Mitch McConnel Refutes President Trump: Closing Border Would Have Catastrophic Impact on Country

 

What has become abundantly clear, the GOP and Congress  will do nothing to help Trump these last two years. McConnell in particular has set his mind that no attempt to work on Obamacare will happen. Worse, nothing will be done to secure our border. While I am at it, Mexico can take their avocados and shove them. Let them rot in Mexico. By the way, are we still fixing Mexican trucks so they can meet our EPA emissions standards and roam around with the avocados? Just asking.

Did the Dems ever do something like this to Obama? One thing one has to say for Pelosi and her tribe, they remained loyal to Obama. No caterwauling from them. These Republicans in Congress are despicable.

In March 100,000 illegal immigrants invaded the southern border. Immigration services are overwhelmed.

These are the Senate Republicans who voted against President Trump’s border emergency declaration:

  • Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.
  • Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah
  • Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine
  • Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska
  • Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.
  • Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah
  • Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan.
  • Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa.
  • Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio
  • Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss.
  • Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.
  • Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo.

 

 

You can take those avocados and shove them. Mexico too.

Mexican Avocado Prices Explode By Most In A Decade After Trump Border Threat

 

More fake news and who cares.

“You couldn’t pick a worse time of year because Mexico supplies virtually 100% of the avocados in the U.S. right now,” Barnard told Reuters.

“California is just starting and they have a very small crop, but they’re not relevant right now and won’t be for another month or so.”

However, while it’s all very exciting, the surge has pushed avocado prices up to the same level they were at in 2017 at this time of year…

And while I am on a tear, are we still fixing Mexican Trucks so they can roam America with those avocados?

Mexico Trucks rolling across America – U.S. pays for upgrades

In the latest effort to accommodate its cherished trade partner in the south, the U.S. government is paying to upgrade outdated Mexican trucks that hemorrhage illegal amounts of exhaust on their trips north to deliver merchandise.

Since the Mexican truckers have no intention of fixing the problem, Uncle Sam has stepped in to save the environment. U.S. taxpayers have picked up the cost to replace old mufflers on dozens of trucks and many more are scheduled to be upgraded by the middle of this year. The unbelievable story was reported this week by an Arizona newspaper that says replacing the old mufflers with new catalytic converters will reduce harmful diesel emissions by up to 30%.

From earlier posting from Bunkerville: Mexican Truckers say they cannot meet U.S. EPA Standards

Mexican government says it will ease its trade sanctions against U.S. imports only after its trucks are allowed to cross the border.

Sanctions? Juan really…

Juan Carlos Munoz, president of Mexico’s National Chamber of Motor Transport of Freight, said Mexican trucks cannot meet U.S. environmental emissions standards, which effectively shuts them out of the market.

Obama re: Iraq- tells leadership: ‘I don’t need your stinking approval’

Just a photo-op at the WH for our Commander in thief. I wonder if Boehner questioned Obama on his perspective. This from no less than CNN. The truth of the matter, “Clueless” is remaining clueless. So much for equal branches of government. Congress gets the finger once again.

Washington (CNN) — I’ll let you know what’s going on, but I don’t need new congressional authority to act, President Barack Obama told congressional leaders Wednesday about his upcoming decision on possible military intervention in Iraq.
The White House meeting sounded more like a listening session for the top Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate about options for helping Iraq’s embattled Shiite government halt the lightning advance of Sunni Islamist fighters toward Baghdad that Obama is considering.

Obama “did not give us an array of actions he was planning to take,” Pelosi said. “He just talked about his perspective on what was happening there.”
A few hours earlier, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey said they were working out details on possible U.S. steps that could include airstrikes on Sunni militants advancing through northern Iraq.
