FAKE NEWS-Family Separation Political Fallacy

Obama Policies Now Condemned by the Left as a Trump Failure!

24,000 Detained by Obama, 12,000 by Trump

Today, 85% of Separated Children are UNACCOMPANIED BY PARENTS!

Dention of immigrant children - 2014 and 2018

“Stupid is as Stupid Does”!

The Left creates a problem, then blames the Republicans, especially President Trump, for not fixing the problem!  Then, the Left’s media covers “Trump’s failures” wall-to-wall, and many Sheeples believe the rotten media without even educating themselves with the truth!  If you don’t like Fake News, stop watching the mainstream media, MSNBC and CNN, then do your own research! 

Ignorance is NOT BLISS, it is a road to the Death of Liberty!

The current child separation statutory and Flores ruling of the 9th Circuit court has its roots back to the Clinton administration.  The purpose by the left was to create a false emotional issue and visual of children being “ripped” from the arms of their parents.  Yes, the Left purposely created the child separation policy so they could whip up outrage against the policy and then allow families to come in to the country illegally without detention.  Feel smart now?  Open Borders is the Goal, the Children are merely pawns of the Left!

Why Now?

  • One, the mid-term elections are a mere 4 months away and the Left has no winning policies.
  • Two, the Justice Department IG report is damning to the Left, its hold over the DOJ and the FBI, and especially to HRC’s “exoneration” by Comey and his biased cronies.
  • The Trump economy is going gang busters and no matter how loony Nancy Pelosi gets with her “crumbs” and other insane rants the Left has no answer to the lowest unemployment for Blacks and Hispanics in history.  

The Left is looking down the barrel of another embarrassing election loss and this one during a mid-term election that should be easy for them!  The Left and its media lapdogs cannot win without a straw issue.  IF the American people educate themselves, the Left will lose this separation issue and the Left will be blamed as they should be!  Especially since the Left leader in the Senate said he will NOT support legislation to solve the child separation, or any other immigration legislation! 

This should be enough for any thinking person to see that the Left needs issues, not solutions!

Think about your own children.  Illegals entering this country by definition are not screened for communicable diseases.  Illegal children have not received the same vaccines that your children have but are in the same classrooms with your children!  Communicable diseases that were “conquered” by this country are now on the rise, including tuberculosis!

US Now A Lawless Nation-Cure Step One, Fire Sessions and Rosenstein

Session’s Betrayal Must Be Ended Now

See the source image

Trump must fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein NOW as the first step to end the Mueller investigation.  Will the media, the left and the RINOs go nuts?  ABSOLUTELY.  But, Trump has to change the momentum of this pending Constitutional Crisis by ending Mueller’s open-ended investigation of “Russian Collusion”.  Will this firing impact the 2018 Mid-Term Elections?  Maybe.  Depends on whether the RINOs rally around Trump.  If they do, the Trump base will turn out and support the RINOs for supporting Trump.  If the Sessions-Rosenstein-Mueller fiasco continues, the Trump Base will not show up and support RINOs in the 2018 Mid-Terms.  

Sessions Knows He Is Killing the Trump Administration

See the source image

If Sessions had an ounce of integrity, he would fire Rosenstein today then Resign himself!  Sessions blindsided the President by recusing himself from “any matters regarding the Russian Collusion investigation and the Trump candidacy, right after he was confirmed as Trump’s Attorney General.  Sessions claimed that the “ethics” advisors inside of the Department of Justice advised him to recuse himself to avoid a conflict of interest!  REALLY!!!  These are the same people trying to remove President Trump from Office!  Why didn’t these same “ethics professionals” tell Rosenstein and Mueller that they both are conflicted and should recuse themselves?  After all, Rosenstein signed the 3rd extension of the Carter Page FISA Warrant to spy on Trump!  Mueller interviewed with Trump to lead the FBI, is a close personal friend of fired FBI chief James Comey, and has tons of conflicts with Hillary Clinton!  

The only conclusion one can reach is that Jeff Sessions does not care if he kills the Trump agenda by allowing this open-ended Mueller Witch Hunt to continue.  So, all of the times when Sessions stumped for Trump and his agenda were outright lies.  You may hold RINOs like McConnell, McCain, Ryan, and others, and the Never-Trumpers who constantly rail against Trump, in utter contempt, but consider who has hurt Trump the most, these RINOs or Sessions! 

Sessions is the epitome of a NEVER-TRUMPER with the added bonus that he controls the Department of Justice, the nation’s most powerful law enforcement agency, and the FBI, the nation’s most powerful investigative agency.  Sessions has the power to insure that Rosenstein and Mueller can continue their coup d’état against the Trump Administration!  

What if Trump Fires Sessions and Rosenstein?

The left and its media will go insane if Trump fires Sessions and Rosenstein.  The Republican leadership in the House and Senate will go insane as well as the Never-Trumpers.  The media will attempt to whip up immediate impeachment calls and try to drive the narrative away from the Trump agenda and his ongoing agenda.  In short, Trump will be besieged from all sides!

SO What!

Trump can either take on this extra-constitutional onslaught by Sessions-Rosenstein-Mueller head-on or die a slow death of a thousand cuts from innuendo from the Mueller investigation and a constant and growing investigation of everything Trump by HIS OWN DOJ AND FBI!  

The Trump Base must rally around Trump and fight back any way they can if Trump takes on Sessions-Rosenstein-Mueller!  IF we don’t, it is our own fault when the Democrats and the allied Never-Trumpers and RINOs remove Trump from office and KILL TRUMP’S PROMISES TO MAKE YOUR LIVES BETTER.  

