Sunday Talks: Mick Mulvaney -vs- Chris Wallace

OMB Director and incoming White House Chief-of-Staff Mick Mulvaney appears on Fox News Sunday to debate the insufferable gatekeeper for the swamp, Chris Wallace.  Topics include: border security and the government non-shutdown; exiting Defense Secretary James Mattis and the end of U.S. combat presence in Syria; and the economy.

    So it’s no longer a big beautiful wall and it’s no longer now 10 feet higher. It’s a steel salt fence with pointy tops. And we’ve moved down from $5 billion to a lower number.

    Disappointing.

    I’m not disappointed in Trump, he seems to do all he can and more than any President in my memory. Disappointed in where we are as a country.

        Go fund me by triple-amputee Brian Kolfage. WeFundTheWall.com is his go fund me page. In 6 days, he’s over $16M and 100% goes to build the wall. If he doesn’t raise the $1B, he will return donations.

        • MostlyRight says:

          He’s 1.6% of the way there and donations are slowing. A good symbol but a drop in the bucket. Even if he hit a billion it would be about 4% of the cost of a complete barrier. We need Congress to fully fund, and that’s just a part of the immigration reform needed.

            I made a donation when I first read about it on American Thinker, thanks to Clarice Feldman. Now, if all readers who support the wall and who read AT and TCH would dig deep and donate $100.00 each, it might pick up momentum.

            We sit and do nothing, it will be like the newly elected House of Representatives. We lose and now we have to put up with Dem crap.

      Mostly…if you watch any of the hour or so briefing from a couple of summers ago about the type of wall that Israel uses, that is most effective, and that Trump seemed to favor, the diagram shown in that briefing has three parts: a bollard-type (steel? I can’t remember the material) wall as the first/front part of the “wall”, THEN there is a paved/cement area wide enough for a (patrol) vehicle to drive upon, THEN there is second/back part of the “wall” that is the 30-foot cement wall. I will look for the diagram and post the link or the diagram itself. SO–the way that I have been listening to the statements made by Trump is HOPEFUL in that he is not *settling* for the steel bollard wall, but that he is *beginning* the construction of what actually and eventuallt be the entire structure that was described as the most effective in that briefing in 2017.

      I trust this man and remain patient and hopeful. Be back with the diagram…

        This is the YouTube link to the 24-minute briefing:

        Couldn’t get the diagram, but at 10:33 in the video, there’s a fullframe look at it. I may have had the description backwards, but for sure, the bollard steel part of the wall is just a part of it. Anyway, the briefing is very informative and something to work towards–for what it is worth during this Congress!

      So few recognize how to be a Cabinet member; a Staff member. Mattis was a good general, but ultimately did not know how best to serve at the highest level.

      This is all about the President, period. His platform, his judgement, his vision, his leadership were what America elected to lead them as Chief Executive. None of these others, the Cabinet and their bureaucrats, matter except to the extent they serve their boss and thus “the People”.

      A good Cabinet member will facilitate greatness in their President. Mick Mulvaney is obviously (to me) going to be a great one. This fellow has a lot going in upstairs and a moral compass to guide all that energy.

      Mulvaney has been cleaning up the agency that was formed with the consent of Elizabeth Warren. It was essentially a slush fund for the Dems to do anything they wanted to do and of course supported by the great community agitator in chief, Obama. If you will recall, it was not pretty when Mulvaney fired the chief and he took her seat.

    As SD has made clear, the swamp is deep and powerful….and it is a Uniparty swamp. Perhaps the solution is simple (in concept); a new party. Form a new party, as Perot did, but recruit candidates for all offices in Congress. Not easy at all, but how else can we really move beyond the control of the Uniparty? Perot did get 19% of the vote, and his campaign was not the best-organized campaign!

      That’s been thought of many times over and really isn’t feasible. It’s much easier and faster to vote out the existing UniParty members in the GOP and replace them with good candidates. However, at the rate that’s being done it will never succeed. American voters are not involved enough and the work to get good candidates to primary incumbents is way to slow. For example, we should already be planning the rollout of new conservative candidates for the 2020 congressional elections during the first quarter of 2019, but you can bet that very few people have even thought about it yet.

