  • Published on Jan 11, 2019
  • The President confirmed on Thursday that he will likely potentially certainly improbably possibly doubtfully absolutely declare a national emergency. For sure, maybe.

    I know Stephen must be crying on the inside, but on the surface, he's having way too much fun reporting on this.
    Also, with the way he puts imaginary props away, I was hoping he'd struggle and push that imaginary table off camera too.

    If it turns out all of our fears are true,Trump is found to have been knowingly and willingly working for the Russians as a Spy, could we legally prosecute those who placed the "βœ”" on the ballet, putting him in the oval office? It seems unforgivable. History books are watching us. These individuals disrespect the U.S.A. They disrespect the media, they Disrespect American politicians in general (95% of the "Right" side of the house) Disrespect Christianity and they disrespect the founders of this country along with all of us. Disturbing. If it all falls apart over this what needs to be done to prevent the rich and strong from influencing the minds of the poor and weak citizens in a democracy setting?? How could this have been prevented in a democracy??? Why is it taking so long for some serious, political or military intervention for them to save face? Where will all the partyless Republicans go?

  • Patrick Edgar Regini

    The Irony, is that for the last two decades, the general American
    sentiment was finally starting to come around a humbler self recognition
    and scrutiny of a more objective truth, and began talking about the
    immense harm our government has caused countries like Libya, Granada,
    Iraq, Sudan, Afghanistan supposedly against and contradicting our actual
    preference for our country, but when a President finally shows up
    seeking to disengage us from confrontation already in two places, North
    Korea and Syria, instead of helping and supporting, we ourselves start
    acting like hidden war mongrels pushing behind a meaningless facade of
    policy attacks. What was CNN expecting from ISIS? A "So long and thank
    you card" ??
    The collective hysteria the country is submerged in and mindless
    unanimity of all medias and voices against our President, makes it
    obvious that what is happening to America regarding this, is actually a
    sociological crisis of collective cultural psychological nature that has
    been building up for decades, now capitulating in this event that
    should best be defined as a social copy cat cultural syndrome collapse,
    and not one of individual political intelligence and serious analysis
    regarding our President, which should have us instead debating his
    contrasting unorthodox unpolished style, political aims and policies,
    and the pro's and con's of it. Instead this has become sheer high school
    hysteria, already boarding its way into Congress. Thanks for the
    contribution CNN, and the rest ! ;-)

    Trumptards are primarily senior citizens from the Baby Boomer generation. A generation that caused the most social strife in the country, raided the social security system, allowed the exodus of American jobs, and got us 22T in debt.
    It's no coincidence that we are polarized as a nation again. They cause the same thing in the 60's. They can't get along. This is their last effort to set the country ablaze again. All those drugs from the 60's warped their brains, which is why they are so easily manipulated by conspiracy theories.
    Thank God they are dying off. Their legacy is worthless. They're nothing like the Greatest WW2 generation, which was the best we ever had.

It is sickening for to watch this video as this man takes his internet power and hates on our country and turns America against itself.

    you know it used to be the old budget stayed in effect when a new budget couldn't be agreed upon. we should ask ourselves - how were INDIVIDUALS allowed to gain so much control over the American system. not even talking about democrats or republican now. but presidents have been given unbelievable power over foreign and domestic policy. given absolute war powers, trade decisions, and, with a flick of the pen, through "executive orders," can dictate domestic policy. and by simply refusing to sign a piece of paper they can hold our ENTIRE nation hostage and shut down the govt. and in congress a "majority leader" in the house and senate can kill legislation by just denying it a vote! did you ever vote for these extraordinary powers be given to just 3 people? or to allow oligarchs to buy our politicians and dictate policy through graft and bribery? THIS WHOLE SYSTEM IS ILLEGAL!

    Actually, this has always been on my mind, and I'm amazed that this hasn't come up yet for Trump. He's so fixated on immigrants coming into the country illegally and yet, he's FIXATED solely on MEXICO, as if a WALL can stop them (as if 'these people' are really taking jobs that we want).
    I could care less, maybe because this hasn't affected me personally or anyone I know; but if he's making this argument on illegal immigration: we have CHINESE people coming into the country (legally) but they've found a way to do it through a loop-hole in our system: vis-a-vis if you're born here you're automatically a citizen. I'll be honest, I feel a little icky about it. It feels like something is being taken advantage of, but what can you do? Everyday there's like 10 babies (probably more) being born here and gaining national citizenship and I'm sure it's not just from China, but this one I know is a huge thing over there. Every family over there wants their child to seek better Education overseas and one way of doing that is slipping them into the country at birth providing them with a hidden U.S. passport that can be used later in life.
    So we're putting our attention on Mexico when China businesses are buying up everything in Hollywood and rich Chinese families are buying real-estate in our land? Do you see how I used "our land" hahaha, that would get his crowd rolling for months. I'm saying this to prove my argument, or why listen to me?
    I got nothing against China, I think these families whom are doing that are SMART and they have all the right to do this since there's really nothing stopping them (except if you're caught with having two-passports then you'll be fined and imprisoned); so I feel for them for taking that risk, but it's hardly enforced. They really want their child to have a better education so as an option in the future, U.S. is highly sought after. Good for them :)
    But I'm amazed at how this has NEVER come up... I mean if his supporters are backing him primarily for this wall (which is really all that he can offer) imagine how his supporters would feel about Trump for never talking about this concern with wider implications where highly-educated people whom have lived most of their life outside of this country (because really it's not their home) will be coming over in the near future and taking head-of-state/well-paying/high-tech industry jobs from citizens whom have lived here their entire lives... I mean, someone should just beat him at his own game and make him look silly by picking a better fight against immigration. I've never worded this to anyone before, I'm really only speaking from the knowledge that I know and it's not much, but the foundation is there for this to be a concern for anyone who cares. Me, personally, I think the world belongs to everyone and we should live without borders, but... ce la vie.
