The Shutdown
PJ Media, by Richard Fernandez    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 1/11/2019 8:27:41 AM     Post Reply
As the government shutdown took its toll, Washington DC assumed the unfamiliar aspect of a city going through hard times. “It’s like a ghost city — totally dead. ... When other parts of the country suffered during the Great Recession, the area around the nation’s capital boomed.” But now the shoe is on the other foot. (Snip) The question everybody is asking is: who will blink first? Trump or Congress. It seems apparent that neither can afford to. It has been evident for some time that the Left will settle for nothing else but the president´s

Exasperated Democrats try
to rein in Ocasio-Cortez
Politico, by Rachel Bade and Heather Caygle    Original Article
Posted By: toledo- 1/11/2019 8:19:22 AM     Post Reply
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already making enemies in the House Democratic Caucus — and some of its members are mounting an operation to bring the anti-establishment, democratic socialist with 2.2 million Twitter followers into the fold. The effort, described by nearly 20 lawmakers and aides, is part carrot, part stick: Some lawmakers with ties to Ocasio-Cortez are hoping to coax her into using her star power to unite Democrats and turn her fire on Republicans. Others simultaneously warn Ocasio-Cortez is destined for a lonely, ineffectual career in Congress if she continues to treat her own party as the enemy.

Trump’s New Shutdown World

This weekend the federal shutdown becomes the longest in history—and yet, and yet, the sky has not fallen. Meet the team that has allowed the Trump White House to hold out for so long, and in the process forever altered future shutdown fights. Across the street from the Oval Office, an only somewhat merry band of budget lawyers labor on one priority: making this event as painless as possible. That was the order from President Trump when the government closed, and the Office of Management and Budget was ready. Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney



Yes, There Is A Crisis At The
Border — The Numbers Show It

Illegal Immigration: Democrats and the mainstream press accuse President Donald Trump of manufacturing a crisis at the border. The numbers tell another story. As soon as the words "growing humanitarian and security crisis at our Southern border" left Trump´s lips in his Oval Office address this week, Democrats and media "fact-checkers" were trying to dispel it as a deliberate lie. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Trump "must stop manufacturing a crisis, and must reopen the government."

Candy lessons and the border crisis

According to an article in the New York Post, in his recent government shutdown meeting with congressional leaders, President Trump plied the likes of sourpuss House speaker Nancy Pelosi and pickle-faced Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer with sweets. Vice President Mike Pence commended the president for his sugary savoir-faire when he informed the media that, contrary to Democrat comments stating otherwise, "[t]he president walked into the room and passed out candy." Frankly, Trump shouldn´t have bothered, because no amount of sugar could sweeten up the two corpses who rose from the dead to attend a meeting, partake of the freebies, and

Financial Times’ Agenda Pulls Quotes From
‘Les Moonves’ Interview He Denied Ever Happened

The Financial Times’ corporate news service Agenda has pulled quotes from an interview that it said its reporters had with former CBS CEO Les Moonves — an interview the disgraced mogul vehemently denied he ever had with the outlet. In a lengthy editor’s note added Thursday to an updated version of the Dec. 18 story, Agenda said it stood by its reporters, Stephanie Forshee and Jennifer Williams-Alvarez, but had decided to yank all the quotes from the disputed interview anyway.

Red Lobster Faces Boycott, Mockery

Amid yet another advertiser boycott pushed by left-wing groups against a Fox News host, Tucker Carlson has seen several companies pull their ads from "Tucker Carlson Tonight" after he described the unregulated influx of low-skilled immigrants as making America "poorer and dirtier." Speaking of unregulated immigration of those without a college education into the country, Carlson said, "Nobody even tries to defend it. Instead, our leaders demand that you shut up and accept it. We have a moral obligation to admit the world’s poor, they tell us, even if it makes our own country poor and dirtier and more divided."



NYT Uses Tiny New Mexico Town

Somewhere along the United States´ 2,000-mile border with Mexico is a town unconcerned by what President Donald Trump has called a border "crisis," and the New York Times is on it. "On the Border, Little Enthusiasm for a Wall: ‘We Have Other Problems That Need Fixing,´" the Times reported. The source for this claim is not polling data, but rather interviews primarily with residents of the tiny town of Columbus, N.M.

Dems Introduce Gun-Ban Bill as GOP
Seeks to Expand Gun-Carry Protections
Washington Free Beacon, by Stephen Gutowski    Original Article

Democrats and Republicans introduced dueling gun proposals this week in the Senate with Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) pushing a new gun-ban proposal and Sen. John Cornyn (R., Tex.) attempting to expand gun-carry protections across the country. Feinstein´s bill, the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019, would ban the sale, manufacture, transfer, and importation of certain semiautomatic firearms. The text of the bill has not yet been released, but Feinstein´s office said it would ban any firearm capable of accepting a detachable magazine and either a "pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel or a

It is time to rekindle our political spirits in this new year, and to take stock of the subjects of encouragement. First, the takeover of the House of Representatives by the Democrats was, on balance, not as jarring to the vital organs as was feared. (Snip)A second source of happiness, despite the Democrats’ window-rattling ululations of joy, is that they have no mandate to do anything, and they have taken the bait the president dangled to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Pelosi at the White House three weeks ago.

Joseph Stalin’s firearms registration and confiscation was a tremendous success for the Socialist state. (Photo) Under the Tsar, Russia was one of the most heavily armed societies on earth. That all changed when Stalin and the communists took control. Stalin was able to control, starve, punish and imprison a defenseless people… after he took their guns.

