Lindsey Graham Goes Beastmode in Open Letter To Nancy Pelosi About the Wall

Published

on

Gotta love Lindsey Graham, 2.0.

The Republican Senator from South Carolina has been a strong supporter of President Donald Trump’s effort to build the wall and a big proponent in Congress. He has previously urged Trump to “dig in and not give in.”

And on Friday, he had a very simple message for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic caucus about the funding deal that has been stalled.

“To Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats,” Graham tweeted. “No Wall Money, No Deal.”

Boom. That’s the strength that has been needed.

From Daily Caller:

The House passed a stopgap funding bill on Dec. 20 that included $5.7 billion for a border wall, however, with a 51-seat majority in the Senate, Republicans fell short of the necessary 60 votes needed to send it to President Donald Trump’s desk for signature.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer vowed to kill the legislation on arrival in the Senate, and consequently, a government shutdown has been in effect since funding expired Dec. 21. [….]

“If I were the president, I would dig in and not give in on additional wall funding — I’d want the whole $5 billion because the caravan is a game changer,” the South Carolina senator said. “$1.6 billion is available to the president, he wants $5 billion, and after the caravan, if you don’t see the need for additional border wall security, you’re just not paying much attention.”

They will have more Republicans in the Senate come January, but fewer in the House where Democrats will be in the majority and Pelosi will likely be Speaker.

    Nice going Lindsey. Stay behind President Trump and hold out for the wall. The Bitch wont deal but goes to Hawaii for a vacation while she plays. The people suffer for no other reason then they dont like Trump

  • Jaron Joyner says:

    It’s hard to believe the Democrats are risking the American Citizens Security and our safety-Just because they don’t like President Trump.I thought our Repersentitives were suppose to put the American people’s “WELFARE”-Above everything else.—Guess Not ???

      YOU ARE RIGHT, CONGRESS IS THERE TO PROTECT THE CITIZENS OF TE UNTED STATES OF AMERICA, BUT NANCY IS THERE TO PROTECT HER REELECTION. SHE REPRESENTS A DISTRICT THAT HARBORS ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, CRIMINALS AND DRUG DEALERS SO ITS POLITICALY CORRECT FOR HER TO OPPOSE ANYTHING THAT HINDERS ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS

    • William conley says:

      It’s never been like this this is why electing people to represent us is an idiotic concept we should be a true democracy we all vote ourselves on every issue and it’s mandated by law you have to vote on all issues or you’re right to vote is permanently revoked or you’re charged with a crime that eventually comes with jail time. The issue is we are too damn lazy as a people to resolve things ourselves hence why we delegated the tile to another who has never truly represented us.

  • Ilse says:

    Senator Lindsey is absolutely right. If Pelosi continues with her garbage we the people demand that she take about 50 or so of the illegals into her compound and then take down her walls and fire her armed security guards. Very simple, put your money where your mouth and hands always are.
    She does not deserve the speaker roll again either. Wait until someone in her family loses their live from the hands of an illegal ALIEN. I am tired of hearing IMMIGRANTS. They are not IMMIGRANTS, they are CRIMINALS. I am also tired of hearing that walls don’t work. The walls are keeping you safe, are they not?

    • Joseph Holland says:

      I agree with you and we need to get her fired is what we the people need to do and her side kick to. Amen

    • bkaur says:

      I agree.. and I’m so sick of these worthless good for nothing politicians holding these illegal aliens above our laws and the American people.. IT IS INSANE HOW THEY BEND OVER BACKWARD FOR THESE ILLEGAL ALIENS WHILE THEY KICK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IN THE BACK!!
      They break our laws and get rewarded for it with more and more of OUR rights and benefits.. this totally encourages more and more of them to flood this country and the citizens pay the price in more ways than one..
      I’m so disgusted how Pelosi, Schumer and the others want to destroy our country.. Right now, they refuse to do anything that will give President Trump a win… they hate him that much and it is totally uncalled for… IF they REALLY cared about the American people they would stop their vicious lies and put aside their hate and try working with President Trump FOR the American people.. NONE of them belong in office and need to be removed!!!

  • Stand firm President Trump. I just seen a video where the illegal immigrants are coming in by the bus full. We are being introduced to new diseases, ones that we don’t have ways to treat it or cure it, we are already losing people to diseases that they are saying its the flu. We need our wall, stand firm for the full amount. We are behind you. Why is Nancy Pelosi still in the administration, she needs to be fired and send her home. President Trump please keep cleaning the swamp, get the ones who doesn’t care for America out of the Administration.

