Senate blocks Trump-backed plan to end government shutdown and fund his border wall


Hmmmm prok rings with Top The Tater chive-onion sour cream dip.

Last time I steamed 9 eggs for 9 minutes and they were slightly runny. nttawwt. I'll go for 10 minutes next time. Getting the water boiling first reduces the time uncertainty.


Senate moronity rules.

What Stetler article talls me is that they realize we are on to them so they are going to set up a Journolist-type site for themselves where they can snark and plot in private.

I guarantee you there already is a new Journolist, and has been for a while.

Romney votes for president’s Plan but Cotton and Lee do not.
Gardner votes aye.


I don't know, mr, I was a pretty smooth operator in elementary school. You're probably lucky you didn't know me.

As for the question you asked me last night, I didn't do anything to Brother Timony. He tried to stare me down and I didn't let him. Guess we just didn't like each other.

I had a few other personality conflicts with the bros. One shoved me against the lockers on my first day at school because I didn't have my shirt tucked in. Another one threatened to nail my foot to the floor and make me run around in circles.

I spent a lot of time in detention. They called it "jug," as in, "You have jug." This involved standing in a classroom for an hour after school - jackets on and windows closed in the summer; jackets off and windows open in winter - while Brother Dobbins, the Dean of Discipline, sat at the front of the room and read a book. I believe he read at least one book per day.


So who were the RINO traitors, other than that Colorado dimwit?


How wonderful!
Thank you for letting me know!
I bet you and MrsK are so proud of her!
Can’t wait to get back to school and find out where my former freshman , now seniors are going.


Missed this: Romney votes for president’s Plan but Cotton and Lee do not.
Gardner votes aye.

So it sounds like Trump's plan is peeling off the far left (i.e. 98% of Dems) and the far right.

What order were the brothers?


Forensic accounting of all Congressional tax returns would be good too.


WASHINGTON—Rep. Richard Neal, the only Democrat with clear power to obtain President Trump’s tax returns, on Thursday brushed aside calls from progressive groups to move more quickly, sticking to a cautious, deliberate approach on the sensitive issue.

Pope Che has spoken:

Fear of migration is "making us crazy," Pope Francis says as he flies into the fray over the issue in Central America

I was raised Protestant so I usually stay out of any discussions regarding Catholics. This current Pope however makes me wonder if he is more of an adherent to Marxism than Christianity. For him to have gotten elected, does that mean the majority of cardinals who get to vote are also leftwingers or were they duped into voting for him?

But I'm leaning toward the Silicon Valley exec's view that the incessant tweeting undermines trust. "You guys are down in the mud with the bots and the bad faith actors," the tech exec said.

The exec's got it wrong about the media. The exec should have said:

"You guys are down in the mud with the bots and the bad faith actors."

Getting the water boiling first reduces the time uncertainty.
The number of eggs makes a difference.


What order were the brothers?

I'm not sure but I know a number of them went graduated from Sienna.


There was a lot of shoving up against lockers at the coed high school I first taught at in the 70’s by the gym teachers mainly.


Apparently Franciscan, which does ring a bell.



Put the eggs in a pot. Cover with tap water. Bring to a boil. Cover pot, turn off heat but leave on the burner. Set timer for ten minutes.
Then pour off the hot water and do the cold water thing.

Perfect hard boiled eggs EVERY.SINGLE.TIME for over three decades.

Trust me--

That steamer thing is just one more thing to wash, and way more complicated than you need.

And didn't work.


No one is duped into voting for the pontiff.
They are a group of cardinals guided by the Holy Spirit to discern who the next Pope will be.
Black smoke- no Pope decision.
White smoke- Pope has been chosen.


Speaking the truth

Ryan Saavedra
Democrat Rep. Collin Peterson (MN) on the border wall: "Give Trump the money. I’d give him the whole thing…Why are we fighting over this? We’re going to build that wall anyway, at some time."


Elizabeth Warren to propose 'wealth tax' on Americans with more than $50 million in assets, economic advisor says
While Ocasio-Cortez's plan is a tax on income, Warren's proposal would tax wealth.

This smells of desperation because “soak the rich” income tax schemes usually get pushed on the middle class, but a wealth tax is going to be hard to sneak around. This is going to hit a lot of Democratic donors.



That's how I do it, too! I don't need an egg cooker just like I don't need a rice cooker (which my daughter has but I never use).


Murkowski and Gardner and another Repub voted Dem plan.




Hollywood, Wall Street, Union bosses, etc.

Are they going to send people to assess their homes, jewelry, antique collections, rental properties, luxury cars, private planes, etc?

