President Trump To Declare National Emergency in Tuesday White House Address

.

In a blow to the Globalists "Open Borders" policy, and the obstruction efforts by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to block our Country from ever protecting its Southern Border, President Trump will now give a public address from the White House on Tuesday Night to declare a National Emergency and take Executive action to secure our own Country's Borders.

---

.

---

Withdrawing from the Neocon/Globalists Middle-East Wars, and terminating the chaotic and wage-depressing Open Borders policies, and renegotiating all the corrupt, one-sided Trade policies are three big strikes Trump has taken against the authoritarian New World Order, Global Government grand design .. and represent a reassertion of original American autonomy, liberty, and Economic Independence.

The Deep State is in a panic now as Trump begins to outmaneuver the enemies that have surrounded his administration from the outset in the areas of both Foreign and Domestic affairs.

Buckle-up folks as the moves against the corrupt Establishment status-quo is now raised to a new level.

For most of human history, they weren’t a thing, and I gather that one of the less obvious ways the European powers screwed up Africa was by creating controlled borders across trade routes that were millennia old.

On the other hand, open borders are used by modern capital to avoid political regulation, so asserting them for the 1% seems like a Good Thing.

But the small handed one is not addressing either problem. Instead he is beating up on the poor and desperate. Again. So sorry if I don’t cheer. (Plus I’m an immigrant myself...)

Looks like Bolton changed Trump's mind about doing that. Trump went from he's pulling them out now because ISIS has been defeated to he didn't actually mean now, but a few weeks, okay the end of April to not until ISIS is defeated and the Kurds are safe.

Bolton: US troops will not leave Syria till Isis beaten and Kurds protected

You can kinda see why no believes much of anything Trump says because he changes his mind so easily. From saying that he will own the government shutdown to now blaming it on Nancy Pelosi.

But then there's that campaign promise of his that Mexico will pay for the wall to asking congress for money for it to now declaring a national emergency and getting the military to build it.

Trump should be called the windsock president because he goes wherever the last person he talks to tells him to.

@snoopydawg

I hear what you're saying.

Trump was surrounded by many insubordinate and subversive status-quo Neocon types (McChrystal, McMaster, Tillerson, Mattis, Kelly, Priebus, etc.). Almost all of them are all gone now. I never liked Bolton either and I never trusted him.

The slower-walk on Syria is just more subversive action by the MIC to prevent Trump from achieving his goals, and not some sort of philosophy change on the part of Trump. Trump will eventually see through the subterfusion and retake control as he has had to do with other matters.

I have no doubt Trump will bring the troops back, and that is the end result that he wants. Trump seems to have a lot of patience with people who do not share his agenda, but in the end ... Trump will prevail on this policy.

@FreeSociety

the troops out of Syria. If he does this then there's a good chance that he really wants to end our foreign ride to hegemony. But Trump is friends with Bibi and it's Bibi who got us into Syria in the first place as well as our own goals over there. Plus he hasn't said anything about bringing them home from Iraq or Africa where they are building the biggest drone base overseas. Sorry but I doubt it's just insubordination that is keeping him from doing this.

From the link

US troops will not leave north-eastern Syria until Islamic State militants are defeated and US-allied Kurdish fighters protected, national security adviser John Bolton said on Sunday, signaling a pause to a withdrawal abruptly announced last month and initially expected to be completed within weeks. Achieving such conditions will likely take months or even years.

@snoopydawg and sometimes his instincts are right. Trying to get along with N. Korea is an example of a correct instinct (his Iraq policy being an example of the opposite). However, he doesn't have a coherent foreign policy view and he appoints hacks who subvert any policy opposed by the MIC and he is malleable and ignorant enough to let them get away with it.

Evidently Trump supporters who claim to be nationalists and all about freedom and whatever else this country "used to" stand for, i.e., white power, don't care about democracy. They prefer a megalomanical narcissistic liar who represents the capitalist class to declare fake emergencies so they can get a fucking wall that won't do a damn thing to solve the real problems for the vast majority of us. This is just a political stunt by a crazy man.

