Pentagon Briefing on Syrian Chemical Weapons Airstrikes: Defense Secretary James Mattis “Assad didn’t get the message last year” (VIDEO)
Defense Secretary James Mattis … “Assad didn’t get the message last year”
Following the airstrikes last night in Syria, Defense Secretary James Mattis and Gen. Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, state the airstrikes launched Friday evening were designed to inflict “maximum damage” to Syrian chemical weapons facilities. The Assad regime once again used brutal and illegal chemical weapons to kill innocent women children and other innocents. The U.S., France and UK found these actions unacceptable. Mattis stated, “As our Commander in chief, the president has the authority under Article 2 of the Constitution to use military forces over seas to defend important United States interests.”
A note to the LEFT and the “never-Trumpers” who oppose Trump’s actions when you sat by like obedient Lemmings when Obama used similar action, is your hate for one individual really so much that you would allow the use of chemical weapons against women and children to go unchallenged? Really?
LOL, Even Nancy Pelosi Admits Trump’s USA-Mexico Border Wall is Huge … “This is like a big wall.” (VIDEO)
THIS IS LIKE A BIG WALL … AND THAT IS WHY DONALD TRUMP WAS ELECTED P[RESIDENT!!!
It would appear to Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi that size matters. She was taken aback by the size of President Donald Trump's border wall prototypes. While stammering through her words Pelosi said, "I mean, really? […] This is like a big wall.”
Keep talking Nancy …
Pelosi went on to mock the wall and call it ‘obnoxious.’ She stated that it was a big wall separating people. Separating people, huh? A note to the open borders Leftist Pelosi, it is a wall separating the border of two sovereign countries, where one of the countries people can’t seem to stay on their side. But yet there was no comment from Nancy Pelosi when Barack Obama raised the height of the fence around the White House by 5 feet. The Secret Service said that the ‘Current fence simply is not adequate for a modern era.’ So what is the difference with the fence at the U.S- Mexico border? It is obviously not adequate either. But of course that is different.
“First of all, I think the border– did you see it? How high it is … I mean, really?
In a civilized society, we do something like that. As obnoxious as it is– You know,
that’s a community there with a border running through it. Okay, we have a difference of opinion that,
but a wall that big separating people? I mean really?”
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says border wall prototypes displayed for President Trump this week lack the hallmarks of a “civilized society.”
The old saying “good walls make good neighbors” was seemingly rejected by the California Democrat on Thursday during her weekly press conference. A question regarding a possible deal on “Dreamers” prompted Mrs. Pelosi to bristle at border wall prototypes recently shared with Mr. Trump in San Diego.
“The border — did you see it — how high it is?” she asked. “I mean, really? In a civilized society, we do something like that. As obnoxious as it is, you know that’s a community there with a border running through it. Okay, we have a difference of opinion on that, but a wall that big separating people? I mean, really? […] This is like a big wall.”
DOJ REVIEWING ACTIONS OF OAKLAND, CA MAYOR WHO TIPPED OFF CRIMINAL ILLEGALS …
As reported at the LA Times, the DOJ is reviewing the actions of Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf who tipped off illegals of pending ICE raids. Her actions prevented many criminal illegals to flee and avoid arrest. One has to wonder just how are her actions not criminal in their own right? Whose side is she on? California is now so screwed up that we have mayors who are supposed to follow the laws of the United States, but would rather treat illegals better than they would actual legal citizens. The fact that a mayor helped criminals evade the law is unreal. Hopefully the DOJ will prosecute Schaaf and she will be jailed for her actions.
The White House on Thursday said the Department of Justice was reviewing the actions of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who last weekend alerted residents in advance of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid in Northern California.
“I think it’s outrageous that a mayor would circumvent federal authorities and certainly put them in danger by making a move such as that,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters.
She said Schaaf’s actions were under “review” but would not be more specific.
Justin Berton, a spokesman for Schaaf, said the mayor’s office is unaware of any review and declined to comment further. A Justice Department spokesman in the Bay Area also declined to comment.
Schaaf has defended her statement, saying she felt it was her duty to warn residents of the ICE action.
Oakland, like many California cities, has declared itself a sanctuary for those here illegally, and officials there have vowed to fight President Trump’s immigration crackdown.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP REMINDS DEMOCRATS, AMERICANS ARE DREAMERS TOO …
During last nights State of the Union speech, President Donald Trump reminded all that “Americans are dreamers too.” Trump also went on to say that the “United States is a compassionate nation, that we do more than any other nation in the world to help the needy, the struggling and the under-privileged all over the world.” However, he stated as president, his major and primary “concern was for American’s children, America’s struggling workers and America’s struggling workers.” Trump extended an open hand and asked for Republicans and Democrats to come together and work for together “to protect our citizens of every background, color, religion and creed.” It was met with mutual applause.
Then came the most memorable statement of the night. President Trump said, “My duty, and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber, is to defend Americans, to protect their safety, their families, their communities and their right to the American dream … BECAUSE AMERICANS ARE DREAMERS TOO!” Sadly, those on the LEFT take this as a negative. Imagine that. They are incapable of thinking that American children dream. They are incapable of understanding American exceptionalism. What happened to the America I once knew?
THE LEFT MAY FIND MORE ISSUES AHEAD WHEN IT COMES TO IMMIGRATION …
A Harvard-Harris poll shows that Americans strongly support granting citizenship rights to illegal immigrant Dreamers.; however, it also showed strong support for President Trump’s three demands for a border wall, limits to the chain of family migration and an end to the Diversity Visa Lottery. But in a surprising result, the poll also showed that the public’s demand for lower overall legal immigration. The poll found that most Americans want annual legal immigration capped at 500,000 a year or less, much less than the current annual rate of 1.3 million.
A government shutdown is in the rear-view mirror, but the outlines of a looming immigration deal remain murky with the sides still far apart — though the latest polling suggests President Trump’s bargaining position may be strong.
A Harvard-Harris poll taken in the run-up to the shutdown found Americans strongly support granting citizenship rights to illegal immigrant Dreamers. But they also back Mr. Trump’s three demands for a border wall, limits to the chain of family migration and an end to the Diversity Visa Lottery.
Most striking of all is the public’s demand for lower overall legal immigration — a position that has little traction on Capitol Hill but one that is overwhelmingly popular across the country.
The poll found that most Americans want annual legal immigration capped at 500,000 a year or less — far lower than the current annual rate of 1.3 million.
