At midnight on Saturday, the shutdown entered its 22nd day, which makes it the longest gap in American government funding ever.

That beats the previous record, under President Bill Clinton in 1995, of 21 days.

100k is plenty to live if you're single or just have no kids. The problem is that people with that kind of money always buy a huge house and a few cars. With a family of four 4 (assuming he means wife and two kids, not wife and three or four kids') it can start to run a little thin when you start paying for college. Also never marry a woman who doesn't earn at least half of your income.

Because the issue is how your taxes will be spent, not whether or not they should collect. Death and taxes will always be true.

https://cruciblemedia.tv/amazon-succumbs-to-shariah-enforcement-from-cair/

Amazon, a multi-billion dollar corporation recently yielded unconditionally to Islamic terrorist organization, CAIR which masquerades its vast network under the false pretense of a non-profit company. The “Council for American-Islamic Relations” demanded that Amazon remove products listed that the group deemed “Offensive to Muslims.” CAIR said in a public statement that the products, door mats and bath mats sold by independent resellers on Amazon, are offensive to Muslims because they “would be stepped-on or otherwise disrespected by customers.” Predictably, the Seattle based company complied with the Sharia enforced code of conduct.

What sort of weakened and insidious religion projects offense over door mats and bath mats that “disrespect” the faith? Few Christians take issue with Monty Python mocking the Roman Catholic Church, on the contrary the comedy troupe is highly popular for its mockery of Christianity. Imagine if Monty Python had mocked Islam in similar style? They would all be dead. Dutch cartoonists had their lives threatened for satirical depictions of the Islamic “Prophet” Muhammad.

If Muslim-American groups react this way to independent retailers selling door mats and bath mats on a multi-billion dollar corporate website, they are simply incompatible with American life. Islam is a violent religious philosophy unwilling and unlikely to reform and adapt to difference cultures in ways proven successful for Christianity and Buddhism. Why are products mocking Christianity and Buddhism not removed from Amazon listings? Incidents like Amazon removing door mats and bath mats Muslims view as “offensive” prove that Islam is incompatible with Western Civilization and Culture.

From Mueller's team: Buzzfeed wrote fake news and LIED about Trump/Cohen conspiracy.

inb4 left-wingers start saying Mueller is not credible.

>Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office on Friday issued a rare statement disputing a bombshell news report claiming President Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie about the timing of discussions over a proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow.

>“BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller’s office, said Friday.

President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according to two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter.

Trump also supported a plan, set up by Cohen, to visit Russia during the presidential campaign, in order to personally meet President Vladimir Putin and jump-start the tower negotiations. “Make it happen,” the sources said Trump told Cohen.

And even as Trump told the public he had no business deals with Russia, the sources said Trump and his children, Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr., received regular, detailed updates about the real estate development from Cohen, whom they put in charge of the project.

Trump calls Putin, pleading to be allowed to resign. Putin coaxes Trump down, assuring him that everything will be alright. Trump hangs up, self assured that he really is a Big League power house. Putin rubs his eyes with a tired sigh, then quietly chuckles. He had hoped to squeeze a little more blood out of his pet President, but all things must come to an end. There was little left to do but to enjoy the show. Besides, there were other players on the board. Russia was not yet ready for her grand move. Not just yet. For all he cared, America could eat itself for a while. A delightful distraction to be sure. But there would be time for delight later. A hard made opportunity was fast approaching. There was work to do. Poor Donnie would just have to... work things out. That brought another slight grin.

https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2019/01/saudi-teen-granted-asylum-in-canada-drinks-wine-eats-bacon-in-snapchat-images.html

Rahaf Mohammed, the Saudi teen who was granted asylum in Canada last weekend, has posted photos of herself enjoying a glass of wine, a cigarette, and bacon on Snapchat.

Ms Mohammed, 18, was granted asylum after fleeing Saudi Arabia, where she feared being killed after being disowned by her family for not conforming to the country's strict rules.

Saudi teen who renounced Islam inspires women back home

The teen has shared photos on Snapchat celebrating her new life since being in Canada.

Earlier this week Ms Mohammed posted a photo of her breakfast to the social media platform with the caption "Omg bacon," which is controversial due to the Muslim religion's ban on consuming pork products.

Two photos posted more recently are of a glass of red wine and a lit cigarette.

Alcohol is banned completely in Saudi Arabia. The penalty for bringing it into the country or being caught with it can be sent to prison.

Corrupt Democrats and 109 lobbyists party in Puerto Rico while American federal workers work without pay.

Democrats choose to party with their corporate donors instead of making progress on the national budget

Some 30 Democratic lawmakers left the government shutdown behind Friday on a chartered flight to Puerto Rico for a winter retreat with 109 lobbyists and corporate executives during which they planned to see the hit Broadway show “Hamilton” and attend three parties including one with the show’s cast.

Those attending the Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PAC winter retreat in San Juan planned to meet with key officials to discuss the cleanup after Hurricane Maria at a roundtable Saturday.

But the weekend is packed with free time for the members and their families on the trip.

He wants to keep the shutdown going because.

A. It will further damage the United States, which is what Putin wants.
B. It acts as a massive distraction from all of Trump's criminal activity, like the latest reports from the NYT and WP about how he's secretly working as an agent for Russia.

Trump knows his base are fanatics and nothing he does will make him lose support, so through fear, he can keep the Republicans in line and keep the shutdown going indefinitely further damaging the the US.

I'll bet a month of reddit gold platinum it's a half measure: something along the lines of, "if, by, February 1 of this year, the democrats, and their bad leadership chuck schumer and nancy pelosi - terrible for the country! - do not agree to provide full border wall funding, then, at that time, I will have no choiche but to insh-ti-tute a full emergenshy executive order to fund a wall to protect the integrity and shovereignty of our nashun's borders."

You get my drift - he's gonna set a deadline and walk up to that point.

Members of the Sackler family, which owns the company that makes OxyContin, directed years of efforts to mislead doctors and patients about the dangers of the powerful opioid painkiller, a court filing citing previously undisclosed documents contends.

When evidence of growing abuse of the drug became clear in the early 2000s, one of them, Richard Sackler, advised pushing blame onto people who had become addicted.

“We have to hammer on abusers in every way possible,” Mr. Sackler wrote in an email in 2001, when he was president of the company, Purdue Pharma. “They are the culprits and the problem. They are reckless criminals.”

That email and other internal Purdue communications are cited by the attorney general of Massachusetts in a new court filing against the company, released on Tuesday. They represent the first evidence that appears to tie the Sacklers to specific decisions made by the company about the marketing of OxyContin. The aggressive promotion of the drug helped ignite the opioid epidemic.

In 1995, when the Food and Drug Administration approved OxyContin, it allowed Purdue Pharma to claim that the opioid’s long-acting formulation was “believed to reduce” its appeal to drug abusers compared with traditional painkillers such as Percocet and Vicodin.

At a gathering shortly afterward to celebrate the drug’s launch, Mr. Sackler boasted that “the launch of OxyContin tablets will be followed by a blizzard of prescriptions that will bury the competition. The prescription blizzard will be so deep, dense, and white,” according to a document cited in the legal complaint.
