As everyone already knows, congressional horse-trading is about to collapse, and President Trump is on the verge of declaring the situation on the souther border a national security, criminal enterprise, and humanitarian national emergency.

Former Trump campaign operative Steve Cortes should have known better than to go on any CNN program headed-up by Pudd’nhead Cuomo.
Without fail, in the rare case of CNN actually inviting someone from within Trump’s inner-circle, CNN will decidedly stack the deck against them.
Predictably, Cuomo ensured CNN’s own version of MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, Ana Navarro, would double-team with him against Cortes.
Between the San Diego Police Department, the San Diego Sheriff’s Office, the California Highway Patrol and the Secret Service, the pro- and anti-Trump crowds were kept on separate sides of the main road heading into the area where the border wall prototypes are on display.
However, not all was peaceful as the LEOs (Law Enforcement Officials) kept the two groups at a safe distance, as an unknown number of troublemakers attempted to goad the pro-Trumper contingent.
Reported by the San Diego CBS affiliate KFMB-TV, roughly 45 minutes before the Commander-in-Chief arrived, a car drove directly in front of the Trump-backers waving a Mexican flag.
As the CBS reporter noted, whoever was waving the flag of a foreign nation also happened to drop it to the ground. Perhaps letting his bias show, the Fox network affiliate from San Diego (who shot the video, below), Jamie Chambers had a different take. I’m still not sure how you “snatch” a flag out of a moving vehicle.
Anyhow, apparently considering the dropped flag as discarded property, an unknown Trump supporter retrieved such, and as things turned out, had a bit of a political statement of his own.
At first glance, the Trump supporter appeared to be of Latino heritage, but was obviously 100 percent Rojo, Blanco y Azul.
The patriot exclaimed “F**k Mexico, this is AMERICA!” While a number of other individuals cheered him on, it was difficult to make out that the patriot-in-question was saying.
But he did finish with a hearty exhortation of “Wave the AMERICAN flag!”

It’s been awhile since any of us can recall the POTUS having a televised roundtable meeting with senators and congressmen of both parties.
To be honest, I can’t remember that ever happening. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it never happened, I’m just saying that this political junkie was born in the ’50s and nothing even close to today’s historical meeting held by President Trump leaps to mind (full meeting in video below).
One of the more prominent subjects discussed was DACA (Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program), which certainly appeared to me as a done deal.
Well, Trump certainly dangled the DACA carrot in front of the drooling Dems, almost daring them to accept his offer to sign-off on DACA if the Democrats agreed to:
- Dump the visa lottery in favor of a merit-based system
- Fund the border wall
- Scrap chain-migration
Now I realize that the machinations of politics is based on compromise, so no matter how much I want to see Trump get 100 percent of what he wants, the nature of the beast demands some give-and-take.
But one thing I’ve noticed, the Democrats love touting of the 690,000 “Dreamers”, a number are serving in the Armed Forces.
After some very basic research, I found that a mere 900 DACA enrollees either now of have ever served in the military. That’s just slightly above one-tenth of one percent.
Something else that I noticed, both Democrat and Republican members of Congress had quite the habit of referring to those in DACA as “kids”. It was only Trump that corrected that particular Infantilization.
Yet another few facts came to light that I’m sure the like-minded should be aware of;
DACA had no requirement of English fluency, as evidenced by the application form that had a space to list the translator used to complete the form. The Center for Immigration Studies estimates that “perhaps 24 percent of the DACA-eligible population fall into the functionally illiterate category and another 46 percent have only ‘basic’ English ability.”
Unfortunately, many Dreamers are poorly educated. Only 49 percent of DACA beneficiaries have a high school education, even though a majority are now adults.
But the pièce de résistance regarding the Dreamers is this;
The Obama administration did not check the background of each DACA beneficiary, despite a requirement that they have no felony convictions and pose no threat to national security. Only a few randomly selected DACA applicants were ever actually vetted.
This may explain why, by August this year, more than 2,100 DACA beneficiaries had had their eligibility pulled because of criminal convictions and gang affiliation.
Nothing drives Democrats up the wall faster than the truth. Especially when it comes to talking about building a wall.
To assist my fellow citizens who agree with me that we’ve endured at least the past quarter century at the receiving end of a millions strong silent invasion of no-skill/low-skill laborers.
Much like the Democrat convulsions over Trump possibly allowing Obama’s DACA dying on the vine, how quick those same Democrats fail to remember that DACA was an Obama “temporary fix” with no guarantee of immunity, amnesty or to be seen as “a pathway to citizenship”.
And let’s not forget that the travel ban on certain Muslim-majority nation didn’t originate with Trump, but with Barack Hussein.
Anyhow, with the Border Wall about to be in the news non-stop for the next few weeks, here’s a couple if videos you may want to share with those who wish to rail against Trump, just show them these videos;
