I have long had the Fox news app on my smartphone along with americaoutloud.com and the weather app, as trusted news sources. While Fox news has apparently become another anti-Trump, anti-conservative shadow of the enemy, I enjoyed the Brian Kilmeade radio show until he interviewed Geraldo Rivera yesterday (20Nov20).
Now, I have long considered Fox’s Geraldo to be an egotistical dufus, a self-absorbed idiot who promotes his own importance and is willing to betray anybody to make a news exclusive like he did to the US Army in Iraqi when, after he was allowed to attend a briefing of a battalion attack plan to Company troop commanders, he immediately set about revealing it to his TV viewing audience. The Army loaded his stuff on a helicopter and made him ‘persona non grata’ and threw butt out of theater. Not good for ones ego!
On the Kilmeade show Geraldo couldn’t wait until he launched into a Progressive tirade against President Trump for not conceding to Joe Biden’s stolen electoral victory as the Democrats and New World Order demand. He was not at all interested in the election theft by Democrats, He wasn’t interested at all that Trump won re-election out right until the vote counting in the Blue States were stopped so they could figure out how many votes needed to be manufactured to overcome Trumps electoral sweep. Why do Liberals yell and scream louder trying to make us accept their weak point of view? It’s because they can’t argue with the truth so must shout down opposition views. Poor Brian Kilmeade, for the first time in my listening experience, he was actually flummoxed by the raging verbal assault on decency, fairness and President Trump.
Listening to Geraldo’s frothing rant against President Trump was the last straw. Chris Wallace lost my support long ago with his growing anti-conservative views politely wrapped in skepticism, and more especially since he botched up his role as the Trump-Biden debate moderator. Now, even Bret Baer is sounding like a “Lefty!” Time to go and that’s my good advice. I deleted the Fox News app from my smartphone and replaced it with the OAN and Newsmax’s apps. I stopped watching the “Five” when they hired Donna Brazile, DNC Chairman fired for providing Hillary Clinton with debate answers, to supplement the “Fives” other loud mouthed dufus, Juan Williams.
When Dan Rather went off the rails and manufactured a false story about George W. Bush, and got fired, not for doing it but for being caught, he was presented some silly news award for being brave or some such nonsense, as a way for the other media liars to throw a fog of silence over the fake news issue. Now, NY Governor Cuomo, in his darkest hour, accused of being a mass killer of over 6000 American elderly in his states nursing homes, is being presented an International Emmy Founders Award in “recognition of his leadership” during the China Wuhan “Virus pandemic and his masterful use of TV to inform & calm people around the world.” Like Dan Rather was, other public failures have to be publicly recognized by hoopla and shiny babbles to make them less repugnant until the heat blows over.
Nobody in the media gets fired today except Fox News Conservatives. Slowly but surely, they will be weeded out. Dana Perino, Brian Kilmeade, Jesse Waters and a few others may soon find it expedient, if they remain politically Conservative, to affiliate with the growing Conservative networks of Newsmax, OANN and a few others. O’Reilly did and I suspect Judge Jeanine Pirro may soon do so as well. Can they afford to lose Tucker Carlson? They may do just that. Fox is in the hands of the Murdoch brothers. Its time to wean ourselves from what’s not good for us. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Just do it! (21Nov20)
Well, I suppose it’s safe to scratch off Buzz-Feed as a reliable source of insider information on the Washington DC political scene. They now rank right up there with CNN, MSNBC, et. al.: as organs of fake news dedicated to only one thing, saving the Democrat party and its socialist agenda by eliminating the killer virus that is choking them to death, Donald Trump.
I’m surprised Mueller himself immediately debunked the Buzz-Feed story about the President directing his lawyer, Michael Cohen, to like to Congress and I suspect a rat here somewhere. That caught the Left-wing media totally by surprise. They changed their talking points to “what ifs” and rephrased their words to fool us, they think, into believing there was still a chance to find some tawdry evidence that could finally impeach Trump. That’s the face of desperation.
