Pentagon Delivers This Welcome News

The Pentagon is finally responding to President Donald Trump’s declared national emergency by announcing it would reallocate $1 billion for funding of a wall along the U.S./Mexico border.

The funding will give “the Department of Defense the authority to construct roads and fences and to install lighting to block drug-smuggling corridors across international boundaries of the United States in support of counter-narcotic activities of Federal law enforcement agencies,” according to a notification from the Pentagon to Congress.

The amount is estimated to cover the cost of 57 miles of “18-foot-high pedestrian fencing.”

While Congress has already approved these funds for the Pentagon to use, Democrats are still crying foul.

Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan received a letter from the disgruntled Dems reading, “The $1 billion reprogramming that the Department is implementing without congressional approval constitutes dollar-for-dollar theft from other readiness needs of our Armed Forces.”

These Democrats claim “substantial shortfalls” in the budgets of the Air Force, Marine Corps, and Navy,  “currently total $5 billion.” Claiming that the money should go towards these branches instead of the wall.

      We Did not! The only thing that took place during Democrap control was exc. orders that hurt American Business’s, Legal to kill more babies, allowed terrorist to come into our country, allowed more illegal immigrants to come in and over burden our help systems, made it legal for gays to destroy our moralities, and made trade deals that hurt American Workers. In simple terms they did every thing they could to destroy the U.S. OF A. from with in, and they are still doing it and will not stop, until we stop them, by refusing them any elected position in any government system from smallest town all the way to the Federal Government. The left wing nut socialist Democraps have declared war on the people of the U.S. Of A., and will not stop until they turn our country into a dictator ship or we stop them.

      We haven’t. The Democrats have done nothing to represent “We The People”, as a whole and fight the entire U.S. legal citizens on every turn of the path. They have spent more time and money trying to discredit President Trump with their insane fixation to destroy President Trump! I would like to have my portion of tax money that I paid refunded to me for the last 4 decades, in which the House and Senate receive their paychecks, perks, benefits, and “slush funds. How about you?

    Then I guess you Dems should have allocated the money he asked for for the wall. You have no say now because it is an emergency at the southern border and the funding is for the safety of American citizens who should come first when it comes to safety. The only reason you refused to allocate the funds for the wall was because you hate Trump, not because you thought we shouldn’t have it for the wall. We all know the Dems are not about taking care of us Americans it’s about your power, your greediness, and your pockets. So now just sit back and watch the power of the American people who by the way are your bosses.

      I definitely think that the wall needs to be built to keep out the illegals, but in the mean time I feel that our Soldiers and Border Guards should be aloud to shoot to kill. That means all of the illegals, men, women, and children. All they will do is use our resources for medical treatment and disability acts including welfare. All illegals and Muslim people need to be kicked out of our Nation. This is supposed to be The United States of America, not The United States of Foreigners. Get all of them out so that we just have a Christian race of peoples here.

    The wall is part of our civil defense mechanism… just as are the military personnel sent to protect the fence. So where is your argument that the fence is NOT part of our national defense system??? You are dividing things to your own bias… not the national needs… And just think what a wind-fall the results will be when the $$$$ are diverted from the defense and illegals to do more productive work for the
    USofA legal citizens…. Use what GOD gave you between your ears… or did he short change you in the blessed event (or mistake) of your birth?

If the wall is built we will make up in a couple of yrs. what it costs us in lives and dollars wasted on drugs and related crimes as well as the millions spent on health and housing and medical for all the illegals who come across everyday. If they use the legal process they are welcome . but NO MORE HANDOUTS AT THE TAXPAYERS EXPENSE. Rob423

    We need that WALL The Drug money the U.S. Conficated from the Drug Cartels, could and shoud be used to Build the WALL this would stop the need-less death os illegal escaping Mexico from crimes and dying in the Hot Desert or Freezing in the cold desert nights. The WALL will all so stope the Criminals from returning to the United States many times and killing robbing American Citizens’ The WALL would also stop the illegal Drugs from crossing the Southern Borders. I sent money for a safe Border, I have been on the Southern Border and it is a scary place. What happened to my money this was over 10 years ago and still NO Safe Borders.

