2020 Dems pose a big
dilemma for Schumer

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Alexander Bolton and Amie Parnes

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/17/2018 8:23:50 AM

Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer’s (N.Y.) efforts to unify Democrats and prevent a shutdown are complicated by lawmakers with presidential hopes who are pushing for a hard-line stance against any short-term spending measure that doesn’t protect certain young immigrants from deportation. Senate Democrats such as Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Kamala Harris of California have signaled they will not support a short-term spending bill that leaves the fate of these immigrants, often called Dreamers, up in the air. All three potential presidential candidates, along with two others, Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders

Comments:
As usual Dems have no interest in solving a problem. They want to keep it alive as a campaign wedge issue for years on end.

The dems have nothing. This will on be their head. Does anyone even care if the government shuts down?

Look up the history of government "shutdowns." This is really not so big of a deal. Essential services do not stop and the boogie-man does not crawl out from under the bed. It is, however, intensely hyped by the media and snowflakes may melt down, but the world will still turn on its axis.

New York - Former Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has hit out at Russian President Vladimir Putin, describing him as the leader of a “white supremacist and xenophobic movement” which is designed to “weaken America’s traditional alliances and undermine democracy.” The former secretary of state did not mince words when discussing the Mr Putin during a lecture at Trinity College Dublin, and declared that Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election - which is the subject of multiple investigations in the US Congress and the FBI - as a "clear and present danger" to Western democracy.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Colorado Parks and Wildlife is urging people to avoid touching baby wildlife after its Colorado Springs office received nine fawns in just 10 days. In a tweet posted Friday, CPW’s southeast office said the ninth fawn was turned in by two people who didn’t have details about the animal’s past. “It is clearly far too attached to humans. Headed for rehab in Wetmore,” CPW said. (Tweet) The agency said most of the nine fawns are perfectly healthy and should have never been touched by humans. CPW posted a second video with the hashtag “#LeaveBabyWildlifeAlone.” The video

The boycott-Trump movement has resurged. Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the #GrabYourWallet hashtag in October 2016 to encourage people seeking a way to take concrete action against Donald Trump to boycott companies — large and small — that do business with his family. As a result, brands such as Nordstrom, Jet.com, and Gilt dropped Ivanka Trump´s fashion line last year. While Coulter has remained steadfast in her quest to encourage the other 62 retailers, nonprofits, and even a movie produced by Harvey Weinstein to ditch Trump products, the issue has peaked once more among consumers and

   

 

  


 
Michael Cohen throws cold water on
Tom Arnold´s claims that they´re
working together to take down Trump
Business Insider, by David Choi    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 6/23/2018 8:37:13 AM     Post Reply
Comedian Tom Arnold served up a veiled warning to President Donald Trump while hinting that he and Michael Cohen, Trump´s longtime personal attorney, were teaming up to take down the president. "Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, I´m spending the weekend hanging out with Michael Cohen," Arnold told CNN anchor Poppy Harlow on Friday. "And there´s a lot going on. You´ve disrespected [Cohen] and his family, and there´s a lot going on." Harlow pressed Arnold for specifics and asked whether Cohen, who is under criminal investigation on suspicion of campaign-finance violations, bank fraud, wire fraud, and illegal lobbying, was cooperating with law-enforcement

´Abolish ICE!´ is the new rallying
cry for progressive Democrats

WASHINGTON — Fueled by outrage over the Trump administration´s immigration policies, a small but growing number of progressive Democratic candidates are signing onto a nascent effort to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). It’s a radical idea and one that was confined to the fringes just months ago in a party that has historically balanced calls for better treatment of migrants with support for stronger border security and enforcement. But as an emboldened left challenges old assumptions about everything from health care to jobs, doing away with ICE has become the latest issue left-wing insurgents can

TIME Stands By Erroneous Crying Girl
Cover Story Because Of Its Propaganda Value

TIME magazine is standing by a cover photo and story critical of Trump’s immigration policies that reporters exposed Friday as factually incorrect, wildly misleading, and lacking important context. The cover features a 2-year-old Honduran girl sobbing as she looks up at Trump, with the words “Welcome to America.” Inside, TIME reported the little girl was one of those separated from her mother because of the Trump administration’s zero tolerance policy on families crossing the border illegally. She was taken “screaming” from her mother by border agents, the report claimed. (Tweet) The photo and story made a big splash in the

Family Separation: It’s a
Problem for U.S. Citizens, Too

In May, when the outrage over the separation of migrant children from their parents was beginning to boil, President Trump’s secretary for Homeland Security shrugged off accusations that it was a “form of state terror.” After all, she said, “We do it every day in every part of the country.” On this point, the secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen, is right. Family separation is a fact of life here, happening hundreds — if not thousands — of times a day. “In the United States,” she said, “we call that law enforcement.” Advocates for criminal justice reform have argued that Americans appalled at

Sarah Sanders was kicked out of a Virginia restaurant with her family on Friday night because the manager did not want to serve her following the backlash over Trump´s child migrant separation policy, it has been claimed. Jaike Foley-Schultz, a server at the Red Hen in Lexington, said the White House Press Secretary lasted just two minutes in the restaurant until his boss asked her to leave. ´I just served Sarah Huckabee Sanders for a total of 2 minutes before my owner kicked her out along with 7 of her other family members,´ he posted on Facebook.

Stephanie Wilkinson was at home Friday evening — nearly 200 miles from the White House — when the choice presented itself. Her phone rang about 8 p.m. It was the chef at the Red Hen, the tiny farm-to-table restaurant that she co-owned just off Main Street in Lexington, Va. Sarah Huckabee Sanders had just walked in and sat down, the chef informed her. “He said the staff is a little concerned. What should we do?” Wilkinson told The Washington Post. “I said I’d be down to see if it’s true.” It seemed unlikely to her that President Trump’s press secretary

Former Fox News contributor George Will says voters must punish Republican “poodles” during the midterm elections to “quarantine” the president. An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of

It´s come to this: according to some, people should be picking their casual dining choices based on their politics. NPR published an opinion piece by writer Monique Truong that claims in the headline that it is "hypocrisy" for administration members who support President Trump´s way of handling the long-ignored border crisis to eat at Mexican restaurants. These are people who work for the president, of course, so they are essentially being taken to task for doing their jobs. Truong considers recent forays to Mexican food dining establishments by administration policy adviser Stephen Miller and
