Shutdown showdown: White House says
it won’t negotiate with Senate Dems

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/20/2018 12:45:34 AM

The White House says it will not negotiate with the Democrats on immigration until the end of the federal government shutdown. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that, “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.” She adds, “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.” The government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to pass a spending deal. Sanders says, “Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown,” adding,

Sounds like President Trump is ignoring the histrionics of Chucky Schumer and his dRATS lemmings. Get out the easy chair and the popcorn. This may be a fun ride.

Sadly, you know the MSM will be spinning this to blame Trump and the Republicans within minutes.

But we know better.

Let´s just hope the sheeple realize the difference...

Perfect. Force that piece of schumer to fold up and do what he should have done tonight.

If it takes a month, OK, fine.

Schumer HAS TO LOSE in this.

HAS TO.

On Friday, Rush Limbaugh spoke about the Democrats being offered everything they want, but refusing to avert the shutdown for reasons that include wanting to take focus off the great economy, and as a distraction to avert media coverage of the FISA warrant memo. On Friday, a BBC World News journalist noted that if the shutdown does occur, it will be on the one year anniversary of President Trump’s inauguration. That noteworthy observation serves to raise the question of whether or not coincidence and opportunity have been seized by Democrats to taint that historical and meaningful date for President Trump.

Liberal Democrats are playing hard ball as there are too many potential future socialist oriented Democrat voters out here in the massive illegal alien population group that they do not want to allow to get away. Since 1965 the Democrats have been using the nation’s very liberal immigration system that they have shaped as a Democrat foreign born voter multiplier that has provided them many millions of votes. The wimpy Republicans allowed that to happen for decades because of all the cheap foreign labor that has been coming into the country that can be hired by Republican supporting business interests who fund many Republican political campaigns.

President Trump’s apparent negative response so far to calls for future massive illegal alien amnesties is a big reason why the Democrats and the Republican Never-Trumpers have tried to sabotage Trump and his Administration from the get-go. Right now many in Congress are supporting the special interests who want more sure Democrat voters and more legalized cheap foreign labor. The problem is that Trump was not elected to continue to go along with such unsound special interest driven public policies that have he affect of encouraging more mass uncontrolled illegal immigration instead of discouraging it and stopping it. The current Democrat position of putting illegal aliens in front of the American people and the Armed Forces is bound to come up the loser.

Well, we can know that this "shutdown" is not going to follow the usual dynamic the Dems are counting on. This administration will fight back and not succumb to the predictable media spin. The rubber really does meet the road here. PDT and co. cannot fully control the Democrat/MSM narrative, but they can dilute it by forcefully and consistently presenting the country with the facts.

Okay, now the democrats have shown their hand to the American people. Illegals over American citizens. Now it is time for Republicans to go out there and pound this truth home. Clearly, the President gave them every opportunity to come to the negotiating table and they chose this path. The Republicans can win on this issue if they stay focused and do not blink. Get to the microphones boys and girls and make the case. I hope the President sends out Mr. Mulvaney every day to set the record straight and inform the American people about what is going on and how this administration is working to diminish the hurt the Schumer Shutdown is causing innocent people. Now it is all about the messaging. Seize the day, Republicans. What’s it going to be, American citizens or illegal aliens. Pound that home.

