The Crisis at Our Southern Border Is A National Emergency

The Sudden Obsession Over Presidential Powers

Up until now many have never even heard of the National Emergency Declaration or the act of Congress that bestowed this power upon the President of the United States. Yet as with many Presidential powers the Left suddenly disagrees with, the power to declare a national emergency is all of the sudden in the cross hairs for one simple reason – Donald Trump is President. The topic of Presidential power was never a point of contention when Barack Obama was sitting behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office – only now do the pseudo-intellectual talking heads in the mainstream media suddenly have an issue with Presidential power.

Barack Obama took it upon himself to write law – which happens to be a responsibility assigned to Congress – when he drafted up the DACA bill because as he said if congress won’t act he will. And rather than push back, the mainstream media lauded his completely unconstitutional action as groundbreaking and something that just had to be done. The DACA legislation was just one of the many times Obama circumvented the Constitution, other instances include the Chrysler Bailout, the implementation of Obamacare, political profiling by the IRS, and Net Neutrality just to name a few more. Each and every time these actions were taken there was no push back from Democrats in Congress, in fact many supported and defended these actions showing complete disregard for the Constitution and the check that Congress is supposed to have against the Executive branch of government.

In Steps Donald J Trump

Fast forward just a couple of years and the American people have spoken by electing President Donald Trump to the highest office in the land. The people rose up and showed their utter disdain for the lawlessness of the prior administration by electing a man who’s mission is to transfer the power from the government back to the people.  This frightens nearly all Democrats and even many Republicans to the core as they see Trump as an existential threat to their careers in government.

This is why so many in Congress are lashing out, it is why we are seeing endless investigations coming from the House as they recently issued document requests from 81 individuals associated with President Trump. Furthermore, the Trump administration has been under siege by Mueller and his band of thugs ever since the fake, phony Steele Dossier surfaced – to this day they still have yet to uncover any proof of Russia collusion. Amidst all of these controversy, President Trump has held strong and continued to battle on the behalf of the American people.

The Battle for the Border

Going back to the very beginning of the Trump campaign one of, if not his biggest most influential promises was that he would build the wall. This promise struck accord with nearly all Americans as many have been affected by the horrors that have come with illegal immigration in one way shape or form.

Donald Trump seemed to be the only one of the many Republican Presidential candidates that truly seemed to understand the significance of securing the border. As a result he coasted to receiving the nomination from the Republican party for the 2016 election despite some rather unhappy establishment republicans in Congress. And the rest is history as Trump garnered 304 electoral votes on that fateful November night in 2016 to become the 45th President of the United States.

Upon taking office President Trump did not forget his promise to secure the border and the battle began. Trump has been fighting endlessly with Congress to obtain the necessary funding to build the border wall and stop once and for all the flow of newly minted Democrat voters into this country by way of our border with Mexico. This fight has continued on for the entirety of his Presidency resulting in the longest government shutdown this nation has ever seen and the threat of another government shutdown if Trump didn’t give in and sign a govt funding bill to keep government open despite the lack of funding for the wall.

Trump Declares a National Emergency

Pushed to the breaking point President Trump resorted to the only tool he had left in his arsenal – declaring a national emergency at the southern border. Since his emergency declaration back on February 15th there has been a never ending debate as to whether or not Donald Trump is within his powers as President to declare such a crisis a national emergency. Furthermore, it is being debated as to whether or not he has the authority to reallocate funding to move forward with securing the border. While the House does indeed hold the power of the purse, there is nothing stopping the President from reallocating military funding and amassing military assets at the border to move forward with building the wall.

To put it bluntly – President Trump is well within his rights as President to declare the crisis at the southern border a national emergency. And just to alleviate any doubt as to whether or not it is actually a crisis taking place, just today reports have come in that illegal border crossings have skyrocketed over the past few months.

According to the NY Times,

Arrests for illegally crossing the border reached up to 1.64 million in 2000, under President Clinton. In the 2018 fiscal year, they reached 396,579. For the first five months of the current fiscal year, 268,044 have been apprehended.

Now it’s time President Trump take a page from the Obama playbook in which he stated, “If Congress won’t act, I will” – and President Trump has done just that. The only difference being, what Trump is doing is actually Constitutional as opposed to the countless unconstitutional executive actions Obama took throughout his time in office. Declaring a national emergency is a power that was granted to the President by Congress back on September 14, 1976 and since then numerous national emergencies have been declared 31 of which are still in affect today.

