Military Dispatch Details Emerge in Preparation for Migrant Caravan

Mad Dog Mattis isn’t messing around this time.

As our nation is beginning to come to grips with the terror of the serial political mail bomb scares of yesterday, there is another time sensitive issue facing America at her southern border.

Crossing Mexico from south to north this week is a massive caravan of migrants, many of whom began their journey in Honduras and other Central American countries.  The horde of migrants has ballooned in recent days, with reports that they are marching 14,000 strong as of yesterday.  Their mission?  To reach the United States and seek to enter this land of opportunity.  The concern is that this influx will be of the illegal variety, with migrants foregoing the path to citizenship in favor of brute force or stealthy trespassing.

Given the size of the group, even the most minute of misunderstandings could lead to a veritable disaster once they reach the US border.  In preparation for the worst, the American government has announced a plan to dispatch a number of military personnel to the region to preserve the peace.

The Trump administration is planning to dispatch 800 more troops to the border at the direction of a president who has declared illegal immigration a “national emergency” and has been stoking fears about it ahead of the fast-approaching midterms just as he did before his own election.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is expected to sign an order as early as Thursday sending 800 or more troops to the southern border to support the Border Patrol, according to a U.S. official. The official was not authorized to speak publicly because the details had not yet been finalized and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The order comes as thousands of Central American migrants continue their caravan trek through Mexico toward the hoped-for, but still far-distant U.S. border. Trump earlier Thursday tweeted that he was “bringing out the military” to stop those trying to enter the country and blamed Democrats for existing laws.

It is currently impossible to predict when and where the caravan will meet US soil.

Jerry Nadler’s ‘Spray and Pray’ Subpoena Schtick Targets More White House Insiders

For Jerry Nadler, denial isn’t just a river in Egypt.

Jerry Nadler

There is an obvious pall of discontent hanging over the democratic party in the wake of the release of the Mueller report. Robert Mueller’s 22 month long investigation into the “RussiaGate” conspiracy theory has left us with more questions than answers, at least in some regard, as President Trump and his team continue to tout the report’s broader realizations.  “No obstruction, no collusion” has become a battlecry as of late, even as federal lawmakers insist that Mueller intended for Congress to make a decision on the “obstruction” piece. Of the democrats looking to continue their digging into the now-completed Mueller report, Jerry Nadler has been instrumental in stoking the fires of discontent, scattering subpoenas throughout Washington DC in hopes of “getting” President Trump…one way or another. His latest legal maneuver is targeting Don McGhan, former White House counsel, who disobeyed the President’s wishes, according to the Mueller report. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., on Monday subpoenaed former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify publicly next month following last week’s release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation. Nadler described McGahn, who stepped down as White House counsel in October 2018, as “a critical witness to many of the alleged instances of obstruction of justice and other misconduct described in the Special Counsel’s report.” “The Special Counsel’s report, even in redacted form, outlines substantial evidence that President Trump engaged in obstruction and other abuses,” Nadler said. “It now falls to Congress to determine for itself the full scope of the misconduct and to decide what steps to take in the exercise of our duties of oversight, legislation and constitutional accountability.” Nadler has given McGhan a set of deadlines as well, urging the former Trump lawyer to testify before May 21, and provide underlying documents regarding…

President Trump and Family Sue Congress Over Tax Tussle

The President is fighting back against the “resistance” democrats who subpoenaed his tax returns…but will the tactic work?

Democrats the nation over are digging in their heels after the release of the Mueller report, vowing to continue “resisting” the President no matter what, and by any means necessary. The media have done their part by continuing to divide the nation down political lines in ways that our nation hasn’t seen since The Civil War.  These cable-news cheerleaders are hoping that the nation erupts into chaos, as it will provide them with juicy, can’t-miss television to fuel their advertisers. In this continued crusade to somehow “get” the President, a number of prominent democrats are now revisiting the fight to have the President’s tax returns made public…something that Trump himself has fought nail and tooth against. Now, the Commander in Chief is taking his fight to the next level with a lawsuit. President Donald Trump and his business filed suit against Democratic House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings on Monday to block a subpoena sent last week seeking information about the president’s finances. In the complaint filed in Washington, D.C., federal court Monday morning, Trump’s lawyers said that Democrats have “declared all-out political war” against him. “Subpoenas are their weapon of choice,” the filing states. The lawsuit comes just days after a congressional committee filed subpoenas for several years’ worth of Donald Trump’s tax returns. The President has long avoided making such records public, citing advice from his lawyers regarding ongoing federal audits of the data.
