Trump Checkmates Pelosi, To End Dem’s Gravy Train With New Rule

Published

on

President Trump has enormous powers as commander in chief. Take a look at what Lincoln did if you ever wonder about what a president can and cannot do.

The nations chief executive has enormous responsibility and with that responsibility comes power, at least according to constitutional scholars like Bill Barr, Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.

As such, Trump has enormous latitude to work within the system to make change. Look, the fact is we are very generous and some people take advantage of that. Some people game the system and Trump is about to put an end to that with a simple change of the rules.

From Reuters: The Trump administration is considering reversing long-standing policy to make it easier to deport U.S. legal permanent residents who have used public benefits, part of an effort to restrict immigration by low-income people.

A Department of Justice draft regulation, seen by Reuters, dramatically expands the category of people who could be subject to deportation on the grounds that they use benefits.

Currently, those legal permanent residents who are declared to be a “public charge,” or primarily dependent on the government for subsistence, can be deported – but in practice, this is very rare.

The draft regulation would use a more expansive definition to include some immigrants who have used an array of public benefits, including cash welfare, food stamps, housing aid, or Medicaid.

While the plan is at an early stage, might not become official government policy, and is likely to attract lawsuits, it is one part of efforts by the Trump administration to restrict legal immigration, in addition to its efforts to reduce illegal immigration to the United States.

The full possible impact is not known, but the change in policy could affect permanent residents – also known as “green card” holders – who are legally entitled to use public benefits soon after their arrival in the United States, such as refugees.

Department of Justice spokesman Alexei Woltornist said the agency “does not comment on or confirm draft regulations.”

U.S. law allows for the deportation of immigrants who have become “public charges” within five years of admission if their reason for seeking help preceded their entry to the United States – for example, if they had a chronic health condition that was not disclosed.

But due to a 1948 ruling, the deportation of immigrants for using public benefits has been strictly limited to cases in which the government has demanded payment for public services, and the person has failed to pay. Immigration lawyers said they have rarely if ever heard of someone being deported for using public benefits.

The draft rule indicates the government would override that precedent to allow for deportation of some permanent residents who have used certain public benefits within five years of admission.

For the plan to go into effect, it would be subject to public comment, after which it could be revised. Attorney General William Barr would then have to sign off on it.

The public benefits in question include Supplemental Security Income (SSI), given to disabled and older people; the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps; Section 8 housing vouchers; many Medicaid benefits; and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), a cash assistance program.

According to federal policy, many permanent residents do not qualify for public benefits unless they have had a green card for five years, making it unlikely they could be targeted for deportation on the basis of “public charge” even under the draft rule.

But dozens of states have looser rules – for instance, allowing pregnant women and children who are permanent residents to access Medicaid without a waiting period.

And the effort to tighten the rules could affect thousands of immigrant veterans, refugees and asylees, who are eligible to receive many benefits without time restrictions. Active members of the military would not be affected.

Administration officials had earlier indicated that the Justice Department, which oversees U.S. immigration courts, planned to issue a regulation on who can be deported for using public benefits, but its details were not previously known.

The change, if implemented, fits with broader Trump administration efforts to squelch legal immigration by transforming public-charge rules. The administration has also slashed refugee admissions and imposed a broad travel ban on citizens of several mostly Muslim countries.

The Justice Department’s draft proposal is based on a similar plan by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to significantly broaden the definition of what it means to be a public charge.

While DHS can decide whether to grant or deny immigration benefits, DOJ’s immigration judges can also decide whether a resident ought to be deported.

The DHS is expected soon to tighten regulations so that a “public charge” would be any foreigner “who receives one or more public benefits,” including an array of cash and non-cash benefits, such as food stamps, housing vouchers, and Medicaid.

The DOJ’s draft proposal mirrors that and also directs immigration judges to consider the use of public benefits as a heavily weighted negative factor when determining whether to admit a foreigner to the United States.

The State Department is also trying to restrict entry to the United States of people it suspects might use public benefits.

Omar, Tlaib, And AOC Are Destroying The Democrat Party According To Crucial New Report

Published

on

By

The so-called ‘Democratic socialist’ wing of the Donkey Party is so toxic with voters in critical swing states that it’s becoming extremely difficult to win them next year, according to a new internal party poll.

As reported by Axios, the survey discovered that Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) are not the popular little socialist firebrands their outsized media love would indicate:

Ocasio-Cortez is recognized by 74 percent of voters, yet has an approval rating of 22 percent

Omar is recognized by 53 percent of voters and has an approval rating of just 9 percent

Voters understand what socialism is, and 69 percent of them view it unfavorably, while just 18 percent view it favorably

Capitalism, meanwhile, is viewed favorably by 56 percent of respondents, and negatively by 32 percent

The unpopularity is so bad, in fact, that Democrats’ chances of retaining control of the House, let alone defeating POTUS Donald Trump, are dim.

“If all voters hear about is AOC, it could put the [House] majority at risk,” a top Democratic source told Axios. “[S]he’s getting all the news and defining everyone else’s races.”

