FBI Director Admits Floyd Protesters, Are Possibly Influenced by Foreign Actors

Currently, America is still reeling from protests and riots fueled by the George Floyd incident.

Non-violent and sometimes violent protests continue to pop up, especially in highly populated urban areas.

Protesters have demanded police and criminal justice overhauls, and called out the perceived oppression of minorities.

But all protests might not be entirely caused by general racial and societal unrest. In fact, the FBI is looking into another possibility.

FBI Director Christopher Wray revealed another possible cause when interviewed by Fox’s Bret Baier:

Trump Sends Heated Letter to the WHO

President Trump put a temporary freeze on the United States’ funding of the World Health Organization. The president cited WHO’s response and handling of the COVID-19 outbreak as the cause of this decision.

The decision came with a 60-90 investigation by the administration into why the WHO appeared to follow China’s lead, rather than alert the world to the threat of the virus. That investigation has turned up some concerning findings. Read more…

Trump Orders Navy to ‘Shoot Down and Destroy’ Iranian Gunboats

President Trump has made it his highest priority to keep Americans safe. That includes going hard on our nation’s enemies.

Past presidents seemed to play games with our national security. They drew their “red lines,” then wimped out as our enemies crossed them.

But President Trump has made it clear that if Iran crossed his red line, they will pay. And he just drew another big bright line for the world to see. Read more…

Donald Trump Secures Mideast Cease-Fire

Many in Washington-even a few Republicans-were shocked when President Trump withdrew the few soldiers we had in Northern Syria.

I guess Democrats suddenly want us to be engaged in endless wars now.

Some in the media blamed recent movements by Turkey on Trump-once again blaming him for things others do.

But President Trump is no fool. He doesn’t abandon our allies-and he punishes those who go back on their word.

He sent Vice President Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Turkey directly to set things straight. Read more…

Pelosi Prematurely Celebrates Short-Term Funding Victory

Pelosi and her anti-Trumpers are in full celebration of what appears at first glance to be a win for open borders, but a closer reading of President Trump’s announcement to temporarily reopen the government appears to be one of common sense and deliberation-qualities that the rabid Left are only too eager to reject. The temporary reopening, even as Pelosi began to look more desperate and vulnerable, will further national security (particularly by redressing airport security) as well as get federal employees up to date on their paychecks until Feb. 15. After that, President Trump has given Pelosi an ultimatum to sign off on funding for the border wall or he will declare a national emergency and get the job done. We’ll get the popcorn ready.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Even more Democrats have now publicly taken a position against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s opposition to a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, as President Donald Trump considers an emergency declaration to build the wall with executive authority.

Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI), according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, now supports funding additional barriers along the border.

“Democrats and Democrat leaders should recognize there may be some additional areas on the border that might require some fencing or steel slats … we already have a lot of it down there already,” Kind said, per the local newspaper report.

Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), another Democrat, is calling for Democrat leaders to negotiate with Trump on the border wall–but to do so after the government reopens.

“Open the government first, because you can’t negotiate about anything while the government is closed,” Gottheimer said in an interview with CNN.

Trump Threatens to Shut Down Southern Border “Entirely”

One week into the federal government shutdown, President Trump is vowing to “close the Southern Border entirely” if Schumer and Pelosi continue to reject his demands for $5 billion to finish securing the U.S./Mexico border. “We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with,” Trump blasted through Twitter. The amount in question represents just 0.13% of the budget, yet it has become a nonstarter for the open borders Left. It’s a game of political chicken, and someone’s going to lose big as things begin to heat up in the battle for 2020. What Democrats have yet to realize, however, is that voters are squarely in the border security camp, and it may be too late for Schumer and Pelosi to change their tune.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On the seventh day of the federal government shutdown, President Trump threatened to “close the Southern Border entirely” if Democrats continue to reject his demands for money to “finish” building a wall on the U.S.-Mexican border.

Last Friday, Democrats refused to approve $5 billion for the wall, even though the amount is just 0.13% of the budget. Instead, Democrats — led by Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), expected to become Speaker of the House in January — decided to let the government partially shut down instead.

“We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with,” the president wrote on Twitter.

Flashback: Schumer Admits Border “Far More Secure” with Fence

Back in 2009 when border security was a dead letter with Barack Obama at the helm, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) supported constructing hundreds of miles of border fencing along our border with Mexico. Why? In his own words, fencing the southern border made it “far more secure” because it posed a “significant barrier to illegal immigration.” But that was then. During the same period, Schumer laid out a set of seven principles during an address at a Georgetown University immigration conference in which he detailed, “The first of these seven principles is that illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple.” My how things change when the wheels of political fortune turn. Nowadays, one would think that Schumer, arms locked with Pelosi, is the caped crusader for open borders and the plight of migrants and refugees the world over.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said in 2009 that construction of hundreds of miles of fencing along the southern border made the border “far more secure” because it created a “significant barrier to illegal immigration.”

