  • Re: POTUS 45:47: I Never Said There Was No Collusion!

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...-wall-funding/

    Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) will break with President Trump and vote to reopen the government without funding for a border wall, his spokesman told The Denver Post editorial board.

    Gardner is one of three Republicans expected to vote to advance the "clean" funding bill.

    Gardner's spokesman told the Denver Post that the senator planned to vote for a "clean funding bill ... with no border-security funding attached."

    ...

    Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) are also expected to vote for the "clean" funding bill.

        Pfft. Kep you're losing your fastball. If you want to see plutocrats hauled into court in leg irons, the solution is mandatory minimums for anybody hiding assets for the purposes of avoiding taxes (10 years for beneficiary, 5 years for the accountants)!

              • I don't see what Republicans thought the upside to holding these two votes was. They will vote against a clean funding bill to reopen government. Explain that to their constituents.

                On the other hand, the Dems will vote against a bill that puts severe limits on legal immigration and DACA. Somehow, I don't think their constituents will hold that against them.

                  Donnie Chump is a lunatic, but he's a loon with sharp political instincts so its interesting to see how this is playing out. Simply put, there's no reason for him to pump the breaks on any of his lunacy until someone with leverage tells him no. These so-called conservatives in Congress were willing to roll over and fetch for him on command and the courts have been a 50/50 proposition (approved travel ban but slapped him down on DACA) so again no reason to compromise.

                  Now however he's facing a seasoned political operative in Pelosi who can check his agenda provided she keeps her caucus in line. This is probably the first time he's heard the word no since Stormy Daniels turned him down when he asked for seconds. I can envision him making a deal where they appropriate the 5.7Bn for border security and then he turns around and uses existing funds already appropriated beforehand to fix/build/fill in the gaps of the wall for a hundred miles or so and then he calls it a victory. You can also satisfy Pelosi's demand that the govt opens first by passing that bill on Monday and then the border funding bill the next day.

                    This has to be irking McConnell quite a bit. He's been eating Schumer's lunch for 2+years and now he appears to be losing his fastball because Pelosi has set up shop in Trump's head.

                          I don't get what Mitch is thinking, either. Maybe he thinks actually seeing the votes will break enough people on the crazy right out of their delusion that they have the stronger hand. I suppose if he was truly Machiavellian he could let the Senate pass both bills, thus allowing the Dump bill to fail in the House, have Dump veto the clean bill, and then take the Walk of Pity to 1600 and tell Dump "all I have to do to effectively end your presidency is override your veto, so, here's how the next 2 years are gonna go..."

                          That's what a John C. Calhoun or a Henry Clay would do. The Hill is not for the faint of heart.

                              Itch may be a scumbag but he knows when to keep his head down. I don't like his odds in a faceoff with Pelosi particularly because anybody who peels off (Gardner, Murkowski, Collins) for the sake of re-election makes him look bad while Pelosi's majority isn't based on 3 seats thus giving her more breathing room.
