Congressman Stewart, along with two other reps and a Senator need to be removed
from office by the voters. Each of these men support a President that is a
serial liar. Do we need a wall? Let's use facts, not lies, to make that
determination. Does the military actually need the money that has been
appropriated and now ripe for the plundering by this President or not? Does
Stewart put a wall above other military considerations. Sounds like it to me.
Trump says generals agree with him - wall before military readiness. What does
Stewart say? Our congressional reps have been reduced to sniveling toadies of a
President who has no respect for the law. Those who continue to look the other
way as he continues to exert his power are playing a dangerous game that one day
will come to haunt this nation.
cmbennett1Forget Jericho, but remember the wall that God will put
around New Jerusalem (Zion) in the Book of Revelations.
DN Subscriber"Your comment starts with this deliberately false
statement and should be ignored.All federal workers received back pay for

relied on government workers. They don't get any back pay though. You want
another shutdown so Trump can get a useless wall and more Americans go further
into debt because they don't have an income. Don't you support

approve funding for the wall which caused the shutdown."No, it
was Trump and McConnell that couldn't get Mexico to pay for the wall. ALL
their fault."Rep. Stewart's displeasure with the budget

Trumps money to use as he wishes. It's ours.There are other
things that money can be used for...like infrastructure rebuilding. Why build a
wall that a tunnel can defeat or a $100 ladder?
I came here hoping the D News would write something about what Stewart said
about McCabe...but they didn't.In fact, there isn't much
at all about the collusion story fizzle.As for the Dreamers, no way.
That's amnesty. They already have a way to get legal. We've got to
make our country less attractive to people who are dragging their children here
at great danger. When people work the system, you plug the loopholes.
There are a lot of naysayers that respond to these articles. But the more I
hear Congressman Stewart, the more I like him. So glad he has the values and
commitments he does. Thank you for what you do for us and taking
Stewart is like most Republicans. All talk an no action. They didn’t do
anything when they had complete control, but now when Democrats control the
house it’s all of the Democrats fault. Why when you repealed Obama Care
and are proud of it is there still the penalty on your income taxes.
I'm disappointed with the bill because it does not provide any funding for
building a wall along the border with Canada.
He shouldn't be happy with the deal that was made. Quite often, we
read/hear about drug busts on I-15 through the St. George area. We don't
know how many are not caught.
Remember Joshua and his trumpet section at Jericho.
@DN Subscriber"Remember, it was the fault of Democrats who
refused to approve funding for the wall which caused the shutdown."So it's your opinion that Democrats should just capitulate to the whims
of Dear Leader? It's amazing to me to watch all of the
"conservative" commenters here who viewed the Republican party as
patriotic saviors of our nation for their complete obstruction of everything
President Obama proposed, and who are now more than happy to bow down to the
dictatorial desires of Donald Trump. I honestly believe that most of these
people would be very satisfied living under a Dictatorship, as long as the
dictator says he's a Republican.Oh, and BTW, our President
promised his voters that Mexico would pay for the wall, not US taxpayers. The
Democratic party is simply trying to help him keep his campaign promise.
I swear common sense no longer is commonWe have a president who want
to wants 20+ billion dollars on a border wall (5 now a 15 later )that we
know a wall will only temporary deter drug trafficking, marginally deter
Illegals and down right wont stop terrorists. Yet when the
"fiscally responsible" thing to do is put those tax dollars toward
actual expenses that will benefit US citizens Trump supporters blame Democrats ?
What Bizzaro world do you live in ?Locally Utah R's have
complained about just about every Federal Service we have yet these services are
severally under budget. But now you want to take more funding away from these
services. Choose a Side and stop complaining
I am with you Chris
I appreciated his concern for the DACA kids.... this is ridicules to hold them
out there as political pawns. Perhaps he can author legislation to bring the
subject back to the bodies floor. He can do that if he truly is concerned.As for the funding, we just saw the federal deficit ballon up yet
another trillion dollars this year. We can't keep giving out corporate tax
cuts, put a 8% tax raise on the middle class ( as witnessed by decreased refunds
this year), and spend as we have. Paying for infrastructure incrementally
unfortunately is the only sensible way to fund these kinds of projects.
Depending on revenues, next budget cycle they can allocate more.I do
really like Ted Cruz's idea about using the Drug kingpins fortunes to pay
for the wall/barrier/fence. It would only seem justice if his money funded the
construction.We need to incrementally fund infrastructure... it
needs to be done... but we can't burst the budget doing it.
