Schumer withdraws offer on Trump´s wall
Politico, by Burgess Everett & Seung Min Kim

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/23/2018 12:33:01 PM

Chuck Schumer is taking his big spending boost for Donald Trump’s border wall off the table. The Senate minority leader, through an aide, informed the White House on Monday that he was retracting the offer he made last week to give Trump well north of the $1.6 billion in wall funding Trump had asked for this year, according to two Democrats. And now they say Trump will simply not get a better deal than that on his signature campaign promise. Schumer “took it off,” said Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), the No. 2 Senate Democrat. “He called the White House yesterday and said

Comments:
Thanks to the filthy Democrats there will be nothing but more chaos. His base must have ripped Schumer apart. They are just goading Trump. I´m sick of this entire mess.

Enormous pressure from their base causes meltdown ... what to do ... what to do? That old saying comes back to haunt Schumer, Pelosi, Dems et al, "live by the snowflake base, die with the snowflake base."

It wasn´t actual money.
It was merely an "authorization" to ask for that much actual money.
Border security has always been promised "authorization" for their funding needs, but the actual money never comes.

The wall WILL be funded, believe it.

Schumer has a worthless hand. If it was draw poker he would ask for 3 cards. Desperate, losing, little chance.

Chucky Shumer can´t take away what he hasn´t got to offer. The building of and completion of the Wall (700 mikes), was all from President Trump´s daily campaign promise to his voters. It will get built and I am sure that DACA will not be passed to be signed by him, nor the Dreamers allowed to flourish here.

Why? We can see in the Republik of Kalifornia that the dRATS not only are claiming "sanctuary" status statewide, but they are issuing their driver´s licenses to illegal aliens in an effort to thwart future "Federal elections". This gives illegal aliens untold rights not specified within our laws. in an end around play like 0bama did with his treasonous Iranian nuclear deal. Also, chain immigration, unvetted Muslims, amnesty and any other dRATS machinations must not be tolerated.

President Trump needs to challenge our federal courts if need be, to establish the "Separation of Powers", so his will NOT be taken away by activist judges or inaction of our GOP to dRATS unending schemes.

Does he even understand that he is the MINORITY leader? That isn´t referring to race Chuckie, that is referring to the fact that you guys are NOT in charge at the moment.

If you think we have forgotten what your party did to Reagan and this country regarding border security, you really need to stop sniffing your gym socks.

I agree woith #8. The Democrats probably already have a Judge lined up to reverse any EO Trump puts out regarding the DACAS. I think Trump should simply let the DACA EO, put in by Obama, expire. Then he should say, You Democrats want it so bad, YOU figure out to support them because the American people don´t want to! Cut of any Welfare, chips, Rent subsidies or health care they are getting. Oh yeah, stop ICE from sending them back on Planes getting preferred boarding. Busses work fine!

Told ya.

Like jihadis suing for a ceasefire when surrounded (remember Tora Bora?), the "Schumer surrender" was just a tactic to have our side drop its guard. Just Senator Satin (satin would work, too - he is very slippery) doing what demons do. Anyone who is surprised should "get woke".

Now stop celebrating and gird up. This fight is only going to get nastier.

No deal. Nada. Pound sand, Senator Satan. Deport all illegals - including the DACA "valedictorians". Make them enter through the front door, if they can qualify.

Now Satan and his flying monkeys can "deal" with that. We´ll see you at the polls.

Why are we building a wall when Trump is continuing Obama’s mad policy of flying just arrived illegals to wherever they want in our country?

Why doesn’t Trump ask Congress to change law that prevents ICE from shipping illegal “minors” back home instead of releasing them into our society?

Promises of “Build a Wall” are bogus and as hollow as “Crooked Hillary”.

$1.6 billion for the wall is less than 2 hours daily expenditure for the US government.

Big whoop! Spend it then take ten percent out of every dollar Mexicans send back to Mejico! We´d be repaid in less than two months! Two percent and we´d have it back in less than a year!