The Trump Base will have to rally around Republican candidates in the Mid-Term elections, (in some cases we will have to hold our noses), and make sure Republicans hold the House and the Senate.  The Trump Base will have to take on the Media as directly as they can and tamp down the firestorm the media will create following the firings.  You will have to vote for Ryan and the RINOs in the House and Senate who will publicly bad-mouth Trump over these firings.  We must hold both the House and Senate or the Democrats will move to impeach Trump following the Mid-Terms.   The Democrats are using the Mueller Investigation to provide them with “proof” they can use to impeach Trump!  

We are fighting a real Coup d’état and it will be up to us to take back our nation and ensure that our nation survives this progressive-left attempt to complete Obama’s Fundamental Transformation of our Great Nation.

Swamp V Trump-$1.3 Trillion Spending-No Wall

Who Lost In This Latest Budget Fight?

Elected Officials View of Your Money!

First of all, for those who are wringing your hands and saying that Trump betrayed his campaign promises and sold out to the swamp and the Washington elites, man-up (or woman-up)!

In 14 months, do you really think that one man can completely change the power broker controlled Washington Swamp?  The House and the Senate are “controlled” by “Republicans”, NOT TRUMP AGENDA SUPPORTERS!  

Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are deeply entrenched members of the Washington Elites as are the Republican members of both houses and are absolutely aligned against Trump’s border security agenda and his immigration policies.  They are aligned against his America-First trade policies that will put America back onto somewhat of a level trade playing field with China, The European Union and South Korea.  They totally support the Mueller investigation of Trump as a way of hobbling him and keeping him in check with the threat of prosecution.  Finally, they know that he needs to keep control of the House and Senate in the 2018 Mid-Term elections if he does not want to face a Democrat Impeachment process and an even more obstructionist legislative body! 

Could any of you stood up any better against the Washington Establishment than Trump has for the past 14 months?  I think not!

See the source image

Pundits Panic!  Good Grief.  For the third time, even Rush Limbaugh is all wobbly wondering, and even egging on his listeners, if Trump “caving” to this $1.3T spending budget buster will be the end to Trump’s loyal base!  The first time Limbaugh got all wobbly was when Trump brought in a bi-partisan group to discuss immigration and the second when Trump once again brought in a bi-partisan group to discuss gun-control.  Limbaugh’s immediate reaction to both was that Trump had just alienated his base and it is all over.  Wow, talk about a lack of faith and a total lack of loyalty!

Did y’all think the swamp was going to roll over and embrace the Trump and his policies that are hell-bent on taking away their power and restoring the power to the people?  Did you think that Ryan, McConnell, Pelosi, and Schumer were going to play fair and not set land mines smack dab in the middle of Trump’s path?  Did you think that the Washington Elite would give Trump a victory on the Wall, tightening border security, Immigration Reform, Visa Reform, and so on?  These are Trump’s policies, not the policies embraced by the Washington Elites made up of Republicans and Democrats.  

Why did Ryan and McConnell support the Trump Tax Cuts?  Simple.  The 2018 Mid-Terms are right around the corner and these two jerks have not had a legislative victory in years.  They needed a win to run on and tax cuts were the wagon they hitched their fortunes to.  They didn’t care if Trump got most of the glory but they knew that a good economy is hard for the Democrats to run against.  Giving into Trump’s other Agenda items, especially immigration related issues, would be a win for Trump and a loss for Ryan and McConnell’s big buck backers.   They are pathetic and should never have been elected, ever!

Trump’s Win and Loss

Trump’s #1 priority is rebuilding the military and you would think that it would be the #1 priority of all patriots.  Not so fast.  It was Congress, including the Republicans that agreed to Sequestration that emasculated our military and degraded our military capabilities to early 20th century levels.  Trump is facing possible conflicts in North Korea, Iran, and Syria and has to have a show of strength to stave off China and Russia.  The military build-up was the perfect carrot with which to trap Trump into agreeing to this spending and policy nightmare.  The military funding was a win for the President.

Trump temporarily lost his drive to defund sanctuary cities/States; funding for his wall; beefing up border security; ending chain migration; ending the Visa Lottery; and getting control of spending and re-establishing a sane budgeting process.  All of these issues are firmly opposed by big business, big donors, and their lobbyists up and down K Street in DC.  He also lost the psychological war against the idiotic Mueller Russian Collusion Probe as this deal will be perceived on the Left as a weakening of President Trump.

Trump Veto?  The President could have vetoed this insane bill but what were the trade-offs?  Congress had already left DC for another 2 week vacation!  So, if Trump had vetoed the bill, and triggered a shut-down, it would have been at least a week before he could drag them back into the swamp!  Even when they came back, it would have taken days if not weeks to get some kind of agreement to fund the government.  This accentuates the trap Ryan and McConnell set for Trump by not giving him, nor their members, any time to debate and make changes to this bill.   In the interim, our men and women in the military would not be paid and most of them are living pay-check to pay-check!  Other government employees would be furloughed and would not be paid as well.  But the political push-back against Trump would be hard for him to fight as he would be standing alone against Congress and the media while his precious military would not be receiving their pay while risking their lives for even the traitors in Congress!

Trump needs your support now more than ever!  He is still fighting for you, are you still fighting for and supporting Trump?

 

See the source image

Who Else Lost?

