A Maniac Is Running Our Foreign Policy! (It’s Not Trump)

If only we were able to deport citizens, we could use Trump’s new policy of excluding those who are “hostile” toward our country to get rid of Judge James Robart.

Judge Robart’s veto of Trump’s travel ban notwithstanding, there is not the slightest question but that the president, in his sole discretion, can choose to admit or exclude any foreigners he likes, based on “the interests of the United States.”

The Clinton administration used the executive branch’s broad power over immigration to send a 6-year-old boy back to a communist dictatorship. The courts were completely powerless to stop him.

As explained by the federal appellate court that ruled on Elian Gonzalez’s asylum application: “It is the duty of the Congress and of the executive branch to exercise political will,” and “in no context is the executive branch entitled to more deference than in the context of foreign affairs,” which includes immigration.

The court acknowledged that Elian might well be subjected to “re-education,” “communist indoctrination” and “political manipulation.” (Then again, so would enrolling him at Sidwell Friends.) It didn’t matter! Sending little boys back to communist dictatorships was the policy of the Clinton administration.

The Obama administration’s immigration policy was to ensure that millions of poverty-stricken foreigners would come here and help turn our country into a Mexican version of Pakistan.

When Arizona merely tried to enforce the federal immigration laws being ignored by the Obama administration, the entire media erupted in rage at this incursion into the majestic power of the president over immigration. They said it was like living in Nazi Germany!

The most reviled section of the act, melodramatically called the “Papers Please” law, was upheld by the Supreme Court. But the other parts, allowing state officials to enforce federal immigration laws, were ruled unconstitutional. A president’s policy choice to ignore immigration laws supersedes a state’s right to enforce them.

The court conceded that hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens were arrested in Arizona each year, that they were responsible for “a disproportionate share of serious crime,” and that illegals constituted nearly 6 percent of Arizona’s population.

But Arizona was powerless to enforce laws on the books — if those laws happened to be about immigration. The president’s authority over immigration is absolute and exclusive, as part of his authority over foreign policy.

To review:

— When the president’s immigration policy is to promote international communism: The president wins.

— When the president’s immigration policy is to transform America into a different country: The president wins.

— But when the president’s immigration policy is to protect Americans: Some piss-ant judge announces that his authority exceeds that of the president.

This is exactly what I warned you about in “Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country Into a Third World Hellhole.” Nothing Trump does will be met with such massive resistance as his immigration policies.

The left used to attack America by spying for Stalin, aiding our enemies, murdering cops and blowing up buildings. But, then liberals realized, it’s so much more effective to just do away with America altogether!

Teddy Kennedy gave them their chance with the 1965 immigration act. Since then, we’ve been taking in more than a million immigrants a year, 90 percent from comically primitive cultures. They like the welfare, but have very little interest in adopting the rest of our culture.

In many parts of the country, you’re already not living in America. Just a few more years, and the transformation will be complete. There will be a North American landmass known as “the United States,” but it won’t be our country.

The only thing that stands between America and oblivion is a total immigration moratorium. We are well past the point of quick fixes — as Judge Robart’s delusional ruling proves.

The judiciary, both political parties, the media, Hollywood, corporate America and approximately 1 million lobbying groups are all working frantically to bring the hardest cases to our shores. Left-wing traitors, who used to honeymoon in Cuba and fight with peasant revolutionaries in Peru, toil away, late into the night, to ensure that genocidal Rwandans can move to America and immediately start collecting food stamps, Medicaid and Social Security.

No matter how clearly laws are written, government bureaucrats connive to import people from countries that a majority of Americans would not want to visit, much less become. Federal judges issue lunatic rulings to ensure that there will never be a pause in the transformation of America.

Congress could write laws requiring immigrants to pay taxes, learn English, forgo welfare and have good moral character. It could write laws giving the president authority to exclude aliens in the public interest.

Except it already has. Those laws were swept away by INS officials, federal judges and Democratic administrations — under ferocious pressure from America-hating, left-wing groups.

The country will not be safe until the following outfits are out of business:

The ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project; the National Immigration Forum; the National Immigration Law Center; the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild; the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights; the Office of Migration and Refugee Services; the American Immigration Law Foundation; the American Immigration Lawyers Association; the Border Information and Outreach Service; Atlas: DIY; the Catholic Legal Immigration Network; the Clearinghouse for Immigrant Education; the Farmworker Justice Fund; Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees; the Immigrant Legal Resource Center; the International Center for Migration, Ethnicity and Citizenship; the Lesbian and Gay Immigration Rights Task Force; the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service; the National Association for Bilingual Education; the National Clearinghouse on Agricultural Guest Worker Issues; the National Coalition for Dignity and Amnesty for Undocumented Immigrants; the National Coalition for Haitian Rights; the National Council of La Raza; and the National Farm Worker Ministry.

