Media’s Angry Response To President 
Trump’s Oval Office Speech Comes Up Short  
by Mollie Hemingway  
{} ~ A humanitarian and security crisis at the southern border must be addressed, President Donald Trump told the country last night in his first Oval Office address... His speech also addressed the flow of drugs and crime, the high rates of abuse associated with human trafficking, and the use of children as pawns to thwart laws protecting the U.S. border from illegal entry. “This is the tragic reality of illegal immigration on our southern border. This is the cycle of human suffering that I am determined to end,” Trump said, laying out a plan that includes drug-detection technology, increased border agents and immigration judges, $800 million in humanitarian assistance and medical support, legislative changes to ensure the safe return of children who enter the country illegally, and $5.7 billion for a “physical barrier” to help stop illegal entry. Speaker of the House Nancy Pulosi and Senate Minority Leader scumbag/clown-Chuck Schumer quickly responded to the address by saying there’s not really a crisis at the border. They told him that he should end the governmental shutdown, and said they could work on border security concerns in the months to come. While pundits like to discuss who looked good and who looked bad in last night’s televised addresses, it’s worth pausing in appreciation of the various political leaders for taking part in the debate over national security and the extent of the problem caused by porous borders. Sometimes debates need to take place behind closed doors, but when competing ideologies are on display, it serves as a healthy public education about important issues that affect citizens’ lives. The Democrats’ theme for the evening was “facts, not fear.” Many major media also adopted the same theme. The coordinated talking point began hours if not days before the speech even aired, with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota saying yesterday morning, “Fact-checkers are eating their Wheaties and getting extra rest since they will be working overtime tonight to separate fact from fiction on this border situation.”...
McConnell accuses Democrats 
of throwing 'partisan tantrum' over shutdown
by Samuel Chamberlain  
{} ~ Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., accused Democrats Tuesday of operating out of "political spite" by refusing to negotiate with President Trump on border security... and threatening to block the Senate from considering any legislation until the end of the partial  government shutdown. "Maybe the Democratic Party was for secure borders before they were against them," McConnell said. "Or maybe they're just making it up as they go along. Or maybe they are dead set on opposing this particular president on any issue, for any reason, just for the sake of opposing him." McConnell spoke on the Senate floor hours before Trump was to address the nation from the Oval Office about his long-promised border wall, which has been the key sticking point in negotiations that have gone on for close to three weeks. In his remarks, McConnell rattled off a list of prominent Democrats, including scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton, Barack scumbag/liar-nObama, loose lips-Joe Biden, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck scumbag/clown-Schumer who he said had previously backed border security legislation "with enthusiasm" in 2006. "Today, my friend the Democratic leader scumbag/clown-Schumer is proposing to add a Senate shutdown to the partial federal government shutdown and block even more of the people's business, all to avoid more of what he already voted for," said McConnell, who added "The  only things that have changed between then and now are the political winds and of course the occupant of the White House...
Media Are 'Part of the Mob That Wants 
to Take Down a Constitutionally-Elected President’
by Emily Ward  
{} ~ On his nationally syndicated radio talk show, “The Mark Levin Show,” on Monday night, host Mark Levin said the media in the United States “are part of the mob... that wants to take down a constitutionally-elected president,” referring to U.S. President Donald J. Trump. “Do you believe that these so-called reporters and anchors and hosts – do you believe that they have the country’s best interests at heart, the community, as they call it, best interests at heart?” Mark Levin asked his audience. “I don’t. I don’t believe they do at all. I believe they drive an agenda. I believe they are progressive ideologues, and I believe they are mouthpieces for the Democrat Party. Now, every now and then, they’ll ask some tough questions of a Democrat, just to prove their chops. But we know what they are. They’re part of the mob that wants to take down a constitutionally-elected president.”...
Fox News Host Judge Jeanine Pirro’s Epic 
Takedown of Newly Elected Democrat Rashida Tlaib
{} ~ What is the biggest complaint the left has with Donald Trump? If you cut through all of the smoke and mirrors, it boils down to the fact that they don’t like how mean he is on Twitter. That’s it... They complain about his policy, but judged by results, it’s the best policy we’ve seen since Ronald Reagan. Things the left claims to want are happening at a fast pace under Trump. More people than ever have health insurance, and average premiums went down for the first time since scumbag/liar-nObamacare was passed. We’re pulling our military presence from most of the Middle East. In fact, Trump has overall de-escalated our efforts to police the world in the way scumbag/liar-nObama promised and never delivered. These wins are to say nothing of the overwhelming economic success we’re seeing under Trump. The left hates Trump because he has a rough demeanor and a sometimes foul mouth. Their willful ignorance of the hypocrisy they display has not gone unnoticed. When they praise Representative Rashida Tlaib for swearing at Trump in a public forum, they’re not sticking it to the man. They’re behaving as Trump-like as they possibly can and cheering about it. The only difference is that Tlaib doesn’t have impressive policy to justify her words. Worse, Tlaib’s outburst shows that she is right in line with the rest of the Democrats. She’s threatening to impeach a President who has committed no crimes. That’s an abuse of power, and the Democrats are all about that. Judge Jeanine Pirro puts it in clear perspective in this video. Take a look.
Dems silent on returning cash from top donor 
after second man mysteriously found 
dead in his apartment
by Alana Goodman
{} ~ The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton campaign refuse to say whether they will return contributions from prominent donor Edward Buck... after another man was found dead in Buck’s West Hollywood apartment on Monday. This was the second man found dead of an apparent overdose at Buck’s home since July 2017, when the body of Gemmel Moore, a 26-year-old alleged sex worker, was discovered at the same apartment. Moore’s death was attributed to a methamphetamine overdose, and authorities declined to prosecute Buck, 64, saying there was not sufficient evidence of foul play. But several men stepped forward after the death and claimed Buck was a "monster" who had lured them and other homeless young black men to his apartment where he would drug them and forcibly inject them with methamphetamines, according to reports. Buck, a former European fashion model who made his fortune selling a delivery service business in Arizona, contributed over $90,000 to Democratic politicians between 2007 and 2016 and cultivated relationships with scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, California Gov. Jerry Brown, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti...
Did Bolton Really Contradict Trump About Syria?
by Nate Jackson:  President Donald Trump ruffled a lot of feathers on both sides of the political aisle with his seemingly off-the-cuff December announcement that U.S. troops would soon be departing Syria. There are good arguments on both sides of the debate. Yet in typical Trump fashion, his endgame is less than clear, especially now that National Security Advisor John Bolton has apparently contradicted him.

