Previously Deported Gang Member, Child Sex Offenders Busted Crossing Border

Border Patrol agents assigned to the Tucson Sector arrested two previously deported child sex offenders and a member of the Sureño 13 street gang illegally re-entering the U.S.

The arrests began on Saturday afternoon when agents working from the Brian A. Terry Border Patrol Station captured a man illegally crossing the border near Naco, Arizona. Agents arrested and transported him to the station for processing. During a background investigation, the agents learned that 34-year-old Abigael Calvo-Calvo, a Mexican national, has a criminal history that includes a conviction in San Mateo County, California, for “Lewd and Lascivious Acts with a Child Under 14.” The conviction occurred in 2012, according to information provided to Breitbart Texas by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) spokesman Rob Daniels.
Calvo-Calvo now faces new criminal charges for felony re-entry after being deported as a registered sex offender.
The following evening, Agents from the Douglas Station found another man crossing west of Douglas, Arizona. During processing, the agents determined the identity of 33-year-old Juan Herrera-Gameros, a Mexican national. A records check revealed a 2005 conviction in Cochise County Superior Court for “Sexual Conduct with a Child,” officials stated. Herrera-Gameros also faces charges of re-entry after being deported as a sex offender.

Brian A. Terry Station agents also stopped another potentially violent illegal immigrant from re-entering the U.S. The agents arrested 28-year-old Pedro Castro-Guillen, a Mexican national, after he crossed west of Naco. A records check uncovered a prior deportation due to his membership in the Sureño 13 street gang. Officials stated that Castro-Guillen will face criminal charges for immigration violations.
The Brian A. Terry Border Patrol Station is named in honor of slain Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry who was killed by a Mexican “rip crew” in southern Arizona on December 14, 2010. Agent Terry’s murder led to the disclosure of the Obama Administration’s Fast and Furious gun running scheme that put thousands of guns in the hands of Mexican criminals.
Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon spoke at a banquet honoring Agent Terry on Saturday, Breitbart News’ Michelle Moons reported.
“Greater love hath no man than this, that he will lay down his life for his friend,” Bannon told attendees of the annual Brian Terry Foundation Courage Awards Dinner. “Brian Terry laid down his life for his friends, his family, his community, and his country. I don’t think you’ll meet a braver man.”
Bannon told Terry’s family and friends that his murder helped make border security a major issue for the 2016 presidential campaign.

“I can tell you, [Donald Trump] wouldn’t be President of the United States if [not for] the incident that happened here,” Bannon said. “Brian Terry will live in history as a historical figure and the reason was, he brought to the attention of the American people, he put a human face on it, he put a hero’s face on it, of what is exactly at risk on the southern border of our country.”

Fusion GPS Paid Liberal Reporters to Push Their Propaganda That Was Funded by Russians

Unsealed court documents reveal that Fusion GPS, the firm behind the salacious 34-page Trump-Russia Dossier, was paid $523,000 by a Russian businessman convicted of tax fraud and money laundering.
The Russian businessman’s lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, was a key figure in the infamous June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower arranged by Fusion GPS associate Rob Goldstone.

And now this…

Fusion GPS was paying liberal reporters between June 2016 and Februaryto push their propaganda.

Newly filed court documents confirm that Fusion GPS, the company mostly responsible for the controversial “Trump dossier” on presidential candidate Donald Trump, made payments to three journalists between June 2016 until February 2017.
The revelation could be a breakthrough for House Republicans, who are exploring whether Fusion GPS used the dossier, which was later criticized for having inaccurate information on Trump, to feed anti-Trump stories to the press during and after the presidential campaign. The three journalists who were paid by Fusion GPS are known to have reported on “Russia issues relevant to [the committee’s] investigation,” the House Intelligence Committee said in a court filing.
But the recipients’ names, the amounts, and purposes of those payments were either redacted from the documents that Fusion GPS filed to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia or were not disclosed.
Fusion has asked the court to issue a restraining order against the House committee, which is demanding documents from the company that, among other things, explain the payments it made to reporters. Most of the documents sought are banking records.

