RINO Round-Up Against Trump Border Security-Blood On Their Hands!

See the source image

  • Feckless McConnell Failed to Hold the Senate for the President! 

  • Not a Vote on Principle But On Reaffirmation of RINO Opposition to the President!

  • Only Collins up for Re-Election in the Senate in 2020.  Collins needs to be Primaried!

  • All House Members up for Re-Election in 2020!

Below is a list of the House and Senate Republicans who FAILED to vote for the President’s Emergency Declaration to build the wall on the Southern Border in light of a massive illegal invasion at the border, countless criminals entering illegally, massive amounts of drugs being smuggled across the border, and the sick scourge of human trafficking these House and Senate Republicans now are responsible for!

  • Any American Killed, raped, assaulted, robbed or otherwise abused by an Illegal Alien now is the fault of these Republicans.
  • Any American dying of a drug overdose from the drugs coming over the Southern border is the fault of these Republicans.
  • Any illegal alien child sexually abused trying to enter the US is the fault of these Republicans.
  • Any person smuggled over the Southern border and enslaved into human trafficking is now the fault of these Republicans.

All of these House and Senate Members should be Voted Out of Office during their next Re-Election!

Lame Excuses by Lame, gutless Republican RINOs!

Some of these poor excuses for Americans had the guts to try to say that they were standing on “principle” when defying the President!  They alleged that only Congress has the Power of the Purse!  But, Congress gave the President the Power of the Purse in 1976 for Emergency situations like the one that exists on our Southern Border!  If these gutless wonders thought the 1976 Presidential Emergency Powers act was unconstitutional, THESE JERKS HAD 43 YEARS TO REPEAL THEIR OWN LAW!  Where were their “principles” the last 58 times national emergencies were declared by Presidents!  

This is just a RINO Rodeo of spineless swamp creatures who don’t care if American Citizens are killed or sexually assaulted.

Mitch McConnell Has to Go

The real problem in the Senate is the Senate Republican Leadership led by Senator Mitch McConnell.  McConnell is up for re-election in 2020 and HE HAS TO BE PRIMARIED OUT OF OFFICE!  Why?  Just ask yourself, “How come Democrats vote in lockstep with their leadership on key votes such as this one to defeat the Republicans but Republicans never stick together to defeat the Democrats?”  

BECAUSE THE DEMOCRAT LEADERSHIP WOULD TELL THEIR MEMBERS THAT IF THEY DON’T WANT TO BE PRIMARIED IN THE NEXT ELECTION AND WANT MONEY AND SUPPORT FOR THEIR NEXT RE-ELECTION, THEN THEY HAVE TO VOTE THE WAY LEADERSHIP WANT THEM TO!  

McConnell and the RINOs have no spine and give in every single time.  What happened to the repeal of Obamacare.  What happened to the $25 Billion McConnell and Ryan promised Trump in Trump’s first two years in office? 

The only people the House and Senate Republicans do NOT FEAR is us, the Republican Voters!

RINOs Resurrected and Strike At Trump-McConnel Head RINO

Who Needs Enemies

With A “Friend” Like Mitch!

Not only did McConnell and the RINO led Senate vote to rebuke Trump’s Syria and Afghanistan troop reduction decision, these traitors did it on the day of Trump’s State of the Union Address!  Senate Bill 1, that passed by a 77-23 vote, includes:

  • Directs Trump to Impose Sanctions on Entities Doing Business with Syrian President Al-Assad
  • “Urges” Trump Not to Exit the Conflicts in Syria and Afghanistan
  • Includes Aid for Israel
  • Allows State and Local governments to refuse to do business with anyone who boycotts Israel.
  • To totally insult, “throw shade” for those under 30, at the President, McConnell allowed this bill to pass on the day of Trump’s State of the Union address.

In case you missed it, the name of the bill is “Senate Bill 1”, which means that this is the first bill that the new REPUBLICAN RINO SENATE had passed in the new 2019 session.  An omen for things to come?  Most in this Senate and the House, would have trouble finding Syria and Afghanistan on a map let alone direct policy.  They, instead, hide behind so-called civilian, think tank and military “experts” to cover their respective asses and go against the President of the United States. 

All the while, McConnell and his RINOs have steadfastly refused to dump the undemocratic practice of requiring 60 votes to pass anything through the Senate except for the overabundance of verbal and anal FLATULENCE!  

See the source image

The timing of this bill passing on the day of the SOTU address, was timed and intentional.  This bunch of wimps and do-nothings think they are going to preempt the President and take his talking points away on these key foreign policy issues.  WRONG!  My hope is that the President take both the Republican RINOs and the moronic Democrats on directly and state exactly what he is going to do again in these theaters of conflict as he has in the past.  I also hope he pulls McConnell in and tells him point-blank that he will not stand for McConnell to stand in for Flake, McCain and Ryan as the Anti-Trump leader in the Senate.  That if McConnell expects any help in the future that he damn well better wake up and understand that the Democrats and the hard-left are the enemies of the United States and not the President.

State of the Union 2019: Trump addresses the nation - live updates

I hope everyone contacts Senator McConnell and tells him that you think he is a traitor to the Republican Party, Donald Trump, and those of us who support President Trump and his policies.  You can call his Washington DC  office at Phone: (202) 224-2541
Fax: (202) 224-2499 or send him a letter or postcard to,   317 Russell Senate Office Building, Washington, DC 20510.

