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

Another Plea for Mike Lee

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had another health scare recently. After surgery and treatment she has apparently been given a clean Image result for supreme courtbill of health.

But this latest scare has once again prompted many to speculate just when Ginsburg will decide to hang it up, or that her failing health might decide.

This will mean that Trump will get a third bite at the supreme Court apple.

Many thought that the Kavanaugh confirmation would flip the court from progressive to constitutionalist, but that may not end up being the case. This one however, could put the final nail in the coffin of leftist court activism.

But recent history is replete with Republican “wrong” choices for supreme Court, from David Souter to John Paul Stevens, Sandra Day O’Connor and, of course, Mr. swing-vote, Anthony Kennedy. Chief Justice John Roberts has turned out be anything but a constitutionalist. Thanks to Roberts, we have ObamaCare. 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

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

President Trump’s popularity among voters has remained relatively consistent over the past couple of years. The haters on the left are baffled by this.

They don’t like it, but I think they’ve accepted the loyalty to and adoration of him by his hard-core supporters. It’s the others they don’t get. Why hasn’t he lost these voters?

Speaking for myself and many like me, we haven’t abandoned him because we’ve successfully been able to separate his policies from his antics.

And they don’t like this either, but the left may also be coming to accept this phenomenon.

What they can’t understand, accept or even tolerate is the support he has garnered among some minority groups. And worse is the fact that it has not waned. 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
