President Trump informed the Republican leaders he would not sign their end of year continuing resolution. He has to be as annoyed and disappointed with the GOP as most of us are, probably more so. They have promised to get things done over and over and failed, offering only excuses. Sometime, either before or after his meeting with Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy, Trump tweeted the following which is so right on the money:
When I begrudgingly signed the Omnibus Bill, I was promised the Wall and Border Security by leadership. Would be done by end of year (NOW). It didn’t happen! We foolishly fight for Border Security for other countries – but not for our beloved U.S.A. Not good!
Exactly right, Mr. President! Thank you and God bless you.

America has spent billions, trillions, of dollars defending and giving aid to other countries. As Rush said recently, $5 billion is a rounding error in the overall scheme of things budgetary. We apparently just gave $10 billion to Mexico and Central America (out of the State Department budget) to “help improve conditions so people won’t want to migrate.”
Seems money flows out of DC to defend or help everyone but the hard working Americans footing the bill…and we’re not allowed to object either, by the way. If we do we are labeled uncaring and evil. It’s enough to take the Ho, Ho, Ho out of the holidays.
But, like many things American…we may just have to do it ourselves…to hell with the DC rats that give us no respect.
Airman Kolfage (featured in photo at left) is the man who was viciously attacked in comments. He’s won awards for courage. He even co-founded a company called Military Grade Coffee with 10% of the proceeds going to veterans groups.
Now he’s helped to start a GoFundMe for Trumps Wall.
Via the most excellent, J. Soden in comments:
And more on the Wall. As of 4:10pm, AZ time, the GoFundMe account has gone up to $7.9 million!
You can follow it here – or donate – at https://www.gofundme.com/TheTrumpWall
I just went to the page and there were 134,508 donations so far and the fund has risen to $8,186,020 (It’s 3:43 PM CA time)
Only four more days…., my friends.
