Build It Now: Two BRILLIANT Ideas to Pay for the Border Wall

375

Senator Luther Strange of Alabama has a novel idea to pay for the border wall, and it isn’t too far removed from President Trump’s promise to make Mexico pony up the money. The Republican thinks there could be a way to tie the border wall legislation to another, interrelated item on the president’s agenda: getting sanctuary cities in compliance with federal immigration law.

“It all boils down to public safety,” the senator said of sanctuary cities. “We say if you’re not going to allow [local officials to cooperate], then we’ll reallocate that money to another jurisdiction along the border so the wall can be built.”

Strange is introducing a bill that would accomplish just that. It would yank infrastructure and transportation funds from sanctuary cities and funnel the money towards constructing the wall.

According to a new report from Axios, Sen. Strange isn’t the only one coming up with out-of-the-box ideas to pay for the wall. The president himself told GOP leaders in Congress this week about another possible avenue towards funding:

In the meeting at the White House today with Republican Congressional leaders, President Trump spent some time talking up his latest idea for the border wall. According to 3 people with direct knowledge of the meeting, Trump floated the idea that the wall could be covered in solar panels and the electricity generated used to pay for the cost.

Of course, why are these schemes necessary in the first place? Because the Republican-controlled Congress doesn’t have the political appetite to actually pony up the money. They don’t have the will to put Democrats on the defensive and FORCE them to vote for funding. They don’t believe there’s enough American support for the wall to make it politically feasible, even though President Trump walloped every other Republican in the primaries on his way to decisively winning the election. These idiots apparently think people pulled the lever for Trump despite actually opposing his signature promise…

The best plan we’ve heard so far is the one where we either tax or confiscate the remittances of illegal immigrants. That would, essentially, be the true fulfillment of Trump’s promise to build the wall “and make Mexico pay for it.” But again, such a scheme takes political will on the part of the GOP, and Republicans have proven time and again that they’re all talk, no action when it comes to illegal immigration.

Thankfully, in the meantime, Trump and ICE are doing everything possible to slow the flow of immigrants across the border and send back the ones who are already here. The president knows that if we wait for Congress to do something…well, just look at the last thirty years to see what will happen.

    Watch out. Liberals can’t stand it that President Trump still wants energy conservation, renewable energy and sources. How dare he build the wall and how dare he make it energy efficient!

    1. berg1928 says

      RE: the wall. They will dig under it, they will still come by sea and aired some who came here legally, will overstay past their time to be here. P>S> And . . . thousands are not Hispanics.

      1. jgfsmf says

        So what. If it deters a few or a lot, it still deters them.

  2. Tiger says

    1.) Stop the benefits to illegals, they are not allowed to have them, use that money saved to build the wall.
    2.) Indeed take the Federal Dollars from Sanctuary cities, use that.
    3.) When you do a drug bust take the money you find and put that towards the wall.
    4.) Send all the illegals in our prisons back to Mexico, use that money saved to build the wall.
    5.) When you stop the refugee programs, take all that money and put it towards the wall.
    6.) Put the 14th amendment back into place and stop the Anchor Babies, lots of money to be saved there, Fine those running the have your baby in America scams. Take the money from them.
    7.) Any money you stop that Obama had earmarked for the UN, Iran or anyone else and put that into the wall.

    Hell so much we can do.

    1. Retired says

      Let the Military build the wall , we have people trained in construction . But then the Gov. contractors in WDC would cry like babies and run to the ACLU that the Gov is taking jobs away from civilians .

      1. Tiger says

        Agreed and under Bush we had National Guard on the border, O took them off. Sad that we are watching a consorted effort to get rid of the first and only president who is not owing to anyone but the people. Shows how low we have gone into the pits of Communism, Islamism and our own death as a Republic.

        1. NotJim says

          concerted effort (“consorted” is a different word.)

          1. Tiger says

            Thanks.

            Some people are secretaries, some are highly skilled expsrienced nurses.

            I ever tell you the spelling and grammar police make me sick.?

          3. Tiger says

            LOLOL well I have two degrees and one is in English, believe it or not I do know grammar and how to spell I just don’t take the time to do it on the net and they grab me and relish taking me down, I pay no attention the purpose of my posts is the message and I think it gets across. If it didn’t I wouldn’t make so many so angry.

          4. Tiger says

            also think on this. Computers today make corrections for you, so many posters who are so adept at grammar and spelling might very well be illiterate assholes who are computer smart and put in those programs. Ya know Vern.

        2. Mathew Molk says

          The Guard units that were there were in a combat roll (Guarding the border) – Building a wall is quite a different thing altogether.

          I have a relative that thinks the skilled trades are just a bunch of dirtballs. – Anybody can dig a ditch, you know. – Well let me tell you. NOT everybody can dig a ditch. In fact very few can. – There is a technique.- I have never had a apprentice electrician that I didn’t have to show the right way to dig. I was taught by a High School Principal, who was a brickie (brick layer) during summer vacation back when I was in the 11th grade and working as a helper.

          The problem is I think there are too many people that watch Bob Villa in our country. It’s not like that on a real jobsite (to start with no shorts, we all wear pants) You cannot just grab a bunch of GIs and have them do a project the size of the wall either. You are going to need Surveyors, Operators, Ironworkers, Carpenters, Laborers (The real skilled trade, not a bunch dunderheads with picks) Electricians, and other assorted trades such as painters – The military is ill equipped for this type of work, even the construction type units are classed as Combat Service Support. Not civil engineering Corperations. (Combat, get it?) – Remember the military has only 2 basic functions, Killing people and breaking things. Anything else is “extra” and not a part of our actual function.

          1. Tiger says

            I am an Army Combat Support nurse since 1988, I served in two wars, our Sea Bees did great feats of building in every war, we have in the military, or at least when I served, surveyors, oerators, ironworkers and every type of specialist.

            The military is capable of putting up a portable hospital anywhere in the world and also capable of sustaining ourselves in any camp condition.

            Maybe today’s transgender and homosexual military isn’t skilled in those fields but I remember a military that could do anything.

      2. Gary Smith says

        True

      3. olddawgtoo@aol.com says

        I have sent hundreds of emails saying or explaining [ we have 5 military branches of service; each or at least 4 have engineer divisions. Use all, build a triple fence with all the tech gadgets and its done. coast to coast in 6 mos. and all; labor, materials, transportation, etc… is already in the fed budget ] for 4 years now i have tried to explain that to fox news, the gop, rnc, and many more. YOU ARE 100% RIGHT ON.

        1. Mathew Molk says

          Sorry their. You aint got a clue. I have been in the trades all my life and served in the military as an Engineer. This is not a job for the military. It would cost orders more to get the job done and it would have to be redone by professional tradesmen in the end anyway.

          1. olddawgtoo@aol.com says

            do the research; I am a vet also. and was a nation wide crane operator. worked in Iraq wirh several different engineer unites for BEK/ brown&root.
            the point; build it with existing federal budget. once done the tradesmen get permanent maintance contract.

      4. Mathew Molk says

        I was an Engineer when I was “IN” – But I also am a retired contractor and I agree . We would scream bloody murder, and as you obviously know nothing about construction or the military, Red Horse, The Corp of Engineers, and the SeaBees would make a total hash out or it BIG TIME. This ain’t like in the movies. That’s not what we are for and there ae not enough guys to do it in all the services put together.

        And ACLU ??????? Where the hell did that come from?

        1. Retired says

          You are all wet , I spent 25 years in the service and worked with Seabees . Crop of engineers are not Military , it is the Corp that screws things up another overpaid gov. group. . It shows you know nothing about how the ACLU screws up the USA .

    2. ernldo says

      Tiger for president!……Also, take Iraq’s oil, as a spoil of war, build the wall in a few weeks from that revenue alone!

      1. Tiger says

        Thank you but I don’t want to be anywhere near the White House or the Congress. Had a few chances to run for Public Office, don’t need the added headaches. LOLOL will just continue to write articles, talk on my local Talk Radio that is nationally syndicated, post and infuriate the Left and especially Muslims who attempt to act so offended by anyone who calls them out.

        1. ernldo says

          Yup, you are doing well…btw, that was NOT a tongue in cheek statement on my part!

          1. Tiger says

            Thank you again.

    3. Glenn Saulsbury says

      The biggest thing is stop giving benefits to illegals then many will leave on their own.

      1. Jon Willey says

        Glenn you have gotten to the root of the problem. Illegals are robbing taxpayers blind
        by receiving pubic assistance their are not entitled to under U.S. immigration statutes.

      2. Tiger says

        That goes for refugees also. Billions on both and not worth it. You are right they leave when the benefits cut off, that has been proven. It is illegal for them to get any benefits.

        1. SD of AZ says

          Or should be. I have asked for years when the spigot was opened and by who. Seems that question to congress is a no go type of black hole. It has never been explained so my guess is some bill was passed in the dark that the congress does not want to come to the light. I think McCain, and the other rinos and dem wits rammed it through. And it might have been done in the 70s or 80s.

          I saw illegals getting public services in the 70s and started inquiring about how this had been allowed. I have NEVER GOTTEN AN ANSWER from any public official I asked. And I asked plenty. Kyl, our old senator Flakey replaced, just told me it was complicated and I would not understand. Right! And me just being an active CPA, Accountant, Business Systems Analyst and Programmer in my working years. Hum?

          I let Kyl know what I thought because his response was so condescending but he never answered the question and then got out with his pension leaving us Flakey. It truly is time to fix this. When I started my inquiries, there was no interest in the invasion of the illegal aliens. I am so glad people have come to their senses and are resisting these criminals. I don’t care who you are, come here legally or DO NOT COME AT ALL. Jumping the border is not legal, it is criminal.

          1. Tiger says

            Sounds like you are thinking clearly and Politicians can’t answer someone smarter than them. We do know that Obama took from SS, Mental Health programs and other government programs to give to illegals and refugees. It all needs to stop and found out a town in Texas pulled all funds and they left. Same happens in Europe they only go to the countries who offer the most benefits.

          2. SD of AZ says

            And I noted the same for welfare folks, they move if necessary to get more from the public coffers. Seems it is long past time to revamp the freebies, welfare, and rules associated with that help. And based on your entire response it is time to revamp the rescuers payment plans from the same public coffers. And I had heard about the rescuers and their resettlement agenda. We have a lot to do in revamping all of the entitlements. And helping the refugees in place is a much cheaper and better solution. No unvetted male moslime arriving in this country with no intentions of assimilating. It is hard to realize that christians would be aiding in this mess but greed and avarice is rampant.

          3. Tiger says

            There are huge refugee camps all over the Middle East that are watched over by International groups and they have everything they need there. They don’t need to come to us or Europe there are 50 Major Muslim countries in this world and they are huge let them take them.

