    Well then. Within hours of taking the oath of office, @GavinNewsom made big health care news. He called on the federal government to give CA permission to adopt a #SinglePayer system, said he wants CA to establish its own individual mandate and health insurance subsidies …

    The Great Wall of America Will Break the Democrats
    By Rich Logis| January 6th, 2019


    Democrats know The Wall is imminent. Is their pending dread of it more psychologically damaging to them than would be the actual erection of The Wall?

    Democrats know The Wall is the issue that finally will break them, and no amount of Democrat Media-Industrial Complex agitprop will ever tear down The Wall. It will be the chasm between the old guard and the burgeoning Leninism within the party.

    I listened to the press briefing and Homeland Security said they had several thousand cases of “persons of concern” on the border but this article says the number is much different…what gives?

    This article is only counting contact with people on the actual terrorist list already but maybe homeland security is concerned with all illegally crossing the border from suspect countries?

      From the original Fake News-NBC that the linked dailymail article is built around:

      “U.S. Customs and Border Protection encountered only six immigrants at ports of entry on the U.S-Mexico border in the first half of fiscal year 2018 whose names were on a federal government list of known or suspected terrorists, according to CBP data provided to Congress in May 2018 and obtained by NBC News.

      The low number contradicts statements by Trump administration officials, including White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, who said Friday that CBP stopped nearly 4,000 known or suspected terrorists from crossing the southern border in fiscal year 2018.”

      At Ports of Entry. Yeah, I don’t think the terrorists, cartel members, or ms13 that are coming in from Mexico are going through immigration ports of entry.

    Seeing as so many people are freaking out over the president addressing the nation for eight minutes Tuesday night, Twitchy founder Michelle Malkin decided to tally the number of times President Obama was handed airtime during the prime time slot.

    Here’s my handy thread on all the times lib TV networks broadcast Obama in prime time:

    Dear Media,

    Another example of why you are no longer relevant, dangerously partisan, and against America:

    HEADLINE: Trump to Give Primetime Address Tuesday on Border “Crisis”

    Crisis in quotes? Really? The bias is so over-the-top that the media has become a Joke.

    Excellent move, Mr. President. Go around these democrat operatives directly to the people.

    The alphabet networks are hiding the White House announcement that tax refunds will be disbursed as normal. This all but ensures Trump will ‘survive’ the shutdown. I can’t wait for his televised address

    This trickery cannot be allowed to stand. It is subversion and the antithesis of the intent of our laws and country.

      PDJT is the original classifier. He can declassify anything. He could start by declassifying information outside of Mueller’s probe. Maybe some information on Podesta’s pedophilia might be a good place to start. Then start expanding the scope of the releases, after it is clear that these people are a bunch of disgusting criminals.

      I have to believe that there is a way of breaking through this engineered catch-22 situation.

      Yep, providing proof in public of massive wrongdoing undermines any special counsel poison tree machinations. Let’s stop the shadow boxing; give us hard FACTS to work with!
