Schumer Leaves Door Open For Trump Reversal On DACA

Several weeks ago President Trump indicated that he would sign whatever immigration bill assisting the illegal children (young adults under DACA) Congress sends to him. He said they were to put it together and he would sign it. This caused a lot of angst among his supporters because it sounded like he had given away the store. The Democrats and the establishment Republicans could have put together a horrible bill and Trump, if he kept to his word, would sign it.

Democrats meanwhile, have been holding the budget hostage because of the DACA issue. The very Democrats who said they would never do such a thing when Republicans did it in 2013 (though Obamacare is a budget issue and DACA is not) and those very Democrats who were talking tough on immigration not so long ago (saying all the things they now say are horrible when Republicans say them) are trying to hold the budget hostage over DACA.

Chuck Schumer, the man whose face is what results when the foreskin is removed, has been allegedly negotiating on the budget but he tied DACA to any outcome. Chuck thinks it is his duty to make sure the illegal aliens covered under the unconstitutional Obama Executive Order are cared for and that their needs come above those of the American citizens. He figured the public would back him and his band of merry thieves should a shutdown occur.

On Friday an agreement could not be reached on the budget. More accurately, the continuing resolution. You see, the budget has been ready since September but there are no votes on it because people keep playing games. Since that is the case we have had about five CRs so far. If these cretins were required to vote on the budget AND ONLY the budget we could get that out of the way and then move on to other things like immigration reform.

Instead, Chuck Schumer held the budget hostage by pushing DACA into the equation. Schumer thinks he is in the majority because he basically said here are all the things we want and we will discuss what you want later. Republicans, obviously emboldened by Mr. Trump, stood their ground and said NO. They offered a number of things and then made the promise to vote on DACA as a clean bill. Democrats balked, nothing could be worked out and the government shut down. The Democrats tried calling this the Trump shutdown but their argument was negated when they claimed Trump had been silent during the past week. The Republicans were out in front and called it the #schumershutdown and that spread like wildfire.

Liberal pundits in the media wing of the Democrat party were showing old clips of Democrats (like Schumer) saying the opposite of what they are saying now and asked hard questions about why they shut down the government. Topping this off, Mr. Trump did not close parks and other areas that are open to the public (open space) like the petulant Obama did. People saw that Democrats were putting the needs of illegal aliens over the needs of American Citizens and they were not happy. It also stuck to Democrats that they placed illegals ahead of the men and women in our military.

I guess ole Schumer must have seen some polling that he did not like because he was running around like his ass was on fire and his head was catching to get a deal. He gave in to the original deal that he had declined not three days prior and a few other items (some Obamacare tax items) were thrown in to sweeten it for Republicans all for a promise to have the DACA issue wrapped up by February 8th. The government was shut down for three days. In reality it was a half of a regular workday by the time employees went to work to sign furlough papers and shut down their offices.

Schumer had even promised that he would put in 1.6 Billion Dollars toward the wall. His base went bat guano crazy and the illegals and their front groups were madder than all get out. Their trend of sell out Schumer must have hurt ole Chuck’s ego. He has since reneged on his promise of 1.6 billion dollars. He seems to think, as I stated, that he is in charge. What I see is a man who got his rear end handed to him as he got it from both sides and since he ended up so butt hurt he took his football and went home.

Here is what should happen going forward. The Turtle, Mitch McConnell, should exercise the nuclear option and bring up the budget for the entire year (working with the House of course) and force a vote on the budget. He can find whatever parliamentary tricks will allow him to do it with 51 votes. Once that is done he can Tell Schumer he promised (actually said he intended to) to have a vote on DACA so they can introduce legislation and have their vote after McConnell ensures his caucus will vote against it. Donald Trump, meantime, can threaten to veto any DACA immigration bill that comes to him and when Schumer complains about Trump changing his mind he can be reminded that he reneged on his 1.6 billion dollar pledge.

Schumer has left the door wide open for Donald Trump to veto or otherwise reject anything he wants.

