Univision's need to inject the specter of Donald Trump into every immigration story is getting out of hand, as we see from a recent report from a small town in Oaxaca, Mexico, that has closed its doors to Central American immigrants. But did Trump really have anything to do with this, or was something else at play?
New Book: Obama Had to Call Crooked Hillary and Get Her to Concede to Trump – Had a Hard Time Getting Out of Bed
Oh, to have been a fly on the wall!
Barack Obama had to call Hillary Clinton late on Election night and persuade her to concede to Donald Trump.
She knew she had “let the country down.”
The Daily Mail reported:
Hillary Clinton phoned Barack Obama on election night after conceding defeat and told him: ‘I’m sorry’.
The Democratic Presidential candidate stepped into an anteroom for the conversation to apologize for losing to Donald Trump in a conversation which has never previously been reported.
As she took the call Clinton knew she had ‘let her country down’ and that Obama’s legacy lay ‘shattered at Donald Trump’s feet’, a new book reveals.
Minutes earlier Clinton had called Trump and suppressed ‘the anger that touched every nerve in her body’ as she conceded.
She said: ‘Congratulations, Donald. ‘I’ll be supportive of the country’s success and that means your success as president.’
The drama of Clinton’s election in the Peninsula Hotel in Manhattan is detailed in Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Election Campaign.
Hillary was so shook up she sent John Podesta out to speak to her crying supporters.
This was after her staff spent the afternoon popping champagne bottles to celebrate.
Hillary reportedly had a hard time getting out of bed and leaving the house after her loss.
The President will sign an executive order Tuesday that will reshape the visa program as it pertains to high-skilled workers.
The H1-B visa program, which is used by tech companies to bring in high-skilled workers, will see a bit of an overhaul on Tuesday when the President issues a new executive order.
The President will sign the executive order at a manufacturing plant in Kenosha, Wisconsin, which reportedly will make it far more difficult for U.S. employers to “look overseas for workers to fill middle-income jobs”.
At a background briefing with reporters, senior administration officials described the current H1-B visa program as a lottery system that indiscriminately hands out work visas to contracting firms that recruit low-skilled, low-wage workers to replace working-class domestic laborers.
They say a new system is needed to ensure that the program returns to its original purpose of bringing in high-skilled, high-paid workers to fill more specialized or technical roles.
Though the order will not immediately amend the system, the Labor, Justice, Homeland Security, and State departments will take part in a review of the H1-B visa program and make recommendations that will hopefully be into place through either administrative or legislative means.

