Laura Ingraham supports Trump but he’s surrendering to Dems and RINO establishment if he signs the spending bill from quisling sellouts McConnell and Ryan. No border wall…
Laura Ingraham points to a stack of paper on her desk that is equal to the Omnibus spending package that Congress will have approximately 48 hours to read portions of, revise virtually none of, consider and then either approve or “vote to shut down the government.” If the American people had our way, if we had real representation in DC, they’d pass a short term spending bill and then really get to work.

Ingraham points out to the size of the spending bill and declares correctly that nobody is going to read it. They’ll perhaps scan portions, have their staffs do likewise and then vote on what they think is probably in there. She calls it a “business as usual spend-o-rama at a time when voters expected just the opposite, from a President who campaigned against the corruptocrats in DC.”
She notes that with the sequester caps gone, Republicans “are linking arms with Democrats. Yes, they’re spending more on things we should not be funding at all and things the President vowed to defund.” She asks, “So how on earth do Republicans expect the voters to turn out in November for them if they can’t live up to the basic precepts of what they campaigned on?”
She points out that only “$1.6 billion dollars in this disaster is devoted to border security, that’s it, and a paltry $641 million to the wall the President campaigned on how many times. That’s a pittance and it’s not even close to what the President requested to ensure that the wall would actually get built – not just lip service.”
Ingraham notes that earlier in the day President Trump called both Ryan and McConnell to his office for a meeting in which he was reportedly reconsidering supporting the omnibus bill. She reads through the White House spin stressing the good news and ignoring the gag-inducing stench, noting that it’s the same old ploy that produces a GOP surrender every time one of these spending bills is up for consideration, the threat of a government shutdown was clearly shoved in the President’s face by the two establishment toadies.
Ingraham says, “It pains me to say this, but the President is buying a pig in a poke here. He won on calling out the establishment, on naming names, yes, even when it made things uncomfortable. So I have a question – where did that Donald Trump go? And where does all of our money go in this bill?” She points out that it is either borrowed or printed money that we don’t have.
She notes that “the Pentagon budget balloons to an obscene $700 billion, that’s more than $80 billion over current limits. Sanctuary cities? Fully funded, Jerry Brown’s happy. Planned Parenthood? A half a billion dollars to the death factory.”
There also the Democrat welfare programs that compensates for their mismanagement and funds their corruption called “community development bloc grants – racist “it’s all whitey’s fault” busy work and “free money” extorted from taxpayers. It’s okay, they tell us, “America is a racist country, so we owe it to them.” Wealth redistribution demanded by the Communist Democrats by any other name is still just as much of an abomination.
On Wednesday Senator Rand Paul tweeted sarcastically, “It’s a good thing we have Republican control of Congress or the Democrats might bust the budget caps, fund planned parenthood and Obamacare, and sneak gun control without due process into an Omni … wait, what?”
The bill includes $4.6 billion to fight the opioid addiction epidemic, a $3 billion increase. More than $2 billion for school safety training, security measures and treatment for the mentally ill. The welfare handouts are in there big time, with child care and development block grants going up by over 100% from $2.4 billion to $5.2 billion.
An Obama-era transportation grant program called TIGER is being tripled to $1.5 billion. Head Start for preschoolers would get a $610 million boost, with another $2.4 billion going to child care grants.
It ‘s ironic that President Trump is touting the funding for battling the opioid crisis, the symptoms, when there is nothing in the bill to eliminate the cause, the open borders.
Of that paltry $1.6 billion for the border, none of it funds the new prototypes of the type erected in California. And less than half of the measly 95 miles of border construction, including levees along the Rio Grande in Texas, is for new barriers. The rest is simply repairs to existing segments. There won’t be the massive hiring of Border Patrol agents we were promised, either.
In offering a preemptive excuse once again for his total capitulation to the Democrats and establishment globalists, Speaker Paul Ryan said, “No bill of this size is perfect, but this legislation addresses important priorities and makes us stronger at home and abroad.”
No, it doesn’t, Ryan. If it did you’d be against it. It takes us closer to insolvency, which weakens us. It leaves our borders open to invasion and trafficking and empowers anti-American Democrats while weakening support for our President. It’s an awful bill that President Trump should veto. Shut the government down, furlough the federal employees, without pay. They’re mostly Democrats anyway. Let them feel the sting of what they’ve brought upon this nation.
It’s a good thing we have Republican control of Congress or the Democrats might bust the budget caps, fund planned parenthood and Obamacare, and sneak gun control without due process into an Omni…wait, what?
