After Trump hit Congress with a big ultimatum, both houses scrambled to pass border funding. While the Senate scored a big win with a major funding package, Pelosi’s House Democrats tried to sneak in a ton of bad ideas. They tried to undermine Trump’s goal of enforcing our border. But, once again, the left failed.

President Trump, despite epic opposition, is making progress at the border. Major parts of the wall are being built—with older fencing being replaced and upgraded. He sent National Guard troops to support Border Patrol. He’s even gotten Mexico to step up their efforts in a major way.

The only holdout to securing our border and ending the massive caravan crisis has been Congress. Democrats refused to do anything to stop the constant flow of migrants to our border. They do not want the wall or stricter immigration rules. According to many 2020 candidates, they even want to decriminalize illegal immigration.

So, Trump dropped a hammer on them: either make a deal or ICE will deport millions of illegal aliens.

Panicked, Democrats in Congress agreed to pass funding for the border. Yet even then, they tried to undermine our national security. Pelosi and House Democrats tried to force measures in their bill that would weaken our immigration enforcement, give asylum seekers more power, and make it harder for the government to protect the border.

The very opposite of what we need and want.

Pelosi got a rude awakening, though, when the Senate—by a vote 84 to 8—passed a funding measure with no such “poison pills.” That incredible show of bipartisan support for Trump forced Pelosi to do something. I guess she had no choice.

A coalition of moderate Democrats and Republicans approved crucial border funding legislation late Thursday in the House, sending the $4.6 billion bill to President Trump’s desk for his expected signature — after Speaker Nancy Pelosi backed down from a push to include restrictions on immigration enforcement that could have scuttled the measure…

But the speaker agreed to bring the bipartisan Senate-passed bill to a vote, without such restrictions, following intense pressure from Republicans and moderates in her own party. The Senate had demonstrated that bipartisan support by approving the bill 84-8 a day earlier, after rejecting an earlier House version…

It’s been so hard to get support for Trump’s immigration plans, because Democrats in Congress simply don’t care. For over two years, we’ve seen the situation at the border get worse. Since the caravans started coming, every expert has called it a crisis.

Democrats, though, kept ignoring it. Remember, Pelosi shut down the government in January to prevent funding for the border. Time and again, Trump has offered deals to fix the crisis. And the left’s rejected it.

Why are they willing to do something all of a sudden? Because once again, Trump had to act. Fearing mass deportations of illegal aliens already in the country, Democrats were forced to provide funding to address the border crisis.

I guess that’s the only way these clowns get anything done. President Trump has to use the nuclear option, just to wake them up. These corrupt crooks in D.C. would rather waste time and money on useless subpoenas and empty accusations of “collusion” than deal with a growing problem.

We also know that Democrats have been encouraging illegal immigration for years, because they think these newcomers will vote for them. They have degraded the national security and economic stability of this country (not to mention rob blue collar Americans of jobs), just to they can will elections. Pathetic.

But all that is changing. Donald Trump is fixing a problem that has existed for years. And he’s done the impossible: get Democrats to support his vision.

Pelosi might not be happy about it, but the rest of us are.

Wow, is there anything Donald Trump can’t do?

This week, watchdog group Project Veritas released footage that showed a top Google exec admitting to trying to fix the 2020 Election. It comes as more and more tech companies seek to censor conservatives. During a recent interview, President Trump addressed this growing trend and is demanding action.

It’s no secret that Facebook, YouTube, Google, Twitter, and all your favorite social sites are run by hardcore leftists. These are more than just “well-meaning” Democrats. Silicon Valley is comprised of some of the most left-wing citizens in the country.

After Trump’s victory in 2016, these tech companies panicked. They believed their platforms allowed conservatives to voice their support of Trump and spread their ideas. Of course, they decided this was no longer allowed. While social networks couldn’t openly announce conservatives were banned, they started a campaign to harass, intimidate, and censor them—so that their ideas couldn’t spread.

