Chuck Schumer Waves White Flag in Border Wall “Meme Wars”

Chuck Schumer really doesn’t get it, does he?

Chuck Schumer

As the world around our federal government changes, we are often saddled with older and more traditional politicians who don’t quite mesh with the average demographic of the American people.

On the left side of the aisle, that’s more true than ever these days as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer begin their congressional reigns again in 2019.

Pelosi, who is famous for her either real or imagined senility, has been caught on camera mumbling, misspeaking, and completely botching her own message in innumerable now-viral videos.  Her speaking issues have been so bad as of late that her own daughter appeared on television recently to shore up support for the again House Speaker.

Now, Chuck Schumer is demonstrating just how far out of touch he is as well, displaying his dismay at the current state of affairs on the internet.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) did not see the humor in the Game of Thrones memes President Donald Trump used to announce his plans to build a wall along the U.S. southern border, telling him he had “enough.”

“Enough with the memes,” the New York Democrat senator tweeted in response to Trump’s wall meme. “Just quit hurting innocent people and re-open the government.”

Trump shared a Game of Thrones-style image on his social media accounts Thursday, announcing his intention to build the border wall despite opposition from Democrats.

The image featured a picture of the president with the phrase “The Wall is Coming,” in homage to the Game of Thrones TV show’s slogan “Winter is Coming.”

The bottom of the image depicted the president’s ideal “steel slats” barrier for the proposed wall along the U.S. southern border.

Of course, what Chuck is really saying is that he’d rather not see how We The People truly feel.

It’s obvious that Donald Trump isn’t creating these images himself, rather, he is cultivating them from the plethora of border wall supporters around the nation.  Schumer’s inability, (or unwillingness), to recognize that his party is out of sync with the American public is what we’ve had enough of.

Allen West Sees Issue of Sovereignty in Biden Border Bungle

He’s not wrong!

As soon as Joe Biden was announced as the next President of these United States, migrants began working their way toward the US in droves. Democrats have long been seen as a more lenient bunch when it comes to immigration, and the Biden administration was thought to be a golden window of opportunity for many who had felt otherwise during Donald Trump’s reign. But the impact of this perception of the federal government is having major ramifications at the state level, and local lawmakers are not happy about it. Lt. Col. Allen West praised Gov. Greg Abbott on “Fox & Friends,” Thursday, for recognizing the border crisis in Texas and discussing plans to build a wall. The Texas GOP chairman said that, along with border construction, an increased presence of National Guard troops is essential for blocking cartel activity and drugs from coming into the U.S. ALLEN WEST: “I’m glad that the governor has finally realized that we do have an incredible crisis at the border. It’s been about six months and there have been a lot of Texans that have been suffering under this scourge of illegal immigration coming across. But building a border wall is just part of what needs to happen. We need to have a full mobilization of our National Guard, Texas National Guard down along that border so that they can secure these infiltration routes and they can enter the crossings that we see coming from these cartels and the flow of drugs and persons as well.” And then. “I think one of the important things we have to do going forward is to look at the system that is allowing this illegal immigration to happen, especially the use of the cartels. But also we’ve got to understand the constitutional crisis of having a federal…

Florida Governor Makes Good on Promise to Pardon COVID ‘Criminals’

There is justice in The Sunshine State.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has made it very, very clear that The Sunshine State is not, and was not ever, in favor of curbing Americans’ freedoms on account of the coronavirus pandemic. Sure, there were some locales, (like Miami), who imposed curfews and other measures meant to crack down on some of the over partying during Spring Break, but even those moves were given the side-eye by DeSantis. Now the Florida leader is taking this sentiment a step farther. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and the state’s Clemency Board granted pardons Wednesday for Floridians with lingering fines issued for violating mask mandates implemented by local governments. “This action is necessary so that we can recover, have a good transition to normal operations, and also just a recognition that a lot of this stuff was way, way overboard,” DeSantis said. Democratic candidate for governor Nikki Fried was the only member on the board to oppose the pardons, according to local news outlet Fox 13. “I voted today to uphold our laws, while our so-called pro-law enforcement governor is actively encouraging people to break the law with politically motivated stunts like this,” Fried said in a statement following a Wednesday clemency board meeting. DeSantis is widely believed to have grander political aspirations, and this high-profile declaration of liberty is undoubtedly going to benefit his PR strategy as well.