Trump’s DOJ Stripping Citizenship from Child Molesters Obama Let Stay

Democrats attempt to portray themselves as the party that stands up for the well-being and safety of children — aside from their support of unlimited abortion, of course.
But recent news out of the Department of Justice would seem to belie that claim, as several immigrants naturalized as citizens who had been convicted of sexual crimes against minors were permitted to retain their citizenship and remain in the country during former President Barack Obama’s term in office.
Fox News first reported on lawsuits filed by the DOJ against five individuals to revoke their citizenship due to their having pleaded guilty to sex crimes against minors that occurred prior to being naturalized.
According to the Immigration and Nationality Act, individuals who obtain citizenship through the fraudulent concealment of disqualifying information can have their naturalized citizenship revoked — a common sense statute if there ever was one.
“Committing fraud in any immigration matter undermines the integrity of our immigration system, and is a betrayal of the American people’s generosity,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions stated in a DOJ press release. “It is especially appalling when it also involves the sexual abuse of children.”

“The Department of Justice has a duty to prosecute these crimes vigorously, particularly so for individuals who commit fraud in the naturalization process,” he continued. “I am confident that justice will be done in these cases.”
“This Department will continue to fight to denaturalize immigration fraudsters and to protect the American people from sex offenders,” he added.
The release pointed out that all five individuals had committed crimes of a sexual nature against minors prior to being naturalized as citizens, which would render them ineligible for citizenship. However, they willfully concealed those crimes in the naturalization process, meaning they defrauded the government and should have their fraudulent citizenship status revoked.
All five cases had been referred to the DOJ by the Department of Homeland Security, specifically Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection, with an investigative assistant from Citizenship and Immigration Services.
“I commend the DHS personnel working diligently to remove dangerous criminals from our streets,” stated Elaine Duke, acting secretary of DHS. “Those who unlawfully procured citizenship by concealing crimes — especially sexual abuse of minors — should have their citizenship revoked.”
The release proceeded to detail the specifics of the five individuals whose citizenship should be revoked, and it is noteworthy that three of the five were naturalized at the tail end of the Clinton administration, one was naturalized a month after former President George W. Bush took office, and the fifth gained citizenship in 2004.
All pleaded guilty at some point to charges that stemmed from crimes committed prior to becoming a citizen, yet nothing was ever done about it, even as their guilt clearly disqualified them from retaining their citizenship.
Indeed, Obama allowed convicted child molesters to stay in the country and retain their naturalized citizenship, as did Bush and Clinton.

As Front Page Mag pointed out, denaturalization is a basic tool of the government that can be used to strip the citizenship from individuals who never should have received it in the first place.
Unfortunately, as we saw through the Obama years, it was used far too infrequently, if at all. In fact, its infrequent use by Obama’s administration allowed convicted child molesters who had been naturalized — not to mention radicalized Islamist terrorists — to remain U.S. citizens even as they posed a real threat to society.
Thankfully, President Donald Trump and AG Sessions have put the safety and well-being of our nation and children ahead of the citizenship of criminal immigrants — as it should be.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter so everyone can see how President Trump and Jeff Sessions are seeking to denaturalize the citizenship of immigrants who committed sexual crimes against children.

