President Donald Trump’s White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and Vice President Mike Pence reportedly said Saturday that Democrats led by Nancy Pelosi are blocking a bill to provide pay for the Coast Guard.
Lack of pay for the Coast Guard — which does not exist under the Department of Defense, which is funded — is a Democrat talking point in their failed efforts to end the government shutdown. Pelosi is refusing to consider President Trump’s latest compromise offer, which would provide amnesty for DACA recipients in exchange for a border Wall.
The White House’s assertion rings true, if history is any indicator.
Concerned about U.S. Coast Guard forces losing a paycheck in the partial government shutdown, President Trump personally urged his team to find a solution that would allow the administration to make this week’s $75 million payroll, according to officials.
Trump stepped in on Wednesday, calling on top lawyers and staffers to determine if the Coast Guard could make payroll despite being included in the shutdown that has impacted about 25 percent of the government, including the Department of Homeland Security, which houses the Coast Guard.
Texas National Guard will be Deploying on Election Day
Democrats are Shaking in Their Boots
On October 26, 2020, the Texas National Guard announced that Governor Abbott is deploying 1,000 members to five of the state’s largest cities to potentially quell unrest on Election Day or the days that follow.
Texas Democrats are uneasy about this announcement, according to a Fox News report.
According to the San Antonio Express-News, the cities where troops will be sent to are Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio.
The very fact that troops might be deployed to polling locations has Texas Democrats frightened about the prospect of voter suppression and intimidation. Although the state has been solidly Republican in the last 30 years, Texas is starting to become more competitive. Some experts believe it could flip to the Democrats in 2020 or at the very least, in the near future.
The Texas National Guard commander’s chief of staff informed the San Antonio Express-News that the guard deployment would only be activated to “deter any civil disturbance at sites in various cities within Texas.”
The protection of polling stations “has not been on any mission request or in any conversation with the governor’s office,” Major General James K. “Red” Brown declared. Although troops could be sent to guard buildings , being stationed at polling locations “has not been requested,” Texas Guard spokesman stated.
On the night of October 26, other military officials informed KXAN-TV that there were no plans to send military units to polling locations.
Adjutant General Major General Tracy Norris declared in a statement that the Texas Military Department “was activated to provide additional support to the Department of Public Safety in the summer of 2020.”
“Texas Service Members continue to support DPS in this capacity, guarding historical landmarks such as the Alamo and the State Capitol,” Norris remarked. “To be clear, there has been no request nor any plan to provide any type of support at any polling location in Texas.”
The San Antonio Express-News also confirmed that Norris was requested to set up contingency plans in case of any unrest that emerges.
The initial reports about Abbott’s order received more concerns in progressive bastions such as Austin.
“We’re not hearing any real indications to anticipate any disruptions or intimidation,” said Adler.
Austin City Council member Gregorio Casar blamed Abbott for “fear-mongering.”

2020 elections will be very heated and it’s prudent for Abbott to use military assets to protect Texans from potential insurrectionist behavior from the radical Left.
