Judge at Citizenship Ceremony: Don’t Like Trump? Leave

WASHINGTON (CBS DC) — A federal judge took the opportunity during a U.S. Citizenship ceremony in San Antonio, Texas to insert a politically charged rant. He told listeners, if you don’t like that Donald Trump has been elected president, you can leave for another country.

Judge John Primomo shared his thoughts with the room at the Institute of Texan Cultures Thursday night, via KHOU.

“I can assure you that whether you voted for him or you did not vote for him, if you are a citizen of the United States, he is your president,” Judge Primomo said. “He will be your president and if you do not like that, you need to go to another country.”

Primomo continued his rant to lament those holding anti-Trump protests with signs that read ‘Not My President’ as well as athletes kneeling during the national anthem.

“I detest that, because you can protest things that happen in this country; you have every right to,” Judge Primomo said. “You don’t do that by offending national symbols like the national anthem and the flag of the United States.”

Later, Primomo told KENS 5 that his words weren’t meant to be political, but more a rallying cry for unification. He went as far as to say he didn’t even vote for Trump.

    It is a good reminder. Whether your family has been in what is now the USA since before the American Revolution, or someone going through the USA citizenship process, you have some opportunity to leave and go to another country. That opportunity does not exist in some countries, like the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea).
    It doesn’t sound like Judge Primomo is positioning himself for a Federal Supreme Court seat.

    Time to leak this…

    Many years ago when I was writing software for the NSA and DIA there was a rumor that several DEA employees had been giving their drug addicted informants and suspects needles tainted with HIV and Hepatitis viruses.

    According to what was discovered, DEA agents had been stopping drug addicted informants and suspects who they knew were HIV positive and taking their drugs and needles and giving them to other drug addicted informants and suspects.

    Audio confirmation of Department of Justice employees joking about committing crimes came from the warrant less wiretapping after 9/11. After 9/11 the NSA was ordered to and began data collection on local, state and federal police agencies.

    Another leak…

    It was about two weeks after the Waco Texas siege, I was at a software conference and a group of our software “users” said they had heard that the Department of Justice had requested the use of incendiary rounds for Waco.

    There are times when the American public has a right to know, and other times not.
