White House warns Democrats
not to ‘hold the government
hostage’ as budget talks resume

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan, Dave Boyer

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/3/2018 6:24:29 PM

The White House kicked off a new round of budget negotiations with Congress on Wednesday, as President Trump told Democrats to abandon a “radical political agenda” on immigration and agree to a no-strings spending bill to keep the government open beyond a mid-January deadline. Democrats are hoping to include a long list of their priorities in the bill, which is due by Jan. 19: a boost in domestic spending, a pension bailout for some labor-union members, more money for the anti-opioid fight and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, and a permanent legal solution for illegal immigrant “Dreamers.”

Comments:
The dRATS politicians obfuscate and threaten US through their media pundits whenever there is the chance that the government may be shut down because of an annual needed spending bill. Until the GOP gets a backbone, they will keep all of US hostage to their bad desires against US. Let´s hope that President Trump won´t blink this time.

Unions are a private enterprise and the government has no business getting involved. The unions underfunded pensions are not the problem of the American people, it´s between the union and it´s leaders! The government didn´t contribute to my company sponsored retirement, so why should I contribute to a union plan I have no stake in?

SEC Judge Appointments
Unconstitutional, U.S. High Court Says
Reuters, by Andrew Chung    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 6/21/2018 7:25:33     Post Reply
Washington - The U.S. Supreme Court gave presidents more control over key jobs in federal agencies on Thursday, ruling that the way the Securities and Exchange Commission selected in-house judges who enforce investor protection laws violated the U.S. Constitution. The justices agreed with President Donald Trump’s administration that the SEC, in having low-level staff install administrative law judges, infringed upon powers given to the president in the U.S. Constitution’s “appointments clause” regarding the filling of certain federal posts. The ruling could reverberate through the federal government, which has nearly 2,000

Why are so many migrants crossing

Austin, TX - Patricia de Jesús Flores waited at a homeless shelter on the Mexican side of the U.S. border this week with her 7-year-old son, who she says witnessed a murder on a rooftop — one reason they left their home in Honduras. “If my country would be OK, I would be there happily with my child,” Flores told NBC News. "I would not try to cross." While forced family separations — which President Donald Trump on Wednesday announced he would end —was a new way by the administration of dealing with illegal immigration on the southern border, the violence, drug cartels, gangs and poverty ravaging Central America have

Pentagon Asked to Prepare Housing
for Up to 20,000 Migrant Children

Washington - (Video) The Department of Health and Human Services on Thursday asked the Pentagon to make preparations to house as many as 20,000 unaccompanied migrant children on American military bases, a United States official said. New, makeshift detention facilities are being envisioned to house thousands of immigrant families that are crossing illegally into the United States following President Trump’s executive order on Wednesday, which called for detaining parents and children together instead of separating them. The request comes as federal agencies on Thursday offered competing and contradictory explanations of what was

Moscow - Burger King says it’s sorry for offering a lifetime supply of Whoppers to Russian women who get pregnant from World Cup players. (Tweet) The announcement was removed Tuesday from Burger King’s social media accounts but is still circulating among Russian social network users. It promised a reward to women who get “the best football genes” and “ensure the success of the Russian team for generations to come.” The fast-food company posted a Russian-language statement on local network VKontakte saying, “We offer apologies for the announcement we made. It was too offensive.” The company didn’t respond

The left has certainly been crying their share of tears over the border kids who’ve been pulled from their illegally crossing parents’ sides — in fact, almost as many tears as the little kids themselves. Who knows. Maybe they really are that sad. Maybe when MSNBC’s Rachel Maddowgulped and weeped her way through a breaking report of “tender-age shelters” in Texas, she truly did become overwhelmed with grief at the imagined sad plight of little babies being ripped from parents’ arms and plopped into chicken cages to fend for themselves. Maybe she truly did cut video feed to her colleague and make a

Judge denies request by Paul
Manafort to suppress evidence

Washington - A federal judge on Thursday declined a request by President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort to suppress evidence seized by investigators for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office from a storage unit. Manafort, who is currently jailed in Virginia, had argued the evidence was seized improperly after an FBI agent got one of his employees to open the storage unit, rather than asking Manafort for permission or seeking a warrant. But Judge Amy Berman Jackson for the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia rejected that argument, saying “law enforcement agents do not need a warrant to

Vasillios Pistolis, a United States Marine Corps lance corporal who ProPublica and Frontline identified as a neo-Nazi and assailant during last August’s bloody white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., has been convicted at a court martial on charges of disobeying orders and making false statements. Pistolis, 19, will be imprisoned for a month, docked pay and reduced in rank to private first class, and then likely forced from the Corps, according to a USMC spokesman. Pistolis, a water support technician, was treated as low-level offender by military authorities, who tried him at what is known as a summary court martial,

Nasa prepares for real-life Armageddon:

