Budget deal Message

This budget deal is Democrats’ way of saying “FU Trump. We Heart Open Borders. Here’s what you have to work with. Have a nice day!”

As small as it is, it comes with a qualifications.  For instance, no increase in the number of Border Patrol Agents.

As for the “barrier,” the legislation limits designs to only those that were in use two years ago, before Trump’s election. No Trump innovation, no new wall construction or design is permitted.

The legislation does not pay for the increase in beds the administration requested for detention facilities. Left up to what the House appropriated, they intend to continue the catch and release of illegal aliens, including those with criminal records. 

Let them sleep on the floor then. The ‘plus’ from that would be that it would be a negative incentive for others to come and crash the border. Which is currently estimated to be 60,000 per month. And, that they will not be released to prey on Americans and American Cities because Democrats won’t spring for a bed.

The House of Representatives is not responsible for the National Security. The Executive Branch is. That’s why President Trump has declared a National State of Emergency, to give him the means to fulfill his responsibility of keeping us safe.

Oddly, Nancy Pelosi and her Party are crying that Trump has overstepped his bounds by going around Congress. In reality, it is Congress that failed to provide funding necessary for national security, something they are not responsible for. By virtue of their actions, NOT funding national security as requested by the DHS, Border Patrol, and the President, Congress is the one interfering with business of the Executive Branch. Not the other way around.

Warren’s Dukakis Moment

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, trying to sell herself as your average beer-swigging multimillionaire former Harvard Law prof who’s a champion of the middle class, pops a bottle of beer. Pulled that cap off with her bare hands. The name Michael Dukakis comes to mind.

Wanting to appeal to the middle class, she pops a beer. Stereotype much? Hillary’s hot sauce. John Kerry tried to relate with ‘get me a hunting license’ line, in full camo. Odd how Democrats always pretend to be something they’re not.

Democrats And The Wall

Democrats say that a border wall won’t work, and is a waste of taxpayer money. They can’t know that because we’ve never had one. $5 billion the President is asking for is too much money? Yet they have no problem paying $113 billion A YEAR, and growing, to support illegal aliens already here.

And that doesn’t count the social cost of murders, robberies, kidnapping, human trafficking, and drugs they bring with them. 

No, their priority is not public safety or fiscal responsibility. Their priority two-fold. Resisting whatever Trump wants to do, and political power to the exclusion of about half the country.

“American Democracy”

Robert Reich, Sec. of Labor under Bill Clinton, is a gem. Says that Trump has ravaged “American democracy,” whatever that is. With the economy and labor market doing as well as it is, you’d have to look far and wide to see what it is that the Trump administration has ravaged.

In his world, the “ravaging” was on the Liberal agenda of his and his Party. Exactly what President Trump was elected to do. Trump branded it as Make America Great Again.

See, “American democracy” to Reich, is what the Left refer to as the way they want America to be, not constrained by the Constitution. To Reich and his fellow travelers, they want you to believe that their way is the right way, and, are entitled to keep it that way. Conservatism? Republicans? They’re an aberration. And otherwise, just evil.

I took the time to read the article that was in his Tweet, hoping to find what the ravaging of American democracy comment was about. Of course, nothing there. That’s just Bob suffering from TDS.

 

Dems Playing With A Losing Hand

So what are Democrats running on this election season? It isn’t “For the People.” Remember that? It’s Medicare For All. In other words, full blown socialized medicine at the expense of the economy, senior citizens, and everyone else.

That they chose a proven loser of an issue to run on, aside from Trump is the Devil, shows that their party is lost to the lunatic Left. Deaf and blind to the economy, employment, unemployment, your kids’ education, your safety, and our nation’s sovereignty.

The consequences of (God forbid) a Democrat majority in DC, will not only halt, but reverse the progress made since the Obama administration expired.  And, will turn the country into something resembling Venezuela. 

Curious how Democrats can, with a straight face, campaign on killing the economy and, fundamentally change America. “But everybody, including illegal aliens, will have ‘free’ health care. It’s a human right,” don’t you know?

It’s also curious how the same party, dishonest as it is, has not tried to claim credit for any of the progress in the short time President Trump has been in office. That trial balloon was when Obama took credit for the Trump economy. Then burst.

In the spirit of Halloween, Seema Verma, Administrator for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) tweeted this. “This year’s scariest Halloween costume goes to…

No excuse for sitting this one out. Too much is at stake. It’s all at stake. Two words, Vote Republican. The Democrats are playing with a losing hand.

