      Have stated before……The last thing the Uni-Party will agree to is a wall….
      A Wall would be the end for them….A wall would mean that the next step would be eliminating all the illegals…”still in America”.

      A Wall is their doom….

      I do believe the President will get the Wall….but he must be much tougher…there is no working with these people…….

      They will delay….delay…and delay………….just build it..

        Herein lies the reason that Candidate Trump knew he could run on this in the first place.

        The people would immediately understand that it means security. The UniParty knows that unless they have bodies in place, they can never win unless they can abuse illegals and take out citizens in one fell swoop.

        I think it’s worse than that, actually. UniParty does not want to solve the Illegal Immigration problem. But the Dems (and NeverTrumpeters) see The Wall as a political win for President Trump.

        Profits before America, and Politics before Safety.

    Any more updates on Ruth Bader Ginsburg? Latest oral arguments are scheduled to begin next Tuesday, February 19th. Would the Dems shut down the government again to prevent the vote on AG Nominee Barr and to avoid any questions on SCOTUS if RBG is still “working from home”?

        Trying to but I feel like no one is pushing this issue and it’s huge, IMHO! She has not, to my knowledge, actually been SEEN since she left the hospital in early December after cracking three ribs. There was a report from the SCOTUS spokesperson later that month about surgery to remove two cancerous nodes, but it did not give an actual surgery date or list the name of the surgeon. She was simply declared “cancer-free” at that point, which is ludicrous to anyone who has ever had a friend/relative with cancer.

        Since then, Chief Justice Roberts has announced that she is “recovering at home” and she is still casting votes, even though she is not physically present for oral arguments. The amount of power that this woman yields, as one of the nine people in charge of determining laws for our entire nation, is enormous and I think we have the right to ask if she is mentally capable of doing her job!

    What an amazing day. Never felt better about 2020 than today.

    The media is going to lie to you and say that Beto had 10,000-15,000 at his rally and this beat the Trump crowd size of like 11,000 total (outside and inside). Do not believe it. Here’s a photo of Beto’s rally compared to the outside overflow of Trump’s rally:

    They’re going to lie, just as they did about the size of Trump’s inauguration crowd.

    What’s most pathetic is that Beto cannot even draw in his own home town. At least Kamala got like 20,000 people in Oakland. No excuse for this debacle by Beto. If this is the best he and his team have, they won’t last long in the primaries.

        I watched a little of Beto and I thought maybe 1000..or less. There were more during his speech than at the mariachi band performance…they kinda filled in and compacted. The real tell was at the end when he stopped speaking. Everyone started leaving, and they didn’t have to wait, got thin very quickly. Small crowd.

        I think Brad probably nailed it. The MSM is only an order of magnitude off. I mean why not, how many are going to look at the side by sides of the Outside Trump crowd, with the whole Beto crowd?

        Fact check back at Mr John T. ‘Lying’ Bennett:

        President Trump stated in his speech (which I just got done watching and thus personally saw) that the place hold 8,000; but they allowed in 10,000, and that there were20,000+ outside watching big screens.

        He NEVER claimed he had 35,000 INSIDE. Never. Not once.

        I’m guessing one or several things happened here.

        1. Beto’s buddies in El Paso (his hometown) decided to ‘fudge’ the figures about his and Trump’s rally sizes.

        2. Beto’s team bused in a whole bunch of people for the event that got there a bit late (not around in early photos).

        Team Obama is notorious for working to get large crowds that are “fake.” They will bus people in, they will use famous music artists as warm-ups then pretend the crowd is there to see them, etc. They are expert at this.

        Beto is using some Team Obama people. One of the people who seems on board with Beto is Axelrod. He is notorious for his astroturfing (fake grassroots, including fake crowds).

        If and when Beto runs, then, expect a redux of the 2008 “Charismatic Obama” campaign. This means fake large crowds and an attempt at cult of personality. For Beto, that’s probably all he has to run on.

