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.

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.

Time to End the Unconstitutional DACA Debacle

DACA Was and Still is ILLEGAL

We have clearly been side tracked by the democrats yet again simply because they know that deep down Trump is not about to budge when it comes to DACA. He realizes that the DACA legislation was and still is completely unconstitutional.  Obama said it himself he did not have the ability to essentially legalize those who arrived here illegally, yet he still took it upon himself to draft up this legislation granting “legal status” to thousands of “dreamers” who currently reside in the United States illegally.

Only Congress has the authority to write law as well as oversee any legislation regarding citizenship status in the United States.

Article 1, Section 8, Claus 4 of the US Constitution,

The Constitution empowers Congress to “establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization” – or, more simply stated, to make universal rules about giving foreign-born residents of the United States the “privileges of native” born residents.

One must essentially be born here or undergo the proper, legal process of becoming a United States citizen.  Thus the line has been blurred greatly by the Obama administration and their illegal attempt to legalize those who came here despite our legal immigration process. Even worse, they have turned DACA into nothing more than an emotionally charged political football just as they do with nearly any controversial program or piece of legislation.  This is the ONLY way they can get anyone to back whatever misguided, often times unconstitutional bill they are advocating for.

We will soon see the DACA mess started by Obama come to a head.  Regardless of the outcome it is important to understand just how the immigration process was supposed to work and how it still should work today.  Nothing has changed and Obama had no right to impose legal status on those residing here illegally.

The Plague that is the Sanctuary City

Time We Defy Federal Statute and Take Back Our Constitutional Rights!

We have been lectured time and time again about the weight federal statutes have on the way state and local governments run their municipalities. This is being taken a step further as we are now seeing liberal circuit judges cropping up from liberal hell holes around the country to defy Trump’s actions with regards to a variety of immigration policies; policies he is attempting to enact that fall within the confines of the office of the President.

If these federal justices run amok want to defy federal law then I say conservative judges do the same when it comes to the federal government instituting legislation that infringes on our constitutional rights. The federal government after all has absolutely no right to enact legislation to restrict the 2nd amendment or any other portion of the Constitution, and it’s time we see judges defy the liberals on this and other over reaches by the federal government.


We watched a liberal federal judge in Hawaii block Trump’s imposed travel restrictions from various Middle East countries with known ties to terrorism. Thus activist judge played the typical liberal rhetoric trying to convince Americans that this travel order was somehow racist towards muslims when in actuality it was essentially the same travel restrictions put in place by Obama when he was in office. Of course we didn’t hear a damn thing from the liberal media when Obama restricted travel in to the United States, affecting the people he holds most dear. (Oops did I just say that)


Nonetheless, we are seeing the exact same thing play out again as Trump is starting to clamp down on sanctuary cities by restricting federal funds if they don’t comply with federal statute.

According to Fox News,

The ruling from U.S. District Judge William Orrick III in San Francisco said that Trump’s order targeted broad categories of federal funding for sanctuary governments, and that plaintiffs challenging the order were likely to succeed in proving it unconstitutional.

The decision will block the measure for now, while the federal lawsuit works its way through the courts.

The news comes on the heels of the Department of Justice threatening on Friday to cut off funding to eight so-called “sanctuary cities,” unless they were able to provide proof to the federal government that they weren’t looking the other way when it came to undocumented immigrants.

I love how all of the sudden the liberal, Obama appointed judge are constitutional scholars! Where were they when Obama was wiping his ass with the constitution and throwing open our borders to vagrants from every third world hell hole known to man? I know that may sound a bit harsh but it’s maddening when we see judges all of the sudden discover the Constitution when it can be twisted to suit the liberal cause of the week.

It’s time we all wake up and understand what’s at stake here. Trump has the best interest of the American people at heart as he tries to rid this country of the plague that is the sanctuary city!