Top conservative reporters, thinkers, and celebrities have been systematically banned from social networks—being accused of spreading “hate speech.” Of course, anything these hardcore socialists don’t like is considered hate speech these days.

They never clearly define what hate speech is. It seems they only attack conservatives who are popular and influential.

This week, Project Veritas exposed what we all knew was going on. They released video of Jen Gennai, Google’s Head of Responsible Innovation, who admitted the company was working on making sure Trump didn’t win the next election.

“We all got screwed over in 2016, again it wasn’t just us, it was, the people got screwed over, the news media got screwed over, like, everybody got screwed over so we’ve rapidly been like, what happened there and how do we prevent it from happening again.” [Source: Daily Wire]

There’s no way of misinterpreting what this Google exec is saying. She is clearly announcing that Google—the biggest search engine in the world—is working to “prevent” another Trump victory.

How could they do this? Easy. By blocking any articles, news, and information from showing up on their site that might help Trump or conservatives. Instead of letting content freely flow through their platform—as they should—they are becoming censors, controlling what you see for their own political agenda.

This is a massive conflict of interest and violates the trust of every user. And they all do it.

During an interview, President Trump discussed big tech censorship. And he wasn’t happy about it.

“Well, they’re doing it to me on Twitter. What they did to me on Twitter is incredible. You know, I have millions and millions of followers, but I will tell you, they make it very hard for people to join me on Twitter and they make it very much harder for me to get out the message.”

“You may need legislation to create competition. Look, it’s amazing that I won the election, because you saw what happened yesterday with Google. Google is totally biased….

I tell you what, they should be sued, because what’s happening with the bias— and now you see it, with that executive yesterday from Google, the hatred for the Republicans. It’s not even like, ‘Gee, let’s lean Democrat.’ The hatred! And actually, you know, I heard that all during my election. It’s hard that I won. They were swamping us with negative stuff.” [Source: Daily Wire]

Every leader should be worried about what Google and other tech companies are doing. Today, they are censoring conservatives. But if nothing is done, it won’t be long until they go after everyone. Every person that doesn’t fit their strict, biased views.

President Trump is calling for these sites to be sued and for legislation to be passed to create competition. What does he mean by that? It looks like Trump might be mulling over breaking up Google and some of these large tech companies. Trustbusting these monopolies, like we did in the old days.

That would ensure none of them are powerful enough to censor anyone. Sounds like a good plan.

If that doesn’t happen—how long before nobody is free to speak their mind online?

After numerous recent attacks, Iran continued its hostility toward the U.S. when it insulted Donald Trump. It seems like the rogue nation wishes to start a war of words—with the world’s greatest troll. The president fired back at Iran, absolutely torching them to the ground. He made clear warnings they’d be smart to listen to.

It seems like Iran won’t be happy until it’s a smoking crater. They had it easy under Obama, who gave the nation billions in cash. His nuclear deal would have ensured the rogue nation would have acquired WMD’s very quickly.

But those easy days are over. Iran has suffered, thanks to President Trump’s strict sanctions. Obama’s old deal was torn up. Iran faces international consequences, if they continue to harass neighboring nations and anyone else.

I guess the corrupt, evil leaders of Iran don’t get it. Over the last few months, they’ve attacked international oil tankers in the Gulf. That kind of clear and hostile action demand a response. To add to that, they actually shot down a U.S. Navy drone. Trump was about to retaliate, but decided to relent at the last minute.

Unwilling to learn, Iran then released a statement, calling our president “mentally retarded.” While far-left cronies in Hollywood would agree with such an insult—the rest of America does not. And the president unloaded on Iran—giving them a tongue lashing they won’t forget.

On Tuesday, after Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani attacked President Trump, saying the White House’s actions show that Trump is “mentally retarded,” Trump fired back with a series of tweets warning Iran that if they attack anything American, that action would be met with “great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No more John Kerry & Obama!”