These Senators have absolutely no direct responsibility for our Foreign Policy and will duck for cover should this bill actually cause more of our brave soldiers to lose their lives.  Maybe they should read Article 2 of the US Constitution and understand that it is not their role to micro manage our foreign policy.  God knows Congress has enough power to screw things up in the US and this is not one of them!  You might say that this wimpy resolution to keep troops in Syria and Afghanistan is not binding.  That may be true but it undermines the positions taken by the President with the American People.  RINO-MAC may have forgotten but We the American People elected the President and expect him to have the support of at least our own party.

Many of these same Senators voted to get us into these never-ending wars with no real objective or rules of engagement to actually win and protect our most prize asset, the American Soldier.  Did they all of a sudden gain cerebral supremacy.  I think not!

Trump Border Wall National Emergency Declaration-The Facts!

Congress Doth Protest To Much!

Confused by all of the so-called legal analysts on TV, including the sour grapes Judge Napolitano on Fox, (Napolitano apparently is holding a grudge as Trump picked Kavanagh over him) regarding the possible Emergency Declaration by President Trump to fund and build-out the wall on the Southern Border?  Then you get to listen to all of the Congress men and women, who know virtually nothing about federal law and the US Constitution (scary thought), say that Trump would be setting bad precedent, and the funding and build-out of the border wall is solely within the power of Congress or that this action by the President would be met with lawsuits and is a “fool’s errand”.

Is The Southern Border Illegal Immigration a Crisis?”

To hear the Democrats, Left-Wing-Media, RINOs and others, the Southern Border is just fine and while the murdering of a US residents by an illegal alien is “tragic”, it does not add to the designation of the border situation being  a CRISIS.  Recently, I posted an article “Why a Border Wall is ABSOLUTELY Necessary”, Link: https://wp.me/pY51c-1f5.  Some of the justifications that I cited included date published by DHS for 2017-2018:

Drug Smuggling:  Methamphetamines:  38% Increase; Heroin (Opioids):  22% Increase; Fentanyl:  73% Increase

Drug Smuggling Seizures by Border Patrol: 282,000 Lbs. Cocaine; 248,000 Lbs. Methamphetamines; 6,500 Lbs. Heroin (opioids); 2,400 Lbs. Fentanyl; 7,000,000 Lbs. Narcotics Seized In Total In 2018

Terrorists, Gangs, and Criminals Arrested: 3,755 Known Terrorists; 6,000 Gang Members; 17,000 Adults with Existing Criminal Records; Criminal Organizations Make $2.5 Billion in Profit Each Year from Migrant Smuggling!

Rise in Vulnerable Populations Overwhelming Resources: 60,000 Unaccompanied Children-Increase of 25%; 161,000 Family “Units”-Increase pf 59%; 2,000% Increase in Asylum Claims even though 72% do not qualify for Asylum! Over 2,000 Persons Per Day (730,000/yr annualized) are Captured at the Border.  These cannot be deported because of “Catch and Release”.

Depth of Humanitarian Crisis at Southern Border: 50 Migrants/Day Referred to Medical Providers; 4,300/Yr People in Distress Rescued by CBP; 31% of Women Sexually Assaulted on Journey; 17% of Men Sexually Assaulted on Journey; 70% of Migrants Traveling are Victims of Violence.

If all of the so-called experts do not think that we have a genuine Crisis at the Southern Border, then consider some of the Emergency Declarations that are STILL ACTIVE that have been declared by Presidents since Jimmy Carter and none, to my knowledge were ever challenged seriously by Congress or challenged in court by so-called aggrieved parties.  (For a total list of active declarations, scroll down to bottom of this article)

Presidential Authority to Declare a National Emergency Via the National Emergencies Act of 1974

Congress, yes those petulant morons that appear on TV every minute decrying Trump’s illegal and unconstitutional actions, GRANTED BROAD POWERS to the President Under the National Emergencies Act of 1976.  According to Elizabeth Goitein of the Brennan Center for Justice’s Liberty and National Security Program, the President has broad powers as she stated:  “So if he can really just sign his name to a piece of paper, whether it is a real emergency or not, that creates a state of emergency that gives him access to these special powers that are contained in more than 100 different provisions of law that Congress has passed over the years.”  Further she stated, “Congress chose not to put any substantial or really any barriers on the president’s ability to declare a national emergency.”

So, Congress has an “Aw Shi#” moment.  Their original law granting the President far-reaching emergency powers included the provision that the House could pass a resolution by simple majority and the Senate could affirm the resolution by simple majority and the President COULD NOT VETO THE RESOLUTION DECLARING HIS EMERGENCY DECLARATION AS VOIDTo bad for Congress, the pesty Supreme Court ruled in 1984 that the President had CONSTITUTIONAL powers to veto any Congressional Legislation, including this act, and that Congress could only THWART THE VETO BY A 2/3rds VOTE OF BOTH HOUSES!    So, if President Trump declares that the Southern Border is an emergency and poses a threat to American Sovereignty, and/or, it is creating a humanitarian crisis, and/or it is endangering Americans by flooding drugs into our communities, and/or, it is promoting human trafficking, the House and Senate would have to have enough votes to overturn a Trump Veto if they attempt to invalidate his declaration!

