Ukraine Expert vs Ukraine Treaty

Posted by Jeff Id on October 29, 2019

So today, from the ever left New York Times, we have a new breathless report on the big orange man.

Army Officer Who Heard Trump’s Ukraine Call Reported Concerns

An army officer, identified in the article as Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, is the latest impeachment witness willing to talk to the Democrats.  Mr. Vindman is touted as “the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council” and says he twice reported concerns about the President.

The times reports the Lt. Col. as saying:

“I did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a U.S. citizen, and I was worried about the implications for the U.S. government’s support of Ukraine,” Colonel Vindman said in his statement. “I realized that if Ukraine pursued an investigation into the Bidens and Burisma it would likely be interpreted as a partisan play which would undoubtedly result in Ukraine losing the bipartisan support it has thus far maintained.”

Now if Mr. Vindman didn’t say that, it wouldn’t surprise as this is the New York Times but if he did say that and he is an expert, why doesn’t he know about the 1999 treaty with Ukraine titled:


A summary of the very first article of the treaty is included with the full treaty in this link and is copied below:

Article 1 sets forth a non-exclusive list of the major types of as-
sistance to be provided under the Treaty, including taking the tes-
timony or statements of persons; providing documents, records and
other items of evidence; locating or identifying persons or items;
serving documents; transferring persons in custody for testimony or
other purposes; executing requests for searches and seizures; as-
sisting in proceedings related to immobilization and forfeiture of
assets, restitution, and collection of fines; and, rendering any other
form of assistance not prohibited by the laws of the Requested
State. The scope of the Treaty includes not only criminal offenses,
but also proceedings related to criminal matters, which may be
civil or administrative in nature

So it’s not appropriate to investigate the Biden’s because they are American but we have a treaty signed by Al Gore for that explicit purpose.  I don’t think that’s a terribly accurate statement by Lieutenant Colonel Vindman now is it.  But wait, there’s more!!

Article 2 provides for the establishment of Central Authorities
and defines Central Authorities for purposes of the Treaty. For the
United States, the Central Authority shall be the Attorney General
or a person designated by the Attorney General. For Ukraine, the
Central Authority shall be the Ministry of Justice and the Office
of the Prosecutor General. The article provides that the Central
Authorities shall communicate directly with one another for the
purposes of the Treaty.


So the correct person to make contact with Ukraine for purposes of the investigation is Attorney General Barr – Didn’t Trump say something exactly like that?  Huh?

It keeps getting better though.

In addition, a request may be denied if its execution
would prejudice the security or similar essential interests of the
Requested State, or if it is not made in conformity with the Treaty

So per Mr. Vindman’s apparently world renown expert status, he should know that Ukraine has the option of refusing to help if they were concerned that ‘bipartisan’ support could be lost and would affect their national security.   He is way outside of his purview to be the one who is concerned about bipartisan support, that is Ukraines job and right per the treaty.



So if the treaty with Ukraine is NOT for investigation of Americans, why would it state:

“Assistance shall be provided without regard to whether the conduct that is the subject of the investigation, prosecution, or proceeding in the Requesting State would constitute…..”

The only folks subject to laws in the ‘Requesting State’ are citizens of that state or visitors actually in that state.   It seems impossible that the ‘expert’ on Ukraine could have the opinion that the treaty with Ukraine is inappropriate, and it seems very likely that this is just another leftist coup member.   I hope he goes down with the rest when this all blows up in their faces.




BTW, this is an entirely separate issue from the Obama administration using FAKE Russian documents payed for by the Clinton campaign to get a FISA court warrant to spy on Trump.  Which they did, and they committed a literal shit-ton of felonies on the way.  Trump’s actions, even if he used the leverage of assistance (which there is zero evidence of thus far) are perfectly within the law.   He’s allowed to use foreign aid to force investigations into almost anything he likes, especially when the person being investigated, admitted to the crimes on tape.  Being a political opponent does not grant immunity as Trump has been well taught by the Democrats.  Don’t forget, they were talking impeachment well before Trump even took office.

Invalid Opinion

Posted by Jeff Id on October 29, 2019

I’m actually offended by this WaPo propaganda:

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48.

I’m not sure that as a very very white male, I’m allowed to be offended but WOW, I actually am.  This freak burned people in cages, beheaded people, turned women into sex slaves and in his final act of love, blew up his own children.

It’s just more nonsense from the leftist authoritarians but this is way beyond acceptable.   The paper owes everyone on planet Earth an apology.  — Oh and people need to be fired for this.

Stranger than Fiction

Posted by Jeff Id on October 27, 2019

This whole impeachment saga reads like an article from the Onion or maybe a Ron Hubbard sci-fi book.

5: The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.

It is clear that according to the constitution, only the full house has the power to impeach.  It does not define power to form an inquiry under even the most unreasonable terms.  They literally don’t need to have any vote, don’t need any authority other than the constitution and absolutely don’t need any evidence to start an impeachment inquiry in private at any time, about any thing.   However, only the entire house can impeach.   It is really easy to see the strategy of inquire, leak any negative information to the press possible, and hope the public will fall for it.

That doesn’t make the actions of the house morally right though now does it.

Will this be the new America?

The Obama administration has been found to have spied on Trump (an opposition candidate) in a manner which would make Nixon blush.   Hillary Clinton paid a Russian operative to produce a fake dossier which was really never used in the campaign.   It did get leaked to the press and became the foundation to a FISA warrant which gave full permission to the Obama FBI, to investigate Trump….. Before he was elected.  Certainly that would rise to an felony offense if Obama, Biden, Clinton  knew of it.  It is literally impossible to imagine they didn’t and we shouldn’t forget the Strozk text – “POTUS wants to know everything we’re doing”

Two years of farcical investigation and Muller claims under oath that he doesn’t even know who Fusion GPS was.   (They paid the money, to Steele for the fake dossier — on behalf of Clinton!!).  Actual Russian collusion!! But our glorious FBI, who can prosecute the hell out of a kid for a photo of an outdated sub, couldn’t figure this one out.

Clinton destroyed subpoenaed evidence — with a hammer.  Try that kids and you will spend a LOT of time in jail.   ACTUAL obstruction of justice instead of the fake kind the Democrats are accusing everyone else of.  So many blatant and publicly known violations of confidential data rules by her.  No prosecution, the FBI even helped out despite not being allowed to see the hacked server.

Comey leaked classified information, and actively worked against the president – no prosecution.  He’s still regularly laughing on TV about how he’s getting away with all of it.  He may be right.

Biden admitted on tape to using US funds to fire a prosecutor in Ukraine – who NOT coincidentally, happened to be investigating some insanely suspicious multi-million dollar deals his son was involved in. (15 U.S.C. § 78dd-1) .Biden, by his own words, used government money as leverage to block investigation into Burisma holdings.  Burisma was just ONE of his shockingly unqualified son’s multi-million dollar international arrangements – made while riding Air Force 2.  Video here.

President of the United States Trump asked the newly elected president of Ukraine (who was elected on an anti-corruption platform) – ‘was that real?’  and we now have another multi-year round of ‘Impeach the orange man’. Trump is accused of withholding government money because he asked about looking into the Bidens……   No money was stated withheld by Trump as a condition, no evidence exists that he actually did hold it,   and even if he did withhold money for an investigation into corruption, it is his actual OBLIGATION to do so.  But again, no evidence and it is Blindingly (big B) obvious that Biden is very likely guilty of extortion.

Like before, this fake trial is behind closed doors.   The information from the ‘investigation’ is  confidential so naturally the only data leaked from the endless forced questioning is anti-trump.

I really don’t understand how this has any legs at all.

We have a specific treaty with Ukraine regarding the sharing of evidence of corruption and criminal activities.  The treaty is targeted quite specifically at crimes like those that Joe and Hunter Biden very much appear to have committed.    The treaty was signed in 1999 by Al Gore, a favorite of every climate blog.  Here is a link to the full text of the treaty with a summary at the beginning.

