The stench of soiled monkeys and jackals fill the air. Peeew. Way past time to clean out Congress. Much of that smell would go with them.

If the "resistance" ever does manage to take out Trump, it won't be by any stoopid strategy of this magnitude.

The Prez wins this one easily.
Yea... Thats what I'm seeing too....!

Dude, he's gonna light her senile ass up... I can't wait! Every time the democrats think they FINALLY got one over Trump, it backfires in their faces. Nancy will be left standing there making that face she made when she had a turd stuck in it, or whatever that was.



Just makes old 'Skull-Face' Pelosi look desperate, childish and petty.
Which, of course, she IS.




Makes me chortle every time I see it, that one is the best! LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!

Sorry, but word on the street is that Trump has cashed his final (bad) check....

Nancy Pelosi Is Winning

Trump, like Bush, has picked a fight that is popular with conservatives but unpopular with the public at large. Most Americans don’t think there’s a border crisis, don’t support a border wall, and blame Trump for the shutdown. As a result, Republican members of Congress are under more political pressure to back down than their Democratic counterparts, and the longer the shutdown continues, the more that pressure should grow. For the time being, at least, conservative opposition has forced Trump to shelve talk of declaring a national emergency. All of which means that the most likely outcome to the current standoff is that Trump caves. And since the wall was Trump’s signature campaign promise, such a retreat could depress conservative enthusiasm and impair his chances in 2020. “If he gives in,” Lindsey Graham recently warned, “that’s probably the end of his presidency.”

Oh, you forgot Owning Donald Trump!

In the halls of Congress this afternoon, Pelosi told reporters Trump can deliver his speech from the Oval Office if he wants. More to the point, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer declared “The State Of The Union Is Off.”

I don't think the public gives to buckets of hamster piss if the SOTU is held in the halls of congress or at the local baseball stadium.

The Democrats have far more to lose than the President when it comes to this.... he can give the SOTU without them. This means they have no ability to show disagreement to the cameras by not standing / clapping, etc. In addiiton, they look like class A hypocrites if they then try to give the traditional response since they didn't want him to hold it in the first place.

The President controls the optics on this one and them even suggesting he not hold the SOTU shows they are getting desperate.


He 100% WILL be holding the State if the Union address.
The State of the Union address is not ‘off’

This plays straight into the President’s hands and as per usual, he wins yet another round.

This years State of the Union will now be the most watched of all time and the dEmocrats aren’t even going to be there.

And this clown of an OP thinks cNn won’t be there to air it, live. They will. Media is a competition. Why would they want to miss out?

You’re right, they have more to lose and they have no way to respond.
‘Desperation’ doesn’t even begin to describe it

They’ve just played themselves, again. Now they’re about to be ‘owned’


Schumer and Pelosi basically forgot the SOTU is coming up and realized that the President will have 45 minutes or so to literally just eviscerate he Democrats in front of the country. They painted themselves into a corner. This is why they are now trying to figure out how to keep him from giving it.

They have two choices. They can cave and give him the money OR they can hold out and he can give the SOTU and suffer the blowback.

Why else would they even bother sending him this letter if they weren't so concerned about what he could say at the SOTU?

Enjoy!


And then Trump plays his 4D chess move when he asked to do the State of the Union Address at the Senate instead to not over tax the security that Peloci suggests would be the case at the House, and of course the Senate has said the security would not be an issue there...

Check...

That is not a "State of the Union." It is and Address to the Senate.


It's an address to this country on the state of America, given from the Senate Chamber.


Not quite: The formal basis for the State of the Union Address is from the U.S. Constitution: The President “shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.” Article II, Section 3, Clause 1.

That word "Congress" in there means the Senate and The House.

So now you know!

Leaning is fun!


So, he broadcasts it simultaneously to both the in-house Congressional network (i.e. streaming it) which is sending the information to Congress, as well as to the American People over the public airwaves. It does NOT say it MUST be in the House Chambers, does it? It only states the information must be sent to Congress.

This the "Information Age", so if done electronically, on the internal network, it adheres to the letter of the law.

Too bad for you sparky...

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN

Trump strikes back at Pelosi
The president is so far staying uncharacteristically silent after Pelosi's State of the Union power play.

By ANDREW RESTUCCIA 01/17/2019 12:09 PM EST Updated 01/17/2019 02:20 PM EST

Updated, 2:20 p.m.: President Donald Trump hit back at Speaker Nancy Pelosi a day after she asked to reschedule his State of the Union address, saying a trip she planned to make to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan has been postponed.

"We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over," he said in a letter to Pelosi.

Tit for Tat, Punch Counter-punch. Only Trump could play this game.

As a vet of Iraq and Afghanistan and current active duty:

I don't fault anyone for avoiding Vietnam.
It was an illegal war based on an actual admitted false flag.


That is why I'm surprised by FilthyUSMonkey saying they were a vet as the vast majority of vets have your attitude. It is the non-vet that knows nothing about the military that screams the loudest about whether a person was in the service or not.


They're just doing as commanded.

Can Trump even draw a crowd anymore? During his "National Address" Chuck and Nancy got better ratings than he did. 100K?

Don't think so.



Sure he can... Just not you. YOU are not the only voice out there. Whether you want to believe it or not, Trump has a VERY strong following, despite what you read in you liberal news. You know... The Kool Aid Daily Gathering.

Think about it. ATS isn't a liberal or conservative site, yet on random issues, ATS is pretty much divided down the middle. More often, it leans a bit more Trump than Anti-Trump otherwise it's pretty even'ish.

So you can believe whatever poll people put up, you can believe what your Yahoooooo-hoooo tells you or you can use ATS as a honest to goodness example of a REAL straw poll. 100% random user base here.

Me thinks Trump will have quite the audience. The ones that don't like him will see it in snippets the next day in YouTube vids where people are crying about what he said.

I'm willing to put money on it....

Oh ok, thanks. Now educate me on why he can't do the exact same thing from the Senate chamber.

Thanks in advance.

Just to be funny, here is what the US Constitution says: From Senate.gov

He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information on the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States..


I think just to prove the point of who is doing what for the Nation, Trump should give his SOTU address while the Democrats are on there 11 day retreat. Make the SOTU a STFU to the obstructionists in Congress by doing so to.

What were the Democrats traveling to Europe for during a shutdown? Wasn't their Puerto Rican vacation enough?

Let's see if they spend their own money to go commercial. hahahaha

So I take it you are the new Hate Trump troll.

You need to get your head out of your ass and do a little research before you starting defending bull#. It will make you not look at dumb as you seem to be.

Trump can do this however he wants. Besides, most of the DNC house will not go anyways in protest. F'em.
