President Donald Trump is sending the very clear message that he does not plan to re-open the federal government anytime soon, forcing Democrats to play ball in an increasingly one-sided standoff.
The Senate re-convenes at 4 pm Thursday afternoon but there are no votes expected, and some House members will also be meeting in Washington. A number of members are staying away in their districts, and thus require 24-hour notice of any votes, so don’t anticipate a vote today.
The members are probably going to be talking in hushed tones along the lines of “What do we do?” and “Is he seriously going to keep the government shut down?” And the answer would be yes, President Trump is going to keep the government shut down.
“Whatever it takes” he vowed Wednesday during his inspiring trip to Iraq to visit the troops. Mark Meadows, who has had recent conversations with the president, also told the nation to expect a bullish stance from Trump, with no re-opening of the government unless there is $5 billion in hand for the Border Wall.
Trump’s position is a lot stronger than it was on Christmas Eve, when the stock market was tanking due to the Federal Reserve vindictively raising interest rates yet again as part of a years-old bond selloff. The stock market bounced back strong the day after Christmas, spelling bad news for Chuck Schumer in these negotiations. The Dow dropped again Thursday, but it’s clear that Trump is not responsible for the back-and-forth swings of the market manipulators.
Trump is not plunging the nation into chaos, as the globalist mainstream media likes to claim. Much to the contrary, he is fighting against the chaos caused by criminal gangs including Ms-13 treating our Southern border like an imaginary line that can be easily criss-crossed. The border is seen as just a small and relatively unchallenging obstacle for cartels pushing heroin into the United States. The world laughs at our border security efforts. No longer.
President Trump is fighting for the safety of the country, and wonderfully he is not a career politician. He is in this position as a rookie politician, a career building tycoon who felt that he had no choice but to be president because the political establishment sadly is so corrupt from years of pay-to-play with special interests. Trump does not have to budge, he does not have to compromise.
President Donald Trump is the representative of the American people. And if you think the American people want to back down on the Wall and cave in to folks like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, then you are wrong. The American people want to fight. And so we fight vicariously through our representative, President Donald J. Trump.
Democrats are literally running from the Truth.
Mark McCloskey Sets the Record Straight, Identifies as Republican, Calls Black Lives Matter “Terrorist Organization”
He’s not a Democrat. And he definitely doesn’t support Black Lives Matter.
The Saint Louis man who confronted trespassing rioters agitating outside of his house spoke with Daily Wire host Michael Knowles on Wednesday, setting the record straight on two reports about himself that have recently circulated. Mark McCloskey and his wife confronted a mob of Black Lives Matter rioters who had broken through the gate of the private community in which he lives while armed, becoming the target of ire from left-wing activists and the city’s Soros-funded Democratic prosecutor.
McCloskey wanted to set the record straight on two important issues, rebuking reports that had surfaced in mainstream media claiming both that he was a Democrat, and that he actually supported the Black Lives Matter movement.
“I want to set the record straight on one thing. I’ve been reading a lot of reports about me from the media… Some of whom have accused me of being a Democrat, and I have donated money to various candidates, particularly ones who were personal friends of mine over the years, but I’ve been a lifelong Republican.”
McCloskey spoke of the Black Lives Matter in no uncertain terms, describing the group as a Marxist organization and a terrorist group that he in no way supports.
“Another thing I’d like to clear up is that the media reports me as being a supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement and I am certainly not. Black Lives Matter to my understanding is a Marxist organization opposed to everything I stand for and everything I hold near and dear. I do stand for equal justice under the law, but that’s got nothing to do with this terrorist organization known as Black Lives Matter.”
A press release originating from the McCloskey’s lawyers had made it seem as if the couple were actually Democrats who supported the movement. It appears likely that the couple’s lawyers took considerable liberties in painting the couple as such, considering McCloskey most definitely doesn’t appear to be a fan of the street riot movement.
McCloskey also recounted his experiences preparing for a second round of mob protests outside of his house, for which he hired a team of private security for after progressive activists organized a harassment campaign targeting him and his wife.
