    When Will Trump Turn Off NPR Tap! 


    NPR (‘National Public Radio’) is an anachronism,  if there was EVER any justification for a state broadcaster in a land as teeming with media as the USA.

    I know President Trump has been busy but he really needs to find time to root out the leftists who have, as in other countries’ state-funded media…

    Murdered Pole – EuroNews Smears Brexiteers! 

    EuroNews, Devoid of Principle, Stages a Clinton Rally! 

     

    ..or the BBC…Will the BBC EVER Be Pro-British?  …or France24…Fake Swede Feminism – Can’t France24’s Left Oz-Bint Get It Right?   ….or DW…Deutsche Welle – Merkel’s Media Lap-Dog Snarls At Poland! 

    …somehow gotten control and are oblivious of their duty to play fair with the tax-dollars they slurp up hoggishly.

    All that’s been said before, of course, but NPR’s latest stunt, handing a megaphone to pro-crimmigrant agitprop ‘activists…

    =

    NPR logo

    =

     …and adding insult to injury by describing the far-left pressure group as ‘advocates’ spurs me once more to draw my American readers’ attention to the problem.

    I have perused the transcript carefully, as you can, to make sure I’m not misrepresenting it, and the NPR ‘host,’ Noel King by name, leads off with a melodramatic intro, viz.

    Parts of Central America are torn by severe gang violence, and so we’re seeing an uptick in the number of migrant teenagers crossing into this country. President Trump has said many of these kids are gang members themselves and they should be sent back. But

    Of course there’s a BUT, if the elected President is mentioned on leftist media, and here we go..

    …but as reporter Jessie Knadler reports, immigrant advocates say most of them just need help.

    Illogically, having claimed that the pro-crimmigrant ‘advocates’ are talking about ‘MOST’ illegal alien youth, the said ‘advocates‘ are focusing NPR listeners’ attention NOT on what NPR terms the ‘vast majority released to family or shelters across the country while they wait for their cases to be heard in immigration court.

    No way.

    Instead, the programme is entirely into the worst of them, ‘about 200 a year deemed dangerous, either to themselves or others,‘ who very wisely are locked up!

    =

    =

    So we have to listen to a pinko poetry prof given to dropping in on the savages at their ‘maximum-security juvenile detention facility,’ and to the gang-bangers’ ‘poetry…’

    =

    ( ‘ With no reason to exist, I often forget that I am real, and this makes my soul ache ‘ – yeah, seriously!)

    =====

    …and then to a far-left shrill named Holly Cooper. She is co-director of something called the Immigration Law Clinic at the University of California, who breathlessly amazes us with the revelation that ‘being in a cell is traumatic… “

    BOO HOO HOO!

    The so-called reporter, Knadler, makes no effort to challenge the daft bint’s waffle, preferring to act as a Little Sir Echo, e.g.

    She says many don’t even understand why they’re detained… these minors are in a legal no man’s land….

    On and on, and remember, that’s not the far-left interviewee, but the ‘objective’ reporter?

    Aaah, but eventually, he realises that people like me are wondering if he ever studied basic principles of journalism.

    Another pinko jerk named Lenni Benson, from New York Law School’s Safe Passage Project, has been wittering, when finally Knadler gives a brief airing to normal people’s thoughts –

    But Trump says that the violent MS-13 gang, which has ties in Central America, is exploiting this system. His administration wants to close loopholes that he says allow gang members to enter the country as unaccompanied alien children, or UACs. Scott Lloyd, director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement, also testified before Congress they’re ramping up gang prevention.

    =

    Scott Lloyd’s voice is heard – one sentence!

    =

    Then Knadler shows us his valiant commitment to ensure that leftwing concerns get the lion’s share of the broadcast.

    “At the Shenandoah Juvenile Center in Virginia, there’s another legal fight. A lawsuit alleges beatings and psychological abuse by guards. Officials at the center have denied the allegations. Professor Michelson says his poetry sessions helped the kids.

    Oh For Pete’s Sakes!

    ‘Poetry gives them a language to think about what they’ve been through, who they are, who they’d like to be, in ways that are potentially transformative.’

    And that’s it.

    One mention of Trump’s views and one short bit of input from Mr. Lloyd, as compared to the pinko poetry prof, plus Horrid Holly, plus Lefty Lenni, then back to the pinko poetry prof again…?

    BUT…

    Knadler’s not done. Here’s his grand pink finale, a plug for the prof’s propaganda publication!

    Late last year, he published a book of poetry from the kids called “Dreaming America.”

    After that, officials at the center asked him not to return. Proceeds from sales go to a legal defense fund on their behalf. For NPR News, I’m Jessie Knadler in Virginia.’ 

