President Donald Trump speaks at a rally in El Paso, Texas.

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney says Trump will tap various other sources of money beyond the nearly $1.4 billion in a government funding bill that Congress passed. Trump is expected to sign the bill.

Besides the money from Congress, Mulvaney said Friday that Trump plans to spend $600 million in Treasury forfeiture funds and $2.5 billion in Defense Department counterdrug money.

Trump is also tapping about $3.6 billion worth of funds set aside for military construction projects.

Mulvaney says Trump is not tapping disaster relief money designated to help Texas and Puerto Rico following recent devastating hurricanes.

12:45 a.m.

Congress has lopsidedly approved a border security compromise that would avert a second painful government shutdown.

But a new confrontation has been ignited. Trump’s plan to bypass lawmakers and declare a national emergency to siphon billions from other federal coffers for a wall on the Mexican boundary is certain to be challenged.

Money in the bill for border barriers, about $1.4 billion, is far below the $5.7 billion Trump insisted he needed and would finance just a quarter of the 200-plus miles he wanted.

The White House said he’d sign the legislation passed Thursday but act unilaterally to get more. That prompted condemnations from Democrats and threats of lawsuits from states and others who might lose federal money or said Trump was abusing his authority.

A.F. Branco Cartoon – Green Means Stop

High-speed rail projects are collapsing across the country, as the Green New Deal is asking for more rail projects and no air travel.

How do you reduce veritable Paradise into a reeking open sewer in such a very short time? You can thank our ‘Progressive’ friends. Their social policy is a gift that keeps on giving. Is there any wonder that companies are thinking twice about holding their conventions in some of the cities that USED to be the go-to destinations?

San Fran’s Homelessness And Opioid Plague Just Cost Them $40M In

Michael Snyder busted open a can of whoop ass in his article describing just how bad the living conditions in major cities on the Left Coast are getting. Link for the original article here.

Here are some key takeaways.

It’s not for a lack of money…

Like twentieth-century Detroit, thriving industry, high median wealth and other natural advantages that made them the envy of the nation, they stubbornly found a way to fail and fall into a serious decline.

Since few places have greater wealth than California, the problem lies in HOW these cities have managed what they have, not in whether they have enough overall wealth to address the problems.

Where Rats Are King

You know that expression about fighting city hall? In some American cities, City Hall can’t even fight their exploding rat population. This is reporting from LA

Officials at Los Angeles’ City Hall are considering ripping all of the building’s carpets up, as rats and fleas are said to be running riot in its halls.

A motion was filed by Council President Herb Wesson on Wednesday to enact the much needed makeover amid a typhus outbreak in the downtown area.

Wesson said a city employee had contracted the deadly bacterial disease at work, and now he’s urging officials to investigate the ‘scope’ of the long-running pest problem at the council building.

Office workers (plural) have even been bitten by rats.

Rats? Fleas? Typhus?

What next, a return of the Plague?

Don’t think it’s a localized problem, either.

The number of homeless has been rising about 20 percent a year, public drug use is seemingly everywhere, and there are mountains of trash all over the place. Needless to say, rats thrive in such an environment

Yikes. Maybe it’s best to give LA a pass then.

What about going a little further North, say, to Oregon?

Terry Balow, an outreach worker with the Salvation Army, has been here for the darker moments of living life under a bridge — anger, mental illness, drug use and human frustration boiling over at times everywhere one looks.

Yet it was a rat infestation and concern about human health that prompted the city of Salem to move the campers out.

“It just grew and grew and got worse,” Balow said. “It’s worst than people can imagine.”

More drugs. More homelessness. More rats. Maybe it’s just a problem on the coasts?

How’s Denver looking?

The Denver City Council has voted unanimously to decriminalize a number of offenses, including defecating in public. Also, urinating in public. Camping on public or private land without permission. Panhandling. And lying across public rights-of-way, such as sidewalks. — Hot Air

On PRIVATE LAND??? Oh, the things they are willing to overlook so as not to ‘complicate’ life for their beloved Illegal aliens.

We’ve already covered San Fran

Where they needed to create a Poop Map to help the public.

New Mayor Of Crap City: ‘More Feces On The Sidewalks Than I’ve Ever Seen’

The story did have a Western emphasis, so there were some obvious omissions, including the city that was awarded the title of Rat Capital last year. What about…

Chicago?

Rat Capital: What Liberal City Tops The List Of Being Infested With Rats?

