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: NEVER FORGET: Bernie Was Asked to Leave Hippie Commune for Refusing to Work

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.

Vladimir Putin Makes Hypersonic Missile Threat Against United States

At this time, it is believed that Putin’s hypersonic arsenal is “ostensibly invincible”.

Russia

While the democrats secretly hope that Robert Mueller can prove that President Trump is some sort fo Russian asset, the Kremlin is making terrifying threats against the United States.

The absurdity of Mueller’s conspiracy cabal aside, the tension between the United States and Russia is at a level likely not experienced since the end of the Cold War.  Not only have both parties withdrawn from an important nuclear arms treaty in recent weeks, but President Trump was dealt an ugly hand when former President Obama took a few parting shots at Putin on his way out of the Oval Office.

Now, in a risky escalation of rhetoric, Russian President Vladimir Putin has made an overt and harrowing threat toward the USA.

Russian President Vladimir Putin delivered his version of a State of the Union address on Wednesday and included a threat to target the United States with ostensibly invincible hypersonic nuclear-capable missiles if the U.S. deploys intermediate-range ballistic missiles to Europe.

Putin’s threat was a response to U.S. withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty, which the United States has long accused Russia of violating. Putin claimed those accusations were false and suggested Washington was merely looking for a pretext to scuttle the INF so it could deploy land-based missiles to Europe.

Putin insisted Russia will not be the first to deploy ground-launched ballistic missiles in Europe but will retaliate if America does so.

Putin’s hypersonic missiles are believed to be impervious to current anti-missile arrays and batteries due to their unfathomable speed of travel high in the earth’s atmosphere.

CNN Airs Homophobic Rant on Roger Stone’s Prison Time…AGAIN

Shame on CNN, and shame on those who advertise with them.

Published

CNN

If you tend to watch the commercials that mainstream media have made for themselves in recent months, you would get one, singular impression:  That every news station is the only one telling the truth.

“Facts” and “truth” have been the premiere marketing buzzwords for mainstream media PR agencies, who are living in a world where the President routinely has to correct the White House press stable whose facts are, by default, a little more dated than the Commander in Chief’s may be.  CNN’s “Facts Matter” slogan is just one such example of the blatant push to legitimize a company whose funding comes from the same corporate interests who’ve muddied the waters of the Washington Swamp.

If we’re unable to at least admit those facts, we have no chance of growing past this oligarchical system we’re obliviously meandering around in.

So, in order to keep those corporate interests happy, CNN has to keep the ratings up.  The best way to keep the ratings up is to produce salacious and addicting content, filled with inflammatory emotion.  (It’s the same reason that reality TV is so invasively popular).

And that is why we have been subjected to, on more than one occasion, homophobic rants on the possible sexual assault of Roger Stone in prison.

CNN again publicly fantasized about that “dandy” Roger Stone getting raped in prison.

This time, it was David Gergen, one of the far-left network’s ancient analysts, who has not said anything interesting or insightful in decades. His job is to pretend to be a Republican and then bash Republicans in the way his media masters demand.

“Roger Stone must also worry that if he goes there — you know, he’s seen as something of a dandy — will he be physically safe? Will he be subject to rape?” Gergen said. “I mean, there must be a lot of things are going through his mind.”

And that wasn’t the first time either.

This is the second time a CNN leftist has planted the seed of Stone’s prison rape in the public’s mind.

Late last month, CNN anchor and anti-Trump activist Jake Tapper, in an obvious reference to prison rape, said Stone “might like” prison.

“No one’s going to cry if Roger Stone goes to jail or when he goes to jail,” former Obama adviser Jen Psaki said of Stone.

“He might like it,” quipped Tapper.

Psaki laughed and added, “He might. Who knows?”

Such a bigoted and insensitive narrative has no place in our homes, let alone while pumping corporate propaganda at us and using our own emotion to keep us watching.

Shame on CNN, and shame on those who advertise with them.
