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

Even MSNBC Admits the Caravan is Mostly Men

We’ve been saying this since the caravan was first formed in Honduras. The overwhelming majority of the migrants are males – not families – not women and children.

from the Blaze:

Even this MSNBC reporter had to admit the truth about caravan migrants at the border

An MSNBC reporter unraveled a common narrative on the left about caravan migrants while reporting about the situation at the U.S. border Monday.

“This has become such a polarizing issue…”

Gadi Schwartz was reporting for MSNBC from the border when he admitted that the majority of the migrants were males, and that the majority of them were not talking about requesting refugee status at all.

The exchange began when MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle asked Schwartz to undermine the claims from President Donald Trump and right-wing critics of the caravans. read more

A New Cloward and Piven Three-Prong Attack

Break the Welfare system – break the asylum/immigration system – break the election system.

Many of us who follow politics are either familiar with or have at least heard of Cloward and Piven – Richard Cloward and Francis Fox Piven. They were `60s era radicals dressed up as Columbia University professors. Of course we can probably describe most college professors in the same manner.

The famous, or infamous article describing their plan was originally crafted in the 60’s, and re-released in 2015 on The Nation.com
website as part of “The Nation’s 150th Anniversary Special Issue.”

The article is entitled, “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty.

The essence of their scheme was/is, “A mass strategy to recruit the poor onto welfare rolls would create a political crisis that could result in legislation that brings an end to poverty.” read more

Republicans Must get Back to a Safety and Security Platform

If we want to win back the House, retain the Senate and give the president another four years, Republicans must get back to what we know – Security.

In August, Daniel Horowitz of Conservative Review posted a 25 point safety and security platform to run on an win. As recent polls prove, this platform is a sure winner across the entire spectrum of reasonable voters.

Poll results in key States proved that Trump’s stance on immigration was spot on:

Arizona: 35% “too tough;” 58% “about right/not tough enough”

Texas: 43%-52%

Georgia: 35%-60%

Florida: 41%-54%

Sadly, few ran on this platform. It’s time for candidates in the 2020 races to take heed and win.

25 no-brainer immigration plans to make America safer — and win the election

Republicans are bleeding their traditional suburban voters at a quick pace. They are without a narrative and nearly out of time to make a difference for this election. When they return from summer recess, they have one final opportunity to either make a big play on the top issue on voter’s minds. Or they could simply monkey it up by running out the clock while they are losing.

According to recent polls, immigration is the top concern of voters. And for good reason. It touches on every important economic, security, and cultural issue voters care about, and unlike other issues, it is amazingly simple to solve. We can choose our own immigrants, period.

Here is a list of 25 ideas, most of which have already been introduced as legislation, that are political winners and will completely reorient the narrative of this election. This is not a complete list of the best ways to deter illegal immigration and reform the broader system, but they are all commonsense reforms that are easy to communicate and would effectively deter illegal immigration without touching on certain sensitivities of weak GOP members (assuming they really want to solve the issue). As you are reading through them, imagine the powerful ads that could be created to expose all the Democrats opposing them, particularly those senators up for re-election in red states.

Border Security

1) Fund the wall with foreign aid from home countries of illegal aliens: H.R. 6657, sponsored by Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., would reduce foreign aid to countries whose nationals are apprehended at the border by $2,000 per illegal. The funds would be directed to an account for the border wall. In addition, it would levy fees on foreign remittances and raises certain fees for visa applications, with the funds going towards a salary raise and restoring overtime pay for border agents.

2) El Chapo Act: H.R. 2186, sponsored by Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, would capture the criminal forfeiture funds of wealthy drug smugglers to be used for the border wall.

Dems Want to Count Non-Citizen Votes – What a Surprise

It seems that left to own their devices, the democrats will never just do the right thing. It’s ever and only about winning and winning at any and all cost.

