Vice-President Mike Pence Leads Weekend Border Security Negotiations, Secretary Nielsen Briefs Congressional Staffers…

Vice President Mike Pence, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and White House Advisor Jared Kushner hold weekend meetings with a team of senior Democrat congressional resistance staffers to negotiate appropriations funding for border security.

According to a post meeting press update provided by the office of the Vice President:

Secretary Nielsen was able to provide a full briefing on the crisis at the Southern border.  The conversation was productive and they agreed to meet again tomorrow afternoon.

There was no in depth conversation about dollar figure, but the priorities for security. VP reiterated President’s position that we need funding for the border wall.

Democrats requested further details in writing on needs of DHS. We will provide this tonight/tomorrow.  (link)

We note the Democrat congressional leadership are putting on a show of political strength. There are no elected democrats present in the negotiations; their personal time is retained to enjoy the indulgences of office, and staff are dispatched to the negotiation table.

The partial government shutdown continues amid the orchestrated political games of career democrat lawmakers.

    President Donald J. Trump talked with Nancy and Chuckie and now he has given Mike Pence the task of getting the DemonizingRat minions to work out their list of demands. Why should President Donald J. Trump be their punching bag?

    These DemonizingRat staff minions are in the position of either putting up an effort to compromise or to stonewall and be intransigent. If they choose, intransigence, President Donald J. Trump can announce that the DemonizingRats refuse to cooperate in reopening the government and, therefore, the government will remain closed until the DemonizingRats choose to negotiate in good faith.

      Why even have a meeting! The House was shutdown until Tuesday and they went home. Quit accommodating these b******ds. If chuck and nancy can’t stay around, do nothing and make them come to the table. This is lunacy! And don’t hand it off to Kushner and lower level administrators!

        The “meeting” is to give the DemonizingRats a way to figure out how they can “blink” and not lose face.

        President Donald J. Trump has spoken at length. He invited the principals to work things out with him and they stuck their thumbs in his eye and went on T.V. and blustered and babbled about it. Clearly, President Donald J. Trump is on to other things and his small team of designees are available to the DemonizingRats to abuse at will. They are like those sand loaded inflated punching targets for 4 year olds to smack down which pop right back up to take another hit. Eventually the little kid gets bored.

        The point is, if there is going to be a deadlock, it will be declared after the DemonizingRats have failed in every way to compromise. That is why “even have a meeting.” Something might come of it. Otherwise, it can be summed up in one word: Optics.

        Oh, and Pence, Kushner and Nielsen get to see the DemonizingRat brain trust at work. That is to their particular advantage.

    Paging Pelosi/Schumer:

    FTA : A new poll reveals that very few Americans say that illegal immigration is not a problem.

    A wide-ranging Economist/YouGov survey gauged the level of concern Americans have on the issue to find that only 7 percent of the overall public say illegal immigration is “not a problem”; 2 percent of Republicans, 7 percent of independents and even 12 percent of Democrats agree with the statement.

    Amid non-stop news coverage of the President Trump’s battle to fund a border wall and the Central American caravan, the poll suggests that public worry is pronounced — almost two thirds says illegal immigration is a serious problem, with some predictable partisan divides.

    IMHO,
    Anegotiating team of 3 is ideal; One plays hard nose (presumably nielson, representing her agency, which wants the wall.
    One plays easy going, willing to consider compromises (pence, perhaps).
    And the third either seems to vacillate between the two positions, or is non commital.

    Sending 20 aids is rediculous;
    Camel= a horse designed by committee.

    If they expected a deal their base,would cheer, THE CONGRESSPERSONS would be there.

    Ergo, they are either not expecting yo reach agreement, or more likely they expect to reach an agreement their base won’t like, at all.

    HOW is this not a win/win, for PDJT?
    Either they give him 5.6, or he declares a,State of Emergency, granting him a lot more authorities, including to ignore court injunctions with impunity.

    They may have thought they rolled him last year with a lesser amount, but he needed time to buy the right of way, and resolve eminent domain. He got enough to, in fact buy the right of way, so he,didn’t ‘settle for less’; he got what he needed.

