Tucker Carlson Is Right, But Who Is Responsible For This Disaster?

Tucker Carlson was right, “Ilhan Omar is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country.” And if Tucker is right, it is fair to ask who is responsible for this civilization-level disaster? We hold former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama responsible for introducing this poison into our society.

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 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.

The Two Americas Of The #2A

The Democrat Party’s radical attempts to infringe upon the liberties guaranteed by the Second Amendment is rapidly creating two systems of gun ownership; one in states where the letter and spirit of the Second Amendment is honored and one where state governments work to undermine it, if not repeal it.

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.

Eight House Republicans Join Democrat Gun Grab

HR 8 isn’t a crime prevention bill, it is part of the Democrats’ long-term plan to disarm the American citizenry to make us more pliable victims for the socialist utopia they plan to impose upon us. The next stop for HR 8 is the US Senate, we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators TODAY. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) urge them to vote NO on HR 8.

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.

Where Are The House GOP Leaders On The Border Wall?

Democrats will vote today on a resolution disapproving Trump’s Declaration of a National Emergency at the southern border, but so far House Republican “leaders” have mounted no serious or even visible counterattack to the sustained battering Trump has received at the hands of Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the #NeverTrump foreign policy establishment.

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.

Trump Is On Solid Legal Ground In Declaring A Border Emergency To Build A Wall

Sean Davis, The Federalist

Many commentators who have expounded on the legality of Trump’s decision have declared, without any statutory basis, that there is simply no border emergency, therefore everything Trump is doing on the matter is illegal. Some claim that the emergency does not require the use of a wall. Others claim that a wall does not constitute a military construction project. As demonstrated above, the plain text of the underlying statutes requires a neutral arbiter to reject these legal claims in their entirety.

Blame Congress for Trump’s Immigration Power Grab

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

High among the reasons Trump was elected was that, for all his flaws and failings, he was seen as a doer, a man who "gets things done." And high among the reasons that autocrats are on the rise is that the centrist parties being shoved aside are perceived as having failed the people in their most basic demands — fewer migrants, more secure borders, preservation of national identity, putting their own people and their country own first. Whatever may be said of the autocrats, they are not talkers but doers. They act.

'Never Trumpers' are suddenly constitutionalists

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

These out-of-the-blue “constitutionalists” have lined up alongside the open border Democrats who for years have airily dismissed U.S. citizens’ alarm over the open border as a “manufactured crisis.” These critics are all of a sudden worried that Mr. Trump will overreach his executive authority. Even more fundamentally, they cringe, this action by a president will forever grant unchecked new powers to every future president. Give me a break.

Democrats Rush To Criminalize Gun Ownership

Our friends at Gun Owners of America recently sent out an alert about HR 8, the House Democrats’ first gun bill of the 116th Congress, saying, “Nancy Pelosi and her anti-gun team are either profoundly stupid or genuinely evil,” and after reading the anti-Second Amendment legislation Democrats are rushing through Congress, we’re going with genuinely evil.

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.
