Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert of Texas applauded President Trump’s decision to use the national emergency option to build the southern border wall.
“Today President Trump used his existing and clear legal authority to declare a national emergency at the Southern Border. Right now, there is a blatant invasion happening at our border. The influx of illegal immigration places the lives of Americans at risk by bringing in deadly drugs, ongoing violence and heinous sex trafficking. Sadly, cartels, drug traffickers and dangerous gangs have taken advantage of our porous borders for their own profit. This must end now,” Gohmert said.
“Thankfully, we have a President who understands that it is vital that we take the appropriate action needed to secure this country with a border barrier. Once again, President Trump is keeping his promises to the American people. It is important to note that since 1976, U.S. Presidents have declared nearly 60 national emergencies. As most Democrats in Congress have said at one time or another in other situations, this executive action is necessary for our own national security as the humanitarian thing to do. The State of Texas should also consider a similar declaration,” Gohmert said.
“It is unfortunate and frankly appalling that some Democrats in Congress have obstructed our Commander-in-Chief from securing this nation’s borders. They have clearly placed their political agenda before the protection of precious American lives. That is absolutely atrocious. America and her citizens deserve to have a homeland that is secure, and all of us in Congress have a duty to provide that security. We can be thankful we have a President who takes that same obligation to heart,” Gohmert said.
President Donald Trump declared a national emergency on February 15, 2019 to secure America’s southern border with a big magnificent border Wall.
With this declaration, President Trump makes it clear that he defends our national sovereignty and is committed to securing the border from the many gangs and known or suspected terrorists who pour into the country. The declaration gives Trump as Commander in Chief broad powers to secure the entire border region.
Much of the Wall is already built, and much more of it is getting built privately.
President Trump plans to re-allocate billions of dollars from other ventures including in Puerto Rico to build the Wall.
“We fight wars that are six thousand miles away, wars that we should have never been in, in many cases, but we don’t control our own border. So we are going to confront the national security crisis on our southern border,” President Trump stated.
Here is President Trump’s wartime address:
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
