  • Pence blames Democrats for shutdown
    “We have soldiers that are headed down range to Kuwait for six months in a critical theater to serve the country, and yet because of Democrats in the Senate, they have anxiety about their pay. It’s disappointing to every American that Democrats would shut down the government at a time when we have troops in harms way.” - Vice President Mike Pence, reacting to the government shutdown during a refueling stop in Ireland, where he met with U.S. soldiers. Pence arrived in Cairo hours after Congress and President Donald Trump failed to reach agreement on a plan to avert a partial federal closure. In 2011 as a member of Congress, Pence pushed for a government shutdown over right to life issues. Pence went ahead with his four-day trip to the Middle East, citing national security and diplomatic reasons. Pence's meeting with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi is expected to delve into security cooperation between the two countries.

  • A president and a porn star
    The coming government shutdown has obscured and muted reaction to the Wall Street Journal story that our president had to pay $130,000 to silence his sexual tryst with a porn star Stormy Daniels. His lawyer set up a corporation in Delaware to shield the payoff just before the November 2016 election. In normal times, that would generate yuuuuuge headlines (among other things) and imperil a presidency (right, Bill Clinton?). 

    These are not normal times as President Trump has placed the bar so low that Americans (including the president’s evangelical supporters) appear willing to accept a man sexually involved with a porn star while his new wife was pregnant. Whew. You can read Stormy describe her activities with the future president with this In Touch Interview.

    As for this shutdown, to our Members of Congress, the reaction to this mess on the ground here is that Hoosiers are disgusted, but not surprised. Hoosiers want decisions made. They don’t want the can kicked down the road to February. Many voted for President Trump not only as a disrupter, but to cut deals and get things done. They want CHIP restored. They want our Dreamer Hoosiers to be able to stay in the only country they know and love. They want the military fully funded. They want more than payments to porn stars. Ya know, the more I think about this, the more wag-the-dog it feels. Want to overshadow the president-pays-off-the-porn-star story? Well, just shut the government down. Think about it: With this president, that notion really isn't that far of a stretch. - Brian A. Howey, publisher
