Charles Krauthammer provides a solution to the teeming hoards of illegal invaders and the millions already here. Building the wall and protecting our borders is a key feature. His thoughts seem reasonable.
Build the wall
The Catholics did it.
My wife is Catholic and with all due respect to Catholic AMG posters, Pope Francis is an anti-capitalist idiot Socialist Leftist and is a danger to Catholicism.
Some of this dude's thoughts are:
"We can no longer trust in the unseen forces and the 'invisible hand' of the market,"
"The church sometimes has locked itself up in small things, in small-minded rules. The most important thing is the first proclamation: Jesus Christ has saved you," he said in August 2013.
During a speech in Bolivia, Pope Francis called unfettered capitalism "the dung of the devil," a comment many saw as a possible endorsement of socialism. He went on to criticize "corporations, loan agencies, certain ‘free trade’ treaties, and the imposition of measures of 'austerity.'" U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan said the pope clearly displays a warped view of capitalism having grown up in Argentina, which is rampant with corruption and doesn’t have "a true free enterprise system."
During his visit to South America this year, Morales handed the pope a small statue of Jesus crucified on a hammer and sickle — the symbol of communism — and the pope took it in his hands, accepting the gift and taking it back to his home in the Vatican.
"A number of scientific studies indicate that most global warming in recent decades is due to the great concentration of greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrogen oxides, and others) released mainly as a result of human activity," he wrote in his recent encyclical.

Technically a true statement even if you don't believe in global warming (unlike Trump, and now Pruitt, see 2:21 or so here: http://www.mediaite.com/online/this-interview-has-to-stop-scarborough-cl... ).
I don't think that it is 'technically true" that global warming (that concept is now debunked and is now called climate change) is "mainly as a result of human activity."
What you said is not what his statement said. He said, "A number of scientific studies indicate..." which is true. He made no claims whatsoever on the validity of said studies, just that they existed.
Watcher says: I don't think that it is 'technically true" that global warming (that concept is now debunked and is now called climate change) is "mainly as a result of human activity."
Spider says: I don’t think it is true that climate change is affected by human behavior. That includes the climate changes that occurred before humans behaved.
The Telegraph newspaper in the UK has published a fascinating article detailing data from the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI).
Ever since December temperatures in the Arctic have consistently been lower than minus 20 C. In April the extent of Arctic sea ice was back to where it was in April 13 years ago. Furthermore, whereas in 2008 most of the ice was extremely thin, this year most has been at least two metres thick.
The Greenland ice cap last winter increased in volume faster than at any time for years.As for those record temperatures brought in 2016 by an exceptionally strong El Niño, the satellites now show that in recent months global temperatures have plummeted by more that 0.6 degrees: just as happened 17 years ago after a similarly strong El Niño had also made 1998 the “hottest year on record”.This means the global temperature trend has now shown no further warming for 19 years. But the BBC won’t be telling us any of this. And we are still stuck with that insanely damaging Climate Change Act, which in this election will scarcely get a mention.
The Catholic bishops say…..
Human behavior and activity are, according to the most recent findings of the international scientific bodies charged with assessing climate change, contributing to a warming of the earth's climate.
Keep your eye on those sunspots folks.....they may be contributing to a cooling of the earths climate.http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/products/solar-cycle-progression
You are such a fool Spider.
I guess he referred to the report for no reason... certainly not because he thinks it is correct.
All I said was that his statement was technically true. You're the one that picked it up and ran with it.
Now don't be dense A-C. The fact the Papa cites a study is very clear he is using it to further a position and believes it to be true. Why else would he cite it?
Facts are Facts - so if you are offended - blame history
A HISTORY LESSON WE SHOULD NEVER FORGET!!!
"The war started in the 7th Century and lasted through the 17th Century.
Many will contend it never stopped; the facts below are historically correct.
That is why many of us choke when we hear someone say we will defeat or contain these Islamic terrorists in a few years, or even "30 years" as has been stated by Leon Panetta.
If the latest batch of murders, beheadings, and killing of innocent Christians has at all shocked you, it is time for you to read this compilation of historical facts about
the intense hatred that Muslims have for any and all who are not Muslims.
WE ARE THE STUPID
In 732 A.D., the Muslim Army, which was moving on Paris, was defeated and turned back at Tours, France, by Charles Martell.
