President Donald Trump delivered his first Oval Office address this past Tuesday. It was nothing short of great and to the point.
The President made sure to immediately call the issue at the border not simply an issue of security, but also a “humanitarian crisis, a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul.”
“Every day, Customs and Border Patrol agents encounter thousands of illegal immigrants trying to enter our country. We are out of space to hold them and we have no way to promptly return them back home to their country. America proudly welcomes millions of lawful immigrants who enrich our society and contribute to our nation. But all Americans are hurt by uncontrolled illegal migration. It strains public resources and drives down jobs and wages. Among those hardest hit are African Americans and Hispanic Americans.”
The President made sure to note the horrible things that come as a result of illegal immigration, including the trafficking of illegal and deadly drugs, and the unfettered crime that only rises as a result of poor border security.
“In the last two years, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes and 4,000 violent killings. Over the years, thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country and thousands more lives will be lost if we don’t act right now.”
He also noted some of the particular killings, such as the killing of a legal immigrant police officer in California at the hands of an illegal immigrant who is protected by the state’s ridiculous sanctuary state policies.
He also made sure to point out how children are used as pawns at best by criminal illegal aliens seeking to enter the country (and MS-13 gang members often pose as children to enter the country), as well as pointing out the regularity of women being sexually assaulted and raped on the trek to enter the country (which “fact-checkers” at CBS made sure to actually show increased numbers of women who are raped on the way to the border, further helping Trump’s case, before they realized they were helping Trump and got rid of that).
“My administration has presented Congress with a detailed proposal to secure the border and stop the criminal gangs, drug smugglers, and human traffickers. It’s a tremendous problem.”
Beyond that, he also made sure to call out the Democrats on their inaction regarding the border, pointing out that many of them previously supported stronger border security until Trump became President. He also called out how Pelosi said the wall was “immoral” and yet she, alongside many other Democrats, have walls built around their homes. And he says the reason they build walls around their homes is not because “they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside.”
He makes sure to point out the horrible deeds of illegal aliens including multiple horrific and grotesque murders in California, Georgia and Maryland. And he makes sure to point out that the families of the victims (some of whom Trump has personally met with) have suffered as a result. “I will never forget the pain in their eyes, the tremble in their voices and the sadness gripping their souls. How much more American blood must we shed before Congress does its job?”
He finishes very strong by saying: “This is a choice between right and wrong; justice and injustice. This is about whether we fulfill our sacred duty to the American citizens we serve…”
Overall, he gave a very emotional and fantastic speech.
On the other hand, we have the Democrats, who had Sen. Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi give their rebuttal to the President’s speech.
And that was simply a nightmare for the Left.
Chuck and Nancy did not look like people trying to reach people emotionally. They looked robotic and like they were better than everyone else. They were stiff and unemotional like they were replaced by aliens who are first learning how to interact with humans.
Their speech wasn’t emotional. It was dull and boring and filled with falsehoods. The entire internet mocked the two largely for how they looked, with some making American Gothic references (the painting of the farmer man holding a pitchfork next to his wife completely devoid of emotion) and others making jokes about how they look like disappointed parents scolding their child.
In their speech, they talked about how a wall is ineffective (which is not true) and largely talked about Trump, not the American people. Beyond that, they even tried to deny the reality of a crisis altogether.
Their rebuttal was so bad that even MSNBC’s Brian Williams and Democrat operative James Carville made fun of them, with Carville saying: “I’ve been more excited about colonoscopies than [Schumer] was giving the speech tonight.”
Even people whose entire careers have depended on spinning stories cannot spin this one. It was plain bad for the Democrats.
But taking these two things together, one thing is very clear: Democrats don’t care about illegal immigration, Americans who have suffered as a result of it either through being brutally assaulted, killed, or exploited in any way through the use of drugs, and don’t care about the families of the victims. They only care about scoring political points against Trump, castigating him and attacking him, and putting a priority on the criminal illegal aliens than on the American people.
By stark contrast, Trump looked very emotional in his speech and looked like he really cares for the people who are/were victimized by this crisis, going as far as to call it a humanitarian one.
I’ve held this belief for a very long time, but Tuesday only reinforced it: Trump cares about Americans and Democrats care about their own power. Democrats don’t care who suffers and who is killed and maligned so long as the people who freely enter the country end up defrauding America by illegally voting for Democrats, who are all too happy to accommodate for voter fraud.
