    2500 stores across the country are no longer able to take EBT payments because their licenses lapsed during the shutdown and cannot be renewed until the government resumes. A number of states are issuing food stamp benefits early due to the government shutdown. They’re doing this over concern that if the shutdown continues, they won’t be able to issue the payments in February. But the early payment comes with a sobering warning. A press relief from the state of Michigan said: For food assistance clients, Michigan will begin issuing February benefits on Saturday, Jan. 19. Clients who don’t receive their benefits on that date should receive the funds the following week. That means the 1.2 million Michigan residents who receive food assistance will have benefits to feed their families in February even if the partial federal government shutdown continues. The early food assistance benefits are not additional benefits and there will be no food assistance payments in February. MDHHS strongly encourages families to budget the funds they receive in January so they can meet their food needs through the entire month of February. (source) Another warning, more bluntly worded, came from an official in Pennsylvania. Carmen Rodriguez, a Camden County Freeholder and Liaison to the Department of Health and Human Services, has a warning for anyone who uses the government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP. She says don’t blow through the money.

    Swordsmyth replied to a thread Mexico. in World News & Affairs
    Source: World Socialist Web Site So keep plenty of salt grains handy Over 70,000 “maquiladora” workers from 45 factories in the US-Mexico border town of Matamoros, Mexico have entered the sixth day of their courageous struggle as more and more plants are paralyzed throughout the city. Last night, thousands of workers marched through the city from factory to factory chanting “unity, unity,” “walk out! walk out!,” “the workers united will never be defeated” and “strike!” Workers stopped at each plant and appealed to workers changing shift to join their strike, greeting each new walkout with a loud round of cheers. The crowd grew throughout the night. There is a sense in the ruling class that the strike may be getting out of control. Amid a complete media blackout, the hated trade unions are doing everything in their power to restrict the movement to “legal” union-led negotiations and to keep stoppages from spreading to more manufacturing complexes across the border area and internationally. The strike at Matamoros has been completely ignored by the corporate media. There is not a single article about the Matamoros strike in any of the major Mexican or international news outlets. While devoting front-page news to anti-democratic maneuvers by the Democratic Party, the US-based New York Times and Washington Post, and Mexican newspapers such as El Universal and Reforma, have nothing to say about the largest strike on the North American continent in recent years.

    Signs continue to point to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo running for the Senate come 2020. The latest indication: reports that he planned to meet Sunday afternoon with veteran Republican strategist Ward Baker to discuss a possible campaign to fill the seat being vacated by Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas. Roberts, a Republican, said earlier this month, that he would not seek re-election in 2020. The meeting between Pompeo and Baker, which was first reported by Politico, comes as Republican leaders including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., are aggressively wooing the secretary of state to run for the open seat. Pompeo, who previously served as a congressman from Kansas, has not made a decision on whether or not he will run, but his aides have said he's in no rush to make a call anytime soon. More at: https://www.foxnews.com/politics/report-pompeo-meeting-with-top-gop-strategist-as-he-mulls-2020-senate-bid Trump didn't appreciate the attempts to undermine the Syria withdrawal, hopefully Bolton will be gone soon as well.

    With plans for President Trump's annual State of the Union address uncertain, a North Carolina state lawmaker has extended the latest invitation for the president to deliver the speech in a setting away from Capitol Hill. Tim Moore, a Republican who serves as speaker in North Carolina's state House of Representatives, issued a letter Friday asking Trump to give the speech in the House chamber of North Carolina's Statehouse in Raleigh. “I attended your first State of the Union address in Washington D.C. last year,” Moore wrote. “It was an unforgettable experience to witness this tradition of our commander-in-chief’s speech to a joint session of Congress. “I also believe taking your message outside of the nation’s gilded capital to a state government venue reflects the priorities of your administration, and those of our Congress, to create success not only for federal institutions and programs but for the American people they serve,” the letter continues. Previously, another Republican state lawmaker – in Michigan – also invited Trump to deliver his speech in the state Capitol of that state, in Lansing. “There is no higher loyalty or obligation than to the people we serve and the communities we represent, and no partisan gamesmanship should stand in the way of that service,” new state House Speaker Lee Chatfield wrote in his letter to the president. “Because of that, this chamber and this speaker are willing to put people before politics for this important occasion.” The White House hasn't yet announced what the president will do regarding the State of the Union speech in the wake of Pelosi's request that he not appear at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 29.

    I don't agree, Congress should not have any pressure put on them to end any shutdown beyond the political fallout and neither should the President, shutdowns are good and compromises made under pressure are always bad.

    Republican Sen. Joni Ernst introduced a bill that would prohibit lawmakers from leaving the nation's capital if they fail to pass a budget on time. She said Saturday on Fox & Friends that the "No Budget, No Recess Act" is cosponsored by a number of her fellow senators. According to a press release about the proposal, the act would force member of Congress to stay in Washington, D.C., if a budget fails to pass by April 15 or if regular spending bills don't pass by August 1. "This means that Congress would be unable to adjourn for the August state work period -- commonly referred to as "recess" -- until work is completed," it stated. Ernst (Iowa) said that if either requirement wasn't met, "there would be quorum calls requiring our members to be on the floor twice a day until we work through the impasse." More at: https://insider.foxnews.com/2019/01/19/bill-would-force-lawmakers-stay-washington-during-government-shutdown I don't like this idea either but it is better than the bill Rand and Mike Lee signed on to.

