President Donald Trump blasted Democrats on Thursday in a flurry of tweets, accusing them of angling for a government shutdown and suggesting that they are prioritizing protecting Obamacare over spending on defense and border security. “I promise to rebuild our military and secure our border. Democrats want to shut down the government. Politics!” Trump wrote in one of six messages posted on Twitter within minutes of one another. “What's more important? Rebuilding our military — or bailing out insurance companies? Ask the Democrats,” he added in another. With Trump’s administration nearing its 100th day, White House officials and Republicans on Capitol Hill have yet to reach a deal on must-pass legislation to keep the government open past Friday. And even as work continues on a government funding package, the White House has reportedly been pushing GOP leaders to schedule another vote on legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare, the previous iteration of which failed to garner enough votes in the Republican-controlled House.

There really is abundant evidence. We've presented this evidence in hundreds of articles that deal with this topic. To see some of those, you can visit the exopolitics section of our website here . I'd also like to mention that, whenever we discuss this topic, and move on from asking whether they are here to why they are here, we will always end up with labels of gods, demons, angels, and more. Human beings love to categorize and judge things they do not understand, but if we take a step back and look at the evidence objectively, we’ll see that the most common theme in contact stories is care for our planet, as well as a spiritual understanding of ourselves and the nature of the universe. This becomes even more acceptable to those of us who research quantum physics and neuroscience, as many aspects of these subjects are catching up to ancient Eastern spiritual philosophies.

President Donald Trump discussed his decision to renegotiate NAFTA, admitting that terminating the trade deal would cause too much economic chaos. I decided rather than terminating NAFTA, which would be a pretty big, you know, shock to the system, we will renegotiate,” Trump said. But Trump signaled he was still open to the idea of killing the agreement, if he couldnt get a good deal from Mexico and Canada. “If Im unable to make a fair deal for the United States, meaning a fair deal for our workers and our companies, I will terminate NAFTA,” he said. “But were going to give renegotiation a good, strong shot. Trump made his remarks to White House reporters during a visit from Argentinian president Mauricio Macri. The president shocked Mexico and Canada after news reports revealed Wednesday that the White House had drafted an executive order to terminate NAFTA.

File this one under "this shouldn't be a big deal, but..." AMC-backed streaming service Sundance Now has given its first ever straight-to-series order to The Chances , a show centered around two best friends: Kate (Shoshannah Stern), who is adjusting to being newly engaged, and Michael (Josh Feldman), who is attempting to move on from his ex-boyfriend. The two characters (and the actors portraying them) happen to be deaf, but just as in real life, that singular trait doesn't define them. Stern and Feldman created, wrote and star in the six-episode series, allowing for an authentic portrayal of the deaf community informed by their personal experiences. A premiere date for the series has yet to be announced. Read more... More about Sundance 2017 , Sundance Now , The Chances , Josh Feldman , and Shoshannah Stern

“But that cooperation is greatly impeded if Republicans attempt to use a [the one-week extension] to jam the Trumpcare bill through the House, the aide added. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said that while he agreed with House Democrats on the importance of keeping the government funded before rushing through an Obamacare repeal, he was not yet prepared to ask his caucus to adopt the same strategy. We're not up to that yet, he told reporters. Current government funding runs out at midnight Friday. After settling major outstanding issues over border wall funding and Obamacare subsidies earlier this week, leaders seemed on track for a deal, but all agreed they would likely need a short-term extension to work out final details. Now House Democrats say its outrageous to ask them to negotiate a bipartisan funding deal in good faith while Republicans are working behind the scenes to jam through a bill dismantling Democratssignature legislative achievement.
