Once Again Sing the Chorus Build the Wall Build the Wall Build the Wall April 3, 2018

In the last presidential election we had the choice between the last nail in our coffin and a chance.  We now have a chance.  America’s place on the world stage is being clarified by President Trump.  But we need to keep things in perspective.

We need to keep our eye on the prize.  What good does it do to gain the world if we lose the homeland?  It was mainly domestic issues that drove everyone to the polls to prevent Hillary’s coronation.  We want America back.  We want the shining city on a hill back not the shabby globalist collective Obama, Hillary and the rest of the Progressives have been shoving down our throat.

We need to save our country from disappearing beneath the waves of the uninvited.  And to have any chance of doing that we need to have a country left to save not just a place with open borders and a sign that says, “No admission fee and everything’s free.”

The clock is ticking.  The courts have shown they will do everything they can to stop our president from enforcing sanity or even the law to stop the invasion.  Congress has shown they will spend money on anything except border security.

Stop the migration invasion!  Secure the border!  No amnesty!

Bring our troops home from around the world and let them make us secure.  Build the wall, build the wall, build the wall.

Those who say we cannot build a wall need to take a look at the border between North and South Korea.  It may not be a smaller version of the Great Wall but it’s effective.  Or look at the wall Israel built on their border with the Palestinian Authority.  If these secure borders can be built, guarded, and maintained why can’t we do the same thing on our Southern border?

Bring our troops home from Korea.  Why should they be there as a trip wire?  Their deaths are meant to do nothing else but guarantee that we’ll be involved in the next war.  Let South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan deal with the suicidal Rocket Man.  Their populations and economies are much larger than the gulag which is North Korea.

Bring our troops home from Germany.  Lately the Germans and French seem friendlier to Russia than they do to us so who are we protecting them from?  Themselves?

Why should we spend billions each year to maintain these garrison troops left over from wars fought more than a half century ago.  Instead of spending that money overseas post the troops to our southern border and spend that money in our own country.

DACA is a Trojan horse.  Give amnesty to anyone and you’ll end up giving it to everyone.  The minute it becomes law the ACLU, CAIR, LA Raza and all the other America Last front groups will file challenges to the law’s supposedly iron-clad limitations.  These inevitable law suits will give liberal activist judges the opportunity to prop the door open.  They’ll argue, “Why is it fair that some get citizenship and others don’t?”  If the Trump Administration dares to stand against these attempts to stretch a limited amnesty into a come-one-come-all free-for-all the Ninth Circuit will get the opportunity to slap them down and knock the door off its hinges.

Besides, anyone apprehended by ICE after DACA will say they were brought here as a child and the courts will dutifully certify them as unaccompanied minors no matter how old they are.

President Trump, for standing up to the globalists you are to be commended.  Out here in fly-over country most are proud to hear you speak for us bravely and forthrightly.  Signing the latest Democrat omnibus obscenity has caused major ripples out here in fly-over country.  DACA would have pulled the plug.

Here’s an election strategy that will appeal to the Deplorables.  When the next Porkulous spending bill comes up right before the midterm election veto it, call the electioneering plutocrats back into session and run against a Congress that is thwarting the agenda you were elected to implement, demand full funding for the wall.  Better yet demand a 10% tax on money transfers to foreign countries and use that money to build the wall, or use the seized assets of the Mexican drug lords to build the wall.  Whatever you do build the wall build the wall, build the wall.

If you complete your reform of the Obamacare health insurance debacle, continue your reformation of the byzantine tax codes, and maintain your excellent record of cutting regulations you’ll go down as one of the greatest presidents in our history.  However, when a patient is hemorrhaging the first thing to do is stop the bleeding.  So first of all as our Commander-in-Chief, the one charged with protecting the nation, build the wall build the wall, build the wall.  Few people know the name of Marcus Aurelius.  Most people know the name of Hadrian build the wall build the wall, build the wall.

Problem Solved March 26, 2018

As suggested numerous time in these dispatches there is a way to build the wall by making an end run around the Democrats who are dedicated to open borders.

President Trump is the Commander-in-Chief of the military.  There can be no doubt about that.  Article II Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution, the Commander in Chief clause, states that “the President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States.”  It can’t get much clearer than that.

Mr. President use some of that windfall money you got for the military those spendthrifts in Congress forced down your throat to build the wall.

The Army Corps of Engineers can build thousands of miles of levees, dams, artificial lakes, and all sorts of other things.  They have all the equipment needed to build a wall.  They have all the expertise needed to build a wall.  And they follow you orders.  So, order them to build the wall.

Problem solved.

Random Thoughts III March 21, 2018

Why would someone be upset about deporting children but not upset about aborting them?