Let's see how quickly Warren is shut up. HA!


PG&E would inevitably need to turn to California ratepayers for funding, resulting in a substantial increase — an estimated one-year increase of more than five times current rates in typical utility bills," it said in the filing.

Was it an Obama judge? Could a judge shutter the whole utility?

We've seen judges try to raise property taxes before, right? This guy is Chief Justice material.


Collins was the other Repub to vote yes on Dem plan.

Are you implying the Holy Spirit wanted the next Pope to be someone who supported Marxism (which includes atheism as a core tenet) over Christianity?


how many Dems voted for the "R" plan?


PG&E has already dramatically stepped up its vegetation management...

Well back from seeing the Ortho guy, and then my PT gal.

He examined me, did some neuro and strength tests, took some x-rays to rule in or out any bone issues, prescribed prednisone, and told me to come back in a week so he can assess change.

Also sent a note to the PT gal saying to restart the core strength exercises, so we did that today.

He said unless things don't get better or get worse, gotta do a minimum of 6 weeks of PT before they can sell Medicare on MRIs.

make sense anonamom?

It was a planned coup by the left-wing of the curia. Cardinal Deneels of Belgium blew the top off the coup. He was part of it. Pope Che is actually more a Peronist than a Marxist

More here:




: The Covington Catholic third-party investigation is being conducted by Greater Cincinnati Investigation. We have reviewed documents sent to families asking for permission for investigators to interrogate students directly. This was ordered by Bishop Foys


Isakson and Alexander also voted yes for Dem plan.

I spent a lot of time in detention. They called it "jug," as in, "You have jug."

They called it that in my Catholic high school, too.

Manchin only.


Copy of permission slip.



Tom R, I'm even more an outsider than you (other than having met Cardinal O'Malley of Boston a couple of times), but I think his being from S. America where there's a huge Catholic population was part of it. It will be interesting to see if there's a counterrevolution at the next opportunity and a conservative pope is selected. Cardinal O'Malley would be a great choice from my outsider's perspective. Probably has little chance.


At St Ignatius High school where my husband attended it was also called jug.
You had to go on a Saturday morning and learn a passage of poetry.


You are correct in your assumption .
Most like ly the next Pope will be conservative.


We are now aware who the squishes are for future votes.
Alexander no longer cares as he is not running for re-election.
We get rid of a few duds and more step up to take their place.


That's a release from legal liability not a permission slip.

Actually, Jonah, Some of the Best Recent Writing at the National Review was by me, in that column you plagiarized in the entirety
Are you going to include a credit there any time or are you just going to keep commenters praising you for having had your first "original insight" since 1989?

Oh wait, that's right, your story is that you credited me before the last eight times you monetized my article for your use. So you figure because you've ridden this pony and gotten paid for it enough times, it's kind of Your Pony now, in a way.
LOL, a commenter just pointed out that Jonah agrees with subliterate thickfingered undersized-troglodyte Jay Caruso's assessment of me as "unoriginal" and yet... you're the one who just plagiarized an entire one of my columns. And not only that, this is like the sixth time you've "borrowed" it and basically just repeated it to your dwindling audience. (Though the previous mentions usually contained attribution.) Who is the fool lacking originality, the fool or the fool who plagiarizes him

With all due respect, you need to do a little more research into the coup that disposed Benedict, or are calling Cardinal Deneels a liar? Deneels is not the only source.

One more link on the personalities involved and their purpose.

Private Maytag on NBC yesterday :“What I’ve always said is I’ve never stepped foot in south Vietnam. I don’t know how much clearer can that be,”

Nathan Phillips, January 3, 2018 ON Video

"I'm a Vietnam Vet. I served in Marine Corps 72 to 76. I got discharged May 5, 1976. I got honorable discharge and one of the boxes shows peacetime or, what my box says is that I was **in theater**. I don't talk much about my Vietnam times."


Eric Bolling challenges leftist who called for 'punching' Covington Catholic kids

BlazeTV's Eric Bolling, host of "America," called out leftist celebrities and the liberal mob for inciting violence against the Covington (Kentucky) Catholic High School students, whose confrontation with Native American activist Nathan Phillips last week sparked a media firestorm.

Eric shared a few examples, starting with "Daily Show" host Trevor Noah, who said, "Everyone that sees that smug look wants to punch that kid [Nick Sandmann]."

He also read Disney producer, Jack Morrissey's tweet, which said, "#MAGAkids go screaming, hats first, into the woodchipper," and a tweet from Vulture magazine writer, Erik Abriss, who wrote, "I just want these people to die. Simple as that. Every single one of them. And their parents."

