Pentagon Spokesman: Military Reviewing Options For Border Wall Construction

The Department of Defense is reviewing options for border wall construction along the US-Mexico border, as they prepare an eventual game-plan should President Donald Trump declare a “national emergency” for the region.

“The Department of Defense is reviewing available authorities and funding mechanisms to identify options to enable border barrier construction,” said Navy Capt. Bill Speaks, a Pentagon spokesman.   “As there has not been such a declaration made, it would be inappropriate to comment further on those efforts.”

President Trump landed in Texas Thursday to meet with local officials and federal agents with first-hand knowledge of the escalating crisis along the US-Mexico border.

Trump’s declaration of an emergency at the southern border would allow the Army Corps of Engineers to design barriers and allow contractors to build them. Lt. Gen. Todd Semonite, who commands the corps, accompanied Trump on his trip Thursday to tour the border in Texas.

Trump signaled on Thursday that since his negotiation attempts with Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) are falling apart, the declaration of a national emergency could happen at any time.

The president has tried numerous times to work out a deal with the Democrats, even staying at the White House during the Christmas holidays while Pelosi went on vacation to a luxury resort in Hawaii during the partial government shutdown.  Democrats will not budge for political reasons.  Both Pelosi and Schumer have supported border security, including a barrier wall, as recently as less than one year ago, but now they believe not building a wall will harm Trump in his 2020 bid for re-election, being that a border wall was his signature campaign promise.  Leave it to Democrats to politicize our national security.  For those reasons, the president feels he may have to act on his own by declaring a national emergency.  Every one of the last four of six presidents have declared national emergencies for problems less than the death and destruction we face today by open borders, yet the Democrats will go judge-shopping and find an activist liberal on the bench who will rule that though all past presidents have had the authority to declare a national emergency, Donald Trump may not.  Just wait for it, because you know it’s coming.

“If this doesn’t work out, probably I will do it – I would almost say definitely,” Trump said. “We have plenty of funds if there’s a national emergency.”

The Democrat talking point recently has been that there is no national emergency and that the border situation is a “manufactured crisis,” manufactured by the president.  However, the numbers are saying that we lose 300 Americans each week to drug overdoses, and that 90 percent of the drugs are coming up through the southern border, and that between 2017 and 2018 there have been over 100,000 assaults on American citizens by illegal aliens, over 30,000 sexual assaults, and over 4,000 homicides, all committed by illegals who shouldn’t be here in the first place.  These kinds of numbers are the reason most Americans are siding with Trump and don’t believe it to be a manufactured crisis.

Trump: ‘If I Had One Do-Over, It Would Be…’

In an interview that aired on Sunday, President Donald Trump admitted that his biggest regret was appointing Jeff Sessions as his attorney general, and said that if he had a do-over, the nomination would have gone to someone else.

In an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Trump made the comments about his former attorney general who resigned right after the midterms back in November after a plethora of criticism from the president via social media.  It was at the height of the Mueller investigation, and Trump was openly critical of Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the probe in early 2017.

In the past, Trump said, “I don’t have an attorney general. It is very sad.”  The president’s disillusion in Sessions wasn’t just about the Russia collusion witch hunt.  He said he wasn’t happy with “the border” and “numerous” other issues that Sessions’ office affected.

“Every President deserves an Attorney General they have confidence in,” Trump tweeted. “I believe every President has a right to their Cabinet, these are not lifetime appointments. You serve at the pleasure of the President.”

Sessions recused himself the day after he was confirmed and sworn in as attorney general, but he never confided to the president that he was going to do so.  The only reason he recused himself was because during his confirmation hearing the Democrats made such a stink about Sessions being a surrogate to the Trump campaign during the 2016 election that they felt he couldn’t be neutral overseeing the FBI investigation into Russian collusion.  Remember, this was before the Mueller witch hunt began.

As time went on, America discovered that the whole Trump-Russia collusion probe was a hoax that served two purposes; a tool for Democrats to use to impeach Trump, and to cover up the Obama administration’s interference in the 2016 election by spying on the Trump campaign and by exonerating Hillary Clinton of the many crimes she committed while serving as Obama’s secretary of state, so that she could go on to win the election.

