Donald Trump: ‘I Am Considering a Veto of the Omnibus Spending Bill’

President Donald Trump announced on Twitter on Friday that he was considering a veto of the omnibus spending bill.

“I am considering a VETO of the Omnibus Spending Bill based on the fact that the 800,000 plus DACA recipients have been totally abandoned by the Democrats (not even mentioned in Bill) and the BORDER WALL, which is desperately needed for our National Defense, is not fully funded,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Friday morning.

Trump’s statement counters his White House budget director Mick Mulvaney, who told reporters yesterday that the president would sign the bill, even though it was not perfect.

“Let’s cut right to the chase: Is the President going to sign the bill? The answer is yes,” Mulvaney said on Thursday.

But the president appears to have second thoughts after the bloated $1.3 trillion spending package passed the Senate in the middle of the night. Many members of Congress already leaving Washington, DC for their break or on foreign travel.

Trump has repeatedly questioned the bill’s failure to fund the wall, frustrated that Democrats refused to budge on his funding priority.

On Wednesday, House Speaker Paul Ryan traveled to the White House with Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to discuss the bill, and felt comfortable that they had the president’s support.

“The President supports this bill. There’s no two ways about it,” Ryan said on Thursday.


Poll: Majority Believe Illegal Immigration Serious Problem

A majority of Americans believe that illegal immigration is a serious problem, according to the most recent YouGov poll.

The poll, conducted Feb. 18-20, asked respondents, “How serious a problem is illegal immigration in the U.S. as a whole?”

A majority (32% “serious,” 21% “somewhat serious”) considered illegal immigration to be a serious problem while 28% said it is a “minor problem.” Another nine percent said it is “not a problem” while 10% were not sure.

Furthermore, just 19% of those surveyed wanted an increase in legal immigration while 27% called for a decrease. Thirty-seven percent of respondents did not want a change in immigration levels.

YouGov conducted its survey as Congress tries to find a solution for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive amnesty program. President Donald Trump has indicated he would be willing to give nearly two million so-called Dreamers a path to citizenship in exchange for limits to chain migration and funding for the border wall. But Democrats have been vehement in their opposition to any cuts in legal immigration, claiming in sensational ways that it is just Trump’s attempt, in the words of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), to “make America white again.”

YouGov surveyed 1,500 people, and the poll’s margin of error is +/- 3.1 percentage points.


Trump’s Immigration Policy Gets Jobs, Higher Wages for 600 African-Americans



President Donald Trump’s enforcement of immigration laws has delivered hundreds of jobs at higher wages to sidelined African-Americans in Chicago after a Swiss-owned bakery was penalized for employing roughly 800 illegals.

The good news was admitted in a Chicago Sun-Times article:

Ed French, owner of Elgin-based Metro Staff Inc., says his company became the main provider of [replacement] workers for the bakery and that about 80 percent of them are black. According to French … wages [are] up by about 25 cents an hour, to just above minimum wage.

He says everyone hired through his company is permitted to work in the country and has passed a background check and drug test.

According to a former consultant to the bakery, MSI paid the black workers $14 an hour, versus the $10 an hour the Mexican workers were making through Labor Network.

Newly hired Latino-Americans are also getting the higher wage.

The wage-cutting illegals — mostly Mexicans — were employed at the Cloverhill bakery in Northwest Chicago and the company’s other bakeries in Cicero and Romeoville. When the illegals were fired, the company’s output fell and it lost customers. The Swiss owner, Aryzta, has since sold the Cloverhill bakery to Hostess Brands.

Nationwide, many companies and their allied politicians are complaining that Trump’s pro-American policy is leaving them with few imported workers and is forcing up wages. However, CEOs have kept wage increases to just a 1 percent increase from January 2017 to January 2018, after considering inflation.

Trump’s win for Chicagoans comes as local Democratic politicians try to help illegal immigrants instead of Americans. For example, Democratic Senator Dick Durbin spend much of December, January and February trying to win an amnesty for at least 3 million illegal immigrants, which would have ensured a flood of new legal workers for jobs in Chicago and other cities. On January 15, for example, Durbin told reporters:

 I’m focused on one thing — not that meeting [with Presidenet Donald Trump] — but on making sure that those who are being protected by DACA and eligible for the DREAM Act have a future in America. I am focused on that full time.

