Nobody looks good in the government shutdown saga. Nobody’s willing to give in on the one target of contention: the border wall. President Trump won’t sign a deal that doesn’t include it and Democrats won’t offer a deal that does include it. We’re at an impasse.
The President reiterated his commitment to building the wall by saying he would be willing to look at a pro-rated budget for the wall if Congress wants to send him a short-term fix for the shutdown. That way, at least government employees can get a paycheck or two while they wait for negotiations to end.
I’d be shocked if it happens. The Democrats simply won’t budge. They think the wall is their kill shot on the President’s 2020 reelection. Not building it would strike a major blow to his chances. Even a small concession like this seems unlikely.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
