The GOP Needs To Do What’s Best For America. The Senate Must Vote To Fill Justice Ginsburg’s Seat Immediately

Published

on

Supreme Court

This is a war. It’s a war for the future of this great nation.

The November Presidential election will be one of the epic battles of this war and the Democrats have already prepared the field for a long-drawn-out battle. On Friday, that war intensified unexpectedly with the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It is now up to the GOP Senate to stand firm and show the American people which side of the fence they are on.

The election battle is already expected to sweep the nation into months of confusion, hardship and uncertainty. Democrats have ensured this will happen with universal mail-in ballots. They’ve also done this by feeding the beasts of division in our urban streets and incentivizing extremist groups – like Antifa, the Black Lives Matter organization, among other radical groups – to tear our beautiful cities apart and pit our nation against itself.

And while we, the hard-working American people, were too trusting and too busy with our own lives to notice – the Socialist and Marxist Democrats infiltrated our high schools, colleges and universities. These Marxists spent decades indoctrinating our children, America’s future generations.

It is many of these young, impressionable Americans we see on the streets rioting. Moreover, we see the rise of the Marxist Socialist class and their ideology being spewed openly by newly elected Congressional Democrats, like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and her squad, and others.

This liberal mob will fight dirty and make threats. It is the reason Ocasio-Cortez owns Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. It’s the reason why Ocasio-Cortez, and her now side-kick Pelosi, have threatened to impeach Trump again and Attorney General William Barr if the president attempts to fill the vacancy left by Ginsburg.

Mind you, the establishment Democrats and the Rhino ‘Lincoln Project’ Republicans will not be able to take down the beast they have fed. They’ve opened Pandora’s box and we’re seeing the results of this getting more and more dangerous every day.

Trump has the opportunity to pummel these threats to our nation. He can fight for the American people with his Constitutional right to select a nominee to fill the vacancy. It is the reason this great Republic, the American people put him into office.

Any GOP Senators walking the fence on this need to think really hard about what they are doing and why they would be willing to sacrifice such a momentous opportunity to do what’s right.

There is nothing unethical or wrong in making the selection. There is nothing unethical or wrong about the Senate voting for the nominee. There is precedent because it has happened 14 times before during an election year.

Trump is a fighter and he is poised to make his selection to fill the vacancy in the Supreme Court by Friday or Saturday. His actions will be historic and his legacy will be unshakable for this very action. Trump will go down as one of the greatest, if not the greatest President, in modern U.S. history. If the Senate doesn’t support him they will go down as America’s greatest modern failure.

How they will be remembered will be up to them. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should heed this warning and do his best to ensure that he gets the votes he needs from his colleagues, as he did during the Supreme Court Justice Bret Kavanaugh’s hearings.

It won’t be easy.

The Republican dominated Senate must fight alongside Trump without hesitation. The Senators must care more about this nation and protecting the pillars of this great government than themselves.

The GOP must do what is right and they must realize that there is no turning back. There should be no compromise. The Constitution and our fragile republic is worth the fight.

If they fail to do this, the Democrats and the radical elements will seize power and momentum. The Republicans will be in the trash heap of history and the party of Abraham Lincoln will truly be hijacked by the radical left.

It will lose its power completely.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden, already has an army of lawyers – roughly 600 – working to fight the election if the outcome is even close, which is why the DNC has pushed for universal mail-in ballots.

Democrats have already promised that there will be no winner on election night. This is what the Democrats have counted on. They do not hide their intentions and frankly, they are preparing their generals for battle on the political field.

Former Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton has already called for Biden not to accept defeat on election night under any circumstances. All over social media, leftist radicals are threatening to burn down Washington D.C. if Trump – even with his Constitutional right – selects a Supreme Court justice.

The radical left is screaming mad because they know what’s at stake.

Do you? We should be just as concerned.

We should understand that we can’t take our nation for granted anymore and that this republic is fragile. We cannot be afraid. We have a chance to define ourselves at this moment in history.

We must demand the same of our Senate.

