The young girls who were literally dropped on the American side of the U.S.-Mexico border and abandoned by smugglers earlier this week are sisters from Ecuador who are “doing fine” and are “so resilient,” El Paso Border Patrol Sector Chief Gloria Chavez told “Your World” Thursday.
“I was really horrified and appalled and worried when I first saw the images come through from my staff,” Chavez told host Neil Cavuto. “When I saw that first child dropped to the ground and then not see her move for a few seconds, I honestly thought this child just probably hit her head and is unconscious. And then I see the second child and immediately DHS, obviously, within a few minutes responded to that area to rescue them.”
On Wednesday, Chavez released video showing what she said were two smugglers scaling a 14-foot fence and dropping each child on to the ground, along with what appeared to be some belongings, before retreating back onto the Mexican side of the fence. Chavez said the girls — ages five and two — were left “in the middle of the New Mexico desert … miles from the nearest residence” and were only picked up thanks to the “vigilance of our agents using mobile [surveillance] technology.”
“When I visited with these little girls, they were so loving and so talkative, some of them were asking the names of all the agents that were there around them, and they even said they were a little hungry,” Chavez recalled. “So I helped them peel a banana and open a juice box and just talked to them. You know, children are just so resilient and I’m so grateful that they’re not severely injured or [have] broken limbs or anything like that.”
Chavez added that authorities had not previously seen “ruthless” smugglers drop off unaccompanied child migrants in remote areas outside of El Paso.
“I’ve been doing this for over twenty-five years now and we know exactly the tactics of these people,” she said. “For them, it’s just a profit … So when we see an image like that , that raises my alert and my worry that they may continue to try these tactics further out in the desert area like [near] Lordsburg, New Mexico [or] Fort Hancock, Texas, where it’s not urban, it’s very remote, it’s very rural and the logistics and the challenges that exist for Border Patrol agents to get to those locations are quite high.
“So I worry when I see images like this and the tactics that smugglers are using [are] really hurting these children.”
Chavez went on to explain to Cavuto that the girls didn’t make it to the border “just by walking or taking a ride.”
“This is a coordinated effort all the way up to our border, right up to the smugglers operating in that area and then paying — either the families pay a fee or relatives pay a fee,” she said.
“If you saw in that video, there is a third item that is thrown over that barrier, and that was a bag,” said Chavez. “In that bag, there was a phone, there was a phone number and their passports. And we were able through the intelligence and the agents working this case already, they were able to make contact with the mother who resides in New York. So that connection has been made, and we continue with the investigation because … we want to get these guys so that they don’t do this to another unaccompanied minor on that border.”
Thank God those little girls are alright.
But, what about the other children who are being sent with unscrupulous evil men and women to the “Promised Land” of “El Norte”?
Why aren’t President Joe Biden and his, evidently, “Co-President”, Kamala Harris working to end this unbridled illegal mass entry into our Sovereign Nation?
Simple…this is exactly what the Biden-Harris Administration, their Handlers, and the Democrat Elite want.
They want the same thing to happen to America that happened to the countries in Europe who have been invaded by Muslim Migrants.
They want our national identity to change.
Think about it.
How did Lenin become the leader of the Russian Revolution?
He used the Mensheviks and the Bolsheviks to overthrow the Russian Monarchy.
In the same manner, the Democrats are going to use illegal immigrants to change the way our Constitutional Voting Process works in order to “stay in power forever.
The Democrat Elite, including the current Administration, do not care about these people who they are allowing to invade our country.
If they were humanitarians, there would not be a wall around Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco Mansion…or the White House.
Here’s a not-so-secret secret::The Democrat Elite only care about political power and their own personal wealth.
Even if it means putting innocent children’s’ lives in danger to achieve their goals.

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said that while he won’t tear down President Trump’s much-touted wall along the United States’ southern border with Mexico, he also won’t continue construction of the barrier if he’s elected president in November.
“There will not be another foot of wall construction in my administration,” Biden said during an interview, according to the Dallas Morning News. “I’m going to make sure that we have border protection, but it’s going to be based on making sure that we use high-tech capacity to deal with it. And at the ports of entry — that’s where all the bad stuff is happening.”
The border wall was one of Trump’s signature proposals during his 2016 presidential campaign and has been a flashpoint of conflict between his administration and Democrats since he assumed office. To date, only 277 miles of the wall have been completed, but Trump on Tuesday promised that “it will be almost finished by the end of the year.”
The entire length of the U.S.’s border with Mexico in 1,974 miles.
Along with halting construction of the wall, Biden vowed that, if elected, he would also end land confiscations along the border that had been taken to build the wall.
“End. Stop. Done. Over. Not going to do it. Withdraw the lawsuits. We’re out. We’re not going to confiscate the land,” Biden said.
Biden’s position on border barriers has changed over time.
A video recently surfaced from 2006 of then-Sen. Biden of Delaware advocating for fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Folks, I voted for a fence, I voted, and unlike most Democrats — and some of you won’t like it — I voted for 700 miles of fence,” he said, in the video unearthed by CNN.
Biden added: “But, let me tell you, we can build a fence 40 stories high — unless you change the dynamic in Mexico and — and you will not like this, and — punish American employers who knowingly violate the law when, in fact, they hire illegals. Unless you do those two things, all the rest is window dressing.”
A spokesperson for Biden’s campaign said that the former vice president’s position hasn’t changed but that a border wall wouldn’t “address the real issues.”
“As then-Senator Biden said at the time, ‘we can build a fence 40 stories high,’ but it will not address the real issues here. Vice President Biden believes we have to stop trying to scare people and instead have an immigration discussion based on facts,” spokesman Andrew Bates said.
“He believes that we can secure our borders without abandoning our values, and that we should do that by addressing the root causes of immigration abroad and working toward comprehensive immigration reform at home, including a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants and smart border security.
So, Sleepy Joe wants to address the root causes of immigration abroad?
And, do what? Send them OUR money?
He must have been asleep during the “Attack of the Caravans” from the Golden Triangle in Latin America.
There were representatives of wealthy Americans like George Soros giving people “traveling money” to come and overwhelm our Southern Border.
Who stopped that in its tracks?
The 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump, did.
It slays me when I see and hear Biden say that he is going to fix all of America’s problems like immigration.
