Trump Under Major Pressure To Make Agreement Or Gov’t Will SHUTDOWN 2 Weeks

Published

on

It’s that time again… time to not panic over a government shutdown. Some on the right are calling for Trump to work with the Democrats to keep it from happening. But honestly, why should he? They have obstructed him every step of the way, especially on the wall and illegal immigration. Maybe a shutdown would do Congress and the country some good. It sure wouldn’t hurt.

We do need a balanced budget, but with the Democrats controlling the House, it is unlikely to materialize. If Trump compromises for it, they will load it up with corrupt pork and it will be worse than if he’d done nothing at all. Spending definitely needs to be cut all over the place except the military. The Dems will want the military cut and nothing else. What’s a president to do?

Sarah Palin has more on this conundrum:

President Trump will have to ignore the results of the most recent congressional elections and get back to work with his current congressional body as a partial government shutdown is potentially two weeks away.

Congress has made a habit of kicking the can down the road and rather than passing a balanced budget for the entire year, scoring short-term agreements.

Their process is two-fold: Facing a deadline like a government shut down, some people within Congress dig in their heels and refuse to cave on issues, some are more conciliatory when faced with potentially being blamed for the shutdown; also, Congress as a whole struggles to balance the yearly budget without making major cuts to their spending—something which would reflect poorly with constituents—so they make incremental cuts throughout the year.

So, it’s that time again.

This time, however, it seems both Republicans and Democrats are unmovable is their interests just ahead of the new year.  Republicans are looking to get one last big win before they lose their majority in the House of Representatives. Democrats are looking to implement a different strategy: should they make it look like Republicans will not be able to get the big win they are looking for (by resisting the bill in the Senate), Republicans may look to compromise and score any win over no win.

The gridlock continues.

But, the wild card in this mix: President Trump.

He could tip the power struggle in one way or the other. Should he show a willingness to work with the Democrat Party in the next Congress, maybe they will meet his halfway on their demands, Politico reports.

Here’s more:

President Donald Trump is pressuring Republicans to obtain at least $5 billion for his border wall, far more than what Senate Democrats are prepared to give. Democrats, in turn, are considering pushes for legislation to protect special counsel Robert Mueller and the elimination of a citizenship question from the next census, according to people familiar with the negotiations.

And:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has made clear he’s in no mood to swallow a major concession on wall money that would boost the president, publicly urging Trump to stay out of the negotiations.

But Trump is unbowed. He’s refused to rule out a shutdown and has told GOP leaders that he wants no less than $5 billion for the wall, according to sources familiar with internal talks. That’s more modest than Trump’s earlier demands, which went as high as $25 billion.

And some Republicans are still eager to help him get there. Last week, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) introduced a bill providing $25 billion for the wall while proposing to pay for it by cutting benefits for undocumented immigrants and levying fines on people who cross the border illegally.

“Here is the thing: Walls work. We know they work,” Inhofe said in introducing his bill.

Republicans are considering $25 billion to fully cover the border wall funding, Democrats have drawn their line at $1.6 billion. Trump is asking for $5 billion. Who will blink first?

From the report:

House Republicans, meanwhile, are eager to deliver Trump more wall money while they are in the majority and meet the president’s demand of $5 billion in their spending bill. A senior House Republican aide said the House is still working toward that number in year-end spending talks, and Senate Republicans say they are right there with them.

“He’s very committed to that. We are too,” said Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), the incoming majority whip. “I’m hoping we’re able to get closer to what he’s trying to do in terms of funding the wall.”

If both sides remain at odds, congressional leaders will have to begin weighing fallback plans. Already some Republicans think they may need a weeklong stop-gap bill to give more time for spending talks, according to one senior aide close to the talks. Government funding currently runs out on Dec. 7.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

* By

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

...

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
