President Trump: “If for any reason it becomes necessary, we will CLOSE our Southern Border.”…

They said he wouldn’t pull out of the Paris Climate Treaty, he did.  They said he wouldn’t withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, he did.  They said he wouldn’t implement global Steel/Aluminum tariffs, he did.  They said he wouldn’t dare withdraw from the G7 agreement in Canada, he did.  They said he couldn’t get Canada to agree to a new NAFTA agreement, he did… the list is long.

One of the more consequential aspects to President Trump is he doesn’t bluff.  Regardless of the scale of the assertion, every adversary is WELL AWARE he will do what he threatens if the situation he confronts doesn’t change.  In this regard, no president, NO-ONE, has ever instilled such direct and focused fear once an adversarial issue, intentionally or unwittingly, falls into Trump’s sights.  They know he will do this:

The truth is, regardless of opposition or public opinion; regardless of how the media will attack the decision; President Trump will factually shut down the U.S-Mexico border if that becomes the remaining best option to deal with the crisis and protect U.S. interests.

Mexico knows this too.

The guy simply doesn’t bluff.

It’s the darnedest thing we’ve ever seen in modern politics…. seriously.

They said his economic plans wouldn’t deliver 3% GDP growth, they are.

They said he couldn’t pull-off a unity accord between North and South Korea, he did.

The list is long…

    Coulter makes many excellent points in her book including the one about “liberal churches” proclaiming the right of migrants to “cross our borders–completely unobstructed” in their quest for safety and access to dignity and freedom.

    Case in point: This morning in Church (Catholic) a new prayer by our Pastor called for “respect for all migrants from leaders to act more like Christ versus their selfish nature” and for get this: “universal income”.

    This from a very modest/average income suburb in Chicagoland.
    UGH.

        Deplorable,

        I bet the new prayer DID come from the Marxist Pope–through intermediary and new Chicago Cardinal Blasé Cupich.

        Curiously, Cupich recently commented that the Church needs to move away from repeating rumors of the sex scandals to focus instead on more pressing issues like “climate change”.

        Yes, he does appear to be taking cues from Obama.

        This has been going on since the 1600s! Four hundred years!!! Galileo was sentenced to house arrest by the “Church” for his discovery that the earth revolved around the sun. Galileo didn’t back down and died under this sentence along with other outstanding geniuses of his period. Evangelista Torricelli (inventor of the mercury barometer) studied under Galileo while he was under house arrest and was probably one of the last to benefit from the great knowledge therein, before Galileo died quietly as a broken man… Torricelli published his works anonymously thus avoiding the wrath of the church but, without credit until the twentieth century.

        Sadly it is true that the Catholic Church has been infiltrated by the Jesuits like the current pope and true Marxist.

        Remember the WikiLeaks expose from Podesta included that a Catholic spring needed to take place. Pope Benedict was forced out and replaced with their choice Francis.

        To the detriment of the many God fearing Catholics the Vatican is now controlled by the anti-Christ Marxist Francis who does not abide by the Biblical standards.

        Francis is the wolf in sheeps clothing.

      “The 1965 Immigration Reform Act promoted by President Kennedy, drafted by Attorney General Robert Kennedy and pushed through the Senate by Ted Kennedy has resulted in a wave of immigration from the Third World that should shift the nation in a more liberal direction within a generation. It will go down as the Kennedy’s family greatest gift to the Democratic Party.”

They no longer represent my values or interpret scripture in any reasonable historical context. It’s not a small thing to “speak for God” in these situations. It’s dangerous and and exactly what the 3rd Commandment is referring to if one studies the Hebrew meaning and interpretation. (Most of Western Christianity thinks it means cussing or blasphemy only)

        In any culture, 99 of 100 denominational believers were born to lifelong creeds. But institutional churches, or any hierarchical structures incorporating professional adherents, necessarily differ from acolytes’ personal, private convictions. Honored in the breach, official doctrines are typically not so much violated as ignored.

        In general, priestly castes know better than to seek out heresy, for they are sure to find it. But when a reigning prelate descends to partisan-political exhortation, as this foolish Pope has done, half to two-thirds of his constituents will simply stay away.

        “Open borders”– what of China’s Great Wall, what of Hadrian or even Jericho? What of “guaranteed income”, a disincentive levied on productive earners, as if every something-for-nothing collectivity from Anabaptists of Munster to Robert Owen’s New Harmony to murderous 20th Century communo-fascist regimes has not left naught but smoking ruin in its wake? These Central Planning dirigiste economies are Ludwig von Mises’ “fatal conceit”, ill-becoming a sub-marginal clerisy devoted to ritual passivity and quietism.

