TKC Question: Will Kansas City Still Love Prez Trump After Missing Paycheck?!?!



There is a justified debate regarding a crisis at the border but there is no question that more than 50K Kansas City federal workers are eager to move past the current government shut down.

To wit . . .

THERE IS NO POLITICIAN MORE POPULAR OR BELOVED THAN A PAYCHECK!!! 

Accordingly . . .

HOW LONG WILL KANSAS CITY CONSERVATIVES STAY LOYAL TO PREZ TRUMP AS THE SHUT DOWN DRAGS ON?!?

Even the Wall Street Journal wonders how long the GOP will support the Prez as the Commander-In-Chief confronts growing criticism from is own party.

Local news on the topic . . .

Kansas City Gets Serious

Kansas City families prepare for payday with no pay

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- Hundreds of demonstrators are expected outside of Union Station Thursday for a rally to reopen the government, where just across the street is the IRS building, where employees are working without pay. A correctional officer spoke with KCTV5 Wednesday ahead of the challenges his family will face as this shutdown fight continues.


KC Talkers Take On Prez

Seg. 1: The Shutdown Show. Seg 2: General Hospital #2.

Segment 1: Kansas City stories about the federal government shutdown. From an entrepreneur whose plans to open his own business have been thwarted, to the federal employee who made the daunting decision to borrow against her pension. Hear stories from Kansas Citians whose lives are in limbo on day 18 of a federal government shutdown.


Smallish Protest Today

Federal employees in Kansas City demand shutdown ends

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- People from around the country will protest and demand that the government reopens Thursday. In fact, a rally is planned right in Downtown Kansas City. Hundreds of demonstrators are expected outside Union Station today for the KC Local Federal Employees Rally Against Shutdown which is next to the IRS building.


And so . . .

Forgive our skepticism but we're open to any reasoning explaining how Prez Trump can win the shut down border wall debate after he has "taken the mantle" for the impasse and keeping hundreds of thousands of workers from their jobs.

You decide . . .

A federal employee union shutdown protest? Anyone going to get pictures? I’m sure there will be some freaks and weirdos turning it into a anti trump rally. Trump isn’t getting impeached and there was no Russian collusion. What a bunch of zombies marching to the commands of Hillary Clinton and her friends in the media who pushed the false narratives.


Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is just as toxic as Gender Confusion Disorder (GCD). Both mental illnesses are often found to be co existing and related.

Nothing to lose for Trump.

For example, the DOJ political contributions are 95% for Democrats. Federal Employees already hate Donald Trump. They were NEVAR going to vote for him anyway. Kansas City is a Democrat, violence ridden, gang banger town full of Progressives who love Democrats and tax and spend fantasies like "The New Green Deal". Fuck 'em.

KEEP IT SHUT DOWN!!!!

^^^@ 9:36AM-Thanks grandpa. We don't want or need the opinion of a worthless geriatric who shits on people who work for a living. It sounds like you also have a case of Hillary Derangement syndrome to deal with as well. Oh. there was collusion, the Manafort memo released by the DOJ this week confirms it. Stick to tapioca old-timer. You don't know shit!

Yes President Trump is the best president we have ever had, and the Siamese twins Pelosi and Schumer are trying to play tough. Not going to happen, and anyone with half a brain knows the democrats want to control the people keep you broke and bring in a totalitarian way of life.

We will not get paid this weekend and that's fine with me I still stand with Trump, it takes a brave person to do what he is doing for the people and the country. Democrats and RINO'S have walked all over us and we have had enough!

@9:47AM. Trump already lost. Anybody who gloats while people who work for living don't get paid, is an un-American piece of dog shit. Your ignorant line that Federal Employees are against Trump is made-up bullshit to further your anti-Trump narrative. Trump is out in six months and all your idiotic rhetoric won't change that. You backed a con-man, Russian puppet, moron.

Look up today’s news article “THINGS DEMOCRATS HAVE FUNDED THAT COST MORE THAN THE BORDER WALL”


If the American public actually was informed we wouldn’t have this debate. $6 billion annually for sugar subsidies? As fat as a nation as we are we spend billions on sugar subsidies. Id like to see us stop funding abortions in other countries, but the democrats would say that’s blocking access to “women’s heath” or “family planning”. Sickos.

