The Senate is Now Debating Immigration: Mr. Trump’s Four Pillars Approach is Popular Among the People.

CHEYENNE, WY – 2/15/18 – The Florida shooting has muted news that the Senate has begun debating immigration. President Trump has been clear about what he wants to see in an immigration bill in order for him to sign it. He calls his points the “four pillars.”

One: Mr. Trump wants funding for the border wall. Two: he wants an end to the “diversity lottery.” Three: he wants to end chain migration. These three “pillars” have much support from among Conservatives and other common sense citizens of our nation  who understand that these have been destructive and must be eliminated.

The fourth pillar: President Trump wants Congress to come up with a DACA fix to provide a path to citizenship for 1.8 million children brought here illegally. This one is not so popular among Trump supporters such as Ted Cruz (R-TX), but the fact that the President must give a little something in order to get the bulk of what he wants from Congress, is understood by many.

As I said above, the Senate is now debating immigration. But instead of working toward what the president wants, a group of centrists calling themselves the Common Sense Coalition, has come up with a bill that ignores Mr. Trump’s pillars. It doesn’t end chain migration or the oft-abused diversity lottery.

Recall that we’ve been down this road before. Under George H. W. Bush, popularly known as “Bush 43,” the so-called Gang of Eight, which included media darling Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY), and, I think, Senator Lindsey Graham, (R-SC), came up with an immigration bill so bad that the House refused to even vote on it.

Present polling data reflects that 70% of American voters want immigration fixed. They don’t exactly know how they want it done, but polls taken right after the President’s State of the Union address revealed overwhelming support for Mr. Trump’s approach.

Guess what? If Senate liberal leftists  and other delusional members of Congress stay on this path to failure there will not be a sensible immigration bill or a DACA fix. And they’ll deserve all the blame that can be heaped on them for failing the United States once again.

There are almost seven billion people living on this blue planet. Most, if not all of them, if given the opportunity, would opt to come to the United States. I guess, liberal Democrats, leftists, communist, socialists, progressives, and a few other “know nothings” such as the anti-sovereignty and the anti-borders crowds would like the chaos that would ensue.

The U.S. Bishops’ Christian-Muslim Dialogue – The Interfaith Delusion!

NOTE: In his first post to myturntosoundoff.wordpress.com, Frank Tryon voices his concern about the Bishops of the United States Catholic Church dialoging with various organizations of the Islamic religion. He believes that this is something about which we Christians should all be aware.

2/15/18 – CHEYENNE, WY: Frank Tryon. 

Recently I became aware of an apparently long running dialogue between the Catholic Church and representatives of the Islamic faith.  This dialogue is occurring at the Papacy level, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops level, and most recently at one of the local Catholic Parish’s level. 

I am concerned by this because, although I am no expert on the Islamic faith, I do know Islam is more than a religion.  It is also an expansionist, political, and military movement.  As such, the representatives of the Catholic Church who are participating in these various levels of dialogue should be very well-trained and educated in the theology of Islam.  They should also be knowledgeable about the activities of the organizations that represent the Islamic faith.

Along the lines of Muslim activities in the United States, one finds a multitude of Islamic organizations that range from children’s groups to college level student associations.  One that caught my eye however, was the Holy Lands Foundation for Relief and Development.  Ostensibly, this was a charity to provide support and relief to those in need in the Middle East.  In July 2007, seven leaders of this organization were put on trial for providing material and support to a foreign terrorist organization (HAMAS), money laundering, and violation of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act.  As this trial progressed the names of some three hundred individuals (all associated with Muslim Brotherhood front organizations here in the United States) were made public, and were named as unindicted co-conspirators.  Additionally some 29 Muslim Brotherhood front organizations were also named that shared the goal of dismantling U.S. institutions and turning the United States into a Muslim nation, under Sharia Law.  Two of these organizations are the Islamic Society of North America and the Islamic Circle of North America. 

The Mid-Atlantic Dialogue of Catholics and Muslims is partnered with The Islamic Circle of North America, and the Midwest Dialogue of Catholics and Muslims is partnered with the Islamic Society of North America.  As I said above, these are front organizations of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States.  This is significant because a document entitled “An Explanatory Memorandum On The General Strategic Goal For The Group In North America” was discovered in the course of the above trial.  This document lays out the strategic actions that the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States has taken, is taking, or will take to infiltrate American institutions and destroy the United States from within.  This document is available on the internet and may be found by searching using the highlighted title.  And the Catholic Church is dialoguing with these organizations.

