It’s absolutely stunning to imagine after the GOP loss of the House that even a single Republican Senator could follow defeat with a refusal to agree with the president on something as basic as preserving our national sovereignty. On Thursday twelve GOP members of the Senate did exactly that when they sided with Democrats across the aisle and in the House to pass the Joaquin Castro (D-TX) resolution to quash Trump’s emergency declaration.
Democrats are taking another stab at immigration policy failure. In typically deceptive fashion they called H.R. 6 The American Dream and Promise Act at its March 12, 2019 unveiling.
The real purpose of this bill is less flashy and a lot more honest:
To authorize the cancellation of removal and adjustment of status of certain aliens, and for other purposes.
Diversity is a pillar of the Democratic agenda that is threatening to crush hopes for a sweeping takeover next year. One of the party’s greatest strengths has always been its ability to reach a consensus, or at least the appearance of agreement on what members stand for.
What is the price tag on injustice to a life? That’s the impossible question 29 Democrats signing on to move slavery reparations forward with H.R. 40 have to answer. By acknowledging blame, issuing a national apology, and compensating black Americans for wrongs that began four centuries ago can we atone for problems we have no way to measure?
Greed is great. It’s such a powerful motivator that it can even make you president, or at least that’s the hope of two Democratic Party candidates looking to face off against Trump in the 2020 presidential race if the House doesn’t unseat him first.
