While the Fake News media have focused on Democrats winning back majority control of the US House of Representatives in the 2018 mid-term elections they ignored the fact that Republicans increased their strength in the US Senate by two seats in the same elections. Republicans now hold 53 Senate seats to just 45 Democrats and 2 Independents.
This is extremely important since the Senate does the critical job of confirming judges, including Supreme Court justices. The Republican-majority Senate recently confirmed president Trump’s 152nd judicial nominee!
And president Trump has had some major victories in the High Court since he took office, for instance on border wall funding and on the so-called “muslim travel ban”. The Daily Caller then reported recently:
The Supreme Court allowed the Trump administration Wednesday to enforce new immigration rules that would deny asylum to migrants who did not seek protected status in a country they passed through on their way to the southern border.
Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented from Wednesday’s decision.
The Border Patrol has intercepted approximately 350,000 asylum-seekers from the northern triangle countries of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras in 2019. The new rule would require migrants to seek asylum in Mexico or some other country through which they pass before seeking protected status in the U.S.
The rule includes exceptions for victims of human trafficking or migrants who were denied asylum in another country.
A coalition of migrant and civil rights groups challenged the new rules in federal court. U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar entered an injunction forbidding the government from enforcing the rules across the country in July. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) represents the plaintiffs.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals narrowed Tigar’s injunction, saying it could take effect within the 9th Circuit’s jurisdiction, but not beyond it. That meant that the third-country transit bar could be applied to migrants intercepted in New Mexico or Texas, but not Arizona and California. The 9th Circuit also said Tigar could reimpose a nationwide injunction if he made additional factual findings supporting such a move. Tigar did so and restored a nationwide injunction against the contested rule Monday.
This is another major judicial victory for the president and for immigration reform, and it shows how Trump is re-making America step by step, judge by judge, decision by decision.
Trump Shines in Special Election
Republicans lost 43 congressional seats in the 2018 mid-term elections. This was seen as a bad sign for president Trump but it was not necessarily unexpected since the party that wins the White House (Republicans in 2016) generally loses House seats – sometimes many of them – in the next mid-term election.
Yet in the 2010 mid-term election after Obama first won the White House in 2008 Democrats lost a whopping 63 US House seats along with six US Senate seats.
And in the first mid-term election in 1994 after Bill Clinton won the White House in 1992 Democrats lost 54 House seats and eight US Senate seats.
However a special North Carolina congressional election on September 10, 2019 was very positive for Trump. Republican Dan Bishop won a US House seat by two points (51% to 49%) after some Fake News media polls said he was going to lose by 13 points. And it was a Trump rally on the night before the election that put Bishop over the top. This once again demonstrates the power of Trump.
Nikitas3.com believes that the 2018 mid-term elections were strongly rigged against the president and against Republicans, including the phony Mueller investigation, but that things are changing with the president exonerated. And that Trump will be re-elected in 2020, along with many Republicans nationally.
‘Global Warming’ Ship Gets Stuck in Ice
James Delingpole at Breitbart News reported recently:
Yet another greenie expedition to the Arctic to raise awareness of ‘global warming’ has been (scuttled) by unexpected large quantities of ice. This brings to a total of six the number of Ship of Fools expeditions where weather reality has made a mockery of climate theory.
According to Maritime Bulletin:
Arctic tours ship MS MALMO with 16 passengers on board got stuck in ice on Sep 3 off Longyearbyen, Svalbard Archipelago, halfway between Norway and North Pole. The ship is on Arctic tour with Climate Change documentary film team, and tourists, concerned with Climate Change and melting Arctic ice.
All 16 Climate Change warriors were evacuated by helicopter in challenging conditions, all are safe. 7 crew remains on board, waiting for Coast Guard ship assistance.
The reporter, Erofey Schkvarkin clearly has a sense of humour. He adds:
Something is very wrong with Arctic ice, instead of melting as ordered by UN/IPCC, it captured the ship with Climate Change Warriors.
It appears the mainstream media has failed to get the memo. Here is a tweet from Reuters which appeared after the ship got stuck in ice. (h/t Stewgreen)
The town of Longyearbyen, Norway, is the northernmost — and the fastest-warming — town in the world, where glaciers melt, coffins rise from permafrost and avalanches sweep away houses.
Imagine that… SIX ‘global warming’ expeditions have been trapped in ice. And of course not a word about it in the Fake News media.
Naturally the Fools had to be rescued by gas-guzzling helicopters. Just imagine that “carbon footprint”! They should have been saved by solar-powered helicopters (that’s a joke. They don’t exist anyway).