Democrats want DACA.  Trump offers DACA but they can’t vote for 12 years.  Democrats turn that down.  Does that show what they really want?

In California they can make plastic straws illegal but they can’t seem to make illegals illegal.

Socialism: Policies so good they have to be mandatory.

Mark Zuckerberg calls President Trump a fascist as he deletes posts, pages, and accounts of people he disagrees with.

The same people who call Preside4nt Trump a fascist are the same ones begging him to take everyone’s guns away…go figure.

Jay-Z: stabbed his own producer, punched his sister-in-law in the face on an elevator, and shoots his own brother.  He now says he is offended because he doesn’t like President Trump’s tone.

Two things are very expensive in international affairs: threats when they fail and promises when they succeed.

President Kennedy put men on the moon.  President Obama put men in the ladies room.

What criminals want most is a disarmed victim.

Why the study of History is exciting:

  • If we learn how we got here we can better understand here.
  • If we learn how the past became the present we can better anticipate the future.
  • It gives us the opportunity to learn from the mistakes of others.
  • It isn’t all about memorizing names and dates to regurgitate on an exam. It is about investigating the lives of people just like us who lived in different times and in what were essentially different worlds.
  • Being a student of History is in many ways like being a time traveling detective.

The Flat Earth Society has members all around the globe.

The more Trump is investigated the more crimes involving prominent Democrats are exposed.

Recently a demonstrator was seen holding a sign that said, “If Trump isn’t Hitler than I’m a moron!”  Enough said?

If guns kill people then I guess pencils misspell words, spoons make people fat, and cars make people drive drunk.

Smooth seas never made a good sailor.

The Left’s answer to homicidal maniacs attacking innocent people is to disarm innocent people.

Wouldn’t it be great if the Masters of the Universe in Washington were as interested in spending control as they are in gun control?

When were young our grandparents try to tell us about their lives and we’re bored because it doesn’t interest us.  Later we wish we would have written it all down.  Then when we’re old we’re disappointed when our grandchildren couldn’t care less about the life we’ve lived…it was all so long ago.  That is part of the circle of life.  Very few people know the names of all eight of their great grandparents.  Few know even the names of three.  In a generation or two, at most three for most of us even our names will be forgotten.  All things in life will pass.  Only those things done in Christ will last.

From the “He Said What?” Department:

“Today we need a nation of minute men; citizens who are not only prepared to take up arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as a basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.”  President Kennedy from his message: Those Participating in Roosevelt Day Commemoration, 29 January 1961.  This was before we went through the looking glass.

The Maryland shooter of 3-20 was 17 years old.  He used a 9mm Glock.  According to Maryland law you must be 21 years old to purchase a hand gun.  Criminals don’t follow laws….that’s what makes them criminals.  And he was stopped by one man with his own gun.  No CNN, no vigils, no walkouts…the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media apparently didn’t notice.

Undocumented isn’t a race, it’s a criminal.  So why is someone a racist if they see a problem with twenty million + criminals being allowed to walk around, work, and demonstrate with immunity?

In Stockton, California during walkouts for gun violence students were arrested on charges of battery, vandalizing vehicles, and assaulting police offi8cers.  Doesn’t this prove the point that it isn’t the gun that’s the problem it’s the moral values and ethics of the people who commit the crimes?

Hillary needs a device around her neck with a button for, “Help I’ve fallen and I can’t quit getting back up.”

Avoid the Amnesty Trap January 10, 2018

This is a plea to President Trump to stand by his promises and avoid the amnesty trap that the Progressives are trying to lure him into.

Instead lead the congressional forces of those who want to make America great again.  Use every tool, every power you have to enact the fo0llowing:

  1. Ending chain migration and the visa lottery
  2. Mandating employer use of E-Verify
  3. Construction of a southern border wall
  4. Interior enforcement of immigration law.

Rarely do things that don’t make sense on a personal level suddenly make sense on a national level.

Look at preemptive war.  If hitting someone back first doesn’t make sense in the neighborhood how can it shine like a beacon of sanity in the councils of state?

Think about a family dinner party.  You invite your family, maybe a few friends, you plan the menu, cook the meal and them when you serve it people you don’t know, who weren’t invited and many of whom don’t even like you crowd in at the table.  Does it make sense to just act like this is acceptable?  When the uninvited begin taking food away from your own children would you be hateful, a bigot, a racist if you asked them to leave?

Why does it make sense to lock our homes at night, to have security systems, to have a fence around the White House but to leave the borders of our homeland unguarded?

President Trump, your enemies are attempting to get you to back amnesty for the so-called Dreamers.  They are doing this in an effort to divorce you from your base.  They have got to make the millions who support you turn their backs for their plot to impeach you to succeed.

