No Amnesty

Duel Shy-Theads of the week. Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham. Both leading the way to put illegal immigrant amnesty before funding our government and military.

Mr. President. A note for you Sir. You are teetering on the edge of losing me and a considerable chunk of deplorables. No “love bill” amnesty. Do you even know where the Obama Administration sent illegal immigrant minors when they spread them around the country? This is the next batch of “Dreamers.” Build the wall. Take a gigantic enema to the DOJ and the FBI. Drain the swamp or become part of it.

I have never tried political prognostication. It is a pointless industry where abject failures get wealthy. From where I sit, slightly below ground in the bunker operations center, there remains a collection of people who do not know why they’ve had their butts handed to them in multiple local, state and national elections. Nor does their highly paid consultants know “What Happened.” They are in denial and continue to double down with the only strategy they have – at all costs illegal immigrant amnesty and standing in the way of progress.

For the Washington cabal, the problem is not that complicated. These simply do not know me – the common American. They don’t know my neighbors. They don’t know the guys down at the garage that service my vehicle. They don’t know the Servicemen and Servicewomen who are prepared each day to lay it on the line defending even rotten to the core politicians who clearly do not give a rat’s hind quarters about them and in tandem our country.
Hillary Clinton, the progressive queen mother, called those of us who chose the other candidate deplorables.

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?” Clinton said. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.” – Hillary Clinton

Mrs. Clinton made certain to highlight all of the popular “ists” and phobias. Speaking for myself, I have grown weary of being labeled racist because I am white and do not live in New York or some other democrat ruined city. I’m tired of being called a racist because I do not support illegal immigration presented in any fashion or amnesty for those who came here illegally. I’m weary of being labeled sexist because I would not vote for Hillary Clinton. Tired of being called homophobic because I believe marriage should be between one man and one woman. Tired of being called Islamaphobic because I believe the earth should be cleansed of terrorists whatever their name brand. Tired of being called Xenophobic which is a redundant compilation of all the other slurs. I’m an American. Period. You Mrs. Clinton along with your allies are not.

They tell me it was white privilege more specifically white male privilege that got me out of West Virginia’s coal mining communities where indoor plumbing was a rarity. The same privilege that had me working in a Chicago factory when I was a 16-year-old high school dropout and into the Army before I was 19. Was the color of my skin the reason I got a college degree taking evening and weekend classes when my service duties infrequently permitted? Was it for that same reason I was able to achieve the Army’s highest enlisted rank and have a successful post Army career? Nope. Did success and failure have nothing to do with work ethic or purpose? It was all handed to me and along with it I became responsible for poor life choices made by others.

Hey Washington. Start acting like grownups. Dump the identity politics act and the pretense that you care for anyone or any thing but yourself. No amnesty. Build the wall.
