New Reasons to Impeach the President

With each passing day it’s becoming more and more evident that the Impeachment or Bust strategy concocted by Adam Schiff-less, The Squawk Squad and Nancy Botoxi is a bigger bust than Dolly Parton’s.

Fear not though, the Wily E. Coyote Democrats have a lot more in their asine arsenal to go after the president.  When their Trump-talked-to-a foreign-leader-and-we’ve-got-nothing-else-so-he-has-to-be-impeached blows up again in their buggy-eyed faces, they’ll stubbornly insist on new grounds for impeachment.

Specifically, a Democrat think tank (an oxymoron if I ever heard one) has offered up five new reasons to unseat America’s duly-elected 45th president.

His Ties Are Too Long – at first glance this may seem like a “stretch,” but what better way for the Dems to hang the president on their own petard than with one of his signature neck ties.  As usual though, the Democrats are overreaching with their lame impeachment ploys, have tied themselves up in knots and are choking off any chance they have of winning in 2020.

Politically Incorrect Diet – here’s some food for thought: many leftists and NeverTrumpians think Donald J. Trump is a dolt, a dictator and a despot, but doggone it, they still expect him to parent and be an example for children regarding a healthy diet. 

They also believe Trump is receiving illegal endorsement money from the fast food brands he consumes. Yo quiero, Taco Bell!

No Pets, No Regrets – President Trump is the first president in nearly 130 years to go sans-Doggy.  Most presidents have had at least one dog (notably Harry Truman and Bill Clinton but we’re referring to the four-legged variety), but President #45 has bucked that trend, probably because his media coverage has been meaner than a junk yard dog. 

Also, he frequently entertains himself on Twitter with the dog-and-pony show offered by Democrats and NeverTrumpers.

Toilet Seat Commode-ion – Ever since former President Oblamo dictated that transgenders could use whichever gender’s restroom they identified with at the moment, America’s restrooms have been a commode of confusion, flushed of commonsense and sanity. 

The Democrats argue President Trump has made the problem worse in the White House because he leaves the Oval Office toilet seat in the upright position to save time.  Since Democrats rarely think about saving time or taxpayer money, this is a “foreign” concept to them and obviously must be an impeachable offense.

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow – Since Donald John Trump upset their globalism, one-world government apple cart, Democrats have torn their hair out seeking his impeachment. Regardless of the hair splitting needed to accomplish that, there is neither hide nor hair of any evidence he has broken the law. 

Yet Trump’s ouster is constantly in their cross hairs.  Their ongoing efforts to destroy him has made a lot of Trump supporters’ hair stand on end, which only bonds the president and his followers closer together. 

If the parade of 2020 Democrat presidential candidates is a clown car, their impeachment inquiry is a circus of virtue signaling.

National Review and Fox News Contributor Andy McCarthy said it best: “This is not an impeachment inquiry, it’s a show for TV.”

Left Wingers Have Finally Lost It

Dimwits, dolts or dullards? Take your pick and pin the tail on the donkey of the Democrat leadership, The Squad,  and the party’s 2020 train wreck of presidential political candidates.

Left Losing It #1  Teen Swedish weather cultist Greta Thunberg recently addressed a UN Assembly to discuss climate change and proceeded to acid rain on the gathering’s parade by blaming and threatening international leaders for not doing enough on climate change.

Other than lambasting world leaders for their selfishness and greed, young Greta was a sweetheart.

At one point during her speech she whined, “This is all wrong.  I shouldn’t be up here.  I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean.”

On that point we agreed; she shouldn’t have been there. She should have been in school.  Studying real science.  And Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations.

According to the 16-year-old Swede whose challenges with Asperger’s Syndrome, obsessive-compulsive disorder and attention deficit disorder are well documented, “You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words.  How dare you!”

She concluded her “pep talk” with these foreboding words:

“We will not let you get away with this.  Right here, right now is where we draw the line.  The world is waking up.  And change is coming, whether you like it or not.”

Using a mentally-challenged teenager schooled on junk science for the purpose of overthrowing the world’s best economic system, and bullying people into submission, is like strapping explosives to Palestinian teens, encouraging them to blow up Jews and then applauding their commitment to population control.

