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.

Angel Families March on Nancy Pelosi’s Office: ‘Build That Wall’

Angel families stormed into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office again Wednesday with calls to secure the U.S. southern border, but they were turned away yet again. Americans whose loved ones have been killed by illegal aliens flooded into the office with questions as to why their many requests for meetings with the Speaker went unanswered.

I’m not happy about it. It’s not doing the trick,” Trump said during a cabinet meeting at the White House when asked if he would sign the deal.

The Nuclear Option: State of the Union? Gosnell Could Be Virginia Governor

Last week, a major political party in America openly embraced legislation to legalize elective abortion during live human birth. Previously, such infanticidal horrors had been glimpsed only in murder trials of monsters like Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelphia abortionist serving a life sentence for murdering three babies at birth. In this modern Democratic Party, Gosnell could serve as Virginia governor — at least he would not have a history with blackface. Perhaps he could even be the party’s nominee for president in 2020. This week, the same Democratic Party has openly and emphatically embraced…

Klein: Trump Respects Independence of Intel Agencies While Obama Politicized Them

NEW YORK — Amid the flurry of news media coverage surrounding President Donald Trump’s criticism of the U.S. intelligence community, it may be instructive to recall the Obama administration was repeatedly accused of politicizing the country’s intelligence agencies to advance its own foreign policy agenda. This while Trump has said that while he may disagree with some of the Intel community’s assessments, he respects the independence of those same agencies. The uproar began last week, when Trump pushed back after U.S. agencies issued an annual report on global threats claiming…
