The U.S. Military is about to do one thing that has Donald Trump’s enemies trembling with fear

Donald Trump has faced threats on every front.

But one of the biggest obstacles the President faced is now gone.

And that’s because the U.S. Military is about to do one thing that has Donald Trump’s enemies trembling with fear.

Donald Trump declared a national emergency in February to unlock military construction funds to build a border wall.

And on Tuesday, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper told Congressional leaders that the administration was prepared to use $3.6 billion dollars worth of military construction funds to begin construction on the border wall.

Politico reports:

Defense Secretary Mark Esper informed congressional leaders on Tuesday of the cash grab from a total of 127 military projects. Roughly half the money will come from funds previously dedicated to upgrading military bases abroad and the other half in the United States.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Esper told him some of the money will come from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in his home state of New York.

“It is a slap in the face to the members of the Armed Forces who serve our country that President Trump is willing to cannibalize already allocated military funding to boost his own ego and for a wall he promised Mexico would pay to build,” Schumer said in a statement.

Trump declared a national emergency in February in order to divert $8 billion from various federal accounts to build a physical barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border, including a Treasury Department fund and Defense Department efforts to interdict illegal drugs.

Illegal aliens invading the country in numbers not seen in over a decade is a crisis for America.

Building a wall where no physical barrier existed is one part of a strategy to end this catastrophe.

A recent Supreme Court ruling allowed the administration to proceed with using military construction funds to build the wall.

And given that President Trump can veto any congressional attempt to limit his legal authority under the National Emergency Act of 1976, there is nothing that can be done to stop the President from fulfilling his promise to build hundreds of miles of the border wall before the 2020 election.

  1. Some liberal baby killing Judge will put a fake halt to it and another and another. No matter what the law or authority President Trump has but what needs to happen is Americans take up arms. Diplomacy has stopped what in the US?

  2. I love how people that have never been within 300 miles of the southern border always chime in and say what a waste of money a wall is and how ineffective it would be. I have lived here all my life in close proximity of the border, I have relatives that are ranchers , law enforcement, and military here in Arizona and they will attest to the need for and the effectiveness of the new sections that have been completed or upgraded. I still offer an open invitation to any nay sayer to come here and I will make sure they get a personal tour of the border so they can see with their own eyes just what is really going on instead of believing the constant MSM propaganda.

  3. Everybody should carry a gun, that way if someone takes your parking spot or cuts you off in traffic you can deal with them without delay.
    Guns need to have 100 round feeds, that you can really kill deer/elk and birds.
    What better way to implant a natural selection process then seeing who is the fastest on the draw. Chicago is leading the USA on this form of population control.

    • Don’t forget someone cutting in line at the grocery store. Just put a gun to their head and blow them brains all over the Piggly Wiggly. By God!!

  4. Perhaps the sicknesses arriving in Ca-lee-a-for-knee-ia will generate enough ‘croaking’ to rid the state of the ‘fool caste’, who hold all gum’mnt offices. If so YEEHAA!!!!!

  5. Someone, please slap Chuck Schumer, Smucky Chucky, upside the head hard enough to give him at least a mild concussion. Schumer more than likely voted against any and all military appropriations but now that Trump will use that money on the wall that damn fool gets all weepy-eyed about the uniformed services not getting new construction.
    The slap in the face is delivered by Schumer to the voters.

    • Building and more importantly maintaining a wall is a waste of time. Most immigrants to this country come in through ports, not crossing the desert. Building a wall in some places would be prohibitively expensive, not to mention the routine maintenance. Symbolically, it makes this country look like East Germany. Thank God, if there one, which is doubtful, Trump will be defeated in 2020 and this insanity will end.

      • Mr Sloan, what rock did you crawl out from under?, I guess while you were under that cover!, your communications with the outside world wasn’t very adequate?, because even the FAKE MEDIA showed the ILLEGALS CROSSING!, so Mr Sloan, please go back to SLEEP. Mr SCHUMER will notify you when your needed ?, again. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

      • I think they building the wall in wrong place anyway it should be built around California and new York then when these illegals want in put them either in California or new York if that what the liberals want then they can have them cut off all funds to them also let them pay ther welfare bill

  6. Hey Redman, I just want you to know that there are many really fine people posting here and you’re being very rude to them, I was always taught to be respectful, a would have had my face slapped off if I were ever disrespectful, especially you a woman, please try and restrain yourself, I know you are uncouth, but don’t resort to being rude, try to make a cogent argument instead. Please you’re upbringing is on display here.

