    I agree, but it's not like they didn't know ahead of time what they were getting. Ie: they eagerly agreed to the deal.
    To steal means to take it without them wanting us to. In this case, they want the dollars more than they want boat loads of goods.

    Follow Up: Senator Ted Cruz Admits “Inadvertent Fraud” From Goldman Sachs Campaign “Loans”…
    Posted on May 27, 2017 by sundance

    Those who followed the 2016 presidential campaign might remember when Senator Ted Cruz was discovered to have hidden $1.3 million in campaign “loans” from Goldman Sachs and Citibank during his 2012 campaign for the senate.

    [​IMG]At the heart of the issue was a failure of Ted and Heidi Cruz to list Wall Street “loans” on the required Federal Election Commission financial reports.

    Beyond the financing was the most likely reality that Goldman Sachs insiders were actually financing Senator Cruz and using “loans” as a tool to skirt campaign finance laws.

    During the heat of the 2016 primary campaign the Cruz Team, and the legions of supporters therein, vociferously defended the revelations and stated there was no issue with their campaign filings.

    In response to the issue the Ted Cruz campaign said they’ll go through the enforcement mechanism of the FEC instead of the compliance division for resolution.

    By going through the “enforcement division” (took over a year) they would delay any damaging information from discovery until after the 2016 Presidential Election.

    Well, the enforcement division of the FEC finally made a decision as to the entire construct of the dubious campaign financing:

    [​IMG]

    WASHINGTON – The Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Thursday said that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) improperly accounted for Goldman Sachs loans he received during his 2012 Senate campaign.

    The FEC’s finding, which was posted on its website, marked a rare moment of agreement between the agency’s five commissioners.

    The commissioners voted unanimously that $1.1 million in loans to Cruz’s 2012 Senate bid from Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Citigroup Inc. should have been disclosed to voters. The loans first came to light during Cruz’s GOP primary bid in last year’s presidential campaign.

    The FEC did not specify whether Cruz would face a penalty, but auditors found that he made five loans to his campaign during 2011 and 2012 totaling $1.4 million.

    Auditors said that $800,000 of that total came from Goldman Sachs and $264,000 came from Citigroup, with the rest coming from Cruz’s personal funds. (more)

    For those of you who understood the heart of the issue and the larger point about how it was additional evidence that Ted Cruz was not an “outsider” but rather an agent of the global financial system, a creature of the swamp hiding under the mask of deception, you can consider yourselves vindicated.

    For those readers who are still coming to terms with “Battered Conservative Syndrome” and cannot yet believe Senator Ted Cruz would openly lie, ingratiate himself, and manipulate the electorate into believing something less snake-like, well… perhaps they will begin to allow themselves to remove the rose colored glasses.

    Senator Ted Cruz is part of the “controlled opposition” team. He is a member of the same GOPe professional political class as Senator Mitch McConnell. His run for election in 2016 was for the same purposes as all other GOPe members. If not for Donald Trump, you’d have been looking at a Jeb -vs- Hillary general election, and a Hillary Presidency.

    If your eyes are now wide open to the construct of the “controlled opposition” and the “uniparty” in Washington DC…. I would strongly suggest you review the addendum to this revelation with new eyes and look back again on the construct of the Wall Street Super-PAC financing scheme.

    Against the backdrop of this demonstrably proven admission by Senator Ted Cruz…

    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson Rides With Rolling Thunder (Video)…
    Posted on May 29, 2017 by sundance
    [​IMG]

    OK, there were a lot of requests for a picture of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson riding his motorcycle in the Rolling Thunder Memorial Day tribute. Yesterday we shared the video from the rally location just prior to the Noon start of the kickoff ride.

    However, T-Rex didn’t want to create a stir or draw attention away from the purpose of the event – so he was his customary self, low key. That said, after pouring through video footage I FOUND HIM.

    The video is below the fold:

    [​IMG]


    Commencing at 12:00pm on Sunday, 28 May 2017, a police contingent escorts the first tranche of Rolling Thunder Freedom Demonstration riders as they begin their ride from the Pentagon in Arlington, VA, across Memorial Bridge spanning the Potomac River and head past the Lincoln Memorial and onto Constitution Avenue.

    Secretary of State T-Rex comes rolling through at 1:53 of this video:

    .

