President Trump Has Reached a
Compromise with Top Democrats on DACA

Time Magazine, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 9/13/2017 10:31:44 PM

Washington - The top House and Senate Democrats said Wednesday they had reached agreement with President Donald Trump to protect thousands of younger immigrants from deportation and fund some border security enhancements — not including Trump´s long-sought border wall. The deal announced by Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi following a White House dinner would enshrine protections for the nearly 800,000 immigrants brought illegally to this country as kids who had benefited from former President Barack Obama´s Deferred Action for Childhood

Comments:
This is going to get the ´Nattering nabobs of negativism´ going in DC and elsewhere. There is definitely going to be smoke over the swamp water tomorrow. Ink will be spilled in the press rooms and in the streets. Just wait for the White House press conference, ot Trump tweets first. And, bad blood is going to rise on both sides of the Congressional aisles.

The ball is in Congress’s court. Now it’s up to Schumer and Pelosi to talk it through the Congress. Republicans and Democrats.

What is the likelihood that that will happen?

Seems like solid news; Time explicitly says Pelosi and Schumer announced it.

Trump knew half a loaf is better than none. So do the Dems.

GOPe again seems clueless. You can almost hear Mitch and Paul asking "What just happened?"

Ryan and McConnell caught with their pants down. This needs to be legislated, not XO´ed. Since the GOP is in the majority, and these a-holes were going to cave anyway, Trump just scored bigly. Lets bring this to We The People and let us have our say.

Virtually the same as the Fox News article. Much is from AP.

Democratic congressional leaders emerged from a meeting with President Donald Trump Wednesday vowing to pursue an agreement protecting immigrants who were brought illegally into the U.S. as children from deportation.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/09/13/schumer-pelosi-say-have-deal-with-trump-to-protect-dreamers.html

As I said, now it’s up to them to “pursue an agreement”. Any law has to come from Congress. Trump hasn’t given away a thing. Congress can still go thumbs down. And he’ll get his part of the deal. Meanwhile his wall is outside of this deal.

Someday I hope those who need to think from a to b to c to d to….. and trust the media headlines for their facts will come to understand how this president works. And that the media misleads when it isn’t outright lying.

Those who don’t read and comprehend what they are reading, what the words really say and don’t say (did you hear a quote from President Trump?), are in factual nowheresville.

Strategy. It’s about strategy.

For those of you who mock the news sources used, first understand. We are a "breaking news" website. There were no other sources in the minutes it took to prepare and post it. In fact, Time updated the article, causing me change shorter version. Second, here are now the ledes by other sources. Pray tell, if any one of them was up, and Fox News isn´t amongst them, should the story just wait till then?

"Pelosi, Schumer on dinner with Pres. Trump: Both sides have "agreed" to immigration reform package and border security, "excluding the wall" (ABC News)

"Democrats said they had an agreement with Trump to protect "Dreamers." The White House was more muted" (New York Times)

"Trump & Dems agree to DACA fix and resolve to iron out border-security plan, excluding wall, Schumer and Pelosi say (CNN)

Democrats say they have a tentative deal with Trump on young migrants known as "dreamers" (Bloomberg News)

"Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer announce DACA agreement with Pres. Trump" (CBS News)

"Trump, Democrats reach an agreement to protect young immigrants and boost border security that excludes wall funding" (Wall Street Journal)

Still nothing from Fox News or Washington Post.

From the NYT:

In its own statement, the White House was far more muted, mentioning DACA as merely one of several issues that were discussed, including tax reform and infrastructure. It called the meeting, which came a week after the president struck a stunning spending-and-debt deal with the Democratic leaders, “a positive step toward the president’s strong commitment to bipartisan solutions.”

But the bipartisan comity appeared to have its limits. In a tweet, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, disputed the Democrats’ characterization of Mr. Trump’s stance on the border wall. “While DACA and border security were both discussed, excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to,” she wrote.

So already the dissent has begun over what was really discussed...

I don´t like where this is headed. I´m afraid Ivanka´s influence is showing up here. Maybe Trump doesn´t want a second term and he´s throwing his base under the bus. Perhaps its just too much trouble to do what we thought he would do. Who knows. But this is not giving me a warm fuzzy feeling.

#7, this is a strategy for disaster.

If true, throwing it to Congress is deflecting responsibility for what Mr. Trump said in his campaign.

One can have a change of heart and a conscience that guides you, but if this is true and Chuck U. Schumer and Crazy Nancy P are dictating the terms of the "deal", we will be sold out again due to a "strategy".

Confidence and faith in the integrity of our President just so he can get a "win" is wavering as he tries to undercut the promises he made to get elected.

What about the forgotten man he mention in his inaugural speech?

Now he wants to raise taxes on many who are not rich while calling it a tax cut. This is beginning to sound like more redistribution of wealth.

