Don’t Back Down on Border Security

from the Resurgent:

Stand Fast, Mr. President

Democrats across America are currently declaring racist the very policies they supported under Barack Obama. It was not racist or immoral when he decided to add border barriers. It was not racist or immoral when George W. Bush did. It was not racist or immoral when Bill Clinton did. But Democrats are so invested in believing the worst about President Trump that they are willing to reject the very policies they supported only a few years ago. read more

WND Exclusive – ANOTHER COMPROMISE PLAN FOR THE WALL

by: Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

I’ve heard many conservative commentators and pundits speaking about Trump’s national emergency powers and how he should use them.

Top of the list appears to be this scenario.

Negotiations, if you can even call them that, have gone nowhere. So, it’s posited, Trump will appear to back down and agree to end the shutdown – after which he will then invoke his presidential authority under the 1976 National Emergencies Act, [50 U.S.C. 1601, 1621, 1622] and declare a national emergency on the border, secure funding from a number of government sources and get the wall built.

Rather, Trump should declare an emergency prior to signing an agreement to end the government shutdown. Anything less would be ill-advised. read more

Witless Jim Acosta Makes Trump’s Border Barrier Argument for Him

Jim Acosta makes Trump point a border walls/fences, etc! Question is – does he know how foolish he looks, or is it a case of bad press is better than none at all.

You must first watch this brief one-minute video clip.

Careful Democrats – You’re Hypocrisy is Showing

President Trump’s performance from the Oval Office on Tuesday was OK to good. It wasn’t great – it wasn’t Reganesque. Some might say he looked uncomfortable and wooden.

But that’s not Trump’s fault. This isn’t what he does. What he does well is play to the people.

The public is used to the boisterous Trump – animated, adlibbing at rallies and looking at home. Despite having years of experience as star of the Apprentice, he did not appear at ease in front of the lone camera.

However, he looked sincere, because he is sincere. For him, and us who support him, this has nothing at all to do with politics. This is about safety, security, fairness and the rule of law. Easily his best line of the night: “Some have suggested a barrier is immoral. But then why do politicians build walls, fences and gates around their homes? They don’t do it because they hate the people on the outside — they do it because they love the people on the inside.” read more

Congress Already Granted Trump the Power to Build the Wall

from Conservative Review:

Yes, the president has the authority to build the wall

Presidents are free to deploy our troops to 140 countries without congressional authorization and build all sorts of wall and infrastructure in these countries, yet we are told a president can’t take a basic defensive action to repel an invasion of our own country: the construction of a wall twice authorized and even mandated by Congress. In reality, while it would be better for Congress to explicitly fund a new wall, the president is right to leverage the debate by threatening to use power Congress has already delegated to at least begin constructing portions of the wall. Whether we agree with such delegation or not, there is no more appropriate situation in which it should be used than with our own border. read more

WND Exclusive – OF CARAVANS AND WALLS

16 Days of government shutdown and still counting.

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Well, the government is still shutdown. And all over a paltry $5 billion to partially fund more of the southern border wall, which, according to Democrats, is expensive, ineffective and immoral. Back in April 2017, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, speaking with NBC’s Chuck Todd, said that all this talk about building a wall is just Trump admitting that he can’t control our border. Yes, like his predecessors did such a great job.

Meanwhile there’s a new caravan already on the move. The original estimated date of departure from Honduras was to be Jan. 15, 2019. But Mexico News reported that it was on its way as of Dec. 24.

It is said to be 15,000 strong. If this is anywhere near accurate, by the time the caravan makes it through Guatemala and El Salvador, it could be double that size. The interesting thing about this caravan is, according to sources, many have no plans to come to the United States. read more

Video Podcast – I Agree with the President

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The government shutdown is upon us. Has anyone noticed? No? Of course no one has noticed. It’s the weekend heading into Christmas. But the government “closes” every weekend and holiday. Yet somehow, we’re supposed to fear the shutdown, because somehow it’s different than the government just closing.

Trump was right to announce that we’re pulling boots-on-the-ground out of Syria. On that, I agree. I didn’t agree with how he did it. I explain why in segment two.

In segment three, I give advice to Trump on how he should handle the shutdown by explaining, via his bully pulpit and on national TV, why the border wall is so vital. As if he needs my advice. read more

Trump Can Fund the Entire Border Wall

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

It’s evident that the democrats do not want border security. Both Pelosi and Schumer made this quite clear during and after their sit down with president Trump.

Because of this impasse, Trump tweeted: “If the Democrats do not give us the votes to secure our Country, the Military will build the remaining sections of the Wall.”

Ami Goes South of the Border

A few days ago, Prager University released another video on YouTube. This segment is about, what else, the caravan. Ami Horowitz, American documentary filmmaker, and writer, producer, and director of Ami on the Streets, left the comfort of the United States and headed South to join the caravan in the process of moving through Mexico to our Southern border. Embedded with caravan, he learned some rather revealing things.

Watch the video, although it’s doubtful you’ll enjoy it: read more

Trump Can Use his Veto Pen and Bully Pulpit to End Illegal Immigration

The question is…will he?

from Conservative Review:

The American taxpayer is ALWAYS the Forgotten Man — especially in the immigration fight

The president will never have as much leverage or a better impetus for a budget fight than he does now. Will he finally demand action and use his veto for leverage?

On December 8, the government will face its final budget deadline with Republicans in control of the trifecta of government. A budget, at its core, is an expression of our values. There is no greater value more relevant to this budget deadline than protecting the taxpayers from the high cost of illegal aliens invading our border, draining our schools and communities, and flooding us with the most deadly drugs and gangs that help fund international terrorism. It’s high time for Trump to finally take his case to the American people in dramatic fashion and threaten to veto any bill that fails to address the border crisis, not just from the standpoint of funding the border wall, but also ending the invasion permanently. read more