        Sadly, for him, he’s going against a guy who has decades of genuine celebrity. As well as an army of actual, entrenched supporters.

            Precisely. That is the Team Obama way. They are 100% flim-flam. I just realized, too, that there were at least 4 separate protesters at Trump’s rally tonight. I’m sure the Beto Bros were behind that, too.

            Team Obama has an incredibly limited playbook. But they’re good at executing that playbook. But it’s extremely obvious and ridiculous when you sit back and watch it.

    I must admit I’m very surprised about the “deal” (complete cave) reached by these congressmen. Wasn’t that basically what was in the original budget? Will Trump capitulate? Hope not. The best thing to do is declare a national emergency. That’s the only choice he’s got.

      I don’t agree Chris. I say take the $2B they supposedly are offering. Mulvaney stated on Sunday that the President has other options to secure additional wall funding, without declaring a National Emergency. The DOD and Pentagon backed this up. There are discretionary funds available that can be shifted to make up the difference. I don’t call it a capitulation when it can be done without shutting down the govt.

      The negotiations are a complete sham, and my friend in the House said everyone in Congress and the media know it.

      The Dems want to push the President into declaring a National Emergency so they can implement lawfare to indefinitely delay all work on the wall and POE restrictions/closures. Their strategy is entirely focused on obstruction and delay.

      Moreover, they think Mulvaney and the President are bluffing about taking billions of already appropriated funds from other projects to fund the wall.

      Desperation on the face of the Dems is an ugly sight. The President means what he says: “It will get built one way or another.”

      1) I believe the amount now offered for the wall is LESS than what was in the original bill Trump would not sign.

      2) He doesn’t “need” money approved when he has it from other sources.

      3) EVEN IF he has to go the route of doing the wall from other money sources, the govt still has to be opened. So if he has to go the other way, he will still need to sign something with no wall money.

      4) So when he does #3, Dems will scream he caved and they stood firm. Communications by Trump are key, and that is his strength.

      5) Really, what Dems give up in this process are several things: a) they lose, and Trump wins the hard way; b) in exchange for wall money they could pack in some Dem junk Trump would not like. With no wall money he / Reps have every incentive to strip junk out.

      Depends on whether they reduce the detention beds——- if he doesn’t lose those, I think he will sign it to take the 1.3 Billion for the wall, Then say that is not enough. That it is an emergency so he will ALSO use his presidential powers using the codes, he will move money from elsewhere to provide additional funds for more wall. That is not a declaration of emergency so I doubt it can be contested in court.

    Warren’s 2020 Smoke Signals

    Elizabeth Warren announced her intent to run for president in 2020.
    Does “Fauxahauntous” stand a chance?

    Warren lied about her racial status to gain attention and admittance to elite schools. She lied so long she may have started to believe it herself. She took a DNA test to prove she was part Indian, but her Indian genes proved vanishingly small.

    Warren is the racist and her very belated apology to the Cherokee Nation rings hollow.

    Warren also had the gall to accuse the president of making hateful, racist, ‘dark and ugly’ tweets while also hinting he might be in jail before 2020, due to ’serious’ investigations. It makes no matter to her that such investigations were based on lies paid for by Hillary Clinton.

    Warren drummed up the usual accusations of Trump ’trying to divide us,’ because the president wants a wall to protect Americans. Such attacks didn’t work for Hillary and they won’t work for Warren.

    Warren herself may “not be a free person” soon.

    Her smoke signals thus far are only communicating her weakness.

    Reports now are $1.375 Billion, basically what was offered 3 months ago. 55 miles of steel fencing.

    We have been offered 25% of what border agents were asking for. It’s difficult to call 55 miles of barriers a “down payment”.

    Out negotiated again, thrown off by their requested reduction in beds, which made the GOP freak out.

    Imagine only building 55 miles of your #1 campaign promise in 4 years.

    (BORDER OFFICIALS had requested about 200 miles of steel fencing – I think this was a MAJOR communication flaw of internal communication, and messaging for POTUS. POTUS wasn’t asking for $5.7 Billion, the border experts were asking for those additions.)