Mayorkas Border Manifesto: Why the DHS Secretary must be impeached

If this isn’t a reason to impeach Mayorkas, I don’t know what is.

Published

on

Alejandro Mayorkas

Listen to “The Smoking Gun: The Mayorkas Memo Telling Border Patrol to Stop Doing Its Job” on Spreaker.

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued a memorandum to top DHS officials on Sept 30, 2021, that set the stage for an open border policy that has resulted in the most dangerous national security situation the United States has ever confronted. That seven-page letter, written by Mayorkas and obtained by this columnist, is an open borders blueprint and reveals his purposeful failure to secure the southern border. Numerous retired and current DHS officials said it is sufficient enough for Congress to impeach him.

The Mayorkas policy, which has perpetuated a tsunami of people from all over the world to illegally enter the United States, is simplified and made clear in his memorandum. It is so direct that it is easy to see why the policy overrides almost all U.S. immigration laws by pushing all federal immigration agencies under DHS to exercise  “prosecutorial discretion” [ not the law ] to assess whether those who enter the country illegally should be given the right to stay, despite any criminal background or failure to qualify for asylum.

Some of the memo’s contents have been openly discussed by Mayorkas under questioning by lawmakers at hearings. Even parts of the policies have been exposed in reports but what makes this memo unique is that it is the roadmap the Biden Administration used to implement this failed open border policy that has become the biggest concern for most American voters.

And Mayorkas is the architect of the policy. It is a policy that fails to uphold the Constitution, and current immigration laws and turns Federal law enforcement officers and agents into de facto human traffickers.

“In exercising our discretion, we are guided by the fact that the majority of undocumented noncitizens who could be subject to removal have been contributing members of our communities for years,” states Mayorkas, as he goes on to list all the possible jobs illegal aliens are doing in the nation. “The fact an individual is removable noncitizen therefore should not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them. We will use our discretion and focus our enforcement resources in a more targeted way.”

Those ‘targeted resources’ Mayorkas was referring to have mostly been directed at processing illegal migrants into the country and not deporting those breaking the law, according to lawmakers and DHS officials who spoke with me. I’ve documented for the past three years on both Fox News’ Sean Hannity and on SaraACarter.com the enormous resources used not to deport but to import illegal aliens into the country.

Rep. Andy Biggs, who is currently co-chair of the Border Security Caucus and the House Judiciary Committee, where he is the Chairman of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Federal Government Surveillance. told me Sunday that the memo in its entirety is Mayorka’s ideological push for open borders and it’s “his philosophy, cobbled together in place…the letter reflects his distorted thinking on border security.”

Mayorkas’ ‘distorted thinking’ has now led to calls for his impeachment. There are currently two articles of impeachment against Mayorkas. The articles charge him with “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” and a “breach of public trust.” This memo alone is evidence of that breach with the American public.

In the first article, the Republicans with the House Homeland Security Committee state that Mayorkas “has repeatedly violated laws enacted by Congress regarding immigration and border security…His refusal to obey the law is not only an offense against the separation of powers in the Constitution of the United States, it also threatens our national security and has had a dire impact on communities across the country.”

Republicans accused Mayorkas in the second impeachment article of “knowingly making false statements to Congress and the American people and avoiding lawful oversight to obscure the devastating consequences of his willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law and carry out his statutory duties.” And although the feckless Senate may not have the votes to make the impeachment stick, it will expose those Republicans who truly are open borders advocates from those who believe in the Constitution and the rule of law. It would require a two-thirds majority to convict and remove Mayorkas from office.

If there was ever a reason for impeachment, Mayorkas fits the bill. His impeachment will send a clear message to the Biden Administration and Senators on both sides of the aisle that gig is up and that our nation’s security must be the priority.

Mayorkas ushered in the administration’s expansive use of  “prosecutorial discretion”  that allowed our borders to become an open gateway for our adversaries, drug cartels, terrorists and people from all over the world, stated Joel Maldonado, a recently retired Border Patrol Supervisor, who spoke for the first time about the memo to me on, The Sara Carter Show podcast Sunday.

