“We continue to witness historic obstruction by the minority party when it comes to funding the federal government and confirming the president’s nominees,” the letter said.
“President Trump said he would never sign another massive omnibus bill again,” Perdue told Breitbart News. “Congress only has 66 days to get next year’s funding bill to President Trump’s desk.”

Probably won’t get back here today. After breakfast with my uncles, DW wants to go looking for a different car. We still have a balance on her current vehicle. The salesman tries to con you into thinking the dealership will pay off the old unit, when they just roll it into the new loan. I love my wife dearly and indulge her whenever possible. But money’s money. I pay the bills, so if I don’t get what I want some salesman is going to end up thinking: ‘Man, what a jerk.’
Diamond and Silk went to the hill yesterday to testify about being screwed by Facebook. A couple race-baiting black congresscritters (are there any other kind) tried to bully them into saying Trump paid them, they badmouthed the Kenyan and made a lot of money. Only Democrats are supposed to do that. Not by working, mind you, but by confiscating it from those that earned it.

Diamond and Silk SHUT DOWN Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee at Facebook Censorship Hearing
Sheila Jackson Lee first asked Ms. Hardaway if she was ever paid by the Trump campaign.
Lynnette Hardaway (Diamond): No. We have never been paid by the Trump campaign.
Sheila Jackson Lee: 5$? 100$?
Lynnette Hardaway (Diamond): We have NEVER been paid by the Trump campaign… We have NEVER been paid. We have NEVER been paid…. Hold on a minute, Ms. Jackson. Don’t try to mince my words!

Bernie Sanders: ‘Trump Agenda Is Dead’ if Democrats Win Majority in 2018
The former 2016 presidential candidate said progressive candidates on the left are more electable than conservative Democrats, adding that Americans are catching on to ideas such as universal health care.
Sanders told the Times he plans to endorse candidates in the 2018 races, but he has not endorsed a candidate in the New York governor’s race.
Mylan Executives Donate Big Money to Manchin
Company gave over $50K to senator in first quarter of 2018 while it was planning West Virginia layoffs
Executives at Mylan N.V., the pharmaceutical company that drew controversy for increasing the price of EpiPen devices nearly 400 percent, donated heavily to Democratic senator Joe Manchin’s reelection campaign as the company planned to lay off more than 400 workers in his home state of West Virginia.
Mylan—whose CEO, Heather Bresch, is Manchin’s daughter—announced Friday that it will lay off 15 percent of the workforce at its manufacturing plant in Morgantown, W.Va. The plant, one of about 50 that Mylan has around the world, employs upwards of 3,000 West Virginians and is one of the state’s largest employers.
Comey memos show Valerie Jarrett’s CNN daughter a useful tool for Democrats
SOUNDS LIKE NBC HIRING CHEESY CLINTON FOR $600k AND SHE DID ALMOST NO WORK
CNN hired Valerie Jarrett’s daughter, Laura Jarrett, as the Justice Department’s correspondent, despite having zero background in journalism. She just waltzed in and got an on-screen, big-dollar job at CNN, same as you or I could do, right? She’s still there, by the way.
And by another coincidence, the DoJ of Jarrett’s beat oversees the star of this drama, the FBI.
Starbucks’ ‘unconscious bias training’ isn’t enough, protesters say
YOU CANNOT SATISFY THESE SLUGS
More than 100 fraternity members and supporters attended the “Rally Against Racial Injustice” on Sunday afternoon, held near the downtown Philadelphia Starbucks where Nelson and his friend, Donte Robinson, were arrested on April 12 after the store’s manager asked them to leave because they hadn’t purchased anything.
Starbucks apologized to the men in a statement last week, saying it was learning more about what it “did wrong” and was willing to take the necessary steps “to fix it,” according to a statement.
Mukasey: Obama Wanted Clinton Cleared to Avoid Being Linked to Her Misconduct
“President Obama was sending messages and receiving messages on Hillary Clinton’s private email server,” Mukasey said. “Jim Comey knew that, and when President Obama went on television and said, ‘There’s no issue here, she didn’t really intend to cause harm,’ what he was really saying in essence is, ‘You’d better let her off, because if you wind up accusing her, you wind up accusing me.
