President Trump Holds Oval Office Press Conference During Signing Ceremony for “America Water Infrastructure Act”…

Following a signing ceremony for the ‘America Water Infrastructure Act‘ President Trump held a lengthy press conference in the Oval Office to cover a variety of topics.

During the Q&A the President said he may meet with Putin when he is in Paris in November. He also spoke about Saudi Arabia and Jamal Khashoggi, saying he wants all the facts before he makes a decision.  Noting his conversations with foreign leaders, the President said: “Nobody likes what happened.”

Speaking about the Central American ‘migrant caravan’, he said he thinks 10,000 people are coming which spells out something needs to be done. “We’ll have to call up our military if we need to we cannot allow our country to be violated like this”, Trump said.

    Trump has the moral high ground on the caravan. No matter what happens he can always dump blame on the DNC for not working with him on the wall and immigration reform. The DNC is going to get massacred on the 6th, count on it.

      The DNC will only be massacred if their voter fraud proves to be insufficient. I fully expect to see the democrats gain a few seats by using fraudulent methods. Lets hope that it is only a few.

      I can’t argue with any of that. They have used the let’s throw it to the wall and see if it sticks strategy and it has failed miserably. R’s/D’s/I’s voted for him because they wanted a wall with enhanced border security. In some areas we are seeing midterm turnout that isn’t too shabby. Folks were already angry about Kavanugh but this issue with the caravan is a bridge too far.

        It really is, Pam.
        We have our country and they have theirs.
        Ours is better.
        Theirs is worse.
        We and all of our ancestors worked extremely hard to get us to this prosperity and lifestyle.
        They’ve not done that with their country. Too bad.
        Now they want the fruits of generations and generations of our labor.
        No. Absolutely not.
        Go home and work on your own country. You don’t deserve to get for free what we’ve worked generations for. Especially for free! They want us to fund their lazy, self indulgent, ANTI AMERICAN lifestyle!
        They want to contribute nothing and simply take take take.
        They want us to continue to work ourselves to the bone so they can exist on our earnings and tax contributions.
        While our infrastructure suffers, our schools are abysmal, our healthcare is system is like a third world country, our welfare offices are overwhelmed, our court systems are inundated with crimes and illegal activity, our generous citizenship birth rights are skyrocketing, our jails are overflowing , the drugs are everywhere and the culture is weakened.
        They’re dragging us down. We’re not lifting them up.
        They must leave now. Enough is enough.
        We’re exhausted,

          We need to cut off or reduce the aid we have been sending to these countries.

          As you have pointed out our ancestors worked incredibly hard to get America where it is and now these freeloaders believe they have the right to come here, jump the border ant take and take and take.

          The need to go back home and build up their own countries.

          The videos of those grinning, muscled well fed young men and extremely overweight women in this caravan on their way to tell America what we are going to give them and how much is the last straw.

          America needs to stop being Sugar Daddy to all of the crappy third world countries that seem to get worse instead of better year after year.

          Honduras, Nicaragua, and so many other South American hell holes have been sucking up American Aid and spiraling down, down , down.

          We do not seem to be doing them any favors by handing out aid money.

          These insatiable monsters on their way here must be taught a lesson.

Hold your nose if you have to, but this isn’t the time to stay home only because we finally have a national leader who fights and he needs our help! Trump needs majorities in both the House and Senate to keep this country moving in the right direction.

      On foreign flights, coming in to the United States, there is an area between where the plane lands and customs, a gray area, where non-citizens coming in on those foreign flights are not considered to be on U.S. soil, not until they pass through customs. Can we establish a similar area at our border? A 20 mile wide swath. Have buses there to take the invaders straight to an airport, put them on a C-1 30 and fly them back to where they came from. No paper work, no legal challenge, maybe just a few legitimate asylum claims you can transport to ports of entry.

      • Ethicall, we use to have something like that.

        If an illegal alien was caught within 100 miles of the border and had been in the U.S. for less than two weeks then the Border Patrol could deport them without any kind of court hearing.

        Somewhere along the line I believe our Congress changed the rules to favor the illegals.

