WASHINGTON — The Latest on Congress and spending legislation (all times local): 5:30 a.m. The House has narrowly passed a sweeping bipartisan budget accord, ending an hours-long government shutdown and clearing a path for huge spending increases for both the Pentagon and domestic programs. The 240-186 vote sends the $400 billion spending plan to President Donald Trump, who has promised to sign it. Passage of the measure came over the opposition of Democratic leaders who demanded the promise of a vote to protect “Dreamer” immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. A band of tea party Republicans swung against the legislation as

Will someone please make the argument that the government does not deserve one cent until they can responsibly account for the billions that go missing? We need accountability in the form of meaningful audits of every department. We cannot just pour billions into an arrogant behemoth that clearly cannot be responsible. These bureaucrats must be held accountable to the American people. The waste, fraud and neglect to protect the hard earned dollars they are given is an abomination. Every aspect of spending should be looked at with the intention of making sure that the money is used wisely. I am inscensed that these thieves are allowed to increase spending when they have proven they are not responsible with the funds they have already been given in the past. Should we be rewarding such fiscal irresponsibility? I think not.

Remember if you will, the heady days of 2010-11 when the PEOPLE said "ENOUGH" and the Tea Party movement was formed to repudiate the wild spending and socialism of Nobama.

The RINOcrats are leading us to oblivion.

People worship Mr. Trump as all powerful and all-knowing just like the left did with Nobama.

The MASSIVE repudiation of Nobama came because of the TWO massive infusions of spending and the over reach of BIG Government.

Where are we just a few short year down our mortal coil???


Have we lost our minds, or have the politicians been allowed to make "deals" that sell U.S. out?

EVERYONE KNOWS this debt will NEVER be paid, hoping somehow that the economy will save us yet again, but the old grey mare is about to croak over burdened by its workload because of the ever increasing LOAD it is supposed to carry.

It is unconscionable that we continue to push the can down the road to oblivion in the destruction of our nation to our great grandchilen YET UNBORN.

WE must CUT spending and reign in further government growth where possible or the "last, great hope" will not survive.

Its time to bring back the tea party movement and let the media and the out of touch politicians of BOTH parties BE DAMNED.

Why do they call it a budget? It is nothing like a budget. It´s more like living paycheck to paycheck. What they are doing is exactly what many impoverished people do. Beer and cigarettes are more important than food and shelter. In other words, it isn´t the necessities that are important, but the superfluous.

Nutsy Nancy Pelosi swore she would shut this down since it didn´t guarantee the "dreamers" would get instant citizenship. She babbled on for over 8 hours to make that point.

More than anything, this shows just how little power and influence this nutcase woman has any more.

Sadly, the MSM won´t bring this up. They will trash Rand Paul, but Nutsy Nancy if off limits!!!

More than two-thirds of Americans credit President Donald Trump for the country’s healthy economy, a new poll has revealed. The CBS News poll which was released on Sunday shows a sharp partisan divide, with Republicans more likely to give the president positive reviews while Democrats and Independents are not as complimentary. According to the survey, 35 per cent of Americans say Trump’s policies are ‘a great deal’ responsible for the economy. Around the same number - 33 per cent - say the president’s policies are ‘somewhat’ responsible. Nearly one-third say that Trump is either ‘not very’ or ‘not at all’ responsible for the strong

President Donald Trump demanded to know Sunday when special counsel Robert Mueller was going to ´STOP!´ probing into alleged Russian influence on the presidential election and turn his investigative power onto Hillary Clinton. In a long, bitter Twitter rant the president railed against the cost of the investigation, calling it a ´$20,000,000 Witch Hunt´ that has found ´no Collussion with Russia, No Obstruction, but they aren´t looking at the corruption in the Hillary Clinton Campaign.´ Trump´s words of rage echoed the remarks of his private attorney Rudy Giuliani, who also said the investigation was a waste of $20 million during an interview

Israel’s sucker’s game

Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Caroline B. Glick    Original Article

There was a depressing familiarity both to Hamas’s suicide protest operation along Gaza’s border with Israel this week and to Israel’s response to it. Hamas’s jihadist regime in Gaza doesn’t have a lot of cards to play in its continuous war against the Jewish state. But, as we have been seeing since Hamas launched its campaign against the border six weeks ago, it does have one card, and no matter how often it plays that card, Israel can’t seem to figure out how to beat it. Hamas’s card is Western hostility to Israel. The Western media, along with the EU and most

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

Julian Assange´s guest list in the seven weeks leading up to the release of hacked Democratic party emails by WikiLeaks has been revealed, and includes RT reporters, German hacker Andy Müller-Maguhn and documentary maker Michael Moore. In total 80 people visited Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in the summer of 2016, which was around the time when Assange announced he was going to release emails from Hilary Clinton´s US presidential campaign. Others included Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek and prominent WikiLeaks supporters like British designer Vivienne Westwood and left-wing journalist John Pilger, according to visitor logs obtained by the Guardian and Focus Ecuador.

Hawaii´s Kilauea volcano is violently spewing lava up to 200 feet in the air and firing out lava bombs the size of refrigerators in apocalyptic scenes with six of 22 fissures active on Friday. The latest in more than two weeks of eruptions has sent fresher, hotter lava speeding towards an isolated residential area, and officials are using helicopters to see if there is anyone still there that needs assistance, Hawaii News Now reported.

WASHINGTON — A West Wing aide´s morbid remark about gravely ill Sen. John McCain has not yielded widespread White House soul searching. Instead it has produced a push to fire those responsible for leaking that story and others that have bedeviled President Donald Trump´s administration. Nearly a week after Kelly Sadler dismissed McCain´s opinion on Trump´s CIA nominee during a closed-door meeting by saying "he´s dying anyway," a torrent of criticism has rained down upon the White House. The administration has repeatedly declined to publicly apologize, but the fallout has shaken the West Wing, where the focus remains on who leaked

Pope Francis has reportedly told a gay man that "God made you that way and loves you as you are," apparently pushing the pontiff´s acceptance of homosexuality to a new level. Francis made the comments to Juan Carlos Cruz, a Chilean victim of priestly sexual abuse who recently spent days with the pope at the Vatican to discuss his ordeal as the pontiff moves to tackle decades of coverups and ostracism of victims in the Chilean church, according to the Spanish newspaper El Pais. Cruz was quoted as having discussed his homosexuality with Francis. "He told me: ´Juan Carlos, I

Former Secretary of State John Kerry warned President Donald Trump Sunday that Democrats are not afraid to go against his “America First” policies. “We won’t win, any of us, ultimately, by retreating within our borders, by focusing on our own nations only, or by going it alone,” Kerry told those gathered at New York University’s Abu Dhabi’s commencement ceremony Sunday — a direct reference to the president’s “America First” trade and immigration policies. Kerry served as the secretary of state for former President Barack Obama. He also, notably, was one of the key negotiators for the administration when it was

At the end of all the scandal and drama, all of the breathlessly reported lies and false accusations, at the end of all the money wasted on some zany kabuki swamp dance choreographed to the thrumming of giant bullfrogs and yipping of excited coyotes — at the end of all of this — it comes down to precisely what we said it was a year and a half ago.

We’ve won the argument – 90 percent of Americans think that we should have universal background checks. Today, 67 percent of Americans, two-thirds of Americans think that should regulate the purchase and sale of assault weapons,” Murphy said at the Center for American Progress Ideas Conference on Tuesday.