      Good points but I wonder if President Trump prefers the standard budget approval process over an EO because he fears a future admin could more easily deconstruct the wall by simply lifting the State of Emergency order?

        He WOULD “prefer”…And he gives them all kinds of opportunities to comply, negotiate in good faith, look at the evidence, care about normal Americans, DO THEIR DUTY, BUT… When they will not, when they violate their oaths and betray their constituents, and openly defy THOSE THINGS, HE BRINGS THE HAMMER DOWN.

        He reminds of the biblical God, who suffers long with us, gives choices and warnings, lets us choose, and then if we insist, lets us have what we want. And THAT is the worst thing that can happen to us. Our president is doing the same.

        Now, how biblical is THAT?!?

        If you watch his behavior, he always wants to do it the constitutional way, trying to use EOs only to undo previous EOs, as is his right. But Congress in the Uniparty is loathe to actually enact major legislation, and shirk their duty. So he resorts to EOs, hoping to codify them into law in proper order.

    I know the Trump derangement syndrome is strong but how does
    it make sense, if POTUS is willing to negotiate and give the DEMS
    SOMETHING in exchange for the wall (Daca, Chuck little pet project
    for NYC, whatever) but they force him to declare an emergency and he
    uses defense money and builds the wall the they get NOTHING.. so
    they want to resist so bad they want to get NOTHING..And POTUS
    still gets his wall??

    I am convinced the Dems will never approve the wall. To do so in their eyes sets their fate in 2020 and forward. It would eliminate their voting base, reverse the chaotic mind blowing rhetoric, and restore balance in the country. They would die.

    The Master deal maker is not seen in this picture – neither is Stephen Miller whom I believe would be key in assuring that the Presidents demands are met in his absence! The American people are behind the Presidents stand 110% – no money – no deal – and not a penny less than the $5.6B he has asked for – for National Security and the Wall to be constructed will be acceptable!

    It is way past time for the American public to realize we are NOT dealing with a sell-out politician – we elected an honest businessman who is delivering on his word – something NO politician has ever done – and more than likely ever will!

    For the record, the timing must be impeccable. It is not a timing of our choosing, yet rather of Gods’ choosing.

    The dems, they shall fail, just as Nehemiah’s enemies failed and the wall was built. So must our wall be built, for it is a restoration of our national identity. God made the first borders, the first requirements to remain in a place. Once those requirements were ignored, the illegals were expunged from the garden. A new system was created and when that was ignored, requirements for salvation were made, that was put in place for all life, man and beast alike.

    Finally, the set of laws was written down, and requirements for living in the chosen nation were made. Borders were instituted and laws were enforced. Many did not obey, so the nation was scattered, the people flung to the ends of the earth.

    The Savior arrived and has a set of requirements to enter into paradise. Border security is strictly adhered to and no one may sneak in. There is but one way to enter, no other way exists. This is written for those that say Jesus loves everyone….yes, He does, but no one gets a free pass because of that love.

    So, our nation needs to re-establish her borders to preserve our Constitution, our Declaration of Independence,our sovereignty.

    God bless.

    IMHO Pres. Trump should stop paying Congress until a deal is in place. They aren’t doing their jobs, so they shouldn’t get paid, just like the furloughed federal workers. In fact, let’s include Congress with the nonessential departments. That would encourage a little less grandstanding and more work.

    Not one foot of the wall has been built, so far. There have been some repairs and small extensions to existing fences, but no serious barrier construction anywhere. The Dems will force Trump to use his National Emergency powers to build any wall with the military and its budget. So much for improvements for our military. Even if Trump actually gets the military to build the wall, the next Dem President will terminate all construction efforts on day 1, for the betterment of our national defense, ironically. In fact, just about everything Trump has done, he has had to do by Executive Orders, all of which will be rescinded immediately upon the arrival of any Democarp.
    We have to get Congress to act if we want anything to be permanent. A tall order, I think. The Global/Commie elitists have been in power too long and we may never recover even if we can figure out a way to keep them from pulling all the strings in Washington.