             “There are objectives that we want to accomplish that condition the withdrawal,” Bolton said Sunday. The U.S. withdrawal from northeastern Syria will occur, Bolton added, “in a way that makes sure that ISIS is defeated and is not able to revive itself and to become a threat again; and to make sure that the defense of Israel and our other friends in the region is absolutely assured; and to take care of those who fought with us against ISIS and other terrorist groups.
               That does sound quite a bit different from Trump’s declaration last month: “After historic victories against ISIS, it’s time to bring our great young people home! We have won against ISIS.” At the same time, Trump’s declaration wasn’t based on a timeline but results. “We won’t be finally pulled out until ISIS is gone,” Trump said Sunday. We suppose there’s a difference between defeated and gone. And he tweeted Monday, “No different from my original statements, we will be leaving at a proper pace while at the same time continuing to fight ISIS and doing all else that is prudent and necessary!
               Results are what Bolton pointed to as well. Indeed, he explained, “Timetables or the timing of the withdrawal occurs as a result of the fulfillment of the conditions and the establishment of the circumstances that we want to see. It’s not the establishment of an arbitrary point for the withdrawal to take place as President scumbag/liar-nObama did in the Afghan situation. … The timetable flows from the policy decisions that we need to implement.
               No doubt Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had some feedback about a total U.S. pullout, as did our Kurdish allies, whom our Turkish “allies” wish to wipe out.
               So what it comes down to is that, once again, Trump used overstatements and hyperbole because he wanted to make a splash and bring attention to an issue, and then he (and White House officials) walked that back to a more reasonable position that, arguably, Trump had always aimed for. In this case, House Democrats were/are going to pull a Vietnam on Syria — snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory by defunding the efforts and then blaming the president. Trump’s gambit backed Dems into publicly supporting continuing efforts in Syria, which he can then point to when they don’t want to fund it.
               This seems to be a good example of taking Trump seriously but not literally.
               The Resurgent’s Steve Berman aptly sums it up: “The reality is that Syria is a mess — a Gordian knot of alliances, long-simmering feuds, ancient hatreds, and horrific violence. It’s a place where nobody is truly your friend, and everyone is potentially your enemy, and this goes triple for the United States. Trump’s instincts to get out of Syria are not entirely wrong. … But our quick departure also has consequences that hurt American interests. There’s no good answer.”  ~The Patriot Post

