Nancy Pelosi says funding for
Trump´s ´immoral, ineffective,
expensive´ border wall is off the table

Business Insider, by Joe Perticone

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 12/6/2018 1:04:53 PM

WASHINGTON — Nancy Pelosi, who´s set to become the next speaker of the House when the new Congress begins in January, shot down negotiations that would include funding for President Donald Trump´s long-desired wall along the nearly 2,000-mile US-Mexico border. Pelosi told reporters on Thursday that pairing wall funding with a permanent solution to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was not on the table and that she would prefer Congress pass a continuing resolution for Homeland Security before Christmas.

Need to take the $1.5 billion in-hand, and then work on adding more as time goes by, just like the Democrats do, and claim it "a good first step", again, like the Democrats always state after getting any type of funding.

Nancy doesn´t have a solution to this problem except amnesty, which is not a solution.

Amnesty is an insult to the intelligence of the American people, and if anything, ensure anyone looking to become a citizen put their name at the end of the current legal list, get processed in the normal manner and fashion.

No wall funding, Pelosi, and anything else you want will be vetoed by the President.
You will have nothing to show for your time as speaker. You will have been a waste of time and taxpayers´ money. (Nothing new)
You will be a failure right out of the gate.

The Democrats will not go along with any sort of enhanced borderline barrier that will keep illegal aliens who the Democrats consider to be future socialist oriented Democrat voters out of the USA.

In the end if any immigration related measure passes out of the Congress through the dying Republican Congress, it is bound to give the Republicans a lot of legalized future cheap foreign labor that can be hired at low wages by their business connected donor class, in return for a liberal Democrat crafted amnesty that will eventually provide the Democrats with millions of new socialist oriented voters in the years ahead. No surprise, as that is what has been going on for decades as the politicians play their immigration games.

But then, in the spirit of full disclosure 3/4 of the Republican Congress Critters really don´t want any border controls either, especially a wall which would be an actual barrier, unlike political policy easily changed back to´look the other way / catch and release´. They do the will of their globalist Chamber of Commerce masters, not the will of us peasant constituents.

Congress (and the president) have been skating by on Continuing Resolutions for years, obviating (they think) the budget battles of the Gingrich/Clinton era and before.

Trump should use this to his advantage and ignore any spending directives or restraints from Congress until and unless a budget is passed.

Hoover Dam was halfway done by now and that was 1933 ie the Depression.

Called the DC office of ´my´ now defeated US Rep - TX-32 Pete Sessions - and asked if he was going to vote to fund Border Wall? Dejected staffer gave the same weasel-wordy answer - ´I´m not sure, but I´ll let the Congressman know...´.

Told the guy Pete still has a chance to do the right thing and go full-in on border wall funding. But Pete doesn´t have cojones to do so - if he had done that originally, bet he would have been re-elected.

Told the staffer hope Pete enjoys retirement in Florida with his 2nd wife, since he hasn´t lived in Dallas nor had a public event for several years.

Not at all, #10, Ryan INTENDED to stop the wall, as he was ordered to do by his paymaster at US Chamber of Commerce, Tom Donahue. And, I doubt that McConnell wanted the wall funded, either.

Both leaders doing their very best to stop the wall.

They are effective leaders, not ineffective.

They just don´t want what the President and his voters want.

A couple of things comes to mind about this. First, Trump openly supported and encouraged Pelosi for Speaker. She now wears the Scarlet T for the duration of her tenure. Second, and perhaps most important, Trump now has the situation in which he can expose the entire lot of Swampers. The Dems will believe they can wail and curse Trump with endless interrogations and mind numbing hearings. The GOPe will stand with Pelosi and the rabid fools and so paint themselves into a corner come 2020.

Now the good part. The members of the Freedom Caucus draft competitors in weak GOPe districts and bring Trump in to fan the flames. He campaigns in purple districts to win back Dem seats. The Congress flips and then the wall gets done.

The Swamp doesn’t give up easily, but neither does Trump.

Going all in on attacking President Trump isn’t proving to be a particularly effective business strategy for media outlets. The Weekly Standard, a 28-year old neoconservative institution, is reportedly headed towards dissolution after its founder, Bill Kristol, devoted almost three years of work to attacking the President and his supporters. It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base. The same week that The Weekly Standard’s troubles broke, Vanity Fair dropped a bombshell report about the struggles faced by those hip, millennial-targeted left-wing rags

The Washington Post recently reported on an emergent but thankfully aborted miscarriage of justice. Christopher Precopia, a 21-year old Texan, was arrested and charged with burglary of a habitation, for breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s home and assaulting her. His accuser detailed to the police how he strong-armed his way into her home, pushed her down, punched her in the face, and carved an “X” into her chest with a box cutter. It was all very Manson-esque and depraved. It was also all very false. The accuser claimed Precopia assaulted her on September 20, 2017, at 7:20 p.m.

