Government Shutdown

As the democrats continues to dig their heels in against the will of the American people, our government is in a partial shutdown.

The left believed that Donald Trump would blink on the border wall funding, and they would skate by with yet another short-term, temporary spending bill that would allow for yet another bipartisan fight in the coming months.  Of course, the American people have been firm in their desires for some time, hoping to place a physical barrier on the southern border in order to stymy those who wish to use the United States for their own nefarious purposes.

Given that the fight has now had our federal government shuttered for several days, the National Park Service has been forced to abandon their posts – including at the National Christmas Tree in Washington DC.

WJLA reports that a grant from the National Park Foundation has allowed the National Christmas Tree to reopen and operate until January 1st. The tree is located south of the White House on the Ellipse and is a live spruce tree covered in twinkling lights.

The lights on the tree were lit Monday afternoon after nightfall and are available to be viewed by all.

And it was just the shutdown that had the tree in the spotlight either.

The reopening of the tree comes just a few days after the tree was closed on Friday due to a man climbing 15 to 20 feet up the tree, damaging it in the process. Due to the government shutdown, funds to repair the tree were not allocated, and many worried that the lighting of the tree would not be possible. Fortunately, a grant from the National Park Foundation has meant that the tree will be lit as it is every Christmas.

Did we really think that an annoyed Donald Trump, marooned at the White House due to the shutdown, was going to let that tree stand unlit during the holiday?

Save conservative media!

Here’s a story you don’t see all the time…or ever. Then again, this is the year 2020 – anything goes. If you’re a history buff, here’s your break from politics for a few minutes. Check this out, via News & Observer: The historic Cape Hatteras Light Station grounds were closed Thursday after a bomb appeared in the surf at Buxton on the Outer Banks, according to the National Park Service. A half-mile safety perimeter was established to keep tourists out, including the lighthouse grounds, nearby parking lots and surrounding beach, officials said in a release. The iconic lighthouse, with its famous black and white stripes, dates to 1870. “After careful examination, a U.S. Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit from Norfolk, Virginia, confirmed that the object … is a live military ordnance,” the National Park Service said in an update Thursday night.

Trump Was A Longtime Presbyterian, Now He Says He Is Non-Denominational Christian

Doin’ things his way…

From New York Post: President Trump, who has long identified as a Presbyterian, now considers himself a non-denominational Christian, a new report said. The president shared his change in religious identity in a written interview with the Religious News Service. “Though I was confirmed at a Presbyterian church as a child, I now consider myself to be a non-denominational Christian,” Trump wrote, without giving an explanation for the transformation or saying when it occurred. Because everything is so PC and everybody is afraid of saying the wrong thing, free speech is at an all-time low. People are getting fired from their jobs, even expelled from school. At the end of the day, this proves that the left is winning. And it has to stop.
