PRESIDENT TRUMP, BUILD THE DAMN WALL!!!

1040

As I have said before, I am becoming increasingly frustrated with the president and his apparent unwillingness to do what we all know is required to get ‘The Wall’ built.  But having said that, one of the biggest problems he faces, if not the BIGGEST problem, is the fact that many people continue to believe our ‘fake news’ media, even after they get caught lying time and time again. It remains easy for them to brainwash the masses out there because so many of America remain accept what they’re told and are simply too lazy to verify in some way what it is that they’re being told.

The following 11 reasons should be forwarded over and over again to ALL Americans until they are read them so many times that they get sick of reading them.

  1. $11 Billion to $22 Billion is spent on welfare to illegal immigrants each year by state governments.
  2. $22 Billion dollars a year is spent on food Assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal immigrants.
  3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal immigrants.
  4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on Primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English!
  5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for Education for the American-born Children of illegal immigrants, known as ‘Anchor Babies.’
  6. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal immigrants.
  7. 30 percent of all Federal Prison Inmates are illegal immigrants.
  8. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on Illegal immigrants for Welfare & Social Services by the American taxpayers.
  9. $200 Billion dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal immigrants.
  10. In 2006, illegal immigrants sent home $45 BILLION in remittances to their Countries of origin.
  11. The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One million sex crimes committed By Illegal Immigrants in the United States.

The TOTAL COST is $338.3 Billion a year. Since there are approximately 135 million taxpayer in the United States, OVER $2,500 of your taxes go to funding those who are in this country illegally. These illegal then support the Democrat Party because it’s the Democrats who seem hell bent on making it far easier for them to come here, and if already here, to stay here.  So how stupid must we be to allow this sort of thing to continue, knowing that if the Democrats are successful we will be accomplices in allowing them to set this country on a path that there will be no recovery from.

It’s also important that we understand that we are not fighting the Democrat Party of the past, what we are fighting are those who are nothing less than modern-day Fascists. But make no mistake, it’s not just in the Democrat Party where todays’ Fascists can be found. Many, too, can be found in the Republican Party. Paul Ryan proved that during his tenure in Congress, and even more so as Speaker of the House. He gave Barry ‘O’ almost anything he wanted and would not speak out against him. Republicans seem only to have the courage to attack their own president. Nuts, right?

The time has now come for the president to employ a much more aggressive approach in using the bully pulpit to reign in the RINOs.  He must pull no punches, and threaten if necessary, that their continuing willingness to assist the Democrats will no longer be tolerated.  He must remind them, since that now appears to be necessary, that they were sent to Congress to do the PEOPLE’S business, not that of their donors.  And if they are unable to do that then he will do all within his power to ensure they lose that which they seem to crave the most.  Their highly coveted position of power.

And while I am not at all pleased with the president, at the moment, the truth is that things could be very much worse. The election could have gone to Hitlery right? And now, what happens over the course of the next three weeks will determine if President Trump will be re-elected. And make no mistake, that’s the true objective here, to make it that much easier for him to be defeated by whichever Democrat it turns out to be in 2020.  It has nothing whatsoever to do with illegal immigration, or ‘The Wall.’  And if ‘I’ can figure that out why is it the president seems unable to?

The president needs to build the wall, no more stalling. If he breaks ground in three weeks we’re fine.  But, his speech Friday was full of all the Pelosi talking points. “Walls are medieval”, “we can just use drones”, “we never proposed building an actual wall”.  Yes he said all that, go back and listen. For some reason nobody heard his speech.  I know what I heard on the campaign trail.  And I also KNOW what it was than convinced me to finally climb onboard the ‘Trump Train.’ I think it fair to say that the moment of truth has now officially arrived when it comes to ‘The Wall.’

MR. TRUMP, BUILD ‘THE WALL!!!’

It’s oh so simple and yet many Republican politicians still don’t get it.  Promising to build the wall on our southern border is why Republicans won and failing to make good on that promise is why they lost, and will continue to lose.  That said, support for building a wall on our southern border has now at its highest level on record, so says a Quinnipiac University released on Tuesday.  In reporting the results of its latest poll it said, “This is the highest level of support for the wall since the independent Quinnipiac University National Poll first asked the question in November 2016.”

