Trump raises stakes on government shutdown,
demands border wall funds in spending bill

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/21/2017 6:07:03 AM

The White House said Thursday that it wants to see money for President Trump’s border wall included in the spending bill Congress must pass next week — a demand Democrats said sours negotiations and makes a government shutdown more likely. The demands mark a reversal for the administration, which had been saying it found enough money to build prototypes this year and wouldn’t need a major infusion of cash until next year. But White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday that the wall and the money for more immigration agents are priorities.

Government shutdowns have become laughable scare tactics. They should live in fear that they will not be missed and we will make it permanent.

#3, what gets me is what happens when the furloughed ´non-essential´ gubmint employees eventually get back to work (so to speak).

But then a rule is passed so they get the back pay for the days they missed, instead of being docked that money. It´s like paid vacation that doesn´t come out of your leave balance. That´s inconceivable!

Shut it down. Let all of the ´non-essentials´ go home thinking they will get paid anyway( as happened in the past) and then send them their first unemployment checks stapled to a pink slip( and a nice note that says their position has been eliminated). Because it could and should be.

Having closed out the first one hundred days of the new administration, an assessment of the new president´s accomplishments is in order. By any objective historical measure, the achievements of President Hillary Rodham-Clinton have been extraordinary. Let´s start with the Budget and Defense One - Two Punch: The Omnibus Budget Act of 2017, passed by Congress and signed by the president in record time, calls for beefy increases in the budgets of the administration´s surrogate agencies: a 31% increase for the EPA, a 6% increase for the Department of Energy, and a 12% increase for the Department of the Interior,

The Washington Post‘s brash Twitter voice Dave Weigel is urging journalists to avoid the death trap he claims is Fox News’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” Wait — shouldn’t political journalists be willing to discuss the media if they expect others to spill their guts on politics? Nope, not according to Weigel. (Snip) Weigel’s stern warning came in response to BuzzFeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith‘s appearance on Carlson’s program Wednesday night in which he was asked to discuss “diversity” in his newsroom. Smith wasn’t phenomenal. There were moments he looked foolish — like the one in which he was asked about a reporter

Against the backdrop of President Trump assembling the mid-east alliance group, and with the previous diplomatic outline of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in mind, the travel schedule is not necessarily a surprise. (Photos) WHITE HOUSE – President Trump has accepted the invitation of King Salman bin Abd Al-Aziz, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, to visit the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia later this month. The visit will reaffirm the strong partnership between the United States and Saudi Arabia and allow the leaders to discuss issues of strategic concern, including efforts to defeat terrorist groups and discredit radical ideologies.

In a sit-down meeting Thursday with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, President Trump smoothed over relations strained by a flap over refugees early in his presidency and reaffirmed the key alliance for confronting North Korea and Islamic terrorism. Mr. Trump downplayed the early rift over Mr. Turnbull wanting the U.S. to accept 1,250 refugees stranded off the coast of Australia, saying reports of the testy phone call were “exaggerated” and “fake news.” “We are not babies. We had a very, very great call,” said Mr. Trump. “We can put the refugee deal behind you and move on,” said Mr. Turnball

Democratic efforts in Congress to take away nuclear first strike capabilities from President Donald Trump have received a rush of support from voters across the country worried that the president might order an attack in North Korea or elsewhere. Roughly half a million people have signed a petition supporting a bill reintroduced by two Democrats that would require a declaration of war by Congress before the president could launch an unprovoked nuclear weapon. The president would still retain the power to launch a nuke if a foreign foe attacked first. “While it is vital for the president to have clear authority to respond to nuclear
