    The Republican base that supported Trump are being betrayed on a scale unimaginable but so very predictable. It is perfectly clear now, the cheap labor, open borders oligarchy in the Republican Party are backstabbing President Trump and never intended to allow any of his agenda supported by the Republican Base and his voters to go forward. They want to give the majority back to the Democratic Party and all in the name of their cheap labor, open borders benefactors, the oligarchy and K-Street. Now the same Republicans have given 1.1 TRILLION dollars to the Democratic agenda, but NOTHING for us,...
  • Lawmakers strike budget deal to fund government through Sept. 30 (We are being screwed over again)

    05/01/2017 10:57:29 AM PDT · by Cubs Fan · 73 replies
    Congressional leaders have reached a deal to fund the government through the rest of the government's fiscal year, a congressional aide has confirmed to the Washington Examiner. Republican and Democratic lawmakers agreed to a $1.070 trillion package to fund the government through September 30. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., praised the budget deal as a "good agreement for the American people" that "takes the threat of a government shutdown off the table." "The bill ensures taxpayer dollars aren't used to fund an ineffective border wall, excludes poison pill riders, and increases investments in programs that the middle-class relies on,...

    RUSH: You know, the more you get into this, the worse it actually is. Listen to this. This is from the Washington Post story with the headline: “Eight Ways Trump Got Rolled in His First Budget .” This, in the Washington Post, is their number one roll, and it’s understandable. The only thing that didn’t get any money in this budget is Trump’s wall. Everything else — including everything Trump opposes — got a budget increase. Try this: “There are explicit restrictions to block the border wall. “We knew last week there would be no money to start construction on...

    The House Freedom Caucus on Wednesday announced it will back the GOP's healthcare plan now that an amendment allowing states to opt out of key ObamaCare rules is included. The group of roughly 30 hard-line conservatives held out for weeks, scuttling a planned House vote on the bill last month after it became clear there was't enough Republican support to pass it. The group said it sees the new amendment, brokered by Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and centrist Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-N.J.), as the best option short of fully repealing the 2010 law. "While the revised version still...

    Ivanka Trump said resettling Syrian refugees in the United States should be “part of the discussion.” “I think there is a global humanitarian crisis that’s happening,” Ivanka — who serves as a special assistant to her father — said during an interview with the “Today” show. “And we have to come together and we have to solve it.” When asked if that means letting Syrian refugees into the United States, Ivanka said, “That has to be part of the discussion, but that’s not going to be enough in and of itself.” Donald Trump signed an executive order in March that...

    President Trump said Friday that undocumented immigrants who were brought illegally to the U.S. as children should "rest easy" and not fear deportation under his administration's efforts to ramp up immigration enforcement. The president told The Associated Press in an interview that his calls to crack down on illegal immigration are focused primarily on removing criminals from the U.S. and are not geared toward the so-called Dreamers. Trump's comments came on the heels of a lawsuit filed Tuesday alleging that a recipient of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which allows undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children...

The 2nd is that if Trump were not president he could still do the same thing.</p>

    Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump enlisted the services of Risa Heller, a New York City public relations figure known for her work with Democrats including former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Gov. David Paterson (D-NY), when they came to Washington to take up their official posts in the Trump White House, according to a report in Buzzfeed. The revelation came amid reports that a New York City set with a history of friendly ties to the Democratic party is gaining traction in President Donald Trump’s White House, much to the chagrin of conservative commentators....

    Cruz, up for reelection in 2018, is back home in Texas on a “two-week listening tour” with voters. In an interview with NBC 5 reporter Julie Fine, he explained the problem with pursuing regime change in Syria without a clear strategy or end game. "We are trapped between impossible options. On one hand, Bashar al-Assad is a monster. He has repeatedly used chemical weapons against his own citizens, against innocent men women and children. He is a bad, bad guy,” Cruz said. [cut] “But on the other hand, the opposition – many of the rebels fighting against him – are...

    NBC ^ | 4-11-17 | Alexander Smith
    Donald Trump's decision to bomb Syria was influenced by his daughter, Ivanka, being "heartbroken and outraged" at the country's alleged chemical weapons attack, one of the president's sons told a British newspaper. The president launched 59 cruise missiles at a Syrian government air base he alleged was involved in a chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians last week. Trump's 33-year-old son, Eric, told The Daily Telegraph on Monday that the strike was influenced in part by Ivanka, who he said was "heartbroken and outraged" by the chemical attack.

    Leading conservative talker Mark Levin has strongly endorsed President Trump's strike on Syria, urging in his Friday night Levin TV show, "You should be very proud of your president, that's a leader." Levin, never one to rip Trump, said, "By God, when he does the right thing and he does it in such a wonderful way, as a true leader, then he needs to have our support. We need to have his back." Throughout the day, some of Trump's supporters have criticized the president for the strike, which they believe violates his campaign promises to keep America from deeper involvement...

  • No 'sea to shining sea' border wall, says Trump homeland security chief Kelly

    Dallas News ^ | 04/05/2017 | Todd Gillman
    Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly told the Senate on Wednesday morning that he doesn't expect construction of a wall the full length of the U.S.-Mexico border -- marking the abandonment of a central campaign promise by President Donald Trump. "It's unlikely that we will build wall or a physical barrier from sea to shining sea," Kelly testified to the Senate Homeland Security Committee. "We're not going to build a wall where it doesn't make sense. But we'll do something across the Southwest border." That's a direct contradiction of Trump's vow of a "big, beautiful wall" the full 2,200-mile length of...

    Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily received word from a US State Department spokesperson that YES, as the HuffPo reported yesterday, the Administration is going to admit 900 refugees a week for the remainder of the fiscal year which ends September 30th. As of yesterday, that would mean that 62,482 could be the expected total. The average since 9/11 has been around 64,000. (See all admission numbers since 9/11 here.) So big deal! The Trump team would be admitting only a small number below the average of George Bush and Barack Obama years. The Dems, the Open Borders Left, the...

    Not only on the Refugee Admissions front (see my previous post), but obviously fearing powerful Islamists, the US State Department has convinced the wobbling White House to not name the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. From Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily yesterday: President Trump has decided not to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization, at least for now, according to published reports citing pressure from the U.S. State Department and the King of Jordan. Anonymous sources told the Washington Times that the administration “backed down from a plan to designate the Brotherhood” after an internal State...

    What grade do you give President Trump for his first 70 days in office? I myself have been very impressed with his performance. I give him a solid B. FYI: Trump supporters grade his performance (CNN video - 7:45). For those of you who don't wish to sit through the whole thing, CNN's Alisyn Camerota interviewed six enthusiastic and articulate Trump supporters. Five gave him an A and one gave him a B.

    After removing Katie Walsh from the White House staff, President Trump now moves to confront the #NeverTrump coalition in congress, Hillary’s Favorite Caucus, head on.More than half of the remaining members of the House Freedom Caucus are still #NeverTrump, entrenched and intransigent Pro-Ted Cruz ideologues. They oppose Trump and have never moved beyond losing in the primary. They are still fighting the 2016 primary race they lost.It appears President Trump has had enough of their ideological gridlock.
