Democrats & Schumer Blink … End Government Shutdown … Trump & GOP Victorious


In the game of political chicken, Democrats blinked first and voted to end the government shutdown. Yes, this was a win for President Trump and the Republican party. Democrats reading the tea leaves and the polls knew that they were overwhelming on the wrong side of shutting a government down for DACA. Even the New York Times admits the Democrats blinked. Democrats overplayed their hand and had to cave. The Democrats were prioritizing illegal aliens over the U.S. military. Even the most insane in the Democrat party knew that was a losing battle ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

Ingraham: Trump shuts down the Democrats

The Senate on Monday was on track to vote to reopen the federal government, after Senate Democrats agreed to let the bill through even though it doesn’t include immigration language they are seeking.

Democrats on Friday opposed a bill to fund the government through Feb. 16 because it didn’t include language to help the Dreamers, that group of immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children.

But Democrats changed their mind on Monday, after getting assurances from Republicans that the Senate would work on immigration next as long as the government was reopened, and hold votes soon. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said that was enough to get Democrats to support the spending bill.

“We will vote today to reopen the government to continue negotiating a global agreement,” Schumer said.

The Far-Left is livid at Democrat Minority Leader Schumer after making the deal to reopen the government after just 3 days. They are calling him a sell-out. Thus it went from the #ShumerShutdown to the #SchumerSellout. Is the Democrat party ready for that civil war they are about to have come 2020?

Liberal activists are furious with Democratic senators after most of them agreed to reopen the federal government without a firm path to shielding young immigrants from deportation.

As the third day of the shutdown dawned, liberal advocates and immigration groups fired off a joint statement blasting as “unacceptable” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s offer merely to hold a vote on immigration — with no promises for action from the House or White House — in exchange for Democratic votes to reopen the government. But three hours later, Democratic senators agreed to just those terms — sparking anger on the left.

But activist groups that have provided his caucus crucial firepower during fights against GOP health care and tax bills were not buying that explanation.

Murshed Zaheed, political director of the liberal group CREDO Action, said Democrats’ decision shows Schumer’s willingness to betray progressives.

“Call it the #SchumerSellout,” he said in an interview. “Hashtagged.”

From Yahoo News comes, ‘Dreamers’ disappointed that Congress deferred DACA deal. Hey dreamers, what do you think the “D” in DACA actually stands for?

Government Shuts Down as Democrats Block Continuation … CNN Poll Says DACA Not Worth the Shutdown


As the U.S. government shut down last night, actually only those jobs and individuals with non-essential functions. An interesting thing happened, many are actually holding Democrats responsible. A CNN poll states that 56% believe that DACA not worth a shutdown of the government, while just 34% choose DACA over a shutdown. The Democrats are the only ones who chose illegal aliens over American citizens and the brave men and women of our Armed Forces. Democrats break narrowly in favor of DACA as 49% say it’s more important vs. 42% who say avoiding a shutdown is the priority. However, majorities of both Republicans (75%) and independents (57%) say avoiding a shutdown is more important. It is easy to put forth a poll that says, who is to blame. Of course the LEFT and Never-Trumpers will always blame the Republicans and Trump. However, to ask the question as to was DACA worth shutting the government down is telling.

Democrats are going to have a hard time in 2018 telling the American people they first, did not want them to keep more of their own money with regards to Trump tax cut and now, that illegals are more important than American citizens.

Cnn poll DACA shutdown

With hours to go before a midnight deadline for Congress to fund the government or shut it down, most Americans say avoiding a shutdown is more important than passing a bill to maintain the program allowing people brought to the US illegally as children to stay, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS.

But Democrats taking a hard line on legislation connecting government funding to the popular program known as DACA appear to have the backing of their constituents, and more overall say President Donald Trump or the Republicans in Congress would be responsible for a shutdown if one happens.

Overall, about half of Americans say they would blame either Trump (21%) or his Republican counterparts in Congress (26%) should Congress fail to fund the government by the midnight Friday deadline. About a third, 31%, say they would hold the Democrats in Congress responsible, and another 10% say they’d blame all three groups. Among Republicans, 62% would blame the Democrats in Congress, while 43% of Democrats would blame Republicans on Capitol Hill and 29% would blame Trump.

Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Calls Immigration Negotiations … ‘Five white guys’ leading DACA talks should open a ‘hamburger stand’ (VIDEO)


Yesterday, Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi complained that immigration negotiations are being led by “five white guys.” Guess who was one of the 5 white guys she made this disparaging comment about? Why her own No. 2, Democrat Minority Whip Steny Hoyer. AMAZING. Does Pelosi even know that some of those white guys are her own leadership?  Steny Hoyer, called the Californian Democrat’s comments ‘offensive.’ Gee, you think? The media and Democrats think Trump is unfit for office? They might want to take Pelosi in for observation. You could call these folks who came up with a lame immigration deal useless, but I doubt whether their color has anything to do with it.

Via The Politico:

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi complained Thursday that immigration negotiations are being led by “five white guys” — and was quickly rebuked by her No. 2, Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, himself one of those white guys involved in the talks.

“The five white guys I call them, you know,” Pelosi said at her weekly news conference. “Are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what?” Pelosi said, complaining that minority members of Congress were not involved in deciding the fate of Dreamers.

Pelosi’s quip was a reference to the hamburger chain Five Guys and the five white men leading the immigration negotiations. In addition to Hoyer, they include Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas), Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

The group of House and Senate leaders held a meeting on immigration earlier this week.

President Trump Rescinds DACA that was Effectuated under the Obama Administration Unconstitutionally … President Gives Congress 6 Months to Do Thier Job


Yesterday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions did his job and correctly rescinded the DACA program. No matter how you feel about the DACA program and so called “Dreamers,” DACA was was Unconstitutional. The United States is a country of laws and if we have presidents who flaunt the Constitution, as Barack Obama did, what is the point. If Trump did not end DACA, it would have been in the courts, as the executive branch does not have the right to bypass the legislative branch and make laws. Obama knew this, and even said so when president, then turned around and created DACA. Democrats and the LEFT can try and play politics with this, as they usually do, but in reality, Trump did the smart thing. Trump eliminated an Unconstitutional program and forwarded it to the U.S. Congress where such laws are supposed to be created. In is now on Congress to do their job.

This policy was implemented unilaterally to great controversy and legal concern after Congress rejected legislative proposals to extend similar benefits on numerous occasions to this same group of illegal aliens.

In other words, the executive branch, through DACA, deliberately sought to achieve what the legislative branch specifically refused to authorize on multiple occasions. Such an open-ended circumvention of immigration laws was an unconstitutional exercise of authority by the Executive Branch.

As the Attorney General, it is my duty to ensure that the laws of the United States are enforced and that the Constitutional order is upheld.

Via FOX News:

In June of 2012, President Obama bypassed Congress to give work permits, social security numbers, and federal benefits to approximately 800,000 illegal immigrants currently between the ages of 15 and 36.  The typical recipients of this executive amnesty, known as DACA, are in their twenties.  Legislation offering these same benefits had been introduced in Congress on numerous occasions and rejected each time.

In referencing the idea of creating new immigration rules unilaterally, President Obama admitted that “I can’t just do these things by myself” – and yet that is exactly what he did, making an end-run around Congress and violating the core tenets that sustain our Republic.

Officials from 10 States are suing over the program, requiring my Administration to make a decision regarding its legality. The Attorney General of the United States, the Attorneys General of many states, and virtually all other top legal experts have advised that the program is unlawful and unconstitutional and cannot be successfully defended in court.

There can be no path to principled immigration reform if the executive branch is able to rewrite or nullify federal laws at will.

The temporary implementation of DACA by the Obama Administration, after Congress repeatedly rejected this amnesty-first approach, also helped spur a humanitarian crisis – the massive surge of unaccompanied minors from Central America including, in some cases, young people who would become members of violent gangs throughout our country, such as MS-13.

Only by the reliable enforcement of immigration law can we produce safe communities, a robust middle class, and economic fairness for all Americans.

Therefore, in the best interests of our country, and in keeping with the obligations of my office, the Department of Homeland Security will begin an orderly transition and wind-down of DACA, one that provides minimum disruption.  While new applications for work permits will not be accepted, all existing work permits will be honored until their date of expiration up to two full years from today.  Furthermore, applications already in the pipeline will be processed, as will renewal applications for those facing near-term expiration.  This is a gradual process, not a sudden phase out.  Permits will not begin to expire for another six months, and will remain active for up to 24 months.  Thus, in effect, I am not going to just cut DACA off, but rather provide a window of opportunity for Congress to finally act.

Making America Great Again … Nationwide ICE Sweep Arrests MS-13 Gang Members & Some DREAMers
