El Chapo’s Cash Won’t Be Used On Trump’s Wall So Look Who Showed Up With $21 Bil For It Overnight

Published

on

President Donald Trump was recently presented with an incredible surprise of who could be paying for one of his most important and expensive campaign promises when Texas Senator Ted Cruz proposed a bill to use $14 billion seized from notorious drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman. The ingenious and perfectly ironic funding source for this important safety feature was met with as many road blocks as the idea for the wall itself. As quickly as that idea was shot down, a surprise financier showed up overnight with the approximately $21 billion needed to foot the bill and you won’t believe where it came from.

The only thing that’s been holding America’s safety and security back is the ability to fund the 40-foot tall wall that’s expected to stretch approximately 1,000 miles along the U.S. – Mexico border. Although the lengthy construction process is already underway, it could be finished much quicker than originally thought after having solved one of the biggest challenges it has faced to date.

“Building ‘a big, beautiful wall’ on the Southern border was Trump’s signature promise during his campaign, winning him support from advocates for hard-line immigration reform,” Politifact reported.

Original estimates for the cost of this project came in at $12 to $15 billion, however, Bernstein Research, who calculates total building cost believes it could actually come in somewhere around $15 billion to $25 billion. The Department of Homeland Security agrees, estimating a specific $21.6 billion price tag for this massive project, according to Politifact. While that total is in excess of the $14 billion taken from El Chapo upon his arrest, the financing problem could soon be solved if Alabama Senator Luther Strange gets his way.

Strange went on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson to discuss his idea of where this much-needed wad of cash could come from right now, and it’s as ironic as using drug money to pay for it. Those who want immigrants in this country don’t seem to have an issue with paying for them to be here, so they should be okay with footing the bill to keep them in their country.

Strange explained to Tucker that the funds should come directly from so-called Sanctuary Cities who don’t follow the law. In essence, this would be a fine for going against the President, not cooperating with local police, refusing to turn immigrants in, and worst of all, actually preventing people from fairly bidding on the border wall. Sanctuary cities like San Francisco, California punish their citizens for participating in bidding on the construction of the wall by banning them from doing any other work in the city. This is not a democracy, it’s a dictatorship decided by liberals and since they aren’t stopping, Strange wants them to pay for the wall that’s already written into law.

The Senator’s simple solution is that cities who refuse to comply with the nation’s law aren’t going to get the money that they expect from the government because it’s going to go to building the wall. It makes perfect sense to not reward bad behavior with cash that could be used to ensure the rule of law which our nation is built on. Sanctuary Cities don’t make their own rules and can’t expect other people to pay for it when it goes against what the president has already set. Rather than defunding these defiant cities, divert the funding and let their laws be the country’s gain.

Along this same line of logic that Strange presented, costs of this wall could also be met it America stopped or slowed the flow of funding to Mexico. It only makes sense to use the money being sent over the border for the barrier between us since we’re also trying to block Mexican citizens from entering America illegally.

This isn’t about keeping good people out and prevent people from wanting to seek a better life and the American dream, it’s only about preventing those from entering the wrong way and wreaking havoc, compromising citizen’s safety, and sapping off our resources. If it’s important to become a law-abiding American citizen and reap the rewards of living in this country, there’s an immigration to follow to prove those intentions.

The next best thing to using a drug lord’s seized money earned from abusing our border is to make Sanctuary Cities pay for it. They can’t make their own laws to harm people and force other people to pay for it too.

BREAKING: Vonn Out Of Olympics Less Than 24 Hrs After Trashing Trump – Her Career Is Officially Over

Published

on

The last 48 hours have been particularly rough for Olympic alpine skier Lindsey Vonn. Ever since she decided to use her public platform to slam our president, she’s suffered the recourse of that really bad decision. She should have learned from the immense fallout in the NFL but refused to. Now, Donald Trump has just gotten the ultimate revenge on the athlete who could be forcibly removed from the 2018 Olympics. Her goals of coming home with another gold medal have just been shattered by her own doing and it didn’t take too long to realize the ramifications.

It’s strange how athletes have no problem using Trump to bring attention to themselves by making such bold public statements, for how much they hate him. What’s even odder, is that they never seem to learn their lesson and can’t stop themselves from slandering him, regardless of the massive ramifications. The latest “victim” of this stupidity is Vonn who just got what she earned when she opened her mouth and said, “Well, I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,”  according to CNN.

Less than 24 hours after a boycott of her sponsors was initiated, Vonn suffered a bigger, devastating blow.

Reuters reports:

American Lindsey Vonn was injured after finishing the World Cup Super G race in St Moritz on Saturday while Switzerland’s Lara Gut crashed halfway down the course.

Vonn, four-times overall World Cup champion and the finest woman skier of her generation, fell to the ground grimacing as she slowed down after the finishing line and she staggered away with what appeared to be either a hip or back injury.

Vonn spent just under an hour in the medical treatment tent before being escorted to a waiting car and driven away. The 33-year-old walked the few metres to the car with great difficulty.

An ambulance was initially called but was not needed.

The U.S. team said on Twitter that Vonn “compressed her back on the fifth gate, skied through pain but didn’t have the power to push. She was evaluated by the physio and doctor in the tent. Further information to come.”

It’s an unfortunate injury that could prevent her from participating in the winter Olympics, which some are seeing as nearly instant karma for coming out and attacking Trump in her initial interview. Vonn is no stranger to pain and recovery, having just spent the last couple years rehabilitating, training, and getting in condition for this Olympic competition after enduring major injuries from her last race.