Jonathon Turley quoted the Congressional Research Center when it wrote in 2007, “Under the powers delegated by such statutes, the president may seize property, organize and control the means of production, seize commodities, assign military forces abroad, institute martial law, seize and control all transportation and communication, regulate the operation of private enterprise, restrict travel, and, in a variety of ways, control the lives of United States citizens.”

Further, Congress has passed laws that allow the President to tap the military to design and contract for the wall and that any Such projects may be undertaken only within the total amount of funds that have been appropriated for military construction, including funds appropriated for family housing, that have not been obligated.” Will the Democrats sue?  Absolutely!

Those that claim Trump should not issue the declaration as it would set a bad precedent are too late.  Congress has already lost this battle by “self-emasculation” via their own legislation.  Obama has already used non-existent executive powers to rewrite immigration law and granting status to DACA recipients.  Any good Left-Wing Progressive cares less about precedent!  

Who has “Standing” in Court to Sue Trump Over the Declaration

In terms of the declaration itself, since Congress passed the law, it would have some level of standing (the right to sue as an aggrieved  party) and attempt to invalidate the President’s declaration.  But, CONGRESS BUILT INTO THE LAW THE METHOD WHEREBY THE CONGRESS COULD CHALLENGE THE PRESIDENT VIA RESOLUTIONS THAT ARE SUBJECT TO A VETO!  The Democrats in Congress could file a suit to invalidate the declaration, but it would probably not be upheld by the Supreme Court as Congress gave up their standing within their own legislation!

Eminent Domain:  Some argue the landowners along the border who have not sold or granted access easements to the Federal Government where the wall would be built, would have standing to sue the Trump Administration citing the National Emergency Declaration as being harmful to the value of their real and personal property. BUT!  The procurement of these lands is subject to negotiation or legal proceedings via Eminent Domain.  The latter action and procedures are subject to their own statutes and remedies and do not necessarily provide standing against the National Emergency declaration.  The Federal Government would either have to negotiate access rights or an outright land purchase from such landowners or use Eminent Domain to procure the land.  While the landowners may sue citing the declaration, there is a slim chance the Supreme Court would deem their standing valid.  

Timing of the Legal Actions and Impact on Building the Wall

Once Trump issues the emergency declaration, the lawsuits will start. 

  • A Democrat Friendly Federal District Court would probably issue a cease and desist order against the declaration that would be immediately challenged by the Trump Administration. 
  • If the challenge does not cause the Federal Court to reverse the injunction, the Administration would appeal the lower court decision. 
  • The first action would have probably been filled within notorious the 9th District. 
  • The 9th District Court of Appeals would probably uphold the lower court’s injunction. 
  • The Administration would have to then appeal to the Supreme Court. 
  • The Administration could appeal the original decision directly to the Supreme Court, by passing the appellate court, but they tend not to short-circuit the appeal process through the lower courts.  

This process could take anywhere from 3 months to two years!  But, the Army Corps of Engineers could begin the design of the project; the property procurement could commence; and contacts could be developed.  It is doubtful that the Administration would drop everything and wait on the lawsuits!  

Trump, and his supporters, don’t have much to lose.  The Democrats are not going to fund the wall at this point and may not up through the 2020 elections. 

At least declaring an emergency could get the ball rolling and Trump has enough discretion to begin the process.  Right now it is a game of chicken and we will see who blinks first. 

Trump is looking for existing funding within the impacted agencies to make payroll.  If he does this, he can pretty much wait out the Democrats!  He already appears to be the only adult in the negotiations as Chuck and Nancy have only sat on their hands.  Time will tell.

Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate Shot and Killed Police Officer Corporal Singh!

Corporal Ronil Singh of the Newman, California police force was shot and killed by all of the members of the 115th Congress from both sides of the aisle.  This Congress may have well tied him to a tree and shot him dead themselves!  Why?  They are gutless to protect the citizens of this country and build a damn wall to keep out illegal aliens.  Last year, over 7 million illegal aliens were denied gun ownership by the FBI via their background check process.  How many were able to illegally obtain firearms is unknown!  

The picture above was taken showing Officer Singh with his wife Anamika and 5 month old baby just hours prior to his shooting by an illegal alien following a traffic stop.  

The Newman police force is typical of a small San Joaquin Valley force and consisted only of 12 officers.  I grew up about 30 miles from Newman and was a Mayor overseeing a similarly sized force.  I know that this killing is personal to the community, the department, and will be seared into the hearts and minds of everyone in the surrounding area.

The Newman Police Chief, Randy Richardson’s emotional depiction of Officer Singh brings home the impact of this tragedy when he shared:

“This is not a big department. This is a department of 12. This is a man who I saw every day he worked.  This is a man who I relieved on Christmas day so he could go home and spend time with his family and his newborn child.  I think what’s being lost here is yes, he was a police officer, and that’s why all of you are packed in this room because he was tragically taken from us.  But what really needs to be known is that he was truly just a human being and an American patriot.  He came to this country (Legally from Fiji) with one purpose and that was to serve this country.  When I sat with him in the chief’s interview, he told me he came to America to become a police officer. That’s all he wanted to do. He truly loved what he did. You’ve never seen a man smile more than him.”