He has been in Washington for over 30 years and he has accomplished NOTHING at all.And, now, in his “diminished” state he does not know where he is half the time and when he is confronted with a question he can’t answer, he becomes agitated and strikes out verbally, like he did a couple of days ago.
If you believe that Hidin’ Joe Biden, who is clearly battling dementia, can successfully tackle the ob of being the most powerful leader in the Free World, then I have a free membership in the Rosie O’Donnell Diet Plan to send you.
If they didn’t, wealthy Democrat Politicians like Biden and Pelosi would not live behind them.
If they actually want to be an American and contribute to our country, we will welcome them with open arms.
If they want to sneak in, take advantage of our kindness and largess, and remain loyal to their home country, they can stay in the country which they prefer before our.
And, they can take the Liberals who hate our country and who are attempting to destroy it with them.

“[W]hile the Constitution bestows upon Members of the House many powers, it does not grant them standing to haul the Executive Branch into court claiming a dilution of Congress’s legislative authority. ” – Judge Trevor McFadden
FoxNews.com reports that
Washington, D.C., district court Judge Trevor McFadden threw out House Democrats’ lawsuit seeking an injunction against President Trump’s emergency border wall funding reallocation, saying that the matter is fundamentally a political dispute and that the politicians lack standing to make a legal case.
Trump had declared a national emergency this past February over the humanitarian crisis at the southern border, following Congress’ failure to fund his border wall legislatively. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and House Democrats then filed suit in April, charging that Trump was “stealing from appropriated funds” by moving $6.7 billion from other projects toward border wall construction.
Democrats argued that the White House had “flouted the fundamental separation-of-powers principles and usurped for itself legislative power specifically vested by the Constitution in Congress.”
But, in his ruling, McFadden, a Trump appointee, suggested Democrats were trying to circumvent the political process.
“This case presents a close question about the appropriate role of the Judiciary in resolving disputes between the other two branches of the Federal Government. To be clear, the court does not imply that Congress may never sue the Executive to protect its powers,” McFadden wrote in his opinion. “The Court declines to take sides in this fight between the House and the President.”
McFadden’s ruling contrasted with U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam’s injunction last week, which blocked the administration from using the reallocated funds for projects in specific areas in Texas and Arizona. Gilliam had been appointed by then-President Barack Obama.
McFadden began by focusing on two guiding Supreme Court cases he called “lodestars”– the 2015 case Arizona State Legislature v. Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission, and the 1997 case Raines v. Byrd.
“Read together, Raines and Arizona State Legislature create a spectrum of sorts,” McFadden wrote. “On one end, individual legislators lack standing to allege a generalized harm to Congress’s Article I power. On the other end, both chambers of a state legislature do have standing to challenge a nullification of their legislative authority brought about through a referendum.”
But, McFadden quickly distinguished the Arizona State Legislature case, which found institutional standing for legislators only in a limited instance. The Arizona case, the judge noted, “does not touch or concern the question whether Congress has standing to bring a suit against the President,” and the Supreme Court has found there was “no federal analogue to Arizona’s initiative power.”
Democrats’ dispute was more similar to the one in the Raines case, McFadden wrote. Under the framework and factors considered in Raines — including how similar matters have been handled historically, and the availability of other remedies besides litigation — McFadden ruled that House Democrats lacked standing.
Concerning past historical practice, the Trump administration argued in its brief that when Congress was concerned about “unauthorized Executive Branch spending in the aftermath of World War I, it responded not by threatening litigation, but by creating the General Accounting Office.” The judge cited that argument approvingly in his opinion, calling it “persuasive.”
Examples of hotly debated political questions being resolved without involving the courts, McFadden continued, “abound” throughout history.
For example, McFadden wrote, in 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt “fired an official from his Senate-confirmed position at the Federal Trade Commission. …The President removed the official without providing a reason. … The Senate likely had a ‘strong claim of diminution of’ its Advice and Consent power. … Yet the Senate made no effort to challenge this action in court.”
Additionally, McFadden said Democrats retained constitutional legislative options with which to remedy their objections about the president’s purported misuse of the Appropriations Clause. Under Supreme Court precedent in the Raines case, McFadden asserted, the existence of those additional options suggested Democrats lacked standing.
McFadden noted in particular that Democrats retained the power to modify or even repeal the appropriations law if they wanted to “exempt future appropriations” from the Trump administration’s reach.
Because the White House had not “nullified” that legislative power, McFadden wrote, there was no urgent need for judicial intervention sufficient to override the considerations of the political question doctrine, which holds that courts generally stay out of politically sensitive matters best left to voters.
“Congress has several political arrows in its quiver to counter perceived threats to its sphere of power,” McFadden wrote. “These tools show that this lawsuit is not a last resort for the House. And this fact is also exemplified by the many other cases across the country challenging the administration’s planned construction of the border wall.”
McFadden continued: “The House retains the institutional tools necessary to remedy any harm caused to this power by the Administration’s actions. Its Members can, with a two-thirds majority, override the President’s veto of the resolution voiding the National Emergency Declaration. They did not. It can amend appropriations laws to expressly restrict the transfer or spending of funds for a border wall under Sections 284 and 2808. Indeed, it appears to be doing so.”
The judge added that House Democrats had the burden of demonstrating that they had standing — a difficult hurdle for any plaintiff to clear, which involves showing a particularized injury that the court can address.
To that end, McFadden quoted former Chief Justice John Marshall’s opinion in the seminal 1803 case Marbury v. Madison, in which Marshall wrote, the “province of the [C[ourt is, solely, to decide on the rights of individuals, not to enquire how the executive, or executive officers, perform duties in which they have a discretion.”
McFadden also wrote, quoting from another Supreme Court case, “Intervening in a contest between the House and President over the border wall would entangle the Court ‘in a power contest nearly at the height of its political tension’ and would ‘risk damaging the public confidence that is vital to the functioning of the Judicial Branch.'”
How very refreshing to witness a judge with common sense stick it to the Democrats for a change.
Usually, it is one of the Activist Judges appointed by Clinton or Obama ruling against Trump as he attempts to keep the Campaign Promises which he made to the American people.
The use of the Judiciary by the Democratic Party to attempt to overturn the will of the American people is nothing new.
Years ago, several states held referendums concerning the allowance of gay marriage in their states. Average Americans in the overwhelming majority of those states voting against allowing gay marriage. The democrats filed injunctions against the implementation of the voters’ wishes leading to a ruling in favor of gay marriage by a narrow majority of Supreme Court Justices.
