More Democrat Treason

Another Democrat's actions bordering on treason. Either she is a clueless bleeding heart who has genuine concern for the undocumented, or she is a traitor. There is no in between. The following post is quite informative.

Dem lawmaker tips off illegals in MS-13 hotbed
'If there's a knock on the door and you don't know who it is, don't open the door' 
by Chelsea Schilling
A Democrat state lawmaker in Massachusetts has been caught tipping off illegals – many of whom are violent street gang members, child sex offenders and drug traffickers – to imminent Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids Tuesday, even telling criminal targets not to open their doors, to stay silent, to refuse to sign anything and to “fight back” with an attorney.
An Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman suggested to WND that the lawmaker is “doing a disservice to the community” and “endangering public safety” with her statements.

Massachusetts State Rep. Michelle DuBois, a Democrat representing the 10th Plymouth District, warned illegals about imminent federal immigration raids scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday in Brockton, a city just 25 miles outside of Boston. DuBois posted the warning on her Facebook page. She included a phone number illegal aliens may call if they’re caught in an immigration raid.
In January 2016, federal authorities arrested 56 members of MS-13, a highly organized and well-funded Central American gang known for its brutal acts of violence, in and around the Boston area. They were indicted on conspiracy charges and charges related to murder, conspiracy to commit murder and attempted murder. Some were also charged with other offenses, including drug trafficking and firearm violations. According to the indictment, several of the individuals were involved in the murders of at least five people since 2014 and the attempted murders of at least 14 people.
MS-13’s motto is “Mata, viola, controla” – kill, rape, control.
A 2016 U.S. Department of Justice press release stated: “Members of the MS-13 organization in Massachusetts sell cocaine, heroin, and marijuana, and commit robberies, in order to generate income to pay monthly dues to the incarcerated leadership of MS-13 in El Salvador. This money is allegedly used to pay for weapons, cell phones, shoes, food, and other supplies for MS-13 members in and out of jail in El Salvador.”
Despite the horrific illegal-alien gang violence in the area, DuBois felt compelled to warn lawbreakers of impending immigration raids.
“I got the following information from my friend in the Latin community: ‘I have a message for the immigrant community of Brockton. Please be careful on Wednesday 29. ICE will be in Brockton on that day,'” DuBois wrote on her Facebook page.
“If you are undocumented don’t go out on the street. If there is a knock on the door of your house and you don’t know who it is, don’t open the door. I ask you to be careful.”
DuBois also provided a chart so illegals will know “What to do if ICE comes to your door.”
Her initial post generated public outrage. Some of the comments WND found include the following:

The True Enemies of the American Worker

By Linda L Barton

Yesterday, I posted the responses I received from 2 of my DC Representatives about supporting President Trump and his agenda to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.  Now, I'd like to share with you what several of those who WE elected to serve our needs and put Americans FIRST are doing behind our backs.

I'm sure you've all heard of the problem with H-1B Visas?  How they are handed out to companies so they can fill positions with foreign workers.  Well, there's another less known program: the H-2B Visa.

The H-2B program is the blue-collar version of the H-1B visa outsourcing program, which allows roughly 650,000 lower-wage foreign university graduates take jobs young American college graduates are also competing for. The H-1B program gets a lot of bad publicity, but not much attention is paid to the H-2B program because it's not the higher paying jobs in jeopardy.
From Breitbart:  Jobs that UNEMPLOYED AMERICANS could have does not seem to be a priority to some elected Republican Representatives. Instead, they have joined Democrats in their quest to give priority to illegals.

The bipartisan request comes three months after the shocking November vote pressured GOP leaders to slash the H-2B visa program from a one-year high of 264,000 visas back down to the long-standing level of 66,000 visas.

The request to Department of Homeland Security John Kelly also comes as a claimed shortage of H-2B is prompted recruiters to find, hire, train and retain some of the millions of young underemployed men and women who could fill the many low-status seasonal jobs in landscaping, golf course maintenance, cleanup in restaurants, seafood processing, and hotel cleaning which are often allocated to H-2B contract-workers.

Recruitment consultants are helping employers hire alternative workers from American trade schools and from Puerto Rico. They are also warning employers to raise salaries and benefits for U.S. workers or else lose the workers to better-paying companies. “The first thing all employees want is a decent wage.  Do you pay a competitive wage? This is probably the first place to start,” one employer recently urged her fellow landscaping employers.

