Pence, McCarthy, Scalise and Thune Describe White House Meeting With Intransigent Democrats…

Vice President Mike Pence, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Minority Whip Steve Scalise and Senate Majority Whip John Thune describe the events at a White House meeting with President Trump, Speaker Pelosi, Majority Leader Hoyer, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senator Dick Durbin….  Things did not go well:


It would appear congress is at loggerheads over border security, with democrats unwilling to provide any funding that might secure the southern border.  Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have stated the border is secure; there are no illegal border crossings actually taking place; and there is no crisis.  As such, the partial government shutdown continues.

    I’m hoping that moderate Democrats representatives are watching this and becoming very afraid of their leaders. I’m hoping they realize that they’re going to lose their jobs in the next election if they don’t take over the negotiations and work this out. Nancy Pelosi has completely lost her marbles. She seems to think the old politics is still in effect – where everyone believes your sound bite for the press. The country moved past that when they elected Trump. There was a real difference between Pence/Scalise/McCarthy’s remarks and hers. She’s in trouble if she doesn’t see that.

      Democrats don’t need voters now that they have “voter harvesting” and they can pull the needed votes out of the closet to win any election they so desire. Meanwhile the Republicans looked the other way on purpose until the Dems stole the House. Disgusting.

        So, if Homeland Security agents were out there “observing” the mid-term to see how the fraud works, why weren’t those tainted elections declared as such and declared void, and then a special election held? If they “observed” to find the problems and protect the 2020 election, well ok but we’re still stuck with fraud socialists in the House, possibly the Senate. Gawd, what an unholy mess!

    This is a real war. Lots of people are dying in this war.

    I was watching a documentary today of the War in the Pacific in World War II. The only way to achieve a surrender of the enemy is to make the price of continuing the war far too great. The first atomic bomb did not do it. it took two and President Truman’s promise to keep dropping them until the Japanese surrendered.

    This is a real war for the survival of America. The enemies of American survival must face a price too high for them to continue. They are proving not to be Americans at all but communist/globalist traitors.

    There is no middle ground on securing our country’s borders. It must be done no matter what we have to do to these traitors. As with the Japanese in 1945, we will not negotiate the enemy’s surrender terms for the loss of our country. We save the USA at ALL COSTS ! We pledge to give up NOTHING ! This is ZERO SUM. We win. They lose. Period.

      I’m just sayin’ that I’ve seen reports (I didn’t archive them, so if you don’t believe me, you’ll have to do the research) that Japan wanted to surrender, but the US wanted to show the USSR what we had, so they dropped two bombs to show we had more than just the one.

      A wall will be nice but why did we have to wait 2 years to get to this point? IMO real, lasting damage has already been done.

Add not only national voter ID but fingerprint like in some middle eastern countries. Scan and verify before votes count. That might help with all these boxes of “found” votes once election officials know how many votes are needed (Snipes).

        That’s a Communist Democrat Party lie.

        Japan’s military dictatorship thought the U.S. only had the one bomb.
        (Russia had so many American Traitor spies they already knew there were many bombs.)

        So their attitude was identical to Nan-Chuck, “Only citizens died. Continue the War.”. Japan did not respond in the 10 or so days allowed, so they own the bombs dropped.

        Truman saved hundreds of millions of Japanese lives by ending the war then.

      You’re on to something, and it doesn’t involve just Schumer and Pelosi. Besides illegals, the completed wall will put a VERY serious crimp in drug trafficking into this country. With no open ground to cross over, everyone wanting to come north from MX is going to have to go through one of a number of portals that can at last be closely monitored and much more heavily inspected (if USBP/ICE/USCS don’t decide to radically cut their work forces after the wall is up, but instead reassign existing personnel to those border crossings to radically beef up the number of inspectors assigned to each). The odds of being caught with dope in your car or truck will then rise to the point of practically guaranteeing a negative return for the smuggler’s investment. That means the only ways to get dope into this country will become via water or air – and both of those can be closely monitored. Re: who is profiting from our current disgraceful state of affairs re: the amount of drugs coming into our country – we need to take a hard look at the senior civil servants – the SESers – running the DEA. I don’t mean the presidential appointees who are named to head them, temporarily. I mean the people who have been in place 20, 30, 40 years in those agencies that should be working hard to close that border. They occupy the best of two worlds; rolling over for the cartels means payoff money, if they are in fact engaged in such activity. Plus they draw their federal salaries (which for SES personnel are lucrative indeed). They will continue to draw their salaries as long as this “war on drugs” drags on. Either way, they’ve got it made.

      Obviously, the tidal wave of drugs crossing our southern border is a national security matter; so are the diseases we are now seeing more and more frequently crossing the border with the illegals. The USPHS and CDCP are both admitting we are seeing a rise in diseases we thought we had eliminated in this country through aggressive public health policies plus immunization requirements for our citizens. What’s worse, though, is the appearance of diseases we can determine are adaptations or mutations of those we had previously eliminated – indicating a stronger, very drug resistant strain of an old one; or we are seeing some diseases we didn’t know existed. One example is the apparent mutated strain of polio that inflicts paralysis on its victims (CDCP seems to admit they believe that’s what this disease is, yet their press releases don’t come right out and say it’s a resurgence of polio or a newer, far more aggressive and drug resistant strain being brought up here. One thing that is rock-solid certain is that American citizens – mostly children – have died from exposure to this disease. It was never seen up here until illegals began arriving in ever-increasing numbers, and information in the media seems to indicate it has been noticed more frequently in close proximity to areas where large numbers of illegal aliens are encamped or given sanctuary.

