by sundance
{theconservativetreehouse.com} ~ Comprehensive border security, and funding for a barrier therein, is the central topic in President Trump’s first Oval Office address.

If Media ‘Were Doing Their Job,’ They ‘Would 
Be Blasting Democrats’ on Gov’t Shutdown
by Craig Millward  
{cnsnews.com} ~ Speaking on Mark Levin’s Fox News show “Life, Liberty & Levin” on Sunday night, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell told Levin that “the media... if they were doing their job, would be blasting the Democrats: A) for being dishonest, for the reason I gave you, and B) for being absolute hypocrites.” “The American people have watched our government spend $8 trillion in the last two years, but they can't find 5 billion? This is a joke. This is a running and a very bad joke,” Bozell said. The media, if they were doing their job, would be blasting the Democrats: A) for being dishonest, for the reason I gave you, and B) for being absolute hypocrites. In 2006, Senator scumbag/liar-Clinton, Senator scumbag/clown-Schumer, Senator scumbag/liar-nObama all supported building the wall. They all did what you just said. So it is, falsehoods and it’s hypocrisy that is rampant.” While  most of the government is funded through next year, funding for agencies such as the Homeland Security Department, the Justice Department and the Agriculture Department expired on Dec. 21, 2018. President Trump is asking for $5 Billion for a border wall, while Democrats are saying they will not fund the wall...

Do 98 Percent of Unaccompanied Minors 
From Central America ‘Never Leave’?
by Emily Larsen
{dailysignal.com} ~ Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that 98 percent of unaccompanied alien minors from Central America “never leave” the U.S. ... “Right now, we have 11,000 unaccompanied minors from Central America; 98 percent of them never leave,” Graham said Dec. 30. Government immigration data show that 2 percent of unaccompanied children from the Northern Triangle region in Central America apprehended in fiscal year 2017 have left the country. But another 9 percent have received removal orders and 87 percent are still in immigration court, meaning more may leave the country in the future. It’s possible that many of the unaccompanied minors will stay in the U.S. unauthorized even if they receive a removal order. Limited government data, lengthy immigration court processes, and issues tracking individual cases make it difficult to predict an exact number of unaccompanied minors who remain in the U.S. permanently. When Graham mentioned 11,000 unaccompanied minors, he may have been thinking of the number of unaccompanied alien children in Health and Human Services custody. His office did not respond to requests for comment. The Department of Homeland Security refers apprehended migrant minors who arrived alone or were separated from their parents to HHS’ Office of Refugee Resettlement. The New York Times reported that more than 11,000 children were in HHS custody in August, but HHS told The Daily Caller News Foundation in an email that the number is currently around 12,400. Unaccompanied alien children referred to the Office of Refugee Resettlement are placed with sponsors in the U.S. while they await immigration hearings...
Congressman calls on Justice Department to 
halt federal funding for Nation of Islam
by Alana Goodman
{washingtonexaminer.com} ~ Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., Monday called on the Department of Justice to immediately halt federal funding to the Nation of Islam... after the Washington Examiner first reported that the group has received hundreds of thousands of dollars from the government to teach religious studies programs to prison inmates. In a letter to the Justice Department obtained by the Washington Examiner, Buchanan called the report “disturbing” and said the government’s funding of the openly anti-Semitic black separatist group was “downright immoral.” “As you may know, the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center have designated the Nation of Islam as a hate group for its racist and anti-Semitic beliefs,” Buchanan wrote in the letter to acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker. “The federal government should not use taxpayer dollars to subsidize one of the most infamous hate groups in the United States,” Buchanan added. “That’s why I’m demanding your department immediately cease all contracts with the Nation of Islam and prohibit it from receiving any contracts in the future.”...