  7. This is a national emergency because these Illegals are bringing all types of diseases into our country. Now we have Lepracy in the United States that had come from these Illegals and Ebola was discovered as well. The border fence must be built. These Democrats need to shut the hell up and start working for the people because that is why they were put in office in the first place.

    • Damn right! It’s a beautiful thing isn’t it? Gotta love this President of ours. With all the Obstruction and Adversity? He is still accomplishing what he has promised. Build that wall’ one way or another? Who cares how? Just get it done. 👍🗽🇺🇸😎

      • US military is tasked with defending the nation against all threats both foreign and domestic. The wall is justifiably warrented because of illegal entry by all.

        • What threat? FBI and Cato Institute reports state immigrants do not cause the majority of crimes here. Most of the asylum seekers want to leave their country because they want to protect their children from drug cartels and gangs. It is a known fact that China and Russia are producing more weapons and we are not. Our fleet new ships – finally we have built a new modern aircraft carrier. The money spent on the wall will take away money from defense and I believe Mr. Trump is usurping the The Constitution because only the Congress is
          responsible for allocating funds. A recent news report shows an asylum seeking using a ladder to climb one of the walls and you have two oceans on which immigrants can come into our country. ONE CANNOT REASON WITH A PERSON WHO IS IGNORANT OR BIASED.

    • Actually, the resurgence of measles is more of a public health crisis than Laparcy (could you cite your source for this to back your claim, which sounds phoney?). And the reason this is happening is because of those who do not trust the government and think the measles epidemic is all a part of “big pharma” conspiracy. “Personal liberty,” a rallying cry for the anti-vaxers, is not a license to endanger other people based on personal stupidity. If your kids get sick because you choose not to vaccinate them, keep them home until they either get well or die.

    • Until American voters gain enough intelligence to begin voting out their elected reps when they fail to produce results which US citizens are seeking, nothing will ever change for the better. Instead, they’ll keep getting worse. Amazingly, even Bill Gates has finally woken up to the reality that President Trump is right about severely limiting the intake of useless migrants and refugees who will live off US taxpayers.

  8. This is a national emergency because these Illegals are bringing all types of diseases into our country. New we have Lepracy in the United States that had come from these Illegals and Ebola was discovered as well. The border fence must be built. These Democrats need to shut the hell up and start working for the people because that is why they were put in office in the first place.

  9. HOW ABOUT A TAX ON ALL MONIES SENT TO MEXICO, FROM PEOPLE HERE, TO BE USED TO PAY FOR
    THE WALL AND OTHER EXPENSES INCURRED BY ILLEGALS??? tHAT WOULD GET THE MONKEY OFF THE BACKS OF CITIZENS.

  10. Mueller Is known to be a sneaky person.
    Years ago he sent 4 men to prison that we’re innocent
    of the crimes. And in 2000 they discovered he and the fbi
    Covered it up, he has the nerve to say anything at all.
    Mueller Is a joke in a box of shame.

  11. demonrats are wasting our money each day and each minute… the scoundrels in “congress” and in “senate” are plotting against our President and working all time ONLY on starting the impeachment process These morons should be hold accountable for their crimes of misusing our taxes… Let’s help our Nation and vote out all that demo-vermin

    • We [all] The People of the U.S.of A. better say “No” to all anti-American R.I.N.O.’s and especially ALL the anti-American democrats and their tool for that agenda the bought out biased medias propaganda LIES and relentlessly monitor ALL voting polls for fraudulent means be it local and especially national or else Americans will loose big time their country and the rest that makes America great!

  12. i told trump along time a go once yu get the crap out of the way everything will fall into place and it looks as most are geting behind him . and it will happen. amen.keep the faith we must keep the faith and pray all continues. god bless ur president ournation and ourpeople we will persivier.

  13. well democrats are to busy dreaming up new phony lies to get rid of trump to sit down and do their job but then on the other hand even if they did sit down they don’t have a brain that works to make laws that will work , the only thing they know how to do is buy votes with tax payer dollars , if they only spent tax money on things for america , we wouldn’t have trillions of dollars of debt

    • Funny, they weren’t saying anything when Obama did nothing to protect our southern border! Probably could have built half of it from the money he wasted doing the “Look at me” tour! * Bloody years of it! He was a community leader, as he started and he failed at that, Democrats were grooming him right from the start to be the first black president, I really could give a crap about what your color is, just like in the military, I want to know if you can do the job or not! Ben Carson would have put Obama to shame! Yes I know they are different in parties!

