While Rome burns, Congress is
wasting its time honoring crappy
beverages like Cheerwine

Washington Examiner, by Nicole Russell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/19/2017 2:38:45 PM

It seems like regardless of party we should all be able to agree that government should be more efficient. Likewise, it seems like, regardless of political affiliation, we should also agree government is currently as efficient as a president trying to evade national scandal within his first year in office. The United States isn´t actually Rome and maybe it´s not really burning, yet with all the responsibilities Congress juggles, they often spend their time on pointless issues like passing inconsequential resolutions. This week saw one of the stupidest ones yet. Ever had Cheerwine? On Wednesday Rep. Ted Budd, R-N.C., introduced

Comments:
Un.freaking.believable. Never underestimate the stupidity of our representatives. The world is on fire and this moron wastes time on this?? This surprises me coming from Budd. He has an ´A´ rating from Conservative Review.

On the flip side of the argument...he does work for the people of his district and honoring a company that has survived in the district for 100 years keeping people employed (especially the last eight) deserves some recognition even if the writer thinks the product is "crappy."

Congress - what are your REAL priorities?

Removing and replacing Obamacare,
Business and Personal Tax cuts ASAP,
Get the darned Wall built,
Repeal Dodd-Frank,
Continue laying off unnecessary Federal employees, especially at State, IRS, and the EPA,
and fire that accursed IRS Commissioner Koskinen!

These are the things that Congress should be working on, not passing dopey resolutions that affect only one person at a time - even that person is nice. They are only one person.b

Trump, Schumer agree to pursue
plan to repeal the debt ceiling
Washington Post, by Damian Paletta*    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 9/7/2017 6:18:40     Post Reply
President Trump and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) have agreed to pursue a deal that would permanently remove the requirement that Congress repeatedly raise the debt ceiling, three people familiar with the decision said. Trump and Schumer discussed the idea Wednesday during an Oval Office meeting. The two, along with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D–Calif.), agreed to work together over the next several months to try to finalize a plan, which would need to be approved by Congress. One of the people familiar described it as a “gentlemen’s agreement.”

Ever since Charlottesville, the tyrannical left has been on the rampage, trying to purge anyone and everyone who had an improper thought. Well, except for Margaret Sanger, apparently. I guess she´s cool. That´s the mentality at work at the University of California-Berkeley, where students have been battling with administrators to purge the name of a past university president from one campus building. (Snip) However, the brave warriors at Berkeley have another name in mind to grace Barrows Hall. Who is this outstanding individual more worthy of recognition?

"The Final Torture": Democrats
Bemoan Clinton´s Book Tour
Vanity Fair, by Bess Levin    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 9/7/2017 2:37:43     Post Reply
On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton’s memoir slash election postmortem, What Happened, will be released, followed by a cross-country airing of grievances-cum-national book tour that will run through December. Perhaps unsurprisingly, members of her own party and even people who worked to get her elected are less than enthused about the 15-city tour, which kicks off in D.C. on September 18. (Snip) Democratic strategists worry it will inflame tensions within the Democratic Party just when it most desperately needs to be coming together. The book and tour are coming “maybe at the worst possible time, as we are fighting some of the

The head of the Pentagon’s Defense Security Service says the troubled and clogged process to grant security clearances has led to criminals receiving access to classified information. “I’ve got murderers who have access to classified information,” Daniel Payne, head of the Defense Security Service, said during a conference Wednesday, McClatchy reports. “I have rapists. I have pedophiles. I have people involved in child porn.” The Defense Security Service grants temporary security clearances for civilian workers and contractors, and the Department of Defense (DOD) has been so hard pressed for employees with clearances that some criminals have slipped through. “I grant the interim clearances

Vanity Fair, which previously featured Melania Trump on one of its covers, snubbed the First Lady of the United States in its 2017 best-dressed list – while featuring numerous liberals, including both Obamas. The list, comprised of over 40 people, is broken into eight-sections: Women, Men, Hollywood, Originals, Couples, Professionals, Special Citation, and Hall Of Fame. Missing from the list was First Lady Melania Trump, which is odd to say the least, given that Vanity Fair featured her on the cover of the Mexican edition of the magazine in January.

Hillary Clinton´s re-litigation of her 2016 election loss and broadsides at fellow Democrats in her new memoir are angering members of the party, with one former surrogate calling her selfish and wishing she would "shut the f**k up and go away." (Snip) In interviews with The Hill, former Clinton allies lashed out at her for score-settling when the Democratic Party is trying to move forward. "The best thing she could do is disappear," said one former Clinton fundraiser and surrogate described as having an active role at the party´s convention.

