When Democrats embraced the 
'Southern Border Fencing Strategy'
by Byron York
{washingtonexaminer.com} ~ In 2006 Congress passed the Secure Fence Act, which mandated the construction of multilayer pedestrian fencing along about 600 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border... It passed with big, bipartisan majorities: 283 votes in the House and 80 in the Senate. Some top Democrats who are still in the Senate today supported the fence: Chuck scumbag/clown-Schumer, Dianne Fein-stein, scumbag-Ron Wyden, scumbag-Debbie Stabenow, and scumbag-Sherrod Brown. Just the next year, Congress made clear it didn't really mean what it said. The new law was amended to make fence building optional. In 2013, Congress got back into the fence game. The Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform bill included something called the "Southern Border Fencing Strategy." It called for 700 miles of at least single-layer pedestrian fencing along the border. It wasn't a standalone measure; the fence was to be part of a broader package of border security measures alongside provisions that would create a process by which the nation's 11 million illegal immigrants would ultimately gain a path to citizenship. With citizenship in the deal — even citizenship that would take a decade to achieve in some cases — Democrats were fully on board for a border barrier. The Gang of Eight bill passed in the Senate with 68 votes, including unanimous Democratic support. Name any Democrat who is in the Senate today who was there for that 2013 vote — scumbag/clown-Schumer, scumbag-Durbin, Murray, Baldwin, Bennet, Blumenthal, Brown, Cantwell, Cardin, Casey, Coons, Fein-stein, Gillibrand, scumbag-Hirono, scumbag-Kaine, Klobuchar, Leahy, Manchin, scumbag-Menendez, Merkley, Murphy, Reed, commie-Sanders, Shaheen, Stabenow, Tester, Warner, dinky-Warren, Whitehouse, scumbag-Wyden — name any, and they voted for the bill that included the Southern Border Fencing Strategy...  https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/columnists/byron-york-wh...

GOP Sen. Scott: Pulosi’s Speakership ‘Seems 
to Be in Balance Against Border Security
by Ian Hanchett
{breitbart.com} ~ On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Outnumbered Overtime,” Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) stated that negotiations to end the government shutdown are stuck in place... Because House Democratic Leader Nancy Pulosi’s (D-CA) bid to be speaker is in jeopardy and “her speakership seems to be in balance against border security.” Scott responded to a question on the prospect of the shutdown extending into January by saying, “Well, this is, without any question, a Pulosi problem. There’s no question that her speakership seems to be in balance against border security. … Some would say that it gets easier after that problem is resolved on January the 3rd. The truth of the matter is, we should not have that conversation whatsoever.”He later added, “Today, we find ourselves at a standstill. Because Pulosi’s speakership is in peril.”  https://www.breitbart.com/video/2018/12/25/gop-sen-scott-pelosis-sp...

President Trump, the Shutdown, and 2020
by Elad Hakim
{americanthinker.com} ~ Republicans should feel a great sense of pride. When President Trump was elected, he made a promise to build a wall to protect Americans and to prevent people from entering the country illegally... Two years later, despite the Democrats’ continued refusal to adequately fund the wall and a subsequent partial-government shutdown, the President has stood strong in his demand for adequate funding. This could help his re-election bid in 2020. Many of Trump’s most ardent supporters expect a wall. For those conservatives, Trump’s stance on immigration was a huge selling point during the presidential election. According to FoxNews, “Trump faced mounting pressure from immigration-minded conservatives to dig in on his demand for $5 billion to fund a border wall, a signature campaign promise -- before Democrats take over the House in January.” According to Dan Bongino, public support for the border wall has reached an all-time high. As Bongino pointed out, a new Quinnipiac poll of 1,147 voters found that 43% now support a border wall and 54% oppose it. In August, support was at 38%, thereby reflecting a five-point jump in a relatively short period of time. More importantly for the president, 86% of Republicans and 47% of Independents support building the wall, while 90% of Democrats oppose it.  Despite the increasing support for the wall, a recent article in The Hill stated that the current government shutdown could hurt Republicans and provide an opportunity for Democrats. More particularly, according to Douglas Schoen, the Democrats sought a bipartisan solution to the border wall/immigration issue and did not ask for the shutdown. In addition, the American public wants leadership that gets things done, not one that shuts down the government. Therefore, if Democrats are able to broker a deal once they take control of the House in January, it could help them with the voters in 2020.
Overwhelmed border officials beg 
for help amid surge of sick migrants
by Stephen Dinan 
{washingtontimes.com} ~ Border officials begged for medical help from the Coast Guard and the Pentagon to screen illegal immigrants and asked American and Mexican disease specialists to investigate... a surge of sick migrants caught at the border after another illegal immigrant child died in U.S. custody. Every juvenile currently held by U.S. Customs and Border Protection is being rechecked for health issues, and a review of CBP procedures is underway, authorities said after the death on Christmas Eve. This one involved an 8-year-old boy who jumped the border with his father on Dec. 18. They had been shuttled to four CBP facilities and one hospital in the six days before the boy’s death. CBP said more than two dozen “welfare checks” were performed during those six days and it wasn’t until the final day that the boy showed any problems. He was treated at a hospital and released just hours before falling ill again, and he died soon after he was readmitted. “This is a tragic loss,” CBP Commissioner Kevin K. McAleenan said in a statement late Tuesday. “Our deepest sympathies go out to the family.” The death has fueled an already raging debate over CBP’s handling of the surge of illegal immigrant families that is straining Homeland Security’s abilities. Democrats in Congress and immigrant rights activists across the country have said the blood of children is on the government’s hands and insist that bad policies and poor attitudes have contributed to the deaths...

