Nancy should agree to plant a hedge on the border and be done with it 

 

The hedgerows of Normandy are infamous for the difficulty they presented advancing allied troops after D-Day. They were rather formidable obstacles. American tanks had to be fitted with enormous blades in order to clear openings for infantry and armor alike. That's where the term "rhino tank" comes from - the blades sort-of looked like horns on a rhinoceros.

Yes, but they might not grow in Arizona and New Mexico. 😛

Border security is so urgent but they never bothered to fund it in the last 2 years with GOP in charge of everything. It seems to me that there are not enough votes for a wall.  Donnie needs to take the L and move on.  

 

Although, he could've had a fully funded wall last year if he knew how to negotiate.

EVD logic:

-Can't travel to a war zone on government planes: Pelosi, Democrats

-No comment on use of government planes: Trump to a war zone, Melania for vacation, Lindsey Graham to Turkey

I expect that the result of this kerfluffle will be that the House committees will start in earnest investigating all aspects of the trump admin.  The subpoenas should start flying soon. The Senate wil likely be spending their time doing hearings on all the nominees for various positions.  The turnover has been very high and no need to not expect the high attrition rate to continue plus so many positions throughout government are not filled. Also its not like the indictments by Mueller are over.  It is just a matter of time when Stone and Don jr are behind bars.  Trump will have a laundry list of crimes detailed by the time the impeachment hearings begin.

here's a little preview of Trump's address this afternoon, assuming it's accurate. Due to Pelosi's pigheadedness I suppose it's about time someone stepped up and became the adult in the room. Hard to tell how she's going to react

You do realize Trump agreed to a deal to keep the government open back in December. He changed his mind when Rush and Ann Coulter called him out. Another thing Trump supporters forget is that Republicans controlled the government for 23 months and didn't bother to fund a wall. You look silly blaming Pelosi.

ive never understood why democrats, always opposed to trump's wall, are to blame for continuing to resist it after trump had congress in his hooves the last two years. Isn't it Ryan's or McConnell's fault for not pushing it through? And if not, why not?

Exaclty...this wasn't an issue until the Dems took control of the House. If Mitch and Paul didn't think it was a priority why should Nancy?

Shocking that the NAACP didn't care for Pence's comment...

For the love of God... fire your attorney if you want to have ANY legal defenses left at the end of this...

I mean this is malpractice. It's absolutely malpractice... and there is a lot to dissect here. 

 

A) He just admitted the existence of evidence from a case that has presumably been filed under seal, and THE BIGGEST DEAL HERE:

 

B) You likely only get tapes like this if either Donald Trump had a JDA with Michael Cohen, which he did not in the SDNY matter or if there is active discovery in a matter in which your client is the subject. Rudy likely just revealed that the President, or someone he has a JDA with - who would have had to have been a party to the Cohen conversation re: Russia (which limits it to DJTJr or Jared) - has been indicted already under seal. 

 

This is remarkable incompetence and is undermining all of the President's remaining defenses.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday let President Donald Trump enforce his policy barring certain transgender people from joining or staying in the military as the justices put on hold lower court rulings blocking the plan on constitutional grounds.
