Trump's failure to get border wall built becomes 2020 campaign promise anew

Joseph Curl, Washington Times

Last Friday, Donald J. Trump For President Inc., released a new video, just hours before the president boarded a plane to fly to the U.S.-Mexico border to view construction of a portion of a new barrier there. Americans don’t much expect their politicians to follow through on every promise. So they’re likely to go along for the ride again as Mr. Trump pledges to build a border barrier — even though he failed to do so last time he made the promise. Bottom line: It was a winning issue last election, and it might just be a winning issue this time around. And Mr. Trump has known that since the minute he won the White House.

Ken Cuccinelli For Secretary Of Homeland Security

Running the Department of Homeland Security for President Trump, and getting the Trump agenda accomplished will take spine, smarts, media savvy and the ability to think creatively to get the job done. Of all the good names that have surfaced Ken Cuccinelli is the only candidate who checks all those boxes.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen Out

Now that Kirstjen Nielsen is out we hope the President will finally grasp that personnel is policy and begin appointing senior officials who actually believe in and want to accomplish his agenda, starting with the Department of Homeland Security and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

Mr. President Close The Border

More than 100,000 illegal aliens are poised to cross the US border into Texas — a crisis threatening to overwhelm facilities  for housing asylum seekers. There is no question that President Trump has the legal authority to close the border; that has been done by previous presidents with no one questioning that authority.

14 House Republicans Stab America In The Back

Clearly the appropriations clause is not a suicide pact. If 1/3 of a million Red Chinese were poised to cross our southern border the President would have the power to act if Congress dithered because he has the constitutional duty and authority to act as Commander-in-Chief to protect the sovereignty of the United States and the lives and property of its citizens.

The Indispensable Rep. Louie Gohmert

All too often we must ask CHQ readers to call Congress to protest some anti-conservative action by the so-called leaders of the Republican Party. Today we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Rep. Louie Gohmert’s office (1-866-220-0044) to thank him for his steadfast conservative leadership and especially for his successful efforts to gain the release of Sgt. Derrick Miller. (Pictured above Mrs. Renee Miller, mother of Sgt. Derrick Miller and Rep. Louie Gohmert)

Students Love The “Green New Deal” Until They Hear What’s In It

The problem for Democrats is now obvious: Having created their army of brainwashed little climate change monsters, the have to keep moving Left to satisfy their appetite for bigger government, more regulations and more laws and more limits on what we can do, more restrictions on what we can think and say and become, and the “Green New Deal” is just the start.

Conservative Grassroots Send Sen. Roy Blunt A Message About The Wall

Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri, the fourth-ranking Republican in the Senate, was the only member of GOP leadership to vote for the Democrats' resolution of disapproval intended to block President Trump's emergency declaration. Now the Christian County, Missouri, Republican Central Committee has disinvited Blunt from their annual Lincoln - Trump dinner.

The Paul Ryan Border Disaster Forces Trump Veto

Keeping the focus of his veto message on the facts of the situation on the border was probably the wisest course for the President, but let’s be brutally honest; the reason President Trump was put in this situation was because of the abject failure, or perhaps outright treachery of former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

12 Republican Senators Vote To Maintain Disastrous Status Quo On Southern Border

The twelve Republicans who joined the Democrats and voted to disapprove President Trump's declaration of an emergency on our southern border represent a cross section of the fractured and out-of-touch Capitol Hill Republican Party’s coalition of virtue signaling windbags, constitutional nincompoops and globalist establishment tools.

Build the Wall to Save Taxpayers Billions

Betsy McCaughey, The American Spectator

President Trump launched another battle for border wall funding, calling for $8.6 billion in his proposed federal budget for next year. Top Democrats came out swinging, bashing a border wall as “expensive and ineffective.” Truth is, Dems are not leveling with the public about the billions we’re already forced to spend on caring for them. Not to mention the costs of public schooling and healthcare provided free to migrants once they are released into communities. The wall will pay for itself in less than two years. It’s a bargain.

Trump Tackles The Deficit That McCarthy, Ryan And Boehner Ignored

President Trump’s budget is an excellent blueprint for reorganizing government, gaining many efficiencies and it funds the wall and the continued rebuilding of our military. However, it is only as good as the President’s willingness to fight for it by vetoing Democrat deficit spending bills and holding the Capitol Hill GOP’s feet to the fire to sustain those vetoes.

Can Trump Stop the Border Invasion?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

If, as appears probable, President Trump is not going to be able to build his wall and all the security measures taken in this century prove inadequate to stanch the invasion of America, how does it all end? Or is this the endless invasion, where the future is decided on our 1,900-mile border with Mexico, and we, as the last superpower, are a pitiful, helpless giant too morally paralyzed to stop it? And if Trump does not stop it, who will? And what will failure mean for America’s future as one nation and one people?

Yes, The Southern Border Is At The Breaking Point

You know things are bad when the New York Times runs an article with the headline, “Border at ‘Breaking Point’ as More than 76,000 Unauthorized Migrants Cross in a Month.” We could quibble and point out they are illegal aliens, not “unauthorized migrants,” but why argue details when your enemies are finally helping you by telling the truth for a change?

Say It Ain’t So Rand, Say It Ain’t So

We think Senator Paul came to the conclusion to oppose President Trump's declaration of an emergency on our southern border without reading the entire Constitution. Otherwise he would recognize that Article II and Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution provide that the President has a constitutional duty to defend the borders and sovereignty of the United States that congressional dereliction cannot frustrate.

Did Trump Lock-Up 2020 In One Speech?

President Trump correctly identified the issues at bar in 2020 as the American dream versus the socialist nightmare. Democrats are already helping President Trump put their socialism on trial by embracing socialist candidates,  and by ratcheting-up the socialist rhetoric. It is up to us conservatives to make sure Trump obtains the conviction.

100 Years Of Teaching Children Lies About America

How did we get to a place where 64 percent of the men and women defending our country believe it is the source of most of the world’s ills? Over the next month we are going to explore that question, and the first part of the answer to that question is that our education system has become a vehicle for teaching children to despise their own country, its founders and its founding principles. #theLeftLies

Media Ignores Great Economic News… Again

Inflation-adjusted disposable income rose 4.2 percent, last quarter, and America’s working families are seeing a continued gain in their disposable income, and thus a continued improvement in their quality of life. This is not only good news for America’s working families, it is good political news for President Trump, which is probably why it was buried by the establishment news media.

GOP Senator Thom Tillis Flakes On Border Emergency

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senator Thom Tillis and other Republican Senators and Representatives TODAY. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) tell them there IS a national emergency on our southern border, and that under Article II and Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution the President has the authority and duty to declare an emergency on our southern border.
