  • MSNBC’s Wallace: Trump Is ‘Sadistic’

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” host Nicolle Wallace called President Donald Trump “sadistic.” Wallace said, “The Washington Post, out with just some extraordinary reporting on how Donald Trump is micromanaging his border wall’s design. The bollards, or the slats as he prefers to call them, should be painted flat black, a dark hue that would absorb heat in the summer making the metal too hot for climbers to scale. ....She continued, “If any kid in any high school wrote that, they would be sent to the school shrink. I mean, this is sadistic.” She added, “We also know he wants to...

    President Donald Trump's statement at the Mexican border implies he no longer believes he can make the United States great again. Or, perhaps he doesn't know how a Great America would act in such a situation. Trump said: "Our country is full, our area is full, the sector is full, can’t take you anymore. I’m sorry, can’t happen, so turn around -- that’s the way it is,” Trump's statement is pathetic. He sounds like he is whining. He spoke like the head of a weak powerless nation who doesn't expect any improvement in the future. The president of a Great...

    Pop icon has a dramatic change of heart. Pop icon Cher has suddenly had a dramatic change of heart on mass immigration after President Trump threatened to dump illegals in the “sanctuary city” where she lives. Imagine my shock. On Friday, Trump said his administration was considering the idea of releasing immigrants into sanctuary cities, partly in retaliation to Democrats’ support for open borders. Previously, Cher had demanded, “Anyone who can must take a dreamer in2 their home & protect them!! I’m ready 2 do this & others in my business will do the same!! Sanctuary.” View image on Twitter...
  • A Great Nation Would Hire Immigrants to Build The Wall

    President Donald Trump should start acting like the head of a great nation in dealing with the large number of jobless immigrants on the border. The people coming to the Mexican border are essentially saying they think the United States is a great nation which can provide jobs their own countries cannot. A Great Nation helps people in other nations when it can. The United States under President Harry Truman was a great nation because it helped west European nations recover from the devastation their war had caused. The United States cannot provide jobs to everyone in the world, but...

    (CNN) The United States is cutting off aid to the Northern Triangle, otherwise known as the Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, the State Department told CNN Saturday, one day after President Donald Trump said they had "set up" migrant caravans for entry into the United States. "We were paying them tremendous amounts of money. And we're not paying them anymore. Because they haven't done a thing for us. They set up these caravans," Trump said Friday. "At the Secretary's instruction, we are carrying out the President's direction and ending FY 2017 and FY 2018 foreign assistance...

    In these cases, the Ninth Circuit had held that a provision requiring the mandatory detention of non-citizens who have committed certain dangerous crimes applies only if a non-citizen is arrested by immigration officials as soon as he is released from jail. The Supreme Court rejects this interpretation. The Ninth Circuit is reversed and the case is remanded.
  • Senate Republicans Stand With Democrats, Betray American People

    03/14/2019 11:38:33 AM PDT · by NoLibZone · 34 replies ^ | 3-14-19 | Todd Starnes
    A growing number of Senate Republicans have announced they will stand with the Democrats in opposition to President Trump’s national emergency declaration. The latest to betray the American people is Sen. Mitt Romney. “This is not a vote against border security. In fact, I agree that a physical barrier is urgently needed to help ease the humanitarian crisis at the southern border, and the administration already has $4.5 billion available within existing authority to fund a barrier – even without an emergency declaration,” he said. The senator is foolish. Today’s vote is indeed a vote against border security. Here’s the...

    Vice News ^ | February 24, 2016 | William M. Arkin
    The Obama administration is spending close to a half a billion dollars to build a sophisticated electronic fence along Jordan's northern and eastern borders, a wall which US strategic planners hope will stem the flow of refugees and also wall off the increasingly important American base from the disintegration of Syria and Iraq. The wall, which began as a $20 million project in 2008 to erect a set of surveillance towers along a 30-mile (50 km) stretch of the border with Syria, has since expanded into a program costing half a billion dollars, according to defense officials who spoke to...

    President Trump on Wednesday urged fellow Republicans to “stay united” in the face of a Democrat-led effort to nix his declaration of a national emergency at the border. “Senate Republicans are not voting on constitutionality or precedent, they are voting on desperately needed Border Security & the Wall,” he tweeted. "Our Country is being invaded with Drugs, Human Traffickers, & Criminals of all shapes and sizes. That’s what this vote is all about. STAY UNITED!" The House voted last week to block Trump’s emergency declaration, which could help free up billions of dollars to fund a wall on the southern...

    Issues: 1. Is there a Case or Controversy? 2. Is the matter a political issue? CASE OR CONTROVERSY: The Constitution limits the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts to nine classes of “cases or controversies”. Over the years the Supreme Court has exercised its authority by adding further restrictions. Before accepting a case, the court must first determine if the parties have standing. Then it must decide if the timing is right, i.e. “ripe for adjudication”, which is to say that someone has suffered an injury, or withholding a legal determination is likely to result in substantial hardship on the plaintiff....

    There must be numerous Democratic officials who are aware that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have crossed the line into the absurd regarding their anti-border wall fiasco but remain silent. Such cannot be said about the growing number of newly elected and "converted" Democrat radicals who echo extreme views without the slightest understanding of the facts. Reuters on February 6 published a piece titled "U.S. Border Officials Don't Share Trump's Zeal for Border Wall." The article reported on a classified briefing given by Customs and Border Protection agents to lawmakers, including Democratic senator Dick Durbin, who emerged from that briefing...

    As a second partial government shutdown looms in Washington over border discussions, Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday will order the removal of roughly 360 National Guard members from California’s southern boundary with Mexico, repudiating President Trump’s characterization of a recent influx of Central American refugees and migrants as a national security crisis. The announcement comes just one day before the governor delivers his first State of the State address Tuesday, setting the stage for Newsom to counter Trump’s State of the Union address from last week.

    ANTELOPE WELLS — U.S. Border Patrol agents have arrested 290 Central Americans who entered the country illegally near a port of entry in a remote area of southwestern New Mexico. Customs and Border Protection said the migrants arrested early Friday near Antelope Wells, 122 miles west of El Paso, were from Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Honduras, and they included a boy who appeared to be ill and who was taken to a hospital for treatment. CBP said over 27 groups of more than 100 people have been apprehended in the area in the fiscal year that started Oct. 1.

    Five million Latin Americans plan to migrate to the United States in the next 12 months, and an estimated 42 million more say they want to enter the country. Those statistics were in a report from Jim Clifton, the chairman and CEO at Gallup: Forty-two million seekers of citizenship or asylum are watching to determine exactly when and how is the best time to make the move. This suggests that open borders could potentially attract 42 million Latin Americans. A full 5 million who are planning to move in the next 12 months say they are moving to the U.S....

    About 140 House Democrats voted “present” or against a resolution condemning localities across the United States for giving illegal aliens and noncitizens the right to vote in local elections. On Wednesday, about 71 Democrats and one Republican — Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) — voted against House Resolution 1071, which admonishes localities for giving illegal aliens and noncitizens voting rights. Another 69 House Democrats voted “present” on the resolution, while 49 Democrats joined 230 House Republicans to support the measure.