Trump gave an emotional and great speech, and the Democrats looked heartless.
And it’s not just the Democrats that looked bad either. “Fact-checkers” like WaPo tried to correct a large number of the facts Trump gave, but either ended up lying themselves or not actually making the case that Trump was being misleading, which is something they repeatedly tried to say but could not actually prove.
Overall, Trump had a great night where I think he successfully reached a good number of people. Of course, I imagine most people who watched his speech were his supporters, considering people like Hollywood celebrities were still trying to say Trump was being racist (even though there was nothing even remotely racist that he said during the speech that anyone could even allude to being racist), but for those who watched it with an open mind, I think can easily be reached.
Trump’s message was heartfelt and sincere. He truly wants to help end this crisis, secure our border, and protect Americans. Schumer and Pelosi’s message was heartless, full of misinformation, and like they couldn’t care less about the people whose lives are severely altered by people who have no right to be here.
For as much as the Left wants to pretend Trump’s message was full of hate and malice, the opposite is very clearly true. And the Democrats are the ones who had more of a message of hate and malice, if nothing else.
“But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

I tend to enjoy it when disliked and idiotic Democrats hold speeches for the public to hear. Why? Because often enough, the more they speak, the worse they come off. The more they speak, the more likely they are to say something stupid. The more they speak, the more I can have my fun with them.
And with Nancy Pelosi speaking for 8 hours on the House floor trying to defend “Dreamers” and other illegals, I can’t help but to smile at the gift she’s bestowed Republican candidates running for Congress this Fall.
I obviously won’t get into too much detail about her speech. There’s no way I could cover 8 hours of idiocy without going insane, much less without going over my personal word limit for these articles. But her theme is easy to recognize. She was defending illegals and even THANKING them for coming here illegally and having children here.
At the House floor, according to the Daily Wire: “Pelosi vowed to stand and speak until Republicans gave in to her demands to protect illegal aliens who were brought to the United States by their parents as minors. However, Pelosi’s speech appears to have deepened the fracture in the Democratic Party over the issue of immigration.”
Now, it’s one thing for the Daily Wire to be saying this. But it’s an entirely different thing for DEMOCRATS to be saying something similar.
The Daily Wire writes: “Politico interviewed almost a dozen House Democrats, several of whom only spoke on the condition of anonimity… Many agreed that she was trying to ‘shore up support within the progressive base’ who feel Democrats have failed to do enough to protect Dreamers. ‘By agreeing to the spending caps deal, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and others argued, Democrats gave up all their leverage to force Republicans into serious negotiations to shield Dreamers from deportation.’”
“Some centrist-minded Democrats said Pelosi’s daylong protest could – by calling attention to the failure to provide relief for Dreamers – make it that much harder for vulnerable members to vote for the budget deal… ‘This stunt… had nothing to do with protecting vulnerable members who have to take a difficult vote… Working out this deal and then saying she’s not going to vote for it? Come on. She was at the table…’”
“All House Democrats are supportive of Dreamers. But several members, particularly centrists, are wary of using the immigration issue as a campaign cudgel, worried it could derail Democrats’ chances of taking back the House,” writes Politico.
And another House Democrat told Bloomberg: “Many of our members are furious. We have spent the last three weeks insisting that we don’t want to shut the government down over DACA, and she essentially made the whole thing about it. Virtually everyone trying to win seats outside of California feels she has hurt their chances.”
And that is the most shocking statement to come from this whole ordeal. How often will you hear any Democrat admitting that the actions or words of a fellow Democrat will hurt their chances in the next election?
How often will you hear that the “unstoppable blue wave” might actually have taken damage? Everyone in the media foolishly believes the 2018 midterms will surely go to the Democrats. Everyone on the Left believes this b.s. Just as they thought Hillary would trounce Trump in 2016.
In recent time, we’ve seen more infighting within the Democrat Party than within the GOP. That’s not to say that there hasn’t been any infighting within the GOP. There, of course, has been. But here we see House Democrats “furious”, as one notes, with their MINORITY LEADER! Usually, they focus their anger (of which there is a never ending supply because they’re Democrats and they are never happy for long) on Trump and Republicans. And to see them direct their anger towards one of their more notorious members is astonishing.