    Advocates Say Teen Migrants Need Help Not Held In Detention …

    Ain’t that something, all those SWEET little brutes in their maximum security centre…

    Uppity UN Arab Rants Again – Fire The Prattling Princeling! 


    “I am deeply concerned about the current overriding focus of EU States on preventing migrants from reaching Europe, and rushing to deport many who do.”

    UN rights chief attacks EU and US over migrants and Dreamer

    Never mind they don’t prevent LEGAL ‘migrants‘ reaching Europe…

    HOW DARE HE CRITICISE DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENTS?

    =

    =

    HE’S NEVER BEEN ELECTED IN ANY FREE AND FAIR ELECTION, AS ALL HIS TARGETS HAVE!

    Why are European and American tax-payers paying the arrogant Arab’s hefty salary, which, as a super-rich prince, he hardly needs!

    Why, indeed, are they still funding an agency which he…

    (and his predecessors, to be fair – Ephialtes Enthroned – Another Enemy Running The UN! )

    …have turned into a propaganda agitprop outfit with a familiar and offensive refrain.

    Uppity UN Flunkey – “Austrian Democracy Is ‘Dangerous!” 

    Declare This Arrogant Arab ‘Persona Non Grata!’

    So it’s hardly the first time this uppity Jordanian, Prince Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, has overstepped the mark, demanding that sovereign nation-states step back from the defence of their borders against illegal alien hordes.

    He’s not only selective about the ‘rights’ we keep hearing about…

    ..

    UN Prince’s ‘Rhetoric of Fascism?’ – Check Out Arab Laws! 

    …as well as uppity, he’s also a liar, as with this little outburst, directed against America.

    “Detentions and deportations of long-standing and law-abiding migrants have sharply increased, tearing families apart and creating enormous hardship.”

    Law-abiding?

    So far as I know, LAW-ABIDING ‘migrants,‘ people who entered the USA LEGALLY, are not at risk of detentions and deportations.

    Zeid has still not got his head around the basic truth…

    .

    …and although it was reported a few months ago that his scandalous politicisation of his job has made his position untenable –UN human rights chief quits after Trump Jerusalem decision – …

    ….in fact that story was misleading, because he has NOT quit, nor has he been fired!

    He is quite wrongly being permitted to continue until his term expires in AUGUST!

    WHY?

    Donald Trump recently cut funding to one group of UN flunkeys  – Trump Administration Is Pulling US Out of UNESCO  – in an effort to teach them a lesson in responsibility.

    Trump should demand his immediate removal! Moreover, he should take a close look at turning off the USA tap in respect of this disrespectful drip’s department too.

    And not just The Donald!

    The arrogant Arab also takes swipes at the elected leaders of Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary and, before they’ve even taken their seats in Italy’s parliament, some of the winners of last weekend’s election there…Italy – With Salvini Ahead, Could Be Good!  – 

    …so why don’t those countries start saving their tax-payers’ money by cutting off all payments that subsidise enemy propaganda like Zeid’s!

    Stop The Courts Imposing Trannies On The Military! 


    Another good move by AFA, starting a petition on the freak-show issue, specifically urging the Trump Administration to fight back against yet one more arrogant seizure of power by leftists in judicial robes.

    =

    • I urge you to read what the AFA has to say and, if you are American, to sign their petition.

    Protest!

    ========

    President Donald Trump, as commander-in-chief of the U.S. armed forces, issued orders last year to strengthen the readiness of the U.S. military. President Trump’s order instructed the Departments of Defense (DOD) and Homeland Security (DHS) to strengthen America’s military readiness by ending an Obama-era, transgender policy.

    This policy allowed those who identify as transgender to serve in the military, and provided taxpayer funded sex reassignment surgery and hormone therapy for members of the military.

    This policy has negatively impacted military readiness, and taxpayer funds necessary to implement this social experiment could be better spent equipping the military. Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness, said Obama’s transgender policy would “detract from readiness, deployability and morale.”

    The president’s orders have been derailed by liberal judges, but Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who is head of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the President’s chief legal official, has yet to seek a stay from the Supreme Court to halt lower court decisions against the transgender ban.

    Sign the petition urging:

    1. President Trump and AG Sessions to seek from the Supreme Court a stay of the lower court rulings on the president’s transgender ban, or if the Court fails to issue a stay, then urge
    2. President Trump to issue a new directive to the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security banning transgender individuals serving in the military.

    What we are now facing is a constitutional crisis where a judge can determine who can be a member of the U.S. armed forces.

    If these rogue judges remain unchecked by the Executive Branch and the U.S. Supreme Court, then they can practically determine any military rule from the bench.

    For example, could lead to a federal judge issuing an injunction to stop troops from going to war to protect American citizens? 

