How to rebuild U.S. military might

Only a Trump economy could fund the lacking defenses



By Tom McInerney and Erin Cassidy – – Monday, August 29, 2016


In order to rebuild the U.S. military the next president is going to have to do the following things with the economy. The next administration must design a growth plan that will allow the U.S. economy to expand at a 3 percent to 6 percent rate per year. Only Donald Trump’s plan has the opportunity to do this. It can be accomplished by the following these important actions:

  • We must become energy independent within three years, and that should include Mexico and Canada. Energy independence creates the economic environment that can grow millions of jobs over the four-year period. A President Trump will take the handcuffs off our energy resources.
  • Obamacare must be terminated immediately as it has already become a sinkhole for federal funds and increased costs of medical care in the country.
  • The nearly $2 trillion that U.S. corporations hold in overseas banks should be granted a one-year tax holiday if they bring them back and invest in U.S. companies with modernized plants and production. This fiscal stimulus will have a huge job creation effect and the 93 million Americans without full-time jobs will be back in the work force again.
  • The corporate income tax should be reduced from 35 percent to 15 percent. Not only will this stimulate jobs by U.S. corporations, it will also enable them to keep their plants in the United States as well as bring back others from China, Thailand and Mexico. In addition, a favorable tax structure will encourage foreign corporations to relocate to the U.S. This is an important addition that people have not fully understood. Those who say that cutting the corporate tax rewards the wealthy do not understand the job creation impact it will have. A fully employed American work force will give a substantial increase to U.S. tax revenues as demonstrated during the Kennedy and Reagan administrations.
  • We must eliminate the huge number of regulations the Obama administration published during the last eight years. Today this burden costs the United States $108 billion annually in inefficiencies. This is just not acceptable and it is one of the major reasons why the administration has had one of the lowest growth rates in our history. Growth and wealth creation must be our objective.
  • Individual tax rates must be lowered. The economy will expand when people can keep what they earn and invest it in homes, education and other areas that increase our growth rates. American workers need a tax break — not a tax increase.
  • We have both worked in the U.S. industrial base and know that it must be rebuilt. During the past eight years the U.S. industrial base being downsized to where we are at the critical point of survival. The industrial base is what enabled us to win World War II and it sustained us through the Cold War in defeating the Soviet Union, with a deterrent strategy that was well funded but affordable for the nation. Leading-edge technologies from the industrial base were instrumental. Today we are faced with adversaries like China, which is building F-22 and F-35 equivalent jet fighters. They have taken our blueprints through cyberwarfare and cut the lag time from 15 years to two to four years. We cannot tolerate this in the future. It is no longer an insider threat or espionage problem. Chinese Unit 61398 is doing this in the Pudong District of Shanghai while we slumber.

In summary, only Donald Trump’s economic plan will enable us to grow sufficiently rebuild our military. We cannot throw dollars at the Pentagon like the Reagan administration did when the gross domestic product (GDP) reached 7 percent. Now we have almost a $20 trillion debt given to us by President Obama. It will take initially 4 percent GDP, growing to 5 percent to rebuild the structures that all of the services need. The American public does not realize that this administration and Congress have unilaterally disarmed us such that we cannot handle any major regional contingency in our current state. The in-commission rates on our aircraft are down to 50 percent or lower on average. We have been fighting radical Islam for 15 years and, unfortunately, we’re losing. During the past eight years, Fort Hood, Chattanooga, San Bernardino and Orlando have all been attacks directed by radical Islamists.

We have let them declare a caliphate in Syria and Iraq that is spreading to 28 nations. Russia has seized Crimea and parts of Eastern Ukraine. China has expanded island airfields into the South China Sea. All these action are unacceptable.

We must rebuild our military now and the Trump economic plan is the only one that can do it.

Message from a non-oppressed black man to Colin Kaepernick…

Editor’s Note: From our great friend Lt. Colonel Allen West, U.S. Army (ret.).

When ignorance becomes subversive and UNamerican in the pursuit of losing identity which is what “they” want. Looks like Colin missed some things.