The Other Side Is Desperate to Rehab Its Reprobates

RUSH: We got Laurie in Davenport, Florida, back. Where’s Davenport, Florida, Laurie?
CALLER: Hi, Rush. It’s just south of Disney.
RUSH: Oh, okay. Cool. Well, welcome. I’m glad that you made it back.
CALLER: Thank you. Rush, this Thanksgiving, I am so thankful for you. You’ve been an important part of our family. We pray for you, your staff, and your family. We love you dearly.
RUSH: I thank you. You don’t know how much that means. I truly appreciate it. Thank you.
CALLER: You are a member of our family. Rush, I’m 55, and I never thought I would see the day — I know sometimes we want to grab on to the little scandals on the other side and pray that this is the moment where they finally get what’s coming to ’em. But I have never seen these top tier people, the Democrats, the media people, Hollywood, the Disney guy, the hypocrisy of all this. They’re frauds, and their own are having to report on it and I’m watching them eat their own.
And doesn’t it prove President Trump correct: They’re all fake, they’re all frauds, these go-to people that have been lecturing me my whole life. I used to listen to them. I thought they were the smartest people. How do they survive it? I don’t understand it. And let me say, too, I used to listen to them until I found you, and I have my husband to thank for that.
RUSH: Me too. Thank you, Laurie’s husband.
CALLER: I was so happy. You know, I’ll never forget when we heard you for the first time. My mouth fell open. In fact, I nearly delivered our son in the car early I was laughing so hard.
RUSH: Ho-ho-ho. Whoa ho. That could be good or bad. I’ll take it as a compliment.
CALLER: It’s a compliment.
RUSH: Well, you know, it’s an interesting question: What is gonna happen to these people? You know behind the scenes reclamation projects are underway. Like CBS is gonna try to find a way to get Charlie Rose back, and Bloomberg is gonna try to find a way to get him back. The guys on the other side of the glass are shaking their head, “No way, they went too far.”
CALLER: It’s across the board.
RUSH: They’re gonna try to find a way to bring ’em back. They have to for the sake of the movement. They can’t let these guys end up being the legacy and the faces of liberal media. But, look, it’s a fascinating question. I myself have been asking where does this bottom out and how do they deal with it, and I’m not yet certain that I know. But look, hang on, Laurie, one more thing on this.
RUSH: Okay. Back to Laurie in Davenport, Florida, which is near Disney. So what do you think is gonna happen? What do you think is gonna happen to these guys, the media people you mentioned? I guarantee you, you think it’s odd when I say that they’re gonna bring Charlie Rose back or try to. They’re trying to hold onto Al Franken. They’re trying to do everything they can to hold onto Al Franken. They’re doing everything they can to hold onto John Conyers. They’re doing everything they can. So what do you think voters are gonna do in response to this?
CALLER: Well, these same people are also up in age. It also shows how irrelevant and out of touch they are. I don’t see that they have a bench. I can’t imagine. For the first time in my life I feel like they are in deep panic with the Clintons, with what’s coming out with this uranium scandal. That’s another thing. How does Mueller survive this? Because he’s attached to this as well. He’s gotta know that the FBI informant’s coming out. It feels like it’s all imploding at once.
RUSH: I don’t think they ever see things this way. I’ve noticed this my entire career. You have just described what would be a natural human reaction if it were you and me that were caught up in these scandals. But that’s not how these people think. In their minds, Laurie, they have the power to massage this or change this to look like anything else, something else, anything other than something that indicts them or encompasses them. I don’t think they worry about this at all.
I think their strategizing is all calculation, like I said yesterday. They’re not worried that things are imploding on the Clintons. If anything, they’re happy about it. They want the Clintons gone, precisely as you mentioned the lack of a bench. The Clintons’ scandals can’t be massaged any longer, but the Clintons have served their purpose.
