President Donald Trump’s White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and Vice President Mike Pence reportedly said Saturday that Democrats led by Nancy Pelosi are blocking a bill to provide pay for the Coast Guard.
Lack of pay for the Coast Guard — which does not exist under the Department of Defense, which is funded — is a Democrat talking point in their failed efforts to end the government shutdown. Pelosi is refusing to consider President Trump’s latest compromise offer, which would provide amnesty for DACA recipients in exchange for a border Wall.
The White House’s assertion rings true, if history is any indicator.
Concerned about U.S. Coast Guard forces losing a paycheck in the partial government shutdown, President Trump personally urged his team to find a solution that would allow the administration to make this week’s $75 million payroll, according to officials.
Trump stepped in on Wednesday, calling on top lawyers and staffers to determine if the Coast Guard could make payroll despite being included in the shutdown that has impacted about 25 percent of the government, including the Department of Homeland Security, which houses the Coast Guard.
Biden Shadow Secretary of State Urged Support of Iraq War in 2002
Meet the new boss, the same as the old boss.
Joe Biden is yet to be certified as the President-elect, but that hasn’t stopped from from touting tentative cabinet picks.
Without exception, his cabinet appears to be largely liberal globalists with a lengthy track record of supporting the failed policy proposals of the 2000’s and 1990’s.
Biden’s Secretary of State pick, Antony Blinken, urged the then-Delaware Senator to support the disastrous Iraq War as a policy advisor to Biden in 2002.
Blinken advised Biden to vote for the Iraq War. Also said US failed by not sending more troops to Syria. https://t.co/BisdYmdAuN

Blinken would go on to create an establishment political consulting company that secured cozy lobbying deals with Big Tech and a pharmaceutical giant during Donald Trump’s presidency.
TONY BLINKEN co-founded a consultancy @WEAdvisors that launched in 2018 to help clients navigate DC.
It doesn’t disclose most clients’ identities, but has acknowledged working with an unidentified drug maker & a Big Tech firm it helped with US-China trade https://t.co/cj4mKJbnBM

Journalist Glen Greenwald pointed to Blinken as a textbook example of a neoliberal corporate Democrat, infamous for touting a Beltway elite agenda largely disliked by the general public. In similar fashion to neocon warhawk John Bolton, it appears that Blinken’s support for the most disastrous foreign policy mistake in American history isn’t going to prevent him from sauntering into the avenues of power, if he ends up getting confirmed as a President Biden’s Secretary of State.

Blinken would go on to support Barack Obama’s disastrous regime change operation in the 2011 Libyan Civil War, setting up the North African country for a decade of instability and eventually becoming a trafficking hub for exploited migrants seeking to reach Europe. Blinken was a National Security Advisor to the Vice President at the time.
If Biden ends up getting inaugurated, President Donald Trump will become the first US president in decades not to engage the United States in a new foreign conflict in office. (Bill Clinton and Barack Obama instigated US involvement in wars in Yugoslavia and Libya respectively.
