President Trump Reluctantly Signs Omnibus – MAGA Community Feels a Little “Less Great” Today…

There’s no escaping the reality that today’s Omnibus spending bill is a significant slap in the face to Trump voters and supporters. The $1.3 trillion UniParty spending scheme is a bitter rebuke from the legislative branch. A twitter comment outlines an understandable, albeit emotionally charged, reaction:

“You did have a choice. There’s always a choice. You betrayed us with what you did. We have fought for you. We have lost friends/family for you. We have become targets for you. Yes, you did have a choice. Fix this.”

Despite the valid and understandable reaction, ‘betrayal’ is harsh. From POTUS Trump perspective the lack of “choice” stems from a cornerstone that Making America Great Again is dependent on a strong U.S. military.  Protecting Americans writ large is contingent upon ensuring our military is solid. Unfortunately, the only way to ensure the #1 objective was to acquiesce/concede to the blackmail of the UniParty in DC.  –  FUBAR.

~ “Leadership is often painful” ~

There ain’t a single part of this that seems ok, regardless of necessity. Worse still, is having to accept the republican side of the UniParty would enjoy nothing more than losing their majority position so they can go back to being comfortable enablers of the unholy DC alliance, and expel the annoying disruption known as President Trump.

Yes, this self-preserving UniParty approach is by design; it is a feature of the swamp – not an anomaly. Our only current solace is a historic reference; generally speaking when President Trump retreats from a fight, he tends to re-advance his force with greater severity. But on this singular day, if there’s a larger push-back yet to unfold, the commander-in-chief is conceding to the opposition a great deal of valuable ground.

FUBAR….. Cue the Wolfmoon:

Again, Wolfmoon’s explainer more true today than it was a year ago:

“Well, I don’t really have to do any holding together, now that I figured out what Trump is up to. He is shaking things out, but counting on Trump gravity to pull things back together as he moves along.

He is moving “forward” at speeds Obama could not even dream of.

You and I will be anti-Trump trolls one day and MAGA heroes the next. Get used to it. Trump speed is the new normal. Some will call it flip-flopping, but that’s not what it is. Trump is dodging and weaving through reality faster than the reality can react to disrupt his plans.

I was explaining this to my wife. This is a roller-coaster now. Trump is no longer waiting for people to keep up. He is taking his bewildering art-of-the-deal campaign schtick into geopolitics, and for a lot of people who can’t keep up or hold on, it will be a rough ride.

Trump is no longer playing only with evil and cunning players who are still predictable, easily beatable dopes, like Hillary. He is playing against killers, with his own team of killers, and all the while he has scheming creeps like Hillary, BGI, SPLC, and the neocons gunning for him. Snake Ryan ready to bite when nobody is looking. “Warhead” McCain screaming for Russian blood. Psycho Kim and Samoa Obama plotting some kind of intrigue to take him down. And THOSE are the lightweights.

This is the majors now. Trump has to outwit world-class adversaries and “frenemies” by defining the deals that they will agree to. One minute they will think Trump is their friend – the next minute, a cunning, bitter foe.

And he has to do this with evil cheerleaders like Warhead, Linderace, Dipsy Dowd, Maggie Haterman, and Fake Yapper trashing him or praising him alternately, no matter which way he goes. They can’t keep up, either.

Neither can many around him. I think that half of the problem with advisers crashing into each other is they don’t realize what Trump is doing.

And people will trash you, and they will trash me. Get used to it. I’ve already caught plenty of people mocking me. Well, just wait a week in Trump time. Look stupid and conned by Trump one minute, and you look like a sage three days later.

Trump will not find perfect solutions. He will find OPTIMAL solutions. We cannot ask for more. Trump has stood by and watched Perfect murder Good for 8 years – maybe longer. He’s not gonna do it. He’s going to deliver the best outcome possible, and he’s not waiting for us to feel relaxed about it.

Best presidency ever! Just hang on. More winning is coming, but a lot of people are going to scream that it’s all over at EVERY turn.

The best way through this is to define viewpoints, not people, because people will shift as they change position and velocity in Trump gravity. Bash the neocon, warmonger, and dopey globalist positions – not the people who are going to hold them one moment and come loose from them later.

Trump is Jupiter moving through the asteroid belt. He is going to pull people into his orbit. A few will get slung off into space, but most will come along for the ride of their lives.

