New budget allocates no money for border wall for two years



In addition to being a an enormously bloated deficit busting spending bill, the two year budget that President Trump signed allocates zero dollars for construction of a border wall for the next two years. So unless Mexico suddenly writes us a check, there will be not an inch constructed of a new border wall three full years into President Trump's term of office.

Some may say that it doesn't matter because Trump will get funding for a border wall when he makes a deal with Democrats on "Dreamers" (along with 1.1 million of their "lazy friends"). But Trump would have been in a much better position to demand border wall funding in the budget. The budget, after all, had to pass. The grand compromise concerning the "Dreamers" does not. There is a real chance that there will be no agreement with Democrats. In that case Trump will have no chance to seek out border wall funding until the next budget, in his last year in office (which really will be his last year in office if he does not build a wall).

That's why Trump should have threatened to veto (and vetoed if necessary) the budget until he got funding for a border wall. Enough Republicans in the House would have prevented an override of his veto and eventually he probably would have gotten the funding, or at least some of it.

Now Trump's only way to get funding for the border wall is to give Democrats enough to make them happy. What will that require? Probably, amnesty and citizenship for ten million or more illegal aliens. That's a mighty steep price to pay for a border wall. But because Trump didn't insist on funding the wall in the budget, he has no other options. He will have to agree to all the Democrats' demands, or get nothing. In any event it is far from certain that Democrats will ever agree to fund the wall under any circumstances.

When Trump last year ago signed a spending bill for his first in office that gave no money for the wall, Trump supporters said it was still early, still the first year of his administration. Now he has just signed another budget bill for two more years, again without a penny for his highest priority.

Either Trump is a terrible negotiator, or he is not really interested in having a border wall.

Remember when Ronald Reagan wanted to fund the freedom fighters in Nicaragua, but the Democratic House of Representatives didn't? Reagan didn't give up, he engaged in hard nosed negotiating tactics, and got what he wanted, from hard-left Democrats led by the neo-socialist Tip O'Neill. But Trump isn't even willing to go toe to toe with Congress when it's controlled by his own party. When will we get to see Trump actually fighting for something?

If Rand Paul were President, we wouldn't have this Democratic-inspired budget


Senator Rand Paul succeeded in briefly shutting down the government last night when he demanded a vote on restoring the budget spending caps before voting on the GOP deficit busting bill. By the time you read this, however, it is expected that a coalition of Democrats and RINO Republicans will have succeeded in passing a monstrosity of a budget bill which, although it will increase defense spending, will also increase domestic spending by hundreds of billions of dollars over the coming years, and is estimated to create a 1.2 trillion dollar deficit in 2019. That's $1,200,000,000,000 added to the debt in one year alone.

The budget agreement reached by the Republican House and Republican Senate would increase spending over 500 billion dollars over the next two years. It does not appear to cut a penny from domestic spending; in fact, along with military increases, it increases domestic spending by hundreds of billions of dollars.

Would "Black Panther" have a 100% Rotten Tomatoes score if it were "White Panther"?


The liberal media is going ga-ga over the upcoming superhero movie "Black Panther".

As of this writing the film has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. What are the odds of every single film reviewer agreeing on this film... or any film?
