United States Refugee Vetting Process

President Donald Trump cited a need for extreme vetting of refugees seeking entrance to the United States when he signed an executive order Friday, Jan. 27, establishing a moratorium on the admission of refugees.

The Anti-Defamation League promised a relentless battle against the directive. American Jewish Committee criticized the blanket suspensions of visas and refugee admissions butbacked the insistence on thorough vetting, The Times of Israel reported.

“Resettlement is considered a durable solution for refugees who cannot return to their countries of origin or integrate into the current country that is hosting them,” the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants says, adding that it is a lifesaving option given to less than 0.5 percent of the world’s refugees.

Here’s the existing 13-step clearance process for people seeking refugee status in the United States, according to the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants:

  • Step 1 — In most cases the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees determines that a person qualifies as a refugee under international law. A refugee has fled from his or her home country and cannot return because of a well-founded fear of persecution based on religion, race, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particu­lar social group.
  • Step 2 — A refugee who meets one of the criteria for resettlement in the United States is referred by the UNHCR, a U.S. Embassy or a trained nongov­ernmental organization.
  • Step 3 — A resettlement support center contracted by the State Departmentcompiles the refugee’s personal data and background information.
  • Step 4 — Security checks are conducted, using the information collected by the resettlement support center. The State Department runs all refugees referred for resettlement through a Consular Lookout and Support System name check. Enhanced interagency security checks have been applied to all refugee applicants since 2010.
  • Step 5 — During those security checks, some refugees go through an additional security review called a security advisory opinion. These refugees require clearance from a number of U.S. law enforcement and intelligence agencies.
  • Step 6 — Refugees who meet the minimum age requirement have their finger­prints and photographs taken. The fingerprints are checked against various U.S. government databases, and the Department of Homeland Security reviews any matches.
  • Step 7 — An officer from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, part of the Department of Homeland Security, conducts a detailed, face-to-face interview with each applicant, usually in the country of asylum. Based on the information in the case file and on the interview, the officer determines whether the person qualifies as a refugee and is admissible under U.S. law.
  • Step 8 — If the applicant qualifies as a refugee and meets other admission criteria, the officer conditionally approves the application for resettlement and submits it to the State Department for final processing, pending clearance on the security checks in Steps 4, 5 and 6.
  • Step 9 — The International Organization for Migration or a physician designated by the U.S. Embassy conducts a medical screening of each approved applicant.
  • Step 10 — Every refugee is assigned to a voluntary agency in the United States, such as the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, which then places the refu­gee with a local partner agency or office for assistance upon arrival.
  • Step 11 — While awaiting final processing, refugees are offered cultural orienta­tion to prepare them for the journey to and initial resettlement in the United States.
  • Step 12 — For most refugees, a second interagency check is con­ducted for any new information. Refugees must clear this check to depart for the United States.
  • Step 13 — At one of five U.S. airports designated as ports of entry for refugee admissions, a Customs and Border Protection officer reviews the refugee documentation and conducts additional security checks to ensure that the person arriving is the refugees who was screened and approved for admission to the United States.

Mexicans Have Been a Good Friend to the USA

D-Source 01/30/17

So, this is who we want to insult by building a wall and this is who our President is trying to bully into paying for it.

The Mexicans have always been one of our best friends! The Mexican People are woven into our society and so is their culture. They are our second largest Trading Partner in the world and I’ve never met a Mexican I didn’t like (Truth).

If you have always been my friend; I will never change how I treat you, just for personal or financial gain. That is what I call being ‘Two Faced’. I feel like the US is being ‘Two Faced’ with Mexico and although I love my country; I am not proud of it, right now.

Executive Order Bans All People from 7 Nations

Story highlights

  • Many of the provisions in the order are consistent with Trump’s campaign pledges
  • Here’s a breakdown of what the executive order does

Washington (CNN)With just a few quick strokes of the pen, President Donald Trump on Friday banned — temporarily, for now — roughly 218 million people from entering the United States.

Trump barred citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US for at least the next 90 days by executive order, which a senior White House official said later Friday is likely just a first step toward establishing a broader ban.
Executive orders: Read more
  • All of Trump’s executive orders, memos and proclamations
  • Will the orders and actions stick?
  • It’s unclear how many more countries will be added to the list, but the official said the administration will be “very aggressive” as it weighs how many more countries to add to the list.
    Asked what criteria the administration will consider as it looks to expand the ban beyond the initial seven countries, the official said simply the “mandate is to keep America safe.”
    “Not going to take any risks,” the official added.
    That’s just one part of the controversial executive order Trump signed Friday dubbed: “Protecting the nation from foreign terrorist entry into the United States.” Many of the provisions in the order are consistent with Trump’s campaign pledges.
    Here’s a breakdown of what the executive order does.

    Bans citizens of 7 countries

    Trump banned citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US for at least the next 90 days.
    The executive order bars all people hailing from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen — or at least 218 million people, based on 2015 data published by the World Bank — from entering the United States. Those countries were named in a 2016 law concerning immigration visas as “countries of concern.”
    But the executive order also makes clear those seven countries are just a starting point for a likely broader ban.
    The order exempts diplomats and members of international organizations from the ban.

    Orders review of countries to be added to the ban

    The order also directs the secretary of Homeland Security to conduct a 30-day review to determine which countries do not provide “adequate information” for its citizens to be issued visas to enter the US.
    During the campaign, Trump talked about these countries as “terror-prone” countries. During the GOP primary campaign, he called for banning all Muslims from the US — a statement he never retracted — before shifting toward calling for banning individuals from countries with terrorist links, though he never specified the countries.

    Suspends the US refugee program

    Trump also stopped the admission of all refugees to the United States for four months.
    During that time, Trump’s secretary of state will review the application and screening process for refugees to be admitted to the US. The process is already highly rigorous and often takes successful refugee applicants at least two years to be admitted into the United States, but Trump has argued the program could still be exploited by terrorists.
    Trump also more than halved the number of refugees who could eventually be admitted in 2017 to 50,000 from the 110,000 cap established under former President Barack Obama.
    Trump also states in the order that refugees should be prioritized for entry on the basis of religious persecution, “provided that the religion of the individual is a minority religion.” That would open the door for Christian refugees from Muslim-majority countries to be accepted in the US while Muslims fleeing those countries would be excluded.

