The government shutdown lasted for about five weeks, with little appearing to have come out of it except for the media blaming Trump for it, as usual, and the Democrats actually being to blame for it (I’ll explain momentarily).
The Democrat Party, the fake news media and college students all come to the agreement that the President was responsible and the one to blame for the government shutdown.
However, that train of thought changes once people start to learn some information that is not shared by the fake news media.
CampusReform’s Cabot Phillips went to George Mason University to ask some of the students who they blame for the then-current government shutdown.
As I stated previously, and completely unsurprisingly, the students all unanimously agreed that Trump was to blame for the shutdown.
So Phillips followed up that question with a pretty interesting and important one.
After asking the students who they blamed for the shutdown, Phillips asked them whether or not Democrats should agree on a compromise if Trump were to offer added protection for Dreamers, $800 million in funding for humanitarian aid and a slew of new judges to get immigration cases moving along faster.
Every single student that said they blamed Trump for the shutdown said that Democrats should compromise if Trump were to make that offer. Of course, that doesn’t matter at this point, but the kids thought they should’ve taken such a compromise.
What they didn’t know is that Trump actually DID make that offer earlier last week.
Suffice to say that the students were pretty surprised at that revelation.
One of the girls Cabot interviewed even went as far as to say she was “pleasantly surprised” that Trump offered that deal.
When asked if the Democrats should’ve taken Trump’s offer, all of them agreed that they should have, with one of them saying it was “the wrong move” for Pelosi to turn it down.
Then, Phillips asked them what the students had to say to Pelosi regarding this. One of them told Pelosi: “Compromise, compromise, compromise.”
Another said: “Just get the Democrats to, you know, budge…”
One girl said that Pelosi should “have a more open mind”, which is outright hilarious to me, considering how often the Left touts themselves as being open-minded and tolerant of everyone who is different from them, which is a complete fallacy.
Again, this doesn’t really matter at this point, but it’s good to see these kids appearing far more reasonable than the Democrats… or maybe that’s a bad thing, actually. These kids are more reasonable than the people in Washington. May God help us all.
Joking aside, by the end of the video (below), one student summarized the reason for the shutdown pretty well: “It’s the Democrats not giving in to the Republicans. So they don’t want to fund the wall at all. That’s why the shutdown is currently happening.”
I don’t know if that kid knows this, but that’s actually a pretty great summary of the situation that really should open his and anyone else’s eyes.
The kid realized for that moment that the ONLY reason the government was shut down for this long is not because of Trump being some sort of crybaby asking for money for a racist wall, but because Democrats are so petty they will turn down a good deal just so Trump doesn’t get his wall.
This much is emphasized when the Senate decided not to vote on bills that would open the government and Senator Tim Kaine, who would’ve been Hillary’s Vice President had she won, was visibly celebrating the fact that the government would continue to be shutdown, at least until Trump and Congress reached a deal to reopen it for three weeks (and I fully expect it to close again and Trump will have to declare a national emergency because the Democrats don’t want to negotiate on border security, open government or not).
But the fact that Tim Kaine celebrated an effort to reopen the government being killed certainly is interesting. I thought the Democrats really wanted the government to reopen and help those poor federal workers to actually be paid.
But when it comes to putting your money where their mouth is (yes, I’m making a joke about them taking your tax money), they refused to vote or pass anything that would get the government opened again.
Aside from the Tim Kaine celebration, something else that won’t be on the news is the fact that last week, there were multiple votes regarding back-pay for the “suffering” federal workers in the House.
According to Rep. Lee Zeldin, one January 17th, only 6 Democrats joined every single House GOP member on a bill to pay federal workers. The bill failed 195-222. On January 23rd, there was another vote on a similar bill but only 10 Dems joined Republicans on it and the bill failed 200-215. And on the following day, yet another bill that would pay fed workers was voted on, with only 13 Democrats joining Republicans, leading the bill to fail 200-214.
