.... Does it not strike any clear thinking American citizen that the liberal media, pundits, & protest

groups that will do anything to insure that Trump/ USA will fail just so the Democratic party can regain

control & continue the plethora of failed policies as off-the-chart insane?

.... They seem to have taken a page from BLM on how to be counter-productive and screw yourself

royally, .. they have effectively converted more liberals to independents & plunged themselves into

the bowels of irrelevance with zero chance of recovery .

 

.... Premium entertainment 24/7 lol -

Over two years ago (Aug 2014) the total days on vacation for Obama were 125 (full and partial).  At the same point in his presidency George W Bush had taken 407 full or partial days.

 

Obama is a goddamn workaholic in comparison

 

GWB ended up with a grand total of 533 full or partial vacation days

Billy Clint racked up 174 days

Reagan ended up with 390

Trump's ego is driven by success, he wants to prove he can accomplish everything he promised

just to prove his non-supporters wrong . I'm hoping he hangs up the golf clubs for his 1st term &

really puts the hammer down -

Things should finally start getting interesting today

 

Donald Trump: 'We will build Mexico border wall'

 

The new US president is expected to sign several executive orders regarding immigration and border security over the next few days.

 

They are likely to include the "extreme vetting" of people coming from seven predominantly Muslim countries in the Middle East and Africa.

 

This would restrict refugee access.

He also plans on pushing through the dakota access and possibly the keystone xl oil pipelines. **** is going to burn in ND again. There are 700+ hipsters still camped there even though the tribe asked them to leave.

Can someone explain executive orders to me? America is famed for its political "checks and balances", but am I right that an executive order bypasses all of that? Is there any limit to how many a president can pass?

no. nobody can.

 

you need to be a constitutional scholar to understand it and certainly nobody in America does.

 

the orders are supposed to be issued to the executive branches of government but must also conform to the constitution. So many of them end up being thrown out by the supreme court.

 

trump issued one for the pipeline problems which basically bypass a number of legal logjams and push the process forward - but the process must still conform to all regulations.

Trump is still in campaign mode.

 

The wall will happen - mostly because it already exists on many spots = so they can just continue expanding it here and there. He can shuffle the nafta deal around so that more cash ends up in america and call it mexico paying for the wall

 

Just one more meaningless piece of campaigning

Oh and btw to those Americans whose property gets rekked by the wall? Tough ****. Its like a pipeline or a hydro right of way. Except that it serves no real purpose other than to get people elected.

It's the same as the Canada border. They cut a large swath of trees out. It doesn't matter if it was on private land or not. I would assume that they would just buy the land needed.

 its going to be a lot more intrusive than that.

 

here is an article that actually explains some of the nuts and bolts problems that this ridiculous plan will bring up.

here is an article explaining that drug smugglers already tunnel under the border where the wall already exists.

 

rather than go and find a unprotected spot on the border they find it more cost efficient to tunnel under the wall.

here is what mr trump has to fix in order to stop the border traffic in drugs.

in todays news the story is now the mexico will "reimburse" us the entire cost of the wall

 

that cost which was $8 billion during the campaign is now $15 -$25 billion - somewhere in that rough area -

 

what if we were to take $25 billion and put it to work on these snot nosed little bastards who are killing themselves with this ****?

The government is already spending that kind of money.  It's called "the war on drugs".   If they put half of what they spend in to treatment initiatives it could actually make an impact.

have you got a good reference for that?

 

i would love to hear how Bernie and Hillary proposed a wall along the entire border with mexico

 

were they going to get the mexicans to pay for it to? Or were they going with the reimbursement thing too?

Says Bernie and Hillary proposed a wall along the entire mexican/American border - provides proof that Clinton voted for border security measures as a senator.

He's giving you the alternative facts version. Lighten up on him it's tough bring a flying monkey.

Actually I never specified anything about the wall. I said that they proposed a wall and they both have.

you said bernie and hillary had proposed it

 

You are wrong. They voted for bills that proposed border security measures - they did not propose that legislation - they voted for it.

 

That legislation was not to build a wall along the entire US/Mexican border

^to clarify - about 900 miles of that border is underwater in the middle of the Rio Grande river.

 

YOu cannot build a wall in the middle of a river.

 

YOu cannot build a wall on the bank of a river.

 

You cannot build a wall on a flood plain of a river.

 

that wall will have to enclose hundreds of thousands of square miles of public and private property. 

 

Worst. Plan. Ever.