Message from a non-oppressed black man to Colin Kaepernick…

By Allen West1:44pm  August 28, 2016


If there’s one thing I live for, it’s football season, especially college. Saturday night I was enjoying a fantastic game between Charleston Southern University and North Dakota State University. The game went into overtime and ended with the Bison of NDSU winning 24-17. However, as I watched this thrilling game, it was an item on the ESPN news ticker that disturbed me — to which I see a need to respond to this “teachable moment.”

As we reported yesterday, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem in Friday’s pre-season game against Green Bay because he was protesting “black oppression” in the United States. The Niners went on to lose.

The NFL issued a statement that said players are encouraged but not required to stand for the national anthem. Hmm, this is the same NFL that refused to allow the Dallas Cowboys to wear a helmet decal in honor of the fallen Dallas Police officers gunned down on Thursday July 7th.


This is the same NFL that said nothing when players from the then- St. Louis Rams displayed the false narrative symbol of “hands up, dont shoot” — which we know didn’t happen. I find it rather interesting that the NFL has no issue disrespecting law enforcement officers but only “encourages” players to respect the symbol of our nation, the American flag, and our anthem, the Star Spangled Banner.

However, I would recommend a simple scripture from the wise King Solomon for Mr. Kaepernick, Proverbs 17:28 (NIV): “Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues.”

Or, as the old folks down South would say, “best for a stupid person to keep their mouth shut and not open it and let everyone know they are.”

Mr. Kaepernick, a biracial young man adopted and raised by white parents, claims America is oppressing blacks at a time when we have a black, biracial president who was twice elected. We’ve had two black attorneys general and currently have a black secretary of homeland security, along with a black national security advisor. Here in Dallas our police chief, whom I know, is an outstanding black leader. The officer in Milwaukee who shot the armed assailant after issuing an order to drop his weapon was black. Is Mr. Kaepernick following suit and cherry-picking what he terms “oppression?”

First of all, let me clarify to you sir, you are a multi-millionaire “one-percenter” just because you can throw a ball and kiss your biceps. Men like Jesse Owens, Jackie Robinson, Hank Aaron, Oscar Robertson, Ernie Davis, and Bernard King and Condredge Halloway of my alma mater were athletes who knew of oppression. You sir may certainly have the right to sit upon your “fourth point of contact” when the National Anthem is played but never forget, you live in a nation that has provided you the privilege to have that right.

My story is one I wish to share. My dad was a corporal in the U.S. Army and served during World War II. He was born in 1920 and knew oppression. Yet, when he sat me down on the steps of our home, 651 Kennesaw Ave NE in Atlanta, he shared with me that there was no greater honor or privilege, than to wear the uniform of these United States. Perhaps that ‘s why his first and middle sons, along with his grandson, are all U.S. combat veterans, just like Dad. Herman West Sr. was not a victim, and he raised men who would never allow anyone to suppress or oppress them. Perhaps you should stop trying to make victims and admonish people, black people, to be victors — try it, and you may find that more satisfying than your insidious action and word vomiting.

If you want to know about oppression of blacks in America, past and present, how about you ask Rep. Nancy Pelosi of the San Fran Bay Area about the policies that decimated the black family? Maybe you can cross the Bay over to Oakland and ask Rep. Barbara Lee about the 13 to15 million black babies killed since 1973, and ask her who is Margaret Sanger?

Or perhaps you can ask the two California senators, Boxer and Feinstein, about who doesn’t support better education opportunities for black children in the inner cities — school choice, vouchers, charter schools, home schooling.

Perhaps you didn’t know Barack Obama was the one who cancelled the DC school voucher program for deserving young black children — talk about oppression. Is that something you’re willing to do, or is it just too difficult?

You should look at who’s been controlling the communities and cities where blacks live. This isn’t not about what America has done; it’s about what a certain group, a political party has done. And your somewhat backhanded comment towards our law enforcement officers — well, wonder how many times San Francisco PD has protected you?

Here is the deal young man. My recommendation is that you apologize. Be a stand up fella and admit you made a very stupid comment. Humbly state that you do realize how very special this country is and the opportunities it has afforded you — and many others. You should take that stand and apologize to all of those who are currently serving in our Armed Forces and those veterans who’ve been willing to make that last full measure of devotion. You see, when the National Anthem is played, it has a very special meaning to us — maybe you should take a hiatus and go over to Helmand Province in Afghanistan and spend a week and understand why. Go over and throw a football with the men and women who enable you to earn those millions of dollars.

