Government Shutdown

Trump Announces Deal to End Government Shutdown

And it took only 35 days!

President Donald Trump today endorsed a continuing resolution that would end the partial government shutdown. The legislation does not provide any of the $5.7 billion the president had demanded for a wall on the U.S.–Mexico border. Instead it will reopen the government for three weeks, giving Trump and lawmakers time to negotiate a more permanent deal.

"We have reached a deal to end the shutdown and reopen the federal government," Trump said from the White House Rose Garden. He alluded to his ability to secure border wall funds by declaring a national emergency, but said he would prefer not to do so. Still, he suggested he might declare one if Congress does not allocate border wall money by February 15.

Trump's announcement comes on the 35th day of the partial shutdown. Roughly 800,000 federal workers have been either furloughed or working without pay. Capitol Hill sources tell The Daily Beast that reports of closed terminals at LaGuardia Airport—a result of an air traffic controller shortage—spurred lawmakers to start talking in earnest. The air traffic control issue was also a contributing factor in Trump deciding to end the shutdown, a White House official tells CNN's Jeff Zeleny.

Republicans and Democrats in Congress have been trying to reach a deal for weeks. Yesterday, the Senate voted on two proposals to end the shutdown, both of which failed. A Republican-backed plan would have funded the government and provided Trump with his border wall money. A Democrat-supported proposal would have funded the government for two weeks without allocating any money for the wall.

In the end, it was almost certainly going to come down to Trump. Before today, the president rejected any proposal that didn't include wall funding. Considering the slim chances that two-thirds of both the House and the Senate could come together to override a presidential veto, Trump was going to have the final say.

It's hard to see Trump's move as anything other than a fold. Trump had insisted on border wall funding, but for now at least he's not going to get it.

But that's a good thing. Trump's border wall is a bad idea for many reasons. (You can read about some of them here.) And as Reason's Eric Boehm noted yesterday, the shutdown has done nothing to actually reduce the federal government's power or cost. If anything, it's had devastating effects in areas the government shouldn't be involved in, such as air traffic control and beer-labeling.

Despite the deal, this saga is far from over. Lawmakers and Trump have yet to strike a permanent deal. It will be interesting to see how negotiations play out over the next three weeks, and whether Trump actually gets any money for the wall.

  1. He alluded to his ability to secure border wall funds by declaring a national emergency, but said he would prefer not to do so.

    Take your time. It’s not like there’s some serious situation or occurrence that happens unexpectedly and demands immediate action or a condition of urgent need for action or assistance.

  2. Someone has to fold.

    1. Nobody is folding shit. All the White House staff are on vacation.

      Mrs. Gump: “Vacation’s when you go somewhere… and you don’t ever come back.”

      1. And the GOP won the House, right?

        Looks like someone’s going to be trumpy grumpy.

        Make America Grumpy Again.

      2. Poor alphabet troll. He forgot that GOP members won the House.

        1. In case anyone was curious, this is what delusion looks like. Scroll down for even more examples.

        2. The tell when you’re backed into a corner of cognitive dissonance is when you start to narrate in third person.

      3. loveconstitution1789, you know I usually agree with you , but Trump folded.

        Who would fold first was always about who the public would believe was ultimately responsible for the shutdown. And with the sheer amount of media firepower that the DNC owns, everyone knew it would be tough for Trump from the start.

        1. Or the fact that he credited himself before it even happened. Trump got outsmarted by possibly the dumbest lady in Washington except for AOC.

          1. Pe-Lousy is many things & most ain’t pretty, but she ain’t dumb & neither is Trump:

            (1) He gets to give his SOTU & make his case again
            (2) Negotiations will begin again
            (3) If there is no deal in February, more of a chance The Demon-Crats will be blamed!

        2. Trump definitely did give in.

          Funny that nobody wants to ask why. The Lefties just assume he’s a pussy or dumb.

          They make that mistake all the time since 2016.

          Why would Trump force a government shutdown for 35 days (The longest in history) and then give federal bureaucrats 3 more weeks before the next deadline?

          I can assure you that when his “100% random actions” are revealed, the Lefties will fucking hate it.

          1. lovestatism1789 … follows Trump down the Memory Hole!

            On this page for two days

            Trump got 5.7 billion for his border wall (twice)
            Trump did not cave. (4 times)
            Trump did not give in (5 times)

            After two days of ridicule and horse laughs, CAVES!

            Trump definitely did give in.
            The Lefties just assume he’s a pussy or dumb.
            I can assure you that when his “100% random actions” are revealed, the Lefties will fucking hate it.

            I can assure YOU he’ll flip AGAIN.
            And again, and again …
            The pussy (snort)

      4. LC1789 told us that Trump got his border wall.
        Now he says Trump didn’t fold.

        Give him a week or so and he;ll admit what year this is.
        If Trump allows him to,

        1. Poor Hihn.

          1. I can assure you that when his “100% random actions” are revealed, the Lefties will fucking hate it.

          2. lovestatism1789 AGAIN sneers that Trump did NOT cave .. and DID get $5.7 billion for his wall.
            YOUR CHOICE: Proof or Sneering Jackals? (smirk)

            Ann Coulter says lc1789 is nuts.
            Rush Limbaugh says lc1789 is nuts
            Tucker Carlson says lc1789 is nuts
            Michelle Malkin says LC1789is nuts

            FOX NEWS REPORTS TRUMP’S TOTAL “CAVE” — Trumptards in desperation panic mode
            “President Trump said Friday that he will support a short-term spending bill to re-open the government, temporarily ending the partial government shutdown that has dragged on for more than a month — despite a day earlier saying Republicans would not “cave” on his demands for funding for a wall on the southern border.

            Poll: Only 7% of Voters Back Wall Funding to End Shutdown

            69% of Americans Don’t Think Trump’s Border Wall Is a Priority

            Manipulated-Pussies-for-Trump be humiliated again.

    2. When you’re betting with other people’s money, you never have to fold.

      1. He didn’t HAVE to fold … but he did anyhow?
        DAMN. I’ve been underestimating Nancy

    3. Already collapsed

      1. Just like the Democratic Party.

        1. (smirk

          Pelosi, Well, Manhandles Trump With Two Tools, a Feather and a Sledgehammer
          She said more than once that she is respectful of the office Trump holds, ‘perhaps more respectful than he is.’

          NOW is when we learn what Pelosi really is. It was reasonable to wonder if she’s just another Trump on a power-ego trip.

          Will she negotiate this ?. For all those Dreamers?
          Or is she a bully, like Trump. “My way or the highway?”

