If you aren't familiar with the name of Terry Sharpe, he's a Marine who walks to raise awareness of Veteran issues.

This year he walked from NC to Washington DC. Some 300 miles. He arrived in DC today.

God bless President Trump. He took a few minutes to greet the Marine and then the President motioned for the group with him to come up by the red carpet and get their picture taken also. He didn't have to do that but what a nice gesture.

I noticed the Marine didn't have a mask on and the President didn't seem worried about it in the least. (Most everyone else had a mask on so I am surprised the White House Security Detail allowed the folks on the White House property without masks.)

Background Press Call on the Administration's Actions on the DACA Program

1595977889352.png


The administration was obviously very disappointed in Chief Justice Roberts’s decision at the Supreme Court a few weeks back.



The administration continues to have significant doubts about the policy - the DACA policy’s legality and the negative consequences that ensue from that policy for law enforcement, child welfare, and overall border security.



It’s important to note here, at the outset, that the Court did not rule that Obama’s program was lawful. The issue that the Court reached in its decision was only that the administration had insufficiently justified its wind-down of the DACA program. The court agreed that the administration can, in fact, pursue a wind-down of the DACA program.



And it’s also worth noting that even with the Court’s disposition, there is still significant ongoing litigation in challenging the DACA program in several federal district court jurisdictions across the country.



The administration is now undertaking a comprehensive review of the DACA program and the justifications that have been offered for winding DACA down, including its illegality and the negative effect the program has on what I’d call “immigration behavior,” including smuggling and illegal crossings.



When the administration next acts on DACA, it will be on the basis of the comprehensive review of the substantive legal and legal policy justifications offered for winding down the program.



Obviously, to do this correctly and thoughtfully, the review will have to take time. We won’t weigh in on how long that will take because it’s a question of a careful review of all the documentation that was provided to Deputy Secretary Duke, Attorney General Sessions, Secretary Nielsen, in the formation of their memos.



In the meantime, the administration will take the following actions on the existing DACA program:



All initial requests and application fees submitted for new filings will be rejected without prejudice should the policy be retained - the DACA policy be retained following the administration’s review.



We will adjudicate all applications for renewal on a case-by-case basis, consistent with immigration statute, providing one year, rather than the existing two-year renewal.



And consistent with this policy and the reasoning behind the original Napolitano departmental memo, all applications for advance parole will be rejected absent extraordinary circumstances.



The forthcoming memo issued today from the Department of Homeland Security will lay out the background and be pending actions in greater detail.



I’ll just say here, in conclusion: These actions will limit the scope of the program while DHS and the administration review its legality, the justifications for a possible wind-down, and other considerations relevant to deciding whether to keep or wind down the DACA policy.

ICE HSI Orlando, HSI Guatemala seize aircraft, cocaine


1595979108176.png

ORLANDO – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) seized 2,107 kilograms of cocaine and a Gulfstream III (GIII) jet for violating foreign law concerning narcotics by the Government of Guatemala. The July 26, 2020, seizure by HSI Guatemala was based on a collateral request by HSI Orlando and as part of the HSI HOMECORT National Aviation Trafficking Initiative.



“By using a variety of investigative techniques and leveraging strong partnerships, the coordination efforts during this investigation cannot be understated,” said HSI Orlando Assistant Special Agent in Charge David J. Pezzutti. “Targeting transnational criminal organizations, such as narcotics traffickers, has been a collective, team effort by several agencies and units which culminated in this substantial cocaine seizure.”



In March 2019, HSI Orlando received information the GIII would likely be sold and then used to transport illegal drugs. In April 2019, HSI Orlando began monitoring the aircraft.



The aircraft was sold and soon thereafter was taken to Mexico for numerous maintenance flights. On July 25, 2020, HSI Orlando was notified the GIII was en route to the Yucatán Peninsula on a field flight plan. Based on this notification, HSI Guatemala and the Joint Interagency Task Force - South (JIATF-S) were contacted to coordinate and prepare ground monitoring efforts to intercept the narcotics-laden aircraft. The aircraft flew into Venezuela and ended in Guatemalan territory where it was interdicted by the Guatemalan military. The narco-traffickers scuttled the aircraft and attempted to bury the cocaine. HSI Guatemala’s Transnational Criminal Investigative Unit was deployed and participated in the seizure, processing the evidence with Ministerio Publico. This investigation is targeting Guatemalan coordinators via the cocaine air bridge. HSI Guatemala will request evidence samples that will assist with future indictments in this ongoing case in the United States.



This is a joint HSI-led investigation being supported by Joint Task Force-Investigations HOMECORT, JIATF-S Tactical Analysis Team Guatemala, Federal Aviation Administration, the National Targeting Center-Investigations and U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Air Marine Operations Center.

The quiet campaign to reinstate the gold standard is getting louder



Why Trump and Judy Shelton Want the US Back on the Gold Standard'



July 3, 2019



The once-fringe fantasy of a return to the gold standard is creeping back into the mainstream.



