Donald Trumps Immigration Platform is the “greatest political document since the Magna Carta.”

Top Conservative Commentator: Trump’s Illegal Immigration Platform ‘Greatest Political Document Since Magna Carta’

ZTrump
PolitiStick reported on the release of Donald Trump’s immigration platform. Answering the charge that he had not clearly articulated his policy platforms, Trump, the 2016 Republican frontrunner, released his platform on illegal immigration that outflanks many on the right by being more proactive than most.
Trump’s platform is, essentially, to attempt to turn-back-the-clock on illegal immigration and do what leaders should have done 10, 20, 30 years ago by making it difficult for illegals to remain in the country.
Further, Trump called for a reversal of posturing with Mexico, a nation who supports and encourages illegal immigration into the U.S., by erecting a wall on the Southern border and making Mexico bear the costs of the wall to help offset the costs furnished by taxpayers who have dealt with the economic consequences of illegal immigration here in America.
Trump also outlined a plan to end birthright citizenship for the children of illegals.
Not only did many applaud Trump’s platform, but fiery conservative commentator Ann Coulter called the platform the “greatest political document since the Magna Carta.”

I HAVE NEVER MET A WAR HERO by Michael Connelly

Attorney Michael Connelly.jpg
Michael Connelly
I know that may seem like a strange statement since I am a U.S. Army veteran, have two sons who are serving in the army, and am a lifetime member of the American Legion and past commander of a Legion Post. In addition, I have written a book about my father’s unit in World War II. It was while researching and writing that book that I realized that I would never meet a war hero, at least not anyone who would admit to being one.
          I started working on the book “The Mortarmenin 2001 I had only my father’s diary to work with. He had died in 1987 so I could not even question him to get more details. However, I learned that in the mid-nineties an association of the survivors of the 87th Chemical Mortar Battalion had been formed and the battalion records and some company records were available. I made copies of these and studied them carefully. I found that of a battalion of almost 1,000 men 18 had received the Silver Star, 103 had been awarded Bronze Stars for bravery, and 336 had been awarded Purple Hearts.
          The battalion had landed on Utah Beach on D-Day and was in combat for 326 straight days. Sixty five soldiers in the 87th were killed and hundreds were wounded. After my initial research I started contacting and interviewing the unit survivors, and in 2004 I attended the final reunion of the men of the 87th in Baltimore. There were only eleven of them able to make it, but I was able to talk to them individually and as a group.
          Some of the men I interviewed at the reunion, and both before and after, had won awards for heroism yet I couldn’t get them to talk about that. They all denied being heroes, but they gladly talked about their buddies who they all proclaimed were real heroes. I had run across this before with my own father. He was a 21 year old 1st Lieutenant on D-Day and as such Roy Connelly was one of the oldest members of the unit and was known as one of the “old guys”. This was because so many of these men were not technically men at all, but teenagers.
          When we were growing up my brother and I were occasionally allowed to go through my Dad’s foot locker he had kept after the war. It contained many pictures he had taken and well as items captured from German soldiers. There was also a case containing his Bronze Star. He just referred to it as a medal he had received. He had other medals in the foot locker and he never talked much about them. Years later we learned that this medal was different and it was for valor. Eventually, we got him to tell us the story of how he had won it.
          The 87th had been moving into a village that had supposedly been vacated by the Germans. However, the retreating Germans had not left yet and the battalion ran right into them. A fierce fire fight broke and the mortarmen suddenly found themselves fighting as infantry. It was absolute chaos and at one point my Dad saw two of the men under his command penned down behind some rubble in a street by a German machine gun crew firing from the second story of a nearby building.
          It was just a matter of time before the men were killed so my father charged the building, dodging the enemy fire. He got to the wall of the building just under the window the fire was coming from. His back was to the wall and he could not step out without drawing enemy fire, so he does the only thing he can; he pulls a grenade from his belt, pulls the pin and throws the grenade back over his head toward the window.
          It was an act of incredible bravery. If the grenade is on target, Dad would save the lives of two of his men. On the other hand, if the grenade misses the window, it will bounce back to my father’s feet and kill him instantly. Obviously, the grenade hit its mark and my father received the Bronze Star. Yet according to him, he was not a hero; “he was just doing his job.”
          I can’t tell you how many times I have heard that statement from America’s heroes. At my American Legion post you will hear many war stories because veterans will talk to each other, but not that often to others, even in their own families. However, I can’t remember any of them talking about their medals. They would just say they were doing their jobs and they mean it.
          This humility is just one of the things I see in my fellow veterans. They took an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic and they don’t believe that oath ever goes away. They ask for very little in return for their sacrifices, and unfortunately they get even less than they deserve.
          They are not just ignored by the government they defended they are labeled as potential domestic terrorists simply because they served. They are under assault by numerous federal agencies that seek to declare them incompetent to handle their own affairs and declare them too mentally ill to own firearms. They are denied not only decent medical care, but even the basic rights of all Americans to privacy and due process of law.
          Instead the PC crowd has created a new class of “heroes” for the American people. I’m not buying it. An NBA player who announces that he is gay is not a hero and does not deserve a phone call from the President. Especially from a President who is effectively destroying the U.S. Military.
A young thug who commits a robbery in Ferguson, Mo and is killed while attacking a police officer is not a hero and doesn’t deserve to have three representatives from the White House attend his funeral. Especially since no one from the White House attended the funeral of American sniper Chris Kyle, the funeral of U.S. Army General Harold Greene who was killed in Afghanistan, or any of the funerals of the marines and sailor killed by a terrorist in Chattanooga.
In addition, a man who decides he really wants to be a woman and starts wearing dresses does not deserve a heroism award from a major television network. Jason Collins, Michael Brown, and Bruce Jenner never put their lives on the line by joining the military and fighting for our country. They are not heroes and neither are the people at McDonald’s who demand $15.00 per hour for making burgers while the new recruits in the military work much more than 40 hours per week and are paid just over $8.00 per hour for risking their lives.
Compare $8.00 per hour with the millions demanded by professional athletes who work for approximately six months a year. Some of them earn millions more with product endorsements. They are proclaimed as heroes and receive all types of rewards and accolades if they win a championship for their team. When American veterans win a battle or even a war, they are told to be quiet and go away into obscurity. Military members may be honored at half time of an NFL game, but only if the military pays the teams for the privilege.
Veterans stand at attention and salute when the pledge is being said, while the First Lady of the United States sends text messages or mouths the words, “all this for that damned flag.” I know who the real heroes are in this country even though they won’t admit it. They are not overpaid sports stars, Hollywood or news media elitists, and certainly not the politicians who take the same oath to the Constitution as our soldiers do and then promptly ignore it and push for their own agenda. Our heroes are members of the military, military veterans, police officers, fire fighters and EMTs, and they deserve our respect and support.