I’m sure that Robert Mueller doesn’t give a second of a thought at any time to any trouble he’s in. In his mind, he’s the one with the power to destroy people, and at some point he’s gonna try. At some point he’s gonna lower the boom. At some point Mueller is gonna try to take Trump out. Robert Mueller’s not running around saying, “Oh, my God, I’m indicted, I might be part of this Uranium One thing.” In their minds they’ve got the power to keep everybody’s focus and attention away from that.
They own the court system. They don’t feel vulnerable. It’s not part of who they are. They don’t approach these things this way. In their minds, they never are out of control. In their minds, they are never out of power. And one of the reasons is they’ve always got the media. The media can always bend and shape anything to a favorable position or outcome for people on the left. Laurie thanks for the call. I really appreciate, and I’m flattered to no end of your kind comments at the beginning of your call.
But let’s get down and dirty on — no, wrong phase. Not “down and dirty.” What I mean is let’s really examine some of these allegations and complaints of the behavior of some of these liberal men, both in media and in politics and in entertainment, the way they have treated these women.
Now, I have always made the point on this program, in my anti-feminist screeds and so forth, that, in my view, in a civilized society, in my view it’s always been women who hold all the cards, the women who actually have the power. I don’t mean the power to destroy or the power to control. I’m talking about literally in terms of control of circumstances, women and the pursuit of women is what makes the world go round. And it always has. That and the pursuit of money.
This is not sexist. This is not anything negative. And what I mean by it is in a civilized society when a woman says “no,” you obey. When a woman says “no,” okay, you don’t force yourself, you don’t deny. A woman says “no,” you ask her to marry her, she says “no,” you don’t go ahead and schedule the wedding and drag her there by the hair and make the priest do it. She says “no,” it’s “no.” First date, kiss, any more, whatever she says goes, in a civilized society.
These guys are not civilized. These guys are not what I’m talking about. These guys force themselves on women who did not have any power precisely because these were the not romantic circumstances. These were office workspace business scenarios. And these guys telling us all these years that they’re the sensitive ones and that they are the ones with compassion and tolerance and all that other left-wing gooey stuff, totally wrong. These are nothing but mean, power-mad, rude, extreme people who are not nice, have no manners. It cuts down to nothing more complicated than that.
And so these guys that are all caught up in all of this, they engage in a kind of behavior that is unacceptable in civilized circumstances. They take advantage of the power they have, and they use it and they wield it and they do it to inflict pain, they do it to inflict emotional and psychological suffering. And who are these guys? Well, before all it is happened, these are the people we think are cool. These are the people we’re told are hip. These are the people we’re told that understand women and women’s issues, and they respect women, and they’re good feminists and all this, and nothing could be further from the truth.
And this is exposing so much about who these guys really are, who these people really are. Now, I will admit I’m accepting the word of these women ’cause the men I’m talking about have all willingly left their jobs or have been forced out, did not object, they’ve not claimed that it’s all lies. They’re off at sex rehab or they’re still in a state of denial to one degree or another. But there’s nothing redeeming about these guys. There’s nothing about them that would be anything you would want to emulate, not in a civilized society.
And I think a lot of this, if I may delve even deeper, I think part of this is because these guys have struck out with women on their own throughout much of their lives. And this is only way that they have been able to get attention or affection. That’s not what it is, but in my explanation here. These are guys I think have been rejected time and again. So they’ve gone into various businesses where they have power and the power attracts women because the women also want to be in these businesses and succeed in them.
But I think this is pretty sick stuff. These guys are — well, there’s nothing redeeming about them. But all this time, liberal women have protected them. Liberal women, feminists have done their best. Something has caused the dam to break now. Don’t know what it is. There’s obviously a simple, easy explanation for this. But now the truth is coming out about all of these people. And before any of this happened, like Laurie said, these were respected people.