We all choked up as Chief Richardson continued:

“He was proud to wear the uniform, and he does want to be remembered as a police officer, but don’t forget the other things, the little things that are often times forgotten in these stories.  That his five-month-old, he will never hear talk. He will never see his son walk. He doesn’t get to hold that little boy, hug his wife, say goodnight, anymore. Because a coward took his life.”

I am not as gracious as Chief Richardson as I would add that his life was taken by a coward, but that coward was aided and abetted by the 115th US Congress as they failed to protect our borders and our citizens by allowing illegal aliens into this country and to cower in a Sanctuary State, California, who is equally as responsible for Office Singh’s untimely demise.  I’ll add the Left-Wing media to this indictment in their support for open borders in aiding and abetting the maintenance of lax immigration laws and practices. This Congress spends trillions of dollars each year to support the sovereignty of foreign nations while failing to:

  • Build a border wall on our southern border to prevent 99.999% of illegal aliens from crossing illegally into this country.  (2 Years after Israel built its southern wall, the illegal immigration went from 55,000 to 0 in two years!  Walls do work)
  • Stop “Catch and Release” which is de facto amnesty for illegal aliens living in sanctuary jurisdictions.
  • Stop illegal aliens from claiming amnesty and entering our country fraudulently and permanently and be supported by our tax paying citizens.
  • Stop chain migration which allows for exponentially increasing the number of migrants entering this country above and beyond our stated immigration goals.
  • Hold Sanctuary States and Cities responsible for any act of violence perpetrated by illegal aliens hiding in their jurisdiction and to withhold all federal funding from those entities until they comply with Federal DOJ, ICE and CBP detainer requirements.

Every Congress man and women should have to meet Officer Singh’s wife Anamika, and her son before voting to stop the building of a southern border wall and enacting common sense laws governing immigration, legal and illegal, into this country,  They should all look in the eyes of this young women and her son and explain to them why they failed to protect their husband and father and continue to pursue political self-interests over protecting our borders and its citizens.

Congress, you are pathetically worthless!

@RDPierini

The Left Has Trump Right Where He Wants Himself for 2020!

You are witnessing a crescendo of Media, DOJ, FBI, Swamp, and RINO attacks against President Trump.  Pelosi and Reed are circling their collective toilet bowl in joining the fray.  The goal, to kill any chances of Trump being a two term President.  Their goal, to make sure no one from the private sector ever try to run against the Progressive-Left swamp agenda.  Their goal, to stop President Trump’s America First agenda and reset the Progressive-Left/Obama Globalist/Socialist dominance.  To put America in its “rightful place” as subservient to our enemies.

In order to view this from Trump’s perspective, go back to the 2016 campaign and ask yourself who supported candidate Trump and who opposed candidate Trump?  Trump’s support came from you, middle-class Americans who were tired of being told you are not doing enough for the world while you witnessed Republicans and Democrats pairing with the global Progressive-Left media,  global businesses and governments to rob you and your children of your American Heritage.  You saw those same Anti-American traitors do everything in their power to negate a phrase from our Declaration of Independence that we all hold dear:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”  

So where is President Trump in this current onslaught to take him out and to destroy him and his family completely?

President Trump is fighting every single minute of every single day for you and your family.  He is continuing to fight to deliver the promises you asked him to keep to ensure that our children continue to have the ability to pursue their personal, spiritual and economic happiness.  He is the lone barrier to a complete world dominance of the United States and a takeover by globalist powers.  He stands alone against a Progressive-Left media and both Republican and Democrat politicians who are in sync in their efforts to stop Trump’s America First.  Just ask yourself, how many Republicans are actually fighting to support President Trump and your interests?  Not many and even those who once in a while support us also bend with the wind and oppose us and President Trump! 

Today, the Progressive Left is constantly accusing President Trump of Colluding with the Russians to harm America, Obstructing Justice by firing the disgraced Jim Comey, Obstructing Justice by firing AG Jeff Sessions, Obstructing Justice by opposing the Mueller Witch Hunt, criminal Federal Election Law abuses by paying off two women alleging sexual improprieties even though these actions began in 2014, one and a half years before Trump announced his candidacy, and investigations of the Trump Foundation for various alleged unlawful actions.  There are more but suffice it to say that the entire federal bureaucracy, the DOJ and the FBI, State Attorneys General,  the media, and both political parties are using every tactic they can to Stop Trump!

Trump is standing firm and fighting back with everything he has at his disposal.  The DOJ/FBI/Mueller are using despicable tactics to coerce cooperation from anyone Trump has ever met to get to Trump.  Trump is standing firm on his agenda and fights every day to accomplish your America First aspirations.  Trump is taking his fight directly to his foes and is relying on you to stand with him against the rest of the world!

Trump 2020 Tactic

Trump will use all of those aligned against him as cut outs to attack their agenda to take America Down.  He will use all of those aligned against him to draw the contrast between America First and those who embrace taking America Down.  He will use every tool at his disposal to fight back for your benefit.  He cannot be defeated as long as you stand behind him!  Trump is strong and believes his supporters are as well.

Border Wall:  Trump is disappointed, to put it mildly, that a Republican led Congress would not fund the border wall and make the immigration law changes that he supports.  He INTENTIONALLY let the House fend for itself in the mid-terms so he could purge as many anti-Trump RINOs as he could from the house.  Now, he is using the border wall funding to force the Democrats and RINOs to stand up and be counted as opposing the Wall and our national security.  Trump will build the wall even if he has to pull funds from other federal agencies or the military under the banner of national security.  He will use this fight as a cornerstone of his 2020 campaign and to campaign for Republican House and Senate candidates who support his border security policies.