        Now if an illegal is in the U.S, for only five minutes he or she gets the full court press and treated the same way that an illegal who has been here for years.

        When I was growing up in Arizona the illegals were terrified of the Border Patrol because the BP had the power to send them back if they were caught.

        Now we have illegals walking up to the BP and giving themselves up because the illegals know that they will be guaranteed a long and involved court process that usually ends with the illegal being granted some kind of legal status.

        Everything now is geared toward favoring the illegal and not to doing what is right for our country.

        So when a foreign invasion force somehow lands on some Beach, or sneaks in over the souther or northern border, you want to limit our defense forces to ICE and CBP?

        First and foremost, ICE and CBP are NOT domestic combat forces.

        The United States military – Army and Navy – began by defending this nation from enemies WITHIN its borders, not overseas. In Baltimore harbor, in Charleston harbor, in Richmond VA., in DC on the Potomac River, on Lake Champlain, on the Mississippi River, and other locations.

        The U.S. Army had forts and installations all over THIS country, before it ever traveled overseas.

        The National Guard in each state is now an extension of the U.S. military, not a separate entity.

    My solution for the invaders: Close off all highway border crossings into/out of Mexico. This would cut off ALL trade by truck and prevent Mexicans who come into the US daily to work jobs along the border (and there are many). Within a few days, the Mexicans and their government will have the problem solved.

      Along with cutting aid, I say set fees for money transfers at 25 percent between the USA and Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras to start. If the caravan continues to come, increase that percentage every week by 5 percent until we stop the flow of money to these countries. Any other country found circumventing this fee will also be charged the same. I agree with Scarlet, what you don’t fight for, you don’t hold dear. And if the republicans win this time, we need to be on them every week with calls and emails. We have let them off the hook for far to long. They work for us. I live in Oregon which is blue in the cities and red in the country. Even I send emails to my senators and congressional rep. I’m respectful but clear about my position.

    posted also over on the Secretary Pompeo thread but fits here as well
    ——————

    Ok, so Dem talking point for today is that the President “has no proof” that MS-13 or potential terrorists are part of the Caravan.

    President and Pompeo both make the point of past experience detaining “middle easterners” at the border, including ISIS actors, Bangladeshis, etc.

    Time to lay out that proof in public – at least as far as general experience.

    Still doesn’t pin the tail on the current caravan but will make it harder for folks like Geraldo to claim he’s never heard of terrorists being intercepted, as he did today on Fox News.

    Mr. President – Please instruct Border Patrol to compile visual exhibits of potential terrorists and “other than Mexican” border captures, to include tallies by nation of origin (such as Syrians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, Iranians), tallies of potentially really bad actors that have been detained indefinitely or deported, physical evidence such as the “abandoned prayer rugs” that were in news accounts about 2 years ago, and so on.

    Then please have Border Patrol and DHS specialists who are intimately familiar with these aspects give televised briefings to the American public on this aspect. Agency chiefs and higher-ups like Pompeo are fine also, but let’s make sure that specialists from on the front lines are also prominent in the presentation to give raw witness about what they’ve experienced with such captures / evidence.

    This will at least get the facts in public view about what comes across routinely.

    As far as the caravan, let’s have some goddamn intelligence from our “17 Intelligence Agencies” or however many they claim to be. We’ve seen that they can collude on anti-Trump strategies, let’s see if they can do their damn job of protecting America and its citizens.

    Get some intelligence embeds in that caravan to snap some photos and have some conversations with likely bad actors, huh? Tattoos, anyone?

    As for MS-13, please to a similar briefing. Of course evidence for MS-13 incursion is already in the public domain as witnessed by the gang killings of various teenagers in the US. But let’s see tallies of known MS-13 and also tallies and photographs of heavily tattooed “unaccompanied minors” who have crossed our borders by year and month.

    Let’s get ahead of this Dem talking point about “no proof” please.

        Were they proud Americans, to the point of being “Nationalist” about America?

        … and only by coincidence black?

        No

        That movement was / is all about establishing a separatist Black Nation – under black rule

        At least that’s my understanding from prior reading, I won’t take time to keyword-search and look at Wiki pages just now.

