    We are watching “the art of the deal”in action. And, some of Trump’s deals take a long time to complete. San Fran Nan is getting played by a master. She’s so in over her head and it is wonderful to watch. Trump can think out of the box and come up with solutions, while Nan just spins.

              Nonsense. Rush is measured, does not endorse candidates, has been enthralled by DJT’s mastery all along, and has been calling the Russia hoax etc. a coup attempt for about two years. He’s still the go-to guy for good perspective on just about everything, even though he’s sometimes not as strong as we would like.

            “Rush is controlled opposition like the rest of the media”

            correct. Limbaugh is an example of the super symmetry theory as we can see “fake news” or corporate media messaging is not a one way street and requires an equally false narrative from a mirror perspective to seem plausible for a casual observer.

            This is not to say Limbaugh may not be one of the “true believers” that exist in the state, as we have seen, examples such as Deep State Generals sending their own children off to die in the wars of globalist hubris. The “true believer” may be the most irrational and therefore the most dangerous purveyor of the global news model that sells daily the false dichotomy of right vs left or liberal vs conservative.

            Not long ago Limbaugh went SO FAR as to blame the deep state(globalist) for duping his precious Bush conservatives into a Iraq war, replete with fake media narratives (like the yellow cake and sarin gas speculations) for those who recall the setup for the mid east invasion. Limbaughs irrationality has him searching for an avenue of factual basis to stint his errant beliefs. The egomaniacal like Limbaugh are incapable of accepting the deep and total failure of their rhetorical, errant conclusions, choosing instead an echo chamber of consistent repetition of the crafted mantras that have built their media empires, from cable news to talk radio.

            Until those like Limbaugh are able to understand and admit the incredible failure of conclusions that they willingly self indulge in, they are blind to the reasoning that betrays the untenable false positions they continually push.

            Rush said Trump “never caves. He re-positions.” My wife was also listening and she said “Exactly!” Personally, I don’t really understand and am disappointed. I think a great opportunity was lost to have most of the House vacant and the full Senate there (unless Dems boycotted from there also). Refusing to negotiate, refusing to compromise, refusing to authorize pay for the Coast Guard and other federal employees required to work without receiving current pay, and then refusing to hear the President describe the state of the union along with his considerations and recommendations. All of these would’ve been very destructive to the Democrats who would be seen as only obstructionists.

            But Trump has reasons for why he postponed and I trust that he knows better than I.

Limbaughs “skin in the game” goes no further than his ratings and ability to land lucrative ad contracts. If his audience as a whole ever turns on Trump, Limbaugh will suddenly find numerous reasons to declare Trump unfit, at the end of the day Limbaugh is no more than a weather vane.

          This drama has several more acts and scenes before the final curtain comes down after the SOTU. I suspect Trump will be taking bows to a standing ovation of citizens while poor Nancy must sit there behind him, muttering, “Curses! Foiled again!!” Her problem will not be Trump: it will be the Dems, who are not going to be at all happy with her performance; the critics will savage her, and she risks losing control of the House Dems…. some of them are already becoming restive. The longer it drags on, the worse it is for the Dems…especially inasmuch as Trump has offered a bit of compromise. Intransigency on Nancy’s part is not attractive. Trump now controls the timing, because until he gets a bill he won’t veto, nothing they pass will end the shutdown. All the comments from the punditocracy, including Rush, are just noise at the moment. The audience might as well be quiet and settle in to enjoy the drama. None of us is on the stage; we are just the audience.

        These recent events may make it more likely that PDT will declare a national emergency. He will fold in the government shutdown with the uncontrolled invasion and need for border security and will use his emergency powers to move money as needed to fund the wall and government payrolls. The emergency will remain in effect until both are completed. Any attempt by Congress to end the emergency will result in de-funding the government workers.

          In ancient times, not giving the enemy a battle, was not considered a loss at all but a smart strategic move. Pelosi was gonna lose anyhow because Trump forced her to show up.

            Wrong!

            Article 2, Section 3 of the US Constitution: The POTUS “may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses,” This section is interesting as it gives the POTUS great leeway over the US Congress.

            Indeed, in the case of a divided Congress, he may adjourn it too. Which I don’t know a President has ever done. But Pelosi is walking a very fine line here because she’s become extremely intransigent.

            Heck, I think the likes of Maxine Waters should have been adjourned years ago.

