Freshmen House Dems Take Wildly Different Tacks In Shutdown Approach

WASHINGTON (AP) — One group went to the White House with Republicans to talk about border security and reopening shuttered parts of the government. Another, led by social media stars, marched around Capitol Hill in a widely-posted but futile search for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — hashtag #WheresMitch. The Democrats’ two paths within a 12-hour stretch this week demonstrated the dramatic differences emerging among members of the historic freshman class of House Democrats that — tog...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez teaches fellow Democrats how to use Twitter

Such is the hope, at least, of Democrats on Capitol Hill, who have undergone a class in how to tweet more effectively, from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the veritable Twitter superpower. “With @AOC, @RepDebDingell, @jahimes, @davidcicilline, @RepCartwright & @Twitter representatives at training session on Twitter for Democratic Members of Congress,” tweeted California congressman Ted Lieu, after the lesson. Nobody in the Democratic party – Michelle and Barack Obama included – has as much Twitter ...

GOP Senators Split With White House On Russia Sanctions

WASHINGTON (AP) — Almost a dozen Senate Republicans broke with the White House Tuesday on Russia, voting to move forward on a resolution that would maintain sanctions on companies linked to oligarch Oleg Deripaska. The Democratic resolution would stop the Treasury Department from lifting penalties against the Russian aluminum manufacturing giant Rusal and two other companies connected to Deripaska.

Congress Will Skip Planned Recess If Shutdown Continues

WASHINGTON (AP) — Staring down the next deadline to pay federal workers, the White House shifted tactics, trying to bypass House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to negotiate with rank-and-file lawmakers even as President Donald Trump dug in for a prolonged shutdown. The House and Senate announced Tuesday they would stay in session, canceling an upcoming recess week at home if the shutdown continued, which seemed likely. On the shutdown’s 25th day Tuesday, Trump did not move off his demand to have Congre...

The Shutdown Is Still Going On. So Are the Political Stunts

In an effort to appear busy, however, both sides are resorting to political stunts. There have already been three failed attempts this week try and break the nearly month-long stalemate. House Democrats brought legislation…

Trump's attorney general pick: Robert Mueller is not overseeing a 'witch hunt'

Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general has contradicted the US president by saying Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russian election meddling, is not involved in a “witch hunt”.  William Barr, who will oversee the Mueller probe if confirmed to the role, vowed to allow the investigation to be completed during a grilling by US senators on Tuesday.  Mr Barr called Mr Mueller a “friend” and said they had known each other for 30 years after being colleagues at the Justice Depart...

President Trump Has to Win the Border Security Fight

Opinion USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The one thing neither the liberal media nor the Democrats have taken into their calculations about the government shutdown is that President Trump has to win on the border security issue. He has no choice. If it takes six months, it will take six months. If it can be done next Monday, it will be done next Monday. As commander in chief, President Trump has said controlling the southern border is a genuine national security issue and that failure would mean Americ...

U.S. Government Shutdown Hits Record Length With No End Seen

The White House scuttled efforts to reach a deal on Capitol Hill on Thursday, and Trump’s budget team is drawing up contingency plans for a shutdown that extends through the end of February, according to an administration official. About 800,000 federal workers missed their pay for the first time Friday -- at least some receiving pay stubs for $0.00 -- as unions sued the government for requiring their members to work without pay. Trump said Friday that he planned to sign a bill guaranteeing th...

Trump Repeatedly Undermines Loyal Soldier Pence In The Shutdown Fight

WASHINGTON (AP) — Progress made, said one. Not so, said the other. We’ll meet again, said one. Waste of time, said the other. Such has been the life lately of Mike Pence, the loyal soldier dispatched by President Donald Trump to lead negotiations over the partial government shutdown. The vice president has been one of the administration’s most visible emissaries during the shutdown fight, meeting with lawmakers, sitting for interviews and leading staff-level talks. But he’s been repeatedly — a...

GOP rejected Obama’s executive reach but accepts Trump’s

By LISA MASCARO | AP Congressional Correspondent WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama stunned Republicans when he bypassed Congress and — relying on what he called his pen and his phone — used executive powers to enact his agenda, including protecting millions of young immigrants from deportation. Now, with President Donald Trump proposing an even more dramatic end-run around Congress to build his promised border wall with Mexico, many Republicans are uneasily cheering him on. The potential use o...

Republican rebellion against Donald Trump's border wall shutdown stance gathers pace

A Republican rebellion against Donald Trump’s refusal to reopen government without new money for his Mexico border wall appears to be growing as his TV address failed to break the impasse.  Three Republican senators are now publicly calling for the government shutdown to end even if there is no border wall deal, while half a dozen more have voiced concerns about the stand-off.  Mr Trump attempted to convince his own party to stick with his strategy during a closed-door lunch with Republican sena...

After More Failed Negotiations, Pelosi To Push Individual Bills To Reopen Agencies

WASHINGTON (AP) — With no weekend breakthrough to end a prolonged partial government shutdown, President Donald Trump is standing firm in his border wall funding demands and newly empowered House Democrats are planning to step up pressure on Trump and Republican lawmakers to reopen the government. Trump showed no signs of budging on his demand for more than $5 billion for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, though on Sunday he did offer to build it with steel rather than concrete, a concessi...

6 top tax issues of 2018 and what to expect in 2019

Whew! We made it through 2018, the first full year that the latest major tax law changes were in effect. Now we're about to see, depending on when Congress and the White House can agree to get the government (including the Internal Revenue Service) fully operational, if we can deal with the first tax filing season under those laws. But before we get lost in the intricacies of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), I'm taking this one early day in 2019 to look at the six tax stories that turned out t...

President Trump says he needs to deal with Democratic leaders to end partial government shutdown

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump held out little hope Sunday that another round of talks between top aides and congressional staff would produce meaningful progress toward ending the partial government shutdown, seeming to undercut his team by saying he needed to deal directly with Democratic leaders. “Ultimately, it’s going to be solved by the principals,” Trump told reporters at the White House before leaving for staff meetings at Camp David as the shutdown headed into its third week. A sec...

Alone at White House, Trump Laments Bad Press on Syria

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump complained on Monday that he’s getting “bad press” for his decision to pull American troops out of Syria, saying he’s making good on his campaign promise against U.S. involvement in “never ending wars.” Earlier this month, Trump abruptly announced on Twitter that he was withdrawing 2,000 U.S. troops from Syria. He said Islamic State militants are “mostly gone” and he’s “slowly” sending American servicemen and women back to their families. A drawdown of tr...

2020: Year of the Democrats? Maybe Not

Obama in the Rose Garden with Crying Joe Biden U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- If Democrats are optimistic as 2019 begins, it is understandable. Their victory on Nov. 6, adding 40 seats and taking control of the House of Representatives, was impressive. And with the party's total vote far exceeding the GOP total, in places it became a rout. In the six New England states, Republicans no longer hold a single House seat. Susan Collins of Maine is the last GOP senator. In California, Democrats took the ...

GOP Punts Shutdown Mess Until Dems Take Over House In January

WASHINGTON (AP) — The partial government shutdown will almost certainly be handed off to a divided government to solve in the new year — the first big confrontation between President Donald Trump and newly empowered Democrats — as agreement eludes Washington in the waning days of the Republican monopoly on power. Now nearly a week old, the impasse is idling hundreds of thousands of federal workers and beginning to pinch citizens who count on varied public services. Gates are closed at some nat...