Trump segued to a condemnation of the regime for bombs that have murdered thousands of Americans, writing, “The wonderful Iranian people are suffering, and for no reason at all. Their leadership spends all of its money on Terror, and little on anything else. The U.S. has not forgotten Iran’s use of IED’s & EFP’s (bombs), which killed 2000 Americans, and wounded many more…” [Source: Daily Wire]

President Trump was pulling no punches when he responded to Iran’s pathetic insult. It seems like Iran is as delusional as many Democrats. They underestimate Trump’s skill and resolve and don’t believe he will carry out with his warnings.

They should ask Hillary Clinton how that strategy works out.

Trump’s words should send Iran’s corrupt leadership panicking. He is giving them clear warnings that he will not be nice or compassionate with them. He reminded Iran that the U.S. military is the strongest in the world. It wouldn’t be difficult for us to use military intervention in Iran—without breaking a sweat.

The president went on to show support for the Iranian people, who have suffered under a strict, Muslim dictatorship for over forty years. He exposed Iran as the state sponsor of terrorism that it is. And he called out Iran’s use of IED’s that have killed 2,000 Americans.

Donald Trump finished his warning with a grave promise. He said that if Iran attacks anything American, it will be met with great and overwhelming force. He then used the word “obliteration.”

Sounds tough, but that’s the only language Iran understands. It is a brutal and uncaring regime. Iran abuses its own people, while spending tons of cash to equip terrorists. They hate Israel, the only true democracy in the Middle East. Iran have made itself an enemy of America and our allies.

A nation like this doesn’t want to negotiated. How could you? We have a master negotiator in the White House, a man that could easily land a deal with Iran. Instead, these idiots called him “retarded.” Good job, Iran. You provoked the one man that could have saved your skins.

You better believe their leaders are shaking in their boots, now. The new sanctions deprive the ayatollahs from funding more terrorist activities. The next step? Swift military action that will leave Iran completely defeated.

They should probably rethink their statements next time.

President Trump punished Iran by slapping them with “hard-hitting” financial sanctions and calling out Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and his associates. “Today’s action follows a series of aggressive behaviors by the Iranian regime in recent weeks including shooting down a U.S. drone,” the president said in the Oval Office, calling Khamenei “responsible for the hostile conduct of the regime.”

Trump said the sanctions “will deny the supreme leader and the supreme leader’s office and those closely affiliated with him and the office access to key financial resources and support.” Speaking to reporters in the White House briefing room Monday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the sanctions “lock up literally billions of dollars more of assets.”

“Along with that action today, we are also announcing specific actions targeting those responsible for recent activities,” Mnuchin said, adding that the president has instructed him to sanction Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif “later this week.” The Treasury Department, in a news release, said “any foreign financial institution that knowingly facilitates a significant financial transaction for entities designated under this Executive Order could be cut off from the U.S. financial system.”

The sanctions come after a confirmed U.S. military cyberattack against Iran in direct retaliation for their downing of an American Drone in international air space. The cyberattack was intended to be launched jointly with airstrikes until the President called off the airstrikes, deciding rather to spare the lives of roughly 150 people which would have been casualties of the attack. “I stopped it, not … proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone,” President Trump tweeted at the time.

Sources say U.S. Cyber Command launched the cyberattack targeting the Iranian intelligence and radar installations which were used in the downing of the U.S. Navy drone last week. Some of Iran’s military radar sites went offline around the time the U.S. airstrikes were supposed to take place. It’s not clear if those radar sites were turned off by the cyberattack or if Iran shut them off deliberately in anticipation of this.

Tensions have steadily risen between the two countries following initial sanctions issued by Washington on Iran which led to attacks on two oil tankers. With the recent downing of the U.S. Navy drone, Iran has forced tensions to a boiling point.

A spokesman for Iran’s Foreign Ministry said in a tweet Tuesday that the new U.S. sanctions that target Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and other officials close any channel for diplomacy between the two countries “forever.” Abbas Mousavi took to Twitter to call out President Trump’s latest decision to impose additional sanctions and said the sanctions means “closing channel of diplomacy forever,” according to Reuters.