And the funny thing is that Chuck Schumer isn’t faring much better. At a recent anti-Trump rally in D.C., Leftist, Islamic nutcase Linda Sarsour attacked Schumer, saying: “I’m tired of white men negotiating on the backs of people of color and communities like ours. We are not bargaining chips. This is not a poker game.”
This coming from the whitest Muslim I’ve ever seen. Granted, her parents are Palestinian immigrants, so she certainly has that sort of background, but I find it funny that she considers herself a “person of color”. When your skin color is as light in tone as your teeth, you’re not really a person of color.
Heck, I’m a native-born Argentinian immigrant (and proud American citizen, mind you) and I’m rather pasty myself. I’m Hispanic but don’t consider myself a person of color. Why? Because I couldn’t care less what my skin color is. I don’t spend enough time thinking about people’s skin color to really care.
Regardless, that’s not the point of bringing that up. The point is that a Leftist went after another notorious Democrat in Chuck Schumer.
And this is coming after “Dreamer” protesters sat outside his house being angry at him. More evidence of infighting, if you will.
Of course, those “Dreamers” had no right to protest as they are not here legally. Only those here legally can enjoy the rights given to us by the Constitution. The right to assembly outside of Schumer’s house was not theirs. Not that it matters at this point.
But returning to Nancy, you really gotta love the things she says and does on occasion. I’ve already ridiculed her when she said the tax cuts would be actual Armageddon, but even Trump made some fun of her (before the 8-hour speech happened) when he spoke at a factory in Ohio.
Speaking about the bonus money people are getting thanks to the tax cuts, he said: “Nancy Pelosi again said that’s ‘crumbs’. Well, she’s a rich woman who lives in a big, beautiful house in California who wants to give all of your money away… She’s our secret weapon. I just hope they [Democrats] don’t change her…”
It’s not a good look for a Democrat to inadvertently be helping out Republicans in this manner. If even TRUMP is saying she’s the Republicans’ secret weapon, that can only mean she’s royally screwing the Democrats over.
And I agree with Trump. I do hope the Democrats don’t replace her. Just as I don’t want Hillary to go away any time soon, I don’t want Pelosi and Chuck to go any time soon. They are all ghosts haunting the Democrat Party. And the Democrats won’t make any progress towards defeating Trump if they don’t get rid of the Establishment within their own Party.
Even the Democrats have to drain their own swamp.

You might be wondering what exactly it is that I mean by “less than nothing.” After all, you can’t have less than nothing. Zero is nothing and there’s nothing less than that… well, except negative numbers. And that’s precisely what the Democrat Party has earned with this shutdown.
After roughly 3 days, the Democrat Party caved in their efforts to force a DACA deal with no border wall. The Democrats and Mitch McConnell came to an agreement to sign basically the exact same bill that was up for debate before the shutdown began. And that’s where I say that Democrats gained nothing. But how did they gain less than nothing? Well, this shutdown has the potential to be a liability for Democrats in the mid-term elections.
Last week, I mentioned how all Republicans need to do to win in 2018 would be to bring up the booming economy and how the Democrats voted AGAINST it. Now, they have another arrow in their quiver: the Democrats’ horrible priorities.
During this shutdown, Democrats sided with illegals over American citizens who need the government to survive. Those who rely on welfare and social security checks were in danger of not getting the money they need to simply SURVIVE and those in the military, who are already paid dreadfully little, were in danger of not getting paid as well. That’s why Trump mentioned the military when talking about the shutdown.
The Democrats prioritized illegals over American citizens who need the government funded. I even personally tweeted at Sen. Chuck Schumer that this would guarantee Republicans win in 2018. While that may be a bit far-fetched since we’re roughly 10 months away from November, my message is clear: this shutdown will only serve to HURT Democrats in the future.
Like I said, this adds another arrow to the Republicans’ quiver. All they have to do is remind local voters that Democrats prioritized illegal immigrants over American citizens. That Democrats would rather fight for those who shouldn’t even be here over those who are in need of government assistance. If the Democrat Party wants to be the blue-collar party, this is a horrible way to achieve that.
It’s not just that people were affected by this shutdown for as long as it lasted (which wasn’t much). It’s also that Democrats can easily be called out as hypocrites over this.
