Yet another drama queen moment brought to you by the morons in elected seats in D.C. A joke, as usual but at least it moves the eye of the public from what is going on to the almost annual charade termed a shut down. I seem to remember that last time this happened they shut down monuments and parks and angered a whole lot of veterans who had come to see the memorials in D.C. Yeah, real bright folk we have running this mess.
Kill the power and water to all government facilities, stop the checks, halt the military. Lets shut the damned thing down for real this time. Gimme some old fashioned mayhem and true hand wringing. Fat chance in hell that will ever happen.
I think I will go count the raisins in my oatmeal-more productive than paying any attention to the legions of idiots in Washington...
I find it telling that while the IRS and their fans are bragging about skimming(stealing)record tax receipts from the peasants they seem to be running out of money to run things? Huh? Splain' that to me, Lucy. Too bad the GAO does not have the spine to audit this disaster of a government. Bet they would find some interesting pockets lined with much money. Of course the GAO is probably on the take as well. Nothing changes.
Oh NO!! A memo!! What is coming next? A Post It note?!?? I made an attempt to decipher the rampant 'lawyerese' of this mess and have given up. Too many code words and abbreviations coupled with the constant double speak that comes out of that part of the country puts me off even more. It would be nice if the mother ship dropped down and leveled the whole place.
And next month there will be another devastating 'crisis' popping up. The charade continues...
And now we are to this juncture-trump is a bag of dung at best and all his appointed loons fall into the same bucket-some surprise, no? I am grossly offended that I have to exchange gases with this turd on the same planet. Pity for the people that work there, but I would enjoy a bunker buster dropped on the white house at this point. Or better, herd chump and his freak show excuse for a "family"(hired or not) onto Marine One and drop them about 30 miles out in the Atlantic. That genetic strain would be best removed from the planet. All of them.
Oh..please be sure to drop that rictal grinning weasel Giuliani along with them. Hell-you would think that idiot would at least be able to afford dentures that fit his smarmy face...especially after all the decades of screwing his "clients". But then he "works" for a fag that wears light pink eye shadow...WTF is that about? I hope his " base' is real proud of what this shithead has done...
Not familiar with Gabbard-there are so many popping up now it reminds me of Wack-A_ Mole. It is obvious that something needs be done about chump and his fat pals. Ever notice most of them have seen their shoes in decades? Curious. It takes me a great deal of energy to deal with the news now and frankly to do anything. I am mostly spent but still hanging on perhaps in hopes that something will bring this nation back to its sense. but i fear it is close to being lost due to chump and his hired idiots. If it survives it will take decades to undo the damage this fool has wrought. We had headed more or less in a sane direction for a time but now we are where...?
Perhaps Booger King should bring out the Chump Burger-full of shit and splattered with cheese and ketchup. I bet his base would gobble them down.

IMO all thats going to change is when the currency collapses.Until then the sociopaths 'rule'.They rule now,theyve ruled my entire life,they will rule when Im gone.They are all murderers and thieves,nothing new here IMO.And for sure NOTHING we think matters.
The Bushes raped us with Afghanistan/Haliburton and the endless war on terror.The Clintons sold us out to chiner and the muslooms.Oblamo and his tranny wife sold us out to the queer agenda and banker debt.Johnson bled us dry in VietNam,which Nixon ran with,Raygun balloned the gov and tripled our debt.
They killed JFK for challenging the men behind the curtain.Cant have the treasury issue money that isnt based on debt.
They are just the puppet clowns.If voting mattered they wouldnt let us do it.They dance to the puppet masters tunes....or else.
Nothing has changed.Meet the new boss,same as the old boss. God save the queen.
And it is also a distraction from the real issue that Trump put front and center, the Democrats’ weakness on foreign policy.
By announcing the pull out of U.S. troops from Syria and Afghanistan he reminded everyone just how much Pelosi ET.AL. love spending your money bombing brown people overseas for their profit.
As I said, appearance of strength is all that matters in politics at this level. Pelosi cannot afford to look at all weak during a government shutdown she started to oppose Trump and regain the White House in 2020.
So, while Pelosi is focused on being the establishment’s mouthpiece for taking down Trump to regain control over the vast government machinery, rebellions are happening within her own party.
Enter Tulsi Gabbard.
Gabbard has real promise as the anti-war/anti-empire insurrectionist within the Democrats. She is a leftist version of Ron Paul in that she’s hated by everyone who thinks they are someone.
Because nothing unites the DNC and the RNC like the threat of peace getting an audience on the national stage.
When “anti-incumbent” is the watchword of the day, Gabbard throwing her hat into the 2020 Presidential race is a big deal. Gabbard will get support from anti-war Republicans, Independents and Libertarians.
They will cross party lines to vote for her in primaries, hurting the anointed ones.
She will successfully fund-raise on ending useless and counter-productive engagements in the Middle East. With her part of the Presidential conversation it forces her opposition to adopt her positions while simultaneously supporting Trump’s struggle against his own staff.
