Furious Furloughed Federal Workers Descend on DC Swamp to Demand Action

It’s the ruling class versus the working class on the streets of DC this weekend as protesters take their gripes to Pennsylvania Avenue.

government shutdown

Americans are becoming increasingly disenfranchised with the asinine behavior of our elected officials, and a breaking point seems to be in the offing.

The partial government shutdown that we are currently navigating is undoubtedly sending us in the direction of civil unrest, as nearly a million government workers are being asked to continue toiling away at their jobs despite their net-zero paychecks.

This has led to massive callouts at the TSA, the suspension of routine food inspections by the FDA, and a general sense of anger and lament among We The People.  The Washington fat cats are too proud to compromise, and the working class Americans who are affected by this sinful pride have reached a tipping point.

It’s the ruling class versus the working class on the streets of DC this weekend as protesters take their gripes to Pennsylvania Avenue.

Hundreds of furloughed government workers and contractors descended on the White House on Thursday to plead to be allowed to return to work.

Holding signs such as “Stop the war on workers” and “We want work, not walls,” the protesters assembled in the bitter cold outside of AFL-CIO union headquarters before making their way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The anger was palpable.

“I’d like the shutdown to end. I’d like to go back to my job,” said Matthew Chrichton, a 32-year-old staffer for the Peace Corps, adding that he’d moved to Washington for his job four months ago and “living in DC is expensive.”

“I have rent to pay,” he said. “I have bills I need to pay. I want to go to work, and I can’t because they can’t figure out how to fund the government.”

The action comes after weeks of populists uprisings in France, in which the French people have railed against their own government’s lack of care for the people of that nation.

If the American government shutdown doesn’t end soon, there is little doubt that scenes similar to those we’ve witnessed in Paris could be on the horizon.

National Border Patrol Council Local 2554 is proud to represent 630 border patrol agents in Calexico, El Centro, and Indio, California. Thrasher Coffee has now become the official coffee of Local 2554. Thrasher is behind hot blends such as “MAGA” and “Border Blend.” A pro-Trump agency working with a pro-Trump coffee company? WIN, WIN, WIN! Check out some of the AMAZING pictures posted by Local 2554… While Local 2554 can’t speak on behalf of the entire National Border Patrol Council, they are proud to be drinking Thrasher Coffee. Now, we need to spread the word to make Thrasher Coffee the official coffee of every local border patrol outlet. Could you imagine how crazy this would make the left if they ever found out? They’d absolutely lose their minds. Mike Matzke, president of NBPC Local 2554, stated the following: Dear Members of Thrasher Coffee: National Border Patrol Council Local 2554 represents the 630 Border Patrol Agents that work in Calexico, El Centro, and Indio California. These agents work on the border every night and it is imperative that they be alert to stay alive and protect our country. Our union office is a 24/7 that is on call when our agents get into use of force incidents. I have recently tried your MAGA and Border Blend coffees and I believe TThrasher Coffee and NBPC Local 2554 would work well together. Our union office is stocked with many coffees but I believe your border blend represents a topic that is near and dear to El Centro Sector Border Patrol Agents (I have included some pictures). I would like to make Thrasher Coffee the official coffee of NBPC Local 2554. […] We would like to thank Thrasher Coffee for the important work you do and your obvious support for the President of the…

REPORT: Last ISIS Stronghold In Syria Liberated, Caliphate Destroyed [Developing]

All Trump, all day!

The day Donald Trump was elected president, bad guys the world over shook in their boots. They knew from that day forward, America would no longer take a reactionary stance, rather, she would be pro-active when it came to defeating evil. The bottom line is that the Trump administration is getting things done. It’s that simple. Here’s yet another example… From Daily Wire: The ISIS caliphate in Syria has reportedly been destroyed as the Islamic terrorist organization’s last stronghold in Baghouz, Syria has reportedly been liberated as an official announcement is pending. Fox News notes that the severe devasation in the area lasts for miles and that local fighters “are all so grateful to the U.S., not just for their help in the battle, but now for its decision to leave troops here when it’s done.” Trump tweeted the following: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108479818000224256?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1108479818000224256&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F44949%2Fbreaking-last-isis-stronghold-liberated-caliphate-ryan-saavedra Check this out from National Security Adviser John Bolton: https://twitter.com/ABCPolitics/status/1104737401165897733?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1104737401165897733&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F44949%2Fbreaking-last-isis-stronghold-liberated-caliphate-ryan-saavedra In 2016, Ilhan Omar was elected to Congress. That year, nine Minnesota men were charged with plotting to join ISIS. Omar, who has blasted Israel for a good long while and has been photographed with some questionable personalities (as you’ll see below), asked the judge to show “compassion.” Compassion for men who want to join ISIS, huh? Wild. From Fox 9: The 9 Minnesota men charged with planning to join ISIS are scheduled to be sentenced next week. Ahead of those court dates, 13 letters were sent to Judge Michael Davis in the case of defendant Abdirahman Yasin Daud, including a letter from state Rep. Ilhan Omar, who on Election Night became with first elected Somali-American lawmaker in the nation. Rep. Omar asked Judge Davis for “compassion” and a “restorative approach to justice,” concluding that “this ruling can set a precedent and has the potential to be a landmark…