Stephanopoulos: ‘Not Always Fair’ to Report ‘Wrongdoing’ of Candidates, It ‘Equalizes’
The actual problem with the media was that Clinton was their candidate and they would do everything to protect her. There really wasn’t the equalization that Stephanopoulos was whining about. Despite victories, CNN was badgering Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on when he was going to drop out of the Democratic. And on NBC, Clinton fangirl Andrea Mitchell was suggesting that an AP report detailing special favors for Clinton Foundation donors was just an annoying “headache.”
7th Circuit Sides with Sanctuary Cities, Keeps Federal Money Flowing Nationwide
LEFTIST JUDGES ARE VITAL TO FORCING THE ‘PROGRESSIVE’ AGENDA ON THE PUBLIC.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, based in Chicago, affirmed a U.S. district court’s imposition of a nationwide injunction preventing Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his Department of Justice from withholding “Bryne Grants” for state and local law enforcement in jurisdictions that adopt so-called “sanctuary” policies.
All three judges on the panel agreed with the district court that Chicago has a reasonable likelihood of prevailing on their argument that withholding funds violate constitutionally mandated separation of powers between Congress and the executive and impermissibly infringes on Chicago’s sovereignty under federalism. All three are Republican appointees.
Democrats are getting desperate as Mueller stalls
In a move that reeks of desperation, the DNC filed a civil suit Friday against President Trump’s campaign, Russia and WikiLeaks, alleging a vast (right-wing!) conspiracy to tip the election to Trump.
The suit’s flamboyant charges made headlines, but that only served to obscure the real meaning. Namely, that top Dems are giving up their fantasies that special counsel Robert Mueller will deliver them from political purgatory by getting the goods on Trump.
Joy Reid Guest: Hannity Viewers Lack “Intellectual Curiosity,” Could Drive Country to War
The liberal elite’s contempt for conservatives was on vivid display on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show this morning. In a long segment attacking Sean Hannity, guest Tiffany Cross said:
“[Hannity] has a hotline to the White House. He also has a hotline to three million viewers every night . . . This is a scary thing because the people who watch him do not have the intellectual curiosity to get information other places, other than this echo chamber that is Fox News. So this group of people may be the people that drive us into a war.”
Kanye West’s Tweets Admiring Black Conservative Candace Owens Sparks Angry Backlash
BLIND HATRED IS THE ONLY ACCEPTABLE RESPONSE TO RATIONAL THOUGHT
Kanye West sparked an angry backlash by tweeting his admiration for a black far-right media personality and the way she ‘thinks’ on Saturday.
The rapper endorsed YouTube personality Candace Owen, a woman who is known for her controversial views on racism.
‘I love the way Candace Owens thinks,’ he said on Saturday morning.
He would follow up with ‘only free thinkers’ a few moments after the first tweet.
The original tweet quickly gained traction as over 32,000 people liked the post and another 10,200 retweeted it.
Democrats try to win back labor in order to win back the House
RUN AS A CONSERVATIVE, GOVERN AS A LIBERAL…THEY’VE BEEN DOING IT FOR DECADES
When Democrat Conor Lamb stood in a sea of United Mine Workers of America here in early March, it was clear that Democrats had found a way to bring the blue-collar worker back into their camp.
The union voters I talked to said they didn’t feel that Democrats in Washington had their back; that they were too progressive, too strident, and way out of touch with their lives and needs.
The Dire Consequence of the Republicans Losing CongressOur booming economy, reversals of Obama’s destructive executive orders, and Trump restoring power to We the People confirm that Trump is well on his way to making America great again. If the Democrats win back the House and Senate, all Trump’s progress for us will stop.
After impeaching Trump, Democrats will revert back to their America in which achievers are demonized and punished. Remarkably, Democrats (leftists) view our country as the greatest source of evil on the planet. Consequently, Democrats will continue their mission to make America last.
