House-Passed Gov’t Funding Bill Fails In Senate Triggering Gov’t Shutdown

The Senate failed to pass a cloture vote on a House-passed continuing resolution late Friday evening, just before government funding levels were set to expire.

Democrats withheld their votes over a lack of an agreement on a legislative fix to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program — the Obama-era initiative that extended temporary legal status to foreign nationals who illegally entered the country as minors — leaving GOP leadership short of the 60 votes needed to send the measure to the president’s desk.

Crazy Pelosi Brags About Protecting DREAMERS After Senate Democrats Block Funding in Favor of Illegal Aliens

The House budget resolution failed a cloture vote in the Senate on a largely party line vote, 50 to 49.

Tonight, on the eve of the first anniversary of his inauguration, President Trump earned an ‘F’ for failure in leadership.

“President Trump and Congressional Republicans’ obsession with passing a tax scam to benefit the wealthiest and corporations has blinded them to their responsibilities to the American people. Despite controlling the House, Senate and White House, the Republicans are so incompetent, so negligent that they couldn’t get it together to keep government open.

Flashback to when Obama weaponized 2013 government shutdown

High profile national monuments and parks were “Barrycaded” so that TV cameras could show veterans and others being turned away.

“I’ve been through some of these before,” he said. “The Democrats are opposing a bill that they don’t oppose! … They don’t oppose anything in the bill, but they are opposing the bill.”

“I just want to let everybody know,” he said about the potential government shutdown:

“We do not want this, we do not want a shutdown, but if Mr. Schumer insists on it, he is in a position to force this on the American people.”

Jim Acosta of CNN embarrassed himself by suggesting Republicans could avoid a shutdown because they control the House, Senate and Presidency. He knew, of course, that 60 votes are needed in the Senate.

Sanders Denies Attacking Republicans for Shutdown in 2013, Isn’t Corrected by MSNBC

Associated Press, NYT Torpedo Democratic Narrative On Government Shutdown

Democrats have a) have longed called government shutdowns irresponsible, directing their attacks at Republicans; b) they’ve said that tying immigration to budgetary matters is just an exercise in chaos. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that in 2013 during the debt ceiling negotiations. The latter is the audible here. Democrats want a DACA deal first. It’s dealing with greedy, spoiled children when it comes to the Democrats. They’re getting everything they want.

McConnell on Senate Floor: This Government Shutdown Was 100 Percent Avoidable

“A government shutdown was 100 percent avoidable. Completely avoidable. Now it is imminent,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on the Senate floor following the vote. “Perhaps across the aisle some of our Democratic colleagues are feeling proud of themselves, but what has their filibuster accomplished? . . . The answer is simple: Their very own government shutdown.”

Shut Down Showdown

No, not THAT shut down. THIS shut down:

House Passes Short-Term Spending Bill, Legislation Faces Uphill Battle In Senate

The House passed a continuing resolution (CR) along party lines Thursday after GOP leadership struck a last-minute deal with the House Freedom Caucus ensuring they had the votes.

Following the vote House GOP leadership called on Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to pass the measure.

“Sen. Schumer, do not shut down the federal government. Do not jeopardize funding for our military and for our national security. Do not jeopardize funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program,” House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters Thursday evening. “It is risky. It is reckless. And it is wrong.”

The Blame Game, Senate shutdown showdown edition

Senate GOP leaders prepared to force Democrats into a series of uncomfortable votes, aimed at splitting their ranks by pitting moderates from states that Trump won against party leaders and the handful of outspoken liberals considering a run for the presidency.

Democrats Just Admitted Their Goal is to Shutdown the Government

But according to a Democrat aide who spoke to NBC News, the goal is for Democrats to come up with enough votes to stop the funding measure from going through. In other words, they just admitted their goal is to shutdown the government, not to avert it as they’ve been claiming. They’ve also put the brakes on any kind of compromise that doesn’t include amnesty for illegal aliens currently covered by DACA.

[CtH: Wait, what?  Didn’t they once upon a time tell us that a govt shut down was the MOST TERRIBLE THING EVER?]

3.6 Million DREAMERS in US — Will Flip Florida, Arizona, Georgia, and North Carolina From Red to Blue!

THIS IS WHY THE DEMOCRATS ARE PUSHING SO HARD FOR AMNESTY FOR ILLEGALS.

A recent study of DACA Dreamers found that most of these new Democrat voters reside in Republican states.  Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and Democrats are determined to pass amnesty for this group of illegal aliens.

DACA amnesty could give Arizona, Florida, Georgia and North Carolina to the Democrat Party.  And then once a Democrat is elected they will open the borders to millions more third world immigrants to vote Democrat.

This is what Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and Democrats want to happen.

GOP Senators Send Trump ‘Amnesty-Or-Shutdown’ Threat

THIS PATHETIC LITTLE PISSANT IS TRYING TO LEAD HIS OWN PARTY TO RUIN.

The hostage-taking is being fronted by a group of GOP legislators, led by Sen. Jeff Flake and Sen. Lindsey Graham, who announced Wednesday they would not allow 2018 funding for the Pentagon until Trump approves an amnesty, saying:

To the defense hawks, the only way you’re going to get your money is to deal with immigration rationally.

Democrats and their media allies are eager to let Graham and his GOP allies take the leading role in this shutdown-or-amnesty fight.

