Nancy Pelosi is Willing to Keep US ‘Government Closed Forever’ Before She’ll Fund Border Wall

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) declared that she will not negotiate border wall funding and will instead keep the “government closed forever.”

Asked by a reporter if having government shutdown will impede the Democratic Party agenda when she takes the gavel in January, Pelosi declared that “it’s just what we have to do.”

“Does he want to have government closed forever? What’s this about?” Pelosi asked.

On Tuesday, President Trump said that he would be proud to shut down the federal government if Democrats don’t agree to fund border security, especially the border wall.

“Let’s hope that there won’t be a shutdown of the government. That’s a very bad thing to do. Maybe the president doesn’t grasp that, but that is very harmful to our country,” Pelosi told reporters.

Pelosi flatly refused the $5 billion President Trump has requested towards a border wall.

“We’re not going for the $5 billion for the wall,” Pelosi said. “We simply are not.”

“[Republicans] do not have the votes to pass the president’s proposal — $5 billion dollars, whatever it is — for the wall,” Pelosi said. “Nothing is going to change in that regard.”

Nancy Pelosi Announces Democrat Plan to Go After Trump’s Tax Returns

During her weekly press conference, Nancy Pelosi announced a plan for congressional Democrats to target President Trump’s tax returns.

Pelosi promises action on Trump tax returns

Democrats are set to take power in January, taking over the House of Representatives and, essentially, grinding all congressional work to a halt. There are rumors floating around Capitol Hill that Democrats will immediately push for impeaching the President with what little power they hold in the House. (RELATED: Nadler Floats Impeachment, Says New Mueller Revelations Could Justify Removing Trump.)

Pelosi is feeling empowered and she let her confidence show by announcing the Democrats’ first target upon taking power: Trump’s tax returns. Here’s what she said:

Yes, there is popular demand for the Congress to request the president’s tax returns. [Ways and Means] will have their path as we go forward. I’m sure the White House will resist, and so the question is, where do we go from there?

Nancy’s gambit

Pelosi is taking a big risk here, dedicating congressional resources to obtaining Trump’s tax returns. She’s assuming she’ll find something. Last we checked, the last publicly available copy of Trump’s returns showed absolutely no wrongdoing. (RELATED: Rachel Maddow’s Ratings Tank After Trump Taxes Flub.)

Pelosi is right in assuming the tax returns will be tough to obtain. The IRS currently has them locked in a vault. (RELATED: IRS Creates New Vault to Hold President Trump’s Tax Returns.) The White House is going to fight tooth and nail to keep them in the dark as well. At best, we can expect a long, drawn-out court fight over the release of the documents.

Other legal threats to Trump

Pelosi’s promise to seek Trump’s tax returns isn’t the only legal conundrum Trump will face in the near future. Yesterday, the New York attorney general announced her office will be looking into the finances of the Trump Organization. (RELATED: Incoming New York Attorney General Letitia James Pledges to Go After Trump.) Additionally, the National Enquirer is now in legal hot water over covering up salacious news about the President.

When are they going to get to work and do their jobs rather then spend time and money going after the president? Never mind, I know the answer!

China introduces ‘social’ punishments for scientific misconduct

Researchers in China who commit scientific misconduct could soon be prevented from getting a bank loan, running a company or applying for a public-service job. The government has announced an extensive punishment system that could have significant consequences for offenders — far beyond their academic careers.

Under the new policy, dozens of government agencies will have the power to hand out penalties to those caught committing major scientific misconduct, a role previously performed by the science ministry or universities. Errant researchers could also face punishments that have nothing to do with research, such as restrictions on jobs outside academia, as well as existing misconduct penalties, such as losing grants and awards.

Jean-Claude's been drinking again


Jean-Claude Juncker ruffled hands through hair of the EU's deputy head of protocol as he arrived at summit

Shortly afterwards Mr Juncker brushed off his extraordinary confrontation with Theresa May - insisting they ended up 'kissing' after he explained he had not insulted her by calling her 'nebulous' and 'imprecise' .

The PM and the EU commission president had a 'robust' showdown in the full glare of cameras as she demanded to know why he had branded her with those words in a late-night press conference.

But as the summit in Brussels drew to a close this evening, Mr Juncker insisted Mrs May is a 'great friend' and the incident was down to a misunderstanding.

Here's something I thought I'd never see.

Pelosi asking the media and others in her party to back off the non-stop allegations against the President.
...and McCaskill lamenting the loss of men from the Dimwit party due to all the gender politics.

Are they finally starting to realize that constantly attacking Trump isn't working for them?

I can't figure out who's dumber, the lefty politicians or the people who report on them.
It's too close to call and no one cares enough to go into the idiot pit to measure which one made it to the bottom first.

I see how they are trying to play this, re blame tramp for the shutdown,
yet, don't see him baited at all. He was there to state that loud and proud.
They seem to be too simple to understand that.