    The Democrats opposition to the wall goes beyond hatred for trump, although that’s part of it. They also see the hoards of illegal aliens who are invading our boarders by the tens of thousands at a time, including many gang members and hardened criminals, as future Democratic voters which would convert America into a one party (Democrat) system, capable of voting themselves plunder of the public coffers. Our Constitution defines treason as providing aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war. With our boarders being under attack by armies of thousands of invaders every month, does anyone not recognize this as an undeclared war against US? Would that not qualify the Democrats in Congress as being guilty of Treason?

    I would give the money to the Wall, because the over all cost for the United State taxpayer would be less in the long run, in not paying welfare benefits, especial to people who don’t need to be here in the first place…. It’s not that I don’t care for these people, but they are not the one’s who paid into a system…. I think the people who paid the money should be the one to decide, on how this money is spent….. The one’s aloud into USA, should be willing to make the USA better, in being apart of the system, not just reaping benefits….

    It says a lot about a country that is constantly arguing. When you know the arguing is not about the issue at hand but rather the person in general, it is time to declare obstruction of justice. Trump has been opposed before he even ran for president by a minority who refuse to conceed to losing an election
    . They happen to own the news media. They want to use the military for their own private worldwide business. The WTO is not concerned about your future. Nor is the Clinton Foundation. We cannot and should not even attempt to be the policeman of the world. The best thing we can do is stop buying things that are not made in the USA. Phones ,tv’s, cars, and computers are just a few that come to mind. GE and other large companies should be treated no different than a foreign buisiness.

    This is such a positive step toward protecting our borders and US citizens.
    We should hire more border patrol agents and update their equipment – so
    we do not have to release so many illegals that will never show up again once
    released. Stop the insanity. Stop the attack on US soverignity! Stop the crimes
    by illegals. Stop the illegal drug flow!
    Keep America safe. The disgraceful democrats should do the jobs they were elected to do
    instead of undermining Pres Trump every day!

      I agree and we have to get every true American involved and committed to the 2020 elections . Just think . If we are feeling the wrath of this radical group that has captured the Democratic party , You can expect much worse if they win the white House in 2020 . These people are ego maniacs . I sure hope all of the millennial group understands that once the radicals use them to gain power and give them $20,000 or some kind of blood money , they will become the slaves of this group. Whatever they think they may gain by voting for them will come no where near what it will cost them and us in individual freedoms . No more choices or even debate or discussion for fear of fines and jail time, if you don’t follow orders . Also remember ,all who might be considering voting for the democrats . Be ready to give up a nice chunk of change in your tax rate . The figure under the Green deal has already suggested to be 70% of your take home pay . Whats worse ,is that these taxes will not apply to Congress who are all taking home about 190,000 to 200,000. If I was even considering voting for the Dem radicals ,I would first have them give a guarantee that they would be throwing their pay stubs in the pot before I do and we all end up receiving the same amt of pay ,which is the true Socialist way . Everyone shares what everyone has. Unfortunately they have the power once they are voted in and we are all in a position of follow orders of suffer. Ron 423

They need a lesson in our laws too. Building a wall to protect us from the influx of drugs, criminals, sex trafficking, etc is part of our national defense and the Pentagon can allocate their money for that purpose if they choose to! Besides, it is OUR tax dollars and OUR WALL. It is way past time to get it built!!!!!

    Most Mexicans don’t even like Americans. I know 200 drug dealers and 192 are Mexicans. 100 of which came in illegally across the border. We better build this wall call what you want. If not your grandkids and I mean everyone’s grandkids are going to be addicts. The only people wanting Mexicans here are the ugly , lazy white girls who want a free meal willing to trade their country for it. I know Trump is abbrasive in his messages but unfortunately he’s right. I mean our government is corrupted and always will be. But be careful because the rules and outcome have already been defined it’s call the Bible. You what to know what’s going to happen just read the book!