          The real, Art of the Deal is a win-win. NOBODY agrees to lose, DUH, and only a spoiled-brat bully would think otherwise. (which is WHY he keeps failing at it)

          NOW is her time to give TRUMP a win.

          “Mr. President, I will personally sponsor $7 billion for a wall, if you support permanent legal status for Dreamers.”

          (Let each Dreamer earn their own citizenship)

          If she pulls this off, SHE will be the best Democrat candidate for 2020. (I doubt she’d want it)
          She’s not the progressive wing, not a wuss like Hillary, and not thug like Trump.

          If she offers and he refuses ? going public will guarantee a Senate impeachment conviction.

  3. Looks to me like this is all about the State of the Union — not a wall

    1. Partly–Trump appears to have admitted as much when he announced that the State of the Union speech will take place quickly (make SOTU letters to Congress great again).

      The three week period also allows the government employees to sign their next two timesheets, which will get them their back pay and two full paychecks, before we go through this all over again.

      1. Watch – when they get their first paycheck along with their back pay, their FICA deduction will spike, causing outrage in the media.

        (it spikes because for that paycheck, it will appear that their annual salary has doubled, driving them into a higher bracket)

        1. ^this. Nice catch.

        2. Incorrect. Employee portion of FICA deduction is 6.2% up to $132,900. As a percentage (and regressive) tax it doesn’t “spike”. If you mean Federal or income taxes – they aren’t likely to spike either since the payroll check gross will cover a longer period of time, yielding the same annual gross when annualized and therefore no change in tax bracket.

      2. Trump appears to have admitted as much when he announced that the State of the Union speech will take place quickly

        NOT his decision. Pelosi wuill keep smashing him in the balls until he honors the Constitution, his Oath of Office and … thee co-equal branches.

        She’s already begun.

        You’re welcome.

        1. Dumbfuck Hihnsano drops in with his 100th sockpuppet.

          1. Readers here do NOT need you telling them how and what to think or conclude..
            Nor do readers anywhere on earth want you punishing Politically Incorrect speech

            Once again, you lost on the issue, FAIL to rebut it, so you assault the messenger — who beat you — just as Trump did when publicly humiliated by Pelosi.

            Who appointed you to control who may post facts and truths? Or what you allow them to say? Your ilk has been burning books and censoring speech/movies/television for centuries, even to burning witches.

            Libertarian individuals, publications and websites exist to REJECT your ilk … reducing your tiny minority to whining like pussies in online forums, bellowing at your computers, in a society that reviles you.

            Booga Booga

            1. Poor Hihn the troll.

              1. Does the goober know HE just acted like a troll?
                bwaaaaaaaaaaaa haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa haaaaaaaaaaaaa

    2. They are both about the same thing, person actually.

  4. YAY, THE PAUSE IN PAPERWORK FILING HAS BEEN PUT BACK ON ‘PLAY’.

  5. Trump’s new nickname is about to become The Caveman.

    1. We’ll see. There’s nothing to say he won’t cut the 3-week pause on the shutdown 20 days short.

      Not saying he will or he won’t, just that the sort of ‘Read my lips’ moves that would’ve crushed other Presidents don’t always seem to stick and sometimes seem other-dimensional when applied to Trump.

      1. There’s nothing to say he won’t cut the 3-week pause on the shutdown 20 days short.

        Lol, that’s not how any of this works.

        1. Lol, that’s not how any of this works.

          Like you fucking know. He, sure as shit, can pick up his pen and phone and furlough a shitload of employees halfway through the pause on the partial shutdown.

          My point wasn’t that “I know that this is what will happen.” as much as, from the start Trump has, for both better and worse, defied expectations.

    2. Trump got more border security funding and a 3 week period to fire federal employees.

      What did Pelosi get? Oh yeah, Trump okayed Congress to re-open the federal government for 3 weeks.

      Trump says jump and Pelosi says “how high, Mr. Trump”?

      Trump got more than $5.7 billion for border security. Haha. That border security is going to help keep illegals out.

      1. Trump got more than $5.7 billion for border security. Haha. That border security is going to help keep illegals out.

        Trump and lc1789 ..;. both TOTALLY humiliated within hours!!!

          1. It’s Dumbfuck Hihnsano, so that goes without saying.

          2. I’m not convinced that Hihn and LC aren’t the same person. 9th dimensional trolling.

            1. Being relatively new here, who is this Hihn anyway? I’m pretty certain I had an exchange with the poster above (albeit under a different name) and endured shrieking pointless imbecility. He doesn’t even seem to have a point of view – if maximized abrasive stupid alone doesn’t count.

            2. Poor troll Myshkin78 helping Hihn troll.

          3. Apparently, it is Politically Incorrect to PROVE that Trump got NO money for border security … in the midst of Trumptards celebrating Ttrump’s triumphant funding of “over $5.7 billion”.

            My anti-PC PROOF has “triggered” several precious snowflakes into severe blind rage … because I DARED to post a link and report from the neverTrumpers at …. Fox News

            Count ’em. Count how many goobers stand with loveconstituion1789’s DUMBASS incorrect claim that

            They’ll soon describe, breathlessly, Trump’s wall actually being built … sneering at “neverTrumpers” who peddle FAKE NEWS …. now Fox!

            The same arrogance that Pelosi triumphed over.

            (Posted in self-defense of aggression and unprovoked assaults.)

            1. Dumbfuck Hihnsano bitchfitting like crazy, thinks because he can’t post without a dozen sockpuppets that no one else can, either.

              1. Another COWARDLY diversion by RED ROCKS WHITE SUPREMACIST (snort)

                Trump throws a TWEET storms to bury the truth. Trumptards throw POST storms to bury the upthread PROOF.

                Don’t scroll back. THIS is what triggered the Politically Coerect Trumptards, starting with starting with lc1789’s crazed bullshit: “Trump got more than $5.7 billion for border security. Haha.”

                Does any ADULT need this proof?

        2. The Hihnfaggot has returned.

  6. Libertarian bowel movement

    1. Who did we shit on this time?

  7. Let’s keep it simple: Is Trump’s latest offer a fair one?

    I’m hearing Kushner is working on an even bigger comprehensive immigration reform package.

      1. Noice!

      2. Lol.

      3. I’ll stick with Genesis.

    1. Like Kushner’s Mideast peace plan. I think they give him these projects the way you hand a box of crayons to a six year old and say “draw me a whale” when you need to keep them busy for a while.