While Obama was President and Republicans threatened shutdowns, the Democrats would always scream out that people would DIE if the government shuts down.
Back during the 2013 shutdown, Chuck Schumer said this to Jake Tapper: “It was not a hard line on the substantive issues. It was a hard line saying, unless I get my way I’m going to shut the government down, I’m going to risk default for the nation. Now anyone can do that… I believe in immigration reform. What if I persuaded my caucus to say I’m going to shut the government down, I’m going to not pay our bills unless I get my way? It’s a politics of idiocy, of confrontation, of paralysis.”
Well, look who’s wearing the dunce hat now. By his own definition, what he was doing was simply idiotic, confrontational and paralyzing. But the funny thing is that the Left, rather poorly, tried to blame this shutdown on Trump by using the hashtag “#TrumpShutdown” on Twitter. While there are those who are of low information who believed it (I follow some of those people on Twitter and have a fun time engaging them on these things), most people were quick to see the b.s.
Even the New York Times wrote an article titled: “Senate Democrats Block Bill to Keep Government Open Past Midnight; Shutdown Looms.” Of course, I went to look in the Times’ website and couldn’t find it, but rather found another article published on the same day titled: “Government Shuts Down as Bill to Extend Funding is Blocked; Senate Adjourns for the Night.”
Granted, this was a story being updated, so it makes sense that they would change their headline from “shutdown looms” to “government shuts down.” But before the update, they actually managed to say something truthful: this shutdown was the sole fault of the Democrats.
This goes to show just how unorganized the Left was on this if even the MSM blamed the shutdown (temporarily) on Democrats.
And according to the Daily Wire: “The Democrats’ plan was, apparently, to force Republicans to extend benefits for DACA recipients as part of a long-term funding bill. But when President Trump refused the ‘compromise immigration plan’ drafted by Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer and his colleagues – largely over a provision that granted temporary amnesty to DACA parents – the plan seemed to break down. Even typically left-leaning media chastised the Democrats for their misstep, and suggested that only Democrats would suffer from negative public opinion surrounding the government shutdown.”
Thankfully, we now have a president that won’t simply cave to the Democrats and this eventually forced Schumer to cave, realizing that this was a mistake (not that he will ever admit that, but he’s gotta be thinking this shutdown served no good purpose for them).
So in reality, this shutdown and its resolution shows us three things about Democrats: 1) They will prioritize millions of people who shouldn’t even be here over American citizens 2) the Democrats are hilariously hypocritical and 3) the Democrats appear to be very weak at the moment.
Even House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was against Schumer on this, as were progressive activists.
When you gain absolutely nothing and stand to lose future elections due to your mistakes, you appear to be rather weak. Schumer and the Democrats caved. That’s a sentence I’m joyfully happy to write and incredulous over the fact that I’m actually writing it.
It’s clear that Democrats will prefer to fight for those who shouldn’t be here over those who are rightfully here. It’s clear that Democrats are hypocrites about everything they talk about (not something new, but important to point out nonetheless). And it’s clear that Democrats are rather weak at the moment. That was clear the day Hillary lost the election, but now, it’s also clear to those within the Democrat base as well.
This is a bad defeat for the Left and this could spell trouble for them in the coming elections should Republican candidates use this to their advantage.

On Thursday, September 14th, the social media world exploded when reports came in (through the MSM) that Trump, Schumer and Pelosi reached a deal that would protect “Dreamers” and exclude the building of a wall.
Schumer and Pelosi, after their dinner with the president, released the following statement: “[We] agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides.”
If you read this alone, you’d think Trump caved on the Wall. But you have to remember exactly who is giving this statement. The Left will always lie when it benefits them. They’ve been trying to separate Trump from his supporters, and saying that Trump caved on the Wall is an attempt at doing just that.
And it worked for a bit. I saw plenty of conservatives be enraged at Trump on social media, when only one side (the b.s. liberal side) was given. On Thursday morning, Trump tweeted out: “No deal was made last night on DACA”. Trump also said, later in the day, that the three came “fairly close” to reaching a deal that would require “massive border security”.
Then, while traveling to Florida to assess the damage of Hurricane Irma and helping the victims, the President said: “Ultimately, we have to have the wall. If we don’t have the wall, we’re doing nothing.” He said that having the wall was “vital” and even called out Republicans who would “become the obstructionists” if the wall weren’t to be funded.