If the wall won't do anything, why are so many so strongly opposed to it? It can't be the money; 5 billion is chump change compared to the 5 trillion we've wasted in the Middle East. It can't be the environmental impact; there are cures for that.

Is the real fear that the wall will be successful at reducing illegal immigration? And if so, why are so-called progressives on the side of a bunch of capitalists who love the idea of having abundant cheap labor available to depress wages?

Do you believe it's merely coincidence that the stagnation of worker's wages over the past 35 years coincides with the massive increase in illegal immigrant workers over the same time period?

@edg Like union busting from St Ronnie the Dim and before him even didn't help with that? While I completely agree keeping people "illegal" depresses overall wages, why on earth is this idiotic country blaming them and not the fuckers who voted to gut wages, benefits, etc?

The enemy isn't the brown poor people coming over the border, the enemy is the latest asshole we all just voted for. Shame this country can't pull its head out of its collective ass and see reality instead of scapegoats. Walls keep people in as well, when the shit really hits the fan I personally wonder just how many who think that Wall will really help will scream like hell when they're trapped here? Canada best get their shit together quick like and erect their own wall before a bunch of moronic Americans try going "illegal" up there.

Isn't it interesting how the republicans can just issue up this money for the wall, but can't use it to help Americans? And yes I've heard that 'illegal' immigrants cost the country unknown billions, but it spent trillions destabilizing their countries. Let's stop doing that and see if that decreases the number of people who are fleeing theirs.

@snoopydawg I have mixed feelings about a lot of this. On one hand, I believe that any country has a right to defend and maintain its borders. On the other hand, I find the idea of a wall both repugnant and downright stupid as to its ultimate effectiveness. This is in addition to the fact that in areas where there is already a wall, it is ugly and could prove to be an environmental negative.

The problem we see here is that the influx of illegal immigrants and the mass migration from certain countries usually have a specific cause and often that cause is tied directly to US foreign policy. Instead of looking at the result and doing a botch up job of plugging holes in the dam, perhaps US politicians should be looking at the root cause of illegal immigration and doing their best to avoid causing it.

@edg (not to downplay the immigration issue which is real problem) I meant the reasons for illegal immigration, why people from the south are wanting into this country, etc., and the role the ruling class plays in all this. Putting up more wall doesn't address the underlying issues that brought us to this point.

Why are so many strongly opposed? Many believe it's just a band-aid like I said and won't solve the problem; many don't like the idea of having walls all over the planet like scared little ants; many don't want more police state control and loss of freedom, many might be in favor of open borders, I don't know.

Relative to wages, no I don't believe it's a coincidence, although that is certainly not the only reason for stagnating wages and it's probably only a small one. So again, putting up a wall as an effort to help with US wages is not going to work and doesn't solve that problem. In my opinion.

Personally, I don't want walls and all the police state bullshit that goes with it. The whole thing has gotten too Orwellian for me. I remember going into Mexico and Canada and you didn't even need an ID. Now look at us. I think there are much better ways to address the issue of illegal immigration and the wall is just a dog whistle political show to the Trump supporters and conservatives in this country.

You wrote: "the issue of illegal immigration and the wall is just a dog whistle political show".

It's fun to blame Trump for everything related to illegal immigration. But consider these statements from famous Democrats:

“We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked.” -- Barack Obama, 2005

“I voted, when I was a Senator, to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in.” -- Hillary Clinton, 2015

It may seem shocking, but Democrats are also extremely concerned about the issue. But only when it suits their political agenda, of course.

@edg @edg so saying the dems do it too, which I'm fully aware of, doesn't mean anything to me. I suppose it would for those who support the democratic party or some of it's politicians. But ya, it's a dog and pony show for the progressives and liberals too. Trump is just the lead dog whistler at the moment.

then can a democrat who ran on single payer also declare a state of emergency and take funds from wherever and implement it? Or for free college or any other campaign promise?