The Democrat Hierarchy have come to rely on Liberal Activist Judges to overturn the will of the American people.
Democrats, in their arrogance, believe that they know what is best for average Americans between the coasts, whom they feel morally and intellectual superior to.
In reality, neither is the case.
Theirs is the political ideology of special interest groups, not of the majority of average Americans.
Therefore, Washington Democrats believe that it is their obligation to “save us from ourselves” by using the judiciary to overturn the decisions of President Donald J. Trump, the President whom average Americans elected.
The Democrats did not get their way in this case because the presiding judge saw the situation for what it was: another attempt by the Democrats “to circumvent the political process”.
The Democrats, even though they will not admit it, know that their Far Left beliefs are not those of the majority of Americans.
That is why they are so adamant about leaving our borders wide open and why this ruling was so important.
A continuing influx of socialists from Central America would provide them with the new voters whom they so desperately need in order to regain the White House and with it, control of the future of our Sovereign Nation.
That is why we need the fence along our Southern Border to be completed.
America’s future is at stake.

The following three rulings have been handed down since Wednesday…
A federal judge in New York on Wednesday ruled that Deutsche Bank and Capital One may provide President Trump’s financial records to House Democratic lawmakers after the administration attempted to block the move.
U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos, an Obama appointee, made the ruling in a New York courthouse Wednesday afternoon after hearing arguments from both parties in the case.
A federal judge on Friday temporarily blocked Mississippi from moving ahead with a so-called “heartbeat” abortion law that bans the procedure after a cardiac activity is first detected, which occurs at around six weeks of pregnancy.
The ruling by U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves stops the order from taking effect July 1.
“Here we go again,” Reeves wrote. “Mississippi has passed another law banning abortions prior to viability.”
Reeves also struck down a 2018 Mississippi law that banned abortion at 15 weeks. The state is appealing that ruling.
A federal judge on Friday temporarily blocked the Trump administration’s plan to spend billions to construct a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border with Defense Department funds.
U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam’s ruling applies to wall construction in specific areas in El Paso, Texas and Yuma, Arizona. Trump declared a national emergency in February to redirect funding from the Department of Defense to begin construction of his long-promised border wall.
“In short, the position that when Congress declines the Executive’s request to appropriate funds, the Executive nonetheless may simply find a way to spend those funds “without Congress” does not square with fundamental separation of powers principles dating back to the earliest days of our Republic,” wrote Gilliam, who was appointed to the bench by former President Barack Obama.
All three of these federal judges have something in common: they were all three appointed to the bench by Former President Barack Hussein Obama.
For years now, Democrat Politicians and the Liberal Special Interest Groups who donate to their campaigns have used America’s Legal System to overthrow the will of the majority of Americans.
In fact, they have made an art form out of it.
However, the focus of these rulings made by Obama appointees is not about allowing two hairy-legged gents to roll around under the sheets together and label it a “marriage” in the name of “love”.
Rather, these activist judges, just as was done when Trump announced his “Travel Ban” designed to stem the flow of Radical Islamists into our Sovereign Nation, seek to “neuter” President Trump and render him and Conservative Governors, like Mississippi’s Phil Bryant powerless to accomplish the wishes of those who put them in political office.
According to Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, in the following Federalist Paper, Americans have nothing to fear from the Judiciary when they act alone. It’s when they act in concert with others, such as Liberal Politicians in Congress, that Americans need to be afraid.
From The Federalist #78
Whoever attentively considers the different departments of power must perceive, that, in a government in which they are separated from each other, the judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution; because it will be least in a capacity to annoy or injure them. The Executive not only dispenses the honors, but holds the sword of the community. The legislature not only commands the purse, but prescribes the rules by which the duties and rights of every citizen are to be regulated. The judiciary, on the contrary, has no influence over either the sword or the purse; no direction either of the strength or of the wealth of the society; and can take no active resolution whatever. It may truly be said to have neither FORCE nor WILL, but merely judgment; and must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm even for the efficacy of its judgments.
This simple view of the matter suggests several important consequences. It proves incontestably, that the judiciary is beyond comparison the weakest of the three departments of power1; that it can never attack with success either of the other two; and that all possible care is requisite to enable it to defend itself against their attacks. It equally proves, that though individual oppression may now and then proceed from the courts of justice, the general liberty of the people can never be endangered from that quarter; I mean so long as the judiciary remains truly distinct from both the legislature and the Executive. For I agree, that “there is no liberty, if the power of judging be not separated from the legislative and executive powers.”2 And it proves, in the last place, that as liberty can have nothing to fear from the judiciary alone, but would have every thing to fear from its union with either of the other departments; that as all the effects of such a union must ensue from a dependence of the former on the latter, notwithstanding a nominal and apparent separation; that as, from the natural feebleness of the judiciary, it is in continual jeopardy of being overpowered, awed, or influenced by its co-ordinate branches; and that as nothing can contribute so much to its firmness and independence as permanency in office, this quality may therefore be justly regarded as an indispensable ingredient in its constitution, and, in a great measure, as the citadel of the public justice and the public security.
Do you think that Hamilton foresaw the rise of Activist Judges, whose sole purpose, working in concert with an out-of-power Political Party, would be to sabotage a president and State Governors trying to legislate according to the wishes of the majority of American Citizens?
The great American Economist and Conservative Pundit (who just happens to be Black) Dr. Thomas Sowell, wrote the following in a paper on the subject of Judicial Activism:
The claim that judicial activism is necessary to rescue us from bondage to the past– from having the writers of the Constitution “rule us from the grave”– defies both logic and history. There is no contest between the living and the dead. The contest is between those living individuals who wish to see control of change in judicial hands and those who wish to see it in other hands. There has been no argument that either statutory or constitutional laws are not to change. The only meaningful question is: Who is to change them? The reiterated emphasis on change, like the reiterated emphasis on morality, argues what is not at issue and glides over what is crucially at issue: Why are judges the authorized instrument? The original cognitive meaning of laws– constitutional or statutory– is important, not out of deference to the dead, but because that is the agreed‑upon meaning among the living, until they choose to make an open and explicit change– not have one foisted on them by the verbal sleight-of‑hand of judges.