And that’s only a small fraction of the anti-American immigration groups assiduously dragging the Third World to our shores — while you were busy working.

Look at that list — look at Judge Robart’s ruling! — and ask yourself: Is it possible that anything short of a total immigration moratorium can save this country? Only when there is no immigration to bellyache about will these nuts be forced to think of a new way to destroy America.

  • Name

    Ann, you argue and write so beautifully! I agree 100% with you.

  • maxx

    Robart needs to be removed from office for incompetency. All immigration laws that exist today are under the presidents purview. He has every right, no responsibility to enforce them just as Obutthead refused to enforce them.

    • Jerryb53

      All the liberal federal and state judges need to be removed.

  • Wayne Peterkin

    And the ONLY solution is to confirm federal judges who are dedicated to upholding the law as written and intended by the authors as well as those who passed the law. As long as we have activist courts who substitute their personal agendas (based on nothing but an ideology) for the law, we will continue down this dark path to oblivion. The SCOTUS is the only thing that stands between us and destruction. which is why we need Antonin Scalia clones nominated and confirmed to our highest court, and Mr. Gorsuch appears to be an excellent start.

    • junkmailbin

      congress can dissolve a circuit court of appeals for failing in it mission. The 9 th could be removed as they have the highest rate of being over turned. If they were not a detriment to society , they would be upheld more.

      • MattS123

        We need to definitely get rid of the 9th Circuit. They’re horrible. Mostly a bunch of crackpots.

        • They represent the left coast, LA, SF, Portland and Seattle as the hubs of extreme on many fronts. So yes they need to be reigned in or disbanded.

      • Wayne Peterkin

        Yes they can and I have recommended that before. As far as being upheld, if they simply followed the law instead of ruling based on their personal (and liberal) agendas they would not be overturned as much.

    • That is part pf the solution but not all. The other part is congress and every political level of every state and county as well as municipality. That means we have to be vigilant more than simply complain about it all on the net and sit on the couch and get fatter each day !

  • Frank

    As usual Ann, you have swept aside the PC crap and laid out the bare, unpleasant truth. This invasion has been so largely covered up by the media and the “Washington establishment” that it is evident most Americans have not even the slightest clue as to what is happening to us. I am very concerned that President Trump is going to have his head handed to him on a platter if the Repubs in Congress don’t immediately step up to the plate and strongly support him. I doubt this will happen. And even if they did, the “left” is so deeply entrenched into the courts and bureaucracies it may well be too late to stop the destruction of America.

    • Yes a good synopsis of the insanity we are engulfed in and most of it was payed for with taxpayer money one way or another or union dues. I hate to say it but American’s have been very lazy, spoiled, apathetic and dumb ! And that is also part of the problem, but certainly not all.

      • Joan Davenport

        very well stated

    • Sunshine49

      IF you read a Bible then you know that Satan will eventually control the WHOLE world before Christ returns. God is not going to save ANY country — only people who are true to Him. From the way the liberals are fighting Trump I expect that day not to be too far away.

  • Richard L. Simoneau

    Stop the freebies America hands out to every tom, dick and harry that is here, planning to find a way here, legal or illegal and you’ll see this madness come to a quick halt, but before that can happen we must deal with the liberal, whining, America hating garbage that is here now, trying their best to give the farm away, they know the more they give the safer their numbers are, we are at a breaking point, get rid of the liberal nuts by cutting off the free handouts, period. Enforce the laws of the land, this goes for anyone in this country, no one should be exempt, including those that pass the laws, then think it is for everyone but them, get term limits in place so those career politicians know how the rest of us live, and stop the benefits that are voted for by these same politicians give themselves, that will start the ball rolling to roots out liberal zealots who want to destroy this nation.

  • El_Love

    all one has to do is look at France, Belgium and Germany to see why enforcing Trumps 7 nation ban is a good idea. I just wish it included all muslims and all muslim nations. They do not want to live in our culture – they want to bend and change our culture to fit their backwards society and culture and force us to live by their laws and rules. NO THANK YOU. Even liberals are getting sick of liberals. Conservatives really need to take a page and loudly, emphatically and staunchly boycott any company, program, product, etc that promotes liberal anti-American, unconstitutional, socialist, communist, fascist crap. Period.

    • Sunshine49

      Makes you wonder what all these useful idiot liberals think the US will be like once they’ve destroyed everything the US once stood for? Don’t they realize they are cutting off their nose to spite their face? Maybe they think they will be in the ruling class like in the old USSR. Of course with a few controlling the many, the “useless” idiots sitting on the government dole will be the first ones thrown under the bus!

  • Sad but True

    All this garbage and laws not being upheld proves how the democrats have ruined this country over the past Clinton and Obama years. The courts are polluted with crooked judges and legislators that make and change laws so they could push their progressive agendas. It is pitiful that these liberals show how unintelligent that they actually are.