Literally all Republicans wanted to help these “suffering” and furloughed federal workers to get payed and the Democrats killed every bill that would've helped them. And then, they had the audacity to turn towards a CNN camera (because they are apparently everywhere there is a major story, if Roger Stone is any indication) and say Republicans were keeping the government shut down and were causing 800,000 federal workers to suffer WHEN IT’S LITERALLY THE OPPOSITE CASE IN REALITY!?
But these college students answering Phillips’ first question, the one about who was to blame for the shutdown, in the manner that they did does not surprise me in the least bit. It is yet another case of the media being disingenuous about who was to blame for the shutdown.
Trump offered them a good deal (that is honestly better for them than for him) and they were so fixated (and still are) on not letting Trump have his wall that they refused his offer. Nothing short of a promise of resignation as part of the deal would make the Democrats happy and even then, I could very well be wrong.
And not simply because Democrats are incapable of feeling joy being the soulless machines that they are.
But the fact remains that, upon learning some things and being given some good information, people can find out the truth. That kid at the end, while he might’ve later gone on to continue blaming Trump, did come to the reasonable conclusion that the only reason the government was shut down, particularly for as long as it was, is because Democrats refused to compromise.
And if more people come to the same conclusion, that is bad for the Democrats. Like I said, pretty much every single student in that video urged the Democrats to take the deal and thought it was a mistake for Pelosi to not go through with it.
This is the necessity of informing the public. There are a lot of people who are either uninformed or misinformed about things. These kids were largely uninformed (can’t blame them since the media they consume won’t tell them what Trump is doing unless it involves Russia or trolling people on Twitter) before Phillips let them know that the reasonable hypothetical offer from Trump was an actual offer from him.
So there are two major things to take away from this article:
1) it is uniquely important to give people the information necessary for them to arrive to their own conclusions. Like I said, the student at the end actually summarized the reason for the shutdown pretty well. Phillips didn’t tell him that, but gave him the tools to let him come to that conclusion.
2) the Democrats and the media are disgusting liars. This much we’ve known for a very long time, but it’s always important to note particularly when Democrats shed crocodile tears regarding the unpaid workers and proceed to kill any bill that would actually get them paid just so they can continue their sorrowful narrative.
There is a meme out there on the internet of this guy shooting someone on a couch, turning around and asking “why would someone do this?” as though he was not the reason for it (pretty great example right below).
This tends to be the case with pretty much everything they do, to be honest. You could literally replace the guy with AOC, have the victim as New Yorkers living in poverty and have the text say: “why would billionaires do this?”
There are a number of situations that would perfectly describe what the Left does with this meme, but getting back on track, this meme also shows what they were doing regarding the shutdown/federal workers not being paid.
They killed bills that would reopen the government or at least allow for federal workers to be paid, turn around and blame Trump and Republicans for the shutdown and workers not being paid.
It is the epitome of hypocrisy and outright deception. And if the CampusReform video is any indication, it’s working for a lot of people.
Those kids had NO idea that Trump offered a compromise to the Democrats who went on to reject it. This lack of information, or the outright consumption of misinformation, is the only reason Democrats are even capable of winning any election or even being relevant.
If everyone knew the truth about them, they’d know the Democrats were the ones who fought to keep their supposed “right” to own slaves, were split on the Civil Rights Act of 1964, founded the KKK and did not allow for a black person to attend a Democratic National Convention until the mid-1920s, their first official Democrat President, Andrew Jackson, went on to slaughter the Native Americans that they go on to claim were killed by simply white people, and they inspired Hitler’s Nuremberg Laws with their own segregation laws.
There is a TON more that I can point to as to why the Democrat Party is the worst party in world history, tied with any country’s communist party, but that would make this article as long as an entire series of volumes of books.
But what should largely be taken away from this article is the fact that it is imperative that we share the right kind of information. Of course, that’s nothing new, but it is always important to remember to do this.
The only reason Democrats are even close to being as prominent and powerful as they are is because they are workers of deceit just like Satan.
“For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naïve.”
