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.

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.

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.

Dems Refuse to Listen to Homeland Security Sec Nielsen at WH Meeting, Want to Re-open Gov’t Without Wall

January 3, 2019

Nancy Pelosi
Chuck Schumer

The President was a prophet.

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump has called for congressional leaders to return to the White House on Friday, top Republicans said shortly after a hotly anticipated, contentious closed-door meeting on border security in the Situation Room concluded Wednesday afternoon.

The sit-down apparently ended without any progress made in resolving the ongoing partial federal government shutdown that has persisted for 12 days, and several senior GOP officials said Democrats didn’t seem interested in listening to what Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen had to say.

A source inside the Situation Room told Fox News that it was the consensus of all participants that House Democrats would be able to negotiate once House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi is elected speaker of the House on Thursday, as expected. 60 votes in the Senate are needed to pass a spending bill and reopen the government.

A White House official separately told Fox News that Trump began the meeting and then turned it over to Nielsen to provide information on the border. Just five or six seconds into the briefing, the official said, Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer leaned over to Pelosi and suggested she interrupt Nielsen.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and top House Republicans Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and Steve Scalise, R-La., also attended the meeting in the high-security enclave of the White House, which typically is used to handle sensitive information. The location meant that the conversation was not televised, unlike the volatile sitdown during which Democratic leaders talked back to Trump last month.

“We do have a crisis on the border right now. We had a violent mob rush yesterday — we had a challenge there,” McCarthy said outside the White House after the meeting, referring to the 150 migrants who were repelled by tear gas on New Year’s Day at the southern border. “The president has asked us to come back Friday, after the [House] leadership races, to try to get this all done.”

“I”m a little disappointed with, I would say, some on the other side,” McCarthy continued. “Once the secretary [of Homeland Security] started, Senator Schumer interrupted her, and they really didn’t want to hear it.”

Instead, McCarthy said, Democrats wanted to push their proposed spending bill without funding for the president’s proposed border wall.

“Democrats in the room either don’t care that there is a humanitarian crisis on the border or just prefer ignorance,” a Homeland Security spokesperson told Fox News late Wednesday. “It was incredibly disheartening that they don’t want to know the facts when making policy.”

When I first read this story, my initial reaction was not surprise at Pelosi and Schumer’s behavior….it was anger.

And, as I sat there thinking about it…my anger grew.

Then, I decided to go to San Fran Nan’s official Twitter feed, where I read the following…

It was while perusing her “official” tweets that I realized something:

She did not even acknowledge the murder by an illegal immigrant on that same Holy Night of Sheriff’s Deputy Ronil Singh, a proud American and legal immigrant, who came here to serve his fellow Americans, a job which she is supposed to be doing in Washington, D.C.

Pelosi and Schumer’s behavior during their recent meetings concerning the Government Shutdown with the President of the United States of America has been far less than congenial, comprising, or professional.

They act as if they exist in another world, one in which their miserable candidate, Hillary Clinton, actually won the 2016 Presidential Election, giving them the mandate to do whatever they want, even to the point of allowing thousands of illegal aliens to enter our country for the purpose of “radically changing” America into something that our Founders never meant for it to be.

In the shallow minds of Schumer, Pelosi, and their fellow Democrats, the word “compromise” means having things their way. In this case, ending the Government Shutdown without building a wall on our Southern Border.

For the Democrats, it is a matter of survival, as they have chosen to embrace Marxism in the form of “Democratic Socialism”, a political theory which has not worked in reality anywhere it has been tried.

Average Americans living between the coasts will never accept a huge central government which limits them to being the Proletariat, taking away their opportunities for “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. Therefore, the Democrats must create a new voter base who will.

If our immigration laws are upheld and enforced and a wall is built on our Southern Border, that will never happen. Especially after average Americans watch Pelosi and her fellow travelers attempt to undo the economic progress of the last two years under President Trump between now and the 2020 Presidential Election.

To be blunt, Pelosi, Schumer, and the Far Left Democratic Party care more about those in the “Migrant Caravans” attempting to invade our Sovereign Nation at our Southern Border than they do about us “Deplorables”, i.e., average Americans living in America’s Heartland.

For them, it is a matter of political expediency…and survival as a political party.

Stay strong and stand firm, Mr. President…for America’s sake.

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“No Nuke” McConnell Refuses to Fund Wall with Simple Majority Vote

December 22, 2018

mitch-mcconnell-bannon-political-genius-1513960058

Breitbart.com reports that

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) rejected President Donald Trump’s call to partially fund the border wall with a simple majority vote on Friday, suggesting not enough Senate Republicans support the measure.

President Trump called on McConnell to use the “nuclear option,” or switch to a simple majority vote in the Senate, to pass the continuing resolution (CR) that would partially fund the border wall. The House passed a CR last night that would fund $5.7 billion in border security.

“Mitch, use the Nuclear Option and get it done!” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Our Country is counting on you!”

McConnell spokesman David Popp released a statement on Friday, contending that the Majority Leader continues to oppose going to a simple majority, or 51 votes, to partially fund the border wall. Popp said not enough Senate Republicans support the measure.