      • Keith, there is no comparison between Obama and Ben Carson. Carson has intelligence, integrity, character, humility, honesty, love of God and country, NONE of which Obama has. He would have made a great president

  14. Where the border wall is cobcerned, if congress does not want military funds and other federal funds diverted to build the wall tgeb they need to give their brains a break and take a load off their minds by getting off their collective butts and authorize the funds for the wall.

  15. REALLY SCHUMER??? It would be a slap in the face of the military?? YOU and your demonrat compadres OBSTRUCT the military, and I.C.E., at every turn!! DONT BE GIVING US THAT CRAP!!

  16. It’s real easy to stop illegal immigration without a wall. Just don’t give them any government assistance at all when they get here telling them if you come here as far as getting any benefits from us, you’re SOL after all that’s why they come here for in the first place.

      • White Phosphorus (Willie Pete) might be a better choice for the border
        Willie scorches a human being into a charred husk and was effective in Iraq.Time magazine could show the bodies on the cover of an upcoming issue. By God.

    • Congress also needs to mandate use of E-Verify for ALL JOBS, not just for new-hires, and they also need to rescind the asinine law which forces American taxpayers to provide free public education to the offspring of illegals. If illegals can’t work in US, and can’t collect any social welfare benefits, and can’t enroll their kids in school unless they can pay for their education, the only option left for illegals will be to go home!

      • Actually 11th, you have it half right; You wrote “If illegals can’t work in US, and can’t collect any social welfare benefits, and can’t enroll their kids in school unless they can pay for their education, the only option left for illegals will be to go home!”….let me add that there is one option you did not include here so I will finish your statement with “or they will have to come to this country LEGALLY, apply for asylum and / or green card and pay their way forward”. Any immigrant should be allowed the option to apply for admittance to our country legally and if they pass the requirements, they should be welcomed with open arms, as long as they realize that they come to America to be Americans, not come to America to have us acclimate to their native culture, and as long as they will pay their own way.

    • Exactly. 11th Generation American has nailed it. But the commie traitors in Congress & everywhere else will pull anything to prevent any such elimination of benefits for illegals & criminals, because they are allies.

      Leftists seem to have full spectrum narcissistic psychosis & inflict PTSD on opponents by using verbal abuse & lies of every kind as well as other terroristic underhanded tactics of the dedicated psychotic-natcissist. See for yourself:

  17. The wall will be completed. We the people, will make sure that the nonsense that is bring displayed, will be sidetracked, permanently. These candidates will say anything to get your vote. God help us, if any of them succeeds. BUT THAT WILL NOT HAPPEN. Gruess Gott

    • You The People better make sure their is No cheating at the polls or the next President [a anti-American democrat] will reverse all of what the people’s President Donald Trump has done! Say ‘NO” to all anti-American democrats and their tool the bought out biased medias propaganda LIES!

  18. Donald Trump may use several ways to make Mexico pay for the border wall. (Just the threat of doing these things may do the trick!) They include: (1) Redo NAFTA & ask Canada to help. (Yes, a lot of illegal aliens cross the US to get to Canada.) (2) Clamp down on anyone here illegally sending funds to Mexico. (3) Refuse to let anyone else come across our southern border, unless they are delivering goods by truck, plane, or ship. Watch thousands of non-Mexicans pile up at entry points, remaining Mexico’s problem! (4) Scrap the treaty where we agree NOT to execute “undocumented” Mexicans who murder US citizens. (Mexico doesn’t have a death penalty, so they figure we shouldn’t either.) (5) Add Mexico to the list of foreign nations where Americans aren’t allowed to travel. Thousands of winter tourists drop billions while there. Executive orders doing those things under a national emergency will work, if we have the fortitude to follow through!

  19. Very interesting. But REMEMBER Trumps words. We will build the wall and who will pay for it??? MEXICO…How many hundreds of times did we here that????? Over and over and over again. Looks like ALL taxpayers must NOW be Mexicans because we will be paying this bill. Just in “true” Donald J Trump fashion……MORE BULLSHIT!!!!!

      • THE SICKMAN (redman) should be our president, he’s obviously a genius – at JABBERWOCKY. A REAL PSYCHOPATH. hahahahahahahahahahaha. hahahahahahahahahahaha
        hahahahahahahahahahaha
        hahahahahahahahahahaha

    • I would much rather pay for a border wall than to throw money away on phony Mueller investigations, or pay for all the free benefits given to people who are here illegally! Not to mention all the money being spent on the care of illegal people staying in the detention centers! What about that, Dan Tyree!?