Left Losing It #2

In Episode #478 of the Democrat Impeachment Chronicles the wayward party of Jefferson struck on a new strategy to get Orange Man Bad: use a faux whistle blower to accuse him of colluding with a foreign country to provide dirt on a campaign opponent.

And surprise – the foreign country wasn’t Russia.  That’s a new wrinkle.

The Deep State’s latest scheme was working well until it was learned that:

  • The whistleblower wasn’t in the room during the president’s phone call
  • The whistleblower hadn’t seen the transcript of what was said during the president’s phone call until it was made public
  • The whistleblower is believed to have worked for the CIA
  • The whistleblower’s attorney had worked for both Chuck-it-All Schumer and Hillary Clinton
  • The whistleblower’s lead attorney had contributed to hair sniffer Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.

But it gets better.  Nancy Pelosi announced Sept 24 the Democrats were doing a remake of the Seinfeld show – they planned to launch an official impeachment inquiry based on nothing.

Pelosi pulled the trigger on the Democrat impeachment gun before seeing the transcript of the president’s phone call, without seeing the Inspector General’s report, without hearing from the whistleblower, without questioning a single witness and – without any credible evidence of an impeachable offense.

At last count 220 Democrats and one independent support impeaching the president.  For what offense?

Asking the newly-elected Ukrainian president for his country’s help in investigating their country’s interference in America’s 2016 presidential election and former Vice-President Joe Biden’s threat to withhold one billion dollars of U.S. aid to keep his son from being prosecuted in a corruption probe and maintain his $50,000 monthly income.

Time will tell, but the smart money is saying the impeachment shoe is on the wrong party’s foot.

Seattle’s Poop Problem ‘Has To Go’

It seems like just yesterday that Seattle was the crown jewel of the Pacific Northwest.  Now it’s like a public outhouse with an evergreen scent.

Seattle isn’t alone with what to do about their sidewalk doo-doo.  The city is still Number 2 to Scat Francisco in brownouts – so to speak.

The first step in Alcoholic Anonymous’ 12-Step program is to admit you have a problem.

No sh$%, Sherlock.  If you need a reminder, just check your shoes around Seattle’s downtown courthouse at Third and James .

Seattle City Council members have admitted they have a serious poo miscue, but the obvious answer as to what to do about their doo-doo is being flushed down the commode of commonsense because of – wait for it – racism.

Seattle Council member Larry Gossett, who is black, opposes the idea of power washing street feces “because it brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists.”

Let’s recap:  Seattle is allowing the homeless and others with mental health issues to use downtown streets as personal open air toilets.  That’s dumb.

Then the city avoids using the most obvious and efficient means of cleaning up the problem short term so as not to offend anyone from regrettable actions half a century ago.  That’s dumber.

What could be even dumber?

Wasting time and resources on a plastic straw ban while requiring citizens to step around urine puddles and piles of feces on their way to and from work.

It’s no wonder that famed psychiatrist Frazier Crane left for greener, less brown pastures.  Seattle and many Left Coast cities have gone bat guano loco.

Just say no to poopie streets, Seattle.  Here’s a complimentary hashtag:

#StreetPoopingStinks

Pet Peeves Deserve Time and Attention Too

Sixty-eight percent of American households, or 85 million families, own a pet according to a 2017-18 National Pet Owners survey. 

Considerably more families than that feed what are commonly known as “pet peeves.” 

Unlike most pets, pet peeves don’t usually require spaying or neutering, although the pet peeve owner may require some other form of professional treatment.  Without taking specific preventive action when an owner’s “pet” is peeved however, howling at the moon or leaving little “surprises” in the neighbor’s flowers can be expected. 

There is no law how many pet peeves an owner can have, but there appears to be a co-relation between advancing age and the number of pet peeves one can successfully manage. 

For instance, below are three of my pet peeves… 

Pet Peeve #1 

The phrase “It is what it is” is like fingernails on my mental chalkboard. Whatever “it” is, logically “it is what it is” because what else could “it” be?! What it isn’t?!  

Does the validity of the phrase, “It is what it is” depend upon what the meaning of the word “is,” is? What if “it” isn’t what it is? If that’s the case who can we appeal to and does it entitle us to a reward or reparation? 

Pet Peeve #2

The phrase “people of color.”  As astute readers have been reminded ad nauseum by “The Squawk Squad,” all four of the loquacious quartet are “women of color.”  

