A Crisis On Our Southern Border

Extraordinary Circumstances Require Extraordinary Measures

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 4/3/2019 9:55 PM

 

Our southern border is being breached and overrun at will, and there is a hard, factual crisis unfolding there, despite a temporary decline in illegal aliens captured at the border between 2006 and 2014 due to an economic downturn. Even some of the most hardcore anti-American Democrats and former Obama officials are hard-pressed to deny that this crisis actually exists, although it seems there isn’t any number of illegal aliens swarming across the border that is large enough to move them to act proactively to secure the border and ensure U.S. sovereignty, national security and the individual economic and physical safety and security of all Americans.

 

With illegal alien entries occurring at their highest rate since 2007, adding to the 30-40 million illegals already here, America has essentially lost effective control over the Mexican-U.S. border, and the current invasion of Illegal Aliens, coming in one massive caravan after another, is on track to push 1.5 million illegal aliens into America this year, in part by way of a semantic deception that calls them “refugees”. This deception is part and parcel of the Democratic Party’s agenda and it is ongoing and in opposition to a majority of Americans who want the illegals deported. Unfortunately, communist activist courts at the federal level, such as the 9th Circuit Court, have also made this next to impossible.

 

Between 2000 and 2006, there was a consistent flow of over one million Illegal Aliens into America, with one year hitting over 1.6 million. That was just the numbers that were detected and returned across the border. One must understand that similarly large numbers are going undetected.

 

Reported by the Department of Homeland Security on March 6th, America can see that in February 76,000 illegal aliens were caught at U.S. ports of entry; the Border Patrol has caught 268,000 illegal aliens since the beginning of the fiscal year, a 97% increase above last year’s numbers; apprehensions of Family Units and Unaccompanied Alien Children have increased 338%; just last month, the Customs and Border Protection agents seized the largest illegal shipment of fentanyl ever recorded — more than enough to kill 115 million Americans. With the detention facilities at 283% capacity, some illegal aliens were actually temporarily sheltered under a bridge in El Paso, Texas. And, it has recently also been revealed that 4000 illegal aliens were caught trying to cross in one day, on March 26th 2019.

 

Jeh Johnson, former Secretary of Homeland Security, recently stated: “I know that a thousand (a day) overwhelms the system. I cannot begin to imagine what 4,000 a day looks like, so we are truly in a crisis.”

 

Even Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt), “Big Red” himself, had to reluctantly acknowledge that a crisis exists, but he hedged his words with the usual anti-American tripe, as he suggested that somehow it was the U.S. border policies that were less than humane. Sanders, a 2020 presidential candidate, told ‘Face the Nation’ there is a “terrible humanitarian crisis” at the southern border, as he added, “We need to make sure that our borders are secure, but also we need a humane policy at the border.”

 

Mark Morgan, Obama’s Border Patrol chief, told Maria Bartiromo (Mornings With Maria/Fox Business News): “It’s absolutely an emergency … ICE doesn’t have any more room. … (they) are having to release illegal aliens into … the United States … (and) because of our asylum laws, they step one foot on American soil, they are allowed in never to be heard from again.”

 

Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says eighty percent of asylum seekers pass the first interview, although only 20 percent ever receive asylum. Nielsen further asserts the people refused asylum are “flat-out fraud[s]” or they are here for economic reasons or to be united with family.

 

It’s also worth noting, in 2018, the federal government reviewed tens of thousands of mostly Chinese immigrants’ asylum statuses. The government was primarily focused on “asylum mills” and groups of lawyers who bragged about coaching migrants from years ago, so they could “fraudulently obtain asylum in Manhattan’s Chinatown and in Flushing, Queens.”

 

These are the policies that allowed twice deported illegal alien Jorge Rios to keep returning to America. Rios, an illegal alien from Honduras, was recently arrested on March 31st for the murder of a New Jersey nanny. And if there’s blame to be placed, place it on Rios and the Democrats, such as Speaker Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer who have continuously pushed the Open Borders agenda for political gain,  and RINOs, such as Speaker Paul Ryan who kept diverting the President from the border emergency to keep the cheap labor pools growing, when the Republicans had the majority and could have done something effective; in some respects, both parties have failed the nation on this issue.

 

Recently, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen implored Congressto act ASAP to give DHSGOV the authorities we need to protect children from the terrible journey, discourage illegal immigration, and secure our border“. She added, “Failure to act is putting lives at risk — especially children who are exploited … and … ‘recycled’ by smugglers / bad guys [who] know our outdated laws and [use] children as a ‘free ticket’ into America without a legal fix and additional resources, there will be no end to the crisis“.

 

Fortunately, President Trump’s National Emergency declaration withstood Democrat and RINO attempts to override it, in the face of such an obvious emergency. And for those who struggle with their native English language, in the manner of the Speaker and Senate Minority Leader, “emergency” is defined by Merriam-Webster as “an unforeseen combination of circumstances or the resulting state that calls for immediate actionan urgent need for assistance or relief.”

 

On Friday March 29th, President Trump noted that Mexico can stop illegal aliens from crossing our southern border, if they choose to do so. The President said: “If they [Mexico] don’t stop [illegal aliens], we’re closing the border. They’ll close it. And we’ll keep it closed for a long time. I’m not playing games.”

 

This was followed by the President’s orders to halt financial aid to these countries that are not discouraging the hordes of illegal aliens, such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. On Saturday March 30th, the State Department acknowledged that it was moving to withhold approximately $700 million in aid to the three Northern Triangle Countries.

 

Virtually every single Democrat is mounting a hue and cry against cutting aid to these countries and closing the border, as they describe the economic damage it will do to the Northern Triangle Countries and Mexico, as well as our own. However, noting that these migrants were already facing “deplorable” conditions,  Kellyanne Conway stated: “This is a classic case of what may happen … versus what’s right in front of us. We are over the melting point.”

 

Several more caravans are forming to send 20,000 to 40,000 more illegal aliens to America, in the wake of the 8,000 member Honduran caravan that not so long ago refused Mexico’s offer of asylum and jobs. Just like Europe’s illegal aliens flooding their countryside hoping to make it to Germany or Great Britain, the Triangle Country illegals know where the largest welfare checks are to be found. America can’t afford either free immigration or a welfare state, and it won’t survive both.

 

Closing the border is a drastic measure that would have immediate consequences for trade and commerce between the United States and Mexico. Mexico is America’s third largest trading partner, with approximately $611 billion in cross-border trade last year, according to the Commerce Department.

