Serious about the Border: President Trump says “I’m Not Playing Games”

President Donald Trump wants to shut down the U.S. border with Mexico? Let him. I’m serious. From the standpoint of safety of American citizens, national security, and any detrimental impact of the economic and financial costs to taxpayers, the President should close the entire 2,000-mile border from the Pacific coast to the Gulf of Mexico.
Look, Americans need to fully understand the gravity of our southern border is being breached and overrun at will, and there is a hard, factual crisis unfolding there, despite a temporary decline in illegal aliens captured at the border between 2006 and 2014 due to economic downturn. In fact we heard this past week that even some of the most hardcore anti-American Democrats and former Obama officials are hard-pressed to deny that this crisis actually exists, although it seems there isn’t any number of illegal aliens swarming across the border that is large enough to move them to act proactively to secure the border and ensure U.S. sovereignty, national security and the individual economic and physical safety and security of all Americans.
Now, with illegal alien entries occurring at their highest rate since 2007, adding to the 30-40 million illegals already here, yes that’s the real number, America has essentially lost effective control over the Mexican-U.S. border, and the current invasion of Illegal Aliens, coming in one massive caravan after another, is on track to potentially push 1.5 million illegal aliens into America this year alone, in part by way of a semantic deception that calls them “refugees”. That deception is part and parcel of the Democratic Party’s agenda and an implement the far-left’s strategic communications – propaganda campaign to soften justification for illegals entering the U.S…  That effort is ongoing and in opposition to a majority of Americans who want all illegals deported. Unfortunately, communist activist courts at the federal level, such as the 9th Circuit Court, have also made this next to impossible.
Between 2000 and 2006, there was a consistent flow of over one million Illegal Aliens into America, with one year hitting over 1.6 million. That was just the numbers that were detected and returned across the border. Americans must understand that similarly, large numbers are going undetected, which is almost impossible to determine and is based on statistical estimates by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the U.S. Border Patrol and ICE.
Most recently, reported by the DHS on March 6th, America can see that in February, 76,000 illegal aliens were caught at U.S. ports of entry (POE); the Border Patrol has caught 268,000 illegal aliens since the beginning of this fiscal year (October 2018), a 97% increase above last year’s numbers; apprehensions of what is termed “Family Units and Unaccompanied Alien Children,” have increased 338%; just last month, the Customs and Border Protection agents seized the largest illegal shipment of Fentanyl ever recorded — more than enough to literally kill 115 million Americans. With the detention facilities at 283% capacity, some illegal aliens were actually temporarily sheltered under a bridge in El Paso, Texas. In fact, it has recently also been revealed that 4,000 illegal aliens were caught trying to cross in just a single day, last week on March 26th, 2019.
Also be aware, last week, Obama’s former Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, stated: “I know that a thousand [a day] overwhelms the system. I cannot begin to imagine what 4,000 a day looks like, so we are truly in a crisis.”
Even acknowledged Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, Democrat (I-VT) and 2020 presidential candidate, “Big Red” himself, had to reluctantly acknowledge that a crisis exists, but he hedged his words with the usual anti-American tripe, as he suggested that somehow it was the U.S. border policies that were less than humane. Sanders, told CBS’ ‘Face the Nation’ there is a “terrible humanitarian crisis” at the southern border, going on to say, “We need to make sure that our borders are secure, but also we need a humane policy at the border.”
This past weekend, Mark Morgan, Obama’s Border Patrol chief, told Maria Bartiromo, host of Fox News’ Mornings With Maria, “It’s absolutely an emergency … ICE doesn’t have any more room. … [they] are having to release illegal aliens into … the United States … [and] because of our asylum laws, they step one foot on American soil, they are allowed in never to be heard from again.”
Further, according DHS Secretary Kirstjen Neilsen said that eighty percent of asylum seekers pass the first interview, although only 20 percent ever receive asylum. Neilsen further asserts the people refused asylum are “flat-out frauds” or they are here for economic reasons or to be united with family.
It’s also worth noting, in 2018, the federal government reviewed tens of thousands of mostly Chinese immigrants’ asylum statuses. The government was primarily focused on “asylum mills” and groups of lawyers who bragged about coaching migrants from years ago, so they could “fraudulently obtain asylum in Manhattan’s Chinatown and in Flushing, Queens.”
Unfortunately, these are the policies that allowed twice-deported illegal alien Jorge Rios to keep returning to America. Rios, an illegal alien from Honduras, was recently arrested on March 31st for the murder of a New Jersey nanny. Worse, particularly, if there’s blame to be placed, and there is — place it on Rios and the Democrats, to include, Speaker Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer who have continuously pushed the horrific nation-killing Open Borders agenda for political gain, and also the RINOs, to include former U.S. Representative Congressman Paul Ryan who kept diverting the President from the border emergency to keep the cheap labor pools flowing and growing, when the Republicans had the majority and who could have done something effective; in many respects.

It’s despicable how both parties have failed the nation on this issue. And it was deliberate and intentional…the work of the totally irresponsible Washington, DC Establishment!