          4. DeanBrunel says

            The Koran requires Muslims to give to the poor , the needy and dispossessed.Various Muslim charities in the U.S. give food, shelter and amenities to refugees and ordinary Muslims who are poor or just down in their luck.It is effective because the Muslim people are very kind and generous, and most obey the obligations set forth in the Koran.Sunnis will help Shias; very much like the stories Jesus told his disciples . We live in a world that is maturing and I for one try to interact with people of as many races, creeds and colors as I can.I have found that most people are alike,compassionate and kind, who want peace and a way to support their families.Dean Brunel

            Snowflake is not a particularly difficult word. Perhaps a crackhead would struggle with the word, but no reasonably intelligent man should have a problem.

            (Ironically, when I saw a recent post of yours wherein you wrote “truely”, as though it were an actual word…my first thought was that you have damaged your brain with excessive drug or alcohol abuse.)

          9. anAmericanByChoice says

            You must have a really small d|ck. You are obsessed with small things and miss the big picture. TRUELY!

          10. Chi Sam says

            No, that is not the case…nor am I obsessed with small things. You merely say that because you have no idea quite what to say, and you lack the ability to say nothing.

            That’s pretty common for your ilk.

          11. Sonny says

            Christians do the same thing! As do most religions.

          12. Mathew Molk says

            And even a lot of secular organizations. So what?

          13. Tiger says

            Pictures are worth a thousand words. The immigrants that came to America, my mother and grandfather were immigrants, who were interred in POW camps for the duration of the war, loved this country, learned the language, shared our values, followed our laws and Constitution, dressed like us, shared the same religious beliefs and were indeed a Blessing to this country.

            Those immigrants were registered, monitored, my mother born in Siberia, monitored monthly and it took close to 9 years for them to get their citizenship. They were no threat to us, they would never and did never fly planes into buildings, run people over with cars, slash them to death, demand any laws or any special treatment or food, never did we need a Homeland Security to protect us from them and they were Americans.

            Sharia Law and the Qur’an are not compatible with our laws or our Constitution, the Barbary Coast Pirates were Muslims, Thomas Jefferson had to fight them, our Founding Fathers warned us about Islam, leaders and men of great importance, 80 I can think of now warned the world about Islam, Muslims the first to come to America and kill over 3,000 of us in less than one hour. They have been killing us here since 1972 and they continue to want to destroy us and the world.

            The only religion any country having problems with now is Islam, even Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and our Middle Eastern allies say Radical Islam must be stopped and all terrorists run out. There are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world, of them world stats show 40% want Jihad and that is more people than we have in our entire country. Look at it this way if millions upon millions of Christians and Jews ran into the 50 major Muslim countries and demanded food, housing, money and medical, then started building churches, synagogues and demanding that the country start obeying their laws, so they could have special privileges on their Holidays in the schools and factories etc what would Muslims do?

            We know they would slaughter them. There is a Christian Genocide in the Middle East, until this is resolved the world must limit immigration and be vigilante.

            Yadja and no I am not a Jew the name is Latvian.

          14. Mathew Molk says

            The want jihad so let’s dance. – Starting right here. Give them 30 days to get the hell out of dodge and then round them up and lock um up. We are at war with them like it or not and if it was good enough for Japanese, Germans, Italians, (and others) in WWII most of who were actually good Americans it’s good enough for these stinking moslems(sic) that by the very fact of being moslems want to kill us.

            Time to pick a side and do something about the moslem problem here in our country.

          15. Tiger says

            Amen and here is a great video by a man who was in Islam for 8 years and pulled out. He is very good with what he says. Bridgette Gabrielle also knows form seeing her family killed in Lebanon. She has been preaching to the masses to wake them up for over 10 years, along with many others.

            Today marches across America against Sharia Law, the Muslims all up in arms, saying it is anti Muslims, Hell NO Sharia Law is anti-America and anti-Constitution.

          16. Uncle Al says

            Why would our south of the boarder neighbors want to come to the US and turn it into a sewer like they left? They should be grateful to even be here. Love it or GO HOME!

          17. Tiger says

            Benefits and lots of them. Appears under Trump they are afraid to sign up for any benefits. They are also leaving and going to Canada along with Muslims here illegally, the border crossings are doown 70%.

          18. Mathew Molk says

            And their foul koran and sick sheria law says they mud either enslave and work to death or kill outright all that are not card carrying moslems(sic).

            You have to be on some heavy duty shit there if you think stinking moslems are even civilized let alone kindly and generous.

          19. anAmericanByChoice says

            Yep, and yesterday I saw a demonstration of about 50,000 Muslims, openly condemning ISIS and suicide bombers, and stating that they want the Qu’ran revised and reformed, so no kufar needs to live in fear of being slaughtered, converted or enslaved, especially Christians and Jews. And then, they handed in a list to the authorities, with names of radicals who they heard conspiring about blowing themselves up in public places. They also handed out a list to the same authorities, denouncing those who want to impose sharia law, and a third list of names of doctors and nurses and people who are practicing FGM, and mutilating their young girls. Then they all gathered together, and held hands with everyone else, and sang kumbaya until the sun came down, and the next morning, when the sun came up, shite!!!, all the Christians and Jews were lying in pools of blood, heads and bodies separated, and the words Allahu AhF*ckbar were written everywhere in kufar blood. It was all taqyia… and the well intentioned fell for it…

            Sure, DeanBrunel, befriend the snake, like in the story, the poor thing is freezing, hold it close to your chest, warm it up, revive it, and then, hope the snake does not bite. Let us know how that works out for you.

          20. keedon says

            Shia and Sunni have been killing each other for 1200 years over a difference in religious doctrine. The refugees fleeing Syria are Shia fleeing the Sunni ISIS. The Quran says that in order for the messiah to come the 12th Mahdi ALL INFIDELS, EVERY OTHER RELIGION BUT ISLAM MUST CONVERT OR DIE.

          21. lovezion says

            They come to us not because they want the benefits, they come to us as part of their plan to invade as many countries as possible and then convert them into a caliphate!

          22. Tiger says

            Yes.

          23. jimdaddy says

            Saudi’s dont have ANY. They are the cause of it all with the salify and wahabi crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          24. Tiger says

            Yes they do, outside of their borders. They have a new king you know. They also have ISIS terrorizing them. They are our in the coalition with Israel and Israel has talks with the UAE. Israel also has an embassy in Egypt.

            We have organizations in America, Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR and others that finance terrorism. It is a worldwide problem, we need everyone to fight. They are right about Qatar, they finance terrorism and have for years.

          25. Mathew Molk says

            So let’s start by running the stinking moslems(sic) out of our country first and then we can talk about the rest of the world.

          26. Tiger says

            You know we know what they have planned for us. FBI said 2,000 open cases on ISIS all over America and they are in every state. CIA told Congress ISIS coming in with refugees and we can’t vet these people. Southern Command said in one year alone over 300,000 men from all over came to America. Tijuana had a deal with Obama to hold thousands of African Muslim men as they waited for the paper to cross into our country. Border Guards told Congress 400 men a day came across under Obama from the worst countries.

            We have Training Camps, Cells, Organizations like CAIR and Muslim Brotherhood backing terrorism along with many other organizations, we know we have Radical Mosques, we have imams preaching Jihad and rape, we have Muslim schools teaching Jihad, we have polygamy they have wives and many children and they live in our country and get benefits, we just picked up a doctor doing genital mutilations on young girls, we have states and town accepting Sharia Law, I don’t think there is any question we need to do something and fast.

            Will we be just like the Jews who were slaughtered by the Nazi for not accepting facts they knew?

          27. keedon says

            Tiger the Saudis have never taken in one refugee.

          28. Tiger says

            Not inside the country as do no other country that is our alli. But they have camps and support them outside their borders and they say they won’t bring them in because they are DANGEROUS. That ought to be enough for an country to understand.

          29. keedon says

            The Saudis don’t like any of those countries.

          30. Tiger says

            Saudi Arabia has a new king. He has put another son in charge that is moderate. Most of the young princes and princesses are not into Shariah Laws. Saudi Arabia had taken out Muslim Brotherhood in it’s country as has all our allies. They are being attacked by ISIS because of their affiliation with the West.

            I don’t like any of those countries either. I don’t want anymore American blood shed there. The only reason I ever agreed to join the military in 1988 is I saw problems coming to America. This isn’t something we or any of our allies can ignore. I want them dead, and then I want our country to focus on our country.

          31. keedon says

            The Saudis are controlled by Sharia Law. They are Wahabi sect. My wife and I are conservative, Life Members of the NRA and God fearing people. I’m aware of what is going on around the world. I was living in Israel during the Yom Kippur War.

          32. Tiger says

            Good for you. I also know what Saudi Arabia is, what it was and what it is today., Israel is part of the ME Coalition, now has an embassy in Egypt and is doing business with the Arab Emirates. Like it or not they are our allies. So what the Hell does you belonging to the NRA have to do with any of this?

            I also am aware of what is going on throughout the world. I lived in Europe for 4 years and the Orient for close to 6 and been to the ME. I also am an Army Combat Support nurse sine 1988 and served in two wars.

          33. keedon says

            Israel isn’t part of the ME Coalition. The embassy in Egypt is now closed once the government was taken over by the military coup.

          34. Tiger says

            Liar yes they are and no the embassy in Egypt is not closed.

          35. keedon says

            Again Israel doesn’t have an embassy in Egypt. She has a Consulate General but no embassy.

          36. keedon says

            That site was dated 2016. After the revolution in Egypt the embassy closed.

          37. Tiger says

            Sigh………………the embassy has only been closed for 5 months now what is wrong with you?

            https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20170508-israeli-embassy-in-cairo-standing-empty-for-five-months/

          38. keedon says

            Tiger all the sites you sent me to were from 2015 to early 2016. All that planning ended when Egypt fell. THERE IS NO ISRAELI EMBASSY FOR THE LAST FIVE MONTHS. There is no diplomatic relations now. It doesn’t matter what was before.

          39. Tiger says

            Listen can’t you read? Do you know how long Sisi been in power? Can’t you understand that the embassy is there, the staff is there and the ambassador only gone for 5 months. Can you not country, can you not reason?

          40. Tiger says

            Headline and look at the date.

            Israeli embassy in Cairo standing empty for five months

            May 8, 2017 at 12:31 pm | Published in:
            Israel, Middle East, News, Palestine

          41. keedon says

            That is right it has been empty for the last five months because Israel closed it towards the end of 2016.

          42. Tiger says

            From the article. Yes there is an Israeli embassy in Cairo, Egypt. Excerpt from the article.

            The Israeli embassy in Egypt launched its new website on Friday, a day
            before the 37th anniversary of the peace treaty between the two
            countries.

