“But It’s All About The Children” – 70% Of Immigrants Admitted Under Obama’s “Child Refugee” Program Are Actually Adults

Two years ago the Obama administration sought out to tackle a “crisis” that involved minors seeking out “human smugglers” to help with transportation across the U.S. – Mexico border.  So, with a swipe of the pen, Obama signed an executive order allowing minors of certain Central American countries to flee to the U.S. under a “refugee/parole program.”

Two years later, there’s just one problem: 70% of the people admitted under the program are actually adults.  According to MRC TV, official data from the State Department indicates that of the 1,600 aliens that have traveled to the U.S. under the CAM program to date, only 480 of them are actually under the age of 18.

Now, under the CAM program, the State Department told MRCTV in an email Wednesday that of the 1,600 aliens who have traveled to the United States to date, only 480 of them – just 30 percent – are children under the age of 18.

Conversely, a full 70 percent of those aliens who’ve been allowed into the United States under the president’s program for “minors” are adults.

The controversial initiative was launched in December 2014 as part of President Obama’s executive actions on immigrants, and was touted as a way to bring illegal alien children from certain Central American countries into the United States to be reunited with their families, who are often here illegally themselves.  The move was allegedly designed to keep underage children from relying on dangerous human smugglers to bring them across the U.S. –Mexico border illegally.  Per the State Department:

The United States is establishing an in-country refugee/parole program in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to provide a safe, legal, and orderly alternative to the dangerous journey that some children are currently undertaking to the United States. This program will allow certain parents who are lawfully present in the United States to request access to the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program for their children still in one of these three countries. Children who are found ineligible for refugee admission but still at risk of harm may be considered for parole on a case-by-case basis. The refugee/parole program will not be a pathway for undocumented parents to bring their children to the United States, but instead, the program will provide certain vulnerable, at-risk children an opportunity to be reunited with parents lawfully resident in the United States.

And, like many government initiatives, the CAM program has been completely ineffective in slowing the number of children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.  In fact, as MRC points out, U.S. Customs and Border Protection recently reported that it apprehended 97% more unaccompanied illegal minors at the border this October than last year.

On top of failing to provide much help to many child “refugees,” the CAM program hasn’t made a notable impact on the number of unaccompanied children and families who’ve elected to come into the United States illegally via the Mexican border – which is the very problem the initiative was supposedly created to alleviate.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection reports it apprehended another 4,973 unaccompanied illegal alien children (UACs) at the U.S.-Mexico border in October, up 97 percent from the 2,519 UACs that border agents apprehended in October of last year. That same month, the Obama administration released more than 6,000 illegal alien children to sponsors living in the United States.

CBP also caught another 6,029 family units crossing the Southwest U.S. border illegally during the month of October, a total 179 percent higher than the 2,162 family units the agency caught in October of last year. The border surge has increased so much, in fact, that officials are now warning the wave is already threatening to overwhelm their resources.

In fact, CBP data shows that since President Obama launched the costly CAM program in December 2014, nearly 100,000 unaccompanied alien children and more than 123,000 family units have been apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border.

But don’t worry, even though the CAM program has been proven completely ineffective, it only cost taxpayers $1 Billion in 2016 alone so no big deal.

Fake News On Top Of Fake News: Newsweek Admits They Didn’t Write Or Even Read “Madam President” Issue

Not only is the “Madam President” Newsweek issue the height of fake news, the article itself is fake news.

Newsweek’s political editor, Matthew Cooper, looked as though he’d had a rough month when he appeared on the Tucker Carlson show last night to discuss the “Madam President” debacle.  While the printing and distribution of the erroneous “commemorative edition” magazine was embarrassing enough, Cooper also revealed that no one at Newsweek wrote the Hillary article or even bothered to proofread it before it was shipped off to stores around the country.

The only good news for Newsweek is that no one else with more than 3 brain cells read it either.

Frankly, it’s difficult to discern between fact and fiction with this story because of all of the lies, half truths, and flat out fake news, but, given the quality of the writing, we suspect Cooper had little choice but to distance himself and his team completely from the magazine.  Here is a small excerpt from the article in which Trump’s supporters are again referred to as “deplorables” who “called to repeal the 19th amendment.”  Oddly, we covered the election pretty thoroughly and don’t recall anyone calling for a repeal of the 19th amendment…guess we totally missed that one.

