LISTEN to this video – U.S. Citizens “DO NOT KNOW CIVICS”
How can our kids fight for America if they don’t have knowledge of how our Government and our Constitution works. If we don’t teach them the basic principles of Civics, America as a Nation will cease to exist.
Academy award winner Richard Dreyfuss believes that:
“We were responsible for the greatest revolution in the history of man’s civilization. We gave to 98% of the human race Freedoms for which they had been lashed for, lost fingers for, or had their heads chopped off for, and we gave it to them for free. And, we are the most revolutionary nation that has ever been and ever will be. We don’t know enough about our Constitution or our history to know why we should be proud of it.” Richard Dreyfuss
“THE RULER AND THE RULED ARE ONE THING – CIVICS TEACHES THE CITIZENS OF THE COUNTRY THAT THEY ARE THE FINAL AUTHORITY TO BE ANSWERED TO – IT TEACHES PRACTICAL POLITICAL POWER – NOT EMPTY WORDS BUT WITH THE FULL POWERS OF THE CONSTITUTION AND LEGAL AUTHORITIES THAT STEM FROM IT.”
The tools that are required to run this representative democracy:
civility, descent, debate, opposing views.
These tool control the WORST OF MAN’S NATURE and We are choosing to trash our birthright if excellence and intelligence, which is available to all, is turned away from.
Untaught, it can reek indescribable damage. Our Republican Democracy depends on this principle: That the people are mature enough emotionally to share space with those whom they disagree. That’s a high expectation that we have of our citizens. So high, in fact, that it’s the very first time in history it was ever asked: We say if we can get here you can rise by merit in your lifetime. No guarantee. But we give you the opportunity to rise and lift your station in life. To start something, fail and start something else. Say what you want, do what you want so long as your fist is not in my face to do it. WE GIVE YOU MOBILITY, FREEDOM and OPPORTUNITY, and we were the first body of people to offer that in 13,000 years of human history.
We were and still are a political miracle and our kids don’t know what the hell I’m talking about because we don’t teach it to them. Because the norm of human existence is so dark and so bloody and so unfair compared to the twinkle of light of intelligence we that are. WE offer fairness. We offer a legal system that said “no one regardless of station or office is above the law.”
The last phrase of the Preamble is a promise: “To secure the blessing of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.” What is posterity? it’s You and your kids. And that promise is deliberately unfulfilled right now and that is the reason for America’s decay in every sector of society. Civics untaught is values untaught. And that means that when we wake up in the morning, we don’t know who we are, we don’t why we are who we are and we don’t know the difference between Right and Wrong. If we don’t teach how our government works in a realistic fashion, who runs this country in 30 years? Because nature abhors a vacuum. It will be run by someone who will run it for their own interests and who will be assured that we don’t know enough to stop them.
Judge Jeanine Pirro met with Attorney General Jeff Sessions Inside the DOJ regarding Illegal Immigration, Sanctuary cities and his trip to the border. The many points they spoke about are detailed below:
The border is not open to anyone who just thinks they can cross it
AG has provided a new mechanism for dealing with illegal immigration and has added 125 new Immigration Judges
The cases being sent to the U. S. Attorneys, their Border cases are going to be prioritized
The Gang members coming in for a second time, their cases are going to be prioritized
Border Patrol Agents are going to be protected
This border is not open, if you come to America, come lawfully, don’t come unlawfully
There is a decline in attempts to enter in America. March was the lowest month in 17 years, it was 72% below Obama’s last month in office.
Jeanine: Obama stated in the summer of 2014 that there is a lot of poverty in Central America, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras. Gang members and their influx that are here, how do we find them, identify them and move them out?
Sessions: MS-13 has come back and “we are coming after you and other gangs too.” But the MS-13 is a particularly violent gang group. They will be convicted, serve their time and then we’ll deport them.
Jeanine: In order to get initiated in this MS-13 it’s murder incorporated, it’s what they do. If a gang a member of MS-13 who gets in illegally, is that grounds to prioritize their case and remove them?