“Trump’s desperate administration is destroying the established international mechanisms for maintaining world peace and security,” the tweet read. Trump has shown strength in his show of prudence while dealing with a hostile country. Trump appears hesitant to enter another hot war in the region and has proven that in how carefully he has tread in his dealings with Iran. On the other hand, Iran, seems to be war hungry as they attempt to provoke the U.S. into an action that would spring the two nations into war and likely their allies as well. Trump said Monday. however, that his “restraint” is not limitless.

The theory that Rep. Ilhan Omar married her brother has recently been reaffirmed amid a fury of newly discovered official documents released on Sunday. These documents suggest that Omar lived with her current husband Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi during the entire time that she was legally married to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, the man more commonly known as her brother.

The Washington Examiner reports that Omar tells her martial history the following way:

2002: Omar married Hirsi in a faith ceremony, but never legally married.

2008: Omar and Hirsi “decided to end our relationship in our faith tradition.”

Early 2009: Omar legally married Elmi.

2011: Omar and Elmi religiously divorced.

2011: Omar and Hirsi reconciled.

2017: Omar and Elmi belatedly obtained a legal divorce.

2018: Omar and Hirsi legally married.

However, Omar’s lies have begun to unravel as her recalling of the timeline of events appears to conflict with the newly uncovered documents. The evidence suggests that Omar has always been in a marital relationship, even while married to her brother Elmi.

A report by the Washington Examiner regarding the matter reads:

“Public documents, for instance, place Hirsi and Omar living in a home together in the Cedar Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis in 2009, the year Elmi and Omar married, and two years before Omar claims she reconciled with Hirsi.

In legal documents, including 24 traffic violations and misdemeanor charges against Hirsi obtained by the Washington Examiner, Hirsi listed his address at a single Cedar Riverside address consistently in 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. Four minor cases against Omar show that in 2007, 2009, and 2012, she listed her address at the same Cedar Riverside address.

Specifically, local courts listed this address for both Omar and Hirsi in separate traffic violations in mid-2009, the year Omar and Elmi married.”

The documents were uncovered this as part of an ongoing investigation this month that the far left liberal illegally diverted campaign funds for her own personal use on multiple occasions, which is a major violation of campaign finance laws. Reports by the Star Tribune had this to say:

“The Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board has ordered U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar to personally reimburse her own campaign account $3,469.23 and to pay a civil penalty of $500 for violating state campaign finance rules dating to her time as a member of the state House.

The amount that the Minnesota Democrat must repay represents what the board determined is the total amount of campaign funds that Omar used in 2016 and 2017 for purposes not permitted by state law.

That includes a payment of $1,500 to a law firm that, her lawyer testified, was related to some corrections made to her personal tax returns that were discovered as part of an inquiry into her financial records by a “crisis committee.” That committee was set up to respond to never-proven allegations that Omar had married her own brother as part of an “immigration scheme,” in the words of the board’s report on the matter.

“The questions surfaced again this month in a state probe of campaign finance violations showing that Omar filed federal taxes in 2014 and 2015 with her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, while she was still legally married to but separated from Elmi…

…Since the recent findings of the campaign finance board that discovered Omar had improperly used campaign money to pay a lawyer to fix her tax filings, the Star Tribune searched public records — including available databases, the marriage and divorce filing, business licenses, university records and other documents — and could find little publicly available information about Elmi. The search of records could neither conclusively confirm nor rebut the allegation that he is Omar’s sibling.

Sent a list of questions and a request to talk to her siblings and father, Omar declined to do so. Hirsi did not reply to multiple calls, texts and e-mails. Social media posts indicate Elmi is in Africa. He did not respond to multiple e-mails.”

Omar spokesman Jeremy Slevin has been steadfast in his coverup. Denying that any of this was accurate and even issued a statement to the Star Tribune saying that questions about Omar’s marriage to her brother are not legitimate.

