As President Trump continues to piece together a wall on the southern border, his top White House adviser Stephen Miller is making an urgent push to get the job done. Here is one of Stephen Miller’s finest moments from December, and a moment that should galvanize Miller’s fellow Republicans to build the Wall.
“If you want to stop the horrors on the northward trek, the rape that occurs, the abuse that occurs, and the death that occurs, then for the love of God fund the border wall!”

10 United States Code 284, “Support for counterdrug activities and activities to counter transnational organized crime,” allows President Donald Trump to direct the Secretary of Defense to secure the southern border with a wall, the Pentagon confirms.
“10 United States Code 284, which authorizes President Trump to deploy the military to the Southern border, and to do a lot of other things, and for clarity if you look it up in the dictionary the word fence and the word barrier includes walls of a variety of different materials. So having been said it seems to me that 10 USC 284 can be used by the United States to direct the United States military to build a wall,” Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama asked Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Policy John Rood.
“You are correct,” said Under Secretary of Defense for Policy John Rood. “That use of authority would authorize the Secretary of Defense to erect barriers, roads, fencing, those type of materials to disrupt drug smuggling.”
BREAKING: Roger Stone is a Free Man, President Trump Commutes Sentence
The story is developing.
On July 10, 2020, commentator John Cardillo reported that conservative operative Roger Stone received a commutation of his prison sentence from President Donald Trump.

Over the past few days, President Trump has considered commuting Roger Stone’s sentence a few days prior to his report to prison.
Stone is expected to report to a federal prison in Jesup, Georgia by July 14 where he will serve out a three year and four month prison sentence for allegedly lying under oath to U.S. elected officials during the politically contrived Russian interference investigation.
Trump has had a relationship with the Republican political operative for decades.
For some time, Trump has discussed the potential of commuting Stone’s sentence.
When asked by reporters earlier on July 10 about reports of his plan to pardon Stone, Trump remarked, “I’ll be looking at it. I think Roger Stone was very unfairly treated, as were many people.”
Reuters reported that back in November 2019, a “Washington jury convicted Stone on all seven criminal counts of obstruction of a congressional investigation, five counts of making false statements to Congress and tampering with a witness.”
The same report added that “Stone was convicted for lying to the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee about his attempts to contact WikiLeaks, the website that released damaging emails about Trump’s 2016 Democratic election rival Hillary Clinton that U.S. intelligence officials have concluded were stolen by Russian hackers.”
Stone’s commutation, while not a full-blown pardon that erases his conviction, is a solid victory for the Rule of Law.