Sessions: YES! Every person who comes in can expect to be deported. “Don’t Deport Me!” We need to restore lawfulness. If you want to come, wait your turn. But if someone commits a crime, while they are here legally or illegally, before permanent residents, they can and should be deported.
Jeanine: We need more judges, we need more courts!
Sessions: I have examined the hiring process and it takes way too long. We are going to cut that way down. We will have 75 new judges next year. We will add 50 new ones within the next few weeks at the border.
Jeanine: What are we going to do with those sanctuary cities, besides not giving them grant money?
Sessions: First and foremost, they (Cities) need to listen to their constituents. I do not believe the people of Lansing, Michigan, wanted an individual who came to the country illegally, who got convicted of an assault, or crime, or murder, or rape or drug deal AND is under the US Law, shall be removed from America. Why would any city would say NO you can’t remove these people, they get to stay in our communities? It makes no sense!
First, the voters of these cities, they need to hold their city councils and mayors to account. The police works for the mayor. Police Officers in sanctuary cities think this is crazy.
Jeanine: Some of them are appointed by the mayors. There has got to be a mechanism that the federal government has so that the local police can actual identify when an MS-13 gang member is getting out of jail for a crime that some mayor doesn’t’ think it’s important enough to notify ICE.
Sessions: Well Secretary Kelly, Secretary of Homeland Security is doing a great job! Our ICE officers are doing a great job! They just need a heads up. The detainer is that mechanism. You know from a prosecutor in New York. One jurisdiction honors the next door jurisdiction. When you finish your sentence of the bad guy, and if they got a case to hold them on, you hold them and turn them over to them. That is what the detainer allows to happen. What we are doing now is irrational, it makes no sense, it undermines the relationship with the U.S. Government and I think these cities need to be held to account.
Jeanine: They want to be humane about this. Like President Obama said “This is not who we are!”
Sessions: It is a remarkable thought, really. People come to America by permission, they have a visa. It says I can come here for a time. Or they break in the border illegally, or they are here at our sufferance. And if they commit a crime here, the law says: They SHALL be deported. No MAYBE, SHALL BE. And I don’t understand all this. We got to keep the pressure up. We going to look at these grant programs, if you are not cooperating with the Federal Government, you are going to lose grant money. We going to battle on them every step of the way. We are going to keep pressure on these cities and it’s just important for America and the people in these cities.
Just by listening to AG Sessions one comes to realize we finally have a man of conviction who follows U.S. Laws and the Constitution. It is extremely important to talk all these procedures out in details as he is doing and enforce them in order to protect the American population from foreign predators and homeland elected rouge officials.

Liberals State legislators are now attempting to turn Rockville, Maryland into a sanctuary city and to designate all of Maryland as a sanctuary state???
Republican Governor Larry Hogan has sense and is attached to reality and has vowed to veto any such measure, thank GOD!!!
President Trump’s concerns are obvious: There are 820,000 criminals that have been reported among the 11,000,000. million people living here illegally in our country. Finally, the American public gets it, but it took a long time, more than a decade, for them to understand what is being done to them, their children and to our communities.
A recent Harvard Harris poll shows that 80% of voters agree that local officials should have to refer illegal immigrants to federal authorities. Since President Trump’s inauguration, 25 states now have measures that would prohibit sanctuary policies and non-compliance with immigration detainers.
It is simple! Sanctuary cities need to obey federal laws. All Americans need to obey our laws. And President Trump’s law and order agenda is long overdue and much appreciated.
Michelle Malkin, senior editor of Conservative Review said on Fox & Friends: “First of all, we have to stop calling these places sanctuary cities. They are outlaw cities. These are safe spaces for criminality, and people are sick and tired of it. Ordinary Americans and taxpayers are being heard by President Donald Trump.”
Malkin said that new Attorney General Jeff Sessions is committed to enforcing the rule of law and sending a message to everyone of these police departments that they must not defy that rule of law. Malkin also said that liberals are trying to protect journalists from the Trump administration, “this is about trying to criminalize the dissent in America. It’s what the left is always about.”
The left is trying to invoke some kind of impenetrable shield around journalists who have long enjoyed living in a bubble, and Donald Trump more than any other politician in modern America has successfully pierced that bubble.
