GOPer Rodney Davis Is Hoping For A Day-Old Happy Meal

On his way over to the White House to chat with President Trump about why many of his constituents have been without pay for the past 25 days, Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL) had something more satiating on his mind: day-old Mcdonald’s. Heading to the White House to meet w/ @POTUS on how we can end this shutdown & secure our border. As a @McDonalds family, I’m personally hoping for some leftovers from last night’s @ClemsonFB dinner. — US Rep Rodney Davis (@RodneyDavis) January 15, 2019 Davis has...

Trump Humble Brags About Buying ‘Over 1,000 Hamberders’ (Hamburgers) For Team

Make Fast Food Great Again. Due to the government shutdown he created, our supposed-billionaire president was forced to spend his own big bucks providing dinner for the Clemson Tigers basketball team during their visit to the White House on Monday evening. So, President Trump scrounged up one of his favorite meals: he bought over 1,000 fast food burgers for the team. In a typo-ladened tweet on Tuesday morning, Trump bragged about his hospitality and the team’s savage appetite. Great being wi...

'I never worked for Russia': Trump hits out at 'dirty cops' who launched probe after he sacked FBI chief

Donald Trump, the US president, declared on Monday that he has "never" worked for Russia as he hit out at reports that he was investigated by the FBI over alleged ties to the Kremlin.  The US president delivered a definitive rejection of claims that the FBI investigated whether he was acting on Russia's behalf when he sacked James Comey, the bureau's director, in 2017.  It came after he refused to say "no" when asked if he was working for Russia in a Saturday night interview, instead say...

Trump: No ‘Chaos’ At WH Because I ‘Have A Plan On The Shutdown’

President Donald Trump denied any White House “chaos” over the longest government shutdown ever in a Saturday morning tweet. Trump, referring to a reporter from the “Amazon Washington Post,” hit back at the notion that he has no plan for the ongoing shutdown.

Trump Says He’s In The WH ‘Waiting’ For Dems On 22nd Day Of Longest Shutdown

President Donald Trump pivoted back to expressing his shutdown woes Saturday morning after going on a Twitter tirade over a reported FBI investigation on him in the days following former FBI Director James Comey’s firing. Trump tweeted that he’s in the White House “waiting” for Democrats to come back to Washington D.C. to end the shutdown — which he claims they could “solve” in “15 minutes.” Democrats should come back to Washington and work to end the Shutdown, while at the same time ending the...

Trump Goes Full Conspiracy Theory, Claims US Is Being Invaded

Upon returning back to the White House following a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border — a trip he admitted to reporters was just a photo op — President Trump concluded that the U.S. is being invaded by immigrants. “I just got back and it is a far worse situation than almost anyone would understand, an invasion!” he said in a Friday morning tweet. Trump and his team have been bending over backward in recent days to paint the situation at the border as a crisis in order to justify the government s...

Donald Trump says '100pc' he will declare national emergency if Democrats don't budge on wall

Donald Trump has said “100 per cent” he will declare a national emergency to build his Mexico border wall if he fails to reach a deal with the Democrats to end the government shutdown.  In his strongest comments yet on the matter, the US president said he would “definitely” take the move if the Democrats continued to refuse to given him $5.7 billion for the wall.  Calling a national emergency could get Mr Trump out of his current bind, opening up new powers that could allow him to push forward c...

Donald Trump's sweet treats fail to convince Democrats as wall meeting ends in acrimony

Donald Trump was on Thursday heading to the border with Mexico to step up pressure on funding for the wall after his latest efforts to end the government shutdown ended in further acrimony. Mr Trump handed out sweets to leading Democrats as he sought their support for the wall in a meeting in the White House on Wednesday night, but the president allegedly flew into a "tantrum", slamming the table and walking out when opposition leaders refused his demands. Mr Trump tweeted shortly after that the...

Schumer: Trump ‘Just Got Up And Walked Out’ Of Shutdown Negotiation Meeting

After congressional Democratic and Republican leadership met with President Donald Trump Wednesday afternoon, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that Trump called the meeting a “waste of his time” and walked out after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she didn’t agree with his desired border wall. “Unfortunately, the President just got up and walked out,” Schumer said, standing alongside Pelosi outside the White House. “He asked Speaker Pelosi, ‘Will you agree to my wall?’ ...

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...

Democratic 2020 candidates: less is more

Forty-five years ago, while running for governor of California the first time, Jerry Brown embraced a new book with a memorable title: “Small Is Beautiful.” It was written by E.F. Schumacher, an Oxford economist who’d left his native Germany after Hitler came to power. Schumacher was an atheist as a young man, and a Marxist. He was a seeker throughout his life, however, who kept an open mind and heart. He helped the British government during World War II, and went to Asia after the war to contem...

