Trump Just Announced His New Border Wall Plan After Congress Didn’t Listen To Him

Published

on

President Trump campaigned and got elected on his promise to build a wall on our southern border with Mexico. It was one of many promises he made that he will keep in the end. Both the Democrats and the Republicans have been obstructionists when it comes to building the wall… so Trump is seriously considering going around them.

Last week, President Trump let it be known that he is considering a new border wall plan using military resources to finish the construction of his long-promised border wall instead of relying on Congress to fund the project through the Homeland Security Department’s budget. I hope he does it. He could utilize the Army Corp of Engineers and they would do a fantastic job building the http://cdn.br/id.tv/live/partners/11372/sd/291190.mp4wall.

Trump also won’t eliminate the possibility of a government shutdown over the wall issue if Democrats keep on blocking him from getting the money he needs for the wall. I’m also all in for a government shutdown over this if it necessary. Just do it.

“We have two options,” Trump told the DailyMail.com aboard Air Force One as he flew from Billings, Montana to Fargo, North Dakota. “We have military, we have homeland security.” I think that’s pretty blunt and to the point. It’s vintage Trump.

The president was asked specifically about using the Army Corps of Engineers as a taxpayer-funded construction crew. That’s not his first choice and he would prefer “the old-fashioned way – get it from Congress – but I have other options if I have to.” You see the master negotiator at play here in his natural habitat.

Trump is getting ready to play hardball over the wall. Republicans are not helping as much as they could here. And for some reason, they don’t seem to get it that if Trump got his funding for the wall it would help them in the midterm elections. Sigh.

The Commander-in-Chief is seeking approximately $25 billion. Considering it’s costing Americans over $100 billion a year to fund the handling of illegal immigrants, I’d say that’s a steal.

From The Daily Mail:

“The possibility of diverting Pentagon funding and assets to build a border wall is a hole card the president is holding but has never directly acknowledged before.

“Two Defense Department officials told DailyMail.com in August that the Army Corps of Engineers could take on the task.

“‘They build levees that hold back massive walls of water,’ one said of the agency. ‘They can build one to hold back drugs and human traffickers.’

“The White House appears headed for another confrontation with Congress over an increase in funding for the project after securing $1.6 billion for 2007 and the same amount for this year.

“A senior White House official said Thursday that the money was ‘basically a down-payment on the thing’.

“The possibility looms that the president will refuse to sign the next federal budget, due September 30, if lawmakers don’t go along with more installments. That would trigger a government shutdown.

“‘If it were up – I don’t want to say “up to me,” because it is up to me – I would do it,’ he said aboard Air Force One, ‘because I think it’s a great political issue.’

“But he said some Republicans in Congress, facing tough re-election fights, have counseled more patience.

“‘They have races, they’re doing well, they’re up,’ Trump explained. ‘And you know, the way they look at it: might be good, might be bad.’

“Typically the party in power, in this case, the GOP would shoulder most of the blame for interrupted government services. National security and military operations wouldn’t be affected.”

During Trump’s rally in Billings, Montana last week, he told a Fox News Channel interviewer that “we need Republicans elected in the midterms. We are getting the wall done. But I’ve had so many people, good people, great people – they would rather not do [it] before [November]. They’d rather do it right after the election.” In my opinion, that’s exactly backwards. It’s just another stall tactic.

President Trump will never give up on the wall. He will keep pressing Congress to write the checks he wants. And one way or another, Trump will get the wall… of that, I have no doubt. It doesn’t matter who stands in his way. Trump will go around them or through them. Whatever it takes.

“Politically speaking, I’d rather get it through Congress. If we don’t, I’m looking at that option very seriously,” Trump adamantly stated aboard Air Force One on Friday, referring to the Defense Department.

In Sioux Falls, South Dakota on Friday evening the president assured a crowd of about 600 supporters that “we’re building the wall! It works so easily!” he said. “They say walls don’t work? Tell Israel.” Exactly right. Israel is the perfect example of just how well a wall truly works.

Congress isn’t listening to Trump on the wall. I think the president has had just about enough of it and he’s considering all his options. That wall has to be built and Trump knows it. Get er done.

Major Staff Upheaval Underway NOW At White House – Trump’s Had It!

Published

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Reuters

Another round of upheaval engulfed President Donald Trump’s White House on Tuesday, with the future of several senior aides in doubt just a week after U.S. congressional elections.

