Why this story isn’t front page news is more than enough proof that Democrats have the media in their back pocket.
You’ll understand why in 3…
From Washington Times:
A “violent mob” of illegal immigrants tried to ring in the new year by rushing the border in California, and Border Patrol agents fired tear gas at them to repel the incursion, Homeland Security officials said Tuesday.
About 150 people were involved in the attempt to climb over and burrow under a section of border fence in San Diego on New Year’s Eve night. After they were blocked, one group grew more combative, firing rocks over the border to try to hit agents.
Homeland Security spokeswoman Katie Waldman: “Once again we have had a violent mob of migrants attempt to enter the United States illegally by attacking our agents with projectiles. The agents involved should be applauded for handling the situation with no reported injuries to the attackers.“
How ridiculous is that?
Thank goodness border patrol was there to fight off the lawbreakers, huh?
Speaking of poor MSM coverage, MSNBC, for example, isn’t even trying anymore. Whatever they can do to trash President Trump, they’ll do.
Here’s what host Lawrence O’Donnell has to say about border patrol:
“They destroy water bottles that are left in the desert by Samaritans that are doing what Donald Trump’s bible tells them to do.“
The video shown by O’Donnell is from 2011 and published in 2013.
Who was president during that time?
MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid agrees with guest Elie Mystal.
The way to “get” President Donald Trump is to go after his children.
ELIE MYSTAL: “Do you remember in ‘The Firm,’ how Tom Cruise brings down the entire mob on overbilling? In these reports, what we have is Ivanka Trump, as part of the Trump organization, overbilling the inaugural committee. That could be it right there. What we now have — this is the first time — look, we’ve talked a lot about Don Jr., we know now he was at the Trump Tower meeting, we talked a lot about Eric, because he seems to be Fredo.”
“This is the first time that we have Ivanka—which is like the only kid he likes—in the crosshairs.She apparently, according to these reports, was involved with overcharging the inaugural committee, and somebody had to tell her: this is going to look bad when we get audited. For a long time I thought that the only way we are really going to get to Trump is if you go after his kids. If you put the kids in legal peril, that’s the only thing that’s going to shock him out of his lying, deceitful, cocoon. And this could be the way to do it.“
JOY REID: “There is this finding that people — we’re going to talk about this later in the show — that you can’t indict a sitting President. But it doesn’t say anything about a sitting President’s daughter.“
President Trump made it clear on New Year’s Eve. The wall, in some form or another, is coming.
45 is standing firm.
From Daily Wire:
On Monday evening, President Trump spoke with Fox News’ “All American New Year” co-host Pete Hegseth via telephone. During the exchange, the president indicated that he will not back away from his demand for billions of dollars in border wall funding.
HEGSETH: “You stayed in Washington, D.C. through Christmas, through New Year’s. We’ve seen Nancy Pelosi in Hawaii; Democrats not willing to come back. A lot of your supporters, to be honest Mr. President, are hoping that you will stand firm on that five billion dollar mark, or something big for the wall. Are you willing to continue the shutdown if that money does not come?“
TRUMP: “Well, we are. We have no choice. We have to have border security, and a wall is part of border security. You know, I hear so much about “the wall is old fashioned.” No, the wall is not old fashioned, the wall is 100% foolproof. You look at a wheel – well, I guess they’d say the wheel is old fashioned, but it’s been around for a long time. The wall is the only way to do it, and technology … are just the bells and whistles on the wall. If you don’t have the wall, you’re gonna have people coming in. And my border patrol people, they do a fantastic job, but, you know, they need the backup of the wall – and they’re the ones that want it more than anybody, Pete.“
HEGSETH: “So, how far are you willing to go, Mr. President? When do you anticipate talks with Chuck and Nancy, as you say, sir?“
TRUMP: “Well, I assume when they get back. I’m in Washington. I’m ready, willing, and able. I’m in the White House. I’m ready to go. They can come over right now. They could have come over any time. I spent Christmas in the White House, I spent New Year’s eve now in the White House, and I’m here. I’m ready to go. It’s very important. A lot of people are looking to get their paycheck, and so I’m ready to go anytime they want. No, we are not giving up. We have to have border security, and the wall is a big part of border security – the biggest part.“
