The GOP should be energized Mr President. @SpeakerPelosi @RepAdamSchiff & @HouseDemocrats are now so brazenly unhinged they've placed themselves above the law. @RepAdamSchiff is complicit! #Scampeachment
@SpeakerPelosi @RepAdamSchiff @HouseDemocrats The call was not only fine, Mr President but appropriate in every way. @TheDemocrats are doing what they've always done, PROJECTING. They are spinning today, pretending #Ukraine wasn't a corrupt country. No seriously . . .
Hello BO, hello Joe?👇
@SpeakerPelosi @RepAdamSchiff @HouseDemocrats @TheDemocrats Tweaker Pelosi's an out of control wreck. #DoNothingDemocrats will have "earned" the abject contempt of America for generations to come!

They are on deadline. Since one democrat proclaimed himself the grown up going into the room? Time to put up #AmericaFirst ! February 15th is now 16 days away.
The crisis has not changed Mr President, it's growing!

25% of the federal government is shut down due to democrats not funding it through regular appropriations. 800K federal employees, many of whom are democrat party union members. The @HouseGOP passed funding for it. @SenateDems refused to vote in favor of, just as Trump predicted.
So when this appeared today people in the DNCmedia went off, but let's look at the details shall we? First the article and one FABULOUS Wilbur Ross in question..

Wilbur Ross doesn’t understand why furloughed federal workers need food banks… via @RollCall
Let's not lose sight of context. The funding Trump's asking for border security and wall funding is $5.7 billion or less than 1/2 of 1% of the budget. Wilbur is looking at the big picture. He's Secretary of Commerce and responsible for ALL the American people, not just the 800K.

Today I joined a bipartisan majority in voting for @POTUS’ plan to secure our border & reopen the gov. The president asked me to support his plan & I did bc I agree w him that border security is unquestionably a national priority & that we must build a wall to secure the border.
@POTUS The president put forward a reasonable compromise to end this shutdown. This plan secures our border, funds the construction of a much-needed border wall, and reopens the federal government. #SecureTheBorder
In exchange, the president offered to provide a three-year extension of status limited to current DACA recipients and current enrollees in TPS.

#SchumerShutdown used the military for #DACAdreamers. They didn't make the deal. This year's #PelosiSchumerShutdown is using 800K employees..They should make the deal Sir, America's watching.
We proudly stand with you Mr President, we must have sanctuary for citizens. #AngelFamilies ⚖️🇺🇸 ❤️#HonorYourOath Congress
I could not love #CocaineMitch @SenateGOP & @HouseGOP more because they finally learned to not listen to the DNCmedia but to the voters! We The People expect Congress to #HonorYourOath. Thank you for leading Mr President ❤️🇺🇸⚖️

What agencies and services are affected by government shutdown? An updated look…
“As President, I have often said that I have no greater responsibility than protecting the American people,” ~ President Obama

The #Democrats are building their own wall, a growing wall of #BigGovernment statism, endless war, globalism & higher taxes that race toward #socialism.
#1 of #5
It's a wall that blocks us from our liberties including our right to own a gun & the right to engage in free speech. It’s a wall that censors & controls minds by means of lying, fake news corporate media.
#2 of #5
It’s a wall that protects a massively corrupt Deep State from receiving justice.

@SpeakerPelosi, tear down your despicable, fascist, blue wall & allow our @POTUS to construct a legitimate one along our southern border.

1⃣ Let's take a look at how the Senate works. I've spoken to a decent segment of certain political persuasions to warrant a fresh look. At first, specifically be concerning voting procedures. #Senate ⬇️

#SchumerShutdown #SchoolHouseRock #BuildTheWall @DNC #WeThePeople
2⃣ Aside from Revenue(tax) bills, bills can originate either in the House, the Senate or both simultaneously. When the bill has been polished it goes to a vote. There are two primary types of vote & one that is considered a countermeasure. #Senate ⬇️

#SchumerShutdown @DNC
3⃣ Out of Roll Call, Voice Vote & Division Vote, Voice is most used. The bill is brought to a vote & Senators verbally call off 'Yea' or 'Nay'. The presiding officer mentally tallies the verbal vote as best they can & announces the results. #Senate ⬇️

Congressional Record @SenSchumer

“President Trump you will not get your are not getting your wall today, next week, or on January 3”

Chuckie it’s not “his wall” it’s our wall and it’s not YOUR money, it’s ours.
#SchumerShutdown #fundthewall
According to @chuckschumer the Americans that want a wall are dogs? Throw us a bone? No Chuck @realDonaldTrump base isn’t less than 25% of America but the Senate approval rate is. #SchumerShutdown
You own this Chuckie @NancyPelosi said @realDonaldTrump didn’t have the votes in House and they proved you wrong, your approval rate is going to be about 10% of America. #SchumerShutdown…

Even with Big Tech's help, the #SchumerShutdown is still the top trending hashtag on Twitter.
Here is the #SchumerShutdown trending number one, right below a paid advertisement. Wow.
It was first reduced and now #TrumpChristmasShutdown is trending instead. Lol. Shocker.

