Trump Grounds Pelosi – Can You Hear Me Now?

January 18, 2019

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump’s decision Thursday to deny House Speaker Nancy Pelosi military aircraft for an overseas trip drew sharp reactions from both Democrats and Republicans.

In a letter to Pelosi, the president “postponed” the trip just minutes before the congressional delegation was set to depart. The “excursion” would be rescheduled following the end of the partial government shutdown, he said.

“In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate,” Trump wrote. “I also feel that, during this period, it would be better if you were in Washington negotiating with me and joining the Strong Border Security movement to end the Shutdown.”

While Trump pulled the plug on using military aircraft for the journey, he gave the Democratic leader the option of flying commercially.

“Obviously, if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial, that would certainly be your prerogative,” Trump wrote.

The president’s move to cancel Pelosi’s trip came after the House speaker’s request to delay his annual State of the Union address — though one White House official claimed the aircraft decision was not a “response” to Pelosi’s letter.

Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a frequent supporter of the administration, admonished both Trump and Pelosi for their actions, tweeting: “One sophomoric response does not deserve another.”

“Speaker Pelosi’s threat to cancel the State of the Union is very irresponsible and blatantly political,” Graham continued. “President Trump denying Speaker Pelosi military travel to visit our troops in Afghanistan, our allies in Egypt and NATO is also inappropriate.”

Graham continued on Twitter, writing that he approved of Pelosi’s efforts to visit U.S. troops, but was “very disappointed she’s playing politics with the State of the Union.”

“I wish our political leadership could find the same desire to work for common goals as those who serve our nation in uniform and other capacities,” he tweeted.

There appeared to be some conflicting information as to where the delegation was traveling, however. In his letter, Trump wrote that the trip was to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan.

But Drew Hammill, a spokesman for Pelosi, tweeted that the group was going to Afghanistan, with “a required stop in Brussels for pilot rest.” But they were not scheduled to visit Egypt, he wrote.

“In Brussels, the delegation was scheduled to meet with top NATO commanders, U.S. military leaders and key allies–to affirm the United States’ ironclad commitment to the NATO alliance,” Hammill tweeted. “The purpose of the trip was to express appreciation & thanks to our men & women in uniform for their service & dedication, & to obtain critical national security & intelligence briefings from those on the front lines.”

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-MD., criticized Trump’s maneuver, saying it was “petty,” “small” and “vindictive.”

“It is unbecoming of the president of the United States. But it is unfortunately a daily occurrence,” he told reporters.

Republican Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar tweeted an offer to the Speaker, inviting her to join himself and fellow Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs “at the border this weekend” in their home state.

Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson of Florida also tweeted, calling out the “tit-for-tat move,” saying Pelosi was “the only one” involved in the trip who was “being singled out.”

Nancy Pelosi and her Democratic Fellow Travelers in the House of Representatives remind me of a young fellow I had working with me several years ago when I was a Director of Audio Visual Services in a Convention Center in an area full of Hotels and Casinos.

When this fellow was hired on by my company as my Assistant Director, he somehow got it in his head that he was my equal, not my subordinate.

Needless to say, after about a year of me doing most of the work, selling our services, planning events, and setting up and tearing down events, he was shown the door.

Since she regained the position of Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi has viewed herself as President Trump’s equal, if not his superior.

Yesterday, she received her comeuppance.

This whole fight for dominance reminds me of the Classic movie “Caddyshack”, in which the late, great Rodney Dangerfield played a hard-working Blue Collar American who had made a fortune in the construction business. He joined a country club named Bushwood for the purpose of playing golf and conducting business with clients while on the links.

The snotty folks whose families had been members for years looked down their noses at him. In their eyes, he just didn’t belong. He laughed too much and didn’t behave as they did. They also believed that this “common” man wasn’t as smart as they were.

In the end, he triumphed over the snobs, helping a young caddy out along the way.

President Donald J. Trump has come into Washington, DC and upset the Elite’s Political Apple Cart, disrupting the Washingtonian Status Quo.

Professional Politicians, on both sides of the Political Aisle, have never understood the fact that this outsider whom average Americans elected as our 45th President, is a very intelligent man.

He is a self-made BILLIONAIRE, for gosh sakes.

Pelosi, Hoyer, Schiff, and their fellow Democrats in the House thought they would be able to outwit Trump, trick him, or outlast him in the fight for a wall on our Southern Border.

They thought wrong.

Pelosi’s petulant attempt to cancel the State of the Union Address by lying about security issues precipitated Trump’s actions of yesterday.

The Speaker and over 100 fellow Democrats were about to leave on a trip designed to undermine President Trump’s Foreign Policy.

Trump’s action yesterday was not only appropriate, it was brilliant.

By cancelling Pelosi’s use of that military transport plane, he not only reminded her who is the Commander-in-Chief, he embarrassed the Democrats in front of the American people and the entire world.

Pelosi’s already taken a vacation to Hawaii and other Democrats went to Puerto Rico to be bribed by Lobbyists (I’m sure).

It’s time for them to act like public servants and work with the president to secure our nation’s Southern Border.

Our National Security is at stake.

Until He Comes,

Ohr Provided Details of Meetings with Phony Dossier Author to FBI in 2016, Two Agents There Now Work For Mueller

January 17, 2019

90 (3)

Just when you think that the gigantic convoluted spider’s web of corruption involving the Deep State Operation designed to Candidate and Now President Trump down couldn’t get any more corrupt…

FoxNews.com reports that

Details about Justice Department official Bruce Ohr’s meetings with the author of the salacious anti-Trump dossier were shared by Ohr with his expansive circle of contacts inside the department — including senior FBI leadership and officials now assigned to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, Fox News has learned.

Ohr gave a closed-door transcribed interview last August sharing details of his 2016 meetings with British ex-spy Christopher Steele, who authored the dossier later used to secure a surveillance warrant for a Trump campaign aide. The interview was part of the Republican-led House Oversight and Judiciary Committee probes.

In a series of questions about his meetings with Steele, including one on July 30, 2016, and who he shared the information with, Fox News has confirmed the Ohr transcript stated: “Andy McCabe, yes and met with him and Lisa Page and provided information to him. I subsequently met with Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, and eventually (an FBI agent). And I also provided this information to people in the criminal division specifically Bruce Swartz, Zainab Ahmad, Andrew Weissmann.”

“Andy” is Andrew McCabe, the former FBI deputy director and acting director who left the bureau after the DOJ Inspector General concluded he lied about his role in a media leak about the Clinton Foundation on the eve of the 2016 presidential election. His case is now with the U.S. Attorney in Washington, D.C.  Former FBI Agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page, whose anti-Trump texts emerged after the election, left the bureau last year.

The FBI asked Fox News not to disclose the name of the other agent who met with Ohr. The agent later worked on the case against then-National Security Adviser Mike Flynn in January 2017 which helped form the basis of his guilty plea for lying to the FBI.