Could a Future President Issue a National Emergency on Gun Control

Sure enough as soon as President Trump declared the border crisis a national emergency, the clowns in Congress including their ring leader Nancy Pelosi ran to the podium to scare the American people – mainly Conservatives – into thinking a future Democrat President could some day issue a similar national emergency to implement gun control. This couldn’t be further from the realm of possibility as the right to bear arms is codified in the Constitution via the 2nd Amendment. Therefore, a future President could by no means issue any sort of executive order to revoke an explicitly outlined right found in the Bill of Rights. This correlation was nothing more than a failed and pathetic scare tactic designed to keep people from supporting President Trump’s national emergency declaration.

The Left’s Attack on The Electoral College

Had crooked Hillary Clinton actually managed to persuade voters in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Ohio that she would have somehow made for a better President than Donald J. Trump, the electoral college would be considered the most ingenious thing ever conceived by man. Fast forward roughly two years, and we are seeing an outright attack on the electoral college simply because the Democrats lost the election. Prior to the election, we were told time and time again that there was no path for Donald Trump to get to the coveted 270 electoral votes needed to win the Presidential election.

Not only did Trump hit 270, he blew it out of the water and as a result the left became even more outraged then they were when people said men shouldn’t use the women’s restroom regardless of what they identify as.  And since then there has been an all out assault on the electoral college as the left is determined to turn our Constitutional Republic into a direct democracy – otherwise known as mob rule – in which the 51% can vote for whatever they want leaving the 49% to deal with the repercussions.

We Are Not a Democracy

The term democracy has been tossed around lightly for quite some time now, and it has come to the point in which many in the United States actually believe that we are indeed a democracy. That couldn’t be further from the truth, and if the government run educational system taught our children what we pay them to teach our children, the youth of today would realize that we are actually a Constitutional Republic.

While certain aspects of our republic could be referred to as more democratic seeing as local and state elections are often times be decided using a popular vote system in which the person with the most votes wins.  That isn’t the case though when electing our Commander in Chief.

Every four years we head to the polls to cast our vote for the next President of the United States, and those votes are tabulated for all to see. But in reality it is a body referred to as the electoral college that makes the final decision as to who our next President will be. Throughout history there have been five instances in which the candidate who went on to win the Presidency actually lost the popular vote including the most recent election. In the 2016 Presidential Election Donald Trump lost the popular vote yet won an astounding 306 electoral college votes far surpassing the 270 votes needed to secure his place in history as the 45th President of the United States.

The Importance of the Electoral College

While there is suddenly much debate surrounding the electoral college – due in large part to the fact that President Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the past election – it is essential that we fully understand just how important the electoral college really is. Had Hillary Clinton won the election this discussion wouldn’t even be taking place right now, nonetheless the butt hurt liberals in the northeast and on the left coast are up in arms and trying to destroy the only electoral process we have that ensures each and every state throughout this great nation of ours is represented equally.

According to the US National Archives,

The Electoral College consists of 538 electors. A majority of 270 electoral votes is required to elect the President. Your state’s entitled allotment of electors equals the number of members in its Congressional delegation: one for each member in the House of Representatives plus two for your Senators. Read more about the allocation of electoral votes.

Without the electoral college our nation would essentially become a mob rule state in which the masses in the big cities would be the deciding factor in our national elections. This would leave the “fly over states” – as many on the left like to refer to them as – stranded with no representation.

The whole of the country would be run like the failed cities of New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles which would result in overbearing draconian laws and regulations spread across the country. And with a direct democracy, the majority located in the highly populated cities would dictate to the rest of the country how they would live.

As of right now many will write off this issue as a non-starter and some may even toss around the term conspiracy theory, but this idea of commandeering the electoral college to implement mob rule shouldn’t be taken lightly. It’s up to us to expose the left and this devious plan to throw away what the founders put in place, without the electoral college the voices of millions of Americans will be silenced forever!

Trump Defends Free Speech on College Campuses at CPAC 2019

Free speech is something many take for granted, yet it has been under assault for quite some time now on college campuses throughout this great nation of ours.  College campuses used to be the place for free thought and the free exchange of ideas, a place where it was possible to “offend” others without worrying about receiving an unexpected punch to the face much like Hayden Williams did on the campus of UC Berkeley.

Hayden was working as a representative from the group Turning Point USA taking part in their campus outreach program when he was approached by a snowflake as we like to call them – someone who was offended by the fact that Hayden was simply exercising his right to free speech.  After approaching Hayden the assailant who has since been identified and arrested by police outright punched him in the face.