    Bans Syrian refugees

    “I hereby proclaim that the entry of nationals of Syria as refugees is detrimental to the interests of the United States and thus suspend any such entry,” Trump declared in Friday’s executive order.
    While Trump during his campaign called for banning Syrian refugees from the US — decrying their entry as a potential “Trojan horse” — he also called for establishing a safe zone in Syria where Syrians fleeing the war-ravaged country could live peacefully. Trump made no mention of that plan in Friday’s executive order, even though a draft of the executive order circulating in recent days called for beginning to plan for creating such zones.

    Calls for new immigration screening procedures

    The executive order also calls for the secretaries of state and homeland security, the director of national intelligence and the FBI director to develop and implement new immigration screening procedures.
    The ban and its impact:
  • 134 million banned from US
  • What to know about the restrictions
  • Trump during his campaign called for developing new “extreme vetting” screening procedures that would weed out potential terrorists from visa applicants by asking questions about their views on the US and ensuring that individuals support the US’s pluralistic values.
    “In order to protect Americans, the United States must ensure that those admitted to this country do not bear hostile attitudes toward it and its founding principles,” Trump states in the opening section of the executive order.
    “The United States cannot, and should not, admit those who do not support the Constitution, or those who would place violent ideologies over American law. In addition, the United States should not admit those who engage in acts of bigotry or hatred…or those who would oppress Americans of any race, gender, or sexual orientation.”
    Correction: The combined population of the seven countries named in the executive order — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — is roughly 218 million, according to 2015 data published by the World Bank. An earlier version of this story incorrectly used a lower figure.

    Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration and its immediate consequences, explained

    ANALYSIS

    Updated

    Media player: “Space” to play, “M” to mute, “left” and “right” to seek.

    VIDEO: Trump says America should have had ‘extreme vetting’ for many years (ABC News)

    Actions speak louder than words and after more than a year of inflammatory rhetoric, US President Donald Trump has used executive orders to prove to those who put him in office that he will act on his controversial promises — and there were immediate consequences.

    More than 134 million people are now at least temporarily banned from entering the country under his sweeping executive order signed at 4:42pm on Friday aimed at “Protecting the nation from foreign terrorist entry into the United States”.

    What was Trump’s order and who is affected?

    It bans travel from seven majority Muslim countries — Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Syria, Sudan, Libya and Yemen — for 90 days, suspends all refugee admissions for 120 days with “case-by-case” exceptions and suspends entry of Syrian refugees indefinitely.

    There has been confusion about permanent residents and green card holders due to conflicting advice sent to airlines by the White House. Officially it appears that they can board flights to the US but they may face extra screening or be detained on arrival.

    However, human rights groups say that green card holders trying to return from holidays, business or study are being stopped in foreign airports.

    White House officials briefing reporters have said green card holders who are stranded outside the US will need to meet with a consular officer and seek a case-by-case visa waiver to return home. The requirements to get a waiver remain unclear.

    Dual nationals born in any of the seven banned countries are also covered by the ban even if they hold passports from a US-allied country like Australia.

    What was the response?

    While Brooklyn district Federal Court Judge Ann Donnelly has blocked part of the order in response to a case brought by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), her ruling applies only to those who were already in transit, preventing the Government from deporting them.

    Ms Donnelly says the Government is “restrained from, in any manner and by any means, removing individuals” who are refugees or have valid visas due to risk of harm if they are deported.

    The order does not apply to those who are outside the United States who have not yet commenced their travel. It appears to also mean that those who are being detained at airports could be held until the legal case is complete.

    Another Federal District Court judge in Virginia also issued a seven-day order to prevent green card holders being held at Dulles International Airport, just outside Washington DC, from being removed from the country.

    Mr Trump has shrugged off the sense of chaos and confusion as refugee advocates scramble to respond and security personnel at US entry points grapple with new, hastily made rules.

    Why these countries?

    The New York Times reports that research by the University of North Carolina shows that no terrorist attack has been committed on US soil by anyone who has emigrated from any of the seven countries affected in the past 15 years.

    Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Afghanistan and Pakistan are not included in the ban despite documented terrorist activity and movement of militants from those countries, nor are Indonesia or Turkey where the Trump Organisation does business.

    “It’s not a Muslim ban, but we were totally prepared,” Mr Trump said at the White House.

    “It’s working out very nicely. You see it at the airports. You see it all over.”

    What happens now?

    When refugee entry eventually resumes the number will be capped at 50,000 over the year, halving the number allowed by the Obama administration. Religious minorities and Christians will be given preference.

    Further protests are planned for major airports across the country today after crowds turned out at JFK in New York, O’Hare in Chicago and elsewhere last night in support of detained passengers.

    An official from the Department of Homeland Security told the Washington Post that the order had created only minimal disruption with 109 people denied entry to the country and some turned around, 173 people blocked from boarding aircraft in foreign locations, and 81 green card waivers issued so far.

    President Elect Trumps Cabinet Pics, to date…

    Secretary of Defense

    Gen. James Mattis

    Retired Marine general

    NOMINATED

    A key figure in the Iraq war, Gen. James Mattis led troops and ultimately oversaw US Central Command. In Gen. James Mattis, Trump has a candidate who was held in high regard throughout the ranks of the Marine Corps during his 44 years of service. A seasoned combat commander, he led a task force into southern Afghanistan in 2001 and a Marine division at the time of the Iraq invasion in 2003. The retired four-star general, who was known as “Mad Dog,” was lauded for his leadership of Marines in the 2004 Battle of Falluja in Iraq — one of the bloodiest of the war. But he attracted controversy in 2005 when he said “it’s fun to shoot some people” while addressing service members in San Diego. He ultimately rose to oversee US Central Command. Mattis would require a waiver from Congress to be eligible for the position — servicemembers must usually wait seven years before being eligible. With Republicans in control on Capitol Hill and the general praise for the general’s career, a waiver would likely be a formality to obtain.

