Democrats support DACA for one reason: It’s their only hope for new voters

Published

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a commodity in the Trump Stock Exchange and the wall may never have a single brick laid. In 2016, then candidate Trump ran on building a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico. He said he would be tough on illegal immigration. After a rough start, the U.S. Supreme Court finally allowed a majority of the second effort end to the flood of illegal immigration to stand. Many cities decided to rebel against President Trump’s executive order. In fact, they have strengthened their stance as sanctuaries for illegal immigrants.

Peel back the humanitarian effort of the Democratic Party and DACA has a single purpose: to provide a voting base.

In SB-54, CNN reports California seeks to “[bar] state and local law enforcement agencies from using their resources, including money, facility, property, equipment or personnel, to help with immigration enforcement.” This only emboldens those who would stand against President Trump’s move to end DACA. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) seems to feel that breaking the law is okay. Yet, Pelosi will rant and rave about being a nation of laws ruled by law; the latest example being that of President Trump’s pardon of Joe Arpaio. Right or wrong, how can Pelosi (or anyone else) argue rule of law when she so fervently advocates illegal immigration?

Peel back the humanitarian effort of the Democratic Party and DACA has a single purpose: to provide a voting base. Pelosi doesn’t care that DACA undermines the American worker with dreams. She doesn’t care for the individuals who have stood in line to pay their dues to become American citizens following legal procedures. Let’s face it; Pelosi doesn’t really care for the rule of law unless it suits her purpose.

On September 5, 2017, President Trump seemingly ended DACA. Or did he? There have since been numerous protests mostly by illegal immigrants. Here is something those illegal immigrants don’t seem to know or care about: the U.S. Constitution is for American citizens and while all individuals have rights, it is incumbent upon the individuals’ countries to protect those rights. As of now, those here under the pretense of DACA are here illegally and should be sent home. Yet President Trump might be making deals that may keep them here.

Trump wants to get some economic and tax reforms under way. The Administration needs to make good on his promise to build a wall. He still wants to do something about Obamacare. And he thinks DACA might be his golden ticket. He can dangle this like a carrot in front of Pelosi and Schumer (D-NY) to get just about anything he wants. In 6 months, President Trump will begin phasing out DACA’s protections, the NYTimes reported. While we cannot be entirely certain what that means, the Trump Administration has put the onus on Congress to replace DACA with a piece of legislation before March, 2018. Apparently, Trump is willing to keep parts of DACA in play in order to achieve some of his other goals.

According to CNN, at a dinner in which Pelosi and Schumer attended with President Trump, “… the parameters of any deal, including a potential pathway to citizenship for [DACA] participants and funding for his marquee campaign promise of a wall along the US-Mexico border are up in the air …” Some see this as reaching across the aisle. Or, maybe some even feel like cozying up to the master of the deal. I don’t find it appealing at all, but rather a way to grant amnesty in return for being allowed to follow through on a campaign promise. I believe the numbers have shown that if our budget is not strained with illegal immigrants, those funds can easily pay for the wall.

As if Pelosi and her wayward state of California’s grandstanding against Trump’s orders to curb illegal immigration were not enough, corporations are now following the lead. Uber, Microsoft, Apple and Facebook are among the tech giants moving to support DACA participants sympathetically called Dreamers. Uber and others have even vowed to defend these individuals from being deported. Mark Zuckerberg and other tech CEO’s say that Dreamers, some 800,000 individuals, are vital to technology and are here to reach their full potential. Here is my question to them: what about the millions of Americans who have the same desires and potential?

Graham Ledger: Democrats, mainstream media panicking over William Barr’s upcoming investigations

Graham Ledger Democrats mainstream media panicking over William Barrs upcoming investigations

It’s human nature for people to talk about one of two things: What they want the most and what they fear the most. That’s why the rhetoric coming from the Democratic Party and their lapdogs in mainstream media for the last month has all surrounded Attorney General William Barr, the people working with him, and Barr’s boss, the President of the United States. The left has been inconsolable ever since the Mueller report did not send the President into the tailspin they so desperately sought.

One America News anchor Graham Ledger called them out for the hypocrisy surrounding their unhinged reactions to Barr’s upcoming investigations. There are several and all point to the notion that the Obama administration and progressives in the FBI sought to derail then-candidate Trump’s campaign so Hillary Clinton could win the White House.