Durbin’s amnesty would also have denied the jobs and wage-raises to the roughly 600 African-Americans now working at Cloverhill.

Trump’s pro-American policy has won him significant support among working-class blacks as black unemployment has fallen to historic lows.

The good economic news from Chicago is offset by the increased diversity and conflict imposed by the pro-immigration Democratic and business groups. reported comments from Dan Giloth, a project director with the Chicago-based Coalition Against Segregation of Employees group:

“Although they lost lots of [illegal] workers through the ICE audit, their response has been hiring lots of workers, mainly blacks, giving them little training, working them excessive hours and giving them mandatory 12- to 16-hour shifts,” he said. “When workers get hurt, they’re essentially thrown away” … also reported:

Lisa Pintado-Vertner, a member of Oak Park Call to Action, said that employees have told her that Aryzta tries to “pit groups against each other, because if you divide you can conquer,” she said.

“We hear stories from African Americans who say Latinos won’t speak English to me and Latinos who say blacks are lazy … “

The Sun-Times reported that African-American employees at Cloverhill summoned Trump’s ICE agents amid blue-collar conflicts over language, hours, shifts, favoritism and pay.

Lynne Lane, a union steward at Cloverhill, says there are tensions as the two groups work side by side. Lane, who is black, says it was black workers at the bakery who called a government hotline to report the Mexican workers to immigration authorities.

“It was [African American] workers in the plant that saw, you know, like I said, that had been treated unfairly and treated like secondary-class citizens” by Hispanic workers, Lane says. “So it was a whole lot of employees in the company. Well, they was given a number, as far as I know. They was given a number to call … to call Immigration.”

Four million Americans turn 18 each year and begin looking for good jobs in the free market.

But the federal government inflates the supply of new labor by annually accepting roughly 1.1 million new legal immigrants, by providing work-permits to roughly 3 million resident foreigners, and by doing little to block the employment of roughly 8 million illegal immigrants.

The Washington-imposed economic policy of economic growth via mass-immigration floods the market with foreign laborspikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. It also drives up real estate priceswidens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions.



Donald Delivers 30-Day Eviction Notice To Barack’s Most Cherished Legacy

One of the biggest differences between President Obama and President Trump? How they wield their Presidential authority.

Obama abused his executive orders to push through his agenda. He did not want to work with Congress. It was an obvious and flagrant violation of the Constitution’s limits on power.

Trump, on the other hand, isn’t interested in going beyond what the law allows. He understands that to make a permanent change, you need to do it through law. That’s why he rescinded DACA’s, Obama’s worst abuse of executive authority.

Now he’s made it clear, he won’t sign any orders extending the controversial program.

From The Hill:

White House chief of staff John Kelly said Tuesday that President Trump is unlikely to extend the deadline for work permits under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program on March 5 if Congress has not reached a deal on immigration by that date.

Kelly told reporters on Capitol Hill that he was “not so sure” that Trump had the authority to extend the deadline because the program was not based on law, The Washington Post reported.

Work permits for DACA recipients will begin to expire on that date due to Trump’s decision to rescind DACA in September with a six-month delay.

Would you have ever heard these words out of Barack “the ends justify the means” Obama? Barack “never waste a good crisis” Obama? No, and here’s what’s at stake:

“There are 690,000 official DACA recipients and the president sent over what amounts to be two and a half times that number, to 1.8 million,” Kelly continued. “The difference between 690 and 1.8 million were the people that some would say were too afraid to sign up, others would say were too lazy to get off their asses, but they didn’t sign up.”

Obama grossly overstepped his bounds when he issued DACA. He refused to work with Congress to provide a lasting solution (legally and within the bounds Constitution). It’s why we are facing the problems we have today. Obama’s impatience and short-sidedness left us with today’s crisis.

Trump is not Obama. He’s not interested in forcing issues to get his own way. He wants lasting fixes for our ailing country. That means getting Congress to draft an immigration solution that will work. And continue to work for many years. Unlike DACA, which was a poor, short-term Band-Aid.

