From BREITBART.COM:  by John Binder

A number of House Republicans are petitioning President Trump to quickly sign an executive order that adds the American citizenship question to the 2020 Census.

Trump’s Commerce Department first announced last year that the American citizenship question — i.e., all U.S. residents are asked whether or not they are a U.S. citizen — would be put back on the Census form for 2020. Since 1950, the citizenship question has not been asked on the full Census, leaving the nation without an exact estimate of how many citizens and noncitizens are in the country.

Most recently, the U.S. Supreme Court voted five-four to block the addition of the citizenship question on the upcoming Census, though reports have circulated that Trump is planning to sign an executive order to ensure that the question is put on the 2020 Census forms.

In a letter to Attorney General William Barr on Wednesday, 19 House Republicans asked that Trump sign an executive order as soon as possible that would place the citizenship question on the 2020 Census, noting its importance in knowing the impact of the country’s mass illegal and legal immigration system.

The letter states:

We are writing today to encourage you to work with President Trump to support the issuance of a memorandum or executive order appropriate under our Constitution and laws to clearly outline the President’s rationale for including a citizenship question on the census. Inclusion of such a citizenship question is clearly constitutional and lawful, and as members of Congress we can say unequivocally that we support inclusion of such a question and that it is critical that the President do so as quickly as possible as we prepare for the coming census. [Emphasis added] From our vantage point in Congress, there are numerous important reasons to include the question on the census, of which the President clearly is aware. Those reasons range from determining appropriations levels for states and localities and having data for states to make decisions on ballot box placement, to collection of data for purposes of understanding the impact of immigration (legal and illegal) on communities, as well as obviously impacting apportionment and re-districting. [Emphasis added] Despite claims to the contrary, citizenship is unquestionably germane to carrying out our duty to apportion representatives. Setting aside the fact it remains an unsettled question as to whether states can, in fact, use citizenship data in redistricting, the 14th Amendment demands that we take into account citizenship in allocation of representation. Under section 2 of the 14th Amendment – and as further amended by the 19th and 26th Amendments – in order that we be able to enforce the penalty put in place by the Amendment’s authors and ratifiers for any interference with the right to vote, the administration arguably is required to capture the citizenship information. [Emphasis added]

Those who petitioned Trump to immediately sign an executive order to include the citizenship question on the Census include:

  • Chip Roy (R-TX)
  • Mo Brooks (R-AL)
  • Jody Hice (R-GA)
  • Bill Posey (R-FL)
  • Paul Gosar (R-AZ)
  • Jeff Duncan (R-SC)
  • Jim Jordan (R-OH)
  • Ted Yoho (R-FL)
  • Ralph Norman (R-SC)
  • Andy Biggs (R-AZ)
  • Michael Cloud (R-TX)
  • Scott DesJarlais (R-TN)
  • Louie Gohmert (R-TX)
  • Warren Davidson (R-OH)
  • Ted Budd (R-NC)
  • Scott Perry (R-PA)
  • Andy Harris (R-MD)
  • Alex Mooney (R-WV)
  • Mark Meadows (R-NC)

Save Us From the Green New Deal

Reparations PAID IN FULL


Most of the Democratic candidates are now pushing for ‘reparations.’ They must know it’s all ludicrous, impractical, and unfair, but it’s another way to divide the country.

Reparations were paid in blood when over 600,000 men died fighting the Civil War. America has already righted the wrong that was slavery.

The reparation talk isn’t really what it seems, though. It’s simply about the Socialist Democrats seizing on any issue that will raise our taxes while making more people dependent on government.

They don’t want us coming together. We are already a divided nation and reparations will only widen the gulf. Our divided nation is already fighting a second civil war, albeit it cold one. We don’t need to turn it into a hot one.

President Trump “The Dictator” is Having a 4th of July Parade

The wild and crazy left-of-left crazies from the so-called news media, Hollywood, and even our own government, who are trying to take over our beloved country and tear it down from its roots are now doubling down on their hatred of our president.

Politicians, pundits, and performers are pouncing on President Trump and calling him dictator. It’s not like they’ve never done so before. But I’ve never seen it with so much volume and hate. All, they say, because we will be showcasing our beloved military, and our might in a parade in Washington, DC. When? On the 4th of July, Independence Day. How dictatorial is that? I thought it was patriotic. Oh well, he’s not the first. And I believe Betsy Ross might be weeping right now.

Was President Eisenhower a dictator?

How about President John F. Kennedy? Was he a dictator?

How about the Persian Gulf War Veterans?

Breitbart Exclusive — Burgess Owens on Reparations: ‘Every Bad Thing That’s Happened to My Race Over the Years’ Goes ‘Right Back to the Democratic Party’

by Robert Kraychik June 19, 2019

“Every bad thing that’s happened to my race over the years, you can go right back to the Democratic Party,” said Burgess Owens, retired NFL safety and Super Bowl champion, in a Wednesday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.

Earlier on Wednesday, Owens testified at a hearing on slavery reparations before a House Judiciary subcommittee. He proposed that the Democrat Party pay for “all the misery” brought upon blacks across America’s history.

“So I’m blessed that it’s not a hypothetical to me,” continued Owens. “I know how it felt. I looked around and saw the examples of great men and women. To be where we are today is an insult to them. My dad, my granddad, my great-grandfather worked too hard for their history to be forgotten. That’s actually what it takes for this socialist-Marxist shadow, and that’s all reparations is. It’s another socialist way of getting people dependent, angry, and divided. But for that to work, they have to first demean and delete our great history, and we can’t let that happen, because what we’ve done together has made our country the greatest in the history of mankind.” Audio,video and the rest of this article HERE.

 

 

Mark Levin: ‘I Don’t Intend to Pay One Damn Penny in Reparations to Anybody, Period’

by Jeff Poor

At the top of his Wednesday nationally syndicated radio broadcast, conservative talker Mark Levin, author of “Unfreedom of the Press,” castigated Democrats pushing the position of reparations to be paid out for America’s past sin of slavery.

Levin acknowledged the “awful” of slavery in the United States but argued the issue was being used as a political wedge by the Democratic Party.

“Slavery is the most awful, awful event that occurred in this country,” Levin said. “But I’ll be damned if I’m paying one penny in reparations for many reasons. I had nothing to do with it. My ancestors weren’t even here. In fact, the vast majority of people who live in this country were neither the progeny of slaves or slaveholders. This is a scam. This is a scam. It is the latest push by the left to divide this country, to make it impossible for us to ever come together, being pushed by the left and the Democrat Party.”

According to Levin, there were already prices paid by Americans for slavery with the loss of life in the American Civil War. Read the rest HERE.
