    KRGV (Rio Grande Valley) ^ | 8 October, 2019 | Christian von Preysing
    There's heavy construction south of Donna. It’s the second project of its kind in the Rio Grande Valley. This is the ground preparation for the construction of a new border wall. CHANNEL 5 NEWS asked Border Patrol about the contractors, agents and equipment we're seeing at this location. They referred us to an April memo announcing $145 million and a contract with SLSCO to build 13 miles of border wall in the Valley.

    President Trump made a whirlwind tour through San Diego, exuding optimism, vim and vigor.He was in full command at his press conference at the border wall, and the local press coverage, at least as seen on television, was strikingly positive. I watched the live coverage on the local stations here in San Diego. They just let him talk - a fairly long version is here and a shortened shareable form is here: A local Fox News affiliate has a great second segment: ABC's KGTV local affiliate's television coverage, including the post-visit analysis, was even better, but it's not on the web, so...

    Senate Democrats Wednesday blocked debate on the almost $700 billion Pentagon budget and other spending bills amid a feud between the chamber’s leaders over the rules of engagement for translating this summer’s hard-won budget deal into binding legislation. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer orchestrated the party-line filibuster vote, claiming Senate GOP leaders were doing President Donald Trump’s bidding on the U.S.-Mexico border fence and paying for it by shortchanging health and education programs. Both sides accused the other of violating the bipartisan spirit of July’s budget blueprint, which gave Trump a must-have increase in the government’s borrowing limit and new spending...

    “Build the wall" became the unofficial rallying cry of then-candidate Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. Three years later, amid a series of legal and political setbacks that have raised questions about the project's future, the Trump administration is making a renewed effort to show voters the U.S.-Mexico border wall remains a top priority — touting recent construction and vowing to pick up the pace going into 2020. The purchase of critical strips of private land has cleared the way, they argue, for a new phase. The plan, officials told reporters at a briefing this week, is to construct upwards of 450-500...

    To get a sense of just how out of "the shadows" the vast illegal alien smuggling pipeline to America is, consider the little mention that migrants can now offer Yelp-style reviews for attaining the finest in illegal alien–enabling services, not just in one's choice of smuggling coyote, but in all the vast numbers of choices in NGOs offering shelters and services, according to Michelle Malkin, whose new book, Open Borders: Who's Funding America's Destruction, comes out tomorrow.

    Senate Democrats are threatening to withhold their votes on a spending bill for the Pentagon unless Republicans agree to block President Trump from repurposing defense funds for his wall on the Mexican border, a tactic he’s employed in recent months. Democrats on Thursday will offer an amendment in committee to block Trump from reprogramming defense funds for his wall. “There will likely be some amendments offered, and my vote on final passage depends on the fate of those amendments,” said Sen. Dick Durban (Ill.), the top Democrat on the appropriations subcommittee on defense. While the bill could squeak through the...

    Republican Senators Mike Lee and Mitt Romney have co-sponsored legislation that will prevent President Trump in the future of diverting federal funds to border wall construction. The two Republican senators name their bill the Article One Act and it will end all future emergency declarations made under the National Emergencies Act after 30 days unless Congress votes to extend them. Existing laws allow the president of the United States to reprogram existing appropriations for certain purposes. President Trump declared a national emergency Friday citing cartel violence, human trafficking and drug trafficking to access funds to build the border wall. So...

    Fox News chief anchor Shepard Smith on Wednesday disputed President Trump’s recent remarks about border wall construction, saying on air that "there is no new wall." Smith's remarks were in response to a tweet from the president that said the wall is "going up very fast." "So far, despite the president's claims to the contrary, there is no new wall," Smith said. "Existing barriers have been replaced. Same span. The total of repaired barrier is about 60 miles along that 2,000-mile border." "The president also said in the tweet that the wall is going up rapidly. It is not. As...