Pro-amnesty Democrats are minimizing their visibility by pretending they will oppose a budget deal until the Congress funds various spending programs—such as community health centers, and disaster aid—which the GOP majority is largely willing to fund

USA Today: Amnesty Debate Is About 3.6 Million ‘Dreamers,’ not Just 800,000 DACA Illegals

The article’s headline was: “There are 3.6M ‘DREAMers’ — a number far greater than commonly known.”

Many pro-amnesty legislators — and many newspaper outlets — routinely conflate the very different ‘DACA’ and ‘Dreamer’ terms. This conflation allows them to suggest that the Democrats’ huge DREAM Act amnesty for 3.6 million illegals — and eventually, their parents and chain-migration relatives — is a smaller amnesty for the ‘DACA’ illegals, whose estimated population ranges from 670,000 to 800,000.

Dems Want a Shutdown To Get Off the Subject of the Tax Cuts

Just wait until government workers are sent home, when national monuments are temporarily shuttered, when Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon are closed. We will see all the sad stories on TV about how the evil, heartless Republicans shutdown the government and ruined these people’s lives. It’s only a matter of time and the media is champing at the bit right now to hammer Republicans.

Trump Admin Won’t Hold Parks And Monuments Hostage If Government Shuts Down

During the last government shutdown in 2013, the Obama administration completely closed down more than 400 parks and monuments across the country. The administration blamed the shutdown and forced furlough of 20,000 U.S. Parks Service employees on the closures.

The move was widely criticized by Republicans accusing then-President Barack Obama of unnecessarily making the shutdown more upsetting to Americans than was necessary.

Trump WH: We’re Not Going to Politicize a Shutdown the Way Obama Did

Short called it “incredibly frustrating” that the regular appropriations process doesn’t work and Congress continues to lurch from one continuing resolution to another. “We submitted a budget to Congress last February; we’re now in mid-January without a spending bill,” Short said.

Senate Democrats have refused to proceed to normal appropriations bills, all 12 of which were passed on time by the House.

Short noted that appropriations bills need 60 Senate votes to pass, so 10 Democrats would need to join Republicans Friday to keep the government funded for another month. “So the reality is that those ten votes we need to get to 60 is what’s basically bringing the government to a shutdown and stopping funding of our troops.”

OUT!!

It seems like every time the president allows access to the media whores, he knows they’re going to make clowns of themselves. And every time, they oblige. They truly can’t help themselves. Jim Acosta, the pathetic Walter Cronkite wannabe, once again showed himself to be the empty soul, trying desperately to be taken seriously. I think he’d have had his credential pulled long ago if not for the fact Trump likes to mess with him and Sarah Sanders is really good at pimp slapping this little turd.

Pres. Trump to CNN’s Jim Acosta: ‘Out’

The veteran reporter along with other members of the press, were allowed inside the Oval Office during a meeting between Pres. Trump and Nursultan Nazarbayev the president of Kazakhstan.

When White House press aides started asking the press to leave, Acosta, whose contentious relationship with the Trump White House has been well-documented, tried to get in a few final questions.

“Did you say you want more people to come into the country from Norway, Mr. President?” Acosta asked.

“Thank you very much, everyone,” Trump responded.

Acosta asked the question again, to which Trump responded in a lower, softer voice, “I want people to come in from everywhere.”

“Just Caucasian or white countries, sir? Or do you want people to come in from other parts of the world…people of color?” Acosta asked.

The president pointed at Acosta and said: “Out.”

They need to look at revoking the White House press credentials of CNN’s Jim Acosta.

Here’s another installment of, ‘hey everybody, Trump’s a racist’ from our friends at FAKE NEWS CNN.

Disgraceful. And Trump doesn’t want any of it from Acosta

Acosta Suggests WH Doctor Could Be Withholding Information About Trump’s Health

CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta asked Physician to the President Navy Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson if he was withholding negative information about the president’s health from reporters during Tuesday’s press briefing.

Jackson assured Acosta that there was no information about Trump’s health being withheld, negative or otherwise.

“I can promise there is nothing that I am withholding from you. I can tell you, I’ve done the last four or five of these,” Jackson replied. “I’ve been involved in probably the last six or seven of these and this is hands down more information that has been put forth by any other assessment to date.”

DHS Secretary Asks to Move on After Four Democrats Ask about Sh**hole Comments

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen expressed a desire to “move forward and discuss ways in which we can protect our country,” during her testimony before the Judiciary Committee Tuesday after being asked for the fourth time about vulgar language reportedly used in an immigration meeting last week with President Trump.

“At any point in that conversation on Thursday did the President of the United States use a four-letter word beginning with s in combination with other words or alone that you heard?” Sen. Blumenthal asked.

“Sir, respectfully, I have answered this,” she replied. “I’ve been very patient with this line of questioning. I’m here to tell you about the threats our country faces and the needs and authorities that are needed by the Department of Homeland Security. I have nothing further to say about a meeting that happened over a week ago. I’d like to move forward and discuss ways in which we can protect our country.”

Democrats: Trump must capitulate on DACA “to prove you’re not prejudiced or bigoted”

Trump denied using the term, and is backed up by Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who were at the same meeting and dispute Durbin’s account.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was at that meeting also. She testified today before a Senate committee which included Durbin.

Durbin fell flat on his face when Nielsen testified she did not remember Trump using the “s***hole” word during the meeting, and that Trump did not have a “specific categorization of countries in Africa.”

NJ Senator Cory Booker then went ballistic, berating Nielsen and accusing her of lying, your “silence and amnesia is complicit.”

The questioning of Nielsen, and Booker’s theatrics, are part of a concerted Democrat effort to turn DACA into a racial issue if Democrats don’t get their way.

