Senate Stumbles into Shutdown
as Rand Paul Blocks Vote

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/9/2018 2:04:49 AM

WASHINGTON— The government stumbled into a midnight shutdown Thursday as a rogue Senate Republican blocked a speedy vote on a massive, bipartisan, budget-busting spending deal, protesting the return of trillion-dollar deficits on the watch of Republicans controlling Washington. A shutdown — technically a lapse in agency appropriations — became inevitable as GOP Sen. Rand Paul repeatedly held up votes on the budget plan, which is married to a six-week government-wide spending measure. The Senate recessed around 11 p.m. with plans to reconvene just after midnight.Paul was seeking a vote on reversing

At least someone has a sense of honor. If we ran our personal finances the way they run the national ones, we´d be in prison.

This 700 page document was delivered at midnight Wednesday night and scheduled to go to a vote Thursday night to prevent a shutdown.

Question: How many Senators and Congressmen read this thing. A speed reader at 1200 words a minute would have spent 6 hours plus wading through this document. The average reader at 300 words a minute....! Well, you get the picture.

As interest rates are poised to rise, we are looking at a situation where the INTEREST on the debt we all owe, will be overwhelming and unsustainable.

Hemingway was once asked how he found himself to be bankrupt. He replied,´It happened slowly.....then suddenly!´

I fear for the future of my children and grandchildren when that happens! And it appears it will!

I think we need to rebuild our military or we´re going to see the first Nuke come to us! That takes Billions. We can take the money the Democrats would use to support those MILLIONS of Dreamers and their families and give it to the Military. If Dreamers want to stay here, they should NOT be a burden on our country. If they are on welfare, it should be cut off NOW. Then move to the millions of Americans who are on welfare who are able bodied and cut them off. You see where I´m going with this. We have the money to fund our military IF we quit using it foolishly. Quit sending BILLIONS to foreign countries that hate us. Quit using our military to defend foreign countries who should have formed their own military 50 years ago! Why haven´t any of our members of Congress brought this up? It´s common sense! Not much of that in Washington these days!

Washington Free Beacon, by David Rutz    Original Article

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) said Wednesday that he did not know at the time that Russian trolls promoted his 2016 presidential campaign and wondered why Hillary Clinton´s team did not do more to tell voters about the extent of Russia´s election interference. In addition to their well-known efforts to boost Donald Trump, Russian trolls supported Sanders´ presidential primary campaign, when he mounted a surprisingly strong but ultimately unsuccessful challenge to Clinton, according to special counsel Robert Mueller´s indictment from last week. Mueller´s team indicted 13 Russian nationals and three companies for interfering in U.S. elections from 2014 to 2016.

CNN Faces Growing Criticism Over Use
of ‘Traumatized’ Children to Push Anti-
Gun Agenda
Breitbart Big Journalism, by John Nolte    Original Article

The far-left cable channel CNN is facing a growing storm of criticism over its frequent use of minor children (14 to 17) to further its anti-gun agenda. Already a number of the children, those who witnessed last week’s shooting massacre at a high school in Parkland, Florida, have made countless appearances on the anti-Trump cable network. In furtherance of its anti-gun propaganda push, CNN’s anti-Trump pundit, Jake Tapper, will host a town hall Wednesday night featuring these children.Many, however, see CNN’s use of these minors as an act of partisan exploitation that is not only immoral, but also not good for

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney did not vote for Donald J. Trump in 2016. Representative Martha McSally of Arizona may not have, either, but she will not say. And Senator Dean Heller of Nevada now insists that he did cast his ballot for Mr. Trump, but for many months, he would not reveal his vote.Senator Bob Corker supported Mr. Trump, but seemed to regret it last year when he concluded that the country had deposited an unruly toddler in the Oval Office.Yet as each of these Republicans pursues a Senate run this year — or in the case of Mr. Corker,

Commentary: Why do we hate the NRA?

Why do we hate the NRA? Yesterday the hashtag #KillTheNRA started trending on Twitter, inspired by a vandalized billboard in Kentucky bearing the same message. It echoed comments from student survivors of the Parkland High school shooting on CNN over the weekend. When asked for their message to the National Rifle Association their response was "Disband. Dismantle. Don´t you come back here." "The fact that [the NRA] was in power for so long just goes to show how much time we need to spend fixing our country," Parkland student Emily Gonzalez said.

Guns and school shootings: The
dirty and deadly big secret
American Thinker, by Christopher Natale    Original Article

In the aftermath of yet another horrific mass murder of innocents, we are, as always, besieged by calls for stricter gun control laws, from the daily media buffet of rallies and protests to politicians spewing what now has become a familiar script. But is the redundant, knee-jerk reaction calling for gun control a viable solution or just another political football being tossed into our daily cultural scrum? People had guns in the 1950s (and in the ´60s, ´70s, and ´80s), and the gun laws were more lenient than today, so why wasn´t there an epidemic of school shootings back then?

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:

I hope that over the course of the campaign I also earn the support and endorsement of the people of Utah,” Romney tweeted late Monday evening.

Just one day after the shooting massacre last week at a Florida high school, the woman who cared for the alleged shooter and his brother filed court papers seeking control of their inheritance, which could total up to $800,000, according to the New York Post. Roxanne Deschamps also had Zachary Cruz, the brother of shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz, involuntarily committed to a mental facility shortly after the massacre, the Post reported, citing a family source. Deschamps, a longtime family friend of the Cruz brothers, began looking after them after their adoptive mother, Lynda, died of pneumonia in November.
