The number of American churches declaring themselves sanctuaries for illegal immigrants has more than doubled since President Donald Trump was elected, but only a dozen people are known to be taking refuge there to avoid deportation. Since Trump's victory in November, about 400 churches have declared themselves sanctuaries, bringing the total to more than 800, according to Church World Service, an international humanitarian nonprofit. The surge came after Trump pledged to deport millions of undocumented people from the United States.800 "churches" offering sanctuary. A dozen people taking up the offer. Stop and think.... the "churches" obviously KNOW that nobody is taking up their offer. They KNOW that the offer is pure propaganda. Here's the real why. Roman "Churches" are Sorosian demons. Their job is to INSULT DEPLORABLES. Their job is to DESTROY CIVILIZATION. The message of Christ is simple. WE ARE COOL. YOU ARE SHIT. = = = = = ** Later: I was unfair to Reuters, which does a pretty good job of reporting unfashionable facts. What's unusual is VOA quoting the candor.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
