I’ve watched President Trump stand strong on the border and the illegal immigration issues. Sometimes he has compromised more than I like, but he’s always had a reason behind the move. He even signed an Executive Order yesterday that would keep families together at the border. Backing him up are those such as House Judiciary Committee Chair Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), who is proposing legislation that would keep those families together and deport them immediately. It would treat all illegal immigrants the same regardless of point of origin. President Trump also warned that he would cut off all funding to countries who abuse our immigration system. He’s ending that funding effective immediately and I applaud him for it.
It’s been a long time since we had a president with a real spine, one who doesn’t back down to the political pressure and threats thrown his way. Where I come from that’s called being a man of principle. Of course, I’m from the wild west where you are known by your word and deeds. On Tuesday, Trump met with the Republicans in Congress to hash out immigration legislation. It continued yesterday and ended with the EO. The Democrats are playing obstructionist politics and refuse to pass any bill on immigration even if it benefits them. They demanded that Trump sign the EO. When he did, they decried his executive overreach and said that you can’t put children in prison with their parents. They then moved to say that they should all be set free in the US and the borders should be thrown wide open.
At the National Federation of Independent Business, President Trump announced that the time of countries taking advantage of the United States by sending people to our borders is going to come to an end. The free ride and all-you-can-eat at the American trough of freebies is over. “We want to end the border crisis by finally giving us the legal authorities and the resources to detain and remove illegal immigrant families all together and bring them back to their country,” he told the crowd. It’s exactly what Goodlatte proposed.
“Think of all that aid that we give some of these countries – hundreds of millions of dollars we give to some of these countries and they send them up. I’m going to go, very shortly, for authorization that when countries abuse us by sending their people up — not their best (people) — we’re not going to give any more aid to those countries,” he said. The US is about to embark on a merit-based immigration system, which is the sane way to handle all of this and President Trump’s actions here are making that move a reality. Trump also said, “Why the hell should we? Why should we? This is a responsible, common-sense approach that all lawmakers should embrace, Democrats and Republicans.” He’s right of course.
This isn’t a new stance for the president. He has said many times in the past that he has no interest in sending aid to countries who take advantage of our immigration system. Last April, Trump tweeted, “The big Caravan of People from Honduras, now coming across Mexico and heading to our ‘Weak Laws’ Border, had better be stopped before it gets there. Cash cow NAFTA is in play, as in foreign aid to Honduras and the countries that allow this to happen. Congress MUST ACT NOW!”
The president is upset that children are being separated from their parents, but he also pointed out that it’s a result of Democrat-supported loopholes in the law. “I don’t want children taken away from parents, and when you prosecute the parents for coming in illegally — which should happen — you have to take the children away,” he said. That’s what happens to any criminal in the US. “These loopholes have created a massive child smuggling trade. Can you believe this?” Trump stated. “In this day and age, we’re talking about child smuggling. We’re talking about women smuggling, in this day and age.”
“The smugglers know these rules and regulations better than the people that drew them, as a result there has been a 325 percent increase in minors and a 435 percent increase in the smuggling or attempted smuggling of families and minors into our country,” he said. “We’re stopping them all the time, by the thousands, but they still get through. We have no wall, we have no border security.” What the Democrats are doing is aiding and abetting human trafficking and white slavery. We have to stop this, build a wall and secure our borders before it is too late and this country is destroyed financially, politically and morally over all of this idiocy.
President Trump went on to slam the North American Free Trade Agreement, saying that “Mexico does nothing for us.” Which is true… in fact, they are trying to invade us with their people, gangs, criminals and drugs. “We can no longer be the stupid country we want to be the smart country,” Trump said, adding that Mexico is “not sending their finest (people).” It’s impossible to argue with that statement. Just take a look at Los Angeles where the Mexican gangs control the prisons and most of the city now.
President Trump is right. It’s time to put the safety and security of America first here. We cannot give in to the Marxist left. We must secure the border and build the wall. Cutting the aid off to these countries is the right thing to do and should have been done long ago.
Feinstein Just Caught On Hot Mic Making Huge Admission About Rape Accuser – It’s OVER!
It seems the Democrats’ last-ditch Hail Mary plot to delay the confirmation of Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh may be a complete bust. As the left continues to spew vile, if predictable, accusations, making every attempt to delay the nomination in the hopes that the 2018 midterm elections in November somehow, someway produce the results they desire, they keep fighting to regain Congressional control.