        So when PresTrump states that he’s a Nationalist for American interests or an economic Nationalist, those are important distinctions.

        Acosta is playing the gotcha game to get a headline of “White Nationalist” pinned to PresTrump

        … with the implied connotation that he’d be there on the front lines with the other Tiki-Torch nimrods

        PresTrump’s got his number, won’t fall for that trick

        “You can’t play that trick on me” he just said yesterday in another context (medium-range missiles, if I recall correctly)

    Where exactly is the disconnect with people?

    When PDJT said, how is it fair to keep people on the list while others sneak across the border, that should make everyones blood boil. When did we change from a nation that wants to be fair, to a nation that wants to screw people who are playing by the rules..
    And the total insanity in even asking more than once, is there proof terrorists or bad people are coming with this group. What the H*LL? Are you that stupid or just willfully naive?

    You can see that even Fox is reluctant to hit this issue on the head – they go off into the human interest heart string tugging within minutes of introducing the topic. The Dems just want to exploit the family separation angle.

    The ugly reality is there are something like 4-5 billion people who would WANT to be here! We can’t make our immigration policies around what other people want! They don’t want to be in a village in Mexico; they want to be in Santa Barbara or Los Angeles or Dallas. Who wouldn’t? But the fact is we do not need endless amounts of immigrants who
    are coming here for the welfare state. Previous immigrants were not coming for the welfare state — it didn’t exist back then!

    If a true asylum seeker flies into the US from N Korea, say, it’s clear that person cannot be sent back to N Korea – and the person’s political asylum can be determined to be legitimate. In contrast the caravan people have “walked” through other countries and, finally, through Mexico. So they can be sent back to Mexico – where they (as a bonus to them) already speak the language! Mexico is the first country they set foot in where they can legitimately find political assylum (as well as economic opportunity).

    We have treaties with other countries and the ridiculous situation where any person who steps on our soil can claim political assylum. Then they enter the legal system and on and on it goes until the legal system rules OR they just disappear! All of that has to be cleaned up!

    It’s annoying when Fox reporters praise Mexico for the piddly responsibility that they DO occasionally undertake (under duress, apparently)! Mexico has to be considered a hostile neighbor if they won’t defend their own borders or do so selectively.

Trump spoke directly to the Army Corp of Engineer rep about discussing the border. We have been hearing throughout the year that the president could order the military to secure the border and build the Wall in an emergency (emergy!).

    Well, the Dems and their caravan just provided Trump the emergency he needs to build the Wall by executive order! And I believe that will be the October surprise to trump all October surprises!

    We’re all just being gaslighted again, now by our own side.

    It doesn’t TAKE ‘the military’ to stop a ‘caravan’ of unarmed people.

    A single sniper, at a strategic bottleneck, could freeze the whole mob in place indefinitely.

    And yes, he (the sniper) could play the New Emasculated American by not actually killing anybody, just shooting in the dirt directly in front of the point man.

    And if the mob grows bold and begins to suspect that the sniper won’t really shoot them (Soros promised them the New Emasculated American would never actually shoot them, and surveys show that thousands of New Emasculated Americans agree), a SNIPER has the capability to shoot a few of them in the foot, a non-life threatening injury.

    ONE MAN could pin down the entire mob, indefinitely.

    But we were all gaslighted by the Mexican mafia government claiming their trained, armed professional soldiers just couldn’t stop an unarmed crowd of civilians.

    And now our own president is claiming we may need the United States military to stop an unarmed crowd of civilians. Who knows, maybe it takes nuclear weapons to stop an unarmed group of nomads?

    Truth must certainly be the rarest thing on earth.

Tim Gaffney said that Director of Homeland Security Janet Napaolitano’s statements that crimes related to immigration and drug smuggling issues are down is just not true.The numbers county officials provided in the release seem to back up Gaffney’s stance. The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office said it has seen a “dramatic” increase in vehicle pursuits, drug seizures and calls to U.S. Border Patrol agents to help deal with illegal immigrants.

      While Minuteman civilian patrols are keeping an eye out for illegal border crossers, the U.S. Border Patrol is keeping an eye out for Minutemen — and telling the Mexican government where they are. Which side is the US government on anyway?