The demented talking heads of the left wing-media will, at any hint of a possible scandal, breath life into it in the vain hopes that they will expose some measure of truth that will grow into a scandal and end Trump’s presidency. Buzz-Feed tried to fulfill that mission and has now elevated itself to the highest level of distrust. By breathlessly publishing this false story without fact checking has rendered it as untrustworthy. For any group that pretends to be an objective reporting organ, to not even bother considering the “Red Flags” that identify fake news, seals the deal on their irrelevance. Now, anything they publish will be suspect!
The media, morally and ethically challenged, considers us to be politically irrelevant. They don’t really care what they say just so long as some of it sticks, somewhere. If they all say the same thing, then it must be true! Indeed, they believe their own copy and have thrown all standards aside in their singular, unquenchable desire to bring down Donald Trump.
Inherent in this daily assault of fake news is the primary goal of the Democrat-Socialists, the neutering of America’s heritage, culture and traditions for the sake of “diversity, multiculturalism and, truth be told, the elimination of all vestiges of influence of the European white male.
Consider the wall President Trump wants to build on our southern border. Under Obama, all the Democrats demanded it. Videos of their earnest desire to protect America from invasion by illegals are all over the internet. So what does the media do, ignore the historical past, focuses on the immediate future and whines about poor illegals and unemployed non-essential federal government employees, without a cent for the protective barrier we all wanted, once.
The media is all in on tooting the Democrats horn on policies that ignore Americas Vet’s, it’s tax payers, it producers and citizens of long standing, all for the sake of spending vast amounts of treasure to sustain people who don’t belong here simply because their presence gives them a humanitarian claim to feast at the trough of public assistance. When will the money run out?
The anti-Trump media, keen to be first to bring down the President, seems destructively eager to seize upon any and every rumor and regurgitate it out as factual truths. This time Buzz-Feed and the regurgitator’s got their fingers caught in a trap. Even Chris Wallace, on today’s Sunday Fox news, brought up the issue with Vice President Pence, apparently to achieve a “gotcha” comment. If Mueller already debunked the Buzz-Feed report, why didn’t the VP just say, “Why are we even talking about that issue Chris? It’s dead!” Well, its simply to keep it alive through one more news cycle. Chris Wallace, to be fair and balanced, just regurgitated leftist nonsense.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
Kasich’s Mad Dream, and Then Came Trump
“Breaking News:” John Kasich, the unemployed former Governor of Ohio has signed on with CNN as a political commentator. Now, how can that possibly be “breaking news?” CNN has morphed from a news agency into the Current Narrative Network for advancing Democrat propaganda that few people seriously watch for any reason except for laughs. The reason is that John needs a platform if he seriously wants to stand for President against Donald Trump.
The governor himself has become something short of a laughing stock simply because he insists on nursing the mad dream of becoming the neoconservative president of America. Going to CNN will not advance his cause. His daily struggle to convince us that Trump still remains a danger to America, and he could do better as the President, is a pipe-dream.
Kasich, once a congressman, is a product of the old Wash. DC world of ‘go along to get along,’ politics of comity with your enemies through bipartisanship, hands across the aisle, consensus on policy (so long as it’s socialist), that sort of thing. Kasich’s had his shot. He left the DC Swamp to become Governor of Ohio figuring that was his best chance of achieving his dream. As he lost to Trump (4th place), does his opinion even count any more? Neo-Conservatism was voted out of the Republican Party with Trumps election and John Kasich ain’t going to bring it back. To maintain a public platform for airing his opinions, only CNN, and maybe MSNBC, remain to fulfill his mad dreams and, will, who really cares?
This is Kasich’s official internet announcement: “We are excited about what this means for Gov. Kasich and his growing ability to weigh-in on the issues that Americans care about. We expect to see him continue calling on Washington to end the non-stop politicking an actually do something to offer real solutions to America’s challenges. What’s our (t)ask today? It’s simple. With more interviews comes more things to share and grow Gov. Kasich’s message and audience,” followed by the standard plea for a donation. I’ll give John an ‘A’ for Attempting, but now, he should just go away, he’s out of the game and his time is up!
