Sunday Talks: Steny Hoyer Outlines Legislative Resistance Approach Using UniParty Ally Mitch McConnell…

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer appears on Meet The Press to outline how the House will use political theater, with their ally Mitch McConnell, to weaken the border security position of President Donald Trump.

When you accept that Senate Leader McConnell is actually on their team, things begin to make more sense. Democrats are providing cover for their UniParty ally, Mitch, by framing the optic of McConnell allied with President Trump.  The entire process is a predictable and well planned insider game of optics and political theater.

      McConnel is in on it I have no doubt though now he has a problem.

      This narrative is being framed as Trump being in the driver seat which for better or worse for McConnel unless he wants to be exposed has to go with whatever Trump is saying on the subject.

        Bottom line. There are certain things POTUS can do to make Mitch and the CoC’s life miserable. POTUS does have ammo. Its a game of chess. The CoC also does not want higher payroll, corporate, or personal taxes. They dont want more regulations, higher minimum wages or a living wages. So The CoC wont be rolling in bed with the Dems anytime soon. The CoC is not going to die on the immigration hill. POTUS can throw them more work visas in exchange for the Steel Wall. Made by american Steel by american workers. Mitch is in the tank but mitch doesnt get everything that he wants.

        • Unfortunately, maintaining a steady supply of indentured servants is the hill that the CoC will choose to die on. The reasons why are somewhat complicated and this thread is probably dying out . . . but if you wish to discuss, send a quick response and I will give my thoughts.

              Economy of words does not equate to condescension.

              The Senate has authority to remove the President per the US Constitution.
              Article 1, Section 3
              6: The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.

              7: Judgment in Cases of impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.

              So it is actually expressly “self-evident” that McConnell CAN defeat Trump.

              The “Will he?” remains to be seen and there are many legitimate arguments for why he would not. But that can quickly change if, for example, the economy tanks.

              Only 19 more votes are needed in the “removal column” thanks to Romney clearly telegraphing his sole reason for coming to the Senate.
              and it’s probably less than that
              and the House Dems haven’t even started stirring up potential “impeachable crimes”.

      1. Funded Obamacare 100%.
      2. Did zero police on border security (aside from Trump and yes even Sessions).
      3. Refuses to use constitutional authority to pass Trump’s agenda.
      4. Weakened the Trump tax cuts.
      5. Undermined Trump at every critical turn.

        The RINO establishment in DC has their own interests to protect, almost all of which are diametrically opposed to President Trump’s agenda. They are for pure corporate welfare, blocking any end to unlimited immigration, and generally letting the Democrats run our wider society as they see fit. They answer to corporate forces more or less run now by the Left.

        These are the people that still control the Senate and certain critical elements in the House. They hope to merely outlast Trump and block anything he may accomplish that would set back their own agenda. It’s why the last two years have been less than fruitful for conservative legislative policymaking.

        Just about the only thing they agree with on Trump is heavily funding the Army/Military Industrial Complex, rewarding friendly DOD contractors.

        “To close out the week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) indicated that Trump could expect no assistance from the Senate in overcoming the deadlock over the funding of the wall and reopening the government. There were also some ruminations in the press about McConnell being unable to guarantee that Trump’s nominees will get confirmed—despite the GOP having even greater control over the Senate than it previously held.”

    • Nigella, remember that just at Christmas break last year the House DID pass a bill that did have the $5 billion for the wall in it. Mitch wouldn’t call back the senators who had left early, for their umpteenth vacation, for a vote on the bill. So who is really at fault? I don’t trust him at all to work with our President. Plus he has Cornyn whispering in his ear not to.

      Before we get too enthused with ‘Tea Party’ members, please recall that Senator Jeff Flake; Miserable Martha McSally; along with Mark Sanford and Tim Scott, both of South Carolina, were all members of the Tea Party.

      Additionally, Cory Gardner and Tom Cotton were supported by the Tea Party, although I’m not sure that they, themselves, identify as such.

