Trump pressuring GOP to withhold
federal funds for Gateway tunnel project

New York Post, by Laura Italiano

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 3/3/2018 11:54:46 AM

President Trump wants no federal funding for a long-delayed new rail tunnel joining New Jersey and Manhattan — and is urging congressional Republicans to snub the project in the upcoming omnibus spending bill, according to a report. Trump was so intent on excluding the project that he broached the topic with House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday at a Capitol Rotunda ceremony for the late Rev. Billy Graham, The Washington Post reported. Ryan seemed surprised that Trump was bringing up the $30 billion Gateway project at the time, a person familiar with the conversation told the paper.

Comments:
President Trump is 100% correct. It´s immoral to expect residents of the lesser 48 to fund a project to be enjoyed almost exclusively by people commuting back and forth between New York and New Jersey. Fund it locally or don´t do it at all (see also the Big Dig and other federal boondoggles that have all but broken the bank).

Does the ’budget wonk’ Ryan’s Wisconsin district include NY or NJ? Why was he surprised? Does he think the Federal tax code was created to do this?

First, this is NOT one of those matters that falls within the Constitutionaly enumerated duties and powers of the Federal government. And never has been.

Related to that, why are the taxpayers in Texas, Ohio, Georgia, Arizona, Indiana, etc. expected to pay for something that will never benefit them and that they will never use? How is this different from armed robbery except by a transparent veil?? Let the oh-so-superior taxpayers of New Jersey and New York Sewer cough up the wherewithal.

What a difference it makes to have a businessman at the helm. Not that it should be a businessman. It could be anyone other than a politician. I do not believe the founding fathers saw governing to be a profession.

I am impressed with our new C-I-C. And look at all the situations during his so far short reign and how Obama or Hillary would have handled them. We are most fortunate that the voters did it right.

Commuting is only a problem because too many people live and work in New York. Some of them need to move to Kansas.

The Donald noticed that neither US Senator from New York favors the Wall on the national border.


He´s raised the cost of their opposition.


I think the deal is he gets half the $30 billion and they get $1.9 billion, take it or leave it.


We saw something similar with the DACA debacle, and we´ll see it with a number of other deals where the Democrats and RINOs have refused to go along with the people!

Mountain View, Calif. — At a divisive time for U.S. immigration policies, a California school board has decided to name a new elementary school after an award-winning journalist who disclosed in 2011 that he had been living in the U.S. illegally. The Mountain View Whisman School District board voted Thursday to name the as-yet-unopened school after Jose Antonio Vargas, bypassing Steve Jobs and other technology giants with ties to the San Francisco Bay Area’s high-tech Silicon Valley. “We wanted to pick someone who embodied the values of what you can do with an education, as Jose does

Italy’s interior minister has sparked a new migration crisis in the Mediterranean by barring two rescue boats from bringing refugees to shore, a week after the Aquarius was prevented from docking. “Two other ships with the flag of Netherlands, Lifeline and Seefuchs, have arrived off the coast of Libya, waiting for their load of human beings abandoned by the smugglers,” Matteo Salvini, the leader of the anti-immigrant party the League, wrote on his Facebook page. “These gentlemen know that Italy no longer wants to be complicit in the business of illegal immigration, and therefore will have to look for other ports

Google is struggling to retain their black and Hispanic employees, an annual diversity report reveals. The fifth annual diversity report also shows ´dismal´ improvement in hiring minorities and women. For the first time, Google´s report provided data on attrition, or how many people left the company, with rates for black and Latinx employees being the highest in 2017. ´A clear low light, obviously, in the data is the attrition for black and Latinx men and women in the U.S.,´ Google´s chief diversity and inclusion officer Danielle Brown told TechCrunch. ´That´s an area where we´re going to be laser-focused,´ she added.

Milwaukee — A Wisconsin woman accused of trying to plan terrorist attacks on social media leads a lonely life and sought companionship online, but she never posed a real threat, her attorney told a judge Friday. But federal magistrate Judge Nancy Joseph said the allegations against 45-year-old Waheba Issa Dais were concerning enough that she must be held without bond pending her trial. Prosecutors allege the mother of seven tried to recruit people to carry out attacks for the Islamic State, and provided them with information on how to make explosives and poisons.

Barcelona, Spain — Spain´s maritime rescue service says it has saved 933 people and recovered four bodies from dozens of migrant boats attempting the perilous crossing of the Mediterranean Sea over the past two days. The service said Saturday that it pulled the migrants from a total of 68 different smuggling boats that its rescue craft intercepted throughout Friday and Saturday morning after they departed from African shores. The spike in arrivals comes as Spain prepares to receive another 630 migrants after Italy and Malta refused to let the aid boat Aquarius land in their ports last Saturday. The Aquarius and two

Janique Walker knows the cost of a split second. Her younger brother, 17-year-old Charles Macklin, was killed while trying to steal a Jeep from a Chicago fire lieutenant on the West Side last August. The lieutenant had left the Jeep running, and Macklin jumped behind the wheel. The lieutenant ran in front of the Jeep and shouted, “Get out,” according to a police report. When Macklin began pulling away, the lieutenant drew his gun and fired through the open driver’s side window, hitting the teen in the chest.

The state of Illinois has approved $224 million to pay for street and transportation projects in Chicago´s South Side neighborhood around the Obama Presidential Center site, $199 million of which will fall directly on the shoulders of Illinois taxpayers. Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law the legislature´s budget on June 4, which included $174 million for road work in and around Jackson Park — where the 235-foot-tall building would be located — and another $50 million to renovate an above-ground rail stop two miles away. “Bringing the Obama Presidential Center to Chicago took leadership and vision, and we are gratified that our

You wonder why Fox News is Number One in cable? It´s because CNN, MSNBC, NBC and the rest are so relentlessly negative about Donald Trump they force people to watch Fox to find out the truth about the growing economy or the historically low unemployment rates for blacks. Take this week´s Singapore Summit. No matter what President Trump accomplished in Singapore in his face-to-face meeting with North Korea´s Kim Jong Un, for Joe, Mika and their fellow foreign policy experts in the media, it was not enough. Or it was too much. Or Trump was naive or stupid. Or he gave away too much. Or he didn't ask "Little Rocket Man"

Christian leaders across the country have taken issue with Attorney General Jeff Session´s usage of the Bible as justification of his policy that is separating thousand of immigrant families at the border. Sessions cited Romans 13 to attempt to justify how separating families was ordained by God because ´orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.´ For religious leaders who still weren´t pleased with his usage of scripture, he offered them to ´speak up strongly to urge anyone who would come here to apply lawfully, to wait their turn and not violate the law.´

The president of Harvard´s teaching hospital got to thinking one day and decided there were too many portraits of white male doctors hung in a popular amphitheater. She bemoaned the horrible situation that people walking into the amphitheater didn´t feel like they "belonged." The problem cried out for a solution. So she moved several portraits of prominent white doctors in order to be more diverse and inclusive. Problem solved?
