File this under: What? The New Yorker has a new article out exploring the ties between Israel and Donald J.

Is The Trump Administration, Wittingly Or Unwittingly, Engaging In Human Trafficking?

hu·man traf·fick·ing the action or practice of illegally transporting people from one country or area to another, typically for the purposes of forced labor or sexual exploitation. You’ll notice that nowhere in that definition does the word profit appear, although that is normally the sole reason for the exercise in the first place. All it speaks of is illegally transporting people from one place to another for the purpose of exploitation. That is defined as human trafficking. Normally, the way it works is that human smugglers, called “coyotes,” pick up immigrants in Mexico and transport them over the border, turning them over to contacts on the US side of the border. The contacts then move the immigrants along, eventually dealing them out like cards in a poker hand to suffer their fate. Everybody gets paid. In Trump’s America, anybody who crosses the border from Mexico to the United States without proper paperwork, regardless of the reason, is entering the country illegally. And if they bring their minor children across with them, then they have just illegally transported someone across the border. The reason that they’re not charged with human trafficking is that they had no intention of exploiting them. But that’s where the Department of Homeland Security comes in. Their Customs and Border Patrol agents are forcibly removing these minor children from their parents care and custody, and detaining them. At some point, they are turned over to the Health and Human Services department, which hands them over to their Office of Refugee Resettlement department, which farms them out to agencies and contractors, whom if congressional testimony and documentation today are proven true, make Jeffrey Epstein look like a piker. To quote from the USA Today from a couple of hours ago; In the past four years, 4,556 children said they were sexually assaulted while in the care of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement, which takes custody of unaccompanied minors who cross the southern border alone and those who are separated from their families. Let’s g back to the definition above. You have parents illegally, a;though unknowingly transporting their children across the border, unaware of their possible future sexual exploitation. Then you have DHS willfully ripping those children away from their parents, and giving them to HHS, who we’ll say unwittingly, but with ab incredibly callous and indifferent attitude, are turning them over to sexual predators who are further abusing and traumatizing already traumatized children. You have children being illegally transported across the border for purposes of sexual exploitation. Intentionally or not, that fits the definition of human trafficking. Clearly, this cannot continue, nor can it be allowed to continue. The immediate impact of the revelations in today’s House hearing should be the immediate resignations of both HHS Secretary Alex Azar, as well as DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. If the name Alex Azar sounds familiar, it should. Azar is the soulless ghoul, who as US Attorney in Florida, crafted the insanely generous plea deal that allowed the above mentioned Jeffrey Epstein to skate scot free on serially abusing a minimum of dozens of under aged girls for years. Isn’t it funny how his name keeps coming up in conjunction with this particular activity? But just as importantly, what should be the mandatory next step in the House is to hold exhaustive hearings on the practices and policies […]

Why do we keep making things SO complicated?

We all know that life today is complicated. Hell, we even have a strategy for dealing with it, it’s called “dumbing shit down,” trying to make complicated things easier for simple slobs like me to understand. That being said, why do the Democrats have the nasty habit of taking really simple shit and making it so much more complicated? Even the mathematical formula is absurdly simple. One deranged loner +One AR-15 with high capacity magazines + One large crowd in a confined space = BREAKING NEWS! Not only is it absurdly simple, it’s also becoming tragically commonplace. So why do Democrats insist on making it so much more complicated than that? Yesterday on MTP Daily, full time host and part time idjit Chuck Todd began a discussion on guns by asking “But can you really call it domestic terror? What if the gunman had one specific target, but more than one person got hurt?” Oooooh, a probing, insightful question. Allow me to respond in kind, Chuckles. “What fucking difference does it make?!?” Domestic means here in the US, you know, like El Paso or Dayton, and terrorism basically means scaring the living shit out of everybody in sight. What possible difference does the specific target, or lack thereof possibly make? If you cut loose with a semi automatic weapon in a crowded place in the US, that’s domestic, and it’s pretty well guaranteed to scare the living shit out of everybody, which is terrorism. Domestic terrorism, get it? Full stop. And the Democratic leaders in congress aren’t faring much better right now. Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, as well as Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, are standing around in front of cameras and microphones, solemnly demanding that Moscow Mitch pull his head out of Oleg Deripaska’s ass, and skedaddle his troops back to Washington, to vote on that 90% approval rating universal background check bill that the House passed in February. And since I didn’t get an answer from Chuckles the Clown to my last question, I have a different question for you, Madame Speaker. Why are you standing around in front of microphones and cameras in San Francisco? And why are all of the other denizens of that monkey island you supervise tramping through theme parks with their kids, or burning to a crisp on beaches in Cabo San Lucas? Forget about Moscow Mitch, why aren’t you calling your kiddies back into a special session? There’s important shit to get done right now, and you’re the ones that need to do it! Right now, banning assault style weapons has a 70% approval rating with the public. Sweet Jesus, if you put ten people around the water cooler, you can’t get 7 of them to agree on which freakin’ restaurant to go to for lunch before the 4th ballot! And banning the sale of high capacity magazines is polling at well above 60%. What are you waiting for? Get cracking! Hit your speed dial, and tell everybody to be back in DC on Monday. Call legislative assistants, and tell them to have the shortest, most concise, constitution friendly bills possible written and ready to rock-and-roll by Monday. Get ’em into committee, marked up, debated, and out of committee, by a party line vote if necessary. Get ’em on the floor, debated, and passed by next Friday, again by a party line vote if necessary, although I […]

