The Senate´s laziness wouldn´t
be accepted in any other job

Washington Examiner, by Rachel Bovard

Original Article

Just how lazy is the Senate? If you need just one metric to measure this, consider the following: The Senate has had just one amendment vote this entire year. Many outside observers chalk the Senate’s glacial pace and lack of debate up to polarization and gridlock. But a closer observation reveals that gridlock has little to do with it. Rather, laziness does. I’ve spent the better part of the last year writing about ways in which the Republican Senate wastes time: working 2.5 days a week, engaging in endless quorum calls, and allowing the Democrats to run roughshod over the

Comments:
Amen to that! That statement could apply to all of the drones in DC. The lack of will and expediency from McConnell really astounds me. You would think that since he is treated so well by Trump he would do more. There have been a number of articles written that state that congress has sent over many bills only for them to die in the senate. That body has become totally worthless. Of course isn´t helped because of the total obstruction from the filthy hack Schumer. His behavior is reprehensible.

It´s not so much laziness as it is the entitlement mentality of the elite. Even if they go to Washington with all the best intentions, the swamp, seems to either teach them that it is stupid to not get as much of the goodies available, or if they want to keep their self respect, and not participate, they get steamrolled by the good old boys, telling them how it´s done in the swamp. Yet their employers keep rehiring them and sending them back, until they die.......or decide to go home for good and take a long long hot shower to clean the swamp slime off themselves.

I would prefer the Senate and House take a Rip Van Winkle approach to their jobs, i.e. screwing around with my life. The Founders knew no law has EVER enhanced liberty, so they made it very difficult to make law. I support the Founders and their view of government.

President Trump is goal oriented and results driven! That is what business executives do, time is money!

Politicians in general want the “Issue” results are secondary!
DACA is exhibit one, budget exhibit number two, appointee confirmation, three Spacial Prosecutors , four, etc.
That is what they do, only the military and President Trump are results driven!
This historical, debating is a politician’s goal.

The worthless GOP were able to vote a bill in favor of net neutrality. It never ends. And the GOP Senate voted day one in favor of a special prosecutor to harass the new Republican President for the entirety of his term in office. That is the GOP Senate, and it is very warmly despised.

Washington Post, by Rachel Weiner    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/22/2018 1:06:33 PM     Post Reply
President Trump’s former campaign manager is calling for an investigation into a key lawyer on the special counsel team that is currently prosecuting him in two districts.

Mueller III’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. At the time, Weissmann led the Department of Justice’s criminal fraud division. Manafort’s lobbying on behalf of a pro-Russian political party in Ukraine had been under investigation by the Justice Department

After former Democratic IT aide Imran Awan allegedly threatened his stepmother not to talk to police, her email account was accessed in suspicious ways and a lawyer for one of Awan’s brothers found out she emailed the FBI on specific dates and lashed out at her: “You’re a liar, aren’t you?” Days after that, a bank account the stepmother controlled was almost completely drained through a payment to Imran’s brother, Abid Awan, bank records show — but she said she is too afraid to press criminal charges because she claims he has threatened her.

Holder: DOJ, FBI should

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Brett Samuels    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/21/2018 9:57:49 PM     Post Reply
Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday urged Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI officials to "simply say no" to President Trump´s demand for an expanded investigation into his claims of FBI wrongdoing as it relates to his campaign. "More DOJ norms being eroded. Trump-a SUBJECT of the investigation-wants access to material related to the inquiry," Holder tweeted. (Snip) His latest criticism of the president came as Trump and his allies have claimed, without evidence, that an FBI informant spied on his campaign for political purposes. On Sunday, Trump said he would demand the DOJ investigate the matter.

Francis made the comments to Juan Carlos Cruz, a Chilean victim of priestly sexual abuse who recently spent days with the pope at the Vatican to discuss his ordeal as the pontiff moves to tackle decades of coverups and ostracism of victims in the Chilean church, according to the Spanish newspaper El Pais.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry warned President Donald Trump Sunday that Democrats are not afraid to go against his “America First” policies. “We won’t win, any of us, ultimately, by retreating within our borders, by focusing on our own nations only, or by going it alone,” Kerry told those gathered at New York University’s Abu Dhabi’s commencement ceremony Sunday — a direct reference to the president’s “America First” trade and immigration policies. Kerry served as the secretary of state for former President Barack Obama. He also, notably, was one of the key negotiators for the administration when it was
