There have been 17 government shutdowns in modern US history — here's how they went down

harry reid shutdown

  • The deadline to avoid a government shutdown is fast approaching.
  • The federal government has entered a shutdown 17 times since the modern budgeting process began.
  • Most of those times the shutdown has been short and not involved employees being sent home, but that has changed in recent shutdowns.


With the Senate at an impasse and the Friday-night deadline looming, the odds of a partial shutdown of the federal government are growing by the minute.

If the federal government does enter a shutdown, it will be the 18th since the Budget Act of 1974 brought in the modern funding process.

Most of these shutdown weren't severe, with 10 of the 17 lasting five days or fewer, and eight lasting three days or fewer.

Additionally, most of these shutdowns did not affect federal employees. In the event of a shutdown, employees can be placed on furlough, meaning they do not report to work or get paid. In 10 of the previous shutdowns, employees were not placed on furlough.

Sending employees home has become more frequent in recent shutdowns, with furlough occurring during each of the last four shutdowns and six of the last seven.

Unique to the possible shutdown on Friday is the fact that there has never been a shutdown during which employees were placed on furlough while one party controlled both chambers of Congress and White House.

Republicans can't force a bill through since Democrats can filibuster any funding bill in the Senate, but the shutdown would still be historic.

Here's a breakdown of all the previous shutdowns:

NOW WATCH: A reporter who met with the former spy behind the Trump-Russia dossier explains why it’s not 'fake news'


Trump administration is completely unprepared for a shutdown

The guy who would be nominally responsible for the government to continue to operate should a shutdown happen—Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney—is basically in the job part-time. He's spending his time on his other job, dismantling the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. So it's not much of a surprise that government agencies are completely in the dark about what happens at 12:01 Saturday morning if a deal isn't reached.

"I think the most frustrating aspect of this all is the total lack of communication from anyone in management," said a U.S. Department of Agriculture employee. […]

Of the dozens of federal employees HuffPost spoke with, many said that as of Friday morning, they had received no guidance from the leadership of their departments. Others had, but only very recently.

Mid-morning Friday, employees at the departments of Homeland Security, Interior, Commerce and State, among others, said they’d received notices telling them agency leaders were “working to update our contingency plans for executing an orderly shutdown of activities that would be affected by a lapse in appropriations.”

In other words, just 12 hours ahead of a potential shutdown, some federal agencies were still figuring out what they were going to do.

Every agency is supposed to have a plan, submitted to OMB and approved by it, for how to deal with a shutdown—which employees are essential and which should be furloughed, etc. But 66 out of nearly 130 agencies haven't submitted those contingency plans.

"I just cannot imagine working at an agency without an updated contingency plan, without the days and weeks we spent working through the worst case scenarios of funding and staffing," said Melanie Newman, who worked at the Department of House and Urban Development and OMB under Obama. "It can only result in chaos."

Police report that Las Vegas shooter had child pornography on his computer
Source:  TheBlaze
Friday, 19 January 2018 15:48

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo revealed a preliminary report Friday that  investigators found child pornography on the computer of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock.

Paddock’s attack from a Mandalay Bay hotel room left 58 concertgoers dead and hundreds more injured in the October mass shooting.

What about the child pornography?

According to an 81-page preliminary investigation report of the incident, several hundred photos depicting child pornography were discovered on a computer belonging to Paddock, which was located inside his hotel room.

A portion of the report, which Lombardo referred to during Friday’s news conference, said:

Computer forensic analysis of a Dell laptop Model E5570 revealed numerous internet searches for open air venues. Additionally, several hundred images of child pornography were located on the computer’s hard drive. The investigation into the source of these images is ongoing.

The computer also contained internet searches on “How tall is Mandalay Bay” and open-air venues such as Las Vegas’ Fremont Hotel & Casino, Gary Reese Freedom Park, and the Discovery Children’s Museum, which he searched twice.

Paddock isn’t the only member of his family who possessed child pornography — his brother Bruce was arrested for child pornography in October.

Is there more?

Lombardo revealed that law enforcement officials do not plan to seek charges against Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, but admitted that the FBI has an open investigation into an unnamed person of interest.

Las Vegas law enforcement officials on Tuesday also said that law enforcement is looking into new charges of additional suspects. Lombardo was adamant, however, that Paddock was the only shooter.

Friday’s news conference was the first that Lombardo and his department have held on the shooting since Oct. 13.

Where are all the sex toys for older adults?

It isn’t every day you see a sex toy on a billboard, and it’s even more rare you’ll see one in the hands of a person in their seventies.

But thanks to Grace and Frankie, the Netflix sitcom starring Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda, that’s exactly what people saw when the show’s third season premiered last year. The series, which centers around two friends who face many challenges while trying to create a vibrator for seniors, has brought to light an interesting real-life question: Where are all the sex toys for older people?

Last season followed the unlikely roommates as they conceptualized, prototyped, and focus-grouped the “Ménage à Moi.” It’s a vibrator made for and — perhaps more importantly — marketed to older women, particularly those who have a hard time using traditional models because of their arthritis.  Read more...