  8. After the 3 weeks, Trump will go for another 35 day shutdown.

    haha

    1. The federal employees need to come back to work to sign their termination paperwork.

      1. But who will arrest the marijuana smokers?

        Keep this in mind about marijuana

        Joe Biden coined the term ‘Drug Czar’ after watching Reefer Madness. According to Biden, the movie set him on a path to have the government warn the nation’s youth about the dangerous marijuana.

        Biden is in constant contact with past and present Drug Czars, and they say that the current marijuana is much more powerful that the hippie weed. So much so, that it’s now considered by them to be not only highly addictive but a gateway drug to LSD.

        Unnamed sources say Biden was maneuvered to be Obama’s Vice President so Biden could keep an eye on him. There was a feeling that Obama would start to smoking marijuana again, even though he swore he was off the stuff. So Biden was there to make sure Obama behaved and did not reclassify marijuana.

        1. Your message is that Joe Biden is roughly as bad as the average Republican on marijuana-related authoritarianism and backwardness.

          No wonder the libs have ceded the culture war to the right-wingers.

    2. Here we see a poor old man who’s lost in the land of delusion.

      1. Because when Trump announces something you can bank on it?

        1. Yeah, you’re right. The 1000x more likely case is that he held the rose garden press conference to tell Mitch to get the deal written up and voted on. Then, once it’s been passed and sent to Donald for his signature, he’s going to pull out his big stamp, slam it down on the paper and shout “BAM! VETO BITCHES!” Then, for good measure, he’ll jump up on his desk, pull his pants down, and take a giant shit on it.

          1. Have you seen the deal? Do you know what was discussed? Has Mitch and the Senate not fucked up other ‘done deals’ in the past? Has President Trump not vetoed ‘done deals’ at the last minute?

            Jesus, for two years the man and the party have been lambasted for their consistent ability to fuck shit up but, suddenly, now that the trains will start running on time again, the only possible way the TOP MEN could fuck up now is if they literally dropped trow and took a shit on it?

            1. Yep. He consistently fucks things up. Except when he doesn’t. And he always lies. Except when he doesn’t. And we should never take him seriously. Except when we should.

              1. Yeah, Hillary is a liar, fucker up of things, and should not be taken seriously.

          2. Sounds like a Saturday night for SparkY.

      2. Poor SparkY had to change his handle and cannot remember that this shutdown is all Trump’s fault.

        Why wouldn’t Trump do another shutdown?

        1. Because … Fold me once, shame on you. Fold me twice, shame on me.

          1. We won’t get folded again.

            1. I’d like to fold ya son but yer too young to vote.

        2. Fold me trice and you get Origami.

  9. “Trump’s border wall is a bad idea for many reasons”

    Not really. If border walls were ineffective than we wouldn’t have put several in under multiple administrations from the 90’s forward.

    Pro-open “southern” border is not being pro-open borders, by the way. You can have opinions without just latching on to whatever the progressive position is. Why not try writing about the arduous visa system? The system by which over 90% of all immigrants come in through.

    1. Not really. If border walls were ineffective than we wouldn’t have put several in under multiple administrations from the 90’s forward.

      Why do you think listing one reason you don’t think is good refutes the claim that there are many good reasons?

      1. I honestly don’t understand your question

    2. 42% of illegal immigrants in the US are people who over-stayed their visas. I realize that doesn’t refute what you wrote, just saying.

    3. Why not try writing about the arduous visa system?

      Which they have.

      1. He means recently.

        Reason only writes about open borders and Trump-bad recently.

        When I say “write” I am being generous because its actually propaganda.

    4. Not really. If border walls were ineffective than we wouldn’t have put several in under multiple administrations from the 90’s forward.

      You know that’s not true. “If they were ineffective, the government wouldn’t have done it before” is nonsense. It’s a worthwhile comment for the implications about our current state of hysteria about a wall, but it says nothing about it’s efficacy.

      1. True. Good point.

    5. If border walls were ineffective than we wouldn’t have put several in under multiple administrations from the 90’s forward

      If government-run schools were ineffective then we wouldn’t have poured billions of dollars under multiple administrations into government-run schools

      1. Sorry, BUCS beat me to making the point.

  10. “Capitol Hill sources tell The Daily Beast that reports of closed terminals at LaGuardia Airport?a result of an air traffic controller shortage…”

    And anyone seeing this as anything but political grandstanding just is not paying attention. I do not know the absentee rate at the nation’s busiest airport, Atlanta-Hartsfield, but I find it amazing that there were no canceled flights here. So either the “closed terminals” at LaGuardia was a political stunt, or employees in NY are a lot more pathetic and useless than the workers in GA.

    1. FAA Airport Status

      Atlanta-Hartsfield was red this AM from staffing problems.

      1. Government workers dont get paid- security lines flow fairly normally.

        Government workers get back pay approval- security lines backed up.

          At all of 32 airports!! (gasp)

          Where were these SHAMEFUL PUPPETS when DOD needed funds from a PRIVATE CHARITY … to bury five fallen heroes?

          Death Benefits Denied to Families of Fallen Troops (Military Times)
          The families of four soldiers and one Marine killed in Afghanistan over the weekend have been told that they will be denied death benefits while the government shutdown continues, leaving at least one mother in despair and disbelief.

          The families will also be denied travel re-imbursement should they choose to go to Dover Air Force Base, Del., for the solemn return of the caskets of their loved ones, Pentagon officials said Tuesday.

          UPDATE: The Pentagon partnered with the Fisher House Foundation to resume the benefits, including a $100,000 death gratuity payment.

          THE PENTAGON WAS FORCED — BY TRUMP — TO THE GET DOLLARS FROM A PRIVATE CHARITY
          AS TRUMPARDS SNEER (at five dead heroes)

          Will they EVER grow any balls?
          Or will they remain obedient Pussies For Trump

  11. It’s hard to see Trump’s move as anything other than a fold.

    Ann Coulter will certainly think so. And for that, the whipping sessions will be extra hard tonight, DT (or as she calls him, “You Pathetic Filth”)

    “And this is for not getting me the wall to keep all those odious brown folks out!” yells a black leather-clad Ann showing all kinds of hip bone and sternum.

    Whap! Whap!

    “Oh yes! Give it to me again, Ann! I’ve been a bad, bad boy! Ow! Hey, I can still shut down the goverment again! Ow! Ooowweee!”

    (I hope you guys don’t try to gouge your eyes out in an effort to unsee that scene because it won’t work.)

    1. “Ann showing all kinds of hip bone and sternum”

      As long as she keeps her Ingraham Angle covered I’m cool.

    2. Mr. Coulter just said she thinks Trump is a wimpier president than H.W. Bush.

      What a pickle, considering we elected her as our first transgender emperor.