    President Trump is so eager to complete hundreds of miles of border fence ahead of the 2020 presidential election that he has directed aides to fast-track billions of dollars’ worth of construction contracts, aggressively seize private land and disregard environmental rules, according to current and former officials involved with the project. He also has told worried subordinates that he will pardon them of any potential wrongdoing should they have to break laws to get the barriers built quickly, those officials said. Trump has repeatedly promised to complete 500 miles of fencing by the time voters go to the polls in...

    The Trump administration plans to shift at least $155 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency disaster relief fund to support its policy of returning some migrants to Mexico. The Department of Homeland Security has informed Congress it will reprogram and transfer $271 million in total to its immigration enforcement agency from elsewhere in the department, including the FEMA money, according to documents obtained by CNN. The moves comes as Tropical Storm Dorian nears hurricane strength as it approaches Puerto Rico. Last week, the administration announced its intention to hold migrant families indefinitely, aimed at scrapping a settlement that put...

    Two years ago President Trump sent his trusted lieutenant, Steve Bannon, into European exile. My tea leaves says Trump exiled Bannon for two reasons: 1) to stir up patriotic deplorables of the Old World in their fight against Davos elites; and 2) to keep Bannon a safe distance from American politics so Trump could work with McConnell to approve the historic tax cuts that caused the America economy to shift into overdrive. But Banished Bannon is Back!  The media-savvy protege of Andrew Breitbart once again joins the US political fray to energize the fight for Trump's re-election. This one-hour...

    The Trump administration has not installed a single mile of new wall in a previously fenceless part of the U.S.-Mexico border in the 30 months since President Trump assumed office, despite his campaign promise to construct a “big beautiful wall.” In a statement last week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the federal agency overseeing border barrier construction, confirmed that all the fencing completed since Trump took office is "in place of dilapidated designs" because the existing fence was in need of replacement. The agency said that it had built 51 miles of steel bollard fence with funding that was set...

    FULL TITLE: Border agents use tear gas and pepper pray to stop almost 50 undocumented migrants from storming barricades at the Rio Grande bridge to make their way into the U.S. Border agents used tear gas and pepper spray to prevent almost 50 migrants from entering the U.S. after they tried to storm their way through an entry point along the border in Texas. The incident occurred at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge at around 4 am on Saturday, Fox News reported. U.S. Customs and Border Protection had to build temporary barriers along the bridge due to a large influx of...

The ICE raids began late Saturday and into the early morning hours on Sunday in "a number of jurisdictions," not just New York City, a senior administration official confirmed to Fox News.

    The Trump administration on Friday asked the Supreme Court to lift a freeze on Pentagon money it wants to use to build sections of a border wall with Mexico. Two lower courts have ruled against the administration in a lawsuit over the funding. Last week, a divided three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco kept in place a lower court ruling preventing the government from tapping Defense Department counterdrug money to build high-priority sections of wall in Arizona, California and New Mexico. At stake in the case is billions of dollars that would allow...

    The Geller Report ^ | 7/7/19 | Staff
    It should not surprise anyone that Rep. Rashida Tlaib would trivialize the Holocaust. Tlaib is a product of the Palestinian education system, despite being raised in Michigan. Holocaust denial (here, here, here) is rampant in Palestinian schools. In fact, the Palestinian Authority leader, Mahmoud Abbas, has written and spoken extensively about the subject. In 2018, Abbas stated that the “Holocaust were related to the “social function” of Jews in banking” and in his 1982 doctoral thesis he minimized the extent of the Jewish genocide at the hands of the Nazis. This is the kind of grotesque anti-Semitism that Tlaib was...

U.S. Department of Justice lawyers said in a court filing that they were formally appealing Friday’s ruling to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. “[W]e’re immediately appealing it, and we think we’ll win the appeal,” Trump said during a press conference on Saturday at a summit of leaders of the Group of 20 (G20) major economies in Japan. On Friday, U.S. District Court Judge...