Now the angry left is demanding that a Monday hearing on the allegations against Kavanaugh be delayed until the FBI has a chance to investigate. Turncoat Republicans (on whom the Dems had been depending for votes) proceeded to withdraw their support and fell in line after Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley declared that he would not honor the Democrats’ request.
Grassley is refusing to delay Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, currently scheduled for Thursday. This comes after lawyers for Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford, who claims Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than 35-years-ago back in high school, stated their client is not willing to testify or appear at Monday’s hearing.
Blasey Ford claims a hazy recollection of the incident.
She freely admits she does not specifically remember the year the supposed incident happened, where the incident occurred, whose house it was in, how she got there, and whether Kavanaugh and a witness – who denies Blasey Ford’s account in totality mind you – were already upstairs when she went up, or even how she got home on the night in question.
Sounds like a story with holes in it large enough to drive a truck through… yet Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) passed a letter bearing this vague and less-than-credible account of an alleged sexual assault some 36 years prior to the FBI demanding an investigation.
A letter that is believed to have been in Feinstein’s possession for more than six weeks in which she failed to turn it over for an immediate investigation, choosing instead to wait until the last minute of a highly contentious confirmation hearing.
Now Feinstein finds herself in a real conundrum when she was caught on a hot mic with some bombshell truths about Blasey Ford.
After a lone reporter accosted Feinstein coming out of her Senate office, the 85-year-old Senator stated late yesterday afternoon: “I have no say, I’m the lead Democrat. … I think it’s really too bad that no one called [Christine Ford], or called her lawyer,” Feinstein said.
Feinstein then slipped up big time, admitting: “This is a woman who has been profoundly impacted by this. Now, I can’t say everything’s truthful. I don’t know. But I do know that you’ve got to contact her lawyers.”
Did Feinstein have a senior moment? Or has she simply told so many lies that she has gotten confused with exactly what the truth is? She has no idea if this woman, Blasey Ford, is credible or even being truthful regarding her accusations of rape?
It seems the biggest lie of all is Democrats’ listing Blasey Ford as credible when in fact her accusations of rape have simply fallen apart. CNN and MSNBC are leading the charge as they rail at Feinstein in confusion and rage. They reported this as case closed and Kavanaugh is guilty until proven innocent, and even then? Maybe not.
Former Senator Barabra Boxer said on MSNBC, “This woman is to be believed. You can believe Dr. Ford. This was attempted rape. And this is a woman who exhibits, Dr. Ford, courage, but the classic signs of post-traumatic stress.”
Kavanaugh has denied Ford’s allegations and insisted he did not attend the party where the physical assault allegedly took place. Patrick Smyth, a fellow former Georgetown Prep student whom Ford alleges was also in attendance during the party issued a statement via his lawyer standing up for Kavanaugh.
In a separate letter to Grassley and Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, not only does Smyth repudiate Ford’s allegations, but he adds that he does not remember this party ever even taking place.
Smyth's statement is being cast as a denial. It's more nuanced than that.
"I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct…"

The Washington Examiner reports:
“There are multiple parts of Ford’s story that needs to be heavily scrutinized — the fact that the only alleged witness to the event denies it, the lack of evidence except for a therapist’s note that doesn’t name Kavanaugh and isn’t evidence from the time of the alleged event. She doesn’t remember much of the day except for the attack — she can’t recall when it happened, but believes it was the summer of 1982, nor can she recall how she got to the party, how she got home, or whose house she was in. She also discredits part of the therapist’s note that says four boys were in the room during the attack and now claims it was only two, a key detail that she chalks up to an error on the part of the therapist. Her only other piece of evidence is lie detector test results, which is junk science and inadmissible in court.
“In the Washington Post, Ford claimed that too many years had passed and she couldn’t remember the details, which is somewhat understandable. Yet it does still cast some level of doubt on her accusation as does her affiliation with left-wing political organizations and a letter from the American Civil Liberties Union she signed opposing Trump’s immigration policy.
“The doubt in Ford’s story is especially strong given that it follows no pattern. Kavanaugh has never been accused of sexual misconduct in the past and has led an exemplary life both professionally and privately.
“Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., also should be scrutinized for holding on to the records for weeks before revealing them and handing them over to the FBI. According to a report by the New Yorker, Feinstein’s staff believed the incident was “too long ago to merit a public discussion,” but may have changed their mind at a more politically opportune time.”