YUP: President Trump Signs Great And Beautiful Trump Border Wall During Tour In San Diego

Embedded video

President Donald Trump visited the San Diego border on Wednesday to show off a newly constructed portion of the wall after a fundraising trip in California.

“It’s an amazing project,” Trump said, pointing to the 30-foot high barrier constructed with steel and concrete, noting that it also went six feet underground.

“If you think you’re going to cut it with a blow torch, that doesn’t work, because you hit the concrete, and then if you think you’re going to go through the concrete, that doesn’t work because we have very powerful rebar inside,” Trump said.

The president traveled via motorcade after a fundraiser to Otay Mesa, a community outside San Diego on the United States -Mexico border to review the latest constructed physical barrier.

He pointed out the new wall structure to the press, which was 24 miles of primary and secondary wall at the border.

“We have it covered underground, we have it covered overground,” Trump said.

The president was joined by acting Department of Homeland security Kevin McAllen and several other border security officials.

He said that over 44,000 bollard panels had been set up for the wall, which was then filled with concrete and rebar.

Trump admitted that he envisioned a solid concrete wall when he campaigned for president, but he was told by border officials that they preferred a wall constructed by concrete-filled bollards so they could see through it.

“It’s hardened concrete, very powerful concrete,” Trump said, pointing to the structure.

He added that the steel wall was designed to retain heat, making it harder to climb, plus having an anti-climbing system at the top.

“You can fry an egg on that wall,” he said. The president also acknowledged to reporters that he wanted the wall to be painted black and have spikes but said it was cheaper to let it remain naturally rust-colored.

“We can paint it later,” he said.

The president discussed his growing understanding of border barriers, noting that the Southern border would not need much more than 500 miles of wall to secure the border. He cited the existence of natural mountain and river barriers that prevented criminals from crossing. He did not rule out building additional barriers in the future but said it would depend on whether it was needed.

One border patrol agent spoke about the importance of the border wall to all of the agents, thanking the president for pushing forward on construction.

Trump said he met with Border Patrol prior to constructing the wall, picking the most effective structures to protect the border.

One border security official scoffed at the idea that the wall was a “vanity” project for the president.

“There’s a false narrative out there that this wall is the president’s vanity wall,” he said. “I’m here to tell you right now that that is false.”

He thanked Trump for listening to border patrol agents during the planning and construction process.

“You listened to the agents and you gave them exactly what they asked for,” he said.

One official with Trump confirmed that the structure was funded with regular Congressional appropriations in the FY 2017 and FY 2018 and that that the new wall replaced an inferior structure.

Trump said that he still considered the situation on the border a national emergency, but as more wall went up he could withdraw military forces.

“I hope you’re impressed,” he told reporters as he took questions about the project.

One worker told Trump of a tradition of workers signing the wall if they worked on the wall.

“I’ll sign it,” Trump said, and went to the wall and signed the steel barrier with a marker before encouraging other officials present to do the same.
