3 Things That Trump Just Did That Are Absolutely Confounding The Pundits

With President Trump, you should always expect the unexpected. Just when you think that you have Trump all figured out, he will inevitably do something that completely surprises you, and this week there are three items in the news that are perfect examples of this. Each of these three items is confusing the experts, because in each case Trump is moving in a new direction that seems counter to what he had done previously.

The Pentagon wants to know how a border wall will improve troops’ ‘effectiveness’ before it contributes DoD dollars

The Pentagon has asked Department of Homeland Security to identify locations where border wall construction would improve the “effectiveness" of military troops deployed there, a key justification required to redirect military construction spending that would otherwise go to local base projects.

In a memo, dated Feb. 18, DoD asked DHS to identify “priorities for potential construction,” a U.S. official familiar with the memo’s contents told Military Times. Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan is asking for a priority list, as well as the data used to generate that priority list, to help him determine “what projects we support” and what could be delayed, the official said.

The Pentagon is looking at how it could spend military construction funds, or MILCON, to comply with President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency last week. Shanahan has not received a response yet from DHS, the official said.

Interview: Ron Paul and the Never-Ending Story of Empire

Today we stand on a point in the continuum, a possible inflection point in the direction the world will go. Embrace the tired and ugly Marxist filth that destroyed hundreds of millions of people in the twentieth century (and altered the trajectory of history) or reject it whole cloth and build new institutions learning from those incalculable mistakes and horrors.

Donald Trump has revealed himself to be a two-bit, tiny man with delusions of grandeur, the blackest of hearts and bad ideas. The only thing worse than him at this point is his opposition, those that erected this edifice of corruption, filth and death.

Where are the ‘empty shelves’? Max Blumenthal tours Caracas supermarket (VIDEO)

Corporate media grieve for the barren shelves and empty bellies in Venezuela, but are the alleged food shortages real? After touring a supermarket in Caracas, Max Blumenthal found plenty to buy – even craft beer.
“Grocery shelves lie empty as food becomes increasingly scarce” in Venezuela, the UK Independent weeps. The country’s shops remain open but “sparsely stocked,” The Guardian laments. Even “basic commodities” such as toothbrushes aren’t available for purchase, CNN bemoans. “Hungry” Venezuelans must choose between “torture or starvation,” Bloomberg grimly concludes. Mainstream media coverage of Venezuela gives the impression that President Nicolas Maduro is slowly starving his own people – a narrative which, as journalist Max Blumenthal found after surveying a massive supermarket in Caracas, is wildly deceptive.

The Empire: Now or Never

Many people I talk to seem to think American foreign policy has something to do with democracy, human rights, national security, or maybe terrorism or freedom, or niceness, or something. It is a curious belief, Washington being interested in all of them. Other people are simply puzzled, seeing no pattern in America’s international behavior. Really, the explanation is simple.

Maxine Waters: People Who Support the Wall Don’t Love This Country

Congresswoman Maxine Waters claims anybody who supports the construction of a wall at the southern border is not a patriot and, in fact, does not love America.

Waters was speaking at a rally to protest the President’s declaration of a national emergency to build the border wall. The rally was held outside Los Angeles City Hall.

“This president is trying to keep a campaign promise to all of those people that he swore he would build a wall!” she said, as if keeping campaign promises is a terrible thing.

“Those people who want the wall are not patriots,” Waters asserted. “They are not people who love this country, they are not people who stand up for what’s right!”

These 10 GOP Senators May Vote To Terminate Trump Border Emergency

As Congress prepares to pass a resolution to preemptively terminate President Trump's national emergency declaration before he can redirect some $7 billion in military and Treasury Department funding, lawmakers have said that the resolution will likely make it to Trump's desk, prompting what would be his first veto.

Of course, passing the resolution in the Senate would be impossible without the support of at least a handful of Republicans. And already, several have spoken out to criticize the decision for circumventing Congress, robbing the coffers of the military and setting a dangerous precedent.

McClatchy: Jared Kushner Asks Business for Immigration Plan

Jared Kushner is working with business groups to develop a pro-business immigration policy for approval by President Donald Trump in coming months, according to the McClatchy news service.
The news service reports:

President Donald Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law is operating on at least two tracks — the first is working with a small group studying specific ways to redistribute employment visas and the second is helping lead a series of “listening sessions” with about three dozen interest groups important to Trump to see if there is a position that Republicans can rally around before the 2020 elections.

Swedish-Hungarian War of Words Escalates as Minister Called 'Sick Creature'

Sweden and Hungary have been embroiled in a bitter quarrel after a Swedish cabinet minister made a controversial comparison between Budapest's pro-family policy and that of Nazi Germany.

