Well, it’s just what Putin wanted ... easy accessibility to defenseless systems. Way to go

Dear @realdonaldtrump: You should spend your time reopening government instead of forcing yourself on the House of Representatives. We are a separate & coequal branch of government. We do not serve you. We serve the American people. And they want you to reopen government.

The National Air Traffic Controllers Association lastest statement sounds quite dire: “...we cannot even calculate the level of risk currently at play, nor predict the point at which the entire system will break. It is unprecedented.”

Note: That Cohen officially cancels his testimony can be used as evidence that Trump's witness tampering worked.

REPORTER: Why not invite Trump to a joint session next Tuesday? PELOSI: "Because government is closed."

EXCLUSIVE (and big!): Google, Facebook, and Microsoft sponsored a right-wing conference that promoted climate change denial.

We've never had a Mobster as president. So.

Buried at the bottom of this great scoop: USDA meat inspectors also have begun calling in sick — in numbers large enough to trigger an agency crackdown that prompted doctor’s notes as a requirement for those calling out sick

the Oversight Dems are asking why Sebastian Gorka was on White House payroll even though he couldn't get a security clearance.

That’s what state-run TV is for.

Brynn Tannehill transgender ex-naval aviator on the Supreme Court decision: "The court is saying that government discrimination based not on evidence, but solely on animus against transgender people, is permissible."

Lindsey Graham's decision to kiss the asses of the degenerate despot President @realDonaldTrump and his Russian masters sets a new low for American politics.

Bottom is falling out in the new A.P. poll. @realDonaldTrump has a 71% disapproval rating among independents and women. That's up from 58% disapproval before the shutdown.

AP-NORC poll: Shutdown drags Trump approval to yearlong low

This afternoon, I sent @realDonaldTrump a letter informing him that the House will not consider a concurrent resolution authorizing the President’s State of the Union address in the House Chamber until government has opened.

A husband and wife accused of $4 million fraud used that money to buy precious metals, vehicles, guns and ammunition, according to an arrest warrant, because they were "preparing for the fall of the US Government"

JUST IN -- Michael Cohen is postponing his scheduled testimony before the House Oversight Committee, citing "ongoing threats against his family from President Trump and Mr. well as Mr. Cohen's continued cooperation with ongoing investigations."

The Republican party is no longer a political party. It is a personality cult. RIP, GOP. Nice knowing you.

Política Poll: Shutdown, Russia drive Trump to all-time high disapproval

“..Trump thought it perfectly acceptable to clandestinely pursue his personal business interest with the government of a prime U.S. adversary while advancing a presidential platform of improving relations with the regime.”

Come on Moscow Mark! You, @realDonaldTrump & @senatemajldr are holding 800K federal workers (including 250K Veterans) hostage to extort money for Trump’s vanity wall. There was no nat’l security crisis until you created one by leaving FBI, TSA & USCG standing in bread lines.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: “We cannot have the president, every time he has an objection, to say I’ll shut down the government until you come to my way of thinking…If we hold the employees hostage now, they’re hostage forever.”

OCTOBER 2013: DNI Clapper warns shutdown could help enemies recruit US spies cc: @thespybrief @gametheorytoday @LouiseMensch "This is a dreamland for foreign intelligence service to recruit, particularly as our employees already ...

Trump is being encouraged by several people, including Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, to dump Giuliani before it’s too late, while Corey Lewandowski and Dave Bossie are lobbying Trump to keep Giuliani. “Trump is screaming. He’s so mad at Rudy.”

Putin's Russia supports the idea of the wall, the chaos caused by the shutdown, anti-immigrant animus, racial tensions in the US, because those cracks in our foundation make us weaker. That's also why the Kremlin enjoys Trump’s divisive actions & rhetoric.
