After an entire weekend of cultivated and pedantic “resistance” to the rule of law, the democrats have finally succumbed to the will of President Trump and We The People.
Beginning late last week, it became painfully obvious that the left was going to sacrifice a functioning U.S. government for the vote-grabbing politics of their phony obsessions with DACA, its dreamers, and illegal immigration.
Chuck Schumer, the Senate minority leader, was quick to put his stamp on the shutdown, leading the charge for the left. Then, of course, when faced with the blame for the entire debacle, the delusional democrat simply faded into obscurity. Soon, #SchumersShutdown was trending, and the entire world knew that he American political left had once again put the goals of foreign citizens above the American Dream.
Sometime over the weekend, thankfully, the left did a whole lot of maturing, and it looks as though Schumer will back off his resistance roost for the time being.
“The Senate on Monday voted 81-18 to break a Democratic filibuster on a stalled government spending bill, clearing the way for Congress to approve the stopgap measure and end the three-day government shutdown.
“Democrats effectively backed off their opposition, after being given assurances from majority Republicans.
“Before the vote, Senate Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer made clear that Democrats would supply the GOP-controlled Senate with the votes needed, in exchange for “fair” and immediate efforts to consider legislation that would protect illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children. It was a stark contrast from his position just a few days ago.
“’We will vote today to reopen the government,’ Schumer, a New York Democrat, said on the Senate floor. ‘In a few hours, the government will reopen.’
“The 100-member, Republican-controlled chamber will now need only a simple majority to pass the temporary spending bill that would keep the government open until Feb. 8. The House would then have to approve the bill, sending it to President Trump’s desk.”
The ease at which the democrats retreated in this fight has been indicative of the situation that those who oppose the President find themselves in.
Donald Trump is no politician-done-good story, we must remember. Trump is, instead, an American enigma and one of the most successful businessmen of our modern world. To be seated across the figurative table from a man as accomplished as he is would certainly do a number on one’s psyche – something that Schumer was clearly not prepared for.