Existing social philosophies and political alignments cannot be presupposed in discussions of long-run questions, such as constitutional interpretation. Even within the judiciary, differences in “substantive values” have been drastic over time, and by no means negligible even at a given time. The belief that a constitutional structure can be maintained while jurists with radically different visions make “substantive choices” within it seems dangerously similar to a belief that one can slide half-way down a slippery slope. The argument for judicial activism must stand or fall in general and enduring terms, not simply on whether some current political or social creed is considered so superior to competing creeds as to justify judges’ decisions in its favor. It is ultimately not a question of the relative merits of particular political or social creeds but of the long-run consequences of opening the floodgates to the generic principle of constitutional decisions based on “substantive values.” Once you have opened the floodgates, you cannot tell the water where to go.
What must be rejected is precisely the general principle that judges’ “substantive values” should govern constitutional decisions. Nor is anything fundamentally changed by saying that judges are only agents of general moral ideas, rather than their own personal inclinations.
From the beginning of Trump’s presidency, the Democrats and their Special Interest Groups have attempted to thwart his plans to fulfill his Campaign Promises by seeking out sympathetic Liberal Activist Judges who would rule in their favor.
The Founding Fathers never meant for Americans to be ruled by the Judiciary.
That is why they created three distinct Branches of Government with their own fields of authority.
The Judicial and Legislative Branches were not created to steer the Ship of State.
The Executive Branch is responsible for the leadership of our Sovereign Nation.
Elections have consequences.
The Democrats keep on showing the American People exactly who they really are: a bunch of sore losers embracing relative morality and situational ethics.
And, it needs to end.

FoxNews.com reports that
Senate Republicans joined their Democratic colleagues on Thursday in voting to block President Trump’s border emergency declaration — a move that will prompt the president’s first-ever veto.
The president made his intentions crystal clear, tweeting “VETO!” moments after the resolution cleared Congress. The White House said Trump likely would issue the veto Friday.
The measure passed 59-41 as a dozen Republicans joined Democrats in voting for the resolution, despite White House efforts to keep the GOP united on the issue of border security. Those GOP members who backed the resolution cited concerns about the expansion of presidential powers.
“I’m going to be voting in favor of the resolution of disapproval,” Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, told reporters ahead of the vote. “This is a constitutional question, it’s a question of the balance of power that is core to our constitution.”
“This is not about the president or border security, in fact I support border security, I support a barrier,” he said.
The other Republicans who voted to oppose the declaration were Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah; Rob Portman, R-Ohio; Susan Collins, R-Maine; Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska; Marco Rubio, R-Fla.; Rand Paul, R-Ky.; Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.; Roger Wicker, R-Miss.; Roy Blunt, R-Mo.; Jerry Moran, R-Kan.; and Pat Toomey, R-Pa.
Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., had said he would oppose the declaration but reversed course on the Senate floor, saying that he was “sympathetic” to Trump’s push to deal with the crisis at the border.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., before the vote, said he “takes his hat off” to Republicans voting with Democrats, while accusing Trump of “going around Congress” with the declaration.
“This is a momentous day,” he said, declaring that the balance of power was shifting back toward Congress.
The measure heads next to Trump’s desk, having previously passed the House. However, Trump plans to veto, and it’s unlikely the House and Senate could muster the required two-thirds majority to override.
Trump originally issued the emergency declaration last month after Congress granted only a fraction of the $5.7 billion he requested for a wall on the southern border. Declaring a national emergency allows Trump to steer an extra $3.6 billion to the wall.
I have been posting my thoughts and opinions everyday since April of 2018.
Somewhere along the way, I coined the term “Vichy Republicans” to describe those professional politicians up on Capitol Hill who acted more like squishy left-leaning members of the opposite party than Rock-ribbed Republicans.
Instead, they were and apparently remain “go along to get along” milksops, whose closest thing to a spine which they could ever claim was found on the side of their college textbooks.
Now, just as they did throughout the nightmarish years of the Obama Administration, these Vichy Republicans have proven that they are clueless as to the wishes of the average American Voters who gave them their cushy government jobs.
Their fear as to what the next Democrat President might do in regards to issuing their own “Emergency Declarations” (assuming that the Dems ever have another Presidential Candidate elected), has apparently overwhelmed their concern for the safety of their fellow Americans and their compassion for the “Angel Moms” and other family members of those already murdered by illegal aliens who should not have been in our country to begin with.
The cluelessness of these Vichy Republicans also extends to a lack of understanding as to why none of their hand-picked 2016 Presidential Candidates became the 45th President of the United States of America and American Businessman and Citizen Statesman Donald J. Trump was elected.
The simple reason for Trump’s election was average Americans’ anger as the Washingtonian Status Quo…the same status quo that was on display in the Senate, yesterday.
Americans voted for Trump because they wanted someone in the Oval Office who cared more about us than the opinion of their fellow politicians representing the Democratic Party. A party which, while holding the office of the presidency, attempted to flush America down the porcelain receptacle and replace our Constitutional Republic with a form of Marxism they euphemistically call “Democratic Socialism”.
Evidently, those 12 Republicans who voted with their Democratic Brethren yesterday, miss the days of the Washingtonian Status Quo.
President Trump, with the stroke of a pen, is about to remind them of the efficacy of his Presidential Powers.
He is trying to make America great again.
The Vichy Republicans in the Senate can either help him AND US AVERAGE AMERICANS in that effort or simply resign, like others of their ilk already have, and go home.
America has already experienced one Benedict Arnold.
We do not need any more.

Did you ever think that you would live to see the day when those who were sent to our nation’s capitol to serve us cared more about those who wish to enter our country illegally than they do about American citizens?
FoxNews.com reports that
The Pentagon will deploy 1,000 more troops to the southern border next week, a senior U.S. defense official said Friday afternoon.
The additional forces will bring the total to nearly 6,000 active-duty and National Guard personnel deployed in support of the Department of Homeland Security at the border with Mexico, one week after President Trump declared a state of emergency to free up funding for a promised border wall.
…Trump wants to spend roughly $6 billion from the Pentagon budget, $2.5 billion from its drug interdiction program and $3.5 billion from the military construction bill, to pay for the wall.
For years, it has been the practice to request approval from Congress before reallocating Defense Department funds, the senior defense official said, but also told reporters a congressional sign-off is “not required.”
More than 5,000 U.S. active-duty forces were ordered to the southern border in late October ahead of the midterm elections, and as a caravan of thousands of migrants traveled up toward the U.S. from Central America.
