Democrats failed to get the two-thirds vote needed to re-open the federal government through February 1 without funding President Donald Trump’s border wall on one of their attempts Tuesday.
House members favored the measure — which was under suspension — by a 237-187 vote, but that was not enough votes to pass.
The House is trying to get their mission accomplished through a different continuing resolution Tuesday.
Democrats’ failure to even get the H.J. Res 27 bill to the Senate further underscores how President Trump has all the leverage in these negotiations.

President Donald Trump could save enough money to pay for his entire southern border wall with change to spare if he chooses not to sign a bill guaranteeing back pay for furloughed government workers. It would only take three pay periods over six weeks for the government to save more than $6 billion, more than the $5.7 billion Trump is asking for to build the Wall.
The mainstream media is reporting that Trump is prepared to sign the back-pay bill that went to his desk days ago, but Trump has not signed anything, and to do so would knock out some of his leverage over Schumer and Pelosi — which does not seem like it would be in line with “Art of the Deal” policy.
The shutdown — in which 800,000 workers are not working– is saving taxpayers more than two billion dollars for every two-week pay period, but the savings will only count if Trump chooses not to give them back pay.

Minneapolis Police Investigating Potential Vote Fraud Ballot Harvesting After Bombshell Project Veritas Report
Textbook voter fraud.
The Minneapolis Police Department has confirmed that it is actively investigating allegations of felony voter fraud and ballot harvesting after a bombshell Project Veritas report revealed that Democrat campaign operatives connected to Ilhan Omar have been carrying out an industrial-scale harvesting operation.
ALLEGATIONS OF VOTER FRAUD BEING EVALUATED. ✅ The MPD is aware of the allegations of vote harvesting. We are in the process of looking into the validity of those statements. No further information is available at this time on this.

Campaign staffer Liban Mohamed can be seen in the sting openly boasting about possessing more than 300 ballots intended to elect Minneapolis councilor Jamal Osman in his car. Minnesota law only allows one individual to deliver up to three mail-in ballots for another person. It’s questionable as to why the Minneapolis Police Department are yet to make arrests, considering Mohamed is quite literally admitting to a serious election law felony on camera.
Another individual involved with the ballot harvesting ring goes on to confirm that unmarked ballots are being delivered to “people who work with Ilhan Omar” to be marked for a preferred slate of Democrat candidates. This is an even more serious violation of election fraud and identity theft.
Minnesota has suddenly become a critical swing state, with many predicting a conservative backlash to a summer of Black Lives Matter riots and crime. Even a small collection of fraudulent harvested ballots could swing the results of the state’s election, and even the national presidential contest.
The Minneapolis Police needs to expedite its investigation into this criminal fraud before the election is stolen by scurrilous voter fraud operatives.
