  • soaringvulture says:

    Just when you thought the Trump administration was full of despicable worms, they come up with a more despicable one. How many people can there be with no shame?

  • They have also taken protections off of the American Eagle….you know our national bird.2020 pplโ€ฆโ€ฆ.stop this

  • 100101mint mint101001 says:

    How much longer until the Trump Administration tries to teach the Siegfried oath in public schools any guesses

  • phantom 7 cross rose says:

    I find it absolutely amazing that any of you elitist pseudo intellectual narcissistic bubble people morons think any reasonable adult in America see you morons in mainstream media as anything other than lying disingenuous broken records, same old baseless tin foil hat conspiracies over and over for the past 3 years, I'm beginning to think alot of their names are going to show up in the Lolita flight log ๐Ÿ˜‡

  • Sharon Atkinson says:

    OMG! "IS THERE ANYTHING THAT ADMINISTRATION WILL NOT LIE ABOUT, OR TRYING TO CHANGE, ACCORDING TO TRUMP'S WISHES AND HIS OPINIONS???"

  • Do these t'rump supporting idiots even realize that 100 years ago it was their own grandparents from Ireland, Italy, and Central Europe who were being called "an invasion" by Americans who were flexing their own white nationalist bigotry? ๐Ÿค”
    Considering the collective IQ of a t'rump rally is in the single digits….prolly not. ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚

  • So why didn't they give us the statue of freedom? Who is that diety anyway? She's in the harbor in water, not on dry land! Wait a minute sailors, soldiers and prisoners get liberty…what maritime Admiralty shinanigans is this?

  • Stephen Miller needs to be deported. What is with all these recent immigrant 'white' people saying that immigration should stop? I get their families did not fight in the revolutionary war so maybe they don't get the concept of the US but seriously, they need to take their anti-immigration stance along with their support of dictator Trump and go back to where ever they are from.

  • So,I am supposed to believe that the President is somehow behind a secret attack on the Statue of Liberty. Are the Clintons involved?
    LMFAO!!! CLOWNS!!!Really, you guys should get those clown hats with the little bells on top, and those yellow and red stripped clowns shirts and those white clowns gloves, and paint your faces, and get some of those red noses. We get it!

  • Why do you deem it appropriate to show us this stuff. Man, Everybody has caught on. Trumps teachings have been taken into every home in the worldโ€”โ€œwell Mommy I watched the President tel 5 lies at breakfast and these were lied I coulf figure out. All I said was my brother is Serial killer- over the Principles loudspeakers. Dad-Did they laugh?

  • Because the poem that we all know and love is not the law of the land then we don't have any legal obligation to be some kind of Shining City upon a Hill, right? They can't make us have values or ideals…

  • You can't let EVERYBODY into The United States.
    When the poem was written there was no welfare, social security, wick, snap.
    You had to work.
    I don't want to live in an overpopulated country.
    Neither do you.

  • I want Trump and his administration to TRY and change the poem. PLEASE TRY! That will be the opening shot of the 2nd American Civil War. Once that happens, everything changes, and the racist, hate filled administration currently in control won't survive the night.

  • Richard Christie says:

    wtf is Miller's "Statue of Liberty Law of the Land" that he talks about, except pure gobbledegook, worthy of a Trump tweet.

  • I am shocked that we haven't sold her yet, since the US doesn't seem to believe in the spirit of this beautiful statue anymore. There must be a buck in turning her into scrap metal, the price of copper being high these days. I suppose we could turn her into a tacky hotel or casino for those filthy rich in cash but dirt poor in spirit.

  • They go for the Media and your History. All Dictatorships are the same. Youโ€™re sleepwalking into a Stalinist style Nazi Cult

  • Hi Ali.๐Ÿ‘‹โ˜บ.
    Exceptional reporting, Ali.๐Ÿ‘โ˜บ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.
    Keep on digging, Ali.๐Ÿ‘.
    ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰Patience democrats, patience.๐Ÿ‘.

  • Does the race baiting Left believe there was a "Welfare System in America" when the poem by the socialist Emma Lazarus was written? You had to make your own way, you couldn'tย  live off the hard work of others and "Live of the Government". If you want to come here and live, you should have to make your own way. If you can't? Sorry… We have enough poor people of all races in the U.S., so we don't need MILLIONS more, and no that's not Racist… It's a fact.

  • Thomas Moeller says:

    Mr Miller. In 1970, the US population was about 200 million and the global population was just shy of 4Billion. Currently, the US population is about 350 million (1.75x 1970) and the global population is just shy of 8Billion (2x 1970). Yes, we expect more "huddled masses" today a) because there are more people everywhere and b) there are more people in areas that can't sustain their population due to; crime, food/water shortages, political upheaval, religious persecution, general over population and many more factors. If you are so concerned, maybe consider removing yourself from the equation and make room for an immigrant to succeed in your place.
