Speaker of the House John Boehner addresses the 113th Congress in the Capitol in WashingtonThe Senate blocked President Trump from being able to make recess appointments on Thursday as lawmakers leave Washington for their summer break.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), doing wrap up for the entire Senate, locked in nine “pro-forma” sessions — brief meetings that normally last roughly a minute.
The move, which requires the agreement of every senator, means the Senate will be in session every three business days throughout the August recess.
The Senate left D.C. on Thursday evening with most lawmakers not expected to return to Washington until after Labor Day.

    What a shame that the pro-killing of the unborn senators have a loggerhold on the United States Senate. They allowed Obama to make appointments, did they not? We know that Collins and Murkowski want Planned Parenthood to have their $555 million of taxpayer money, so they can continue to be the largest provider of abortion in the USA, plus make more money off selling the babies’ body parts for research. Guess McCain thinks the same way, along with the other 4. Just think about the Jackson Lab in Maine–

    Amazing we see now truth, the light came on, the whores in bed with our government exposed, all of Congress deserves an enema. So nothing done with O but look at the action going on with Trump. This is proof positive our enemies are not Russia but Congress. The Politburo rises.

    Fire cleans forests floors of the weeds strangling it, so let us burn out these weeds.

    Why don’t we sue the senate for obstructionism? Is that possible?

    I hope these restrictions will apply to ALL future Presidents. I hope that the Republicans will ensure that these will apply to any future Democrat President and that that President will be treated with the same level of contempt that they are treating the current President. I also wonder if the media and the Democrats (redundant) will be as critical of future Presidents as they are of this one; if they will go out of their way to continue to report false stories, shape the narrative and opinion then act all surprised that the people they poll respond when they parrot the lies and false stories that they reported in the first place. (How many more times do we have to hear that Trump fired Comey because he asked for more money for an investigation, even after it was proved false?)

      Here’s a possible answer to your question about hearing that Trump fired Comey over a budget request, even though it’s false: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the [Deep] State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the [Deep] State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the [Deep] State.” {Addendum: The “Deep State” includes the Mainstream Media, and Lobbyists for special interests, as well as their political enablers who are the “Inside the Beltway, Good Old Boys”, Swamp Vermin.}