In 1571 A.D., the Muslim Army/Navy was defeated by the Italians and Austrians as they tried to cross the Mediterranean to attack southern Europe in the Battle of Lepanto.
In 1683 A.D., the Turkish Muslim Army, attacking Eastern Europe, was finally defeated in the Battle of Vienna by German and Polish Christian armies.
This nonsense has been going on for 1,400 years! The sad thing is that more than half of all politicians do not even know any of this.
If these battles had not been won, we would most likely be speaking Arabic. And Christianity could be non-existent. Judaism certainly would not exist!
Reality check: A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves.
Think back: The following events are true historical facts. It has been many years since 1968, but history keeps repeating itself.
1. In 1968, Robert Kennedy was shot and killed by a Muslim male.
2. In 1972, at the Munich Olympics, Israeli athletes were kidnapped and massacred by Muslim males.
3. In 1972, a Pan Am 747 was hijacked and eventually diverted to Cairo where a fuse was lit on final approach. Shortly after landing, it was blown up by Muslim males.
4. In 1973, a Pan Am 707 was destroyed in Rome - with 33 people killed - when it was attacked with grenades by Muslim males.
5. In 1979, the United States Embassy in Iran was taken over by Muslim males.
6. During the 1980s, a number of Americans were kidnapped in Lebanon by Muslim males.
7. In 1983, the United States Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by Muslim males.
8. In 1985, the cruise ship AchilleLauro was hijacked, and a 70-year-old American passenger was murdered and thrown overboard in his wheelchair by Muslim males.
9. In 1985, TWA Flight 847 was hijacked at Athens, and a United States Navy diver - who was trying to rescue passengers - was murdered by Muslim males.
10. In 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by Muslim males.
11. In 1993, the World Trade Center was bombed for the first time by Muslim males.
12. In 1998, the United States embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by Muslim males.
13. On 09/11/01, four airliners were hijacked. Two of the planes were used as missiles to take down the World Trade Centers.
One plane crashed into the United States Pentagon, and the other plane was diverted and crashed by the passengers. Thousands of people were killed by Muslim males.
14. In 2002, the United States fought a war in Afghanistan against Muslim males.
15. In 2002, reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped and beheaded by - you guessed it - a Muslim male. (Plus two other American journalists who had just recently been beheaded.)
16. In 2013, the Boston Marathon bombing resulted in four innocent people, including a child, being killed and 264 other people injured by Muslim males.
No, I really do not see a pattern here to justify profiling.
So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone - particularly fanatics intent on killing us - airport security screeners will no long be allowed to profile certain people.
So, ask yourself: "Just how stupid are we?!?!"
Have Americans completely lost their minds or just their "power of reason?"
As the writer of the award winning story "Forrest Gump" so aptly put it, "Stupid is as stupid does."> >
You now have the opportunity to send this on to other email contacts. Please do that. Or you can just sit back, keep complaining and do nothing.
As Barack Obama said in his book: "Nothing sounds as beautiful as the Muslim evening prayers from the tower."
Wake up America!!!"
Referring to the Very Christian Containment Device around the Vatican:
TEAR DOWN THAT WALL! ;-)
Walls? What walls? They are merely symbols of……protection needed from the presence of those that would do us harm.
We need walls to protect us from missiles, and drones and ……a wall to protect us against those who would steal our private conversations….The pope needs to go preaching to the muslims.
Not the first time in history we had walls….
Sometimes I feel sorry for the pope and what sort of culture he inherited……
Vatican rocked: Police raid drug-fuelled gay orgy at cardinal's apartment.
Police entered an apartment at the former palace of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (or Holy Office) last month, not far from the Vatican City.
Top adviser to Pope charged with sexual assault offenses.
Maybe el Papa needs to rethink his personal philosophy, he may have distorted vision.
Catholic Cardinal: There's 'Serious Division in The Church,' Could 'Develop Into a Formal Schism'
Cardinal Burke, four other cardinals, and 23 Catholic scholars and priests have publicly called upon the Pope to answer this question clearly -- yes or no -- and four related questions. So far, the Pope has not responded.
Pope Francis Says America Has ‘a Distorted Vision of the World’
Bernie Sanders wife and the catholic church have a distorted vision of financing academia.
