Amnesty Don Strikes

Mere days ago, Breitbart’s Steve Bannon told “60 Minutes” that “our purpose is to support Donald Trump.” Then, on Wednesday, Trump decided to make an immigration deal with Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi over Chinese food. Within minutes, Breitbart was dubbing the president it had pledged to support “Amnesty Don.”

For Breitbart, accusing someone of supporting “Amnesty” is tantamount to calling him a child molester, so negative is its understanding of the word. That is why a White House spokesman declared afterward that Trump “will not be discussing amnesty.” But in the next sentence, the spokesman said Trump would consider “legal citizenship over a period of time.”

That, my friends, is the very definition of amnesty, pure and simple. Forget his Orwellian newspeak: The Trump spokesman was acknowledging his boss had agreed to follow the provisions of the so-called DREAM Act, which would provide a path to citizenship for 800,000 people.

Nothing else Trump does or says much matters in light of this, he betrayed his supporters and as result will be a 1 term president, though I suspect that’s what he wanted. Don’t expect that “The Wall ” will be built, he won’t receive support from any quarter thanks to the DACA deal since he’s likely harmed Republican election chances. People will stay home in disgust on election day or worse vote Democrat thanks to this “deal”.

    If only Hillary had won all would be sweetness and light.

    • Yea, at least we could enjoy hating her. I take no pleasure in voicing my disgust with Trumps turncoat behavior.

      • Yeah, me neither. No pleasure.
        However, let us not rush to judgment. He may turn back to the True North as quickly as he turned away from it.

        • Possibly.

          I suspect a measure of media disinformation is at work here.

            His tweets are troubling.

      • Malcolm Y

        Yeah, this is really discouraging. We have to keep going; keep fighting; putting on the pressure; showing we are a force to be reckoned with.
        Maybe the 180 grains 2k fps solution someday.

  • Dana Garcia

    Amnesty and open borders are the nation killers.

    For example. California has become totally transformed since it became Mexicanized over a few decades– totally Democrat run, diversity uber alles and big welfare. Typically, the Oroville dam nearly collapsed last winter because the state is not interested in infrastructure upkeep.

    • I was stunned by this announcement, he is dead to me unless rescinded.

      • Dana Garcia

        Me too, except I was a tiny bit forewarned by Trump talk of “great kids” and his addition of several thousand to the DACA program after Jan 20.

        Maybe Ann Coulter’s next book will be “Never Trust a Former Democrat.”

        • Alain

          It isn’t just the Democrats or former Democrats who are the problem, it is also the Republicans/GOP. Now they have a majority and ball is in their court, and they refuse to pass anything that would end the illegal issue. I am not excusing Trump at all, but the Establishment does not want to solve the problem.

      • DaninVan

        Well, I don’t get a vote, but those that do, and DID support his platform…
        Pence may as well just go back to doing whatever he did before climbing into Trump’s rowboat ’cause he has NO hope of moving on up.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Here’s an idea – give them ALL amnesty and make sure they are all automatically given a misdemeanor or felony conviction too. Because when you give them amnesty without a criminal charge you’re prioritizing them ABOVE every single person in America who, because they had a bogus pot bust when they were 18 and now can’t get a car loan or an apartment lease. Or for that matter ABOVE every American who’s ever been evicted and now can’t get a place to live.

  • “He has struck deals with Schumer and Pelosi” – just these two names tell the whole story, and spell the extent of the disaster in US politics that has taken place. Forgett Harvey and Irma, Schumer and Pelosi are much much worse.

  • Ego

    If Bannon were to run for President, he’d have all the support that Trump has just lost and is going to lose.
    I hope Bannon knows that despite all appearances, he is now regarded by Trump & Co. as an enemy.

    • Norman_In_New_York

      Bannon could probably carry greater influence running Breitbart.

  • Dave

    This whole debacle is starting to make me think trump is working on a north american union sort of like the eu. Look how well that’s working.
    Bastards politicians. Kill ’em all and start fresh.

    • Alain

      I don’t know if Trump is or not, but it has been clear for many years that the globalists want such a union and NAFTA was a first step.

  • Surele Surele
  • ECM

    HILARIOUS! Commentary–freaking COMMENTARY!–is complaining about amnesty! When they never saw an open southern border they didn’t like! My God, being #nevertrump means that consistency is a filthy word on par with ****!

  • Blacksmith

    Continues to make me wonder when the true revolution will start. WE supported him because he was anti establishment but it appears it was only more of the same smokescreen we have been getting for decades.
