As Shutdown Fight Turns Nasty, Trump Urges McConnell to Go ‘Nuclear’

We will have to see if McConnell’s views have changed due to the President’s not-so-subtle message.

border wall

With less than a day left to keep the government running, Donald Trump is pulling out all the stops, and he’s doing so as publicly as ever.

Among the tumult of the Washington swamp, President Trump has been demanding a wall on our southern border almost incessantly during his first two years as the President.  This isn’t some pet project that he’s obsessed with, however.  This is what the American people responded to on the campaign trail in 2016, and it’s likely a large part of the President’s popularity among the citizens of this great nation.  To defy them is to defy the duty of public servant, and President Trump understands that explicitly.

That’s why he is pushing Mitch McConnell to make a bold and decisive action on border wall funding today.  Nigh, immediately.

“Mitch, use the Nuclear Option and get it done!” he wrote on Twitter. “Our Country is counting on you!”

The government funding bill, including the $5 billion for border security passed the House of Representatives on Thursday with a wide majority.

Senate Democrats have vowed to oppose the bill which would prevent it from reaching the 60 vote threshold required to move forward.

Senator Steve Daines of Montana floated the option of using the nuclear option, which would allow the legislation to move forward with a 51 vote majority.

“House just passed a bill that fully funds government and enables Donald Trump to secure our border/build the wall,” he wrote on Twitter. “Senate can do same by eliminating the filibuster. 51 votes, same as we do for judges!”

McConnell has openly opposed the use of the “nuclear option” in the border wall fight, but that was before the President explicitly called for it.

Teachers Shot by Police with Air Pistols During Shooter Drill Speak Out

The Sheriff’s Department stood by their decision, however, essentially saying that the teachers were shot with the air pistols because they didn’t act quickly enough, like a dog being smacked with a newspaper.

mass shooting

The idea that we, as Americans, must participate in “active shooter” drills is spooky enough, but one law enforcement agency is taking things too far…and teachers are speaking out. The horror and confusion of an active shooter situation is unfathomable for many of us.  Suddenly, at work or school or the subway, the deafening report of gunfire would be instantaneously confusing and oppressive.  Our fight or flight instincts would kick in, sending us to the floor with the possibility of altered auditory senses.  From there, the terror truly begins as we play out any number of scenarios in our heads. These instances are terrifying and harrowing in ways that only those who have lived through them can understand. Active shooter drills, on the other hand, are meant to be learning experiences.  Sure, some urgency is needed to provide us the opportunity necessary to develop the muscle memory desired, but do we really have to shoot teachers with pellet guns in order to get the point across? That’s what one group of educators is pondering today. An Indiana teachers union is demanding change to active shooter drill protocols after teachers at an elementary school reported that they had been injured when they were shot by Airsoft guns during a recent exercise. “During active shooter drill, four teachers at a time were taken into a room, told to crouch down and were shot execution style with some sort of projectiles — resulting in injuries to the extent that welts appeared, and blood was drawn,” a statement from the Indiana State Teachers Association on Wednesday said. Association members said they were injured during the drill at Monticello’s Meadowlawn Elementary School, according to the statement. The drill was conducted by the White County Sheriff’s Department, which defended the methods it used. White County Sheriff Bill Brooks said…

American Schools Are Failures: Most Americans Don’t Know What Bill of Rights Is

The poll tends to prove that liberals have succeeded in undermining America though the thorough destruction of the quality of our education.

Bill of rights

A new study of Americans finds that few have any idea what freedoms are protected by the first ten amendments of the Constitution nor do they know these amendments are called the Bill of Rights. It just shows that the liberals controlling our system of miseducation have succeeded in undermining this country and that our schools are some of America’s biggest enemies. Our schools are failures at teaching and turning out Americans, certainly. But they are a great success at turning out morons and sheep, and this poll proves it. The poll posted to StudyFinds.com finds that most Americans have some vague idea that our First Amendment rights are under attack, but when asked to detail just what the First Amendment is, most had no idea how to respond. The new poll found that six in ten Americans thought our freedom of speech was under attack. That is a good thing… though it should be ten in ten. But, still, at least a majority understand that the left is attacking our rights. Unfortunately, the study also found that most couldn’t name what rights the First Amendment covers nor could they even say how many Amendments make up the Bill of Rights, nor even say what that name even meant. “Of the 2,000 adults who took part in the poll, half thought that ‘liberty’ is one of the five freedoms protected by the First Amendment, while nearly half (49 percent) believed ‘the pursuit of happiness’ was included,” the poll said. “Thankfully, only 3 percent named ‘life’ as one of the protected freedoms.” I am not sure why the folks at StudyFinds thought it was “thankfully” that only a small percentage thought “life” was in the First Amendment but be that as it may. The poll also found that only 26 percent…
