by Al Weaver

{washingtonexaminer.com} ~ Senate Minority Leader Chuck scumbag/clown-Schumer told Vice President Mike Pence on Friday that there’s no chance the Senate will approve… any wall funding in a bill to keep the government open past midnight. “Leader scumbag/clown-Schumer reminded them that any proposal with funding for the wall will not pass the Senate and that two proposals that Leader Nancy Pulosi and he offered the president in the Oval Office last week are both still on the table,” said a spokesman for the New York Senator. “As is Leader Mitch McConnell’s proposal that the Senate unanimously passed two nights and could pass the House and avoid a shutdown if the President signaled he would sign it.” scumbag/clown-Schumer met at Pence’s request, along with Office of Management and Budget Director, and incoming chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney and Trump adviser and presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner. scumbag/clown-Schumer said other proposals that boost border security but without funding for the wall could still pass. After the meeting with scumbag/clown-Schumer, Pence walked across the Capitol to meet with Reps. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Mark Walker, R-N.C. The meetings come as lawmakers try to work out a solution to keep one-quarter of the government up and running ahead of the midnight deadline… https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/schumer-tells-pence-wall-funding-will-not-pass-in-the-senate


The Government Lost Billions More Bailing Out GM Than The $5.7 Billion Request For Wall Funding

by Molly Prince

{dailycaller.com} ~ Senate Democrats have shown their willingness to shut down the government in lieu of spending nearly $6 billion on a border wall… but compare that price tag to some of the other expenditures the government funds. House Republicans passed a stopgap funding bill on Thursday that included $5.7 billion to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. However, Senate Minority Leader Chuck scumbag/clown-Schumer vowed to kill any funding measure appropriating for a wall’s construction. scumbag/clown-Schumer has referred to the wall as “expensive and ineffective,” but just how expensive is it relative to recent expenditures? The Environmental and Protection Agency (EPA) was appropriated a $5.7 billion budget in 2018, down from the roughly $8 billion annual budget it has received since the mid-1990s. Inline with the agency’s mission statement, nearly 90 percent of the budget is used to provide grants safeguarding clear air, land and water, according to National Geographic. In 2017, the federal government spent more than twice as much on farms as the requested border wall funding. During the fiscal year, U.S. farms received $13.2 billion in subsidies, according to transparency group Open The Books. Nearly 15 percent of those subsidies went to farmers in exchange for not using their land… This shows us how stupid scumbag/clown-Schumer and his followers are. They just hate the President and hurting others. https://dailycaller.com/2018/12/23/border-wall-compare-spending/?utm_medium=email


Trump pushes out Jim Mattis early, names deputy Patrick Shanahan as acting secretary of defense

by Kelly Cohen & David Mark

{washingtonexaminer.com} ~ President Trump announced that Defense Secretary Jim Mattis will leave the administration nearly two months earlier than expected, and he will be replaced by Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan… “I am pleased to announce that our very talented Deputy Secretary of Defense, Patrick Shanahan, will assume the title of Acting Secretary of Defense starting January 1, 2019. Patrick has a long list of accomplishments while serving as Deputy, & previously Boeing. He will be great!” the president said in a Sunday tweet. Shanahan has, in recent weeks, played a key role developing the Pentagon’s budget proposals under changing demands by President Trump. DOD initially sought $733 billion for fiscal year 2019. Trump asked all federal agencies to take a 5 percent budget cut, which would have put DOD at $700 billion — a level military brass and Pentagon planners pushed back against. Trump recently reversed himself and reportedly is ready to provide the military $750 billion for fiscal year 2019. That should save Shanahan, as acting secretary, from having to made a series of unpopular cuts to weapons programs and other DOD initiatives…  https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/trump-pushes-out-jim-mattis-early-names-deputy-patrick-shanahan-as-acting-secretary-of-defense


