Trump calls for money for border wall by 2028, a week too late



President Trump's budget calls for funding for his border wall. Kudos, President Trump, mega-kudos to you!

The White House unveiled a budget proposal on Monday heavy on fulfilling President Donald Trump's campaign promises, pressing for new spending on infrastructure and a border wall.

But the document -- always a political exercise by Presidents that stands little chance of being adopted by Congress -- is especially immaterial this year, since lawmakers approved a two-year spending plan just last week.

Ooops! Maybe last week was the time to demand money for a border wall! Maybe last week, when the government had a must-pass bill to keep the government open, was the time when Trump had the most leverage to demand funding for his wall. Democrats, who had briefly shut down the government to demand amnesty for illegals, saw that tactic backfire on them and were afraid to do so again. Imagine if Trump had noticed their reticence and used the opportunity to demand border wall funding?

Unfortunately, this only happens in MAGA fan fiction, because Trump did not do so. Now that the Congress is getting down to the business of individual spending bills Democrats have no incentive to give Trump anything. They can get the departments they like funded while stiffing the Department of Homeland Security.

But it still isn't clear if Trump even wants a border wall, he's so far to the left on immigration in general. Listen to Mark Levin talking about the President's negotiating position on immigration. Democrats had asked for legalization of 700,000 illegals, and the President responded by offering citizenship for 1.8 million. (At the 28 minute mark)

Why would the President of the United States take 700,000 people, who have signed up for DACA, which is unconstitutional, which Obama did in violation of separation of powers... why would you take that and say "You know what, I'll negotiate against myself. Let's make it 1.8 million people, and not [merely] legalization, but citizenship." Oh wow, look how he positioned the Democrats! Excuse me? It's not about positioning the Democrats. It's about the rule of law. It's about doing the right thing.

Here's another tidbid: Trump is requesting funds to build a border wall... over 10 years.

About $1.6 billion in Trump's budget would add 65 miles of walls along the southern border with Mexico. That's part of Trump's request of $18 billion over 10 years to build additional walls and fences along the border.

When I see the President planning to take ten years to build a border wall, when I see him offering citizenship, not merely amnesty, to more illegals than Obama ever did, when he employs one of Obama's goons to run ICE, it seems to me that he just doesn't take border security very seriously.

Let's replace the words "Trump" with "Obama" in biased headlines


The liberal media, which bills itself as non-partisan, is running especially rabid now that President Trump has released his budget containing modest proposed cuts for certain agencies. Looking at the ferocity of the biased headlines, I wonder what the headlines would look like if Trump's name were replaced with Obama, as well as adjusting for circumstances.

Study: Immigration enforcement gives illegal aliens PTSD


Would it surprise you to learn that there is not just one or two but dozens of studies examining the psychological effects of enforcing the law against illegal aliens? Apparently, enforcing immigration law causes all kinds of effects on illegal aliens; it makes them anxious, depressed, and, according to one study, victims of post traumatic stress disorder.

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.

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". What makes Black Panther different from other Marvel films is that the protagonist, as well as most of the cast, are black, and Africa is portrayed as a super technologically advanced continent filled with spaceships. 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?