Foreign Policy:  The Progressive-Left is hammering the President for supporting our national interests in not turning his back on Saudi Arabia in spite of the death of the Saudi, Muslim Brotherhood, Washington Post reporter.  If Trump had turned his back on Saudi Arabia, then Iran would be bolstered up and weaken Trump’s effort for a domestically sponsored regime change.  Any chance for a Middle East peace plan would also go by the wayside without Saudi Arabian backing.  They will do everything the can to support China against the “Trump Trade War” which will not only hurt our economy and our workers but throw a monkey wrench in the middle of Trump’s Korean Denuclearization efforts.  Make no mistake, all of Trump’s America First foreign policy efforts are diametrically opposed by the Global Progressive-Left!

Economy:  Trump will continue to support his pro-growth agenda and fight for every single job in America.  He will fight to make sure that every American has a chance to pursue their happiness.  He will not be able to make the past rounds of middle class tax cuts permanent with a Pelosi led House but he can hold the line against any effort to reverse his economic successes.  Be aware though, that Wall Street is NOT Pro-Trump and will do everything the can to convince you that Trump is pushing us into a recession.  Why, they are 100% global oriented and see America as a cow they can milk to feed their global interests!  They will do everything they can to hurt the stock market as a rise in stock prices makes Trump look good!  Trump will continue to fight against the Federal Reserve interest hikes until his Tariff fights against China, the EU and others are settled.  Why?  Because every time the Fed raises interest rates it strengthens our dollar against other currencies making foreign imports cheaper and our exports to others more expensive.  In short, it reduces the pain to China and the EU when Trump raises US Tariffs against these economies.

Minority Communities:  The Progressive-Left’s most feared Trump policy is his efforts in raising our inner-cities out of abject poverty and causing the Black and Hispanic minorities to take a second look at supporting Trump!  Trump’s support among these communities has skyrocketed to over 30% recently which if translated into votes, would doom any Democrat chance to keep the House and expel Trump from the White House!  Trump has established “Opportunity Zones” to create pubic-private partnerships to increase jobs and opportunities in targeted inner-city and rural locations.  His second push will be to provide real school choice for minorities to rid them from the shackles of second-rate public education.  He will use executive orders and regulations from the Department of Education to go as far as he can without Congressional action.  He will use both of these efforts to contrast the Democrat efforts to keep minorities in poverty and living in drug infested communities.  Minority unemployment is at an all time low.  Guess who will win this argument!

President Trump sees all of the attacks against him personally and against his policies as opportunities.  He wakes up every day and commits himself to continuing his fight for you.  He never tweets, “gee, I don’s think I can win against all of these attacks”.  He is always on the offensive.  We all need to be behind him and fight by his side. If you were a multi-billionaire, would you risk everything to fight for others?  Trump did!

FAKE NEWS-Family Separation Political Fallacy

Obama Policies Now Condemned by the Left as a Trump Failure!

24,000 Detained by Obama, 12,000 by Trump

Today, 85% of Separated Children are UNACCOMPANIED BY PARENTS!

Dention of immigrant children - 2014 and 2018

“Stupid is as Stupid Does”!

The Left creates a problem, then blames the Republicans, especially President Trump, for not fixing the problem!  Then, the Left’s media covers “Trump’s failures” wall-to-wall, and many Sheeples believe the rotten media without even educating themselves with the truth!  If you don’t like Fake News, stop watching the mainstream media, MSNBC and CNN, then do your own research! 

Ignorance is NOT BLISS, it is a road to the Death of Liberty!

The current child separation statutory and Flores ruling of the 9th Circuit court has its roots back to the Clinton administration.  The purpose by the left was to create a false emotional issue and visual of children being “ripped” from the arms of their parents.  Yes, the Left purposely created the child separation policy so they could whip up outrage against the policy and then allow families to come in to the country illegally without detention.  Feel smart now?  Open Borders is the Goal, the Children are merely pawns of the Left!

Why Now?

  • One, the mid-term elections are a mere 4 months away and the Left has no winning policies.
  • Two, the Justice Department IG report is damning to the Left, its hold over the DOJ and the FBI, and especially to HRC’s “exoneration” by Comey and his biased cronies.
  • The Trump economy is going gang busters and no matter how loony Nancy Pelosi gets with her “crumbs” and other insane rants the Left has no answer to the lowest unemployment for Blacks and Hispanics in history.  

The Left is looking down the barrel of another embarrassing election loss and this one during a mid-term election that should be easy for them!  The Left and its media lapdogs cannot win without a straw issue.  IF the American people educate themselves, the Left will lose this separation issue and the Left will be blamed as they should be!  Especially since the Left leader in the Senate said he will NOT support legislation to solve the child separation, or any other immigration legislation! 

This should be enough for any thinking person to see that the Left needs issues, not solutions!

Think about your own children.  Illegals entering this country by definition are not screened for communicable diseases.  Illegal children have not received the same vaccines that your children have but are in the same classrooms with your children!  Communicable diseases that were “conquered” by this country are now on the rise, including tuberculosis!

