Speaker Pelosi and Chuck Schumer: “We Hope Donald Trump Learned his Lesson”…

Taking a victory lap around the White House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer hold a press conference after President Trump agreed to temporarily re-open government (three weeks), without any funding or promises toward a southern border wall.

.

Additionally, it seems Speaker Pelosi is positioning herself to use the current investigative calendar, and narrative as built therein, as a rebuke for an illegitimate President Trump – keeping him from making any State of the Union speech within the House chamber.

    Disgusting! Such outright disrespect for the duly elected PRESIDENT BY THE PEOPLE OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY. A country whom many lives have been sacrificed for. Have these fools no decorum?

    Pelosi, you can start by making a difference indoor own district…….clean up San Fran! Such a gorgeous city now ladened with incredible filth on the streets, feces, urine, needles, and the homeless bunking down nightly on the sidewalks. You should be completely ashamed.
    Furthermore, you can’t even relate to your own constituents – you are so far removed from them….you use and abuse them for your political and financial gain. Clearly you answer to someone/powers other than those you were elected to represent. Resign!!!

        R/T: Which is why we no longer go that once beautiful city and advise everyone we know to never ever plan to visit there because of diseases from caca and urine and outright sex on the sidewalks which is spreading more and more thruout the city. Park a car on the streets $3.75 by card for ONE HOUR! Cost of anything there is way too high, good restaurants and other businesses have left, SF known thruout the world as the city with the worst traffic, and the new governor Newsom is Pelosi’s nephew so the state will go further down the sewer as he wants medicare for ALL ILLEGALS! To be sure he won’t cough up any of or Pelosi’s money to pay for this stupidity!

    • Read Dan Bongino’s “In the bubble” if that is not D.C. and explains it all I do not know what does. These “Elected officials” are so arrogant, so pious, so “better than you or me” that it is pathetic. They have no clue as to real life outside of that NON-US state called D.C… That is NOT what our founders envisioned our elected should act like, live like, do like.
      We at one time were concerned because this nation is large, so our elected had difficulty getting back and forth from their states to D.C., we at one time were concerned that so many of our elected officials became broke after serving.
      None of the above happens anymore, as a matter of fact, they are abusing the heck out of our goodwill. They are as bad as any “welfare baby” spoiled to the umpth degree!
      The thing that really gets my goat is the audacity to state things about our President such as he is “Un-Presidential” or “: boorish” or ill-manered, when their behavior and as you have stated above “decorum” is very unfitting of them, when this President has given them every grace, and respect!

    Fret not, and think big picture. They blame Trump for shutdown, and say they won’t negotiate till the government is reopened. He offers them everything they’ve ever wanted in terms of immigration: DACA, TPS, pathway to citizenship, yada, yada, yada. They say no. He says he doesn’t need ALL the money, just a down payment. They say no. So he takes them at their word, and signs a short term continuing resolution, minus funds for the wall. Democrats claim victory. Even admit that it was to teach him a lesson (which means it wasn’t because they actually cared). Prediction: Democrats and Press will go on a bender talking about how he caved, he can’t negotiate, he is a used car salesman, etc, ad infinitum. They will use this to try to drive a wedge between him and the base. They will say, “He let you down, he hurt Americans, and why? For his ego? Do you really want to vote for someone like that? Do we really want an egomaniac as a President?” But they won’t negotiate in good faith. Did you notice that phrase? And February 15 will come around, and they will send a CR with no wall funds, and he’ll sign it. And they’ll claim victory. And then…
    President Trump will call a press conference and announce that despite his best efforts to negotiate in good faith with Democrats, they would not engage. Despite being offered everything they’ve ever wanted, they showed that their opposition is personal. They don’t like me. That’s ok, not everybody does. But I love America. And because they have not negotiated, and because they have shown they never will, I declare a national emergency and order the construction of a fifty billion dollar wall that stretches the entire length of the border. And there will be no DACA, and there will be no TPS, or any other program that is intended to reward those who are here illegally.

