Todd Starnes Show – Jan 22


12:05pm- #SchumerShutdown! The Trump White House and Capitol Hill Republicans cranked up the pressure Monday on Democrats to abandon their immediate demands for immigration measures and vote in support of a temporary spending bill to end a government shutdown now in its third day. “They shut down the government,” White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told “Fox & Friends” on Monday morning. “The pressure is on them.” President Trump tweeted that Democrats shut down the government to appease the “far left base” and are now “powerless” to change course. “The Democrats are turning down services and security for citizens in favor of services and security for non-citizens. Not good!” he tweeted. A critical test vote is now set for noon on a measure to fund the government through Feb. 8. The vote would end a Democratic filibuster that forced the shutdown overnight Friday – and could require nearly a dozen total votes from Democratic members this time around. The noon vote will be the GOP-controlled Senate’s second attempt to break the filibuster, after failing to get the required 60 votes Friday. But whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has the votes remains unclear. Republicans have a 51-49 member majority in the Senate. The Friday night vote was 50-49.

Across the globe, hundreds of thousands rallied Saturday at the second Women’s March on the one-year anniversary of President Trump’s inauguration and in support of the #MeToo movement against sexual assault and harassment. An adviser to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said 200,000 people marched in Mr. Trump’s hometown. The New York City march snaked through Central Park West and went past his former home at Trump Tower.  Mr. Trump tweeted Saturday to encourage the protesters to celebrate the “historic milestones” and “wealth creation” since he was sworn into office last January.

The award-winning Juilliard-educated band seeks to combine technical skill with showmanship and features dueling strings in passages both virtuosic and lyrical. Annie Moses Band is in NYC for a return appearance tonight at the Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall to perform “Rhapsody in Bluegrass: The Art of American Music” – a cinematic and rhapsodic take on the music of America, including its rendition of the George Gershwin classic “Rhapsody in Blue.”
