UPDATE: July 26, 2019: Democrats pass ‘Unprecedented, Wasteful, and Obscene’: House Approves $1.48 Trillion Pentagon Budget [source]
“For the love of god, can we all stop pretending like this is somehow anything other than a continued orgy of unprecedented, wasteful, and obscene spending at the Pentagon.”
Stephen Miles, Win Without War
219 House Democrats and 65 Republicans on Thursday voted to approve a budget agreement that includes $1.48 trillion in military spending over the next two years.
Just 16 Democrats—including Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.)—voted against the two-year, $2.7 trillion budget agreement. Largely due to expressed concerns about the deficit, 132 Republicans and Rep. Justin Amash (I-Mich.) also voted no.
“Proposed figures are higher than spending at the height of the Vietnam and Korean Wars, and substantially more than the high point of the Reagan buildup of the 1980s. Fiscal Year 2020 and Fiscal Year 2021 numbers are only slightly less than spending in 2010, when the United States had 180,000 troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, roughly nine times the number currently deployed.”
William Hartung, director Arms and Security Project, Center for International Policy
The sweeping 2020 budget agreement is expected to pass the Senate next week and President Trump has signaled he will sign the appropriation. Mitch McConnell joined the president celebrating the increase in military spending, which is significantly more than the Pentagon requested.
The deal “achieves the No. 1 goal of the Republican side of the aisle, providing for the common defense.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
I’m a life-long Democrat. I say enough! I’ve earned this right. My first official vote was for Jimmy Carter for president. I was in college. Spent an exciting evening at the Democratic headquarters watching results pour in. Put peanuts in front of all the doors in my wing of our dormitory — three floors. I’ve always been a bit touched. LOL
UPDATE 7.26.19: Democrats support illegal immigration. Just released:
A record 61,000 unaccompanied migrant children have surged over the U.S.-Mexico border and been handed to federal care facilities since October, and there are still over two months left in the fiscal year, according to immigration officials.

What the HELL is Wrong with the Democratic Party?
My friend Lilly Lue posted this today. I’ve been highlighting some of her social activism. AOC and People of Color apparently plan to take over our nation. Don’t give me any nonsense about racism. I’m part Black. My wife is Mexican American.
Democratic leaders want to forgive student loans — hand out $50,000 to students who were privileged to party, attend football games, kick back in the student union, and enjoy life in dorms. What about hard-working kids who went to trade schools or simply started careers. Democrats don’t offer them a down payment on a house or new car.
They don’t like White people either. White people have flaws. We all do. But let’s get real here. White Men went to the moon — 50 years ago this July 20, 2019. No other nation in the history of the world has done this. Black people did not do this. People of Color did not. White Men went to the moon.
Black people did not even free themselves from slavery. Wasn’t simply White Men enslaving them. Dark-skinned African kings sold them into slavery. Dark-skinned Egyptians, as described in the Bible, enslaved the Hebrews. Yet White Men in America ended slavery. This is our history.
Most importantly, they were Americans. These White Men who ended slavery also put the flag of the United States of America on the surface of the moon. Hand delivered.
Did you know there was one PHENOMENAL woman on that team? JoAnn Morgan, a 28-year-old instrumentation controller for the mission. She was the only woman inside the firing room where NASA employees watched Apollo 11’s historic lift off July 16, 1969.
Part of that team included Germans, Italians, French, Russians, Persians, Arabs, Greeks, Irish, Chinese, Japanese, Mexicans, Brazilians, Scandinavians, Polynesians, people from African nations, people from Latin American nations, native indigenous peoples of North America, people from all over the world … can’t list them all. Men and women. American is not a race or creed. We are a “Garden Salad” — a mix of the Best of the Best. This is America.
Modern Democrats are clear. Men are not wanted. White people are not wanted. Hispanic voters are surging. America is turning Brown. People of Color are rising.
