The wall is being built. 

Dream on.

 

trump’s wall ain’t happening. 

 

If he wants a tax payer funded wall then he needs to cost it accurately (actually I wouldn’t trust his costing, so let’s say have it costed by people who know what they’re doing) and face the electorate on that platform, rather than lie and say Mexico will pay.

Or lie like Pelosi and say A. it won't be built and then give partial funding. 2. The wall is an immorality and won't give more than a dollar. She wasted political capital as the party leader and lost credibility. When the dems try to bring morality into the new green deal discussions it will be laughable because of this hypocrisy.

Don't fall for media propaganda.

You see, they all got what they wanted.

While the public's attention was diverted to some "wall", a coup de'tat was successfully initiated in Venezuela.

Trump, Pelosi, and Netanyahu are celebrating.

They have their eyes on the oil, gold, and other natural resources of Venezuela.  Also, the pharmaceutical lobby, the police state network, and the corrupt politicians got to keep their dirty money stream from cannabis persecution going.

So who lost on all this?

The dumbed-down public.

This is all just bizzaro land.

 

I lived in San Diego for 20 years and there is a wall. Most of the Southern border is pretty impassable just by geography.

Build a 15ft wall, well you get a 16ft ladder.

The drug cartels are pretty good at making tunnels to traffic their goods

Not to mention that 60% of all illegal immigrants arrive by air, then just overstay their visa

 

....oh yeah and wasn't Mexico gonna cough up the $5B???

 

Sometimes I despair about DC

Trump is going to declare a "National Emergency" in an attempt to grab funding for the "Wall". Believe estimated overall cost is around $20billion. trump is a disgrace as clearly incapable to govern in a democratic environment, trump is unfit for the Office of the President of the USA.

You care when Trump lies but are unable to concede to the simple fact that Pelosi lied. I really don't care but it is interesting to see that you can't just acknowledge that and move on. Anyway the wall has a green light to go forward is the larger point. That Pelosi isn't an honest person isn't the real news.

 

Now however funding is achieved the wall can be built and that wasn't the case before. So it could be said Pelosi won a battle here but her concession will ultimately lead to the wall being built and she will lose the war. 

I don't see how she lied, there has always been funding provided for border security in the democratic proposals. Nothing has changed, it just has gotten a bit less.

Watch the video. She says it is an immorality and she won't authorize more than a single dollar. It's just as bad as Trump saying Mexico will pay for it. Mexico isn't paying for it and Pelosi has authorized more than one dollar. 

 

She is a hypocrite because she is funding something that in her opinion is an immorality. I can't believe I have to explain any of this had anybody watched the. video.

There is no money in the bill for a wall.

 

You see a wall being built where no wall is being built and funds for a wall where there are no funds for a wall.

 

This disconnect from reality might give you comfort but please don’t expect the rest of us to swallow these blatant imaginings.

Ted Cruz suggests that El Chappo will pay for the wall, somehow.

 

Oddly ironic, and strange at the same time as The Wall is supposed to "stop the flow of drugs". /facepalm

 

No clue how Ted is this stoopid?

Sadly, this IS about a WALL.   It IS NOT about border security.   There are much more effective and less expensive means of protecting the border:

 

Fiber-optic cables could secure the border instead

Amid the cacophony, one lawmaker has tried fruitlessly to divert attention away from the wall, and toward fiber-optic technology that could pinpoint with precision where border intrusions occur, determine what exactly is coming across, and relay the information to Border Patrol agents in realtime.

 

"I would love to lay a fiber-optic cable from sea to shining sea," Rep. Will Hurd, a Texas Republican who represents more of the US-Mexico border than anyone in Congress, told The New York Times' "The Daily" podcast in January.

Oh really? His approval rating is now 50% or more. More popular now than even Barack Obama. He will win the next election I am quite sure of it. Wall or not.

Zero chance. He will be considered radioactive by the GOP, by the end of this year. Mark my words. Just wait. He will be buried in felonious accusations and evidence. Never in the history of the American presidency has a leader been so filthy.

Well the only response from TopDeadSenter was the sad icon.

 

What is the problem? Did the cat get your tongue?

 

You posted 1 link saying the Trump approval rating was better.

 

I provided 4 links that say otherwise.

 

Your turn to outbid me.