            “To mark this occasion, we are pleased to announce the launch of a new website for the Israeli embassy in Egypt,” Israeli envoy to Cairo Haim Koren said in a message on the website on Friday.

            “We hope this site helps bring the people of [our] nations together,” he added.

            Israel reopened its embassy in Cairo in September 2015, four years
            after it was ransacked by a crowd amid public outrage over a cross-fire
            killing of five Egyptian policemen by Israeli forces chasing militants
            in Egypt’s Sinai.

          43. keedon says

            There isn’t the word embassy after Israel in the site you sent me to. 2015? When Hosni Mubaric was arrested in 2011 the Israeli embassy closed. In reality Egypt and Jordan had secret alliances with Israel for many years. Once the revolution started in Egypt the alliance ended there.

          44. keedon says

            Israel gave Egypt back the Sinai in 1979 and hasn’t been there since.

          45. Tiger says

            Again read the article. They were there and the embassy still is there. The staff is still there. The ambassador wants more safety measures and Sisi is taking that seriously and getting it done. But Egypt and Israel are working with one another.

            Israel develops new ties with Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states

          52. Tiger says

            Actually they are smart and they are being attacked by ISIS. I don’t blame them for not being stupid like Europe and under Obama America and Canada and Australia and other nations. Big mistake. There are UN camps all over the place they have everything they need there, they want the benefits given them by stupid countries. They go to the countries with the most benefits.

          53. keedon says

            Iraq is not Saudi Arabia.

          54. Tiger says

            Never said it was just giving you samples of all the camps in the Middle East.

          55. keedon says

            Syria is not Saudi Arabia. Go get a map of the Middle East and look at where the problem is. The Saudis have never taken one refugee.

          56. Tiger says

            Never said it was but showing you all the places in the Middle East that has refugee camps.

            What the Hell is your problem? They have more friggin sense than Europe, Australia and America that your problem? I know where Saudi Arabia is buddy so get off my ass.

          57. keedon says

            What does Jordan have to do with Saudi Arabia?

          58. Tiger says

            Listen I have had enough of you, I am showing again, all the refugee camps in the Middle East those bastards don’t need to come here or anywhere else.

          59. keedon says

            So why do you continue to post about other countries when all I said was Saudi Arabia has never taken in one refugee. I know all about the refugee camps and refugees in the Middle East.

          60. Tiger says

            Because you don’t seem to understand that there are refugee camps allover the Middle East and there is NO reason for them to come to other countries.

          61. keedon says

            Nonsense. Those camps are hell holes. That said I don’t want them here either. ISIS terrorists sneak in with them.

          62. Tiger says

            My mother and grandfather interred in POW camps for the duration of WWII. My father in the Death March, these camps are palaces compared to what my people endured, not to mention the Jews, the 6 million Jews.

            NONSENSE you speak with forked tongue.

          63. Tiger says

            I must apologize to you for my rashness and my attacks upon you. I am getting hardened and I have been fighting this war for too long in the military and on line.

            I am for Israel. I am sick and tired of seeing them kowtow to the world, suffer and explain everything they do.

          64. keedon says

            Apology accepted.

          65. Tiger says

            Thank you.

          66. Tiger says

            The refugees are not all refugees they are going where the money is.

            Why? Did you read the whole article? They don’t want to stay anywhere in the ME. ‘Why the Hell should they when stupid dupes like America, Australia and Europe giving them benefits?

          69. Tiger says

            The bastard PM of Australia is laughing his ass off sending the scum he kept on islands out of Australia to us. Trump a chump for taking them. Send them back to the Middle East.

            Since the deal was done by Obama and not Trump we are at an impasse.

            No impase just say NO.

          72. real talk 1 says

            America have to get rid of the bull- sh-t mind of guilt send these no conforming people out of America how dare the so call leaders allow mosque to be built in this nation you come to America to be as America !!

          73. Tiger says

            The American people have no guilt feelings towards these people, we had no say so when Obama in office, this is why Trump was nominated.

            You are right there are 50 Major Muslim countries and the 75% men who ran into Europe over a year ago, along with the hundreds upon thousands of Muslim men who ran into America, via the refugee program, across our unguarded border etc. were not refugees.

            Actually America does have laws not allowing Islam here, they were written in 1952 and were written to get Communists out of America after WWII, but they speak to those of any group who are detrimental to our country, incompatible with our Laws and Constitution can be thrown out. Thomas Jefferson also stipulated clearly, after he defeated the Barbary Coast Pirates that there was to be no religion tied to any political philosophy but Islam is just that.

            There is absolutely NO reason the families are now on 4th and 5th generations of welfare. These LAZY people need to work or starve. Tough schitt!

            I say this all the time. Its aggravating.

            It is truely agravating. Work or die is my motto!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          78. Franie says

            The Bible emphatically states that if a person doesn’t work, that person shouldn’t eat. Great advice.

          79. Mathew Molk says

            That’s what I have been saying myself too,,,for years.

            I call it the “if you don’t work you don’t eat welfare system”

          80. anAmericanByChoice says

            I call it the wellFAIR system: no work, no food on the table.

            Oh I agree with you a thousand percent!

          85. Mathew Molk says

            It’s the democrat party’s plan to keen them on the plantation. If you cuy off the welfare (like we were supposed to be doing 20 years ago) the kids WOULD go to work, make money, and get out of the ghetto. This is the LAST thing the democrat party wants. – Remember Johnson saying about voting for us for 200 years. He has been right for the last 50. Time to shut this think down. All they are doing is breeding misery for the people in the welfare plantation.

          86. John Milhous says

            Jeepers!!!!, this is soooooooo spot on! …..and, it makes me think, “What if the REAL Citizens of America stood up to boot all of the freebie-dwellers OUT of the USA altogether, AND, give them their own ‘country’ to manage? ….HOW FAST DO YA THINK THEY WOULD ORGANIZE TO STOP FREEBIE-DWELLERS?????”

          87. John Milhous says

            …….Uh, to clarify that, I meant, “HOW FAST WOULD THE FREEBIE-DWELLERS IN THEIR OWN ‘NEW’ COUNTRY ORGANIZE TO STOP FREEBIE-DWELLERS FROM STARTING ALL OVER AGAIN IN THEIR NEW COUNTRY? …..LOL, sorry for the redundancy!

          88. anAmericanByChoice says

            Probation time should be time to learn the language and assimilate. Two or three years should be enough. Don’t want to assimilate? Leave. No benefits, no welfare, no handouts. I would say 98% of all illegals and even some legals would leave if there were no handouts of any kind. But then, welfare should be cut for everyone, unless people really need it, such as VAs, people unable (not unwilling!) to provide for themselves. Put an end to the entitlement mentality.

          89. J_in_TX says

            “Sounds like you are thinking clearly and Politicians can’t answer someone smarter than them”. That’s most people with any education and common sense.

          90. Mathew Molk says

            You need no education at all to understand someone is stealing from you. ANd if the elitists in government from places like Harvard and Yale are any example of the quality of this so called “education” I wouldn’t hire one of them to sweep out the shop. They are totally worthless.

          91. Jim says

            And the d-RAT party always tries to cut defense spending and you can believe many billions “diverted” due to sequestration that obola engineered. Support as many “give aways”=votes and screw US military.

          92. battue_you says

            The six billion dollars missing from the State Department under Hillary Clinton’s watch would have gone a long way towards building the wall. I still find it unbelievable that those missing funds haven’t been in the forefront of a Congressional investigation and why Hillary hasn’t been made to account for it.
            She has been the most criminally adept individual to ever hold public office and not be indicted for her crimes against The State. May she rot in hell….

          93. Jim says

            10-4 all around..

            They are all in the same pocket!! Crooks!!

          95. Sonny says

            Actually two trillion was missing under Obama’s administration and they have never been able to account for it. Some suggest that the gov. used it to build underground shelters for the elite, should something catastrophic happen. Humm.

          96. Mathew Molk says

            Another thing she was responsible for. Lock her up!

          97. Tiger says

            Amen.

          98. Tiger says

            This is what I do know. There are Christian and Hebrew and Catholic organizations making millions upon millions of dollars for bringing them here. The Muslims. They then finance them for a short time and after that the county and state have the obligation to care for them. I also know, from a judgement that stopped Obama’s Dreamer Program that it is against our laws for illegals to get any benefits but schooling. If you go to sites for Food Stamps etc you will see where they actually tell illegals not to say they are illegal to get Food Stamps etc and to claim the help for their children and not tell them they are illegal. It is complicated. But you might find more out from this.

          99. lovezion says

            I know for a fact everything you say is very true. I watch the Spanish TV program that comes daily twice a day (used to be 3 times a day) called “CASO CERRADO”. I tape them and watch them at leisure and here they show how they help the Hispanic illegals with free legal assistance, even psychologists!!!! And the woman in charge gets very angry when the illegals call themselves “illegals” (ilegales) and she insist there’s no such thing as illegals, only “undocumented”. Also when one of them is afraid to remain here as illegal and wants to go back she calls all kinds of experts and all try to convince the person and all his/her family to stay. Also help them to bring others here. Anad very many of them stupidly confess on TV how they steal, rob, rape, kidnap (for money) AND buying and stealing social security numbers, etc. and so much more. I see it and hear it and can’t believe it.

            In one case one of them came accusing the other as identity stealer because when he asked for a job and was asked for the SS# he was told another person with his name had the same SS#. After some investigation right there in the show it was discovered that one of their fathers had bought or stole the cards and SOLD THE NUMBER to the other buy’s father many years ago!!! This and a many variations of this theme happens daily!!! The corruption of the illegals can go much deeper with murders, false Last Testaments AND of course drug/alcohol huge business gangs!!!

            The stupid gov. who accept this either are truly stupid and/or greedy cynicals profiting off them!

          100. Tiger says

            Thank you for this, I also watch International TV and read the International news daily. When a country has an attack I go to their news. People in America, millions haven’t a clue and what they don’t know will kill us.

          101. PatriotGal says

            Agree, Tiger; we do the same.

          102. John Milhous says

            You are sooooooooooooooooooooooo RIGHT!!! Something I saw on twitter a while back said, “If they (illegals) are ‘good for our economy’, why aren’t they good for their (Mexico’s) economy???

          103. Mathew Molk says

            That’s snowflake geek speak. They bend everything.

          104. John Milhous says

            “Snowflake geek speak?????”

          105. Law.Abider says

            If you notice, they don’t “actually” say good for “our” economy; they say good for “the” economy. Whose economy? Mexico’s economy.