 

For each complex problem there exists answers that are clear, simple and wrong, such as Democrats insistence that all who arrive at the border be given immediate entry and legal legitimacy too, even to the point of voting in U.S. elections without being a U.S citizen. These red, radical anti-American Democrats, such as Julian Castro, former mayor of San Antonio, Texas and a 2020 presidential candidate, would totally eradicate 8 U.S. Code 1325 if they could, which would decriminalize unlawful entry, failure to depart the country, fleeing immigration checkpoints, marriage fraud and commercial enterprise fraud. And obstinate as a rock, they refuse to even admit there is an obvious problem, as they turn a blind-eye to the endless stream of humanity, the dregs of Central America, trying to force their way into America, even as they wave foreign flags.

 

President Trump recognizes the crisis and a problem he says can be fixed by Congress “in 45 minutes”, and his recent actions have put all involved on notice that this problem will be resolved or the problem nations will suffer economically. So too will it bear some economic cost to America, but a little pain now is much preferable to the complete destruction of our nation later. He should absolutely refuse to surrender America’s immigration policies to anti-American Congressmen and foreigners, and he must pursue the complete closure of the southern border, if that’s what it takes to force Congress to come to its senses on this issue. Extraordinary circumstances require extraordinary measures, in the name of the security and sovereignty of the United States and humanity.

Breaking: Rep. Doug Collins Releases Nellie Ohr Testimony Transcript Before House Judiciary Committee — Contributing ‘Author’ of Phony Dossier

 

By Jim Hoft

March 28, 2019

The Gateway Pundit

 

Nellie and Bruce Ohr

 

In December 2017 the head of opposition research firm Fusion GPS admitted in a court filing that his firm paid Nellie Ohr, the wife of senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, to help dig up damaging information on then-candidate Donald Trump.

 

The connections between Nellie Ohr and the ‘Spygate’ scandal were hidden at a distance for months.

 

As noted previously at TGP, Nellie Ohr is a Communist sympathizer connected to Russia as well as a corrupt Never-Trumper.

 

Author Diana West at the American Spectator posted an article on Nellie Ohr last year.  Nellie Ohr is “the “dossier” spying scandal’s woman in the middle.”

 

To one side of Ohr, there is the Fusion GPS team, including fellow contractor Christopher Steele. To the other, there is husband Bruce Ohr, who, until his “dossier”-related demotion, was No. 4 man at the Department of Justice, and a key contact there for Steele.

 

What’s more revealing about Nellie Ohr is the men in her life are protecting her involvement in the Russia scandal:

 

Notably, the “dossier” men in her life have tried to shield Ohr from public scrutiny, even at professional risk. Her husband, as the Daily Caller News Foundation reports, failed to disclose his wife’s employment with Fusion GPS and seek the appropriate conflict-of-interest waiver, which may have been an important factor in his demotion from associate deputy attorney general late last year.

 

Under Senate and House questioning, Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson consistently failed to disclose Nellie Ohr’s existence as one of his firm’s paid Russian experts, let alone that he hired her for the red-hot DNC/Clinton campaign Trump-Russia project.

 

Even Christopher Steele may have tried to keep Nellie Ohr “under cover.” Steele, put forth as the “dossier” author ever since its January 2017 publication in BuzzFeed, does not appear to have let on to his many media and political contacts that he had “dossier”-assistance from at least two fellow Fusion GPS Russian experts, Nellie Ohr and Edward Baumgartner. Baumgartner, interestingly, was a Russian history major at Vassar in the 1990s when Nellie Ohr taught Russian history there.

 

It appears that the men in Nellie’s life did all they could to prevent Nellie Ohr from being outed for being involved in the dossier because she also has links to the CIA and therefore to John Brennan.

Now this…

 

New evidence suggests Nellie Ohr was working for the CIA and Fusion GPS when she passed on the junk Trump-Russia dossier and information on the Trump Children to the DOJ-FBI.

 

Via The Last Refuge – Conservative Treehouse:

 

 

The latest FOIA requests indicate Nellie Ohr was working for the DOJ in 2015-2016.

 

 

 

On Wednesday night during his interview with Sean Hannity – President Trump called Nellie Ohr the author of the phony dossier.

 

Nellie Ohr has deep involvement with the creation of this fraudulent document.

 

 

On Thursday Rep. Doug Collins released the Nellie Ohr testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee.

Muslims Rejecting America


Justin Smith righteously writes about a couple of Muslim gals (Muslemas) who incredulously managed to get elected to Congress. Putting it simply, these Muslim gals are a couple of Islamic Supremacist Jew-Haters.

 

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D – MI-13) & Rep. Ilhan Omar (D – MN-5)

Muslims Rejecting America  

A Twisted Reality in the House

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 3/9/2019 7:24 PM

 

Dual loyalty and anti-Semitism against Jews and supporters of Israel came to national attention recently over remarks made by freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, a refugee from Somalia, who suggested that Jews were more loyal to Israel than they are loyal to the United States, and it is enough to make one laugh to keep from crying, if it were not so serious. Not only is Judaism not the problem in America, not the religion of terrorists seeking to destroy America and subjugate Her, but if anyone’s loyalty to America should be questioned, let’s look at these Muslemas, such as Omar, Representative Rashida Tlaib and Islamic supremacist and activist Linda Sarsour, whose own loyalties regularly appear to lie with Somalia, Iran, al Shabaab, Hamas, Hezbollah, Gaza and the mythical country of “Palestine“; and perhaps not so ironically, all Americans will see that Muslims born here and living here a majority of their lives are not assimilating as well as the “experts” would have us believe.

 

The remark by Omar that led to the March 7th House resolution against hate, anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim bigotry and white supremacists went as follows: “I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it’s OK to push for allegiance to a foreign country.” Even many prominent Democrats, such as Rep. Eliot Engel (NY) thought this echoed charges of “dual loyalty” to Israel that have long been used to intimidate Jews from participating in politics, as he offered that such wordshave no place in our public discourse and indeed can be very dangerous.”

 

Tlaib also charged Jews with harboring dual loyalty in January, when she said political supporters of Israel “forgot what country they represent“.

 

Omar, now 37, has lived in America since age eight, and that makes it all the more interesting that just weeks after her election, on December 20th 2016, Omar was in Mogadishu, Somalia with its president, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, and she went on to also meet with her husband to be, Ahmed Hirsi, and his friend, former Prime Minister Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed, also called “Farmajo“, who is also a U.S. citizen and now Somalia’s new President.

 

Security Agent Directive 4 in the U.S Code states in part: “Conditions that could easily raise a security concern … include contact, regardless of method, with a foreign family member … professional associate … or a … resident in a citizen of or resident in a foreign country if that contact creates a heightened risk of exploitation, manipulation, pressure, or coercion.”

