Mr. President, The Ramifications Of A Shutdown Are All Good

A truism in American politics is that Republicans never win elections unless they are nationalized. The continued threat of a shutdown over border security, or better yet an actual shutdown, can only help Republicans nationalize the election on the issue of border security.

The Looming Amnesty Disaster For Republicans

Speaker Ryan has put in motion an amnesty vote that is bad news for those who prioritize national sovereignty and border security.

Yes, senators can work in August

Editors, Washington Examiner

Yes, McConnell’s move can be viewed as a shrewd, partisan political maneuver. It makes sense to keep all the senators in school during campaign season when your party has just one vulnerable Senate incumbent, and the Democrats have six or seven. But it goes beyond that. The August recess has always been a dubious institution.In short, the cancellation of the August recess is a win for everyone. Let’s hope Senate Republicans use the time wisely.

Yes, The Border Wall Is Being Built

Construction started Friday at Border Field State Park in San Diego. The old wall was only 10 feet high, the new wall will stand between 18 and 30 feet tall, include an “anti-climbing” plate and replace over 14 miles of improvised border fencing built in the 1990s out of scrap metal and repurposed steel plates.

If Republicans Really Control The Senate…

If Republicans really control the Senate, then why are they making confirming Republican President Donald Trump’s department heads and subcabinet posts so difficult?

A new FedUp PAC poll found that 90% of those responding agreed that “Congress should pass legislation to secure the border and send home the illegal aliens already here.”

Democrats Oppose Sending Troops To The Border

Have Republicans figured out how important supporting the President on this is from the conservative perspective?

Trump Places National Guard In Support Role On Southern Border

This is not 2012 or 2006, the situation has changed, and the American people expected that after the 2016 election the southern border would be secured.
