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:

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)

Dems Hold Emergency Call On Mueller Report, Plot Subpoenas, & REFUSE Classified Briefings

Just because Mueller didn’t find anything doesn’t mean Dems are done looking.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller didn’t find any connection between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia. After two long years of searching, Mueller and team confirmed what conservatives had known from the start. And yet, that doesn’t mean Congressional Democrats are done digging for dirt. You can expect the “Russia collusion” narrative to live on as long as President Trump remains commander-in-chief – and that could be for a while longer. Now, Dems are panicking – and they are looking to make big moves. From Daily Wire: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called an emergency conference call of Democratic leadership Saturday afternoon to discuss how to proceed amid news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, may not result in a presidential indictment. “Today, we are having an emergency Caucus conference call at 3:00 p.m. E.T. to discuss the transmittal of the Mueller report to the Department of Justice (DOJ),” Pelosi wrote in a letter to colleagues issued Saturday morning, “While we do not know the substance of the report, we will have the relevant Committees of jurisdiction on the call today to update Members on where we go from here.” […] Pelosi also made clear, in her letter ahead of the call, that Democrats do not intend to let the issue of Russian collusion go, even if Mueller’s report — as suspected — shows no evidence of actual collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials to impact the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election. Fox News host Chris Wallace isn’t exactly 100% pro-Trump. There are times he’s in 45’s corner, and there are times he’s not. It is what it is. At the very least, Fox News can definitively say they are “fair and balanced” in that they provide…

WATCH: Ilhan Omar Encourages Muslim Crowd to ‘Raise Hell, Make People Uncomfortable’

WHOA!!

Freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar has raised plenty of hell on her own. Her anti-Israel leanings are abundantly clear. Now, Omar has encouraged Muslims to “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable.” And no, that’s not a typo. She actually said that. From The Blaze: Controversial freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) encouraged some 400 Los Angeles-area Muslims Saturday to “raise hell” and stand defiant in the face of what she characterized as rampant discrimination against the Muslim community. Omar’s comments came during a fundraising event for the Los Angeles chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations. She was one of several keynote speakers. Omar said, “I say raise hell, make people uncomfortable. Because here’s the truth. For far too long, we have lived with the discomfort of living as second class citizens, and frankly I’m tired of it and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1109843664862355461?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1109843664862355461&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theblaze.com%2Fres%2Fcommunity%2Ftwitter_embed%2F%3Fiframe_id%3Dtwitter-embed-1109843664862355461%26created_ts%3D1553442324.0%26screen_name%3DRealSaavedra%26text%3DRep.%2BIlhan%2BOmar%2B%2528D-MN%2529%2Bclaims%2Bthat%2BMuslims%2Bin%2Bthe%2BU.S.%2Bare%2B%25E2%2580%259Csecond-class%2Bcitizens%252C%25E2%2580%259D%2Bencourages%2Bthem%2Bto%2B%25E2%2580%259Craise%2Bhell%252C%25E2%2580%25A6%2Bhttps%253A%252F%252Ft.co%252Fhd09lCwouI%26id%3D1109843664862355461%26name%3DRyan%2BSaavedra Omar then targeted President Trump: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1109867487787544576?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1109867487787544576&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theblaze.com%2Fres%2Fcommunity%2Ftwitter_embed%2F%3Fiframe_id%3Dtwitter-embed-1109867487787544576%26created_ts%3D1553448004.0%26screen_name%3DRealSaavedra%26text%3DIlhan%2BOmar%2Bsuggests%2BTrump%2Bis%2Bresponsible%2Bfor%2Bviolence%2Bagainst%2BMuslims%2Bworldwide%2Band%2Bthat%2Bhe%2Bis%2Bintentionally%2Bsendin%25E2%2580%25A6%2Bhttps%253A%252F%252Ft.co%252FscXf38C68P%26id%3D1109867487787544576%26name%3DRyan%2BSaavedra Ilhan could also care less about what pro-Israel protesters have to say. https://twitter.com/AdamMilstein/status/1109604130899849216?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1109604130899849216&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F45045%2Filhan-omar-trashes-pro-israel-protesters-could-ryan-saavedra WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1109862805224644608?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1109862805224644608&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F45045%2Filhan-omar-trashes-pro-israel-protesters-could-ryan-saavedra South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn is one of the top Democrats in the House. He literally just insulted all Jewish Americans in one swoop in order to defend Omar, the freshman lawmaker with the wildly anti-Semitic history. Why do this? Who knows? Here are the details… From The Hill: Clyburn came to Omar’s defense Wednesday, lamenting that many of the media reports surrounding the recent controversy have omitted mentioning that Omar, who was born in Somalia, had to flee the country to escape violence and spent four years in a Kenyan refugee camp before coming to the United States. Her experience, Clyburn argued, is much more empirical — and powerful — than that of people who are generations removed from the Holocaust, Japanese internment camps during World…