It’s all a charade that was laid bare by Chuck Schumer today, who demanded Trump get on board Democrat DACA demands or be labeled a racist:

“If you want to begin the long road back to prove you’re not prejudiced or bigoted, support the bipartisan compromise … One that was aimed at meeting the concerns you voiced,” Schumer said, noting it was negotiated by three Republicans and three Democrats. “This may be the last train leaving the station. President Trump needs to get on board.”

HOW IS THIS NOT A THREAT?

This was a line of attack also used by Durbin:

Cory Booker ‘seething with anger’ as he yells at DHS chief Kirstjen Nielsen

“I had tears of rage,” Booker bellowed at Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen in reference to when he first heard of Trump’s “shithole countries” remark last week.

“And for you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss the questions of my colleagues, with tens of millions Americans hurting right now because they’re worried about what happened in the White House …”

Journos Unable To Accept Results Of Trump’s Physical Exam

Journalists have long questioned the president’s mental health and fitness for office, but Dr. Jackson debunked any notion that Trump is unhealthy and called his mental health “excellent.”

However, reporters are still unwilling to accept that nothing is wrong with the president and have taken to Twitter to express their displeasure with Dr. Jackson’s assessment of Trump.

CNN’s Brian Stelter, who routinely talks about Trump’s fitness, wrote that Trump passing a cognitive exam has nothing to do with being “unfit.”

“Someone could be sharp as a tack, but still unfit,” Stelter claimed.

MSNBC’s Mika Wants ‘Small Crowd’ For Trump’s State Of The Union

DC Mayor Addresses How High School Grads All Got Diplomas Without Meeting Requirements
 An investigation by WAMU and NPR has found that Ballou High School’s administration graduated dozens of students despite high rates of unexcused absences. We reviewed hundreds of pages of Ballou’s attendance records, class rosters and emails after a district employee shared the private documents. Half of the graduates missed more than three months of school last year, unexcused. One in five students was absent more than present — missing more than 90 days of school.

To add insult to injury, the majority of Ballou’s 2017 graduates missed more than six weeks of school. One teacher recalls seeing kids in the 12th grade that couldn’t read and write.

Local viewers were skeptical and blasted the school system and D.C. leadership in the comment section.

“Dr. Reeves should be prosecuted,” one commenter said.

“Revoke every diploma of every student who failed to meet grad requirements,” another wrote. “Otherwise this is a cruel joke that will have a lasting impact on every DCPS graduate.”

40 Percent Of Kids Now Born To Single Moms—Up 700 Percent Since 1960

A recent report from the Social Capital Project reveals that the American family is disintegrating, fast. Fully 40 percent of mothers are currently unmarried.
This is partly due to the increasing acceptance in out-of-wedlock births. But, as the authors point out, this rise has a few more concrete explanations, such as: increased unwed promiscuity, fewer “shotgun marriages” to pregnant single women, and increasing delayed marriage/rising divorce.

AZ Sen candidate: Your “clean DACA bill” isn’t happening
McSALLY IS A FORMER FIGHTER PILOT RUNNING FOR FLAKE’S SENATE SEAT

Major news outlets are already sounding the alarm about a possible government shutdown, assuming that a “clean” DACA bill is the hill that Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi want to die on this week.

This seems particularly true of Arizona Congresswoman (and newly announced Senate candidate) Martha McSally. She was making the rounds on cable news this week, letting the minority party know that they need to pack the “clean” bill idea away because it’s not gonna happen.

Fox News tweeted the video of that exchange for everyone yesterday.

This wasn’t a particularly new position for McSally, who has been solid on immigration issues from the beginning. She was also out with a similar warning during an interview last week, when it might have actually done some good had the Democrats been listening.

When They’re Out of Power They’re Just Funny

Being a Democrat means you don’t need a conscience or a moral compass. You cater to the ignorant, the lazy, and the morally reprehensible. You blatantly lie to them. Most of them know it and they don’t care. They are motivated by greed,ignorance, and hate. You stand for nothing except enriching yourself at the expense of the the law-abiding people of this country who work and pay the taxes you buy votes with.

When they’re in power, like the dark days of the Obama reign of terror, they specialize in spreading misery to all quarters. Times like these, when they’re relegated to comic relief, they can display a particular pathos born of desperation to be relevant. They will return to the throne one day, but until then they’re just fun to watch.

Frederica Wilson Joins Dems In Boycotting Trump’s State Of The Union Address

“For the first time since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president’s State of the Union address,” Wilson said in a statement. “I have no doubt that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump’s address will be full of innuendo, empty promises, and lies.”

The collective IQ at the SOTU just skyrocketed

As for Frederica Wilson, the gobs of attention she got for exploiting the wife of a fallen soldier has faded away – an easily forgotten embarrassing memory.

So naturally she thinks her next ticket to cable news is announcing she too will skip Trump’s SOTU address.

Black unemployment is at an all-time low – falling to below 7% for the first time ever.  And the primary beneficiaries of President Trump stemming the flow of unskilled illegal aliens into the country are black Americans.  Now you would think that Frederica, John and Maxine would be more focused on the constituents in their districts than flooding the country will unskilled, cheap labor.  But for the Democrat Party, all that matters are illegal aliens.

American blacks need to understand that they have been cast aside.  Parasites suck the life out of a host then move on.  And the Democrat parasites in Congress have drained all advantage out of the black vote. Now they’ve moved on to illegals.

