REPORT: POTUS TRUMP “Seriously Considering” Ending DACA

A new report by Axios says President Trump is “seriously considering” ending DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). The move would yield high praise from President Trump’s base and draw ire from his detractors. One thing is for certain – both sides would agree the move would erase a chunk of former President Obama’s legacy. 

Axios reports:

Sources familiar with the deliberations tell Axios that Trump has made no final decision, and the White House continues to receive advice from the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice. Jeff Sessions strongly believes Trump should end DACA; DHS, however, has a more nuanced position, and Trump himself has said he’s sympathetic to the children helped by the program.

What is DACA? Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals — a program Obama introduced that shields illegal immigrants from deportation and temporarily gives them permits to work and study in the U.S., so long as they arrived as children.

Why this matters: If Trump rescinds the program, it will affect a huge number of people. At least 750,000 people currently have DACA status. Despite promising on the campaign trail to immediately rescind DACA, Trump has wavered since taking office, saying he feels for these children who were brought to the country through no fault of their own. The Trump administration has continued to issue new permits under the program, and with its future unclear, many families are confused and anxious about their futures.

Yesterday, POLITICO reported President Trump is exercising a high level of caution when it comes to his decision on DACA. Red states may sue the administration if the law is not reversed.

POLITICO reports:

Ten conservative states have threatened to sue the administration in order to kill off the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, a 2012 initiative that has granted work permits to nearly 800,000 young undocumented immigrants.They’re trying to replicate their legal tactic from more than two years ago, when a broader coalition of GOP-led states successfully stopped a more expansive program for millions of undocumented immigrants before it even began.

That means DACA, which President Barack Obama began five years ago this month, is confronting its gravest danger yet. And one of the biggest questions — will Trump defend the program in court — is still anybody’s guess.

Trump is facing pressure from his conservative allies to kill the initiative, but the hard-liner-in-chief has said that he wants to approach Dreamers “with heart.” Meanwhile, it’s also not clear how Trump would fare in court if he does defend the program, even as an early September deadline to act looms.

Marine witness in FBI probe into Wasserman Schultz’s IT staffer angrily goes public

A Marine involved in the FBI investigation into Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s (D-Fla.) arrested IT staffer Imran Awan stepped out of the shadows of anonymity to go public about his knowledge on the issue.

Andre Taggart, a black U.S. Marine who said he votes Democrat, told the Daily Caller on Wednesday that he was angered by Wasserman Schultz’s claims that the investigation into Awan by U.S. authorities is a result of bigotry.

Taggart is a key witness in the FBI investigation into the Awans. According to the Daily Caller, Taggart rented Awan’s Northern Virginia home. The Marine revealed he discovered the smashed hard drives Awan had left behind when he attempted to flee the U.S. for Pakistan.

Awan reportedly threatened to sue Taggart to get the hard drives back, but Taggert chose to alert the FBI instead of giving them up.

Taggart told the Daily Caller “it was amazing” that Wasserman Schultz suggested Awan was a victim of religious discrimination.

“It pisses me off,” Taggart said.

The Marine said he believed Wasserman Schultz is “crying wolf” and devaluing actual discrimination, while exposing herself and the nation to risks.

“I just want to get these [guys] locked up and exposed and now,” Taggart told the Daily Caller. “The people who facilitated them should also be locked up, as far as I’m concerned.”

Capitol Police first named Awan a central figure in a probe into House Democrat security breaches on Feb. 2. A federal grand jury indicted Awan and his wife Alvi on Aug. 17 for bank fraud, false statements, and unlawful monetary transactions. Alvi fled to Pakistan in March, and is reportedly under protection by the Pakistani government. Awan was apprehended by authorities at Dulles International Airport while attempting to flee for Pakistan himself on July 24.

Taggart told the Daily Caller that he believes it’s unfair that the media is focusing firmly on Trump and his alleged Russian connections, but isn’t mentioning Wasserman Schultz and Awan at all.