Popp said:

“The Leader has said for years that the votes are not there in the Conference to use the nuclear option. Just this morning, several senators put out statements confirming their opposition, and confirming that there is not a majority in the conference to go down that road.”

Retiring Sens. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and Lamar Alexander (R-TN) all released statements on Friday, opposing the nuclear option to fund the wall.

“We have rules to follow. I want to put a stop to this practice of the Senate breaking its rules to change its rules,” Alexander said. “I will not vote to turn the Senate into a rule-breaking institution, and I hope that my colleagues will not.”

Not all Senate Republicans agree with the three retiring GOP lawmakers.

Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) tweeted after the House passed its spending bill with wall funding that the Senate can do the same if it went to a simple majority. Daines noted that McConnell went “nuclear” to confirm judges through Congress’ upper chamber.

“House just passed a bill that fully funds government and enables @realDonaldTrump to secure our border/build the wall. Senate can do same by eliminating the filibuster,” Daines charged. “51 votes, same as we do for judges!”

Conservative Review senior editor Daniel Horowitz suggested that Republicans can use arcane parliamentary procedures in the Senate to pass border wall funding with a simple majority, skipping the option of entirely “going nuclear.”

Horowitz said that Republicans can exploit Senate Rule XIX, otherwise known as the “the two-speech rule,” which would prevent individual senators from speaking “more than twice upon any one question in debate on the same legislative day.” In other words, this would force Democrats to continually filibuster throughout the same “legislative day” and eventually exhaust Senate Democrats.

…The editor said that these sort of hardball tactics enabled Democrats to pass the civil rights bills in the 1960’s.

Horowitz added, “Republicans with convictions should recognize that having sovereign borders is the civil rights issue for all Americans, rooted in the entire social compact underpinning our federal government.”

“Trump must remember that his entire presidency is on the line. This is his moment,” Horowitz charged. “He must use the bully pulpit and every constitutional tool at his disposal to finally force a national debate over the integrity of our own borders.”

That’s a good suggestion.

I have one, also.

“No Nuke” McConnell needs to start caring more about the feelings of the Deplorables than those of the Senate Democrats.

What we are witnessing, gentle readers, bears witness to the fact that the Professional Politicians representing the Republican Party and more importantly, the American Citizenry, in the Senate care more about playing pussy-foot with their fellow Professional Politicians in the Democratic Party than they do about our Nation’s Sovereignty.

As was demonstrated throughout the Republican Primaries and at the 2016 National Convention, there is a contingency of the Republican Hierarchy, as exemplified by the late John McCain, who seem to value their friendship with those “across the aisle” from them more than the opinions of “the folks back home”.

What “No Nuke” McConnell and the rest of the Vichy Republicans need to understand is that if they intentionally keep President Trump from fulfilling his promise of a wall across our Southern Border, not only will the Congressional phone lines burn up, the switchboard itself will implode.

The average Americans between the coasts who voted Trump into the Oval Office still stand with him, as exhibited by the overflow crowds at the MAGA Rallies during the Midterms.

The Republican Senators and Representatives, too, for that matter, who have buttered their bread in DC by being wishy-washy are all choosing to retire and leave town, rather than be run over by the Trump Train.

The Presidential Election of 2016 was not only a referendum on business as usual in DC’s Halls of Power, it could very well be a portent of things to come for “No Nuke” McConnell and the rest of the “Beltway Boys” if they screw the Deplorables (i.e., average Americans living in America’s Heartland) by not funding the wall on the Southern Border.

Let’s face it…if the Senate Republicans are going to act like a bunch of Democrats…why should they keep their jobs?

FUND THE WALL.

BUILD THE WALL.

Schumer and Pelosi Upset over Possible Shutdown Say Trump Throwing “Temper Tantrum”…Irony is Embarrassed

December 21, 2018

nancys-wall-600-li

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi still have their knickers in a twist after getting embarrassed on national television by President Donald J. Trump.

FoxNews.com reports that

The top two Democratic congressional leaders blasted President Trump’s threat of a partial government shutdown if lawmakers do not approve $5 billion in funding toward a border wall with Mexico.

“Democrats and Republicans worked together to put together a [bill to] keep the government open,” Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi of California said at a news conference.

Senator Charles Schumer of New York added that Trump is “plunging the country into chaos” by threatening not to sign a bill that does not appropriate money for the wall.

He said Trump is “throwing a temper tantrum” because Senate Democrats will not go along with his border wall plans.

“All Speaker Ryan has to do is put [the non-wall bill] on the floor of the House,” Schumer said of how Congress can keep the government open after the Friday deadline.

“President Trump was attacked this morning and last night by the hard right, and fearful, he backed off his commitment to sign [the original] bill,” he said.

Pelosi added that it is “a very sad day for our country” with the added news that Gen. James Mattis, the now-outgoing secretary of defense is leaving.

She said Mattis was a moderating voice in the White House around a purportedly radical Trump.

Of course she did. General Mattis is a Democrat.

