HOUSE WIN: We’re Getting A Chance At The Wall

Published

on

President Donald Trump scored a quick important victory Thursday as the House of Representatives rejected the continuing resolution that would have blocked the president from getting any money for his border Wall.

The House voted 187-170 to block that weak continuing resolution, and now there’s a new bill that includes $5.7 billion for “U.S. Customs and Border Protection — Procurement, Construction, and Improvements.”

Here is the relevant section of the awesome new bill, which is being evaluated by the House Rules Committee as America tunes in, mad with anticipation for what will happen next in this epic showdown to save Washington.

This semi-final win comes after a late-night power play by the Freedom Caucus, which seized the House floor, and by President Donald Trump making it very clear via Twitter and his address Thursday that he will veto any spending bill that does not give him his Wall.

President Donald Trump stood firm on the Wall in his remarks Thursday before signing the Farm Bill, demanding that Congress fund his Wall — which they don’t even need to necessarily call a Wall, they can call it “Steel Slats” so long as it gets done.

“Any measure that funds the government must include border security. It has to. Not for political purposes but for our Country,” said President Trump, indicating that he is prepared to shut down the federal government by Friday’s deadline for passing a weakly “stopgap” spending bill with no Wall funding.

“A country without borders is a country not at all,” President Trump said. “I will not surrender this nation to criminal organizations…human trafficking and mass drug inflow must also be stopped.”

“It is our sacred obligation. We have no choice. For decades Washington abandoned this commitment…It was a total assault on our democracy itself.”

“More than 90 percent of heroin comes across our southern border,” President Trump said.

‘WHAT A DISASTER:’ Iowa Caucus Results Delayed in Vote Count Catastrophe

The nation is left with more questions than answers on the night of the Iowa Caucus.

Published

on

The Iowa Caucus was intended to kick off the Democratic Presidential primary by highlighting candidates with a credible shot of winning the nomination.

Instead, the first-in-the nation caucus seems to be more representative of the Democratic Party’s incompetence, after results for the caucus are delayed for an unforeseen “quality assurance” tabulation process. The development has many election hawks and Democrats howling mad, with many suspecting the DNC is dipping into its bag of old tricks with the hopes of blunting or preventing a Bernie Sanders victory in the caucus.

There are many reports of caucus precinct coordinators being totally ignored when trying to report the results of their local caucuses to the Iowa Democratic Party. At least one caucus organizer was outright hung up on by the party when he called in to report results- while speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer live on air.

The mass of confusion is being traced to the failure of an app designed to report results. Iowa Democrats simply explained the unusual delay as the result of “inconsistencies,” offering little to no in depth explanation for what seems to be third world election practices.

Although we’re inexplicably left without any vote tallies the night of the election, exit polls and crowd sizes suggest that polling frontrunner Sanders has a strong chance to win. Pete Buttigieg also appears set for a strong second place performance. Sanders expressed confidence in a strong performance when addressing his supporters in the state.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appears slated for an embarrassment, outright failing to advance to the “viable” stage in many precinct and regional caucus. It’s not entirely impossible that Biden finishes fourth in the primary, a surprise development that would leave the candidate many assumed to be an easy frontrunner for the Democratic nomination struggling as he lags to New Hampshire and later primary states.

MSNBC talking heads could be overheard referring to the caucus as a “disaster” in a some capacity in leaked audio.

As of late Monday night, the Iowa Democratic Party is yet to report any vote results, let alone declare a winner. Big League Politics is continuing to monitor the situation.
