TRUMP IS SHUT DOWN
Friends it seems that neither the Democrats nor Trump is going to budge. In that scenario, the Democrats win. The log jam right now is McConnell. He has to take the House Bills for a vote in the Senate. If they pass. Then McConnell has to send them to TRUMP. If he refuses to sign the bills or Vetoes them, then the Veto will have to be overridden to open the government. McConnell is the roadblock right now. I believe the Republican Senators are going to come back next week with a message to McConnell that the Shutdown cannot go on. And McConnell is going to have to act. McConnell is going to have to call TRUMP's hand and force him to sign the bills or not sign or veto them. Then the shutdown can be ended.
The Republicans were sent a very strong message in November. If they do not end the shutdown, they are finished in 2020. The Fat Cat Republican Senators cannot allow themselves to be replaced by AOC clones in 2020 due to the acts of TRUMPEE ZERO. AOC has targeted Republican money.
I believe that TRUMP is on the verge of a mental breakdown. For the first time in his life, he has hit a wall; the Nancy Pelosi wall. I think the fact that it is a woman who has grabbed him between the legs makes it impossible for him to back down. The Little Old Lady Speaker of the House shuts down the multi-billionaire TRUMP.
And all indications are that Mueller's report is going to hit within weeks. When that happens, I have no doubt there will be lawsuits coming out of the woodwork. It will take a year and more for them to creep up to the Supreme Court. There will be total chaos.
The real danger is that Russia and China are going to see an opening to grab whatever they want with the United States of America in chaos. And no one is going to trust Trump to step into a fight with Russia or China based on his two year performance as President.
In addition, TRUMP cannot resign. He has to hold on to his power to pardon or his kids are going to jail with him. All his assets are going to be attacked. HIs lines of credit are going to terminate. In a word, he loses everything as I have been saying for over two years.
I can absolutely assure you that the 800,000 government employees who are trapped in this shutdown will walkout or strike if they miss a second check. So for me the max time this Shutdown will go forward is 30 more days. But every day from now on is going to create more and more pressure.
TRUMP is out of cards. The Declare an Emergency fantasy has been shut down: taking money from Hurricane, Fire, etc relief is not an option.
My vision of TRUMP right now is a Fat Rat holed up with the pressure and heat building such that his head is about to explode.
TRUMP knows to lose this Wall fight is the equivalent of being castrated by Nancy Pelosi.
The only smart play for Trump is to announce that for the sake of those who are being hurt by the Shutdown he has to give up the wall. He can become the martyr for the people. HIs base will love him that he did all he could to fulfill his promises to them but Washington was just too much for the mighty TRUMP.
And then Trump needs to announce that he will not run for re-election in 2020. That will allow him to become a lame duck president and he can spend all his time defending himself against the Mueller and Democratic House investigations. He can hope he can clean up the mess in two years but that will not be possible. As soon as he leaves office, the indictments with start coming since he will have no immunity. Trump is finished.
You don't see him holding any more rallies do you. He gets it. But he is still praying for a miracle. The only miracle for him is a major war in the Middle East. The Christian Apocalypse Fantasy. Probably why Trump is pulling the troops out. I can assure you this, humanity will not survive WWIII. If the weapons of mass destruction don't make it happen directly the disruption in global trade will wipe out at least half the world population.
If the Russians nuke Paris, Berlin or London, they will immediately own Europe. The EU and NATO will fold like a house of cards. And the USA will sit back and do nothing. Trump is an isolationist remember. And the Chinese will take Japan and South Korea and all of SouthEast Asia within weeks.
The Republicans and Democrats are deadlocked, they will never come together on a global war. Think about it. Trump, or Pence or Nancy Pelosi as Commander in Chief of a global war. Who would want that?
Then the Russians and Chinese will divide up the Middle East.
I think that Putin wanted to make sure Hillary did not become President. I don't think he realized how stupid and incompetent Trump is. I dont think he thought Trump could bring America so far down that would leave Europe for the taking.
