House Dems Vote To Spend Billions On Border Security In Middle East, Not A Cent On US


The House of Representatives has voted to allocate billions of American taxpayer funds to "enhance border security" in Middle Eastern nations.

 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her Democrat lieutenants certainly have their priorities. To them, the borders Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt and Tunisia are more important than our own.

 Townhall report: On June 19, the House approved a massive spending bill. In an act of legislative polygamy, it “married” the appropriations bill for the Department of Defense to the appropriations bills for the departments of State, Energy, Labor, Education and Health and Human Services.

 The Congressional Budget Office estimated this monstrosity would cost taxpayers $984.7 billion in fiscal 2020.

 Yet there is one thing on which this bill would forbid the Trump administration from spending one penny to accomplish.

 On page 304 (of 650), it says: “None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available by this Act or any prior Department of Defense appropriations Acts may be used to construct a wall, fence, border barriers, or border security infrastructure along the southern land border of the United States.”

 A month later, the House Appropriations Committee sent the full House a bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security.

This bill — so far — is unmarried and would cost taxpayers $63.8 billion.

President Trump had requested that it include $5 billion to use in constructing barriers at the border.

How much did the committee give him?

“No funding is provided in the bill for new physical barriers along the southwest border,” said the committee report.

It also said, “The recommendation provides no funding for additional Border Patrol Agents.”

 Yet that does not mean the Democrat-controlled House is not planning to spend some money to enhance border security.

It just depends on where the border is.

 In that 650-page spending bill that prohibits Defense Department money from being used to defend the southern border of the United States, there is a section that creates a $1.295 billion fund for use by the secretary of defense.

For the ‘Counter-Islamic State of Iraq and Syria Train and Equip Fund’, $1,295,000,000, to remain available until September 30, 2021,” says the bill. “Provided, That such funds shall be available to the secretary of defense in coordination with the Secretary of State, to provide assistance, including training; equipment; logistics support, supplies, and services; stipends; infrastructure repair and renovation; and sustainment, to foreign security forces, irregular forces, groups, or individuals participating, or preparing to participate in activities to counter the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, and their affiliated or associated groups.”

 Let’s get this straight. A nearly ONE TRILLION dollar House Democrats appropriations bill with billions sent to the Middle East for “border protection” but NOT A SINGLE CENT allocated for enhanced border protection for the United States!?

 And this comes out the same week that nine Americans, including women and children, were slaughtered by Mexican drug cartel terrorists mere miles from the southern border.

If you love America you will do all you can to help vote them out the Democrats in 2020.

Your life and the lives of your loved ones might very well depend upon it.

ALERT ALERT

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
