Freshman Dems NOT Happy – Bash Leadership For No Negotiations With Trump On Wall

Published

on

It looks like at least some freshman Democrats are coming to their senses. They are not happy with their leadership over stonewalling President Trump on funding for the wall. They don’t seem to share the obstructionist views of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer when it comes to border security.

Several brand-spanking new Democrats on the hill are very frustrated with their leadership over this. They don’t see the harm of negotiating with Trump and giving some to get some. You know… like $5.7 billion for the wall in return for DACA protection.

Democratic New York Rep. Max Rose is one of those freshmen eager to get to work and he wants to start by reopening the government. He wants both sides to compromise and negotiate a deal. He’s even willing to stand up to the leadership of his own party if that becomes necessary. Good for him.

Democratic Rep. Jared Golden of Maine, a 36-year-old Marine Corps veteran, is another example of this kind of bravery. He told the media in his home state that he was really frustrated with all the leadership in DC right now. He also suggested a “common-sense, Mainer solution” that would involve including Republican leadership in any future negotiations. That’s leadership and that is what is needed right now.

President Trump will negotiate. But it takes more than one side to make a deal. These newly elected Dems seem to get that. It’s a pity their leadership doesn’t.

For instance, Virginia Rep. Abigail Spanberger, a Democrat who represents a district won by President Donald Trump in 2016, gave a statement to Politico that her constituents had contacted her office and expressed deep concerns about the Democrats being unwilling to work with the president or to negotiate at all. “If I am getting comments and contact from my constituents expressing concern that the Democrats are not prioritizing security, then I think we can do better,” she said.

And there’s more… from The Daily Caller:

“Democratic New York Rep. Anthony Brindisi cited food safety as the driving concern behind his push to reopen the government.

“Stopping routine food safety inspections of seafood, fruits, vegetables and many other foods at high risk because of contamination because of the federal government’s shutdown is a recipe for disaster,” he said Monday at an event in Oneida. “I’ve been meeting with several representatives from across the country, both Democrats and Republicans. And I’ve been trying to force leadership on both sides of the aisle to work out a compromise to this shutdown.”

“Texas Rep. Colin Allred said that he didn’t believe fellow House Democrats were the cause of the shutdown but conceded that their unwillingness to come to the table could hurt them moving forward.

“I do think it’s setting us back in terms of those coalitions we’re trying to build.” he explained. Allred later added, “I’m not going to rule anything out, I really am not.”

“Georgia Rep. Lucy McBath, also a Democrat, urged a deal as well, telling Politico, “I hope that we can all come to a compromise because that’s the way things get done. If we don’t compromise, the American people are the ones who get hurt. Right now, they are hanging in the balance.” McBath stopped short of saying whether or not she would consider compromise on funding for the proposed border wall.

“New Jersey Rep. Jeff Van Drew, on the day he was sworn in, told VICE News that he was ready to negotiate. “If I had the opportunity to vote for some sort of a deal, I would,” he said.

“AND IT’S NOT JUST THE FRESHMAN WHO ARE STARTING TO TALK DEALS.

“Georgia Rep. Hank Johnson said that a trade — DACA protections for border wall money — would be a deal he would have to consider. He explained to VICE News, “I think it’s a great suggestion. Comprehensive immigration reform has been something that this country should have addressed years ago, so if this provides us with an opportunity to get that done, I think that’s a good thing.”

“Illinois Rep. Bill Foster also signaled a willingness to make a deal. Saying that Dreamers in his own district would support him trading wall funding for protection for illegal immigrants, he added, “I think it’s something that should be in the discussion here because things are obviously going so slowly. I think this is ground that most Democrats should feel comfortable standing on.”’

Even though it would seem there are quite a few Democrats who feel this way, Pelosi and Schumer are not listening. A Tuesday border security meeting that was open to rank and file members of Congress was boycotted by Democrats. If these Dems truly feel this way they should have shown up at that meeting. Actions speak louder than words here.

“Today, the President offered both Democrats and Republicans the chance to meet for lunch at the White House. Unfortunately, no Democrats will attend,” the White House announced. As I said before… you can’t negotiate with those that won’t even come to the table.