According to online bios, Bruce Swartz was identified as a deputy assistant attorney general. Andrew Weissmann was chief of the DOJ Criminal Division’s Fraud Section before becoming a senior prosecutor on Mueller’s team handling the case of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. According to a May 2017 New Yorker profile, Zainab Ahmad worked at the U.S. Attorney’s office in the Eastern District of New York and took a leave to work for then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the Justice Department’s Washington headquarters. Ahmad is now assigned to the special counsel’s investigation.

Fox News asked the FBI, Justice Department and special counsel’s office whether the meetings with Ohr over Steele and the dossier were consistent with — or in conflict with — existing DOJ or FBI rules, including chain-of-custody procedures for handling evidence. In addition, the special counsel’s office was asked whether Weissmann and Ahmad had fully disclosed their contacts with Bruce Ohr and others over the dossier. The FBI and special counsel declined to comment; the DOJ did not immediately respond.

An attorney for Ohr also declined to comment on the interview. An attorney for McCabe did not respond.

Of course, Ohr’s wife, Nellie is an employee of Fusion GPS and worked on the anti-Trump Dossier.

Andrew Weissmann, presently on of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s  “Lead Investigators”, is a veteran government prosecutor known for his work on the Enron task force and for going after mob figures in New York.

Per Heavy.com,

1. Weissmann Served as the FBI’s General Counsel Under Robert Mueller – Before his tenure at the FBI, Weissmann was a partner at Jenner & Block in New York for five years.

2. Weissmann Led the Enron Task Force but Not Without Controversy – Time after time, courts have reversed Weissmann’s most touted ‘victories’ for his tactics. This is hardly the stuff of a hero in the law. Weissmann, as deputy and later director of the Enron Task Force, destroyed the venerable accounting firm of Arthur Andersen LLP and its 85,000 jobs worldwide — only to be reversed several years later by a unanimous Supreme Court.

3. Weissmann Donated Money to President Barack Obama – Weissmann is a Barack Obama and Democratic campaign donor, according to federal records. “Weissmann, who led the Enron investigation, previously gave $2,300 to Obama’s first presidential campaign in 2008 and $2,000 to the Democratic National Committee in 2006, the same year Democrats won control of Congress.

4. Weissmann Attended Princeton & Columbia Universities & Prosecuted Mafia Crime Families – According to the DOJ press release, Weissmann “began his career with the Department of Justice in 1991 at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York, where he served in various leadership positions, including as chief of the Criminal Division. According to Mother Jones, one of the people Weissmann prosecuted had ties to Trump. “As a prosecutor in the Eastern District, Weissmann signed a 1998 cooperation agreement between the US government and Felix Sater, a violent felon and securities trader who had pleaded guilty to financial crimes. Sater went on to become a confidential informant for the FBI and a Trump business partner,” the magazine noted.

5. Some Conservatives Have Noted That Weissmann Was in a Position of Power During the Clinton Uranium Controversy – Some conservatives contend that Mueller has a conflict of interest because they argue the FBI, under his stewardship, should have more thoroughly investigated Bill and Hillary Clinton over a uranium deal known as Uranium One. National Review notes that Andrew Weissmann ran Obama DOJ’s Fraud Section during this time frame.

What the Fox News article at the beginning of this post does not mention is the fact that a second dossier was prepared by Clinton Confidantes Cody Shearer and Richard Blumenthal.

According to Judicial Watch

Blumenthal and Shearer are connected to a global network of intelligence and military freelancers. They played a dangerous game meddling in Libyan affairs after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi. They supplied intelligence to Secretary of State Clinton in the weeks leading up to the Benghazi debacle and pitched deals to make money off the Libyan turmoil. ProPublica reports at length on the Blumenthal and Shearer’s Libyan efforts here. According to Judicial Watch’s reporting, during Mrs. Clinton’s State Department tenure, Blumenthal also promoted African business deals and meddled in European Union elections.

As for Shearer, he has a long history of dirty tricks. He’s been linked to Whitewater-era efforts to dirty up Bill Clinton critics; to shakedown politics involving the Cheyenne-Arapaho Indian tribe; and to fronting for Bosnian Serb butcher Radovan Karadzic.

The Guardian reports that the new Shearer document makes some of the same allegations about Mr. Trump as the original Christopher Steele dossier, including “lewd acts at a five-star hotel” in Moscow. It also notes that Steele passed on the Shearer report to the FBI in October 2016, but would not vouch for its accuracy. That’s worth pausing over.

According to the Guardian, Steele provided “a copy [of the Shearer report] because it corresponded with what he had separately heard from his own independent sources.” If the reporting here is accurate, that’s quite a coincidence—that Cody Shearer and Christopher Steele were hearing the same things from different sources at pretty much the same time. A closer look at timelines and sources might be revealing. If Sid and Cody are behind the original Russian dossier sources, that would be big news indeed.

I do not doubt at all that Bruce Ohr was familiar with that second dossier and if he was familiar, he probably shared those details with the FBI, as well.

I have written before as to how intricate and strategically planned this whole effort to sabotage the Trump Candidacy and now, the Trump Presidency actually is.

The scope of the players is both fascinating and horrifying at the same time.

The professional bureaucrats in the Department of Justice and the FBI who are involved had worked in the Halls of Power for several years.

It is frightening to believe that they were actually able to justify their covert operations against the will of the American People as being “for the good of the country”…and the Washingtonian Status Quo.

The more time that passes and the more details that come out, firmly convinces me that this is the biggest Federal Government Scandal in history.

And, the same Deep State Bureaucrats involved in 2016 are still involved in the ongoing attempt to bring down President Donald J. Trump and undo the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.

Watergate was a fight between kids in a sandbox compared to this convoluted catastrophe.

The sooner this whole mess is wrapped up and the guilty swamp creatures are exiled from the D.C. swamp, the better off this country will be.

Largest Caravan Yet Heading This Way, Organized By Norwegian Refugee Council…What is Going on Here?

January 16, 2019

tral_america_migrant_caravan.jpg_ga3xtzx_t1200

FoxNews.com reports that

As a new caravan that began in Honduras and quickly swelled to an estimated 2,000 people made its way toward Mexico on Tuesday, Mexicans who live along the border towns that will likely be most affected took to the Internet to lash out against another wave of migrants.

“Work? Yes, there might be work for people who actually want to work, not for the lazy bums looking for entitlements,” said one commenter, with the screen name Azucena Santos, in Spanish on a YouTube page belonging to Shialeweb, who was recording the caravan. “Poor Mexicans, what’s in store for you!”

Juan Palomina remarked: “Now look, let’s see if whacko [Mexican President} Lopez Obrador mobilizes the Marines and keeps these idiots from coming to Mexico. Give them enough to eat, at least.”