As if it is a bad thing.

Many times they have cried wolf about this .gov shutdown thingy, only to resolve in a short period thereafter. Then providing all with back pay and the like.

It is high time someone shut it down and meant it. Stand their ground and actually wait it out, with no back pay, no anything. If you aren't in doing your job, then you either take your vaca or you go without.

and then we will finally see an end to this shutdown nonsense that seems so frequent now.

Any gov' shut down should start at the top with no back pay for the ones causing the shut down.
See how long it would take them all to settle their differences.
Trump's already not taking his, guess who else it would effect?

When Lt. Dan and Unca Walt form a new government, the above will be one of the two salient and unchangeable laws.

The second one:

Any time the nation is at war (which is defined as guys in uniform on our side getting shot at), every member of Congress must spend a minimum of one month in combat -- thereby earning the medal.

Uh...... and if they don't have a balanced budget the get 25% of pay.
Also they don't get lifetime healthcare or pensions. It should be an honor not a free for all.

Not only seal the borders those that come legally get no SS or aid of any type for 10 years for them or their familys.

Unfortunately, this is all a dream. The only people who can set these guidelines are THE SAME PEOPLE WHO WOULD BE BOUND BY THEM and they certainly aren't going to do that! The only way possible to gain these type of reforms is to physically remove them all from power and reboot the government....again, pipe dream.

Don't hate me for being realistic, I wish I was wrong but I don't believe I am

Remember when Obama tried to amplify the pain, by shutting national parks and other annoyances that had nothing to do with money (I don’t need a ranger to show me the trail, but it costs money to put up barrycades)

Trump should take a page,,

- no welfare checks, you guys want your EBT you might want to call Chuck and Nancy a lot
- no HUD, epa, dept of education etc.

And stick to your guns, go for the whole 50 billion. Let the gov waste be shut down so long without any negligible effect that it’s obvious to everyone conscious (50% of populace)

I wouldn’t think Chuck and Nancy had the spine for that

Ocasio-Cortez suggests Kushner would only be made chief of staff because he’s Trump’s son-in-law

Newly elected Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has mocked the idea that Jared Kushner might become Donald Trump's new chief of staff, calling it rather convenient since he's the president's son-in-law.

WSU stocks men's bathrooms with FREE menstrual products

Celine RyanCalifornia Senior Campus Correspondent@celinedryanon Dec 14, 2018 at 5:27 PM EDT

  • Washington State University has begun stocking men's bathrooms on one of its campuses with free menstrual products.
  • The new offering is part of a system-wide effort to be more inclusive of transgender individuals.


In an effort to demonstrate its “commitment to inclusivity,” Washington State University has begun stocking men’s restrooms with free menstrual products.

The initiative is one of many focusing on “improving the transgender community experience on campus,” and is currently being tested in three restrooms on the Pullman, Wash. campus. The university is in the process of “assessing similar needs” at other WSU campuses to determine which men’s rooms will receive new accommodations.

Additional changes include allowing students to choose a name other than their legal name for their student identification card and a new policy requiring all new buildings to have gender-neutral single-user restrooms. Some individuals found the practice of requiring a legal name on student identification cards “alienating” for transgender students who use chosen names.

“Affirming folks’ identities on their CougarCard is a really big piece for us,” Director of WSU Gender Identity/Expression and Sexual Orientation Resource Center Matthew Jeffries, who also co-chairs the Gender Inclusive and Trans* Support Working Group, a function of WSU’s Campus Culture & Climate Initiative, said. Jeffries’ working group has been tasked with addressing “inequities” on WSU campuses through collaboration with departments and other university entities.

"Throughout the system, students are coming forward and advocating for change,” Nolan Yaws-Gonzalez, assistant director of WSU Vancouver Student Center, said. “We’re going to make changes that impact the whole system.”

However, not all students see these changes as productive. WSU College Republicans President Amir Rezamand told Campus Reform Friday that he found the idea of stocking men’s restrooms with tampons and sanitary napkins “pretty ridiculous,” so much so that he feels it is “indicative that we live in a clown world.”

Campus Reform reached out to WSU for comment, but did not receive a response in time for publication.

The megacorp for which I work as a contractor has been doing this for over 2 years.

When I first joked about it, I was warned that I might be fired.

It still makes me laugh!

Do they stick them up their ass??
lol

I'm kinda thinkin' they're intended for girls who are presenting themselves as boys in public. Ie: they still got the other junk and sometimes need to deal with it, and dressed like guy they probably would look pretty weird goin' into the womens room to get "supplies".

Although I would think that those who do that kinda thing already know the time of Month they need that kinda thing and would plan ahead. Because being the only "guy" in the mens room getting menstrual products would be a dead giveaway that those types would be avoiding in the first place. Ie: they're usually trying to blend in, not make themselves obvious to everyone.