It should now be clear that our series discusses race relations in South Carolina and more specifically the Lowcountry where the colony was born. This was the region where the plantation culture was imported from Barbados by the English settlers who started the colony. By 1729 the process (which was begun in 1710) of splitting the vast Carolina colony into northern and southern halves was completed.
As we have discussed, the growth of rice cultivation in the Lowcountry spurred an influx of Negro slaves, mostly from the Caribbean in the beginning and later directly from the Dark Continent. This had a tremendous impact upon race relations. It drove the government to pass laws discouraging miscegenation, reserving most skilled trades for working class Whites and forbidding free Blacks from living in the colony. It also provoked leaders to impliment policies encouraging European immigration in order to establish a racial balance which would protect the Whites of the colony from the specter of Black revolt.
Dr. Peter Wood in his book Black Majority: Negroes in Colonial South Carolina from 1670 through the Stono Rebellion (1974) writes about the “deepening white anxiety” as the Black population grew. Wood explains:
As the ratio of white men to women became more balanced with time, one motive for sexual relations between freemen and slaves diminished, and as the size of the Negro population grew, the impetus among Europeans for white offspring increased. From the minority’s point of view, every baby born to European parents “improved” the dangerous racial imbalance, while each child with a white father and a black mother increased the ranks of the slaves and served as a reminder of the Europeans’ precarious social and genetic position.
Dr. Wood goes on to describe a duel system of racial control for the city and surrounding countryside. In Charleston, the Watchmen, a force of 21 men, kept slaves in order and enforced laws preventing them from entering the city on certain days or “to drink, quarrel, fight, curse and swear, and profane the Sabbath.” Outside the capital, the Patrol enforced laws restricting Negroes, making rounds throughout the parishes and going from plantation to plantation. In 1721 these two forces were merged into the militia. From that point on “the local control of slaves in South Carolina rested with military authorities, and from this date as well there began a transformation of the militia ‘from a vital defensive agency to one whose principal duty was the police supervision of slaves.'”
The author, who continually exposes his personal bias on the issue, describes South Carolina as a Spartan-like colony in the making. Even the wealthiest planters were required by law to serve in the militia and support it in maintaining Carolina’s emerging system of White supremacy:
Life within this expanding settlement became increasingly complex, and the tensions which separated slaves and freemen grew increasingly strong. Confronted with different and more acute anxieties about race relations than their forebears or their counterparts in mainland colonies farther north, white Carolinians addressed with increasing directness the question of the Negro’s “place.” The fact that this question had not yet become a tradition, the fact that the answer had not yet been entirely foreordained, made the issue all the more vexing and the need for direct answers all the more intense. The net result was a pattern of controls intended to define with increasing clarity and bluntness the social, economic, and even physical “place” of the black Carolinian.
Of course, the settlers did not think of their African slaves as fellow Englishmen or Carolinians. They were not citizens. They had no natural right to liberty. They were slaves from a primitive, foreign culture who were employed to fill a labor shortage and because their racial traits made them fit for work in the rice fields of the Lowcountry. And due to their numbers they had to be tightly controlled, as on Barbados. Under the direction of Carolinians, their service helped to make the colony in which they lived an extremely prosperous society.
NOTE: I hope OD readers are enjoying this series. I have learned quite a lot preparing for it and have future posts planned from different sources. I realize that Dr. Wood is obviously biased and anti-White. He presents White behavior in the harshest terms and is clearly sympathetic to the Africans. That said, his focus on the methods White people used to control Negroes in Carolina is enlightening. That system changed considerably over time and it is fascinating how those changes took place.
A West Virginia junior high school art teacher who makes clear to her students her anti-President Donald Trump views in class-time discussions is getting heat for being photographed wearing a profane anti-Trump message on a jacket in class.
Cheryl Judy, who teaches at Sherman Junior High School in the town of Seth located in Boone County wore a jacket that had letters that spelled “TUCK FRUMP” affixed to the back. The letters F-U-C-K were in white and the letters T-R-U-M-P were in black to make her word play and profanity crystal clear.
Judy has had the patch for a while. A photo was posted to her Twitter account on February 26.
My new patch! pic.twitter.com/VAioWzpbRH

Judy released a statement to WOWK-TV on the ‘TUCK FRUMP’ jacket.
Judy said in a statement to 13 News.
“First, yes, I did wear that jacket to school, sans the patch on the back. I took the patch with me so that I could pin it onto the jacket before I left school. This was on Thursday. Since I had a little time before school was out to pin the patch on the jacket, so I did. I tried it on to make sure that the patch was straight. I only had it on for less than two minutes. A like minded student snapped a photo and shared it on social media without my permission. This has gotten so blown out of proportion that it is unreal. I never intended for this to happen. I did not put the jacket back on and made sure that the patch was not exposed until I was well away from the school. People think that I flaunted the jacket at school. I did not. I am a very liberal person but I never force my liberalism on others and never would.”
A video report by KOWK featured an interview with a student who said he would be suspended if he wore what Judy wore. The student, Braxton Harless, also said, “We talk about politics more in her (art) class than a lot of others. But I just know she does not support Trump whatsoever.”
KOWK reported local sentiment is that Judy should be reprimanded but not fired. WSAZ-TV reported some thought Judy should resign.
Judy’s statement to WSAZ was similar to her statement to KOWK.
“Judy confirmed to WSAZ’s Jatara McGee that she is the one in the photo, but says it does not show the whole story. She says she wore the jacket to school without the anti-Trump patch and pinned it on during school hours, trying it on for just two minutes to make sure the patch was on straight. She says in the short period of time she had the jacket on inside the classroom, a like-minded student snapped a picture and posted it to social media.
A community member re-posted the picture, and it has since been shared several thousand times on multiple platforms.
Judy says she did not “flaunt the jacket at school” and although she is liberal, would “never force her liberalism on others.”

