Mouthy Reporter Interrupts Sarah To Shout Trump Is ‘Lying’ – She Makes Him Eat His Words

Published

on

Sarah Huckabee Sanders has a really difficult job as the Press Secretary for the White House. Yet, she does such an impeccable job at what she does and she never backs down or gets frazzled in the heat of the moment. It is why she far surpasses her predecessor Sean Spicer who stepped down to move over to Fox News. Recently, she was attacked yet again by a member of the press corps about the immigration debate and the president’s stance on it. But she defended herself brilliantly.

Update America reported,

“A reporter clashed with White House press secretary Sarah Sanders during Monday’s press briefing after he suspended his objectivity and accused President Donald Trump of “lying” about an important issue. The reporter’s question was centered around two tweets posted by the president.

“HOUSE REPUBLICANS SHOULD PASS THE STRONG BUT FAIR IMMIGRATION BILL, KNOWN AS GOODLATTE II, IN THEIR AFTERNOON VOTE TODAY, EVEN THOUGH THE DEMS WON’T LET IT PASS IN THE SENATE,” Trump tweeted. ‘PASSAGE WILL SHOW THAT WE WANT STRONG BORDERS & SECURITY WHILE THE DEMS WANT OPEN BORDERS = CRIME. WIN!”

A few days later, the president tweeted another message. “I never pushed the Republicans in the House to vote for the Immigration Bill, either GOODLATTE 1 or 2, because it could never have gotten enough Democrats as long as there is the 60 vote threshold,” the president wrote. “I released many prior to the vote knowing we need more Republicans to win in Nov.”

“Why would the president lie about something like that?” the reporter asked. The reporter got a scorching response from Sanders as she provided important context behind Trump’s statements.“He didn’t,” Sanders shot back. “The president has talked all along; we’ve laid out the priorities and the principles that we support; that we wanted to see reflected in legislation. At the same time, the president wasn’t aggressively lobbying members because he knew that Democrats in the Senate still were unwilling to actually come to the table and focus on solutions rather than playing political games.”

She added, “Democrats have made it abundantly clear that they don’t actually want to fix problems. … I guess for some reason they think this is a good issue for them, although it isn’t. Frankly, I think it’s outrageous that Democrats have not come to the table and tried to help fix this problem.” The reporter did not attempt to ask a follow-up question.”

The Hill reported,

“Sanders pinned blame for the issue on Democrats, arguing that opposition from Democratic senators rendered legislation in the House meaningless. “We could’ve gotten it through the House, but that doesn’t work if we can’t get it through Senate,” Sanders said. “Frankly, I think it’s outrageous that Democrats have not come to the table and tried to help fix this problem,” she added. The House rejected two GOP-crafted immigration bills in the past two weeks, with some Republicans opposing each bill. A compromise bill, known as Goodlatte II, failed in a 300-121 vote last week.

A more hard-line measure failed by a 231-193 vote the week before. President Trump sent mixed signals to GOP lawmakers ahead of each vote. He initially met with House Republicans privately to tell them he was “1,000 percent” behind them on the issue.

The day after the failed vote on the hard-line bill, Trump tweeted that Republicans should “stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November.” He offered support the day of the vote on Goodlatte II, saying Republicans should pass the bill in the House, “even though the Dems won’t let it pass in the Senate.””

There are solutions out their regarding the immigration issues at the border. However, every piece of legislation that could find a solution to the problem is one that Democrats refuse to support. Yet, they are adamantly opposed to what is going on at the border. They cannot have it both ways, they cannot, on one hand, complain about the issues at the border and then on the other hand not support legislation that would fix the problem. At this point, they are just being contrarian for the sake of being so.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders was right. They need to decide if they love hating Trump more than they love their country and what is right for the American people. Because the President is not lying, he wants a solution to the immigration problem. It is Democrats who need to get their buts in order. Furthermore, they need to stop putting so much thought and weight into the president tweets. They act as if every single tweet he puts out has secret meaning behind it when it is simply his avenue and mode of operandi to speak to the American people.

Perhaps if Democrats and the media spent more time trying to find solutions to our problems than interpreting the president’s tweets they would able to get more done and achieve more in the long run.

Share if you agree that Sarah Huckabee Sanders does an amazing job as the Press Secretary.

Share if you believe that she does not deserve the backlash she gets.

Share if you think that the president is truthful.

Share if you agree that what the president said is the truth.

HA Ha! McConnell To Call Vote On Ocasio’s Green New Deal, Schumer’s PISSED

Published

on

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, who on a good day looks like he’s sucking on a lemon, ripped into Republicans for planning to force a vote on the Green New Deal. They want everyone on record concerning where they stand for this insanity. Schumer doesn’t want the Dems pinned down and he’s really ticked at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for calling the vote. McConnell is trolling the Dems and I love it.

Schumer called the plan a “stunt,” a “cheap, cynical ploy” and “a game of political gotcha.” Considering Schumer wrote the proverbial book on dirty politics, he should know. Actually, it is a valid move to make politicians say they are either for or against the Green New Deal. “The Republican leader announced he’s going to bring up a resolution he intends to vote against,” Schumer said on the Senate floor. “Now that is what the American people hate about Congress — the pointless partisan games.” No sir… they hate the corrupt leftists tearing us apart.

