UniParty Pulling Bait And Switch On Trump Wall Funding

The UniParty on Capitol Hill is doing an elaborate little Minuet to convince you that there’s just no support for the Wall. Here’s the first Partita of the Minuet according to The Hill: The Senate leadership on Tuesday struck an agreement to vote on dueling proposals to reopen the federal government, not secure the southern border.

The New York Times Attacks Us Deplorables, I Fight Back: Part 1 of 3

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
NYT columnists Sam Rosenfeld and Daniel Schlozman apparently believe that we deplorables who voted for Ronald Reagan in 1980 and Donald Trump in 2016 are unworthy to govern and we should simply cede power to the Leftist elite and resume the status of the powerless victims we were prior to the rise of the Reagan coalition and the modern conservative movement.

Trump Immigration Proposal Boxes In Democrats

Should Democrats kill the Trump proposal – as we believe they will – the President should feel empowered to begin to explore executive action to address the national security crisis at our southern border – including using the military to construct an effective border wall.

It’s All About the Wall

Roger Kimball, American Greatness

The Democrats obviously believe that because of the government shutdown, they hold a winning hand of cards. I think they are completely mistaken. The president has shown both that he is willing to compromise in good faith and also that he is willing to inflict serious pain on the Democrats should they refuse to meet him halfway. It would be a good thing for us all if Democrats stopped acting like petulant children and started taking the commonweal of the country to heart, instead of performing for their dwindling and disgusted constituency.

Democrats refuse to compromise on border wall funding to end the shutdown

Vice President Mike Pence, USA Today

The American people deserve to know: Democrats refuse to negotiate on building the wall. Even as we face a crisis on our southern border, and as 800,000 federal workers go without paychecks, Democrats in Congress have been unwilling to seriously discuss even partial wall funding. President Trump and our administration will not be deterred by the Democrats' obstruction. The American people want to see action, and we intend to deliver. It’s time for Democrats in Congress to do their job, negotiate in good faith, and reach an agreement.

Politics of Immigration

Walter E. Williams, Townhall

Tucker Carlson has a four-part explanation for the Democratic Party's changing position on illegal immigration. He says, "One: According to a recent study from Yale, there are at least 22 million illegal immigrants living in the United States. Two: Democrats plan to give all of them citizenship. Read the Democrats' 2016 party platform. Three: Studies show the overwhelming majority of first-time immigrant voters vote Democrat. Four: The biggest landslide in American presidential history was only 17 million votes. Do the math. The payoff for Democrats: permanent electoral majority for the foreseeable future. In a word: power."

In border fight, Democrats want 'technological wall' that won't keep anybody out

Byron York, Washington Examiner

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California says a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border would be "immoral." Instead, she favors something she calls a "technological wall." The problem is, a smart wall would not actually wall off intrusions. Indeed, the main feature of a smart wall — in past debates, it was often referred to as a virtual fence — is that it will not stop anyone from crossing the border into the United States. It can detect illegal crossers and alert authorities to their presence. But it does nothing to keep them from entering the country.

A Bold Plan for a Trump Victory

Conrad Black, American Greatness

Palsied and pompous and generally over-stuffed with undeserved deference though the constitutional American system is (and blustery and sometimes inelegant though the president sometimes is), this is the showdown the nation needs. Let the Democrats stop creeping around in the dark, feeding malicious falsehoods to the jackal media. Let the president address the illegal immigration issue squarely. Let those who would try to undo the electoral verdict of 2016 with spurious legal casuistry and media manipulation come out from the dark and try to make their case.

Saving The Earth At The Point Of A Bayonet

The only way the Green New Deal could be accomplished would be through the forced relocation of millions of workers and their families in a massive societal restructuring akin to the forced collectivization of Russian agriculture after the Soviet Revolution of 1917 or Chairman Mao’s Great Leap Forward economic restructuring of Communist China.

The Path to a ‘National Emergency’

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

What should Trump do now? Act. He cannot lose this battle with Pelosi without demoralizing his people and imperiling his presidency. Since FDR, we have had presidential government. And when U.S. presidents have been decisive activists, history has rewarded their actions. Trump should declare a national emergency, shift funds out of the Pentagon, build his wall, open the government and charge Democrats with finding excuses not to secure our border because they have a demographic and ideological interest in changing the face of the nation. "America First!" is still a winning hand.

