Democrats Move To Disapprove Trump Wall Emergency

House Democrats plan to file a resolution today seeking to block President Trump's emergency declaration aimed at securing funds for building a border wall.  A vote by the full House is expected in mid-March. If the House passes the resolution, then the GOP-controlled Senate would be required by law to take it up.

Assault on America, Day 51: #NeverTrump’s going extinct like the dodo bird … anyone care?

America is at political war and sooner or later everyone must choose sides. #NeverTrumpers think they’re neutral like Switzerland in WWII, but it doesn’t work that way. President Trump isn’t perfect but he’s on the right side -- and he has two years of accomplishments to back him up.

Assault on America, Day 50: Is Bernie Sanders the wave of America’s future?

Bernie Sanders will never be president. The fact he’s frequently mentioned as one of a few likely frontrunners in the 2020 Democrat presidential race is a poor reflection on a party that’s quickly slipping its tether to reality. How low will the Democrats sink? Time will reveal.

Assault on America, Day 49: Petrified Pelosi threatens ‘national emergency’ on gun violence

Democrats don’t need to advocate for taking away Americans’ gun rights but they do it anyway. Whether it’s for political considerations or just a plain “we’ve got to do something” sense of urgency, Democrats are on the wrong side of history with this issue. Who will stop them?

Assault on America, Day 48: Critics pounce but Trump did the right thing on national emergency

Politics is a nasty business, especially when elements of both sides care more about pleasing their powers-that-be than satisfying the will of the citizenry. Trump represents the “forgotten” people. He made the right call on the national emergency and we can only hope he’ll keep his negotiating skills intact.

Yes, There Is A National Emergency On Our Southern Border

Yes, we have a national emergency on our southern border when illegal aliens kill thousands of Americans every year and in southern Arizona’s Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, nearly half of all trails and sites are completely closed to the public due to high levels of illegal immigration and smuggling activities.

Assault on America, Day 47: Will the ruling class ever get serious about cutting spending?

If Democrats ever achieve large majorities in Congress and elect a party president the real fun begins. With their Green New Deal, Medicare for All and universal college tuition on the wish list, the sky’s the limit. All the more reason why Republicans should get their spending acts together today.

President Trump And Texas Governor Greg Abbott Can Use The Constitution To Build The Wall

Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution provides that the United States shall protect each state against invasion and domestic violence. With 369,000 illegal aliens arrested along the Texas – Mexico border last year and over 189,000 crimnal aliens arrested in Texas during the past decade Gov. Abbott has a textbook case for a request for assistance to repell the invaison and violence.

A Fake Border Security Bill

The worst parts of this bill are those elements that undermine the case for the declaration of an emergency at the border. That is the only way the Wall is going to get built, because it is clear that President Trump is not going to get any help from Capitol Hill’s Republican “leadership” and if the Wall is going to be built it will be done only through executive action.

Assault on America, Day 44: 2020 Democrats to run the impossible gamut of past and present

Political campaigns are always fascinating to watch as they evolve from beginning to close. Candidates must move with the flow as new revelations and events occur to change the narrative the media presents. For Democrats in 2020, that process starts now -- and it won’t end… ever.

Trump Weighing All Options For Wall Funding

It is clear that Capitol Hill’s establishment  Republicans have once again let down President Trump and the GOP’s conservative – populist base. The President is now weighing "alternative options" for building a border wall. It would be great if the Capitol Hill GOP would fight for the Wall, but if they won't President Trump should build it without them.

Congress Must #ReadTheDeal Before Voting

A 14-day continuing resolution would allow the House to go on their scheduled district work period and return to D.C. with a full week to work through amendments that will be needed by the Senate and White House to get the bill passed and signed into law.

Assault on America, Day 43: GOP leaders’ wimp out on border wall leaves few options for Trump

Short on options, it’s said Trump will sign the bad deal sent him by his party leaders on Capitol Hill. If the president hopes to get a barrier constructed, he’ll need to do so by other means. It just goes to show, once again, the GOP leadership simply can’t be trusted. Don’t go there anymore.

Capitol Hill GOP Caves On Border Wall Deal

President Trump may be on to the Republicans’ lack of fire in the belly for the Wall when he panned the deal yesterday during a cabinet meeting and said, “I’m adding things to it.” It is clear to us where the problem lies in getting the Wall funded and built – with Capitol Hill Republicans where it has always been.

Assault on America, Day 42: Who gave the media sanction to bash on Trump’s ‘Executive Time’?

The establishment news media’s worked overtime to portray Trump in every possible negative light and now they’re trashing his schedule because it contains too little priority for meetings and other official functions. Where journalists are concerned, if it weren’t for bad news there’d be no news at all.

Assault on America, Day 41: Do Dem leaders love fanatics enough to sacrifice everything?

Politics doesn’t need to be as complicated as today’s Republicans and Democrats make it out to be. The representative republic our constitution lays out should function to do the will of the people. President Trump is trying to do his part… will Democrat leaders stop the obstruction?

In Memoriam: Rep. Walter B. Jones, Lone Warrior For Liberty

We remember principled limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Walter B. Jones as one of the few men in Washington with the principles, integrity and humility necessary to look at the decision to enter the war in Iraq through the lens of subsequent events and take responsibility for the consequences of his vote.

Assault on America, Day 40: Look out! AOC and the Green New Deal socialists are coming!

The Founding Fathers never envisioned a government so powerful so as to control every aspect of citizens’ lives, but that’s what’s in store if the new breed of Democrat socialists succeed in enacting a “Green New Deal” someday. Their mindset is not only dangerous, it’s proliferating.

Assault on America, Day 37: Every four years people talk 3rd party… will it happen this time?

It doesn’t take placing an ear to the ground to claim Trump’s potentially vulnerable (especially if the wall isn’t built) and there’s something amiss down below. It’s premature to view Howard Schultz as a true challenger to the two parties, but it wouldn’t be a stretch to see him try.

Assault on America, Day 36: Dems’ abhorrent SOTU manners cast Trump in presidential light

Democrats exposed a window into their souls the other night, unable or unwilling to greet President Trump’s pro-American message and calls for unity with anything other than skulks and sneers. Americans hoping for political progress won’t take the Democrats’ behavioral excesses lightly.
