It’s Shut Down Friday! As of this morning, we are on a path toward a government shutdown by midnight tonight unless the Senate agrees to pass the House’s continuing resolution for the budget. The GOP is doing its best to hold children’s health hostage and stage a conflict between children’s health v. undocumented immigrants. So far, Senate Democrats and a handful of Republicans are not willing to vote for the CR unless a DACA solution and funding for children’s health care. Will Senate Democrats be able to hold their ground, or will they flinch? In the meantime, Trump seems committed launching mass deportations. Trump’s deportations still have not reached Obama levels, but they are on their way and accompany an overt racist message. Remember, we’re just a week out from Trump’s “shithole” comments. Good thing Stormy Daniels is there to provide for some distraction. She says she can describe Trump’s junk perfectly. Fracking lobbyists plan to spend big at Trump’s DC hotel. No conflicts of interest there. Department of Health and Human Services, HHS, announces a new “Conscience and Religious Freedom Division.” Are we seeing the rise of an Appalachian Norma Rae? Paula Jean Swearengin will be taking on Joe Manchin in WV Democratic primary. Department of Justice drops charges against 129 J20 defendants. And Congressional Republicans using US Capitol Police to go after “Alt-Left,” aka constituents, who speak out against their disastrous policies.
Daryl Metcalfe says only Mommies and Daddies can be on birth certificates. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette posts Op-Ed defending racism on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Pittsburgh’s largest philanthropic organization, the Heinz Foundation, gives the Post-Gazette the Game of Thrones “shame” treatment. Note to our readers: Sean has not officially made his first Game of Thrones reference. Not sure he’s actually watched the series yet, though. The Newspaper Guild of Pittsburgh pens a letter to the Post-Gazette editors denouncing the racist editorial. The Post-Gazette declines to publish so the Guild published it on Facebook. Pennsylvania Democrats finally drafting a sexual harassment plan in the year and a half since a delegate was assaulted at the 2016 DNC Convention. Pennsylvania Gerrymandering case throwing out the Congressional maps makes it to the heavily Democratic State Supreme Court. PASSHE begins a search for a new chancellor. They are seeking a “Seeks ‘visionary’ leader to guide System Redesign.” And, the Keystone Progress Summit in Harrisburg is right around the corner!
On today’s Last Call: The privatization of space not off to a great start as Space X and Boeing are behind schedule to get humans to the International Space Station. Is Luxembourg positioning itself to be the Mecca for the privatization of space? You can watch the NFC Championship game between the Eagles and the Vikings this coming Sunday in the Free Will Brewing taproom in Perkasie if you’re in the area. Saucony Creek Brewery just spilled the beans on their upcoming Mardi Gras release: “Buckwheat Kingcake.” Pizza Boy releases barrel aged wild sour, Blueberry Permasmile.
