it's a Schumer Shutdown.
hail to the chief and his ability to ridicule the democrats right back
....this is just what it will take, folks.
From that last link, above, from a post @ The Hill:
"Never before in American history has a major political party put the interests of lawbreaking foreign nationals ahead of the interests of law abiding Americans. Yet that is exactly what the Democrats have done in holding the government hostage to extract special favors for illegal immigrants."
and when you put this perspective alongside the position of Chuck Schumer only a few years back...
“[Former House] Speaker [John] Boehner comes in and he says, basically, it’s sorta like this. Someone goes into your house, takes your wife and children hostage, and then says ‘Let’s negotiate over the price of your house.’ You know, we could do the same thing on immigration. We believe strongly in immigration reform. We could say, ‘We’re shutting down the government, we’re not gonna raise the debt ceiling, until you pass immigration reform.’ It would be governmental chaos.”
and from Nancy Pelosi, same time, same batty channel:
“I join the American people in their disgust in what happened in terms of the shutdown of government. That’s an unthinkable tactic to use in a political debate.”
[thank you, Washington Examiner for this closer examination.]
But let's be clear -- Republicans, in 2013, had ALL AMERICAN citizens best interests at heart. Obamacare, at only three years young, was already unraveling, proving to be a strain on Americans; the republicans were prepared to stand up for ALL Americans -- even if it meant holding the government hostage for sixteen days -- in an effort to repair Obamacare's damage against one-sixth of the nation's economy, the nation's healthcare system. Of course, it was a big fail.
Just as the Schumer Shutdown has proven to be a big fail, just moments ago.
More from the Tommy Hicks Jr. post, as opinion contributor at The Hill:
"They call Americans 'deplorables' and illegal immigrants 'Dreamers.' That tells you everything you need to know about the Democrats’ upside-down world view."
This says everything; if the republicans don't steal this point and drive it home, at every opportunity to speak from here on out, they will be missing a point of light, as they begin to negotiate a new immigration bill to protect DACA "kids."
What America needs to do is build a better wall -- literally and figuratively.
What America needs to do is simply follow the existing IMMIGRATION law and policy.
What America needs to do is protect AMERICA'S best interests and AMERICANS, neither being deplorable, first and foremost.
America does have a heart....it explains why so many people wish to come to America in the first place.
So what is this all about?
---- Genevieve Woods, The Heritage Foundation, has the answer:
That’s why Democrats are willing to shut down government. The reality is they don’t really want a deal on immigration. They talk about addressing the needs of the DACA population, but they have no time to address the other side of the immigration issue, border security and enforcement.
Here’s the deal. Democrats are fearful that President [Donald] Trump and Republicans could go into the midterm elections with both victories on tax cuts and immigration reform. So at the end of the day, that’s what all of this is about. It’s an election year, and that means politics, not people, are their priority.
Democrats want the votes and a steady stream of democrats flowing into America, unchecked and UNassimilated, not a problem, undoubtedly.
And more from Genevieve, as to "Why Amnesty Should Not be a Part of Any Deal..." is posted HERE.
One last thing to read, from The Patriot Post's Thomas Gallatin, time to shut Schumer down....
Happy Anniversary; this girl is pretty sure Trump is here to stay for another three years, folks (primarily targeting dem folks, the leftists and the never Trumpers). This win characterizes the results of a President Trump on offense; for another good example, see Tom Brady and the Patriots. tee hee (what a game, that was, what a game)
Anywho, deal with it. And more than that, try to ENJOY it, you freaking idiots!
America is booming with tax reforms (for all except maybe California corporations...thank you "Victory Girls" blog); America is becoming less regulated; America is standing up for a sanctity for life; America is slowly returning healthcare to the free market; America is improving the lives of Americans..... hello?!
Isn't this what ALL Americans really want?
It's what I want; it's what I want for ALL AMERICANS.
The thing is -- this is a good day for America.
Make it a Good Day, G