The Hungarian ambassador to Sweden has been summoned to a meeting with representatives of the Foreign Ministry as part of the escalating verbal exchange of fire between the two nations.

The war of words broke out when Swedish Social Insurance Minister Annika Strandhäll compared Hungary's new pro-family policy, which includes complete tax exemption for mothers of four children, to Nazi Germany, claiming it "reeked of the 1930s". In turn, Hungarian Vice Prime Minister Zsolt Semjen called the Swedish minister a "poor sick creature" in a talk show on Echo TV.

25 MS-13 gang members deported from migrant caravan in Mexico, officials say

At least 25 people affiliated with the MS-13 gang were deported from Mexico after they were revealed to be concealed within the caravan of 1,600 Central American migrants just across the U.S. border, immigration officials said Tuesday.

The caravan first arrived in Piedras Negras, Mexico, two weeks ago across the border from Eagle Pass, Texas, when officials from the Instituto Nacional de Migración identified 10 gang members from Mara Salvatrucha, also known as MS-13.

But after warehouse scuffles with police last week, officials discovered and deported 15 additional MS-13 "agitators," INM Media Deputy Director Aline Juarez told Fox News.

In addition to the gang members, a total of 70 Central American migrants have been deported to their home countries, while about 1,500 have been granted humanitarian visas to move freely within Mexico.

Jobless Family Of 10 Has The Audacity To Demand a Mansion, Receives Interesting Response

Arnold and Jeanne Sube are originally from Cameroon in west Africa, the Express reported. They immigrated from Paris in 2012 with their eight children, and lived in a three-bedroom home that cost the state nearly $20,000 a year.

When the family was offered a home with two more bedrooms, the couple insisted the house was not large enough.

“People have to realize we are in the middle of a national housing crisis,” Councilor Tom Shaw said. “We have more than 10,000 people on the waiting list and 1,000 in temporary accommodation. This family are living in a large three-bed house. We managed to find them a large four-bed house and then a five-bed, which they turned down.”

Trump demands California repay $3.5 billion in 'Wasted' federal dollars for boondoggle shrunken bullet train project but Gov. Gavin Newsom insists president is getting revenge for wall lawsuit

President Donald Trump demanded California repay the government the $3.5 billion it received in federal funds for its failed bullet train while the state's governor claimed what the president really wants is 'political retribution.'

'California now wants to scale back their already failed “fast train” project by substantially shortening the distance so that it no longer goes from L.A. to San Francisco. A different deal and record cost overruns. Send the Federal Government back the Billions of Dollars WASTED!,' Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.

But Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom blasted it as a revenge move for California's lawsuit against the administration's border wall.

The verdict is in: Trump's a busted flush

If the analysis (by Ann Coulter and Pat Buchanan among others) of the latest Bill that Trump signed is accurate then indeed we can finally put the last nail in the coffin of the Trump Revolution. Because that Bill appears to expressly forbid the building of The Wall, contains a de facto amnesty and opens the door to massive future immigration abuse through 'family reunion', 'legal immigration' and other such loopholes. Nothing has been done about the H1B visa scam which is devastating the employment prospects of American STEM graduates and changing forever the demographic profile of the country.

President Trump sarcastically had predicted the lawsuit last week. He's slammed the Ninth Circuit multiple times as "disgraceful" and politically biased.

Who’s Behind the Green New Deal? Big Money Backs Ocasio-Cortez Socialist Dream Project

The Green New Deal blueprint introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was crafted by three far-left organizations and is being pushed by a coalition of well-funded professional progressive groups and known leftist agitators.

Some of the organizations helping to promote the Green New Deal have ties to financing from billionaire George Soros and trace their roots to such radical groups as Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter.

Earlier this month, Ocasio-Cortez posted an 11-page Google document in the form of a nonbinding legislative resolution that has become the most authoritative version of the Green New Deal, a broad outline for the current conception of the socialist-style plan.

U.S. Taxpayers Fund Border Walls in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt, and Lebanon

American taxpayers are continuing to fund border security measures and border walls in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt, and Lebanon with President Trump’s signing of a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spending bill.

While the United States-Mexico border received only $1.3 billion for construction of a border wall at the overwhelmed southern border with soaring illegal immigration, foreign countries are getting help from American taxpayers to secure their borders.

The Republican-Democrat spending bill signed by Trump last week provides Pakistan with at least $15 million in U.S. taxpayer money for “border security programs” as well as funding for “cross border stabilization” between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

EXCLUSIVE: Leaked Photos Show U.S. Border Facility Overwhelmed by Migrants

Leaked photos reveal the extent to which U.S. border facilities are being overwhelmed by the inflow of migrants from Central America and other nations. Breitbart exclusively obtained the photos that are reminiscent of the Obama-era border surge. The images depict a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) processing, detention, and transport facility at a U.S. port-of-entry in El Paso, Texas. According to the source of the images, the photos were taken on February 17, 2019.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Can anyone in the US government, begin to talk about this with a straight face, and tell me that there is no problem here?!?