These types of scandals are becoming the gold standard for the modern–day Democrat. If these are the types of people they’re putting in office, we need to do everything we can to ensure that Democrats stay out of the White House before they cause serious issues for this great country.

Condoleezza Rice was recently interviewed by NBC News. During the interview she was asked about the current racial climate that our country is experiencing. The left-wing journalist tried to get the former secretary of state to throw President Trump under the bus. Rice responded, but not in the way the reporter was hoping!

There is an odd trend within the liberal media to get former conservative leaders to bash the president. I guess they think this will hurt Trump among long-standing conservative voters. I mean, if George W. Bush, or Jeb, or Colin Powell hammer Donald Trump, then he must be really bad.

And sometimes it works. There is still a small group of Republicans that hate Trump. I can’t see why; Trump has been scoring one conservative win after another. He has a better track record than Ronald Reagan.

Recently, Condoleezza Rice, who was the country’s first female black secretary of state, was questioned about current race relations. The NBC News reporter claimed that things feel worse now than they’ve ever been. She specifically put the blame on President Trump, saying, it comes down from the top. I suppose the reporter hoped this former SoS and respected woman would jump in to bash Donald Trump.

She thought wrong.

During a sit-down interview with Sheinelle Jones of NBC, the reporter asked Rice her thoughts on the notion that it currently “feels worse now when we’re talking about race.” She would later specifically tie the suggestion to Trump, noting that the discourse “comes from the top-down,” starting with the president.

“It sure doesn’t feel worse than when I grew up in Jim Crow Alabama,” Rice immediately fired back, as reported by The Blaze. “So let’s drop this notion that we’re worse race relations today than we were in the past. Really? That means we’ve made no progress.”

“For people who say, it’s top-down, it starts with the president—” countered Jones, before being cut off by Rice.

“Oh, come on, alright,” the former secretary of state jumped in. “I would be the first to say we need to watch our language about race. We need to watch that we don’t use dog whistles to people. But when we start saying, ‘Oh, you know, it’s worse today,’ no, they’re not.” [Source: Daily Wire]

Woah. Talk about putting someone in their place! This reporter was clearly baiting Rice to say something bad about Trump. She must have thought Rice was a part of the D.C. establishment—who hate Trump and want to see him fail.

But it appears Rice is far too classy and professional for that. She blasted this reporter’s claim that race relations are worse off than they were in the past. She even recounts a moment when she was a child, growing up in the deeply divided Alabama. At school, she was only one of three black girls. And some students wouldn’t even sit next to her in class.

That must have been terrible. But we’ve come a long way since then. You’d be hard-pressed to find any school where white kids don’t want to sit next to black kids.

The left is trying by any means to undermine President Trump’s administration and his chances at re-election. They’ve spread all kinds of rumor and slander against the man. The biggest has been the Russia hoax—which they thought they could use to impeach him. But time and again they drag out the tired lie that he’s racist.

Even though his policies have helped African America unemployment to reach record lows. As well as Hispanic unemployment and female unemployment. The notion that a “racist” president would help minorities of all kinds find good work and higher wages is laughable.

But that’s what the left wants you to believe. They spread this lie, hoping you’ll believe it instead of the facts right in front of your face. NBC News hoped the former secretary of state would jump right in, blaming Trump for supposed racial tensions.

But Rice’s response was just perfect and put this reporter to shame. More people need to follow Rice’s lead and stand up for the truth. We are doing much better than we have in the past. And we have Donald Trump to thank.

New York’s latest law is so ridiculous that an upstate New York clerk is refusing to abide by it. Erie County Clerk Michael Kearns has expressed fierce criticism for the new legislation that was signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo earlier this week. This new law allows undocumented migrants to apply for drivers’ licenses and Kearns is saying he “will not be granting drivers’ licenses to illegal immigrants.”

