Pelosi Tells Trump Delay State Of The Union, Then DHS Drops BOMB About Her Plan

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had the gall to demand that President Trump delay his State of the Union address or submit it in writing. She claims that security has not been paid to cover the event. That was when DHS dropped a bomb on her dishonest claims. This is beyond outrageous… I have never heard of a politician pulling something so egregious before.

Chad Pegram, who covers Congress for Fox News, tweeted this out: “Colleague John Roberts rpts security officials say no one from Hse Dem ldrshp reached out to them about prep for State of the Union. DHS says USSS is “ready for State of the Union. Described this as a “no fail” mission.” Pelosi made the whole thing up. That’s disgraceful. DHS is quite prepared for the State of the Union. Not only is Pelosi playing politics… she’s just lying at the drop of a hat now.

The SOTU is scheduled for the president to deliver it to a Joint Session of Congress on Jan. 29. But since there is a partial government shutdown in place, Pelosi wanted it delayed until that is over. That’s rich when you consider you’ve got Democrats partying in Portugal, Pelosi having fun in Hawaii and Dems taking eleven days off in the middle of this mess. What a hypocrite.

“On January 3rd, it was my privilege as Speaker to invite you to deliver the State of the Union address on January 29. The Constitution calls for the President ‘from time to time give the Congress Information of the State of the Union,” Pelosi wrote, but noted that “since the start of modern budgeting in Fiscal Year 1977, a State of the Union address has never been delivered during a government shutdown.”

Well, then… it will be a first, won’t it Nancy? She wasn’t done either. “Sadly, given the security concerns and unless the government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to Congress on January 29.”

Pelosi accused Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen of saying there wasn’t proper security for events such as this because of the shutdown. Nielsen allegedly said that there is a “need for the full resources of the Federal Government to be brought to bear” to “ensure the security of these events.”

“The U.S. Secret Service was designated as the lead federal agency responsible for coordinating, planning, exercising, and implementing security for National Special Security Events…” Pelosi wrote. “However, both the U.S. Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security have not been funded for 26 days now – with critical departments hamstrung by furloughs.”

A senior Homeland Security official later told Fox News, however, that they have been preparing for months for the State of the Union event.

From Fox News:

“Despite Pelosi’s suggestion to come to an agreement on a new date, Pelosi did not rescind the president’s invitation. That decision ultimately rests with her, as speaker of the House.

“The address, historically, has not always been delivered in person. Thomas Jefferson started the practice of submitting the address in writing, and it was not until Woodrow Wilson’s administration that the speech was delivered in person again.

“Pelosi’s letter to the White House comes as the shutdown, the longest in history, has left more than 800,000 federal employees and contractors without pay. Some employees are deemed essential to government functions and are required to work without pay. Others have been furloughed, and also do not receive paychecks.

“The government first ran out of funding on Dec. 22, as the president requested $5.7 billion in funding for border security and construction of a border wall or physical barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border, citing an “invasion” and a “humanitarian crisis.”

“Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., have vowed to block any spending proposal that includes funding for a wall.

“Negotiations between Democrats and the president have grown increasingly contentious. Last week, a tense White House meeting ended abruptly, with the president walking out of the room after Pelosi maintained that she would not accept a spending package with wall funding.

“Pelosi, after the meeting, said Trump was “petulant,” and Schumer added that Trump slammed his hand on a table in frustration and had a “temper tantrum” — a claim Trump, Vice President Pence and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., later denied.

“This week, Trump, instead, decided not to invite Pelosi to a border security meeting at the White House, but reached out to other rank-and-file Democrats to join his lunch with Republican members of Congress. All of the Democrats invited declined the president’s invitation.

“The President offered both Democrats and Republicans the chance to meet for lunch at the White House,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Tuesday. “Unfortunately, no Democrats will attend…It’s time for Democrats to come to the table and make a deal.”

“Sanders added that Pelosi and Schumer “refuse to negotiate.”‘

This is just one more reason that President Trump needs to stand his ground on the border wall funding. Extortion and underhanded tricks like this show just how despicable the other side really is. In fact, this would be an excellent time to declare a national emergency over security on the border plus the humanitarian crisis there. This week, the president warned of a “big new Caravan” heading up to the Southern Border from Honduras.