When I first heard the story, my thought was what do people imagine foreign aid in return for?  Good feelings?  More socialist saving of less capitalist ‘developing’ societies?  Lifting most of these countries out of poverty by cash payments is equivalent to sending mentally impaired folk to medical school.   It doesn’t make sense — so my point is, that is obviously not what the money is for!

Don’t really know what other folk think, but I hold no illusions that the money transfers from any government to another has no purpose.  Why would you pay if you get nothing in return?  Generosity comes from the individual, not the government.

It makes me wonder.

In the meantime, I would humbly suggest that nobody listen to the leftist media – well ever actually.  Some think they are getting both sides of a story, but when one side is actively lying, well…… let’s just say that all opinions are not created equally.  The goal is obviously to turn public sentiment against Trump such that when the time comes, congressional con-men may be supported in their already decided vote.

I’ve written to my fence-sitting congressman who can’t seem to decide if fake impeachment is something he should support or not.  You should all write to yours this time, something I rarely recommend.  Not that they will listen but this time it is very important that we stop the decay of our government into ever deeper corruption.  When nonsense is mainstream, we have a big problem.

Vote Fraud – again.

Posted by Jeff Id on July 28, 2019

Reader 4kx3 left a link to Judicial Watch on voter fraud.   The discussion is interesting in several aspects and interested readers should consider reading the link.

One aspect which is also interesting is a specific case of an immigrant dumb enough to self identify as a non-citizen and got caught voting in Illinois in a federal election.

Without any serious effort on our part, we are now up to 462 cases from across the country, 742 criminal convictions. And that doesn’t include the most recent cases we’re going to
put in. Just three days ago, three days ago, I was sitting at my desk, and I saw that the Seventh Circuit, the United States Court of Appeals, so this is a court that’s just one step below the U.S.
Supreme Court, released a five page opinion about a woman, a Peruvian citizen, who was in the United States, and when she went to get her drivers’ license in Illinois, she decided to register to
vote and voted in the next federal election.
Now, what’s interesting about this is that she actually lied on her voter registration form. She checked the box saying, yes, I’m a United States citizen. She could have continued to vote
as often she wanted to in Illinois. She would never have been caught because Illinois does absolutely nothing to verify the citizenship of people.The only reason she was caught was
because she actually applied for citizenship. And it was during the citizenship application that it was discovered that she had registered and voted in election. This is on the same day, by theway, that another report came out of Texas, similar incident. A woman down there, not a U.S.citizen, who voted illegally in the 2012 or 2014 election.
These are stolen votes from actual US citizens.  These are votes which are widely understood to be typically leftist in nature and are in significant enough numbers to swing elections.
Jesse Richman – Political Science & Geography Professor at Old Dominion University studied the voting patterns of non-citizens.   Seriously, which other country would have such a thing?!!
He wrote:
In 2012, I looked at support for Obama. And among all non-citizens, about 80 percent supported Obama. Among non-citizens who cast validated votes, it was about 90 percent who said that they supported Obama. So there are a few who are supporting other candidates or didn’t express a preference, but, overwhelmingly, it’s support for Democrats, President Obama.
Overall, it is a good article.   It doesn’t take a math wizard to figure out that the numbers of illegal votes and voters are handing additional power to the left.   If the leftists had any understanding of or belief in the constitution, this wouldn’t be such a bad situation but every day we see congress and courts ignoring the constitution and instead choosing highly destructive paths towards socialism and corruption.   Our federal departments FBI,CIA,IRS,EPA, universities, public schools, courts and compliant media are now working together in concert for the destruction of our future – to be replaced with authoritarian style governance.  Each group of believers fighting for their own cause, environment, climate change, equal pay, energy production, free schooling on and on and on.  All to the same direction – to the destruction of America.
I very much fear for our children.

I’m a Racist – oh my!

Posted by Jeff Id on July 21, 2019

Update:Now I’m dumb apparently. I have to say that one really hurts my feelings coming from someone as elite as Brandon.  Read at your own risk.

If You’re Not a Xenophobe, Why Are You So Dumb?

Apparently open death wishes are not sufficient punishment for my future person, now I’ve truly hit the big leagues. Racist!!!

Brandon Shollenburger has a new angry post up where he says some words that are not very entertaining or accurate.  It is a bit fun though, apparently I’m a racist,bigoted, xenophobe or some other blatant libel.  It’s like they need a new list similar to ‘LGBTQAI+’ maybe we could start with RBX and leave space at the end for whatever new words come into vogue…….  It would really shorten the articles on some blogs.

Brandon wrote a lot of pseudo-emotional words including the below (my formatting):

First, my words as quoted by Brandon [he removed my links]:

Liberal news papers love to make the claim that there is NO evidence of illegal aliens voting in large numbers — these claims are false.

[links were here]

You know when mainstream media speaks on political issues, there is a near certainty that you are being misled. Of the 15.8 million registered voters in Texas, how many of those weren’t dumb enough to self identify as illegal aliens!! These are literally the people who admitted to it in a government office!

What we have in Texas is evidence of MASSIVE fraud. Even if the number is only double what the idiotic self reporting illegals have listed, we have an enormous voter fraud issue.

Brandon then wrote:

I don’t know how anyone could believe something this ridiculous. To be frank, I think some form of racism/xenophobia is the only answer because there is no rational way to reach these conclusions. How can one believe tens of thousands of people were “dumb enough to self identify as illegal aliens!!”? It seems to me the amount of contempt for the people in question can only arise from some form of bigotry.

Even if one thinks that level of contempt could somehow be justified, these beliefs contradict every piece of evidence available.

Lots of other words follow in his post but there is something to be said for brevity.


My ‘beliefs’ contradict every piece of evidence, not that they seem to differ, or that they conflict at times with, but completely contradict EVERY piece of evidence.

‘every piece of evidence available’  — huh.

Later on Brandon writes:

Claims of voter fraud in Texas were horribly flawed.Within a week of them being made, it was already known, and confirmed, tens of thousands of names from the list of 95,000 shouldn’t have been listed

Not just flawed but HORRIBLY FLAWED.  In fact, FLAWED to the point of extreme emoting in the universal ether, aneurysms, sweaty palms, dogs and cats living together OR perhaps his excited statement might be a just a wee bit overblown.

I need to point out that there has been NO refutation of the original article in the Washington Post, nor has there been any indication that reports of large numbers of illegal votes in this exact case were inaccurate.  At no time, did I or anyone else claim every vote on the list was illegal as Brandon’s words falsely imply and with the obfuscation of data by leftist politicians, it would be impossible to expect a perfect result.   In fact, the situation now is actually worse than I had ever imagined it would be.  As of today, they were only able to identify 25,000 of these 95,000 registered voters as legal voters during the lawsuits that followed this initial report. From Brandon’s own link – which he apparently failed to read or maybe in his adjective-laden waves of emotion he didn’t want you to know the truth (my bold below):

In court, state officials said about a quarter — 25,000 — of the people on the original list for investigation were placed there in error and had already proved their citizenship.

That is worse than I had imagined.  This means that instead of 58,000 potentially invalid votes, it could be much higher.  But even if it is not more than 58,000 illegal voters, the whole event proved it is not zero.   Non zero illegal voting was the evidence found, and so we are left with tens of thousands of unvetted votes that still appear to be illegal. Tens of thousands of what at this point we could reasonably assume are ‘likely illegal’ votes remain untested, and due to lawsuits by democrats, the investigation of these voters has been effectively blocked. All investigation halted by Democrats apparently equals zero evidence to Brandon.

—–Why would democrats invest so much money to stop another voter investigation?  Hmm….

—–Why didn’t they want the data to be investigated thoroughly?  Hmm.. Hmm….

—–Shouldn’t a card carrying skeptic ask such questions?  Hmm… Hmm.. Hmm…

hahaha.  Good stuff.

But even worse for me, in Brandon’s world, I’m now a racist.  [Queue music] Dum, dum, dum!!!!

