Spending Deal Stipulates Border Security Funding Can't Build Concrete Wall

Bridget Johnson, PJ Media

The omnibus spending bill to avert a government shutdown Friday won bipartisan support from congressional leaders and backlash from House conservatives heading toward a vote later today in the lower chamber. The spending bill is 2,232 pages long and comes with a price tag of $1.3 trillion, and got White House backing despite not including anywhere near the $25 billion President Trump sought for a border wall -- and a stipulation that the money can't be used for that wall.

GOP Establishment Throwing Away Majority In Omnibus

We urge CHQ readers to call the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044) to ask for House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Tell Rep. McCarthy that if he wants to keep his Republican majority in the House there should be no internet sales tax in the omnibus, no funding for Planned Parenthood, no Chuck Schumer earmark for the bloated New York – New Jersey tunnel, no insurance company Obamacare bailout, no Ex-Im bank cronyism, and absolutely no new gun control in this year’s omnibus.

Adam Kinzinger: Empty Suit For Congress

Incumbent Congressman Adam Kinzinger is a prime example of what is wrong in Washington DC’s Republican establishment; out of touch, arrogant and thoroughly corrupted by DC’s insider lobbyist culture. We urge our friends in Illinois’ 16th District to vote for James Marter for Congress.

Democrats and RINOs Driving 2018 Omnibus Spending

We urge CHQ readers to call the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044) to ask for House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Tell Rep. McCarthy there should be no internet sales tax in the omnibus, no funding for Planned Parenthood, no Chuck Schumer earmark for the bloated New York – New Jersey tunnel, no insurance company Obamacare bailout and no Ex-Im bank cronyism in this year’s omnibus.

This Week The GOP Decides Who It Is

The omnibus spending bill, slated to be an eye-popping, Obama-level $1 trillion-plus has become a catchall for practically every spending priority of the Democrats, while calls from conservatives for spending discipline and conservative policy riders have been given the cold shoulder by the House and Senate leadership.

Conservatives Want Ryan Out if Amnesty Passes House

Speaker Paul Ryan promised that no immigration reform bill would come before the House unless it was supported by a majority of House Republicans. If he breaks that promise almost 95% of conservatives responding to a recent FedUp PAC poll say that if Ryan breaks that promise he should be deposed as speaker and replaced by someone President Trump can trust.

Trump Amnesty Disaster

While the White House proposal technically ends chain migration and the lottery, it uses ALL those visas to bring in the 4 million people on the visa waiting list.  That means current immigration levels will continue for the next 10-15 years or more AND amnesty will be granted to a minimum of 1.8 million illegals.  These are permanent changes to America's electorate. If this passes the Trump proposal will make Republicans a permanent minority party and limited government constitutional conservatism a soon-to-be extinct philosophy of government.

Trump Snatching Defeat From The Jaws Of Victory On Immigration

The current level of immigration, even without amnesty, will add nearly 15 million new Left-leaning voters to our polity. Add to that amnesty for millions of mostly Mexican and Central American DACA beneficiaries and Trump will make Republicans a permanent minority party and limited government constitutional conservatism a soon-to-be extinct philosophy of government.

Now Is The Time To Crush The Democrats

It is inconceivable to us that Republican “leaders” cannot grasp what a strong political position they now hold vis-à-vis the Democrats, and how the future of their majority now balances on a knife’s edge. We urge CHQ readers to call the toll free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044), ask for House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senator John Cornyn, tell them conservatives will bolt the GOP if they trade ending the #SchumerShutdown for amnesty for illegal aliens.

Trump Shoots Down Senate Liberals’ Amnesty Bill

President Trump called the deal proposed by Senators Flake and Durbin “horrible” on border security funding, the President also said the deal was “very, very weak” when it came to the White House’s preferred changes to the legal immigration system. "It's the opposite of what I campaigned for," the President.

Getting The Immigration Bills Straight

Extending DACA or passing a larger amnesty bill before we build the promised border wall, before we take other actions to improve border security, before we beef up internal enforcement of our immigration laws, and before we remove the incentives to come and stay in America illegally would be a colossal mistake.

Should a Wall Protect the Super Bowl?

Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

Physical barriers can be used to stop people from going where they have no right to go; they are not inherently immoral; and, given a cost-benefit analysis of what it is you are protecting and how much it costs to protect, they can be well worth the cost. A wall is neither moral nor immoral any more than a baseball bat is moral or immoral. What matters is the purpose for which it is used.

Trump Says What Normal Americans Think, Establishment Goes Nuts

We think all the establishment huffing and puffing about President Trump's "sh-thole" remark is cover for the fact that other than achieving their goal of fundamentally changing America, they have no answer for why we need more uneducated immigrants from underdeveloped countries.

Mr. President, Put Up That Wall

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

Trump's wall is a part of his overall immigration policy, which is intended to fix our “broken” immigration system. Candidate Trump argued that a country that cannot control its borders has very little claim to being a country. Last week President Trump spoke of building a wall costing eighteen billion dollars. He also spoke of reviving the confusing immigration laws. Go to it, Mr. President, and, by the way, develop a dress code for the White House. Be wary of shabbily dressed counselors.

Who Is Right: Rush Or Tucker And Ann?

So, who is right? Rush, who says don’t worry the President's meeting wasn’t about DACA, amnesty or anything but showing the world that Trump is in control and isn’t suffering from dementia. Or is it Tucker Carlson and Ann Coulter who say the meeting was a disaster, and perhaps the lowest point of Donald Trump’s presidency?

The DACA Lovefest At The White House

Ann Coulter and Rep. Steve King are right, the real goal of the latest immigration deal is not to merely grant some humanitarian-motivated relief to current DACA beneficiaries, it is to advance the ultimate goal of changing the United States into an open borders globalist econometric society stripped of any of the of the trappings of nationhood or American exceptionalism.

No Mr. President We Don’t 'Hope' To Work Out A Deal With Democrats

President Trump has completely confused many of his most ardent supporters with conflicting statements about the future of Obama’s anti-constitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that grants de facto amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.
