So apparently Trumps plan for paying for the wall, which of coarse isn't going to Mexico anymore, is to cut funding for the Coast Guard, TSA and FEMA.

So his plan to protect us from the scary Mexican's is to open up both other avenues in which actual terrorist and immigrants can get here and the agency responsible for emergencies if and when they happen here.

He keeps saying "No Illegals" yet takes money away from the Coast Guard who's job is to catch people coming here illegally by sea and to intercept drugs coming here by sea as well. Which he's also said he plans on stopping drugs from getting here too.

He also keeps talking about Terrorists coming here from the middle east and yet takes money away from the TSA.

This man is totally out of his mind and so is anyone thinking he knows what he's doing.

Anyone care to explain this with logic rather than just blind Trump loyalty for once???

They're also going after the CDC.

Apparently, their fiscal policy reference is "Mad Max."

It's like shutting the door to keep out thieves but opening up all the windows at the same time.

I mean, I never wanted a wall anyway. But for those who do what is your opinion on cutting the Coast Guard and TSA, two sources that lead to illegal immigrants and terrorists just to protect you from Mexicans. Most of which are coming here to work.

Where's the logic??

I don't get cutting the Coast Guard, but they can entirely eliminate the TSA and I'd stand up and cheer. TSA does nothing to protect America from outside threats... all they're there for is to condition Americans to being groped by some pervert with a badge. Defund the TSA and use that money on the wall.

Trump knows exactly what he's doing, he's just following his orders.

"Do and say stupid things all you want, as long as the media bashes you then your supporters will ignore all the lies you tell and bad decisions you make just because the media is reporting it."

I'm pretty sure that's how the plan was drawn up. Have a compulsive liar put into office then plant the seed in his follower's minds that the media is out to get him so that whenever the media points out his foolishness his supporters will ignore it and believe the opposite.

They've basically set it up to where no matter how much Trump lies his supporters will believe the media is lying about HIM lying so that they (his supporters) will rationalize his lies into "truth", all in spite of the media.

If the greatest threat to the United States is south of the border, why not take some of that proposed $54B gravy train for the military-industrial complex and build the wall.

Instead he's raping the Coast Guard?

Do you have a link for any of your claims or are you making things up?

Pretty much double-dipper jobs. Locals n Walmart do more than FEMA. TSA just wanna feel some T&A. Coast Guard is peculiar tho, especially if we have a wall, more might sail/swim around it? Maybe Trump doesn't want some wannabe Navy? No idea. Don't mind the first two gone, or even Homeland Security, but CG?

Are you expressing a "feeling" you have, mOjOm? I don't see any referenced source in your post.

Source: The Maritime Executive, 3/3/17

Trump's Budget Reduces Coast Guard Funding by $1.3 Billion


Roughly half of the administration’s proposed cuts come from canceling the funding for a ninth National Security Cutter (NSC), a vessel that the Coast Guard did not request; it was once described by then-director of the Office of Management and Budget Shaun Donovan as "unnecessary." It is currently in preproduction at Huntington Ingalls' Pascagoula, Mississippi shipyard.


And same source....


The administration's budget proposal also calls for the Coast Guard to eliminate its top counterterrorism unit, the Maritime Security Response Team, and all of its regional Maritime Safety and Security Teams. In addition to other duties, the Coast Guard small-boat units provide the waterborne security detail for Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach during presidential visits.

When midterm elections come up; he'll likely be impeached to strip away his power if not before then.

I was more curious about reducing the budget for coverage around Mar a Lago. Reading the comments below the cited source gave me a broader understanding of the original mission of the Coast Guard, and how it expanded since 9/11. Seems the budget cut is a move to consolidate the mission returning it back to search and rescue, and fishery management.

You cannot expect logic from an idiot.

The republicans will pick up enough seats to put them over 60 seats. The dems will get slaughtered at the mdterms.
