    Even if the President was asserting that "black is white," he could arrange to have a stage full of supporters that agreed with him!

    Sounds like a conspiracy.

    How soon the Liberals forget about the Congressional hearings on Acorn and other organizations illegally signing up people to vote, and all the instances of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck and dead people voting

    What happened to the wall...?

    Nancy Pelosi told Trump he wasn't going to get it. And after couple of tantrums, he sulked for a bit and did what he was told.

    Apparently, he's hoping that courts will let him bypass Congress's role in approving expenditures. Doesn't seem very likely, though.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    In spite of congressional obstruction, on March 27, the Pentagon handed the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) $1 billion – out of the $6.1 billion in defense funds – to build 57 miles of fencing. On April 9, the USACE awarded a $789 million fixed-price contract for barrier replacement in Santa Teresa (New Mexico) to SLS, and a $187 million design-bid-build contract for primary pedestrian wall replacement in Yuma (Arizona) to Barnard. These were the first contracts utilizing emergency declaration funds. Ten days later, on April 19, the USACE started prequalifying contractors for $8 billion in construction work. According to a construction industry news and analysis site, “the Pentagon is [now] ready to mobilize nearly the full emergency fund amount for projects which will include wall, levee, fencing, access roads, gates, repairs and more.”

    In late April 2019, DHS issued two waivers facilitating more rapid construction within the U.S. Border Patrol’s Yuma and El Paso sectors in Arizona and Texas. “The projects covered by the waivers include up to approximately 53 miles of new bollard wall in place of dilapidated and outdated designs, in addition to, road construction and improvement and lighting installation.” (The waivers were published in the Federal Register on April 24, 2019.)

    Conclusion

    In 2006, Congress required that a barrier be constructed. But the project was never completed as mandated, and much of the border wall/fence lies in disrepair or is built to subpar standards. With illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and human smuggling reaching historic levels, an ongoing problem, and the threat of terrorism ever increasing, it is critical that a proper security barrier be constructed.

    A physical barrier on the southern border is a necessity if our government wishes to meet its obligation to protect the sovereignty and security of the United States of America. Besides helping stem the tide of illegal immigration, it also limits the ability of drug cartels, human traffickers, terrorists, and other national security threats to access the United States from Mexico and the rest of Central and South America. Furthermore, a secure border sends the message that prospective immigrants are expected to follow the rule of law.

    Great to see you !!! I see you still think Trump is "staging" and "scripting" things but that's only because your side has been doing that for decades. The left MANUFACTURES news, stories and narratives so much that people think it;s real news. God help us all.

    What happened? Last I heard it's standing strong and growing. Good to see you're still trying to salvage what's left of your party. I understand the fact that you're too fragile to speak out anywhere else but TOL, but please. Do you think anybody on this site accepts a word you say?
