It’s now clear from the ongoing #SchumerShutdown that Democrats put Americans last when it comes to priorities. By refusing to contribute to the 60 votes needed in the U.S. Senate to pass the Continuing Resolution for government funding, Democrats are effectively holding Americans hostage while demanding citizenship for illegal aliens (“undocumented immigrants”) who came to this country illegally.
These illegal immigrants are “dreamers,” according to the Democrats. In other words, Americans aren’t allowed to have dreams. Only people from other countries, apparently, are supposed to be able to dream while Americans are shoved aside by cruel Democrats. Never mind the fact that up to 75% of households on welfare are immigrants living on government subsidies which are ultimately paid by American taxpayers. (Yes, the real dream of many “dreamers” is to live off the welfare state while claiming victimhood status…)
Democrats have even thrown U.S. soldiers to the dogs, cutting off military funding in their callous bid to demand amnesty. But it’s a huge tactical mistake, explains New Gingrich:
“[T]he Democrats made a huge mistake because what they should have done was pass the defense appropriations bill for the whole year — get it off the table, don’t threaten the men and women in uniform and their families,’ Gingrich told John Catsimatidis, host New York AM 970 radio’s “The Cats Roundtable.” “Instead, they stumbled into a situation where the Schumer shutdown cuts off funding for the American military on behalf of trying to get a deal for 700,000 people who entered the U.S. illegally.”
Democrats cannot maintain power unless the voting masses are impoverished and living on government entitlements
Democrats, of course, need more illegal immigrants to be granted citizenship so they will vote for more Democrats. The Democrat party, astonishingly, has become the “pro-poverty” party that depends on increasing numbers of impoverished, uneducated citizens living on entitlement handouts promised by “progressives” in Washington.
No wonder California is now the most impoverished state in the U.S. Yes, you read that correctly: California now has more poverty than Mississippi, Louisiana or Arizona. That’s because it’s run by Democrats whose very success in office depends on open border, a massive welfare state and unlimited benefits for illegals. California Democrats are so dedicated to this model of electoral “success” — poverty, welfare and open borders — that the state is now automatically registering illegal aliens to vote when they receive driver’s licenses.
Under the guidance of President Trump, the GOP passed a revolutionary tax reform bill that has already seen over a quarter of trillion dollars in corporate profits pledged for repatriation back into the United States. And that’s from just one company: Apple. When you combine the pledges of other large corporations who are moving factories back to the United States, the job creation, federal tax revenues and employee take-home pay benefits are nothing short of astonishing. While President Obama wagged his finger at Americans and told them the “golden years” of a strong U.S. economy were over, President Trump is reviving the economic powerhouse that made America great in the first place. That economic abundance has already been directly experienced by millions of Americans receiving income bonuses and lowered tax rates thanks to the tax reform bill.
Economic abundance is the death warrant for Democrats
This economic success, of course, threatens the Democrats by creating opportunities for individual Americans to raise themselves out of poverty and experience prosperity and freedom. And that’s a signed death warrant for Democrats, who can only survive when the masses are impoverished, helpless, victimized and wholly dependent on big government to cover their basic living costs (while telling them what to think, what to eat, how to think and so on). Hence the need to bring an unlimited stream of illegal aliens into the United States, mostly from impoverished nations that were, not surprisingly, economically gutted by left-leaning economic policies in the first place. (Venezuela, anyone?)
In essence, the Democrats want to turn America into a Mexico, or a Venezuela, or even a Cuba. Destitute populations demand big government “solutions” that favor power-hungry Democrats, while self-empowered people who lift themselves out of poverty quickly come to realize that high taxation and big government only crushes the real dreams of innovation, employment and entrepreneurship. Effectively, Democrats crush human dreams and demand submission, victimization and economic servitude, while President Trump is working diligently to get the government out of the way, allowing human dreams and innovation to take flight.
Democrats, in essence, want to turn America into a nation of impoverished masses on government welfare benefits. Republicans want a nation of self-reliant, capable citizens who succeed precisely because government is kept out of the way with lower taxes, less onerous regulation and reduced government interventions in the lives of individuals. Which America would you rather see succeed?
