  • FENCE NO MORE (flashback to 2007)

    DO you know the story of the Incredible Disappearing Border Fence? It’s an object lesson in gesture politics and homeland insecurity. It’s a tale of hollow rhetoric, meaningless legislation and bipartisan betrayal. And – in the runup to the Iowa caucuses – it’s a helpful learning tool as you assess the promises of immigration-enforcement converts now running for president. Last fall, Democrats and Republicans in Washington responded to continued public outrage over border chaos by passing the “Secure Fence Act.” Did you question the timing? You should have. It’s no coincidence they finally got off their duffs to respond just...

    The mountain peak provides 360-degree views of the desert below. To the east, the homes and businesses of Casa Grande dot the landscape. To the north, the lights of Phoenix glimmer in the distance. But to the west and south, there is just desert as far as the eye can see. It is this vantage point that is coveted by Mexican drug cartel scouts, stationed up here for weeks at a time, and tasked with one job: guiding drug shipments north from the border. “They’re radioing in, letting the smugglers know when it’s time to start going,” said Detective Eddie...

    President Trump mounted one of the most serious executive branch challenges to congressional authority in decades, circumventing Congress with an emergency declaration. The move left Senate Republicans sharply divided, and it remains to be seen whether they will act collectively to try to stop it.

    The Trump 2020 campaign is highlighting examples of the president keeping his promises, advisory board member Marc Lotter says. The attorneys general of California, New York, and 14 other states on Monday filed a lawsuit in the Ninth Circuit against the White House's recent national emergency declaration over border security, claiming President Trump has "veered the country toward a constitutional crisis of his own making." President Trump sarcastically had predicted the lawsuit last week. He's slammed the Ninth Circuit multiple times as "disgraceful" and politically biased. The litigation, brought before a federal trial court in the Northern District of California,...

    A 7-year-old from a community near Austin, Texas, has found himself going viral after photos and videos of his hot chocolate stand hit the internet. However, he isn’t your everyday child entrepreneur — the young boy is raising money to help fund President Donald Trump’s controversial border wall. According to Jennifer Stevens, her son, Benton, was moved by Trump’s State of the Union Address and became naturally curious about the wall. “He wanted to know about the wall so we explained what it was about and he was like, ‘I want to raise money for the wall,’” she told the...

    “At that time, [marching] from Tirtza, Menachem subdued Tiphsah and all who were in it, and its territory; and because it did not surrender, he massacred [its people] and ripped open all its pregnant women.” II Kings 15:16 President Trump held a conference call with 4,500 participants on Thursday in which he reportedly referred to late-term abortions as “execution.” During the invitation-only conference call, the president discussed recent attempts by Democratic lawmakers to advance a pro-abortion agenda. In particular, the president discussed a bill recently signed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo which allows abortions after 24 weeks if the...

    Attorney Alan Dershowitz said in a new interview that President Trump's decision to declare a national emergency to build a wall along the southern border was a mistake. “My own view is that it was a mistake to do it. I think emergencies are things that happened suddenly. The problems with immigration are long term,” he said in an interview that aired Sunday on John Catsimatidis’s radio show in New York... Dershowitz predicted the declaration would face a long court battle. “There will be a lawsuit. No doubt about it. It will be tied up in the courts for a...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and Attorney General Hector Balderas announced today that they will take President Donald Trump to court “over his inappropriate and overreaching” declaration of a national emergency. Trump on Friday declared a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border ... The declaration is aimed at securing more money for his signature border wall. Both Lujan Grisham and Balderas are blasting the president for the declaration, saying that it would divert funds “crucial to the protection of New Mexicans away from their proper channels and puts New Mexico’s economy and people at risk.” “As Attorney General...

    Rep. Jerry Nadler (D., N.Y.) on Friday suggested a future Democratic president could confiscate citizens' guns based on the precedent of President Donald Trump's national emergency announcement regarding the border wall. Nadler, the new chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, appeared on CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time" to discuss Trump's announcement earlier in the morning. Trump declared it "necessary" to build the wall on the southern border. Host Chris Cuomo asked Nadler if enough Republicans would come out against Trump, prompting him to say, "I think so" and that he believes Republicans are terrified of unintended consequences. He speculated about other...

    An ambush by gunmen from a faction of Los Zetas killed one Mexican soldier and injured two others in Nuevo Laredo. Three attackers working for a convicted terrorist also died in the incident just south of Laredo, Texas. Mexican military officials have not released any information on the attack, however unofficial sources with direct knowledge revealed to Breitbart News the attack took place along the highway that connects Nuevo Laredo and Monterrey. Moving in various SUVs, a team of gunmen with the Cartel Del Noreste (CDN) faction of Los Zetas attacked a convoy of soldiers patrolling the streets of Nuevo...

