Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is attempting to block President Donald J. Trump from delivering the annual State of the Union address in the midst of the partial federal government shutdown.
“Pelosi said the partial shutdown has hamstrung both the U.S. Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security, potentially harming the security planning that precedes the primetime address,” according to Politico.
Pelosi’s security argument is disingenuous at best. This, from the leader of the party that has been advocated for violence against Trump since his campaign? This reporter isn’t buying it.
Rather, Pelosi is likely attempting to block Trump from having the entire nation as an audience to make a case for the border wall. If the government is still shutdown on the date of the speech, Jan. 29, Americans will be more anxious than ever to get the feds back to work. Allowing Trump an audience to bulldoze the uncooperative Democrats who are holding up the deal under those circumstances could have a devastating impact on the for the political left.
“Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th,” Pelosi reportedly wrote in a letter to Trump.
The shutdown remains in a stalemate on day 25, with Trump waiting at the White House for them to accept his terms. He continued to turn up the heat on Twitter Wednesday morning.
“It is becoming more and more obvious that the Radical Democrats are a Party of open borders and crime. They want nothing to do with the major Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border,” he said.

Coronavirus Stimulus Contains Whopping $350 Million Refugee Resettlement Boondoggle
This has nothing to do with the virus, or the economy.
It appears that a $350 million dollar appropriation for purposes of “Migration and Refugee Assistance” managed to slip inside the coronavirus stimulus package.
Populist commentator Ryan Girdusky first reported on the hidden boondoggle as the legislation was being prepared for a Senate vote Wednesday night. It’s one of several unrelated pork planks in the massive $2 trillion stimulus that was able to slip in without the scrutiny of Republican senators.

The proposal to enrich refugee resettlement contractors appears to have migrated into the legislation originally introduced by Mitch McConnell from Nancy Pelosi’s rivaling proposal. The Speaker of the House had temporarily derailed the stimulus package by introducing a plan of her own, but from the looks of it, she’s getting a crucial element of the left-wing social agenda Democrats have tried to tie to the stimulus with the refugee resettlement package.
Florida’s Matt Gaetz appears to be one of the few members of Congress to question the totally unrelated refugee giveaway in the moment of legislative urgency.

Nominal charitable and non-profit entities have gamed and rigged the American refugee resettlement process for years, enriching themselves to the tunes of tens of millions of dollars if not more on the taxpayer dime. Migration skeptics have long questioned the utility of such an arrangement, pointing out that spending hundreds millions of dollars to resettle people in the United States could be used to far greater effect in providing relief for displaced peoples closer to their homes countries.
Existing refugee resettlement programs have continued in spite of the raging coronavirus pandemic. More than 3,000 people have been resettled in the United States since January, when the disease began surfacing on the radar of the federal government.
The Washington D.C. Swamp appears to have succeeded in utilizing one of its oldest cards in this instance, attaching a totally unrelated refugee proposal to a sorely needed economic relief package. It’s likely the proposal would have shot down on other circumstances, but congressional Democrats ultimately proved tactful enough to advance their preferred and entirely unrelated special interest in a moment of great legislative urgency.