White House on Pompeo Vote: Democrats Must Decide If They ‘Love This Country More Than They Hate This President’
THE FACT IS THEY DO NOT LOVE THIS COUNTRY AS MUCH AS THEY WANT TO GET RICH FROM IT
Clyburn: If Democrats Don’t Win House in 2018, Leadership Should All Be Replaced
THE YOUNG SOCIALISTS WANT THEIR CUT OF THE PROFITS FROM THE OLD GUYS
“If we’re still in the minority, all of us have got to go,” he told Politico after the annual fish fry he holds in Columbia, South Carolina on Friday.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) has faced some calls from within her caucus to step aside but has said such a move would thrust House Democrats into chaos.
With a younger class of Democrats clamoring to break into leadership, Clyburn, 77, appeared at the fish fry alongside Rep. Tim Ryan, the Ohio Democrat who challenged Pelosi unsuccessfully for her leadership position in 2016.
Just sitting here browsing various sources of information and suddenly I’m up to my ankles in links. Maybe I should call this a high colonic for my queue. Make of it what you will.
California School District Says Parents Can’t Pull Kids Out Of New LGBT Sex Ed Class
IN CALIFORNIA THE STATE HAS TAKEN COMPLETE CONTROL OF ALL CHILDREN TO INDOCTRINATE THEM IN LIBERALISM.
California passed a law called the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015 to promote “healthy attitudes” about “gender [and] sexual orientation.” The law is meant to teach students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods” and allow for “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.”
However, the Orange County Board of Education has decided that parents don’t have a right to exclude their kids from the class, LifeSite News reports. A memo from the Orange County Department of Education general counsel Ronald Wenkart on March 29 stated that the opt-out provision “does not apply to instruction, materials, or programming that discusses gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, discrimination, harassment, bullying, intimidation, relationships, or family and does not discuss human reproductive organs.”
Police chief dealt tough lesson after he apologizes to hip-hop crowd for ‘200 years’ of police abuse
With the City of Baltimore setting a new record in 2017 for killings per capita, where 86 percent of the victims and 85 percent of the suspects had prior criminal records, what do you suppose the police commissioner busies himself with?
Baltimore Police Commissioner Darryl De Sousa, accompanied by Mayor Catherine Pugh, took to the stage Wednesday night at a hip-hop concert to apologize for “200 years” of bad police behavior.
“I want to take the time to apologize for what policing did and I promise you we’re going to make a change in the future,” he added.
And while there were a few cheers, not all concertgoers approved, as De Sousa was jeered, booed and flipped off, as seen in a video posted on Instagram.
IT IS A FOOL’S ERRAND TO GROVEL IN FRONT OF SAVAGES WHO LACK REASON OR EMOTIONAL CONTROL.
Diamond and Silk to Testify Before House Judiciary Committee over Facebook Censorship
THAT SHOULD BE INTERESTING
The duo, whose real names are Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, will attend a panel alongside Corynne McSherry of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and CEO of the News Media Alliance David Chavern to “examine social media filtering and policing practices.”
Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), a leading voice on social media censorship who grilled Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on the issue last week, will also testify before the committee. Rep. Blackburn recently received President Trump’s endorsement in her bid to become Senator from Tennessee.
Representatives from companies such as Facebook, Google, and Twitter were also invited, although it is unclear whether they will attend.
Sessions told White House that Rosenstein’s firing could prompt his departure, too
DON’T LET THE DOOR HIT YOU ON THE WAY OUT, BUDDY
Last summer, when it appeared Trump was going to fire Sessions or pressure him to resign, Republican lawmakers and conservative advocacy groups rallied to Sessions’s side and warned the president not to move against him.
Trump had told senior officials last week that he was considering firing Rosenstein, who was confirmed by the Senate with overwhelming bipartisan support last year. Since then, alumni of the Justice Department have rallied to Rosenstein’s defense.
GOP faces rural rebellion over Trump trade agenda
President Donald Trump’s trade policies are confounding Republicans as rural voters — his strongest supporters — stand to get the short end of the stick just months away from the midterms.
