Dick Durbin Claims Amnesty Is
‘Civil Rights Issue of Our Time’

Breitbart.com, by Neil Munro

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/22/2018 9:37:50 PM

Democratic Senators believe amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants is the “civil rights issue of our time,” declared Sen. Dick Durbin, just before he voted January 22 to end the 2018 budget filibuster. Durbin’s promotion of illegal immigrants above African-Americans and other Americans spotlights the party’s decision that Americans’ deficits in wealth, job opportunities, and education are subordinate to the party’s strategy of allying with business to import foreign voters via the nation’s mass-immigration laws. Durbin spoke just before the vote began, saying: So many of you cast a vote that was very hard and very difficult because you believed — as I

Comments:
That is one of the most offensive, deranged things I have ever heard. If the black Democrat voters had any sense that should offend them beyond all comprehension. The civil rights of illegals?? That clip sure will make some great Republican campaign ads!

let’s ask if illegals want some of citizens tax money .....

how about asking taxpayers if they want to give some of their tax money to illegals - that are taking jobs our American kids should have - like construction jobs, roofing jobs, bricklayers, framers...

Nonsense. The issue of our time is Civl Rights for Americans, including the right of Americans to decide who is an American and who is foreigner. This right to define a national identity is being fought in every civilized nation in the world. And we will win it.

Durbin is just ridiculous when he says "Does a booming national economy ever touch Chicago’s most impoverished neighborhoods? Can young people be drawn out of urban isolation?"

They certainly can´t when youths in Chicago have to compete with illegal immigrants who will work for a pittance. And when the state that he has led for 11 years cannot even solve its crime issues.

Illegal aliens are foreign citizens who have broken the laws to get into our country.

"Civil rights"? AFAIK, criminals from other countries have no claims on US laws or rights.

Number 3, 4 & 5 nail it. It´s Americans Civil Rights that are being violated by the Dems and their illegal constituents.

What a shock, the Dems violating Americans Civil Rights to enrich and benefit themselves.

Seriously, what is the DOJ doing? Why are they not arresting the enablers? Seems California and Illinois are target rich environments. I know Trump has put more Judges to work. Let´s get them working.

Next the liberal Democrats will be advising that people should welcome burglars who are found in their homes. Hopefully the liberal Democrats will learn through the upcoming elections that they have again overstepped their bounds by putting illegal aliens before the safety of the American people and the valid needs of the US military.

Didn´t Mr. Durbin get the memo?

I thought they were all calling it "DACA" so that we would not know they were talking about amnesty . . . which in itself is the wrong word!

Over-used and mis-used . . . it isn´t like we are talking about amnesty for overdue library books, Mr. Durbin . . . you are talking about a giveaway of our citizenship and it is not yours to give away!

Kind of like Oprah giving away all those cars that she didn´t actually pay for herself.

It is the ‘Civil Rights Issue of Our Time’ but not they way Tricky Dicky Durbin thinks.

We already fought the Revolution over being taxed by a government that would not listen to us, and anything those criminal alien invaders suck out of our economy is an unjustifiable "tax" on hard-working citizens.

We have a Constitution and Bill of Rights, and I cannot find anywhere in those documents that says we have to:
allow anyone who sneaks in to steal public benefits,
any woman who gives birth creates an "instant citizen" & qualifies for welfare
undercut the pay and take the jobs of our at risk youth,
bring drugs, and commit three times more crimes than citizens,
foreign gang members with their crimes taking over urban areas,

And then instead of punishment for crimes committed, they get rewarded with citizenship and the ability to bring in untold millions more bloosdsucking relatives.

There may yet be another revolution before this is settled.

Secret FBI source for Russia investigation met
with three Trump advisers during campaign
Washington Post, by Robert Costa*    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/18/2018 10:15:04     Post Reply
In mid-July 2016, a retired American professor approached an adviser to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign at a symposium about the White House race held at a British university. The professor took the opportunity to strike up a conversation with Carter Page, whom Trump had named a few months earlier as a foreign policy adviser. But the professor was more than an academic interested in American politics — he was a longtime U.S. intelligence source. And, at some point in 2016, he began working as a secret informant for the FBI as it investigated Russia’s interference in the campaign, according to people familiar

U.S. law enforcement and intelligence officials have leaked extremely sensitive information about a top secret source three times in the last week while claiming that confidentially sharing information about the source with congressional investigators could greatly impact U.S. national security and potentially risk the source’s life. The officials have leaked specific information that could directly identify the source on three separate occasions to reporters at the Washington Post and New York Times. This raises even more questions about whether current top intelligence and law enforcement officials can be trusted to obey the law and to

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) warned Republican lawmakers on Friday not to expose the identity of top-secret FBI informant, saying that to do so would be "irresponsible" — and potentially illegal. "It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members of Congress to use their positions to learn the identity of an FBI source for the purpose of undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our election," Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement.

Former Director of Intelligence James Clapper said Thursday night on CNN that it was “a good thing” there was an FBI informant spying on the Trump campaign. Clapper admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He explained away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence then went on to say, “So,

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes appeared on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday, where he provided a potentially explosive hint at what’s driving his demand to see documents related to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Trump-Russia probe. “If the campaign was somehow set up,” he told the hosts, “I think that would be a problem.” Or an understatement. Mr. Nunes is still getting stiff-armed by the Justice Department over his subpoena, but this week his efforts did force the stunning admission that the FBI had indeed spied on the Trump campaign.

If you’re a fading Baby Boomer, you’re faintly amused that the FBI code-named its Trump-Russia investigation “Crossfire Hurricane.” It’s an homage to the Rolling Stones golden oldie “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” — which, come to think of it, might just be a perfect handle for John Brennan, the former Obama CIA director whose specter hovers over each critical juncture of the case. The young’uns may not believe it, but back before it was known as “classic rock,” you couldn’t just play your crossfire hurricane on Spotify. You had to spin it. Fittingly, that is exactly what the New York Times has

That source, a law-enforcement official, is speaking publicly for the first time, to The New Yorker, to explain the motivation: the official had grown alarmed after being unable to find two important reports on Cohen’s financial activity in

All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir.

Ellison said, “As you know, under the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act, it became required that the publicly traded companies would have to report the ratio between CEO pay and the median worker. It took about five years or more for the Securities Exchange Commission to create a rule. They finally did so now we have a data set of about 225 public the traded companies.

DiGenova´s claim came after the New York Times published a report titled "Code Name Crossfire Hurricane: The Secret Origins of the Trump Investigation".
