Looks like all has failed with efforts to somehow convince Democrats in Congress to vote in favor of a resolution to stop a government shutdown !!

It won't happen tonight at least.

The main "problem" is funding for continuing the Border Wall construction.

The other day, the House and Senate apparently passed some short term legislation but Trump said "Nyet".

So the House amended a bill that includes some Wall money !!

Today the Senate couldn't pass it and BOOM the shutdown starts at Midnight EST 😆

I think 75% of government is already funded (automatically?) so what and who exactly gets cut-off and chopped until Congress gets their "act" together?

Loads of MSM BS all over the place 😆

Democrats still with the "any means necessary" to stop Trump.

Trump said he would take "responsibility" (perhaps not "Blame" however)



BREAKING: Partial Government Shutdown Will Begin at Midnight


The Senate got to work just after noon on Friday to vote on a bill that passed the House Thursday night 217-185 which included $5 billion in border wall funding.

McConnell rejected using the nuclear option to pass the bill with 51 votes because he didn’t have enough support to change the Senate rule which currently requires 60 votes.

The Senate advanced the vote to the floor Friday evening, however negotiations on a new package including all seven appropriations bills is still ongoing.

So the House passed it and the Senate voted to move it forward to a vote but the D’s are filibustering it. Is that right? Wouldn’t the shut down be on the Senate Dems?

Trump should executive order them to remain in session. No budget bill with Wall funding? No Christmas with families for any senator or House member. This stalemate would be over by Monday morning a couple of hours before the last Christmas Eve flight back to their various home regions was due to leave Dulles.

Heh. Good one.

News flash. The president is not the boss of Congress.

If the left can view the Congressional Dems' refusal to secure the border as "values" and a credit, then I see no reason why the rest of us can't view the President's refusal to accept a budget that doesn't secure the border as an indication of values and a credit to his presidency. "Fault" seems to be a partisan infused word here, nothing more.

The president owns it. How's that?

He made a deal with the McConnel or McConnel would not have called the Senate vote. He (the president) reneged.

Uhm...

The president also has the power, in extreme cases, to call both the House of Representatives and the Senate together for a special session.

He's not their boss, but he has more tools in his toolbox to make them do as he instructs than they have to facilitate shirking of their duties.

A special session to do what? Remove wall funding? This is a budget resolution. Not a war.

Schumer rejected the deal Trump and McConnell agreed to, so the deal went away.

"Tonight at 11, the 4th graders have decided to stop playing kick the can. They will return to their homes to have their parents wipe their tears and resume play after a little break. According to a source familiar with the matter, there will be milk and cookies. Stay tuned."

To shorten or avert a shutdown and yeah, this is a type of war.

What?
The Senate (McConnell) passed a bill with no wall funding.

Which was not what Trump and McConnell agreed to. Trump was "open" to a bill with $1.6 Bil in "border fencing" funded and an additional $1 Billion in border security funding... Schumer was not and it got deep sixed to be replaced with the one you're referencing which was NOT something Trump agreed to.