The American flag has a very touching meaning for those of us for whom it will drape our coffin — as it was for my Dad…and it will be for me. That song defines who we are as a proud and exceptional people. This is a land where so many dream of coming to and earning the title of American. Your actions were shameful, disgusting, despicable and disrespectful.

You do have a right and a freedom of expression. But know, there are consequences to your ignorant action, which is what it was.

When the National Anthem is played, I salute because I am a black man born and raised in the inner city afforded the opportunity for greatness in my own right. May you seek God’s forgiveness and find humility, because we, the people are not going to forget what you did and said.

Colin Kaepernick’s massive implosion: The clearest sign yet that the 49ers have no idea what they’re doing, not at all

Why Does Colin Kaepernick Look So Skinny All of a Sudden?

Despite rumors of a trade to the New York Jets, Cleveland Browns or Denver Broncos, Kaepernick remains a member of the San Francisco 49ers, but he had a rough 2015 season. He was benched for Blaine Gabbert and later placed on injured reserve  after electing to have surgery on a torn labrum in his left shoulder. Kaepernick has spent much of the off-season rehabbing, and, by his appearance in a recent photo, losing a ton of weight and muscle mass.


NICE stats!

They studied and flew the plays. Millions of lives were at risk vs. millions of dollars. Now back to the 49er gold diggers and the Silicon Valley sell outs…history is an amazing thing…The destruction of the greatest brands: 49er Football…Levi Jeans…America…Colin wants to boycott America so maybe we should boycott 49er Football and Levi’s.

Poor Colin’s being resides in his own obfuscation for a reason.


San Francisco 49ers could make Colin Kaepernick third string quarterback

By Alex Butler   |   Updated May 9, 2016

“And I think the 49ers want Colin to be the third-stringer,” Cohn wrote Friday. “As a third-string quarterback, the Niners could de-activate Colin every game and save the weekly $125,000 roster bonuses they’d have to pay him.”

“Cohn came to his conclusion by playing ‘Where’s Waldo’ in the team photo galleries. He spotted the quarterback eight times in 656 photos.”









Listen up…Poor Oppressed Colin (OC) needs attention…Looks like he is playing everyone for a buck a … Goldigger Football…

Is Hillary Clinton Sick? 


Ray DiLorenzo


What the main stream media is not talking about:

Reports, leaks and rumors are coming in fast that Hillary Clinton is ill, seriously ill.  Matt Drudge is reporting that the media is propping up an old and sick Hillary Clinton.  “Anybody who is 70 years old who is hypothyroid, you do not elect president, ladies and gentlemen.”  Among the possible symptoms for hypothyroidism include: weight gain, depression and depressed mood, severe fatigue, headaches, joint and muscle pain, heightened risk of heart disease, sleeping more than average, memory loss and fuzzy thinking, slurring of speech and increased inability to follow conversation or train of thought.

Catholic Online is reporting that cameras have caught glimpses of Hillary coughing, wheezing, stumbling and stuttering.  She was recently photographed being helped up a moderate flight of stairs by the Secret Service.  They also reported that there appears to have been a tumor on her tongue that was removed leaving a hole.  One of her staff has been photographed carrying a pen for emergency injections.

Man propping up Hillary Clinton to keep from falling

Photo taken in April in Los Angeles


World Net Daily (WND) is reporting that Clinton has a history of falling.  In 2009, she fell on her way to the White House and broke her elbow.  In 2013, Hillary fainted and fell while secretary of state and was treated for a blood clot in a vein in her head.  She was treated at New York Presbyterian Hospital.

WND has also reported that the medication Clinton is taking to treat her clotting problem, Coumadin, may be more dangerous than the condition itself. It can cause confusion and blurred vision.  In las Vegas, Clinton wore thick, black glasses fitted with fresnel prisms.

WND asked several physicians if they believed the glasses, used to treat double vision, were from a concussion she suffered in December of 2012 that resulted in a blood clot in her head.

Dr. Todd Lasner, a neurosurgeon at Mt. Sinai Medical in Miami, said, “My first suspicion would be the fresnel lenses were prescribed for Hillary Clinton because of nerve damage causing double vision resulting from a trauma to her head, possible from the fall causing the concussion..but without her medical records, I cannot say for certain.”

