The motorcade delivering the top Democrat in the Senate to the White House gates It all seemed like set pieces in a drama whose outcome was already known After all why spend the day amping up the crowd if the show ends not with a cliffhanger but in going off a cliff Despite its predictability this was not the ending the White House had anticipated Friday began lacking urgency Yet there was more than a little apprehension among Republicans on Friday as a clock ticking down to a midnight shutdown in the corner of the three major cable networks The White House dispatched its budget and legislative chiefs to spin reporters in the morning But it was a latent fear not anything that made the pulse race At the Capitol there was amazement that two of the White Houses most valuable players at that hour were preparing to do press over policy shaming over substance It was a made-for-TV moment if ever Trump produced one But at what cost to the actual art of governing Later Trump summoned the top Democrat in the Senate to the White House for 90 minutes of one-on-one negotiating session in the afternoon Tense talks gave way to promises to talk again in a few hours Chuck Schumer the Democratic leader made a brief statement about "good progress" and went behind closed doors to see what if any deal was possible Schumer who is typically loquacious with reporters was unusually curt It was the first sign that both sides were looking for a lifeboat from the sinking raft of government The most curious thing about the Capitol on Friday afternoon when no solution to the partisan stalemate was to be found was just how quiet it was While Schumer was at the White House Senate Republicans took a leisurely lunch together eating barbecue in a dining room across the corridor from the chamber doors The congressional press corps lingered in the hallways waiting for negotiation updates that never came and wondering if UberEats would deliver pizza directly to the Capitol Never mind an imminent federal crisis: when lawmakers emerged from their offices if only to do a quick hit for cable news on said crisis they seemed serene if a little dazed Chalk it up to resignation "The government shuts down in five hours and forty minutes and theres no solution" Sen John Cornyn of Texas the Senates second-ranking Republican told reporters outside of his office as dusk fell on Capitol Hill "I dont know whether Senator Schumer is just determined to take it all down I personally think they got so far out over their skis and now theyre trying to save face" Later in the evening after the vote was clearly doomed the urgency finally reached a crescendo To Republican Sen Lindsey Grahams right Democratic Sen Elizabeth Warren was patting his shoulder in an effort to assure him that all was not lost Bipartisanship was found but far too late Even so Democrats recognized the peril at hand "Thats a hard sell when McConnell doesnt have 50 votes in his own caucus" a senior Democratic aide scoffed when asked about the drama "He cant blame Democrats when Republicans arent voting for it And Trumps standing in the way of a bipartisan deal that could solve all of this" As the clock hands ticked past midnight Republicans Bob Corker Jeff Flake and Lamar Alexander wandered into the Democratic scrum of nearly two dozen senators from both parties huddled around Schumers desk deep in spirited conversation Hope for a last minute deal lingered; at one point Schumer and Graham bumped fists But the lawmakers were still there when the clock struck twelve and the government officially shut down At the Capitol and at the White House officials and their senior aides knew the biggest unknown was the President himself Trump wanted to look tough and savvy the New York real estate mogul sent to Washington to shake up the town He wanted to cow the Democrats and his own Republicans alike An alpha male at his peak at a landmark date on the calendar Throughout the West Wing aides had circled the date in red Sharpie January 20 Saturday marks the one-year anniversary of the Presidents inauguration At just the moment when Trump sought to celebrate at his private club in Florida where tickets started at $100000 per couple no less he was instead watching his government grind to a halt White House officials said Friday morning that the President wouldnt depart until there was a deal although few thought there were any real chances of the President failing to get something in hand Some White House officials scoffed that the suggestion that the President was not well aware of the drama in the making For years he held court as a judge on a top reality show that approximated business acumen Trump prides himself on being a dealmaker of another order This to the minds of Trump apologists was the reason Americans elected him to this role After all during the campaign he boasted that he alone could fix Washington strike better deals and negotiate the United States to unmatched prosperity This was his window to prove them right Shutdowns are seldom good politics especially not for the party that controls the White House An ABC News/Washington Post poll released midday Friday found much more peril in a shutdown for Republicans by a 20 percentage-point margin than Democrats A separate poll from CNN released a few hours later found a similar 16 percentage-point