83% drop in refugee admissions

Oct-Nov 2016: 18,300 refugees were admitted to the U.S.
Oct-Nov 2017: 3,108 refugees were admitted to the U.S.


  • The Trump administration announced it has pulled out of the United Nation’s U.N. for global responsibility-sharing for refugees and migrants initiative. Nikki Haley, our ambassador to the United Nations, said the initiative “is simply not compatible with U.S. sovereignty.”
  • SCOTUS ruled to allow the Trump administration to fully enforce its travel ban on residents from six radical regimes and failed states, including Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen, and on officials from North Korea and Venezuela.

Thursday Tidbits

Just got into a battle of wits with a guy on a Chicago Bears fanblog, of all things. It wasn’t a fair fight. He went off on a rant about teams “whiteballing” that racist punk Colin Kaepernick just because he wouldn’t stand for that “raggedy-ass flag.” That hit a sore spot with your intrepid reporter. I told him better men than him have died for his right to spread his racist horseshit, usually using all caps for emphasis. It’s been bad enough being a Bears fan the past few years, but some people just can’t help but inject their grievances into any conversation.

North Korean Defector Describes In Detail Kim Jong Un’s Extremely Brutal Executions

“The musicians were brought out, tied up, hooded and apparently gagged, so they could not make a noise, not beg for mercy or even scream,” Hee Yeon explained. “They were lashed to the end of anti-aircraft guns.”

“A gun was fired, the noise was deafening, absolutely terrifying and the guns were fired one after the other,” she said. “The musicians just disappeared each time the guns were fired into them. Their bodies were blown to bits, totally destroyed, blood and bits flying everywhere.”

Hee Yeon revealed that Kim’s henchman plucked North Korean schoolgirls from their homes to work as sex slaves.

“Officials came to our schools and picked out teenage girls to work at one of his ‘hundreds’ of homes around Pyongyang,” Hee Yeon said. “They take the prettiest and ensure they have straight, good legs.”

“They have to sleep with him and they cannot make a mistake or object because they could very easily simply disappear,” she explained to reporters, citing reports from one of her friends.

“Now, the legislation that we passed was full of things that still need to be fixed.

The Young Democrats tweeted Wednesday at about 12:20 p.m. that the next “protest” in response to the not-guilty verdict in the Jason Stockley trial was planned for Wednesday evening, instructing rioters where to show up and at what time, hashtagging #Black Lives Matter on the tweet.

Leftists Get Kids Cancer Fundraiser Cancelled Because It was At Trump Golf Course

The “Tri at the Trump” triathlon to raise money for kids with cancer was cancelled this week.

Leftists complained about the name.  Even after the organizers changed the name to “Tri for Good” the bitter leftists were still upset so the organizers cancelled the event.

But this year, the Tri at the Trump organizers say potential participants were triggered by the Trump name, and, over the summer, the group received several aggressive complaints about both the event, and the Trump National Golf Course.

Trump Declares War!

At any rate, you would think so if you listened to the lefts’ reaction to his remarkable speech to the U.N. yesterday. He served notice to one and all that he was, indeed, in charge. He called out North Korea, Iran, and Venezuela, and called terrorists what they are: radical Islamists, words that Barack Obama could never manage to utter. His address was welcomed by the right and left the socio-communists in horror.

Freak Out: ABC Assails Trump Speech as ‘Bordering on Threat’ of ‘War Crime’

ABC journalist Terry Moran suffered a full meltdown as he reacted to Donald Trump’s United Nations speech on Tuesday. The network’s chief foreign correspondent condemned the President’s warning to North Korea as “bordering on the threat of a war crime.” Bizarrely, he claimed that the speech, which warned Iran and condemned socialism in Venezuela, was one Vladimir Putin would give and that dictators everywhere would love.

Hillary says Trump’s UN speech was ‘very DARK’ and ‘DANGEROUS’
The Hillinator is still being asked to comment on stuff and I have no idea why, but she thinks her opinion still matters to Americans. It’s sad really.  Uhm… yeah I mean she might have a point but no one cares what Hillary says. And in fact, according to the lovely and brilliant Dana Perino, who is no fan of Trump, the speech was well received by the right and those in the center.

