Shutting down government

Ann reiterates... build the bloody wall already!
Fake News' question of the week: Will Trump risk a government shutdown over the wall? 

The media flip back and forth on who's to blame for a government shutdown depending on which branch is controlled by Republicans. But the "shutdown" hypothetical in this case is a trick question.

A failure to build the wall IS a government shutdown. 

Of course it would be unfortunate if schoolchildren couldn't visit national parks and welfare checks didn't get mailed on time. But arranging White House tours isn't the primary function of the government.

The government's No. 1 job is to protect the nation.

This has always been true, but it's especially important at this moment in history, when we have drugs, gang members, diseases and terrorists pouring across our border. The failure of the government to close our border is the definition of a government shutdown.

This isn't like other shutdowns. Democrats can't wail about Republicans cutting Social Security or school lunches. They are willing to shut the government down because they don't want borders.

Take that to the country!

As commander in chief, Trump doesn't need Congress to build a wall. The Constitution charges him with defending the nation. Contrary to what you may have heard from various warmongers on TV and in Trump's Cabinet, that means defending our borders -- not Ukraine's borders.
It's not that hard.

  1. Build the wall.
  2. Drain the swamp.
If it's truly necessary to fight a war with North Korea, so be it, but don't let a little thing like nuclear war get in the way of the primary national interests. And if the swamp is excessively resistant, well, just park the USS Carl Vinson in Chesapeake Bay.

I'm not American, so no doubt missing some of the nuances and whatnot, but I'm suprised the Wall is even being seriously questioned by people on the Right.

President Trump went all over the country telling customers he will build a wall. His presidency will be dead in the water and his reputation destroyed forever - both as a politician and as a real estate magnate - if he doesn't build the wall.

So I expect he'll build a wall.

Maybe not this week, but soon. I'd be astounded if it turned out he risked his name, his fortune, possibly his very life, just to become President Jeb. If he wanted Jebism, it'd have been a lot easier and less dangerous to him and his family to just give Jeb money during the primaries.

As a 70 year old billionaire celebrity with a supermodel wife, a young son and adorable grandkids, he had far more pleasant options available than being spat on for nearly 2 years straight, relentlessly slandered, spied on, and forced to live under constant armed guard while the media incited every loony in America to "do something" about this "Hitler", all just to take a pay cut as POTUS.

Doesn't make sense if he wasn't planning to deliver on his big ticket promises - and the Wall is his most important and tangible promise. He understood the value of that physical symbol, or he wouldn't have banged on about it at every rally.

And it's not as if Trump has isolated himself from his audience and retreated to the Washington DC bubble. He did a rally just last week. Were they chanting "Build The Wall"? I bet they were. I bet he was listening intently.

And - remember when Ann Coulter became vocally upset during the campaign over the possibility Trump might cuck out on immigration?

I understand the anxiety, similar stuff bubbled up in Britain after we voted to leave the EU. Folks on the Right who'd been so used to losing for so long they started to frighten themselves about Brexit betrayals and whatnot on the basis of... not very much.

But maybe freaking out at every little cuck-conspired roadblock or off-the-cuff verbiage from Trump isn't good for MAGA. Maybe going after the spineless republican congressmen who want to continue with the same old same old is a better use of rhetorical ammo and emotional grenades.

That's my tuppence anyway. I'd gladly trade you American chappies and she-chaps President Trump for Prime Minister May.

If we have enough armed guards on the border, we really don't need a wall. If we bring our troops back from the sandbox, Europe, Korea, et cetera, we could have more than enough boots on the ground to let us wait a little while on The Wall.

We are going to have to guard the wall anyway, or it's just another speed bump.

Exactly. Who appropriated the money for Obamnesty? If the wall has cameras and other sensors, doesn't it serve a vital intelligence function? I hear the funds for the CIA and the 16 or so related agencies aren't always clearly accounted for. Seems like it might be helping the DEA, too. It pretty clearly serves a national defense role, too. DoD gets a shekel or two from the taxpayer. What's the Corps of Engineers doing these days?

YES! We need to keep the pressure on Trump, of course - there's no downside to that. Trump wants to deliver, and if we're clamoring for him to deliver, that's ammunition for him to blast Congress with.

We must first and foremost pressure Congress. I'm thinking that the best way to pressure them is to start picking out and pushing and _funding_ contenders for the 2018 (R) primaries.

With each passing day we get more evidence and proof that there really is a Uniparty, and it's all been just fundraising theater for the last 50 years. The constitution is dead, as neither the Ds nor the Rs revere it, or abide by it.
While Trump as commander-in-chief does indeed have the right and power to declare the lack of a wall a clear and present danger, and to further declare that building it via executive order (or whatever) is necessary to ensure the safety of American citizens, I can see now that the Uniparty will declare Trump unstable and follow Maxine Waters lead, call for Trump's impeachment. THEY WILL NOT ALLOW THE WILL OF FREE PEOPLE TO TRIUMPH OVER THE GLOBALIST BANKING CABAL.