Dr. Daniel Kassicieh, D.O., a dual board certified osteopathic neurologist in Sarasota, Florida agreed that the diagnosis of Clinton’s double vision and the prescription of a fresnel prism lens would require consultation with a specialist.



Kassicieh also noticed that Clinton’s coughing spells seem to be a persistent and recurring problem.

“I think Hillary’s cough is a separate medical problem from her double vision,” he said.  “But, it makes me wonder if there isn’t something else going on with her health that we don’t know about.”



Catholic Online


According to an advance copy of “The Problem With Hillary” by Edward Klein, among Clinton’s health issues are “blinding headaches, a history of strokes,  exhaustion and depression much of the time and there is the possibility of MS.

Clinton insists her health is not an issue, but much of Hillary’s medical history is under wraps.  With multiple scandals and health issues looming, is Hillary Clinton on a road to a dead end?

Editor’s note:  Andrew Breitbart, founder of Breitbart News, died in 2012 at age 43.  While coincidences are certainly possible, these deaths join a long list of ‘coincidences.’   There is a reasonable chance that the American voters, if they choose to elect Hillary Clinton, will be placing in the presidency the most sophisticated criminal enterprise in U.S. history.



Obama Will Not Allow Probe Into Clinton Foundation

The Obama administration rejected requests from three FBI field offices that wanted to open public corruption cases involving the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton.  “The latest refusal to allow even a cursory investigation into the Clinton Foundation’s pay-for play dealings smacks of political favoritism.  This is exactly why the American public has lost trust in the U.S. government and is ready to elect an outsider like Donald Trump” says Jason Miller, Trump campaign spokesman.  Washington Times

Editor’s note:  Truth, justice and the American way is dead in America and Obama has given it the final blow.  Is it any wonder why Trump is getting hammered so badly?  The establishment on both sides will not allow an ‘outsider’ in their midst– especially one who is not beholden to anyone.  They are confident the media will buy what they are selling and the people will lay dormant.  Even if the public-at-large is not buying it, they are figuratively saying to all of us, “this is the way its gonna be, what are ya gonna do about it.”

“The problem with trickle-down economics is nothing ever trickles down.”  

Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor under Bill Clinton 

Editor’s note:  Now a professor at UC Berkeley (Berserkly), Mr Reich’s ignorance of economics is incredible.  The accusation, made on Fox News, was that Donald Trump’s economic plan was only going to save Mr. Trump and those like him millions of dollars in taxes.  

What would Trump and other well-to-do people do with the money they save, bury it in their backyards?  Did the purchase of Trump’s private jet trickle down to anyone else?    Ask the people that build the jets, pilot the jets, maintain the jets.  When a real estate mogul decides he has the funds to build another skyscraper and proceeds to build it, does that benefit anyone?  Ask the contractors, the architects, the steel workers, the steel producers, the plumbers, the electricians, the hotels, the restaurants, the cabdrivers, the department stores if they benefitted at all from trickle-down economics.

In the world of the liberal socialist, no one is rich except themselves.  No one benefits from their labors except themselves.  Have the Clinton’s ever produced anything?  For all their wealth, how many people do the Clintons employ?  Socialism (communism) can never provide for you what you can provide for yourself.  It is the ultimate class society. Those in power have, those not in power have not.

Capitalism IS trickle-down economics…everyone benefits.  Business grows the economy, not government!  Understand this, socialists hate people being independent.  They need dependents to directly prosper. Those who have decided not to do for themselves and wait for the liberal socialists to deliver what they promised are going to wait indefinitely…and that is the whole idea.


Socialism or liberal policies (they are still waiting)

Hillary Clinton’s Foreign Policy Legacy: A More Unstable, Less Free World

Editor’s Note: From our great friend Fred Gedrich and our friends at Breitbart.

Fred Gedrich is a foreign policy and national security analyst.  He served in the U.S. departments of State and Defense.

Clinton’s consistent pattern of behavior and her past shed’s light on the future of the “American Brand” of foreign policy.



