HAVE THE DEMOCRATS DISCOVERED THE CONSTITUTION?
For many years, the democrats have found the Constitution to be an impediment to their goals. To get around that document, they have invented the concept of a flexible Constitution, one that must be interpreted not as written, and not in accord with the intent of those who wrote it, but instead as one that changes according to the moment – the moment always being the current Democratic Party Agenda. Their motto is, the Constitution be damned. One federal judge has gone so far as openly aver that the Constitution is completely irrelevant, implying that it should be ignored or scrapped entirely. (Thank God this SOB retired from the bench in 2017.)
However, now that President Trump has vowed to build a border wall without explicit legislative approval, those Democrats who are opposed are hypocritically arguing that the Constitution forbids him doing that. Yes, the Constitution suddenly must be followed to the letter. Even some Republicans who strongly favor the wall are worried that a future president might use Trump’s precedent to unilaterally enforce policies that the left has vowed to enact, such as banning fossil fuels or confiscating privately owned guns.
But that is already the case. The constitution has been being violated for decades now, or, at the least, flagrantly misinterpreted. One example is the birthright citizenship, which has enticed thousands of illegal aliens to enter the United States explicitly for the purpose of giving birth to a child on U.S. soil, thereby imparting natural citizenship, with the subsequent chain migration of his relatives. No reasonable case can be made that this was the intent of the Framers. Another example is the Tenth Amendment, which explicitly forbids the federal government from using powers it does not have., those not enumerated in the Constitution. Rarely is this amendment invoked to prevent government overreach. Had it been enforced over the years, the abuse of federal powers would have been significantly reduced.
The nation desperately needs a broad framework of laws and policies that will protect the taxpayer from being overburdened by a flood of poorly skilled low-wage workers who do not share our values or even our language. Those need laws and policies are not enacted, nor enforced when enacted, because Democratic politicians seek the votes of those who depend on welfare, while wealthy corporations seek their cheap labor, passing the costs on to society.
The process has been used against us. President Trump rightly understands that immediate action is needed to reverse the neglect and malfeasance by those who demand that the process be followed, at least when it serves their purposes. He is taking that action.

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL
It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than to find one American hating moron Democrat in Washington D.C. with any common sense.
A SIMPLE TRUTH FOR TODAY
Uncle Joe Biden has selected “I’m sorry” by Brenda Lee for his campaign song.
