AND

You agree that if any clause or component of this document is found to not be legally binding in a court of law of proper jurisdiction then the remainder of this document shall remain fully binding and in full force.

AND

You agree to NOT hold Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (makers of the forum software), uspoliticsonline.com, sites affiliated with uspoliticsonline.com, its administrators, its moderators, others associated with its operation, and its owners liable for any and all of the following (in whole or in part):

This includes using your real name or other details that could allow other members and/or the general public to determine your true identity. You are prohibited from using your real name on these forums, either as your username or in posts / PMs you write.

FORUM RULES, IN ADDITION TO THE DISCLAIMER

1. These rules apply to all sections of USPOL, including public and private forums, blogs, and visitor messages.

2. You cannot attack and/or personally insult someone. You cannot bait other forum members; this includes referring to posters by derogatory terms. Please, remain courteous and respectful to all forum members at all times. You agree to take responsibility for reporting such posts when you come across them. Please, use the ignore feature if need be. Any member who intentionally and continually posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response, or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion, may be regarded as a troll by staff, and have their account suspended or banned.

3. You cannot harass (sexually or otherwise) other members. This includes malicious, slanderous, or defamatory comments. If you are not sure if something you write is inappropriate or not then don't say it. Err on the side of caution.

4. Copying and Pasting Articles, and Starting New Threads. You cannot simply cut and paste in posts or when starting threads. You MUST provide the identifying information (source, author, date, and URL). You must also offer some original thoughts along with the cut and paste. You may copy and paste an excerpt or series of excerpts from the article. Excerpts really shouldnt be more then a paragraph or two. Furthermore, if you use images or other copyrighted material in your posts or signature you must have permission of the copyright holder unless you know for a fact that the image is in the public domain. In addition:
a. It must include the identifying information; e.g., where available, the author, the publication, the date, the URL.
b. The member must offer some context, including: How did you hear of this article? What is your opinion? Why is it important to you? Why should it be important to forum readers? The more context you provide, the more you assist others in gauging the excerpted information's significance.
c. You may copy and paste an excerpt or series of excerpts, not the whole thing or even the majority of the whole thing to encourage people to read the entire article.

A violation of any of the above will result in the deletion or closing of the post or thread and could earn you a warning or suspension. If you have any questions concering any of the above please PM a moderator and we will be happy to clarify.

5. You cannot post the same thing in multiple forums. You must not open similar threads about the same or a similar topic. You cannot spam the board or send unsolicited messages to members via PM, email or any other means.

6. Do not post off-topic. You cannot derail a thread with off topic posts.

7. You cannot shout in posts. This includes posting in all CAPS, bold, lIkE tHiS, and extra large font. Posts should also be one color, although you may use an additional color for highlighting ideas you wish to address.

8. You may not alter quotes in a way that misrepresents what was originally said.

9. Multiple accounts are not allowed. If you are found to have more than one account all accounts will be permanently terminated.

10. You cannot have a user name, avatar, signature, or post images that are deliberately offensive. That includes the display of overly explicit or graphic images that may not be suitable for minors.

11. Signatures can not have more than three lines of text, with a font size no larger than "4", and no more than two font colors. Images in signatures cannot be any larger than 800 pixels wide x 200 pixels tall. Animated images are not allowed.

12. You are prohibited from taking any action to disturb the use of the services by others, distribute material that contains viruses, spyware or any other malicious code or harmful programs. This includes interfering with the working of the network, attempts to gain unauthorized access to a service or other computer systems that are part of the site or any other site, by use of the available services.

13. Discussion of moderation actions in public and/or private forums is not permitted. Moderation actions include warnings, suspensions and the editing or deletion of posts. If a member has a concern about a moderation action, he or she is invited to address it with the board staff via Private Message. This rule exists to protect the privacy of all posters with regards to disciplinary action. The moderator team will never publicly discuss the warnings/suspensions of any posters, and we ask that you return the favor, whether about yourself or another poster. Posting about moderation actions in the public forums constitutes a violation. You are free to discuss a moderation action via Private Message with the moderator involved, but you may not harass or abuse the moderators (as already specified in the forum rules). In practical terms, this means that once a moderator tells you his or her decision is final, no further PMs about that moderation action are permitted. If you have a concern about a moderation action, you are free to appeal to a Forum Administrator via Private Message. You may only discuss moderator activities or discussion of moderation with staff member if you chose to private message and are not under any circumstances allowed to use the PM function to forward or promote moderator discussion in regards to specific forum action, amongst other regular members. Administrators do reserve the right to read said PMs and may do so ; if that results in discovery of messaging between posters of such moderator discussion then it will lead to the same violation being received for discussing said moderator actions on the forum. If you receive a message to the effect of having been given moderator information, please report it to a member of staff. Engaging back in that discussion with the original violator will earn you just as stiff a sanction.

