WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday said Republicans will move on immigration legislation backed by President Donald Trump after lawmakers finish with the current budget deal.
The successful Syrian army operation to liberate Abu-Duhur airbase left a large enclave (pink) controlled by al-Qaeda and ISIS fighters in east-Hama. Further advances towards Idleb have been halted for now to clean up the cauldron that could otherwise create future troubles behind the lines. Most of the al-Qaeda/HTS aligned Takfiris are though to have […]

There is something strange about repeating the word ‘shutdown’ so many times. There are people who get things stuck in their head, and compulsively repeat those things. Or is this just Donald Trump’s idea of manipulating his viewers, or Congress? The reason behind his odd behavior may, like so many other oddities, never be known.
Just a double-dog dare?

There will be no shutdown. Too many people in Congress are very worried about how voters are feeling about their dismal progress on anything. Too many are seeing their first paychecks and realizing the beautiful tax cut is not going to pull them out of the hole they are in. Too many more are seeing jobs disappear. This is not a good time to get voters riled up. November looms.

Are you feeling great yet? That may be all you will get from Donald Trump. A good feeling and very little else, because Donald Trump knows what to say, but not what to do.
It was close, but for Roy Moore, there was no cigar. Not for Donny either! Or Steve Bannon. And Mitch McConnell? Well, it was victory of sorts, one that will haunt him through the mid-terms.The Dems want to replace him, and so do a lot of Republicans. Donny wants his gone, but then, Donny wants Congress gone, and most of this staff.
OPINION: If someone told you they could pull the tablecloth off your full laden dining room table, would you let them?
Ryan Zinke, aka ‘Stinky’, wants to shrink public lands for who knows why. Perhaps he thinks the federal government is the problem. Too much land is reserved for the future Americans to enjoy. Maybe he mistakes Teddy Roosevelt for Franklin. Maybe he’s just a nut. Whatever the reason, the new tactic among the folks who want to reverse everything is not to eliminate national monuments, but shrink them down to size. Which is ridiculous. Most of the land is in remote areas, it is spectacularly beautiful, and turning it into toxic waste dumps by drilling oil on it will only yield marginal energy. It will not make us energy independent. It will make some oil jobbers rich, but only if the price of oil rises.

Too bad for Donald Trump. I guess Time did not call him after all. Perhaps his own team is making them in an effort to please him? Maybe these are narcissistic dreams brought on by Big Macs and other fast food?