 

On March 17th, Representative Rashida Tlaib, an American Palestinian-Muslim, who took her Constitutional Oath on the Koran and wrapped herself in a Palestinian flag after her election as she promised to “impeach the mother ****er” (Pres. Trump), is speaking in Livonia, Michigan, alongside Imam Omar Suleiman, who supports executing homosexuals and hijabs for women to avoid incestuous relationships. She also is tied to many other Islamic supremacists, associates of terrorists and terrorist organizations, such as the Muslim American Society and CAIR, front groups for Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, and Jamaat-e-Islami and the Islamic Circle of North America.

 

On March 23rd, Rep. Omar will speak at the Los Angeles CAIR event, the 4th Annual Valley Banquet, where she will meet with Islamist Hassan Shibly (CAIR of Florida), who actively supports Hamas and Hezbollah. She will rub shoulders with the director of CAIR – Los Angeles, Hussam Ayloush, who blamed United States’ policy for the Islamic terror attack on San Bernardino.

 

Like Tlaib, Linda Sarsour is an American Palestinian-Muslim, born in Brooklyn, who is a Jew-hating, Israel-hating apologist for Islamic jihadi terrorists that advocates for the movement to boycott, divest and sanction Israel. She tweeted, in 2012, “Nothing is creepier than Zionism.”

 

On March 6th, speaking in Arabic, Linda Sarsour ordered her Islamic thugs of CAIR to block Asra Nomani, a journalist and leader in the Muslim Reform Movement, from entering Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s office, behind her, Islamist Jinan Shbat and Nihad Awad, executive director of CAIR [Blog Editor: On same day Sarsour posed for photos with CAIR thugs in Rep. Ilhan Omar’s office], as they wished to discuss their anti-Semitic views with Omar in private. So, we now see Islamic thugs controlling the Halls of Congress.

 

Yasmine Mohammed offered the following translation on March 7th, in a tweet: ““Don’t let her be one of the first ones in. Do you all hear me?

Nomani was a friend of Daniel Pearl, Wall Street Journal reporter, who was abducted and murdered in Pakistan. She was in Pakistan at the time and made sure his story was front and center in the news and his memory honored. Pearl’s brutal beheading and his friendship with Nomani meant nothing to these anti-Semitic Sons of Mohammed, who mistreated her.

 

Many Republicans and even a few Democrats stated that Omar should have been named in the resolution. Pelosi asserted, “It’s not about her; it’s about these forms of hatred.” Pelosi simply has chosen to ignore Omar’s long pattern of these sort of anti-Semitic statements.

 

And so, rather than censure Ilhan Omar, a Somalian Muslim, and others in Congress for their anti-Jewish anti-Semitic words and deeds, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party had to take an entire week to condemn all hate and also “anti-Muslim discrimination and bigotry against minorities.” Talk about a weak resolution and losing focus.

 

It’s not the Jewish religion and Israel that are engaging in terrorism worldwide and committing one terror act after another in America. It is Islam and Muslims to the largest extent.

 

Neither did the resolution mention Christianity at a time when a rising tide of hatred is witnessed against Bible-believing Christians, and yet, five entire sections focus on anti-Muslim bigotry and “the reality of anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism” and the need “to ensure that the United States will live up to the transcendent principles of tolerance, religious freedom, and equal protection as embodied in the Declaration of Independence and … the Constitution“. [Resolution – 030719]

 

How remarkably disingenuous of the Democrats to presume to tell Americans that we must be tolerant of the intolerant Muslims who reject the very principles named in this miserable farce of a resolution.

 

These Muslemas, who so benefited from the system they hate, have absorbed the Islamic propaganda they were spoon-fed from childhood. And now fully indoctrinated, they speak like foreign representatives from Muslim nations, always blaming America, Israel and “the Jews” first, before anything else. They call good “evil” and evil “good”, while hating America and Israel for having the strength of conviction and virtue to stand in the face of the absolutely unequivocally proven evil ideology of Islam.

 

Nothing is made clearer by the examples of Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Rashida Tlaib and activist Linda Sarsour that too many in the Muslim-American community have failed to adopt Western values, while they prove, despite contrary assertions, that it is never a good idea to accept individuals into America whose values and customs are so antithetical to U.S. principles and American culture. And although they would have been better served to have stayed in the Middle East, America still has legislators bound and determined to impose policies of identity politics and multiculturalism, that allow refugee communities to isolate themselves and essentially refuse to assimilate.

 

Americans will not be surprised, once they witness Omar, Tlaib and Sarsour and their associates continue to form tighter bonds with Islamic supremacist connections and utter more anti-Semitic rhetoric. These Muslemas are unassimilated Islamofascists who have rejected the American way of life and our American traditions, culture and heritage, with the blame, in part, lying at the feet of U.S. policies that defer to the customs of the homelands of refugee communities. And if we continue to allow Muslims to immigrate to the U.S. and ignore their anti-American customs, America will surely see many more Omars and Tlaibs join the ranks of Congress, with their hatred for America’s founding principles and America Herself.

Intro to Justin’s Thoughts on ‘No Apologies’


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

© March 9, 2019

On Thursday (3/7/19) the House dominated by Dems passed an anti-Hate-Speech Resolution. A Resolution is not a binding law which is good because I doubt the Resolution would pass First Amendment muster.

 

The story behind the Resolution was the Antisemitism openly displayed by new House members – both Dems – both Muslims – have both been caught openly displaying Jew-hatred speech. It appears Ilhan Omar was the most egregious, but Rashida Tlaib has had her share of Antisemitism as well.

 

When the Dems were called out on their members’ Antisemitism, they ended up protecting Omar and Tlaib by a watered down Resolution – 030719 aimed at labeling criticism of Islam as Hate-Speech. And although I couldn’t find specific mention of labeling criticism of the ungodly LGBTQ lifestyle as hate, I suspect some Humanist/Multiculturalist would such criticism the Resolution’s use of the word “bigotry”.

 

Condemning anti-Semitism as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contradictory to the values and aspirations that define the people of the United States and condemning anti-Muslim discrimination and bigotry against minorities as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contrary to the values and aspirations of the United States. (Resolution – 030719. With elaboration of what constitutes Hate-Speech.)

 

I found a Justin Smith post on his Facebook page that illustrates the same ire I felt in realizing where this Hate-Speech Resolution could lead. Now I don’t know if Justin’s passion for Free Speech has something to with Resolution – 030719 or some other situation, but in my opinion it applies.

No Apologies for Free-Speech Truth

 

By Justin Smith

March 8, 2019 7:07 PM

 

No apologies should ever be made for hating something, because certain people, activities and ideologies have full well earned any hatred directed towards them. The term “hate-speech” is the Progressive Democrats’/Communists’ catch-phrase assault on the Truth, when the Truth exposes one of their nefarious agendas or allies. And I hate with a passion, and I love with a passion, as is my God-given right to think as I believe and feel about issues as I choose. It is a part of all human psyche to hate and to love, as well as to experience anger and joy. No thought police will ever keep me from speaking my mind through their own hypocrisy in the use of the term “hate-speech”!