Schumer made the remarks while addressing the 6th Annual Immigration Law and Policy Conference at Georgetown University about the seven principles he said were the basis of an immigration reform package that he wanted to pass.

“The first of these seven principles is that illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple,” Schumer said. “When we use phrases like ‘undocumented workers,’ we convey a message to the American people that their government is not serious about combating illegal immigration, which the American people overwhelmingly oppose.”

Time to Recognize Israeli Sovereignty over the Golan Heights?

Roger Simon is arguing that with the U.S. disengaging from Syria where a dictator reigns and Iran and Russia remain on the ground, now is the time for the U.S. to officially recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. He writes: “Given the behavior of Syria’s horrendous dictator Bashar Assad…the Israelis would have to be completely insane to give up the Golan.” And he’s right. The more strategically secure Israel is against a totalitarian regime – backed by Iran – the easier it will be for the U.S. to continue backing them. What’s in Israel’s best interest is also in ours. Let’s get to it!

Here’s more from PJ Media…

Now that Donald Trump has signaled the departure of U.S. troops from Syria–to the consternation of many who were urging him to do it in the first place, no surprise–it’s a perfect moment to ease some worries and do something overdue literally for decades: officially recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

Given the behavior of Syria’s horrendous dictator Bashar Assad–gassing women and children while destroying nearly his entire nation to “save” it and creating a refugee crisis that is turning Europe into the ghost of itself, not to mention allying with the homicidal terrorist maniacs in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and Hezbollah and, of course, Russia–the Israelis would have to be completely insane to give up the Golan.

Not even a nuclear bomb on Tel Aviv would get them to leave so Syria can once again rain artillery over northern Israel as they did for decades. Everybody knows that, but few in this country or Europe want to say it out loud.

Left Pounces on Death of Girl at the Border

Instead of blaming the parents of a seven-year-old girl who died at the border for having had no food or drink for several days – despite the best efforts of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) – Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) and her ilk are blaming law enforcement as proof positive that the 6,000-strong caravan of “asylum-seekers” in Tijuana must be admitted into the U.S. “This is tragic. We need a full and thorough account of what happened before this 7-year-old girl died of dehydration and exhaustion in CBP custody,” Harris tweeted. Naturally, the leftist media is using the incident as “proof” the Trump administration hates children and migrants.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

In a true tragedy, a 7-year-old girl died last Friday after she and her parents, along with 160 others, crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally and surrendered to U.S. Border Patrol agents December 6. Eight hours later, the Guatemalan girl suffered seizures and was flown to an El Paso, Texas hospital, The Washington Post reported.

The girl went into cardiac arrest and “was revived,” the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) told the Post. “However, the child did not recover and died at the hospital less than 24 hours after being transported,” CBP said. The CBP also said the girl “reportedly had not eaten or consumed water for several days.”

Now, one might think the parents of the young girl might bear the brunt of the blame. But to liberals and Democrats — especially those who want to run for president in 2020 — the blame goes squarely on President Trump and Republicans.

Caravan Guns for the Border

About 150 migrants from the Central American caravan charged the U.S.-Mexico border toting signs that read, “La paz y Dios” within 500 feet of American soil. The white signs were purportedly intended to signify peace. The response came after President Trump closed the border in order to better secure it against the caravan’s determined charged. The question in the coming days is whether Mexico will be able to control security inside their own country. We’re betting not.

Here’s more from Fox News

A group of about 150 migrants carrying white flags that read, “La paz y Dios,” or “Peace and God are With Us,” separated from the larger caravan near Southern California and inched within 500 feet of the U.S., a report Thursday said.

The migrants said they are carrying the white flags to show that they are peaceful, and will attempt to present themselves as asylum seekers near Baja, Calif., The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

President Trump on Thursday threatened to close the border with Mexico if his administration determines that Mexico has lost control of the situation. The Union-Tribune reported that Mexican federal police held a barrier near a pedestrian crossing and urged the migrants to apply for jobs in Tijuana. Police claimed there are thousands of jobs in the city. Federal police were dressed in riot gear and prevented the caravan from getting closer to the U.S.

Carlos Lopez, a Honduran who was leading the small group, told the paper that the conditions in Mexico are horrible. He said there are sick children and women and children are forced to remain outside in the elements.