“Socialism is toxic to these voters,” the source added.

Axios says the survey is important because it shows that “Democrats are sounding the alarm that swing voters know and dislike socialism, warning it could cost them the House and the presidency.”

Cortez and Omar — along with Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) form the socialist-leaning “Squad” that has become House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) worst nightmare.

Their outsized attention and following is beginning to define who Democrats are, to the detriment of the entire party.

The “Squad”- what a joke.

God Bless.

Jeb Bush Breaks Silence On Generosity The Trump’s Showed The Bush Family

Published

on

By

The Bush family had a choice – go the John McCain route and have every speaker bash Trump in public or they could put politics aside and celebrate the life of a great man.

They chose the latter and that made all the difference in the world. They invited Trump and then refused to let anyone bash Trump, in fact, they demanded every speaker show the proper respect for the office that George H.W. Bush held so dear.

The Trump’s for their part returned the kindness many times over going above and beyond the call of duty to help the Bush family.

From The Daily Wire: Both the Trump and the Bush families have been all class in the wake of the 41st president’s passing. On top of refusing to pull a McCain by inviting President Trump to the funeral, the Bushes have only expressed kind words regarding the current president.

On Tuesday, while speaking before the WSJ CEO Council, Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, thanked both Donald and Melania Trump for their graciousness throughout this process, adding that President Trump “couldn’t have been nicer” when he called to pay his respects.

None of that means, however, that Jeb Bush and President Trump’s differences have been resolved. In the same talk, Jeb spoke about his father’s famous call for a “kinder, gentler America” and how that needs to come back.

“Politically it’s not winning,” Mr. Bush said of his father’s style. “But that’s not to say we shouldn’t restore it.”

 Jeb Bush hoped that his father’s death would not be “an end of an era.” Later, he spoke of the optimism he has that such an era will return.

“A whole lot of people focused on solving problems, and they know that with civility and kindness and compassion and generosity of spirit you can do far more than pushing people down and making yourself look better,” he said. “I’m much more optimistic because I don’t come here often.”

As to why President Trump would not be giving the eulogy at his father’s funeral, the former Florida governor said that it was a matter of circumstance, being that his brother is a former president.

“What people want to talk about is, Well, why isn’t the president giving the eulogy?’ It’s because we have a unique circumstance here my brother was president,” he said. “I’m sorry. First dibs.”

Laura Bush echoed Jeb’s words earlier when she thanked Melania Trump for her kindness.

From The Hill: Former first lady Laura Bush on Tuesday afternoon thanked first lady Melania Trump for a “sweet visit” to the White House.

Melania Trump led 20 members of the Bush family on a tour through the White House on Tuesday, a White House source told CNN. She reportedly gave them holiday cookies and arranged for them to meet with residence staff members.

 Laura Bush posted an Instagram photo of the family with some residence staff members Tuesday.

“A sweet visit during this somber week,” the former first lady captioned in the Instagram post.

“Thanks to Mrs. Trump for inviting our family to the White House to see the Christmas decorations and our old friends, the residence staff.”

Trey Gowdy Lands New High Profile Media Job And He Deserves It

Published

on

By

Trey Gowdy just landed a new high-profile gig and he deserves it. Trey took to social media to make the announcement that he will be moving to Fox News as a contributor.

This is a good move on many levels – Trey is known as a straight shooter who is not afraid of the hard truths and that is needed more than ever in our political landscape.

The left will be trashing Trey and Fox News when they hear the news, but this is standard procedure for media companies to hire ex-Congressmen.

Trey will moonlight for Fox and will keep his day job at his old law firm in South Carolina.

Trey tweeted out: “Appreciative to Fox News for the chance to weigh in on legal/political issues. Sure to be a lot of both in 2019. Practicing law with Nelson Mullins, contributing where appropriate with Fox, and living in South Carolina. Looking forward to a great year,” Gowdy wrote on his Twitter page on Wednesday.

From The Hill: Former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) has joined Fox News as a contributor, the network announced Wednesday.

Gowdy, who retired from Congress earlier this month, will offer political and legal analysis on Fox News and the Fox Business Network, the outlet said in a press release.

The former four-term congressman representing South Carolina’s 4th Congressional District served as chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee during his final two years in office.

From Deadline:

Among his appointments during Gowdy’s eight years representing South Carolina’s 4th District, he chaired the House Select Committee on the Benghazi attack and played a key role in Congress’ probe into then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s role in the 2012 terrorist attack that killed four Americans in Libya. He also got plenty of screen time — including many shouted mild expletives — during last year’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh.

Gowdy’s hiring follows that of retired Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona joining CBS News on Tuesday; NBC bringing on ex-Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri); and CNN signing as contributors former Ohio Gov. and 2016 GOP presidential candidate John Kasich — who also inked with CAA this month — Andrew Gillum, who ran for Florida governor last year; and ex-Reps. Mia Love (R-Utah) and Luis Guiterrez (D-Illinois). McCaskill and Love fell victim to midterm elections in November.
