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!!!

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.

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. Eagle-eyed Rob McBride, who has the nickname ´Tree Hunter,´ spotted the grounded oak. Rob,

President Donald Trump and and House Speaker Paul Ryan were seen watching over a wedding at the Mar-a-Lago on Sunday. Trump was seen pointing during the wedding that featured a giant archway with white feathers and red accents. Women in simple yet elegant gold dresses stood underneath the archway in anticipation for the bride. The two were meeting Sunday afternoon to discuss Trump´s legislative agenda and potentially talk about immigration. Ryan and Trump have been working more closely with each other, as of late. The House Speaker rallied behind the Trump-Nunes position, justifying it on civil liberties ground. It has been a busy weekend for

After Cigar-gate: Careful
what you wish for
Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Jack Engelhard    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 2/18/2018 7:11:59     Post Reply
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

President Donald Trump slammed the ´fake news media´ for not reporting Facebook ads vice president´s claims that the 13 Russians indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller Friday weren´t trying to sway the 2016 election. In a barrage of angry tweets on Saturday afternoon, Trump used Rob Goldman´s words that the goal of the Russian influence operation was to sow fear and hatred in the United States, dividing citizens. Goldman claims that the Russians weren´t actually trying to sway the election, and that was just a consequence of their attempt to polarize American views.

AN earthquake has hit the UK with thousands of people reporting tremors across England from as far as Cornwall to Liverpool. Its epicentre fell about eight miles northeast of Swansea city centre, according to the US Geological Survey, sparking an evacuation at Swansea University.

It is the fifth biggest earthquake ever recorded in the UK and the biggest to rock Britain in ten years. EMSC estimated around

The epicenter was close to the Pacific coast in the southern state of Oaxaca and had a depth of 26.7 miles (43 km), according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The area is already reeling from an earthquake that caused widespread damage in September. Oaxaca’s civil protection service said no damage had been reported so far.

The White House will not release a photo of President Trump signing a resolution that let thousands of mentally ill people gain access to guns. Trump signed the resolution in February, rolling back a regulation put in place in the final weeks of the Obama administration placing new restrictions on gun ownership by people with mental illness. He quietly signed it at a time when the White House was making a show of other legislation and even executive orders that Trump signed, such as the president´s travel ban that got hung up in the courts.

Two newly minted gun control activists from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are defending the FBI, while demanding that NRA "child murderers" dismantle and disband. And they have declined an invitation to discuss their concerns with President Donald Trump, whom they call "disgusting."

Pyeongchang - The moment, when it happened, felt routine to American slopestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, who along with figure skater Adam Rippon is the only openly gay male Winter Olympian to ever compete for the United States. Matthew Wilkas, Kenworthy’s boyfriend, gave Kenworthy a good-luck kiss before a qualifying run on Sunday in South Korea. “That was like a peck,” Wilkas, who wore a “USGay” t-shirt to the event, tells TIME afterwards from the bottom of the slopestyle course at the Phoenix Snow Park. “We should have made out in front of people.” Kenworthy didn’t know the TV cameras caught

Now that the gun control advocates have had their fifteen minutes of fame, let’s start focusing on the real issues impacting the rise in school shootings since that infamous day in Columbine in 1999. Issue number one that no one in the mainstream media or government wants to acknowledge: fatherlessness. Specifically, the impact of fatherlessness on the boys who grew up to become school shooters. Dr. Warren Farrell, author of the new book The Boy Crisis, explains: Minimal or no father involvement, whether due to divorce, death, or imprisonment, is common to Adam Lanza, Elliott Rodgers, Dylan Roof and Stephen Paddock.

WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joe Biden is tiptoeing toward a potential presidential run in 2020, even broaching the possibility during a recent gathering of longtime foreign policy aides. (Snip) A presidential candidate twice before, Biden would be 78 on Inauguration Day if elected in 2020, a concerning prospect for some Democrats even though he´s only a few years older than Trump. One possibility that Biden´s longtime advisers have discussed privately is that he could announce his intention to serve only one term, clearing the path for his running mate to take over in 2024 and potentially setting up Democrats