    [​IMG]

    FROM YESTERDAY – OK, this is just buckets of all American awesome. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson rides with Rolling Thunder in Washington DC to celebrate Memorial Day and salute our armed forces.

    We knew T-Rex was awesome, but who knew T-Rex was Rolling Thunder level awesome?

    An Open Letter to President Donald J. Trump…
    Posted on June 11, 2017 by sundance

    In 2015 we presented a note for candidate Donald Trump to consider. Perhaps today, almost two years later, is a good day to remind President Trump of its content.

    “The lion cannot protect himself from traps, and the fox cannot defend himself from wolves. One must therefore be a fox to recognize traps, and a lion to frighten wolves.”

    ~ Machiavelli

    [​IMG]

    Dear Mr. Trump,

    There is something important you need to know – perhaps more important now than ever. Today is a good day for the message.

    We fully understand the geography of this battle. We have been well aware this campaign to drain the swamp was going to get ugly on many levels. You are confronting a body of globalist political elites. There are trillions of dollars at stake, and significant power over world events hanging in the balance.

    We are not disconnected from fully comprehending the issues at hand. We are also fully aware of the gaslighting, astroturfing, lying, and corrupt propaganda – inbound from all those who hold a vested interest in your marginalization.

    We fully understand the scope of media fraud which is, and will continue, occurring on a grand scale never before seen. We are well versed in the machinations and schemes of the interests you are facing. We are aware.

    We have refined our understanding and communication based on prior years of confrontation and training amid the various battlefields controlled by the very powers now established to see your removal.

    [​IMG]

    We have trained ourselves amid the proving ground of the Mississippi 2014 primary fiasco as a recent and painful exhibit. Unfortunately, we reluctantly accept that neither the Democrat nor Republican party is our friend. Arguably Washington DC is infected with a singular party, a uni-party disconnected from the people they are supposed to represent.

    Long ago conservative Americans accepted that most of the U.S. general electorate were unaware of political corruption (on this scale) on both sides of the political continuum. So, we, thousands of us, set about working around a corrupt and deceitful media.

    A vast network of patriotic Americans communicate in various platforms and discussions, each bringing increased sunlight to the reality of our situation. The knowledge therein has grown exponentially.

    Over the course of the past several years, as your own frustration with the body politic has grown, you were/are not alone in this understanding. There are millions of us who have vested our own time, interests and insight into discovering the true root of the corrupting forces within our body politic. The resulting network is significant, massive even.

    However, we are not liberal or conservative, republican, democrat or independent. We are not black or white, Latino or non-Hispanic, or any other form of hyphenated categorization. We are not preachy ‘in-your-face‘ religious, nor are we absent of accepting a moral and guiding God. We are, quite simply, Americans.

    Perhaps awakened Americans – in various stages and forms, but clear-eyed to the situation that surrounds us. We are what you seem to reference as: “the no-longer-silent majority”.

    Labels or categories of personage, they matter not. What matters is our fundamental belief that we are Americans first and foremost. Many of us have served our nation; even more of us carry a respect for, and cherish the efforts of, those who have and do.

    Yes, you are profoundly correct, “either we have a country or we don’t“. We get that.

    Here’s the kicker. We are with you.

    So why write?

    Well, it is important for us to let you know – there is no need to convince us of your capabilities, experience, qualifications or intentions. We’ve got that.

    We have completed our due diligence and we fully understand that a non-hyphenated American, like us, may make errors, change courses, reverse opinions in the face of new information, and yet still hold a core principle that points ‘True North’.

    Our errors, faults, shortcomings and flaws do not make us ‘less than’, they make us human.

    Much more important than you convincing us of your worth; in this moment of consequence – it is of far greater importance for you to understand, we are with you.

    You have won -and because you have won, we have won- you can remove a specific fear of needing to convince us of earnest merit. Such things are no longer needed.

    We see you wearing a bullet-proof vest for us and for the forgotten America.

    We fully understand amid all other possible standard-bearers you alone needed this job the least. We fully accept the gravity behind your sacrifice, and the sacrifice of your family, on our behalf, to raise the American flag and U.S. interests higher than all others.

