It’s President Trump’s first State of the Union address – but not all lawmakers are planning to attend. Some Democrats have announced they will protest the event; some plan to wear black in honor of the Me Too movement against sexual misconduct. And still others, like those listed below, plan to boycott the Jan. 30 State of the Union altogether. Rep. Earl Blumenauer Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., said he will stay home during the State of the Union – just like he did during Trump’s inauguration. “Hearing from Oregonians and working together to protect our values and advance policies that actually strengthen our communities is a more productive use of my time,” Blumenauer said in a statement. Rep. Pramila Jayapal In a Twitter video, Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., announced on Ma
Illegal Alien activists say they are “outraged” after Senate Democrats did not leave the federal government shut down in order to force a deal whereby millions of illegal aliens are given amnesty at the expense of American citizens. In a protest outside of the U.S Capitol, open borders advocates and illegal alien activists slammed Democrats after they originally shut down the federal government to push amnesty for illegal aliens, but then caved to President Trump and voted to reopen the government without an amnesty attached to the funding bill. Illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program with the open borders group “United We Dream,” which is funded by globalist billionaire George Soros, said they were e
Senate Democrats caved on the “Schumer Shutdown,” on Monday and agreed to a three-week spending bill that will fund the government until February 8. Shortly before the cloture vote, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) told reporters that after leaving the Democratic meeting, the three-week Continuing Resolution (CR) might even get 70 votes. In the end, the Senate approved the motion to invoke cloture and end debate, 81-18, featuring overwhelming bipartisan support. https://twitter.com/stevenportnoy/status/955484915772125184 One Senate Democratic source told reporters that the CR is “good to go” in the Senate, and revealed that Democrats remain fully aware of the negative polling that suggests that Democrats will take the blame for shutting the government to force a vote on the Deferred Actio
President Donald Trump called for a DACA amnesty “Bill of Love” during a meeting Tuesday with congressional Republicans and Democrats at the White House. “This should be a bill of love, truly. It should be a bill of love, and we can do that,” Trump said. “I really do believe Democrat and Republican, the people sitting in this room, really want to get something done,” Trump said, adding that he was looking for a “bill of love” from Congress. Trump spoke at length to the bipartisan meeting, urging them forward on offering legalization for DACA recipients but also ending chain migration and visa lottery systems, as well as demanding border security. The president spoke to reporters with Sen. Dick Durbin on his right and House Minority Leader Steny Hoyer on his left. Other members of
Dana Loesch joined Tucker Carlson tonight to react to the "controversy" surrounding a recent American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) tweet, and how the left is turning on itself. On Wednesday, the ACLU posted a photo of a white baby holding an American flag to its Twitter page, with the caption, "This is the future that ACLU members want." The group quickly backtracked and apologized after some accused them of promoting white supremacy. https://twitter.com/ACLU "The old institutions on the left - the Democratic Caucus in the Congress, the ACLU, the big institutions - they've lost control of their own followers, who have become super radical and crazy and race-obsessed and violent and dangerous," Tucker said. "They're afraid of these people too." Loesc
Republicans Started Acting Like Democrats Reacting to news that Massachusetts State Rep. Michelle DuBois (D-Brockton) allegedly tipped off illegal immigrants to impending ICE raids, Tucker Carlson asked what the response would be if Republicans did something similar. Carlson said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" that it was "ironic" and "reckless" that DuBois, a lawmaker, would invite people to defy or ignore laws. "We live in a society based on the expectation that good people will follow rules and those who don't will be punished," he said. He noted the rule of law is what allows Americans to have a bank account, be able to eat food without fear of being poisoned, and so forth. "Undermine [the rule of law] and at some point civilization starts to fall apart," he said. He...
