Senate Republicans Smack Down Trump Agenda, REFUSE to Withdraw From Syria

You’re on the same team, guys.

Senate Republicans are fighting President Trump on a major issue.

45 wants to pull U.S. troops from Syria, but the GOP isn’t having it.

On Thursday, the Senate voted 68-23 “expressing opposition” to pulling out, with a large portion of Republicans smacking down the MAGA agenda.

LOOK:

WATCH:

Here’s the list:

“Hopefully, now the president has learned his lesson.” Those are the mocking words of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

Is this the best strategy, though? Has President Trump ever responded in kind to being mocked?

From Daily Wire:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer mocked President Donald Trump on Friday immediately after the president ended the government shutdown so non-essential federal employees could get paid and so both of the nation’s major parties could work on a deal to fund border security.

Schumer noted, “The American people do not like it when you throw a wrench into the lives of government workers over an unrelated political dispute. Working people throughout America empathized with the federal workers and were aghast at what the president was doing to them. Hopefully, now the president has learned his lesson.

Now, once the president signs the continuing resolution, we in Congress will roll up our sleeves and try to find some agreement on border security. Today the president will sign the bill to reopen the government along the outlines of what we have proposed and hopefully it means a lesson learned for the White House and for many of our Republican colleagues: Shutting down the government over a policy difference is self-defeating.

It accomplishes nothing but pain and suffering for the country and incurs an enormous political cost to the party shutting it down.

WATCH:

Many conservatives probably figured Trump agreed to reopen the government so federal workers could receive their back pay. That probably played a part.

However, the real reason was just revealed by Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.

Democrats will not be happy.

From Fox News:

President Trump agreed to re-open the government for three weeks because Democrats signaled they’re willing to negotiate on border security, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday.

Sanders: “The President has opened the government on the basis that Democrats have signaled to us that they’re willing to actually get serious about a real deal and get serious about fixing the border.

WATCH:

The shutdown, of course, occurred because Democrats did not want to give Trump $5.7 billion for a border wall.

A new study suggests the 35-day shutdown actually cost seven times more than the amount of money requested for the wall by the Trump administration.

A new report by a statistics professor at Washington University in St. Louis estimates that the 35-day partial government shutdown cost seven times more than the $5.7 billion that President Donald Trump requested for a border wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Liberty Vittert, who is also an ambassador for the Royal Statistical Society, writes that estimates for the cost of the shutdown per day range from $52 million to $360 million.

More, via Fox News:

Standard & Poor’s has estimated that this shutdown will cost the American economy $6.5 billion per week – a figure they based on data from previous shutdowns. This estimate includes the reduction in spending by furloughed federal workers (though not their actual pay), as well as other trickle-down effects: lost business and revenue to private contractors, fewer vacations and school trips due to park closures, etc. That puts us at about $32 billion just for basic economic disruption.

[…]

Altogether, I estimate that the 35-day shutdown cost the American public somewhere around $40 billion. And that economic damage doesn’t include the unquantifiable damage being done to the 800,000 people who are going without a paycheck.

BOMBSHELL: FBI Admits Hillary’s Emails Were Found In Executive Office of Obama White House

WELL, WELL, WELL!

Bill Priestap, assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division, has admitted under oath that the FBI found Hillary Clinton’s emails in the Obama White House, specifically, in the Executive Office of the president. Yup. No joke. From Judicial Watch: Judicial Watch announced today that a senior FBI official admitted, in writing and under oath, that the agency found Clinton email records in the Obama White House, specifically, the Executive Office of the President. The FBI also admitted nearly 49,000 Clinton server emails were reviewed as result of a search warrant for her material on the laptop of Anthony Weiner. […] U.S District Court Judge Royce Lamberth ordered Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers, and Clinton aides, as well as Priestap, to be deposed or answer writer questions under oath. The court ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.” https://twitter.com/TomFitton/status/1120718496034324487?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1120718496034324487&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fjust-in-49000-of-hillary-clintons-email-discovered-obama-in-hot-water-given-where-they-were-at%2F Where’s the MSM on this one, huh? Too preoccupied with doing everything in their power to keeping the uninformed uninformed? Sounds about right. Why would anybody ask Hillary Clinton to give advice to 2020 Democrat presidential candidates on how to defeat Donald Trump? Where’s the logic? TOO FUNNY!

HERE WE GO: Supreme Court Signals Support For Trump’s Citizenship Census Question

This is a big one, folks!

John Salvatore

Published

It is looking more and more likely that the Supreme Court will allow the citizenship question to be added to the 2020 census. Democrats are likely to erupt, while conservatives will stand and clap. Here’s more information about what’s going down, from Bloomberg: Key U.S. Supreme Court justices seemed inclined to let the Trump administration add a question about citizenship to the 2020 census in a clash that will shape the allocation of congressional seats and federal dollars. In an 80-minute argument Tuesday that was both technical and combative, Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh directed almost all their questions to the lawyers challenging the decision to ask about citizenship. Kavanaugh said Congress gave the Commerce secretary “huge discretion” to decide what to ask on the census. Opponents say a citizenship question could result in a census undercount in areas with large non-citizen populations that could shift congressional districts and federal funds away from those communities. Far-left Justice Sonia Sotomayor noted, “There’s no doubt that people will respond less. That’s been proven in study after study.” Stay tuned… As most conservatives are well aware, Obamacare was unconstitutional from the start considering it originated in the Senate. Now, an appeals court has ruled in the Trump administration’s favor on a major issue. What this means is the Supreme Court may wind up ruling on the Redistribution of Wealth Act’s Affordable Care Act’s legality before the 2020 presidential election. In other words, it’s kind of a big deal. https://twitter.com/CNNPolitics/status/1116474275999956992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1116474275999956992&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-trump-just-put-the-lawsuit-against-obamacare-on-speed%2F One woman was rumored to be in the running for the SCOTUS seat that went to Brett Kavanaugh. As it stands, President Trump has nominated two judges to the Supreme Court, both of whom made it through the entire process – Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch. Now, if Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat…