    Another scandal for the "scandal-free" Obama administration. Not all ICE targets work construction or smuggle drugs. Some are key figures in the Dem machine. But the era of Obama corruption is over. There's a new sheriff in town. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) this week arrested two millionaire fugitives from Ecuador whose family donated heavily to American political campaigns. Roberto and William Isaías, 74 and 75, were detained Wednesday in Miami and taken to a detention facility for undocumented immigrants awaiting deportation, The New York Times reported Friday. ICE told the Times that the brothers were “unlawfully present” in...

    President Trump has declared a national emergency in order to pay for physical barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border, but will Congress block it? That’s a long shot — but we can’t rule it out either. Here’s the basic process, as the New York Times explained in an article after Trump’s declaration. Congress can take up a resolution to end a presidential national emergency declaration. If such a resolution passes in one chamber, the other must bring it up for a vote within 18 days. If the resolution passes both chambers and the president vetoes it, a two-thirds majority in Congress...

    USA Today reports a wave of protests have been planned from New York to California and Texas to oppose the president’s national emergency declaration. Seriously, is there any organization more misnomered than MoveOn.org?  Founded in 1998 to protest Bill Clinton’s impeachment at the hands of the evil Republicans, they’ve never gotten over it, never moved on. They exist to protest, and they decide when and what you will protest. Sadly, this protest was cancelled, due to the government not being shut down on January 29th, 2019They are much better funded now (shoutout to George Soros!) and can afford to...

    (I saw this on a Facebook post): ========== WALL RESEARCH • there are only three circuits who might hear a challenge to a Declaration of Emergency, 9th, 5th, and 10th. But a challenge can only start in a state where wall construction is going up (Texas). While not unanimous, the 5th Circuit in Texas is an R-dominated court. However, and this is where it gets good, before any court can hear a case it must be "ripe." For ex., DeWine in Ohio has said he will sign the "Heartbeat Bill" and ghoulish Planned Parenthood will challenge that - but Planned...

    Five people have been shot dead and five more wounded in Cancún after gunmen burst into a bar in the Mexican resort city and opened fire. Quintana Roo state prosecutors said the attack on Saturday took place in a club called La Kuka, on a main avenue in central Cancún about 6km (4 miles) away from the Caribbean resort city’s seaside tourist hotel zone, situated on the Yucatán Peninsula. Prosecutors said four men carrying a long gun and three handguns entered and began shooting. Two of the injured were in critical condition. Violence has been rising in Cancún and the...

    For over a decade, under multiple administrations, the U.S. government had a secret agreement with the ruthless Mexican Sinaloa drug cartel that allowed it to operate with impunity, an in-depth investigation by a leading Mexican newspaper confirmed this week. In exchange for information and assistance in quashing competing criminal syndicates, the Bush and Obama administrations let the Sinaloa cartel import tons of drugs into the United States while wiping out Sinaloa competitors and ensuring that its leaders would not be prosecuted for their long list of major crimes. Other revelations also point strongly to massive but clandestine U.S. government involvement...
  • Stacey Abrams and her ZOMBIE ARMY

    02/05/2019 11:35:58 PM PST · by Jeff Chandler · 25 replies
    Stacey Abrams gave the Democrat Party rebuttal to President Trump’s State of the Union speech last night. The content was predictable and the delivery reasonably competent, but the interesting aspect of the speech was the decision to green screen Abrams and project her image onto video of a nebulous audience, which were apparently standing in a studio in another location, giving the broadcast a weird Photoshopped aura. Compounding his mistake, the director kept the audience image blurred, so that they seemed to loom ominously behind Ms. Abrams, freedom-eating zombies waiting to pounce. Maybe the Democrat Party should get some help...

    George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley, a noted constitutional expert, explained the difference on Friday between President Barack Obama’s legal case involving lawsuits against Obamacare and President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration. “They’re using the case where I represented the House of Representatives against Obamacare. And we won. But this is not the same case,” Turley said on “Fox & Friends. “What President Obama did was order the Treasury essentially to be opened up and to pay insurance companies. That’s a different type of funding.” “What Trump is going to do is he’s going to use money that...

    California AG Xavier Becerra said the state will “definitely and imminently” be filing its 46th lawsuit against the Trump administration, this one over the president’s recent national emergency declaration on the southern border. “We are prepared,” Becerra, a Democrat, said on “This Week” Sunday. “We knew something like this might happen, and with our sister state partners, we are ready to go.” “We’re confident there are at least 8 billion ways that we can prove harm,” Becerra said, adding that “once we are all clear, all the different states are clear, what pots of money that taxpayers sent to D.C....
