    I noticed this on Neon Nettle. It is a White House Petition that calls for the impeachment of Nancy Pelosi traitor to the American ppl. I did sign it.

    Nancy Pelosi is a TRAITOR to the American People!
    The Constitution defines, “Treason against the US.. ..adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” Illegal aliens are enemies that invade our country with drugs, human trafficking, and terrorist causing death and crime to American citizens. Nancy Pelosi adheres to these enemies by voting for and providing them aid and comfort through Sanctuary policies funded by US citizen tax dollars, and refuses to protect American people by refusing to fund our border wall, leaving our borders open and unsafe. Pelosi refused to meet with Angel families, caused the government shut down then traveled on US dollars to Hawaii and Puerto Rico while 800,000 Fed workers don’t get paid, and uninvited Trump for SOTU. IMPEACH Pelosi for treason!

      I signed it. When Obama was President I would never sign such a thing in fear of the IRS.

      Blue Ridge, thank you and I just went and signed that petition. 100K needed so hope more on this site will go and sign the petition NOW! Nancy needs to be institutionalized as not all there there, and I understand a fair number of democrats in the House are not happy with her and do want the wall built. The queen may soon see herself in a big mud puddle outside Congress’s doors.

        Rodney, I thought I read that the police said two suspects were already dead in the house and further investigation to see who else was there and did the dirty on these two. God bless and heal those seriously wounded and know that we like our police every where we have them. Sounds like today a police person needs to have full dress against all kinds of stupidity out there and dressed head to foot as protection.

    I’m gonna repeat a post at the end of the last page . . . I think it needs all the exposure it can get.

    Of course, ristvan beat ‘em to the punch by a couple of days . . .

    GOP Rep. Andy Biggs suggests how Trump can build the wall WITHOUT national emergency

    In a Fox News interview Monday, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., . . . suggested that President Trump may have a way to build the wall without Congress and without a national emergency declaration.

    “The president probably is going to have to declare that [the border] is an active drug trafficking corridor pursuant to Title 10 of U.S. code, and if so, he’s going to have access to billions of dollars to build the wall, some roads, and infrastructure, I think.”

    Biggs is referring to . . . a section of law that would permit President Trump to construct roads and fences “to block drug smuggling corridors across international boundaries of the United States.”

    From [Daniel] Horowitz:

    [Trump’s] authority is even stronger in the field of combating drug smuggling, even without the declared health crisis. 10 U.S.C. § Section 284 allows the secretary of defense, upon request from federal or state law enforcement dealing with drug trafficking, and in conjunction with the secretary of state, to “provide support for the counterdrug activities or activities to counter transnational organized crime.” Subsection b(7) allows the DOD to provide help in the form of “construction of roads and fences and installation of lighting to block drug smuggling corridors across international boundaries of the United States.”

    This is not some parsimonious loophole for an excuse to build a wall. This is the whole enchilada, folks. The main reason we need a wall is to combat the smugglers and the cartels who use the migration to bring in their contraband and dangerous criminals. Last October, the DOJ designated MS-13, Cartel de Jalisco Nueva Generacion (CJNG), Sinaloa Cartel, and Clan del Golfo as transnational crime organizations (TCOs).

    Using Title 10’s statutory authority . . . Trump has the specific statutory power to deal with a specific problem on the border and to build border security infrastructure. No national emergency declaration necessary.

      Why doesn’t someone tell our President.


      • bakocarl says:

        I could be grossly in error, but somehow I think he knows and knew, But then, I ask myself, if people are dying every day because of the alien invasion (drugs, murders, criminals, gangs, child trafficking), why hasn’t he acted already, and with vigor????????

          bakocarl, because he knows the Art of the Deal and is a great poker player and you don’t show your hands until the moment comes to drop them on the table. When too eager, you lose.


      • Carrie2 says:

        Sjerbear61, Trump has already stated that he has several avenues he can take. Undoubtedly this is one of several. Will be interesting which he uses and see how the 2 parties in 1 cringe as losing when they thought they were winning. Fools rush in where angels fear to tred, and they ain’t angels.


    • KnowSERENoFear says:

      Who cares about Title 10? The Constitution is the rule of the land.

