What’s up with the partial government shutdown on Day 19.

WHAT’S NEW TODAY

A White House meeting between President Donald Trump and congressional leaders was short, but not very sweet. It began with the president offering candy to participants but ended soon after with him walking out. Democrats said Trump had a “temper tantrum.” Republicans said the president calmly left without raising his voice. Amid the politics of the dispute, there was no sign of a resolution in sight.

Outside of Washington, the shutdown has curbed enjoyment of public lands. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service directed dozens of wildlife refuges to return staffers to work to make sure hunters and others have access despite the shutdown, according to an email obtained by The Associated Press. Wildlife groups complained that the Trump administration was trying to minimize the public impact to limit political blowback for the president.

QUOTES OF THE DAY

Trump tweet: “Just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, a total waste of time. I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier? Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye.”

Pelosi: “The president stomped out of the meeting when he said to me, ‘Will you support a wall?’ and I said ‘no.'”

WHAT’S COMING NEXT?

Trump heads for the Texas border on Thursday.

Uncertainty over federal funding for transportation projects is forcing some states to delay contracts for new road and bridge work while others are preparing for that possibility.

WHAT REMAINS CLOSED

Nine of the 15 Cabinet-level departments have not been funded, including Homeland Security, State, Transportation, Interior and Justice. Some iconic National Park facilities are shuttered as are the Smithsonian museums and the National Zoo in Washington. Nearly everyone at NASA is being told to stay home, as are most at the Internal Revenue Service, which is responsible for processing tax returns and issuing refunds, though the administration says tax refunds will go out during the shutdown.

WHO IS AT WORK, BUT NOT GETTING PAID

Some 420,000 federal employees whose work is declared essential are working without pay, including the FBI, TSA and other federal law enforcement officers. Some staff at the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security are also working without a paycheck.

    President Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen will testify before the House Oversight Committee, the first major move by House Democrats to haul in a member of Trump’s team connected to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, according to a schedule published by the committee.

    45 might not stay in office long enough to see his wall built.

    • Phoenix Rising on said:

      He’s not getting a wall built. Maybe in his little sandbox at Mara-lago, but definitely not on the southern border. As some say, he’ll call for a national emergency, it’ll wind up tangled up in the courts forever, and he’ll tell his trumpanzees that he tried, just to appease those do-do heads, and they’ll be fine with it, and he’ll move on without a second thought. This way he saves his orange face with his dumb supporters. There is always a method to his madness. He’s Don the Con, the ultimate grifter.

    • Passing Through!! on said:

      He knew that when he suckered the hillbillies into voting for him, afte Mexico’s President told him to kiss his ass he was backed into a corner. And at the direction of his presidential counsel Fox news this dummy has dug himself into an even deeper hole.

    • testify and say what??? he’s already testified to Mule Man Mueller what more can he say if he says something new or different then Mueller can charge perjury and with holding so what more can he say… you ignorant plantation negros crack me up

  3. Phoenix Rising on said:

    Lol!!!! Let the trumpanzees stick with their orange buffoon. He’ll continue to walk their dumb asses right off the cliff into bankruptcy, poverty and starvation, all the while, he has his parachute to save himself. They know damn well, he don’t give af about them.

  4. Passing Through!! on said:

    A trump voter was interviewed who said he’s at stake to lose 1 million dollars due to the shut down and I said good, I hope you lose every cent of it. But meanwhile, while everyone is distracted by the craziness of the shutdown 45 just hired 17 lawyers one for each one of his pending criminal investigations. Mueller’s investigation will wrap up end of February or mid March. This is nothing more than an attempt to turn eyes away from Russia too bad it isn’t working.

    • I heard he’s using his campaign funds got his legal bills. That should be illegal. This man is so corrupt. His fake election is the Biggest con job ever.

      • Passing Through!! on said:

        Good let the dummies who voted for him pay his legal bills I’m sure they don’t mind. With 17 lawyers that’s going to be one monstrous bill!