      Oh, she’s neither trans nor our emperor nor elected? Oh, well I guess anyone listening to her must be a fucking idiot,

      1. Only you come here with real world info about AC. I wouldn’t know what she had to say about it if not for you. You know why? Don’t give a fuck what AC thinks. I came to mock and ridicule Donald and Ann and you fucking ruined it by waving your dick. thxalot.

        1. You are most certainly welcome. I don’t mean to toot my own dick, but it’s a pretty nice dick, huh?

          1. As I am unable to be impartial, I recuse myself.

          2. Tony always has poo on his little Vienna Sausage that he calls his dick.

    3. (I hope you guys don’t try to gouge your eyes out in an effort to unsee that scene because it won’t work.)

      There’s something so perfectly ironic about an Old Mexican trying to step into SugarFree’s shoes under Trump’s watch and failing at it.

  12. Don’t fuck with Nancy Pelosi. I could have told you that, but I didn’t want to.

    1. Don’t fuck with Nancy Pelosi

      Probably sound advice. As George Carlin once said, “I wouldn’t fuck her with a stolen dick!”

      1. Watch out! Those goddam dust bunnies bite!

      2. Considering she’s almost 80 years old, probably a good idea.

        I am befuddled by the conservative requirement that even elderly women be fuckable before you take them seriously. Or not take them seriously. Whatever.

        1. Nobody is taking Pelosi serious.

          1. Perhaps she is suffering from dementia and other old-age-related ailments and can barely function. She still beat Trump.

            1. Who pelosi?

              She is going to give Trump 3 times what he asked for in border security funds.

              Pelosi got 3 weeks of federal workers issuing IRS refunds.

              So in 3 weeks, when Trump shuts the federal government down again, most Americans will have their IRS refunds and the military will be funded.

              Maybe go for a 4 week shutdown? Haha

              1. You must have missed the part when Nancy Pelosi slapped Trump in the face with a big black dildo.

                1. I feel bad for you Tony. You don’t even see what’s coming.

                  Trump gave federal bureaucrats 3 more weeks when he didn’t have to politically.

                  In the end, I won’t even tell you “I told you so” when Pelosi asks Trump to pull his yuge cock out of her mouth because she cannot fit his cock and her shoe at the same time.

                  1. “lovestatism1789 is the manipulated pussy of a CAVED President.”
                    – Fox News

                    FOX NEWS REPORTS TRUMP’S TOTAL “CAVE” — Trumptards in desperation panic mode
                    “President Trump said Friday that he will support a short-term spending bill to re-open the government, temporarily ending the partial government shutdown that has dragged on for more than a month — despite a day earlier saying Republicans would not “cave” on his demands for funding for a wall on the southern border.

        2. Commenting on the physical attractiveness of people is bipartisan. Nothing special about it. There’s a whole minor subculture around saying Ted Cruz looks like a serial killer.

          1. Mr. Haney was a serial killer? I missed that episode.

          2. It’s just that nobody would be surprised if he turned out to be a serial killer.

            1. And there is a tremendous focus on him looking sleazy, and looking like a serial killer. And feeling like a serial killer. It’s all the same shit as the nonsense here commenting on Pelosi’s fuckability.

              1. I don’t know what a serial killer looks like. I know what a fuckable female looks like, and she is nowhere near 80, unless you have an open mind about such things. I also know what a smarmy unlikable nerd rat boy looks like, and I think that’s a universal and bipartisan assessment of Sen. Cruz.

                1. What point are you even trying to make anymore. You agree? Or that it’s a worthwhile criticism if a lot of people say they look ugly in some way? Or that you need bipartisan support for Pelosi being not sexually attractive? It just seems like you’re swinging out without commenting on my original point.

                  1. I think it’s sick and sad that Republicunts even bother considering whether grandmothers are worth fucking, be they a Clinton or a Pelosi, when assessing their merit as politicians. It’s demented. It’s not something normal people do.

                    I do so hate explaining the obvious.

                    1. I think it’s sick and sad that Republicunts even bother considering whether grandmothers are worth fucking

                      You’re the one who brought it up, you big dork. And watch out who you’re calling a Republican.

                    2. Sure, it’s bad. But I’m saying it’s not uniquely Republican, or even uniquely political, to comment on people’s physical appearance. I did this mentioning Ted Cruz constantly being insulted for his appearance. Your response was to agree that his appearance is of a serial killer.

                      If you want, I can put a finer point on it and compare it to the consistent barrage that Ann Coulter takes for being unattractive. Unless you’re going to continue to be obtuse and say “she’s not a grandmother so it’s okay.”

                      And it’s not explaining the obvious to repeat your original point, one I already agreed to. That’s just either misunderstanding or willfully ignoring the topic of discussion.

                    3. There’s another factor here as well. This site obviously attracts a lot of Libertarians, and a substantial subset of that group is addicted to a kind of toxic Bro Culture. They pride themselves on being stupidly crude, stupidly vicious, and stupidly sexist. “Stupid” – apparently – is the password which gets’em in the clubhouse door.

                    4. And yerpt your intellect is still inferior. It doesn’t speak well of you.

                2. Tony does not realize that if you cannot recognize the serial killer in the room….YOU are the serial killer.

    2. Pelosi does wear underwear with dick holes in them.

      1. The easier to slap Republicans in the face with her dick.

        1. She does have a dick. Hahaha.

  13. Total, absolute. crushing defeat … MERE HOURS AFTER WE LEARNED HE HAD DISGRACED OUR FALLEN TROOPS,.

    “Republican billionaire Sheldon Adelson offered to pay for the death benefits to military families in the wake of the government shutdown, but his offer was denied. (FOX, not MSNBC) (Would pay all funerals and planes to fly them home)
    http://bit.ly/2MwJRA0

    Death Benefits Denied to Families of Fallen Troops (Military Times) http://bit.ly/2sLMNzx
    The families of four soldiers and one Marine killed in Afghanistan over the weekend have been told that they will be denied death benefits while the government shutdown continues, leaving at least one mother in despair and disbelief.

    The families will also be denied travel re-imbursement should they choose to go to Dover Air Force Base, Del., for the solemn return of the caskets of their loved ones, Pentagon officials said Tuesday.

    UPDATE: The U.S. Defense Department has restored death benefits to families of troops killed in Afghanistan after the payments were suspended because of the government shutdown. The Pentagon partnered with the Fisher House Foundation to resume the benefits, including a $100,000 death gratuity payment.