Yesterday I wrote a derogatory statement about Rep. Chris Stewart's
motives for supporting DACA now . After research I admit my mistake. I wrote: "..... He hasn't stood up for the dreamers to this date, why now?
"Here is a 2017 article about how Chris Stewart feels about
DACA. “Nonetheless, I believe that we must protect those
individuals who came to this country as children. I’m a cosponsor of two
pieces of legislation that will continue to protect children of undocumented
immigrants. These include the BRIDGE Act and the ENLIST Act. These bills bar the
removal of individuals who were brought here under the age of 15 that are
currently pursuing education, have recently graduated, or are serving in the
armed forces. "
Trump and the GOP had several opportunities to get more funding for the wall.They blew it. That includes Mr. Stewart. He was in the majority for
two years on this deal, as was our President.I'm tired of the
President's followers, and I do mean followers, trying to blame the
Democrats. There is multiple video's of Trump 'owning' the
shutdown. Why do his followers still try to pass the blame elsewhere. Trump
and the GOP had a chance at $25B and wasted it away. IF, and
that's a big IF, the wall is so critical it seems like they would have done
anything to procure it? I guess the wall is a chess piece like everything else?
Thus, not as critical as some claim.
Looks like the Democrats have given up on DACA.
Who is Chris Stewart?
Chris is a great American who always speaks the truth and acts in a reasonable,
conservative manner. Thanks Chris for your service.
@dn subscriber“Remember, it was the fault of Democrats who
refused to approve funding for the wall which caused the shutdown.”No, it was McConnell who refused to allow votes on all the house bills
to open the government. The shutdown was McConnell and trumps fault.
With budgets like these, who needs geopolitical foes to undermine our Republic?
The deficit spending is doing just fine on its own, without any help from the
Russians or Chinese.
"Like other recently released reports, the congressman said he doesn't
think the Mueller probe will find any evidence of collusion."How
can Stewart be so sure when Trump's campaign manager has a lied a number of
times about secretly meeting with Russian Officials during the campaign.
@ the educator"All the federal workers who are voters in Davis and
Weber County should all vote Stewart out of office in 2020. It appears like he
wants you to work and not receive compensation."Your comment
starts with this deliberately false statement and should be ignored.All
federal workers received back pay for the "shutdown" period, even if
they did not work. So, they actually got a very nice paid vacation. If a 6
week delay in receiving payment (for work not done) then they have much more
serious problems with budgeting and money management that need to be
addressed.Remember, it was the fault of Democrats who refused to
approve funding for the wall which caused the shutdown.Rep.
Stewart's displeasure with the budget deal is fully justified.
The largest problem by far with the budget is that it puts us all another
Trillion dollars in debt. It's always bipartisan to pass growing costs on
to future generations. There's no justification for this. We should have
a balanced budget now.
Not fixing problems while in control in Washington is not a left or right thing,
they both fail to govern when in office. That is why obama did so much without
both houses, much to the countries demise. And that is why trump is doing the
same thing. Doing nothing in government means you always have things you need to
accomplish, so you need to get re elected. Term limits solves that problem I
don't see why we keep voting them in. If your dr never fixed your health
problems would you keep going to him? If so call me dr.
@1covey - Salt Lake City, UT"Did anyone read the article by Tim
Ballard, former DHS Special Agent and CEO of Operation Underground featured in
DN online news?"Why read anything about the wall? Just listen to
Trump and his phony national emergency message.
Stewart is only half right or half truthful. What he really cares about is the
low amount allocated for the Wall. He hasn't stood up for the dreamers to
this date, why now? It is a artifice to appear bipartisan.
I agree with Chris Stewart. The bill is watered down to the degree it means
little compared to what the President asked for. We need the wall and something
needs to be put in place concerning the dreamers. This bill will do very little
to put these issues to rest.