          106. John Milhous says

            I suppose you are right. But, “whose” is a fairly good certainty of being implied in the context of that twitter post. While, in reality, the dirtbag, worthless government of Mexico is literally DUMPING their undesirable folks in the USA…………as evidenced by the FACT that they actually “send” their scum here WITH INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO SPONGE OFF OF OUR ECONOMY (WELFARE, ETC) FOR A FREE RIDE. And, our idiot politicians, AND A LOT OF IDIOT “already here” illegals, quite emphatically, encourage the “giveaways”! ………and, as the illegals continue to sponge off of the USA, (criminals as soon as they arrive “illegally”), continue to call Americans, “Estupido Gringos”!

          107. PatriotGal says

            Oh no! How can you let the powers that be know what’s going on, lovezion? Oh, wait…they probably know and are ignoring it. Can we start any kind of petition?

          108. vevaqus says

            Yes, to both. Sen. McCain calls them “all God’s children”. HE is the nut. He’s going to live to 100, so work harder to boot him OUT! All persons in Federal & State governments need term limits, EVERYONE out by age 70. Require tests to check for dementia!! Terms for SCOTUS’ justices should be limited, also. Why pay someone to do the work for a justice who can’t stay awake at work?

          109. lovezion says

            BTW, Hebrews don’t bring them to the USA, they bring them to Israel which is just as bad!

          110. Ellen says

            If they are Hebrews and they are brought to Israel, why would it be sad? It is their country, isn’t it?

          111. lovezion says

            Hi Ellen, of course it wouldn’t be sad at all, on the contrary :o) but I was answering this sentence from Tiger:

            ” There are Christian and Hebrew and Catholic organizations making millions upon millions of dollars for bringing them here.”

            When I said “which is just as bad” I meant IF even Hebrews made money out of bringing the rogues here. 🙂

          112. Tiger says

            Amen.

          113. Law.Abider says

            No, there was a documentary I saw online that showed a synagogue here in the US welcoming Muslims. They DO “sponsor” them!

          114. lovezion says

            ARGH……. This is SO frustrating!!! I suspected this from the renegade traitor jews who bring shame to the rest of us!!! It seems they didn’t have enough torture/murder from hitler’s time – they need the arabs to continue this disgrace….. 🙁

          115. PatriotGal says

            Tiger, why do we allow schooling for ILLEGALS? It is a boondoggle – instructional materials (books, discs, etc.) and all paperwork including correspondence with parents MUST be in their native language, not in English – to “prevent any misunderstandings”. Each child is to have an interpreter in their language and in some cases their dialect. Moreover, most of the ILLEGALS are poor, thus qualify for FREE BREAKFASTS and FREE LUNCHES – no, not cereal and peanut butter sandwiches, but MEALS – much of which is thrown in the trash because it’s not to their “liking”. Does anyone understand now many billions are being spent on that alone for ILLEGALS?

          116. Tiger says

            I haven’t a clue and we have been raped for every penny we have through Obama and others and it needs to end.

          117. Tiger says

            I live in Florida this school year one small county was flooded with 800 students they didn’t expect, Muslim and illegals. The big town down the road from me has a shortage of teachers and money.

          118. Gen11American says

            Despite the outcry of Conservatives, the Trump Administration has just approved “temporary” amnesty for an additional 100,000 DACA dreamers! Anyone care to bet on whether US taxpayers are footing the bill for their education in addition to all the social-welfare benefits they’re probably receiving as illegals? This insanity has got to STOP! US taxpayers are forking out $120 BILLION per year supporting illegals but Americans put out of work during the past 20 years are being denied benefits continually! Due to the influx of immigrants, foreign workers, and illegals, one in five American families now have NO member of their family working at all, and our wages and standard of living have been declining steadily as a result of deliberate policies by BOTH PARTIES!

          119. Tiger says

            Of the many and I mean many good things Trump has done and is doing, massive things like pulling us out of TPP, getting out of NAFTA and out of the Paris Accords, a death sentence for us he has done things his followers don’t like. The Dreamer’s crap is just that and he will most assuredly hear from his constituents.

          120. Tiger says

            Those who have committed criminal acts will be deported, daily the feds are picking up not only illegals etc but Muslims here illegally that have broken our laws.

            If the border secure, the laws in place as they seem to be, 70% down for illegals coming across our borders, the Sanctuary Cities suffering and illegals now afraid to apply for food stamps etc. these so called Dreamers will die out. Like a feral cat program where the cats are fixed and they go away so will these people.

            Now I will get it for using the feral cat program as an example.

          122. Franie says

            In my opinion, LBJ with his welfare crap started this influx for more democrat votes! It goes all the way back to that criminal who had President Kennedy killed to initiate his scheme that the democrats are STILL utilizing to this day.

          123. Mathew Molk says

            Yours and that rotten bastard’s too. “We will have those noggers voting for us for 200 years” – His words. not mine.

          124. Ellen says

            And the mayor of Chicago is doing everything he can for the ILLEGALS to get access to social services and benefits, etc. President Trump should look into this sanctuary city and cut off funding immediately.

          125. Mathew Molk says

            Arrest the mayor, police chief and other high ranking persons in the government under 8 U.S. Code § 1324 – Bringing in and harboring certain aliens

            5 to 10 years in the calaboose PER illegal harbored or employed. – The law is on the books and has already stood the test of constitutionality. Throw Mr. Emanual

            in the clink and all the other sanctuary cities will collapse like a cheap Chinese lawn chair.

          126. mary says

            I agree that illegals should not get any services. Back in the 90’s I applied for disability due to a car accident that left me permanently disabled. Most all of the people at the office did not speak English and each one walked out with a check. I was denied for BS reasons. Not because I was not injured but because I was a married American woman.

          127. Mathew Molk says

            Just be glad you are not a working white man. We are the most disadvantaged under the law of anybody. Being a working white man automatically disqualifies you for anything. It’s part of our “White Privilege”

          128. PatriotGal says

            SD, completely agree with your post including the condescending attitude of those in Congress. Many have never held positions unless lawyers and I don’t count that. How can they, in good conscience, take 120 days off in the House and 83 days off in the Senate? Supposedly, to return to their districts to meet with constituents…right. Seems every time we turn around, they’re on break while what is critical to the voters, the President and our beloved America is not considered “important”. Having worked, as do you, vacations never exceeded two weeks, EXCEPT in critical instances. IMO, if they don’t accomplish goals, NO BREAKS till they do. That includes repealing and replacing OWEbamaTAX and the tax reform. Their dallying is totally disgraceful.

      3. SD of AZ says

        Stop the public coffer give aways but also nationalize E-verify. That takes congress getting off their butts and actually doing something but Trump could always use the edicts like Bzo did. No feebies, no jobs and the bulk should leave but that still leaves the criminals here. We still need the wall and even the military and the end of sanctuary anything. And NOT ONE MORE AMNESTY EVER! That put the illegal alien invasion on steroids thanks to Reagan back in the 80s. Rewarding criminals and giving them an incentive to come. STUPID! But it was done even then to kick start the real agenda of the NWO. Do not forget that BUSH Papa was the VP for Reagan. And that entire Rino Family is for the NWO agenda. This last Bush Boy confirmed that while he campaigned. And had it not been for Trump, he was going to be the pick of the liter for the GOP! Just like Hillary! And we were being steered!

          I don’t care,,,,,We got our own children to take care of.

      5. LB says

        How about if we stop the pensions that the elected “TRAITORS” receive after one term in congress and use those funds to build the wall. Also get the non-violent offenders in our prisons to build the wall, and give them one day off their sentences for each day they work. That would get them back to their families earlier, and put their stupidity to good use. It would also cut the costs of their incarcerations.

      Or maybe let the Fed. prisioners do it

      1. Tiger says

        Enough of them for sure.

      2. Mathew Molk says

        You are one of the fools that think anybody can be a construction worker. It just isn’t true. There is a reason both my sons (one electrician and one ironworker) paid tax on over 100 grand last year and it’s not because just anybody can do the job.. – This is not Bob Villa Kitchens and Bathrooms, there pal. The wall would be the real thing.

    5. Gerald Mitchell says

      Great ideas. All of them. Lets see if the Republicans have the balls to back Trump and move forward?

        When they see voting reactions to the RINOs in ’18, they may take another look at their gutless (non) actions….

        It’s long past time Conservatives and Republicans ask their wives if they can dig through their purse and borrow their balls for a while.

      You have been thinking , Oh that all supporters would do so. I too have been thinking of ways to get by the debris that is called democrats that are hanging on in congress mooching every perk they can get. Thanks again Tiger

      Hey Tiger you speak like an open book!!! Every one of your lines should be done and we’ll have the wall built in no time! Twit the President with this list. I’m sure he also thought about these things but it’s good to show him that we too want the same thing that he wants. 🙂

      1. Tiger says

        Thank you I do and millions of us do we email the WH etc but I am on no Social sites but anyone who wants to tweet this to him is welcome to the ideas. That goes for anything I post.

    12. Karma says

      Amen, they could also sell all the weed confiscated to producers of cbd oil, or medical mari j facilities…quit totally tearing drug hauling vehicles into scrap like idiots, hire qualified mechanics to neatly disassemble them, get out the drugs, reassemble and sell for top $, use the ones trying to cross illegally like alabama chain gangs for oh 60-90 days each, working on the wall, etc, etc

      1. Tiger says

        Great stuff.

    13. RockinOn says

      Amen Sis, Been saying the same things, use all the money given away to illegals, send the criminals back and save the expense to prison systems, use all drug money and assets of drug cartels/traffickers, confiscate items from criminal aliens and auction them off for funding the wall, should be no such thing as an anchor baby anyway. If an American is born in France or any other country while visiting does not make that child a natural born citizen of those countries. Check the rules from the Mexican government, if we just went by those rules, those people would not be here for sure. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/306ffe15a5dabf18d827cfcc2ee1a56fa85adf955cb3dc22ca38f8be05aa15ed.jpg

      THE HIGH COST OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS -$113 BILLION PER YEAR.

      It
      is no secret that the southern U.S. border is open, allowing thousands
      of people to pour into the country illegally. Ironically, Congressmen
      on both sides of the aisle in Washington are not inclined or don’t have
      the will to do anything about it. Although most support legal
      immigration, there are huge differences on how each side believes
      illegal immigrants and the security of our borders should be handled.

      Liberals
      generally support amnesty for those that enter the U.S. illegally.
      They also believe that ―undocumented immigrants‖ should have all the
      educational and health benefits that citizens receive including
      financial aid, welfare, social security, and Medicaid.

      Conservatives
      are against amnesty for those who enter the U.S. illegally. They
      believe that those who break the law by entering the U.S. illegally do
      not have the same rights as those who enter legally and obey the law.
      They also believe that the Federal Government should do a better job
      enforcing current immigration laws.

