This is an "Irish Rebel" song but evidently the text along with it has been updated.
It looks like Ireland is having the same immigration problems that we are, maybe worse.
January 20, 2016, 7:21 pmDeporting aliens 1952
Here is number eight US Code 1182, inadmissible aliens.
This law was written in 1952. It was passed by a Democrat-controlled Congress, House and Senate, and signed by a Democrat president.
"Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by president. Whenever the president finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, the president may, by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate."
All of the pundits that are claiming that what Trump said is dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous, and/or unconstitutional, need to educate themselves. It is already the law of the land. And it was utilized by Jimmy Carter, no less, in 1979 to keep Iranians out of the United States, but he actually did more. He made all Iranian students already here check in, and then he deported a bunch. Seven thousand were found in violation of their visas, 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the United States, 1979.You probably won’t hear of this from the mainstream media, but those are the facts!
Maybe Trump isn’t that dumb after all?

January 11, 2016, 7:35 pmItalian legal system, divorce case
The mother jumped to her feet and protested to the judge that since she had brought the children into this world, she should retain custody of them.
The man also wanted custody of his children, so the judge asked for his side of the story. After a long moment of silence, the man rose from his chair and replied: "Your Honor, when I put a coin into a vending machine, and a Coke comes out, does the Coke belong to me or to the machine?"
DON'T LAUGH, HE WON!

December 11, 2015, 6:00 pmISIS, ISIL, Obama
ISIS or ISIL explanation.???????HERE is an explanation of the difference between the terms ISIS and ISIL. I have been suspicious of the termISIL to which the administration stubbornly clings.
ISIS = Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Iraq is to the east of Jordan (shaped like the hatchet) and Syria is to the north.ISIL = Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Iraq is still to the east of Jordan, and “the Levant” is a term that comes from “the rising (of the sun, i.e., to the east)” - and is basically the land along the Mediterranean - that includes Lebanon, Israel, and those countries along that region.By saying ISIL, you “negate” Israel as its own country and lump it in with the rest of the countries along the Mediterranean - and Israel sort of disappears (loses its sovereignty) and becomes part of “the Levant ” - which is therefore part of ISIL.If you've wondered, as I have, why all government agencies and especially Obama calls it ISIL and even spells it out every time it’s used, instead of ISIS as the rest of the world, here's the answer.Decoding Obama’s speech reveals some startling revelations. In one press conference after another, when referring to the Muslim terror super-group ISIS, United States President Barack Obama will use the term ISIL, instead of their former name ISIS, or current name Islamic State.Have you ever wondered about that? Here is the difference: What makes up the near exact center of the Muslim Levant? Israel. ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant. Now, to us Westerners we don't really make much of a distinction, do we? No, honestly from our perspective it’s all about the same. But how would a Muslim living in the Middle East view it? Just what is the Levant anyway? Let’s take a look.The geographical term LEVANT refers to a multi-nation region in the Middle East. It’s a land bridge between Turkey to the north and Egypt to the south. If you look on a map, however, in the near exact middle of the nations that comprise the Levant, guess what you see? It’s Israel.When Barack Obama refers over and over to the Islamic State as ISIL, he is sending a message to Muslims all over the Middle East that he personally does not recognize Israel as a sovereign nation, but as territory belonging to the Islamic State.
Now you know why Obama says that he has no plan, no goal, and no stated aim for dealing with ISIS. But he does have a plan, and it’s a really nasty, diabolical one. Obama’s plan is to drag his feet for as long as he can, doing only the bare minimum that Congress forces him to do. His plan is to buy ISIL as much time as possible to make as many gains as they can.
Listen as Obama, his press secretary, the spokesperson for the State Department, and his Joint Chiefs of Staff painstakingly spell out the letters I-S-I-L so there is no doubt in your mind. And it’s working.The Islamic State has garnered millions of dollars, a vast cache of weapons, and in their latest foray have captured Syrian fighter jets and now 12 commercial passenger planes. With each passing day that Obama fulfills his stated aim of doing nothing, the Islamic State grows by leaps and bounds.The ultimate goal, of course, has not changed and will never change. The ultimate goal is the destruction of Israel.
Now you know a little bit more about why Obama chooses his words so carefully.
December 5, 2015, 8:02 pmThe obamas and Christmas
President Obama Leaves Christ Out of Christmas
This year, the ABC network television special "A Charlie Brown Christmas" (which first aired on CBS) turns 50, and ABC had a party to celebrate. When it was Obama's turn to speak, he explained Christmas by saying -- and I quote -- "tiny trees just need a little love, and that on this holiday, we celebrate peace on earth and goodwill to all."
Good Grief! Even Christmas is about the environment? Is nothing sacred from politicking? Granted, conservatives sometimes go overboard when it comes to the "War on Christmas" -- with the non-scandal of Starbucks' Christmas cups as an egregious example. What Donald Trump was thinking by giving it legitimacy, no one knows. But this statement by Obama -- this really is a travesty.
Here is Obama's full statement, in case a patriotic American hoped that our President did not just remove Jesus Christ from the "true meaning of Christmas":
President Barack Obama: "Hi, everybody! We'll be brief because we know that adults all sound like "wa, wa, wa, wa, wa," especially here in Washington."
First Lady Michelle Obama: "Good Grief!"
Obama: "But, we want to wish a happy 50th Anniversary to one of our country's most beloved traditions, 'A Charlie Brown Christmas.'"
Michelle: "For half a century, people of all ages have gathered around the TV to watch Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, and the rest of the gang, teach us the true meaning of Christmas." (HERE IT COMES, FOLKS)
Obama: "They teach us that tiny trees just need a little love, and that on this holiday, we celebrate peace on earth and goodwill toward all."
Michelle: "Because, as Linus knows, that's what Christmas is all about."
The Charlie Brown Version
Oh really, Miss First Lady, Linus would beg to differ. Here he is, on the first Christmas Special, telling Charlie Brown what Christmas is all about:
Sure, Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about. Lights please!"
"And there were, in the same country, shepherds, abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night," Linus narrates, quoting from Luke 2, the old King James Version. "And lo, the Angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them, and they were sore afraid."
And the angel said unto them, fear not! For behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord! And this shall be a sign unto you -- ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger."
Linus continues, "And suddenly, there was with the angel, a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, peace, goodwill toward men.'"
Simply and humbly, Linus concludes, "That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown."
The True Meaning of Christmas
There it is. The true meaning of Christmas, according to the Christian tradition, is Jesus Christ. This remarkable person is the reason for the season -- the Son of Man, who is fully God and miraculously fully a human being, like you and me. Christians celebrate Christmas (the Mass of Christ) because we believe something truly incredible - that God became Man, and dwelt among us.
Next to the Resurrection, this is the most important doctrine in Christianity. It is the reason why Christmas hymns celebrate "Joy to the World - the Lord is come," and "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing - Glory to the Newborn King!" In a little stable in the backwater town of Bethlehem in the outskirts of the Roman Empire, a baby was born. That baby is the Creator of the universe, the one true King of all humanity, the Word by which God spoke all things into being.
In Christian doctrine, all men and women have sinned and deserve death and hell. God, by sending his Son Jesus Christ, and by allowing Him to die upon the cross, gave sinful human beings a way to atone for their sin, and live forever in heaven with Him. Only a perfect sacrifice could atone for sin, and so the redeemer had to be perfect, and He was.
Christmas for over 1,000 years has been about the miracle of Jesus Christ's birth. "Peace on Earth" and "Goodwill to Men," as Linus said, are made possible through the birth of Jesus. And even the Christmas tree is a celebration of Jesus, not nature.
Obama, by contrast, emphasized the tree, the peace, and goodwill, without one mention of God, Jesus, or the story that clearly inspired "A Charlie Brown Christmas." While the TV special quotes scripture in detail, the president mentions one tradition or two, and then his wife triumphantly declares "that's what Christmas is all about!"
No, Mister President, Christmas is not about green energy, your efforts at world peace, or the politically correct replacement of the Anglo-Saxon word "men" with the Norman word "all." The trees, the peace, and the goodwill have one source -- and that is none other than Jesus Christ. Obama says he's proud to be a Christian, but statements like this make him seem ashamed of the Gospel, and encourage Christians to feel ever more isolated in the political realm.
December 4, 2015, 11:30 amObama: Hamas sympathizer new ISIS czar
President Obama has appointed a foreign policy advisor known to be a friend of the terrorist group Hamas to be the administration's new czar in charge of countering ISIS. The appointee, Robert Malley, has a history of sympathizing with Islamists, which makes the appointment all the more appalling.

