Mexico Will Pay for Trump’s Wall

So we are roughly a week into the Trump presidency and he has been moving at lightning speed setting out to accomplish everything he has promised during his presidential campaign.  One of the projects that made up the foundation of his campaign was securing the border which became an issue due to the immigration crisis we are currently experiencing in this country as hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants stream across our southern border.  We have heard from politicians for decades about stemming this flow and up until now they have been all talk.

Notice I said up until now!  Finally it appears we have a president sitting at the desk in the oval office who is actually putting actions behind his words.  This is a starch contrast to what we have witnessed for quite some time now, especially during the Obama administration as he failed to follow through on almost all of his campaign promises.  Remember “hope and change”?  I rest my case.


Nonetheless Trump is determined we need to secure our border and he sees a wall as the solution to the problem. While there may be some debate on this aspect of securing the border, one thing is for sure, Trump has said time and time again that Mexico would pay for the wall.  


While this has been a hotly contested topic of discussion there is one thing people are forgetting to realize.  Whether or not you agree with the building of the wall, it is part of our government’s constitutional duty to secure our borders. I know that may sound harsh and to some snowflakes out there they may need to retreat to their safe spaces at the thought of the United States securing its borders but there is no disputing it.

The United States Constitution specifically states,

Article 4, Section 4
The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.

It seems quite clear the federal government hasn’t been standing up to their end of the Constitution. The citizens of each state are still required to continue funding the federal government though regardless of the fact that numerous states around the country are literally being overrun with illegal aliens.  The fact that this is occurring is also a large reason why Donald Trump was elected president in the first place. We the people saw in him someone who would buck the trend of the typical go along to get along politicians in DC.  We saw in him someone who would once and for all secure our border and restore sovereignty to this country.


Moving forward to the next issue regarding The Wall, the big beautiful, YUUGGEEE WALL!  How do we pay for it? There has been argument after argument as to how we would pay for what is estimated by some to be a $15 to $20 billion dollar project.  Well I have one possible theory as to how we pay for the wall, cut the federal funding to other countries around the world including Mexico.  


According to InsideGov.com,


The U.S. Government gave a total of $209 million to Mexico in 2012:
The aid was broken down in the following manner:
Economic
  • Child Survival and Health: -$12,200
  • Department of Defense Security Assistance: $39,854
  • Development Assistance: $17.9 million
  • Economic Support Fund/Security Support Assistance: $40.8 million
  • Global Health and Child Survival: $3.89 million
  • Narcotics Control: $27.6 million
  • Nonproliferation, Anti-Terrorism, Demining and Related: $7.07 million
  • Other Active Grant Programs: $15.4 million
  • Other State Assistance: $2.7 million
  • Other USAID Assistance: $2,764
  • Other USDA Assistance: $372,914
  • Peace Corps: $2 million
Military
  • Military Assistance, Total: $91.7 million


This is just the amount of money given to Mexico in a single given year. Why are we giving aid to a foreign country like Mexico to cover things like “grant programs”, “economic support”, “other active grant programs”, and so on.  Some of the items on this list are extremely vague which leads anyone with a little common sense to believe the money may not be going where they say it is.



The point of the matter is, in a single year we GAVE AWAY $209 million dollars to Mexico, money that could in turn be used to fund projects like building a border wall.  Before you liberals go off on the numbers here, I realize that what we gave Mexico in that single given year is essentially a drop in the bucket in regards to the overall estimated cost of the wall, but if we were to cut foreign aid to other countries we have no business giving money to as well as cut money paid to organizations like the UN the possibility definitely exists that we could in a few years fund the entire project.


Lets not forget the Obama stimulus package that cost the taxpayers roughly $700 billion dollars and did nothing to actually stimulate the economy. I for one and much more on board with funding a project that is called for in the Constitution and will inevitably lead to a safer more prosperous nation.


I know some will dispute that it’s still taxpayers funding the wall, which essentially should be the case as it is the federal government’s responsibility to secure the border whether some taxpayers like it or not. After all the government has used our money for dozens if not hundreds of pet projects not called for in the Constitution and we were all told to just shut up and sit down.


Bottom line is you want Mexico to pay for the wall cut the foreign aid, apply it to the wall and there you have it! Securing our borders is a Constitutionally granted right of the federal government and we need to see to it that we support Donald Trump in doing so.

Stop the $221 Million Payment to the Palestinians

In yet another attempt to undermine the incoming Trump administration former president Obama released $221 million in tax payer money to the Palestinians.  You may ask why he did this? I think it’s quite simple, Obama has an utter disregard and disrespect for Israel and their people. Roughly a few weeks ago Obama reversed a long standing tradition of the US Federal Government to veto anti-Israel UN resolutions. 

According to Brietbart
Some Senate Democrats have issued scathing statements against President Barack Obama and his administration’s decision to break with longstanding tradition to veto anti-Israel resolutions, choosing, instead, to abstain from voting in a United Nations Security Council vote. The vote called for a halt to Israeli construction in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem.

Even Senate Democrats weren’t in alignment with Obama and the actions he took to throw another dagger at Israel. Israel, the only true democratic country in the entire middle east and one of our biggest allies.

Fast forward to Trump’s inauguration day and this time Obama uses the Israeli Palestinian conflict to undermine the incoming president by literally giving $221 million dollars in tax payer money to the Palestinian state! You read that right $221 million dollars of tax payer funds are going to the terrorist state of Palestine! You may wonder where I got off saying tax payer funds, well considering the government itself doesn’t actually produce anything and as a result they do not have an income, any money they spend is essentially our money!