People either love or hate Christmas music – there’s rarely ever anyone in between. I happen to fall into the former camp, although my holiday playlist is about half Christmas music and half regular music. One of the problems with Christmas music is that we hear the same songs over and over again throughout the season. It’s easy even for someone who loves Christmas music to get tired of it by the end of December. But that doesn’t have to be the case. You can find plenty of terrific Christmas songs that you won’t hear

Frank Kameny, the last century’s greatest gay-rights activist, filed the first-ever Supreme Court petition challenging discrimination against homosexuals. He led some of the first gay-rights demonstrations. He was the first openly gay congressional candidate. He spearheaded the challenge to the psychiatric establishment’s categorization of homosexuality as a mental illness. He fought tirelessly against sodomy laws. He did a lot more than that. But there is one thing he never did—at least to my own recollection and that of associates of his whom I consulted. He did not use the term LGBTQ, or any of its variations.

Remember when Michael Avenatti was the Democrats’ big hope for 2020? He wasn’t just that, though. Parachuting in to launch his presidential campaign to the DNC’s “Ethnic Council” and its black caucus in Chicago in August, he enthusiastically adopted the party’s guiltspeak. “People that look like me, white men, we need to stand up,” he told his minority audience, exactly the kind of cost-free identity-politics self-castigation without which no Democrat can hope to rise very far. In the same month, Avenatti spoke at the “Democratic Wing Ding” dinner in Iowa and announced plans to visit at least 20 more states.

Stop comparing Beto O´Rourke´s potential
2020 presidential bid to Barack Obama´s in 2008

As outgoing Rep. Beto O´Rourke flirts with a 2020 Democratic presidential bid, his already soaring stock among the media has been surging even higher, and he is even drawing comparisons to former President Barack Obama, who was a relatively inexperienced national politician before he captured the presidency in 2008. But such comparisons are unwarranted. O´Rourke, D-Texas, who was the most profiled candidate of the 2018 election cycle, quickly drew media buzz about a 2020 presidential run after losing his Senate race to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. A poll of the race from the liberal MoveOn showed O´Rourke narrowly edging out

New York City’s annual Shakespeare in the Park is the worst kind of theater. Washington’s annual government-shutdown drama is the second-worst kind. Oddly enough, Chuck Schumer figures in both. I wrote off the alfresco performances in Central Park after the Public Theater decided that what Shakespeare’s A Winter’s Tale really needed was a political speech by Senator Schumer, who wandered onto the stage at one point — after Bill de Blasio’s campaign-rally speech but before the Muppets, if I recall that slightly surreal evening correctly — to make a few of his habitually banal political observations before shouting “Vote Democratic!”

WASHINGTON – The Trump administration is on the verge of moving forward with a significant rollback of an Obama-era clean water regulation that has become a rallying cry for farmers and property-rights activists opposed to federal overreach. The new proposal, whose details will be unveiled Tuesday morning by EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler and other administration officials, is expected to ease government oversight of small bodies of water, undoing a regulation President Donald Trump has called "a massive power grab." The new rule would replace an Obama administration regulation, known as the "Waters of the United States" rule

Another day, another avalanche of news about the President: berating Democratic leaders on camera; unceremoniously announcing the departure of his chief of staff; calling his former Secretary of State “dumb as a rock.” It never lets up. Trump is a ubiquitous, suffocating presence in American life. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. The modern presidency is the framers’ worst nightmare, a flatly unconstitutional concentration of power. As the Trump era has made abundantly clear, the office itself — its size, scope, and prominence in American life — is the driving force of dysfunction in our politics.

California Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye told CALmatters that she had been deliberating her decision for a while but made up her mind after watching the backlash following multiple sexual assault allegations leveled against Kavanaugh. Christine Blasey Ford, a professor from Palo Alto, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in September, alleging that Kavanaugh assaulted her in the 1980s when they were both high school students.

The Weekly Standard will be no more. There is no real reason we are witnessing the magazine’s demise other than deep pettiness and a personal desire for bureaucratic revenge on the part of a penny-ante Machiavellian who works for its parent company. There would at least be a larger meaning to the Standard’s end if it were being killed because it was hostile to Donald Trump. But I do not believe that is the case.