…By Tuesday afternoon, a caravan that started with about 500 people grew to about 2,000, according to a representative from the Honduras National Commission of Human Rights, which travels with the caravan.

Word of the caravan’s departure was out at least as far back as last week. The newspaper La Prensa, of Honduras, reported on Jan. 9 that a caravan was scheduled to leave from San Pedro Sula on Tuesday – though the first group left the evening before.

The newspaper attributed the information to the immigration advocacy group “Pueblos Sin Fronteras,” or “Communities Without Borders,” as well as to “Dignificacion Humana,” or “Dignifying Humans.” Both groups said that some 4,000 migrants in all would end up being part of the caravan.

The hostile social media comments on Tuesday are the latest reflection of tensions that have simmered since the caravans began last year. The tension is particularly prevalent in Mexican cities like Tijuana, where many of the migrants are being held in overcrowded shelters.

Some say the concerns by people in receiving communities are, even if pointed, understandable. But others say the migrants deserve compassion for trying to flee conditions – often life-threatening – they did not create, and cannot control.

The mix of exasperated migrants in overtaxed shelters and Mexican residents growing increasingly concerned about strains on communities has led to a number of clashes. In November, for instance, about 300 Tijuana residents held an anti-caravan demonstration at the same time Central American migrants were holding a protest. The dueling demonstrations ended in a huge fight, with police stepping in and escorting the migrants to various shelters.

On its website, the immigrant advocacy group “Consejo Noruego para los Refugiados,” which is based in Colombia and has various offices in Latin America, decried the backlash against the caravan on “growing xenophobia in the U.S., as well as in Mexico.”

“The journey north will be extremely dangerous and taxing for thousands of families from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala that will be part of the trips in 2019,” the group said. “Probably the obstacles will increase along the journey, given that there’s fatigue and frustration in the communities that have until now supported the caravans.”

…Meanwhile, on Tuesday, Honduran authorities arrested and detained Juan Carlos Molina, identified by La Prensa, the Honduran newspaper, as a coordinator of the latest caravan.

Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, which supports tighter enforcement, said the departure of another caravan was not surprising, considering indications there are individuals or organizations coordinating them. “Probably there are multiple parties involved, who have an interest in challenging the sovereign right of the United States to determine who can enter the country and under what circumstances,” he said.

“You have opportunists and you have people who, understandably, want to come to the United States,” he said, “It’s a situation that’s getting out of hand, and no one is doing anything about it other than an administration that trying to solve things through executive action.”

“Consejo Noruego para los Refugiados” translates into English as “Norwegian Council for Refugees”, otherwise known as the Norwegian Refugee Council.

Per their website www.nrc.no,

The Norwegian Refugee Council is an independent humanitarian organisation helping people forced to flee. We work in crises in 31 countries, where we help save lives and rebuild futures.

We deliver high-quality aid where needs are greatest. When we started our relief efforts after World War Two, humanitarian needs were critical. They still are – and we’re still there, protecting people forced to flee and supporting them as they build a new future. Today, we work in both new and protracted crises across 31 countries, where we provide camp management, food assistance, clean water, shelter, legal aid, and education.

We stand up for people forced to flee. NRC is a determined advocate for displaced people. When we witness injustices, we alert the world. We promote and defend displaced people’s rights and dignity in local communities, with national governments and in the international arena. NRC’s Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre in Geneva is a global leader in monitoring, reporting on and advocating for people displaced within their own country.

The Fox News article above refers to the NRC’s North Triangle Office, which is based in Columbia.

According to an article found on www.nrc.no, posted by the North Triangle Office,

A new caravan heading towards Mexico and the United States is reportedly set to leave San Pedro Sula in Honduras on Tuesday 15 January. “The large number of people expected to leave Central America is a true testimony to the desperate situation for children, women and men in this poor and violence affected region,” said Secretary General of the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), Jan Egeland. “Instead of talking about a crisis at the US-Mexican border, North Americans must wake up and address the real humanitarian crisis in Central America”.

The long walk north will be extremely dangerous and exhausting for the thousands of families from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala that will join the caravans planned in 2019. Obstacles on the way are likely to increase, as there is fatigue and frustration from communities who supported migrants during last year’s exodus. There is rising xenophobia in both the United States (US) and Mexico and increasingly tough border regulations in every country on the way.  

“Border controls, guards or walls will never stop people who are hunted by gang violence and flee for fear for their lives. Youth who have lost all hope for a better future in Central America will try repeatedly to reach a better life in the US, Canada or Mexico. To tackle the current crisis, the more affluent American nations need to understand their own neighborhood and invest much more in bringing hope, security and good governance for people who currently see no other option than to flee”, said Egeland, who visited Honduras in December.    

Well, gentle readers, I guess this answers the question as to “Who is organizing these caravans out of Honduras?”

It is already known that big Democrat Party Donors such as George Soros and Tom Steyer are providing monetary support. With this latest discovery, I would not be surprised if the United Nations is contributing a little “spending cash” to the “migrants” for their long journey to el Norte.

This whole mess keeps getting deeper and deeper, doesn’t it?

The only “New World Order” I’ve ever thought was real was the professional wrestling one which featured Hollywood Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, and Scott Hall, back in the days of WCW.

What we seem to have, either intentionally or unintentionally, are Progressives both within and outside our Sovereign Nation attempting to radically change America through the use of “migrant caravans” in an attempt to take advantage of America’s benevolence and largess.

With yesterday’s revelation that the Democrats remain unwilling to enter negotiations with President Trump about the construction of “barriers” along America’s Southern Border, and the facts concerning the Norwegian Refugee Council’s involvement in organizing these caravans, it truly appears that I and others were absolutely correct when we labeled the “migrant caravans” as an INVASION FORCE.

Mr. President…this IS a National Emergency.

BUILD THE WALL.

NOW!

The New Politboro – Dem Members of Congress Party in Puerto Rico with Lobbyists While Gov’t Remains Shutdown

January 14, 2019

menendez-puerto-rico-850x600

FoxNews.com reports that

Republican leaders slammed Democrats on Sunday following reports that around 30 Democratic members of Congress traveled to Puerto Rico this weekend to meet with lobbyists and see a special performance of the hit Broadway show “Hamilton.”

While the Democrats also planned on attending the Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PAC gathering in San Juan and met with Puerto Rican officials to discuss ongoing cleanup efforts from Hurricane Maria, Republicans were angered over images of their Democratic colleagues enjoying the island’s beaches as the partial government shutdown entered its third week.

“Democrats in Congress are so alarmed about federal workers not getting paid they’re partying on the beach instead of negotiating a compromise to reopen the government and secure the border,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted Sunday morning.

GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel also lambasted the Democrats in Puerto Rico for “hitting the beach and partying with lobbyists” in a tweet on Sunday.

“While [President Trump] is in DC working to resolve the government shutdown and secure our border, Democrats are hitting the beach and partying with lobbyists,” McDaniel tweeted.

