President Donald Trump’s stated desire to shut down the federal government over the Democrats’ refusal to fund his border wall galvanized Trump’s supporters after a prolonged stretch of relative malaise.
The shutdown is set for December 22, and the Trump White House is making it pretty clear that they don’t intend on wasting time with a quickie “stopgap” budget measure to prevent the move. President Trump wants $5 billion to complete his Wall to stop illegal immigrants from hopping our border fences, as some members of the media-celebrated caravan recently did.
As the possible shutdown nears, the Washington political class is clamoring for intel on what the Commander in Chief will decide to do. Sadly for them, Trump is refusing to show his hand — much like Generals Patton and MacArthur. Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale said that “fewer reporters know what is going on because @realdonaldtrump has figured out who the leakers are. Isolation is actually cleaning up the leaks.”
There is a lot of media chatter about Trump’s supposed blunder in taking credit for the shutdown, during his awesome trick-play confrontation of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, because the conventional thinking in Washington is that shutdowns are bad and parties should blame the other side for them. Despite the MAGA base’s enthusiasm for the shutdown, President Trump appeared to adopt some of that rhetoric in his recent address without backing off an inch from the concept of shutting it down.

Immigration adviser Stephen Miller appeared on Face the Nation Sunday to proclaim that the White House will do whatever is necessary to get the Wall. Presumably, a government shutdown falls under the umbrella of whatever is necessary.

Cartoonist Ben Garrison spoke for MAGA Nation in celebrating Trump’s maneuver of inviting the press into his White House smackdown of Pelosi and Schumer. Trump supporters are clearly very enthusiastic about the White House’s willingness to go on offense.

“Government shutdowns are the biggest nothing out there,” said Trump 2020 Advisory Board member Tony Shaffer in response to my recent article This Government Shutdown Is Going To Be AWESOME. “When they happen it only shows how much of the government is not needed as life goes on and demonstrates the need to cut ‘services.’ So yeah, bring on the huge shutdown!”
New acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, formerly a conservative congressman, made it clear months ago that a “good shutdown” could fix #ThisTown.
Arizona Border Patrol Officer Stabbed Multiple Times, Shoots and Kills Criminal Alien
A Border Patrol officer patrolling the US-Mexico border shot and killed a man who stabbed him multiple times in Southern Arizona on Monday night.
CBP officials reported that the unnamed agent was patrolling near the transnational city of Nogales, Arizona, when he encountered a group of individuals he suspected to be aliens entering the country illegally. One man accompanying them group attacked the agent when he sought to apprehend the aliens, stabbing him multiple times.
The CBP agent went on to fatally shoot the alien, who may have been a smuggler moving a group of illegal migrants across the border. Deputies of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office were called to provide backup, and the Border Patrol agent that was stabbed had to be airlifted to a Tucson hospital early on Tuesday morning. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital later the same day.
Cartel-affiliated criminal smugglers have increasingly sought to infiltrate the United States in Arizona, hoping to avoid a buffed border patrol presence in Texas and new wall construction in the most trafficked areas of the border.
Preliminary reports indicate that the Border Patrol agent may have been alone when he encountered the smuggler’s group of criminal aliens, a hazard that has resulted in violent attacks on Border Patrol agents by cartel-affiliated criminals before.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident. It’s unclear if the group of aliens encountered by the agent have been expelled under special coronavirus immigration regulations, transferred into the custody of immigration detention, or simply allowed to proceed into the country.