    California State Senator and Senate Judiciary Committee chair Hannah-Beth Jackson (D) announced this week that "gender neutral" pronouns will be used during committee hearings. Jackson said that new committee rules recognize California's designation of "non-binary" as a gender. The words "he and she" will now become "what my grammar teacher would have had a heart attack over," the senator said. The committee will use the word "they" instead, because it is gender-neutral, Jackson said. "Basically, that's the primary reforms and revisions to the committee rules," she said. Jackson also said that as the chair, she will now be known as "they," to keep in line with "the spirit of gender neutrality for the rules of this committee." "So, the world is a different place. My grammar teacher's long gone and we won't be hearing from her," Jackson said. She then corrected her use of the word "her." "From them...from they," Jackson said, illustrating the foolish confusion created by the new rule.

    But will independents believe them? And how many government workers will quit? How much donation money will the Demoncrats lose with so many government workers going without paychecks? How many liberals will agree with Cher and blame Pelosi and Schumer? Cher asks Nancy Pelosi to end government shutdown before Trump: 'LET HIM HAVE HIS FKNG MONEY' If the military is sent to the border instead I don't care, the shutdown is very good.

    He wants the shutdown to go on until further notice, in order to do that he can't declare the emergency and build the wall yet or he would have to sign the original budget bill, he also has to look like he is trying to end the shutdown by offering Nancy Pelosi a compromise while she refuses to give him $1 in return for anything. DACA will go away when RBG is replaced and SCOTUS overrules the leftist judges and the emergency will be declared and the wall construction will begin sometime in 2020 when Trump thinks it will best affect the election.

    He just has to never offer it again, the wall is going to be built without a deal using an emergency declaration. There won't be a deal, the Demoncrats have painted themselves into a corner, they can't agree to the wall and they can't agree to any of the fixes to our immigration laws that Trump's offer might be part of, when they lose the House in 2020 Trump will not need to compromise with them.

    A top Democrat has called for a ban on teenagers wearing Make America Great Again hats in response to the debunked viral video alleging a group of pro-Trump Catholic students were harassing a Native American activist. House Budget Committee chair Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) blamed President Trump for the ordeal, claiming that his MAGA hats are “poisoning young minds.” “I am calling for a total and complete shutdown of teenagers wearing MAGA hats until we can figure out what is going on. They seem to be poisoning young minds,” he tweeted Sunday. I am calling for a total and complete shutdown of teenagers wearing MAGA hats until we can figure out what is going on.

    I disagree, Trump can refuse any future deal. He knew that they would refuse the deal and he could make them look bad without giving up anything. There will be no deal and DACA and TPS will not get a three year reprieve let alone amnesty.

    A GoFundMe is now active to raise money to help the Covington Catholic high school students who have been attacked by the mainstream media, doxxed, and subjected to violent threats. (HERE’S THE LINK). The Covington students could file lawsuits in their defense if they are expelled or can prove libel on the part of the mainstream media. The GoFundMe has set a goal of $1 million.

    Nathan Phillips, the Native American man at the center of the controversy involving Covington Catholic High School students who were unfairly smeared by the media, is raising money with the help of a major big-money left-wing operation, and has a history of appearing in the press claiming to be a victim of anti-Native racism. “ is a Vietnam Veteran and former director of the Native Youth Alliance,” according to Heavy. The Native Youth Alliance appears to be a standalone entity. However, the larger well-funded Native Youth Leadership Alliance — which told us that it is not associated with Phillips — is currently promoting Phillips’ fundraising campaign stemming from the incident with the Catholic teens. The Native Youth Leadership Alliance (NYLA) is a non-profit organization that is funded by the same far-left power players who are often involved in bankrolling leftist causes. The organization’s funding partners include the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and the Social Justice Fund Northwest. The homepage for the NYLA is promoting Phillips’ fundraising campaign. The point is this: Phillips is not simply a random Native man who was accosted by “racist” MAGA-hat wearing teens, as the mainstream press has reported. He is connected to leftist activists who donate large sums to leftist causes. And now, he is personally fundraising off the mainstream press’ misdeeds.

    A bomb blast hit Damascus on Sunday, in a rare attack in the Syrian capital that has been largely insulated from violence during nearly eight years of war.The explosion came as another bomb in the northern city of Afrin killed three people and wounded nine others, according to a war monitor, on the first anniversary of a Turkish offensive on the Kurdish-majority region. Also on Sunday Israel said it intercepted a rocket fired from Syria after Damascus accused the Jewish state of carrying out air raids on the south of the country. Syrian state news agency SANA said a "bomb blast" had hit southern Damascus "without leaving any victims". "There is confirmation of reports that a terrorist has been arrested," it said. - 'Huge explosion' - The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor reported, however, a "huge explosion" near a military intelligence office in southern Damascus that left a number of people dead and wounded. "The explosion took place near a security branch in the south of the city," and was followed by shooting, said the monitor which relies on a network of sources inside the country. "There are some people killed and injured but we could not verify the toll immediately," it added. It was unclear if the blast was caused by a bomb that was planted or a suicide attack, according to the monitor. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