I am ON the Trump Train for good, even if I scream that I want off and can’t take it.

In the end, I only want to scream “TOO MUCH WINNING!!!” (link)

Today I pray for our nation. ♦I ask that you would give our President wisdom beyond his own understanding and the courage to chose the right path no matter how narrow the gate. ♦I pray for all in authority over us that you would give them the grace and strength to stand against the temptation to use power as a weapon but rather to carry it reverently as one would a child. ♦I pray for the spiritual leaders of our country that they would hear your voice and know your heart. ♦I pray that they would lead from their knees and by that simple grace bring each one of us to our knees before your throne. ♦Have mercy on our nation Lord, In Jesus name, Amen

    The more I look at this, the worse it gets. Huge increase in spending. check. Liberal priorities funded. check. Trillion dollar deficits and greater as far as the eye can see. check. H2-B visas DOUBLED. check. Whining about 800,000 DACAs he said he would kick out on day one. check. No money for a wall, only a picket fence. check. The Art of Capitulation. He has majorities in both houses and can’t get a wall built. Meanwhile illegals and visas keep pouring in, taking American jobs. No one is hunting down the law breaking employers. It’s a farce. Afghanistan is added to. We’re still in Syria. That psychopath Bolton made NSA. Coup plotters running free without any prosecution and bragging about it. What happened to “Lock her up?” This is not what I voted for.

    The way I’m seeing it, if the country is going to go down the ——-, like it is now, let the Democrats take it down. Trump’s barely prolonging the inevitable, I see no reason to vote for him, or to vote period. Burn it down this November and start over. Something good may rise out of the ashes. I’m done with the Republican Party.

      Was Trump Thrown Under the Omnibus?

      The Omnibus spending bill is NOT a budget, but the thing that obumer had all the 8 years…AND it has NO spending audits on it. He can spend it where he wants. He can spend it HOW he wants! hahaha…it is a disaster for the dems as they have just funded his wall!!! He can use the money how and where he desires. He can s-l-o-w down payments to those he does not want to get tax payer’s money…like the abortionists, planned P and others not on the nice list. Do you understand that is how obumer funneled away 8 trillion dollars over 8 years??? He NEVER had a budget, just these weird omnibus things, quasi budgets, but not a real budget with accountabilities, that’s why no one knew where the missing trillions went. Congress needs to be kicked out…period!

      The bill has no orders attached to it. He can spend it where and how he wants and it won’t be spent anywhere he does not approve…

      Jaque’s Page posted:

      I spent hours yesterday researching the laws, the 1974 law and statutes and providing links. Do you know why the Omnibus is not going to get any notice? Here it is…
      It’s not an official ‘Federal Budget’. It’s an Omnibus bill…not a Budget…He(Trump) outsmarted them again…Congress basically screwed themselves by not passing a Budget…
      Per the Constitution…the President must adhere to a Budget set forth by Congress and direct the expenditures as provided therein.
      This is another one of those big Porkulus Bills, like they gave Obama for 8 years. This is not a Budget!
      An Omnibus Spending Bill may have some ‘instructions’ as to how the money will be spent…but Obama ignored them. He spent the money, or didn’t spend it, however he wanted to. And Congress didn’t do a thing about it! Because they couldn’t.
      I think our President observed how this happened, year after year. He is bound to realize that those ‘appropriations’ for different things in these Omnibus bills…are merely ‘suggestions’.
      So like Obama, brilliant President Trump can spend this money on whatever he wants to. Or…not spend it.
      Planned Parenthood? What if our President decided to tell the Treasury Dept to ‘slow-walk’ that money to Planned Parenthood…until the Senate gets off their ass and confirms his appointees?
      Sanctuary Cities? What if our President decided to ‘slow-walk’ that money too…until those Sanctuary Cities assist ICE in rounding up criminal illegal aliens?
      Splodey heads? From the Dems/GOP to the Enemedia? Why yes, there would be a colorful display of splodey heads.
      But what could they do about it? …Hah.
      Our brilliant President could just say…’Wait! Congress should’ve passed a Budget.’
      Done finished…research was done…and it is so very humorous actually. Our VSG just said: Just give me money for the Military and the Wall…put anything else you want in it…and those goofballs did…lol
      In this case, as per above, he doesn’t have to spend a dime….because it is not a ‘budget’. And even if it was…researched….he could still spend as he pleased… Congress appropriates, but it’s up to the President to spend it…or not….as he pleases. Oh, I did see $30 million for Military Tribunals and the Holamn Rule…
      Again, that is why Obama never had a Budget in his Presidency…Congress did continual Omibus’s and he just took the money.