 Ryan and McConnell and the Republican Elites seriously damaged their chances to keep the house and increase their seats in the Senate in the 2018 Mid-Terms.  These idiots actually thought they could run against the Trump Agenda and win in the upcoming Mid-Terms.  Their own egos and that of their donors think that running away from, and actually opposing, the Trump Agenda is a winning hand.  Even a Democrat beat a Republican in Pennsylvania a couple of weeks ago by RUNNING ON THE TRUMP AGENDA, while the Republican was “Trump Squishy”.  Ryan and McConnell think that Trump’s popularity did not help this feckless Republican candidate even though he campaigned for this candidate.  Without the Trump base, Ryan and McConnell will both become minority leaders in 2019!  They deserve it, WE DON’T!

The taxpayers and Trump supporters were also big losers in this deal.  They killed funding for the Wall by stipulating that Trump could not spend the money on any wall that was made of concrete!  Barbed wire is probably OK.  Budget deficits will continue to swell and restoring a sane budget process seems to be even more of a pipe dream!  

What Are the Risks to Abandoning Trump

Well, if you like Obama and Clinton then go for it and abandon Trump.  If the Democrats take back the Senate and the House, Trump, and us, are toast!  The Hard Left, without any real opposition from the Republican RINOs, will impeach Trump with any trumped-up charge they can create.  Pelosi and Schumer will rise to lead both houses and Trump, and us, will be stymied at every turn!  Trump may actually win in 2020 but I would not blame him if he decides not to run if the Ryan/McConnell madness leads to Democrat control of Congress in 2018. 

TRUMP DOES NOT NEED THIS HEADACHE (SERVING AS PRESIDENT), BUT, WE NEED TRUMP TO BE OUR PRESIDENT!

Democrats-A Party Without A Cause In 2018

Illegal Immigration Is the “Salvation” for Democrats in 2018/2020, Really!

See the source image

There is no doubt that the Democrat Party has locked itself in as an “Identity Party” by polarizing various target groups such as women, LGBT, Blacks, non-Christians, and Hispanics, and anyone else they can turn into victims.  In doing so, the only way to herd their flock into lockstep is to make sure that the economy is mediocre or bad so many of their flock are seemingly disenfranchised, that their flock groups feel threatened by the evil conservatives who are trying to return them to slavery, economic or social bondage.  The toughest task the Democrat herders face is to insure that one or more of their groups are not at odds with other group(s).  

During the Obama years of economic stagnation and the demise of opportunity and economic and social advancement, the Democrat groups pretty much towed the Democrat progressive line and kept their hands out for government subsidies to seemingly make up for their lack of opportunity caused by anyone else but themselves and their wonderful Democrat/Progressive masters. 

But!  Donald Trump stormed onto the scene with a message of economic hope, true socio-economic opportunity, and a clear emphasis on the middle class regardless of sex, sexual orientation, religion, or race.  He even challenged Black voters, “What the Hell do you have to lose?”  Trump cracked the once solid Democrat identity politics herd by introducing the chance for a better life regardless of which herd group you had been corralled into by the Democrats.  Further, Trump’s message of safety, strength, and pride lifted many out of despair that had heretofore not participated in the political process of voting.  Even the once solid Democrat stronghold of Union membership shifted from the Democrat herd to Trump with Trump garnering 42% of the union vote!

But, where does illegal immigration fit into this discussion and specifically to the 2018 mid-terms and the 2020 Presidential race?

The Coastal Democrat/Progressives have tripled down on illegal immigration and illegal immigrants living in the US in the past 18 months.  Sanctuary States and Cities have become the norm for the left and right coasts to the exclusion and detriment of the legal residents of those states.  Those same states have tripled down on socialist, high taxation, and welfare state, policies that have created a degree of homelessness never seen before and the death of their middle class that cannot survive the high taxation, low employment opportunity, and unrealistic housing costs.  They are substituting their once strong citizen middle class with illegal aliens.

California is leading the legal battles against the Trump Administration and are outright defying Federal Laws on immigration and immigration enforcement.  The California Governor and his administration have passed laws in direct conflict with US Immigration law and the US Constitution.  Recently, the Mayor of Oakland, a prior member of the Governor’s staff, warned illegal immigrants that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would be arresting illegal immigrants who had committed crimes and were subject to deportation.  This warning allowed over 800 ICE targeted illegal criminal aliens to avoid capture and deportation and to remain in the Bay Area to prey on local, legal and illegal members of the community.

So, by promoting Sanctuary States, Cities, and Counties, the Democrat Party has decided to place the fate of illegal aliens, including criminal illegal aliens, at the forefront of their party to the exclusion of their prior target groups such as women, LGBT, Blacks, non-Christians, legal Hispanics and victims in general.  47% of likely voters in these states oppose their State’s sanctuary designation!  The safety of all women, LGBT, Blacks, non-Christians, and legal Hispanics are put at risk by these policies.  The coastal State’s spending on supporting illegals is robbing their citizens of funds, while being the highest taxes States in the US, to improve their communities while creating a homelessness problem in once beautiful cities is a blight unlike the ghettos in third world countries.

See the source image  

Impact On Other Democrat Party Identity Groups

Prioritizing and promoting an influx of illegal immigration into a job market drives down wages for legal residents, especially for Blacks and Hispanics.  This policy also increases the burden on local schools and drives down the quality of education and the safety for legal students.  Welfare services are likewise stretched and draw down on the State and local governments resources.  Coddling illegal criminal aliens and preventing them from being deported puts all of the State’s residents at risk and the Democrat target identity groups are not immune from these risks, in fact, the poorer Black and Hispanic families are often the target of these criminals.