Since they have nothing to show for their endless years in Congress, all they have left is showboating and demagoguery.  So they put on petty displays for attention and hurl slanderous attacks at the President — all to mask their years and years of inaction.
So go ahead, stay home, you useless blobs of irrelevance.

Dems ‘Terrified’ of Trump Cracking Black Vote, Civil Rights Leader Says

With infamous race card losing its potency, guests on ‘The Laura Ingraham Show’ say president’s program threatens old alliances.

“[Democrats] are terrified that this president gets somewhere north of 10 to 15 percent of the black vote,” said Niger Innis, spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) (pictured above right, in red tie, in the image on this page). “And they’re terrified because, if that happens, then it is first of all, mathematically, electorally impossible for a Democrat to win.”

Innis added, “But more than that, it is because they are so invested in having a monopoly of the black vote, and that monopoly is based on blacks as forever seeing themselves as victims, forever seeing themselves as victims of racism, of economic depravity of the white man.”

The battle to shut down Obama’s presidential center

What initially started out as a library has morphed into a 20-acre private “center,” and some environmentalists and historians are unhappy with the Obama Foundation’s plans to swoop in and take over a national historic place.

The Obama Foundation originally said it would house a presidential library on the property and vowed to have the National Archives oversee the facility because of its placement on public land. But that’s no longer the case, and some are balking at the change in plans.

Surprise: The States That Hemorrhaged Population Fastest in 2017 Were…

Some of the politicians objecting most loudly to the GOP tax reform law were Democrats from high tax blue states, whose constituents for years have been somewhat insulated from their exorbitant state and local tax bills via an ability to write them off as a federal tax deduction.  Under the new law, those who itemize (a small fraction of taxpayers to begin with) will only be able to deduct up to $10,000 in SALT-related (property tax) expenses. This will expose some of them, especially those in upper-income brackets, to the true costs of living in tax happy jurisdictions. These people make up the lion’s share the roughly five percent of taxpayers who stand to see a net tax increase next year — whereas 80 percent of all taxpayers, and 91 percent of middle class earners will get a cut.

US Military Members Receive Biggest Pay Bump Since 2010

Military members will see their paychecks rise by the largest percent increase since 2010 this week.

At the end of December, President Donald Trump, by way of executive order, mandated a 2.4% pay hike for uniformed service members and a 1.9% raise for federal workers. The Trump administration’s initial budget blueprint called for a 2.1% pay increase, while the House and Senate suggested the 2.4% figure, which was eventually adopted by the president.

Tom Cotton: ‘Let’s See How’ Shutting Down Government Over DACA Amnesty ‘Works Out for’ Democrats

Cotton, however, warned that if Democrats were to shut down the government over amnesty, it could have a detrimental impact on their re-election efforts in states like Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Montana.

Towards the end of 2017, Democrats in the House and Senate made similar threats that they would shut down the federal government over an amnesty for illegal aliens. But the left-wing party quickly backed off the plan when public opinion polls showed Americans were increasingly opposed to a shutdown over a year-end amnesty that would further suppress the wages of American workers.

Democrats would have us believe removing these people is inhumane.  What’s inhumane is ignoring laws we don’t like and vigorously enforcing those that we do.  It’s a tragedy of justice, and it creates an operational double standard that is destroying our nation while incentivizing bad actors from around the world to take advantage of us.

Trump Administration Plans To Help States Implement Work Requirements for Medicaid

Kentucky has just received approval from the Trump administration to implement their work requirements, which mirror their requirements for food stamps. There are 650,000 Medicaid beneficiaries in Kentucky. Many of these individuals do not have any earned income and do not work at all. Under the new requirements, these beneficiaries will have to either work, train, or volunteer for 20 hours a week in order to receive benefits.

According to research from the Foundation for Government Accountability, the number of Medicaid beneficiaries has more than doubled since 2000. Now 75 million are enrolled in the program, which includes 28 million able-bodied adults. In addition, 52 percent of Medicaid beneficiaries that are able-bodied do not work.

CNN Anchor Alisyn Camerota Brought To Tears Over Trump “Shithole” Remark

Economists Agree: Trump, Not Obama, Gets Credit For Economy

The Wall Street Journal asked 68 business, financial and academic economists who was responsible for the strengthening of the economy, and most “suggested Mr. Trump’s election deserves at least some credit” for the upturn.

A majority said the president had been “somewhat” or “strongly” positive for job creation, gross domestic product growth and the rising stock market.

COVFEFE!! Dow Reaches 26,000 Points!… Up 1,000 Points in Just SEVEN Days

President Trump’s first year in office resulted in the greatest year in stock market history. The Dow ended up nearly 5,000 points for the year which was the highest increase in the Dow’s more than 100 year history. The Dow reached all-time new highs a record 71 times in 2017, breaking the record for the most all-time highs in a calendar year set in 1995.

NYT Officially Designates Trump A Racist, And Nobody Cares

The New York Times wants to make it official: President Donald Trump is a racist.  On Friday, the editorial board of America’s most influential paper asserted there was no doubt of that.

The editorial was in response to Trump reportedly asking why America takes in so many immigrants from “shithole” countries instead of places like Norway.  “Where to begin?” the Times’ editorial board collectively sighed when reflecting on Trump’s statement. “How about with a simple observation: The president of the United States is a racist.”

It shouldn’t be doubted that folks like Charles Blow and others in the media genuinely believe Trump is a racist for saying “shithole” countries and criticizing illegal immigrants in colorful language. But they aren’t just saying what they believe to get it off their chest.
The commentators wanting Trump to be certified as a racist understand the power of that charge and how it has played out in politics in the past.