Since then, the mission has been extended two times. Earlier this year, Acting Defense Secretary Pat Shanahan said U.S. forces would remain on the border through the end of September, due to the painstaking work of laying more than 100 miles of barbed wire, and offering aviation, surveillance and other support.
So far, U.S. troops have strung roughly 70 miles of concertina wire, said the official.
“We’re laying down another 140 miles of concertina wire, about 30 percent done with that,” the official added.
Meanwhile…NBC News reports…
House Democrats pushed ahead Friday with a measure that seeks to terminate President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration that he issued last week in order to circumvent Congress and build his wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, introduced a joint resolution in the House that would repeal the president’s declaration. The measure was filed during the chamber’s pro forma session, a senior Democratic aide confirmed Friday morning, since lawmakers are on recess and don’t return to Washington until Monday.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said the chamber would vote on the resolution Tuesday.
The measure has at least 222 co-sponsors, Castro said Thursday evening — representing more than enough votes to pass the House.
…If both the House and Senate were to pass the resolution, it would send a major symbolic message — but its impact would be limited to symbolism: administration aides have already made clear Trump would veto any effort that interfered with his declaration, and the measure is unlikely to attract anywhere near the GOP support needed to overturn a presidential veto.
So Democrats are pushing back on other fronts, looking to nullify the declaration by challenging it in court, with California, New York and 14 other states filing a lawsuit on Monday to try to block the move.
So, Castro’s measure has all the impact of breaking wind in a cheese factory.
This measure is simply an extenuation of the National Temper Tantrum by Democrats that began the night of November 8, 2016 when their “sure thing”, the presidency of Hillary Clinton was thwarted by “a basket full of Deplorables” who lived between the Northeastern “Beltway” and the Left Coast.
The thing is, this is not just a temper tantrum…this is a power grab, which started covertly with a small group of bureaucrats in the DOJ and FBI under the auspices of the Obama Administration and has now extended to our nation’s version of England’s House of Commons, the House of Representatives.
Don’t believe me?
(Speaker of the House Nancy) Pelosi and a delegation of U.S. lawmakers were in Brussels on Monday and Tuesday to reassure European partners at a time when transatlantic relations have been deeply fractured by Trump’s criticism of allies and his unpredictability in policymaking.
Among the messages that Pelosi said she brought to the EU capital was that the U.S. president is not all-powerful. Of course, it was a lesson Europeans watched her teach Trump in the standoff over a recent government shutdown — where she forced the president to back down.
“We’re not a parliamentary government even though we’re parliamentarians,” Pelosi said at a news conference. “We have Article 1, the legislative branch, the first branch of government, co-equal to the other branches and we have asserted ourselves in that way.”
Dementia is a horrible thing, isn’t it?
Pelosi is not the Head of the Legislative Branch of our Constitutional Republic.
She is the Speaker of the House of Representatives, established by our Founding Fathers to be like the British House of Commons, that is, the LOWER House of Congress with the Senate being patterned after the House of Lords, or, the UPPER House.
The United States Constitution mentions the position of Speaker but gives it no unique powers.
Also, nowhere in the Constitution does it state that the three branches of government are “co-equal”. The president does not answer to congress. He can act on his own accord concerning matters of national security and foreign policy. And, the Judicial Branch, i.e., the courts, have the ability to overturn legislation passed by Congress.
And, while I’m thinking about it, did y’all ever hear Pelosi claim that Cryin’ John Boehner or Vichy Republican Paul Ryan was the equal of Former President Barack Hussein Obama?
Pelosi and the Dems have conveniently forgotten that King Barack the First acted on his own authority several times, including his work with DACA and several revisions of Obamacare.
As the first article in this post demonstrates, President Trump has full Constitutional Authority to build a Border Wall in order to protect our Sovereign Nation.
Whether Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats up on Capitol Hill want him to or not.

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! – Isaiah 5:20
Consider, if you will, a country in which its president is being sued for keeping his promise to protect his country’s citizens.
…a country where a black actor hires 2 extras from his television show to dress up like supporters of a sitting president, put a noose around his neck and rough him up, simply because the president happens to be from the opposite political party as the actor, and the actor is still upset over his candidate having been defeated in the last election.
…a country in which the Speaker of the House of Representatives proclaims that her political party is “doing the Lord’s Work”, while supporting killing babies after they are born.
“You are traveling through a previously unknown country, a country whose population has politically been torn asunder, a country whose Democratic Leadership have forsworn its traditional faith and values to embrace those of its enemies. A country whose great promise is once again being realized, despite the best efforts of its enemies within. There’s a signpost up ahead. Next stop, America 2019.”
This country has been pulling apart at the seams since the night of November 8, 2016, which Donald J. Trump was elected as our 45th President.
And the thing is, it is not his fault.
The direction which the Modern Democratic Party has taken to the Far Left of the Political Spectrum has put them at odds with the majority of Americans who still hold dear the Traditional Faith and Values System upon which our Sovereign Nation was founded.
In an article written for Decision Magazine dated February 12, 2012, America’s Pastor, Rev. Billy Graham, wrote on the subject of “Confusing Evil With Good”. Here are some excerpts…
Humanity has always been dexterous at confusing evil with good. That was Adam and Eve’s problem, and it is our problem today. If evil were not made to appear good, there would be no such thing as temptation. It is in their close similarity that the danger lies.
Modern social righteousness often differs from the righteousness of the Bible. Someone has said: “A wrong deed is right if the majority of people declare it not to be wrong.” By this principle we can see our standards shifting from year to year according to the popular vote! Divorce was once frowned upon by society, and laws against fornication and adultery were strictly enforced. But now divorce is accepted by society, and fornication is glorified in our literature and films.
The Bible says: “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil.” God has not changed. His standards have not been lowered. God still calls immorality a sin, and the Bible says God is going to judge it.
Honesty was once the hallmark of character. But it has been set aside with an “It’s all right if you don’t get caught” philosophy. Only when we are in court are we required to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
…How do we get our values so mixed up? How do we fall into this trap of Satan? For one thing, we’re shortsighted. We look for shortcuts to happiness. Our lust for immediate pleasure prompts us to think of evil as good.
In one of novelist John Steinbeck’s books he has a character saying: “If it succeeds, they will be thought not crooked but clever.” In our desire to achieve success quickly, it is easy to get our values mixed up and call evil good and good evil.
