Let's be clear...Trump is threatening to shut down the government! Trump wants the blame...oops! Now he is blaming the Democrats, even though he stated that he wanted the blame for shutting down the government!

Here are the actual words stated by Lyin' Don the Michelin Man who never met a burger he didn't like, when he met with Pelosi and Schumer. In their often pointed exchange, Fat Donny stated, "So I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I'm not going to blame you for it." That was a long time ago in Potuzziland...December 11th. Now, on December 21st (a whole ten days later), Lyin' Don lies again, and states, "If enough Dems don't vote, it will be a Democrat Shutdown!"

First of all, we have Lyin Don lying yet again! This, unfortunately, is par for the course (please note the intentional golf reference). This Fat Donny-created impasse has sent the already beleaguered stock market into yet a further downward spiral. But, as a prototypical narcissist, Potuzzi wants credit when things are going well, but blames others when things are going poorly. Polls showed that most Americans viewed a government shutdown badly, so the Michelin Man now points to the Democrats.

Most unfortunately, the real crux of the issue is missed totally. Now, even though Lyin' Don has backed off of his solid wall, down to what is now, (quoting the POTUS here), "artistically designed steel slats." Why is this POTUS insisting upon an archaic barrier? The Great Wall of China was started hundreds of years before Jesus and his disciples walked the earth and was completed over 1000 years later, in the mid 17th Century. China was still invaded successfully, nevertheless. The Berlin Wall kept many people in East Berlin and East Germany against their will, but thousands escaped every year, and the population of East Germany often fell during that time.

I have often stated that this POTUS is not stupid. He is ignorant, and wants to stay that way. Fat Donny never allows facts to stand in the way of his gut feelings!
The Wall is a simplistic, archaic solution to a self-serving, self-created problem which is overblown at its worst! And, with the cost of steel increasing because of the tariffs this POTUS is imposing, the Wall will cost that much more. How much? Our POTUS will not issue an estimate. And, while he still claims that Mexico is "paying" for the Wall because of the self-serving estimated claims of a decreasing balance of trade with Mexico, why does Lyin' Don need Congress to appropriate money for his pet [archaic] project? The answer is that the common American will pay for the Wall. They are paying in higher prices for imported goods which have high tariffs, imposed by our POTUS. And they will pay if Congress appropriates billions of their tax dollars to erect the "artistically designed steel slats" that would make up the [archaic] Wall!
But, hey...Fat Donny and his billionaire buddies are doing just fine no matter what. They ain't eatin' no cat food, are they?

This opinion from Jacinda Ma on the Faux News website: "President Trump’s claim that opponents of his wall are calling for open borders and want to allow gangs of rapists, murderers and terrorists to stream across our southern border to attack Americans and flood our communities with dangerous illegal drugs is hype."
"The scary images conjured up by the president are designed to create a crisis atmosphere where no crisis exists, so his wall can gain public support and so he can pressure Congress to approve funding for the wall."
And, while I know that many who post here hate facts, Ma uses one to make her argument that there is NO CRISIS even stronger, "The truth is that far from there being a crisis on our border, unauthorized immigration is actually down 13 percent from its peak in 2007."

Get it folks? THERE IS NO CRISIS! We do have a border problem, but as Ma states also, "No serious policymaker is suggesting open borders – letting everyone who wants to come to the U.S. enter our country without limit."
In other words, the POTUS is lying about this issue, too!

the Wall would come to Homeland Security from the U.S. Treasury and NOT from Mexico! I am just waiting for the POTUS to tweet something like, "Well, Mulvaney is new to being Chief of Staff to me, and he misinterprets the facts. One way or the other, Mexico is paying for the Wall! And they will like it, too!"
We'll see how long Mulvaney lasts if he keeps telling the truth, instead of the "Fake Truth" as conjured up in the nebulous, inexplicable mind of our narcissistic POTUS.
Here's the statement, the actual words of the interview Mulvaney had with ABC on "This Week," yesterday: “The Department of Homeland Security can’t actually spend money from Mexico. We have to get it from the Treasury.”
Let me translate. It's really quite simple. Money, as Mulvaney clearly states "...from the Treasury," are your tax dollars and mine! Our tax dollars would be used to build the Wall -- period! And, as I will continue to point out, the Wall [which is now to be, "artistically designed steel slats"], would be an insignificant barrier because it is an archaic solution for a 21st Century problem. It's sort of like the people of Ethiopia when they tried to throw spears at Italian airplanes in the 1930s. The Ethiopians were trying to defend themselves using archaic weapons against what was then modern air power. How did that work out?

so-called Wall (now "artistically designed steel slats) is an archaic, inadequate barrier.
Here is a link to actual facts about how Genghis Khan breached the Great Wall of China IN THE EARLY 13th CENTURY, with his very limited 13th Century technology, SEVERAL TIMES! These breaches by the Mongols of the Great Wall of China, occurred almost exactly 800 YEARS AGO!! https://www.travelchinaguide.com/china_great_wall/military-defense/gengh...
These successful breaches of the Great Wall of China 800 YEARS AGO, led to the overthrow of the Jin Dynasty, and allowed the Mongols to begin the Yuan Dynasty later in the 13th Century!
Do I think that Lyin' Don the Michelin Man who never met a burger he didn't like, is too stupid to comprehend this information? NO!! Do I think he is not aware of these facts? Probably. Why? Because this POTUS wallows in his own ignorance, and hates to study anything! I know this because his former advisers unanimously say so! That's why he loves Faux News, Rush, Ann Coulter, and other alt-right sources because they tell him stuff (mostly false and/or distorted), so he doesn't have to study, since he HATES reading. Study takes effort, and our POTUS is intellectually LAZY!
