Part 799 - 9/30/2013 - Donald Trump discusses the 2013 government shutdown, when the Federal machine closed up shop for 17 days: "25, 50, or 100 years from now when they talk about the government shutdown, they're gonna be talking about who was the President at the time. They're not gonna be talking about who the head of the House or the Senate was. I really think the pressure is on the President." . . - 1/19/2018 - This afternoon, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer met with the President in an effort to broker a compromise between his Democratic party and 45's G.O.P. Ultimately, after 90 minutes and a meal of cheeseburgers, neither side came away with anymore than they'd walked into the Oval with. . . - As the hours dwindled leading up to the midnight deadline for whether the government would stay open or not, the two parties remained entrenched in conflict with Democrats still fuming over the lack of any provision to protect DACA recipients who will be forced to vacate the country on March 5th and Republicans biting at their colleagues on the left side of the aisle for not budging on the matter. . . - At 11:59, the Senate floor was abuzz with lawmakers as the votes were tallied. . . . . #art #drawing #chicago #chicagoart #penandink #illustration #art🎨 #artwork #art🌎 #artoftheday #donaldtrump #journalism #instajournalism #comicsjournalism #graphicjournalism #comics #comicstrip #politicalcomic #america #americanpolitics #trump #donaldtrump #chuckschumer #cheeseburger #immigration #daca #dreamers #senate #governmentshutdown2018 #resist

Part 800 1/20/2018 - Three days ago: @RepAdamSchiff - What passes for logic in the Oval Office: Republicans control the Senate. Republicans control the House. Republicans control the White House. Last year, @POTUS tweeted that we need a “good shutdown.*” If government closes, who’s responsible? Democrats! (*see 5/2/17 entry) . . - Just after Midnight, via the White House: "Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown. We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands. This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators." . . - The Federal Government is now closed. Unable to put together the 60 votes needed to pass the stop-gap budget to keep the apparatus open, 4 Republicans voted alongside their Democratic peers in blocking the budget proposal currently on the table. 5 Democrats voted in favor. Ultimately, 50 members voted in favor while 48 voted against. . . - "A government shutdown was 100% avoidable. Perhaps across the aisle, some of our Democratic colleagues are feeling proud of themselves, but what has their filibuster accomplished?” (McConnell) . . - Today marks 1 year since Donald Trump assumed the Presidency. . . . . #art #drawing #chicago #chicagoart #penandink #illustration #art🎨 #artwork #art🌎 #artoftheday #donaldtrump #journalism #instajournalism #comicsjournalism #graphicjournalism #comics #comicstrip #politicalcomic #america #americanpolitics #trump #donaldtrump #adamschiff #mitchmcconnell #capitolhill #immigration #daca #dreamers #senate #governmentshutdown2018 #resist

Haha this is how he needs to continue to act. Instead of getting butt hurt and tweeting 20 times about petty irrelevant negativity towards him (the women’s march) make fun of it, be light hearted about it, and turn it back onto them, then go back to your business focusing on actual things of importance. He too often feeds into the bullshit which allows the bullshit to flourish even more. This was the perfect tweet. —TAGS— #unitedstates #taxes #free #libertarian #2ndamendment #blacklivesmatter #liberal #conservative #politics #communism #government #america #usa #womensmarch #democrat #republican #independent #freedom #liberty #constitution #corruption #americanpolitics #capitalist #capitalism #firearms #trump #guns #feminism #limitedgovernment #2a

Part 798 1/19/2018 - Last night, on the Senate Floor as the two parties duked it out over the Federal budget's avoidance of a provision to protect Dreamers, their leaders stared one another down... . . - Mitch McConnell: “My Democratic colleagues’ demands on illegal immigration, at the behest of their far-left base, have crowded out all other important business." . . - Chuck Schumer: “The leader is looking to deflect blame. But it just won't work. We all know what the problem is. It's complete disarray on the Republican side." . . - McConnell: “On the Republican side we’re interested in what the President's views on DACA are, but those have not been made fully apparent yet" . . - This morning, at the White House, OMB Director Mick Mulvaney spoke to a brief press gaggle: "In terms of a shutdown happening, I’m handicapping it now at some place between 50 and 60 percent." . . - Meanwhile, Donald Trump canceled his weekend Mar-A-Lago golf plans to stay in Washington as the left and the right took right and left hooks at one another while the Federal shutdown loomed. . . "@realDonaldTrump - Government Funding Bill past last night in the House of Representatives. Now Democrats are needed if it is to pass in the Senate - but they want illegal immigration and weak borders. Shutdown coming? We need more Republican victories in 2018!" . . . . #art #drawing #chicago #chicagoart #penandink #illustration #art🎨 #artwork #art🌎 #artoftheday #donaldtrump #journalism #instajournalism #comicsjournalism #graphicjournalism #comics #comicstrip #politicalcomic #america #americanpolitics #trump #donaldtrump #chuckschumer #mitchmcconnell #immigration #daca #dreamers #senate #governmentshutdown2018 #resist

Simply put, Americans can’t afford to miss paychecks because Congress has forgotten they’re supposed to be working for the people and not just for themselves. https://medium.com/@crystaljackson/congress-gets-a-paycheck-while-taking-yours-how-to-take-a-stand-ff66775521bb Link in profile ☝️

Today, as marches end and begin across the world, it’s important to remember to not let the passion and fervor created, die. We’ve been through this too many times, on too many lands, and in too many ways. We need to continue the fight for peace and create a better tomorrow...

Excuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuse me. But, 1) what are women “resisting” in the western world? I, a woman, never got the memo and if I did I sure didn’t support it. 2) feminists don’t support every woman. They don’t support female conservatives, women who voted for trump, women who don’t believe in white guilt, Iranian women, capitalist women, unborn women, or women who don’t believe in feminism. And 3) if international women’s day is the most important holiday this year then damn. Do we even get school off for international women’s day? Does anyone celebrate it y having fun or do we just screech to celebrate? Idk I prefer Christmas and thanksgiving but I guess to each their own. #Repost @nowthisnews with @get_repost ・・・ Here are some of the marches you can attend to keep on #resisting through 2018. #NowThis will be covering several #WomensMarch events this weekend- follow us @nowthisher for coverage! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Follow my partners! 🔹@civility101 🔺@_true_liberty_ 🔹@treepolitwigs 🔺@maddyfortrump 🔹@liberalfactz 🔺@happy.capitalist 🔹@libertyfreedom_ 🔺@classical.liberal1776 🔹@fuckliberalmedia #newpolitics #dirtypolitics #Americanpolitics #politics #rightwing#republican #republicans #republicanparty #republica ndebate#debate #debates #debategram #leftist #democrats #socialism #nationalsocialism #democraticsocialismanpolitics #politics #rightwing#republican #republicans #republicanparty #republica ndebate#debate #debates #debategram #leftist #democrats #socialism #nationalsocialism #democraticsocialism
