Albanian Insurgents in Macedonia Are a Big National Emergency – But Not Our Own Open Border
Democrats have declared President Trump’s emergency order to build the wall on the southern border to be illegal. Their confusion probably stems from the fact that no previous president has declared an ongoing “National Emergency” that actually benefits Americans.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promised President Trump that if he would just sign the junk spending bill that he negotiated with Nancy Pelosi, McConnell would have the president’s back when it came to the emergency order.
And once President Trump flew to Vietnam to try to negotiate a historic peace deal with North Korea, McConnell has stabbed him in the back.
As soon as Trump was out of town to bring about world peace, a reporter asked McConnell if he believes Trump’s emergency order is legal. After promising to support the president last month, McConnell now says he has not “reached a total conclusion.”
Way to show that world-famous spine of yours, McConnell!
We lost 70,000 Americans to drug overdoses from narcotics that came across our southern border last year. That’s more casualties than we lost in the whole Vietnam War.
The State Department estimates that 30,000 women and children are trafficked across the southern border each year as slaves to be sold into the pornography and prostitution industries. NC-FIRE statistics show that between 10,000 and 12,000 underage children in America are sexually assaulted by illegal aliens every single year.
And those figures don’t include the thousands of Americans killed by drunk-driving illegal aliens, or robbed, murdered or otherwise victimized by the invaders.
If that’s not a national emergency, what is?
Well, we can check the historical record easily to see what past presidents have declared as National Emergencies. There are still 31 National Emergencies in effect today, and keep in mind, all of these are renewed by Congress every year. Because they are really, truly, pressing “national emergencies.”
Jimmy Carter’s 1979 National Emergency on the Iran hostage crisis is still in effect. Sure, the hostages were released 38 years ago, but it’s still a big enough emergency that Congress renews it every single year.
Bill Clinton’s 1997 National Emergency blocking government property in the Sudan is still in effect. Never mind that your own neighborhood is starting to look like a Mexican shantytown. Blocking government property in Sudan is a big National Emergency.
We have a 2001 National Emergency in effect that imposes sanctions on anyone who aids Albanian insurgents in the tiny country of Macedonia.
A drunk-driving Obama “Dreamer” ran over and killed two little girls in Oregon who were playing in a pile of leaves in their front yard. But don’t worry.
Mitch McConnell has voted every year since 2001 to protect you from Albanian insurgents in Macedonia. That’s the important “national emergency” in Mitch’s eyes.
We have a National Emergency in effect due to the 2006 election violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We have a National Emergency in effect because of Somali pirates – the ones in Somalia, not the ones who terrorize shoppers at the Mall of America in Minnesota.
We have a National Emergency in effect because of the Yakuza in Japan. You Americans and your complaints that 10 million illegal alien voters swung the popular vote to Hillary Clinton in 2016 is not a “national emergency.”
The Yakuza – the Japanese mafia clans – that is the real emergency that you need to be protected from. You can rest assured that your onion volcano and Hibachi steak at Benihana are on the up and up.
America has official National Emergencies in effect because of ongoing problems in Yemen, Ukraine, the Central African Republic, Lebanon, Belarus and Zimbabwe.
We’ve had a National Emergency in effect to freeze the assets of Muammar Gaddafi since 2011. Yes, Congress has voted seven years in a row to keep the assets of a dead guy frozen, because that is a National Emergency.
Almost every other country in the world gets to have a “National Emergency” in its honor – but once again, the American people aren’t important enough to Congress to merit our own emergency.
We have 10-year-old children raising thousands of dollars with their lemonade stands to help pay for the wall. What else is it going to take to get Congress to take us seriously? We want our country back and that process starts with the wall!