In the September 25, 2017 issue of Crisis Magazine (also available on the web, under its’ title), William Kilpatrick wrote an article entitled “The Normalization of Delusional Thinking” in which he says:

‘The textual, historical, and statistical evidence that Islam is an aggressive religion is overwhelming, but very few are willing to look at it.  On the one side, you have a ton of hard evidence, and on the other side, you have ten megatons of wishful thinking, priests, prime ministers, and Hollywood celebrities assuring us that Islam is more peaceful than Christianity, more feminist than Gloria Steinem, and more caring than the Red Cross.”

Please find and read these documents – they are important.

Introducing Frank H. Tryon. You’re Gonna Love Him.

Cheyenne, WY: February 12, 2018 – Yes, you read the name right. But he’s no relation to Tom Tryon, the American film and television actor who played the lead role in The Cardinal, had a supporting role opposite John Wayne in In Harm’s Way, and appeared in an important part in The Longest Day.

This is Frank Tryon, and, in his own way, he is every bit as colorful – and as talented. This guy is an Irish Catholic, a former U.S. Navy SEA captain, now retired and living in Cheyenne, Wyoming after serving in the Navy for twenty-nine years, commanding four ships and three shore stations. With pride, he says he was “privileged” to serve in 692/710 Class Destroyers, a Patrol Gunboat, an LST, a Minesweeper, a Guided Missile Frigate, and an Amphibious Assault Ship.

Frank holds an MA in International Relations from the University of Southern California. Later, he also graduated from The Navy War College, The National War College, and completed sixty-two hours of post Masters work at the University of Nebraska. He has held the Chair of Naval Warfare at the National War College, and later the Chair of Naval Science at the University of Nebraska.

He has served all over the world, most notably in Viet Nam, Desert Shield, Desert Storm, and Operation Provide Comfort.

Captain Tryon will contribute occasional articles, and I feel sure he will bring a degree of expertise and a perspective to foreign and military policy that you will enjoy.

The Long Game Isn’t Enough; Time to Scale Up our Tactics

By: Bob Brown, Defend Life Newsletter, November-December 2017 Issue.

NOTE: Defend Life is a pro-life organization, of which, many years ago – more than I care to reveal – I was an Executive Director for about a year. It operates in the State of Maryland, a very Democrat, pro-abortion state, and many of the women of that State are part of the Feminist Movement, which advocates abortion as a “right.” My position, and I suspect the position of the author of this article, too, is that abortion is the killing of an unborn child and must be ended. The piece is being published here, with permission of its author.

BALTIMORE, MD – Two historical accounts of the Holocaust , including The Pope’s Jews by Gordon Thomas, are sitting on my nightstand, bookmarks protruding from their dense middles.

They are great reminders that liberation from evil doesn’t happen without great cost. (Calvary is the utmost example, of course.)

Abortion is so heinous yet so mainstream: Do we imagine it can be stopped by methods that don’t cost much?

Except for the work of pregnancy resource centers, I’m concerned that the pro-life movement’s efforts aren’t costly enough.

Sure, we march, but not under the blast of fire hoses. If legislatures kill our bills, we don’t face dismemberment. We easily busy ourselves without having a personal stake in ending abortion.

“But look at the progress we’ve made.” Actually, it’s hard to pin down the cause of the slight downturn in the abortion rate, but it’s almost certainly due equally to demographics – the more abortion-vulnerable communities not replenishing their populations – as to pro-life victories.

And with unreported chemical abortions replacing a percentage of surgical abortions, substantiating any reduction in the abortion rate is problematic.

Still, we shouldn’t abandon the long game: March, legislate, lecture, write, sell t-shirts, click “Send.” Each child saved is worth celebrating.

But remember that a 20-week (passed with life-of-the-mother/rape/incest exceptions by the House of Representatives in October but not taken up by the Senate at the time of this article) would prevent a mere three out of every 200 abortions.

It’s time to be honest: the long game isn’t enough. The American abortion industry, in power now four times longer than Hitler was, still exterminates one million children every year. Each child lost is a catastrophe. Nothing we’re currently doing gives concrete hope for radical changes anytime soon.

Here’s my point: Pro-lifers must rediscover the courage shown by the underground networks, families, and individuals who hid Jewish people from the Nazis, an illegal enterprise punishable by death.

We should be inspired by maneuvers that flouted Nazi laws, such as the issuing of phony baptismal certificates to Jewish children, gaining them passage to a safe country.

