Biden administration orders CBP, ICE to stop using the term ‘illegal alien’

​T​he Biden administration has ordered federal immigration enforcement agencies to nix the use of terms like “illegal alien” and “assimilation” when referring to illegal immigrants, in favor of more “inclusive language,” according to a report on Monday. ​

The new directive was included in a memo sent to the heads of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection as part of an effort by the Biden White House to build a more “humane” immigration system, the Washington Post reported, citing copies it obtained.​​

According to the document, “alien” will become “noncitizen or migrant,” “illegal” will be called “undocumented,” and “assimilation” will be referred to as “integration.”​​

“The words we use matter,” Troy Miller, a senior CBP official, said in his memo.

Moms Demand Action calls for stricter gun laws after FedEx shooting

……….The Indiana chapter said Red Flag laws work.

Legislatures can pass all the laws they want, but laws, whatever they are – whether you agree with them or not – do not work if the authorities don’t enforce them.

Prosecutor Offers Bizarre Reason Why Red Flag Law Wasn’t Used Against FedEx Shooter

We learned over the weekend that the young man responsible for the shooting at the FedEx facility in Indianapolis legally purchased the rifles used in the attack, despite the fact that police had confiscated a shotgun from him last March after his mother warned that she was afraid her son was going to commit “suicide by cop.”

That raised questions about how the suspect was able to legally acquire any firearms, given the state’s red flag law that’s been on the books for decades. Paul Helmke, the former head of the Brady Campaign and an Indiana resident, was quick to say that the state’s red flag law is rife with “loopholes” that don’t prevent those subject to a red flag order from purchasing other guns. It would appear that Helmke is wrong about that, at least according to the Indiana State Police, which says that when a red flag order is authorized, the warrant to seize the firearms in question should also include the suspension of any carry license and a prohibition on the subject “renting, receiving transfer of, owning, or possessing firearms.”

As it turns out, it wasn’t a loophole in Indiana’s red flag law that allowed the suspect to legally purchase his guns, because Marion County Prosecutor Ryan Mears acknowledged today that the red flag law was never invoked; either before or after his shotgun was seized last year.

AOC backs court packing, says court shouldn’t overturn laws backed by thousands of advocates

Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday threw her weight behind expanding the Supreme Court.

“I do think we should be expanding the court,” she told reporters.

The New York Democrat, part of the progressive “Squad” collective on Capitol Hill, reasoned the justices overturning laws is part of the problem with the 6-3 conservative majority.

“The idea that nine people, that a nine-person court, can overturn laws that … hundreds and thousands of legislators, advocacy and policymakers drew consensus on … we have to … just ask ourselves, I think as a country, how much does that current structure benefit us? And I don’t think it does,” she said.

Sen. Edward Markey, Massachusetts Democrat, led the charge Thursday to unveil a bill to add four seats to the bench, declaring that the Supreme Court is broken and needs to be fixed.

“The United States Supreme Court is broken. It is out of balance and it needs to be fixed,” Mr. Markey said on the steps of the Supreme Court. “Too many Americans have lost faith in the court as a neutral arbiter.”

The Massachusetts senator blamed former President Trump and Senate Republicans for holding a vacancy open in 2016 for Mr. Trump to fill it by appointing Justice Neil M. Gorsuch.

He said the Republicans also “stole” the seat left vacant by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg when Mr. Trump appointed Justice Amy Coney Barrett days before the November election instead of allowing President Biden to fill the seat.

The Judiciary Act of 2021 expands the high court from nine justices to 13. The Democratic lawmakers reasoned 13 was a proper number because there are 13 federal circuit courts, allowing for a single justice to oversee appeals from each one.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said she hasn’t seen the actual legislation, stopping shy of endorsing it, but noted she supports the bottom line.

But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, said she would not be bringing the bill to the floor, instead waiting to see the suggestions of a commission created last week by Mr. Biden to study the Supreme Court suggests.

The Supreme Court has had nine justices since 1869.

While the author thinks the vaccines are ‘safe and effective’ he (and I) have the same questions that Carlson asked.

