The President will use the Army Corp of Engineers to build the wall.

I'm thinking no state of emergency, instead a short (3 weeks or so) continuing resolution to try to do something with Congress.

Declares a national emergency and tasks the military with putting up the fence.

Pull out of NATO, close all the European bases, reopen on the southern border, use the troops to build the wall, I like it.
Pretty sure the CIC could do that without even bothering the capital Hill Delta house frat boys

Speculating, he will disclose aliens are real and that he has been conducting trade negotiations with an alien species to get a better trade deal but now they are threatening to start bombing major cities unless the shutdown ends soon because the shutdown has interfered with negotiations. Democrats say they won't believe it until they see spaceships over major cities. Without any evidence Trump threatens 60% tariffs and reverses all stock market gains. Then he tweets it looks like a good buying opportunity for survivors of the coming war with the aliens. After Congress gets blasted by the aliens and their building blown up, Trump easily wins the national emergency debate but decides we need to spend all extra money on the space force.

He plans on having this 15 year wall building project done before the next election.

I am hoping that warnings of RIF are laid out on the table... causing Monday and Tuesday to force some sort of cohesive strategies to play.

RIF shall be put into play for elected officials who put Americans as a whole second to their bipartisan beefs. The beefs have long begged for a trimming of the fat, and it shall be a welcomed feast to thin the herd.


This is what I'm hoping for but I can't even imagine all the carnage from the Lefties heads exploding. They would be gobsmacked. They would lose their # over nameless and faceless bureaucrats who couldn't give a crap about them. It would be sickening to watch.

Tomorrow will be the first big announcement. More good stuff to come. It's a good thing Pelosi was kept here in the country. Medical care for mental-breakdown isn't as good in Afghanistan, as it is here.

Protect Dreamers and build the wall, and we can all win

www.dallasnews.com...


The government shutdown is in its fourth week, with no end in sight because our leaders in Washington don’t seem to want an end that doesn’t amount to political humiliation of the opposition.

But imagine for a moment that President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer could see their way to a compromise that Americans would support and that would greatly benefit this country.

To us, it would look like this: The president would get the funding he seeks to enhance border security, including some 230 miles of physical barrier, but also with more technologically sophisticated solutions.

In return, the president would agree to a sweeping deal to protect young people who were brought to this country without authorization at ages when they had no say over what happened to them.

We are speaking here of the Dreamers. That includes the 800,000 young people officially protected from deportation under the law known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. But it also includes an additional 1 million people brought here before their 16th birthday but who have not qualified for DACA for a variety of reasons. Some have committed minor crimes. Others refused to register under DACA for fear that they would be spotlighted and face faster deportation than they would risk if they remained under shadow.

The Dreamers have the sympathy of the American people, and they deserve it. Stories abound of these young people making their way in this country against obstacles of poverty, language and living in homes headed by unauthorized immigrants. Many are exactly who America would hope to have as immigrants. And, of course, they broke no law in coming here. They were children under the agency of adults.

Across the country, meanwhile, rhetoric about Trump’s wall has become distorted in language of morality. The president bears much of the blame for this. From the time of his “bad hombres” comment to his persistent tweets highlighting the worst sort of immigrant, he has courted a sense that he is anti-immigrant. But his opponents on the left are less than honest when they suggest that any attempt to secure our southern border with a physical barrier is unAmerican or immoral.

A deal in which America protects Dreamers and gives them a clear and simple path to citizenship while offering real protection on the border would be a way for both the president and Democratic leaders to walk away from this shutdown as winners. What’s more, the American people would support them.

The only thing that is needed for a deal is leaders on both sides deciding that they can let the other side have something.

If that’s not the art of the deal, what is?


Is a compromise coming in this announcement?

The media wouldn't be running an editorial like this if the worm hadn't turned.

The guy has gotten more done in the first half of his first term than Bush and Obama got done in 16 years, despite obstruction from his own party and the opposition.
Creating a business friendly environment that has black and Hispanic unemployment hitting all time lows, actually fighting the trade war that this country has been in for forty years, manufacturing roaring back in to the country at a seven hundred percent increase over anything the last two or three, or four jackasses could manage, the non-participator rate going down in a real meaningful way for the first time in my memory.
He'll get my vote again

He’s getting everybody’s vote again, and then some.

That wouldn't justify a big important announcement. Especially since the President said the announcement would be related to southern border security.

He'd have far more than $5.7 Billion available if he bypasses Congress. The $5.7 Billion would only cover a few hundred miles with top-notched barrier and electronic border security. If you want to greatly improve America's protection against criminals and drugs from the south, you don't do it half-azzed.

I just re-read: twitter.com...

IMO,

National Emergency to get the Wall/Fence built.
and
Will sign Senate's Government Funding Bill that was passed in December. (It included $1.1 Billion for Border Security, but no "Wall" funds.) Senate's Bill = Just 7 weeks of funding: thehill.com...

It will be one of three things...
1. National Emergency: Shutdown over, Wall commencing with funds from other pools of money.
2. National Emergency, Wall funded with pools of other money but shutdown continues until Congress approves refunding those pools.
3. Shutdown over, budget with no Wall funds approved, but National emergency full stop closure of Southern border until Wall funds are provided by Congress.

My hope is #2, but #1 is most likely outcome.


I'd like to see option 2 with a drastic RIF of the entrenched, career bureaucrats. By cutting their salaries along, they could pay for the wall. Think of the money saved yearly. Even if it was only 1 billion a year, over 5.75 years, the wall would be paid for!

We have seen that the gov is running smoothly w/o a large number of staffers, some media channels are making noise, but they seem to be the only ones
