    I believe the next looming potential government shutdown is in September. Time for the president to dig in his heels. Full Wall funding or nothing gets signed. Nothing.

      Does any know why the tradition of talking off the month of August began??!!! DC buildings DID NOT have Air Conditioning! August was the hottest month in DC.

    Check out the vacancies in the Ninth Court of Appeals ( 8 out of 29 judges ) and the Ninth Court district courts ( 21 out of 112 judges ).

    If Trump fills all of them we have a chance, a possibility, to STOP Progressive LAWFARE in the West Coast.

      I served on Federal Jury duty in April (Florida Southern District). Our judge said there were 5 vacancies in the district. I looked it up…there are 15 positions. So 1/3 not filled. As a citizen, and a taxpayer, that is just NOT acceptable!

      It’s about time Mitch & the R’s in the Senate got off the dime and did the people’s work. And quite frankly, I don’t care if they go nuclear on everything. Get. It. Done!

        That will never happen. It’s like asking a skunk not to stink when it sprays.

        They are who they are, and they are corrupt.

        They’re criminals, literally.

        And whenever DJT gets around to taking down this global crime syndicate, I hope McConnell and Ryan are on the plane to Gitmo with all the others.

      Of course there is the possibility that he will
      pick Demoncraps… who are our enemies.
      If he does that it will be very telling about whose
      side he is on.
      At which time I will no longer support him.

      Apparently you didn’t read Sundance’s linked thread, Co-Dependent No More? It has nothing to do with McConnell helping President Trump.

        Sundance is particularly enjoyable on the threadreader – I think it’s a great format for him. That said, I would like to see his explanation for Elaine Chao. Have I missed it somewhere along the way?

          Somebody needs to unload on her but not sure if Sundance has even mentioned her other than in conjunction with the Turtle. But I don’t read as regularly as I use to so I could have missed it too.

            I do my best to keep up, but reading everything here (including links and comments) is now a full-time job! I’d enjoy it more than the one I have, though. 🙂 I’ve been awaiting the Chao explanation, as cannot figure it out.

              I skip a lot of the comments now as many are just speculating and I’m waiting for facts, which we will get from Sundance as he learns them.

      Like all of the other traitors in our government, McConnell has always liked winning — for himself. And the way he has done it, like all the others, is by selling out our country.

      He does like winning for himself, by selling out our country.

      And he has every intention to keep doing it, until we fry his traitor-ass in an electric chair.

    Everyone is speculating about this move so I will chime in.

    I believe that Mitch is following through on orders from President Trump. President Trump has for a while now talked about how the Senate should not get a break when there is so much to be done. President Trump, who knows the laws better than any President in recent history, he knows, and is willing to exercise his authority, to keep the Senate and Congress, or either in session.

    Mitch’s announcement is an early warning from President Trump that if you don’t get done what I want, you aren’t going to have any campaign time for November. No more games. Get done what I want or sit in DC for the next 5 months.

    By giving this warning through Mitch, it gives Mitch the appearance of authority and let’s the D-Rats know they have to let things pass or they can’t campaign; if they leave to campaign anyway, there is less obstruction. It’s a Win/Win for President Trump; he will either get what he needs or the D-Rats will not be able to campaign for November.

    So, I don’t believe Mitch is trying to pull a fast one, I believe he is the messenger for President Trump and the idea of NO RECESS puts the D-Rats in a bad place with the November elections coming up. People have trouble believing it but things HAVE changed thanks to President Trump. JMHO

      Exactly. Trump is the change agent we’ve been waiting for. All the old rules don’t apply to the POTUS who thinks it’s just self-serving hogwash. Thank God that Trump came along when he did. And thank God, politicians on both sides of the aisle are getting heartburn over so many broken traditions.

      In view of Sundance’s Co-Dependent No More (unrolled twitter thread), if President Trump can order them to stay in session for the next five months, he should let the hammer drop on every traitor in congress and demand/order them to stay. They do nothing but work against him. Time to take the yardstick to every one of them.


    • scott467 says:

      All of that presumes the McConnell isn’t a traitor working just as hard to hobble and then remove DJT from the presidency as the rest of the UniParty / NeverTrump traitor / Globalist / Deep State / Demonrat Treason-cabal.

      And I have no reason to think McConnell is NOT part of that Treason-cabal.

    I see it as a play to keep President Trump from making recess appointments of some of the less popular nominees.

      Nah, Trump can recall every single one of them which destroys the kabuki game of everyone goes home except for a chosen few to block any recess appointments.

      If Trump’s working, no excuse for all of them not to be here working for the people. Trump is letting Mitch assume responsibility for keeping the critters busy during the normal recess period. If Mitch chokes, Trump will give him a reason to doubly choke on the beautiful golden Trump leash.

        Prez Trump should reread the Constitution and re-discover the TRUE nature of a recess appointment, especially since McConnell will not allow the Senate to go into official recess, precisely to PREVENT the President from making any recess appointments. McConnell has done this since his inauguration.

        The recess appointment power was originally given to allow the President to

          I’m sure Trump is aware of his prerogatives as POTUS and will use it when it suits him. I’m convinced he has prepared a long long time for this role. Christian or not, his heart is in the right place and searching for truth, which leads ultimately to God’s truth. Trump knows that God annointed him and that He’s in control.


    • Summer says:

      Yep, that was the first bulb that lit up in muh Russian Bot central processing unit as well but I will give Mitch the benefit of the doubt. He’s been focused on confirmations for quite some time, even bragged how many judges they managed to confirm. Perhaps it’s both — he wants to earn some brownie points AND prevent President Trump from firing his buddy Jeff and appoint a real AG.

  9. Carolina Kat says:

    Wonder if the bit in Schumer’s mouth is beginning to grate. He asked for it… Now Tester and Heitcamp (sp?) and Manchin can hand their losses over to the obstruction policies of the leadership. Maybe that will undermine the lockstep Democrats strategy and force the vulnerable to yield to their own survival.

    About time The Turtle played a touch of hardball.

    Prediction: Schumer stops using all possible means to stall nominee processing. He knows that it’s a long shot for Dems to win back Senate, but if they can’t fundraise and campaign, there is no chance.


  16. Did you click on Sundance’s link titled “co-dependent no more?”

    McConnell is simply trying to prevent Trump from making recess appointments.

    Someone linked McConnell’s wife’s failure and treachery in her position. Seems like a good time to fire her.

      I carry an old battered copy of the Constitution in my bookbag and use several KJV bibles so I don’t wear them out.
      Recently I picked up a new copy, along with a few “fully informed jury” materials.

    Folks, I had a terrible thought… What if McConnell has kept this session open just so that the Senate coukd pass some odious DACA legislation behind our backs? THAT would be great gift to the Uniparty/COC/Donor Class. I am dismayed. And very ANGRY.