    It is much more important for you to know right now that we stand behind you, than for you to have to expend energy fearful of missteps in proving the value of your objectives. It is our duty now. It is our time now.

    We are here. Battle tested, fully engaged, high-information and highly patriotic voters, who are quite capable of advancing and forcing corrective action through pressure when needed. We know how to light up switchboards, and to turn out en masse when push back is needed or warranted.

    Indeed, you have experienced visits with tens of thousands of us in various venues throughout this blessed nation. We have looked upon each other eye-to-eye. You have earned our trust. You have proven our trust well placed.

    We understand how the corporate media operates – and we fully understand one of their objectives is to plant seeds of doubt within you, and try to get under your skin with various provocations. We fully understand the media intents at damaging us, diminishing us, are essentially channeled through their attacks against you.

    This is the basis for why it is ultimately more important for you to know we are immune to these attacks, than for you to attempt to avoid them.

    The institutional media would like nothing more than to destroy your confidence, through the continual transmission of a lie. Their false message, attempting influence upon our support, is as much targeted toward us – as it is toward your own sense and sensibility.

    You can remove the worry. We see through the ridiculous schemes and agenda polls. We are well aware of how the media manipulates story lines to sell their own chosen corporate and Wall Street-vested narratives.

    As a consequence we can happily say “fughedditaboudit“, it matters not.

    These years of forging our resolve in the raging furnace fueled by political deceptions have done nothing but hardened our commitment. We no longer hammer, nor fold, nor cool that forging amid tears of betrayals evidenced. We ARE ‘cold anger’.

    The deceivers amid the Washington DC politburo, on both sides of the political equation, have created this group of inglorious vulgarians that stand formidably behind you.

    With the forging long behind us, we are well armored, thoroughly prepared, and carry honed battlements beyond penetration by their insufferable optics and tired narratives.

    So you can stand boldly in front of that trench we have established, and look slyly into the explosive fuel we have filled it with. We only ask you to wink, while twirling the Zippo.

    Remember also, enjoy this.

    Truly, there is no better organized, equipped, or committed group than the one covering your six. And there is most certainly no group larger than our non-hyphenated association; regardless how much the pontificating pundits refuse to admit or accept it.

    So when you are upon the field of political combat, engaged with gnats of far lesser consequence, do not sense you necessarily need to respond to provocations on our behalf. We trust your ability to avoid the traps, schemes and manipulative intents.

    And when you look up, outward, and take inventory of the progress… well, we’re right there with you.

    Steadfast.

    Warmest best and deepest appreciation,

    America !

    President Trump Rescinds DAPA – Obama’s Unlawful Executive Action Deferring Deportation…
    Posted on June 16, 2017 by sundance

    An important point before the details: ♦The hero in this entire constitutional story is Federal Judge Andrew Hanen (Full Backstory)♦

    Yesterday, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly announced the DAPA program was officially rescinded:

    (VIA DHS) On June 15, Department of Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly, after consulting with the Attorney General, signed a memorandum rescinding the November 20, 2014 memorandum that created the program known as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (“DAPA”) because there is no credible path forward to litigate the currently enjoined policy. (link)

    [​IMG]

    D.A.P.A or Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents program – was the executive action Obama attempted in November of 2014 which was shut down by Federal Judge Andrew Hanen in February 2015 with the issuance of an emergency injunction.


    It’s important to note the underlying constitutionality of the case was NEVER heard in Judge Hanen’s court. After Hanen put the emergency injunction in place to stop DAPA from being carried out, all of the Obama DOJ action was directed at removing the injunction.

    However, in an unusual twist, in order to establish the scope of the state and federal argument, the Supreme Court did expand their June ’16 hearing beyond the injunction to listen to the underlying merit of the Obama administration’s arguments. They issued a one sentence ruling:

    “The judgement is affirmed by an equally divided court.”
    [​IMG]

    (Via Daily Caller) The Trump administration has fulfilled another one of Donald Trump’s campaign promises by rescinding the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program implemented under Barack Obama that could have allowed as many as five million illegal aliens with children who are citizens or lawful permanent residents to remain in the country if they met certain criteria.

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty percent (50%) disapprove.

    This is the first time the president’s overall approval rating has hit the 50% mark since late April. His approval rating has ranged from a high of 59% in late January shortly after he took office to a low of 42% in early April.