      According to the U.S. State Department, the Mexican government has a long and sordid history of human rights violations and corruption that continues today.

      The Minutemen do not blame Mexican nationals for wanting to live and work in the United States, said Chris Simcox, President of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps. “Our grievance is with the corrupt Mexican government and the oligarchs in power there who are callously shifting the responsibility of their impoverished population to the United States taxpayer through ineffectual border control efforts.”

      Simcox continued, “The border policies of the Mexican and United States governments have created a tragic and dangerous situation for citizens of both countries. Each year hundreds of Mexican and other nationals die a horrible death as they traverse desert wilderness attempting to illegally enter the United States. Among the sea of humanity that moves across the open borders every day, terrorists are free to walk across the border unchecked with chemical, biological and even nuclear materials. This is an unacceptable level of national security risk in a post-9/11 world”….

  29. President Trump is so on a roll these days. Having watched him last night give a major speech to a huge crowd, he follows it up today with the meeting with the AK, HI, and CA town/country managers where he further moved the ball forward on several issues, while encouraging the various gov’t folks there and American citizens. Then this presser and signature of a major bill on water infrastructure–all in 24 hours!

    Watching him weave the elements together so masterfully is just a joy. This was a bipartisan win (I looked it up, Mike Lee was the no vote, perhaps another Treeper knows why). Pres. Trump used the opportunity to both encourage and tweak the Dems there for additional bi-partisan bills. And he did the same thing with the head of the Army Corps of Engineers–thanking him but noting that the EPA is faster!

    And encouraging Pastor Brunson and having Pence brief the press on what the Honduran Pres said about the Venezuelan financing the caravan–again, great delegation, but when Pence wasn’t strong enough with the press, he took control to get the message out.

    Just loved his extended interchange with that yapping dog Acosta–POTUS just owns him while letting Acosta “preen” with his questions!

    And finally, how wise he is to put Congress on the hook to devise potential response to the Khashoggi mess. Heck if Lindsey and Paul et. al. are so full of opinions then they can take some of the responsibility for determining the best response, in concert with the Trump Administration. Isn’t that how our government of separated powers designed to work?!!

    Praying that Pres. Trump will get some rest this weekend, and that the R’s WIN BIGLY in two weeks!

    Screw everything else, that Water Infrastructure Act is a landmine just waiting to get primed and set by a future confiscatory prog Administration.
    Over the last decade the UN and a selected group in Congress have been trying to pass the same bill with different wording. a bill that would give the Federal government control over every water impoundment over the size of a temporary mud puddle. Each year the Congressional team tries to sneeeeeeak the bill thru, giving the EPA, USDA, BLM, Department of the Interior – you name it – control over any and all water above and below the ground.

    Each year our state forestry organization puts out its warning, gives us the bill number and wording and we start writing the letters. So far so good because all of the streams that run thru our property (seasonal or not). all of the ponds and lakes we own (man made or not) and all land with precipitation or our household waters that drain into these water sources will come under Federal control (ownership). They’ll be able to tell us what to do with the land and water, controlling the application of all ag products, approved by the Feds or not, and force restrictive testing and use of these waters.

    The county and state, believe it or not, tried the same thing, trying to take ownership of the aquifer under the county, as their property and further controlling our access to it. That would include household as well as agricultural wells in areas of the county where public services don’t reach. They didn’t want the ownership to protect the aquifer, they wanted to own it and eventually charge everyone, even those of us with permitted wells, for the water. And don’t think for a second they were environmentally conscious – since they dug a new well for the waterworks use our downstream wells have become slightly muddy from their pumping.

    Now we have a water framework that the bureaucrats can use for their favorite activity – issuing regulations based on their interpretation of the law. I’m betting their first strikes will be in the West, the BLM’s favorite water battleground, with the rest of us on the agenda. Just wait, as with the questionably efficient DHS being created out of a gaggle of questionable former Federal agencies to ‘increase efficiency’ we’ll eventually see a Cabinet level agency to centralize US ‘water policy’ with divisions scavenged out of the gaggle of agencies that now play Water God. We’re ready for the fight.
