Americans STUNNED as Gov’t Sends $10 BILLION South, BUT STILL NO WALL?!

Something stinks to high Heaven in the DC Swamp, and the American people are hoping the President will sniff it out.

When it comes to the idea of “the swamp” that Donald Trump promised to drain, the American people are growing perhaps a bit jaded.

Sure, rewriting an entire generation of crooked politicos can’t happen overnight, or even in the scant two years that Donald Trump has been attempting to govern, wading his way upstream through “resistance” rhetoric.  But there are some serious concerns now about just how swampy the government is acting in the face of Trump’s agenda.

Take, for instance, the fact that there appears to be no border wall in the works, still, yet the government is looking to send $10 billion, with a “B”, south of the border.

The U.S. State Department announced on Tuesday that it is pledging more than $10 billion to help strengthen the economies of Central America and Southern Mexico to stem the flow of thousands of migrants surging into the country.

“The United States pledged $5.8 billion in aid and investment Tuesday for strengthening government and economic development in Central America and another $4.8 billion in development aid for southern Mexico,” the Associated Press (AP) reported.

“The U.S aid aims to promote better security conditions and job opportunities as part of a regional plan to allow Central Americans to remain in their countries and not have to emigrate,” the AP reported.

That figure is precisely double the amount that the President has been touting as the necessary amount to complete the border wall project.

The White House yesterday signaled that it may not hold the democrats’ feet to the fire when it comes to wall funding, even after the President promised a showdown over funding the government if the left refused to capitulate.

First Day Of Public Impeachment Hearings Turns Up The Pressure On Moderate Democrats

Published

on

Much attention is now being cast toward moderate Democrats in the House, especially in swing districts, with the first day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump now under wraps. The day finished up without any major revelations coming to light, highlighting the weakness of the Democrats’ key witnesses in the case against the president. Many of these witnesses are relying on second-hand information, having not interacted even once with the president. Here’s more from Fox News: At one point in Wednesday’s hearing, Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., even appeared to embrace hearsay testimony, claiming that “hearsay can be much better evidence than direct” and that “countless people have been convicted on hearsay because the courts have routinely allowed and created, needed exceptions to hearsay.” It was unclear which of those limited exceptions would apply to Wednesday’s testimony — and whether Quigley’s argument would persuade critical swing-vote Democrats. The House is now comprised of 431 members, meaning Democrats need 217 yeas to impeach Trump. There are currently 233 Democrats, so Democrats can only lose 16 of their own and still impeach the president. 31 House Democrats represent more moderate districts that Trump carried in 2016. Freshman Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich. — who flipped a GOP district in 2018 that Trump won by 7 points in 2016 — told Fox News that she was tentatively weighing all the evidence. “My constituents expect me to make an objective decision,” Slotkin said as the hearings concluded, “not one based on an hour of testimony.” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1194710194166497281 There’s also a report floating around that is suggesting that if House Democrats impeach the president, Senate Republicans are going to hold a lengthy trial that will “scramble” the 2020 Democratic presidential primary by making it mandatory for several of the contenders to stay put in…

Donald Trump Jr. Shares His Thoughts On First Day Of Impeachment Hearings: ‘I’ve Never Seen Anything More Ridiculous’

Published

Donald Trump Jr. was not at all impressed with the first day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry against his dad, President Donald Trump, noting that he’s “never seen anything more ridiculous.” The first day of hearings wrapped up without a single drop of new major revelations. Speaking on “Hannity,” Trump Jr. noted that while nothing major was revealed, the whole day showcased the weakness of the case Democrats have against his father. Here’s more from Fox News: “You see exactly what America voted against in 2016, career government bureaucrats doing their thing,” the executive vice president of the Trump Organization said. “Everything was hearsay, ‘I heard it from a friend, who heard it from a friend, how heard it from a friend.’ I’m saying, ‘this is a joke.’” At one point in Wednesday’s hearing, Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., even appeared to embrace hearsay testimony, claiming that “hearsay can be much better evidence than direct” and that “countless people have been convicted on hearsay because the courts have routinely allowed and created, needed exceptions to hearsay.” It was unclear which of those limited exceptions would apply to Wednesday’s testimony — and whether Quigley’s argument would persuade critical swing-vote Democrats. Trump commented on Quigley’s statements telling Sean Hannity, “Then I heard the Democrats, and this is when you realize how bad or, frankly, nonexistent their case is, ‘well hearsay is often times much better than regular evidence.’ I’m saying, ‘did that guy say that with a straight face?’” Trump then went on to compare Quigley’s comments to “the telephone game we learned about in kindergarten.” “So it’s better to have heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend than to have heard it with your own ears? I mean that’s the…
