Defense secretary promises military
DREAMers will be ´protected´ from
deportation even if DACA ends

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/9/2018 4:47:47 PM

Defense Secretary James Mattis said Thursday that servicemen and women who are protected from deportation by an Obama-era program set to expire on March 5 will be ´protected´ regardless of their immigration status. The Pentagon chief told reporters that he had spoken with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen about the roughly 800 members of the U.S. military whose status was thought to be in limbo. People who are on active duty or serve in the reserves won´t be targets for deportation, he said, adding that veterans with honorable discharges would also be guaranteed safe harbor in the U.S., along with new recruits

Yes, the 800 can stay as long as they don´t commit any felonies. The other 99.9% have to leave.

We´re told these DACA folks are such great patriots. You´d think many more would sign up for the military to serve the country they love.
Just sayin´

No problem with them being "protected" while they serve honorably in the military.

Trump has really put the Dems in a box, now that he´s calling for 1.8 million to be in the deal, and they aren´t taking it, yet.

It´s showing clearly the Dems aren´t about just getting legal status for them, but now want to ensure there is a continuous loophole they can exploit in future years.

Remember, there was a whole other group of unaccompanied minors, mostly from Central America, the Obama admin assisted to get here, so anything with DACA will set a precedent.

Establish a legal status, then allow them to apply for citizenship just like anyone else. This process takes about 10-12 years, so is NOT amnesty.

Hate to disagree with SecDef but he is wrong.
VERY wrong.
Ever hear of the Foreign Legion? Probably. French Legion Etranger. Not allowed on French soil, unless that´s changed: they weren´t totally stupid. Spanish at least used to have an equivalent, I believe.
Why should we arm and train a bunch in our midst who have no loyalty nor ties to the nation? Dumb idea. Anyone other than me ever bother to READ Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire"?? My volumes are a few feet from me. They recount, as do others, what some of the results were of accepting enemy foreign nationals into the army. Those armed and equipped foreign nationals, owing no sense of allegiance to Rome, but did to their clan and tribe, had more than a bit to do with the eventual collapse. WE should be smart enough to learn form their mistakes.

No, David. Secretary Mattis did not “promise”. Apparently 800 are in the categories named:

People who are on active duty or serve in the reserves won´t be targets for deportation, he said, adding that veterans with honorable discharges would also be guaranteed safe harbor in the U.S., along with new recruits who are ´signed up and they´re waiting to go into boot camp.´

Only a judge could override that order, Mattis explained, if a ´DREAMer´ committed a serious felony or was subject to a final deportation order.


David and the DM go nuts in their headlines. And this applies to only a TOTAL of approximately 800 out of how many hundred thousand?

Anybody who serves our country in our military, especially in the US Marines deserves citizenship. The Marines don´t provide interpreters and they don´t cut you any slack because you belong to some sort of protected minority. The expect everyone, right down to the cooks to be ready to fight and kill the enemy and to follow orders. They teach you to love this country enough to risk your life for our country. That´s the kind of "dreamer" who paid the price for American citizenship.

#8, in the history of this country, we have had hundreds of thousands of non-citizens who have served this country well and faithfully.

This includes American Indians before they became citizens as group in 1924, the Irish and Germans serving in the pre-Civil War Army, Union Army and Indians War Army, the Philippine Scouts, and people from everywhere in WW2.

This policy was in effect during the Vietnam War, even for people coming from behind the Iron Curtain. I remember processing paperwork on a Bulgarian serving in the 82nd Airborne. (Looked like he rode in with Attila the Hun.)

I think the U.S. military can handle 800 people ALREADY SERVING. I vouch for the one I work with.

