GOP considers canceling August recess to salvage agenda – WE NEED TO HELP PRES TRUMP GET HIS AGENDA COMPLETED!



Alarmed by the stalemate on healthcare reform, lack of progress on tax reform and appropriations bills that are far behind schedule, Republican lawmakers across Congress are increasingly willing to consider canceling the month-long August recess.

Senate Republican negotiators reported that they are not close to a deal on healthcare reform and that scheduling a vote by July 4, which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has pushed, is likely unrealistic.

That impasse has held up work on a budget resolution, which is necessary to move tax reform and the annual appropriations bills.

Once Republicans vote on a budget resolution for 2018, it will wipe out the special vehicle they plan to use to pass healthcare reform with a simple majority vote — a vehicle that was set up by the budget resolution for 2017.

Lawmakers calculate there are only 45 legislative days until the end of the fiscal year, on Sept. 30.

“We are at sea”

– Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, following the legalization of gay marriage.
The United States of America has been a beacon of freedom, hope, and progress for the last 240 years. What started as a bold experiment in democracy has become the greatest nation the world has ever seen. Together, we have conquered technological hurdles, improved life for much of the world, and remained true to the values that inspired us to break away from British rule so many years ago. While other world powers fall, the U.S. remains. Our flag stands as a testament to the principles of liberty…and the sacrifices necessary to keep those principles upheld.

Unfortunately, all good things come to an end.

There has always been a push-pull dynamic at work in American politics. Opposing forces collide in Washington just as intended by the framers of the Constitution, hammering out an acceptable middle ground that (theoretically) represents the will of the people. For more than 200 years, that dynamic has worked to keep this nation great. Perfect? Never. But since the conclusion of the Civil War, America’s future has always appeared bright.

That’s not true anymore.

Today, the future of the United States is in jeopardy. Not from foreign threats but from within. We are a nation in fast decline, throwing our principles over the side of the boat as quickly as we can. Our culture is in disarray, having been transformed and distorted by Hollywood and the liberal media. Our values have gone topsy-turvy. Christians are out; gay marriage is in. Independence is out; welfare is in. Truth is out; propaganda is in. Instead of championing free speech and a government by the people, we seem more interested in being told what to do, what to say, and how to think.

The Constitution – that divinely-inspired anchor that has kept America grounded in a series of inalienable rights – has been stomped underfoot by dictators in disguise. Unelected judges thwart the will of the people with constitutional interpretations that defy legal analysis. Congress ignores the mandates imposed on them by the voting public. And the president (Written when Obama was in office) chooses to ignore the law whenever it suits his agenda, chipping away at democracy with every day he spends in the White House.

Republican Baseball Practice Shooting Only the Beginning

Remember when the Obama presidency, the experts in the executive branch, his minions in Congress, his minions in the media and his minions on the streets tried to convince America that the Tea Party movement, military veterans and supporters of the Republican Party were capable of violence, and that we were somehow all a bunch of domestic terrorists?  Yet, the violence from the right-wing never manifested as the liberal left predicted.  Tea Party rallies were peaceful, and no mass shootings by Republicans ever happened.  When mass shootings did occur, the shooters always turned out to be Democrats.  But, the media conveniently didn’t discuss that part of the news.