      2lbs of clothing per year? WOW! Seems like AOC has used up her allotted amount and then some. Girl has A LOT of new duds she is parading about in. Her white cape at the SOTU looked to be a pound and a half at least.

    Trump Heads to El Paso amid Stalled Wall Negotiations, Texas Lawmakers Propose State Wall Funding

    I think the idea is to give POTUS some money cor the wall, and then interfere with his spending it. I base this opinion on an answer to a letter I sent to Congressman Jimmy Panetta 20th District of California. He states in part (I paraphrase) that before the Southern border can be secured, there must be a proper analysis by experts and the local communities, which also involves environmental and eminent domain issues.
    I think we can also reasonably expect Governors of New Mexico and California to slow things down (eg CalOsha staking out job sites), and environmental groups, fat with Soros funds, to interfere where possible.

    So, we may see an emergency declared after POTUS extracts the maximum amount of funding

      DHS won in the 9th Circuit, yes, the ultra liberal 9th Circuit. Environmental waivers were granted as per the law passed under Obammy. Precedent now set?

        Suspicious Cat asked: Why was this particular obama Environmental waiver granted by the anti-Trump 9th Circuit? Was this a special request by someone? It seems very unusual. Whose property / territory benefits?

    It is amazing how much world press reporting there is on this!

    “A congressional aide, who asked not to be identified, said the outline of the deal included US$1.37 billion for erecting new fencing along the southern border. That is about the same amount Congress allocated last year and far below what Trump has demanded.”

    “Two other congressional sources said only currently deployed designs could be used for constructing 55 miles (90 km) of additional barriers. Those designs, which include “steel bollard” fencing, have been in use since before Trump became president.”

    The Wall/Barrier fight is not a standard, hard fought political battle to the Dems. It is a no holds barred Wartime Strategy! They are at war and if a thousand more Kate Steinles and Officer Ronil Singhs are killed by criminal illegal aliens, the Dems will simply dismiss them as collateral damage and totally ignore their deaths publicly. This is their favorite evasive tactic and the corrupt MSM are complicit in these deceptions. The women trapped into sex slavery and other horrors are faceless unknowns due to privacy concerns so they are easily dismissed as just a Trump/ICE fairy tale.

    If Mueller’s dream team and the corrupt elements in the Intel agencies, the FBI and the DoJ were unable to take down PDJT in the planned coup, they will continue badgering Trump but begin to focus more of their attentions on his supporters at every opportunity. (ie the “racist” MAGA hat, the Covington kids, etc) His supporters are now the key targets in this war, especially his loyal base, and the Dems are convinced that if they stop Trump from completing the wall, his base will finally abandon him and Ann Coulter will lead the mass exodus by further condemning P Trump publicly. She will visit her despicable pal Bill Maher again to begin her anti Trump tour.

    The Dems know that their inane, dangerous and reckless immigration policies will lose them some independent votes and a few Dems with active independent minds. But they are certain that if they continue to stop the wall construction, Trump will lose far more support in 2020 than them and they and their “dynamic” POTUS nominee will win back their lost voters.

      As in the last year when the signal was given to physically attack Trump supporters and the reports of violence spiraled upwards. Then it stopped. I assume it did so because they thought that attacks weren’t helpful to the cause.

    Apologies if this is already out there, but Jeff Carlson over at Epoch Tmes was putting together a few more nuggets for us which overlies Sundance’s revealing narrative of Spygate: the Saga.

    Seems like our virtuous FBI truth-and-justice machine manufactured that Page FISA application from the top down, by cranking out the “evidence” to support it after they had already decided they needed to build the supporting “data” on which to base their reasoning.

    Comey and Yates had this thing framed up long before Nellie and Bruce came along and slapped some siding onto it. And our friends Patty and Jim are happy to tell us how they did it.

    GOOD TIMES
