The democrat party has become the party of Hamas.

Bill Clinton, as have all recent Presidents, tried to his best to negotiate a Middle East peace but failed.

Nearly a year after he failed to achieve a deal at Camp David, former president Bill Clinton gave vent to his frustrations this week over the collapse of peace in the Mideast. And Clinton directed his ire at one man: Yasir Arafat. On Tuesday night, Clinton told guests at a party at the Manhattan apartment of former U.N. ambassador Richard Holbrooke and his wife, writer Kati Marton, that Arafat called to bid him farewell three days before he left office. “You are a great man,” Arafat said. “The hell I am,” Clinton said he responded. “I’m a colossal failure, and you made me one.”

Clinton said he told Arafat that by turning down the best peace deal he was ever going to get-the one proffered by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and brokered by Clinton last July-the Palestinian leader was only guaranteeing the election of the hawkish Ariel Sharon, the current Israeli leader. But Arafat didn’t listen. Sharon was elected in a landslide Feb. 6 and has gradually escalated his crackdown on the Palestinians despite a shaky ceasefire negotiated two weeks ago by CIA chief George Tenet.

Arafat just kept saying no. Since then, nothing has changed. Today, Abbas wants no peace.

And at home, as well. While Abbas cried “treachery” and trashed the Bahrain participants, Palestinian social media was more interested in other developments: The PA’s top brass gave itself 20-percent salary hikes, even while blaming America for cuts to social services and salaries for everyone else.

Critics of the Bahrain conference predicted (hoped?) that its failure would isolate America. Those Europeans and traditional American peace processors have long taken their cues from Ramallah. No wonder they fail to notice that it’s the PA that’s increasingly left behind.

For decades, it has been an article of faith: Palestinian leaders should be given unconditional support to promote the “two state solution” — a misnamed formula, as one state already exists, thrives and hardly needs outside help.

They do not want peace. They want the issue.

democrats are in an ever evolving search for something with which to cripple President Trump. First, it was a phony election. Then it was the Russia hoax. Then he’s a dictator. Now, according to “Fat Bastard” Nadler, he is torturing children.

For a very long time democrats said there was no crisis at the border. Then suddenly there is a crisis at the crisis at the border and it somehow is Trump’s fault. When asked what should be done, democrats had nothing to offer.

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama deported more people than any other president. A PBS report from February noted: “Last year, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement deported more than 256,000 people, a 13 percent increase from the previous year. The agency said the 2018 total was the highest number of deportations since 2014.” But get this: That Trump-era high is “still lower than the number of deportations during Obama’s first term. In 2012, for example, the Obama administration deported more than 409,000 people.”

What the Obama administration knew, and what any of these Democratic candidates will find out if they make it to the White House, is that we simply can’t admit every person who wants to come to America.

Democrats can continue to do this strange dance around their actual opinions. They can fill the airways with lofty words about how deeply they care. But it’s all talk until they outline their actual policies on illegal immigration.

After weeks of doing nothing and under mounting pressure, Pelosi finally caved and the House passed a humanitarian relief bill.

Notably, four democrats opposed the bill- the House Anti-American caucus:

Four House Democrats on Tuesday evening bucked party leadership and voted against a bill to provide $4.5 billion in emergency border funding.

The Democrats who voted against the bill were Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Ayanna Pressley(Mass.) and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) 

The handful of defections come in the wake of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) meeting on Monday evening with progressive and Latino lawmakers who were hesitant to support the measure.

The Senate defeated the dem bill and passed a its own bill for border relief. All 2020 democrat Presidential candidates were absent from the vote:

All seven Democrats in the Senate running for president were absent Wednesday for a vote to send $4.6 billion in emergency humanitarian relief to the southern border to help thousands of migrant families and unaccompanied children.

Less than 24 hours after House Democrats passed a measure Tuesday night, the Republican-controlled Senate rejected it with a 55-37 vote and approved their own measure with overwhelming bipartisan support with a 84-8 vote, accordingto the Washington Post.

Republicans and the White House far prefer the Senate measure but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pressing for quick negotiations to merge the bills — promising that Democrats won’t knuckle under to demands to send the Senate bill directly to President Donald Trump without changes.

The Senate vote sent the must-pass legislation measure back the Democratic-controlled House. Next steps are unclear, but Pelosi quickly dismissed speculation that the Democratic-controlled House will simply accept the Senate measure, which cleared a key committee last week with just one dissenting vote. Asked if the House would pass the Senate bill and send it to Trump, Pelosi said, “No.”

“They passed their bill, we respect that. We passed our bill, we hope they will respect that. And if there’s some improvements that we think can be reconciled,” Pelosi said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) slammed House Democrats on the floor Wednesday, saying their priorities revolved around “Resistance theater,” adding that the Senate “has a better and more bipartisan way forward.”

It is unlikely to reach an accord. democrats do not want border relief. They do not want Trump to even appear to have any sort of victory.

They don’t want a solution- they want the issue.

Just like Hamas.