^^all well and good dumbass except the democrats did appropriate $1.6 billion for border security and your man-baby president turned it down because a pill-popping addict told him to. The more you know! Your false narrative just exploded in your face.

Anonymous said...

Interesting that the shutdowns during Obama's terms did not create any resistance, protesting, negative narrative from the media, or shouting back and forth.

The only difference between then and now is President Trump who is trying to hold Congress accountable for what they supported in the past and what the people elected President Trump for. President Trump is also trying to protect our country from an illegal invasion from the south. The media is hysterical about this because of their hate and bias for President Trump.

10:24 is correct. Trump is holding congress accountable for the choices they made. All these leftists politicians crying about the wall they in fact openly supported. Just go to YouTube and look it up. Now just because trump is president they pretend like they never supported border security. So when you see people like 10:22 trying to be a spin doctor and the other losers saying trump is somehow going to jail just brush them off like the fleas that they are. Sure are a lot of science deniers in that group too refusing to acknowledge that there are only two genders. Male and female.

^^Trump said Mexico's paying for the wall. Why do the American Taxpayers have to now. Democrats approved $1.6 billion for border security, Trump turned it down. That means they support border security. Fact: Nobody wants a wall, it's a waste of resources. Fact: The majority of Americans do not support the wall. This is till a democracy. Fact: Trump had two years to get his wall when he had both the house and senate. He did not pass even one bill for it. Those are the facts.

The evidence is overwhelming.

Fuck 'em. Trump should let 'em swing in the wind. The very DOJ employees, who are, even now, engaged in a seditious, treasonous, illegal, premeditated attempt to remove him from office in a "soft coup" will NEVAR vote for him. Government employees are Deep State supporting Fascists (With few exceptions) that encourage Star Chamber type trials, seek a soup de jour interpretation of the Constitution based on talking points from their Marxist Stalinist thought leaders and actively seek the suppression of the truth and the promotion of lies through the MSM Pravda-Democrat establishment.

Keep it shut down forever.

Fire them all, break all government unions and start over.

^^^ Typical rupuklican. Fuck due process and the rule of law.

I know you're pissed that Trump has no idea what he's doing and couldn't get Mexico to pay for his wall. He can't remember his promises now and denies he said Mexico would pay for it. He can't even remember how he acted in yesterday's meeting.

Trump got his ass kicked in the midterms and there will be no wall. We won't let him take private property via executive order.

Try supporting a competent leader next time. If you don't like it, Russia would welcome your type.

11:18 trump didn’t get his ass kicked in the mid terms. It’s normal for the president to lose seats in mid terms. You want to see an ass kicking? Look at Obama’s mid term results. Even Obama said he got a shellacking in 2010 when he lost 60....yes 60 house seats. So take your manipulated misinformed ass somewhere else you dummy.

chuck said...

11:18 Due Process my ass.

Unelected, highly stationed bureaucrats in the DOJ, FBI, CIA, DNI and State Department, at the behest of the former administration, with premeditated, criminal intent, initiated a counter intelligence operation, complete with moles, "anonymous sources", plants, set ups (Misfud, Halper, entrapping Carter Page and George Popodpolous.), then acquired illegally, wire taps on the Trump campaign and unmasked over 200 people.

It's a fuckin national disgrace and the most egregious abuse of power scandal in the nation's history. Were it not for the necrotic, lisckspittle, liberal, 4th estate, Pulitzers would be falling from the sky at the location of ANY journalistic publication with ANY pretense of maintaining heretofore acceptable journalistic standards.

Instead, we, as a nation, are deprived of the truth in lieu of agitprop from press pack dogs who seek elbow room at the table of the powerful scofflaws and politicians, who in concert with multinational corporations (That by the way, you dumb fuck, hate you too.) run this country.

The Mueller investigation is the actual cover up for the malfeasance and corruption that occurred during your Boi Obama's administration.

Due Process.

