I’ll bet you didn’t know that the Democrats in the House have voted against a bill to pay federal workers even during the shutdown… TWICE, already. That’s because the media keeps ignoring the story.

The Democrats have spent more than 30 days, now, using the poor federal workers as a campaign wedge to attack Donald Trump and it appears they are not willing to give up their pawns anytime soon, even if it does hurt those workers they claim to be championing.

But after a month of complaining about how federal workers are forced to go without pay during this partial government shutdown, the Democrats just voted against a bill that would pay these poor, poor government workers.

And it’s the second time they’ve done it.

Republicans have voted twice already to pay government workers during the shutdown while the Democrats have voted against it.

Newly seated Texas Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw joined FOX & Friends Thursday to discuss the GOP efforts to pay federal employees during the partial shutdown.

Crenshaw has put a stop to his own congressional paycheck during the shutdown, so he is definitely not talking from a position of hypocrisy, here.

Rep. Crenshaw slammed the Democrats for using federal workers as pawns in their cynical political powrerplay against President Trump.

“This is a very little-known fact but it’s very important,” Crenshaw, said. “Over the last week, we voted twice on a motion to recommit, which would send an appropriations bill back to committee, in order to pay federal workers.”

“Now this is separate from the bipartisan plan to give them back pay. That’s separate. This is two other bills that would actually pay them in real time. This would actually pay them right now.”

Republicans have introduced bills to pay workers outside a full government budget. But Democrats have refused to vote for the bills.

“This is important. If their priority is really federal workers, and that’s a laudable priority for sure, then let’s actually pay them so that they can’t be used as pawns,” Crenshaw added. “If we’re not paying them, then I don’t know what else to say except that Democrats actually want them as leverage and that’s really not right.”

But did you notice something about this story?

That’s right, you have not heard about these bills to pay the federal workers in the media.

Democrats have refused to pay the workers, yet the media has completely ignored the story.

Why have you not heard it? Because the story might tend to hurt the Democrat agenda.

Seattle Police Chief Shreds City Council After Angry Activists Target Her Home

The chief of police for the city of Seattle has come out hard against city council for allowing “mob rule” in the city after angry activists — the same folks who claim to be out for equality and tolerance — targeted her home over the weekend, which caused fear to spread among her neighbors. Folks, no matter what side of the issue you stand on, the fact that individuals are feeling threatened by acts of violence and rioting due to the work of these people and their unhinged behavior is totally unacceptable. Here’s more on this from The Daily Wire: “I wanted to update you on recent events, particularly those that occurred late last night,” Best wrote in a letter addressed to City Council President Lorena González and Public Safety Chair Lisa Herbold. “A residence of mine in Snohomish County was targeted by a large group of aggressive protestors late last night. My neighbors were concerned by such a large group, but they were successful in ensuring the crowd was not able to trespass or engage in other illegal behavior in the area, despite repeated attempts to do so. Currently, the local sheriff (not SPD resources) is monitoring the situation.” “I urge both of you, and the entire council, to stand up for what is right. These direct actions against elected officials, and especially civil servants like myself, are out of line with and go against every democratic principle that guides our nation,” Best continued. “Before this devolves into the new way of doing business by mob rule here in Seattle, and across the nation, elected officials like you must forcefully call for the end of these tactics.” “The events of this summer were initiated in a moment of grief and outrage over the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis…

Ex-White House Spokesman Says Joe Biden Shouldn’t Debate President Trump

Published

on

One of the major benefits of having all of this coronavirus hoopla going on in our nation is that the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, Joe Biden, has an excuse to avoid public appearances and making a bigger fool of himself than he already has over the last 12 months. Then again, maybe that’s why the left is fighting so hard to keep mass gatherings limited or completely banned? Perhaps, just maybe, Biden’s campaign doesn’t want the guy to be able to debate Trump publicly for fear of how much of a fool he’ll look like and out of fear that the stupid things he says will be impossible to bounce back from? If you think that sounds far-fetched, check out what a former press secretary for President Bill “let’s party hardy at Epstein Island” Clinton said about Biden debating the president. He said Biden should just not show up. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: Joe Lockhart penned an op-ed piece for CNN in which he advises the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate to ignore the three debates, which begin Sept. 29. “Whatever you do, don’t debate Trump,” Lockhart wrote last week. “Trump has made more than 20,000 misleading or false statements according to the Washington Post. It’s a fool’s errand to enter the ring with someone who can’t follow the rules or the truth. Biden will undoubtedly take heat from Republicans and the media for skipping the debates. But it’s worth the risk as trying to debate someone incapable of telling the truth is an impossible contest to win.” Yeah. Or you could just admit that your candidate has clear mental health issues going on and you’re afraid he’s going to say something incoherent or outrageous that’s going to draw a lot of attention. Just tell the truth, folks. And…
