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.

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.

Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016
Coulter tells it like it is.
Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.
Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.
Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.
As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.
Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.
She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.
also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”
She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.
The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.
Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
