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.

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.

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

CIA Argues The Public Can’t

Intelligence officials can selectively release classified information to trusted journalists while withholding the same information from other citizens who request it through open records laws, CIA lawyers argued Wednesday. In a motion filed in New York federal court, the CIA claimed that limited disclosures to reporters do not waive national security exemptions to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. Intelligence and law enforcement agencies frequently deny records requests on the basis of protecting sensitive national security information, one of nine exemptions written into the federal FOIA law.

New York - Two men, including a former teacher at a Harlem school, were arrested Thursday, accused of building bombs in the Bronx, a federal criminal complaint says. Christian Toro, the former teacher, and Tyler Toro are charged with manufacturing a destructive device and the distribution of explosive materials to a minor. Authorities found bomb-making materials, including metal spheres and chemicals to make the explosive material thermite, after executing a search warrant on the Toros´ apartment. Both suspects have been arraigned and remanded on the charges, two sources with direct knowledge of the

Coral Springs, FL - Seventeen people were killed and multiple people were injured when a former student opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida on Wednesday, prompting a massive police response and manhunt as frightened students hid in their classrooms. "It´s catastrophic, there really are no words," Sheriff Scott Israel said. CBS News has confirmed that the suspect has been identified as Nikolas Cruz, 19.

Clinton White House had its

A backlog in security clearances for sensitive White House jobs is not new. Just ask the Clinton administration. More than a year into Bill Clinton’s first term, of 1,044 White House personnel, nearly 100 had no security clearance at all, according to press reports in 1994. The scandal alarmed both Republicans and Democrats on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, who wrote to CIA Director James Woolsey on March 17, 1994. (Snip) And there was a problem with basic passes. Nearly one-third of all staff lacked permanent grounds and building passes. The Washington Times reported that the blame lied with an

Planned Parenthood is launching a counterattack in response to significant pro-life gains on the state and federal levels. The organization will push legislation to expand access to abortion in more than a dozen states this week and hopes to have initiatives in all 50 states by the end of the year. Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said the nation’s largest abortion provider has been “marching, mobilizing, and organizing,” and now it’s time to channel that into “real policy change.”

(Video) - Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is running for the Senate in Utah. Three people with direct knowledge of the plan tell the Associated Press Romney will formally launch his campaign in a video on Thursday. His first public appearance as a Senate candidate is scheduled for Friday in Utah. The people who provided the information asked for anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about Romney´s plans in advance.

(Video) - South Carolina Republican Trey Gowdy says that the House Oversight Committee is set to investigate the issues surrounding security clearances in the fallout of former White House staff secretary Rob Porter´s resignation. Gowdy confirmed to CNN on Wednesday that the panel launched its probe Tuesday night. "We are directing inquiries to people that we think have access to information we don´t have. You can call it official. You can call it unofficial. Those words don´t mean anything to me. What means something to me is I´m going to direct questions to the FBI that I expect them to answer," said Gowdy.

NBA star LeBron James says President Trump doesn’t “give a fuck” about Americans. "The No. 1 job in America ... is someone who doesn´t understand the people, and really don´t give a f**k about the people,” James said in a video recorded last month with ESPN’s Cari Champion and fellow NBA player Kevin Durant. The video was filmed as Trump had come under scrutiny for reportedly referring to some countries as “shithole countries,” prompting Champion to address Trump’s “racist comments.” "It´s not even a surprise when he says something," James said. "It´s like, laughable. It´s laughable and it´s scary." “While

President Trump’s legal team is citing a three-pillar argument to convince investigators, and the public, that President Trump shouldn’t sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller. Mr. Mueller wants access to the president as part of an inquiry into suspected obstruction of justice in the firing of the special counsel’s longtime friend, FBI Director James B. Comey, in May. The president’s legal team has resisted but not given a firm no. Here are the arguments against an interview. • The White House has given Mr. Mueller unprecedented access to White House documents and people. • There is no stated crime. •

President Trump’s needling of Senator Elizabeth Warren’s unsupported claim to Native American ancestry has hit its mark. Yesterday, the Massachusetts senator made an unannounced appearance before the National Congress of American Indians, the oldest national organization that claims to represent the interests of Native Americans and repeated her previously debunked claims in a particularly offensive manner. (snip) her claim implying that her paternal grandparents were racists in opposing marriage to an Indian-heritage girl is false and despicable, besmirching the reputation of long-dead ancestors for political gain.

Nineteen-year-old Nikolas Cruz -- who mowed down Parkland, Florida, high school students and teachers, killing 17 and wounding many others -- had been thrown out of the same school for threatening his classmates. He had been bragging to them about having a personal armory and implying he would use it, justifiably frightening them. Subsequently he posted a photo of that armory, including assault weaponry, on Instagram as well as a photo of a target riddled with bullet holes with the recommendation to try it as "group therapy." He also posted photos of dead animals, well known as a hallmark of serial

Revelations that the FBI had been warned about Florida high school shooter Nikolaus Cruz fit an all-too-familiar pattern, in which apparent law enforcement errors have preceded mass murders. The FBI was warned about Cruz after he posted on YouTube saying he was going to become a “professional school shooter.” The agency said they couldn’t identify the user who made the threat, despite Cruz posting under his own name. Five months later, Cruz pulled the fire alarm at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and began shooting his former classmates with his AR-15. Other mass shooters and terrorists were similarly on the FBI’s radar

WASHINGTON – The former head of the nation’s intelligence communities disputed Thursday Vice President Mike Pence’s assertion that Russia’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 elections did not affect the outcome. “It stretches credulity given the magnitude, scope and depth of the Russian efforts that they didn’t have impact on individual voter decisions,” former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told National Public Radio. Clapper was asked about a comment Pence made Wednesday during an interview with the news web site Axios. "Irrespective of efforts that were made in 2016 by foreign powers,” Pence said, “it is the universal conclusion of our intelligence
