    Witnesses in Panama claim that a massive surge of illegal aliens is marching through the country on their way to the United States. The 35,000 illegals are made up primarily of Africans and people from the Middle East, possibly carrying diseases and terrorists among their numbers. There have been many migrants coming in from the Congo, a hotbed of Ebola. If you think that is a good thing, thank a Democrat. This is what their open border policies spawn. Consider this. Just one person with Ebola can set off a pandemic. What could 35,000 do? It’s too frightening to think about.

        Um, you might want to reconsider what you call fake news there sport.

        Trump didn’t serve in the military because he claimed he had “bone spurs.”

        Clinton didn’t serve in the military partly because he was in England and not inhaling marijuana.

        And of course Obama didn’t serve in the military partly because he was registered as a foreign student.

    With the Lincoln Memorial in the background and flanked on both sides by camouflaged Bradley fighting vehicles, President Trump used his “Salute to America” speech Thursday evening to praise the men and women of the Armed Forces and American exceptionalism.
    Awesome Speech and Fantastic way to celebrate our Independence Day. I really enjoyed how the history and song of each of our military services was told. Flyovers totally great . America, Home of the Free, because of the Brave.

    A study by the IFO think tank in Munich found that electric vehicles in Germany emit 11 percent to 28 percent more carbon dioxide than their diesel counterparts. The study considered the production of batteries as well as the German electricity mix in making this determination. Germany spent thousands of euros on electric car subsidies per vehicle to put a million electric vehicles on the road, but those subsidies have done nothing to reach the country’s greenhouse gas emission targets. This is just the latest example of government programs expecting one outcome and getting quite another, instead. To some it is ironic; to others it is funny. At IER, we believe it to be sad, as it is a waste of time and money that could be better put to use solving real problems.

    If you were worried President Donald Trump would use his July 4 “Salute to America” event as an opportunity to blast Democrats or the FBI in front of the Lincoln Memorial, you can rest easy. During the rain-soaked event, Trump avoided partisan politics, and instead focused on glorifying the US military — in completely historical ways.

      Trump wouldn’t travel to honor Americans killed in action on Veterans Day last year because of rain.
      They died with their face to the foe and that pathetic inadequate Trump wouldn’t even defy the weather to pay his respects to the Fallen.

      Trump’s Salute to America was a second-rate Red Square rally.

    Some thoughts now the the 2019 4th of July fireworks season in Mason City is “officially” over.

    What are some of theses yahoos thinking? Driving on Birch Drive by the campground after the M.C. fireworks and some guys were shooting fireworks from the north side of Birch Drive, arcing them just over the trees and having them land in the campground.

    My B-I-L said his neighbors have a fire pit and would throw fireworks in it to “see what would happen”.

    Other incidents I seen where common sense wasn’t a priority.

    Idiots + fireworks + alcohol(?) = somebody’s going to get hurt. Maybe NIT can ask for a police/ambulance/hospital report of some sort and see how many more incidents occurred compared to a normal holiday.

      In 1986, President Ronald Reagan (Republican) signed a sweeping immigration reform bill into law.

      It made any illegal immigrant who’d entered the country before 1982 eligible for amnesty.
      The law granted amnesty to nearly 3 million illegal immigrants.

    WASHINGTON —Calling it “incredibly exciting news,” President Donald Trump revealed on Wednesday that his long-planned Fourth of July parade in Washington will include a flyover by Russian Su-24 fighter planes.

    “These are beautiful, gleaming Russian planes,” Trump boasted to Tucker Carlson, of Fox News. “I’m the first American President who’s had Russian fighters flying over Washington.”

    He said that he finalized the flyover deal while speaking to the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, at the G-20 Summit last week. “Putin said, ‘This is the least we can do, after all you’ve done for us,’ ” Trump said.

    Trump said he imagined that the crews of the Russian military aircraft will be thrilled to fly over the nation’s capital. “I’m sure they’ll be taking a lot of pictures.” he said.

    Trump screwed us again.

    Trump’s administration gave a $12 billion aid package for farmers struggling under the financial strain of his tariff dispute with China.
    Chinese retaliatory tariffs enacted last year caused roughly $11 billion in damages to U.S. farmers.
    Trump provided up to $12 billion – in the form of direct payments to farmers.

    A second round of funding was announced, authorizing USDA to provide up to $16 billion in additional money to farmers.
    So a total of $28 billion in US taxpayer money to offset Trump’s tariffs.

    Some local farmers & what they have received so far:
    J B Farms A General Partnership
    1929 N Shore Dr Clear Lake IA $157,268
    Wyborny Farms 1525 S Shore Dr Unit E Clear Lake IA $140,496
    Mbs Family Farms 2859 110Th St Plainfield IA $361,442
    Mike Olk Farms 12112 Killdeer Ave Rockwell IA $148,408
    Behr Family Farm Partnership Po Box 670 Rockwell IA
    $134,450
    And on and on it goes.

    Thank you Trump supporters, it’s your money too.

        Hey, Trumpanzee numbnuts. Get your lips off of Trump’s ass and quit bending over for him.

        Who pays for US tariffs on Chinese goods?
        It is wrong to say that ‘countries pay’ tariffs on commercial and consumer goods, it is the buyers and sellers that bear the costs.
        China’s government and companies in China do not pay U.S. tariffs.
        Tariffs are a tax on imports and are paid by U.S.registered firms to U.S. customs when goods enter the United States.