    Past controversy: “It’s fun to shoot some people,” he once said.

    Key conversation: He may have already changed Trump’s mind about waterboarding.

    Nickname: He got his nickname after the battle of Fallujah and kept it for his plain spoken nature.

    Chief of Staff

    Reince Priebus

    Republican National Committee chairman

    NAMED

    Reince Priebus has served as director of the Republican National Committee since 2011. Previously, he served as the committee’s general counsel. Priebus has the backing of establishment Republicans like House Speaker Paul Ryan, a fellow Wisconsinite, and Mitch McConnell, the Senate Majority Leader. He could help Trump negotiate with Congress. His appointment was reported November 13.

    Secretary of the Treasury

    Steven Mnuchin

    Co-chairman and CEO of Dune Capital Management

    NOMINATED

    Steven Mnuchin, who worked at Goldman Sachs for 17 years, joined the Trump campaign as finance chairman in May. These days Mnuchin is a Hollywood producer, putting out films including this past summer’s “Suicide Squad,” as well as “American Sniper” and “The Lego Movie.” His latest film, due in theaters this month, is called “Rules Don’t Apply.” Mnuchin has contributed to both Republican and Democratic candidates, including Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaigns and 2008 presidential run. He gave to Barack Obama’s Senate and presidential campaigns and to Charles Schumer, the new Democratic leader in the Senate. Mnuchin also worked with George Soros, the billionaire financier who has bankrolled liberal candidates and causes — and who was depicted as a villain in Trump’s last campaign ad. In 2009, during the real estate collapse, Mnuchin led a group that bought failed subprime lender IndyMac for pennies on the dollar.

    Attorney General

    Jeff Sessions

    US Senator from Alabama

    NOMINATED

    Sen. Jeff Sessions has represented Alabama in the US Senate since 1997. He was the first sitting senator to endorse Trump’s presidential campaign and was a main surrogate for him on the campaign trail. Sessions was nominated to be a federal judge earlier in his career, but could not get past Senate confirmation after allegations, which he denied, that he had made racist comments. He’s been a key opponent of comprehensive immigration reform on Capitol Hill. Trump offered Sessions the job of attorney general on November 18.

    Impact: How Jeff Sessions could change the Justice Department

    Secretary of Commerce

    Wilbur Ross

    Investor

    NOMINATED

    Wilbur Ross fits the mold of the type of administration officials he pledged to appoint during the campaign: businessmen with long resumes and billions in their bank accounts, sitting at the ready to negotiate for U.S. Interests around the world. Ross, 78, had been a vocal Trump supporter before the election, citing the need for a “more radical, new approach to government” that would help middle class and lower middle class Americans.

    Ross, chairman of WL Ross & Co., has made a career of resurrecting dying companies. Fittingly, some of Ross’s biggest hits have been in the same demoralized industries that Trump wants to revive: steel and coal. For instance, Ross’s firm scored huge returns last decade by cobbling together bankrupt steel makers including Bethlehem Steel to form International Steel Group. Ross then flipped the conglomerate in a $4.5 billion sale two years later.

    Collector: He’s worth an estimated $3 billion and has an impressive art collection worth a reported $150 million.

    Philosophy: Like Trump, who famously called himself the “king of debt,” Ross is not afraid to borrow money and used debt to finance his acquisitions, a trend known as leveraged buyouts.

    Priority: NAFTA re-negotiation could start day one

    Secretary of Labor

    Andrew Puzder

    CEO of CKE Restaurants

    NOMINATED

    The head of the Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s fast food restaurants, Andrew Puzder, 66, is a vocal critic of government regulation and opposes a $15 minimum wage, broader overtime pay and the Affordable Care Act. The Labor Department oversees America’s job market, regulates the workplace, and produces statistics like the unemployment rate that underpin economic policy. Puzder has been the CEO of CKE Restaurants since 2000. He’s credited with turning around the Hardee’s brand, but his company has been accused of labor violations and fielded complaints about sexist commercials. His nomination comes at a time when restaurants and other low-wage industries are feeling pressure to increase pay. Puzder would likely resist those pressures as Labor secretary.

    Secretary of Education

    Betsy DeVos

    Republican donor, school choice activist

    NOMINATED

    Betsy DeVos chairs the American Federation for Children, a group that promotes charter school education. She also served on the board of the Foundation for Excellence in Education, a group led by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush — one of Trump’s GOP primary opponents — which promoted both school choice and the Common Core education standards that Trump opposes.

    Secretary of Health and Human Services

    Tom Price

    Chairman, House Budget Committee

    NOMINATED

    One of Tom Price’s top priorities as health secretary would be to dismantle the sweeping health reform law that his two predecessors spent six years implementing. Price, an orthopedic surgeon who chairs the House Budget Committee, has long decried Obamacare as a threat to quality and affordable health care. Before entering politics, Price spent nearly 20 years in private practice as an orthopedic surgeon. He also served as medical director of the orthopedic clinic at Grady Memorial Hospital and as an assistant professor at Emory University’s School of Medicine. Price then spent four terms in the Georgia State Senate. In 2004, he was elected to the House of Representatives. He was named Budget Committee chair in 2015.

    Price has authored several iterations of an Obamacare replacement plan, which bears many similarities to Trump’s vision for health care reform and to House Speaker Paul Ryan’s overhaul proposal. Price’s most recent bill, the Empowering Patients First Act of 2015, calls for giving refundable tax credits to those who buy policies in the individual market. The credits would be adjusted by age, ranging from $1,200 for those age 18 to 35 to $3,000 for those age 50 and up.

    The plan would also offers more incentives for Americans to use Health Savings Accounts, including a one-time $1,000 tax credit for making contributions. It caps the tax exclusion on employer-sponsored plans at $20,000 for family coverage, and it allows insurers to sell coverage across state lines. Price’s bill also pushes states to create high-risk pools to insure those rejected by carriers on the individual market — usually those who have costly, pre-existing conditions.