    With Brothers to the Rescue Nod, Trump Takes Subtle Jab at Clintons

    [​IMG]
    Joe Raedle/Getty Images

    by FRANCES MARTEL16 Jun 201791

    In a heart-wrenching address to the Cuban exile community, President Donald Trump announced in Miami Friday a reversal of Obama-era policy that significantly emboldened the Castro regime.
    President Trump could have merely offered some platitudes about the value of freedom, the futility of communism, and some notes on the new policy. Instead, he meticulously listed discrete crimes committed against the Cuban people.

    He gave the stage to former political prisoners, dissidents, freedom fighters wronged by the Castro regime. Trump bowed his head before the suffering of the children torn from their parents under Operation Peter Pan, welcomed a standing ovation for Ladies in White leader Berta Soler, and vowed to the families of those killed in the 1996 Brothers to the Rescue incident that their loved ones “did not die in vain.”

    This last deferential move to the suffering of the Cuban exile community in America served not only to emphasize the care with which President Trump has studied the history of the Cuban Revolution, but to remind the audience of what could have been: a Hillary Clinton presidency that would have put the man who allowed the Brothers to the Rescue incident go unpunished back in the White House.

    Brothers to the Rescue is a humanitarian group run by Cuban-Americans dedicated to rescuing refugees lost at sea attempting to reach America. This was a particularly common problem in the early-to-mid 1990s, following a Castro regime policy change that encouraged Cubans to risk their lives trying to make it to Florida on whatever makeshift rafts and vehicles they could create.

    On February 24, 1996, volunteers Carlos Costa, Armando Alejandre, Mario de la Peña, and Pablo Morales embarked on a mission to scout for lost Cubans in international waters, where they were permitted to fly by international law. Cuban military planes shot them down, killing them all. All four were U.S. citizens.

    The incident occurred during the Bill Clinton presidency, a particularly violent and horrifying time for the Cuban exile community due to Clinton’s permissive policies towards the regime and use of force against the law-abiding Cuban-American community. Clinton asserted that the murder of U.S. citizens would “not be tolerated” before proceeding to tolerate it. While liberal media at the time alleged that Clinton was considering military action, Washington had no response to the attack, returning to its see no evil, hear no evil Cuba policy until the day came to deport Elián González.

    Only one person was ever held accountable for the deaths of these four Americans: Gerardo Hernández, a spy for the Cuban regime who had been operating in Florida. Hernández reportedly provided the intelligence that made the murder possible. He was not charged with murder, but “conspiracy,” and freed during the term of President Barack Obama as part of a trade for U.S. citizen Alan Gross. The families of the Brothers to the Rescue victims, ignored throughout the Clinton era, called Obama’s move a “slap in the face.”

    Long forgotten, three representatives of the families of these men – Mario and Miriam de la Peña and Mirta Méndez – stood alongside President Donald Trump Friday to listen to the president announce a radical shift in policy that would hold the military who killed their loved ones accountable.

    Trump mentioned them by name during his speech, along with a number of former political prisoners and victims of the communist regime who had long remained footnotes in the mainstream dialogue surrounding Cuba: names like Berta Soler and Antúnez, both invited to the event, and like the victims of the Brothers to the Rescue attack.

    In doing so, he issued not only a harsh rebuke of the communist Castro dynasty but of the complacent Democrats that have emboldened it, the leftists in the media who have empowered it, and the thankfully fictional Hillary Clinton administration who would have kept their nearly six-decade-old idleness strong.

    @Irons, just watched the news and farmers here arnt happy about the reversal. Claiming 2 billion annually in Arkansas rice and chicken exports just went poof.

    They were poormouthing about how tuff they have it as farmers here while standing in front of 15 million dollars worth of equipment which is operated by illegals.

    I did notice they told the Mexican help to make themselves scarce for the interview. This was the very farmer who we built the migrant housing for a few months back.

    I've seen modern farming in action and it's not very white. The way this guy talked you'd think he hoed his rows and picked his rice by hand.

    Looks like a likely Democrat voter next cycle.

    I called a friend a "welfare farmer" 12 years ago because he bragged about getting paid for not planting anything. He has not called back sense...... guess I was right.

