President Trump Impromptu Presser Departing White House for Texas…

President Trump is departing the White House for a MEGA MAGA rally in Houston Texas as he pauses to answer questions from reporters on current events and a variety of issues.

President Trump notes the looming central American ‘migrant caravan’ is significantly more than the 5,000 to 7,000 people. As the backlash grows the scale of the mob is now being downplayed by the media.  Additional comments on Saudi Arabia (Khashoggi); the withdrawal from the nuclear forces agreement; the evolution to “Beautiful Texas Ted”; Germany purchasing LNG; horrible Nellie Ohr and possible middle-class tax cuts.


A very smart decision by the communications team to remove WH Press Briefings and let President Trump lead the media narrative directly to the midterms.  The best MAGA messenger is the indefatigable President who defines the MAGA message and movement.  The media are positively flummoxed at their inability to take Trump off message…

This is one of the best!

California Judge Hits Creepy Porn Lawyer with $4.85 Million Judgement…

Creepy Porn Lawyer and potential 2020 Democrat presidential candidate, Michael Avenatti, was hit with a $4.85 million judgement today awarding the settlement to an attorney for his former law firm.

Last week CPL said it was unlikely he would lose, stating: “nothing’s gonna happen on Monday” and the claims against him were “bogus”; whoopsie.

Today’s judgement is in addition to a previous award of $10 million to the same lawyer, Jason Frank.

Today’s loss comes on the heels of a financial defeat last week when Creepy and his client Stormy had their case against President Trump dismissed and that judge ordered CPL to pay all of Donald Trump’s defense costs. Another bad week for the Creepy Porn Lawyer.

LOS ANGELES — A California judge on Monday ordered Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti to pay $4.85 million to an attorney at his former law firm, the first time the potential presidential candidate is being held personally liable in the case.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Dennis Landin issued the ruling after turning down a request from Avenatti to have the matter moved to federal court, which the opposing side called a delay tactic.

Avenatti did not appear at the court hearing and never filed opposing arguments in the case.

The judge said Avenatti must pay the money because he personally guaranteed a settlement with Jason Frank, who had worked at his former firm.

Frank had alleged the firm misstated its profits and that he was owed millions.  (read more)

Is Goldman Sachs Banning Staff From Donating to Republicans Again?

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; the Democrats are raising far more money from the various big Super-Pacs to take back the Congress. The talk is the New York bankers are telling staff not to donate to Republicans. Do you know if this is true?


ANSWER: The 2016 Presidential Election was a monumental game changer. Trump did not win the money race, he only won the Presidency because the Democrats & Elitest Republicans were not prepared to overcome the turnout of the Silent Majority.  Trump defied conventional wisdom where the victory goes to the candidate who raised the most money. Clinton and her Super-PACs raised a total of $1.2 billion, less than President Barack Obama raised in 2012, but it was still twice the amount Donald Trump raised.

Hillary’s sophisticated fundraising operation included a small army of wealthy donors who wrote seven-figure checks, hundreds of bundlers who raised $100,000 or more from their own networks, and a small-dollar donor operation modeled on the one used by Obama in 2012. Hillary spent heavily on television advertising and her get-out-the-vote operation, but in the end, her fundraising edge wasn’t enough to overcome Trump’s ability to get out the vote BECAUSE he was an outsider.

Trump donated $66 million of his own money, flew across the country in his private jet, and used his resorts to stage campaign events. At the same time, the billionaire was able to draw about $280 million from small donors giving $200 or less. He did raise more from the small people than Hillary. The Super-PACs, which can take contributions unlimited in size, were similarly skewed toward Hillary Clinton. All the New York Bankers donated to Hillary – NOT Trump! No corruption was more prevalent than that of Goldman Sachs. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. had banned ALL partners from making donations to certain political campaigns, including the Donald Trump-Mike Pence presidential ticket. The audacity of Goldman Sachs to outright prohibit its staff from donating to Trump in the 2016 elections demonstrated how corrupt the entire election process has become. Any people wonder why the Democrats, who profess to hate the “rich” and special interests, and the NUMBER ONE party to whom the most corrupt people in the system donate. Not a single newspaper ever asks – Why?

