BREAKING!!! IT’S HAPPENING NOW After Shutdown!! BLOOD Is On Schumer’s Hands!

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders took to social media to make a point about the government shutdown. She has been tweeting out messages against Senate Democrats who refused to vote for the continuing resolution that would fund the government for another month as well as CHIP for another six years.

The Gateway Pundit reported,

The House budget resolution failed a cloture vote in the Senate on a largely party-line vote, 50 to 49. The Schumer Shutdown went into effect shortly after midnight Saturday. The Democrats chose illegal aliens over our wonderful men and women serving in the Military. Let that sink in.

On Saturday, Sarah Sanders tweeted out a photo sent to her from an infantryman serving in Afghanistan. Thank you, Chuck Schumer and Democrats! This is all on you!
American Forces Network provides entertainment and other services to our service members overseas. Due to Schumer’s shutdown, our men and women overseas currently do not have access to this network.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted, “I received this from a young infantryman serving in Afghanistan this morning. Sad that the men and women who have sacrificed so much are deprived of even the most basic connection to home bc Democrats are playing political games. #SchumerShutdown.””

The Independent Journal Review noted,

When the government began its shutdown Friday, people on both sides of the political aisle tossed blame at one another. The impact the shutdown has on government services is far-reaching. The suspension of federal funding makes things especially difficult for our men and women in uniform.

According to Pew Research, there were 1.3 million active duty members of the U.S. military in 2016, and in August, the Pentagon announced there were 11,000 troops serving in Afghanistan.If Congress fails to pass a provision for the military and the shutdown extends through Feb. 1, it will have a devastating impact on military pay. But as it turns out, services to our troops are already being cut.

It didn’t take long for some DOD operations to grind to a halt: American Forces Network, which provides entertainment and command information to U.S. servicemembers worldwide through its television and radio services, was dark early Saturday morning in Europe.

Classical music was playing on its radio and television stations and the network posted a message online that said AFN services were not available due to the government shutdown. Sanders isn’t the only one in the White House to go after Democrats for the shutdown. On Saturday, President Donald Trump said Democrats in Congress were taking the military “hostage” over their desire to keep “unchecked illegal immigration.””

Even though troops won’t have regular access to the internet, ESPN came to save the day for the upcoming NFL championships.

The American Forces Network will broadcast the NFL’s conference championship games despite the federal government shutdown. There was some question about access to the games for military outside the U.S. after the AFN put a message on its Facebook page on Saturday that its services would not be available because of the shutdown. The network airs American radio and television programming in Europe and other locations outside the U.S..

But White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders posted Sunday on her Twitter account that the AFN had been restored. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy also tweeted that the games would be on the network and called it “great news.” New England takes on Jacksonville in the AFC Championship Game, and Minnesota faces Philadelphia in the NFC Championship Game.”

The shutdown not only threatens our military but so many other aspects of our society such as passport services, Secret Service detail, capitol security, veterans benefits Medicare benefits, Medicaid benefits, and the salaries of hundreds of thousands of American citizens who work for the state and federal government.

Senate Democrats have placed our military personnel in danger by shutting down the government as well as many American citizens. If our military doesn’t have the resources to self-sustain they will not be able to carry out our missions while overseas placing not only them but the United States in danger.

They are placing the lives of 650,000 DACA recipients above the 9,500,000 children who are recipients of the Children’s Health Insurance Program. The simple math is pretty easy to figure out that these children’s lives are the most important. It should go without saying, it’s self-explanatory.

People can die over these types of issues yet over the weekend both sides of the aisle were busy arguing over whether the shutdown was the Schumer Shutdown or Trump Shutdown. Instead of debating and negotiating to bring the government back into business. While there has been another vote scheduled it appears that no headway has been made and our military will be left to continue to suffer.

Share if you agree the shutdown was the responsibility of the Democrats.
