Stonewalling the Wall

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 1, 2019

         THE HATRED AMONG MOST DEMOCRATS FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SO STRONG I DOUBT THERE WILL BE AN AGREEMENT ON FUNDING FOR A BORDER WALL. YES, THE BIPARTISAN GROUP TASKED WITH ARRIVING AT A MUTUAL AGREEMENT IS MAKING THE RIGHT SOUNDS, BUT THE DEMOCRAT LEADERSHIP IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE WILL LIKELY HEAR NONE OF IT AND COME UP WITH AN EXCUSE NOT TO AGREE TO ANYTHING.

         THEY WANT ANOTHER GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN BECAUSE POLLS SHOW REPUBLICANS AND TRUMP MOSTLY WERE BLAMED FOR THE LAST ONE. POLITICS IS ALL THEY CARE ABOUT – AND DESTROYING THE PRESIDENT – NOT THE COUNTRY, OR ITS INTERESTS. I HATE TO PUT IT THAT WAY, BUT HOW ELSE WOULD YOU PUT IT? OUR SOUTHERN BORDER IS NOT BEING PROTECTED. AGENTS WANT A WALL AND WHO KNOWS BETTER THAN THEY DO WHAT WILL WORK?

         I HOPE THE PRESIDENT PUTS SOME OF THOSE AGENTS IN THE BALCONY DURING HIS STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS NEXT WEEK, AS WELL AS PEOPLE WHOSE RELATIVES WERE MURDERED BY ILLEGALS CROSSING THE BORDER. THAT MAY NOT MOVE THE LIKES OF NANCY PELOSI AND CHUCK SCHUMER, BUT IT MIGHT MOVE THE COUNTRY TO PRESSURE THEM TO VOTE FOR A WALL OR BARRIER THAT WORKS. I’M CAL THOMAS.