‘Jihadism in Syria Is Alive More Than Ever’: Jasser

by clarionproject.org

{clarionproject.org} ~ U.S. Navy veteran Dr. Zuhdi Jasser says jihadism in Syria is alive more than ever… Now, with the withdrawal of American troops, the rest of the Syria will be filled by Russia and its Iranian allies… Jasser, the son of Syrian immigrants, is a well-known and respected commentator on the escalating Syrian conflict and a hardline critic of the Assad regime. Below, he shares his thoughts on Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria. “There are literally hundreds of al-Qaeda type groups in Syria now. Perhaps ISIS’ command and control structure has been decimated but it metastases, and conveyor belts are more active than ever. Syria is literally teeming with jihadis of every sort — the Salafi/jiahdis of the Sunni AQ/ISIS and Turkish brand “and the Khomeinist jihadis of the Iran/Assadist/Hezoallah variety. “The only thing tempering Turkish jihadi encroachment on our only ally in Syria, the Kurdish people and the few secular Syrian Democratic Forces, was our albeit minimal presence. “No one actually really reported how many forces we actually had in Syria just that we had a presence of some kind. That was enough at least to prevent the mother of all vacuums as Russia and its Iranian allies never wanted to engage U.S. troops. Now we are sure to see that vacuum filled just like we saw it in Iraq filled by a full-on basic takeover by Khomeinists. “Syrian government execution of Genocide 2.0 against Sunnis will commence soon. And Turkey’s jihadis will also encroach on Kurds as Assad turns a blind eye since his regime is no fan of the Kurds either…  https://clarionproject.org/jihadism-in-syria-is-alive-more-than-ever/


New Revelation: Previous US Administration Facilitated Christian Genocide in Nigeria

by Raymond Ibrahim

{gatestoneinstitute.org} ~ In a bombshell revelation, Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria’s former president (2010-2015), has accused the scumbag/liar-nObama administration of meddling with his nation’s politics… in order to replace him with its current president, Muhammadu Buhari — whom many blame for facilitating the persecution of Christians. In his new book, My Transition Hours, Jonathan writes: “On March 23, 2015, President scumbag/liar-nObama himself took the unusual step of releasing a video message directly to Nigerians all but telling them how to vote… In that video, scumbag/liar-nObama urged Nigerians to open the ‘next chapter’ by their votes. Those who understood subliminal language deciphered that he was prodding the electorate to vote for the Muslim-led opposition to form a new government.” A 2011 ABC News report provides context: The current wave of Muslim riots was triggered by the Independent National Election Commission’s (INEC) announcement on Monday April 18, 2011 that the incumbent President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, won in the initial round of ballot counts. That there were riots in the largely Muslim inhabited northern states where the defeat of the Muslim candidate Muhammadu Buhari was intolerable, was unsurprising. Northerners Muslims felt they were entitled to the presidency for the declared winner, President Jonathan, who assumed leadership after the Muslim president, Umaru Yar’Adua died in office last year and radical groups in the north Boko Haram had seen his Jonathan’s ascent as a temporary matter to be corrected at this year’s election. Now they are angry despite experts and observers concurring that this is the fairest and most independent election in recent Nigerian history…  https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/13447/obama-christian-genocide-nigeria


DHS: Asylum Seekers Must Remain in Mexico to Await Approval

by Political Editors: Asylum seekers will not be allowed to wait in the U.S. while their cases play out, Director of Homeland Security Director Kirstjen Nielsen told the House Judiciary Committee Thursday. “They will not be able to disappear into the United States. They will have to wait for approval.” Nielsen further explained, “If they are granted asylum by a U.S. judge, they will be welcomed into America. If they are not, they will be removed to their home countries.”

This decision by President Donald Trump’s DHS marks one of the most significant immigration policy changes to date. And it’s a welcome one, as it helps to close one of our nation’s most abused immigration loopholes.

The Associated Press reports, “Asylum seekers typically wait years on average before their cases are resolved, allowing them to put down roots in the U.S. while they wait.” The AP also notes, “Only about 9 percent of those who apply are actually granted asylum, and administration officials have long said too many migrants make false claims as a way to stay in the U.S.”

The AP further reports that “discussions between U.S. and Mexico to hammer out the arrangement began well before Mexico’s new president, Manuel Lopez Obrador, took office on Dec. 1. On Thursday, the Mexican foreign ministry said Mexico had agreed to the policy on a temporary basis for humanitarian reasons.”

Predictably, leftists decried the change, with ACLU attorney Lee Gelernt bleating, “This plan cannot be done lawfully and will result in countless people in life-threatening situations.” And while there will certainly be lawsuits, asylum seekers must now remain in Mexico pending court rulings — at least for the time being. ~The Patriot Post
