Remember when Freepers used to defend Koch Brothers against attacks from the Left? I think the Leftists who called these guys callous selfish oligarchs were right.

They are still illegal aliens regardless of Obama’s illegal program.

The lefties are good and brainwashed, thinking of the Koch brothers as on the right when they’ve supported just about every liberal cause out there.

They talked a good game with respect to deregulation of business. For a while, at least.

Re: Koch Brothers To Push DACA Amnesty in 2019

What took so long?

Trump offered to exchange DACA Amnesty for The Wall in 2017.

Trump's first and second Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus and John Kelly, both publicly supported DACA Amnesty in 2017.

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen publicly supported DACA Amnesty in 2017.

This is the keystone to this whole problem, remove it and the whole debacle will collapse on itself. As soon as the deportation force is assembled the democrats will give you anything to stop it. Begin with a million or two and things will get interesting. Start at the canadian border and sweep southward catching as many as possible and driving the lawbreakers before you. Also declare money sent by non citizens out of this country to be criminal proceeds and let any agency that can stop it keep it. The illegals will voluntarily return to their real countries. The ones they send their money to each month.

The immediate problem is the gov’t shutdown.

That’s probably what’s going on right now.

They are actively buying off the new GOP senators such that they’ll give up what will end up being a multi-million DACA amnesty for a little fence repair down on our monstrously and intentionally porous border.

Cory Gardner is going to be a problem.

It’s as if the new GOP senators can’t wait to fill McCain and Flake and Corker’s shoes.

Mitt and Cory are at it early, and we can expect McSally to join them, though she is less vocal for now.

And today some Freepers still defend the pedophile Bush family. Time will change all.

Gardner is going to lose his seat. Romney has President Envy.

AZ Gov just won reelection with 300,000 more votes than McSally got causing her to lose. I think McSally will vote with the President. McSally has to defend her seat in 2020 when Trump is up for reelection and AZ will be tough for both of them.

We can hope you’re right, that she has her eyes on the prizes of her next two elections, actually. If it came to a conviction vote in the Senate, however, I expect she’d consider her buy-off worthwhile.

Time to raise their taxes. That is the way to fight C of C rinos. If wealthy people are going to create a permanent Dem majority, either by design or greed and stupidity, then they need to pay the taxes that the Dems claim they want. I am sorry I supported every tax cut for them. When the gang of eight travesty occurred that is when I became woke.