    THE PENTAGON WAS FORCED — BY TRUMP — TO THE GET DOLLARS FROM A PRIVATE FUCKING CHARITY

    NOW will Trumpsters grow some BALLS

    1. That’s weird. The DoD was being funded during this.

      1. Probably comes out of the VA budget.

      2. When is this from?

        There’s a link to an update in your second link (here) that mentions Obama. Is the first one also from the 2015 shutdown? I wish those articles had dates on them. They have a copyright, but that seems to be the general one for the entire site.

        1. Oh, the first one also has a data and it’s from 2013. The Fox News one.

          1. Thanks. I needed somebody else to point out the shameful moral hypocrisy at Fox.
            I could not do it with paste-ins, and for even people who did not click the link
            Thanks again.

            1. What is the moral hypocrisy here?

              1. How did they report the same thing under Trump?

                RESULTS of a search for “Fox News military death benefits 2019” (no quotes)

                Anything else?

                1. But is it true under Trump? The two links you provided were from an event that happened 6 years ago.

                  1. So, here, I found one mention at all of this happening (Also, your link was broken, but I appreciate that you used Bing):

                    And it is a Fox affiliate. The weirdest thing is it seems to be Coast Guard specific as I guess they’re not funded under the DoD. Best I can take from it.

                  2. Why are you helping Hihn?

    2. Dumbfuck Hihnsano’s back with another sockpuppet.

      1. Definition: FUCKED UP PRIORITIES:
        “Dumbfuck Hihnsano’s back with another sockpuppet.”

        Way to FUCK our dead troops, conservatard

        1. It is not the dead troops that we should with because their fate is already sealed but we should be concerned for the live and serving troops, the survivors of the KIA and wounded and the veterans.

          1. That was shameful. Disgusting. Trumpian

            1. Hihn is an argument for involuntary civil commitment.

        2. Dumbfuck Hihnsano’s confused as to why his blatantly obvious sockpuppets are so easy to spot.

        3. Fuck off Hihn.

    3. Didn’t Trump have a private charity?

      Oh right, the courts made them shut down because it was a scam.

      1. Something like the Clinton’s?

        1. Nope. You lose again.
          Mind control can be embarrassing.

  14. And lo! there was much gloating.

  15. “You are fantastic people,” he said. “You are incredible patriots. Many of you have suffered far greater than anyone that your families would know or understand.”
    -President Trump announced a short-term deal to reopen the government for three weeks, ending the longest government shutdown in U.S. history.The New York Times

    To quote the NeverTrumpers, “Trump lies”.

    1. if the democrats provide funding for the border barriers (wall) there will not be another shutdown in February. If they don’t then there will be another shutdown and the DEMOCRATS will be the cause. In addition come September if congress tries to fund government with another CR for then new year I hope that the President does NOT sign the CR. CR are no way to fund the government as has been done many times during the last decade and longer.

      1. Dumbfuck Hihnsano links to his own stupidity again.

  16. Trump should shave his head for the sotu speech. Wear a fake goatie and a pork pie Break bad on that joint session. Tell them The Wall has been built by volunteers and close with “I am the one who knocks!”

  17. Straw bans, sure why not?
    40 billion dollar crazy train to nowhere? sounds good!
    Trillions in entitlements? Get out the rubberstamp.
    5 billion for a wall? OH MY GAWD, WHAT AN UNTHINKABLE UNPRECEDENTED CONCEPT. EVEN UTTERING THE NAME MAY DOOM THIS WORLD. GLAD WE DODGED THAT BULLET.

  18. “Many of you have suffered far greater than anyone that your families would know or understand.”

    Someone needs to develop a google translator for Trumpese.

  19. wtf? *pork pie hat made of squirrels* is what I meant.

    1. Squirrel meat is called squirrel, conveniently.

        1. One wants to eat pie, not wear it on one’s head, no?

          1. nobody wants to eat squirrel pie either

            1. apparently Tony does

              1. ‘Squirrel’. Is the nickname for the twelve year old Boy Scout who lives across the street from Tony.

  20. THE greatest political takedown since Ford Theater Sen. Michael Bennet, floor of the Senate
    Highlights.

    In 2013, under Obama, BIPARTISAN border security, 68 votes … $48 billion …350 miles of wall .. drones for every mile of border … REFUSED BY THE GOP HOUSE under the Hastert Rule, named for a Republican IN PRISON (Said House Speaker humiliated) Ted Cruz voted NAY

    While our government is shut down … over a BROKEN PROMISE by the President … China has made the first landing on the dark side of the moon. MAKE CHINA GREAT FINALLY

    Odama builds walls, gets $48 billion for border security. Trump shames our fallen heroes.

    OBAMA WALL: 350 miles, $48 billion total
    TRUMP WALL: 0 , walked away from TWO deals, one with $25 billion, now groveling at Pelosi’s freet for $5.7 B

    Caught in a death spiral between two GURLS — Coulter OR Pelosi — cannot avoid their wrath of one, whatever.
    Everyone on the planet knows Coulter shamed him into breaking a deal he’d agreed to.

    Take hope. Can Trump finally SELF-inaugurate into a REAL President?

    1. There is no dark side of the moon. It’s all dark…

      1. HYSTERICAL satire.
        78.3% of Trumptards will swallow it!!

        1. Fuck off Hihn, you ban-evading piece of shit.

        2. It’s literally true; the moon is tidally locked to earth – there is a consistent ‘near’ side and ‘far’ side, but every 14 days, the light and dark sides switch.

          Saying the Chinese landed on the dark side is the same as saying they landed on the moon at night.

      2. fuckin’ red eclipse was sweet

      3. Dorothy on the fence…balanced on the biggest wave…

        What? Nothing I’m fine, just some sort of flashback or something.

  21. For at least President Trump has been asking the democrats to “negotiate” border security to no avail even with offering several different starting places for the negotiations. Now we will see if the democrats were interested in the public employees and border security or in just stopping President Trump. As President Trump has already informed the world and the democrats with “negotiated” border security the money will run out and the government will be in the same condition. The President already indicated a willingness to compromise so if it comes to another government shutdown it will be fully on the democrats.

    1. For my lifetime I’ve heard The only Reps that Dems like is the Rep who pays for Dem campaign promises

      Apparently the reverse holds true now as well. If the Mexicans won’t pay for Trump’s wall, then the Dems should.

  22. Mistake Trump oh well it was fun while it lasted

    1. It aint over.

      Trump got 3 times what he wanted in border security money, IRS will issue tax refunds, and this will all start again within 3 weeks.