Three Trump cabinet members – Chief of Staff John Kelly, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke – could soon be gone, said sources familiar with internal discussions in the Republican administration.

Turnover among White House personnel paused during the run-up to last week’s elections after senior Republicans asked Trump to refrain from firing staff, hoping to minimize perceptions of disorder.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions was forced out by Trump last week just hours after the results came in from the Nov. 6 elections, which handed majority control of the House of Representatives to Democrats.

Trump’s first 22 months in office have seen frequent shakeups. A study this year by the Brookings Institution, a think tank, found Trump’s White House has had the highest turnover of senior-level staff of the past five presidents.

In an unusual move, sources said, Trump was also ready to dismiss Mira Ricardel, deputy national security advisor, at the request of his wife, Melania Trump, after a clash between the two over the first lady’s recent trip to Africa.

Melania Trump’s office acknowledged the acrimony.

Trump was expected to remove Nielsen, a source close to the White House said. Nielsen took the job after Trump made Kelly his chief of staff. But now the president is considering getting rid of both them, the source said.

Zinke has been under investigation for several ethics controversies including travel and a business deal in his home state of Montana, casting doubt on how long he would remain at the helm of the agency.

A final decision on his future could be postponed beyond this week. He is scheduled to travel to California on Wednesday and Thursday to visit communities hit by deadly wildfires, the Interior Department said on Tuesday.

Trump last week said Zinke was doing an “excellent job” but left open the possibility of replacing him. “We’re looking at that, and I do want to study whatever is being said,” Trump told reporters last week.

Adding to the sense of upheaval at the White House, Special Counsel Robert Mueller was planning to file more indictments in his 18-month investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign, sources said.

Florida Dems Blindsided By Attorney General – She Demands Criminal Investigation

Published

on

In an effort that promises to go on at least until December to recount votes in Florida’s races for U.S. Senate, governor, and the state agriculture commissioner. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has now called for criminal investigations into ”irregularities” in the vote counting and the handling of ballots in two South Florida counties by Broward County’s Brenda Snipes who as is being reported now also was lucky enough to “find ballots” in 2012.

Here is more via Breitbart:

“Broward County, Florida election official Brenda Snipes — who is continuing to find new ballots in the recent statewide midterm elections for Governor and the U.S. Senate — was previously accused of finding ballots after an election in 2012.

Government Accountability Insititute (GAI) research director Eric Eggers exclusively told SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Tonight‘s Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour that Snipes allegedly “found ballots” following an election in 2012.

Eggers said:

She’s also been accused of illegally opening ballots. The Florida GOP sued her for this and when they brought her to court, they said ‘Hey, your office is opening ballots outside the presence of the canvassing board … what’s your explanation?’ And again, the woman in charge of elections in Florida’s second most populous county argued she thought it was okay because her office didn’t understand the meaning of the word ‘canvassing.’ [Emphasis added]

This is also not the first time that her office has just found ballots. There was actually a canvassing official back in 2012 that complained that heading into a weekend, they were told there were about 150 votes left to be counted and then Monday morning, well actually there are about 950 votes still to go. [Emphasis added]

Eggers said there is “clearly an organized effort to manipulate and alter outcomes,” noting that in Miami-Dade County, about 108 provisional ballots were eliminated in the midterm election because they were from individuals who had voted twice.

In a recent piece for Breitbart News, Eggers reviewed Snipes’ history of allowing illegal aliens and felons to vote in elections in Broward County, along with her destroying of ballots.”

And here is even more on Snipes via Breitbart:

“On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Evening Edit,” Florida Lieutenant Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera (R) stated that nothing will be ruled out as a potential consequence for Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes (D) for her handling of the 2018 elections.

Lopez-Cantera said, “I’ll tell you going forward, nothing is going to be ruled out, as far as consequences for these horrible, horrible elections that she’s done here in Broward this year. Leading into the election, there were no indications, for the 2018 general election that there were going to be any problems. But, you know, she has shown herself to be clearly incompetent, and like I said, nothing will be taken off the table going forward.”

As of Tuesday Bondi had sent two separate letters to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Rick Swearingen and Secretary of State Ken Detzner where she expressed concern about FDLE’s comments Friday that it is working with Detzner’s office and will investigate reports of cases of voter fraud but had not received any reports as of Friday.

In a statement FDLE said an investigation had not been opened at this time.

“I am deeply troubled by your announcement that you will not pursue any investigation or inquiry into clearly documented irregularities of election officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties,” Bondi wrote Swearingen.
