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.
Biden Executive Order Terminates Construction of New Border Wall
President Joe Biden signed an executive order halting the construction of new border wall on the southern border in one of his first actions as President.
The order terminates an emergency proclamation that allowed discretion to divert federal funding towards wall construction.
“The proclamation will direct an immediate pause in wall construction projects to allow a close review of the legal basis for the funding, as well as the contract methods being used, and it will determine the best ways to redirect funds that were diverted by the Trump administration to fund wall construction,” said Biden’s National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.
The termination of wall construction comes as a Central American caravan numbering in the thousands travels through Honduras and Guatemala, with the intention of securing immigration amnesty from President Biden. The leaders of the caravan have cited Biden’s left-wing immigration promises as the imperative for its formation, demanding he honor what they see as promises of admittance.
Drug-cartel human smugglers are already chomping at the bit at the idea of resuming illegal immigration smuggling en masse during Biden’s presidency, assured that they’ll have free reign to infiltrate America’s borders in a manner akin to the state of affairs under previous establishment Presidents.
Biden also signed Trump’s executive order overturning a travel ban from several high-risk nations. Another executive order re-enrolls the United States into the globalist Paris Climate Accords, which mandates strict carbon emissions curbs on the United States without imposing similar requirements on China.
