RE: Something’s up...

Please elaborate or FRmail me if you know more.
Note: DHS infrastructure group just provided National Pandemic Emergency Vaccine priorities instruction.

And this along with last month’s DHS Nat’l Civil Unrest training at D.C. IMF headquarter has a lot wondering what is going down soon.

Something’s up.”

While Bush “may” have been the right guy, at the time(9/11/2001), because he wasn’t afraid to put the War Button, as time goes on we’re learning that he really was an idiot. Not an idiot in the same way that the Left tries to paint him, but an idiot nonetheless.

Ted Cruz thinks the $14 billion in seized El Chapo cash assets should be used to build the wall.

That's more than enough to make a big dent in the wall-building needed.

Plus the added benefit that Trump can say Mexico, in the form of seized drug-trafficking profits, is paying for the wall.

Keeping his campaign promise to build the wall and Mexico is paying for it.

A twofer.

I take back everything bad I ever said about Ted Cruz. :-)

17 billion -from El Chapo
9 billion from Planned Parenthood paying back to us what they have given out to the dems over the last 18 years

Seeing as how the real cost of the wall is about 26 billion, that'd be about right.

I’ll be surprised if Trump allows defense spending to be cut.

Democrats would be all for it.

“Mulvaney keeps saying the administration has already identified other sources of funding in the federal budget that is available to them for use in wall construction.”

Yet nothing ever happens except fighting with Nancy.

The end of this year is the beginning of an election year. Nothing gets done in an election year.

while defense spending will be cut by $71 billion...

That is the deal breaker.

In 10 months’ time, if Congress fails to act, then an automatic sequester will kick in that would reduce federal spending in 2020 to levels that Congress and President Barack Obama set in the Budget Control Act of 2011.

I like the sound of this. Now I see the wisdom of putting a guy like Mulvaney up close with the President. That guys knows the in’s an out’s of federal spending. Invaluable.

“Every foot of wall is going to disturb the migratory pattern of some worm, or squash a butterfly. Every single foot will be the subject of multiple lawsuits.”

I am quite sure these lawsuits will be tossed if the President declares a national emergency.

There is money he can shift from different areas of the government to pay for the wall without declaring an emergency,it’s been done by past Presidents,he has the authority,that is what he needs to do.

Maybe he could just declare the entire stretch of the border to be an Army Base? Then he could spend DoD money to build it.

It’d be cool if he did that.
