Donald cuts disastrous deal with “Chuck and Nancy”

Decision described by GOP leadership insider as a “total victory” for the Democrats

Why would a Republican President who has the benefit of Republican majorities in both the U.S. House and Senate feel the need to make a no-win deal with the most obstinate of liberal leadership?  President Donald Trump did just that on Wednesday as he ceded incalculable power to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

They are called ‘Minority Leaders’ because their party is not in control. That renders the duo the president chummily calls “Chuck and Nancy,” second stringers.

Unable to fully absorb the enormity of President Trump’s actions, SRAZ waited a day, then two,  to post about this needless collusion. The passage of time has done nothing to bring about any appreciable comprehension or lessen the ire created by the deal that put liberals at the helm of the ship of state that is commanded by a Republican president.

As a business entrepreneur Donald Trump was well known for saying he “loved the art of the deal.” In 1987 he co-authored a book titled,The Art of the Deal.” Now, 30 years later he sits in the Oval Office, put there by American citizens who were fed up with liberals in control. Yet in this budget and debt limit deal, President Trump not only gave the left the upper hand, he allowed them to set the stage for passage of the nightmarish D.RE.A.M. Act as they claim victory.

Gloating Pelosi and Schumer released this joint statement:

In the meeting, the President and Congressional leadership agreed to pass aid for Harvey, an extension of the debt limit, and a continuing resolution both to December 15, all together. Both sides have every intention of avoiding default in December and look forward to working together on the many issues before us. As Democratic leaders, we also made it clear that we strongly believe the DREAM Act must come to the floor and pass as soon as possible and we will not rest until we get this done.

Don’t blink. It’s becoming difficult to keep up. This is the nightmarish D.R.E.A.M. Act  alternately known as DACA.

An excellent analysis describing conservative bewilderment is provided by Conservative Review. Take a few minutes to read Chris Pandolfo’s Unforgivable: Donald Trump just made Chuck Schumer POTUS.

    Thanks SRAZ. You describe my utter disappointment and those of our conservative friends to a “T.” A group of us met for dinner on Wednesday and the fury was palpable. We are all Trump voters who proudly posted Trump/Pence campaign signs in our yards. The word most often used at the table was “disgraceful.”

    While I was on the Conservative Review website, I found this post by David Horowitz which I also recommend:
    10 questions Trump & every Dem MUST answer about ‘Dream’ amnesty

  2. Frankly Speaking says:

    I never thought when Trump defeated the amnesty RINOs in the Republican primary he’d be joining with the amnesty loving Dems. We’ve been sucker punched.

  3. Saguaro Sam says:

    With Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka now banished from the WH by those who are controlling President Trump, he is isolated.

    Today, it is posted on breitbart that Jared Kushner, Trump’s beloved son-in-law, has been working with certain members of Congress to get amnesty done. Ivanka and Jared are Trump’s original two problems. The retired military generals are not to be trusted, as they are not cut from the same cloth as Eisenhower or Patton.

    Meanwhile, the European Union (and the anonymous people who are in charge) are forcing Hungary and Slovenia to take in muslim “refugees”, which up until this time they have refused to do.
    You recall that Hungarian Jew George Soros sold out his fellow Jewish people to the Nazis. Now, the Hungarian people are being victimized yet again.

    Soros’ actions contributed to this:

    Also,
    On the heels of Harvey, we have 3 active storms (Irma; Jose, and another in the Gulf of Mexico) and 2 substantial earthquakes in the past 24 hours (Mexico, 8.1 and Japan, 5.3). The Northern Lights (aurora borealis) was seen last night as far south as Edinburgh, Scotland due to a massive solar flare yesterday.
    It’s not climate change, folks.
    God is talking.
    Please pray to God for Mercy.
    Thanks.

    President Donald J. Trump is not stupid. We know he is five steps ahead in every situation. I still trust his actions. Ryan and McConnell both obstructed any business of We the People so Trump went to Pelosi and Schumer. Business will be done and the business done will favor We the People. Really, what does conservative mean anymore? That term is used by posers and liars.