Tucker Carlson Responds to Fauci: Man, I Was Just Asking a Question

Always cruising for a fight, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson hit back at Dr. Anthony Fauci, who accused the host of peddling vaccine conspiracy theories on CNN yesterday. It stems from Carlson’s lengthy commentary about the vaccines, whether they’re safe, and whether they’re effective. Do I agree with Carlson’s commentary about the J&J vaccine and its safety concerns? Not really, but that’s about it. I disagree with it. I’m not calling for him to be banned or anything. I also get that this commentary was actually what millions of Americans are thinking right now as the Johnson and Johnson vaccine was paused over concerns about blood clots. It’s only six cases. There have been nearly 7 million doses administered. It’s safe. All three vaccines are effective. You’re more likely to form clots by taking birth control pills or smoking than if you had this vaccine injected into your body. The panic caused isn’t Tucker’s fault. It’s the medical experts thinking we need to hit the brakes and create more vaccine hesitancy over the data point that 1 in 1 million might have an adverse reaction.

The questions posed are: “If this ‘vaccine’ is *that* safe (less adverse reactions than commonly used drugs) why has it been pulled from use? Could the CDC & FDA be lying? naaaahhhh

But where Carlson did hit on is what everyone, vaccinated and unvaccinated, sees on a daily basis from the COVID czars. If these vaccines are effective, then why aren’t we acting like it? Hence, his lengthy commentary and response to Fauci hitting at him for supposedly being a detriment to public health.

Mr. Fauci has zero grasp of the damage he’s caused for months. The endless flip-flopping and pervasive attachment to trying to have it both ways on protocols have led to confusion and contradiction on an epic scale. It’s to the point where he should be kept off-camera, though you know he loves it. All Fauci has done over the past months is undermine public health and safety by giving us half-assed medical assessments. He’s also doled out science fiction that Ray Bradbury would probably have liked.

But weren’t we told by the demoncraps that the wall was racist and a moral outrage? Why didn’t SloJoe drop the suit?

Biden Admin Wins ‘Immediate Possession’ Of Private Land To Expand Border Wall

The federal government won the right to take immediate possession of private land along the United States-Mexico border in order to continue construction of the border wall — and it does not appear the Biden administration is giving it back to landowners.

“The federal government can take ‘immediate possession’ of a Texas family’s land along the US-Mexico border after a years-long court battle, a federal judge has ruled — a move at odds with President Joe Biden’s pledge to halt wall construction,” CNN reported Wednesday. “Tuesday’s ruling from Judge Micaela Alvarez of the Texas Southern District Court was a blow to the Cavazos family, who for years have been fighting to keep the land that’s been passed down for generations.”

The federal government, the outlet noted, “filed the motion for possession in 2020, sought ‘to construct, install, operate, and maintain roads, fencing, vehicle barriers, security lighting, cameras, sensors, and related structures designed to help secure the United States/Mexico border within the State of Texas.’”

Previously, most of the border wall had been constructed on land owned by the federal government, but during the Trump administration, the government sought to take control of swaths of private land so that it could build in missing segments of the border wall; eventually, then-President Donald Trump wanted a wall across the full southern border.

Although President Joe Biden halted construction on the border wall with an executive order, signed on the first day of his presidency, the federal government did not drop the lawsuit, the landowners — who told CNN they voted for the Democrat — said.

How to Start a War
Joe Biden, and those around him, seem determined to upset the peace they inherited.

Wars often arise from uncertainty. When strong countries appear weak, truly weaker ones take risks they otherwise would not.

Sloppy braggadocio and serial promises of restraint can trigger wars, too. Empty tough talk can needlessly egg on aggressors. But mouthing utopian bromides convinces bullies that their targets are too sophisticated to counter aggression.

Sometimes announcing “a new peace process” without any ability to bring either novel concessions or pressures only raises false hopes — and furor.

Every new American president is tested to determine whether the United States can still protect friends such as Europe, Japan, South Korea, and Israel. And will the new commander in chief deter U.S. enemies Iran and North Korea — and keep China and Russia from absorbing their neighbors?

Joe Biden, and those around him, seem determined to upset the peace they inherited.

