Pam Bales, 70, is a veteran rescue hiker who spent years on the Pemigewasset Valley Search and Rescue Team, bailing out hikers in dangerous situations. But on Wednesday, Bales said years of back-country experience and wilderness first aid aren’t necessary to help people — we just need to exercise some human compassion. “I think everyone in this room has some rescuer in us,” Bales said. “We are human and we care.”

The Supreme Court will allow the Trump administration to enforce new immigration rules against asylum seekers at the southern border.The high court did not give reasons for its Wednesday night decision or disclose a vote count, as is typical of orders of this nature. Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote a short dissent, which Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg joined.In effect, the restrictions deny asylum to migrants who pass through another country on their way to the U.S. without first seeking protected status there. Border Patrol has intercepted approximately 350,000 asylum seekers from the northern triangle countries

Supreme Court allows broad
enforcement of asylum limits
Posted by M2 9/11/2019 9:30:25 PM Post Reply
The Supreme Court is allowing nationwide enforcement of a new Trump administration rule that prevents most Central American immigrants from seeking asylum in the United States. The justices’ order late Wednesday temporarily undoes a lower-court ruling that had blocked the new asylum policy in some states along the southern border. The policy is meant to deny asylum to anyone who passes through another country on the way to the U.S. without seeking protection there. Most people crossing the southern border are Central Americans fleeing violence and poverty. They are largely ineligible under the new rule, as are asylum seekers from Africa, Asia and South America who arrive regularly at the southern border.

One of the saddest and most frustrating things about the aftermath of the sexual revolution is the heights of cognitive dissonance our society engages in about its effects. This cognitive dissonance is not just in evidence among the left, although certainly their application of, to take one example, abortion is increasingly rabid and eerie. The plain truth is that private choices about sex have public consequences. There is no such thing as “what happens in the bedroom stays in the bedroom.” Innocent and helpless human beings are created inside those bedrooms whether their parents desire that or not,

The Supreme Court will allow the Trump administration to fully enforce a new policy aimed at curbing Central American migrants’ ability to claim asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border, handing a victory to President Trump in his efforts to crack down on illegal immigration. The Court's decision came down Wednesday evening, with Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissenting.

JUAREZ, Mexico — A United Nations agency, with funding from the U.S. State Department, is transporting thousands of immigrants from the U.S.-Mexico border back to Central America in a program that has drawn the ire of migrant legal advocates. The advocates question whether migrants fully understand their rights when they accept free plane and bus tickets home. The program was in full swing Tuesday in this border city opposite El Paso, where 63 Honduran migrants boarded two buses chartered by the U.N.’s International Organization for Migration, which has transported more than 2,200 Central American migrants home from Juarez and Tijuana so far this year, a spokesman said.

Memorials are multidimensional, dichotomous spaces. They exist somewhere between presence and memory. They are built for the collective and for those personally affected. They are places for reflection and observation; for reckoning, for grieving, and for peaceful acceptance. They are tourist destinations and graveyards. The filmmaker Sara Newens captures these tensions in Footprint, her evocative observational portrait of the 9/11 Memorial. The short documentary spends 24 hours at the former Ground Zero, where on September 11, 2001, 2,606 people lost their lives when the World Trade Center towers were struck by two planes (390 others died at the Pentagon and in the four aircraft involved in the terror attacks).

The September 11, 2001 attacks were the result of an unmitigated intelligence failure. No, 9/11 was not an “inside job,” as many conspiracy theorists believe. Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaeda network were responsible. But, the 9/11 plot did not happen in a vacuum. In reality, America’s elephantine national security state had known of bin Laden and his network years before the horrific events of 9/11. Some of the most powerful people in the national security state routinely downplayed and ignored the threat al-Qaeda posed to the United States before 19 hijackers murdered 2,911 people in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania.

President Donald Trump warned potential terrorists during his 9/11 memorial speech on Wednesday that the United States will seek them out and destroy them, “wherever they are.” The president spoke at a memorial ceremony at the Pentagon on the eighteenth anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks that killed nearly 3,000 Americans. “We come here in the knowledge that we cannot erase the pain or reverse the evil of that dark and wretched day,” Trump said. “But we offer you all that we have — our unwavering loyalty, our undying devotion, and our eternal pledge that your loved ones will never, ever be forgotten.”

Not since Pearl Harbor did Americans unite with righteous anger against a foreign aggressor as they did after 9/11.

President Trump’s newly-enacted policy of denying asylum to illegal aliens who first passed through another country prior to entering America has been re-implemented, as per a report from Politico. U.S. District Court Judge Jon Tigar of San Francisco has ordered a nationwide injunction on the policy, which would require immigrants to seek asylum in the first country that they entered after leaving their home countries. However, the Trump Administration requested a stay on the injunction, which was ultimately granted by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. This now limits the injunction to only states that are within the 9th Circuit, while the policy can now be enforced in all other states.

He instead wanted to stand on a box in the middle of a pub and just let it rip. So that’s what he did. The crowd was young, diverse and notably not reaching to write checks, but it was plenty ready to hear his profane riff on his proposed gun buybacks. He downed a Ricochet IPA while answering questions and then took his place in the picture line and ordered another beer. Two women joined him in raising their pints. “Salud,” he said.

Contrary to the punchlines of late-night comics, the attack that Rand Paul suffered back in 2017 when his neighbor tackled him over landscaping disagreements was not funny at all. The crime left Paul with major complications including recurring bouts of pneumonia after damage to his lungs, and multiple surgeries including a partial lung removal and corrective surgery on a hernia. It isn’t a stretch to say that Senator Paul could have died. The attack was severe and the damage has been long-lasting.

Every September, Americans take time on the anniversary of 9/11 to share their memories of that fateful day, recall how they first learned the news and pay tribute to the heroes who answered the unexpected call of duty.

FBI Director Christopher Wray has tried to stay out of the public eye, and while he does not have liar and leaker James Comey’s flair for flamboyant, self-serving press conferences, and doesn’t have his fingerprints all over the Russian collusion hoax and FISAgate, he still is a D.C. swamp rat working behind the scenes to protect his deep-state cronies.    Headline corrected.

Trump-shaped 9th Circuit hands
White House major win on asylum policy

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals -- long a liberal bastion that has been aggressively reshaped into a more moderate court by the Trump administration -- handed the president a major win late Monday, lifting a nationwide injunction on his asylum policy. Obama-appointed U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar in California on Monday had reinstated a nationwide halt on the Trump administration's plan to prevent most migrants from seeking asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border, if they first crossed through another country on the way. But in an administrative order first obtained by Politico, the 9th Circuit rolled Tigar's ruling right back, saying it should only apply
Dems admit Trump helped GOP candidates

Dan Bishop was projected to win a fiercely contested special U.S. House election for the 9th District that was widely seen as a bellwether for the president's chances in the 2020 election.

Even Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Chairwoman Cheri Bustos acknowledged that the president contributed to Bishop's win,
