Woodward: We’re in a ‘Governing Crisis’ — ‘This Is Not Just Another Government Shutdown’
During Wednesday’s “New Day” on CNN, journalist Bob Woodward commented on the ongoing partial government shutdown along with Secretary of Defense Gen. James Mattis’ departure, calling what is going on right now in the White House a “governing crisis.”
“It’s a governing crisis,” Woodward stated. “[W]e better face the reality. This is a dangerous time. This is not just another government shutdown or another example of this impasse. It is something people better think about.

Are we really in a governing crisis? Sometimes I wonder whether we are in a reporting crisis. That is, with the drop in the market over the 22 and 24th followed by the surges on the 26th and 27th, I wonder about the power of the media to both shape and withhold information. I think of the second year of over 90% negative coverage of Trump while they continue to suck up to the head of Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the NSA scandal, the IRS scandal, and too many other scandals to list here.
What would happen if we did not have a partisan press?
Liberal hyperbole as they try to take advantage of things they oppose
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says Jesus was a ‘refugee’ in Christmas tweet
Despite the fact that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez unconditionally supports “a woman’s freedom of choice,” belongs to the party that booed God at its last convention, and makes sport of subverting Christians’ religious rights, she now wants to glom onto the sympathy for the Christ Child as she has been reported by Houston Fox affiliate in a 26 December 2018 article to have claimed the manger-ridden Jesus to be a refugee.
U.S. Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., wished her Twitter followers a Merry Christmas Tuesday by referring to the newborn Jesus as a “refugee.”
“Joy to the World!” Ocasio-Cortez wrote. “Merry Christmas everyone – here’s to a holiday filled with happiness, family, and love for all people. (Including refugee babies in mangers + their parents.)”

Mary and Joseph are not depicted as refugees in the Nativity story. According to the Gospel of Luke, Joseph brings the pregnant Mary to Bethlehem so that he may enroll in a census ordered by the Roman emperor Augustus. The couple are forced to take shelter in the stable where Jesus is born due to a lack of room at the inn.
However, in the Gospel of Matthew, Mary and Joseph flee into Egypt with the infant Jesus after King Herod of Judea orders the murder of every boy aged two and under in Bethlehem after the Magi ask him where to find the newborn “King of the Jews.” The Holy Family escape the slaughter and are told by an angel to return to Israel once Herod is dead.

I can pray for this leader and show love to her; however, I cannot be quiet, because she has been (1) just making political points using the name of Jesus and (2) acting as a vocal opponent to Christian causes like the fight for life and the struggle for religious rights within our society. To remain quiet would mean denying my Christian brothers and sisters.
I am getting sick and tired of leftists claiming Jesus was a refugee. He wasn't even born when his parents were mov… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…—

Liberal hyperbole on a lie
Newsweek falsely reports on Trump visit to troops
Donald Trump is the first U.S. president to not visit troops over the Christmas holiday since 2002. On Tuesday morning, Trump continued the presidential tradition of telephoning military personnel, using the occasion to address the partial government shutdown over funding for his long- promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. But did not visit with any troops in person.
His actions stood in contrast with last year’s, when Trump spoke with wounded veterans at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on December 21, bestowing the Purple Heart on one injured soldier and praising military personnel as “some of the bravest people anywhere in the world.”
But this year he sidestepped that tradition. Between 2009 and 2016, President Barack Obama visited with troops stationed at Marine Corps Base Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay, every year over Christmas, NBC reported, while President George W. Bush visited Walter Reed every Christmas between 2003 and 2008, passing on the opportunity in 2002 and 2001.
In yesterday’s call with U.S. troops stationed abroad, Trump used the time to reassert his position that the government shutdown would not end until he received $5 billion for his long-promised border wall.

Sometimes, I wish they would try to check their information instead of just publishing things that help Democrats and hurt conservative Republicans.
Donald and Melania Trump make surprise visit to US troops in Iraq
President Trump, who has been criticized for not visiting US troops during the holidays, slipped off to an air base in Iraq on Wednesday.
Trump, wearing a dark suit and red tie, and first lady Melania Trump met with military personnel on Wednesday at Al Asad Air Base in Iraq just west of Baghdad – his first visit with military members in a war zone since he entered the White House almost two years ago.
He told the gathered servicemen and women, many of whom were wearing fatigues, that he has “no plans at all” to pull them out of the country, where they’ve been helping Iraq forces battle Islamic State terrorists.
The commander-in-chief also defended his controversial decision to withdraw the 2,000 US troops in Syria that are leading a global coalition against the terror group.