Around 109 lobbyists and corporate executives are named in a memo welcoming the guests to the seaside resort in Puerto Rico. Among those attending are members of some from prominent Washington firms as well as representatives from R.J. Reynolds, Facebook, Comcast, Amazon, PhRMA, Microsoft, Intel, Verizon, and unions like the National Education Association.

“This year’s winter retreat promises to be our most widely attended yet with over 220 guests, including 39 Members of Congress and CHC BOLD PAC supporters expected to attend and participate!” a planning memo said.

A spokesman for the BOLD PAC — part of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus — would not tell the Examiner which members of Congress would be attending. But U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., was spotted on the beach Saturday, according to a FOX News producer.

The Dems’ visit comes amid the ongoing partial government shutdown that has left around 800,000 federal workers with no pay since it began Dec. 22, making it the longest government closure in U.S. history.

“I’m not even in government and I’d get killed in the press if I was on vacation right now,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted. “Why won’t they cover their democrat buddies lobbyist sponsored vacation in the islands???”

President Trump has refused to sign spending bills for nine of the 15 Cabinet-level departments until Congress approves his request for $5.7 billion in funding to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Democrats have refused.

Well, gosh.

It seems that the Democrats are not allowing their deep, heart-felt concern over the plight of 800,000 U.S. Government Workers whose paychecks will be delayed due to the ongoing government shutdown to get in the way of some serious partying…err…”business meetings’.

I can just picture them on the beach in Puerto Rico, tears running down their reddened cheeks.

Oh, wait….that’s just suntan lotion.

As you may know, the Politboro, was the huge Central Government in control of the Marxist Soviet Union. They were the reason that the Soviet Union eventually went belly up.

The problem with Marxist Theory remains that it is just a theory. It has never worked anywhere it has been tried…not even in Red China, a country which is becoming more capitalistic every day.

The reason for the failure of Marxism can not only just be found in the history of the Soviet Union. The Congressional members of the Far Left Democratic Party who are “living the good life” on their “business junket” to Puerto Rico are providing a prime example of why Marxism always fails.

The Politboro get richer and the “Proletariat” continue to suffer due to unchecked political power gained through greed and hypocrisy.

The Dems could not have sent out a plainer message if they had placed a Facebook Ad.

Like those whom they have modeled their political ideology after, this “New Politboro” cares about keeping and growing their political influence and wealth. They simply do not care who has to suffer in order for them to make a political point. Everything which they have been accusing President Trump in front of the television news cameras of has been a deflection to hide their own unbridled lust for power and their hypocrisy.

Those migrants from Central America, whom the Democrats want President Trump to allow to continue to illegally enter our country, are the Democrats’ “New Proletariat”, are unknowingly about to trade their servitude to corrupt politicians in the nations they are coming from for servitude to the Far Left Democratic Party of the United States of America.

Meanwhile, as those Democrat Congresscritters party down in Puerto Rico, Law Enforcement Officers and innocent civilians alike are being killed by illegal aliens already here, U.S. Government Workers are trying to figure out their household budgets, and the biggest caravan to date is forming in Honduras.

And to think…Nero just fiddled.

The Wall – Is President Trump a Modern-Day Nehemiah?

January 13, 2019

president-trump-delivers-a-message-from-the-southern-border

Earlier this month, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi called President Trump’s proposal to build a wall on the Southern Border of the United States of America “a waste of money” and “an immorality.”

Being a Christian American, my thoughts immediately went to the story of Nehemiah as found in the Old Testament and his rebuilding of the Wall around Jerusalem after the Babylon captivity of the Jewish people.

Upon re-reading the scripture, found in the book of Nehemiah, of course, I was struck by the parallels to what we are witnessing in this battle for the continued existence of America as we know it and our Sovereign Nation’s very soul.

After the Jews had returned to their homeland from their captivity, they started to rebuild. Even though Nehemiah had not yet returned to Jerusalem, he was concerned that with the wall around the city still being in shambles, the citizens were in danger from their enemies.

He prayed and asked God to help them rebuild the wall. (Nehemiah 1)

When Donald J. Trump announced his Presidential Campaign on June 6, 2015, he said,

“I will build a great wall ― and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me ―and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”

When Nehemiah returned to Jerusalem, he brought much needed resources including building materials, horsemen, and troops, courtesy of King Artexerxes, whom he had served as his cupbearer.

When he returned to Jerusalem, he shared his plan with the people. (Nehemiah 2)

On January 25, 2017, President Trump issued the “Executive Order: Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements”, in which Section 2 stated that one of its purposes was to

secure the southern border of the United States through the immediate construction of a physical wall on the southern border, monitored and supported by adequate personnel so as to prevent illegal immigration, drug and human trafficking, and acts of terrorism;

The rebuilding of the wall went really well until it was about halfway completed. Then, their enemies tried to advance on them in the middle of the night. After praying to God, they began working with a sword in one hand and a trowel in the other, with half of them working and half of them standing guard. This served to make their enemies think twice about attacking them. (Nehemiah 4)

On April 4, 2018, President Donald J. Trump sent National Guard Troops to America’s Southern Border as a precaution against hostile actions by the oncoming “migrant caravan”.

Those who were in charge of Jerusalem while the Jews were in captivity allowed the city to fall in disrepair. When the people started coming back, these bureaucrats made them buy their own possessions which they previously owned before their captivity.

In other words they were paying outrageous taxes on things which were theirs in the first place. Nehemiah put a stop to it and, in gratitude, the citizens of Jerusalem appointed him Governor of the city, a position which he held for 12 years. (Chapter 5)

American Businessman and Entrepreneur Donald J. Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States of America after promising during his campaign to “Make America Great Again” after years of over-taxation and burdensome restrictions placed on American Business during the 8-year Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.

The enemies of Israel asked to meet with Nehemiah. However, he refused to, knowing that they wanted to distract him from finishing the work of securing the safety of his people. After several attempts to arrange a meeting, Israel’s enemies got so frustrated that they told Nehemiah that he was only building the wall for the purpose of making himself look good and furthering his “career”.

He ignored Israel’s enemies and the Israelites finished the wall in 52 days. (Chapter 6)

The Congressional Leaders of the Democratic Party, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, continue to insist that President Trump go ahead and end the 25% Government Shutdown without the funding to build a wall on America’s Southern Border, assuring the president that “we’ll get to it in Congress”, the same lie which the Democratic Leaders of Congress at the time told President Ronald Reagan when he granted amnesty to thousands of illegal aliens in the Immigration and Border Control Act of 1986.

After the wall was built, there were still very few people living in the city. In order to keep the city safe so that they could build houses and bring in more families, Nehemiah told them not to open the gates until the sun was high in the sky and when they did that there should be guards posted at all times. (Nehemiah 7)

Per President Trump, other aspects of Border Security will be enhanced along with the building of the wall.