    They had their chance, but America cannot afford to pay for their petty, personal reaction. I will protect America! We will build this wall, and I so direct the Army Corp of Engineers to commence Project Wall with speed and efficiency. Good Bless you, and God Bless America!

        A president can thumb his nose at a lower court that tells him to, say, turn over such and such a document. He can’t thumb his nose at a court enjoining Wall construction because he needs thousands of people to execute his order to commence construction and THEY WILL NOT start building the wall if a federal judge has said it cannot proceed.

          And if it doesn’t move up and through SCOTUS quickly, it will become a 2020 campaign issue, but that may be too late because much of his base will abandon him. I can’t count how many people today, after his announcement, said to me that they’d had it and that they would give him 3 weeks and then the wall better be built. They don’t care that the Dems may use the courts to interfere and slow him down, if it isn’t built immediately after he declares a national emergency, they are not going to support him in 2020.

          That’s a very sad thing. That’s what the UniParty wants (not just the left, but the entire UniParty). And too many people are so shortsighted that they don’t understand that even if he can never get the wall, he’s still done more for America already than other presidents do in 2 terms. Only Washington and Lincoln can compare in what they did for this country. Even as great as Reagan was, his entire 2 terms didn’t do what Trump has already done, but people have short memories and will join the foolish Ann Coulters of the world and walk away. They will either support someone who can’t do anywhere near what this president has already done, or they’ll not vote at all. Either way, America loses. He should be judged on what he’s done and tried to do, not on what he couldn’t get done because of the UniParty resistance. Hopefully a lot of people will wake up quickly

            And they’re probably too stupid to know that one way to vote in a Dem is to not vote. Every GOP vote that is not cast is a vote that the Dems don’t have to match or exceed. As you said, who will they vote for thinking that candidate is better than Trump?? What good alternative is out there?? The Dems will thank every person who abandons Trump, because that is their goal.

        For the life of me, I cannot understand how any patriotic American who loves this country and hates socialism/communism could ever abandon our President who has not only given up a happy prosperous life for us but has been the target of every last globalist and left wing media corporation. I see pics of Melania and Barron and want to cry over what that family has endured.

        And then I remember the Obama years where those horrific anti-America liars took over our healthcare system, put people on food stamps, apologized for our country, ran guns to Mexico drug cartels to get rid of our 2nd amendment, let people die in Benghazi and allowed Black Lives Matter and their DOJ instigators to go after law enforcement, all while they glorified that horror Michelle and those twerking, pot smoking daughters.

        The thought of Sanders, or Warren, or Harris or O’Rourke or whoever the left will run in 2020 makes my physically ill. Look at Cuomo and now Vermont who have pushed the murder for full term babies!

        Pres Trump has done everything he can to get that Wall. He is up against the power of Satan himself but has never given up.

        Stay home in 2020 and let them destroy our country for a century? Just because we may not get everything we asked for?

                If Trump makes it through two full terms, we’ll no longer have to worry about the future. Because the only way he CAN make it that far is if he is fully successful in achieving his/our goals. And part of that is fundamentally changing the way things are set up in this country, how the balance of power shifts, how much EXPOSURE is brought to the PTB, including the MSM and others. So if Trump makes it through a full two terms, we’ll be fine. Because by that point it wouldn’t matter if someone came along who wanted to turn the clock back on Trump’s changes…. they would have NO chance of being elected.

Trump always plans weeks to months ahead. It has now come out that he can close down the Congress completely which I think would be a great move in the right direction as they only represent themselves and big money, can by his powers also put forth the National Emergency Crisis and they can’t do a thing to stop him or it, and, yes get the 50 billion because they would not come forward with a mere 5.7 billion. They are blind to reality and I thank God for that! Close the Congress down, please Trump and no salary or benefits allowed, then after they are gone we form a new Congress that follows our Constitution and Bill of Rights and preferably not in the diseased DC but elsewhere. Let the little children think they have won the argument against parent and then find they are in deeper doodoo and real trouble.

