In essence, border security in exchange for DACA amnesty.

Good deal?

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina urged the White House and Democrats to consider supporting what he called a “breakthrough” compromise on immigration that would allow President Trump to secure his $5 billion demand for border security funds and also codify protections for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders.

Graham: “I don’t see Democrats giving us more money, unless they get something.

Graham said he proposed the idea to Mr. Trump, who he said called it “interesting.” He said the deal would entail the White House supporting the Bridge Act, a bill Graham co-sponsored to grant DACA recipients three-year work permits, as well as legislation to extend the legal status of TPS holders. In exchange, Democrats would need to support a spending measure that includes $5 billion in funding for border security.

Illinois Congressman Luis Gutierrez has been arrested once or twice for protesting the Trump administration.

He’s now ready to pay President Trump’s “ransom” and potentially give in on the border wall IF…Dems get amnesty for illegals already in the country.

Guttierrez: “For my friends on the left, remember, there’s going to be a ransom that is going to be required. Pay it. It’s the right thing to do, because we’re never going to be able to overcome the 60 votes in the Senate.

There are people on the right that are going to want certain things. I don’t know if we have to give them a wall […] but we’re gonna have to sit down and negotiate.

According to 45: “the complete wall will be built”…

Ann Coulter, who has soured on Trump after being his biggest supporter, is happy with the tweet:

While speaking with reporters on Christmas Day, Trump blasted Democrats for their wall stance:

President Trump: The people of this country want border security. It’s not a question of me. I wasn’t able to be with my family. I thought it was wrong for me to be with my family. My family is in Florida, Palm Beach. I would rather not be doing shutdowns… The only one who doesn’t want the wall are the Democrats because they don’t mind open borders. But open borders mean massive amounts of crime. The Democrats don’t want it because they want open borders. And yet every one of those Democrats approved the wall, or a fence, or very, very substantial barriers… The only time they went against it, the only time. There was only one time, when Donald Trump said we’re going to build a wall.

Barack Obama went around Congress constantly.

Republicans didn’t like that very much, and rightly so.

There are checks and balances for a reason.

When it comes to building a border wall, past congresses have voted in favor.

Therefore, would President Trump really be doing anything wrong by reallocating funds from random departments in order to keep Americans safe?

Everybody should say “no.”

The Department of Agriculture has about $200 billion in outstanding loans for rural development projects such as community buildings, bridges, roads, fire stations, police stations, water projects and barriers such as fencing and walls. These federal loans to local communities have low default rates that are attractive to private-sector investors because they represent large, reliable cash flows — the kind of investments that big money funds desperately desire.

About $50-100 billion worth currently held by USDA are very marketable and attractive commercial paper investments. The rights to collect the remainder of the debt on these loans could be sold to private parties who would pay a premium for such a steady stream of cash payments. The sales would give a profit cushion to the government and alleviate taxpayers from any future risk of nonpayment while retaining certain borrower guarantees.

For example, Trump could authorize the sale of $10 billion of USDA rural water loans on the secondary market, which could bring in a lump sum payment of $12 billion or more. Revenue from these proceeds could be directed to build the border wall.

Trump wouldn’t even be doing anything out of the ordinary.

The precedent for moving money around has been done before.

While the Constitution gives Congress power over the government’s purse strings, presidents of both parties have pushed the limits of their flexibility to use executive-branch funds free of congressional micromanagement. President George W. Bush was criticized for keeping billions in war spending off the books so it could be diverted to secret operations free from congressional oversight. Conservatives complained that President Barack Obama spent billions on health care without congressional authorization.

“Sadistic bastard” Trump tweeted a picture of a new proposed border wall.

Trump fans will love it. However, the mainstream media, Congressional Democrats, and liberals from coast to coast will absolutely hate it.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Published

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