Now, I am not saying that President Trump is on “a mission from God”.

However, five days ago in an Address to the Nation on National Security, he said,

For those who refuse to compromise in the name of in the name of border security, I would ask, imagine if it was your child, your husband or your wife whose life was so cruelly shattered and totally broken. To every member of Congress, pass a bill that ends this crisis. To every citizen, call Congress and tell them to finally, after all of these decades, secure our border. This is a choice between right and wrong, justice and injustice. This is about whether we fulfill our sacred duty to the American citizens we serve. When I took the oath of office, I swore to protect our country. And that is what I will always do so help me God.

And, that’s good enough for me.

God bless America, land that I love.

Stand beside her and guide her

Through the night with The Light from above.

FBI Opened Secret Investigation of Trump After Comey’s Firing Claiming It Was Because of “Russian Collusion”…Yeah, Right

January 12, 2019

untitled (237)

For those of you out there who have doubted the existence of “Deep State Operatives” within the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation…

The New York Times reports that

In the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests, according to former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the investigation.

The inquiry carried explosive implications. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security. Agents also sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence.

The investigation the F.B.I. opened into Mr. Trump also had a criminal aspect, which has long been publicly known: whether his firing of Mr. Comey constituted obstruction of justice.

Agents and senior F.B.I. officials had grown suspicious of Mr. Trump’s ties to Russia during the 2016 campaign but held off on opening an investigation into him, the people said, in part because they were uncertain how to proceed with an inquiry of such sensitivity and magnitude. But the president’s activities before and after Mr. Comey’s firing in May 2017, particularly two instances in which Mr. Trump tied the Comey dismissal to the Russia investigation, helped prompt the counterintelligence aspect of the inquiry, the people said.

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, took over the inquiry into Mr. Trump when he was appointed, days after F.B.I. officials opened it. That inquiry is part of Mr. Mueller’s broader examination of how Russian operatives interfered in the 2016 election and whether any Trump associates conspired with them. It is unclear whether Mr. Mueller is still pursuing the counterintelligence matter, and some former law enforcement officials outside the investigation have questioned whether agents overstepped in opening it.

The criminal and counterintelligence elements were coupled together into one investigation, former law enforcement officials said in interviews in recent weeks, because if Mr. Trump had ousted the head of the F.B.I. to impede or even end the Russia investigation, that was both a possible crime and a national security concern. The F.B.I.’s counterintelligence division handles national security matters.

If the president had fired Mr. Comey to stop the Russia investigation, the action would have been a national security issue because it naturally would have hurt the bureau’s effort to learn how Moscow interfered in the 2016 election and whether any Americans were involved, according to James A. Baker, who served as F.B.I. general counsel until late 2017. He privately testified in October before House investigators who were examining the F.B.I.’s handling of the full Russia inquiry.

Following President Trump’s firing of James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, the bureau grew increasingly concerned about whether the president’s actions constituted anti-American activity. “Not only would it be an issue of obstructing an investigation, but the obstruction itself would hurt our ability to figure out what the Russians had done, and that is what would be the threat to national security,” Mr. Baker said in his testimony, portions of which were read to The New York Times. Mr. Baker did not explicitly acknowledge the existence of the investigation of Mr. Trump to congressional investigators.

No evidence has emerged publicly that Mr. Trump was secretly in contact with or took direction from Russian government officials. An F.B.I. spokeswoman and a spokesman for the special counsel’s office both declined to comment.

Rudolph W. Giuliani, a lawyer for the president, sought to play down the significance of the investigation. “The fact that it goes back a year and a half and nothing came of it that showed a breach of national security means they found nothing,” Mr. Giuliani said on Friday, though he acknowledged that he had no insight into the inquiry.

The cloud of the Russia investigation has hung over Mr. Trump since even before he took office, though he has long vigorously denied any illicit connection to Moscow. The obstruction inquiry, revealed by The Washington Post a few weeks after Mr. Mueller was appointed, represented a direct threat that he was unable to simply brush off as an overzealous examination of a handful of advisers. But few details have been made public about the counterintelligence aspect of the investigation.

The decision to investigate Mr. Trump himself was an aggressive move by F.B.I. officials who were confronting the chaotic aftermath of the firing of Mr. Comey and enduring the president’s verbal assaults on the Russia investigation as a “witch hunt.”

If all of this is indeed true, there could be no greater evidence of the existence of covert Deep State Operatives within the DOJ and the FBI.

Being upset over the firing of a bureaucratic prima donna like James Comey is no reason to launch a covert investigation against a sitting President when no proof of the allegations of “Russian Colluding” existed. It fact, they still do not exist to this very day.

If no evidence of Russian Collusion existed at the time, how could President Trumps firing of James Comey , something well within his rights as the President of the United States of America, be a “national security concern”?

The spider’s web of political intrigue, covert operations to bring down a sitting president, and the Machiavellian machinations behind it all certainly gets more and more convoluted and revolting, doesn’t it, gentle readers?

In a part of the above article which I did not post, the writers said that Christopher Steele “had compiled memos in mid-2016 containing unsubstantiated claims that Russian officials tried to obtain influence over Mr. Trump by preparing to blackmail and bribe him.”

They also quoted Lisa Page, Former FBI Bureau Lawyer and love of disgraced Former FBI Agent Peter Strok, who told House of Representative Investigators,

“In the Russian Federation and in President Putin himself, you have an individual whose aim is to disrupt the Western alliance and whose aim is to make Western democracy more fractious in order to weaken our ability, America’s ability and the West’s ability to spread our democratic ideals. That’s the goal, to make us less of a moral authority to spread democratic values.”

That trollop and the rest of those involved in this frame up and resulting Witch Hunt, wouldn’t know “Democratic Values” if they French-kissed them.

If the long and winding trail which includes the Carter Page FISA Memo on up to this secret investigation and the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller is followed back long enough and strongly enough, I firmly believe that it will lead back to Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Former President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

The whole Deep State Operation put into motion by government agents and bureaucrats loyal to Obama and Clinton resembles a spider’s web in its intricacy, with, like a spider’s, a single signaling line leading back to the white House and President Barack Hussein Obama, who was attempting to clear a pathway to the Presidency for the Black Widow herself, the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton.

And, the Professional Bureaucrats in the Hierarchy of the Department of Justice and the FBI who were loyal to her and President Barack Hussein Obama were more than willing to help.

President Ronald Reagan used to say that the nine words that you never want to hear were

I’m from the Government and I’m here to help.

Now, don’t get me wrong. the rank and file of the FBI is composed of many stellar, heroic agents, who love this country and work sacrificially every day, serving with honor.

The hierarchy is another matter entirely, as has been proven repeatedly since this Deep State “Silent Coup” Attempt was first discovered.

Being political appointees holding political opinions, while carrying political obligations to a certain political party, never bodes well in a position of legal authority.