I have not investigated if they are doing the same thing again for this season. It would not surprise me. Any firm which instructs their employees how to donate and restricts them from donating to their candidate of choice is violating every principle of the democratic process. God help us if they succeed.

CIA Assassination Plots Exposed in 1975

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; it certainly seems that the bureaucracy is really operating against the people. They have tried to assassinate heads of states before. Do you think they would try this in the USA again?


ANSWER: The CIA was exposed back in 1975 for plotting to assassinate various world leaders. The November 20th, 1975 release of a report by the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee confirmed that the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency had tried twice to assassinate Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and once to poison Congo Premier Patrice Lumumba, and that it had supplied aid to insurgents who later assassinated South Vietnam’s President Ngo Dinh Diem and the Dominican Republic dictator Rafael Trujillo. The report emphasized that “No foreign leaders were killed as a result of assassination plots initiated by officials of the United States.” Lumumba had been killed later by political rivals in the Congo. Interestingly enough, the date that report was released was the Pi target on the Economic Confidence Model from the peak of Wave 1972.75.

Sunday Talks: Chairman Bob Goodlatte Discusses Upcoming Rosenstein Hearing and Questioning…

Representative Bob Goodlatte is the House Judiciary Committee Chairman, and the senior chair of the joint Judiciary/Oversight committee looking into the activity of the DOJ and FBI during the 2016 election.  Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is scheduled to appear before the committee leadership on October 24th.

Maria Bartiromo has stayed on top of this story almost from the beginning. Bartiromo has a very strong foundational knowledge that allows her to probe Goodlatte on his specific intentions for the upcoming testimony of DAG Rod Rosenstein.

Victim Details Accusations of Sexual Assault by U.S. Senator Corey Booker…

In a rather remarkable and detailed anonymous posting on social media a man details his encounter with New Jersey Senator Corey Booker, and how Booker sexually assaulted him in a restroom.  According to the victim he reached out to #MeToo champion Ronan Farrow who has done little -so far- to support him. Stunning story – Read Here

George and Simone Papadopoulos Discuss “Spygate”…

While Carter Page was the primary victim within spygate, George and Simone Papadopoulos have been put through the targeted wringer.  George Papadopoulos has been punching back lately and exposing the origins of the corrupt weaponized intelligence operations used against the Trump campaign in 2016.

“Rank and File” – A Conspicuous Absence of Visible Indignation….

Against a rather enlightening week of activity from within the DOJ and FBI, last night I posited the question:

“If the FBI and DOJ were not institutionally corrupt wouldn’t we have seen multiple whistle-blowers this year?”

The purpose of the question is to draw attention to an empirical reality.  By now we  understand many of the big picture details behind DOJ and FBI efforts to weaponize the institutions of government to target their political opposition, namely Donald Trump.

With the removal of so many officials within the institutions, the question becomes less rhetorical.  If the corruption is removed, where are the ‘rank and file’ whistle-blowers surfacing from underneath the now replaced leadership?  Why haven’t we seen anyone from within the system come forth to tell their story?

Where are the voices of the officials within the FBI data forensic units who were given restrictive analytical instructions on Clinton laptops and hard-drives?  Where are the voices of the investigative field agents charged with finding leakers?  Where are the voices of the non-corrupt employees inside the DOJ-NSD or FBI who watched for two years as the small group within upper level offices controlled/scripted the activity?  etc. etc.

The larger question is not asked to state emphatically no such honorable “rank and file” exist; but rather to highlight: if they do exist, then why are they invisible?

The primary reason why honorable people do not step forward within corrupt systems to blow-the-whistle is fear.  Fear of losing a job; fear of retaliation; fear of being targeted by elements within the institution who maintain a corrupt disposition.

