President* Trump

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

There are differences of (compentent) opinion as to whether he can make up an emergency - apparently it's never been done, no surprise there. He can "call" an emergency, and he can move around some of the military money, but IMNVHO the "emergency" won't survive court. I think it will be like the rulings on the original Muslim ban - that the President* could restrict travel, but not for the ridiculous racist reasons he had. I think he'll have to produce some believable evidence of actual "emergency" - of which of course there is zipnadazilch.

Beyond that, between the eminent domain fights, state and local government challenges, etc. Etc. It'll be years before any meaningful barrier could be erected, further eroding the emergency factor.

Kinda sick of the talking heads taking this seriously. Can't they just call it what it is, Numbnuts is just trying to fulfill a campaign promise, Congress (Dems and Pubs) won't let him and he's gonna cry about it till 2020. End of story.

An observation:
The overwhelming support from the pubs in Congress, governors along the border states and local government in the affected areas is kind of deafening.

Who's with Ol' Yellowstain (and his Whitehouse minions) besides the Faux News talking heads, Limbaugh and Coulter?

:-|| Absolutely! Every time one of the news people reports his lying stunts as if he wasn't total nuts, it tends to normalize him and make his ummmm, "message" more believable at least to the gullible. And make no mistake, there are a lot of gullibles around.

Thump knew all along that Mexico would never put a dime towards building a wall. He spoke what rednecks and rabidly feverish numbnuts wanted to hear. Now he's got to save face, when he ought to worry about saving his ass.
I wish he had a wall, Peloosi, Schimmer, Soreass, Putin, and collusion stuck where the sun don't shine.
I wouldn't give 2 cents for a Democrat or Republican. Screw 'em all.

Stilted, stiff and painful (I think the Sanders woman was hiding under the desk poking him with a cattle prod to get him through it), crocodile tears that convince no one but his 35%.

Yeah, he was obviously sticking to the written script and you're probably right that Sanders was wielding a nice 440V Bull Buster all the while. I am still surprised that he didn't declare a state of emergency.....I was nearly sure he would. I think what needs to happen now is trump needs to chase Ted Cruz around the White House lawns until he can tackle him and start munching on his face. Ted has been courting a new look since his GOP convention speech.

I am disturbed by the image of Sanders hiding under a desk and doing anything, especially when it involves "stiff and painful".

POSPOTUS was either lying to wind up his adoring bigot Trumpettes when he dangled the idea of declaring a national emergency, or the lifelong cowardly Chickenhawk in Chief caved in to opposition.

Fact Check: Trump's prime-time speech on the government shutdown

Donald Trump's Border Speech Gets A Savage Instant Fact-Check On Fox News

Seems that all he did is look bad, lie, get caught, make no new proposals and suggest nothing that would help end the impasse. Why?

Surprising no one at all since he thinks he needs some sort of (perceived) victory to keep a campaign promise and wants to run on this in 2020, Old Yellowstain is gonna declare a "national emergency", then proceed to the ultimate FU to people that need help the most.

Border wall funds could be diverted from a pool meant for Puerto Rico, Texas and other areas hit by disasters

One thing that argues against the notion that Dolt .45 is directly working for Russia is that the Russians prefer it if their agents and employees are more stable and competent.

Talking head stole the phrase...
BORN WITH A SILVER FOOT IN HIS MOUTH -- State Treasurer Ann Richards of Texas in a keynote address to the Democratic National Convention in 1988 humorously changed the proverb (born with a silver spoon in one's mouth) by suggesting that George Bush was 'born with a silver foot in his mouth.'.