According to WIVB in Buffalo, Kearns sent a letter to attorney Michael Siragusa on Tuesday asking for representation in a lawsuit over the legislation in federal court, Siragusa did not immediately respond to requests for comment. WIVB reported that a spokesperson for the attorney said the letter had been delivered, and that he “will be reviewing the request to make a determination on any potential action.”

The troubling law makes New York the 13th state to authorize driver’s licenses for immigrants who have entered the U.S. illegally. Some feel that this is wrong because it acts as a reward for those who broke the law by sneaking into the country. Kearns is not only one of those people, but he also believes that this state law breaks overarching federal immigration laws. “After a review of the act, I am convinced that it is inconsistent with federal law,” Kearns wrote in the letter. “More importantly, however, complying with the act puts me and other county clerks in the untenable position of having to decide whether to uphold federal law or the newly enacted state law. I anticipate being sued in either event.”

When speaking with WIVB, Kearns made suggestions that the bill may be a violation of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, which would make it illegal to knowingly hire illegal immigrants.

Kearns also told the media outlet he has hopes that the law will get thrown out prior to going into effect as is currently scheduled in December. He added that he will not follow the law if it does take effect. When asked if he is prepared to lose his position if he doesn’t comply with the law Kearns told the television station, “He [Governor Cuomo] has the power. However, through my research, working through my legal team, we have to be charged. There has to be some charges, and I get to answer those charges. It’s almost one of those things we’re preparing for. I hope it doesn’t happen.”

Gov. Cuomo’s support for the bill has recently appeared to shift however, as he expressed concerns that the U.S. immigration officials could potentially use state license information to locate immigrants for deportation. The governor asked for a legal review by the office of Attorney General Letitia James, who said she supports the bill but wouldn’t speculate on the federal response.

Supporters of the bill include the state Business Council and immigrant advocates who think licenses would help immigrants get jobs. Republican lawmakers, the only sane party left, argue that illegal immigrants shouldn’t be rewarded for violating the rules.

Kearns stand is very important in the fight against the irrational Dems. who look to ruin the country one step at a time.

It’s official. Donald Trump is running for re-election as President of the United States. He made his official announcement during a packed-out rally in Orlando, FL. The president slammed the many forces that tried to destroy his administration. He touted his achievements over the last two and a half years. And he unveiled his new slogan for the 2020 campaign. All Democrats could do was watch and complain.

When Donald Trump announced he was holding a big rally in Orlando, requests for tickets came in fast. Over 100,000 people wanted to attend the big event—they knew what was soon to happen. The man who defied all odds to beat Hillary Clinton—and the media—would announce his re-election campaign.

Thousands of people camped outside the venue for days in advanced. Donald’s people erected big movie screens outside so the overflow crowds, number in the tens of thousands, could watch the festivities. All of Trump’s top people were there, including Vice President Pence, First Lady Melania Trump, and outgoing Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.

The event was a big, intense celebration. But the crux of it all was when Trump officially announced his re-election campaign—and the slogan that will define the 2020 Election.

President Trump formally launched his 2020 re-election campaign Tuesday night before a jam-packed crowd in Orlando’s Amway Center arena, and quickly unloaded on the media organizations and government actors he said tried their hardest with “everything they had” to bring down both his candidacy and presidency…

And after polling the boisterous crowd, Trump appeared to settle on a new campaign slogan: “Keep America Great.” [Source: Fox News]

If Democrats hated “Make America Great Again,” they are really going to get triggered by “Keep America Great.” That’s because this slogan is a reminder that Trump has been successful at keeping his many campaign promises. During the rally, he recounted many of them.

He’s slashed taxes and government regulation. He’s brought jobs back to the U.S. He scored numerous new trade deals and agreements. Because of this unemployment is down and wages are up. ISIS has been defeated. North Korea is willing to de-nuclearize. And there is a renewed movement to eliminate abortion.

