    Fox News radio just covered this and then followed with a quote by Maryland Senator Ben Cardin that Dems will only negotiate after the shutdown ends. Riiiiiiight.

      That’s the only thing they know! They’ve gotten away with it for 30 years or more. They just don’t know how to do it any other way than to let the Rs cave, promise the world and then come back with “oops, you really didn’t believe we’d do what we said did you?”

        anniefannie gets it right. We are at this impasse because for over 30 years, Republicans cave (even Reagan gave the illegals amnesty for the PROMISE of a barrier). No barrier.
        The Democrats have no idea what to do if the Republicans don’t cave. My guess is they will cave (Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, Mitt Romney) but POTUS won’t. The media will blame the president, of course, but when they already report 92% negatively, what are they going to do? Ratchet it up to 100%? Who would notice? But much of it works. Those who get their news from MSM have no idea what’s going on in the country.

          Even if the Republican Senate were to cave, POTUS would have two unstoppable weapons to neutralize their disloyalty: 1) the Veto; and 2) his powers under the Emergencies Act of 1976 that give him all the money he needs to build substantial wall mileage. So, if Republicans did get weak-kneed, he just needs to remind them that they cannot stop him and will be showing their disloyalty to the Party. He is playing with the mother-f*ckers (to use Ms. Tlaib’s term) in both parties. He will get to build the Wall.

      I wonder how it is that Maryland seems to have such complete morons “representing” us. Cardin, Van Hollen and Cummins seem to vie to outdo themselves to make stupid pronouncements. Fortunately the rest of them are pretty much backbenchers that no one cares to hear.

      Except Andy Harris, the lone Republican and an actual voice of sanity. The other day on the radio someone asked about the fate of the poor government workers.

      He said they were free to find other employment and if they were too shortsighted to know that their jobs were subject to possible furlough during appropriation fights, that’s their problem.

        Andy Harris may have been insensitive in his remarks but he wasn’t wrong. It’s not like they didn’t see this coming. And they all know if their jobs are classified as nonessential.

        But most government employees continue to vote Democrat (that’s why Maryland is so corrupt and so Leftwing DemoncRAT) so those govt employees need to be pounding their chosen Representatives to stop the intransigence and approve the border security funding with the wall.

      This is why Graham is suggesting that Trump re-open the government, give the Dems a week or two to prove themselves to be liars, and then declare a national emergency.

      • GB Bari says:

        And as soon as PDJT declares the emergency, the Uniparty will pressure and expect him to sign a CR to open the government. As soon as he does, a lawsuit will be filed against the action somewhere in the Ninth Circuit jurisdiction and a Leftwing judge will issue an injunction halting the wall. It will then go to the appellate court (Ninth) which will uphold the injunction.

        It will then go to SCOTUS and we have no idea if by that time RBG will be alive or not. There’s only a slim chance the injunction is overturned by SCOTUS. I don’t trust John Roberts at all.

        That’s why PDJT is smartly delaying the border emergency declaration until the last option.

What I don’t understand about the media is how little pride in themselves they have. They seem fine with being merely propagandists for the Democrats. That’s shocking to me.

    Putting it on the Dems to “lead” and figure out a solution

    Asked about Graham’s suggestion to temp open gov. He says that was his suggestion but POTUS rejected that suggestion

    Hard to hear the questions but the next one seems to be about news over the weekend re Putin meeting.
    He replies about the meeting, topics covered and that he has meetings like that with many other world leaders one on one. He says news about it over the weekend is fake news.

    Asked about Russia, he was Very firm that this is a great big hoax, he never worked for Russia and to even ask that question is a disgrace

    re border he says how can the fencing/border barriers be immoral and they weren’t immoral over past years when dems supported?

    Says that good people at FBI have been unfairly tarnished by this.
    12 others have been caught and terminated and more will go.

    He says that the hoax is bad for our country. That he did a great service for our country when he fired Comey because he was a dirty cop.

    The policies that President Trump ran on and has implemented to date (de-regulation, tax reform, renegotiation of bad trade agreements) have driven the economy to historic highs, especially on jobs, unemployment, and, at long last, rising wages for US workers. This especially benefits our traditional minorities – African Americans and Native Americans, all of whose ancestors have been in this country since before the import of slaves was banned in 1808 – the only classes to whom we owe affirmative action. Part of the opposition to a secure border comes from those employers who don’t want to raise wages, who want a steady stream of illegal aliens to exploit. So if I were a member of those minorities, I’d ask why the Democratic leadership cares more for illegal aliens and those large employers who don’t like raising wages, than they do for our own traditional minorities.

    If you’ve been impressed with the rise in wages due to the Trump economy, just wait until we get a deal with China, true border security, and cut down dramatically on illegal immigrants.

    The Democrats like to frame the divide in our country as between rich Republicans and poor Democrats, while it’s really between rich globalists, and the American middle class. Trump wasn’t elected by rich globalists, who were all in from HRC. Trump was elected by America’s Middle Class.

        Cheers Piper,

        Ford is an interesting individual. Street smart, well connected and tough as nails. His bother was Mayor of Toronto and an effective one. Regrettably the brother had “ issues” that likely contributed to his early death.

        Ford may very well move on to great things. As Ontario as you will know is the epicentre of all things political.

        We have no impartial media up here. All outlets are Liberal or worse.

        The majority of Canadians in my generation are doing very well at the moment. This will likely continue for a while yet. As a result we have become smug, and complacent.

