Beto O’Rourke recently questioned the modern'day relevance of the U.S. Constitution and whether the country should still be governed by “the same principles that were set down 230'plus years ago.” “I think that’s the question of the moment: Does this still work?” Mr. O’Rourke asked during a taped conversation with two friends, which he aired to thousands in response to President Trump’s Oval Office address to the American people about the border wall, The Washington Post reported Tuesday. “Can an empire like ours with military presence in over 170 countries around the globe, with trading relationships The Coup Against Trump Has Failed — Is the Worm About to Turn?

The entire enterprise from the beginning was always about defeating Trump '' either by planting smears in the media in 2016 to prevent his election or if that didn´t succeed, by doubling down on the investigation in an effort to keep the president from uncovering their election'year espionage malfeasance. But the honey'badger president didn´t care and said he did CNN legal analyst Areva Martin accuses David Webb of ‘white privilege’ before learning he’s black Wed, 16 10 2019 05:10:10 GMT http://www.Lucianne.com/thread.aspx/?artnum=961729 c7e809b4531f4677db0822f858b75d3804b663d4 Fox News, by Brian Flood Posted By: Maryland_Patriot- Wed, 16 10 2019 05:10:10 GMT It was a rough day for author and CNN legal analyst Areva Martin on Tuesday. Martin accused Sirius XM radio and Fox Nation host David Webb of “white privilege” during a segment on a radio program before he broke the news. “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black,” Webb said. The embarrassing moment occurred during a discussion about experience being more important than race when determining whether or not someone is qualified for a particular job. Freshman Democrats Turn on Pelosi Over Border Wall, Seek Deal with Trump Wed, 16 05 2019 05:05:20 GMT http://www.Lucianne.com/thread.aspx/?artnum=961728 00ca733beb1cf1c5a3022df01b22661c9879e8c1 Breitbart Politics, by Matthew Boyle Posted By: Maryland_Patriot- Wed, 16 05 2019 05:05:20 GMT Several freshman Democrat members of the new House of Representatives majority have turned on Speaker Nancy Pelosi in her steadfast refusal to fund President Donald Trump’s planned wall along the U.S. border with Mexico and are instead seeking for Democrats to cut a deal on the wall with Trump. The ongoing partial government shutdown, which affects a quarter of the federal government and is now the longest shutdown in the history of the United States, began late last year just before Christmas.

Documents have not been declassified as promised; letters by top lawmakers have gone unanswered with no consequence; and not one perpetrator in the biggest political scandal in history has been held accountable.

Weichert Posted By: earlybird- Wed, 16 56 2019 04:56:27 GMT The New York Times wants you to believe that President Trump “colluded” with Russian intelligence to swing the 2016 presidential election in his favor. A “breaking” story, released late last week, carried the conclusive headline: “F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia.” But the story is neither conclusive nor accurate. In fact, it elides that which both the president and his supporters have been arguing for nearly three years: the American Left has hijacked (Snip) Apparently, there were two inciting incidents that prompted the FBI to launch a caustic counterintelligence investigation.

It would appear purposeful Barr will re'balance the DC interests, and return the DOJ to a more ordinary level of corruption. In this way Barr pushes back the fulcrum tilting the DOJ away from the more violent weaponized lean in the past eight years.

And as with the prior two transcript leaks, we don’t get the raw information. So let me first, necessarily, reassert our CTH position on these “leaks”. Leaking is bad, period; in all directions.

Does this make the shutdown a bug … or a feature? Nancy Pelosi has asked Donald Trump to put off his State of the Union speech to the joint session of Congress until after the funding issues have been resolved: (Copy of Letter/Tweet) And with that, the new Speaker of the House just made the best case possible for a perpetual shutdown. Kidding! What I meant to say was that Nancy Pelosi has finally sounded a note of wisdom, at least in her reminder that presidents used to just deliver a report in writing to Congress.

Americans are ruled by a bureaucracy accountable to no one. The shutdown, however, may provide an opportunity to eliminate thousands of government jobs permanently, according to some conservative thinkers. The argument is that if a furlough goes longer than 30 days, the job can be eliminated. An essay senior official in the Trump administration explained what is going on in an anonymous article in the Daily Caller.

A number of newly'sworn'in Democrats have reportedly voiced frustration with the leaders within their own party, suggesting that they might be willing to at least open the door to negotiate and see what kind of a deal could result.

Rashida Tlaib (D'Mich.), who is Muslim, to a suicide bomber, the Sun Sentinel reported. “A Hamas'loving anti'Semite has NO place in government! She is a danger and [I] would not put it past her to become a martyr and blow up Capitol Hill,” Lima'Taub wrote in a Jan. 8 Facebook post, which linked to a petition demanding Tlaib be removed from Congress.

"Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re'opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re'opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th," Pelosi wrote in a letter to Trump Wednesday.

Following the team’s recent victory in the College Football Playoff National Championship, the president took to Twitter to invite the team to the White House to celebrate. I look forward to hosting, right out of the great State of South Carolina, the 2019 NCAA Football Champion Clemson Tigers at the White House on Monday, January 14th.

The U.S.'led coalition in Syria, Operation Inherent Resolve, confirmed in a tweet that, "U.S. service members were killed during an explosion while conducting a routine patrol in Syria today." A U.S. military official confirmed separately to CBS News senior national defense correspondent David Martin reports by Kurdish media outlets that at least two Americans were among the dead in the city of Manbij, not far from the Turkish border, after an explosion hit a coalition convoy.

Walls work where ever they are built — including in 77 countries. 2.) Democrats don’t care about open borders or the drug crisis or the crime by illegal aliens. The tweets had over 50,000 likes in two hours. Someone at Twitter must have forgotten to push the shadow'ban button during shift change. President Trump: There are now 77 major or significant Walls built around the world, with 45 countries planning or building Walls.

We’ve already taken important steps, but rather than work with us to make further progress, Democrats in Congress have refused to compromise on the wall, leading to the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. The American people deserve better. Only the willfully blind — or politically blinded — could fail to see the scope and scale of this crisis. The facts speak for themselves.

There will be no immediate layoffs (what the federal government calls reductions'in'force – or RIFs) if and when the current partial shutdown passes the 30 day mark in 4 more days. As I explained yesterday in Trump´s shutdown trap?, federal law requires RIFs when federal employees are furloughed more than 30 days.

But important elements of the story remain largely buried from public view.