Pelosi and Schumer, Harry Reid before them, John Boehner and Paul Ryan, like Kasich, are all products of that once elite social club of poor politicians turned rich by the longevity of their political service. Then came Trump and the whole fabric of political comity has been ripped asunder.
Despite his dreams, John can’t fix his damaged image, the one Trump gave him on the debate stage in 2016. He can bloviate his opinions on CNN until he actually becomes one of them, a socialist in name as well as deed but, he hazards his integrity to continue this career path if it’s only a job he needs.
If viewers of CNN are expected to waste their time considering John’s opinion, then they can watch any of the talking heads on CNN. They don’t need John Kasich. CNN needs Kasich because for them, he is the once enemy who has seen the light and will become their useful idiot. For the anti-Trump CNN, having an alleged Republican fall into their hands like a ripe banana, is pure gold. Of course they’ll give him as much free airtime as he needs to challenge Donald Trump in 2020. Kasich will serve as a leftist pawn, his persona trapped in the mire of their progressive (socialist) dogma. John will die there, lost but not forgotten. A pity!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
ICYMI: Collins Discusses Abedin Email Revelation with Fox News
WASHINGTON—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) joined Fox News today to unpack the latest developments surrounding the Russia investigation and the revelation that Secretary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff, Huma Abedin, shared classified information over a private email account.
On whether any evidence shows collusion in the Russia investigation:
“I think what we’ve seen is none at this point. . . . Let the investigation go. If somebody did something wrong, we’ve always said those should be held accountable.”
“The frustration here is ‘What are we actually going for?’ The president has got an agenda to move American forward . . . we need to focus on what really matters, and, look, Democrats are just simply playing politics with this issue again.”
“Let’s see where the facts lead. This is something that’s been investigated. It’s being investigated—not only through the Mueller investigation, if there’s a Russian connection—but it’s also being investigated on Capitol Hill, both in the Senate and in the House.”
On the revelation that Huma Abedin shared State Department information over a private e-mail account:
“Democrats can say it’s partisan, but I’m just simply saying, ‘What is the law?’ and you can’t be in a position that Hillary Clinton was in or Huma Abedin was in and actually be in a position to say, ‘Oops, I just didn’t know—Oops, it was careless.’ No, it was gross negligence.”
Will (R) Karen Handel embrace or distance herself from President Donald Trump? Will Trump voters come out and vote for Karen Handel? How hard will Dan Moody, Judson Hill, and Bob Gray work to convince their voters to vote for Karen Handel? If Fulton County is the Republican stronghold of the district then why did Ossoff get 41,269 votes? Ossoff received almost as many votes in Fulton County as Gray, Handel and Moody combined. Donald Trump is President of the United States because he did not used the “Republican Playbook.” By using the playbook the Republicans almost lost the 6th district. When will Republicans learn to throw the playbook out the window – Trump style?
ABC’s Martha Raddatz, Fox’s Chris Wallace, NBC’s Chuck Todd, and CBS’s John Dickerson all clearly exposed their liberal agenda this weekend concerning Russia and the possible ties to the Trump campaign. While some briefly discussed the topic of surveillance and unmasking of Donald Trump and members of his campaign team they continued to circle back to alleged Russian ties to the Trump campaign. Not one mention of the bombshell revelation concerning surveillance by Fox New’s Adam Housely. Housely reports sources with evidence of high up official(s) in the intelligence community that Trump and his campaign team were under surveillance even before he was became a nominee. It seems to be all four missed the revelations in the Evelyn Farkas interview with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski. Farkas was a Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defence for the Obama Administration. Farkas admits to Brzezinski that there was surveillance. Farkas’ admission, “That the Tump folks, if they found out how we knew about… the Trump staff’s dealing with Russia, that they would try to compromise those sources and methods.” It seems to be that the media is more interested in a story with no evidence concerning Russia, opposed to stories that could prove the accusations. With plenty of inculpatory evidence they completely overlook “the Clinton cash” or John and Tony Podesta.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) spoke with Ainsley Earhardt, Steve Doocy, and Pete Hegseth on Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends about the Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy (RAISE) Act and why it should be included in any solution to fix our country’s immigration problems.
