Rachel Maddow gets her hands on a DHS intelligence document. There is not going to be any Muslim ban.

Courtesy of The Hill: 

A new U.S. Department of Homeland Security report obtained by MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show" on Thursday finds that most foreign-born U.S. violent extremists are radicalized "several years after" they enter the country. 

"We assess that most foreign-born, U.S.-based violent extremists likely radicalized several years after their entry to the United States ... limiting the ability of screening and vetting officials to prevent their entry because of National Security concerns," read the document, which DHS verified to MSNBC. 

The intelligence assessment is titled “Most foreign-born U.S.-based violent extremists radicalized after entering Homeland; opportunities for tailored CVE programs exist,” and is dated March 1, 2017.

Rachel has been KILLING it lately.

Which just makes the trolls who come here to insult her seem even more laughable. 

REAL journalism is on the upswing and it is kicking the ass of Trump's fake news.

    Americans radicalize foreign-born US extremists when after several years they are not accepted and marginalized. Case in point: the refugees walking over the Canadian border in the snow to escape welcoming Americans.

      I kinda feel certain bad actors employed or owners of security systems, within fcc, cell companies or hackers have caused radicalized foreigners, teens and people to flip. The hackers are targeting people by their interest online, companies or services, and caused anxiety and hostility. This is a coordinated effort by very evil people. Cant wait till they are caught.

      She's the best lesbian in America, 12:17 PM, and the smartest!

      Wait a minute. She is a fake? What makes her fake? She sounds like an educator, a smart woman, a compassion human. I think she is the real deal. Human unlike the ape in the tower of doom spitting fake news and rigging elections.

      Sorry 1:00, but Portia de Rossi is the best lesbian in America.

      You know what's great? Even though IM has refocused on the ever-evolving daily TRUMP disaster, this blog STILL features plenty of Palin stupidity. You betcha!

      With the demise of the SARAHPAC scam and its small army of postage-paid apologists, the banal and asinine comments seem to come directly from the bored and discarded source.

      Waving HEYYYYY grrrrrrrl Lou Sarah @ 12:17. Best run along now to make sure Track is locked in and them guns are all locked up - along with the liquor.

      Uh, I guarantee you 2:17, the post was not from 'Lou Sarah' no matter what your deluded mind thinks. But, still stuck on Palin 24-7 eh? That is amazing. What is it like in your crazy Palin obsessed world?

      And Maddow is an overpaid mouthpiece, but Gryph loves her so it is all good.

      Aw, aren't you a pathetic sorry little loser. What does Maddow's orientation or hair style have to do with anything?

      Surely you can't be stupid enough to think that either has anything to do with the truth or intelligence of anything she says.

      Oh, wait, obviously you can be.

      She certainly has a better background and education than any of the dribbling fools on fax. Or in the white house.

      Have you polled her ex-lovers to find out whether or not she is an expert,or is fake?

    8. Anonymous5:02 PM

      Uh, 2:31, the only way you can 'guarantee' 12:17 isn't Lou Sarah is because you're mopping up her morning Bailey's blowout and she's passed out on the couch. That would probably make you Piper or Bristol. No one else will deal with her. I guarantee it-eh?

      What's it like in that sad, pathetic world of yours? Be the first to write the book. The first tell-all might sell if you're willing to go into the RILL details. Otherwise, even Trig Truth won't get that big wig-headed washed up loser back on a FAKE best seller list.

    What would we do without the 'great' Rachel Maddow? Never miss her show - she is educating America against the asshole currently occupying the White House (although from the Trump Tower building in New York)!

    The Trumpster so needs to be impeached before he starts WWIII, takes our country down, erases the middle class, does nothing for the poor, fucks up our Affordable Care Act insurance coverage, does away w/Medicaid, alters Medicare and Social Seucrity and whatever else he gets his grimy, tiny hands on.

    I detest the blob of inhumanity! He is not a true American in any way, shape or form. He is Hitler II and an ugly American that has included many just like him in his cabinet!

    HA HA, somebody is getting a little nervous. Is he going to google every Democratic Senator/Rep and russia?

    Yes, let’s have an investigation which can tie in, compare and contrast with trump’s treason with the russians with Schumer and Pelosi.

    “Hereby demand” oh boy comrade donnie is pulling out the bigly lawyer speak!!!
    Trump tweets: I also want probe of Pelosi-Russia ties

    President Trump lashed out over Democratic calls for a probe into his contacts with Russia, calling for an investigation into House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) links to the Kremlin.

    “I hereby demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it,” Trump tweeted, with a link attached to a story about Pelosi’s 2010 group meeting with Russia’s U.S. ambassador. He tweeted the message three times, deleting the first two after misspelling the word "hereby" in each.

    Pelosi told Politico this week that she had never met the current Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislayak. But when presented with a photograph from a 2010 group meeting, her spokesman said that Pelosi had meant she had never had an individual meeting with the ambassador.

    Where is it written, there is not going to be a Muslim Ban? I am confused.

    This isn’t going to stop trump, in his speech when talking about radical Islamic terrorists/immigration, he mentioned San Bernardino, blah blah. The guy was American.

    If anything, he will use it say see even extreme vetting doesn’t work, so let’s stop them coming in all-together.