    When the founding fathers said we need a tax it was to support government and our military it was not to be used as a slush fund for a party to buy votes in power with. This money is the American people’s money and we demand our house be secure. It is the job of the civil servants and government to obey the will of the people in the world do people want the wall and is why we put Mr. Trump in power. The communist a.k.a. Democrat party has been when the founding father said we needed to ask it was to support government and our military it was not to be used as a slush fund for a party to buy votes in power with. This money is the American people‘s money and we demand our house be secure. It is the job of the civil servants and government to obey the will of the people in the world of the people want the wall and is why we put Mr. Trump in power. The communist a.k.a. Democrat party has been Obstructionist from day one when Mr. Trump came to power. They had no way or wil obstructionist from day one when Mr. Trump came to power. They are determined to Norway support one thing that Mr. Trump has done that one thing except for the present thing and that was it. This party would not have one if the votes were not fix the no states where these congressman one seats, as the Democrat party has lost seats for the last three federal elections because of the distain for the American people. There are those also in the Republican Party that are hanging with them and you can see which ones they are and that of the ones you vote with the communist a.k.a. Democrat party in those must be primary out! Just remember how many people died for this country and the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and is still the greatest nation on the face of the earth, but we must put evil down and that is Zach Lee what the left is demonically evil. God bless America and let her be very great once more in the hands of God Watch over and bless us once more

    • Susan Meyer says:

      Proud Vet – I do agree with you 100%. This is not related to money for the wall, but you really need to work on your spelling and grammar. Sorry, but these things bug me and proves our education system needs major work also. Having said that, your message is right on.

    • bkaur says:

      Agree.. this has nothing whatsoever to do with the money.. IT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THEIR EXTREME HATE FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THEY DO NOT WANT HIM TO WIN…. THEY WANT TO DESTROY HIM AND HIS ADMINISTRATION…They do NOT care enough about the American people and our country to set aside their hate and lies and work with him FOR us… They would rather bend over backwards to take care of the illegal aliens who have NO right to be here illegally.. THEY ARE TOTALLY INSANE!!! ALL OF THEM NEED TO BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE..

  • IMJustice says:

    We keep talking about the here and now small things…
    The bigger picture is what the world Globalists have been hatching for years…

    Bring down America, and make it equal to all…
    And, we collectively are too misinformed what that will look like,
    or even Democrats wouldn’t vote Democrat, unless they are poor or broke.

    Hey everyone…..Just pay attention to the International Monetary Fund,
    and what they are about to do… Are you prepared?

  • Sandy Miller says:

    @ Susan Meyer.. Please, The man served his country and while doing that he was protecting all of us including you. If something as asinine as a misspelled word or not perfect grammar bugs you then maybe you should crawl in a hole so you won’t be bugged. What “bugs” me is people who nit-pick about things so ridiculous. I don’t care if he would have misspelled every word, it can’t compare with his service to this country. Thank you for your service Proud Vet.

    • Victoria says:

      Sandy, I couldn’t agree with you any more with your every word to Proud Vet. I find when reading other’s comments that some of the most intelligent, impassioned words often come from some of the less grammatically correct comments. I have a couple of sites where this very lovely, seemingly elderly lady of German or Austrian descent frequently will leave a comment. Although at times it takes a bit for me to read through her words the first time I always go back a second time looking for her message as she has very clearly gone through some life experiences I am grateful to have escaped to the present day and hope to never have to deal with.
      I wonder if Susan ever gave it a second’s thought that very possibly “grammar and spelling” were not strong suits of Proud Vet but most possibly going through what he has endured may be a cause for what “bugs” her. Sometimes we would be much better off trying to place our own feet into someone else’s shoes to walk a mile before we decide to develop a case of verbal diarrhea onto someone else. This being said this veteran is thankful Proud Vet found his/her voice here and I only pray he/she doesn’t allow Susan’s overblown sense of self keep them from speaking out.

  • MReeves says:

    Most Americans blame the Democrats for shutdown so let them make as-es out of themselves.

  • bkaur says:

    Stand firm Mr. President.. HEAVEN HELP THIS COUNTRY IF YOU GIVE IN TO THESE VICIOUS LYING DEMOCRATS… This country is our home and these illegal aliens have NO RIGHT to enter it illegally and I am so FED UP with our pathetic loser politicians bending over backwards to take care of illegal aliens while they stab the American people in the back… They ARE criminals when they step foot into this country illegally and SHOULD be treated as such… they come here to take advantage of the country and take what benefits they can from us and the stinking politicians allow it…IT IS UNACCEPTABLE..!!!! WALLS DO WORK – STAND YOUR GROUND AND GET THAT WALL BUILT….
    HEAVEN HELP THIS COUNTRY IF YOU ALLOW THE DEMOCRATS TO BACK YOU DOWN…
    we also REALLY should STOP ALL free benefits to ALL illegal aliens .. we should NOT be spending ONE DIME on an illegal alien… this is NOT fair to the American people who’s money is being used to support them.. this money is NOT meant for illegal aliens… this money for the American people!!! we have vets living on the streets, American kids going hungry – HOW ABOUT START CARING ABOUT AMERICANS AND STOP CATERING TO THE ILLEGAL ALIENS!!!!
    These illegal aliens are costing this country more and more and it’s the citizens who pay the price for it in more ways than one.. there is NO WAY that they contribute more to this country than they take.. and ONE VICTIM OF AN ILLEGAL ALIEN IS ONE VICTIM TOO MANY…
    HOW MANY MORE AMERICAN LIVES HAVE TO BE MURDERED BY THEM OR RAPED OR ROBBED BY THEM BEFORE THE PEOPLE WAKE UP!!!
    BUILD THAT WALL NOW!!! AMERICAN LIVES MATTER!!!

  • CrustyOldGeezer says:

    I just wish the democrats would stop creaming at obama for the 150 BILLION IN CASH that he delivered TO IRAN shortly before leaving office.

    I’m also still looking for the BUDGET THAT ALLOWED for that expenditure to an ENEMY OF AMERICA.

    I’m also still looking for ONE of the TRILLION DOLLAR “shovel ready” jobs to appear.

    hmmm, nary a peep about that TRILLION DOLLARS they had no trouble finding.

  • Maurice says:

    We knew this was going to happen, should have gone for the whole $25 Bil to build ALL the wall.

  • Larry says:

    Lindsey has become a man recently!

  • Hillbilly says:

    Obama was known to pull an ‘executive order’ out of his ass for bullshit things such as letting pervert males in bathrooms with little girls. Trump should trump that and keep criminal alien invaders that are bringing diseases to our border

    • Victoria says:

      Disagree! At this point democrats have squashed every EO Trump has tried that is a subversion to their great plan. At this time it is better President Trump be very judicious with EO’s. Bammy did his EO’s on the QT so we never saw them and certainly anyone in the world of news who found out about what he was doing wasn’t about to say anything or they might be found dead. It wasn’t until President Trump got into office and began uncovering a lot of what happened without our knowledge that EO’s even became known in the public. If the MSM hadn’t have been so angered by Trump running against everyone he ran against to include Bammy most of his EO’s would be as successful as Bammy’s were. However, the left had one last card to play and this was/is the 9th Judicial Circuit Court which is overloaded with Bammy appointees. Until the SCOTUS determines that a “district court” can’t rule for the entire country EO’s will be struck down time and again. While a lot of work has been going on trying to correct our federal court system this is a very slow process. Finding a pure Constitutionalist to sit on a bench may be one of the hardest goals of his presidency. If you don’t believe me just take a good look at the sudden case of whiplash Justice Roberts has developed.

  • wvweights says:

    I agree with all (most)of the above,,,,,,,with the only one being the one about spelling. I believe we all new what he was talking about and did not let a little thing like spelling bother us. In fact just for the heck of it….a lot of…..tmes ….i mispell a work just to see who tries to correct me….So much for that….but a question I have to the Senator is why the so called head of the senate not use the….atomic option….and get it passed? If you find out please let us know.

  • Dragonfly43 says:

    I think all news media need to start emphasizing how Pelosi, Schumer, and their ilk were all for the wall when Obama wanted it and were willing to give him even more money than what Trump asked for. There are numerous videos of them calling for border security when Obama was in office. These quotes from Clinton and Obama should be aired daily:
    “But there are some areas that the federal government should not leave and should address and address strongly. One of these areas is the problem of illegal immigration. After years of neglect, this administration has taken a strong stand to stiffen the protection of our borders. We are increasing border controls by 50 percent. We are increasing inspections to prevent the hiring of illegal immigrants. And tonight, I announce I will sign an executive order to deny federal contracts to businesses that hire illegal immigrants. Let me be very clear about this: We are still a nation of immigrants; we should be proud of it. We should honor every legal immigrant here, working hard to become a new citizen. But we are also a nation of laws.” –Bill Clinton, State of Union, 1996
    Obama’s comment on immigration: “We simply cannot allow people to pour into the U.S., undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, lawfully to become immigrants in this country” — Barack Obama

    • Victoria says:

      Please don’t hold your breath waiting for all or any more media outlets to start pointing the obvious out too. Remember their motto: the rules/laws are for thee and not for me! Great talking points when it worked for them but crickets when someone tries to enforce it. Remember the warning Reagan’s son sent to President Trump last week….his father is still waiting for the wall he was promised!