Can any Democrat not talk about the real reason they want no border protection, and that is to allow illegal immigrants to vote, to shape the future trajectory of this country into a Thirdworldistan?!?

IF this is not, in fact, a true, national emergency, then I do not know what is.

Michael Savage, with whose work I have a hug and a punch (well, in my case, just a slight gentle touch on the shoulder, as I don't want to hurt anyone), has a trinity of values he believes all Americans should hold dear; and those, if I am remembering correctly, are "Border... language... and culture."

And I frankly think, in looking at these images, that the man is one hundred percent correct here.

Protesters take over Border Patrol museum, deface pictures of fallen agents

Dozens of demonstrators occupied and vandalized a privately owned U.S. Border Patrol museum near El Paso, Texas, over the weekend, according to the site's top official.

Museum director David Ham told the Washington Examiner his staff and guests worried for their safety Saturday when a group of about 50 rowdy protesters entered the facility, defaced property, and refused to leave the grounds.

"Say it loud, say it clear, Border Patrol kills!" group members standing inside and outside the facility yelled.

Pentagon chief says he'll make final call on wall money; Republicans hedge on cutting projects

Acting Defense Secretary Patrick M. Shanahan said this weekend that he will make the final call on $3.6 billion in military construction money that President Trump wants to build his border wall and quickly shot down the notion of raiding any funds meant to build or repair housing for troops and their families.

The Pentagon chief — who wouldn’t even commit to giving the White House all the money it wants under the president’s national emergency declaration — is pushing back as speculation swirls that key military projects at home and abroad could be on the chopping block.

Lawmakers in both parties spoke out forcefully Sunday to try to save projects that they say are now at risk, and the acting defense secretary seemed well-aware that he has been thrust into the middle of a politically charged battle that pits border security against military spending, two central priorities of the Republican Party.

Texas border agents keep catching rapists, child molesters, and gang members, but Democrats don’t care

On Tuesday, U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley sector of Texas apprehended a Guatemalan illegally crossing into the U.S. He had a prior conviction in New Jersey for sexually assaulting a child.

That same day, agents said they caught a Salvadoran who turned out to be a member of the violent MS-13 gang. The next day, they caught another Guatemalan who was also with MS-13.

These are the sweet angels whom Democrats have shown absolutely no interest in stopping from flooding into the U.S.

We know that by “border security,” they mean free healthcare and babysitting. We’re never, ever supposed to acknowledge the steady, unabated stream of rapists, gangs, and drug smugglers making their way into the country from Central America.

Khan’s London: Migrants Jailed for Beating Man to Death with Shears, Pick-axe Handles in Street

Three Romanian migrants have been imprisoned for beating a man to death with shears and pick-axe handles in the street in Ilford, London.

Fellow Romanian Sandel Serbu, 36, was ambushed by brothers Razvan Vladescu, 27, and Araman-Nardi Stoica, 25, and their relative Ionut Vasile, 28, according to an official statement from London’s Metropolitan Police Force.

The three men had tracked Serbu on a night out on November 12th 2017, apparently seeking revenge for an incident in which he had punched Vladescu at the Global night club on Ilford High Road.

German police is hiding facts about migrant crime statistics “to preserve civil peace”

The German newspaper Hannoversche Allgemeine recently raised the question if violent crime statistics are tweaked in the country.

A state police officer is quoted saying: “There is no lying, nothing is hushed, but things are deliberately left out.”

“There are orders to use our latitude of interpretation to preserve civil peace.”
The journalist Dieter Wonka met with the police officer, and now he knows specifically how the statistics are tweaked.

In a short video clip he states the following: “There is no written instruction to falsify the statistics. There are certain terms, for instance honour killings or sexual offenses, that if possible should not appear in reports.”

“In the case these terms do appear in police reports, from what I have understood, the police chief will make a written note on the report which says: ‘Please review this’.”

Trump Signs Amnesty Budget Bill For Millions Of IllegalsEncourages Millions More To Flood Into The US And Is Caught Bald-Faced Lying About Caravans That He Let In

President Trump lied to the nation today by falsely claiming his administration stopped multiple illegal alien caravans, when in truth, he let them into the USA. Speaking for 40 minutes, he never mentioning he just signed the dastardly and secretive budget bill which incentivizes illegal immigration and child trafficking.

Trump just signed into a law a bill that 99% of Americans know nothing about which contains Amnesty for millions of illegals, incentives for child trafficking, an expansion of Trump's deadly catch and release policies, less detention space for illegals, reductions of interior immigration law enforcement, new buildings and buses to bring more illegals into the US, raising of legal immigration levels, a measly 1.3 billion for border fences, and severe restrictions on where border barriers can be built.