According to The Times of Israel,

The State Department is reviewing a last-minute decision by former Secretary of State John Kerry to send $221 million dollars to the Palestinians late last week over the objections of congressional Republicans.

The department said Tuesday it would look at the payment and might make adjustments to ensure it comports with the Trump administration’s priorities.

Kerry formally notified Congress that State would release the money Friday morning, just hours before President Donald Trump took the oath of office.

There you have it! Obama’s last move as President of the United States and he attempts to stick it to Israel one last time.

The Times of Israel goes on to explain,

Congress had initially approved the Palestinian funding in budget years 2015 and 2016, but at least two GOP lawmakers — Ed Royce of California, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Kay Granger of Texas, who sits on the House Appropriations Committee — had placed holds on it over moves the Palestinian Authority had taken to seek membership in international organizations. Congressional holds are generally respected by the executive branch but are not legally binding after funds have been allocated.

At least a few members of Congress are privy to this issue Obama created and are taking the necessary steps to see to it the Palestinians NEVER see these funds. Additionally, we know Trump will support this move as well as he is an outspoken supporter of Israel and the Jewish State.

Trump is Draining the Swamp!

Turns out Donald Trump is looking to follow through with his promise to drain the swamp and he’s going to start right where he should, he’s going to get rid of excess government fat.  In other words he is going to get rid of the people employed by government who are doing nothing more than occupying space and wasting oxygen. There are countless government agencies that literally mean nothing to the overall well being of the American people nor are they called for in the Constitution.

This gets me to my main underlying point in many of the articles I write, and that is getting back to a federal government as intended by the Constitution.  A smaller government whose main focus should be the overall protection of the American people from enemies foreign and domestic, and if you ask me after 8 years of Obama there are plenty of enemies out there looking to do Americans harm.  Obama has weakened our military to levels we haven’t seen since before WWII, luckily we have Trump coming into office and not only should he drain the swamp it also appears he intends to bring us back to the country we once were; a country that other nations respected and our enemies feared.

According to the Washington Examiner,


Making good on a promise to slash government, President-elect Trump has asked his incoming team to pursue spending and staffing cuts.


Insiders said that the spending reductions in some departments could go as high as 10 percent and staff cuts to 20 percent, numbers that would rock Washington if he follows through.


The spending reductions are expected to be used to help pay for Trump’s plan to boost the Pentagon’s budget, tax cuts and some pet projects, potentially including the anti-immigration wall on the nation’s southern border.


The teams also are looking at staffing cuts over four years through attrition, a hiring freeze and reorganization.


I know what you’re thinking… Oh no people are going to lose their jobs.  What so ever will those people do when they are out of work.  Well you know what?  You have no reason to feel for these people if you think about the hardships they have put other Americans through when they were doing their jobs.  These individuals that were nothing more than wasted space employed in agencies that overtaxed, overburdened, and over regulated small businesses into non-existence. They didn’t feel for the lives they were ruining or the families they destroyed as many could no longer afford to put food on the table.  

This… people… is the change we need!  This here is draining the swamp and Trump fulfilling his promise to Make America Great Again.  I have said this all along and I stick to it that we must stand by and hold his feet to the fire if he doesn’t follow through with promises like this but as of yet we really have no reason not to believe he is a man of his word and he intends to bring America back to what it once was before progressives like Obama.  Before progressives like Obama forced their socialist ideologies on us in their sad attempt to bring America down to the level of other third world countries they idolize so much.

Proud to Be An American!!!

Hello everyone!!!

I know it’s been a while since I last posted here on the Young Conservative blog and a lot has changed in the last few months since my last post! I’m sure you were all wrapped up in the election just as I was in the hopes that we could somehow save our country from what appeared to be imminent disaster had crooked Hillary Clinton been elected. Sure enough the true American spirit prevailed and we came out on top as we were able to ensure the next president of the United States would indeed be Donald J. Trump!

I can’t help but touch on what has to be the best part of this past election season, the literal implosion of the millennials as they simply could not take it that their chosen one hadn’t been elected. They cried, called out of work, and some actresses and big name celebrities actually stayed in bed for days. We witnessed the “protests” while the morons cried “not my president” and subsequently proceeded to call out the electoral college as racist. We heard cries about how we are a democracy and Trump never won because he didn’t get win the popular vote. Little did the snowflakes realize, we are actually a Constitutional Republic and the forefathers designed our government to protect against the highly populated areas of the northeast and California from electing the President.

The silent majority has been awakened and we the people are finally standing up to be heard. We are tired of being lectured by the likes of the Hollywood elite telling us how we are to live our lives while they NEVER practice what they preach.  They are no better than the socialist minded Democrats governing from on high while relegating we the little people to things like Obamacare, the public education system, and the rest of the government funded programs the people are “given” at the expense of the middle class. Turns out we are tired of paying for other people’s free shit and THAT is a large part of the reason Trump will be the next President of The United States!!

We are approaching a new time in American history, a time where will see a revitalization of the American economy, a time in which our veterans will finally take precedence over the illegal alien, a time in which Americans will no longer be mocked for “clinging to their guns” and religion. I have always been proud to be an American and always will be, we will once again have a President that feels the same way!!
