Former Trump Aide Stephen Miller May Face Criminal Charges For Human Rights Abuses

During the four years of the Trump administration, Stephen Miller was one of failed, one-term former President Donald Trump’s closest and most influential advisers, especially on the issue of immigration, where he urged Trump to separate immigrant children from their parents and place them into internment camps reminiscent of the horrors inflicted upon Japanese Americans during the Second World War.

But if one member of Congress has her way, Miller will soon be facing charges of violating the human rights of thousands of people.

The Hill reports:

A House Democrat on Wednesday called for former Trump White House adviser Stephen Miller to be jailed, citing what she called ‘human rights violations’ at the southern border.

“Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-Texas), who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, said on The Intercept’s ‘Deconstructed’ podcast that Miller should be “behind bars” for his role in the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance border policy.

“I think he committed heinous human rights violations, and I think that those around him [who] helped plot this out should be held accountable, as well.”

And while Rep. Escobar will no doubt have plenty of Democratic colleagues who also believe Miller should indeed be locked up for the things he did to immigrants seeking asylum in the United States, she acknowledges that it will be a challenge to get the former White House adviser formally charged for his crimes against humanity:

“That is going to be very difficult, but it kills me that these people could potentially walk away and even potentially rebuild their reputations. I find them to be just among the most reprehensible, abhorrent people that our generation could have ever produced.”  

The House Judiciary Committee is currently taking a long look at the way the Trump administration dealt the issue of immigration, including the incarceration of toddlers in horrific conditions: Forced to sleep on cement floors, denied essentials such as soap and toothpaste, and treated like criminals.

For his part, Miller just formed a new legal nonprofit organization he calls America First Legal, which he claims is aimed at “resisting the radical left’s agenda.”

Sounds just like something a neo-fascist would say, doesn’t it?

Trumpers Are Absolutely Livid Joe Biden Isn’t Painting The Border Wall

Joe Biden won the 2020 election. That’s a certified fact that no right-winger can possibly dispute.

And yet, to hear a lot of the Trumpers tell it, Biden should be following up on his predecessor’s policies and make sure they’re seen through to a conclusion.

Such is the case with Trump’s infamous wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, funding for which has been eliminated by Biden because it’s a massive waste of money and won’t actually work, not to mention that the majority of Americans don’t support building such a structure.

But to hear Trump adviser Jason Miller tell it, Biden should at least agree to paint the sections of the wall that were built while Trump was still president.

According to Mediaite, Miller had this to say on The Michael Berry Show:

“All of his hard work. They won’t even paint the wall. They were supposed to paint the wall this month. So it would be a black color as opposed to the rust color because elements and such. And Biden has even stopped that.”

If the wall is so damn effective and awesome, why does it need to be painted? Will the paint magically deter those seeking to enter the United States? And why should another dime be spent on this waste of taxpayer funds?

Miller went on to whine about the way the Biden administration is handling the surge of immigrants coming to the border and seeking asylum:

“To make matters worse, Joe Biden throws gasoline all over the fire by putting Kamala Harris, Mrs. Open Borders herself, in charge of the entire Southern border? I mean if this doesn’t scare the you-know-what out of you, it should.”

First of all, there is no crisis on the border. What’s happening is a seasonal influx of immigrants and it takes place each and every year.

Also, Joe Biden won the election by being the antithesis of Donald Trump. So why in the world he suddenly start carrying on Trump’s policies?

Lindsey Graham Is Furious That Joe Biden Won’t Abuse Migrant Kids The Way Trump Did

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) likes to pretend that he’s a decent and compassionate human being, but he isn’t.

Ever since he attached himself to failed, one-term former President Donald Trump like a human carbuncle, Graham has become even more far right-wing and extremist in his policy stances and statements, almost as if he’s trying to become some sort of newfangled version of Trump. Call it Trump 2.0.

A perfect example can be found in remarks Graham made in a video he posted on Twitter on Thursday afternoon, just minutes after President Joe Biden held his first formal press conference since taking office.

In the video (which you can see below), Graham suggested that President Biden had made the problem of immigration worse, and he seemed to suggest that he’s angry because Biden won’t agree to be as cruel and inhumane to migrant children as Trump was:

“President Biden’s news conference today has made all of our immigration problems worse. . His announcement that were are going to open up 5,000 beds for unaccompanied minors is going to increase the flow. It’s clear to me that President Biden doesn’t know the basics of our own immigration system…This whole idea of doing away with the remain in Mexico policy where people had to wait for their asylum date is going to lead to a tsunami this summer.”

