Trump expands immigration ban to include foreign specialized workers

THE NEW ORDER EXTENDS the original 60-day pause President Trump signed on April 22, and goes further by pausing new H-1B tech worker visas, H-2B seasonal worker visas, certain J work and education exchange visitor visas and L executive transfer visas. It will be in effect until the end of the year, but will not affect those who already have a visa.

Exemptions from the ban include some health care workers directly related to COVID-19, and agricultual guest-workers under H-2A. Other exemptions include those in the original green card order, including for members of the U.S. military.

Anti-German German Foreign Minister openly sides with US rioters against police

Heiko Maas, Germany's Social Democrat Foreign Minister, supports lawbreaking as long as it's done by Leftists. When it comes to what he calls the Far Right, he's for cracking down hard.


By Carolyn Yeager

THE LEFT-WING SOCIAL DEMOCRAT FOREIGN MINISTER in Germany, Heiko Maas, joins with left-wingers everywhere in criticising the behavior of law enforcement in the United States. Although the FRG (Federal Republic) is the least democratic state in Europe, with its notorious “Paragraph 130” that excludes anything related in any way to the National Socialist regime of 1933-45 from the general freedoms of speech and association guaranteed by German Basic law, Maas expressed concern for American democracy on Tuesday.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas on Tuesday said peaceful protests against police brutality in the United States were "more than legitimate" and called for press freedom for those covering the demonstrations.  (Deutsche Welle.com)

Ford Motor Company has good bloodlines, says Trump

U.S. President Donald Trump speaking at the Ford Motor Company plant in Michigan on Thursday, May 21, when he amusingly brought up the "good bloodlines" in the Ford family, with Chairman Bill Ford present.


by Carolyn Yeager

THIS IS THE MOST FUN STORY TO COME UP IN A LONG TIME. I've laughed and laughed. It might as well be a satire, although it isn't. On Thursday, President Donald Trump toured a Ford Motor Company plant in Michigan where he naturally gave a speech, introduced by Ford Chairman Bill Ford - a direct descendant of founder Henry Ford.

Reading from his prepared remarks - which praised the firm for teaming up with General Electric to produce ventilators and face shields for coronavirus medical workers - Trump read “The company, founded by a man named Henry Ford,” then ad-libbed "Good bloodlines, good bloodlines." Looking up, he flashed a charming smile as he said, "If you believe in that stuff, you've got good blood." Almost chuckling, but not quite.

Talking honestly about race in America

At a hearing of his Oversight Committee, Congressman Elijah Cummings screams at Kevin McAleenan, the acting secretary of Homeland Security, about conditions for detained migrants at the southern border, sharply criticizing the secretary’s contention that his department was doing its ″level best″ to manage the situation. Yet Cummings own majority black Baltimore, Maryland district has been exposed as having miles of abandoned, rat-infested row homes filled with trash. 


By Carolyn Yeager

THE SUBJECT OF RACE HAS COME UP VERY STRONGLY with the twitter feud between a black congressman and President Donald Trump. It's hard to talk honestly about race in this country, so I think it's great that Trump has come out and said these things. He's getting plenty of criticism even from some conservatives and Republicans … although the republicans in congress have stayed quiet and that's smart, they should.

President Trump gets heat for telling the truth again—this time about race hucksters

Al Sharpton posted this picture of Trump at a NAN Convention in 2006 with a chubbier version of himself, Jessie Jackson, left, and James Brown, right.


by Carolyn Yeager

NO ONE IN HIGH OFFICE HAS EVER TAKEN ON the racial question the way Donald Trump is doing now. As our president since January 2017, he has shown amazing courage in telling the truth about the political situation in this country and never backing down to the democrats, the media and the minorities.

Josh Hawley's anti-cosmopolitan speech at the National Conservatism Conference

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2019-07-22 23:53

Josh Hawley, US senator from Missouri, delivered the final address at the recent National Conservatism Conference in Washington DC. He's been criticized by Jews for over-using the term 'cosmopolitan' as a pejorative.