All of the many accomplishments of the Trump administration happened under intense opposition from not only the Democrats, but by the mainstream media. At every turn, major news outlets have spread fake news to undermine the president’s agenda. They have spun rumor and hoaxes as fact. They have ignored Trump’s many accomplishments. All to prevent America from coming back from the brink.

But despite such obstruction, Trump has continued to succeed. And it seems like the American people have noticed. Even as the media claims Trump’s support is failing, you wouldn’t know that by looking at the massive crowds at this rally.

During the night, Democratic candidates thought they could undermine Trump’s huge rally by releasing pathetic jabs. Biden had his deputy manage release a statement loaded with slander and lies.

“Our country cannot afford four more years of Trump diminishing America’s role on the world stage… and dividing our country by embracing toxic bigotry and racism that’s antithetical to who we are,” Bedingfield added. [Source: Fox News]

What a low-energy, petty swipe at a man that’s done more than Biden has in his forty-plus years in D.C.

Bernie tried to steal Trump’s thunder with a forum on Reddit. But even there, he was slammed by patriots.

Sanders, meanwhile, hosted an “Ask Me Anything” open forum on Reddit on Tuesday… Not all of the participants in Sanders’ Reddit event gave him a warm welcome, however, with some pointing out Sanders’ recent, dramatic rise to wealth.

“People like you have destroyed the working class by taking more of their taxes to fund a corporate-run utopia that never can exist,” one user replied. “Wealth is decided by the rarity of your skill set, not how hard you work, Mr. 3 mansions and an Audi R8.” [Source: Fox News]

Clearly, the “top” Democratic candidates are out-of-touch with what’s going on in America. People are taking their country back by supporting a man that is putting them first. Trump is doing what Democrats always promised to do, but never intended.

I guess they’ll have to complain about his success for another four years.

Trump’s State Department made the announcement on Monday that they’re tackling a large source of U.S. bound illegal immigrants by cutting foreign aid to the “Northern Triangle.” This foreign aid would be restored to the three countries – Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador – once their governments took “concrete action” to cut down the flow of migrants towards the United States.

This is the latest installment in a series of powerful moves made by Trump to secure our southern border, coming less than two weeks after a last-minute deal was reached with Mexico just before the White House would have issued a series of escalating tariffs against them. The deal required Mexico lining its northern border with additional troops and tightening up their asylum protocols.

President Trump previously pushed in March to cut $615 million in aid to the Northern Triangle, pointing out that the nations have been home to some of the migrant caravans that have marched through Mexico to the U.S. border to claim asylum, in some cases fraudulently. On further review, the State Department said the administration has decided to continue to provide $432 million for anti-gang, education, and health initiatives. U.S. officials said the review looked at roughly 700 projects funded with fiscal 2017 money by the United States in the three countries and concluded that a significant number were too far advanced to end them.

The latest plans tell a different story, however, as they show roughly $370 million from the fiscal year 2018 budget will no longer be provided to the Northern Triangle and approximately $185 million from the 2017 budget will be withheld for the time being. According to Fox News, A State Department official told said a re-evaluation would be concluded no later than April 2020. “We will not provide new funds for programs in those countries until we are satisfied that the Northern Triangle governments are taking concrete actions to reduce the number of migrants coming to the U.S. border,” State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said. “This is consistent with the president’s direction and with the recognition that it is critical that there be sufficient political will in these countries to address the problem at its source.” She added, “Working with Congress, we will reprogram those funds to other priorities as appropriate.” Ortagus noted that “previously awarded grants and contracts will continue with current funding.”

Democrats, who would rather allow our great nation be polluted by the criminals entering from the south, criticized the decision. “As feared, a presidential tantrum will limit our nation’s ability to actually help address the challenges forcing people to flee to the U.S.,” Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., tweeted.