The reported rate of problems with this drug are in quite smaller number than many other drugs that have been in use for decades, and are accepted as ‘safe and effective’ by the goobermint health agencies. Yet, they’re stopping use ‘…out of an abundance of caution‘?
Sorry, something stinks and we’re not in Denmark.
Could their actually be many ‘adverse events’ to the J&J injection?
Could it be that the bureaucraps are scared to death that if that info gets out that more questions will be raised about the other ‘vaccines’?

It’s a shame the investigative media that have the time and resources to do that real investigation into this seem to be taking a cue from Kamala Harris’ noted past, and performing something different to this administration

COVID Vaccination Program in Disarray as CDC and FDA Order a Halt to Using the Johnson & Johnson Vaccine

Earlier [yesterday] the Food and Drug Administration, along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, announced that they were temporarily halting the use of the one-and-done Johnson & Johnson vaccine for the dreaded Wuhan virus.

The official announcement claims this suspension from use was the result of 6 blood clots out of nearly 7 million doses, but this explanation comes after several states had suspended the use of that vaccine over unspecified adverse events.



The coronavirus pandemic was a black-swan event the likes of which this planet hadn’t seen in almost a hundred years. It caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and crashed the global economy, resulting in the largest socioeconomic change since 2008. It was, in short, not good. Yet there are pockets of public health experts and corporate media pundits who seem content to play out an endless cycle of pandemic porn. This runs contrary to what the majority of the population wants to watch and how most Americans are choosing to live their lives.

As COVID cases and deaths in Michigan soar, under a #girlboss governor who received endless praise in New York Times puff-pieces, the free state of Texas is almost completely open, with full baseball stadiums, no mask mandates — and a steadily declining COVID death rate. Dr Anthony Fauci must be scratching his head at how this could possibly be. Of course, Fauci is the same expert who praised Andrew Cuomo’s handling of managing the pandemic as well. He’s one of several public health officials who see their time at the podium possibly coming to an end. His tenure skipping from media outlet to media outlet, offering mixed messages on vaccines and a return to normalcy, is soon to expire.

When Business Insider asked Fauci if he saw himself attending indoor dining anytime soon, the good doctor said no, even though he is fully vaccinated. Movie theaters? That was also a no. Airplane travel? Nope. We don’t know if Fauci was speaking as a leading health expert and the top epidemiologist in the country, or simply an obsessive compulsive and raging hypochondriac. That’s the problem: Anthony Fauci has wrapped himself in a cocoon of personal skepticism on everything from sporting games to weddings, apparently unaware that these events have resumed over most of the country.

But Fauci is not alone in issuing mixed messaging about getting the country back on track. Several mainstream media outlets aren’t quite ready to move on either. MSNBC’s Joy Reid (or was it a hacker?) tweeted that ‘I too am one vax down, but even when I get the second shot, I am too “scurred” to be out there wildin. No flying and no indoor activities for me. Nope!’ The Washington Post ran a perspective piece declaring ‘I’m vaccinated, but I’m really not ready to leave my pandemic cocoon.’ Poor you!

Earlier this week when the FDA suspended all doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine over six cases of possible blood clotting in seven million doses (literally less one in a million), Fauci said they were simply following the science and could not confirm whether the J&J vaccine would even be made available again. This is sure to reverberate throughout the country; a considerably-sized portion of the population is already vaccine-hesitant.

Most of us are already exasperated by mixed messaging from every government agency in charge of public perception. The FAA and CDC both said vaccinated people should still not fly on airplanes, before pulling back and then declaring it safe to do so. President Biden, who has been fully vaccinated for four months, still wanders around in a mask, as does the Vice President who shadows him at every turn. The media and the Biden administration want to tell everyone that the vaccines work, but are unwilling to demonstrate the perks of getting vaccinated. These people are not interested in returning to normal by the end of the year. That’s saying nothing of the antics by national teachers’ unions attempting to extort the public before allowing their members to return to classrooms.

