Make America GREAT AGAIN by Deporting Violent Protesters Sporting Mexican Flags!

California is correctly known as the most liberal-infested entity in America. Liberals, most if not all of whom suffer from debilitating brain damage, are prone to add the word ‘Tolerant’ to the resume of this extreme-left fortress of communism and repository of anti-American hatred.

However, California’s tolerance is anything but universal.

It is, in fact, based on partisan, ideological sentiments and is very discriminating… especially, when it comes to extravagant, non-PC free speech of the sort which was expected at a Donald Trump rally and appearance at a GOP state convention at southern and northern California venues on Thursday and Friday.

Indeed, California’s self-perpetuated, ill-founded reputation for being ‘diverse’ and ‘inclusive’ was brutally mocked by violent protests staged by hundreds of thugs, many sporting Mexican flags, as out-of-control liberals sought to silence The Donald and prevent his free speech presidential plea from being disseminated.

Which reiterates the fact that liberals are diverse and inclusive only AS LONG AS ONE SUBSCRIBES TO THE ANTI-CAPITALISM, ANTI-AMERICAN, ANTI-CAUCASIAN PAP OF PROGRESSIVE THOUGHT!

Such thinking makes patriotic notions such as AMERICA FIRST, MAKE AMERICA GREAT, and AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM the works of evil doers and hate mongers, at least in the minds of mindless thugs.

Donald Trump’s disfavor among California liberals and violent protesters is exacerbated by his lily white complexion and obsession with speaking the truth, which is made all the worse by the fact that he is a self-sufficient man of considerable accomplishment whom has never feasted at an Obama-sponsored public trough of food stamps, welfare, or other government programs designed to transfer wealth from those who work, to those too lazy, and or stupid, to do so.

Adding to his disgrace is the fact that Donald Trump paid for his own cell phone and does not look to Obama for help with mortgage or car payments!

Trump’s disfavor among illegal aliens was made evident by the prominent display of Mexican flags among the violent protestors, and was a reflection of the fact that The Donald’s positions on the wall between Mexico and the US, and his ideas on deportations, do not auger especially well with illegal aliens and their ill-advised advocates.

Still, one has to question the origin of all that affection for the Mexican flag. After all, Mexico is a 3rd-world, failed socialist state which would never tolerate the sort of violence and rebellion on display in America.

Further, Mexico is a poverty-ridden hell hole that cannot, or will not, feed its own people!

So, just what is there about Mexico to love?

Perhaps a partial solution to the violence at conservative events is to pluck out those violent protesters carrying Mexican flags and fast track them to trains, busses, aircraft, moats, mules and other means of transport that will deliver the thugs on a one-way journey back to their beloved cesspool known as Mexico!

Perhaps then The Trump movement can function with the protections guaranteed by the First Amendment to the American Constitution!

GOP Demands Prison Term, Fine for Illegal Immigrants

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — A group of House Republicans is calling for up to six months imprisonment, criminal fines, or both for any immigrant who knowingly enters the U.S. illegally.

Rep. John Culberson, R-Texas, and six other Republicans proposed the legislation in order to boost security in the face of continued illegal entry through the southern U.S. border. He proposed two other bills that are also aimed at creating disincentives for people to enter the country illegally.

“When this legislation is enacted, every illegal alien over the age of eighteen will be prosecuted wherever they’re found, criminal illegal aliens will be deported swiftly after serving their sentences, and existing law will be enforced with zero tolerance from Brownsville to San Diego,” he said.

Culberson’s bill requiring imprisonment is the Interior Immigration Enforcement Act. The two-page bill simply states that “any alien who is age 18 or older” and enters the country “shall be fined … or imprisoned not more than 6 months, or both.”

Veracruz Brigade in Search of Disappeared Find 500 Skeletal Remains

BORDERLAND BEAT — The result of the stay of the Brigada Nacional en Busca de Personas Desaparecidas en Veracruz (National Brigade in Search of Disappeared Persons in Veracruz) was the location of at least 500 human remains, all of which were torn apart by cutting machinery, stained with soot by the temperatures to which they were subjected to; 72 cases of disappearances; with the majority not even having a report and 60 samples of DNA from the relatives of the missing were taken, along with genetic profiles that will be compared to with the human remains that the group is protecting.