THIS IS FROM THAT SNIVELING LITTLE RAT BASTARD, JONATHAN ALLEN
Now Steffen, who didn’t vote for Trump, is a vocal supporter of Jane Raybould, the Democrat running an improbable campaign against first-term Sen. Deb Fischer, R-Neb. — and says he’s talked to a lot of fellow farmers and Republicans who have “buyer’s remorse” about Trump and Fischer.
While it would take a political tsunami for Fischer to lose — Trump won the state by 25 percentage points — the president’s trade agenda has boxed in congressional Republicans as they fight to hold their majorities in the House and Senate, potentially affecting competitive races in more than a dozen states.
They’re reluctant to distance themselves from a president who is following through on campaign-trail trade promises, whose support they need to drive Republican turnout and who vows his strategy will yield better deals for the country in the long run.
NYT Reporter: I Cried Writing About How Donald Trump Totally Destroyed Clinton
I’m sure you all enjoyed the endless clips over at Clinton campaign headquarters in New York City on election night 2016. The scores of crying Democrats stunned, shocked, and totally devastated that Lady Macbeth would never become president—ever. Yet, members of the news media also exhibited those feelings of despair. Cortney wrote about The New York Times’ Amy Chozick, whose new book about the 2016 election suggests that Hillary Clinton was fully aware that people thought she sucked. Chozick wrote that Clinton told a pollster, “Oh, what’s the point? They’re never going to like me,” speaking about her image, along with not being happy at all about a potential presidential bid launched by then-Vice President Joe Biden. If Clinton was referring to the GOP voters, specifically those in the white working class, she should have tried to do something on this front.
Democrats Lawsuit Alleges Conspiracy Between Trump’s Campaign, Russia, Wikileaks to Disrupt 2016 Election
DEMOCRATS’ COMPLAINT ALLEGES THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN COLLUDED WITH THE RUSSKIES TO HACK INTO DNC SERVERS.
TROUBLE IS, THE COURT WOULD ALLOW THE TRUMP PEOPLE TO EXAMINE THE DEMOCRAT SERVERS, WHICH CONTAIN A LOT OF STUFF THEY DON’T WANT MADE PUBLIC.
The DNC wants “millions of dollars in compensation to offset damage it claims the party suffered from the hacks.” Wikileaks published tons of emails from the DNC in the summer of 2016 right before the convention. The documents showed collusion WITHIN THE DEMOCRAT PARTY to prop up failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
Democrats insist that Russia does not have the sovereign immunity many countries have “because the hack constituted a trespass on the party’s private property. The lawsuit alleges that “Russia engaged in a ‘brazen attack on U.S. soil.”
CNN Chief Political Analyst Mocks DNC Lawsuit “100% Stunt…Honestly, It’s Just A Way To Raise Money
Dem Congresswoman Calls DNC Lawsuit ‘Ill-Conceived’
Trump TORCHES Wasserman Schultz and ‘Pakistani Mystery Man’ in Response to DNC Lawsuit ‘We Will Counter For DNC Server and Clinton Emails’
Trump tweeted: Just heard the Campaign was sued by the Obstructionist Democrats. This can be good news in that we will now counter for the DNC Server that they refused to give to the FBI, the Debbie Wasserman Schultz Servers and Documents held by the Pakistani mystery man and Clinton Emails.
Illinois Senate considering bill to give kids access to medical pot at schools
SEE? ILLINOIS DEMOCRATS KNOW HOW TO DO SOMETHING BESIDES IMPOSE OBSCENE TAX AND FEE INCREASES ON THE CITIZEN VICTIMS TO FEED THEIR CROOKED MACHINE.
The bill was brought to the floor after the family of 11-year-old Ashley Surin filed a federal lawsuit against the state and Schaumburg School District 54 for failing to include public schools among the places people can possess medical cannabis. Surin has been prescribed medical cannabis to treat seizures related to a leukemia diagnosis.