Rush Limbaugh: Spending bill was effort by some Republicans to sabotage Trump

Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, speaking to "Fox News Sunday," charged that the compromise spending bill recently signed by President Trump to avert another partial government shutdown was little more than a disguised effort by some Republicans to torpedo his 2020 presidential candidacy.

"Both parties have people that are still trying to get rid of Donald Trump," Limbaugh said, asserting that Democrats are also working to guarantee a "permanent underclass of voters" who are "uneducated" and "don't even speak" English.

He continued: "I read this bill -- this spending bill, this bill is outrageous. [It includes] welcoming centers for newly arriving illegal aliens, and all kinds of medical care" -- a reference to the allocation of $192,700,000 in the bill's conference agreement to enhance medical care and transportation for illegal immigrants in U.S. custody, including to shelters run by nonprofits.

POTUS Trump using parts of Obama’s 2011 emergency declaration that included targeting a notorious Mexican drug cartel

As the ACLU, the state of California, congressional Democrats and other Leftists line up to sue POTUS Donald Trump for issuing a national emergency declaration on Friday, lost in the “establishment” media’s breathless reporting of all the ways the president is a bigoted jerk who is going to get his when the case makes it to federal court is the fact that there’s nothing new under the sun here.

Specifically, while the press is busy playing its normal role of Democrat Party propaganda machine, few are reporting that POTUS Trump’s declaration was practically ripped out of former President Barack Obama’s ‘national emergency on the border’ playbook.

First lawsuit against Trump wall declaration filed in Washington court

The first lawsuit was filed in federal district court in Washington, D.C., Friday evening challenging President Trump’s new emergency declaration to build his border wall.

Three Texas landowners and the Frontera Audubon Society in Texas asked a judge to halt any action Mr. Trump might take under the declaration, arguing that a fight with Congress over spending money doesn’t constitute an emergency under the 1970s-era National Emergencies Act.

The landowners say they’re in the path for future wall construction, while the Audubon Society says its members are bird-watchers who might see their favorite fowls chased out of the area by wall construction, impeding their ability to birdwatch.

The litigants said whatever justification Mr. Trump had for declaring an emergency disappeared earlier Friday when, in announcing his plans, the president said he could have waited and gotten the money over time from Congress.

Trump’s emergency declaration is legal and needed to protect America – Here’s why

President Trump took bold and decisive action in the best interests of the American people when he declared a national emergency Friday to enable construction of a badly needed barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border to stymie human trafficking, drug trafficking and criminal crossings.

The president’s move is a dramatic contrast to the radical position of Democrats supporting open borders and the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, a vital law enforcement organization that protects our national security.

President Trump’s national emergency declaration is well within his executive authority. Along with other executive action and a new spending bill passed by Congress, it will permit him to reallocate and aggregate $8.1 billion in funding for a barrier along our southern border

‘Communal Solidarity’: German, 74, Must Vacate Flat to Let Migrants In - Report

A 74-old senior social worker who helped with Germany’s migrant influx in 2015 must move out of the flat he has lived in for 24 years. A 1990s court ruling allows German municipalities to evict tenants to accommodate refugees if other options are exhausted.

Klaus Roth, a 74-year German national living in the municipality of Neckartailfingen, approximately 20 kilometers south of Stuttgart, must vacate the 150-square-meter apartment he has lived in for 24 years to accommodate Middle Eastern migrants, municipal authorities say, according to the Junge Freiheit newspaper.

Esslingen County has been assigned six new immigrants, in addition to 40 migrants already accommodated in the village.

The local council has reportedly decided to house the migrants in Roth's flat, Mayor Gerhard Gertitschke said in an interview for Nürtinger Zeitung. In order to allow that, Roth must move to an apartment half as big, the report says.

The U.S. should not only build a wall to defend its own country from criminal enterprises emanating from Mexico, but the U.S. should also pressure the Mexican government to stop crime at the source. Mexico should help pay for the damage that drug addiction and drug-related violence does to families. Mexico should own up to their crime-sponsoring gun laws, which create victims out of law-abiding citizens, while spreading organized crime and its violence into the great United States of America, where armed citizens must be more vigilant and on watch.

Gavin Newsom to Trump on National Emergency at Border: ‘See You in Court’

California Governor Gavin Newsom responded Friday to President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border to build a physical barrier there: “California will see you in court.”
In a statement, Newsom said:

President Trump is manufacturing a crisis and declaring a made-up ‘national emergency’ in order to seize power and subvert the constitution. This ’emergency’ is a national disgrace, and the blame lays solely at the feet of the President. Meanwhile, he plans to shutdown and divert funds used by California law enforcement that run counter-narcotics operations and fight drug cartels to build his wall. Our message back to the White House is simple and clear: California will see you in court.

