NBC News political reporter Kasie Hunt told MSNBC watchers that while many Senate Democrats were voting for to end the federal government shutdown Monday, there are others voting to extend the shutdown because they are running for president.

“One thing that is unfolding now on the Senate floor that I think is noteworthy, we’re hearing that Senator Warren plans to vote ‘no,’ she may have already voted no,” said Hunt, who at the time getting live updates from her colleagues at the Senate Press Gallery.

“Kamala Harris of California, Bernie Sanders, what do these people have in common?” she asked. “These are people who are likely running for president in 2020.”

The final roll call vote was 81-18, with Sen. John S. McCain III (R.-Ariz.) not voting.

In the Senate, routine legislation requires 60 votes to end debate and force a floor vote, and there are only 51 Republicans. By withholding the votes the GOP needed to reach 60, Senate Democrats kept the “debate” open, preventing the Republicans from bringing up the House’s continuing resolution for a vote.

The Senate Democrats were holding back their support because they were demanding permanent amnesty for the young illegal aliens covered by President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Funding for the federal government expired Friday, so the government was technically “shutdown” over the weekend–until the Democratic leadership relented.

The Republicans voting against the shutdown bill that would keep the government open until Feb. 8, were: Utah’s Sen. Michael S. Lee and Kentucky’s Sen. Randal H. “Rand” Paul.

The Democrats voting to extend the shutdown were: New Jersey’s Sen. Cory A. Booker, New York’s Sen. Kirsten E. Gillibrand, California’s Sen. Kamala D. Harris, Connecticut’s Sen. Christopher S. Murphy, Massachusetts’ Sen. Elizabeth Warren–along with Vermont’s Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is an Independent, but who caucuses with Democrats.


RINO Maria Salazar Challenges Former Trump Advisor Steven Miller on America First Immigration Policy

This freshman is a dangerous RINO.



Rep. Maria Salazar (R-FL) has barely been in the federal swamp for a month, and she is already working to undermine former president Donald Trump’s “America First” immigration agenda.

Salazar, who was a journalist with the fake news media before running for Congress, took aim at former Trump advisor Stephen Miller, who was credited as the force behind President Trump’s strongest immigration policies. She slammed Miller on a call with her House colleagues to ingratiate herself with the globalists and secure those fat Chamber of Koch checks.

Politico broke the news about the heated exchange between Salazar and Miller, which apparently continued in private as well:

Salazar is repeating her corporate-sponsored talking points, but President Trump proved her conventional wisdom wrong in 2020. Trump brought in Hispanics to the Republican Party unlike any political figure before him by standing for the rule of law against marauding Black Lives Matter terrorists and other left-wing thugs at war with civilization.

Big League Politics has reported on Hispanics supporting Trump because they understand the crime and degeneracy that illegal immigration brings to America:

The media constantly fear-mongered about president Donald Trump’s immigration policies ever since he declared his run for office and continued to do so well into his presidency.

The conventional wisdom was that these measures would repel Hispanics across the nation and turn them into a monolithic vote for the Democrat Party. 

That did not turn out to be the case in 2020. Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner wrote that Trump’s immigration hawk policies “won broad bipartisan and Hispanic support in the election and even turned several border towns red for the first time in years.”

Per two reviews, a majority of Hispanics and Democrats were in favor of the Trump administration’s efforts to limit immigration during the Wuhan virus pandemic. Similarly, voters in southern border counties reacted negatively to the radical Left’s attacks levied against U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform conducted a voter exit survey, where it found that 78 percent of those surveyed believe immigration was an “important” issue for them and played a huge role in who they ended up pulling the lever for. 80 percent supported Trump’s border closure to prevent the Wuhan virus from spreading.

Similarly, Zogby Analytics released a survey showing that 60 percent of Hispanics and 54 percent of Democrats support Trump’s immigration reductions to protect American jobs. Zogby also found similar views among those surveyed about the cuts being good to “maintain our nation’s population.”

FAIR President Dan Stein believes that the election results serve as a warning to Joe Biden and his desire to open up the borders and pass an amnesty bill for the millions of illegal aliens residing in the U.S.

“The election results clearly do not indicate that President-elect Biden has a mandate to institute radical immigration policies being promoted by his party’s far-left wing that include erasing borders and flooding the country with millions of new legal and illegal immigrants,” Stein declared. The FAIR president cited a 76 percent supermajority of those surveyed who are in favor of immigration restriction.

By standing against immigration patriotism and the MAGA agenda, Salazar has exposed herself as a RINO. She will be promoted by the GOP establishment along other frauds like Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) as they attempt to nullify President Trump’s legacy.