 

This definition is from ‘Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary’ (1977):

 

hate 1a: intense hostility and aversion usually from fear, anger or a sense of injury

 

2a: extreme dislike or antipathy. I fear very little, so my hatred stems from anger, a sense of injury and an extreme dislike. The poet Maya Angelou shouts: “Be angry. It is right to be angry. It is healthy.”

 

Do I hate?…Damn straight I hate!

 

Psalms 97:10: You who love the Lord hate evil!

 

I hate the small-minded miniature Joe Stalins of the Democratic Party and their Muslim allies within their party, such as Representative Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, who in turn have shared their own hatred of this America I love so well.

 

I loathe those Muslims and Muslim sympathizers who advocate the spread of Sharia Law across the entire U.S., such as Dalia Mogahed (Advisor to Pres. Obama) and Harold Koh (Head of Obama’s Legal Counsel-U.S. State Dept.). Sharia Law is evil; Islam is not a religion, because it has little to do with God and primarily promotes Mohammed’s doctrines and policies.

 

Psalms 119:104: I gain understanding from Your precepts; therefore I hate every false way.

 

Islam and its Sharia Law doctrines represent an ideology diametrically opposed to the U.S. Constitution and are the enemy to America and freedom. And yet, Muslims live in the heart of America, for the most part and until just the past few years, without having their differences questioned, without checking their bad intentions, and without being penalized for their sullen fanaticism.

 

The Progressives, Muslims and Communists of the world can mock Christianity, the Virgin Mary or Jesus and nobody touches their right of thought or expression, but if myself or Pete Doughtie or anyone else simply states facts concerning Islam. the Koran and the Prophet Mohammed, we are called bigots, xenophobes and racists. Progressive Democrats/Communists and Code Pink can yell anti-American slogans, call our soldiers “murderers” and “baby-killers”, fly the Mexican or any other nationality flag over the U.S. flag or even burn our beloved American flag and nothing happens; but if anyone does the identical thing against Islam, all Hell breaks loose! This conflict is ideological and has no racial quality whatsoever.

 

If we can condone Islamofascism and Sharia Law within the U.S. in the name of broadmindedness, understanding and pluralism, why did we fight Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin? Why did we organize the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba? Why did we go to Korea and Vietnam? Why does the U.S. send soldiers, such as Seal Team Six, to kill and die in wars declared against the enemies of freedom, of democracy and of civilization? Are these principles valid in certain cases only, with certain nations only? Aren’t Islamic tyrannies as unacceptable as the communist and fascist ones? I’ve had enough of this Leftist duplicity, ambiguity and hypocrisy! I am a free spirit, a free individual, and I refuse any form of tyranny such as Islamic Sharia; I refuse to listen to the clamor for the Theocratic State.

 

The Leftists and the Muslim sympathizers would exterminate the right of dissent within our representative democratic Republic. They would see us punished and our admonishments against Islam made criminal, just as the case in Europe, where we witnessed numerous notable people, such as Brigitte Bardot and Geert Wilders, prosecuted for “hate-speech” against Muslims. They would silence America’s children, hand them to the enemy and abandon them to a minority that swaggers and blackmails as it re-establishes heresy and burns the free minds on the stake. They would build a non-democracy…a deceit…a lie!

 

Upon their death, I full well suspect that all Progressive Democrat/Communists will plunge headlong into Hell and down Lucifer’s throat due to multiple un-repented sins, but especially their intellectual terrorism. They presume and assume to hold the Truth in a dogmatic manner; if you do not think as they do, you are an idiot and an outcast. And now, Hollywood, public education, university professors and pseudo-intellectuals have poisoned the minds of two generations, as they work on the third. Let’s state facts. The mendacious pacifists who disseminate the most obtuse illiberalism and the most bullying fascism were spawned by the Left; anti-Americanism originated with the Democratic Party, and now they are engaging in an even more despicable sin, as they foster Islamism and Sharia Law in America!

 

What kind of freedom would allow us to be invaded or muzzled or prevented from thinking, speaking or rebelling? What kind of freedom would allow Americans to live in fear of being prosecuted and convicted as criminals for the fiction of “hate-speech”? What kind of freedom seeks to censor my thoughts and feelings, to decide whom I must love and whom I must hate, so that if I hate my country and my fellow Americans I go to Heaven and if I hate Muslims I go to Hell? A non-freedom, I say…a mockery…a farce!

 

Like love, hate belongs to human nature…to Life…and cannot be forbidden by some article of some penal code. It can be judged, adversed or condemned, but only on a moral basis. I have the right to love whom I want, and I also have the right to hate whom I want. Let’s start with those who hate me. Yes, I hate the Bin Ladens, the Zawahiris and the kamikazes and suicide bombers who blow our people up; I do hate the bastards who smear the facades of churches and urinate on them. I do hate the Michael Moores, the Ward Churchills, the Noam Chomskys, the George Soroses, Cloward and Pivens, the Barack Obamas, their accomplices and the domestic traitors who sell us to the enemy. I do hate them as much as I hate the Ayatollah Khomeini, Putin, Ahmadinejad, Hu and Chavez. I hate them as I always hated any murder of Freedom. It is my sacrosanct right…my sacrosanct duty.

 

John 8:32: You will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free.

 

Millions of American patriots, such as myself, Pete Doughtie, Kevin Fisher, Lou Ann Zelenik, Rebecca Bynum, Pam King, Sam Solomon, Bill Warner, Jerry Gordon, Frank Gaffney and Bill Ketron, have led the battle against the introduction of Sharia Law and Islamofascism within the U.S. through the use of honest facts. All of us are fulfilling a very difficult, a very grievous duty…the duty of speaking the Truth. And in speaking the Truth, giving voice to the voiceless!

Dem-Propaganda to Take Over Election Process


Dem-Propaganda to Take Over Election Process

If you haven’t heard already, you will probably a lot of promotion of Rep. (Speaker) Pelosi’s HR 1 named with typical Leftist deception, “For the People Act of 2019”. There is nothing for the people in this voting revamp-Bill. There is a load of destroy the American election process which among other things threatens 10th Amendment States’ Rights.

 

Thanks to the Heritage Foundation, here is some must read information to counter the lying propaganda the Dems will be pitching  for support.

House Democrats’ #1 priority this week is to weaken our election process for decades…

The House will vote this week on H.R. 1, the Democrat-backed “For the People Act.” This deceptively-titled bill would strip the American people and state governments’ of their power to oversee their own elections and hand it over to the federal government.

