PELOSI V. TRUMP SHUTDOWN.
Friends I think it is good that Pelosi not invite Trump to give his State of the Union Message until after the government reopens. As far as the location, Trump can give his speech anywhere. Maybe one of the capital's men's room.
There are all kinds of little games both can play but we have to consider one major factor, TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT. Americans really are not looking to Pelosi to make everything work, but TO Trump. A failure to open the government is a TRUMP failure because he is the top politician in the land anD is supposed to have all the answers. With regards to the shutdown, he is a failure.
And the next one to blame would be Mitch McConnell blocking the work of Pelosi. So we have the President and the Leader of the Senate v. Pelosi and that is 2 against 1. And that is the 2 not being able to budge the one. That is really sadly funny.
The government's business is not being taken care of. That is the reality.
Why? Because Trump, the minority president, is trying to push a minority agenda of building a wall between the US and Mexico which the majority does not support.
From all the commentary that I have read, I seem to agree with the position that until Americans are inconvenienced, not just the 800,000 Federal employees who Trump has designated as collateral damage in his game against all Americans, until Americans are inconvenienced personally by the shutdown it will continue.
Right now I would say the airports are a weak point. When people deal with not being able to easily move about, that will be the beginning. The Federal employees need to have a 800,000 person sick out. Right now they have the real power to break the deadlock.
The whole system is under pressure. It is hard to tell where the cracks are going to form that brings sanity to this nonsense.
For me as the Independent Maverich candidate for President 2020 I would have a priority to stop Federal Employees from ever being pawns again. I would do that simply by allowing unpaid employees to not show up for work.
Mueller is coming for Trump. More and more each day more and more little leaks are coming from Mueller so I have to agree he is about ready to end his investigation and it looks more and more like there is collusion and obstruction personally on the part of the President. In the end Trump is going to lose big. But right now he is trying to see if he can break the system.
The long term problem is whether the Democrats are going to be able to field anyone who can beat Trump in 2020. I will tell you this, I will handicap all the present Democratic candidates such that none will be able to beat Trump. This is just my position that we need an Independent not party affiliated president, which would be me, to end any future shutdowns or gridlocks in the government. All these would be Democratic Presidential Candidates are my opponets so fair game to my attacks for their lack of Qualifications.
The 2020 Presidential election is going to be about Qualifications of the Candidate not the backing of the corrupt political parties.
All Americans will be required to view what has happened with Trump as president. And then they have to decide what parts of the Trump presidency are intolerable for the future.
I have never been a doom and gloom person, but my feeling right now is that within 20 years it will be obvious that the planet will be doomed. Climate change brought on mostly by fossil fuels is going to terminate about 3 billion human beings. Areas of the world are going to return to the stone age. I do not think there will be a nuclear war. There will really be nothing to fight over because the global economy will have collapsed along with the majority of the internet. The only thing to fight over will be food. So war for the fertile ground, if global warming leaves any fertile ground. Famine will bring disease. Disease will bring death because the supplies of medicines will be just a trickle.
We are at a watershed moment in human history. And right now I am betting against the planetary virus known as homo sapiens.
For me there is one evil man at the center of the deconstruction of America and that is Donald Trump and those who put him in office and support him and generally speaking that means all the Republicans.
It would be interesting that the Democrats made big inroads into the government and never got to do anything due to the shutdown. Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump those are the traitors, they are the enemies of America.