People Will Die is the last-resort of the Democrat Party arguments. CBS reported on June 26, 2017, "Nancy Pelosi warns ´hundreds of thousands of people will die´ if GOP health bill passes. ”The Daily Caller reported on July 10, 2018, "´People Will Die´: Yale Students, Faculty Outraged Brett Kavanaugh Might End Abortion." The Guardian reported on September 19, 2018, "´People will die´: Obama official´s warning as Trump slashes refugee numbers.” (Snip) Here´s what happens if the shutdown drags on. Economists warn that a catastrophe is in the making if the partial government closure continues for weeks or months."

The graveyard ghouls and

Not all ghouls live in the graveyard. Some of them are busy in the capital sunshine, making book on Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s chances of returning to the U.S. Supreme Court and staying there to assist in the rendering of Donald Trump and his administration as dead as one of those graveyard ghouls. Justice Ginsburg missed oral arguments at the court this week for the first time in the 25 years she has been on the court, and that put the politicians, pundits and a considerable portion of the left into a lather of speculation, none of it idle.

Donald Trump Jr. put CNN´s Jim Acosta in his place on Thursday in response to the White House correspondent taking a swipe at him on social media after being roundly mocked over videos he posted on his Twitter account. Acosta visited the border in McAllen, Texas, ahead of President Donald Trump´s visit, and decided to try to prove that the president was wrong about the border. The result was Acosta unintentionally demonstrating that border walls made the area safer. "I found some steel slats down on the border," Acosta tweeted.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked a vote on Democrat spending bills that would reopen parts of the government without a border wall, referring to the legislation as “political stunts.” “The last thing we need to do right now is trade pointless—absolutely pointless—show votes back and forth across the aisle,” McConnell said on the floor Thursday, according to CNN. “The political stunts are not going to get us anywhere.”

Kamala Harris is set to announce her candidacy for president sometime around Martin Luther King Jr. Day. What sort of chief executive would she be? Well, here´s your first clue: On December 5, Harris posed a series of written questions to Brian Buescher, President Trump´s nominee for District Court in Nebraska. The third question reads as follows: Since 1993, you have been a member of the Knights of Columbus, an all-male society comprised primarily of Catholic men. In 2016, Carl Anderson, leader of the Knights of Columbus, described abortion as ‘a legal regime that has resulted in more than 40

Jayme Closs, the 13-year-old Wisconsin girl who had been missing since October, was found Thursday malnourished and dirty after she reportedly fled her captor and flagged down a dog walker in the small forested town of Gordon, Wis. A suspect was arrested just minutes later. But authorities disclosed no further information about the person arrested. There is little known about Closs´ physical condition, but her grandfather told the Star Tribune of Minneapolis that she was being treated at a hospital and was expected to soon be reunited with relatives.

The Senate had good news and bad news for the 800,000 federal employees who won’t get paychecks on Friday because of the partial government shutdown: Yes, they will be paid, but no, not until there’s a deal to restore funding. The mixed news came Thursday afternoon, when senators voted unanimously to authorize the eventual post-shutdown funding of back pay. Once the House passes its own bill, President Trump will sign it, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in calling the measure to a voice vote. “I had an opportunity to talk to President Trump a few moments ago, and wanted


President Trump Will Win the
Border Wall Security Argument

The president will win the political argument over the need for a border wall, and the reasons are simple: (1) most common-sense Americans agree with the need; and (2) democrats, only comfortable within their echo-chamber, always over-play their hand. It really is that simple. There is a genuine crisis at the border; and illegal entry into the United States is a national security issue. Two recent articles today outline the issue: (CNN Reports) […] Mexican authorities found at least 20 bodies, most of them burned, along a dirt road in the northern state of Tamaulipas

The Return of the Lost Generation

You may have heard the term "The Lost Generation," made famous by a group of writers in the early 20th century. Its members were most notably Ernest Hemingway and Gertrude Stein, who, some say, coined the phrase. This generation comprised the young men and woman who had returned from the carnage of World War I and met the new challenge of domestic life in the ´20s and ´30s. This generation was noted for its restlessness, lack of direction, and great confusion. A theme that filled Lost Generation literature of the time was the frivolous wealth of the upper crust. This

Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Really the Democratic Future?

There is little doubt that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, representing parts of Queens and the Bronx, is being treated as a leader of a new Democratic swing to the left. Nor is there much doubt that the media-savvy upset winner in New York’s 14th congressional district combines personal charisma with a knack for policy packaging, as with her “Green New Deal.” But before she’s anointed as representative of a political trend, it’s worth looking closely at how many—or how few—votes she received compared with other members of Congress, including moderate Democrats, and what that says about a little-discussed aspect

Hiding Evidence: The Continuing Cover-Up

More information is supporting the theory that the current big Justice Department "investigations" are actually functioning as big cover-up operations. Robert Mueller´s team is effectively hiding key evidence related to serious crimes committed by government officials. Mueller has nearly complete control over what the public or any investigator can see. He has control over what witnesses can talk about. This means that the Huber and Horowitz investigations exist to make you think something is being investigated when it is not.

Beto O’Rourke — or, as he was born, Robert Francis O’Rourke — tweeted out a video response to President Donald Trump’s border wall speech that in essence said this: There’s nothing to see here, folks. Go home to your families, eat and be merry. The borders are safe, safe, safe. And then he clapped his hands, spun three times and threw down some magic beans and voila, the borders were indeed safe. Just like that. Seriously, this is the guy the Democrats are mulling over for the White House in 2020? Well, with talk like this,
