Pinkerton: AOC vs. RWR

If Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or anyone, attacks Ronald Wilson Reagan, it is fitting and proper for loyal Reaganites, including this one, to rise to the Gipper’s defense.  Ocasio-Cortez, of course, is suddenly one of the most influential Democrats in the country.  Yes, she’s only a freshman Member of Congress, and so she has relatively little formal power, and yet she speaks for a large and growing faction of Democrats.  Indeed, she’s a formidable media phenomenon, boasting, at last count, 3.5 million Twitter followers.  (House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has just 2.3…

Twelve Senate Republicans voted in favor of a Democrat resolution to end President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration.

The bill passed through the Senate as well as the House; however, both times the resolution did not receive enough votes to override a presidential veto. President Trump has already threatened to veto the legislation. Although most Senate Republicans voted with the president and affirmed both his constitutional authority and his initiative to secure America’s southern border through a…

In Ernst’s remarks, the Iowa Republican noted how the plan would cost $10 trillion more than the combined Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of every nation on Earth and how it would also exceed the total spending of the U.S.…

Washington Post: Democrats Hid Their Border Security Wins from Trump

Democratic leaders directed their deputies on the 2019 border security panel to hide their negotiating victories from President Donald Trump, according to the Washington Post. The Post reported on the border deal: Democrats, privately, were amused but made a conscious decision not to gloat — concerned that if they celebrated what they considered a victory Thursday they might anger Trump enough to veto the deal. One conferee summarized the instructions from Democratic leaders: “Don’t poke the bear.” The Democrats followed the same ‘don’t gloat yet’ strategy in 2015 as they blocked then-House Speaker Paul…

Klukowski: President Trump Must Ensure Spending Bill Does Not Cancel Emergency Powers

The White House should be extremely cautious in studying every single word in Congress’s spending bill, because even a single phrase could negate every authority President Donald Trump currently has under federal law to build and fund the border wall, even canceling his authority to declare a national border emergency. Insiders around D.C. are talking about how the president can sign the spending bill that was unveiled this week, take the money that it authorizes for building a wall, then use executive authority to fund the rest of it. The…

During a speech on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) urged President Trump to sign the agreement reached by the immigration conference committee.

It’s time to bring the debate over border security back to reality. The reality is some 66,000 people have crossed our southern border illegally just since January first.

This tracker created by America First Policies shows that every 48 seconds someone tries to cross the southern border illegally outside a port of entry. The…