MSNBC’s Katy Tur is notably not a fan of President Trump and during Monday’s MTP Daily, where she was filling-in for Chuck Todd, she took numerous swipes at the commander-in-chief. “There are so many questions about what exactly Donald Trump’s foreign policy is. What does the Trump doctrine look like? … There's a lot of confusion about it,” she told Richard Haass of the Council on Foreign Relations, “And the flip-flops that we're seeing, are they rooted in pragmatism or are they rooted in ignorance?”

Judicial Watch Goes to Trial Defending Vietnam Veteran Facing Criminal Charges For Placing Two 4 Inch American Flags on Fence (VIDEO)
Shameful! 75-year-old Vietnam Veteran, Robert Rosebrock is facing criminal charges for placing 2 tiny American flags on a fence on Memorial Day, May 30th, 2016.
Judicial Watch is representing Rosebrock. Trial begins tomorrow, April 18th.
Via Judicial Watch March 3rd:
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today announced it filed a series of motions alleging constitutional and other legal deficiencies in the extraordinary prosecution of its client, Robert L. Rosebrock, a Vietnam-era veteran who faces federal criminal charges for purportedly displaying two four by six inch American Flags above a Veterans Affairs (VA) fence on Memorial Day, May 30, 2016. Judicial Watch’s team of attorneys recently filed:
A motion to suppress statements Rosebrock allegedly made to a VA police officer during a custodial interrogation of Rosebrock without advising him of his Fifth Amendment rights, as required by Miranda v. Arizona.
- Two motions to dismiss the “flag posting” charge and two photography-related charges against Rosebrock on First Amendment and other constitutional grounds.
- A motion to dismiss all charges against Rosebrock on the grounds of selective and vindictive prosecution and retaliation for Rosebrock’s having exercised his First Amendment rights.
- VA officials previously told Rosebrock that a federal regulation allowed hanging the American Flag and POW/MIA flags on the “Great Lawn Gate” fence, and Rosebrock, Hayes and others hung as many as 30 full-size America Flags at the fence at the same time without incident.Rosebrock faces up to six months’ imprisonment if found guilty on any of the three charges.
When a Vietnam veteran is facing criminal charges for hanging napkin sized American flags on a fence while illegal aliens get welfare and free medical care, it is a direct result of liberalism.
Let’s pray this veteran wins this case! Bravo Judicial Watch for helping this man! TGP will update as this case progresses.

On Monday's The View on ABC, co-host Whoopi Goldberg made a point of chastising President Donald Trump -- whom she always refers to as "the new guy" -- because he recently forgot to put his hand over his heart until wife Melania reminded him as the national anthem was being sung. As she suggested that "any adult" who hears the anthem should reflexively remember the proper etiquette, she seemed oblivious to the fact that, in 2007, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama made the same mistake as he infamously forgot to hold his hand over his heart at an event while the anthem was being sung. Whoopi and co-host Joy Behar also reminded viewers of Whoopi's policy of refusing to speak President Trump's name as she insisted, "I'm not saying it," opting to call him "the new guy" instead.
With the polls in Georgia’s special election closing in roughly 24-hours, CBS Evening News spent a segment of Monday night’s program seemingly hyping up the young Democrat running, John Ossoff. “30-year old John Ossoff has gone from unknown documentarian to Democratic-cause-celeb in the space of two months,” praised Correspondent Nancy Cordes. This, while poking fun at Republicans who they claim were struggling to hold the seat.
Lou Dobbs tore into Speaker Paul Ryan on his Monday night show.
Ryan, a globalist who has yet to accomplish anything this session and who failed to repeal Obamacare, is off speaking in Europe to fellow elites and globalists. Meanwhile, he sent his fellow Republican House members back to their districts to get their butts chewed out by far left organized mobs.
The House is only working 8 days in April.
Tonight Dobbs noted that Paul Ryan has a lower approval rating than John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi and Newt Gingrich.
Only 29% of voters approve of the job Paul Ryan is doing.
Dobbs destroyed Paul Ryan in his monologue on Monday.

I’ll tell you what, Brothers.
Marine Le Pen is going to have one hell of a time cleaning house if – and hopefully when – she becomes the next President of France.
I mean, her nation is an utter trash heap at this point in time, with migrant filth, heavily-armed Antifa, and Feminist degenerates able to trash the capital city at will – no consequences for these precious Citizens/Residents of the Republic.

