A Potential Government Shutdown Is Literally Just Hours Away, But Congressional Leaders Insist That Everything Will Be Just Fine
By Michael Snyder

Either the Republicans are going to give Democrats virtually everything that they want, or the federal government will shut down at the end of the day on Friday. We have been through this process time after time, and in every single instance the Republicans have always folded like a 20 dollar suit. Unfortunately, it looks like the Democrats are going to win big this time around too. The spending agreement is essentially an updated Obama budget that fully funds Planned Parenthood, that contains no money for a border wall, and that doesn’t reflect any of President Trump’s other important priorities either. On Thursday, the House is expected to pass this horrible bill, and the Senate is expected to take up the matter on Friday. According to Bloomberg, right now this plan would keep the government open through December 22nd…
The House Rules Committee approved a rule setting the bill up for a floor vote Thursday, after which the Senate will have until the (more…)

As previously reported, Congress has a rampant sexual harassment problem. In fact the problem is so bad that female lawmakers and aides keep a ‘creep list’ of men who are notorious for lewd behavior.
As if this couldn’t get any worse, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd Tuesday that taxpayers have paid over $15 million to settle sexual harassment lawsuits against members of Congress!
A new report by CNN exposes the DC swamp’s very serious problem of powerful men preying on women. CNN spoke with over 50 current and former lawmakers, aides and staff who have personally experienced sexual harassment on The Hill or know people who have.
Women are subjected to sexual harassment by their male colleagues and avoid reporting it out of fear of career-ending retaliation.
A female Senate staffer told CNN she had an experience with a male lawmaker in an elevator that left her horrified.
Multiple females told CNN that elevators on Capitol Hill are known places for male lawmakers (more…)

While skeptics continue to question the doom and gloom scenarios broadcast by anti-geoengineering activists, our skies continue to be pelted with harmful chemicals lighting up the internet world with both environmental and health concerns that are reaching epic proportions in society.
“There is evidence that they are spraying tons of nano-sized aluminum compounds. It has been demonstrated in the scientific and medical literature that nanosized particles are infinitely more reactive and induce intense inflammation in a number of tissues. Of special concern is the effect of these nanoparticles on the brain and spinal cord, as a growing list of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s dementia, Parkinson’s disease, and Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) are strongly related to exposure to environmental aluminum.” Neurologist Russell L. Blaylock, M.D.
Illnesses like cancer, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, respiratory issues, asthma, and bronchitis (to name a few) are consistently on the rise here in the U.S., yet (more…)
US sanctions and other pressures revving up a second Cold War will be the focus of a congressional trip to Russia after President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-California) has announced.
Rohrabacher, head of the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee Europe, Eurasia, and Emerging Threats, told the Washington Post on Wednesday that his subcommittee would take an “official trip” to meet with their Russian counterparts from the Duma “within a month of the inaugural.” Rohrabacher’s congressional office did not dispute the Post’s reporting, but it did say the trip is not yet confirmed. His subcommittee’s travel plans would first have to be approved by Rep. Ed Royce (R-California), the chairman of the House committee on Foreign Affairs, who takes a hardline approach against Russia.
Rohrabacher, a former speechwriter to President Ronald Reagan before being elected to Congress in 1988, is referred to as “a longtime enthusiast” of Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Post article. The 69-year-old Orange County, California native has recently written op-eds and appeared on television (more…)
Dana Rohrabacher, the long-serving Republican congressman from California has announcedhe will be leading a Congressional delegation on an official visit to Russia next month. There he will meet with his Russian counterparts from the Russian parliament (the Duma).
Well OK so an unspecified number of American legislators will travel to Moscow to speak to Russian MPs. Who cares, right? After all it is not as if any of them get to direct foreign policy.
Millions of Americans ‒ more than 22 million of them ‒ are wondering what will become of Obamacare in the new year. President-elect Donald Trump has been anything but clear about his plans, but President Barack Obama and Democrats may have an idea. The outgoing president will confer with Democratic lawmakers about how to proceed […]
Jim Himes, a Congressional leader in the oversight of the National Security Agency and US cybersecurity, has just torpedoed Obama’s case against Russia.
Obama has revealed his intentions to attack Russia in retaliation for alleged hacking of Democratic Party and Clinton campaign emails. He’s offered no substantiation for his accusations. The evidence he and others have cited does not check out. What’s more the allegations have never been addressed by the UN or any other competent international security agency.
But the lack of substantiation is actually beside the point. The primary issue is that countries covertly gathering information from other countries is nothing new, and is certainly not unique to Russia.
The US, for example, was caught hacking telephone conversations of the German Chancellor and the president of Brazil.