    1) Let me break it down for those of you irrationally jumping to conclusions. Trump is doing this to prove that the Dems never had any intentions of negotiating. He can only use the EO after all other avenues were explored, for optics reasons.

    Trump didn’t cave. Nothing changed. They are going to continue negotiations, this is temporary. It’s 21 days. Enough time for Trump to give the SOTU. And if the Dems don’t agree to fund the wall by then, Trump said he also still has the EO option. Put your emotion aside.

    Dems basically agreed to fund the wall if the govt re-opened when they said they would negotiate after the govt reopened. If they stick to “no”, then they will be exposed liars and talking point destroyed, Trump wins the optics and go nuclear. If they give the money, Trump wins.

    One other point. If the Dems refuse to give in on the wall they will not get DACA. Trump will declare an emergency and build the wall with no DACA. The base will LOVE that! That is some leverage! The left will try and block it with liberal judges. Trump must take that chance.

      The Trump administration takes it to the Supreme Court, but Ginsberg is still “working from Home.”
      Trump’s legal staff challenges her competency, and wants an independent third party to judge her condition.
      As a result, Ginsberg either recuses herself knowing she’s in no condition to participate, or is found out as medically unfit. Trump either gets his wall, or a new justice.

    Regarding the 35 day furlough as part of the partial government shutdown:

    The federal government is / was the benefactor of the conferred time off, with pay to the furloughed employees of the government.

    The furloughed employees were /are the ‘beneficiaries’ of extra time off, with pay.

    (they were / are not ‘hostages’. because they were free to go elsewhere, travel, or stay home or to seek other employment. And they get paid for week days, time off.)

    Has any other gov’t shut down, mis-called the furloughed employees, ‘hostage’
    (for sensationalistic drama (fake))

    I recently spent 4 days with a furloughed, government emply years. We traveled in the U.S. Neither person was a captor or hostage of the other.
    The time off together was good
    . ( and at no loss of accrued vacation time, from the federal worker. An interesting, special time together.)

    A few observations –

    President Trump had no choice but agree to a ceasefire for three weeks. Too many families were suffering and airports were in turmoil. Unlike Pelosi, he won’t accept “collateral damage”.

    The Dems will not make any concessions, thinking that they have the upper hand. Wrong.

    President Trump will declare the crisis at the border a national emergency at the end of the three weeks.

    The Dems don’t believe he will do it. Wrong. Their refusal to make any concessions will prove they never had any intention of negotiating.

    President Trump has a heart.

    Nancy is a cold-hearted *itch and Schumer is worse.

    • Not only did President Trump take the high ground and demonstrate compassion to the people not receiving paychecks when the Democrats did nothing to help. But he also freed his top people from having to negotiate with the Congress for 3 weeks so they can focus on the Venezuela situation, preparations for the North Korea summit and the fast approaching deadline of the China trade negotiations. Since the Democrats were not interested in truly negotiating, better to continue the fight with them after the big international issues of national security have first been dealt with.

      What comes to Schumer’s comment about the Democrats being firmly against the wall, I found it hilarious. They sure are firmly against the wall all right… standing against the wall waiting for the firing squad of WalkAway to come and finish off their party! They now own the shutdown and its adverse impact on people completely.

      How does a Democrat ever own a government shutdown? Trump will lose any government shutdown battle, bank on it. Public opinion is ALWAYS media driven on the subject of Bureaucrats having to wait out their extra vacation time to collect pay for their extra vacation time. There is and has never been a Government shutdown. If there was, most people would see that the benefits of a government shutdown would far outweigh the consequences. The vast majority of the money we submit to our betters in Government is completely wasted. This is because there is no profit incentive for “civil service” time spent pretending to work. The only thing Bureaucrats are really good at is sucking up to their superiors inside their Bureaus. This is because sucking up is the only thing that can get them any rewards for their time spent in “civil service”. No more vacations and retirement benefits paid by collecting 80% of the taxes needed to support this malignancy. I want a real Government shutdown!