Forty-three percent of voters now support building the border wall, while 54% oppose it, that according to the national survey of 1,147 voters, conducted Dec. 12-17, 2018.  The record 43% support represents a five-point jump from its August 15, 2018 level of 38% and is up seven points from its year-ago level of 36% (Dec. 13, 2017). Back on April 20, 2017, only 33% of voters nationwide supported building a border wall.  By party affiliation, Republicans overwhelmingly support building the wall, Democrats overwhelmingly oppose it, and Independents are divided:

  • Republican Support: 86%
  • Democrat Opposition: 90%
  • Independents: 47% Support, 51% Oppose

And it was yet another poll, the Morning Consult poll, that revealed Republican voters view immigration reform and the building of a wall along America’s southern border as being two of their top issues.  This as Congress faces a December 21 deadline to partially fund the government.  President Trump has demanded $5 Billion in border wall funding; however, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders suggested on Tuesday that they might accept something less than $5 Billion and would then look for what she described as an ‘alternative’ means of funding the border wall.

Forty-eight percent of Republican voters said that immigration is a “top priority” for Congress, 48 percent said reducing the deficit is a top issue, and 43 percent of Republican voters said building a wall was among the highest for Congress, and 43 percent of Republican voters ranked healthcare reform as a top priority.  Entitlement reform and infrastructure spending ranked 37 percent and 35 percent, respectively, for Republican voters.  They ranked the investigation into alleged collusion between President Trump and the Russian government as their lowest priority at 11 percent.

Republicans also listed finance reform, gun control, and amnesty for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) illegal aliens, otherwise known as “Dreamers,” amongst their lowest priorities for Congress.  All of which, along with the impeachment of President Trump, just happens to be all of the items that are right up there at the very top of the Democrats ‘To Do’ list.  By handing to the Democrats control of the House in the last election, demonstrates, I think, a willingness by the American voter to bite their collective nose to spite their face.

Look, I can see why many folks may seem ready to give up on the president over this border wall issue, trust me when I say I’m none too pleased myself.  But the Democrats, and many RINOs, DO NOT want this border wall to be either funded nor built because they see it as a way of fracturing the president’s base and therefore his support.  So while we may be frustrated with the lack of progress, perhaps we should be a bit more focused in our determining at whom that frustration should be aimed.  As I have said before President Trump has delivered on much of what he promised.

We all knew ‘The Wall’ was going to be a difficult fight.  Perhaps if President Trump were to call for a national televised address during which he could show the American people the chaos taking place at our southern border.  And he could show why that concrete bollard wall works to help agents control the border and how stupid loopholes in the asylum laws are luring this growing number of immigrants, who get sent home anyway after tremendous expense and trouble. This is a national emergency.  If the wall goes unbuilt, Trump likely will not get reelected.

He might also want to take the opportunity to explain some basic facts.  Such as how Mexico is in a state of disintegration due to drug money and corruption, how 27,000 Mexicans were murdered last year, how over 70,000 Americans have died due to opioid overdoes, the cost of medical care, incarceration, border protection and related police costs inside the U.S. and welfare costs easily exceed 25 Billion a year.  Any American or politician or foreign citizen critical of the effort to build the wall and serious rework of our immigration laws is, in short, contributing to death.

Our Republican lead Congress has had two full years to get it done only to fail, and rather spectacularly so.  And so thanks to their inability, and/or unwillingness, to make good on the promise made to the American people, and because they chose to punt on this issue, we will now have a House controlled by the Democrats and whose Speaker will now be someone who is nothing more than a rabid leftwing political ideologue whose primary purpose in life will be to construct the necessary evidence to bring about the impeachment of our current, and duly elected, president.

And just like how we had Republicans, for several years, talking about doing away with Obamacare, until we had a Republican in the White House who could have made that a reality, we have long had Democrats talking about border security until we had that same Republican in the White House who could make it happen.  But it’s ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’ on both sides that has become the chief impediment to achieving both.  Neither the ‘Never Trumpers’ nor the Democrats seem willing to allow President Trump the ability to claim any level of accomplishment.

DEMOCRATS GRASPING AT STRAWS IN THEIR EFFORT TO STOP ‘THE WALL’…

It would seem to me that those on ‘The Left’ are determined to leave no stone unturned in their continuing effort to pull out everything in their arsenal when it comes to attempting to derail President Trump’s plans to construct a border wall and therefore better ensure the safety of ALL American citizens. The latest “obstacle” is a new lawsuit presented by far-left Congressman Raul Grijalva of Arizona and the Center for Biological Diversity, the purpose of which would be to delay construction of ‘The Wall’ until there can be a review completed of its ‘biological’ impact.  They claim that birds and “numerous endangered species will be adversely impacted” by ‘The Wall’.  First of all, am I like the only one who has never heard of this group, the ‘Center for Biological Diversity’?