  5. [Mac] unfortunately the plantation Negros can’t ponder that, they haven’t been instructed to do so by their Democratic plantation overseers, don’t believe so? consider the same people Polosi, Schumer, Hilary, even Obama All called for a boarder wall, but not to worry after Trumps visit to the boarder he will declare a national emergency and shift funds from military to finance the wall. PS it seems odd that illegal immigration cost tax payers $160 b a year (CA teachers are going on strike one of the things their wanting SMALLER CLASS ROOM SIZES) yet a wall which if it only curtailed 20% of the crossings would pay that $5 b back in no time

  6. Mac Daddy on said:

    The Fed workers will get their pay back, the 4,000 families that lost a loved one in the last 2 years to an illegal alien’s criminal actions, will never get them back. Ponder that one you Plantation dwellers

    • @MacDad: MEXICO CAN PAY FOR THE WALL. Our President Promised to the American People that MEXICO would PAY FOR THE WALL. Trump did not involve the Democrats on this WALL subject when he campaigned. There are numerous ways to have MEXICO & Countries in SOUTH AMERICA TO PAY FOR THE WALL.. WE give those Nations South of the Border Millions every year that can be used to PAY FOR THE WALL. By INCREASING the TAX on Money Transfers to Countries South of the Bordon is another means to PAY FOR THE WALL..

    • Phoenix Rising on said:

      I reiterate! No wall for you!! Get Mexico to pay for it! That’s what the orange idiot promised his trumpanzees during his con job…oops, I meant campaign.

  7. stephanie Jones on said:

    I pray the Democrats stand firm and don’t give in. #45 has dictator tendencies, that is why he is so in love with Putin. Sorry the shutdown is hurting so many people, but lying #45 would have the country believe its only hurting Democrats as if the republicans lives in another country. Democrats, stand your grounds

    • Passing Through!! on said:

      @Stephanie, his people are probably hurting more but they will never admit it because they believed electing this sociopath would only hurt brown people.

      • Phoenix Rising on said:

        PT, yeah, his dumb ass people are truly hurting. Them country bamas and local yocal trailer trashers won’t be getting their food stamps either. But the good news…food pantries are always open.


  8. I love the Nancy and Chuck memes especially the classic American Gothic ( cornflakes box picture) however just over half of the people don’t agree with them

  9. hoodtechie on said:

    Good, i am with president trump all the way on this issue.to hell with the democrats they have no power. They just believe in the socialist agenda and kowtowing to every special interest group out there hope the president stands firm against these hypocites,he has my vote in 2020.thank god we finally have a president that have some stones, unlike that mom jean wearing predecessor obama,soft as cream jerk.

  10. Ted Gravely on said:

    I feel sorry for these federal workers being used as pawns in a stupid game of chicken. That orange puppet is a fraud. Don’t need a wall, we need a President.

  11. Instead of sitting down with both the Dems and the GOP and attempting to put a stop to the gov’t shutdown, the CLOWN-IN-CHIEF chooses to act like a petulant child by STORMING out of the meeting as soon as he sees HE IS NOT getting his way.

    The Dems SHOULD HAVE kicked Nancy Pelosi’s tired ass to the curb and selected someone fresh and new to be the Dems spokesperson.

    Chump has NO RESPECT for women.
    We are NOTHING but a piece of p—-y to him.

    Therefore, I do NOT see this shutdown ending anytime soon.

    My heart goes out to those federal workers who are NOT being paid at this time and
    don’t know when they will have another PAYCHECK coming to them.


  12. former Head of boarder patrol under Obama Mark Morgan who has spent time at the boarder
    (it was his job) calls BS on Nancy and Chuck walls do work every place along the boarder where a wall/barrier exist has stopped illegal entry N and C say “it’s a manufactured problem”
    I wonder if Ofc. Singh , or AF veteran Marilyn Pharis next of kin think it’s manufactured

  13. MEXICO PAY FOR THE WALL, NOT DEMOCRATS: Our President told us that Mexico would Pay For The WALL, not the Democrats, therefore his argument is without merit. The Press should take the argument to the President, that YOU TOLD THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THAT MEXICO WOULD PAY FOR THE WALL, NOW YOU ARE BLAMING THE DEMOCRATS. People we have been BAMBOOZLED.