Please keep in mind that all this is from the same party that gave us Revrum Wright’s feckless “God-Damn America”-hating, jug-eared, tone-deaf, purple-lipped, incompetent, lazy, vacationing, golfing, partying, vindictive, arrogant, self-absorbed, stumbling, narcissistic, sarcastic, corrupt, backstabbing, stone-walling, out-of-touch, stair-prancing, Gay-obsessed, dope-smoking, pot-headed, momjeans-wearing, shame gland missing, Peace-Prize stealing, no-records, two-bit, finger-pointing, belly-aching, Bush-blaming, wildly-spending, Treasury-looting, economy-wrecking, healthcare-destroying, process-circumventing, Benghazi bullshitting, selfie-posing, celebrity gad-fly, Deserter-honoring, ISIS appeasing, Iran-Funding, Jihad-coddling, taqiyah sunrise-drinking, weak, smidgen-toed, dithering, lawless, divisive, autocratic, sociopathic, phony baloney, plastic banana republic, Radical, Bomb-Throwing, Communist-Organizing Marxist, Muzlim Mallard disguised as a Black man who shut down WWII monuments for veterans, the same party who destroyed our health care system, from the same party who did not have even ONE party member who would vote FOR tax cuts, from the same party who just wants to bolster THEIR voter base solely in the interest of their own political power.
All while they tell us they’re just there for the little guy –
“Wherever there’s wrong-doing, We’ll be there!”
“Wherever there’s injustice, We’ll be there!”
“Wherever there’s corruption, We’ll be there!”
“And wherever there’s a bunch of big guys beating up

… and now we know the real reason why:
Because it´s anything to help Illegals!
Anything to Weaken America!
Anything to Screw-Over Americans!

They will express outrage over the content of his tweets but the truth will be out there and they will once again show themselves to be completely unhinged.

Good.

Having listened late last night / early this morning to both Mitch McConnell´s conciliatory speech and Chuck Schumer´s vicious attack on the Senate floor, the attitude of both is apparent. Now you know why I call Schumer “Senator Satan”.

Like the 1995 Gingrich shutdown, the 2018 Schumer Shutdown will benefit the nation in the long run, but for opposite reasons. The House stopgap bill was far too generous, and should not have offered long-term funding in it. What Abba Eban said about the Arabs: the minority Democrats did not “miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity” to get a lot of what they wanted.

Now it is time to take items OFF the table, rather than making any more concessions. Make it clear that the longer the Dems obstruct, the LESS they will get.

The Dems will blink, with elections looming and an angry public, many their own constituents, ready to extract revenge – on them.

As to the nation: it will not only survive but it will prosper. More government waste can be cut out. Low cost loans, if needed, can cover delayed military pay – they are very low risk for lenders. As the economy continues to accelerate, bonuses can more than make up for the interest.

We can only hope that bureaucrat unions will strike, so that their members - like PATCO in 1981 – can be fired.

And the sinister Machiavellian scheme of Senator Satan and his vile Democrat comrades to flood the nation with more illegal alien voters (SQUATters, not DREAMers - and their chain migration “relatives”) will have been thwarted.

I think the Democrats believe that shutting down the government will hurt the economy and offset any benefit the tax cuts will generate. Stop and think about that. They really don´t care about illegals but they do worry that President Trump will get credit for the economic recovery in progress. They want to stop that asap! So the Democrats will shutdown the government to hurt the economy and those working in it and could care less that out military goes unpaid! What a loathsome, radical, leftist party the msm and Democrats have become!

Perfect. I predict Trump will start eliminating those agencies of the government which have been running the swamp and pushing the communist/socialist agenda, and contracting or privatizing them with private sector companies that can to a better job more efficiently.

Start with the health care system. There is enough Money flowing in Medicare/medicaid and enough primary care physicians who have left primary care because it is no longer viable, that a better, simpler, health care system can be built: This would do two things -- divert people away from the broken system, leaving Obama Care and the greedy insurance companies to rot, save the government money, and eliminate all the free health care we are giving illegals.

Leave people in charge who know the value of an earned dollar to manage those dollars, and get rid of the people who can´t manage money because they think "the rich" should pay for everything.

Make it legal (since the government is shut down) for Medicare/Medicaid recipients to pay cash for their services and watching the value of their dollar, and watch the fraud committed by so many non-American born physicians dry up. There is fraud committed by U.S born providers as well, but from my vantage point, there has always been a preponderance of fraud and sub-standard care by people who have no ties to the locals they serve.

