One of the toughest and most dangerous jobs in America is being a Border Patrol agent. Every year you hear of a number of them being k-lled or injured for one reason or another. The overwhelming majority of those cases are tied to those breaking the law by either trying to come here illegally or by moving g-ns, drugs, and people over the Mexican border. The men and women who sign up for this duty are nothing short of heroes in my book. And they keep doing their job even when bureaucrats nullify immigration laws and basically throw them under the bus for a political agenda. It’s a thankless job and it just got worse thanks to a liberal Ninth Circuit Court judge.
It’s bad enough that illegal immigrants are still gaining access to this country by crossing the border. They are a danger to these agents and to Americans in general. Once here, many claim welfare, work, education, to be counted in the Census, healthcare, and citizenship for their children. You can add to that list the dangerous new right for illegal aliens to sue Border Patrol agents for simply doing their jobs.
This one puzzles me because this judge was appointed by Ronald Reagan and he is considered conservative. He sure isn’t acting like it. Judge Andrew Kleinfeld ruled this week that border agent Lonnie Swartz is not covered by qualified immunity, thereby allowing a Mexican woman to sue him for sh-oting her teenage son during border violence in 2012. In other words, for doing his job and protecting himself and his fellow officers, this judge says the mother of an illegal alien that was trying to kill them can sue this officer. This should rock you on your heels because what it shows is a rogue legal system that is trying to seize control of our foreign and military policies. This has the potential to set precedent for family members of Mexicans involved in drug cartels and violence to hinder border security and the rule of law even further.
From Conservative Review:
“In October 2012, Agent Lonnie Swartz shot a number of rounds through a border fence in Nogales, an Arizona-Mexico border town, and killed 16-year-old Jose Antonio Elena Rodríguez, who was part of a group throwing rocks at border agents after they confronted individuals climbing a fence and smuggling drugs. Swartz was prosecuted under regular criminal law and acquitted earlier this year by a jury on charges of second-degree murder. The jury was deadlocked on charges of involuntary manslaughter, and there may be a new trial.
“Whether Swartz should have used lethal force in this case is tough to judge based on the details available, but it underscores just how dangerous our border is and the failure of our government to deal with the problems on the Mexican side of the border.
“As Breitbart Texas has reported over the years, when agents are isolated and surrounded by rock-throwers, it can’t categorically be dismissed as “kids throwing pebbles.” And as the local border patrol union pointed out, the deceased in this case doesn’t exactly appear to be a nonviolent Boy Scout. Let’s not forget that the gang life at our border in which some of these teens are reared is every bit as violent as the worst acts of ISIS.
“Whether Swartz rightfully or wrongfully pulled the trigger is a question that our military and police often face under the duress of chaotic circumstances. Those delicate cases need to be dealt with by the agency leaders, as guided by Congress. When appropriate, they can bring charges against bad actors, as has been the case in many instances. This case is no different.”
In my opinion, it is ludicrous for any judge to allow these agents to be sued for doing their jobs. If they are reprimanded for something, that should come under the oversight of the Border Patrol, the government, and our legal system. Those men were throwing rocks at these officers. Don’t let anyone tell you different… rocks are deadly weapons and can kill if they hit someone. Should the agents have just let these violent criminals come over the fence with their weapons and drugs? Agent Lonnie Swartz was acquitted over this, but because the radical Ninth Circuit thought that was unfair, they will let this officer be sued for something he was found innocent of. That’s not justice, it’s weaponizing lawfare.
This kind of ruling is commonplace for the Ninth Circuit Court and many of their rulings are overturned for this reason. This is an abuse of power and it’s not even remotely constitutional. Kleinman conceded that “Border Patrol agents protect the United States from unlawful entries and terrorist threats,” which are activities that “help guarantee our national security,” but then speculated that “holding Swartz liable for this constitutional violation would not meaningfully deter Border Patrol agents from performing their duties.” First off, as I said, I do not believe the ruling is constitutional. But beyond that, claiming that the ruling would not deter Border Patrol agents from performing their duties is laughable. If officers fear being sued into the ground for doing their jobs, they are likely not to do their jobs. See California.
We seem to now have judges determining national security policy and that should never be the case. Similarly, these same activist judges are trying to undermine executive power from the president constantly. We should be solely concerned with our own national sovereignty. But this judge snarked that “the only foreign policy concern that we can glean from the briefs is the need to avoid violating Mexican sovereignty.” He then had the nerve to cite an amicus brief filed by the government of Mexico. I think he is confused about what the term ‘sovereignty’ means and which country he is a citizen of.
This ruling will work its way to the Supreme Court and most likely result in a ruling in favor of Agent Swartz. But the left, Mexico and the Ninth Circuit Court will keep pulling these stunts until someone steps in and breaks up that radical court so these types of incidents stop occurring. A ruling such as this screams that we are no longer a sovereign nation and that our Border Patrol agents are the enemy, not our protectors. That’s insane. The ruling ignores Supreme Court law and tries to control the separation of powers between the judiciary and the political branches of government.
The Border Patrol should feel safe to do their jobs and know that Americans have their back as well. Our Constitution and laws were meant to protect American citizens, not to enable foreigners who are intent on hurting or killing law enforcement and American citizens.
