Dem Leaders "Plan" on Puerto Rico Beach--While Thousands Miss Paychecks

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders harshly criticized Democratic lawmakers this weekend for flying to Puerto Rico for a political event and play date on the beach---with 109 lobbyists and corporate executives from R.J. Reynolds, Facebook, Comcast, Amazon, PhRMA, Microsoft, Intel, Verizon and the National Education Association.

This, while tens of thousands of federal workers missed a payday.

Oh, the hypocrisy.

Sanders Tweeted, "Democrats in Congress are so alarmed about federal workers not getting paid they're partying on the beach instead of negotiating compromise to reopen the government and secure the border."

The retreat comes, she noted, on the 24th day of the partial government shutdown.

Democratic lawmakers, like New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez pictured on the beach with his friends, hardly appears to be concerned about the less fortunate back home.

The Washington Examiner reported that the Democratic leaders were also playing with the Puerto Rican cast of "Hamilton." Yesterday, our public servants attended a performance of the play.

There are 3.6 lobbyists for every lawmaker at the retreat.

However, while her colleagues "fiddled" on the beach, Hillary was standing watch on the front lines at home.

On Saturday, she tweeted that "Americas can't afford another day" of what is now the longest running government shutdown in US history.

She warned,
"The costs are already high; People are missing paychecks, losing business, or working without pay. Our national parks are overrun with trash. The FDA and FBI warn of the harm to our food safety and national security."

I doubt that most of us really care where the progressive elite go to play---or even when. It's the hypocrisy that's bothersome.

Although Nancy Pelosi was scheduled to go on the outing, she decided against it at the last minute. Perhaps it was because she had just spent a week in Hawaii, while President Trump and staff stayed at the White House, just in case the Democrats wanted to meet.

It seems their alarm is selective. They'll be back in DC tomorrow raging over the horrible "government shutdown" and the "immoral wall."

"Crises," they will shout, "Crises."

However, Art Arthur with the Center for Immigration Studies says Democrats seem more concerned about pleasing their far-left base than improving security on the US-Mexican border. He says they also have their eye on the 2020 elections.

Arthur also says there's the issue of newly elected, far-Left Democrats, who were elected due to their vows to oppose Trump at every turn and push to impeach him.

The far-Left are mocking the president because they believe they have forced him to compromise for a "steel" wall rather than a concrete one. And they say, Mexico is not paying for it.

The looming political problem for the Left is the fact---and sometimes facts are lonely warriors, that prominent Democrats once voted for a 2006 bill that authorized miles of new fencing on the border. Now they are calling the very thing they voted for "immoral," "too expensive," and "not effective."

Arthur says this causes the president to appear more and more reasonable, while the Left appears more and more unreasonable.

He says he believes this stand-off will ultimately become a political liability for the Democrats, as it becomes a "no-lose" situation for the president and those who support him.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.

    “The Democrats Party as Rome Burns”?

    In truth, what could be more devious than forcing an opponent to harm other people by refusing to work toward a solution, then placing the blame on your opponent. Yes, devious and in truth “Evil”. Evil because there is no true compassion for those being hurt, but rather an arrogant self-serving agenda to use the pain of innocent "others" as a weapon. Evil always makes the claim that the end justifies the means, and in this case the end is also evil. Yes, evil because the end is designed to condone and encourage all those who would like to illegally invade America for either personal gain or strategic positioning. Encouraging and facilitating law breakers on both sides with an obvious and blatant disregard for the welfare of America and her citizens.

    Why all this hypocrisy and evil done in arrogant self-righteous manner?

    For power....yes, for power. The "end" is political power. Flood the nation with illegal immigrants and eventually there will be enough to guarantee that Democrats stay in control and power permanently. “Uninterrupted power at any cost”!

    A congress who voted for a wall to "look good" when they knew President Obama would never sign their legislation, then call that same wall immoral, wasteful, and unnecessary when they know it would actually happen.

    A crowing touch of be motivated by hate instead of love.

    The malice and hatred toward our President is palpable, arrogant, and proudly displayed in the face of all that is decent. A "proud" and "virulent" hatred, shouted from the rooftops without shame or any semblance of conscience or integrity. "Yes" this also conforms to the definition of evil!

    * Who made the immigration laws? That would be our congress.
    * Who are the only ones that can change the laws? That same congress.
    * Who is working diligently to encourage that those same laws be broken? Again, it is the same Congress.
    * Who encourages cities and American citizens to resist and break the laws they made and refuse to change? Yes...that same congress!

    BUT….”It’s the Presidents Fault”

    Again...this is evil!

    How is it that such a large portion of the American people can be convinced that this "evil" is both righteous and good?

    Answer: They are spiritually blind...unable to see truth because they have decided never to recognize or accept any truth they don't like. Evil taught them that they are righteous to never be accountable to any power greater than the own self desires.

    Yes...this too is evil.

    Shine the light of truth on evil in Jesus name, and it will shrink and run away.

    Can we speak these truths openly? Can we face the backlash of malicious and hurtful evil by boldly and loudly speaking truth to it?

    Or are we afraid?

    Truth is a lonely warrior...
