Thoughts on the government shutdown

I'm curious what everyone thinks of the temporary 3 week reprieve Trump has given to allow federal workers to be paid. He has said that if they don't come up with a solution by February 15th, the shutdown will resume and he would go the national emergency route.

I'm not sure if this is a good move or not. From what I have seen, most on our side are not happy with it. They see him as either caving or weakening his position. Obviously the Dems are going to promote it as a win for them either way. The silver lining is that this may make Trump look like the good guy in the eyes of the public. He was the one that offered concessions to end the shutdown, and the Dems gave him the middle finger in return. And he is the one who has allowed a temporary reprieve for the federal workers, while the Dems have literally done nothing.

What I do know this is not over yet. What I see happening is the Dems are not going to budge. In their eyes Trump flinched so they have no reason to budge now. Especially now that the pressure for the federal employees getting paid is off. So Trump will have to go the national emergency route. It will inevitably be challenged by the lower courts where it will eventually go to the Supreme Court, and they will be the deciding factor who wins. Here we will find out if Kavanaugh and Gorsuch are worth their weight or not.

I am cautiously optimistic that this will work out in Trump’s, for the reasons you laid out.  Trump offered them everything they wanted more than once, and they gave their collective middle finger.  

The Dems have always thought they had him backing up, and they think that again.  That will, historically, drive them to overplay their hand.

Cautiously optimistic is a good and reasonable way to look at this.  I'm not seeing it as a cave, at least not yet.  The President needs to have offered the olive branch to the Dems.  I'm sure knows that Pelosi and Schumer and the entire Leftist organization may very well turn that olive branch into a whipping switch and try to spank him with it.  Things are not good in our Republic, not on any front or any stretch of the word.  Muslims sitting in the House of Representatives has me more concerned than anything else at this juncture.  The President's business prowess mat well prove to be victorious.  However, the feckless Republicans worry me, they haven't backed the President or the people yet, and listening to them offers me reason to think that at this point they will suddenly grow spines.  Prayer for the President and the nation is imperative right now.  Jerome

 It seems that President Trump extended an olive branch to the dems & rino's, in hopes that they would work with him on funding the wall. If after 3 weeks there is no funding, the government shut down should begin again.

Considering that Texas found 98,000 non citizens registered to vote, and 58,000 illegally voted in Texas, how many more are in other states, controlled by dems, are decimating our electorate?

The dems are fighting to keep power. They care nothing for Americans. Wonder how many of the newly elected dems in congress were put in office by illegal voters?

Considering the fact that we've been led to believe there are mere 11 million illegals in America and we've been led to believe that that number hasn't changed in the past 10 years, it's safe to assume that there are at minimum 22 million illegals here.  Given that safe number, you can reasonably assume that as many as 1 or 2 million have voted.  States like Washington, Florida, Oregon, California, New York, Illinois and yes Texas are currently inundated with illegal aliens who have voted and are voting and will vote yet again.

I would think that there would be more than 25 million illegals in our country at this point Jerome. There is also little doubt that those non citizens have voted in our elections.

Democrat socialist Stacey Abrams, during her run for governor, encouraged illegals to vote for dems. This is the same woman that the dems have chosen to give a response to President Trumps SOTU. The only reason illegals voting were exposed in Texas, is because of the republicans. In states that are controlled by democrats, the illegal voters will not be exposed, most likely be allowed to register to vote and the democrats will maintain control.

Unfortunately, no one knows exactly how many illegals from around the globe are now residing in the U.S.  There is no doubt that illegals have managed to vote in almost every state, including Alaska and Hawaii.