If the DOJ and FBI have been cleared of that corruption – wouldn’t we see at least a few people step forward and breathe a sigh-of-relief?

There is a conspicuous absence of indignation, which likely means the aforementioned concerns have not been addressed.  So it is against that backdrop where we review highlights from the last week and accept a disconcerting landscape.

♦Beginning on Monday, October 15, the DOJ announced a plea deal with James Wolfe; the former security head of the Senate Intelligence Committee. I won’t repeat all of the warning flares sent up by the details within the plea agreement {GO DEEP HERE} except to say the plea agreement doesn’t indicate any actual accountability or intent to drain the proverbial swamp.  Exactly the opposite appears true.

However, I will draw attention to what I call the suppressed voice of someone within the system who was clearly signaling, to the best extent possible, that something was afoul.

Wolfe’s June 2018  indictment was never technically about actually leaking to the media.  He was charged with three counts of lying to investigators about his contacts with media. He plead guilty to one count therein. So with that in mind, why was the details of the FISA application so clearly described and outlined within the original indictment?

If Wolfe was never going to be charged with leaking the FISA application (he wasn’t); and if the DOJ/FBI was never going to admit the FISA application was even given to the SSCI (they didn’t); then why did someone go to great lengths to describe that very specific document in the original indictment?

Think carefully about this.

Take a look at the specificity:

If you look at the full indictment, and the actual conclusions to include the charges, you realize these very specific granular paragraphs are entirely unnecessary.  There’s no need to put the date; there’s no reason to put such detailed descriptions; and the referenced time of the activity around the document (March 2017) has nothing to do with the final June 2018 indictment.

So why were the details included?

My strong suspicion is the evidence against Wolfe was so important, the author believed it was going to be buried.  In the outcome of the case; the plea agreement; we can see the author’s concern was very well founded.  Indeed the DOJ did cover-up the most explosive nature of the 2017 events with Wolfe, the FISA application, the SSCI and leaks to media.

That takes us to Tuesday, October 16, 2018….

♦ A U.S. Treasury employee named Natalie Mayflower Sours-Edwards was arrested and charged with leaking to numerous reporters multiple financial reports about suspicious financial transactions related to: Paul Manafort, Richard Gates, Maria Butina, and others.

However, looking at the granular issues,… what was conspicuously absent from the DOJ press release, was that Ms. Sours-Edwards was also the source for leaks against Michael Cohen.


Why was the DOJ intentionally omitting Ms. Edwards connection to Mr. Cohen’s released financial information?   The transparent answer is Cohen’s indictment is specifically connected to Robert Mueller.  By leaving out Edwards leaking Cohen, the DOJ is essentially avoiding any connection between Ms. Edwards and Mueller’s probe.  Arguably this intentional omission was by design. [Big Picture = Mueller’s validity is protected.]

Secondarily, another curious omission within the DOJ press release.  Ms. Edwards boss; “an Associate Director of FinCen”, was a participating member of her conspiratorial conduct; yet that fact doesn’t appear anywhere except the indictment.

Additionally, even within the indictment the co-conspirator is unnamed.  Why?

The Washington Post did discover the name:

[…]  The court documents also indicate the FBI has investigated one of Edwards’s bosses, an associate director of FinCEN, noting that person exchanged 325 text messages with the reporter in question during the month when the first story appeared citing SARs reports.

The boss, referred to in court papers as Edwards “co-conspirator,” was not identified in court papers. People familiar with the case identified the person as Kip Brailey. Brailey did not respond to messages seeking comment Wednesday.

A FinCEN spokesman said Edwards has been placed on administrative leave and declined to comment about Brailey. (link)

Thirdly, if you read the indictment; read the press release; and then overlay the reporting…. what you realize is the DOJ and/or FBI did not have anything to do with catching this leaker.  She was caught by an investigation initiated by the Inspector General within the Treasury Department.