Bipartisan Solution: “I applaud President Trump for reaching out. There is going to have to be a bipartisan solution to DACA. We all want a compassionate solution, but it must also include a fix to our archaic, 50-year old immigration system. That solution should include the RAISE Act. It eliminates chain migration and for once brings us merit based immigration.”
Historic Opportunity: “This is a national security issue. Parts of that border need a wall. There’s no question about it. President Trump said we are going to build a wall and we will build that wall. Let’s not miss this historic opportunity to fix this immigration system to better our economy.”
Securing America: “We’d love to have e-verify, the wall, security for the border, and the RAISE Act. These are things that conservatives in America really want. If you look at President Trump’s election last year, you can see that today.”
Broad Support: “The RAISE Act is extremely popular. Nearly three-fourths of Americans want some sort of reform of the immigration system to focus it on the worker and the immediate family.”
Top Priority For Americans: “This is an issue the American people want solved. Almost two-thirds of Americans believe this needs to be a merit-based immigration system just like the President has outlined. Tom Cotton and I have been working on this for months. It should be a bipartisan solution because the Democrats first had the idea in the 1990s.”
Breaking Through Gridlock: “Forget about partisan politics, the American people want to break through the gridlock and get this resolved. President Trump wants results.”
After President Trump’s tweet accusing President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower; Judge Andrew Napolitano reported on Fox News. Napolitano stated that he had three sources from the intelligence community claiming President Obama had Trump Tower under surveillance using GCHQ, a British spy agency, so there would be no Obama Administration fingerprints.
After a nine day suspension Napolitano returned to Fox News, where in an interview with Bill Hammer he doubled down on his original claims. Hammer asked Napolitano how confident he was and if he still stood by his original statements. Napolitano told Hammer that he was confident in his report and he still stands by the statements of his sources. Napolitano also stated, “The American public needs to know more about this rather than less because a lot of Government surveillance authorities will expire in the fall and there will be a great debate about how much authority we want the government to have to surveil us.” He later stated, “I think a lot more is going to come.”
Surveillance of Trump Tower Gets “Real” when Obama Administration Official, Evelyn Farkas, Admits to Surveillance of Trump’s Campaign Staff. Former Obama Deputy Secretary of Defence, Evelyn Farkas, may have made a stunning admission, with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski “If they found out how we know what we know about the Trump staff dealing with Russians, that they would try to compromise those sources and methods, meaning we would no longer have access to that intelligence.” Farkas’ statement corroborates a New York Times article from early March.
Is it time for the media to ask when President Obama will apologize to President Trump? When will the media acknowledge that the surveillance claim that President Trump made is real? When will Republicans convene committees to investigate Obama’s Administration, the leaks from the intelligence community, and unmasking of American citizens?
All the major media outlets are abuzz over Fox’s recent release of Bill O’Reilly and what is being called the toxic environment of the network. You would think the toxicity would be sexual harassment considering the accusations towards Roger Ailes and recently Bill O’Reilly. Not that we don’t think that the accusations about O’Reilly and Ailes could be true, and yes Fox has had to pay out millions of dollars to settle several lawsuits. However that is not the toxic environment that James and Lachlan Murdoch are genuinely trying to change at Fox News. Fox News has been known over the last 20 years as the conservative media alternative to CNN and MSNBC.
Before turning the power over to his two sons, Rupert Murdoch sided with anything Roger Ailes wanted to do. Why not, when the network is the number one and is bringing in a billion dollars? The two sons have much more liberal views. In fact James and his progressive minded wife Katherine, have long been embarrassed of certain elements of Fox News. They trash Donald Trump on their Twitter feed quite often. It is very clear that the goal is to move Fox News to the left. The remaining talent at Fox makes a pretty good paycheck and it’s best to seem they are satisfied with the new direction the company is going.
