Shutdown showdown: White House says
it won’t negotiate with Senate Dems

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/20/2018 12:45:34 AM

The White House says it will not negotiate with the Democrats on immigration until the end of the federal government shutdown. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that, “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.” She adds, “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.” The government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to pass a spending deal. Sanders says, “Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown,” adding,

Sounds like President Trump is ignoring the histrionics of Chucky Schumer and his dRATS lemmings. Get out the easy chair and the popcorn. This may be a fun ride.

Sadly, you know the MSM will be spinning this to blame Trump and the Republicans within minutes.

But we know better.

Let´s just hope the sheeple realize the difference...

Perfect. Force that piece of schumer to fold up and do what he should have done tonight.

If it takes a month, OK, fine.

Schumer HAS TO LOSE in this.

HAS TO.

On Friday, Rush Limbaugh spoke about the Democrats being offered everything they want, but refusing to avert the shutdown for reasons that include wanting to take focus off the great economy, and as a distraction to avert media coverage of the FISA warrant memo. On Friday, a BBC World News journalist noted that if the shutdown does occur, it will be on the one year anniversary of President Trump’s inauguration. That noteworthy observation serves to raise the question of whether or not coincidence and opportunity have been seized by Democrats to taint that historical and meaningful date for President Trump.

Liberal Democrats are playing hard ball as there are too many potential future socialist oriented Democrat voters out here in the massive illegal alien population group that they do not want to allow to get away. Since 1965 the Democrats have been using the nation’s very liberal immigration system that they have shaped as a Democrat foreign born voter multiplier that has provided them many millions of votes. The wimpy Republicans allowed that to happen for decades because of all the cheap foreign labor that has been coming into the country that can be hired by Republican supporting business interests who fund many Republican political campaigns.

President Trump’s apparent negative response so far to calls for future massive illegal alien amnesties is a big reason why the Democrats and the Republican Never-Trumpers have tried to sabotage Trump and his Administration from the get-go. Right now many in Congress are supporting the special interests who want more sure Democrat voters and more legalized cheap foreign labor. The problem is that Trump was not elected to continue to go along with such unsound special interest driven public policies that have he affect of encouraging more mass uncontrolled illegal immigration instead of discouraging it and stopping it. The current Democrat position of putting illegal aliens in front of the American people and the Armed Forces is bound to come up the loser.

Well, we can know that this "shutdown" is not going to follow the usual dynamic the Dems are counting on. This administration will fight back and not succumb to the predictable media spin. The rubber really does meet the road here. PDT and co. cannot fully control the Democrat/MSM narrative, but they can dilute it by forcefully and consistently presenting the country with the facts.

Okay, now the democrats have shown their hand to the American people. Illegals over American citizens. Now it is time for Republicans to go out there and pound this truth home. Clearly, the President gave them every opportunity to come to the negotiating table and they chose this path. The Republicans can win on this issue if they stay focused and do not blink. Get to the microphones boys and girls and make the case. I hope the President sends out Mr. Mulvaney every day to set the record straight and inform the American people about what is going on and how this administration is working to diminish the hurt the Schumer Shutdown is causing innocent people. Now it is all about the messaging. Seize the day, Republicans. What’s it going to be, American citizens or illegal aliens. Pound that home.

Please keep in mind that all this is from the same party that gave us Revrum Wright’s feckless “God-Damn America”-hating, jug-eared, tone-deaf, purple-lipped, incompetent, lazy, vacationing, golfing, partying, vindictive, arrogant, self-absorbed, stumbling, narcissistic, sarcastic, corrupt, backstabbing, stone-walling, out-of-touch, stair-prancing, Gay-obsessed, dope-smoking, pot-headed, momjeans-wearing, shame gland missing, Peace-Prize stealing, no-records, two-bit, finger-pointing, belly-aching, Bush-blaming, wildly-spending, Treasury-looting, economy-wrecking, healthcare-destroying, process-circumventing, Benghazi bullshitting, selfie-posing, celebrity gad-fly, Deserter-honoring, ISIS appeasing, Iran-Funding, Jihad-coddling, taqiyah sunrise-drinking, weak, smidgen-toed, dithering, lawless, divisive, autocratic, sociopathic, phony baloney, plastic banana republic, Radical, Bomb-Throwing, Communist-Organizing Marxist, Muzlim Mallard disguised as a Black man who shut down WWII monuments for veterans, the same party who destroyed our health care system, from the same party who did not have even ONE party member who would vote FOR tax cuts, from the same party who just wants to bolster THEIR voter base solely in the interest of their own political power.
All while they tell us they’re just there for the little guy –
“Wherever there’s wrong-doing, We’ll be there!”
“Wherever there’s injustice, We’ll be there!”
“Wherever there’s corruption, We’ll be there!”
“And wherever there’s a bunch of big guys beating up

… and now we know the real reason why:
Because it´s anything to help Illegals!
Anything to Weaken America!
Anything to Screw-Over Americans!

