WASHINGTON—In a bold gambit to end the government shutdown, the House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, said on Saturday that she would bypass Donald J. Trump and negotiate directly with the Russian President, Vladimir Putin.

“I owe it to the American people to bring this shutdown to the swiftest possible conclusion, and so I’m avoiding the middleman,” she said.

Pelosi, who is scheduled to board a plane to Moscow Saturday night, said that she had not informed Trump of her plans to deal directly with Putin. “Whatever,” she said.

In an official statement, Putin said that he welcomed Pelosi’s overture and shared her desire to end the shutdown. “At some point, I’d like to visit Yellowstone,” he said.

"30 Democrats in Puerto Rico with 109 lobbyists for weekend despite shutdown"

Some 30 Democratic lawmakers left the government shutdown behind Friday on a chartered flight to Puerto Rico for a winter retreat with 109 lobbyists and corporate executives during which they planned to see the hit Broadway show “Hamilton” and attend three parties including one with the show’s cast.


The event is taking place in a seaside resort where rooms go for $429 a night. Food is being provided.

But the junket comes at an awkward time, on the day 800,000 federal workers did not receive their first paycheck of the shutdown, with many worried about basic living expenses like food.




HYPOCRITES! Every last one of the DC crowd, Rs and Ds alike.


Yeah I've got O.C.D. Old, cranky, and dangerous.

Everything will kill you, so choose something fun!

"Glim" - an abbreviation of "Glimmer"

In Ernie's context, he's presenting the two polarizing specters of DC optimism.

Saw snippets of this on the news. Pretty sure the trip was planned back in October or November, the ticket prices are $5,000 each, proceeds to be donated locally. On phone now so can't confirm this. Maybe someone else can?

I can read and comprehend "legal ease" language

And here I once thought in my teens - I wanted to become

I watched a segment on the Texas meeting..
I was not impressed to say the least...

CBP officers also showed Trump blown-up photos of tunnels
that were dug to get guns and drugs across the border.

Neither border patrol agents nor President Trump explained
how a border wall would help stop the flow of drugs
through tunnels and legal ports of entry.

McAllen Mayor Jim Darling, who is not affiliated with a political party,
tells TIME that even if it was not Trump’s intention, the roundtable
appeared to make the case for increased funding at
legal ports of entry instead of the wall.

“I thought that showed that ports of entry are working,” he says.
“I understand he’s trying to make a point, I’m a little theatrical myself,
most politicians are. I understand that, I understand why someone
would say ‘Okay, those were all confiscated at the point of entry,
so what’s that gotta do with people crossing the river?'”

Darling says he was glad that the President expanded
on the concept of a “wall” by mentioning it could include
further investments in areas like infrastructure and technology.


“You know it was kind of interesting, today the President said,
‘When I’m talking about a wall, I don’t just mean a wall,’
and I thought metaphorically that was true,
but it was nice to hear him say that


But then you have to remember ! Trump will call anything
great or small-- even a little more fencing-- His Wall ~
And I would bet there would be a section- very beautiful...
- A Monument-- with a Plague like on one of His golf courses...
Like the One Reading------ A River of Blood ! ~~~~~~ cool

Somewhere under the sun
This shutdown is all part of Trumps plan to try to get re-elected in 2020. Weren't the republicans in charge for the past two years? They had to wait until the election was over to make the wall a do-or-die priority? This all plays to Trumps ability to now place blame on Congress and the democrats for the shutdown so he doesn't soley take the blame for not accomplishing his campaign promise. In reality congress is under no obligation to pass Trumps campaign promises, the thousands and actually millions of Americans who are now suffering from this shutdown is his alone to bare. He says he understands what they are going through. Really, how naive does he think we all are, he's never wanted for a thing and yet he understands how folks who can't make their rent or mortgage payment or put food in the cupboards or gas in their cars feel. I just hope that folks remember and see how Trumps agenda to further his own interest and his "selfish stategy" really effects the people that he is supposed to be looking out for.

i agree with this.

Besides the fact <
there are other ways to come into America
whether by land-tunnels or the great blue Pacific Ocean...
And I did post pictures on
all the abandoned boats on
our local shores...
How far- ?
How wide - ?
HOW DEEP -?
How much will The Wall Continue to Cost
When we have other means at hand ?
Search the information and it might
lend another better ? direction..


they come because of all the freebies. as i've said all along and have not deviated. enforce the laws and take away the birdseed. LaRaza teaches them that we stole the land, right or wrong, they are taught that they will take the land back. They are not taking it back. We are giving it to them.

yes, Ernie, where I used to live was turning into a cesspool Couldn't go to the grocery store without all announcements being in spanish. WTF! You have a huge military presence walking around in your area. things are different. folks pass thru your area and settle in San Berdo/Riverside & L.A. counties. No education, many without skills. Remember stats can be presented anyway the statistician wants them to be.
Did you read where Newsom plans on medi-cal for all, including illegals?? so, yes, they will continue to come and now they have another good reason to do so.

Remember what Thatcher said, in part: Socialism is great til you run out of other peoples money.

Dora: Trump talked about securing the border long ago, so Did Schumer, Clinton & Obama and Hillary was telling the Europeans they need to secure their borders because of the problems, but she wants our open. Talk about hypocrits. (I noticed not one comment on those Democratic videos espousing border control, etc. & the cost of educating illegals that I posted) Facts hurt I guess. Ignoring them makes it go away.

Regarding the planned trip to PR, that trip could have been cancelled soon as the govt shutdown was announced. But, no, it's a free party/vacation for all on the backs of those same furloughed employees. Most lobbyists stand to make millions in exchange for what congress gives them & they give congress. Shame on both sides.

Again, I did not vote for Trump, I wish he would shut up, but I can't fault what is policies have done for OUR country (not just the dems country) so far. I don't agree with a wall. I don't see it working.
