The Alinsky-ites Rule the Day

Voting for a government shutdown so that members of the Military and Border Patrol won’t get paid, but they will, is right out of the Alinsky playbook, to wit: ” 13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.” People, you know, like the military, the border patrol, and even the government employees who arrange for them to get their paychecks. This is Schumer-insky, Durban-insky, Booker-insky, Feinstein-insky and all the rest of them which you can see at: www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/01/19/us/politics/live-senate-vote-government-shutdown.html

You should note that they were voting on a motion to end debate allowing the measure of the continuing resolution to fund the government to come up for a vote. Why then you might ask did McConnell vote against it? Because he knew it was a trap – the motion needed 60 votes to pass and the votes, thanks to the Alinsky-ites, simply weren’t there. The continuing resolution would also need 60 vote to pass according to Senate rules.

IMO this tactic will continue as long as Members of Congress continue to get paid during budget crises such as the one confronting us now. They should feel the pain along with everyone else and then maybe, just maybe, they will do their jobs and pass appropriations to match their budget authorizations. The unfortunate truth is that our country, because of Senate rules, is in the hands of 100 men and women who may not have the welfare of the Nation at stake. Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas, save us.

  1. As i write this, Schumer is giving his opening remarks before the Senate with a huge sign in back of him saying: “Trump Shutdown.”. This, despite the fact that the President has no authority over the federal budget appropriation process and clearly because the word on the street is this is the Schumer Shutdown, concocted so that Democrats could throw one more wrench in the Trump Administration machinery. These are the Trump-haters pure and simple and they are trying to hoodwink the American people into thinking it’s all Trump’s fault. It won’t work.
