  1. SeekerOfTruth says:

    Conservatives in Congress have already caved on funding the wall in any CR budget vote.
    As I mentioned before any CR will not include wall funding.

    Now Meadows says this.
    The head of the hardline conservative House Freedom Caucus says many of his group want to avert a government shutdown this fall, even if there is no money in a short-term funding bill for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall.

    In an interview on ABC News’ Powerhouse Politics podcast, Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., took a sharply different view than Trump on the shutdown issue.

    “In talking to a number of my members, if there was a vote for a continuing resolution next week that did not include border wall funding, the majority of those members would be supportive of that,” Meadows told hosts Jonathan Karl and Rick Klein.

    Meadows asserted he prefers a solution where government funding will continue through the rest of 2017, with any possible shutdown showdown over the border wall between the United States and Mexico not coming until December or January — citing the need to government open to deal with the devastation from Hurricane Harvey.

    “I don’t know that anybody’s advocating for a government shutdown,” Meadows added. “Obviously I’m very aware of the priorities that the president’s put forth in terms of the border security and the wall, and I certainly support that.”

    ==> But, he said, “next week . . . we are encouraging our leadership to go ahead and put a bill on the House floor and let us vote for that.” (NO WALL MONEY)

    “Most of the conservatives that I talked to are willing to . . . vote for a continuing resolution that just basically would not have wall funding in it – would continue the current stream of money that keeps the government operational while we work through and negotiate on the appropriations bill,” he said.

    Bottom line:
    They had 5 months to work through the budget appropriations bills. AND THEY HAVE NOT EVEN STARTED. Too scared to talk about wall funding.

    Conservatives caving to Dems again and again and again. Meadows. When will you use regular order for the budget bill? NEVER!!! When will a CR have wall funding? NEVER! unless you are willing to shut the gov down to call the Dems bluff.

    His Excuse.
    We need a CR to get the Harvey funding and gov going.
    1) But any Harvey funding above the special fund will be a separate budget bull. That bill is a necessity.
    2) And any gov services dealing with Harvey can be declared essential and would operate in a gov shutdown of non-essential services.

    His excuse is totally not valid. Weak and faking us out. He totally caved in. Weak.

    Are you willing to shut the gov down in Dec-Jan for the next budget talks? No That is what it will take to get wall funding if the Republicans are not all lined up in Senate.

    Another CR with no wall funding. Trump veto.

          Everyone should look into the research ,people in frames of videos gone are the next frame.
          The Brennan Gilmore tape shows the car was on the block of Water And 4 th street .for about 20 seconds, the Ford Fischer live feed shows it was about 1: 45

          The witness stating he drove down there and came out right away are lying .
          All of the six or seven people he supposedly plowed into and knocked them off their feet all but one have walked away within 15 seconds and one is gone whennthe video returnsv 32 seconds
          The man doing the Headstand gets up and leaves with 3 seconds, the guy to the left doing a headstand has left within 15 seconds.
          The blond haired girl who supposedly was hit hard enough by the car to knock her off over the top of the car was sitting and talking with no cpr or anything minutes later in the Fsith Goldy Live Feed

            The part about the license plates really makes it a point of contention now for me. I won’t let it go. Bringing God into this stagecraft is doing Satan’s work. There were 2 license plates used by the stagers, this one shown and another that was similar to G111111 or something. They had a large woman standing by the driver’s window also block the view to the driver in one of the cars.

            Someone died in the altercation, but it wasn’t a Heather Hyer, it was two state troopers later in a helicopter who were doing recognizance of the riot. They no doubt saw everything. There was murder by the DNC in Charlottesville.

            Just caught something in that pick. Click on the full size pick and enlarge it to 200 pct. The back stop sign is floating in mid air. There is not sign post it is attached to. FAKE!

              Omigosh, ur right!
              They put a stop sign to make it look like the car went through the stop sign.

              Look closely to at the middle of the pic. It’s a bad photoshop or CGI to see tons of feet, legs, arms and a torso in orange shirt smack in the middle where the top of the Dodge car is supposed to me. You mean to tell me that the orange shirt person is literally stuck half way into the top of the car? There’s no top of the car?! It’s almost too funny now.


        • Wow, that looks like a really awesome PAC. I’m just so skeptical that it’s just an other controlled opposition Group. Until I see POTUS or Sundance approve, I think I’ll wait. Sorry, but I’ve been hurt too many times.

      I heard the Louisiana AG on FBN today talking eloquently about PDJT and his administration and how much they have done.

      One example he gave was that EPA Sec. Pruitt signed some kind of waiver. I don’t really understand this, but there are something like 15 different blends of gasoline and regions have different blends that are required in their area or something. (Side Note: How asinine is that????)

      Anyway, Pruitt has waived this EPA requirement. That will eliminate bottlenecks the requirement creates in distributing refined gas, which would result in for example Florida seeing much less gasoline available to their market and thus the price would be sky high.

      It was interesting to hear him talk. He had more examples. He was really sincere about how innovative and proactive the Trump Administration had been. It was also refreshing to hear praise for PDJT.