We could actually have an immigration bill. It could find a way to re-vet the DACA folks here, get rid of those who are criminals (beyond the criminality of entering illegally), limit the program to only those who previously signed up, let them stay here on some special DACA card (has to be renewed every 3 years) but bar them from becoming citizens for 25 years, deny them any public welfare or other benefits and make them have continued monitoring so if they break the law they will be jailed and/or deported. Also add on to the bill that any other person found here who had not previously signed up for DACA will be deported. Tighten up our immigration laws to allow quicker deportation and mandatory use of e-verify and top that off with funding for the wall. One more provision that reduces the number of immigrants we will allow from other countries by the number of DACA vetted and issued guest cards each year until those on the roster are completely in the system and we have ourselves one fine bill.

Again, use whatever parliamentary procedures will allow them to pass it with 51 votes, make sure the House is on board and boom, we have immigration reform, funding for a wall and a muzzle on Democrats.

The question is, will Republicans get tough. They were pretty tough last week during the budget battle but will they really be tough? They need to meet with President Trump and develop a plan to run roughshod over the Democrats.

Lord knows Harry Reid was a low life weasel but he knew how to work the system to exact his will on the opposition. We need McConnell to read from that playbook…

A Glimmer Of Hope From McConnell?

Mitch McConnell addressed the looming debt ceiling and said there would be no government shutdown and that the ceiling would be raised. Anyone who reads this blog regularly (and I know all three of you) know how I feel about the debt ceiling. We need to stop raising it and start lowering the amount of debt we have by cutting spending.

It is as simple as that even though liberals and big government RINOs will tell you that it is not easy and there is too much to pay for. The only reason there is too much to pay for is because they keep spending too much.

If your pipes in the house break and you have sewage piling up you don’t go to the top of the house and keep raising the ceiling. If you do you just end up with more crap. The sensible solution is to stop the crap from piling up and then get rid of it as quickly as possible.

In Obama’s time in office the national debt has doubled from 9 TRILLION dollars to 18 TRILLION dollars. Obama has accumulated more debt than all other presidents COMBINED. What do we have to show for this? Nearly 100 million people no longer participating in the labor force and around 50 million people on food stamps. We have an entitlement society full of people encouraged to live off the government (read the taxpayer) as a way of life.

Democrats built that (Obama made it worse).

McConnell gave a glimmer of hope with the debt ceiling issue. He said that they would likely attach legislation they want to pass to the debt ceiling bill. This is an action I suggested in an earlier post.

Here is what McConnell had to say:

Mr. McConnell, Kentucky Republican, said on the CBS program “Face the Nation” on Sunday that Republicans may try to attach some of their priorities to the debate but won’t force another shutdown showdown as it has in the past. Washington Times

The issue I have is he already gave in by stating there would be no showdown. He will likely push something they all agree on, pass it and slap themselves on the back while telling us what a great job they did. In reality the spineless will fold.

I think McConnell and Boehner need to put out what they want and start NOW to tell the public that they are going to do it and if Democrats block it THEY will be responsible for the shutdown. If he has to, since this is a BUDGET item he can make it so only 51 votes are needed. Then he can pass it and force Obama to veto.

Then the shutdown will be on Obama’s head.

This is what I would like to see but I lack confidence that these two so called leaders can muster the testosterone needed to do it. They can’t sack up because they lack a ball sack.

Time For Boehner And McConnell To Redeem Themselves

Treasury Secretary Lew has informed Speaker John Boehner that the US will hit the debt ceiling on 16 March. Treasury would then be required to take extraordinary measures to keep government running and those measures would be exhausted by the final Quarter of the calendar year.

I am not a fan of raising the debt ceiling. I think that instead of raising the limit the amount we are spending should be reduced. The government is taking in record amounts of revenue from taxes but continues to spend more than it gets. Raising the ceiling would not (allegedly) involve new spending. Lew says that it would make sure that money is available to pay for things we have already obligated to. That just means we spent more than we had and now we need more to pay the bills.

This is the time for Boehner and McConnell to step up and redeem themselves over their poor performance regarding funding the DHS and Obama’s illegal executive action.