Perhaps the personal anxiety being displayed in the pages of the New York Times and Washington Post is simply lifestyle bias: journalists in DC and New York perceive the entire country to be boxed in as they are; they struggle to accept that Florida and Texas have been open for months. Perhaps the Biden administration sees an opening for a broad and restructuring opportunity to push through an ambitious agenda for the country on the back of the pandemic and doesn’t want to let a good crisis go to waste. Perhaps Anthony Fauci sees the curtain falling on his moment in the spotlight.

One thing seems obvious as more and more people become immunized against both the virus and hesitant elites — life is going to resume whether the ruling class wants it to or not. As the institutional figureheads find excuse after excuse to prolong the pandemic, their several messaging missteps mean their words aren’t having the intended effect. Soon enough, the politicians, pundits and ‘experts’ will see that the American public is content to leave them behind and tune them out.

In case you hadn’t noticed, the offices where these jerks work has been completely fenced in with barbed wire. There are armed guards all over the Capitol. Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and Ilhan Omar are being protected by the very men and women they claim to revile.

And on that note:

Pelosi talks “increasing the size of the Capitol Police force” after deadly incident.

Police for me, but not for thee……..


President Biden sent his nomination to the Senate on Monday for retired ATF agent and Giffords policy advisor David Chipman to head the agency. Pro-gun groups call it a mistake of epic proportions.

The nomination for Chipman comes days after Biden described the vocal gun control proponent as “the right person, at this moment, for this important agency.”

After a career with the federal government’s gun regulator that spanned from 1988 to 2012, which included serving as “case agent” in Branch Davidian trial while working in the Waco, Texas, field office, Chipman pursued a new career with first the Everytown group– back when it was just called Mayors Against Illegal Guns– and then Giffords, where he is currently listed as a “senior policy advisor” with expertise in so-called “Ghost Guns” and “Assault Weapons.”

Opposing Chipman’s nomination so far is a field of firearms industry groups and pro-gun organizations, who argue Biden’s pick is a horrible fit.

Florida appeals court upholds law on local gun regulations. 

TALLAHASSEE – In a win for Republican lawmakers and the National Rifle Association, an appeals court Friday upheld a 2011 state law that threatens tough penalties if city and county officials approve gun-related regulations.

A three-judge panel of the 1st District Court of Appeal rejected a challenge to the NRA-backed law by 30 cities, three counties and more than 70 local officials. A Leon County circuit judge in 2019 found that parts of the law were unconstitutional, spurring Attorney General Ashley Moody and Gov. Ron DeSantis to appeal.

Florida since 1987 has barred cities and counties from passing regulations that are stricter than state firearms laws, and the penalties in the 2011 law were designed to strengthen that “preemption.” The law, for example, could lead to local officials facing $5,000 fines and potential removal from office for passing gun regulations.

Local governments and officials filed three lawsuits challenging the 2011 law after the February 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland that killed 17 people. The lawsuits were ultimately consolidated in Leon County circuit court.

The local governments and officials did not challenge the underlying 1987 preemption law but contended the penalties in the 2011 law were unconstitutional. Friday’s ruling focused on arguments that the 2011 law should be rejected because of two legal concepts known as “government function immunity” and “legislative immunity.”

Judge Susan Kelsey, writing for the appellate panel, rejected the arguments and pointed to the state’s “superior authority in this context.”

Letting Hunter Biden Off Is A Message To Us Peasants

The fact that the loser spawn of Grandpa Badfinger is thumbing his coke-caked nose at the justice system represents not merely the tacky machinations of a crusty pol protecting the family Fredo. It has a deeper and more cynical purpose – to show us that our overlords are unaccountable and that the law is now merely another implement in the regime’s toolkit of oppression. They are telling us that they and their scumbag progeny can do whatever they want, but that we can’t.

In the short term, this is infuriating. In the long term, it could bring down the system our garbage ruling caste inherited.

They are throwing it in our faces, thinking it’s a good plan to force us to submit.

“If you don’t have it in your hands, it’s not really yours”

After FBI seizure of safe deposit boxes in Beverly Hills, legal challenges mount

A retired flooring contractor was watching television one night last month when he saw a news report about federal agents raiding U.S. Private Vaults, a store in a Beverly Hills strip mall that let customers rent safe deposit boxes anonymously.