      I like the way this guy thinks. Fun, short read.

      He describes a different approach. Basically, set aside at least for now our dreams about electing better people in 2018. Instead, focus on what is right in front of us–the coming legislative session.

      He says it doesn’t matter if Satan himself is your Congresscritter, if they are not supporting the President’s agenda PRESSURE LIKE CRAZY. Hit them over and over again. They must support our President.

        If anything, starting now with pressuring them would be a great training exercise with regards to future elections for those unaccustomed to calling their rep’s offices and talking to staff.

        There’s some art to being effective with them — always be polite, tell them very specifically what you want the rep to do (or not do), cite no more than three quick facts as to why, don’t rant/rave but stay focused, firm and positive but relatively brief. Ask for a follow-up letter and/or note on their website news. Would also ask if there are any upcoming phone or in-person townhalls so you can bring your neighbors who are interested (implies you are well-connected in the community) and that you are seriously going to pursue the subject.

        I really caught my former rep’s attention when I pointed out his NumbersUSA grade on immigration went from A+ to B+ when he was addressing a regional group of Tea Party leaders. He looked rather stunned and asked why. Told him they scored him lower because he failed to challenge leadership on immigration issues. So they do pay some attention to such organizations and how they are rated. If it applies, use those grading systems to influence — wonder if there is a MAGA one now? Wow, that would be awesome!

    Just had an opportunity to listen to the wonderful speech our President gave in MO today. It really bothers me that our President goes out of his way to thank the Republican politicians in the room. For them it is priceless! Yet these same POS will be the first ones to condemn him publicly. Our President actually enjoys for them to be recognized.

    I love ❤️ that he went after the Democrat up for reelection in 2018! Claire McCaskill was put on notice. The crowd erupted when our President said if she doesn’t support the Tax Reform Bill she needs to be voted out of office. I hope someone shares that with her. MO is going to be an easy seat to flip. We need the right Republican to get it done. Our President acknowledged some in the room today that have been with him from day one.

    Folks I have said over and over that if Tax Reform and Infrastructure occur before the summer of 2018 (Tax Reform first followed by Infrastructure), the Economic Train 🚂 will go from what I believe will be continued 3% to 4% GDP (which our President has done SINGLE HANDILY on his own by releasing the Energy Monster that has been dormant for decades) to 5% and 6% GDP. All the ingredients are right in front of us.

    I also believe that the Republicans in Washington realize that our President will get ALL the credit for where our economy is currently at. There is absolutely nothing they have done that has caused it to go from 1.2% in the first quarter to 3% in the second quarter to a projected 4% in quarters three and four. How can they look their constituents in the face and say I had something to do with that growth.

    The ONLY way they can jump on the Economic Train 🚂 is by passing the Tax Reform Bill by the end of 2017 and the Infrastructure Bill by the summer 2018. Our President like any great leader will allow them to bask in the glory of those achievements. He could care less because for him, it means WE are Winning.

    With saying all of that, I honestly can’t see them not getting those two items done! In order to stay in the game, you have to produce. They see what is happening to there colleagues that are resisting our President. Luther Strange from ALABAMA is about to pay with his short lived political career. I actually feel bad for him. He voted consistently with our President’s agenda. However, he made a deal with the Devil by supporting Mitch McConnell’s stance of needing 60 votes to pass legislation in the Senate. His day of reckoning is Tuesday, September 26th. This will be the mother of all MOABS because our President backed him and he still lost because Mitch and Karl Rove where anchors that wouldn’t allow him to resurface.

    Jeff Flake was down 25 points in the last poll to Kelli Ward! He is DEAD 💀 and he knows it. Bob Corker was told via twitter by our President that the folks from TN are not happy with him. He still hasn’t announced if he is running next year. I believe he won’t because he is DEAD 💀 in our President’s eyes. Dean Heller is already behind Danny Tarkanian in NV. That is without our President throwing his support to Danny. Lucifer is stricken with the worst brain cancer possible. He will soon no longer be a torn in the side of our President and our country.

    The rest of the RATS in the Senate that will run in 2020 and 2022 will be literally shaking in their boots seeing the carnage that occurs when you go against our President and our country! There is no middle ground in MAGA. Either your in or your political career is DEAD 💀! That prospect is why I am confident.

    Very disappointed in Ann Coulter. Again. She should just become a permanent Breitbart writer and join that chorus of critics who pretend they are the “true conservatives”, when the truth is they are hucksters pining for relevance and cash who will never hold any meaningful political power.

    Noticed the information from Mark Meadows as regards the wall. I mentioned in the open thread several days ago that I felt that wall funding may end up having to wait. Meadows apparently feels the same way, although possibly for different reasons (hurricane relief needed so can’t have shutdown) and with a different timeline (end 2017?) than what I felt and what I was resigned to on the matter.

    I’m not surprised CNN supposedly cut off Trump’s speech today. It was too good, and it killed the entire “no empathy” narrative they were trying to run after Trump’s initial trip to Texas.