Funny how that title works in more ways than one, isn’t it?

What. A. Mess.

But an unchecked influx of illegal aliens wouldn’t have anything to do with ANY these trends… right?

Socialism has failed every time it’s been tried — even at Panera.

Back in 2010, Panera Bread CEO, Ron Shaich gave a Tedx Talk in St. Louis and touted his new plan, Panera Cares Cafes that were based on a ‘pay-what-you-can’ model. He said, in many ways, this whole experiment is ultimately a test of humanity. Would people pay for it? Would people come in and value it?

Apparently, the answer is, ‘No’.

ClashDaily has covered the failing of the Panera Cares just 9 years after the launch of the program, and now, the last location in Boston is about to shut its doors.

The company says its final Panera Cares location in Boston will close Friday after six years, and that it is helping employees find jobs at other locations.

Panera opened its first donation-based community café in Clayton, Missouri, in 2010. The model aimed to raise awareness about food insecurity by offering meals at a suggested donation price.

The initial idea was that there would be no prices listed, but would include the full Panera menu. This was adapted to a ‘suggested donation’ amount listed where some patrons would pay more and others would pay less.

Watch Shaich’s Ted Talk that didn’t age well:

One problem was that many patrons felt ‘shamed’ if they were unable to pay the full ‘suggested donation’ amount.

Although the stores were supposed to be self-sufficient, the company revealed that the Panera Cares locations were bringing in 70 to 80 percent of the revenue of the traditional Panera Bread locations, which made them non-viable.

Luxembourg-based investment firm JAB Holding Co, which bought Panera in 2017, said in a statement: ‘Despite our commitment to this mission, it’s become clear that continued operation of the Boston Panera Cares is no longer viable.

‘We’re working with the current bakery-café associates affected by the closure to identify alternate employment opportunities within Panera and Au Bon Pain.’

Shaich stepped down as CEO in January 2018, around the same time that the flagship Panera Cares location closed its doors.

Source: Daily Mail

Those ‘regular customers’ that Shaich spoke of in his Tedx speech now have to find a new haunt.

I’ll bet Panera wishes they had gone with a dollar menu like the other restaurants, eh? Then those customers would still be grabbing a bite to eat at a Panera, and the employees wouldn’t have to go looking for a new job.

Someone should page the new Democrat Darling and tell her that socialism doesn’t work.

Don’t let your kids grow up to be like AOC! Tell them what they need to hear:

The Governor of California wants to not build the massive high-speed rail as it was proposed, and keep the money the feds gave towards the project. That’s not how this works.

The high-speed rail system in California was going to be the envy of the nation. It was going to revolutionize how Californians traveled within their state. It was going to be sleek, and cool, and would shuttle passengers from Los Angeles to San Francisco in just 2.5 hours at speeds of 220 mph. The Deep Blue state was going to be a leader in ‘green’ travel, but it’s all falling apart, for the very same reasons that critics had expected it would. It was plagued by delays, soaring costs, lack of transparency, however, was staunchly supported by Democrats and unions — but I repeat myself. Critics are calling it the ‘Bullet Train to Nowhere’.

During the State of the State address, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the long-anticipated high-speed rail project will be cut by a good 80 percent. The reasons? Cost and time. Gov. Newsom says that the project would ‘cost too much and, respectfully, take too long‘ to implement. The cost ballooned from $13 billion to $77 billion or possibly $98.1 billion. (There’s also the issue of it being completely unfeasible due to mountains and fault lines, but Gov. Newsom doesn’t mention that part.)

This announcement of the massive cut comes hot on the heels of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s bungled roll-out of her ‘Green New Deal’, a proposal that she put forward in the House is so insane that it included the elimination of air travel, the internal combustion engine, and cows, along with not-so-veiled proposals for all-out communism. Included in the proposal is a renewed reliance on rail travel as a ‘green’ option to eliminate the need for planes.

Despite the cost and time problems, Governor Newsom is determined to implement some portion of the plan because billions of dollars have already been spent. He also doesn’t want to pay back the federal government the 3.5 billion that was allocated for the 520-mile rail line connecting Los Angeles and San Francisco. The project has been scaled back to just 119-mile line from Merced to Bakersfield.

Watch Cali Gov. Gavin Newsom drop a wet blanket on the $77 billion high-speed rail project:

During the speech, Newsom said:

Abandoning high-speed rail entirely means we will have wasted billions and billions of dollars with nothing but broken promises, partially filled commitments and lawsuits to show for it.

