    When the Democrats won the House of Representatives I knew it would be just a matter of time before they shot themselves in the foot. I actually gave them more credit than they deserve. Pelosi likes to expedite matters.

      I wonder if that is why POTUS delayed one hour? To give Nancy time to dispute before he made his pitch.

          There were some security concerns because the DC Women’s Watch decided to take the march over to the White House, which might have been the reason for the delay. But again, I wouldn’t be surprised if he delayed to see if Nasty would post her rejection before his proposal.

        A repeat from the last article: Look at the timeline folks!

        12/11/2018 — President Trump Invites Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to Discuss Border Security in FRONT OF THE MEDIA

        12/19/2018 — As Expected, UniParty Moves: McConnell, Schumer and Pelosi Construct Short-Term Budget Continuing Resolution with NO WALL FUNDING. President Trump VETOES.


        1/8/2019 — President Trump Oval Office Address on Border Security followed by Democrat Rebuttal by Pelosi and Schumer in FRONT OF THE MEDIA


        1/16/2019 — Nancy the Pig says NO SOTU for POTUS. Politico’s article is hysterically funny.

        1/17/2019 — Even The Washington Compost prints an article that Nancy the Pig is LYING about security being the reason and that it is a POWER MOVE just as the Politico article stated.

        1/17/2019 — President Trump’s counter move is much more reasonable. 7 politicians + 93 OTHERS are toss off a military plane so they do not waste Tax payer money during a shutdown.


        1/18/2019 — President Trump announces a 3:00pm Address to the nation… in FRONT OF THE MEDIA

        1/19/2019 — At the last minute** President Trump honors returning military killed in Syria and therefore POSTPONES address until 4:00pm. This means Nancy the Pig’s pre-written “HELL NO!!! is RELEASED FIRST because she is on vacation… again.

        At the last minute**
        Remember what former Secret Service agent, Dan Bongino has told us. THESE plans are made WELL IN ADVANCE so Secret Service can have all the plans necessary for the President’s security made and OK’ed.

        WELL PLAYED VSG-PDJT! The focus has now been shifted from impeach to border security. 🤣

      Michael, shooting themselves in the foot via Nancy girl and not stopping her because they are cowards and afraid of losing some position! And the newbies fighting the oldies is also giving me more laughs as each one and each day they are killing off their voters and make the DNC lying dead sooner than later. She meant NEVER to put forward the people who was hired to represent and shows a lack of common sense and absolutely no integrity. Didn’t know what Trump was going to discuss or offer but was ready before hand to shuck him off. Well, 2 days more and many of those laid off are out of a job. Some of that is great but there are also some employees that deserve better treatment because they actually work! She and her party have no shame and yet expect their communism to win over our country? Dream on, Pelosi and lay off the booze. Another vacation? Gee, as an employee why is she constantly on vacations instead of working for her constituents?

      • Agreed, but, one problem, the media…Is the media even sharing this. I repeat, many in this nation still watch CNN/MSNBC or even the local news. I have written my local news station several times asking them not to propagandize like the other Media’s, but to no avail. Apparently, since the small stations get their budget from their affiliates they must tow the line of the affiliates, and I have been told by the news tellers that the NWO/Globalist control:edit what they are to say.
        I hate to say it but, many need assistance in reading between the lines-turning of the sound and seeing the REAL optics.
        I have to admit that when I went to several Trump rallies, I was shocked at his support by those that did NOT know nor watch FOX or OANN. They also had no idea of the Mueller investigation or the coup, but, they loved Trump and how he spoke at the rallies. So I guess there IS hope after all.

        Pelosi at least is honest in her undermining of President Trump. She is, after all, in the opposite political party. Paul Ryan on the other hand did the same as Pelosi only under the table using passive-aggressive techniques and he supposedly is in the same party. If Paul Ryan is less of a Democrat than Nancy Pelosi, then I’m the next queen of England.

How’s that for giving her constituents a massive middle finger? Luria didn’t shoot herself in the foot, she shot her constituents in the head. Not that there was anything in the head(s) of those who voted for her to damage.

        This is the first time the politicians have actually had a real fight on their hands. Even worse, the brains, like David Rockefeller and Maurice Strong are dead, or they are old and demented.

