"Shithole": The Word That Could Shutdown A $4 Trillion Federal Government

As the mainstream media once again loses its collective mind over Trump's "shithole" comment, Congress, after expressing optimism just a few days ago, has once again descended into complete chaos with any hopes of a bipartisan immigration deal seemingly being tossed...well, down the "shithole."  

Unfortunately, this particular descension into chaos, unlike most of the others which are cleverly manufactured by seasoned politicians purely for soundbites on CNN, carries with it some real world economic risk as it could very well result in a government shutdown starting next Friday.  In fact, earlier this morning, Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) confirmed as much when he held a press conference saying that all hope of a bipartisan deal "died yesterday."

"So here’s what we’re going to do: We’re going to prepare our bipartisan agreement for introduction into the Senate next week. If the Republican leadership has a better alternative, bring it forward. If they don’t, for goodness sakes, give us a vote. I’ll be on the phone today with my Republican colleagues and my Democratic colleagues begging them to support this measure."

"Time is running out. We have to get this done. I thought we might get a bipartisan agreement approved by the White House, died yesterday. We have to do this and show leadership in Congress to solve this important challenge."

As Bloomberg  notes, the chaos on immigration comes a week before the current government spending authorization expires on January 19th. Of course, as our readers are aware, even though Republicans hold control of Congress, their narrow 51-seat advantage in the Senate means they will need at least 9 Democratic votes for any stopgap funding measure as well as for a broader budget agreement. Meanwhile, Democratic leaders have insisted that Congress must pass a law protecting some young immigrants along with the funding.

After bizarrely telling a bipartisan group of lawmakers earlier this week that he’s willing to sign whatever compromise on immigration they present, Trump vehemently rejected a plan worked out on Thursday and savaged the proposal on Twitter as “a big step backwards.”

Of course, not everyone took offense to Trump's comments even if they probably would have chosen some slightly more eloquent adjectives left to their own devices...

Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas said that, like Trump, he wants family-based immigration available to DACA recipients to be limited to spouses and minor children. Other family members, including siblings, parents and adult children, would be excluded. He also said he wants to eliminate the visa lottery program, which is intended to promote diversity among those coming to the U.S.

“The diversity lottery is a joke,” Cotton said Thursday. “It serves no humanitarian or economic purpose whatsoever. It should just be ended.”

Meanwhile Iowa Representative Steve King, one of the most vocal anti-immigration members of Congress, even celebrated Trump's choice of wording while taunting Democrats in the following tweet.

So what say you...will Washington's flip-floppers find a way to fold again or will the federal government be shut down as of next Friday?

Marcus Aurelius once wrote, "Speak no more about what a good man is, go be one."

Some rapper once claimed, "Talk is cheap, if you're really feeling froggy, leap."

I'm saying, "Shut it down then fuckers. What the fuck do I care if welfare, social security, the IRS, Congress, and education fucking derails? You take our money and give it to people that trash our cities, our homes, our ethics and moral standards and then come back demanding more. Fuck you duplicitous manipulators of good will. Let's see how your population stands up in a true meritocracy. Pull the trigger."

It may not be 'a good look' but it is honest. Thats the words I would use to describe the present situation. Its probably the most important question a politician has asked since I've been alive. It's how most of his voters feel too. Why ARE we bringing in shithole people from shithole countries when we already have a large and growing underclass we have to take care of?

 

Plus, I really don't give a shit if he uses third grader language, as long as he stops letting the left repopulate the country into a shithole...

The left/right divide is a red herring. The real problem is the swamp, which Trump has not drained yet, despite all the promises.

Yes there are libtards out there, but where do they get all these funny ideas from? Ultimately from the swamp.

People need to stop looking up for 'leaders' and realize that we are living in the planet of the apes. Stop paying taxes en masse then see the fuckers start paying attention to the 99% faster than a shoe drops.

The baseline for a "pact with the devil is the Obama admin.  There was not a single real complaint during his entire 8 years yet he was identical for 99% of purposes with Bush the Junior.

Additionally the Devil would not like the bad PR of how unsmoothly the press treats Trump.

So I am calling it as "no deal with devil as of yet"

Unless of course he is being used in wrestling parlance as "the heel".  But too many like him for that so .........

We're on the edge of an Obama, Clinton, DNC inspired race war, and the Washington Compost owned by Amazon CEO Bezos stirred the pot even thou there is no factual proof the president said it.

Didn't Trump the day before rail against Bezos and threatened an internet tax on Amazon? The Washington Compost runs anti-trust interference for Amazon.

It's interesting top tech companies ran by homosexuals, one homosexual was given tons of government money, just like the basketball team owner. Homosexuals in the media, in tech working to control our nation, to control the way we think, to put the nation in a homosexual inspired and directed race war lock down. I told you about Obama/Clinton's army of homosexuals. Look at MSNBC, the most twisted reality coming out of the mind of Maddow- the champion of homosexuals. Or how about Cooper at CNN, all homosexuals using inverted logic. We can't have a country like this when these kinds of minds are pushing, instigating, funding a race war in this country.

UN-Washed-over DC is a weapon creating Mass Shit-Holiness and supporting ugly, nasty women, niggers, and their nappy-headed sprogs & spawns.

Whites need their own country without the cultural divide.

A homogeneous solution is pure ; a tainted solution is not.

In due time, the liberal progs' dream is THEIR USA with the following numbers :

50 million more niggers

100 million more messicans

50 million more muzzscums

Before such a creamy dream of gulag goulash is reached, America will cease to exist.

We're already seeing the future in cities & towns everywhere.

The zio-squid anarchists' greed will see themselves enduring the countryside's teeming favelas as long as kikes own all productive assets, all arable land, and can wink & nod at the genuine worthlessness of their billions in personal cash.

Currently, their fiat's only value is its inherent ability to control the masses which are too ignorant to understand the depths of modern slavery. They know they're wage slaves but still laugh, joke, & giggle about their plight as if acknowledgement will one day change the course of scheming, hook-nosed joos.

I spit on their desire to remain uneducated, hence fooled.

Their lack of courage and will to survive is most appalling.

If only it were so easy to shut this out of control government down.

 

Unfortunately it isn't even a $4 Trillion shutdown as the headline implies.

Its only the appr 17% of govt considered "Non-Essential"; so its more like $700 Billion, not $4 Trillion.

And much of the this "Non-Essential" (Foreign Aid, PBS, Funding for the Arts etc etc) we shouldn't be spending on anyway.

Faux outrage is all libtards have to cover their own hypocrisy. "Shithole" is the new battle cry of the left like "Grab em in the pussy" was. How did that battle cry work out for you libtards once Hollyweird was exposed? This libtard faux outrage will just gin up their base, which will then unleash a literal shitstorm that will backfire and cover themselves in their own shit. Wait for it.