Biased World? Turks Operating in Syria 
Judged Differently Than Israel
by SETH FRANTZMAN

{meforum.org} ~ Turkey views the mostly Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) in Syria as a threat, similar to how Israel views Hezbollah...
 US envoy for Syria engagement James Jeffrey said last week. However, when it comes to Turkey’s threats to carry out a major military operation in eastern Syria, countries in the international community, including the United States, have generally reacted with silence, whereas the same countries are concerned about any potential Israeli operation in southern Lebanon. Why is Turkey given the freedom to do whatever it wants in Syria, while Israel is not permitted to launch cross-border military operations without condemnation? US President Donald Trump decided to withdraw US troops from eastern Syria on Wednesday, after four years of fighting Islamic State. Meanwhile, Turkey says it will launch a military operation in eastern and northern Syria, similar to the one it launched in 2016 near Jarabulus and in Afrin in January.  “We are determined to turn the east of the Euphrates into a peaceful and livable place for its true owners just like the other areas we have made secure in Syria,” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on December 12. On December 14 he said that “with the steps we take in Syria, we not only ensure the security of our country but also protect the dignity of the Ummah and all humanity.”  Ummah means “Muslim community” and would be akin to the US saying it was operating in Syria to “protect the dignity of Christendom.”...

'Miraculously, We Found Bill's Crash Site'
by Mark Alexander:   A personal account of three days in a Vietnam veteran's life — separated by many decades.

             Shortly after midnight on Saturday, two weeks ago, I received this text message: “Miraculously, we found Bill’s crash site and the farmer who was nearby that day.
               That message was from halfway around the world in Vietnam, where my friend, Gen. Bill Raines (USA Ret.), was with another friend, Lt. Col. Bill Gauntt (USAF Ret.), on their return trip to a country where, as young men, they gave much and lost many. Our national sacrifice there includes the incalculable cost of 58,220 U.S. military fatalities, and the countless walking wounded who returned home — some of those wounds visible, many not.
               I’ve known many “old guys” a half generation ahead of me, Vietnam veterans – American Patriots who served our nation with honor and dignity. It has been a humbling privilege to profile a few of them, and by extension, to honor their generation of veterans.
               Among those profiles is a man who was a lifelong mentor, former POW Col. Roger Ingvalson (USAF Ret.). Two of his grandsons are now flying A-10 Warthogs. Another friend was also a POW and Medal of Honor recipient, Col. Leo Thorsness (USAF Ret.), who passed away last year.
               Leo was the author of “Mike’s Flag,” a brief but powerful tribute to a fellow POW, a young Navy pilot named Mike Christian. It is the preface to a children’s book sponsored by The Patriot Post, “I’m Your Flag.
               There are also the Marine profile tributes — Col. “Big” Jim McGinn and another Medal of Honor recipient, Col. Wesley Fox (USMC Ret.), who also passed away last year...  ~The Patriot Post

CONFUSION:   Pelosi Says Constitution Spells Out ‘Two Co-Equal Branches’ Of Government

No Nancy. No.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must be taking night classes at the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Government.

Pelosi, the 79-year-old third-highest ranking official in the U.S. government, was speaking to the Center for American Progress today when she mistakenly said there are “two co-equal branches” of government, before correcting herself to say there are three.

Watch:

“First of all, let me just say, we take an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” Pelosi said.

“Democrats take that oath seriously, and we are committed to honoring our oath of office. I’m not sure that our Republican colleagues share that commitment, and I’m not sure that the president of the United States does, too,” she claimed.

“So, in light of the fact that the beauty of the Constitution is a system of checks and balances— two co-equal branches— three co-equal branches of government,” she corrected with a laugh.

“A check and balance on each other,” she continued. “Con— Constitution spells out the pri— pa, uh, the duties of Congress and one of them is oversight of the president of the United States, another one of them is to impeach the president of the United States,” Pelosi said.

In November, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied supporters on Facebook to pitch in and help Democrats take back “all three chambers of Congress.”

“…the Progressive movement works and it wins in all districts…If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress– three chambers of government…,” she said during the virtual appearance.

She clarified that she meant the “presidency, the Senate and the House.”

According to the Constitution, the three branches of government are the legislative, executive and judicial.

Below: Nancy Pelosi is continuing to promote the false narrative that President Trump is involved in a cover-up and therefore may be guilty of an impeachable offense. Millie Weaver joins Alex to break down the propaganda being used to overturn the democratic election of 2016
