Pres. Trump refuses to cave on border wall

December 12, 2018

Democrat hypocrisy: Method acting comes to Washington

During a public, televised meeting with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), President Trump announced he would be, “Proud to shut down the government for border security,” stating “border security is national security.” Funding for FY 2018 runs out Dec. 21.

Notice that Schumer refuses to make eye contact with the President as he says border security does not need a wall, and Pelosi repeatedly states the meeting should be held privately. Following the meeting at which she admonishingly shook her finger at the president, Pelosi later maligned his position on the border wall telling House Democrats, “It’s like a manhood thing for him. This wall thing.”

Democrat stalwarts, including Sens. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and Chuck Schumer, joined a roster of 26 Democrat senators who aligned with 54 Republicans and embraced the Secure Fence Act of 2006, signed by Pres. George W. Bush.  A dozen years later, Democrat’s visceral hatred of President Trump has dramatically changed their perspective.  This brief but illustrative video is provided by the Washington Post, a staunchly liberal publication.

The Center for Immigration Studies reports 63% of non-citizen households access welfare programs compared to 35% of native households. Net cost to taxpayers for every illegal who sneaks into the United States has reached nearly $70,000 —- seven times the cost of deporting them —- about $70 billion, according to 2016 federal Census data. 

Breitbart News covered a Harvard-Harris poll revealing dreadful immigration news for Democrats. The overwhelming majority of Americans —- 80% —- agree with President Trump’s pro-American immigration agenda. Those surveyed said that legal immigration to the U.S. should be based on skills and merit, rather than the current system giving priority to chain migration, linked to family members already in the U.S.

Democrats have long been hypocrites on fundamental issues of importance to Americans, as we noted in 2012, in our post titled, “Dem gun hypocrites,” demonstrating the double standard of Second Amendment restrictionists, Sen. Chuck Schumer and former Sen. Dianne Feinstein who both have concealed carry permits, but don’t want you to have the same access.


Fmer Mesa Police Chief George Gascon: Arrogance personified

December 11, 2018

It hardly seems like a decade ago we were writing about George Gascon, then Mesa’s police chief, who consistently advocated limp enforcement policies for illegal invaders.

Cuban-born Gascon left the East Valley city to heed the sultry siren’s call of far left San Francisco where he became police chief in 2009. Possessing a law degree, he was initially appointed in 2011 then elected District Attorney for the City and County of San Francisco by then-Mayor, now Governor-elect, Gavin Newsom. Gascon boasts about reducing crime rates —- by selectively charging crimes which he claims disproportionately target minorities —- while fighting construction of a much-needed new jail.

You might call it a bullet-like, precision-driven trajectory for this leftist in the Democrat-controlled city and county —- until it appears to have pitched and plummeted with a thud by way of arrogant missteps.

Gascon, the top cop and then district attorney, who should know better, haughtily thinks he is above the law. 

The December 9, 2018 edition of the San Francisco Chronicle reports on the lawsuit resulting from a former senior investigator who was fired for blowing the whistle on his boss, San Francisco District Attorney Gascon, whom he alleged carried a gun while flying —- in violation of federal law.

Gascon reacted with a “pattern of retaliation and harassment” that culminated in the termination of senior investigator Henry G. McKenzie on Oct. 30, 2017, according to the suit filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco.

In this Nov. 24  court filing, McKenzie says that Gascon repeatedly carried a gun onboard commercial flights in violation of federal law after becoming D.A. in January 2012.

According to the suit, members of the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office Investigators Association, which included McKenzie, discussed the “need to blow the whistle” on Gascon’s potential criminal violations in early 2017.

Tear gas? Dem hypocrisy, double standard, exposed

November 29, 2018

The mainstream media would have us believe that President Trump is nothing short of a demonic ogre for allowing tear gas to be used at the border to inhibit rock and bottle throwing illegal aliens from storming our sovereign border.