              I strongly agree with most of your comment, but I suspect the meaning of that language in that section referring to adjournment is different than what we take it to be in modern times. After the explicit statement of his power to “upon extraordinary Occasions convene both or either body of congress” the language using adjournment is giving the president the authority, discretion, and power to choose when the covenement will take place. I don’t believe it gives the president the authority to adjourn congress when it is in session. That would be a distinct violation of the separation of powers. And I don’t see anything granting Pelosi the power to postpone the SOTU or restrict its delivery from taking place in the House chambers, especially if the Senate Majority Leader requested it to be delivered there.

              Speaking of that, where has dear old Mitch been throughout this confrontation? He has been a no-show which isn’t really that surprising.

    Dear Mr. President,

    Give us an Oval Office Budgeting 101 speech instead. SHOW US how we come out ahead when we build the wall. Just like you did when you showed us how much you cared in
    2005 about the U.N. Renovation Cost to the U.S. Taxpayers.

    We need clear and professional VISUALS and someone to provide sign language for the deaf. IF Bill Shine can’t handle it, get someone else!

    REMIND all of us, including Nitwit Nancy & Cryin’ Chuck, exactly when the Budgeting Deadlines are, and what you submitted and when. A timeline. SHOW us that they are almost 4 months behind DUE DATE and that is NOT your fault. This is them kicking the can, as usual, and has to stop! REMIND US that they approved their own salaries and left the others to be kicked down the road.

    Tell us that real BLACKMAIL is continually expecting us to provide funding to countries who push their poor and criminals on us, and then expecting us to also house, feed, school and fund them as illegals on our own soil too.

    BLACKMAIL is expecting us to fund opioid and drug abuse prevention programs when we are not the culprits spreading those drugs and making all the profits off them. WHY are we being blackmailed year after year for drug prevention programs. WHY aren’t the manufacturers and doctors and drug peddlers funding this? WHY is it my problem all the time?

    BLACKMAIL is the amount of housing and judges we need to support non-enforcement of our existing immigration laws at the hands of activist judges, and the fact that Congress won’t do their jobs and fix the things that are broken.

    As a citizen, I also want to know why we paid families for deaths in 9/11? I want to know why we aren’t paying angel moms and dads, and families? Or families affected by gangs? This is all preventable, just like vaccines supposedly prevent disease. I want a day of memory for all of them as well. We have one for 9/11 where much fewer people died. WHY?

    I want to know where we stand on the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Report and other independent reports. Are we safer now than we were then? What are the holes we need to plug STAT?

    The networks will have to carry it.

      Trump sycophants will crow that Trump is brilliant [and some are saying he folded].

      The truth is in between: Pelosi had the power to pull this stunt, and used it. Trump understood the reality, and instead of trying to nuke it, said “OK…we’ll do it your way. I’ll give the speech after the shutdown, which you Dems triggered, is over”.

      He is NOT giving a written SOTU. He wants to give a speech with Pelosi sitting behind him making faces while he rips her a new one for her childish stunt.

      Today the Senate will fail to pass any bill. The shutdown will continue. Federal workers will increasingly wonder why the Dems are hurting THEM over a lousy $5B for better border security. The Dreamers will increasingly wonder why the Dems won’t take a deal that makes THEIR lives better over a lousy $5B for better border security. The pressure on the Dems will increase daily to negotiate.

      The real concern is for the GOP in the Senate to not cave. A guess is that Trump NOT going nuclear on this speech was necessary to keep some of these RINOs in line. So be it. A general has to work with the troops he has.

        i say CERTAIN because that is what I heard first hand from one of their ranks when Trump had been nominated and he shared with me their dream, having too much hubris to realize that not everyone attributes wisdom to him simply because he has been able to make money by getting in bed with sharks and abandoning integrity and humanity.

  15. It doesn’t side which side hates, they always hear through a filter. Right now some are saying Rush is caving on Trump, that he was a Jeb supporter.
    I’m sorry, but unless the Bay Area has a different broadcast of Rush’s show he never loved Jeb and he never was against Trump.
    My evidence?
    Like me, Rush knew that Trump’s journey through all sorts of industries with the public gave him a unique vantage point to interact with all levels of society.
    Like me, Rush knew that Trump, as a Queens millionaire, was fawned over for his money, but was sneered at for his ‘class’. Given Trump actually DOES like to find the good in people I suspect the most hurtful thing for him has been to see how many people who he contributed to, to whom he gave the benefit of the doubt, who have turned on him so viciously, e.g. Oprah’s rah rah go for the presidency interview in 1984 (before she turned into a racist heifer) and more recently Romney’s jaw dropping flip from praising him as a benefactor to criticizing him as a fiend.

