Chuck Schumer Senator from New York (D) has made it very obvious that he wanted a government shutdown and that he got by appealing to his radical left base and I don’t know why I am calling it a base considering as of right now that is the whole Democratic party as I have written other times. There were only five Democratic Senators who voted with the Republican Senators because they come from states that President Trump won handedly during the presidential election. They didn’t vote from their heart but at least they voted against a government shutdown.
The liberals (socialists) never cease to amaze me as to how they constantly come up with examples as to why liberalism is a mental disorder. Once again Schumer and his cronies which is the whole Democratic Party except for the five mentioned above and only for their best interests wanted to shut the government down mainly for the reason that the morons thought the Republicans would get the blame. How would Republicans get the blame if the Dreamers status does not even come up for a vote until march which means the Dreamers have nothing to do with this resolution agreement; how would Republicans get the blame if the Democrats agreed to everything that was in the agreement except but for the Dreamers status.
I will tell you part of what’s going on here. Schumer and his socialist friends thought the Republicans would cave in like they have done in past years except for the fact they now have a fighter in the White House by the name of President Trump. It was tried on the Democrats that if they wanted a Dreamers provision in the agreement they would have to fund the wall. Naturally Schumer would have nothing to do with that, in other words it’s his way or the highway, no for the funding of the wall but he wants the Dreamers to be in the resolution agreement and I am sure he thought the Republicans would cave in on that issue but those days of the Republicans caving are gone especially with Trump there. So now moron Schumer is up the wall especially now that he will get the blame of shutting the government down. This all has backfired on him.
The following was posted by Ryan Browne, published by CNN Politics: “(CNN)Secretary of Defense James Mattis warned Friday that a government shutdown will have “a terrible” impact on the US military, just hours before a deadline for the Senate to pass a bill to keep the government open. However, he made clear that the military would continue to function and perform critical missions despite a shutdown.”
“If the government shuts down, the military is considered essential and would still report for duty, US officials have said.”
“Military personnel must report to work and will be paid for the first pay period after the shutdown ends. In the 2013 shutdown, Congress passed a bill that paid military personnel through the shutdown.”
“I would just tell you our maintenance activities will probably pretty much shut down. We will not be able to induct any more of our gear that need maintenance,” Mattis said.”
“The secretary also said that “intelligence operations around the world” would stop due to their cost. However, it was not clear what operations he was referring to as mission critical operations are likely to continue.”
What Schumer in effect is saying is that illegal immigration comes before the needs of our military; what Schumer in effect is saying is that illegal immigration comes before meeting the essentials of real Americans who are citizens such as you and me; what Schumer in effect is saying is that illegal immigration comes before funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program which covers about 9 million kids that is included in this resolution agreement. What I say about Schumer and his Democratic cronies who are all in this together the robots that they are, that this is one of the newest examples that liberalism (socialism) is a mental disorder and must be treated as a cancer and they must be voted out of the United States Senate come November.