    Also, it limits using federal funds to pay for abortions and protects health care providers who don’t want to perform abortions for religious reasons.

    National Security Advisor

    Michael Flynn

    Retired US Army Lieutenant General

    NAMED

    Michael Flynn served as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency from 2012-2014. He’s also served as assistant director of National Intelligence and served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Trump offered him the job of National Security Advisor November 17. An area of controversy for Flynn will be his complicated history at the Pentagon, particularly with classified information, and his work with foreigners after leaving the military.

    Past statement: Islamism is a “viscious cancer” that must be excised from the body of Muslims

    Controversies: Flynn’s handling of classified info has been investigated

    Communications Director

    Jason Miller

    RUMORED

    Luara Ingraham is a provocative voice in conservative circles, although she has also worked as an attorney and clerked for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. She was a Trump supporter and spoke at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

    Secretary of State

    Rex Tillerson

    Exxon CEO

    NOMINATED

    Trump is reportedly intrigued by the oil man’s view of the world. “He is much more than a business executive. He is a world class player. He is in charge of, I guess, the largest company in the world,” Trump told Fox News’ Chris Wallace of Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson. “And to me, a great advantage is that he knows many of the players. And he knows them well.” How well Tillerson knows some of the players could be an issue, even among Republicans, on Capitol Hill. “He does massive deals in Russia. He does massive deals — for the company, not for himself, for the company,” the Trump has said. As head of the world’s most valuable oil company, Tillerson could be a controversial pick due to concerns about climate change and his ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. In 2011, Exxon signed a deal with Russian oil giant Rosneft to provide access to lucrative oil resources in the Arctic. Rosneft’s largest shareholder is the Russian government. Putin attended the Exxon signing ceremony and later awarded Tillerson the country’s Order of Friendship.

    Secretary of Homeland Security

    Gen. John Kelly, retired

    Former Marine general

    NOMINATED

    The former head of U.S. Southern Command, retired Gen. John Kelly was previously responsible for managing security threats posed by criminal drug networks based in south and central America — an issue that Trump highlighted in his campaign. Kelly also oversaw operations at the controversial Guantanamo Bay detention facility in Cuba. The outspoken general clashed with the Obama administration’s push to close the facility, and told the Military Times in an interview that “there are no innocent men down there.”

    Kelly served over 40 years in the Marine Corps, moving steadily through the ranks since enlisting in 1970, and taking over as commander of U.S. Southern Command in 2012. He is also a Gold Star father, having lost his eldest son, Marine 1st Lt. Robert Kelly, in combat in Afghanistan in 2010.

    Kelly — who would likely play a significant role in the planning and implementation of Trump’s proposed border wall as the director of Homeland Security — has publicly discussed potential threats along the southern border of the U.S. In a March 2015 Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, Kelly talked about “the relative ease with which human smugglers moved tens of thousands of people to our nation’s doorstep” and cautioned that “these smuggling routes are a potential vulnerability to our homeland.”

    In the same testimony, Kelly warned against complacency toward the spread of human smugglers and drug traffickers in south and central America. “Unless confronted by an immediate, visible or uncomfortable crisis, our nation’s tendency is to take the security of the Western Hemisphere for granted. I believe this is a mistake,” Kelly told the panel.

    Military theme: Trump interviews generals

    Director of National Intelligence

    Admiral Mike Rogers

    Director, National Security Agency

    RUMORED

    As head of the NSA, Admiral Mike Rogers oversees one of the largest and most important pieces of the US national security infrastructure. His tenure there has not been without controversy. The Washington Post reported recently that both the current Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, and Defense Secretary Ash Carter recently recommended that President Obama replace Rogers as head of the NSA. Their issues include a desire to change the leadership structure of the NSA to put more in civilian hands, concerns specifically about his management style and issues of security at the NSA during his tenure. But moving a top military figure from heading the NSA to a civilian intelligence job is not without precedent. Michael Hayden went from the NSA to leadinng the CIA during the George W. Bush Administration.

    Mike Rogers

    CNN National Security Commentator

    RUMORED

    A congressman for 14 years, Rogers is also a former FBI agent. He was Chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. He was a part of Trump’s transition team, but left November 15. It’s not clear if leaving the transition team meant he was no longer in the running for a post.

    Pete Hoekstra

    Former Congressman

    RUMORED

    A former Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Hoekstra represented Michigan for 18 years on Capitol Hill. Since leaving office he has run unsuccessfully for both governor and senator.

    Lt. Gen. Joseph Kellogg, retired

    Reitired Lieutenant General, Defense contractor

    RUMORED

    Reitred Lt. General Joseph Kellogg has a distinguished military service record, including command of the 82nd Airborne Division. He retired from the military in 2003 and worked at a number of defense contractors before becoming an adviser to Donald Trump.

    Rudy Giuliani

    Former mayor of New York City

    OUT

    Rudy Giuliani served as mayor of New York City from 1994-2001 and has acted as an informal adviser to the Trump campaign.

    Secretary of Energy

    Rick Perry

    Former Governor of Texas

    NOMINATED

    Rick Perry was among the first 2016 Republicans to criticize Trump, but he dropped out of the race early and was also among the first former rivals to endorse him. As longest-serving governor of the oil state of Texas — Perry left office 2015 — he has a natural interest in the Department of Energy. But when he ran for president in 2012, it was one of the three departments Perry said he’d eliminate from the federal government. Actually, in a bit of irony, the Department of Energy was the department he forgot he’d want to eliminate during a fateful 2011 debate performance. “Oops,” he said at the mistake, which likely ended his presidential aspirations.

    Secretary of Housing and Urban Development

    Ben Carson

    Former presidential candidate, retired surgeon

    NOMINATED

    Ben Carson was a onetime rival turned campaign surrogate for Trump. The retired brain surgeon was also eyed as a potential Health and Education secretary. Like Trump, Carson has never had a government position before and he ran for president largely on his qualifications as a surgeon and his up-from-the-bootstraps life story. A onetime leader in the GOP primary polls, Carson clashed with Trump before ultimately endorsing him.

