Bush calls on Trump, Democrats to ‘put politics aside’ and end the shutdown

Former President George W. Bush on Friday called on President Trump and congressional leaders to “put politics aside” and end the partial government shutdown, which is about to enter its fifth week.

“Laura W. Bush and I are grateful to our Secret Service personnel and the thousands of Federal employees who are working hard for our country without a paycheck,” Bush said in a social media post showing him delivering pizza to federal workers. “And we thank our fellow citizens who are supporting them.”

“It’s time for leaders on both sides to put politics aside, come together, and end this shutdown,” he added.

As of Friday, there was no sign the shutdown was about to end. Trump canceled a congressional overseas trip that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and other House members were scheduled for over the next week. That trip included stops in Brussels and Afghanistan.

Trump’s move came shortly after Pelosi called for a delay in the president’s State of the Union address, which is slated for Jan. 29, due to security concerns as the Secret Service and Department of Homeland Security are unfunded due to the shutdown. Republicans rejected Pelosi’s move as a political stunt and said the Secret Service was able to handle the event.

Nancy Pelosi has a blank check, and she’d rather spite Trump than cash it

The president and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., have made it abundantly clear that this is all a performance to them.

Trump had two years of Republican control of the House and Senate and failed to prioritize his premier campaign promise: increased border security. A GOP-controlled Congress didn’t pass so much as an e-verify expansion bill, let alone secure funding for his wall. He waited until the eleventh hour before he lost control of the House to stamp his foot and demand last-minute funding for the wall. He then shut down the government and declared it an act of bravery.

In theory, Trump handed a blank check to Pelosi. Trump owns the shutdown, and he needs to end it. For $5.7 billion in wall funding, Pelosi can ask for almost anything she wants.

But she hasn’t. Rather than secure the fates of 700,000 Dreamers and demand that the president grant them amnesty in order to achieve his beloved wall, she’s simply sneered in his face, glowing in the approval of the #Resistance for hurting Drumpf’s feelings and refusing to give him what he wants. You want your wall? Well you can’t have it, loser! Take that, President Cheeto!

Think about it. Pelosi has a blank check that costs a mere $5.7B, a drop in our multi-trillion dollar budget. Yet

Nancy Pelosi has a blank check, and she’d rather spite Trump than cash it

The president and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., have made it abundantly clear that this is all a performance to them.

Trump had two years of Republican control of the House and Senate and failed to prioritize his premier campaign promise: increased border security. A GOP-controlled Congress didn’t pass so much as an e-verify expansion bill, let alone secure funding for his wall. He waited until the eleventh hour before he lost control of the House to stamp his foot and demand last-minute funding for the wall. He then shut down the government and declared it an act of bravery.

In theory, Trump handed a blank check to Pelosi. Trump owns the shutdown, and he needs to end it. For $5.7 billion in wall funding, Pelosi can ask for almost anything she wants.

But she hasn’t. Rather than secure the fates of 700,000 Dreamers and demand that the president grant them amnesty in order to achieve his beloved wall, she’s simply sneered in his face, glowing in the approval of the #Resistance for hurting Drumpf’s feelings and refusing to give him what he wants. You want your wall? Well you can’t have it, loser! Take that, President Cheeto!

Think about it. Pelosi has a blank check that costs a mere $5.7B, a drop in our multi-trillion dollar budget. Yet she’d rather spite Trump and leave hundreds of thousands of government workers without paychecks than actually cash in her potential prize.

The generous conclusion here is that we’re being ruled by children. The honest one is that we’re ruled by tyrants.

Our corrupt ruling class would rather posture to their bases than actually win anything for them. The shutdown’s economic costs aren’t just threatening our gross domestic product and stock markets. There are actual lives in financial and physical danger.

The shutdown will put the safety of the border, the very entity the president shut down the government to protect, in real jeopardy if it continues. The shutdown has effectively halted all Border Patrol training, and because most Department of Homeland Security recruiters are furloughed, the department is hemorrhaging staffers without hiring new ones.

If the shutdown continues for another week, federal district courts will run out of funds, halting civil proceedings. Federal workers will go a second pay cycle without a check.