On March 6, North Carolina GOP Sen. Thom Tillis announced a bipartisan Senate effort to increase the supply of H-2B visas, saying;

Senators Thom Tillis (R-NC), Mark Warner (D-VA) and a bipartisan group of 29 other senators sent a letter to Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly, outlining concerns that the H-2B visa statutory cap will be reached soon. The Senators requested the Department of Homeland Security to conduct an audit to determine the number of unused visas during the first half of the fiscal year, and also requested that any unused visas be provided to eligible businesses that have been unable to secure an adequate number of workers due to the cap.

In 2015, after previously announcing that the statutory cap had been reached, [the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency] determined that more than 5,000 unused visas were available. Soon thereafter, the agency began accepting applications from businesses still hoping to hire workers through the program. With that in mind, we respectfully request that your office conducts an immediate audit of the number of unused visas from the first half of the fiscal year and project the likely usage rate for the second half of the fiscal year … As with prior practice, any unused visas should be provided to eligible businesses that have been unable to secure an adequate number of workers due to the cap.

The estimate of 5,000 unused visas is based on the number of approved-but-unused 2015 visas. According to the letter:

We understand that when USCIS deems the cap to be reached, it accounts for a certain number of withdrawals, denials, and revocations. It is very important, however, that as soon as it has information on the actual number of visas issued, USCIS immediately makes any unused visas available to seasonal businesses.
House Speaker Paul Ryan backed the expansion in December of 2015; however, after public and media criticism, Ryan withdrew his support in 2016, thus allowing the program to drop back down to 66,000 visas per year level.

Here is the list of those who support more foreign workers to take American jobs above Americans.

Senators Bill Cassidy (R-LA)
Ron Wyden (D-OR)
John Cornyn (R-TX)
Roy Blunt (R-MO)
Chris Coons (D-DE)
John Barrasso (R-WY)
Michael Bennet (D-CO)
Susan Collins (R-ME)
Tom Carper (D-DE)
Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
Patty Murray (D-WA)
Mike Enzi (R-WY)
Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)
Jerry Moran (R-KS)
Angus King (I-ME)
Tim Scott (R-SC)
Roger Wicker (R-MS)
Orrin Hatch (R-UT)
Ben Cardin (D-MD)
Richard Burr (R-NC)
Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)
James Lankford (R-OK)
Johnny Isakson (R-GA)
Cory Gardner (R-CO)
Pat Roberts (R-KS)
Mike Rounds (R-SD)
Thad Cochran (R-MS)
Dan Sullivan (R-AK)

Bob Casey (D-PA)

So, there you have it.  It looks like several of those we elected to put the welfare of the American Worker first had a much different agenda.  We need to help President Trump to Drain the Swamp by sending these fools packing in their next election.  We need to elect those who care about American jobs for American workers.

The Two Sides of DC

By Linda L Barton

I was scrolling down my Facebook newsfeed the other day and saw a post from a fellow Patriot suggesting that we all need to contact our DC Representatives and tell them to support President Trump in his battle to Make America Great Again.  I thought for a moment and decided it would be a good idea to tell my Congressman and Senator just how I felt and what I expected of them. I told them that this whole Russia is the boogyman thing is stupid and just a way to destroy the Trump Presidency.  I told them that I wanted them to work WITH President Trump and help to Make America Great Again. I told them to stand strong against the Progressive agenda and fulfill the promise made on election day.  I must say I'm glad that I did.  Let's see if my representatives are a freedom loving Patriot or a New World Order Elitist.

First, I sent an email to Congressman Babin of Southeast Texas.  I have to confess that I know Congressman Babin personally because he used to be my dentist and he's a good one too.  Here is the response from Congressman Babin:

Dear Mrs. Barton:

Thank you for contacting me to express your support for the actions and initiatives of President Trump. I continue to be greatly encouraged by both the words and deeds of the Trump Administration - you have my word that I will continue to work with the Administration to make America great again.
From the very first weeks of his Presidency, President Trump has made it clear that the safety and prosperity of the American people are his top priority - we both share these priorities. I came to Washington, DC two years ago for these exact same reasons - and I am glad that Republicans will finally have an ally in the White House to sign important legislation in to law. For example, I have introduced many different laws which have received broad support from the Congress, and now is the time to turn these common-sense provisions into law.
You will be pleased to know that I have introduced the Criminal Alien Deportation Act (H.R. 82) which would make sure that countries take back their criminal illegal aliens, or lose all foreign aid and travel visa privileges they receive from the U.S. I am also the author of the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act (H.R. 80), which would ensure the continued safety of the American people by codifying into law the executive actions taken by the Trump Administration to reassess refugees from dangerous parts of the world and subject refugees to extreme vetting.
Thank you again for contacting me. It is an honor to serve you in Congress.  For more information on my work in Congress, to connect on Facebook, to sign up to receive my E-newsletter, or to participate in telephone town hall meetings, please visit www.babin.house.gov. If I may be of service to you in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Brian Babin
Member of Congress

As you can see, Congressman Babin is a freedom loving Patriot, who is standing up for not only the voters of Southeast Texas but also President Trump.
Next, I sent a message to Senator Cornyn.  I have to say that I was rather surprised at the response I received since I've been led to believe he was a true Patriot.  Here is his response:

Dear Mrs. Barton:

Thank you for contacting me regarding the United States’ policy toward Russia. I appreciate having the benefit of your comments on this matter.

As you may know, the Obama Administration announced its misguided policy to “reset” U.S.-Russia relations in February 2009. From its inception, I had serious concerns regarding this now-defunct policy. Russian actions in recent years have proven that Russia must take responsibility and work to improve relations with the United States. Russia’s ongoing land grabs and violations of Ukrainian sovereignty, the 2010 revelation and arrest of members of a Russian spy ring inside the United States, Russia’s opposition to proposed U.S. missile defenses in Europe, as well as Russia’s resistance to broad sanctions against Iran, support for the Assad regime in Syria and the bombing of innocent civilians in Aleppo, expanded ties with North Korea, and the reported interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election have clearly demonstrated that the Russian government’s policies and pursuits contradict U.S. national security and geopolitical goals.

When the atrocities in Syria began in 2011, I started pressing the Obama Administration to end all U.S. government business dealings with Rosoboronexport—the Russian state-owned arms broker that facilitates the Russian Federation’s arms transfers to Syria and which the United States previously sanctioned in 2007 for its reported role in helping Iran with the development of its nuclear program. I offered Senate Amendment 3260 to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 (P.L. 112-239), which was signed into law on January 2, 2013, and prohibits U.S. government funding for any further contracts or business agreements with Rosoboronexport. Although the Obama Administration subsequently skirted this law and procured additional Mi-17s for FY2013, I am pleased that the Department of Defense heeded my call and ceased the procurement of all additional Mi-17s, including 14 that were planned for FY2014. On September 3, 2015, the U.S. Government sanctioned Rosoboronexport, barring all future U.S. military purchases with the company, and on June 22, 2016, the State Department announced Rosoboronexport had violated the Iran, North Korea, and Syria Nonproliferation Act (P. L. 109–353) and placed additional sanctions on the arms dealer.

Most recently, several agencies of the U.S. Intelligence Community jointly assessed that the Russian government orchestrated the hacking of the Democratic National Committee and other organizations of the Democratic Party in the year prior to the 2016 presidential election, releasing thousands of stolen emails. I support the bipartisan congressional probe of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, including investigating former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s interactions with the Russian ambassador. As a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, I am pleased this committee is conducting a robust, independent review of Russian interference in the election and will keep your comments in mind as the inquiry moves forward. Ensuring U.S. elections remain transparent, fair, and free of foreign influence is essential for the future of our democracy. Russian actions that seek to undermine American public confidence in the electoral process must have consequences. The United States must also increase its defensive cyber-security capabilities to protect against states and individuals who wish to do us harm, such as stealing intellectual property from U.S. businesses and compromising our national security.

Finally, the Russian government’s respect for the rule of law and human rights has further degraded in recent years. According to the Department of State, Russia has engaged in attacks and killings of journalists, arbitrary detention and politically motivated imprisonments, and infringement on freedoms of speech and expression. There is also evidence of widespread corruption throughout the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the Russian government. We cannot turn a blind eye to these deep-seated problems.

