White House press secretary Sarah Sanders scoffed at Nancy Pelosi’s package of bills to end the federal government shutdown without providing $5 billion to President Donald Trump for his magnificent Wall on the southern border. Trump is meeting with congressional leaders Wednesday, and the press is trumpeting the fact that they have no press access to the meeting — preventing Trump from surprising Pelosi and Chuck Schumer with another spirited standoff in front of the media.
“Speaker Designate Nancy Pelosi released a plan that will not re-open the government because it fails to secure the border and puts the needs of other countries above the needs of our own citizens,” Sanders stated.
“The Pelosi plan is a non-starter because it does not fund our homeland security or keep American families safe from human trafficking, drugs, and crime,” said the White House official.
The bills have no chance of passing the Republican-controlled Senate because they will not be introduced, said Mitch McConnell’s spokesman.
Did you people really think you could pull a fast one on President Donald Trump?
Our president has been winning negotiations his entire life (read: “The Art of the Deal”). Did you, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, think he was going to back away from the Wall just because you introduce some pathetic bills that do not include Wall funding?
President Trump got out ahead of the dirty Democrats’ sneak plays, making it clear through his own tweets, through his White House consigliere Mick Mulvaney, through his Freedom Caucus ally Mark Meadows, and through Mitch McConnell’s spokesman that he would not sign any bills that did not fund his Wall. They tried to sneak through Sheila Jackson-Lee’s bill to block Wall funding, disingenuously named the “Protect American Taxpayers and Secure Border Act,” without telling anyone. But that plan was exposed. So Pelosi had to appeal to the public.
Pelosi, 78, predictably tried to pitch her “package” of non-Wall bills to the Associated Press, because the clueless Democrats still think the mainstream media is an effective tool to create PR spin for their stupid objectives. It’s not. The American people hate the mainstream media. By the time news circulated of the Democrats’ bills, which they presumably still plan to pass on Thursday, the Republicans had already made them irrelevant.
The Democrats have no collateral in these negotiations. The mainstream media only has one narrative: Trump should be blamed for the shutdown. But here’s the thing: There’s no blame needed. They are the only ones who think a government shutdown is a bad thing, because everything they say is manufactured garbage talking points. Trump’s supporters want the shutdown to continue until we get a Wall. And even the “non-essential” government employees who aren’t getting paid for a while should be thankful to President Trump, because he is teaching them a lesson about how to improve their lives by making themselves more valuable to others. Why would anyone want to be known as “non-essential?” What a pathetic, undignified way to go through life. This is what the government system does to people. It beats them down.
President Trump is on a winning streak. Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney clearly knows what he’s doing — which is a welcome breath of fresh air from Reince Priebus, who is an establishment coward, John Kelly, who basically just tried to block Trump from having conversations with smart people and guard against him making any decisions, and Steve Bannon, who for some reason left out the fact that he told Jeff Sessions to recuse himself in the various books that he had people write about him. Jared Kushner, whose silly New York Observer ran a ridiculous hit piece trying to sandbag my excellent news website, should let Mick do his job without interfering too much, because Kushner has also been there from the beginning, during times when the White House was not exactly knocking it out of the park.
President Trump is a master once he learns how to hack the system, a wise man once told me. It seems like now is the time. Two years in, he is getting the hang of it. This government shutdown is an inspiring, galvanizing thing for his supporters. The only thing better would be a big magnificent Wall.
Trump has all the cards. He can close the entire southern border if he wants to. He can keep this shutdown going indefinitely. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer don’t know what to do. They think the fast-fading mainstream media will save them.
Chuck and Nancy have learned a pretty important lesson: Don’t underestimate President Donald J. Trump during deal-making time. Just hang on to your belongings and hope you make it out with some shred of dignity intact.
President Donald Trump Pledges to Nominate A Woman as Next Supreme Court Justice
It’s going to be a woman.
President Trump revealed that he plans to nominate a woman as his next Supreme Court nominee during a rally on Saturday in North Carolina. The nominee, if confirmed, would replace longtime progressive judge Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who passed away on Friday.
Reports indicate that President Trump plans to announce the identity of a SCOTUS nominee on either Monday or Tuesday. He suggested as such during his North Carolina rally, confirming that the nominee would be a woman. The crowd could be heard chanting “fill that seat,” indicative of the strong desire among conservatives for President Trump to exercise his constitutional duties and advance a nominee.

It will be a woman!"

Amy Coney Barrett and Barbara Lagoa are considered to be strong candidates to fill the nomination, with the former almost being picked in 2018 to fill the vacancy ultimately filled by Brett Kavanaugh. Barrett is reportedly considered a front-runner in the selection process.
President Trump also cited the constitutional basis for nominating a Supreme Court justice, pointing out that Article 2 of the Constitution placed the imperative upon him as President to do as such. Republicans control both the White House and the Senate, a crucial difference from the divided government of 2016 when President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland was blocked by the Senate.

Democrats are guaranteed to fight furiously to block the confirmation of any Supreme Court nominee advanced by President Trump, with Chuck Schumer himself saying that he wouldn’t accept the possibility of any new justices while Trump is in office, even if it’s during his second term.
Tentative confirmation proceedings, which will occur in the midst of the Presidential election, have the chance to make Brett Kavanaugh’s wild confirmation process look like a gingerly walk in the park.