Israel’s sucker’s game
on the Gaza border
Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Caroline B. Glick    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 5/19/2018 10:07:37     Post Reply
There was a depressing familiarity both to Hamas’s suicide protest operation along Gaza’s border with Israel this week and to Israel’s response to it. Hamas’s jihadist regime in Gaza doesn’t have a lot of cards to play in its continuous war against the Jewish state. But, as we have been seeing since Hamas launched its campaign against the border six weeks ago, it does have one card, and no matter how often it plays that card, Israel can’t seem to figure out how to beat it. Hamas’s card is Western hostility to Israel. The Western media, along with the EU and most

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

Julian Assange´s guest list in the seven weeks leading up to the release of hacked Democratic party emails by WikiLeaks has been revealed, and includes RT reporters, German hacker Andy Müller-Maguhn and documentary maker Michael Moore. In total 80 people visited Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in the summer of 2016, which was around the time when Assange announced he was going to release emails from Hilary Clinton´s US presidential campaign. Others included Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek and prominent WikiLeaks supporters like British designer Vivienne Westwood and left-wing journalist John Pilger, according to visitor logs obtained by the Guardian and Focus Ecuador.

Hawaii´s Kilauea volcano is violently spewing lava up to 200 feet in the air and firing out lava bombs the size of refrigerators in apocalyptic scenes with six of 22 fissures active on Friday. The latest in more than two weeks of eruptions has sent fresher, hotter lava speeding towards an isolated residential area, and officials are using helicopters to see if there is anyone still there that needs assistance, Hawaii News Now reported. Residents who have already evacuated the affected area have been told not to try and return home, and emergency services and the national guard are being sent to

Donald Trump says he´ll nominate Acting Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie to permanently lead the beleaguered department. Wilkie is a former Pentagon undersecretary for personnel and readiness. He´s led the agency for two months, ever since Trump fired David Shulkin amid an internal revolt and questions about his compliance with ethics rules. Trump surprised him on Friday with an East Room announcement during a prison reform event. ´I´ll be informing him in a little while, he doesn´t know this yet, that we´re going to be putting his name up for nomination to be secretary of the Veterans Administration,´

WASHINGTON — A West Wing aide´s morbid remark about gravely ill Sen. John McCain has not yielded widespread White House soul searching. Instead it has produced a push to fire those responsible for leaking that story and others that have bedeviled President Donald Trump´s administration. Nearly a week after Kelly Sadler dismissed McCain´s opinion on Trump´s CIA nominee during a closed-door meeting by saying "he´s dying anyway," a torrent of criticism has rained down upon the White House. The administration has repeatedly declined to publicly apologize, but the fallout has shaken the West Wing, where the focus remains on who leaked

The Trump administration gets it and blames Hamas fully for the casualties in Gaza, and separating itself from ALL previous administrations, asks for no “restraint” under the circumstances. That is something entirely new. But then comes The New York Times with the same old grudge and runs its top story like this -- “Israel kills dozens and injures 2,400 at Gaza border.” Kills? That is pure yellow journalism using the active voice to spread a big lie. The passive voice works like this -- “Gas pipelines in Gaza were seriously damaged during Palestinian protests.” Why so dubious? We know the Islamic terrorists did it

Washington is on edge as it awaits the release of the highly-anticipated watchdog report on the FBI´s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, a potentially explosive document that is expected to be highly critical of former FBI director James Comey and other officials. The report is expected to address multiple questions that have lingered about the FBI´s actions leading up to the 2016 presidential election, in which Clinton found herself exonerated and then subject to another investigation in the days before voters went to the polls. In addition to Comey, a number of high-profile names could be featured when the report

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,

The man who is sixth in line to be king of Great Britain is getting married today and America has lost its mind. What does it mean to be sixth in the line of royal succession to an office that depends solely and exclusively on who your father is? It means that five family members have to die before you get the real goodies. Granted, those goodies are amazing. Who wouldn´t want to live in a thousand year old castle (too bad it´s in Scotland) or have dozens of "servants" cater to your every whim and need?

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. 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. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the

Many of the first guests to arrive were part of the approximately 1,200 members of the public that Markle and Prince Harry invited to witness their wedding, some of whom were invited due to their involvement in specific charities that are meaningful to the couple. Those guests will watch the wedding from a designated area outside of the castle, while
