GOP/Dem Border Wall Deal Presented: SOME $$ For Wall, No Increase In Detention Space

Considering his other options, it’s going to be interesting to see if President Trump will sign off on the most recent package deal for border wall funding. The offer is just shy of 23% of the amount he originally pitched (22.8%, if you like working the math).

This from Breitbart:

A Republican-Democrat border security deal that is expected to be offered to President Trump funds about $1.3 billion for a United States-Mexico border wall and includes no increase in detention space to control increasing illegal immigration at the border.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill have announced that they have reached a deal on border wall funding to avoid a government shutdown. The deal, according to details by the Washington Post, includes about $1.3 billion in border wall funding — a fraction of the $5.7 billion that Trump had requested from Republicans and Democrats.

This funding is set to provide about 55 miles of new border wall along the roughly 2,000-mile long southern border. Much like the 2018 omnibus spending, which prevented Trump from building a border wall out of new materials, the deal is set to tack on stipulations as to what the barrier can be made from and where it can be placed.

Additionally, the deal keeps detention space for federal immigration officials to detain illegal aliens and border crossers at the same levels that have been funded over the last two years. The deal includes about 40,250 beds for immigration detention facilities, about 11,500 fewer beds than Trump had requested.

The conference committee was formed after Trump reopened the federal government following a shutdown without securing any funding for the border wall. Members of the committee include:

Alabama Republican Sen. Richard Shelby, West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, North Dakota Sen. John Hoeven, Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt, Texas Rep. Kay Granger, Tennesee Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, Georgia Rep. Tom Graves, and Mississippi Rep. Steven Palazzo, Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy, Illinois Sen. Richard Durbin, Montana Sen. Jon Tester, New York Rep. Nita Lowey, California Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard, North Carolina Rep. David Price, California Rep. Barbara Lee, Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar, and California Rep. Pete Aguilar.

The committee was formed to work on a funding package for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with a deadline of February 15, a funding route that experts have said the president never had to take.

Defense Department officials have reiterated that Trump does not need approval from Congress and, also, does not have to declare a national emergency to begin construction of the border wall. Instead, the president could have invoked 10 United States Code § 284, which authorizes the U.S. military to build barriers at the southern border, a Pentagon official has testified to Congress.

In the meantime, illegal immigration at the southern border is expected to reach levels that have not been seen since President George W. Bush. Researchers project, at current rates, there will be more than 600,000 illegal aliens apprehended at the border this year. In December 2018, there were about 51,000 border crossers apprehended.

If there is still room for negotiation, I’d expect him to present a counteroffer, but considering the February 15 deadline, he may accept it and take steps to acquire the wall funding from another pot.

I will say I hope he does something that won’t require another shutdown. Previous experience proved that to shut down the government was many times more expensive than it would have been to approve the original funding package and go on.

We talked about that in more depth in the article LIBERALS WILL NOT BE PLEASED WITH THE REAL REASON TRUMP OPENED GOV’T. A short quote from the article reads “Altogether, I estimate that the 35-day shutdown cost the American public somewhere around $40 billion. And that economic damage doesn’t include the unquantifiable damage being done to the 800,000 people who are going without a paycheck.”

Whatever the case, I think we can trust the president will make good on his promise to Build The Wall.

Easter Sunday’s Sri Lanka Bombings Condemned by Jewish Leaders

A few hours ago we posted a report of a deadly series of simultaneous bombings in Sri Lanka. At the time of that report, the estimated death toll was around 100, but the most recent update we have now says at least 207 are dead, with hundreds more wounded.

From Breitbart:

Arutz Sheva reports: Israeli and Jewish leaders condemned the series of deadly bombings which killed at least 207 people and wounded hundreds more in Sri Lanka Sunday morning.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, “In the name of the citizens of Israel, it expresses deep shock at the murderous attacks against innocent civilians in Sri Lanka, and Israel is ready to assist the authorities in Sri Lanka at this difficult time.”
President of the State Reuven Rivlin condemned the attacks and sent condolences to the families of those killed: “The attacks in Sri Lanka, including against those who were celebrating Easter, are a despicable crime. We are all children of G-d, an attack on one religion is an attack on all of us. Best wishes for the wounded.”

Source: Breitbart News

It’s so moving to hear Prime Minister Netanyahu’s support of the people left behind after this heinous act. There are many on the left, even in our Congress, that are openly anti-semitic and anti-Christian, yet Netanyahu recognizes, acknowledges, and supports the Christian community (much to the liberals’ chagrin, I’m sure).

The sounds of the mainstream media’s reports are being deafened by the noise of crickets, unlike when the mass shooting of Muslims took place in New Zealand. I’m sure they will conveniently remain silent since there won’t be any ammunition in this attack they can use to try to tear down President Trump. The rule of thumb that became the norm decades ago was “if it bleeds, it leads,” but now the only ones the liberal media want to see bleed are Trump supporters and Trump himself.

I remember when it was truly a day of mourning when events of this type were aired, but now the MSM outlets are much more selective. The way they treat crisis events of this type now, the only ones whose blood matters is that of innocent non-Christians. I would not be at all surprised to find that if their private conversations were made public, liberal haters of God would be applauding the deaths of every Christian on the planet.