        The Democrats were planing on having this year be ALL ABOUT ‘PEACH 45! and instead President Trump has switch the conversation to the border crisis and the shutdown.

        Too bad we do not have an honest and honorable media.

    Read this article to understand the complexity of the shut down. It’s not the 800,000 furloughed workers that are a problem it’s the myriad of Federal regulations that they administer. The President has an opportunity through Executive Orders to cut down the bureaucratic state. Meet with Republican governors and business leader and look for alternative mechanism to operate essential programs, The country was built on volunteerism and need to be restored.

    Decentralization Is The Solution To The Government Shutdown Problem

    Authored by Ryan McMaken via The Mises Institute,
    ”The partial shutdown with the federal government has helped, perhaps more than any other recent political event, to illustrate some of the biggest problems that come with centralizing an ever-larger number of government activities within a single, centralized institution.”

    • thedoc00 says:

      I agree and that option is still available. the dirty, untold truth about shut downs is that fees and taxes are still collected, which cover the services of the furloughed workers. For some reason, the money cannot be dispersed?? Make the decentralization decisions and use the collected funds to get it all started.

          Franklin, this is reasonable thinking and necessary. However, there are many federal employees that are truly extraneous and truly not needed. There are others that are reasonably essential and glad to see they are finding money for staffing needed. This is real thinking and action which we don’t see much of in this Congress which need to be closed/drained down NOW. Trump has gone out of his way to move things forward, but being obstinate democrats they are showing how they are not only fool but hate their own voters! We close the Congress absolutely now as it is useless, and start a new format of Congress with no gathering in DC any more.

    Clearly today we must all be aware that political expediency for the Chamber of Crony Businesses and Serf Labor and la raza ethnicity, and democrat sheeple voters, takes precedence over rule of law and constitutional procedure. However you say WTF ! what does this mean in relation to the tabulation whereby we must once again realize that the great reconquesta story is now being rehearsed before our very eyes, in the rise of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi indicating that only the two-faced … I mean the bi-faced … can receive the award for reconquesta, unlike Marco Rubio whose reconquesta plans that drank too much water.

    The time will come when a first world America will outlive its usefulness. Marx, either Groucho or Karl, I cant remember which, maybe it was both or maybe it was Harpo, once said that America is the opiate of the people. I say that when America outlives its usefulness and becomes a majority Mexican and Central American and Muslim nation , then opium will be the opiate. Ahh that’s not a bad idea we are going to need that very badly especially when the booze runs out

    And the completely unbiased and bi-partisan panel, has determined to give the grand prize to Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for their non-fiction movie BAT SHIITE CRAZY. Now BAT SHIITE CRAZY is a token of this pair’s genius. They told me so themselves and repeatedly that they could change perceptions by just looking in the mirror and calling everyone and everything they hated what they saw in the mirror. In other words, they could have been more specific, but rather than allude to an articulation of the mundane, they have come to the conclusion that brevity is the importance of our nation’s first world status and sanity.

      Karl Marx said, “Religion is the opium of the masses.” Russell Baker disagreed and said, “In America, it is sport that is the opiate of the masses.”

    And while this never ending kabuki theater continues between he said and she said illegal immigration is up 600%. It looks like both parties are stalling for time to let a couple million more in and at the same time keep the hundreds of thosands of DACA criminal men.
    Trump is reverting to the policies of Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and yes, Barack Obama. All supported fencing along the border, and all supported increased funding for the region.

    The DACA “children” most who are now in their 40’s are virulently anti-White, tend to easily assimilate in the multicultural sewer that is modern America, and have been given literally every advantage by the Globalists who run this circus of a country. Many are being promoted over whites into key positions throughout our institutions. There CAN BE NO COMPROMISE aside from whether they get deported by plane or by ground transport.

    Clinton was actually about as hardcore as Trump ever was. The offered deal would also extend protections for 300,000 recipients of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program — which protects immigrants from designated countries with conditions that prevent nationals from returning safely. Get ready for the other half of Islamic Somalia to move to Maine and Ohio, Washington. Basically it’s like locking your door AFTER the gang of rapists enter and find your daughter’s room.

    I wholeheartedly thank Democratic leaders for rejecting this rancid proposal outright.