Trump Sent Unapologetic Message To Entire World That Could Erase Obama From History [OPINION]
We are truly living in historic times in Israel’s history. We are watching history unfold before our eyes, one that is cause for great celebration around the world.
Not only has President Donald Trump chosen to withdraw from the disastrous Obama Iran nuclear deal, but we are on the eve of the momentous opening of the American embassy in Jerusalem – a move that recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and a move greatly appreciated by the people of Israel and most Jews in the world.
Although most presidents we have seen during our lifetimes have promised to do what’s right and recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel President Donald Trump did and today our new embassy in the Capital City of Jerusalem is now officially opened for business.
With this move, along with last week’s move of withdrawing the U.S. from the debacle that was the Iran Nuclear deal which Obama put together during his weak presidency, President Trump has shown the world that America is back. And we aren’t about to take a secondary role ever again.
With Obama’s Iran deal he destroyed 70 years of bipartisan U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. His delusional deal abandoned Israel and Egypt and alienated the Sunni Muslims in the moderate Arab states. By making sure they all would have to deal with a nuclear Iran.
Iran is the leading state sponsor of terror and exports dangerous missiles while it supports terrorist proxies and militias like Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Taliban all over the world. The idea that Iran ever sought a peaceful nuclear energy program is absurd and 100% illogical. And even worse, when Obama decided to ignore the slaughter of Christians and the so-called red line in Syria which he himself drafted, he opened the door for Russia to become a dominant regional player in the Middle East. How’s that for Russian Collusion?
Here is more on this month’s events via Fox News:
“We are at a truly historic moment in Israel’s history, one that is cause for great celebration. Not only has President Donald Trump chosen to withdraw from the disastrous Obama Iran nuclear deal, but we are on the eve of the momentous opening of the American embassy in Jerusalem – a move that recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and a move greatly appreciated by the people of Israel.
President Trump’s pullout from the Iran deal, although expected, became a virtual certainty when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu proved through Israel’s intelligence agency Mossad that Iran had been lying to the world as it continued to enrich uranium and develop nuclear weapons. Iranian documents uncovered by that same intel agency are proof positive that Iran lied. Iran? Lie? Shock.
On Tuesday, the day of the withdrawal, bomb shelters opened up in the Golan Heights and the Israeli army was on high alert as Israel braced for imminent attack.
In Israel, as we proceeded from Haifa to the Golan Heights, there were no sirens. School buses and taxis continued to run. In Tiberias at night, we heard the undeniable sound of rockets. At breakfast, we found out that that indeed there had been an Iranian rocket offensive toward Israel from inside Syria. Israel responded with strategic precision, targeting Iranian munitions storage warehouses, logistics headquarters and intel systems within its proxy Syria. Israel does what Israel needs to do.
He not only sends a message to Iran but to Russia as well, that the U.S. is back as a dominant regional player after the Obama years. He recognizes the reality that everyone else in the west willingly blinds themselves to – and that is that Jerusalem is the one and only capital of Israel.
On Saturday, Iranians marched against the United States, protesting President Trump’s decision to withdraw from their nuclear deal. Maybe they should consider protesting that the $150 billion Obama gave them in cash wasn’t used to benefit them, but instead to support both Iran’s nuclear development as well as its military budget which has grown by almost 40 percent.
Obama’s Iran deal destroyed 70 years of bipartisan U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. His delusional deal abandoned Israel and Egypt, the largest Arab country, and alienated the Sunni Muslims in the moderate Arab states, guaranteeing they would face a nuclear Iran.
Iran, the leading state sponsor of terror, exports dangerous missiles and supports terrorist proxies and militias like Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Taliban. The idea that it seeks a peaceful nuclear energy program is absurd to anyone with even half a brain. And as Obama turned his back on the slaughter of Christians and ignored his own red line in the Syria sand, he allowed Russia through this vacuum to become a dominant regional player in the Middle East.
Donald Trump’s withdrawal from that deal was the United States standing shoulder to shoulder with our ally Israel against the rest of the world. It sent a huge signal to Iran and Shia Muslims that we stood with the more moderate Sunnis. And although Great Britain and France had joined the United States earlier in taking out a Syrian weapons facility, they chose this time to stand with Iran against Israel and the United States.
Trump has reassured the world that his word is worth more than former U.S. presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama, all of whom made the promise to move the American embassy to Jerusalem. His word is worth more than any treaty and stronger than any UN resolution. He promised and he delivered.
He not only sends a message to Iran but to Russia as well, that the U.S. is back as a dominant regional player after the Obama years. He recognizes the reality that everyone else in the west willingly blinds themselves to – and that is that Jerusalem is the one and only capital of Israel. Trump is simply putting his imprimatur on what has been history in the last 2500 years: that Jerusalem has only been the capital of one people’s country or kingdom, and that people is the Jews. And that country is and was Israel.
The empires that tried to destroy Israel and its capitol Jerusalem are long gone, yet the Jews still speak the same language and practice the same religion, which is the foundation of our own Judeo-Christian nation. Donald Trump sent Iranians who are the descendants of Persia a message to reflect on their own history, and that it was the king of Persia who, 1000 years before Mohammad was even born, said that Jerusalem was the capital of the Jewish people’s country.