You seem to be in tune with those of us out here in fly-over country.  Read our lips, “NO AMNESTY!”

Any amnesty bill passed will be used by the Progressives to bring in more and more and more.  The courts will block any restrictions and stretch the open door.  These undocumented democrats will eventually bring in millions of mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, cousins and third cousins twice removed.  Passing a DACA amnesty will be the breaking point of no return.

Save yourself.  Save us all from drowning in a sea of the other.  America can’t be great again if America is going to slip beneath the waves of a migration tsunami.

America already accepts more refugees than the rest of the world combined.  We have more legal immigration than any other nation.  We have tens f millions of illegal immigrants.  We are one of only 30 nations out of more than 190 that allow birthright citizenship.  Anchor babies (just think about what that name implies) and birth tourism flies in the face of reason.

Instead of a Progressive sponsored Trojan horse meant to import millions of democrat voters actively work to pass the RAISE Act.  I will recommend this course of action by quoting you,

For decades, the United States was operated and has operated a very low-skilled immigration system, issuing record numbers of Green Cards to low-wage immigrants. This policy has placed substantial pressure on American workers, taxpayers and community resources. Among those hit the hardest in recent years have been immigrants and, very importantly, minority workers competing for jobs against brand-new arrivals. And it has not been fair to our people, to our citizens, to our workers.

The RAISE Act ends chain migration, and replaces our low-skilled system with a new points-based system for receiving a Green Card. This competitive application process will favor applicants who can speak English, financially support themselves and their families, and demonstrate skills that will contribute to our economy.

Personally I believe we need a moratorium on immigration for ten years.  That would give us the breathing space to clear out the illegals and assimilate the legal.

Don’t let McConnell and Ryan lead you down the primrose path.  Neither of them have your best interest at heart.

Obama called us clingers.  Hillary called us despicable.  The terrorists call us infidels.  You called us Americans.  We took that and you to heart.  We believe your promises especially your promise to end the migration invasion.  Stand by that promise.  It is fundamental in the quest to make America great again and don’t fall into the amnesty trap.

BUILD THE WALL!  BUILD THE WALL!  BUILD THE WALL!

How?  Put a 5% surcharge on all wire transfers of money overseas and let the illegals pay for the wall.  However you do it Mr. President … do it.  This is what got you elected.

How?  You are the Commander-in-Chief.  Order the United States Naval Construction Battalions, better known as the Seabees and the Army Corps of Engineers to build the wall.  They are some of the best builders in the world.  They are trained and equipped to build anything.  They are already fully funded.  Instead of building schools, hospitals, and gas stations in Afghanistan for the Taliban to burn down have them build the wall.

Don’t listen to people who were against you from day one and are still against you now. All they want is cheap labor, democrat votes, and to divorce you from your base.

Listen instead to those who supported you at the ballot box and who support you still. Protect our homes, families, and jobs by giving us a level playing field.  End the migration invasion and make America great again.

BUILD THE WALL!  BUILD THE WALL!  BUILD THE WALL!

Just one last thing to think about Mr. President; don’t let amnesty become your “Read my Lips” moment.

President Trump’s speech before the UN was interesting in many ways.

He put the multinational globalists on official notice that he has their number and as far as he’s concerned their number is up.  He let the UN bureaucrats know that their red tape parades have got to be reined in.  He called socialism what it is, a failure.  He held up capitalism as the means for raising people out of poverty and ignorance.  He made the case for sovereignty both national, personal, and individual freedom.  He pointed out that the US carries a disproportionate load for the support of the UN and that this has got to change or they might be looking for spare change if America cuts its funding for what has become an anti-American debating society.  In other words, he let the world know that as far as his administration is concerned from now on it’s going to be America First.

He laid out some markers in foreign affairs for North Korea, Syria, Iran and Venezuela.  He avoided platitudes and spoke bluntly of his thoughts about some of the disastrous deals made by previous administrations that empowered and inspired our enemies just as they discouraged our allies.  He let everyone know he felt free to abort or amend these deals with American interests in mind this time.

The first speech at the UN is a right-of-passage for all new presidents.  President Trump speaking to a room full of collectivist socialists pointed out such realities as the problem in Venezuela isn’t that socialism hasn’t been properly implemented the problem is that it’s been implemented at all.  He was forthright and presented a good argument that freedom and capitalism is a superior system to coercion and socialism.  For all this we should celebrate and give thanks that President Trump won in November 2016.

In the last election we had the choice between the last nail in our coffin and a chance.  We now have a chance.  America’s place on the world stage is being clarified by President Trump.  But we need to keep things in perspective.