And by the way, I am not interested in sending $3.5 billion in federal funding that was allocated to this project back to Donald Trump.

– Gov. Newsom, State of the State Address, Feb. 12, 2019.

As you can well imagine, President Trump didn’t take kindly to that:

He isn’t wrong.

California taxpayers are out over $10 billion and federal taxpayers are out $3.5 billion with no trains yet running.

The Cali Governor responded to the President’s tweet by calling it ‘fake news’:

Watch the Fox News coverage:


This high-speed rail boondoggle was just another example of the Democrats wasting taxpayer dollars on an unfeasible project that they pushed to fit their ideology. There was no transparency and the costs were allowed to soar. The Obama administration had kicked in $3.5 billion for what was essentially going to be high-speed rail system in one state and nobody batted an eye. The cost rose from $13 billion to nearly $100 billion for a freaking system of rail in just one state! I don’t recall Sen. Nancy Pelosi(D-CA) talking about the ‘waste’ or the morality of the decision.

President Trump wants $5.7 billion for a border wall and everyone is going insane.

Cali needs to give back that cash because the project that they are planning on completing isn’t the one that was proposed.

Democrats need to just fund the wall, too. After all, we’ve been told that ‘elections have consequences’ and we just need to win an election to get our policy positions to move forward. Well, Donald J. Trump is President of the United States and the pillar of his platform was a border wall. Democrats need to just deal with the fact that the election has been over for more than 2 years — and they lost.

#BuildTheWall

Artist Doug Giles has released the latest offering in his MAGA series.

We finally have a Republican leader who’s ready to fight when it’s a ‘hill worth dying on’. He did it for Kavanaugh, he’s doing it again.

Trump is rebelling against the establishment’s demands that he bow the knee to public pressure. He wants that wall.

What better way to capture that ‘try and stop me’ attitude, than with a bonafide American Icon. Like Trump, this painting pulls no punches.

It’s simply called ‘Build The Wall

Imagine for a moment you’re a female weightlifter.

For years, you’ve started every day with a run. You spend grueling hours in the gym and live with the sore muscles as a testament to that. Your diet is just as strict and regimented as your workout routine — every calorie and macronutrient is accounted for, and you force yourself to drink protein shakes between every meal.

Feeling prepared and at the top of your game, you enter a state powerlifting competition. All of your hard work is about to pay off. After watching the women competing, you’re sure that first place is yours.

But after the women’s division winners are announced, a 280-pound man walks up. The judges hand him a gold medal, and then he raises his hands in a victory pose.

You get a second-place ribbon. Better luck next year.

This could have been the story of any woman at January’s United States Powerlifting Association Minnesota State Championship. Despite the countless years of gym time between all of the women there, a man with a single year of training under his belt walked home with not only two women’s gold medals but one of their state records as well.

The man is JayCee Cooper, a 31-year-old amateur weightlifter who describes himself as “queer-n-trans” on his Instagram profile.

His championship victory didn’t sit right with everyone. The conservative clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson even weighed in on Cooper’s “accomplishment,” in his own sarcastic way.

“Such an impressive accomplishment,” Peterson wrote in a Twitter post. “Defeating all those women. And so quickly. And by such a margin. Miracle? Or narcissism of an incomprehensible quality?”

After sweeping the competition at the state championship, Cooper’s powerlifting ambitions were halted by an email from USA Powerlifting — the big dog of American lifting federations. As Cooper revealed in an interview with Compete Network: “The USAPL will not allow me to compete because I am a transfeminine person. And, according to them, it confers some sort of anatomical advantage, even though I’m not sure where they’re getting that ‘science.’”

Despite Cooper’s apparent lack of understanding about the fundamentals of biology, science is pretty clear on the subject of sex differences and physical ability. A Duke University study found that even Olympian Tori Bowie’s lifetime best 100-meter time (less than 11 seconds — an impressive speed) was shattered by men and boys over 15,000 times in a single year. And this is just for a 100-meter dash. Strength competitions will obviously have just as large of a disparity, if not a bigger one.

In the Compete Network interview, Cooper acknowledged he’s only been seriously into weight training for about a year. It’s a good bet the women he defeated at the competition have been training much, much longer than that.

Unfortunately for female athletes, it appears as though Cooper’s victory is emblematic of the unfair advantage they may often face in the future.

And leftists, obsessed with transgender causes,” are abandoning the very women they claim to be supporting.