At some point in your life, you trusted them, if they were in the news and reporting the news and telling you what happened. If they were actors or producers, you had respect for their work. But now all that’s out the window. And I think we’re seeing exactly who these people have always been. Make no mistake about it. The Democrat Party is trying to hold onto Al Franken. The Democrat Party is trying to hold on to John Conyers. It’s easier to throw a Weinstein overboard. It’s easier to throw a Charlie Rose overboard.
CBS is begging The Oprah to come in and replace Charlie Rose until Christmas. They’re begging The Oprah to sit in Charlie Rose’s chair two or three times a week just until they can figure out who they want to replace Charlie with. Halperin’s gone. They didn’t take much time. On the media side, they didn’t take much time, they didn’t make much of an effort to save these guys. The word came out and they were gone. But it doesn’t mean they’re not gonna try to rehab them and get ’em back.
It’s just like Dan Rather, folks. Dan Rather totally makes up that National Guard story about George W. Bush. Now, CBS didn’t rehire him, and neither did ABC or NBC, but he’s working and he’s doing news and he’s reporting and he’s a guest on these shows, late-night comedy shows. He’s a guest on MSNBC. He is not totally shamed out of the business.
The guy broke every rule of journalists. He made it up. He utilized forged documents. He was driven by an agenda to affect the outcome of an election, George W. Bush. He was trying to kick and force George W. Bush out of office. Got caught. And the deans of journalism circled the wagons and tried to protect him. They gave him awards at dinners, new awards they manufactured just to give him.
Because what’s at stake here is the movement, the cause, liberalism. And they cannot allow these guys, the Weinsteins, the Charlie Roses, the Mark Halperins, we’re up to 40 guys now. They can’t allow these people to become the face or legacy of liberalism, so they’re gonna have to try to rehab them somehow.
They may not get their jobs back. But I’ll guarantee you every one of them down the road we’re gonna get stories on how they had to really come to grips with the demons they faced, and they went to rehab or they went wherever and they got therapy and they’ve come to grips and they have now offered deep and personal apologies to every woman they abused, offended, harassed, what have you. Those stories are coming, the rehabilitation stories, the “I’ve seen the light,” the “I saw the light,” the “I have been cleansed.” Those stories will happen because the left cannot afford for them not to.
RUSH: I’ll give you two more examples. Brian Williams didn’t just make things up. Brian Williams put himself in the stories that he made up. The way he made things up was to put himself in stories. Now, NBC suspended him for a period of time while they supposedly wrung their hands in the corporate executive suite trying to figure out what to do, how do we deal with this.
It ought not be anything that takes more than five minutes to figure out. The guy is a journalist, he’s an anchor, and he’s making it up on the NBC Nightly News, and he is making himself a part of the story. There’s no decision. But they took six months with it, and he’s back on the air at MSNBC anchoring a newscast. So don’t tell me they don’t try to save these people.
The New York Times’ Glenn Thrush, formally of The Politico, we had news of him. He’s the latest or one of the latest men to be accused of sexual harassment by women. The New York Times is torn about whether to suspend him and fire him. Vanity Fair: “The Times Is ‘Torn’ About Whether Glenn Thrush Should Lose His Job.”
They’re not torn about whether Roy Moore ought to be drummed out of a campaign. They are not torn about anything when it involves what they consider to be moral depravity on the part of the right-wingers. But when it comes to their people, it’s a gray area. On the one hand, women are to be believed. We have to believe the women.
“Well, I don’t know. The women in the Glenn Thrush case were a little drunk in the bar, and so was Glenn Thrush.” Wait a minute. What happened to women are to be to believed? “Well, it’s a gray area.” What about Juanita Broaddrick? Juanita Broaddrick, forcible rape, Bill Clinton, do you believe her? “Well, I don’t know.” See? Do not ever doubt me telling you who these people are and how they operate.