    Elaine Chao

    Former Labor Secretary

    NOMINATED

    She has a long history in Washington and Elaine Chao made history as the first woman of Asian descent in a presidential Cabinet when she became President George W. Bush’s labor secretary. She has also been CEO of the United Way and director of the Peace Corps. Chao, who comes from a wealthy shipping family, immigrated to the US from Taiwan at 8. Before her work in government, Chao worked at banks in San Francisco and New York. She is also one half of one of the most powerful couples in Washington; her husband is Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

    Ryan Zinke

    Montana Congressman

    NOMINATED

    Zinke, a 55-year-old ex-Navy SEAL commander and recipient of two Bronze Stars for combat missions in Iraq, was a Trump supporter. He’s also faced criticism from environmental and conservation groups since joining the House in 2015. In the House, Zinke was a member of the Armed Services and Natural Resources committees.  “President-elect Donald Trump and I had a very positive meeting where we discussed a wide range of Montana priorities,” Zinke told The Billings Gazette in a statement afterward. “We are both very hopeful for the future.” His selection is major political break for Democrats. Zinke was the top Republican prospect to challenge Minnesota Sen. Jon Tester in 2018 — and his removal from the race would substantially improve Democrats’ chances of holding the seat in the midterms.

    Forrest Lucas founded Lucas Oil and, like Vice President-elect Mike Pence, he hails from Indiana. In addition to being a former long-haul trucker, he’s an anti-animal rights activist — which is to say he founded a non-profit organization to combat the “radical” animal rights movement. The motto of Protect the Harvest is “keeping America free, fed and fun.”

    Senior advisers

    Stephen Bannon

    Donald Trump campaign CEO

    NAMED

    Stephen Bannon went on leave from his position as executive chairman of Breitbart News in August 2016 to helm Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. He’s a controversial figure in the media world since Breitbart has been a key part of the “alt-right” movement that trades in conspriacy theories like questioning Hillary Clinton’s health. They have also been major proponents of Trump’s border wall proposal. Groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League have argued he should not be included in the White House staff.

    Kellyanne Conway

    Donald Trump campaign manager

    RUMORED

    Kellyanne Conway founded The Polling Company in 1995, and has consulted on polling for major corporations and Republican politicians. She served as a senior adviser to New Gingrich’s 2012 presidential bid.

    David Bossie

    Donald Trump deputy campaign manager

    RUMORED

    David Bossie became the president and chairman of the conservative advocacy group Citizens United in 2000.

    Hope Hicks

    Donald Trump campaign press secretary

    RUMORED

    Hope Hicks served as the press secretary for the Trump campaign. Previously she worked at a PR firm and represented Ivanka Trump’s brands.

    Jared Kushner

    Real estate developer, newspaper owner, husband of Ivanka

    RUMORED

    Jared Kushner helped take charge of Trump’s presidential campaign and has been one of his top advisers. He’s also Trump’s son-in-law and has three children with his wife, Ivanka. Kushner is wealthy in his own right and runs his own family’s real estate development business. He also owns the New York Observer, a newspaper. Kushner’s father, Charles, a Democrat, served jailtime for making illegal campaign contributions. It was New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, now a Trump adviser, who prosecuted Kushner’s father. There are federal laws against the employment of family members, so it could be difficult for Kushner to serve in an official capacity.

    Corey Lewandowski

    Former Trump campaign manager

    RUMORED

    Trump’s first campaign manager and a true believer from the beginning of the Trump campaign, Lewandowski was fired by the campaign in June over differences about the direction of the campaign. He remained a loyal surrogate for Trump and his message, however, during appearances on CNN during the presidential campaign.

    Director, Office of Management and Budget (OMB)

    Mick Mulvaney

    Congressman from South Carolina

    NOMINATED

    Mulvaney, if confirmed by the Senate, would manage the White House’s annual proposed budget, program and policies. The director also sets up the federal government’s purchase of goods and services, called procurement, and oversees the performance review for government agencies and federal employees.

    Mulvaney called the appointment a “great honor.”

    “The Trump administration will restore budgetary and fiscal sanity back in Washington after eight years of an out-of-control, tax and spend financial agenda, and will work with Congress to create policies that will be friendly to American workers and businesses,” Mulvaney said in a statement. Mulvaney is a member of the House Financial Services Committee and is a co-founder of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, a group of conservative lawmakers who have clashed with party leadership.

    He didn’t initially support Trump for president — he first endorsed Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul during the primaries. But he endorsed Trump a few hours after House Speaker Paul Ryan did in June, saying at a candidates’ forum in Gaffney, South Carolina, that Trump could advance the Republican agenda. Mulvaney also told reporters in May that the one issue he wants Trump to detail his plans on is federal spending and debt.

    Administrator, Environmental Protection Agency

    Scott Pruitt

    Oklahoma attorney general

    NOMINATED

    Scott Pruitt is a fierce EPA critic — Pruitt had sued the agency over its regulations of power plants. Pruitt is a prominent denier of climate science, writing in the National Review in May that “the debate is far from settled” over whether human activity has contributed to the warming of the earth.

    CIA Director

    Mike Pompeo

    Congressman from Kansas

    NOMINATED

    A member of the Tea Party class of 2010, Pompeo also has establishment bona fides; he graduated from West Point and Harvard Law School. He formed an aerospace company, which he since sold. He served ont he special House committee tasked with investigating Hillary Clinton and the attacks on Benghazi. Trump offered Pompeo the position of CIA Director November 18.

    UN Ambassador

    Nikki Haley

    Governor of South Carolina

    NOMINATED

    She was sharply critical of Trump’s rhetoric during the GOP primary, but Nikki Haley is an important voice in the GOP. She’s one of the few women mentioned as a possible Trump cabinet official and the one of the few ethnic minorities — Haley is of Indian descent, but was born in South Carolina. She’s the first woman governor in South Carolina’s history, but could run into road blocks in this position since she has no foreign policy experience.

    Donald Trump is still more than a month away from assuming the Oval Office, but he’s already managed to inflame diplomatic tensions with the world’s second-greatest power.

