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.

Kavanaugh Accuser Unravelling – Hit With Stiff Ultimatum After Ignoring Senate’s Inquiries

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

Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins said she finds it odd that Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of high school-era sexual assault, will not respond to inquiries from the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“That’s very puzzling to me. I have said from the beginning that these are very serious allegations and she deserves to be heard. She’s now being given an opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee and to answer questions and I really hope that she doesn’t pass up that opportunity,” Collins said to a group of reporters in the Dirksen Senate Office Building Tuesday morning.

This comes as Ford previously said she would be willing to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Collins has been on the fence on her support for Kavanaugh, and mentioned to reporters Tuesday she would like to see the “two attorneys who are representing Judge Kavanaugh and Professor Ford do the questioning for the first round and then go to the committee for questions.”

“It’s not unheard of to have counsel do questioning,” she added. “[Ford] will be represented by counsel. And I think it’s important that we hear from both Professor Ford and Judge Kavanaugh under oath in a public hearing.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed Democrats for bringing forward a 36-year-old accusation of misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh, on the Senate floor Monday.

Mueller Investigation Comes To Screeching Halt After Anti-Trump Dem Exposes His Fatal Mistake

Published

...

* By

Bob Woodward, an investigative reporter who works for The Washington Post, has been in the business of ‘dirty little secrets’ so long that he was part of the team who cast a light on Richard Nixon during Watergate. In fact, once Fox News even called him a Watergate legend. Well, it has become quite obvious that now he has his sights set on President Trump and his administration. In fact, he makes it very clear where he stands when it comes to President Trump in his new “secret” book, ‘Fear’.

Yes, it was a secret because he told no one about it for the past 19 months he’s been writing it. He wanted to keep a ‘low profile’ while he researched what he planned to include in the book. There was a press release for ‘Fear’ that described the book as “an unprecedented look into the harrowing life inside Donald Trump’s White House and how the president makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies”.

Woodward claims that he engaged in “hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources”. It is for this reason, we can tip a hat to the man’s work ethic despite the difference of opinion we have with him regarding President Trump and the administration. I am going to show you why right now.

Bob Woodward had an interview with Hugh Hewitt recently, in fact just a few days ago. In this interview what he revealed arguably gives President Trump supporters a very good reason to send a fat “IN YOUR FACE!” telegram to Democrats.

Check this out!

“So let’s set aside the Comey firing, which as a Constitutional law professor, no one will ever persuade me can be obstruction. And Rod Rosenstein has laid out reasons why even if those weren’t the president’s reasons. Set aside the Comey firing. Did you, Bob Woodward, hear anything in your research in your interviews that sounded like espionage or collusion?” Hugh Hewitt asked Woodward.

“I did not, and of course, I looked for it, looked for it hard,” Woodward answered. “And so you know, there we are. We’re going to see what Mueller has, and Dowd may be right. He has something that Dowd and the president don’t know about, a secret witness or somebody who has changed their testimony. As you know, that often happens, and that can break open or turn a case.”

“But you’ve seen no collusion?” Hewitt asked again to confirm.”

“I have not,” Woodward affirmed.”

Hewitt would once again ask Woodward about collusion at the conclusion of the interview.

“Very last question, Bob Woodward, I just want to confirm, at the end of two years of writing this book, this intensive effort, you saw no effort, you, personally, had no evidence of collusion or espionage by the president presented to you?” Hewitt asked.”

“That is correct,” Woodward said.”

Now if that isn’t satisfying to read, I don’t know what is. Not once, but twice Woodward clarified that he did not find ANY evidence of collusion during his research. This is coming from the same investigative reporter that was called at one time ‘a legend’ for his work. I mean, this is a man who is known for his extensive interviews with first witnesses, and research into documents, meeting notes, calendars, and even diaries. He is praised for how he constructs seamless narratives of events that he tells through the eyes of actual key participants.

Even the left knows this about him.

So, you can bet that him saying not once, but twice that he found zero evidence of collusion, is going be a real slap in the face for the left. Maybe if we listen very carefully we will be able to feel the tremor being caused by a nation full of ‘triggering’ liberals right this very second!

But I digress…

Despite this, there is still a lot of manipulative work he put into the book as well. For example, the petty stuff he made sure to include, was absolutely ridiculous.

Things such as:

“Fear: Trump In The White House also details President Trump’s explosive rants.”

“He is said to have called Attorney General Jeff Sessions “mentally retarded”, allegedly adding: “He’s this dumb Southerner. … He couldn’t even be a one-person country lawyer down in Alabama.”

I’d like to give a moment now to Trump, to clear things up on this.

There were also many schoolyard claims about White House Chief John Kelly such as the following:

“White House chief of staff John Kelly frequently lost his temper and referred to President Donald Trump as “unhinged” and an “idiot,” author Bob Woodward writes in his new book “Fear: Trump in the White House.”

We can clear that up to, since the book’s release Kelly has had something to say about this claim.

“Kelly, in a statement Tuesday, denied the claims as simply “not true.” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders also refuted the book’s claims.”

“Kelly said in his statement that “the idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true . . . . As I stated back in May and still firmly stand behind: ‘I spend more time with the President than anyone else, and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship. He always knows where I stand, and he and I both know this story is total BS.'”

“I’m committed to the President, his agenda, and our country,” Kelly said. “This is another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump and distract from the administration’s many successes.”

“Sanders said Tuesday that “This book is nothing more than fabricated stories, many by former disgruntled employees, told to make the president look bad.”

Needless to say, the book ‘Fear’ is just another ‘he said, she said’ work created with the purpose of adding fire to the left’s agenda and casting doubt upon the shoulders our President, but do you think it will have that effect at all? We want to know what you think!