Meanwhile CNN reported this in July from a ‘warming’ alarmist point of view:
Alaska’s summer of fire and no ice is smashing records.
With the Arctic warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet, America’s “Last Frontier” feels like the first in line to see, smell and feel the unsettling signs of a climate in crisis.
There are the smoky skies and dripping glaciers, dead salmon and hauled-out walrus but scientists also worry about the changes that are harder to see, from toxic algae blooms in the Bering Sea to insects from the Lower 48 bringing new diseases north.
The head shaking among longtime locals really began on the Fourth of July, when at 90 degrees, Anchorage was hotter than Key West.
A dome of hot, dry air over the southern part of the state refused to budge. When lightning struck the Kenai Peninsula, it was just the beginning of a wilderness inferno unlike any other in memory.
And on and on. But the ‘climate’ alarmists don’t want us to know that climate and weather can be very localized and temporary. For instance the claim that the entire Arctic region is “warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet” rings false with the Ship of Fools story which also happened in the Arctic but in another area far from Alaska.
They also don’t want us to know that long warm periods have happened naturally over many centuries, even in the Arctic. In the year 1000, long before the burning of oil, coal and natural gas which ‘greenies’ blame for “global warming”, a group of Vikings settled in Greenland, which extends well above the Arctic Circle.
The Vikings called it Greenland because it was green and warm. That was during the famous Medieval Warm Period which was 400 YEARS of really hot global climate, which Al Gore does not want you to know about.
That, in fact, is why the Vikings named it Greenland – because it was lush and green and the Vikings used the name to attract other Norwegians to their new home. They obviously would not have settled there if it was covered in ice as Greenland is today.
Meanwhile in its Alaska scare story CNN did not mention that the Winter of 2017-2018 was the coldest in 100 years in the Northeastern US. Or that the Northeast had the most miserable, rainy and cold Spring in decades in 2019, all the way into late June.
In other words the ‘climate’ alarmists selectively report stories of regional or localized warmth – often temporary warmth – to buttress their wild claims that the whole planet is heating up. While they ignore the Medieval Warm Period…
Update: Breitbart News reported:
… at the NAACP town hall, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said Miami has only a few years left on this planet.
Ocasio-Cortez said, “When it comes to climate change, what is not realistic is not responding … with a solution on the scale of the crisis—because what’s not realistic is Miami not existing in a few years. That’s not realistic. So we need to be realistic about the problem.”
What a crock… Al Gore said in June 2017 that “I went down to Miami and saw fish from the ocean swimming in the streets …”
Friends, this did happen one time after Hurricane Irma but not because of rising sea levels; it happened because of sea surges and flooding related to the hurricane. These surges push ocean water and fish onto the land, while floods are common all over the world in low-lying coastal cities and have been common for thousands of years.
Meanwhile Gore also claimed in his 2006 film ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ that Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa would be snow-free by 2016. But that has not happened.
By the way, Al Gore bought a $9 million beachfront house near Los Angeles in 2010. So he obviously is not too worried about rising sea levels. And Obama just bought a $15 million oceanfront home on Martha’s Vineyard. Ditto.
White Irish Singer Said She Hates White People
The Irish pop singer Sinead O’Connor is in the news again. She became famous in the 1990s for tearing up a photo of Pope John Paul II on live television.
This female has serious mental problems and now she has converted to islam. She said in 2018:
I’m terribly sorry. What I’m about to say is something so racist I never thought my soul could ever feel it. But truly I never wanna spend time with white people again (if that’s what non-muslims are called). Not for one moment, for any reason. They are disgusting.
It is obvious what is happening here: She said she hated white people even though she herself is white. This is common on the left. And in psychological terms this means that she is full of self-hatred.
In fact all people on the hard left are full of self-hatred. That is what binds them as liberals even if they are white, black, hispanic, Asian, etc.
We conservatives, on the other hand, like ourselves but we also realize how flawed we are. Yet we never hate ourselves for our flaws. We accept our flaws and seek to correct them rather than descending into madness.
We must also distinguish between liking ourselves and “loving” ourselves. We conservatives never “love” ourselves. That is a very dangerous thing. It is also called narcissism.
Yet people who hate themselves also can “love” themselves. It is part of a psychological phenomenon – they are both negative traits. In short, those who go to the extreme of hating themselves can also bounce to the other extreme and “love” themselves. This is also known as manic depression or bipolar disorder. One minute they feel awful, the next minute they are flying high.
