A twice-deported undocumented immigrant fights to stay with his family in the U.S.

A twice-deported undocumented immigrant fights to stay with his family in the U.S.

2eagle Angel Farias’ wife, two children and five siblings were born here in the United States. His mother and two other siblings are naturalized citizens. Angel came here in 1985 at age 7.

Like many undocumented immigrants, Angel’s family is a hodge-podge of those who have papers and those who don’t. And even Obama’s proposed Executive Order wouldn’t change his status: Angel has been deported twice.

Both times, he walked across the Sonoran desert with a backpack of food and water so that he could return to his family. Just a bit more illegal behavior that supports that Mr. Farias is not the kind of immigrant that the U.S. is interested in. After first deportation Mr. Farias is supposed to be suspended for ten (10) years on re-entering the U.S.A.

Angel’s family migrated from Michoacán to Washington’s Yakima Valley, where he and his siblings often skipped school to help their parents harvest cherries and asparagus. After 30 years in Yakima, Angel was able to start his own business as a house painter. He talks and eats like an American. His son speaks better English than Spanish. Yakima is all he’s ever known.

But U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents came and found him. The last time was in 2014. He appealed his deportation, so he spent 14 months in the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, where he led a hunger strike and spent weeks in solitary confinement.

His detention impacted the Farias family’s fortunes drastically. Angel was the undocumented breadwinner for a family of American citizens (by default). While he was away, they lost their house to foreclosure, and their credit was ruined. Unable to pay bills, Angel’s wife struggled day-to-day to put food on the table.

By the time he was released on bond, Angel’s father had passed away and his wife had been diagnosed with colon cancer.

Many undocumented immigrants are like Farias – they’ve been in the country for decades, have U.S.-born children but are barred from any path to legal status.

Angel’s first deportation order was for a misdemeanor arrest on charges that were later dropped. The next two were for returning to the U.S. illegally.

Angel’s history bars him from obtaining family visas and, while he has relatives in Mexico with ties to violent crime, it also makes it highly unlikely he’ll be granted asylum here.

His life provides a glimpse on the emotional and financial impact that deportations and detentions can have on one American family.

No! My heart is not crying for Mr. Farias or any member of his family. His wife, five siblings and two children were born American citizens. Hey Congress — it’s time to get real with the Citizenship Clause in the 14th Amendment!

Moreover, we find it very difficult to believe that someone here since 1985 would be having difficulty finding a way to at least be granted Green card status.

¡Adios America!

¡Adios America!

thHFWQI5ZLThis is the name of Ann Coulter’s latest New York Times best-seller which believe it or not all of Ms. Coulter’s books have been national and international must reads. Ms. Coulter has done it again, only with this offering she really pours out the reasons — as to why in just about all instances people are believing what they are consuming from the mainstream media in our nation.

I have more reasons than I care to acknowledge as to why her unparalleled gift with the pen is so enthralling to me. You can always just visit The Contemplative Thinker and see why I am so thrilled to see her writing talents, wit, and brain at that site.               th8U3U2963

Ann Coulter writes with illumination. She is one of the most respected people on this planet. Her unique education, speaking skills and the uncanny ability to foster respect puts her in a remarkable plausibility structure.

To this end I have had the wherewithal to consider myself one of the most learned people I know vis-a-vie illegal immigration. Until I read Ms. Coulter’s ¡Adios America!, where as open as I can be she has drawn her line in the sand regarding the future of this nation unless we do act on it now.

President Obama: A Reflective Letter

President Obama: A Reflective Letter

To the glorification of the one, POTUS, Barack Obama:

Dear President Barack Hussein Obama:

map of cuban citiesPlease undertake the mission of understanding this letter. After years, months, weeks, days and whenever I was able to dedicate to those “things” that weigh us down heavily, then through a process of critically making myself aware of the effect, existence, or character of something else and therefore having the ability to see outright the truth of matters that collect upon you, Sir, I wonder if three issues that have been committed by you have been perceived and accepted by you, and if so, I am in wondrous anticipation of what you have said to your daughter’s about the two issues.