    I actually listened to Rush REGULARLY during the campaign and since because he was explaining Trump to people. He made it explicitly clear that he never endorses because that lands the entire media against a candidate, but he gave sound advice and was supportive, evidence of which is that Trump WROTE in once and CALLED in twice to thank Rush.

    If you listened to ALL of Rush today you would have heard him explain that the MEDIA says that Trump caved. He did not and is not saying that. He is standing by, watching and rather trustful of Trump’s instincts.

    From the transcripts of the program today, at the end, i submit this:

    (First, look at the title)
    https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2019/01/24/hang-in-there-mr-president-and-ignore-the-media-narratives/

    “Oh, so the reason Trump caved on the State of the Union is because you are abandoning him out there. That’s right. You want Trump to get this government back up and running. You think Trump’s been making a big blunder here, big mistake. So you are leaving. You are abandoning Trump and Trump’s finally seen the evidence of that, and so he had no choice but than to relent on the State of the Union otherwise he would lose you. That’s the media story. That’s what they’re sticking to.”

    Hatred of Trump or hatred of Rush…either way, your filters can get really whacked.

    For those who are praising PDJT’s decision about the SOTU and angry at the posters who are criticizing or questioning the decision, I would like to remind you that two completely opposite actions cannot both be right. Had POTUS decided to do the SOTU at an alternative location, the same people applauding this current decision would have applauded that opposite decision. No one is right 100% of the time. Why are you afraid of healthy debate, and particularly afraid of criticizing an action you disagree with, even if it is President Trump? He’s a big boy, I think he can take it.

      I actually thought what he did was brilliant. He was extremely polite and handed this ugly plate of turds back to Pelosi and her army. If SHE wants the government re-opened, SHE is going to have to do it. Trump and America can wait.

    The Senate failed to pass the two bills ‘opening the government’ today. The President must have the partial ($5.7b) for The Wall. The ‘caravans’ are still coming, Mexico is not helping, and Venezuela is in turmoil. Nancy is not going to give in, and we must have the Wall. It’s now time to declare the National Emergency, send the Corps of Engineers down to the border to build the Wall, and sign the CR to pay the furloughed government workers. /LEJ

    Tradition. President Trump is keeping with tradition and showing respect to those traditions.

    The shutdown is now in Pelosi’s lap. The MSM will spin it as Trump’s shutdown because Nancy doesn’t want a wall. No, she desires the illegals keep coming in.

    Is this issue now at an impasse?

    Gaming the Botox junkie, not caving. How many times has POTUS got her all worked up and then just changed the narrative? I trust DJT more than any other elected leader, and constantly remind myself that he has been far more successful with plans of all kinds than any of us. Who knows but when the SOTU is finally given with the Madame Speaker behind him, perhaps we will get to enjoy watching her really give those teeth a work out. Pass out the floss with the boxes of popcorn.

    I’ve changed my mind about PDJT’s decision to delay the speech so he can deliver it in the House. I believe now that it would have been better for him to be more like the Trump of 2016 but it doesn’t lessen my overall support for him and his policies. The border (if possible) would have been the optimal location given the Dem intransigence.

    Mark Steyn who is definitely pro Trump and is a regular guest on Tucker Carlson wrote:
    “I retain my queasiness about the whole ghastly ritual, (SOTU) and I have a general preference for the non-house-trained Trump – the Trump that demolished Jeb! & co by not playing by their rules, or the media’s, or the Democrats.”

    Perhaps Gorka’s heads up about something big coming “within 24 hours” will shake things up again and it will make sense.

    What bothers me is no one speaks about the population of America relating to demographics if the invasion of thousands a year isn’t stopped. By 2050, can you imagine the majority of the US???

    US constitution, Article 2, Section 3> Duties of the president> “He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information on the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.”

    Trump is making a mistake! He should convene both sections of congress for the SOTU address. And have Nancy Pelosi arrested for treason if she trys to interfere. Note that on top of the SOTU the president is expected to address congress and MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS. I can think of no better subject than the wall and border security. Is this an extraordinary Occasion, the longest government shutdown in history(Yes, and it is his duty). For too long congress has not passed a budget and relying on temporary spending measures and kabuki theather drama to get them passed. Now congress is not doing their job, which primarily is to pass a budget, does not deserve to get paid, get benefits, etc. Maybe Trump should adjourn the house and tell their home state to send someone else.