It has long been dismissed as a fool’s errand, on par with abandoning the Federal Reserve and other trappings of the modern economy. Mainstream economists deride it almost without exception. Reintroducing the gold standard would “be a disaster for any large advanced economy,” says the University of Chicago’s Anil Kashyap, who connects enthusiasm for it with “macroeconomic illiteracy.” His colleague, Nobel laureate Richard Thaler, struggles with its very underlying principle: “Why tie to gold? Why not 1982 Bordeaux?”



Yet the idea that every US dollar should be backed by a small amount of actual gold is more popular than economists’ opinions might suggest. Advocates include members of Congress and president Donald Trump. Enthusiasm for a return to the gold standard has become more prominent since Trump’s most recent nominees to fill the vacant Federal Reserve governorship have endorsed a return. The first two—Herman Cain and Stephen Moore—both dropped out of consideration, but the third, economist Judy Shelton, announced today in a Trump tweet, may be the most ardent in her support.



Last year, Shelton called for a “new Bretton Woods conference,” akin to the 1944 meeting that established the post-war economic order, perhaps to be held at Mar-a-Lago, where a return to the gold standard could be considered. “We make America great again by making America’s money great again,” she wrote in the journal of the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank.

Trump Administration to Announce $35 Million Housing Grant for Trafficking Victims
1596567778788.png

1596567756596.png


The White House on Tuesday will announce a $35 million grant to help fund housing grants for victims of human trafficking. The grants will be delivered by the Office for Victims of Crime, a component of the Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs. They will go to 73 different organizations across the country that offer housing assistance, transitional housing, and housing cost assistance. “Shelter is the number one most requested service for all crisis cases on the national human trafficking hotline,” a senior administration official told reporters in a briefing including Breitbart News. Attorney General William Barr will join a roundtable at the White House on human trafficking with Senior Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump, White House Special Adviser for Human Trafficking Heather Fischer, and leaders of organizations founded to help trafficking victims. One official spoke to reporters about how Covid-19 lockdowns made it more difficult for victims to escape their traffickers and find shelter.



“We are hearing that many victims were living in quarantine with their traffickers,” the official said. “The anecdotal stories that we are hearing are horrific.” Over 70 percent of victims of human trafficking who contacted the national trafficking hotline were born in the United States, the official noted. “This is just another example of how the president is going to be empowering victims, empowering survivors, empowering these organizations that are providing this safe and stable environment,” an official said. President Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka Trump have made defeating human trafficking a key issue in the Trump administration. “In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, combating human trafficking in the U.S. and abroad is critical work,” Ivanka Trump said in a statement. “DOJ’s grant recipients are on the frontlines of this fight, ensuring that survivors across our country are afforded safe and stable housing and empowered with the support and resources they need to rebuild their lives.”



In January, the president signed an executive order to outline special resources to combat trafficking, including the appointment of a special adviser in the White House devoted to the issue. “We will not rest until we’ve stopped every last human trafficker and liberated every last survivor,” Trump said at a January event highlighting the issue.

Democrats’ Worst Nightmare: Black Trump Supporters March in Los Angeles, Champion #BlackLivesMAGA

Posted at 6:30 pm on August 4, 2020 by Alex Parker

We’ve got some strange things going on with regard to race.

For months now, thousands of violent rioters — the vast, vast majority of them evidently Caucasian — have taken to the streets bearing the banner of “Black Lives Matter.”


While screaming at black people in uniforms.

And raging about things having nothing to do with race, like the right to own their own business (capitalism) and the ability to keep from getting dead (anti-anarchical law enforcement).

Meanwhile, the official organization Black Lives Matter™ — led by “trained Marxists” — lists among its objectives a rebellion against family.

And the Smithsonian is telling us things such as hard work, planning for the future, science, rigid time schedules, aesthetics, justice, competition, and individualism are inherently white.

Here’s another: To hear the media tell it, only the pale prefer the President.

Joe Biden agrees — if you don’t vote for him, “you ain’t black.”

But surprise: Many actual black individuals own their own businesses, show up on time, work hard to compete, and do it in style — like artists.

And they don’t all think alike.

That was made clear in Los Angeles this weekend, as black supporters marched with flags touting “Trump 2020.”

One of the event’s leaders gave the mainstream media narrative a bit of What For:

“Amidst the scorn, and despite being called c**ns and Uncle Tom’s, a few of us black Trump supporters took to the front to head a collective march thru the streets of Los Angeles, as we all showed support for America, Trump, and our police.”​
He topped it off with a clever hashtag: #BLACKLIVESMAGA.

Bonus: #liberalsworstnightmare

For those that thought I wasn’t into the Environment, this is the biggest bill ever passed, by far. I wonder if this will silence the Fake News? Probably not!

Report from rural Michigan is Trump signs and flags outnumbering biden signs easily 10 to 1. I did not see this in 2016, there were very few signs of any kind back then but most I saw were for Trump. Most biden signs are homemade and look like the makers wrote "biden" in crayon after drinking a fifth of cheap vodka.


I will get all of these into one post...............................

Professor who has predicted presidential winners since 1984 makes his 2020 pick

Chooses Biden - explains why - and most of the readers here are aware that the "reasons of his choice" were PROMOTED by the DNC and the COMPLICIT MSM... (which he does NOT mention, nor the MSM "interviewer"...)