      I submit the appearance of these diseases is as much a threat to national security as the drugs are. One of the many possibilities of terrorist attack the FBI, as well as DHS and other anti-terror organizations have studied in the past, and continue to study, is bacteriological warfare employed against the American population as a means of terror attack. What is the difference between a never-before-seen strain of polio or some other lethal disease brought in by a terrorist attack team – and the same thing brought in by illegal aliens, who are NEVER inspected for health issues when they cross our border?

      Why do Chuck and Nancy not want a wall? We can count the several reasons.

      1) Their donors don’t want a wall. They want cheap labor. They want lax immigration law enforcement. They DON’T want amnesty, however, otherwise they’d need a replacement workforce.
      2) For sanctuary states, they get extra seats in the House if they have more illegals counted in the census.
      3) They believe it makes them popular with the hispanic and latino communities, a majority of whom vote Democrat.

      How many diehard American HATING MArxist are there in the USA. Rasmussen give us a glimmer:

      December 2009 Rasmussen Reports: Tea Party Tops GOP on Three-Way Generic Ballot

      “Suppose the Tea Party organized itself as a political party. When thinking about the next election for Congress, would you vote for the Republican candidate from your district, the Democratic candidate from your district or the Tea Party candidate from your district?

      Democratic — 36%
      Tea Party — 23%
      Republican — 18%
      Not sure — 22% “

      The Media has lost all control of the narrative:
      06/27/18 poll reported in the Hill:
      Poll: 72 percent say traditional outlets ‘report news they know to be fake, false, or purposely misleading’ – OUCH!


      Since that 2009 Rasmussen poll people have increasingly woken up to the fact that the MSM is the Propaganda Arm of the Elite:

      Only 6% of Americans trust the media
      Apr, 2016 “[….]A survey of more than 2,000 adults released on Sunday showed that trust in the media has dipped to dramatically low levels. About 52 percent of respondents said they have “some confidence” in the press, while 41 percent said they have “hardly any confidence.”

      Over the last two decades, research shows the public has grown increasingly skeptical of the news industry,” the report from the American Press Institute reads. “The study reaffirms that consumers do value broad concepts of trust like fairness, balance, accuracy, and completeness. At least two-thirds of Americans cite each of these four general principles as very important to them.” […]”

      And more recently:
      60% of Americans believe MSM reports fake news
      “[…]The Monmouth University poll, published Wednesday, found that Republicans (79 percent) were most likely to say that major news outlets transmit fake news stories, compared to 66 percent of Independents and 43 percent of Democrats.
      The survey found that even more people distrust online news websites, with a whopping 80 percent believing such outlets report fake news regularly or occasionally…

      The three groups of respondents were more equally aligned on the topic of whether online news outlets report fake news deliberately, with Republicans and Independents tied at 57 percent. Democrats weren’t far behind, at 52 percent.[…]”

      Poll: Majority says mainstream media publishes fake news
      “[…]Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the mainstream press is full of fake news, a sentiment that is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum.

      According to data from the latest Harvard-Harris poll, which was provided exclusively to The Hill, 65 percent of voters believe there is a lot of fake news in the mainstream media.

      That number includes 80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats. Eighty-four percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online.[…]”

      And a January 2018 politico article.
      “[…]“The big takeaway is that Trump’s media marketing campaign is working, not just on his core, but on Republicans in general,” she said.

      Other key findings of the survey: Even as 84 percent say the media play a “critical” or “very important” role in our democracy, 43 percent of respondents had a very or somewhat unfavorable view of the press, with 33 percent favorable and 23 percent neutral. Just 15 percent of Republicans had a favorable view, with 68 percent unfavorable. Democrats replied 54 percent favorable, 18 percent unfavorable.

      Americans, Gill said, “see the media as a key and important part of our democracy but don’t see it as fulfilling that role.” […]” h t t ps://

    Random thoughts:
    Paul Ryan, former Speaker of the House, is solely responsible for his own failure as Speaker, and for the soiling of his own reputation. His grandest failure, however, was to diss POTUS PDJT for two full years, while feigning loyalty to the American people who elected President Trump. Easy to see who won that rodeo.

    Willard Mitt Romney, Freshman, Junior Senator, not exactly from Utah but representing Utah, picked Paul Ryan as his running mate, based on Ryan’s visual aid of a postcard posing as an IRS tax filing document. Now, years after their stunning joint failure, Willard emerges from the dank, dark corner where he’s been biding his time, launches, in revolt against PDJT, and gets publicly trounced again – this time by his own niece. *You cannot make this stuff up!

    SOTU: Mr. President, please, please, end your address in the Chamber with, “Can You Hear Me Now?” And look Mitch, Willard, and Chuncy straight in the eye.

    “Democrats Pocket Trump Concessions in Border Wall Talks”

    This is Trump’s idea of “negotiations?” Trump is making all the concessions, that is not negotiating, THAT is caving just like I knew he would.

    One of the concession was re-starting a Obama era program named CAM. The US “airlifts” children in El Salvador, Guatemala and Hondorous to their illegal parents here in the US on our dime.

    I knew Trump would basically cave, but tough tweet that he’s holding the line.

    So here’s what’s going to happen, I’d bet a paycheck on it.

    Trump’s going to the border today. He will come back and say “we are further along than I thought and I am satisfied with the progress…so I can no longer justify the continuing of the gov’t shutdown. (with a lot of “great, bigly, fantastic, best thrown in).

    The Dems will get all those concessions mentioned above and the US taxpayer gets the shaft again.
