The enemy within: Sen. RINOs join Dems to restrict Trump & Update

March 15, 2019

Republicrat senators, in a shameful display, voted with Democrats Thursday to block President Trump’s declaration of an emergency at the southern border.

The president declared the emergency after being blocked by congressional Democrats in his efforts to secure our southern border and halt the steady stream of illegal invaders, crime, drugs and human trafficking. Many traveling with children fraudulently claim to be family units to enhance their changes of being granted asylum.

Businessman Donald Trump —- based on his stated promise to build a border wall, rose like cream to the top of his sixteen bottlenecked opponents in 2016. Most of them have since vanished from the political consciousness. He then demolished problem-plagued Hillary Clinton in the General Election.

Now, instead of coalescing behind the man who resuscitated the Republican Party, spineless Republicans are expressing concern that by invoking the National Emergencies Act, the President is exceeding his authority. This is preposterous on it’s face.  

Although the left is going ballistic over President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to secure our southern border in response to congress’ failure to act, the ability to do so is not a new construct emanating from the Trump White House.

The National Emergencies Act was enacted by Congress in 1976, when it was signed into law by President Gerald Ford. It has no specific definition of what is considered an emergency, but has historically been invoked during unusual threats to the nation. There have been 58 national emergencies declared since the act‘s inception. Thirty-one of them remain in effect today.

In 1979, Pres. Jimmy Carter initially put the act to use to declare a national emergency freezing all Iranian government assets in the U.S. in response to the Iran hostage crisis. His national emergency is still in place and has been renewed annually by successive presidents, as required by law.

Pres. George W. Bush declared national emergency acts following the September 11, 2001 attacks. In all, he declared 13. As president, Barack Obama declared national emergencies on 12 foreign relations issues that have also been renewed.

Yet in the House last month, a dirty dozen plus one Republicrats voted in unison with the united Dems 245-182 to pass a resolution rejecting President Trump’s declaration. Thursday’s 59-41 roll call vote on H.J. Res. 46 in the Senate will send it to Trump’s desk. President Trump has indicated he will veto it.

Contemptible Senate Republicans who appallingly voted with Democrats are Lamar Alexander (TN), Roy Blunt (MO), Susan Collins (ME), Mike Lee (UT), Jerry Moran (KS), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Rand Paul (KY), Rob Portman (OH), Mitt Romney (UT), Marco Rubio (FL), Pat Toomey (PA), and Roger Wicker (MS). Arizona Sen. Martha McSally supported the president.

Regardless of what Republicrats and Democrats assert, President Trump absolutely has the authority to declare a national emergency on the border. He has that authority because Congress explicitly gave the power to the executive branch in 1976.

President Trump has just signed the first veto of his presidency:

Pres. Trump is right to declare a National Emergency

February 16, 2019

The left, exemplified by the Hillary-endorsing, Arizona Republic newspaper, is going ballistic over the National Emergency declaration called for by President Trump after he signed onto the substandard budget bill which provides scant funding to the promised and increasingly crucial border wall. He did so to overt another government shutdown. The left’s nefarious scheme revolves around the single fact that increasing the Democrat voter base is best accomplished by allowing millions of illiterate illegal invaders who will be constantly reminded who went to bat for them.

Today’s edition of the failing newspaper headlines, “Trump declares border emergency” with the tagline. “Grab for wall funds is certain to trigger lengthy legal fight.”

Democrat leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have vowed not to fund the wall. They and their ilk suffer from a genetic affliction that allows them to say “barrier” and even utter the word “technology,” but “wall” can’t make its way past their lips. Technology was tried and failed under First Homeland Insecurity Chief Michael Chertoff. In 2008 we wrote, Virtual fence is a virtual flop.”

Construction of a security wall to staunch the ongoing illegal invasion, was the campaign message that resonated with the American people, propelling political novice Donald Trump into the presidency over 16 other Republican aspirants.

Although the left is going ballistic over President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to secure our southern border in response to congress’ failure to act, the ability to do so is not a new construct emanating from the Trump White House.

The National Emergencies Act was enacted by Congress in 1976, when it was signed into law by President Gerald Ford.

Outraged headlines have been the order of the day only since Donald J. Trump was dramatically elected on November 8, 2016.

