OBAMA: ‘Migrant’ Kids ‘Who Do Not Have Proper Claims Will Be Repatriated’

Barack Obama, Donald Trump, IMMIGRATION, Kids, Taxation

So glad my main 2020 election issues are being addressed, and that campaign promises are being fulfilled so splendidly. These are two snacks a day for illegal migrant children (whom Obama instructed to go home.) Plus recreation, education and other stuff to the tune $4.5 billion.

My tongue is firmly in my cheek when I say these are tax dollars well-spent. After all, Americans pay taxes so that their government may look after The World.

Listen to what Barack Obama had to say about putting in place deterrents against kids sent here illegally, as well as returning THEM TO SENDER when they do come here uninvited.

“Obama: Migrant children without claims will be sent home.”

‘Read My Lips: I’ll Build The Wall’

“Read my lips: no new taxes.”

That pledge was the centerpiece of Bush’s acceptance address, written by speechwriter Peggy Noonan, for his party’s nomination at the 1988 Republican National Convention.

What will President Trump’s political epitaph be?

“Read My Lips: I’ll Build The Wall.”

Amid the slush of sentimentality over the death of George H. Bush, nobody in media made mention of where “W” (shrub Jr.) had been when he bid farewell to his father.

The State, remember, is not The People. The interests the dead pursued, for the most, were not those of ordinary Americans.

Maybe Israel can help?

UPDATED (8/22): Paul Manafort’s Lawyers Decide To … Gamble. What’s There To Lose Except The Rest Of Client’s Life

Justice, Law, Taxation

His life is on the line—the rest of it—yet Paul Manafort’s lawyers have opted for a risky defense strategy. Risky when so much is at stake.

Instead of mounting a defense against the oddly timed prosecution out of the Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, Manafort’s lead attorney Kevin Downing decides to wing it. His defense relied on cross examination of the prosecution’s witnesses.

Apparently the belief is that juries are sophisticated enough to discern that “the government has not met its burden of proof.”

“This is very common after prosecution rests to file a motion saying they didn’t meet the burden beyond a reasonable doubt,” said John Cohen, a former homeland security official and ABC New contributor. “Typically, this doesn’t work.”

Manafort’s lawyers clearly felt that gambling was the way to go, here. After all, what’s there to lose? The rest of their client’s life?

UPDATE (8/22):

Dumb lawyer gambled with his client’s life and the client lost.

UPDATED (8/2/018): ‘FREEDOM’ Is Feeling The Full Weight Of The State Come Down On You

America, Criminal Injustice, Democracy, Law, Liberty, Taxation, The State

When the full weight of the state can be brought down on one man, and when that man is not a criminal in any meaningful sense—remember, taxation is legalized, state theft of private property—you know that man, Paul Manafort, in this case, was never free.

AND you know YOU are not free. Beware!

BUT, “Our democracy” is under threat. The Russians, the Russians.”

As usual, Tucker is the only sane member of Big Media.