News flash: Every person is a “person of color,” and last I looked “white” is still a color.  

When Palestinian princess Rashida Tlaib or Minnesomolian Ilhan Omar whine their policies are under attack because they are women of color, couldn’t Tennessee’s junior senator Marsha Blackburn or Wyoming Representative Lynn Cheney say the same thing when their policies are criticized? 

Does darker skin pigment mean your legislation is “lily white” and can’t be criticized?  Conversely, does being white mean your ideas are automatically offensive to “colorful” woke legislators Who makes the rules in this game? Crayola? 

Pet Peeve #3  After every mass shooting (in Philadelphia it was while the shooting was still going on) Democrats never miss an opportunity to call for tighter restrictions on the gun rights guaranteed to us in the Second Amendment.

In other words, they seek to punish, inconvenience, and make law abiding gun owners less safe due to the illegal actions of a solitary shooter.

Enacting new gun restrictions after every mass shooting is like requiring all licensed drivers take a remedial driving class, renew their driver’s license and pay more for their auto insurance after every hit and run fatality.

The fact that almost all of the mass shootings take place in gun-free zones should be a clue that regardless of gun restrictions, the perps planning to shoot could care less about gun laws – thereby nullifying the “let’s-pass-another-guns-restriction” law. 

Even worse, restricting the rights of legal and legitimate gun owners gives those contemplating mass murder more power and incentive because it is less likely anyone will be shooting back – thereby nullifying the “lets-make-it-harder-to-buy-guns-legally” law. 

These are three pet peeves that wake me in the middle of the night wanting out. What are yours?

Nike Couldn’t Fill Betsy Ross’s Shoes

Colin Kaepernick may have once been a NFL superstar quarterback, but since 2016 and his refusal to stand for the national anthem, he is better known as a dissenting American “satriot.”

What is a “satriot?” A word I made up like Kaepernick and his ilk make up grievances.  A satriot is someone who think of themselves as an American patriot but they don’t have a leg to stand on – so to speak.

In other words, they “sit out” from participating in any activity that may be seen as patriotic and celebrates America.

For example, standing for the Star Spangled Banner.  Or respectfully observing patriotic holidays like the Fourth of July that honor America and give us reasons to unite as one people.

Another example of satriotism would be wearing socks that portray police officers as pigs.

Kaepernick recently took an image association test and Dean Riffs was lucky enough to obtain the results of the only Scat Francisco QB to lose a Super Bowl.

When shown an image of thousands of people standing for the Star Spangled Banner, Krapernick said he saw,  “Police oppressing black people and other people of color.”

Next Kraperniche was shown the original American flag consisting of 13 stars against a deep blue circle.  The former NFL QB who was benched after going 1-10 in his last season said he saw a racist symbol associated with slavery.

Considering Betsy Ross, the flag’s creator, was a devout Quaker, no one will mistake Kap Kangaroo as an American historian.  Quakers openly opposed slavery and Ross was known throughout Philadelphia as a fervent abolitionist.

Finally, Colinoscopy was shown an image of former slave and famous abolitionist Frederick Douglass meeting with President Abraham Lincoln in the White House.

“Sellout,” was the term Kaepernike used to describe Douglass. “Uncle Tom!” “Vanilla Ice wannabe!!” he spat out.

So here’s the deal: Nike pulled a holiday-themed shoe featuring a nice image of Americana based on the subjective opinion of a social justice soldier whose sole branding strategy is controversy and grievance.

Where thousands of potential customers saw a nostalgic, patriotic special-edition pair of kicks,  many will now view the Betsy Ross flag pulled by “woke” Nike as a controversial symbol of racism and malice – thanks to Nike’s multi-million dollar spokesperson who sees minority oppression and social injustice wherever he looks.

Nice job, colic Collin.

What will Nike and their whiny spokesperson do when neo-Nazis, KKK members or normal Americans who they like to call “white nationalists” wear the Nike swoosh,  the “Just Do It” shirts and assorted Nike sneakers out in public? Or God forbid, at a Trump rally!

Are they going to give those they disagree with millions of dollars in free publicity by crying foul over the misappropriation of Nike apparel?

It will be karma to see them freak out when the Nike shoe is on the other foot.