It is critical to note that the original article in the Washington Post which I linked said (my bold):

But without additional verification, one cannot say these individuals all engaged in illegal voting, said Chris Davis, the head of the Texas Association of Elections Administrators.

It only takes a moderately curious intellect to see that Chris Davis isn’t discounting the evidence, but is rather indicating that the numbers as presented didn’t represent a full and accurate count of the true illegal votes.  The statement read carefully also is clearly indicating that at that time there appeared to be a large number of illegal votes cast.   Nothing presented by me contradicts this.   In fact, from the evidence Brandon presents, it appears the problem is even more significant than originally reported because we have greater certainty that the remaining folks are illegally registered to vote — the opposite of Brandon’s false and emotion laden claims. When false statements are made with understanding, we call this lying.   I would rather assume it’s just another confused socialist emoting in Brandon’s case.  He clearly feels bigotry and we cannot should not rationally argue with a feeling.

I am tired of having my vote stolen by leftist fascist authoritarians who neither believe in the US Constitution nor understand it.  We have tied the hands of Immigration and Customs Enforcement such that we are now importing people from other countries putting them on buses, and rather than taking them back across the line, we put them far from the border and release them with money, clothes, medicine and welfare and without legal consequence.  In addition, the authoritarian socialists actively work to insure that government doesn’t know who is a citizen and who is not at the time of voting.  Leftists in city governments are so extreme that they are openly helping the illegals while illegally and dangerously subverting our own law enforcement organizations.  Simultaneously, even the main-stream left argues that it is literally racist to show any form of identification when voting.  Caravans, obfuscation of data, non-prosecution of illegals, yet observing these things is “against every piece of evidence available” – oh and it’s racist and bigoted blah, blah ,blah..

It is well known that states actively hide the critical evidence which would fully expose the magnitude of illegal voting.  Voter privacy is used as the excuse, yet the data required would not identify the voters.   In each and every attempt to investigate vote fraud, voter suppression are the first words mentioned, followed closely by racist, bigot and xenophobe  (Seriously RBX… really makes some sense for these folks). We need a campaign to “conserve electrons!!” or something.

Is the illegal voting sufficient to swing elections?  Sure it is, you only need a thousand votes in some elections to swing the ballot and there are tens of millions of illegal people in the United States.   In addition, the census as it will be done in 2020 without identifying citizenship, is literally designed to give equal representation in congress to illegal immigrants.  A real Constitutional question lies in there – for those who read the Constitution.  In total, the situation as it stands means that citizen influence is being diluted by a bunch of very often uneducated people imported from socialist dictatorial countries. Numerically, the Democrat strategy is incredibly obvious. The left has insured that are no real consequences to people for voting illegally simply because the required information is hidden from law enforcement while that same law enforcement is being actively subverted.  Why wouldn’t non-citizens vote if there is no consequence?   But ‘no evidence’ has been the mantra for decades as Brandon continues to represent.  The leftist voter information wall will obviously fall at some point (this was a big crack!!), perhaps a big data leak or maybe the legal system will accidentally function, and when it does, those on the side of massive authoritarian unconstitutional government hope it will already be too late.  Brandon will be wrong again, but he clearly doesn’t mind being wrong when the ends justify the means.

It is apparent to me that in Brandon’s world, we should continue to ignore actual evidence of voter fraud.  Ignore the blatant government obfuscation of the data.  We should call out people who critique the situation as racists and bigots.  We should ignore the systematic manner in which the leftists are actively and openly suppressing citizen votes while ironically accusing rational people of the same thing.  We should assume that voter ID is racist, and that those nice imported people aren’t something we can discuss – because it’s racist!!

Brandon humorously ignores the evidence in this case to the point where he flat out claims the evidence doesn’t even exist.  He made me laugh this time for sure .

Just to tweak him and further accelerate Brandon’s aging process – In this legal climate as described above, just the magnitude of the numbers of illegal residents alone proves with great certainty almost any claim of massive illegal alien voter fraud and I (and many others) have little doubt that Trump’s millions of illegal votes was accurate.

On a far, far, far more important note, perhaps even horribly far, shouldn’t ‘busing’ have two ‘S’s?  It doesn’t seem right.   Must be some kind of left wing authoritarian plot to make me bad at spelling.   Probably spying on me right now!!  Where’s my bible??!!!

Record Income Tax Collection Even After Inflation

Posted by Jeff Id on February 14, 2019

As I reported before, the US collected record income tax revenues after the tax cut.  This is due to higher real wages as well as more people working.  So lower tax = higher receipts for the federal government.  This is a strong indication of what I’ve written here for a decade now, we are on the back side of the Laffer curve and the government was taking so much it was creating a bad economy.  I reported this in my previous post – refuted indirectly by the NYT despite showing no data.  I’ve found several sources since then which agreed with me.

Today I found one that was apparently inflation corrected and still MORE INCOME TAX REVENUE!!

The bad news is that the government spent it all and more!!! — A LOT MORE.

Link to this source is here.

YES – Illegal Voting is Rampant and is a Form of Intentional Voter Fraud by Democrats

Posted by Jeff Id on January 27, 2019

Texas has 15.8 million registered voters of which 58,000 had at one point provided identification that showed they were not citizens.    This equates to 0.36% of the voting population which self identified as a non-citizen at some point and still voted.  During the process, they discovered that 95,000 of the same group had actually registered to vote or 0.6% of Texas registered voters are actually self identified as illegal aliens.

Liberal news papers love to make the claim that there is NO evidence of illegal aliens voting in large numbers — these claims are false.







You know when mainstream media speaks on political issues, there is a near certainty that you are being misled.  Of the 15.8 million registered voters in Texas, how many of those weren’t dumb enough to self identify as illegal aliens!!  These are literally the people who admitted to it in a government office!

These fake media outlets loved jumping on Trumps now-disbanded voter fraud commission as one member used the words – lack of evidence. This lack of evidence was stated by Matthew Dunlap secretary of state of Maine in no uncertain terms.  He is of course a Democrat.  His claims were denied by other commission members. In addition, Dunlap decided the voting data for his state was not something he could share even in redacted version.  Some reports indicate that 44 states refused to comply with data requests of the commission so of course if a data analyst can’t access the data it is simple to conclude that there is no evidence of voter fraud.  Of the data the commission collected they did discover 8400 cases of double voting however.  In fact, Dunlap got cut out of some of the communication in the commission as a result of bad blood between himself and the other commissioners and he filed a lawsuit demanding all communications between commission members be given to him as well as any draft reports .  This led in large part to the disbanding of the commission.  None of that deterred Dunlap to proclaim (with no data) that there was no evidence of voter fraud discovered.

What we have in Texas is evidence of MASSIVE fraud.  Even if the number is only double what the idiotic self reporting illegals have listed, we have an enormous voter fraud issue.

Look at this map of voters by county.


Snap 2019-01-27 at 08.27.01.png

Just the spatial correlation with Mexico is enough to see how immigration has effected the democrat vote, now we know that a significant amount of that immigration is illegal and right along the border.

A map of the border wall is fairly interesting as well.   Compare the difference where a wall exists with spaces that don’t have walls.

snap 2019-01-27 at 08.32.55

The tip of Texas is completely unprotected and strongly blue.  Coincidence?  I don’t believe it.

Anyway, legal immigration is perfectly fine and we can discuss all day how much of that we should accept, however I’m tired of my vote being stolen by illegal immigration and blatantly obvious illegal voting.    All claims of no evidence are now flatly false as most people already knew.  Of course if you don’t check citizenship, you won’t know about it and it is high time that Democrats are called out for their obfuscation of this issue.

The theft of my vote is not acceptable.

A lot of good folks died to give me the right to vote I’m told.  The caviler attitude by the left with giving my vote to folks who have no right is beyond disturbing.  It is in fact a line where violence begins to make sense.  70% of these illegal immigrants end up on welfare, stealing my money.  They vote in vast majority for Democrats who promise them free everything – again stolen from those of us who have earned what we have.

