Democrat Shutdown Deliberately Places Foreign Interests above those of Americans

Democrat Shutdown Deliberately Places Foreign Interests above those of Americans
Just whose domestic Tranquility, common defence, general Welfare, and Blessings of Liberty did these guys have in mind…? [Scene at the Signing of the Constitution of the United States — Howard Chandler Christy/ United States Capitol]
The U.S. government is in its second day of a shutdown (as yet unresolved at this writing)* because Democrats in the Senate refuse to pass the appropriations budget (or a continuing resolution) unless President Donald Trump gives in to their demands to surrender on a so-called “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) “deal.” While the Daily News is reporting “Democrats said Sunday they’re now willing to accept President Trump’s controversial border wall in exchange for protecting young immigrants from deportation … Republicans are demanding that any deal include an end to chain migration and a visa lottery program.”

A “pathway to citizenship” for these illegal aliens  essentially guarantees that not just so-called “DREAMers,” but millions of foreign nationals, along with their “birthright citizenship” offspring, will culturally transform the Republic and do the same to the electorate. And the Democrat greedily want that because all credible polls – and the real world experience we can see for ourselves in places like California – demonstrate such populations favor their party and gun restrictions by an overwhelming  margin, which will give them control of the legislatures and the courts.

That said, the reaction of some “conservatives” to the government shutdown has been “Good!” After all, look how many powers the federal government has usurped that are nowhere authorized to it in the Constitution. Look at all the new “Intolerable Acts” enacted, enforced and upheld. Look at all the faceless bureaucrats imposing tyrannical regulations. The federal government “has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance” in a way George III could not have conceived in his wildest fit of madness.

That’s inarguable, and it points to a much larger problem with remedies that go far beyond the scope of what I’m arguing here. Regardless, it all goes back to following the Constitution and its delegated powers as enumerated by the Founders.

Besides, that’s not what the Democrats are doing.

Lawful powers were ordained and established – by the people – in order to actualize the purposes and objectives articulated in the Preamble:

“[T]o form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity…”

That’s the main reason for this government being in existence. That’s what “consent of the governed” was given to do and anything that does not advance that mission statement is, by simple logical consistency—illegitimate. What the Democrats (and any Quisling Republicans abetting them) are attempting to do is thwart the government’s ability to fulfill these obligations – to ourselves and our Posterity — and to instead advance the interests of foreign nationals (and their governments).

That makes the Democrats power-grab a calculated betrayal of our country through oath-breaking of the lowest order.

UPDATE:

Senate to vote Monday on plan to reopen government

The Senate will vote at noon Monday on a bill to reopen the government through Feb. 8, though passage is not assured. Senate leaders Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer are continuing to negotiate on a deal to reopen the government and begin legislative work on protecting some young immigrants, but Schumer said “we have yet to reach a path forward.”

UPDATE (1/22)

“Senate Democrats relinquished on the government shutdown Monday, agreeing to vote to reopen the government but insisting they’ll keep fighting for illegal immigrant ‘Dreamers’ over the next weeks, with another shutdown deadline looming Feb. 8.”

And they made it clear the goal is a “pathway to citizenship.”

  1. The sad part is the people who are supporting such foolishness. The so called citizens of the US who also put illegals in front of THEMSELVES. Sure, it’s a bad situation, but it will be dealt with in due time. But this route will only harden the hearts of the others and make it harder to settle in the long run.
    Shooting holes in the boat won’t get one to shore any quicker. Just the bottom.

  2. You are correct.This Country will end up in Debt just like California with no one to bail it out.The only way an Illegal Alien should gain citizenship is to marry an American Citizen a Guest Is A Guest my family came from Italy in 1911 and kept all their paperwork in order to become Citizens in 1955.It is not fair for American Citizens to pay taxes for Illegals who are driving thirty thousand dollar Trucks.The Migrant workers out side the seven eleven in the Eastern Long Island charge Twenty five dollars an hour for their labor Cash.The Americans get Ten Dollars an Hour as what is called fair minimum wage and pay taxes on that ten dollars an hour.

    1. Willing, ready and quite able…..it will hit the fan and it will come down to it…How can it possibly be avoided ? Bozo started it, remains behind it and is “all in” to see that it happens.

      1. They evil is desperate to retain their power, to the point we will have to personally step in to take them out. …for a boat ride.

  3. this is a bittersweet move. mayhaps, the left will see just what kind of garbage they r supporting. t AND WE LUCKY DOGS, HAVE TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT.

  4. NO DACA – Use the Nuclear Option to prevent the Democrats from holding us hostage to their plan to Invade our Country with more Illegals to win Seats with their votes (even though Illegals cannot vote legally) that doesn’t stand in their way. Pelosi, Reed & Hillary once said: “The End Justifies the Means, Even Though Innocents May be Hurt In The Process”. We already are supporting a Million or more Illegals, who live off Taxpayers’ money – at the expense of innocent Americans.

  5. I have been coming here since a friend in TX, suggested I GO TO ok’ers over NDAA 3012 I have listened,learned became both joyful and sad. Lately all we do is preach to the choir which get’s us know where. I would say unless some one comes up with something usable that most can agree on and execute, then just don’t say anything. I get angry too, but talking doesnt to anything in this infiltrated world except get you into needless trouble.

    1. Great point Charlie, and I share your concern. In the interest of your post, I’m going to give you two recent examples here in WA State. The Hirst Decision, which everyone in rural USA should be concerned with, and local school bond caps just announced in the newspaper yesterday.

      Hirst is a state court decision that found rural water wells that are connected/ recharges by rivers or watersheds, can be regulated by state and federal governments. They have been pushing for this for 40 years. Progressives never give up, they finally got their wish and it will be applied virtually everywhere in the western US.

      School bond caps will reduce the amount that local governments can tax to $1.50 per $1,000 property value. This is so the State can increase their taxation by at least that amount, and redistribute the monies as they see fit. I assure you that these monies will be concentrated to the city centers, thus nudging new parents to concentrate to the cities as well. Can we say Agenda 21 on steroids?

      The point is, did you know about these 2 governmental shifts? I didn’t and I am usually right on top of the environmental issues. Heck, the republicans in this state held the budget negotiations hostage over the Hirst decision just like the democrats federally. Ask yourself, did you not insinuate yourself because it was someone else’s job, or because you just didn’t know about it. I think you will find that talking about it is where we are right now. There are people trying to change things.

      That fellow in California is trying to create New California, which is interesting because I thought the same thing about Washington some 2 years back. Just like him I sought out the solution in the Constitution which provides for just a move. After having my butt handed to myself on the State Tea Party gig, I’m two times shy. Maybe it’s time to get back in the game, maybe it’s your turn, who knows? My sense is that we have missed all the exits to Constitutional Avenue, except 1. In my opinion it’s time to Redeclare our Independence and get the small businesses to quit paying taxes for corrupt government. Point is, it will take some crazy visionary to make it happen and persuade enough people from both sides of the aisle. Is it you, is it me? If not then who? Keep your eyes open my friend, people are giving you Intel through their complaints.

      1. The unholy rogue State of Washington, like other states of evilness, has politicized the water usage as a tool to generate and suck money for the gestapo department of ecology.

  6. This endless back and f orth is nothing more than political theater and benefits only the political elites in Washington and punishes the American people! If the republicans have any real desire to serve the American people they need to STOP GIVING IN TO DEMOCRATS ON LIBERAL ISSUES THAT WE ALL KNOW ARE POISION FOR AMERICA! If the republicans can find common ground on ISSUES they should but ISSUES that so clearly endanger AMERICA should NEVER BE ALLOWED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES !!!
