This is day number one of the hostage crisis known as the Schumer Shutdown. As a result, it is not deal making; it is now hostage negotiation.
Schumer pulled the trigger of shutting down the government over an identity group called DACA Dreamers. and their demands. A non budget related item shoehorned into the CR to keep government running.
Now people like some Republicans can have problems with continued CR’s, but this was inserting a bomb into that CR process. And it accomplished its objective, shutting down government. Schumer’s success is defined as a shutdown. He is now on the outside.
Sure people can say a government shutdown is nothing new but it is a new strategy. Just insert your favorite little item, as a demand, to intentionally blow up the process. And it is done to force compliance to their whims by holding the entire government hostage to those demands. But it must be a very important thing to do that, no? No. It’s 700 thousand people blackmailing the whole government.
This is the radical left today. And all the logic and reason is not supposed to make sense, they want what they want. They don’t care about fixing anything, they want to break everything, including the rule of law. All that matters are their nefarious ends.
Trump has told them he will not negotiate on their issue while they are holding the government hostage. It reminds me of the Air Traffic Controllers and Reagan.
Take a real look though. This is actually called winning! Of course Dems will go to scorched earth measures when they are getting beat. It is what they do when they lose.
A politically manufactured shutdown.
So now when media gasbags — who actually helped spawn this radicalism — talk about some deal or deal-making process, it is too late. We are now in a hostage negotiation stage not deal making. This is blackmailing government for a small identity group.
Then, Friday, Schumer was invited to the White House to talk. But he brought a laundry list of demands. Really? Can you really, earnestly negotiate with Democrats or terrorists?
Here is what cheesy Schumer said a few years ago.
Governmental Chaos is exactly what Schumer is rolling out on the people — all over illegal immigration. Just call him Constitutional Chaos Chuck.
Fun fact: Obama did not get a budget passed until 2015. His first budget through Congress was passed after 6 years in office. In fact, he also blew right through any deadlines of making a budget. Dems were not the least bit concerned, because their radicalism and politicization of government was ruling the roost.
Then in 2016, Politico reported (2/8/16):
Even as Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders quarrel over who’s a “progressive” and who’s not, the president will propose a sweepingly progressive policy agenda that includes a $10-a-barrel oil tax, an expensive Medicaid expansion, a $4 billion initiative to promote computer science in public schools and the first down payment on a “moon shot” research initiative to cure cancer led by Vice President Joe Biden.”
Now Schumer has a moonshot of his own in mind. Go for broke.
If Dems wanted to force their DACA issue so badly, over funding gov, then why isn’t Chuck proudly taking credit for the Schumer Shutdown? Why blame Trump?
