Trump: ‘I’d love to see a shutdown’ unless Dems fix immigration

by Stephen Dinan

President Trump said Tuesday that he would “love to see a shutdown” over immigration if Democrats don’t come to the table to negotiate on border security and other stiff enforcement measures, escalating the stakes with less than four weeks to go before a deadline for action.

“If we have to shut it down because the Democrats don’t want safety … let’s shut it down,” the president said at a White House roundtable discussion on MS-13 gang violence and illegal immigration.

The tough talk seemed to upend congressional Republicans’ carefully crafted strategy of avoiding shutdown threats, hoping to pin blame on Democrats if the government did tumble into another stoppage.

Rep. Barbara Comstock, a Virginia Republican who represents a number of federal employees, told Mr. Trump that she thought lawmakers could reach an immigration deal without resorting to the worst-case scenario.

    It’s actually funny, in a way, how the liberal media (redundant) is reporting what the President said. All they heard was “Shut it down”. They NEVER heard nor reported that he said “If the democrats don’t want safety…”. They never report the whole story. During the Obama shut down, Obama was talking about how it would effect the elderly and the military families. They NEVER reported how he “found” the money to keep up his give away programs running at the expense of military readiness. They NEVER reported that HE choose to take the money form the programs with the greatest impact, like closing the outdoor monuments, just to blame the GOP for his mis-management, his desire not to compromise at all and his desire for maximum pain to show his “compassion”.

    The Globalist Elites who control America’s Deep State and the Fascist/Muslim/Socialist EU are committing nation suicide by importing massive numbers of Muslim Jihadists. The Globalists have a plan and they are working hard toward enslaving us with A Fascist/Islamic/Socialist World Government. The Globalist/Elitist powers aka our leaders & their puppets. Example: Barack Obama, have intentionally inflicted the mass Muslim invasion on the western world by turning the middle east into a greater hell with their endless Muslim wars. The Globalist elites demanded the overthrow of Saddam and Qaddafi so they were disposed of by Globalist puppet Bush and Globalist puppet Obama. The Fascist Socialist leaders of America and the Fascist/Muslim EU have destroyed stable regimes in the ME and created the vacuum now filled by Islamofascist Jihadists. This instability is causing the Muslim exodus, some are coming to escape & many are coming to kill. Why are the Globalists doing this to us? To cause great civil upheaval and fighting. Why? They want a reason to step in and declare Martial Law thus seizing total control of our populace and eventually the entire world’s populace. Then their dream of a UN world government can be shoved down everyone’s throat. That’s why the Fascist Left wants our guns. The Globalists want us helpless and at their mercy and they will show no mercy once they are in total control. The NWO Global Government’s blueprints are called UN Agenda 21 and UN Agenda 2030 and it is to be FULLY IMPLEMENTED in just 12 years if the Globalists succeed. It erases our nation’s borders, voids all American laws, seizes private property. Our US Constitution will be worthless paper under this UN world government. Some of these NWO Globalists promoting this insanity are David Rockefeller (now deceased), Barack Obama, Henry Kissinger, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, George Soros, the Clintons, the Bush family, the Pope, Michael Bloomberg, the Rothschild’s, the Bilderberg group, members of the Council On Foreign Relations and members of the Tri-Lateral Commission. Most all the Democrats and some Republicans want a Global Government so don’t be fooled by political labels. Watch their actions, do they get money from Nazi Anarchist George Soros like Jeb Bush and John Kasich do. Soros blood money is not given as a gift, it has strings. The Globalist’s controlled Deep State controls our money and keeps us in constant wars. We can weaken the Deep State by getting out of the United Nations Now! We must stop the Globalists or America is finished as a Republic, if not already!!