        Good Catholics, as ever, will support their fathers’ Church. Whether that includes manifestly anti-Biblical pronunciamentos by Rome’s cloud-cuckoo jack-in-office is an open question.

So it is NOT hard to figure out that Jesus’s church is NOT any Protestant Church (they were all founded in 1517 AD or later). The Catholic Church is Christ’s Church and if I don’t believe in Jesus as a Church Founder, I don’t believe in Him as God because the Bible tells me He founded a church as well as being God.

    I might need a tin hat for Christmas, but I think all this is deliberate, set up by the Globalists for their “new world order”. White Christians when the majority in any country are trouble to totalitarians eventually. They will cede their liberty, but not permanently. Russians put up with it for 80 years, then rebelled and threw out the communists. Unfortunately, the Russians prefer a dictatorship and so long as the dictator (Putin now) doesn’t do anything too egregious, they’ll remain quiescent.
    Americans not so much. We tossed England’s tea into the harbor. Southerners went to war against a federal government telling them what they could and could not do. (Not saying slavery was anything but immoral, just making the point that even when wrong, white Christians will fight for what they consider their liberty to make their own decisions).

    How to impose a one world, top down, socialistic form of government on these kinds of people? VERY DIFFICULT if not impossible. But IF the white Christians are in a minority and the majority is hostile to them (as are all the non-white races if the last election is any indication, including Jews who are white, too, but don’t seem to know it) then the white Christians are hampered by a fifth column inside their nation. This is why socialist totalitarians despise “nationalism” so much. They understand what it means and they understand it doesn’t mean Nazism. It’s a means.

    If they bring enough Latin Americans, Middle Easterners, Africans and Islanders into the country, the majority (people of color) will accept socialist totalitarianism here as they’ve accepted it in their home countries.

    Marxism branched off in the middle of the 20th century into classic Marxism and African/South American Marxism. In the former, it remains worker against capitalist (China). In the latter, (South Africa, Zimbabwe, most of Africa, Venezuela, some of the central American states) it is COLOR against white. That’s what they are importing into America these days — SA/A Marxism.

    As I said, I might need a tin hat for Christmas, but I have thought this for a long time. This, however, is a place where I feel free to say it.

    “There is no greater champion for Central American migrants; Alejandro Solalinde Guerra is a Mexican Catholic priest and human rights activist. He is the coordinator of the South Pacific Human Mobility Ministry of the Mexican Bishopric and director of “Hermanos en el Camino”, a shelter that provides Central American migrants with humanitarian aid and education.

    The priest and activist Alejandro Solalinde Guerra accused the civil organization Pueblo Sin Fronteras (Town Without Borders) for bringing the Central American migrant caravan to Tijuana to provoke the anti-immigrant policies of US President Donald Trump.

    “They ( Pueblo Sin Fronteras) are going to cause problems, as they are causing it internationally between the United States and Mexico, when in reality there was no need.

    “But also something very cagey: they played Donald Trump, they do it, and the proof is the impact, how they arrived; it was irrational, taking them to where there is no solution, where right now you cannot fix papers, ” he told the journalism portal SinEmbargo.”

    Migrants living in a makeshift shelter in Tijuana made a run for the San Ysidro border crossing, after reportedly becoming fed up with conditions, and walked approximately half a mile in an attempt to confront US authorities with asylum requests. After police blocked a bridge, the migrants crossed the Tijuana River on foot to approach the port.

    The President is the only person in charge of stopping this Invasion of the United States. The judge is wrong to say that POTUS has to stop the invaders on the Mexican side of the border.

Whatever his choice of weapons, there would be would be an invasion of Mexican Air Space. So, if he chooses not to do that, the only way he CAN stop the Invasion is on the US side of the border (by a well-placed pincer movement that rounds up all the invaders, perhaps).

    In all events, it would be the Commander-in-Chief’s call not that of some jerk water judge in San Francisco. It is not up to a judge to say that the President can’t do that without conferring rights on the invaders. The President is in charge of the tactics of repelling the Invasion and cannot be second guessed by some bureaucrat whose jurisdiction (a fancy term for “job scope”) is limited to “cases and controversies.” Fighting an Invasion is NOT a case or controversy. It is, rather, the most basic duty of the Federal Forces (US Constitution, Art. IV, Sec. 4).
