The stakes in the shutdown are now enormous.
For President Trump if he backs down and there is no border security his presidency is over. He has drawn the line and bet it all on it.
For Schumer and Pelosi, they have stated clearly no wall. I think they may be against the steel plates too, but I am unsure. You see, I don’t know their position, do you? They have the support of the MSM who blame them for nothing and are riding that to public support.
Thus the President must go on the air tonight to try and build momentum for his argument. It is a major speech. He must be strong, impactful and truthful.
The Democrats asked for time to counter and will have to say something about their plan, and just not attack the President.
Let’s see how the public reacts. We know the MSM will support Schumer and Pelosi and call Trump a liar.
What will the public say?
Is Chief Justice Roberts the new swing liberal vote on the court? He voted to save Obamacare (5-4 vote) and kill the President’s asylum bill (5-4). He seems to want to protect the court and maintain what he thinks is order. I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise another Bush appointee would be an issue.
How come the MSM pretty much ignored this Russian interference in the Alabama Senate race from last year?
A Facebook page The “Dry Alabama” had a blunt message: “Alcohol is the devil’s work, and the state should ban it entirely.”
The prohibitionist campaign appeared to be led by supporters of Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate who lost to Democrat Doug Jones. But it was actually a stealth creation of liberals trying to defeat him. The campaign is the second so-called false flag operation by Democrats to be discovered in that race — and the latest example of how dirty tricks on social media are creeping into American politics.
And how come the MSM didn’t give this coverage
On Sunday it was confirmed that a US airstrike blew away the mastermind of the 2000 terror attack on the USS Cole in which 17 Navy sailors were killed.
“Our GREAT MILITARY has delivered justice for the heroes lost and wounded in the cowardly attack on the USS Cole. We have just killed the leader of that attack, Jamal al-Badawi. Our work against al Qaeda continues. We will never stop in our fight against Radical Islamic Terrorism!” the President tweeted.
You may recall that while President Clinton served, suicide bombers steered a boat packed with explosives into the Cole, a guided-missile destroyer, while it was refueling at the Yemeni port of Aden on Oct. 12, 2000. 17 were killed, 39 others were injured.
A Navy spokesman, Capt. William Urban, said US forces determined Badawi was killed in an airstrike carried out in Yemen on New Year’s Day after a “deliberate assessment process.”
Badawi and the suicide bombers were recruited by Osama bin Laden and trained in Afghanistan.
News worthy don’t you agree?
