Did Trump trade away the wall in DACA deal with Democrats?

Published

Democrats DACA deal

This is simply too hard to believe for us to state it as fact until it’s confirmed from the horse’s mouth. At the time of this writing, the White House itself has said that it’s not true. Could a U.S. Senator and Congresswoman be overstating, misled, or outright lying?

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi put out a joint statement claiming the President agreed to their DACA deal that would “enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly” while improving border security WITHOUT President Trump’s infamous border wall as part of the deal. The White House disagrees. Here are the competing Tweets:

The funny part is that this could turn into just the distraction the president needed in order to get DACA passed without his base too upset. Remember, candidate Trump was quite adamant that DREAMers and their families needed to be deported. There were even protests from parts of his base about the notion that he’d “work with them” to make it easier for them to get back into the country legally. Now, he’s not even going to deport them. Imagine a scenario where he comes out, says he’s building the wall with or without the Democrats, gets a DACA deal done, and his base cheers. Why? Because he will have demonstrated strength in the face of adversity by sticking true to his wall promise even if his DACA promise was pushed aside. Clever stuff.

Reactions have been swift, though many are being edited to include the Press Secretary’s comments.

Final Thoughts

Until this is confirmed by the White House, we’re not going to jump to any conclusions. It’s sad when you have to question the accuracy of an official joint statement from a Congresswoman and Senator, but that’s the state of affairs in Washington DC today.

The Progressives and the Race Card

Published

on

The “race card” has been the left’s longtime weapon against conservatives. It must stop now, or America will be lost forever. Just as with other fallen nations and empires of ancient past.

For many years the left has accused the Republican party, conservatives and moreover, Bible-believing Christians of being racist and wanting to keep America purely Anglo white. Just recently Univision’s equivalent to Walter Cronkite, Jorge Ramos; just made a reviling statement during his appearance on CNN only proving the conservative right about the news media bias in favor of the Democratic Party and their agenda of supporting chain migration.

“They are not proposing immigration reform, they are proposing immigration revenge,” Ramos said. “Because they not only want to help the DACA students but also they want to have a wall, they want more border security, they want to end the so-called chain migration which is family reunification and then the visa lottery.”

However, as the truth gets out about the real history of the American progressives especially those involved in the Democrat party, the true racists proved to be the Democrats themselves. Before Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party which won Dinesh D’Souza four Golden Razzies (which he accepted with honors), the respected Steven Spielberg stayed true to history and showed the open display of racism and the advocacy of slavery that the Democrat party was supporting back in the days of Abraham Lincoln in his namesake 2012 film that Spielberg produced and directed.

In spite of these two films, the race card has been the best weapon that the Democrat progressive leftist to use against people who want to see a cap put on this chain immigration crisis in America. Those who want that cap are so afraid to be seen as bigots and people that hate blacks, Asians, Latinos, etc, etc. If we are going to preserve America and its founding principles we can no longer play defense on this issue. We must play offense, and the above movies I mentioned are a good start to use against the Democrat pravda machine.

I am convinced more than ever that the white progressives are not suffering from “white liberal guilt” nor do they really want to pay penance for own past sins nor the sins of what their movement and political party (the Democrats) has done in the past.

No, they show their true colors when they accuse us of doing what they have done and/or what the Democrats and other progressives of the past have done. History has shown to all of us that they are the racists, xenophobes or what other names they can throw at us hoping that it sticks. The biggest of this bunch at least in the 20th century are Woodrow Wilson and Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Wilson abandoned Biblical truth in favor of Darwinism and ushered that into Princeton University when he became president of that respected educational institution. LBJ was always a racist but like smoking the honeybees he knew to give the African-Americans enough money from the taxpayers to keep them quiet and have them vote Democrat for the next 200 years or so when he lost the civil rights fight in the 1960’s. Both were big-time racists and hated the negro citizen with a passion. Lest we forget that Wilson screened the pro-Ku Klux Klan movie “The Birth of a Nation” at the White House when he was POTUS.

As Christians we need to continue to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the one and true single race…that being the “Human Race.”

