TRUMP: PENTAGON WILL BUILD WALL
« on: September 08, 2018, 08:24:07 AM »
 :thumbup:

Trump says he could use the MILITARY to build his wall if Congress won't fund it through Homeland Security's budget - and he won't rule out another government shutdown to get his way
DailyMail.com asked the president on Air Force One if he was considering using the Army Corps of Engineers to build his border wall
Congress has been stingy with a Homeland Security budget for the project, providing barely $3 billion and leaving another $25 billion unfunded
Pentagon officials say the Corps of Engineers is suited to perform the work and Trump has boasted about budget increases he has won for the Pentagon
Trump says: 'We have two options: We have military, we have homeland security'
He also said he won't take a government shutdown off the table if Democrats on Capitol Hill keep playing hardball because of immigration politics
He believes a shutdown would be strategically and politically smart
But many Republican lawmakers are counseling patience because they fear being blamed for a shutdown in the final month of re-elecion campaigns

President Donald Trump said Friday that he's considering using military resources to finish construction of his long-promised border wall instead of relying on Congress to fund the project through the Homeland Security Department's budget.

He also wouldn't eliminate the possibility of a government shutdown if Democrats continue to confound his efforts to appropriate money for the project on the U.S.-Mexico border.

'We have two options,' he told DailyMail.com aboard Air Force One as he flew from Billings, Montana to Fargo, North Dakota. 'We have military, we have homeland security.'

He was asked specifically about using the Army Corps of Engineers as a taxpayer-funded construction crew.

It would be good training for the Army Corps of Engineers.

We send engineers from all branches all over the world for training, 24/7.

Building the wall would be a small piece of that training program, for both materials and labor.

Not sure why Trump didn't already tell them to shove it, and do this.

I'm worried about Trump not being a little more forceful on this context.

Just like the criminal cases.

Tell some folks to fuck off, we have criminals to prosecute, and do it already.

I think Trump may still be listening to just a little too much bullshit from Obama plants and RINO pretenders.

Yes, I know it's all about the elections and Kavenaugh and not giving the left any ammo.

OK, so let's do nothing until that's all done.

There had better be some haulin ass after that, next damned day, or this is all bullshit.

What Trump just did here, is what is known as "Floating a Balloon" in politics.
You make a public announcement, then see who comes begging. In this case, Trump just stole the RINO fire they've been building under Trump to get concessions, but Trump just threw water on that fire by making this announcement and there isn't a damned thing they can do about it since they already signed the budget.
Dude, how long you been watching politics, and you still don't get negotiating tactics?

Been watching politics since voting for Reagan, know Trumps negotiating skills, full well.

I also know that we are 2 months until the deadline for making silly excuses.

Beyond mid-terms and Kavanaugh, putting things off is a loser.  It's a sign that something's screwed up.  Either we're being bullshitted by Trump, or Trump is being bullshitted by somebody.

Flame away, insult, ban, whatever's needed.

WTF are you yapping about now? I don't care how long you've been voting, you're still wet behind the ears where negotiations are concerned, and Trump is playing serious hardball here.
Kavanaugh's vote has not been put off, it's right on schedule, or are you not paying attention?
And what does Midterms have to do with anything, or are you under some warped illusion the left has a farts chance in space of miraculously recovering from all the hate and damage they've inflicted on the country.?

Sorry Andy, I don't ban because someone is stupid, no, I keep them around to make an example of. Keep posting, I'm only warming up.

Lol, I never said Kavanaugh was put off.  I'm talking about the prosecution of the dem / FBI crimes being put off, which is our one and only argument.  Hard to follow, eh ?

I never said the dems would win anything, I'm talking about putting off various indictments until after the midterms. Hard to follow, eh ?

Harken back to what I actually said or referenced.  "Building the wall" and "criminal cases".

You banned me once for YOU being stupid, in the argument about Benghazi, F&F, IRS, etc.

You being arrogant about being wrong is weird, indeed.  But we are simply what we are.

Get warmed up, for sure.  Should make for quite a spectacle.

Quit acting like the boy whose momma owns the candy store.

Of course securing the construction zone with a few rifle companies of ground pounding grunts....great way to "Declare Martial Law" without declaring Martial Law.

Look at it this way, congress is all about negotiation on the budget, only every time they agree on anything the tax payer gets screwed. Congress wants something from Trump and is using the wall to get it. Trump just took it off the negotiating
table and will still get the wall. there has to be a panic now going on in congress to get what they want. Much the same way China was offering the fat little pig to Trump for concessions on the trade talks. So Trump cancelled the meetings (for the time being) with the fat little pig to take away China's bait. Watching Trump I can see one hell of a business negotiator,  but hope he is getting all the help he can in the justice department. I have to keep reminding myself, he has not even been in office 2 years. Justice will come. Hope this makes some sense.

This shit has been going on for over 80+ years that I know of.  It's not all going to be cleaned up in two or three years.  AndyJackson can not have it all right now!  What I mean right now is with in the next two year.  Trump is work with more then just 535 members of congress.  This is not like going our and buying a house and demanding everything in it all at once.

Trump is working with everyone and his brother that's trying to kill him off.  He is not the CEO of government, he can not just walk in and say your fired, change this now or your out the door. 

Hell we can not even control what congress get pay or their fringe benefits they give each other.

Go ahead and prove that BS! I never even responded to the post you claim I banned you over.
You were banned for being a total dick and a complete pessimist, claiming we were going to lose everything, essentially a Chicken Little, the sky is falling and the forum was sick of it. That's why you got the boot, and here you are again, whining like a little spoiled brat.

And here we are today, with a President that's totally kicking ass, and all you can do is whine, it's not happening fast enough.

Wrong about what? I've been saying for years now, that the Dim party is dead, they killed themselves, how is that wrong?
I also stated that they will be out of power for at least 3 decades.

Quit acting like the boy whose momma owns the candy store.
Quit acting like a spoiled brat that whines to his dad that the road trip is taking too long.
Enjoy the ride, you''re missing the best part, we're seeing history unfold before our very eyes and all you can do is bitch that he's not doing it fast enough for you.

Tell us Andy, name one thing Trump has done that pissed you off so much that you have to shit on all the good news

Exactly. Now the constituents of the GOP will ask "wait, why did the President have to go that route?".

We still only disagree on one small thing, the speed of the criminal proceedings.

I am not even amused anymore, by whatever else you guys keep wrapping it in and magnifying it with.

But have at it, it's apparently fun in some strange way if you can't stop, lol.

Dude ....... you do see that comma ..... don't you ? 

Means "putting off the prosecutions beyond mid-terms and Kavenaugh".  Is.  A.  Loser.

Yikes.  I am mortified.