What a bad guy!  What a corrupt administration!

Yet according to data from the Department of Homeland Security first reported in The Washington Times, the identical tear-gas agent that the Trump administration is taking heat for deploying against a border mob last weekend is actually used fairly frequently — including more than once a month during the later years of President Barack Obama’s administration.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has used 2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile, or CS, since 2010, and deployed it 26 times in fiscal 2012 and 27 times in 2013. It was still being used in 2016, Obama’s final full year in office.

Border authorities also use another agent, pepper spray, frequently — including a decade-high record of 151 instances in 2013, also under Pres. Obama. Pepper spray, officially known as Pava Capsaicin, was used 43 times in fiscal year 2018, according to the CBP numbers.

The data poses a challenge to the current leftwing outrage over the Border Patrol’s use of tear gas Sunday to prevent a frenzied horde of illegals from breaking through sections of old border fence in California.

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, questioned the skewed reporting in the strongest of terms, asking where the critics were when tear gas was deployed during Obama‘s presidency.

This policy that we use was an Obama-written policy and it was used in 2013 at the same port of entry,” he told CNN, wondering in particular about the intense media interest now versus then.

Critics, including Latin American leaders, immigrant-rights advocates and congressional Democrats, have said use of tear gas is “un-American.”

“Un-American”? Maybe Obama was born in Kenya, after all?

Watch as Brandon Judd exposes the facts of the border situation in an interview on The Daily Caller TV:

Pres. Trump’s border message resonates with Mexico

November 25, 2018

In a couple of tweets, Pres. Trump sends unambiguous message

Follow @realDonaldTrump

Migrants at the Southern Border will not be allowed into the United States until their claims are individually approved in court. We only will allow those who come into our Country legally. Other than that our very strong policy is Catch and Detain. No “Releasing” into the U.S…

3:49 PM – 24 Nov 2018

….All will stay in Mexico. If for any reason it becomes necessary, we will CLOSE our Southern Border. There is no way that the United States will, after decades of abuse, put up with this costly and dangerous situation anymore!

3:56 PM – 24 Nov 2018

Reports confirm that the Trump administration has succeeded in gaining Mexican support of a plan to revise U.S. border policy by requiring that those claiming asylum status must wait in Mexico rather than enter the United States.  Currently, illegal foreign nationals — well-coached in asylum lingo — are given a hearing date for which few ever appear, quickly fleeing the border states they illegally invaded and evading authorities who have no verifiable means of tracking them. There was a backlog totaling nearly 750,000 cases as of the end of August. To put that in perspective, check out the populations of the cities on this list. That number exceeds the populations of Denver, Washington, D.C., and Seattle.

The accord is said to have been reached with Mexican officials and senior members of newly elected President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s transition team. Obrador is described as a “populist,“ a term often used to describe Pres. Trump. He will be sworn in on December 1, 2018 to serve a six-year term. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey is scheduled to attend Obrador’s inaugural ceremony.

A priority of his agenda will be will be to rein in the escalation of criminal violence. Last year, Mexico experienced a record-breaking 25,400 murders. Armed criminal gangs roam unimpeded, especially in the areas where illegal drug trade dominates the economy.

Tijuana Mexico yells “Uncle!” as invaders create havoc

Tijuana seeks international help to deal with gravity of invasion crisis

With its hypocrisy on full display, the Mexican border town of Tijuana, abutting San Diego, California, is reacting wildly to the thousands of Central Americans jamming its streets and overloading its facilities.

Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum has gone so far as to declare an international humanitarian crisis over the arrival of an estimated 7,000 supposed “asylum seekers” traveling in  caravans.

Their claims of asylum are clearly false, since they are not seeking safety in Mexico from what they contend are intolerable conditions in their native countries abutting Mexico.

Our not-so-neighborly southern neighbor colluded in allowing them to use its land as a passage to invade the United States. But when President Trump refused to grant border access to the human stampede, the result became untenable for Mexico.

