Original Article

Democrats on Thursday are panicking over the impending debt default and shutdown of the federal government with no backup plan in sight. “I don’t know what the plan B is… Plan B is to have Republicans step up and be responsible,” Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) told the Hill, blaming Republicans for government disfunction while Democrats control Congress and the Executive branch. “So then what’s the plan?” Sen. Jon Tester (D-MO) told the publication. “We’ve got to pay our bills,” he added. “This is asinine… People need to remove their heads from their lower extremities.” As of next Friday, federal agencies must discontinue all non-essential discretionary functions, which leave Democrats panicking

The plan is to stop you from pissing away another 3.5T dollars. It has NOTHING to do with paying bills, and you all know it.

What EXACTLY would have to be shut down? "Non-essential Discretionary spending"..Welp, there ya go. Nothing of any importance if it's 'nonessential', and you already have the "discretion' to spend or not spend on it anyway. Frankly nothing "Non-Essential" should be having any money spent on it anyway, I know it doesn't happen around MY "house". his is like the spoiled kid away at college who fritters away Dad's largess on frivolities then demands Dad put more money into their debit acct or I may flunk out, "Yo kid, your grades already SUCK, and likely because you are focused on things OTHER than what you are there to do in first place, maybe you need a semester or two WORKING in the Private sector so that you can learn how the REAL world works"

What purpose does the debt ceiling serve if it is always increased or suspended when Congress comes close to reaching it? Those in Congress must leave the ceiling unchanged and do the hard work of prioritizing spending such that only the highest priority gets funded. That is their job but they refuse to address the unaffordable spending that they create.

There is no debt limit. Tax, tax, tax. Spend, spend, spend. Elect, elect, elect. Dems will always spend. No limits. It is someone else's money, after all, If they had to spend the money, forget it. But when they can spend out of someone else's pocket, SPEND. And don't forget 10% for the big guy.

If they can identify the "non-essential discretionary spending", why don't they just get rid of it?!?!?!?!? I know if I were suddenly very deep in debt, we wouldn't have cable, eat out 2 or 3 times a week, go on nice vacations, buy a new boat, or any other "non-essential discretionary spending" until we were no longer in debt. Why can't the government do that?!?!?!?!?

How about starting with asking every department to submit a plan to save 1% of their budget by employing improved efficiencies, and with travel not as necessary, they should be able to slash that travel budget to easily make up that amount if not more. And, if the budget is 4.5 trillion, you'd have 45 billion savings alone. Just think they still want 1.2 trillion and another 3.5 trillion just for their new spending, not the normal budget which runs annual deficits each year.

Democrats remind me of people who need to pay their bills so they call their credit card companies and get their credit limits raised. When those cards are maxed out, they get new credit cards and go buy more stuff until those cards are maxed out. They just keep spending and spending. Before they know it, they have so many credit cards, they can barely make the minimum payments, only pay the interest, and are puzzled as to how they got in this position. Then, they get their income tax return. Instead of paying off debt, they go on an expensive vacation (using their credit of course) thinking they will pay it off, but spend all of the money on the trip, new I-phones, TVs, $300 Air Jordans, and all kinds of other stuff that they "need" because they deserve it. THe cycle goes on and on and on. They never get out of debt. They never learn, they just spend.

Step 1, stop digging. I suggest we start by eliminating the Department of Education and Department of Labor, and cutting back by at least 50% the FBI, NSA, EPA, and DOD. And then we'll cut more later.

Let’s see. The Democrats control the House and with Kackling Kamala have the Senate. So what’s stopping you cowardly rats from raising the debt ceiling? They just want to hide behind the “bipartisan petticoat” … and I have no doubt that severe pressure is being applied to the usual Rinos.

A draft copy of the 2020 Maricopa County election audit has been leaked to KJZZ, a Phoenix-based radio station. The validity of the draft report they obtained was confirmed by audit spokesman Randy Pullen, who said, “It’s not the final report, but it’s close.” The media is already spinning the findings of the audit. “The partisan review of Maricopa County’s 2.1 million ballots cast in the 2020 election found a vote count nearly identical to what the county had previously reported,” CNN reported. Like other liberal outlets, CNN focused on the results of the hand-recount part of the audit. As we know, hand recounts may account for slight discrepancies

Biden got confronted in his presser this morning over the border crisis, with one reporter pressing him to explain how his promises of humane treatment square with the images seen from Del Rio. Biden seized on the misinformation about alleged whippings by the Border Patrol’s mounted units, promising “consequences” for the agents in question: Our pal Guy Benson notes the contrast between Biden’s assessment of American law enforcement and the “business”-minded people currently reinstating amputations in Afghanistan:

Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and ultimately, Gainesville city employees, scored a victory this week after a judge granted a temporary injunction against the city’s vaccine mandate. Until Wednesday, Gainseville city employees risked termination if they refused to get vaccinated for the Chinese coronavirus — a rule the city commissioners voted for in August 4-3. “People who are going to hospitals, the vast vast majority of them haven’t been vaccinated,” commissioner Adrian Hayes-Santos said at the time. “I believe we move towards mandating vaccines for our employees so that we can ensure all of our people are healthy, they have a safe workplace, and also for the public,”

Why has the federal government been trying so hard to keep surveillance footage of January 6th under wraps? We may have an answer to that question if a set of newly released videos are any indication.A judge ordered the videos be released against the wishes of the government prosecutors who claimed doing so would undermine national security. Of course, that makes no sense, and what’s on the videos runs counter to the chosen narrative.Behold, the event that has been compared to the Civil War by the President of the United States.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is warning the Republican Party that staying in former President Donald Trump’s thrall will not lead to a viable political future. The Lexington Herald-Leader obtained a preview of Peril, the upcoming book from Bob Woodward and Robert Costa that has already produced a multitude of explosive details on Trump’s last days in office. According to the new excerpt, McConnell is encouraging the GOP to move away from Trumpism, calling the ex-president “a fading brand. Retired. OTTB as they say in Kentucky — off-the-track Thoroughbred.” “There is a clear trend moving,” McConnell said. “Sucking up to Donald Trump is not a strategy that works.”

Naturally, those who live to see Israel wiped off the face of the Earth didn’t take it well as scenes of lunacy were presented on the floor.
