White House: Democrats refuse to negotiate
as Congress ensures shutdown will last into 2019
by Stephen Dinan 
{washingtontimes.com} ~ The House and Senate returned to Washington Thursday but quickly gaveled out of session for the rest of the week... ensuring the partial government shutdown will extend into next week — and likely into the new year. The White House said it’s trying to solve the shutdown but it can’t even find a negotiating partner among Democrats, with its latest offer, made over the weekend, not even earning a response from the minority party. “The president and his team stayed in Washington over Christmas hoping to negotiate a deal that would stop the dangerous crisis on the border, protect American communities, and reopen the government. The Democrats decided to go home,” said press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Democrats have shown little interest in negotiations, figuring President Trump will shoulder the blame for a shutdown and the need only wait him out. They’re also eager to take control of the House, which they figure will give them more options in the new Congress that begins Jan. 3. Some Democrats did attempt Thursday to try to force action on a stopgap spending bill that ignores Mr. Trump’s demand for additional wall money. Rep. James McGovern, Massachusetts Democrat, tried to gain recognition on the House floor to pass a bill continuing the 2018 spending levels into early 2019. But Rep. Luke Messer, the Republican acting as speaker, quickly gaveled the House session closed, cutting off any chance for Democratic maneuvers...

scumbag/clown-Schumer Admits Border Fence Makes
Border 'Far More Secure' In Resurfaced Video
by RYAN SAAVEDRA  
{dailywire.com} ~ Senate Minority Leader Chuck scumbag/clown-Schumer (D-NY) said in 2009 that construction of hundreds of miles of fencing along the southern border made the border "far more secure"... because it created a "significant barrier to illegal immigration."  scumbag/clown-Schumer made the remarks while addressing the 6th Annual Immigration Law and Policy Conference at Georgetown University about the seven principles he said were the basis of an immigration reform package that he wanted to pass. "The first of these seven principles is that illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple,"  scumbag/clown-Schumer said. "When we use phrases like 'undocumented workers,' we convey a message to the American people that their government is not serious about combating illegal immigration, which the American people overwhelmingly oppose.""People who enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens, and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the United States legally," scumbag/clown-Schumer continued. "Any immigration solution must recognize that we must do as much as we can to gain operational control of our borders as soon as possible." scumbag/clown-Schumer then explained that the construction of border barriers along the southern border made the border a safer place as it made it much tougher for migrants to illegally enter the U.S. ...Why did he change, hatred for Trump.  https://www.dailywire.com/news/39737/watch-schumer-admits-border-fe...

Shutdown talks dead since Saturday 
after Democrats rejected White House proposal
by Keith Koffler
{washingtonexaminer.com} ~ Efforts to resolve a government shutdown fight have been at a standstill since Saturday, when Democrats rejected a White House proposal that reduced President Trump's $5 billion demand for a border wall... and offered flexibility on just how solid the wall needed to be. According to a senior White House official, White House negotiators led by Vice President Mike Pence and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner huddled with Democrats on Capitol Hill Saturday and proposed between $1.6 billion and $5 billion in funds for a "physical barrier" that would include "fencing, a wall, and steel slats." This, the official acknowledged, meant not all the funding would have to be used for a "wall." Democrats, led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck scumbag/clown-Schumer, D-N.Y., walked away and basically haven't been heard from since, according to the White House. "There's been dead silence," the senior official said. "scumbag/clown-Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pulosi are meeting with themselves, refusing to meet with Republicans on the offer made last Saturday." According to a House Democratic leadership aide, the offer the White House made was for $2.5 billion. Of the total, $2.1 billion would be used for what the aide termed "elements of border security," while $400 million would be devoted to what Democrats are calling a "slush fund" allocated to what they say are undefined "Trump immigration priorities." scumbag/clown-Schumer emphatically rejected the offer, the aide said... Yet, the dems are willing to give billions on other issues and countries but not us - why?

