Welcome to the ever intolerant politically world of Donald Dumpster:




A retired police chief from North Carolina shared some choice words on Facebook for the immigration officials who unlawfully detained him this weekend when he returned from Paris to JFK. Why? Because of his name.

Hassan Aden has been a U.S. citizen for 42 years. He selflessly served the American public for 30 years in law enforcement, ultimately as Chief of Police in Greenville, NC. He founded a successful consulting firm that deals with police and criminal justice reform. He works with U.S. Department of Justice and Federal Court officials regularly. And he attended countless White House meetings to consult on national police policy reforms.

The icing on the cake? He was in Paris for his mother’s 80th birthday. Sounds the alarms!

As he approached U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), CBP Officer Chow asked only, “Are you traveling alone? Let’s take a walk.”

From there, Aden was detained in a re-purposed storage facility-turned-interrogation room. When he notified the detaining officer that he was a retired police chief and a U.S. citizen, he was told that they “sent [his] information to another agency to de-conflict and clear [him], so that [he] could gain passage into the United States… [his] own country!”

Aden sat in this room and watched as at least 25 foreign nationals were brought in and quickly released after five minutes or so. Yet he continued to be held for another hour and a half. Aden even asked the detaining officers, “how long of a detention do you consider to be reasonable?” And Officer Chow responded – with a straight face – that he was not being detained. Even though he wasn’t free to leave. Welcome to logic in Trump’s America.

Aden was finally released from the detention center into a country that he no longer recognizes. And rightfully so. This entire episode is a gross abuse of law enforcement and the Fourth Amendment. Aden, a lifelong public servant who has worked tirelessly to keep American citizens safe has become a victim to a new wave of racism in America that Trump has normalized.

Read the whole beautifully-written but sad Facebook post below:

Details of my CBP Detention at JFK Int. Airport:

After spending a lovely weekend in Paris celebrating my mom’s 80th birthday, I happily boarded my flight to return to the United States-something I have done countless times for 42 years after becoming a U.S. citizen. I had an enjoyable flight to New York’s JFK International Airport. On all of my prior trips, I was greeted by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers with a warm smile and the usual, “Welcome home sir”. Not this time. I approached CBP Officer Chow who didn’t say anything when I handed him my passport and looked at me with a gruff expression and simply stated, “are you traveling alone?”, I knew this was a sign of trouble, I answered “yes”, he then said, “Let’s take a walk”.

I was taken to a back office which looked to be a re-purposed storage facility with three desks and signs stating, “Remain seated at all times” and “Use of telephones strictly prohibited” – my first sign that this was not a voluntary situation and, in fact, a detention. By this point I had informed CBP Officer Chow, the one that initially detained me, that I was a retired police chief and a career police officer AND a US citizen-he stated that he had no control over the circumstance and that it didn’t matter what my occupation was. He handed my passport off to another CBP officer who was working at one of the desks. The second CBP officer was indeed kind and appreciated the fact that I was a career police officer and tried to be helpful. He explained that my name was used as an alias by someone on some watch list. He stated that he sent my information to another agency to de-conflict and clear me, so that I could gain passage into the United States….my own country!!!

As I sat in the CBP detention center, numerous, at least 25, foreign nationals were also brought in and quickly released, their detentions were reasonable and appropriate, maybe 5 or so minutes while their passports were checked. I pointed out the irony of this fact to the CBP officer that was attempting to “clear me for entry”. I told him, as he avoided eye contact, how wrong this scenario was that the only US citizen, career US police officer and chief of police, out of the group of detainees, was the one with the longest unreasonable detention- I was held for an hour and a half. I asked several times, “how long of a detention do you consider to be reasonable?”, the answer I was given by CBP Officer Chow was that I was not being detained-he said that with a straight face. I then replied, “But I’m not free to leave-how is that not a detention?” I was in a room with no access to my mobile phone to communicate with my wife and family about what was happening, my movements were restricted to a chair and they had my passport………and he had the audacity to tell me I was not being detained. His ignorance of the law and the Fourth Amendment should disqualify him from being able to wear a CBP badge – but maybe fear and detention is the new mission of the CBP and the Constitution is a mere suggestion. I certainly was not free to leave. As former law enforcement, believe me, I agree that if certain criteria is met, a reasonable investigative detention is not inappropriate-the key here being “reasonable”.

As I continued to sit in the CBP makeshift Detention Center, watching numerous foreign nationals enter my country while I couldn’t, I began thinking about my numerous trips abroad -including five in the past year (all prior to inauguration) – with no problems upon my return and complete with the warm greeting of “Welcome home”.

Fortunately, a CBP officer that had just started her shift took interest in my situation and began to inquire with the “other agency” that was reviewing my information-she aggressively asked them for status updates and eventually called me over to tell me that I was cleared to enter the United States of America. I promptly thanked her and filled her in on how impactful this situation was-she apologized and I was on my way after an hour and a half detention.

I spent nearly 30 years serving the public in law enforcement. Since I retired as the Chief of Police in Greenville, NC, I founded a successful consulting firm that is involved in virtually every aspect of police and criminal justice reform. I interface with high level U.S. Department of Justice and Federal Court officials almost daily. Prior to this administration, I frequently attended meetings at the White House and advised on national police policy reforms-all that to say that If this can happen to me, it can happen to anyone with attributes that can be “profiled”. No one is safe from this type of unlawful government intrusion.