US Senate & House approve spending & border security bill to avert gov’t shutdown

Both houses of the US Congress have passed a spending and border security bill, dodging a new government shutdown. Lacking the funds for President Trump’s border wall, the bill opens the door to him declaring a national emergency.

Passed by both the Republican-controlled Senate and Democrat-controlled House, the bill now moves to the White House. While Trump is expected to sign it, the president has made it clear he will declare a national emergency to get the funding for his wall. The bill provides just $1.375 for fencing at the US-Mexico border, a far cry from the $5.7 billion Trump requested.

Trump declares national emergency over border crisis

President Donald Trump has declared a national emergency, allowing him to build his long-promised border wall without congressional approval. Trump is also expected to sign a bill granting limited funding towards the wall.

Speaking to reporters outside the White House before the signing on Friday, Trump said he will declare a national emergency, a move that will allow him to corral funding from other parts of the government to fund the US-Mexico border wall.

“We’re declaring it for virtual invasion purposes,” Trump told reporters. “Drugs, traffickers and gangs.”

Here’s How Trump Plans to Get His $8 Billion For the Wall

President Trump is preparing to make a national emergency declaration that could allow him to spend up to $8 billion to construct a barrier at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Thursday that the President would both sign the recently approved budget compromise and declare the national emergency.

“I just had an opportunity to speak with President Trump and he’s prepared to sign the bill,” McConnell said. “He will also be signing a national emergency declaration at the same time.”

That move will reportedly free up the $8 billion Trump could then use to construct his wall. Where will he get that money?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem is that the spending bill has provisions in it to allow state and county governments along the border to refuse construction of the wall. Trump should read that bill thoroughly before he signs it.

Sweden’s minister compared Hungary’s new family assistance measures to Nazism

Sweden’s minister for social affairs compared Hungary’s new family assistance measures to Nazism. Foreign Minister Szijjarto hit back by criticising the Scandinavian country’s migration policy.

In a tweet, Annika Strandhall, the Swedish minister for social affairs, said that Hungary’s “alarming” policies were“reeking with the 1930’s”. She suggested the Hungarian prime minister, who seeks to promote the birth of “more true Hungarian” babies was a “right-wing populist trying to obscure the consequences of those policies to the independence women have earned”.

As Hungarian daily Magyar Hirlap reported, Strandhall approvingly shared an article by Aftonbladet. Another Swedish outlet, Sydsvenskan, also published an article with similar opinions. According to journalist Sofia Nerbrand, the pro-family action plan is offensive to women and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban should be ashamed after saying that he wants more Hungarian children instead of immigrants.

What the President Should Have Said

Let us imagine I had received a telegram from the White House, delivered by Western Union messenger riding a bicycle, requesting me to draft some remarks for the president for the occasion. Here’s what I would have him say:

Once again, the Left-wingers who run the Democratic Party have refused to defend America and its citizens from invasion. They demand that we leave our southern border open to anyone who wants to cross. Millions of people have come here illegally across the border and the Democrats want millions more to do so.

Donald Trump Delivers Speech on National Security, Border Wall

US President Donald Trump is delivering a speech on national security as he is expected to sign a bill to prevent another government shutdown and get money for the border wall with Mexico.

Speaking in Washington, DC, Trump said that he would certainly sign a state of emergency in order to get money for the border wall.

"I am going to be signing a national emergency," Trump, as he claimed illegal immigration marked "an invasion of our country."

McConnell: Trump will sign spending bill and declare national emergency

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Thursday on the Senate floor that President Trump told him he intends to sign the spending bill agreed to by Congress and declare a national emergency in order to get the rest of the funding for his border wall.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Best course of action. I can just imagine how the Democrats are howling.

Trump Has Lost on the Wall. Now He Can’t Win on Trade

President Donald Trump says he’s unenthusiastic about the spending package Congress has settled on to fund the government for the rest of the fiscal year. That’s no surprise. Although the details of the deal aren’t entirely clear, it certainly looks as if he’s wound up worse off than he would have if he had backed down in December and avoided the 39-day government shutdown. The new plan contains less money for fewer miles of new border barriers. Even if the administration gets more flexibility about where to spend the funds (also uncertain so far), the $1.375 billion in the package is nothing like the full $5.7 billion he had asked for. Or, as Greg Sargent puts it, this is basically a surrender.

Trump Puts Best Face on Border Deal, as Aides Try to Assuage an Angry Right

In pursuit of a wall, President Trump ran into one. A single-minded drive to force Congress to finance his signature campaign promise has left Mr. Trump right back where he started, this time seeking a way to climb over the political barrier in his way after trying to charge through it did not work.