Of the first issue — which in my mind is significantly important: How were you able to travel to Cuba and while there fit in a trip to watch a baseball game and do a wave to show your support even though you knew that the terroristic act had taken place in Brussels?

How can the leader of the nation that so many are counting on for help albeit, militarily, financially, refugee status, or for food and shelter, enjoy himself with matters that mean so very little to the entire American population?

carnage in brusselsThen immediately following your recreation time in Cuba, you managed to tango with a voluptuous lady again with further knowledge of what had happened in the blood riddled, bomb bashing, and unfortunately deaths and injuries to those who are in need?

Of my last issue here — within this public letter to you — please understand that I have written to you at the White House, the Oval Office, and to the head custodian hoping to receive something, anything back from you however, to no avail.

Therefore, I ask humbly and filled with modesty about this unfortunate disaster that is happening in our beloved country. I am overly concerned as to why you have never ask my position on matters relative to illegal immigration, runaway visas, the amount of visa overstays especially in colleges and universities from those whom you esteem as the USA’s most prominent resources that of course being foreign students.

Why didn’t you fly back to at least the United States during the unforeseen massacre in Brussels? Sir I believe that this is a civil letter that needs a response by you. Thanking you in advance I remain (one who choose civility),

Yours with regret,

Jon-Paul A. Schilling, ESQ.

President Barack Obama is set to shield up to 5 million immigrants

illegalsPresident Barack Obama is set to reveal a sweeping plan to shield up to 5 million immigrants from deportation, revamp the government’s immigration enforcement efforts and overhaul the nation’s visa system, according to senior administration officials.

Interesting so far huh? That original paragraph was actually written in November 2014 and apparently filed by Jeremy Redmon at 6:00 pm for The Atlanta-Journal Constitution. The article is quite good; however, as usual the president still almost two years later has yet to determine some rather significant matters.

I am not going to place all of the blame on President Obama though he does deserve it. Yet it has been the lack of serious reform proposals written by members of Congress, Department of Homeland Security, or anyone within the State department. In fact the only groups of unheralded individuals I know of are those advocacy groups such as NumbersUSA, FAIR, Judicial Watch, and various members of this organization.

DHSThis by executive order, DHS, and affiliate agencies is what we do know: That members of the US Citizenship and Immigration Service, US Immigration Customs Enforcement, as well as members of the Border Patrol, ATF&E, and the FBI are NOT to turn back any persons attempting to bypass a border checkpoint or to cross over into the USA unless they have been arrested of a felony.

This much has always received just a dead gargle from me, especially concerning Arizona where how does one in law enforcement find out or allegedly know if some person is here illegally? The law enforcement within the state of Arizona is under US Supreme Court orders not to ask – as is USCIS, USICE, and our Border Patrol agents.

Therefore let’s ask shall we: What precisely has been done to revamp the government’s immigration enforcement efforts, SURVEY saysNothing! With the exception of changing to an “Open Borders” style nation. What exactly has been done to overhaul the nation’s visa system? SURVEY saysNothing of course with the exception of increasing the amounts of HB-1 and other worker visas.

A big part of the plan would provide work permits and three-year deportation deferrals for people who don’t have legal status but do have children who were born here or are legal permanent residents. To be eligible, they must have lived in the U.S. for more than five years, submit to background checks and pay taxes.

Obama’s plan would also expand a program granting temporary deportation deferrals and work permits to immigrants who were illegally brought here as children. The move would eliminate the age cap in the program — now at 31 — and require them to have continually resided in the U.S. from January 2010 to the present, a change from June 2007.

Further, the Obama administration will sharpen the focus of its immigration enforcement on people with serious criminal convictions and those who have recently crossed the border illegally. Related to that, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson has reworked a memo outlining immigration enforcement priorities for federal authorities. He has already released tens of thousands from custody…to roam our streets.

We have been wondering “why” so many felony arrested criminals had been released from jail. One must know it is part of King Obama’s plan.

Most of the above mentioned matters saw the light of day. However in May 2015 an Appeals Court ruled against Obama’s intentions with this plan. Something I have said and again my statement must be stated again for those Supreme Court Justices and all special interest and advocacy groups.

