Congress Won’t Defend America’s Borders, So President Trump Will Do it for Them

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – President Donald Trump’s job approval rating in the Rasmussen Survey – the most accurate poll throughout the 2016 campaign season – rose again on Wednesday, to 51%.  On the same date in his first term in office, Barack Obama’s approval rating stood at 46%.  The new poll result caused enraged fake reporters and social justice warriors’ heads to explode across the country.

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – The Trump economy continued to roar, with the ADP/Moody’s private sector survey of payrolls showing that 241,000 jobs were added in February, well above the expectation of 205,000.  The rapid creation of private sector jobs, along with the tax cuts taking effect in people’s paychecks, most likely has a lot to do with the President’s strong job approval.  Go figure.

Formerly amusing late-night comic Jimmy Kimmel used part of his monologue Wednesday night to mock First Lady Melania Trump’s accent, as he played a tape of her reading a book to children at the White House Easter Egg Roll.  No one could confirm whether or not the First Lady responded by calling him a simpleton in each and every one of the five languages that she speaks fluently, but she should have.

As the caravan of Honduran “refugees” began to dissolve south of Mexico City on Wednesday, President Trump signed an executive order sending national guard troops to patrol the Southern border, saying the action is necessary since congress refuses to act to change the country’s idiotic open borders immigration rules.

Following the signing, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told reporters that her department would be working with state officials in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California to activate and deploy the guard personnel and equipment that will be assigned to the border.  That was all expected.

What came next, though, was somewhat surprising to the fake journalists at the presser.  In response to a question about the President’s recent comments that he might use the military budget to fund the building of his long-promised border wall, Sec. Nielsen said:

“What [Trump] meant is there are some lands that the Defense Department owns right on the border where we see illicit activity,” Nielsen said during a White House press briefing. “We’re looking into options for the military to build wall or military installations on the border.”

And so it begins.  Isn’t it ironic that Pueblas sin Fronteras, the radical open borders group that organized the caravan of Hondurans, has in fact provided Mr. Trump the justifying event for deploying the National Guard to the border – thus providing the enhanced border security congress refuses to fund – and which in turn is going to provide the pretext for using part of the beefed-up military budget for constructing at least part of a border wall?  Because that’s exactly what has taken place here since the President first began tweeting about the caravan on Saturday.

If you still buy into the fake news media/Democrat narrative that the President just belches random stuff out onto his Twitter feed while eating ice cream in bed with no plan in mind, well, there’s really not much anyone can do for you, is there?

By the way, if you’re thinking this is all Mr. Trump is going to do related to taking executive action to enhance border security, you might want to hold that thought.  One of the aspects of illegal immigration policy that the President has complained about in recent days is the so-called “catch and release” policy.

Under this policy – which we can lay at the feet of George W. Bush and Karl Rove, who began it – illegal immigrants who are caught coming across the southern border are briefly held while their personal information is recorded by border officials, and then just released on their own recognizance while awaiting a hearing before an immigration judge.  Obviously, the vast majority of these folks simply vanish into the interior of the country and never show up for said hearing.

This policy is not a part of immigration law.  It was created via an executive order by former President Bush, and happily continued throughout the Obama years.  While Mr. Trump has repeatedly criticized the policy, he has not taken action to rescind the Bush order, or to formally issue guidance to border officials to halt its enforcement.

It isn’t being reported anywhere in the fake news media right now, but there are two main reasons why Mr. Trump has kept this policy in place:

  • Absent the creation of more immigration judges, the illegals currently being released into the general population will have to be held, probably for months, in detention centers, and congress has failed to provide additional funding for the creation of more such judges; and
  • While the Obama Administration did for a time hold hundreds of illegal immigrants in such detention centers along the border – centers that still exist – the media studiously ignored reporting on them.  In a Trump Administration, we can bet the fake news media would focus on such centers every day in an effort to portray them as modern-day concentration camps.

