OK, how about we send about 100,000 Somalis back to their own stink-hole country?

Oh the con is long and deep. In the 1960s it was observed that US government representatives were nothing more than receptors for lobbying for money and favors. Now it is blatant and excessive. I ask The Gullibles: there are endless needs in the world. How much of your LIFESTYLE are you willing to give up to try to satisfy them all? Must we all be victims of The Con?

It makes me sick to my stomach to say this but well either send our money over there or someone will ship all of them to us. And I for one am well past sick to death of my Christian country being flooded by Muslim scum of the earth. I despise that religion and the sick, vicious degenerate people it produces. Enough!

Should have seen this coming. Minnesota has a vocal Somali population. Sounds like a good way to waste money. The federal government is expert at wasting money. No wonder we are so deep in debt. Wait until various Central America and South America populations start demanding federal aid for their home countries. If they want money for their home countries, they should return there. It's clear where their loyalties are.

Now, here's an opportunity to compromise. If the Minnesota Dems will sign on to the GOP US Border plans, I'm sure we can find a loose million or two for the Somalis. And we can even offer to have Rep. Omar travel (one-way) to make the aid delivery.

As a Navay man I had the "pleasure" of visiting Somalia. While there I was told by a Somali man that they don't like Black people from the US. I told him at least our country doesn't smell like goat, well you know the thing. Maybe that aid the corrupt democrats are demanding could be used to make a better sewage system.

House vote to impeach Homeland Security

Posted by Moritz55 2/6/2024 7:00:54 PM Post Reply
In a dramatic setback, House Republicans failed Tuesday to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, forced to shelve a high-profile priority — for now — after a few GOP lawmakers refused to go along with the party’s plan. The stunning roll call fell just a few votes short of impeaching Mayorkas, stalling the Republicans’ drive to punish the Biden administration over its handling of the U.S-Mexico border. With Democrats united against the charges, the Republicans needed almost every vote from their slim majority to approve the articles of impeachment. The House is likely to revisit plans to impeach Mayorkas, but next steps are highly uncertain.

The IRS said it is poised to reap hundreds of billions of dollars of additional tax revenue by going after overdue and unpaid taxes, far beyond what was previously anticipated, thanks to funding from the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). The new analysis, released Tuesday by the Treasury Department and the IRS, estimates that tax revenues are expected to rise by as much as $561 billion from 2024 to 2034, thanks to stepped-up enforcement made possible with money from the Democrats' IRA, which became law in August 2022.

President Joe Biden says a bill from Sens. James Lankford (R-OK), Chris Murphy (D-CT), and Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) is merely a precursor to ramming amnesty for millions of illegal aliens through Congress. During an address at the White House on Tuesday, Biden praised the Senate bill that would expand overall immigration to the United States by codifying his parole pipeline that has freed hundreds of thousands of border crossers into the nation’s interior. The bill would also increase legal immigration to the U.S., even as Biden has driven the nation’s foreign-born population to nearly 50 million — the largest ever in American history.

A new election will take place within the committee.

Why? A simple reason: Donald Trump,” Biden said during a public address on Tuesday. He claimed that Trump thinks the bill is “bad for him politically,” and, therefore, it is being opposed by Republicans in the House and Senate.