“…as the tone of the election grew darker and more bizarre by the day, President-Elect Hillary Clinton ‘went high’ when her opponent went even lower.  No stranger to trudging through the mire of misogyny in her career as first lady, senator, and secretary of state, President-Elect Clinton continued to push for an issues-based campaign even as a handful of Trump’s most deplorable supporters, seeing the wide margins Clinton held among female voters, called to repeal the 19th amendment.  On election day, Americans across the country roundly rejected the kind of fear and hate-based conservatism peddled by Donald Trump and elected the first woman in U.S. history to the presidency.  The culminating election of a career in politics spanning 3 decades and arguably more experience than any other incoming president, 2016’s was not an easy race to watch, comment on or be a part of–but when the dust cleared it revealed a priceless moment in American history.  The highest glass ceiling in the Western World had [been shattered]…”

Of course, in distancing himself from his magazine Cooper noted that the “writing in this is, shall we say, was not up to the editorial standards of Newsweek.”

So, as Zero Hedge and hundreds of other legitimate sites come under attack from the mainstream media for reporting “fake news”, we now have a concrete example of an establishment “news” source admitting that it printed and distributed fake news under it’s corporate brand that it neither wrote nor even bothered to read, yet no one, other than Fox News, says a word?

Another failed Utopian socialist paradise slips further under the waves of history

“Economy Shattered, Currency Collapsing”: Venezuelans Wait In 6 ATM Lines For Enough To Buy Rice

When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “Two pounds[a] of wheat for a day’s wages,[b] and six pounds[c] of barley for a day’s wages,[d] and do not damage the oil and the wine!” Revelation 6:5-6

by Mac Slavo via SHTFPlan.com,

A fistful of bolivars buys… well, next to nothing. A sad state of affairs in Venezuela.

screen-shot-2016-12-02-at-5-42-53-pm

Is this how the economic crisis will play out in America? A cash strapped population, forced to the brink and stripped of their dignity?

Unfortunately, it is already well underway in Venezuela.

Daily Food Line In Venezuela

A dozen eggs was last reported to cost $150 US dollars or 705,000 bolivars (16 duffel bags of cash).

A package of rice would cost 3,500 bolivars.

A mob fighting over fake powdered milk…

Of course there is a higher standard of living in the United States overall, but tens of millions of people are already on the edge of poverty and tens of millions more can be brought to their knees in a matter of hours.

Some 46 million Americans are already on food stamps, and reliance on digital systems, EBT debit cards and electronic transactions could make Americans more vulnerable than they appear on the surface.

If the system shut down tomorrow, what would you do? How would you feed your family? Unless you are a prepper, the answer could make you uneasy.

Long lines have been the norm in Venezuela for over a year now; shortages and rations just another part of their upended lives. But now, the sheer free fall of their currency’s value has made live even more precarious – forcing many to visit as many as six ATMs just for enough to buy very basic, cheap goods.

via Bloomberg:

“I’ve had to go to six different ATMs just to get 6,000 bolivars,” said [Domingris] Montano… She needed to buy groceries. A package of rice would cost 3,500 bolivars, more than half the daily withdrawal limit, and the automated teller machine might be empty by the time her turn came. Maybe she could hit a few more before dark?

Lines are nothing new in Venezuela, where the economy is shattered, inflation is soaring and the currency fell a staggering 67 percent against the U.S. dollar on the black market last month alone — making 6,000 bolivars worth just $1.30.

[…] It takes almost six minutes for it to spit out, 3,500 bolivars at a shot, and the victor walks away with a 3-inch stack worth $5.32.

“Sometimes I go to five ATMs without getting anything at all,” he said, because the devices are busted or bare.

“The last time I cashed a check [with a live bank teller], it was for 44,000 bolivars and they gave it to me in bills of 5 and 10,” said Elyn Hernandez, a 27-year-old assistant chef. That many bolivars in notes of 10 would fill a Duffel bag. An ATM delivers in larger denominations.

Most of the people are poor, and cash has long been the only fluid transaction for most vendors, and the wide segment of the population that don’t have bank accounts.

This has proven to be an especially difficult logistical problem – as banks have responded to an accelerating crisis by placing harsh limits on the amount of money that can be withdrawn from ATMs – with the maximum equating a huge fistful of bolivars but only a few U.S. dollars of purchasing power.

That is why President Maduro has ordered a revaluing of the currency, and will issue higher denomination bills sometime early next year. But that will do little to alleviate the problems that everyday people are facing in the meantime.

They have been desperate already, but now things are reaching a point of outright hyperinflation and spiraling collapse.

So for anyone still unsure what real-time hyperinflation looks like, here is the updated visual answer.

Pray for these people, and prepare so that it might not happen to you or yours.

