I love the smell of burning liberals [in the US interpretation of that label] in the morning.

The "intelligence arm" of the Social Justice Warriors is not too switched on.

False information in the US and a denial of the right to free speech and assembly in the UK. I trust that any of you in the UK are allowed to read this without the risk of imprisonment. Fortunately your so called Justice system doesn't have any force down here and we are still largely able to call out the abuse of law.

Unless there is something we are not being told this action against Robinson is one of the greatest attacks on free speech in the UK in recent history.

Re AussieD link. It is quite possible to justify an arrest for behaviour likely to cause a breach of the peace. However that clearly implies a judgement that the people around the courtroom ( primarily Muslims) were unusually prone to violent outbursts (the opposite of what we've been told) and it only merits a slap on the wrist from a magistrate, possibly after a night in the cooler.
As to the contempt for which he was actually sentenced, I would need to listen to all his reporting to make a judgement. I can only say I am surprised that the judge actually had the time to do this.
As to the reporting restrictions, either the judge was naive in the extreme and thought they would fulfill their stated purpose- despite the initial arrest being live on TV. Or he found a devious means of ensuring that the whole world knew.

About the photo, file it under stories that are just too good to check out.

Obama was called, especially by liberals, the "deporter in chief". However, the Trump administration has taken things further by separating children from parents even though, no surprise, Trump is claiming otherwise:

"In early May, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced more stringent consequences for those crossing the border illegally. “If you are smuggling a child then we will prosecute you, and that child will be separated from you as required by law,” Sessions said."

Bob? You do realize deportation is a progression of events, yes? In short, deported and removed have different meanings in the process. In short, short, you can claim 750k deported, but means squat if they aren't removed.


"President Barack Obama has often been referred to by immigration groups as the "Deporter in Chief."

Between 2009 and 2015 his administration has removed more than 2.5 million people through immigration orders, which doesn’t include the number of people who "self-deported" or were turned away and/or returned to their home country at the border by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)."

We've had a problem with border crossings for decades now. NAFTA was supposed to help by boosting the Mexican economy, which has been in shambles at least as long. Instead, it put a large percentage of subsistence farmers out of business. During the Obama administration there were also large numbers of children fleeing political instability in South America, which is probably when the picture was taken.

Well Bob, per your second paragraph of 1442 you can't say "They weren't warned."

In my state there's a law say's "Thou shalt not drive without possessing a valid driver's license." Know what the charge is labelled on the ticket for a violation?

"Illegal Driver" primarily however there's been at least four instances I've seen where the cop wrote "Undocumented Driver."

So far as I'm aware nobody raises a stink over the language of the statute (well maybe the illegally undocumented scofflaws) as the statute has been severally published.

So I'd pose the question to you Bob, you want the persons sharing the interstates with you to be legal? And mind, in every single instance I'm aware of in which the noted language was used, those were US citizens.

I don't know what would appear on the ticket were the person so ticketed be a non-citizen; "Illegal Illegal Undocumented Undocumented Driver" perhaps?

I'd hope not as my state'd likely be paying a bunch of disability claims citing Writer's Cramp.


When I lived in southern California there were signs at the sides of the highway. You know those signs that have a silhouette of a deer on them so you know to be careful not to hit deer? The signs along the southern California highways had silhouettes of a man and woman all but dragging a child behind them. As far as I know the signs are still there.

I'm not going to go into my own ideas about immigration. My intent was only to point out how dishonest the premise of the 'Zero Hedge' piece is. I will say the Dixie Pixie AG threatening to separate children from parents does make him seem a bit more like Rumpelstiltskin, though.