      • I agree with you Elizabeth, but would ad all the money to Abortion clinics to kill all the babies, an to the Colleges to teach our youth how to be little Commies and not know how to think for themselves because they are little cowards.

    • Reminds me of Obama ,if you like your healthcare you can keep it ,if you like your doctor you can keep him .just more b******* right.

    • Have you any idea of how much money used o flow across the border from those illegals in USA, sending money to family or relaives? And how many was here in 2006 era. That was when Colorado proved they would self deport themselves back across the bornder to the south, if all benetsis, and ability to live under cover. Legislators called back in June to write more restrictive laws, on living in USA, if not legal. And all those families living 2-3 families in single family houses, bought $95 permit at the Mexican consulate office, in Denver, hooked up 3/4 ton or 1 tnn dually pickups, to trailers, loaded household goods and other stuff bought in USa, and headed south, down I-25. And houses were damaged, demolished, leaving the lenders, and those who had contracted to buy those properties, to face the music. But it can be done, with right Administration, and adherence to the law.

    • Better tax dollars pay for it if we can stop the flow of ILLEGALS. The wall will cost less that taking care of them when they get here. Funny how you all are so bent out of shape about Mexico not paying for it when your real problem with the whole thing is that you didn’t want it built in the first place. Why don’t y’all just admit that you are mad he’s keeping his promise, something most Americans are grateful for.

  20. A wall will help our military, and our law in forcement peoples. Why is that wrong. Ex military wife and mother. 5th generation speaking hete.

  21. God Bless Trump, he is the only one to fight for our national sovereignty, and regulated fair immigration, the democrats want open borders for countless millions of poor illegal families here so they get votes, and we get taxed to keep them here and their families. They have rights and Congress does not give a poop about us. If they care about people they would first seal the border and second concentrate on California’s homeless. If 9o% of refugees become illegals then this shit at the border must end and end now. Please do not correct my grammar, accept my typos, and stuck to topic. Most of us have shared values and opinions.

  22. It’s so obvious that people can’t see the forest for the trees. Trump has played his cards correctly. Now he can take all of the money that the DOD would normally get from guns and money seized from drugs and guns and use this money to help build the wall. Doing this is the way that Mexico will pay for the wall. Very cleaver of Donald Trump. Still, one of the best Presidents we have ever had.

  23. Every nation has whose borders, every home has a limit line, every person has whose own body space! Why can not our Country has our BORDER WALL? National Border Securities must be the First Concern in the heart of every CITIZEN! Does anyone who keeps whose front door opens 7/24? An open Border is like an OPEN FRONT DOOR! Support our PRESIDRNT! He knows and understadn what he is doing, that is why the PEOPLE voted for HIM!

    • I can see that English isn’t your first language. That said you still got your message through. I agree with your thought. Keep studying English, It’s good that this Nation has good citizens such as you. May GOD (YHVH) bless you and our great Nation. I pray in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

  24. Every nation has whose borders, every home has a limit line, every person has whose own body space! Why can not our Country has our BORDER WALL? National Border Securities must be the First Concern in the heart of every CITIZEN! Does anyone who keeps whose front door opens 7/24? An open Border is like an OPEN FRONT DOOR! Support our PRESIDRNT! He knows and understadn what he is doing, that is why the PEOPLE voted for HIM!

  25. Out of the mouth of a wolf! I’m a USAF retired Combat Aircrew. I can’t believe “Chuckie” would say a word when for years every Democratic Administration has bled the Military dry of funding. Planes catabolized for parts to keep other aircraft flying until they fell apart as well, replacement orders for parts and systems cut. Bases closed, no raises or slight raises for years. Finally we get the second coming of Regan in office (who made the Military officially an honorable profession instead of a third class citizen with a weapon), and you have the nerve to say something?! Very appropriate as USAF Contracting gears up for end of the fiscal year spending up until midnight at the last day of this month so the “electrocrats” don’t take any money out of next years budgets. All in the name of military construction (isn’t that synonymous with the military’s duty), to defend and keep our nation safe? You sicken me and my Brothers and Sisters in arms. How many died due to cutting training funds?! As we say in the service, “Get Your Head out of your six” Chuckie!

    • Trump is more like the second coming of “kill the bank” Andrew Jackson. “Trail of tears” too. Got that SICK MAN PSYCHO?

      • James , it’s SIMPLE, notice the remark sounds just like a computer , ” title does not project content , had to read it twice ” , there brainwashed Alright , absolutely NO COMMON SENSE whatsoever , ” It ” can’t be reasoned with plain n simple