The Democratic Party is Too Male; Too Pale; and Too Stale
Letitia “Tish” A. James
Hispanics and People of Color are fleeing their homelands. They consider these “shithole” places to live. They come to America — White Men wrote the Declaration of Independence. White Men fought the Revolutionary war — against White Men from England.
White Men defeated the Kaiser in WWI. White Men defeated Hitler. White Men have been the presidents until Barack Obama. President Obama was an awesome president. He wasn’t great because he had dark skin. He was amazing because he was smart, talented, had a phenomenal family, and found a way to become the Best He Could Be. This is America.
If Hispanics and People of Color hate White Men and America so greatly, why are you knocking down the door illegally to get in? This house was build by White Men. We don’t claim to have done this alone. We are thankful for all the help, support and teamwork from women and People of Color.
National Trend of Victimization
Barack Obama came from a broken home. He smoked pakalolo. He wasn’t a perfect human being or man. Smartest thing he did was marry Michelle.
Michelle was the strength behind President 44. We all know this. They worked as a team to produce an All-American family. He could have lived on welfare; could have blamed Whitey; could have simply blamed. They fought to be the Best They Could Be. So proud of them all.
Hispanics and People of Color say America and White Men have treated them poorly. Yet they came here seeking help. Their nations and homelands are “shitholes.” Why doesn’t Mexico fix its nation? How about Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador? Why not a 1776 Revolution there? Form a new nation for your people. Seems the Lucky 1% want simply to get out and strand everyone else in a hellhole.
The first White Men who came here fled “shithole” places. They encountered native tribes. For the most part, native people lived in teepees or non-permanent housing. Didn’t have books. Hadn’t invented metals, such as iron or steel. Didn’t know of gunpowder. Didn’t have modern medicine.
Most native people died from diseases brought here by the new people. Nobody’s fault. Nature beats us all in the end. Eventually native tribes would have encountered people from other lands. Soon they would have been exposed to flu, polio, measles and mumps, etc. European culture advanced more quickly technologically.
Doesn’t mean better. You decide. Want to live in a teepee or do you prefer modern life with your smartphone and air-conditioned grocery stores?
Democrats Encourage Our Borders to be Overrun
My friend from Idaho, Michael Jackson, had this post on his social media today.
Responded to him, “I respect your compassion. Here’s the reality:
During the month of June, Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol agents apprehended 43,197 migrants — an average of 1,440 per day — according to the most recent Southwest Border Migration Report released Wednesday by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Of those, agents identified 30,165 as Family Unit Aliens, 3,903 as Unaccompanied Alien Children and 9,129 as single adults.
Where would YOU put them? We don’t have facilities for 1,500 new people per day.
Some 43,197 migrants: this is a NEW Pocatello each month!
And, this is the number they apprehended. Many, many more are coming in.”
Crocodile Tears and a Better Life
In Hawai’i news, Senator Mazie Hirono burst into tears describing condition for children at the U.S. border with Mexico. What about the keiki struggling here on island? Where does Mazie suggest we put thousands of new people per day?
“If you didn’t feel shame, pain. If you weren’t appalled by these pictures then something is dead or dying in your hearts and in the heart of America.”
Senator Mazie Hirono
Mazie was at a press conference to support the Stop Cruelty to Migrant Children Act. They want an end to family separations with certain exceptions, set minimum health and safety standards for children and families in Border Patrol Stations, and ensure children have legal representation, among other protections. Great. Who pays?
“How can we call ourselves a nation that calls out to people like me to come to our country to seek a better life. How can we call ourselves a beacon of hope and freedom and countenance these kinds of conditions in our facilities.”
Senator Mazie Hirono
Correct. Mazie and Democrats are calling out to people to come to our country to seek a better life. Whoa! Pump your brakes there, sista! Most Americans are screaming for a better life.
Mazie cries for people flooding our borders illegally. Yet millions in America are homeless or one paycheck from the street. Democrats want more money so children from other nations can have attorneys. American children would like something to eat.
