Trump Gives Dems MASSIVE Ultimatum on Border Wall Funding

Will the democrats dare to cross this latest line in the sand?

Published

government shutdown

From the very onset of his presidential experience, Donald Trump has been relentless with his views on illegal immigration.

His desire for a “big, beautiful” wall on the border between the United States and Mexico was very likely what put him over the top with republican voters, seeing as moderate GOP members had long shied away from the idea due to their need to pull undecided voters from the moderate democrats.  Trump changed all that, stating bluntly that he was going to enforce the laws already on the books, as they pertained to immigration.

Now, after two years in office, only a minute amount of progress has been made on the subject of “the wall”, with the left consistently stymying the will of those who voted for Trump in 2016.

The President’s patience has worn thin, as we can see from his latest ultimatum for the democrats.

President Donald Trump reiterated his demand in a new interview that Congress appropriate $5 billion for a border wall, saying he would “totally be willing” to shut down the government if he doesn’t get the funding.

The government faces a potential shutdown on December 7 if a funding deal is not reached. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters on Tuesday that Democrats’ position remains at $1.6 billion for border security measures agreed to by GOP and Democratic appropriators.
Trump told Politico in an interview published Wednesday that he believes he would win a political battle with Democrats over the issue.
“I will tell you, politically speaking, that issue is a total winner,” the President said, citing recent incidents at the border that he believes have motivated support for more security. He also said the $5 billion would only be for a physical barrier and that “the number is larger for border security.”
The President’s reputation as a shrewd negotiator has allowed him to set sail on this bold and boisterous course.  Now it will be up to the democrats to decide if they are willing to attempt derailing him as they gear up for a 2020 challenge.

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.