Trump slams Venezuela at UN; Maduro calls him ‘Hitler’

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro hit back by calling the U.S. president “the new Hitler” of international politics. He also accused Trump of threatening to assassinate him, even though Trump did no such thing. What Trump threatened was to build upon sweeping economic sanctions that the U.S. slapped on Venezuela last month if Maduro “persists on a path to impose authoritarian rule.”

CNN Rolls Out Their Obama Alumni To Attack Trump’s Speech
Both national security reporter Jim Sciutto — a former Obama appointee — and analyst John Kirby — a former State Department spokesman whose job it was to defend the Iran deal during the Obama years — attacked Trump’s speech.

CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer declined to inform CNN’s viewers of Sciutto’s previous tenure in the Obama administration, presenting him as an objective reporter on Trump’s speech, in which the president attacked the Iran deal — one of the defining pillars of Obama’s legacy — as a national embarrassment.

‘Holy Sh**’: Trump at the U.N.
A Jacksonian speech in Turtle Bay

As someone said on Twitter, never before has been there so much murmuring of “holy sh**” in so many different languages. Donald Trump’s speech at the United Nations was a sometimes awkward marriage of conventional Republican foreign policy and a very basic version of Trump’s nationalism.

Trump Hits Home Run for America in UN Speech
President Trump gave his first official speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday morning, and was immediately berated by the New York Times (Trump’s “characteristically confrontational message”) and the Washington Post (“Trump’s menacing United Nations speech, annotated”). Sen. Dianne Feinstein lambasted him for words that “greatly escalated the danger” from Iran and North Korea. And the foreign minister of Venezuela’s socialist dictatorship, Jorge Arreaza — apparently trying to formulate some sort of supreme insult — compared Trump in 2017 to President Ronald Reagan in 1982.  With that kind of reaction, you might just start to suspect that Trump did something right.

The Donald Does the U.N.

Days after four Americans were butchered on September 11, 2012, then-president Barack Obama went before the gaseous tinpots at the United Nations and apologized profusely for a non-existent video he conveniently blamed for what he knew full well to be a terrorist attack. With an election six weeks away, no price was too great to pay to keep up the charade until afterward … as long as somebody else paid the price. He loved and respected the foreign squatters because they hated Americans and Jews as viscerally as he did.

[CtH:  The Lord hates liars.” Proverbs 12:22.  Just sayin’.]

President Trump is giving a formal address before the UN today.  Expect his attitude to be far, far different. He gave a taste yesterday, making it clear he put America first and they had to make a lot of different decisions or be left behind. Personally I’ve always resented these dipsticks shouting “diplomatic immunity” every time they break the law, which is constant.

Trump ​slams the UN in his first UN appearance

President Trump used his first official visit to the United Nations on Monday to criticize the world body for not living up to its “potential,” and urged member nations to reject “business as usual” and take “bold stands.”

“In recent years, the United Nations has not reached its full potential because of ​​bureaucracy and mismanagement​,​”​ Trump said during a meeting about reforms.

Trump Promotes Nationalism, Threatens War At UN

President Donald Trump delivered his first address to the United Nations Tuesday in a speech that espoused nationalism, while at the same time threatening multiple “rogue regimes.”

Trump campaigned on a nationalist platform and at times criticized the UN itself and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

“As President of the United States I will always put America first,” Trump said at the UN General Assembly, adding that all nations should seek to put their own people first.

“Rocket Man is on a suicide mission” President Trump SLAMS Kim Jong Un

Listen up, UN — Trump means what he’s telling you

To all you be-suited, be-spectacled, and soon-to-be-bewildered diplomats slogging around the United Nations General Assembly this week, try to understand this: Donald Trump means every word of what he’s going to tell you. Which is: the United States is done with being blamed for everything that goes wrong in the world, and then paying to fix it.

For decades since the UN’s founding in 1945, ambassadors and their ever-sprawling staffs have lived, eaten and parked at taxpayer expense, enjoying a life far beyond the means most of them could ever hope to afford in their homelands.