        I have started to see this thesis cropping up on the web, and I genuinely have a few initial questions.

        1) Who are Mary McClean and Jaques Page, and what authority and expertise do they really have to assert their claims? Said differently, are they really knowledgeable enough with Federal law beyond a web search to be able to legitimately argue that this thesis is really possible?

        2) Are there any other recognized legal experts, especially those from the political opposition, who are expressing concern or alarm over this?

        3) Can anyone explain why BOTH the Democrat and GOP leadership were not even remotely aware that this strategy was in play by President Trump? After all, the Democrats in particular had 8 years to refine and implement this strategy under Obama?

        4) If the Democrats – and the GOP leadership – are being outmaneuvered by President Trump, shouldn’t we very quickly expect them to verbalize their steadfast opposition as this strategy comes into a more public view? How will the swamp respond then?

        5) Assuming that this thesis is true and that President Trump is executing a strategy similar to Obama, it still doesn’t clarify the legality of such a strategy. Obama’s approach to omnibus spending packages worked because the Congress was fully compliant: the Democrats supported it while the Republicans had neither the will nor the courage to stop it. So, what exactly would change if Congress did assert itself under President Trump?

        6) Can Federal Courts be brought to bear to confound this strategy, either by enforcing where monies must be spent or by preventing the President from exercising his discretion? This matters, as this spending is only supposed to last for 6 months.

        Can anyone do anything more than speculate on this topic? Real information is needed, not cheer leading or gratuitous swipes against Trump voters who are not at all happy with this disgrace.

          1. One thing many are missing.
          This Omnibus pork barrel has a shelf life of 6 months. Renewal ? End of September.

          Just before the mid-terms.

          2. Trump & Mattis have secured the $700 bn for the military. That is locked in, a fantastic outcome for #MAGA.

          But all other spending is up for review & can be cut in late September.

        Above came from article below:

        Article summary:
        “In a nutshell, since Trump signed the State of Emergency regarding human trafficking back in December, he has the power as President to reallocate funds in a spending bill in support of conditions of that State of Emergency.

        Moreover, since this is not a budget but a spending bill he is under no direct compunction as President to spend the money allocated by Congress the way Congress has allocated it.

        Because of this State of Emergency he can then tie the building of the Border Wall to it through the rubric of “National Defense” and reallocate funds for the Department of Defense to build the wall.

        This State of Emergency supersedes the language in the bill about Border Wall funding.

        At the same time he can choose not to spend money on obvious pork and political footballs like Planned Parenthood and return that money to the U.S. Treasury.”

          Speaking of armies, I believe President Trump was between a rock and a hard place as regards Congresses’ Spending Bill. Our military deliberately and systematically weakened for eight years by Barack Obama, As a result the military is in terrible shape. But President Trump could not say this as it would be suicide insofar as strategy to do so. But he knew how much the military needs the money in the Spending Bill if it is to rebuild. And so, being the genuine American patriot that he is, President Trump signed the Bill. And is now taking the heat for doing so from conservatives who really ought to know better. The truth is that Donald J. Trump is one of the few people in Washington who puts America ahead of himself. God Bless President Trump.

The Palestian terrorists have been cut off from funds. The UN funding will have to be OKed by Pompeo who got all the global dirt while at the CIA. There’s alot more including the ability to nuke the Shadow Government/SES. The American Intelligence Media has some excellent You Tubes. As to the things people don’t like POTUS can either not release funds or slow walk their release. Swamp Conservatives trying to inflame your emotions haven’t read the Omnibus and don’t have the intelligence to understand it even if they had. Their sole job is to keep the Swamp in power and remove Trump. They do that by having their Democrat team mates win in November. Please don’t fall for such obvious trickery when we’ve won so much by trusting God and backing the man who has proven how much he loves us and America. Since he signed the Omnibus bill I know it was the best move. Period.

        It’s not that I have given up on President Trump. I only feel that way about venal and self-serving cowards in Congress irrespective of their party.

