In his campaign for President, Donald Trump made building the wall across the southern border with Mexico his signature pledge. In fact, it started on the first day of his presidential campaign when Trump highlighted the problems of illegal immigration. He famously said, “When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best... They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with [them]. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” These remarks led to a swift backlash as he was denounced by Macy’s, Univision, NBC among other corporate giants.
So often, I hear my pro-Trump defenders claim the media hates him, they are evil, fake newsers and enemies of the people.
I try to tell them that yes, the media is biased against Trump, but for good reasons. He lies or exaggerates so often that the media is simply challenging his or his administration comments, to get the facts.
That’s what they do. That's their job. It is also human nature. When you know that someone is not being honest, you make extra efforts to get to the truth.
Now that the mid-terms are over, and the new Congress has started, political observers have already started to focus on the 2020 presidential campaign. Every election, it begins earlier, especially in this case because the Democrats and their supporters in the media are obsessed with defeating President Donald Trump.
The hatred from the left for Donald Trump is off the charts and it is getting worse all the time. This anger is fueling the 2020 presidential contest for Democrats and, as a result, contenders are moving to the far left to pick up support.
In 2016, the American people elected Donald Trump as the President of the United States. His top campaign pledge was to build a border wall. It was the most popular slogan at his rallies and at the GOP 2016 Convention in Cleveland.
After two years of waiting, it is time for the President to deliver on his pledge. Of course, nothing happened with the Republicans in charge of Congress and nothing is happening now that the Democrats control the House of Representatives. Despite years of strong statements advocating a wall and border security, top Democrats are adamantly opposed to giving President Trump any funds for a border wall. It has been called “racist,” “immoral,” and “ineffective,” among other highly critical comments.
So you want to know how we should fix this crazy DC shutdown?
I'm glad you asked. It's really simple. It's amazing that the protagonists just don't see it the way I do. Here’s the plan:
First, let me side with the Democrats on the proposition that we shut down the shutdown. We can get the FDA working, our airports out of fear, our government contractors paid and all of the many obligations that the federal government has assumed now for decades, back on the job.
The 116th Congress will be one for the record books, but not in a positive way. Already, one member of Congress, U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), has used a vulgar expletive to refer to the President of the United States. Her vow to “impeach the mother…er” was greeted by cheers from a group of progressive supporters at a reception Thursday night. This type of insult is certainly unprecedented in recent political history.
We’re hitting the last day of 2018, with thousands of men and women on furlough or staying on their jobs without pay due to a government shutdown. Wouldn’t it be nice if, just for one last day of 2018, we could make sense of this border wall debate separating them from their paychecks?
Can't we, as a New Year's resolution, make up our mind that common sense and facts prime over politics?
After all, we’re talking about The Wall.

Just when you think it can’t possibly get more bizarre with this POTUS….it does.
Leaving on Christmas night, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump made a surprise visit to American troops serving in Iraq. It was a trip that made a very positive impact on the troops, who warmly greeted the President and Mrs. Trump. Not surprisingly, the visit drew criticism from the liberal media because some of the troops displayed “Make America Great Again” hats and asked the President to sign them. Of course, the same liberal media said nothing when then President Barack Obama signed his picture for our troops.
Isn’t it interesting?
Some of the same people who excoriated President Barack Obama for pulling the troops out of Iraq are now either silent or are applauding President Trump’s yanking our military out of Syria, immediately. Oh, and soon, out of Afghanistan.
Back then, Trump led the charge. Every opportunity, he blamed Obama for taking steps that were feckless and weak
In November of 2016, the American people elected Donald Trump to be our nation’s 45th President. He campaigned on a platform of bringing our troops back home from Syria and Afghanistan and focusing on an “America First” foreign policy. By announcing he was removing our 2,000 troops from Syria, the President is following through on another campaign promise.
The politicians in Washington D.C. have failed the American people time and time again. This is especially true on the important issue of border security. The “Deep State” in Washington D.C. does not care that our country has possibly 30 million illegal immigrants. While there has been inaction on the glaring problem of border security, Congress has tried numerous times over the years to make it easier for illegal aliens to enter the United States and become American citizens. It took a massive effort of grassroots conservatives to defeat “immigration reform” legislation during the presidency of George W. Bush.
Last night, the controversy surrounding President Donald Trump, Robert Mueller and his pick for Attorney General got more confusing and more combative.
Here are the details:
Should Vietnamese who came into the United States, fleeing communist control and devastation of Vietnam or other circumstances prior to the resumption of diplomatic relations in 1995 be subject to deportation?
The Trump administration says yes and claims that the focus is upon certain Vietnamese who have committed violent crimes, but appears to be interpreting current law to expand the population of Vietnamese who might be eligible for deportation.