IF Ryan Doesn’t Step Down, Republicans Will Lose the 2018 Mid-Terms!

Face of Failure & Anti-Trump Agenda

See the source image

So Ryan announces to the world that he will NOT seek re-election and thus step down as Speaker of the House of Representatives, IN JANUARY OF 2019!

The Pro-Trump forces were ecstatic about the first part but want Ryan to step down as Speaker, NOW!  Ryan has proven that he is not a strong supporter of President Trump nor his AMERICA-FIRST agenda!  Ryan is an entrenched “Boehnerite“, elitist, insider, globalist political hack.

Assuming Ryan hangs on until January of 2019, he will have presided over spending that added $5.7 Trillion to our national debt and set the record for the most debt added by any Speaker in History.  John Boehner, Ryan’s predecessor as Speaker, drove up the national debt during his tenure from 2011 to 2015 some $4.2 Trillion.  Both gave in to President Obama time after time and outspent almost all of their predecessors combined!  Then, when Ryan has a budget conscience President Trump in the White House, Ryan shoved a $1.3 Trillion “Omnibus” spending bill  down his throat and added another $1 Trillion to our deficit!  And these clowns describe themselves as DEFICIT HAWKS!  What an insult to hawks and to our President!

Ryan Stays, Republican Lose in the 2018 Mid-Terms

Trump Supporters will not embrace a Paul Ryan’s slate of RINO candidates for the House this fall.  (McConnell will energize the base even less).  Trump Supporters are tired of the RINO’s in Congress not fully embracing Trump and they know full well that Trump has been fighting an uphill battle getting much of his agenda passed!  This includes Repeal and Replace of Obamacare, BUILDING THE SOUTHERN WALL, getting rid of sanctuary States/Cities, getting rid of chain migration, getting rid of the Visa Lottery, strengthening border security and increasing border enforcement personnel, and much more.  Yes, some of this lies at the feet of the Senate but Trump Supporters know that RINOs in the House will pass bills that they know will die in the Senate, like Obamacare repeal, and are tired of this game.

If Ryan stays and keeps pushing the House Republicans to embrace a luke-warm version of America First and a less than full-throated endorsement of President Trump and stand against the barrage of attacks on Trump by the left, the media and Robert Mueller, the Republicans will lose the House.  This will ensure that a Democrat controlled House will certainly impeach this President!  If we lose the Senate as well, Trump may face a conviction of the impeachment charges and possible removal from office.  NICE LEGACY FOR RYAN AND ONE THAT HE WOULD EMBRACE!  

Ryan Needs to Stand Down and the House Needs to Pick a Pro-Trump “America First” Speaker, NOW

The only chance Republicans have to keep their majority in the House and add to their majority in the Senate is for,

  • (1) Ryan to step down,
  • (2) the House immediately select a totally Pro-Trump Speaker, and
  • (3) for all of the Republican Candidates to whole-heartedly support President Trump’s agenda. 

This is the only chance for Republicans to maintain and/or grow their majorities in the House and Senate. 

The House and Senate Republican Leadership and their rank and file must close ranks around Trump now and go forward with a consistent theme of:

  • An improved economy for all races and genders, a rebirth of America by providing all of its citizens with the opportunity to succeed,
  • Securing our southern border and reforming our flawed immigration policies,
  • Making the world safer by dealing effectively with North Korea, Iran, Russia and China,
  • Removing regulatory barriers to business growth, and by truly making America Great Again! 
  • All they need to do is ask the voters, “ARE YOU BETTER OFF TODAY THAN YOU WERE BEFORE NOVEMBER 8TH, 2016”.  

Ryan and McConnell are the real albatross around the “neck” of our holding the House and the Senate and avoiding Democrat Impeachment of President Trump.  The Democrats have NO agenda of their own except “Trump is Bad”.  The irony is that Ryan and McConnell can actually help their party win in the 2018 mid-terms but their disdain for Trump and his America-First agenda will keep them from creating a winning narrative and a successful re-election strategy! 

Trump will do his part by trying to win in spite of the RINO Elitist sandbagging but he will need our help.  Bombard Ryan and the Republican leadership with a “DROP RYAN NOW” message on social media and by calling your congressman or woman.  Trump has much more to accomplish for YOU and he needs your support now.

We need to have a real Trump supporter as Speaker such as Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan or Steve Scalise.  Kevin McCarthy has been too squishy in his “support” of President Trump.  Plus, he has been a part of the RINO leadership since 2011.  He earned his “bones” during the Boehner and Ryan leadership regimes.  

What will you do to get Ryan out of his position as Speaker and replace him with a Pro-Trumper that will help us win the 2018 mid-terms.

Pres. Trump Makes Me Tired, Just Trying to Keep Up With Him!

I am tired and it is only Wednesday!  I have never observed a President multi-task to the degree of our President!  Not only can’t Congress even come close to keeping up with President Trump, the Stock Market and certainly the media are driving themselves crazy trying to predict the future, economically or politically!