The world’s worst mass murderers like Hitler, Stalin and Mao Tse Tung all were narcissists. We conservatives, on the other hand, are well-balanced people. We never go to these extremes… and we don’t kill millions of people.
Bill Clinton is the prime example of a narcissist who is in love with himself. He is obsessed with his public image and with public attention and with being in the spotlight. But this hides the very dark reality of Bill Clinton.
He is a very nefarious figure with deep self-hatred and tremendous anger. Ditto Hillary. There were stories from inside the White House of Bill Clinton as president lashing out in “purple rages” when he would go absolutely nuts.
That is why corruption comes so easy to the Clintons and to Democrats in general. Corruption flourishes among self-haters since they are so angry and have no conscience.
Think about the psychos in Hollywood. They spend a lot of time loving themselves for their fake image on the Big Screen. But Hollywood is rife with self-hatred. These actors know that their lives are based on fantasy, that they are just mannequins, and that they merely repeat what others have written for them.
That is why there is so much alcohol, drug addiction, suicide, anger, abuse, divorce and other bad things in Hollywood when we are supposed to believe that they are the happiest people in the world.
The same with these musicians – look at all of the drugs, alcohol, suicide, mental disorders, depression, etc. in the world of rock music. And to Sinead O’Connor’s credit she apologized for her statement about hating white people and said that she was “angry and unwell” and triggered “as a result of islamophobia”.
That’s interesting since islamophobia, or suspicion about muslims, exists in the West for good reason. After all of the terror attacks all over the world we should be very suspicious of muslims and keep a sharp eye on them. These radical muslims are crazy people and they prey on and attract weak people like Sinead O’Connor.
O’Connor explained during a recent TV appearance that reading the muslim holy book made her “realize I’m home, and that I’ve been a muslim all my life.”
A muslim all her life? Is she kidding? A good Catholic girl from Ireland? This could be expected since O’Connor said in a video in 2017 that she was suicidal, suffering from mental illness and living in a motel room in the “arse end of New Jersey”
“I’m all by myself and there’s absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist, the sweetest man on earth, who says I’m his hero, and that’s about the only thing keeping me alive at the moment and that’s kind of pathetic.”
Well, then, what could possibly possess her to become a muslim?
Answer: She had a nervous breakdown and was desperate for an answer for her problems. So she became a muslim since people who suffer nervous breakdowns often look outside their own world for quick and easy answers to their problems – like converting to islam.
It will be interesting to see how long O’Connor’s islamic conversion lasts. Nikitas3.com gives it 6 more months.
Wacko Culture is Spreading around the World
A very destructive culture has taken over the world. It has been around for thousands of years but today’s instant media culture seems to have energized it. The UK website The Sun reported:
American Airlines passengers were left stunned after noticing a miniature HORSE had joined their flight.
Evan Nowak said he noticed the animal, which had been brought onboard by a fellow traveller, while flying on a service from Chicago to Omaha.
It turns out the horse was one of those “therapy animals” that a passenger said she needed to keep herself feeling normal.
And friends, this is pure insanity. America has gone nuts. Or rather the left side of America has gone nuts since most of these lunatics are on the political left. Nikitas3.com would bet my last dollar that the lady with the horse hates president Trump and believes in ‘global warming’.
But the big question is: Why is she flying anyway?
She should not be flying. She should not be allowed on the flight with a horse. But then again, this is the lunatic culture that we are evolving into. We have to accommodate crazier and crazier people.
We can now expect every kind of screwball to show up at airports trying to get on airplanes with cows, sheep and every other type of animal.
Other examples of public lunacy:
*The general insanity over president Trump is the prime example of public craziness. There has never been anything like it before.
*A Swedish “climate” alarmist has suggested that we eat human meat from dead bodies so that we recycle ourselves and don’t contribute to ‘global warming’.
*The Green New Deal that is being promoted by Democrats includes a plan to renovate every single building in America with energy-efficient designs.
*We have males who sex-change into females and then compete in women’s sporting events, usually winning them.
*There was an ad campaign in Canada to fight cervical cancer that shows not a woman but a male-to-female sex changer who obviously has no cervix.
*Muslims claim over and over that their violent religion is a “religion of peace”.
This is all called “mainstreaming” insanity, i.e., once you put a crazy idea into the national discourse it becomes accepted in some quarters and then we are all expected to accept it over the long term.
This is how the left is undermining the whole world. And it is getting worse and worse.
Open Borders Activists Exposed
Conservative writer Michelle Malkin has produced a new book about the flood of illegal immigrants into the US. It is called Open Borders, Inc: Who’s Funding America’s Destruction?
