Since Donald Trump&rsquo;s election, we&rsquo;ve seen liberals donning vagina hats while their snowflakes melted like well, snowflakes. We&rsquo;ve watched liberals screaming at the sky, wearing safety pins and running to safe spaces like Chicken Little, all because they can&rsquo;t handle President Trump and his tweets. But now with Nancy Pelosi in power, the Democrats are freaking out over a miniscule amount of the federal budget for wall funding &mdash; something all Democrats supported just a few short years ago under Barack Obama.</p>\n<p> THE DEMOCRATS don&rsquo;t have a wall problem; they have a Trump problem. Well actually they have a wall in their heads that is keeping Donald Trump living there. Can&rsquo;t say I blame them as President Trump may not be winning the Miss Congeniality battle, but he sure is winning on substantive conservative issues. President Trump has led the charge in putting conservatives on the Supreme Court, undoing Obamacare, lowering corporate and personal taxes, pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord, tearing up the Iran nuclear agreement, signing new trade deals, engaging with North Korea and China and now President Trump is going for his signature promise ... the wall.<br />\n Unfortunately the Democrats&rsquo; mental wall is also standing between their brains and common-sense security for our country. How else can one explain their ridiculous actions and responses during the government shutdown over border security?<br />\n The Democrats&rsquo; arguments against the wall are as laughable as the staging of Nancy and Chuck&rsquo;s response to President Trump&rsquo;s Oval Office address.&nbsp; With straight faces Democrats claim walls don&rsquo;t work, walls are immoral, walls aren&rsquo;t who we are as a nation, walls are ineffective, walls are unnecessary, drones are better, and the one I really love is &ldquo;this is a made-up crisis.&rdquo;</p>\n<p> I&rsquo;LL LET two presidents refute the Democrats&rsquo; absurd position on border security. Here&rsquo;s what President Obama said back in 2014: &ldquo;We now have an actual humanitarian crisis on the border that only underscores the need to drop the politics and fix our immigration system once and for all. In recent weeks we&rsquo;ve seen a surge of unaccompanied children arrive at the border, brought here and to other countries by smugglers and traffickers.&rdquo;<br />\n And, of course, President Trump&rsquo;s perfect response during his recent Oval Office address: &ldquo;Some have suggested a barrier is immoral. Then why do wealthy politicians build walls, fences and gates around their homes? They don&rsquo;t build walls because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside.&rdquo;<br />\n But because of the Trump wall in their heads, the Democrats are not giving an inch to reality as shown by this exchange with Speaker Pelosi and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. According to the Wall Street Journal, &ldquo;The two had a brief exchange after Nielsen read statistics about the border and the amount of crime related to illegal immigration. &ldquo;I reject your facts,&rdquo; Pelosi said to Nielsen &ldquo;These aren&rsquo;t my facts,&rdquo; the secretary then responded. &ldquo;These are the facts.&rdquo;<br />\n Please don&rsquo;t get me started on how Democrats in general don&rsquo;t believe facts. However, I would love to ask Ms. Pelosi if those &ldquo;facts&rdquo; are wrong, then what are all the liberal sanctuary cities protecting illegal immigrants from exactly?<br />\n Nancy Pelosi offered the Democrats&rsquo; solution: &ldquo;The fact is we all agree that we need to secure our borders, while honoring our values: We can build the infrastructure and roads at our ports of entry; we can install new technology to scan cars and trucks for drugs coming into our nation; we can hire the personnel we need to facilitate trade and immigration at the border; and we can fund more innovation to detect unauthorized crossings.&rdquo;<br />\n The Democrats&rsquo; border policy reminds me of the old joke: Why did the French plant trees along the Champs Elysees? So the Germans could march in the shade as they invaded France.&nbsp; Pelosi&rsquo;s response sounds all warm and fuzzy but does nothing to affect the types of illegal crossings we have today.</p>\n<p> IN THE meantime, Pelosi and Schumer will allow government workers to suffer in their endeavor to leave our borders open and unprotected. Why? Because President Trump has built a new Trump Tower in their heads.</p>\n<p> &nbsp;<br />\n Email your questions to <a href=\"mailto:marklevy92@aol.com\">marklevy92@aol.com</a>.</p>\n', created = 1576034103, expire = 1576120503, headers = '', serialized = 0 WHERE cid = '2:9cd5c46f77d12336f67c0ad57fae9dde' in /home/conserva/public_html/includes/cache.inc on line 112.
