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.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

Published

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