14. Do not ignore moderators or administrators. Do not repost something a moderator or administrator has deleted. You cannot have moderators or administrators on your ignore list.

15. Only post in English. Short passages in foreign languages may be acceptable if its use seems helpful for the ongoing discussion and when there is no indication of a potential violation of the forum rules. Always provide a translation into English in such cases. In case of doubt, the incident will be regarded as a violation, no matter of the actual meaning of the foreign language text.

16. The use of words/comments etc. written by other posters, without approval of the poster in your personal signature is not allowed nor are references, by name, to other posters allowed.

17. Please pay attention to announcements by Forum staff that will be found in the "Welcome! / News & Announcements" forum from time to time.

18. Use of "liar", "lies", "lying", etc. Accusing someone of being a "liar" or similar accusations towards other posters will generally be regarded as implying an insult and therewith as a violation of the forum rules. "I question the validity of your statement because...", "That's not the truth" or "you are wrong about that" are sufficient for any decent discussion if you want to disagree with somebody's assertions.

19. Thread opening restriction for new members. In order to control SPAM, new members must have moderator approval to start their own threads.

20. Thread titles must relate to the discussion within. Do not make misleading titles, or titles such as "Guess what..." or "You'll never believe this...". Members need to be able to identify the general gist of the thread via the title. Profanity in thread titles is not permitted.

21. Forum members are instructed to use forum tools and abilities for their intended purposes and no other. If members identify a forum glitch or weakness of any kind that allows you to see or do something you know you shouldn't, please report it. Being aware of any unintended access to the Forum and failing to take appropriate steps to notify staff of said access issues, will create a presumption of seeking to take advantage of the issue, will result in either account suspension, or banishment.

22. Any link to a site that contains graphic content, must contain a warning describing what a person might reasonably expect to view if they click on said link. No graphic pictures are to be posted on the Forum.

23. Threats or advocations of violence toward a public figure, or member of the Forum, will not be tolerated. Conversation about revolution or the like is not prohibited by this rule; directly calling for violence is, eg It's time to kill every <redacted> that voted for the bill, is not permitted.

24. Accounts with no posts will be deleted after 30 days. Inactive accounts with low post histories may be deleted after one year.

25. Private forums are something offered to members that decide to contribute directly to this site via donations. These donations help immensely in keeping this site up and running. Private forums are designed to allow the contributing member discuss whatever he/she wants to and to have the power to direct that discussion in whatever way he/she chose. They were not designed nor are they intended for simply talking trash about members that don't have access to the forum. While the targeted members cannot see the forum or the comments, it creates a negative atmosphere that really isn't necessary. If you want to totally rip apart ideas, ideologies, political parties, etc. that is fine. We simply ask that you don't use the private forums as a means to attack other members that aren't privy to such comments. It is difficult enough to have a political discussion forum because the discussion of politics is inherently heated as people are so passionate about their beliefs...the ones that take the time to come to such a site in the first place at least. The idea of private forums is so people of similar political persuasions can discuss whatever they want without fear of being attacked. Nonetheless, we hope that a certain level of maturity would foster itself within such an arena and not simply lend itself to a bashing forum.