Oops!

Hawaii, the 50th state in our union, is a liberal paradise. Voting Republican there is considered a felony. In this hard left Valhalla everything is run top to bottom by Democrats. That’s why it is disingenuous that after someone mistakenly hit the wrong button to sound a false alarm of an impending nuclear attack, the knee-jerk assclowns on the Left blamed Donald Trump.

‘He feels really bad’: Civil Defense employee who sparked terror in Hawaii by accidentally triggering ballistic missile warning will be ‘retrained’ say officials after thousands fled to bomb shelters

  • The alert was issued to residents’ phones at 8.07am on Saturday morning.
  • It told them to seek shelter and warned of an ‘inbound ballistic missile threat’.
  • It took 38 minutes for a second phone alert to be issued across the state.
  • By then, terrified residents had flocked to shelters and into their garages.
  • Civil Defense employee accidentally hit alert, was unaware until his phone got it.
  • An FCC investigation into the incident is underway, officials said.

EMA Administrator Vern Miyagi (left) and Hawaii Governor David Ige (right) apologized for the error at a press conference Saturday afternoon
IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING WHATEVER HAPPENED TO MR. MIYAGI

Klein: For 38 Terrifying Minutes, Hawaii Experienced Israeli Life under Rocket Threat

GOOD POINT

For thirty-eight terrifying minutes on Saturday, Hawaii residents unfortunately experienced a sampling of life in Israel during recent wars here when Hawaiians received a mistaken emergency alert notification warning of a “ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii.”

Jim Carrey, Jamie Lee Curtis Lash Out At President Trump Over Hawaii Nuke Scare

Carrey tweeted about a half-hour later, writing along with posting an image of a mushroom cloud that Trump will bring about a global nuclear holocaust, “I woke up this morning in Hawaii with ten minutes to live. It was a false alarm, but a real psychic warning. If we allow this one-man Gomorrah and his corrupt Republican congress to continue alienating the world we are headed for suffering beyond all imagination. ;^\”

Democrat Tulsi Gabbard blames Trump for false missile alert in Hawaii

Hawaii’s nutty Rep. Tulsi Gabbard blamed Trump for the false missile alert in Hawaii that made millions panic. She says it’s his fault because he hasn’t done what a handful of presidents before him had not been able to do either – solve North Korea.

If there’s one thing you actually CANNOT blame Trump for is the mess in North Korea. Each president before Trump has kicked the can down the road, even as we had more and more signs that they were building up their nuclear and ICBM capabilities. Yes, it falls on Trump’s lap, but it’s not an easy thing to solve, and he’s certainly trying.

In any case, given that some idiot in Hawaii just “pressed the wrong button” and panicked millions, maybe Tulsi should look after her own in the state before casting aspersions on the prezzy.

False missile alert: So are we buying this “wrong button” story?

When Allahpundit was covering the breaking news of Oh My God We’re All Going To Die yesterday, panic slowly turned to relief, but those feelings gave way to a mixture of anger and confusion. What the heck happened? By the end of the article we learn that the rather tardy apology from the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency (HEMA) boiled down to one excuse… somebody pushed the wrong button.

Trump says DACA ‘is probably dead’ because of Democrats

President Trump in a tweet on Sunday said the Obama-era policy that protects young immigrants known as “Dreamers” is “probably dead” and blamed its demise on Democrats.

“DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don’t really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our Military.”

In his series of tweets, Trump also renewed his call for a “merit” based immigration system.

I, as President, want people coming into our Country who are going to help us become strong and great again, people coming in through a system based on MERIT. No more Lotteries! #AMERICA FIRST,” he said.

Trey Gowdy resigns as House Ethics Committee member

HIS COMMITTEE MEETS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. NO CAMERAS, NO KABUKI THEATER.
FOR ALL HIS THEATRICS NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE AND NEVER WILL. IT’S ALL FOR SHOW.

Gowdy faced criticism late last year after it was revealed that he used $150,000 in taxpayer dollars to settle a dispute with a former aide, who had accused the GOP congressman of firing him after he refused to focus his work on investigating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the Oversight Committee, said last month that it was “astonishing” Gowdy wouldn’t meet with a whistleblower who claimed to have information on former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Iranian Officials Blast Trump Over Threat To Pull Out From Nuclear Deal

THEY THINK TRUMP CANNOT PULL OUT OF THE PHONY DEAL BOZO GAVE UP SO MUCH TO GET SIGNED. THEY’RE WRONG. ANY TREATY HAS TO BE APPROVED BY CONGRESS… AND WE ALL KNOW HOW WELL OBAMA WORKED WITH CONGRESS, DON’T WE?

Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement that it would not accept any renegotiation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), otherwise known as the 2015 nuclear deal, and promised a response to new U.S. sanctions.

“While Trump is forced to carry out the binding measures included in the JCPOA, he is continuing his past years approach, and in order to show his hostility towards the great Iranian nation, he has put some Iranian and non-Iranian individuals on the sanctions list out of desperation under illegal, worn-out, and ridiculous pretexts so as to make up for at least part of his failures,” the statement reads.

New United Nations Boss Unveils Plan to Promote Global Mass Migration

THERE’LL BE NO MASS MIGRATION TO THE U.S. AS LONG AS TRUMP IS PRESIDENT.

Guterres, a former Socialist Party prime minister in his native Portugal, took over the top job at the UN on January 1st, having previously served as the institution’s High Commissioner for Refugees.