Yeah right, shut the fuck up idiot.

^^Sorry Chuck, no. Trump is a con-man thief, liar, and Russian puppet. No amount of "deep state" conspiracy theory bullshit & tin-foil hat stupidity will change that. You cannot explain away all of that criminal malfeasance of his administration. He is going to face justice very soon. Your disconnect from reality is almost as troubling as your propensity to plagiarize all your posts and pass them off as your own.

When someone purposely obstructs our President’s actions and attempts to protect the Border Patrol, Law Enforcement and the US Citizens, isn’t this a treasonous act? Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. Well we sure no doubt have those who wish to give aid to those who never think twice about harming the citizens of this country. While Mexico might not be our enemy they sure are the receivers of billions of dollars courtesy of the legal residents of the United States. I say to bypass these democratic two faced politicians/criminals and declare a National Emergency. Get the border secured as much as possible as soon as possible.

I can't believe all of these federal employees who donated to Hilary, but likely received tax breaks because of trump, live paycheck-to-paycheck. To be fair, they aren't even out a paycheck yet. Tomorrow is payday. And, have you seen how federal employees work? I wouldn't exactly label them, "hard working." Compare what they do, their benefits, etc., to non-federal employees. I don't want to hear their whining.

Anyone who knows Dump knows that he will do ANYTHING to get his way. He's best at bankruptcy, and that's what he is trying to do to the country. Meanwhile, today, the Russians pulled their 140 Billion dollar cash reserves out of USD and invested it in the Yen.

This border wall issue is going to look like a game of Legos next to what is going to happen economically to this country. The wall is all a distraction and diversion.

If Obama had ever asked for the power to seize private property, the right wing would have rightly revolted over an illegal unconstitutional power grab.

When Trump threatens to declare a (fake) emergency to take private property, conservatives don't care. You are all dangerous hypocrites.

Before you 'Build That Wall', you have to 'Steal That Land'. If we still have an co-equal independent judicial branch, they will stop him. But Trump and the GOP have packed the courts over the last 2 years, so in the words and motto of a shitty president, 'who knows, we'll see what happens'.

Good luck with all your broken norms and new precedents when the next Democrat gets the White House in 2020. You allowed the office of the presidency to act with the powers of an autocrat. You will regret it.

No. The 'investigation' has been a clown show from the beginning. It isn't conspiracy, it's well documented fact--two investigators had to be let go because of their rabid anti-Trump stance, the FISA warrant was obtained fraudulently, and the investigation has stumbled around looking for a focus since the beginning. When Russians showed up that Mueller had named as co conspirators to deny it, Mueller ran for cover. And it goes on and on.

This is important because a reckless keystone cops shit show like this hurts everyone. Try to control your shrieking rage for just one second please.

And I didn't vote for Trump, so let me take care of your strawman early. ;)

So desperate for anything that looks like a win. Blue wave? A drop in the bucket compared to the damage Obama did losing close to 1,000 seats at many levels during his tenure. So hey you might break even if you keep it up.

Trump will win easily because the Dems haven't figured out that radical progressive politics won't elect a president anymore.

Enjoy!

The wall is silly grandstanding. Trump builds skyscrapers in Manhattan so don’t tell me he couldn’t have built the wall if he had wanted to especially when he still had both houses of Congress.

Cleaver should come out for the wall in exchange for a big federal pork check for the toy train extension. But cleaver is a useless empty suit.

Mexico is reinforcing its southern border after reports of a new migrant caravan forming in Central America which is set to leave within days for a northbound journey to the US-Mexico border, reports Multimedios.

Mexico's Interior Secretary, Olga Sánchez Cordero, said that the country's 12 entry points and 379 known illegal crossings will be strengthened to stem the flow of migrants crossing into the country.

Migrants entering Mexico will need to provide personal information, biometric data, the reason for their entry and official identification, according to Sánchez Cordero. Anyone who fails to comply will be deported.

Meanwhile, Mexico's undersecretary for human rights, Alejandro Encinas Rodriguez said that migrants wishing to cross through Mexico to reach the United States will need a visa issued by the US or they will not be allowed in.