Private Forums are governed by all of the above Forum rules. In addition:
  • Private forums that essentially become abandoned homes will be subject to deletion, donation or reorganization. Just like elsewhere in life, clubs sometimes lose their vitality and purpose for a myriad of reasons. If it becomes clear that a private forum has clearly lost its vitality and nobody is going to really use it anymore, owners are advised to consider whether to reuse the forum for something new and productive rather than let them linger or notify the Administration that the forum should be rearranged for other purposes, closed, merged with other compatible private forums, donated to others for new purposes, etc. Do not be concerned that your forum must be a membership and post count race with others to avoid falling under this policy; the question is whether your forum has actual vitality instead of being 'brain dead.'
  • Additionally, private forums may only be owned by subscribed members in the Platinum or Diamond categories.
  • Should the owner of a private forum be banned, quit USPOL or otherwise abandon the forum the PF will be transferred to another owner or closed.
  • Propriety of private forums. Administration staff will determine the desirability of a proposed private forum and enact any conditions upon it to ensure its purpose is productive.
  • Any and all instances of sharing accounts by allowing someone else to log in under their own account so they can see into private forums for which they are otherwise not permitted to access, will be deemed violation of the double account rule and all caught doing so will be permanently banned.
  • Relaying private forum posts and information to other posters who are not members of the particular private forum for any negative or destructive purpose (eg mean-spirited gossip, fueling interpersonal disputes, etc), is not permitted, and will constitute a violation of the Forum rules.
  • For purposes of monitoring USPOL Terms of Service Administrative staff (not Moderators) will have access to Private Forums.
  • All Private Forums must have at least one active Administrator as a member for purposes of handling issues which cannot be addressed through moderation permissions.
  • Discussion of moderation activities is prohibited on the open site and is likewise prohibited in Private Forums.

26. The administrators and moderators reserve the right to edit and/or delete a post,and/or close a thread, and/or delete a thread at any time if of the opinion that the post is too obscene, inappropriate, or the discussion has run its course.

27. 'Back seat moderating' is not allowed. If you take issue with another poster's contribution to the forum, you're welcome to report any posts you think are out of line, but you should not bring it up publicly within the forum.

28. Images in posts (whether embedded or hot linked) must be reasonable in size. 800x800 should be considered a good rule of thumb. Excessively large images make it difficult for users on mobile devices to load pages. If necessary please simply link to very large images using the URL tags. In addition, the following images are not permitted (including, but not limited to pages with images or videos containing):
  • Strategically covered nudity
  • Sheer or see-through clothing
  • Lewd or provocative poses
  • Close-ups of breasts, buttocks, or crotches

29. Any solicitation or communication involving sports betting / gambling / online casinos / bookies and or internet based card or slot machine systems or sites will lead to all said content being physically removed from the site and server, and will lead to any and or all parties involved being permanently removed and banned from the site to the farthest extent possible. This includes any links to any form of bookmaker, casino, any type of game or match or event where money transfers on the outcome or link of any sort to wire act violations and or anything in violation of either the Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection, and Enforcement Act, Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006, or the Federal wire Act. This applies not only to the open forum but all and or any chat rooms, articles, private messages and or private forums. All content that violates this rule will be deleted, without notice.

CONSEQUENCES

Failure to comply with any of the forum rules may result in your posts being edited or deleted and/or your account being temporarily or permanently banned from the forums. U.S. Politics Online uses a warning system that generates an automated Private Message to members when they are in violation of Forum rules. The decision to issue a warning is left to the discretion of the moderator or administrator handling the violation. If a member does not agree with an action taken by a moderator, they can appeal to an administrator after seeking clarification from the moderator who issued the warning/infraction and appealing to them in the first instance. Members MAY NOT harass a moderator or administrator by sending excessive PMs when they are discussing an appeal.

Violations are assigned a point value. Points are valid for 30 days. When a members earns 10 points, their account will be automatically suspended: five (5) days for a first suspension; ten (10) days for a second suspension; and twenty (20) days for a third suspension. If a member incurs an additional 10 points after having served three periods of suspension, then they will be permanently banned from the Forum.

Point values are as follows:
Zero (0) points Warning
Two (2) points - Minor infraction / Non post infraction (minor) / Off topic posts / spamming
Four (4) points - Academic dishonesty / Baiting / Discussing moderator or administrator actions / Implying an insult / Minor insults / Moderate infraction / Non-post infraction (moderate) / Thread dumping
Six (6) points - Direct insult at another member / major infraction / Non-post infraction (major)
Ten (10) points - Act of criminality, or advocating thereof

The administrators and moderators also bear the right to issue warnings, temporarily suspend or ban posters for continued trolling or other serious misconduct (eg. professional spamming) even if the poster has not yet reached the maximum warning points or suspensions level. Other options if the above consequences do not seem adequate include placing the member in a moderation queue, which means all posts will have to be approved before they are posted to the board.