His article, titled ‘Migration can benefit the world. This is how we at the UN plan to help’, makes the bold claim that mass migration “powers economic growth, reduces inequalities and connects diverse societies”, in order to promote the Global Compact for Migration.

[CtH: When the U.N. says out loud that Muslim nations should accept immigrants, I’ll maybe possibly listen.]

McAuliffe Says He’d Deck Trump if Trump Got In His Space

McAuliffe, the Democratic governor of Virginia, is likely to run for president in 2020. That apparently would be the same year he might be facing assault charges.

Judicial Anarchy Over DACA

Another activist judge runs roughshod over the separation of powers.

Needless to say, President Trump was not happy with this latest example of judicial overreach.

It just shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case (such as DACA) always runs to the 9th Circuit and almost always wins before being reversed by higher courts,” President Trump tweeted, referring to the District Court judge from the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.

Protecting the national security of the citizens of the United States and concerns over whether Obama had overstepped the constitutional bounds of his executive authority by ordering DACA’s implementation in the first place play second fiddle in Judge Alsup’s mind to the welfare of immigrants in the country illegally and of the University of California at which they are students or staff outweigh any other considerations.

Notably, one of the plaintiffs in this case – Janet Napolitano, serving in her capacity as chancellor of the University of California – is using California taxpayers’ money to defend the constitutionally shaky DACA which she helped to create as Secretary of Homeland Security in 2012.

Friday Catch All

Been spending most of my days sleeping. Thought I’d clear some things out before I take another nap. Did I mention that retirement has its good points?

Brooklyn Assemblywoman Pamela Harris stole tens of thousands in Hurricane Sandy money for vacations, lingerie

As Coney Island neighbors and the rest of the city struggled with the massive 2012 devastation, Harris lined her pockets with cash meant to aid the hurricane’s newly homeless, a federal indictment charges.

Harris spent $10,000 on vacations, including a cruise ship getaway, and shopped at Victoria’s Secret with her dirty money, authorities charged Tuesday.

And she allegedly urged witnesses to lie to the FBI in a failed cover-up of her crimes.
Harris looted some $60,000 in state and federal funds in several scams, including Federal Emergency Management Agency money for “temporary housing assistance” after the hurricane, officials charged.

Harris, 57, is a former correction officer and previously served as head of a Coney Island non-profit. She was accused of stealing $34,000 in cash provided by the City Council to pay rent for her group.

NYC Mayor to sue “Big Oil” for causing Hurricane Sandy or something

Many people still foolishly blame things like lightning strikes, tornadoes, tsunamis and hurricanes on the random vagaries of fate or simply describe them as acts of God. But not the intrepid Mayor of New York City, who apparently also doubles as a sleuth in his spare time. He’s been investigating the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy for half a decade now, seeking out the cause of the storm. And now he’s cracked the case, determining that the lethal storm which wrecked large parts of the northeast was caused by a coalition of five energy companies. And by God, he’s suing them over it.

Report: Frustrated Trump asks senators, why are we letting people in from “sh*thole countries”?

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti. He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met yesterday.

And just an fyi, notice the source: a Democratic aide who wasn’t even in the meeting.
Three guesses that this gets pulled back or the real story comes out later. But in the meantime, they’ll spread the ‘source’ said story.

CNN Goes Off on a Sh*thole Sh*tstorm: Mentions “Sh*thole” at least 36 Times in One Night

On Thursday afternoon President Donald Trump asked a group of pro-amnesty senators why the US should welcome migrants from “sh*tholes” like Haiti, Central America or African nations.

It was a good question.

But Democrats, liberal media and global community were outraged that the president would use such an offensive term to describe the global community’s failed states.

The hosts and contributors on CNN went on a sh*thole sh*tstorm last night.  The word “sh*thole” was mentioned at least 36 times on CNN on Thursday

Dems Admit They Need Illegals For Their Votes

Leaked memo reveals they are fighting to make the DREAMer nightmare permanent.

Republicans may not be angels but they have never wielded compassion as a cudgel the way Democrats do. But this memo ought to end Democrats’ phony compassion shtick for all time. Power is the only thing that matters to them. They don’t care about America or Americans. They care only about winning. Honest observers have known this for years.
What did Democrats actually do this time to help solidify their image as the party of power over principle?

Democrats can’t win elections without cheating. They pushed the 1993 Motor-Voter law to make voter fraud easy to commit and difficult to prosecute. They oppose voter ID laws tooth-and-nail for the same reason. They changed immigration laws a long time ago so they could change the electorate by importing new voters.

Two cases with the United Auto Workers Union in Michigan and New Jersey had embezzling episodes that soared over $1 million. The Free Press added that at times, some people who have been tasked with looking after the books were simply not qualified for the job, some cases they were headed up by people who couldn’t balance their own checkbook.

“Bill of Love” Will Doom Trump

Donald Trump held an unprecedented meeting with leaders from both parties yesterday, had it televised, and invited the press. Had he gone on stage during the campaign and said “As far as amnesty, whatever the two parties come up with I’ll gladly sign,” he’d never have been elected. Maybe he has an ulterior motive that I’m too stupid to see but it seems that since Kelly and McMaster got rid of all his conservative advisers he’s started drifting left on many things. Stopping the immigation tsunami was one of the main reasons he was elected.

Trump Wants a “Bill of Love” on DACA
“We are here today to advance bipartisan immigration reform that serves the needs of the American families, workers and taxpayers. It’s DACA,” Trump said a meeting on DACA at the White House. “Maybe we can do something. We have a lot of good people in this room, a lot of people that have a great spirit for taking care of people we represent.”
“I have great confidence . . . if they come to me with things I’m not in love with, I’m going to do it because I respect them,” he said.
He does? Why?