    The uniparty whores with the "R" label are sitting back PRAYING the demonrats/deepstate and the media get rid of President Trump for them.

    When that doesn't work, right before re election time they will all of a sudden love the guy and become dedicated republicans who have been trying all along to fight the good fight against the evil democrats.

    They are counting on us to not remember how they are acting now.

    Judge Jeanine to Establishment GOP: ‘You’re in Power, Damn It! Do Something, Pass Something, Cut This Kumbaya Crap’


    by TRENT BAKER17 Jun 20173,195

    Fox News Channel’s Jeanine Pirro went after the GOP establishment Saturday on “Justice.”

    Pirro accused the establishment Republicans leaders of watching the Democrats “railroad their president, and then urged them to prove their loyalty by convincing everyone that they are not in on the “effort to take down” President Donald Trump.

    “The Republican establishment not fighting for the commander-in-chief as day after day they watch him being savaged, forcing him to defend himself and run the country. Think about it. If he’s knocked out, the succession is clear and things go back to the way they were,” Pirro said.

    “You’re in power, damn it!” she later exclaimed. “Do something, pass something, cut this kumbaya crap, put on your big boy pants and act like you’re in power, act like you give a damn! And more importantly, convince us that you are not in on the effort to take down the president of the United States.”

    Oops! 70% of CNN Poll Say Trump Should Not Be Investigated for Obstruction of Justice

    This wasn’t supposed to happen!


    After months of attacks on President Trump and daily conspiracy theories CNN must be very upset with the results from their latest online poll.
    CNN asked, “Should Trump be investigated for obstruction of justice?”
    Note: They did not even show enough respect to call him ‘President Trump.’

    To their chagrin, OVER 70% of 2.6 million Americans say he is innocent the crime.

    Here's one from CTH and it has the link to the poll. WE, the good guys, are finally winning folks!. . :2 thumbs up:

    Agenda-Poll FAIL: 2.6 Million CNN Responses, 70% Support President Trump…
    Posted on June 18, 2017 by sundance

    CNN is conducting an on-line poll to determine the overall sentiment surrounding whether or not President Trump “should be investigated for obstruction“?

    With more than 2.6 million responses so far, more than 70% say NO.

    [​IMG]

    (Take Poll HERE)

    There is also a rather funny irony. The wording of the survey suggests CNN’s admission that an obstruction investigation doesn’t currently exist; while breathlessly reporting 24/7 via their network that an investigation of obstruction must necessarily be ongoing….

    “The Mamet Principle!”

    TRUMP RALLY=> Stock Market Sets Seven New All-Time Records in June – Media Silent

    Jim Hoft Jun 20th, 2017 7:38 am 24 Comments

    Guest post by Joe Hoft


    [​IMG]

    The DOW Jones Industrial Average (DOW) hit another record new high on Monday! It was the first time that the DOW broke 21,500 in its more than 100 year history!


    The main stream media (MSM) won’t report it but In the month of June the DOW reached either a new high, its second highest close or its third highest close ever in all days but one. The Dow reached 21,528 on Monday.

    Seven of the 13 days the market was open in June so far have resulted in new highs!


    Here are some more DOW highlights since Donald Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States:


    * The DOW daily closing stock market average has risen 17% since the election on November 8th. (On November 9th the DOW closed at 18,332 – yesterday DOW closed at 21,528 for another all time record closing high).
    * Since the Inauguration on January 20th the DOW is up 9%. (It was at 19,827 at January 20th.)
    * The DOW took just 66 days to climb from 19,000 to above 21,000, the fastest 2,000 point run ever. The DOW closed above 19,000 for the first time on November 22nd and closed above 21,000 on March 1st.
    * The DOW closed above 20,000 on January 25th and the March 1st rally matched the fastest-ever 1,000 point increase in the DOW at 24 days.
    * On February 28th President Trump matched President Reagan’s 1987 record for most continuous closing high trading days when the DOW reached a new high for its 12th day in a row!
    * The Market gained $2 trillion in wealth since Trump was elected!
    * The S&P 500 also broke $20 Trillion for the first time in its history.

    Before the November 8th election, the prior high for the DOW under President Obama was on August 15th, 2016. This is why the ‘Trump Rally’ is such an anomaly and totally due to President Trump and his winning policies and the hope that he generates.