As you might expect, Graham was lying, and he got busted by the Washington Post, which noted that the current increase in migration on the U.S-Mexico border fits an established pattern that happens every year at this time:

“We analyzed monthly U.S. Customs and Border Protection data from 2012 through February and found no clear evidence that the overall increase in border crossings in 2021 can be attributed to Biden administration policies. Rather, the current increase fits a pattern of seasonal changes in undocumented immigration combined with a backlog of demand because of 2020s coronavirus border closure.”

As a matter of fact, the entire narrative that there’s a sudden “crisis” at the border is complete bullshit. What’s currently happening happens each and every year. It happened under Trump. It happened under Obama. It happened under Bush. So to try and pretend this is something new is an enormous lie.

Of course, as we’ve seen on too many occasions to count, Graham and the vast majority of the Republican Party are only too happy to lie. It has become their default position. They think lying worked great for Trump, completely forgetting that his lies about COVID-19 were one the main reasons he got so badly beaten by Biden.

Lindsey Graham is furious that the current president won’t act like a heartless bastard and toss migrant children into cages. But as the American electorate made clear last November, we’re better than that, and we don’t intend to ever go back to the bad old days again.

Here’s Lindsey’s video:

Maria Bartiromo Laughs At Lindsey Graham For Saying ‘1 Million’ Migrants Will Be At The Border By Summer

Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo was so stunned by a blatant lie that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told on her show Sunday morning that she couldn’t resist laughing at him as she went to commercial.

During a discussion of policies coming from the Biden administration, Graham claimed that a million people would be coming to the United States illegally:

“By the summer, you’re going to have a million people coming into this country illegally. All because the liberals can do it.”

Bartiromo, who is normally eager to back up the lies members of the GOP tell on her show, immediately pushed back on the senator, laughing as she told him:

“A million people sounds like it’s more than a couple of years totals by the way. 2021 — a million people, that’s more than ’18 and ’19.”

Desperately trying to regain his footing, Graham declared:

“Get ready for an invasion at the border.”

Fear and lies. That’s all Republicans have when it comes to “debating” anything President Joe Biden does. Not a single GOP senator cast a vote for the COVID-19 rescue package that was narrowly advanced in the upper chamber on Saturday. They have no answers, no solutions, and no facts. They just have hyperbole and bullshit. No wonder they no longer control anything in the nation’s capital.

Here’s Lindsey making a fool of himself:

There Are New Questions About How Melania Trump Came To The United States In 2001

A little more than four years ago, Donald Trump promised to fully explain how his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, came to the United States, was granted favorable visa status, and later became a U.S. citizen so quickly.


At the time, back in August of 2016, Trump said he’d be holding a press conference “over the next couple of weeks” to address the entire process regarding Melania’s journey from Slovenia to the United States and what she went through to become an American citizen.

But here we are over 48 months (or 208 weeks) later and there’s been no press conference, no further talk of Melania’s journey from Eastern Europe to the U.S., and nothing but silence when a member of the media asks the White House about the matter.

So what gives? Well, instead of having any answers, there are instead even more questions about Melania’s route from there to here, despite her husband’s bragging:

“They said my wife, Melania, might have come in illegally. Can you believe that one? Let me tell you one thing. She has got it so documented, so she’s going to have a little news conference over the next couple of weeks. That’s good. I love it. I love it.”


But instead of the promised presser, all we’ve gotten is chirping crickets. And we’re also left asking questions such as these:

  • Why did Melania get a so-called “Einstein visa” since those are usually reserved for scientists, doctors, athletes, or artistic geniuses?
  • If the current first lady speaks five languages (which she claims) why does she seem to have so much damn trouble with English?
  • When she met Donald Trump, Melania was a model. Is it really important that we allow models favored immigration status? Is there a shortage of beautiful, talented women here in the U.S.?
  • Why does the White House refuse to answer any of these questions?


Something doesn’t add up here, and considering that we know the current president lies about everything, it’s only fair that we should be suspicious about how his wife navigated the immigration system he claims is too lenient and has been working to make more restrictive since taking office,

So, Donald and Melania, can we expect a press conference or at least extensive documentation on this matter anytime soon? Or will we have to wait another four years for your reply?
