“You’ve been in the Oval Office before, right? C’mon. We’ll go into the Oval Office and take a picture…” And in they went, clustered behind him as he signed, and had their picture taken with him and the signed bill. Pens all around. Those will be treasured…

Yes, #1 and 2. Lots of conservatives were watching LIVE as I was also in a Chat room at same time. I doubt those steel workers give a hoot what the bitter #Never Trumpers say. They can’t wait to vote for Jeb! Jr. for POTUS, I guess.

Thank You God for our strong President!

#3 Get some facts!
Trump has filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy for his companies six times. Three of the casino bankruptcies came during the recession of the early 1990s and the Gulf War, both of which contributed to hard times in Atlantic City, New Jersey´s gambling facilities. He also entered a Manhattan hotel and two casino holding companies into bankruptcy.

Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows companies to restructure or wipe away much of their debt to other companies, creditors, and shareholders while remaining in business but under the supervision of a bankruptcy court. Chapter 11 is often called "reorganization" because it allows the business to emerge from the process more efficient and on good terms with its creditors.

One point of clarification: Trump has never filed personal bankruptcy, only corporate bankruptcy related to his casinos in Atlantic City. “I have never gone bankrupt,” Trump has said.

From another article:

While there is not currently a timetable, the exemptions for Canada and Mexico "are not open-ended" and will depend on whether changes are made to NAFTA that satisfy Trump, the administration official added. The proclamations also can be amended in other ways "to preserve our national security."

"I have a feeling we´re going to make a deal on NAFTA," Trump said.

What we have here folks, is a triple-play:

Protect the steel and aluminum workers´ jobs

Maintain industries vital to the nation´s defense

Provide a bargaining chip for not only NAFTA, but TPP as well.

Take a drink every time you hear the words "protectionism" and "Trade War" on tonight´s LSM newscasts. You´ll be drunk in an hour.

Good on ya´ Mr President. The naysayers don´t know what they´re talking about, probably disgruntled "expert" economists. You know what they say about economists? You want three or more incongruous opinions, talk to two economists.

WASHINGTON — Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, the battle-tested Army officer tapped as President Trump’s national security adviser last year to stabilize a turbulent foreign policy operation, will resign and be replaced by John R. Bolton, a hard-line former United States ambassador to the United Nations, White House officials said Thursday. General McMaster will retire from the military, the officials said. He has been discussing his departure with President Trump for several weeks, they said, but decided to speed up his departure, in part because questions about his status were casting a shadow over his conversations with foreign officials.

As the Senate barrels toward the third government funding deadline of the year, Republicans appear in the dark about one key question: What will Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) do? The libertarian-minded senator caused an hours-long shutdown in February. He´s yet to say if he´ll give a repeat performance going into the midnight Friday deadline to avoid a partial closure. "Shame, shame. A pox on both Houses — and parties. $1.3 trillion. Busts budget caps. 2200 pages, with just hours to try to read it," he tweeted on Thursday.

The House approved the $1.3 trillion budget to fund the government through the 2018 fiscal year, allowing federal services to stay open but hampers many of President Donald Trump’s agenda items. The lower chamber approved the budget 256 – 167, but oddly enough, most of the dissenting votes came from Republicans, who hold the majority, and not Democrats. Ninety Republican members of the House voted against the bill, compared to 77 dissenting Democrat votes. In total, 145 Republicans and 111 Democrats voted in favor of a bill.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi trumpeted her party’s successes in the negotiations over the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill in a statement released late Wednesday. While Democrats had not managed to secure a solution for the so-called “Dreamers” — a major demand of the progressive activist base of the party — she boasted that she had funded many Democratic spending priorities. Crucially, she said, Democrats had prevented Trump from building his wall, restricting new spending on border security to secondary fencing. Pelosi’s full statement follows: “Democrats fought with great integrity, strength and unity to secure vital middle class priorities in

Speaker Paul Ryan is set to pass the second largest spending bill in US history next to Barack Obama’s trillion dollar failed stimulus.The budget funds all of the Democrat priorities including sanctuary cities and Planned Parenthood.The bill will also funnel billions of dollars to Obamacare markets. Paul Ryan’s omnibus only allows $1.57 billion on “physical barriers and technology” on the border. $641 million of that could go to barriers, and that would be restricted to see-through fences and levees. However, according to PBS, the funding could not be used to build a concrete wall. In January President Trump asked for

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said at a press conference on Wednesday that the Freedom Caucus will vote against the omnibus spending bill and he hopes the White House will veto the bill. Congressional leadership reportedly will reveal the omnibus spending bill on Wednesday. Conservatives, including the majority of the House Freedom Caucus, will oppose the Omnibus. Congress must pass the omnibus spending bill or a short-term continuing resolution (CR) by Friday to avoid a government shutdown. Jordan suggested that a number of liberal policies will be included in the omnibus, without any substantial border wall funding. Jordan said, “Planned Parenthood,

Science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the best-known names in a genre known for looking forward. However, not all writers in the genre look to the future for their ideas -- plenty are obsessed with moving backwards, from liberty back to tyranny. Robinson recently penned an op-ed in The Guardian that favors removing humans from most of the world, forcefully herding us all into cities. "The tendency of people to move to cities, either out of desire or perceived necessity, creates a great opportunity. If we managed urbanisation properly, we could nearly remove ourselves from a considerable percentage of

A McLaughlin & Associates/Media Research Center survey released Wednesday found that 44 percent were less likely to watch sports and entertainment shows “because they have become too political.” In addition, 75 percent said they watch sports and entertainment to escape from politics, and “do not want to be bombarded with partisan political messages.” The poll of 1,000 likely voters comes with television ratings plummeting in the last year for high-profile sports and entertainment

White House officials said Thursday that President Donald Trump will sign a hotly contested budget bill when lawmakers send it to him, despite the fact that it provides for only 33 miles of new barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump vowed in April 2017 that his long-promised border wall would be finished by the end of his first term in office. ´It´s certainly going to – yeah,´ he told reporters then, answering a specific question about a four-year timeline and adding that ´we have plenty of time.´ But at the rate the White House has agreed to, the project could stretch through more