These 3 countries have been a thorn in the side of the U.S. for quite some time now. Their weak immigration policies have made it entirely too easy for migrants to head towards the U.S. which pledged more than $10 billion in aid last December in an effort to help keep potential migrants in their home country. Later in that month Trump pointed out these countries were not doing their part and were instead mooching off of the U.S.”…Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador are doing nothing for the United States but taking our money… Word is that a new Caravan is forming in Honduras and they are doing nothing about it,” Trump added. “We will be cutting off all aid to these 3 countries — taking advantage of U.S. for years!”

For too long we as a country have been taken for fools by other poorer nations who willingly accept our aid but then do nothing in return. Trump taking a stand is exactly what the U.S. needs, a strong president who has our best interests in mind – a far cry from anything the Democrats have to offer.

Democrats still hold out hope that Donald Trump will be impeached. In fact, several liberal groups hosted rallies this weekend, to coerce Congress to finally pass articles of impeachment against the president. They were hoping thousands of outraged Americans would show up and demand action. It didn’t turn out that way. Even President Trump had to comment on the results.

Most patriots can’t understand why Democrats want to impeach Trump. Especially now, after the Mueller report has come out and dashed any chances of accusing Trump of collusion. No evidence has even been found to prove the left’s claim that Trump worked with Russia or tried to obstruct justice.

At this point, any Democrat left trying to push impeachment sounds like a desperate, crazy, and out-of-touch nutjob.

Enter MoveOn.org. This left-wing group (which was founded in the 90s to prevent Bill Clinton from getting impeached) still holds onto the dream that Trump will be impeached, removed from office, and thrown in jail. To that end, they organized rallies across the country to muster their ranks. These rallies were about demanding Congress to get off their butts and finally impeach POTUS 45. I guess they expected massive crowds, enough to inspire congressmen and congresswomen to do something.

MoveOn.org kicked off a nationwide campaign to impeach President Donald Trump Saturday with a series of “#ImpeachTrump” rallies and a “Day of Action” meant to inspire the far left to pressure Congressional legislators to undertake impeachment proceedings…

The Washington Times reports that MoveOn.org expected massive turnout at 120 events in cities and towns throughout the country…

MoveOn partnered with around two dozen organizations on the event, including activist group, Indivisible, the national Women’s March, Democracy for America, and CREDO, and looped in celebrities like Chelsea Handler and members of the cast and crew of “Modern Family” to help promote the event.

Wow, Modern Family! Then there must have been thousands of Americans just champing at the bit to attend these events! On top of that, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, a woman as hated as Ilhan Omar or AOC, was going to attend the event in her district.

I’m sure they had record numbers of attendees for event city.

Or… not.

But if their intent was to create the impression that hundreds of thousands of Americans stood at the ready to impeach President Donald Trump, the effort failed miserably. Across the country, turnout was sparse, even in dedicated leftist strongholds.

Attendance was laughably bad. From New York to Portland to Detroit, these “ImpeachTrump” rallies couldn’t get bigger than a few dozen—if they got that much at all.

Keep in mind, MoveOn.org is an organization devoted to holding rallies. That’s all they do. And they couldn’t get enough Americans out to impeach the president.

What to know why? Because Americans aren’t interested in impeaching a man who has scored one win after another. Donald Trump has actually worked to fulfill every last one of his campaign promises. He’s slashed taxes and regulation, restored America’s energy independence, brought back jobs, landed new trade deals, killed off Obama-era madness, and is even addressing the Southern border.

Our GDP is up. Unemployment is so down, it’s breaking decades-long records. Food stamp and welfare enrollment is dropping. I can go on.

Americans, even liberals, would be insane to want to impeach a man doing so much good.

Even the president had to comment on the “big turnout” at these rallies.

For years, Democrats’ biggest strength was holding protests and rallies. The media would make a big deal about these gatherings and even lawmakers would feel compelled to listen to them. Today? They can’t even muster a few hundred in a major city. Donald Trump is doing so well, Democrats can’t get people to protest him anymore.

Add to that the enthusiasm seen at Trump rallies and among his supporters, the left might want to bow out of the next election right now.