The idyllic notion that Congress will not work with President Obama is an absolute misrepresentation of the truth. Our congress has worked with President Obama to the earth’s end. However, it is when our congress does not agree with the president’s lofty and more than unlawful tactics — is when our congress is entitled to voting responsibilities. The president has the veto and congress has the vote.

When a person tries to undo everything that has been done for at least a generation and pursuant to the people’s wishes, congress votes against that action is congress NOT working with Obama or are they working for the citizens best interest?

The media…is it fair?

CcmKujIWEAAScEQPlease let’s not all go battsh!t at once! Within the last obnoxious seven plus years the media has been so bad that new names have been accredited to it. How about the mainstream media? The drive by media? How about the lying media? Or simply just the overwhelming misrepresenting media or the misleading media?

Today I was at my Twitter account (public) to answer questions and the like insofar as I have some AWESOME followers at the site. And these people deserve an answers to their questions. So humbly I try.

That is when I noticed a question from a New York Times reporter that wiggles her way into the current campaign. Get this one: 3 million fewer Democrats have voted in the first 15 states compared to 2008, while the GOP turnout has surged. What role has media played in fueling GOP turnout, tamping down Dems’? Signs of Turnout Trouble.

As for me gang, I almost puked right on the spot! Consider if you will how CNN got its name as the Clinton News Network. Furthermore, let’s just look at the 2008 debate between Romney and Obama where Romney made tremendous strides in the need for a smaller government, tax rates, and the immigration problem. So in fact, much to the chagrin of those listening and watching the esteemed moderator cut him off!

Then when Obama in fact was misrepresenting the costs turned into taxes or subsidies she let him continue until Obama outright lied for the 20th something time when he again made law without conferring with Congress.

So, so sorry friends I am just flabbergasted right now. Lord knows that we try and use journalistic integrity here but when matters get so fouled up then it is my service to say something about it. Here are some of the collective responses:
• From a employee at MSMBC — Even MSNBC covered long stretches of his speeches
• From Politico — Donald Trump’s campaign reached out to Speaker Paul Ryan’s operation to chat
• From the NYT They have stirred the pot for sure! Trump got tons of free media for 6 months! But GOP will help: party crumbling & SCOTUS
• Media gave Trump a free platform & now he has emerged as a 21st century Birth of a Nation (Politico)

This is typical liberal bull squat! It certainly was not the media who cherished the notion that at least 17 GOP members along with many debates to cover. As I understand liberals they form (somehow) into these elitist individuals and through their blame and discontent cry, beg, filibuster, ad nauseumuntil the right leaning people just give in.

Stop Hillary Clinton with Your Mind

Stop Hillary Clinton with Your Mind

xlnt brain1You may be thinking, “Oh well, our author has gone nutz — and now he is recommending soothsaying tactics or mental abilities of paranormal use, or maybe he thinks there is a way of coming together as a community and using any plan necessary, let’s contact the ‘Über being’ by chanting, dancing, or doing ancient tribal magic and mysteriously stopping Hillary Rodham Clinton from winning the Democratic Party’s nomination so that she cannot move closer to running in a general election for the Office of President.”

Nah — that is not what this author is suggesting whatsoever. Now for the teachable moment. How many of you have learned anything over the last seven and a half years? [All hands raised up] Good, great even. Now then how many of you learned what needs to be done within the American society that, in fact, has not been done?

Clinton-Email-ScandalHow many of you have actually learned that by a survey and/or poll put out by the Democratic National Party that the number one issue when other democrats were surveyed was “Mistrust and Lying,” pursuant to Hillary Clinton? As it already is this politician is being investigated by the FBI and the Justice department that of course deal with her unethical and apparently unabated use of her own illegal server to transmit Classified or other Top Secret material to whomever she chose.

Allow me to ask you — if Edward Snowden, formally of the National Security Agency (NSA) returned to the United States and decided to run for a party’s nomination would you remotely consider him? So what is the difference between Snowden and Clinton?

Again today I was acutely reminded that Hillary Clinton’s emails were substantially worse! In her emails she listed names of foreign assets working for the CIA. Moreover, Clinton openly exposed the names and locations of American assets working for the CIA.

