Sunday Talks: Mick Mulvaney Discusses Border Security and Government Shutdown Fight…

It is a rather incredulous dynamic where President Trump is fighting to secure the southern border, while the Democrat speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, coordinates resistance bribes from Mexican cartels to stop him. I digress…

In this segment from Fox News Sunday, acting Chief-of-Staff Mick Mulvaney discusses the issues around trying to get funding for U.S. border security and the possibility of another government shutdown.

    I am jacks complete lack of surprise….

    Uniparty is gonna pass a toothless veto-proof immigration bill. Trump won’t beable to stop it. It will also allocate funding for “””smart”””” wall stuff, which will remove his case for declaring emergency. This is FUBAR.

          Stab, you must be a new blogger here as the rest of know that Trump has always planned way ahead and leads the show and the democrats are the dumb as rocks thinking they have him where they want him, but it vice versa. Trump has more than one way to get the wall built and the total sum of money he needs to do so. He knows we don’t want DACA, dreamers, chain families, anchor babies, etc. and welfare taken from all those able to work and support those proven disabled and for a time precondition users. Trump doesn’t go to the mattress, he makes then for the others!

    The way to deliver pain is probably not through a government shutdown, since the shutdown can affect travel, passport renewal, etc., and, as we saw, result in selective government employee slowdowns and sick-outs. And media creates negative optics.

    Would it not be preferable for POTUS to veto a debt ceiling increase? As executive, could he not keep government open but use executive power to cut “non-essential” services and programs? And those non-essential programs would just happen to include NPR, Planned Parenthood, and other uniparty sacred cows.

    Response of POTUS to uniparty: pass a balanced budget. Don’t spend money you don’t have. Don’t mortgage the children’s future.

    And, while POTUS is at it, he can continue “upgrading” and “extending” units of wall.

      More talk, that’s all it is.
      These weak republicans are a joke, they think that they can shame the dems and somehow they’ll come around. A patchwork barrier will be useless, very fluid situation.
      And begging and settling for a lessor amount of money shows how weak they are too.

      We need a WALL on the southern border, a whole wall and a multifaceted plan.
      Not some little Fischer Price nonsense that the globalist dems and RINOs want.

    I’m glad someone else touched on that 3rd rail, the drug dealers bribing public/elected officials.

    I worked to border/drugs with the military and when you look at the amount of drugs flowing into the US you can’t believe that it’s all due to the cartel’s work alone, someone’s feeding them the information and acting on their part to facilitate their work. Their operations are so immense and well worked that it can’t be sustained without help. It’s like believing that Amazon is run out of a storefront.

    When you look at the current drug scene you see cocaine, crack and heroin reaching into the far corners of the most rural areas and at easily affordable prices and that means just one thing – it’s getting here in volume. It’s arriving in such volume that it can pass through multiple distribution and processing points allowing each handler to make a good profit yet is still affordable at user level – volume.

    You see the pictures of huge amounts confiscated by police from Federal to local, huge stacks of money too, these are heavily throwaways by distributors designed to help authorities look not so bad though many are legit. Bottom line is that despite these seizures prices stay low and volume stays high.

    The self-serving canard that the meth we see is made by Southern hillbillies in barns is finally dead, it’s no longer a state secret that Mexican cartel mega-meth labs using tons of medical grade Chinese/Indian pseudoephedrine freely imported into Mexico. Ditto heroin grown in fields that the US has allowed to be grown in Afghanistan alongside of our troops, just as we did in SEA during the Vietnam War. Oh yeah, and the designed drug components and fentanyl we KNOW is coming from China, some right freely through the US mails. Seems that somehow the US and Chinese governments, both of whom have the best surveillance systems in the world, cannot seem to get a handle on the drug trade.

    Let’s see the Senators ad Reps at the state and Federal level not only release ALL of their financial information, especially a full accounting of their political donors and private contracts, but also sit for a polygraph on if they have any financial interests of any kind with know drug dealers. Especially those East and West Coast states, and a Midwest state or two, where drugs are a cultural thing and a major contributor to the states’ coffers.

    Just sayin’…

        The DEA site had a report a few years back that showed the price for a kilo of cocaine hadn’t risen all that much, inflation considered, from 1980 to the day the report was written. That can only mean there’s enough coming through to not only meet the increasing market for it and crack but meet those street needs despite the ‘huge seizures’ that all ‘fighting’ the wars make.

          The border security proposal with a barrier in segments is just common sense. I presumptively suspect any Congressman who refuses to support a barrier of receiving cartel money.
          Real journalists would be going through their campaign finance records and business dealings with a fine toothed comb. There are too few real journalists. I wonder how many of them receive cartel money.