Eric wrapped up with castigating former CNN commentator Reza Aslan for tweeting, "honest question. Have you ever seen a more punchable face than this kid's?"

"Well, Reza, I have a question for you," Eric said. "You wanna punch a kid? How about this, see this face? Why don't you try punching me, Rez? Let's see what happens with that."

That's the spirit.

Warren's Wealth Tax

Neo, if Warren wants a one time piece of the wealth, that is how the death tax works.

If she means an annual payment of X% of the wealth you still have, then that's how property taxes are collected.

So nothing new either way, just a system for getting more for them, faster.

I 'splain to my kids and heirs that the government takes about half what I earn, I eat some of the other half and save what is leftover which they can have when I die. Except, having already taken half of my production while I was alive, they will take half of what's left when I die, so the kids get what's left in the pizza box. AOC and Warren want the box.

Thing is the more aggressive they get, the faster the pool of wealth they are sucking on will diminish, in time to zero. The total pool of wealth in a year is equal to the size of the pool last year, plus the amount of wealth added, minus the amount of wealth consumed (by the owner or by the government). So if you consume more wealth than you make, the amount left at year end decreases.

Duh,...I know.

So when Progs demand higher shares of each dollar earned at the margin, as a group, people will work less to produce less (why bother?). Then if it is certain that the more you "save" (produced minus consumed), then more of that will be taken by the government, then same thing (why bother?).

So eventually they will have taken all the collective wealth from the producers, and nobody will bother to produce any more for them to take.

Works like that every time.

Double Duh.

How stupid do you have to be to do something like this? I don't care if he was at a frat party, it's stupid to do something like this.

Back in the 80s my frat had a theme party where you dressed up like a famous dead person. Me and two other guys dressed up like Bob Marley (who was dead) and the Wailers (who were still alive) and did the blackface thing. I imagine if some kid were to do that today he might get kicked out of college.

Having made just made it legal to grind up inconvenient babies right up until the end of labor, now the NY politicians have passed a bill to give a free college education to illegal aliens.

How many times did the GOP-led Congress threaten Rosenstein and subpoena him to turn over DOJ/FBI files to them? Here are just a few links:




My position has always been that if Trump thought Rosenstein was a Black Hat trying to destroy his presidency, at any time he could have ordered Rosenstein to comply with the Congressional GOP demands. For reasons we still don't know why, Trump never forced Rosenstein to comply with the demands of the Trump-allies in Congress.

With that said, I expect to see responses like this to any future Democrats investigation in the House that Trump knows is nothing but a publicity stunt.


Thanks to what we have already seen from Rosenstein, its already been established that the House can't force the Trump administration to comply with their demands/subpoenas.

I would never, ever do that. Ever. I guess it's my Methodist Dean of Women mother's strict influence.

People are still nice, and here is a thread about such an incident.


Why did this require a "sensitive content" warning?



Isakson was patty murray's Rep co-sponsor to the bipartisan transformational vision WIOA and Lamar Alexander was in the same role in the transformation ed law passed in December 2015.

These people fundamentally believe that public policy and governments get to organize society. Or at least Johnny's aides do. They have always seemed to be hyper-policy types more Dem in outlook than Republican and I was not impressed with his synaptic firing ten years ago when we chatted at a party.

He is also worried about the super bowl.


They call it a jug a Marquette High. The enforcer Mr Taylor carries a bat. It's pretty funny. Jr. has never gotten a jug.

As for Pope Francis. He came from a country with a failed economy. His frame of reference as to money and capital, is STUNTED. Kind of like the FULL COMMIE PARTY.
I've know Timothy Cardinal Dolan for many years.
He understands that POOR dysfunctional countries and economies have NOTHING to offer the poor, sick and needy. In order to take care of the least among us, WE and our GOVERNMENT employees, must create capital and wealth.
Which countries on earth help the poor needy and ravaged more than U.S./US. Pope Francis is economically illiterate. Economy is not a moral issue, it is a fact of LIEF or DEATH.
Clowns like BUG EYES CORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRTEZ from N.Y. has believed and pablum that has been spoon fed to her. MORON.



Lay leaders want Cuomo excommunicated.


Buckeye, you're a smart guy, and I assume you've seen the full video, where this PHILLIPS dude makes a b-line to the young high school folks. He literally LITERALLY gets in the young mans face.
I have a high school senior at a Catholic High School. My son is a large man. 13 wide shoes for example. That young man did exactly what MLK JR would have wanted him to do. I'm so very very very very sorry to say this, but if I witnessed that toothless COMMIE motherfucker, assault, and get literally in my 17 year old sons face. There would be a problem.


