Snatching Defeat From Victory…
First A Tweet:
With the Democrats hemorrhaging at the seams, infighting going public, “The squad” calling the Speaker names, and the debates getting heated, what does the President do? Unite the opposition.
His actions this weekend are the example that with all things being equal to today, the election next year would be a landslide. Instead it is clear his uncontrolled actions, tweeting and words will make it close.
What did he say?
“So interesting to see Progressive Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly……….and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run.
Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how…….it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”
Immediately they stop fighting each other and unite against the words. All he had to do was be quiet and let them rip each other. No, he had to step in. You had the infighting going on, you had candidates like Mayor Pete saying “Medicare for all could not be implemented immediately”. You had the Democrats facing their inner division. You had the Democrat reps on the ropes during the Sunday shows trying to defend their actions on the border and ICE raids. It was shaping up really bad, then along comes the President to unite them.
Then the ICE Plans:
So why would the President announce we are going out Sunday to collect illegals (who have been through the system and ordered to leave) and deport them? Why would you warn people you are coming to knock?
Once he did that the storm arose. The left and MSM were untied on the sob stories about family separation. Where is the White House and Republican machine to explain these are people who have broken the law twice? Why do they allow the left to paint them as heartless as opposed to standing for right?
Then once you announce this and it’s clear you can’t execute the plan you know what they should have done? Target a dozen or so of the real hard core criminals. Go get them and set up the press to see and understand who you are deporting. Can you image if people saw and heard the story of why these people were being deported what their reaction would be?
They would see people who came illegally, went through the process, were ordered by the court to leave and committed crimes while here.
Why aren’t they smart enough to manipulate as their opponents are?
Why can’t the Republican Party and White House articulate the Democrat position on the border?
No border, no money to hold anyone who comes across, no checking people, no limits, no deportations of anyone here illegally. Why can’t they lay that out with one voice so Americans can decide what they want?
Second, why is it racist every time the President tweets or says something but not racist when the left say things about him?
Why is it racist when he says if you don’t love America leave; but not racist when they call him every name in the book?
The answer is because the MSM supports the left and allows them to get away with it. The simple truth is that their hero President Obama deported over double the people that Trump has, and you heard not a word. Who’s racist?
Third, when congress finally gave some money for the kids at the border, after calling it a “manufactured crisis”, what happened? This from KEN CUCCINELLI on the scene VP MIKE PENCE saw in Texas, speaking to JON KARL on ABC’S “THIS WEEK”:
“Well, because Congress has let it happen. It’s that simple. Look at just the supplemental appropriation last month. It was overwhelmingly focused on children — and all of us prioritize care for children. And in one month we went from about 2,500 kids in overcrowded — being in CBP detention facilities down to about 300-some-odd with only a handful of those past the 72 hour metric that is when we try to ship kids out of — of Border Patrol custody. So when Congress provides the professionals at the border what they need, success happens, success being measured as avoiding overcrowding.”
Karl who started this interview in the normal left leaning ABC tough manner had to back up. Is it so hard to get this message out?
Mr. President, Nancy Pelosi is not your friend and never will be. You went out of your way to defend her against “The Squad” calling her a racist by saying she wasn’t. Well twenty-four hours later here’s her tweet when you needed help:
“When @realDonaldTrump tells four American Congresswomen to go back to their countries, he reaffirms his plan to ‘Make America Great Again’ has always been about making America white again. Our diversity is our strength and our unity is our power. … I reject @realDonaldTrump’s xenophobic comments meant to divide our nation. Rather than attack Members of Congress, he should work with us for humane immigration policy that reflects American values. Stop the raids
Get the message?
You noticed the progress this month at the border now that Mexico has taken action after the tariff controversy. Not much coverage. Now consider this.
Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales plans to discuss a deal in Washington Monday that would require migrants from El Salvador and Honduras to seek asylum in Guatemala rather than the U.S., as the Trump administration seeks to slow migrant flows.
That would be progress.
We talked about the deficit last week. Here’s an update:
The U.S. budget deficit increased by $140 billion during the first nine months of this budget year to $747.1 billion as government revenues and spending both hit records.The Treasury Department reported Thursday that the deficit for the current fiscal year through June is up 23.1% over the same period a year ago with receipts rising by 2.7% while spending increased 6.6%.