 

Democrats want to rig the election process in their favor without anyone noticing, and federalizing election oversight provides them the perfect cover to do so.

 

H.R. 1 mandates changes that make it near impossible to ensure the integrity of our elections. Specifically the bill would:

 

  • Mandate same-day voter registration

 

  • Automatically add illegal aliens to voter registration rolls

 

  • Abolish state voter ID laws

 

  • Allow voters to vote outside their precinct

 

  • Give one party majority control of the Federal Elections Commission

 

>>> Click here for more information on this corrupt bill.

 

Nancy Pelosi is using her new power in the House Democrat majority to weaken our election system for generations. She must be stopped.

 

In order to shine a big spotlight on the issue, we are taking to Twitter this Wednesday—and we need your help.

 

Please join grassroots activists nationwide on Twitter to expose this election fraud bill. We need to send the message that the “For the People Act” is #NOTforthePeople.

The Facts About H.R. 1—the For the People Act of 2019

 

February 1, 2019

The Heritage Foundation

 

SUMMARY

H.R. 1 federalizes and micromanages the election process administered by the states, imposing unnecessary, unwise, and unconstitutional mandates on the states and reversing the decentralization of the American election process—which is necessary for protecting our liberty and freedom. The bill interferes with the ability of states and their citizens to determine qualifications for voters, to ensure the accuracy of voter registration rolls, to secure the integrity of elections, to participate in the political process, and to determine the district boundary lines for electing their representatives.

The Issue

 

H.R. 1 federalizes and micromanages the election process administered by the states, imposing unnecessary, unwise, and unconstitutional mandates on the states and reversing the decentralization of the American election process—which is necessary for protecting our liberty and freedom.

 

The bill interferes with the ability of states and their citizens to determine qualifications for voters, to ensure the accuracy of voter registration rolls, to secure the integrity of elections, to participate in the political process, and to determine the district boundary lines for electing their representatives.

 

What H.R. 1 Would Do:

 

  • Seize the authority of statesto regulate voter registration and the voting process by forcing states to implement early voting, automatic voter registration, same-day registration, online voter registration, and no-fault absentee balloting.

 

  • Make it easier to commit fraudand promotes chaos at the polls through same-day registration, as election officials have no time to verify the accuracy of voter registration information and cannot anticipate the number of voters, ballots, and precinct workers that will be needed.

 

  • Hurt voter turnout through early voting by diffusing the intensity of get-out-the-vote efforts; it raises the cost of campaigns. Voters who vote early don’t have the same information as those who vote on Election Day, missing late-breaking developments that could affect their choices.

 

  • Degrade the accuracy of registration lists by automatically registering individuals from state databases, such as DMV and welfare offices, by registering large numbers of ineligible voters, including aliens as well as multiple or duplicate registrations of the same individuals.

 

  • Constitute a recipe for massive voter registration fraud by hackers and cyber criminals through online voter registrationnot tied to an existing state record, such as a driver’s license.

 

  • Require states to count ballots cast by voters outside of their assigned precinct, overriding the precinct system used by almost all states that allows election officials to monitor votes, staff polling places, provide enough ballots, and prevent election fraud. Mandates no-fault absentee ballots, whichare the tool of choice for vote thieves.

 

  • Prevent election officials from checking the eligibility and qualifications of voters and remove ineligible voters. This includes restrictions on using the U.S. Postal Service’s national change-of-address system to verify the address of registered voters; participating in state programs that compare voter registration lists to detect individuals registered in multiple states; or everremoving registrants due to a failure to vote no matter how much time has gone by.

 

  • Cripple the effectiveness of state voter ID lawsby allowing individuals to vote without an ID and merely signing a statement in which they claim they are who they say they are.

 

  • Violate the First Amendment and could cover a vast range of legal activity. Voter intimidation or coercion that prevents someone from registering or voting is already a federal crime under the Voting Rights Act and the National Voter Registration Act. But H.R. 1 adds an additional provision to prevent interference with registering or voting that is so vague that it could easily interfere with free speech and other lawful activity.

 

  • Expand regulation and government censorship of campaigns and political activity and speech,including online and policy-related speech. H.R. 1 imposes onerous legal and administrative compliance burdens and costs on candidates, citizens, civic groups, unions, corporations, and nonprofit organizations. Many of these provisions violate the First Amendment, protect incumbents, and reduce the accountability of politicians to the public.

 

  • Reduce the number of Federal Election Commission membersfrom six to five, allowing the political party with three commission seats to control the commission and engage in partisan enforcement activities.
  • Prohibit state election officials from participating in federal elections and impose numerous other “ethics” rules that are unconstitutional or unfairly restrict political activity.

 

  • Require states to restore the ability of felons to vote the moment they are out of prison. Section 2 of the 14th Amendment gives states the constitutional authority to decide when felons who committed crimes against their fellow citizens may vote again. Congress cannot override a constitutional amendment with a statute.

 

  • Transfer the right to draw congressional districts from state legislatures to “independent” commissions whose members are unaccountable to voters. H.R. 1 makes it a violation of federal law to engage in “partisan” redistricting and mandates inclusion of alien population, both legal and illegal, in all redistricting. This is an anti-democratic, unconstitutional measure that takes away the ability of the citizens of a state to make their own decision about redistricting.

 

  • Violate separation of powers and directly interfere with the President’s constitutional duties. H.R. 1 bans his political appointees, such as the Attorney General, from participating in, directing the defense of, or assisting in any matter (including lawsuits against a President’s policies, programs, executive orders, or his enforcement of the law) in which the President is named as a party.

Background Information

 

Heritage Action for America

 

H.R. 1 is Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s signature piece of legislation for the 116th Congress. Deceptively titled “For the People Act,” its primary goal is to rig the election system in favor of Democratic politicians by undermining America’s electoral process.

 

Under H.R. 1, massive amounts of elections-related power would be transferred from the states to the federal government. The bill interferes with the ability of states and their citizens to determine qualifications for voters, to ensure the accuracy of voter registration rolls, to secure the integrity of elections, to participate in the political process, and to determine the district boundary lines for electing their representatives.

 

The end goal of H.R. 1 is clear—to enshrine into law dubious electoral practices that enable and encourage fraudulent behavior, such as ballot harvestingfalse voter registrationsduplicate voting, and ineligible voting.

 

Heritage scholar and election expert Hans Von Spakovsky summarized the problems with H.R. 1 as such, “Sometimes legislation proposed by Congress is bad policy; sometimes it is unnecessary; and sometimes it is unconstitutional. H.R. 1 is all three.”

