Yes, Mr. Schumer…let’s talk budget, bricks and your sanctuary for excuses. Over the past 8 years, one man raised the national debt by a record 9.5 trillion, or roughly as much as all other presidents combined; and all despite collecting record tax revenue from hyper-inflated tax rates during his presidency. And did Democrats once threaten to force a shutdown in order to restore fiscal responsibility to Washington? Not once? How disappointing. Not only did such reckless spending result in two credit downgrades, the first in American History, these dollars did nothing to alleviate our failing infrastructure which is currently rated a D+ – as demonstrated by the Oroville Dam collapse in California – to strengthen our military against evolving terrorist threats, or to improve our nation’s cyber-security grid to guard against rogue and nefarious hackers; not so much those of the Russian variety, those foreign collaborators who enriched Hillary Clinton and John Podesta at an unprecedented scale without media hysterics, but more so of the homegrown variety carried out by Homeland Security against three American states just weeks before the election. And did any of these egregious events trigger any alarms or the collective ire of the Democrat party? Not even remotely; or in progressive parlance, no more than an ISIS flag being waved on the Berkeley campus by an undocumented student granted free tuition as peaceful Trump supporters are beaten by the “enlightened” minds of tolerance. Who knew completing the necessary paperwork to become a respectful and proud citizen was as difficult, if not as discriminatory, as finding the term “free speech” on an ethics exam in modern academia?
Instead of sound budgetary planning and alleviating the burden of taxpayers, the Obama administration stopped at nothing to build their socialist utopia of dependent voters and to zealously aid the sworn enemies of Western Civilization with gratuitous glee. Over one billion was spent on Obamacare in 2016 – another 100 million of public funds to illegally market failed socialist healthcare since its inception – roughly 100 billion was spent annually to harbor and care for illegal immigrants and transported refugees, 535 million was wasted on the ‘green energy’ PR placebo known as Solyndra, and nearly half a billion was given to the nuclear ambitious regime of Iran; those who vow to destroy America daily, with millions more going to fellow terrorist agents like the Muslim Brotherhood and the Palestinian Authority.
And now, despite the unforgivable fact America boasts nearly 50 million on welfare, a number that has nearly doubled since 2008, and a national debt that has surpassed 100% of our yearly GDP, Chuck Schumer wants to shut down the US government – not due to scandalous spending or previous treasonous Islamic ties – but to oppose a 10 billion dollar wall that will help enforce our abandoned immigration laws at one-tenth the annual cost necessary to provide for, educate and house a populace that accounts for over 20% of all crime committed in the United States. Unless raising the debt by one cent is no longer unpatriotic or a dereliction of duty, as Barack Obama once uttered in 2006, and the wall between Mexico and Guatemala/Latin America is now suddenly racist and a crime against humanity, then the time has come to shut down this liberal fairy tale where logic is so unbearably offensive and real leadership requires a press conference explaining why politicians must be held accountable for their actions; or in electoral terms, for not putting America first each and every damn day.
