So we have the United States being run by right-wing fanatics who control Donald Trump. He was ready to sign the bill that was unanimously voted by the US Senate when the fanatics from the right-wing who knew they could influence the weak minded Donald Trump started crying and complaining on their media outlets.

Trump caved in and now we have thousands of workers who will have a very hard Christmas.



"Trump gets nothing and the Democrats get everything," fumed Rush Limbaugh on his radio show as news of the deal broke. Ann Coulter vowed to withhold her support from the president's 2020 campaign if he couldn't deliver on the wall. “They’re about to have a country where no Republican will ever be elected president again,” she told The Daily Caller. “Trump will just have been a joke presidency who scammed the American people and amused the populists for a while, but he’ll have no legacy whatsoever." (He unfollowed her on Twitter shortly thereafter.) On Fox & Friends—still the most influential voice in the White House—an outraged Steve Doocy declared victory for Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. "I’m not going to sugarcoat it. I’m not going to spin it," said his guest, Michelle Malkin. "I wish I could, but I can’t. This is a cave."

Trump does not need congressional funding for the wall. Border security is of nationalistic defense. All trump has to do is declare it defense necessary. Trump gets the funding for the wall immediately.

The wall, for Trump, is all about political posturing.

So basically the "OP" can not survive without the "government"? And only "left wing fanatics" can make the US. Livable?

Just so everyone knows, funding for a boarder wall was/is already the "law". It was "made law" before Pres. D. Trump was ever President. The failure was at the funding level, by congress and Senate. It has been a "law" for years before Pres. Trump came into office.
Tipical of the socialist left/democrats to throw it on Pres. Trump for their inability to follow the "law" that they helped make.

He's impotent... Mueller leading the biggest white collar crime investigation probably in our history and things not looking so good. The man is in full blown panic mode. Staff quitting... losing support from his party...every week another problem...
The shut down.... makes him feel powerful again.
Pulling troops out of Syria ...makes him feel powerful again.

Cant say I disagree with Ann... except for the past tense she uses and the present tense that I use.

I just have to ask....

Trump said he would veto any spending bill that did not have wall funding in it... last spending bill he signed, then reiterated that last week.

Trump wasn't even given a bill TO veto yesterday.

SoOo... Trump caved how exactly?

Listen to all the deceived ones with their head in the sand.

Your side just got walloped in an election and Trump has made it worse.


You have lost people


The stock market is as bad as 2008. The international situation is as bad as ever, trade isn't working and you still like blind mice stick to the knave Trump.

He will lead you to one place:


HELL!

All I see here is emotion based, incorrect hyperbole.

You are absolutely right. As C.N.C. he can use the funding for the U.S. Army for "defence" at his leisure. It is not "legal", "rocket science" as the democrats/socialist would like anyone to believe. Our "laws" are so simple, that only the most "educated" would believe, you need a lawyer to figure out. It is very simple. The Army gets funded every 4 years for "defence". The Navy/Marines are no real threat to liberty, so they only get funding, every 2 years. A "wall" is perfectly acceptable to the "legal" term of defence. ... Not sure where the commie American's are going with this. No country ever lost sovereignty over a Navy, Air force, or Marines... Only an Army can do that. If Pres. Trump wants to use some "corp of engineering" funding to slap up "a wall"? It is in his "authority" to do so... God bless The President!

Everything Trump touches turns to crap.

His immigration hoax has come apart along with everything Trump touches!

Look at the stock market…he is responsible. It’s his Fed chief; it’s his foreign policy and trade policies and his domestic mass confusion that has sent the stock market into oblivion

All because Rush Limbaugh and Anne Coulter commanded he start a government shut down

We have a *president* who values Ann Coulter's opinion over the Sec. of Defense.

God help us.

It's additionally disturbing that a "government shutdown" has become just another tool in his bag of crooked tricks.
Shutting the government is not something to be taken lightly because it negatively affects so many people.

This is the third time in two years? I wonder how many of those government employees will support him in 2020.
(If he's still in office by then, which I doubt.]

You have only ONE star that Silly gave you at the time of this post.

Your emotionally driven thread doesn't work anymore and only a fool believes that ridiculous context ATS unfortunately have to put up with as a form of wasted memory.

This has got to be one of the most pathetic explanations ever, but are we honestly surprised by this, considering the OP?

Smh 😗