 

At 600+ pages long, H.R. 1 contains many provisions that are unhelpful, unnecessary, and unconstitutional. Below are just a few of the terrible policies contained within of H.R. 1:

 

Sabotages state voter ID laws—When arriving at the polls, voters will not be required to show ID and can simply sign a statement in which they claim to be who they say they are. This undermines many states’ voter ID laws, which were enacted to combat impersonation fraud, voter registration fraud, duplicate voting, and voting by ineligible individuals, such as illegal aliens.

 

Mandates same-day registration—States will be required to immediately register a person to vote upon request, even on the day of an election. With no buffer-period to verify personal information, this provision could easily lead to voter fraud.

 

Automatically registers ineligible voters—States will be required to automatically add to voter registration rolls every person, regardless of voter eligibility, who partakes in certain government programs, such as receiving welfare or obtaining a driver’s license. Other provisions of H.R. 1 then restrict the ability of states to verify eligible voters and the removal of ineligible voters from voter registration rolls. This provision will automatically enroll ineligible voters such as illegal aliens.

 

Unconstitutionally requires states to restore the ability of felons to vote—Upon release from prison, every felon would immediately be restored the ability to vote. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution allows states to restrict voting rights to those who have participated in “rebellion, or other crime.” States have the constitutional authority to decide when or if to restore that right, as long as they do so in a manner that is not racially discriminatory. H.R. 1 would attempt to unconstitutionally overrule the 14th Amendment with a statute.

 

Violates the First Amendment—H.R.1 deters political free speech by inserting a provision that makes it a criminal offense to provide “materially false” information that will “impede or prevent” someone from registering or voting. This provision is so vague that it would likely interfere with free speech and other legitimate activities.

 

Requires ballots be counted outside of the voter’s precinct—This removes the integrity of the local government to verify voter rolls and oversee elections and gives the power to count votes entirely to the federal government.

 

Creates unaccountable redistricting committees—Currently, congressional district lines are drawn by state governments which are accountable to their constituents. Allowing unelected officials to determine congressional districts is a nakedly political ploy to draw more Democratic districts.

 

Alters Federal Election Commission into a partisan organization—Currently the FEC has six members (three from each party), preserving its bipartisan nature. H.R. 1 would reduce the number to five, giving one party a majority and the opportunity to weaponize the FEC for their party’s benefit.

 

Key Talking Points

 

  • Helps Liberals in Elections—R. 1 is designed to fund, elect, and maintain liberals in Congress, it even allows for using taxpayer dollars to fund candidates.

 

  • Federalization of the Election Process—R. 1 allows for overreaching federal authority of election processes by imposing unnecessary and unconstitutional mandates on states.

 

  • Removal of Redistricting Power—Under this bill, the power to draw congressional districts would be given to an unelected third-party.

 

  • Automatic Registration of Ineligible Voters—R. 1 interferes with states’ abilities to determine qualifications for voters and destroys the accuracy of voter registration rolls.

 

  • No Accountability for Vote Counting—Destroys the sanctity of the election process and endangers our democracy by requiring ballots be counted outside the county’s precinct.

 

  • Felon Voter Registration—Upon release from prison, felons are automatically allowed to register as voters.

 

  • Unchecked Voter Identification—States will be required to register voters on the day of elections and instead of requiring voters to bring ID to the polls H.R. 1 allows for people to simply “sign a statement” confirming identification. With no buffer-period to verify personal information, this provision could easily lead to voter fraud.

 

Call Notes

 

Hello,

 

My name is [NAME] from [CITY AND ZIP CODE] and I am calling today to urge [MEMBER OF CONGRESS] to vote against H.R. 1.

 

This bill strips states’ rights to regulate their individual election processes and undermines the integrity of our election process. This micromanaging attempt at federalizing the election process destroys the sanctity of the election process and endangers our democracy. As with most programs, voting is best regulated at levels closest to the people.

 

Four of the most troubling provisions of H.R. 1 are:

 

  • Requires states to restore the ability of felons to vote

 

  • Jeopardizes First Amendment rights

 

  • Federalizes congressional redistricting

 

  • Turns the Federal Election Commission into a partisan organization

 

These requirements will make it harder to detect fraudulent votes and make it easier for illegal immigrants and other ineligible voters to be registered to vote. As a constituent of [MEMBER OF CONGRESS], I am asking that they stand for election integrity and vote against H.R. 1.

 

Thank you for your time.

Sample Letter to the Editor

 

Below is a sample letter to the editor. We encourage you to adapt and personalize the letter below. Heritage Action Regional Coordinators are always here to help edit your letter and get it published.

 

Public confidence and trust in the validity of election results is key to increasing voter participation. Americans deserve a fair and accurate election process. This means not only making sure that every eligible individual is able to vote, but that his or her vote is not stolen or diluted through fraud. The Democrats “For the People Act” (H.R. 1) unfortunately would both enable and increase fraud.

 

H.R. 1 would sabotage state voter ID laws, which currently combat impersonation and voter registration fraud, duplicate voting, and voting by ineligible individuals like illegal aliens. Under H.R. 1, someone could simply sign a statement in which they claim to be who they say there are. This would be on top of allowing same-day voter registration. The combination of these two policies that H.R. 1 outlines would open the door for massive fraud.

 

The bill would also require automatically registering individuals to vote who partake in government programs such as receiving welfare or obtaining a driver’s license. This would automatically enroll ineligible voters such as illegal aliens who take advantage of government programs. In addition, it limits states ability to verify eligible voters and remove ineligible voters from registration rolls.

 

In addition to these dangerous policies, it would turn the Federal Election Commission into a hyper-partisan body. Currently the FEC is bipartisan, with six members (three from each party). H.R. 1 would reduce the number to five, giving one political party a majority and the opportunity to essentially rig elections in their party’s favor.

 

Sometimes legislation proposed by Congress is bad policy, sometimes it is unnecessary, and sometimes it is unconstitutional. “For The People Act” includes policies that are all three, and I am urging [insert Representative’s Name] to reject this bill.

Senator Baby-Killers


John R. Houk

© February 26, 2019

Yesterday (2/25/19) 53 Senators voted in favor of Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S.311) and 44 Senators essentially VOTED AGAINST saving the lives of botched abortion live-birth babies. And three Senators didn’t vote.

 

Killing babies before they are born is bad enough, but 44 freaking Dem Senators voted to perpetrate the death of a baby born alive when the child’s already egregious abortion failed.

 

WHY?

 

Senator Baby-Killer-in-chief Schumer felt protecting human threatened the Baby-Killer industry and by-Satan the Dems are going to protect abortionists at any cost to a human life that escaped the torture of a murderous abortion and lived.

