2018 is now in the books and for most of us, we say good riddance. Now we are in a new year where those in power in the government the Democrat and the Republican party cannot seem to come up with a plan to end the partial shutdown of the Federal government. 800,000 employees have not received any pay for the last eleven days, although they will eventually be paid contract workers will not. The president says that those workers support his actions to get the funds for his “beautiful” border wall. The Democratic leaders are standing firm on not releasing those monies to reopen the government.
The Border Patrol now says that the migrants are now arriving at the southern border in buses. The human traffickers are stepping up their game to get as many people as possible in an attempt to force both the U.S. and Mexican to process asylum claims faster. The leadership of the governments of the impoverished countries in Central America are being held accountable by the president who has threatened to cut off all financial aid to that region unless they stop the emigration of their citizens North. Good luck with that plan.
Who will be the Democratic front-runner in the 2020 election has yet to be determined as they will be going after the president with a long list of investigations into his financial dealings and his family contacts with the Russians. A Newsweek article states: A former Bush Adviser believes Trump will leave office in 2019 in exchange for “the relevant authorities not pursuing criminal charges against him, his children.” Is this the new reality we as citizens of America must get used to? Sadly it seems that just might be the case.
