Dims Shut Down Govt
« on: January 20, 2018, 06:30:53 AM »
 :lol: :lol: :lol:
Ya gotta love it. The left acts as if this is a catastrophe when in truth nothing changes.
Essential services remain in place. In other words, govt still functions, and life goes on, but the left tries to use it as a bludgeon via the media, but here's the funny part, no one cares what the leftist media says.
Oh, and one other point, Trump controls the narrative now, so regardless of what the left spins, they'll come out on the short end this time. :biggrin:
I'll edit this with some history of shutdowns.

Carter had 6 shutdowns while in office, all put in place by Dim controlled Congress, yet still managed to function with a CR Bill, Continuing Resolution.
It wasn't until Reagan came along did the left attempt to use it as a political weapon, but it was Reagan they were attacking, so they backed off, not wanting to look unamerican, or as we discover later, Marxists.

Truth is, a shutdown is nothing more than a leftist media circus designed to give the appearance that a shutdown will cause people to starve, crime will run rampant in the streets, old people won't get medical care, food, or their SS check will bounce.
But we all learned the truth when the left shut down the govt and with the help of McCON-nel, blamed Cruz, as if Cruz had any power as a single Senator.
But what actually happened under that shut down? Well nothing essentially, in fact, Hussein told Park Services to go around and barricade open monuments because no one was feeling the pinch of failed govt. :lol:

With Obozos failure in mind and his proving a shut down only effects, ummm, well, govt and has little to no impact on the people.
So what actually happened here? The left played right into Trumps trap. Don't believe me? Watch the left try and squirm out of this, and in the end, giving up more concessions than they asked for in the end.
Trump owns these stupid, stupid people.

I still say this is political theater over that FISA/FBI Memo. THey want to delay and distract from it....must be something really, really damning. They could have punted on DACA.

Please someone help me. All this is over a CR to keep the government running. I was under the impression that anything budgetary only required a simple majority in the senate. What am I missing here? Why can't the GOP senate approve a budget sent over to it by the senate?

The reason you can't understand it is, the trap, because it was all about exposing the Dim party for not caring about the American people and exposing this for what it is, Dims wanting illegals flooding the country.
Trump is setting the narrative Thew left can't escape the truth. Trump truly is a genius, no doubt about it.

The federal government shutdown is a gift from Democrats, President Trump joked amid a string of early Saturday tweets, pinning blame for the stalemate on Democrats and pushing for more Republicans to be elected.

“Democrats are far more concerned with Illegal Immigrants than they are with our great Military or Safety at our dangerous Southern Border. They could have easily made a deal but decided to play Shutdown politics instead. #WeNeedMoreRepublicansIn18 in order to power through mess!” he tweeted at 6:17 a.m.

He followed up with a joke on the first anniversary of his inauguration.

“This is the One Year Anniversary of my Presidency and the Democrats wanted to give me a nice present. #DemocratShutdown,” he tweeted at 6:33 a.m.

The tweets continued, with Trump citing the midterm elections as crucial for his party’s success.

“For those asking, the Republicans only have 51 votes in the Senate, and they need 60. That is why we need to win more Republicans in 2018 Election! We can then be even tougher on Crime (and Border), and even better to our Military & Veterans!” he wrote at 6:44 a.m., followed by the catchphrase “#AMERICA FIRST!”

Only time will tell, but this move by democrats could be a tremendous boost to GOP success in 2018. I am surprised at how well the GOP is sticking to the narrative of dems choosing illegals over Americans. That will resonate. Also, it does not hurt that Schummer is the poster boy for the dems. He does not play well in most of the country.

Yep, the way it looks is Trump was in a win-win position regardless, now all he has to do is hammer home the message that Dims care more about illegals than the American people.
Trumpp owns the narrative once again. :thumbsup:

Even Leftist media blames Scummer for the shutdown. :lol:

“U.S. Shutdown Starts as Senate Democrats Block GOP Funding Plan” a Bloomberg headline blared early Saturday morning, referring to the Senate’s inability to agree on a variety of budgetary issues. The New York Times and AP chimed in with similar headlines.

Republican and Democratic leaders have not stopped talking through their differences. Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, for instance, said late Friday night that the conflict has a “really good chance” of being resolved before the weekend concludes. […]

Media outlets, meanwhile, painted the issue in harsh tones for the Democrats — one NYT headline declared: “Senate Democrat Block Bill to Keep Government Open Past Midnight, Shutdown Looms,” while the AP simply noted that, “Senate Democrats derail bill to avert shutdown.”

Could be they know more then what their tell us, that coming down the line on the memo.  So they wish to be on the winning side for once.

I guarantee they know more than they are telling us. This DACA distraction serves two purposes. First, the dems believe it will appease the base. However, their base can never be appeased. Secondly, it is a distraction from the memo. From reports on FNC about 200 GOP members have reviewed the memo and only one democrat has. That fact in and of itself is telling. Timing is important here. The truth must come out soon. If, by chance, the dems take the House this will never see the light of day.

Makes ya wonder if Schumer shutting down Govt was designed as a distraction from the Memo being released on Monday.
I say Monday because this way it gets a full week of solid attention on the Obama/Dim Crime Family, and the shutdown takes a far back burner to the news.
Hey, he tried, but the memo beats everything. :biggrin:

I had the exact same thought - Scummer and Peglegosi are just trying to distract from what's about to drop. At least I hope that was their strategy - because it will fail. Unless of coarse the chain that would release the information are part of the shut down. Even then I think it's workable.

Yeah, it appeared Trump had them boxed in, they had two options, shut it down, or agree to his terms.
I put myself in their position, which one would give the LSM the most meat to chew on while we release the memo?
I think for their sake, the shut down was their only option when considering all next week the beating they'll be taking, this way the leftist media at least have an alternative story to focus on.

What a choice. Death by fire or drowning. :lol:
