  1. #Release The Memo

    You still don't get it. This happened under the Obama admin in 2016. The next few weeks will be very interesting.
  2. Government Shutdown 2018

    What exactly was the poison pill in the spending bill? Funding the government or funding CHIP? Because that's all that was in that bill. How exactly are the dems taking a 'principled stand' for DACA when there isn't even a daca bill to vote on? Do you think this helps get the bill done or makes it worse?
  3. #Release The Memo

    The memo and the documents associated with it are classified. If you leak them you commit a crime and go to jail. That's why the House committee has to go through a process to release it and they did that today.The testimony Feinstein released was NOT classified. Because I doubt you will believe me here is proof: Feinstein's release was not illegal because the information wasn't classified. http://www.nola.com/national_politics/2018/01/trump_blasts_feinstein_for_rel.html Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee are considering using an obscure committee rule to bypass the executive branch's declassification process to release the classified memo on alleged surveillance abuses spearheaded by Chairman Devin Nunes. http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/20/politics/house-intelligence-nunes-fisa-memo/index.html That article goes through the process on what that committee had to do to declassify it. The House members had to go to a SCIF to read it! If you followed this story at all you'd know that. You have no clue what you are talking about.

    What do you think they did today? They passed it throughthe committee and it is goingto be released. The difference between them and Feinstein is they are doing it correctly so there is no question about the process.

    African American unemployment all-time low https://www.cnbc.com/2018/01/05/black-unemployment-rate-falls-to-record-low.html Hispanic unemployment all-time low http://money.cnn.com/2017/12/08/news/economy/ivanka-trump-hispanic-unemployment-rate/index.html Unemployment rate is at a 17 year low Mueller has nothing to do with this. Lobbyists. Obama pledged that for 8 years. Had to be that way because of the Byrd Rule. Otherwise the bill could not have passed. But I'm wiling to bet when it comes up for renewal it will.
  6. #Release The Memo

    It is supposedly a summary of documents turned over in the last few weeks from the DOJ and the FBI. These documents were subpoenaed back in September but never given over until a few weeks ago. These documents are all classified. If the report is as explosive as the representatives say it is then these documents need to be released as well. If they aren’t then Dems will just say this can’t be proven, etc. They are already starting with those talking points. I don’t know why anyone would not want to expose government corruption except if it damages them.

    Really? You can not like the wall but at least be honest. Here are campaing promises he kept: 1. Slash federal regulations 2. Lifetime ban on WH officials lobbying for foreign governements 3.Conservative justice to replace Scalia 4. Keep Gitmo open 5. Cancel Paris agreement 6. Cancel TPP 7. Create 10% repatriation tax 8. Reverse Obama EO on guns 9. Raise GDP over 3% 10. Lower taxes for corporations and individuals Those are just off the top of my head. There may be more. But to say he isn't 'keeping any promises' is wrong.
  8. Government Shutdown 2018

    This was taken before the vote last night. I'd like to see what a poll says now.
  9. Government Shutdown 2018

    No it is on Congress. It is their job to make laws not the presidents. We gave amnesty under Reagan and border security never happened. Not going to happen again.
  10. #Release The Memo

    The whole point of the memo is that the FBI, DOJ and US intelligence agencies were weaponized and used for political purposes. Those tactics.
  11. Government Shutdown 2018

    And the very same thing can be said for DACA. The spending bill and CHIP need to be passed right away, daca doesn't. Hell of a strategy Schumer. This plays well with idiot libs. People with common sense see how stupid this is. Still, 56% overall say approving a budget agreement to avoid a shutdown is more important than continuing the DACA program, while just 34% choose DACA over a shutdown. Democrats break narrowly in favor of DACA -- 49% say it's more important vs. 42% who say avoiding a shutdown is the priority -- while majorities of both Republicans (75%) and independents (57%) say avoiding a shutdown is more important. http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/19/politics/cnn-poll-shutdown-trump-immigration-daca/index.html
  12. #Release The Memo

    I already did. I called Jacky Rosen's office yesterday and was stonewalled about releasing the FISA memo and source documents. Why? Because she's a dem. I noticed you never answered my question. If it is true are you ok with Trump using the same tactics on his political rivals in 2020?
  13. Government Shutdown 2018

    The senate finance committee passed their own version but the funds needed to off set it weren't agreed to by the dems. You keep bringing up the GOP controls both houses but doesn't mean every bill in the senate can go through with a simple majority.
  14. #Release The Memo

    You can't argue the info wikileaks has presented is false because it's all been true. Your issue is that it has shined a light on how corrupt the dems are. Here's the difference between you and guys like myself and @halfmanhalfbronco. We would like to see if there is corruption ANYWHERE regardless of party. You are upset at wikileaks for showing how corrupt your party is.
  15. #Release The Memo

    So declassify the material. If it doesn't disrupt soucres or methods, which it shouldn't because domestice surveillance programs should already be legally declassified, then declassify the source documents. The rub is some of those sources and methods aren't declassified and we are being lied to about how we all are surveilled. That's kind of the point. I'm all for releasing all the source material and see if Nunes is lying or not. You have no idea if what he wrote is true or not. You are just claiming that it is slanted because hes gop. Let's say he's right for arguments sake. Are you ok with Trump doing the same thing to his political rivals in 2020? This isn't a partisan issue.