We need to keep our eye on the prize.  What good will it do to gain the world if we lose the homeland?  It was mainly domestic issues that drove everyone to the polls to prevent Hillary’s coronation.  We want America back not the globalist collective the Progressives have been shoving down our throat.

Bring our troops home from Germany.  Lately the Germans and French seem friendlier to Russia than they do to us so who are we protecting them from?  Themselves?

Why should we spend billions each year to maintain these garrison troops left over from wars fought more than a half century ago.  Instead of spending that money overseas post the troops to our southern border and spend that money in our own country.

DACA is a Trojan horse.  Give amnesty to anyone and you’ll end up giving it to everyone.  The minute it becomes law the ACLU, CAIR, LA Raza and all the other America Last front groups will file challenges to the law’s supposedly iron-clad limitations.  These inevitable law suits will give liberal activist judges the opportunity to prop the door open.  They’ll argue, “Why is it fair that some get citizenship and others don’t?”  If the Trump Administration dares to stand against these attempts to stretch a limited amnesty into a come-one-come-all free-for-all the Ninth Circuit will get the opportunity to slap them down and knock the door off its hinges.

President Trump, for standing up to the globalists in their lair you are to be commended.  Out here in fly-over country most are proud to hear you speak for us bravely and forthrightly to these representatives of demagogues and dictators.

But please, keep your eye on the prize.  If you reform the Obamacare health insurance debacle, reform taxes, and cut regulations you’ll go down as one of the greatest presidents in our history.  However, when a patient is hemorrhaging the first thing to do is stop the bleeding.  So first of all as our Commander-in-Chief, the one charged with protecting the nation, build the wall build the wall, build the wall.

BUILD THE WALL April 28, 2017

The Democrats are bluffing.  The last thing they want is to do is go on the record that they would rather shut down the government than pay for a border wall.  The next to the last thing they want is to go on record with a vote against the wall.  They know that to do either of these things would bring them no votes just more people outraged over them continuing to choose illegal immigrants over citizens.

Have the fight.  Call the vote.  Don’t follow Ryan in funding Planned Parenthood while refusing to fund the wall.  Don’t throw us under the bus for political expediency.

Obamacare is still here.  China isn’t a currency manipulator.  NATO is all right.  Intervention in foreign wars and military confrontations seem to be the order of the day.  Hopefully we won’t be singing with the WHO, “The new boss is the same as the old boss.”

People voted for hope and change and got a totally transformed America.  We voted for America First.  What are we going to get?

I have supported Donald Trump from early on and I’m not giving up on him yet.  But come on backing down from a fight about the wall is enough to shake the faith of a Trumpist Monk.

The Republicans control both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue.  This is what they have been telling us for years that they needed to advance the America First Agenda.  However, the RINO contingent has reached across the aisles to block what should have been a cake walk back to reality.

Doesn’t the President know that caving on the wall will be a deal breaker?  Forget about expending treasure and blood to defend South Korea and spend some political capital to defend America.  BUILD THE WALL.  Let the Democrats go into the next elections trying to defend why they think it’s better to have open borders that bring in millions of people to compete with citizens for jobs.  BUILD THE WALL.  Let them defend why it isn’t important to stop the flow of Heroin and other drugs into our country.  BUILD THE WALL.

Mr. President you are the Commander-in-Chief.  Building the wall is a national security issue.  BUILD THE WALL.  Use some of the Defense budget to defend America.  BUILD THE WALL.  Use the money seized from drug dealers.   BUILD THE WALL.   Put a surcharge on international wire transfers and dedicate the money to building the wall.  BUILD THE WALL.  Impose an emergency 5% surcharge on all goods coming in from Mexico and use the money to build the wall.  BUILD THE WALL.  At least make some proposals for how to fund the wall. BUILD THE WALL.   Sponsor some laws that provide funding for the wall.  BUILD THE WALL.

Don’t cave.  BUILD THE WALL.  Stand strong and those who came up off the couch to vote will stay standing alongside you.  BUILD THE WALL.  If you cave on the wall the Republicans will lose control of the house in 2018 and your impeachment hearings will start in 2019. BUILD THE WALL.

Don’t throw away the miracle win to beat all miracle wins because the Democrats are threatening to shut down the government.  BUILD THE WALL.  Let the doors swing shut on the bloated bureaucratic regulation machine and see who blinks first.  BUILD THE WALL.

BUILD THE WALL.    BUILD THE WALL.    BUILD THE WALL.

BUILD THE WALL and protect America.  BUILD THE WALL and secure your legacy.  BUILD THE WALL and cement a coalition that will ensure you re-election in 2020.  BUILD THE WALL and make America Great Again.

BUILD THE WALL.    BUILD THE WALL.    BUILD THE WALL.