gap Republicans have never before presided over a shutdown while in control of all levers of power in Washington and they were already bracing for a tough 2018 election cycle without the prospect of things falling apart on their watch To perhaps blunt the backlash Republicans were pushing a coordinated message branding this "the Schumer Shutdown" Clever yes Defining maybe But insulting Schumer was unlikely to shake loose his caucus which in recent weeks has seen the number of members willing to vote against stopgap funding bills go from eight on Dec 7 to 30 on Dec 21 Internally senior Democrats expected that number to have grown to at least 40 this week enough to block any continued funding even without expected Republican defections The final vote was 50-49 far short of the 60 votes needed The fact that as time was scarce and the two sides were not talking they were posturing on blame spoke everything There was silence between McConnell and Schumer for most of Friday The White House said Trump was phoning Congress but declined to say who was picking up the phone on the other end There was not even comity to be had when it came to scheduling a vote on the House-passed stopgap measure; everyone expected it to fail but no one could agree to when it would do so well after sundown (The House version narrowly cleared its hurdle on Thursday night sending a dead-on-arrival four-week stopgap measure to the Senate) At first House Republicans were told they were free to go home Then they were told to stay close by in case they needed to pass a brief patch for funding The House is scheduled to be away from Washington next week although aides to leadership said that was also negotiable No one wanted to be among constituents who see the government closed for business while House members cut ribbons on post offices back home As the evening wore on lawmakers and their donors started to sound the alarm a little louder But hard work of compromise during the urgent not the panicked For most of Friday it was open season on the other The House attacked the Senate The Senate attacked the White House Republicans blamed Democrats Each side absorbed the blow and then returned just as good as they got There was no scramble to find compromise No one was offering sacrifice The White House insisted this shutdown would be better than the last that it wouldnt be quite as back as 2013 "We dont want this we do not want a shutdown But Mr Schumer insists on it he is in a position to force this on the American people" White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney told reporters (Yes that is the same Mulvaney who during the 2013 standoff fancied himself a charter member of the Shutdown Caucus) As a reminder that we live in a hyperpartisan election-focused environment most of the talk among leaders in both parties centered on who should carry the blame for a shutdown for most of the day Republicans cast the responsibility on the Democrats the minority party in both the House and Senate Republicans concocted an elaborate trap for those Democrats: the House GOP linked funding for a lapsed childrens health insurance program with the shutdown and dared the Democrats to vote against care for sick kids The Republican talking point cast the deal as a vote against the military in the name of helping children who came to the country illegally That rhetoric was galling to some members of Congress Question a mans judgment fine But his patriotism Thats a whole other matter Democrats in recent weeks have felt emboldened to make their demands The Presidents polling remains mired in the muck The Dreamers are increasingly organized DACA is popular inside both parties and shows no sign of relenting especially as its future is uncertain "We are frustrated obviously" White House legislative chief Marc Short said Friday "They are hellbent on getting to a shutdown" he said of the Democrats Left unsaid Trump set this in motion by ending the DACA program promising to restore it if Congress brought him legislation and then balked when his far-right advisers erupted The White House also said the bipartisan deal being shopped in the Senate was fake news "There is no bill Show me the bill" White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley scoffed Then a third possible message coming from the same 18 acres that make up the White House complex Mulvaney sought to say DACA could wait "Theres no reason you have to deal with DACA this week" he said at the White House Actually thats not true If Republicans need Democratic votes to keep open the doors of government then DACA needs to be dealt with when the Democrats say so Otherwise getting to 60 votes required in the Senate is impossible At the same time Republicans were starting to splinter Graham said he would not vote for another temporary funding plan"I am not going to support continuing this fiasco for 30 more days" Graham tweeted "Its time Congress stop the cycle of dysfunction grow up and act consistent with the values of a great nation" A few hours later when reporters spotted him on the White House driveway and swarmed him budget maven Mulvaney moved the goalpost of getting a funding deal in place to before businesses were supposed to open on Monday He said Senators may opt to modify the House version perhaps move it from a four-week