Seems Harry's deleted the 'hold my beer' tweet:

Fuck you https://t.co/Pl6OCDgQ2T

Of course it was screen cap'd.

Here are some of the terms that Harry’s considers to be harmful and in need of redefining:

Man up.
Be a man.
Be the man.
Be tough.
Be stoic.
Be a rock.
Keep a stiff upper lip.
Grow a pair.
Boys will be boys.
Take it like a man.
Be the breadwinner.

The reason there is no leaking from the 13 Dems is because there is nothing derogatory about President Trump to leak.

🚨HUGE 🚨

The Pelosi trip had been scheduled for 3 PM TODAY (!!!)

It had been previously unannounced - Trump broke the news of her trip on Twitter as he canceled her trip.

Trump tells her to "fly commercial" instead.

WOWWOWOW

"Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan has been postponed," Trump wrote in a letter to the top House Democrat. "We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over."

Neo, the label of the trip as a "public relations event" is perfect. a nuking from orbit.

Law makers and Pelosi staff on the bus. They will have to come off that bus in front of the cameras. Which members of congress are on that bus who were leaving in the middle of a government shutdown?

In light of Harry Gillette’s guidance, is it kosher for Trump to b*tchslap Pelosi?

matt - deplore me if you must

well, we have to save money somehow and political junkets are as good a place to start as any.

Nancy, and the country, have never experienced real New York hardball before. I am going to venture that she has an aneurysm over this one. Chuckie's probably calling 911 and pooping his Depends. Trump just dialed it to 11.

The Afghans are probably laughing their asses off as is Sisi. Some preening American politician living off the public dime and wasting their time is just what they need.

the impact of the shutdown or something.

heard a news story about a hotel chain this morning, dint catch the name, but it's whining over losing 25 million semolians in hotel bookings since the shut down.

in this day of cyber meeting, the USG should keep their pantloads in their home offices instead of burning fuel and per diem. Mick should be interested in how the government dime is subsidizing specific verticals.

the economic "growth" stats should be readjusted for net government spending into the private sector, no matter who it makes "look bad."

Thumbs on the Dems taking the HOR, Ig. And with Schumer making an ass of himself yesterday with his little unconstitutional resolution, the Senate will continue to be a useful fulcrum.

i'm not so sure whether it's useful to call AOC "dumb" or "smart."

she's being handled just the same as The Rat. so, hand her the recipe book and a handler (courtesy of Bernie Sanders, someone she worked with in the past), and follow the formula.

now she's in "banking oversight" with Maxine H2o, somebody who knows how to loot financial institutions--- she was part of the Blithering Homo Barney Frank's cabal and hollowed out 1 or 2 banks near her home district. she's a made gal.

are made criminals "smart" or "dumb"? the point is more that they breed and multiply in their own image--- effective in sandbagging the long arm of the law.

i expect AOC to become a National Threat once the NY Senate seat comes into her sights. that one needs to be removed from the national stage pronto, along with the Moslems she "rides with."

This is a great article pulling the whole border debate together

Citizenship without consent erases borders; it is a step toward a borderless world. But this will be a world where citizenship is superfluous; “universal persons” will inevitably be subjects (or clients) of the administrative state that will govern the world order. The world homogeneous state, however, will dispense with the inconvenience of having to rest its powers on the consent of the governed, because it will not be a constitutional government but an administrative tyranny. In this future world state there will be no citizens, only subjects. Feudalism will have returned, but now on a global scale. Many on the Right who support supposedly “compassionate” immigration policy do not realize they are contributing to the realization of this future state.
Constitutional government, on the other hand, can exist only in independent, sovereign states where citizens share a common good that separates and distinguishes them from the rest of the world. Rights and privileges are unique to citizenship. They will not be a part of the homogenous world state—that borderless world where subjects of the administrative state will be called “universal persons” who are clients, but not citizens