Let it be said, though, that we absolutely renounce all forms of violence. Even though our laws sanction tearing children to pieces, our resistance must be nonviolent. But we cannot exclude tactics that disregard some juridical boundaries. Is that going too far? Well, again, was hiding Jewish people going too far?

So, what is the Pro-life equivalent of hiding Jews? Well, it’s been happening in isolated pockets, but now is the time to scale up. Consider this an invitation: Church and organizational leaders should come together to work out a new, expanded agenda, inspired by what Pius XII and Vatican officials did in Rome and the entire village of Chambon-sur-Lignon did in southern France. The whole body of Christ must make protecting the innocent a 24/7 endeavor – a matter of life and death to us.

Now, you don’t have to “cross the line” to act in ways that are costly. For example, Christians have more than enough money to park a mobile sonogram vehicle outside every abortion center in the United States.

That costs serious money, but what are we throwing our money away on, or grasping it tightly for, instead? Get your church’s missions committee on board.

And there are plenty of us to maintain a regular and noticeable witness outside every abortion center. Some of us can also walk in, with gifts to offer, resource information to share, and a loving invitation to talk outside. That will cost time, but doesn’t a joyful eternity await the faithful?

Fusion GPS, The Clinton Campaign, and The Democrat National Committee. Here is Real Collusion with the Russians.

12/3/17 – Fusion GPS is not the name of a technology firm. It is the name of an opposition-research firm which was working for and being paid by the Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee.

The Clinton-DNC funding is only the tip of the iceberg; here’s a glimpse into the shady election doings concealed within that opposition-research firm’s walls. What is an opposition-research firm? It’s a group that does everything it can to find dirt on the opponents of Democrats. They are exclusively dirt diggers.

MyTurnToSoundOff has learned that in the case of this so-called Trump dossier, Marc E. Elias, a lawyer with the law firm of Perkins Coie (pronounced Perkins-Cowee), hired Fusion GPS in April 2016, to conduct opposition research on Mr. Trump and his campaign officials for the Democrat National Committee.

Fusion GPS worked on that until just days before the November election. Both the DNC and the Clinton Campaign have refused recent requests to disclose the amount paid to Fusion GPS, but MyTurnToSoundOff has learned that these two organizations split the cost between them; the Clinton Campaign paid $5.6 million and the DNC paid $3.6 million.

The so-called Trump dossier contains numerous libelous and slanderous untruths about Mr. Trump, which many who have read it claim that its author, Christopher Steele made up. It is fact that Steele hired Russians to provide the phony intelligence that went into it.

The Perkins Coie law firm worked exclusively with the Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee. Another bit of information recently was disclosed; that one of the members of this law firm worked in the Obama administration and the Clinton administration; thus the link between them, the Clinton Campaign, and the DNC is conclusive.

Yes, it’s difficult to follow this. It’s complicated, like the Uranium deal which, thanks to Mrs. Clinton and that now-infamous committee, resulted in Russia, in a round-about, convoluted way, gaining access to about 20% of our uranium reserves. But like all the Clinton doings, it is convoluted in order to obfuscate and hide the criminality aspects of their actions.

2017: Tenth Anniversary of the Wyoming Catholic College: Carol Sacco’s Icon Featured on Cover of Winter 2017 edition of College Magazine.

  1. 12/1/17 – CHEYENNE, WY: December has arrived. The countdown to the end of this wonderful year begins. And it HAS ben that – a wonderful year; good in some ways, bad in others, of course.

    One of the good things? The 10th Anniversary of the Wyoming Catholic College, a four-year coeducational College established in 2005, when Bishop David Ricken, Fr. Robert Cook, a Diocesan priest, Professor Robert Carlson, then of Casper College, and a few others held a press conference to announce its formation. I was at that press conference, and have been a believer in its goals and a supporter of the school since that time.

    Another of the good things; the Sainted Carol Sacco’s Icon of the Blessed Mother and the Christ child, a prominent theme of Christmas postage stamps here in the United States for many years, has been selected to grace the cover of the Winter 2017 issue of the Wyoming Catholic College Magazine.

    Carol painted this Icon while teaching Art and Photography at Burns Jr/Senior High School, at the request of Fr. Robert Cook the then President of the College. She donated it to the College several years ago, and it has hung in the Lobby of the School Library.

    To see her work on that cover, go to www.WYOMINGCATHOLIC.ORG or write to the school at 306 Main Street, Lander, WY 82520, or call, toll free to request a copy of the magazine, 877-332-2930.