      Whether
      you call them ―illegal immigrants‖ or you call them ―undocumented
      immigrants, the undisputed fact remains that when a person crosses the
      border without the proper authority, he/she is breaking U.S. immigration
      law. Just to be clear, there may be some immigrants that had green
      cards (or other legal authority) that either did not renew or replace an
      expired or lost card. This would be analogous to someone who let their
      driver‘s license expire and then proceeded to drive a car. They would
      be doing so illegally. Nevertheless, to put all illegal immigrants into
      the undocumented immigrant category is ludicrous.

      It
      is estimated that there are between 11 and 30 million illegal
      immigrants in the country and that they account for 13.6% of all crime
      in the United States. No matter where you stand on this issue, the
      facts show that the direct and indirect financial costs are enormous.
      The following 2013 statistics were extracted from the website
      fairus.org.1 Illegal immigration costs U.S. taxpayers about $113
      billion a year at the federal, state and local level. Most of the costs
      (around $84 billion) are absorbed by state and local governments. That
      amounts to an average of $1,117 per household. The variance per
      household is higher or lower depending on the demographics of illegal
      alien populations. Education costs absorbed by state and local
      governments are estimated at $52 billion annually. Although illegal
      immigrants that work are required to pay income tax, most don’t. Those
      that do get much of it refunded because they are in such a low income
      bracket.

      According
      to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, illegal immigrants residing in the
      U.S. send $50 billion back to their home countries each year.2 When you
      include legal immigrants, The World Bank estimates the amount to be
      $120 billion.3 That is money that is not put back into the U.S.
      Economy.

      According
      to National Review, $1.87 billion was spent in 2014 on incarcerating
      illegal criminal immigrants.4 In 2009; the Department of Homeland
      Security estimated the percentage of illegal immigrants that are
      incarcerated to be between 11 and 15 percent of the country’s prison
      population.5 Almost all the financial burden was shouldered by the
      states. The State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP), which is a
      federally funded program, does pay for some cost.6 However, it does
      not really matter because it all comes out of taxpayer dollars.

      The
      Government Accountability Office (GAO), using official Department of
      Justice data on criminal immigrants in the nation‘s correctional system,
      reported the following: – Between 2008 and 2014, 40% of all murder
      convictions in Florida were by criminal immigrants. In New York it was
      34% and Arizona 17.8%. In addition, during those years, criminal
      immigrants accounted for 38% of all murder convictions in the five
      states of California, Texas, Arizona, Florida and New York.7 That 38%
      represents 7,085 murders out of the total of 18,643.

      It
      gets worse: Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) removed
      (deported) 235,413 criminal illegal immigrants nationwide in 2015, 49%
      percent of whom had previously been convicted of a criminal offense.8
      Although the numbers are down since 2012, they are still substantial.
      Do the reduced numbers mean that there are less illegal immigrants
      coming into the country or does it mean that ICE has less resources to
      do their job or does it mean they are told to stand down? In 2013 and
      2014 ICE set free more than 66,000 illegal immigrant criminals who had
      over

      166,000 convictions (30,000 for drunk or
      drug impaired driving, 414 kidnappings, over 11,000 rapes or other
      sexual assaults, and 395 homicides).9 Since their release, many of
      those have already been convicted of new crimes including felonies.

      It
      gets worse: The invasion of illegal immigrants has established and
      empowered many in the form of street gangs. Their growth is fueled by
      money obtained easily through drug smuggling and sales. A 2011 FBI
      report makes many connections between the Mexican drug cartels and
      various U.S.based gangs.10 An out of hand financial and social
      disruption cost to American citizens just continues to grow.

      To
      make matters worse yet: Laws in sanctuary cities help shield illegal
      immigrants from deportation, despite astonishing statistics on violent
      crimes committed by illegal immigrants. These laws, in many cases, are
      in direct opposition to Federal immigration laws. Sadly, the U.S.
      Senate refuses to crack down on America‘s nearly 300 sanctuary cities.

      A
      2014 Reuters article stated that a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed that 70%
      of Americans are deeply worried that illegal immigration is threatening
      the nation‘s culture and economy.11 Concerns include job losses, the
      social landscape, how much insurance costs rise, and other related
      issues.

      Since
      illegal immigrants typically take low skill, low paying jobs, it would
      be logical to surmise that some portion of those jobs are being taken
      away from legal immigrants. When that happens, few good choices remain
      for them. They are usually left with the choice to go back to their
      home country, get some kind of aid, or enter a life of crime.

      Illegal
      immigration is totally out of control and our elected leaders know it.
      Securing the borders and fixing the illegal immigration problem should
      be demanded by the American people. Unfortunately, only about six
      percent of the population thinks it is a major problem (a sharp decline
      since 2014). They are either not aware of the enormity of the issue or
      they are more concerned about other issues.

      The
      social landscape is rapidly changing and it puts all legal citizens at
      risk for the security of their families and homes. As a consequence, it
      reduces their choices as to where they live, shop, and travel.

      1. Tiger says

        Great stuff thank you for all the ducks in a row, millions know this but too many millions don’t.

    15. Ellen says

      You are absolutely right. Maybe you can email this to President Trump?

      1. Tiger says

        I have. There was a time many of us were asked weekly how Trump was doing and what needed to be done. We are the ones who sent him the story of the little girl Hillary blamed for her rape and he had that grown woman now, with the women raped by Bill sitting on the front rows. But no more. haven’t heard a thing.

    16. Sonny says

      Tiger – Right on Target! The only reason Democrats don’t want a wall is that they loose all those illegal votes. And these idiots are worried about the Russians? Give me a freaking break! They’ve done more to destroy this country than anything the Russians can do! What a disgrace these people are to this country! Also… Another way to pay for the wall would be to charge a $5.00 toll to every car coming out or going in to the country! Don’t think that’s much to ask!

      1. Tiger says

        Sonny great proposal and so clearly and honest truth what you say about the Left.

    17. John Milhous says

      YOU are a true Patriot……….and, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMEN TO YOUR IDEAS!!!!!!!!

      1. Tiger says

        Amen

    20. John Wirts says

      Well not all or even a majority of the Illegal Alien Invaders come from Mexico, They are coming from Central and South America through Mexico. I say demand the country of origin take back their criminal invading citizens, or face total embargo, no trade to or from the U. S., and no visas to or from that country. Companies that left the U. S. for cheaper wages could no longer export their foreign made products to the U. S.. Require reprocessing e-vfy on all employees, since it has not been used for years. Any employee failing e-vfy, should be checked top see if taxes were paid on wages and social security! If not fine the business for tax evasion and collect back taxes with penalties!

      1. Tiger says

        Sounds good to me.

    21. anAmericanByChoice says

      El Chapo’s money… someone mentioned that… Was it Ted Cruz? That would be a good chunk!

      1. Tiger says

        Indeed I remember that and what a great idea. Same from the money collected from Drug Dealers across this country, if you can get it out of the police.

      2. Tiger says

        Good memory it was Cruz he is introducing great bills left and right, I once really admired him but some of his antics in this last election disappointed me along with that awful wife of his.

    22. Gen11American says

      91% of Middle Eastern Refugees Obama flooded in are receiving food stamps.
      73% of them are receiving free medical care on Medicaid paid for by stripping $800 Billion from Medicare.
      68% of them are receiving cash welfare.

      What the US needs to start doing is refusing to take in ANY immigrants who don’t have the means of living and functioning independently without burdening US taxpayers. Instead, we’ve allowed in uneducated, unskilled, non-English speaking Muslim families with up to 18 kids! Any nation that stupid and gullible will not survive for long! Nor did Barack Obama intend it to!

      1. Tiger says

        Facts are right on and you and millions of us are ready to stop the insanity.

    23. real talk 1 says

      Now this is not Fake News it’s the truth we just have to do t and do it now or pay the price !!!

      1. Tiger says

        They cost us billions every year. Thee is good news under Trump our immigration laws back in place. The illegals crossing our borders are down 70%. Daily illegals Muslims and all being picked up if they are felons or criminals. The illegals are afraid to ask for food stamps or anything else under trump. Muslims here illegally along with others are running into Canada. They are concerned now at that border. Changes are coming it will take time.

        FBI says 2000 active cases ISIS right now and ISIS in every state.
        CIA told congress under Obama refugees can’t be vetted and ISIS coming in with them.
        Southern Command said over 300,000 men crossed into America under Obama in one month alone.
        Obama had a deal with Mexico and Tijuana for them to hold thousands of Haitians along with African Muslim men until they could get their cards to come in.
        Border Guards under Obama told congress 400 men a day come here and they are from the worst countries Obama told them to let them go.
        Trump can’t get an actual account of how many here.

      2. Tiger says

        Even with Trump in office so much not reported to the American people.

      3. Tiger says

        I could go on all day with the protests and riots and burning of our flag and all. Hope you share all this.

    24. Gloria says

      Tiger: Your idea is brilliant but congress does not have the political appetite to do their job! This would require dealing with the radical progressive democratic movement … Our country has moved so far left that common sense isn’t view as normal. President Obama has changed this country for the worst and nobody wants to fix what’s broken. Senators like John McCain and Lindsey Graham trash our President and work very hard to undermine our values. Americans who want their country back need to elect new blood replacing those who like the status quo. We need people who believe in our constitution and who are willing to fight for their constituents. Wake up America! Freedom comes at a very high price!

      1. Tiger says

        Thank you and you are correct. What we don’t have anymore is a Republican Party and a Democrat Party, all we have is a Progressive/Communist Party. McConnell, McCain, Graham, Rubio and others are heavy on the Soros payroll and that has now been exposed.

    Trump priceless! We did fund bin Laden and Saddam – what a fukwit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. k9maiden says

      Talking about yourself mrshithead? LOL How did the Comey testimony work for ya! I’m laughing my ASS off, you liberals eating crow along with egg on your face. No one with a brain and common sense cares what you, a stupid troll thinks! We love our President, and happy the REGIME is out, and looks like CNN and the Marxist Media has been had too! Are you anarchist going to destroy other people’s property in retaliation. Get out of our country you damn Communist!

      1. ernldo says

        We’ll get to the point of escorting a$$wipes like mrpoophead to the border as well. Best leave now and save a few broken bones, gro….

      2. mrpoohead says

        Didn’t really care about Comey- find it very sad that he was even required to testify. What an embarrassment – not even six months and the President is already found wanting. Sad!

        Doubt everyone loves him only 25% of the electorate actually voted for him. 50% had more sense than to vote for either! Both repugnant, neither worthy – at least we have the bigger joke, entertains me everyday. What a farce!

  4. gotabgood says

    You are still talking about building the wall and nothing on the hearing today… you do know that Comey is testifying today don’t you?

    1. Retired says

      That is nothing more than a circus show , yesterday it was released what Comey would say ,and now the Media will tell the public what he said and what it meant .