Ms. Edwards arrest was NOT the outcome of a leak hunt by Rod Rosenstein, Jeff Sessions or Christopher Wray.  Rather this leaker was caught by the Treasury IG who then forced the hand of the DOJ to act upon it. [Also HERE]  Add all this up and what becomes clear is an overarching intent to protect career officials, the larger DOJ and the validity of Mueller.

That takes us to Wednesday, October 17th, 2018….

Despite his unwillingness to testify before congress, on Wednesday Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein took the time to sit down for an interview with the Wall Street Journal defending the integrity, and validity, of the Mueller investigation:

WSJ – Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein defended the special counsel’s investigation into Russian election interference as “appropriate and independent,” a message that contrasts with President Trump’s description of the inquiry as a “witch hunt” and “rigged.”

In an expansive interview with The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday, Mr. Rosenstein offered a forceful defense of the inquiry, saying the public would have faith in its findings.

“People are entitled to be frustrated, I can accept that,” he said, in a nod to attacks on the probe from some conservatives and Republicans. “But at the end of the day, the public will have confidence that the cases we brought were warranted by the evidence, and that it was an appropriate use of resources.”

Mr. Rosenstein said the investigation has already revealed a widespread effort by Russians to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, an assertion that has been played down by Mr. Trump and repeatedly called into question by other members of the administration.  (read more)

Against the backdrop of this interview, where DAG Rosenstein was defending the integrity and validity of the Mueller investigation, a problem appears the very next day.

Thursday October 18, 2018….

A federal judge is considering whether to dismiss charges against one of Muellers Russia Conspiracy defendants, Concord LLC.  The court asks Mueller what *exactly*  is the crime the U.S. government is accusing defendant of?

The judges questioning bolsters a prior filing from Concord that Mueller has never pointed to an actual violation of law within the actions alleged upon the organization:

The court seems to agree with the challenge to Mueller’s prosecution and gives the DOJ until 10/23/18 to respond. [Read Full Filing HERE] 

Considering the prior days advocacy by DAG Rod Rosenstein for Robert Mueller, these foundational questions by the judge could not come at a worse time.  Factually it looks like this case against Concord is about to get thrown out.

So that takes us to yesterday: Friday, October 19, 2018…

All of a sudden on FRIDAY, in a conspicuous (I would say transparent) timing, DAG Rosenstein’s DOJ files another charge against a principal connected to the Concord company; a Russian national named Ms. Elena Alekseevna Khusyaynova

[Remember, on all things Russia AG Sessions is recused; so this, along with all matters of Robert Mueller is all Rod Rosenstein’s matters to handle.]

If the original, perhaps soon to be vacated, charges by Mueller were weak – the new charges by DAG Rosenstein are even more ridiculous. The DOJ is charging a Russian woman named Ms. Khusyaynova with “conspiracy to defraud the U.S.” through social media facebook memes and shit-posting on twitter.

DOJ Press Release – “A criminal complaint was unsealed in Alexandria, Virginia, today charging a Russian national for her alleged role in a Russian conspiracy to interfere in the U.S. political system, including the 2018 midterm election.” (read more)

Unlike the Mueller Concord charges, Ms. Khusyaynova is not charged with a FARA violation, or an FEC violation, or any other election type violation…. no, Mrs. Khusyaynova is charged with a single count of “conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government”.

The single charge revolves around this code:

Not only does the “conspiracy to defraud” charge look silly on its face (and most lawyers sense this is going no-where); the evidentiary content is even more silly. A ‘conspiracy to defraud’ based on memes and tweets on social media?

It is beyond goofy.

However, the component that speaks to the Rosenstein motive around the timing this goofy accusation is the actual date of the indictment filing (initially under seal), September 28th.  Why was Rosenstein sitting on it if it was so important to the midterm election? What was Rosenstein waiting for?

