    Trump will eventually have to veto the bill. If they override, fair enough. The Swamp wins that round. McConnell really is an absolute snake.

    Play it by ear at that point. He can still declare a national emergency. He can wait for the Supreme Court to end Obama’s DACA nonsense, and then use that as leverage. Whatever happens though, he has to get some of these Swamp creatures on the record so they can get hammered next election.

      It’s almost Feb and still no wall! There is 18 months to get this done. Please, DJT, you’ve been great handling this and have shown the fascist left for what they are. But now, please pull the plug and get the army in to do it!

      Speaking of SCOTUS…where oh where is RBG? What I suspect is possible is that Trump would’ve already nuked these clowns but is delaying for the time being. He’s going to get a big win and a big fight replacing RBG. Hence a huge strategic victory opportunity in her replacement.

      railer, and he said more than once he has OTHER possibilities and Pelosi and Schumer will be more mentally disturbed at those possibilities happening. Remember, Trump plans ahead and is well informed about what is happening, what is not happening, and he also knows the powers as our Executive/CEO for a lot of things that dear mentally disturbed Pelosi doesn’t even know about.

    Maybe President Trump could use an existing (Dem) emergency to build the wall!

          Most likely true. Have you found another job? Or worked at a part time job while you have been out? You will be made whole. Unlike the 10,000 employees at my company who were furloughed after 9-11. They didn’t get any offers either, just lost their jobs, income, homes, spouses and some even their life.

          Nancy could find 5+ billion in loose change in the couch in her office, She just doesn’t want to and she give give a crap less about you and all the other temporally furloughed federal workers.

  5. PDJT is wasting his time because the weak spineless pussy GOP are bound to cave again to the will of their Uniparty counterparts. My greatest fear is that they are going to force PDJT to concede more and more to their demands which will result in the majority of his base turning against him resulting in a Dem 2020 win

      That’s exactly what the useless GOP will do. They’re in bed with the Democrats and have much to lose if the crimes committed in The Swamp are ever brought to light. The country be damned to both Republicans and Democrats. Their globalist masters always come first!

        President Trump has time to bring those crimes to light. I hope it is soon, but I realize he has to do it for maximum impact. The traitors can not slip through the net.
        As far as 2020, if election fraud is not addressed, I am afraid he will lose. They did well in 2018 flipping elections with ballot harvesting and ballots found after the election. 2016 will not happen again. The deep state will do what it takes to remove PDJT.

    “Senate Democrats reject Trump’s ‘pro-rated’ wall funding pitch
    Jordain Carney01/24/19 08:57 PM EST
    Senate Democrats will not support President Trump’s proposal for a “prorated” funding for the U.S.-Mexico border wall.

    A spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Thursday Senate Democrats won’t support funding for the U.S.-Mexico border wall “prorated or otherwise.”

    “Sen. Schumer and Senate Democrats have made clear to Leader McConnell and Republicans that they will not support funding for the wall, prorated or otherwise,” the spokesman said. ”

    Good. I was hoping they’d reject.

      This process was never going to be easy. It has to be that the swamp is exposed on both side. The public has to see the complete disregard and corruption of the professional political class. Sure, some will never believe their own eyes and discount their experiences and accept the “expert” and unbiased Deep State media version of events.

          Not so sure, Whit. I saw the Kavanaugh debacle and thought naively, “How can any normal human being vote for these scum?” But they did and they gave them back the House. Nothing can be taken for granted these days. That’s why we should assume that DJT has only 20 or so months left to get the wall built and voter ID sorted. At this rate, it’s going to come down to 2 million patriots heading to the border with pick-up trucks, cement mixers and welding tools.

  11. URGENT- Roger Stone has been ARRESTED by Mueller! Just caught the news from the Daily Mail front page. Sorry, but can’t provide the link, but the story is breaking on line.

    This means no holds barred anymore. They are coming for President Trump’s friends and acquaintances and hauling them off to JAIL!

    Why TF hasn’t Herr Nazi Mueller been stopped? Who’s next- Devin Nunez? Jim Jordan? Mass arrests of the Deplorables?

    The war just escalated. Forget about impeachment. This is an actual COUP taking placers I write this.

    The Dims will not fund the wall. President Trump needs to declare an emergency immediately and announce plans to build the wall.
    He will not need to give the Dims anything if he does this. Next he can move to opening the govt. If the Dims try to stop hiim from building the wall, the shutdown is now entirely on the Dims.

      One last comment.
      If President Trump believes there is a national emergency, and in fact he and others have already said this, AND knows that Congress will not fund the wall, he has a requirement to declare said emergency, or he will be negligent in dealing with this problem.

      He can then declare that the wall funding is off the table, and that govt. can reopen. If Dims decide to judge shop and stop the President from acting on the wall, then President Trump can squarely put the blame of the govt. shutdown on the Dims.

      We have less that two years to secure the border and I do not believe the Dims will help us. It is up to our fearless leader VSGPDJT.

        Every death or injury at the hands of people who came w/out papers should be cited in stats he releases. Every person thought to have terrorist connections–include that number. TAke the states of tX, CA, NM, AZ and cite the financial burdens. Cite the number of jobs Americans lose to illegals.

        Trump: If a POTUS cannot protect the borders of the US and the peope w/in, he is not doing his first Constitutional duty. Name names of citizens who have lost their lives to those here illegally and keep repeating: they would not be dead if that person had failed in his/her attempt to enter our country.

    Simple question to the morons in Congress. Are you going to include funds to repair the existing border wall in your zeal to increase border security? If so, then the existing wall does work. If not, it’s all politics to defeat this president.

    Okay, both Schumer and Nan have already said today they will not under any circumstance support the building of a security barrier.

    I say don’t wait three weeks at all. Ask to speak to the public via Oval Office speech tomorrow.
    Quote exactly what they said or dammit, in the Oval, show a video of their saying it.

    Look squarely into the camera and say you had hoped that your gesture today would bring forth not only paychecks for those who need them but renewed talks…but that the two “leaders” of what used to be termed the “loyal opposition” (sarc) have made it clear they have no position from which to begin talks anew.

    Therefore, list all the reasons the situation on the southern border is dire and DECLARE the EMERGENCY. No more waiting.

    Then, get yourself into the Senate to which you were invited, and give your State of the Union.
    Perhaps it will set a new protocol, one which robs the HOUSE of the one night of the year they get cameras on them. Screw you, Nan.