        What I cannot accept is the President’s tacit acquiescence to our border security – no funding to actually build a wall, no ICE hires, no e-verify, constraints on the capture and release of illegal immigrants, and no restrictions or loss of funding for sanctuary cities. That is now law! Where was the understanding that time is not on our side, as the uni-party opposition is seeking to import a whole new and compliant electorate to replace us; congress has made it all too clear that it doesn’t care at all about the nation’s sovereignty and is all to happy to continue to spend enormous amounts of hard-earned or borrowed taxpayers’ money to bring in warm bodies from the third world. And how successful will we be in containing the opioid epidemic if the supply continues unabated across a completely unsecured border? For crying out loud, there was money for border walls in Jordan,Lebanon and Tunisia! President Trump had leverage, just like he did several weeks ago when he made the Democrats pay a price over DACA during the last impasse. He could have vetoed the bill, and told Congress to do better. He should have done it to keep his agenda alive. Reagan did it, so Trump could have too!

        As a final note, perhaps everyone here should consider that President Trump may have just ended his Presidency because people like me will now not do anything to support the GOP in the upcoming midterms. How motivated do you think people are going to continue to be to re-elect a GOP that can’t or won’t keep any promises to an electorate that is weary of their excuses. Me thinks that the GOP-controlled congress should have given more of a damn about the American people and less about the Democrats. Perhaps then they might have discovered a spine.

          If you noticed, yesterday Trump emphasized that he signed it because the military needs the funding. He said it’s all about national security! What some people don’t get is that he can authorize the “wall” that congress now thinks he’s not allowed to build. And build it, he can build it with the way more money for national defense than he asked for. They almost doubled it! They were baiting him to sign it and snickering their behinds off thinking that they got him! They also improved the money for Homeland security, more than was asked for. All he has to do now is give an EO for the army for of engineers to build the stinking wall! He also emphasized that the wall IS all about national security.
          So he takes one on the chin for now, gets his wall and builds the military. In six months this omnibus bill will expire, it will be close to the midterms and the Rinos will get their a$$es handed to them with replacements. And the Dems will lose seats. They have nothing to run with. All they did with this bull was keep the people happy that are financing their campaigns and the hard left wing of their party. Trump is good! Not God, but sent by God to save our great nation!

            Thank you for your reply.

            Yes, I noticed the things you mentioned But let me reply using my post to another individual above:

            “I have started to see this thesis [that the military will fund and build a wall because the President can spend omnibus monies at his discretion] cropping up on the web, and I genuinely have a few initial questions.

            1) Who are Mary McClean and Jaques Page [posters identified elsewhere on this thread], and what authority and expertise do they really have to assert their claims [that unlike a budget, an omnibus spending bill allows the President full discretion as to how to spend appropriated funds]? Said differently, are they really knowledgeable enough with Federal law beyond a web search to be able to legitimately argue that this thesis is really possible?

            2) Are there any other recognized legal experts, especially those from the political opposition, who are expressing concern or alarm over this?

            3) Can anyone explain why BOTH the Democrat and GOP leadership were not even remotely aware that this strategy was in play by President Trump? After all, the Democrats in particular had 8 years to refine and implement this strategy under Obama?

            4) If the Democrats – and the GOP leadership – are being outmaneuvered by President Trump, shouldn’t we very quickly expect them to verbalize their steadfast opposition as this strategy comes into a more public view? How will the swamp respond then?

            5) Assuming that this thesis is true and that President Trump is executing a strategy similar to Obama, it still doesn’t clarify the legality of such a strategy. Obama’s approach to omnibus spending packages worked because the Congress was fully compliant: the Democrats supported it while the Republicans had neither the will nor the courage to stop it. So, what exactly would change if Congress did assert itself under President Trump?

            6) Can Federal Courts be brought to bear to confound this strategy, either by enforcing where monies must be spent or by preventing the President from exercising his discretion? This matters, as this spending is only supposed to last for 6 months.

            Can anyone do anything more than speculate on this topic? Real information is needed, not cheer leading or gratuitous swipes against Trump voters who are not at all happy with this disgrace.”

