Oh, good. Another Obama judge blocking President Trump from doing things to benefit all Americans. Haywood Gilliam just found himself in a big mess, but it’s all his doing. From Washington Examiner:

A federal judge who partially blocked President Trump’s plans to build a border wall along the United States-Mexico border previously donated almost $30,000 to former President Obama, other Democrats, and a political action committee.

U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam, an Obama appointee confirmed in 2014, donated $6,900 to Barack Obama’s debut campaign for president and $14,500 to his reelection campaign, according to federal election records. The same records also indicate he contributed $4,500 to the Democratic National Committee in 2012 and, between 2012 and 2015, sent $3,100 to the Covington Burling LLP PAC, which supports candidates from both parties. His contributions totaled $29,000.

There’s more…

Gilliam made the donations, first reported by the Epoch Times, prior to serving as a U.S. District judge. He had said during his confirmation hearing that he “would base my decisions solely on the facts of each case and the applicable precedent, without regard to any political ideology or motivation,” and that “any personal views would not interfere in any way with my ability to neutrally apply the law.”

Patrick Shanahan will most likely become the next Secretary of Defense after he was recently nominated to the post by President Trump.

Shanahan is currently the acting SecDef, having filled the shoes of James “Mad Dog” Mattis.

Shanahan made clear that hundreds of miles of wall have been contracted to be built on America’s southern border with Mexico.

Democrat hearts are breaking across the country.

So @ActingSecDef just told Congress that 256 new miles of Trump’s Wall is now funded to be built, at the rate of half a mile every day. He said that we will see about “63 additional new miles of wall” constructed six months from now. #thewall

WATCH:

President Trump will now and forever be linked to the wall.

It was his biggest promise to voters in 2016 and he is not content with the current influx of illegal immigration – nor should he be.

45 is now saying that hundreds of miles of wall will be completed by the end of next year.

LOOK:

Congress must change the Immigration Laws now, Dems won’t act. Wall is being built – 400 miles by end of next year. Mexico must stop the march to Border! @foxandfriends

That’s a lot of wall.

Will it happen? Time will tell.

Of course, Trump has to focus on re-election. If he were to lose, bye-bye wall – forever.

POTUS is done playing games.

He knows, as does everybody, that America is a nation of immigrants. That’s a given.

But when too many people abuse the system, something has to change. Things cannot continue to go down the same track when it comes to immigration, legal or illegal.

At some point, enough is enough.

Allow POTUS to elaborate:

TRUMP: “This is our new statement- the system is full. We can’t take you anymore. Whether it’s asylum or anything you want – illegal immigration – we can’t take you anymore. Our country is full. Our area is full. The sector is full. Can’t take you anymore, I’m sorry. Turn around”

Ted Cruz Blocks Resolution Honoring RBG After Democrats Try Slipping Through ‘Dying Wish’

Published

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer thinks he’s a slick old billy goat, but he’s no match for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who blocked Schumer’s resolution to honor the recently deceased Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg after he tried to slip in some language that would emphasize honoring her “dying wish” not to be replaced until after the inauguration. Hey, you know, we all make dying wishes. Most of us don’t get to see them come true. That’s just a part of life. Here’s more on this from the Daily Wire: “Republicans came to us with this resolution, but it ignored Justice Ginsburg’s dying wish — what she called her ‘most fervent wish’ — that she not be replaced until a new president is installed. So we simply have added it to the exact same text of the resolution that the Republicans gave us,” Schumer said on the Senate floor. “All the kind words and lamentations about Justice Ginsburg from the Republican majority will be totally empty if those Republicans ignore her dying wish and instead move to replace Justice Ginsburg with someone who will tear down everything she built,” Schumer continued. He singled out abortion, gay marriage, union rights, and healthcare as the main issues he fears will crumble under a Trump-appointed justice. Cruz, in response, said, “Unfortunately, the Democratic leader has put forth an amendment to turn that bipartisan resolution into a partisan resolution.” “Specifically, the Democratic leader wants to add a statement that Justice Ginsburg’s position should not be filled until a new president is installed, purportedly based on a comment Justice Ginsburg made to family members shortly before she passed,” the Texas senator added. Ginsburg reportedly dictated to her granddaughter that her “most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”…

Top Debate Coach Reveals What Could Potentially Derail Biden During First Presidential Debate

If you’re dying for some entertaining television, you’re going to finally get what you are craving next week when President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden go head-to-head during a televised debate, the first of the season. This, ladies and gentlemen, is going to be one for the ages that you won’t want to miss. Ahead of the debate, Brett O’Donnell, a top debate coach, has revealed a few things that might end up derailing Biden during this first debate. via Fox News: “[Biden] has not done any tough interviews in this campaign so far, whether or not he can handle the toughest of interviews, a presidential debate, being attacked by the president and also tough questions from Chris Wallace in that first debate remains to be seen,” O’Donnell told “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday. “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace was selected to moderate the first presidential debate scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 29, at Case Western University and the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. The format for the first showdown calls for six 15-minute-long segments – with each segment dedicated to a particular topic. Trump was interviewed by Wallace in July and Kilmeade pointed out that the president “basically went through” the list of debate topics “with the guy that’s going to be hitting him with the questions.” “I think that’s a tremendous advantage,” the debate coach said. “First of all, Chris Wallace is a tough interviewer, he is tough on everyone.” “The president has been through that now and so he can anticipate how Chris Wallace might approach this debate,” O’Donnell continued. No matter how you cut it, the president is far more prepared and mentally lucid for this debate than Joe Biden could ever hope to be in his current state. There are so many…