But will Congress be responsible enough to make that fix? President Trump laid out his goals in the SOTU address. It’s up to Republicans in Congress to draft up a bill to fit his vision. But Democrats might not be willing to compromise. Which will lead to more gridlock and possible government shutdowns.

The question is: will Democrats be mature enough to swallow their pride and work with Trump? Hmm, I’ll let you answer that yourselves.

‘Dreamers’ are Threatening to Leave the Country if No DACA Deal is Made

If you had to read that headline more than once, don’t worry, I am sure you are not the only one. This is just rich. The so-called ‘Dreamers’ who are illegally in our country, are actually threatening to leave the country if there is no deal made to keep them here. Let that sink in.

Geez, entitled much?!

Michelle Malkin had this to say back in September in a Fox Business interview and it seems all the more relevant now.  Malkin said,  “The fact is that if there were a single ‘deserving dreamer’ in this country, they would be deserving because they would acknowledge that they are owed nothing and that they deserve nothing from a country into which they were born because of their parents’ illegal activity.”

Malkin went on to say, “You can talk to anyone who’s come into the country the right and proper way, including my own parents. There are so many first- and second- generation Americans who understand that citizenship is a privilege and not a right. And when you have an entire class of 800,000 people who feel entitled to be here despite the law, you are creating the very trouble we are in now.”

H/T Daily Wire

A group of DREAMers, young illegal immigrants fighting to stay in the country following the Trump Administration’s refusal to extend the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive order, say they’ll leave the country if a deal isn’t reached . . . err . . . to keep them in the country.

Speaking to CNN, one of these DREAMers, Alex Velez, said, “I will leave. I will leave America as soon as possible,” claiming that she would prefer to depart the country on her own terms than wait for the United States to collect and deport her.

The theory appears to be that, if DREAMers suddenly disappear, Americans will notice their absence. Velez and her sister claim they own businesses, pay tuition, and hold jobs, and that America has a duty to keep them here in order to maintain their contributions.

The problem is, for the Velez sisters, striking against the United States for refusing to accommodate them isn’t a plan with a likely payoff. The pair are undocumented citizens brought over by their parents from Venezuela, and the situation in their home country is less than ideal.

The United States Congress may be taking its time renewing the DACA Act, but Venezuela is currently crumbling under a dictator — so the theory that they’d return to a more awesome place to show President Trump what he’s missing might not pan out.

If a comprehensive immigration reform plan is not approved by early March, DACA recipients will be allowed to finish out the term of their amnesty contract before being declared “illegal.” Congress says it is working on a solution and President Trump has been clear that DACA recipients who overstay will not be targeted for deportation.

I will say this for the Dreamers, they have got some guts. They have no problem flaunting their illegal status and protesting everywhere without regard for our laws. Though this declaration….threatening to leave our country… sure takes it to a new level of entitlement!

Look, I see their point. Their point is that we somehow need them in our country. I am also sure there are some “Dreamers” that contribute and under ordinary circumstances, we would be happy to have them in our country. But the fact is, “Dreamers” are not as important as a group as they think they are.

If “Dreamers” really wanted to stay and make a case for it, you would think they would show a little more gratefulness to our country. You would think if they want to become part of our country, they would also see the need for protecting our borders. But running around hating our president and acting like this country belongs to then, that will get them nowhere fast.

To me, it sounds like we have found the solution to the DACA problem. Do nothing and they can leave on their own. Problem solved! This is probably as likely as all of those celebrities who left the country after Trump won the presidency, but hey we can still hope!


DISGRACE! McCain Will Sponsor Bill Giving DACA Amnesty but NO Border Wall (Details)

Sen. John McCain is continuing to do everything in his power to spite President Trump, while helping Democrats.

Why, John?

Why do you want DACA amnesty but NO border wall?

Check it…

From Downtrend:

According to reports, McCain is working with another pro-amnesty globalist in Delaware Democrat Chris Coons to introduce a bill to give amnesty to the DACA Dreamers.

