Donald Trump threatens to use the military to build the wall if the Congress doesn’t approve funding

December 11, 2018

  From browsing the internet after work tonight it would appear to me as if the media considers the big news of the day the notion that the Democrats “tricked” Donald Trump into admitting it would be his fault if there is a government shutdown over border wall funding.

  To me that is not really news at all because the President has said time and time again that he is willing to shut the government down if he does not get the funding for his wall. Of course he has made this threat before and backed down so whether or not he actually follows through this time is another story. But this time he might have a “Plan B” if he decides it is political suicide to shut down the government; the President today said if he cannot get funding approved through the Congress he would have the military build the wall using funding which is already appropriated.

  Here is what he tweeted earlier today:

  The President has made this threat once before and has not followed up on it so we will have to wait and see if he is serious this time or if he is just trying to leverage military funding to try to get the Congress to move on this. 

  Personally I believe he is fed up with trying to deal with getting border funding and is serious about using the military and it is going to be interesting to see what happens if he does it. You know as well as I do that somebody will sue challenging the Commander-in-Chief’s authority to direct the military and judging my the past they will find a judge to stop him.

  Of course this means that Mexico still will not be paying for the wall but I think most people understand that statement was made in the heat of the moment and never really had a chance of coming to fruition, but that will not stop the liberals from having fun with what they will call another “lie.”

    I am just as worried about the other nonsense that is percolating in the budget. Ryan has a bunch of Christmas gifts lined up to fill his stocking for his next gig. More Green cards and various types of visas for our foreign friends for one.

    Declare Marshall Law, lock up all federal judges, than dig medieval style moats 100′ deep and 100′ wide, fill them with boric acid and then dump in a million green cards. Problem solved. No wall needed. And to be sure border crashers of another ilk are stopped saturate the ground with pig’s blood. Bingo!!!!
    Now I’m going to take my medication….