    First, the president-elect broke with nearly four decades of precedent byaccepting a phone call from the president of Taiwan. Since 1979, a cornerstone of U.S.-Sino relations has been America’s acceptance of the “One China Policy” — a doctrine that prohibits the recognition of Taiwan as an independent state. By directly communicating with (the pro-independence) president of the island, Trump signaled his disrespect for that policy.

    Which is a big deal. Preventing Taiwan from achieving internationally recognized independence is one of the top priorities of Chinese foreign policy — one that its military is prepared to go to war over.

    Following Trump’s call, China decided to clarify that last point, by flying a nuclear-capable bomber over its disputed islands in the South China Sea — while also preparing to ship new surface-to-air missiles to those islands, according to U.S. officials who spoke with Fox News.

    Trump was not impressed by this display of force. In an interview with Fox News Sunday, the president-elect suggested that he felt no compulsion to honor the “One China” policy — unless China accedes to his demands on trade.

    “I fully understand the ‘One China’ policy,” Trump assured Fox. “But I don’t know why we have to be bound by a ‘One China’ policy unless we make a deal with China having to do with other things, including trade.”

    Of course, honoring the “One China” policy has allowed the United States to make countless “deals” with China, on issues of ranging from environmental policy to international sanctions.

    On Monday, China announced that future acts of cooperation would be jeopardized, should Trump continue down his current path.

    “China expresses serious concern on this subject,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters, including representatives of NBC News. “If the [One China policy] is compromised or interfered with, any sound and steady development in China-U.S. relations and cooperation in various fields is out of the question.”

    The Global Times, a Chinese state-run newspaper, delivered this message less diplomatically, deriding Trump’s behavior as very “childish and impulsive.”

    “China needs to prepare enough ammunition for a roller-coaster ride of the China-U.S. relations with Trump,” the paper wrote in an editorial. “There are many other people in the world that also need to buckle up the seat belts …China and other powers in the world are not going to be bullied.”

    (In March, the Global Times argued that Donald Trump success in the GOP primary testified to the hazards of democracy.)

    Trump spent much of his campaign rattling a saber in Beijing’s direction. “We can’t continue to allow China to rape our country,” he told his supporters in May. “That’s what they’re doing. It’s the greatest theft in the history of the world.”

    Softer versions of this sort of rhetoric are not uncommon in American political campaigns. While few candidates deploy analogies to sexual violence as freely — or enunciate the word China as violently — as the GOP standard-bearer did, some amount of chest-puffing toward the East is a perennial feature of our politics.

    And China generally makes the same assumption about this bellicosity that many liberals made about Donald Trump’s political career — after Election Day, it will all be over.

    But now Trump is president-elect. And China is shipping missiles to the disputed islands that many see as the (potential) cradle of the next world war. And the way Trump says China doesn’t seem so funny anymore.

    People React to What They Believe Trump Stands For…

    Acts of Hatred, Racism Come in Immediate Aftermath of Donald Trump’s Election

    Patch is documenting incidents of hatred and racism in the aftermath of the presidential election.


    Acts of Hatred, Racism Come in Immediate Aftermath of Donald Trump's Election

    After a long and contentious election in which Donald Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States, there has been a steady stream of demonstrations across the country with protesters unhappy with the results taking to the streets and breaking out in chants of “We reject the president-elect,” and “not my president.”

    The protests are not the only thing to occur in the immediate aftermath of the election. Incidents motivated by racism and hatred have come to the forefront of the national conversation, with an uptick of such incidents being reported across the country. The hateful acts have manifested in schools, college campuses, businesses and places of worship. The Southern Poverty Law Center is monitoring reports of racist harassment and intimidation and has so far recorded 201 such incidents across the country as of Nov. 11. The SPLC pulled the information from news reports, social media and direct submissions sent to them but noted that each incident could not be independently and immediately verified.

    “Often times, types of harassment overlapped and many incidents, though not all, involved direct references to the Trump campaign,” the SPLC stated.

    The Anti-Defamation League said following the election of Trump, there has been a sharp spike in reports of racist and anti-Semitic graffiti and vandalism, including the widespread use of swastikas and other Nazi imagery.

    Oren Segal, Director for the ADL’s center on extremism, told Patch that there are more of these incidents being reported and while it is too early to say if there is a spike particularly and it remains difficult to compare them to another time in history, he said the context is different and somewhat unique.

    He said it is not uncommon to see Swastikas or graffiti that is anti-Muslim or anti-gay, however, what is uncommon is seeing incidents linked to a particular campaign. He said the incidents seem to be more than just harassment and vandalism and seem to be, “loaded with the country’s anxiety.”

    In his first interview as president-elect on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” Trump was asked about the racist and hateful acts popping up in his name. Below is the exchange between Trump and CBS correspondent Lesley Stahl from the interview that aired Sunday night.

    Donald Trump: I am very surprised to hear that– I hate to hear that, I mean I hate to hear that–

    Lesley Stahl: But you do hear it?

    Donald Trump: I don’t hear it—I saw, I saw one or two instances…

    Lesley Stahl: On social media?

    Donald Trump: But I think it’s a very small amount. Again, I think it’s–

    Lesley Stahl: Do you want to say anything to those people?

    Donald Trump: I would say don’t do it, that’s terrible, ‘cause I’m gonna bring this country together.

    Lesley Stahl: They’re harassing Latinos, Muslims–

    Donald Trump: I am so saddened to hear that. And I say, “Stop it.” If it– if it helps. I will say this, and I will say right to the cameras: Stop it.

    Trump’s appointment of Stephen Bannon as White House strategist, the former executive of the news website Breitbart who has an alleged history of anti-Semitism and served as the Trump campaign’s chief executive, might have negated any of Trump’s efforts to call on Americans to stop the hateful acts.

    Jonathan Greenblatt, head of the ADL, called Bannon the ringleader of “a loose-knit group of white nationalists and unabashed anti-Semites” in an official ADL statement. The SPLC also issued a strongly worded statement titled “Bannon Must Go.

