@RepTedLieu

We recently learned that career WH security specialists initially rejected Jared Kushner's security clearance application. It was overruled by a “quasi-political supervisor.” His security clearance must be revoked immediately. Our letter w/ @RepDonBeyer: https://bit.ly/2G1TqXl .

Silicon Valley (San Mateo) eatery bans 'Make America Great Again' hats

Silicon Valley eatery bans 'Make America Great Again' hats



https://news3lv.com/news/nation-world/silicon-valley-eatery-bans-make-america-great-again-hats

SAN MATEO, Calif. (AP) — Patrons won't be served at a Silicon Valley restaurant if they wear a "Make America Great Again" baseball cap.

J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, a chef-partner of the Wursthall restaurant in San Mateo, California, said in a tweet last weekend that he views the hats as symbols of intolerance and hate.

"It hasn't happened yet, but if you come to my restaurant wearing a MAGA cap, you aren't getting served, same as if you come in wearing a swastika, white hood, or any other symbol of intolerance and hate," the San Francisco Chronicle reported Thursday.

The tweet was no longer available Thursday. But the newspaper reported it had more than 2,100 likes and more than 200 retweets as of Wednesday afternoon.

Democrats’ H.R. 1 (the Democrat Politician Protection Act) proposes a massive federal takeover of elections. But neither the facts nor the opinions of American voters show any evidence of a crisis or emergency that would make this unprecedented step necessary.

Nancy Pelosi Retweeted Leader McConnell

It really tells you all you need to know about the priorities of Washington Republicans that a bill to make it easier to vote, increase government transparency, get dark money out of politics & empower working people in our elections is met with such disdain.

Pelosi: No wall money, period. Trump: 'Stop playing political games!'

Democrat unveiled their border security plan, totaling almost $22 billion for the customs service, border patrol and immigration agents.



WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday hardened their positions about a border wall, casting doubt on the prospects of Capitol Hill negotiations intended to reach a compromise and avoid a second government shutdown.

"There's not going to be any wall money in the legislation," Pelosi, D-Calif., told reporters. Her remarks came after Democrats had signaled at least some flexibility in the talks on border security funding that began only Wednesday.

Pelosi's stance came as Trump used Twitter to reiterate his demands on the wall and appeared to sour on the congressional talks aimed at striking a deal with Democrats. Trump told reporters in the Oval Office that Pelosi is "just playing games" and repeated his threat to declare a national emergency and transfer billions of dollars in previously allocated funds to build the wall.

Republicans on the Homeland Security Committee are wasting their time. Democrats, despite all of the evidence, proof and Caravans coming, are not going to give money to build the DESPERATELY needed WALL. I’ve got you covered. Wall is already being built, I don’t expect much help!

So great to watch & listen to all these people who write books & talk about my presidential campaign and so many others things related to winning, and how I should be doing “IT.” As I take it all in, I then sit back, look around, & say “gee, I’m in the White House, & they’re not!

On MSNBC this morning...Dems finishing a "border security" recommendation w/ NOTHING FOR A WALL

I just heard it briefly, in passing, while I was waking up.

But it sounds like the "bipartisan committee" that's been meeting will be getting a recommendation for NO MONEY FOR THE BEADED CURTAIN.

But she PROMISED the Democrats would give him a dollar! SHE PROMISED!!!



The Trump Files: The Easiest 13 Cents He Ever Made

Every man has his price.

Spy correspondent Julius Lowenthal wanted to know just how cheap some of the city’s richest figures were. So he set up a company, called the National Refund Clearinghouse, and sent letters with checks for $1.11 enclosed, “for services that you were overcharged for.” The letters went out to 58 “well-known, well-heeled Americans,” 26 of whom promptly cashed them. Curious as to how low they might go, Lowenthal sent those 26 “nabobs” a second refund check, for $0.64. This time, 13 people cashed them.

Finally, he sent those 13 respondents a check for $0.13. This time, only two people cashed the check. One was an arms dealer. The other was Donald Trump, whom the magazine identified as a “demibillionaire casino operator and adulturer.”

In 1990, Spy sent 13-cent checks to the world’s richest people. Only two cashed them: an arms dealer & Donald Trump. pic.twitter.com/f6Kjt1hMYp