After four years of trying out traditional medications, Surin’s doctors prescribed medical cannabis. She wears a patch on her foot, which contains small amounts of THC. She also sometimes puts oil drops containing THC on her tongue or wrists to regulate her seizures.
A judge ultimately ruled in favor of the family later that month, allowing Surin to bring her medication to school.
Laura Ingraham Removes Guest After He Mocks Her For Losing Advertisers
LIKE MOST DEMOCRATS, MORONES IS A CLASSLESS PIG
“Enrique, I just want to tell you, God bless you, I really, I wish the best for you. But you have been so incredibly rude and nasty since almost the first second of this appearance,” Ingraham said.
“So to say ‘who is he?’ I’m sure he doesn’t know who you are,” Ingraham continued. “So who cares? If the conversation — which is why we actually invited you on the show, to have a conversation — about a topic that’s really important—”
“Where’s your sponsors?” Morones interjected. “David Hogg got rid of half of them. High school kids shut you down.”
ACTUALLY, HER VIEWERSHIP IS UP 20%… BUT WHAT DOES THAT MATTER TO A LIBERAL?
Pelosi claims Democrats are not divided on whether to impeach Trump
NO, THEY’RE NOT. THEY ALL WANT TO CASH IN ON THE TRUMP HATE
Green-haired turtle that breathes through its genitals added to endangered list
With its punky green mohican, the striking Mary river turtle joins a new ZSL list of the world’s most vulnerable reptiles.
It sports a green mohican, fleshy finger-like growths under its chin and can breathe through its genitals.
The Mary river turtle is one of the most striking creatures on the planet, and it is also one of the most endangered.
The 40cm long turtle, which is only found on the Mary river in Queensland, features in a new list of the most vulnerable reptile species compiled by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL).
Despite the turtle’s punk appearance – derived from vertical strands of algae that also grow on its body – its docile nature made it historically popular as a pet.
Late posting today. DW’s check came, had overdue bills to pay, had to get snow tires taken off and highway tires put back on. One was bad and the other one is wearing, so I had to buy another tire. Now I have to have my mechanic check for front end issues. Hopefully just an alignment, but I doubt it. Nothing ever comes easy for me. Then had to get groceries. Money sure don’t last long.
April Ryan Asks Sarah Sanders If Trump Has ‘Thought About Stepping Down’
“With all of this turmoil, particularly last week, has the president at any time thought about stepping down before or now?” Ryan asked, as the press asked repeatedly about President Trump’s anger at the FBI raiding his personal attorney Michael Cohen’s office.
“No, and I think that’s an absolutely ridiculous question,” Sanders replied, calling on another reporter.
Ryan shouted over Sanders that “it’s not a ridiculous question,” before Sanders was able to move on.
She was on all the morning talk shows today and they treated her like royalty.
Fired up donors help Democrats hit early fundraising records
Anti-Trump donors are opening their checkbooks wide this year, helping Democratic candidates set early fundraising records as they hope to send a message in November’s elections.
Democrats running in Senate races across the country have been eager to share their latest fundraising totals with the political universe as they seek to generate a sense of momentum ahead of the midterm elections.
“I think the most important thing that these numbers say is that the Democratic base is very fired up,” said Jennifer Duffy, of the Cook Political Report, a non-partisan campaign tracker.
Paul Ryan won’t seek re-election
I CAN PROMISE YOU THIS SEAT WILL FLIP DEMOCRAT. HE ONLY HELD OFFICE BECAUSE EVERYBODY IN JANESVILLE KNOWS HIM.
House Speaker Paul Ryan is not seeking re-election and will retire from Congress after this year, the Wisconsin Republican announced Wednesday.
“You realize something when you take this job,” Ryan told reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday morning. “It’s a big job with a lot riding on you … but you also know this is not a job that does not last forever. … You realize you hold the office for just a small part of our history. So you better make the most of it.”
Retirement Avalanche Continues: Another House Republican Announces He’s Finished
IT SEEMS LIKE THE REPUBLICANS WANT THE DEMOCRATS TO GET THE MAJORITY. SOME OF THOSE LEFT WILL GO ALONG WITH IMPEACHING THE PRESIDENT… OVER NOTHING.
Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, told his staff this morning he is retiring.
“Eight years takes its time on you. … There’s got to be an exit strategy at some point,” Ross said in an interview, noting he planned on serving 10 years, or five terms.
He dismissed the suggestion that his retirement had anything to do with a possible Democratic wave, though the open seat will now become a target, while setting off a scramble among Republican hopefuls.
NYT Hot Take: If It’s A Witch Hunt, Why Does Trump Care About Attorney-Client Privilege?
Push to Politicize Impeachment May Backfire for Democrats in Midterms
THIS WILL ONLY HAPPEN IF REPUBLICAN VOTERS REALIZE WHAT WE’RE UP AGAINST. DEMOCRATS WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO DESTROY THE PRESIDENT.
The push by a number of prominent Democrats to completely politicize the impeachment process could backfire for them in the midterms, David Axelrod, the political adviser who helped elect Barack Obama to the Presidency in 2008, said on Sunday.
Far left billionaire Tom Steyer, who has dedicated $30 million to electing a Democratic majority in the House of Representatives for the express purpose of impeaching President Trump, thinks virtually any action taken by the President is an impeachable offense.
Surprise! Maxine Waters Says FBI Raid On Trump’s Lawyer Will Lead To His Impeachment
If it were not for the political power she wields and the money she rakes in, her family would probably have her institutionalized. It seems like she’s suffering from a bad case of dementia.
Nancy Pelosi slams Trump for ‘wasting resources on pointlessly sending troops’ to border
THE ONLY TIME THEY GRIPE ABOUT COST IS WHEN SOMEBODY ELSE IS SPENDING IT
The California Democrat wrote: “@realDonaldTrump is using every cynical political trick in the book to ignite anti-immigrant fervor. Needlessly militarizing our southern border won’t make Americans more safe – it’s just another political calculation.
“Instead of wasting resources on pointlessly sending troops to our border, @realDonaldTrump should work with Democrats to pass the DREAM Act & #ProtectDREAMers,” she added.
Pelosi: If We Win, We’re Going to Turn Back the Clock By Repealing the New Law and Massively Increasing Taxes
THEY WOULD HAVE TO HAVE ENOUGH VOTES TO OVERRIDE A PRESIDENTIAL VETO.
Uprooting the entire tax law would inflict massive tax increases on nearly every American family. Approximately nine-in-ten taxpayers are experiencing a reduction in their tax burden thanks to the new policy, on which every last Democrat in Congress voted ‘no.’ Republicans’ parallel programs of de-regulation and tax relief have helped fuel and sustain a sizzling US economy, the positive effects of which are simply undeniable.
A huge champion of the poor, Nancy Pelosi’s $22 million Napa home boasts tennis courts and a Bocci ball court. She is lucky enough to also have a helicopter landing pad.
Being poor is GREAT! Just not for Nancy
A political creation of unions, she employs ZERO union people at her vineyard and at her luxurious bed & breakfast, Auberge de Soleil, where a burger and fries will set you back $22 before tax and tip.
The same is true of the 16-branch, upscale restaurant chain Pelosi partners in, Piatti, located in 5 states in the USA, shown below. Of the nearly 1,000 employees working there, ZERO are members of a union.
Employing union people is FANTASTIC!!! Just not for Nancy
Pelosi also played a critical role in exempting American Samoa, where 80% of the island works for Starkist Tuna, from a mandatory minimum wage hike, from $5.35 per hour. Advocate For The Poor Pelosi is a major Starkist shareholder, you see.
Bad working conditions, and $5.35 each hour. Sorry Charlie..!
In a single year the bar tab for Pelosi’s huge government plane exceeded $100,000 — one time she diverted it over 1,000 miles in order to pick up a single order of chocolate-dipped strawberries.
In Feb 2018 Chris Matthews claimed the GOP’s strategy to maintain its congressional majority was to relentlessly attack Nancy “because she is an ethnic sort of person”.
