How to Talk To People – Bill Spadea for President and Dennis as his Veep

Here are two examples of citizens who have strong opinions but also know how to change their minds on an issue and— how to talk to people with opposing, views trying to find that proverbial common ground and that my friends is the essence of our democracy.

 

So take a listen to NJ 101.5 (Radio FM) for lessons in public discourse, freedom of expression and most importantly  zany wits all around the station !! If you dare…

Have a stupendous day my fellow Americans!!

Peace

Why I Love President Trump… He listens and acts … Quickly, Kudos!

President Donald Trump, under growing pressure to act unilaterally to address the immigration crisis, said Wednesday that he would be “signing something” soon that would keep immigrant families together. “I’ll be signing something in a little while …

Immigrant Children Facts

Apparently this is an Obama -Era problem,

compounded by new Trump policy of removing children from parents,

both Obama and Trump have failed in the immigration issue…. as well as Congress and HHS.

=======================================================

Below VIA FACT CHECK

==========================================================

 

Did the U.S. Government Lose Track of 1,475 Migrant Children? (under the Obama administration)

An official from Health and Human Services reported to a Senate subcommittee that 1,475 unaccompanied migrant children are unaccounted for.

ORIGIN

On 26 April 2018, the New York Times and the Associated Press both reported that the U.S. government had lost track of nearly 1,500 migrant children it had placed into the homes of caregivers. The alarming nature of the headlines prompted many readers to question the veracity of the reports, but they are apparently true.

The Times and AP reports were based on statements made by Steven Wagner, acting assistant secretary of Administration for Children and Families for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on 26 April 2018 at a Senate Homeland Security subcommittee oversight hearing, statements which can be viewed in full here. According to that transcript, Wagner told senators:

From October to December 2017, ORR [Office of Refugee Resettlement] attempted to reach 7,635 UAC [unaccompanied alien children] and their sponsors. Of this number, ORR reached and received agreement to participate in the safety and well-being call from approximately 86 percent of sponsors. From these calls, ORR learned that 6,075 UAC remained with their sponsors. Twenty-eight UAC had run away, five had been removed from the United States, and 52 had relocated to live with a non-sponsor. ORR was unable to determine with certainty the whereabouts of 1,475 UAC.

======================

Social media users widely shared an Arizona Daily Star report describing the wrenching scene at a court hearing in which a distraught mother who had been separated from her sons, aged 8 and 11 years, was given no information on when they might be reunited:

Alma Jacinto covered her eyes with her hands as tears streamed down her cheeks.

The 36-year-old from Guatemala was led out of the federal courtroom without an answer to the question that brought her to tears: When would she see her boys again?

Jacinto wore a yellow bracelet on her left wrist, which defense lawyers said identifies parents who are arrested with their children and prosecuted in Operation Streamline, a fast-track program for illegal border crossers.

Moments earlier, her public defender asked the magistrate judge when Jacinto would be reunited with her sons, ages 8 and 11. There was no clear answer for Jacinto, who was sentenced to time served on an illegal-entry charge after crossing the border with her sons near Lukeville on May 14.

Senator Heitkamp slammed both HHS and the new policy in a statement her office sent to us:

The more we learn about childhood trauma, the clearer it becomes that the negative consequences of trauma can reverberate for a lifetime. There’s nothing more traumatic for a child than being separated from their parents, so we have to approach this challenge in a compassionate and humanitarian way. There’s nothing compassionate about losing track of over 1,500 children – that’s negligence, and it’s an outrage. I will continue to push to hold HHS accountable for its failure to keep track of the children in its care, and ensure that proper procedures are in place to compassionately care for kids who are facing unimaginable stress and trauma.

HHS has failed to prove that they have the resources, processes, or frankly the desire to truly handle this situation. As I have said, they have proven to be the worst foster care system I’ve seen – and yet even more children are expected be forced into a clearly broken system. This is not how we should treat children, regardless of what country they come from. We have a moral and humanitarian duty toprotect and care for these children properly while they are under federal supervision and in this country – regardless of circumstances.

========================================

The Associated Press reported two years ago that in April 2014 the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services relaxed its safety standards to promptly move migrant children out of government shelters and into sponsors’ homes when waves of illegal aliens surged across the southern border.

===========================================

Don’t be manipulated by emotional histrionics look for the facts and solutions yourself.  PEACE

“[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Page texted Strzok. “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok responded. (two FBI “agents” at work) -The FBI ain’t what it use to be…..

So sad, as the prez. would say… between the FBI agent dancing in a ciub a week or two ago then doing a flip and his gun!!flops out of his pants discharges and hits a patron and the agent then just runs away -leaves…

And today from a watchdog gov. org (thank goodness for watchdogs) that says 2 FBI agents were talking about trying to disrupt an election (shades of Russia-gate) using the power given to them by we the people to uphold the rules of the constitution- Well!

Some heavy duty draining of the swamp is apparently needed,

The good news is the gov. caught the mistake and reported on it –many state local and Fed gov workers are making as bad if not worse assessments and taking actions that injure and sometimes kill citizens…

The cardinal rule of the land is the United States constitution… and the existence of gov,  any gov agency and its workers is to enable individuals to enjoy their rights under the protections of the US constitution… such as electing the president they choose.

So speak up and if you see a gov worker getting to big for his/her britches– then say something…

 

In my opinion…

“Why are we having a meeting without Russia?” the president asked as he left the White House for the summit Friday. “We have a world to run…We should have Russia at the negotiating table.”

President Trump is right, if you do not talk you will create nothing.

– the people who call President Trump names are using school yard antics –

-if you have an issue that you would like the president to help on– call him up and ask for a meeting, this president is the most transparent one we have had since FDR, he is open to talking to anyone … it is then up to you to present your case well!

A challenge indeed!