    I agree that things are looking grim here. But we are talking Trump here-a man who pulled the upset of the century in 2016 and a man backed by millions of Christians who are praying fervently for his success. With God all is possible. Where there is a will there is a way-and no one has a stronger will than our current president Trump. We must take the long vision here-if Trump wins re-election in 2020 he can finish the wall during those next 4 years. I believe Trump and the good Lord are in this for the long haul. I will keep praying for this president and hope many more will also.
    IN God I Trust!! May God Bless America!

      Here, the Congress has already enacted and President George W. Bush signed into law, the Secure Fence Act of 2006. It is already the law of the land that a border wall shall be built along the United States’ Southern border. Neither Congress nor any private plaintiff can challenge the official determination that a border wall or barrier shall built. That is the law. That is the official determination of both the U.S. Congress and the Commander in Chief.

      The Secure Fence Act of 2006 was never implemented (other than a few miles) because Congress did not appropriate the funds to pay for it. There are two steps: Authorization and Appropriation of funds. The decision to build a border wall is final. The only question is applying funds to make it happen.

      Building of a border wall under the 2006 Act was also not completed because the Swamp and Deep State sabotaged it. Using classic bureaucratic games, the bureaucracy and open borders legislators followed “designed to fail” steps that ground the construction to a halt.

      Note that in spite of the word “fence” in the title, the law does not actually mandate a “fence” in particular. The wording of the Act is not about a “fence” but about any kind of barrier customized to the particular terrain in each location to the extent necessary to “the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics, and other contraband.” That is “all.” As in “all.”

      So the Secure Fence Act of 2006 requires building “whatever it takes” — not a “fence” per se. The Act does require specific enhanced barriers and lights, cameras, and sensors, in some named locations.

      Fourth, could liberals run to the courts to block Trump from using the military to build a border wall? No. Only those with “standing” can bring a lawsuit. How is anyone harmed?

      The federal courts have been waging Jihad against citizens bringing lawsuits for decades. The federal courts have been raising the bar higher and higher to make it nearly impossible for anyone to challenge the actions of government agencies or public officials. Specifically a complaint that is shared generally by much of the population cannot establish standing.

      Contrary to strongly-held popular belief, the U.S. Supreme Court has clearly ruled that taxpayers do not have standing to challenge government spending, revenue, or action merely because they are taxpayers. See, Daimlerchrysler Corp. v. Cuno, 126 S.Ct. 1854, 164 L.Ed.2d 589, 547 U.S. 332 (2006). So the Left cannot block Trump’s plans by suing as taxpayers. (The only exceptions involve use of funds to establish a religion or local government taxpayers.)

      Similarly, Members of Congress do not have standing either. Certainly individual Members of Congress do not. See Raines v. Byrd, 521 U.S. 811 (1997).

      To bring a lawsuit, one must show that they are tangibly harmed, personally, not just in disagreement with a policy. If Trump uses some of the $700 billion in the omnibus bill to build a border wall, everyone will be more safe. How is anyone harmed?

      Fifth, can private landowners, some of whom will be liberals, go to court and stop the use of private land as an easement taken by eminent domain? No.

    Fret not, and think big picture. They blame Trump for shutdown, and say they won’t negotiate till the government is reopened. He offers them everything they’ve ever wanted in terms of immigration: DACA, TPS, pathway to citizenship, yada, yada, yada. They say no. He says he doesn’t need ALL the money, just a down payment. They say no. So he takes them at their word, and signs a short term continuing resolution, minus funds for the wall. Democrats claim victory. Even admit that it was to teach him a lesson (which means it wasn’t because they actually cared). Prediction: Democrats and Press will go on a bender talking about how he caved, he can’t negotiate, he is a used car salesman, etc, ad infinitum. They will use this to try to drive a wedge between him and the base. They will say, “He let you down, he hurt Americans, and why? For his ego? Do you really want to vote for someone like that? Do we really want an egomaniac as a President?” But they won’t negotiate in good faith. Did you notice that phrase? And February 15 will come around, and they will send a CR with no wall funds, and he’ll sign it. And they’ll claim victory.

