As Expected, President Trump’s Wall Will Almost Certainly Go To The Supreme Court

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s Wall will almost certainly be won or lost in the Supreme Court of the United States, as close observers have always expected.

A new appeals court ruling Wednesday keeps Wall construction in Arizona and New Mexico stalled, even as Trump manages to piece together some Wall elsewhere around the border. Criticizing Trump for not yet finishing the Wall is unfair considering our President’s massive political fight to get the Wall done — and Trump always predicted that it would end up in the Supreme Court.

President Trump managed to set the record for longest government shutdown — staving off a manipulated Christmas Day near-stock market collapse in the process — and then declared a national emergency to build the Wall and vetoed both parties in both houses of Congress who passed a bill trying to block his national emergency.

Perhaps most importantly, President Trump has seated Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch on the highest court in the land.

President Trump always knew we were heading for the Supreme Court, which he said immediately after he declared his national emergency in February.

Bloomberg reports:

President Donald Trump, who campaigned in 2016 on a promise to build a wall, is expected to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene. The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

The president initially sought $5.6 billion for the wall but Democrats in Congress refused, sparking a 35-day partial government shutdown. After Congress authorized $1.38 billion for border security, Trump declared a national emergency on Feb. 15 — citing a surge in attempted crossings by immigrants — and said he would get the funding he needed elsewhere.

A judge in Oakland, California, issued an order in May that temporarily blocked a pair of border construction projects in New Mexico and Arizona. On June 28, U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam expanded the injunction to cover four more projects, and he also made the order permanent.

In Wednesday’s ruling, two of the appeals court judges concluded the president’s action violates Congress’s constitutional authority to spend taxpayer money. They also said that upholding Gilliam’s decision to halt construction won’t significantly alter conditions at the southern border, where immigration authorities say resources are strained by a surge of Central Americans seeking to enter the U.S.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