I think it's a matter of scale, combined with present media flooding our minds with diverse angles, that determines how people are driven to action.

Take a small community back in 1948 which just saw some horrible atrocity by an outsider. This event would stick in people's minds forever and action would likely be swift and severe.

Fast forward to today and most people forget why we need strict border and immigration controls. Not sure about you, but I could name about twenty jihad events that keep my resolve. The average blue piller, on the other hand, soon gets brought into new drama.

So if Trump's wavering before congress is a reflection of this period I describe, we truly are going down the tube. See you on the other side, maybe.

I think what you and others are saying is: militarize the border, and deal with the influx as one would deal with an invasion. Once this happens either more effective military measures will be employed, or congress will call for demilitarization at the price of funding the wall.

Ugggh. First link is with rabbi freakin Scmhuley, who warned against the Mel Gibson movie The Passion of the Christ (before even seeing it) because it would trigger so much hate against the Jews, as Christians always do, when they (you know) get all worked up.

Here he is saying the Gospels got it all wrong, and of course "discerning minds" reject the Gospel of Matthew:

"This scene is based on Matthew 27:22: "Pilate said to [the Jews], 'Then what shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?' They all said, 'Let him be crucified.' And he said, 'Why, what evil has he done?' But they shouted all the more, 'Let him be crucified.' So when Pilate saw that he was gaining nothing, but rather that a riot was beginning, he took water and washed his hands before the crowd, saying, 'I am innocent of this man's blood; see to it yourselves.' And all the people answered, 'His blood be on us and on our children.'"

How plausible does this scene appear to the discerning mind?"

The the hysteria of Jewish punditry about the Gibson movie was just totally neurotic. But more importantly, Acts 28 demonstrates that they had a chance to repent, and did not. That is the more important set of circumstances. They don't want to focus on that now, do they.

No one knows anymore what "draining the swamp" means. It used to mean get the establishment out. But Trump keeps bringing them in.

Trump is going to have to get the wall built with 60 votes in the senate. That ain't gonna happen. The only chance he's got is to get members of the GOP elected to currently held Dem seats. That ain't gonna happen either.

Hell, Trump can't even get the ACA removed they've been working on that for 8 years.

Doesn't make sense if he wasn't planning to deliver on his big ticket promises - and the Wall is his most important and tangible promise.

Exactly. And it's not like there was a Wall bandwagon already going by, and he reluctantly got on board. He made it the #1 issue, by choice, even though all the smart money said he couldn't get elected with it, it was too racist, too extreme, etc. He could have been more moderate, simply talked about deporting illegals and tightening up enforcement, and been well to the right of the pack. He went out on a limb about the Wall because he wants to build the Wall.

That doesn't mean the entire establishment (and even some of his own people) won't try to stop him. Of course they will. We knew that. But I've been hearing for years from immigration patriots that the funding and authority are already in place, which is how we know Bush/Obama were traitors -- they didn't use what the law already said they should be using. If they try to take that authority and funding away from him now, he can club them upside the head with that. I know he probably would prefer to win them over with negotiation than strong-arm them, but I think there's limited room to negotiate with the GOP cucks on this. Open borders are just too important to them. Just as during the campaign, any pretense they make toward getting on board the Train will be just that -- they'll be stabbing him in the back with one hand while they're shaking on a deal with the other. He's going to have to steamroll them. It'll be interesting to see how he does it, because I think he has options. There are a few ways he can fund it and just start building, leaving it to them to either get on board or come out openly for illegals.

A shutdown is just one option, though it's probably my favorite. Been hoping for one of those ever since Bush flinched on the tax increase back in what, 1991?

Blogger Jourdan May 02, 2017 10:28 PM  

I caught a lot of grief online during the election campaign when I tempered my hopes for Trump with the knowledge, looking at things from inside USG, that he and his people were giving clear signs that they did not know what they were up against and lacked the resolve and the willingness to take the radical steps that would be necessary for any President to truly bring the beast to heel.

I took that grief, because me, of all people--a Californian who loves his home and his state and has seen it lost in his lifetime--knows not to be hard on good people when they let their hopes blind them to obvious facts. At times, I even did so myself.

So, I really never even defended what I was saying beyond taking a few steps to explain my thinking.

Now, though. Well, I think people on our side are starting to see it for what it is.

We're not going to win by the ballot box. The only way the ballot box will even play a role in our eventual victory would be in a European-American version of the Sinn Fein/PIRA "ballot box and Armalite" strategy.

No, we're going to have to fight.

And I have a good feeling that President Trump and his enemies both are busily constructing a new, revolutionary cadre that they don't understand, can't see, and are building without knowing what they are doing.

