Really Dolt45 and GOP…you’re gonna shut down the Government AGAIN over the racist wall?
No, I don’t think so.
The voters in November 2018 made it clear on what they want, and what they don’t want.
What they DON’T WANT is that wall. They see it as the racist symbol to White Supremacy that it is.
What they also voted for was oversight of this corrupt Administration.
Dolt45 is finally getting a clue about what oversight actually means, and of course, he doesn’t like it, but who cares?
Echoing Trump’s threat on investigations, Mulvaney admits too much

The most memorable line from Donald Trump’s State of the Union address was, oddly enough, an implicit threat. “If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation,” the president declared. “It just doesn’t work that way!”
The message wasn’t subtle: Trump is only prepared to work constructively with Congress on legislation if lawmakers agree to look the other way on his many scandals. The more Democrats exercise their oversight responsibilities, the less the White House will agree to cooperate on public policy.
The ultimatum was striking in its simplicity: Trump believes Congress will have to choose between tackling substantive issues and scrutinizing his most glaring controversies – because he won’t tolerate both.
Because HE won’t tolerate both?
Like any Democrat actually gives a flying phuck about what Dolt45 will or won’t tolerate.
People STILL don’t get it.
The Democratic rank and file…
Quite honestly, don’t give two goddamns about working with Dolt45 ON ANYTHING.
This is what has changed. We watched the GOP during 44’s Administration.
We saw what they did with someone who was genuinely interested in finding common ground with the other side. And, they had no interest in it.
We know that bi-partisan means in the era of Dolt45 – it means doing what Dolt45 wants.
And, no…we don’t have any time for that.
On top of it, we don’t have any common ground.
Dolt45 puts children in cages..
WE want to see everyone associated with is brought up on charges at The Hague…
Dolt45 and his merry band of racists want to push America’s immigration levels to WHITES ONLY…
WE want to see a fair immigration process fixed…
Dolt45 wants to take away healthcare from MILLIONS..
WE are trying to figure out ways to expand coverage for ALL….
There really truly isn’t any common ground. The GOP represents nothing but rotten and evil. They have no good ideas. They have no ideas that aren’t grounded in bitterness, bile and hatred.
You can’t compromise with them.
On “Fox News Sunday” yesterday, Chris Wallace asked acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney whether the president recognizes the importance of Congress’ oversight role. Mulvaney saidTrump is “not trying to discourage” lawmakers from completing their duties, but he is telling them, “We can either work together on legislation or we can spend all our time with you doing investigations, but you can’t do both.” (That sounds like he’s “trying to discourage.”)
It led to this exchange:
WALLACE: Wait, you can do both and presidents have done both plenty of times.
MULVANEY: Right. But don’t – again, it’s not reasonable to expect the president to work with you on Monday on a big infrastructure bill, and then on Tuesday, have you punch him in the face over 15 different investigations. […] It’s very difficult to do both. I just think that’s human nature.
The reference to “human nature” was of particular interest, because to hear Mulvaney tell it, investigations will hurt Trump’s feelings. And if lawmakers make him feel bad, “human nature” dictates that he won’t want to work with federal policymakers on issues of national significance.
If this Administration weren’t so corrupt to the core, they wouldn’t have to worry about investigations. But, this is the First Branch of Government, exercising its Constitutional Duties, as pointed out by Article One.
They can stay mad. Nobody is under any delusion of remotely attempting to work with Dolt45. It would be a complete waste of time, and we don’t have time to waste. Let him whine.
The investigations will continue…and just expand.
