    Democrats, especially those vying for their party’s 2020 presidential nomination, have resolutely come out in opposition to POTUS Donald Trump’s extremely generous compromise offer on border security and immigration reform, proving once more they couldn’t care less about the safety and security of our country. Even before the president finished laying out his proposal on Saturday, which included money for his sought-after wall along with border security technology (something Dems claimed all last week they supported) and three-year extentions for DACA recipients and others facing deporation, top Democrats including Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer...

    House Budget Committee chair Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) called Sunday for a ban on teenagers wearing “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) hats, in response to a viral video of a confrontation between Catholic students and Native American counter-demonstrators at the March for Life on Friday in Washington, DC. Yarmuth holds one of the most powerful positions in the Democrat-run U.S. House of Representatives.
  • Joy Reid Falsely Accuses Republicans of Sabotaging Obama and Dems'

    During special coverage of President Trump’s immigration speech on MSNBC Saturday, anchor Joy Reid interviewed former Republican Congressman Carlos Curbelo. The discussion focused on President Trump’s immigration speech, with the two arguing about whether both sides or just Republicans deserve blame for the stalemate that led to a government shutdown. As she tried to make the case that Republicans alone deserve the blame, Reid falsely claimed that Republicans blocked President Obama from passing immigration reform during his first year in office. Curbelo, on the other hand, tried to argue that the Democrats deserve a fair share of the blame for...
  • ‘Save The Dreamers’: WaPo Implores Democrats To Take Trump’s Wall Deal

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and congressional Democrats are losing one big voice in their opposition to President Donald Trump’s push for a border wall: The Washington Post’s editorial board. WaPo noted in a Sunday editorial reasons why Pelosi should rebuke the president’s most recent offer to temporarily extend protections for the so-called Dreamers. But the paper eventually explained that taking the deal would ultimately help those who came here through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) defended placing Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn) on the House Foreign Affairs Committee despite her anti-Semitic and anti-Israel views, calling it “a small step toward achieving a balanced perspective. You know, we have several Jews already on the Committee. Bringing aboard a Muslim who is not afraid to speak out against the Jewish drive toward world domination fills a vacuum that needed filling.” Pelosi admitted that “for years the Democratic Party has been hypnotized by Jewish propaganda. Given the very small population of Jews in America and the world compared to the rapidly growing number of...

    Less than three weeks after being sworn in as the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez already has more Twitter followers than Speaker Nancy Pelosi, more interactions than Barack Obama, one of C-SPAN's most-watched congressional floor speeches of all time and a ubiquitous nickname that doubles as her Twitter handle — "AOC." Democrats want to learn from her, Republicans want to destroy her and many in Washington fear being "dunked on" by her. The 29-year-old House freshman from New York is showing her older peers what the future of politics might look like once the digital natives like...

    Justice Democrats, the liberal group that engineered Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s meteoric rise — hijacking the Democratic Party in the process — is ready to go to war. The opening salvo? An eight-minute video released Wednesday starring Ocasio-Cortez and calling for a new crop of activists and community organizers to run against the Democratic machine. “If you're a one-term Congress member, so what?” Ocasio-Cortez says in the video. “You can make 10 years worth of change in one term if you're not afraid.” Justice Democrats, which orchestrated Ocasio-Cortez’s long-shot bid last year against the fourth-ranking House Democrat, Joe Crowley, hopes to replicate...

    On Thursday afternoon, President Trump informed Speaker Pelosi her “public relations” trip to Afghanistan, Egypt, and Brussels has been postponed so that she can stay in DC and negotiate with him. The President canceled Pelosi’s flight just one hour before she was scheduled to depart — Pelosi and other lawmakers were on the bus en route to the airport. Trump told her to fly commercial on her own dime. According to Fox News reporter, Chad Pergram, furious phone calls are flying back and forth from The Hill to the State to the Pentagon and White House.

    Earlier this month, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went on national television and said that the United States should tax incomes above $10 million at a 70 percent rate. In response, some centrist pundits pronounced the Democratic Party dead by political suicide: National Journal reporter Josh Kraushaar argued that, while congresswoman Rashida Tlaib’s profane call for Trump’s impeachment was getting more attention, Ocasio-Cortez “calling for a 70 percent tax rate on the nation’s most-watched news show a whole lot more politically damaging for Ds.” There was never much evidence for this assessment. In public opinion polls, raising taxes on the rich consistently ranks...