Defense attorney calls out dirty cop-Mueller
 team’s questionable tactics in court filing
{conservativeinstitute.org} ~ Lawyers representing a Russian company charged with election interference turned to a famous pop culture reference to bash Special Counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller in a court filing on Friday... Defense attorney Eric A. Dubelier, who represents Concord Management and Consulting, quoted the iconic 1978 movie Animal House to make his point that prosecutors are inappropriately siphoning confidential evidence from the defense. This isn’t the first time that Dubelier has used modern cultural references to make arguments in the special counsel case. He also cited a 19th-century Catholic historian in Friday’s filing, and previous motions from the defense have included quotes from the cartoon character Tweety Bird and the 1942 film Casablanca. Dubelier made headlines last month for submitting a motion claiming that dirty cop-Mueller is unlawfully withholding evidence from the defense, casually noting that a “nude selfie” was among the irrelevant material that the special counsel sought to keep concealed. “Could the manner in which he collected a nude selfie really threaten the national security of the United States?” the defense wrote in December court filing...  https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/conservative-news/attorney-mu...

Escape From Portland
by Daniel Greenfield
{frontpagemag.com} ~ It was a big year in Portland where the murder rate rose 18.6%. That was the perfect time for Portland’s progressive politburo to spend over $1 million on unarmed cops... armed only with pepper spray. There was a little bit of excitement when it was learned that their 200 hours of training would include “Taser Orientation” suggesting that they might be allowed to carry tasers. But Mayor Wheeler’s office explained that the weaponless cops weren’t being trained to use tasers, but “how to avoid being tased”. Portlanders aren’t waiting for officers to show up and shout, “Don’t tase me, bro”. Instead in a city overrun with crime, they’re increasingly taking matters and guns into their hands. Of the 32 violent deaths in Portland last year, 5 were found to have been carried out in self-defense. That tops the 4 deaths that occurred as a result of shootings by those cops who still have their guns. Richard R. Hanley showed up in the parking lot outside Timeless Tattoo. The California homeless bum had previously made the news when he was arrested for attacking his ex-girlfriend and her new beau with a metal chain. Hanley, already on probation for a domestic abuse and strangulation conviction, with six felony and seven misdemeanor priors, also pulled out huge clumps of a female deputy’s hair. The repeat offender began setting up his tent in the parking lot. When a female catering manager asked him to stop, he attacked her. Joseph D. Vinci, a tattoo artist, intervened. Hanley pulled a knife and Vinci pulled a gun. And Hanley’s long reign of terror ended to the outcry of local pro-crime activists...  https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/272426/escape-portland-daniel-gree...

What Patriotic Service Looks Like
by Nate Jackson:  In the above photo, Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) (center) welcomes new “All American” wounded combat veterans — Rep. Jim Baird (R-IN) (left) and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) (right) — on their first day in the 116th U.S. Congress. “5 eyes. 5 arms. 4 legs. All American,” Mast said. Unlike most members of Congress, these men know the cost of their oaths “to support and defend” our Constitution and the price of serving our country.

             Mast enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserve in May 2000, and he later served as an explosive ordnance disposal technician in Afghanistan. In September 2010, he was clearing a path for Army Rangers in Kandahar when he was severely wounded by an IED, leading to the amputation of a finger and both of his legs.
               Baird served as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army in Vietnam. In March 1971, he was part of the 523rd Transportation Company, which was caught in a deadly ambush that cost him his left arm.
               And Crenshaw, who’s already made a splash on the political scene with his winsome personality and capable rebuttal of leftist nonsense, served for a decade as a Navy SEAL, including three tours of duty. In 2012 in Afghanistan, Crenshaw was wounded by an IED that took his right eye and nearly the vision in his left. He deployed twice more after recovering.
               All three men are recipients of Bronze Stars, Purple Hearts, and other medals for their service. “I look at them and I do think they embody the American spirit,” Mast said of his new congressional friends. “I’m proud to be serving with the both of them.” Congress could use a few hundred more men and women like them.  ~The Patriot Post

ALERT ALERT

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.