They will express outrage over the content of his tweets but the truth will be out there and they will once again show themselves to be completely unhinged.

Good.

Having listened late last night / early this morning to both Mitch McConnell´s conciliatory speech and Chuck Schumer´s vicious attack on the Senate floor, the attitude of both is apparent. Now you know why I call Schumer “Senator Satan”.

Like the 1995 Gingrich shutdown, the 2018 Schumer Shutdown will benefit the nation in the long run, but for opposite reasons. The House stopgap bill was far too generous, and should not have offered long-term funding in it. What Abba Eban said about the Arabs: the minority Democrats did not “miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity” to get a lot of what they wanted.

Now it is time to take items OFF the table, rather than making any more concessions. Make it clear that the longer the Dems obstruct, the LESS they will get.

The Dems will blink, with elections looming and an angry public, many their own constituents, ready to extract revenge – on them.

As to the nation: it will not only survive but it will prosper. More government waste can be cut out. Low cost loans, if needed, can cover delayed military pay – they are very low risk for lenders. As the economy continues to accelerate, bonuses can more than make up for the interest.

We can only hope that bureaucrat unions will strike, so that their members - like PATCO in 1981 – can be fired.

And the sinister Machiavellian scheme of Senator Satan and his vile Democrat comrades to flood the nation with more illegal alien voters (SQUATters, not DREAMers - and their chain migration “relatives”) will have been thwarted.

I think the Democrats believe that shutting down the government will hurt the economy and offset any benefit the tax cuts will generate. Stop and think about that. They really don´t care about illegals but they do worry that President Trump will get credit for the economic recovery in progress. They want to stop that asap! So the Democrats will shutdown the government to hurt the economy and those working in it and could care less that out military goes unpaid! What a loathsome, radical, leftist party the msm and Democrats have become!

Perfect. I predict Trump will start eliminating those agencies of the government which have been running the swamp and pushing the communist/socialist agenda, and contracting or privatizing them with private sector companies that can to a better job more efficiently.

Start with the health care system. There is enough Money flowing in Medicare/medicaid and enough primary care physicians who have left primary care because it is no longer viable, that a better, simpler, health care system can be built: This would do two things -- divert people away from the broken system, leaving Obama Care and the greedy insurance companies to rot, save the government money, and eliminate all the free health care we are giving illegals.

Leave people in charge who know the value of an earned dollar to manage those dollars, and get rid of the people who can´t manage money because they think "the rich" should pay for everything.

Make it legal (since the government is shut down) for Medicare/Medicaid recipients to pay cash for their services and watching the value of their dollar, and watch the fraud committed by so many non-American born physicians dry up. There is fraud committed by U.S born providers as well, but from my vantage point, there has always been a preponderance of fraud and sub-standard care by people who have no ties to the locals they serve.

Again we see the ignorance of democrats. There are 51 senate republicans. 60 votes are needed. So you need at least 9 democrats support to keep govt open. So you see what should be obvious even to a brain dead democrat. Schumer, a pathetic scum bag, will shut the govt down because democrats support ILLEGAL ALIENS more than they support funding our military. Think about that for a minute. Are democrats that freakin stupid? I guess so.

The Lying Fake News LSM can spin their falsehoods all they want. We have 62,000,000 Trump supporters who know the truth about the them and the Demorats.

All the Demorats, the PC Liberals, and the RINOS in Congress are putting all Americans at risk.

Those who would shutdown the Government are putting the illegal aliens ahead of all of American´s safety.

I say keep the Government shut down until the Rats and the RINOS put Americans First.

The DACArachas cannot be legalized without stopping chain migration because they will turn around and legalize their parents.

I would like to also see a national discussion on Anchor Babies. At least DAPA was stopped by the courts and then eliminated by Donaldus Magnus without a peep from the Commiecrats. Start deportations with the DAPArachas.

The Democrat Party crosses our President at their own risk. Donald Trump is a counterpuncher and this will be fun to watch.

Trump on the 2013 shutdown on ´Fox and Friends´:

"Who is going to take the blame? In the board room here, who´s getting fired? Who is going to bear the brunt of the responsibility if indeed there´s a shutdown of our government? If you say who gets fired, it always has to be the top. Problems start from the top and they have to get solved from the top and the president is the leader and he´s got to get everybody in a room and he´s got to lead."

#33 Medicare recipients pay premiums. Medicaid is like welfare. There are major differences.