Oh, I’m sorry, this is Trump.

Trump suggests 2-phase immigration deal for ‘Dreamers’
President Donald Trump suggested Tuesday that an immigration agreement could be reached in two phases — first by addressing young immigrants and border security with what he called a “bill of love,” then by making comprehensive changes that have long eluded Congress.
My head is spinning from all the things that were said by the president and others in that room in the course of an hour and a half,” said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. “But the sense of urgency, the commitment to DACA, the fact that the president said to me privately as well as publicly, ‘I want to get this done,’ I’m going to take him as his word.”

After Trump on-air immigration meeting, I hear that Amnesty Train a-comin’
Trump meeting with congressional leaders was both political genius and worrisome.
People got to watch him in action running a meeting and in control, the master of ceremonies presiding over the congressional leadership from both parties.
It must have killed CNN to have to admit Trump was in control:

So at many levels, it was a genius political move.
BUT, BUT, BUT
As I was watching it, all I could keep thinking was, “here comes amnesty.”
The code words were all there, particularly “comprehensive immigration reform.”

The political dividing line is “pathway to citizenship.” If that’s in either a DACA bill or ultimate comprehensive reform, it’s amnesty. And it’s what the old Gang of 8 members still want.

Trump said he’ll “take the heat.”

The “worst” view is that the Amnesty Train is rolling down the tracks, and to use a metaphor from the campaign, Trump will shoot his core campaign promise on immigration in the middle of 5th Avenue, figuring his base will stick with him anyway.

Report: DACA Amnesty ‘Would Increase’ Number of Anchor Babies on Welfare
As Breitbart News previously reported, there are an estimated 4.5 million United States-born children who were given birthright citizenship despite at least one of their parents being an illegal alien. These children are commonly known as “anchor babies,” as they are able to eventually bring their foreign relatives to the U.S. legally through the process known as “chain migration.”
This estimate does not include anchor babies over the age of 18 or those who are living abroad with their deported parents.
A CBO report, estimating the impact of giving amnesty to the nearly 800,000 to 3.5 million illegal aliens who are enrolled or eligible for the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, finds that such a plan would end up increasing the number of anchor babies who participate in federal benefit programs every year:

After DACA Comments, Tucker Asks Trump: ‘What Was The Point Of Running For President?’

The Daily Caller co-founder said, “Congress is full of people from both parties who believe that the point of our immigration policy is to provide cheap labor to their donors and to atone for America’s imaginary sins against the world. They couldn’t care less about immigration’s effect on you or your family–these are the same people the president now says he trusts to write the immigration bill, the one he will sign no matter what it says. So what was the point of running for president?”
Carlson continued, “The Democrats’ goal is to import more Democratic voters, and by any means necessary. Once they retake the Congress and the presidency, and if Trump betrays his base on immigration–that’ll definitely happen–it is over. Say goodbye to borders, they are done.

‘In Command’: Trump Shocks Media With Access To Immigration Meeting With Democrats
Laying out conditions that many Democrats view as nonstarters, Mr. Trump said the legislation must fortify the nation’s borders; end “chain migration,” a term used by immigration critics to refer to immigrants’ ability to bring members of their extended family to the United States after gaining their own legal status; and cancel the diversity visa lottery program.
Even CNN praised the extended pool spray, with Dana Bash saying that this meeting probably wouldn’t have gone any different if the cameras weren’t there, citing two Republicans at the meeting who told her they had no idea the cameras would stick around that long. She added that this is what people who voted for Trump hoped his presidency would look like, The Donald “in command.”

Rep. Dave Brat on DACA: I Don’t Think Dems Want to Shut Down the Gov’t ‘In Exchange for Giving Illegals Citizenship’
Brat explained, “It comes down to leverage. Hopefully, our side says, ‘Look we won the House, the Senate, and the White House, based on not doing a DACA deal.’ It’s not in the Republican platform. What’s in the platform is balancing the budget, building a strong defense, having strong borders, having legal hiring through E-Verify, controlling chain migration, so that way immigration policy favors American workers. Most of it is common sense, but the special interests get in the way.

The Creeps in Hillary Clinton’s Corner
Grant Stinchfield tells Hillary Clinton What Happened: “Hillary, you’ve spent your entire career surrounded by creeps. Never once did you tell them to get away from you. But here’s the real reason why you wanted to tell President Trump to ‘back up.’ It’s because you hate the people he speaks for—the miners you wanted to put out of business, the gun owners, the church goers, the union families, the factory workers, the people you called deplorables…For three decades, you used creeps to prop you up all in a condescending effort to look down on all of us. Now you’re nothing but a two-time loser who can’t stop whining, and my prediction is your book will be a flop because America already knows exactly what happened.”

The party’s over: Republicans and Democrats are both finished
We all know just how loudly and angrily the left has been reacting to President Trump in general. But in case there’s any doubt about how the partisan right is responding to the Trump team’s moves lately, there shouldn’t be. They’re infuriated. But there’s also seems to be an understanding that there’s little they can do about it.
Somewhere, George Washington’s ghost must be smiling wide with those wooden teeth of his. It was Washington who warned against the formation of political parties and urged the nation to choose leaders for reasons that transcended partisan politics.

