The Government Shutdown is Now Endangering Even MORE Americans

If the government shutdown continues much longer, the most dangerous thing in America will be a Caesar Salad at an airport. I’ll explain.

While the left and the right continued to bicker on Capitol Hill, these ruling class cretins seem oblivious to the plight of the nation at large.

Some 800,000 federal employees are currently being asked to work without pay, as the government looks determined to miss its next payroll deadline before any sort of deal has been struck.

The President is demanding a border wall, the left is refusing that order and ignoring their responsibility for the pickle we’re in.  Neither side seems to care much about We The People in all of this.

What’s worse is that this government shutdown is creating some serious risks for everyday Americans – and not only those who are being directly affected by the loss of income.

First, there were the stories of TSA agents calling out of work, presumably to find other jobs.  Now, many are quitting the TSA altogether.

Transportation Security Agency officers forced to work without knowing when their next paycheck is coming are no longer just calling in sick. Now, 18 days into the partial government shutdown, some are resigning, according to Hydrick Thomas, who heads the TSA Council on the American Federation of Government Employees.

“Every day I’m getting calls from my members about their extreme financial hardships and need for a paycheck. Some of them have already quit and many are considering quitting the federal workforce because of this shutdown,”  the official said in a statement posted to the union’s website on Tuesday. He did not specify how many had quit.

And that’s not even the most alarming shortcoming we’re facing, (as I do heartily believe that the TSA is practically useless but would never hold that against their employees).

The furloughing of hundreds of Food and Drug Administration inspectors has sharply reduced inspections of the nation’s food supply — one of many repercussions of the partial government shutdown that make Americans potentially less safe.

The agency, which oversees 80 percent of the food supply, has suspended all routine inspections of domestic food-processing facilities, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in an interview. He said he’s working on a plan to bring back inspectors as early as next week to resume inspections of high-risk facilities, which handle foods such as soft cheese or seafood, or have a history of problems.

“We are doing what we can to mitigate any risk to consumers through the shutdown,” Gottlieb said.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a nonprofit advocacy group, described the reductions as unacceptable.

“That puts our food supply at risk,” said Sarah Sorscher, deputy director of regulatory affairs at the group. “Regular inspections, which help stop foodborne illness before people get sick, are vital.”

After our recent E.coli scares here in the United States, any disruption to the FDA’s quality control protocols should be worrisome.

Nancy’s Lame Excuse for Trying to Cancel SOTU Gets ROASTED Online

We won’t hold our breath for this sort of brazen nonsense by Nancy Pelosi to get “fact checked” any time soon.

Nancy Pelosi

There is an increasingly petty war raging in Washington DC this week between liberal lawmakers and the President himself.

Trump is refusing to budge on his proposed border wall, while still continuing to maintain hope that the democrats will eventually return to the negotiating table.

On the other side of the conflict is Nancy Pelosi, whose demeanor has deteriorated over the course of the the last 48 hours.  Now, after her daughter gruesomely described the elder Pelosi’s toughness as likely to induce decapitation, it seem that Nancy has turned the sentiment metaphorical.

Instead of actually decapitating the President, (something we’ve already been forced to imagine thanks to Kathy Griffin), she’s going to cut the metaphorical head off of the metaphorical snake that she has anthropomorphized Trump as…at least for the sake of that long-winded anecdote.

In cowboy talk’; she’s going to head him off at the pass.

On Wednesday, Pelosi wrote to the president to rescind her Jan. 3 invitation for him to address Congress on January 29, in keeping with tradition.

Pelosi blamed a lack of available security due to the ongoing partial government shutdown: “This requires hundreds of people working on the logistics and security of it. Most of those people are either furloughed or victims of the shutdown. The president’s shutdown. But that isn’t the point. The point is security. … [It’s] a security decision which is completely out of my hands.”

The only problem with that excuse was, well…everything.

We won’t hold our breath for this sort of brazen nonsense by Nancy Pelosi to get “fact checked” any time soon.

‘That’s Appalling!’ CNN Hosts Lose It After Trump Jokes About ‘Salad’ (Video)

Classic CNN!

The White House recently hosted the national football champion Clemson Tigers.

President Trump personally threw down cash from his own pocket, but was resoundingly mocked by the MSM for providing a meal consisting entirely of fast food.

We’re talking McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s Domino’s, etc.

A little weird? Probably.

Look:

CNN took things a step further, though, after 45 made a joke about “salad” while speaking to the team…

Trump: “So I had a choice. Do we have no food for you? Because we have a shutdown, or do we give you some little quick salads that the first lady will make, along with — along with the second lady, they’ll make some salads.

Erin Burnett and Joan Walsh flipped out.

Walsh: “That’s appalling. It seems to me like the president will not be happy until there is not one single female Republican voter in the country. It’s incredibly sexist.

Burnett: “I’m not over-reading it. He made a joke that was sexist about women.

WATCH:

Classic CNN nonsense, huh?

Trump the misogynist! How dare he ask his stay-at-home wife to make salad!?

Of all things!

Facepalm.

CNN is a much funnier network than Comedy Central.

They know what makes the people laugh and they constantly deliver the goods.

What’s weird is how their ratings never surpass Fox News. Hmm.

Oh, well.

Check out the best, worst, and most hilarious moments from the communications wing of the Democrat party in one video supercut…

Now, check out the best of MSNBC…

From Daily Wire:

Each year, The Washington Free Beacon presents a roundup of MSNBC’s biggest failures or otherwise shoddy reporting and commentary.

WATCH:

Host Joy-Ann Reid agrees with guest Elie Mystal.

The way to “get” President Donald Trump is to go after his children.

ELIE MYSTAL: “Do you remember in ‘The Firm,’ how Tom Cruise brings down the entire mob on overbilling? In these reports, what we have is Ivanka Trump, as part of the Trump organization, overbilling the inaugural committee. That could be it right there. What we now have — this is the first time — look, we’ve talked a lot about Don Jr., we know now he was at the Trump Tower meeting, we talked a lot about Eric, because he seems to be Fredo.”

This is the first time that we have Ivanka—which is like the only kid he likes—in the crosshairs.She apparently, according to these reports, was involved with overcharging the inaugural committee, and somebody had to tell her: this is going to look bad when we get audited. For a long time I thought that the only way we are really going to get to Trump is if you go after his kids. If you put the kids in legal peril, that’s the only thing that’s going to shock him out of his lying, deceitful, cocoon. And this could be the way to do it.

JOY REID: “There is this finding that people — we’re going to talk about this later in the show — that you can’t indict a sitting President. But it doesn’t say anything about a sitting President’s daughter.

WATCH:

Over 60 million Americans voted for Donald Trump. Over 60 million Americans voted for Hillary Clinton.

Of course, the former first lady won the popular vote. However, the former businessman won the electoral vote.

One of those things matters more than the other and for good reason.

It is to prevent tyranny of the majority.

According to MSNBC, though, Trump wasn’t “democratically” elected.

MSNBC panelists have come to the astute conclusion that President Donald Trump wasn’t actually elected — at least not “democratically.”

During an off-the-rails segment Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Hardball” with host Chris Matthews, two separate panelists claimed that Trump’s hush money payments in 2016 to adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal “robbed the American people of their right to vote.”

Here’s what host Lawrence O’Donnell has to say about border patrol:

They destroy water bottles that are left in the desert by Samaritans that are doing what Donald Trump’s bible tells them to do.

WATCH:

The problem?

The video shown by O’Donnell is from 2011 and published in 2013.

Hmm.

Who was president during that time?