Just to be clear on how great a risk criminal illegal aliens are, consider the following.  Illegal aliens, criminal and non-criminal, make up only 3.7% of the total US population But, they have been charged with and/or convicted of 13.6% of the total crimes committed in the entire US;  responsible for 12% of the murders, 20% of kidnappings, 16% of all drug dealing, and thousands who have been convicted of sex crimes and not yet deported.  

So, how are the Democrats going to use Illegal immigration as their flagship issue in 2018/2020 when this element of our population:

  • Drives down wages for Democrat leaning Blacks.
  • Drives down wages for Democrat leaning legal Hispanics.
  • Robs this nation and their constituents of a net $115 Billion dollars per year in government services provided to support the illegal alien community.
  • Detracts from equality issues for women,  Blacks, Hispanics, the LGBT community, Muslims and other Democrat victims.
  • Robs inner cities of valuable funding that is siphoned off to support illegal aliens rather than being allocated to community development and safety.
  •  Diverts law enforcement resources an decreases the safety of its female,  Blacks, Hispanics, the LGBT community, and Muslims. 

I posit that the Democrat strategy to promote the causes for illegal aliens is a big loser for the Democrat/Progressive chances in 2018/2020!

Republicans in 2018 can only defeat themselves which is not out of the realm of possibility.  If they would adhere to Trump and his agenda, they could pick up 8 more Senate seats and hold the House.  The Republican majority in the Senate needs to start acting like a party in power by confirming all of Trump’s appointees and paring down to a 51 vote majority rule to pass the House bills that are stuck in the do-nothing Senate!  They have Trump’s regulation and tax reform economy to fill their sails into a victorious Mid-Term!  By November, Trump’s tariff/renegotiated trade agreements will add even more jobs to the economy and entice even more investment in the US.  

If the House and the Senate Republicans do stick by Trump’s guns, they will benefit from a higher percentage of the Black, legal Hispanic, and women’s vote.  Why do I say this?  In 2016, Trump already had chipped away at these normally strong Democrat strongholds.  The following voting blocks are where Trump can help the Republicans who are up for re-election.

  • LGBTTrump took 14% of their vote in 2016.  Since then, with the mass shootings, many in the LGBT community have become gun owners and many have joined the NRA.  Safety is a key issue for this group along with jobs and equal opportunity protections.  Trump is proving to more of this community that he does not represent a threat to their way of life but has proven that he can be good for them by providing economic, political and personal security.
  • Blacks: Trump took 8% of the Black vote in 2016.  Since then, his economic policies have driven Black unemployment down to historic lows.  His outreach through HUD and HHS are improving inner city and rural Black community’s quality of life.  He is restoring life to failed cities like Detroit by bringing back entire industries.  Once he gets Congress to act on a comprehensive Education program via Betsy DeVos, Blacks will finally realize their dream for their children through school choice.  Republicans can campaign on these Black community achievements and garner more of this demographics vote than they could imagine.  In 2020. Trump could get close to 20% of the Black vote for his 2nd term re-election!
  • Legal Hispanics:   Trump took almost 30% of the Hispanic vote in 2016.  Trump’s 4 pillar immigration/DACA proposal and his pushing for a DACA solution has won over many of the legal Hispanic voters.   Trump’s economic message and actions have soared employment levels for Hispanics and his SBA programs have swelled the ranks of new Hispanic small businesses.  Trump’s Christian message also resonates with many in the Hispanic community. Republicans need to campaign on Trump’s successes for the Hispanic community and stay behind Trump until the mid-term elections.  If the Republicans in Congress appear to be fighting Trump on immigration reform and border security or his economic programs, they could risk not getting a high percentage of the Hispanic vote.  I predict that in 2020 Trump will 40-45% of the Hispanic vote.
  • Women:   Trump took 41% of the total female vote, 47% of the married women, and 33% of the non-married women in 2016.  Democrats bet their 2018 chances on the #MeToo movement that is turning out to be a nightmare for themselves and their Hollywood and main stream media lackeys!  They will keep dredging up stories about Trump but the economy will trump #MeToo as it applies to Trump in 2020.  Economic and physical security mean a great deal to women voters.  If Trump can fend off North Korea, Iran, Syria and Russia and stalemate any threat from them, this will add to his side of the ledger.  The Democrats have no real economic, physical security or foreign policy message at all.  Obama/Clinton foreign policy is proving to be even more feckless every day.  Republican campaigners need to stay on the Trump message of strength, economic security, physical safety, and foreign policy security and they will garner a majority of the female vote.  Wouldn’t wait for Jennifer Lawrence nor Ashley Judd but I would question myself if they voted for me!

The Democrats have not learned that you cannot create pockets of identity voters and expect them to vote against their own interests, economic, safety, and quality of life.  You can’t prop non-citizens against citizens and expect your pockets of identity voters to stick with you!  Carvell reminded us that it is the Economy Stupid.  He could have said It Is My Self Interest Stupid!

DC Now on Trump-Time! And They Hate IT!

Overworked Congress!  NOT

See the source imageTypical Senate Floor Scene Where Nothing is Happening!

President Trump is teaching Congress and this nation that we better learn to Walk-And-Chew-Gum at the same time or we will perish as a nation.  Immigration Reform, Infrastructure, Opioid Crisis, School Safety, Welfare Reform, Fair Trade Restructuring, VA Reform, Healthcare Reform, Korean Nuclear Crisis, Syrian War, Iranian Nuclear Program, Middle East Peace, Afghan War, Stabilizing Iraq, Crushing ISIS, the War on Terror,  are all on TRUMP’S FRONT BURNER!  All this while Mueller, two committees in the Senate and two in the House are investigating Trump, his administration and his family for any possible wrong doing they can find using “Russian Collusion” as their cover…

Congress however, has trouble tackling even one of these at a time!