Trump should give her a lifetime membership to Mar-a-Lago.
Yes, she’s a mess economically, but that’s not where her value lies. She’s everything the current Democratic party isn’t: attractive, conscientious, brave and committed to peace.
And that is a nightmare for Pelosi. She’s positioned herself as being against whatever Trump is for. That makes her an easy foil for him.
With Gabbard in the race Trump can go hard on foreign policy and create havoc in the Democratic primaries. As long as he stays in the game, Gabbard is his stalking horse.
Don’t underestimate the political points he scored with canceling Pelosi’s overseas trip. This is the Donald Trump we asked for — end politics as usual.
Confront the banal hypocrisy of our ruling class.
And, most importantly, call out the cheap virtue signaling hacks like Pelosi get a free pass on every day in the media.
Trump made it clear that if Pelosi wants to conspire with foreign leaders against him that she can do it on her own dime.
And having the shutdown as the excuse in a perfect game of brinkmanship made it even more effective.
Pelosi acts like she has Trump dead to rights on petty corruption thanks to Mueller’s songbird Michael Cohen. I don’t discount how hard they are gunning for Trump now. But like Theresa May in the U.K. over Brexit, there is only so much people will take in service of petty party infighting.
Eventually a real political revolt occurs. Just ask Italian Democrats or Emmanuel Macron.
So Pelosi has to be careful how she plays her hand here. She’s losing to Trump on the wall. Every day the argument against it looks both silly and hysterical. $5.7 billion is less than one week’s interest on the national debt.
What do you think of Tulsi Gabbard? She is anti war,strong 2nd amendment, and believes in diplomacy.Has things I disagree with though.
The media is already frying her ALA trump,she talked to Assad so she is his puppet.And David Duke says he agrees with some of her policies so she is a racist KKK supporter.
They fear her,the MIC does.
NOT A DNC PUPPET
Democratic National Committee
Gabbard, a Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee, was critical of the decision by DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to hold only six debates during the 2016 Democratic Party primary season, compared with 26 in 2008 and 15 in 2004. Some have argued that the number of debates was intentionally limited in order to bolster Hillary Clinton's position as the Democratic front-runner, citing Wasserman Schultz's previous position as co-chair of Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign as a conflict of interest and a newly created penalty barring further participation in sanctioned debates for any candidate who participates in an unsanctioned debate as an effort to limit public exposure to other candidates.
 Gabbard appeared on multiple news outlets to express her dissatisfaction with the number of debates. Following her public criticisms, she claimed she was uninvited from attending the Democratic debate in Las Vegas as a result. In a telephone interview with The New York Times, Gabbard stated, "It's very dangerous when we have people in positions of leadership who use their power to try to quiet those who disagree with them. When I signed up to be vice-chair of the DNC, no one told me I would be relinquishing my freedom of speech and checking it at the door."
Gabbard resigned as DNC Vice Chair on February 28, 2016, in order to endorse Senator Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination. She was the first female U.S. Representative to endorse Sanders. At the 2016 Democratic National Convention, Gabbard gave the nominating speech putting his name forward. Furthermore, in July 2016, Gabbard launched a petition to end the Democratic Party's process of appointing superdelegates in the nomination process. She endorsed Keith Ellison for DNC chair in the DNC 2017 chairmanship elections. =========================================
DIPLOMACY,WHAT A CONCEPT!
In January 2017, Gabbard met with President Bashar al-Assad in what she said was an unplanned meeting during a trip to Syria and Lebanon. Gabbard said in a press release that the trip was approved by the House Ethics Committee and sponsored by Arab American Community Center for Economic and Social Services (AACCESS-Ohio). The chairman of AACCESS, Bassem Khawam, accompanied Gabbard on the trip, as did Elie Khawam.
Gabbard "reportedly declined to inform House leadership in advance, met with Bashar al-Assad, toured with officials from a Lebanese political party that actively supports Assad, and received funding from an American organization that counts one of those same officials as its executive director." She later paid for the trip with her own money. On February 7, 2017, it was reported that Gabbard failed to comply with House ethics rules, as she had not filed the required disclosure forms by the deadline, but according to her office she complied with House ethics rules by filing her post-trip financial report by the deadline. Remaining forms and her itinerary were submitted on February 8, 2017.
Sick situation now. trump is done and we will watch the flame out with mixed emotions as a nation. Stone makes me want to hurl. What is the fairy boy even doing in life? A consummate joke, but then again he is just another queer trump fan. Read the Nixon Library comments on this twinkie. Jeeyeezuus what a piece of dung. Typical trump pal. All show and no go. Perhaps Gabbard has some points. At this juncture I would prefer Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy to any of the usual toss...
My time is growing short but pick me for a sorta benign emperor! I am having extreme difficulty walking now and know that the end is nigh. Hah! I need a sandwich board for that.
Enjoy the take down and the circus that is coming. Hint to fools-wear a suit that does not scream "I am an idiot' when you are on camera.. Think about it.
"Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody."
