Speaker Pelosi wasn’t expecting retaliation for her “request” to reschedule (cancel) the president’s State of The Union address to both houses of congress, probably out of fear he would blame the Dims for the shutdown.
So she was surprised when President Trump canceled her seven-day military flight junket to Afghanistan. Her Dim colleagues and their lapdog news media called the president childish. Naw. He’s just a Republican who fights back.
(Great snap of all their luggage returned to Pelosi’s office. Yuk.)
If Trump declares one to get the Southern border wall built, it will be the 59th declared since Congress passed the National Emergencies Act in 1978. Thirty one are still in force.
Of course the Dims would go to the courts to fight Trump and try to legislate their way out of it. Remains to be seen.

A warship doomed by ‘confusion, indecision, and ultimately panic’ on the bridge.
The Navy she has become a sloppy ship. The Fitz was the second destroyer hit by a
tanker merchant ship, this time in broad daylight, in three months in 2017.

UPDATE: “There was debris everywhere,” Fort said under oath of the destroyer’s Combat Information Center. “Food debris, food waste, uneaten food, half-eaten food, personal gear in the form of books, workout gear, workout bands, kettlebells, weightlifting equipment, the status boards had graffiti on them. I’d never seen a CIC like that in my entire time in the Navy,” the surface warfare officer of more than 25 years recollected.
The latest Leftist vigilante group in Austin is a small UT collective of antifa. They’re doxxing (publicizing names, addresses and phone numbers) every conservative or temporary passerby they can find on campus. Up to and including trying to get the working targets fired. None reported so far among the thirty victims of this liberal lynching.
“This is a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul,” Trump said. “Women and children are the biggest victims by far of our broken system … this is the tragic reality of uncontrolled migration on our southern border.”
An example, apparently, of what the Dims (Pelosi) called his malice and CNN (multiple personalities) called his lies.
“Trump said his proposal to Congress has both medical and other resources to deal with the flow of migrants, as well as law enforcement, and a $5.7 billion ‘steel barrier,’ which he said was a concession to Democrats, rather than a concrete wall.”
