Are you listening to his speech? We have no choice but to build a wall. If no funding, I will address this emergency
And the 9th circuit will shut him down.
He has played the national emergency card for 5 weeks. It’s just like his threat to declassify all those documents that are still secret. All talk. Nancy and Chuck won folks, deal with it. If you think Nan and Chuck are going to negotiate on the wall keep drinking the Kool-Aid. They won this time and they will win in 3 weeks, and 6 month and 2 years. It was a nice run, but no republic last forever. In 5 years you won’t even recognize this once great country. There is already a judge ready with a restraining order in hand against using a national emergency declaration to build the wall.
I’m not going to say Trump lied about the wall. I just don’t think, as an outsider he understood how unlikely it was he could deliver. The power in this country belong to the Left and their supporters in both parties, the media and schools. That is a hard coalition to defeat.
So it was an emergency but now it’s not but will be again in February?
If it’s an emergency it needs to be dealt with. Tough sell if he keeps kicking it down the road.
He gave them a 2 or 3 week deadline to fund border security or he will declare an Emergency and then it is off to the Courts we go. This way he can say that he exhausted all his options and Congress is ineffective and not acting on behalf of the American people. Kind of waters down the Dictator narrative which will happen anyway. He will get his SOTU speech to outline this problem in even greater detail by putting faces on the problem.
So it is off to the Courts. Anybody talk to John Roberts lately?
I heard to whole thing. Lots of “might; if; don’t want to;” etc.
Thank you. To our President, unlike many before him, words mean something. This gives him a breather to prepare everything for the national emergency speech.
And the Coast Guard will now get paid. I know his heart hurt for them not being paid.
