Some facts about House bill before Senate— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) December 21, 2018
$5 billion would fund completion of top 10 border security priorities including (but not only) up to 215 miles of new & improved wall.
The $1.3 billion Democrats say they will support would be as little as only 19 miles of wall
This is what Democrats want to shut down the govt over. Not just a wall,but top 10 priorities of Comprehensive Border Security Improvement Plan.— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) December 21, 2018
The costs of dealing with the drugs (heroin & fentanyl) crossing the border is alone enough to justify far more than $5 billion.

Border security is national security, the first priority of government and the duty of the commander-in-chief. If Congress does not fund the barrier Trump must veto.

Illinois population drops by more than 45,000, per latest Census report https://t.co/s8O9CaVX0t— Illinois Watchdog (@ilwatchdog) December 19, 2018
Illinois had the largest population decline in the nation in 2018, the continuation of a years-long retreat from the state, according to figures from U.S. Census Bureau released Wednesday.
Census numbers show 114,154 people moved out of Illinois in the 12 months ending in July. In total, Illinois’ population shrank to 12,741,080, a total population loss of 45,116 from last year. This marks the fifth consecutive year of total population loss for the state and the largest drop in population in more than a decade....
As a result of the population loss, Illinois is on track to lose at least one member of Congress after the apportionment process in 2021. This, accompanied with fewer electoral votes in presidential elections, leaves Illinois with a diminished voice in federal matters.

The MSM tried to sell us a very different version of this story last week. https://t.co/vm1FbsGVHY— TheBlaze (@theblaze) December 19, 2018
Victor Davis Hanson: This Mueller investigation that we have is not in isolation. We had, remember, from the day Trump was elected we were told the election machines were flawed, we were going to sue. And then there was a group, remember we were told about the Electoral College, and we were told we had to overturn the electors. And then we went to the 25th Amendment that Trump was unbalanced. And that didn’t work. And then we went to the emoluments clause, he profited even though his businesses had lost a billion dollars. And then we’ve gone to Mueller. And so there’s a slow motion if you will, I don’t want to be too psychodramatic like MSNBC gets. But there is sort of a slow motion coup to overturn the elections.

(Mark) Rush and I were talking over dinner at the Red Hen, a farm-to-table restaurant that made headlines earlier this year for its unfortunate decision to refuse service to White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Rush struggled to reconcile the idea that it had been that long since he sat in a theater and laughed, so he asked the waiter, hoping that would prompt him to remember a recent movie he found uproariously funny. Rush also asked the manager, and finally, the three young sous-chefs in the kitchen.
He said: "Same answers: 'Blazing Saddles,' 'Caddyshack.' The most recent ones they said were 'Talladega Nights,' 'Tropic Thunder' and 'The Hangover.' Even the last three are over 10 years old."
He added: "We don't laugh together anymore, and that's not good. One of the great attributes of a good comedy is that it can take us away from the day-to-day dramas of life but can also make us laugh at those same day-to-day dramas from a different perspective." ...