"Compromise" can get deals done, but there were no ironclad promises to control spending us into oblivion...

THIS is why it is dangerous to even talk with dems. It´s like taking with "Russians". If you were in the same room with a Russian, who KNOWS what evil you were plotting. Besides that, the Russian may report things about the meeting that are not true and crazy people accept it as true. A simple greeting and a handshake becomes an "agreement" of some type.

Dems are the same way. You meet them and you shake their hand. One of them mentions they are concerned about building a border wall. There is no further discussion about it and other topics are discussed. You say "I would like to be able to work together to address the "Dreamers". Later the dems report you have made a deal and the wall is not part of it. What the heck???? There is NO deal for the wall to be part of yet all the media now tries to pen you into the "agreement" you made, that you never made.

The dems fake it up as they go along. It´s all they can do. They are toxic. Every Republican trying to work with the dems gets burned, now or eventually.

Free speech week: The circus is back at
Berkeley (and there are plenty of clowns)
Fox News, by John Yoo, Steven F. Hayward,    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/22/2017 4:31:30     Post Reply
The circus is returning to the University of California, Berkeley, as a sequel to rioting in February by black-clad protesters angered by the campus visit of conservative speaker Milo Yiannapolous. The goal of the protestors then and now is simple: demonize and silence conservatives. Shamefully, the Berkeley rioting was permitted by a hands-off attitude by university administrators. After a now-departed chancellor and his aides ordered University of California police to stand aside, rioters set fires, inflicted $100,000 in damage to university buildings, and prevented Yiannapolous from speaking.

Seoul, South Korea - North Korea has long cultivated an image of defiant belligerence, punctuating its propaganda and diplomacy with colorful threats, insults and bluffs. But Kim Jong-un’s personal statement released on Friday, and his foreign minister’s threat to test a nuclear weapon over the Pacific Ocean, represent a new level of brinkmanship by the government. (Snip) The North Korean news media carried photographs of Mr. Kim sitting in his office and reading his statement, but his voice was not broadcast. On the country’s state-run Central TV, a female announcer read his statement.

It said the strike led to a fire, with no casualties or disruptions at Damascus International Airport reported.

President Trump on Friday labeled Kim Jong-un a “mad man,” shortly after the North Korean leader had called him a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard.” “Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn’t mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!” Mr. Trumptweeted. Mr. Trump was apparently responding to the North Korean leader’s reaction to the president’s address to the United Nations. “Far from making remarks of any persuasive power that can be viewed to be helpful to defusing tension, he made unprecedented rude nonsense one has never heard from any of his

New York - North Korea may conduct the most powerful test of a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean in its possible "highest-level" actions against the United States, the North´s top diplomat said Thursday.

Washington - The Trump administration is preparing to dismantle key Obama-era limits on drone strikes and commando raids outside conventional battlefields, according to officials familiar with internal deliberations. The changes would lay the groundwork for possible counterterrorism missions in countries where Islamic militants are active but the United States has not previously tried to kill or capture them. (Snip) The policy paves the way for broader and more frequent operations against Al Qaeda, the Islamic State and other jihadists.

For the more than five million Puerto Ricans living on the United States mainland, it was bad enough to watch news reports on Wednesday of Hurricane Maria ripping through an island where relatives and friends lived. What made it worse was not knowing how their loved ones had fared. With the entire power grid knocked out and with more than 95 percent of wireless cell sites out of service, communication was all but impossible on Thursday, and an already emotional day became even harder for the Puerto Rican diaspora.

President Trump persuaded China to freeze all financial transactions with North Korea and ordered a new round of U.S. sanctions Thursday, closing out his first U.N. General Assembly with a major diplomatic victory in his efforts to curb Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons and missile programs short of war. In a carefully choreographed strategy deployed from the shadow of the United Nations headquarters in New York, Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin called the head of China’s central bank very early Thursday to alert him that Mr. Trump was preparing an executive order to sanction any financial institutions doing business

ABC has greenlit a new sitcom tentatively titled "Sanctuary Family" about an undocumented family living in the U.S. The network says the show will follow the pandemonium that unfolds when a married couple allows their undocumented nanny and her family to live with them. The guests put a strain on the marriage of the host family but they eventually learn that “the differences both families have aren’t as significant as their similarities,” according to the description provided by ABC. Undocumented immigrants are foreign-born people who don’t have a legal right to be or remain in the United States and the

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used his opening monologue Thursday to once again lambast supporters of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill -- and at one point called a Republican senator from Louisiana an "inbred." The host of ABC´s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has emerged as a strong celebrity advocate for universal health care since his infant son had to undergo open-heart surgery in April. Kimmel made an announcement about his son during a memorable monologue at the time and has taken up the cause ever since. Part of his goal is for every child in the U.S. to have the same access to