Trump: ‘Hard To Believe’ Obama Didn’t Know What FBI Was Up To In 2016

Published

on

President Trump said Wednesday that “it would certainly be hard to believe” that former President Barack Obama was unaware of what the FBI was up to in 2016. Well, of course, he knew. In fact, I would wager he orchestrated all of it. Obama is not dumb or incompetent. I’m almost certain he was pulling the strings and running the war room here.

Attorney General William Barr held a press conference today as the lightly redacted Mueller report was released. He put to rest the conspiracy theories and quelled the rabid Trump hatred by pointing out there was no collusion with the Russians or obstruction of justice. Trump tweeted out, “Game Over!” Indeed, it should be but the left will never give up this bone.

Trump praised Attorney General William Barr, saying “he’s grabbed it by the horn.” It would certainly seem that he has. The guy is fearless. Now, the left is calling for Mueller to have to testify over all this. No matter what they do it won’t change the fact there is no there-there and they are not going to get any dirt on Trump. Give it a rest already. Two years and millions of dollars later, they have nada.

From The Daily Caller:

“The conversation turned to several former Obama-era officials, most of whom are likely to be investigated in the coming months as Barr has pledged, and Trump touted the fact that he had called attention to them as “one of my great achievements, actually.”

“The president also had strong opinions when it came to whether or not Obama was aware of what the FBI was doing. “How is it possible that he didn’t know?” he asked. “I mean, we’re talking about pervasive, horrible things that were happening.”

“It would certainly be hard to believe that he didn’t know what was going on,” Trump concluded.”

That is the understatement of the century.

“Now that the collusion and obstruction conspiracy theories have been exposed for the pathetic hoaxes they always were, the Obama-era [Department of Justice] and FBI must answer for their misdeeds and the scam that they perpetrated against the American people. Justice will be served,” campaign manager Brad Parscale said. “President Trump has been fully and completely exonerated yet again. Now the tables have turned, and it’s time to investigate the liars who instigated this sham investigation into President Trump, motivated by political retribution and based on no evidence whatsoever.”

From the Washington Examiner:

“That theme — “turning the tables” on the Democrats — or some variation of it, was what the Trump campaign ran with immediately after Attorney General William Barr delivered the Mueller report to Congress. Team Trump issued a fresh campaign video with that language as it replayed a series of prominent Democrats insisting over the course of the nearly two-year-long Mueller investigation that the president was guilty of collusion.

“Another staple of the campaign’s messaging: “Investigate the investigators.” The Republican National Committee, working in tandem with Trump 2020, was using similar language in series of press releases, as it emphasized that Russian meddling occurred while Barack Obama was president.

“Bottom line: Not only did Mueller confirm that there was no collusion, we also learned the full extent of how much the Obama administration failed to act while Russia messed with America’s electoral process,” read a missive from RNC rapid response director Steve Guest.”

Trump’s 2020 campaign will no doubt use the Mueller report as a political weapon and at this point, it is one of many that the Democrats will gleefully bludgeon themselves to death with in 2020. Forget hoisting yourself by your petard… these morons are TRYING to commit political suicide. It’s glorious to watch. Popcorn-worthy incompetence and radicalism even.

There is no doubt in my mind that the hunters are about to become the hunted here. I suggest they start with Barack Obama because he knew everything that went on and nothing happened during his administration without his blessing.

REPORT: HUD To Crackdown On Illegals Taking Advantage Of Public Housing

Published

on

Trump is a master at timing. His administration is proposing a new rule to try to block some 32,000 illegal immigrant-led families from claiming public housing assistance, saying it’s unfair to hundreds of thousands of Americans who are stuck on waiting lists. And it is. This is long overdue and I applaud Ben Carson and President Trump on this move.

HUD let Congress know this week that it intends to implement the new rule, kicking off a schedule of publication and notice and comment that could have the plan finalized later this summer. That’s if the darned Democrats don’t get in the way again… which they will. The plan would scrap Clinton-era regulations that allowed illegal immigrants to sign up for assistance without having to disclose their status.

