The Right To Remain Silent

poemsandponderings

     In case there was any question on my view of the current immigration problem, read this:

Protect Our Borders! Protect Our Borders!

The Right To Remain Silent

Don’t speak to me

about your rights,

if you sneak through

the fence at night.

Or if you cross the border

in a van,

driven by

the greedy man.

Or if you sail

on board a raft,

or pay your way

with bribe or graft.

You cannot steal

what’s given free,

to those

who do it properly.

So, the only right

you have I see,

is the right to leave

so please feel free.

Then if and when

you should come back,

with the legal papers

in your pack,

then I will listen

to your speech,

about your rights

all, and each.

In general, “Get out of my face” thought, although I did see a “Ready for Hillary – 2016” sticker the other day, and I wept in prayer.

I live 10 minutes from the Franklin Regional High School where the stabbings occurred last week. What could cause a decent young man to flip out like this? “Water cooler talk” around here this week has focused on “bullying.” Yet, it…

Croatia: Benghazy Scrubber Scrubs Western Balkans

This never made the US news!

Croatia, the War, and the Future

Croatia Forum

Lately, Victoria Nuland, US Assistant Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasia, is best known, or, rather, notorious, for her role in objecting to the initial set of the Benghazi attack talking points when she reportedly asked that references to al Qaeda and previous CIA warnings about threats posed to U.S. diplomats in Libya be scrubbed from the document. I.e., she is said to have demanded that (accurate) assessments of terrorist involvement be scrubbed, along with references to (accurate) intelligence warnings about the deteriorating security situation in Benghazi leading up to the 9/11/2012 attack on US diplomatic compound in which four Americans were murdered. Nuland’s role provided the closest thing to smoking-gun evidence of a cover up.

Then I assume all of us remember when in January/February of this year on YouTube, there was uploaded an audio recording of a confidential telephone conversation between Nuland and U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine…
