Good morning, and Happy New Year to you all!

Trump apparently spent New Year's Eve without Melania, and devoted a fair amount of time and energy contradicting himself on Twitter.

LOL ROTFMOL LOL

Quote:
First, he promised: “MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL.” Then, in the next tweet 11 minutes later, he attacked the Democrats for what he predicted will be their decision to allocate “NOTHING to border security, namely the Wall.”

MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL through the many billions of dollars a year that the U.S.A. is saving through the new Trade Deal, the USMCA, that will replace the horrendous NAFTA Trade Deal, which has so badly hurt our Country. Mexico & Canada will also thrive - good for all!

The Democrats will probably submit a Bill, being cute as always, which gives everything away but gives NOTHING to Border Security, namely the Wall. You see, without the Wall there can be no Border Security - the Tech “stuff” is just, by comparison, meaningless bells & whistles...

Trump's Ag Department is giving American farmers 12 BILLION dollars to help them with lost markets from tariffs.

Except, they're not. The US government shutdown could delay subsidies for farmers already ravaged by Trump's trade war (Business Insider). The Department of Agriculture is one of the agencies shuttered.

Compared to what the Steele Dossier describes, Trump's Emoluments Clause violations case is nursery school play.

I hope that Mueller's case is bigger than some Emoluments violations. Hmm

Considering who Mueller has had plead guilty so far, the evidence is supporting that Mueller is working towards a Steele Dossier angle, more than an Emoluments Clause angle. Hmm , smile

Sigh. The headlines were an homage to Shlack. The implication is, Trump doesn't own the Trump Hotel, the Saudis do... Trump really doesn't "own" much. He just slaps his name on ANY old thing for a fee. In fact, Trump's D.C. hotel is owned by the United States, the property is just leased. In further fact, it kinda begs the question, what right does he have to exclude anyone from visiting, or even protesting, there, since it is public land.?..

Remember, Al Capone was under went numerous investigations, the one that got him was an investigation about money. Maybe the same thing will happen. Though it may be a race between Mueller and the NY AG. Just saying...
