McCain To Derail Border Wall Funding

Borderline traitorous Republican Senator John McCain and verified moonbat Democrat Chris Coons are pairing up to sabotage the president’s funding of a border wall.

Congress is expected this week to pass yet another short-term spending bill to avoid a government shutdown, prompting a bipartisan pair of senators to introduce a narrow bill on immigration aimed at ending the impasse that has hindered a two-year budget deal.

The government’s current funding expires at 12:01 a.m. Friday. Immigration has become entangled in the spending negotiations since President Donald Trump last year ended an Obama-era program that protects young people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, known as Dreamers.

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R., Ariz.) and Sen. Chris Coons (D., Del.) plan to unveil a proposal that offers a path to citizenship for Dreamers and orders a comprehensive study to determine what border-security measures are needed. But the bill stops well short of almost all of the president’s demands—including immediate funding for the wall along the southern border—and is likely to meet a chilly reception from conservative Republicans.

Mark Levin makes a big deal of this because it is a big deal. There is a difference between DACA people and “Dreamers.” DACA is a few hundred thousand, while the “Dreamers” number in the millions. Dickholes like McCain fool people into thinking they are all the same, but tell them, “No, it’s only a few hundred thousand.” It’s a Ponzi scheme, and far too many people fall for it.

The bottom line is this border wall is never getting funded, and the blame will lie (as always) with Republicans.

Wall Street

Despite the depressing posts seen here this week, there are a few heartwarming stories out there. Take this one, for example, which announces the beginning of the border wall construction.

The federal government said Tuesday that contractors began building eight prototypes of President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico, hitting a milestone toward a key campaign pledge.

Construction in San Diego began three months behind schedule after those who didn’t win contracts protested. The building process will last about 30 days, Customs and Border Protection said.

The agency may pick several winners, or none. It said in a news release that the prototypes ‘will inform future design standards which will likely continue to evolve to meet the U.S. Border Patrol’s requirements.’ The details of the design remain unclear. Each prototype will be up to 30 feet high and 30 feet long.

I sent an email to the White House suggesting machine gun nests every ten yards, but they have yet to respond.

Another Klick In The Wall

Despite all the doom and gloom the mainstream media is foisting upon us, there was some good news announced this week, and you don’t need to press two for English.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security said on Tuesday it would waive environmental and related laws in order to expedite building security-related barriers and roads along the nation’s border with Mexico near San Diego.

The projects would focus on about 15 miles (24 km) of the frontier extending eastward from the Pacific Ocean as part of President Donald Trump’s planned wall between the United States and Mexico, the DHS said in a statement. It said the area is one of the busiest U.S. border sections.

“The sector remains an area of high illegal entry for which there is an immediate need to improve current infrastructure and construct additional border barriers and roads,” the DHS said.

The department will oversee the installation of extra barriers, roads, lights, cameras and sensors on the border under the authority of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA) of 1996.

As far as I’m concerned, the builders can club baby seals and run over polar bears to make this happen. Environment be damned!

President Donald Trump announced the construction of a southern border wall would begin in months, and the planning for the barrier will begin at once.

In his first one-on-one television interview since being sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, President Donald Trump told ABC News anchor David Muir that Mexico would be paying for the proposed border wall and that negotiations between the two nations would begin “relatively soon.”

When asked about the start of construction, Trump said it would happen in “months.”

“As soon as we can, as soon as we can physically do it,” he said. “I would say in months, yeah. I would say in months — certainly planning is starting immediately.”

In the hours after the ABC News interview took place, Trump issued two executive orders, one of which is about the commission of the border wall. The order calls for the secretary of homeland security to “take all appropriate steps to immediately plan, design, and construct a physical wall along the southern border.”

So let’s recap: the president announced the plans for the wall, infuriated the media, and made millions of leftists’ heads explode in one simple interview? #Winning.

My immediate reaction to the news is below the fold.