Hillary Clinton’s Foreign Policy Legacy: A More Unstable, Less Free World

by Fred Gedrich26 Aug 2016

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has wrapped herself in the mantle of President Barack Obama’s foreign and national security policies, expecting it to facilitate her rise to the presidency. However, the current global mess and her record as U.S. Senator, as the nation’s top diplomat, and her conduct while in office cast serious doubt on whether she deserves election to the nation’s highest office.

On the surface, Secretary Clinton’s resume appears impressive. She served the nation as First Lady for eight years, as twice-elected U.S. Senator from New York for eight years, and as the 67th U.S. Secretary of State during President Obama’s first term for four years. She is also the first woman ever nominated for the presidency by a major political party. And, if elected, she would become the first secretary of state to be elected president since James Buchanan in 1856.

As a U.S. Senator, Hillary Clinton attempted to bolster her national security credentials by serving on the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee. Arguably, her most important and controversial votes were in favor of the Afghanistan and Iraq war resolutions.  Those wars, to date, have resulted in 6,888 American troop fatalities, 49,897 American troop injuries, at an estimated cost to the American taxpayer of between $4-6 trillion. And despite the enormous American sacrifice of blood and treasure during the Bush and Obama administrations, these two nations remain among the most dangerous places on earth, infested with radical Islamic terrorists who continue to threaten U.S. citizens and U.S. national security.

As Secretary of State (the executive branch of U.S. Government’s third highest position after the President and Vice-President), Mrs. Clinton dutifully carried-out President Obama’s foreign policies and served as a key member of his National Security Council, providing advice and assistance to him on the most important and urgent foreign policies and national security matters. She promised to move the country in a new direction with “smartforeign policies designed to make the U.S. more secure and the world more free and peaceful.

Some significant examples of where those policies led to and how she handled her secretary of state duties follow:

  • The Institute for Economics and Peace’s Global Peace Index provides an assessment of the current global landscape in 2016. It reported a decade-long decline in peace with terrorism at an all-time high, battle deaths from conflict at a 25-year high, and the number of refugees and displaced people at a level not seen in sixty years. Since 2009, terrorism-related deaths have more than tripled; battle deaths from conflict have more than tripled; and refugees and internally displaced persons almost doubled to 60 million people.
  • The U.S. State Department’s 2016 congressionally-mandated annual report on terrorism lists 59 foreign terrorist organizations (about 75 percent of them which gestated and operate in Muslim-majority countries) that threaten U.S. citizens and security.  Since 2009, the Department reported the number of FTOs grew by 34 percent. IntelCent (a private firm which collects and disseminates up-to-date global terrorist activity) currently ranks Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Turkey, Pakistan, Libya and Somalia as the world’s most dangerous countries, and the Islamic State (which evolved from al Qaeda in Iraq) and the Taliban among the most dangerous terror groups.
  • Freedom House (a democracy, press and human rights watchdog group) reported in 2016 that global freedom declined for the 10th consecutive year and that press freedom at its lowest point in 12 years. Of the world’s 7.3 billion people, only 40 percent live in freedom and only 13 percent enjoy a free press.
  • Secretary Clinton stored more than 30,000 official government emails without permission, including some containing the nation’s most secretive information, in private unsecured servers at unsecured locations outside of U.S. government control during and after her time in office. Her action, among other things, possibly exposed U.S. state secrets and other sensitive information to skilled Chinese, Russian, Iranian, and North Korean espionage cyber-thieves that could be used to embarrass and/or blackmail U.S. government officials. It spurred FBI and State Department Inspector General investigations and congressional hearings which proved many of her statements about it wrong and caused the FBI Director to claim that Secretary Clinton and her colleagues “…were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information…”
  • Secretary Clinton routinely met with people in the private sector and representatives of foreign governments during her State Department tenure that gave or pledged large sums of money to the Clinton Foundation and programs. The Associated Press recently reported, through evidence contained in recently disclosed emails, that more than half the people (85 of 154) outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave a total about $156 million – either personally or through companies or groups to the foundation. She also met with at least 16 representatives of foreign governments who gave another $170 million to the foundation. The revelation raises serious ethical and conflicting interest issues.