The number of immigrants coming here illegally has been dropping every year for awhile. And where many of them came from is by airplanes when they were allowed into the country and then they stayed after their time was up. As for drugs coming in through the border I'm betting that the CIA is responsible for more drugs than that. Opium production is at an all time high since we invaded Afghanistan and got them up and running again. Funny how no one talks about that.

@snoopydawg I just watched "KIll the Messenger", the movie about the reporter Gary Webb and his reporting on the CIA flooding LA with crack and running drugs to help the Contras. It's the same for the other main excuse, terrorism. Almost all "terrorism" in this country and at the border is manufactured by the FBI. I don't hear Trump supporters calling for a wall around the CIA or FBI.
This whole business about it being a "national emergency" is beyond belief and those believing Trump on this, particularly low paid or unemployed white Americans, are dupes along the order of Obama stooges.

@snoopydawg The scenario of Trump declaring a national emergency in order to build a border wall is frightening. He has already shut down the government over the wall which is terrible to begin with, but declaring a national emergency ramps this up to a whole new level. What next --- martial law? MAGA people should be very careful of what they wish for.

is all the people affected by the shutdown, all the government workers who are working without getting paid right now to stop working. That would bring things to a grinding halt right quick.

that the White House, Senate, SCOTUS, and Congress shouldn't be getting paid either. Of course, they can afford it when the workers can't, but still, at least it is consistent. Notice the IRS will still be operating. Afterall, they have refocused all their auditing from the top 1% to the bottom.

declaring a state of emergency and becoming a dictator. Remember NSPD51? Bush younger tried that and it didn't happen. What I'm worried about is that Trump won't secretly back down (like W did) and will be removed from office, giving Pence or (worse) a Democratic replacement an excuse to maintain "a real state of emergency". Especially a corporate Democrat would be a figurehead dictator, actually a tool of the corporate police state, and that would be an Orwellian terror state beyond imagination.

@crescentmoon My husband just bought a .22 rifle for his birthday. My mom owns a .22, a 17, and a 9mm handgun.

(And really, it's no different than any other rifle, except it's really really heckin' LOUD.)

I despise that southern wall, the self-created ecological humanitarian disaster barrier. It is disgusting, I dream of the day we all unite and "grab a crow bar and a drill, head out for the southern wall" just like Berlin, and tear it down! That would be great.

Did anyone notice MX is creating a National Healthcare System, like Canada's? They are rolling it out in stages, state by state. Meanwhile, California just got another governor who wants to "expand ObombaCare mandate".

His plan would reinstate the individual mandate, a tax on people who don’t have insurance that was part of the federal Affordable Care Act. Congress revoked it in 2017, allowing people to opt out of having health insurance without a penalty.

Right wing loves to punch down, and so does the left. Doh! Something makes me admire Trump for appearing to deliver on his every campaign promise. He is the perfect Reality TV President, spewing constant confusing propaganda and accusing opponents of "projection". house of mirrors

Trump has, throughout his entire life, demonstrated a very consistent track record of being a narcissistic sociopath. He has screwed over anyone and everyone at every opportunity. While I do appreciate him bailing on TPP and "renegotiating" NAFTA, didn't he just sign/propose/whatever some new NAFTA... one which still sucks turds?

Then there is the wall. I am no fan of globalism OR open borders. Globalism seems nice but until we find some ways to put checks on capital, it just becomes a way for the parasites to suck off of bigger veins. Insofar as "open borders", being able to control who is and is not a citizen seems fundamental to the very concept of being a nation. So I'm not in favor of open borders.

Finally, Trump used words that sounded like he was going to pull out of Syria and Afghanistan. Like all things Trump, I will believe it when I see it. Day by day it's looking less like a thing. And frankly, much as I approve of pulling out of those two countries, military budgets are larger than ever so he is STILL fucking over the American people to enrich the MIC.

Overall, the notion that Trump is trying to work on my behalf seems about as likely as Hillary doing so. The one thing I got from Trump's election is that he's enough of a loose cannon that he has, at least, flummoxed the establishment a bit here and there. That's better than Hillary would've done.
