House Freedom Caucus Leads on Immigration While Rand Paul Falls Short

Published

on

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), while positioning himself as President Trump’s top ally on foreign policy, has become a thorn in Trump’s side on immigration. He announced yesterday that he will join RINO Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) to block Trump’s declaration of an emergency at the southern border.

“I can’t vote to give the president the power to spend money that hasn’t been appropriated by Congress,” Paul said according to the Bowling Green Daily News.

“We may want more money for border security, but Congress didn’t authorize it. If we take away those checks and balances, it’s a dangerous thing,” he added.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) has joined Paul in his crusade against emergency measures that would help secure the border.

“There is a crisis at our border, but it’s not an emergency when Congress doesn’t spend money how the President wants. The President’s constitutional remedy is to veto spending bills that aren’t suitable to him, yet he has chosen to sign many bills that did not fund the wall,” Massie said in a Tweet.

The leaders of the House Freedom Caucus are taking a different position. They are standing with the President as he addresses the crisis at the southern border that threatens the future of US sovereignty.

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) is firmly behind the President.

“What is it going to take before people say that this is serious and we need a border security wall, like what was campaigned on, like the American people elected the President and so many other people to to actually get that done,” said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH). “I think the President has been right on target and I support him 100 percent.”

While the House Freedom Caucus leads on this issue, there is one notable exception within that caucus who is standing against the President: Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI). Amash was the only Republican House sponsor of the Democrats’ resolution to prevent Trump’s emergency powers declaration, and has emerged as the most belligerent of any intra-party opposition to Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda.

“I think the President is violating our constitutional system,” Amash said during an appearance on CNN’s Jake Tapper on his State of the Union program. “And I don’t think Congress can grant legislative powers to the President by statute. You can’t just pass a statute that says: the President now has appropriations power and bypass Congress.”

Amash is now being heavily rumored as a possible Libertarian Party presidential candidate in 2020 to oppose Trump. If Paul and Massie want to remain in the fight against the totalitarian left to Make America Great Again, they would be wise to take cues from Jordan and Meadows rather than Amash.

INSANE: Engineer Ran Train Off Tracks to Damage Coronavirus HOSPITAL SHIP

An unthinkable act of possible terrorism.

Published

on

A Los Angeles engineer reportedly derailed a train, sending it in the direction of the hospital ship USNS Mercy with the hopes of damaging the vessel Tuesday.

Eduardo Moreno of San Pedo is being charged with one count of train wrecking.

Prosecutors are claiming that Moreno was intentionally trying to damage the hospital ship. They allude to the possibility of Moreno being a conspiracy theorist of some sort, evidently believing that the hospital ship was going to be used for nefarious purposes.

Moreno is said to have crashed a Pacific Harbor Line train, running it off the rails and sending it careening through a barricade to the Port of Los Angeles’ docks. The train crashed through several barriers and fences, crossing over two gravel parking lots. It ceased moving before reaching the Mercy, coming to rest just before the Vincent Thomas Bridge.

No one was injured from the derailing of the train, but a leakage of fuel from the machine required a hazmat team to respond to the incident.

Moreno allegedly told investigators that he was “suspicious” of the ship, not believing that “the ship is what they say it’s for.” The locomotive engineer reportedly went on to say that “you only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to. People don’t know what’s going on here. Now they will.

A Department of Justice press release on Moreno’s arrest and criminal charge describes the man as admitting to derailing the train with the intention of damaging the ship.

The Mercy docked at the Port of Los Angeles over the weekend. The vessel in present in the area to assist in containment measures for the Chinese coronavirus epidemic, in a similar fashion to the hospital ship USNS Comfort’s presence in New York City.

Derailing a train with the intention of damaging a hospital ship is an extreme criminal act, to put it lightly. The incident may have possible terrorist ramifications if it’s made clear that Moreno wanted to damage the ship for overt political purposes.

Big League Politics will continue to monitor this situation.

UPDATE:

Video surfaced of the halted train and the damage it inflicted on the municipal docks on Tuesday.
