GOP Rep. Makes Shock Announcement About His Pay During Gov’t Shutdown (Details)

How about them apples?

Except for leadership positions, every member of Congress earns $174,000 taxpayer dollars annually.

Of course that’s way too much, but that’s a story for another day.

Freshman Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw, the Navy SEAL whose war wounds were made fun of by “Saturday Night Live,” just made a widely-praised announcement about his salary during the government shutdown.

Freshly sworn-in Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw is not just talking the talk, but walking the walk. The popular Texas congressman announced Thursday that he will not be taking a paycheck until the security at the southern border is properly funded and the government shutdown ends.

He wrote:

I cannot in good conscience get paid while federal employees’ financial futures hang in the balance because of this partial government shutdown. I’ve asked the Chief Administrative Officer to withhold my pay until we have come to an agreement to adequately fund border security.

Socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) called for members of Congress to not accept their pay during a shutdown, but she has yet to make an announcement similar to Crenshaw’s…

“Saturday Night Live” castmate Pete Davidson lost his father, a firefighter, on 9/11.

Since then, Davidson has been to rehab for drugs and admitted to having mental health issues.

Pete was engaged to singer Ariana “I hate America” Grande, but the two have since parted ways.

“Disgusting” Pete and SNL had no problem whatsoever openly mocking then-Congressional candidate Crenshaw’s war wounds.

Check out Crenshaw’s excellent response:

Reactions:

The full clip:

SNL may have just lost the remaining conservative viewers they might’ve still had.

On the other hand, Davidson is a comedian. His job is to tell jokes and not be politically correct, as Crenshaw implied.

Before departing to Texas on Thursday, President Trump spoke with the press outside of the White House.

He revealed what will happen if Republicans cave to Democrats on the border wall.

Trump: “I have the absolute right to declare a national emergency … I’m not prepared to do that yet, but if I have to, I will.

If this doesn’t work out, probably I will do it. I would almost say definitely.”

WATCH:

From The Hill:

The Democratic-led House approved a bill Wednesday to reopen the Treasury Department, Internal Revenue Service and Small Business Administration, among other federal agencies.

The chamber voted 240-188 to advance the measure, with eight Republicans bucking party lines to back the bill, which is the first of four bills expected to be brought to the floor by Democrats.

The Republicans who voted to advance the measure Wednesday included Reps. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), Will Hurd (Texas), Fred Upton (Mich.), John Katko (N.Y.), Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Greg Walden (Ore.), Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) and Herrera Beutler (Wash.).

Again, the names:

-Elise Stefanik (NY)

-Will Hurd (TX)

-Fred Upton (MI)

-John Katko (NY)

-Brian Fitzpatrick (PA)

-Greg Walden (OR)

-Adam Kinzinger (IL)

-Herrera Beutler (WA)

Kamala Says Giuliani Broke ‘Many Laws,’ Then Admits She Doesn’t Know Which Ones (Video)

So, which is it?

This guy is connected to Donald Hitler Trump. Of course he broke many laws. Which ones? How should I know, Anderson? I’m just out here saying whatever liberals want me to say. I don’t even really know why I’m running for office! That’s my Kamala Harris impression. Spot on, right? LOL. The California progressive has no shot at earning the Democrat nomination. Like all other Dems, Kamala talks and talks but has no real answers for any question. How can you say a man broke “many laws” and then not know which laws he broke? Is this a case of guilty before proven innocent? Sure sounds like it. From Daily Wire: Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris claimed during a Friday interview on CNN that Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani had “broken many laws,” but, when pressed on what specific laws she thinks that he has broken, Harris struggled to give any examples. Harris appeared on “Anderson Cooper 360°” where she was asked about recent reports alleging that Giuliani is under federal investigation over his business dealings in Ukraine after two men that he was allegedly connected to were arrested by federal authorities.

Trump Scraps G-7 Meeting At His Doral Resort, Blasts Media & Dems for ‘Irrational Hostility’

A win for the left?

John Salvatore

Published

on

President Trump wanted to host next year’s G-7 Summit at his resort in Miami. That’s not happening anymore. As with all things Trump, the left had a conniption. What POTUS did was avoid a future headache. Trump made it clear on Twitter on Saturday night how upset he was with Dems and the mainstream media for causing yet another uproar. He also noted that this arrangement would have come at “ZERO COST to the USA.” But, it’s a done deal. Game over. No G-7 at Doral. 45’s tweets: I thought I was doing something very good for our Country by using Trump National Doral, in Miami, for hosting the G-7 Leaders. It is big, grand, on hundreds of acres, next to MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, has tremendous ballrooms & meeting rooms, and each delegation would have… https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1185726930764611589 …..its own 50 to 70 unit building. Would set up better than other alternatives. I announced that I would be willing to do it at NO PROFIT or, if legally permissible, at ZERO COST to the USA. But, as usual, the Hostile Media & their Democrat Partners went CRAZY! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1185726931611852802 ….Therefore, based on both Media & Democrat Crazed and Irrational Hostility, we will no longer consider Trump National Doral, Miami, as the Host Site for the G-7 in 2020. We will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately. Thank you! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1185735579327193093 More from Fox News: Trump first made the suggestion to have the 2020 G7 at his Doral resort in August at the 2019 summit in France, sparking controversy over the ethics of a president profiting off an official government event. One day after Mulvaney’s announcement, a trio of Democratic lawmakers introduced legislation to block the president from hosting next year’s summit. Reps. Lois Frankel from Florida, Bennie…