The bill will also tell President Trump exactly where he can stick his border wall as McCain’s masterpiece will not include the funding that Trump is demanding.

Wall Street Journal has more:

Republican Sen. John McCain, Democratic Sen. Chris Coons say they will propose path to citizenship for DACA participants, but no wall

The government’s current funding expires at 12:01 a.m. Friday. Immigration has become entangled in the spending negotiations since President Donald Trump last year ended an Obama-era program that protects young people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, known as Dreamers.

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R., Ariz.) and Sen. Chris Coons (D., Del.) plan to unveil a proposal that offers a path to citizenship for Dreamers and orders a comprehensive study to determine what border-security measures are needed. But the bill stops well short of almost all of the president’s demands—including immediate funding for the wall along the southern border—and is likely to meet a chilly reception from conservative Republicans.

Still, Mr. McCain, who was diagnosed with brain cancer last summer and has been working from Arizona since late 2017, retains powerful sway among his GOP colleagues. His bill with Mr. Coons could also benefit from good timing, as the March 5 deadline draws closer and lawmakers grapple with the political consequences of failing to reach any agreement.

“It’s time we end the gridlock so we can quickly move on to completing a long-term budget agreement that provides our men and women in uniform the support they deserve,” Mr. McCain said in a statement Sunday.

This man needs to retire – NOW!

Trump to Democrats: Compromise on Immigration Now or Get Nothing After Election


President Donald Trump suggested Thursday that the GOP could postpone his immigration-and-amnesty push, and instead pass a no-compromise immigration rewrite in 2019.

“We have to get help from either side [to pass a bill in 2018] — or we have to elect many more Republicans,” Trump told GOP legislators gathered at the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia.

Electing more Republicans “is another way of doing it,” he said, prompting cheers. He continued:

Really, that is another way of doing it. And based on the [election related] numbers we just saw, we have a real chance of doing that …  [Immigration] is now an election issue that will go to our benefit, not their benefit.

Trump said his four-part immigration and amnesty plan “includes reforms that are overwhelmingly popular with the voters, including Democrats … Americans want an immigration system that works for everybody.”

Trump’s suggestion is a 2018 threat to Democrats largely because Trump’s immigration priorities are far more popular than the Democrats’ pro-migrant, cheap-labor policies. By focussing the 2018 race on the nation’s current cheap-labor economic strategy, Trump could reanimate the blue-collar base that carried him to victory in 2016 and also trump the Democrats’ base of revenge-seeking liberals.

Trump’s suggestion of a delay also offers GOP legislators an escape from the amnesty debate, in which they are being pushed to vote for a very unpopular amnesty of at least 1.8 million Democratic-leaning ‘dreamer’ migrants. Unless Democrats suddenly relax their hardline opposition to reforms, the GOP legislators may quietly embrace Trump’s alternative strategy, and then stall and delay debate on the amnesty while pushing the issue into the November election.

A decision to punt the issue into November would also deny employers a flood of new immigrant workers. Without those imported workers, GOP legislators would benefit when employers raise wages for many American voters in the run-up to the November election.

But Trump’s threat of an immigration-election also shows that he wants to make a quick deal with the Democrats — if the Democrats can overcome their visceral opposition to Trump’s legal reforms and his border wall.

Also, Trump did not explicitly say he would take the immigration-and-amnesty issue to the voters in 2018 — even though the issue would likely be front-and-center in the election campaign.

In his speech to the GOP leaders, Trump complained that the Democrats are ignoring his four-part reform-and-amnesty plan.“We’re getting very little help from the Democrats, but I hope when I leave this room I get a call from these people saying ‘Let’s go,’” Trump told GOP legislators gathered at the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia.

You know, they talk a good game. We have to get help from either side — or we have to elect many more Republicans. That is another way of doing it. [cheers)’ really, that is another way of doing it. And based on the [election related] numbers we just saw, we have a real chance of doing that.

You know ’18 is going to be very interesting. But we’ve got to do one or the other – either they’re going to have to come on board — because they talk a good game with DACA, but they don’t produce — … either they come on board or we’re just going to have to really work and we’re going to have to get more people so we can get the kind of numbers that we need to pass in a much easier fashion legislation [in 2019].