    Racial tensions in the country have been heightened lately, and acts of vandalism and violence had already begun to pop up during the general election, such as the vandalism of a black church in Mississippi where the words “Vote Trump” were scrawled on its side or the firebombing of a local GOP office in North Carolina where the words Nazi Republicans leave town or else,” were left on a nearby building. Non-white communities have always dealt with racist acts but there is something about the tone of the incidents that have taken place post-election that sets them apart.

    Segal, of the ADL, explained that the impact of these incidents is beyond local. While they always affect local communities, people may think of these instances of racism as a reflection of where America is headed.

    “Now it almost has the appearance of something that is broader so it creates anxiety,” he said.

    With a country that is still processing what is going on, Segal said there is leadership required from community leaders up to the highest offices in the nation to reject and condemn what is going on and to do so constantly.

    Patch has reported on several instances of such incidents and is compiling a list that will be constantly updated as we report on more acts motivated by racism and hatred. (Note: The list is organized based on the date Patch reported on the incident)

    Hillary Clinton Conspiracies

    Long before she let Benghazi happen, Hillary Clinton was the center of a swirl of inventive rumors about sex, drugs, and murder. For entertainment purposes only, we’ve rounded up some of the greatest (i.e., most scurrilous). We’ll add more as they inevitably bubble up in the run-up to the 2016 race.

    BENGHAZI ON THE BRAIN

    Concussiongate
    Rumor: Then-Secretary of State Clinton faked the flu and a concussion in December 2012 to avoid testifying to Congress about Benghazi.
    Rumormongers: 2016 presidential dark horse John Bolton and Fox News contributor Monica Crowley
    #TCLOT
    Rumor: As if a phony head injury wasn’t bad enough—Hillary faked a blood clot, an even more serious medical condition, to further delay her Benghazi testimony.
    Rumormonger: Glenn Beck, who added that “if she really had some weird thing in the hospital, then it should prohibit her from ever becoming president.”

    Ads by ZINC

    Brained by Bush’s brain
    Rumor: The clot was real, and Hillary suffered lingering brain damage that could render her unfit for office.
    Rumormonger: Fox News analyst Karl Rove, who backtracked the next day.

     

    THE CLINTON BODY COUNT

    Fostering doubts
    Rumor: Various theories hold that former Clinton White House chief of staff Vince Foster didn’t commit suicide in Virginia’s Fort Marcy Park. One posits that he was killed because he was having an affair with Hillary Clinton.
    Rumormongers: Former Rep. Dan Burton (R-Ind.) once shot a watermelon (or a pumpkin—it’s unclear) to prove that Foster was shot by someone else. Accuracy in Media founder Reed Irvine took out an ad in the New York Times to note that the FBI had failed to investigate “semen in Foster’s shorts, blond hair on his T-shirt and trousers and multicolored carpet fibers on all his clothing.” (Bonus: Anne Coulteronce joked, “If you attack the Clintons publicly, make sure all your friends know that you are not planning suicide.”)
    Ron Brown’s body
    Rumor: Commerce Secretary Ron Brown and 34 others were killed in a plane crash orchestrated by the Clintons to prevent him from spilling the beans to special investigators about selling seats on trade missions.
    Rumormonger: The Clinton Body Count, a website linking the first family to more than 90 deaths.
    Whitewater whitewash
    Rumor: After agreeing to cooperate with special investigator Ken Starr, Whitewater partner James McDougal died in prison—allegedly at the hands of Clinton henchmen. “Chalk up another body to Clinton,” as one Rush Limbaugh caller put it. An alternative theory: McDougal faked his death to avoid ratting out his benefactors.
    Rumormonger: The Clinton Body Count
    Kittycide
    Rumor: Former Clinton aide Kathleen Willey alleged that after her cat went missing, a suspicious-looking jogger told her to watch what she said. Then her new cat turned up dead.
    Rumormonger: Willey, in the the 2007 pseudo-documentary Hillary: The Movie(which triggered the Citizens United Supreme Court decision).

    Muslim Sisterhood

    Rumormonger: Poe again
    Get behind me, thetan
    Rumor: Why did the did the movie version of Primary Colors, in which John Travolta plays a thinly-veiled Bill Clinton, go so easy on the first couple? Maybe because President Clinton pressured the German government to extend religious protections to the Church of Scientology.

    Donald Trump… Womanizer for President!

    A Fundamental Misunderstanding in the Black Community

    D-Source 10/10/2016

    I am Black/African American. It appears that there is a fundamental disagreement between myself and many Black People on what the core problems within the Black Community are. Many view the problem as Racism and I view the core problems as our own Poor Morality, Misplaced Values and Poor Ethical Behavior, which gets me in a lot of trouble. However, I am the type to call it the way I see it. While there are certainly Systemic Racial problems in this nation that result in unequal justice, disproportionate poverty, poor schools, Racial Profiling, Mass Incarceration and other problems that create barriers for Black People to succeed; In my humble opinion, Racism is not the core of the majority of the misery Black People experience in the US.

    Our moral fabric in this nation, including the Black Community, is weak; therefore, everything we build upon it is weak and crumbling. And now, we need to fix that foundation. However, it is very difficult to fix a foundation while it has a building sitting on it. It will take a lot of work and everyone will have to take their share of the responsibility for the situations we find ourselves in, these days.

    The fundamental solution to the overwhelming majority of the misery that Black People in particular suffer, in my humble opinion, based on the years of research, studies, surveys and the documented success our organization, Unlimited Education, has had in turning whole communities around, I believe that Morals, Values and Ethics Education is the core problem and the core solution to most every social and economic challenge we face in the entire world, especially in the Black Community.

    In my view, the problem is as follows:

    A young man, whose morality is weak, decides to stick his ‘Pecker’ where ever he wants and a young girl, whose morality is also weak, decides to open her legs for him. Then, she becomes pregnant and he runs the opposite direction. She is forced to put her plans to go to College on hold and then makes the immoral decision to move a Drug Dealer into her home, because she needs financial help and because his Bad Boy persona is kind of hot. Now, her son is being mentored by a Drug Dealer. Her new boyfriend begins selling drugs out of the house and then goes to Prison for it. She loses her son, for a while, but manages to get him back.