 

If you live in a State with a Senator Baby-killer coming up for election in 2020, YOU need to decide you desire to align with live-birth baby-killing infanticide or to protect the basic human life from murder. HERE IS A LIST OF SENATOR BABY-KILLERS enabling YOU the voter to choose with protecting the life of new birthed baby or to MURDER the live birthed baby on election day 2020:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Three Senators did not vote and they ALL are Republicans. If YOU live in this Senator’s State, YOU need to phone or write to ask WHY. If the reason is lame, DO NOT VOTE FOR THAT SENATOR:

   

 

 

 

Something to dwell on with your voting decision in 2020: The SIXTH COMMANDMENT in the Amplified Version clarity on Baby-Killing:

 

13 “You shall not commit murder (unjustified, deliberate homicide). — Exodus 20: 13 (AMP)

 

It’s time to terminate (or abort) the Senate 60-vote threshold to change laws and end filibusters!

Democrats block bill to ensure medical care for abortion survivors

 

By Kimberly Leonard

February 25, 2019 06:12 PM — Updated Feb 25, 2019, 09:14 PM

Washington Examiner

 

Senate Democrats on Monday defeated a GOP attempt to advance legislation that would clarify that babies who survive attempted abortions must receive medical care.

 

Republicans and anti-abortion advocates pushed for the bill, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, to receive a vote so that they could put individual senators on the spot regarding the issue of third-trimester abortion. GOP senators have been aiming to pressure Democrats to state whether they believe any limits should be placed on abortion after controversial comments appearing to indicate otherwise from Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam.

 

The legislation fell short of the 60 votes it needed to advance in a procedural maneuver, 53 to 44. Democrats Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Doug Jones of Alabama joined all Republicans present in voting in favor.

 

“I don’t always follow the Democrats,” Jones told the Washington Examiner of his decision to support the bill. “Having studied the bill I think it’s the right vote.”

 

Republicans and Democrats largely talked past each other about the bill’s purpose during floor debate ahead of the vote. Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., who introduced the bill, said it would stop doctors from letting a baby die who survived a botched abortion. Democrats countered that the bill would limit what doctors could do after the birth of a baby who had a grave medical condition, and as a result either wouldn’t live past birth or wouldn’t survive long.

 

President Trump weighed in on the bill’s defeat several hours later, calling it “one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress.”

 

“Senate Democrats just voted against legislation to prevent the killing of newborn infant children,” the president tweeted Monday night. “The Democrat position on abortion is now so extreme that they don’t mind executing babies AFTER birth. This will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress. If there is one thing we should all agree on, it’s protecting the lives of innocent babies.”

 

 

During his floor speech ahead of the vote, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said the bill would “target, intimidate and shut down reproductive doctors across this country” and “impose requirements on what types of care doctors must provide.”

 

“It has always been illegal to harm a newborn infant,” he said. “This bill has nothing to do with that.” He called the legislation “Washington politics at its worst.”

 

Sasse countered that the bill would keep doctors from “actively allowing a baby to die” who had survived an abortion.

 

“What this bill does is try to secure basic rights, equal rights, for babies that are born and survive outside the womb,” he said.

 

A group of House Republicans, led by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, walked on the Senate floor to support the vote.

 

Earlier this month, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., rejected a motion to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act via unanimous consent, a procedure which a sole senator can stop. Murray objected because, she said, the bill was unnecessary as the U.S. already has laws against infanticide.

 

Northam and Virginia Del. Kathy Tran, also a Democrat, said several weeks ago that they supported a state bill that appeared to allow abortion at the time of birth. Tran later said she misspoke about when abortion would be permitted and Northam’s office later released a statement saying that the governor’s comments were mischaracterized and had been intended to address cases in which babies wouldn’t survive birth because of deformity or another health issue.

 

Sasse pounced on the comments during the floor debate Monday, saying that Northam’s comments amounted to a “discussion about whether you throw that little baby in the trash can.”

 

Virginia tabled the abortion bill, but other states, including Illinois and Massachusetts, are considering loosening restrictions on third-trimester abortion. Supporters of looser restrictions say they are meant to address circumstances in which fetuses have severe medical conditions that would cause them not to survive birth, or that would result in short, painful lives.

 

The bill that failed Monday would have built on the 2002 Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which clarified that “every infant member of the species homo sapiens who is born alive at any stage of development” is a “person” for all federal law purposes. That law was intended to clarify that babies were supposed to receive protections if they survived an abortion, and Sasse’s bill further clarifies what level of care they are supposed to receive, including being immediately transferred to a hospital.

 

If that protocol isn’t followed, then the doctor performing the abortion would face criminal prosecution. Republicans have noted the case of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortion provider who was convicted of killing babies after attempted abortions, as evidence that their bill is necessary. Democrats and abortion rights groups counter that the doctor was prosecuted and convicted, showing that the legal mechanism are already adequate.

 

Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., pointed to the 2002 bill when explaining his decision to vote against Monday’s measure, and saying that the previous legislation already clarifies that infanticide is illegal. Kaine, who has said he is personally troubled by abortion but votes to uphold abortion rights, said he didn’t receive any statistics from Republicans about why the bill was necessary and he said he would have wanted to see the bill go through committee first.

 

“When you have hearings on bills you get the facts out and you explore whether it’s needed,” Kaine said. “They didn’t even want to bring it to committee and that tells me I don’t think they had a real case to justify the bill.”

A National Emergency and Border Security

President Trump Counters Bad Border Deal 

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 2/15/2019 9:08 PM

 

“We want to have a safe country. I ran on a very simple slogan – ‘Make America Great Again.’ If you’re going to have drugs pouring across the border, if you’re going to have human traffickers pouring across the border in areas where we have no protection, in areas where we don’t have a barrier, then, [it is] very hard to make America great again.~ President Donald J. Trump, Rose Garden Speech February 15th 2019

 

President Trump simultaneously declared a national emergency for humanitarian and national security reasons along the border. In the same breath, he noted on February 15th that he would sign the omnibus bill and the bad Border Deal it contains; and in fact, he signed it shortly afterwards, acquiring authority over the $1.375 billion appropriated for the wall, while declaring his intention to spend eight billion more dollars through his authority under the national emergency declaration.

 

The President was left with very little choice from an intransigent, duplicitous Democratic Party leadership in control of the House, at the moment, such as Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who had vowed “not $1 for the wall”. He took a head on approach to avoid another partial government shutdown, however unwise a course it may be, while he diverts $6.5 billion to build portions of the wall that the Democrats have refused to authorize.

 

Americans across the board want The Wall built. These Democrats are against the American people and against U.S. Sovereignty. [Blog Editor: In November 2016, Donald Trump was elected President largely on the promise of a big beautiful wall. YET most recent polls show American disfavor for a border wall. Why? No one can give a definitive answer (unless of course you are a lying Leftist). But here is something to mull over as you hear the Left-Stream Media quote polls most Americans do not want a wall: Those same polls back in November 2016 told Americans Crooked Hillary would win the vote to become President. Those polls were wrong then and I STRONGLY suspect those polls are wrong NOW!]