(Source pdf)

What the timing looks like = DAG Rosenstein looks like he sat on a silly ‘prop-up Mueller’ conspiracy filing; hopeful he wouldn’t need to use it; then came the Thursday Concord challenge and Judge’s decision and… rut roh, Rod just finished validating Mueller in an op-ed… so he quickly deployed chaff and countermeasures. [shiny things]

Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein owns the Mueller probe.  It now appears the foundation of the Mueller probe was based on an entirely false premise; that means Rosenstein manufactured an inquisition against the president for no reason.  All of the activity within the week shows the Deputy Attorney General trying to give the appearance of authenticity where there is nothing except abject inauthentic and invalid reasoning to be found.

The summary of all this DOJ activity, adds to the recent statements by FBI Christopher Wray, and goes back to the original question:

“If the FBI and DOJ were not institutionally corrupt wouldn’t we have seen multiple whistle-blowers this year?”

Yes, we would….. if it wasn’t corrupt… but it is….

It still is…

…And so we don’t.

Migration Horde Advances, Next Stop USA – Mexico Puts Up Token Resistance, Promises To Call on United Nations…

As expected the government of Mexico put up token resistance at their southern border (video laughable) and allows thousands of economic migrants passage to the U.S. Mexico border.

Rebuking the strongly worded demands of President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo the insufferable Mexican Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray tells media his country will now call on the United Nations to intervene.   Yes, it’s up to the U.N. now….


This is a transparently constructed political operation; with the migrant arrival timed to arrive at the U.S-Mexico border at the same time as the 2018 midterm election.

CTH has followed this for several years and below you will find a comprehensive time-line of the issue along with full historic citations and documents, and all the evidence of the financial motives behind much of the activity.

First, here is today’s “token resistance” from Mexican officials:

Harlan Z. Hill

Those who have followed the “border crisis” carefully will note current events are the continuance of a strategy that has played out for several years.

To really absorb the issue we must analyze current year events through the reality of prior events; we must look into the way-back machine. To that end we have read the entirety of:

    • A March 2014 Final Report from the National Center For Border Security – HERE
    • A June 2014 (Declassified) Intelligence Report on UAC’s and Central America – HERE
    • A June 2014 Congressional Research Report analyzing the prior four years of Central American UAC’s (Unaccompanied Alien Children) – HERE
    • A July 2014 internal White House and Dept. Of Homeland Security communique outlining the UAC crisis. – HERE
    • A January 2014 DHS and HHS Summary of UAC directives to include Contract Needs – HERE

Because these reports are so critical to the full understanding we have also embedded them in their pdf. entirety near the end of the timeline:

TRINIDAD-AMERICAS-SUMMIT-CHAVEZ-OBAMAApril 2009 – After a Mid-East trip to Egypt to deliver his Cairo speech, President Barack Obama travels to South America for the “Summit of the Americas“. The summit included thirty-four South American countries. Obama wanted to promote his point that relations in North and South America can be heavily improved, especially after age old ideals on immigration and commerce are dropped. Hugo Chavez warmly embraced Obama and provided a gift, a book titled “The Open Veins of Latin America“. (link)

December 2009 – November 2010 – 100% of all political effort was leveraged to create and institute the ACA or ObamaCare. All media oxygen is focused on ObamaCare 24/7.

November 2010 – President Obama is “shellacked” in Mid-Term elections. Loses control of the House of Representatives to Republicans. Biggest electoral defeat since 1918.

January 2011 – Emphasis, and political strategy changes. “Comprehensive Immigration Reform“, ie. “amnesty” becomes the mainstay approach toward retention of political power. Throughout a contentious Republican primary season, to assist their ideological traveler, the U.S. media kept the issue on the front burner.

May 2011 – President Obama travels to the Rio Grande sector of the border to push for his immigration platform (ie. Amnesty). He proclaims the border is safe and secure and famously attacks his opposition for wanting an “alligator moat”.

November 2012 – Election year campaign(s). Using wedge issues like “War on Women”, and “Immigration / Amnesty”, candidate Obama promises to push congress for “amnesty”, under the guise of “Comprehensive Immigration Reform”, if elected. President Obama wins reelection.