      And, while this is just my opinion, I’ve become more and more disillusioned by both Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, as time moves forward and they reveal more about themselves.

      There are quite a few good Tea Party members still serving in Congress, but I don’t think TP membership is a universal qualifier for all that is right, just, and worthy. Perhaps it would be beneficial to look outside the confines of DC, in locating help for our PDJT.

    Imagine what Americans lives would be like if “our” government simply did it’s job and worked in the interests of the people

    The wealth this country has, the brainpower, the innovation. Americans of all colors and stripes could be living with the highest standards in the world. We’d all enjoy a pretty safe, peaceful and prosperous existence

    But no, we’ve allowed filthy whores to grasp the reigns of power. Every single day, it’s another sellout slap in the face, as these miscreants sell out our country to the globalist cabal, and use identity politics to further divide us all for even more personal power

    At least with dictatorships, you know you’re enslaved and screwed, but these scumbags are worse. Under the guise of freedom and our Constitution, they stick a shiv in our backs on a daily basis

    You’d think maybe, just maybe they’d realize they have enough money and they should start thinking about their country, their own people and their own children’s futures

    Yet nothing, absolutely nothing can deter them from their treasonous treachery

    They are truly the lowest life form on the planet

      You make the really good point that a national ID would cure a ton of ills in this country. Of course, it would have to be non-counterfeit-able. The last time I renewed my driver’s license here in blue Nevada, I got the super-duper version and had to provide a few extra documents to get it. I’m thinking it’s along the lines of a national ID, but I don’t know for sure.

The “super” license requires an original birth certificate and other proof of citizenship, like an original Social Security card. Registration to vote is automatic now, when you get or renew your driver’s license, but you can opt out of Registration. 75,000 illegal ballots were cast in California in 2016, by the way.

    To properly frame this for those who are not in the know about McConnell:

    McConnell could have changed the rule to allow a simple majority to pass the House bill providing funding and the President would have signed it.

    McConnell made this valuation judgment: LOSS OF LIFE is the preferred alternative to changing the senate FILIBUSTER RULE (like they did for supreme court justices). The Wall would put a halt to overland trekking of illegals, both saving them the misery, rape, sickness, and death as well as preventing the incidence of malaise and death to the U.S. citizens with their arrival.

Either the Dems cave or enough rhinos jump ship to overcome the veto- assuming PTrump doesn’t cave (I don’t think he will cave).

    Attention:

    We have divided government.

    Dems control the House. The Press is the propaganda arm of the Dems.

    And yes, there are Rinos in the Senate. These Rinos are not Trump supporters like we are. They do not see the world like we do. Many of them don’t like President Trump, they don’t agree with his MAGA agenda.

    Deal with it.

    So what is the best strategy going forward given these REALITIES?

    President Trump has to deal with this on a real time basis. Whiners and complainers like Anne Coulter don’t have to dig in now like our President does. They are just selling books, getting attention.

    And for those who see back stabbers in every shadow, it’s time to suck it up and face facts. Yeah they are scum bags, but President Trump has to govern. He has to make the right decisions that impact our entire country. He will need allies, however imperfect and untrustworthy they may be. And by the way, If Mitch was “100% in on it” he would have put the Dem’s latest bill on the Senate floor for a vote by now. Yes, he’s a fish-faced supporter of the Establishment/Global Corporations. But that’s who he is. So deal with it. That’s the world we live in, the world President Trump must navigate if he is to succeed.

    The only way forward is to negotiate and control the process as best we can so we win on the critical issues. It will not be 100% in our favor. That ship sailed in November.

    We need to win the American public back to our side, win the crowd back, so we can retake the House, get this President re-elected, and jam home as much of the MAGA agenda as possible after 2020.

  33. Perot Conservative says:

    NY Post: “In 2004, current Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife, current US Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, had an average net worth of $3.1 million. Ten years later, that number had increased to somewhere between $9.2 million and $36.5 million.”

    “… It may have been acquired, according to Schweizer, thanks to the couple’s fealty to China, the source of the Chao family fortune.”