#7 Hoping that the shutdown lasts “...a looong time...” ignores the military troops who are most needy. Lower ranked men and women are barely able to survive as it is. Try telling creditors that you’ll pay when politicians decide to write checks again.
Democrats should have to pay bonuses to troops!

You can´t do business with Democrats or RINOs. They operate in bad faith, and they lie about everything.

The Democrats will do or say anything to distract from the astounding first year accomplishments of President Trump - and he is exactly correct. Democrats are choosing illegal immigrants over the sacrifices of our military.

Wish that I could see just one media headline that read, "Ugly Democrat Agenda Shuts Down Government".

About 70 AM this morning the sun came up. I was totally shocked that Mr Sun hadn´t gotten the message that the government was shut down. Of course today being a Saturday, in the normal scheme of things the government would be shut down anyhow.

Trump shouldn´t be negotiating with Chuckie anyway; that´s McConnell"s job.

Aboard USS Carl Vinson, Philippines - U.S. forces are undeterred by China´s military buildup on man-made islands in the South China Sea and will continue patrolling the strategic, disputed waters wherever "international law allows us," said a Navy officer aboard a mammoth U.S. aircraft carrier brimming with F-18 fighter jets. Lt. Cmdr. Tim Hawkins told The Associated Press on board the USS Carl Vinson that the Navy has carried out routine patrols at sea and in the air in the region for 70 years to promote security and guarantee the unimpeded flow of trade that´s crucial for Asian and U.S. economies.

Troops from South Korea joined their Thai and U.S counterparts on Saturday in an amphibious vehicle landing drill as part of Southeast Asia´s largest multinational military exercise. The 300 soldiers from South Korea who joined 2,000 U.S. Marines and Thai soldiers in eastern Thailand marked the highest numbers participating from the East Asian country since it joined the Cobra Gold exercise in 2010, and comes at a time when tensions are particularly high on the Korean Peninsula. Tensions in the Koreas primarily involve concerns over North Korea´s nuclear capability, which has led to saber-rattling declarations

US National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster called Saturday on the international community to act against Iranian proxies in the Middle East. “This network of proxies is becoming more and more capable as Iran [places] more and more capable weapons, more and more destructive weapons into these networks, so the time is now to act against Iran,” he said (Snip) Israel will continue to act against Iran in Syria if Tehran persists in developing its military presence there, the prime minister said. “Iran should not build its military bases there – we’ll act against it,” he said.

Two weeks ago we had the TV financial follies, screaming about the sell-off and how the Trump rally was over — despite 13 consecutive months of gains, a record. The bats came out for commentators’ favorite piñata, the president. Then stocks had their best week since 2011, rallying straight back up about 1,700 quick points. On Tuesday, the intellectually lightweight “analysts and economists” were nibbling their nails in worry over the “CPI inflation” number, which showed real price increases for the first time in quite a while. And it’s true that bond yields (which move in the opposite direction of bond prices) backed up to

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) struck six Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip on Saturday evening in response to the detonation of an explosive device on the Gaza border earlier in the day that wounded four IDF soldiers, two severely. Targets included a Hamas-built offensive terror tunnel from the Zeitoun neighborhood of Gaza which was dug towards Israeli territory. Another target stuck included a Hamas military compound in the Netzarim area which included weapons manufacturing sites (Snip) “Hamas is responsible for the event and its consequences, as well as for everything happening in and out of the Gaza Strip,

Trump Is Making MS-13 Stronger

San Salvador - Last week, President Trump torpedoed an immigration deal put forward by a bipartisan group of senators. The Senate responded by rejecting his own, harsher plan. By the end of the week, the immigration debate seemed deadlocked between the fate of the Dreamers and the fate of the wall. But one thing is clear: Any plan that purports to make America safer by making it harder for immigrants to obtain legal status and increasing deportations will actually do the opposite. These proposals, embraced by Mr. Trump, are the same decades-old policies that helped transform Mr. Trump’s archenemy, Mara Salvatrucha

The FBI — already facing congressional investigations over its handling of the Russia probe and other political matters — was hit this week with a new batch of inquiries from lawmakers about its failure to act on tips that might have prevented the massacre at a high school in Parkland, Fla. On Friday, the chairs of three powerful congressional committees that oversee the bureau sent letters demanding briefings on the FBI’s misstep, and others lambasted the bureau for its apparent failure. The bureau acknowledged that it received a warning on Jan. 5 that Nikolas Cruz had a desire to kill and might attack a school,

Tulare County, CA - Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux said, "it´s a good day," because school officials and law enforcement intervened early enough to prevent another tragedy. According to the Tulare County Sheriff´s Department, a 13-year-old student at Pixley Middle School was making threats to "shoot up the school." The student was then transported and booked at the Tulare County Juvenile Detention Facility on charges of criminal threats. Sheriff Boudreaux says school officials were alerted to the threat through an online homework site and contacted the Sheriff´s Office.