December 2012 – Immediately following reelection President Barack Obama signs an Executive Order creating the “Deferred Action Program“, or DACA. Allowing millions of illegal aliens to avoid deportation. (link)

According to their own documents and research, this Deferred Action Program is what the Central American communities are using as the reason for attempted immigration. In both the border control study and the DHS intelligence report the DACA program is mentioned by the people apprehended at the border in 2013 and 2014.

Obama Jesus Pose


Chart Source: 2013 DHS Yearbook of Immigration Statistics – Enforcement Analysis – Table 39:

May 2013 – President Barack Obama visits South America. Following a speech Mexican entrepreneurs, Obama then travelled to Costa Rica, his first visit as president. In addition to meetings with Costa Rican President Laura Chincilla, Obama attended a gathering of leaders from the Central American Integration System, (CAIS). The regional network includes the leaders of Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama. (link) President Obama meets with the leaders of the Central American Countries.

Summer 2013 – Numbers of Illegal Unaccompanied Minors reaching the Southern U.S. border from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua doubles. 20,000+ reach U.S. Southern border by travelling through Mexico. Media primarily ignores. (link)

uac graph 2

October 2013 – At the conclusion of the immigrant travel season. White House receives notification that tens of thousands of illegal Unaccompanied Minors should be anticipated to hit the Southern U.S. border the following Summer [2014]. An estimated 850% increase in the number of UAC’s (from 2012’s less than 10,000) was projected. (link)

January 2014 – In response to the projections, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) posts a jobs notification seeking bids to facilitate 65,000 Unaccompanied Alien Children. The posting outlines DHS and Health and Human Services (HHS) requirements for contractors to fulfill the job. (link)

February 2014 – President Obama visits Mexico for “bilateral talks”, in an unusual one day visit (link):

deferred action chart

Spring 2014 – With a full year of successful transport and border crossing without deportation – DHS begins to notice a significant uptick in the number of criminal elements from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua; which have joined with the UAC’s to gain entry. Internal DHS documents reveal the “refugee” status is now being used by both criminal cartels, and potentially by Central American government(s) to send prison inmates into the U.S. (link)

June 2014 – As expected tens of thousands of Unaccompanied Alien Children from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua hit the border and the headlines. Despite the known planning, and recently discovered prior internal notifications, the White House claims it did not see this coming. However, internal documents including a –DHS Border Security Alert– show that in March, fully three months earlier, the White House was aware of what was coming in June.

June 20th 2014 – Congressional leadership and key Latino Democrats from the Democrat Hispanic Caucus meet with representatives from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico.

[…] “As long as (U.S.) immigration reform is not approved, the exodus of children to the United States will continue,” Jorge Ramon Hernandez, the senior representative of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, said at the talks. (link)

June/July 2014 – By the end of June the media have picked up the story and it’s called “A Border Crisis”. However, the White House is desperate to avoid exposure to the known criminal elements within the story. (link)


July 3rd, 2014 – President Obama requests $3,700,000,000 ($3.7 billion) in supplemental budget appropriations to deal with the border crisis. Only $109 million is for actual border security or efforts to stop the outflow from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Growing concern amid Democrats brings out a defense position that George Bush created the crisis in 2008.

Hidden inside a massive budget request is President Obama seeking legal authorization to spend taxpayer funds for lawyers and legal proceedings on behalf of the UAC’s and their families.

In essence congress is being asked to approve the executive branch’s violation of previous immigration law. Section 292 of the Immigration and Nationality Act prohibits representation of aliens “in immigration proceedings at government expense“. President Obama is seeking authorization to use taxpayer funds to provide the Illegal Aliens with government lawyers.

It becomes increasingly obvious the spending request is to facilitate President Obama in expanding the services toward ALL illegal immigrants throughout the U.S.

