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.

Several Jewish parents expressed outrage over the weekend after children at a New York City school were instructed to observe a moment of silence for the dozens of Palestinians killed during clashes along the Gaza border. The announcement of the Tuesday tribute at Beacon High School in Hell’s Kitchen was made by a student over the school’s PA system. It was not clear whether the decision had been approved by the school principal. The New York Post, which reported the story, said it was not able to reach principal Ruth Lacey for comment. Parents said they didn’t understand why the school chose to suddenly take a stance on the

Former Education Secretary Arne Duncan said parents should pull their children out of school until Congress passes gun control legislation. "What if no children went to school until gun laws changed to keep them safe?" Duncan tweeted Saturday. Duncan, who served as secretary under President Obama, called the step "tragically necessary." "My family is all in if we can do this at scale. Parents, will you please join us?" he said. Duncan´s plea comes one day after 10 people were killed in a mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas.

Nathan McClure served in Baghdad at the height of the Iraq War. When he was severely wounded in 2007, ending his military career in the US Army, it was thanks to a weapon called an EFP — or explosively formed penetrator — piercing his Humvee. (Snip) The surprise victory of the 44-year-old Shiite cleric, whose militias led two uprisings against US troops during the bloodiest years of the occupation, has rattled some US veterans and reopened frustrations for others. While Sadr can’t become prime minister himself, his coalition became the frontrunner in Iraq’s parliamentary election May 12.

Washington/Kabul - U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear accord and re-impose sanctions on Tehran threatens to derail a project to help build Afghanistan’s economy, endangering a key goal of the U.S. strategy to end America’s longest war. The Indian-backed Chabahar port complex in Iran is being developed as part of a new transportation corridor for land-locked Afghanistan that could potentially open the way for millions of dollars in trade (Snip) Building Afghanistan’s economy would also slash Kabul’s dependence on foreign aid and put a major dent in the illicit opium trade, the Taliban’s main

A Cambridge professor with deep ties to American and British intelligence has been outed as an agent who snooped on the Trump presidential campaign for the FBI. Multiple media outlets have named Stefan Halper, 73, as the secret informant who met with Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos starting in the summer of 2016. The American-born academic previously served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations. The revelation, stemming from recent reports in which FBI sources admitted sending an agent to snoop on the Trump camp, heightens suspicions that the FBI was seeking to entrap

President Vladimir Putin on Friday vowed to oppose any actions from the Trump administration targeting Nord Stream 2, a pipeline project expected to significantly increase Russia’s natural gas exports to Europe. Mr. Putin defended the project in the wake of news outlets reporting this week that President Trump has pressured German Chancellor Angela Merkel to withdraw her support for the pipeline in lieu of possibly provoking a transatlantic trade war. “Donald is not just the U.S. president, he’s also a good, tough entrepreneur,” Mr. Putin said at a joint news conference held with Ms. Merkel in Sochi, The Moscow Times

The Illinois Senate’s overwhelming vote to allow sick students to take medical marijuana in school sends the proposal to Gov. Bruce Rauner for a decision on its fate. The state Senate voted 50-2 to allow students who qualify for medical marijuana to consume it on school premises, as long as they don’t smoke it and school officials agree that it won’t disrupt other students. The measure is named Ashley’s Law, for 12-year-old Ashley Surin of Schaumburg, who takes medical marijuana to treat the epilepsy she developed during chemotherapy treatments for leukemia. But her parents say the measure will benefit many more children

Washington - Melania Trump is back at the White House after an extended hospitalization for a kidney procedure. The White House says the first lady returned to the White House on Saturday morning. She had been at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center near Washington since having an embolization procedure Monday for an unspecified kidney condition that the White House said was benign. President Donald Trump visited his 48-year-old wife during several of the evenings that she was in the hospital. The first lady said Wednesday on Twitter that she was “feeling great.” She thanked the Walter Reed staff and

Cambridge Analytica LLC, the American branch of the embattled British-based data broker and political consultancy firm hired by President Trump’s 2016 election campaign, has filed for bankruptcy in the United States after coming under fire for collecting the personal information of millions of Facebook users without their knowledge. Along with a related company, SCL USA, Cambridge Analytica filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in federal court late Thursday, two months after news reports first revealed that the firm had quietly obtained the personal data of about 87 million Facebook users through a purported online personality

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

The man who is sixth in line to be king of Great Britain is getting married today and America has lost its mind. What does it mean to be sixth in the line of royal succession to an office that depends solely and exclusively on who your father is? It means that five family members have to die before you get the real goodies. Granted, those goodies are amazing. Who wouldn´t want to live in a thousand year old castle (too bad it´s in Scotland) or have dozens of "servants" cater to your every whim and need? But that lifestyle depends on people believing that you are deserving of such wealth and privilege because you happened to be

The civil war between the Fox News Channel news and opinion sides appears to be hardening with chief political anchor Bret Baier having joined the fray. On Thursday May 17, Baier, a 20-year high-profile veteran of Fox News, entered the lion’s den – one of the hearts of the anti-Trump Resistance – when he went on the ABC Television Network daytime women’s chat show The View. His guest shot in “enemy territory” was a prominent stop on the media tour to promote his new book on Reagan and Gorbachev, Three Days in Moscow.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the

"It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members of Congress to use their positions to learn the identity of an FBI source for the purpose of undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our election," Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement.