      1. *Pats you on the head. Gives your twitching body a shot of vodka*

      2. Trump got 3 times what he wanted in border security money,

        He got NOTHING, Trumptard. Even FOX says he CAVED

        1. Fuck off Hihn.

  23. ….And so President Donald Trump joins President George HW Bush on the side of Pit Schmuckmore, amongst the ranks of Republicans who caved to Democrat demands.

    We’d ask him for his opinion, but who really cares anymore. Unlike Nick Sandmann, Trump gave in to the enemy.

    Woe to the Republic.

    1. Looks like violence is the only option now

      1. You don’t know what you are wishing for you fucking imbecile. Think before you post

        1. Fuck off.

          A government that cannot or will not secure and defend its borders invalidates its claim to a monopoly on the legitimate use of force.

          I’m willing to listen to better alternatives that are more likely to stave off conquest of the US by the forces of global socialism if you can provide any.

          If not, shut the fuck up.

  24. >>>Roughly 800,000 federal workers have been either furloughed or working without pay.

    other than their incessant bitching about it wouldn’t have noticed

    1. BREAKING NEWS: Dillinger joins Trump in defending slave labor … complains the slaves are bitching
      NEVER ask Dillinger if the Jews “bitched” at Auschwitz.

      1. dude. what? also Auschwitz is always inappropriate.

  25. For all eternity and beyond, the Marxist Dems will not fund one inch of a southern border wall. In 3 weeks, we will be back to square one. Heavens to Betsy, the stupid government can’t even figure out how to efficiently handle immigration, using the numerous laws already in place, and we expect them to handle more complicated problems?

    1. (lol)
      “Marxist Dems” passed a bipartisan bill in a Democrat Senate with 68 votes, with $48 billion for border security, which included a 350 mile wall, drones to surveil most of the border and doubling the at-border agents. It never got a vote the Republican House because of the Hastert Rule, named after a Republican in prison.

      That was 2013, The President was a Kenyan named Obama.

      Trump has negotiated TWO bills for border security — one with $25 billion for a wall — but BROKE his word on both, and is now groveling at the feet of Nancy Pelosi for less than 1l.4 the dollars he walked away from, as he was ordered to by the right-wing media.

      Don’t even try to humiliate yourself by denying one the year’s most-reported stories — how Ann Coulter badgered him into breaking his word on an border security bill.

      But DO ask yourself how he was publicly humiliated … four times in the past month .. all by GURLS.

      Obama built wall, passed laws to secure our border, while Trump mostly bellows (and loses)

      1. Fuck off Hihn, you ban-evading piece of shit.

  26. Some shut down raise constitutional issues; some do not. This shut down was not constitutional since Trump was trying to force Congress to pass legislation which Congress did not want to pass. As the executive, the President has many legit powers but invading the legislative realm is not one of them,

    The President may veto bill which contains things he does not like, which is not the same thing are trying to compel Congress to pass a bill Congress does not want to pass.

    The Congressional GOP, however, abdicated their constitutional role by not restraining and rebuking Trump by passing the resolution to open the government without the Wall by a veto proof majority. The same will be true if a Dem President tries to force a GOP Congress to pass legislation it does not want to pass by closing down all or part of the government. The procedures by which the Republic operates should never be held hostage to partisan politics as Trump has done.

    1. Wow. That’s the best explanation of why 71% of Americans oppose shutting the government to force the funding.
      He’s a bully. That’s all he’s got. The Art of the Squeal.

      1. You got that right!
        https://youtu.be/9gLN3QoN-q8

      2. Poor Hihn.

        1. MORE PROOF: lovestatism1789 = losertarian … PROOF or SNEERS, your choice.

          Poll: Only 7% of Voters Back Wall Funding to End Shutdown

          69% of Americans Don’t Think Trump’s Border Wall Is a Priority

          Manipulated-Pussies-for-Trump be humiliated again.

          (smirk)

    2. RickAbrams, you’re a fucking moron.
      Trump has every right to advocate for policy that he, and his supporters, desires. He has every right to voice his intention to veto any bill that excludes his policy goal. Congress can either override a veto or come up with a bill that won’t be vetoed.
      It’s called politics, bitch.

      1. Thank Fuck! Someone who’s seeing this shit show for what it is.
        People here really don’t think long term. You DO NOT want this precedent to be set. A shut down SHOULDN’T be thing that the President can do to get his ways. Trump’s OWN PARTY was in power for 2 YEARS and they didn’t fund his wall. Now the man is willing to fucking kneecap the US economy for personal reasons. This is effectively one man and a minority in his own party holding people hostage over a promise for electoral purposes.
        Jesus fucking Christ some people here are so high on the whole “Make the Left and Democrats angry” feeling they get on the internet that they are not realizing that letting this shit happen to be a gigantic leap towards the trend of “imperial presidency” since FDR.
        Honestly if there’s one law that should come to pass, it should be this:
        “The President of the Senate CANNOT stop a vote if 60 members of the Senate decide to vote on a bill.” Mitch McConnell has effectively turned the Senate into a limp dick rubber stamp. I hope that history and historians won’t be kind to him

        1. Are you honestly this stupid, or just a disingenuous cow?

          Both Obama and Clinton did the same thing as Trump is doing. Even IF you bitched about it then, the precedent was set at least 25 years ago.
          The federal government averages a shutdown every 4 years or so.

          We have a representative government. A substantial, approaching majority, of constituents voted for their representatives to accomplish the goals Trump was trying to accomplish. I’d wager that there are orders of magnitude more whose priority is a border wall at $5.7b than there are whose priority is $57b total foreign aid or specifically $5b to Mexico or specifically $5b to Honduras.

          Trump is no more nor less responsible for the shutdown than Congress, particularly Schumer, McConnell, and Pelosi. Indeed, Trump has worked harder and presented more offers to reach agreement than any individual members or Congress as a whole.

          It is not our representatives’ duty to acquiesce to demands that betray their own beliefs and/or those of their constituents.

          That you take the position that you do leaves us little room to believe that you are anything but a partisan state supremacist.
          As such, your sentiments can be summarily dismissed for what they are: bullshit.

          1. Suit yourself, clingers — Trump had a huge, winning week!

      2. Don’t you just love how leftists can rewrite the Constitution with a drop of a feather. And make it say, “Any Republican President that “Vetos” is Un-Constitutional.”

        1. Don’t you love how Pussies-For-Trump repeatedly sling bat-shit-crazy bullshit?
          The more Trump is humiliated by Pelosi, the more desperate they get!