Boehner and McConnell should insist that getting rid of the illegal executive action (on immigration) by Obama is part of the deal. In fact, they should try to get everything they can as part of the deal. Democrats will balk and scream for a “clean” bill but they got a clean bill for DHS. Now it is time for them to step up.

The thing is these two spineless “leaders” will need to stand fast on their demands or the Democrats will own them once again. They need to be out forming the narrative NOW by telling people what they will do and that if Democrats do not go along they and ONLY THEY will be responsible for the government defaulting.

Put the onus on the Democrats and keep hammering them. Make it all about their unwillingness to compromise. Show them as the bad guys and associate all bad things that might come as being their fault.

I don’t want to see the ceiling raised. We keep adding to the mountain of debt we already have and it will not get better if they refuse to fix the problems that require them to spend more (ie out of control spending, unconstitutional programs, out of control welfare). If we can get a number of concessions for raising the ceiling then it will be worth it this time though if Boehner and McConnell had any guts it would not be necessary.

While I would like to see these two play hardball and ram this down the throats of the Democrats I am pretty sure they will end up looking like dumb and dumber when all is said and done.

It is likely they will raise the limit, give the Democrats everything they want, screw conservatives and the nation and end up telling us it was the best they could do and we should just sit back and take it.

These two could not lead a group of people out of a burning building so it is very unlikely they will actually do anything worthwhile on this issue.

Obama once said adding to the debt and burdening future generations with debt was unpatriotic. Obama and his Democrats, by that definition, are unpatriotic.

Unfortunately, a number of Republicans are unpatriotic as well.

One day we will be led by people who are not part of the establishment and who will get things under control.

Unless, of course, the current crop of morons kills the nation off before then…

Boehner And McConnell Are Ineffective Cowards

Give us control and we will stop Obama and his illegal orders on immigration. We will take the fight to him for you. We have the House but we need the Senate or we can’t do anything. Give us the Senate and things will be different.

Yes, the lip service John Boehner and Mitch McConnell gave us before the election was right on and they said all the right things. There were many of us who pushed for both of them to face a primary opponent to get rid of them. But folks like Ann Coulter (who I happen to love) said we can’t do that because getting control was most important and if we lost McConnell’s seat then we might not get the Senate and that is what we needed.

Well, we gave them the Senate and they are doing the same thing they did when they were in the minority. They are bending over and letting the Democrats have their way with them. The Republicans in the Senate are acting like they are in the minority by letting Reid and the Democrats run all over them and Boehner is caving to the Senate and giving them what they want.

But Big Dog, the Democrats are blocking the Senate with tactics and it is hard work.

Yes, I know the Democrats are doing all the very things they screamed and threw fits about when they were in the majority. They hated when Republicans did these things but they found ways around them. McConnell is not quite bright enough to do it the way Reid did.

So he will just bend over and take it like a jailhouse punk.

Here is what McConnell should have done. He should have changed the rules so that only 51 votes were needed to pass the legislation. Then it would pass and be sent to Obama who would have to sign it or veto it. If he vetoed it he AND HE ALONE would have been responsible for shutting down the DHS (which would not really shut down because they are mission essential). McConnell did not have the guts to do that even though Harry Reid did it and it was accepted by Democrats. They would have to accept it if McConnell did it and anyone who screamed could be reminded that they were warned that it would one day come back to bite them in their large asses.

Boehner could have slid his wretched self out of the bottom of a bourbon glass long enough to make it clear he would not change his position. He could have coached McConnell to use the Reid option and get it done. These two could have had a united front.

Instead they were both too busy worrying about what people might think of the process.

Screw how people feel. There is an out of control Executive who is ignoring the Constitution. He has become a tyrant and the supposed leaders of the Republicans in Congress are letting him get away with it.

It leads me to believe that they want this illegal action on immigration to go through. Yes, they say it is in the court but there is no guarantee the court will uphold the law. The tyrants in the black robes are as bad as the tyrant in the White House. They are all part of the downfall and they need to be stopped.

