After declaring a national emergency at the southern border on Friday, the third of his presidency, President Trump was met with harsh criticism from the left.

Not exactly a surprise.

Democrats have already announced they’ll be launching an investigation into the legitimacy of the emergency.

However, some people seem to be forgetting what previous presidents have done. For example, there are 31 national emergencies still ongoing – dating back to 1979.

President Carter declared two, President Clinton declared 17, and President W. Bush declared 12.

How about President Obama? His number stands at 13.

Where’s the fuss by the MSM?

From Conservative Tribune:

Then we get to former President Barack Obama, who declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. Thus far, President Trump has declared three active and ongoing national emergencies.

Of Obama’s 11 continuing national emergencies, nine of them were focused exclusively on foreign nations, while only one seemed focused on protecting America — a declaration aimed at punishing individuals “engaging in significant malicious cyber-enabled activities.”

All of the rest of Obama’s national emergencies were focused on blocking property or prohibiting transactions/travel for individuals engaged in various activities in — by order of the date of enactment — Somalia, Libya, transnational criminal organizations, Yemen, Ukraine, South Sudan, Central African Republic, Venezuela and Burundi.

The 44th president’s border patrol chief is going against his former boss and siding with the current president on building a wall at the southern border.

When asked, Is the wall (or a barrier) the best solution?, here’s what Mark Morgan had to say during an interview with The Daily Wire:

That’s a good question, and I think that’s another reason why decided to break my silence because the rhetoric is really getting twisted, and it really confuses and misinforms the American people.

The answer is, “yeah,” but there’s a comma. So yes, the wall works. It’s not needed everywhere, but it is needed in strategic locations along the southwest border. And what do we mean by the wall? The border security experts will tell you that the wall in and of itself is not the solution. The wall is a critical element as part of a multilayer strategy of infrastructure, technology, and personnel. So yes, as part of that multilayer approach, the wall absolutely works and there’s historical data that can prove that. You can go to San Diego, Nogales, El Paso, anywhere where that multilayered approach has been used, where the wall is part of that, and illegal immigration has drastically reduced by around 90%, and overall crime in those areas has drastically reduced as well. It’s not hyperbole; it’s not driven by political ideology. That’s fact, and data can show that.

Morgan was then asked, What is the proof that a physical barrier would work?

He noted, “Go talk to the Yuma County Sheriff, and he’ll tell you that in 2005, 2006 when they started building the wall as part of that multilayer strategy, it works. He’ll say illegal immigration in that area went down 90%, overall crime in his county went down drastically. It’s just fact.

Morgan spoke with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson earlier in the month:

From Daily Wire:

Mark Morgan, Border Patrol chief for former President Barack Obama, told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Monday that physical border barriers “absolutely work” and that President Donald Trump is “right” when it comes to the southern border.

When Carlson asked Morgan, who was dismissed by the Trump administration, whether border walls work, Morgan responded: “Yes, they absolutely work.”

WATCH: CNN Tries Getting 8 Women to Admit Trump Is Racist, But It Goes Horribly Wrong

Good going, guys. This should definitely help ratings!

If they’re trying to look silly then they’re killing it. CNN refuses to acknowledge any of the great work President Trump has done for the country simply because they don’t like him as a person. It’s abhorrent. Check out their latest attempt at getting Republicans to “admit” that 45 is a stone-cold racist… From Daily Wire: CNN’s Randi Kaye asked a group of Republican women if they thought President Donald Trump’s recent tweets attacking four far-left congresswomen were racist and all eight fired back with a resounding “no.” The segment, which aired on Tuesday night on “Anderson Cooper 360°,” featured a group of eight Trump supporters in Dallas, Texas. One supporter, Sharon Bolan, said, “I’m a brown-skinned woman. I am a legal immigrant. I agree with him.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/AC360/status/1151293969076109313?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1151293969076109313&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F49570%2Fcnn-tries-convince-gop-women-trump-racist-doesnt-ryan-saavedra According to freshman Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib (MI), all Congressional Democrats are racist. No joke. She actually said that, revealing what conservatives have known to be true for decades. Did Tlaib mean to say it, though? IT SURE LOOKS THAT WAY. Here’s how it all started… A woman sent a tweet arguing that Democrats are not doing enough to protect embattled Dem Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN)… The attacks on @IlhanMN and subsequent lack of support from Democratic leadership continues to prove that this system was never meant for us. Do not applaud diversity and the “first” Muslims in any space if you’re not willing to be a true ally and defend us.#IStandwithIlhan https://twitter.com/MsMaheenAhmed/status/1117084384614473729?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1117084384614473729&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F04%2F13%2Flook-out-nancy-pelosi-rep-rashida-tlaib-just-called-out-your-whole-party-as-racist%2F Enter Tlaib, who dropped the bomb… They put us in photos when they want to show our party is diverse.

PHOTOS: Chris Pratt Compared to White Supremacists For Wearing ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ Shirt

IS THIS REAL LIFE?

Being proud to be an American is almost a sin, nowadays. Liberals can’t stand anyone who loves their country. No more examples are needed. We’ve seen enough. Check out the reaction Christian actor Chris Pratt received for wearing a t-shirt that reads, “Don’t Tread On Me”… From Daily Wire: Vulture writer Hunter Harris posted the photo of Pratt in the shirt on Monday; Yahoo! picked up the “story” the next day, claiming the t-shirt featured a “controversial symbol” and showcasing online far-left critics. https://twitter.com/hunteryharris/status/1150866021147906055?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1150866021147906055&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F49563%2Fchris-pratt-criticized-wearing-white-supremacist-t-amanda-prestigiacomo Reactions: https://twitter.com/timbyrnes89/status/1151121049347485696?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1151121049347485696&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F49563%2Fchris-pratt-criticized-wearing-white-supremacist-t-amanda-prestigiacomo https://twitter.com/akclarke_/status/1151129033989611520?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1151129033989611520&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F49563%2Fchris-pratt-criticized-wearing-white-supremacist-t-amanda-prestigiacomo Pratt constantly talks about deep faith in Christ and his relationship with the Lord. He’s also an avid hunter and pro-American patriot who calls out faux liberal outrage when he sees it, just like the rest of us. If Pratt is liberal then President Trump is humble. Neither is true. He can’t admit it for obvious reasons, but Chris Pratt is certainly conservative (or at the absolute least, right-leaning). That reason alone is exactly why TV Guide believes Chris is “problematic” to viewers. No joke. From Daily Wire: One of the few Hollywood stars that conservatives feel actually sees the world from a similar point of view is “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt, who is willing to openly criticize aspects of liberal culture and proclaim his faith in God, while managing to never come off as self-righteous or self-serving. So, perhaps it’s no surprise that TV Guide would feel compelled to write a hit-piece on Pratt warning its readers about his “problematic life offscreen” that is sure to offend their (presumably left-wing) sensibilities, including that he once mocked “outrage culture.” https://twitter.com/TVGuide/status/1076160619831803904?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw The un-Christmas-spirited piece begins by describing Pratt’s transformation from likable TV personality to “Hollywood’s golden boy” with his roles in “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World.” But by the…