      1. Laddyboy says

        I totally agree that the “hearing” is a total FRAUD on the American People. In all honesty, how can ‘j.comey’, the grifter for HilLIARy give his answers to America the day BEFORE he is asked the questions? I call this a FRAUD on the American People.
        SHAME on congress for allowing shenanigans such as this!

    2. k9maiden says

      Hey, how about that hearing? All you loony liberals lining up at bars to drink yourselves into a stupor during the day, pretty damn sure that this testimony was going to fulfill all your little dreams, and what a great day it was, it proved the Marxist Media is nothing but fake news, and PRESIDENT TRUMP had nothing to do with Russia so let him get back to business of fixing this country that you liberals turned into a cesspool under BO! If anyone should be investigated, it is BO and KILLARY’S blatant support of our enemy, and supplying them with weapons, in case you don’t realize it, that is called TREASON! The Marxist Media has protected these heinous criminals in the last Regime enough, I hope to HELL if you liberals keep it up, you will fall flat on your faces and BO will be revealed for the absolute truth of what he was, the enemy, a KENYAN/MUSLIM/COMMUNIST/IMPOSTOR who hated America and was bound and determined to destroy our Republic and turn it into an Islamic Caliphate. Go away troll, no matter how hard you loons and the media try, Trump ALWAYS COMES OUT ON TOP! I’m loving it!

      1. Ronald Starkey says

        How about instead of investigating just Killary and BO some organization (Judicial Watch) launch investigations against the RINO’s . The people resisting the President are most likely in bed with the Libs.

      2. gotabgood says

        Let’s start by saying he called Drumpf and his administration liars and the rest went behind closed doors.
        You really need to get help with the hate inside you…. why do you still bring up Hillary? She lost didn’t she? Get a life…
        And by the way even your leader said Obama was an American..

    3. ABO says

      Catch up with the real world and read his testimony word for word at the Wall Street Journal’s website under live coverage/ ex fbi director-james-comey testimony. I’m sure you will be disgusted to see the truth finally laid out but the world doesn’t revolve around you so grow up and read.

    There is NOTHING in the Constitution that requires the federal gubbermint to give ANY monies to local or state gubbermints. Therefore, the feds can WITHHOLD ALL monies from the sanctuary cities, counties and states!!

    Why not use both of these ideas? They both seem like good strategies and could achieve the goal faster and pay for it quicker.

  8. TexRancher says

    How much in aid are we sending to Mexico? Start cutting that.
    Remember that Mexico is conspiring with other So. American countries to get their citizens through Mexico, helping them with assistance and giving them booklets with instructions how to circumvent our security. Why should we be paying Mexico to work against us? That doesn’t even count the terrorists coming in through Mexico.

    1. MARLENE HESSLER says

      Take all the aid that is being paid to countries south of the border and use it for the wall.

      Also, all the assets that are confiscated from crimes done by illegals, El Chapo for example.

      1. disqus_3BrONUAJno says

        It would be cheaper and more efficacious to merely bring all our troops home from the countries that they are terrorising and let them do their proper jobs of securing our borders.

        1. MARLENE HESSLER says

          The problems with your theory here are multiple.

          First. The usurper of the previous administration imported the warrior aged people of terrorist countries to OUR country thereby destroying the sovereignty of OUR borders.

          It is always preferable to fight a war on foreign territory than on domestic region.

          Second. Your logic is flawed much as all liberal ‘logic’. For instance the words of Diane Feinstein that any potential gun assailant will lay down their weapon rather than use it when faced with an unarmed group. Wonder what she was smokin’ with that winner statement.

          1. disqus_3BrONUAJno says

            The sovereignty of our borders went the way of the dodo bird when our troops left that sovereignty to commit treason against another sovereignty.

          2. MARLENE HESSLER says

            Sorry, it appears you are the dodo bird. A waste of time talking to a doo doo bird.

          3. disqus_3BrONUAJno says

            You just now realized that after getting no response from an extinct species?

          4. disqus_3BrONUAJno says

            Talking to you gives one a better understanding of why our government is so dysfunctional.

    … that’s why the Right wanted a non-politician in the White House instead of a typical politician who would never have thought of such a BRILLIANT idea!

  10. shref40 says

    The FENCE need not be expensive. Just two lines of posts every 50 feet that wildlife can get through. One would be along the border, the other 2 miles inside the US. A sign on each post carries a warning written in Spanish.

    Between the two post lines is a NO LAW ZONE. There is absolutely no rules about what happens there except one: You must carry a shovel and clean up your messes.

    Anyone reaching the second post line becomes a US citizen. Activities between the post lines would be handled by American volunteers, not government employees.

    The FENCE would cost less than 1% of best estimates. And once the word got back, it would be 100% effective..

  11. MARLENE HESSLER says

    The constant cost of repairing solar panels that the would be invaders would damage would negate any savings by their use.

    Not sure that idea would be totally feasible.

    However, there lots of other ideas that would work.

    And, get the RINOs out of the way and it will be built quickly.

  12. skipsart says

    the best idea I’ve heard was to use all the confiscated drug cartel money to pay for the wall. I hear there is more than enough to do so. Curious why that is no longer discussed anymore.

    1. Ronald Starkey says

      Sometimes I wonder where that money is. Anybody know??

    build the wall and toss the Obama’s, and whoopee Goldberg over it. and don’t let them back in.

  14. barnjoer says

    Just cut every penny the US is giving to non-US countries and problem solved for paying for the wall!!

  15. ernldo says

    Give pathetic sanctuary cities NO federal money. Build that wall, and Americans arm yourselves. They can burn Frisco, Chicongo, Philth-adelphia, etc to the ground, I don’t care…but don’t even try that monkey swill in my neck of the woods, you will NOT enjoy your trip!

  16. Dennis Anderson says

    1# Let the army corp of engineers build a high speed train on top of the border. It can go from west to east when its paid for we have an inexpensive way to travel that can compete with flying. 2# Take money from mexicans sending money back across the mexican border through Western Union. 3# Take the drugs, and money that gets lost this will pay for the wall. 4#Short of death penalties clean out our jails and impose death penalties for people here illegally. 5# Dont wait 6 months to a year to get the job done.

  17. Peggie says

    What about the 9 billion that was given to Homeland Security for the purpose of building the wall??
    Has everyone forgotten that but me? Make them come up with the money they spent in other ways!
    I’m tired of the misuse of public funds paid for by US!! Why wasn’t this done when the money was allocated at the time???

  18. David Renaud says

    NOTE::::: This wall must be built……Mexico is a totally corrupt country. We get no benefits from Mexico, except maybe Corona extra beer……. I will switch brands to build the wall. Mexico should pay all of the wall costs since it is their corrupt government causing the problem. Build it NOW !!!!!!!

  19. Richard Bagenstose says

    look at the billions of dollars oboma used for the illegals, refugees, gave to iran, they weren’t in the budget , so where did he get the money from,it’s all a bunch of b/s , i garenty you if oboma wanted to build a wall , they would have built it,

  20. Scott Ezell says

    Make the liberals pay for part of it. Their naive, & gullable enough that they would do so with little or no questions asked.

  21. John J. Schmidt says

  22. Larry Brule says

    BRILLANT IDEAS. GO FOR IT!

  23. brucefandrews says

    It is never a good idea to rob “Peter to pay Paul”. When What you are proposing something you must look at all ramifications. We can Bring these communist cities into compliance while not turning them into a wast land like is done in Afghanistan. Again these Senators and congressmen have the minds of children. DO NOT LISTEN TO THEM! Go ahead and take away the Federal money but put it into an interest bearing account. Then when the city comes into compliance that portion of the money can be used to repair the infrastructure there. This would have no effect on building the wall. If we want to build the wall quickly and have Mexico pay there is only one good way. We must stop and search “ALL” people, cars, trucks (big and small), buses and trains. It does not matter how long it takes or hoe far the back up is. 24/7 each 8 hour shift can take over. Get all the illegal money, “ALL OF IT”! Put armed guards all along the border with orders to shoot to kill anyone that attempts to cross our border illegally. Where the Native Indians are. They will have to decide where they belong Mexico or America. Because the WALL will be built across their land. This is the United States of America not Their country. They fought a war and they lost. We have to start thinking U.S.A. FIRST!

  24. Eric Pearson says

    Luther is not as brilliant as you think. His proposal is against the law. Besides, Trump stated very clearly hundreds of times that “Mexico will pay” for his wall. Let him deliver on his promise. Or, is there some reason you think that might have been just a campaign promise that he knew he would never deliver? That’s what I thought all along. The very idea is stupid. Believing his empty promises is beyond stupid. He’ll probably be a private citizen before the end of the year anyway.

  25. Ron C says

    The republicans don’t give one twit what the voters want, we want a wall! The only people the republican’s & democrat’s listen to are the money bags…and the money bags want cheap labor and screw the uppity middle class….that is the truth of the story….!

  27. Henry says

    Good thinking , that just may work. It’s refreshing to hear from those republicans who are not always in the news . Thank you Sen Strange of the great state of Alabama. I at one time was stationed in Alabama , Loved the state.

  28. Grandma Dorothy says

    Yes, why are schemes necessary?
    Why have the Democrats and liberals divided themselves from the rest of America? Do they really think they can win like that? Why have they put sin, evil and our enemies first above the people that have paid their way all these many years? They can only pile so much of their garbage upon us, the true American people, before we stand against them and rebel like rabid dogs, then they won’t know what the he** hit them. We do have our limits and I expect the Lord to remove His hand from holding us back before much more time transpires!
    If the Republican Congress hadn’t broken it’s spine bending over backwards for at least seven out of those eight years for BHO, they would have stood up for the ones that voted them into office.
    Darn near every Republican in office need to be replaced by Independents or Conservatives and the ones that ‘claim’ to be Republican should be kicked out of office or have to prove themselves.
    As far as I can see they have only proven themselves to be 100% turncoats since 2010.
    We really are living in a day when it’s a fight between morals and decency – against evil and filth. A lot of little battles can be won by the other side and the devil but the war is/has already been won by the Lord Jesus Christ and His children that stand true to Him have everlasting life for their future.
    We either stand up for Him and His holiness and be counted worthy or we throw in the towel and follow the devil and his deception straight to everlasting hell…

  29. Ed says

    Regarding the wall, here’s a new take on the catch phrase from “Field of Dreams”,
    If you build it, they will NOT come.
    So, Republicans, grow some balls already and get it built.

  30. Deplorable Lanie says

    why are scheme necessary? We all should be writing to our representatives and telling them to get with it and grow some strength and quit being afraid of their own shadows. I have had it with the Dems interference. They do not control either House so why do they have so much power? Why are they running the show. Our reps need to get off their collective rear ends and get to work. We elected President Trump because we wanted the things he was offering and our reps are not working with him to get things done. Let’s get going and start getting things done. BUILD THAT WALL!

