reckless spending bill will hurt America'

One day after the Senate approved a temporary lift to the U.S. debt ceiling, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell wrote in a letter to President Joe Biden that he would not aid Democrats again in raising the debt limit.Following weeks of partisan fighting, the Senate approved the short-term fix that will allow the United States to avoid defaulting on its bills in a 50-48 vote on Thursday evening. The House will vote on the measure on Tuesday.Congress will need to find a longer-term solution in December. But McConnell has said the reprieve would give Democrats enough time to raise the debt ceiling through a procedural move known as reconciliation,

Mitch "MultiUseless" McConnell enjoys being rolled again by Chuck "Slime" Schumer. Mitch probably picked up the dinner tab while Chuck went to the bathroom and then headed straight for the exit. Mitch had the a bunch of RINO's supporting him. He enjoys being Minority "Leader".

McConnell warns every time for the Republican base, then when the deadline comes, he raises the debt ceiling again. I have no idea how many times McConnell has done this, but it is a lot.

So what China Bltch is saying is that he would have raised it again in December but for Schumer's tantrum? McConnell is a lying bag of scum that enjoys grabbing his ankles for Schumer over and over again. If you think this BS wasn't staged from the beginning, take note of the vote count. Sack of Sht McConnell released exactly 11 fellow stooges from his party (one more than needed) to vote yes to the extension. We are being rick-rolled by this putz over and over again. He and Chucky are playing everyone. The whole thing - the tantrum, the overblown reaction by Manchin, and the response by McConnell - is all theater for the masses.

#4, You are correct. They actually believe the American people are falling for this farce. We are not. I’d like to believe we have the ability through our right as voters to remove them from office, but I seriously doubt it. There is no appetite for truth in this country anymore. Look no further than the Arizona audit to understand that no one wants to touch voter fraud with a ten foot pole. It is better to not know than to have to deal with the truth. That scares Republicans to death and is the very thing democrats bank on. We are being lead by cowards and morally bankrupt fools who are aiding abetting each other in this theater of the absurd.

And in December McConnell will do what he did this week, and indeed has done for years with his debt ceiling charade. And the "debt ceiling" will be his excuse for not addressing Biden's gutting of immigration enforcement and the military and a whole range of other real issues with the Biden Administration.

This item has been a game of chess from the start. Maybe, by supporting the temporary rise in the debt limit, McConnell has taken away Schumer's last talking point in reference to future Republican refusal to participate in the maniacal Democrat spending spree. I see it as a tactical maneuver to discredit the slimy majority leader maybe. Maybe Manchin will now see that there is no longer a place for him in the Democratic Party, as I did some years ago. And don't forget that McConnell successfully prevented the demented DOJ chief from being a Justice of the Supreme Court, which would have been a disaster we would have to live with for a generation

This was actually a very good move by McConnell. It exposed Schumer for the mean and petty pol that he is just in case you were a bit braindead and missed it. It takes away any excuse the democrats had about not having enough time to pass a budget. It also exposed the weakest of the Republicans and made them look like chumps for making the deal. All in all the American people got to see the real faces behind the masks so to speak, and I wonder if maybe it has made Manchin and Sinema realize that they would be better off on the other side of the fence. Time will tell but I say win win for Mitch. The turtle will win the race after all.

As McConnell’s cowardice grows day by day, there always comes a point at which he sheds his old shell for a larger one to hide under. The new one he just gained he calls “December.” When he sheds that in December the new one will be “February” and so on.

Sorry for the second post. #17, I hope you’re right. However, if the past is prelude this movie is a clunker: Mitch is a coward who always disappoints in the end, after the show-stopping cliff-hanger scene. We know the formula because we’ve seen it so many times before. Mitch didn’t need to reveal Schumer or the rest of the RINO’s. Everyone knew what they were already. The fix is in and avaricious elitists always win.