Instead he will give that money to the Army Corp of Engineers to build a Concrete WALL on the Southern Border . This is a National Defense issue

          Oddly enough, one way to punish Mitch McConnell might well be to reelect a GOP Senate majority. I’ve suspected for years that Mitch, at heart, aspires to be minority leader of a nice fat minority. That way, he doesn’t have to take positions on issues he doesn’t care about, he can pretend to criticize from the sidelines the way he did against Obama for years, he can continue to advocate for business interests easily in that position, etc.

          So it’s a peculiarity of our time that voting Republican might actually bother Mitch more than staying home.

With all the organizations, ‘impeach Trump’ obstructionists, RHINOs, the corrupt media, the Soros and other billions against him, the media manipulating people into an anti-Trump frenzy – that he has got ANYthing done is a miracle. He could be having a pretty great life with his young son and beautiful wife right now, but instead he has to try not to get assassinated. What has it cost me (and my husband) to support Trump? My family. My husband’s family. All but one of my old friends. I feel sad about it, but not sorry for myself. And, Kaco, I feel a bit ticked off at you.

        That is the problem we expect Trump to do it all, but we send people like McCain, Ryan, McConnell, Corker, and all those so called moderate Republicans who voted for this disaster to back Trump.While I praise the Freedom caucus for not backing the bill; they were a thorn in the side along with Paul Ryan in the Obamacare debacle; the Republicans are too beholden to the COC and so called conservative values that seem to vary which ever way the breeze is blowing to be bothered backing their own President because they wanted Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz who both would have lost to Hillary and the Republicans could have continued playing the Opposition party card and hold symbolic votes. They really do not want to govern.
        Ask yourself what was Trump suppose to do? If he vetoed the bill it would have surely been overridden, and this would have embolden his enemies to talk up impeachment.
        Trump did the next best thing; he got the money for the army and the IG; he is moving forward with sanctions against China; he is keeping his promise to bring back jobs to Americans; he also exposed who the swamp dwellers are in the House and Senate, Republicans should primary these guys and send them down in defeat and voters need to turn out full force against the Dems to reduce their power to next to nothing.
        Trump can not do it alone; so do not lose faith in Trump, but at the same time when the primaries and elections come vote him in the Army he needs to keep doing MAGA
        By the way all of those who talk about Trump and Reagan:
        http://www.newsweek.com/reagan-immigration-reform-and-control-act-1986-641806
        Reagan signed the first disastrous Amnesty bill and he did not face as hostile a congress when he proposed tax reform:

It is the only party left. The Demonrat Party is Marxist on the surface, corrupt as hell below. The GOP isn’t much better, but it still has some patriots.

      I believe the whole purpose of this bill was to piss people off so they will not vote in November. Don’t play by their rules. Stay in the GOP and vote in the primaries. The country need 25/7/365 assault on these traitors. WE are at the point where they can’t block all media, try as they may. The battle is to take down the Uniparty and that won’t happen staying home, or voting for a Demoncrats.

      Look, I HATE that Trump signed this bill because I know it funded abortion. I know Trump hated it too.

      Now this is the 24th and I had to put myself in Trump’s shoes.

      He took an OATH to God that he would protect this country. And he had to WEIGH in the balances what was put before him.

      Our military has been decimated. The Middle East is getting ready to go to war. And then there’s NK, Russia and China.

      The bottom line is, that God will judge this country because it is evil. The Stench of it rises to heaven every day. The abortion, the occult, the usury, the judicial murders, the bribery, the brainwashing of our children to inculcate them into the New World Religions…all of it.

      That didn’t go away just because Trump got elected. A lot of people might wish to not think about it but it hasn’t gone away.

      We’ve been given a REPRIEVE from the NWO Globalists. Don’t you understand that? A REPRIEVE!

      Unless this nation repents, and I find it highly unlikely although I’ve been praying for years, this NWO isn’t going to go away. There is a point of no return. Obama was meant to be a chastisement. How many people repented under that scourge???

      You said, “I have fought the globalists plans for 27 years, and time is up!!! No patience left here…”

      I’ve been fighting since the 1980’s and I’ve had my life threatened many a time. I’ve been been beaten, shot at, stalked, threatened, drugged and raped, hacked, had my home damaged, even had groups come against me simply for being a Christian that speaks out and prays. I won’t even go into the two husbands I lost because they turned away from the Lord. One is dead the other was unfaithful and demanded a divorce. Lost on the front lines of this fight against evil.

      Unfortunately, the one that is dead, saw the REAL enemy for what it is, realized that we were hurtling to the End Times, became afraid and quit trusting in God. He turned to those in the occult and it killed him.