    She sure has. Real journalism. Rachael is great at explaining along with Lawrence O donnell. Both are excellent. And we also Thank you Gryphen for your important work also. You have worked hard for years providing important information and a place for debate and discussion. We the people are thankful and lucky to have a voice and place. It has made a difference.

    1. Couldn't agree with you more. Thankful for them and this blog.
      Long article and quite a puzzle but a must read.

      Trump and his ilk are Russian infused!

    Rachel is the only show to watch these days as she doesn't rehash the daily talking points but has new deep facts to connect the dots. Rolling Stone with Matt Taibbi is still a must read, but losing Michael Hastings still hurts. I can't help but thinking about Clinton thru all they used the stupidest things to hound her, there isn't one thing the GOP hasn't done exactly the same or worse.
    The worst now being the death of the Navy Seal and how that all came many millions did they spend on Benghazi?
    How much venom spewed about private servers? Risks to national security???? Seeing Trump having dinner at this club getting classified news...the football being a photo op with a member..WTF?

    I swear the Dems need a major strategy come mid terms...every person that signed that order to NOT see Trumps tax returns. The fact that he reversed the law banning poisons being released into public waterways, reversed the law preventing money brokers to cheat their clients and the best one (esp for Exxon) any monies given to foreign entities can remain secret. The leaks from the WH say he had no idea what he was signing. It's like you can't make this stuff up its so horrible.

    Fox News Posts INCREDIBLY Misleading Tweet Defending Sessions And People Are Not Having It.

    That’s right — conservatives are trying to say that since Democrats have talked to Russians before, there’s no wrongdoing here.

    Except that awkward part where none of the pictured Democrats lied under oath about it.

    Except that SUPER awkward part where Democrats weren’t part of a presidential campaign that benefited from, if not colluded with, Russian hacking and attempts to derail our 2016 electoral process.

    Users on Twitter are calling Fox “News” out for this incredibly misleading bullsh*t:

    I'll watch what you put up but I'm not going back to her show. Screw her for her hand in Trump, for promoting Bernie Sanders- AND Jane from Accounting- when in reality he had no hope in hell, for being rude to Hillary Clinton on account of DADT and for promoting Donald Trump 24/7.

    I'm sticking with Lawrence O'Donnell. He didn't find it hard to be impartial, Maddow found it impossible.

  13. That's why Trump wants to eliminate all foreign born from entering the country.

    Then he'll eliminate the foreign born already here.

    After he's done that, he'll eliminate those that are the children of foreign born that were born here.

    Basically, he will eliminate everyone that isn't white European. That would also include our Native Americans because in his opinion they're all losers, drunks, criminals and their skin isn't white enough. Or some other racist reason.

    There is basically no explaining Trump. He is so far beyond reasonable he is off the scale. He's a bigot. He's a racist. He's a misogynist. He's a xenophobe. He is mentally and emotionally crippled.

    He's 70. Hopefully he'll pass in his sleep very, very soon. I don't see how his body can take much more abuse.

    1. Anonymous2:20 PM

      I do believe he himself is the child of a foreign born mother.

    We now know the reason why Republicans tried to keep their Obamacare replacement bill a secret. The leaked bill would take away health care for millions of Americans and taxes health insurance.

    ...The goal of the Republican Obamacare replacement plan is to give people insurance that costs more but covers less.

    Americans who don’t purchase their insurance through the exchange, or are on Medicaid are still facing the prospect of spending more money for less insurance.

    Since Republicans will be offering a tax credit that doesn’t cover the cost of insurance, the uninsured rate in the United States is going to immediately skyrocket.

    House Republicans were trying to keep their plan a secret because it is a very bad deal for the American people.

    Unless you are an insurance company, there is nothing good about the GOP’s Obamacare replacement plan.

    I had a passing and hopeful thought today after watching the BFOF (BigFatOrangeFu*k) tell some poor child to get rich, but don't do politics. Ha Ha. (Still all about TRUMP)

    Anyway, his unhappiness over having to do actual work in the course of presidenting is as obvious as his man-spanxed panus. So do you think he might pull a Palin and find an excuse to just up and quit? Before he can be impeached? Or arrested as a traitor?

    This lump of quivering narcissistic rage is surely as stupid as Palin. Maybe even more so, at least in some ways.

    1. Anonymous3:18 PM

      As long as he can "hire" people to do the work that he takes credit for,he will.He will BS his way though everything until something major hits the fan that he can't blame on other people.

    Guess trump will be closing all Mexican consulates and embassy soon

    Mexico launches nationwide effort in US to help migrants

    By ADRIANA GOMEZ LICON - The Associated Press

    MIAMI (AP) Not only is the Mexican government not building a wall; it's spending $50 million to beef up its legal aid to migrants who fear deportation, a response to President Donald Trump's crackdown on illegal immigration.

    All 50 Mexican consulates in the U.S. on Friday launched legal assistance centers to form partnerships with nonprofit groups and tap lawyers to help those fearing Trump's policies.

    The real goal was to get the other brown migrants out, the ones from south of the border. And it is succeeding because all the attention has been focused on the other brown people, the ones from the Middle East. Bannon and Dump mafia are working on the Asians for the next round.
