Wittman requested Congress stay in session to solve government shutdown. Pelosi declined.

Representative Rob Wittman (R-VA) went on Fox News this morning as the government shutdown approaches its 23rd day. He asked Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to keep Congress in session so they can work out a deal to get the government up and running again.

“We need to be here working on this issue which is in the forefront now with the government being shut down,” Wittman said. “People expect their government to work and get things done.”

There have been several discussions over the past four weeks between Republicans and Democrats, but the impasse continues. At issue is the border wall, which President Trump asked for well before the government shutdown started. He declared then that he would not sign a CR to prevent a partial government shutdown. Democrats have declined to consider anything that includes funding for the border wall.

“On Friday, I asked Speaker Pelosi to keep us in session,” Wittman continued. “I sent her a letter and said ‘we have the business of the nation to do.’ The people who have sent us here expect us to get the job done. They expect us to find common ground.”

While the President waits…

…the Democrats have other things to do…

Dems fly to Puerto Rico on chartered jet, meet with lobbyists, see ‘Hamilton’ as shutdown drags on

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/democrats-fly-to-puerto-rico-amid-ongoing-government-shutdownDespite a partial government shutdown with no end in sight, about 30 Democratic members of Congress traveled to Puerto Rico this weekend — with their families and lobbyists — for a winter retreat where they also planned to see a special performance of the hit Broadway show “Hamilton.”

Those attending the Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PAC gathering in San Juan also planned to meet Saturday with Puerto Rican officials to discuss ongoing cleanup efforts from Hurricane Maria, according to a report.

My Take

Democrats have held an advantage on this issue ever since the President announced he’d “own” the shutdown. Currently, most Americans believe the shutdown is the President’s and the GOP’s fault, but things may be changing soon in public sentiment. The optics of their Puerto Rico trip is as bad as it gets, especially with “Beach Bob” as their poster boy.

If Republican stay in Washington and continue to beat the drum of “let’s get this done,” they can turn the tide on the Democrats. But they must do so in good faith. That means making real offers the Democrats could actually accept.

Exposing the truth about Republicans

Which party founded the KKK, supported slavery, and opposed civil rights and giving blacks the vote?

A recent video from Will Witt from PragerU exposes that people do not really know that much about the Republican and Democratic parties. The revelation of the facts of the matter shocked most of the people, showing that the government indoctrination system is woefully inadequate to educating the country. No matter how much money they waste.

Now that the Left is doing all they can to render the words racist and sexist meaningless, while numbing everyone to real crimes against certain minorities. It’s vitally important to correct the record on which political party began with the purpose of the abolition of slavery. The party that started the – and revived – the KKK and which party opposed civil rights and giving blacks the vote.

The three candidates who fell for Erica Thomas’s hate hoax are too gullible to be president

The three candidates who fell for Erica Thomass hate hoax are too gullible to be president

The President of the United States needs to be able to call out lies, especially when they’re told by people who may share ideological alignment. Republicans should be the first to call out Republicans when one of them is wrong, and Democrats should expect the same from their own ranks.

There’s another characteristic important for a president. They can’t be gullible, again with an emphasis on being gullible to stories coming from within one’s own tribe. There are too many false narratives in the world of American politics, so being able to see a blatant lie for what it is makes for an important presidential trait.

Georgia state representative Erica Thomas lied. She played the race card, turned it into an anti-Trump dog whistle, and then doubled down when confronted by her fellow Democrat she was trying to slander. But three Democratic candidates quickly backed her on her tall tale. None of them have retracted now that the truth is known. And no Democratic candidate has called her out for perpetrating another hate hoax.

There is real racism in America and it should be confronted. But the breathless rants of people desperately trying to emerge in the crowded Democratic field are often too quick to pass the wrong judgment when it suits their narrative. Such is the case for three reactionary and gullible candidates:

Bill de Blasio, Beto O’Rourke, and Julian Castro failed the jump-to-conclusions test, the see-through-the-lies test, and the make-everything-about-race test. It’s no surprise that their candidacies for president are failing or that they’re desperately attempting to pander to the African-American community by backing a false narrative. There was no racism involved in this incident, and most Americans had the sense to question the validity of Thomas’s outrageous claim. But in the world of Democrats who are stricken with Trump Derangement Syndrome, the only surprise is that fewer didn’t fall for it. Perhaps it was fortunate for them it happened over the weekend.

Hate hoaxers like Erica Thomas should be condemned, not embraced for their hatred. The three who were too gullible to see through her fabrications are not presidential nomination material.

The first Democratic candidate to call out Erica Thomas’s lies gets my endorsement for the party’s nomination. I still won’t vote for them next November, but at least they’ll stand out as the one honest person among two dozen race hoax enablers.

40 million new voters to be mobilized against Trump

40 million new voters to be mobilized against Trump

The Democratic election strategy for 2020 is still a work-in-progress, but that’s not stopping communist and socialist organizations from putting together voter mobilization efforts to stop President Trump from winning a second term. Their focus is on electing the Democratic nominee, whoever it may be. To do this, they are targeting reliable Democrats who normally do not vote.

Their targets are the south in states like Texas, Florida, and Arizona. Republican strategists are confident that the President will win reelection, but losing any of these states could ruin his chances.

This report by Gina Shakespeare at The Epoch Times breaks down the plans by the socialists and communists. If they are successful, a Democrat will be in the White House in 2021.