The real “dreamers” are American citizens who want to achieve prosperity
The real “dreamers,” it turns out, are the Americans who desperately wish to achieve prosperity. And it is precisely those dreamers who are targeted and punished by the Democrats in their quest to crush the human spirit and install themselves as power brokers over the impoverished masses.
Democrats are the anti-dreamers. They are the tyrants who crush dreams and sideline Americans while openly attempting to see America overrun with welfare-collecting illegals who just so happen to vote for more Democrats. This is exactly why Republicans need to find whatever courage is necessary to resist the Democrats’ engineered occupation of America with impoverished illegal immigrants, the vast majority of whom have never “paid their fair share of taxes” as the Democrats like to say. If any undocumented immigrants are to be granted citizenship in a negotiation, it should be strictly limited to those who have a tax ID number and have been working jobs and paying into the system for at least the last five years (yes, many of those people exist, and they are arguably hard-working people who deserve a shot at full citizenship as part of a deal that builds the wall).
Everybody else should be sent packing. America is not your free welfare state. America is not your drug-running playground. America is not your sugar daddy, your crime spree zone or your land of free health care for non-citizens. It’s time for you to go, and it’s time for America to defend its borders and stop the parasitic exploitation of entitlement benefits by illegals who flat-out refuse to contribute to society.
America needs a merit-based immigration system that welcomes those who contribute to our nation
Build the wall. Deport the welfare illegals. Call out the shameless Democrats for their #SchumerShutdown. And when it comes time to welcome hard-working new immigrants to America, make sure it’s a merit-based system that welcomes those who seek to be “true dreamers” by following the American dream of hard work, self-responsibility and abiding by the laws of the land.
Watch this brutally honest ad to understand more:
“When a wave of false bomb threats hit our country two years ago, our party not only proposed, but actually drafted, a bill that tightened the responsibility for this ‘telephone terrorism’ with a raise in monetary fines and an extension of prison terms. Yet nothing was done. Two years ago it was a test that has developed into events of larger scale this year that you all could witness,” Mikhail Degtyaryov told fellow MPs on Friday.
“We again ask all law enforcement agencies, all parliamentary caucuses and the government: let us again take measures that would toughen the responsibility for ‘telephone terrorism’,” he added.
“Maybe, we can even make such behavior equal to assisting terrorists, because when they cause response from emergency services and law enforcement agencies real terrorists can witness this. They can learn response time and evacuation routes,” he said.
Presently assisting terrorist activities, including sponsorship of terrorist organizations, is punishable by up to 20 years in prison, but suspects can evade it completely if they voluntarily report the plans of attack and help to effectively prevent it.
Earlier in the week, a wave of anonymous phone calls across Russia caused evacuations of over 130,000 people from over 420 sites. Not a single threat has proved to be true, but still the estimated combined damage from the disrupted work of various organizations and transport amounted to about 1 billion rubles ($17.2 million), according to deputy chair of the State Duma Committee for Defense, Yury Shvytkin (United Russia).
Sources in law enforcement agencies have told RIA Novosti that investigators did not rule out that the people who made the false calls were connected with the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS). They also added that the calls were made from outside Russia but nevertheless some actual perpetrators were established and will soon be put on international wanted lists.
On Friday afternoon, Kommersant daily reported that several people had been detained in Russia for making false reports of planned terrorist attacks via telephones or on social networks.
However, Kommersant’s sources said that all of the detained were teenagers who apparently were provoked into such actions by earlier false calls from abroad.
As a shift toward authoritarianism in Western governance finds civilians increasingly at the mercy of liberty-robbing laws, punitive (in)justice, and state control, our individual sovereignty as human beings and parents to decide whether or not children should be vaccinated might not be ours to make quite soon.
While both sides of the public vaccine debate maintain intractably obstinate, the governments of Australia and several European nations have come out in support of inoculation mandates — or penalties steep enough to equivocate mandates — to the consternation of parents concerned for the dearth in comprehensive research on the topic.
Pro-vaccine positions contend the safety of vaccines and their track record of nearly annihilating deadly and dreaded diseases; but detractors say the benefits have not been examined in the context of the shots potential interactions with one another, among other seemingly imperative points.
