Schumer, Democrats: "No Wall"

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told NBC Sunday President Trump is "not going to get a wall."

Elections have consequences.

This is one of them. Voters gave the House of Representatives to the Democrats in our election last month.

President Trump says he will not sign a budget bill unless it includes $5 billion for a wall, the Democrats refuse.

Sadly, progressives hate Trump more than they love America.

And they are acting under the guise of "doing the Lord's work."

Be informed.

The Washington Times says, "The two sides showed no sign of willingness to compromise Sunday, with just hours left to broker an agreement before the federal government partially shuts down."

Schumer said Republicans in Congress "have 'to have the guts' to tell the president he's wrong for refusing to fund government unless he gets $5 billion for his border wall."

He said, "We should not let a temper tantrum---threats---push us in a direction of doing something even our Republican colleagues know is wrong."

Not everyone thinks it's "wrong" to partially shut down the government, if needed, for the sake of our national sovereignty ---and that's what is at stake on our southern border.

White House adviser Stephen Miller told the press, Mr Trump will do "whatever is necessary" to get the money to build the border wall.

He said, "They can either choose to fight for Americans---working class---or promote illegal immigration. You can't do both."

In the White House meeting with Schumer and Pelosi last week, President Trump said if necessary, "I am proud to shut down the government for border security."

This is a political issue.

Schumer and others are predicting that President Trump will pay politically if he refuses to sign the Democrat-sponsored funding bill by the Friday night deadline.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, a Maryland Democrat, says voters want the government to help them, not hurt them, suggesting a shut down will politically damage Republicans.

When I heard Cummings say, "Americans want government to help them, not hurt them," I was reminded of the words of President Reagan.

Reagan famously said,
"The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government, and I'm here to help'."

This is a moral issue.

Angel Moms, whose children have been murdered by illegal aliens living in the US, called out incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Schumer yesterday, asking them if they would support a border wall if it meant their loved ones would be saved from illegal alien crime.

Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza from Arizona---the co-founder of Angel Moms organization---singled out Pelosi, noting that as House Minority Leader she has never met with Angel Families to discuss the illegal immigration crises.

Mendoza said:
After watching the debacle in the White House the other day, I was very ashamed to even think that Nancy Pelosi would be Speaker of the House, to think that Chuck Schumer is a Senator in the United States.
And the thing that really bothers me about Nancy Pelosi is she goes on and on and on about the cost of the wall, but what Nancy Pelosi fails to talk about is the cost of supporting illegal aliens in our country, which is already at $136 billion and by not building the wall, that number will keep increasing every single year. So she’s failing to tell the American taxpayers, ‘Hey, follow my lead and more money is going to be coming out of your pockets,’ instead of building a wall for a flat fee and be done with it. 
The other thing that Nancy Pelosi fails to ever talk about, ever, is the victims of illegal alien crime. Those are our children amongst hundreds of thousands of others. Unfortunately, our children have been murdered or killed. [Emphasis added]

Mendoza’s son, 32-year-old police officer Brandon Mendoza, was killed by a drunk illegal alien who was driving the wrong way down a highway in Mesa, Arizona.

“We are fighting so that no other American family has to feel the pain and the grief that we do. We’re tired of being ignored by politicians in D.C.,” Mendoza continued. “No Democratic politician will ever meet with us, will never meet with us … because they can’t face us.”

The link above to this story includes several other stories of parents who have lost their children to violence by illegals.

Less than 2 weeks ago, Tucker Carlson on Fox News noted the irony and hypocrisy in what Nancy Pelosi is saying about the morality of a wall on our border.

He played a video clip with Pelosi saying, "No chance, walls don't work...and more than that they are morally wrong. Morally wrong."

In a following clip, Carlson played another recent clip with Pelosi saying, "Most of us, speaking for myself, consider the wall immoral, ineffective."

Carlson then aired a clip of then-Senator Barack Obama supporting a bill that would "authorize some badly needed funding for better fences and better security along our borders."

Are fences moral, but walls are not?

Carlson noted that Israel's wall is very effective and not surprising---Pelosi supported that wall from the UN when they condemned it.

He then asked, "What about doors? And locks? How about hedges or security systems or airport checkpoints or anything else that's specifically designed to keep people out of something? What about the gate in front of Pelosi's weekend house?"

This is a Scriptural and doctrinal issue.

Yesterday, Jim Wallis founder of the religious Left Sojourners organization, published a public appeal for Christians to contact Congress and urge them to not fund Trump's wall, but to "secure funding for compassionate, humane alternatives to immigration detention."

And Wallis writes, "As Christians prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, we are mindful of the thousands of migrant families who have left their homes behind in search of safety, just as Mary and Joseph did."

That is not a true statement. It's misleading and does not square up with Scripture.

This statement is usually supported in the minds of the religious Left with Scriptures from Matthew 25: 25-36, and Leviticus 19: 33-34.

The truth of Romans 13: 1-7 is then ignored or twisted to support religious Leftist ideology. And their anti-border, big government beliefs.

No, Jesus, Mary and Joseph were not refugees. Neither were they migrants.

Today on our live radio program I will be explaining from Scripture why Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus were not migrants. Join me live from anywhere in the world at 9 AM PST. Here's how.