The coveted 8 o’clock times slot now belongs to the Fox News, up and coming superstar, Tucker Carlson. What better way to say you are going in the total opposite direction, no pun intended, than Bill O’Reilly is to have your first guest be (Bruce) Caitlyn Jenner. Jenner not only identifies not only as a female now but also as a Republican. Really? That’s who Tucker picked for his first debut guest or is this a clear signal for Carlson’s conservative viewers to see transgender, Republican tolerance. Now that’s what I call changing the direction of the network.
Senator David Perdue Discusses Fixing Legal Immigration System On Fox News
“The January 19 deadline to fund the government and the March 5 DACA deadline are two totally separate issues”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) spoke with Brian Kilmeade on Fox News’ Fox & Friends about yesterday’s bipartisan meeting at the White House to fix the legal immigration system.
Goals Established: “This President is an outsider. He is a business guy. He wants to get results on this issue just like he did on tax. What we did yesterday is agree on two things. One, we agreed on the scope of this current negotiation. We are not trying to solve all of our immigration problems here. What we want to do is solve the DACA issue, address border security, eliminate chain migration, and end the archaic visa lottery program. The second thing the President did yesterday was establish a sense of urgency. That is something rare in Washington.”
Differentiating Deadlines: “The January 19 deadline to fund the government, and the March 5 DACA deadline are two totally separate issues. I heard members on the other side talk about that after the meeting. January 19 is about funding the government, and that is another conversation entirely.”
Broad Support: “72% of Americans believe immigration should be focused on the worker and the immediate family. Name another idea or another issue here in Washington that 70% of Americans agree on. This is one issue where the American people are going to hold us accountable.”
Sense Of Urgency: “We are still working against a hard deadline of March 5. That’s how you bring a sense of urgency and get things done in Congress. President Trump said yesterday that he expects results on this issue. He is willing to work with us day and night. I think that was evident yesterday from the conversation we had in the White House.”
Focused Negotiations: “I give the President high marks for bringing a focus to this issue and not trying to solve every problem related to immigration but instead, focus right now on the legal immigration system.”
Senator David Perdue Recaps This Year’s Results, Previews 2018 on Fox News
ATLANTA, GA – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) spoke with Mike Emanuel on Fox News’ Special Report about President Trump’s significant accomplishments during his first year in office and the priorities heading into 2018.
Delivering Results: “President Trump laid out four agenda items this year. We accomplished most of them. President Trump wants to continue to get results. The economy is going to move now that we started regulatory work and with the tax bill we just passed.”
Early Success: “The President is working diligently to get ready for 2018, but he is very happy with the results of 2017. His first year in office we saw 2 million new jobs created, 860 rules and regulations being reversed, illegal crossings down 60%, 500 people have been fired at the Veterans Administration for non-performance. The President is very excited about the future of our country now that we’re moving to get the economy going again.”
Business Focus: “We have a business guy in the White House for a change. He is moving at a business place, not a bureaucratic pace. Look, 2018 is an election year, but we have different leadership in the White House. He is not going to waive off his priorities for an election process.”
Immigration Solution: “President Trump, Senator Tom Cotton, and I have been consistently saying that any solution for DACA has to include an end to this archaic chain migration and money for border security and the wall at our southern border.”
Helping American Workers: “That’s what’s wrong with Washington, career politicians don’t understand how the free enterprise system works. The best thing we can do for the American worker, the American consumer, for anyone who works in America is to help our businesses, large and small, become competitive again with the rest of the world.”
Breaking The Gridlock: “The problem in Washington is gridlock. The minority party is causing that right now, but there are signs of encouragement. Frankly, the immigration issue is one that should have a bipartisan solution. We believe we can do that early in the new year. The President is going to keep focused on that as we get back to work next week.”
