Trump raises stakes on government shutdown,
demands border wall funds in spending bill

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/21/2017 6:07:03 AM

The White House said Thursday that it wants to see money for President Trump’s border wall included in the spending bill Congress must pass next week — a demand Democrats said sours negotiations and makes a government shutdown more likely. The demands mark a reversal for the administration, which had been saying it found enough money to build prototypes this year and wouldn’t need a major infusion of cash until next year. But White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday that the wall and the money for more immigration agents are priorities.

Government shutdowns have become laughable scare tactics. They should live in fear that they will not be missed and we will make it permanent.

#3, what gets me is what happens when the furloughed ´non-essential´ gubmint employees eventually get back to work (so to speak).

But then a rule is passed so they get the back pay for the days they missed, instead of being docked that money. It´s like paid vacation that doesn´t come out of your leave balance. That´s inconceivable!

Shut it down. Let all of the ´non-essentials´ go home thinking they will get paid anyway( as happened in the past) and then send them their first unemployment checks stapled to a pink slip( and a nice note that says their position has been eliminated). Because it could and should be.

How Ann Coulter wowed GOP faithful in
Modesto. Why police were left smiling.
Modesto Bee (CA), by Kevin Valine    Original Article

Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter’s Friday evening speech at Modesto Centre Plaza drew hundreds of GOP faithful as well as dozens of demonstrators who lined the sidewalk and lawn outside the downtown convention center to show their support and disgust for Coulter. The demonstrators appeared evenly split into two camps. The protest — which appeared to reach about 100 people at its peak — also brought out the news media, with TV stations from Sacramento, San Francisco and Fox News sending crews. There also were lots of Modesto officers in the crowd and nearby on horseback, motorcycles and bicycles. Police Chief

The respected leader, founder of the ‘Arise France’ movement, would serve as French Prime Minister in a national government, Marine Le Pen confirmed this morning at a joint press conference. The founder of the eurosceptic and sovereigntist party, ‘Arise France’, who won 4.7% of last week’s first round vote in the French presidential election, last night endorsed Marine Le Pen and announced an alliance to save the country from ‘’financial and media interests’’ seeking to install their preferred candidate, Emmanuel Macron, to the Elysée Palace.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump says he hasn’t returned to his New York City home because “going back is very expensive for the country.” Trump tells Fox News in an interview Friday that he feels “guilty” when he returns to Trump Tower because authorities close surrounding streets and “I hate to see the New Yorkers with streets closed.” He says he goes to his clubs instead because they have “hundreds of acres” and streets stay open. But Trump says he’s always accused of “having fun” or playing golf at his clubs; he says he’s always working. The White House rarely

As President Trump reaches his 100-day mark in office, an unfriendly news media has done much to undermine his efforts. Trump voters appear to be ignoring it all, says Ford O´Connell, a political strategist and an adjunct professor at the George Washington University Graduate School of Political Management. “Employing a blitzkrieg-style deluge of misleading headlines, both online and in print, coupled with a heavy diet of 89 percent negative broadcast network news coverage of Trump, the groupthink of the liberal media bubble has tried mightily to portray President Trump’s first 100 days in office as the worst political disaster of

On Eve of Annual Media Dinner, Poll Finds
Americans Trust Trump More Than Media

Only a day before journalists are set to meet at their annual self-congratulatory dinner, a new poll finds that their intended customers, the American people, don’t trust them. Indeed, the poll finds Americans trust the Trump White House to tell the truth more than they do the media. The poll taken of 2,006 adults between April 23 and 26 is certainly bad news for the political media as 37 percent of respondents said they trust the Trump White House, while only 29 percent said they trust the media. Worse for the media, the day before their April 29 dinner, the

President Donald Trump pledged to never infringe on the 2nd Amendment during a speech at the National Rifle Association’s meeting in Atlanta, Ga., on Friday. “We all took an oath to preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States, and that means defending the 2nd Amendment. So let me make a simple to every one of the freedom-loving Americans in the audience today: as your president, I will never, ever infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms – never, ever,” Trump said.

