Rand Paul Slams Ultimate Budget Deal As “Massive, Bloated, Secretive”

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has expressed his opposition to the bi-partisan deal to keep the federal government open as a waste of taxpayer funds, as well as President Donald Trump’s decision to announce a state of emergency to acquire funds for a border wall. “I’m disappointed with both the massive, bloated, secretive bill that just passed and with the president’s intention to declare an emergency to build a wall,” Paul announced. Although he previously praised Trump’s negotiating prowess in acquiring border security funds, he was dismayed by both the overall level of spending in the final legislation and the procedural… Keep Reading

Mulvaney: Border Wall Funding Will Be In Budget

White House budget director Mick Mulvaney on Sunday mentioned the Trump administration will roll out a budget on Monday that will include funds to construct the president’s long-promised wall alongside the Mexican border. He mentioned the plan would come with $3 billion for the barrier and a contingency for $25 billion over two years if Congress approves laws to defend “Dreamers,” immigrants brought to the United States illegally by their parents, from deportation. “What I’m saying in a very confusing way is that we are assuming in our 2018 proposal that a DACA deal is done and that the border… Keep Reading

Border Wall Needed For National Security, Counterterrorism

As the bench-clearing brawl over border security roars on, it would behoove wall advocates to broaden their pitch. A wall would slash illegal immigration on the southern frontier. And it also would bolster U.S. national security and counterterrorism. Not every illegal alien dodges Gila monsters and skirts cacti in search of the American dream. Beyond old-fashioned killers, such as the remarkably brutal MS-13 gang, “special interest aliens” hail from nations rife with militant Islam, including Iran, Pakistan, and Syria. Most of these border jumpers may be perfectly harmless, but the risk that even a few may crave American blood is… Keep Reading

Trump Rebukes General Kelly On Border Wall

President Trump insisted on Thursday that his concept of a border wall hasn’t “evolved,” a day after his chief of staff informed lawmakers that the president’s campaign pledge to construct the barrier was not “fully informed.” “The Wall is the Wall, it has never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it,” Trump tweeted. “Parts will be, of necessity, see through and it was never intended to be built in areas where there is natural protection such as mountains, wastelands or tough rivers or water.” He continued: “The Wall will be paid for, directly or indirectly, or through longer-term reimbursement,… Keep Reading

House Freedom Caucus Threatens Government Shutdown Until Trump’s Wall Is Funded

The tumultuous relationship between the House Freedom Caucus and Donald Trump has run the gamut throughout his young presidency. The hard-line conservative lawmakers stymied Trump and drew his ire on health care reform, but on the issue of immigration, they are firmly in his corner and agitating aggressively to get his border wall appropriated in the budget. “There is nothing more critical that has to be funded than funding the border wall for two reasons,” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) said in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News. “One is it is a commitment that the president made to the American… Keep Reading

House Freedom Caucus Members Introduce El Chapo Act

On Thursday, several House Freedom Caucus members introduced the El Chapo Act, the House companion bill to Sen. Ted Cruz’s proposal to fund Trump’s border wall without the use of taxpayer dollars. The El Chapo Act was introduced by Rep. Mo Brooks and cosponsored by Congressmen Tom Garrett, Steve King, and Louie Gohmert – all members of the House Freedom Caucus. Rep. Kevin Brady, who is not a member of the House Freedom Caucus, also cosponsored the bill. The introduction of the El Chapo Act in the House comes in the midst of debate in Congress about whether to fund the construction of… Keep Reading

Trump Buries “America First” Agenda In One Day, Shifts Drastically Toward Establishment

In a startling turn of events, President Donald Trump has thrown his anti-globalist mandate to the wind. In just one day, Trump reversed his stance on labeling China a currency manipulator, announced his support for expanding the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), indicated his willingness to keep Janet Yellen at the helm of the Federal Reserve, and affirmed his support for the Import/Export bank. “The secretary-general and I had a productive discussion on what more NATO can do in the fight against terrorism,” Trump said at a joint press conference with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Wednesday. “I complained… Keep Reading

Tear Down The UN And Build The Wall

Last Wednesday, it was announced that, by way of executive fiat, the United States would begin scaling back its financial support of the United Nations (UN). It was the same day our new President signed an order which jump-starts the construction of his long promised wall along the US-Mexico border. At face value it would seem these two imperatives bare no similarity except for the expanded exertion of executive hegemony over our national governance. There’s more to this picture than meets the eye. For too long the United States has sacrificed its sovereignty on the altar of globalism, all at… Keep Reading

Get Ready, The Wall Is Coming

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order allowing a wall to be built along America’s southern border. In addition, he banned “catch-and-release” of illegal aliens and took steps to limit sanctuary cities. In a Wednesday interview with ABC news, Trump promised that “construction of the border wall will begin in months.” He also affirmed the fact that Mexico will pay for the wall. He claimed that U.S. taxpayers will front the cost, being reimbursed by Mexico later on, saying: “I’m telling you that there will be a payment. It will be in a form, perhaps a complicated form.” Keep Reading
