What is a leader supposed to do when detractors happen to be more interested in destroying you personally than doing what they were hired to do? Such is the case with the President. There is story after story about how the loyal "resistance," the coup-makers, are wanting Donald Trump's income tax returns and to continue a needless investigation into a phantom collusion scandal costing taxpayers millions. Meanwhile, the invasion of the United States at its southern border with Mexico continues because the coup-makers refuse to work with the President on securing America's borders. This is insurrection and seditious because it is putting all Americans at risk from crime, disease and more.
Neo-communist New York state legislators are slated to introduce a bill allowing the New York Department of Taxation and Finance to release any state tax return requested by leaders of the US House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Finance Committee, and the Joint House-Senate Committee on Taxation. The New York Times reports that the bill's sponsor, State Senator Brad Hoylman (D-Manhattan), says it is "a safety valve for any attempt by the White House to block the Congress from doing this at the federal level." These people are more interested in obstructing government and personal vendettas than they are in doing what is best for the nation.
Meanwhile, the President is cleaning house in the Department of Homeland Security and Citizen and Immigration Services in an attempt to get stricter administrative control over border security. Yet, everything he does is frustrated by Democratic Party coup-makers in the courts and Congress. Trump has diminishing options to deal with the border crisis because of government insiders, court challenges, immigration laws, and Congressional democrats. For example, AP reports Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said, "The purge of senior leadership at the Department of Homeland Security is unprecedented and a threat to our national security." Feinstein is doing what most of the coup-makers do all the time: point out the obvious without admitting any responsibility for causing the problem.
The "resistance" blames Trump for a lack of leadership in enforcing border security, yet they use their positions to block building a wall and every other possible solution to the problem. Meantime, they focus their attention on Trump's personal taxes, promoting legislation that nationalizes elections, weakens voter identification laws, requires
mandatory automatic voter registration, same-day voter registration, no-fault absentee balloting and early voting, as well as forcing taxpayer subsidization of political campaigns, and regulating political speech-all designed to foment a socialist takeover of America.
So the President is stuck between a wall and hard heads. Let us be mindful of Romans 12:21, "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good." Either we engage or be overcome. Even though there is no wall, our backs are against it.