From the Article:---"We wanted to give some protection to
‘Dreamers’ and we couldn't get there, and we couldn't get
there because the Democrats wouldn't work with us on that," Stewart
said.---Hogwash. The GOP has never had any interest in
protecting 'Dreamers', but to the contrary, Trump and Co. have used
the Dreamers to castigate Obama's policies, whip fear and loathing for
illegal immigrants, and of course support false claims of being invaded by
immigrants. The GOP has tagged along with Trump on these issues.The
GOP had a majority for 2 years, and rather than work on DACA protection
legislation, better budgeting, the GOP gave the wealthy a tax bonanza, and Trump
and Co. have negatively impacted the US allies abroad, and closer to home,
Canada and Mexico. The GOP lead Congress has given Trump as much as they could,
and he has squandered it, whether actual dollars, or the public relations
Rep. Stewart knows very well that the so-called "compromise" on Dreamers
was to give them temporary protection in exchange for $5.6 billion for a vanity
project. At the expiration of the temporary protection period, the Dreamers
would be right back in the mess that Mr. Trump has created for them, but Mr.
Trump would then have his graffiti canvas. That is a non-starter. Had the GOP,
and by extension Mr. Trump, been willing to offer permanent protection for
Dreamers, and sensible immigration reform, I think there would have been
support. Rep. Stewart has become a caricature of the ideal Trump acolyte -
support whatever Mr. Trump says in the exact moment he says it, even if he then
goes on to contradict himself in the following sentence. In the inevitable
circumstance where that happens, turn yourself around and support the newly
For speaking the truth and using common sense, Representative Chris Stewart is
getting a lot of flak. It is evident the Democrats preferred to sacrifice DACA
in order to diminish our capability of protecting our border by severely
limiting the proposed Walls. Did anyone read the article by Tim Ballard, former
DHS Special Agent and CEO of Operation Underground featured in DN online news?
If Chris isn't pleased with the budget, then I am.Go on, you
Article: "Stewart, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said
Mueller should make his entire investigation public when it's
completed."Yeah, about that. Rep. Stewart may not
know some of this complicated fancy lawyery stuff, but by law, Mueller does not
decide if his report is made public, nor how much, if any, will be redacted.The Dept. of Justice makes that decision, specifically the acting
director Matt Whitaker or his successor. Both are Trump appointees, thus no one
expects the DoJ to release Mueller's report. Which is why
Mueller has been filing 'speaking indictments' -- loaded up with many
more factual allegations than are required to meet the minimum for a federal
indictments. In lieu of the public seeing the full report Mueller submits to
DoJ, we will have an easy-to-follow connect-the-dots picture to trace.Of course, the final round of indictments will get a lot more fanfare than
whatever Mueller hands in to DoJ as his "report".
Everyone gets their say. Not everyone gets their way
If only Stewart had been in a position all these years to make a difference! Oh
darn! If only he had the power to propose legislation to solve problems! If
only! Other than be obstruct President Obama and rubber stamping
anything Donald spouts off, what has Stewart done? What specifically has Stewart
done to make your life better? If you can't say anything, then isn't
it about time he be replaced? Why shouldn't government be
working to improve our lives?
Stewart's hypocrisy is astounding. When he was in the majority, he could
have done more to address DACA, but the GOP fell flat on its face. Stewart has
to bear some of the responsibility for this failure. Now that he is in the
cheap seats as part of the minority, he takes cheap partisanship to a new level.
Now, no one cares what he has to say (except this newspaper, for some reason).
Dreamers resolution is easy. Make them citizens today. It's what 75% of
Americans want. Why is it so difficult to do it, unless you're in bed with
that 25% of Americans who live in constant hate.
Explain how he gets voted into office when the majority of the voters oppose
I Mexico can pay for the wall with the seized assets from el chapo. 14 billion
would do it.
Most Utahn's in Chris Stewart's geographical area are not pleased with
him. If it weren't for GOP gerrymandering, he wouldn't be a Utah
congressman. Plus, Stewart's missing an important point. Trump promised
that Mexico would pay for the wall, not American taxpayers. Why is Stewart
defending Trump's lie?
Good for him! Vote NO on it. Shut it down. We need a wall and a law to make
children born of illegals NOT US Citizens!
"The Great Helmsman - Salt Lake City, UTFeb. 13, 2019 11:46 a.m.I’m not pleased with Representative Stewart."Came to say
this. Leaving satisfied.
All the federal workers who are voters in Davis and Weber County should all vote
Stewart out of office in 2020. It appears like he wants you to work and not
receive compensation. Remember, when your credit rating is hit or you lose your
house because you couldn't pay the mortgage during a government shutdown
that you have Stewart to thank! Lets work to elect democrats next
time! Get Educated
I’m not pleased with Representative Stewart.