Early Fake News Victim is the Subject of a New Clint Eastwood Movie

The term Fake News has become a daily flogging point against those in the mainstream media, from the White House press crew to the full gamut of TV, online, and print outlets. President Trump regularly trolls them with verbal backhands, and for a good reason; they’ve become the absolute masters of disinformation and left-leaning propaganda.

Clint Eastwood staunchly supports the president and has taken on a  new project, a movie based on a story called The Ballad Of Richard Jewell, who was a victim of a media smear campaign twenty-odd years ago from which he never recovered.

This from Breitbart:

Oscar-winning director Clint Eastwood is circling The Ballad of Richard Jewell as his next project, the tragic story about an early victim of our fake news media.

Jewell was a 34-year-old security guard at the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, and at first he was rightfully hailed as a hero after he discovered a backpack filled with explosives and risked his own life to evacuate the area. After the bomb went off, dozens were injured and one person was killed. There is no question, though, that many, many more would have died had Jewell not sounded the alarm.

Unfortunately for Jewell, the acclaim didn’t last long. He was overweight, white, and a southerner — the perfect target for our left-wing media… And so, three days later the media reported the F.B.I. was looking at him as a possible suspect. There was zero evidence against Jewell. The entire story was based on a criminal profile of the bomber.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution launched the hate campaign by comparing Jewell to the serial killer behind a horrible series of child murders in Atlanta.

Immediately, the rest of the unquestioning, totally irresponsible, and reckless media went to town on Jewell, portraying him as a pathetic mama’s boy, a fat guy who failed at law enforcement, a clown in a security guard uniform who planted the bomb to make himself a hero.

Source: Breitbart News

The article goes on to talk about many more details that I don’t have room for here, but the real bottom line here is that Jewell died young at the age of 42 and never recovered from the media assault on his character and his life.

That kind of abuse is what absolutely infuriates me about the way many of the far-left politicians and media personalities behave. It reminds me of the cliques that become a part of high school life. If you’re in the “in” crowd, nothing matters except adherence to the Group Think. If you dare express your individuality, woe is you, because they will slaughter you verbally, if not physically.

I know many people who have been deceived by the mantra of the Left, and while in many ways they may be friendly people, when it comes to some things (such as politics), they seem to totally lose their minds. It’s almost as if there’s a recorded message in there that certain things trigger, and their minds are made up, so don’t confuse them with the facts.

Richard Jewell was a victim of Fake News attacks long before it became a national buzzword. I believe Clint Eastwood’s movie will shed some light on how despicable and pervasive the problem has become in today’s political climate.

Donna Brazile Says Obama Admin ‘Did Everything They Could’, Defends Obama’s Actions Concerning Russian 2016 Election Meddling

We know from history that Donna Brazile is what I would call a hard-core Democrat. I suppose you could say she was hired to be a contributor at Fox News as somewhat of an “expert” on things Democrat (I won’t use the term “democratic,” because that term completely twists the meaning). In a recent segment, she defended the most radically-left president this country has ever seen, Barack Hussein Obama, against naysayers who are critical of his action, or rather the lack of action, concerning Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

This from Breitbart:

Longtime Democrat operative and newly minted Fox News contributor Donna Brazile defended former President Barack Obama and his administration over Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential election, saying she believes they did “everything they could.”

“I think they did everything they could without sounding all of the alarm bells,” Brazile said on Fox News’s The Daily Briefing.
“If Obama did more on Russian meddling, she said, critics would have accused him of trying to help his former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in her race against then-candidate Donald Trump,” Fox News reported.
“He was in a box,” Brazile said of the former president. 
“Perhaps President Trump is in a box,” she added, before calling for action to prevent future meddling. 
In the Fox report, Brazile claimed it was the Trump campaign that “exploited” information from WikiLeaks, which has suspected ties to Russia.
“Every day, the Trump campaign would get the WikiLeaks information; they would blast it,” Brazile said. “He used it in his daily rallies and daily meetings.”
“Brazile, who served as interim Democratic National Committee chair during the election, backed away from making any determination about whether her party should pursue impeaching the president,” Fox reported.

Source: Breitbart News

So now that the Mueller report has been wrapped up, the findings say clearly that neither President Trump nor anyone in his presidential campaign colluded with Russia. The report should have cleared him from any charges of obstruction of justice, but that didn’t happen. Of course, we know that the reason it was left open-ended is to set the Democrats up with something they call a “road map for impeachment.”

Senator Elizabeth Warren is still beating the impeachment drum as she continues to campaign for a shot at the Oval Office, but Brazile has stepped back from that position a bit. She may believe Trump should be removed from the White House, but she isn’t endorsing it nearly so vigorously right now.

She was quoted as saying“I think it’s premature to talk about what the next step is. Before we can move into what I call the impeachment gear, perhaps we should just dive into this report.”

Fox News reported, “Like Brazile, DNC Chair Tom Perez appeared to sidestep impeachment questions on Thursday and said it was unclear whether or not obstruction occurred.”

President Trump’s exoneration via the Mueller report is a stinging rebuke to all those of the far left who howled for over two years about him being unfit for the White House. They keep running the old playbook plan in which they accuse him of all the things of which they are most guilty. Obstructionism? Look no farther than the Democrat party. They would stand against an ice cream social if it came out that Trump suggested it.