And to get it done [in 2018], we’ll all have to make some compromises along the way to get it done this way, Now to get it done the other way [in 2019], if we win more [seats], we don’t have to compromise so much, OK?

In his State of the Union address, Trump offered to back an amnesty for the 800,000 people who enrolled in the DACA quasi-amnesty, plus at least 1 million additional unidentified illegals who claim to have arrived as children before 2012.

In exchange, Trump asked $25 billion for his wall, plus legal reforms to fill up legal loopholes in border enforcement, plan an end to the visa lottery and to chain migration.

Ending the lottery and chain migration would trim legal immigration by roughly one-third each year, but only after 2027. The benefit for Americans is delayed because Trump’s offer also accepts all 4 million foreigners now on the chain-migration list.

Trump’s plan is sharply opposed by business groups which recognize that Americans’ wages will be nudged up if they cannot hire imported workers. Those business groups, including the Koch brother, have an outside influence because they provide a huge share of the party’s funding, and they are pressuring GOP legislators to actually increase the inflow of foreign workers.

The four-part Trump plan is also opposed by Democrats, who fear that the reforms will sharply cut the long-term inflow of government-dependent migrants. Also, Democrats simply do not want to publicly endorse Trump’s cuts and his border wall.

Aside from the amnesty, Trump’s pro-American immigration plans are very popularamong the public, including among African-Americans who are a core element of the Democrats’ current electoral base.

Business groups, Democrats and the establishment tout the misleading, industry-funded “Nation of Immigrants” polls which pressure Americans to say they welcome migrants, including the roughly 3 million ‘dreamer’ illegals.

The alternative “priority or fairness” polls — plus the 2016 election — show that voters in the polling booth put a much higher priority on helping their families, neighbors, and fellow nationals get decent jobs in a high-tech, high-immigrationlow-wage economy.

According to the White House transcript, Trump said:

Nearly 7 in 10 Americans support an immigration reform package that includes a permanent solution on DACA.  And I’ve been hearing about DACA for so many years.  Some people call it DREAMers.  It’s not DREAMers.  Don’t fall into that trap.  It’s just much different than DREAMers.  And I said the other night, you know, we have dreamers too.  We have dreamers in this country, too.  You can’t forget our dreamers.  I have a lot of dreamers here.  (Applause.)

But DACA — we want to take care of DACA, and I hope we will.  We need the support of the Democrats in order to do it, and they might not want to do it.  They talk like they do, but I don’t think they do.  But we’re going to find out very soon.

We want something that is very, very tough and strong, in terms of the border.  We need to end chain migration, and we need to cancel the terrible visa lottery.  (Applause.)

And those are the four pillars that I talked about the other night.  We call them the White House framework — a plan that will finally bring our immigration system into the 21st Century.

The Republican position on immigration is the center, mainstream view of the American people, with some extra strength at the border and security at the border added in.  What we’re asking for and what the American people are pleading for is sanity and common sense in our immigration system.  We want immigration rules that protect our communities, defend our security, and admit people who will love our country and contribute to our society.

I know that the Senate is planning to bring an immigration bill on the floor, to the floor, in coming weeks.  And I’m asking that the framework we submitted — with great flexibility, great flexibility, working with both parties — that something very positive will come out of it for our country, for everybody — for our country.  And I think that can happen.

If the Democrats choose to filibuster a framework that includes a generous path to citizenship or something that is not fair, we are not going to approve it.  We’re just not going to approve it.

So we’ll either have something that’s fair and equitable and good and secure, or we’re going to have nothing at all.  And this has been going on for many years.  It doesn’t make sense, however, to have nothing at all, because this is something that people want.

So we will be demonstrating that we are very, very serious.  One of the reasons I gave a number that was, I thought, a very generous number was because I wanted to see whether or not they were interested in approving that.  Because if they don’t approve something within that sphere, that means, very simply, that they’re not looking to approve it at all.  They want to use it for an election issue, but it’s now an election issue that will go to our benefit, not their benefit.


