BORDER SECURITY: Remember when Democrats agreed with the majority of Americans that border security was a really good thing? Me too. President Trump has set February 15 as his deadline for Republicans and Democrats in Congress to reach a bipartisan agreement.
Meanwhile, dozens of illegal aliens who have been detained for having willfully ignored U.S. immigration law and crossed the border unlawfully are now refusing to eat. Let that sink in. They are protesting the fact that we are enforcing the laws they got caught breaking. Immigration officials are being forced to feed them through tubes, which will no doubt set off Democrat outrage in 3-2-1.
BORDER INSECURITY: “On any given day some 2,000 individuals attempt to come into our Country illegally. Every day that our border remains unsecure is a gift for human traffickers, drug cartels, and gang members—and a loss for Americans who believe the rule of law shouldn’t disappear at our doorstep.” – Vice President Pence
U.S. border agents in Arizona seized 254 pounds of fentanyl, in what was the biggest single bust of the most powerful opioid ever made. Fentanyl is a synthetic drug which is 100 times stronger than morphine and can kill with a 2-milligram dose.
245 pounds of Fentanyl is enough to kill every man, woman, and child in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Antonio, San Diego, Dallas, and San Jose combined … TWICE OVER.
In Calexico, CA, Border Patrol agents apprehended a deported child molester and kidnapper who had illegally re-entered the U.S.
BRAVO, BORDER PATROL: Working without pay, BP agents apprehended a stunning 17,000 aliens who crossed the U.S. border illegally during the government shutdown. — While Democratic congressmen were busy vacationing in Hawaii and partying in Puerto Rico, BP agents also impounded thousands of pounds of drugs and busted more than a dozen stash houses.
GOFUNDME WALL UPDATE: Recently, there was speculation in the media that the funding contributions would have to be refunded to their donors, as per GoFundMe’s regulations, should the campaign fail to reach its $1 billion goal. But, Kolfage and his supporters found a work around; all donors now have the option to ensure that their contributions go toward building the wall, and so far, 93% of donors who responded have chosen to do so. Meanwhile, all donations from after January 11 will go directly toward funding the border wall via Kolfage’s GoFundMe campaign, now renamed: “We Build The Wall.” According to Right Wing News, Kolfage is not being paid or compensated for his efforts in building the wall. His family is provided for by his own coffee company Military Grade Coffee.
TDS: MAGA HATS! — According to CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon, people who wear MAGA hats should expect to be a target of hatred and expect people to assume the worst about them. Newsbusters analyzed the specious arguments he offered for approving of a D.C. restaurant that has a “No MAGA hats” policy.
TDS: Russia! Russia! Russia! — The nerve of that bastard Trump to do something that doesn’t benefit Russia! Except … literally every NATO member is behind the U.S. on the move.
TRUMP ECONOMY: Ya’ know, with all of the sob stories the Left was feeding everyone during January about the federal employees going without paychecks, spending their savings, and having to resort to food lines, you’d think the economy itself would have really tanked since government is so super duper important. Not.
CORPORATE WELFARE FAIL: Eight years ago, Electrolux took more than $100 million from city, county, and state governments — Thursday, they announced they’re shutting down their Memphis plant and putting 530 people out of work. I saw this happen in my home town too. Tax breaks allowed a national company to force two local, multi-generational family businesses to close. The minute the tax breaks expired, the national company closed up and left town. By then, it was too late for those old, family-owned businesses. And for the community they had served for so many years.
COMMON CORE FAIL: Another Obama era program bites the dust — And good riddance. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis issued an executive order to begin the process of removing Common Core standards from Florida’s public schools. The Governor said he wants to streamline standardized testing, make civics a priority in schools, and increase the rate of literacy. More than likely it will take about a year to complete the switch over.
BISHOP E.W. JACKSON: It’s time to leave the Democratic Party — In New York City, black women have more abortions than births, a rate far higher than any other racial or ethnic group. Margaret Sanger’s intention was to eliminate the black race. The organization she founded, Planned Parenthood, is succeeding at this genocidal goal. Bishop Jackson has dubbed Black History Month “Coming Out Month” for the black community to make a mass exodus out of the Democrat Party which has “become an unclean thing.”
RESURRECTING THE ERA: My rep, Tom Reed, is backing yet another attempt to pass the so-called Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). I just wrote to him with this:
I hope you will seriously consider the opposition’s arguments.
In 2008, one of our leaders, Phyllis Schafly wrote: “While claiming to benefit women, the ERA would actually have taken away some of women’s rights. We based our arguments on the writings of pro-ERA law professors, among them current Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The amendment would require women to be drafted into military combat any time men were conscripted, abolish the presumption that the husband should support his wife and take away Social Security benefits for wives and widows. It would also give federal courts and the federal government enormous new powers to reinterpret every law that makes a distinction based on gender, such as those related to marriage, divorce and alimony. … Meanwhile, the pro-amendment crowd could not show how the ERA would confer any benefit on women, not even in employment, because employment laws were already gender-neutral.” http://articles.latimes.com/2007/apr/08/opinion/op-schafly8
We not only do NOT need the ERA, but also and more importantly, passing it could do irreparable harm to women, children, and families.
WHO’S AFRAID OF HOWARD SCHULTZ: From WSJ — “The way progressives are denouncing Howard Schultz, you’d think he is Donald Trump’s first cousin. The former Starbucks CEO said Sunday he might run for President as an independent in 2020, and Democrats have since been shrieking like teenagers at a horror movie. They seem to fear a policy debate, which is exactly why a Schultz candidacy could be good for the country, including Democrats.”
LEFT WING ACTIVIST DEAD: He pulled a gun and fired on police officers … AT A MIDDLE SCHOOL — Crickets from the media. On January 11, a man named Charlie Landeros was shot and killed by police outside a Eugene, Oregon middle school. After a review by the local prosecutor, it was determined that the officer who shot Landeros was justified in doing so because Landeros had pulled a gun and fired twice before the officer returned fire. The scuffle with police was captured on the officer’s body camera and can be seen at the link below.
John Sexton at Hot Air ponders, “Given the police shooting, Landeros’ prior threats against police, his radical politics, the angry response from activists, and (maybe) the incendiary devices—you would think this might become more than just a local news story. But so far it seems that’s not the case. I wonder why the national media isn’t eager to report on this armed left-wing extremist?”
Dear John, It’s very simple. For the Left Stream Media, if it doesn’t fit the Progressive agenda, then it didn’t happen.
