Maduro calls Trump Administration a gang of extremists.
Actually Obama was rough on Maduro as well. Calling Venezuela a threat to national security, which I assume started some trade sanctions, which have created the current situation. (I try to be fair and balanced)

Congress apparently has agreed to fund about 55 miles of wall. Trump hasn’t said he would sign it, but with his 52% approval now and with the most outspoken Dem saying to ban air travel and 98% of our current energy production and usage. (Solar and Wind now only produce less than 2% of our current energy) He is in a position to sign and play hard ball or not sign and play hardball.

National debt tops 22 trillion. Trump and Republican Congress are spending as much money as Obama and the Republicans did. Each quarter the gov reports record tax collections, yet the credit card balance still shows an increase of 1 trillion a year. Imagine when interest rates reach 7 percent instead of 2.5 or 3 percent.

The wall needs to be built, full stop.

If the traitorous Dems want to play games with national security, shut down the government.

We will be fine in Texas. Let the Dems freeze in the dark.

FYI to those that don't know: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... po-pay-it/
Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Tex.) proposed EL CHAPO Act may be President Trump’s solution for funding his wall on the southern border.

The Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (EL CHAPO) Act, first introduced by Cruz in April 2017 and reintroduced Tuesday, would divert billions in drug proceeds from cartel leaders to border security.

If passed, the out-of-the-box bill would seize any money forfeited in the criminal prosecution of Sinaloa cartel drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán and reserve it for securing the border, including construction of the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way to secure our southern border, and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons, and individuals,” Cruz said in a January news release. “By leveraging any criminally forfeited assets of El Chapo and other murderous drug lords, we can offset the cost of securing our border and make meaningful progress toward delivering on the promises made to the American people.”

Critics of Cruz’s bill have argued that the money seizures would not cover all of the construction costs for a border wall.

Trump called it an “interesting” idea on Wednesday.

“Anything Ted does is interesting. So that’s certainly an interesting one,” he said to reporters when asked about Cruz’s proposal.

With little more than a day left before funding expires for key parts of the federal government, the Senate voted on Thursday to approve a spending deal intended to avert a shutdown, paving the way for the House to take up the legislation later Thursday night.

The vote was 83 to 16. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a news conference earlier Thursday that the House may now vote earlier than planned as early as the 6 p.m. ET hour.

Lawmakers are racing the clock to get a bill to the President's desk ahead of a midnight Friday funding deadline. The White House said Thursday that President Donald Trump will sign the legislation, which does not meet his demand for $5.7 billion in border wall funding, but that the President also plans to invoke a national emergency.

Barr takes over as Attorney General. My questions will he investigate treason in the attempted coup of Trump? Will he investigate the corruption of the Clintons? Will he investigate the Russian collusion of the Clintons?

I say no because as far as I am concerned he is just one of the old swamp creatures.

Bill signed today has some poison pills.

Can’t be deported if your a potential home for an unaccompanied minor.

Thus will increase number of unaccompanied minors.

California has already sued over the emergency order.

Stock market up today.

I’m a sinner. Never a bible quoter. Except maybe here. Not much of a bible reader except maybe the first four books of the New Testament. Like the stories in the Old Testament, liked to stump my friends with a the question “what was David’s dowery to King Saul for his daughter’s hand?”, but not much of an Old Testament fan, till now.

Haven’t read this book of the Bible but want to now.

Nehemiah. Builder of the wall. Not a priest or a politician, but a builder, God sent to save Jerusalem from invaders.
He didn’t take the land and wealth normally given to the ruler as the people were already overburdened.
