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.

Ten Accomplishments By John
Kelly At Homeland Security
Breitbart Big Government, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/29/2017 6:19:44     Post Reply
John Kelly reanimated the Department of Homeland Security during his six-month stay at the agency, which had been paralyzed by the easy-migration policies imposed by former President Barack Obama. His most skilled achievement was to push President Donald Trump’s pro-American policies forward while keeping good relations with the Hill Democrats. His main strategy was to remind Democrats that he was merely enforcing the laws they had already passed and to invite them to change their laws if they disliked his enforcement policies. He sidelined most of the top staff picked by Obama and allowed the department’s border and enforcement agents

Many people are saying that President Trump is crazy. Here are just some of the things that I believe show that the previous president was the crazy one: President Obama threatened to cut off education funds if schools didn´t allow boys to go into girls’ facilities if they felt like a girl. Anyone who not only thinks that it is OK for boys to expose their sex organs to girls but thinks the government should force everyone to allow it is off his rocker. He continually lied when saying people could keep their doctor and their plan and premiums would drop

It has been 10 days since Democrats received the glorious news that Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley would require Donald Trump Jr. and Paul Manafort to explain their meeting with Russian operators at Trump Tower last year. The left was salivating at the prospect of watching two Trump insiders being grilled about Russian “collusion” under the klieg lights. Yet Democrats now have meekly and noiselessly retreated, agreeing to let both men speak to the committee in private. Why would they so suddenly be willing to let go of this moment of political opportunity? Fusion GPS. That’s the oppo-research outfit behind

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) slammed President Trump´s decision to appoint Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly as his new chief of staff on Friday, saying the appointment "militarizes the White House." "By putting Gen John Kelly in charge, Pres Trump is militarizing the White House & putting our executive branch in the hands of an extremist," Lee tweeted. (Tweet) Lee did not offer any additional context as to her opinion on Kelly, a retired four-star Marine general who previously headed up U.S. Southern Command. Kelly, who served as Trump´s Homeland Security chief in the early months of his administration, will start

Ben Shapiro, Adam Carolla Call on

Instead of disinviting controversial speakers, college administrators should model civil disagreement for students, say Ben Shapiro and Adam Carolla. Shapiro, editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire, and Carolla, a comedian and radio host, testified Thursday before a joint subcommittee of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on campus challenges to free speech. “You can’t put students in a bubble and expect them to come out stronger,” said Carolla of administrators who disinvite or obstruct speakers in response to student protests. Shapiro had a similar take, saying, “a healthy nation requires a population ready to engage in open debate at any

Shock Poll Shows Kid Rock With A

Senate Primary
Daily Caller, by Alex Pfeiffer    Original Article

Popular musician Kid Rock, real name Robert Ritchie, has been flirting with a Senate run in Michigan and a poll out Friday shows him far ahead in the Republican primary and within the margin of error in the general election. Ritchie has yet to decide whether to run for office, and released a statement on Wednesday about all the speculation in which he announced he is starting a non-profit group to encourage voter registration. “One thing is for sure though…The democrats are ‘shattin’ in their pantaloons’ right now…and rightfully so!,” Richie said in the statement. “We will be scheduling a

What would you conclude if you voted for a candidate or a party because of a promise to repeal or change a law that you strongly felt was harmful and unjust, but once in office the party refused to do it? You might conclude, rightly, that those politicians didn’t really work for you, and the party didn’t care what you thought. That’s precisely the message Republicans have been sending their constituents throughout the Obamacare repeal fiasco. The failure of Senate Republicans to pass a so-called “skinny repeal” in the early hours of Friday is merely the latest instance of GOP

On October 24, a project that has been 80 years in the making and 20 years in the writing will be released in the form of a book titled, “Never Look at the Empty Seats,” a memoir of my life, my career, and my experiences and a wee bit of advice to those whippersnappers who would like to pursue a career I’ve devoted over 60 years of my life to. I know, I know, the title is kinda weird, so let me explain it. When you’re just starting out, trying to establish a career, if you’re truly serious about it,

You’re not the only one spending fewer summer weekends watching other people get married—but don’t worry, the weddings you’re still invited to might feel a little more special these days. Fewer Americans are getting married, and the ones who still are have scaled back their weddings. Their nuptials are becoming smaller, though not necessarily cheaper, affairs. (Graph) Many couples are waiting longer and longer to schedule their weddings. In 2015, the median first-time American bride was almost 28 years old and the median groom almost 30, according to the

Repair crews got their first look Friday at a damaged cable that caused a power outage on the Outer Banks. Residents have been in the dark since Thursday morning, when a construction crew working on the new Bonner Bridge inadvertently cut a transmission cable. Gov. Roy Cooper declared a state of emergency Thursday evening for the communities, and authorities asked all non-residents to leave the islands by noon on Friday. Laura Ertle, a spokeswoman for Cape Hatteras Electric Cooperative, said employees of the Roanoke, Virginia-based company that erected the cable on the original Bonner Bridge in 1995 would dig up the cable

On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.

Imran Awan was arrested as he attempted to flee the U.S. after wiring approximately $300,000 to Pakistan. Fox News is the only cable network covering this huge scandal. When Imran Awan was arrested he was carrying $12,000 in cash on him. His wife was carrying $12,000 of cash when she fled the country too.

President Trump responded to the Senate Republican´s inability to pass a skinny version of Obamacare´s repeal the only way he knows how: Twitter. (Tweet) Senate Republicans weren´t able to muster enough votes to pass their skinny repeal of Obamacare. Senators voted 49-51 shortly before 2:00 a.m. Friday morning. Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) cast a surprise "no" vote. He was joined by GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Susan Collins (Maine). The bill, titled the Health Care Freedom Act, would have repealed the individual insurance mandate. It would also have repealed the employer mandate for eight years.

WASHINGTON -- Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) today declared Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to have joined the ranks of late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) when it comes to greatness in Congress. The senator who was defeated by President Obama in his 2008 quest for the White House stepped in to cast the deciding vote to kill Senate Republicans´ last-gasp effort to repeal Obama´s signature healthcare legislation. Audible gasps arose from the Dem side of the chamber in the wee hours this morning when McCain walked forward and cast a loud "no" vote -- the 51st vote to kill a "skinny

Senator John McCain waited two years to get his revenge against Donald Trump for saying that McCain is not a war hero. But with a giant middle finger — or more precisely a thumb — McCain, perhaps assuming that he’ll never run for election again, showed Donald Trump that repealing and replacing Obamacare would not be the “so easy” venture that the great “deal-maker” promised. I understand that these two men don’t like each other. I understand that revenge is a dish best served cold. But by looking to hurt President Trump — which I have no doubt was one motivation

Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) were expected to vote against the "skinny repeal" -- a bare-bones repeal of only the individual and employer mandates as well as the medical device tax; the latter has drawn bipartisan criticism over the years.

Graham said his bill, which he will introduce next week, will block a president from firing the special counsel without a federal judge’s approval if that counsel is investigating the president or his administration, according to The Wall Street Journal.
