HEY NEVER-TRUMPERS: That Wall You Hate … Guess Who’s BIDDING To BUILD It?

We’ve heard Trump throw red meat to his rallies… “Who will pay for it?” But were ANY of his critics expecting this plot twist?

Mario Burgos owns the Albuquerque-based professional services firm, Burgos Group. He is just one of about 60 Hispanic business owners who are now bidding for contracts with the federal government as it seeks to fulfill Trump’s campaign promise to build a wall. Burgos conducts business in seven states and employs around 120 people, according to CNN.

But Burgos isn’t the only Hispanic business owner looking to take advantage of the president’s proposal. About 600 private businesses have tossed their names into the hat, in hopes of landing one of the lucrative deals. Of the 600 companies, about 60 — or 10 percent — are Hispanic-owned.

“It’s not an anti-immigrant thing for me,” Burgos told CNN. “It’s about creating jobs. And honestly [it’s] like any other job.” —Blaze

Which brings up a good question. When did Liberals start opposing infrastructure jobs? And how do their UNION backers feel about it? Well, maybe the collapse that ‘Blue Wall’ in the Electoral College settles that question. But that doesn’t stop Democrat knee-jerk opposition to all things Republican.

What next? Will Democrats try to shut down the government just to oppose the wall? Actually, they MIGHT! But THAT would be EVIL. And HEARTLESS. (We know this because that’s what they called Republicans when REPUBLICANS wanted to shut down the government.)

That tells us one of two things. Either they are lying, opportunistic pieces of something unprintableOr… They THEMSELVES were the evil ones all along.

Come to think of it, these options are NOT mutually exclusive.

New York State High School Uses Trump, Mussolini, Hitler to Teach Fascism Lesson


Authored By Andrew West March 22, 2017

In the case of President Donald Trump, it seems that his opponents are relying only on their unhealthy obsession with history’s greatest villains to defame the leader of the free world.

As with any other enemy of the left, Trump is apparently Hitler.  This is the same ridiculous and tired argument that liberals and democrats make every single time they disagree with a republican politician.  If the accusations weren’t so completely predictable, they could possibly carry some weight, but the fact that calling someone “Hitler” in the leftists’ nuclear option, you’d think they’d save it for more important battles.

But, no.  The left is completely happy attempting, over and over again, to tag Trump as a fascist, with no other argument other than their pathetic name-calling.

Now, one teacher in New York State has taken the unacceptable name-calling of our President to the next level, and is indoctrinating her 10th grade students with an absurdly biased curriculum.

“A tenth grade teacher at Saratoga Springs High School led a discussion on the rise of fascism during World War Two by referencing President Trump.

‘“It’s total indoctrination,’ said Melissa, the parent who contacted me. She asked that I not use her last name. ‘It’s not their place to indoctrinate our children. It’s their job to teach the facts. Healthy debate is one thing but this definitely crossed the line.’

“The entire lesson plan was posted on the school district’s website. But once I started poking around and asking questions, the lesson was hidden behind a password protected wall.

“’Trump has absolutely no relation to World War Two. There’s no reason why he should be included with Stalin, Mussolini or Hitler,’ the mom said. They are trying to link him to the leaders of that time. That crosses a line.’

“Another graphics listed ‘early warning signs of fascism’:

“·      Nationalism

·      Obession with national security

·      Religion and government intertwined

·      Rampant sexism

·      Fraudulent elections

·      Obsession with crime and punishment”

Of course, the absurdity of these claims determines that they will be easily dismissed by level-headed adults.  The true issue here, as one parent put it, is the indoctrination of our youth into these haphazard patterns of thought.  These malleable teens should be coaxed into forming their own opinions about the world around them and the nation that they live in.  They should never be forced into one pattern of thought just because that pattern syncs up with the delusions of their teachers.

BOMBSHELL: Trump team surveilled during Obama admin, says House Intel chair

It turns out that President Trump’s transition team may have been surveilled after all.

Politico reports, “Members of the Donald Trump transition team, possibly including Trump himself, were under surveillance during the Obama administration following November’s election, House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes told reporters Wednesday.”

Rep. Nunes, R-Calif., said that “sources” informed him of possible surveillance that appears to have been legal and unrelated to the Trump-Russia collusion theories.

Politico’s Eric Geller provided more details from the Nunes press conference.

The mainstream media initially dismissed their own reporting of Obama administration surveillance, and its police-state tactics.”

Will we see an apology from the media elites for mockingly dismissing the questions Mark Levin has raised for weeks, as mere conspiracy theories”?

