Trump Spanks Paul Ryan Over Birthright Citizenship, No Wonder He’s Retiring

Be better, Paul!

After President Donald Trump said he’d look for a way to end birthright citizenship (possibly via executive order), Speaker of the House Paul Ryan wasn’t on board.

“You obviously cannot do that. You cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order,” Ryan, who rarely breaks with the president, told WVLK radio. “We didn’t like it when Obama tried changing immigration laws via executive action, and obviously as conservatives, we believe in the Constitution.”

“I’m a believer in following the plain text of the Constitution, and I think in this case, the 14th Amendment’s pretty clear, and that would involve a very very lengthy Constitutional process,” Ryan said Tuesday. “I believe in interpreting the Constitution as its written, and that means you can’t do something like this via executive order.”

Check out Trump’s words for Paul:

Trump is right. Ryan’s focus should be on retaining the House.

Women from Mexico and many, many other nations come to America by any means necessary in order to give birth.

This give’s their children American citizenship by default.

What ends up happening is the American-born kids don’t get deported and often times neither do the mothers (or fathers).

It is a system of which plenty of Americans are not fond.

About that potential executive order to end birthright citizenship.

President Trump plans to sign an executive order that would remove the right to citizenship for babies of non-citizens and unauthorized immigrants born on U.S. soil, he said yesterday in an exclusive interview for “Axios on HBO,” a new four-part documentary news series debuting on HBO this Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT.

Why it matters: This would be the most dramatic move yet in Trump’s hard-line immigration campaign, this time targeting “anchor babies” and “chain migration.” And it will set off another standoff with the courts, as Trump’s power to do this through executive action is debatable, to say the least.

WATCH:

The problem with the EO is that Trump may run into trouble constitutionally.

Enter South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who plans to introduce legislation to make the process easier:

Now more than ever it is absolutely vital the GOP retains both chambers of Congress in November’s midterm elections.

Virginia Puts New Monthly Limits On Handguns

Published

on

The Bill of Rights, contained within the United States Constitution, speaks in clear, easy-to-understand English, that the federal government does not have the authority in any capacity to infringe upon the God-given right to bear arms. Scholars have debated what this amendment means for many, many years, which is ridiculous, because it’s spelled out for them in the text itself and in the context in which the amendment was written. People have the right to own guns and the government can’t interfere with that. Bingo. However, big government nanny-state folk are only interested in finding new and creative ways to place as many limits on this right as possible, because an unarmed people are a whole lot easier to control. The state of Virginia has now adopted some of the strictest gun control measures in the country after a judge shot down a bid to block a ridiculous one-handgun-a-month limit from taking effect. Here’s more from The Free Beacon: Virginia Democrats made gun control a top priority after taking control of both the state legislature and governor’s mansion in 2019 and quickly pushed through one of the most restrictive packages in the country. Residents in the commonwealth are now subject to universal background checks, red flag laws, and a monthly limit on how many handguns they can purchase. Gun-rights activists had attempted to block the July 1 implementation date of those measures in separate suits. A state judge rejected a request to temporarily block the one-gun-a-month law on Thursday. The same group of gun-rights activists requested a stay in a new suit against the universal background check law, but were unable to secure a hearing before the law took effect. Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), which is involved in both current lawsuits and considering…

Nearly 4.8M Jobs Added To Economy In June, Just Before Surge In New COVID-19 Infections

Published

on

President Trump has reason to celebrate this week as a new report from the Labor Department is stating that almost 4.8 million jobs have been added to the economy in June, just before the surge in new cases of coronavirus hit, dropping the unemployment rate to 11.1 percent. This is fantastic news that far surpasses what forecasters had expected. In fact, these numbers have set a brand new record. Unfortunately, much of this is clouded by the fact that there are now new cases of COVID-19 starting to hit states across the country. Here’s more on this report from The Washington Examiner: “Looking beyond the June employment data, worrisome signs have emerged in recent days regarding a pullback in store traffic and spending likely linked to the resurgence of COVID-19,” said Mark Hamrick, a senior economic analyst at Bankrate.com. “While the economy is widely thought to be rebounding now that we’ve quietly slipped into the third quarter, the strength and sustainability of the rebound remain at risk.” Perhaps most troubling, Thursday’s report showed a higher number, 2.8 million, of job losses described as permanent. In previous months of the pandemic, around 90% of job losses had been described as temporary, suggesting that the workers hoped to go back to their old jobs once the pandemic passed. Nearly two-fifths of the new jobs being added to the June report are in the leisure and hospitality industries, both of which had taken a massive beating from the lockdowns at the height of the pandemic. These jobs are still being threatened, however, due to the rise of new cases of this horrific virus that just doesn’t seem to want to go away. Employment in retail rose by 740,000 last month, after a gain of 372,000 in May and losses totaling 2.4 million in…
