How to end the government shutdown

How to end the government shutdown

It’s the third week for the government shutdown that seems poised to break the record for longest in American history. Threats from the White House indicate it could go on much longer. Neither side seems willing to give in. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of Americans are going without paychecks. Services are on hold. Foreign allies and enemies are watching in mild amusement at best, real concern at worst.

On display is the dysfunction of the new normal in American politics – zero compromise between the two major political parties. Both sides continue to point fingers. Democrats are saying that President Trump is holding government funding hostage to pay for his wall. Republicans are saying the Democrats are putting America’s border security at risk by not funding the wall. Both are saying the other side is motivated by purely political reasons. Both sides may be right on that regard.

This game of chicken can be brought to an abrupt end if one of two things happens. Either they make a deal that gives both sides a win, or one side makes a strategic move to “lose” this battle in order to win the war. Option one is the most likely scenario. Option two is almost impossible for the Democrats who still have very little real power while the Senate is still under a Republican majority. That leaves the only beneficial scenario being a strategic retreat by the President, at least for those who want the Republicans to win back control of the House while retaining control of the Senate and White House in 2020.

It’s time for Trump to very strategically, very cautiously retreat. To do so, he would have to precede his retreat with a statement. I’ve taken the liberty of writing it for him:

My fellow Americans. Our first two years in the White House had many incredible successes that pushed us forward in our goal of making America great again. But we made a mistake. We did not fund the border wall because that fight was too difficult to win in the Senate despite our majority. I respect Senator McConnell’s choice of not using the nuclear option, though doing so would have allowed us to fund the wall fully by now. The past is the past and we have to move forward.

To correct the mistake of not funding the wall, I have been engaged in negotiations with the Democrats in good faith so we could keep the government funded and protect American citizens with the much needed border wall. They have chosen not to act in good faith. Instead, they decided it would be better for their political careers to hurt me even if that meant hurting Americans at the same time. I cannot allow that to continue. The negative effects it is having on Americans it far too high.

But I will not retreat. We will build the wall. We will secure the borders. We will fix our infrastructure, the healthcare system, and we will bring our troops home. But I now realize there is no way to move America forward until we take away the power the Democrats won in the midterm elections. Going forward, I will do everything possible to win back our House majority in 2020. Then, we will make certain border security, including the border wall, is fully funded and built.

They do not want border security to improve. That much they’ve made clear by holding American citizens hostage for the sake of defending the foreign invaders crossing our borders every day. They are leaving us with limited abilities to defend our own borders, so every time an illegal immigrant harms an American citizen, the Democrats must take full responsibility for being weak on border security. Every law enforcement agent who is attacked while trying to protect Americans from illegal immigrants must look to these Democrats for not giving them the resources they need, including the wall, to help them do their jobs. The families of every migrant who is harmed or dies as a result of the weakness of our border security can ask these Democrats why they refused to allow us to be a sovereign nation that lovingly accepts millions of legal immigrants to cross into America the right way.

The Democrats have given me only two options: hurt Americans by prolonging the government shutdown or hurt Americans by having weak border security. At this point, my only viable action is to stop the suffering they have imposed while working to end the future suffering they’ve condemned Americans to receive through increased drug and human trafficking, gang activity, and increased burden on American taxpayers.

We’ve made great strides in making America great again, but the Democrats are doing everything they can to reverse this. I won’t allow that. We’re going to continue on our path, but with one big change. The 2020 campaign for all Republicans starts now, and our goal is to make America safe again. Safe from the Democrats. Safe from foreign threats. Safe from bad policies and the horrible ideas they’re brewing on the left.

Today, I’ll end the government shutdown. Tomorrow, we start working towards reestablishing our sovereignty. Let’s make America safe again, together.

Most conservatives will balk at the idea of a retreat, but if it’s done properly. it could yield a 2020 election season that’s a slam dunk for Republicans. In the face of a stalemate, the best option is to win by making the other side lose in the long run.

Joe Biden is considering Stacyy Abrams as his running mate. Why hasn’t he declared yet?

Joe Biden is considering Stacyy Abrams as his running mate Why hasnt he declared yet

The Joe Biden saga keeps getting stranger every week. While most anticipate the former Vice President is going to run for President in 2020, he still hasn’t announced despite most of the major candidates who were expected to run have already made their announcement. Now, a report that his staff is considering asking former Democratic contender for Georgia Governor Stacey Abrams continues to add fuel to speculation while also making this whole thing even more strange.

In 2016, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) made the rare move of announcing his Vice Presidential candidate, Carly Fiorina, before securing the nomination. It was a desperate move at a time when his prospects for defeating Donald Trump were fading and it didn’t work out. Biden’s alleged move is very different. He’s ahead in the very early polls even before the first debate, let alone the Iowa caucus. Yet speculating about a potential VP seems out of place, just like everything else in this whole debacle.

