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

Published

on

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?

Dianne Feinstein’s comment on Dayton shooter skipped one important point

Dianne Feinsteins comment on Dayton shooter skipped one important point

Gun control is the talk of the town as the week comes to a close. Well, that and Greenland. And Jeffrey Epstein. But the mass shootings two weeks ago has DC buzzing, media furiously reporting, and activists on both sides of the debate furiously Tweeting at each other. Senator Dianne Feinstein weighed in on the discussion by pointing out some important facts about the alleged Dayton shooter, Connor Betts.

Her facts are correct. Her analysis is off because it missed one important point. We’ll get to that in a minute, but let’s declare once and for all (though I’m sure I’ll have to repeat myself later) that the 2nd Amendment IS NOT ABOUT HUNTING OR HOME PROTECTION. Our right to keep and bear firearms was put into the Constitution by our founders because they recognized what could happen if the people had no recourse against an oppressive government. Just as Venezuelans didn’t realize they danger they were putting themselves into when they allowed their guns to be taken away, so too do many Americans put way too much trust in government.

The authoritarian left wants guns because they know they’ll never achieve their endgame as long as the people can defend themselves from tyranny.

Feinstein is correct that the Dayton shooter was able to cause an extreme amount of death and injury in a short period of time. Police were quick to respond, otherwise it could have been much worse. But as our EIC pointed out in a Tweet, Feinstein’s narrative is worthless when you look at it from the opposite perspective.

Gun control is not the solution to our mass shooting problem. If anything, gun control has enabled shooters to enact their crimes without fear of many “good guys with a gun” to stop them. We must never give up our 2nd Amendment rights.

President says AOC ‘fuming’ that Tlaib, Omar are becoming the faces of the party

President says AOC fuming that Tlaib Omar are becoming the faces of the party

President Trump took to Twitter to make fun of the opposition party as two of its most outspoken members, Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, continue making headlines and stirring up controversy. He even threw in an accusation against Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for good measure.

There are no indications that this is accurate, but that’s not the point. This isn’t hard policy or thoughtful analysis. It’s a petty jab, and while many Americans, including some of his fans, are against him taking shots at the opposition in such a manner, this is the society we live in and it includes a President who takes jabs on Twitter. You can stress over it or sit back and enjoy it. I choose the latter.

For AOC’s part, she took the jab with a chuckle.

Beyond the diversion this offers ahead of a weekend, reality is probably more closely reflected by the President’s Tweet than Democrats are comfortable admitting, at least the part about them being the face of the party. “The Squad” makes more headlines among the four of them than the rest of the Democrats combined, and this includes the powerful heads of committees who are actively investigating President Trump ahead of a possible impeachment.

Both Democrats and Republicans have different degrees of infatuation with “The Squad.” Are they a real threat to our republic, as many on both sides claim, or are they merely a diversion from real decisions being made in DC?

Kirsten Gillibrand wants to confiscate guns

Kirsten Gillibrand wants to confiscate guns

Senator and failing Democratic candidate for president Kirsten Gillibrand wants to confiscate your guns. The former “conservative” when it was politically expedient to be one in upstate New York has now gone the way of most her new party. She’s a radical progressive who wants your guns.

For someone who used to have an “A” rating with the NRA, she’s come a long way to hit rock bottom by calling for “assault weapons” bans and mandatory buybacks, AKA confiscations. Oh, but she won’t actually SAY they’re mandatory buybacks. She danced around that question like a pop star.

Gun activist Colion Noir broke down a recent interview she did with CNN. It was clear, as Noir pointed out, that CNN has already weighed Gillibrand in the balance and found her wanting. They went after her to corner her on her old gun rights support and tried to get her to admit what she wants to do as president with gun confiscations.

It’s funny watching Democrats flail around trying to get attention for themselves. There are only a handful of candidates leaving a mark, and Kirsten Gillibrand isn’t one of them. But she’s still trying to do damage to the 2nd Amendment on her way out.
