That Ridiculous Omnibus – A Frogleg Minute


Nobody on our side likes that $1.3 trillion crap budget… not me, not you, and not President Trump, but contrary to some of the hysterics— Trump has betrayed no one.  But I do believe he was uncharacteristically ‘caught off guard’  and this was definitely a score for the Deep State.

BUT it’s important to understand this ‘budget that’s not really a budget’ only has a shelf life of 5 months– expiring 6 weeks before the mid-term elections.  Methinks Trump is picking this time-frame for the Budget Battle.

This was a sucker-punch by the Swamp Creatures…. and Trump was embarrassed by this.

This Omnibus put together by Mitch McConnell & Paul Ryan, was a designed Catch 22— no matter what Trump did– he would alienate supporters.

When the end of September rolls around—and the Mid Term Budget Battle begins, Trump will not be embarrassed  again.

Even Joe Montana threw some interceptions.

Tell me what you think.  Do you agree? Disagree?  And/or think I’m full of crap?  Comment.

    I agree with you, but you’re still full of crap………we may be cousins. 🙂

    I agree that you are an idiot.

    No excuses for Trump. He was disengaged, and didn’t fight for any of his campaign promises. In fact, the only thing he has fought for is DACA illegals. He had a royal flush and decided to fold. Let the Dems win in November. I prefer to face my attackers head-on than get stabbed in the back like DACA Don did to us.

    Omnibus Bill is NOT a Federal Budget

    An Omnibus Spending Bill may have some ‘instructions’ as to how the money will be spent…but Obama ignored them. He spent the money, or didn’t spend it, however he wanted to. And Congress didn’t do a thing about it! Because they couldn’t..

    I think our President observed how this happened, year after year. He is bound to realize that those ‘appropriations’ for different things in these Omnibus bills…are merely ‘suggestions’.

    So like Obama, Pres Trump can spend this money on whatever he wants to. Or…not spend it.

    Planned Parenthood? What if our President decided to tell the Treas Dept to ‘slow-walk’ that money to Planned Parenthood…until the Senate gets off their ass and confirms his appointees?

    Sanctuary Cities? What if our President decided to ‘slow-walk’ that money too…until those Sanctuary Cities assist ICE in rounding up criminal illegal aliens?

    Splodey heads? From the Dems and the Enemedia? Why yes. There would be a colorful display of splodey heads.

    But what could they do about it. Hah.

    Our President could just say…’What! Congress should’ve passed a Budget.’

    done finished…research was done…and it is so very humorous actually….our VSG..just said just give me money for the military and the wall…put anything else you want in it…and those goofballs did.

    In this case, as per above….he doesn’t have to spend a dime….because it is not a budget…and even if it was…researched….he could still spend as he please… Congress appropriates….up to the President to spend it…or not….as he pleases..

    If anyone disagrees, I can go back and get the links and evidence, but if you just read yesterdays political thread…Wheatietoo and I laid it all out for all…Wheatietoo did most of the work and put together the consolidated update as per above….

    Again, that is why Obama never had a Budget in his Presidency…Congress did continual Omibus’s and he just took the money….for 8 years…and no one seems to know where it went…”

    I tend to agree with Joe Dan, they painted him into a corner.
    In order to get his spending for the military, he had to sign it. General Mattis talked him into that.
    Now that that is done, watch out.
    I think the gloves are off now.
    There will be no more capitulation.

    The swamp creatures use “Military Funding” to extort from every budget. Either conservatives have serious ADD or they actually believe everything they hear on MSM.
    Lets stop being the world police. Close our borders and stop paying our enemies to be our friends. Quit funding all the left-wing organizations like National Public Radio and the National Endowment for the Arts. There are hundreds of these partisan organizations who have never met a conservative they didn’t hate. Mandate Term Limits and force the swamp creatures out! The water will filter itself if the scum producers are removed.
    Fire at least half the bureaucrats! Trump should immediately march out the bureaucrats responsible for writing this monstrosity Omnibus Bill. He should line them up on the stage and tell the world who these people are and how they came to hold such powers. Then he should say, this is how we’re going to change it.

      Like the Healthcare bill this Omnibus has probably been sitting in a drawer waiting on the Beast that didn’t win, in the last minute they added things like no concrete, a fence only, just to slap Trump. I hope and pray the Swamp Monsters will get their day and I will be alive to see it.

  • PainesGHOST

    Just like everybody panicking about the DACA thing when President Trump was giving the Demonrats enough rope to hang themselves. They did, proving to the American public that the entire party has gone off the rails.

    The RINOS just proved, beyond any excuses or rational thinking that they are NOT on our side. Anybody that still thinks that the Republican Party is actually Republican, raise your hand.

    Didn’t think so.

    Now, everybody BREATHE. Wait. President Trump has been stabbed in the back by OUR “representatives” and almost certainly has a plan to get the wall built. The Army Corps of Engineers could build it using some of the additional cash the budget for the military.

  • FUBAR=100%P_O

    Go Israelis on OUR collective southern “Expressway North” border! Send in the ACTIVE MILITARY to support I.C.E & C.B.P at a rate of one platoon per individual agent! Use of Force? By all means for any form of projectile from rocks & bottles to bullets!

    I’m not happy about it. I got kicked off of The Donald on Reddit because I expressed my displeasure. This was a clear set up which a lot of us saw as soon as we got wind of it. I hate that he got hoodwinked by McConnell and Ryan. I wished he had shut down the government and made them go back and to the table-if nothing else then to show who won the election. I don’t know if he’ll get another bite at the apple in September. I’m hoping I can find enough faith to jump back on the Trump Train but for now, I got off at the station on Friday and am taking a wait and see approach.

    This was an omnibus bill NOT a BUDGET BILL long term. What Trump does best is give the Dems a little so-called victory, then turn it back on them. Like the wall. He is having the Army Corp of Engineers start the wall with part of the increase in military spending. PLUS, Obammy never passed an actual budget bill they were always Omnibuses. Why? Because he then spent the money the way he wanted to spend it. Do not think Trump will let this slide. Remember the “trade wars” that had everyone all scared. His hard line is now beginning to bear fruit. He knows how to run a business and the US is a business. You pick your battles and the ones that did not come out the way you wanted you go back to the drawing board. He is always two steps ahead of the Dimwits. He SAID he will never sign another bill like this again. When does this one expire? In September right before mid-term elections. Just what do you think Donald has is store for the Dems and Rhino’s. Stay tuned. It will be a ride but a fascinating lesson in how to beat your enemies at their own game!!

    If it is true that what is included in the omnibus are just suggestions, then I’d like to see Trump take the money allocated to Planned Parenthood, NPR, endowment for the arts and other non-essentials and allocate that money to the wall. However, if these are just suggestions, then why did they get so specific about what he could use the wall money for? (fencing and repairs to fencing only.) So that’s the one side of me talking. The other side if me is still entirely pissed that we added another $1.3 trillion to the debt.

    Great production, as always. The message is spot-on, too.