Last week was a perfect example.  Following the school shooting in Florida, Trump held a series of meetings with school children, their parents, law enforcement officials and elected officials to discuss the tragedy and preventative solutions.   A day after one of Trump’s summits when he called for Congress to act, Mitch the Turtle McConnell, announced that the Senate could not possible take up school safety as they had to concentrate on BANKING next week.  Seriously, kids are being killed and you are worried about the FDIC!

 This nation is suffering from a chronic case of DEFERRED MAINTENANCE.  There is not one single thing I can think of that works the way it should in government at all levels. 

  • The FBI ignores a tips that could have saved 17 people in the Florida shootings; Broward County adopted the “Promise Program” that kept them from arresting the Florida shooting one single time out of almost 50 confirmed complaints;
  • We have at least 3 federal circuit courts that think they are Congress and are above the President;
  • We have and FBI and a DOJ that is so politically corrupt that the almost got away with rigging the last election;
  • We have a federal water policy that is crippling our agricultural output; we have almost a trillion-dollar trade imbalance that robs a trillion dollars out of our GDP every year;
  • We have had at least one law enforcement killing per week since the first of the year and Obama’s 8 years of bad-mouthing our police; 
  • We are being challenged every day by North Korea, China, Russia, Iran, ISIS, Terrorists, and others while we have a depleted military and support infrastructure;
  • We have not passed a real budget in 10 years!  Trump proposed his on time and so far Congress has not done a thing to pass it!
  • We have a main stream media that is so Anti-American that it is helping to destroy the very fabric of this great nation.
  • And I could go on for days!

The Republican Congress needs to step up and start passing Trump’s agenda and doing so on his timetable, not theirs!  The Senate needs to grow up and return the Senate to a 50 vote majority and vote on the backlog of legislation awaiting them from the House.  The Senate needs to vote up or down now on all of Trump’s appointments.  It is criminal that they have not even voted on our ambassador to Germany!

And, Congress needs to stay in session and do their job!  They are all worried about the 2018 Mid-Terms.  News flash!  IF you don’t pass Trump’s agenda, you won’t have to worry about the 2020 election as you won’t be in office!

GOP’s Head of Its 2018 National Senatorial Campaign Committee Ditches Trump’s Immigration Plan for the Schumer Amnesty Plan

You just can’t make this stuff up.  Colorado (the home of legalized legal pot) Senator Cory Gardner broke ranks with the President and endorsed the Schumer amnesty bill.  Under this bill, 2 million illegal aliens, ostensibly DACA candidates, would be granted amnesty and citizenship, the $25 Billion for the wall could be used for “other” purposes, NO changes to chain migration, leave the VISA lottery in place, and no additional border security changes such as doing away with the idiotic “catch and release” program.  

Gardner knows that the President supports Senator Grassley’s bill that includes all 4 of the Trump template for the DACA immigration reform.  

What does this mean for the GOP’s chance of increasing its seats in the Senate in the 2018 Mid-Terms when you have the head of the re-election committee obstructing the President’s agenda!  Especially since the public overwhelmingly supports the Presidents framework for immigration.  Remember, this clown Gardner controls the cash for candidates who are seeking election in 2018.  How can Mitch McConnell have an idiot like Gardner running the National Senatorial Campaign Committee?  RINO’s have all had a lobotomy.

Liddle Bobby Corker, Senator from Tennessee, Changes His Liddle Mind and Wants to Run for Re-Election!

In September of 2017, Corker announced that he would not seek re-election.  Now, he is having second thoughts.  After all, what would Liddle Bobby Corker do without his Senate Cafeteria pass?  Remember, once again, Corker is a RINO that has badmouthed the President incessantly since the 2016 election.  But, after the Trump Tax cuts are becoming popular, Liddle Bobby wants to jump up and try to grab onto the Trump coattails!  Liddle Bobby, go away quietly and let a real conservative populist, Marsha Blackburn, step up and take over you vacuous place!

The Tennessee Tea Parties are ready to jump all over Corker if he chucks his hat into the ring.  Former Putnam County Republican Chairman and conservative activist Rachel Welch told Breitbart, “If Corker makes it official that he’s running, I am calling Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s office in the next minute and offering every ounce of time, energy, events coordination, and money I can muster.  “And I would look forward to the #humiliation Corker would suffer in losing as an incumbent. Go away Liddle Senator Bob Corker. Just GO AWAY.”

Can’t add much to that!

Republican Trey Gowdy Opens an Investigation into Trump Handling of the Rob Porter Spousal Abuse Vetting

If having the Democrats and the Swamp going after the Trump administration for Russian Collusion, obstruction of justice and jay-walking, we now have the House Government Oversight Committee looking into how the White House Staff Secretary was allowed to work in the White House since his two ex-wives alleged he was physically and emotionally abusive to them.  

I get it. spousal abuse is a serious and inexcusable offense against wives and husbands and cannot be condoned.  But, Gowdy jumped the gun after FBI head Christopher Wray testified that the FBI had finished their vetting of Rob Porter last July and then November.  Gowdy, did not even mention the White House Personnel Security department who is the liaison with the FBI in vetting of WH staff and who is the interface with the White House Chief of Staff, not the FBI!  