MN Star-Tribune FINALLY Reports on Ilhan Omar Being Married to Two Men at Once

This story has been out there for a year, but now The Minnesota Star-Tribune is finally reporting on the fact that Ilhan Omar could have been married to two men at once, and that one of the men might have been her own brother. I guess there was only so long they could sit on the story, since it didn’t go away, but in fact became more noticeable since she filed a joint return with a man she may not have been married to in 2014 and 2015. At that time she was still married to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, her alleged brother.

From The Gateway Pundit

On Saturday, after several months of this story being reported online, the Minnesota Star-Tribune finally reported that Ilhan Omar was married to two men at once and “possible her own brother.”

New investigative documents released by a state agency have given fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws.

Omar has denied the allegations in the past, dismissing them as “baseless rumors” first raised in an online Somali politics forum and championed by conservative bloggers during her 2016 campaign for the Minnesota House. But she said little then or since about Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, the former husband who swept into her life in 2009 before a 2011 separation.

The questions surfaced again this month in a state probe of campaign finance violations showing that Omar filed federal taxes in 2014 and 2015 with her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, while she was still legally married to but separated from Elmi.

Supreme Court To Hand Down Ruling On The Citizenship Question On The Census

The U.S. Supreme Court is close to handing down its ruling on whether the Trump administration can include a citizenship question on the 2020 census.  The question of citizenship has been on the census in the past, but the same question today is a political powder keg because of how leftists view illegal aliens living here as “Unregistered Democrats.”  Many are against it because Donald Trump is the one proposing it.  Trump Derangement Syndrome is very strong among those who go against a president’s Constitutional authority simply because it’s Donald Trump.

There have been many legal challenges since the question was announced in early 2018.

People against the citizenship question have cited studies (there’s always a study) that say the question may lead to an inaccurate population count.  I think they really fear the exact opposite.  Leftists have been telling us since the 1980’s that there are 11 million illegal aliens living in the country.  If we know that hundreds of thousands enter the country illegaly every year, with an outlook of one million coming in this year alone, it stands to reason that the number of illegals living in the country is much higher, and leftists don’t want the real number to be exposed.

Another reason leftists don’t want the question added to the census is because the population count is the data that the federal government uses to determine congressional districts, and the number of people living in certain areas determines how much federal funding states get.  This one is particularly despicable.  Leftists want to count lawbreakers who are here illegally as citizens in order to bump up the amount of federal funding for states, creating an artificial need for higher dollar amounts for grants and funding for programs, etc. which is supposed to go toward American citizens.  Illegals should get no federal funding whatsoever, but that money, and the potential for future Democrat Party registrations, is where we are in this debate.

I don’t think anyone can name any other country that you can enter illegally, take social benefits at the cost of its citizens, not register for the draft, get a driver’s license, and then get counted in a government census as a citizen.  The very fact that groups of people are arguing against the citizenship question is a dire warning that something has gone very wrong with a segment of our society.  Can someone please let Satan know that there’s a hole in his fence?

The administration has been adamant in its insistence that including the question is necessary to enforce the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

Leftists, who will go to any length to win any cause, are now spitting and jumping up and down over a potential political motivation behind adding the citizenship question.  Of course it’s bullschtein, but when has using bullschtein ever stopped Democrats in the past?  It’s practically in their platform.

From The Hill:

Critics say that records found on the hard drive of late GOP strategist Thomas Hofeller, who earned a reputation for helping Republicans in the redrawing of several key district maps in recent years, show he was involved in the creation of the citizenship question.

Emails between Hofeller, who died last year, and Mark Neuman, a top census adviser to Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, have been filed in New York federal court as evidence that the question is designed to benefit Republicans.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has filed the court documents, has pointed to a 2015 study conducted by Hofeller that found a citizenship question would help Republicans in redistricting while harming Hispanic communities.

In Maryland, another lawsuit on the census question revealed court documents showing Hofeller and Census Bureau staffer Christa Jones corresponded in 2015 about the question.  It’s interesting how now many leftists are throwing Barack Obama under the bus to get what they want, as if discarding an old tool that ran out of its usefulness.

Judge George Hazel, an Obama appointee (of course) who is overseeing the Maryland case, has opined that he will reconsider the question of discriminatory intent behind the citizenship question being proposed in light of the “new evidence.”

Oh Puhleeeeease!  The bottom line here is that nobody has said that illegal aliens won’t be counted.  They just won’t be counted as citizens — and there is no legal reason they should be.  They will be counted as illegal aliens, or “non-citizens”, “Future Democrats” or whatever less offensive term leftists accept.
