Rand Paul Is A Loser For Sabotaging Trump’s National Emergency Declaration

Constitution, Donald Trump, Homeland Security, IMMIGRATION, libertarianism, Republicans, Ron Paul

Put plainly, Rand Paul will vote against the president’s warranted—long overdue—declaration of a national emergency at the southern border.

Senator Paul, Republican of Kentucky, will “support a resolution that would overturn President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the southern border, appearing to provide the crucial vote needed for the Senate to pass the measure.”

Said Rand (via the New York Times):

I think he’s wrong, not on policy, but in seeking to expand the powers of the presidency beyond their constitutional limits.”

“I cannot support the use of emergency powers to get more funding” for a wall along the border with Mexico, he wrote, “so I will be voting to disapprove of his declaration when it comes before the Senate.”

Mr. Paul joins three other Republican senators — Susan Collins of Maine, Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska — in backing the resolution. His support appears to provide the slim majority Democrats need to send the measure to the president’s desk, offering a stinging repudiation of the declaration.

What Constitution? Like it or not, the original Constitution is a dead letter, having suffered decades of legislative, executive and judicial usurpation.” Doesn’t Rand Paul understand that we no longer have a Constitution? Doesn’t the senator get that “Trump’s candidacy is for the age when the Constitution itself is unconstitutional. 

Trump, as I explained in “The Trump Revolution: The Donald’s Creative Destruction Deconstructed” (published June of 2016), is the “quintessential post-constitutional candidate”

Put differently, in this age of unconstitutional government—Democratic and Republican—the best liberty lovers can look to is action and counteraction, force and counterforce in the service of liberty.

But each blow Trump attempts to inflict on the opposition is met with resistance from self-aggrandizing idiots.

Rand is in shitty company. He is joined by “three other Republican senators — Susan Collins of Maine, Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.”

Asylum Laws: Are Lawmakers Committing Treason Against Americans?

NEW COLUMN IS “Asylum Laws: Are Lawmakers Committing Treason Against Americans?” It’s currently on WND, the Unz Review and Townhall.com.

An excerpt:

The Wall is crucial, but it’s not everything.

Caravans of human cargo are filing into the United States because … they can. U.S. law allows it, even invites it.

Here’s how: Provided you’re not a white, South African farmer—in other words, a real refugee—you may plonk yourself at an American “port of entry,” say San Ysidro in San Diego, and simply assert your right to petition the U.S. for asylum.

Then and there you claim asylum on the grounds that your race, religion, nationality or politics expose you to persecution in the country you want to leave.

Compared to a multicultural mecca like America, where faction fighting is rising, Latin American arrivals seem rather homogeneous. Dare I say they’re largely Hispanic Catholics? Dare I ask who’s persecuting them in their homelands?

By the law’s logic, Muhammadan terrorists entering the U.S. through its southwestern border should have a far better legal case for asylum than Latin Americans: “I’m from Pakistan. I’m an LGBTQ activist, fleeing Islamic oppression. You’d better believe it.”

If you can’t quite manage to locate the legally designated gate, and a “misguided” U.S. border agent attempts deportation, you may, nevertheless, “defend” yourself against U.S. law by—you’re getting the hang of it!—lodging an asylum claim.

The American lawmakers and jurists who legislate and adjudicate immigration generally have the migrant’s back, and will right away accept the “credible fear” yarn he spins. He will thus be granted face-time with a judge. Their stupidity (and venality) is also his signal to vamoose, never to be seen again.

Children are the charm, a magic amulet. Courtesy of the Flores Settlement Agreement, unaccompanied children or adults with children must be released after a brief timeout in well-appointed detention centers. (“Cages,” as Democrat ingrates call this generous gift from the put-upon American taxpayer.)

All a single male or childless couple needs to do is grab a child. Borrow one if there isn’t an urchin handy, and drag him along for the trip. However hirsute and ink-covered your juvenile is; he cannot be detained for longer than 20 days.

Next, “the child” and his adopted Caravan “family” (or predatory parent) rest up in detention, fill in asylum applications and are subsequently cut loose in the U.S. with a nod and wink. (“Come back for your court hearing, amigos, know what I mean? Grin grin, wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more,” as the old Monty Python skit goes.)

Ludicrous? American lawmakers—incontestable majorities on the Republican side included—don’t think so. Why else would they have kept these aberrant, catch-and-release, mickey-mouse laws in place?! …

From Eagle Pass, Texas, To Your Neighborhoods, The Caravans Are Still Coming

Ann Coulter, Homeland Security, IMMIGRATION, Military, Nationhood

Egged on by Ann of Arc, representing Deplorables, the Trump administration has done something small but not insignificant, on the immigration front.

The latest in a string of caravans is also the first to be met with a martial response proper, on both sides of the border, west of Eagle Pass, Texas.

The Administration had discovered a clause in immigration law that lets it replace “catch and release” with “catch and return.” Once they lodge their claim for asylum, migrant interlopers must either remain in Mexico, or be returned to Mexico, to “await their immigration court hearing.”

Yes, from Eagle Pass, Texas, to your neighborhoods; the Caravans are still a coming.

UPDATED: Why President Trump Has Not Yet Declared A National Emergency & Enforced The Border PROPERLY

Constitution, Family, Homeland Security, IMMIGRATION, Nationhood

Retired Colonel Douglas Macgregor tells Tucker Carlson that President Trump has the constitutional powers and the authority—not to mention a duty—to:

* Declare a national emergency on the southern border and, with that understanding, craft an Executive Order to
* Delineate precisely what the army must do to properly repel invaders.
* Instruct the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to get busy on a wall, a task that is not incompatible with the Corps’ broad Mission.

National emergencies are not rare in the nation’s history. Once declared, they have the tendency to become permanent, which will not be the end of the world, in the case of the catastrophe ongoing on the border.

The reason Trump is unaware of these possibilities? As we’ve often said—and the colonel confirms—president Trump has surrounded himself with advisers who intend to sabotage and subvert the America First agenda he promised.

By logical extension, the president is surrounded by individuals who want his presidency to fail.

Causing your dad’s or father-in-law’s presidency to fail: that’s cause for a family feud.
