About that immigration crackdown:

Democrats need to make it known that, much to our chagrin, Obama in 2012, deported more immigrants than Trump has ever done up to now. Democrats are being made out to want more ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. Answer that charge with facts by the numbers and show how under Trump more immigrants have crossed our southern border under Trump than in the last years of the Obama administration.

Next, bring undocumented immigration home. Talk about the millions who are here from all over the world who have overstayed their visas and who also are a burden on the social network that Trump talks about. Bring these people out from the shadows and make them understand that they too are a port of the category of Undocumented and therefore, "illegal" immigrants. This issue touches every community in the United States and includes a lot of undocumented Russians that no one is talking about. If ICE is going to enforce immigration laws, make them enforce them across the board. It will not go well for Trump because many of these undocumented immigrants live in suburbia and major upperclass neighborhoods where they stay with naturalized relatives in mini-mansions in large numbers. (See those huge homes with 5-7 autos parked in driveways and along tree studded streets. There are enclaves of these undocumented immigrants living in gated communities...some running organized crime syndicates for foreign Asian, Russian, Dutch and Irish mobs. (Check out your local crime reports if they dare record the facts.)

The immigration and undocumented situation is much more than meets the current eyes of the citizens. Trump administration forces the media to ignore everything except the Mexican border while our northern border goes virtually untouched.

Then, there is the situation with employers, like the Trumps, who hire undocumented workers and protect their immigration status. Is Trump going to talk about clamping down on these corrupt employers, including himself and his family?

Is he going to pledge to stop the chain migration of Asian and Russian women who come her pregnant to have their babies and then claim the child's citizenship to bring in the rest of their families? Where is the accounting for the unseen and unexamined they pose to our social safety net?

Bring it ALL on, I say. They need to put up or shut up! Do your job Democrats, educate the people and call out all the GOP who support the one percent's illegal immigration systems.

I hope the DNC has a plan for our candidates to respond to Trump's campaign speech tonight. Out

on the trail they must ALL be able to respond to facts regarding the lies and misinformation that Trump will be spewing tonight. Dems will need rapid responses to all the BS that you know is coming including facts that the number of immigrants crossing our southern border has increased under Trump...show the numbers. Deficit spending, increase in carbon emissions, tax cuts for the wealthy, lack of good paying jobs, latest job numbers, our individual and national credit debt, assault on our environment, corporate and farm welfare because of tariffs, and the new NAFTA being the same as the old NAFTA, the damage that pulling out of the TPP and our loss of influence in international markets, Iran situation being more dangerous, the ME on edge for greater hostilities, making friends with the worlds worse autocrats and making enemies of friends etc.

Joe has it right about the country being more hostile to each other. The increase in the number of mass shootings and deaths by guns, military homelessness, general homelessness, corruption of administration officials, collusion with Russia, Saudi Arabia, and how the dictators flatter Trump to get what they want, the need to protect the country from Trump's leaking to foreign enemies.

We need to come out strong in all the town hall meetings and challenge and fact check everything Trump will be saying tonight. AND we need to hold the media accountable for what they cover and how they cover it. Their 2016 coverage also contributed to the outcome.


It won't get us much if McConnell and Lindsey are still in the Senate when a Democratic President is elected.

Quick, someone ask Trump the meaning of fascism. nt

Read the entire article before jumping on the Pompeo bandwagon.


"Iran Foreign Minister Javad Zarif hit back at Pompeo, saying on Thursday the US allegations against Iran were part of "sabotage diplomacy" adopted by a so-called B Team, which he has said includes US National Security Adviser John Bolton, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed.

"That the US immediately jumped to make allegations against Iran—w/o a shred of factual or circumstantial evidence—only makes it abundantly clear that the #B_Team is moving to a #PlanB: Sabotage diplomacy—including by @AbeShinzo—and cover up its #EconomicTerrorism against Iran," Zarif tweeted.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had been visiting Iran in an attempt to ease tensions and was meeting with Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei when the reported attacks occurred."

Whoever our candidate will be needs to keep in the forefront that he or she will need a House and

Senate to work with. Therefore voters need to keep in mind that they should be voting for Democrats in both the House and Senate if we are to overcome the gridlock and nasty obstruction of the GOP.

We had one of the most brilliant and decent Presidents in our history. Mitch McConnell blew right thru the opportunities to make America really great and to move the prosperity down to the average working men and women of the country when he set out, BEFORE Obama had been sworn in, to obstruct everything the new President would attempt.

McConnell put himself and his party before the American people then and they are doing it still.

We need to drive that message home in the minds of voters who care.

So if a person was using an Iranian boat to remove an unexploded mine, does that mean Iran

was responsible for anything? What if the boat used had been an American boat? We would have said the US was trying to avoid further damage to the boat. And how many countries in the region have confiscated boats, weaponry etc from other countries?

I am still suspicious about these latest claims especially since Iran was at the time trying to seal a deal with the Japanese? It makes no sense.

Mitch is not only a pawn of Russia but also his Chinese in-laws yet the GOP is ignoring his

shady dealings with his wife's family. We definitely are in a trade war with China and this kind of stuff gets a pass by the GOP. WTF???

Just because they aren't "primaried"doesn't mean they will win. As long as there is a Dem challenger

we have a chance to beat them, even Lindsay Graham. As long as the Democrats put up a challenger in every Senate race, there is a chance that decent, democracy-loving, and patriotic voters will come out and vote against the unpatriotic, craven Trump suckers. But we must put up decent, fearless challengers in every case. The challengers must tell the voters the true story of what this Trump administration stands for, what it has done and what their GOP Senators have allowed to happen in plain sight. Play those videos snips of those GOP Senators saying one thing before 2016 and against Obama and Clinton and showing what they are saying now and how dishonest they are. Show how in bowing to their craven desire to win has made them equally as guilty as Trump in destroying our country, its values, its international reputation, and it endangerment of our future on many levels.

Lindsay Graham is the perfect example of the GOP selling out its soul and our country to support a man he cares about neither.

I say FIGHT everyone of them on their own turf. Plan more and more Town Halls in those blood red areas and put the onus on the voters to save the country in the face of the fascist regime now in place and supported by their souless Senators.

One thing Democrats could promise is to either CHANGE THE LAWS ON THE BOOK OR ENFORCE THEM.

So much is being ignored by this administration AND THE MEDIA.