Previous Story: Veracruz: 11 Clandestine Graves Found With Charred Remains

Written by: Miguel Ángel León Carmona | Translated by Valor for Borderland Beat

Amatlán de Los Reyes, Veracruz, April 25, 2016 — In 15 days, the National Brigade in Search of Disappeared Persons not only aired the smells of death in the central area of the state of Veracruz; they also exhibited to the Attorney General of Luis Ángel Bravo Contreras, the department that called the skeletal remains found in 15 clandestine “kitchens” pieces of wood.

Later, he recanted the absurdity published in the press release. He apologized to the families affected.

The result of the stay in Veracruz lands was the location of at least 500 skeletal remains, all of them torn apart by cutting machinery and were stained with soot due to the high temperature at which they were subjected to.

Searchers from six Mexican states: Guerrero, Coahuila, Sinaloa, Chihuahua, Morelos y Baja California, tracked down around 20 points, in eight municipalities in central Veracruz, all of which have been identified as potential sowing fields for corpses: Acutlzingo, Nogales, Huiloapan, Ixtaczoquitlán, Córdoba, Amatlán, Omealca and Paso del Macho.

The versions given by anonymous people coincide with the statement of Manuel Antonio Mirón Rebolledo, Representative of Forensic Services in the region of Córdoba-Veracruz, who said that municipalities identified as red flags are Orizaba, Mendoza and Córdoba, where they have 400 folders of investigation of missing persons, from 2015 to date.

In addition, the group Córdoba – Orizaba, represented by Araceli Salcedo Jiménez, mother of Rubí Salcedo, a kidnapped youth allegedly by Los Zetas, documented 72 cases of disappearances; the majority don’t even have a denouncement.

Mexican Cartel Throws Grenade Near Kindergarten Class South of Texas

BREITBART — CIUDAD VICTORIA — Cartel gunmen lobbed a grenade near a packed kindergarten class as the children were outside celebrating a special event. The explosive device did not go off, but caused terror in this city that for weeks has been subjected to unending violence between rival factions of Los Zetas.

The grenade attack took place on Thursday morning when a group of cartel gunmen threw the grenade at a house in the Teocaltiche neighborhood. The house is right next to a kindergarten where the children had been holding their “Dia del Niño” or Day of the Children celebration. In response to the explosive device, the Mexican army evacuated the school as military personnel went into the house to retrieve the grenade. The celebration at the school was cancelled and the children sent home.

The attack near the school came just two days after a team of cartel gunmen rained gunfire at a business called “Casino Magnific” injuring five customers. The gambling parlor is just 500 yards from the governor’s mansion. The gunmen managed to flee in two separate vehicles eluding authorities who responded to the scene.Medical personnel rushed the injured customers to local hospitals, their condition remains unknown.

Consistent Surge of People Crossing Illegally

KRGV — BROWNSVILLE – The number of people crossing the border illegally is on the rise. The Border Patrol chief said the number of people coming across is consistent with the surge two years ago.

Chief Patrol Agent and Commander of the South Texas Corridor Manuel Padilla Jr. insisted this time, his agents are better prepared and border security isn’t in jeopardy.

However, some people don’t agree.

More than 80,000 people crossed the border illegally since October. It includes more unaccompanied children and family members from Central America and Mexico.

It’s about the same as during the immigration crisis of 2014.

But Padilla said this time, it’s different.

Pentagon Warns of Conflict Over Chinese Buildup on Disputed Island

WASHINGTON FREE BEACON — China’s plans to build up a disputed island near the Philippines could lead to a regional conflict, Defense Secretary Ash Carter told Congress on Thursday.

Carter was asked about the strategic significance of China’s plan to add military facilities to a disputed island known as Scarborough Shoal located about 120 miles—within missile range—of Subic Bay, Philippines, where U.S. warships will be based.

The defense secretary said Scarborough is “a piece of disputed territory that, like other disputes in that region, has the potential to lead to military conflict.”

“That’s particularly concerning to us, given its proximity to the Philippines,” Carter told a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on efforts to counter the Islamic State terrorist group.

Carter said the Pentagon has similar views about a number of island disputes in the South China Sea, where China has been claiming most of the sea as its maritime territory and demanding that other states, including the United States, keep out of the region.

China’s Hypersonic Glider Passes New Test

DEFENSE TECH — China has successfully completed a seventh flight test of its new hypersonic glide vehicle last week in its northern central Shanxi province, according to an article on People’s Daily Online.