Add into that mix an extra-marital affair between these bureaucrats and, to paraphrase, “the affairs of mice and men (and agents) will indeed go awry”.

The Professional Bureaucrats in the DOJ and the FBI knew from the get-go if the FISA Documents were ever made public, the following backlash by the American public would blow their clandestine operation against the candidacy and the presidency of Donald J. Trump wide open and put an end to the sham of an investigation into Trump’s “Russian Collusion” that should have never happened.

Since the kinky days of J. Edgar Hoover, the hierarchy of the FBI have run clandestine investigations of public figures, both political and cultural leaders.

J. Edgar did it to hold onto his office and to have political leverage against his enemies, as he had skeletons in his own closet…and dresses, too.

But, I digress.

In this case however, the hierarchy of the FBI did it to circumvent the will of the American People and to install Hillary Clinton as the 45th President, thus protecting the status quo in the Halls of Power in Washington, DC.

When that didn’t happen, they determined to bring President Trump down, by any means necessary, including creating a fake story of Russian Collusion.

Thanks to the two agents who decided to do the Extramarital Mattress Mambo and text each other thousands of times, whom I mentioned earlier in this post, written evidence was leaked out which piqued the interest of average Americans as to what in the world was going on in the Halls of Power during the Obama Administration.

It appeared to be something out of a Tom Clancy Novel.

However, even Tom Clancy could not have written a plot by the Deep State to take out an opposing Political Party’s Presidential Candidate and then a sitting president in such a convoluted manner as America has witnessed.

My late Former Father-in-law was a retired Police Lieutenant, who had worked with the FBI on several high-profile cases.

To say that he wasn’t a fan would be an understatement.

According to him, the letters FBI stood for “F—ing Bunch of Idiots”.

In the case of the FBI Hierarchy’s Deep State Operatives, and their blatant clandestine servitude to the Former Administration and members of the Democratic Party and their ongoing mission to install a Democrat Dynasty in the White House by circumventing not only the will of the American People but the Constitution, as well, darned if he wasn’t right.

Trump to Hannity – “We have the Absolute Right to Declare a National Emergency” He’s Right!

January 11, 2019

trumpmcallenvisit_1547162708076.png_67124880_ver1.0_1280_720

FoxNews.com reports that

President Donald Trump told Fox News on Thursday that he has “the absolute right to declare a national emergency” if he can’t reach an agreement with congressional Democrats to provide funding for his promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“The law is very clear. I mean, we have the absolute right to declare a national emergency,” Trump told Sean Hannity in an exclusive interview. “This is a national emergency, if you look what’s happening.”

Trump did not lay out a specific timetable for when he might take such a step, saying: “I think we’re going to see what happens over the next few days.” However, he appeared to hold out hope for making a deal to secure wall funding and fully reopen the government.

“We should be able to make a deal with Congress,” the president said. “If you look, Democrats, in Congress, especially the new ones coming in, are starting to say, ‘Wait a minute, we can’t win this battle with Trump, because of the fact that it’s just common sense. How can we say that a wall doesn’t work?’”

The president spoke to Fox News on the banks of the Rio Grande, where he traveled to argue his claim that a barrier would deter drug and human trafficking into the United States.

“Death is pouring through,” Trump said. “We have crime and death and it’s not just at the border. They get through the border and they go and filter into the country and you have MS-13 gangs in places like Los Angeles and you have gangs all over Long Island, which we’re knocking the hell out of. There should be no reason for us to have to do this. They shouldn’t be allowed in and if we had the barrier, they wouldn’t be allowed in.”

The president said a wall would be “virtually a hundred percent effective and [House Speaker] Nancy [Pelosi] and [Senate Democratic Leader] Chuck [Schumer] know that, but it’s politics. It’s about the 2020 campaign, it’s about running for president. That’s what they’re doing. They’re already doing it. It’s a shame. They’ve got to put the country first.”

Democrats repeatedly have refused to approve any legislation to fund the wall. The standoff led to the partial government shutdown, which is set to hit the three-week mark Friday.

“Everyone wants us to win this battle,” Trump said. “It’s common sense … Look, we’re not going anywhere. We’re not changing our mind because there’s nothing to change your mind about. The wall works [and] if we don’t have a steel or concrete barrier, we’re all wasting a lot of time.”

So, what law gives President Trump “the right to declare a national emergency”?

Per psmag.com,

In 1976, Congress passed the National Emergencies Act, codifying—without truly restricting—this authority. The law gives a president the power to declare a national emergency when she or he wishes. Under the act, an emergency lapses after a year, unless it’s renewed—and it often is.

President Jimmy Carter declared the first national emergency under the NEA in 1979, with an order blocking Iranian government property from entering the U.S. in response to the Iran hostage crisis. Carter determined that this situation, like the many to follow it, met the criteria of being “an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security.”

Since that first order in 1979, American presidents have declared 58 national emergencies. According to the Brennan Center’s running count, 31 of these are still in effect—including the ban on Iranian property, which was extended in November of 2018. In other words, the country has been in some state of emergency for almost four decades.

These 58 national emergencies include declarations over dealings with Yemen, Syria, and North Korea, among others; sanctions against an array of terrorist groups, including one after 9/11; and various orders concerning nuclear weapons, diamonds imported from Sierra Leone, and the 2009 swine flu epidemic. Most recently, George W. Bush declared 13 and Barack Obama 12, most of which are still in effect, according to CNN.

I hope that it is not lost on you, gentle readers, that I used a Liberal source to derive the information above.

Yesterday morning, I was watching Fox News and saw Democrat after Democrat insist that the Crisis on our Southern Border is not a “national emergency”.

If millions upon millions of illegal aliens breaking into our Sovereign Nation, with a percentage of them killing and assaulting Americans, bringing illegal dangerous drugs such as heroin over the Southern Border, and dealing in human trafficking as well, is not a “national emergency”, then I want to know what is.

Pelosi having a hangnail?

Through all of the ongoing Democratic temper tantrum over this issue, I have not heard them bring up Sheriff’s Deputy Ronil Singh, his widow, or his 5 month old who will never get to know his Daddy, who gave his life in service to a country which he came to legally and loved.

All I hear from the Democrats, even those I work with at my paying gig, is “those poor, poor, government workers…whatever will they do?”.

Not a peep from them about the Angel Moms and Dads who are left behind to grieve their children murdered by barbarians who were not supposed to be in America in the first place.

Whether San Fan Nan, Chuck U. Schumer and the rest of “the smartest people in the room” decide to “negotiate” or not is up to them. The president is not going to budge.

He knows what is at stake and he knows who elected him and why.

According to Jim Hoft of GatewayPundit.com, some of the Democrats are breaking ranks with their leaders in favor of a wall.

The Democrats had better wake up and realize exactly how clueless and insensitive they appear to the American Public.

They are supposed to be serving Americans…not illegal aliens, otherwise known as “Future Democratic Voters”.

