The leak of a new EU position paper highlighted the uphill struggle we still have before us as Brexit negotiations move onto phase two, with Eurocrats eager to manufacture a deal that leaves freedom of movement in place until the end of a supposed transition deal, now likely to extend beyond December 2020 as originally promised.
It’s official. Last night Chuck Schumer and the Democrats shut the government down in an effort to give amnesty to illegal immigrants. They have once again proven that they are not willing to put the interests of the American people first. This is just plain wrong.
In recent days one would be forgiven for feeling a little nauseous. French President Emmanuel Macron’s first visit to the United Kingdom since his election victory in April last year has certainly been a headline grabber – and the latest ‘selfie’ is quite sickening. It’s surprising Macron spent 26,000 Euros in 3 months on make-up, although frankly we couldn’t see much evidence of this doing much for him yesterday!
Democrats continue to threaten to shut down the government if lawmakers don’t come to an agreement on the Obama-era policy of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). One of President Trump’s campaign promises was to crack down on illegal immigration and succumbing to a deal that gives benefits to illegal immigrants without getting serious border security provisions and other critical reforms to fight illegal immigration would be a big mistake for the new administration and bad for the country.
Protests against the Iranian government as a result of economic woes continued this week and could pose as a good opportunity for America’s international policy with the nation. President Trump has said numerous times that the controversial Iran Nuclear Deal is fundamentally flawed and has stated that he wants to get rid of it once and for all. However, the president today extended waivers from sanctions for Iran, but made assurances that this will be the final time, ultimately setting a deadline. We hope the president will end this awful deal when these extensions run out.