The “DF-ZF” glider can travel at speeds between Mach 5 and Mach 10, which is 5 to 10 times the speed of sound.

The Chinese news site reported that U.S. intelligence fears that Beijing may use DF-ZF to “deliver nuclear weapons bypassing even the most complex of missile defense systems,” citing an article in the Washington Free Beacon.

Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman first confirmed China’s hypersonic missile test in March 2015, saying that the missile test was not aimed at any country and was done for scientific research, according to the People’s Daily online.

The U.S. Air Force has made some progress in developing its own hypersonic weapon, which is based on the success of an experimental scramjet program.

Immigration/Marriage Fraud Indictments and Chain Migration

CENTER FOR IMMIGRATION STUDIES — If it had not been for the terrorist shootings in San Bernardino, CA, an immigration/marriage fraud situation would probably have gone unnoticed by the authorities.

But because of the killings by Syed Rizwan Farook and the woman he brought to the United States as his alien bride, Tashfeen Malik, the fraudulent marriage between Farook’s friend, Enrique Marquez Jr., and Mariya Chernykh has now — months later — led to yesterday’s immigration fraud indictments against the three people in the middle of the chart below:

Russian Fighter Jet Barrel Rolls Over U.S. Reconnaissance Plane

WASHINGTON TIMES — A Russian fighter jet has yet again performed a barrel roll over a U.S. reconnaissance plane flying in international airspace over the Baltic Sea, U.S. officials said, in a dangerous maneuver that violates standard protocols.

It’s the second such “unsafe” intercept this month. A Russian jet conducted a similar maneuver less than two weeks ago.

The Friday incident, first reported by CNN, involved an Su-27 jet and an RC-135 reconnaissance plane.

The encounter comes just two days after Defense Secretary Ash Carter said he thought the Russians would “knock it off” after high level military-to-military discussions with Moscow. “These pilots need to get the word, hey, knock it off. This is unprofessional. This is dangerous. This could lead somewhere,” Carter told senators.

S.C. Health Officials Report 1st Case of Travel-Related Zika

WASHINGTON TIMES — COLUMBIA, S.C. — Public health officials say the first South Carolinian to test positive for Zika virus contracted it while traveling abroad and wasn’t contagious upon returning home.

The Department of Health and Environmental Control announced the case Friday.

Dr. Teresa Foo told The Associated Press the person went to the doctor as a precaution, though symptoms experienced while traveling had subsided. Foo gave no details on the person or the trip, citing patient confidentiality.

There have been 426 cases of Zika reported in 50 states – all linked to travel to outbreak areas. The virus is primarily spread through mosquitoes.

Zika causes a mild and brief illness, at worst, in most people, with symptoms including fever, rash and joint pain. But infections in pregnant women have been linked to a brain defect.

Supreme Court Allows Texas to Enforce Its Controversial Voter ID Law

FNL — WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court on Friday allowed Texas to enforce its controversial voter ID law.

It rejected an emergency appeal that claimed the law had a discriminatory effect on minority voters.

The court, however, said it could revisit the issue as the November elections approach.

The law has been in effect for recent elections, even after a trial judge struck it down in 2014.

The challengers in the ongoing lawsuit argue there is no reason to allow the requirement to show picture identification at the polls to remain in place.

But justices rejected the plea in a brief order Friday. The full New Orleans-based appeals court will hold a new hearing on the Texas law in May.

Islamic State-Linked Hackers Target Thousands of New Yorkers in Online List

ASIA TIMES — An Islamic State (IS) online “hit list” has targeted roughly 3,000 New York City-area residents. Local law enforcement says most are private citizens with no government ties.

NYC-1The list contains upwards of 3,600 names and is intended as a scare campaign to sow terror over the Internet. Reports say it includes the names of some US State Department and Homeland Security employees. But the bulk contains personal information on private citizens from the metropolitan area. It was posted on a site accessible to only IS supporters by an IS-related group called Caliphate Cyber United.

Authorities say the list doesn’t single out any particular person or group for retribution. Reuters reported that it includes names, home addresses and email addresses. Some of the information appears to be outdated, according to a source, who was not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly.

The FBI and New York City Police Department reportedly plan to visit the homes of those named in the list. In a statement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said, “While our standard practice is to decline comment on specific operational and investigative matters, the FBI routinely notifies individuals and organizations of information collected during the course of an investigation that may be perceived as potentially threatening in nature.”