Collins Discusses Rosenstein Briefing and Tax Reform
WASHINGTON—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference and member of the House Judiciary Committee, joined Fox News today to discuss the House Judiciary Committee’s oversight hearing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. He also spoke with Fox Business about the status of conservative tax reform and potential for infrastructure development in 2018.
On whether the Deputy Attorney General offered satisfactory answers at the oversight hearing:
“No, I’m not satisfied at all. In fact, Mr. Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General, shouldn’t be satisfied.”
“We’ve not even answered simple things like is [Strzok] still in communication with the Mueller team? Does he have a security clearance? Why was he put in human resources where he could influence other people?”
On the status of tax reform:
“We’re on the . . . very verge of getting exactly what we’ve told the American people we’re going to do and what the president said—by the end of this year, by Christmas actually, we’re going to pass a tax reform package that begins the process of doing what I’ve said before. We’ve got the best workers in the world, we’ve got the best ideas in the world, we’ve got an energy independence—we’ve got the worst tax system.
“Now we’re able to start saying we’ve got a tax system that puts us competitive not only with the world but [that] puts money into people’s pockets come the first of the year, and that’s something we’re excited about.”
Senator David Perdue Talks RAISE Act With Fox News’ Steve Hilton
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) spoke with Steve Hilton on Fox News Channel’s The Next Revolution With Steve Hilton about the Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy (RAISE) Act and why it should be included in any solution to fix our country’s immigration problems.
Getting Back On Track: “Our immigration system has gotten off track in the last 50 years. We’ve looked at best practices around the world to see what can we do to address the issue. We found Australia and Canada that both have a system that’s pro-worker, it’s pro-growth and proven to work.”
Needs Of Our Economy: “This is based on a democratic idea in the early 90s under former Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush. The bipartisan commission headed up by Congresswoman Barbara Jordan, a Democrat, came to the conclusion we need to move in the direction of a point system and bring in workers who are qualified for the needs of our economy.”
Bipartisan Solution: “I believe we’ll get bipartisan support on this bill because it’s so common sense. It is pro-job, pro-worker and pro-growth. It’s proven to work in Canada and Australia. This is not an experiment. We know this will work.”
Leveling The Playing Field: “What we have now is a competition for labor around the world and for technical workers. This gives us a little more level playing field.”
Measured Approach: “A lot of people who immigrate here get trapped because they’re not qualified for the jobs that are available. About half of all immigrant households in America are in our welfare system. Nobody wants that for them. This is a way to try to protect both them, and the other workers that are coming in.”
Growing The Economy: “One of the ways you defend yourself is by having the best and the brightest talent in the world. That helped create this economic miracle over the last 70 years. We have the most qualified people in the world. Look at our nuclear capability today. It came from immigrants. Why wouldn’t we want to welcome those people?”
Last week Pennsylvania 15th District Congressman Charlie Dent announced he would not seek an 8th term. One thing Dent did not say in his announcement is if he would complete his current term.
Just days before Dent’s announcement PA State Rep from the 131st District, Justin Simmons, announced he would challenge Dent for the 15th District seat.
The day after Dent’s announcement PA State Rep from the 134th District, Ryan Mackenzie, threw his hat into the race. Sources tell FYN that Mackenzie was with Dent the night before Dent made his announcement.
Mackenzie is being called Dent’s hand picked candidate. In an interview with FYN Simmons said Mackenzie is a part of the state establishment, the Republican establishment candidate. Simmons had the nerve to oppose Dent. We can’t find any information which indicates Mackenzie was prepared to oppose Dent before Dent announced he would not run.
Remember Dent did not say he would complete his term. Sources tell FYN Dent plans to retire. If he retires the voters won’t get a chance to pick the next 15th District Republican candidate through the primary process. The Governor will call for a special election. The voters will lose their voice.
Pictured L-R Lehigh County Rep Chairman Jess Banotai, Berks County Rep Chairman Joe Rudderow, Dauphin County Rep Chairman Dave Feidt, Lebanon County Rep Chairman Casey Long, & Northampton County Rep Chairman Lee Snover.