Worse, fake activist Democrat judge Judge Jesse M. Furman the Democrats have now blocked the Citizenship question from the 2020 census despite it being regularly included up to the year 2000.   It is insane not to include it but again hiding the problem is another method of DEMOCRAT VOTE FRAUD as it creates representatives for the illegal immigrants in the states they are in – again primarily Democrat states.  Again, this is absolutely illegal activity which results in the direct theft of my legal representation.

So we are allowing masses of poor people to rush across the southern border, receive immediate, long term and free access to government welfare services and those of us who actually contribute and actually understand the constitution of the United States are forced to give our personal belongings and income in exchange for losing our own representation by our own government.

So I’ve heard the argument that more people overstay their visas than cross the southern border.  I will counter that statement with the fact that our government has vetted those people for a history of crime making them much less likely to be in gangs or drugs.  They also are far less likely to be horribly impoverished and they have registered themselves properly making voting for them more difficult.  Most end up leaving in the end anyway but compared to a gang member shipping prostitutes and drugs across our southern border, or economic immigrants looking for free money, they are an entirely different class of people.

It’s quite easy to see why Democrats support such obvious nonsense.  They want the votes.  Without the illegal immigrants, they are much less likely to control the government as a much higher percentage of mainstream Americans have generally figured out what Democrats are doing to destroy our country and constitution.  It doesn’t stop too many of them from supporting illegal voting with a recent poll showing that 31% of US voters think illegals voting is a good idea.   Can you guess which party they come from?  It is a shockingly high number people who should be completely embarrassed of their own stupidity, but there you have it.

I’m truly tired of having my vote stolen by these evil manipulative politicians.  They lie to us almost as much as the Media.  Now that Texas has released its data, we know for sure that illegal voting is absolutely wide spread – not that I’m surprised.

When you don’t check for citizenship, of course you get non-citizen votes.    In California for instance as far back as 1996, Loretta Sanchez won an election due entirely to illegal voting.

1996 Election – California

One of the most extensively documented cases of illegal voting was in California in 1996. Loretta Sanchez, a Democrat, defeated Republican incumbent Robert Dornan by 984 votes. Dornan called for an investigation of alleged illegal voting by noncitizens. According to Congressional Quarterly, a Washington, DC newspaper that focuses on developments in Congress, “Task force Chairman [U.S. Representative] Vernon J. Ehlers, R-Mich., said investigators had found concrete evidence of 748 illegal votes by noncitizens, not enough to throw Sanchez”s victory into doubt.”

I say she won due to it, if you found 784 votes who were certainly illegal, you know damned well there were more.  You also don’t need proof to know which way they primarily voted.  My guess is that when they hit 784, they quit before the election results were changed. Can you guess how many were deported or sent to prison?

Recently 23,000 Californian vote registrations were ‘accidentally’ botched by employees. It was caught by a Canadian who reported the problem on his own license.   If they know of 23,000, there are absolutely more.

In additon, in Cali, not only do you NOT have to provide an ID to vote, you can do it remotely without providing ANY identification whatsoever.  This link is very informative on the matter.

If you don’t check for illegal voting, of course you won’t find it.  If we ever see the actual data from these states, it will be a simple matter to prove it out.

Ignorance Gone Wild

Posted by Jeff Id on January 6, 2019

We are told again and again that cutting taxes increases the deficit.  It’s so bad that people have invented stupid programs like the penny plan (which Hannity really promotes) and paygo which used to be Republican and now is being pushed by the Democrats.  I’ve long maintained that these are terrible ideas – because we are on the down slope of the Laffer curve. Taxation is so high, that less taxation results in more economy and more revenue for the government.  Smart liberals know this but they are authoritarians by nature and realize that more tax is inversely proportional to freedom (less freedom) and proportional to dependence on the federal government for services.  So Paygo by its nature completely ignores this situation as do the rules of the ‘non partisan’ CBO.

From Bloomberg.

In total, CBO projects that the cumulative increase in the deficit through 2028 due to the tax cuts will be approximately $1.9 trillion.

Paul Krugman – Literally the fakest economist I’ve read who also happens to be a prime government authoritarian darling wrote this

Later that day the joint committee delivered its predictable verdict: Like all other reasonable studies, its review found that the Senate bill would do little for U.S. economic growth, while directly hurting tens of millions of middle-class Americans, blowing up the deficit, lavishing benefits on the wealthy and opening up new frontiers for tax avoidance

and this:

Just about every G.O.P. member of Congress, including the sainted John McCain, is willing to put partisan loyalty above principle, voting for what they have to know is terrible and irresponsible legislation.

and this:

It was remarkable, for example, to see a group of Republican-leaning economists with serious professional credentials put out an open letter clearly intended to lend aid and comfort to Mnuchinesque promises of miraculous growth.

Pelosi said this:

simply theft—monumental, brazen theft—from the American middle-class and from every person who aspires to reach it.

The genius Schumer said –

cynical one-two gut punch to the middle class—raise their taxes to pay for corporate tax cuts & then decimate their earned benefits as a kicker.

Of course they were just lying like they so often do.  Lying is a word used inaccurately far to often in the political spectrum, when I use it I mean telling a non-truth that is known at the time to be a non-truth.   They knew damned good and well that the tax changes were significant cuts. And even though America figured out that the cuts worked, these central government authoritarians have repeatedly stated that they still want to undo the cuts as soon as they get power.

So we went against Krugmans authoritarian government-knows-best vision and lowered taxes in 2018 – and  the economy boomed and federal government got more revenue including significantly more from income taxes.


Increased revenue from INCOME TAX due to a cut in income tax rate!!

Increased overall revenue

Highest wage growth in years.

Lowest unemployment in numerous categories

Massive economic growth

Huge holiday spending

Big job creation

Manufacturing growth – this is very critical to a successful country!

#1 energy producer in the world

Looks like business owners actually know economics.  Huh…..who would a thunk it.

I’ve generally been forced to move on from blogging.   It is a lot of work running a now-large company and we used the cuts to invest massively in new injection molding equipment right here in the US, which we can now write off and will add numerous highly skilled people for decades to come.  I’ve written before that our effective tax rate was over 80% because nothing is considered an expense.  It isn’t that much better now but it was enough to allow the investment into American business and treat a massive expense as an actual expense – which it is!  State taxes and inventory are still not considered expenses despite the massive check writing but equipment at least is.   In addition to the advantages from tax cuts, we are forced into paying people more and having to compete harder to keep good workers.  The effect is non-trivial and has showed up in jobs growth numbers, wage numbers and even spending numbers. Investment is high, growth is high, imagine where we will be if this were to continue on Trump’s very positive path for another 6 years.  He gets 100% of the credit for this at this point. So much resistance from the authoritarian swamp including his own party.   It’s huge folks, it’s real, and if you are finding yourself in disagreement, you need to do some serious reading or perhaps not vote, because you are flat effing wrong! 

Like climate change, the evidence is directly in front of you, it is up to you to be smart enough to read it.

Unfortunately, the pro-government authoritarian left has taken over education at all levels and are pushing socialism in its most evil forms.  The federalist papers and the constitution have nothing to do with socialism.  In fact, there is no room in the American constitution for socialism under any interpretation and the judicial branch should strike much of it down as unconstitutional.  The result however, has been extra-constitutional departments and regulations which have no true foundation in law, approved by socialist activist judges who at best are fake and in far too many cases literally operate above the law with no effective method of censure.  In the US,  one of the three branches of government is more equal than others.