Chicago Criminals Avoid Gun Shows, Internet Sales, Buy Guns on Street

BREITBART — A new study conducted by the University of Chicago Crime Lab, inmates in the Cook County jail said they get they guns on the streets from “personal connections” rather that outlets like guns shows and the Internet.

The study focused on “inmates who were facing gun charges or whose criminal background involved gun crimes.”

According to the Chicago-Tribune, Crime lab co-director Harold Pollack said the study shows that “some of the pathways [regarding guns] people are concerned about don’t seem so dominant.” He said very few inmates indicated using gun shows or the internet. Rather, they get the guns in undetectable ways on the street. He said the inmates know they run the risk of being caught by police but “were less concerned about getting caught by the cops than being put in the position of not having a gun to defend themselves and then getting shot.”

The vast majority of the inmates used handguns to commit their crimes or protect themselves, very few cited using “military-style assault weapons.” And they said their habit was to get rid of a gun after one year because of the “legal liability” of being caught with a gun that could be linked to crimes they or others committed.”

As for specifics regarding sources for purchasing guns, some of the inmates indicated that gangs have individuals with a Firearm Owners Identification Card who buy guns then sell them to gang members. Others indicated using “corrupt cops” who seize guns then “put them back on the street.”

The inmates made clear they do not walk into gun stores to buy guns. Which proves a point Breitbart News, Gun Owners of America, and other gun rights groups have made for years; namely, that background checks place a burden on law-abiding citizens which criminals easily avoid.

American Veteran News 04.30.16

MEMPHIS VA HAS 4 SUSPICIOUS DEATHS ON ITS HANDS — DAILY CALLER — There are four suspicious deaths in the spinal cord wing of the Memphis Veteran Affairs Medical Center (VAMC), according to two new complaints to the Office of Special Counsel (OSC).

The Daily Caller exclusively received these two complaints both emailed on April 27, 2016, to the OSC; the complainants wish to remain anonymous.

“The drains in the bathrooms were in adequate along with the ventilation system. Gross misuse of staff and HUGE infection control issue.”

One complainant stated recounting a conversation they had with the Chief of the Spinal Cord Unit, Dr. Sandra Kirkland. “When I asked her about my concerns of feces overflowing and going into other pts [patients] rooms and the concern about pat (patient) and the bowel trainer being enclosed in a small area with adequate ventilation she responded, ‘Don’t you think if there was an issue the engineers would have been up here?’ 30 minutes later I spoke with Alice a nurse on 1 East who informed me that the Engineers HAD been alerted and had come up to investigate because the leakage was affecting the places underneath the area. In other words it was leaking through the ceiling down stairs.”


GOP LAWMAKERS QUESTION MISSING BIBLES AT VA CLINICS — THE HILL — A group of lawmakers are expressing concern about Bibles that they say were removed from display at Veterans Affairs clinics.

The leaders of the Congressional Prayer Caucus — Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) and Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.) — are demanding the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) replace Bibles they say were removed from displays at three clinics around the country.

“We request an explanation as to why the Bibles were removed from the three VA facilities,” Lankford, Forbes, and dozens of other lawmakers wrote Thursday in a letter to VA Secretary Robert McDonald.

The Bibles were part of the Missing Man Table displays, which honor members of the military who are missing in action. “One of the objects on the table is a Bible, meant to ‘represent the strength gained through faith to sustain us and those lost from our country, founded as one nation under God,” they wrote.

According to the lawmakers, VA staffers removed the Bibles from Missing Man Table displays in Ohio and Texas following complaints from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.

The lawmakers argued the Bibles should be replaced because they say they do not violate the constitution principle of the separation of church and state.

“The Establishment Clause does not require that you remove Bibles from the Missing Man Table displays,” the lawmakers wrote. “The mere presence of a Bible coerces no one.”

“The Establishment Clause exists to ensure that the government cannot affirmatively impose or elevate on religion over another,” they added. “However, it does not prohibit the government from referencing religion altogether, nor does it require the government to scrub all references of religion from the public square.”

Lutz’s position for Milvets was created two years ago in the wake of a Columbia student and military veteran’s suicide. Now Lutz, on behalf of Milvets , is partnering with Counseling and Psychological Services and School of General Studies administrators to expand mental health resources for veterans.


