Idiot Bureaucrats Keeping Parents From Attending Child’s Wedding

Idiot Bureaucrats Keeping Parents From Attending Child’s Wedding

By Peg Luksik

Today, I am writing as a Navy Mom.  My son, who has served for 13+ years and is now a Chief, is a “Navy Nuke” on our submarines.  In September, he is planning to marry a lovely woman who is a Moldovan national and has lived here legally for 10 years.  Her parents applied for a visitor’s visa to attend the wedding.  The application for them costs $320, which is an average month’s pay in Moldova.  They do not speak English.

They were denied.  I thought they did not properly understand the process, so I got involved.  For the second application (another $320) I had letters of support from Senator Toomey, Senator Casey, Rep. Rothfus and Rep. Lamb.  That’s two R’s and two D’s.  All four offices were very helpful.

We had to prove that the parents would return to Moldova by proving that they had property, family and employment connections.   So we supplied, with the legislative letters, copies of the deeds to their two mortgage-free properties, letters from each of their employers detailing their length of employment, letters from other family members who are not coming to the US (grandmother and parents of grandchildren), the official written permission from the Navy for my son to first date and then marry his bride, a letter from the priest performing the ceremony, and the receipts from the rental of the hall for the second reception her parents are holding in Moldova in late October.

The second interview was Aug. 7.  They were scheduled for 9  a.m..  They were made to wait until everyone else was seen, skipping their appointment time.  (Remember that this is the former USSR, where people do not complain to the governement.)  The first statement was that they had already been told no, so what in their lives changed.  The second asked them if they personally knew the Senators who had written.  They did not.  They were denied.  Again.

The State Department says there is no review.  All decisions by that bureaucrat are final.  And they say that they destroy all the documents so there is no way to see if the official is actually following the rules.  That makes that unelected bureaucrat an absolute monarch.

The legislative offices are all sorry.  But tell me there is nothing they can do.

I need to get the story out.  My son deserves better than this.  But since he is on active duty, he cannot tell the story or advocate for himself.  You will notice that I did not give you his name or where he is currently stationed.

This is not about immigration laws – we met every requirement.  This is about an unelected bureaucrat believing she is not bound by any laws but her own whims.   And a young man who has given his entire adult life to defend this nation, and now needs that nation to defend him and his bride.
The President can get that visa.  I need the story to go public.

Mrs. Luksik is a former candidate for Pennsylvania governor and a long-time activist for average citizens.

Homeschooling Vs Border Crossing

Homeschooling Vs Border Crossing — Just a question to ponder but why are Democrats OK with children being separated from their parents for homeschooling or spanking or smoking pot but not for being forced to participate in an illegal and dangerous border crossing?

Can anyone help out?

Mom Marries Daughter, Son

Mom Marries Daughter, Son — An Oklahoma woman is getting two years for marrying her daughter. Earlier she had married her son.

Hmmm. Aren’t her rights being violated or something?

When the gay marriage movement started we wondered why exactly shouldn’t a parent be allowed to use the civil marriage laws as a tax and benefit dodge for a child they loved. Isn’t that the only thing marriage is about? Love?

We weren’t alone albeit those who broached the subject got a lot of H8 and had to repent even if they were Oscar winners.

Did you know Social Security benefits transfer to surviving spouses if the marriage is at least nine months old?

Broward Sheriff Wants Participation Trophy

Broward Sheriff Wants Participation Trophy — Broward County, FL Sheriff Scott Israel, yesterday (Feb. 24) on CNN’s “State of the Union” responded to criticism about his department’s feckless response to the Parkland school massacre that saw 17 students and teachers murdered in cold blood with 14 others wounded.

“I’ve given amazing leadership to this agency,” Israel told Jack Tapper.

He specifically refused to take responsibility for keeping guns out of the hands of Nikolas Cruz despite his deputies having contact with the twisted puppy at least 23 times before Feb. 14.

He said his boys and girls did everything right.

It sounds like Israel, a Democrat, got a lot of participation trophies growing up.

Gay Extremist Gift Gets Wagner Grief

Gay Extremist Gift Gets Wagner Grief
Fun to stay at the YWCA?

Gay Extremist Gift Gets Wagner Grief  — A $5,000 contribution by a gay extremist in 2015 to a political action committee headed by Scott Wagner is getting the GOP gubernatorial hopeful quite a bit of grief.

A lot, lot of grief.

The money was given by Tim Gill to Reform PA PAC,  which Wagner chairs. Wagner won an historic write-in special election in March 2014 to represent the York County-centered 28th District. He campaigned as a Tea Party candidate against corruption, cronyism and indifference by the Republican establishment.

He won a full term that fall.

While Wagner has been outspokenly good on certain issues such as the state’s scandalous pension system, he seems to have managed to get himself most identified with a bizarre crusade to prohibit businesses and institutions from making distinctions based on biological sex.

He has co-sponsored a series of “bathroom bills“, a term with which Wagner wrongly takes issue  as there is no doubt that these bills would  grant by-right access for males calling themselves female to women’s restrooms and girls’ school sports.

Wagner has said that ending privacy for women (and girls) was not his intent and that he merely wants to stop LGBQWHATEVER people from being discriminated by business.

That’s almost as bad, Scott. The elimination of  the concept of “protected groups” should be the goal of decent, thinking people, not their expansion.

