Biden Taking 3:10 to Yuma, Finishing Trumps Border Wall on the Sly in Arizona

Anyone else remember the Trump administration? Record setting economy, world peace, secure borders, energy independence; yea, a very good time.

Well, Brandon did his best (worst) to dismantle all of President Trumps good work as quickly as he could, and boy howdy did he do a bang-up job!

Remember the first days of sleepy Joe’s tenure? Cancelling the Keystone pipeline, cancelling new drilling leases in Anwar, abandoning border wall construction and putting thousands out of work, even though the materials were already at location.

Yep, Joe Biden has done a bang-up job! Well, here we are about two years into what seems like an eternal presidency, and everything has gone off the electric powered rails.

Record high gas prices, stagflation, supply chain shortages, and excuses have become the hallmark of the Biden presidency. More good times!

Don’t look now, but Brandon is trying to course correct some of his disastrous earlier course changes, on the sly!

With the absolute flood of illegals coming over our southern border, Joe has decided to finally do what he never should’ve undone. Recently Biden did some more border wall construction on the sly in California. Now he has moved on to Yuma, Arizona. Let’s check with Outkick for the details:

The Biden administration announced that Friday that they would be filling in several gaps in the border wall near Yuma, Arizona that started construction under the Trump administration.

Soon after taking office in 2021, Biden halted all new building on the wall, contributing to record illegal border crossings in recent months.

Now, four major holes in the wall will be completed, a shocking shift after repeated denials by Biden that the wall would be beneficial.

Let’s be honest here folks. Biden likely never thought halting construction was a good idea. Anyone with functioning brain cells know this. I assume he has at least 10.

No, in fact Biden was playing lackey for the far left of his party that lusts for wide open borders. You almost can’t blame him (I still do), as the far left was what helped get him elected in the most fair and secure election ever! (sarcasm).

However now Biden, who I still believe holds out hope for a second term, sees the unmitigated disaster the border is, and he wants to finish some of 45’s good ideas. Too little, too late Joe!

It’s even more hypocritical given that in a 2019 op-ed, Joe Biden decried then President Trump as invoking “racist invective to describe anyone south of the Rio Grande.”

Biden also claimed that the wall wouldn’t even be effective, suggesting in the op-ed that it wouldn’t stop human trafficking, the drug trade or the flow of illegal immigration:

“It won’t stop the flow of illegal narcotics or human trafficking, both of which come primarily through legal ports of entry,” he continued. “Nor will it stop asylum seekers fleeing the most desperate conditions imaginable, and who have the right to have their cases heard. Nor will it stem the numbers of undocumented, most of whom over-stay legal visas.”

Biden was right in saying it wouldn’t COMPLETELY stop the human trafficking and drug flow. Likely nothing will be effective at eliminating all of that.

However, Trumps border wall would have helped stem and slow the influx of illegals, illegal drugs, and human trafficking. Biden is now realizing that is fact, or rather walking back some bad policy to try to save face on the border. Either way, he clearly realizes he messed up on this one.

Now, due to his administration’s lax enforcement of existing laws, refusal to complete the wall, and tacit encouragement of illegal immigration, Biden’s forced to backtrack.

It’s just the latest setback for one of the most unpopular presidents in U.S. history, who has failed to address every crisis he’s faced.

People can incorrectly label Donald Trump a racist, and decry his America first immigration policy, however those are the same people now complaining about illegals filling shelters and overburdening some cities resources. You can’t have it both ways.

Truth is, President Trump had the immigration issue in check. Of course, nothing is going to ever stop ALL illegal crossings and drug trade 100 percent, but at least his policies didn’t lead to the biggest humanitarian crisis our country has faced in our lifetime.

That, friends is Joe Biden’s legacy, and cross to bear. He’s finally trying, but sadly probably too late.

Trump Responds to Secret Service Director’s Resignation

Trump Responds to Secret Service Director's Resignation

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – President Donald Trump responded to Kimberly Cheatle’s statement on Tuesday that she was leaving her role as director of the Secret Service due to criticism of the way her organization handled the recent attempt on the previous president’s life.

Trump said, “She never gave me proper protection, so I ended up having to take a bullet for democracy,” in an afternoon interview with Fox News Digital.

He said that his campaign made multiple requests for more protection, which the agency either flatly denied or disregarded.

“Many requests were made by on-site Secret Service for more people, always with a turn down or no response,” Trump told the news outlet. “I have the biggest crowds in history, and they should be treated accordingly.”

He added, “Big improvements have been made over the last week,” Fox News Digital reported.

Cheatle announced her resignation in writing to the Secret Service on Tuesday morning, despite her earlier refusal to do so.

“To the Men and Women of the U.S. Secret Service, The Secret Service’s solemn mission is to protect our nation’s leaders and financial infrastructure,” Cheatle wrote. “On July 13th, we fell short on that mission.”

