Gov’t Funding Deal Reportedly Reached, with SOME Border Wall Included

Not everyone is loving the deal, however…just ask Sean Hannity.

government shutdown

During the last few months, we as Americans experienced some extraordinary pieces of history.

For instance, we endured the longest government shutdown in the history of our mighty nation, ended only by President Donald Trump’s desire to put 800,000 Americans back to work.  That compromise bought the nation 21 days to reach a budget/border deal – a deadline that arrives again on Friday.

With Congress frantically scrambling to make some sort of deal happen, President Trump has been incredibly insistent upon the need for a border wall within this legislation.  If he doesn’t get it, he has hinted at using a National Emergency declaration to get it built.

Trending: BOMBSHELL: Dems Plot Secret Agreement to Continue Targeting Trump With Investigations

New reports out of Washington DC today show hope of a budget deal having been reached, but with only a paltry portion of border wall included.

Three people familiar with Congress’ tentative border security deal tell The Associated Press that the accord would provide $1.375 billion to build 55 miles of new border barriers.

That’s well below the $5.7 billion President Donald Trump demanded to build over 200 miles of wall along the Mexican boundary. The money will be for vertical steel slats called bollards, not a solid wall.

Democrats dropped their proposal to limit the number of detained immigrants caught inside the U.S. to a daily average of 16,500. Republicans opposed that demand. There is currently no such limit.

Bargainers agreed to fund 40,520 beds to detain immigrants entering or in the U.S. illegally. That’s the same number funded last year, though the actual figure held is around 49,000.

The sources described details of the still-secret agreement only on condition of anonymity.

Television host Sean Hannity has already implored the GOP to reject the deal on the basis of the horribly light border security provided by it.

“By the way, on this new so-called compromise, getting details — $1.3 billion,” he said. “That’s not even a wall, a barrier? I’m going to tell this tonight, and we will get back into this tomorrow — any Republican that supports this garbage compromise, you will have to explain. Look at this crowd. Look at the country. Look at CBS News. Even they say 72 percent of the American people want the heroin to stop, the cartels to stop, the gang members to stop and those that wish us ill.”

The President still has several options left before Friday, and we expect to hear quite a bit of jawing about it in the coming hours.

Unlikely Reception to Sanders on Fox News Worthy of Full Page Ad?

Bernie’s Fox News town hall event smashed expectations, and was apparently worthy of a little gloating from the network.

A peculiar thing occurred in American politics last week, but perhaps it shouldn’t be seen as such an outlier. In a move that shocked many, including President Trump, Bernie Sanders had an amicable and poignant “Presidential Town Hall” on Fox News.  Given the wild biases of the mainstream media, particularly when it comes to the far-left leaning democratic socialist from Vermont, many assumed that Sanders’ appearance on Fox would have been a bloodbath. Quite to the contrary, however, Sanders received a decidedly warm reception, even eliciting a hearty cheer from the crowd when explaining his “Medicare for all” wishes. Perhaps the nation truly is suffering from Obamacare in ways that many of us may have predicted. This sort of open-minded political positioning has become rare these days, thanks to the inflammatory practices of the mainstream media.  Fox’s gambling on Bernie paid off big-time, however, and the event has now received a full page advertisement in The Washington Post proclaiming its success. https://twitter.com/feliciasonmez/status/1118865630617395201 The numbers were simply incredible: The ad comes three days after nearly 2.6 million viewers tuned into Fox News’s town hall with Sanders on Monday night, making it the most-watched town hall of this campaign cycle so far, according to Nielsen Media Research. The live event, co-moderated by “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier and “The Story” anchor Martha MacCallum, also delivered 489,000 viewers in the 25- to 54-year-old age bracket that many advertisers cater to. Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, provided Fox News with a considerable ratings bump compared to the same day last year. The network saw an increase of 24 percent in total viewers and 40 percent in the 25- to 54-year-old demographic. It certainly stands to reason that a great many of these viewers were tuning in in order to size up Sanders, who at…

Bill Barr has turned out to be everything President Trump wanted in an attorney general – and more. Former AG Jeff Sessions might’ve faired more favorably in 45’s eyes had he not recused himself from the Mueller investigation, but all of that is in the past. During his Thursday morning address to the media regarding the Mueller report, Barr shut down a reporter who implied he was “covering” for Trump. It was a total boss move. WATCH: https://twitter.com/dcexaminer/status/1118877097244733440?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1118877097244733440&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fwatch-ag-barr-rips-reporter-to-her-face-when-she-implies-hes-covering-for-trump%2F Barr consulted with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and both concluded there was zero evidence against Trump.

Adam Schiff (CA) is not thrilled with Barr. From Fox News: Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., slammed Attorney General Bill Barr on Thursday, stopping just short of asking for his resignation after saying the redacted Mueller report showed Barr misled the American people with his summary report last month. The House Intelligence Committee chairman held a news conference just hours after the nearly 400-page redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released to the public. Schiff claimed Barr “did a great disservice to the county by misrepresenting significant parts of the Mueller report, by attempting to put a positive spin for the president on the special counsel’s findings” last month. He added, “On the issue of obstruction of justice, the report outlines multiple attempts by the president to mislead the country, to interfere with the investigation, to make false statements to the American people and to urge others to lie to the American people… that these actions had a material impact on the investigation.” Schiff noted, “If the special counsel, as he made clear, had found evidence exonerating the president, he would have said so. He did not. He left that issue to the Congress of the…