More evidence accumulates that higher education has drifted off into its own universe, utterly detached from common sense and the society and polity upon which it depends for survival. Alex Griswold reports in the Free Beacon: A group of Yale University graduate students announced Tuesday evening that they would be undertaking a hunger strike to pressure the administration into granting them better union benefits. The strike is taking place in front of University President Peter Salovey’s home. "Yale wants to make us wait and wait and wait … until we give up and go away," the eight members of the

There goes the neighborhood. The neighborhood known as Martha’s Vineyard, I mean. The move of John Forbes Kerry from Nantucket — what a boon for ACK! One thing is certain. This summer, with Kerry gone, you’ll be hearing the eternal question asked a lot less often on Nantucket. “Do you know who I am?” But things will never be the same on Brant Point, once Kerry’s second wife’s first husband’s trust fund unloads the mansion on Hulbert Avenue.

It seems as if New York Times columnist David Brooks has crawled back from the Antifa ninja play warrior resistance limb he went out on right after the last election and has decided that he can now just barely tolerate the crease in the pants of President Donald Trump. His April 28 column has announced that he is dialing back his "Outrage Level 11" Trump derangement syndrome down to a mere level 3 or 4 on the outrage scale. You’ve got to give him credit — Donald Trump is a lot more adaptable than many of his critics. Many of

California AB 60 driver’s license holders — who are admittedly in the country illegally by virtue of applying for this class of license — are concerned that the Trump administration may use their AB 60 licenses to identify them for deportation, according to an AP story picked up by Oregon Live. According to Jessica Gonzalez, spokeswoman for the Dept. of Motor Vehicles (DMV), illegal aliens in California have nothing to fear. She told the AP that although the department makes “databases available to law-enforcement entities,” that information would not include the legal status of driver’s license holders.

So how much of our money did Obama ship to the terrorist regime in Iran? We hear $150 billion. We are not sure. Could be a dollar less, a dollar more. We’ll never know for sure. That’s because his entire administration operated in the dark. That’s how he governed and that’s how he got himself elected, in lies and in stealth, and the news media did the rest. They covered for him. They let him get away with murder – and in this case, that is not a cliché, it’s fact. Today, in eye-popping news, we learn, from the New York Post via

Saturday marks President Trump’s 100th day in office, and to celebrate the occasion he got a bit too candid in an Oval Office interview with Reuters. Obviously certain elements of being president are pretty fun, but President Trump has discovered that it isn’t all playing with trucks and pressing a button that makes Cokes appear. Sometimes there’s work to be done, and as it turns out being leader of the free world is a lot harder than running a fake university and playing a caricature of a rich person on TV.“I loved my previous life.

Mayor Catherine Pugh, speaking at a news conference, explained she went to the FBI’s Baltimore office for extra agents to join with police officers in combating a skyrocketing murder count, reports CNN. “Murder is out of control. There are too many guns on the streets. We’re looking for all the help we can get,” Pugh said. The city already has 101 murders for the year, a number not seen in almost 20 years.

He has floated some conspiracy theories for years, but now President Donald Trump will get to play a crucial role in the long-running saga over the government´s Kennedy assassination records. The 1992 JFK Assassination Records Collection Act, signed by President George H.W. Bush, set a 25-year timetable for declassification of assassination records dealing with President Kennedy. The law set up a single collection of records at the National Archives, and set up a process for declassification. The law required the release of all government records dealing with the assassination within 25 years – with the exception of those the president certifies for

When someone is honestly 55 percent right, that’s very good and there’s no use wrangling. And if someone is 60 percent right, it’s wonderful, it’s great luck, and let him thank God. But what’s to be said about 75 percent right? Wise people say this is suspicious. Well, and what about 100 percent right? Whoever says he’s 100 percent right is a fanatic, a thug, and the worst kind of rascal. — An old Jew of Galicia In the final stretch of last year’s presidential race, Hillary Clinton and her team thought they were, if not 100 percent right, then very close.
