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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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

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.

Mr. President, Here’s What You Must Tell The American People Tonight

The Left has made its opposition to the border wall clear. So, the President should use tonight's address to make Democrats own the effects of their policies and brand them as the Party of the murder, drug pushing, economic upheaval and chaos that their policies have brought to our country. Only by using the proven technique of a primetime TV address pioneered by President Ronald Reagan can President Trump make those dangers known to the American people.

On Syria Donald Trump Finally Acts Like President Trump

Washington’s overall objective should be to bring peace to America, not micro-manage other nations’ conflicts. Washington policymakers come up with long lists of objectives which are not worth the cost, in this case essentially permanent war. Withdrawal from Syria is long overdue.

What The Supreme Court Said And Didn’t Say About The Travel Ban

The majority of the Supreme Court rejected the claim that Trump's Executive Order illegally discriminated against Muslims, concurring with Chief Justice John Roberts that, “The sole prerequisite set forth in federal law is that the president find that the entry of the covered aliens would be detrimental to the interests of the United States. The president has undoubtedly fulfilled that requirement here.”

Cleaning House Is Not Enough

Cleaning house of the Obama – McMaster – Tillerson holdovers at State and the NSC isn’t enough. President Trump's national security team needs, not just a house cleaning, but a complete staff renewal that will reinvigorate it with seasoned professionals who share President Trump’s national security goals and will implement them, instead of undermining them.

Fear, loathing and John Bolton

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Bluster is an effective weapon in the hands of someone who knows how to use a weapon. Mr. Bolton, like the president, has never been interested in being polite to the imams in Tehran or to Rocket Man in Pyongyang. He has never been a fan of nation-building, particularly when it means deconstructing the nation and everything about it, from its history, culture, even its religion. He’s not a fan because it can’t be done.

Strategic patience is dead — long live America first

Sebastian Gorka, The Hill

Whether the threats to our nation are physical or economic, overt or political, they will be met head on and in a way that makes it clear that a world without America leadership is a dangerous world and that in a world in which American leadership is reasserted, all people of good faith and good conscience can profit and be more secure.
