    Disagree. You’re wrong Senator. The Demonrats have some awful stuff in there. The President shouldn’t leave the decision on the wall to mayors, city councils and other politicians with agendas. Don’t do it Mr. President!!

    Graham is a hard one to read. Sometimes I think he’s on our side and sometimes it’s darned hard to tell. One thing I feel sure about-you’ll be seeing Graham 2024 bumper stickers someday.

      I’ll give you a hint from a South Carolinian who’s been keeping an eye on Graham for a good several years. Lindsey Graham is for Lindsey Graham first, foremost, and always. He’s a rat but he’s anything but stupid. He’ll cozy up to whoever can help him most – money, power, whatever – he recognizes a winner when he sees one but likes to hedge his bets.

    The bill reportedly has a poison pill that allow small town mayors to veto and prevent the government from building walls in their towns. If true, Trump should tell them all to pound sand and declare a national emergency.

      Disagree.
      Emergency declaration, yes.
      But no challenges to “pound sand”.
      There are ranchers, mayors, landowners in the mix who would wlecome a wall. Add the limited miles we can to their local stretch of border first. If you believe walls work, let these folks have their sections of wall and demonstrate by example how it has helped them manage border crossings better in their neck of the woods.

      The funding in this bill for barriers relates to 50+ miles in the Rio Grande Valley. Within those few miles you could easily determine which mayor, city government or private citizen would be objectionable to building a barrier. Next step: Move the barrier inland from those objecting and make their citizens have to enter and exit the barrier from the Mexican side. See how fast those locally elected officials change their minds!

    Time to move on. take the deal. Where there is Lawfare, just call out the politicians and let the locals deal with the entity that brings it. Save the money until cleared. Dont create any optics,
    Dont be fooled that Trump’s base will abandoned him over the wall. Abandoned to WHERE? there is no other option.

    He sure is a snake in the grass;

    going on national television encouraging the President to sign a bill [all the while, and IF the stories are true that the bill contains provision for mayors and municipalities to over-ride a President’s authority to protect the nation, as well as knowing that this POTUS takes his responsibility to preserve, protect and defend this nation extremely seriously and so must veto any bill that has provisions that diminishes a President’s authority to carry out his duties]

    Graham must think he himself is going to come out looking like the calm headed on. What a snake.

    Graham is saying “take 1/4 of what you asked for and move on”. Missing is any explication of what else is in the legislation. The fact that it is kept hidden tells me it’s toxic.

    The only worthwhile thing Graham noted is that last year’s appropriation bill and the defense budget makes available to the president a total of $4.8 billion. Leave the battle for the remaining $900 million for next year and tell Pelosi et al to get lost.

      What???? Manure legislation. A disaster!!

      DID YOU FOLKS READ THIS???

      The Hill: “A Congressional Democratic aide said ***the funding bill would only allow the administration to use “existing technologies” for fencing and barriers. The legislation specifies that the barrier funding would have to be “pedestrian fencing” or “levee pedestrian fencing”*** in the Rio Grande Valley Sector.”

        I think Graham is of two minds. He is conflicted, trying to serve two masters.
        One the one hand, he faces the same problem _ALL_ in Congress must deal with: campaign financing. You can’t get to or stay in office without money and the bulk of dollars out there wants open borders.- True, we have seen victories where the opposition massively outspent. And we will see more of them. But that doesn’t change current realities where money and politics are concerned.
        On the other hand, Graham has shown support for President Trump when it really counted. His umbrage during Kavanaugh’s trial-by-fire was genuine.
        Yes there’s a time to dig your heels in. But there’s also a time to run away and live to fight another day.
        Signing this bill won’t truly be “running away”. It’s just an escape from another “Half-Nelson”… and it will garner some “down payment”, allow us to fight another day. And another. And another. Until either the Uniparty/Swamp kills Trump or we voters drain Swamp creatures in 2020.

