government shutdown

While Washington DC lays gridlocked on the banks of the Potomac, many Americans have been left wondering just how impactful the current shutdown will be on them and their loved ones.

Most of the media will be focusing on the portions of the shutdown that can be expressed well on camera:  That is to say, they’ll be covering almost exclusively stories about the National Park Service.

Luckily, Breitbart has compiled a handy list of ways in which the average American could find themselves affected.

Government agencies that have not received funding include the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Interior Department, the State Department, the Agriculture Department, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), among other federal agencies.

Luckily, several essential agencies will continue to operate. 

Essential government services will continue, which include:

  • The U.S. Postal Service will remain open and deliver mail.

  • The Transporation Security Administration (TSA) will continue to provide security, especially for air travel.

  • The government will continue to provide Social Security checks.

  • Medicare and Medicaid coverage will continue.

  • Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation will continue.

  • Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents at America’s border and American troops at the border will continue securing the border.

  • The Smithsonian and the National Zoo will remain open through January, using prior-appropriated funds.

The longest government shutdown in modern history occurred during President Bill Clinton’s time in the Oval Office, lasting three weeks on the nose.

President Trump has vowed not to budge on his requirement of an allotment of funds for a border wall, indicating that he is prepared to remain steadfast for at least as long as Clinton did.

State Police Force Faces Mass Resignations Over Vaccine Mandate

That can’t be good…

Published

on

Americans these days appear to be more concerned than ever with their bodily sovereignty, and this could create an enormous shift in the way that some folks choose their careers.

In particular, the increase in vaccine mandates among certain professions has driven a number of American workers to seek new employment, including a number of healthcare workers in New York State.  In fact, the exodus in NYC could be so significant that the National Guard and foreign doctors may need to be brought in to fill the gap.

Meanwhile, in neighboring Massachusetts, it’s the police force that could soon be gutted.

The State Police Association of Massachusetts (SPAM) said dozens of troopers have submitted their resignation papers as a result of the state’s COVID vaccine mandate.

The state is requiring all executive department employees to show proof of vaccination by October 17, or risk losing their jobs.

The Union released a statement in which they suggested that these officers would seek employment in places with “reasonable” practices instead.

To date, dozens of troopers have already submitted their resignation paperwork, some of whom plan to return to other departments offering reasonable alternatives such as mask wearing and regular testing.  The State Police are already critically short staffed and acknowledged this by the unprecedented moves which took troopers from specialty units that investigate homicides, terrorism, computer crimes, arsons, gangs, narcotics, and human trafficking, and returned them to uniformed patrol.

The debate over vaccine mandates has been a heated one here in the United States, and with the federal government now solidly pushing for more of these regulations to go into place, there is no end in sight for the argument.

Chris Cuomo’s Groping Victim Eviscerates His Response to the Accusations

The creepy Cuomos are at it again.

Chris Cuomo

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is in a predicament that may feel familiar to his family this week, and his response to the issue is getting exactly the sort of eye-rolling write-off that his brother Andrew grew accustomed to during his final days as the disgraced Governor of New York.

Cuomo the newsman, like his lawmaker sibling, stands accused of an aggressive act of sexual harassment involving a woman with whom he worked.  And, also like Andrew, Chris’ response to the accusation is not going over well.

In a guest essay for the New York Times published Friday, former executive producer Shelley Ross wrote Cuomo squeezed the cheek of her buttock without her permission in 2005. She also produced an email where Cuomo appeared to admit to the incident and apologized for his behavior. Ross expected CNN’s most-watched host to have evolved since the incident occurred, but feels his response to her essay proves he’s “no more enlightened” today than he was at the time of the inappropriate touching.

“I was hoping that in 15, 16 years that he had changed, but he’s no more enlightened today than he was then, as demonstrated by his response,” Ross told Insider.

Here’s where the two differ:

“As Shelley acknowledges, our interaction was not sexual in nature. It happened 16 years ago in a public setting when she was a top executive at ABC. I apologized to her then, and I meant it,” Cuomo said.

However, Ross doesn’t seem satisfied with Cuomo’s statement.

“I don’t acknowledge that there’s anything that was ‘our interaction.’ I was not a participant,” Ross told Insider. “I was groped. And so to say that I acknowledge interaction, no. That shows a lack of enlightenment.”

Ross has publicly stated that she isn’t seeking to have Cuomo ousted from CNN over the incident, however.