But Boehner and McConnell are not up to the job. They said they were. They begged us to give them the job. They promised they would do these things.

And in the end all we have are two ineffective cowards who are too busy applying Vasoline to do their jobs.

Obama will not stop here. He is already working on ways to use Executive Orders to raise taxes (first on corporations but it will not stop there). This will be a blatant violation of the Constitution but Boehner and McConnell have already shown they are not up to the task. They will not stop the tyrant Obama.

We will be taxed without representation. Does that sound familiar? It should. That is what led 3% of this nation to fight the Brits for Independence.

A hell of a lot more that 3% are fed up in this country and it is now quite obvious that Boehner and McConnell are impotent. We gave them a chance and they failed.

The only solution to the tyranny lies in the hands of the patriots.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security ~ from the US Declaration of Independence [emphasis added]

It is our birthright, it is our duty and it is our destiny to unshackle the bonds placed by an oppressive and tyrannical government and to form new one. Our Founders did just that and they did it over a lot less than what is going on now.

The time is coming because Obama and the rest of the lawbreakers have put us on a collision course. I pray to God that we avoid such a situation but Boehner and McConnell have shown us they are nothing more than different wings of the same bird and they do not have the interest of the American people at heart.

They are cowards who lack the ability to stand up for what is right. We need some real leadership to step forward or I fear this nation is headed for major unrest.

For now we are stuck with these two impotent twerps who have betrayed us. My friends, please do not donate to the Republican party. Screw them. Keep your money and do something useful with it. These pricks will just take you for a ride and dump you in the desert.

Starve the beast and the next time pundits tell you it is more important to gain control than to get rid of bad politicians remind them of these two and how ineffective they are even with the majority.

Dear John and Mitch, my contact form is on this page. Reach out if you want some pointers on how to man up

Democrats, you are not off the hook. You criminals backed the illegal action and you put party before country. In a just world you would hang for your treason. Fear not, if the world were just many Republicans would be swinging next to you.

McConnell Is Only Partly Correct

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (RINO-KY) is not on board with defunding Obamacare and he will help Democrats get it all the money it needs. He had a little chat on the Senate floor with fellow Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. McConnell said that the law would fail.

On that he is correct. The law is already failing and it will fail miserably. It has not hit mandated deadlines and parts of it have had to be delayed because those parts are hurting Obama’s friends, Obama does not want the problems before the next election AND they are not ready for implementation.

But McConnell is wrong in drawing the conclusion that because Obamacare will fail it will go away. He stated:

“I think it’s pretty safe to conclude: The things that can’t work don’t stick, don’t last. Because we are, after all, a representative Democracy, the people can complain and discuss and tell us how they feel.” The Hill

Social Security is not working and it has been around for decades. Medicare, same thing. The war on drugs, not working but we continue to spend billions of dollars on that war (while Obama arms drug cartels).

The war on poverty has cost us over 12 TRILLION dollars and it has been a failure. There are more people in poverty now then when the program started and there are more people on welfare. The war to end poverty has created more of it, has added trillions of dollars to our debt and has added millions of people to the welfare rolls.

With all of these negatives one can safely say that the war on poverty failed.

Yet our government continues to redistribute wealth to support the welfare state that resulted from the lost war on poverty.

Government programs do not go away. They cost more than advertised and then when they fail government says there is a problem that needs more money to solve and then throws more money at the problem IT created.

It is a vicious cycle that resembles being caught in a transporter loop.

McConnell can claim that the law has no chance of working and he is correct but to conclude that it will go away flies in the face of history and reality.

The only way to get rid of it is to do so now before millions of people get snared into it and depend on it.

When that happens we will have another failed welfare program that consumes more and more while producing nothing.

Regardless of what happens McConnell and the rest of the RINOs must be removed from office.

I know that the establishment Republicans are counting on winning the Senate in 2014. What happens if they don’t? I would rather never win the Senate if it will be in control of people like McConnell, McCain and Cornyn.

I won’t be voting in 2014 with the goal of gaining back the Senate. I will be working to have people vote these slugs out of office.