My issue with the Gowdy inquiry is that we have the Obama FBI, the DOJ, the Intel agencies and the State Department absolutely interfering with a Presidential election.  While spousal abuse is serious, it is secondary to interference with a Constitutionally specified election of the highest office of the land.  Further, Republicans are better at investigating Republicans as they won’t have to fight the press like they do when trying to prosecute the attempted coup d’état against Donald Trump!

We posted an article on the Rob Porter Roast yesterday.  You can read it at https://wp.me/pY51c-19G.

Anyone remember who was prosecuted when Gowdy investigated the Benghazi fiasco when 4 Americans died at the inept hand of the Obama/Clinton administration.  Oh yeah, NO ONE WAS REFERRED BY GOWDY FOR PROSECUTION.

Trump Agenda Dependent on Dumping McConnell’s 60 Vote Rule

Even if the Republicans gain 9 seats in the Senate in the 2018 Mid-Terms, Trump will need the idiotic 60 vote rule in the Senate changed to a simple majority in order to complete our agenda and restore this country to economic prosperityWhat is McConnell’s excuse for hanging onto the 60 vote rule?  He says the Democrats will use this against the Republicans WHEN the Democrats take back the Senate!!!! 

Well, if you don’t pass the Trump agenda, you will ensure that the Democrats take over the Senate in 2018!  

Will 60 Republicans in the Senate Save the Trump Agenda?

Nope!  We still have to deal with McCain, Graham, Murkowski, Collins and others who are left of center “Republicans”.  They will fight Trump on immigration, the budget, the Wall, and many other issues.  If the Senate does not dump the anti-democratic 60 vote rule, the Trump agenda will be in serious jeopardy.  Even worse, Trump’s long-term effort to reduce our deficit will be a lost hope.  Too many in the Senate are big spenders and who support big government programs like Obamacare!

Why do Senators love the 60 vote Rule?

Senators hide behind the 60 vote rule as an excuse for doing nothing to pass needed legislation!  When Republican Senators know that there will be less than 60 votes for a popular piece of legislation they actually oppose, they will vote for it in order to say that they voted on a popular issue but it did not pass!  The 60 vote rule is a gutless shield for do-nothing Senators.  If Republican members of the House knows that the Senate only needed 51 votes to pass legislation, you will also see just how lily-livered some of these members are as well.

Pressure Your Senator Now

During this Mid-Term year, pressure your Senator to do away with the 60 Vote rule.  If your Senator is not up for re-election, pressure  and pin down your candidates on their stance on the 60 vote rule.  Do note take any weak answer as an answer.  Also, pressure them on their position for eliminating the blocking of Presidential appointments.  After more than a year, Trump’s ambassador to Germany, a key European ally, is still not confirmed.  Many appointment have given up and withdrawn.  They can’t wait forever for the Senate.  They have families to support too!

RINO Watch Weekly Report: “Stupid is as Stupid Does!

At least once a week I will publish a RINO Watch stupidity report.  I know I will never run out of materials as the RINOs always outdo themselves to vie for the stupidity award.  This week is no exception!

*****

RINOs Respond to 8 Month Old FAKE NEWS Story and Warn Trump Not to Fire Heir Robert Mueller!

Of course the usual suspects, Lindsay Graham and Susan Collins, had to respond to a question from the media this weekend regarding their reaction to Trump wanting to fire Special Council Robert Mueller, or even conflicted Deputy AG Rosenstein.  This, in spite of the fact that this FAKE NEWS story was originally published almost 8 months ago and the President and his staff have denied the story!  Even Senator Grassley felt he had to chime in and warn Trump not to fire Mueller! 

DUH!  Assume the story is true, it has been 8 months and Trump has not fired Mueller yet!  So, Where is the BEEF?

RINOs suffer from the Al Sharpton Jessie Jackson Mic Syndrome (ASJJMS).  They can’t pass up opening their mouth when a mic and a camera are around.  It is like an automatic reflex.  Mic, mouth open.  Camera, mouth open.  Trouble is they never engage their brain before opening their mouths!

*****

Goofy Special Council Ken Starr-Mueller Should LOOK INTO whether Trump Lied About Wanting to Fire Mueller!

This is separate from the RINO comments above because Ken Starr proved that he is a Eunuch RINO as evidenced by his less than testosterone driven investigation of the obviously hyper-testosterone driven Bill Clinton.  The most NOT BRILLIANT admission by star in the interview was:

“He can ask for Mueller to be fired for any reason.  The president’s power is extremely broad, as long as he’s not engaged in discrimination or accepting bribes.”

Well, apparently he did not bribe himself nor is he discriminating against the old white guy Robert Mueller.  Maybe he is guilty of discriminating against Mueller’s obvious leftist-elite political animus, failure of Mueller to recuse himself in light of his obvious conflicts of interests, or maybe for just being an old white guy!

*****

RINOs Want to Stop the Release of the Nunes Memo Regarding Possible DOJ/FBI Corruption Regarding FISA Misuse

Lindsay Graham is in the spotlight once again along with the DOJ/FBI trying to Obstruct the Public’s Right to Know if its highest law enforcement and intelligence agencies have been corrupted!  Graham wants to wait to release the information until:

“I don’t want [the memo] released yet,” he said. “I want somebody without a political bias to come in and look at the allegations I have seen.”

And, pray tell dear Lindsay,  just who in Washington is WITHOUT POLITICAL BIAS!  

The TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S own Department of Justice, through the Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd told Rep Nunes, the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, in a letter this week that releasing a memo  “extraordinarily reckless.”  How about the “extraordinarily reckless” abuses by the DOJ and the FBI to date in the Clinton Non-Investigation MATTER, the IRS Scandals, Fast and Furious Scandals, Benghazi botched investigations, Uranium-One “vetting” and more… 

Boyd thought that it would be a better idea to pass the memo to the DOJ  watchdog, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz.  This would keep this out of the public for at least another 2 months.  Meanwhile the two Star-Struck lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are still working for the agencies in spite of their obvious bias as set forth in their own text messages.

Hopefully Nunes will get the committee to vote to release the memo this week.  President Trump has indicated that, in spite of the objections raised by his own DOJ and FBI, he would welcome the memo being made available to the public!  AG Sessions and the entire 7th floor of the FBI better not get too comfortable in their lush surroundings. 

The President can’t be very happy about the lack of respect he has been shown by this agencies!  The President has shown a great deal of constraint given that if he did ORDER the DOJ/FBI to release info, then the MSM and the left would cry OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE!

Trump’s Immigration Proposal-Chill Out! Understand the Plan First!

See the source image

Trump struck a nerve on the Right and the Left when he had Steven Miller announce his Border Wall/DACA/Immigration Plan yesterday.  Given both wings have slammed this proposal, actually gives this plan more, not less, merit!  Pelosi/Schumer and Ted Cruz all hit the mics to thump their chests and condemn the President’s plan!

But, What are the Facts?

Amnesty Vs Path to Citizenship:

The right is clamoring that this plan is Amnesty for 1.8 million DACA candidates.  Any plan to them is equal to amnesty.  When you press them, they say that rather than amnesty, the DACA candidates should get in line like every other immigration applicant.  OK, I agree, but so does Trump!  An immigration applicant files for immigration then undergoes a medical, criminal, and other forms of background checking.  This takes anywhere from 6 months, if you are married to an American citizen, to 3 years plus. 

TRUMP IS PROPOSING THAT THE DACA CANDIDATES WAIT 10-12 YEARS TO BECOME A CITIZEN DURING WHICH TIME THEY UNDERGO THE SAME BACKGROUND CHECKS AND PROVE THAT THEY ARE ELIGIBLE TO BE CONSIDERED AS A DACA CANDIDATE.  Further, during this period, the candidates can be rejected if they enroll to receive any type of government subsistence; or, if they commit a crime; or if they return to their “home” country without permission.

The right is apoplectic about the 1.8M DACA candidates that were included in the President’s plan.  CHILL!  The 690,000 DACA candidates are those who enrolled in the DACA program.  No one really knows but it is estimated that there are another 1.2M potential DACA enrollees who have not signed up yet.  Before you start screaming, “They had their chance”, there is a small roadblock called the US Constitution and its Equal Protection clause.  If a person otherwise qualifies as a DACA Candidate but did not sign up, the likelihood is extremely high that the Supreme Court would allow those people to enroll in DACA.  You may say that they are not citizens and have no rights.  Sorry but since they are in the US and have been residing here they to inherit constitutional protections.  It may be that rather than there being an additional 1.2M potential DACA enrollees, it may be less, it may be more.  But, the President realistically included actual and potential candidates.  Would you rather have this or have him lie to you and in the end you find out there were really 1.8 applicants!  

Since the President is putting a 10-12 year period restriction on the DACA candidates, I would think they would return to their parent’s home country and apply for citizenship!  It may be faster if this plan is adopted!  Since the President put in a 10-12 year implementation plan, this satisfies the BORDER SECURITY FIRST crowd!

$25 Billion for the Wall and Border Security

President Trump’s plan calls for $25Billion to be set aside, and not subject to future Congressional rescission, to build the wall, add more border agents, provide for additional security enhancements to the Southern and CANADIAN borders, and build border courts.  The President knows that he may or may not continue to have Republican majorities in the House and Senate and wants the funding to be set in stone.  Plus, he knows that he cannot implement all of the needed Wall and security changes in one or two budget years.  He does not want to take a chance on having Congress playing games with this funding.  Republicans or Democrats!

Chain Migration

President Trump included an end to chain migration and will ask that it be replaced with merit based migration requirements.  The only vestige to chain migration will be that an approved immigrant can bring his or her spouse and their children.  This also applies to the DACA candidates.

Visa Lottery Program:

The President is proposed that this program be eliminated totally.  As stated above, visa applicants will be subjected to merit based scrutiny and be required to meet specific criteria that documents that they will be contributory to the US economy.  More later.

Port and Northern Border Security

The President is also proposing measures to beef up port security to eliminate incoming illicit drugs and human trafficking.  These same measures will be put in place along our Canadian borders that span approximately 5,500 miles!  Just think how easy it is to cross the great lakes from Canada and enter the US!  Not hard!

Other Provisions:

Before we finish up with the other provisions, what Trump is actually doing is comprehensive immigration!  If he gets most of what he will finishing outlining next week, there were be few if any real major issues remaining regarding our immigration policy.  But, don’t tell the Left or the Media!

Legal Immigration:

The President will cut back on the numbers eligible to be approved to come into this country.  The President is slowing legal immigration to allow time to assimilate all of the chain, lottery, and refugee immigrants that have come into this country in the past 15 years.  He want to make sure we can ensure that hot pockets of unassimilated immigrants are successfully melded into our society and our economy.  He also wants to make sure that during the growth of our economy, that AMERICANS, not immigrants have priority to receive the newly created jobs!