      Constitution, Art IV, Section 4:

      “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.“

      SHALL…not may…not might…MUST! Clear and concise as can be.

      bakocarl, I read that too and thought then yep this is a good way to do it and keep the shutdown going longer due to the hateful democrats, namely Pelosi and her dog Schumer still fussing and not wanting anything to help Trump, us or our country. They don’t want to express that they know that a president has a lot of powers over them and can use them. I also suggest no more of our $113 billions going for illegals and that would be more than enough to build a tremendous wall and leftovers to start repairs to our infrastructure, and maybe a wee bit more to bring a bit of the national debt both parties let Obama create. Then again the Pentagon has a few billions they are no longer allowed to use because the time to use the money has expired, so that gives us even more billions. Go for it,Trump, and let’s get all the billions we can and kick butt! Oh, and let’s not forget no more to PP, NPR or PBS News Hour, and especially not to some kookly groups that will teach you how to wash your genitals, or another to teach shrimp how to walk on a treadmill, as those this crap is essential to anything. THIS IS OUR MONEY and not theirs and we not allow any more taking our into the general fund either. They know nothing of economics (most lawyers don’t) but only how to get richer ignoring us and taking those fabulous donor dollars!

    George Papadopoulos on Twitter: “Alexander Downer was asking me a lot of questions about what Trump would do about Huawei if elected president. The US just filed criminal charges against the Chinese company, Downer used to be on the board of, for committing espionage against the US. Think.” / Twitter

    https://www.dailycaller.com/2019/01/28/msnbc-roger-stone-conspiracy-trump/ There have been filings about the hacking into DNC e-mails and Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. There have been a number of filings detailing all of the people that have lied in the Russia investigation. What there hasn’t been so far is any evidence or any charges of conspiracy on the American side in terms of, like, collusion. Do you think that is because the Mueller team doesn’t have it? Are they building up a public case of sorts? What is your interpretation?”

    “I don’t think they have it, I don’t think it is there, and all of this stuff I see where people are ‘ooh-ing and ah-ing’ over this indictment in terms of getting us closer to a conspiracy allegation, I think are quite incorrect,” Wisenberg stated.

    “In fact, if anything, the indictment shows, tends to show, that the Trump campaign was not involved in a conspiracy because they had to ask Roger Stone, ‘Hey, go ask WikiLeaks what kind of damaging stuff they have on Hillary and when they’re going to release it next.’” (RELATED: Mueller Indicts Roger Stone)

    He continued, “That doesn’t sound like somebody leading a conspiracy or in on what’s going to happen. They’re having to ask Roger Stone, so I reject the primary narrative that I’m seeing a lot on your network and on CNN. It’s just another case of lying.”

    I’ve always understood the Left to be emotionally damaged. It was an article of faith. But I’m beginning to see that the Right may be just as damaged, just as sick, but in a different way, which forms an obverse image of the sickness of the Left. That is, the Left as sadists, the Right as masochists. It is becoming clear that there is NO AMOUNT of abuse that is too much for conservatives to tolerate, no apparent threshold beyond which we will fight back.

    One small example — our Executive branch has gone two years now sucking up continuous corrupt and degrading abuse from our own Justice Department without any meaningful response, without the slightest hint that enough is enough. I cannot think of any precedent for this in our history. It’s pretty fascinating, in a disturbing way.

      I’ll provide another example, a deeper historical basis for my point.

      For 20 years I’ve been watching Sunday MSM news interview shows (though I’ve pretty much stopped watching the last few years). These shows have followed the exact same attitudinal format over these years. That is, the Republican/conservative is introduced and proffers an eager, ingratiating salutation such as “thank you for having me, George” “glad to be here,” nice to see you,” etc. then proceeds to have his ass reamed for 10 minutes with twisted semantics, snarky subtexts, veiled slander, or outright lies — and all the while squirming with strained and defensive courtesy. The next week, another republican or conservative does the EXACT SAME THING with the EXACT SAME RESULT. Sorry, but there is something psychologically messed up about that. Healthy, self-respecting adults DO NOT accept that sort of serial abuse.

      Likewise, Tom Brokaw can struggle to apologize for a non-offensive and true remark about minority Latinos but feels completely free to wildly slander an entire race which makes up the majority. How can he do this without having absolutely no fear of a problem or pushback? That is, he counts on the complete lack of pride and self-respect of white conservatives.

      Maybe we need to look less at the Left and more at ourselves.

        There is an element of truth in what you say paulraven. It is so frustrating to watch GOP stay silent and take all that abuse.

        The problem is, they are afraid that they will be called out as being ill mannered. 😱😱. How horrific.

He similarly found himself in the middle of various financial scandals, the IRS scandal where the government overly criticized conservative groups, the Benghazi terror attack scandal, and countless more that all would surely come back to life front and center should Holder throw his hat in the ring.

    https://hotair.com/archives/2019/01/28/city-opened-doors-asylum-seekers-come-regret/ The shelters are running out of space and some new arrivals sleep on mats on the floors. Others are outdoors. And unlike southern California, Texas or Arizona, the weather in the winter is far from gentle. The funds the city spends on the program are being strained to their limits and they require frequent subsidiary payments from the taxpayers.