States are clamoring to issue February food stamp funds to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program recipients early, as the program has no proper funding past January. By March, the 38 million SNAP recipients — the majority of whom are children, elderly, or disabled — will likely receive no funding for food.

All of this ignores the businesses, from Walmart to local grocers, who rely on SNAP spending and customers who are federal employees without pay for their revenue.

And according to congressional staffers talking to McKay Coppins at the Atlantic, the politicians orchestrating the whole charade couldn’t care less. Coppins reports:

I spoke to one congressional staffer who wondered aloud whether it might take a stressed-out air-traffic controller causing a plane crash to bring an end to the shutdown. And several aides worried that some kind of terrorist incident would end up serving as the catalyst to get the government up and running again …

Even if some of their worst-case shutdown scenarios remain unlikely — there are still plenty of paths forward that don’t include body counts — the defeatism on display is revealing. It exposes the extent to which the latter-day crisis of faith in America’s core political institutions has infected even the members of the institutions themselves.

On Wednesday night, I spoke with a Democratic House aide who confessed that she was ambivalent about the shutdown. The battle had unified her party, with Democrats linking arms in defense of their ideals and in defiance of Trump. Polls suggested that a majority of Americans were with them, and that the ‘optics’ of the fight were good. ‘While it may be horrible for the country,’ she said of the shutdown, ‘it’s fine for the party.’

I’ve already made the case that the government is an unreliable employer, and the shutdown demonstrates the number of agencies, from the Transportation Security Administration to the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, that must be privatized, downsized, or abolished completely. But those should be thoughtful, intentional decisions, not based on political posturing that punishes and blindsides millions of average Americans as collateral damage so our wealthy overlords can pander to their fans.

Trump needs to sit the speaker down and offer to fill that blank check with something significant enough that she can call it a win. Pelosi needs to accept the political opportunity of strong-arming Trump into a valuable concession that could help, say, 700,000 people in legal jeopardy who have already assimilated with our culture and contributed, as well as the moral cost of continuing this shutdown, all to keep a few billion bucks from the president’s hands.

BuzzFeed’s story depends on Trump being heard on tape

BuzzFeed’s extraordinary report last night suggests that President Trump conspired to induce perjury and obstruct justice. It has excited many Democrats. But even if BuzzFeed is correct in its central assertion — that two federal law enforcement sources say Trump told his former attorney, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress — I’m not convinced it’s a major problem for the president. Unless, that is, law enforcement has audio recordings of Trump or his most inner circle speaking to that effect.

The key here is the burden of proof. According to BuzzFeed, he “personally instructed [Cohen] to lie” to Congress about when the Trump organization ended its effort to build a hotel in Moscow. If this is true, Trump would appear to be guilty of at least three federal criminal offenses: obstruction of justice, perjury, and conspiracy.

But it’s not enough for prosecutors to believe this to be true; they must be able to prove it. And from BuzzFeed’s report at least, it’s not at all clear if they have the means of doing so.

BuzzFeed claims that emails and interviews from Trump organization staffers have corroborated investigators’ belief in Trump’s guilt, but that’s unlikely to be enough to prosecute. What investigators need is a forensic, unimpeachable link that ties Trump to an unlawful conspiracy.

I sincerely doubt

Trump says he will make a ‘major’ announcement on Saturday about the border and government shutdown

<!– –>

President Donald Trump speaks to the media as he departs the White House in Washington, DC, on January 14, 2019 en route to New Orleans, Louisiana to address the annual American Farm Bureau Federation convention.

President Donald Trump said he will make a “major” announcement on Saturday about the border and ongoing government shutdown.

The president did not provide any further details on what he would discuss on what is set to be the 28th day of the partial government shutdown. The White House press team offered no further guidance to reporters when asked about the president’s tweet late Friday.



The government shutdown faces mounting lawsuits, including over 'involuntary servitude'


The shutdown is the result of Congress’s inability to pass a short-term funding bill for the government that Trump would be willing to sign.

The president has insisted that such a bill contain more than $5 billion in funding to build a border wall. Democrats have refused to agree with that demand.