    • Arizona Conservative Guy says:

      If you have to ask what conservative means, you obviously aren’t as much of one as you think. Perhaps you’ve been breathing the liberal polluted air from Tucson and Nogales too long.

      I view conservatism as Constitution based and following the principles that has kept America on course. When we have veered from them as during the past eight years under Obama, American citizens suffer the consequences. We are over 20 Trillion dollars in debt and entitlements are the order of the day. It is not only the impoverished who get “free” school breakfast and lunch, which are also available during the summer. The concept of embarrassment of not providing for one’s own family is a relic. Shame was long ago tossed by the wayside as unwed births have skyrocketed. Babies provide access to even more taxpayer paid benefits.

      Donald Trump and “Chuck” have had a long history together in New York politics. Hillary and Bill Clinton were guests at Donald and Melania Trump’s wedding. Would you have invited them to yours even if you knew them?

      In 1986, Ronald Reagan made a horrible mistake in allowing what was then supposedly 3 million illegals to get amnesty. Most of them lived in the southwest, predominantly California. Today, formerly red California that elected Reagan governor twice is now overwhelmingly blue and known as Mexico Norte. The current Gov. Jerry Brown welcomes them all. If you think this doesn’t matter, extrapolate this to the entire United States and kiss the Republican Party goodbye.

  5. greenvalleygal says:

    Why would anyone trust the words of Republican leadership? They are all swamp creatures along with Schumer and Pelosi.

  6. VINOAZ says:

    Have to disagree with SRAZ on this. The damn Republicans have done nothing. They can’t lead, they are gutless and weak. Maybe this will wake the morons up. Of course here in AZ, we have 2 of the worst! BTW Trump is not isolated. For example he met with Laura Ingraham last week. She has a clue, she gets it. Have to believe he meets with other as well. We need primary challenges by real Republicans.

    • State Delegate says:

      Of course it’s true the Republicans in congress have been asleep at the wheel. It’s also true that when there was an effort to repeal Obamacare, it failed by a single vote: John McCain’s!!

      The bottom line here is Democrats Schumer and Pelosi came away from this meeting with Pres. Trump with broad smiles on their faces, and getting everything they asked for.

      This is on Trump’s head. GOP leadership was not happy with Trump’s collusion. Neither will you be when your grandchildren’s ballot choices will be liberal and more liberal. Once the amnesty is in place for hundreds of thousands of illegals, they will ultimately register and vote Democrat. That’s why the left keeps pushing this issue.

  7. Conservative Since Birth says:

    I’m way more furious with Ryan and McConnell than I am with Trump. They have acted like fifth graders since inauguration day and want him to fail. Neither one of them has extended their hand to get things done. McConnell let McCain blow an Obamacare fix. Ryan sniffs behind Trump’s back every time Trump wants to do something. The GOP leadership caused what’s happening now. They want him to fail.

    I’m in agreement with Laura Ingraham.

  8. JohnJ says:

    If Trump or the Republicans do not deport the DACA recipiants or their parents, I will never vote again. To the people that say if you don’t vote you let other people the decisions, my wife worked at the state legislature in the mid 80’s and has never voted since. She says you can put the best man in the world in the legislature, but if he does not play the game he will never get anything accomplished. She saw it many times.
    There is an old saying that all politicians are liars. Congress and Trump are verifying that adage.

  9. jojo says:

    The Republican party in AZ has single-handedly been ruined by the great “conservative” McCain. Give me a break all you holier than thou “conservatives”. POTUS is in it for us….NOT the Republican party. I hope the party implodes and we start over with true Constitutional conservatives. The only 2 Representatives that will work with POTUS are Franks & Gosar. The rest are nothing but professional politicians more worried about re-election $$$ than the citizens they DON’T represent. TRUMP has our backs. You’re living in a McCain, Flake, McSally, Lines bubble. Gotta expose ’em before people see the light. I hope we start a MAGA party so all the RINO’s and democrats can form their own, which will include most of the Republicans in congress.