November 22, 2015, 12:23 amTolerance
Jiggs McDonald, NHL Hall of Fame broadcaster speaking in Ontario,says:
"I am truly perplexed that so many of my friends are against another mosque being built in Toronto. I think it should be the goal of every Canadian to be tolerant regardless of their religious beliefs.
Thus the mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote tolerance."
"That is why I also propose that two nightclubs be opened next door to the mosque; thereby promoting tolerance from within the mosque.
We could call one of the clubs, which would be gay, "The Turban Cowboy," and the other, a topless bar, would be called "You Mecca Me Hot."
"Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork, and adjacent to that an open-pit barbecue pork restaurant, called "Iraq of Ribs."
"Across the street there could be a lingerie store called "Victoria Keeps Nothing Secret," with sexy mannequins in the window modeling the goods.", and on the other side a liquor store called "Morehammered."
"All of this would encourage Muslims to demonstrate the tolerance they demand of us." Yes we should promote tolerance, and you can do your part by passing this on."
And if you are not laughing or smiling at this point...
It is either past your bedtime, or it's midnight at the oasis.

22 - What happens if you get scared half to death twice?
23 - My mechanic told me, "I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder."
24 - Why do psychics have to ask you for your name?
25 - If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
26 - A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.

A guy sits down at the bar, ordering drink after drink.
"Is everything okay, pal?" the bartender asks.
"My wife and I got into a fight and she announced she wasn't speaking to me for a month!"
Trying to put a positive spin on things, the bartender says, "Well, maybe that's kind of a good thing. You know, a little peace and quiet?"
"Yeah, I know. And today's the last day!"

I can't believe that you've been visiting prostitutes for sex," screamed the wife. "I'm really disappointed."
"You can hardly blame me," he answered. "It's not like I was getting any from you."
"Well that's your fault," she replied. "You never told me you were willing to pay for it"
November 4, 2015, 8:58 pm46 Senators willing to let the UN disarm you
"CALLS FOR MEMBER STATES TO SUPPORT WEAPONS COLLECTION and DISARMAMENT of all UN countries".
By a 53-46 vote - The U.S. Senate voted against the U.N. resolution. HOORAY.
This is that brief, glorious moment in history when everyone stands around...reloading.
Now, which 46 Senators voted to destroy us? Well, let their names become known ! See below . If you vote in one of the states listed with these 46 "legis..traitors"... vote against them.
In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.
The Statement of Purpose from the Senate Bill reads: "To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty." The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry, now get this, on all private guns and ammo.
Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.
Here are the 46 senators who voted to give your rights to the U.N.:
Folks, this needs to go viral. These Senators voted to let the UN take OUR guns. They need to lose their next election. We have been betrayed.
46 Senators Voted to Give your 2nd Amendment Constitutional Rights to the U.N.
Please, Send this to SOMEONE .....
