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

Chinese Rover Lands on the Moon

from the Daily Mail:

A Chinese rover is making its tracks on the soft surface of the ‘dark’ side of the moon after touching down on our nearest celestial neighbour.Image result for chinese rover

The Yutu-2 – or Jade Rabbit 2 – rover drove off its lander’s ramp and onto the exterior of the moon’s far side at 10:22pm Beijing time (2:22 pm GMT) on Thursday, about 12 hours after the Chinese spacecraft carrying it came to rest.

China’s space agency later posted a photos online, revealing lunar rover several yards away from the spacecraft.

The tracks it makes on the surface of the moon will be forever immortalised and will never be lost as there is no wind on the moon due to its lack of an atmosphere. read more

No Contrition Over the Houston Shooting Incident

How could they have been so wrong? I mean, for all the supposed “witnesses” to Jazmine Barnes’ seemingly random killing to be 100% wrong is incomprehensive in any other setting and in any other scenario.

What we thought we knew 

And by that, I mean days ago, not decades ago.

It was 6:30 A.M. Sunday, December 30, 2018. It was still dark in Houston Texas. LaPorsha Washington drove her four daughters, including 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes, in the family’s silver car to the local Walmart near Houston. Jazmine was seated in the back directly behind her mom.

“Fifteen-year-old Alexis Dilbert, Washington’s oldest daughter, was sitting in the front passenger seat when she noticed a red truck pull up beside their vehicle. She described the driver as a blue-eyed white man wearing a black hoodie and looking sickly. The family, who is black, didn’t give the truck a second thought until it changed lanes, moving around from behind to the driver’s side of Washington’s vehicle and the driver opened fired. Washington was hit by gunfire in her arm. Jazmine was shot in the head and died at the scene.” read more

On a Collision Course with a Cloud

An artist’s imagining of the night sky from Earth as the Milky Way collides with neighboring galaxy Andromeda – a new study shows that the Large Magellanic Cloud will also smash into the Milky Way much sooner(Credit: NASA, ESA, Z. Levay and R. van der Marel (STScI), T. Hallas, and A. Mellinger)

When we think of celestial threats to our planet, we usually think of big asteroids and comets, and maybe the odd gamma ray burst or supernova. What we probably wouldn’t think of is an entire galaxy bearing down on us, but according to a new study, that’s exactly what’s happening right now. The Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a nearby dwarf galaxy, is on a collision course with the Milky Way, but there’s no need to worry just yet – the starry smashup won’t begin for another two billion years or so. 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 – Climate Change Collapsed an Empire – Democrat Amendments

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Akkadia was the world’s first empire.

It was established in Mesopotamia around 4,300 years ago after its ruler, Sargon of Akkad, united a series of independent city states.

Yet after just 100 years, the empire collapsed due to … Climate Change.

But when they tried to flee the empire they discovered their enemies to the South had built a border wall to keep them out.

Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee introduced two Constitutional Amendments after the dems took back the House.

The first is to limit the President’s Constitutional authority to grant pardons. Like everything for the next two years, it’s all to hamper Trump’s presidential powers.

The second is to abolish the Electoral College. Democrats wish elections of the President to be determined only by popular vote. read more

Mitt Romney is a Shill for the Washington Post

from David Limbaugh at WND:

TRUMP ISN’T THE ENEMY, MR. ROMNEYImage result for Mitt romney washington post

Two days before he was sworn in as Utah’s junior U.S. senator, Mitt Romney published an op-ed in the Washington Post, publicly broadcasting, once again, his disapproval of President Donald Trump. Disappointing, but not surprising.

Something seems to compel those in the never-Trump crowd not only to perpetually obsess over Trump but also to constantly remind us of their profound distaste for him – lest it escape our top-of-mind awareness.

A few things popped out at me when I read Romney’s piece – apart from his flagrant hypocrisy in reigniting his public relations campaign against Trump after abandoning it when seeking to be Trump’s secretary of state. read more

Irish Dirt Kills New Superbugs

Soil found in rural Northern Ireland could hold the key to fighting antibiotic resistance, researchers believe.

Doctors and scientists are desperately searching for new ways to kill superbugs – and the new finding could pave the way.

A study found dirt from County Fermanagh can stop the growth of drug-resistant bacteria, such as the hospital superbug MRSA.

The discovery has been hailed as an ‘important step forward’ in the progress against antibiotic resistance, considered one of the biggest threats to humanity.

The new bacteria discovered in the soil from County Fermanagh, streptomyces sp. myrophorea (pictured under a microscope) can halt the spread of superbugs including MRSA

Why Did Jefferson Own a Koran?

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

I read an article yesterday from the Daily Wire which I was just going to reprint. Then I read it and thought, rather than just post the article, I should set the record straight by adding some context.

The article is simply about newly elected Muslim Congresswoman, Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who decided to take the oath of office using, not the Bible, but the Koran. And not just any Koran, but Thomas Jefferson’s Koran.

I encourage you to first read the Daily Wire piece, which gives an accounting, without commentary, of the swearing in and why she used Jefferson’s Koran.

Then come back and read the actual historical accounting of why Thomas Jefferson owned a Koran.

For more than a century and a half prior to America declaring its independence from Great Britain, the Muslim pirates of the Barbary Coast (North Africa) had been invading European settlements, villages and capturing merchant vessels from the Mediterranean Sea, to the Atlantic coast of Europe and the English Channel. Thousands upon thousands of Europeans were sold into slavery as laborers and concubines throughout the Islamic world. Most would never be seen again. read more