Ben Carson Just Turned Politics Into A Limbo Dance and It Can’t Get Any...

C-Span didn’t used to be confused with Comedy Central, but if Ben Carson keeps appearing, that will all change overnight. Carson made an appearance Tuesday before the House Oversight Committee, where Democratic Rep. Katie Porter (CA-45) literally had to explain terms and concepts to him that are a basic part of his job as HUD Secretary — but you wouldn’t know that to listen to his replies. “I would also like to ask you to get back to me, if you don’t mind, to explain the disparity in REO rates. Do you know what an REO is?” asked the congresswoman. “An Oreo…” replied Carson. “R, no not an Oreo. An R-E-O.” shot back Porter. “Real estate?” asked Carson. “What’s the O stand for?” said Porter. “E-organization?” asked Carson. Third grade level guessing games from a Cabinet secretary. I would be falling on the floor, if I wasn’t so pi**ed off. Now, listen to this short clip. Congresswoman Porter is to be commended for her decency and composure. If it was me, I would have blasted this moran into the next time zone, with my foot in his a$$. I asked @SecretaryCarson about REOs – a basic term related to foreclosure – at a hearing today. He thought I was referring to a chocolate sandwich cookie. No, really. pic.twitter.com/cYekJAkRag — Rep. Katie Porter (@RepKatiePorter) May 21, 2019 Now, you wouldn’t think that it could get worse. But you would be wrong. Carson treated all this as a joke. Here’s what he sent to Porter. OH, REO! Thanks, @RepKatiePorter. Enjoying a few post-hearing snacks. Sending some your way! pic.twitter.com/q4MMTBWVUI — Ben Carson (@SecretaryCarson) May 21, 2019 Ben Carson’s Oreo gaffe. Betsy DeVos and her imaginary grizzly bear. Rick Perry not knowing the name of the department he oversees. It’s time to cancel Who’s the Dumbest Cabinet Member? After 2.5 seasons it’s gone on for far too long. — Adam Best (@adamcbest) May 21, 2019 Of course, this is funny on a whole different level. Ben Carson doesn’t know what an Oreo is? Look in the mirror, Ben. Or, ask one of the pictures of Jesus over the mantle piece, preferably the one with you and he in your bathrobes, in a selfie. That’s primo. Or, go ask one of those educational institutions who gave you your fifty-five honorary degrees. Maybe one of them knows. Maxine Waters said about Carson, “He’s what my grandmother called ‘an educated fool.'” To say the least, to say the very least. I never thought I would live to see the day when politics is a limbo dance, where we wait to see which Trump appointee can go even lower still. But that’s exactly what it is. Yep, this is what winning looks like, in the Age of Trump. Here is a longer clip, 3:26, which underscores how utterly clueless Carson is on the fundamentals of housing. He should be impeached and replaced. This level of incompetence is totally unacceptable. The good news is that Porter will replace your faith in government, even as Carson shatters it. Another star of the freshman class.