She was under pressure to step down during Monday’s House Oversight Committee hearing, as she acknowledged that the agency’s reaction to the attempted assassination was a “failure.” This pressure came from all sides of the aisle.

According to a recent press release, United States Representative Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) submitted a motion that evening that would have forced a vote in the House to impeach Cheatle following her initial refusal to step down on Monday.

In response to Mace’s question during the hearing on whether the agency’s response was “a colossal failure,” the director said, “Yes.” Mace attacked the Secret Service for its lack of openness, pointing out that Cheatle’s testimony had to be subpoenaed by legislators.

Before the hearing, she accused the director of leaking her opening statement to several media sites.

When asked how often the agency had turned down the Trump campaign’s demands for more security throughout her testimony, Cheatle remained silent.

During the committee’s opening remarks, she acknowledged that the Secret Service’s reaction to the attempted assassination was “the most significant operational failure of the agency in decades.”

Nevertheless, she insisted that she was “the best person” to run the organization then.

President Joe Biden issued a statement acknowledging Cheatle’s decision and expressing gratitude for her service on Tuesday afternoon, following her resignation in response to the growing calls for her resignation.

“As a leader, it takes honor, courage, and incredible integrity to take full responsibility for an organization tasked with one of the most challenging jobs in public service,” the statement read. “The independent review to get to the bottom of what happened on July 13th continues, and I look forward to assessing its conclusions. We all know what happened that day can never happen again.”

During her hearing before the committee on Monday, Cheatle stated that the agency’s ongoing initial internal assessment would take around sixty days.

Do you believe there should be a criminal investigation into the Secret Service Director’s lack of security for President Trump?

Harris Campaign Begins Vetting Process for Top VP Contenders

Harris Campaign Begins Vetting Process for Top VP Contenders

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – The competition to become Vice President Kamala Harris’s running partner is intensifying. It has been reported that her campaign has sent screening papers to several prominent Democrats.

Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ) and Governor Josh Shapiro (D-PA), seen as strong candidates from crucial battleground states, are leading the pack.

Harris’s campaign carefully evaluates potential vice presidential candidates as she seeks the Democratic presidential nomination.

Alongside Kelly and Shapiro, governors Roy Cooper (D-NC), Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI), Tim Walz (D-MN), and J.B. Pritzker (D-IL) have also been given vetting paperwork. However, Pritzker has denied receiving such materials.

One notable omission from the list is Governor Andy Beshear (D-KY), who many see as a leading contender.

Beshear stated that despite vigorous campaigning for the position, he had not received any correspondence from the Harris campaign concerning the vice-presidential screening procedure.

The selection process is underway as Harris’s team looks to enhance its ticket with a running mate who will appeal to a wide range of voters and strengthen support in key states.

Kelly and Shapiro are perceived as centrist leaders who, due to their considerable political backgrounds, have the potential to draw in moderate voters.

Kelly, the current senator from Arizona and a former astronaut, has a proven track record in Arizona.

At the same time, Shapiro’s leadership in Pennsylvania is distinguished by his emphasis on progressive ideals and his ability to win elections in a swing state.

The main goal of her campaign plan seems to be selecting a running mate who can enhance Harris’s program and increase the Democratic ticket’s appeal to a wide range of voters in essential areas and demographics.

The fact that there are several governors indicates that candidates with executive expertise and a track record of successful leadership are preferred.

The screening process is anticipated to be rigorous, involving a detailed review of the candidates’ public personas and political positions and significant background investigations.

The campaign’s final choice will probably try to strike a compromise between political tactics and the requirement for a solid and cooperative alliance in the White House.

As the Democratic National Convention draws near, there is growing conjecture and expectation over Harris’s final choice for her ticket partner.

The chosen vice-presidential candidate will be crucial to the party’s unity and mobilization of the electorate before the November election.

Does it matter who Harris selects as her VP as she goes against the Trump/Vance ticket?

BREAKING: JOE BIDEN DROPS OUT!

BREAKING: JOE BIDEN DROPS OUT!

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Joe Biden has decided not to run for reelection.

On Sunday afternoon, Biden declared his plan and promised to provide further details shortly.

“It has been the greatest honor of my life to serve as your President,” Biden’s statement read. “And while it has been my intention to seek reelection, I believe it is in the best interest of my party and the country for me to stand down and to focus solely on fulfilling my duties as President for the remainder of my term.”

Although Vice President Kamala Harris was expressly endorsed as his successor, he congratulated her in his statement for “being an extraordinary partner in all this work.”

But Biden later gave “my full support and endorsement for Kamala to be the nominee of our party this year” in a statement uploaded on X.

Then, in a powerful message to Democrats, Biden urged them to unite and defeat Trump, emphasizing the importance of collective action in the upcoming election.

Do you believe VP Kamala Harris will be the 2024 Democratic presidential nominee?
