Natural Disasters • Re: CA: Oroville dam collapse feared

February 13, 2017 Blondie 0

News reports have the auxiliary spillway collapsing and fearing the dam is next to go.

There is also a report that Gov. Jerry Brown has put in a call to DJT. It’s unknown if DJT’s voicemail picked up. Karma in all it’s glory.

Who do we hold accountable for this?
Oh yea we are in CA, NO ONE!

They’re saying it’s the spillway and not the dam itself. See Katrina 2005 for Official Canned Responses.

This is gonna make Katrina look like a kiddie wading pool if it all goes.

So I was thinking, President Trump has put a hold on immigration from certain countries in the middle east. If somebody from any of those countries wants to come to the USA they could simply go from their country to a country that isn’t banned from immigration to the USA and then from there go to the USA. For instance, lets say there’s somebody from Iraq, one of the countries that has an immigration hold on it, who wants to come to the USA. They could go to Saudi Arabia which does not have an immigration hold and from there go to the USA. So people could exploit that loophole by taking that extra step.

If you are an Iraqi, and say you’re lucky enough to get out alive and legally, you don’t just show up in another country. In your scenario, Saudi Arabia must issue you a visa to come to their country. Arriving in Saudi Arabia, they know you are Iraqi. To travel onto the US, legally, requires a visa issued before you set foot here.

Illegally, it’s another story. Phony docs may get you to Central America, bribing Customs along the way, you go North to Mexico & then into the US.

If you are an illegal and are caught, when questioned they will determine where you are from. Mannerisms, customs, language, slang, accents identify you.

A passport issued by your native country doesn’t allow you to leave, it allows you to come home! The “travel ban” mainly affected those had been in the US but were abroad and wanted to re-enter the US.

The law is on DJT’s side. The US can restrict immigration from any country it chooses. For as long as we choose to do so. We do this every year when the US announces their quotas. I did realize that yes, this is temporary ban.

That said, I listened to most of the arguments presented to the 9th Circuit Appeals Court. The justices tore up the sad sack attorneys. We will have a decision on the appeal shortly. Perhaps as early as Friday.

The hearing was about an hour. It’s out on ZH if anyone wants to listen.

Katrina, 9/11 and The Blackout of 2003 didn’t produce hoardes of urbanites heading for rural areas and yet all 3 impacted major metro cities.

Those having their rebellious roots in the civil unrest of the ’60s are dead. Or close to it. If you turned on & dropped out your life was cut short by LSD.

The 100,000 visas were not all refugee visa holders. Green cards aka “permanent resident cards” are neither permanent nor are you considered a citizen.

A Refugee visa is normally issued by the US State Dept in the country where you want to leave by our embassy there.

Think of a visa as a permit. You can come to the US LEGALLY and for A LIMITED TIME on a visa. You can get a tourist visa, a student visa to attend college, a migrant worker to pick crops and the hotly debated H1B visa. NONE are a guarantee of anything. It’s a permit given to you. They can be revoked early.

The student studying, the IT guy from New Dehli and the tourist from France can all have their visa revoked. None of these visa holders are “going home to be shot at”. There are thousands of people in the US who have overstayed their visa. Some for years.

This is an effort to begin to enforce laws already on the books. You can be passionate about rescuing the world but Americans seem to pick up their dinner check more often than most other nations.

Campus police are the university’s answer to Mall Ninja’s. They are undergunned and the Chief is usually overruled by the University President. They don’t want bad press.

Mommy & Daddy will roll up in their Beemer and bring their little Snowflakes home. Thus closing their checkbooks. Budding SJW’s hoping for a useless liberal arts degree have a lot of schools willing to take them.

Not very fun for a lot of folk. Your boss could put his hands on a woman and she best be quiet if she needed a job. Jobs were help wanted/women help wanted/men.

A man was free to slap around his wife. Women were labeled divorvee’s. No mention of a man being the divorcer. Child support enforcement was unheard of. A married woman couldn’t get her own credit until 1978.

Anita, all rights, to free rent, free health care, free food stamps, free transportation, free heat, free electricity, free cell phone, free attorney, free cloths, free everything and guess who’s paying for it.

Green card holders can get their free chit. The language on the card “lawful permanent resident” ain’t so. They are term cards of 3 yr considered temporary & easier to deport. And 10 yr, which gets renewed.

Refugee status, granted by our State Department, yes, you qualify for “assistance”.

January 28, 2017 Blondie 0

I read thru the newly imposed immigration ban and I was surprised to learn that it included those who already have a Green Card or visa.

While the protests at JFK are a “meh” for me, I came zcross this response to an article on the topic on ZH. While those of us who read ZH know the responses can run amok, this one caught my eye:

Trump is waiting for more updates on the Israeli intelligence he received warning of an imminent attack on the United States by a Saudi sponsored group of mercenaries. This immigration gate closure was planned but was rushed through after Trump found out that the terrorists were on the move. Unlike 9/11, Israel this time let the USA know of the attack plans, knowing full well that if Trump found out later that Israel failed to warn the USA, there would be hell to pay. The question for me is, was the Super Bowl the target, just like in the move “Black Sunday”.

In light of the fact that DJT has spoken with Bibi and it’s been real silent for my tastes, care to comment?

My PCP is cash only. Has been for 3 yrs.

He stopped taking my ins first, big national carrier because they were so slow to reimburse. Then he stopped taking all ins and went to cash only.

While you can still schedule an office visit, he began using video chat or phone calls for well established patients this month. Pay first online. Sinus infection, flu, UTI, $40 for 10 minute consult and the prescription is sent while you’re on the phone.

Not for the seriously ill but it works for me.

I agree, the “debt load” will increase and real soon. We face another debt ceiling in March which will have to be lifted once again. DJT will get nailed for having to do so.

He does plan on having a budget in place at the end of his 100 days. So far, he’s cutting fluff to the tune of $5-10B but it’s a start until he can really cut.

I’m not much of a social media person. I don’t FB or Tweet. But I finally get the Tweet strategy. It’s an end game where he controls all content. Short, decisive and to the point.

No endless news conferences where we are told by the talking heads what the POTUS will say before the conference and another hour spent by the MSM telling us what the POTUS just said. All brought to us by talking heads who earn $10M + a year and are beholding to the advertizers. Who the freak is worth that $ to read a teleprompter?

In a sentence DJT told the US that he spoke to Bill Ford. For Christ sake, even Bill Ford tweeted!

This is DJT speaking his mind. Often unedited but no MSM necessary. And if you want to hurt MSM, cut their profits.