1, 4, 7.... this is all nonsense, Kabuki theater meant to fool us all into thinking the Pubs and Dems are fighting over illegal immigration. They are not, it is what they both want, to please the people who really pay them, the businesses of this country who want cheap labor... but the Repubs can´t just vote with the Dems without losing their base, so they collude with the Dems to save their elected jobs while (in reality) doing the bidding of their real employers. Now they claim they faced Schumer down? Nonsense, they´re just clearing the way to vote to make all those illegals legal, even the MS-13 members of the Mexican drug cartel.. its what they had to do, don´cha know, to keep the government running. They talk about the "dreamers", supposedly all scholars in high school somehow blocked from going to college, when in reality the "scholars are every "kid" brought to the US illegally since the days of Ronald Reagan (it would be interesting to know how many actually go to college or tried to, or were even scholastically qualified to do so); when we give them citizenship, we are also allowing their parents and relatives to stay, too... their reward for breaking our laws.

We need the wall, an end to the Visa Lottery and an end to chain migration. We do NOT need these DACA rebel-rousers and moochers. Let it expire. If a deal is made to legalize them, they should never be allowed to vote - not citizenship, just legal status.

And, as far as chain migration goes with these DACA people - if their parents brought them here when they were kids, then why do they have to send to get their parents here?

Chuck U will be eating jello after whatever DACA bill somehow gets to Trump and he vetos it thus sending it to the trash can and probably sending Chuck into an epileptic seizure. McGutless Mitch can use the nuclear option any time he has the courage to do it but because he is such a pink panty waisted old fool it won’t happen because you know he wants to prove Republicans can govern in a bipartisan manner. If Chuck U was the majority leader they would be slamming the nuclear option down Republicans throats big time.

After Schumer caved, President Trump is in a position of massive power now. It´s that simple.

President Trump is not going to sign off on DACA unless he gets a border wall and an end to chain migration (plus probably some more stuff).

If the Republi-CAN´Ts in Congress have any brains, they will back him 100%. The American people want control and limits on immigration -- plus an END to the invasion of ILLEGAL ALIENS!!!!!

Secret FBI source for Russia investigation met
with three Trump advisers during campaign
Washington Post, by Robert Costa*    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/18/2018 10:15:04     Post Reply
In mid-July 2016, a retired American professor approached an adviser to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign at a symposium about the White House race held at a British university. The professor took the opportunity to strike up a conversation with Carter Page, whom Trump had named a few months earlier as a foreign policy adviser. But the professor was more than an academic interested in American politics — he was a longtime U.S. intelligence source. And, at some point in 2016, he began working as a secret informant for the FBI as it investigated Russia’s interference in the campaign, according to people familiar

U.S. law enforcement and intelligence officials have leaked extremely sensitive information about a top secret source three times in the last week while claiming that confidentially sharing information about the source with congressional investigators could greatly impact U.S. national security and potentially risk the source’s life. The officials have leaked specific information that could directly identify the source on three separate occasions to reporters at the Washington Post and New York Times. This raises even more questions about whether current top intelligence and law enforcement officials can be trusted to obey the law and to

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes appeared on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday, where he provided a potentially explosive hint at what’s driving his demand to see documents related to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Trump-Russia probe. “If the campaign was somehow set up,” he told the hosts, “I think that would be a problem.” Or an understatement. Mr. Nunes is still getting stiff-armed by the Justice Department over his subpoena, but this week his efforts did force the stunning admission that the FBI had indeed spied on the Trump campaign.

If you’re a fading Baby Boomer, you’re faintly amused that the FBI code-named its Trump-Russia investigation “Crossfire Hurricane.” It’s an homage to the Rolling Stones golden oldie “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” — which, come to think of it, might just be a perfect handle for John Brennan, the former Obama CIA director whose specter hovers over each critical juncture of the case. The young’uns may not believe it, but back before it was known as “classic rock,” you couldn’t just play your crossfire hurricane on Spotify. You had to spin it.

That source, a law-enforcement official, is speaking publicly for the first time, to The New Yorker, to explain the motivation: the official had grown alarmed after being unable to find two important reports on Cohen’s financial activity in

A recently engaged couple from Florida were kidnapped at gunpoint, robbed and severely beaten on a trip to Mexico when they were supposed to be looking at wedding venues. Frank and Jennifer Massabki said they were lucky to survive and are still reeling from the terrifying ordeal in Mexico City in May last year. Jennifer, who was almost raped by one of their attackers, suffered a broken nose in the ordeal and had to undergo emergency surgery in a US hospital days later. Horrifying photos show them sitting at a police station in their blood-soaked clothes soon after they managed to escape.

It took about five years or more for the Securities Exchange Commission to create a rule. They finally did so now we have a data set of about 225 public the traded companies.

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir.