Again we see the ignorance of democrats. There are 51 senate republicans. 60 votes are needed. So you need at least 9 democrats support to keep govt open. So you see what should be obvious even to a brain dead democrat. Schumer, a pathetic scum bag, will shut the govt down because democrats support ILLEGAL ALIENS more than they support funding our military. Think about that for a minute. Are democrats that freakin stupid? I guess so.

The Lying Fake News LSM can spin their falsehoods all they want. We have 62,000,000 Trump supporters who know the truth about the them and the Demorats.

All the Demorats, the PC Liberals, and the RINOS in Congress are putting all Americans at risk.

Those who would shutdown the Government are putting the illegal aliens ahead of all of American´s safety.

I say keep the Government shut down until the Rats and the RINOS put Americans First.

The DACArachas cannot be legalized without stopping chain migration because they will turn around and legalize their parents.

I would like to also see a national discussion on Anchor Babies. At least DAPA was stopped by the courts and then eliminated by Donaldus Magnus without a peep from the Commiecrats. Start deportations with the DAPArachas.

The Democrat Party crosses our President at their own risk. Donald Trump is a counterpuncher and this will be fun to watch.

Trump on the 2013 shutdown on ´Fox and Friends´:

"Who is going to take the blame? In the board room here, who´s getting fired? Who is going to bear the brunt of the responsibility if indeed there´s a shutdown of our government? If you say who gets fired, it always has to be the top. Problems start from the top and they have to get solved from the top and the president is the leader and he´s got to get everybody in a room and he´s got to lead."

#33 Medicare recipients pay premiums. Medicaid is like welfare. There are major differences.

#7 Hoping that the shutdown lasts “...a looong time...” ignores the military troops who are most needy. Lower ranked men and women are barely able to survive as it is. Try telling creditors that you’ll pay when politicians decide to write checks again.
Democrats should have to pay bonuses to troops!

You can´t do business with Democrats or RINOs. They operate in bad faith, and they lie about everything.

The Democrats will do or say anything to distract from the astounding first year accomplishments of President Trump - and he is exactly correct. Democrats are choosing illegal immigrants over the sacrifices of our military.

Wish that I could see just one media headline that read, "Ugly Democrat Agenda Shuts Down Government".

About 70 AM this morning the sun came up. I was totally shocked that Mr Sun hadn´t gotten the message that the government was shut down. Of course today being a Saturday, in the normal scheme of things the government would be shut down anyhow.

Trump shouldn´t be negotiating with Chuckie anyway; that´s McConnell"s job.

Mueller Goes to Israel
New York Sun, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/22/2018 7:20:36     Post Reply
News that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has sent his gumshoes to Israel certainly does bring this matter full circle. The report is that they are looking into the activities of what the Jewish Telegraphic Agency news wire characterizes as “an Israeli-run social media firm that may have led a social media manipulation effort to help Donald Trump get elected.” Good luck to Mr. Mueller, is our sentiment. And, say, while he’s at it, maybe he can look into what the President Obama and his political operatives were doing in respect of the Israeli election of 2015. Remember that one? As President Clinton did in 1996, Mr. Obama threw everything

San Francisco - Democrats will not attend a meeting to learn about an FBI informant said to have gathered intelligence on the Trump presidential campaign, the White House said. (Snip) The members of Congress expected to attend are Rep Trey Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican who leads the House Oversight Committee, and Rep Devin Nunes, a California Republican and key Trump ally who has delved into allegations of FBI misconduct from his perch leading the House Intelligence Committee. Asked why Democrats would not be present, Ms Sanders told reporters “they haven’t been the ones requesting this information”.