As he inched closer to reluctantly accepting a bipartisan spending compromise without the money he demanded for his border wall, Mr. Trump offered no acknowledgment on Wednesday that his pressure tactics had failed even as aides sought to minimize the damage by tamping down criticism on the right.

One call was made to Lou Dobbs, a favorite of Mr. Trump’s whose Fox Business Network show he often tries to catch live. Another was placed to Sean Hannity, the Fox host who regularly talks with the president. The message: Mr. Trump deserved support because he still forced concessions that he would never have gotten without a five-week partial government shutdown.

Inside Kushner’s Budget Bill, Part 2: Twice as Much Money for ‘Refugee Assistance’ Than Border Wall

In the wee hours of Thursday morning, a budget bill so awful that it has the likes of #NeverTrump loser Rick Wilson claiming vindication, was introduced to Congress. Fortunately, Wilson is wrong about everything, otherwise this reporter would be a tad miffed.

Regardless, the bill, so bad that only the completely out-of-touch pencil pushers in Congress could have comprised it, is not ideal. That is not an opinion. It is an objective fact for those of us in the America First camp.

The second of the bill’s lowlights, after amnesty for those claiming a relationship with unaccompanied minors, is the fact that the bill provides nearly twice as much funding for “refugee assistance” as it does for building the wall, as noted by several conservative pundits.

Verhofstadt on a Roll, Calls Italian President ‘Puppet’ of Populists

Guy Verhofstadt has called Italy’s President Giuseppe Conte a “puppet” of the populist deputy prime ministers and said the country was suffering from “political degeneration.”

The remarks came during a heated exchange in the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France, on Tuesday after President Conte, an independent, gave a speech where he said that the EU had “lost contact” with Europe’s people and demanded Brussels come to a permanent solution to the migrant crisis, according to Politico.

Leftist and progressive MEPs launched attacks on Conte, with socialist grouping leader Udo Bullmann saying that Italy was heading “into political and economic isolation.”

Angel Families March on Nancy Pelosi’s Office: ‘Build That Wall’

Angel families stormed into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office again Wednesday with calls to secure the U.S. southern border, but they were turned away yet again.

Americans whose loved ones have been killed by illegal aliens flooded into the office with questions as to why their many requests for meetings with the Speaker went unanswered. Front office staff had little to offer in the way of an answer and wouldn’t give an idea of when so much as an aide would be available to meet with the families.

Ted Cruz Revives ‘EL CHAPO’ Bill to Pay for Border Wall

Following the conviction of Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman in a New York federal court on Tuesday, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) revived his call to pay for border wall construction with the assets seized from drug traffickers. The Texas senator first introduced the “EL CHAPO” Act in 2017.

“America’s justice system prevailed today in convicting Joaquín Guzmán Loera, aka El Chapo, on all 10 counts,” Senator Cruz said in a tweet on Tuesday. He said that prosecutors are seeking the seizure of $14 billion in “drug profits and other assets” from the jailed drug lord and that those funds should go toward building the border wall.

Trump’s Border Wall Is Currently Being Built

I checked in with agents at the Rio Grande Valley border sector to see if they knew what new “wall” Trump was talking about. They sent me information on construction for new border barrier announced last year. The project funds six miles-worth of concrete and steel barrier of the sort that agents told me in January is immensely successful in deterring illegal border crossings.
The wall will be supplemented by “detection technology, lighting, video surveillance, and an all-weather patrol road parallel” to the barrier, according to a release sent out by the CBP in November.

Authorities say suspect in suitcase death is in US illegally

Federal immigration authorities say a man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and dumping her body in a suitcase in Connecticut is a citizen of Portugal and is in the U.S. illegally.

Officials with Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Wednesday that Javier Da Silva Rojas entered the United States in May 2017 through a visa waiver program and was supposed to leave the country later that year.

Da Silva is charged with kidnapping resulting in death in connection with the killing of 24-year-old Valerie Reyes. Her body was found in a suitcase in Greenwich on Feb. 5.

Soldiers of Odin Declare Hunt for Rapists, Paedophiles Amid Finland Sex Attacks

The vigilantes' recent video, in which they claimed Finland to be overrun by "sex tourists" has arrived amidst a grooming gang scandal which has implicated immigrants and asylum-seekers from the Middle East.

The Finnish police and the National Prosecutor General's Office are investigating whether the new Soldiers of Odin video, in which they declare a hunt for rapists and paedophiles, constitutes hate speech and instigation to violence, the Finnish daily newspaper Hufvudstadsbladet reported.

In the video, which is provided with English and Arabic subtitles, the group claims that it has made false profiles in social media, posing as young girls. With the help of the profiles, the group seeks to reveal men in search of sexual contact with young girls on the web.