Trump cited the shutdown when he canceled his trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland next week. He also called off sending his delegation to the meeting, “out of consideration” of the 800,000 workers not receiving pay because of the shutdown. Press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement that Trump wanted his team to be available to “assist as needed.”

Earlier Thursday, the president postponed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s planned overseas trip with other members of Congress to visit U.S. troops in Afghanistan, shortly before they were scheduled to depart on a military plane. Trump said the trip would be rescheduled when the shutdown ends.

That postponement came a day after the California Democrat sent Trump a letter, urging him to either reschedule his upcoming State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress or deliver it in writing because of the shutdown.

(CNN)It has been more than three weeks since the public last saw first lady Melania Trump, who after returning from a surprise Christmas trip to visit troops in Iraq with President Donald Trump on December 27, has all but disappeared from the radar.

White House denies Pelosi ‘leak’ charge, as details from Kabul cable raise questions over claim

Pelosi's office accuses Trump team of leaking commercial travel plans made after military plane was canceledVideo

Pelosi’s office accuses Trump team of leaking commercial travel plans made after military plane was canceled

The House speaker’s office has accused the State Department of leaking delegation travel plans to fly to Afghanistan commercially after the president denied a military plane; Peter Doocy reports from Capitol Hill.

The White House on Friday adamantly denied House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s claim that it leaked plans for a delegation’s proposed commercial flight to Afghanistan, as details from a State Department cable cautioning her office about the trip raised further questions about the allegation.

Pelosi’s office, however, maintained that the administration had in fact leaked the details to the media.

PELOSI SAYS TRUMP DERAILED TRIP PLANS AGAIN WITH LEAK; WHITE HOUSE CALLS CLAIM ‘FLAT OUT LIE’

“We were contacted by reporters this morning with multiple Administration sources saying that the CODEL was proceeding on commercial air,” spokesman Drew Hammill told Fox News.

Hammill had said earlier Friday that Trump endangered the delegation by first publicizing the trip when he denied the delegation a military aircraft due to the partial government shutdown, then leaking the plans — necessitating a postponement.

The White House called the leak claim a “flat out lie,” while another official called it “asinine.”

Pelosi’s accusation appeared to be at least partially challenged by details of a cable sent by the State Department in Kabul to Washington recommending she postpone the travel.

Fox News is told that the cable cited Afghan media reporting about the president’s suggestion to fly commercially. The cable, according to sources, noted the delegation had requested authorization to purchase 17 tickets over unclassified systems and advised that their travel would not be a secret. Urging her to postpone, the cable also noted that because few airlines fly into Kabul, their arrival time would also be easy to predict.

“When the Speaker of the House and about 20 others from Capitol Hill decide to book their own commercial flights to Afghanistan, the world is going to find out. The idea we would leak anything that would put the safety and security of any American at risk is a flat out lie,” a senior White House official said.

Mixed reaction on Capitol Hill after Trump grounds Pelosi's military plane amid the government shutdownVideo

Trump had initially denied permission for a military transport on Thursday, citing the historic shutdown and urging her to remain in Washington and negotiate a way out of the stalemate.

“Obviously, if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial, that would certainly be your prerogative,” he wrote in the letter, which came after Pelosi called for Trump to delay his State of the Union address amid the impasse.

Hammill said Friday that the State Department told them overnight that Trump’s announcement “significantly increased the danger to the delegation and to the troops, security, and other officials supporting the trip” before they learned about the alleged leak to the media.

Meanwhile, the head of the White House budget office issued a memo Friday instructing all agencies that: “Under no circumstances during a government shutdown will any government owned, rented, leased, or chartered aircraft support any Congressional delegation, without the express written approval of the White House Chief of Staff.”

Trump ramped up his criticism of Pelosi earlier Friday via Twitter, saying: “Why would Nancy Pelosi leave the Country with other Democrats on a seven day excursion when 800,000 great people are not getting paid.”

The contentious back-and-forth suggests that both sides are only digging in in their respective positions over the shutdown. Democrats and Republicans have been at a stalemate over funding for a wall on the southern border. Trump has demanded almost $6 billion in funding for a wall or barrier, but Democrats have balked at that request — and have only agreed to less than $2 billion for general border security.