“Him, his wife, his brother, all working down there — there’s no way they could do this without help. If we can drag Trump and his wingnuts through the mud for the Russia influence that they are having, then it’s only fair that we also expose this s**t,” Taggart said.

Wasserman Schultz’s worst nightmare

According to various sources, Wasserman Schultz is not taking the probe into her former IT staffer well. Inside sources reported that the congresswoman became “jumpy” after Awan’s arrest and was literally running away from reporters when she spotted them coming toward her.

It’s currently unclear what kind of relationship Wasserman Schultz had with the Awans, but various sources from both inside and outside of House Democrat offices reported that the congresswoman was highly protective of Awan. Some feared that the former IT staffers possessed information capable of blackmailing Wasserman Schultz.

According to authorities, and fellow members of congress, Wasserman Schultz has also been unhelpful, and at times a hinderance to the investigation into the Awans. Senior congressional officials called her lack of cooperation “unsettling,” and suggested the results of the investigation could very well lead to her resignation.

Questions will remain until then. Why is Wasserman Schultz so protective of the Awans? What information did the Awans have? What was the extent of the security breaches? Also, why haven’t we heard much from House Democratic offices about this scandal?

If the answers to these questions are as damning as some congressional leaders believe it is, then Wasserman Schultz will have a very bumpy road ahead of her.

See It: Mike Rowe Unleashes On SJW Who Called Him a Nazi

Advertisement – story continues below

This social justice warrior who inadvertently called Mike Rowe a Nazi probably felt like crawling back behind the computer screen he came from after Rowe publicly blasted his fallacies on an epic Facebook post. This is brutal.

On Aug. 22nd, the host of the Discovery Network’s “Dirty Jobs” openly posted a user named Chuck Atkin’s question on his Facebook wall.

“Chuck Atkins says … “ the post began before citing the question that Atkins dared to ask.

Advertisement – story continues below

“One of the tenants (sic) of white nationalism is that college educated people are academic elitests (sic). Comment? No? I’m not surprised. You never take a political stand because you don’t want to alienate anybody. Its bad for business. I get it. But there is a current of anti intellectualism in this country – promoted by Republicans. Those people love you, and they think your initiative is their initiative. Meanwhile, the rest of the world is kickin our ass academically.”

Atkins was soon to realize his mistake in implying Rowe had white nationalist sympathies. Bad move Chuck… bad move.

Rowe was quick to comment in a lengthy response below Atkin’s question which began saying, “Hi Chuck, Since we’re being candid, allow me to say how much I dislike your post. Everything about it annoys me – your smug and snarky tone, your appalling grammar, your complete lack of evidence to support your claims, and of course, the overarching logical fallacy that informs your entire position.”

Speaking of fallacies, Rowe included this hilarious meme to accompany his response.

logical fallacies

However, he was quick to point out that Atkins was actually right in one aspect. “What really bugs me though, is the fact that you’re not entirely wrong. It’s true; I haven’t shared any political opinions this week, in part anyway, because doing so might very well be ‘bad for business,’” Rowe admitted.

Rowe spoke to the fact that many celebrities who do share political opinions often pay the price for doing so. As such, Rowe said he feels “fine” about keeping those opinions to himself, because he understands that actions and words have consequences.

“What can I say? I work for half-a-dozen different companies, none of whom pay me to share my political opinions. I run a non-partisan foundation, I’m about to launch a new show on Facebook, and I’m very aware that celebrities pay a price for opening their big fat gobs. Gilbert Gottfried, Kathy Griffin, Colin Kaepernick, Milo Yiannopoulos…even that guy from Google who just got himself fired for mouthing off. There’s no getting around it – the first amendment does not guarantee the freedom to speak without consequences. And really, that’s fine by me,” his post continued.

Then he attacked each one of Atkin’s claims in such an epic manner it is worth repeating in its entirety.

