Life After Hate is a group with an interesting story. A description on their website says that the organization “was created in 2009 by former members of the American violent far-right extremist movement. Through powerful stories of transformation and unique insight gleaned from decades of experience, we serve to inspire, educate, guide, and counsel.”
Led by Christian Picciolini, they state their mission is “inspiring individuals to a place of compassion and forgiveness for everyone, including themselves.”
On the exterior, they certainly paint a rosy picture; reformed extremists, haters that are teaching themselves and others to love. It would be a welcome change if it were true.
OK, America. Time to put an end to this nonsense once and for all. The Nazis fooled us once and this time we BECAME the Nazis. #Revolt

This is the real Christian Picciolini, and it seems he is still harboring a lot of hate. Like many other liberals, he presents a façade that doesn’t hold up to close examination. They aren’t truly accepting of everyone, they only accept those that agree with them.
Enter Barack Obama, for the last 8 years he has led the charge of hypocrisy. He left office lamer than most, pardoning criminals left and right, and desperately trying to secure some sort of legacy.
Perhaps it was with that goal in mind that he arranged a special gift to Life After Hate.
The Department of Homeland Security cut the check which was given to Life After Hate. If that doesn’t give you pause, read the sentence again. But make no mistake; Obama’s hand directed all this.
The government then quietly delivered the $400,000 to Life After Hate. In a statement issued by Jeh Johnson they tried to explain; “The funding will go for activities that include intervention, developing resilience, challenging the narrative, and building capacity.
In the body of the statement, Life After Hate is listed under the “Managing Interventions” category along with a mayor’s office, a police department, and several other groups. There is no explanation beyond that.
Given the violence of the left since November, the irony of Johnson’s statement that, “In this age of self-radicalization and terrorist-inspired acts of violence, domestic-based efforts to counter violent extremism have become a homeland security imperative,” is not lost. Liberals have become the leaders of self-radicalization and a lot of this money went to supporting those efforts.
In the statement, Johnson actually singles out Life After Hate as “an organization devoted to the rehabilitation of former neo-Nazis and other domestic extremists in this country.”
Johnson and Obama must have been quite happy to give this much money to such an organization. Picciolini devotes a lot of time on his Twitter account to bashing anyone that doesn’t believe that all whites are as racist as he used to be.
I understand your “movement” more than most. We also called it a mvmnt 25 yrs ago except we waved swastikas & didn’t hide behind patriotism. https://t.co/X88CeN8nhi

He is dedicated to proving that all whites are Nazis, President Trump included of course. He doesn’t want to admit that some people are capable of disagreements without racism even being an issue.
Life After Hate has several programs they run, all supposedly dedicated to peace.
ExitUSA – “helping individuals who wish to disengage from the white power movement and build a more positive life. Founded and run by former hate group members who have led successful lives post-movement, ExitUSA provides support to individuals who are looking to leave racism and violence behind.”
The Against Violent Extremism (AVE) Network– “is a unique and powerful global force in the ongoing struggle to tackle violent extremism. Former violent extremists and survivors are empowered to work together to push back extremist narratives and prevent the recruitment of ‘at risk’ youths. It leverages the lessons, experiences and networks of individuals who have dealt first-hand with extremism.”
Formers Anonymous– “is a group of men and women who have identified a shared problem of attachment and addiction to a grossly irresponsible, criminal and/or drug (including alcohol) lifestyle.”
They also run Strong Cities Network and Harmony Through Hockey.
Their website offers books to buy, written by many of their founders and of course a place for donations to their non-profit organization.
Surprisingly, they don’t mention the large and generous grant from the Department of Homeland Security. It would seem like they would want to advertise that they are so highly supported. Perhaps that is something better left unsaid if the check was not for their charity but a payment to support their anti-Trump movements.

