Trump Administration Debates Lowering
Refugee Admissions to 50,000

Breitbart Big Government, by Kristina Wong

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 9/13/2017 12:50:57 PM

The Trump administration is considering reducing the number of refugees admitted to the United States over the next year to 50,000, current and former government officials told the New York Times Tuesday. As a deadline for Trump to set numbers for refugee admissions for next year approaches on October 1, the issue has set off intense debate inside the White House. Some of Trump’s advisers have argued for lower ceilings. Trump’s senior adviser for policy Stephen Miller has advocated for reducing it to 15,000, and his former chief strategist Steve Bannon was in favor of reducing it to 10,000. Trump on the campaign

I agree, ZERO is a great number. We have way too many in this country already! I think we need to get a handle on Refugees before letting any more in!

I too agree with ZERO. But that doesn´t mean we have to turn our backs to their plight. They can be settled in safe camps in or near their own country, provided with food, clothing, shelter and medical care. All for a fraction of the cost required to bring them and settle them here. That way more can be helped with available funds. It won´t satisfy Chucky Schumer´s quest for illegal voters.. But, so what?

Zero is way too high. I would suggest -50,000. That´s NEGATIVE 50K. Best time to get started is now.

In May, President Trump made his first foreign trip. The first stop was Saudi Arabia. He brought along Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. They sword-danced with the Saudis. No one in the press seemed curious enough to find out why they sword danced. Six months later, we know why. The sword dance celebrated an agreement between the Trump administration and the House of Saud. President Trump then flew directly to Israel, breaking a protocol that no longer mattered. Yes, the Saudis still don´t recognize the state of Israel but the military the Saudis are setting up is a clone

President Trump´s biggest changes in Washington are at its oldest institution, the Department of State, which is located in the Foggy Bottom section of D.C. Trump is thinning the ranks of career diplomats, which their union president protested. From Ambassador Barbara Stephenson, the president of the American Foreign Service Association union: There is no denying that our leadership ranks are being depleted at a dizzying speed, due in part to the decision to slash promotion numbers by more than half. The Foreign Service officer corps at State has lost 60 percent of its Career Ambassadors since January. (Snip) But American frustration with

In 1989 the communist regime of China delivered one of the more infamous authoritarian displays of brutality in modern history. The Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, commonly known in mainland China as the June Fourth Incident, were student-led demonstrations in Beijing, the capital of the People’s Republic of China. In response the communist regime crushed the student uprising and hundreds were massacred.Almost thirty years later, it’s now 2017, and in the exact same place, on the exact same streets, the Chinese government played the U.S. national anthem while broadcasting -for the first time ever- to their own country, the welcoming

What is going on here? Donna Brazile spent a bit of time in her just-released book, Hacks detailing her concerns over the still-unsolved murder of DNC operative, Seth Rich. Rumors remain about the cause of Mr. Rich’s death with more than a few speculating he was the one responsible for sharing details of damning DNC emails with outside sources – details that greatly hampered the Hillary Clinton campaign. Did that act lead to his death and is there a connection to Hillary Clinton? Ms. Brazile sure seems to be hinting as such. Check it out… (Image)

Women, minorities, and other so-called marginalized groups have multiple champions. All well and good, even inevitable, I suppose. Picture right now in your mind’s eye: Hillary Clinton, Ellen DeGeneres, Elton John, Black Lives Matter. Hey, even the redone Caitlyn Jenner. Yet no one has spoken for the average American male in a very long time, it seems. These are the John Wayne or even Jimmy Stewart kind of guys—men who made America great, who are now long gone, left on the roadside, passed over, or passed away. It’s taboo even to mention them. If you did, you’d be called misogynistic, sexist, racist, homophobic,

President Trump and some of his allies on the far right have found a new culprit in Tuesday’s deadly terrorist attack in Manhattan: Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.). As details emerged about the incident, prominent right-wing commentators and news outlets seized on a report from New York’s ABC affiliate that the alleged attacker, Sayfullo Saipov, had come to the United States from Uzbekistan under a State Department program known as the Diversity Visa Lottery.(Snip)Schumer did play a key role in drawing up the program in 1990. His proposals eventually became part of a broader immigration package that was passed

The German army has war-gamed the break up of the European Union in study of security crises that could face the country by 2040. Military planners in Berlin played out a scenario in which a growing number of countries follow Britain in leaving the EU, resulting in an "increasingly disorderly" world, Der Spiegel reported. "The EU enlargement has been largely abandoned, more states have left the bloc," strategists wrote in a study cited by the magazine."The increasingly disorderly, sometimes chaotic and conflictual world has dramatically changed the security policy environment for Germany and Europe." Der Speigel said the study could inform German armaments

Jim Simons, the founder of Renaissance Technologies, urged Robert Mercer to step down from his role as co-chief executive officer over concerns that his backing of Breitbart News was hurting morale at the world’s most profitable hedge fund, according to people familiar with the matter. In recent months, Mercer’s personal political projects dragged the secretive firm into the national spotlight. Mercer and his daughter, Rebekah, are prominent Republican donors and patrons of Stephen Bannon, chairman of Breitbart News, a website that backs the nationalist movement that helped elect President Donald Trump. Simons, who is a major donor to Democratic causes, negotiated Mercer’s