Dead End: Senate Intelligence Dems Admit There May Be ZERO Evidence Of Collusion Between Russians And Trump Campaign

Dead End: Senate Intelligence Dems Admit There May Be ZERO Evidence Of Collusion Between Russians And Trump Campaign

As Guy wrote last week, Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) has retreated from his claim that there’s solid evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence agencies. Now, his colleagues on the Senate Intelligence Committee also concede that there may be zero evidence of such activity after a month into their investigation (via John Sexton/<href=”#.mll4j9wrg”>Buzzfeed) [emphasis mine:]

A month into its sweeping investigation into the Kremlin’s efforts to undermine the US election, the Senate Intelligence Committee is expected to answer all those questions — publicly, coherently, and fast. As the days tick by, they’re less and less sure they’ll be able to.

Even some Democrats on the Intelligence Committee now quietly admit, after several briefings and preliminary inquiries, they don’t expect to find evidence of active, informed collusion between the Trump campaign and known Russian intelligence operatives, though investigators have only just begun reviewing raw intelligence. Among the Intelligence Committee’s rank and file, there’s a tangible frustration over what one official called “wildly inflated” expectations surrounding the panel’s fledgling investigation.

Since the probe was first announced in December — days after the FBI and CIA told Congress they believed the Kremlin had worked to elect Trump — political infighting has fundamentally shifted its mandate. Instead of a surgically precise examination of the raw intelligence that led US agencies to conclude the Kremlin attempted to tilt the election, the Intelligence Committee investigation has quickly become the catch-all for any politician’s lingering questions related to Moscow. Now, several committee sources grudgingly say, it feels as though the investigation will be seen as a sham if the Senate doesn’t find a silver bullet connecting Trump and Russian intelligence operatives.

I don’t think the conclusions are going to meet people’s expectations,” a second official said.

[…]

Lost in the political shuffling is the fact — concluded by 17 US intelligence agencies — that the upper echelons of Russia’s government directed an operation aimed at manipulating and disrupting the US election, and to a notable degree, succeeded. Short of an impeachable offense, officials are concerned the public is missing the forest for the trees.

So, the first part is something we’ve known for a bit: there’s zero evidence of so-called collusion, though that has not quelled the Democrats’ obsession with Russia. Any Trump aide who has met with a Russian foreign official is considered a breadcrumb on a trail could point to collusion, where in reality it’s probably a case of both sides doing their jobs; the Russian meeting with staffers of a person who could potentially become the next president of the United States and the Trump aide meeting with the Russian aide and the officials of other nations to establish a possible working relationship. This is not unusual. It’s also not unusual for members of Congress to meet with foreign officials as well, especially if you’re on the Senate Armed Services Committee, like former senator and current Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

As we’ve noted before, it quite interesting how in four years, Democrats can go from laughing at Republicans for suggesting that Russia is our biggest geopolitical foe to public enemy number one in less than five years. Some on the Left have also noted this descent into Russophobia concerning meetings between Trump aides and Russia is nothing more than neo-McCarthyite furor that could damage relations on future projects.

Also, the propaganda and fake news that was peddled by the Kremlin through social media trolls and their state-funded media outlets had zero impact on the election. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg said their platform, which was used disseminate some of these stories did not sway the election, The Economist reported on a study that also concluded that fake news did not play a pivotal role in the 2016 election. Russia didn’t succeed in undermining Clinton’s presidential ambition. Hillary Clinton did that to herself. Period.

In the absence of evidence, Democrats have blamed everyone from the FBI to even members of the press for undermining Clinton’s campaign. It’s becoming a rather sad spectacle.

Illegals Crossing Border Drop 40 Percent

Image: Illegals Crossing Border Drop 40 Percent

The number of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States from Mexico declined by 40 percent from January to February, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said on Wednesday.

The downturn came after President Donald Trump took office on Jan. 20 vowing to deport many of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States.

The flow of illegal border crossings as measured by apprehensions and the prevention of inadmissible persons at the southern border dropped to 18,762 persons in February from 31,578 in January, Kelly said in a statement.

He said the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency, which compiled the data, historically sees a 10 percent to 20 percent increase in apprehensions of illegal immigrants from January to February.

On Jan. 25, Trump ordered the construction of a wall along the roughly 2,000-mile (3,200-km) U.S.-Mexico border, moved to strip federal funding from “sanctuary” states and cities that harbor illegal immigrants, and expanded the force of U.S. immigration agents. 

“Since the administration’s implementation of Executive Orders to enforce immigration laws, apprehensions and inadmissible activity is trending toward the lowest monthly total in at least the last five years,” Kelly said.
