~ The President recently gave the commencement address at a Coast Guard graduation where he told them that protecting this country from climate change is a “serious threat” to national security and inferred it would be a dereliction of duty not to act upon it. What a moral booster.
I guess lowering the priorities of the Coast Guard from drugs, WMDs, human trafficking and illegal immigration and bringing climate change to the top will make this country safer. I believe his message was to more than just these graduates, especially after laying off 30,000 in the Army. Sounds to me like a veiled threat, that if you don’t get on board his boat, expect your career in government service to run aground.
~ Liberal democrat leadership in sanctuary cities are having a hard time justifying their position on illegal immigration and will be out of a job soon if they don’t change their policy. They are placing the blame on Republicans and conservatives, who won’t allow them to increase funding to more flawed programs which do nothing but grow the bureaucracy. I expect Hillary to distance herself from her previous statements and preach a
If leadership is truly concerned with government’s responsibility to “protect and serve”, our borders and immigration control should be at the top of their agenda. The laws are in place for a reason, and now we are beginning to see why they should be enforced. More gun control laws are not the answer. Just ask Chicago, who can’t enforce the laws already in place.
I predict that the FBI will begin monitoring social media when performing background checks for gun purchases. When public photos of Dylann Roof portray a wannabe extremist who can still buy a gun, it sure makes the agency look incompetent. And looks are everything.
~ I watched the documentary The Life and Mind of Mark DeFriest recently, after watching Camp X-Ray the night before. Now I understand why people would rather die than go back to prison. If you’re not mentally ill before going to prison, there’s a good probability that some of those places would change that.