PRIVACY POLICY

All information obtained by the end user via the registration process is for internal purposes only and will not be sold to or shared with any third parties. However, if the end user participates in illegal activities and a court of proper jurisdiction orders U.S. Politics Online to release certain information about said user then we will act according to the law. Furthermore, no information will be released on threat of a lawsuit, attempted or actual intimidation, or due to any other reason except as notated in the first sentence of this paragraph. Nonetheless, keep in mind that the information we do have is very limited and generally only consists of the IP address a member uses.

SUBSCRIPTIONS

U.S. Politics Online offers several subscription plans to help cover the operational costs of the site. As a thank you for your donation, you will receive special added benefits meant to enhance your U.S. Politics Online experience. Plans vary in price, starting at only $0.05/day, and benefits vary with the price.

    Sanders pointing out ...New Caravan coming Shows Trump 'Right All Along'

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "It's time for Democrats to work with us, to fix the problem. So far, Democrats have been unwilling to negotiate. This is a further example of why it is so important that they do."

    However, Democratic lawmakers have been "willing to do nothing but obstruct," Sanders added, but that won't reopen the government.

    "They claim to care about federal workers but they have been so busy hanging out on the beaches of Puerto Rico, and hitting Broadway shows, they don't have time to sit down with the president," Sanders said. "They were no-shows yesterday."

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "keeps claiming" that the government must be reopened before Democrats can negotiate, Sanders added.

    "He (Trump) asked her asked her point-blank, 'if I open the government, will you work with me and give me border security funding including the wall?' and she said no," Sanders said.

    Several federal employees have been called back to work, as Trump is committed to being sure the government is still functioning, she added.

    "Certainly we do not want the government to remain closed, which is why we asked Democrats to sit down help us solve the problem," said Sanders.

    "We can't continue kicking this down the road. We can't continue to ignore it. We know there is a crisis at the border. American lives are at stake. The president wants to do what his constitutional duty is to protect those."

        This is the year of 2019.

        That means it is 2019... that's what year it is RIGHT now.

        The story you offer is from 2017.

        Were it the year 2017, you might have a point.

        Can you find this story for this year at least ... maybe ?

        Seeing as how you live in the real world and all.

          In other words you are saying that things went drastically downhill after Trump became president. Why don't we just go back to doing things the way normal presidents did things? Here please watch this little video. It might open ypur eyes. https://video.search.yahoo.com/yhs/s...d&action=click

            Is that what I was saying ?

            I thought I was pointing out that you used a two year old story to support that "Top border official says illegal immigration at 45-year low"...

            You then change your mind and ask us;

            "Why don't we just go back to doing things the way normal presidents did things?"

            "Normal presidents" are what got us where we are today with a massive problem of drugs & people illegally entering our country and causing trouble.

            I think we've had enough with "Normal presidents," the last president proved that !

              Did you watch my little video? And you still think a wall is the way to cope with the problems you listed?

                Did.

                The wall IS a way to help stop the invasion.

                Other ways are to stop paying them to COME here. When they come here illegally and get NOTHING but returned to their homeland, they will stop coming here.

                But the wall has to be built as well. Otherwise, they're coming. Bringing their drugs, diseases & crimes.

                  Arizona proved it just a few years ago.

                  they started holding businesses responsible for hiring ilegals and the businesses stopped. Illegals, to quote Yogi Berra, stayed away in droves as they just kept on walking to more welcoming states like North Mexico (California).

                  There is zero question (by rational, intelligent people) these measures work, although no one measure is the panacea.

                    The "deplorables" are in D.C....

                    D stands for deplorables !

                    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                    The wall is for America

                    Double-minded Democrats have forgotten the wall is for America and its legal citizens who believe in and want to maintain law.

                    Instead, they recite emotional stories hoping to divert attention away from the need for a barrier in favor of increased border security while blaming a president who made a promise, and surprisingly, is trying to keep it.

                    President Trump should pay more attention to those who elected him and less to the swamp. Too many in politics are acting without regard to the real issues and their effects on America choosing instead to place their own personal interests over the nation as a whole.

