President Trump scores two big wins

Less than 2 minute read

July 27, 2019

President Trump has done so much winning this week, I wonder if even he’s getting tired of it.  First, there was the Mueller testimony, which backfired on the Democrats even worse than one of Wile E. Coyote’s ACME roadrunner traps.  Then in the space of just 24 hours, Trump scored two more big wins, both on border security.

Friday, Trump announced a “landmark” agreement with Guatemala to help reduce the crush of migrants flooding into the US and demanding asylum. It would require those who cross into Guatemala on their way to the US from other Central American nations, such as El Salvador and Honduras, to apply for protection in Guatemala instead of at the U.S. border.

Of course, that will still have to get past the inevitable lawsuits rushed into the courtrooms of activist liberal federal judges who have stymied Trump’s efforts to reduce illegal immigration before.  But his other win this week might be a good omen on that front. 

The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 along the ideological divide (that in itself is another Trump win) to overrule lower courts’ blocks on Trump using $2.5 billion in Pentagon funds for border wall construction after declaring a national emergency.  Let’s hope this represents not only a step toward serious border security enforcement, but also a long-overdue reining in of activist liberal federal judges who seem to think they have more power than the President over dealing with immigration and determining national emergencies.  There’s a reason why the writers of the Constitution placed the power to take swift action to deal with a national emergency into the hands of a single chief executive elected by the entire nation and not into the wheelhouse of 535 endlessly-bickering legislators or an untold number of power-drunk federal judges.      

Democrats are screaming in fury (honestly, when are they not these days?)  Some claim the Court is letting Trump spend the money on a “phony emergency” at the border.  Oh, is it a “phony emergency” again?  For a long time, it was a phony emergency, or more popularly, a “manufactured crisis.”  Then when it became so obviously out of control that even the New York Times had to admit it was a crisis, it became useful to call it a real emergency so that Trump could be slammed as cruel for the way the hordes of illegal border crossers were being treated.  Now that Trump has won his court battle to exercise his power to deal with it, I guess it’s “phony” again.  Funny how the objective reality of the crisis changes, depending on what would be the most politically useful narrative for the Democrats. 

And of course, they’re also accusing Trump of using executive orders to try to get around Congress.  Again, remind me: is that bad now?  Because when Obama did it, it was “bold, necessary action” and an example of real leadership. 

Someone needs to issue daily online bulletins to help us all keep up with the constant shifts in the left’s standards of morality.

    How many times did Obama say “If congress won’t act, then I will” ?
    That was never challenged, by congress or the courts, much less that the media and the ACLU.
    Add that to today’s remarks

    Nothing changes from day to9 day ,Trump does good for our Nation Democrats find corrupt leftist judges to block him. So much time wasted to get things done. Sometimes I think we might be better off with a dictator at least there would be no Congress to screw everything up. Lets face the facts Congress has become so stuck on party lines an ideologies that they can no longer function in any real manner to do the work their oath of office says they are there for and that is to work strictly for the people an Country's well being an not for just themselves. If they can't learn to work together we are doomed to fail as a free Country

    Our President has been correct on many issues we have today The Collusion The Border the Economy the list is long and he trying to correct all the lousy programs past administrations as fail to fix usually the the programs they started. Looking ahead, at the intervention of many nations that are trying to infect our elections coming up, another problem for our President is to try and stop it. As the Democratic party put all the effort to blame the Russians to influence the elections other countries are doing the same while the Dems have not a clue what's going on. A lot of Americans (older) understand grasp the wrong doing of the Left the GOP needs to inform the uniformed the (younger) voters that all the issues today are NOT going to be addressed by the people on the Left. They embrace lawlessness they want control of our lifestyle I believe is the biggest wrong doing if you enjoy the police being assaulted vote for the Left the only protection you will have in your regular days and nites activities will be your God. Think About IT!!!!

    Hello Governor, they say great minds think alike. I guess I'm thrilled to be on the same wavelength as your thoughts. Just after answering your poll questions I commented about President Trump winning. I even told how I viewed the last 2 years like a Road Runner cartoon. It also shows that you are on point with what regular Americans are thinking. It really cooks my possum when an out of touch elitist like Don Lemon starts a sentence with "most Americans think" or "the American people know"; when he is clueless outside his liberal bubble. Keep your finger on the pulse of the real people and thanks for standing up for good ole US common sense.