      I’ve been struck down, but not out! God upholds me when the count is down. When I can’t do it anymore, He does it for me.

      Let us know when things get as bad as what Jeremiah went through. Because what is coming isn’t for the faint of heart.

Sadly, this all really affects our children and grandchildren much more than us. For me, I’m toast in about 30 years time anyway. I’m getting to the point where I’m just tired of the fight. Our direction and velocity hasn’t changed a whip in the 55 years I have been alive. Since the time I was able to comprehend, I have watched this train rolling along right down the very same tracks, and as you say, some days at 75mph, some days at 250mph, but the same track nonetheless. I am of the realization that our destiny as a nation is within the political cycle of all societies. We will in fact become a tyrannical nation for a 100 years or so, then people will rise and liberate, and the cycle will all start again. This same movie has played out for thousands of years all across the globe through every society. I don’t see America breaking that long standing mold. It is quite amazing we have made it this far, perhaps further than any society before us.

        Respectfully, I will argue that time is a luxury we no longer have.

        As I posted elsewhere, I do not place the majority of the blame on the President. Indeed, I am of the opinion that McConnell and the Senate are mostly culpable for this travesty. Nevertheless, it cannot be ignored that there will not be any activity on the most important agenda item that propelled President Trump to the White House: illegal immigration and uncontrolled borders. Plainly speaking, this LAW forbids any work to build a physical barrier, circumscribes how ICE may detain illegal aliens, does not fund any additional agents, does not authorize or fund any e-verify system and fully funds sanctuary cities. Let’s be blunt: we are being replaced both as a work force AND an electorate. The margins were barely big enough in the rust belt states to overcome fraud. It now only becomes a very short period of time before it doesn’t matter at all!

        The President should have done more to point this out and justify a veto. After all, it’s clear that Congress no longer cares about our sovereignty. There are not enough patriots in that body to make a difference now, and I have no confidence that they will collectively find the courage and virtue to act differently until after it is too late, if for no other reason they don’t care!

          If Trump or the Republicans were serious about illegal immigration, they would pass E-Verify. E-Verify would eliminate the jobs and take away the incentives for illegals to come here. Trump knows it. Republicans know it. It’s clear now that Trump played us on immigration, and most Republicans in Congress represent lawbreaking employers and don’t care. (The Perdue/Goodlatte DACA plan included E-Verify and had some Republican support, but the leadership and Trump didn’t push it and it went nowhere.)

          Trump imo has never made an honest effort to get the wall or stop illegal immigration. He supports visas. According to reports, he uses 70 visa workers at Mar-a-Lago. That directly contradicts his posturing of “hire American buy American.” He has taken a few high-profile positions on sanctuary cities and ICE raids that are purely symbolic for political purposes but have little effect in terms of numbers on the main problem of illegal immigration.

          Like you I voted for Trump primarily for his stand against illegal immigration and for several other reasons. I don’t get emotionally attached to politicians as many seem to. They have to do what they promise, or they’re of no use to me. I view Trump the way he views his women: once they’ve lost their usefulness, he throws them overboard. That’s how I feel about Trump after this weekend and his failure to keep his major promise.

      This Omnibus pork barrel has a shelf life of 6 months. Renewal ? End of September.
      Just before the mid-terms.
      he’s trying to convince more voters on the other side that he will negotiate in good faith and the they have a better chance if they support him…it is about garnering votes to win the next election in 2020. he must keep congress and also solidify the true loyal party members that will support his agenda. trump was not a politician when he began, but he is learning quickly, albeit in fits and starts. he is not an obama trojan horse, he is the same today as he was on election day. in only 4 months this will again come into focus and that will be in july, when the election is only months away. it is at that time mr trump will name every stinking congressperson that voted for this bloated bill and wouldn’t help him with his agenda…it’s about holding congress and defeating the rino’s at the same time. look ahead…

    I can relate to some of what you are saying digleigh, but you have to admit that things are changing at a very rapid rate. The statements about the filibuster rule, line item veto, and I’m NEVER signing another one of these o-my-bur-ti-swamp bills again – seem to be a direct warning to the house and senate. When I think of what happened yesterday, and compare it to what could have happened if we had Hillary there. Life is made up of choices, and I’m really really glad I picked Trump.