From Breitbart London:
A rally being held by French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen faced a security risk on Monday evening after a protester attempted to storm the stage, eventually being dragged off by the Front National leader’s security detail.
Ms. Le Pen — who is expected to reach the second round of this month’s presidential election — was giving a speech to a massive crowd at a hall in the Parisian neighborhood of Aubervilliers when a female got onto the stage and attempted to throw flowers.
According to reports on Twitter, the suspect was successfully detained, while Ms. Le Pen blamed the “extreme left” for the incident and reemphasized that she is a defender of women.
A BBC Europe producer also claimed that another protester was removed from the audience, having stripped naked in an act of defiance.
Protests against Ms. Le Pen took place in the neighborhood of Aubervilliers, a suburb severely affected by mass immigration, as far-left activists through firebombs at police, who responded with bottles of tear gas.

At the end of the day, this whole thing is not even that extraordinary – especially when you consider the fact that there are now almost-daily riots across France due to the awesome rise of Le Pen (there’s actually one going on right now as I write this piece).
What’s really important is the fact that we’re now seeing Breitbart link tweets from borderline White Nationalist Twitter accounts (a cursory glance shows they’re also apparently Jew wise).
Maybe things will move even more to the right once Steve Bannon returns with a burning rage against the Jew-occupied Trump regime?
Once again, independent journalist Mike Cernovich breaks the story . . .
According to his post:
Google has hired contractors to remove or limit Alex Jones’ website Infowars.com from its search engines. According to a search engine evaluator for Google, all contractors have been [instructed] to actively rate InfoWars as a low quality and untrusted site.
Take a look at the following image:
Cernovich breaks down the instructions to the contractors:
- InfoWars is not an “outright false” website and is not “among the worst of the worst.”
- “There are a number of controversial, often debunked claims that the site regularly promotes.”
- InfoWars articles must be rated “Low to Medium”.
An image taken from his article:
Not long after, Business Insider jumped on the story and helped corroborate Cernovich’s claims. Once again, Cernovich wins big.

MAJOR FAIL – New York Times Allows Convicted Palestinian Terrorist to Pen Op-Ed From Prison, Describes Him as a Leader
The New York Times has allowed convicted Palestinian terrorist, Marwan Barghouti to pen an op-ed. Barghouti is serving 5 life sentences in an Israeli prison after being convicted of killing five Israelis in 3 terrorist attacks in 2001 and 2002.
The New York Times describes Bargouti as a ‘Palestinian leader and parliamentarian’ leaving out the fact that he’s a convicted terrorist.
Via The Daily Caller:
The New York Times has given precious space on its op-ed page to a Palestinian man leading a hunger strike in an Israeli prison. But the essay, from Marwan Barghouti, leaves out one crucial fact: he is in prison because he was convicted of killing five Israelis in terrorist attacks more than a decade ago.
A footnote to the op-ed describes Barghouti only as “a Palestinian leader and parliamentarian,” omitting any reference to his 2004 terrorism conviction.
Barghouti says in his essay:
“I have been both a witness to and a victim of Israel’s illegal system of mass arbitrary arrests and ill-treatment of Palestinian prisoners. After exhausting all other options, I decided there was no choice but to resist these abuses by going on a hunger strike,” Barghouti writes.
The 57-year-old Barghouti says that he has been in and out of prison since the age of 15. He claims he was tortured by Israeli police at the age of 18 and that he has been targeted because of his political opposition to the Israeli government. He also glosses over his most recent conviction, failing to note that it was for terrorism and that it was the product of a “show trial.”
Notably absent from the essay is a denial from Barghouti of the allegations against him. He was convicted in 2004 of orchestrating three separate terrorist attacks in Israel in 2001 and 2002. He was implicated in several other attacks, but was acquitted due to a lack of evidence.
This decision to give a convicted terrorist op-ed space in the New York Times drew condemnation form many people who were outraged.

On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews wondered if the IRS could state that President Trump isn’t really under audit, and stated that it “would be a good leak” if someone at the IRS leaked that Trump isn’t under audit, because “we know there’s no audit.” Matthews said, “[W]e know there’s no audit. Can’t the IRS — they claim the — can’t the IRS just make a statement, ‘He’s not under audit’? Just make the announcement. Can’t somebody — by the way, that would be a good leak.
