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.

Trending: Trump Gives HILARIOUS Response When Asked About Socialist Ocasio-Cortez (Watch)

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.

Tim Allen Beats Liberal Establishment, Ratings Soar for ‘Last Man Standing’

Fox execs are now reaping the rewards and dancing on ABC’s grave.

Tim Allen

Tim Allen’s sitcom, Last Man Standing, was canceled by the liberals at ABC even though it was a ratings leader on the network. But now that Fox has picked the show up, Allen is having the last laugh as his show becomes one of Fox’s ratings leaders.

ABC cancelled Last Man Standing after its sixth season, even though it was still among ABC’s top rated shows. There was only one reason for its cancelation. It wasn’t because the show was failing. It was because ABC executives hated the fact that Allen’s show often featured conservative subject matter.

But only a few months after it was unceremoniously dumped by ABC, Fox TV picked the show up for a seventh season.

Now, much to ABC’s dismay, Last Man Standing has become a new ratings leader for Fox.

According to CinemaBlend, LMS has proven Fox executives right for having taken on the show.

What’s especially exciting is that Last Man Standing has only increased in its dominance since returning at midseason to a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 5.66 million viewers. During the January 11 airing, the show actually did a 1.2 rating and increased to 6.21 million total viewers, per TV By The Numbers.

If you look back over Season 7, that’s the highest the show has done in total viewers since the November 9 episode, which brought in 6.3 million total viewers. But forget total viewers, because in total viewers Last Man Standing often loses to its CBS competitors like Blue Bloods and MacGyver. Where Last Man Standing really shines is the coveted advertising demographic, and that’s where Fox should be clapping backs–all the way to the bank.

In one of the seres’ most recent episodes earned the highest ratings of any network TV show on Friday.

“This Friday, Last Man Standing pulled a 1.2 rating, which just so happens to be a number that is a whole lot higher than everything else network TV aired on Friday night,” CB reported. “It’s closest competitors were Fox’s own The Cool Kids, with a 1.0 rating, and CBS’ Hawaii Five-0, with a .9 rating.”

Fox execs are now reaping the rewards and dancing on ABC’s grave.

The show had a few cast changes with the move to Fox. The part of Allen’s grandson, Boyd is now being played by Jet Jurgensmeyer. Allen’s number two daughter, Mandy, is now being played by Molly McCook . And Tisha Campbell took over the role of Carol Larabee. But the rest of the cast stayed on.

In any case, the show is still a hit and has maintained its audience despite ABC’s attempt to destroy it because it is a conservative show.

Hannity Connects the Dots in Massive Anti-Trump Movement Inside the FBI

Sean Hannity’s latest theory is a wild one, but it’s just plausible enough to have raised the President’s blood pressure a bit.

Sean Hannity

Given the certain and sheer tension within the walls of the White House in recent days, it would surprise very few educated Americans to see some in the media begin to crack under the pressure.

Undoubtedly, we have already seen a few go off the deep end, with Infowars’ Alex Jones being the most prominent example of late.  Granted, Jones wasn’t too far from the ledge at any given point in time, and it only took a heady gust of wind to submerge the conspiracy theorist.  Still, when the fringes fall away, a new frontier emerges.

One of the most vocal proponents of President Trump, at least in the mainstream media, has been Sean Hannity.  Unabashedly so, at times.

That is why it will be easy for the left to dismiss one of the host’s latest hypotheses as conspiracy, but they would be doing a disservice unto themselves in such a case.

Let’s hear Sean Hannity out.

During his Monday night monologue, the cable host purported to have “a bombshell” scoop on the “deep state” that far surpassed anything Fox News had previously realized regarding the intelligence community and the ousting of former FBI Director James Comey.

“We now know top people within the FBI, filled with hatred, and frankly, anti-Trump rage, have put aside all values and their blatant political bias, were seeking redemption for the firing of James Comey,” he asserted. “They actually plotted to destroy your duly-elected president, and this goes way beyond what we already knew up until this point.”

However, the main piece of evidence Hannity held up to back his claim was a quote from Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) who told the network that “in May 2017, political bias infected senior FBI leadership, and emotion ― not evidence ― drove their decision-making.”

Hannity then went for the jugular:

Touting Ratcliffe’s remark on bias, Hannity slammed the intel community for opening the probe “without a single shred of evidence, zero probable cause, zero proof of any collusion.”

“It was a witch hunt,” he declared.

There is no doubt that the President will have seen this broadcast, and there is little doubt that he’ll remain silent on the subject either.