    Many years ago I got a bit political and went to DC several times to try and make changes. Several trips and I did not make a nickles worth of difference. You can visit the offices and scream and holler at them as long as you like, and when it’s over they simply say “Next Please” and show you to the door. They have a skill at being polite and letting you scream all you want. DC is a nice place to visit our memorials, but a very tough place to make anything happen. I think you’d agree with me, Trump is making changes and he is the only president in my lifetime that actually has listened to the people and not lobbyist and special interest groups. Cut him some slack, he’s the ONLY man with the guts to do exactly what he said he would, and he’s OUR president. The country gave Obama 8 years, and how did that work out for us?

    I’ve come to the conclusion, I cannot make the changes I want, but I KNOW who can — for the future of my kids, grandkids & great-grandkids. I hope you’ll give Trump a longer time to prove you right.

    The Constitution grants primacy to congress when it comes to allocating money. Even if Trump vetoed their latest monstrosity, congress could override him. I have know doubt that 2/3rds of the senate would vote to do so, the house would have been a tougher road, but who knows.
    Fortunately for us, the Constitution granted primacy to controlling the military to POTUS when they made him commander in chief. Until congress gives him the money to build The Wall, President Trump should order the national guard deployed to the southern border to secure it. Let’s see which option the DC establishment prefers.

    Trump Wins Again with Omnibus:
    From Jim Stone:

    TRUMP MAY HAVE BEEN A GENIUS, HERE’S POSSIBLE 3D CHESS
    The following was posted to a popular forum:
    FOR THOSE DOUBTING TRUMP DO YOUR RESEARCH!
    Research the laws, the 1974 law and statutes.

    It’s not an official ‘Federal Budget’. It’s an Omnibus bill…not a Budget…He outsmarted them again…Congress basically screwed themselves by not passing a Budget…
    Per the Constitution…the President must adhere to a Budget set forth by Congress and direct the expenditures as provided therein.

    This is another one of those big Porkulus Bills, like they gave Obama for 8 years. This is not a Budget.

    An Omnibus Spending Bill may have some ‘instructions’ as to how the money will be spent…but Obama ignored them. He spent the money, or didn’t spend it, however he wanted to. And Congress didn’t do a thing about it! Because they couldn’t.

    I think our President observed how this happened, year after year. He is bound to realize that those ‘appropriations’ for different things in these Omnibus bills are merely ‘suggestions’.

    So like Obama, Pres Trump can spend this money on whatever he wants to. Or not spend it.
    Planned Parenthood? What if our President decided to tell the Treas Dept to ‘slow-walk’ that money to Planned Parenthood until the Senate gets off their ass and confirms his appointees?
    Sanctuary Cities? What if our President decided to ‘slow-walk’ that money too…until those Sanctuary Cities assist ICE in rounding up criminal illegal aliens?

    Splodey heads? From the Dems and the Enemedia? Why yes. There would be a colorful display of splodey heads.

    But what could they do about it. Hah.

    Our President could just say ‘What! Congress should’ve passed a Budget.’

    Again, that is why Obama never had a Budget in his Presidency, Congress did continual Omibus’s and he just took the money . . . for 8 years . . . and no one seems to know where it went.

    Addendum: I’m not taking credit for this, someone sent it to me and I’m sharing it with you. I don’t know ‘who’ actually deserves the credit for putting it together.

    My comment: Well, that’s interesting.

      With all the discussion about the possibility of PDJT using funds appropriated for the military, and perhaps even other places for the wall, I decided to go back and reread the speech he made when he signed the omnibus bill. Now that I’ve done that, I can’t help but notice that for something that got comparatively very little funding, he spent quite a lot of time talking about building the wall.

      While he also spent a considerable amount of time discussing the military and defense in general, he seemed to stress the connection between those two areas and securing the border by building the wall. He did the same with DACA and immigration; even though, he didn’t talk as much about either of those topics. In fact, almost everything he brought up, he tied to the need to build the wall.

      All that has me very optimistic that he really might use as much funding from the omnibus bill as needed to COMPLETE the wall.

    So much “PDJT just killed his reelection, Ryan and McConnell have given midterms to the Dims etc. etc.”

