PONNURU: Democrats can win by giving Trump his wall

PONNURU: Democrats can win by giving Trump his wall”

Speaking on the Senate floor, Schumer warned that "going along with the Trump shutdown is a futile act" because House Democrats would quickly approve government funding in January.

The term limits are retroactive, meaning the four years Pelosi served as speaker beginning in 2007 would count against her.

The video then cut to old clips of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and former President Barack Obama making various statements against illegal immigration.

House Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi in a private meeting with fellow Democrats. They also said her demonization as an out-of-touch radical in tens of millions of dollars' worth of Republican television ads was costing Democrats seats.

We wish to thank Nancy Pelosi for her willingness to work with us to reach this agreement.

Blame for the Marriott Hotel data breach pointed directly at China
China has reportedly been trying to build a database containing USA government officials' personal information. The hack exposed data from approximately 500 million Marriott and Starwood hotel customers.

Now, Scalise, Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) are under enormous pressure to prove their ally in the White House was correct and that Pelosi, the likely incoming Speaker, was wrong.

The recalcitrant Democrats include Reps. Pelosi told him the bill would fail spectacularly - and dared him to try. "We will support and vote for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House in the 116th Congress".

Trump says money coming in from a new trade agreement means Mexico will effectively be paying for the wall. "If Gil will betray the voters on the first major decision he makes in Washington, how can they trust him at all?"

Joining Perlmutter in saying they would now back her were Democratic Reps.

Pelosi is emerging as a leader not only of Democrats on Capitol Hill but also of Democrats and Democratic women nationally -perhaps not quite at the iconic status of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who has seen movies made about her life and tchotchkes forged in her likeness - but nonetheless, the face of the party, ready to go toe-to-high-heeled toe against Trump.

Martial suffered an apparent hamstring injury in the second half of United's 2-2 draw against Arsenal on Wednesday. Obviously there will be a lot of rotation, but everyone is there to play and show 100 per cent in each game.

For over two years, the Democrats have done everything they could to destroy the relationship between the president and his base.

While the compromise clears the path for Pelosi to return to the speaker's chair, it's likely to set off a heated debate within the broader Democratic Caucus. She's been a strong fundraiser and unrelenting liberal who doesn't shy from political combat, and her backers complained that her opponents were mostly white men who were largely more moderate than most House Democrats.

SHAPIRO: So now let's bring in NPR congressional reporter Kelsey Snell to explain how Pelosi managed to come out on top.

Fellow California Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard, the top Democrat on a subcommittee for homeland security spending, said it makes no sense to be "squandering" $5 billion on the wall when the nation has so many other security vulnerabilities.

Other Republicans questioned whether Trump actually committed a crime.

Earlier, many rumors suggested the possible release of the trailer in December. Captain Marvel is set to hit cinemas on March 8, 2019. The release of the two trailers has been swapped.

Some of those senior lawmakers worry that term limits for Democratic leadership will eventually lead to limits on committee leaders. "I think the politics is like looking at mirror images". "If we're going to prosecute people and put them in jail for campaign finance violations, we're going to become a banana republic", said Rand Paul.