        Trump said that tariffs are “paid for mostly by China, by the way, not by us.”…more Trump lies.
        China doesn’t pay the tariffs, U.S. importers do.
        In many if not most cases, those costs are passed on to American consumers.

        On the flip side, American exports to China like agricultural products, take soybeans for example.
        In 2016, China imported an 36 million metric tons, which sank to 8.3 million tons.
        China is replacing U.S. soybeans with Brazilian supplies.

        So by your “logic”, why did Trump then make the payouts (welfare) to US Farmers of $28 billion?
        It isn’t China paying that, it is the US Taxpayer, you dumbass.

        My God, you are one stupid fool.

    Just one problem: Obama wasn’t president in 2008.

    The country was still ruled by his father, Kim Jong Il, who died in 2011.”

    Leading media personalities and top Democratic officials have gone from saying there was no crisis at the southern border to saying there is one in just a few short months.
    Hosts on CNN and MSNBC like Joe Scarborough, Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, Nicolle Wallace and others went along with Democratic talking points earlier this year that the Trump administration had manufactured a crisis at the border to secure wall funding.
    Illegal crossings have increased since then, but the situation at the border has been untenable for years. Now with increased reporting on poor conditions at border detention facilities for children, the situation has again been deemed a “crisis.”

      There was a substantial budget surplus when Bill Clinton left office. It didn’t take George W long to use up the surplus buying weapons, and run us right back into the red. Created a mess that crashed the economy, then ran away and left it for Obama to fix, which he did. Now Trump is making an even bigger mess, starting wars all over the world, and every economist who isn’t being paid off or blackmailed by the Republicrooks says that a bigger, deeper, more destructive depression is headed our way for next year.

    One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country. I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank. I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes. Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

    What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.. ( The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.) The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House?( John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. ) If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to. [The House has passed a budget but the Senate has not approved a budget in over three years. The President’s proposed budgets have gotten almost unanimous rejections in the Senate in that time. ]

      “John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party…”
      John Boehner?
      Boehner resigned from the House of Representatives in October 2015.

    It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
    If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair. If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red. If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it’s because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan .. If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way. There are no insoluble government problems.
    Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do. Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible. They, and they alone, have the power. They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses. Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees… We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!
    Tax his land, Tax his bed, Tax the table, At which he’s fed. Tax his tractor, Tax his mule,Teach him taxes Are the rule.

      So you prefer what, anarchy? Dictators and their toadies talk like this, trying to create chaos that they can use to take over and oppress everybody but themselves. There’s an old saying: democracy is the worst form of government on the planet–except for all of the other ones.

    Trump claims ‘brand new’ World War II Sherman tanks will be part of July 4th salute to US military
    “So we have the brand new Sherman Tanks and the brand new Abrams tanks…” – Donald Trump Jul 1, 2019

    Trump is such a dumbass, doesn’t even know what is in the US military arsenal.
    Trump claims ‘brand new’ World War II Sherman tanks will be part of July 4th salute to US military.
    The U.S. military stopped using Sherman tanks after the Korean War, the U.S. Army replaced the M4 Sherman tank in 1957.
    Sherman tanks and those newfangled bi-planes perhaps, eh Donny?
    We haven’t used Sherman’s since before Trump dodged the draft.

      That’s all you can do, is make a feeble attempt at deflection.
      But then you Trump supporters never make any effort to defend Trump’s idiotic actions and words.
      Which is understandable, given the fact that Trump is the worst person to ever sit in the Oval office.

    “Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the former White House press secretary, will reportedly write a book about her time working for Donald Trump.”

    Possible titles for a Sarah Sanders memoir?
    1. It’s a Wonderful Lie.
    2. Lying and grifting for dummies
    3. Mendacious Deceit
    4. How to Sell Your Soul for $180K/year
    5. Lying for My Lord and Savior Donald Trump

    The book will be sold with crayons for Trump supporters.
    If she expects Trump to read it, she’ll need to include lots of simple words and colorful pictures.

      And Joe Biden, the former Vice President, will reportedly write a book about his time working for Barack Obama and touring the country sniffin’ women.
      The book will allegedly explain how Joe got the Ukraine prosecutor that was investigating his son, fired. It’s hinted that the book will contain a spreadsheet showing the $1.5 Billion his son received from China and its ultimate disposition.

    ** We must secure our borders to keep America safe and healthy. Illegal means illegal. We are s land of freedom and opportunity and I want to share that with others. I feel like every person deserves what we have but they have to do it legally. We cannot process thousands of people per day. It must be orderly and most of all LEGALLY done. * *All these Democrats running for president care more about illegal immigrants than they do for actual Americans, thank God we finally have a president who continues to fulfill his promises, continues to put Americans first. Meanwhile Democrats continue to do nothing but spread hatred, racism and bigotry, they all want to raise taxes to 70%. Take away our 1st & 2nd amendment to the constitution. Just vote for TRUMP 2020. **That’s all the Dems talk about. They voted to force US citizens without health insurance to get it, or face a penalty every year. But, ILLEGAL Immigrants get it for free?? Who do they really care about?? Think about it at Election Day.