    The Trump Administration inherited 1000 times worse than what Obama claims he got from Bush. Obama spent 8 years blaming Bush while he screwed up everything he touched. Twenty Trillion Dollars in debt and all the problems with ISIS is because of Obama and Hillary. But the democrats keep raising hell and damaging property and lying and hurting people but they have the nerve to criticize Trump.

    They are the problem and they have showed everyone just how much of the problem that they have actually done just since Nov:8. They should be deported or forced to have all these illegals live with them and they can pay to support these illegals!

    • Firewagon

      “….how the democrats have ruined this country….” Too true; however, EVERYONE, on any side of the equation, need only look in the mirror to recognize “conspirators” in that process! As Jefferson once said, “The Tree of Liberty Must Be Refreshed, From Time To Time, With Both The Blood Of Tyrants and Patriots, It Is Its Natural Manure!” We The People have allowed the decline of America. We The People have lifted the stigmatizing of ‘wrong doing,’ or laggardness, that formerly was a natural restriction on bad behavior. We The People have acquiesced to the “bit by bit” dismantling of American mores and morals. We The People vote, in inadequate numbers, ignorantly, and for “what does it ‘give’ me!” I would say “God Help America;” however, since He has been kicked to the curb in this country, I’m no longer sure how well He is listening….

      • jlbcalif

        First thing to do is Term Limits is a must. They only stand up to keep term limits off the table. They are not the least bit interested in “We the people” They need a real job instead of this bull shit they spew. TERM LIMITS Start with that !!!

  • OobieDoobieShaLaLa

    DOOM is a social accepted liberal policy. DOOM (MAKING AMERICA BORDERLESS) is constantly promoted by hate. This is a reality that is not even cleverly disguised, too many believe it is righteous and humane. Lets get at least 150 million of the worst that humanity can deliver and it will be bliss. The result will be DOOM a wonderful liberal policy of self and country hate. Let’s name it ‘THE ROME POLICY’.

  • MrBiggsEsq

    This article should be read on TV verbatim by Trump to America!
    (Here’s to conservative women!….)

  • Ed

    It is written in plain English, for all to read, that the president has the sole authority regarding immigration. All the strong BS generated by the media, and in particular WA state AG Ferguson, who sued claiming state economic hardship, students being denied entry, families torn apart, visitors being denied entry, immigrants being denied their right to come to America, the list goes on and it is, again, ALL BS. (It was only for 120 days). No judge and particularly Judge Robart can usurp the written, constitutional power of the president and the Liberals and their mouthpiece media are trying their best (worse) to negate that. None of them have read the Constitution apparently. Liberals selectively use it to further their causes or not as the application fits and the 9th U.S. Circuit Court is but another leftist shill. I particularly like Ann’s comment, “The Obama administration’s immigration policy was to ensure that millions of poverty-stricken foreigners would come here and help turn our country into a Mexican version of Pakistan.” Why does the Left try so hard to turn our country into a Third World one? Being flooded with immigrants who have no desire to become Americans and are only here for the benefits, financial and otherwise is going to reduce everybody’s standard of living and sink our nationalism and our economy. Right now there are more people not working than are, and those who are working support all of these immigrants and other leeches. How much longer can we last? Leftists are OK with our jobs and taxes they pay going out of the country and the government being in charge of everything; a socialist utopia, that they cannot see will come crashing down under its own weight. Then what? Blame George Bush? Liberals and Democrats are the worse enemy this country has because they attack it internally. Putting a Liberal in as president again would just hasten our demise. Look at what they are doing today and every day. Obstructionism at its best.

  • When my grandparents (on both my father’s and mother’s side of the family) came to this country, they came legally and had to pass through Ellis Island where they went through medical and mental competency examinations to make sure that they weren’t bringing in any diseases and weren’t going to overthrow our constitutional government. Also, they had to prove that they would not be a financial burden on the United States. If this was good enough for the immigrants back then, why isn’t it good enough for the immigrants today? Also, back in the early 1980’s, the majority of my ministry was to the refugees from Southeast Asia, mainly the “Boat People”, I also adopted 4 children from Vietnam. Before the refugees were allowed to immigrate here they had to spend sometime in refugee camps in Thailand or the Philippines, where they underwent extensive vetting and had to undergo medical and mental evaluation and they had to learn enough English to get by, and they had to have a sponsor. When they arrived, they were met at the airport by their sponsor. The sponsor had to have an apartment or house waiting for the refugee, with food, cooking utensils, and beds. The refugees were given public assistance which included food stamps, housing, and medicaid. In return they were given three to six months to learn English, find gainful employment, and they were required to repay the government for their airfare from the refugee camp to their destination in the U.S. They all, with few exceptions, met their obligations and became great citizens, assimilating into our society. Again, if this was good enough for them, why is it not good enough for for the Muslim immigrants today?