        IMO we have done this largely on the backs of the U.S. 80% of Canada lives within a short drive of the U.S. border, we buy gas, booze and smokes down South of the 49, and a family will save thousands by doing so.

        Many of us have U.S. bank accounts, and Credit Cards with U.S. institutions. Back around 2009 thousands of Canadians bought properties in your Sunbelt. Including Hawaii.

        We were able to do this because our banks are very Conservative. ( for any investors out there) our “ big five” banks are a good buy at the minute. What with the strong U.S. dollar and that banks have had a bit of a pull back of late.

        Sorry if I have gone on too long..

        Stay safe.

          Do be aware that part of why USA corruption is so pervasive is our complacency…its difficult to remain aware, particularly when the press is also so corrupt.

    The stupidity of the media and their Democrat allies is mind-boggling.

    The only winner in the game the media and other Democrats are perpetuating with this Russia hoax is Russia.

    If you don’t think Vladimir Puttin (and Xi) are sitting on ALL of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails, I have a bridge to sell you.

    They are sitting back and watching the Democrats attempt to destroy the ELECTED president of the United States. If the Democrats fail, they are innocent of trying to destroy the country’s election process; it was the Democrats did it.

    If the Democrats succeed, they get to deal with Pence who is a nice man but probably just another weak sister Globalist they can snocker as they snockered Obama, Bush II, Clinton and Bush I.

    If the media/Democrats “get” Pence, too, then they get Pelosi. Mein Gott! Can you imagine the windfall THAT would be for Russia, China, Iran. A dingbat who doesn’t know her fanny from her elbow and has trouble even remembering her name.

    If the media/Democrats wound POTUS so that he loses to ANY of their FINE ARRAY of candidates — Beto, Bernie, Castro, Kamela, Hiawatha, Cory — mental lightweights all, half of them Leftist dupes who like Russia and China a lot better than they like America anyway.

    And if it’s Hillary? HOOO HAH! Then there’s the Emails.

      It’s actually not a bad idea to do what Graham suggested. Nancy’s not budging, there aren’t many options. If Trump re-opens the government at least the workers will be getting paid again, and then he can give the Dems a week or two and then declare a national emergency. He can call their bluff. The workers getting paid is not as important as people dying from crimes and drugs, but it’s still important. I do hope Trump changes his mind on this, but I respect whatever decision he makes.

    December 2009 Rasmussen Reports: Tea Party Tops GOP on Three-Way Generic Ballot

    “Suppose the Tea Party organized itself as a political party. When thinking about the next election for Congress, would you vote for the Republican candidate from your district, the Democratic candidate from your district or the Tea Party candidate from your district?

    Democratic — 36%
    Tea Party — 23%
    Republican — 18%
    Not sure — 22% “

    Three different polls over the last few years show Americans no longer believe the crap the Yellow Stream Media tries to feed them… Unless they are already diehard liberals.

    Only 6% of Americans trust the media
    Apr, 2016 “[….]A survey of more than 2,000 adults released on Sunday showed that trust in the media has dipped to dramatically low levels. About 52 percent of respondents said they have “some confidence” in the press, while 41 percent said they have “hardly any confidence.”

    Over the last two decades, research shows the public has grown increasingly skeptical of the news industry,” the report from the American Press Institute reads. “The study reaffirms that consumers do value broad concepts of trust like fairness, balance, accuracy, and completeness. At least two-thirds of Americans cite each of these four general principles as very important to them.” […]”

    And more recently:
    60% of Americans believe MSM reports fake news
    “[…]The Monmouth University poll, published Wednesday, found that Republicans (79 percent) were most likely to say that major news outlets transmit fake news stories, compared to 66 percent of Independents and 43 percent of Democrats.
    The survey found that even more people distrust online news websites, with a whopping 80 percent believing such outlets report fake news regularly or occasionally…

    The three groups of respondents were more equally aligned on the topic of whether online news outlets report fake news deliberately, with Republicans and Independents tied at 57 percent. Democrats weren’t far behind, at 52 percent.[…]”

    Poll: Majority says mainstream media publishes fake news
    “[…]Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the mainstream press is full of fake news, a sentiment that is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum.

    According to data from the latest Harvard-Harris poll, which was provided exclusively to The Hill, 65 percent of voters believe there is a lot of fake news in the mainstream media.

    That number includes 80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats. Eighty-four percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online.[…]”

    And a January 2018 politico article.
    “[…]“The big takeaway is that Trump’s media marketing campaign is working, not just on his core, but on Republicans in general,” she said.

    Other key findings of the survey: Even as 84 percent say the media play a “critical” or “very important” role in our democracy, 43 percent of respondents had a very or somewhat unfavorable view of the press, with 33 percent favorable and 23 percent neutral. Just 15 percent of Republicans had a favorable view, with 68 percent unfavorable. Democrats replied 54 percent favorable, 18 percent unfavorable.

    Americans, Gill said, “see the media as a key and important part of our democracy but don’t see it as fulfilling that role.” […]” h t t ps://www.politico.com/story/2018/01/16/americans-fake-news-study-339184

    Followed by a 06/27/18 poll reported in the Hill:
    Poll: 72 percent say traditional outlets ‘report news they know to be fake, false, or purposely misleading’ – 😲 OUCH! 😆

    Why do you think Farcebook, Twatter and Uboob.tube are desparately trying to shut down conservative voices or putting pressure on Patreon to demonetize conservative publishers?

    They are LOSING!