During a Thanksgiving Day press conference Mayor Gastelum solicited help from the United Nations and other international groups to assist Tijuana deal with the mass of invaders he has called an “avalanche,” as he accused the Mexican federal government of neglecting their responsibilities to deal with the unwanted hordes of humanity.

“They have categorically omitted and not complied with their legal obligations,” he said. “So we’re now asking them and international humanitarian aid groups to bring in and carry out humanitarian assistance,” declared Gastelum. He previously said, “Human rights should be reserved for righteous humans,” clearly excluding those he derisively described as a “horde.”

Now that the shoe is on the other foot, Mayor Gastelum appears to “get it.” Native Tijuana residents have stormed their streets marching against the costly Central American invaders flooding their town, taking needed resources from the locals, who also fear increased criminality from the violent MS-13, territorial drug gangsters among the mostly young male invaders and losing jobs to those willing to work cheaper. 

If those concerns sound familiar, the best indicator of their validity is that Gastelum was recently seen wearing a red baseball cap emblazoned with, “Make Tijuana Great Again,” emulating President Trump’s popular election motto.

Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum finally “gets it.”

Pres. pardons turkey, CA Gov. Brown pardons Dem crook

November 22, 2018

Following in the pre-Thanksgiving tradition begun by President Abraham Lincoln, President Donald Trump pardoned a turkey. California’s own dual fowl turkey and lame duck governor, Leftist Jerry Brown also issued a pardon.

Joel B. Pollak, Senior Editor-at-Large at Breitbart News, has the complete report of the ongoing case including corroborating links.

The sentence of Democrat State Senator Roderick Wright — including 90 days in jail, three years of probation, and 1,500 hours of community service — following his conviction on federal perjury and voting fraud charges, was overturned by Jerry Brown. Less than upright Wright was also banned for life from holding public office.

While running to represent California’s 25th district in the state senate in 2008, Wright lied about his residence to qualify for the ballot. He claimed he lived in an Inglewood apartment complex within the district, but prosecutors presented evidence that Wright’s true residence was an upscale Baldwin Hills home outside the district.

Voter fraud and perjury are not unique to Wright. A plethora of other California Democrats were have also been charged with corruption.

According to this 2014 LA Times report, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Kathleen Kennedy wasn’t buying any of Wright’s excuses noting, “It didn’t pass the smell test and it doesn’t now. She added that there was an “arrogance” in Wright’s actions in trying to circumvent the law, an assumption “that the law doesn’t apply to him … the law applies to all of us.”

In addition to Gov. Jerry Brown, Wright’s supporters included none other than California U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, who somehow — after a 40-year career in D.C. — affords a 6.000 sq. ft., $4.3 million mansion on a congressional salary, and also doesn’t live in the district she claims to represent.

Illegals can’t speak English but can say,“Asylum”

November 19, 2018

Coached by their advocates and legal advisers, a new wave of Central American illegal invaders estimated at 7,000 are causing havoc at the California border and creating problems in Mexico, which refuses to accommodate them though allowing them passage through the country to invade the United States. Tactically posed photos depict women and children but the facts indicate the majority are young, unaccompanied men.

Texas Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert tells (video) Fox News’ Leland Vittert, “[Voters] have already held the House responsible … if we don’t fund this now –– it’s not going to happen.”

Gohmert is correct, of course. Thanksgiving is nearly here and the Christmas holidays are fast approaching, leaving little time for the current Republican-led House to fund the wall. The brief window is closing. After January, the new Democrat majority House members will be sworn in and funding for the wall will be nothing more than a fantasy. Democrats view the hordes of illegals as potential voters.

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow in classics and military history at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, former California State University (Fresno) professor, commentator and author, wrote this prophetic article for City Journal in 2002, Do we want Mexifornia? in which he addressed the flood of illegal immigration into California raising urgent questions that the whole nation must face.

We’re living in that future now.