By Carolyn Yeager

THIS SPEECH, GIVEN A WEEK AGO TUESDAY, HAS ATTRACTED a lot of attention—especially in the Jewish Press. After reading about it there, I found the transcript and read it for myself. Now I needed to know more about his family background. Exactly who is Joshua David Hawley? Who were his parents? Turns out they aren't mentioned on his Wikipedia page or, I soon found out, on any other page online.

Guest Editorial - June: Summer and Civilization

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2019-06-22 17:39

A scene from the great opera by Richard Wagner set in 16th century Nuremberg which is the inspiration for an essay on the summer solstice, American liberty, and our presidential and congressional election of 2020.


By Jim Lowe

ON FRIDAY, JUNE 21, we entered the Summer of 2019. That leaves just one year until a tornado of roaring political rhetoric will surround us, completely inescapable if one so much as turns on a radio, television set, or Internet connection.

One would wisely pause this month to consider the depth of what's at stake during the coming year, and at the culmination of its frenzy on Nov. 3, 2020.

Political parties choose their 1916 nominees: Hughes and Wilson

Behind the Scenes at the Capital

The crushing defeat of Roosevelt at the Chicago convention is here looked upon as the most significant incident of the gathering. Never in American history has there been such a tragedy of fate. Roosevelt's whirlwind campaign was a marvelous feat of endurance and self-confidence. Wherever he went he belched war like the demon of the fable. The earth trembled under his tread and the welkins rang with his speeches at Detroit and St. Louis. For weeks he monopolized public attention, usurping the space daily alloted to war news on the first pages of all the papers. The country heard nothing but Roosevelt. Wm. J. Bryan in his palmiest days of a campaigner was a mere sideshow compared with the only P. T. Barnum of our day. It is estimated that he drew a small fortune out of his bank, staked it all on one card—and lost.

Lundeen's death paved the way for Minnesota to elect Internationalists

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2018-11-30 20:37

By Carolyn Yeager

WHEN MINNESOTA SENATOR ERNEST LUNDEEN WAS KILLED IN A PLANE CRASH over Virginia on August 31, 1940, the Republican governor was able, according to the rules, to appoint a fellow Republican to fill the senator's seat. Though Lundeen had begun his political career as a Republican, he had run for office as a Farmer-Labor "Democrat" since 1933.

Governor Harold Stassen (left) had been the keynote speaker at the 1940 Republican National Convention in June that nominated Wendell Willkie as it's presidential candidate. Stassen threw his support to Willkie and even became his official floor manager. The circumstances of the 1940 Republican convention were unusual, from beginning to end.

Willkie was a New York lawyer, corporate executive, Democrat activist and 'interventionist' who only switched to the Republican party in late 1939! He had not run in any primaries but positioned himself as an acceptable choice for a deadlocked convention. Front runners for the nomination, Ohio Sen. Robert Taft, Michigan Sen Arthur Vandenberg, and New York District Attorney Tom Dewey, were all non-interventionist, as was Senator Lundeen of Stassen's state of Minnesota. The east-coast Republicans tended to be the internationalists who wanted to take sides in the European conflicts, and that's who Stassen seemed to be representing.

Rush Limbaugh called Adolf Hitler a 'murderous antisemite' on his radio show today

Published by carolyn on Thu, 2018-10-04 20:02

Rush Limbaugh plays it safe with Jews by pretending they don't exist. But antisemites do! Antisemites from the past, that is, like Adolf Hitler. In this way Limbaugh is an enabler helping Jews be invisible.


 By Carolyn Yeager

I DON'T LISTEN TO RADIO SHOW HOST RUSH LIMBAUGH AT HOME; only when I am driving in my car. Only there can I bring in the San Antonio conservative station that carries his show between 11 am and 2 pm. I turned him off at about 12 noon today when I made my last stop; when I took off again to head home, he was mentioning Omaha Beach in reference to the failure of American voters to know what it was, let alone to know what it should mean to them (or to our country).
