Is it possible that Trump's corruption is the shining beacon?

I believe you that corruption is rampant!

On both sides.

Shutdown continues

US President Donald Trump has refused to budge over his demand for billions of dollars to build a wall along the border with Mexico, with Democratic congressional leaders likewise holding firm on their refusal to fund the scheme, sending a partial US government shutdown into its 12th day.

Key points:

  • The shutdown has left hundreds of thousands of government employees unpaid
  • The Trump administration has rejected a Democratic proposal to end the shutdown
  • Mr Trump said the shutdown will continue "for as long as it takes" to secure border wall funding

After meeting today in the high-security Situation Room at the White House, the President and Republican and Democratic representatives will on Friday (local time) again come together in an attempt to find a solution to the stalemate.

The President made his case for wall funding anew ahead of the session with Democratic and Republican leaders, pointing to migrants arriving at the border in recent days, but indicated he was in no rush for a resolution to the impasse.

He said the border was "like a sieve" and referred to US officials recently firing tear gas at those trying to cross to the US.

He described border officials as "very tough" at keeping immigrants out.

"If they knew they couldn't come through, they wouldn't even start," Mr Trump said at a meeting joined by Cabinet secretaries and top advisers.

The Cabinet meeting was the President's first public appearance of the new year as the shutdown dragged into its second week, leaving hundreds of thousands of federal employees without pay.

So far, the administration has rejected a proposal from Democrats to re-open government services without money to build a wall along the US-Mexico border.

The President "wants an agreement that reopens the government AND keeps Americans safe," the White House said on Twitter.

Mr Trump contended the Democrats see the shutdown fight as "an election point" as he celebrated his own first two years in office. He promised "six more years of great success".

Democrats set to take control of House

The briefing with congressional leaders took place one day before Democrats will assume control of the House and end the Republican monopoly on the Government.

Democrats said they asked Mr Trump directly during the private meeting why he would not consider their package of bills aimed at ending the shutdown.

"I said, 'Mr President, give me one good reason why you should continue your shutdown'," Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer said afterward.

"He could not give a good answer."

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, who is expected to become Speaker on Thursday (local time), said Democrats would take action to "end the Trump Shutdown" by immediately passing legislation to reopen government.

"We are giving the Republicans the opportunity to take yes for an answer," she wrote in a letter to colleagues.

"Senate Republicans have already supported this legislation, and if they reject it now, they will be fully complicit in chaos and destruction of the President's third shutdown of his term."

Mr Trump's aides suggested there would not necessarily be a traditional wall as he has repeatedly insisted since his presidential campaign, but he contradicted them.

On Tuesday morning, Mr Trump tweeted: "The Democrats, much as I suspected, have allocated no money for a new Wall. So imaginative! The problem is, without a Wall there can be no real Border Security."

Trump vows shutdown will continue 'as long as it takes'

The Republican-led Senate will not consider Democratic funding bills that do not include Mr Trump's demand for $5 billion for a border wall, US Senate leader Mitch McConnell said.

"The Senate will not waste its time considering a Democratic bill which cannot pass this chamber and which the President will not sign," Mr McConnell said on the Senate floor.

Even if only symbolic, the passage of the bills in the House would put fresh pressure on the President.

But Mr Trump said he would keep the government partially shut for "as long as it takes" to secure funding for the border wall.

Administration officials said he believed he had public opinion and his base on his side.

The Democratic package to end the shutdown would include one bill to temporarily fund the Department of Homeland Security at current levels — with $1.3 billion for border security, far less than the $5 billion Mr Trump has said he wants fo

True enough. The Ruling Establishment in America is so opposed to President Trump because he openly stands in opposition to them. This is also why freedom loving Americans stand with him despite all his personality, um, 'flaws.'

Do try to consider that reality is not what you read or hear from the usual suspects sources . . .

Say His Name: RIP Cpl. Ronil Singh

 

In the still of the last night of 2018, the silence of California Dems chilled the air and airwaves.

Border wall opponent Sen. Kamala Harris tweeted three times between Christmas and New Year's Eve bemoaning the plight of illegal immigrants and their children.

But not a peep was heard from Harris about the brutal shooting death of Newman, California, Police Department Cpl. Ronil Singh at the hands of a Mexican gang member illegally in the country and protected by the very sanctuary policies Harris champions.

Border wall opponent Rep. Nancy Pelosi decried the deaths of two illegal immigrant children on the same day Singh was murdered, bashed the government shutdown and, on New Year's Eve, promoted her upcoming MSNBC special.

But not a peep was heard from Pelosi about Singh, the suspected illegal immigrant murderer, or the arrests of a total of seven alleged accomplices — all reported to be illegally in this country as well.

Border wall opponent Sen. Dianne Feinstein released a public letter to the Customs and Border Patrol agency on the day of Singh's murder to voice her "strong concern about the recent deaths and illnesses of children detained in Border Patrol custody, and to request a full accounting and a revised protocol to prevent such tragedies from occurring in the future."

But not a peep was heard from Feinstein about Singh, no call for investigation of how the suspected murderer and his alleged accomplices arrived in the U.S., were able to evade arrest and detection, and who employed them, and aided, abetted, and sheltered them.

Neighbors, friends and co-workers turned out in full force for a candlelight vigil this week memorializing the dedicated, patriotic, compassionate, hard-working husband and father of a 5-month-old baby. But rabble-rousing liberal politicians, so quick to rush down to the border to exploit the migrant caravan crisis and sabotage President Donald Trump's efforts to keep America safe, were nowhere to be found.

How could any decent citizen not be moved by Reggie Singh, who broke down in tears while expressing thanks to local, state and federal officers upon the arrest of his hero brother's suspected murderer after an intense multiagency manhunt?

How could any public servant not be outraged by the revelations of Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson, who reported that Ronil Singh's suspected murderer from Mexico had worked illegally as a laborer, had known gang affiliations, and had two prior drunk driving arrests before the fatal traffic stop and attempted escape back to Mexico.

California's sanctuary laws, supported by every California Democrat and signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown, barred local authorities from reporting the alleged cop-killer for his prior criminal arrests to ICE.

The priorities couldn't be starker: Open borders Democratic hearts bleed for those bent on undermining our sovereignty, while they turn blind eyes to legal immigrants like Indo-American Singh, originally from Fiji, who honored our institutions and enforced our laws.

Newman Police Chief Randy Richardson paid tribute to his friend and employee: "This is a man that loved his country. This is a man that worked hard for what he believed in. He believed in this community."

Singh was the true story of the American dream, brought down by the ongoing open borders nightmare. He cherished his family roots and heritage, but embraced the privileges and responsibilities of legally obtained citizenship as a fully assimilated American. And this is precisely why California Democrats won't say his name, acknowledge his sacrifice or investigate the policy failures that led to his death.

The silent Dems have spent 30 years obliterating the difference between legal and illegal immigration.