Adding to the radical anti-Trump deception, today’s Arizona Republic carries a “Your Turn” column by Lisa Urias, titled “A tale of two walls.” The PR exec describes a funded trip she and “Latino leaders” took to Israel, and makes this insultingly inane comparison: “Despite (what she refers to as “challenges”) never once during a recent trip did we hear Israeli leaders suggest their neighboring states were “criminals, rapists and horrible people.”

Of course not. They are murders, who have a history of bombing school buses and where teachers often carry rifles and armed guards are onsite to protect students. Israel’s wall has been an effective security tool for the tiny nation surrounded by sworn enemies.

These are the schizophrenic views of Democrats, before and after the election of President Trump.


Second Amendment freedoms under assault

February 15, 2019

Pay attention: This is just the beginning as Socialist agenda gains traction

The unambiguous Second Amendment is under assault by leftists, but nowhere is the attack on our constitutional right more vigorous than in what is becoming the repressive People’s Republic of California.

In 2018, the NRA partnered with its state association, the California Rifle and Pistol Association to once again sue the state, challenging the state’s restrictions on sales of ammunition.

A portion of the Safety for All Act of 2016, (scroll past the letter to read the bill) known as Proposition 63 –– which goes into full effect in July 2019 ––requires a background check to buy ammunition. Retailers will be legally obligated to log the amount of ammo gun owners purchase. That record will then be sent to a Justice Department database.

At the time, Lt. Governor Gavin Newsome, a co-author of Prop 63, responded to the lawsuit by stating, “California voters made their decision loud and clear that guns and ammo do not belong in the hands of dangerous individuals,” a disingenuous way of characterizing law-abiding gun owners. Using more honest language, he also declared, the state “would fight the NRA every step of the way.” Newsome is now the governor. He blames everyone but the lax sanctuary city policies he has endorsed and presided over.

A lawsuit was filed by Kim Rhode, six-time Olympic medal winning shooter who set a record winning her first gold medal at the 1996 Atlanta Games five days after her 17th birthday. She has been joined in her legal action by gun retailers across the nation.

A court-ordered temporary injunction has blocked portions of the law from taking effect, including a clause which makes large-capacity magazine possession a misdemeanor.

The Democrats are doing all they can to suppress our rights. The NRA stands as a bulwark in maintaining our freedoms.

Disgraceful groping of triple-amputee hero at Tucson airport

February 10, 2019

Gateway Pundit exposes the despicable groping of Purple Heart triple-amputee vet Brian Kolfage at Tucson International Airport Saturday, following the We Build the Wall” town hall.

Brian Kolfage set up a GoFundMe page to build the border wall and it has surpassed $20 million in donations with over 350,000 donors. He is proof that a patriotic American citizen has more commitment to American security than the Democrats in Washington, D.C.  For more information on how you can help, go to We Build The Wall.

After being contacted by The Gateway Pundit, Brian Kolfage said: 

“It’s unfortunate that every time I travel I get a full search and swabbed for explosives. It’s the times we live in. I understand the security concerns but it’s not TSA’s fault, it’s the policy makers in D.C. who have no clue what the real world is like; it’s a joke. It’s the same people who think there’s no issue at our border.”

“It’s amazing how our government is so worried about airport security with a triple amputee veteran in a wheelchair but everyday thousands of illegals are coming into our nation unchecked and killing Americans. I guess they turn a blind eye to them like they have to all the angel families.”

Military Times covered Brian Kolfage and his wife Ashley who married after he returned from Iraq, having suffered catastrophic injuries. They are the parents of two children and reside in Tucson. He graduated in 2014 with a degree in architecture from the University of Arizona, finishing among the top of his class despite having to learn to draw and write with his non-dominant hand.

This video was taken by a bystander at the airport, disgusted by what he was witnessing:


Dems OK barbaric infanticide, Republicans vote for life

January 31, 2019

Sanity still exists in the Virginia House of Delegates. On Tuesday Virginia Republicans rejected H.B. 2491, known as the Repeal Act, which would have repealed restrictions on late term abortions — even after a mother went into labor. The admission of the bill’s sponsor, Democrat Delegate Kathy Tran, of the ghoulishness of the procedure was the death knell for the bill allowing for aborting human infants minutes from birth.

