Law enforcement can have the Pentagon build a border wall without Congress or a national emergency

Law enforcement can have the Pentagon build a border wall without Congress or a national emergency

For the last two weeks, we’ve been trying to draw attention to 10 U.S.C. § 284, a provision in the United States Code that allows law enforcement at any level to request support from the Secretary of Defense to build a wall along the border where drug smuggling or transnational organized crime are a problem.

When it comes to our southern border, just about anywhere without a wall is ripe for criminal activity.

This is our fifth attempt to draw attention to this solution. Here are the previous four:

I even made a video about it in hopes more conservatives in DC would take a look at this:

Thankfully, a small handful of Republicans, including House Freedom Caucus Chair Mark Meadows, has tried to draw more public support for this solution.

Here’s the short explanation of how this will work, in case you don’t want to watch the video or read the previous four articles:

  • Law enforcement at nearly any level can request support from the Secretary of Defense to stop drugs and crime crossing the border
  • Title 10, subtitle A, part 1, chapter 15, Section 284, Subsection B, line 7 of the United States Code grants the Secretary of Defense the power for the “Construction of roads and fences and installation of lighting to block drug smuggling corridors across international boundaries of the United States.”
  • The President would not have to invoke the NEA to declare a national emergency
  • Without the use of the NEA, Congress has no recourse to stop it

That doesn’t mean there wouldn’t be legal challenges, but these wouldn’t be anywhere near the immense degree of red tape that will halt wall construction for years. In fact, it’s very likely that an emergency court order to stop the Defense Department from acting on the wall would be shot down in weeks, not months or years. Moreover, given the broad powers under military discretion, it’s more likely they would be able to begin construction immediately even while legal challenges are ongoing.

Some other news outlets are finally starting to catch wind of this. We need to get the word out to as many people as possible. Send this to politicians, journalists, and people within your circle. This is the fastest path to starting the wall. Let’s get moving.

Jussie Smollett reveals the left’s greatest weakness

Jussie Smollett reveals the lefts greatest weakness

Conservatives may have a hard time isolating one thing that can be considered the greatest weakness of the left. Some would say they suffer from intellectual weakness, but we’ve seen too many truly intelligent leftists over the years. Others would say it’s their surface-level morality. This may be true, as most leftists base their morals on a surface level examination rather than digging deeper into issues. This is why many of them think the welfare state must grow instead of shrink.

To me, their biggest weakness is that they’re so gullible. They fall for every perceived injustice regardless of how insane the accusation. If MAGA-folks can be blamed for something, the left tends to believe it. After all, it’s easier for them to believe in the evil of the right than to believe card-carrying progressives like Nathan Phillips, Brenda Snipes, or Jussie Smollett are hiding the truth.

This site is 100% crowdfunded by readers like YOU. Please consider donating and keeping the right side of news going strong.

After last month’s report that Empire actor Jussie Smollett was assaulted by two white men who beat him, splashed bleach on him, tied a noose around his neck, and told him “this is MAGA country,” the rebukes from the left against the “MAGA bigots” was swift and harsh. While many on the right were skeptical that two men in masks were out late at night in -20 degree temperatures seeking out a black, gay celebrity to attack, there seemed to be zero skepticism from some of the left’s most outspoken folks.

As fate would have it, this appears to be a hoax crime designed to draw sympathy for the actor:

Jussie Smollett Reportedly Paid Brothers to Stage ‘Attack’

https://www.tmz.com/2019/02/16/jussie-smollett-attack-brothers-rope-suspect-staged/Jussie Smollett has turned from a presumed victim to suspect in the criminal investigation into the alleged racist, homophobic attack, and sources say there is mounting evidence the 2 brothers who were arrested and subsequently released were acting at Jussie’s behest and reportedly paid.

Our sources say the brothers — both of whom worked on the “Empire” set — “completely cooperated” with Chicago cops during their interrogation over the last few days.

One law enforcement source tells TMZ at least one of the brothers turned over his phone and there is a call between him and Jussie in the vicinity of the “attack,” but before it happened.

The left’s desire to believe anything that paints Trump supporters in a negative light blinds them to obvious falsehoods. Jussie Smollett’s story was difficult for rational people to believe, but hatred for MAGA makes otherwise rational people unhinged and gullible.

As Jussie Smollett story evolves, let’s not give it the Covington Catholic School treatment

As Jussie Smollett story evolves lets not give it the Covington Catholic School treatment

When a juicy story hits social media, the instant reaction is to run with it and all the implications. That’s the nature of our on-demand, always-on, real-time media world. The only thing faster than hot takes from the first hint of a story are the assumptions made by both sides regardless of the details.

Such is the case with Jussie Smollett, the actor who was allegedly attacked by MAGA-loving bigots. Smollett, a gay man of color, was allegedly targeted on the streets of Chicago, but now reports are coming in that it may have been an elaborate hoax designed to help him save his job on the cast of Empire.

But so far, police have only confirmed that Smollett is still being treated as a victim. Yes, there were two persons of interest questioned by police. Yes, Smollett skipped a voluntary interview with police this morning. Yes, the story was strange from the start and this new narrative seems to match much better regardless of which side of the political or cultural aisle you’re on.

And yet, nothing has been confirmed.

It’s incumbent on us, whether journalists or simply social media users, to wait for the facts before jumping to conclusions. It works in both directions.

Was it all a hoax? Possibly. Some who are looking at he evidence today and the report released by local Chicago news may come to the conclusion that a hoax was likely. But let’s not assume until the truth is revealed by officials.

Democrats push background check bill in the House

Democrats push background check bill in the House

As social media buzzes about the one-year anniversary of the Parkland shooting, Democrats hope to put their latest iteration of gun control on the floor and onto the Senate. Called a “bipartisan” attempt to initiate more background checks on firearm purchases and sales, many conservatives on Capitol Hill are speaking out against it.

The House Judiciary Committee advanced the bill yesterday.

My Take

Gun control bills, of which this is merely the first to be pushed by the current iteration of Democrats, usually have two things in common. First, they don’t address the problem they’re allegedly trying to solve; neither the Parkland shooting nor any mass shooting in the 21st century would have been prevented had this bill been in place. Second, they are a stepping stone through which leftists will attempt to initiate more draconian laws that eat away at our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.

As with the abortion issue, the gun control issue is one in which “common sense” is used to push harsher laws down the line.

It should be strange to cognizant Americans that Democrats continue to push laws that make it easier to kill preborn babies while making it harder for innocent people to defend themselves with firearms. Are you seeing a trend in their mentality?
