Republicans Considering Making Hurricane
Victims Pay for Trump’s Wall

Vanity Fair, by Bess Levin

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 8/30/2017 10:47:28 PM

Last week in Arizona, in an hour-long televised meltdown, President Donald Trump told supporters that he is willing to let the federal government shut down if funding for his beloved border wall is not included in Congress’s upcoming spending bill, which is due in September. “If we have to close down our government, we’re building that wall,” Trump said in Phoenix. “One way or the other, we’re going to get that wall.” Having failed to extract the necessary money from Mexico, and having soured on making U.S. consumers pay through import taxes, it seemed the president would be blackmailing Congress

Amazing how the liberal press can twist their words and headlines to satisfy their hatred and feed the weak minded!

if this is what passes for journalism or editorial opinion, we are in deeper trouble than I thought. Do you think these people know how stupid they look to the everyday man.

Republicans considering putting poison in every bag of sugar you buy too. A government shut down means 15% of the workforce gets free paid vacation from their jobs. 85% of the government is essential and they don´t shut down. Trump shutting the government down by vetoing a budget that doesn´t fund Wall construction is his option. McConnell gave Obummer more than everything he wanted funded to avoid the dreadful attacks he would get in the media if go forbid the government shut down. It´s worse than a global zombie apocalypse for McConnell. Let´s see how he accommodates Trump. If he doesn´t you know Trump will call for his replacement as majority never Trumper leader.

Joni Ernst, GOP senator, demands

A Republican senator introduced legislation Tuesday to cut down on the amount of money ex-presidents siphon from taxpayers, looking to limit their pensions and office expenses. Sen. Joni Ernst, Iowa Republican, said that while presidents should keep getting taxpayer-funded security details, they don’t need the more than $1 million in pensions and office equipment that former Presidents Obama and George W. Bush are each expected to cost in 2018. (snip) The Washington Times reported last month that Mr. Obama is poised to become the most expensive ex-president during his first full year out of office, in 2018. Between his $236,000 pension,

How Powerball manipulated the

At $700 million, Wednesday night’s Powerball prize is the second-largest lottery jackpot in its history, and the math is working out in favor of lotto commissions. Two years ago, your chances of becoming an instant millionaire were 1 in roughly 175 million. Now, the odds are 1 in roughly 292 million. Tweaks to the game in October 2015 increased the number of total balls, from 59 to 69, from which players need to pick five. It may seem like a modest change, but the odds of winning the jackpot shot up astronomically. So now it’s even harder to strike it rich with Powerball,

Just how badly are voters starving for true conservative change embodied through a man whose character they can proudly support? Well, according to the latest poll, Judge Roy Moore is leading a sitting senator (who has the support of the president) by 20 points headed into the Sept. 26 runoff. Last Tuesday, Roy Moore edged out Senator Luther Strange 39 percent to 33 percent in the GOP primary. However, landing the top spot in the first round doesn’t always guarantee a win in the runoff. That is why the latest poll from JMC Analytics is so earthshattering. The poll conducted several

Welcome to the Donald Trump status reality check for dummies, part 276. It seems like the established political and punditry world needs many frequent reminders about President Trump´s resilience every time he goes through a wounding incident like he is now with the beating he´s taking over his response to the violent protests in Charlottesville last weekend. So here are the several reasons why President Trump is simply down, but not out in any permanent sense. There are four key things to remember: (Note: None of the points below are excuses for President Trump. They simply explain why he´s not as vulnerable as

Guam´s leader said Monday that "sometimes a bully can only be stopped with a punch in the nose", in a spirited defence of President Donald Trump´s rhetoric against North Korea which has the island in its crosshairs. While Trump´s critics accuse him of inflaming tensions with Pyongyang, Guam governor Eddie Calvo said he was grateful the US leader was taking a strong stance against North Korean threats against his Pacific homeland. "Everyone who grew up in the schoolyard in elementary school, we understand a bully," Calvo told AFP. "(North Korean leader) Kim Jong-Un is a bully with some very strong

A man is charged with attempted murder and a raft of firearms offences after helping fend off home invaders, one of whom he’s now charged with shooting.

Police said that three men entered the residence with guns and a struggle took place with two men inside. The two in the home seized a firearm from one of the suspects and several shots were fired as the suspects fled. Police later located one of

Vladimir Putin’s former media czar was murdered in Washington, DC, on the eve of a planned meeting with the US Justice Department, according to two FBI agents whose assertions cast new doubts on the US government’s official explanation of his death. Mikhail Lesin’s battered body was discovered in his Dupont Circle hotel room on the morning of Nov. 5, 2015, with blunt-force injuries to the head, neck, and torso. After an almost yearlong "comprehensive investigation," a federal prosecutor announced last October that Lesin died alone in his room due to a series of drunken falls “after days of excessive consumption of

Hillary Clinton told CNN on Wednesday that it is time to abolish the Electoral College, part of a sweeping interview where the former Democratic nominee sought to explain why she lost the 2016 election. Clinton, in the interview with CNN´s Anderson Cooper, displayed her animus for fired FBI Director James Comey, reflected on her love for the people -- namely former President Bill Clinton -- who helped her get through the crushing loss and blasted the arcane election body that she believes helped Donald Trump win the presidency.

President Donald Trump on Thursday squashed earlier reports that he agreed to protect so-called “Dreamers” during a dinner meeting with two top Democrats, and said “massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent.” Trump’s Twitter post was in response to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who said in a statement that Trump agreed to protect Dreamers and agreed to terms on border security -- "excluding the wall." Trump tweeted, "The WALL, which is already under construction in the form of new renovation of old and

Hillary Clinton’s “What Happened” reads like a therapy session in which the losing presidential candidate works through the five stages of grief in real time. There’s plenty of anger, oodles of denial, bouts of depression, some desperate bargaining and finally a modicum of acceptance. But not before she’s thrown everyone from President Obama to Bernie Sanders under the bus for her loss to Donald Trump. Among her many laments? “I don’t think the press did their job,” as she tells Vox’s Ezra Klein. Expanding on that, she told him the press obsessed over Trump because she was talking policy while he was “good

After months of denials, the pretext for Susan Rice’s eavesdropping on Trump officials has finally been made public. It had been widely known that Obama’s former National Security Adviser had contrived to unmask the names of top Trump officials who had been spied on by the administration. And the same media that still treats Watergate as the Great American Scandal had claimed that there was nothing “improper” in an Obama loyalist eavesdropping on members of the opposition party. Every time Obama Inc. was caught eavesdropping on opposition politicians, it presented its spin in a carefully packaged “scoop” to a major media

Facing harsh criticism, a Harvard dean said early Friday morning that he was revoking his invitation to Chelsea Manning, a former United States soldier convicted of leaking classified information, to be a visiting fellow at the university. The sudden turnabout by the Harvard Kennedy School came after a day of intense backlash over the university’s announcement on Wednesday that Ms. Manning would become a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics this school year.

Hillary Clinton seemed to add Benghazi to her already-long list of culprits to blame for her upset loss to Donald Trump last November, on the heels of the five-year anniversary of the terror attack. In her first live interview since the election timed with the release of her new memoir “What Happened,” Clinton on Wednesday brought up the controversy over the Benghazi terror attack in response to a question about her likability. Clinton said she was unfairly criticized, even suggesting the incident was no different than past tragedies dating back to the Reagan administration. “Take the Benghazi tragedy—you know, I have one of

Trump and administration officials met with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., the latest in a series of overtures from the president to the other side of the aisle. A White House official told reporters afterward the "topics included tax reform, border security, DACA, infrastructure and trade." But Pelosi and Schumer focused on DACA,
