NBC Says Shutdown “Doomsday” is Coming, Publishes Checklist

Here’s what you can expect if the ‘you-know-what’ hits the fan.

government shutdown

With the mainstream media, by nature, designed to increase in fervor as any particular topic lingers too long, there is no way of telling which way is up on this government shutdown.

Through all the hyperbole and fanatical rantings that we suffer on television, the truth is out there:  800,000 federal workers won’t be getting a paycheck because Congress refuses to pass a budget bill that includes President Trump’s requested amount.  We are currently three days shy of the record of a 21-day shutdown, part of the Bill Clinton presidency, and there is seemingly no end in sight.

The heels are dug in.  The doors have been slammed.  Those boats have sailed.  Whatever metaphor you like.  They all apply.

NBC has taken this sentiment a bit further, however, outlining, in detail, what a “shutdown doomsday” scenario would look like.

“We’ll be in no man’s land,” Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, told NBC News.

If the worst were to happen, experts say the devastating impact would be widespread:

  • 2 million without rental assistance and facing possible eviction

  • 800,000 paycheck-less federal employees plunged into dire financial straits

  • Shuttered parks and museums while overstressed airports cause tourism to tank

  • Lapsed FDA and EPA inspections lead to dangerous outbreaks

  • Private companies looking to go public are stuck in limbo

Over the course of the last 24 hours, the democratic position has invariably weakened, with even celebrities such as Cher calling on Nancy Pelosi to cut a deal.

BOMBSHELL: Judge Who Blocked Trump’s Border Wall Donated $30,000 to Obama & Dems

Hmm. Anything fishy here?

Oh, good. Another Obama judge blocking President Trump from doing things to benefit all Americans. Haywood Gilliam just found himself in a big mess, but it’s all his doing. From Washington Examiner: A federal judge who partially blocked President Trump’s plans to build a border wall along the United States-Mexico border previously donated almost $30,000 to former President Obama, other Democrats, and a political action committee. U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam, an Obama appointee confirmed in 2014, donated $6,900 to Barack Obama’s debut campaign for president and $14,500 to his reelection campaign, according to federal election records. The same records also indicate he contributed $4,500 to the Democratic National Committee in 2012 and, between 2012 and 2015, sent $3,100 to the Covington Burling LLP PAC, which supports candidates from both parties. His contributions totaled $29,000. But wait! There’s more… Gilliam made the donations, first reported by the Epoch Times, prior to serving as a U.S. District judge. He had said during his confirmation hearing that he “would base my decisions solely on the facts of each case and the applicable precedent, without regard to any political ideology or motivation,” and that “any personal views would not interfere in any way with my ability to neutrally apply the law.” Patrick Shanahan will most likely become the next Secretary of Defense after he was recently nominated to the post by President Trump. Shanahan is currently the acting SecDef, having filled the shoes of James “Mad Dog” Mattis. Shanahan made clear that hundreds of miles of wall have been contracted to be built on America’s southern border with Mexico. Democrat hearts are breaking across the country. So @ActingSecDef just told Congress that 256 new miles of Trump’s Wall is now funded to be built, at the rate of half a mile every…

WATCH: CNN Says Stuttering Pelosi Tweet Is A ‘Smear,’ But Nancy’s Attacks On POTUS Are Valid

Double standard, much??

John Salvatore

When President Trump sends a tweet of Speaker Pelosi stuttering, it’s a “smear.” When Pelosi and Democrats say 45 is mentally unfit for office, it’s no big deal. That’s how things work in Liberalville. Up is down and nothing makes sense. For your entertainment, enjoy the musings of CNN’s Brian Stelter… WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1132744472037511168?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132744472037511168&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F421760-cnns-brian-stelter-claims-showing-pelosi-problems-is-smear-but-her-attack-on-trumps-mental-health-shows-real-concerns-about-him%2F Due to the conservative policies of President Trump, unemployment in America just hit a 50-year low. Unemployment now stands at 3.6 percent, which is undoubtedly a milestone for the Trump administration – and the United States, as a whole. Women and black Americans, in particular, are thriving. And yet, far-left Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) doesn’t see it that way – continuing to play politics at every turn. Pelosi argues that the low unemployment rate is “promising,” but it doesn’t do enough. WE NEED MORE GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION! Here’s her official statement (bold mine)… “The April jobs report numbers show some promising news, yet these gains hide the true weight of the economic uncertainty felt by millions of hard-working Americans. Unfortunately, the evidence shows that most of the economic gains continue to benefit those already well-off. We must do more to ensure that the economy is benefiting every family in every community, and that all Americans have the opportunity to move ahead in our economy. “Republicans’ shameful special interest agenda continues to undermine the health and financial security of middle class families across the country. This week, two years after House Republicans celebrated their vote to pass the outrageous Trumpcare bill, we still see the devastating impact of the GOP’s continuing health care sabotage. As the Administration continues its monstrous legal campaign to destroy pre-existing condition protections and every benefit provided by the Affordable Care Act, House Democrats are working on taking decisive action to lower health costs and…