Recently, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Neilsen implored Congress “to act ASAP to give DHS and its agencies the authorities we need to protect children from the terrible journey, discourage illegal immigration, and secure our border”. Secretary Neilsen added, “Failure to act is putting lives at risk — especially children who are exploited … and … ‘recycled’ by smugglers / bad guys (child/human traffickers) know our outdated laws and use children as a ‘free ticket’ into America…without a legal fix and additional resources, there will be no end to the crisis”.
Understand, fortunately, President Trump’s National Emergency declaration withstood Democrat and RINO attempts to override it, in the face of such an obvious emergency. And for those unfortunate Americans who struggle with their native English language, such in the manner of the Speaker and Senate Minority Leader, “emergency” is defined as “an unforeseen combination of circumstances, or the resulting state that calls for immediate action…an urgent need for assistance or relief.”
So on Friday, March 29th, President Trump noted that Mexico can stop illegal aliens from crossing our southern border if they choose to do so. The President angrily and sternly said: “If they, Mexico don’t stop illegal aliens, we’re closing the border. They’ll close it. And we’ll keep it closed for a long time. I’m not playing games.”
Likewise, that was followed by the President’s orders to halt financial aid to those countries that are not discouraging the hordes of illegal aliens, to include; El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. On Saturday, March 30th, the State Department acknowledged that it was moving to withhold approximately $700 million in aid to the three Northern Triangle Countries.
Virtually every single Democrat is mounting a hue and cry against cutting aid to these countries and closing the border, as they describe the economic damage it will do to the Northern Triangle Countries and Mexico, as well as our own. However, noting that these migrants were already facing “deplorable” conditions, Kellyanne Conway stated: “This is a classic case of what may happen … versus what’s right in front of us. We are over the melting point.” Hence, the Democrats and political-left, putting the soon shortage of Avocados coming into the U.S. as a greater crisis than American safety, security and sovereignty.
With that we are now facing the impact of several more caravans that are forming to send another 20,000 to 40,000 more illegal aliens to America, in the wake of the 8,000 member Honduran caravan that recently refused Mexico’s offer of asylum and jobs. Just like Europe’s Islamic and African illegal aliens flooding their countryside hoping to make it to Germany or Great Britain, the Triangle Country illegals know where the largest welfare checks are to be found…to the tune of nearly $3,500 or so a month. Listen-up and listen good people! America can’t afford either free immigration or a welfare state, and is damned because it won’t survive both.
It is imperative that closing the border is a drastic measure that would have immediate consequences for trade and commerce between the United States and Mexico. Understand that Mexico is America’s third largest trading partner, with approximately $611 billion in cross-border trade last year, according to U.S. Commerce Department, 2018 statistics.

The reality is that it must be realized that for each complex problem, there exists answers that are clear, simple and wrong, such as Democrats insistence that all who arrive at the border must be given immediate entry and legal legitimacy too, even to the point of voting in U.S. elections without being a U.S. citizen.

That my friends is a non-started and subsequently a game-over scenario. Remember, this and remember it good. These so-called Democrats are in fact ideological rabid Communists, radical anti-American Democrats, such as Julian Castro, the former mayor of San Antonio, Texas and a 2020 presidential candidate. They hate America and their agenda would totally eradicate 8 U.S. Code 1325 if they could. Removing that law would decriminalize unlawful entry, which in turn would void — failure to depart the country, fleeing immigration checkpoints, marriage fraud, and commercial enterprise fraud. And obstinate as a rock as these leftist are, they refuse to even admit there is an obvious problem, as they  continue to turn a blind eye to the endless stream of humanity, the dregs and criminals of Central America, who are trying to force their way into America, even as they wave their foreign flags.
President Trump recognizes the crisis and a problem he says can be fixed by Congress, noting last week that, “in 45 minutes”, along with his recent actions have put all involved on notice that this problem will be resolved, or the problem nations will suffer economically. And yes, so too will it bear some economic costs to America, but it MUST BE DONE!  The border must be closed.  We need to understand and accept the fact that yes, ‘a little pain now is much preferable to the complete and udder destruction of our nation later. President Trump should and must absolutely refuse to surrender America’s immigration policies to these anti-American far-left Congressmen, the political-left and their lobbyists and agitators, as well as their foreign instigators.
Finally, President Trump must pursue the complete closure of the southern border if that’s what it takes to force Congress to come to its senses, if that’s possible, on this issue. Bottom line, extraordinary circumstances require extraordinary measures, in the name of the security and sovereignty of the United States and the humanity of legal American citizen. President Trump’s campaign slogan of “America First” must be stood by and imposed NOW!  Photo: from NBC Video

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…

Be the one — no longer willing to huddle together in the helpless band — the one who dares to join the fight.

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

A small fraction of Americans have escaped COVID infection.

The US Constitution must scrupulously be followed, especially by the judiciary. It is not for judges to make laws; it is for them to observe and rule on the constitutionality of issues before them.

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

The SCOTUS leak was explicitly designed to tip the balance back to Progressivisms demands and rally the Democrat base to intimidate conservatives, political and business leaders by threats of violence because the country is in a Biden mess, one he created in January 2021 to reflect his party’s image as one that clings to the failed philosophy of Marx and Engles…

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

The establishment has money and counts itself as power brokers. They love the status quo, the “don’t rock the boat” mentality. They pronounce, “This is our guy!” and expect the masses to get in line. However, many are standing up and deciding to vote conscience over party or affiliation – regardless. But aren’t those the same “stand up” attitude and actions that formed this great nation?

The Ignorance of Politicians Wishing for a Non-Carbon Future is Insane

Congressman Don Beyer (D-VA) seems unaware that in a “non-carbon future,” everything would be dead since carbon is the primary building block of life. Undeterred, the AP release from Beyer’s office claimed: “Warmer temperatures are lowering workers’ incomes, and the increased severity and frequency of natural disasters is lowering overall economic growth…The cost of inaction will be catastrophic.”