White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly announced an overhaul Friday of the government’s system for managing security-clearance investigations, after the embarrassing case of a top aide to President Trump who kept working amid domestic-abuse allegations. In a five-page memo, Mr. Kelly acknowledged mistakes and put the responsibility on the FBI and Justice Department to hand-deliver updates on background investigations. “The American people deserve a White House staff that meets the highest standards and that has been carefully vetted — especially those who work closely with the president or handle sensitive national

Ankara, Turkey - About the only thing the top diplomats from the United States and Turkey could agree upon on Friday was that their countries’ relations had reached a crisis point, as the two sides delayed negotiations until next month on issues that at times have brought the two NATO allies close to confrontation on the battlefield. (Snip) Gradually worsening for years, relations between the United States and Turkey reached a new low in recent weeks as Turkey launched an offensive into western Syria to dislodge Kurdish forces there. While the Kurds have provided the bulk of the ground troops for the United States-led coalition battling

A South Carolina high school student was arrested Thursday after allegedly posting "Florida Round 2" on Snapchat-- an obvious reference to Wednesday´s school schooting--but insisted that the post was simply a "joke." Officials said the post, which was sent via Snapchat, showed a teen wearing a partial mask and holding what looked like an assault rifle. Beneath the photo was the caption, “Round 2 of Florida tomorrow.” Officials at Broome High School received an anonymous tip from a student about a possible threat, Spartanburg School District Three spokeswoman Sherri Horton said.

SEC blocks Chicago Stock Exchange

U.S. regulators on Thursday killed the politically sensitive sale of the Chicago Stock Exchange (CHX) to a group led by China-based investors, saying a lack of information on the would-be buyers threatened the ability to properly monitor the exchange after the deal. The move by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) ends a two-year battle to gain approval for the sale and underscores the more hostile environment facing Chinese buyers under the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump. Trump brought the CHX deal up twice during the election campaign as an example of how jobs and wealth were leaving the

Chris Hughes, a co-founder of Facebook and chair of the Economic Security Project, has a proposal to attack the problem of rising income inequality through a basic income, a system of wealth distribution in which people receive a standard salary just for being alive. And he wants to pay for it by raising taxes on the one percent. (Snip) To pay for this, Hughes proposes bringing tax rates on the top 1% of earners in the country to 50% — which is in line with the historical average, he said. The idea is to provide people with a reliable income

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:

Outspoken leftist and "Grey´s Anatomy" star Ellen Pompeo challenged Fox News host Laura Ingraham, whom she referred to as a "b****", to a physical fight on Friday. For real. "Someone tell this b**** to meet me outside," wrote Pompeo, referring to Ingraham, via Twitter. "Im [sic] so not in the mood for playing nice or polite this week." (Snip) The actress was reacting to a video clip, which she quote-tweeted, of Ingraham suggesting NBA star LeBron James quit the political activism and "shut up and dribble" — a reference to her 15-year-old book titled "Shut Up & Sing." Pompeo continued the taunting,

Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway is urging the NRA to find a new home for its annual convention. He says the meeting is not appropriate in Dallas in the wake of last week´s school shooting in Florida. Caraway also points to the past tragedies in Dallas, including the 2016 ambush that killed five Dallas officers, and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

GOP Utah Senate candidate Mitt Romney is changing his tune on President Donald Trump from where he was one year ago. Trump endorsed Romney late Monday evening, giving the former failed presidential candidate “full support and endorsement.” Romney responded almost immediately, thanking the president for his kind words and for backing him the upcoming election. “Thank you Mr. President for the support. I hope that over the course of the campaign I also earn the support and endorsement of the people of Utah,” Romney tweeted late Monday evening. Romney’s statement Monday is strikingly different from ones he has previously made

Deschamps, a longtime family friend of the Cruz brothers, began looking after them after their adoptive mother, Lynda, died of pneumonia in November.

Los Angeles County´s homeless population is increasing faster than the supply of new housing, even with the addition of thousands of beds in the last two years and millions of dollars beginning to flow in from two ballot measures targeting the crisis, according to a long-awaited report by the region´s homelessness agency. The report showed that officials two years ago far underestimated how much new housing would be needed when they asked city and county voters to approve the tax measures.

“From my cold, dead hands!” – Charlton Heston Liberals love to fantasize about confiscating every gun in America. It may be their most beautiful dream. Liberals get control of the Supreme Court and ignore the Second Amendment; Washington makes gun ownership illegal; almost all the guns come pouring in or are destroyed; a few hapless Jim Bobs who won’t get in line get shot up by the cops and then the government is free to do anything it wants and if people don’t like it, well, what are they going to do about it without guns?