VIETNAM VET RECEIVES MEDALS 48 YEARS AFTER WAR — USAF — SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. — “It’s been quite a day for me,” said an emotional retired Army Sergeant Cecil Wade after he received the Purple Heart, the Army Commendation Medal with Valor and a second bronze star device for his Vietnam Service Medal in a ceremony at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois, April 22, 2016.

“I even polished my boots for the occasion,” he said, which brought a chuckle from the more than 600 attendees who came to witness the official ceremony in the base’s library auditorium.

Those in the audience included his wife, Kriste, his father-in-law–a World War II veteran–Eugene Smith, and Kriste’s cousin, Linda Cameron and her husband–also a Vietnam Vet, who served in the Army’s 1st Calvary Division–Gary. Army Col. Kevin Lynch, who is assigned to the Defense Information Systems Agency at SAFB, presided over the ceremony.

Wade led About 50 Patriot Guard and Combat Vets Motorcycle Association members in formation onto base for the event.


MEMORIAL ERECTED TO WWII 10TH MOUNTAIN DIVISION SOLDIERS — WWNY — A memorial is being dedicated in Italy to 25 American soldiers — most from the 10th Mountain Division — who drowned in an Alpine lake when their amphibious vehicle sank during World War II.

The marble monument is being dedicated in the northern Italian village of Torbole on Saturday, the 71st anniversary of the sinking of the vehicle known as a DUKW.

The dead included 24 members of the 10th Mountain Division and a soldier from another unit.

The vehicle sank after a storm blew up while they were crossing Lake Garda on the night of April 30, 1945. Their bodies were never recovered. A 26th soldier survived the sinking.

Three Vietnam-era American veterans helped raise $5,000 for the memorial.

The monument bears the names of the 25 soldiers, along with the insignia of the 10th Mountain, based in northern New York since the mid-1980s.


VIETNAM VETERAN RETURNS TO FIND REMAINS OF FELLOW MARINE — CARSON NOW — In his quest to find the remains of his boyhood friend and fellow Marine lost to the mountains of Vietnam, Michael Archer met a solider for the other side.

Archer’s latest book, “The Long Goodbye,” traces the story of Lance Corporal Thomas Patrick Mahoney III, who disappeared during the bloody, months-long Battle of Khe Sanh.

“He was one of the last people killed when we were abandoning the hill,” Archer said.

Although Archer was fighting in the same battle, he was in a different unit. Later, some of the Marines in Mahoney’s unit approached Archer, a known historian and avid researcher.

“They felt they left him behind,” Archer said. “That they abandoned him.”

Understanding survivor’s guilt and post-traumatic stress disorder himself, Archer agreed to help them track down what happened to their mutual friend.

HOW TO GET THE ATTENTION OF RECRUITERS — MILCOM — As you begin the transition to a civilian career, you are likely faced with a job search. Getting your resume to the right recruiters, in the right way, is a big part of your career strategy.

Recruiters are constantly approached by job seekers via Monster.com and other job sites, through their company website, via email, and in person. How do you ensure your resume will stand out?

Jessica Miller-Merrell, host of the Workology Podcast, is President/CEO of Xceptional HR and a leader in the human resources field. She suggests job applicants approach recruiters about opportunities with their company, even if a position is not posted.

Miller-Merrell offers advises we “Use the power of the internet combined with email messages to engage, customize, and create an impression with recruiters and hiring managers that encourages them to learn more about you. While the job search process is a numbers game, you can stack the odds in your favor by customizing your messages and tapping into your professional network in creative, targeted ways.”

Here’s a look at five common myths that could derail your expectations for income when you retire.


SENATE LEGISLATION SHRINKS GI BILL HOUSING ALLOWANCE OVER TIME — MILCOM — Senate lawmakers on Thursday approved an omnibus Veterans Affairs bill they say expands programs without paying for them at the expense of others by reworking the GI Bill housing payment to mirror that received by active-duty members.

The nearly 400-page Veterans First Act approved by the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee does not, for example, include a provision to cut the housing allowance for children going to college on a parent’s GI Bill — a controversial measure that is part of the House Veterans Affairs Committee package.

“The way this is being paid for doesn’t damage the benefits of veterans who receive in other areas,” Sen. Jerry Moran, a Republican from Kansas, said during a group press conference on Thursday morning. “So we’re not taking away a benefit to pay for another benefit.”

However, a source told Military.com on Thursday the legislation does roll back spending elsewhere.
