  • Bill would bar border wall from state land (NM land office now in charge of radicals)

    SANTA FE – A legislative proposal introduced Monday would prohibit New Mexico from providing state land for the construction of the border wall sought by President Trump. The two-page bill would also prohibit the use of other state resources for construction of the wall, or any similar barrier, along the Mexican border. State Rep. Angelica Rubio, a Las Cruces Democrat and sponsor of House Bill 287, said a wall would be expensive and interfere with the movement of wildlife – without actually improving public safety, as its supporters say it would. “I think people who are trying to make decisions...

    Via the Daily Beast, nothing much happening here, just the father of Trump’s press secretary inviting his foremost immigration critic from the right to put up or shut up. My idea when the shutdown began was for POTUS to invite Coulter to be his lead negotiator with Democrats on immigration; let America’s populist heroes come off the sidelines and show us the way to victory and/or take personal responsibility for the standoff, since they seem to think it’s a good idea. But this’ll work too.I wonder if she’d consider it, in fact. She seems to be the only prominent...

    So, could this shutdown end up hurting Democrats again? Both sides are not budging. The partisan divide on immigration is the equivalent of the width of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans combined. President Trump is trying to make good on his promise to secure the border, a key campaign promise. The Democrats, wanting to take their new House majority for a spin, are not playing ball. They were elected to block and fight this administration. They’re not giving one-cent. President Trump recently offered a deal to break the logjam. A three-year extension to DACA recipients, plus more protections to those with Temporary...

    My kid is an immigrant and came to America legally. I look with awe and wonder at him, remembering how his only wish was to come to America and have a family. It peeves me that illegal aliens are allowed to not only jump in line ahead of him like the schoolyard bully, but even reap benefits that he could not get (while he was waiting for his citizenship my son could not legally attend school for credit though illegals usually can). Angel Families surely feel what I feel, though much more magnified. Their pain is our pain and we...
  • The Mirror On The White House Wall Shows The Democrats For What They Really Are

    White House mirror was supposed to do what the mainstream and social media are doing: show the Democrats as heroes in the border wall/government shutdown boondoggle. Instead it shows them as they really are, and it's not a pretty picture The mirror on the White House Wall was supposed to show President Donald Trump as “immoral” for wanting to protect his country’s southern border with a wall. Instead the mirror is showing how immoral Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and the high-handed, hate-ridden Democrats are. The mainstream and social media have yet to ask how wanting to protect the citizenry from...

    Call me a hard-hearted, mean-spirited conservative if you will, but I am not bleeding from the heart over the plight of most of the furloughed federal workers. While I am certain that some of them have not bothered to accumulate savings, and thus are running out of money with which to pay important bills, the rest of us in the private sector have had to live with the possibility of our incomes being cut off for our entire careers. Moreover, federal employees, especially in the lower ranges of the income scale, make out like bandits compared to the rest...

    Townhall.com ^ | January 20, 2019 | Kevin McCullough
    With the rejection of President Trump’s latest border security compromise Democrats have rejected security for Americans on many different levels. This set of rejections adds to the growing list of recent weeks in which nearly every decision they make works against the citizens of the United States. Even after repeated compromises (President Trump moving to a “steel slat” and away from a “wall”) and self-admissions of a barrier’s effectiveness (House Majority Leader Hoyer confessing “well of course walls work,”) they continue to harbor anti-American values and sentiment in their approach towards the current crisis. Thus far they have rejected the...

    Matt C. Pinsker (JD, LLM) - author, national security expert, criminal defense attorney, US Army Reserve officer, and homeland security professor at Virginia Commonwealth University - is in a unique position to provide valuable insight on how desperately the United States needs a physical barrier on its southern border. During his service as a federal special prosecutor (SAUSA) on the border prosecuting thousands of cases involving illegal immigration and cartel activity, Pinsker has witnessed far more than your average journalist clamoring for a border photo-op (looking at you, Jim Acosta), and was happy to answer a few questions for our...

    By pre-emptively rejecting President Trump's reasonable plan, Democrats have proven they do not really care about: (a) the 800,000 government workers not getting paychecks that they’ve been whining about, and (b) the million DACA recipients. They have also shown they have no willingness to work with the President to end this shutdown. He didn’t even have to play them; in their vile hatred and stupidity, they played themselves, and they officially own it now. In the meantime, Latinos are increasingly rallying to the president's side, according to a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll, which notes that 50 percent of Latinos surveyed...

    Did somebody hack the Washington Post website?That was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the title of this WaPo editorial. Shortly after Nancy Pelosi declared that President Trump’s offer of a deal yesterday was “a non-starter,” the newspaper’s editorial board led with the title, “Make a Deal. Save the Dreamers.”To be sure, the editorial goes to great lengths to include a barrage of insults to the President before getting to the meat of their argument. They ensure their liberal bona fides by declaring that he doesn’t deserve to be rewarded for “taking the government hostage”...

    Is it coming tomorrow? House Democrats are still holding the line on denying President Trump his border wall. The $5 billion proposal led to the current shutdown, now the longest in American history. Trump wants to at least get part of the border wall built. Democrats are not in a bipartisan mode. They just retook the House on the overarching promise to fight this White House not work with it.  I will be making a major announcement concerning the Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border, and the Shutdown, tomorrow afternoon at 3 P.M., live from the @WhiteHouse.— Donald J....

    Border security is an issue where the Democratic Party is suffering from schizophrenia. They were for it before they were against it. Donald Trump winning the 2016 election caused that, despite some very prominent Democrats, like Barack Obama, supporting border barriers in times past. Now, the war cry is that “a wall is an immorality.” That is coming from Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Walls are immoral. So, what about illegal aliens who murdered American citizens? Apparently, that’s not a concern; dreams of amnesty and expanded Democratic voter rolls have clouded the liberal mind. Pelosi: ‘A wall is an immoralityYet, House Majority...

    I’ve changed my mind about building a wall along the Mexican border. Build it!... So why have I changed my mind about the wall? Because of the caravans of immigrants assaulting our southern border... But the Democrats and the Republicans should be more concerned about another kind of threat... Politicians on both sides of the wall are going to look very stupid if there is a big terrorist strike because of something that came through Mexico.

    He is not, not, not. I’ve made that case at length elsewhere but let me add a few points.1. Contra Coulter, Trump’s probably the only major player in the standoff who isn’t dead, dead, dead if he’s the first to extend an olive branch. McConnell is facing reelection in a red state next year and is always viewed suspiciously by the base notwithstanding his work on judicial confirmations. If he buckles and destroys Trump’s leverage he may face a populist revolt in Kentucky. Schumer is viewed similarly suspiciously by the left, a weak leader who won’t fight fight fight...

    President Trump’s proposed wall along the United States-Mexico border has soared in popularity with American voters across the board, as he battles a split GOP-Democrat Congress to secure funding for the barrier. The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll reveals a major shift among nearly all demographic groups across the country when it comes to support for a border wall at the southern border. This time last year, the poll claimed that only 34 percent of voters supported a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border. Today, support for the wall has climbed to 42 percent overall. Most notable, swing voters are increasingly...
