Your description of the terrain is accurate, but I think you are misinformed about the nature of the terrain. In the desert, roads are optional for most vehicles. I have parked a semi truck and trailer, loaded, on that sand; it is solid in that respect as a rock. So there's really no need for a road, as SUVs can simply drive cross country without any issue at all.

In short all this did, is state she can not take military transport, or enjoy such that is provided by the US military. However, it does not stop her from travelling to any country, using public transportation or even if need by using her own funds to charter a private airplane.

Ultimately, Trump is making a mistake, by his own working and it will come back to affect him and future administrations for years to come.



You mean the gargoyle pelosi would have to spend her own money for her and her minions? She'd never do that.

Apparently its only a tantrum if its Trump walking away from a no go meeting........

Why wont the Dems meet to discuss? Whose fault again?


What is there to discuss? Trump's "negotiation" is "agree with my terms or the shutdown continues." That isn't negotiation, or a discussion - it's "do what I want or I will walk out of your meeting."



No, Trump's negotiation is '"Sort out border security because thousands are dying and/or being abused. Until such a time, there is no point to having a Govt."

Once again, Trump proves you shouldn't get in these type of battles with him.

He returned Pelosi's luggage to her congressional office.....LOL.

She sure packed a lot for seven days.

so, why didn't the first lady fly commercial back to mar largo after that?
by the way, trump blew polosi's trip, regardless of how she got there when he publicly revealed her plans.

The First Lady is not involved in the border security and govt funding discussions.
Nancy doesn't seem able to prioritise, so the President did it for her.

she prioritized...
she felt that getting the danged gov't was important and revived the bills that they had already negotiated to at the beginning of december and the house passed them.. they are sitting in the senate waiting to be voted on.
but, well, guess trump thinks it's better for the congress to start from scratch again and work out some kind of deal, rewrite the bills, send them to the committees, and see if they will get the votes to pass...
which, at the end of it all, they will probably find out trump has changed his mind again and they can start all over again!!

As awesome as this is, it would have been even more awesome if he let them go on the trip.





Then once they reached the destination country, tell them that due to the shutdown, the return flight is grounded. They would have to find their own way home.

Why does everyone think Trump is a Senator?

If the bill is sitting in the Senate, Trump can't sign it.

As for Pelosi, this ain't Burger King; you don't get it your way. Pelosi, sad as this may be for her to hear, is not Queen of the US. There are other people in elected office that have to be on board with any spending. As Speaker, it is her job to handle primary negotiations to get bills passed. Maybe that's too hard for her? Maybe she just wants to say "screw this" and gallyvant around the globe on military and government transportation to all the places where she doesn't have to actually talk to those inferior beings that other inferior beings voted into office?

How dare they not roll over and whimper when the Almighty Pelosi speaks!

If she can't do her job, find someone who will.

I think POTUS handled this perfectly.
The pictures of all those little kids on the bus having a hissy fit because their trip to Disney World was cancelled at the last minute...was priceless.

Hahaha. Maybe she should just go useing her own money.

These 2 are so stubborn. But the difference is that Pelosi and Schumer are only causing the gov shutdown and not funding the wall just because it’s trumo asking for it, and don’t like the man.

But I bet you if Obama wanted the wall funded and pressed so hard like trump it would of already been built, 50 feet high concrete wall with electrical wire on top

What I see is the President asking for negotiations and the House saying, "NO".

This is a perfect opportunity for the House to ask for SOMETHING in return, but they are only replying, "NO".

Our system of government is BASED on compromise. When either side says, "NO", and nothing else, government stops governing.

Pelosi and dem House members leaving the country for 7 days would've GUARANTEED yet another full week without pay for government employees.

Hawaii-Puerto Rico-Brussels-Afghanistan-Egypt(?)
It's clear Pelosi WANTS this shutdown to continue while she and dems continue to travel, lobby and party at taxpayer expense.

She is the first lady. She is not Nancy Pelosi.

Besides, Pelosi is so 'worried' about security she wants to postpone the SOTU but flying into a warzone would be ok? Think about that logic.....

She wanted to pretend to be president.



Asked if she considers herself Mr. Trump’s equal, she replied, “The Constitution does.”


Maybe when she retires she can pass the loony mantle to AOC....

Pelosi's history of using and abusing Taxpayer money to fund her trips is atrocious.

Where else was she going to put all the heroin she was planning to bring back from her "meeting with the troops" in Afghanistan?

What an incredibly pretty and childish act to cancel the congressional delegation's trip.

I love it.
