Like so many others, I watched the president address the nation on the border wall problem. Then I also watched the Democratic response. then I watched all the news channels and their attempt at fact checking. I have also been following like most, a all the drama that has been going. I come away with the following observations ;
after the president’s speech I have seen from most of the mainstream media an attempt to fact check and put down what he has said ,but all their efforts show that his data was accurate . the best that they could do was to try and qualify the data to show his error if any .
One of their biggest attempts was to say that the drug seizures were all at border checkpoints . well , DUHHHH. Tat is where most of the enforcement is concentrated . there is no way of telling how many cross the border in unprotected areas and the counts are only from those areas that are protected .
Then in their after the address speech Chuck and Nancy could only come up with their same old tired talking points . orange man bad, orange man lie, wall immoral, wall ineffective , just the same old same old. they attempted to convince the American public that Mr. Trump had provided him with no details . when in actuality had provided them with a complete plan , drawn up incooperation with the people involved , law enforcement, DHS ,. .. .
So what did we see last night? we saw from the president a request to protect the border and open up the government .we saw the president saythat the wall is only part of the solution. this solution includes more of everything. more technology ,more border patrol personnel, more facilities. Everything the Democrats want. we also saw , from the Democratic leadership the constant resist and we will not do anything you want even though it helps the nation , routine.
Do not be surprised if all you see today for the news stations is an attempt tear down anything Mr. trump had said . you’ll also see lots of stories of how it is affecting the workers , avoiding any mention of the issues attempting to be dealt with . with Chuckies call for the president to open up the government and we will take care of border security later , we see that if that course is taken , border security will never get taken care. it will just be shoved off to the side and never acted on .