“Tell Nancy and Chuck that a drone flying around will not stop them. Only a Wall will work. Only a Wall, or Steel Barrier, will keep our Country safe! Stop playing political games and end the Shutdown!”

President Trump has foregone the holidays to address this emergency while Democrats have been partying and having a great time. One thing remains constant… the non-stop lying. Something Nancy Pelosi is very adept at.

Pelosi, Hoyer Take Impeachment Off The Table, Dems Crushed

Published

on

Get used to it, Democrats. President Trump ain’t going anywhere. Your dreams are ruined!

The top two Democrats in the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer , have called a time out on impeaching President Donald Trump, crushing the dreams of thousands of progressive activists and many of their House colleagues.

Pelosi announced the decision to forgo instituting impeachment proceedings on a call with House leaders Tuesday morning telling 170 Democratic Members of Congress on an insane, 90-minute conference call, that the House will instead focus on investigating the President and let the American people decide what to believe in November of 2020.

Fox News reports that Pelosi told her colleagues that “we have to save our democracy.”

“This isn’t about Democrats or Republicans. It’s about saving our democracy. If it is what we need to do to honor our responsibility to the Constitution – if that’s the place the facts take us, that’s the place we have to go,” she added, before claiming that the “facts” simply don’t point to removing the President from office quite yet — but that further investigation could lead there.

“We don’t have to go to articles of impeachment to obtain the facts, the presentation of facts.”

In a letter released ahead of the call, Pelosi got into greater detail.

“While our views range from proceeding to investigate the findings of the Mueller report or proceeding directly to impeachment, we all firmly agree that we should proceed down a path of finding the truth,” Pelosi wrote to Democratic Members. “It is also important to know that the facts regarding holding the president accountable can be gained outside of impeachment hearings.”

“Whether currently indictable or not,” she added, “it is clear that the president has, at a minimum, engaged in highly unethical and unscrupulous behavior which does not bring honor to the office he holds.”

In other words, Pelosi plans on spending the next eighteen months directing multiple investigations into Trump, his finances, his businesses, and his White House, in the hopes that the public impact of such probes will seriously injure the President, giving Democrats an advantage in the 2020 election.

Dems reacted on Twitter:

Former Obama Administration speechwriter, Jon Favreau.

Chris Hayes:

Left-leaning commentator Judd Legum.

And more…

“I say go for it Nancy. Go ahead, tie up our nation for another 18 months of completely baseless, ridiculous inquiries and accusations. Watch how the American people vote in 2020 when they get so sick of all of the Democratic Party antics. Let’s have another 18 months of keeping our country in a state of suspended animation waiting for the next asinine idea you idiots are going to come up with. Do it Nancy do it. More votes in 2020 for us.”

The majority of Americans are sick & tired of the Democrat party. Imagine how they are going to react when President Trump wins in 2020. I wonder how many liberals are going to kill themselves over this. They still can’t get over 2016… and they for sure won’t be able to deal with life after 2020.

Keep it up, Democrats. This ain’t going to help you in the end. Your party is going down faster than Bill Clinton’s pants.

Elizabeth Warren Says Use Taxpayer Money To Pay Student Debt – $1.25 TRILLION Cost

Published

on

If Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is a real economist, I’ll eat my hat. The woman is nothing more than an economically illiterate Marxist. She’s now proposing using taxpayer money to “cancel” hundreds of billions of dollars in student-loan debt and offer debt-free college for millions more, which would cost $1.25 trillion over the next decade.

I’m sure young people will mostly support this move, but ask yourself… where does the money come from to pay off these loans? If you said a wealth tax you get a cookie. She intends to rob the rich to pay off student loans. Economically speaking, that is moronic.

It is successful and rich business owners who provide jobs for everyone else. Your degree won’t mean much if you can’t find work. Margaret Thatcher once said that “The trouble with Socialism is that eventually, you run out of other people’s money.” She was more right than she ever knew.

