Congress rolls out a plan to avoid a government shutdown, with votes expected quickly

Trump intends to sign border deal to avoid another shutdown

https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/13/politics/trump-border-security-deal/index.html

 

Well sign it, the best deal that ever will be reached.  Democrats had to compromise on their demand for how many can be detained at the border.

Interestingly, three months or so ago Trump had a bill that would have doubled or tripled the amount of wall money he wanted.

Every Day Is a New Low in Trump's White House

The president steps over bright ethical and moral lines wherever he encounters them. Everyone in America saw it when he fired my boss. But I saw it firsthand time and time again.

 

Andrew G. McCabe

7:00 AM ET

(........ In an exclusive adaptation from his book, The Threat, to be published next week by St. Martin’s Press, McCabe describes his encounters with President Trump and the steps taken to protect the FBI’s investigation into Russian efforts to influence the 2016 elections—and into the Trump campaign’s possible collusion with Russian actors. .....)

 

"..... In this moment, I felt the way I’d felt in 1998, in a case involving the Russian Mafia, when I sent a man I’ll call Big Felix in to meet with a Mafia boss named Dimitri Gufield. The same kind of thing was happening here, in the Oval Office. Dimitri had wanted Felix to endorse his protection scheme. This is a dangerous business, and its a bad neighborhood, and you know, if you want, I can protect you from that. If you want my protection. I can protect you. Do you want my protection?

The president and his men were trying to work me the way a criminal brigade would operate. ..........   

.... People do not appreciate how far we have fallen from normal standards of presidential accountability. Today we have a president who is willing not only to comment prejudicially on criminal prosecutions but to comment on ones that potentially affect him. He does both of these things almost daily. He is not just sounding a dog whistle. He is lobbying for a result.

The president has stepped over bright ethical and moral lines wherever he has encountered them. Every day brings a new low, with the president exposing himself as a deliberate liar who will say whatever he pleases to get whatever he wants. If he were “on the box” at Quantico, he would break the machine. ......

Wow - McCabe also tells CBS that Rosenstein's offer to wear a wire with the president was raised more than once and that McCabe took it to the lawyers at the FBI to discuss.

WHAT'S IN the Mega Border Security deal.

BARRIERS. - $1.375 billion in funds - Cannot be built in several parks or nature reserves. - DHS must consult with cities affected on design - at least until Sept. 30, 2019. Nothing can be built during consultations.

- Funds the 200 border patrol agents hired since Oct. - No new border patrol agents for rest of year. - Funds 600 new Customs agents for this year. - And funds additional recruiting to help fill some 600 open slots. So aim is 1200 Customs agents.

 
 
 
ICE in this deal: - Gets 112 new health staff at detention facilities - Must file weekly reports on detainees and a monthly report on family separations and minor referrals. - Sees increase of $95 million over last year for "custody operations" (3%)

IMMIGRATION COURTS in this border deal: - Funding for 50 new judges over last year's amount. - An additional 89 of last year's slots still unfilled. - Priority for hiring must be in highest workload areas.

 
 
HUMANITARIAN relief in this deal: - Total $414 mill, but having trouble seeing all of it at moment. Do see: 1. $128 mill for medical staff for Customs and Border Patrol 2. $40 mill for food, formula, diapers 3. $24 mill for increased transport b/t CBP facilities........

The Tennessee Valley Authority defies Trump,

votes to shut down two aging coal-fired power plants.

 

Enjoy the price suckers.

So what happens when everything is shut down and climate (nature) still don't do what all powerful man expects - have people slow down breathing to reduce CO2?

 

Well on the bright side, birds breathe and give off CO2, so wind power solves that problem.

100 people die from guns every day.

That’s a national emergency.

 

If Trump gets away w this border emergency declaration,

then a Dem President can declare a gun violence emergency

and institute universal background checks and an assault weapons ban by executive action.

Gun Control by Executive Order?

Congress has not been doing its job of oversight in treasonous territory.

It's time the executive branch has some accountability.

And that's why a majority of American voters put Democrats in control of the House.

I am sure that the Founders didn't imagine that a legal use of a presidential national emergency would be because the president's feelings were hurt by a tweet from Ann Coulter.

In two short years Ann Coulter has gone from being trump's top supporter to being his top critic.

The very same thing has happened to George Conway, the noted conservative Barrister, who also happens to be White House counselor kellyanne Conway's husband.

What exactly is going on here?

The sad part about this SNL parody of Trump’s Rose Garden announcement declaring a national emergency is that this is basically what really happened on Friday.

 Alec Baldwin did a good job with this satire.

But the sad truth of the matter is that the original was such an inane embarrassment or

 should I say, a bizarrely incoherent and pathetic rant that it was difficult to be funnier than trump who is obviously mentally and/ or physically incapacitated on a high level.

 And since he's the president of the United States, then the whole thing isn't really very funny at all.

With Ann Coulter it seems like it happened in the last 2 months.