“You say that White Nationalists believe that everyone who goes to college is an ‘academic elite.’ You then say that Republicans promote ‘anti-intellectualism.’ You offer no proof to support either claim, but it really doesn’t matter – your statements successfully connect two radically different organizations by alleging a shared belief. Thus, White Nationalists and The Republican Party suddenly have something in common – a contempt for higher education. Then, you make it personal. You say that Republicans ‘love’ me because they believe that my initiative and ‘their’ initiative are one and the same. But of course, ‘their’ initiative is now the same initiative as White Nationalists,” Rowe said in what is pure gold analysis!

“Very clever. Without offering a shred of evidence, you’ve implied that Republicans who support mikeroweWORKS do so because they believe I share their disdain for all things ‘intellectual.’ And poof – just like that, Republicans, White Nationalists, and mikeroweWORKS are suddenly conflated, and the next thing you know, I’m off on a press tour to disavow rumors of my troubling association with the Nazis!”

The clever response then went on to show how Atkins was part of the problem and listed several news networks that take a shred of “information” to create an insanely unbelievable story. He did the same thing with Atkin’s comment, and was able to quickly paint Atkins as a racist using his own words against him.

It really is brilliant.

Finally, and this has to be said, Rowe dropped the mic with this comment.

“There’s not much we can do about the news, but here on Facebook, I think we can do better. This isn’t Twitter. We’re not limited to a few inflammatory sentences and a flurry of emojis. Take a moment, Chuck. Think. Make a rational argument. Otherwise, just link us to a cat video. People love those, and they’re almost never ‘bad for business.’ (Unless of course, the cat gets hurt. People hate that.) Just don’t assume that people will care about your beliefs, if you’re not willing to back them up with some relevant facts and a rational conclusion.”

Boom.

Honesty, everyone need to go right now to this post and read the entire thing. It is amazing to see a celebrity take everything he has learned from the media machine and use it to spread the truth to the people in this country.

We salute you, Mike Rowe.

Alert: Powerful Legal Organization Moves to Confiscate Guns

Advertisement – story continues below

The American Bar Association just proved that it cares less about the rights of Americans than it cares about the liberal agenda on gun control.

In a single move, the ABA made an overt attempt to cut Second Amendment rights during its 2017 annual meeting held Aug. 10-13. The ABA adopted a resolution to urge “state, local, territorial, and tribal governments to enact statutes, rules, or regulations authorizing courts to issue gun violence restraining orders, including ex parte orders.”

Cutting away the legal talk, that can be summed up in one word: Confiscation.

Advertisement – story continues below

As the NRA Institute for Legislative Action explains, “Gun violence restraining orders force a gun owner to surrender their firearms to law enforcement, or authorize law enforcement to seize said firearms, absent a disqualifying criminal conviction.

“NRA has opposed such legislation where introduced because such orders diminish the due process afforded an individual before they are stripped of their Second Amendment rights, and because of these orders’ obvious potential for abuse.”

To be clear, the ABA has decided that the government snatching guns without due process is acceptable under certain conditions.

Advertisement – story continues below

And if the history of American liberalism is a reliable guide, once certain conditions are OK for government exaction, it’s only a matter of time before those conditions expand.

For now, here’s what the ABA sees as appropriate for such horrendous legislation according to the revised copy of its resolution:

1. “That a person (a “petitioner”) with documented evidence that another person (a “respondent”) poses a serious threat to himself or herself or others may petition a court for an order temporarily suspending the respondent’s possession of a firearm or ammunition;

2. “That there shall be a verifiable procedure to ensure the surrender of firearms and ammunition pursuant to the court order; and

3. “That the issuance of the gun violence restraining order shall be reported to appropriate state or federal databases in order to prevent respondent from passing a background check required to purchase a firearm or obtain a firearm license or permit while restraining order is in effect.”

So, all someone — anyone apparently — needs to do is document that a gun owner is, according to some evidence, a danger to society and/or self, send it to the court, and then BAM! The court has the right to strip you of your freedoms.

There’s no due process, here — can you see how egregiously this could be abused?

The American Bar Association does not have power of its own, not really — but it does have some serious influence.

Our rights are constantly under attack by the left — whether it’s overt or not. This resolution of insanity is one of the worst assaults on your rights you have.