It’s a conspiracy theory, one that seems very close to being pronounced a verified conspiracy. Every day more evidence emerges that the Democrats were playing dirty and potentially illegally when they tried to stop the election of Donald Trump. And as this truth comes to light, the Democrats and mainstream media are doing everything in their power to keep the conversation from heading in the proper direction of focusing on the real scandal surrounding the Russia investigation.

It may be months or even years before we know the whole truth. In fact, if President Trump is not reelected, we may never know the whole truth. That’s not the biggest reason to vote for him, but it’s quickly becoming a hot talking point among Independents who are sick of the corruption that seems to be pervasive in the Democratic Party as a whole.

Things haven’t been working out the way Democrats or mainstream media expected. In their wildest dreams they didn’t think they could get caught in so many lies, but as Graham Ledger pointed out, that’s exactly what’s happening.

Why Democrats will drag out impeachment for as long as they possibly can

Why Democrats will drag out impeachment for as long as they possibly can

Democrats have been playing a dangerous game of politicizing their efforts towards and against impeachment ever since they won control of the House of Representatives with the 2018 midterm elections. They have all the information they need in order to make a definitive decision about whether to impeach President Trump, but they continue to delay. Their reason is very plain: They want the news cycle to stay focused on their efforts until something else other than illegal immigration can come along and save them.

We’ve actually talked about this once or twice before, but it bears repeating and reframing as more the process evolves.

The crisis at our southern border has been untenable for several months as reports of increases in migrants and decreases in options make it crystal clear the policies of the Democrats and the failure of the Republicans to change them have encouraged the breach of our borders. The blame may fall on both sides’ failures over time, but the current stance of the GOP and the constant proclamations of the President put the full brunt of the responsibility on the left’s open borders policies.

Whether Americans support impeachment or not is actually irrelevant to the Democrats. They want things to stay in the middle on the issue, ebbing and flowing between support and opposition. The longer they can keep the media focused on their latest set of subpoenas or new voices calling for impeachment, the easier it is for them to ignore the border crisis. It’s their crisis. They own it. But they don’t want to pay politically in either direction for it.

They can’t do anything about it because doing so would be to admit the President was right. They can’t ignore it indefinitely because eventually it will be so big that mainstream media will be forced to move impeachment talks to page two while they focus on the crisis. Between the two options, Democrats are hoping to avoid the second by ignoring the first. They believe if they can keep media looking at the Mueller report and screaming about obstruction, something will eventually happen that’s even bigger than the border crisis. War with Iran? Economic collapse? Big mass shooting? Another abortion bill? Whatever it is, they’re using impeachment talk to fill in the gaps.

Democrats have to keep talking about impeachment and doing impeachment-related activities without actually impeaching. Once they pull the trigger, it’ll be over soon enough and Americans will look at other news like the border crisis.

Democrats imperiled whether they impeach or not

Democrats imperiled whether they impeach or not

The Democratic Party is stuck between a rock and a hard place. They have been refreshing talks about impeachment of President Trump for months as it ebbs and flows as a talking point. The threats have been constant, though often from different sources. Yet, they haven’t pulled the trigger. It seems like things are getting awkward.

The rock they face is the futile time- and resource-draining reality of it all. If the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives impeaches the President, it will then be tried in the Republican-controlled Senate where it will likely go nowhere. What makes it worse for them is that impeachment isn’t a popular action with voters; even many Democrats have voiced their concern that it would be a waste of time.

Meanwhile, the hard place they’re up against comes in the form of the radical progressive wing of the party that is growing in ranks and influence. They want the President impeached even if it has no chance of actually going anywhere. They’re pressuring their fellow Democrats and have been rallying their supporters around this goal. If Speaker of the House never brings it to the floor, she and her allies in the House will face the scorn of the likes of Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

They’re damned if they do and they’re damned if they don’t.

As for the President himself, he’s been done with all the investigations, implications, and attacks by the press. He just wants to be President and do his thing. But what he may not appreciate is that impeachment by the House will give him a huge campaign point. He can not only garner sympathy over the ceaseless attacks by Democrats, but he and the RNC can also use it to help them win back some of the seats they lost in 2018.

Personally, I’d love to see them impeach him. Assuming the get all of the Democrats and some Republicans on board, they’ll have the votes they’ll need to make the first leg of the impeachment process happen.

Unless something fresh comes to light that changes public sentiment, impeachment would be a poor move in the eyes of most Americans. But the radicals in the party will voice outrage if impeachment never happens. Such as silly group, the Democrats.