Here is an excerpt:
The Illegal Alien Shelter Network Operating in Plain Sight from Central America, across Mexico, and into the U.S.
To fully appreciate the manufacturing of the 2018–2019 invasions of our southern border, you must first understand this: Pueblo Sin Fronteras is just one cog in the well-oiled, illegal-alien caravan-generating machine. Let’s start with what open-borders advocates themselves call their “Underground Railroad” of migrant safe houses that extend across Central America, through Mexico, and up and into the U.S… This sprawling network of aid stations has been in place for years, bolstered by global interests, left-wing activists, and religious institutions that advocate for illegal aliens…
In 2012, for example, the United Nations’ International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Mexico signed “cooperation agreements” with three migrant shelters along Mexico’s southern border to support their work assisting “irregulars” traveling through the Mexican states of Chiapas and Oaxaca on their way to the U.S. The IOM pact guaranteed supplies of medicine, hygiene products, construction materials, as well as therapy services and legal training at the previously mentioned Hermanos en el Camino shelter, along with the Catholic-run Hogar de la Misericordia shelter and Jesus el Buen Pastor del Pobre y el Migrante shelter. IOM extended similar aid to nine other migrant shelters in the northern and central parts of Mexico, from Chihuahua, Sonora, and Tamaulipas along the northern border to San Luis Potosi, Veracruz, and Tlaxcala in the center of the country…
On the southern border of Mexico in Chiapas, the city of Tapachula is the first entry point for Central Americans headed to the U.S. There, the Fray Matías de Córdova Human Rights Center provides “comprehensive support” to illegal alien travelers, including legal consultations, monitoring detention centers, and offering “online resources, art and social activities, job training, and basic social services to migrants.”…
Also in Tapachula, the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) opens its churches and pastoral centers to provide shelter, monetary aid, voluntary aid, and emergency assistance. Its team of lawyers, psychologists, social workers, and Jesuit clergy spread from Tapachula to Comalapa and Mexico City. JRS staff served as Sherpas for the 2018 caravan marchers and liaisons with the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNCHR)…
There’s no shortage of travel guides through the expansive network of Catholic volunteers. JRS is part of a binational coalition called the Kino Border Initiative (KBI) stationed in Nogales, Arizona, and Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, since 2009. Along with JRS, the partners who provide “direct humanitarian assistance and accompaniment” with migrants on the trespassing path are: the California Province of the Society of Jesus, the Missionary Sisters of the Eucharist, the Mexican Province of the Society of Jesus, the Diocese of Tucson and the Diocese of Nogales…
Médecins Sans Frontiéres (MSF)/Doctors Without Borders facilitates illegal immigration at our southern doorstep as well as across the Mediterranean Sea, as you’ll see in chapter two. Since 2012, the group boasts, its activists have been providing medical care and mental health care in Mexico to migrants and refugees from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador moving along the migratory route up through Mexico toward the U.S. MSF personnel are on the scene at migrant shelters and mobile clinics that parallel La Bestia railway lines. In addition, the organization opened a comprehensive health center in Mexico City in 2016 for caravan participants. Psychologists, medical doctors, and social workers are at the ready, along with staff who provide a full range of caravan concierge services: “guidance, information on the migrant route and legal rights,” plus “referrals to second and third level medical and mental health service providers.” MSF workers treat “dehydration, skin infections, fatigue, acute stress, anxiety and depression,” injuries from traveling on top of freight trains, and “injuries from violent incidents.” …
The Mexico City region hosts a multitude of casas de migrantes. The El Samaritano migrant house provides meals, baths, medical care, and phone services. It is conveniently located along the train tracks, and has become an inevitable magnet for narcotics and human trafficking. “We will be here until the last migrant passes through,” El Samaritano’s Sister Rosa Bogado vowed to a Miami Herald reporter. At Casa Mambré, a special LGBTQI unit houses transgender migrants who receive separate shelter and psychotherapy services. Casa Tochán (which means “our house” in Nahuatl) teaches guests how to do woodwork and sell artisan crafts. Families bunking at CAFEMIN (Casa de Acogida, Formación y Empoderamiento de la Mujer y Internacional y Nacional, or “House for Shelter, Training and Empowerment of International and National Women”) bake bread and receive asylum advice. Casa del Migrante de Saltillo is gated and has “stunning” mountain views and close proximity to the train tracks. It provides three free meals a day and sells additional snacks and calling cards. Canada, the Netherlands, and the European Union provide donations to the migrant shelter.