Now, I don’t know about you, but if the last couple of years is anything to go by, I’d trust what Trump says over what the MSM or Schumer and Pelosi said happened. If we don’t trust them when they say that Russia hacked the election or that Climate Change is happening and it’s our fault, why would we trust them when they say they’ve made a deal with the president? Particularly when he says that no deal was made in the end?
I’ve seen plenty of people on social media explode, saying they want the Wall and that we NEED the Wall. And I agree, but you have to realize that Trump never took the Wall off the table. He said no deal was made, so why trust the Left over him on this particular issue?
And Trump isn’t the only one to push back on what the Democrat leaders said. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted: “While DACA and border security were both discussed, excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to.”
Like Trump, I’d trust HER more than any other news source on things the President does.
Now, Trump HAS softened his views on the Dreamer issue. Tweeting: “Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!” Another tweet read: “They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own – brought in by parents at young age.”
This garnered one particular “Trump supporter” to attack the president. Ann Coulter tweeted: “’Put a fork in Trump, he’s dead’” and “At this point, who DOESN’T want Trump impeached?” Really? He softens his position on this one issue and you’re ready to put him in the guillotine? Ready to impeach him? Now, I won’t react too much towards Coulter’s tweets, since this isn’t the first time she’s thrown a tantrum over Trump doing something she didn’t like. She’s not a supporter, she’s simply trying to get attention and clicks to her page. That’s it.
The problem with that is that you come across as not being able to choose a side. You’re either FOR the President, therefore with conservatives, or AGAINST him and therefore with the Left. Megyn Kelly was against Trump and alienated her conservative audience. The Left never liked her. Conservatives no longer like her, so now her only audience is Never Trump traitors over at NBC, where her ratings are about what you’d expect when not a lot of people like you.
So it makes no sense to want to throw out Trump over THIS. He’s not saying he’s giving the Dreamers citizenship so they can vote for Democrats. He’s not giving up the Wall. In fact, he’s literally said he’s STILL going for the Wall. And he’s not going to sell out the country.
He will, however, try to get things to happen. Republicans are among the worst kind of scum on the Earth and won’t help Trump with anything. Democrats are willing to work with Trump if they get a little something in return. They’ve already done this with the debt ceiling, which wound up not meaning too much while also helping those affected by Hurricane Harvey with the “Hurricane Harvey Relief” part of the deal.
With the DACA issue, he’s willing to soften his position, but these people are somewhat different from other illegals. These DACA people were brought into the country through illegal means. But that’s at least a little bit more understandable than someone crossing the border on his own. It’s easy to know what we want with illegals that cross the border and exploit the country’s system. It’s a little bit more difficult knowing what you want when this involves people who were BROUGHT into our country and don’t know anything else outside of it. And it’s not exactly fair or even humane to flat out kick them out when they are not the ones at fault.
Now, there are different kinds of DACA children. Some of them were shipped by their parents from a foreign country. And some simply came here with their parents.
So, you have to take different measures with the different circumstances. Here’s what I propose:
First, the children shipped by their parents. I can understand parents wanting what’s best for their children, but a 6 or 7 year old is simply not going to do much better in this country without his/her parents. Could you imagine being that young, being in a foreign land where you don’t know the language, don’t know where to go and don’t know what to do, forced to live with a relative you barely know? It’s a horrible nightmare. So those children should be shipped back to their parents, because it’s better to be with people who love you somewhere not as good as the U.S. than being on your own, scared out of your mind in the best country in the world. At least at that age.
Children aren’t like adults. Adults will be better able to get by in a foreign country than a child would. So, they go back to their parents.
Finally, those who came here with their parents illegally. Well, this one’s the easiest. Send them all back. Each of them is breaking the law, and the child’s parents are teaching him/her that it’s OK to break the law on occasion. No child should be taught to break the law unless it’s a law that goes against God or the Bible. But border laws don’t go against God or the Bible. It’s not good for children to be taught that they can break the law if they will benefit from doing so.
But to return to the whole “Trump caved” issue, let’s not overreact. And let’s certainly not pay attention to what the Left says when Trump himself hasn’t given his side of the argument. We’ve never trusted the Left on anything else, why would we do it this time?
“For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.”