    And then…

    President Trump will call a press conference and announce that despite his best efforts to negotiate in good faith with Democrats, they would not engage. Despite being offered everything they’ve ever wanted, they showed that their opposition is personal. They don’t like me. That’s ok, not everybody does. But I love America. And because they have not negotiated, and because they have shown they never will, I declare a national emergency and order the construction of a fifty billion dollar wall that stretches the entire length of the border. And there will be no DACA, and there will be no TPS, or any other program that is intended to reward those who are here illegally.

    They had their chance, but America cannot afford to pay for their petty, personal reaction. I will protect America! We will build this wall, and I so direct the Army Corp of Engineers to commence Project Wall with speed and efficiency. Good Bless you, and God Bless America!

So he’d positioned himself so as to make clear that the Declaration of National Emergency was forced upon him in the interests of defending the people of the United States. It will then go to the Supreme Court and there, Trump’s decision will be ratified. I don’t see how Ann Coulter or the NY Daily News can claim this is a cave.

    Trump needs to show Americans that drug and human traffickers own the Democrat party. His State of Emergency should be based on the legislation of the War on Drugs. Classify victims of narcotics as victims of Mexico’s narco-terrorism. Economic sanctions against narco-terrorist Mexico are in order. Seizure of Mexican assets in the USA are in order. Closure of the ports of entry is in order. The US military should be used to build the wall, but it should also invade Mexico and create a militarized buffer zone. Terrorist cartels should be target killed using drones.

    Want to see 20 million illegals self deport? Place US military alongside ICE and go into the Sanctuary cities and begin removing Mexican drug cartels and street gangs as enemy combatants, and seize the assets of those who aid and abet them. Anything short of this will not produce the desired outcome which is war against Mexico, permanent occupation of a militarized zone where work prisons for illegals and insurgents can be operated, and removal of its political influence in the USA. When this is done the US Mafia, which is in alliance with Mexico’s ruling class, will be isolated from its supply and ready for rendition, That is, the majority of our elected officials who took bribes for decades kept the the border open to terrorists will be ready to be tried and executed for treason.

    Very good job.

    The legal concerted, public efforts are also shining light upon the bottleneck, and obfuscation sources – for more and more people to more clearly see.

    After 13 years of various obfuscations, the next 3 weeks will also be illuminating to the public.
    (While knowing that the allinsky obfuscation tactics by the dems and media will attempt to spin proven safety efforts, otherwise, again.)

    Thank you to the furloughed workers for serving 35 days to help our national security.
    All gave some,
    Some gave their all.
    The federal govm’t. is the benefactor,
    and the furloughed employees are the beneficiaries (35 extra days off work, with full pay and no loss of accrued vacation time).

    The furloughed are / were not “hostages” (as dems called it).

    The furloughed served a public duty and are ‘beneficiaries’.
    [ much more so than than those fight – risk lives – in hand combat in war zones…whom also do so for the benefit, the freedoms, of others elsewhere. ]

    Yet, when serving for our countries freedom and security (which IS appreciated)….
    All give (or gave) some,
    Some give (or gave) their All.

    Not that it is needed for an emergency declaration,
    but the current focused efforts after 13 years of DC obfuscations, are ADDING
    credence to the consideration of a national emergency executive order for the public’s safety…..
    to which the court challenges will run out in months…
    meanwhile other segments of the steel curtain construction, remain underway.

    20 more days…and the solutions are more clear to more and more people…
    …the steel curtain is cost effective and when fully constructed with enhanced, secure, friendly, ports of entry for ‘Legal’ accesses,
    then our country will have fewer illegal drugs, and more ‘Legal’ people here.

    Furloughed employees,
    Thank you for your part in serving.
