I keep seeing articles about churches and synagogues hiding immigrants so they are not deported. I also do not get why the Pope is so adamant that there are no terrorists and that he disagrees with what President Trump is doing to rid the country of illegal aliens and why he does not want any more refugees that have not been properly vetted to enter the country. I grew up Catholic and do not know how a Pope can side with people that want to end Christianity let alone people that use violence to get their way.
DML: Barbara, I too am Catholic. Religion aside, this Pope is as liberal as they come. Nothing he says about immigration or refugees surprises me.
Keep in mind that Catholic Charities receives a great deal of money for helping illegal aliens and resettling refugees. So, although they’ll try to sell it as giving a hand to those in need, I see it more as the church holding out its hand and collecting the money.

Hey DML, I can understand why trump doesn’t want to attend the correspondents dinner, but is that exactly wise of trump not to attend?
DML: Mike, the media dinner is a night of roasting (jokes). The media hires a comedian to roast the president. And then the president roasts the media. It’s 4 hours of hard hitting jokes.
Because the situation between Trump and the press is as bad as it is, I don’t think attending the dinner is a smart move, and so I am happy he canceled. He has to ignore the media whenever possible. Plus, they would have slaughtered him with roasts. The president doesn’t like to be criticized or poked at, in general. Can you imagine the look on his face if Stephen Colbert was roasting him apart for 20 minutes: WAR.
Make no mistake, the media will never forget or forgive him for not attending their big evening. If he thinks he gets bad press now, it’s about to get worse. This is why I am so vocal about him easing back on the “fake news” tweets and comments. Let the bias be as it is — it’s always been bad for Republicans. Just do what Reagan did and smile the bias media away. That’s my opinion.
Another reason why I think Trump canceled is because the cracks were starting to show. For example, every year Bloomberg hosts one of the biggest pre-event cocktail parties, but they had already canceled the party for this year. Other outlets had done the same thing. The casts of the TV shows, VEEP and House of Cards publicly stated they were boycotting the event because of Trump. So, I think Trump canceled, in part, to get ahead of the sound bites that come with the boycotts and cancellations.
That said, I’ve been to that dinner and it’s a waste of 4 hours. I’d rather see the president spend the time on tax reform.

Hello Dennis, I want to thank you for all you are doing to provide us with unadulterated, relevant news.
I have a concern, and I would like your opinion on this topic. With the Coal Industry being put back into operation, do you think the EPA will enforce the rules on keeping mining safe for our environment and waterways. I have some liberal friends that are spreading fear and hate stories around on Facebook centered around Mr. Trump signing the newest bill. The Facebook post states that Trump is allowing the Kentucky waterways to be destroyed by dumping mining waist, and in turn poisoning the wildlife as well.
DML: If you want secure borders, liberals call you a racist. If you believe in traditional marriage, liberals call you a homophobe. When you support extreme vetting, liberals say you hate immigrants and Muslims. When you support energy development, like coal mining, liberals say you are anti-environment.
President Trump may not be perfect, but I cannot believe the man will agree to anything that hurts the waterways and wildlife in Kentucky.
You can try to tell your friend that no Republican wants dirty air or dirty water. Tell her we would like lower energy costs, and we’d like to see coal miners back to work. Sadly, I think your friend will ignore what you say until she sees for herself that the water is not polluted. Unfortunately, until then, if you want to keep the friendship, I suggest you send her cases of bottled water. If you want to make a real impact, send her cases of TRUMP ICE.