          1. Don’t you just love how Pelosi lovers always end up making personal attacks anytime policy is discussed.

            1. Called out as a liar … WHINES because HIS personal attack met with SAME STANDARD (his).
              Changes to DIFFERENT bullshit. FIFTY YEARS BEHIND THE TIMES! (smirk)

              Tribal bigots — left and right — both think EVERYONE fits in one of their OBSOLETE boxes. Reality is too complicated.

              Disagree with Trump on even a single issue, MUST be a “Pelosi lover.”
              Disagree with Pelosi, on even a single issue, MUST be a “Trumpster”

              Over 60% of Americans reject BOTH boxes. ONLY two boxes has been obsolete for only 50 years!

              The world has passed you by, leaving you in the dustbin of history.
              But keep bellowing. Your dying tribe needs something

  27. Still, he suggested he might declare one if Congress does not allocate border wall money by February 15.

    Wasn’t Mexico supposed to pay for it?

  28. That’s the end of the wall nonsense. Finally.

    Trump got his ass handed to him on the SOTU, got his ass handed to him on the shutdown and had a top advisor arrested by the FBI.

    Rough week.

    1. His followers have been getting their asses kicked for their entire lives.

      You figure one or two more self-inflicted, humiliating failures are going to faze them?

    2. Poor Lefties. They don’t even see what’s coming for them.

      I feel really bad for them.

      1. Even FOX says lovestatism1789 is a psycho lying troll.
        An Obedient-Pussy-For Trump.

        FOX NEWS REPORTS TRUMP’S TOTAL “CAVE” — Trumptards in desperation panic mode
        “President Trump said Friday that he will support a short-term spending bill to re-open the government, temporarily ending the partial government shutdown that has dragged on for more than a month — despite a day earlier saying Republicans would not “cave” on his demands for funding for a wall on the southern border.

        But they STILL swallow his bellowing bullshit!

        PROOF or SNEERING. your choice

  29. So the Democrats have three weeks to propose a border security bill that the Senate and Pres. Trump will agree to, or it’s Shutdown II and Pen and Phone Build the Wall.

    1. I think he would be better off going with the emergency plan B. Trump can’t risk another gunfight like this.

      It would let him declare victory, wall is on the way folks. Sure it would take some years if any actually got built but how many of his base are still upset over the Muslim ban?

      Then in 2020 he can still run on the wall.

    2. Yup.

      Lefties always underestimate Trump.

      Just like this shutdown. They think Trump was “a pussy” for giving in when he didn’t have to. No Lefty pauses to think about Trump would give in right now.

      Trump has owned Lefties since Jan 20, 2019. They cannot keep up with his bobbing and weaving.

      I won’t even say “I told you so” when Lefties start crying during Shutdown Part Deux.

      1. Pelosi, Well, Manhandles Trump With Two Tools, a Feather and a Sledgehammer
        By Eleanor Clift

        She said more than once that she is respectful of the office Trump holds, ‘perhaps more respectful than he is.’

        NOW is when we learn what Pelosi really is. It was reasonable to wonder if she’s just another Trump on a power-ego trip.

        Will she negotiate this ?. For all those Dreamers?
        Or is she a bully, like Trump. “My way or the highway?”

        The real, Art of the Deal is a win-win. NOBODY agrees to lose, DUH, and only a spoiled-brat bully would think otherwise. (which is WHY he keeps failing at it)

        NOW is her time to give TRUMP a win.

        “Mr. President, I will personally sponsor $7 billion for a wall, if you support permanent legal status for Dreamers.”

        (Let each Dreamer earn their own citizenship)

        If she pulls this off, SHE will be the best Democrat candidate for 2020. (I doubt she’d want it)
        She’s not the progressive wing, not a wuss like Hillary, and not thug like Trump.

        P.S. If she offers and he refuses ? going public will guarantee a Senate impeachment conviction.

      2. Trump’s golf course employed undocumented workers ? and then fired them amid showdown over border wall

        POSSINING, N.Y ? They had spent years on the staff of Donald Trump’s golf club, winning employee-of-the-month awards and receiving glowing letters of recommendation. … Some were trusted enough to hold the keys to Eric Trump’s weekend home. … but they were fired because they are undocumented immigrants,

        The sudden firings ? which were previously unreported ? follow last year’s revelations of undocumented labor at a Trump club in New Jersey, where employees were subsequently dismissed. The firings show Trump’s business was relying on undocumented workers even as the president demanded a border wall to keep out such immigrants.

        But … but …. THIS is how we drain the swamp!
        Put a swamp thing in charge.

  30. Shutting down the government over 5.7 billion dollars (chump change) and 320 miles of metal fencing was the work of a gang of self-interested and unpatriotic toddlers: Trump, Pelosi, and Shumer. Someone had to be the adult in the room and take one for the nation and re-open the government. For all her rhetoric about the “interests” of the American people, it wasn’t Pelosi who backed down from an unreasonable and childish contest of wills. I don’t care for Trump and think his insouciant “build a wall” mantra was cartoonish and dumb, but the simple fact is that Pelosi was just as willing to keep the government closed against the interests of the very Americans she says she’s acting on behalf of as Trump was. She’s just as guilty of being belligerently partisan and careless with our well-being as he was. I can’t fault Trump for “surrendering” when We The People lose irrespective of whether he or Pelosi win. It was time for this to end.

    1. Umm, Democrats passed exactly $5.7 billion for border security in the House. The Senate passed a bill. We don’t know if they could be reconciled. Trump rejected both.

      Trump broke two deals HE had negotiated — because of attacks by Hannity/Coulter/Limbaugh.
      One HAD $25 million for a wall, in return for Dreamer legal status — he told Senator Feinstein, on live TV, that he’d sign a bill with Dreamers .. even a separate one. THAT is what his masters will not allow.

      The untold truth, by ANY media, is that Trump has moved several times toward unifier … but his base has been manipulated by Hannity/Coulter/Limbaugh … who SNARL one must be TOUGH to win what YOU want … even if you don’t have the votes Spoiled brat children, demanding a win-lose, in game they don’t control.

      Would YOU make deal with NOTHING in it for you? And CONCEDE to the other side????

      Trump has ALREADY said he’d probably force another shutdown, if the deal now negotiating by a bipartisan team includes legal status for Dreamers …. caving, in advance, to Hannity/Coulter/Limbaugh.

      How can Pelosi “negotiate” with a coward who NEVER honors his own commitments, and says – at the beginning — your biggest chip is off the table?

      Truman was no whiner. He ACCEPTED “The buck stops here.” When will Trump man up?

  31. The feminized society; Running around calling Trump a “wimp” for doing whats right and being a man about it. Good grief.