Bill Tries To Cheer Hillary Up Over E-Mail Scandal

Bill Clinton tried to cheer up Hillary this morning by reminding her Nelson Mandela got elected President after he was released from prison
Via Fox News
One of the emails that triggered the FBI probe into Hillary Clinton’s server contained classified intelligence from three different agencies, Fox News has learned – which could mean the State Department violated a President Obama-signed executive order by authorizing its release.


That 2009 order, EO 13526, lays out the rules for "classifying, safeguarding and declassifying national security information." It states that the authority to declassify rests with the intelligence agency that originated the information.
"Information shall be declassified or downgraded by … the official who authorized the original classification ... [or] the originator's current successor," the order says.
One of the two emails that sparked the FBI probe was an April 2011 email from Clinton confidant Huma Abedin that, Fox News has learned, contained intelligence from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the National Security Agency (NSA), and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), which oversees aerial imagery, including satellites.


Despite this fact and despite the executive order, the State Department publicly released the email and its intelligence -- which was not theirs to declassify -- onto its website in May as part of the initial release of documents on the 2012 Benghazi attack.

Tens of Thousands Support Trump
stars
Dear Barbara ,
The people of South Carolina and New Hampshire have spoken. Trump leads his closest opponent by double in South Carolina - 30% to 15% and in New Hampshire a stunning 35% to 11%.  And finally in our largest lead yet we garner 40% of the vote in a poll released today. Trump is the best choice.
Last week was incredible. Tens of thousands of supporters came to our Make America Great Again Rally in Mobile, Alabama.
Our message is taking hold all across America, and the polls show it. Once again, we are on top. The American people are demanding change - real change from the everyday politics of Washington - and Donald Trump is the only candidate with the experience and demonstrated success to make our government work for the American people. 
Americans of every party believe that our policies are the best and the only ones that can fix our nation’s problems. Voters around the country are all saying the same things:
Last week Team Trump traveled to host a town hall in Derry, New Hampshire. Over 2,500 people crowded into the small auditorium to question Mr. Trump on his policies and vision for America. Our crowd was incredible - supportive, enthusiastic, and diverse. One journalist commented, “The large and diverse crowd reflected Mr. Trump’s broad appeal among Republican voters — young and old, men and women, rich and poor.”

This week we will be bring our message to voters in Iowa, South Carolina, Massachusetts, and Tennessee. We hope you are able to join us on the trail. If you are - let us know by mentioning @RealDonaldTrump and #TeamTrump. Let’s Make America Great Again!
Donald J. Trump

PATRIOTIC WARRIORS OFFICIALLY LAUNCH “CITIZENS FOR TRUMP” GRASSROOTS CAMPAIGN

Logo
citizens-for-trump-logo
Join the grassroots coalition to elect Donald J. Trump as President of the United States of America. http://citizensfortrump.com/

ABOUT CITIZENS FOR TRUMP

“Citizens for Trump” was formed by Patriotic Warriors with the goal in mind to organize a massive grassroots volunteer army to assist the Trump for President campaign in both winning the nomination for the GOP, and the general election in November of 2016.
Members from Tea Party, 912, 2nd Amendment coalitions, anti- common core groups, Christian conservative groups and many more conservative organizations are joining in this effort a group spokesperson stated.
The reason for this overwhelming response are largely the same reasons the New York real-estate mogul is climbing so rapidly in the polls. “America is sick of politicians lying and mismanaging our nation’s finances” said the organizations spokesperson.
The sad truth is; there seems to be precious little difference today in the generic Republican and Democrat. We are rapidly approaching a point of no return with our debt and at that point, none of the other issues we are facing are going to matter when we declare bankruptcy as a nation.
It is time that America had someone as president that knows economics, knows how to restructure our economy and bring our jobs back from Mexico and China. We desperately need a president that does not owe special interest groups, lobbyist or will fall prey to the corruption in Washington.