It is there that I find my hope.

In October 1995, Congress adopted the Jerusalem Embassy Relocation Act, noting that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and that the U.S. Embassy should be moved there from Tel Aviv no later than May 31, 1999.

The Act also included a stipulation allowing the President to issue a waiver every six months to keep the embassy in Tel Aviv if he determines such is necessary to protect the national security interests of the United States.

Since 1999, each President - Clinton, Bush and Obama - has used the waiver to suspend the relocation of the Embassy at six month intervals, a copy of which is presented below. President Obama renewed the waiver most recently, on June 1, 2016.


So it must have been waived again Dec. 1. On June 1, we should see whether there is some supernatural guidance to this shit show or not. At least that is my metric, although I guess Dec 1 would work too, technically.

The solution seems painfully obvious to me, I'm not sure why I'm not hearing anyone else saying it.

The defense budget got a 21 BILLION dollars increase.

The purpose of the wall is DEFENSE.

Have the freaking military BUILD IT. They have the engineers. They have the equipment. they have the manpower. The budget will get rerouted inside the military system like it does with every freaking thing. This makes about 80% of the associated red tape and wheeling and dealing disappear. Sure, it will be about twice as expensive than using private sector contractors properly, but it WILL get done.

If nuclear war kicks off, 3 billion will die immediately, 2 billion on top of that later, of secondary effects. And that's only if the exchange is limited to the Northern Hemisphere. The situation is incredibly dangerous, there is no objective reason for the saber rattling. We do NOT have superiority over of the Russian and if China makes common cause, we are all dead in the U.S., Israel will be wiped off the map and on the basis of the odds, the Vatican will go as well to take out the Jesuits. Just saying....

"We do NOT have superiority over of the Russian and if China makes common cause, we are all dead in the U.S...."

Russia cannot live comfortably without European capital and cash. China cannot live comfortably without US capital and cash. They will not kick off a nuclear exchange on behalf of North Korea because the elites of both polities are strictly self-serving and nationalist.

There is absolutely no reason for them to sacrifice half their own population, most of their own free capital, 2/3rds of their GDP and in all likelihood the legitimacy of their ruling class, when they could instead make a show of loudly condemning Un and then either walking away or, more profitably yet, supporting the US in return for major concessions in trade, or even the opportunity to loot NK's resources (via, of course, tendered rebuilding contracts that just happen to be far better for them than for NK).

I'm ready to give him some time to adjust to being president.

Am I disappointed with the flaky neocon jabber from some of his appointments? Of course.

But it's just too early to tell if he's given in or merely retreated. Time will tell. For better or worse he is the president.

If he's going to die in a ditch for something, it ought to be for one of his major planks;

-the Wall
-the budget
-the military adventurism

These are not unrelated matters, as anyone who knows the saying "Invade the world, invite the world" also knows.

Guys, you haven't read the "Art of the deal" so you don't understand that our Lord and savior, the God Emperor, is one step ahead of all of us. Secondly, giving the Democrats what they want and reneging on his promises is just another example of trump playing 64d underwater basket weaving super Galactic chess

Why is it that people cannot read? The Constitution makes the President Command in Chief ----- OF THE ARMY AND THE NAVY, and the Militia when called into duty by the feds, NOTHING ELSE. As per the Constitution, the Congress makes all the RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR GOVERNING THE ARMY AND THE NAVY, NOT THE PRESIDENT. The Congress is the ONLY federal branch ALLOWED TO DECLARE/START/CAUSE war to happen, NOT THE PRESIDENT. The Congress is in charge of all funds and deciding where they are spent, NOT THE PRESIDENT. The President IS NOT the commander in chief of the whole Union, of the states, of the people. He cannot constitutionally do anything not granted and he is not constitutionally allowed to NOT follow the law. If one supports the President doing what is not granted then one is not law abiding and has no room to complain about violations of the Constitution. The Constitution is not a buffet.

@30 " I can see now that the Uniparty will declare Trump unstable and follow Maxine Waters lead, call for Trump's impeachment. THEY WILL NOT ALLOW THE WILL OF FREE PEOPLE TO TRIUMPH OVER THE GLOBALIST BANKING CABAL.
And this is how Civil War 2.0 kicks off. "

Are you objecting or preparing? The Uniparty better 'test' the populace, because -- out here? -- we're armed and getting furious -- AT THEM!

No one is 'taking out' Waters because no one -- not even her alleged allies -- takes her as serious at all. She's the disgusting traitorous equivalent of the God Emperor's: 'start the negotiation with hyperbole and over-reach, and negotiate down to what you actually are willing to accept.' SHE is insane (or dumber than poop!), and no one thinks there is any there there! BUT she makes the barely, slightly, hardly LESS insane group that is the Demoncrat party look not quite AS insane!