We the people may not be falling for it but we are still doing nothing but whine about it. We waited so long to act that we now no longer have the military or the police on our side. We do out number the gangs of BLM and Antifa and yet we sat on the sidelines and let them take over. We should have hit the streets and out protested them but instead went to work or stayed home and let them take over. We have the numbers. We have the guns. We do not have the resolve. Whining isn't pretty, but it is easy. Have a blessed day.

It amazes me that there are still some posters that actually continue to get rolled by McConnell and believe this garbage. This is all theater for those that desperately still want to believe that the Republicans led by the Murder Turtle are any different than the Democraps led by Schumer. The whole thing with McConnell being outraged by Schumer's comments IS AN ACT. These two have been putting on this show for years - yet some continue to think that Schumer is just being mean to poor old Post Turtle. Again, for those of you in Rio Linda - IT IS AN ACT. You are being duped.

First everyone thank Mitch for keeping Gestapo Garland off SCOTUS. 2nd you need to look at the long game. The further Mitch can push dem to 2022 the better. Chucky is mad because this is only a short term delay & the pressure on Manchin & Sinema is lessen. Chucky knows that if this dem civil war delays Biden bill into 2022 the pressure on swing state dems will only increase to bail on the sinking Biden regime. The crazies want everything now & that is a pin pulled on the grenade that Chucky knows will blow dem up as long as Manchin & Sinema(who really must be PO at her treatment) hold. So lets wait to see how this plays out.

Political Theater 101. If spending isn't cut then the debt limit must and will be raised again in December. McConnell knows that and so does Schumer. #4 sounds about right. Here's an idea. Why not sell all the 2025 federal tax receipts now. At a discount of course. But it still should raise enough money to get the nation through 2021.

It is now apparent that Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin are the only honorable Democrats left in the Democrat party in Washington, D.C. Biden, Schumer, Sanders and Pelosi have spent the eight months of the Biden administration denying Republicans any input into the orgy of fiscally destructive and irresponsible spending bills. The bill to raise the debt ceiling by $3.5 trillion is so It is so irresponsible that Democrats have not been able to intimidate a majority of there own party to vote for it. They ran out the clock with their failure to negotiate a compromise which would have forced a government default and shutdown. The Republicans agreed to a a small debt ceiling raise to prevent a government default and shutdown and give the Democrats extra time to get their act together. This was a gracious act on the part of Republicans. This problem was e The response, by Schumer, was a deplorable 'tantrum' speech attacking the Republicans for not rubber-stamping the Democrat's fiscally destructive bill. Schumer has no shame!

Remember this is not about me being robbed of an election. This is about the American people having their country taken away from them,” Trump reportedly said.

California will soon ban the sale of new gas-powered leaf blowers and lawn mowers after Governor Gavin Newsom signed off on the new law on Saturday. The move is aimed at curbing emissions from a category of small engines on pace to produce more pollution each year than passenger vehicles. The gas-powered equipment to be banned uses small off-road engines, a broad category that includes generators, lawn equipment, pressure washers, chainsaws, weed trimmers and even golf carts. Under the new law these machines must be zero-emissions, meaning they'll have to be battery-powered or plug-in.(Snip)'This is a pretty modest approach to trying
Joe Biden must stand up to China after
latest threats to Taiwan

China is sending record numbers of military aircraft to threaten Taiwan, warning “war may be triggered at any time” and asking the island democracy’s allies if they want to “become cannon fodder.”Team Biden’s response: Happy talk of how China’s president-for-life promised a month ago to keep the peace and having the Pentagon shift from Trump-era “great power competition” to “strategic competition” that “does not, and should not, preclude working with China.”Ouch. Talk of “peace in our time” is exactly the wrong answer to China’s “We’re ready to rumble” message. Washington needs to act, and now, to get Beijing to back down.
New Polling on Biden Must Completely Terrify Dems 35 replies

We’ve been talking about how bad the polling has been for Joe Biden, even in deep-blue states like Minnesota. How do you know when it’s getting really bad? When even CNN — usually all in to pimp for Biden — is acknowledging how underwater he is in job approval. He’s down even with Democrats, but what they say is really animating the poll is how much he has dropped with independents. As CNN’s John Berman and Harry Enten put it, the technical term is “not good.” He’s down 10 points among Democrats, 12 among Republicans, but among independents, he’s down 19 points.

