President Trump met with Hannity and Dobbs last week. They both told him he needs to ‘break’ the RATs will or his Presidency is over.

If pressure builds, and the Senate takes up a RAT bill, he will likely VETO it.

If and only if, his Veto cannot be sustained, he will declare a national emergency.

PS - The Turtle is up for election in 2020 - if he turns on Trump, his Senate career is over.

House members poll ratings will be dragged down the longer this goes on -

That’s the strategy, wear down Pelosi and other House members and only go to ‘Plan B’ (National Emergency) if it looks like they will over ride a Veto.

I'm sure Trump would never have thought of that without Hannity and Dobbs.

Geez.

What would make people elect someone like Pelosi? Did they start using some kind of drug in their youth?

Not sure if that was a joke, but Trump was thinking of signing the old Senate extension in December. Once Rush and others picked up on it, the WH switchboard lit up. Then Trump’s 2020 campaign manager said the ‘Wall’ was galvanizing his base like no other issue. His internals on Trump went ‘thru the roof’ when he decided to not to sign it. So in a way, Trump followed his polls.

Recreational drug use in Northern California is the reason demonrats oppose border controls.

Any solution for dreamers has to cost. Like no criminal record and have to qualify and serve time in the military. Their GI bill will not go for education but will allow them to apply and become citizens.

I read a couple days ago that some Paul Ryno type Senators were getting ready to BackStab Trump.

Saw another article today, President Trump has rejected the thee week deal. House reps are taking heat for the shutdown, even though they blame Trump. The longer this goes, the more trouble House Reps will be in. Pelosi does NOT want to capitulate before SOTU. So this is going at least two more paydays for Gov’t employees.

Hold on for the ride ...

This is a no-brainer. Given that the key Democrats strongly supported a wall, but now have changed their minds. The Democrats support for a wall was based on common sense. It is nonsense for the Democrats to oppose a wall because they already recognize the need for border control.

You cannot stop a thousand or more illegal aliens from storming our border with a drone and electronic surveillance. The Democrats know that we need a physical barrier.

The Democrats know that our immigration laws are replete with loopholes and insane provisions.

Do the Democrats oppose the wall because they hate Trump more than they love their country?

It is not about the money. We spend more on sugar subsidies.

The Democrats cannot explain or justify their position, so they party in Puerto Rico and Hawaii.

National Emergency and Military budget spending for the wall has been the plan the entire time.

This $5 billion/shutdown thing is kabuki intended to box the dems in.

“Hold on for the ride ... “

Very much an “in for a penny-in for a pound” situation. We’re in a “100 year” type moment that will be for nought if PDJT buckles. Bugger’m, they’ve ignored-ridiculed multiple opportunities. Instead, in spite their leadership goes to Hawaii and a group of 30 or so are now in Puerto Rico...caucusing! No clue how that’s being paid for. Meanwhile, it’s 25-degrees with 4-6” inches of snow in Warshning.

Apparently, Lindsey “Grahamnesty” is back. So much for Alpha Male Lindsey we saw in the Kavenaugh show trial.

Even then, Trump better make the rats and RINOS put their name on the veto override. Make the GOPE expose to the party’s conservative base who needs primaried in 2020. Stop helping McTurtle and McCrap protects the GOPE backstabbers of conservatives.

Excellent. We knew we can trust Trump.

Now we need to continue supporting him. He is fighting for us.

Light up the congressional switchboard, tell them to support president Trump and put the wall in the budget.
