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.

CNN Says ‘Frustrated’ Democrats Think Trump ‘Go Back’ Comments Are ‘Brilliant’

Trump takes no prisoners.

Published

According to that bastion of journalistic integrity we call CNN, multiple Democrats in the House have said that there are many, many folks in their party who are frustrated with the female freshmen in Congress — known as the “Squad” — and as a result of the building tension and anger, feel Trump’s “go back” comments aimed at Rep. Ilhan Omar are “politically brilliant.” Well, it’s nice to know we the people aren’t the only ones sick of the Squad. Maybe we’ll actually take action against them and work to ensure she does not get re-elected? That would be awesome. via The Daily Wire: In a report published Wednesday after the Trump rally in North Carolina — which included a headline-grabbing moment in which some in the crowd began to chant “Send her back!” in response to Trump’s criticism of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her “vicious anti-Semitic screeds” — CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash reported on the growing frustration among some of the House Democrats over the increased prominence of the “Squad”: Reps. Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). The conversations with several Democrats, whom Tapper and Bash stress span the political spectrum, took place over the last few days — and before the North Carolina rally. “The President won this one,” one House Democrat told CNN in reference to Trump’s focus on the Squad and the Democrats vote Tuesday to condemn his “go back” comments. “What the President has done is politically brilliant. Pelosi was trying to marginalize these folks, and the President has now identified the entire party with them.” “The President’s words and actions speak for themselves,” said another. “We need to focus on the issues that got (Democrats) here: jobs, health care … instead of the issues the President…

From our friends at DC Dirty Laundry: Wow! Many are celebrating this woman pushing a priest off a stage in Brazil. The mass was being broadcast widely and word has it that she did it because… Well… Here’s Gary to tell you why… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJFiE5TQm9c So injuring priests is now celebrated in the LGBT community? Seriously? This unidentified woman is now a hero to lesbians and gays all over the world. But come on! Is this how you make a point? Violence against a priest who just ran a youth camp for 50,000 kids is evil. Horrifying children to make your point? Unbelievable! More from Newsweek: Brazilian priest who is celebrated in the country for his lively sermons was violently pushed from a stage yesterday while delivering mass in Cachoeira Paulista, São Paulo. The incident occurred shortly before 3 p.m. after a woman was able to rush past security and approach Father Marcelo Rossi during a ceremony at the headquarters of Canção Nova, which is a Brazilian Catholic community known for broadcasting religious material online. Rossi, a preaching powerhouse who has reportedly sold millions of musical records in Brazil and was once dubbed a “pop-star priest” by the Associated Press, was seen in video footage of the unexpected mass invasion toppling from the stage as onlookers watched on in shock. Another video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sy9tuV32Ie0 The thing, the priest will instantly forgive this deranged radical lunatic because he’s a good man. And yet, the clearly liberal protester will not care.