If the preparations for President Donald Trump’s state dinner in Seoul are any sign, he faces an uphill battle in trying to improve the often fractious ties between South Korea and Japan. The menu for the four-course state banquet on Tuesday night features shrimp caught in waters off Dokdo, islands controlled by South Korea that are also claimed by Japan (where they are called Takeshima). In a further provocation, one attendee will be a woman forced to work as a sex slave for the Japanese military during World War II. One of Trump’s goals on the trip was to boost trilateral cooperation

NEW BRAUNFELS, Tex. — Authorities worked on multiple fronts Tuesday seeking a fuller portrait of the gunman who left at least 26 people dead at a Texas church and how a breakdown in military protocols failed to flag a domestic violence conviction that should have blocked him from buying firearms. Even as tiny Sutherland Springs began funerals and mourning that touch nearly every family, more chilling details emerged of how the black-clad attacker, Devin P. Kelley, methodically tried to take as many victims as possible as he stalked the pews. David Brown, whose mother Farida survived the carnage, said she described Kelley

A day before Donald Trump arrived in Beijing for crucial talks, China arrested 3 prominent African-American athletes. It would be awful if this became a racial issue today back home. A new element could be introduced into the deal-making at the heart of presidential mission to East Asia, and these youths have a following.

If standard practices are applied, the three UCLA basketball players – including LiAngelo Ball – arrested Tuesday in mainland China under suspicion of shoplifting face between three and 10 years in prison if convicted, according to Chinese lawyers who briefed Yahoo Sports on the applicable laws. The sentencing guidelines could shift depending on the amount that the Chinese could prove was allegedly stolen. Authorities believe the players shoplifted from a Louis Vuitton store near the UCLA team hotel outside of Shanghai. The Bruins are in China to play Georgia Tech on Saturday in the season opener.

When California lawmakers return to the Capitol in January, the state chapter of the NAACP will be seeking their support for a campaign to remove “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the national anthem. The organization last week began circulating among legislative offices two resolutions that passed at its state conference in October: one urging Congress to rescind “one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon” as the national anthem, and another in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who launched a protest movement against police brutality among professional athletes by kneeling when “The Star-Spangled

The Democratic party was “leeched it of its vitality” by Former President Barack Obama and others in the lead-up to the 2016 election campaign, according to Donna Brazile, former interim chair of the Democratic National Committee. “We had three Democratic parties: The party of Barack Obama, the party of Hillary Clinton, and this weak little vestige of a party led by [Florida Rep.

Joe Biden writes in his new book that President Barack Obama once told him he would have appointed him president if he could and told him he´d "be the best president." The former vice president´s memoir Promise Me, Dad, delves into the death of his son Beau from brain cancer in 2015 and his ultimate decision to not seek the Democratic presidential nomination. In an interview with the New York Times, Biden said the subject of his son´s illness weighed on him and the president, whom he confided in as it became clear Beau would likely not survive.

Maybe it was that whole “low energy” thing. In surprisingly undiplomatic terms for elder statesmen, George W. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush, bash President Trump in a soon-to-be released book. While both of the former presidents vowed when they left office not to speak ill of their successors — a pledge they’ve kept for the most part — there’s just something about Donald J. Trump that they can’t stand. (Snip) “You can either exploit the anger, incite it, or you can come up with ideas to deal with it.” Jeb offered real solutions, “but it didn’t fit with

Former President Bill Clinton believes Trump voters were particularly vulnerable to false claims, or fake news, because they felt economically trapped in their rural communities. “In the last election, in the counties that Hillary carried, you find 64 percent of America’s GDP. In the more numerous, rural counties carried by President Trump, you find 36 percent of the GDP, even though the median income of a Trump voter was higher. What does that tell you?” Clinton told a crowd gathered at Georgetown University Monday afternoon. “Even poor people are more hopeful if they’re in a dynamic place,” Clinton said. “Being trapped with

Miko Grimes made an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” where she emphatically claimed the star quarterback’s views on the anthem protests led to his offensive line allowing him to get crushed. She even went further and said his views led to locker room fights. “A lot of people don’t know, but the reason Derek Carr got injured was because the Raiders offensive line allowed him to get injured,” Miko

The results are in and New Jersey and Virginia have elected new Democratic governors. In New Jersey, former Goldman Sachs executive and Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy expectedly defeated Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno by an estimated margin of as many as 14 points, and in Virginia, Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam defeated former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie by an estimated 7-to-8-point margin. Surely, New Jersey’s swing to a Democratic governor is a product of an unpopular outgoing Republican governor, Chris Christie, and President Trump’s unpopularity in the state as well. Further, outgoing Republican Governor Christie has the dubious status as New Jersey’s

A juror taking part in the bribery trial of Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., interrupted deliberations Tuesday to ask the presiding judge: "What is a senator?" U.S. District Judge William Walls refused to answer the juror´s question and similarly denied their request for a transcript of the closing argument from Menendez’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, per Bloomberg. Instead, the federal judge instructed the jurors to rely on their individual and collective memories to define the role of a senator and remember important points from Lowell´s final address. Jury deliberations began in Newark on Monday to determine whether Menendez is guilty of federal