to 10-day extension for instance thus requiring the House to vote again "If the Senate changes anything its going to have to back to the House Now in theory the Senate could deal with it before midnight and the House could in some fashion deal with it before midnight" he said "Its more likely that if the Senate makes any changes it would take the House a while to get everybody back for the vote" Meanwhile the President was tweeting that he wanted to have a month-long delay After the House version failed the White House press secretary called those who blocked it "obstructionist losers" McConnell took the Senate floor ahead of the vote to demand his rivals drop their objections But in doing so he signaled that he wasnt even looking for anything durable just another can kicked down the road "Lets fund the government for a full month so we can actually get something done" McConnell said In the Senate where Democratic lawmakers privately questioned if they had overplayed their hand as they shuffled out of the Capitol on Thursday doubts faded by Friday evening The Republican effort to spin not negotiate solutions played right into Democrats hands senior Democrats felt Republicans continued to sputter their objections and tried to make process their friend "They have their fingerprints all over this" Ryan said of the Democrats"This is legislative hostage-taking" Maybe But they made their demands and Republicans would do well to remember them if they want government open on Monday morning Write to Philip Elliott at [email protected] that story about China unbolting its ironclad gates to foreign game system sales back in January It looks like Microsoft’s going to be one of the first foreign companies to walk through taking its Xbox One where no Xbox has (legally) gone before: Microsoft says its flagship games console will go on sale in China this September It’s part of a deal with China-based media conglomerate BesTV a subsidiary of Shanghai Media Group that describes itself as “principally engaged in the provision of technical services content services and marketing services for TV terminals computer terminals and mobile terminals through media source platforms” China instigated a ban on selling game consoles not made by Chinese companies back in 2000 The ban included unscientific concerns about players’ mental well-being and in the end probably had more to do with keeping foreign corporations out But the games market in 2014 is a totally different animal (among other things it’s far more lucrative) and you have to assume the Chinese government’s motivations are economic — that Chinas State Council views the financial rewards now outweighing any supposed cultural concerns China’s the most populous nation on the planet after all with over half a billion gamers (according to Microsoft) It’s also long been a wellspring for design essentials like asset creation — one of the most expensive aspects of large-scale game design — in games played everywhere else So Microsoft’s Yusuf Mehdi isn’t just grandstanding in the following video when he says there’s an “opportunity to create globally and locally created content” That’s already been happening in spite of the ban for years After China lifted the ban in January foreign companies were to seek the approval of the Chinese government to get officially green-lit to make and sell game systems in the country Microsoft seems to have done this very quickly and its gateway in (and perhaps government-liaised gatekeeper) will be BesTV (And isn’t it interesting that US-based Microsoft is first through the door not Sony or Nintendo both Japan-based companies which may or may not have anything to do with historical China-Japan tensions) Not that selling popular foreign game consoles is any kind of business bonanza guarantee As Games in Asia noted last September it’s not like China’s gaming demographic is on tenterhooks to buy Xboxes and PlayStations and Wii Us through legitimate channels The gray market already handles most of that demand and it sounds like it’ll probably be significantly more expensive to go through legit channels once you factor in the cost of new games (to say nothing of piracy’s impact) Regardless it’ll be fascinating to watch what happens this fall and how it’ll impact Sino-American relations rolling forward Write to Matt Peckham at [email protected] Donald Trump on Saturday called for a Montana senator to resign after he accused White House physician Dr Ronny Jackson of misconduct while in the White House Jackson who Trump had nominated to lead the US Department of Veteran’s Affairs withdrew from consideration after lawmakers including Montana Sen Jon Tester accused Jackson of drinking on the job distributing medication without prescriptions and creating a hostile work environment Jackson has denied the allegations but still withdrew his bid to lead the government’s second-largest agency After earlier suggesting that Jackson drop out Trump leapt to Jackson’s defense on Saturday even calling for Tester’s resignation “Allegations made by Senator Jon Tester against Admiral/Doctor Ron Jackson are proving false” Trump tweeted Saturday “The Secret Service is unable to confirm (in fact they deny) any of the phony Democrat charges which have absolutely devastated the wonderful Jackson family Tester should resign”