From @DanCrenshawTX, a key read. I hope @realDonaldTrump asks the warriors in his own
party to go to WH to talk with him: Crenshaw and @RepGallagher from House, @SenTomCotton @SenJoniErnst @SenDanSullivan @SenToddYoung. Add @LindseyGrahamSC too.…
I know @LindseyGrahamSC isn’t a combat veteran like all the others (and I neglected to add soon to be Senator @MarthaMcSally) but Graham has spent years in the places where our troops deploy. This group is the best group of legislators to advise @realDonaldTrump on next steps.
And quick decision on new SecDef —@SenTomCotton or @JimTalent?— would keep focus on the border barrier and looming #SchumerShutdown.

Chuckles & Nancy didn't want the cameras in, they want another CR so they can pack it with 🐷 AGAIN.
The troops are funded. Shut it down Mr President.
Nancy has lied since 1987. Someone with some mad editing skills should do a loop of all of them saying they'd secure the border
#NationalSecurity is defending our borders. #FundTheWall 🇺🇸

THREAD: How would the Age of Reputation affect discourse in Social Media? (1/31)
(2/31) In the early days of the World Wide Web, there were few ways to validate that the person on the other end of a connection was actually that person. Becoming anonymous was easy, which was both powerful and frightening at the same time.
(3/31) A clever comic from the July 5, 1993 issue of The New Yorker proclaimed, "On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog."…

President Trump is PLAYING the democrats, Jack. He knows they will reject this deal that is MORE than generous to their interests, and show us again how irrelevant they are. Then R's will pass a more conservative #DACA bill with no dem support, claim ALL credit, and WIN!!! #MAGA
When Congress passed Tax Reform last month, @realDonaldTrump got every single democrat to vote AGAINST the American people. Democrats CAN'T do a deal with the President because they are so captive to their radical #Resist base. They lose every time!!! #MAGA
As the #SchumerShutdown demonstrated last weekend, @realDonaldTrump set up the democrats, pulled their pants down and showed us their ugly wrinkled butts. They are once again being played by an apex predator and a master negotiator. #MAGA

1. Chucky has again over played his hand on DACA and Dreamers. How? Simple. He wanted an up and down vote on a fix for DACA and Dreamers from @GOP and @SenateMajLdr. Chucky thinks it is good and will force @GOP to do or he will have justification for #SchumerShutdown number 2.
2. However, what Chucky doesn't understand is that the up and down vote is a two edged sword. By trying to commit @GOP and @SenateMajLdr to this, it also binds Dems to allow the up and down vote to proceed. This means if a bill is proposed, NO FILIBUSTER will take place.
3. Dems thus have to allow vote on a bill or they will have violated the agreement and the justification for #SchumerShutdown number 2 is gone and optics even worse than last shutdown.

Chuck Schumer thought this was going to play out very differently for him. Now, #SchumerSellout & #SchumerSurrender are trending, following several days of #SchumerShutdown. What made it different this time?

Simple --> @realDonaldTrump?
2. Didn't take long for the GOP to put this together. Come on. Everyone has to admit it. This is funny. These are #SchumerSellout & #SchumerSurrender quotes from leftists. They just aggregated them.
3. And just for the record, they didn't get "less than nothing" from the #SchumerShutdown turned #SchumerSurrender. They got the @GOP within the margin of error on the generic ballot. Lol. Losing doesn't inspire enthusiasm. Good news for him, there's still plenty of time.

[1] #AboutTheOpioidEpidemic : There was a 300% rise in annual #opioid overdose fatalities in the past 10 years, mostly correlated with the #Obama presidency (Here are numbers for #Mass) :
[2] #AboutTheOpioidEpidemic : What most have not noticed, the OD RATES are highest in battleground electoral states. Not blue, not red - Battleground. Very high correlation .
[3] #AboutTheOpioidEpidemic : Nearly 200,000 American lives have been lost in the #opioidEpidemic . Possibly even 300,000 . While the media howls about #Charlottesville which was tragic, the #opioidepidemic is still rarely mentioned.

A year in review on the WALL strategy. More detail
1. Trump runs and wins in Nov 8th,2016. His campaign promised among other agenda items a big beautiful Wall.

2. Nov 9th, 2016 the Dems and many gope promise there will be no Wall
3. Between Nov 9th, 2016 and Jan 20th, 2017 a very public and massive camapign was launched to push the concept that the Wall was not popular. Fake polls were employed, narratives were pushed that it wouldn't work, waste of money etc. All to get Trump to soften his stance.
4. Jan 20th, 2017 Trump takes oath of office. Promises strong protected borders. Jan 25th Trump signs EO to begin Wall

5. Jan 20th to May 2017. Wall funding is sought in the supplemental budget. The Senate obstructs. Gives money for border repair, prototypes but no Wall

Dems have really put themselves in a tough spot with this shutdown. The overwhelming majority in the country do not want to see a government shutdown for resolving DACA....
... but the Dem base has been so radicalized that inevitable Dem backtracking will result in tantrums among the base, which is pretty weak in terms of anything binding it together beyond "resist".....
... if the roles were magically switched and I were an immoral Dem I would love to see the "opposition" squirm with a shutdown that went on for a week or two, but that would be if it were purely about politics, and not other things, incl. military....

Normally, I avoid politics, but as a military spouse, here are my thoughts on the #governmentshutdown2018 A THREAD.
2. My wife and I are discussing what we plan to do in the event the shutdown isn't solved by the next pay check. We have savings, but they are for my sons' tuition fund for college. We only have $3,000. Why are we debating between their futures and buying food?
3. My parents have said if the worst happens, they'll help us, but a) we are in another country and b) why are my 60 year old parents supporting us still when we are 30?