  10. Braveheart says:

    Thanks, SRAZ. You got it right again. Those who support Trump’s collusion and deference to liberals regardless of the consequences need to open their eyes to the facts. I voted to “Make America Great Again,” not to enable the left and watch our political party get flushed down the sewer we were promised would be drained.

  11. greenvalleygal says:

    Our party, our party, our party. What happened to We the People?

  12. jojo says:

    I’m with you gvgal. To hell with both parties. How about us little adorable deplorables that are tired of big $$$ donors pulling all the strings. POTUS just keeps upsetting the swamp. I say keep it up and maybe ALL the creatures will retire or be retired in the primary. GO KELLI!

  13. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Lou Dobbs nails it!

  14. Saguaro Sam says:

    And now, Janet Napolitano has gotten So Upset about the repeal (maybe) of DACA that she has filed a lawsuit.

    Too bad, that when she was AZ AG and then AZ Gov. she didn’t do anything to help legal citizens of AZ. (But she did hire several hundred lawyers to work on the civil side of the house, supposedly to “save the children”.——And yes it was several hundred.)

  15. Hunter says:

    Donald Trump is not a Republican and not a Conservative. He never really was except in name only. Anyone claiming to be a conservative who supported Trump in the primary gave us this very predictable result. Republican Congressional leadership is horrible, but Trump’s leadership is also horrible. If Trump actually supported conservative positions and showed some leadership, the deficiencies of Ryan and McConnell might have been overcome to get a real repeal of Obamacare. However, Trump himself did not want to repeal Obamacare. Trump apparently doesn’t want to solve the illegal alien problem either.

    If Cruz had been nominated and elected, we would have a real conservative pushing and enacting actual conservative policies. Cruz would have been actually draining the swamp instead of just giving us empty Trump talk. For those Trumpbots saying that Cruz is a puppet of Goldman Sachs or some other ridiculous put downs, look at your boy and eat crow.

    • VINOAZ says:

      I like Ted a lot. Doubt he would have beaten the criminal Clinton. Had he been elected I doubt he would have the limited success of Trump. The swamp would fight him just as hard or harder. Trump is not a true conservative. Neither are most Republicans in congress or in AZ “leadership”. Obama was able to break the law and subvert the constitution by going around congress. No white person or Republican could get away with that.

      • Hunter says:

        The mainstream media pushed Trump because they thought he was the only Republican who would lose to Clinton. Cruz would have made a cogent case against Clinton that would have been difficult for even the leftists in the media to paper over. Cruz would have had a solidly conservative policy agenda had he been elected President. He would have drained the swamp instead of try to get Democrats to love him. Do you think Cruz would have allowed any appropriation to pass without a simple repeal of Obamacare being passed first? He would not have been afraid to shut down the government like our current excuse for a President is.

    After seven years of solemn assurances, it couldn’t even get its act together and keep its promise to put a stake through the heart of the abomination that is Obamacare. But hey – when Donald Trump kept his promise to undo DACA, that sure spurred the True Conservatives to action.

    • Hunter says:

      Trump is doing practically nothing about DACA just like he is doing practically nothing about not having transgender people serve in the military or reducing the national debt. Trump is either a demagogue or a moron or maybe both. He tweets and talks a lot of conservative positions, but he either changes his mind, lets his subordinates subvert his orders, or just doesn’t follow through. Trump is the Disaster in Chief (DIC) as far as conservatives are concerned.

  17. jojo says:

    Good post GVGal. Conservatives (I use the word losely) are turning out to be nothing but big blathering hypocrites.

  18. VINOAZ says:

    Are you listening to Mitch? We expect too much! Is Paul doing anything? Did you here what Bannon had to say about the Republicans blocking the Trump agenda? We have met the enemy and they are Republicans.