The stealth nature of the request is brilliant. Once the funds are established and appropriated the administration can then use millions of taxpayer funds to essentially integrate not only the UAC’s but any illegal alien currently within the system.

The $3.7 Billion becomes the amnesty program Obama has sought but been blocked from achieving.

illegal alien 10

July 9th 2014 – Fearful that U.S. political interests might bring a halt to the outflow already in place, and/or actually result in a backlog of travelling migrants stuck at the border inside Mexico:…

[…] Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Guatemalan president Otto Perez Molina held a joint press conference in Playas de Catazaja, Mexico, to officially announce an agreement to make it easier for those making the illegal journey to the United States from Central America, to cross into Mexico.

The Southern Border Program to Improve Passage, will provide for more border checkpoints along Mexico’s border with Guatemala, and offer more protection and even emergency medical care to those making their way north. The illegal aliens will receive a so-called Regional Visitor’s Card, according to El Universal. (link)

July 10th, 2014 – Facing pushback from congress as well as sticker shock at the amount he is requesting, President Obama sends his DHS team to Capitol Hill to ramp up anxiety, and threats of consequences:

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Thursday that as many as 90,000 unaccompanied child migrants could cross the southwest border before the end of this fiscal year in September.

That will place a huge strain on immigration agencies, which will badly need new money to get through the summer, Johnson says.

The 90,000 number — the highest yet given by the administration — is spelled out in written Senate testimony by Johnson as well as Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell, who must also deal with the border crisis.

“We are preparing for a scenario in which the number of unaccompanied children apprehended at the border could reach up to 90,000 by the end of fiscal 2014,” Johnson’s testimony reads, and he bluntly warns that without an infusion of new funds, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will run out of money in August. (read more)

Not only did the White House know what was going to happen this year, as far back as 2012; but the White House actually appears to have constructed the events to fall into a very specific pattern and done NOTHING to stop the consequences from the DACA executive order issued in December 2012.

The amount of U.S. taxpayer money spent on the Illegal Alien Children, through HHS and DHS grants, since 2010 is staggering:

• Between Dec 2010 and Nov 2013, the Catholic Charities Diocese of Galveston received $15,549,078 in federal grants from Health & Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Project” with a program description of “Refugee and Entry Assistance.”

• Last year, the Catholic Charities Diocese of Fort Worth received $350,000 from Department of Homeland Security for “citizenship and education training” with a program description of “citizenship and immigration services.”

• Between September 2010 and September 2013, the Catholic Charities of Dallas received $823,658 from the Department of Homeland Security for “Citizenship Education Training” for “refugee and entrant assistance.”

From Dec 2012 to January 2014, Baptist Child & Family Services received $62,111,126 in federal grants from Health & Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Program.” (link)

CTH has tracked this issue so closely through the years it often feels futile for another reminder. However, with the insufferable political games surfacing, yet again, over the issue of illegal immigrants and children – perhaps it is worth another visit.

Understanding The Big Racket.

Massive illegal immigration is supported by both sides of the professional political machine. There are few issues more unifying for the K-Street purchased voices of DC politicians than keeping the borders open and the influx of illegal aliens as high as possible. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce pays politicians to keep this system in place.

All Democrats and most Republicans support mass immigration. Almost no DC politicians want to take action on any policy or legislation that stops the influx. There are billions at stake. None of the GOP leadership want to actually stop illegal immigration; it’s a lucrative business. Almost all of the CONservative groups and politicians lie about it.

The religious right is also part of the problem. In the past 15 years illegal immigration and refugee settlement has been financially beneficial for them. The prior actions of Ted Cruz, Glenn Beck et al show they are as committed to facilitating illegal immigration as Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Jeff Flake, Ben Sasse, Kevin McCarthy, Lisa Murkowski and the rest of the Decepticons.