    Pelosi Statement on Trump Speech January 19, 2019 San Francisco — Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement in advance of the President’s address: “Democrats were hopeful that the President was finally willing to re-open government and proceed with a much-needed discussion to protect the border. “Unfortunately, initial reports make clear that his proposal is a compilation of several previously rejected initiatives, each of which is unacceptable and in total, do not represent a good faith effort to restore certainty to people’s lives. It is unlikely that any one of these provisions alone would pass the House, and taken together, they...

    Democrats immediately rejected President Donald Trump’s offer of a work-permit amnesty for one million registered migrants in exchange for 230 miles of new border wall. The rejection came even though Trump’s offer angered his base by trading a DACA temporary amnesty for a wall. Also, Trump did not ask for the reform of the many catch-and-release rules which allow the cartels to profitably smuggle hundreds of thousands of poor migrants into the U.S. labor market, welfare rolls, and U.S. K-12 schools.The speech came after Trump had offered a series of smaller concessions in closed-door negotiations since Christmas. Democrats quickly dismissed...

    However, Democrats in Congress had issued statements rejecting the deal as details of it leaked before Trump’s speech. “Unfortunately, initial reports make clear that his proposal is a compilation of several previously rejected initiatives, each of which is unacceptable and in total, do not represent a good faith effort to restore certainty to people’s lives,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement.

    President Trump, in a televised White House address Saturday, offered Democrats a compromise package on immigration in an effort to end the nearly monthlong partial government shutdown -- although Democrats dismissed the olive branch as a "non-starter" before Trump even spoke. Trump announced that he was prepared to back a three-year extension of protections for 700,000 immigrants who came to the country illegally as children and were shielded from deportation under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, in exchange for the $5.7 billion he has requested for a barrier on the southern border. "Walls are not immoral,"...

    Axios ^ | 1-19-19 | Caitlin Owens, Jonathan Swan
    Even before President Trump's shutdown remarks on Saturday, Democratic aides on the Hill were dismissing his planned shutdown compromise offer as inadequate. As first reported by Axios, Trump was expected to make two offers to Democrats in exchange for $5.7 billion in funds for a border wall: Extend DACA protections for Dreamers, who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, and extend the legal status of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders. But hours before the speech, Democratic Whip Dick Durbin said in a statement: "I cannot support the proposed offer as reported and do not believe it can pass...
  • The Progressive Socialist Democrats Do Not Care About the American People

    The progressive socialist Pelosi and her anti-American comrades are a pathetic reminder of what this country is becoming. Crying Chuck and his flunkies on the Capitol Steps carrying pictures of those furloughed workers was a circus act meant to put forth two messages. That these poor downtrodden workers are not getting paid and were a disgusting middle finger to the Angels moms who the day before had carried pictures of their loved ones killed by the very same illegal immigrants they represent to the offices of both Schumer and Pelosi. Both refused to see them and like cowards that they...

    Dear Mr. President, You cannot make a deal with Satan or his pit of vipers in the congress. Period. If you cave on this you will be a one-term president. The democrats will not come your way to accept your offer no matter what you offer. They sense weakness on your part and they're going to go for your jugular. They couldn't care less about the out of work government workers. This is a sledge hammer they intend to use on you no matter what. The only way you can win in this situation is to stand your ground.

    Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez expressed support for rapper Cardi B Friday after she lashed out at Trump and his “racist” supporters this week. “I do, I do,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said in response to a TMZ reporter who asked her if more people like Cardi B should speak up about politics. “I mean, Bronx girls are gonna re-open the government, okay?” she said. The socialist congresswoman also teased Mitch McConnell, saying, “We have voted to open the government and we know that we have secured Republican Senate votes to open the government, so all we need to do is have Sen....

    Do Democrats have a #MeToo problem?  Or more to the point, a pervert problem? Yet another prominent Democratic Party donor got arrested for sex with a 16-year-old.  Oregon Public Broadcasting reports: A prominent Democratic Party donor and gay rights activist has been charged with sex crimes involving a child younger than 16. Real estate developer Terry Bean pleaded not guilty to two counts of sodomy and one count of sexual abuse Thursday in Lane County court.  Prosecutors say the charges stem from an incident in September 2013.  A grand jury voted to indict Bean earlier this month, but the indictment was secret until his arraignment.

    Panned by Democrats at the time as well as their enablers in the establishment media, a memo then-majority Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee released in February 2018 — the so-called “FISA memo” — implicating FBI malfeasance in the Spygate scandal turned out to be highly accurate, according to information contained in blockbuster reports this week. On Friday we reported, citing The Hill‘s John Solomon, that former No. 4 Justice Department official Bruce Ohr told ranking FBI officials that the so-called “Russia dossier” used by the bureau to justify obtaining FISA court warrants to spy on the 2016 Trump campaign...
