A man can easily lie about many things, but not this: Show me your finances and I will show you your priorities.
Political promises are easily made. Wrapping yourself in the flag is easily done.
Shedding a tear at a moment of tragedy or pounding a podium and proclaiming yourself the agent of change when things go wrong is easily done.
Pleas and promises are so subjective. It’s easy to say you’ve ‘done your best’. But if we’re really going to be honest, your accountant probably knows the ‘real’ you even better than your friend, your priest or your spouse.
Hell, with the lies people sometimes tell ourselves, in some ways maybe even better than we know ourselves. Why? Because where a man’s treasure is, you’ll find his heart there, too. That was the point Jesus was making, right?
Keep that in mind as we go on. If it’s true of people, it’s also true of political administrations:
Trump has a point here, doesn’t he?
Obama has no problem whatsoever digging up a crap-ton of money when it was part of kissing Iran’s ass — even though he gave us Sequestration to make sure that every dollar going into military funding had another dollar getting poured into Social programs for enlarging and fundamentally transforming government.
But when it came time to build a wall that BOTH parties had agreed to build under BUSH? Sorry. The cupboards are bare. Does that show you their real priorities are ANTI-border security? It’s ONE data point to be sure.
The fact that the Democrats didn’t mind shutting down the Government to protect DACA, and that they illegally provided cash to pay the lawyers of illegal immigrants —

— Are definitely some more solid data points to think about.
At what point do we get to connect the dots and see that even though the PRETEND to care about border security, they really care about their own political future?
Maybe this memo will complete the picture:
The Center for American Progress (CAP) Action Fund memo, which circulated Monday, called on Democrats to “refuse to offer any votes for Republican spending bills that do not offer a fix for Dreamers and instead appropriate funds to deport them.”
The memo from the left-leaning think tank also said that protecting DACA is not only a “moral imperative” but also a “critical component” in winning elections.
“The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also a critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success,” the memo read.
It finished, “If Democrats don’t try to do everything in their power to defend Dreamers, that will jeopardize Democrats’ electoral chances in 2018 and beyond.”
The Democrats’ use of TAXPAYER money tells us everything we need to know about what they REALLY stand for.
It certainly isn’t national security.
Is there a genuine threat at our border? Scalise thinks so:
“It’s incredibly important that we secure our border, ” Scalise told Fox News Channel’s Levin. “I applaud President Trump for being willing to do it.”
He continued, “[E]very single day in this country, at least ten known terrorists are captured trying to cross into America through our border. Why are we trying to secure the border? To keep America safe.”
And Fentanyl has just eclipsed heroin for lethality numbers.
These are just two of the reasons Trump is willing to let government shut down over making sure we have the money we need to build the wall.
Meanwhile, Schumer — who voted in 2006 for the Secure Fence Act — is blocking the vote to build that wall.
And the Democrats think that is a WINNING position?