This week, Trump is:

  • Moving the Military (National Guard) to our Southern border to stop illegal immigration, drug smuggling, and human trafficking.
  • Reviewing ways the Military can expand their rules of engagement at the Southern Border rather than just playing a support role to ICE and the Border Patrol.
  • Giving Mexico an ultimatum on keeping the “Caravan of Illegal Immigrants” from reaching the US Border.  Even threatening to delay the new NAFTA deal!
  • Doubling and tripling down on Chinese trade infractions and trade imbalance including taking them to the WTO, adding to the list of demands to balance our trade, and holding firm in spite of pushback from China and our stock market.
  • Challenged our Senate to dump the filibuster rule and get back to a majority rule to pass his agenda, especially the wall, and confirm his appointments.
  • Challenged Congress to step up and pass real border security and build the wall.
  • Formulating the best method to get us out of Syria by engaging our allies in the Middle East and step up financing our engagement and taking more direct responsibility for the outcome in Syria.
  • Challenging Congress to rethink the last budget busting bill they passed and cut it back and fund more of his priorities.
  • Took on the US Post Office contract with Amazon that costs the US taxpayers $1.50 for every package the USPS delivers for Amazon.
  • Even co-hosted an Easter Egg Roll at the White House with Melania.

Plus, he is still fighting the war in Afghanistan; winding down the war in Syria; mopping up in Iraq; planning Tax Cut II; Setting parameters for Welfare Reform; and much more.  How do you know he is working at the speed of light?  No One in Congress can even find a camera to complain about the Speed of Trump!  The RINOs in Congress better get behind this President or they will be up for early retirement!

It is nice to have Roseanne reboot her pro-Trump sitcom, but with Trump who needs television for entertainment!  Not me!

Swamp V Trump-$1.3 Trillion Spending-No Wall

Who Lost In This Latest Budget Fight?

Elected Officials View of Your Money!

First of all, for those who are wringing your hands and saying that Trump betrayed his campaign promises and sold out to the swamp and the Washington elites, man-up (or woman-up)!

In 14 months, do you really think that one man can completely change the power broker controlled Washington Swamp?  The House and the Senate are “controlled” by “Republicans”, NOT TRUMP AGENDA SUPPORTERS!  

Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are deeply entrenched members of the Washington Elites as are the Republican members of both houses and are absolutely aligned against Trump’s border security agenda and his immigration policies.  They are aligned against his America-First trade policies that will put America back onto somewhat of a level trade playing field with China, The European Union and South Korea.  They totally support the Mueller investigation of Trump as a way of hobbling him and keeping him in check with the threat of prosecution.  Finally, they know that he needs to keep control of the House and Senate in the 2018 Mid-Term elections if he does not want to face a Democrat Impeachment process and an even more obstructionist legislative body! 

Could any of you stood up any better against the Washington Establishment than Trump has for the past 14 months?  I think not!

See the source image

Pundits Panic!  Good Grief.  For the third time, even Rush Limbaugh is all wobbly wondering, and even egging on his listeners, if Trump “caving” to this $1.3T spending budget buster will be the end to Trump’s loyal base!  The first time Limbaugh got all wobbly was when Trump brought in a bi-partisan group to discuss immigration and the second when Trump once again brought in a bi-partisan group to discuss gun-control.  Limbaugh’s immediate reaction to both was that Trump had just alienated his base and it is all over.  Wow, talk about a lack of faith and a total lack of loyalty!

Did y’all think the swamp was going to roll over and embrace the Trump and his policies that are hell-bent on taking away their power and restoring the power to the people?  Did you think that Ryan, McConnell, Pelosi, and Schumer were going to play fair and not set land mines smack dab in the middle of Trump’s path?  Did you think that the Washington Elite would give Trump a victory on the Wall, tightening border security, Immigration Reform, Visa Reform, and so on?  These are Trump’s policies, not the policies embraced by the Washington Elites made up of Republicans and Democrats.  

Why did Ryan and McConnell support the Trump Tax Cuts?  Simple.  The 2018 Mid-Terms are right around the corner and these two jerks have not had a legislative victory in years.  They needed a win to run on and tax cuts were the wagon they hitched their fortunes to.  They didn’t care if Trump got most of the glory but they knew that a good economy is hard for the Democrats to run against.  Giving into Trump’s other Agenda items, especially immigration related issues, would be a win for Trump and a loss for Ryan and McConnell’s big buck backers.   They are pathetic and should never have been elected, ever!

Trump’s Win and Loss

Trump’s #1 priority is rebuilding the military and you would think that it would be the #1 priority of all patriots.  Not so fast.  It was Congress, including the Republicans that agreed to Sequestration that emasculated our military and degraded our military capabilities to early 20th century levels.  Trump is facing possible conflicts in North Korea, Iran, and Syria and has to have a show of strength to stave off China and Russia.  The military build-up was the perfect carrot with which to trap Trump into agreeing to this spending and policy nightmare.  The military funding was a win for the President.

Trump temporarily lost his drive to defund sanctuary cities/States; funding for his wall; beefing up border security; ending chain migration; ending the Visa Lottery; and getting control of spending and re-establishing a sane budgeting process.  All of these issues are firmly opposed by big business, big donors, and their lobbyists up and down K Street in DC.  He also lost the psychological war against the idiotic Mueller Russian Collusion Probe as this deal will be perceived on the Left as a weakening of President Trump.