I see no end to it though, in recent news, we watch the authoritarian left promote more anti-constitutional socialism at every turn, and it drives a great fear into my heart to see such stupidity taking over the now completely socialist Democrat party.  Democrats used to at least have the appearance of rational thought, or consideration of the constitution, although many of us could see them clearly through the fog of politics just fine. Now the inability of voters to comprehend what will come of their authoritarian government-first policies is absolutely terrifying.  I’m afraid for my regularly indoctrinated children, because this socialist ignorance is preached to them in school as though it is unquestioned knowledge on a daily basis.  My wife and I can probably save their minds, but other parents are helpless in the face of the onslaught. As a contemporary example, 29 year old Cortez literally doesn’t know anything about economics and she supposedly has a degree in it.  Her life experience in economics is limited to keeping her tips off the books and out of her co-workers hands but as an un-spanked millennial, she will not even listen to counter-arguments on the matter.  She already knows all, and that is the big Democrat socialist visionary who is going to lead the country to 70% federal taxation (of business too) and no fossil fuel.  Given the power to enact these plans, she would close us down overnight and some at least equally ignorant voters gave her a lot of power!!

She’s just a truly dumb person and her equally dumb self-confidence in the face of her ignorance cannot be cured.

According to the demonstrably fake socialist economic models, the way for the federal government to pay for something is HIGHER taxes, but we’ve just seen the opposite, lower taxes gave MORE revenue.  So if paygo were in effect, when we enact a new big unconstitutional program like the Department of Education, we must then fund it with increased taxes. So in our current over-regulated and over-taxed situation, when you raise taxes, you have less money in your personal pocket (less freedom), the government has less money in their pocket from you (bigger deficit), and then you will need more money printed by the government to save the people who fall off the bottom end, which will require more taxes to pay for it!!!  Pure genius orchestrated and voted for by an ignorant population and their authoritarian masters who are very happy with the most ignorant and financially needy constituents possible. I’ve heard rumors that the masters will even import the least educated of them en-masse and hand them free money — can’t be true though right?

We need to return to the constitution of this country in order to save America.  I don’t see it happening any time soon, so while my crystal ball doesn’t work any better than Krugman’s, the kids will likely starve in the socialist truly anti-American future.  In the meantime, lets enjoy the success of a tiny bit of sanity introduced by our orange leader Donald Trump who has turned out to be a much better president than I had ever imagined he would. To his so-scientific detractors, we all need to change our ideas in the face of data, and the data shows he was right (and BTW so was I so many times on this exact blog), tax cuts and regulation reduction did lead to success at every level, and the Krugman ilk’s twisted-socialist and completely fake economic models were wrong.

Muppets Like Me

Posted by Jeff Id on February 18, 2018

So lets have more fun than that.

I’m done with the authoritarians FAKE game of skin color.

never cared who’s skin was what color

never will.

BUT Neither did you…..

BUT that is what the authoritarians want us to discuss.  It isn’t that mexicans have invaded our country en masse, it is that we are racist for noticing that they are fucking Mexicans.

Not my fault.

I love Mexicans by the way.

Unlike our millennials, they are future voters of common sense who know that governments can actually screw you in a manner that you cannot recover from.  BUT on the average, they are blatantly uneducated, ignorant, and unmitigatedly hard working people who are running away from the disaster of a government they actually voted for.

Someday, when they can actually read English, those same Mexicans will vote conservative.   In the meantime there are many millions voting for leftist authoritarians, because our politician leftists sound like the same leftists who ruined their country AND Venezuela.

We don’t have any need to accept them as voters today.  No immediate need. No requirement for cheap labor, no requirement for expensive, on the authoritarian dole, voters.

See how that works?But you are supposed to think lack of amnesty is a big deal for you personally.  Amnesty is above actual tax cuts, above actual health insurance deregulation, above food stamp programs, the military, selling our uranium to aggressors, authoritarian politicians ignoring actual written law, on and on.

You are supposed to think you are racist.

You are told to think that illegals need citizenship.

You are told that spending on preferred government items is needed.

You are a muppet!!

Me too, but — I’m changing.

Easy Call

Posted by Jeff Id on June 17, 2017

America is not allowed to elect a conservative president of any form.  The deep state, fourth branch of government has declared that they now have critical mass to enforce their will upon us independently from our elected officials.  Liberal feeders have infected every branch of government, media and education to the point where even without any evidence, a conservative president will be impeached.  There is zero evidence that Trump has done anything wrong, yet we are surrounded by openly visible liberal crimes that go un-prosecuted.   Comey leaking to get a fake prosecutor, Hillary selling the US for personal gain, Obama fast and furious, Hillary’s dead ambassador to Lybia and the lies to cover it, instead we have fake prosecution recommended by deputy ag Rosenstein for Trump firing Comey, the very act that Rosenstein recommended in a public letter.  Now we have a fake ‘public’ trial by partisan judges where every witness admitted that there is no evidence of wrongdoing.   A trial which hasn’t ended because now the prosecuting liberals have switched from the proven false ‘Russia stole the election’ charges to different FAKE charges of obstruction of justice.  Obstructing the investigation of the proven fake Russia stole the election charge by the way.

How does one obstruct justice regarding the non-investigation of a fake crime?

Only in America methinks.

Trump could order the investigation of something he was guilty of, stopped,  without being guilty of obstruction by the way, because he’s actually the boss.  He’s completely allowed to do that.  Any common sense in America?  No, instead, Muller hired 13 lawyers to prosecute a crime which by definition cannot exist.   Trump is in charge of the FBI.  He can stop any investigation at any time, yet he did NOT.

13 LIBERAL lawyers. Hillary and Democrat donors, Investigating a president without even a potential crime.  YES they will make something up.  We don’t know what but LAWYERS lie for a living.  They twist fact into innuendo as a matter of duty.  They find crime and innocence where none exist, and innuendo is their primary weapon.  Having so many liberals paid to find a problem with the president is a huge issue.

But it got worse today.


“All Americans, regardless of party, agree on the fundamental principle that no one is above the law,” Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) told MSNBC Friday. “And if President Trump were to fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein, and then [get] special counsel Mueller fired, I believe Congress would begin impeachment proceedings.”

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) echoed Lieu’s sentiments, saying that Congress would come together to make sure they overrule Trump’s authority on the matter.

“Congress will not allow the president to so egregiously overstep his authority,” Schiff said in a statement.

America is in trouble when the left, with no evidence can issue a statement to THREATEN the boss of the FBI with impeachment if he doesn’t allow his own employees to prosecute him for something that DID NOT HAPPEN. Obstruction of false politically motivated liberal attacks is the true crime and that is nothing but a job well done.

It seems Trump has little choice.  In his place, I would fire them all right now with the statement that it is in our country’s best interest that these idiots move on.  Muller, Rosenstein, and about 2500 other Obama swampmongers would leave right at this exact moment if I had the ability.   Trump gets the same result either way, prosecution, innuendo and nonsense.  Chuck them to the curb with extreme prejudice and put in someone who will investigate Comey, Clinton, Muller’s fake investigation and Obama.  Because those folk all actually did obstruct “justice”.

Clinton lied to investigators–obstruction.

Clinton destroyed evidence–obstruction.

Clinton bribed and manipulated office holding investigators — obstruction.

A democrat operative who was apparently leaking to Wikileaks was shot.   obstruction.

NO REAL INVESTIGATIONS of any of these things.

Bye Bye Paris

Posted by Jeff Id on June 2, 2017

I am absolutely thrilled to see a tiny bit of sanity in our government.   Every day the left gets loonier with one fake conspiracy after another dying when hit by fact, and every day Trump makes a little more sense from it.  Not sure why pulling out of the Paris agreement was so damned hard a call, like firing the idiot inspector Comey, it was the most obvious decision in the world.  Fake CNN news seems to be the order of the next 4 years, and people can see right through it.

Image result for pink panther

The more time they spend on fake Russia nonsense the better, I just wish real news outlets would ignore it so I wouldn’t hear about it.  When dropping out of a completely bogus climate agreement prompts fake articles about attacks on minorities and children and on and on, it just makes me giggle. People really are idiots.  I wish it would make some difference in the pro-socialist and otherwise fake climate-change industry, but the push to socialism won’t even be slowed down by it.  I wonder what idiots will think in 50 years when we still don’t have a single piece of evidence of any bad effects from man-made climate change.