My theory is he’s trying to minimize the potential attack channels by cautiously field-testing everything first. By gathering data without officially announcing a run, he has the luxury of riding the speculation train as long as he can. He would be the instant frontrunner if he were to announce, but if history tells us anything, frontrunner status rarely means much. Hillary Clinton was the frontrunner from beginning to end in 2016, but even then the speculation of a late run by Biden was appealing to many Democrats.

Biden likely fears being the early frontrunner will generate fatigue for his name being tossed around so often. It’s still early; at this point in 2015, only one major GOP candidate, Cruz, had officially announced his run. Biden wants to ride the speculation as long as possible knowing once he’s officially in, he’s open to attacks. Just as his old boss President Obama did in 2008, some lesser known high-energy candidate could sneak up on the frontrunner and knock them off quickly. In 2015, Jeb Bush and Scott Walker were early frontrunners before being embarrassingly tossed aside by Trump and the other candidates.

Whether or not Biden selects Abrams, and if she’s willing to take the nomination, this type of speculation allows him to stay in the news while people continue to hold their collective breath about a future announcement.

Bottom line, he’s running. He’s been running for a while. The fact that he’s not official yet only plays into the fundraising he’s missing, which he’ll be able to make up quickly once he announces. All in all, the Democratic race is turning hilarious.

Babylon Bee satire piece pretty much nails the Democrats’ incentive on Electoral College

Babylon Bee satire piece pretty much nails the Democrats incentive on Electoral College

The founders decided to employ an Electoral College in picking the President to prevent tyranny by majority. They realized back then exactly what is happening today – the establishment of urban and suburban echo chambers that would rather see flyover country engulfed by a giant tornado than to “suffer” through conservative and Christian ideologies, especially in Washington DC. This is the driving force behind the sudden push to abolish the Electoral College, and the satirical masterminds at Babylon Bee nailed it.

Democratic candidate and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is leading the charge to make the process that saved us from a Hillary Clinton presidency obsolete. Why? Because they can’t figure out how to win otherwise. Sure, they were able to dominate the Electoral College with Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, but the last two Democratic Presidents were running against weak Republicans in both of their elections. Had they been running against conservatives, especially in each of their first elections, the results may have been very different and the country may be in much better shape by now.

Nevertheless, this is what the Democrats want. Any system that can yield President Trump is a system they know they can fight against with their unhinged supporters, blind followers, and Trump haters.

That’s the nature of America today. Satire doesn’t need to venture too far away from reality in order to get a hilarious version of the sad state of affairs we find ourselves in, especially as it pertains to the loony party on the far left.

TIL the famous bar AOC worked at shut down over rising costs, minimum wage increase

TIL the famous bar AOC worked at shut down over rising costs minimum wage increase

Today I learned something that surprised me, not because of the event itself but because so few people have talked about it. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is known for being a leader of the socialist movement in Washington DC after rising from the humble status of bartender to the Congresswoman of the 14th district in New York. Her policies include a push for a “living wage” of $15 per hour. I’ve always thought the wording was odd considering Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and others have been calling for a rise in “minimum wage.” Today, I found out why she’s shying away from that phrase.

When New York City raised their minimum wage $15, many businesses were hit hard, especially in the hospitality industry. Restaurants and bars started cutting hours and often even closing their doors over the increase. One of those hit hard by the massive bump was The Coffee Shop. Owner Charles Milite blamed the closure on high costs, with the rise in minimum wage as the last straw.

“The rents are very high and now the minimum wage is going up and we have a huge number of employees,” he said.

The Coffee Shop is the bar where AOC once worked.

Keep in mind, this wasn’t some random bar. The Coffee Shop in Union Square was considered a high-end establishment, buzzing all the time with “A-list” patrons. It was featured many times in the HBO show Sex and the City and had built a reputation as an “it” spot for Manhattan residents and tourists alike. In other words, this wasn’t a hole in the wall hanging on by a string. It was a vibrant, successful business for almost three decades before New York City’s untenable leftist policies, including a $15 minimum wage, became more than the bar could bear.

On the surface, many voters may see the very basic math of “oh, Democrats want to pay me more” and assume there’s no repercussions for such actions. This is why Democrats prey on those people who currently make lower wages. They feel if they can promise them something that sounds good even if they know with 100% certainty based on empirical evidence that it will actually hurt them, these new socialists are willing to make that trade. They figure they can blame the conservatives later for why the place they were working at before cut their hours, removed their jobs, or shut down because of raising the minimum wage.

As usual, socialists rely on ignorance and emotion as the driving forces behind their plans. They’re not stupid. They know their ideas won’t work. But they’re willing to push them on people anyway in hopes that ignorance will keep them in power.