President Biden issued a proclamation this week to mark Indigenous Peoples’ Day — the first time a US president had commemorated the holiday. “On Indigenous Peoples’ Day, our Nation celebrates the invaluable contributions and resilience of Indigenous peoples, recognizes their inherent sovereignty, and commits to honoring the Federal Government’s trust and treaty obligations to Tribal Nations,” Biden wrote in the proclamation made Friday. “Today, we recognize Indigenous peoples’ resilience and strength as well as the immeasurable positive impact that they have made on every aspect of American society.”

We have finally gotten a glimpse of the new YouTube series starring Kamala Harris, and it’s just as cringeworthy as you could imagine. In fact, it might be the most cringeworthy thing she’s ever done (and that’s saying a lot).Harris is famously disingenuous , and this video does nothing to help that reputation. In the clip below, you see Kamala awkwardly using some sort of “Narrators voice” as she’s talking to the kids about space exploration.“I just love the idea of exploring the unknown,” Harris says in an awkward tone of voice. “And then, there’s other things that we just haven’t figured out or discovered yet.

British Airways has instructed pilots and cabin crew not to refer to passengers as 'ladies and gentlemen' in an effort to celebrate 'diversity and inclusion'. Britain's flagship carrier has abandoned the greeting in favour of more gender-neutral terms, reportedly to respect wider social norms and make children feel included. Other major airlines, including Lufthansa, easyJet and Air Canada, have already adopted gender-neutral language.

President Joe Biden wasted no time in making fighting so-called climate change a priority, including issuing an executive order on January 27, 2020, tasking several federal agencies with developing plans to address the issue. And now those agencies have released a report citing the most pressing threats facing the United States. The order said: It is the policy of my administration that climate considerations shall be an essential element of United States foreign policy and national security. The United States will work with other countries and partners, both bilaterally and multilaterally, to put the world on a sustainable climate pathway.

The former head of the FDA said Sunday that it is “certainly reasonable” to expect to start seeing children ages 5 to 11 fully vaccinated around Thanksgiving. In an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Dr. Scott Gottlieb—who now serves on vaccine-maker Pfizer’s board of directors—was asked whether it is possible that kids in the age group could receive both COVID-19 shots by around the end of the month if the Food and Drug Administration approves the company’s vaccine for them. “I think that’s certainly reasonable in terms of when this would be available,” Gottlieb said. Gottlieb pointed out that the FDA’s advisory committee
Soaring Energy Prices Raise Concerns About
U.S. Inflation, Economy

The U.S. economy is facing a new threat: rising energy prices. Crude oil has risen 64% this year to a seven-year high. Natural-gas prices have roughly doubled over the past six months to a seven-year high. Heating oil has risen 68% this year. Prices at the pump are up nearly a dollar over the past 12 months to a national average just over $3 a gallon. Coal prices are at records. Higher energy prices could push up inflation in coming months, damp consumer spending on other products and services, and ultimately slow the U.S. recovery, economists say. “For consumers it’s

Hundreds of thousands of U.S. service members remain unvaccinated or only partially vaccinated against the coronavirus as the Pentagon's first compliance deadlines near, with lopsided rates across the individual services and a spike in deaths among military reservists illustrating how political division over the shots has seeped into a nonpartisan force with unambiguous orders. Overall, the military's vaccination rate has climbed since August, when Defense Department leaders, acting on a directive from President Joe Biden, informed the nation's 2.1 million troops that immunization would become mandatory, exemptions would be rare and those who refuse would be punished. Yet troops' response has been scattershot, according to data assessed by The Washington Post.
