U guys remember when Obama had an emergency address to the nation to lobby for action on Syria? Can you explain to me why tv time on guarding our borders is more insane than tv time to invade another nation which didn’t threaten us? ( keep in mind Obama was lobbying for action against Assad, not isis, who Assad was and still is fighting)

Reply
drewprocess (Jan 7, 2019 - 7:48 pm)

I do not remember the Obama address, but if Trump were preparing to invade another country I would be in favor of giving him TV time to tell us why, even if the reasons were stupid. The border wall is a silly manufactured issue and not worth interrupting my regularly scheduled programs. Plus many of Trump’s claims about it have been shown to be completely fabricated, so it would be irresponsible to show it without pointing out the lies to the viewers.

You’re right. It’s painfully obvious that we need to stop all illegal immigration and send them all back post haste. Tv time not needed.

Trump has recently learned that he can sell US armed forces vets to the Russians for personal gain without taking a political hit since his base consists largely of Putin-worshipping traitors, so I'd say he probably considers eagleton a valuable commodity.

can Trump use his Executive Order power to nip that in the bud? the Dems counter speech would NOT be in the interests OF NATIONAL SECURITY like the President's is supposed to be -- you can't have 2 opposing speeches both being about national security, only one can be for so the other must be against and against means against the national security of the country - NOT GOOD!!

The problem is youre not thinking about the long term security interests.

Wall wont accomplish intended goal, waste of money, decisive domestically leading to shut down of government, strains relations with a friendly neighboring country, hurts long term growth of our economy, and I could keep going but will stop here

The networks could have an intro and a chryon during Trump’s speech that says “President Trump promised repeatedly during the campaign that Mexico would pay for the wall. Now he is asking Congress to make the American taxpayer to pay for it, and has shut down the government until Congress agrees.” This would be a pretty neutral statement of the situation we are in.

Reply
backfromthedead (Jan 8, 2019 - 8:02 am)

Trump will address the nation and argue that he did not shut down the government, he merely hit the "pause" button on the remote control and if you hit the "pause" button again, voila no shutdown and everything's back to normal -- Dems should steal his remote control at which point he'd be totally lost -- I think he should also bring up the issue of the "military parade" he postponed last year because the troops in the parade could wear signs "We will build the wall" and tanks could have colorful slogans painted on them like "We mean business and so does Trump"

More terrorists are found crossing the Northern land border than the Southern land border. Only 6 non US citizen potential terrorists were found crossing the southern border in the first half of 2018, and 41 non US suspected terrorists (7 times more) were found crossing the Northern border.

There is no barrier at all on the North, you just walk through a few trees.

Sensitive is absolutely a real thing, frida.

Sensitive But Unclassified (SBU) is a designation of information in the United States federal government that, though unclassified, often requires strict controls over its distribution. SBU is a broad category of information that includes material covered by such designations as For Official Use Only (FOUO), Law Enforcement Sensitive (LES), Sensitive Homeland Security Information, Sensitive Security Information (SSI), Critical Infrastructure Information (CII), etc. It also includes Internal Revenue Service materials like individual tax records, systems information, and enforcement procedures. Some categories of SBU information have authority in statute or regulation (e.g. SSI, CII) while others, including FOUO, do not.

“Israeli officials (including the head of the Shin Bet) quoted in the newspaper Maariv have said that in the areas where the barrier was complete, the number of hostile infiltrations has decreased to almost zero. Maariv also stated that Palestinian militants, including a senior member of Islamic Jihad, had confirmed that the barrier made it much harder to conduct attacks inside Israel. Since the completion of the fence in the area of Tulkarm and Qalqilyah in June 2003, there have been no successful attacks from those areas. All attacks were intercepted or the suicide bombers detonated prematurely.[54] In a March 23, 2008 interview, Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Ramadan Shalah complained to the Qatari newspaper Al-Sharq that the separation barrier "limits the ability of the resistance to arrive deep within [Israeli territory] to carry out suicide bombing attacks...”
