The biggest political story of the week is sure to be the government shutdown, which began on Saturday. Regardless of how long it lasts, the ability to point the finger at the GOP has the leftists in Congress and the media licking their chops.
While we already know exactly how the media’s going to “report” about the situation, President Trump is going on the offensive, laying the blame where it belongs–at the feet of the Democrats.
As reported at the New York Post, the Trump administration made an amusing change to their comment line voicemail that’s available for public use, by making sure callers know exactly who’s to blame for the government shutdown.
“Thank you for calling the White House. Unfortunately, we cannot answer your call today, because Congressional Democrats are holding government funding, including funding for our troops and other national security priorities, hostage to an unrelated immigration debate,” a woman says on the outgoing message. “Due to this obstruction, the government is shut down. ”
On Friday night, the leftist clowns in the Senate voted against a temporary spending bill that would’ve kept the government funded until February 16. Immediately following the vote, the chorus of propaganda began emanating from the media and the Democratic Party, which is pretending they’re protecting the Constitution and justice or something.
Like the typical obstructionists they are, they’ve refused to give an inch on the DACA issue, which protects the nearly 1 million illegals brought here by their parents. It’s funny because the GOP has signaled it’s okay with not deporting the DACA kids, as many want them to stay just as bad as leftists.
Democrats know how easy it is to get the spineless GOP to cave on issues, even when they have clear control, so they’re hoping that their government shutdown strategy will put the pressure on the GOP to capitulate since they know they won’t be getting any of the blame in the press.
The hotline says that until a resolution on spending is found, you can leave a comment for the president online.
“In the meantime, you can leave a comment for the president at http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact. We look forward to taking your calls as soon as the government reopens,” the message says.
For conservatives, we just have to hope that Trump can keep the GOP to hold the line and not give in to the Left’s disgusting tactics. They’re perfectly willing to see soldiers go without pay if it means keeping the illegals flowing into the US, which is exactly why it’s so important to stand up to them for once, so maybe this garbage way of governance doesn’t continue happening.
