White House Softens $5B Demand from Dems for Border Wall

With only 3 days left to fund the government, the White House is looking to play nice.

Border Wall

With only a few scant days left to fund the government, the Trump administration has been at odds with congressional democrats over a predictable and longstanding sticking point.

Namely, President Trump “big, beautiful” wall for our southern border.

The wall itself has become a symbol of the Trump presidency in many ways, with the businessman storming onto the political scene by promising the American people that he would take border control seriously.  The soon-to-be President would rave about this national security issue during the televised debates, often to enthusiastic applause, signaling his coming win in November of 2016.

Today the wall has become the item on which the looming government shutdown could hinge.  Trump has stood steady and stern on the issue as of late, nearly eliciting glee when admitting that he’d not regret bringing DC to a halt in order to secure the border.

The White House, however, has seemingly backed off a bit…

The White House suggested Tuesday that President Donald Trump’s could back down from his demand for $5 billion to fund his proposed border wall in a year-end spending bill.

Trump’s push for the money has threatened a partial government shutdown when funding for seven agencies lapses after midnight Friday. Last week, the president said he would be “proud” to close parts of the government over border security.

“We have other ways that we can get to that $5 billion that we’ll work with Congress,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told Fox News on Tuesday morning. She added that the Trump administration could support $1.6 billion in border security funding proposed by Democrats, as long as it can “couple that with other funding resources” to get to $5 billion.

Then came the soundbite.

She added that “at the end of the day, we don’t want to shut down the government. We want to shut down the border.” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have cast the potential lapse in funding as the “Trump shutdown.” When Pelosi goaded Trump into an Oval Office fracas last week, the characterization appeared to irritate the president.

With a shutdown looming should no action be taken by Friday, time is certainly of the essence in the Beltway.

Democratic Senator Says We’re Headed Toward INDICTMENT of POTUS!

It may all come down to whether or not Mueller is looking to play by the rules or not.

Robert Mueller

There have certainly been a number of firsts within this still-young Trump administration.

It may or may not be the first time that we’ve served McDonald’s to a championship team.

And it is certainly the first time that a sitting President might be indicted.  At least according to one Senator from Rhode Island.

Never in thee history of our great nation has something like this been considered, and many on the left are clamoring for it.

Unfortunately for them, there is a longstanding belief in the Department of Justice that a sitting President cannot be indicted, however, he would be eligible to face the music once he leaves office.

According to Rudy Giuliani:

“The Justice Department memos going back to before Nixon say that you cannot indict a sitting president, you have to impeach him. Now there was a little time in which there was some dispute about that, but they acknowledged to us orally that they understand that they can’t violate the Justice Department rules.

“We think it’s bigger than that. We think it’s a constitutional rule, but I don’t think you’re ever going to confront that because nobody’s ever going to indict a sitting president. So, what does that leave them with? That leaves them with writing a report.”

But does that mean that Mueller would play by the rules?

I suppose the only way to find out is to see this out to its inevitable end, whether that be calm, collusion, or calamity.

RED-HANDED! Google’s Anti-Conservative Bias Revealed with SMOKING GUN

Google thought they were too big to get caught. They thought wrong.

Published

Google

For months, it has been readily apparent that Google, YouTube, and other mainstream media platforms were actively working to suppress the conservative beliefs of America.

This seemingly newfound animosity toward the right side of the aisle came only from the left’s intense hatred for President Donald Trump.  For what reason?  Seemingly because he was victorious over Hillary Clinton in November 2016, and for few other reasons at all.

With companies such as Google and YouTube, (Google’s video streaming platform), being novel in their gargantuan size, there are no set rules about just how these very public platforms can operate only as private entities, with no regard to Americans’ Constitutional right to free speech.

Now, however, we finally have something resembling a smoking gun in the case.

In sworn testimony, Google CEO Sundar Pichai told Congress last month that his company does not “manually intervene” on any particular search result. Yet an internal discussion thread leaked to Breitbart News reveals Google regularly intervenes in search results on its YouTube video platform – including a recent intervention that pushed pro-life videos out of the top ten search results for “abortion.”

The term “abortion” was added to a “blacklist” file for “controversial YouTube queries,” which contains a list of search terms that the company considers sensitive. According to the leak, these include some of these search terms related to: abortion, abortions, the Irish abortion referendum, Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters, and anti-gun activist David Hogg.

The existence of the blacklist was revealed in an internal Google discussion thread leaked to Breitbart News by a source inside the company who wishes to remain anonymous. A partial list of blacklisted terms was also leaked to Breitbart by another Google source.

President Trump has hinted in the past about taking a look at regulations regarding free speech on the internet.  Perhaps this will be the impetus to real action.