      RE rural drug distribution: Look no further than all the uncontrolled airstrips that dot the land here in Texas.

        In Utah the entire area from west of SLC to Nevada was a landing strip. Way back the Air Base used to get runners landing out west on Fed property but were prevented from directly reporting them to DEA. Once they had an F-105 make a super low-level hi-speed pass over a smaller plane offloading – blew everyone all over the place and most likely had the ground crew out buying new undies.
        We were installing old Hawk radar batteries in places on the US/Mex border where runners were flying in thru canyons or using the mountains to mask radar…didn’t slow them a bit.
        Barry Seal told the world how he avoided US radar and how the Communists and…others…were involved in the trade while Cuba was a transhipment point for drugs coming into the US – and, it was rumored’ the Russians helped the runners find gaps in US radar coverage.
        It’s bigger than all of us…and nobody just says ‘NO’.

      All the drugs & dope & smack & coke in the world couldn’t harm a fly IF IF IF stupid people would simply have enough common sense & self-awareness to say to themselves: No Way do I want to be a drug-user, drug-addict, etc.

      The entire global druggery racket, including Big Pharma, would go bankrupt overnight if people simply said No Thanks to poisoning their own bodies & brains.

      Which drug pusher (legal or illegal) could ever convince me to become dependent on their toxic substances? Not a dang one of them, “white coat” doctors included.

        Don’t start me on that, I think the difference between doctors and street corner drug dealers is paper thin. I can’t wait until some smart tort lawyer decides to go after docs who continue to prescribe drugs that are known to have side effects worse than what they’re treating.

        And yes, if people here didn’t want illegal drugs like their Hollyork idols revel in we would have cartel folks in the food stamp line. I’ve always been a big fan of giving heroin addicts all of the pharma-grade heroin they want making much of the problem self-resolving. Or we could just make using a capital crime and clear up the huge reservoir of crime and misery that leads from the poppy fields to their veins in short order.

    So Mulvaney (the hardest working man in Washington) says this is the Democrats chance to negotiate… What were the last four weeks if not ample time to negotiate? It is clear Pelosi won’t spend a dollar for the wall. The national emergency should’ve already been declared. It will get tied up in the courts and time is of the essence. Moreover, didn’t a lefty judge use Trump’s campaign rhetoric to originally deny him the travel ban? Well, Pelosi made it clear that she has no intention of funding the wall, so move forward the the national emergency and use that as proof Congress won’t address the issue. There was no reason for Trump to cave without simultaneously declaring a state of emergency. Put the pressure back on an “open-government” Congress to pass a spending bill that addresses the border in the meantime (Rome wasn’t built in a day, neither will the wall).

    I get it. Mulvaney is toeing the line. But this was handled poorly. Congrats though, you’ve planted the hundreds of thousands of federal employees who are from the most liberal departments that hate the administration.

    Did I hear right that the CR that POTUS just signed had
    money for Fence replacement. From the 2 ft cow pasture
    fence to the 30 Ft Fence we see on TV?

    Why did POTUS not mention that in his speech. so he got something

    Mulvaney should use penalty funds from the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau (CFSB) which is what Obama and Elizabeth Warren used to fund billions of $$$$ to their activist groups like ACORN. It’s all off-budget money. Wells Fargo just paid a $1 BILLION fine. Start with that and then start fining money transmitters like Western Union and Moneygram and banks for the billions of dollars they launder to Mexico. We can build the wall without Congress or declaring a national emergency. Mulvaney can figure out how to make this work!

    We, the people, with our votes and our willingness to suffer ballot corruption, put Pelosi in charge of the House along with her extended family of idiots. Until we demand that all votes be cast at the polls, in person and with an ID on election day, we will have corrupt elections.

    The Democrats are not going to close the border and Mulvaney even says we can’t block the Rio Grand flood plains so the invaders can gain a foot hold no matter what we do. The Democrats are not going to change those laws. So we’re going to add another five to ten million invaders to our welfare system before we even have a long shot chance of defeating Pelosi in the polls.

    As usual, Mick does not fall for the trick – mincing words to advance their agenda – is not what Border Security entails – clearly, Mick sees what they do not see – not every Dim is in lock step with Pelousy – not every Dim takes orders from her – and the Dims have offered no solution to the problem – just semantics – migration is a global problem – even the UN is taking advantage of the crisis – Mick does not operate under the illusion there will be a solution – he states the facts – he presents the President’s position – and no matter what John Boy says – it is what it is – baiting an interviewee never works – allowing the enemy to talk his way into a hole does – Kudos, Mick!

He’s smart, well-spoken, very capable, pragmatic, and loyal to the People and to the President. President Trump has hired other good people too, but none of them match Mick Mulvaney.