Trump Veto?  The President could have vetoed this insane bill but what were the trade-offs?  Congress had already left DC for another 2 week vacation!  So, if Trump had vetoed the bill, and triggered a shut-down, it would have been at least a week before he could drag them back into the swamp!  Even when they came back, it would have taken days if not weeks to get some kind of agreement to fund the government.  This accentuates the trap Ryan and McConnell set for Trump by not giving him, nor their members, any time to debate and make changes to this bill.   In the interim, our men and women in the military would not be paid and most of them are living pay-check to pay-check!  Other government employees would be furloughed and would not be paid as well.  But the political push-back against Trump would be hard for him to fight as he would be standing alone against Congress and the media while his precious military would not be receiving their pay while risking their lives for even the traitors in Congress!

Trump needs your support now more than ever!  He is still fighting for you, are you still fighting for and supporting Trump?

Who Else Lost?

 Ryan and McConnell and the Republican Elites seriously damaged their chances to keep the house and increase their seats in the Senate in the 2018 Mid-Terms.  These idiots actually thought they could run against the Trump Agenda and win in the upcoming Mid-Terms.  Their own egos and that of their donors think that running away from, and actually opposing, the Trump Agenda is a winning hand.  Even a Democrat beat a Republican in Pennsylvania a couple of weeks ago by RUNNING ON THE TRUMP AGENDA, while the Republican was “Trump Squishy”.  Ryan and McConnell think that Trump’s popularity did not help this feckless Republican candidate even though he campaigned for this candidate.  Without the Trump base, Ryan and McConnell will both become minority leaders in 2019!  They deserve it, WE DON’T!

The taxpayers and Trump supporters were also big losers in this deal.  They killed funding for the Wall by stipulating that Trump could not spend the money on any wall that was made of concrete!  Barbed wire is probably OK.  Budget deficits will continue to swell and restoring a sane budget process seems to be even more of a pipe dream!  

What Are the Risks to Abandoning Trump

Well, if you like Obama and Clinton then go for it and abandon Trump.  If the Democrats take back the Senate and the House, Trump, and us, are toast!  The Hard Left, without any real opposition from the Republican RINOs, will impeach Trump with any trumped-up charge they can create.  Pelosi and Schumer will rise to lead both houses and Trump, and us, will be stymied at every turn!  Trump may actually win in 2020 but I would not blame him if he decides not to run if the Ryan/McConnell madness leads to Democrat control of Congress in 2018. 

TRUMP DOES NOT NEED THIS HEADACHE (SERVING AS PRESIDENT), BUT, WE NEED TRUMP TO BE OUR PRESIDENT!

DC Now on Trump-Time! And They Hate IT!

Overworked Congress!  NOT

See the source imageTypical Senate Floor Scene Where Nothing is Happening!

President Trump is teaching Congress and this nation that we better learn to Walk-And-Chew-Gum at the same time or we will perish as a nation.  Immigration Reform, Infrastructure, Opioid Crisis, School Safety, Welfare Reform, Fair Trade Restructuring, VA Reform, Healthcare Reform, Korean Nuclear Crisis, Syrian War, Iranian Nuclear Program, Middle East Peace, Afghan War, Stabilizing Iraq, Crushing ISIS, the War on Terror,  are all on TRUMP’S FRONT BURNER!  All this while Mueller, two committees in the Senate and two in the House are investigating Trump, his administration and his family for any possible wrong doing they can find using “Russian Collusion” as their cover…

Congress however, has trouble tackling even one of these at a time!

Last week was a perfect example.  Following the school shooting in Florida, Trump held a series of meetings with school children, their parents, law enforcement officials and elected officials to discuss the tragedy and preventative solutions.   A day after one of Trump’s summits when he called for Congress to act, Mitch the Turtle McConnell, announced that the Senate could not possible take up school safety as they had to concentrate on BANKING next week.  Seriously, kids are being killed and you are worried about the FDIC!

 This nation is suffering from a chronic case of DEFERRED MAINTENANCE.  There is not one single thing I can think of that works the way it should in government at all levels. 

  • The FBI ignores a tips that could have saved 17 people in the Florida shootings; Broward County adopted the “Promise Program” that kept them from arresting the Florida shooting one single time out of almost 50 confirmed complaints;
  • We have at least 3 federal circuit courts that think they are Congress and are above the President;
  • We have and FBI and a DOJ that is so politically corrupt that the almost got away with rigging the last election;
  • We have a federal water policy that is crippling our agricultural output; we have almost a trillion-dollar trade imbalance that robs a trillion dollars out of our GDP every year;
  • We have had at least one law enforcement killing per week since the first of the year and Obama’s 8 years of bad-mouthing our police; 
  • We are being challenged every day by North Korea, China, Russia, Iran, ISIS, Terrorists, and others while we have a depleted military and support infrastructure;
  • We have not passed a real budget in 10 years!  Trump proposed his on time and so far Congress has not done a thing to pass it!
  • We have a main stream media that is so Anti-American that it is helping to destroy the very fabric of this great nation.
  • And I could go on for days!

The Republican Congress needs to step up and start passing Trump’s agenda and doing so on his timetable, not theirs!  The Senate needs to grow up and return the Senate to a 50 vote majority and vote on the backlog of legislation awaiting them from the House.  The Senate needs to vote up or down now on all of Trump’s appointments.  It is criminal that they have not even voted on our ambassador to Germany!

And, Congress needs to stay in session and do their job!  They are all worried about the 2018 Mid-Terms.  News flash!  IF you don’t pass Trump’s agenda, you won’t have to worry about the 2020 election as you won’t be in office!