Both sides deem one another child abusers for their positions, and — although Western laws do not yet prohibit refusing inoculation — legislation trends intimate the State has lost patience with parents who refuse to follow the full vaccination schedule, in whole or part, with children enrolled in public education.
Driving the international push toward mandatory immunization are multiple outbreaks of diseases worldwide — measles and whooping cough, for example — previously thought so minimal a modern risk as to be considered nearly eradicated. Recent acts of legislation throughout the West indicate the response to these public health crises will ultimately mean a loss of choice for the people on a particularly thorny topic, Vox reports,
“Europe has long struggled with a vaccine mistrust problem … and these new laws or policy proposals arose in the context of ongoing, unprecedented measles outbreaks across the continent. Australia has also dealt with its share of vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks, and the government crackdown is part of a push to get 95 percent of Australian children vaccinated with routine immunizations, above the current rate of 93 percent.”
European and Australian lawmakers quickly busied themselves with fending off possible epidemics, reaching various State-forced solutions to the debate.
At the end of July, Italy’s Parliament approved a mandatory if controversial course of ten vaccines to be given children through the age of 16 years — for which parents must produce proof in order to enroll kids in school, or face a fine of €500 (approximately $600) for noncompliance.
German officials did not prohibit refusing immunization, but did turn teachers into snitches and trepidatious parents into potential criminals by imposing inordinate fines of up to €2,500 (about $3,000) against those who refuse vaccine counseling from their doctors for their kindergarten-age children — as well as the requirement school administrators report offending parties to authorities.
France intends to deem 11 vaccines mandatory by next year — adding eight to the diphtheria, polio, and tetanus already required — although, as Vox notes, fines and penalties for violations aren’t yet clear. Notably, a survey last month found a telling three in ten people do not trust in vaccines — a figure growing by the day.
One drastic solution to the immunization debate — dubbed ‘No Jab No Pay’ — comes from the state of South Australia, where unvaccinated children would be barred from daycare and preschool, with massive fines of $30,000 ($24,000 U.S.) levied against schools allowing kids who aren’t inoculated to attend. Parents also lose social benefits.
Questions about the safety, efficacy, and possible long-term effects of immunizations in young children have spread faster than the epidemics vaccines prevent — particularly in the U.S., where a cleft divides the two inflexible stances, and neither seems keen on the slightest compromise.
Discussions pertaining to State-mandated vaccines on the horizon here send shivers up the necks of skeptics and a faction of the human rights movement. Social media frequently buzzes in condemnation of government-coerced anything, and choice-eliminating mandated inoculation — the prospect an administration of kleptocrats would violate the most personal of sovereignties — leaves a bitter taste in the mouths of proponents and detractors, alike.
“All 50 states currently have legislation requiring vaccines for students,” Vox reports, “but almost every state allows exemptions for people with religious beliefs against immunizations, and 18 states grant philosophical exemptions for those opposed to vaccines because of personal or moral beliefs. (The exceptions are Mississippi, California, and West Virginia, which have the strictest vaccine laws in the nation, allowing no philosophical or religious exemptions.)”
Severe though they may be, officials flaunt high rates of inoculation in those three states as a measure of success.
With the law-and-order Trump administration swiftly clamping down on dissent in any of its multitudinous forms — including refusing to vaccinate one’s progeny — it could be posited some incarnation of mandatory inoculations will likely visit the states quite soon. An epidemic could be brewing at any time.

Under the new rules, students will receive one paddling for minor infractions such as disrupting the classroom or disobeying class rules set by the teacher.
“If the parent is not comfortable with it, that’s the end of the discussion,” Three Rivers ISD Superintendent Mary Springs said, as cited by Corpus Christi Caller Times.
“We will look at how many discipline referrals were made compared to last year and how many times (corporal punishment) was administered,” she added.
The Three Rivers Independent School District in south Texas and 26 other school districts now permit the use of corporal punishment, with the new policy expected to take effect at the start of the school year.
Texas is one of 19 states that allow the use of corporal punishment in the classroom.
In 2016, the Obama administration called for an end to corporal punishment in schools.
All school districts that allow corporal punishment in Texas are required to inform parents and receive consent. Parents will have to submit a permission slip which affords the school principal or “campus behavior coordinator” the ability to physically discipline unruly students.