This guy continues to impress. Link goes to his video statement, in SPANISH, with English subtitles:

The United States stands with #Venezuela and Juan Guaidó. I’m proud to back our President on this one. I’ve witnessed this beautiful country deteriorate, and it’s time to end the suffering. Watch my statement below: pic.twitter.com/8DlEFiMF5i

Daily Wire reports three new House investigations of Trump in addition to all the others:

"Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) sent a letter Wednesday to the White House counsel, requesting information about how the White House handled security clearances and background investigations and demanding a full account of how key White House figures, including Jared Kushner, obtained security clearances despite "contacts with foreign officials."

"The Committee on Oversight and Reform is launching an in-depth investigation of the security clearance process at the White House and Transition Team in response to grave breaches of national security at the highest levels of the Trump Administration, including by former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and others," Cummings writes, though he never quite specifies why he's ultimately concerned.

The House Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel (D-NY) also sent a letter Wednesday inquiring whether Trump's "business entanglements" influence his foreign policy decisions. CNN reports that Engel's investigation will dovetail with the larger House investigation into whether Trump's businesses violate the Emoluments Clause, which prohibits presidents from requesting special favors from countries with business in front of the United States, but will focus more intently on the "President's private businesses and finances."


OL, I heard DJT was sending classified documents to CARLOS DANGER. No big deal.

WH’s Sanders Leader Mitch McConnell and Senator Chuck Schumer are meeting now to see whether or not they can work out of the deadlock. As was made clear to Senator Lindsay Graham, the 3 week CR would only work if there is a large down payment on the wall
Graham: The way forward is clear to me: a three-week continuing resolution (CR) that includes a down payment on wall/barrier funding and priorities of Democrats for disaster relief, showing good faith from both sides. I strongly urge my Democratic colleagues to work with the WH


Yeah, the Democrats need disaster relief alright.

Jim Eagle

For every Trump admin person or action Cummings investigates then Lindsey and the other Senate Committees should investigate a Dem like Obama or Hillary but then we have Burr. Ugh!


None of those investigations seem like serious threats to me. Let them spin their wheels on impeachment fantasies, then work themselves into a lather and pull the trigger on impeachment. We know it'll happen. The question is: who will benefit in the end?

Old Lurker

So in three we we can do it all over again, wasting the month already invested in the application of pain.

Good afternoon! The giant spinning ice disc in Maine's Presumpscot River appears to have been cracked by a New Jersey man who tried to carve a peace sign into it. "I'm making a giant sign"Christopher Angulo told WGME CBS-13. "I want it to spin around and create a visual for the world to see..."
According to the New York Daily News,Angulo was put in a psychiatric ward in 2013 after a stunt in which he climbed a storm damaged NJ roller coaster to plant an American flag.
What a world.


Way behind...

"PG&E would inevitably need to turn to California ratepayers for funding, resulting in a substantial increase — an estimated one-year increase of more than five times current rates in typical utility bills," it said in the filing.

Note that California progs will accept this reasoning from PG&E because they're "not for profit" but would never, ever accept any reason for why an Evil Corporation couldn't raise wages.


Ext, the collective i.q. of the Dem leadership is the same as the the over and under for the Super Bowl.


I think President Trump is using his declassify card close to the vest as he waits for the DEMS to over-reach.
Yes investigate Obama and Hillary but don’t use Burr’s committee with goofball Warner on it.
Sherrod zBrown I believe up in NH today instead of voting in the Senate.
Believe me people , he has a snowball’s chance in hell of getting the Dem nomination.

Gus "Ext, the collective i.q. of the Dem leadership is the same as the the over and under for the Super Bowl."

Still true if you add in the R counterparts too.


I am with you.
What an incredible waste of time.
I had fun today watching the new senators vote.
Synema and McSally voted right after one another. It must really gall Krysten that after all that cheating to beat McSally , she is right there in the Senate with her. Seeing Josh Hawley instead of McCaskill was wonderful.
I am calling dibs on him.


OL, for the most part, I think Republicans understand government, security, and spending.
Unfortunately, they have no balls.


For every Trump admin person or action Cummings investigates then Lindsey and the other Senate Committees should investigate a Dem like Obama or Hillary but then we have Burr.

The problem is that Senate rules require both the chair and ranking member to agree before committees can issue subpoenas. Barr is asshole enough to agree with Warner on Cohen, for example. Feinstein won't agree with Graham on anyone.