For this reason, I was proud to cosponsor the Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act of 2011, which was signed into law as part of the Russia and Moldova Jackson Vanik Repeal and Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act (P.L. 112-208) on December 14, 2012. This legislation directs the Secretary of State to impose sanctions against individuals responsible for extrajudicial killings, torture, and other human rights violations committed against individuals seeking to promote human rights in Russia or expose illegal activity and corruption by Russian Federation officials.

I appreciate having the opportunity to represent Texas in the United States Senate, and you may be certain that I will keep your views in mind as these matters are discussed. Thank you for taking the time to contact me.


United States Senator
As you can see Senator Cornyn must not have read my message, or he thinks me a damn fool. Apparently, he buys into the who Russia hacking lie and is siding with the Democraps.  It looks like Senator Cornyn is one of those who needs to be cleansed from DC. Here is what I sent to him after receiving his response:

Senator Cornyn,

Wow, this response did not address the subject I wrote to you about. Apparently, you felt the need to send me a canned message because it was the normal DC spin on the subject. I'm VERY disappointed because I do not feel the Russians are the boogyman like they are being painted. They had nothing to gain by seeing that President Trump was elected. They did, however, have much to gain to see that Hillary Clinton was. I guess this clearly shows me where you stand on the subject and I will remember at the next election.

Linda L Barton
Your Texas Voter
I doubt that I'll get another response from Senator Cornyn, but if I do, I'll post it for you.  So, there you have it.  When President Trump speaks of Draining the Swamp, he is speaking of ridding the American Voter of those who put their own desires above those who elected them.  Those who would side with the Democraps and then lie to our faces that they believe in the Conservative agenda.  

Like I've often said, Candidate Trump and now President Trump despite his faults, has ripped the curtain aside and exposed the corruption festering in Washington DC.  Now it's up to us to hold their feet to the fire and vote the swamp creatures out of office if need be.

Our President Speaks to All Americans

By Linda L Barton

Last night I watched a speech from our President that was clear, informative, and full of hope for our country.  Now, I'm not saying that's the opinion of those from the left, but for the average American, I'm sure they felt the same sense of pride that I did as President Trump stood in front of that large gathering and proved to the world why he is the one who wants to lead us as we fulfill this country's great potential. 

I had wondered how the Democraps would respond, and of course, they did not disappoint.  I had to laugh at the foolish women, all dressed in white, as a protest against President Trump because they seem to believe he has plans to harm women's rights.  Boy, they really need to pay closer attention to what he's been doing lately for women in business.

Once the speech began, I held my breath at what he would say.  I knew it would be good, but I was
pleasantly surprised at just how good it was.  Last night, I didn't see the Trump we all came to love
during the campaign.  No, last night, I saw a strong leader, a statesman, a President for all Americans. He stood on that stage, in front of a gathering of elected officials, of which half of them appeared to be hostile captives (yes, that's how the Democraps looked), and gave a speech that will go down in history as one of the greatest given by a President.  It was positive, patriotic, heartwarming, and a call to greatness.

However, it appeared the Democraps saw something entirely different.  A few times they stood and applauded, but for the most part, they sat on their hands and sulked.  I'm sure as the evening progressed, they saw their power over the American people slipping away and their dream for a Socialist America die right before their eyes.

Then our President paid honor to the wife of our slain warrior.  The loving message he had for that grieving wife brought tears to my eyes.  I've seen Presidents do that sort of thing before, but not with the depth of compassion I witnessed last night.  Our military, for the last 8 years, had a President that did not respect or care for their wellbeing.  Last night, this President proved that he not only respects those who serve this country but he also he appreciates their sacrifices.  It was one of the most beautiful and heartwarming moments I've ever seen in a Presidential speech.

Then once the speech concluded, I held my breath to see what the Fox News pundits had to say.  In the past, they had wasted no time to rip into what President Trump had to say; however, last night a miracle happened.  Even those who have spared no opportunity to go after our President in the past actually spoke positively about his speech.

Of course, Juan Williams tripped all over himself trying to find fault with what President Trump said and proved once again what a fool he is.  

Last night's speech reached a new high for Presidental speeches.  Whether you are a Republican, Democrat, or Independent, President Trump reached out to you in a way not seen in politics today.  He showed that he wants us to be a united country.  Polls taken after the speech showed an overwhelmingly positive response from the American people. Then this morning, the stock market broke the 21,000 mark, showing their comfort with his leadership.  Last night, President Trump showed the world that he IS our President.  And I for one, and thrilled to call him mine.