Trump Sends Earthquake Through D.C. With Announcement Of Who He Wants To Fire ASAP
President Trump on Monday said Justice Department official Bruce Ohr should be fired for his involvement in the Russia investigation.
In a tweet calling for Ohr’s firing, Trump also took a swipe at Attorney General Jeff Sessions, suggesting he does not have the resolve to ax Ohr. Sessions has recused himself from the Russia probe.
“Will Bruce Ohr, whose family received big money for helping to create the phony, dirty and discredited Dossier, ever be fired from the Jeff Sessions ‘Justice’ Department? A total joke!” Trump tweeted.
The president’s latest attack came days after he said he planned to pull Ohr’s security clearance and called him a “disgrace” over his ties to an opposition research firm that compiled a dossier during the 2016 campaign about Trump’s ties to Russia.
Revoking Ohr’s clearance could severely hamper his ability to do his job and would amount to derailing his career at the Justice Department. But Trump’s comments show he may want the department’s leadership to go even further.
Ohr has come under fire from Republicans for his links to Fusion GPS, the firm behind the controversial dossier. Fusion GPS hired former British spy Christopher Steele to compile the document about Trump during the campaign.
Ohr was demoted late last year after it was revealed he had contacts with Steele. Ohr’s wife, Nellie, also worked for Fusion GPS during the campaign. Trump and his GOP allies have used those ties to argue the special counsel’s Russia probe is tainted by bias.
“‘Bruce Ohr is at the center of FALSE ALLEGATIONS which led to a multi-million dollar investigation into what apparently didn’t happen.’ Darrell Issa, House Oversight. We can take out the word ‘apparently,'” Trump said in a subsequent tweet, citing the Republican congressman’s comments on Fox news.
Now, this is why we the people elected Donald Trump as our 45th president!
In a tweet, on Monday President Trump made his feelings known when it comes to Justice Department official Bruce Ohr by saying he should be fired for his involvement in the Russia investigation.
But he didn’t stop there, he also rightly so took a swipe at Attorney General Jeff Sessions by suggesting he does not have the resolve to ax Ohr after Sessions recused himself from the taking in any part of the Russia probe.
Will Bruce Ohr, whose family received big money for helping to create the phony, dirty and discredited Dossier, ever be fired from the Jeff Sessions “Justice” Department? A total joke!

This most recent latest by the president came only days after he said he planned to pull Ohr’s security clearance and called him a “disgrace” over his ties to an opposition research firm. Fusion GPS, which gathered the fake Russian dossier during the 2016 campaign about Trump’s ties to the Kremlin. This action would severely hamper Ohr’s ability to do his job at the justice department and would most certainly end his career.
Here is more on this via The Hill:
“Trump has targeted Ohr as part of a broader effort to retaliate against key figures involved in the Russia probe, which is examining ties between his campaign and Moscow’s interference in the 2016 election.
The president has already revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan, who briefed Trump on the dossier’s findings and later became a vocal Trump critic.
In a series of morning tweets, Trump dared Brennan to sue him over the revocation and blasted special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of investigators as a “national disgrace.”
Trump is lashing out at a time when he is feeling intense pressure over the Russia probe.
His former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, is facing more than a dozen financial fraud charges brought by Mueller and a verdict could come at any moment. Longtime Trump fixer Michael Cohen is likely to be charged soon over alleged bank fraud, according to a New York Times report. And the Times revealed over the weekend White House counsel Don McGahn has been cooperative with Mueller than previously thought.”

Fusion GPS hired actually hired a former British spy by the name of Christopher Steele to compile the fake dossier about Donald Trump during the campaign and Ohr was forced to take a demotion in late 2017 after it was discovered that he had previous contact with Steele. Ohr’s wife, Nellie, worked for Fusion GPS during the time of the campaign.
President Trump has previously targeted Ohr as part of a broader strategy in order to retaliate against key players who are involved in the partisan Russian probe, which is currently looking into ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow’s alleged interference in the 2016 election.
Last week the president revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan.
Brennan was the operative who originally briefed the president on the dossier’s findings but later became a vocal Trump critic.
The president is stepping up his efforts of late in order to rid the nation of the swamp. And make no mistake about it, all these characters mentioned are neck deep in swamp water.