Behold the highly ethnic, hardscrabble Pelosi clan below, decked out in gangsta finery in South Central Napa Valley:
SOMETHING ELSE TO HATE ABOUT THE BUDGET: The new Congressional budget ALSO does not include the Conscience Protection Act that would have protected health care professionals from being forced to participate in abortions or other objectionable health procedures.
SOMETHING ELSE TO HATE ABOUT THE BUDGET, PART TWO: Multiple Department of Veterans Affairs reforms were removed from the sh***y spending bill Congress just dumped on us.
ANOTHER REASON TO NOT SIT AT HOME AND LET DEMOCRATS OWN CONGRESS: “If you value religious education or life’s sanctity, you’re not welcome in the party,” writes Cardinal Timothy Dolan, in “The Democrats Abandon Catholics” in today’s Wall Street Journal.
Foul-mouthed activist, David Hogg, who HATES the NRA and wants to disarm America, is MUY PISSED about Broward County’s plan to require clear backpacks. Cuz, you know, the CONSTITUTION and PRIVACY. Or something.
SCHOOL SHOOTINGS: Meanwhile, Henderson County, North Carolina, is taking another tack. They are going to hire armed security guards for every public school.
GOOD NEWS from FORTY DAYS FOR LIFE: Yesterday, after talking with a pro-life counselor and doing some research on the internet, a pregnant mom canceled her abortion appointment and demanded her deposit back! Thank you, God!!
NEW NSA ADVISER: President Trump announced that John Bolton will replace H.R. McMaster as national security adviser. Unsurprisingly, the Left immediately began shrieking NAZI! RACIST!! RUSSIA LOVER!!!
YOU GO, GIRL! Christina Hagan is the youngest female Republican to ever serve in the Ohio Legislature, and now she’s running for Congress. She also just found out that she’s pregnant with twins. The due date? November 6, which is Election Day. “When I was in the state legislature I was actually debating pro-life issues and I could feel my first child hiccuping in-utero,” Hagan remembers. “You know that child is separate, unique, and distinct from you because you can’t hiccup for the baby.”
STILTON: After hearing that “60 Minutes” plans to run an interview with alleged Trump mattress Stormy Daniels, we tried to make up a joke about “what’s the difference between a journalist and a porn star?” Unfortunately, we had to drop it when we realized there is no difference anymore.
Still, we’re covering Ms. Daniels (which is more than she does most of the time), plus taking an in depth look at Joe Biden’s latest threat to beat the hell out of the President of the United States in a bare-knuckle brawl.
So why are you still reading this instead of hurrying straight to Stilton’s Place?
If the Republican party had a death wish, they accomplished it yesterday. They passed a horrific omnibus spending bill much to the delight of the Democrats. The bill was over 2300 pages and they were given less than a day to read it. Most of them leave the reading of legislation to their staff, as they can’t be bothered with such triflings. 90 Republicans voted against the bill, along with 77 Democrats. Did you get that? More Republicans opposed this spending orgy than the Dems did. As in Jonestown, most drank the Kool-aid willingly, while some had to be forced. The Democrats only need to pick up 23 seats in November to take back the majority. According to Rasmussen, there are at least that many Republican seats in serious peril, plus more than 20 that are leaning Republican or tossups. The Republicans got some additional military spending, to try to counter the slashing Obama did during his reign of terror.
RYAN-PELOSI UNIPARTY Easily Passes Record $1.3 Trillion Omnibus That Spits in Face of GOP Voters
Meadows pointed out the giant flaws of the plan:
– Record spending levels
– No wall/border security
– Obamacare intact
– Funds Planned Parenthood
– Sanctuary Cities funded
– Barely 24 hours to read a 2,300 page bill
Michael Mukasey told the press yesterday that Trump will sign the spending bill. He has to. If the government were to shut down he would be eviscerated by the left. Bill Clinton got away with shutting down the government by blaming Newt Gingrich. Obama got away with it because he was never blamed for anything. The time for him to act would have been long before now. Now it’s too late.