The Trustees and the Texas Education Agency say they have no evidence that physical discipline is effective at correcting misbehavior.
Corporal punishment is defined as the deliberate infliction of physical pain by hitting, paddling, spanking, slapping, or any other physical force used as a means of discipline.
“I believe it worked,” Three Rivers Elementary School’s campus behavior coordinator, Andrew Amaro told the Caller Times of his own experiences in school with corporal punishment.
“It was an immediate response for me. I knew that if I got in trouble with a teacher and I was disrespectful, whatever the infraction was, I knew I was going to get a swat by the principal.”
“If it reduces the number of discipline referrals, then that’s a good thing,” Springs added.
An unelected all-male council from a village in India’s Baghpat district handed down the ruling on July 30, ordering Meenakshi Kumari, 23, and her sister, 15, to be raped as well as paraded naked with blackened faces.
Two sisters to be raped as punishment. Not punishment for what they did, by the way, but for what their brother did https://t.co/TQJqRgb1e7

The council deemed this an appropriate punishment for their brother’s elopement with a married woman from the higher Jat caste. The brother, known as Ravi, is reportedly from the Dalit caste, which is India’s lowest, formerly known as the“untouchables.” He ran away with his beloved despite fears of retribution.
“Nothing could justify this abhorrent punishment. It’s not fair. It’s not right. And it’s against the law. Demand that the local authorities intervene immediately,” Amnesty International said, calling on people worldwide to sign their petition to persuade the Indian government to intervene.

Fearing for their safety, both sisters fled their village along with their family back in May. Their house was looted soon thereafter.
The Jat caste is very powerful in the village, Amnesty quoted Sumit Kumar, another of Meenaksh’s brothers, as saying. “The Jat decision is final.”
Amnesty UK’s Urgent Action Coordinator, Rachel Alcock, told the Mirror that such “disgusting” punishments are common in the villages all over India. “These Khap courts routinely order vile sexually violent punishments against women. India’s Supreme Court has rightly declared such orders illegal.”
This is very important to be signed, it’s absolutely horrible that this is allowed to happen
— dom (@burnmeouts) August 28, 2015
The Supreme Court has labeled such local councils “kangaroo courts” and branded their decisions as illegal. However, this has not halted such local trials in various states.
Meenakshi has filed a petition with the Supreme Court, asking for protection. Harassment complaints have also been launched against locals and the police from her village.

As for the supposedly runaway lovers, there have been conflicting reports over their whereabouts and whether the woman consented to elope.
According to Amnesty’s version of events, there are concerns over the safety of Ravi’s lover. Zee Media reported that the couple were allegedly in love with each other prior to the woman’s marriage. After she was married to another man in February, she reportedly fled and eloped with Ravi in March.
The Times of India says the runaway couple “had to return, due to pressure from the girl’s family and the UP [Uttar Pradesh] police,” citing the text of Meenakshi’s petition. The petition reportedly claimed that the “elopement invited the wrath of the Jat community and UP Police and as a retaliatory measure her family members were abducted and tortured by police.”
Meenakshi’s brother was allegedly accused in “a false narcotics case” and arrested.
According to the New Indian Express, the couple was found in the city of Meerut, two months after they eloped, and the woman accused Ravi of abducting her. Local police denied the existence of a council “diktat” altogether, saying that the man has been jailed in Meerut, awaiting trial on charges of abducting a married woman.
The widespread problem of rape in Indian society was brought into the global spotlight in December 2012, when a brutal gang rape case in Delhi prompted thousands of people to protest in the streets and hold candlelight vigils. Six men, including one underage teenager, took part in the horrific attack, raping and killing a 23-year-old physiotherapy student. Four adult attackers were eventually sentenced to hang, while one hanged himself in prison. The court, however, has stayed the executions to allow for appeals.

The public outcry persuaded the Indian government to double prison terms for rapists to 20 years. New legislation was also introduced, making it a crime for police officers to refuse to open cases when allegations of rape are made.
The National Crime Records Bureau estimated that one woman gets raped every 22 minutes in India. In May 2014, two teenage cousins were gang-raped and murdered in the small village of Katra Shahadatganj, in Uttar Pradesh.
