rule book is a 1,400 page document that is the byproduct of several
dozen Facebook employees who gather every other Tuesday to brainstorm
rules outlining acceptable speech. As the The New York Times recently reported,
the employees brainstorm rules over acceptable speech and those
guidelines are then sent out to over 7,500 moderators around the world.
However, as Clarion Project has also reported, many Facebook
employees are young and often unable to find nuance in conversation.
As Jasmin Mujanovic, an expert on the Balkans, toldThe Daily Caller:
Facebook’s role has become so hegemonic, so monopolistic,
that it has become a force unto itself. No one entity, especially not a
for-profit venture like Facebook, should have that kind of power to
influence public debate and policy.
The takeover is complete. This is as outrageous as it is ridiculous. How
can “Palestine” lead the largest bloc of United Nation member states
when it isn’t even a country? Nor does it have anything to contribute:
it has no industry, no production of anything other than genocidal
Jew-hatred and jihad violence. This is yet another example of how the UN
is no longer committed to anything but condemning and harassing Israel.
And the UN General Assembly held a special vote to temporarily elevate
the Palestinians’ status at the UN, of course. There isn’t any depth of
appeasement or accommodation of pro-jihad, pro-sharia forces to which
the UN will not sink.

EXAM: The confirmation hearing for William Barr, President Trump's
nominee to be the nation's next attorney general, will begin Tuesday,
and it may resemble an audition stage for Democrats hoping to run for president in 2020 ... Several Democratic senators thought to be potential presidential contenders in 2020
-- including Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and Amy Klobuchar -- are set
to grill Barr. Although the 68-year-old nominee is expected to
ultimately win confirmation in the Republican-controlled Senate,
Tuesday's questioning affords Democrats another major opportunity to
send sparks flying and promote their own White House ambitions.
Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., the new chairman of the Judiciary Committee,
will oversee the hearing. Barr's views on Special Counsel Robert
Mueller's Russia probe will be a major topic, and he is expected to tell
the committee that he believes Mueller should be permitted to conclude
his investigation and that the findings should be made public.

"Some have suggested a barrier is immoral. Then why do
wealthy politicians build walls, fences and gates around their homes?
They don’t build walls because they hate the people on the outside,
but because they love the people on the inside."
- President Donald J. Trump in his Oval Office address to
the nation, January 8, 2019
He walked out of the meeting.
President Trump” is all I can say as one can only beat their
head against a brick wall just so many times. And in this case that
brick wall was and remains House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi and
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer...two very rotten peas in the
same uber liberal, America-hating, illegal-loving, and oh so
And said walk-out happened during
President Trump's White House meeting with Democrat party leaders a
day after his Oval Office speech where he presented his case for why
a wall must be built while at the same time highlighting the human
cost of what he called the "ever growing humanitarian and security
crisis" of still ongoing illegal immigration.
First, know that President Trump, for
the most part, presented his case well even with his what I'll call a
deliberate or otherwise “slip of the tongue” where in the
speech's beginning he said “illegal migration” instead of
either “illegal immigration” or “illegal invasion”
(which truthfully is exactly what it is), and where he did not
tell America the real reason why Democrats refuse to fund the
wall...as in they will lose the illegals votes...it is all about
votes after all.
Instead, Trump pointing out the very many
tangible and pressing reasons why the wall must be built... including
reasons ranging the gamut from the fact that by building the wall it
would help close the “pipeline” that permits "vast
quantities of illegal drugs” to cross our border and that
"Every week, 300 of our citizens are killed by heroin alone –
90 percent of which floods across from our southern border"...to
the still unfolding humanitarian crisis where children are being used
as human pawns by “vicious coyotes and ruthless gangs,” and
to where one in three women are sexually assaulted on the dangerous
trek up through Mexico. And our president added to that by saying,
“Women and children are the biggest victims by far of our broken
while saying those very words proves PresidentTrump's
heart surely is in the right place, he did, however, miss a golden
opportunity to say for all to hear that it's not our system that is
broken and that there would be no so-called “victims” of
those wanting into our country, if those wanting in honored the
process and came here legally by following our already on-the-books
immigration laws. But then again without an invasion...a Democrat
initiated and funded invasion...how could said Democrats garner such
a massive all-at-one-time voting block if not for the promised
freebies and handouts in exchange for the illegals votes. A catch 22
situation if ever there was one.
However, for me the highlight of his entire speech came not when
President Trump listed the reasons why the wall must be built...we
Republicans and Conservatives already know those reasons well...but
when he spoke of the American victims of this illegal invasion. Now
hitting home the very core reason of why this invasion must be stopped at
all costs...as in the health, safety, and welfare of American
citizens...something Democrats could care less about...President
Trump simply and rightfully put Americans over illegals...as the way
it should always be...and he did so by paying tribute to the almost
3,000 law-abiding American citizens killed...murdered...by illegal
immigrants, including recently murdered, in cold blood, California
police Cpl. Ronil Singh, whose death we Republicans rightfully blame
on California's sanctuary laws...laws that prevent local law
enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration authorities.
Saying, "America’s heart broke the day after Christmas
when a young police officer in California was savagely murdered in
cold-blood by an illegal alien who just came across the border...the
life of an American hero was stolen by someone who had no right to be
in our country." President Trump also reflected back on the
dozens of “Angel Families” he's personally met with whose
loved ones were “stolen by illegal immigration."
Adding, “How much more American blood must be shed before
Congress does its job?" saw President Trump laying down the
gauntlet which led to the a fore mentioned Situation Room meeting last
Wednesday that he walked out of.
