Mike's Blog Round Up

Hullabaloo: Donald Trump wants to fire the Federal Reserve Chairman he just appointed. What could possibly go wrong?

Pharyngula: Turning Point USA’s “Student Action Summit” answers the eternal question: Can just attending a conference result in quantifiable loss of IQ?

No More Mister Nice Blog: After their performance last week, is there any doubt that Republicans in Congress are afraid of their own voters?

Balkinization: Welcome to the Trump Shutdown. What can he legally do with federally spending during and after?

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"We've got to say, 'The debt stops here.' And if liberals in the Senate would rather play political games and force a government shutdown instead of accepting a modest down payment on fiscal discipline and reform, I say: ‘Shut it down.’" (Rep. Mike Pence, April 6, 2011)

Guest blogging Mike's Blog Round Up for the last time this week is Jon Perr from Perrspectives. Send your tips, recommendations, comments and angst to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com.