Obama White House, Hook’em Up

I had forgotten all about President Obama’s White House giving polygraphs to staffers and spying on the media, to stop staffers from leaking to the media.  And in James Rosen’s case, his parents too.

What reminded me was Obama’s nose-in-the-air diatribe in Illinois the other day, about how President Trump calls out Fake News. See the difference between calling them out, and, using the intelligence apparatus of the country to prosecute the ‘free press?’ But the Carnival Barker would have you believe that Trump calling out ‘Fake News’ as Fake News is abusive of the Office of the President.

In Obama’s case, weaponizing the government to target political opponents is nothing new. Mainstream media just doesn’t cover news harmful to the political Left.

Democratic Party depends on a Dependent Class

And it all began with President Lyndon Johnson over the Civil Rights Act of 1964. His focus then was to try to stop the mass exodus of Black Americans moving to the Republican Party.

Democrats Reveal

Nothing like Democrats, and whatever Bernie Sanders is, coming out of the closet with their love affair for distributing your wealth. Government supplied everything.

The fact that he says that so many young people embrace Socialism is all on its own, if true, a testament to the failure of the education system our kids are subject to. Or victims of.

So predictable.

Security Clearance Smoke

The media reaction to President Trump pulling the security clearance from former CIA Director John Brennan, and considering doing same to other key participants as well, is interesting in two areas.

John Brennan, a CNN talking head, CNN, and their soul brothers in the media call it a restriction on his freedom of speech. I haven’t noticed Brennan or the media change their use of the First Amendment, have you? In fact, Jake Tapper, Jim Sciutto, Evan Perez and Carl Bernstein won the Merriman Smith Award for their broadcast work and reporting on the dossier. The “story” did not require a tireless investigation. It was handed to CNN by DNI James Clapper. The media always covers for, and protects, their own. They do it by giving the persons whose name is in the by-line an award. In this case, appropriately so, the media chose The White House Correspondent’s Dinner to announce it. It’s their attempt to add legitimacy to a bogus story. You might remember when Dan Rather got his award for the bogus GW Bush  National Guard story. A story that, like the fake dossier, also could not be verified.

The other is the direction from which they report on his motive behind his action. Paraphrasing, “He’s just doing this because they are investigating him for Russia collusion.”

Well, YEAH!

But they say his motivation is to obstruct justice. Which is also irrelevant because that has nothing to do with the ongoing investigation. It has to do with how this investigation really began over two years ago. And Brennan played a big role. (Which is why the initiating documents and related communications still have not seen the light of day.) It is not about what is going on with Mueller today.

They look at it as a threat to national security. And it is. But on the part of the former government officials, not Trump. Former officials with security clearances getting classified information from current government officials, and with that, starting the plan to destroy candidate Trump’s campaign, and then his presidency.

You can’t have people on the outside with top security clearance getting information from people on the inside with top security clearance. Realize that these are swamp dwellers, democrats and Never Trumpers I’m talking about. I don’t think for a second that Brennan not having his security clearance would have stopped Mueller, Comey, Clapper, or anyone else from leaking to the media. There’s simply no reason, as a matter of course, to take your security clearance with you when you leave your employ.

The Commander-in-Chief yanked Brennan’s security clearance to get control of national security. Not to breach it.

Florida Stand Your Ground Challenged

Five years ago, President Obama tried to tie the death of Trayvon Martin to gun violence, bringing to question Florida’s ‘stand your ground’ law.  Even though Florida’s stand your ground law was not part of the Zimmerman case.

Last week Florida Democrats, trying to repeal ‘stand your ground, thankfully, failed to do so. The law came to question again in that fatal parking lot shooting over a parking space. The law does not allow one free shot. In the case of that video, it looks more like a homicide to me. But that’s what trials are for.

Getting back to your right to defend yourself. Why is it that having and using a gun in self-defense is perceived as something racial? Why can’t these Democrats understand that legally having a concealed weapon can save a the life of a Black man too?

Statistically, in the State of Florida, Blacks benefit more, disproportionately more, than Whites in Florida from the stand your ground law.

Black Floridians have made about a third of the state’s total “Stand Your Ground” claims in homicide cases, a rate nearly double the black percentage of Florida’s population. The majority of those claims have been successful, a success rate that exceeds that for Florida whites.

Democrats are advocating the revoking of the basic human right of self-defense, from the very people who are benefiting the most from it, for purely political purposes.

Concealed carry permits are issued regardless of race. It’s an easy four-step process. But depending on where you live, steps one and two may be more difficult.

  1. Live to be 21.
  2. Have no criminal record.
  3. Have no drug addictions or mental illness.
  4. Live in a concealed carry or open carry state.
