GOP-Boosting NRA Member Maria Butina Deported to Siberia

After spending 15 months at Florida’a least-luxurious resort, Trump Doral Tallahassee Federal Correctional Institution, the NRA Lifetime Member, unregistered Russian foreign agent, AU grad student, and GOP sexy-time associate Maria Butina was deported to Russia, landing at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport en route to her hometown, Siberia’s Barnaul. At this time we cannot confirm the deportation and Siberian exile of Butina’s US pals, who include GOP operative Paul Erickson, Trump campaign aide J.D. Gordon, NRA officials David Keene and Peter Brownell, and Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne.

Trump On Immigration

September 2, 2016

Trump On Immigration
On Wednesday, Chinese clothing importer and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump talked about immigration in Mexico and Arizona (aka Joe Arpaio‘s playpen). Mr. Trump’s immigration policy has not not changed; he is just saying different words. He may have tried out some of those new words on Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, but they dispute what was said during their closed-door meeting.

But there’s no mistaking what Donald Trump said in Phoenix. His Deportation Force would deport millions of people who have lived in the U.S. for years, breaking up families, destroying small businesses and agriculture, and hobbling the manufacturing and construction industries.

Most of the GOP’s hastily assembled “Hispanic Advisory Council for Trump” have since self-deported from the campaign, and RNC Hispanic media relations chief Ruth Guerra has resigned.

At the Phoenix rally, Rudy Giuliani and Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions sported “Make Mexico Great Again Also” baseball caps.

Celebrity Deportees

Celebrity Deportees

A citizen army of patriotic Americans has urged the Obama Administration to save our homeland from the invading northern alien and his dangerous foreign assault vehicle. Soon after Justin Bieber was arrested for drunken drag racing on the streets of Miami Beach, over 100,000 people signed a petition to deport the Labatt-crazed pop star back to his native Canada. The White House has said it will respond.

If Mr. Bieber is booted out of the States he’ll join a distinguished roster of celebrity deportees including: Marcus Garvey (deported in 1927), Emma Goldman (1919), Charles Ponzi (1934), Lucky Luciano (1946), Rosaura Revueltas (1954), Charlize Theron (1994) …. Wait a minute. Film stars Rosaura Revueltas and Charlize Theron are “Undesirable Aliens“? Get the government some glasses.