Some sanity in the midst of the idiot shit-storm only politely referred to as news, was rather nice.

Changing the Subject

Posted by Jeff Id on March 26, 2017

I’m not sure how to reply to PSI.  They’ve written a post which I don’t seem to be allowed to comment on or there is some technical problem.  Read at your own risk, if you find yourself agreeing with it, I recommend you wash your mind with some kind of acidic cleaner to get the nonsense out but people vote oddly so I don’t have any illusion that some won’t fall for it.  The post claims they have somehow been wronged by my argument, as I brought up the quantum nature of thermodynamics during a ridiculous discussion from literally 4 years ago!!   The discussion in question absolutely required quantum thermodynamics, but PSI is not a group widely cited for their knowledge of thermodynamics.  I will again, yes again, explain below.

They present an equation for radiative transfer of energy between two bodies:

Q ~ σ(Th4 – Tc4)

Us engineers have seen it. Radiative heat = “constant” times the fourth power of the temperature difference between two bodies – hot and cold.  Materials emit radiation at the fourth power of their temperature.  While the PSI group can sound reasonable to an untrained person, this equation tells the story of their own failure of understanding.

Most any high-school student can tell you that heat flows from hot to cold.  In large groups of atoms, such as a microscopic organism or larger pieces of flea dander, Thermodynamics becomes a bulk property science which represents billions of atoms interacting.   Good students can figure out that the heat flow between larger globs of atoms, is two directional between hot and cold, (it goes both ways Cali style) but the flow nets toward the cold in the exact amount predicted by the basic thermodynamic equations as shown in the radiative transfer equation above.  See each atom in the glob has its own unique energy state and physically can exist at a different energy level than its neighbor.  PSI members can’t figure that easy bit out, their members repeatedly claim that somehow energy emitted from a cooler body detects the “net” state of the warmer rather than the local state of the atom actually being affected, and somehow is prevented from transfer.  Completely non-physical nonsense.

Conduction or radiation, the effect is the same.  In any body there are atoms at different vibrational energy levels.  Vibration=heat.

Below is an example of heat movement in the wrong direction:

Imagine a tiny sphere of a billion atoms of pure solid hydrogen at absolute zero temperature, born in a universe where no other radiation was impinging upon it.  No vibration in the atoms whatsoever.   One photon of the correct wavelength strikes the sphere and is absorbed!  Does one photon absorbed into a hydrogen sphere cause all atoms in that sphere to rise in temperature, or just one atom?  The answer quantum mechanics gives is one atom.  That energy will then be transmitted in quantum nature to its neighbors dropping the original atom back to absolute zero and heating its neighbor to 1 arbitrary temp unit.  If the sphere of a billion atoms, and the energy didn’t radiate out to the surrounding universe, that same unit of energy would transfer from atom to atom, all around the sphere, with each different hydrogen atom rising in temperature and falling back to zero as it transfers the energy to the next absolute zero temperature neighbor.   Other unaffected atoms wouldn’t recognize any difference in their own temperatures as they are still at absolute zero energy state.

Now imagine having two of those one billion atom spheres, each one having absorbed two photons.  Two hot atoms inside of two billion atom spheres.  When measured with a properly sensitive instrument, both would have a non-zero temperature because the hot atoms would occasionally affect the amazingly good temperature sensor.  Assume sphere 1 emits a single photon by radiation and it impinges on sphere 2.   Now since these are billion atom spheres and only two of the atoms are energized, I’m going to assume that 999,999,998 in a billion which is really close to 1/1, chance of striking a zero temperature atom on sphere 2 came true, and that the photon struck an absolute zero temp atom on sphere 2 and was therefore absorbed into sphere 2.

Now here is the trick…

Before the photon left sphere 1, the equivalent spheres had 2 photonic units of energy and were equal temperature. The instant the photon left sphere 1, sphere 1 only had a single photon of heat instead of two which sphere two has.  It traveled across the between these spheres at that point going from a colder body to a hotter one, struck the hotter one and was absorbed by an atom at absolute zero temperature.  Heat energy moved from hot to cold.   If you say NO Jeff, it went from equal to equal, that’s fine too because the ENERGY moved from sphere 1 to sphere 2 and created heat.

The story gets worse!!!

Although sphere 1 only has a single photon left, and despite the 3:1 odds, not so amazing if you’ve ever rolled dice, it emits its last photon of heat before sphere two does!!!  Evil thing.

Anyway, that photon travels the short distance between the two spheres and also strikes the surface of sphere 2 which holds the quantum heat of 3 of these same photonic interactions.  3/1,000,000,000 atoms are energized, so again using basic probability, there is basically a 1/1 chance that the photon will strike an absolute zero atom.  In this example, the photon did not win the super-lotto with powerball and did in fact hit the surface of an unenergized atom and was absorbed.  4 to nuthin!! [edited for clarity]

Energy has again transferred from cold to hot [edited].  Jeff Id, god of basic high-school thermodynamics, has done the impossible!!  Who let the cats out!

PSI cannot accept this ridiculously basic thermodynamics, although every member I’ve run across has their own morphed version of thermo, so I won’t be surprised when one of the folk agrees with this and comes up with a different and equally mental argument.

How is a single photon relevant?  PSI can account for all of the photons from the cold source by using traditional physics, and the equations show that the cold source does not heat up a hotter source.

My bold.  My example follows the equation above but contradicts the bold of their own post0.  My example is also standard thermodynamics.  My example is accurate, standard, simple, explains how quantum physics is relevant and completely destroys most of the PSI member arguments, leaving room only for those who are more mentally muddled than others.   But I’m not done yet!

So PSI members of different ilk may be the problem.  We have had more than one of them even claim that somehow the photon knows it came from a colder body and will automatically reflect without absorption from the warmer body.  Truly silly stuff but it’s right there in the equation.

Q = σ(Th4)     — hot body “emission”

Q = σ(Tc4)     — cold body “emission”

Both are emitting photons!!!

Both emitting energy outward..

both receiving energy inward from both hot and cold bodies per the example above.

the difference in emission (assuming all energy strikes the other body) is the amount of heat energy transferred:

Q ~ σ(Th4) – σ(Tc4)

Q ~ σ(Th4 – Tc4)

And the probability lesson shown in the extreme above, is why photons which ARE emitted from cold objects, don’t “bounce off” of hot ones. At Earth temperatures (meaning not plasma hot) nearly 100% of the energy states potentially available for absorption of a photon are actually available at any one time.  Near 100%.  What that means is that cold body emissions, conductions etc… are absorbed into hotter bodies, making them warmer than they otherwise would be.  Cold to hot…

This is not a violation of thermodynamics.

The reality is though that despite nearly 100% of the absorptive sites being available, any non zero percentage of un-energized states in the atoms would allow for absorption from cold to hot bodies, and since the equation above is based on de-energization of an available site, they prove my case for me.

Energy can move from cold to hot!  Just don’t try to do any work with it — that is a different story and rather cute imho.

So in global warming science, the government claims consensus on global warming danger, but the government is lying by omission.  There is no significant controversy on the absorption wavelengths or emission wavelengths of different materials at different temperatures, so there is no real argument in science about the basic CO2 warming effect.   However, there is no consensus (good name for a blog) on dangerous warming, and most “scientific” people believe CO2 warming is NOT imminently dangerous.  Therefore there is absolute consensus with respect to the warming effect of CO2, it is basic optics/thermodynamics –  outside of the flat earth PSI types.

In the real world, there is no consensus that the effect is an actual problem and significant evidence that it is absolutely NOT a problem.

Concerned Scientist Kenji knows — Unvetted

Posted by Jeff Id on January 30, 2017

So, to the couple hundred readers who still stop by, Anthony Watts has a fun activity going on.  Kenji, the full fledged yet unvetted member of the union of concerned scientists, is going to Washington.  Kenji has been “concerned” for a half a decade at this point — 35ish dog years depending on which linear or nonlinear dog to human conversion you prefer. Heck I don’t know Kenji, but judging by the muzzle, he’s experienced nearly half a tenth of a degree of average global temperature rise, and in California — that’s food-dish spilling “serious crap”.

