KANSAS CITY FEARS EXTENDED GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN AMID CHRISTMAS EVE STOCK MARKET CRASH!!! WILL PREZ TRUMP WIN BORDER WALL FIGHT OR HAS MAGA SIEGE ENDED?!?



There are nearly 50,000 Federal workers in the Kansas City metro and the government shut down during economic distress is first and foremost on their minds this Christmas.

The Federal government is the largest single employer in Kansas City and the current crisis pits security against politics in every way imaginable.

To wit . . .

THE GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN IMPACTS EVERY FACET OF THE KANSAS CITY ECONOMY AS THE NATION'S FINANCIAL SITUATION WORSENS!!!

People typically overextend themselves and their credit cards during the holidays and this time around bad consumer debt might supersede political talking points about the rule of law and border security. However, more strident supporters of President Trump see this effort as a siege of the government status quo and what might be the very last chance to change the course of history before the Democratic majority in Congress assumes power.



Sadly, students of antiquity know The Crusades didn't work out well and in the end they actually had to sell some European children into slavery after high minded ideals didn't hold up to real world challenges.

And so we ask our blog community about their deepest concerns regarding the question of financial stability whilst the rest of the local media is focused on the tracking Santa's sleigh during the shut down . . .

WILL PREZ TRUMP THE BORDER WALL FIGHT AMID THE SHUT DOWN & DOES KANSAS CITY SUPPORT HIS CRUSADE?!?!?

While the urban core and JoCo have voted against MAGA for the most part, the rest of the metro and the surrounding boondocks have stood by the President throughout his tenure. What's important to remember is that all of these voters are in the same boat amid the economic kerfuffle despite their political perspectives. In the end, markets have little respect for politics.

The President always has a way of coming out of these scrapes ahead of the game. I don't put it past him to get the better of the Democratic Party in the end. He really hasn't let them have it on his Twitter. That is just one of the tricks he's got.

If 5000 Al Qaeda terrorists disguised as immigrants and asylum seekers marched across the border the Dems would say Hello Friends! Welcome aboard!

"There is no numerically specific definition of a stock market crash but the term commonly applies to steep double-digit percentage losses in a stock market index over a period of several days."

Wrong again, then.

President Trump wins the government shutdown battle of public opinion while Pelosi/Schumer are branded as out-of-touch obstructionists.

None of the Liberals dirty tactics have taken Trump out yet:
Sabotage the Obama/Trump transition
Bug the Oval Office and Trump Tower to eavesdrop on Trump's plans
Block as many of his appointments as possible
Fabricate Russia-gate
Attempt to smear his family members
Dredge up embarrassing episodes from his years-ago past
And conduct the largest ongoing media hatchet attack on any
sitting President...ever!

Looks like they're now willing to torch the financial markets in a scorched-earth policy to blame President Trump going into the 2020 election cycle. Will it work? Will the masses get pissed off at everybody, and be willing to go down the Democrat Socialist road?

Why all the criticism of the great orange one? Why he's just the bestest president ever. He can even make them UN furriners chuckle when he tells them just hoe great he is. He'll pull this one out. That stock market has gone up before, and he'll make it go up again, even if he has to fire the fed chairman and all them commie fed employees. Why he'll be fed up. Fed up. Get it? That's a joke son, just like he is.

Why is Trump tweeting at the minority Democrats?

Why isn't he collecting money from Mexico.

He promised that would be so easy and only he could do it.

Man up, Trump. Quit hiding in the White House bedroom and keep your promise. Go get Mexico to pay for the wall.

Democrats have voted for so long to protect the border, and now that Trump is President they turn into the biggest hypocrites. They will harm security in a heartbeat over politics.

Does this mean no Blue Angels in 2019?

At least one third of the federal government could shut down permanently and few would notice. It is bloated, under-worked and over-paid.

They are willing indeed to torch the financial markets...that's why the Fed is increasing interest rates. Bill Maher...the atheist gay leftist commenter said he would be willing to see a financial collapse if it meant getting Trump. THEY are the treasonous ones!

4:33 is so right. Why the fed has raised interest rates to an astounding 2.5%, which is just outrageous. The last time rates have been this high was somewhere around 2008, and look where the economy was then! Why rates were 5% during those horrible depression 1990 years. If Trump had his way, rates would be negative 10%, and we'd all be out spending our money because it'd be worth more today than tomorrow. That Trump knows his economics. That and bone spurs kept a truly great economist--truly one of a kind--safe to save democracy and the economy and the American way in our time. And he can build tall buildings!

The Trump shut down is his last dance.

There will be no more Trump at the end of 2019. His administration is a death spiral and there's no help coming from the Republicans. This is it for M.A.G.A. I guess it was fun while it lasted. It sure helped cable TV news ratings.

^^^^ Think again bich.
The Trumpster tricked the Dems.
Their House majority won't mean bupkis in the new year. The voters have spoken.

But who is going to build the wall if not the Mexicans?

This plan doesn't seem workable to me.

Anonymous said...

^^^^ Pay the JoCo contractors to do it. They're the ones paying all the Mexicans for cheap labor anyway.

This is all fun stuff. It'll be fun watching him fold. Ann Coulter's agenda is only popular among the geezers on old talk radio and their business is suffering to. Don't got betting on the Senate Republicans to bail out the President, they've got their own problems.