Being a member of a “protected group” is not helpful. Business owners — as we’d expect you to understand — base the vast majority of hiring decisions on whether the employee will make life easier. Protected group membership is something that makes business owners walk on eggshells and that is, by far, the main reason protected group members face — understandable — discrimination.

Gays, who are not yet a protected group, certainly aren’t facing economic hardship in this country and that gets us to Tim Gill.

Gill is the mega-rich gay extremist who wants to “punish” those who question his lifestyle choices. This always means stifling debate about legitimate concerns and usually means personal destruction. He is a bad, corrupting man.

Women Marching Tools Bow To Islam

Women Marching Tools Bow To Islam — Dom Giordano, today, brought up the mind-blowing hypocrisy of feminists and liberal politicians regarding issues of Islam.

He noted that thousands of women in the country suffer the perverse cruelty of female genital mutilation yet attempts to outlaw it go nowhere.

He noted though that a pending bill introduced by State Rep. Thomas Murt (R-152)   to protect at least 6,000 at-risk Pennsylvania girl remains alive.

The weak-minded, stupid people who ostentatiously marched Saturday in alleged defense of the female sex avoid the real issues as if the issues were clones of Louis C.K. and Harvey Weinstein.

Culture matters. Islam is a bad culture. We better be willing to stand up to it.

Especially you pink-hat wearing ladies.

Male feminist Joe Scarborough with his latest gal, Mika.

Morning Joe Feminist Anthem — In what may be the most nauseating occurrence of the new year, MSNBC host and Elvis (Costello) wannabe Morning Joe Scarborough has released an anthem for today’s anti-Republican “Women’s” March.

Wonder what wives 1 and 2, think about the hipster’s new-found feminism.

Scottevest Mocks Customers Or Idiocracy In Action

Scottevest Mocks Customers Or Idiocracy In Action — ScotteVest advertises heavily on Fox News and seems like a good idea. It’s a lot more practical, after all, to carry a smart phone in a vest pocket than one’s pants or purse, and this is equally true of things like wallets and keys.

So it was getting a lot of sales. It was by his own admission making founder and CEO Scott Jordan rich.

Then on Sunday (Jan. 14) he put this on Facebook:

“I love meeting new people that recognize me and my company from all of our television commercials. I am on the ski lift and the following exchange just happened and happens often. I ask “what network they saw me?” Invariable people say FOXNews. I laugh to myself, and tell that that we primarily advertise on Fox because we find their viewership to be extremely gullible and much easier to sell than other networks. The look on their face at that time is priceless. I am not kidding you. I get to tell them they are f*cking idiots while getting rich off them.” 

Whoa.

Beam me up Scotte. Real slick move there.

The rest of the corporation quickly went into damage control mode saying “In 2017, Mr. Jordan stepped down from the management of SCOTTeVEST and he is not involved in our daily operations. We are extremely sorry for his unacceptable comments. Mr. Jordan’s post was impulsive and inappropriate for too many reasons to list, and rightfully offended so many people.”

Just the same when the founder thinks only idiots would buy his product it does make one go hmmm.

Conservatives are far more likely to choose substance over style and, as noted, pocketed vests are practical so it makes sense for a vest maker to target conservatives. On the other hand it is equally true that ScotteVests are ugly as all. There is no reason one can’t have looks and practicality. Pick up a old suit vest at a thrift store. Make your own fashion statement. Go for the Mississippi gambler look. Yancy Derringer had taste. Eventually, someone in the clothing industry will get it right.

ScotteVest doesn’t deserve your business and Scott Jordan doesn’t deserve to be rich.

Season Reason Bugs HOA In Gettysburg

Season Reason Bugs HOA — A homeowners association in Gettysburg ordered Mark and Lynn Wivell to remove the word “Jesus” from a Christmas display.

HOAs are notorious for their enforcement of conformity and lack of respect for the wishes of the residents to personalize their abodes, still this association allowed for Christmas decorations.

A resident, though, apparently offended by the reason for the season, complained and the timid mice who run things danced to the complainer’s tune rather than let matters run their inevitable course namely the word’s removal in mid-January.

The Wivells say the plan on keeping the word as part of their display until the schedule time to take it down on Jan. 15.

Good for the Wivells. How about just following the principle that if someone is not hurting you just let them be?

Hat tip Bob Small.

Liberal Women Weak And Meek

Liberal Women Weak And Meek –For those who have long believed that liberal “progressive” Democrat-voting women were not “strong and independent” but weak, stupid, and easily cowed hypocrites, well, it looks your instincts were right.

Liberal Women Weak And Meek
Premier Kathleen Wynne knows her place in Sharia it seems.

Kathleen Wynne is the premier of Ontario. She is a lesbian, ultra-liberal and an outspoken feminist. After a mass shooting at a Quebec City mosque on Jan. 29 that left six dead and 19 injured — how did that happen anyway, don’t they have gun control in Canada?? — she decided to show solidarity by visiting a mosque in Toronto.

So what happened? They made the province’s leading politician put on a head covering and sit on a rickety folding chair way back in a corner well behind the men. If a woman is in front of a man as he is praying, his prayer is invalidated, after all.

And of course, unlike a pro-life conservative woman, she meekly accepted.Liberal Women Weak And Meek

Oh, and the subject of the sermon was the evils of homosexuality.

She has yet to lead a demonstration against it.