But let’s not talk methane….  This is about saving the planet’s fuzzy green ass and that is a serious matter.

Help send Kenji to the “Scientists March on Washington” event!

Look at the high forehead and messy hair.  A clear sign of inspired genius.  Long hours of studying nature with little room for grooming.  With his overwhelmingly efficient thermal coating, Kenji is a natural representative for those who recognize CO2 traps heat, yet somehow he can still find his food bowl!   Adaptation folks —it’s the name of the game!

Anyway I chucked in, you should too.  The fuzzy kid might need a kevlar coat to walk today’s Washington DC crowds.  He does have that cute but angry look of a snowflake though so hopefully the rest won’t bother to read Anthony’s sign.

Trump Immigration Executive Order “Full Text” — Bigot

Posted by Jeff Id on January 29, 2017

Definition of bigot

  1. :  a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially:  one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance

So that is what I was called by the Neuvo-climate bloggers of recent years.   Bigot- for daring to suggest that the idea that immigration be stopped from middle eastern countries until those immigrating could be fairly documented.  Hmm.  Today, the leftist extremists which govern most media are in a tizzy because that is exactly what happened.   Trump and conservatives like myself are being labeled a bigot by any leftist who can.  Frankly I’m sick of being called names by the unlearned, but there are a lot of them.  Any anti-freedom moron with a typewriter is working their exclamation point and cap lock to the maximum level this week, to show that Trump is a bigot, the law has no reason etc…

I’m a logical person so I read arguments against and for.   My favorite argument against is that Trump ignored countries that he had business interest in.  As is almost always the case in left-land this is FALSE.  The countries were chosen by their willingness and ability to provide proper immigration documentation per our federal agencies – PRIOR to Donald Trump taking office.  So for the slow readers — Trump used existing law to select the countries…

I don’t have the personal will to explain everything to people who can’t figure out the realities of this executive order.  This order is well within his constitutional legal authority — for those who make that stupid argument.  It is clean and simple and in my apparently much bigoted opinion, doesn’t go far enough.

Marches for the practice of Socialism, Nazi’s and Sharia rate as high as the KKK in my book.  They are all the same thing in different forms.  Beating women with sticks is standard practice under Sharia law, although they are kind enough to designate the size of the stick.  Driving is no good, voting is not an option, legal testimony is less worthy, on and on.

These countries are infested with illness of thought, as are many in our own left-wing population.  The Muslim countries who made the list contain good people who know right from wrong BUT they are not of sufficient percentages to remove the evils of Sharia from the central power systems of their governments.  In fact, they are not even close to achieving that lofty 17th century goal.  The concentration of support for Sharia is in fact overwhelming, because the population has no free choice in the matter and has been raised since birth to understand that they will not ever have that choice.  We therefore have a high probability of importing very bad people from the Muslim world.  Germany and France have recently proven what happens when you import large numbers of un-vetted Syrian immigrants.  Their dead and raped families are not unworthy of our consideration.

And that is why the law isn’t strong enough.

Most Muslims support blatantly evil Sharia “law”, but Muslims were not banned from the US by Trump, only pre-selected countries who will not provide sufficient documentation for their exported citizens were banned – temporarily.  Plenty of Muslims are still allowed in.  To make my point, if you believe in statistics, MOST people from Muslim countries, by a long shot, will be Sharia law supporters. What do I know though, the snowflake girls who holler about “women’s rights” and “not my president” –that really obviously need folks with brains to keep them straight– think I’m just a Bigot with a keyboard.

It is hard to find the full text of Trumps order so I did and copied it here.

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and laws of the United States of America, including the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq., and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, and to protect the American people from terrorist attacks by foreign nationals admitted to the United States, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Purpose. The visa-issuance process plays a crucial role in detecting individuals with terrorist ties and stopping them from entering the United States. Perhaps in no instance was that more apparent than the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, when State Department policy prevented consular officers from properly scrutinizing the visa applications of several of the 19 foreign nationals who went on to murder nearly 3,000 Americans. And while the visa-issuance process was reviewed and amended after the September 11 attacks to better detect would-be terrorists from receiving visas, these measures did not stop attacks by foreign nationals who were admitted to the United States.

Numerous foreign-born individuals have been convicted or implicated in terrorism-related crimes since September 11, 2001, including foreign nationals who entered the United States after receiving visitor, student, or employment visas, or who entered through the United States refugee resettlement program. Deteriorating conditions in certain countries due to war, strife, disaster, and civil unrest increase the likelihood that terrorists will use any means possible to enter the United States. The United States must be vigilant during the visa-issuance process to ensure that those approved for admission do not intend to harm Americans and that they have no ties to terrorism.

In order to protect Americans, the United States must ensure that those admitted to this country do not bear hostile attitudes toward it and its founding principles. The United States cannot, and should not, admit those who do not support the Constitution, or those who would place violent ideologies over American law. In addition, the United States should not admit those who engage in acts of bigotry or hatred (including “honor” killings, other forms of violence against women, or the persecution of those who practice religions different from their own) or those who would oppress Americans of any race, gender, or sexual orientation.

Sec. 2. Policy. It is the policy of the United States to protect its citizens from foreign nationals who intend to commit terrorist attacks in the United States; and to prevent the admission of foreign nationals who intend to exploit United States immigration laws for malevolent purposes.

Sec. 3. Suspension of Issuance of Visas and Other Immigration Benefits to Nationals of Countries of Particular Concern. (a) The Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Director of National Intelligence, shall immediately conduct a review to determine the information needed from any country to adjudicate any visa, admission, or other benefit under the INA (adjudications) in order to determine that the individual seeking the benefit is who the individual claims to be and is not a security or public-safety threat.

(b) The Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Director of National Intelligence, shall submit to the President a report on the results of the review described in subsection (a) of this section, including the Secretary of Homeland Security’s determination of the information needed for adjudications and a list of countries that do not provide adequate information, within 30 days of the date of this order. The Secretary of Homeland Security shall provide a copy of the report to the Secretary of State and the Director of National Intelligence.

(c) To temporarily reduce investigative burdens on relevant agencies during the review period described in subsection (a) of this section, to ensure the proper review and maximum utilization of available resources for the screening of foreign nationals, and to ensure that adequate standards are established to prevent infiltration by foreign terrorists or criminals, pursuant to section 212(f) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1182(f), I hereby proclaim that the immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the United States of aliens from countries referred to in section 217(a)(12) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1187(a)(12), would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and I hereby suspend entry into the United States, as immigrants and nonimmigrants, of such persons for 90 days from the date of this order (excluding those foreign nationals traveling on diplomatic visas, North Atlantic Treaty Organization visas, C-2 visas for travel to the United Nations, and G-1, G-2, G-3, and G-4 visas).

(d) Immediately upon receipt of the report described in subsection (b) of this section regarding the information needed for adjudications, the Secretary of State shall request all foreign governments that do not supply such information to start providing such information regarding their nationals within 60 days of notification.

(e) After the 60-day period described in subsection (d) of this section expires, the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State, shall submit to the President a list of countries recommended for inclusion on a Presidential proclamation that would prohibit the entry of foreign nationals (excluding those foreign nationals traveling on diplomatic visas, North Atlantic Treaty Organization visas, C-2 visas for travel to the United Nations, and G-1, G-2, G-3, and G-4 visas) from countries that do not provide the information requested pursuant to subsection (d) of this section until compliance occurs.

(f) At any point after submitting the list described in subsection (e) of this section, the Secretary of State or the Secretary of Homeland Security may submit to the President the names of any additional countries recommended for similar treatment.

