I don’t know if you watched Donald Trump’s address to the nation last night, or the “Democrat Response” by Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi that followed. Here’s my takeaway.
First of all, it was nice to see the president using a more traditional medium to reach the American public. I’ve never been a fan of the Tweets. I understand he uses it as his “bully pulpit”, but he has TV still for that. What he said was true. You can’t have a country that doesn’t have and protect borders. It is not only a national security issue, it’s a humanitarian crisis. It is a very large part of the decline of America that is taking place, and yes, I personally blame the liberals in this country for it. Without a secure border, we are nothing. And for Democrats to think that there aren’t terrorists who want to do us harm coming across with those illegals from Central America is poppycock.
As for the Democrats’ response, I was appalled. To call what the president outlined “fake news” was a travesty of justice. It was un-American, it was un-patriotic, and it was bordering on treason. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer knowingly aided and abetted the enemies of the United States last night with their ramblings. And they did so on national television. Both should be arrested, charged, tried, and convicted of treason and serve the penalty that fits such a crime.
Liberals who tell me that it’s “racist” and “jingoist” to have a border wall have no idea what reality is. Just look at the number of people in our country who have been killed by people that don’t have the right to be here. It’s amazing! Think about the illegal drugs that pour into this country because of illegal aliens that cross our porous border like walking into a Walmart, and poison our loved ones, our neighbors, our friends, and our co-workers.
I know for a fact that Donald Trump has drawn a George H.W. Bush “Read my lips, no new taxes” line in the sand that could very well cost him re-election in 2020 if he doesn’t stick to his promise. And I hope and pray that he sticks to it for as long as it takes. He not only needs to stick to it, he needs to double down. He needs to declare the illegal border crossing a national emergency, and close the border with Mexico, giving the Border Patrol orders to shoot to kill anyone crossing the border. We’ve seen that getting tough slows the border crossings to a crawl. If these illegals learn that they risk getting killed by crossing the border, the risk becomes greater than the reward and they won’t come (as much).
Build the wall, and get tough with illegals. If California wants them, let them secede from the union, start their own country, and they can do whatever they want. Then we can build the wall from Arizona and Nevada north to Oregon and west to the Pacific Ocean.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed.