    My question of this deal is if does contain the bs to give mayors of border
    Communities to get the authority to veto construction for a wall/barrier??
    What good would the 1.4 billion do?
    Most of the Laredo/ Rio Grande look to be Democrat , which is where the highest percentage of illegal crossings
    are. So even if PDJT signs the deal
    An an uses his authority with the “284”
    Statute to get more funding together,
    Would he have to fight against a stack
    Of vetos? Am I misunderstanding the poison of that pill?

    I do not find it normal for any mayor
    To be able overpower our commander an chief On NATIONAL SECURITY !!
    Really?? First is one district judge that makes a decision for security for our whole country an now a mayor too!
    That is something to wake everyone up!

    Oh an Lindsey Graham is phoney!
    He has his weeble wobble walk down
    Pat! Why don’t he open his mouth like he did at the Kavanaugh hearing! After decades of not doing their job in the House an Senate on immigration reform
    He has the nerve to say to PDJT to sign
    This bill ! An I also read they put more funding for the care for illegal immigrants !
    Ok sign the bill an go the “284”
    Authorization route an use the
    Presidential power to shut the border
    Down till it goes to the Supreme Court !

    POTUS is in a tough spot, and the Big Club knows it. We’re still in the middle of tax season and a shutdown is going to piss off a lot of people when tax returns aren’t processed. $1.6B will hold him over until the next round in September. The bigger issue here is that we’re still getting CR’s instead of a real budget. I think he should start making the case now that a real budget is put on the table in September or the Govt shuts down again.

    That said, he has 6 months to aggressively go on offense and put pressure on Congress to get off its collective behind and do its job. A few indictments may get these folks to come around and start funding his agenda. Enough preparing the battlefield and waiting for IG reports that go nowhere. Perhaps even go so far as to put pressure on McConnell’s communist Chinese sister-in-law via President Xi. That would very likely get McConnell’s attention.

      So true Paula. Responsible leadership would have taken care of this problem decades ago. Like by the early 80s, when it became obvious it was a serious issue. The repugs had the House and Senate for the past two years. Blame Ryan, McConnell and all of the other GOPe traitors. Lindsey Graham in good standing with the traitor wing of the party.

      The problem is either going to be solved, at least in large part, or we will cease to be a nation. It is the number one issue and the most deadly to the future.

    Lindsey Graham is a dedicated Swamp creature. There is no Lindsey 2.0, there is just the same ol’. Why this snake has suddenly picked up this weird cachet is beyond me. He is what he’s always been. The Bushie Kavanaugh was and is the Swamp paymasters’ choice all along, and Graham goes where the money is, first and always. Why would he get “credit” for doing what he’s always done?

    The Swamp wanted Kavanaugh. McConnell wanted Kavanaugh. The CoC wanted Kavanaugh. The neocon/neolibs wanted Kavanaugh. Forget the butthurt resistance and nevertrumper crowd, they don’t matter nearly as much as the paymasters’ cash. If anything, this should demonstrate what the Swamp is truly about, not that Graham has suddenly become our savior.

    I like Trump seducing Graham, that’s just smart politics. But he’s clever enough to understand this snake will sell him out in a heartbeat, on the border and anything else his paymasters want.

He must stand his ground in this battle. The bill’s $1.53B with the restrictions on the wall is a pathetic joke and giant win for Nancy. After this long battle he CANNOT accept this.

    Please someone call Grahams office and tell that person in the nicest of terms to get the hell away from the President because with Friends like him and Kushner he does not need any more enemies The three weeks and this bill only proves once more that if he signs this he will be hurt big time. and I am not talking about people moving away from Pt but you and I both know He should not sign this bill This piece of trash gives millions over what the President asked for to every one but him and the border people and this will also takes away his right to kill off programs that don’t work anymore and just throws good money after bad..

    Please everyone tell the President not to sign this bill to veto it or just do a line by line veto and
