What the heck, is McConnell being blackmailed?

Why are they so intimidated by this ignoramous? Do they know there is life after Trump?


Why is the GOP Senate subjugating their responsibilities in deference to Trump?  Legislative branch is co-equal branch of government. Behaving in a subservient manner is beyond my comprehension.  Are they planning to carry Trump's water bucket at the determent of their party?

McConnell refuses to allow a vote on any spending bill that does not have the support of the president.


It’s possible a bill to reopen the government could pass with enough support to override a presidential veto. But Republicans suggested Wednesday they wouldn’t dare.


As reported....“I’m going to defer to the president on the best strategy and I would never vote to override a veto on something that the president didn’t think was the best approach,” Sen. Thom Tillis told HuffPost while carrying a lapdog named Mitch to McConnell’s office on Wednesday. 




Senate Republicans Won’t Fund The Government If It Means Defying Trump

Here is one person brave enough to tell the truth and she is not a fan of the Republicans


www.laconiadailysun.com/opinion/columns/...


The rest is just noise except for a few like AOC 


www.gq.com/story/ocasio-cortez-response-...


End border enfiorcement, cross at your own risk with no professionals on the other end to find you but when you get here there should be no jobs unless if you visit an embassy or official border crossing and get in line.  It is time for the illegals to stop exploiting low wage Americans and those that try to follow our immigration policies.


Illegal immigrants do not act more American than ICE Alexandria, legal immigrants act more American than illegals and natural born citizens.


I know I am right on this issue and you all know I am right on this issue but the silence on both sides is deafening.  It's time for a politician or maybe a bipartisan coalition to step up and start telling the truth on this issue.  They would be the heroes and the government should not re-open until we have National E-Verify.

I'm all for National  E-verify...it makes rational sense.

All the Republicans want to cede open borders to the Democrats but are afraid of Trump?

It has nothing to do about being "afraid" of Trump.  It's about the Republicans doing what is right and having a guy at the helm who isn't afraid to stand up for what's right.  The Democrats say they're for border security but these are the same people who hopped on the Abolish ICE movement.  Their offer of $1.7B with notation of no wall funding is a joke.  They have recognized and voted for the need for a wall in certain places and it's been backed up by EVERY study on the matter.  Maybe Trump won't get his full wall, but until the Democrats move from the "no wall" stance, the Republicans need to stand strong.


There is room for negotiation but Pelosi and Schumer don't even want to listen.  A strategically placed wall with other increased efforts is a good compromise.  Give them DACA, which a large percentage of even Republicans support.  Give them e-verify.  Give them penalties to employers hiring illegals.  Heck, I'd even give them amnesty for everyone already here, but if they don't identify and establish a path to legal status then they get shipped back with no legal recourse.

"these are the same people who hopped on the Abolish ICE movement"


It's the abusive behaviors of ICE that Dems are against.

They haven't said that.  They've said "Abolish ICE".  They have control of ICE.  They can legislate any policies they want if they feel that ICE is acting inhumanely.  When they were against some methods of military interrogation, did they say "abolish the military"?  No.  They went after that policy (which significantly hampered our intelligence community, but I digress).  The abolish ICE movement is all part of a plan by the Socialist left to tear down our borders, eliminate security, eliminate wealth (except their own, of course), and establish this "New World Order".

 They said it.


Democrats haven't abolished ICE, just their message about it


www.nbcnews.com/politics/immigration/dem...


One of the first was Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old Democratic Socialist who knocked off Rep. Joe Crowley, D-Queens, the No. 4 Democrat in the House, in a June Democratic primary. She was quickly followed by Gillibrand, de Blasio, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Reps. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., Jim McGovern, D-Mass., Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., Mike Capuano, D-Mass. and others.
