Chuck Schumer Tries Pulling Rank on President Over Border Wall

Schumer’s latest attempt to berate the President is far more inflammatory than inspirational.

Sure, President Trump is an unconventional President in several aspects of the job, but that doesn’t mean that the regular rules of hierarchy don’t apply.

While many have said that the President’s job is not to “direct legislation”, he certainly has an obligation to the people who elected him to stay on-message and on-brand, so to speak.  That is precisely why we have found ourselves in such a pickle over the funding of a wall on our southern border.

The President campaigned heavily, (and we mean heavily), on his praise to seal the southern border with a physical barrier worthy of the federal agents who have demanded it.  Trump was elected very much because of this stern and staunch feeling on the issue, and now the left is planning to abandon the wall – despite the cries of the American people.

These are the same American people who spent millions of their own dollars to show support for the wall.

Now, democratic stalwart Chuck Schumer is boldly attempting to undermine the will of the American people and their elected President by commanding the Commander in Chief to abandon his plans for the wall itself.

Schumer said the shutdown could end immediately if Trump simply dropped his demand for money that was the centerpiece of his presidential campaign. Trump had pledged that Mexico would pay for the wall; Mexico has refused.

“If you want to open the government, you must abandon the wall,” Schumer said.

But Trump, digging in, tweeted about “the crisis of illegal activity” at American’s southern border is “real and will not stop until we build a great Steel Barrier or Wall.”

Democrats said they are open to other proposals that don’t include the wall, which Schumer said is too costly and unpopular. They have offered to keep spending at existing levels of $1.3 billion for border fencing and other security.

President Trump has indicated that he is willing to remain steadfast in his demands for as long as it takes.

Largest County In Maryland Snubs ICE, Refuses To Cooperate With Them

Unbelievable.

Published

One of the most popular means the left has employed to help aid illegal immigrants in breaking United States immigration law is the “sanctuary city,” a place where these folks can hide without worry of being handed over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. Granted, such behavior is technically a violation of federal law, but that’s not stopping them from not cooperating. There are currently nine states, which includes New Jersey, California, and Illinois, that consider themselves “sanctuary states.” Many other cities around the country exist. Well, the largest county in Maryland is now joining those ranks as they are refusing to cooperate with ICE to help keep our nation safe and secure from those who seek to infiltrate our nation and abuse the systems we have in place. via The Daily Wire: On Monday, Montgomery County, Maryland’s largest county, officially joins the list. County Executive Marc Elrich will sign an executive order on Monday that will keep the area from cooperating with ICE, even though the policy has been unofficially on the books for some time. “The Promoting Community Trust Executive Order aims to reaffirm current county policy and improve community security by ensuring that immigrant and otherwise vulnerable communities can engage with county departments,” Elrich said in a statement provided to WTOP. The policy ensures that county agencies do not ask those who seek help about their immigration status, the outlet reported. Nor will these agencies cooperate with ICE. The county’s current police chief, Marcus Jones, says that the policy is already in action. According to Jones they have no direct contact with ICE on immigration issues, nor are they doing any operations with ICE in the county. Even if the police department has an illegal immigrant in custody, they will not be lending a hand to ICE…

Trump Destroys Washington Post For ‘Fake News’ About Battle With ‘The Squad’

This is why people love Trump.

Published

on

President Trump took to Twitter on Sunday and Monday to do what he does best and completely annihilate the Washington Post over “fake news” report about his battle against radical leftist congresswomen now known as “The Squad.” The Washington Post plastered as story on their front page with the headline, “A Twitter storm and its aftermath,” which takes a deep look at the aftermath of Trump’s “racist” tweets telling Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley to “go back” to their countries of origin if they hate America. However, it’s important to note that such a statement wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense seeing as how only Omar was born outside of the United States. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “The Washington Post Story, about my speech in North Carolina and tweet, with its phony sources who do not exist, is Fake News,” Trump tweeted Sunday. “The only thing people were talking about is the record setting crowd and the tremendous enthusiasm, far greater than the Democrats. You’ll see in 2020!” He followed that tweet by repeating a phrase that’s become one of his refrains about how the media treats him: “Presidential Harassment!” The president then once again emphasized why he has singled out the Squad: “I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country. They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!” On Monday, the president tweeted the following: “The Amazon Washington Post front page story yesterday was total Fake News. They said ‘Advisors wrote new talking points and handed him reams of opposition research on the four Congresswomen.’ Now really, does that sound like…