As I left the CBP makeshift detention center, I had to go back through security to catch my next flight back to DC, ironically, due to my weekly air travel, I have TSA Pre-check and was whisked through security without a hitch and made my flight by minutes.

This experience has left me feeling vulnerable and unsure of the future of a country that was once great and that I proudly called my own. This experience makes me question if this is indeed home. My freedoms were restricted, and I cannot be sure it won’t happen again, and that it won’t happen to my family, my children, the next time we travel abroad. This country now feels cold, unwelcoming, and in the beginning stages of a country that is isolating itself from the rest of the world – and its own people – in an unprecedented fashion. High levels of hate and injustice have been felt in vulnerable communities for decades-it is now hitting the rest of America.

I have contacted my US senators, and my contacts at the NYT and other media sources to continue to tell the story of what is happening in the United States of America.

The picking on Trump might jst get worst. Did folks watch some or all of the hearing today?? There is a criminal investigation into the Trump Tussia connections. Including of course the messy election interference. If ever there was time to stop defending trump blindly and to see the situation as objectively as possible. this is serious enough to forget party issues and just stick with the facts.

Trumps insane twtter activity continues and the trump fanatics will have to decide who to believe..........the facts. evidence or Trumps wild ramblings. & rants that are looking more crazy and out of touch with reality all the time.

this saga is far from done.......... and TRump is far from stopping his twists, spins and manipulations.Just because he talks like qa stupid person.......... does not make him anywhere near qualified for the role of President.He is not a straight shooter.........he is a con artist

MNow we watch how he does under the pressure he created for himself............by asking Russia for assistance. ( not his words..........but everyone should remember that comment and request)

Trump LIED about Obama having Trump towers under surveillance THAT is the FACT. anything that Trump says is just BS. Trump LOST so much credibility now.........he is in-self made trouble.

Meanwhile who is running the country??

What is rather curious is tha BOTH camps were under investigation.........BUT the only one made public was Hillary's. That is what came out to day at the hearing.today. So why was one kept quiet and the other made public ............. when making it public was bound to affect the election??? Coomie played a part in the way the election turned out by the way he handled the-info he had and what he exposed and what he with held.

but yes you're right about the investigation of Hillary.

AP Exclusive: Manafort had plan to benefit Putin government

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, secretly worked for a Russian billionaire to advance the interests of Russian President Vladimir Putin a decade ago and proposed an ambitious political strategy to undermine anti-Russian opposition across former Soviet republics, The Associated Press has learned. The work appears to contradict assertions by the Trump administration and Manafort himself that he never worked for Russian interests.

Manafort proposed in a confidential strategy plan as early as June 2005 that he would influence politics, business dealings and news coverage inside the United States, Europe and the former Soviet republics to benefit the Putin government, even as U.S.-Russia relations under Republican President George W. Bush grew worse.

Manafort pitched the plans to Russian aluminum magnate Oleg Deripaska, a close Putin ally with whom Manafort eventually signed a $10 million annual contract beginning in 2006, according to interviews with several people familiar with payments to Manafort and business records obtained by the AP. Manafort and Deripaska maintained a business relationship until at least 2009, according to one person familiar with the work.

"We are now of the belief that this model can greatly benefit the Putin Government if employed at the correct levels with the appropriate commitment to success," Manafort wrote in the 2005 memo to Deripaska. The effort, Manafort wrote, "will be offering a great service that can re-focus, both internally and externally, the policies of the Putin government."

Manafort's plans were laid out in documents obtained by the AP that included strategy memoranda and records showing international wire transfers for millions of dollars. How much work Manafort performed under the contract was unclear.

The disclosure comes as Trump campaign advisers are the subject of an FBI probe and two congressional investigations. Investigators are reviewing whether the Trump campaign and its associates coordinated with Moscow to meddle in the 2016 campaign. Manafort has dismissed the investigations as politically motivated and misguided. The documents obtained by AP show Manafort's ties to Russia were closer than previously revealed.

In a statement to the AP, Manafort confirmed that he worked for Deripaska in various countries but said the work was being unfairly cast as "inappropriate or nefarious" as part of a "smear campaign."

"I worked with Oleg Deripaska almost a decade ago representing him on business and personal matters in countries where he had investments," Manafort said. "My work for Mr. Deripaska did not involve representing Russia's political interests."

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., one of Trump's critics in the Senate, called the disclosures about payments to Manafort from the Russian billionaire "very disturbing if true."

"That's basically taking money to stop the spread of democracy, and that would be very disturbing to me," he said Wednesday on Capitol Hill.

Trump's Obamacare repeal hits setback as House delays vote

Republican House leaders delayed their planned vote Thursday on a long-promised bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, in a stinging setback for House Speaker Paul Ryan and U.S. President Donald Trump in their first major legislative test.

The decision came after Trump, who ran as a master deal-maker, failed to reach agreement with a bloc of rebellious conservatives. Moderate-leaning Republican lawmakers were also bailing on the legislation, leaving it short of votes.

House Republicans met behind closed doors Thursday night to consider their next steps, and emerged later saying they will vote Friday afternoon even though leadership is still trying to secure the votes.

Senior White House adviser Steve Bannon told reporters as he left the meeting that the administration wants a vote.

Budget director Mick Mulvaney told lawmakers, "Negotiations are over. We'd like to vote tomorrow and let's get this done for the American people."