What the HELL is Wrong with the Democratic Party?
President Trump defended U.S. action at facilities and said Democrats were exaggerating the situation.
“Many of these illegals aliens are living far better now than where they came from, and in far safer conditions. No matter how good things actually look, even if perfect, the Democrat visitors will act shocked & aghast at how terrible things are.”
President Donald Trump
Mazie was born in Japan. She immigrated to America with her mother and brother at the age of seven. I’m the grandson of an immigrant family. Most of us immigrated.
“I just want to say to all of you and the American people: We better look to our hearts because if we do not then we are doing so much damage to our country that it will be hard for us to recover.”
Senator Mazie Hirono
I agree with Senator Hirono. We are doing much damage to our country. We need to fix our school system. Need to fix our economic system. Need to fix our environment. Need to fix our healthcare system. Need to fix our infrastructure system. Need to strengthen Middle Class families.
We are not short on labor. We need to work with the UN, international groups, and fix the “shithole” nations of the world. These suffering people need our help; they deserve our help. Americans are willing to help. We can’t encourage 50,000+ illegal aliens to flood our borders each month. This is not a political or humane solution.

Using faulty logic that both parties sometimes peddle in pushes people away. I personally know you are too smart to fall for these lies if you were to stop for a moment to think on it yourself.
The question you might ask yourself is how every prior president (of both parties) has dealt with these situations, and why they didn’t have massive overcrowding and so many separated families. Obama was known as the deporter in chief, and didn’t lack the compassion that we’re seeing today.
The difference is simple: asylum seekers were not put into prison until now. Reversing that ill fated decision would immediately eliminate the problem. Though it won’t immediately restore our bad name in the eyes of the world. That will take time.
Now if the president actually wanted to solve the immigration problem, there are at least a couple obvious solutions.
First, he could sign an executive order that would enforce civil and/or criminal penalties for the law already on the books against hiring illegal aliens. If they can’t get work, 99% of them will have to leave the US immediately. Now why won’t he take that obvious step? 1. Because he personally needs them, and 2. because farmers need them. The second problem is easy enough to take care of: allow seasonal visas. But there isn’t any way around problem 1. But the biggest reason he won’t do it is because his power comes through fear. He does not want to solve the problem, as then how could he scare us about the bad brown menace?
Second, he could assign tons of temporary judges to process the immigrants quickly. Let’s say 5% of the asylum seekers gain entry. That means 95% of them are gone almost immediately, and the others have the right to be in the country, so they no longer need to be caged. If you have to walk for 3 months across rough terrain, are you going to do it if you expect you are going to be returned almost immediately? Not many would.
But long story short, “Mazie cries for people flooding our borders illegally”, is a lie that Trump and his ilk shout every chance they get. And it’s been proven that if you hear something often enough, and stop evaluating it, you begin to believe the lie yourself. But you are better than that. I have not heard of a single person, republican/democrat/independent that is for open borders. Not one single person.
The difference between Trump and his worshippers, and everybody else in the world, is how you treat people. Do you treat them like dogs/sub-humans or do you treat them like people?
Please don’t get sucked in by lies, especially ones that are so blatant that people lose trust in your message.
@brian777 — you added many reasoned comments. Appreciate hearing from you. Thank you!
HELL is exactly what is wrong with the Democrats, slavery in America, the KKK in 19th, 20th centuries, denying civil rights to blacks in 1960s, two world wars and two police actions due Rothschild wanting to control economy, permitting European, Vatican plots to kill seven (plus) American presidents, encouraging abortion in America, also to bring God’s wrath upon us all with LGBQT evil, killing children for adrenochrome drinking. The Almighty defines right from wrong ALL the democrats do will send them to HELL, unless they repent. ALL of America’s gross sins are upon DEMOCRATS.
Aloha Dennis, many excellent points and thank you for adding to the discussion. Ultimately, we must find a way to “reach across the isle” with each other and get something done. Any suggestions how to do this?
