      I’ve always been convinced that the WH Correspondents dinner where so many people took such delight in trying to humiliate him was a major component in his decision to run.

      ‘CA better hold on tight’: ICE Director unveils big plans ahead of new Sanctuary law

      Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan warned that California is in for a rude awakening after the Democratic governor allowed a sanctuary state law to begin this week.

      During an interview Tuesday with Fox News host Neil Cavuto, Homan said California “better hold on tight” as President Trump’s administration is prepared to fight back against this ludicrous law shielding illegal immigrants.

      Cavuto kicked off the interview highlighting that Gov. Jerry Brown recently said that the new sanctuary law will provide more protections for illegal immigrants trying to avoid law enforcement officers from “yanking them out of there.”

      “I think it’s terrible,” Homan said, adding that Brown’s liberal politics are putting innocent American lives at risk.

      Homan said that Brown’s administration didn’t even consult with him about approving the law and what implications it will have on allowing police officers to do their job.

      “If [Brown] thinks he is protecting the community, he’s doing quite the opposite,” Homan said. “Brown is knowingly putting law enforcement at risk.”

      “There’s no sanctuary from law enforcement,” he added. “California better hold on tight – they’re about to see a lot more deportation officers. If politicians don’t protect their communities then ICE will.”

      Homan said illegal immigrants organizations can exploit this new law, which will allow them to operate across the U.S./Mexico border at will and without any restraint thanks to Brown’s measure.

      Homan said he would love to see the Justice Department look into whether mayor or governors in California can be charged criminally under the state statute, adding that Brown may have violated 8 U.S. Code § 1324. which relates to “harboring certain aliens.”

      With wholesale condemnation of Iran and nuclear deal over past year, Trump Admin squandered opportunity to bolster reformists in Tehran and prospects for peaceful political reform in Iran. Bluster is neither a strategy nor a mechanism for exercise of U.S. power and influence.

      There was never going to be any sort of “reform.” Nor were they going to give up their nuclear program.

      But now, when they do nuke someone, he can point to that and say “See? I told you! It’s all Trump’s fault”

      This is based upon his praise for islam in his various public statements. The rumor is that he converted while he was a station chief in Saudi Arabia.

      Truthfully, they DON’T agree with these policies. This is why Jerry Brown and the Democrat Legislature made the use of the public INITIATIVE more difficult for the people to use to overturn bad law made in Sacramento. Before you could put an initiative on any statewide election in California, including the primary. Now, it can only be on a general election ballot. Why? Because RED California turns out in greater force for primaries due to our primary system, which puts the two top candidates on the ballot, rather than a candidate for all parties (which is why you end up in many districts only voting for two DEMOCRATS in the general).

      Why do they keep voting these dirt bags in? The primary system. Democrats win the top two spots for the general ballot. However, next year may be interesting, because Sacramento has been slowly raising taxes and fees on its citizens over the course of last year. Candidates from the GOP should focus on 1) eliminating those taxes and fees and 2) overturning the Sanctuary State policy. You might see a change in the legislature. Californians really ARE getting fed up.

      IIRC, Trump is buddies with the editor of The Nat’l Enquirer. If I were Bannon, I wouldn’t waste time cleaning out anything I might have in a closet somewhere, I’d just start burning down the closets.

      From POTUS
      To Steve

      Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind. Steve was a staffer who worked for me after I had already won the nomination by defeating seventeen candidates, often described as the most talented field ever assembled in the Republican Party.

      Now that he is on his own, Steve is learning that winning isn’t as easy as I make it look. Steve had very little to do with our historic victory, which was delivered by the forgotten men and women of this country. Yet Steve had everything to do with the loss of a Senate seat in Alabama held for more than thirty years by Republicans. Steve doesn’t represent my base — he’s only in it for himself.

      Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was. It is the only thing he does well. Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books.

      We have many great Republican members of Congress and candidates who are very supportive of the Make America Great Again agenda. Like me, they love the United States of America and are helping to finally take our country back and build it up, rather than simply seeking to burn it all down.
