    It Trump is dumb enough to declare a national emergency in order to get his wall, Congressman Adam Schiff (yep, Trump gave him a nickname too) has a way to deny him his wish. All he has to do is use our our national security agencies to carry out the deed.

    There could be no bigger longer lasting indestructible legacy monument than a border wall. Trump wants that wall to be his Obamacare namesake. He will go to any length to get a Trump's Wall. I'm sure Pelosi knows that and she will be just as obsessed to deny him. Put a bill up that gives Trump the money for the wall with the stipulation it is called Obama Wall. That will end the fight over a wall because Trump would go nuts over it.

    Trump's latest tweets about the wall show a major shift. Now he is pretending that the wall is being built and that he has money for it. Huh? Why then the 35 day shutdown? Tweets from January 31st copied below:

    Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump Jan 31

    Republicans on the Homeland Security Committee are wasting their time. Democrats, despite all of the evidence, proof and Caravans coming, are not going to give money to build the DESPERATELY needed WALL. I’ve got you covered. Wall is already being built, I don’t expect much help!

    Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump Jan 31

    Large sections of WALL have already been built with much more either under construction or ready to go. Renovation of existing WALLS is also a very big part of the plan to finally, after many decades, properly Secure Our Border. The Wall is getting done one way or the other!

    Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump Jan 31

    With Murders up 33% in Mexico, a record, why wouldn’t any sane person want to build a Wall! Construction has started and will not stop until it is finished.

    Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump Jan 31

    Lets just call them WALLS from now on and stop playing political games! A WALL is a WALL!

    ================================================

    Many MSNBC pundits have responded to these Tweets saying that Trump is lying, that the wall is not being built. There are sections of fencing that are being reinforced or replaced, and I expect that Trump is using these as evidence that his wall is indeed being built. We've all seen photos of the fences, and Trump is now claiming that those fences are his "wall". I suppose this is the way he hopes to claim victory as another shutdown is not likely and his threatened call for an emergency will not go over well either. The master con artist is at work...

    Hopefully he will be exposed on the State of the Union. The only trouble is he has nothing to lose so the State of the Union will be one massive lie to portray a hero needing a weapon to keep on fighting.

    Chet, I doubt it; they (GOP) will cheer after every lying sentence. I hope the Dem's don't applaud at all during this farce show. It is sure time someone has the guts to call him out and exactly point out who he is, during this session. But I will put Netflix on because I don't want to throw up by seeing the "fake" (GOP) assholes faces on TV.

    In the meantime the Pentagon is sending another 4000 troops to the border; of course demanded by Trump. Of course this cost nothing either. I guess he's making an "wall" of "soldiers". Has this country gone nuts? First of all it should not be possible that an President can order such without consent from the Congress. But yeah in this total stupid country they still live in the stone age related to "governing" . A President here has no "operating manual" with clear limits of what he can do; it is still like he's an King without limits. How stupid can you get. Discussions about "can you indict an President" etc. should not even take place or if an President is "above the law"; as if he's an "god" or something. When is this country going to wake up and put all these things into an detailed law; not like now: "this has never happened before" or "this is all new to us" or "have the Supreme Court look at it" and then comes with the statement: There is nothing in the Constitution which says so. Wow. Is this country so awful stupid? Answer; YES

    The Washington Post reported this morning that Nancy Pelosi could actually overrule Trump if he declares a national emergency in order to build his wall. Here's how:

    Under the National Emergencies Act, or NEA, both chambers of Congress can pass a resolution terminating any presidentially declared national emergency.

    As I have already said, "don't mess with the Italians."

    It's not a wall now, it's a fence. History has proved no matter how high a wall or fence is, there is always a way over it, under it or around it. Besides, most drugs come in through approved border crossings under the noses of CBP officials.

    It will be interesting to see how this unfolds. Pelosi has said she will support anything that comes out of the bipartisan conference committee. If some of the Democrats compromise to build a "steel fence " in portions, then I suppose if Pelosi supports it, Trump can call it a "win" for him. The conference committee will work through the weekend to find a compromise. Call it a "smart wall" and a win for Trump, and maybe he'll sign it. National emergency averted.

    Look what the army has done to an small town near the border; they are now suing the government.

    That razor wire is an embarrassment to the country. Sick! Imagine if a child got all tangled up in it. It would be the photo that travels around the world in minutes. Good for Nogales asking to have it removed, but Trump and his border agents will cite their "making the city safe" rhetoric once again.

    The razor wire wall should define Trump's presidency. Maybe they should string it around the White House for added security.

    Razor wire could be replaced with jobs.

    Like I said so many times, the President should not have the powers to involve the military; why don't the Dem's put in some laws to prevent these things. It is time to do more than "oversight" make some strong limits on the power of any President. Mulvany said today he will make sure a "wall" will come. How sick is this stupid government; who is going to do something about this "mobster" bunch. Pelosi on her own can't do much.