“When we are not upholding the law but being forced to commit treason it puts everyone at risk, it’s demoralizing and they are lying to the American people,” said Maldonado, who published his first book on his 28 years with the Border Patrol, A Binding Oath: A Border Patrol Journey and the Mayorkas Effect. 

Maldonado, who retired in March 2023, had never seen the Mayorkas memo until this year. He said it coincided with the policy his station in Texas had to abide by and a dangerous policy “that continues to this day.”

“The memo itself is a smoking gun, it’s proof that the administration usurped the law with this prosecutorial discretion policy, along with so much more,’ he said. He described how he and other supervisors would put agents out on the border to conduct enforcement instead of using them all for processing illegal aliens into the country when directed to do so by DHS. He said “We would do this out of sight of Washington D.C. and DHS but then be scolded later if we increased our apprehensions. They wanted us to process and they didn’t care how many more people came in or what the consequences would be.”

The seven-page memo was emailed from Mayorkas to Director Tae Johnson, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement; Acting Commissioner Troy Miller, U.S. Customs and Border Protection; Director Ur Jaddou, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services; Robert Silvers, Under Secretary of Office of Strategy, Policy, and Plans; Katherine Culliton-Gonzalez, Officer for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties and Lynne Parker Dupree, Chief Privacy Officer with the Privacy Office.

Many areas of the memo are striking but one that stood out was the list of reasons and excuses that Mayorkas gives can be used when attempting to not deport illegal aliens that clearly present a danger to the nation or have violated U.S. law.

This memo “brings to the forefront the official policy of Alejandro Mayorkas to open wide our southern border,” Biggs stated, adding that he believes Congress has the votes to impeach the DHS Secretary.

One of the most stunning parts of the memo refers to the ‘threat to public safety.’  Mayorkas said those threats possibly posed by illegal aliens are ‘not to be determined according to bright lines or categories. Instead, it requires an assessment of the individual and the totality of the facts and circumstances.’

He lists reasons for enforcement action, such as, “sophistication of criminal offense, use or threatened use of a firearm or dangerous weapon, serious prior criminal record” but then follows with mitigating reasons as to what could constitute a reason not to deport them.

He states,  “There can be mitigating factors that militate in favor of declining enforcement action: 

  • advance or tender age
  • lengthy presence in the United States
  • a mental condition that may have contributed to the criminal conduct, or a physical or mental condition requiring care or treatment
  • Status as a victim of crime or victim, witness, or legal party in legal proceedings,
  • the impact of removal on family in the United States, such as loss of a provider or caregiver,
  • whether the noncitizen may be eligible for humanitarian protection or other immigration relief
  • military or other public service of the noncitizen or their immediate family;
  • time since an offense and evidence of rehabilitation;
  • conviction was vacated or expunged

Maldonado said the list of excuses to allow illegal criminals to stay “is basically a strict warning to supervisors” in Border Patrol, ICE and other agencies that deportation was no longer a priority. The priority was ensuring that those who came in illegally stayed in the country, regardless of status, asylum claims or failure to properly vet them for national security threats.

What’s more disturbing in the Mayorkas border manifesto – is not just how he ties the hands of federal agents and risks the national security of our nation – but how he exonerates himself and the Biden Administration from any possible repercussions due to a dangerous open border policy.

“The civil immigration enforcement does not compel an action to be taken or not taken. Instead, the guidance leaves the exercise of prosecutorial discretion to the judgment of our personnel,” Mayorkas states.

Maldonado, and numerous other retired and current Border Patrol supervisors and agents, told me this guidance gives the federal officials – including Mayorkas – cover,  by putting the onus on the federal law enforcement officers who are forced to process people into the nation, and not the administration’s policy.

One current ICE supervisor, who spoke on condition of anonymity, summed it up by saying, “It means if anything goes wrong – if there’s a terror attack or something of that magnitude because of what Mayorkas has done – it will be the poor BP agent or ICE officer that will be blamed…Even though we have been the ones forced to let in the criminals and terrorists because of Mayorkas’ policy.”

If that isn’t a reason to impeach Mayorkas, I don’t know what is.
