The consequences of the partial government shutdown are mounting ― for national parks, airports, food inspections, emergency preparations and a host of other services. Some 800,000 federal workers missed their first paycheck on Friday, prompting fears among many of taking on debt to pay for food, medication, rent and loans.

 

Republicans are also losing the battle for public opinion amid the partial shutdown, which is now the longest in history

 

Fifty-three percent of Americans surveyed said Trump and the GOP are at fault for the shutdown, while only 29 percent said Democrats are to blame, according to a Washington Post/ABC poll released Sunday.

The Mueller investigative team was granted authority to investigate whatever perceived criminal activity might surface along the way. 

 

An investigative timeline that we the citizens  might want to view from two different excellent investigative  news sources

The Trump-Russia scandal—with all its bizarre and troubling twists and turns—has become a controversy that is defining the Trump presidency. 

 

The FBI recently disclosed that since July it has been conducting a counterintelligence investigation into possible coordination between Trump associates and Russia, as part of its probe of Moscow’s meddling in the 2016 election. 

 

 It’s tough to keep track of all the relevant events, pertinent ties, key statements, and unraveling claims. So we’ve compiled what we know so far into the timeline below, which covers Trump’s 30-year history with Russia.  

 

We will continue to update the timeline regularly as events unfold.

SUPPORT for the wall is GROWING... NOT falling !!

 

AND Border Security has ALWAYS been a 70-80% support issue among the American population... Donald Trump is beginning to CONVINCE the people that Border Security IS THE WALL, and The WALL, IS BORDER SECURITY !!

The GOP had 2 years to pass a spending bill that included Trump's $6 billion.  They didn't have the votes.  Democrats are not going to vote for a supposedly Republican initiative that the Republicans wouldn't vote for.  That's stupid.  Obviously not even the Republicans really want the wall.  This is entirely about putting on a show, playing politics, running interference from the business-as-usual revolving door special interest antics going on in D.C. without interruption since Trump took over in the White House.  Nothing has changed except the level of noise.

The Border Patrol says a wall won't work, because people can build ladders out of scrap wood, and they do.  They have piles of them collected along the fences we have.  Very low tech, very low cost.  The wall is barely an obstacle.

Reckless conservatives spend too much effort pulling money out of the economy in the effort to shove reckless privatization down the throat of Americans which in essence is a huge tax increase.

All of the workers should be on the jobs because they are all essential and should be earning their money on the job that they will eventually receive HOWEVER it's best to have people on the job because they know what they are doing and they know what needs to be done UNLIKE  ALEC Trump the Rump and his blind followers in the house and senate.

How can people blast Trump but not the entire ALEC GOP which he represents as the party stands by this president. Conservatives are the most reckless spenders of our tax dollars ever! 

While conservatives are keeping America distracted with a wall, arresting thousands of innocent immigrants and screwing government workers out of their wages how many ways have they declared war on America? And throwing Republicans under the bus along the way.

--- War On 24/7 Single Payer Medical Coverage 
--- War on public education and Higher Education 
--- War On Social Security Insurance 
--- War on the economy through Supply Side Wreckanomics 
--- War against women 
--- War on the VA and Veterans Benefits 
--- War on Voters Rights = VOTER SUPPRESSION http://www.fairvote.org/irv/ Let the voters decide. Voters demand a vote on the next ballot. 
--- War on strict gun regulations 
--- War On National Monuments/Parks 
--- War on the press 
--- War on the USA Postal Service 
--- War On Environmental Cleanliness 
--- War On USA Jobs through outsourcing, Free Trade Agreements and Leveraged Buyout Scams 
--- War for Oil Control Worldwide 
--- War on truth about global warming/climate change http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2010/03/30/174616/koch-denial-machine/

 

Despite being less than one third of the population, white men still hold a majority of elected positions nationwide.


Now is the time to exert the moderate female influence on America! Moderate Women Voters is the largest block of voters nationwide. Women do yourselves a favor ----- GO VOTE!


Term limits should be written this way: 

Replace 90% of incumbents every voting cycle with moderate women across the board. 


Conservative women politicians vote identical to Conservative Men politicians = not smart and vote against women.

Middle Class Largest Voting Block

 

Middle class voters we are the largest voting block in the USA.

 

Legislators are not in office to make a governor or president successful they are in office because we the taxpayers pay them to work for us. This president and too many governors are working for an outside interest which taxpayers cannot afford. 

 

The newest president is not a republican. He is a libertarian working for the Koch inspired anti American Legislative Exchange Council Party aka ALEC.