                    America's been kicking some cans down the road, and while building a physical wall along the southern border will not solve all the problems Congress and past presidents have ignored, it will certainly solve some and begin to address some of the others.

                    Perhaps they are mad that someone with no political experience busted the door down and is actually trying to keep promises made. The irony is that Trump is trying to do with the wall what one of Democrats' favorite presidents, Obama, wanted for America: better control over the borders.

                    Ronald Reagan used to have a plaque on his desk which read: "There is no limit what a man can do or where he can go if he does not mind who gets credit." A huge part of the problem is the Democrats know Trump will get the credit, not them.

                    Illegal immigration on America's southern border has reached a critical point and a wall is the only way to seriously address the problem.

                    Democrats deserve strong rebuke

                    Democrats have put their hatred of Trump ("He's not my President" was the slogan after the election) above the interests of the country.

                    Will they sacrifice us as a nation so they can have power in politics? Five billion dollars in the context of a budget that tops four trillion dollars is insignificant.

                    This decision about the wall will affect the future of America as surely as the Revolutionary War with England did. The difference is that rather than face another country where unreasonable economic and religious pressures were imposed upon us, we are giving our country away to illegal immigrants who require some sort of welfare support coming from the pockets of law-abiding citizens who are working for their American dream.

                    There is no such thing as a free lunch

                    Working Americans know full well that "entitlements" granted to one group of people only come at the expense of another group of people. Politicians seem to trivialize or forget this as they are being wined and dined in the elegant and isolated economies surrounding Washington, DC.

                    Most Americans can't do like the Democrats and run away from their pressing responsibilities in Washington to go elsewhere - a U.S. territory, for example - to watch a special theater production.

                    Apparently, the 227-mile trip from Washington, DC, to New York to see Hamilton, where even the cheap tickets are nearly $300 and orchestra seats are $749, was too difficult. Instead, they had to go 1,560 miles away from Washington, DC, to Puerto Rico to be courted by 109 lobbyists, attend at least three parties, and hang with the cast of Hamilton.

                    Talk about a job "perk." But their perk is a poke, stab, and jab at Americans who want America to be great again.


                    Greatness requires the realization there is no such thing as a free lunch. Somebody pays.

                    Even if they continue to print money faster than the "wink-winks" of their eyes to each other in devilish deals which hurt America, it would eventually collapse our dollar or raise interest rates and then what? Chaos. That's not responsible governing that's foolishness and deplorable behavior.


                    The lobbyist/Democrat ratio was 3.9 to 1 in Puerto Rico. And the money flowed from before the chartered 737 rose into the sky with the members, their families, and others.

                    They did this on the day 800,000 federal workers did not receive their first paycheck during the government shutdown?

                    Awkward. Crass. Arrogant.


                    I can hear the excuses. "It was planned. We didn't know there would be a government shutdown." "It's part of my job to attend these because we learn the issues affecting the people."

                    What about the issues affecting America which you've been kicking down the road again and again to the point America will explode or implode because of loads of people coming across the open, unsecured border which creates a heavier load on legal citizens?

                    While we do not have the resources to "wine and dine" you, we have votes and some of you are attempting to weaken legal voters so you can maintain your jobs (and only American citizens should have this right to vote because it IS America. Otherwise, why are you so concerned about Russia influencing politics? By your logic, illegal non-citizens can vote, so will you allow Russian citizens to have absentee ballots?).

                    Aren't you satisfied that you can have a pension of about $18,000 per year forever after working just five years while only 4% of most Americans in the private, non-government sector even have a pension?

                    The free and open border is creating a bill that some are already paying for with life, limb, and liberties. And the bill, the cost, is only going to grow unless we gain control of the border.

                    The future is bleak if we allow Democrats to convince us that having a border makes us weak. It is wise and strong to see where problems are or are coming from and to take a stand for doing what's right for self-preservation of a nation.

                    Who does not lock the doors of their houses, cars, apartments, or in any way protect themselves? If they saw even a small group of ten people approaching their car, would they jump out and say, "Here, what's mine is yours" and give it away as they walked and whistled their way to work?

                    Instead, by refusing to close the borders and create a path without legal loopholes, they are saying to the illegal immigrant: "Here, what's theirs is yours. Take, enjoy, and don't forget to vote for us in the next election."

