Pentagon Defies POTUS in Border Troop Battle

With immigration leading the nation’s concerns at the polls, you would think that the Pentagon’s attitude would be a bit different.

With only a few weeks until a massive caravan of Central American marchers arrive at our border, there is dissent within the federal government of the United States.

President Trump, who has been tough on immigration from the very onset of his political career, has been working overtime to prepare for the coming crisis.  With an estimated 14,000 defiant, would-be immigrants headed north through Mexico, the United States has a duty to enforce the law upon their arrival.

Given the lack of border security that Trump campaigned on still existing, the President has ordered additional military assets to the southwest to deal with the incoming migrants.

Of course, the left has not been on board with the plan, and it seems that the Pentagon has caught a bit of “resistance” fever as well.

When the Trump administration first asked the Pentagon to send troops to the southern border, the administration wanted the troops to take on duties that Department of Defense officials viewed as law enforcement functions, CNN has learned.

The Pentagon said no.
According to two defense official familiar with the request, the Department of Homeland Security asked that the Pentagon provide a reserve force that could be called upon to provide “crowd and traffic control” and safeguard Customs and Border Protection personnel at the border to counter a group of Central American migrants walking to the US border to request asylum.
The Pentagon rejected the request on October 26, according to one of the officials, even as it signed off on providing DHS with air and logistics support, medical personnel and engineers.
Concerns over the arrival of the migrant caravan could very well be contributing to the polling reality in which Americans tend to identify immigration as their number one concern heading to the polls on Tuesday.

CNN Medical Analyst Wants To Cancel Christmas: ‘We Just Can’t Do It This Year’

Well, it seems the radical left in this country, especially the folks who work for mainstream media outlets, are just chomping at the bit to ruin the holidays for everyone, which isn’t all that surprising given how much they seem to hate the reason for the season in the first place. CNN medical analyst, Dr. Jonathan Reiner, appeared on the network where he said that “we just can’t do” Christmas “this year” because of the coronavirus. “So the next big holiday is obviously the Christmas, New Year’s holiday where people tend to travel, want to travel, want to be with family, but we just can’t do it this year. We’re going to cause needless deaths and particularly that’s among people we really care about, you know, our most vulnerable, our grandparents, our parents, our neighbors,” the doctor said. “We can’t travel this year. We need to stay home. This is a sacrifice that Americans can make and we should be making it for each other. Stay home, mask up, we’ll have a great series of holidays next year. We’ll really have something to celebrate next year,” Reiner stated. via Daily Wire: Reiner also said anyone who traveled for Thanksgiving “should be quarantining.” “They should be quarantining for probably seven to 10 days and then getting tested. That’s what they should do. If they just go back to what they were doing — going back to work, they are going to spread the virus. So much of this virus is spread by asymptomatic folks. So stay home for more than a week, get tested, then go back to work,” he said. “This virus is, you know, no longer isolated to certain enclaves in the United States. It’s all over the country. And when people travel from place to place, they just…

Moderna Files For Emergency Approval For New Coronavirus Vaccine

Published

Moderna released a statement on Monday saying they are going to ask the Food and Drug Administration to give emergency approval to its new experimental COVID-19 vaccine. This makes Moderna the second company to file this request, following hot on the heels of Pfizer who filed their application earlier in the month. Moderna stated that new data shows their vaccine as being 94.1 percent effective in preventing COVID-19 infection. Pfizer’s effective rate was 95 percent. via Daily Wire: “We believe that our vaccine will provide a new and powerful tool that may change the course of this pandemic and help prevent severe disease, hospitalizations and death,” Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel said in a statement. Bancel said last week that 20 million doses will be available by the end of the year. The FDA’s vaccine advisory committee is set to meet Dec. 17 to review data from the two companies. Pfizer said on Nov. 9 that its developmental vaccine for COVID-19 may be 90% effective at inoculating people against the disease. The rate of effectiveness was calculated by analyzing early data from 94 trial participants in a study involving 43,538 subjects from all over the world. The small early sample means that the protection rate could change by the time the study ends and all the participants are accounted for, according to the AP. One of the major differences between the two vaccines is that the one being produced by Moderna does not need to be put in sub-zero storage, while Pfizer’s does. This makes the Moderna vaccine much easier to distribute. A third vaccine is also in the works from AstraZeneca and Oxford University. This particular vaccine is said to be 90 percent effective. Guess now we’re just playing the waiting game to see which of these companies gets approved first. They…