    But, now, the son, who has spent his life being mentored and reared by a Drug Dealer and various temporary parents in the Foster Care System, grows up angry and takes on the morality of his parents, who have taught him that he is oppressed, the system is against him, that this is a racist society. So, this young man, who is now a teenager, sees no hope. He sees no point in going to college, getting a job or trying to work within the system, which he views as the enemy.

    So, he joins a gang and begins selling mind numbing drugs to the other black people in his community, perpetuating the madness in his own people. He sells to the pregnant girl, who morally, shouldn’t have opened her legs to some jerk and ends up birthing a crack baby; he sells to the guy with 6 kids, who, morally, he shouldn’t have created, because he is an unfit father. Now he becomes an addict and can’t pay his child support. And then, because someone was selling drugs on this young man’s corner, he makes the immoral decision to improve his street cred by killing his Black Brother and one stray bullet accidentally hits a young girl playing Hop Scotch, ending her life. So, her parents are beside themselves with grief and so is her angry older brother, who decides to get revenge. So now, this murdering teen goes to Prison, as his mother is financially devastated trying to pay an Attorney to keep him out of prison, and he becomes a daddy while in Prison, because he had sex with a crack head for a rock, who ends up pregnant.

    The guy he killed has kids who will grow up without a father, his girl friend, now has to make ends meet, alone. His brothers and sisters and parents are beside themselves with grief and his dad ends up turning to the bottle and becomes an alcoholic, out of pain and grief. He loses his job, there is a divorce and their home gets foreclosed on. The property values go down in the neighborhood because of the gang violence and drugs, so the wealth of the community takes a nose dive. Mrs. Johnson can’t refinance her house and fix the raggedy back porch and Mr. Jones wants to move, but can’t sell his house.

    White People, who want to help, see the solution as locking up all the Drug Dealers and ‘Gang Bangers’, which, on the surface, sounds perfectly reasonable. But the result is Racial Profiling and Mass Incarceration. The Mayor, Police Chief, the City Councilman and even the Senator for this Black Community should all be Black, but they are all White, because the Black People in this community have been taught their votes don’t count and the system is rigged and racist and against them, so they don’t participate in the political system. So, they get angry and burn down their neighborhood to protest the recent Police Brutality that resulted from the Police Department being run by people who don’t understand the community.

    Now, the elderly lady on the corner can’t get her prescriptions filled unless she can get all the way across town, because they burned down the Drug Store. Sally, with the three kids, use to work there and now she’s unemployed. She has to go on Welfare and get Food Stamps. The kid’s father is locked up.

    I could go on and on and on….

    This is the type of dysfunction that perpetuates the misery exponentially throughout the Black Community. The results are self genocide to the tune of 4 to 6,000 Black Men killed by Black Men, unproductivity, lost wages, severe property damage, mind damage, poverty, teen pregnancy, fatherless children, crime, violence, drugs, low property values and run down communities, poor education, grief, pain and suffering on a massive scale. All self perpetuated. And Racism is at the core of none of this.

    Now, one can argue that this all stems from the social and economic conditions that result from hundreds of years of social engineering, brainwashing and oppression and blah, blah, blah…. Yes, I get it. We have studied it all. But in the end, we have to take responsibility for our own bad behaviors, today. What was done to us in the past, is no excuse for the bad behaviors we engage in, today. And White People/Caucasians can’t fix it. We have to take responsibility and fix it ourselves. Their solution is to simply lock up the bad guys. But we see how that solution has worked. It has simply perpetuated more problems.

    So, we can continue to finger point at a systematically racist system; but the overwhelming majority of the misery Black People suffer, is of our own doing….

    Make America Great Again… Donald Trump

    D-Source 09/04/2016

    Am I the only one who is irritated by Trump’s Campaign Slogan: “Let’s Make America Great Again..”?

    Before reading this, I want to point out that I love this country! I am a loyal American who wouldn’t want to live in any other country in the world. There are, without a doubt, a lot of great things about this nation, today and we have a long way to go. But I look at how far we have come, as evidence of how far we can go. And my motto, adopted from my old Jr. High School Slogan is “Forward, Ever; Backward, never. However, Mr. Trump seems interested in taking us back….

    And as he courts Black People and Hispanic People, he should recognize that this slogan represents a return to a glorious time in American History for Caucasians, that was far from glorious for anyone else.

    What great American time does he speak of? The time the Native Americans were slaughtered and their land was systematically taken away from them? The time Black People were slaves or Serfs or the time we were being hung from random trees or the time we were being hosed down in the streets and dogs were being sicked on us and we were not allowed to vote or eat at certain places or maybe that time during the 60’s and 70’s when our kids attended segregated schools and we weren’t allowed to live where we wanted and were discriminated against in housing and financing and so on? Was it that great time when we rounded up all the Japanese Americans and put them in camps, the way the Nazi’s did the Jewish People?

    You see, when he says he wants America to return to one of these great times in American History; I don’t get excited; I cringe and get worried and a little angry, even. Especially when he follows up this slogan with talk about banning entire groups of people, based on their religion, all while touting the Constitution, which clearly supports Freedom of Religion. And he has talked about rounding up Hispanics and shipping them out like old Nazi Germany, but, now, wants us to forget he ever said it.

    So, he and his core supporters wonder why the polls show that his support among every group in America other than Older, Non-College Educated, White People, is in the single digits… We want to keep moving forward to a better kind of Greatness and are not interested in going back to that old kind of Greatness.

    Hello…?!

    What the Hell…?!

    D-Source 08/12/2016

     

    WHAT THE HELL?!

    I was using a public restroom and just as I began to piss, a voice from the next stall said, “Hi! How are you?” Embarrassed… I said, “I’m aight!!” The voice said, “So what are you up to?” I said, “Just doing the same as you, …I guess!” Then I hear, “Can I come over?” Annoyed… I said “Yoo, what the f*ck?!?!.” Then the voice said, “Listen, I will have to call you back, there’s an idiot in the next stall answering all my questions!”