                    There are costs like federal crimes. Despite full tracking on the state and local level, the US Sentencing shows that of those convicted of federal crimes, 44.2 percent were not U.S. citizens. "What we can say, at least at the federal level, is that non-citizens are more likely to commit crimes than citizens," according to the Center for Immigration Studies. How "more likely?" 2.5 times more likely.

                    At the known average of 2,000 captured illegals per day, can we agree that it is easier to patrol a physical barrier, i.e. a wall, than it is to patrol open areas? Okay, maybe you weren't in the military like I was, but let me tell you, it is.

                    The wall isn't meant just for the current and future safety of America and her citizens, but it also provides an orderly path and guide to legal ports of entry.

                    What's one thing America can do that will make everything else easier and/or unnecessary [both short-term and long-term]?

                    With respect to the author of the book One Thing, Gary Keller, this is what he calls a "Focusing Question" which is a question he mentions in various formats throughout his book to get to important, real issues.

                    That one thing is to physically build the wall as soon as possible. It is a national emergency, though not all can see it yet.


                    It fits the time when Clinton said illegal immigrants were affecting jobs, the delivery of public service, imposes burdens on taxpayers, and that we needed to secure the border, hire more guards (the wall would improve each border patrol member's effectiveness).

                    It matches the time President Bush said we shouldn't let people sneak into this country across our borders.

                    To the Democrats who went to Puerto Rico to see Hamilton and those who stayed, here's a quote from Alexander Hamilton's The Federalist Papers: "Safety from external danger is the most powerful director of national conduct."

                    The external danger is allowing "people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, and lawfully to become immigrants in this country." Yes, that quote comes from the Nobel Peace Prize recipient and former U.S. president, Barack Obama.

                    The conduct this directs is: Build the wall.

                    Democrats should stop worrying about who gets credit and wins the next election. Help keep the peace and win the prize for America let's all build our wall together. It's the right thing to do for so many reasons, like the strain on our resources is like killing the goose who lays the golden eggs, but especially because there is no such thing as a free lunch.

                      Elaborately Planned Caravan Brings Human Traffickers & Violent Gangbangers to Guatemala

                      The migrant caravan marching northbound through Central America is an elaborately planned movement thats benefiting human smugglers and bringing disturbing numbers of violent gang members and other criminal elements through Guatemala, according to government sources in the capital city.

                      "MS-13 gang members have been detained and coyotes (human smugglers) are joining the march with clients who pay to get smuggled into the United States, a Guatemalan official told Judicial Watch.

                      People from Asian countries waiting to get smuggled into the U.S. through Central America are also integrating with poor Hondurans in the caravan, a high-level Guatemalan government source confirmed. Among them are nationals of Bangladesh, a south Asian Islamic country thats well known as a recruiting ground for terrorist groups such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda Indian Subcontinent (AQIS). There are lots of dirty businesses associated with this, Guatemalan authorities told Judicial Watch. Theres lots of human trafficking.

                      Sandwiched between Honduras and Mexico, Guatemala has been overrun with the onslaught of migrants that began their journey last week in the northern Honduran city of San Pedro Sula. At last count around 7,000 have participated in the trek, a great deal of them rowdy, angry men ages 17 to 40. President Jimmy Morales has ordered the military and police to detain all of the migrants and facilitate their safe return back to Honduras, though thousands have already reached the Mexican border. In a morning interview with Judicial Watch at the Guatemalan Ministry of Defense, Secretary of Defense General Luis Miguel Ralda Moreno said more than 2,000 Hondurans have been sent back home on buses. Were doing everything possible to stop the caravan while still respecting human rights, General Moreno said.

                      During an afternoon interview at the National Palace, President Morales said that Guatemala has absorbed the huge cost of mobilizing police and military to return thousands of people to Honduras. He would like the United States to help him find the organizers of the caravan so they can face legal consequences. Mass immigration like this endangers lives, Morales said. This is unprecedented. We are in the process of investigating who is behind the caravan. Morales assures that Guatemala is doing everything possible to curb illegal immigration and asked for cooperation from the United States.