Anyway, this lawsuit that has now been filed demands that construction of Trump’s border wall must suspended pending an environmental impact study.  And, sadly, I have no doubt that there will be found some sympathetic leftwing-kook-of-a-judge who, just like those who have stymied Trump efforts regarding the limiting of refugees from Moslem countries, will go along with allowing it to proceed.  And then it was on MSNBC, that the host of ‘MSNBC Live’, Craig Melvin, chose to dedicate an entire segment of his nonsensical little ‘fake news’ program to advance the cause, and, in an effort to assist him in proving his ideological point, brought on Animal Planet’s Jeff Corwin to discuss the issue, which, of course, Corwin went on to characterize as being an “unprecedented catastrophe.”

It was in talking about ‘The Wall’ that Corwin said, ‘It’s poised to cut through more than 1200 miles of habitat along the border between the United States and Mexico. There are over 90 threatened and critically endangered species that are in the crosshairs because of this wall. And we’ve got over 100 migratory birds that will be impacted from this wall.  The endangered Mexican gray wolf – only 133 individuals left of this iconic carnivore, this amazing canine. Its head is on the chopping block and likely can fall to extinction.”  Clearly this is nothing more than yet another stalling tactic engineered by those on the Left and there would seem to be an unlimited supply of useful idiots – I mean, environmentalists – willing to assist in trying to advance this patently idiotic cause and in whatever way they can.

Corwin would go on to say, “The expanse of the jaguar, just now being restored into its habitat in Arizona, will likely be extirpated, pushed back towards the precipice of extinction, because of this disastrous wall.”  Unfortunately Melvin didn’t bother to ask Corwin the questions that I’m sure that at least some in his audience would have liked to have heard asked, such as why not being able to commute into Arizona so “extirpates” the population of jaguars and Mexican gray wolves.  Modern environmentalists have now become the perfect example of that old Lenin quote, “The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.”  Yes, it would seem that insanity runs deep there on the left and there never seems to be shortage of those willing to prove just how impressively braindead they truly are.

Melvin chose to tiptoe around the obvious question about birds saying, “At the risk of sounding ignorant or foolish, the birds specifically.  Wouldn’t they just be able to fly over the wall?  To which Corwin responded, “Excellent question.”  And he went on to say, “Certainly, many animals that fly can migrate over that wall. But many animals stay very low. For example, birds and bats are actually passing close to the ground surface because they’re heading toward plants for pollination, for seeds that they eat, or fruits. For example, Craig, you may not even know this, but 50 percent of the plants in the Sonoran desert, those cactus, 50 percent of them, have their seeds dispersed, or their flowers pollinated by bats, and bats use echo-location to navigate, and clearly a wall would be a terrible obstacle for them.”

That makes bats sound so impaired it’s a miracle they aren’t already extinct. The Arizona State University School of Life Sciences explains: “Using echolocation, bats can detect objects as thin as a human hair in complete darkness. Echolocation allows bats to find insects the size of mosquitoes, which many bats like to eat.”  Look, Corwin has helped cable-news networks hype green threats before.  In 2007, Corwin was sponsored by CNN to be an environment correspondent for an Anderson Cooper 360 special called Planet in Peril.  In 2009 Corwin also hosted a television special for MSNBC with the same title of his book Future Earth: 100 Heartbeats.  Also in 2009, Corwin partnered with the activist group Defenders of Wildlife to host the documentary series Feeling the Heat with Jeff Corwin.

And please excuse my confusion, since I am not a Democrat, but how it is that at first Democrats were saying that it would only take a 12 foot ladder to defeat an 11 foot wall and now, all of a sudden, it’s that very same wall that is said to be too tall for a bird to fly over?  And perhaps Corwin should use google if he wants to know the truth about gray wolves:  “Today, gray wolves have populations in Alaska, northern Michigan, northern Wisconsin, western Montana, northern Idaho, northeast Oregon and the Yellowstone area of Wyoming. Mexican wolves, a subspecies of the gray wolf, were reintroduced to protected parkland in eastern Arizona and southwest New Mexico. The historic range of the gray wolf covered over two-thirds of the United States.”  So I’m not sure what his point may be.

And I’ll close with a question or two to Mr. Corwin.  That being, why can’t the Mexican gray wolf just have sex in Mexico and reproduce there and hence prolong the species?  Or are they longing to come to America so they can have their pups here in the good ol’ U.S. of A. so that they can then be able to take advantage of programs that would make their lives so much easier?  And also, what is it, exactly, that birds need to fly here to eat that is not, for whatever reason, available to them south of the border?  But then I suppose that we should tread lightly here or the next thing we know, the still heavily Democrat EPA will declare the entire southern border to be a wetlands area (which, with the exception of the Rio Grande, is dry), on which there can be no development, lest it threaten some bug, reptile or fish.