He knew the place well. It’s near his home and, for years, he has rented a long, narrow box there to keep about $60,000 in cash, gold and silver. It also contained the title certificate for his pickup truck.

The 69-year-old man, who declined to be named because of privacy and safety concerns, said he has kept the stockpile of currency and precious metals since getting spooked by the 2008 financial crash. “You never know what’s going to happen, the way the world’s going today,” he said.

That financial net vanished — at least for now — in the raid.

A sign with a url for an FBI website is taped to window behind which can be seen safe deposit boxes

Armed with a warrant, agents with the FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration pulled each of the store’s several hundred boxes out of the walls and seized all the contents. It took five days to inventory everything and take it to an undisclosed warehouse. Prosecutors said drugs, weapons and stacks of currency that drew the attention of drug-sniffing dogs were discovered.

To reclaim property, people must identify themselves to federal authorities and prove they are the rightful owners of the items — a bar that may prove challenging to clear when dealing with cash, gold, heirloom jewelry and other undocumented items.

The raid has set off legal challenges from five box holders who say the government violated the constitution’s ban on unreasonable search and seizure.

U.S. District Judge R. Gary Klausner on Tuesday declined one customer’s request for an emergency order that would have blocked prosecutors from using the boxes’ contents as evidence in the investigation. It also would have stopped the FBI from requiring box holders to identify themselves as a condition of getting their valuables back.

Klausner, however, left open the possibility that the sweeping nature of the seizures violated the box renters’ rights.

‘Why Are They In Homeland Security Bags?’: Rep. Louie Gohmert Finds Signs Directing Illegal Immigrants To Asylum.

Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert posted video Friday of signs directing illegal immigrants to a Border Patrol processing facility.

Gohmert mentioned some of the dangers of crossing the river in that area — namely snakes and tarantulas — and noted that in spite of the risks, large numbers of particularly women and children were crossing anyway.

“Who is putting up the signs pointing to asylum at the U.S. border in Texas and why are they in Homeland Security bags? #BidenBorderCrisis,” Gohmert tweeted along with a video of himself at the U.S.-Mexico border.


In the video, Gohmert pointed out a sign hung on a tree near where he said illegal immigrants were coming out of the river. That sign, he said, gave directions to a Border Patrol processing station a few kilometers away.

“It’s amazing how many women and children are coming right now, just because the president is promising them amnesty down the road,” Gohmert said. “But the great irony here is theses are on Homeland — they put these messages in Homeland Security bags so they’ll stay nice and dry and fresh for the thousands and thousands of people that are coming up from the river right over here.”

“Tarantulas, snakes and all kinds of stuff around here,” Gohmert continued, adding, “This is no place people ought to be coming in.”

President Joe Biden’s administration has been criticized for removing former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, as critics say he is responsible for the surge of migrants that has only grown since his inauguration.


Many conservatives are pushing back hard against a series of executive orders on firearms that the Biden administration announced on Wednesday. I don’t doubt that Biden would ban or severely limit private gun ownership if he could, but what is striking about these specific orders is how trivial they are.

Biden frames his actions in terms of gun violence being a “public health epidemic.” He refers to the recent Boulder and Atlanta shootings, and says that “cities across the country are in the midst of a historic spike in homicides….” Ironically, that is true. But why? Not because of any lack of firearms laws and regulations, which are legion. Rather, because of the incessant and demagogic attacks on law enforcement that the Democrats themselves have perpetrated. And of course, none of the measures that Biden proposes to take would have any effect on urban violence.

So what are the actions being taken via executive order?

1) The Department of Justice will issue a proposed rule–content unspecified–to limit the sale of “ghost guns,” i.e. firearms that are bought as a kit and assembled by the user. This is supposedly a problem because such guns lack a serial number, which makes them harder to trace.

2) DOJ will issue another rule “clarifying when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turns a pistol into a short-barreled rifle subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act.” Keeping a firm grip on your pistol will also, as the White House release puts it, “make a firearm more stable and accurate.” But a rifle is a rifle and a pistol is a pistol.