  31. Bebe says

    As a Texan, I don’t support a solid wall in 750 miles of border that cuts our TX ranchers off from the Rio Grande. It involves use of imminent domain and many other problematic options. We prefer the much less expensive VIRTUAL WALL for those 750 miles which is equally effective. It involves the combination of eyes in the sky, sensors that are so effective they will detect anything that moves or flies over and identify it; border agents in river patrol boats and a few other details as outlined by our Republican congressmen.
    If you are not in a border state, it is easy for you to give no thought to certain problems that could arise. As patriotic Americans we should look at the impact of the wall on the states involved. For Texas farms and ranches, being cut off from a precious water source and taking away a portion of their land is not palatable when there are better and cheaper options.
    Please do your homework before making decisions that can home fellow Americans and the cost of growing your food.

  32. Wayne Thorson says

    Trump said Mexico was going to pay for that wall. As the money comes in from Mexico put it in an escrow account. Then start building that wall when the money starts coming in and take the cost out of that escrow account. SIMPLE.

  33. Walter Flatt says

    AFTER THE WALL, CHARGE A TARIFF FOR GOING AND COMING FROM MEXICO.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A KOREAN WAR VET, AND A CHRISTIAN. I AM AN AMERICAN AND PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA AND CAN DE-CLASSIFY ANYTHING HE WANTS TO REGARDING GET THE JOB DONE. HE NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE BELOW.

    EVERY ONE AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME ESPECIALLY THE 5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED.

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA ALONG WITH HILLIARY AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC. (TAKE OVER WASHINGTON, COULD BE) WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS IF SO.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    1. AntiGOP says

      PURE BULLSHIT HATE….

  34. randolph.poole says

    Excellent idea! Redirect all federal monies from sanctuary cities to building the Wall.

  35. UB2DEGREES says

    1) Mandatory E-Verify for all Employers for Current Employers and Future Employers. Dont Allow Illegal aliens to work
    2) Stop IRS child credits for illegals using dead people SSN, fake SSN and EITC.
    3) Stop Workmens Compensation to false SSN ( see Chicago report Illegals rip off $7 Million)
    4) Stop Welfare , SSN payments, WIC , food stamps, medicaid to anyone without a valid SSN
    5) Revoke Birth Right Citizenship . If your parent isnt a citizen their kids can’t be citizens.
    6) SCOTUS stated a school could not ask for immigration status. Reopen that case that educating illegal aliens cost more than U.S students and is a burden to taxpayers and must be stoppped
    7) File Suit that giving Illegal Aliens Lawyers is not equal protection under the law because legal immigrants and citizens do not receive tax paid lawyers in civil cases so neither shall illegals
    8) Stop Sanctuary Cities by arresting Officials that are aiding and harboring illegal aliens against Federal immigration laws
    9) Make it a felony to give illegal aliens housing since this is aiding illegal aliens
    10) Defund Sanctuary Cities no federal grants nor projects or contracts to sanctuary cities.

    Public safety?
    Ever hear of fellow Americans Ray Kot, Sunnil Rattu and Martin Caballero?
    They were murdered at Trump Taj Mahal!
    Ever hear of police officers Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo?
    They were murdered by Jerad Miller and Amanda Miller.
    Their gang leader was Clyven Bundy.

  38. Gary Von Neida says

    thieves would simply steal the solar panels, just dam the colorado river/ create a lake, sell water to mexico.

  39. USN Vet 31yrs Svc says

    Close all federal offices within the sanctuary cities. Put fed employees on paid vacation until city meets compliance.
    The local citizens will change it thru the vote or they will live with the inconvenience.
    Close federal highways for commercial traffic.

  40. geneww1938 says

    Government money is not required to build the wall. A bond issue would be repaid from money saved.
    President Trump’s team is brilliant and building the Border Wall will be the smartest and greatest investment ever made by the USA government.!!! Forget repayment by Mexico and ignore a tax. Besides the carnage from drug pouring in, look at these costs.
    1] The 2011 Martin & Ruark “The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on US Taxpayers” “estimates the annual costs of illegal immigration at the federal, state and local level to be about $113 Billion; nearly $29 Billion at the federal level and $84 Billion at the state and local level”.
    Today’s and future costs are significantly greater.
    2] The $113 Billion did not include the cost of humans and illicit drugs trafficking, lost citizen’s wages, the society’s drug users and crime victims nor positive benefit factors as less crime from repeat deported criminals, safer streets and communities.
    3] The recent MIT and the anti-Trump Washington Post’s fact checker estimated the wall cost could be as high as $25 to $41 Billion for the entire border length.
    4] Reducing the annual costs by 10%, the worse-case Wall Cost would be repaid within 2 to 4 years !!!
    5] When did any government (or any financial adviser) make an investment with a 25% to 50% return within the first year followed by that annuity for life?
    6] It would be just a bonus if Mexico made any repayment
    7] Even I would invest in a limited 5% bond to be repaid in within 10 years from the above savings. That bond issue would generate too much money if made available.

  41. David Maher says

    Notice to all weak spineless Republicans not willing to build and fund the wall. The American people voted for President Trump to do this. Stop being so weak and just put it to a vote. It will pass. Built the damn wall now!

  42. Ellen says

    Great ideas. More can be done though so let’s get at it. God bless President Trump. There will be less ILLEGALS to harass me.

  43. Frederick King says

    This is one of the reasons that President Trump won. Lets enact the will f the regular citizens. Tax on remittances is a great idea. Many of the people sending these never paid any taxes, so this is long over due. The reallocation of federal dollars from sanctuary cities to the wall is a grand idea. These cities massively increase the cost to ICE by forcing them to chase down criminals that should have just been help for a few days in the local jails.

  44. Martbigee says

    Building the wall along the boarder with Mexico is brilliant! There are so many reasons for Mexicans to want to come here. We don’t offer the same access to free medicine as they have there, and here they’ll have to pay for their medicines, but still… We’ll help them get cars and houses and jobs, which none of them have experienced in Mexico. Then we’ll call them names, and hire but not pay them to do the jobs we don’t want to do. We’ll be able to do that because if they try to collect for their labor we’ll deport them back to Mexico. Tell me again…I’ve forgotten…why is it that they want to come here???

    1. Bella Gray says

      Obviously they do, but you miss the whole point. No one dislikes Mexicans. The compliant is about ILLEGAL ALIENS. Mexicans, or any other worker, can come here legally, so we know who they are and why they are coming here. The legal process helps them as much as it does us. It will likely increase their wages as it prevents under the table payments. American won’t have to look at them with scorn because Americans will know they are here illegally. They will be taxed in all ways just like the rest of us and will have to have the necessary insurances.

      1. Martbigee says

        First, it’s obvious that there are a lot of people in this Country who harbor strong biases against Mexicans…both legal and undocumented. I count you as one of them because you state that “American (sic) won’t have to look at them with scorn because Americans will know they’re here ‘illegally’ (sic)”. If you were not biased, you would assume that Mexicans are here legally unless you had evidence which proved the reverse. in other words, Bella, your first thought should be to respect everyone unless you’ve got good reasons not to. IT IS NOT ANYONE’S RESPONSIBILITY TO PROVE THEY’RE LEGAL TO YOU! Second, among First World nations, ours is one of the LEAST ACCEPTING. We also offer the least support, by most measures, both to legal immigrants and to our home grown citizens. Yes, I know the argument: “If I think other Countries are so much better than ours, why don’t I move?” First, I’m a disabled vet, and would like to remain in the County whose Constitution I fought for. I’m old, on Social Security, and not well enough to start over again. But for that, and the fact that my children and grandchildren live nearby, I would!

    Senator FUCK YOUR SELF, YOU ARE SO STUPID, AS THE IDIOT OF YOUR PRESIDENT. i HAVE PAID TAXES FOR MORE THAN 40 YEARS, AND YOUR MENTALLY RETARDED PRESIDENT IS AFRAID OF LETTING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SEE HIS TAX RETURN….WHAT A JOKE YOU’RE.

    1. Bella Gray says

      Oh please, seriously? First POTUS is under no obligation to show his tax return. America saw all it was legally necessary to see through his financial disclosure statement. Under the “fake news philosophy” running rampant thought the Communist Democrat Globalists party anything more would be used for nefarious purposes anyway. The one page of his tax returns that was stolen showed he paid more in taxes then Bernie, Clintons, and many of the other screamers from the left. The Communist Democrat Globalists wouldn’t know the truth if it bit them all on the backside. The entire party has proven itself to be a gaggle of liars, cheaters, and thieves.

      Let’s look at Bernie Sanders for example, shall we?
      Bernie Sanders, the Senator Who Hates Rich People, Made More Than $1 Million Last Year

      “Thanks in large part to his successful foray into authorship, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) made more than $1 million in 2016,” the Vermont outlet Seven Days reported. “That’s according to his latest U.S. Senate financial disclosure, which he filed Sunday after receiving a 20-day extension.”

      FBI Is DIGGING DEEP on Bernie Sander’s Family Fraud – GOP Presidential

      Federal investigators are conducting interviews in Florida regarding accusations Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ wife, Jane Sanders, defrauded a bank while serving as president of the now-defunct Burlington College.
      Allegations Jane Sanders falsified loan documents to expand the campus of Burlington College, which collapsed into bankruptcy in May 2016, swirled more than a year prior. The Daily Caller News Foundation first broke the news of the allegations against Mrs. Sanders in March 2015. The Department of Justice and the FBI will not confirm the existence of an investigation, but recent interviews conducted by officials from the FBI and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), independently confirmed to TheDCNF, suggest an investigation is ongoing.

    This sounds great, and add what Tiger said and we will be able to have the money fast.

  47. Alleged Comment says

    He’s a businessman NOT a politician. We don’t need any more useless professional politicians up there, we need experienced businessmen.

    PUT MORE OF THEM IN and start BANNING the communist DEMONCRAPS!

      The irony is the Democrats are communists and communism is already banned from our government. Yet, there they are.

  48. Mathew Molk says

    We DO NOT have a Republican controlled congress. We have a RINO/Democrat elite controlled congress but this we will change next year.

    1. Bella Gray says

      I wish it was that easy. The Communist Democrat Globalists are running their people for Republican seats. We just had it happen. I do a lot of research and only found out one of our two up for a HR seat was being heavily funded by the DNC. Luckily he didn’t win and I didn’t vote for him. However the one that did is almost as bad, as he uses illegal aliens for his businesses, arghhhh. This is a difficult climate to get anyone to run in. So frustrating. Money still talks. We need term (and pension) limits, so it will not be jobs taken for the wrong reasons.