Alphabet ‘smart’ diaper notion
an example of tech overkill
Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/22/2018 4:49:34     Post Reply
Alphabet, the parent company of Google, has filed for a patent via its Verily division that will tell parents, by way of technology, when their diapered babies have gone to the bathroom. This is a solid example of When Technology Goes Overboard. The world of parenting already has a notification procedure to alert when babies have gone poop. It’s called — crying. And on that, babies are generally pretty good at it. They cry when they’re wet; they cry when their diapers are soiled; they cry when they can’t sleep because their little bottoms have turned cold and uncomfortable from dried urine. As for the hard of hearing?

Giant predatory worms from tropical parts of Asia that have stealthily invaded French gardens pose a threat to local wildlife, scientists are warning. The voracious creatures have infiltrated gardens across the country and also French territories. A new study has collected reports of the unusual creatures, which are known to grow up to 40cm in length. Despite their size, these unusual creatures would have gone completely unnoticed were it not for the efforts of amateur naturalist Pierre Gros who took a photograph of an unidentified worm in 2013. “This photograph was sent from email to email to email and finally it came to me,”

A Republican lawmaker on Monday proposed a measure that would imprison government officials up to five years for obstructing the enforcement of federal laws. The Mayor Libby Schaaf Act was introduced by Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, and named after the Oakland mayor who earlier this year tipped off residents of an incoming crackdown on illegal immigrants by federal authorities. “I want lawless, sanctuary city politicians to hear this message clearly: if you obstruct ICE, you are going to end up in the cooler,” King said in a statement. “It shall be unlawful for any officer, employee, or agent of a State or political subdivision thereof

New York - A Florida city falsely sent out a “zombie alert” during a recent power outage. The Palm Beach Post reported that city administrators appeared to send a text alert to all residents around 1:45am Sunday that read “power outage and zombie alert for residents of Lake Worth and Terminus”. “There are now far less than seven thousand three hundred and eighty customers involved due to extreme zombie activity. Restoration time uncertain,” the alert read in all capital letters and red lettering. Terminus is the name of the city in the popular television show The Walking Dead. Power was out in the city of Lake Worth,

The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that Stacey Cunningham, 43, currently the NYSE’s chief operating officer, will take over for Thomas Farley on Friday, making her the first woman to hold that role.

Washington - The United States on Tuesday imposed sanctions on five Iranians it said had provided Yemen’s Houthis with expertise and weaponry that were then used to launch missiles at cities and oil infrastructure in Saudi Arabia. In a statement, the U.S. Treasury named the individuals as Mehdi Azarpisheh, Mohammad Jafari, Mahmud Kazemabad, Javad Shir Amin, and Sayyed Mohammad Tehrani. It said the first four individuals had worked with the Houthis through Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, while Tehrani had helped with the financing of the Revolutionary Guard.

As President Trump meets with South Korea’s president Tuesday to strategize for a crucial summit with North Korea, Vice President Mike Pence is warning North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un against trying to “play” Mr. Trump. Mr. Pence told Fox News that Pyongyang should not try to seek concessions from the U.S. in the planned June 12 denuclearization talks in Singapore. “It would be a great mistake for Kim Jong-un to think he could play Donald Trump,” Mr Pence said, according to excerpts of an interview made available by Fox. Asked if Mr. Trump could still walk away from the summit, the vice president replied:

The teenager accused of the massacre at a Texas high school Friday could be out of prison in 40 years and will definitely not be executed. Dimitrios Pagourtzis is 17 and the Supreme Court has barred both the death penalty and life without parole as cruel and unusual punishment for criminals under 18, according to a legal analysis by USA Today. The 2005 case of Roper v. Simmons said juveniles could not be executed, even if they’re legally considered adults in their state, because they are too immature and their brains underdeveloped. The 2012 ruling in Miller v. Alabama extended the logic to permanent

(Video) - The New York Police Department is investigating allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against celebrity chef Mario Batali. The NYPD confirmed the probe following a "60 Minutes" broadcast Sunday night in which an unnamed woman accused Batali of drugging and sexually assaulting her in 2005. She says she remembers joining him for a glass of wine at a Manhattan restaurant, then waking up on the floor feeling drugged and assaulted. She says she talked to the police but never filed a report. Batali issued a statement to CBS denying that he assaulted the woman. Batali stepped down from daily operations at his

