“We have a story to tell and yet, great goals to achieve”

The virtual absence of any mention of Nancy Pelosi’s sudden decision to allow the State of the Union address to go ahead, as if this were always on the cards, astonishes me. The notion that PDT gave it all away with nothing in it for himself, turns out to be untrue. It may actually be that it was the Dems who will turn out to have given the game away since not so surprisingly, PDT has won the public relations battle, and may yet win the rest as uphill a battle as it may look: Pelosi Suffers MASSIVE Backlash Over Shutdown As She Watches Her Popularity Plummet, which adds this detail:

Also pressure on Pelosi and the Democrats is building as the United States Border Patrol just released the latest apprehension data at our southern border deflating their narrative:

Today, United States Customs and Border Protection released new information regarding the number of family units apprehended along the southwest border and the demographics of large groups apprehended in recent months by the United States Border Patrol (USBP).

As of today, USBP has seen a surge in Family Unit Aliens compared to the same time from last fiscal year by 280%. Fiscal Year 2018 was a record year and this year will surpass that if the current trend continues without any legislative fixes. Overall apprehensions between the POE’s are up 81%.

APPREHENSIONS

Over the past few months (FY19 to date), USBP has seen a dramatic increase in the number of large groups of 100 illegal aliens or more being apprehended along the southern border.

In the El Paso, Rio Grande Valley, Tucson, and Yuma Sectors over the last four months, smugglers and traffickers have delivered 53 large groups, totaling 8,797 illegal aliens.

This should also be at the core of the Australian election. We have effectively stopped the boats, but you may be sure whatever success we have had up till now will disappear the day the election ends in a Labor government.

    The criminal cartels stopped the boats, but were granted the concessions to fly people in on visa rorts.

    Two million people flown in on visas is a lot more than tens of thousands on boats.

    Now shorten will branch stack the appeals board that can halt those with expired visas being flown out, and grant full residency, and expanded family reunion and marriage reunion rights.

    Comrade voter Maaaaates.

    why do you need smugglers if there is free entry ?
    you need smugglers only if there is no free entry

    Its good to see the decromats working assiduously to allow anyone to enter the USA ,and making it easier for the Mexican Cartels to keep supplying their voteherd . This policy will be very popular with the comrades in Hollywood wher people pretend to be other people so much they dont know who they are anymore . Pelosi is the perfect modern Californian ,thick as a load of planks and totally up herself .

    What did he get exactly, that he didn’t have before the shut down?

    Absolutely. I watch three news services in the evening, check a few more online and listen to one in the morning and this post is the first I’ve heard about it.

    Publicity of the issue and a significant lowering of Pelosi approval.

    But it’s all in a state of flux so I suspect the real winner(s) won’t be revealed for a couple of weeks or so yet.

    Publicity of the issue and a significant lowering of Pelosi approval.

    His own approvals went even lower, including amongst his base. And he’s the one needing to get re-relected, not Pelosi.

    And the publicity of the issue isn’t really an outcome. It’s been well ventilated before. People already have a view, for or against. I don’t think this changed anyone’s views.

    And he’s the one needing to get re-relected, not Pelosi.
    Isn’t there an HoR election in 2020?

    If the Libs want to start winning the war and election they should:
    Take out full page ads with photos of all Labor pro immigration (weaken border protection) members then have their quotes underneath. Any Labor candidates can be added, with similar views then ask the Australian public if wee Billy will be able to hold the party room from weakening Australia’s borders. When he claims Labor is strong on borders then start quoting Rudd lies often and very loud.
    The crap argument that more come by visa overstay is spurious because the border force have their details and can be tracked down and exported.

  11. One big reason Pelosi didn’t want the SoTU is that she has to sit behind The President whilst he’s making his speech, in full view of the cameras…for the entire length of the speech…

    Just go look at the videos of her face through the last SoTU address.

    This is going to be epic.

    One big reason Pelosi didn’t want the SoTU is that she has to sit behind The President whilst he’s making his speech, in full view of the cameras…for the entire length of the speech…

    There’s been no suggestion that Pelosi wanted to cancel the SoTU. She advised it would be delayed until the government re-opened. Which it now has. Not sure why this is a surprise?

  13. John Constantine

    Visa overstays with the right contacts can appeal for a stay of getting tossed out.

    Once shorten branch stacks the appeals board with get up wymynsys social activists, it is as good as open slather.

    Comrades.