Ironically, Secretary Clinton and her allies are suggesting to voters in campaign ads, on the campaign trail, and in media that her prime presidential opponent, Donald Trump, is advocating dangerous policies that would harm the U.S. and world and therefore is unfit to lead this great nation. Time will tell whether American voters will look through that smokescreen and see the harm that President Obama and Secretary Clinton “smart” foreign policies may have done to U.S. and global peace and security, and how she behaved in office.

As America’s 2016 presidential election approaches its final stage beginning on Labor Day, American voters will have a clear choice on whether to elect someone like Secretary Clinton who offers a continuation of President Obama’s globalist policies or a successful international businessman and non-politician Trump who seeks to “Make America Great Again” by turning the country in a new direction, placing American interests first and away from Obama/Clinton’s globalist policies. The world will be anxiously awaiting their decision.

The Secure America Series: “Beyond Belief: Obama Seeks Illegal Immigration Assistance Of Latin American Countries As Aliens Flood Into The U.S. ~ The wolves helping to guard the hen house?”

Editor’s Note: A comprehensive series of articles from our good friend Michael Cutler, INS Special Agent (ret.) He is a Senior Fellow with Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS) and is a columnist for FrontPage Magazine.  He hosts his own radio program, “The Michael Cutler Hour” that airs on Friday evenings at 7:00 PM, Eastern Time on USA Talk Radio

Mr. Cutler is an expert on the nexus between immigration and national security, the impact of immigration on the criminal justice system and strategies to combat illegal immigration, secure our nation’s borders and restore integrity to the immigration system. He graduated from Brooklyn College of the City University of New York in 1971 with a B.A. in Communications Arts and Sciences. Before becoming a fellow, Mr. Cutler had a 30 year career with the INS where he was a Senior Special Agent. His complete biography is found below and worth the read.


“Beyond Belief: Obama Seeks Illegal Immigration Assistance Of Latin American Countries As Aliens Flood Into The U.S. ~ The wolves helping to guard the hen house?”






Areas reporting a new mystery disease. OBcair is ready:




This administration has consistently acted in ways that show utter contempt for American lives and utter contempt for the Constitution and the Rule of Law.  It has trampled on the principle of separation of powers.  In so doing, this administration has created an environment of mistrust by the citizens of the United States that go to the very heart of our Democratic Republic.


Our nation’s immigration laws are among its most fundamental because they were enacted to protect national security and the lives and livelihoods of Americans.  Politicians from both political parties have found every excuse imaginable, and indeed, some excuses that defy logic and reason to explain why our immigration laws cannot, will not or must not be enforced.


My article for FrontPage Magazine on August 26, 2016 addresses the unbelievable fact that the administration has decided to partner with governments of Latin American countries to secure our porous borders against the entry of aliens from countries around the world including countries in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.


Many of these Latin American countries have come to depend on the remittances being wired home by their citizens working illegally in the United States, including Mexico.  This is about as sensible as a bank hiring Willy Sutton to protect the bank from bank robbers.


Yet this “partnership” has gotten little, if any attention in the “Mainstream Media.”


As Americans, irrespective of race, religion or ethnicity, we are in this battle for survival together.  This is not about being a Democrat, a Republican, a Conservative or a Liberal.  It is not about being an Independent.  This is about being an American!


Those who advocate for the effective enforcement of our immigration laws are not “Anti-Immigrant” but are “Pro-Enforcement.”  To be “Pro-Enforcement” is taking a “Pro-Immigrant” position because under our current immigration laws our nation admits more lawful immigrants than all of the other countries on this planet.  Our immigration laws are utterly blind as to race, religion and ethnicity and must finally be effectively enforced!


Tactics of intimidation and deceptive use of language are the stock and trade of the open borders anarchists.  Anyone who would dare suggest that our government must exercise caution in admitting aliens into the United States to protect the safety and security of America and Americans are quickly branded “racist” and “nativist.”  Their objective is to shut down debate and discourse- the hallmarks of true democracies.


Americans must be willing to stand their ground and not be intimidated by the false accusations- far too much hangs in the balance!


Many people have come to complain that we have become too “Politically Correct” to speak the truth about important issues.  My view is that the artful use of language that has been described as examples of political correctness are in fact, examples of Orwellian “Newspeak.”


Having invoked George Orwell, it is appropriate to consider, a couple of his brilliant quotes:

Political language — and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists — is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.


