In other news, the federal deficit reached a record high of $205 billion in November. That's up from $139 billion in November of 2017. You know, before the tax cuts.

Meanwhile, FAA records show that Trump is planning to leave Washington and spend over 2 weeks at Mar-a-Lago beginning next Friday. The government may or may not be shut down at that time.

Finally, the Senate finally did something useful today and passed two resolutions. One calls for withdrawing U.S. support for the Saudi's war in Yemen, and the other resolution formally blames Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman for the death of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi.

Unfortunately, the resolutions are non-binding, but it's better than nothing.

  • I commented on an earlier post that I think Kashoggi was killed because he had info on direct ties of MSB to Trumpov and the election. Mueller plans on issuing something just after the new year about Middle Eastern interference. All along we thought it was just the Russians but it may be much more complicated.

    BTW, the Washington Post is reporting that a 7-year-old girl from Guatemala died of dehydration and shock after crossing the border into the U.S. She was in Border Patrol for 8 hours when she started seizing. So we had for her 8 hours and never once checked on her effing welfare. Apparently she hadn’t eaten or drank anything for several days. Her physical distress would have been so obvious to anyone with eyes. I don’t know how those Border Patrol Agents can live with themselves. How could they not have seen that child was in trouble?! What do you want to bet the father tried to tell him and they ignored him? I can’t even begin to tell you how angry this makes me.

    And in regards to the shut down, can’t Congress just pass another CR without Trumpov’s involvement? He’s still a POS but he’s not the real problem. Congress is.