Warren wrote a blog post on the leftist Medium site where she stated that the “huge student loan debt burden” is “crushing millions of families and acting as an anchor on our economy. It’s reducing homeownership rates. It’s leading fewer people to start businesses. It’s forcing students to drop out of school before getting a degree. It’s a problem for all of us.”

From The Daily Wire, here is some of Warren’s drivel:

“The first step in addressing this crisis is to deal head-on with the outstanding debt that is weighing down millions of families and should never have been required in the first place. That’s why I’m calling for something truly transformational — the cancellation of up to $50,000 in student loan debt for 42 million Americans.

“My plan for broad student debt cancellation will:

“Cancel debt for more than 95% of the nearly 45 million Americans with student loan debt;

“Wipeout student loan debt entirely for more than 75% of the Americans with that debt;

“Substantially increase wealth for Black and Latinx families and reduce both the Black-White and Latinx-White wealth gaps; and

“Provide an enormous middle-class stimulus that will boost economic growth, increase home purchases, and fuel a new wave of small business formation.”

This is money for nothing, chicks for free blather. It would destroy the middle-class and she knows it. You can’t afford to buy a home if all your income is going out in taxes to pay for other people’s education. I worked hard and paid off my loans and I don’t want to pay for others who want a free ride.

“Do I get a refund for having chosen a cheaper public university so I wouldn’t be riddled with a ton of debt?” wrote Josh Jordan. “Seriously this is stupid – everyone knows what they’re borrowing when they go through the process and I want no part in paying off everyone else’s student loans.”

“You better retro that and pay back all of us who diligently paid our loans back in full if you pull this bull—-,” wrote a Twitter user.

“Experts estimate my debt cancellation plan creates a one-time cost to the government of $640 billion. The Universal Free College program brings the total cost of the program to roughly $1.25 trillion over ten years,” Warren wrote. She would print money to cover the cost starting an economic domino effect that will leave us in a Weimer-esque Republic. The sheer idiocy of this proposal stuns me.

Warren says “the actual costs of these new ideas are likely to be even less than that,” and claims “we can fully cover the cost of these ideas with revenue from my Ultra-Millionaire Tax on the wealthiest 75,000 families in the country — those with fortunes of $50 million or more.” She is insane. Stripping the wealth from Americans like that is a suicide march off a Marxist cliff.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the plan would entail “an annual 2% levy on wealth above $50 million and an additional 1% tax on wealth above $1 billion.” You do know that most of the wealthy would find a way around that theft, right? In the end, it would be the middle-class paying for all this and the burden would crush us.

Under her plan, borrowers with a household income under $100,000 would have $50,000 of their student debt canceled. Borrowers with an income between $150,000 and $250,000 would be eligible for some debt cancellation, though not the full $50,000, and borrowers earning $250,000 or more wouldn’t have any of their debt canceled.

Warren, who is running for president in 2020 and stands no chance of being elected, also proposes using $50 billion in taxpayer funds for historically black colleges and universities, known as HBCUs. She wants to “prohibit public colleges from considering citizenship status” when making admissions decisions. So throw the borders open and educate the world while stealing from Peter to pay Paul. Galt’s Gulch is looking better and better if the leftists come back into power.

In addition, Warren wants to phase out federal money that now goes to for-profit schools. “After an appropriate transition period, ban for-profit colleges from receiving any federal dollars (including military benefits and federal student loans), so they can no longer use taxpayer dollars to enrich themselves while targeting lower-income students, servicemembers, and students of color and leaving them saddled with debt,” she wrote. Instead, she will saddle all of America with debt and ‘news flash!’… we’re already beyond broke. This would also begin to bring all colleges under the purvue of the federal government. Not good.

Student loan debt has more than doubled over the last 10 years to $1.5 trillion, and some economic experts say that it is driving the declining homeownership rates among young adults. Get a job, pay off your debt and stop whining. If you can’t pay it off, don’t take the loans. Go into business for yourself. Start acting more like an entrepreneurial American and less like a European Marxist weenie.