Diversity is Fool’s Gold Patriotism

What’s the opposite of American exceptionalism? The Democrat party.

Whoops, that was a Freudian slip. What I meant to say was that the identity politics Democrats practice is antithetical to American exceptionalism.

For years liberals and progressives have preached the gospel of inclusivity and diversity. (I mention both groups to be more inclusive and diverse.)

From the left’s skewed perspective, what makes America great are our differences:  race, skin pigment, religion, biological gender (real or imagined), gender identity, (always imagined if different from biological gender), sexual orientation (often misguided), national origin and age .

On the other hand, conservatives believe subordinating those qualities that make us different and melding them into a synthesis of Americanism is what makes our country exceptional.

In a word, unity is the preferred ideal and the embodiment of American exceptionalism.

Having people of different backgrounds and ethnicities focus on a shared cause and purpose has always been the American way.  This is often referred to as the melting pot.

Liberals view America not as a melting pot, but as a smelting vat.

To listen to their messaging, the left believes celebrating our differences and favoring various groups over others is what makes America unique.

They regurgitate hackneyed responses accentuating those differences -Trump hates brown people and uses Central American children as kiddie caddies at his golf resorts – to create enthusiasm with Democrat voters but there’s a problem: their pandering is fool’s gold patriotism.

Comrade Bernie Sanders wants Medicare for all, free college tuition and forgiveness of over a trillion dollars in student debt.  Spartacus Booker and Kamala “Tupak” Harris want slave reparations.

Fauxahontas Warren wants tax reparations for gays because gay marriage was only legalized a few years ago.

Pete “No Mas Pence” Buttigieg wants to reverse the ban on transgenders in the military and “Hair Sniffer” Biden wants to legalize naps in the workplace.

The Democrat primary is becoming a game of who can give away more tax dollars to satisfy the most “gimmes” with their hands-out.

The problem for 2020 Democrat primary candidates though is there aren’t enough reparations, quotas, exemptions and set-asides to feed all the different tribes they’re hustling.

By the time the “gimmes” figure that out, the 2020 Democrat clown circus is going to implode on its own combustion.

Three New Tales from the Loony Left

It’s a fine line separating acute Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferers from leftists that are bat guano crazy on their own. Below are three recent examples:

Staying Abreast of Climate Change

Recently The Gateway Pundit reported on a climate change protester who glued her breasts to the ground in front of the Goldman Sachs building in London.

Forward Thinking Protester

According to reports she was part of a group protesting corporations’ “role in our collective suicide.”  Not sure what gluing her female anatomy to the pavement has to do with climate change and corporate greed, but guess it was the breast she could do.

Whatever your opinion on climate change, no one can say this woman didn’t have skin in the game.

Castigating Men for Abortions

Illinois Democrat State Representative Diane Pappas thinks she has found a clever way to prevent mass abortions: castrate men and charge to store their sperm until such time when they are ready to begin a family.

Illinois Democrat Rep Diane Pappas

“If we allowed men to be castrated, took the sperm to the bank, collected tax dollars on it for storage, then when it’s time, to have the man decide he’s ready to begin a family…well then problem is solved,” she said brightly of her abortion solution.

Talk about throwing the baby out with the bath water!

Ms. Pappas’ solution is a bit like pruning trees by chopping them down or getting to zero unemployment by outlawing work.

Thus far the only support for Ms. Pappas’ plan is from a Saudi Arabian transvestite soccer team and the gals on The View.

College Mascot Victim of Students Hatchet Attack

The student body at George Washington University recently voted to remove George the Colonial as the school’s mascot.

According to 54 percent of the student body voting on an issue generated by a petition containing just 500-plus signatures, George Washington isn’t considered inclusive enough to represent the school named for him.

George the Colonial Gets the Hatchet

Campus Reform reported that a GW Student Association senator said that “school spirit is something that should be based on equality.”  Because the general of the Continental Army, our first president, and the Father of our Country was a slave owner, he has been judged unworthy and persona non grata by today’s pajama-clad arbiters of morality.

It’s unknown how many students who voted to remove George the Colonial as mascot have burned their $1 bills with Washington’s image in protest, or why they may replace him with… a hippopotamus. I’m not kidding.

