President Trump’s biggest promise to the American people was that he’d deliver a wall on the southern border.

He has delivered and he will continue to deliver.

Trump knows that if he doesn’t come through, he may just be the first one-term president since George H.W. Bush.

The Pentagon notified Congress Monday night that it has authorized the transfer of $1 billion to begin new wall construction along the US-Mexico border, drawing immediate objections from Democratic lawmakers.

A Pentagon budget reprogramming notification sent to Capitol Hill on Monday and obtained by CNN indicates that up to $1 billion will go toward building 57 miles of fencing, improving roads and other measures on the southern border.

The Department of Defense authorized the Army Corp of Engineers to begin planning and construction for the project Monday night. The department will direct the funds toward 18-foot-high fencing along the Yuma and El Paso sections of the border, according to a letter acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan sent to Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen.

One month ago, President Trump tweeted a video of the wall being built in New Mexico.

As you’d imagine, the left was apoplectic.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has become known for her ramblings on Instagram Live.

Given that she’s a Millennial, it’s a smart way for her to connect with fans.

During a recent feed, AOC went off on everything from President Trump and the border wall to white supremacy and the failed Amazon headquarters deal.

Check out some of her rantings

Ocasio-Cortez made the comments during a 9 a.m. Instagram Live feed in her leisure attire as she sipped coffee in her sparsely decorated D.C. apartment, which she described as her “monastery with no furniture.” The broadcast is the latest in a string of similar online videos that have helped to cement Ocasio-Cortez’s status as the Democrat Party’s leading socialist darling by blending her candid thoughts on politics with her transition to Congress.

I think everybody should have the insurance I have and that’s just the way it should be.

I think [the wall is] a moral abomination. I think it’s like the Berlin wall. 70 percent of the American people think this is the dumbest idea ever.

It’s not my problem the majority of the American people think it’s a scam, a sham, a monument to white supremacy. It’s not my fault.

For those of you who don’t know about the actual deal, you should know that New York City was getting totally screwed with this Amazon deal. We were, like, on paper giving helipads. We were, like, renaming creeks. We were providing, like, hard tangible tax breaks for very little on the paper in return. The process was designed to skip every community process.

“I’m not going to just knock on the door of your house and say this is mine now,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

If I just walk up to you on the street and say, ‘hey, if you give me twenty bucks, I promise I’m gonna come back – I’m gonna leave but I gonna promise I’m gonna come back and give you a really nice coat. But I need to leave, I need to take your twenty bucks first, it’s not going to happen at once.’ You’d be like, ‘you’re crazy, no, get out of my face.’

Confirmed: AOC, Ilhan Omar & Rashida Tlaib Will Officially Endorse Bernie Sanders for President

Makes you wonder what cabinet positions they might’ve been promised…

Omar, Tlaib, and Ocasio-Cortez. Without question, three of the very [insert word here] people to become members of Congress in quite some time. The rookie lawmakers are the most prominent members of “The Squad” and constantly find themselves in trouble for saying and doing silly things, but you already knew that. In a surprise to literally no person on planet earth, all three Democrat Socialists will endorse Bernie Sanders for president. Not Warren. Not Biden. Not Booker or Buttigieg or Gabbard or whoever else. They’re going with their fellow Democrat Socialist. Might Democrats say they’re acting, I don’t know…sexist!? by choosing a man over a woman? Look out for it! Even though this announcement is likely to get plenty of airtime from far-left networks, it should do little to move the needle in Bernie’s favor – at least if it comes down to a general election battle between Sanders and Trump. Think about this, though…what cabinet positions were Tlaib, Omar, and AOC promised if Bernie wins? Scary thought, right? From Fox News: Fox News has learned that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., will appear with Sanders on Saturday in Queens, N.Y., at a “Bernie’s Back” rally designed to generate excitement for the senator’s campaign following his recent heart procedure. Rep. Ihan Omar, D-Minn., will also endorse the candidate, Fox News confirmed. New: Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib will also endorse Sanders, according to source. AOC will, as @daveweigel and @WaPoSean first reported, will do the same on Saturday in NYC. https://twitter.com/GregJKrieg/status/1184303508188794880?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Focasio-cortez-omar-tlaib-reportedly-will-endorse-bernie-sanders As if everything they’ve said about Israel wasn’t bad enough, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib decided to take things a full step further. It’s pretty bad. And yet, nobody in the mainstream media will say a word – neither will any of their liberal colleagues. LOOK: Oof. Looks like both…

Pelosi Makes It Clear: Democrats Will Not Hold Vote On Impeachment Inquiry Into Trump

Game over?

Published

It’s all over, folks. Democrats, once again, thought they had President Trump caught between a rock and a hard place. And yet, once again, Democrats didn’t do their homework before pulling the trigger. Go figure, huh? With all these absolutely phony, made-up “get Trump” tactics the left has pulled, you’d think they’d have scored on at least one attempt. But nope. They’re still swingin’ for the fences and striking out like they’re wearing blindfolds when they step up to the plate. On Tuesday evening, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) made it clear that her far-left party would not proceed with a vote on an impeachment inquiry. The reason, even though they won’t admit it, is because they have nothing to go on. Not a single thing. It’s just too bad the uninformed and the mainstream media kept goading liberals into thinking there was a chance. But no dice! CONFIRMED: Pelosi informs caucus there will NOT be a formal floor vote to launch the impeachment inquiry https://twitter.com/scottwongDC/status/1184240274417041408?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1184240274417041408&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fjust-in-pelosi-says-no-impeachment-vote%2F Schiff says Republicans “have completely been represented” in these closed-door depositions. They have attended and ask questions. “There is full participation by the GOP” He says that he anticipates releasing transcripts https://twitter.com/scottwongDC/status/1184246948808802306 From Fox News: The move was seemingly a boon for moderate Democrats in swing districts, who have been reluctant to have a formal vote in favor of the proceedings as the 2020 elections approach — even as several of them have also sought to appease liberal constituents by vocally backing the ongoing inquiry. A congressional aide familiar with House Democrats’ discussions told Fox News that many House Democrats did not want to be seen as letting the White House dictate how the House conducted itself. Last week, the White House sent a fiery letter to House Democrats announcing that it would not cooperate…