In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

Effective Immigration Law Enforcement is ‘Pro-Immigrant,’ Compassionate


On August 2, 2016 I joined Dennis Michael Lynch for a special edition program of his Newsmax-TV program, Unfiltered.


For one solid hour we discussed the multifaceted immigration crisis for a one on one conversation.  The video has been posted:


DML Unfiltered | Dennis discusses illegal and legal immigration with Michael Cutler


In October 2014 Progressives For Immigration Reform published my policy brief:

The Liberal Case for Effective Immigration Law Enforcement


video of my presentation of my policy brief at the Progressives For Immigration Reform conference in November 2014 has been posted on You Tube.


On November 15, 2014 I was honored to join three true leaders in the United States Congress in a panel discussion on immigration- Senator Jeff Sessions and Congressmen Louis Gohmert and John Fleming.  A video of this panel discussion has been posted on the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s website under the title,

“Immigration Wars”


The perspectives of these true leaders are well worth listening to.

To provide you with a bit of additional material, during my remarks at the panel discussion, I referenced my June 22, 2007 Op-Ed for the Washington Times that focused on my concerns about the previous attempt to enact Comprehensive Immigration Reform.  Senator Jeff Sessions quoted from my commentary, on three separate dates, from the floor of the U.S. during the contentious floor debates.  In my piece I recommended that Comprehensive Immigration Reform be given a more honest and descriptive title, I suggested that it be renamed the “Terrorist Assistance and Facilitation Act!”  

I recommend you review Senator Session’s statement on June 27, 2007 from the floor of the U.S. Senate on the Immigration Bill in which the Senator made reference to my suggested new name to that disastrous legislation in my Washington Times Op-Ed.  His impassioned pleas to his colleagues averted a catastrophe and that legislation was defeated.  However, not unlike Freddy Krueger, Comprehensive Immigration Reform has been brought back to life through the unilateral actions of President Obama and his proposed executive actions.  Furthermore, there are politicians from both parties willing to give this legislative betrayal of America and Americans CPR!

My Op-Ed was entitled:

Immigration bill a ‘No Go 


Today our nation and our citizens face a list of challenges and threats- nearly every one of which is being exacerbated by long-standing failures of our nation to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws.  To be clear, it is not “Anti-Immigrant” to want these two issues to be dealt with effectively.  In point of fact, the same immigration laws that mandate the categories of aliens to be kept our of our country and the terms under which aliens should be removed from our country have absolutely nothing to do with race, religion or ethnicity, also provide for the lawful admission of roughly one million lawful immigrants and the naturalization of hundreds of thousands of new citizens each year.


It is therefore a contradiction in terms and thinking to claim that it is “Anti-Immigrant” to support the effective enforcement and administration of our immigration laws


Let us be clear in our thinking- it is “Pro-Immigrant” to be “Pro-Enforcement!”


When the issue of immigration comes up most people purely focus on the lack of integrity to the border that is supposed to separate the United States from America.  Clearly that border lacks integrity and represents little more than a speed bump to smugglers who transport illegal aliens and contraband including record quantities of dangerous drugs such as heroin and cocaine into the United States.


However, there are many more components to the immigration system including systems by which aliens are granted visas to enter the United States and various immigration benefits such as conferring employment authorization to aliens in the United States and also include the adjudications process by which aliens are granted lawful immigrant status and even United States citizenship.


All of these systems of the immigration system lack integrity.  Aliens who have gone on to commit crimes and even participate in terrorist attacks have often been dissevered to have successfully gamed the immigration benefits program in order to embed themselves in communities around the United States as they went about their deadly preparations.

On July 2, 2013 the Washington Times published my Op-Ed:


CUTLER: Tough questions about immigration ‘reform’

Who will find the answers while there’s still time to prevent a disaster?



On June 13, 2013 I was interviewed by Neil Cavuto at Fox News on the topic:

Does immigration reform pose too many risks?

The interview ran about 4 minutes and is worth watching.

On April 4, 2014, CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization) posted my commentary that asks the questions all Americans need to ask their political “representatives.”  My commentary is aptly titled:  “How? Why?