Hillary Clinton: Time to abolish the Electoral College
POINT ONE: IF NOT FOR THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE, NEW YORK AND CALIFORNIA WOULD CHOOSE OUR LEADERS PERENNIALLY
POINT TWO: YOU WON THE POPULAR VOTE BY 3 MILLION ALL RIGHT… WITH 5 MILLION ILLEGAL VOTES
Clinton won the 2016 popular vote by nearly 3 million votes, a fact she routinely brings up in her new memoir. But Trump won the Electoral College, a body of 538 members who select the president based on the popular vote in each state, meaning the person who gets the most votes nationally doesn’t necessarily win the election.

“Well, they don’t have to buy my book, and they can turn off the radio when they hear me talking. I’m not going anywhere,” Clinton said. “I have the experience, I have the insight, I have the scars that I think give me not only the right, but the responsibility to speak out.

Trump Sets The Record Straight: “If We Don’t Have The Wall, We’re Doing Nothing”
The Trump administration may very well demand border wall funding be included in a deal with DACA, as TGP reported last night, Speaker Ryan believes support for it is slim to none.

9 Lies About DACA Trump Is Buying Into

Via Twitter, Trump praised the almost 800,000 illegal alien recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, saying they are “good, educated and accomplished young people,” but failing to mention some of the key points on the issue that he often brought to light during the 2016 presidential election.
Now, Trump seems to be buying into a handful of untruths about DACA, amnesty for illegal aliens and his working-class, middle-class voter base.

April Ryan Loses It Over Don Lemon Admitting Hillary Made Mistakes Costing Her the Election
On Wednesday’s CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon took the extraordinary step of conceding that Hillary Clinton made mistakes during the election that she won’t acknowledge, but it didn’t sit well with CNN political analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan as she vehemently defended Clinton.

Politics Makes Strange Bedfellows

Donald Trump is a hard man to get a feeling for. A successful businessman who got into politics and went through the primaries like a cyclone in a wheat field. Stunning the world, he defeated someone who had been all but preordained as the next president and turned Capitol Hill on its ear. He has been universally opposed by the establishment of both parties. In spite of the media’s best efforts to destroy the only man with the nerve to stand up to them, he still remains popular with those who voted for him.
He ran on repealing Obamacare and building the border wall. His own party betrayed him on health care and it looks like he gave a big FU to his own party and has worked a deal with the Democrats just to get something done. The modern definition of “bipartisanship” is, was, and always will be the republicans abandoning everything they believe in and give the liberals everything they want. There are conflicting reports about a deal he struck with the left and it is unclear exactly what his motives are.

Pelosi And Schumer: Trump Agreed To ‘Enshrine DACA Protections Into Law’ Without Wall

“We had a very productive meeting at the White House with the President. The discussion focused on DACA. We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders disputed the Democratic leaders’ claims saying Trump did not agree to excluding the wall from any DACA fix.

Report: Trump Caves on DACA, Wants ‘Quick’ Amnesty for 800K Illegal Aliens

In a meeting with establishment politicians from the Problem Solvers Caucus and the Blue Dog Coalition, President Trump signaled a full-fledged cave on the issue of giving amnesty to nearly 800,000 illegal aliens currently protected by an Obama-created executive immigration program.
I would reserve thought on this as this is Democratic statement and nothing is written out. And there was no prior indication that the wall would ever be a part of this deal. Paul Ryan said there would be funding for the wall apart from this. So we’ll have to see how it all shakes out formally.

Outrageous Selling-Out of the Base: Immigration Patriots Blast Trump Staffer Marc Short for Trading DACA Amnesty for Tax Cuts
As Breitbart News reported, Trump’s congressional relations aide Marc Short told reporters that he is not asking Democrats to exchange amnesty for the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens covered by the Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for the legal immigration-cutting RAISE Act, E-Verify, or even border wall funding.
Instead, Short – who previously worked in the Republican establishment and headed an organization bankrolled by the pro-mass immigration billionaire Koch brothers – tied the massive amnesty deal to tax cuts

Report: Dem pollsters worried that attacks on Trump not sticking
Many of the ideas party leaders have latched onto in an attempt to appeal to their lost voters — free college tuition, raising the minimum wage to $15, even Medicare for all — test poorly among voters outside the base. The people in these polls and focus groups tend to see those proposals as empty promises, at best.
Victor Davis Hansen has a great post at National Review, Two Resistances. The basic thesis is that the Media-Dem-NeverTrump Resistance gets all the attention, but the real resistance is an uprising against elites, so much so that Trump is an acceptable antidote

Tough Love: Democratic Operatives Tear Apart the Party’s Current Strategy for 2018
The president’s response to the Charlottesville violence, the rolling back of the Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals, Russian collusion hysteria, the slow pace of enacting his agenda—all of these things have Democrats grinning, expect that they shouldn’t. The party’s own operatives and data crunchers have run through the numbers based on focus groups, and Democrats are still heading for the electoral ditch.
In all, while Trump’s approval ratings might be in the low 40s by the time the 2018 midterms hit, it’s appallingly naïve for the Left to think a blue wave is coming based on that factor alone.

NARAL quotes the pope? BWAHAHA!

2017_09 11 NARAL tweet

The pope ALSO says abortion is murder. Ahem.

I don’t know if Pope Francis actually said that rescinding DACA was not pro-life. But even if he did, it has no bearing whatsoever on the FACTS that:

(a) Obama overstepped his authority in ordering it in the first place, and
(b) Trump was on solid constitutional grounds in rescinding it and telling Congress to pass it properly if they care so much.

Nobody ever said the pontiff from Argentina knew diddly squat about our form of government.