Another way to call evil good is to say that morals are relative. Someone has said: “As the occasion, so the behavior.” We have changed our moral code to fit our behavior instead of changing our behavior to harmonize with our moral code. Nothing is firm today. We are not on solid ground. Young people are shifting from one side to the other. Morally, they are drifting aimlessly without compass or guide.
Still another way that evil is called good is for the conscience to be perverted, and certainly our consciences today are perverted. But right is right even if nobody is right, and wrong is wrong even if everybody is wrong. God does not change the moral law to suit our behavior.
…The modern conscience has been twisted and distorted so badly that it is difficult to tell what is genuine and what is false.
Self-centeredness is another reason we are so inclined to call evil good. When something brings profit or pleasure to us we are inclined to call evil good, even though we know it is dead wrong. “But it’s what I’ve always wanted,” or, “It’s good for me, although I know it’s wrong” are the alibis we have manufactured to justify evil and call it good.
It is very apparent that there is something that is literally tearing apart the fabric of our country.
The only conclusion that I, as a Christian American can reach, is the fact that our Sovereign Nation is in the midst of SPIRITUAL WARFARE for its very soul.
Make no mistake about it, boys and girls, EVIL EXISTS.
My friends, I believe that we are fighting a war against “princes and principalities”. Evil is still alive and well and flourishing in a world in which relative morality and situational ethics are increasingly being accepted as normal behavior.
We see it everyday around us.
It inundates the cable news channels, 24 hours a day. Heck, you can even see it on Facebook.
Since Cain slew Able with a rock, mankind, because we are all fallen creatures, has had to deal with the presence of evil in our lives.
From the legendary massacres, perpetrated by Vlad the Impaler, to the horrific scenes of Hitler’s Concentration Camps, to the killing fields of Pol Pot, to the massacre of innocent Middle Eastern Christians by Islamic State, to the murders by Chicago Street Gangs every night, the Forces of Evil continue to flourish across the globe.
Who we as a nation are struggling with are those forces who want to turn our country into not just an immoral society, but, an amoral one, whose concept of right and wrong is “Whatever Gets You Through the Night (It’s Alright. It’s Alright.)”, and whose ultimate authority is not the God of Abraham, but a Godless All-Powerful Central Government, whose credo is
From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. (Karl Marx)
Just as Marxism has failed wherever it has been tried before, so, if allowed to do so, it would lead to America’s downfall.
The galling thing is the fact that, even though American Christians remain 75% of the population, we are propagandized and suppressed by the Liberals in both the Old and New Media, to make it seem as if WE are the Minority, when, in fact, WE are the overwhelming Majority.
It is this New Generation of Amoral Socialists, who have taken over the Democratic Party, who are in fact, just a tiny, albeit vocal, Minority of America’s population.
So, what can an average Christian American, like you and me, do about this “Tyranny of the Minority”?
Christians have to make a choice in these tough times whether to allow those who are attempting to “radically change” our Sovereign Nation, given to us by God into a Democratic Socialist Paradise or…
As the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians, we can STAND.
However, you cannot stand without “the full armor of God”. I have found, as have my family and friends, that the better that you are doing, in terms of your Christian Walk, the harder that you will be attacked.
10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.…- Ephesians 6:10-12
Our Christianity as Americans does not and can not end at Noon on Sunday, as we shake the Preacher’s hand and walk out of the sanctuary.
“Onward, Christian Soldiers, marching as to war.”
Because believe me, Americans…we are in one.
Pray for our President.
Pray for our country.

FoxNews.com reports that
President Trump held a campaign-style rally Monday night in El Paso, Texas — just as possible 2020 contender and former U.S. Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke led a border wall protest roughly a half-mile away.
Trump’s event, held at the El Paso County Coliseum for his first “Make America Great Again Rally” of the year, didn’t identify the dueling rally nearby, in the town that sits along the U.S.-Mexico border, but the president did mention O’Rourke.
The “young man” with a “great name,” “challenged us,” the president said in reference to O’Rourke.
“We have, let’s say, 35,000 people tonight, and [O’Rourke] has 200 people, 300 people — not too good,” Trump told the crowd. It was not immediately clear how many people were at Trump and O’Rourke’s events.
President Trump slams Democratic leaders as border wall negotiations break down
Trump added, “In fact, what I would do is, I would say that may be the end of his presidential bid, but he did challenge it.”
The president announced his rally last week during his second State of the Union address, in which he alleged El Paso is now one of the nation’s safest cities because of a “powerful barrier” that was put in place — a claim that others disputed.
He reiterated that point on Monday night. Speaking to the crowd, in front of a large red banner that read, “finish the wall,” Trump said El Paso is one of the “safest cities” in America “thanks for a powerful border wall.”
He claimed that El Paso, compared to Juarez, Mexico, just across the southern border, had far less murders than the nearby Mexican city, adding: “Walls work.”
Moments before the president took the stage Monday, lawmakers reached “an agreement in principle” to fund the government and avoid another partial government shutdown. The deal includes around $1.3 billion for a barrier along the southern border.
Trump mentioned on stage that he didn’t know details, as news of the deal broke just before his rally, but acknowledged that “progress [was] being made” for border security.
The White House last month agreed to a temporary spending bill to end a 35-day partial shutdown, although Trump said at the time that the move was not a “concession” and that he would not relent on his demands for a wall.
The talks had cratered over the weekend because of Democratic demands to limit immigrant detentions by federal authorities, but lawmakers apparently broke through that impasse Monday evening.
Speaking of Beto, according to his people, there were 7,000 in attendance.
They were exaggerating.
Also, what the Main Stream Media will probably not be reporting this morning is that there were several Mexican Flags being flown at the rally.
Of course, that would be detrimental to the “next Obama’s” image.
I thought that, as a politician, you actually had to have a winning record before running for president.
But, I digress…
Last night, American Citizens living in the Lone Star State of Texas heard from a man who genuinely LOVES America and her people, instead of viewing us all as racist, misogynist, xenophobes…the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.
Just like Trump did, with his refusal early in his campaign to “act more presidential”, he is still taking his message directly to the American People.
You see, Gentle Readers, Trump has always been a “people person”.
That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.
As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.
“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.
He knew that the only way to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to be out among them, and speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.
Just as President Trump did when he went on a “Thank You” Tour and as he continues with his Daily Tweets to the American People..