To this point, the President has no doubt been convinced by his advisors not to take any action on “catch and release” for these reasons.  But it is obvious that Mr. Trump is now fed up with the current status quo, and is going to act on his own to enhance the nation’s border security in pretty much any way he can.

You should expect Mr. Trump to formally rescind the Bush order in the coming days, and then prepare yourselves for all the “concentration camp” stories that will become ubiquitous on CNN and the broadcast networks in the following weeks and months.  Because that is what the fake news media does.

Just another day in no more open borders America.

That is all.

The SJWs Had A Really Bad Weekend

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Hey, remember when campus Social Justice Warriors, the Texas news media and the management at UT-Austin claimed that the implementation of Texas’s new “Campus Carry” law would be a disaster and lead to all sorts of death, violence, and just general mayhem?  Yeah, predictably, that didn’t happen.  UT reported yesterday that, in the year since the law went into effect, its’ campus police have had to investigate just 4 gun-related incidents on campus (Oklahoma’s football team alone averages more than that per semester), and just 1 of those incidents could even theoretically be somehow tied to the new law.  That single incident came when a grad student, posing for a photo for the campus newspaper The Daily Texan, lifted his shirt to reveal the pistol he was legally carrying.  Because the gun was no longer “concealed” when he briefly lifted his shirt, some campus snowflake called the campus cops and fled to his safe space.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
  • Social Justice Warriors have also tossed a fit in recent days due to the fact that the movie “Dunkirk” – which apparently does a great job of portraying the famous WWII Battle of Dunkirk – doesn’t have enough women and people of color in its cast.  Another legacy of our nation’s refusal to teach recent generations anything about history – someone needs to inform these simpletons that almost everyone who fought and died at Dunkirk was – gasp! – a white male.  The same is true of most – but not all – of the famous battles of WWII fought by British and U.S. forces.  Can someone please put these SJW nitwits in a remedial history program?
  • After 9 illegal immigrants tragically died from heat exposure in the back of a large truck in San Antonio over the weekend, liberals and their fake news media agents speculated that this just had to have happened because of President Trump’s new policy of actually enforcing immigration laws.  The trouble with this argument is that, during the George W. Bush era of open borders in 2003, 19 illegal immigrants suffered the exact same fate in the back of another large truck in Victoria, Texas.  Folks, the ranches of deep south Texas are littered with the bodies of illegal immigrants who have died from overexposure to heat, starvation, lack of water and from being shot by the “coyotes” who smuggle them into the country.  Perhaps the real problem here is the thoughtless scofflaw policies followed by craven liberal leaders of the nation’s “sanctuary cities”, which serve as beacons of false hope for those who wish to enter the country illegally.  But hey, that thought process is logical, and thus could never be followed by anyone on the American left or in our fake national news media.
  • With Republicans like Richard Burr, who needs Democrats? – North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr, who tragically chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, said the following to CNN when questioned about the refusal of Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice to testify:  “The unmasking thing was all created by Devin Nunes, and I’ll wait to go through our full evaluation to see if there was anything improper that happened.  But clearly there were individuals unmasked. Some of that became public which it’s not supposed to, and our business is to understand that, and explain it.”  Honestly, why even bother to try fix our government anymore, if this is the attitude of the supposed “good guys”?  A pox on all their houses.
  • With Democrats like this, who needs fascists? – NY City’s “man of the people,” i.e., commie/Democrat Mayor Bill DeBlasio reportedly had a subway train cleared of the homeless people who normally occupy it so that he could take a photo-op ride on it and declare that it and the train station it was rolling into “looks clean.”  Aren’t these Democrats just wonderful people?
  • Finally, some drug dealer in South Florida named David Blackmon became so distraught after his huge stash of cocaine was stolen from his car – along with $50 in cash – that he did the only logical thing anyone named David Blackmon would do:  He phoned 911, and was promptly tossed in the slammer.  I swear it’s not me, although he is a handsome devil.

Just another day in Unfortunate Namesakes America.

That is all.