This is just a microcosm of what is going on on college campuses throughout the country and many seem to have no problem with it whatsoever.  There have been countless interviews conducted throughout the country in which college students go on camera openly discounting such attacks because they feel that these individuals like Hayden deserve to be assaulted simply for exercising their right to free speech.  What is more ironic is that these individuals that essentially condone this type of behavior claim to be tolerant and understanding.  I guess it’s safe to say the in these cases the loudest voices for tolerance come from some of the most intolerant people.

Trump Stands up for Free Speech on College Campuses

It has surely taken quite some time to get to this point, but we finally have a President willing to address the issues many face on college campuses when it comes to free speech.  Today at CPAC President Trump outlined his plan to issue an executive order that would hold college campuses accountable when it comes to defending their students right to free speech or face consequences.

 

President Trump explained

“We reject oppressive speech codes, censorship, political correctness and every other attempt by the hard left to stop people from challenging ridiculous and dangerous ideas. These ideas are dangerous,” Trump said. “Instead we believe in free speech, including online and including on campus.”

“Today I’m proud to announce that I will be very soon signing an executive order requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research grants.”


Our first amendment right to free speech is under attack on college campuses throughout the country, it is up to us to ensure that free speech remains alive and gives students and every single American citizen the ability to openly discuss their thoughts and opinions without the fear of reprisal.  Whether the left likes it or not “hate speech” as they like to call it is not illegal – and the more they classify principled conservative talking points as hate speech the more we will fight and we will win!

Jim Acosta Proves Walls Work

End the Shutdown, Build The Wall

As the government shut down becomes the longest one in this nation’s history, the debate rages on over whether or not the government should approve funding for what has been known as “Trump’s Wall”. Therein lies the problem, while Trump has indeed referred to the wall as “his wall” – it is essentially our wall as securing the border protects each and every American citizen who resides inside the wall.

Nonetheless the media aka the propaganda wing of the Democrat party continues to carry on about how walls don’t work, walls are suddenly immoral, and the government must continue to hold hostage American workers simply because they are butt hurt that Trump has the balls to stand up to them on this issue!

Thank You Jim Acosta

Little Jimmy comes to the rescue.  As the debate rages over whether or not we should build the wall and whether or not walls work – Jim Acosta offers up some of his best “journalism” to date.  After all this is probably the most accurate journalism I have EVER witnessed him provide.

Clearly Walls Do Work

This top-notch reporting from Jim Acosta proves to everyone that behind the wall there is peace and tranquility, a stark contrast to the areas of the border where there are no walls and gangs roam free bringing drugs into our country, they traffic human beings, and much more. 

So the time has come for the American people to demand that Chuck and Nancy put up or shut up! The people held hostage by this shutdown are beginning to see the full effect of the shut down as are many government agencies that are going without funding.  And all fo this is happening due to the fact that Democrats are capitulating over a vital border barrier to protect the citizens of this great nation of ours.

Why Trump Wins with Twitter

The media waits with baited breath each and every morning to see what our Commander and Chief, President Donald J. Trump will tweet about today.  Entire throngs of interns scour the Twittersphere to see what the reactions are to Trump’s latest tweet while we all watch the media make complete fools of themselves as they trip over each other attempting to analyze his latest comments on the days current events.

Imagine having that sort of power!  Imagine being able to troll the mainstream media outlets, imagine having entire newsrooms sitting there drafting up graphics to accommodate his latest tweets.  It’s almost as if Trump is sitting there with a laser pointer and the media is chasing around his tweets like cats. 

And sure enough Trump was at it again.  Regardless of how busy Trump may be, he always finds time to weigh in on current events and even throw out a few Tweets just to keep the media in a frenzy.

Better get the popcorn ready because these were some classics…

This Tweet right here sent the media into a tailspin! The talking heads sitting at glass tables with network logo coffee mugs were just beside themselves that our President would dare make such a comment. 

What they fail to realize is the fact that the entire Stormy Daniels case was thrown out as  U.S. District Judge S. James Otero in Los Angeles ruled that Trump’s speech was protected by the First Amendment as the kind of “rhetorical hyperbole” normally associated with politics and public discourse in the United States.” And to top it all off, Stormy Daniels was even ordered to pay Trump’s legal fees.

It’s ironic in a way given the fact that many Democrats and liberals alike love the Constitution – only when it suits their agenda – never when it doesn’t.