WASHINGTON — A bipartisan joint resolution being introduced in the Senate condemns “white nationalists, white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and other hate groups” for their role in the violence in Charlottesville, Va., last month, but does not mention so called anti-fascist groups. The joint resolution, signed by Democratic Sens. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine of Virginia and Republican Sens. Cory Gardner of Colorado and Johnny Isakson of Georgia, calls on the Trump administration to deploy all available resources to “improve data collection on hate crimes and to work in a coordinated way to address the growing prevalence of

More than 5,000 out-of-state

Washington Times, by Rowan Scarborough    Original Article

Over 6,000 individuals registered to vote in New Hampshire on Election Day Nov. 8 using out-of-state driver’s licenses and since then, the vast majority have neither obtained an in-state license nor registered a motor vehicle. Speaker of the New Hampshire House Shawn Jasper, a Republican, issued the findings on Thursday based on inquiries he made to the Department of State, which oversees elections, and the Department of Safety. Since election days, Republicans have charged that a significant number of non-resident Democrats, principally from Massachusetts, flowed into New Hampshire to vote illegally, tilting close elections to their party. Mr. Jasper’s findings give credence,

A Democratic senator tried to tie one of President Trump’s judicial nominees to a “hate group” Wednesday, saying the woman’s decision to speak at an event sponsored by Alliance Defending Freedom, a religious liberty law firm, makes her unfit to sit on a federal appeals court. Sen. Al Franken lobbed the charge at a hearing for Amy Coney Barrett, Mr. Trump’s pick to fill a seat on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Meanwhile, Mr. Trump’s nominee to the 6th Circuit, Michigan Supreme CourtJustice Joan Larsen, faced questions over a conservative advocacy group Judicial Crisis Network, which ran ads

Maj. Gen. James Linder, the head of Special Operations Task Force-Afghanistan, had to apologize this week for a leaflet drop in that is likely to alienate potential allies. U.S. Central Command released a statement on Wednesday taking ownership for a leaflet drop over Parwan Province that included Islamic text imposed over the an image of a dog. Troops who thought they were simply denigrating the Taliban committed a cultural and religious faux pas by pairing the text — known as the Shahada — with an animal many Muslims consider unclean. “The design of the leaflets mistakenly contained an image highly offensive to

Former Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Governor John Kasich expressed distaste in President Trump’s plan to repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and invited all immigrants to come live in his state. Kasich was in a particularly fiery mood on CBS This Morning Wednesday, and when asked if he supports Trump’s decision, he laughed incredulously: “No!

She still doesn’t get it. In her forthcoming memoir ‘What Happened” (out Tuesday), Hillary Clinton takes perfunctory responsibility for losing the election before spending nearly 500 pages blaming: Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, “rash FBI director” James Comey, Obama, the Russians, sexism, and, finally, the American people for not liking her enough. Sanders, she writes, had the gall to run against her even though he’s not a Democrat. “That’s not a smear, that’s what he says,” she writes. “He didn’t get into the race to make sure a Democrat won the White House, he got in to disrupt the Democratic Party.” Clinton bemoans the sexism

President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell´s tête-à-tête on Tuesday — after a summer of sniping between the two — lifted Republican hopes that the GOP was finally back in sync ahead of a brutal fall of fiscal deadlines.Not 24 hours later, the president cut a deal with Democrats on a short-term debt ceiling increase opposed by McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan. Just Wednesday morning, in fact, Ryan had scoffed at the Democratic offer that Trump accepted minutes later. In the aftermath, Republicans seethed privately and distanced themselves publicly from the deal.

(Video) - In her new memoir of the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton offers this analysis on why she lost: "I think it´s fair to say that I didn´t realize how quickly the ground was shifting under all our feet... I was running a traditional presidential campaign with carefully thought-out policies and painstakingly built coalitions, while Trump was running a reality TV show that expertly and relentlessly stoked Americans´ anger and resentment." Which is true. She ran a campaign larded with policy papers, with serious thoughts about serious things, with poll-tested stump speech lines designed to give some to everyone but all to no one.

The Washington National Cathedral will remove two stained glass windows featuring Confederate Gens. Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, the church said Wednesday, joining a growing list of cities and institutions that have removed statues of Confederate figures in the wake of last month´s violence in Charlottesville, Va. The National Cathedral said the Cathedral Chapter, its governing body, voted Tuesday to immediately take the windows down. Scaffolding was erected Wednesday morning as crews began the process of removing the stained glass windows, according to the Washington Post.

Hillary Clinton is still “at a loss” about her loss. In leaked excerpts from her upcoming election memoir “What Happened,” the defeated Democratic candidate admits to mistakes, regrets and “dumb” moves from her presidential bid — but says she still does not understand why so many Americans oppose her. “What makes me such a lightning rod for fury? I´m really asking. I´m at a loss,” she asks in the book. “I think it´s partly because I´m a woman.” (Snip) “I go back over my own shortcomings and the mistakes we made.

Late on a Monday afternoon in June, members of CNN’s elite investigations team were summoned to a fourth-floor room in the network’s glassy headquarters in Midtown Manhattan. A top CNN executive, Terence Burke, had startling news: three of their colleagues, including the team’s executive editor, were leaving the network in the wake of a retracted article about Russia and a close ally of President Trump. Effective immediately, Mr. Burke said, the team would stop publishing stories while managers reviewed what had gone wrong. It was a chilling moment for a unit that boasted Pulitzer Prize winners and superstar internet sleuths,

Ronald Reagan would “not kick the dreamers out of the US” if he were president today, according to his eldest son. “He would find a way to work with Congress and lead,” Michael Reagan tweeted Tuesday following the Trump administration’s announcement that it plans to do away with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, over the next six months.
