Border Workers Miss Paycheck in Longest Shutdown EVER

Without a solution on the horizon, We The People are growing restless and united in our angst…a reality that the Washington swamp-dwellers should be very wary of.

government shutdown

As of midnight last night, the American government has now reached uncharted waters…at least in terms of the partial shutdown we currently face.

Neither the democrats nor the President are ready to cave, with both sides vacating each other’s space for the weekend.

This has left the American people in a bind.  Of course, we have our convictions about border security, and we certainly haven’t been shy about sharing them, but the general sense seems to be that enough is enough.  Even the most staunch supporters of the President are beginning to realize the dangers of such a lengthy stalemate.

In an ironic and awful twist to the tale, a great many who work on the border itself went without pay this week.

President Trump saluted a Blackhawk helicopter hovering over the Rio Grande on Thursday, seeking to highlight the need for $5.7 billion for his trademark border wall to stop what he calls an “invasion.”

Next to the president stood a Customs and Border Protection officer and a Border Patrol agent. Both were working unpaid during the partial government shutdown, which on Friday tied the record for the longest in U.S. history.

Among the roughly 800,000 federal employees who’ve gone without pay in the three weeks since the shutdown began are tens of thousands of Border Patrol agents, Customs and Border Protection officers, immigration judges and Coast Guard crews — the workers on the front lines of the border security problems that the White House and Congress have been fighting over.

What once seemed a valid negotiating tactic is looking more and more like a hostage situation in the eyes of Americans of all political leanings.

Without a solution on the horizon, We The People are growing restless and united in our angst…a reality that the Washington swamp-dwellers should be very wary of.

Michael Cohen Was on The FBI’s Radar LONG BEFORE Being Raided

Mueller’s team was on the trail of Michael Cohen long before the public had any idea.

Michael Cohen

While it may be well understood that the FBI engages in questionably moral behavior from time to time, there is always the hope that the wide berth given to them by the American people won’t be used against them someday.

We won’t really want to know all the gory and clandestine details of the inner workings over in the J. Edgar Hoover Building, which sits just down the street from the White House.  We would just as soon assume that they are simply working on our behalf, and that’s that.

Now, however, with Donald Trump’s “drain the swamp” ethos taking hold with a great many Americans, both in politics and outside of politics, there has been a renewed interest in exactly what The Bureau has been up to.  And, in the case of the wild and limitless “RussiaGate” investigation, the future of the nation could very well lie in the balance.

The FBI was investigating President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney and fixer for nearly a year before agents raided his home and office, documents released Tuesday show.

The search warrant, while heavily redacted, offered new details about the federal inquiry of Cohen’s business dealings and the FBI raids of his Manhattan home and office.

It shows the federal inquiry into Michael Cohen had been going on since July 2017 — far longer than had previously been known.

Michael Cohen is one of several former Trump acquaintances to be prosecuted or interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his probe into a democratic conspiracy theory regarding Donald Trump and the Russian government.

So far, none of the charges filed have revealed any evidence of “collusion” between the two.

Colorado Seeks to Upturn Elections by Bypassing Electoral College

How close are we to eliminating the electoral college? A lot closer than you may think.

It seems that, at least on the democratic side of things, people are turning a wee bit desperate.

The loss of Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump in 2016 was a moment of profound despair for the democratic party.  Not only had they allowed Clinton to essentially take over the primaries to oust rival Bernie Sanders, but Clinton herself had hoped to sway the mainstream media to Donald Trump seriously earlier than they did, believing that he would be a pushover in the general election.

Spoiler alert:  Clinton’s on the couch in Chappaqua and Trump’s sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office.

The democrats were, and still are, gutted.  They continue to radicalize and simmer, and 2020’s election could very well be the final test for the party as a whole.

That’s why many who lean left are doing whatever they can to swing the pendulum back their way, including a serious move by The Centennial State.

Colorado has become the latest state — and the first swing state — to join a group pledging to elect presidents based on who wins the national popular vote.

Eleven other states and the District of Columbia have signed onto the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement that requires those states to select their presidential electors based on who wins the most individual votes nationwide, regardless of which candidate wins in the state.

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis signed a bill Friday bringing the state into the compact.

But will it effect our 2020 Presidential Election?

The compact only goes into effect once states with at least 270 electoral votes — the number needed to win a presidential election — have signed on. While the addition of Colorado brings the electoral count of states in the compact to 181, reaching the 270 point before the 2020 election appears unlikely.

Liberal pundits to this day are certain to point out, whenever the opportunity arises or the mood strikes them, to remind the nation that Hillary Clinton did win the popular vote over Donald Trump; a fact that the President often counters by invoking evidence of voter fraud found by a federal investigation.