From the Washington Times:

“Under the new Trump rules, not only would the leaseholder using public housing have to be an eligible U.S. person, but the government would verify all applicants through the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) database, a federal system that’s used to weed illegal immigrants out of other welfare programs.

“Those already getting HUD assistance would have to go through a new verification, though it would be over a period of time and wouldn’t all come at once.

“We’ve got our own people to house and need to take care of our citizens,” an administration official told The Washington Times. “Because of past loopholes in HUD guidance, illegal aliens were able to live in free public housing desperately needed by so many of our own citizens. As illegal aliens attempt to swarm our borders, we’re sending the message that you can’t live off of American welfare on the taxpayers’ dime.”

“Illegal immigrants’ access to taxpayer-funded welfare and other benefit programs has long been controversial.

“It was considered a non-starter for Democrats when they wrote Obamacare a decade ago, and they excluded illegal immigrants from the health law. But the party’s attitude has changed and now some Democrats are pushing to expand the 2010 law to include unauthorized migrants.

“Polling, though, suggests Americans remain opposed to public benefits flowing to illegal immigrants, and President Trump has suggested it’s time to crack down on loopholes and interpretations that have allowed them to do so.

“In the case of Section 8 housing assistance, there are competing laws that have created confusion.

“In 2017 the HUD inspector general investigated illegal immigrants in New York who were using public housing under a special program for people with HIV or AIDS, and found that the government had never clearly stated whether housing was a federal public benefit subject to a 1996 ban for unauthorized migrants.

“Further complicating matters, Clinton-era rules specifically allowed “mixed” immigration status families to gain housing benefits. As long as one person in the home is an eligible U.S. resident, a family can qualify. The eligible person doesn’t need to be the head of the household, and could even be a minor child.

“The government created a system that allows people to apply for housing assistance as “non-contending,” meaning they decline to say whether they were legally in the country. Benefits are supposed to be adjusted on a pro-rated basis to account for those non-contenders.”

The immigrant-rights activists on the left are lining up to oppose this rule as I write this. They claim that penalizing mixed-status families means hurting the legal residents in those families, who are often young children. Too bad, they are here illegally. If they want to partake of American benefits, let them become legal immigrants first, not second. This same argument is being used to debate tax credits that, while claimed on behalf of citizen children, are paid to illegal immigrant parents.

Give the GOP credit… they’ve done their best to tighten these tax rules and regulations but the obstructionist Democrats have stopped them at every turn.

Trump’s administration is making the argument that lengthy backlogs for housing assistance make the new HUD proposal an obvious change. There are millions of people waiting on that list. One in four families who would qualify for housing assistance actually get the benefit right now. Most of those waiting for HUD help are likely poor seniors or people living with a disability. These people are being hurt by those that don’t belong here legally.

From The Daily Caller:

“HUD intends to roll out a proposal over the next few weeks that prohibits any illegal immigrant from residing in subsidized housing, even if they are not the direct recipient of the benefit. HUD currently estimates that tens of thousands of HUD-assisted households are headed by non-citizens.

“Families who are caught gaming the system by allowing illegal immigrants to stay with them either have to comply with the new rule or they will be forced to move out of their residence.

“Households will be screened through the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements, or “SAVE,” program.

“An administration official told the Caller that this is a continuation of the president’s “America First” policies.”

Did you know that the average waiting time to get housing assistance in the US is now 26 months? That’s outrageous. In progressive enclaves such as Los Angeles, you can wait more than four years. All because of illegal immigrants being allowed to break our laws.

Even Cher took notice of the idiocy here in a tweet she put out this week: “I understand helping struggling immigrants,” she said, “but my city (Los Angeles) isn’t taking care of its own.” She pointed out the 50,000 citizens that are living on the streets and who are below the poverty line and go hungry. Many are veterans who served their country only to have no place to return to and no help was forthcoming. They should have just come across the border. “If my state can’t take care of its own … how can it take care of more,” Cher wondered. Good question.

Trump found himself in agreement with Cher for the first time. “This proposal gets to the whole point Cher was making,” an administration official told The Times. Yes, it does. Faster, faster pussycat.