    This Trump Rally is amazing and Yesterday was again history! Put it in the record books!

    Supreme Court: Immigrants Who Lie to Feds to Become Citizens May Lose Citizenship


    [​IMG]

    by KEN KLUKOWSKI24 Jun 2017Washington, DC652

    WASHINGTON—The Supreme Court on Thursday held that federal law authorizes courts to strip immigrant citizens of their U.S. citizenship if they obtained it as a result of making false statements to the federal government.
    Federal law found at 18 U.S.C. § 1425(a) makes it a crime to “knowingly procur[e], contrary to law, the naturalization of any person” to become a U.S. citizen. (“Naturalization” is the legal term for becoming a citizen.) Moreover, a second federal statute, 8 U.S.C. § 1451(e) adds that a foreigner who obtains U.S. citizenship through such a violation will lose that newly granted citizenship.

    Divna Maslenjak is a Serb who, along with her husband and two children, sought refugee status in 1998 to flee Bosnia. As part of seeking protected status, she swore under oath that the family feared persecution because her husband evaded military service. They were admitted to the United States in 2000 as refugees.

    In 2006, she applied for U.S. citizenship. One question on her application asked if she had ever given “false or misleading information” while applying for immigration benefits. Another asked if she had “lied … to gain entry or admission” in this country. She answered “no” to both and became an American citizen in 2007.

    Those answers were false. Her husband had served in the Bosnian Serb Army. A third federal statute, 18 U.S.C. § 1015(a), criminalizes making a false sworn statement during naturalization. The U.S. government argued that her statement violating § 1015(a) also counts as a violation of § 1425(a), which meant she must lose her citizenship under § 1451(e).

    A judge on the federal district court accepted that argument and stripped Maslenjak of her citizenship. The Sixth Circuit appeals court affirmed.

    In an opinion written by Justice Elena Kagan, the Supreme Court in Maslenjak v. United States vacated (i.e., set aside) the lower court’s decision and remanded the case back down for more proceedings.

    The federal government had argued that the citizenship-stripping provision is triggered whenever an immigrant commits a crime during the process of seeking citizenship.

    All nine justices rejected that argument. “The most natural understanding is that the illegal act must have somehow contributed to the obtaining of citizenship,” Justice Kagan wrote. In other words, “§ 1425(a) demands a means-ends connection between a legal violation and naturalization.”

    “We hold that the Government must establish that an illegal act by the defendant played some role in her acquisition of citizenship,” the Court declared. “When the illegal act is a false statement, that means demonstrating that the defendant lied about facts that would have mattered to an immigration official.”

    The Court concluded that the contrary instructions given to the jury were faulty and that, instead, the jury should have been told that they needed to decide the factual question of whether Maslenjak’s lying about her husband’s military service was part of the cause of obtaining her own citizenship.

    The majority vacated the lower court’s decision and remanded back to the trial court for a new jury proceeding where a correct explanation of the law would be provided to the jury.

    Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote a decision concurring in part, joined by Justice Clarence Thomas. Justice Gorsuch wrote that the majority created a framework that was too elaborate, consisting of two complex tests with multiple parts. These new tests focus on causation, which was not the focus of the parties’ legal briefs or oral arguments.

    He struck a note of judicial modesty, explaining:

    Respectfully, it seems to me at least reasonably possible that the crucible of adversarial testing on which we depend, along with the experience of our thoughtful colleagues on the district and circuit benches, could yield insights (or reveal pitfalls) we cannot muster guided only by our own lights.

    Justice Gorsuch added that he believes the Supreme Court should send the case back down with a less-elaborate holding, and allow the lower courts to flesh out additional details as necessary over time. After a period of trial and error, the Supreme Court could then in future cases review aspects of those legal interpretations.

    “This Court often speaks most wisely when it speaks last,” he concluded.

    Justice Samuel Alito also wrote a separate opinion concurring in the judgment, writing that when it comes to false statements, the immigration statute is violated when a person says something that is “material” to the naturalization process of obtaining citizenship. But contrary to the Court’s majority, Justice Alito believes that the statement need not actually be part of the cause of obtaining citizenship.

    The case is Maslenjak v. United States, No. 16-309.