10 ways the GOP sold you out in the omnibus spending bill
How ironic that Republicans will pass what is likely to be their last major bill before losing Congress by violating their pledge to America in 2010, when they captured Congress, promising to post all legislation for 72 hours before a vote.
Taken in totality, this bill validates, legitimizes, and codifies the world view of the Democrats, only with slightly less enthusiasm. Which is why the Democrats are crushing Republicans in turnout so far this election season. This bill will essentially end Republican control of Congress.
[CtH: My fellow Republicans: LETTING DEMOCRATS TAKE OVER IS TOTALLY THE WRONG WAY TO FIX CONGRESS! Everybody is saying how the Democrats are cheering this budget. So duhhhhhhhh … how the heck would giving them majority control help?! We need to chuck out the ELITIST REPUBLICANS who LIE to our faces every campaign season (remember John McCain on Obamacare?!) and replace them with POPULIST REPUBLICANS who actually believe in the small government principles the GOP keeps telling us about every campaign season.]
Exclusive–Rep. Paul Gosar: Omnibus Is Christmas in the Spring for Liberals and Special Interests
Sadly, the bill contains many more provisions that run counter to the conservative principles that we as Republicans were elected to implement. For example, the Omnibus includes provision inserted by liberal California Senator Dianne Feinstein which blocks a 56 million-ton sand and gravel mine from opening in the Soledad Canyon in California despite two contracts being competitively awarded to a company that has already invested $40 million. This amounts to nothing more than a land grab.
Naturally, the democrats didn’t try to hide their glee.
Pelosi and Schumer Cheer Paul Ryan’s Omnibus: “We Were Able to Accomplish More Than When We Held Majority”
“I think one of the reasons they rushed it through they didn’t want their colleagues to see what was in the bill.” It was a great day for Democrats.
They get to blow more cash on the pet projects and illegal aliens — and Trump does not get his border wall.
You can be sure the Democrat Congress WILL NEVER return the favor when they take over Congress next year.
Schumer: Spending deal brings end to ‘era of austerity’
‘We Democrats are really happy with what we were able to accomplish’
According to Schmuck, America has suffered 10 years of austerity. That’s coming to an end. Democrats are totally convinced that government spending is the key to economic growth.
“We Democrats are really happy with what we were able to accomplish on a number of priorities that Democrats have fought for all along – infrastructure, education, opioid relief, and more,” Mr. Schumer said of the spending bill.
“At the end of the day, as the minority party, we feel good about being able to succeed in so many ways,” he said. “We don’t have the House. We don’t have the Senate. We don’t have the presidency. But we produced a darn good bill for the priorities that we have believed in.”
For the life of me I don’t understand why the Republicans are so generous to the Democrats. Their generosity is never reciprocated. Dems take and take and take and give nothing. It’s what defines them. When they take control in January you can be sure Republicans will be locked out of committees, will not be allowed to offer any legislation, and will have Pelosi’s foot on their necks from day one. Maxine Waters has probably already written a draft of the impeachment articles she will present about 10 minutes after they’re gaveled into session. They never even put up a fight.
Thanks to tax reform, the NFIB Small Business Economic Trends Survey optimism index hit a record high of 107.6 in February.
Yesterday, President Trump inspected eight border wall prototypes. He said he preferred taller walls and walls that allowed Border Patrol agents to see through the barrier.
According to the Center for Immigration Studies, Trump $18 billion “big beautiful wall” will pay for itself by curbing the importation of crime, drugs and illegal immigrants who tend to go on the federal dole.
The 5th Circuit Court has upheld Texas’ Sanctuary Cities Ban, declaring it lawful and constitutional.
President Trump has fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. CIA director Mike Pompeo will take over at State. This is good news for pro-life and pro-family advocates since Pompeo has a lengthy record in support of a right to life and in opposition to the homosexual agenda.
Gina Haspel, who became deputy director of the agency last month, will become the first woman director of the CIA. (Don’t hold your breath waiting on the Feminist Left to applaud.)