But, I digress.

For the Democrats to be calling Trump sticking to his guns about building a wall along America’s Southern Border, a “temper tantrum”, is the most ironic statement made in D.C. so far in the 21st Century.

The past 48 hours have been fascinating.

All of the self-proclaimed “political pundits” out there whether they were Democrats, Republicans, Conservatives, Liberals, Libertarians, and those who are sour about everything that Trump does, who are affectionately known at http://www.spartareport.com as “Doomers”, predicted that it was a certainty that Trump was going to cave on building the Border Wall, like the Vichy Republicans were wanting him to.

He didn’t.

Trump is not a professional politician.

He is an American Businessman and Entrepreneur. A billionaire who, at an age when others in his tax bracket would be spending their time on the golf course or hold up like a recluse in one of their many mansions, chose instead to run for President of the United States of America in order to bring the country he loved back from a journey into the dust bins of history caused by professional politicians who remain mired to this day in the D.C. Swamp.

Those who have been poor stewards of the charge given them by American Voters to not only maintain our Sovereign Nation but to make it flourish, cannot stand our current President.

In the first two years of his presidency, he has accomplished more than his predecessors, remembering those who put him in office and doing his best to keep the promises which he made to them.

Chuck and Nancy, this is not a temper tantrum which you see when you look at the 45th President.

It is righteous indignation and dogged determination.

That is why he met with Republican Congressional Leaders yesterday and told them that he would veto any stop-gap legislation sent to him that did not include the 5 billion dollars that he wanted for the building of the Border Wall.

The House went back and passed it.

Now, it’s up to McConnell and the rest of the Senate to do the same.

Chuck and Nancy, you and the rest of your wannabe-socialist “fellow travelers” in the Democratic Party Hierarchy are not used to having a Republican President who fights back.

And, that is why it is you, not President Trump, who are still throwing a National Temper Tantrum 2 years after you lost the presidency.

President Trump does not play “the game” by YOUR rules.

Thank God.

Until He Comes,

Trump “Accepts the Mantle” for Government Shutdown Over Wall, Leaves Pelosi and Schumer Bumfuzzled

December 11, 2018

trump-pelosi-schumer

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump clashed Tuesday with Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi with the cameras rolling in the Oval Office, as the president insisted he’s willing to let the government shut down if Congress doesn’t approve funding for his U.S.-Mexico border wall.

“If we don’t have border security, we’ll shut down the government,” Trump said.

The highly anticipated sit-down quickly escalated, in public, as Trump allowed the press to attend the start of it. Trump began by repeatedly telling Pelosi, the House Democratic leader, his party is limited in what it can do because it will take Democratic support to pass anything through the Senate.

Schumer then raised his voice as he claimed the Senate could pass measures to keep the government running regardless.

“If it’s not good [on] border security, I won’t take it,” Trump shot back.

Pelosi and Schumer repeatedly urged the president to take the meeting private, but not before he declared he’s “proud to shut down the government for border security” and will “take the mantle.”

Pelosi noted, “this has spiraled downwards.”

The meeting broke up roughly a half-hour after the cameras stopped rolling. The very-public discord leaves unclear whether the two sides can come to an agreement to keep the government running before a looming Dec. 21 deadline.

Pelosi, speaking to reporters afterwards, claimed they left things “in a pretty good place.” But the White House put out a statement after the meeting saying “major disagreement remains on the issue of border security and transparency,” despite their “constructive dialogue.”

Schumer and Pelosi put out a terse post-meeting statement: “We gave the president two options that would keep the government open. It’s his choice to accept one of those options or shut the government down.”

The explosive meeting with Schumer, the Senate minority leader, and Pelosi came hours after Trump threatened Tuesday to have the military “build the remaining sections” of the wall if Congress doesn’t deliver the funding. Vice President Mike Pence was also in attendance.

As Trump began discussing the details of the negotiations, Pelosi said, “I don’t think you should have a debate in front of the press.” At another point, Schumer said: “Let’s debate in private.”

Trump and Schumer also exchanged zingers over recent midterm elections.

“Elections have consequences, Mr. President,” Schumer said.

“And that’s why the country is doing so well,” the president shot back.

Not only did the President of the United States of America just hand the ranking democratic Party Leaders of the House and Senate their a@@es on live television, in a brilliant political maneuver he just gave them “nowhere to go” as he accepted the mantle for his promised government shutdown.

Pelosi and Schumer were left revealed as stuttering incompetent enemies of America’s Sovereignty.

And, while that has been known to all of us between the coasts for quite some time now, never have their masks been ripped off them on live television as Trump did today.

They underestimated President Trump.

And, their underestimation is what led to their public embarrassment today.

Trump is not a self-serving professional politician like they plainly are.

He is an American Businessman and Entrepreneur, worth billions of dollars, who put his personal success on hold to serve his country and protect her citizens.

Oh, and by the way…to those #NeverTrumpers and others who have doubted him since before he was inaugurated…he did not become a billionaire by being stupid.

BOOM!!!

Until He Comes,