After about thirteen years of being a loyal customer of Netflix, the time has come for me to say goodbye. (Snip) Given that I’m a conservative, one might be inclined to believe my choice to leave Netflix is predicated upon the company’s most recent decision to partner with Barack and Michelle Obama’s new company, called “Higher Ground Productions,” to produce loads of new content. And in a way, I guess that’s correct. But this choice by Netflix has not alone led me to this decision. Rather, this was the straw that finally broke the camel’s back -- the latest in a series of indicators that the network has become little more than a

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer fumed Tuesday over the Trump administration´s "outrageous" decision to exclude Democrats from an upcoming meeting in which Justice Department officials will give House Republicans documents related to the FBI´s investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Republican lawmakers had been demanding DOJ release the classified documents for months. “The only thing more outrageous than this meeting occurring at all is the fact that it’s now partisan,” the New York Democrat said. “It is crystal clear that Chairman Nunes’ intent is to interfere with the investigation, and Speaker Ryan is allowing it to

The FBI’s use of Confidential Human Sources (the actual term) is tightly regulated and essential to protecting the country. Attacks on the FBI and lying about its work will do lasting damage to our country. How will Republicans explain this to their grandchildren?” Comey tweeted.

Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday urged Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI officials to "simply say no" to President Trump´s demand for an expanded investigation into his claims of FBI wrongdoing as it relates to his campaign. "More DOJ norms being eroded. Trump-a SUBJECT of the investigation-wants access to material related to the inquiry," Holder tweeted. (Snip) His latest criticism of the president came as Trump and his allies have claimed, without evidence, that an FBI informant spied on his campaign for political purposes. On Sunday, Trump said he would demand the DOJ investigate the matter.

According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Tuesday that the FBI was not at any point spying on the Trump campaign. “They were not. They were spying — a term I don´t particularly like — on what the Russians were doing," Clapper said during an appearance on The View to promote his new book, “Facts and Fears: Hard Truths From A Life In Intelligence.” The FBI, Clapper said, was simply trying to answer the question, "Were the Russians infiltrating, trying to gain access, trying to gain leverage and influence?" Clapper´s comments came shortly after the Justice Department, under pressure

The Democratic Party has no leader right now. No one. Former President Barack Obama is palling around with his billionaire, island-owning buddies. Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders is kicking back in one of his three houses (we’re guessing the big one on Lake Champlain). And the 20-some 2020 presidential wannabes are all jockeying for media attention (and cash, lots of cash). In such a void, that leaves just one person with the spotlight: the bitter, ever-angry, petty, vindictive Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton told the Democratic Women’s Leadership Forum on Friday that she would be a foundational part of the anti-Trump

It happens every 405,000 years. The Earth’s orbit gradually changes shape from almost circular to slightly elliptical over a period of 202,500 years, and then starts returning to form over the next 202,500 years — like a metronome swinging side to side. Right now, we are in an almost perfectly circular orbit around the sun, and soon — within some thousands of years, that is — we will start moving toward the elliptical. This happens because of the Earth’s gravitational interactions with other planets, especially Jupiter and Venus — Jupiter because it is very large, and Venus because it is very near.

James Clapper, the former Director of National Intelligence, responded on ABC’s “The View” Tuesday to President Trump calling him a “lying machine” in a tweet last month. “What that stems from is an exchange I had with Sen. Wyden five years ago in March of 2013 about a surveillance program,” Clapper explained, “and he was asking me about one, and I was thinking about another. So I made a mistake. I didn´t lie." Co-host Meghan McCain pressed Clapper on the issue, arguing that technically Clapper did tell a lie about the NSA program. "What you´re referencing though,” she said, “when you´re talking about
