tough campaign promise Trump made. Weeks before Sessions’ warning that the Department of Justice would cut off federal funding to cities that refuse to cooperate, the Department of Homeland Security started publishing a list of crimes committed by illegal immigrants.

Supporters of the new policies hailed Sessions’ declaration.

“It’s very refreshing that under the Trump administration policies the public is now able to find out exactly what kind of individuals are being protected from immigration enforcement and released by the sanctuaries,” said Jessica Vaughan, of the Center for Immigration Studies. “The public now can hold their local officials accountable for the sanctuary policy.”

Several big cities, including New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, as well as dozens and possibly hundreds of smaller counties, cities and towns, also have refused to notify ICE, which can then come and take custody of the illegal immigrant, possibly for deportation.

Creep

The teenage illegal immigrants charged with raping a 14-year-old girl in the bathroom of a Maryland public high school last week entered the United States under an Obama program that’s accommodated tens of thousands of Central American youths who crossed the Mexican border. The administration coined them Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) and portrayed them as innocent, desperate kids fleeing violence and famine in their homeland. Most are from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala and the influx has overwhelmed border agents, government health agencies and military bases that serve as shelters not to mention public schools nationwide.

This week two of the UACs protected by Obama’s outlaw amnesty measures were charged with the rape of a ninth-grader at Rockville High School in Montgomery County, a Maryland jurisdiction that offers illegal aliens sanctuary. The illegal immigrants, 17-year-old Jose Montano and 18-year-old Henry Sanchez, were both charged with first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sexual offense. Both illegal aliens were in the ninth grade like their victim, according local news reports. Montano came to the U.S. from El Salvador and Sanchez, who reportedly had been ordered deported, from Guatemala. Both are being held without bail. Several local media outlets printed a letter sent to parents by the school district describing the rape as a “serious incident” that “is being addressed.”

Back in the summer of 2014, when the first batch of UACs began arriving, Judicial Watch reported that many were not harmless children fleeing violence as the media was largely reporting. Border Patrol sources on the ground divulged that a lot of the Central Americans were in their late teens and had ties to violent gang members and other criminal elements. Federal authorities handling the crisis offered a vastly different depiction than the government’s official version in the media. From the start, the barrage of illegal alien minors created an out-of-control disaster with jam-packed holding centers, rampant diseases and sexually active teenagers at a Nogales facility that housed the first arrivals, Homeland Security sources told Judicial Watch.

A few weeks after the barrage of UACs slammed border officials, Homeland Security sources told Judicial Watch that the nation’s most violent street gangs—including Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13)—were actively recruiting new members at shelters housing illegal immigrant minors. In many cases they used Red Cross phones to communicate. The 18th Street gang also went on a recruiting frenzy at the various facilities housing the UACs, sources confirmed. The MS-13 is a feared street gang of mostly Central American illegal immigrants that’s spread throughout the U.S. and is renowned for drug distribution, murder, rape, robbery, home invasions, kidnappings, vandalism and other violent crimes. The Justice Department’s National Gang Intelligence Center (NGIC) says criminal street gangs like the MS-13 are responsible for the majority of violent crimes in the U.S. and are the primary distributors of most illicit drugs. The 18th Street gang is considered the largest organized gang in Los Angeles County with about 15,000 members that operate a number of criminal enterprises throughout the region.

Violent street gangs continue to be energized with new recruits provided by the steady flow of illegal immigrant minors protected under the egregious UAC initiative, according to various law enforcement sources. After a major gang bust in Massachusetts last year, federal prosecutors disclosed that MS-13 actively recruits members in high schools situated in communities with “significant immigrant populations from Central America.” The recruits are known as “paros” and they are typically 14 or 15 years old, according to the Department of Justice (DOJ). The Texas Department of Public Safety has also issued a disturbing report declaring that the MS-13 is a top tier gang thanks to the influx of illegal alien gang members that crossed into the state. The number of MS-13 members encountered by U.S. Border Patrol in the Rio Grande Valley sector has increased each year, accelerating in 2014 and coinciding with increased illegal immigration from Central America during the same period, the agency disclosed. This clearly refers to the UAC crisis that saw over 60,000 illegal immigrants—many with criminal histories—storm into the U.S. in a matter of months.

It took only a few hours.

Following the release of an undercover investigation by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, a representative for United Educators of San Francisco was put on administrative leave.

The union rep, Antonio Mankini, boasted to O’Keefe’s undercover journalists about how he can hurt kids and “never leave a mark.”

Mankini, a former teacher then bragged about how he “clotheslined” a kid and got away with it.

This is the second recent video released by Project Veritas and James O’Keefe that focuses on Teachers Unions.

In 2010, Project Veritas released a series of videos called “Teachers Unions Gone Wild” where a teacher claimed that she would “have to be in the hallway f’ing somebody” to get fired.