Moving on from “horse face” to the Native American and Cherokee tribe member Elizabeth Warren.  In case you hadn’t heard, Senator Warren recently took a DNA test to determine once and for all that she is part Native American only to have it backfire “bigly”.  The test allegedly confirmed she does have Native American ancestry only to be called out by the Cherokee nation as a fake Indian.  The power Trump leverages with his Tweets and rhetoric is limitless as some surmise that one of the main reasons Senator Warren went ahead with the DNA test was because Trump started calling her Pocahontas. 

Yesterday Trump even weighed in on the debate between “Beto” O’Rourke and Senator Ted Cruz.  This is where Trump’s tweets have the most power.  Never before has a President had this type of power at his fingertips and used it so eloquently.  Trump isn’t afraid to call out the Democrats and liberal progressive minded socialists like “Beto” and expose them for what they are – big government Marxists. 

These Tweets by OUR President Donald J. Trump just scratch the surface of the gold mine that is his Twitter account.  This is his direct unfiltered line to the American people and that is exactly what drives so many in the mainstream media absolutely crazy.  President Trump can say literally whatever he wants and there is no way for the media to distort his words or contort his message to fit their Trump-hating agenda. 

Senator Warran Speaks for Democrats Putting Illegal Aliens Before Mollie Tibbetts

Putting the Illegal Alien First

Another Democrat, this time Senator Elizabeth Warren, comes to the defense of the illegal immigrant community when discussing the recent and tragic death of Mollie Tibbetts at the hands of what the media loves to call an “undocumented immigrant”.

According to Fox News,

The suspect in the murder of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts is a 24-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico who had been living in the area for up to seven years, officials revealed Tuesday.

Cristhian Bahena Rivera was apprehended more than a month after the 20-year-old University of Iowa student disappeared, Rick Rahn, special agent in charge with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, said during a news conference. Tibbetts was last seen jogging on July 18 near Brooklyn, Iowa — in Poweshiek County, where Rivera lives.

Since the news broke that Mollie Tibbetts killer is an illegal alien the media has gone dead silent on the story.  Sure you hear the obligatory reporting of the news but there is no in-depth commentary from the talking heads at MSNBC, ABC, or CNN like you would see if this were someone who had been the victim of a gun crime as that plays right in to their “if we could only save one life” mantra. This same mantra that is NEVER applied to victims of crimes committed by those residing here illegally.


If you had second thoughts as to just how the Democrats view the issues we face in this country when it comes to securing the border, Senator Warran speaks openly about how she’s more concerned with the separation of illegal immigrants at the border than she is about the tragic death of Mollie Tibbetts.

If that’s not enough, the pseudo-intellectual talking heads at MSNBC clearly aren’t too concerned with Mollie Tibbetts either as they mocked Fox News for spending too much time on the story.  They felt the Michael Cohen and Manafort issues were far more important as they continue their war on the Trump administration.

It’s abundantly clear the Democrats only care about one thing, catering to the illegal immigrant community as they realize they are their only voting base left as they have exploited just about every other group of voters in the country.

Is The Press the Enemy Of The People?

Can We Trust the News We See and Hear?

FAKE NEWS!

This is a term coined by our President Donald Trump throughout the campaign and is still parroted today by both Trump and the news media.

In fact, President Trump has since doubled down on the fake news media calling them the enemy of the people. This truly struck an accord with the already spiteful talking heads at outlets like CNN, MSNBC, NBC, and ABC as people seem to be waking up to obviously bias reporting each of these organizations produces. There is an obvious bias when it comes to their reporting as the vast majority of what they report is negative and largely circumstantial with no real definitive basis to their logic.

Even the Washington Times reported on the obvious bias in the media when it comes to reporting on the accomplishments of our President Donald Trump…

It has been a pattern since President Trump was inaugurated well over a year ago. Coverage of the White House on the “Big Three” broadcast networks — ABC, CBS, and NBC — remains 91 percent negative, according to a new study by the Media Research Center, which has been tracking the phenomenon since Mr. Trump hit the campaign trail in 2016.

It was over 90 percent hostile then — and remains so now. The trend is unprecedented, according to the analysis.

If the countless articles and reports of the vastly negative media coverage our President has received throughout his time in office isn’t enough, a Harvard study shows just how the media has covered Trump since his inauguration.

When the “free press” gathers together to call for a war on the Trump administration because they feel he is too critical of them it is important we look at things from a 30,000-foot view and realize that the majority of the coverage the Trump administration has received has been largely negative.  It’s time the those that call themselves “news” outlets start reporting news rather than simply feed us their biased opinions.