With or without them, the President of the United States of America is going to build a wall along our Southern Border.

Unlike the Democrats, he takes his promises seriously.

So help him God.

Until He Comes,

Trump Walks Out of Shutdown Meeting, Refuses to Play the Democrats’ Game

January 10, 2019

Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Mitch McConnell, John Thune, John Barrasso, Roy Blunt

FoxNews.com reported that

President Trump walked out of a White House meeting with congressional leaders Wednesday afternoon over the partial government shutdown after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi again rejected supporting new funding for a border wall, according to those in the meeting.

Speaking to reporters after the brief session, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said the “president just got up and walked out.”

“He asked Speaker Pelosi, ‘will you agree to my wall?’ She said no. And he just got up, and said, ‘Well we’ve got nothing to discuss,'” Schumer said.

The president, in a tweet, called the meeting “a total waste of time” and appeared to confirm that he left after Pelosi’s answer.

“I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier? Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!” Trump tweeted.

Pelosi, D-Calif., said after the meeting that the president was “petulant.” Schumer said Trump slammed his hand on a table in frustration, but Vice President Mike Pence and other Republicans, speaking to reporters afterward, denied that happened.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said the president was willing to make a deal in the meeting.

“I just listened to Senator Schumer,” McCarthy, a California Republican, said. “I know he complained the time that you had cameras in the meeting. I think we need to bring them back. Because what he described the meeting to be is totally different than what took place.”

The meeting in the Situation Room on Wednesday afternoon came ahead of Trump’s planned trip to the Texas-Mexico border on Thursday. Earlier, the president traveled to Capitol Hill to meet with Senate Republicans, saying afterward, “We have a very unified party.”

Still, a growing number of moderate Republicans – like Susan Collins of Maine and Cory Gardner of Colorado — have appeared uncomfortable with the toll the partial shutdown is taking.

Trump has said he might declare a national emergency and try to authorize the wall on his own if Congress won’t approve the $5.7 billion he’s asking.

“I think we might work a deal, and if we don’t I might go that route,” he said.

Past meetings with Democrats have resulted in both sides digging in, with Trump insisting on nearly $6 billion for a border wall and Democrats saying they won’t entertain the discussion until Congress passes and Trump signs a package re-opening shuttered federal agencies.

The president’s prime-time address on Tuesday night saw both camps drifting even further apart, with Trump declaring a “humanitarian and security crisis” and vowing to protect America, “so help me God” – and Democratic congressional leaders saying Trump was working to “manufacture a crisis, stoke fear and divert attention from the turmoil in his administration.”

How the two sides will bridge this difference – and how long they will resist a compromise – has been unclear.

President Trump was exactly right to walk out of that meeting.

If President Ronald Reagan had walked out on the Democrats when they placed him in the same sort of situation, we would not be dealing with the present Border Crisis.

The Democrat Majority Congress promised President Reagan that they would help him build a wall on our Southern Border if he granted mass amnesty to the illegal aliens living in our Sovereign Nation.

They lied.

Per Washington Examiner.com,

The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 allowed any illegal immigrants who had been in the U.S. since 1982 to receive temporary legal status and eventually become eligible for green cards if they learned English.The legislation also attempted to boost border security by increasing funding for the Immigration and Naturalization Service and the U.S. Border Patrol, although it did not call for a border wall. The measure also sought to crack down on illegal immigration by barring employers from knowingly hiring illegal immigrants.

Since 1986, the number of illegal immigrants in the U.S. has more than doubled from approximately 5 million to approximately 10.7 million as of 2016, Pew Research Center reports.

Just as Americans are witnessing now, Congressional Democrats were playing a manipulative game with our National Security.

Even back then, they were more concerned about creating new Democratic Voters to ensure their political power than they were about protecting American Citizens from foreigners invading our country by illegally crossing our Southern Border.

The last bipartisan U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform wrangled with the hot topic of Illegal Immigration for six years. The Commission’s initial recommendations were released in 1995, and were endorsed by President Bill Clinton. The final report was presented to Congress in 1997.

President Clinton appointed former congresswoman and Democratic icon Barbara Jordan as its chair. Jordan came from humble beginnings to become a lawyer and the first Southern black woman elected to the House of Representatives. A DEMOCRAT, she was a leader in the civil rights movement, a professor of ethics, a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and a world-class orator (two of her speeches are considered among the greatest of the 20th century). Her appointment gave the commission instant credibility. According to Jordan, she believed her responsibility as the head of the commission was to restore credibility to the U.S. immigration system. On the issue of illegal immigration, Jordan was very clear and succinct:

Unlawful immigration is unacceptable. Those who should not be here will be required to leave.

I wonder what Rep. Jordan would think of her beloved Democratic Party, now that they have embraced and are welcoming the same illegality, which she was so clear about ?

And, how would she feel about the fact that innocent Americans are being murdered by these uninvited guests?

I believe that she would stand with President Trump as the overwhelming majority of average Americans between the coasts do.

Stay Strong, Mr. President.

Trump’s National Security Speech and the Schumer/Pelosi Rebuttal – “A Choice Between Right and Wrong”

January 9, 2019

09dc-trumptranscript-facebookjumbo

For those who refuse to compromise in the name of in the name of border security, I would ask, imagine if it was your child, your husband or your wife whose life was so cruelly shattered and totally broken. To every member of Congress, pass a bill that ends this crisis. To every citizen, call Congress and tell them to finally, after all of these decades, secure our border. This is a choice between right and wrong, justice and injustice. This is about whether we fulfill our sacred duty to the American citizens we serve. When I took the oath of office, I swore to protect our country. And that is what I will always do so help me God.- President Donald J. Trump, Address to the Nation, 1/8/19

Last night, the 45th President of the United States of America delivered an address to the nation concerning the National Security and Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border.

During his presentation, President Trump was factual, focused, passionate, and presidential as he masterfully laid out the case for securing our border, including provided the reasoning for the $5.6 billion which he is asking for in order to erect a steel barrier to help end the drug trafficking, human trafficking, and breaking and entering of our Sovereign Nation by illegal aliens, some of whom possess criminal records as evidenced by the 266,000 whom ICE Agents have arrested. Others have come into our country and murdered 4,000 of our citizens, committing 100,000 assaults and 30,000 sex crimes.

He also pointed out that, in the past, Democrats have supported building a wall on the Southern Border.

2006 – The New York Times

WASHINGTON, Sept. 29 — The Senate on Friday approved the building of 700 miles of fence along the nation’s southwestern border, fulfilling a demand by conservative Republicans to take steps to slow the flow of illegal immigrants before exploring broader changes to immigration law.

The Senate vote, 80 to 19, came as lawmakers finished a batch of legislation before heading home to campaign.