The President is also proposing to crack down on legal Visa overstays that are the largest contributor to our illegal immigration.  As part of his border security provisions, he will be implementing tacking and apprehension policies to eliminate Visa overstays.

The President will also be proposing to beef up and require the use of E-Verify.  I am not sure if he will not only require private sector employees to use E-Verify, but he should force government welfare agencies, State Food Stamp agencies, and other governmental agencies who approve subsistence or healthcare assistance to use E-Verify.  Once the wall and other security policies are put in place, this will ensure that anyone who sneaks through will be caught by E-Verify and asked to leave or be prosecuted.

There will be other details that will be released next week and as they are I will update this post.  But, take a deep breath and take conservative and liberal media with a grain of salt when they rail against the President’s proposal.  Also, remember, final legislation is up to Congress.  So, when I hear Ted Cruz and other condemn this proposal, I would remind them that the President is trying to get YOU TO DO YOUR JOB AND COME UP WITH A BILL YOURSELVES!  It is easy to run up to a mic and complain. 

Actual work is hard, that is why it called work!

If the President can get his proposal through Congress, he will once again accomplish something no one has been able to do since before 1966, solve many immigration issues and secure this great nation.

DACA is CACA-690 Thousand vs 325 Million

Fact:  As of September of 2017, only 690,000 have actually enrolled in the DACA program and potentially eligible to participate in any future DACA legislation including Amnesty and chain migration for at least their parents!  That represents .2% (2 people out of every 1,000) of the total population of the US.  Yet, to hear the media and the Democrat Progressive Left the DACA issue is the most important issue facing this nation and that our very soul is dependent on granting amnesty and family chain migration to this group!  Really?

DACA and Chain Migration-NEVER!

Even mushy conservatives our spewing rhetoric trying to justify allowing DACA recipients to use chain migration to legalize their parents and extended family.  BS!  It was their parents who broke our laws in the first place and brought or caused the DACA “kids” to be here in the first place This is nuts.  Get in line and apply!  It is estimated that if DACA enrollees utilize chain migration, the total number of people granted “amnesty” via a DACA “FIX” would be 10,350,000!  Further, the total NET cost of this program would be $28 Billion in 10 years!  Illegal immigration last year cost Americans a NET $115,000,000,000 ($115 Billion).  Had enough yet!

DACA VS America

HomelessWe have 550,000 homeless men and women in the US today.  OF those, 40,000 are veterans, 54% disabled and  40% are Black.  Over 21% of the homeless reside in the Sanctuary State of California and another 15.7% in Sanctuary State of New York for a combined total of 37.2%.  The two richest States in the Union have the most homeless and no plan to improve the overall economy in order to move the homeless into a sound financial existence.  How about passing laws to treat the homeless who are mentally ill, drug addicted, or otherwise disabled?  Do you know why this is not a priority?  THE ONLY LOBBY GROUPS INVOLVING THE HOMELESS ARE THOSE THAT ARE MAKING MONEY OFF OF THE HOMELESS POPULATION!!!  (Excluding the Veterans groups who are actually working with the VA to solve this problem for vets.)  How about we take care of the thousands of addicted Americans before worrying about 690,000 DACA enrollees?

Drug Addiction:  We are losing 65,000 Americans per year to opioid overdoses every year.  This is the same number of soldiers we lost OVER A PERIOD OF 20 YEARS!  How about we take care of the thousands of addicted Americans before worrying about 690,000 DACA enrollees?

Black On Black Homicide In Our Inner Cities:  We have all read or heard about the daily carnage in our Inner Cities that are run by Liberal Politicians.  A lot of the poverty in these inner cities is due to the influx of illegal immigrants who will work for less money than our own citizens.  Allowing illegals to compete against our own citizens is helping to memorialize welfare and poverty in our inner cities that drives our youth into drug gangs and perpetuates the high Black on Black homicide rates.

See the source image

 I could go on for days pointing out areas of our nation that need to be addressed that compete with the $28 Billion that would be spent supporting DACA enrollees if they are granted amnesty.  Why bother!  This is a mid-term election year and the limp-wristed RINOs in Congress would never stand up to the Liberal Left’s assault if the Republicans deferred DACA amnesty past this March. 

President Trump is trying to thread in between the RINOs and the Liberals to get the wall built, end chain migration, and end the idiotic immigration lottery system.  He really wants to include the creation of a merit based immigration system but it is doubtful he could get anywhere near 50, let along 60 votes to get the whole enchilada! 

So, we are probably looking at granting amnesty to 690,000 DACA enrollees and at least their parents who have either committed a felony or aided and abetted in the commission of a felony!  Meanwhile, many American priorities will go unfunded and unresolved.  Until RINOs can stand up to the immigration activists, including those who want cheap labor for businesses, we will repeat this DACA fiasco, or another flavor of DACA, in the near future. 

If the wall is not built and security beefed up ala Trump priorities, we will be staring at even more illegal immigrant challenges.

What if we do Nothing to “Fix” DACA?

Not much!  As long as the DACA enrollees do not commit a felony or leave America to go back “home”, they are not targets for deportation.  The left tries to portray Trump as having a list of names and addresses for DACA enrollees and has ICE on the line ready to deport the DACA enrollees on March 15th if Congress does not act!  BS! 

How about Congress pass a bill that allows the DACA enrollees to stay with a work permit for 10 years.  After 5 of the 10 years they can apply for citizenship and undergo the same process all other immigrants have to go through.  If they do not go through the process, they will be expelled after 10 years to a country of their choice!  In the interim, they are ineligible to receive any benefits from the Federal or State government programs!