In my opinion a better choice as a GW mascot would be George Orwell or Tommy Taliban.  The former was a master at manipulating language as a weapon of mind control, and the latter believes in destroying anything they find offensive.

Democrats Say the Darnedest Things

Long before camcorders and America’s Funniest Home Videos, radio and TV personality Art Linkletter used to host a show called, “Kids Say the Darnedest Things.”

Today it is Democrat presidential candidates saying the “darnedest” things, and while some candidates are older than others, all are old enough to know better than to say the darnedest things they’ve been saying.

Bernie Sanders

America’s best known socialist Bernie Sanders has added another wacko herb to his socialism stew by supporting the right of murderers, rapists, violent offenders and terrorists to vote.

“I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy,” he said recently.

What about those Americans permanently disenfranchised because they were killed by those Bernie wants to give the right to vote? Last I looked the right not to be murdered is an ‘inherent American right’ too.

Elizabeth Warren 

Everyone’s favorite Native American wannabe recently proposed forgiving the student loan debt of 95 percent of those owing on college loans.

When announcing her plan Lieawatha said it “helps millions of families and removes a weight that’s holding back our economy.”

But wait, does she speak with a forked tongue – again?

The Brookings Institution reports under Sitting Baloney’s plan, the majority of those benefiting from the loan forgiveness program would be the nation’s highest earners.

Specifically, the top 20 percent of the highest income households would receive about 27 percent of all annual savings, and the top 40 percent about 66 percent.

The bottom 20 percent of borrowers by income would get only 4 percent of the savings.

Why would Pocahontas devise a plan favoring the richest students? And what of those students saddled with debt before the launch of the Pocahontas Penury Plan? Will they be eligible for ‘tuition reparations’ or Starbucks gift cards?

Kamala Harris 

California senator Kamala Harris said at a recent town hall sponsored by CNN (Collusion News Network):

“There are people in Washington, D.C., supposed leaders, who have failed to have the courage to reject a false choice which suggests you’re either in favor of the second amendment or you want to take everyone’s guns away.”

She then promised that if Congress failed to act on gun control in her first 100 days as president, she would sign an executive order overriding the Second Amendment and forcibly take guns away from those she doesn’t think should have them.

Read my lips: When a Democrat says we need ‘common sense’ regulations and ‘reasonable gun safety laws’, that always means banning guns.

Only Kamala Harris or any of the other 300 Democrats running for president in 2020 would support the rights of prison felons and terrorists over the rights of legal gun owners guaranteed in the Second Amendment of the Constitution.

Couple their enthusiasm for prisoners’ voting rights with their publicly expressed support for infanticide, the Green New Deal and open borders and voila – Democrats have a winning platform!

Go and run on that platform Democrats – America will love you for it!

Democrats Double Down on Stupid

Since the Mueller report shipwrecked in Collusionville last month, the Democrat party is behaving more absurdly than usual.

The growing number of libs acting loony has exceeded the available life preservers of reason and logic aboard the S.S. Stupid.

Conservative commentator and political activist Candace Owens was recently accused of being a white nationalist by California Democrat representative Ted Lieu.

Earth to Ted:  Candace Owens is black.

Trump administration senior presidential advisor Stephen Miller was accused of being a Nazi by Minnesota Democrat representative Ilham Omar.

This was undoubtedly a surprise to his parents and rabbi since Miller is Jewish.

And that’s not all Omar said recently.  Last month she claimed before a Muslim gathering that Muslims lost their civil liberties after 9-11 because “some people did something.”

That’s like an American Cousin patron at the Ford Theater in 1865 whining about a ticket refund because all the hubbub about Lincoln being shot ruined the show.

Omar said last month at a Council on American Islamic Relations fundraiser it was hard to say what they did, or why they did it, but random Muslims woke up one morning and decided to do what they did and, because of that, “all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

It takes chutzpah for a Muslim activist to play the victim card when recalling the horrific deaths of almost 3,000 people in the worst terrorism incident in American history.  Not to mention describing that tragedy as a mere annoyance akin to the neighbor’s dog barking all night.

Finally, in a hearing of the House Banking Committee April 10, committee chair Maxine Waters asked some of the nation’s bankers to testify about what they were doing to help college students being crushed by student loan debt.

Apparently no one told Mad Max that the administration of student loans was nationalized by the Obama administration.