The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.
Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being used by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, the before-mentioned Ronald Wilson Reagan.
While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved effective for both men.
As yesterday’s RasmussenReports.com Presidential Approval Poll number of 52% showed, Trump continues to strike a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living in the part of America, which the snobbish Political Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.
The reason being, President Trump is keeping his promises.
He does not talk down to us while disparaging our Sovereign Nation, as his predecessor did.
Trump talks to us in a plain-spoken, clearly understood way, a style which is in stark contrast to an opposition party full of professional politicians, whose only interest is the regaining of power in Washington, D.C., at whatever the cost.
Last night, the President of the United States of America, the most powerful man in the world, made Texans, along with the rest of us average Americans, feel good about ourselves and the future of our Sovereign Nation by repeating his vow from last Tuesday’s State of the Union Address:
AMERICA WILL NEVER BE A SOCIALIST COUNTRY…NEVER!
And, gentle readers, to see and hear an American President who genuinely loves this country and her people and who was willing to give up his “lifestyle of the rich and famous” in order to secure a safe and prosperous future for American Citizens is indeed a “radical change”.

APNews.com reported yesterday at 11:50 a.m. that
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says there will be no money for President Donald Trump’s border wall in any deal to keep the government open past a Feb. 15 deadline.
A bipartisan group of House-Senate negotiators met for the first time Wednesday, and Pelosi addressed the issue at a session with reporters on Thursday. The California Democrat said she wants to see the negotiators’ bipartisan bill by next Friday.
She told a news conference: “There will not be any wall money in the legislation.”
Trump took to Twitter on Thursday, appearing to sour on the congressional talks and tweeting that Republicans are “wasting their time” trying to negotiate with Democrats.
House Democrats offered a vague border security plan with no money for his wall. Trump wants $5.7 billion for his proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
About that press conference, the American Mirror asks a very pertinent question…
What’s wrong with Nancy Pelosi?
The House Speaker spoke to reporters today (Thursday) for only about 21 minutes, but there were plenty of strange moments as she botched words, suffered face spasms and brain freezes as she attacked President Trump’s proposed border wall and his leadership during the recent partial government shutdown.
Lamenting the recent partial government shutdown, Pelosi said, “Veterans, many of whom— a third of the Republican— federal employees…”
“Maybe we can do something to help our contractors, uh, because they did— are— not getting paid,” she struggled to say.
The House Speaker attempted to read recent votes to reporters, and had trouble finding the right numbers in her notes.
“163— what is it, 163, uh, Democrats, uh, Republicans voted no,” she said, looking at reporters for dramatic effect, “to a resolution that says shutdowns are wrong.”
“163 voted, only 20, um, uh, 1 voted yes on that,” she added.
Addressing another vote, Pelosi said, “Only 29 voted yes on that. 163— 161 voted no,” she corrected herself.
After marring “conference committee,” she said, “A hundred— thousand new Customs officers.”
The House Speaker let out a big sigh as she said new equipment would catch “Fentenile” at mail processing facilities.
A jaw problem caused Pelosi to have trouble saying “Sea to shining sea.”
“Yesterday, we also had a great— yesterday was the anniv— This week, we observed the 10th anniversary of President Obama signing the paycheck— uh, Lily Ledbetter Act,” she struggled to say.
Pelosi corrected herself after she mistakenly said “70 percent” of what comes across the southern border comes through ports of entry. She later said it’s 90 percent.
She attempted to criticize what President Trump said, then asked reporters what he said when she apparently didn’t know.
“It is not a negotiation for the President to say, it’s, it’s,” she said, before stopping and staring towards the ceiling, “what Congress, what did he say today?” she added, leaning towards the reporters in front of her.
While trying to belittle Trump’s border wall proposal, Pelosi said, “When some of these border fences were born— born, were built!”
In yet another possible related story…
Back on October 11, 2017, Stat News reported that pills prescribed for Alzheimer’s Disease were being delivered to Congress by a local Washington Pharmacy.
Mike Kim, the reserved pharmacist-turned-owner of the pharmacy, said he has gotten used to knowing the most sensitive details about some of the most famous people in Washington.
“At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country,” Kim said, listing treatments for conditions like diabetes and Alzheimer’s.
“It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’”
Kim’s tiny pharmacy — which, at its busiest, sends as many as 100 prescriptions to members in a day — is nestled among Capitol Hill’s stateliest row houses, less than four blocks from the Capitol building itself. Founded in 1867 and named for a previous owner, the pharmacy predates penicillin, the American health insurance system, and even the Lincoln Memorial.
Look, we have all been wondering why Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is under the illusion that she is the co-equal of the President o the United States, Donald J. Trump, when the Constitution and our Constitutional Republic form of government clearly state otherwise.
Perhaps she is not the clear thinking Machiavellian genius which all of the Democratic Hierarchy attempt to present her as.
Let’s look at the facts.
Apparently Dementia-riddled “San Fran Nan” Pelosi has been salivating for two years over the opportunity to be Speaker of the House again.
The Democrats have to be the most arrogant and stupid political party in history to believe that attacking a sitting president who has accomplished so much for the American people in so short a time will win them the approval of the average Americans between the two coasts who put him in office in the first place.
They seem to actually believe the Democrat-heavy push polls which falsely show that average Americans oppose a Border Wall.
Their arrogance does not allow them to believe otherwise.
They do not seem to comprehend that it was their overestimation of the popularity of their Far Left political ideology which cost them the 2016 Presidential Election in the first place. Their anti-American policies and blatant political corruption, administrated with joyful glee for 8 long years by Barack Hussein Obama did nothing for Democrats except lose them the presidency by producing a visceral hatred of them by those Americans whom they continue to insult on a daily basis.
The Democrats have not been the party of the “working man” for decades. In fact, since the Far Left have taken over the party, they have become nothing but a conglomeration of special interest groups, drawn together by their desire to “radically change” America into a nation governed by adherents to the failed theories of Karl Marx.
The Democratic Party has done nothing since November of 2016 to attempt to calm down their minions such as the black-robed cowards of Antifa, no matter how their individual candidates promised to “get along” with Republicans during the Midterm Campaign.
Only a couple of them had the spine to condemn the actions of these New Bolsheviks, who protested outside of Tucker Carlson’s house a few months back, scaring his wife and almost busting down his front door.