3) DOJ will publish a model “red flag” law for states. Such laws establish court procedures whereby individuals who are deemed dangerous can be deprived of firearms even though they have not actually done anything wrong. I believe several states have passed such legislation. In any event, DOJ publishing a model law will not have any practical effect.

4) The federal government will “[invest] in evidence-based community violence interventions.” In other words, slide billions of dollars to Democratic Party constituencies. This will have little or effect on violence, via firearms or otherwise.

5) DOJ will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking. “Trafficking” is undefined, but I assume it refers generally to illegal gun sales, e.g. to felons.

6) Biden will nominate David Chipman to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. This has incensed some gun rights advocates, as Chipman apparently has a history of supporting extreme and unconstitutional gun control measures. But who else would anyone expect Biden to appoint to run ATF?

As I said, the striking thing about these proposed measures is how trivial they are. No one seriously expects that they will do anything to reduce violence. If the Democrats were serious about reducing the homicide rate, they would support law enforcement instead of undermining it, and they would run district attorneys who would imprison criminals rather than letting them go. But they would rather engage in symbolic posturing on guns than take effective action to protect Americans who are suffering at the hands of violent criminals.

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation today warned the Biden Administration that if it steps over its legal authority with any executive action or order regarding the constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms, legal action is a certainty.

President Joe Biden has announced what an administration official calls “an initial set of actions” on gun control that include both executive and legislative action. His proposals will cover so-called “ghost guns,” a proposed national “red flag” law and incentives to the states to adopt similar state-level measures and change the designation of stabilizing braces, which are used by many shooters on AR15-type semiautomatic pistols.

“The devil will be in the details,” acknowledged SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “Our legal team will review them and we are prepared to file suit if Biden and his administration steps over their legal authority.”

Gottlieb recalled that Biden has been an ardent gun control advocate during his entire career on Capitol Hill. He included gun control as a major component of his presidential campaign last year, and published reports say he has met with representatives from gun prohibition advocacy groups since taking office.

“Nobody from the Biden administration has reached out to us or any other rights organization to my knowledge, which certainly clarifies Biden’s approach to firearms regulation,” Gottlieb said. “He came into office talking about unity, but he just declared war on tens of millions of law-abiding gun owners who have committed no crimes.”

Biden’s nomination of David Chipman to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is another alarming development, Gottlieb said. The nomination requires Senate confirmation.

“Joe Biden just nominated a man now working for the Giffords gun control lobbying group to head the agency responsible for gun law enforcement,” Gottlieb observed. “That’s not just a bad signal to gun owners. The president has essentially raised the black flag, and we see nothing positive for American gun owners or the firearms industry.”

Not that any of that will matter. As it stands, without at least 10 Republicans crossing over to support the bills in the Senate–something unlikely to happen just because President Biden called for it–none of that is going to happen. Even without that, though, we’re going to have a lot to deal with from just these executive orders.

Biden Lies About Background Checks & More During Anti-Gun Presser

Well, ladies and gents, the wait is over.

We all knew this day would come. Today, we have it. President Joe Biden has issued a number of executive orders relating to gun control.

After all, gun control groups have been pushing this since his inauguration. Biden himself campaigned on gun control, so it’s unsurprising. All that was left up for debate was what he’d do and just when.

Now, we know.

Indiana Senate leaders kill ‘constitutional carry’ bill despite wide GOP caucus support

Republican Senate leaders in Indiana have killed a so-called ‘constitutional carry’ bill that would have nixed carry permits for handguns in Indiana.

The bill had seemed to have significant momentum until recently. The move comes despite more than half of the Senate Republican caucus signing on as co-sponsors to the bill, which already had passed the Indiana House.

Under the proposal, certain offenders still would have been prohibited from carrying handguns.

Fort Wayne Republican Sen. Liz Brown, the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee where the bill has been sitting, declined to give the bill a hearing before the deadline, effectively killing the legislation.

Instead, in the last week bills can be heard in committee, she gave a hearing to a resolution emphasizing the Indiana Senate’s commitment “to protect the constitutional right to keep and bear arms.”