This is the second blow to the Gold Medalist this week, suffered in the immediate aftermath of her tactless remarks about President Trump.

Fans are already responding to the comments in the same way they did to the National Anthem kneelers in the NFL. A trending hashtag #BoycottUnderArmour has already picked up a lot of steam since she made her anti-Trump statements. We’ve already seen that this is more than words. Pro-Trump Americans will adamantly stand by our president and do exactly as they say they will – boycott a brand, a sport, an event, and anything else that condones anti-American attitudes.

“So UnderArmour wants to attract more #BoycottUnderAmour attention with Lindsey Vaughn? Ok you got it! #BoycottUnderArmour,”  another user by the name “The Warden” posted.

If Red Bull, Under Armour, Hershey’s, and a list of other big brands she represents want to save their good names, they better get this alpine skier to leave politics out of the sport. It’s not going to end well for her or these sponsors if she continues down this steep path, nor is it worth wasting everything she’s worked hard at accomplishing to say such disgusting things. It’s truly astounding these talented athletes are willing to risk so much just to say something stupid.

Let’s also not forget that Vonn is really not in a position to criticize others who she considered to be morally depraved, as one commenter on Breitbart’s story pointed out:

“Nude photo shooting Lindsey who dated drug-addled philandering Tiger Woods now appoints herself a paragon of American virtue? You want to shoot your mouth off and enter politics baby, run for office. You want to suck my tax dollars on the Olympic team and represent me… you keep your mouth shut and focus on skiing, maybe you can win a medal for a change??”

The Olympics is a time and a place where Americans come together and root for the same team. That should have been the message that Vonn shared going into the games, instead of a divisive one. It’s proof that despite their claim of Trump being the divider, they are truly the ones preventing opposing sides from mending as they perpetuate the hate.

Melania Rushes To Hospital And Makes A Miracle Happen – Is Grossly Attacked Before She Makes It Home

Published

on

Melania Trump has a lot on her plate all the time, as a very hands-on mother of a young son, and First Lady of the United States. Both roles come with far more responsibilities than people realize or give her credit for, but that she takes very seriously. She’s kept a very limited staff to keep her costs to taxpayers small, but also because she wants to be personally attentive to all things on her plate.

This time of year is especially busy for a person in her position, with all the preparations and celebrations of the season. However, she dropped it all to do what’s now become one of her most incredible legacies as first lady. This includes conducting a miracle at a children’s hospital that will forever be remembered by who was directly impacted by this blessing. The stark contrast between the former and the current first lady is abundantly clear in these pictures from her hospital visit and what she accomplished while there. Melania has proved that nothing comes before her compassion as she wears her heart on her sleeve and gives it to anyone and everyone who has a need.

Melania was seen with her signature smile and impeccable smile as she visited the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. Hours after returning home from flood-torn Houston, TX, she went from one compassionate effort to the next. She took time out of her day to spend it where she loves, around sick kids stuck in a sterile hospital, which is no place to be during the holidays. She read The Polar Express to these kids who loved to be in her warm presence as much as she enjoyed their company. It’s clear by these pictures that the feelings of love were mutual and genuine. However, she was immediately attacked before even making it back home for on thing she said while there that liberals were quick to contort into a completely different meaning other than how it was intended.

The children had the opportunity to ask the first lady whatever they wanted and the questions were as you’d expect from little ones. They wanted to know her favorite food, favorit Christmas carol, as well as where she would spend the holidays if she could pick just one place. Her answer to this latter question sent liberals into a slander mission, using it against her in the worst way possible.

Like the question, Melania’s answer was innocent and probably not different than what any of her detractors would say.

“If she could spend the holidays anywhere in the world, Melania Trump says she’d take her family to a deserted, tropical island,” this Chicago Tribune reported. “The first lady revealed her wish Thursday during a Christmastime visit with patients and staff at Children’s National hospital in the nation’s capital as she continued a holiday tradition begun more than 60 years ago by first lady Bess Truman.”

Leave it to liberals to detract from something awesome a member of the Trump family does by creating a scandalous side show to make it look like Melania hate being the first lady and desperately wants to escape. Moments after her comments came out, the Internet went into overdrive with their conspiracy theories over a very simple, and common answers. She simply said she wanted some rest and relaxation, like anyone would, and their attack proved why she needs and deserves a deserted island vacation.

People.com reports:

Melania Trump isn’t exactly helping to tamp down talk of her being miserable in the White House.

Just a week after President Donald Trump issued a tweet denying claims that Melania had dreaded her husband winning the 2016 presidential election and didn’t want to be first lady, Melania said something that many have interpreted to illustrate her misery.

On Thursday, during her visit to the Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., Melania was asked by a 10-year-old boy where she’d most like to spend the upcoming holiday.

And to Twitter’s amusement, the first lady replied, “I would spend my holidays on a deserted island, a tropical island ― with my family.”

“Melania Trump’s Christmas wish is for her family to go to a deserted island. Funny, that was mine, too” one Twitter user wrote.

While another said: “I have a feeling a lot of Americans are wishing for the exact same thing.”

But not all Twitter users were so convinced that Melania wanted to take her husband along with her.

Replying to one Twitter user who asked about starting a fundraising campaign for her and her husband, another wrote, “I’m pretty sure she didn’t invite him into the fantasy.”

Not a single liberal was in sight at the children’s hospital helping. They only showed up in comments to critize our incredible first lady for something simple she said that they twisted out of control. Perhaps they should learn from her example of compassion rather than ripping her apart over every innopcuous thing.
