President Trump is Laying the Groundwork for Executive Action on the Border Situation

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There is just no good reason why any average citizen needs to own g…er…knives? – The murder rate in London surpassed that of New York City for the first time ever in February, as Islamic-driven knife killings continue to grow in the gun-banning metropolis.  As of this writing, no one at CNN had asked David Hogg for his views on London’s pressing need to ban knives.  But it seems to be just a matter of time.

Speaking of the ever-more annoying Mr. Hogg, he’s gonna have some ‘splainin’ to do with his CNN masters next time he goes in for an interview.  That’s because on Sunday he made the mistake of posing for a photo with Javier Manjarres, a Republican congressional candidate who is challenging Democrat incumbent Ted Deutch.

As if the sin of paling around with a – gasp! – Republican wasn’t damning enough in the eyes of everyone at the fakest of all fake news outlets, Hogg’s error was made even more unforgivable by the fact that Manjarres was wearing a t-shirt that depicts President Donald Trump urinating on the CNN logo (see below).  Oh, my, CNN might have to go find itself another gun-banning teenager to exploit.

Headlines we never saw during the Obama years… – The Wall Street Journal reports that the big economic issue facing Iowa and much of the rest of the American midwest is that there are too many jobs and not enough workers to fill them.

According to the Journal:

“It is a problem playing out in many parts of the Midwest, a region with lower unemployment and higher job-opening rates than the rest of the country. Employers, especially in more rural areas, are finding that there are just too few workers. That upends a long-running view in Washington, D.C., and many state capitals, where policy makers often say the unemployed simply lack the skills to get hired.”

Should the pace of economic growth and job creation experienced in the 14 months of the Trump Administration continue for another 14 months, this midwest-based “problem” will inevitably spread to other parts of the country.  This is an almost inevitable outcome as the overall economy approaches full employment.

Of course, there will be exceptions to the rule, isolated pockets of the country where chronic unemployment levels will persist and people will remain addicted to the public dole.  Those pockets of economic under-performance are easy to predict:  They go by names like Chicago, Washington, DC, Baltimore, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, Philadelphia and other big cities that have been governed by Democrats for decades.  It’s the way Democrat politicians like it to be.

DACA is dead, and NAFTA could be next, if Mexican officials don’t act to halt the caravan of more than 1200 Central American nationals that has been making its way through their country unimpeded over the last few days.  At least, that’s what President Trump said on his Twitter feed yesterday and early this morning, and as we have seen so many times in the past, the President doesn’t just toss stuff like this out there for no good reason.

The tweet storm began on Sunday morning, with these two Presidential messages:

“Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!”

and..

“Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S. They laugh at our dumb immigration laws. They must stop the big drug and people flows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA. NEED WALL!”

Mr. Trump expanded on this theme with three more tweets this morning, concluding with:

“DACA is dead because the Democrats didn’t care or act, and now everyone wants to get onto the DACA bandwagon… No longer works. Must build Wall and secure our borders with proper Border legislation. Democrats want No Borders, hence drugs and crime!”

So, after 7 months of publicly holding out hope that the cynical Democrats might want to make a deal in which DACA gets extended in exchange for wall funding and other immigration reforms, the President has finally figured out that the Dems never had any intention of making any such deal, preferring instead to keep the DACA kids in limbo so they can exploit the issue in the November midterm elections.  Ok, he knew that all along, but it’s good to see him abandoning all pretense, and calling things as they really are.

The problem the President has here is that there is literally no reason at all to expect the Senate Republicans to “go nuclear” or even lift a finger at all in an effort to change the immigration laws.  At least half of the GOP caucus in the senate favors chain migration and the insane “diversity lottery” system in their eagerness to attract campaign money from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Sadly, it is up to the President alone to stop the ongoing invasion coming across our southern border.  If the President wants to build his long-promised wall, he’ll have to find a way to get it done using his emergency powers and the defense budget, as we discussed last week.  Expecting Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell to do anything about it is just a waste of time and energy.

Given the President’s past use of his Twitter feed as a prelude to taking action, we should expect him to take some form of emergency executive action to address the border situation in the coming days.

Just another day in the southern invasion continues and congress doesn’t care America.