Bolton: Trump’s U.N. Speech the Best of His Presidency

“I think it’s safe to say, in the entire history of the United Nations, there has never been a more straightforward criticism of the behavior, the unacceptable behavior of other member states,” Bolton said.

In addition, he said Trump’s critiques of the nuclear deal revealed the White House would not tolerate “half-measures and compromises” that allowed Iran and North Korea to progress to the verge of having deliverable nuclear weapons.

Ex-Hillary Adviser: Dems Must Double Down on ‘Identity Politics’

New York Times reporter Nick Confessore pointed out that it is impossible for Democrats to be a majority party “absent a coalition of a substantial number of working-class white voters.” He pointed out that every Democrat who was won the presidency, including former President Barack Obama, has won over working-class white voters in places like Macomb County, Michigan. Confessore said that if Democrats don’t appeal to these voters, they will continue to be a “minority party for years to come.”

Sub-Chicago and America’s Real Crime Rate

Neighborhood, not citywide, crime data show how deadly some portions of American cities have become—especially Chicago’s West and South Sides.

During the 365-day period beginning June 7, 2016, Chicago had 711 first- and second-degree homicides. Of those, 556 (or 78.1 percent) occurred in just ten of the city’s police districts. Those districts—which are contiguous—constitute a geographical area almost half the city’s size and house 40.3 percent of the city’s nearly 2.7 million residents.

Hillary’s ‘What Happened’ Conveniently Ignores One Of The Campaign’s Biggest Scandals
“What Happened” conveniently ignores one of the election’s biggest scandals: then-Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile’s leaking of debate questions to Clinton during the Democratic primary — a clear-cut example of DNC officials rigging the primary in favor of Clinton.

The fact that Brazile leaked questions to Clinton before two different primary debates only came out when WikiLeaks published stolen emails from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta in October.

She dismisses reporting about the leaked emails as the media inventing a story out of nothing.

Moss concluded that whereas getting power back could be a challenge, “all in all, I think we’re going to be back to business very quickly.”

Four Minutes to Destiny

While doing research for today’s screeds, I came across a tidbit that said in the event that little pig in North Korea launched a missile, the president would have approximately four minutes to decide whether it was a nuclear device and what to do about it. We all know what Obama would have done… go on vacation somewhere. Trump has largely been a disappointment, allowing one adviser after another lead him in different directions. His vacillating on a promise to deport illegals of all ages may be due to Javanka having his ear. In any case, I think he’s smart enough to leave the military decisions to the professionals, something that Barry never would have done, seeing how he’s the smartest man who ever lived and all.

The United Nations wants to do what they always do in a crisis… blame Israel and grab US taxpayer money. The resolutions they churn out are as useless as tits on a boar hog, as my grandfather used to say. W wasted 14 long months getting resolution after resolution from the UN, just to try to satisfy the democrats, which is always a fool’s errand. Saddam must have thought we were a bunch of fools as he hid his chemical weapons and military ordnance in Syria before we finally took decisive action.

My fear is that Kim Jong Un cares nothing about the consequences of an attack on Guam, Japan, or mainland USA. He’s like a modern day Caligula, having absolute power of life and death over an entire country. He allows people to starve while he hoards a massive food supply for himself and the army that keeps him in power. He has built a system of hardened shelters deep underground and could survive for a very long time if he had to. This clown is famous for killing his own family, what does he care about millions of innocent people?

Emergency Security Council Meeting Called

The latest test, which nuclear weapon experts estimated was seven times more powerful than the bomb the U.S. dropped on Hiroshima, Japan in 1945, was condemned by Secretary General Antonio Guterres, who called the act a “serious breach” of the country’s international obligations.

North Korea Nuclear Progress Puts Iran on Renewed Pathway to Bomb

Sources told the Washington Free Beacon that Pyongyang continues to stockpile illicit nuclear material on Iran’s behalf in order to help the Islamic Republic skirt restrictions implemented under the landmark nuclear deal

North Korea’s latest nuclear test of a hydrogen bomb has roiled Trump administration officials and led President Donald Trump to consider multiple options for war. However, it also has renewed fears among U.S. officials and foreign policy insiders about Pyongyang’s long-standing relationship with Iran, which centers on providing the Islamic Republic with nuclear technology and know-how.