Hollywood may have got it right after all. Nasa and the National Nuclear Security Administration have announced they are now working together on the possibility of destroying hazardous asteroids using nuclear weapons. (Snip) Scientists believe there are around one million near-Earth asteroids that could pose a threat to our planet – but only a tiny fraction have so far been detected. Dramatic proof that any of these can strike Earth came on 15 February last year, when an unknown object exploded high above Chelyabinsk, Russia, with 20 - 30 times the energy of the Hiroshima atomic bomb. The resulting shock

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich resigned suddenly after a "past consensual relationship with an Intel employee" came to light, the company said Thursday. His unexpected exit comes after an internal and external investigation ordered by the company "confirmed a violation of Intel’s non-fraternization policy, which applies to all managers," Intel said in a statement. "Given the expectation that all employees will respect Intel’s values and adhere to the company’s code of conduct, the board has accepted Mr. Krzanich’s resignation," Intel said. Intel chief financial officer Robert Swan was appointed as interim CEO.

Four Republican senators called Wednesday for an investigation of National Science Foundation grants, saying the federal agency had ventured beyond science and into political advocacy, particularly with its support of a program to encourage TV weathercasters to report on global warming. The four senators called for a probe by the foundation’s inspector general, saying the $4 million program to increase climate reporting by meteorologists “is not science - it is propagandizing.” The senators — Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Rand Paul, R-Ky., James Lankford, R-Okla., and Jim Inhofe, R-Okla. — said the program run by the nonprofit

Wildlife authorities in Australia are struggling to deal with a spike in intoxicated kangaroos, and are being forced to euthanize the marsupials. The animals are getting “drunk” after eating phalaris grass—also known as canary grass. This intoxication causes strange behaviour and can eventually advance to damage the central nervous system, Yahoo7 News reported. (Snip) “The alkaloids in the grass affects the brain and causes strange behaviour,” Mead explained. “They look like they are drunk, they stagger around and fall over and shake their heads.” “It’s quite horrible seeing a kangaroo that’s affected and it’s hard for our

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s wife has been charged with allegedly misusing public funds to order meals from outside the prime minister’s residence. Sara Netanyahu has been charged with using nearly $100,000 of state money to cover the unauthorized expenses between September 2010 and March 2013. She has denied any wrongdoing, and the prime minister has said the family is the victim of a political witch hunt by leftists and the media. Benjamin Netanyahu is also facing potential charges as the attorney general weighs whether to accept police recommendations to indict him in two corruption cases.

Actor Peter Fonda apologized Wednesday afternoon for a threatening tweet in which he said Americans upset with the White House´s separation of illegal-immigrant families ´should rip Barron Trump from his mother´s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles.´ The first lady´s office conferred with U.S. Secret Service about the incident. The agency wouldn´t say on Wednesday whether it had contacted the aging Oscar-winner directly. Fonda issued a statement hours later, shortly after President Donald Trump signed an executive order forbidding the government from detaining children separately from the adults who brought them across the U.S.-Mexico border. ´I tweeted

Washington - A Republican strategist who managed Sen.

"29 years and nine months ago I registered to vote and became a member of The Republican Party which was founded in 1854 to oppose slavery and stand for the dignity of human life.

Remember Anthony Weiner, also known as “Carlos Danger” — the former congressman who kept texting people pictures of well, umm, that part of his name? It all made quite the splash because he is married to Hillary Clinton’s consigliere and constant sidekick, Huma Abedin. Turns out that Anthony was such a perp — and so enthralled with his own — that he was sexting with a minor. That is a federal offense carrying up to 10 years in prison. So, he got raided by the New York Police Department and the New York office of the FBI. They seized his laptop computer.

Does someone from the Trump family, the Trump Cabinet, or even the Trump administration have to be assaulted or worse, killed, before we accept the fact that a growing number from the far-left have put a rhetorical bounty on their heads. If has-been actor Peter Fonda suggesting Barron Trump be "ripped from his mother´s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles" does not horrify you with the obscene brutality of its message, nothing ever will. From this cauldron of bubbling and putrid hate filled from the twisted minds of enraged liberal politicians, "journalists," entertainers, and academics, spews forth the dangerously

The cover is captioned, "Welcome to America." (Tweet/Video) On Wednesday, Trump signed an executive order aimed at putting an end to the practice of separating families, after calling on Congress, specifically Democrats, several times to change the laws.

The liberal media has been manufacturing crises ad-infinitum to divert the public’s attention away from the Trump administration’s tremendous achievements and the Democratic establishment’s corruption, conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh warns. While Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s damning report proves the FBI colluded with the Hillary campaign to exonerate her in the email investigation, Democrats are bombarding Americans with fabricated propaganda about Trump’s “heartless” immigration policy, which consists of the president enforcing the already established laws, Limbaugh explained Tuesday. “We are smack dab in the middle of another manufactured media crisis about the supposed ‘Donald Trump, that purposely, wontedly,