        We will have a List Of Essentials as developed by us the people and Donald Trump. If incumbents want to support the List, well they might get our votes. The challengers will tell the voters, “I’m with Them, the People and President Trump. Vote for me and I’ll vote with Them!”

          – – – – – –
          Pardon the relative absence of timeliness – and arguably, OT thread drift – of this post; my web access is a once-daily-accessed desktop CPU…nor do I checkmark the “notify me when new posts occur” box.

          Inre “Constitutional Convention” being: “suicide,” “easily be subverted, probably make things even worse,” and similar skepticisms/FUD (Fear-Uncertainty-Doubt), here’s a different view.
          – FUD – one of leftist-politicians’ favorite tools. I wonder why?
          – “easily subverted”…history suggests otherwise. It’s worth remembering our present Constitution came about after a “constitutional convention” was called in the 1780s to AMEND the experientially-determined fatally-flawed (cf: Revolutionary War), Articles of Confederation. Even back then in those “good old days” of >50% anti-Crownism at the “national level” (in reality, we were the Disunited States), Convention progress was: contentious; painfully slow; anything BUT easy. And its end product (a new Constitution proffered for states’ ratification), came about once it (slowly/painfully) became apparent the Articles could NOT be usefully/acceptably-to-all-states modified, and in that sense the end product represented an “out of control” Constitutional Convention. Even then, it required the (promise of) some 10 amendments (aka “Bill of Rights”) before sufficient independent, squabbling, states would ratify it.

          IMO, no national Constitutional Convention (convoked per our increasingly-ignored Constitution’s guidelines) would output ANYthing “easily”, whether worthwhile or utter societal garbage.

          Further, I believe the likely-accompanying national debate/conversation siamesed to a Constitutional Convention could only be to the good, if by “good” we mean “likely to ‘wake’ more citizens.” As to what its output would be, there’s but one way to find out.

          Still worried about it being utter sh!t? State ratification has to occur within Constitutionally-defined time-constraints. Bi-coastal rot, “democracy,” and lefty-mob rule are certainly realities these days, but how likely is it that sufficient flyover STATES would vote to commit self-evident suicide? Think 2016 election/Electoral College/flyover-country-reality.

          Meanwhile, I choose to imagine the latest congressional Senate BS of yesterday evening, may wake a few more folks to the utterly slimy, self-interested, societally-damaging, scum-sucking reality of uniparty.slugs. No amount of “MSM reality” can put sufficient lipstick on this pig to hide “self-evident reality.”

      Your comment prompted a thought. Getting with the “Trump program” actually means getting with what the U.S. electorate wants and voted for. That needs to be the call to arms.

      Unlike past POTI (plural for POTUS), President Trump is actually committed to fulfilling the promises he made to voters during his campaign. Everything he wants done is what we voted him into office to do. This isn’t about “doing Trump’s bidding” or building “Trump’s wall” as the left/media keep yammering on about – it’s about doing what a majority of American voters elected him to do.

  36. Mulvaney is a talented debater with skunks like Wallace.
    I thought his pushback on Wallace’s contention that Mattis was the first DOD Sec’y to resign for policy reasons was fantastic.
    The bottom line is that folks like Wallace think they can substitute their views (and indeed McGurk, Mattis) for those of our elected POTUS. Baloney to that. If I recall correctly, Gen. McArthur was also fired for similar reasons. These folks serve at the pleasure of the President, which is what Wallace and the rest of the SWAMP need to acknowledge.

    Wallace totally substitutes his knowledge…for what is the best thing for our country. Mulvaney did a TERRIFIC job of explaining roles and responsibilities! And an open admission of the fact that Pres. Trump is not a traditional president. No wonder the swamp and commentators as well as members of Congress are upset. Because we choose NOT to listen to them, and in the end, POTUS has the right to set policy.

    AARG Wallace is a total creep.
