Muslim Congressional Member Controversy
In my view, the two Muslims recently elected as Congressional members are obviously anti-American, the Omar woman is blatantly anti-Semitic and anti-American, check her history. The Tlaib woman has the gall to say about our president: “we are going to impeach the mother fuc*er!” what in the hell is going on in our country? Now we are inviting our enemies into the legislative branch of government? To make law? The Omar bitch is on the Foreign Affairs committee…You must be kidding me…but no, it is now a reality. These leftists are ruining our country and their goal is to do just that. Is that what we want for our children and grandchildren? Really? Time to push back before it is too late.
A Bipartisan Budget Agreement Reached
On Monday evening it was announced by senior lawmakers that an agreement had been reached, in principle, to avoid a partial government shutdown this weekend. Funding for border security is minimal at $1.375 billion. Will President Trump sign or do we have another shutdown?…more to come this week as the story unfolds.
Thursday afternoon: I am watching Nancy Pelosi regurgitate. The president has agreed to sign the spending bill in order to keep the government open. He will also declare a national emergency to acquire funding for border security which Nancy declares to be a “national emergency in his own mind” or some bullshit to that effect. Are people not listening to the experts, those on the line at the border? Do they not consider the effectiveness of other borders around the world and in our own country? Are they not watching the videos of thousands heading to our borders to cross illegally? Of course not. Yet, they have ALL, in the past, campaigned for immigration reform and border security, now, because Donald Trump is actually DOING SOMETHING about it, it is immoral, what a line of crap. They want open borders to allow as many people in as possible, whom they expect to give taxpayer money…to gain votes. We must not let this happen!!!!!!!!!
Thursday evening in response to the national emergency declaration above, Nancy Pelosi threatened to use the same tactic to attack the 2nd Amendment. You want a national emergency? Go down that road and you will alienate a large population of the American people… it will not end well for leftists.

I will track these campaign promises and will check them off as each is accomplished adding those I have missed as they become apparent. This is quite an agenda and will be difficult to achieve all in one term, but I believe the American people are behind him and know these things need to be done. Now, if he can get our legislators to support him instead of fighting him….

TEDDY ROOSEVELT ON IMMIGRANTS IN AMERICA…1907
In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