According to Judge Napolitano, the senior judicial analyst at Fox News, “I saw emails, not 1500px-DesertStormMap_v2_svgthe ones that the inspectors general saw, I saw emails that have been revealed under the Freedom of Information Act. And in them, she is discussing the location of French fighter jets during the NATO bombardment of Libya, how big the no fly zone is, where the no fly zones are, and are you ready for this? – the location of Ambassador Stevens, who of course was murdered, in Libya.

If that is not classified, if she didn’t think that was classified, she has no business being in public office.”

A controversy arose in March 2015, when it became publicly known that Hillary Clinton exclusively used her family’s private email server for her official email communications while she was the United States Secretary of State, rather than using official State Department email accounts maintained on federal government servers.

There is debate as to the propriety of various aspects of Secretary Clinton’s arrangement. Some experts, officials, and members of Congress contended that her use of private messaging system software, and a private server, and the deletion of nearly 32,000 emails that she deemed private, violated State Department protocols and procedures, and federal laws and regulations governing recordkeeping requirements. In response, Clinton has said that her use of personal email was in compliance with State Department laws and regulations, and that former secretaries of state had also maintained personal email accounts.

All this author is stating is to simply use your mind’s thoughts about these already mentioned facts, and then ask yourselves, “Would I want or need a Nontrustworthy, Openly Lying, very secretive person in charge of the United States?”

What is America Being Made Into..?

What is America Being Made Into..?

MV5BOTA2NjI3ODExNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMjU3OTE5MDE@__V1_UY190_CR8,0,128,190_AL_Interestingly we have all watched the horror movies since the beginning of our very lives! When was the last time you or anyone you know gone to the Internet Movie Database (imdb) and if only for a moment just looked into the Horror Section?

It is even more phenomenal for me to look at the particular actors and actresses and seen what their real accomplishments have been say, into the Arts, Business, Social Sciences, and Medicine.

The point that is trying to be made here is that Boris Karloff, Betty Davis, Robert England, Lon Chaney, Bela Lugosi and Vincent Price, are recognized as one of the true icons of horror cinema, and the actor most closely identified with the general public’s perception of the “monster” from the classic Mary Shelley book, “Frankenstein” is Boris Karloff.
The irony about these thespians is that they lived almost dual lives. Most of them achieved high statuses in other fields.

It is also quite well-known that many of today’s stars or celebrities got their original startsMV5BMzc3NjEwNTM1MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNDU2NzI5NA@@__V1_UX128_CR0,0,128,190_AL_ in some form of horror or thriller film.

I know that there have been extremely bizarre debates as well as arguments that deal with the film’s rating which as I’m sure you are aware of that the more blood, female skin, graphics, and the like, the more the film must be edited to receive a “good housekeeping” rating.

This genre of film works tremendously in the United States. For reasons that are unbeknownst to me since many of the characters, stories, and scenes come from different cultures living mostly in Europe.

So what does all of this have to do with the U.S.A. and what the country is being made into? Actually, or for the most part, nothing. For anyone that argues I would say that the slasher films or horror films are definitely part of the American culture.

Actually what concerns me is that the USA is a Judeo-Christian based culture; I know that there are some that would love to argue this point — but so, so sorry. There is no argument.

MV5BMTM3NjA1NDMyMV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDQzNDMzOQ@@__V1_UY190_CR0,0,128,190_AL_People say that there are difficulties with guns — is it guns or is it people? Same thing with crime. Speaking of incarceration and the disparities’ that seem too lopsided and I will argue that people are either not looking at the truth or, our system of laws is being too manipulated or, legislation is certainly in the wrong hands. Why should we as a nation, leave the sentencing criteria up to the House or Senate or both? These people do not know sentencing because they are rich and privileged.

Finally if the law states that for a “Third Conviction” a person gets life imprisonment, then anyone disputing that claim should not call for a change in sentencing guidelines (that’s discrimination!) but rather should be challenging the guidelines. One way or another it is always going to come back to the person who committed the crime. Guns, drugs, murder, etc., if the penalty is strong enough without exceptions then the crimes will drop like bricks.
