An article on TheHill.com caught my interest recently. You can see why with the title alone: “Liberal unrest threatens Dem immigration strategy.”
You don’t typically see Democrats opposing Democrats, or at least being divided on an issue. Even when they run for their Party’s nomination, they tend to agree on nearly everything, with the only disagreement being on how intensely they should pursue something. So to see an article that says there are people on the Left that don’t agree with Democrats is quite strange and interesting.
You might remember that, recently, Nancy Pelosi was heckled by “immigrants’ rights activists” who want Democrats to pass a “clean” Dream Act while also protecting the other 10 million illegals living in the country.
They heckled her and called her a liar when she said she was on their side (which she is) and believed she was betraying them by cutting a deal with Trump, chanting “all of us or none of us!” Gee, you’re really making this a tough decision, huh?
Those hecklers truly didn’t know that Nancy Pelosi is on their side and wants what they want. Trust me, she wishes Democrats didn’t have to try to negotiate with Trump. But here's the interesting part...
According to The Hill: “Some activists have been brought into the Democratic Party umbrella and agree with the need for negotiation… Others fear a deal between Trump and top Democrats would spare Dreamers while ‘kicking ICE into overdrive’ in persecution of other undocumented immigrants. Among that second group are activists who would rather accept new border-wall construction – a non-starter for the Democrats – than funding that could be used to hire more (ICE) agents.”
So it’s clear that there are two groups of immigrant activists: those who want Democrats to make a deal with Trump that would protect Dreamers and those who would rather ACCEPT BUILDING THE WALL than risk ICE hunting them down and deporting them.
“’A wall isn’t ICE, a wall doesn’t walk into your home and drag you out by your *expletive* hair’”, according the The Hill.
Man, I never thought I’d see immigrants be willing to give Trump the wall if it means that THEY get to stay here and not worry much about ICE. But here’s the strange part: while a Wall definitely takes a lot of money to fund, it likely won’t take away funding for ICE. Yes, ICE wouldn’t be heavily funded if a Wall is built, but it’s still a threat to illegals.
But I guess they have to deal with the cards they’ve been dealt. It’s either allow Trump to build a Wall and not have ICE super funded and super powerful to deport a whole lot of them or make a deal that just protects DACA recipients, doesn’t protect the rest and ICE gets funding that otherwise would’ve gone to the Wall.
I would feel sorry for them if they weren’t criminals. I would feel sorry for them if they weren’t looking to pay for their crimes one way or another.
But these kinds of things typically go ignored or unnoticed by the MSM. As did the overwhelming majority of support for Trump over Hillary, the media chooses to ignore the fact that there’s internal struggles within their own party and even their BASE!
However, that really shouldn’t come as such a big surprise. We all saw just how truly divided the Democrat base was in the primaries. Bernie Sanders was clearly better liked than Clinton, but the DNC never gave him or anyone else the chance to be the Democrat candidate for the 2016 election. And it’s clear that there were plenty of (registered) Democrats who wound up not voting at all because Hillary was so unlikable or simply because they were pissed that the DNC screwed Bernie over.
So there has been evidence of Democrats being divided, but they are not typically divided on ISSUES. While you see every single day that Republicans are worthless and are heavily divided on issues such as Obamacare and tax reform, Democrats tend to stick together. But, then again, all Democrats are Establishment (and the Establishment is communist), so they all know what way to vote.
But it’s entirely different to see people outside the Establishment divided on an issue, as opposed to a candidate. Sure, they will prefer one candidate over another, but they typically all agree on issues. They are typically either communists or dangerously misinformed. But here, you can see at least two sides within Democrats.
One side would rather try to strong-arm Trump (a tactic that simply won’t work) into protecting Dreamers and giving up on the Wall, and the other side would rather allow Trump to build the Wall, knowing that ICE won’t then be heavily funded to “mass deport” millions of illegals.
And it’s truly interesting to see this. Mostly because we’ve mostly been talking about Trump and HIS base and supporters and how THEY feel about a deal with the Democrats. But we have not payed attention to the Democrat base, largely because we thought they were all on the same page. I certainly didn’t expect Pelosi to get heckled by people that she agrees with and is on the same side with.
Heck, I even remember the time when Bernie Sanders was heckled at a campaign stop by Black Lives Matter people, even though he is on their side as well. So it’s clear that there is at least SOME division within the Democrat base.
And do you want to know what else is interesting? We (conservatives and Trump supporters) aren’t divided. The media will tell you that Trump’s base is leaving him and that we are divided amongst ourselves, but none of that is true. What they think is Trump’s base is the REPUBLICAN base. And, to an extent, they are right! Trump’s base is, largely, the Republican base… it’s just that Republicans no longer HAVE a base.
I wouldn’t call myself a Republican any more. I would call myself a Trumper. I don’t support the Republican Party, because they don’t support me. Trump, on the other hand, does support me and other Americans, and so, I support him. The Republicans no longer have a base. That base is now Trump’s base. But why do I say “to an extent”? Because I know and have seen plenty of former Democrats be in support of Trump.
Democrats who have formerly voted for Obama at least once and have decided to instead support Trump. Trump’s base is the Republican base + disillusioned Obama voters. Trump’s base is an AMERICAN base. Pro-America. While the Democrat base is largely anti-America and the Republican base is virtually non-existent.
And to see the Democrat base be divided at least to this current level is great. That’s merely one of the many reasons Trump won the election. And thankfully, we continue to see at least SOME level of division within the Democrat base.
We don’t tend to see evil and ignorance be divided, but when it happens, it’s great to see.

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.”