                      It has been a delicate and complicated task, Guatemalan officials say, because the caravan is a very organized movement that has been well orchestrated. There are rest points along the route with food, water and shelter for the migrants as well as medical care in some areas. Its very strategic and extremely organized, a Guatemalan government source told Judicial Watch. It is very complex, not a simple march. There is nothing spontaneous about it. During a visit to the Guatemalan-Honduran border this week Judicial Watch interviewed multiple migrants who repeated the same rehearsed line when asked who organized the caravan, insisting it was a spontaneous event even though there were clearly organizers shouting instructions in Spanish and putting select persons in front of cameras for interviews. All of them said the caravan was not about politics but rather poverty.

                      Guatemalan officials disagree, estimating that the caravan is a movement of radicalized forces to destabilize Central American countries. Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernndez, a conservative, echoes that assessment. In a local newspaper report published last week Hernndez asserted that leftist interests seeking to destabilize the country are manipulating migrants. Women and children are being used without regard to the risks to their lives, Hernndez said. The irregular mobilization was organized for political reasons to negatively affect the governance and image of Honduras and to destabilize the peace of neighboring countries, the president said, adding that many have returned to the country after realizing theyve been fooled.

                          I know you have a lot of trouble with reading/comprehension.

                          Try reading again. Maybe this one will be easier, I don't know ?

                          We always know when you have trouble reading and/or understanding something when all you offer in response is one or two sentences that make almost no sense.

                          More evidence that we have a serious problem on our southern border

                          I know some that don't need to see anymore evidence, but there are others think all this is acceptable. ...

                          ... It's these people that are the other real danger. That they think this is all Ok, tells you how they feel about America !

                          And so, we have this ...

                          These are great folks coming to illegally enter our country...

                          An organizer of the latest migrant caravan was arrested on rape charges in Honduras.

                          Juan Carlos Molina, the subject of an arrest warrant since August 2015, was on his way to the United States to seek asylum after raping his minor cousin, Diario La Tribuna reported, according to the Gateway Pundit.

                          The paper said Molina, 26, is accused of sneaking into the bedroom of his cousin, 12, at night while the girls mother was away at work.

                          The minor child became pregnant and gave birth to a son, the paper said. A DNA test of the infant revealed the child was Molinas.


                          Molina skipped court dates and ultimately became a fugitive. He would have made it to the U.S. if he had not been arrested, the Gateway Pundit noted.

                          The new caravan of an estimated 800 migrants left San Pedro Sula, Honduras, on Monday.

                          Breitbart News reported Miguel Perez, the sub-director of the Honduran Border Police, said that at the time of his arrest, Molina had fake IDs.


                          [ probably not so hard to get there ]

                          The new caravan, Breitbart noted, comes as the Mexican border city of Tijuana continues to deal with thousands of members of the first caravan who are still waiting to enter the U.S. to request asylum.

                          Tijuana officials say they lack support from the Mexican federal government to provide food shelters and other basic needs for members of the first caravan.

                              Yeah, we need to make it illegal to hire illegals. That's what this shows.

                              It also doesn't show that Mr. Trump personally hired these people.

                              This is an old story.

                                We have a problem that only fools want to ignore.

                                We do need a wall on the border.

                                This has been going on for many decades.

                                Now it's at a point of crisis.

                                -----------------------------------------------------------

                                Every day we wait leaves this country more exposed and puts vulnerable populations of families and children on the border more at risk.

                                We face a humanitarian and security crisis
                                By Kirstjen Nielsen
                                USA Today
                                January 9, 2019

                                There is a humanitarian and security crisis at our southwest border.

                                It is getting worse, and a status quo response from Congress inadequate authorities, insufficient funds and indifference to the chaos will not cut it.

                                What we do know is that the smuggling of deadly drugs such as fentanyl which kills thousands every year is on the rise.

                                We know that the large number of criminals includes thousands of convicted offenders and nearly 800 gang members caught trying to get across the southern border last year alone.

                                We are also facing a humanitarian catastrophe.

                                For the first time, families and children make up the majority of those entering illegally. Why? Because word has gotten out that our broken legal framework will give them a free pass into the United States. This has dramatically changed the migrant flows, and it is a crisis because our system wasnt built to handle it.

                                The trek has become a nightmare, with more than 30 percent of women reporting sexual assault along the way and 70 percent of all migrants reporting violence.
