Blunt, as a Missourian, I will actively campaign in support of any primary opponent for your re-election next time, if we can not eliminate you by term limitation. I might as well have voted for a Democrat.
Honestly, by action alone, now and in the past, been difficult to tell whether Collins, Murkowski and Alexander weren’t Democrats anyway, if I didn’t know better. They sure seem to have a difficult time deciding which way to go. Rubio just needs to be combative for attention. Romney, he is a NEVER TRUMPSTER, has no interest in doing what is right for the American people. Rand Paul just being Rand Paul.
Excuse: Not wanting to set a precedent for future presidents to declare a national emergency. BS……..the President has a Constitutional right. This declaration by Trump is exactly the reason he has this option before him, and it is to protect America. There have been many national emergencies declared by past presidents for issues/events/threats in to aid other nations. It is time one is declared, when greatly needed for the purpose of defending/protecting our own nation as it is intended.
Listening to these legislators who state they are against Trump’s declaration of a national emergency on the U.S./Mexican border is at a massively high level of hypocrisy and stupidity. The Democrats and a few Republicans don’t believe the flow of illegals, drugs human trafficking, and criminal gangs and disease are a threat to our nation. These fruitcakes believe Trump is abusing the constitution declaring such an emergency to use funds to build the border wall. They totally disregard that Obama declared a number of national emergencies, to get his way, and none of these people who are barking at Trump never so much as sneezed.
Lets not forget many of these elected jackassery officials once voted for funds supporting building a border wall in the past. Now that Trump is president, they’ve had a change of heart. Possibilities are: 1) They either voted for it in the past “just for looks” when they were truly against it, because they knew it wouldn’t get built (they knew the then president would not pursue it); which is deceit (they lied). 2) They really do favor building the wall, just not under Trump, they know “Trump would get it done” and they don’t want THIS president to be successful at anything (more deceit). 3) They don’t want the wall, so illegals can enter our nation vote fraudulently (or they’ll pass legislation allowing illegals to vote; since they, the Democrats don’t understand the definition of “ILLEGAL”.
All scenarios are deceit/lying period. That is your Democratic (Liberal/Socialist) Party today. Yes today, its been bad for a long time, it’s just gotten so much worse.
Well, well, well….Mexico’s drug cartels can rest easy now. The Mexican President has ended the military war on drugs. So, their life threatening drugs can be manufactured and distributed much easier now.
The Mexican/U.S. border will now be a greater hot spot for drug movement and bad boy traffic. Why not just set up Meth labs tents in Tijuana? Attempts to move drugs across the border will escalate dramatically, become more intense.
Trump will surely jump on this, that the need for The Wall just rose……..greatly!
Watch the videos below, overwhelming number of young men climbing the border wall. Very few women and children in sight! Defense Secretary Mattis at the border now, watching. The Caravan scouts are here!
Trump could be a genius; in a very silent (not so silent) kind of way. He doesn’t give you all the details of who, what, when ……..but very vocal about where; like on the border. Suddenly though, things begin to happen (THINGS BEGIN TO HAPPEN). When was the last time we had a president that “made things happen”. Okay, I know what you’re thinking, they aren’t always positive, or don’t seem to be to start. Will it can be difficult to tell when you have a media that wants “everything Trump to be negative or unsuccessful”. That’s a different story, an obvious one for another moment, just not now, sort of!
About that Trump Wall on the Mexican/U.S. border: Taking a line from the famous Field of Dreams quote: “Build it, they will come!” Yes, they will come, they will most definitely come to paraphrase. Immigrants, most of which will be illegals, will find their way to the wall out of curiosity and the greater challenge, getting over, under or through. Oh yes, the wall will most definitely attract people, from both sides. SO!
Lets take advantage of it, build it into a positive, an asset if you will! Aside from keeping ILLEGALS out, for the most part, here are some ideas!
Tourists attraction: No, it isn’t the Great Wall of China, but ………… people will come, they’ll keep coming if there is something to see, more than just a WALL. More will come, once word is out; if advertised its more than just a wall. There are generations, centuries of history along the Mexican/U.S. Border. Why not use the wall to tell the stories, history lessons etched on the wall, possibly museums at historic sites, and the names of those who made that history. Its educational! Towers (glassed-in and guarded of course) of scenic views! It all creates:
Business opportunities: Concessions, even restaurants, people get hungry and thirsty. I know most of the money is on the U.S. side, most of the opportunities. JOBS! Its perfect! They built Vegas in a desert. It’s all possible. Souvenir shops! Hotels, motels, Trump Hotels/resorts? You don’t think he hasn’t thought of this! He is a businessman!
I don’t like ugly graffiti, but the wall would be a HUUUGGGEE canvas for artist! It would bigly!
What we take advantage of on the U.S. side, Mexico could take advantage of on the southern side. South & Central Americans thinking they are immigrating, will stop at the wall, still looking for passage to the U.S. Maybe they find something at the wall, an opportunity. What is said, written (etched in stone) on one side can be said, written (etched in stone) on the other. EACH WITH THEIR OWN PERSPECTIVE, THEIR OWN VIEW OF HISTORY, THE STORY AND HOW IT WAS TOLD.
This doesn’t have to be fantasy, it can happen. We need to turn necessities into assets, solutions! Co-existing, peaceful solutions. We just need to stop looking at everything in a negative way!
We have creative people on both sides to make it happen! Bigly! Make America and Mexico great again! I can just hear the liberal snowflakes now!! 🙂
