    Why The Wall Will Never Be Built

    Think for a minute. Democrats are opposing the wall and won't fund it. How the hell is it that the Republicans had control over ALL 3 branches of government for two years, and no wall was funded or built! WTF was going on for 2 years!!!!??????

    Why suddenly is it an issue? Well, it's because the Republicans don't want a wall built either! But now they can sit there and mouth off about wanting a wall and blame Democrats when it doesn't get done with a Democrat House.

    This is nothing but a charade. The Republicans KNEW they'd likely lose the House from the git-go. All they had to do is stall until they were no longer in control. And here we are.

    The same with getting rid of Obamacare. Two fucking years where they did virtually nothing.

    REPUBLICANS ARE THE REAL PROBLEM. VOTE THEM THE FUCK OUT OF OFFICE, AND WE CAN ALL RELAX ABOUT NOTHING GETTING DONE.

    I’m glad you understand that politics is Kabuki Theatre.


    We are sheep in the pen of Animal Farm. The Pigs dictate the terms. All is fair because the Pigs said so.
    If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. Samuel Adams

    The "PROBLEM" is that our "Elected" LEADEARS are 2 IGNORANT or PAID OFF..

    Another thing here is this "Polarization"..

    Agreed.

    The Republicunts are lying to us too.

    These scumbag politicians don't seem to understand what will happen, when the American people finally realize we're not in control.

    Yellow vests don't even begin to describe those events.

    The Deep State, right now, is asking for big-time trouble. And if they think they're going to suppress it with a little gunfire, they are badly and sadly mistaken.

    The rich business people of this world will never succeed in stripping rights from the Common Man. We've tried that, repeatedly, throughout history, and all you have to do is crack a history book to see what happens in that event.

    The dumbass globalists are setting themselves up for a world of hurt, but worse and more important than that, they're setting us up too, and that part is not acceptable.

    Yes, there will be a Slowdown in the global economy once people like me stop buying stuff. And right at this moment, I'm inclined to stop buying stuff. First of all, I'm not buying any more cheap Chinese bullshit. Secondly, I'm boycotting all the sponsors of the mainstream media, because they're completely full of shit and they're allowing their money to be used for destructive purposes. That includes companies like Coca-Cola, Kaiser Permanente, and AT&T.

    I need to see recognition and understanding by these companies, before I agree turn to buying their products. I will not buy their products as long as they're supporting the lies coming out of the mainstream media.

    Yes, there are dangerous and costly winds blowing, but I can predict the outcome right now. At the end of the day, after a lot of pain and suffering and misery, We the People will win, and those like Bill Clinton who consider themselves better than the rest of us, will lose. People like Ed Buck will be dragged out in the middle of the street, drawn and quartered, and left for the maggots. This is the reality those scumbag globalists are preparing for us, and all I can say is, they're going first before I am.

    How the wall will get built. The president declares an emergency. It will got to the Supreme Court. If Roberts, Gorusch, Alito, and Kavanaugh try to pull a Youngstown Sheet and Tube v Sawyer, they need to be impeached.

    Who are you going to replace the Republicans with? Democrats?


    The problem is, Trump isn't really a Republican, but he's sure as hell not a Democrat!

    And we don't have an Candidates of Trump's mold to run for Congress!

    Trump Style Congressional Candidates is Exactly what America Needs.

    And Trump Style employees for the head of the CIA, FBI, NSA, FAA, FCC, .....

    But!, People of Trump Character are so rare, as to make such a solution utterly impossible.

    I appreciate what you're saying here, but it is NOT an Option.

    Instead, We-the-People, must insist our lower politicians accept and follow President Trump's leadership.

    In the end, the failure, is OURS!

    The Democrats had both houses of Congress and the presidency when President Clinton went into office. As I recall, he wanted a ridiculous tax increase that Congress rejected. When President Obama went into office he got almost a trillion dollars to play with but the Democrat-controlled Congress would not totally destroy U.S. healthcare for him. The damaged it severely and damaged themselves at the same time.

    The OP isn't aware of reality. When President Trump went into office he did not have the support or backing from all of the Republicans in Congress. Congress would not repeal Obamacare or have built a border wall. I do not think that what has been done is insignificant coming on the heels of a president who seems to hate America and Americans.

    I doubt an unbroken wall across the southern border can be built even if President Trump uses "emergency powers".

    "I doubt an unbroken wall across the southern border can be built even if President Trump uses "emergency powers"."

    Why?


    Don't you think he has the legal grounds to prevail in a challenge of his authority to have the military build it or what?




    EDIT: Okay, I re-read your sentence and the word UNBROKEN stands out.

    He has not insisted on an unbroken wall.

    Why would you say an unbroken wall when that isn't his stated idea?

    Do you have better info than this from Time Magazine online of April 18, 2017?

    Given some of DHS Secretary John Kelly’s own statements, the Democrats’ estimation may be too high. Kelly testified in April that the wall will consist of barriers placed at strategic locations, rather than an unbroken span stretching “from sea to shining sea.” Kelly has also said a wall alone will not be enough to deter illegal immigration. “It has to be a layered defense,” Kelly said at his confirmation hearing.

    The report’s release comes as Trump’s proposed border wall prepares to take center stage in a fractured Congress next week. With a deadline to fund the government on the horizon, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has warned Republicans not to include wall funding in the upcoming must-pass spending bill.

    Everyone talks about 2 years and the wall isn't built. 2 years and healthcare isn't fixed. 2 years is not a hell of a lot of time to tackle ALL the many problems created in the past few decades and extensive havoc caused in the 8 years prior to his presidency.
    The tax cuts and Military funding are 2 large issues he also promised to tackle along with border security and healthcare and reducing the deficit. Had he accomplished any two of these big issues, then everyone would be griping that he had 2 years and didn't do the other 3. So yes, I'm a gripper about not getting ACA repealed, but along with his 2 big accomplishments that he promised, he also accomplished a small step in dismantling ACA with the individual mandate gone. Then other smaller but important promises kept and accomplished, like moving the embassy to Jerusalem and increasing health care options for the vets. And considering the Anti-American Democrat, deep state Republican, and globalist obstruction that is working against Trump and the best interest of our country, along with the Anti-American media manipulating public opinion by lying and pounding on false moral outrage, he's done a pretty damn good job and accomplished a hell of a lot in those measly 2 years.



    So 2 years? Please, lets be realistic. Certainly no one on this forum expected that any president up against all this obstruction with so many large issues to take on could have accomplished it all in those ever so "lenghty?" 2 years. Sorry, but when I hear, he had 2 year and ... wasn't done, it just sounds asinine.

    Oh, and I almost forgot, "dismantling ISIS". That's a biggy.
    *Pulled out of Iran deal. Promise kept!
    *Working on trade deals with success in some, while still working on others.
    *Got other countries to pay more of their share.