Parkland Father Calls Out Pulosi for Fighting 
Trump’s Efforts to Protect Teachers, Students
by Awe Hankins
{breitbart.com} ~ Parkland father Andrew Pollack is calling out House Minority Leader Nancy Pulosi (D-CA) for her fight against President Donald Trump’s efforts to protect teachers, students... Pollack lost his daughter, Meadow, in the February 14, 2018, attack. Trump’s School Safety Commission, headed by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, submitted a report that presented numerous steps that could be taken to heighten school safety. One of those was doing away with an scumbag/liar-nObama administration rule that let kids prone to crime and/or dangerous behavior slip through the cracks. Another step was to add more armed personnel on campus, particularly veterans and/or police. And Trump himself  continued to push for armed teachers, as he has done since day one following the attack. IJR reports that Pulosi responded by describing the report as an attempt “to roll back students’ civil rights and fill our classrooms with deadly firearms.” She continued, “Not only are Republicans ignoring proven research and dismantling vital student anti-discrimination protections, they have blocked commonsense gun violence prevention measures and underfunded effective school climate practices, anti-bullying initiatives, after-school programs and school counselor supports.”...  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2018/12/26/parkland-father-calls...

The Other Intersectionality: Victims of Islamism
by Kenneth Levin
{gatestoneinstitute.org} ~ The term "intersectionality" was coined by an African-American academic, Kimberlé Crenshaw, in 1989 to denote the circumstance of being the target of more than one bias... Crenshaw saw herself as the potential victim of both anti-black racism and misogyny, thereby living at the intersection of the two bigotries. In recent years, the term has gained prominence on many of the nation's campuses to signify something else: the supposed shared, "intersecting," predicaments of racial and ethnic groups -- as well as women and sexual minorities -- victimized by white male racism and its history of imperialism, colonialism, exploitation and slavery. While one can fully acknowledge the depredations of European imperialism and its exploitation of non-European populations, one can also debate the extent of its current impact on non-European populations, women and sexual minorities. Except that one cannot debate it: In much of Western, including American, academia today, such debate is not permitted. Similarly censored from today's campuses is discussion of another, in various respects competing, intersectionality: That of the shared, intersecting, predicaments of today's victims of Islamist aggression, including terrorism. Those victims are mainly people of color -- black Africans, Arabs, Kurds, Pakistanis, Afghans and east Asians -- but also many whites. They are mainly Muslims, but also include Christians, Jews, Yazidis, Druze and people professing no religion. Why should these two intersectionalities, despite their different focuses on perpetrators and victims, be competing? Because allies of the Islamist assault have played a prominent part in promoting the campus version of intersectionality...  https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/13456/intersectionality-islamism

Disintegrating Families, Disintegrating Culture
by Arnold Ahlert:   The root of our cultural rot can be traced back to one place: the shift away from nuclear families.

             In recent columns, this writer has sought to address the root causes of the nation’s increasing polarization. One of the foremost of those is an education system that turns out generations of weak-thinking Americans whose command of the nation’s founding documents, civic structures, and historical foundations is virtually nonexistent — even as those same Americans are well-schooled in the nation’s shortcomings. If this effort is allowed to continue, our status as a constitutional republic and what is often referred to as the world’s “last best hope for mankind” is seriously threatened. Nationally televised congressional hearings would be a great way to begin shedding light on a contemptible dynamic that can no longer be blamed on incompetence.
               It is nothing less than a concerted and coordinated effort to “fundamentally transform” the nation, and it must be exposed.
               Yet there can be no mistaking the reality that the devolution of our education system has root causes as well. The failure factories otherwise known as public schools created — and nurtured — by the Democrat Education Complex are far easier to maintain in a disintegrating culture. There is a level of legitimacy in the all-too-familiar teachers’ lament that some children are “unteachable,” and that assertion is almost invariably accompanied by the reason for it: Most of these children live in circumstances that could be charitably described as “chaotic” at best — and wholly removed from anything resembling civilized norms at worst.
               How did we get to that place? Before the emergence of LBJ’s Great Society, Aid to Families with Dependent Children  (AFDC) was reserved for widows, as a means of funding once-married women who had lost the primary male supporter of the family. In the 1960s, Johnson and Congress changed the qualifications: Any household where there was no male family head present became eligible for taxpayer subsidies.
               The late Patrick Moynihan predicted the calamity that would follow, especially among blacks, where the out-of-wedlock birth rate has now reached 77%, and single-parent families are mostly headed by women. Moynihan was criticized for being racist, and for assuming middle class values “are the correct values for everyone in America,” as civil rights leader Floyd McKissick asserted at the time...

ALERT ALERT

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