In 2010.

Meaning the banks Mad Max wanted to castigate for student loan debt have not offered student loans for a decade.

That would seem to be important information for the chairman of a committee overseeing the nation’s banks to know.

As we’ve known for many years now though, Mad Max is in serious need of a capital infusion in her smarts account. When it comes to truth, facts, and commonsense, she’s running a responsibility deficit and her accountability credit is gravely overdrawn.

Are Democrats On the Take, On the Border?

Border patrols agents recommend it.  Ranchers and law enforcement officials in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas want it.  The president promised it and a majority of Americans support it.

So why now are all Democrats and some squishy Republicans adamant in their opposition to a wall on our southern border?

Former Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, Nancy Pelosi

The easy answer is Democrats need new voters to replace the moderate Dems and independents they have lost with their wacky policies.

Conversely, Republicans want low-skilled workers to satisfy their corporate lobbyists who want to increase profits by paying lower wages to their employees.

Could there be another reason though, for politicians’ unwillingness to yield on their refusal to provide a border wall that would inarguably cut down on crime, drug running, human trafficking, child molestations and exploding welfare rolls?

In May, 2016 Nancy Pelosi, a former Speaker of the House at the time and current Speaker, visited Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto along with Democrat Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, Democrat Representative Henry Cuellar, and other congress critters.

Of the 11 elected officials on the trip, two were Republicans and nine were Democrats.  The two Republicans taken for a ride south of the border provided Pelosi cover to tell the media it was a bipartisan group of lawmakers involved.

The nine Democrats participating in the junket to Mexico were from border states California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.  The two Republicans represented districts over a thousand miles from Mexico but no doubt enjoyed their time in the sun toasting each other’s bipartisanship.

The purpose of the trip? According to the Rio Grande Guardian, Pelosi claimed the purpose was to “express our respect for the people of Mexico and the country of Mexico; to acknowledge our shared border and our shared values and to learn more about how we can work together for the bright future for not only our two countries but for our hemisphere.”

Uh, huh.  Here’s another reason: What about a substantial bribe of drug cartel money to buy Democrat opposition to a wall and to keep the drugs and illegal immigration flowing faster than the Rio Grande after a flash flood.

Fact: Alex Cifuentes, reportedly a close associate of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán for years, told a New York City courtroom in 2016 that he had told authorities that El Chapo had offered President Nieto a $100 million bribe in 2016 – the same year Pelosi and her posse came calling.

Today Guzmán was found guilty on all counts by a Brooklyn jury. He faces a lifetime sentence behind bars and will be sentenced June 25.

Fact: Just a few years ago Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer agreed our southern border needed a wall. Now most Dems argue that such a wall is not only unnecessary, but some like Pelosi claim a border wall is “immoral.”

Why the about-face?

Are we safer now? Are there less drugs flowing into the country? Are there fewer criminal illegals crossing our border? Are there fewer crimes committed by illegals? Has the gang problem with groups like MS-13 been eradicated?

Fact: Former Democrat and current Trump supporter Jeffrey Peterson has been very clear why he believes Democrats oppose building the border wall – because they are being paid by the Mexican drug cartels.

Peterson told the The Gateway Pundit last month that the only way President Trump will ever get his border wall is by declaring a national emergency because the Democrat party has been bought and paid for by Mexican drug cartels.

If this theory sounds wackier than an Alexandria Ocrazio-Commie economic blueprint, consider this:

Democrats oppose Trump’s plans for a border wall, they oppose Border Patrol recommendations asking for a wall, they oppose law enforcement enforcing existing immigration law, they oppose ICE operating in sanctuary cities and they even oppose the very existence of ICE as part of our Homeland Security strategy.

Everything the Democrats support benefits Mexico, Central America and the drug cartels.  Democrat inaction on the border also allows human trafficking and sexual slavery to continue, all while the Democrats incessantly promote illegals’ rights over those of American citizens.

If not bribes by the Mexican cartels to ignore the crisis on the border, why else do Democrats continue to blatantly defy the will of the American people?

Why else do they ignore commonsense solutions to protect the national interest at their own political peril unless their party has been paid to look the other way?

Nothing else makes sense, and you can bet Democrats’ refusal to #BuildTheWall is making Nancy Pelosi and her border hombres mucho dinero.