Gillum, Nelson lawyers object to discarding non-citizen vote, now suing to recount excluded ballots

On Friday, attorneys for both Andrew Gillum and Bill Nelson objected to disqualifying a non-citizen vote during the Palm Beach County Canvassing Board proceedings, as outlined in a transcript from the court reporter hired by the Palm Beach County GOP to create a record of the meeting, which is open to the public. read more

Democrat Immigration Hypocrisy on Display Yet Again

from the Daily Caller:

FEINSTEIN URGED OBAMA TO USE PRESIDENTIAL POWER TO LIMIT IMMIGRATION: ‘NO LEGISLATION NECESSARY’

  • Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California encouraged then-President Barack Obama to use broad presidential powers to tighten immigration rules in response to a wave of migration from Central America in 2014.
  • In a letter to Obama, Feinstein cited the same statutory authority that President Donald Trump invoked to make illegal border-crossers ineligible for asylum.
  • That authority comes from Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which allows the president to “impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein encouraged then-President Barack Obama to use the “very broad power” granted to him by Congress to limit immigration in any way he saw fit, according to a letter obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. read more

The Migrant March to Violence

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio VersionImage result for Migrants tear down fence

Many are saying we can’t use troops on the border – that they aren’t law enforcement. They’re right – the military isn’t law enforcement. But why are we treating a several thousand strong potential invasion like a law enforcement issue?

Who else would you use to repel an invasion? And don’t tell me this isn’t a planned and orchestrated event.

What would you call a well coordinated throng of thousands of people simultaneously attempting to cross our border without our consent? If it’s not an invasion – you tell me what is.

And it doesn’t need to be an armed invasion. In my opinion, the leftist cheer squad who want this “border crossing” to occur, don’t want these people armed.

They are, I’m sure of it, hoping for another Gaza border incident where the Israelis got almost unanimously admonished by the press for defending their own border. Every world wide leftist condemned them – not the Palestinians and not Hamas.

Those on the left want the issue and nothing more. They want to continue the fairy tale that democrats are the party of immigrants and diversity and Republicans are the party of white privilege and bigotry. In their hearts, every reasonable person knows illegal immigration is wrong, which is why they purposely blur the lines between legal and illegal immigration. read more

Can We Built the Wall Already?!

Earlier I posted an article on Afghanistan and how since the war began, we’ve poured $2 trillion into the effort with little results and less accountability. Yet we can’t come up with a paltry $25 billion for a Southern border wall which, when completed, will present full accountability and save trillions over time. Instead, the few real patriots left in government have to concoct elaborate plans to raise the funds.

from the Washington Free Beacon:

Inhofe Rolls Out Plan to Pay for Wall

Senator Jim Inhofe (R., Okla.) announced Thursday a proposal to fully fund a border wall along the southwestern border, offsetting the cost by reducing illegal immigrants’ access to federal welfare. read more

Trump is Constitutionally Correct in Ending Birthright Citizenship

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

The subject of birthright citizenship is once again in the news. President Trump says he intends to sign an Executive order ending the practice. Leftists and faux-constitutional scholars are up in arms. What a shock.

CNN writes that, “Such a step would be regarded as an affront to the US Constitution, which was amended 150 years ago to include the words: ‘All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States.’”

In 2015, then candidate Trump exclaimed his desire to deport all illegal aliens. In rebuttal, Robert Tracinski at The Federalist  argued that deporting birthright citizens would be a direct assault on the Constitution and “the thousand year history of English common law.”

Tracinski explained that at the time of the founding, America embraced birthright citizenship – that “for the Founders, rejecting jus soli or birthright citizenship would have meant either greatly restricting the growth and expansion of the new nation or, more likely, creating a system in which there was a large and growing subpopulation of people who were disenfranchised in the land of their own birth. An idea totally incompatible with a government based on the consent of the governed.” read more

WND Exclusive – So Who is Funding the Migrant Caravan?

Someone or group of someones is funding this ever-expanding “migrant caravan” heading for a showdown at the U.S./Mexico border.

So who is it? As of yet, no one seems to know for sure, and very few seem interested in finding out

We’ve heard Vice President Mike Pence say: “At the president’s direction I spoke to President [Juan Orlando] Hernandez of Honduras. He told me that the caravan that’s now making its way through Mexico headed for the southern border was organized by leftist organizations and financed by Venezuela.”

Glenn Beck theorized the same, saying that “this is a Honduran political stunt organized by a leftist group that has ties to the former Marxist president who was exiled after a coup in 2009.”

Like the Democrats after the 2016 election, Beck says Honduran Marxists “never got over it.” He claims that the organizers and financiers of the march “have ties to the Castros in Cuba and Maduro in Venezuela. This stunt is designed for media fallout, and it’s timed very specifically for maximum exposure.” read more
