It's like we're living on another world in deep, deep space. One year ago today Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and the Dems went bat crap crazy as history was being made. Indeed, as radical America first patriot Donald Trump (a Flag Day baby) was taking the oath of office they decided then and there to redefine the word "patriotism" for the new era. No longer does it mean for them "love my country right or wrong, and doing what is good for it." No. "Country" became a racist term for nativists and bigots; and loving it divided one from the rest of mankind, and impugned the utopian ideal of a borderless world where there's one government and country for all. For Chucky, Nancy and the Dems "patriotism" now means hating Trump right or wrong, and obstructing him on everything; and wanting America to suffer bad things and fail while he's President. And for Dems the most important place for Trump's America to fail is at our borders which they believe should be virtually erased so illegals can increase their base - and parts of this country become Mexico again.
Nowhere was this new, subversive redefinition of patriotism especially evident than when the outraged Dems rose up in defiance unanimously opposing Trump's "Armageddon" tax cuts to make American middle class workers and families prosperous and secure again. Such fervor hadn't been seen in a U.S. political party since 1776 when the Founders, ironically, went to war against England over oppressive taxation.
And now early this morning Chucky and the deranged Trump hating Dems struck another blow for their new patriotism: they closed down the government telling 1.3 million active soldiers and 9 million poor kids to
That 800,000 illegal DACA aliens are more important than them; and that unless they're made bona fide citizens (which they don't deserve) you, America's service men and women (fighting ISIS, al Qaida and the Taliban in an increasingly dangerous world) won't get paid; and you, 9 million vulnerable American boys and girls in 16 states won't have health insurance when you get sick. National defense and critical federal programs be damned! What's critical to our nation's future is defending the Dreamers, that Donald Trump fail and America continue its economic, military and geopolitical decline. It doesn't get anymore insane than this.

  1. This is the One Year Anniversary of my Presidency and the Democrats wanted to give me a nice present. #DemocratShutdown

    6:33 AM – 20 Jan 2018

    For those asking, the Republicans only have 51 votes in the Senate, and they need 60. That is why we need to win more Republicans in 2018 Election! We can then be even tougher on Crime (and Border), and even better to our Military & Veterans!

    6:44 AM – 20 Jan 2018

    1. Trump needs an image to sell this story. Some illegals crossing into the US.

      THUS should begin the 2018 campaign. This is a winner for every existing Trump voter and will grow his base even more. This is even a winner in the black community! Wages rising, Unemployment down, black citizens have the MOST to lose with the Democrats embrace of illegals. DJT should point out the true racism of the Democrats in taking blacks for granted as usual.

    1. Though 56 percent saddens me, (would imagine somewhere in the mid 90 percent back in the 1950s) i’ll take it.

      As long as a little more than half the country is sane, we have a chance.

      Maybe the youts will grow out of their insanity but they’ve been indoctrinated like no group ever before

      1. Justin writes “Though 56 percent saddens me, (would imagine somewhere in the mid 90 percent back in the 1950s) i’ll take it.

        It probably is over 60%. This is a CNN poll. I imagine the over sampled dems again.

    2. The Democrats will pay for the Schumer Shutdown. This isn’t 1996. The People no longer are dependent on the Liberal Media for getting their news.

      1. The Democrats will pay for the Schumer Shutdown. This isn’t 1996. The People no longer are dependent on the Liberal Media for getting their news.

        True, but also, an alleged “shutdown” could only work against a weak president.

        President Trump does not scare easily (or at all); thus, a “shutdown” will backfire against the Schumer Dems, AND it just might more completely unify our base.

        1. It doesn’t matter that this is a winning issue for those who are against DACA. The repukes will cave to solidify their loss in 2018.

          Watch them cave on this big issue that their base cares about.

    3. I can’t believe the dims really think pushing for illegals under some Orwellian term like “dreamers” is a winning strategy. If this economy keeps on pumping along POTUS is going to have great leverage, IF the repukes actually support him and his policies, and VOCALLY support him on all these talking head shows.

      1. “Dreamers” (”the best among us”) = 8% of the Arizona prison population….but I thought they were all becoming teachers and doctors and engineers and war heroes.

        1. And they are probably even a larger percentage of the California prison population. Murders, rapists, drug dealers, gang members…etc.

      1. sure the over whelming majority support daca when they phrase the question to get the answer they want AND over sample dems by 10 pts.

    4. 400 landlines, 600 cells. No other info available on CNN’s or their pollster’s site. They must be worried, message control ain’t working. Oh, wait. Maybe the Party of 5 remake will turn the tide.

  2. Last time we went through this veterans were blocked from DC memorials and giving the finger to Obama they went past park police and barriers anyway. Loved it.

  3. The ironic thing is: If these DACA kids had ALL been aborted, the left would see cause for celebration. Less breathers to destroy the planet!

    1. Oh, you are SO on to something…… When I meet a Pro-Abortion person, I ask them: “Aren’t you glad your Mother didn’t have you mutilated??”

  4. Mr. Apollo I Admire the commitment you put into your blog and in depth information you provide. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed information. Fantastic read!