And why exactly did he walk...because when President Trump asked,
“what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up,
are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or
Steel Barrier?”...House Speaker Nancy Pelosi flat out stated in
no uncertain terms, “NO.” So once again Nancy Pelosi
rejected supporting any and all funding for the wall with any
compromise on the Democrats part now also out of the question, thus
leaving her rejection to mean that the 25% of the government
currently closed...all nonessential services by the way...will remain
closed but for how long is anybody's guess.
Hope Nancy Pelosi and her ilk now realize exactly who is calling
the shots in the this obscene chess game over the much needed
wall...and it sure isn't her or her cohort Senate Minority Leader
Chuck Schumer, that much I can safely say. And dare we not forget that
back in February 2016, both voted to approve then-President Obama's
sending of what in the end amounted to a half-a-billion dollars of
our hard earned taxpayer monies to Jordan to help fund their building
of a wall between themselves and Syria in order to keep so-called
refugees, ISIS, and other terrorist groups out of their country.
Ironic isn't it that a muslim country...a country whose king is
directly tied to the Muslim Brotherhood... saw these two miscreants
helping to keep them safe but America and Americans they won't help
keep safe. Says a lot now doesn't it, and President Trump needs to
bring this out in the public venue...a tweet or two wouldn't hurt now
And President Trump should also speak and tweet about how Chuck
Schumer back in 2009 was a huge supporter and proponent of not only strong border
security but of legal immigration alone. Basically mimicking then what Trump is now proposing sees partisan politics being the main reason why Democrats oppose securing the border today.
And here, just a few years ago, Chuck Schumer calls illegal aliens "criminals" just like President Trump and many of we Republicans do today.
So with President Trump rightfully calling last Wednesday's
meeting “a total waste of time”...after all meeting with hypocrites always are...and with Democrats still
bloviating that Trump is “manufacturing a crisis, stoking fear,
and diverting attention” away from what they insist is turmoil
within his administration, our president is now hard at work trying
to get that much needed wall built. And he's trying to do so even
without Congress giving him the $5.7 billion funding he is asking
“We're looking at a national emergency because we have a
national emergency." So said President Trump recently to a
group of reporters.
But the question is how can President Trump build the wall without
the needed Congressional monies?
The answer really is quite simple as in Trump's declaring a “national
emergency”...which legally as
president he surely can do...and then authorizing the wall to be
built by moving funds already appropriated for a specific purpose, but a
purpose those funds have yet to be used for, and “redirecting” those
funds to building the wall. And it just so happens that there is roughly
$20 billion for military construction projects just sitting there
with nary a construction project in sight, meaning Trump could
“redirect” those "unobligated funds" to building the wall as
that very money has already been appropriated by Congress.
Also, there’s a little-known section of the U.S. Code governing
the military that gives the defense secretary the authority to
undertake military construction projects “not otherwise
authorized by law” to support any troops deployed in a national
emergency requiring the use of the armed forces...and there are
indeed troops at our southern border.
But can President Trump simply declare a “national emergency”
let alone do a unilateral authorization and then shift the needed funds
from one designated area to a newly designated area?
Some legal scholars say no because Article I, Section 9 of the Constitution states that, “No money shall be
drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by
Law,” with no exception or even a reference to
"national emergencies." But there is also this point of view, "Congress chose not to put any substantial — or really
any — barriers on the president's ability to declare a national
emergency,"as perElizabeth Goitein, co-director of the Brennan Center for Justice's
Liberty and National Security Program.
So who is right...it really doesn't matter because in 1950, Congress gave presidents a
“lump sum of money” to be used at the president’s
discretion during times of a “national emergency,” including during times of war and/or natural catastrophes. And the
1950's law specifically mentions civil defense situations as awar situation, and really what is the ongoing illegal
invasion but a form of war...a "crisis" as President Trump called it in
his Oval Office address.
And at the very moment Trump would declare a “national
emergency,” he would be able to not only set aside many of the
current legal limits placed on his authority, but be granted access
to special powers...powers that allow him as president to bypass the
usual political process... powers that are contained in 136 different
provisions of law that Congress has passed over the years...96 of
which can be activated by the president alone. And this includes laws
allowing Trump to shut down many kinds of electronic communications
inside our country if he chose to do so...bet most didn't know that.
And then there's the National Emergencies Act of 1976, where under
this law...a law that gives no definition of what is or is not a
“national emergency”...President Trump would have complete
discretion to issue what's known as an “emergency declaration,”
but he must specify in the declaration which powers he intends to
use, issue public updates if he decides to invoke any of the granted
additional powers, and report to Congress on the government’s
emergency-related expenditures every six months. The state of
emergency would expire after a year unless Trump renews it, and the
Senate and the House must meet every six months while the emergency
is in effect “to consider a vote” on termination.
But even with all the above stated caveats involved, President Trump
does indeed have every legal right to tap into emergency presidential
powers thus bypassing Congress to access both the monies and the
resources needed to get the much needed wall built. And how it must
stick in the Democrats craw to know that even with their fighting
Trump every step of the way, in the end they will surely lose and the
wall will get built. And with their now being in control of the
House, Democrats will most assuredly try to block Trump from
his even declaring a “national emergency” even while knowing the
Republicans still control the Senate and will never go along with their
block...save for the likes of now Sen. Mitt Romney and one or two other senators
So as we now await President Trump's final decision as to whether
he will or will not declare a state of “national emergency,”
know that if he “can't make a deal with people that are
unreasonable," that a state of “national emergency”
could easily be declared by this week's end.
President Donald J. Trump...the man who is ever so skilled in making deals...the man who took an oath to protect the health, safety, and welfare of "We the American People," might just
pull this off and get the wall built post-haste. And he'll do it not because he
wants to rub it in the faces of the Democrats, but because he knows
well it's what "We the People" want and what "We the People" need to
keep both our homeland and American citizens safe and free.