    Previous wall-built effectiveness rates 92%, 95%, 92%, 96% in illegal traffic drops.

    Pelosi Baits the narrative: Must keep government open — YOU should not have a “Trump Shutdown”
    Trump asks: I need 10-Senators; That’s the problem.. We need border security. Its VERY SIMPLE.
    Pelosi: Of course we do.
    Schumer: We have a disagreement on the walls effectiveness NOT on border security.

    Trump: When you look at these numbers of the effectiveness of our border security —
    Schumer interrupts: YOU JUST SAID IT IS EFFECTIVE
    Trump: These are ONLY areas where you have the “walls”

    Schumer: “Experts say” you can do border security without a wall and walls don’t solve the problem.
    Trump: It totally solves the problem and its very important

    Schumer: We can agree on is we shouldn’t shut down the government… and YOU want to shut it down.
    Trump: No, No, No, No, No.. The last time, Chuck, you shut it down.. and I don’t want to do what you did.
    Trump: You want to put that on me (STANDS UP LIKE A MAN).. I’ll take it… And I am Proud.. I’ll take the mantle.

    Great example of the innate and deceptive way women try to manipulate men and when they fail will resort to blame pointing and name calling.

  34. “This was in no way a concession.”

    1. It was a TOTAL cave … according to Coulter, Limbaugh, Tucker, Malkin, Fox and Breitbart.
      Or are THEY fake news now? (smirk)

      He’s still programming the minds of his core base.
      First Coulter makes him cave. Then Pelosi makes him cave in the opposite direction.
      Trump has managed to box himself in … between two GURLS.
      Sane way he suffered so many business failures.

  35. Pelosi still wants to postpone the SOTU. Dang that is harsh.

    She has cute grandchildren who came to the capitol when she was voted in. Something tells me she is not one of those “you can stay up late with cookies and ice cream but don’t tell mom” grandmas.

    1. FALSE
      “The State of the Union is not planned now,” the California Democrat responded, standing next to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat. “What I said to the President is when the government is open we will discuss a mutually agreeable date,, and I’ll look forward to doing that and welcoming the President to the House of Representatives for the State of the Union when we agree on that.”

      Co-Equal Branches. He NEEDS a lesson on that.
      And if takes a GURL to honor the Oath of Office, the Founders are smiling in Heaven.

  36. Pelosi, Well, Manhandles Trump With Two Tools, a Feather and a Sledgehammer
    By Eleanor Clift
    She said more than once that she is respectful of the office Trump holds, ‘perhaps more respectful than he is.’

    NOW is when we learn what Pelosi really is. It was reasonable to wonder if she’s just another Trump on a power-ego trip.

    Will she negotiate this ?. For all those Dreamers?
    Or is she a bully, like Trump. “My way or the highway?”

    The real, Art of the Deal is a win-win. NOBODY agrees to lose, DUH, and only a spoiled-brat bully would think otherwise. (which is WHY he keeps failing at it)

    NOW is her time to give TRUMP a win.

    “Mr. President, I will personally sponsor $7 billion for a wall, if you support permanent legal status for Dreamers.”

    (Let each Dreamer earn their own citizenship)

    If she pulls this off, SHE will be the best Democrat candidate for 2020. (I doubt she’d want it)
    She’s not the progressive wing, not a wuss like Hillary, and not thug like Trump.

    P.S. If she offers and he refuses ? going public will guarantee a Senate impeachment conviction.

    1. No cookies then?

      It is all about the cookies.

      Many of us are familiar with the classic children’s book If You Give A Mouse A Cookie. You give the mouse a cookie then he wants a glass of milk, a straw, a bunch of other things which eventually makes him thirsty. So he wants another glass of milk and then finally…a cookie.

      Politicians are like that. They keep wanting more things and it all becomes circular.

      1. Don’t DARE stand in the way of that circle!

    2. Poor Hihn the troll.

      1. PROOF or SNEERING JACKALS. your choice

        Only 7% of Voters Back Wall Funding to End Shutdown

        69% of Americans Don’t Think Trump’s Border Wall Is a Priority

        FOX NEWS REPORTS TRUMP’S TOTAL “CAVE” — Trumptards in desperation panic mode
        “President Trump said Friday that he will support a short-term spending bill to re-open the government, temporarily ending the partial government shutdown that has dragged on for more than a month — despite a day earlier saying Republicans would not “cave” on his demands for funding for a wall on the southern border.

        Trump realized he’d lose either way ?. to a GURL!
        Coulter had been his dominatrix.. Now he’s caving to Pelosi.
        Why? Because Trump.
        This is how he avoids being ridiculed for caving to either. (Think it through.)

        SEVERE denial of known facts is a psychiatric affliction

      2. One person links to PROOF
        A second person attacks with an insult, zero content on any of the issues.
        Which one is the troll?
        Which is the Thought Police?

  37. UPDATE

    Poll: Only 7% of Voters Back Wall Funding to End Shutdown
    “Only 7 percent of American voters surveyed support giving Donald Trump funding for his Mexico border wall to end the U.S. government shutdown, according to a new poll. … The poll also shows that a majority of the respondents, 57 percent, believe it’s likely that Russia “has compromising information” on Trump.”

  38. Fact-check: Five things President Trump said while announcing the shutdown is over

    (the first I’ve seen summarize all the many wall breeches. Edited for space. Original sources linked online

    Several instances of migrants going over existing wall structures or under the border came to light during the shutdown

    his week when a group of mostly Guatemalan asylum seekers breached the U.S.-Mexico border south of Yuma, Arizona, ? using a ladder to scale the border fence. ? Security-camera footage ?. 118 migrants. About 86 percent of them were families traveling together, the agency said.

    about a week after the largest single group of migrant families and minors ever recorded in the Yuma area tunneled underneath a border fence ? 376 migrants ? breached the U.S.-Mexico border ?

    ? Mexican law enforcement officials released a video showing a newly discovered tunnel ? the third tunnel found in the past couple of months.

    one ladder = 118 migrants OOPS

    Then again …. inconveeeeeen-yent truths, with documented sources = trolling. (lol)

  39. The government shutdown cost the economy $11 billion, including a permanent $3 billion loss, Congressional Budget Office says

    To “win” $5.7 billion. (snort)
    No he threatens a repeat! Do the math, Trumpsters.

    Trump threatens to lose $6 billion, to get …. $5.7 billion!
    This is HOW Trump had 12 business FAILURES … EVERY actual business.
    And was forced to pay a $25 million settlement for FRAUD … while in office.
    An office he continually DISGRACES
