Stealing Victory from the Jaws of Dumbass

I’m all for the shutdown. Yes, it messes things up. My next two weeks just got a whole lot busier. But the shutdown fights are the only tool to get an increasingly treacherous foreign-owned Democrat party on the record. They will fund nothing if they do not get their DACA money for illegals.  And it’s not the money that hurts, but the principal.  If we cannot undo the divisive Alinskyite progressive executive orders from the Obama administration under a Trump administration, with both houses in support (“support”), then why do we bother?  So money for illegals it is then! Fine — shut it down.
McConnell should have been up there hellfire and brimstone on the fact that the United States Government has no mandate to provide for illegal invaders in our midst, and in fact has no Constitutional authority to do so.  But there goes Mitch McConnell, bemoaning the loss of the horribly flawed SCHIP program, itself an illegal immigrant wealth transfer, instead of making the case for a good sound shutdown to demonstrate for whom the Republicans say the government is established.
There are serious issues in play here, and the GOP still cannot see their way to fighting on issues. Thank God for Trump. A McConnell/Ryan Republican party would have little to show in the way of differences between themselves and the Democrats.

Enjoy the shutdown, provided Weasel Graham doesn’t “fix” this damned ting by promising to lose later.  I know I will.  It will be the talk of the office.  I look forward to it.

    It’s my understanding that only non-essential services are affected by the shutdown. If they’re non-essential, that means we can do without them, right? So let’s… do without them, that is.

    It seems like terrible branding to call most of gubmit activity “non-essential.” The Left needs better brand management.

      Unless you want to visit a National Park this weekend.

      The last shut down we still managed to get “in” to Joshua Tree. Cars got ticketed (NP parking enforcement is essential, I guess) and if we got in trouble enough to need a rescue we would have been up shitscreek but. . .

        Dougy has vowed to keep GCNP open, just like his predecessors. Good argument to turn federal lands over to the states.

          And that’s the point, isn’t it? Obama weaponized the shutdown, in the words of Mulvaney. It doesn’t have to be the way it was under Obama, which reminds me…

          During the Obama shutdown in 2013, I was in New Hampshire. We went for a hike in some National Forest lands. Since the gubmint was shut down, I figured there was no need to pay the parking fee at the trailhead. Who would collect?

    How timely. I just read this at American Thinker, and it sums up where we are.

      Excellent/i> summary of the events of this past year!

      Is it not interesting how easily many of these things can be done.

      Next! Elimination of federal departments. Energy, HEW (or whatever cameleon name they have, like liberals, have now chosen to hide that they are not constitutional functions of the republic) for a start.

    Will we have military participation in the conference championships tomorrow?

    It is a diversion, to jam the FISA scandal from the headlines.

    Long term, it is a huge loser for the dems.

    If one of Trump’s smart guys at treasury can find a way to pay federal military and LEOs, which I bet private sector banks can do (who would not loan to a federal employee an amount that is sure to be reimbursed?), then it gives some real running room.

    Trump and his team are the last guys I want running a shut down executive if I am the Dems.

    Navy Federal and USAA (and probably others) are going to cover base pay for anybody whose pay regularly goes through those banks.
