Construction of border wall panels underway in California

I have heard a lot of people saying the wall is not getting built but more and more miles are going up everyday. Weather its replacing older fence or putting up new fencing. Its getting done. The problem is its not going up fast enough. Another judge in Calif. has issued a injunction stopping the construction of some of the wall that was being funded by the donation from the military. It should be overturned in the supreme court sometime next year but this just slows down the project.

Another Border Mess That Congress Fails To Fix

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday said she told President Trump he was “scaring the children” with his administration’s planned deportation raids across the country.
“When I spoke to the president, ‘I said look, I’m a mom, I have five kids, seven, nine grandchildren and children are scared, you’re scaring the children of America, not just in those families but their neighbors and their communities,” Pelosi said at an event in Queens, New York, about her Friday evening phone call with the president.

Tax the Billionairs

Billionaires to Trump and other 2020 candidates: Please tax us! Is a article on the CNBC website by Maggie Fitzgerald.

I have read a lot of these articles and I still don’t understand why they want the government to create a special tax just for them. If they want to pay more taxes into the Federal Government nothing is stopping them. They can give as much of their money away as they want. The problem is the government will waste it as soon as they get it.

Trump impeachment: Beto O’Rourke claims keeping president in power is the ‘end of this democracy’

A article I read on Yahoo by Victoria Gagliardo-Silver,The Independent just couldn’t be ignored without a response.

Mr O’Rourke is an embarrassment to the state of Texas. I am not sure where he received his education but his idea of democracy is not what this country needs. If he were elected President America would quickly become a socialist country. Progressivism in government is what has held our country back from becoming even more of a world leader in most all fields. No other country on this planet has done more for the people of earth than the United States of America. We don’t need a One World Order, we need to get the government out of our way. Beto would only increase the size of government and let it control more of our lives. But this is true of all the Democrats running for President in 2020. Now don’t get me wrong the Republicans are not much better but at least there are some that want to reduce the size of the government and follow our Constitution. Trump may not be the best the country has to offer but he is at least heading our country back in the right direction.

And The Show That’s our Government Continues

Are our Congressmen and Congresswomen really representing us? Or are they promoting themselves as celebrities do? It seems that they are doing everything they can to put themselves in the spotlight. If not on TV they are trying to be internet sensations. On Facebook or Instagram or my favorite Twitter. But they are spending so much time with that, what are they doing for us?