Trump cool to border deal; plan pays for fencing, not a wall

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he was "not happy" about the bipartisan border security compromise negotiated by congressional leaders, but he gave no indication whether he would sign it before the midnight Friday deadline and avoid another government shutdown.

In his first comments since learning details of the deal, Trump said he would have to study it more before deciding what to do. The compromise includes $1.375 billion for new fencing along the border, far short of the $5.7 billion he demanded for a wall -- and less even than the deal that he rejected in December, triggering a 35-day partial government shutdown.

Hands off ‘our hemisphere’ or Venezuela pays the price: US Senator warns Russia

This is pathetic. Without Venezuela and their gold the district of criminals is finished!

The US staked a claim on half the world, as Senate Armed Services Committee chair Jim Inhofe said Washington might have to intervene in Venezuela if Russia dares set up a military base not just there, but “in our hemisphere.”
“I think that it could happen,” Inhofe (R-Oklahoma) told a group of reporters on Tuesday. “You’ve got a guy down there that is killing everybody. You could have him put together a base that Russia would have on our hemisphere. And if those things happen, it may be to the point where we’ll have to intervene with troops and respond.”

Tech Elites, Donor Class Unite with GOP/Dems to Outsource White-Collar American Jobs

A plan known as the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act, introduced in the Senate by Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Kamala Harris (D-CA), as well as Reps. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) and Ken Buck (R-CO), would eliminate the U.S. country caps in the legal immigration system and would fast-track outsourcing of white-collar American jobs to mostly Indian and Chinese nationals imported to the country by businesses, outsourcing firms, and multinational corporations.

The country caps were originally implemented to prevent any one country from monopolizing the legal immigration system. Eliminating the country caps would immediately fast-track up to 300,000 green cards, and eventually American citizenship, to primarily Indian nationals in the U.S. on the H-1B visa, so long as they agree to take high-paying, white-collar jobs from Americans.

George Soros Panics: Right-Wing Parties Rising All Over Europe Will Lead to 'Oblivion'

Billionaire globalist George Soros, who helped fund the migrant invasion of Europe to the tune of some $500 million, is now panicking over the rise of right-wing parties throughout the EU.

Rather than take responsibility for his actions, apologize to the people of Europe and start a fund to deport all the migrants he paid to bring in, he has instead chosen to fearmonger that the end is nigh if Europeans actually start voting in their own self-interest.

“I fancied myself as some kind of god …” he wrote. “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble.“ When asked by Britain’s Independent newspaper to elaborate on that statement, Soros doubled down: “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.“

Trump Says “I Can’t Say I’m Thrilled” with Reported Border-Security Compromise

A border-security compromise bill is being floated in Congress that would include $1.375 billion for physical barriers at the U.S.-Mexico border, which President Trump doesn’t seem to think is enough.

“I can’t say I’m happy,” Trump said to reporters Tuesday. “I can’t say I’m thrilled.”

Trump is seeking over $5 billion to fund a border wall, something Democrats continue to oppose. The President is meeting with lawmakers to discuss the compromise plan to avoid another government shutdown scheduled for 11:59 PM Friday if an agreement can’t be reached.

Trump: Walls Are ‘Moral,’ Other Technology Doesn’t ‘Mean a Thing’

Building a border wall is “moral” and is “not a bad thing” at all — despite what many Democrats would have Americans think, President Donald Trump said Monday night during an exclusive interview that aired on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

The wall “has nothing to do with anything other than safety for the Americans, safety for our people, safety for our country,” Trump told Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

“And a wall is a very good thing — not a bad thing. It’s a moral thing, to put it in the opposite terms. And we have tremendous support,” Trump added.

Trump spoke with Ingraham just before taking the stage at his overflow rally in El Paso, Texas — a city just across the border from Ciudad Juárez in Mexico. It was the president’s first campaign-style rally of 2019.

Possible Budget Deal Falls Short of Trump’s Demands

President Donald Trump soon could be getting a budget proposal that doesn’t include his demands to fully fund a border security wall, according to reports late Monday.

Trump was just about to participate in a rally in El Paso, Texas, on Monday night when he heard that a tentative deal was reached.

Congressional negotiators have been meeting for the past couple of weeks to try to avert another partial government shutdown. Negotiators reached a deal late on Monday that includes $1.375 billion to build 55 miles of new border barriers, the Associated Press reported in the evening.

Trump is unlikely to sign such a proposal if he sticks by his demand for $5.7 billion to build over 200 miles of wall along the southern border.

The funds will also be for vertical steel slats called bollards, instead of for a solid concrete wall.