Without the NRA, we might never have heard of it.

George Foreman Takes Off the Gloves and Obliterates Anthem Protesters in Epic Statement

George Foreman Takes Off the Gloves and Obliterates Anthem Protesters in Epic Statement

Advertisement – story continues below

Boxing hero and Grillmaster General George Foreman is setting himself up as a champion of American patriotism by calling out NFL star wannabe Colin Kaepernick and NBA athlete Kevin Durant over their anti-patriotic attitudes and disrespect for President Donald Trump.

Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, is infamous for his behavior, kneeling during the national anthem and not voting. Durant, the Golden State Warriors basketball star, has said that if the NBA champion Warriors are invited to the White House, he would not go because of his dislike Trump.

“I don’t respect who’s in office right now,” Durant said, according to Fox News.

Advertisement – story continues below

Foreman has some pretty strong opinions on this country and why Kaepernick and Durant behave the way they do, which he shared on Monday’s podcast of “Offended America.”

“I love the United States,” Foreman said, according to a transcript provided by Fox News. “They (Kevin Durant and Colin Kaepernick) haven’t been brought up with people who were patriotic.”

“A lot of people died so that they can have that privilege,” Foreman said.

Advertisement – story continues below

What’s perhaps the most frustrating of all of the things that these guys have said and done is the fact that Kaepernick didn’t vote.

Do you know how many people in this country died for freedom in this country? It’s enough that Kaepernick should be ashamed.

Foreman also noted that some of his patriotism came from the time in which he was so active — he went and competed in the Olympics in 1968.

“We came in the era we were patriotic. The greatest day of my life was when I put on the colors, representing the United States,” he said.

Advertisement – story continues below

Maybe Kaepernick and Durant could learn a thing or two from Foreman. Well, they definitely could. They just won’t.

The left has got it in their heads that patriotism and the anthem are not in vogue, and they couldn’t be more wrong.

White Leftist Punches Black Trump Supporter Because Only White Supremacists Are Violent

While the media was fixated on the nonexistent white power rally in Boston last weekend, they missed the anti-illegal immigration rally in Laguna Beach, CA. Like Boston, plenty of “counter-protesters” showed up and caused all kinds of mayhem. In the video below we get to see one of these “non-violent” leftists sucker punching a Trump supporter. The fact that the attacker is white and the victim is black really does prove the liberal media narrative that only white supremacists are violent.

VIDEO

R.C. Maxwell is a Trump supporter and he happens to be black, which means that leftists definitely don’t recognize him as being black. Last weekend at a rally against illegal immigration, Maxwell crossed the street and approached the counter-protesters. He said he tried to engage them in intelligent conversation about the immigration issue, which clearly he should not have done. That’s like trying to rationalize with a pack of coyotes while wearing a raw-meat bikini.

Maxwell says the group was less than receptive to his offer of civil discourse and pepper-sprayed him. Still, he persisted. They then tried choking him, because liberals are reasonable people who know how to debate any topic. In the video, you can see white guy Richard Losey walk up and sucker-punch Maxwell, because leftists also know how to end any debate.

Richard Losey? This guy was named after what black people call a single cigarette? Wasn’t that what Eric Garner was arrested for selling? Maybe this is why Mr. Losey felt entitled to punch a black guy in the face because he had a slightly different opinion on things. Then again, it could just be because he’s an asshole. After all his last name is one “R” away from being “Loser.”

Based on this video, police were able to identify Losey and arrested him on Tuesday. He was actually trying to get the hell out of Southern California to avoid arrest. He was picked up by police while trying to buy a bus ticket to Ohio.

Okay, let’s take a look at this thing that liberals and their media don’t find in the least bit offensive. A white guy, who apparently aligns with the left, sucker-punches a black guy who committed the crime of thinking for himself. If a white Trump supporter had punched black protester of any kind, it would be the most racist thing ever and a huge national news story.

In a weird way however, the liberal media is right that white supremacists are the only ones who are violent. They just got it wrong that white supremacists are on the right.