That is all.

    The President should immediately order our military to include various National Guard units to the Mexican border. He needs to militarily seal the frontier and close down all border crossings and then announce everything will remain locked down until America once again feels secure in the control of its own territory. Then when he has everyone’s attention and we are in control of our own border, we can have the definitive discussion as a nation

    The President needs only to declare a national emergency demanding Congress remain in session. He should lock them down as well, surrounding both the House and the Senate with troops, and then bring in the cots. No one is going anywhere. Then he could speak to the nation, telling them he is quite prepared to impose martial law, should it become necessary.

    The President has every right to insist Congress stay sequestered until they actually do their job. Start speaking to the nation earnestly about the crisis we face from crime cartels, terrorists and economic refugees. If any elected representatives aren’t at their desks, on the floor of Congress when sequester is imposed, have them tracked down and brought back by force of arm, if necessary. Take the bull by the horns Mr. President and you will win. It is only by allowing the status quo to continue that you will lose the confidence of the public as well as the loyal support of your base.

    The mid term elections are fast approaching. I further suggest you send federal law enforcement officials to California to arrest any and all elected and appointed officials who refuse to cooperate with, or honor federal law and, or have acted to obstruct justice to include the Governor, his Attorney General and this Mayor of Oakland.

    Anyone who isn’t prepared to hold office without violating federal law, refusing to cooperate with federal law enforcement officials both in spirit and fact need to be immediately removed from any official capacity and brought up on federal charges. Hold them all incarcerated and without bail in an out of state, federal facility. Have them charged according to commonly understood and established legal definitions of treason and sedition. Be prepared to impose martial law upon the entire state of California, if necessary. That would be an added political opportunity to expose the full extent of the insurrection, tyranny and corruption.

    Further announce your intention and future policy of cutting off all federal funding for any cities, counties and, or states, which are deemed to be out of compliance with any federal law, or directives. And further inform the nation of your intention to ignore any and all lower court rulings until the Supreme Court has the opportunity to make a final determination on every single issue and aspect regarding the supremacy of federal law.

    In the shorter term, make clear your intention to see that law and order remains seamlessly in force through out the nation. Civil order will remain of utmost importance until all such matters are definitively adjudicated in the nation’s highest court. Let it be known, you are willing to do whatever it will take to get a timely response from the Supreme Court in a time of national emergency. America demands legal resolution and on each and every one of these issues and you will not allow it to be held ransom to corrupt and provincial political considerations such as partisan, pork rolling projects and the special, business interests of global multi national corporations.

    Enough is enough. Everyone realizes these schizophrenic episodes of the left have gone too far. One side, or the other must take charge at least until the next national election. The country must control the very ground it rests upon, the mechanisms of governance and the territory it purports to rule, least and for all practical purposes, it simply ceases to exist and that’s by definition.

    Of course the argument can be made, that is precisely what both the left and the globalists want. But was that not why we elected you to be President and now, we find that question still remains to be answered. Why did you run to be President, if not to make America Great again?

    By all means let us sit down and continue to try to reason together. Let these discussions be guided by law, tradition and the good intentions of well meaning men, but failing to find consensus, let’s resolve to put these enemies of our democratic republic before us and, at the point of a bayonet should it become necessary. Alexander the Great cut the Gordian Knot. Either we exist as a nation, or we don’t. Either the constitution remains in effect and the law exists for all, fair, even handed and equal, or it is a tyranny of establishment privilege as we can all see today, plain and simple.

    Take charge Mr. President. Do it now and you will win. Our enemies continue to thwart and frustrate you and your Administration at every turn. They continue to gather, plot and fester in their insolent arrogance, seditious posture and entrenched positions. The danger is they will inevitably strengthen as your supporters, unfulfilled will be demoralized and eventually begin to trail off. The people are still with you Mr. President and while the people still support you, you cannot lose.

    Either you prevail Mr. President, or it will all have been for naught and it really won’t matter how it is dressed up for public consumption. Either we will have an America and you will have won, or we won’t, in which case you will have failed and we will have lost and America will be forever diminished and profound ways. Frankly sir, to those of us who support you, that is simply unacceptable.