The Republican County Chairman “Party Bosses” from each county will pick Delegates. These Delegates will then vote for their candidate to run against a Democrat candidate. The Democrats have the same process.
Sources tell FYN that the cards are stacked in favor for Mackenzie and if Dent retires he will most likely become the Republican Candidate.
Dent is a liberal Republican who has opposed President Trump at every turn. Dent finds every TV camera he can in order to say something negative about President Trump. Darlin’ Charlie Dent reminds many PA Republican of Darlin’ Arlen Specter. Dent is the Co-Chair of the liberal Republican Tuesday Group.
The PA Republican establishment must remember, without the support of Senator Pat Toomey or Charlie Dent, Donald Trump won Pennsylvania. So without votes from Trump supporters the 15th District could easily go to a Democrat.
Could Dent be preparing for a run for Governor?
We called Dent to ask him if he is retiring.

Senator David Perdue Discusses Immigration Latest On Fox News & ABC
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) spoke with Trish Regan on Fox News Channel’s Sunday Morning Futures and George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week about recent meetings at the White House to fix the legal immigration system.
Highlights from Sunday Morning Futures
Negotiating A Deal: “The President has been very clear that any solution to DACA must include border security, including the wall, an end to chain migration, and an end to the visa lottery. Last week, we had two meetings at the White House. President Trump is very engaged on this issue, just like he was on tax. I’m hopeful we can get symmetry in this negotiation. In my business experience, that’s how you get to a deal and I still think there is a possibility to do that.”
Double Talk From Democrats: “It’s a gross distraction from the issue. Senators Schumer and Durbin both talked about ending parts of chain migration on the Senate floor. We’re doing things that the Democrats have voted for and have supported in the past. Under Bill Clinton in the 90s, we had a Presidential Commission actually recommend limiting chain migration and recommend moving to a merit-based immigration system based on who you are and not where you are from. The problem now is politics. That’s what’s so frustrating to all of us.”
Focusing The Scope: “Congress has failed three times in the last 11 years to fix the immigration system because they’ve been too comprehensive and tried to solve the legal problem, the temporary work visa problem, and the illegal immigration problem at the same time. What we’re doing now is limiting this debate to just the legal immigration system and I believe we can get to a solution.”
President’s Agenda Is Working: “If this were any other president getting the results that we’re getting right now in the economy, we would be crowing about the results. Two million new jobs created last year, 860 rules and regulations pulled back, 500 bureaucrats fired at the VA for non-performance, 300 fired in the Department of Education, consumer confidence is at a 17-year high, CEO confidence is at a 20-year high, 123 companies decided to give year-end bonuses because of our action on tax. This economy is beginning to move and what we have to do now is focus on immigration, infrastructure, and trade to keep moving the economy forward.”
Responding To Hawaii: “I don’t know the details of that yet, but it just heightens the fact that somebody made a mistake somewhere. As a member of the Armed Services Committee, I can assure you that we’ll get to the bottom of that.”
Highlights from This Week
Solving DACA: “The problem is Washington career politicians who just want to pander to their base. What we have right now is a gross misrepresentation of a meeting from Thursday. Two days earlier, the President held an hour-long open meeting with the media where Democrats and Republicans from both the House and Senate debated the issue. We want to solve the DACA problem. We want border security with a wall. We want to end chain migration and the visa lottery. That’s the scope we all agreed on Tuesday.”
Record Of Misrepresenting: “In 2013, Senator Durbin made the same allegation against a Republican leader in a meeting with President Obama, saying he chewed out the president and that this Republican leader was so disrespectful to President Obama they couldn’t even have the meeting. That’s what he said that in 2013. Later that day, President Obama’s own press secretary came out and said, ‘it did not happen.’ This is about a gross misrepresentation, and it’s not the first time.”
Current Negotiation Parameters: “We’re focusing on four things. The President has been consistent all along about what he wants in an immigration deal. I have been consistent. Senator Cotton has been consistent. Any deal on DACA has to include border security, including a wall, and the end to chain migration. That’s been consistent for the past year.”