  49. Dee says

    Stop the lifetime pensions for senetors and gold standard medical care for life, they can afford to pay for it, give that money to help build the wall

  50. Steve R. says

    On my next tax return I would be willing to give $5.00 towards building the wall. The registered voters pop. of the US is now over 200 million. Of those 42% voted Republican in 2016. Conservatively, if 84 million Republican voters each gave $5.00 toward building the “WALL” – that could be $420 million towards the “Wall.” The US/Mexican border is 1,989 miles from the Gulf of Mexico to San Diego, CA. Even if the “WALL” costs {1} million dollars per mile …….$420 million would pay for over 21% of the total “WALL!”

        When you quote from Snopes we know you are a gullible, liberal Demwit. Snopes has already been shown to be left wing liars. The husband and wife got a divorce and the husband has been screwing around with someone else.

    I say use the drug money the police confiscate during a drug bust. I have seen “Piles of money” that was found during a drug bust. Millions of dollars.

    1. Bella Gray says

      Yes, but once the drug money dries up, because the runners can’t get through, so does the wall’s upkeep money. We need a more permanent funding, like the solar panels. That has so many advantages, green resource and money from sold energy. Plus innovation as new technologies are discovered, and it puts American companies to work.

  53. Jean Langford M. says

    TAX THE MONEY THEY (ILLEGALS) SEND HOME AT 10% VIA THE TELEGRAPH OFFICE AND THAT IN IT’S SELF WILL PAY FOR THE WALL….IT WILL ALSO GET THEIR ASS OUT OF THE UNITED STATES…

  54. Sam MC Ilhone says

    Built housing along some parts of the border and sell them to pay for the wall or rent them to the border. Guards

    1. Bella Gray says

      That won’t work. The drug gangs use housing as covers for illegal activities and to hid their tunnels. ?

  55. RCQ157@yahoo.com says

    Build the wall take all the illegals and make them build the wall or imprison them for life at hard labor for the rest of their lives also no good time no privilege’s and plain hard labor breaking rocks with a shovel every day for fourteen hours each day.

  56. Box1Car says

    In the Art of War, it says “ALL werfare is based upon Deception” or control of enemy’s Perception>
    IF Trump proposed a DOUBLE Wall filled in between w/our plentiful Radioactive Waste so NO ONE crosses & lives to tell about it, U know the Drug Cartels will fall all over themselves in the rush to FUND a SINGLE Wall that they could cope with> On the other hand, take their Drug money & build it DOUBLE to leave the Radioactive Waste as a FINAL OPTION> Time to get serious about doin’ Somethin’ here

  57. Dennis Primm says

    put a tax on all money transfers from the United states to Mexico

  58. R Monty says

    ACTUALLY ALL THOSE ARE GREAT IDEAS!! USE THEM ALL!! JUST GET THE WALL BUILT AND SEE WHAT IT CAN DO!!! GO AROUND THE DEAD WEIGHT IN CONGRESS!!

  59. anthony j. manzo says

    Has anyone figured out how much money would be saved by stopping illegals. Welfare, crime etc. year after year. Could go a long way.

    1. keedon says

      The wall would cost $10 billion. Illegals cost us $99 billion a year.

  60. lerose55 says

    I agree 100% take the funds that Sanctuary Cities get & put it to the Border Wall or Fencing. Also take the drug money they get from drug traffickers smuggling into our Country. Stop Welfare for illegals. Cutback on Foreign-Aid to Counties that hate us. U burn our flag no aid. There are so many unnecessary programs that the money can be used for the wall & also pay off our Nations Debt.

    If you want to get paid for doing something stupid, just turn to the U.S. government. The U.S. government is paying researchers to play video games, it is paying researchers to study the effects of cocaine on Japanese quail and it has spent millions of dollars to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly. The amount of money that the government wastes is absolutely horrifying. Do you remember all of that political wrangling over the debt ceiling deal last year? Do you remember how our politicians told us that there were cutting spending as much as they possibly could? Well, it was all a giant lie. As you will see below, the U.S. government is spending money on some of the most stupid things imaginable. What makes all of this even worse is that we are going into enormous amounts of debt in order to pay for all of this. We are borrowing billions of dollars a day in order to pay for stupid stuff that no government on earth should ever be paying for. Trust me, you are going to find it hard to believe some of the stuff in this list. It is almost inconceivable what our politicians are doing with our tax dollars.

    The following are 30 incredibly stupid things that the federal government is spending money on….

    #1 The U.S. government is spending $750,000 on a new soccer field for detainees held at Guantanamo Bay.

    #2 The Obama administration plans to spend between 16 and 20 million dollars helping students from Indonesia get master’s degrees.

    #3 If you can believe it, the U.S. government has spent $175,587 “to determine if cocaine makes Japanese quail engage in sexually risky behavior”.

    #4 The U.S. government spent $200,000 on “a tattoo removal program” in Mission Hills, California.

    #5 The federal government has shelled out $3 million to researchers at the University of California at Irvine to fund their research on video games such as World of Warcraft.
    Wouldn’t we all love to have a “research job” like that?

    #6 The Department of Health and Human Services plans to spend $500 million on a program that will, among other things, seek to solve the problem of 5-year-old children that “can’t sit still” in a kindergarten classroom.

    #8 The federal government once spent 30 million dollars on a program that was designed to help Pakistani farmers produce more mangos.

    #9 The U.S. Department of Agriculture once gave researchers at the University of New Hampshire $700,000 to study methane gas emissions from dairy cows.

    #10 According to USA Today, 13 different government agencies “fund 209 different science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education programs — and 173 of those programs overlap with at least one other program.”

    #11 A total of $615,000 was given to the University of California at Santa Cruz to digitize photos, T-shirts and concert tickets belonging to the Grateful Dead.

    #12 China lends us more money than any other foreign nation, but that didn’t stop our government from spending 17.8 million dollars on social and environmental programs for China.

    #13 The U.S. government once spent 2.6 million dollars to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly.

    #14 One professor at Stanford University was given $239,100 to study how Americans use the Internet to find love.

    #15 The U.S. Postal Service spent $13,500 on a single dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.

    #16 The National Science Foundation once spent $216,000 to study whether or not politicians “gain or lose support by taking ambiguous positions”.

    #17 A total of $1.8 million was spent on a “museum of neon signs” in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    #18 The federal government spends 25 billion dollars a year maintaining federal buildings that are either unused or totally vacant.

    #19 U.S. farmers are given a total of $2 billion each year for not farming their land.

    #20 The U.S. government handed one Tennessee library $5,000 for the purpose of hosting a series of video game parties.

    #21 A few years ago the government spent $123,050 on a Mother’s Day Shrine in Grafton, West Virginia. It turns out that Grafton only has a population of a little more than 5,000 people.

    #22 One professor at Dartmouth University was given $137,530 to create a “recession-themed” video game entitled “Layoff”.

    #23 According to the Heritage Foundation, the U.S. military spent “$998,798 shipping two 19-cent washers from South Carolina to Texas and $293,451 sending an 89-cent washer from South Carolina to Florida”.

    #24 The U.S. Department of Agriculture once shelled out $30,000 to a group of farmers to develop a tourist-friendly database of farms that host guests for overnight “haycations”.

    #25 The National Institutes of Health paid researchers $400,000 to find out why gay men in Argentina engage in risky sexual behavior when they are drunk.

    #26 The National Institutes of Health also once spent $442,340 to study the behavior of male prostitutes in Vietnam.

    #27 The National Institutes of Health loves to spend our tax money on really bizarre things. The NIH once spent $800,000 in “stimulus funds” to study the impact of a “genital-washing program” on men in South Africa.

    #28 According to the Washington Post, 1,271 different government organizations work on government programs related to counterterrorism and homeland security.

    #29 The U.S. government spent $100,000 on a “Celebrity Chef Fruit Promotion Road Show in Indonesia”.

    #30 The feds once gave Alaska Airlines $500,000 “to paint a Chinook salmon” on the side of a Boeing 737.

    How in the world can our government be so foolish?

    Anyone that claims that there is not a lot of stuff that can be cut out of the federal budget is lying to you.

    1. “Greatest Show on Earth,” the federal government still felt the need to kick in $5 million to promote it.

    Build The Wall…….

    i would go for the forfiture of sancturary city funds , use them for the construction of the wall

  66. Robert Russell says

    Why not put a tax on gasoline say 5 cent tax but only until the wall is paid for then it is no more. Chances it would pay for the wall in 2 or 3 years or faster. Look what California did raised gasoline taxes 20 cents to pay illegals for housing & food & welfare.

    The solar panels will be destroyed or just cost too much to maintain—in the short it will make money for the suppliers;but, eventually become a loser. Cities have had solar panels torn from their mounts and sold for cash to junk yards———wake up, the only thing that makes sense is to build a dam for the Colorado River and have Mexico pay for WATER. Since They have not helped to seal Our border They are not being very friendly–THUS WE BUILD A DAM—-We will have a lake; They will have a bill to pay. SIMPLE.

    All Illegal Aliens convicted of felonious charges need to be imprisoned and their labor used to build the wall. After the wall has been built, implant microchips into their body (into the groin). If they are caught in the US again, sterilization and 20 years hard labor and deportation. No exceptions.

  72. James Stevens says

    Great ideas Tiger. With you all the way. To get this done we need to drain the swamp and eliminate all the sandbagging politicians, impose term limits, remove all perks and retirement benefits, make them live in our world.

    Start fining companies that hire illegals and use that money. E-verify must be enforced. Where I live a beautiful young girl was raped and murdered by an illegal alien criminal. He lived in the same apartment complex in one of two apartments rented by a drywall company to house their cheap labor, five illegal scums to each apartment. The family of this girl must sue that drywall company.

    1. keedon says

      Kat in the last ten years 80,000 illegals have perpetrated rape, robbery and murder on US citizens.

      1. Kat says

        And President Trump knows it, that’s why he wants to deport their criminal asses. He has a committee now to compensate victims and their families for crimes committed by the illegal scum. God Bless him.

        Another incident where I live, one of them cut the screen and climbed through the window to rape a 97-year-old lady. Beat her senseless too. She died four months after the attack. Jury found him guilty, waiting for his sentencing on July 14th. Another worthless maggot we will have to feed for the rest of his worthless life.

  76. DeanBrunel says

    I cannot understand the hatred and intolerance that is on this site. People do not understand the true meaning of the Muslim faith. If they did, there would be little hatred and prejudice. I guess this proves that the right wing politicians in America have touched the prejudices that lurk in the souls of Americans. And yet the American right wing grinds on and on with no end in sight except irrationally striking out, neighbor against neighbor, religion against religion, ideas against ideas and idiocy against idiocy. You all should be ashamed. You will cause this country to face the whirlwind, by building up so much hate and divisiveness and striking out against the good, the true and the beautiful. Cowards all of you.
