House gop willing to trade gun rights for alien deportations

Has Fox been purposely trying to lose credibility since they booted Ailes? Why are they championing liberal causes while at the same time bashing the current gop POTUS? Aren’t they supposed to be the one conservative mainstream news outlet? Or is that just some manufactured strawman created to give the left something to beat up and laugh at? They have been doing little to encourage any conservative agenda since the 2016 election, and every time I have the displeasure of consuming their media, I wonder if they’re trying to tank their brand.

You wouldn’t know it by the headline, but the gop tried to outflank the Dems from the left on the new gun background check bill and were denied. The new law enforcement notification amendment was an obvious political move by the Republicans, but it was effective and speaks volumes; the gop is willing to give away every U.S. citizen’s freedom, in the form of gun rights, for a small political win. Is that what the Bill of Rights is now, a stack of bargaining chip? And Breitbart, Fox, even the congressman that suggested the amendment, are all over media bragging about their gotcha accomplishment. How is expanding background checks and sending police after unsuccessful gun purchasers going to make any dent in our illegal immigration problem? My new favorite saying, with modern Republicans, who needs Democrats?

  1. Its not even just illegals, the amendment would have required law enforcement be notified when ANYONE failed a background check. That is, when any person who shouldn’t own a gun tries to get a gun

    1. Fox sucks, their TV network sounds like msnbc outside of their primetime lineup, and then they throw deceptive headlines around like this one to give their opposition fuel. The real headline should have been ‘GOP wants stronger gun background checks than Dems’. Then that idiot gop congressman that proposed the amendment goes on Twitter to bang his chest and brag that the Dems stopped him from trading every U.S. citizen’s gun rights for a deportation gimmick. Not many things raise my bp like Rinos!