  • UStinman

    Love you Ann, you make the libtard talking heads, look like the Bolsheviks they are.
    In Bushes last term, I investigated how many invaders, were in our country.
    I went with what the Gov. said : “we are at 0 population growth”+ the last 3 census
    count. I found at least 50 million people here, that don’t belong. I voted for Trump
    for one reason, to remove the invaders that have colonized our country.
    As you know, there are places in the US, that don’t even resemble the country I grew
    up in. I’m hoping he keeps his word, these people have to understand is we are a
    society of LAWS, and Because Obama, suspended law in general that the days of wine an roses is over. With Jeff Sessions as AG, I hope he stops this anchor baby
    BS once and for all. But if Trump doesn’t send them packing, this will keep The US
    on a decline. and we will lose our identity as America. Semper Fi

  • But we continue to entertain the courts by filing suit or appeals. If the court has no jurisdiction just ignore them. the left ignores the law on a continuous basis but we play the game. Stop playing! The state filed suit against ObamaCare and by doing so legitimized them. The states should have simply told the liberal congress “you have no jurisdiction” and ignored them. Let them stand in front of a liberal judge by themselves, let him rule, then ignore them!

  • Excellent article and TRUE! Obozo broke every law there was…NOTHING from the totally controlled/contrived Liberal/Progressive media.. But some good news. A leading AOL story actually said that ‘Poll shows more people trust Trump than the media’.. A freudian slip by the media?? But that’s GOOD news. At least some people still have a brain to think ( and reason with )..

  • MattS123

    We need to hold that idiot Washington judge responsible for any terrorist attacks. If he thinks he has the right to stop the president it’s now his job to protect America.

  • I remember

    Stop immigration from all countries until the prospective is properly vetted. Immigrants from developed countries can be vetted almost instantly. Those that can’t be vetted won’t be admitted.

  • I remember

    Prospective immigrant.

  • Herb1949

    We also need to make it to where a person that is here, even legally, must learn the language and become a US citizen within 10 years of entering the country, or go home.

    I have worked jobs where people were here on a green card, for over 30 years. this is total nonsense.

  • petemobtv

    I SO agree. In fact, when I worked at the INS forty years ago, I could not believe the number of immigrants, legal and illegal, that we allowed in. Forty years ago!!! This country is a mess. We NEED a moratorium.

  • JBKonya104

    I’m ashamed of our Leadership here in the State of Washington. They could careless about the Legal American’s and our Safety. They see $’s and a Radical Liberal Agenda. They are so Partisan that they will not quit until they make things so miserable for everyone who isn’t like them and believe in their insane destructive plans/Agenda. Shame on them! They need to step down. Come on residents of Washington….demand they stop the insanity!

  • Jeff Schmidt

    Annie, you sure know how to raise my blood pressure! The five pillars of society – faith, family, education, public information/the press, and justice have been undermined for more than half a century by the dem-lib-social-communist mentality that we are now at the tipping point. Only a small per cent of the popular electorate kept us from total capitulation at the last election. Keep shining your light of truth on these vermin. They are so emboldened that they refuse to run into the shadows anymore. Perhaps the velvet hammers of love, prayer, righteousness and common sense can prevail.

  • Sunshine49

    I totally agree with what she is saying.

    “Congress could write laws requiring immigrants to pay taxes, learn English, forgo welfare and have good moral character. It could write laws giving the president authority to exclude aliens in the public interest.

    Except it already has. Those laws were swept away by INS officials, federal judges and Democratic administrations — under ferocious pressure from America-hating, left-wing groups.”

    I disagree that Obama had the right to usurp the Constitution when he stopped illegals from being deported and STOPPED protecting the American people. A California constitutional law professor wrote it was treason for Obama to side with foreigners over Americans and THEN to go to the UN Human Rights Committee AGAINST US states. I knew then that Obama was a Trojan Horse sent to destroy the US.

    ANYONE who sides against Trump hates America and that includes the RINOs in Congress. They are siding against the American people and they need to be removed from office — including these liberal judges who are trying to stop Trump from cleaning up the mess they’ve made of this country!

  • sunkgleska


  • justinwachin

    This is America. The Constitution doesn’t grant the rest of the world the right to come into our nation unchecked. Once President Trump cleans the swamp in D.C. he needs to focus on cleaning the swamp of all these judges for life who are removed from any sense of reality, any knowledge of the Constitution and any responsibility to the American people. Our nation faces a grave threat from rogue judges who have a spot on the bench for life. Maybe the time has come to make these elected positions rather than appointed positions.

  • Moki

    Well said, Ann. Thank you for enumerating the left’s blatant hypocrisy.
