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.

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

Collusion in plain sight?

Is it possible that Democrats are so angry with a thriving economy and record-low unemployment numbers for minorities that they are willing to sabotage President Trump’s entire presidency? Where’s the logic? 2016 is done with – accept it and move on. Furthermore, the Mueller report revealed no evidence of collusion with the Russians. POTUS wants to see Americans do well, keep as much of their money as possible, and protect the borders. The fact that Dems are still colluding behind closed doors to destroy Trump is as low as it gets, but they don’t care – that’s the problem. Conservative Rep. Jim Jordan (OH) explains it best: It’s ironic that Dems continue to talk collusion when they’re the ones actually colluding! We learned that Dem Chairmen have secret Memos of Understanding to coordinate their partisan “investigations” on the President. https://twitter.com/Jim_Jordan/status/1118527735570280448?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1118527735570280448&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fbreaking-dem-reps-launch-secret-agreement-to-keep-hammering-trump-with-investigations%2F From Sara Carter: Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Elijah Cummings and Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters executed a secret Memorandum of Understanding to “target” President Trump and subpoena all his financial and banking records, according to a letter sent to Cummings from ranking committee member Rep. Jim Jordan. Further, Jordan’s letter indicates that other MOUs have apparently been signed and agreed to with House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Ca, who has promised to continue investigations into the president despite findings by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office that there was no conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia. Attorney General William Barr released a summary of Mueller’s 400 page report several weeks ago and the redacted version of the report is expected to be released by the DOJ this Thursday. […] Jordan emphatically objected to the secret MOUs and excoriated Democrats who “did not consult with Republican Members of the Committee or…

REPORT: Democrat Rashida Tlaib Meets With Terror-Affiliated, Anti-Israel Activist (Details)

WHAT IN THE WORLD!?

Here’s a story you probably thought, and hoped, you’d never have to read. And yet, here we are. A sitting member of Congress, freshman Democrat Rashida Tlaib (MI), recently met with an extreme anti-Israel activist who just so happens to be affiliated with terror. Good going, Michigan. Really smooth. From Daily Caller: Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib met with another extreme anti-Israel activist and terrorist-supporter in her Capitol Hill congressional office during American Muslims for Palestine Advocacy Day in mid-April. American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) hosted the annual advocacy and training event, which was open to all adults who “seek justice in Palestine.” Additional criteria for participation includes supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to punish Israel by economically depriving the country for its alleged mistreatment of Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip and West Bank. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) describes the BDS movement as “the most prominent effort to undermine Israel’s existence” and has further criticized AMP for promoting anti-Semitism under the guise of educating Americans. AMP hailed the ADL’s anti-Israel description of its organization. After her win, Rashida celebrated with the Palestinian flag. She noted, “A lot of my strength comes from being Palestinian.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/_SJPeace_/status/1027218505110827013?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1027218505110827013&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2018%2F11%2Fnewly-elected-muslim-congresswoman-rashida-tlaib-wore-palestinian-flag-at-primary-victory-celebration%2F New Cong. Rashida Tlaib said 4 US senators “forgot what country they represent.”She’s a proud Palestinian-American. Understood.But for someone wrapped in a Palestinian flag on Election Day to level such a charge is shocking.Debate policy on the merits, not baseless motives. pic.twitter.com/nRmHYAUBB5— David Harris (@DavidHarrisAJC) January 8, 2019 According to Tlaib, all Congressional Democrats are racist. No joke. She actually said that, revealing what conservatives have known to be true for decades. Did Tlaib mean to say it, though? IT SURE LOOKS THAT WAY. Here’s how it all started… A woman sent a tweet arguing that Democrats are…