In his historic speech before the 3rd Army on May 31, 1944, General George S. Patton said, on the strategy of holding a position:

We’re not holding anything, we’ll let the Hun do that. We are advancing constantly, and we’re not interested in holding onto anything except the enemy.”

Pushing back against Comprehensive Immigration Reform is the same as holding position. The time has come for us to advance by demanding that our borders be made truly secure and our immigration laws be effectively administered and enforced.

Comprehensive Immigration Reform violates all of the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission but no one is willing to even consider how the lack of real border security and the lack of real integrity to the various components of the immigration system imperil national security and public safety.

The findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission must be the starting point for any discussion about immigration legislation.  That commission determined that a lack of border security, including the visa process. and fraud in the immigration benefits program, enabled terrorists to enter and embed themselves in the United States, as they went about their deadly preparations.


Immigration is not a single issue but a singular issue that impacts nearly every challenge and threat confronting the United States today!  Simply stated, the immigration laws were enacted to save lives and protect the jobs of American workers.  In point of fact, our borders and our immigration laws are America’s first line of defense and last line of defense against international terrorists and transnational criminals.


It is not “Anti-Immigrant” to be “Pro-American!”


Our armed forces are charged with securing America’s borders externally while the DHS is supposed to secure those same borders from within.  The failures of the DHS to live up to its half of the equation are undermining the efforts, valor and incredible sacrifices of Americas men and women who serve in our military!


If our government’s failures to protect American jobs by securing our nation’s borders and effectively enforcing our immigration laws concerns you or especially if it angers you, I ask you to call your Senators and Congressional “Representative. This is not only your right- it is your obligation!

All I ask is that you make it clear to our politicians that we are not as dumb as they hope we are!

We live in a perilous world and in a perilous era. The survival of our nation and the lives of our citizens hang in the balance.


American Lives Matter!

This is neither a Conservative issue, nor is it a Liberal issue- simply stated, this is most certainly an AMERICAN issue!

You are either part of the solution or you are a part of the problem!

Democracy is not a spectator sport!

Lead, follow or get out of the way!

Michael W. Cutler, Senior Special Agent, INS (Ret.)

Michael Cutler graduated from Brooklyn College of the City University of New York in February 1971 with a B.A. in Communications Arts and Sciences and is a retired Senior Special Agent of the former INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service).

He began his 30 year career in 1971 as an Immigration Inspector, served as an Adjudications Officer and, in 1975, became a Special Agent.  He rotated through every squad in the Investigations Branch of the INS in New York City.  In 1988 he became the first INS agent to be assigned to the Unified Intelligence Division of the DEA and in 1991 was promoted to the position of Senior Special Agent and assigned to the Organized Crime, Drug Enforcement Task Force where he worked closely with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies including the DEA, FBI, ATF, U.S. Marshals Service and with law enforcement agencies of other countries including Israel, Canada, Great Britain and Japan.

Mr. Cutler has testified before well over a dozen Congressional hearings in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.  He most recently testified before a hearing conducted by the Senate Judiciary Committee on March 20, 2013 on the topic, “Building an Immigration System Worthy of American Values.”

One of the highest profile hearings at which he has testified was conducted by the House Immigration Subcommittee on May 19, 2002 on the topic, “INS’S March 2002 Notification Of Approval Of Change Of Status For Pilot Training For Terrorist Hijackers Mohammed Atta And Marwan Al-Shehhi.”  That hearing can be viewed in its entirety on the C-SPAN video.

Mr. Cutler provided testimony to the 9/11 Commission and has testified before numerous state legislative hearings throughout the United States.  He assisted the law firm retained by Arizona’s Governor Jan Brewer to defend her and her state against the DOJ lawsuit in response to  Arizona’s immigration law, SB 1070.  He also provides expert witness testimony at trials where immigration is at issue.

He has appeared on numerous national television programs on CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, Newsmax-TV, One America News Network and other television networks and on numerous radio programs.  He has participated in numerous panel discussions and debates on the immigration issue on college campuses and other venues across the United States.   He is a Senior Fellow with Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS) and is a columnist for FrontPage Magazine.  He hosts his own radio program, “The Michael Cutler Hour” that airs on Friday evenings at 7:00 PM, Eastern Time on USA Talk Radio.