Breaking: Trump Forces Schumer & Democrats To Surrender, End Shutdown Without Any DACA Concessions

Elder Patriot -For those who have convinced themselves that President Trump is a dunce who doesn’t have a clue how to get things done the following news will shock them to their core.

It appears that Trump got everything he wanted – a continuing resolution to fund the government – while Senate Minority Leader Schumer and the Dems got zip, zero, and nada.

And, here’s the shocking part, the vote was 81-18 to end cloture and move to a vote that Schumer has agreed to provide the votes to pass though likely not with as much bi-partisan support as the vote to end cloture received.  It’s all political posturing and face-saving from here. 

Schumer caved after being pelted by his fellow Democrat senators who were getting crushed back home for promoting the rights of illegal immigrants to be granted amnesty without any givebacks by his side.  In shutting down the government Schumer and the Dems put their support of DACA recipients ahead of paying of our military personnel – including those put in war zones by a Democratic president.

They were also facing their worst nightmare – another ad from Trump detailing how the Dems were reusing to fund the military that they had overseen the depletion of to pre-WWI preparedness levels under Obama.

Trump had already rocked the Dems with the release of this ad over the weekend:

It appears that Schumer is employing the Obama strategy of drawing lines in the sand that he knows he’s not prepared to defend.  In making the announcement that he had folded like a cheap suit, Schumer resorted to drawing another line that he can’t defend when he said, “The Republican majority now has 17 days to prevent the Dreamers from being deported.”

The fact is that’s another artificial deadline and it comes after President Trump delivers his State of the Union speech that he’ll use to lay out his immigration plan – not just his plans for DACA – to the people without the filter of the mainstream media matrix.

Trump refused to fold like previous Republican presidents. And despite negative comments from a number of GOP senators over the weekend – notably Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell – he knew he was holding a winning hand.

Trump was proven right when Susan Collins – a moderate to liberal Republican – put a stop to Schumer’s pointed diatribe against the president when she rose and politely asked Schumer to “Please stop.”

Finally Senate Majority Leader McConnell confirmed that Trump had successfully called Schumer’s bluff when he addressed the Senate before the vote:

“If we learned anything during this process, it’s that a strategy to shut down the federal government over the issue of illegal immigration is something the American people did not understand.”  That was McConnell’s polite way of saying Americans weren’t buying what Schumer was laying down.

“They’ve got no exit strategy.  They have no plan. You really need to ask yourself how does this end, and they really can’t answer that question. They can’t get what they want. They’ve taken a hostage they can’t shoot.”

Majority Whip John Cornyn was more concise when he said:

“I think people realize this is really a dumb move.”

Meanwhile immigrants’ rights groups encourage Democrats to die on this hill with future votes.  One such leader, Frank Sharry, said, “It’s really important Democrats continue to show the backbone they’ve shown to date to ensure this high-stakes move results in bipartisan breakthroughs,” 

President Trump – the low IQ, knuckle dragging, Neanderthal – has taken Chuck Schumer and the Dems to the woodshed and given them a beat down they’d like to forget.

President Trump had expressed his willingness to protect DACA recipients with amnesty but he demanded border security in return – something Americans can wrap their heads around. 

Schumer believed he could snooker Trump like a previous Democratic Congress snookered President Reagan into granting amnesty with a false promise to get to security issues separately. 

Thirty years later we’re still waiting for even the slightest improvement in border security despite the threat of terrorism that has grown in the interim.

Schumer remained unwilling to negotiate on anything other than a standalone DACA bill.  And, like a petulant child with too much power, he shut the government down.

Trump made him pay a steep political price that becomes even more costly the closer to the midterm elections we get.

Tough Day: 1st Democrats Cave on DACA, Now They Find a huge ‘Surprise’ Hidden In Senate Bill Passed

DPD| From the jump, the government shutdown was something the Democrats wanted. They were using it as a weapon to make conservatives look bad. However, it backfired miserably and the American people clearly saw through the B.S. and realized that the Democrats were putting the needs of illegal immigrants before the needs of the military. That’s wrong and Schumer finally caved on Monday and re-opened the government without getting anything in return.

