    If I added anything you would just dismiss it anyway so feel free to do your own research. And if you think about it with an open mind then you should realize that it is just common sense.
    Nah.
    The problem here is that anyone who has read anything outside of the right wing bubble understands that the paranoia you describe was manufactured for political purposes. Refusal to support fear mongering with with the source for your concern by suggesting that it will simply be dismissed couldn't be more dishonest. Common sense and familiarity with the history of these threads would suggest that rather than simply dismissing, these participants will read, dissect, and scrutinize the logic and facts of your offerings.

    WHAT IF they...

    Is it just me, or is there an undercurrent of paranoia in this concerns? Where is the evidence that supports these concerns?

    The problem with this particular funding is that they don't seem to be doing it for compassionate reasons. They are telling all these "unfortunate travelers" that they will be allowed to come into the US. The organizers know this is not true, you don't get in because of the reasons which the migrants are stating. This is a long, hard and unsafe trek for these people. It is not troubling that people are compassionate, it is troubling the way this organization is working.
    "They don't seem to be" might be a reflection of media biasthan actual fact. The media that I regularly consume doesn't promote some vague sense of uneasiness about "the organizers" or nefarious intentions.

    Which reporting gives the impression that those assisting the travelers have less than compassionate intentions, or is this sourced in the same way as Trump's "many people"?

    Why is it so troubling to conservatives that other people might be compassionate and charitable enough to help these unfortunate travelers?

    We actually can and should allow people to present themselves at our border with requests for asylum or immigration entry. That is what our country has always done as an expression of our supposed values.

    Evangelicals don't represent Christianity, they represent the religious indoctrination of social conservatism. Jesus wasn't an inconsistent ideologue and the bible tells us exactly how much He disliked their brand of oppression.

    I've always been struck by the irony of the fact that the same people who work so tirelessly to ban abortion are often the same ones who put so many roadblocks to women and men obtaining cheap (forget free altogether) and easily accessible birth control.
    All while the deeply religious voters, offended by abortion, embrace ignorance and lies to continue
    fretting about unborn babies. They pray for the fetus while ignoring the suffering of born children at every intersection of their conservative political policy with public issues.
    Children going hungry.
    Children who are homeless.
    Children with poor access to healthcare.
    Children with poor access to quality education.
    Children with poisoned municipal water.
    Children who are separated from their families intentionally at our border.

    As I've heard many a small business they, what they need is customers. Without customers they sink.

    That being said, even the left leaning Newsweek gives a glowing review?

    I still wonder if it's wise to give out tax cuts so freely, and talk about more. Good times don't always last and there's going to come a time we might regret not having the revenue as a country. I'm very frustrated with tax cuts here in Florida during good economic times which would have happened without them, when our environment is so screwed up and our education system sucks.

    The Newsweek article is an opinion piece from the Heritage Foundation POV. Mostly what it demonstrates is that the left leaning press in the USA is much more inclined to present a conservative POV than the right wing will give credit for.

    If the witness reports as written are accurate the officer who shot probably will lose his job and should be prosecuted.
    It will be interesting to see if he is held accountable or if the police investigation will find that the violence was justified.

    I really didn't get what made this article worth sharing. I am slightly amused that the Washington Free Beacon is the group that initially hired Fusion GPS to look at Trump during the early campaign.

    I understand. I'm not saying people don't post incorrect information, but when others point it out, sometimes they will say "I stand corrected" or least "I may be wrong".....often sometimes they drop the subject and don't respond.

    But the fact that some of the stuff they actually believe is quite disturbing.

    I however, have had to stand corrected many times as well.
    I could be wrong, but my impression is that those who tend toward posting conspiracy theory and false information rarely acknowledge that their information is erroneous. That is part of the frustration in interacting with many Trump supporters online. When called on bogus claims they simply move on to the next Trump conspiracy or claim without a missed step.
