CONFIRMATION HEARINGS

 
 Party Politics first
Democrats are boycotting the Finance Committee, denying Republicans a quorum to approve confirmation of Rep. Tom Price, President Trump's nominee for secretary of health and human services. They also further delayed a committee vote on President Trump's pick to lead the Treasury, Steve Mnuchin, effectively stalling the confirmation process and calling their move a protest against two ethically comprised nominees.

  2. What ever happened to the rule of law?
    Aiding and abetting a criminal is a felony, so why go after the illegal aliens first, or even withhold federal funds from sanctuary states or cities? Why not arrest the politicians committing these felonies?
    To start with the mayors of NYC and Chicago and the Governor of California would work miracles!
    Also why is Mexico so against us building a wall like the one they have on their southern border? Do what I say, not what I do!

    1. OMG Blackdog - I officially get to disregard your posts now. Mexico doesn't have a southern wall. Do you even take a single moment to research anything or do you just go with whatever nonsense seems to make sense to you in those chain e-mails and crazy fake news facebook posts?

    2. Blackdog, where did you learn about Mexico's Southern wall? Are you a willing spreader of fake news? Unfortunately I did not have a chance earlier today to check on your "facts" but please don't make Trumpian claims as the truth.

    3. Before you fall off your high horses . . . Mexico does have a southern wall but like ours it is not continuous. It is patrolled by the military and illegals are jailed then sent back right away.

    4. From Wikipedia "The Guatemala–Mexico border is the international border between Guatemala and Mexico. There is no continuous wall on the border, although there are sections of fence near populated areas and official border crossings.[1]It measures 871 km (541 mi) and runs between north and west Guatemala (the Guatemalan departments of San Marcos, Huehuetenango, El Quiché and El Petén) and the Mexican states of Quintana Roo, Campeche, Tabasco and Chiapas. The border includes stretches of the Usumacinta River, the Salinas River, and the Suchiate River.

      Geopolitically, this border represents much of the western and northern boundary of the region of Central America within North America. It is across this border that most of the commerce between Mexico and Guatemala and the rest of Central America takes place."

      A fence is not a wall and theirs is less formidable or extensive as the fence we now have i place. Trump was talking about a wall similar to the one that Israel has in place to keep out Palestinian terrorists.

    Does this qualify as a wall? if so we have more already, none is a "wall" ala the one between Israel and the Palastinians.
