President Schumer agrees to bill funding P.R., Obamacare, abortionists, but no wall


The President and Congress agreed to a spending bill to get the government through to September. President Chuck Schumer said

“This agreement is a good agreement for the American people and takes the threat of a government shutdown off the table,” said... Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.). “The bill ensures taxpayer dollars aren’t used to fund an ineffective border wall, excludes poison pill riders and increases investments in programs that the middle class relies on, like medical research, education and infrastructure.”

Since Republicans lost the Presidency and the Congress in the last election, it is no surprise that this spending bill hewed closely to the Democratic agenda. Republicans had tried to include funding for a border wall, but since they are in the minority in Congress they didn't have the power to push it through.

Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi boasted

that they were able to force Republicans to withdraw more than 160 unrelated policy measures, known as riders, including those that would have cut environmental funding and scaled back financial regulations for Wall Street.

The bill does include $12.5 billion more for the military and $1.5 billion for border security, but the border security cannot be used for a wall. Likely it will be used for technology, which will better allow the government to watch illegals crossing the border on TV. The legislation also stipulates that none of the money be spent for a "deportation force" and that there would be no cut in funding to Sanctuary Cities, at least while President Schumer is in the White House.

Democrats fought to include $295 million to help Puerto Rico continue making payments to Medicaid, $100million to combat opioid addiction, and increases in energy and science funding that Trump had proposed cutting..... the legislation will ensure that Planned Parenthood continues to receive federal funding through September.

Obviously Trump, who lost the election, never had any hope of cutting any of these programs with President Schumer showing such resolve. I mean, Schumer can veto legislation if it doesn't fund what he wants. How can Republicans, in the minority in Congress, oppose him? The answer is they can't, their bargaining position is too weak.

What does this spending bill tell us about politics? If we want a government that doesn't fund Planned Parenthood, we need to elect a Republican House of Representatives. If we want a government that doesn't fund Obamacare, we need a Republican Senate. If we want a government to get serious about funding a border wall, we need a Republican President. In the minority, Republicans are powerless to push any of their agenda, just as Democrats are powerless when they are in the minority. That's why we need to push hard to help Republicans win the House, Senate, and Presidency in the next election so we can finally get real change in Washington. Imagine what they could do if they won all three and had total control of government!

How many of Trump's "100 day promises" has he kept?


Donald Trump put together a list of promises he would keep when elected president, not merely by the end of his first term but specifically by the end of his first 100 days in office in his "100 day action plan". How many of these promises has he kept? I have rated the results below on a scale from 1-5 Bannons (more Bannons is good) to 1-5 Kushners (more Kushners is bad).

Jim Hoft is the owner of the Gateway Pundit, a popular website which supported Donald Trump during the election. As a reward, Gateway Pundit was given White House press credentials. Hoft, who is gay, hired Lucian Wintrich, who, by coincidence, is also gay, to cover the White House for GP. Wintrich says he has no training as a journalist and says he knows nothing about journalism. But he does know something about gay porn.

Schumer surprised that Trump hasn't fought for border wall funding


Officially, President Trump has given up on getting funding for his border wall in the upcoming spending bill, saying he will try again in September when another spending bill comes up. Chuck Schumer says he's surprised that Trump hasn't fought for funding for his border wall. In fact, Trump never brings the subject up in their conversations together.

Liberals say 24 year olds should be tried as kids but vote as adults


Liberals have been gradually watering down the criminal justice system. They have launched a campaign to eliminate bail; they want drug addicts and drug dealers released from jail; and they certainly don't want 16 and 17 year olds accused of violent crimes to be charged as adults. Now in a new campaign, liberals are calling for 18 and 19 year olds and even people in their 20's to be charged as children, on the theory that their brains are not fully developed.

Why does Trump's Sanctuary City policy have no teeth?


As Rick Moran noted, President Trump's threat to cut off funding for Sanctuary Cities really about a slice of funding of a very small $27 million dollar pie, because only one federal grant program would be subject to this rule. In practice a major city might lose a five or six figure grant. But that's pocket change for big cities with budgets in the hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars. I was surprised to learn that Trump's threat to "cut off" funding doesn't even apply to all Justice Department grants, just the ones in this one tiny program.
