Associated Press, by Staff

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!!!

Nikki Haley, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, on Tuesday responded to Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s speech to the UN Security Council, saying he has a choice between achieving peace and “hateful rhetoric”. Haley also made clear that while the United States is holding out its hand for peace, it will not chase after the Palestinian Arabs. “I sit here today offering the outstretched hand of the United States to the Palestinian people in the cause of peace. We are fully prepared to look to a future of prosperity and co-existence,” she said. “The Palestinian leadership has a choice

BRUSSELS is gearing up for a bitter trade war with US and has pledged to fight fire with fire if Washington carries out its threat to introduce import barriers to steel and aluminium products from Europe. European Union trade officials have warned such a move would result in counter-tarrifs being slapped on exports from the US within days. They said iconic US products ranging from Harley-Davidson motorcycles to Jack Daniels whiskey would be targeted in any retaliatory strikes and that preparations for such a confrontation were in full swing. Analysts said the choice of products was significant as Harley-Davidson is based

WASHINGTON - A federal judge on Tuesday denied a request by AT&T Inc (T.N) to compel the U.S. Justice Department to disclose any records of communications between the White House and government lawyers that detail President Donald Trump’s views on the company’s proposed $85 billion merger with Time Warner Inc (TWX.N). The Justice Department on Friday moved to prevent AT&T from arguing that politics played a role in the government’s decision to stop the merger, which Trump has publicly criticized. Share prices for AT&T and Time Warner were steady on the news, both down slightly for the day. “We respect the judge’s

Mr Duncan Smith said the UK would look at EU regulation to see whether it should be changed post-Brexit.

A British couple kidnapped and held hostage by suspected terrorists while on holiday in South Africa have been dramatically rescued by counter-terrorism forces. The pair had been snatched while visiting KwaZulu-Natal in the north-east of the country and their family were not even aware they were in danger or indeed missing. Anti-terrorist officers who were monitoring two suspects discovered information linking them to a couple in Cape Town who had not returned as expected on February 15. Fearing their life was in danger, a specialist force was put together to storm the suspected terrorists´ home in Vryheid, a cattle ranching and mining town

Why real Americans don´t care

If I had a say in this, there’d be only two countries taking part in Winter Olympics 2018 – the United States versus Russia. We don’t need the rest. Like it was when we beat them in hockey, 1980. As you can see, there are too many countries around the world…too many, absolutely, around Pyeonchang, which is in South Korea. Was that really the best choice? Never mind. That’s another topic. But I must say this – my Uncle Marv did return (wounded) from the war there; but 33,652 other Americans did not. It’s called “The Forgotten War.” I’ll bet it is not forgotten

A week of open debate in the U.S. Senate failed to produce an immigration bill that a majority of lawmakers were willing to support, effectively bringing reform efforts to a standstill. But the White House says it´s not giving up on its fight for border wall funding and a list of other changes to legal and illegal immigration practices, including DACA, that the president has been demanding. ´We´re going to stay on it,´ Vice President Mike Pence said in an interview with Fox & Friends that aired on Monday morning.

An ancient oak tree marking the border between England and Wales has fallen down at the grand age of 1,000. The Buttington Oak was planted as a boundary marker and had stood proudly for centuries. It was planted along Offa´s Dyke - a line of earth that fo llows the border between England and Wales - named after Anglo Saxon king Offa. But images show the historic oak, with a girth of 36 feet, now lying on its side in a field near Welshpool in Powys.

After Netanyahu – then what? He survived the eight inglorious years of Obama – the most anti-Israel president since Jimmy Carter. For that alone, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu deserves a medal…even a cigar. Netanyahu went toe to toe against Obama, and from the fire emerged unscathed. Better yet, during all that time, while Obama schemed behind his back, Netanyahu kept Israel in one piece. Even better, he kept Israel at peace – relatively so considering that Israel faces enemies from within and from all sides. So… why the rejoicing when the leader’s pain hurts the entire nation? But there is no figuring Leftists. We don’t know

Chris Hughes, a co-founder of Facebook and chair of the Economic Security Project, has a proposal to attack the problem of rising income inequality through a basic income, a system of wealth distribution in which people receive a standard salary just for being alive. And he wants to pay for it by raising taxes on the one percent. (Snip) To pay for this, Hughes proposes bringing tax rates on the top 1% of earners in the country to 50% — which is in line with the historical average, he said.

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.

Liberals get control of the Supreme Court and ignore the Second Amendment; Washington makes gun ownership illegal; almost all the guns come pouring in or are destroyed; a few hapless Jim Bobs who won’t get in line get shot up by the cops and then the government is free to do anything it wants and if people don’t like it, well, what are they going to do about it without guns?

President Trump said Tuesday he has asked the Justice Department to regulate "bump stocks," the firearms accessory that can be used to make semi-automatic weapons fire at a rate similar to automatic weapons. Trump´s move came less than a week after the Florida school shooting that left 17 dead, and several weeks after a shooter in Las Vegas used bump stocks to killed dozens of people. "Just a few moments ago, I signed a memorandum directing the Attorney General to propose regulations to ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns," Trump said.