Schumer isn’t the only Democrat calling foul here. They are terrified of being tied to a plan that would literally destroy the US and everything we hold dear. But most of the Democratic field running for the presidency in 2020 has already rallied behind the deal. Even so, Schumer, joined by colleagues on the Senate floor, said: “Bring it on.” He said Democrats “believe that we need to do something about climate change” and added: “Do Republicans?” Make no mistake, this has nothing to do with climate change and everything to do with greed, graft, and corruption.

McConnell promised a Senate vote on the Green New Deal last week. He wants Democrats to go on record. Nice tee-up for the 2020 race and reelecting Trump. “I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal,” McConnell told reporters. “And we’re going to be voting on that in the Senate. We’ll give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal.”

The Green New Deal was put forth by Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). She wants to transform our economy and way of life in an attempt to fight faux climate change. It recently came under scrutiny after revelations that a related FAQ document included passages promising a job to “all people of the United States” – including those “unwilling to work” – and suggesting air travel could be made obsolete. And don’t even get me started on eliminating cow farts.

“We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast,” the now-deleted document also read. Then Ocasio-Cortez and her minions tried to claim that the doc was concocted by Republicans. She lied her ever-loving head off.

From Fox News:

“But McConnell’s move to bring the plan to a vote on the Senate floor will be a key test for Democratic presidential candidates such as Sens. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, who are running on the progressive platform in 2020.

“While backing of the far-left proposal will ultimately improve their liberal bona fides and their support from the Democratic base, the support of the plan will undoubtedly be the target of attacks during the general election.

“President Trump has already begun attacking the Green New Deal, claiming it would “shut down American energy” and describing it as “a high school term paper that got a low mark” during a rally Monday in El Paso, Texas.

“Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez, said that McConnell’s plan to bring the plan to the vote will only show “just how out of touch Republican politicians are with the American people.”

“Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass, a co-sponsor of the plan, also decried McConnell’s move.

“Don’t let Mitch McConnell fool you: this is nothing but an attempt to sabotage the movement we are building. He wants to silence your voice so Republicans don’t have to explain why they are climate change deniers. McConnell wants this to be the end, this is just the beginning,” Markey said.”

This is an attempt to wake America up and show them what will happen if the Democrats seize control. Al Gore never went away, he just co-opted the millennials and power-hungry climbers in the Democratic Party.

As Wealthy Flee New York, Cuomo Warns Budget Problems ‘Serious as a Heart Attack’

Published

on

The wealthy have been fleeing the socialist policies of New York for some time now. The flight of those who have money is speeding up however just as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is warning of budget problems. He announced Monday that state income tax revenues plummeted by $2.8 billion since he introduced his new budget plan last month which means spending will have to be massively cut in the state. He says he needs to reconsider spending on schools, healthcare, and repairs to roads and bridges.

Instead of taking stock of his failing fiscal policies, Cuomo, of course, blamed President Trump’s new tax plan for the state’s problems. In actuality, it is high taxes on everything that is choking the life out of New York and businesses there. Socialists are great at giving stuff away until they run out of other people’s money… that would be the wealthy fleeing the state.

From Newsday:

“Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Monday announced a dramatic drop in state income tax revenue of $2.8 billion, which he says will prompt him to revise his 2019-20 budget and reconsider spending on schools, health care and repairs to roads and bridges.

“Cuomo, a Democrat, blamed the shortfall on a federal tax plan backed by Republican President Donald Trump. Cuomo said the law’s cap on deductions for state and local taxes at $10,000 was to blame and suggested it is, anecdotally, triggering high-earners to leave New York.

“At this point there is no doubt that the budget we put forward is not supported by the revenues,” Cuomo said at a State Capitol news conference. “It’s as serious as a heart attack.”

“Cuomo said he’s not certain what areas might need to be cut, but said the biggest spending areas now are education, health care, infrastructure and another phase-in of a previously approved middle-class tax cut.

“I fear it’s going to get worse before it gets better,” state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said in a rare news conference with Cuomo. “It’s not all gloom and doom, but it’s a matter of very, very serious concern.” Tax revenues could rebound, he said, but he agreed with Cuomo that early indicators are not good.

“Cuomo has until mid-February to submit amendments to his budget, which came in at $175.2 billion when he unveiled it Jan. 15.

“The announcement also serves notice to the legislature, which for the first time in most of a half-century is controlled by Democrats.

“The Democratic majorities in the Senate and Assembly have several proposals to add to the budget. Cuomo will no longer have Senate Republicans as an ally for fiscally conservative measures. The Republicans lost the majority in the November elections.”

New York’s revenue problems can’t be blamed on Trump. I don’t blame those who are successful for hightailing it out of New York. They get to keep a pittance of their hard-earned income. Between state, city, and federal taxation there’s not much left when these thieves are done. Note to Cuomo… those wealthy you are fleecing are the ones that actually work and pay taxes.

Cutting taxes and enticing business to the state is the way to go, but liberals can’t seem to wrap their heads around the concept. In fact, you have Marxists such as NY Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others in the Democratic Party who want to raise the top tax rate to a whopping 70% or more. They want to do away with billionaires too. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

It’s a good thing Cuomo will never be elected president. He would turn all of America into New York. As The Federalist put it, “Not since John F. Kennedy was President has there been a Democrat that understood lower taxes on the wealthy helps the poor.” And that certainly includes Cuomo.
