  • Boots At The Border (Ryan's Delusional Press Release)

    Office of the Speaker Speaker.Gov ^ | May 1, 2017 | Speaker Paul Ryan
    From day one, President Trump has made it clear that securing the border is a top national priority. Republicans in Congress couldn’t agree more. That’s why this week, Congress will vote for the biggest increase in border security funding in a long time. Here’s what that means: More boots on the ground - Customs and Border Protection will see $12.2 billion in funding—$911 million above last fiscal year—which means more agents, enhanced technology, and better tools to stem the flow of illegal activities across our border, as President Trump requested in his own budget amendment. The end of “catch and...

    The President and Congress agreed to a spending bill to get the government through to September. President Chuck Schumer said: This agreement is a good agreement for the American people and takes the threat of a government shutdown off the table,” said... Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.). “The bill ensures taxpayer dollars aren’t used to fund an ineffective border wall, excludes poison pill riders and increases investments in programs that the middle class relies on, like medical research, education and infrastructure.” Since Republicans lost the presidency and the Congress in the last election, it is no surprise that this spending bill...

    The Golf Transcript ^ | 04/23/2017 | Staff
    Someone was obviously using a potato field as their personal driving range. According to a report at NBC News, McCain Foods of North Carolina is recalling frozen hash browns from stores in nine states because pieces of golf balls were found in the potatoes. The recall notice said the golf balls were “inadvertently harvested,” meaning some old golf balls were scooped up, along with the potatoes, by the farming rig.
  • Flashback (Last Week): McCain and Graham: Trump will regret letting Bashar al-Assad off the hook

    Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham are upset with the Trump administration signaling that removing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from power is no longer a top priority. During a trip to Turkey, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Assad's fate will be decided by the Syrian people. That sentiment was echoed by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who told reporters, "You pick and choose your battles. And when we're looking at this it's about changing up priorities and our priority is no longer to sit and focus on getting Assad out."

    CTH has fought this for years. The best thing we can do now is to try and assist people with information that will help them make forward decisions. It isn’t Paul Ryan’s fault and I’ll explain on that later. First the foundations: All DC Republicans and all DC Democrats are the DC UniParty. The DC UniParty is fueled by special interest donor lobbying money. The DC UniParty created Obamacare and the DC UniParty wants ObamaCare to remain in place. For six years we have attempted, and failed, to educate people on the UniParty. There is only one political party in...

    Conservative Treehouse ^ | 03/24/2017 | Sundance
    Senator Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz pushed the House Freedom Caucus to remain firm in opposition to President Trump. Having successfully defeated his opposition, Senator Paul pulls out the UniParty dance music and proposes solutions that can go no-where. As you watch this, remember the House and Senate schedule spring break is next week…. Ergo Paul says “legislation should be brought up next week” blah-blah-blah. This is a familiar UniParty ‘controlled opposition‘ trick. Go public and make the solution something you know has absolutely no chance of even being explored. Makes the abuser look great, and keeps the...

    LONDON (Reuters) - The British government has referred Rupert Murdoch's planned 11.7 billion pound ($14.4 billion) takeover of European pay-TV group Sky to regulators to decide if the deal is in the public interest. Media Secretary Karen Bradley told parliament it was important to seek advice from the regulator Ofcom on whether the deal would give Murdoch and his companies too much control of Britain's media, and whether the new owner would be committed to broadcasting standards.

    President Trump's economic agenda has "woken up the animal spirits" in the U.S., according to J.P. Morgan Chase & Co chairman and chief executive officer Jamie Dimon. During an interview with Bloomberg TV, Dimon said Trump’s pro-growth agenda has reinvigorated business owners and consumers alike. "[It] will be good for growth, good for jobs, good for Americans," Dimon said

    When I woke up Sunday, I thought the morning news shows would all be talking about the unusual, perhaps dangerous, decision of the Obama administration to wiretap the offices of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump. I’ve been watching Chuck Todd’s “Meet the Press” as I write this. There is actually little talk about this unprecedented wire-tapping and even less worry over it. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, usually thoughtful, just told Chuck Todd he found it is “shocking” that Trump disclosed the wiretapping claim on Twitter. But Friedman offered no shock that such a wiretap might have taken place! I...
  • Robbie Mook Is Asked If Clinton Team Met With Russia (Ralph Kramden-esque)

    Robbie Mook earlier tweeted out that the media should ask every Trump associate if they ever met with Russian officials. The host then, naturally (and surprisingly), asks if anyone from the Clinton team ever met with the Kremlin. It's clear that Mook did not expect this curveball question, and immediately starts stammering and contradicting himself ("It's normal to meet Russians"?) but quickly deflects and says (more or less) that it's important to keep the focus on Trump and not get bogged down in things like if Hillary Clinton ever met with Russians (aside from when she handed over 20% of...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., issued the following statement on the announcement of Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s resignation: “During Director Clapper’s tenure, senior intelligence officials engaged in a deception spree regarding mass surveillance. Top officials, officials who reported to Director Clapper, repeatedly misled the American people and even lied to them. In 2012 you saw the Director of the NSA make statements like ‘we don’t hold data on US citizens’ and ‘the story that we have dossiers on millions or hundreds of millions of people is absolutely false.’ These statements deceived the American public in...

    President Barack Obama signed the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act bill into law yesterday after the U.S. Senate voted for an extension of the President George W. Bush-era spy bill 73-23. The FISA bill gives the government clearance to tap into American citizens’ communications with people outside of the U.S. without a warrant, so long as it is done in the name of collecting foreign intelligence. Obama has previously stated his approval of the bill, saying that the U.S. needs such measures when dealing with national security. More specifically, it means that government entities such as the National Security Agency are...

    I guess they’re not called the fake news media for nothing. In what reads like a satirical opening paragraph, a reporter named Kelly Cohen of the Washington Examiner breathlessly writes, “The White House on Monday admitted that President Trump Sunday actually played more than “a couple” of holes of golf in Florida, as the White House originally claimed.”

    George Soros' alleged meddling in European politics has caught the attention of Congress. Concerns about Soros' involvement most recently were raised by the Hungarian prime minister, who last week lashed out at the Soros "empire" and accused it of deploying "tons of money and international heavy artillery." But days earlier, Republican lawmakers in Washington started asking questions about whether U.S. tax dollars also were being used to fund Soros projects in the small, conservative-led country of Macedonia.

    With the ascension of former Sen. Jeff Sessions to attorney general and several of his former staff installed at the White House and federal agencies, immigration policy experts are sensing a sea change in Washington. Advocates and policy staff of both parties half-jokingly refer to the "Sessions cabal" that has now found power in President Donald Trump's Washington -- a group that for years has found itself outside the mainstream on immigration policy in Washington and faced ire from their Republican and Democratic colleagues for what one sparring partner called "strident" positions.

    President-elect Donald Trump is considering tapping Fox News analyst Monica Crowley as his press secretary, according to Politico. Crowley, who is also a regular columnist for the Washington Times, was an early and vocal supporter of Trump. Politico noted that she warned Fox not to underestimate Trump when he launched his presidential bid last year.