President Trump keeps sending out a clear message. Immigration to America is a privilege, not a right. If you want to come and stay, you must contribute.
President Trump’s administration will be looking to roll out more restrictions on immigrants planning to enter the U.S., as well as those already in the country. The administration would be seeking to “deny admission to any alien who is likely to become a public charge” and develop standards for “determining” whether an immigrant can be deported after five years, if that person receives a certain amount of public assistance, including Food Stamps, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), and Medicaid.
The second order, titled “Executive Order on Protecting American Jobs and Workers by Strengthening the Integrity of Foreign Worker Visa Programs” calls for eliminating the jobs magnet that is driving illegal immigration to the United States. The order would rescind any work visa provisions for foreign nationals found not to be in “the national interest” or in violation of U.S. immigration laws.
Illegal Immigrants living in sanctuary cities can apply for and get, public assistance without fear of deportation. Their illegal status is kept confidential. They come and go at will.
The term “sanctuary city” is a generalized description where city funds are not used to implement federal immigration laws. These cities have decided by legal regulation not to inquire about the immigration status of the people in which they come in contact. In other words, it’s another form of “don’t ask, don’t tell.” Sanctuary cities continue to be a festering public-safety concern throughout the country. ICE has identified about 300 cities that are uncooperative and obstruct immigration enforcement. There are four whole states, California, Connecticut, New Mexico, and Colorado that have declared as sanctuary states.
A detainer is the primary tool used by ICE to gain custody of illegals for deportation. It’s a notice to other law enforcement agencies that ICE intends to take custody of the alien. It also includes information on the alien’s criminal history, immigration violations and potential threat to public safety. While many Americans, even veterans, struggle with getting adequate medical care, not so with the illegals. Medical care provided to illegal immigrants is costly for New York City’s legal residents. A 2002 report by the United States General Accounting Office, in-patient care in hospitals provided to illegal immigrants cost the state $474 million.
However, this figure fails to include the out-patient costs associated with treating the illegal immigrant population in emergency rooms. When these figures are included, the overall taxpayer-funded, non-reimbursed medical outlays for health care provided to the state’s illegal immigrant population amount to an estimated $690 million a year.
Almost half the households headed by an illegal immigrant are receiving welfare, food assistance and health benefits for their children. In total, the illegal immigrant population residing in New York costs the state’s taxpayers more than $5 billion per year for education, medical care and incarceration costs. On a per person basis, the annual tax burden amounts to about $874 per New York household headed by a native-born resident. That’s just for New York! Sanctuary city status has really paid off for them. Multiply New York’s cost of public assistance for illegals by 300, the number of sanctuary cities, and a clearer picture is shown. We can’t continue this way.
This flies in the face of globalism and open borders. Just look how that’s worked out for Europe. Angela Merkel and European Union leaders are reeling from the defeats they’re facing from their open borders policies. Their globalist agenda is being challenged by the voters in their respective countries. The United Nations won’t give up on it and plans to push for the New World Order.
Brexit is an abbreviation for “British exit,” which refers to the June 23, 2016, referendum whereby British citizens voted to exit the European Union. With an austerity program in place and its economy barely out of recession, Britain is one of several European countries whose voters appear disenchanted with mainstream politicians and worried about social and economic issues, including immigration. The proposed changes would make it easier to deport foreigners who commit serious crimes, increase fines on companies that use illegal labor and force private landlords to check the immigration status of their tenants. Temporary immigrants would also be required to pay for some of their health care.
On immigration, the government said its new measures would seek to stop immigrants from using public services to which they are not entitled, make it harder to appeal deportation orders, regulate access to health care for immigrants, and prevent illegal immigrants from obtaining driver’s licenses.
The conditions that exist today in Germany are like what they were in the 1920’s in respect to immigration. Now as then, it could lead to extreme elements coming forth to apply their version of nationalism. We’ve learned through history that’s a dangerous place for Germany to be. It’s a dangerous place for our country to be.
Germany has been under siege from a flood of refugees from Syria. The backlash from the far-right has been intense. Copies of Mein Kampf have been flying off the shelves.
“Besides naturalization that is acquired through the fact of having been born within the confines of a State there exists another kind of naturalization which can be acquired later. This process is subject to various preliminary requirements. “One condition is that, if possible, the applicant must not be a burglar or a common street thug. It is required that he shall not be a burden to the State of which he wishes to become a citizen. In this realistic epoch of ours this last condition naturally only means that he must not be a financial burden. If the affairs of the candidate are such that it appears likely he will turn out to be a good taxpayer, that is a very important consideration and will help him to obtain civic rights more rapidly.” —- Adolf Hitler
Extremism leads to extremism. We have some challenging times ahead as we take back control of our country. Thankfully, we have the strong leadership of Donald Trump to get us there. We’re going to need it.