There will be no Ottoman empires or Shia nations that will destroy Jerusalem any longer. Donald Trump recognized history. He, like King Cyrus before him, fulfilled the biblical prophecy of the gods worshipped by Jews, Christians and, yes, Muslims, that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish state and that the Jewish people deserve a righteous, free and sovereign Israel.”
Conservative ‘View’ Host Has Had It – Sets Record Straight About Trump To Mouthy Costars [WATCH]
The liberal ladies on “The View” have run their mouths for long enough, trashing President Donald Trump about anything and everything. The catty hosts don’t typically operate on facts but have just met their match with their new co-host who is a proud conservative.
Former Fox News anchor, Abby Huntsman, hasn’t been on the show long, but she’s already had enough of their trash talk and lies, particularly with one disturbing claim about Trump.
Huntsman didn’t hold back when she set the record straight once and for all about our president, blindsiding her costars with the perfect response.
Entertainment reporter Perez Hilton is about as much of a fan of Trumps as Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar on “The View,” which is to say that he detests the president and probably can’t provide a logical reason for it. So, when he caught wind of what just went down on the show between the women and their new co-host who is their political counterpart, he reported on Abby’s defense of the president in a distasteful and very angry manner.
Waiting for @WhoopiGoldberg and Joy Behar to be fired for their daly disgusting remarks since @megynkelly was terminated from @TODAYshow for a single defense of #blackface. Or is that not how this works?#KAG #LiberalLunacy #LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder

Perez Hilton wrote:
After ray of sunshine Sara Haines left, she was replaced by another conservative voice to stir things up, Abby Huntsman from Fox & Friends.
She brought that same kind of rational thinking to her first big dust-up on The View Thursday, over Donald Trump making the ludicrous claim that the nearly 3,000-person death count following Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico was MADE UP TO HURT HIM POLITICALLY.
Cohost Sunny Hostin made the very understandable declaration that Trump doesn’t care about the Puerto Rican people.
Considering how he basically told them they had to fend for themselves and let hundreds die through inaction, a pretty understandable sentiment.
That’s when Abby jumped in and said: “I don’t think that’s fair, and I don’t think it’s fair, like yesterday, to compare him to a dictator. That’s comparing him to a Hitler-“
NO. We gon’ stop you right there. Not sure how someone got to this table with such remedial debate skills, but that argument is total B.S.
If we said “Our cat acts just like a dog” you couldn’t then say we compared our dog to Lassie and start asking if the cat ever pulled Timmy out of a well.
Saying Trump acts like a dictator in general is NOT the same statement as saying he acts like very specific dictator Adolf Hitler. Got it, Abby?
Well, actually, Perez…a lot of big liberals and major left-leaning media outlets compare Trump to Hitler and defend why they believe it’s accurate. The Washington Post wrote a piece headlined, “It’s not wrong to compare Trump’s America to the Holocaust. Here’s why,” hateful progressive filmmaker Michael Moore compares the president to Hitler in his his new documentary, and these are just the start of this common and very wrong comparison.
“How ironic is it that our progressive, leftist, Democratic-leaning media would compare President Donald Trump wanting to secure our borders to Nazis who didn’t recognize the borders of any nation on Earth. These talking heads have no shame,” David Baker for the Las Vegas Journal-Review wrote.
But I digress. Let’s get back to what else politically sanctimonious Perez Hilton had to say on the matter. Brace yourself, it only gets more nauseating in his attack on Abby’s assertion.
Now let’s actually talk the point about comparing Trump to a dictator. Is it fair? Well…
- Trump attacks the free press any time they’re negative to him and embraces outlets that are only positive, a classic stick-and-carrot intimidation technique to make ALL the stories about him good.
- Trump tells blatant, easily disprovable lies (like the one you’re covering RIGHT NOW), creating his own reality in which he is a beloved, idealized leader who is always successful.
- Trump vilifies The Other, in this case whipping up fear of immigrants by pushing stories of MS-13, etc — leading his base to mistrust other races and nationalities, a classic path toward nationalism.
- Trump expects the justice system to serve his needs, attacking the DOJ, FBI, and intelligence apparatus for following through with investigations of anyone on his team and simultaneously demanding investigations into his political enemies.
Gurl, if that doesn’t sound comparable to a dictator to you, maybe open a history book. Or read about the current exploits of the authoritarians Trump likes to praise so much, like Kim Jong-Un or Vladimir Putin.
But we’ll let Abby finish that thought…
“That’s comparing him to a Hitler, someone that gassed their own people, that starved their own people, someone that orders for thousands of their own people to die. Do you think President Trump was in the Oval Office saying ‘How can we make it worse for Puerto Ricans? How can we make it so more people die?’”
Obviously no one thinks he said that. But NOT CARING about someone’s well-being, which is what Sunny accused him of, is not the same as actively trying to hurt them.
This is just too much to take. Liberals seem to have a tendency of contradicting themselves and Perez’s interpretation of Abby’s retort feels like that has happened once again.