(g) Notwithstanding a suspension pursuant to subsection (c) of this section or pursuant to a Presidential proclamation described in subsection (e) of this section, the Secretaries of State and Homeland Security may, on a case-by-case basis, and when in the national interest, issue visas or other immigration benefits to nationals of countries for which visas and benefits are otherwise blocked.

(h) The Secretaries of State and Homeland Security shall submit to the President a joint report on the progress in implementing this orderwithin 30 days of the date of this order, a second report within 60 daysof the date of this order, a third report within 90 days of the date of this order, and a fourth report within 120 days of the date of this order.

Sec. 4. Implementing Uniform Screening Standards for All Immigration Programs. (a) The Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security, the Director of National Intelligence, and the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation shall implement a program, as part of the adjudication process for immigration benefits, to identify individuals seeking to enter the United States on a fraudulent basis with the intent to cause harm, or who are at risk of causing harm subsequent to their admission. This program will include the development of a uniform screening standard and procedure, such as in-person interviews; a database of identity documents proffered by applicants to ensure that duplicate documents are not used by multiple applicants; amended application forms that include questions aimed at identifying fraudulent answers and malicious intent; a mechanism to ensure that the applicant is who the applicant claims to be; a process to evaluate the applicant’s likelihood of becoming a positively contributing member of society and the applicant’s ability to make contributions to the national interest; and a mechanism to assess whether or not the applicant has the intent to commit criminal or terrorist acts after entering the United States.

(b) The Secretary of Homeland Security, in conjunction with the Secretary of State, the Director of National Intelligence, and the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, shall submit to the President an initial report on the progress of this directive within 60 days of the date of this order, a second report within 100 days of the date of this order, and a third report within 200 days of the date of this order.

Sec. 5. Realignment of the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program for Fiscal Year 2017. (a) The Secretary of State shall suspend the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) for 120 days. During the 120-day period, the Secretary of State, in conjunction with the Secretary of Homeland Security and in consultation with the Director of National Intelligence, shall review the USRAP application and adjudication process to determine what additional procedures should be taken to ensure that those approved for refugee admission do not pose a threat to the security and welfare of the United States, and shall implement such additional procedures. Refugee applicants who are already in the USRAP process may be admitted upon the initiation and completion of these revised procedures. Upon the date that is 120 days after the date of this order, the Secretary of State shall resume USRAP admissions only for nationals of countries for which the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and the Director of National Intelligence have jointly determined that such additional procedures are adequate to ensure the security and welfare of the United States.

(b) Upon the resumption of USRAP admissions, the Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of Homeland Security, is further directed to make changes, to the extent permitted by law, to prioritize refugee claims made by individuals on the basis of religious-based persecution, provided that the religion of the individual is a minority religion in the individual’s country of nationality. Where necessary and appropriate, the Secretaries of State and Homeland Security shall recommend legislation to the President that would assist with such prioritization.

(c) Pursuant to section 212(f) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1182(f), I hereby proclaim that the entry of nationals of Syria as refugees is detrimental to the interests of the United States and thus suspend any such entry until such time as I have determined that sufficient changes have been made to the USRAP to ensure that admission of Syrian refugees is consistent with the national interest.

(d) Pursuant to section 212(f) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1182(f), I hereby proclaim that the entry of more than 50,000 refugees in fiscal year 2017 would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and thus suspend any such entry until such time as I determine that additional admissions would be in the national interest.

(e) Notwithstanding the temporary suspension imposed pursuant to subsection (a) of this section, the Secretaries of State and Homeland Security may jointly determine to admit individuals to the United States as refugees on a case-by-case basis, in their discretion, but only so long as they determine that the admission of such individuals as refugees is in the national interest — including when the person is a religious minority in his country of nationality facing religious persecution, when admitting the person would enable the United States to conform its conduct to a preexisting international agreement, or when the person is already in transit and denying admission would cause undue hardship — and it would not pose a risk to the security or welfare of the United States.

(f) The Secretary of State shall submit to the President an initial report on the progress of the directive in subsection (b) of this section regarding prioritization of claims made by individuals on the basis of religious-based persecution within 100 days of the date of this order and shall submit a second report within 200 days of the date of this order.

(g) It is the policy of the executive branch that, to the extent permitted by law and as practicable, State and local jurisdictions be granted a role in the process of determining the placement or settlement in their jurisdictions of aliens eligible to be admitted to the United States as refugees. To that end, the Secretary of Homeland Security shall examine existing law to determine the extent to which, consistent with applicable law, State and local jurisdictions may have greater involvement in the process of determining the placement or resettlement of refugees in their jurisdictions, and shall devise a proposal to lawfully promote such involvement.

Sec. 6. Rescission of Exercise of Authority Relating to the Terrorism Grounds of Inadmissibility. The Secretaries of State and Homeland Security shall, in consultation with the Attorney General, consider rescinding the exercises of authority in section 212 of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1182, relating to the terrorism grounds of inadmissibility, as well as any related implementing memoranda.

Sec. 7. Expedited Completion of the Biometric Entry-Exit Tracking System. (a) The Secretary of Homeland Security shall expedite the completion and implementation of a biometric entry-exit tracking system for all travelers to the United States, as recommended by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.

(b) The Secretary of Homeland Security shall submit to the President periodic reports on the progress of the directive contained in subsection (a) of this section. The initial report shall be submitted within 100 days of the date of this order, a second report shall be submitted within 200 days of the date of this order, and a third report shall be submitted within 365 days of the date of this order. Further, the Secretary shall submit a report every 180 days thereafter until the system is fully deployed and operational.

Sec. 8. Visa Interview Security. (a) The Secretary of State shall immediately suspend the Visa Interview Waiver Program and ensure compliance with section 222 of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1222, which requires that all individuals seeking a nonimmigrant visa undergo an in-person interview, subject to specific statutory exceptions.

(b) To the extent permitted by law and subject to the availability of appropriations, the Secretary of State shall immediately expand the Consular Fellows Program, including by substantially increasing the number of Fellows, lengthening or making permanent the period of service, and making language training at the Foreign Service Institute available to Fellows for assignment to posts outside of their area of core linguistic ability, to ensure that non-immigrant visa-interview wait times are not unduly affected.

Sec. 9. Visa Validity Reciprocity. The Secretary of State shall review all nonimmigrant visa reciprocity agreements to ensure that they are, with respect to each visa classification, truly reciprocal insofar as practicable with respect to validity period and fees, as required by sections 221(c) and 281 of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1201(c) and 1351, and other treatment. If a country does not treat United States nationals seeking nonimmigrant visas in a reciprocal manner, the Secretary of State shall adjust the visa validity period, fee schedule, or other treatment to match the treatment of United States nationals by the foreign country, to the extent practicable.

Sec. 10. Transparency and Data Collection. (a) To be more transparent with the American people, and to more effectively implement policies and practices that serve the national interest, the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Attorney General, shall, consistent with applicable law and national security, collect and make publicly available within 180 days, and every 180 days thereafter:

(i) information regarding the number of foreign nationals in the United States who have been charged with terrorism-related offenses while in the United States; convicted of terrorism-related offenses while in the United States; or removed from the United States based on terrorism-related activity, affiliation, or material support to a terrorism-related organization, or any other national security reasons since the date of this order or the last reporting period, whichever is later;

(ii) information regarding the number of foreign nationals in the United States who have been radicalized after entry into the United States and engaged in terrorism-related acts, or who have provided material support to terrorism-related organizations in countries that pose a threat to the United States, since the date of this order or the last reporting period, whichever is later; and

(iii) information regarding the number and types of acts of gender-based violence against women, including honor killings, in the United States by foreign nationals, since the date of this order or the last reporting period, whichever is later; and

(iv) any other information relevant to public safety and security as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security and the Attorney General, including information on the immigration status of foreign nationals charged with major offenses.

(b) The Secretary of State shall, within one year of the date of this order, provide a report on the estimated long-term costs of the USRAP at the Federal, State, and local levels.

Sec. 11. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(b) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.
