Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who is currently House minority leader and, most likely, soon-to-be House speaker (D-CA), along with Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in the Senate, have been leading Congressional Democrats in a ‘RESISTANCE’ movement to deny every agenda item that President Trump puts forward. In fact, they have deemed his idea of securing the borders and building a wall racist. However, have the Democrats always believed that border security is racist? Have they always believed that the term ‘illegal alien’ is a racist term? Have they always believed that America should have open borders? ACTUALLY NO! In fact, as recent as 2009, Senator Chuck Schumer resoundingly echoed the words of now, President Trump, in regards to immigration. In fact, the following is a piece that shows how eerily similar the words of Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and President Trump are, in regards to illegal immigration and border security.
Today, Democrats are decrying the President’s actions to secure the border as racist, hate-filled, vile, and xenophobic (intense or irrational dislike or fear of people from other countries). Ironically, just a few years ago the Democrat Party as a whole resoundingly echoed President Trump’s goals and initiatives and called it ‘reckless’ not to secure the American border…
Today, Democrats have made a complete reversal of policy for various reasons. First of all, as they have witnessed a backlash, due to their radically unpopular progressive, socialist and communist ideals, Democrats have begun to rely on the influx of pro-Socialist minded immigrants into the United States. After all, they have adopted the idea that if you can’t win over the minds of the voters, import new voters! Secondly, President Trump has proven to be a thorn in the side of the progressive-socialist and communist ideologues. Therefore, they assembled a communist style ‘resistance’ that is designed to antagonize, defy, and thwart ALL OF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN PROMISES AND PRESIDENTIAL INITIATIVES!
The Daily Caller reported:
The House passed a stopgap funding bill on Dec. 20 that included $5.7 billion to construct a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, however, with a 51-seat majority, Republicans fell short of the necessary 60 votes needed to send it to President Donald Trump’s desk for signature. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer vowed to kill the legislation on arrival in the Senate, and consequently, a government shutdown has been in effect since funding expired Dec. 21.
The Democratic leaders pledged not to appropriate a single dollar towards funding a wall, and Pelosi further promised to put forth a funding bill that does not include any of Trump’s demands when she assumes the speakership in January.
Yes, today a small segment of our federal government is ‘shut down’, not because the President refuses to negotiate, but because the Progressive-Socialist ‘Resistance’ has made defying not only some of the Presidents promises the sole agenda for their Party, but EVERY INITIATIVE IN HIS ADMINISTRATION!
Even more troubling for Democrats, is the fact that after the government shut down last Friday night, President Trump canceled his families Christmas vacation to his Mar-a-Lago resort to continue working for ‘We the People’! However, Congressional officials quickly adjourned and went home, while likely soon-to-be House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi left Washington to spend the Christmas holiday at a luxury resort in Hawaii.
Still, it didn’t stop Pelosi from slamming President Trump on Twitter during the Christmas holiday as she tweeted… claiming his holding out to get border funding is harming Americans. Apparently, it is not harming her vacation plans.
However, as she was tweeting and blaming the still working President, she sat in the lap of luxury, as only an Elitist would do.
The Washington Free Beacon reported that Pelosi spent the holiday at the Fairmont Orchid resort, where rooms cost between $899 per night for a standard room to $4,899 a night for the presidential suite. The Beacon revealed that…
the resort, on Hawaii’s Big Island, features a golf course, six restaurants, and a 10,000-square-foot oceanfront pool. It also features a “Spa Without Walls,” where the 110-minute Ali’i Royal Experience is available for $369 and a 50-minute couples massage runs $549, according to the spa menu. While at the spa, guests can snack on a gluten-free grilled prawn summer roll for $19.
This is not Pelosi’s first holiday vacation to Hawaii. In 2011, it was reported by the Hawaii Reporter that Pelosi had in previous years stayed in a $10,000-a-night suite at the Four Seasons Resort in Kona for her holiday vacation.
Now as the government shutdown approaches the eighth day, Democrats and their Mainstream Media propaganda machine continue to push the illusion that illegals are good, and ‘We the People’ are mean, nasty, racists, for demanding government do its primary purpose in securing the border and protecting the American people. They are pushing the fantasy that a border wall would be the worst possible and most inhumane thing in the world, despite the fact that many of the same Democrats who are making that claim, voted for the Secure Fence Act in 2006. In fact, Byron York of the Washington Examiner revealed that…
In 2006 Congress passed the Secure Fence Act, which mandated the construction of multilayer pedestrian fencing along about 600 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border. It passed with big, bipartisan majorities: 283 votes in the House and 80 in the Senate. Some top Democrats who are still in the Senate today supported the fence: Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, Ron Wyden, Debbie Stabenow, and Sherrod Brown.
Just the next year, Congress made clear it didn’t really mean what it said. The new law was amended to make fence building optional.
In 2013, Congress got back into the fence game. The Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform bill included something called the “Southern Border Fencing Strategy.” It called for 700 miles of at least single-layer pedestrian fencing along the border. It wasn’t a standalone measure; the fence was to be part of a broader package of border security measures alongside provisions that would create a process by which the nation’s 11 million illegal immigrants would ultimately gain a path to citizenship.
Therefore, many of those same Democrats are now adamantly opposing the border wall, because they claim it is inhumane! However instead, it is only because President Trump ran for office on the pledge to ‘build a wall’, and Democrats are becoming more desperate to find a new reservoir of voters, which they found in the pro-Socialist, pro-welfare state desperate illegals who are fleeing severe poverty throughout Central America. Meanwhile, the Mainstream Media backs up their claims, not because they are reporting factual news, but instead because they have become the communist propaganda wing of the Democrat Party in America.
In “The American Catholic”, Donald McClarey wrote an article titled “The Purpose of Politically Correct Lies” where he discussed how the purpose of today’s Mainstream Media isn’t to convince Americans of the lies and distortions that they preach to the American people. However, it is to distort reality, make it difficult for the people to differentiate reality from fiction, and leave the people more pliable and able to be controlled. He wrote…
“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is…in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”
Then on Sunday morning’s FOX and Friends author and columnist Deroy Murdock broke down the Democrat Party’s record on border security. Interestingly, it shows that repeatedly, Democrats have voted against securing America’s borders while protecting illegal entry into America. As a result, thousands of Americans die each year from violent assaults and illegal drugs, but Democrats continue to fight against America and Americans.
Therefore, as President Trump fights for ‘We the People’ in securing the border, preserving our constitution, safeguarding our freedoms, promoting a healthy and vigorous economy, and stop the slanderous lies and distortions that are being spewed out by left-wing radical communist ideologues, they are leveling a multi-front assault on our nation and our constitution. They are fighting to derail our nation’s economy, weaken the middle class, further separate the rich and poor, weaken border security while opening the border to new and more obedient voters and easily controlled voters, and slowly erode our constitution and all the freedoms it bestows upon ‘We the People’. Meanwhile, the second prong of their attack involves the Mainstream Media’s efforts to continually erode American’s confidence in news reporting so that the people lose focus on what is real, what is fake, and therefore become more easily controlled and manipulated by the Elitists and their Soviet and Russian style communist leadership.
Therefore, when you ask what has changed that has made Democrats reverse course and oppose their former anti-illegal alien, pro-border wall/fence, pro-border security agenda, it is not only President Trump but their need to further their communist ideology and agenda. After all, until they find a way to impune their ideological will upon America and the American people, the war for our nation will only get more bitter, more virulent, and more appalling in the coming days and years.
