WINNING: Court Ruling Gives Trump Administration the Green Light in Using $3.6 Billion in Military Funds for Border Wall

Published

on

On Wednesday, a federal appeals court ruled that President Donald Trump can now use military funds for the construction of a wall along the southern border.

In a 2-1 decision, the New Orleans-based Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court’s ruling that blocked the spending.

The judges who ruled in favor of the decision were Trump and Reagan appointees and the judge who opposed it was an Obama appointee, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

Although the case can still be appealed, this ruling was a solid win for President Trump.

The case can still be appealed further, but the ruling was a win for Trump’s America First agenda. Trump vigorously campaigned on the promise of building a border wall.

Trump praised the ruling in a tweet Thursday morning, emphasizing that a border wall is “desperately” needed.

Trump tweeted, “Breaking News: The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals just reversed a lower court decision & gave us the go ahead to build one of the largest sections of the desperately needed Southern Border Wall, Four Billion Dollars. Entire Wall is under construction or getting ready to start!”

This ruling overturns a Texas judge’s action in December that stopped the use of military funds for the border wall, declaring that the $3.6 billion in military funds could not be used for the construction project.

Back in early 2019, Trump stood firm by refusing to sign a spending bill that did not include border wall funding. In doing so, Trump shut down the federal government for 35 days.

This is welcome news for America First and should be properly followed up with reforms on chain migration and birthright citizenship.

Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”

Tanden is a controversial Democrat.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.

Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,

Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.

However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