The Illogical Attacks on Judge Moore

They play the race card.  If that doesn't stick, they toss out the gender card, as they have with Judge Moore.  If the opponent survives these attacks, then it's the class card, as it was with Mitt Romney.  If none of this works, it's the LGBT card.  Then there's the "E" card – just "too extreme," as with Barry Goldwater and Judge Bork.  When all of these fail, as they did against candidate Donald Trump – and all of them were played – the left freaks out and starts throwing things.
All of these attacks are versions of the same logical fallacy: the ad hominem argument.  Ad hominem attacks are called "fallacies" because they have nothing to do with logic per se.  They intentionally deflect the discussion from ideas to personal issues instead of policy ideas or questions about one's ability to perform the job.  The fact that Mitt Romney's wife owned two Cadillacs, something clueless Romney cited as evidence of her unpretentiousness (Cadillac, not Mercedes – get it?), was held up as damning evidence that the candidate was out of touch.  In one poll, two thirds of respondents stated their opinion that Romney "doesn't care about people like me."  It was over after that, all without discussion of a single idea.
By its very nature, ad hominem is an "impure" form of debate.  It shifts the argument to the level of schoolyard accusations: "I don't like you because you're not nice."  "No, you're the one who's not nice."  That pretty much sums up the Democratic Party's line, especially since the 2000 election.  (Don't vote for Bush – he's a "cowboy," and his supporters are "bushies."  Does that make sense?)
Actually, in the case of Judge Moore, as it was with Clarence Thomas, "I don't like you because you're not nice" presupposes that one's opponent actually, in some respect, is not nice.  In the case of Judge Moore, it's "I don't like you because you may have made advances to young women 38 years ago, although no compelling evidence of such exists."  In other words, it's not just ad hominem, but ad hominem based on a personal failing that may or may not exist.
The clincher in the Moore case is the accusation, first published in the Washington Post, that he once made advances on a fourteen-year-old girl.  The idea of an adult male molesting a fourteen-year-old girl touches a primal nerve.  It violates a sacred taboo and evokes a primitive response.  It is all too easy to jump from accusation to condemnation without considering the facts or applying logic.

Several facts in the Moore case need to be considered.  The charges of sexual misconduct relate to events that supposedly took place 38 years ago.  Why were no charges made public until now, just weeks before a critical U.S. Senate race?  How is it that a man charged by four accusers with making advances on them, all but one of legal age at the time, has maintained his reputation and his marriage for so many years without scandal?  Why is it that only at this moment have several women have come forward claiming sexual impropriety?
Logic would tell us that the charges against Judge Moore are not just "related" to the Senate race – they are the result of his candidacy in a race that may decide control of the Senate in 2018.  Unless more convincing evidence can be produced of criminal activity or of a serious moral offense – and the only accusation of this so far comes from one woman relating two incidents – Moore must be presumed innocent until proven guilty.
There is also the question of the reliability of witnesses.  One of Moore's accusershas links to the Hillary Clinton campaign.  What about the others?  The chief accuser in this case says she "thought about" coming forward years ago but chose not to.  Why has she chosen to come forward now, only after being contacted and repeatedly interviewed by investigative journalists from the Washington Post?
The charges against Moore stand in stark contrast to those against Al Franken.  Everyone has seen the photograph of a smirking Franken fondling the sleeping Leeann Tweeden.  One photograph may or may not be grounds for expulsion from the Senate, but is there other incontrovertible evidence of sexual misconduct of a criminal nature?  In fact, there are other accusers coming forward, one of them claiming she possesses evidence of stalking and harassment.  In Moore's case, it is one person's word, corroborated by hearsay, against another.  In Franken's, it is right before your eyes.
Liberals are masters at using ad hominem and other cheap forms of attack.  In their book, every conservative is automatically a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, or a madman ready to unleash a nuclear war until proven otherwise.  Conservatives are by nature hesitant to use this kind of tactics, partly, I suppose, because they are too proud to stoop that low.
For the record, I believe that if the allegation of sexual conduct with a fourteen-year-old girl is proven, Moore should step down immediately – just as I believe that there may also be a good case for expelling Al Franken from the Senate.
Hopefully, the people of Alabama will stand up and reject the left's ad hominem attacks on Judge Moore.  Perhaps the guilty party in the Alabama Senate race is not Judge Moore, but those who have drummed up the charges against him.  Until proven otherwise, Judge Moore must be presumed innocent.
If the left is successful in defeating Judge Moore, this will usher in a new phase of debasement in American politics.  From that moment on, it won't be necessary to bring charges and prove them.  All that will be required is to concoct the most salacious account of personal misconduct and find those willing to repeat the tale.
If we enter this new phase of politics, Judge Moore and Al Franken won't be the last of it.  Every candidate for public office will put his reputation at risk.  Elections will be fought on the basis of who can concoct the most sensational story.  We will have moved so far beyond logic that ideas will become irrelevant and character a mere figment of the imagination.