    Democrats are insane and I am sick of them. Let the President do his job and they should be doing theirs but they do nothing but cause trouble.

    This is absolutely excellent news and now President Trump needs to win all cases which the ACLU keep filing trying to stop all border security being implemented. Thank you God for continuing to be help our President.

    Just finished watching Mark Levin and he repeatedly asked the question "what was accomplished with the 2.5 yr Mueller farce. I do not have a Levin account and cannot contact him directly, but I have the answer to the question of what this bullsquat tribunal accomplished. It got the Libs the House of Reps and we got Pelosi back to get our govt back to getting nothing done. Not sure how Mark missed that as he is normally very astute. You and he are two of my favorite opinion influencers. Maybe Mark reads your newsletter and can get this info second hand.

    What is the difference between an Illegal immigrant and an secret invader, don't they both sneak in?

    I went thru voting in the poll asking if illegals should get Social Security, but am disappointed that I had to abandon the poll without being counted after it required me to commit to receiving an unknown volume of email. I wonder how many others either bail out without being counted, or get suckered into to agreeing to open their email accounts to unknown amounts of unknown messages. I admit feeling a bit resentful after going thru the vetting process and having to step away at the very end without my opinion being counted or being shown the momentary poll results.

    Judges overruling Trumps orders:
    Why not tell these Judges they do not have "Standing" to override his Executive orders. Tell them only the Supreme Court can do that. He has executive authority given to him by the Constitution, and they do not!

    get around congress? if that wasn't so pathetic it would be funny. And man do I love winning! Yes, DT is solving problems, making them look folish and anti America He truly IS the only adult in the room it seems. but Republicans in both committees rose to the occasion and filleted the "mueller report"" Which we now knows Bob has little or nothing to do with. Integrity? when, while he was in viet nam? Hasn't had much since. the guy has a history of corruption and ineptitude. Republican met the challenge, they asked the right questions and showed the Mueller report didn't do what it was tasked to do in the first place. I am PROUD of those guy and the one woman who asked questions. We still have a long way to go but it will happen. What is left for dems to run on? They are bleeding voters we've got a known Blexit and I would not be too surprised if we also had a Mexit as well. Libs played their hand, showed their cards and they are ALL against America and we don't like it!

    I look forward to each and every newsletter because I know the truth will be there to read. Thank you. Governor Mike, why do you think the Democrats are so scared of President Trump? They have to be scared or they would be in the "attack mode" since the day he took office, now matter how much good he has done for this country. And secondly a question for you, sir: Why are military bases now allowing women in full Muslim garb (everything covered but the eyes) to be on the base, to shop the commissaries and exchanges? My husband earned that right in his 22 year service. I am not prejudice against the Muslim religion but we saw this yesterday for the first time at Keesler AFB in Biloxi, MS. I have since learned it is in many cities! Your feelings on this? Thank you again for your newsletters and your faith.

    We are being told (here in Mexico) that the new president of El Salvador is an out-spoken born again Christian.
    If true they could change a lot of the political landscape of that country and the economic situation along with it.

    They say Trump is mentally ill, incompetent, etc. Has anyone thought about submitting Tlaib for a mental exam. She is obviously not playing with a full deck. Lunatic is too mild a word to describe this nitwit. How can she serve in congress while using hate speech at every turn. She is an evil hater who is up to no good for this country.

    We are constantly subjected to the lefts double standard every day. It's good if they do a certain thing, but not if a conservative does the same thing. It's a bit like childish harassment. Their own faults are not seen or covered up and excused. Very deceptive! It's time for the truth to be told!

    When these 9th circuit commiecrat "judges" injunct Legal orders of the Executive to further the evil, sinistral agenda and are overturned by a higher court why is there no retribution for the turpitude of the over self-important usurping justice who ruled mistakenly on the case. Loss of position or life might slow the urge to "legislate from the bench" for these good-for-nothings.
