Here's Nancy Pelosi's plan to corner Trump and trap Mitch McConnell using his own legislation

MATTHEW CHAPMAN, ALTERNET
02 JAN 2019 AT 22:47 ET

In less than 24 hours, Nancy Pelosi will be sworn in as Speaker of the House. And her first immediate challenge will be how to break President Donald Trump’s childish federal government shutdown over his border wall.

As it turns out, Pelosi has the perfect plan to trap Trump and the Senate GOP.

On Wednesday, flanked by incoming House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Pelosi told reporters the first thing her House would do:

In other words, Pelosi plans to introduce and pass the same funding bill that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) shepherded through the Senate by voice vote two weeks ago — which happens to not include funding for Trump’s wall!

By passing this bill in the Senate but blocking it in the House on Trump’s order, Republicans boxed themselves in. They cannot easily claim that their own bill they just voted for in the Senate is soft on border security. Nor can they pin the blame on Pelosi for not retaking up the alternative House bill that included Trump’s wall funding, because that bill was rejected by the Senate.

Isn't it time to start taking to the streets about the Gov. shutdown to put pressure on Trump?



As long as everything is quiet and low key and there is no pressure Trump is going to think he can keep this going. Can't MoveOn and other organizations signal members to start taking to the streets in mass numbers?

MSNBC conservative says Trump can't possibly win wall showdown: 'Dems have no reason to negotiate'

President Donald Trump has boxed himself in with demands to fund his border wall, according to panelists on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

The president forced a government shutdown in an attempt to pressure Democrats into funding the wall, but co-host Mika Brzezinski said the Republican Senate majority shows little interest in approving the bill.

“There is some reporting or some sense that we have that Republicans are really frustrated that they are in this position,” she said. “They’re trying to translate for the president and he keeps doubling down on his stupid wall that nobody wants.”

Baptist minister slams Jerry Falwell Jr for 'disaster' promise to put Trump over Jesus

ASouthern Baptist minister has spoken up to “vigorously critique” an interview in which evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr. said that he would support anything President Donald Trump decides to do as president.

Alan Cross is a Southern Baptist pastor in Montgomery, Alabama.

“Wow,” was his first response to Falwell’s interview with the Washington Post.

He then went on to analyze how Falwell’s position was a “clearly articulated” version of the “approach German Lutherans took as Hitler rose to power.”

Jerry Falwell Jr. slams homeless in bonkers interview praising Trump: ‘A poor person never gave anyone a job’

Snip: Falwell explains that rich people are the people doing the most to enact God’s will on Earth because they create jobs..

Snip: Falwell says that evangelicals who don’t support Trump are the real immoral ones.

Snip: Among other things, Falwell claims that he doesn’t care about Trump’s rampant immorality because he was elected to help trim the national debt — even though the deficit has actually exploded under Trump’s watch.


PROOF Police Departments are CORRUPT

The Go Fund Me for Trump's wall has slowed dramatically

I know a few days ago it was averaging 3 million a day. I believe on day 4 it was around 12 million. 3 days later it's still under 17 million averaging just over 2 million a day now and I think has picked up less than a million today. I am guessing it ends up stalling out completely around 30 to 50 million, approx 3% to 5% of the goal. https://www.gofundme.com/TheTrumpWall