Going Great

A very unpretty picture here in the Post of the President’s efforts to negotiate an end to the three-week government shutdown. The White House is making a big play of Vice President Pence working through the weekend in what they claim are negotiations. But the President hasn’t actually given Pence the authority to discuss specific numbers of even specific proposals. And this is compounded by the fact that no one would put much stock in such offers even if Pence were nominally empowered to make t...

Democrats approve new budget plan to end shutdown - without funds for wall

Democrats wasted no time flexing their new power in the US House of Representatives on Thursday by approving legislation backed by new Speaker Nancy Pelosi that would end a 13-day partial government shutdown, ignoring President Donald Trump's demand for $5 billion for a border wall. The White House on Thursday issued a veto threat against both parts of the Democratic legislation. But that did not deter House Democrats. President Donald Trump and congressional leaders were scheduled on Friday...

After swearing in, LA-area Rep. Brad Sherman tries again to impeach President Trump

That didn’t take long: On day 1 of the new Congress, San Fernando Valley Rep. Brad Sherman joined a Texas colleague Thursday to introduce articles of impeachment against President Trump. It’s actually a re-introduction of the articles that Sherman, D-Sherman Oaks, and Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, first submitted July 12, 2017, charging that Trump committed high crimes and misdemeanors by trying to halt the investigation into his campaign’s alleged collusion with Russian officials. The difference is t...

Trump To Meet With Congressional Leaders As Shutdown Drags On

President Trump will meet with congressional leaders on Wednesday at the White House, the first time he’s invited Democrats to talk with him face-to-face since he declared he’d be “proud” to shut down the government in early December. The meeting comes on the twelfth day of the government shutdown, after party leaders engaged in little negotiation over the holiday period. The talks will occur just one day before Democrats officially take control of the House as the new Congress is ushered in. ...

Trump threatens to seal off US-Mexico border 'entirely' if Congress does not agree funding for a wall

Donald Trump, the US president, on Friday threatened to seal off the entire US-Mexico border if Congress does not approve funding for a border wall. His comments came as the federal government shutdown entered its seventh day, with Mr Trump failing to come to a budget agreement with his Democratic opponents. The continued standoff means around a quarter of the US government will likely remain closed well into 2019, when the Democrats will take control of the House of Representatives. The shutdow...

President Donald Trump on Thursday responded to reports that he may have violated a military rule that prohibits personnel from participating in political activity while in uniform when he signed Make America Great Again hats and 2020 patches while visiting troops in Iraq earlier this week. In a tweet, Trump claimed the campaign merch belonged to the soldiers and were not distributed by his team. “If these brave young people ask me to sign their hat, I will sign.

Trump's Christmas meme: "I am all alone."

As I see it in the press...... it seems to mean that Trump is isolated, friendless, and self-pitying. His words are characterized as a "ranting" and "complaining." He stews, un-self-aware, in chaos of his own making. Let's look at the tweet that set off this anti-Trump ideation: I am all alone (poor me) in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed Border Security. At some point the Democrats not wanting to make a deal will cost our Country more ...

Tax and financial lessons from the government shutdown

I'm getting a lot of feedback about the partial government shutdown, specifically about the pay status of Internal Revenue Service (and other federal) personnel who will report to work next week and those who are furloughed. More than 420,000 federal employees who will work will do so without pay, according to a report from the Democrats on the Senate Appropriations Committee. The additional 380,000 furloughed workers head home to wait out the closure, again without pay. Those 800,000 or so fe...

Trump Brags About Not Knowing US Anti-IS Coalition Envoy, Who Resigned In Protest

WASHINGTON (AP) — Brett McGurk, the U.S. envoy to the global coalition fighting the Islamic State group, has resigned in protest over President Donald Trump’s abrupt decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria, joining Defense Secretary Jim Mattis in an administration exodus of experienced national security figures. McGurk described Trump’s decision as a “shock.” Only 11 days ago, McGurk had said it would be “reckless” to consider IS defeated and therefore would be unwise to bring American fo...

What unpaid IRS employees will and won't do during a government shutdown

We're now into the third shutdown of federal offices this year. The other two were brief closures back in January. Will this latest federal government shutdown, which began at midnight today (Saturday, Dec. 22) be similarly short-lived? Or will the nine federal departments and multiple agencies that are now without funding find themselves sidelined for, as Donald J. Trump has vowed, a "very long" time. Duration discussions aside, we do know that unless there's a breakthrough by Congress and the...