 

The Republican Party got smoked and beaten badly in this deal. Who in the Hell was negotiating for them?

 

Making the declaration was a strong move for national security and to gain further momentum for the Republicans leading up to the 2020 election, since the Border Deal was a farce of a deal, that only funded 55 miles of the wall, rather than the 200 miles requested.

During his speech on Friday at the White House Rose Garden, President Trump stated: “We’re going to confront the national security crisis on our southern border, and we’re going to do it, one way or another. We have to do it. … We’re talking about an invasion of our country.”

 

Many previous presidents have declared national emergencies prior to this, including George W. Bush and Barack Obama. There were already 31 active national emergencies in the U.S., before President Trump’s declaration marked the 32nd.

 

One should also note, when Obama used his pen to counter U.S. immigration law and implement DACA, to safeguard Illegal Aliens, he eroded U.S. sovereignty, and he went against the Constitution and the express will of the American people. On the other hand, President Trump’s actions are in line with his Constitutional edict to defend and protect U.S. borders and the Constitution.

 

However, the abdication of Congress, in the face of this and many other dire problems, i.e. out-of-control spending, and its relinquishing of its own power and authority over the decades, gave all previous presidents extraordinary power to act in the face of a national emergency, through numerous laws passed by Congress. President Trump has referred to the 1976 National Emergencies Act found at 50 U.S. Code 1601-1651.

 

In light of all this, there is still no way to see this so-called compromise as a anything less than a major loss, once one views the fine print in the Border Deal, which is even worse than it first appeared. It’s the fine print that should have had Republicans turning their backs on this deal. And it’s no wonder the Democrats were in such a rush to sign, not just to avoid a shutdown.

 

Not even 24 hours had elapsed from the introduction of the 1,169 page bill to the vote. House rules require 72 hours for representatives to review a bill.

 

According to Daniel Horowitz, writing at Conservative Review, the bill limits construction to just the Rio Grande Valley sector, disallowing any concrete barriers, while section 231 of the bill prohibits construction even within this area in five locations, that are either state or federal lands. And, much worse, this bill gives veto power to local officials, who may not want the wall in their area.

 

The Rio Grande area is in dire need of significant security measures and an actual physical wall. However, it is home to some of some of the most hardcore “progressive” liberals, and giving these local Democrat satraps a veto over the wall is nothing less than a poison pill.

 

Prior to the President signing the bill, former border officials told Fox News, and several other media outlets, that expanded protections for potential sponsors of unaccompanied migrant children were “land mines” that make the bill worthy of a presidential veto.

 

The Border Deal is one massive betrayal of the American people, in what Daniel Horowitz framed as “a blatant amnesty for the world’s worst cartel smugglers. Section 224 (a) prohibits the deportation of anyone who is sponsoring an “unaccompanied” minor illegal alien; anyone who says they might sponsor an Unaccompanied Child, and anyone who lives in a household with a UAC or a household that potentially might sponsor a UAC. … “the very people paying the cartels to invade us.”

 

This invasion is driven by the intentional skewing of the UAC law, that sets forth what constitutes a true “refugee”. Central American teenagers are only supposed to be treated as refugees, if they are a victim of sex and drug trafficking or have no relatives in America, and yet, nearly each and every one of them is self-trafficked by their own extremely illegal relatives, who reside in America. Rather than saying “No Deal” or forcing much needed changes to the bill, the Republicans went ahead with this miserable fleecing of the American people, which rewards these Illegal Aliens with a de facto amnesty.

 

And from the Center for Immigration Studies, Jessica Vaughn’s interpretation was even grimmer: “We can call this the MS-13 Household Protection Act of 2019.”

 

In justifying his emergency declaration, President Trump repeatedly acknowledged and honored the presence of the Angel Moms in attendance, as he retold the stories of their children’s deaths at the hands of Illegal Aliens. Some of the Angel Moms in the Rose Garden urged the president not to sign the bipartisan bill, noting that it contained several measures that incentivized illegal immigration.

 

At one point in his speech President Trump exclaimed:

 

“We’re talking about an invasion of our country with drugs, with human traffickers, with all types of criminals and gangs. We have some of the greatest people here; I know — they’ve been with me from the beginning of my campaign, almost from the first week — the Angel Moms. Unfortunately, we have new Angel Moms.

 

One incredible woman just showed me her daughter who — we’re talking about killed — in the year of 18. I said, I haven’t seen you before. She said, ‘No, I’m new.’ I said, that’s too bad. It’s too bad. It’s so sad. Stand up, just for a second. Show how beautiful your girl was [in the picture she held]. Thank You.”

 

The President called his actions necessary given the scale of the problem along the southern border, as he responded to CNN Jim Acosta’s suggestion that he had “concocted” an emergency for political gain, whereupon the President responded: “Ask these women [Angel Moms] if there’s a national emergency.”

 

He expects to be met by numerous legal challenges, even as the ACLU sharpens its pencil. He also expects to win in the Supreme Court.

 

Under the Emergency Declaration, President Trump  will attempt to appropriate discretionary military funds to close the gap between the nearly $1.4 billion Congress appropriated for The Wall and the $5.7 billion he has long demanded. However, now the president is reaching for $8 billion, by taking $600 million from the Treasury, the Treasury forfeiture front and $2,5 billion out of the Defense Department. His staff is also looking at using drug interdiction funds and the $3.5 billion they discovered in the military construction budget, that certainly won’t conflict with the President’s constitutional mandate to defend America.

 

Declaring the emergency also puts a companion statute in motion — 10 U.S. Code 2808, that gives the president authority to create military construction projects using funds appropriated for other military projects, such as a $10 billion account approved by Congress last September, for the Army Corps of Engineers, with its military and civilian workforce of 37,000 people.

 

Once he declares an emergency, a companion statute, 10 U.S. Code 2808, says the president can create military construction projects, using funds originally intended for other military projects such as a $10-billion account that Congress approved last September. That money involves the Army Corps of Engineers, with its military and civilian workforce of 37,000 people, which is why a border wall might become a military project

 

Love him or hate him, no one can say that President Donald Trump isn’t standing up for America. He isn’t usurping any powers, not when Congress gave it to him, because they are risk-averse and want to pass the buck to him rather than accept responsibility themselves — dodging accountability and evading its Constitutional duty. Yes — Love him or hate him — President Trump is ideally suited to lead America at this pivotal moment precisely due to his ability to go where no other President would, being a warrior for the American people, whom he so obviously loves