2013 – Politico.com

The Senate on Thursday passed the most monumental overhaul of U.S. immigration laws in a generation, which would clear the way for millions of undocumented residents to have a chance at citizenship, attract workers from all over the world and devote unprecedented resources for security along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The vote was 68-32. Fourteen Republicans crossed the aisle to vote with all Democrats in favor. Thursday’s vote now puts the onus of immigration reform on the Republican-led House, where leaders have been resistant to the Senate legislation.

“The strong bipartisan vote we took is going to send a message across the country, it’s going to send a message to the other end of the Capitol as well,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), the leader of the so-called Gang of Eight. “The bill has generated a level of support that we believe will be impossible for the House to ignore.

Schumer was wrong. The bill did not make it through the House of Representatives.

After the president spoke last night, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer responded in what came off as desperate, immature, and out-of-touch attempt at a rebuttal on behalf of the Far Left Democratic Party.

Quite Frankly, they sounded more concerned about the inconvenience which delayed paychecks were causing 800,00 Government Workers than they were about the safety of American Citizens, calling all of the violence and human suffering caused by an unsecured Southern Border a “manufactured crisis”, accusing President Trump of “misinformation” and “malice”.

The two Democratic Leaders, giving the appearance of a couple of stereotypical clueless bureaucrats on auto pilot, insisted that the president end the shutdown first and then “we can work to resolve our differences over border security”.

Priorities. Priorities.

Isn’t that the same sort of line that the Democrats handed President Reagan when they got him to bestow amnesty on thousands of illegal aliens back in the day?

“I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today” – Wimpy

Last night’s Democratic Rebuttal was the biggest exercise in hypocrisy since Obama used the horrible mass murder in Sandy Hook to call for gun control, using children as stage props.

Dems in walled mansions shouldn’t throw stones.

As the president so eloquently put it last night,

Some have suggested a barrier is immoral. Then why do wealthy politicians build walls, fences and gates around their homes? They don’t build walls because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside. The only thing that is immoral is for the politicians to do nothing and continue to allow more innocent people to be so horribly victimized.

Indeed.

Schumer and Pelosi Demand Equal Air Time After Trump’s Address to the Nation Tonight…He’s the President…You’re Not

January 8, 2019

FoxNews.com reports that

Democratic leaders on Monday night called for equal airtime in response to President Donald Trump’s primetime address to the nation on southern border security scheduled for Tuesday evening.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., argued that since Trump’s speech will be broadcast, the other side of the aisle should have their fair share of broadcast time, too.

“Now that the television networks have decided to air the President’s address, which if his past statements are any indication will be full of malice and misinformation, Democrats must immediately be given equal airtime,” they said in a statement.

Trump said he’ll be talking at 9 p.m. ET about the U.S.-Mexico border — the fight over which sparked the partial government shutdown. The address will be carried live by ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox Broadcasting, Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, MSNBC and NBC.

Pelosi and Schumer said that Democrats “and an increasing number of Republicans in Congress” have urged Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to “re-open the government while Congress debates the President’s expensive and ineffective wall.”

The government is on day 16 of the partial shutdown — the second-longest in history slated to become the longest this weekend.

Trump told congressional Democratic leaders during a meeting on Friday that he was willing to keep the government shutdown for as long as necessary — possibly months or even years — in order to get the border funding he wants.

After a weekend filled with meetings about the shutdown, the president moved to call for a steel wall, rather than a concrete barrier, at the southern border. Trump framed the pitch for a steel wall as a concession to Democrats to move negotiations along, although they do not appear moved by the president’s message.

“President Trump keeps rejecting the bipartisan House-passed bills, which have already received strong bipartisan support in the Senate, to re-open the government,” Pelosi and Schumer’s statement read. “Instead, he is still demanding that American taxpayers pay at least $5.7 billion for his wall, which can’t pass either chamber of Congress and of course Mexico is not paying for.”

Demanding equal time?

The Democrats must be awfully nervous.

I performed an Internet search after reading the above article. The only times that I found where the opposition party was given air time after a Presidential Address was after every year’s State of the Union Address by the sitting President.

And, tonight’s Address to the Nation will not be made in front of Congress.

It will made in front of the people they are supposed to be answering to…American Citizens.

Supposedly, the Dems want equal air time to “combat lies”.

The only lying that has been going on concerning what is happening at the border has been coming from them.

Heck, they wouldn’t even acknowledge the murder of Sheriff Deputy Ronil Singh by an illegal alien.

Yes, I called that murderer an “illegal alien”.

The Democrats want equal air time so that they can continue to lie to the American people concerning the make-up of the Migrant Caravans and who is sponsoring them.

These caravans are not some sort of spontaneous cry for help. They are a purposeful invasion of our Sovereign Nation, being funded by a very familiar name.

Per OneNewsNow.com,

Leftist billionaire George Soros is funding the well-organized anti-Trump migrant caravan invasion from Central America that has been hitting the United States-Mexico border in defiance of immigration enforcement.

“The caravan is organized by a group called Pueblo Sin Fronteras, [b]ut the effort is supported by the coalition CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project, which includes Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLIN), the American Immigration Council (AIC), the Refugee and Immigration Center for Education and Legal Services (RICELS) and the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) – thus the acronym CARA,” WND reported. “At least three of the four groups are funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.”

Former AILA President Victor Nieblas Pradas is behind the Soros-led caravans and contends that detaining mothers and their children who break into the U.S. illegally is inhumane, unfair and unjust.

“There is simply no humane way to detain families,” Pradis declared in an AILA announcement. “Asylum seeking families should be given due process, not expedited removal – and the end of the road must be the end of family detention entirely.”

Don’t be surprised if Chuck and Nancy do coerce someone to grant them air time tonight, that they try to bring “morality” into their argument for open borders, alluding that it is the “Christian” thing to do without saying the “C” word which is anathema to the Far Left Democratic Party.

Americans are the most compassionate people in the world.

Attached to the church I attend, is an independently-run Food Bank which feeds 2,000 people per month while assisting them in finding the state services that they need. It is manned by a volunteer staff of members from my church and other denominations in the community.

That being said, while we are told to be compassionate, we are also told to be “wise as serpents”.

While we are instructed in the Old Testament to “treat foreigners nicely”, there is no scripture in the Old or New Testament which instructs us to automatically make strangers citizens of our country. It is quite a stretch to use the Bible to make a case to “abolish all borders”.

However, getting back to the “wise as serpents” quote, I believe as a Christian that my faith in the Triune God does not require me to be naïve.

One would have to be a fool to intentionally bring in thousands of people into our “home” when there have already been dangerous criminals, including those with weapons meant to be used against us, found within their ranks.

President Trump is NOT disobeying God by enforcing our immigration laws and protecting our Sovereignty and our citizenry. Those who are attempting to cross our borders illegally are the ones who are in the wrong here.

And, Sheriff’s Deputy Ronil Singh, Katie Steinle, and all the other Americans who have been killed by illegal aliens would agree…if they were here to do so.