    “Secret Empires,” the new book from the “Clinton Cash” and “Throw Them All Out” author, details myriad examples of corruption from members of Congress …”

    “As Schweizer tells it, the Chao family fortune derives from the Foremost Group…

    The success of Foremost is largely due to its close ties to the Chinese government, in particular the China State Shipbuilding Corp. (CSSC), a corporation with which Foremost has done “large volumes of business.”

    The CSSC, Schweizer writes, is “a state-owned defense conglomerate … at the heart of the Chinese government’s military-industrial complex.” The main goal of the CSSC is to strengthen the Chinese military. James and Angela Chao have both sat on the board of a CSSC offshoot.

    ***While Foremost is an American company, “their ships have been constructed by Chinese government shipyards, and some of their construction financed by the Chinese government.” In addition, writes Schweizer, “their crews are largely Chinese,” despite US Transportation Secretary and company founder’s daughter Elaine Chao having once said that “ships crewed by Americans are ‘a vital part of our national security.’”***

    Given all this, it’s worth noting how both McConnell and Chao, in their roles as high-ranking US officials, have personally interacted with, and then gone considerably soft on, China since their 1993 wedding.

    “When Senator McConnell — who took hardline positions against China prior to his marriage — met with high-ranking Chinese officials in 1994, it was not in his capacity as senator, but via a personal invitation from the CSSC arranged by James Chao. McConnell met with Zemin, then the country’s president, and vice-premiere Li Lanqing. After this meeting, McConnell “would increasingly avoid public criticism of China.” More meetings like it would follow in the years to come.

    “As the Chaos and the Chinese government went into business together, the Chaos-McConnells tied their economic fate to the good fortunes of Beijing,” Schweizer writes. “Were McConnell to critique Beijing aggressively or support policies damaging to Chinese interests, Beijing could severely damage the family’s economic fortunes.”

    “In the ensuing years, McConnell has loudly defended China in its actions against Hong Kong and Taiwan, even claiming that “the United States needed to be ‘ambiguous’ as to whether we would come to the defense of Taiwan if attacked by China.” When Sen. Jesse Helms introduced the Taiwan Security Enhancement Act, pledging support for Taiwanese independence, in 1999, it had “twenty-one co-sponsors and heavy Republican support. But McConnell was not on the list.”

    “McConnell also fought attempts to punish China for vigorously undervaluing its currency…

    “Chao has also done her part to support her ancestral home. One example.

    When she served as Secretary of Labor under George W. Bush, her department resisted efforts to “call out the Chinese government over its workers rights practices.” When a petition was filed against China on the subject of worker’s rights based on the US Trade Act of 1974, Chao opposed it.”

Be has also indicating the declaration of a “national emergency.” This isn’t bluster. It is a power granted to the president.

    10 U.S. Code § 2808 – Construction authority in the event of a declaration of war or national emergency

    https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/10/2808

    (a) In the event of a declaration of war or the declaration by the President of a national emergency in accordance with the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) that requires use of the armed forces, the Secretary of Defense, without regard to any other provision of law, may undertake military construction projects, and may authorize the Secretaries of the military departments to undertake military construction projects, not otherwise authorized by law that are necessary to support such use of the armed forces. Such projects may be undertaken only within the total amount of funds that have been appropriated for military construction, including funds appropriated for family housing, that have not been obligated.
    (b) When a decision is made to undertake military construction projects authorized by this section, the Secretary of Defense shall notify, in an electronic medium pursuant to section 480 of this title, the appropriate committees of Congress of the decision and of the estimated cost of the construction projects, including the cost of any real estate action pertaining to those construction projects.
    (c) The authority described in subsection (a) shall terminate with respect to any war or national emergency at the end of the war or national emergency.

    The notification if congress will be done as soon as POTUS instructs the sec. Of defense to do so. Its coming, decipticons or no. Remember the military bidget, was for more than asked for by a ….. Particular amount.