A House subcommittee voted 5-3 to table the reprehensible proposed legislation. The vote was along party lines, with all of the Democrats voting for infanticide and all of the Republicans voting for life.

Tran is a Buddhist, born in Vietnam shortly after the end of the war. With the devastating loss of life so prevalent and causing her own family to flee to the United States, it would seem she’d have a special affinity for the sanctity of life — even more so as the mother of four children. But leftist politics obscures rational thought.

Todd Gilbert, Virginia’s Republican House Majority Leader, who has been honored as  Legislator of the Year and Defender of Liberty, questioned Tran about the bill during a hearing Monday. He asked Tran if a woman who has physical signs she is about to give birth could request an abortion if a physician alleged the birth could impair her mental health.

“Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth — she has physical signs that she is about to give birth. Would that still be a point at which she could request an abortion if she was so certified — she’s dilating?” he asked.

“Mr. Chairman, that would be a decision that the doctor, the physician and the woman would make at that point,” Tran replied.

 “I understand that,” Gilbert, a former prosecutor, replied. “I’m asking if your bill allows that.”

With not a moment’s hesitation, Tran replied: “My bill would allow that, yes.”

Last week, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed S2796 into law. The Reproductive Health Act, is a bill permitting abortion through the end of the third trimester. So proud was Cuomo of what he glorified as the “Woman’s Equality Law,” he even made sure the World Trade Center was bathed in celebratory pink lights. What’s not to celebrate about killing your own newborn as he or she takes its first breath?


Pres. Trump’s WH speech addresses national security, border crisis

January 9, 2019

Last evening, President Donald Trump made the compelling case for addressing the crisis on our southern border.

His prime time speech (9 minutes) was delivered from the Oval Office, stressing the seriousness of the issue that he is willing to go to the mat to fund. The partial government shutdown continues, with “non-essential” workers temporarily furloughed. These are the facts.

Pres. Trump is asking for $5.7 billion for security construction, a small percentage of what we give to foreign nations for their security. More than 200 countries receive American foreign aid. (Numbers supplied by the U.S. Department of State.) Additionally, the U.S. is assessed at 22% of the U.N.‘s budget to bolster the organization that consistently votes in opposition to our interests and those of our allies.

This Jan. 4, 2019 letter sent to members of Congress details the facts and figures relating to the open border and criminality. It also includes these words:

“It is the sovereign right of every nation to establish an immigration program in its national interest—lawfully admitting those who have followed the rules, while denying entry to those who break the rules or fail to meet the requirements established in law.

A nation that fails to control its borders cannot fulfill its most basic obligations to its citizens—physical safety, economic security, essential public services, and the uniform protection of our laws.”

In 2006 The Secure Fence Act (view senate votes) won the majority of Democrat votes and even Republicrat amnesty proponents McCain and Kyl supported it, along with Obama, Schumer, Hillary Clinton, Biden, Durbin, Specter and Feinstein.

Watching last night’s Democrat rebuttal was a study in political absurdity, with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who voted for border wall funding in 2006, now steadfastly opposed to any such measures due to his animosity towards Pres. Trump. Schumer currently calls a wall “ineffective.“ Pro-abortion House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who knows something about her description, termed the wall “immoral.”

It would be interesting to know if Catholic Pelosi had a similar discussion with Pope Francis, who lives in safety and security behind a massive 50-feet-tall, ten-feet thick wall surrounding the fortress that is Vatican City.

Unblinking, zombie-like Pelosi questioned the facts of a crisis posed by the thousands of illegal invaders caravanning through Mexico to our border from the Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. After arriving at the border, these folks who so desire to be Americans, waved flags of their native countries and hurled rocks and bottles at the U.S. Border Patrol agents.

President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will attend the Senate GOP Policy lunch today and will follow that by hosting a bipartisan group of congressional leaders at the White House.

Donald Trump won the 2016 presidency after distinguishing himself from 16 other Republican Primary Election candidates by campaigning on securing the border. 

Not dissuaded by the obstinate Democrats, he will travel to the U.S.-Mexico border Thursday to further detail the need for a wall.