    America’s three branches of government have checks and balances, and the scales of justice have been tipped by these judges.

    The Department of Justice (DOJ) has the constitutional authority to intervene on such matters on behalf of President Trump and to call on the Supreme Court to issue a “stay” or to halt the lower court’s decision. Yet, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the DOJ have not done so.

    I urge you to sign the petition to President Trump and AG Sessions. We will be delivering this petition to the White House. Make sure your name is on the list.

    Now is not the time to remain silent. As Edmund Burke has said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

    Another Petition For American Patriots! 


    No matter what else may be achieved during the Presidency of Donald Trump, the most long-lasting could be the restoration of rational, constitutional balance in the judiciary.

    We have seen deliberate, politically-motivated obstruction of common-sense measures by far-left/liberal clowns on the courts.

    =

    =

    Trump did well to get Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch approved, but further down the food-chain, the Media-Democrat Party is thwarting progress.

    Hence this appeal from AFA, which I am pleased to send you.

    President Trump was elected to carry out the agenda of Americans. Appointing constitutionally conservative judges is a significant part of this agenda, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is allowing Democrats to obstruct the judicial nomination process.

    Tell Sen. McConnell to “get to work” or “”step down.”

    Did you know President Donald Trump has made 57 judicial nominations, but so far only 7 judges have been confirmed by the Senate? This leaves 50 of President Trump’s judicial nominees waiting to be cleared by either the Senate Judiciary Committee or to be voted on by the full Senate.

    So far only 10 of the 50 pending nominees are up for a full Senate vote, but Senate Democrats are demanding there be 30 hours of debate on each nominee.

    Sen. McConnell said, “If this (30-hour debate) continues, it will take us more than 11 years to confirm the remaining presidential appointments….The level of obstruction exhibited by Senate Democrats on these nominees is simply breathtaking….And our colleagues (Democrats) need to stop this immediately – for the sake of our country.”

    Sen. Majority Leader McConnell blames Senate Democrats for the problem but refuses to employ the solution which is to waive the 30-hour debate rule. Sen. McConnell could lower the set amount of time to debate each nominee, but he remains entrenched in allowing Senate Democrats to thwart the nomination of President Trump’s judges.

    Tell Sen. McConnell to “get to work” or “step down.”

    Conservatives should demand the Senate Republican majority to waive the 30-hour debate rule and end the filibuster.

    Waive the 30-hour debate rule
    Sen. McConnell needs to consider Sen. Ron Johnson’s (R-WI) solution to the Democratic obstruction. Sen. Johnson has proposed to use the precedent established by Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) in 2013 to end the 30-hour debate rule by a simple majority vote.

    As reported in The Hill, Sen. Johnson said: “Change the rules of the Senate to limit debate on sub-Cabinet and lower-court nominees to two hours on the Senate floor. Use Senate committees to vet nominees and report on them to the full Senate, where leadership can assign appropriate members to make the case for or against a nominee in the allotted two hours. Then vote.”

    The Republican Senate majority have within their reach the legitimate use of power to put an end to this Democratic obstruction. Yet these Republicans have refused to lift a finger to end this madness.

    End Democratic Filibuster
    The U.S. Senate has a 52 Republican majority that could get a conservative agenda through the Senate if they ended the Democratic filibuster, but 29 of these Republican senators, along with 32 Democrats, have declared their support for Sen. McConnell to keep the filibuster.

    Democrats are killing conservative legislation using the filibuster, and ending the filibuster requires 60 votes. Unless Sen. McConnell leads the Senate Republican majority to waive the filibuster rule and change to majority vote, then it’s impossible to end the Democratic obstruction. There’s little chance Democrats will advance a conservative agenda.

    Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) was correct when he said Democrats have “changed the game” when they did away with the filibuster to confirm President Obama’s federal judges. Sen. Shelby also correctly noted that the filibuster is “not the law. It’s not the statute. It’s not the Constitution.” Also, Republicans changed Senate precedent to approve Judge Neil Gorsuch for the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Other Senators opposing Sen. McConnell on the filibuster are: Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL), Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT), and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). There are also 19 other Republican Senators who have refused to go on record to keep the filibuster. On the House side, U.S. Representative Trent Franks (R-AZ) recently said, “It is time for America to abolish the 60-vote Senate rule” to end the filibuster and vote by simple majority.

    Unless Sen. McConnell and other Republicans wave Senate rules to establish a new precedent to end the Democratic obstruction and confirm President Trump’s judicial nominees, defund sanctuary cities, defund Planned Parenthood, and pass Kate’s Law, etc., then the net effect will be a continuation of the Obama Administration under a Republican majority in the House and Senate.

    Tell your senators to “get to work” or call on Sen. McConnell to “step down.”