    Folks, there is more to this than meets the eye. PDJT signed the Omniblowout bill which funds the executive, with Congressional oversight (i.e., make sure the funds are spent legally). PDJT can spend the funds how he wishes as long as it is legal. Hence the Trump play here, highlights from the following thread:

    3. Once the President is given the money with the instructions to spend it, he has a number of choices to make in spending it. There are some rules he has to follow & some of the money is fungible and some isn’t.

    4. However there are some other factors that are in play here. One of them is that the President has declared a Human Rights Emergency AND has notified Congress that he’s invoking the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.

    5. This opens up new options.

    6. By making these two declarations President Trump has just communicated that he has the authority to NOT spend any funds he doesn’t deem necessary and will return them to the US Treasury. So, funds for Planned Parenthood? He can simply not allocate the funds.

    7. Also, these declarations make some funds fungible. For instance if he determines that building a Wall on the Southern Border is a defense against Human Trafficking? He can move funds from anywhere else in the Defense Dept Allocation & simply build the Wall.

    And hear is the thread:

    https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/977677766668636160.html

    Anyone want to bet on how much of the funds are returned to the Treasury in Sept 2018?
    $300 billion? $400 Billion? more? I say over $300 Billion as that brings the spending under the “magical” $1 Trillion mark.

    Happy spending, and believe in PDJT. I do.

    The CLOUD Act was attached to this Cromnibus bill. This is not good. imo

    The CLOUD Act “gives a great deal of leeway to the executive branch when it comes to determining which countries are allowed to subpeona U.S. tech companies, removing a judicial review.”
    This included U.S. persons.

    The CLOUD Act gives “…law enforcement organizations — both foreign and domestic — (the ability to) obtain the personal data of users on U.S.-based tech services. The idea is to encourage countries to sign mutual legal assistance treaties with the U.S. that set out rules for how such requests are processed, and clarifies that data belonging to U.S. citizens is subject to a lawful warrant even if it is stored overseas”
    You know where this is going, doncha?

    “The CLOUD Act creates both the incentive and the framework for governments to sit down and negotiate modern bi-lateral agreements that will define how law enforcement agencies can access data across borders to investigate crimes,” Microsoft President and Chief Legal Officer Brad Smith said in a blog post https://blogs.microsoft.com/on-the-issues/2018/02/27/a-problem-congress-should-solve/
    Bi-lateral? How about CPTPP?

    The CLOUD ACT “allows the executive branch of the U.S. government way too much power to decide which countries it will share information with…There is language in the bill that says the executive branch can only negotiate treaties with countries that adhere to human rights agreements, or demonstrate respect for due process when it comes to seeking information on their citizens, but there is no specific definition or remedy for how to determine if a country’s laws really offer things like “protection from arbitrary and unlawful interference with privacy”
    Whose definition of human rights, exactly?

    “(T)his bill exposes individuals to abuse by law-enforcement agencies and also puts an undue burden on smaller tech companies to respond directly to requests from foreign governments”

    Can anyone say monopoly? No more etrepreneurs? Who needs Net Neutrality? We own CONgress.

    Even bypasses the FISA process. What joy for the DOJ/FBI small group.
    We are back to the Patriot ACT Section 215, on steroids.

    Now imagine Crooked H or (Lord help us) another Obama as POTUS.

    NOTHING ANYONE can, has, or will say here can EXCUSE in ANY way Trump’s signing the Omnibus Bill. Paint it anyway you will, it f*cking s*cks and was a f*cking slap in the f*cking face to everyone who got spit on, slapped, pushed, beat, chased, ridiculed, booed, threatened, targeted, and ostracized for going to Trump rallies.

    As far as I GAF, Trump sold gun owners out to their mortal enemies, e.g. Schumer, Feinstein, et al. The Fix NICS bill allows a court to declare you a “fugitive from justice” for failing to respond to a traffic ticket, or failing to pay one. Fix NICS then REQUIRES the court to report you to the NICS gun ban list. And just like THAT, you’re a prohibited person.

    NO. NO. AND F*CKING NO AGAIN. Trump HAD a choice. Sundance, you’re the greatest but even you can’t turn this Judas betrayal by Trump into a walk on water miracle. EVERY gun owner in the country has just been stabbed in the back by the very guy THEY GOT ELECTED.

    NO. Trump sucks in this. He HAD A CHOICE. He REFUSED to TAKE IT.

    NO FURTHER DISCUSSION IS NEEDED.