Hillary Clinton Gains One Whole Vote On First Day Of Wisconsin Recount

Fresh off receiving a grand total of zero Electoral College votes, Green Party nominee Jill Stein started a recount fundraising drive even though there was no guarantee a recount would take place, nor is there any chance the recount would actually change the results of the election, nor is there any guarantee the money donated will even go the a recount.

hqdefaultBefore you donate to her, you may want to read the fine print on her website. Take a look at this little fine print clause at the end of donation form:

   We cannot guarantee a recount will happen in any of these states we are targeting. We can only pledge we will demand recounts in those states.

    If we raise more than what’s needed, the surplus will also go toward election integrity efforts and to promote voting system reform.

http://lawnewz.com/high-profile/jill-stein-now-cant-guarantee-money-will-go-to-unlikely-recount/

On the first day of the Jill Stein spawned vote recount in Wisconsin, the gap between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump narrowed by 1 whole vote.

The first day’s results suggest that Stein’s efforts, which came with a hefty price of almost $3.5 million, will show a final vote tally very close to the original one.

Wire transfer of $3,499,689 from @DrJillStein has arrived at Wisconsin Elections Commission.

— Wisconsin Elections (@WI_Elections) November 29, 2016

When putting all the results together, that means the first day of the recount narrowed the gap between Clinton and Trump by just a single vote.

Trump defeated Clinton in the state of Wisconsin by over 22,000 votes or about 1% of the total vote.

Stein filed for a Wisconsin recount after suggesting that fraud or technological glitches may have swayed the results but has admitted that there is no evidence of voter fraud.

After initially claiming to need $2.5 million for the effort, she then upped the goal to $7 million and has currently nearly $6.5 million. While it’s impressive how much money she’s raised in a relatively short time, it’s even more impressive (or comical) considering that her entire campaign only raised $3.5 million.

Now, this whole thing reeks of a money raising scam at the expense of gullible snowflakes upset about the election . There’s zero evidence that hacking took place during the election, and it certainly didn’t happen in Michigan, a state that only uses paper ballots. The election happened on November 8, and the result isn’t going to change. People need to get that through their heads.

So-called peace lovers should thank God that the evil warmonger lost

Hillary Clinton is an unrepentant, evil warmonger who laughs at the murders she sanctioned.

No matter what you thought of Muammar al-Qaddafi, Hillary Clinton’s wicked, evil laugh at her sanctioned murder of him and his leaders should send chills up the spine of any decent, humane person.  Remember she took credit for the U.S. intervention in Libya, this murder of Muammar al-Qaddafi.

Hillary Clinton took credit for the U.S. intervention in Libya, but she will never take the blame. As a detailed, damning new account in The New York Times shows, the former secretary of state was indeed instrumental in pushing President Obama to pick sides in Libya’s civil war by bombing longtime dictator Muammar al-Qaddafi’s forces and arming his rebel opponents. But as the Times also shows, her warmongering is nothing to be proud of, although she bragged about it in 2011 and continues to portray its results as a paradigmatic example of “smart power.”

“Given the huge practical and moral risks of getting involved in a civil war 5,000 miles away, you’d think the standard of proof would be a little bit stronger than a preponderance of the evidence, especially since Qaddafi clearly posed no threat to the United States. He was not a threat to us anywhere. He was a threat to his own people, and that was about it. That really should have been the end of the analysis, unless you think the Defense Department’s role extends beyond defense.”  Robert M. Gates, the secretary of defense at the time

Here is how the Times sums up the consequences of Clinton’s desire to be “caught trying” in Libya:

The consequences would be more far-reaching than anyone imagined, leaving Libya a failed state and a terrorist haven…

Libya, with a population smaller than that of Tennessee, poses an outsize security threat to the region and beyond, calling into question whether the intervention prevented a humanitarian catastrophe or merely helped create one of a different kind.

The looting of Colonel Qaddafi’s vast weapons arsenals during the intervention has fed the Syrian civil war, empowered terrorist and criminal groups from Nigeria to Sinai, and destabilized Mali, where Islamist militants stormed a Radisson hotel in November and killed 20 people.

A growing trade in humans has sent a quarter-million refugees north across the Mediterranean, with hundreds drowning en route. A civil war in Libya has left the country with two rival governments, cities in ruins and more than 4,000 dead.

Amid that fighting, the Islamic State has built its most important outpost on the Libyan shore, a redoubt to fall back upon as it is bombed in Syria and Iraq. With the Pentagon saying the Islamic State’s fast-growing force now numbers between 5,000 and 6,500 fighters, some of Mr. Obama’s top national security aides are now pressing for a second American military intervention in Libya.
