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.

“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.”

Welcoming hundreds of migrants into El Paso. Clearly not a wall man, but we knew that. The phony Mexican made sure that ICE followed the law. And boosted his national optics.
Got a long way to go from $16 million, but it’s only been a few weeks. Lots more time to come…
Even better, we could just send the president a reminder: a copy of this.

“I get it that a lot of our readers didn’t like the Standard for its resolute anti-Trump position. They would have been better served had they emulated the Wall Street Journal editorial page, which I think has found the sweet spot of praising and defending Trump when he deserves it, and criticizing him for his manifest defects—sometimes in the same editorial or op-ed column.”
I ignored the anti-Trumpism in favor of the book reviews and features and I’ll miss the magazine.
That’s what the country needs, after two years of courtly, feckless, under-the-radar Jeff Sessions. You’d certainly have to think so the way the Dims are after Whitaker to recuse himself from the Mueller hoax, which he reportedly won’t do. Instead he will take over for Rosenputz.
We need an AG to also take on the Dim election fraud ongoing in Florida, Georgia and Arizona; Felonia’s emails which should have gotten her an indictment; and the Clapper-Brennan-FBI-DOJ collusion in spying on the Trump campaign. Which the Mueller hoax-probe was designed to cover up.
The alleged unconstitutionality of Whitaker’s appointment is just that, alleged, while the law is clear: Whitaker can serve as acting AG for 210 days, though the clock resets once Trump nominates someone to serve in the position permanently. If Whitaker wants to be nominated he surely knows what to do.

UPDATE: We’ll soon find out. President Trump says he’s letting Whitaker decide how to handle Mule Face and his witch hunt.