From Fox News:

The Senate on Monday voted 81-18 to break a Democratic filibuster on a stalled government spending bill, clearing the way for Congress to approve the stopgap measure and end the three-day government shutdown.

Democrats effectively backed off their opposition, after being given assurances from majority Republicans.

Before the vote, Senate Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer made clear that Democrats would supply the GOP-controlled Senate with the votes needed, in exchange for “fair” and immediate efforts to consider legislation that would protect illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children. It was a stark contrast from his position just a few days ago.

Republicans were already going to consider DACA. So, Democrats basically accomplished nothing with their temper tantrum.

Apparently, the progressive left isn’t happy about Schumer getting taken to the woodshed.

And now comes the icing on the cake.

Democrats are just finding out about a special little something Republicans managed to slip into the deal that they agreed to today.

From New York Times:

Congress is apparently not done cutting taxes, even after passing a $1.5 trillion tax overhaul last year.

The deal struck by Democrats and Republicans on Monday to end a brief government shutdown contains $31 billion in tax cuts, including a temporary delay in implementing three health care-related taxes.

So much winning.

Chuck Schumer really misplayed his hand here. Remember all the liberals out there who told us that Trump wasn’t actually a good dealmaker and wouldn’t actually be a good leader? Yeah, what happened to that? He completely outdueled Schumer and the Democrats on this one.

Here’s more.

From Fox News:

On “Outnumbered Overtime,” Sen. Cory Gardner argued that Democrats will have to explain to the American people why the nearly three-day government shutdown was necessary. He said the “same basic offer” was available to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Friday night but it was rejected

Tammy Bruce said on “Outnumbered Overtime” that this was a “fiasco” for Democrats and they wanted to end it as fast as possible.

“This was an indication for the first time that Republicans weren’t getting nailed with blame for something. … Perhaps the president’s tweets helped. The media seemed to be a little confused about how to carry this. … The facts were bad for the Democrats.”

You’d think that Schumer would be a little more prepared for a situation like this given his experience but clearly, Trump and Republicans in Congress were able to outmaneuver him. Basically, they kicked the can down the road until the next showdown but Democrats now know that they aren’t going to get everything they want. In fact, they are going to have to make some concessions. Is border wall funding coming soon? Sure looks like it.


Donald Blindsides Liberal 9th Circuit Court With Ingenious Maneuver

Since Trump entered office, he’s been defied by rogue judges. These judges have overstepped their authority to block the President’s Constitutional authority.

Radical, activist judges appointed by Obama have abused the little power they have. They have allowed their bias and corrupt politics to interfere with the authority of the White House.

In recent cases, they have been knocked down by the Supreme Court. At least that court still respects the law of the land.

Now it looks like more rogue judges will get their butts handed to them, care of the Trump administration.

From Western Journalism:

The Department of Justice will appeal directly to the Supreme Court after a federal judge in California ordered the Trump administration to maintain the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, an Obama-era amnesty policy that extends legal status to 800,000 illegal aliens who arrived in the U.S. as children.

The department will bypass the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which has jurisdiction in the case, and appeal directly to the high court, a rare procedural move.

“It defies both law and common sense for DACA — an entirely discretionary non-enforcement policy that was implemented unilaterally by the last administration after Congress rejected similar legislative proposals and courts invalidating the similar DAPA policy — to somehow be mandated nationwide by a single district court in San Francisco,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement announcing the appeal.

Liberals don’t care about law and order. They only care about getting their way. Like spoiled children, they fight to get the upper hand. No matter what.

If they can’t bamboozle people into voting for their candidates, they will use the courts. Whatever means to control the will of the American people. For far too long they’ve mocked our laws and way of life.

At least with this administration, they’re not taking it lying down.

Jeff Sessions is not going to let one court or judge jeopardize the safety of all Americans. These courts have zero right to uphold an Obama-era policy. It is Trump’s right to overturn it if he sees fit. The move by this federal judge is a massive overstep of power. The Supreme Court will most-likely agree.

But don’t expect this to be the end. Democrats will violate our laws to get their way. Be it through judges or outright scandal–they will force their agenda.

It’s high time we said enough.