Washington DC and the activist media, are infested with illegal immigration supporters; the issue is at the heart of the UniParty. Follow the money. It’s the Acorn model:

U.S. Chamber

Separating Children from Families Must End Now

Thousands of children are being forcibly removed from their parents by our government. This is not who we

There is no greater disconnect from ordinary Americans on any singular issue than the policy positions of Democrats and Republicans in Washington DC surrounding immigration. President Donald Trump is confronting their unified interests.

All political opposition to the Trump administration on this issue is structured, planned and coordinated. The issue is a valuable tool for the professional political class to sow chaos amid politicians.

The resulting crisis is useful for them; therefore they fuel the crisis.

(LINK To Data)

Southwest Key has been given $310,000,000, in taxpayer funds so far in 2018. And that’s just one company, in one part of a year. Prior CTH research showed this specific “Private Company” nets 98.76% of earnings from government grants (link).

Today … [Houston Mayor Sylvester] Turner said he met with officials from Austin-based Southwest Key Programs, the contractor that operates some of the child shelters, to ask them to reconsider their plans. A spokeswoman for Southwest Key didn’t immediately reply to an email seeking comment.

“And so there comes a point in time we draw a line and for me, the line is with these children,” said Turner during a news conference Tuesday. (link)

“The thought that they are going to be putting such little kids in an institutional setting? I mean it is hard for me to even wrap my mind around it,” said Kay Bellor, vice president for programs at Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, which provides foster care and other child welfare services to migrant children. “Toddlers are being detained.” (link)

Do you know why kids are targeted for smuggling?

They are worth more money; that’s why.

(Lutheran Immigration – Grant Link)

“Faith Based Immigration Services” is a code-speak for legalized human smuggling.

Human smuggling is big business. If you dig in to the IRS 990 forms you’ll see a lot of, well, “generous” wage/benefit perks. Golf, florists, cafe’s, mysterious leases, land purchases, third party mortgages, $$$ Spouses on the payroll, etc.

So when you’ve got each individual immigration business making multi-hundreds of millions; and politicians getting kick-backs (lobbyists); and bribes to Mexican government officials; and payments to smugglers; who do you think actually wants the business to stop?

(Data For Catholic Bishops – FY 2018)

The “faith-based” crew (Ted Cruz, Glenn Beck, etc.) don’t want it to stop, because facilitating illegal alien import is now the financial bread and butter amid groups in their base of support. The man/woman in the pew might not know; but the corporation minister, preacher or priest (inside the process) surely does.

The Wall Street, big GOPe, U.S. Chamber of Commerce crew doesn’t want it to stop because they benefit from it (cheap labor), and the taxpayers -not them- are the ones funding it.

Sad thing is, it’s you and me that are paying the South American human smugglers through U.S. taxpayer funds. Laundered through the immigration business bagmen at U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and/or, U.S. Catholic Charities, or Southwest Key Programs Inc; or Baptist Child and Family Services Emergency Management Division (BCFS-EMD), just to name a few.

These immigration groups, get *MASSIVE* HHS grants and then pay-off the DC politicians and human smugglers, including MS13. Billions of dollars are spent, and the business has exploded in the past six years.

It’s a vicious cycle. Trafficked children are more valuable than adults because the organizations involved get more funding for a child than an adult. Each illegal alien child is worth about $56,000 in grant money. The system is full of fraud.

From our prior research approximately 65% of the money they get is spent on executive pay and benefits, opaque administrative payrolls, bribes, kick-backs to DC politicians and payoffs to the South American smugglers who bring them more immigrants.

As best it can be determined, approximately 35% ($19,000) is spent on the alien/immigrant child; maybe. It gets sketchy deep in their accounting.

All of those advocates gnashing their teeth and crying on television have no idea just who is controlling this process; and immigration idiots like Ted Cruz are only adding more fuel, more money, to the bottom line:

President Trump is not only threatening to secure the border, he’s threatening a Washington DC-based business model that makes money for a lot of interests. The operation also has side benefits for the participants; child sexploitation, child labor, and yes, much worse (you can imagine).
