  1. Yesterday Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said that he expects Mueller’s
    report to be “horrific.” He said “You’re already hearing people speculate Trump could do a deal and resign.”

    How’s that? Conspiring with Russia to win the election (also known as
    collusion) came out yesterday, that’s why.

    Trump has insisted “there has been no collusion!”

    That balloon? It popped.

    Trump campaign chairman Manafort admitted he sent Trump campaign
    polling data to the Russians to guide their Russian trolling efforts
    to manipulate the white nationalists in the US in social media circles
    like infowars, breitbart, facebook and such. Russia is an enemy state
    of the US. That’s illegal, and of course. These people. They are scum.

    But the cat is out of the bag, and Mueller hasn’t even issued his report.

    Trump is screwed. The White Nationalists are going back down in their
    caves. (Where the most frequent poster here at the CCO can still post
    of course, as long as the russians can feed him more propaganda to
    post, he will always post it.)

      Democrats Can Fund the World, but Not the Wall

      There is nothing like a government shutdown to illustrate clearly the priorities of the two opposing sides to the standoff. On one side is President Trump, keeping a campaign promise to build a wall, to keep crime, sex-trafficking, drugs, and terrorism, not to mention the unfunded burden of illegal aliens, out of America.

      On the other side are the Democrats, hell-bent on keeping 25 percent of the government closed for business rather than funding border security, a concept they wholeheartedly supported a decade ago.

      Democrats were once in favor of border security, too. Many, including Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer, voted for the Secure Fence Act of 2006. This provided for, “Operational control over the entire international land and maritime borders of the United States.”

      Now, because it’s 2019 and Trump is president, Democrats are conveniently against border security. This is a common theme of Democrats, frequently for something before they are against it. Remember John Kerry and the Iraq War?…

      The United States gives about a million dollars a year in aid to Hungary, the same country that was able to fund the construction of “a second fence on the border with Serbia to keep migrants out.”

      Congress is happy to give money to countries to secure their borders, but House Democrats refuse to spend a dime for the same security measures in their own country.

      Shameful, but the shutdown is illustrating Democrat priorities, especially for Pelosi-Schumer Democrats. Let’s have the debate. Where do taxpayers want their hard-earned money to go? To foreign countries so they can secure their borders and protect their citizens? Or should some of that money stay here, providing safety and security for Americans?

  2. Can you get a list of the EVSC employees that make over 80,000 and don’t work in a classroom. It is top heavy. More money for the teachers in the classroom. How much are we going to pay to mow a closed golf course?

  4. Park enclave at Fourth and Main Downtown is for sale. The Evansville Redevelopment Commission will be asked at an upcoming meeting to place the land on its acquisition list, said Kelley Coures, Department of Metropolitan Development director.
