Trump has democrats in a corner. Bigly

You have to hand it to him. He thinks long term. Chess, not checkers.

Trump has democrats in a major pickle. It was a major league set up.

Chief Justice John Roberts has been a disappointment to say the east. You will remember that Roberts went out of his way to help pass obamacare. He suggested that it be called a tax instead of a mandate. Trump decided to use that as a tool. He attempted by Executive Order to remove DACA, which was instituted not by Congress, but by Executive Order. SCOTUS refused to allow an EO by one President to be vacated by a successor President.

You will also remember that DACA was magically created and funded by EO. DACA stands despite being unconstitutional in nature.

The precedent was set.

Negotiations to continue Wuhan virus relief have been fruitless as democrats have been demanding all sorts of unrelated expenses, such as reparations, be added.

Trump warned them he would act via Executive Action and Saturday he did just that.

President Trump signed four executive actions Saturday aimed at delivering relief to Americans struggling with the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic while accusing Democrats of stonewalling greater aid efforts.

Trump announced a $400-per-week supplemental unemployment payment to out-of-work Americans — short of the $600 weekly benefit that expired at the end of July. He unveiled an extension of student loan relief and protections from evictions for renters and homeowners. Trump also issued a payroll tax holiday through the end of the year for Americans earning less than $100,000, while promising more relief if he wins a second term.

This is where the fun begins.

democrats played their usual stall game. This time it failed. Chris Wallace, the frequently disappointing left winger on Fox, put it to Pelosi

“Won’t millions of Americans now get some extended federal unemployment relief and some protections for evictions—get that now rather than nothing at all?”
And then really got under her skin
“Didn’t you mess this one up?”
She was taken aback
“Clearly, you don’t have an understanding of what is happening here,”
Trump did the right thing for the country. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin warned democrats about challenging the EO:
“We’ve cleared with the Office of Legal Counsel all these actions,” Mnuchin told Wallace. “If the Democrats want to challenge us in court and hold up unemployment benefits to those hardworking Americans that are out of a job because of COVID, they’re going to have a lot of explaining to do.”
dems have signaled that they intend to challenge Trump’s EO.

This is a no lose situation for Trump.

We are going to electorally destroy the left this November, and despite limp wristed complicit demoGOPe we will take back both the house and the senate.

Then the wrath begins.

Maybe. Much depends on how massive voter fraud is.

I hope President Trump already has some great people already working quietly to uncover and stop the voter fraud that the dems already have planned...

Three-dimension chess, with a bit of legerdemain and industrial level light and magic thrown in.

‘Tis beautiful to witness a real showman work his charm upon the audience.

But watch out for the exploding heads in your near vicinity. Not that it is dangerous (as there was very little of any importance in them anyway), but the mess can be terrible to clean off your clothes.

They just lost the ability to fund it when they failed to negotiate with President Trump. That money was how the ruined democrats states were going to get bailed out to finance this. China may help, but they are being unmasked as well. Be of good faith, your concerns are valid and reasonable, but we are still going to destroy the left. The die is already cast. President Trump has his campaigner knocking on millions of doors each week. In the process they are also POLLING. President Trump knows he is going to win in November and there is nothing the left can do to stop it.

Have an AWESOME DAY!

DICTATOR Nancy Pelosi is fuming. She has lost a game of chicken with Donald Trump on helping folks by blocking help for Americans over issuses such as helping ILLEGAL ALIENS.

Bad news for people in cities with Democratic Mayors as well as states with Democratic Governors. Examples:

Minneapolis
Chicago

I know that Roberts has impressive credentials, but I think he's just plain stupid.

I've seen this before.

Such people are no match for a towering intellect like Trump's.

Unlike Obama, who struts over the chess board like a pigeon knocking down the pieces, then poops all over the board.

If Trump has the Democrats backed into a corner then why was Mnuchin out there today saying they were willing to add money to the final package? When their position on Friday was not a dime more?

The term Trump uses is “big league”, a common saying among New Yorkers. He does not say “bigly”. The “Bigly” reference came from a leftist news hack with too much wax in his ears.

Easy. Cuz he and Trump both know that no matter what they “add” Botoxic won’t give in and give Trump another victory.

He has them. No matter which way they turn.

That will depend on where they wind up, won't it?

Of course he does.

Thank you!!

I gave up trying to explain that whole “Bigly” vs. “Big League“ misunderstanding years ago...

Some here seem to think “Bigly” is some sort of quaint NY colloquialism - it just sounds illiterate to me - and attributing it to President Trump only feeds into anti-Trump fake-news narratives that he is some sort of clown or buffoon.
