Pelosi Knows How to Play Chicken. Trump Doesn’t.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi struck back on Wednesday by postponing Trump’s trip to Capitol Hill for the State of the Union Speech. Pelosi even suggested that Trump might want to consider reviving the pre-Wilsonian tradition of submitting a report in writing instead of a televised speech.

Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), whom she called a “danger” who might “blow up Capitol Hill.” According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Hallandale Beach commissioner Annabelle Lima-Taub reportedly signed a petition that called for the ouster of Tlaib after she was criticized for saying Democrats should “impeach that motherfucker,” referencing Presid...

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. Senators took two procedural votes to proceed to the resolution, with 11 Republicans voting wit...

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

No one on Capitol Hill or the White House seems any closer to resolving the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. 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...

Devin Nunes (R-CA), and dozens of foreign diplomats and officials, the Daily Beast reported Monday.

Sen. Graham says Trump isn’t giving in on southern border wall

WASHINGTON — A leading Senate Republican close to President Donald Trump says Trump isn’t giving in on his demands for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, the issue that’s caused the partial government shutdown that’s now in its fourth week. Sen. Lindsey Graham says he encouraged Trump during a telephone conversation Sunday to reopen the government for a period of weeks to try to negotiate a deal with Democrats that would break the impasse. But the South Carolina Republican said Trump wants a d...

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...

Fed shutdown underscores why to adjust payroll withholding

Today should be payday for hundreds of thousands of federal government workers. The partial government shutdown, however, means they're not getting their money. And even though the White House, Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service say that the 2019 filing season will open at the end of January as it has in years past and that refunds will be issued, there's no guarantee that things will go smoothly. We are, after all, talking about Uncle Sam's operations. Can IRS meet refund challenge? T...

Sanders’ 2020 Ambitions May Be On Shaky Ground Amid Allegations

NEW YORK (AP) — Allies of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders are rallying behind the embattled presidential prospect, even as they reluctantly begin to ponder a painful possibility: a 2020 presidential field without him. The 77-year-old self-described democratic socialist is the most prominent presidential contender to face a serious setback in the nascent 2020 campaign season. He’s been forced to confront a series of reports detailing allegations of sexual harassment of women by male staffers when ...

Some IRS online services, including ways to pay estimated taxes, are working despite shutdown

The Internal Revenue Service still is mostly closed due to the Capitol Hill impasse over how to fund the federal government. Just a relative handful of employees are in a few IRS offices, doing what have been deemed essential jobs, but not getting paid for their work. Some of the agency's online operations, however, are up and running. And other IRS services, particularly those that are funding in part by fees, could be restarted despite the closure of many of Uncle Sam's offices. In fact, one ...

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...
