The American LEFT vs. Senator Schumer - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

As expected the uber liberal left of the Democratic Party is up in arms that Democrat Senators blinked over the Government shutdown.   The Democrats were playing in to the hands of the Republicans, the US voter could not understand why the Democrats closed the Government down over illegal immigrants.   The Republicans stayed on message and the Trump Oval did not tweet, thus the Democrats blinked.  A DACA deal needs to be done, but not under threat of a shutdown.   The DACA debate is about civil rights of those bought to the US when they were young, they need legal status if not the right to become a citizen. 

The Mueller Probe - The US Attorney General Interviewed - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

The Mueller Probe is buildings its blocks for a charge against President Trump, the charge will be Obstruction of Justice for the firing of the FBI Director who was looking at the Russian actions during the 2016 election.   It is only a matter of time before POTUS is asked to answer questions from the Special Prosecutor.   The Trump Oval must be worried what Sessions said to the probe, the Oval has been highly critical of Jeff Sessions in the past, those tweets of Trump could come back to bite him on the backside.   The probe is closing in on Trump.

Trump on the Democrats - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

Thus the Washington D.C shutdown was a win for the Republicans, moderate Democrats caved and forced the Party to go along.   As stated in previous post the liberal base will be up in arms, they see that the Shutdown did not last long enough to hurt the Republicans and Trump.  Also as stated that running for the 2020 nomination voted no to re- opening the government, thus any moderates or right wingers have no chance in the Democratic Party.  As for DACA, the Democrats are fickle friends, the Democrats only got agreement for their to be a discussion, no promise on the result or if the House would go along.  In essence a pointless two days. 

The LIBERAL base of the Democratic Party - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

The LIBERAL base of the Democratic Party will not be happy, Senator Schumer will have been seen to blink when faced with polls showing that the Democrats were being blamed by the US voters when it came to the shutdown, it never looks good when you support giving something to illegal immigrants at the cost of those born and bread in the US.  As CNN noticed those who are thinking of running in 2020 did not vote for the Bill, they know how important the base is when coming to running for the nomination.   It can be said that Trump was a great deal maker, he knew when to walk away and let the Congressional leaders solve the problem without promising anything in return. 

The Democrats and the SHUTDOWN - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

The Democrats caved, they closed the government down for nothing, the Republican Senate leadership did not promise that the DACA bill would pass and it has no say on what the Republicans say in the HOUSE.  One can assume that Speaker Ryan will come under pressure from the Conservatives in the Republican Party not to take up any bill on DACA from the Senate, it depends on what President Trump says about the issue.   Will the Trump Oval give cover to House Republicans to vote for DACA, it is seen as amnesty by the more Conservative element, and Trump won the Republican nomination and the Presidency based on his anti immigration views.  The next few weeks will be interesting.

Democrats BLINK over SHUTDOWN - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

The moderate Democrats on the HILL just blinked, those Senators from RED STATES who are up for re-election were not willing to tie their political futures to the fate of the Dreamers.   Whatever the Senate decides to about DACA; this blog support granting amnesty to those Dreamers; the House is more Conservative, it will take the Oval to give political cover should House Republicans want to deal on DACA.   The Democrats lost the political message WAR, they were playing to their base, very liberal, very pro illegal immigration, the rest of the US might support DACA but not as the cost of closing down the Government.

The Clinton Investigation - Congressional Investigation


Lets Get Real:

The swamp that is Washington D.C could never be trusted when it comes to the Clintons and the Obama Administration.   The Obama Justice Department covered for Obama and HRC,  so it would not be shocked to learn that the Clintons were never under any real threat of being charged due to HRC's email server or the Clinton Foundation.   The Republicans should really go after these scandals, have open hearings, see if the Clinton swamp is hiding anything from the public.