What the Democrats need to remember is that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, as we are seeing with their passing of bills into law allowing for abortions up until birth.
In the case of their planned investigations against President Trump, they need to remember that they live in a humongous glass house.
Between the leaking of congressional secrets through the Congressional IT Scandal involving Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Hillary Clinton Private Server Usage and Clinton Foundation Pay-For-Play Scandals, and the whole sordid FBI /DOJ/FISA Warrant Deep State Spying Scandal, the President has multiple opportunities to have the Senate and the temporary Attorney General bring investigations of his own.
Losing the presidency in 2016 did not smarten up the Democrats at all.
If they go ahead with their Open Borders and Day of Birth Abortion policies and their fool-hardy plans to spend the next two years “investigating” Donald Trump, Nancy, Chuck, and the rest of the “useful idiots”are very likely setting themselves up to go the way of the Whigs.
…And, it couldn’t happen to a “nicer” bunch.
The Democratic Majority in the House’s only hope of increasing their popularity is to make Nancy Pelosi abdicate her House Speakership and put in her place someone who will actually work with President Trump as Former Speaker Newt Gingrich worked with Former President Bill Clinton.
With an addled Nancy Pelosi being second in line to assume the presidency if something, God forbid, were to happen to President Trump, her mental and physical health is not just an issue…
It is a VERY SERIOUS ISSUE.

FoxNews.com reports that
President Trump said Sunday he doubted he could accept any agreement struck by congressional negotiators that would give him less than his requested $5.7 billion for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border as White House officials dangled the possibility of another partial shutdown next month.
The president also cast doubt on the prospect of lawmakers reaching any agreement before funding for most government agencies runs out on Feb. 15, telling The Wall Street Journal: “I personally think it’s less than 50-50, but you have a lot of very good people on that board.”
On Friday, Trump signed legislation ending the 35-day shutdown without any funding for his long-promised border barrier, a reversal from last month when he refused to sign any funding legislation that did not provide wall money.
“I have to do it right,” Trump insisted to the Journal on Sunday, adding that another partial shutdown was “certainly an option.” The president also cast doubt on any deal that would trade wall funding for increased protections or citizenship for Dreamers, a group of immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children, calling it “a separate subject to be taken up at a separate time.”
When asked on CBS News’ “Face The Nation” if Trump was prepared to wage another shutdown fight over the wall, acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney answered: “Yeah, I think he actually is.”
“This is a serious humanitarian and security crisis,” Mulvaney said. “And, as president of the United States, [Trump] takes the security of the nation as his highest priority.”
Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” Mulvaney said “the right way” to fund the wall would be through legislation passed by Congress.
“But at the end of the day,” he added, “the president is going to secure the border one way or another.”
The White House has directed the Army Corps of Engineers to “look at possible ways of funding border security,” including possibly using the president’s emergency powers and unspent disaster relief money.
“I think the president wants his $5.7 billion,” Mulvaney said. “Keep in mind – why is that number? It’s not a number that’s made up. It’s what the experts have told him. He’s listened to DHS. I’ve been in on the meetings. He’s listened to CBP [Customs and Border Patrol], he’s listened to ICE.”
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York, a member of the Democratic leadership in the House, said his colleagues are looking for “evidence-based” legislation.
“Shutdowns are not legitimate negotiating tactics when there’s a public policy disagreement between two branches of government,” he told NBC News’ “Meet The Press.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has said repeatedly that congressional Democrats would not support any legislation that finances the wall.
The president kept up the case for the wall on social media, tweeting: “BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!” On Sunday morning, he pegged the number of illegal immigrants at “25,772,342 … not the 11,000,000 that have been reported for years.” Trump also tweeted that the cost of illegal immigration so far this year was nearly $19 billion. He did not cite a source for either figure.
“I’m not exactly sure where the President got that number this morning,” Mulvaney told “Face The Nation.” “But I think what you see him trying to do is point out how silly this debate is. This is not that much money in the greater scheme of things the United States of America … This should have been resolved a long time ago, and we do hope it gets resolved in the next twenty-one days.”
I feel as if I have written about the situation on the border at least a million times.
I have written about it so many times because it involves our nation’s sovereignty and our continued existence as the nation which our Founding Fathers bequeathed us.
Perhaps I am isolated, living down here in the Northwest Corner of the Magnolia State in the Heart of the Bible Belt. However, I simply cannot logically understand the Far Left Democratic Party and their Congressional Leadership being so desperate to radically change our nation into a Socialist Paradise (a contradiction in terms), that they would allow unskilled laborers, thieves, rapists, and murderers, including members of MS-13, to invade our country.
My Daddy, God rest him, did not step off of a perfectly fine boat into a hail of gunfire, wading onto the beach at Normandy, France for this bunch of Norman Matoon Thomas wannabes on Capitol Hill to destroy America from within, turning us into an giant Venezuela.
Norman Matoon Thomas was a six time Presidential Candidate representing the Socialist Party of America. The following quote from him is becoming a reality right before our very eyes,
The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.
The incremental growth of our federal government, as we have already witnessed over the last several decades, thanks to an unrelenting push by Democrats and Vichy Republicans alike, will accelerate into “Ludicrous Speed” (Spaceballs: The Movie) if these caravans containing thousands of illegal immigrants are allowed into our Sovereign Nation without being stopped by a physical barrier.
The “useful idiots” breaking in to our country will join the useful idiots who are already here and the Hierarchy of the Democratic Party in a mutually beneficial quest to turn a nation built on capitalism into a third world barrio created by socialism, a mirror image of the impoverished countries which they sought to escape from…supposedly.
As I have previously written , President Trump knows that the ideologues in the Democratic Party Hierarchy have no intention whatsoever to negotiate in good faith.
And, as the above article alluded to, he already has plans in place to build the wall without them.
I believe that he sees the same possible future that I just described, and like the overwhelming majority of Americans living between the East and Left Coasts who voted for him, he wants no part of it.
As President of the United States of America, he is charged with securing the safety of our country and its citizens.
Therefore, he is completely within his power to build those physical barriers along our Southern Border in order to keep both his Campaign Promise to American Citizens and to fulfill his Presidential Duties.
And, if Pelosi, Schumer and the rest of the Democrats and Vichy Republicans on Capitol Hill make him exercise that “nuclear option”, there isn’t a blessed thing that they can do about it.