Sean Hannity Warns Republicans Not to Accept ‘Garbage’ Border Wall Proposal

Fox News host Sean Hannity slammed a tentative border-wall funding agreement and urged Republicans not to accept the “garbage” compromise.

Late Monday, reports surfaced that congressional Democrats and Republicans had reached an “agreement in principle” on funding for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall.

The deal reportedly includes $1.375 billion for physical barriers and a 17 percent drop in the number of ICE beds, a newfound request of Democrats seeking to control how the agency conducts the business of enforcing the law within our country.

California's New Governor To Pull Troops From Border To Protest Trump's "Manufactured Crisis"

In the ultimate signaling of virtue - in favor of illegal immigrants and against the safety of Americans - newly-elected Democrat California Governor Gavin Newsom, desperate for some distraction from the state's likely bailout of PG&E, has decided to withdraw nearly 400 of his state’s National Guard troops from deployment along the border with Mexico and assign them to other duties, according to aides to the governor.

Making Globalism Great Again - Did Trump Fold To The Deep State?

Maybe Donald Trump isn’t as stupid as I thought. I’d hate to have to admit that publicly, but it does kind of seem like he has put one over on the liberal corporate media this time. Scanning the recent Trump-related news, I couldn’t help but notice a significant decline in the number of references to Weimar, Germany, Adolf Hitler, and “the brink of fascism” that America has supposedly been teetering on since Hillary Clinton lost the election. I googled around pretty well, I think, but I couldn’t find a single editorial warning that Trump is about to summarily cancel the U.S. Constitution, dissolve Congress, and proclaim himself Führer. Nor did I see any mention of Auschwitz, or any other Nazi stuff … which is weird, considering that the Hitler hysteria has been a standard feature of the official narrative we’ve been subjected to for the last two years.

George Soros hits the panic button as the EU starts to break up and his globalist dreams crumble.

Europe is sleepwalking into oblivion, and the people of Europe need to wake up before it is too late.

If they don’t, the European Union will go the way of the Soviet Union in 1991. Neither our leaders nor ordinary citizens seem to understand that we are experiencing a revolutionary moment, that the range of possibilities is very broad, and that the eventual outcome is thus highly uncertain.

Most of us assume that the future will more or less resemble the present, but this is not necessarily so. In a long and eventful life, I have witnessed many periods of what I call radical disequilibrium. We are living in such a period today.

In El Paso, Trump and O’Rourke go head-to-head over wall

President Donald Trump charged ahead Monday with his pledge to build a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border, skimming over the details of lawmakers’ tentative deal that would give him far less than he’s been demanding and declaring he’s “setting the stage” to deliver on his signature campaign promise.

In the first dueling rallies of the 2020 campaign season, Trump’s “Finish the Wall” rally in El Paso went head-to-head against counterprogramming by former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, a former Democratic congressman and potential Trump rival in 2020, who argued that walls cause more problems than they solve.

The rallies across the street from each other served as a preview of the heated yearslong fight over the direction of the country that has now begun in earnest. And they made clear that Trump’s long-promised border wall is sure to play an outsized role in the presidential race, as both sides use it to try to rally their supporters and highlight their contrasting approaches.

Lawmakers have a tentative deal to avoid a shutdown — but Trump isn't backing it just yet

A congressional source told CNBC it would put about $1.4 billion toward physical barriers, but not a wall. It would include about 55 new miles of bollard fencing. The agreement would also reduce the cap for Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention beds by about 17 percent from the current 49,057 to 40,520, according to the source.

Only 55 miles? So the people smugglers have to drive another hour.

Hungary Shows the West the Path to Survival

A specter is haunting the European Union—the specter of Eastern Europe. Hungary is a country slightly more populous than Virginia, and its population diminishes slightly every year. It receives substantial subsidies from richer EU countries, produces nice wines, but has little industry not tied to German auto plants. Its military has roughly zero external intervention capability.

And yet in Europe, Hungary is always in the headlines. The glossy French center-right weekly Le Point warns with alarm that Hungary’s president Viktor Orbán “outlines the shape of another Europe.” A few months ago, the European Parliament subjected Orbán’s government to a sort of trial under “Article 7,” a process that could lead to Hungary being denied its parliamentary voting rights. Le Point (again) speaks ominously of a menacing “axis” between Poland, Hungary, and the new populist government of Italy.

Pro-Europe majority must wake up before the continent sleepwalks into oblivion and the EU vanishes like the USSR, says billionaire financier George Soros

George Soros has called for pro-Europe voters to wake up before the continent 'sleepwalks into oblivion' ahead of the looming European elections.

Writing in an article for business website MarketWatch, billionaire businessman Soros said the EU faced going the way of the Soviet Union if people didn't act to save it.

'Europe is sleepwalking into oblivion, and the people of Europe need to wake up before it is too late,' Soros wrote.