Terrorism Actually Does Kill Many Americans Via the Southern Border

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

A principal -- likely the principal -- partner of the cartel gangsters in their work is, and has been for many years, Hezbollah. The fruits of that alliance plus cash infusions from Iran--and therefore, to a regrettable extent, us-- are how the world's biggest terror army finances many of its murderous activities.  They sell the deadly narcotics to our people and use the money to kill others. Death for death. If you want to destroy and/or exploit a culture, addict it.  If you want to undercut a civilization you consider anathema and make some money in the process, "turn it on." That's what Hezbollah is doing.

Mr. President, No Surrender On The Wall

Though we don’t want to see anyone out of work or missing a paycheck, why should anyone care more that a hundred or a thousand or ten thousand government employees are not getting paid - than for the survival of their country?

America’s Southern Border Isn’t Just a Crisis, It’s a Disgrace

Chris Buskirk, American Greatness

Some so-called conservatives defend the illegal immigration insanity in the name of a misunderstood devotion to markets or addiction to cheap, peasant labor. They seem to have forgotten that America is a country with an economy, not the other way around. And losing sight of that basic truth they’re destroying the basis of our shared liberty and prosperity. That is not just a national crisis, it’s a disgrace, and President Trump is right to insist that Congress act to protect the American people.

Nancy Pelosi’s immoral border stance

Katie Pavlich, The Hill

Democratic leadership and congressional members in the House and Senate say walls are immoral and they don’t work anyway. Of course, both of these things are untrue. The data, the stories and the ongoing crisis at the border prove it is important and the situation is dire. “I campaigned on Border Security, which you cannot have without a strong and powerful Wall. Our Southern Border has long been an ‘Open Wound,’ where drugs, criminals (including human traffickers) and illegals would pour into our Country,” President Trump tweeted. President Trump, rather than Speaker Pelosi, has the moral high ground.

Can Democrats Explain Why The Border Wall Is ‘Immoral?’

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

The notion that Democrats — who are ready to spend trillions on every newly concocted “right” — are hesitant to lay out $5. 7 billion is risible. If a wall were really ineffective, wouldn’t a trade for legalizing younger illegal residents be a feasible and legitimate compromise? It’s more likely that the wall is non-starter because 1: Democrats don’t want to sign off on a Trump agenda item — the political consequences would be too severe; and 2: Democrats’ leftward lurch has transformed any border security into “racist” position among the base of the party.

What V.P. Mike Pence Asked Conservatives To Do

Yesterday, CHQ Richard A. Viguerie and his team participated in a conference call with Vice President Pence about the Wall. It was a good call, but we think the Vice President underestimated what the President’s grassroots conservative-populist supporters would be willing to do to help get the Wall built and we have some additional action items to suggest.

Democrats keep proving how detached they are from reality

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Never in modern times has there been such a disconnect between the opposition party and the realities of national life. The very talk of removing Trump, without evidence of an impeachable offense, is a stick in the eye to history and most Americans. To be clear, the disconnect is not the product of policy differences, though they exist too. This is instead a mass outbreak of Trump Derangement Syndrome that, for those infected, can be cured only by undoing the results of the 2016 election. And if by some lightning strike they succeed, then what? Impeach President Mike Pence, too?

Why Democrats oppose the wall

John Feehery, The Hill

Let’s say Mr. Trump, in a press conference in October of 2020, is able to point to a huge steel fence on the outskirts of Laredo, Texas, and say that he delivered on his No. 1 campaign promise and then announce that he has a secret agreement that Mexico will pay for it. Who cares if the Mexican government denies it? The Trump base will be pumped and the government shutdown will be long-forgotten. That’s the worse-case scenario for the Democrats: A Republican president who can point to a wall to prove he keeps his promises. And that’s why Nancy Pelosi won’t give Donald Trump his wall. It’s not about morality or cost. It’s all about the politics.

Last Night The President Asked For Our Help, Are You In?

Last night during his Oval Office address on border security President Trump made a simple request of every American: To every citizen: call Congress and tell them to finally – after all of these decades – secure our border. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) call your Senators and Representative TODAY tell them #BuildTheDamnWallNow.

The Wall And The Shameful Silence Of GOP Leaders

Why shouldn’t the Democrats think they can win the fight over the Wall? For the past two years the GOP’s congressional leaders were shamefully silent whenever the subject of the Wall came up and stalled around avoiding any showdown with the Democrats that when won would have funded the Wall.