God wants all humans to be saved by his son Jesus regardless of skin color or heritage (Mark 16:15). Yeshua did not just die for the Jews (his own people) and the white gentiles. He died for the black, the yellow, the red, the brown etc. etc. The Gospel is the one and only true melting pot while America’s version is a secondary one but based on the principles of the first one. The progressive’s gospel of diversity celebration and co-existence only creates a ‘salad bowl’ which only leads to more division among the citizenry and power-hungry tyrants ready to take control. That control is why they are currying favor among the minorities, and that will not end well for them or any of us who is not a politician or bureaucrat.

Prison Work Camp USA?: Sen. Menendez Now Calls Illegals “Undocumented Americans”

Published

on

The latest assault on the concept of American citizenship: calling illegal immigrants “undocumented Americans.”

That’s the fresh term used Wednesday by incumbent Senator Bob Menendez of New Jersey on the floor of the United States Senate in a debate about the status of the so-called “Dreamers,” illegal immigrants brought over as minors.

Menendez faces reelection this fall in a strong (Hillary beat Trump by 13 points) Democratic state: New Jersey. But he recently went through criminal trial on federal corruption charges that ended in a hung jury last fall, and the Justice Department recently decided not to retry him.

Takeaway

The emotional plea of the purportedly-victimized Dreamers obscures many highly-alarming truths.

First, as to their claim to be victims: The Dreamers are victims.

They are victims of their own lawbreaking parents.

And when you hear the taunts of “family values” from Democrats-cum-Marxists, ask what type of family values are in evidence from illegals being deported, who would leave their children behind?

Second, calling any illegal an American is to degrade the term, degrade the concept of citizenship and degrade existing Americans. Why stop at the border? Why not argue that everyone on the planet is an American — and by extension, that Americans’ “exceptionalism” compels us to be “our brothers’ keeper” with all seven billion people on the planet?

Who gets to set American immigration policy? Is it Americans? Or the rest of the world?

And let’s ask the common sense but hardly ever articulated questions that need to be asked.

If Americans must admit the entire world, no questions asked, but cannot enjoy the reciprocal “right to flee” to a distant land where individual rights and liberties will still be respected, then hasn’t America become just one large prison camp, existing for Americans to work, increasingly to suffer the burden of supporting the rest of the planet who travel here at their leisure and whim and leave their refuse here when they leave?

At that point, are we really all that different from the notorious prison camps in North Korea?

Tom Cotton lacks political will to oppose Trump’s amnesty and citizenship for illegals

Published

on

Before he was elected US Senator of Arkansas, Tom Cotton served one term (2012-2014) in the US House representing the 4th congressional district of The Natural State. As a rising star in the GOP and a military veteran who served in Afghanistan, Cotton became only the second Republican since Reconstruction to represent the 4th district, thanks to the support of both the TEA Party and the GOP establishment—support that he continued to receive in his 2014 campaign for the US Senate.

One of the reasons Cotton received conservative support—I supported him—was due to his positions on a host of issued important to conservatives. One such issue, which is the topic of the week in Washington, was immigration, specifically, what America should do with illegal aliens already in the country.

“We cannot afford to grant illegal aliens amnesty or a so-called ‘earned pathway to citizenship.’ Amnesty would cost billions of dollars that our government cannot afford.

“Also, amnesty would attract millions of new illegal aliens just as the 1986 amnesty did, by advertising to the world that America lacks the political will to enforce its borders.”

SOURCE: 2012 House campaign website, CottonforCongress. com, “Issues,” November 6, 2012

Sounds great, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, 2012 was an election year and in a non-election year, Cotton’s loyalties are the same as every other Republicrat and Trumplican in Washington to the party establishment.

In an interview yesterday with Trump’s morning intel team—a.k.a. FOX and Friends—Cotton issued a strong endorsement of Trump’s plan to grant amnesty and citizenship to 1.8 illegals. Calling it a “popular proposal” supported by “2/3 of the American people,” Cotton admitted that the plan would cause an increase in illegal immigration, a consequence he once believed was reason enough not to support such a plan.

In what has become an increasingly common theme within the GOP, Tom Cotton is another example of how Republicans make whatever conservative-sounding promise they need to make in election years in the interest of political self-preservation but then toss those promises aside when the party machine comes calling.

Using his own words, Tom Cotton’s support of Trump’s DACA displays a “lack of political will” to do what’s right for America—a disappointing reality coming from a war hero.
