House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday did not guarantee the State of the Union would happen on the Jan. 29 date it was originally scheduled for, even though the White House, Republicans and Democrats struck a deal to pass a three-week stop-gap measure to fund the federal government.

“The State of the Union is not planned now. Get that? What I said to the president is that when the government is open we will discuss a mutually agreeable date,” Pelosi said when asked by The Daily Caller at a Friday press briefing.

Keep being an obstinate 'ol bitty Nancy, I'm sure it is gonna work out for you! Big Grin

Why would Trump care when the SOTU is so long as it is anytime in the next 3 weeks. The more she stalls for no good reason the more he can beat her up in the meantime and the more potential voters realize what an empty pantsuit she is.

When I first saw in passing that the President had cut a deal, I thought, “Oh, no!” About ten seconds later I thought “Three weeks! Gee, I have to wait three weeks to see what he has up his sleeve? Oh well, it is going to be fun when he springs the trap, even if we do have to wait for it.”

Someone said quite a while ago (I think it might have been Para, but I can’t be sure) that the secret was to keep an even keel and not get too excited. Definitely the right approach.

Yes, with an establishment RINO you would know at this point they caved. That ain't Trump.

I enthusiastically voted for him as a candidate...but I didn't "trust" him since he was an independently wealthy billionaire,that goes both ways, will he keep his word, was it all an act just to get the nomination?

Now, I trust him, he is doing all he can to fulfill the campaign promises he made and has had staggering success. I don't agree with everything, but on balance it has been 90% positive progress and he has doggedly pursued policy that is good for the country while facing withering fire on every front.

FBI = Thugs
Top to bottom, can never trust such a despicable organization.

Such a bias organization, no attempt whatsoever to apply equal application of the law.

29 FBI Agents and a CNN crew to raid Roger Stones home.
Biggest danger for an FBI agent there was the other FBI agents there.

Gee, I Guess Now I’m Going To Have To Be Happy With Only 90% Of The Stuff I Wanted Trump To Do

Chill.

Just chill. The wailing and gnashing of teeth on the hardcore conservative side over Trump’s delaying action – really, a hudna – in the battle for the wall is way over the top and typically overdramatic.

Trump’s caved-in!

We’re doomed!

Pelosi annihilated him with her master stratagems and it’s all over for conservatism!

Oh please. Lighten up, Francises – and many of you are my pals. But you need this bucket of cold water. What happened Friday doesn’t matter.

Not at all.

Well, that’s not quite accurate. It could matter, if you decide to keep doing exactly what Nancy Pelosi wants you to do, freaking out. That’s why she employed her brilliant stratagem of just saying “No” – since you’re upset, let me point out that this is sarcasm.

It wasn’t brilliant – it was obvious. She was counting on you to set up as a do-or-die test for Trump over something where she and Chuck Schumer held a veto. Thanks to Paul Ryan and the Fredocons, the House belongs to the Democrats, and the Senate can’t pass anything without 60 votes and we have 52 plus Mitt. So Trump can’t build a wall without their OK, and the emergency power thing is no panacea – it will last about 30 seconds before some Obama judge enjoins it.

You were going to let your support for Trump be entirely contingent on the Democrats’ approval? What were you thinking?

You weren’t, and I get it. You’re emotional. No one has been used and abused worse than conservative voters. We’ve been lied to by decades by pseudo-conservatives who promised to do what we wanted but never did it even when they could. Sure, they could always manage to do the stuff the donors wanted – how about a new tax cut! – but the stuff we really wanted? Nah.

So I get that you have trust issues. You should – you’ve been burned so often you’re crispy. But now we crispycons have a guy in the White House who actually wants to do the stuff but can’t, as opposed to the establishment jerks who didn’t want to but could have. So spazzing out makes zero sense.

Get a hold of yourself. Let the “Ahoy!” crowd read from the Democrat narrative memo. You shouldn’t. You should chill.

So we lost this round? So what? We’ve lost before, and we’ll lose again. This is for the long-haul folks. It’s a marathon, not a sprint. There’s no magic wand where one term of Vitamin D cures a century of progressive pathology.

Trump’s instincts have been right all along. We doubted he could win. He did. We doubted he would actually remake the courts. He has. We doubted he’d fight for the wall, but he did, and he paid a price. Who else would have withstood the heat this long? Who would have even picked the fight?

Mitt? Jeb!? Chet the Unicorn?

Name the Republican you want to replace him with. Who’s the guy who is going to stand up to the cultural fascists like Trump? Who’s going to fight for you harder?

What’s his name?

***mumble mumble mumble***

I CAN’T HEAR YOU! WHAT’S HIS NAME!

Nobody.

I’m not ready to even accept that we’ve lost the battle – let’s see what happens in three weeks. But what was the better plan for the shutdown skirmish? Keep it going? Friday morning was bringing reports of airport shutdowns. That might have made it real to the Normals. See, we political types were watching and caring, while they weren’t. But it looked like they were about to start. Maybe Trump’s instincts, which you have to admit have been remarkable (Just ask Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit after you pump a few cups of joe into her lie-hole to sober her up), told him it was time to cut his losses. Remember Alinsky Rule No. 7?

“A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”

Did any of you see any indication at all that the shutdown tactic was about to deliver us victory, that it was not becoming a drag? Me neither. Cut your losses. Pull back here, counter-attack there.


We’ve been attacking for two years, racking up conservative triumphs you’ve never experienced unless you were one of us who was of age during the Reagan years. Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh – what other GOP president would have held course and made them happen? Trump’s remaking the courts and rebuilding our military. He gutted Obamacare and Obama’s regulations. He’s pulling us out of useless wars, useless agreements with Iran, and useless climate change scams. He’s got clarity on Israel, on the garbage mainstream media, and America’s useless elite.

Remember that in the days before the shutdown truce, we had won a huge victory over the garbage mainstream media by exposing their lies about the Covington kids and the drum-banging Frigidaireborne ranger. Buzzfeed first had its lies about the president exposed and then had to make massive lay-offs. HuffPo Opinion died. Even the SWAT raid on Roger Stone turned out to have zilch to do with collusion, as usual.


We’re winning, politically and culturally. Yeah, they’re fighting back, except that’s what opponents do, and opponents sometimes score. But if this was baseball, we and Trump would be batting .900, yet some of you can’t accept net success. It’s like some of you are only comfortable losing, but that’s not your fault. Thanks to the useless GOP establishment, you’re just used to losing.

Think about it – what do Nancy and Chuck want you to do right now? They want you to say “Gosh, Trump didn’t get the wall yet so I’m going to stop supporting him” and to give up in despair.

Maybe you should do as I do, and make it a rule not to do what Chuck and Nancy want you to do.

So calm down. Don’t be manipulated. If you want the wall, keep backing the only possible politician who has any chance at all of delivering one. Will he? Maybe. Maybe not. But if you don’t support him, your chances drop to zero.

We lost a fight. We have not lost the war. We only lose if we do what Nancy and Chuck want and turn on the President.

Chill.

Now, if you want to see what will happen if we abandon Trump like the Democracts are trying to manipulate us into, check out my latest novel, Wildfire, and my earlier installments People’s Republic and Indian Country. We better get out heads right and look at the long-term fight instead of wetting ourselves every time stuff doesn’t go our way. We’re going to lose a lot of fights before we win this war.

I consider his presidency a success by just getting Gorsuch and Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. Just wait until they finally release that RBG is gone.

Totally agree! (I don't know that RBG is dead, but I'm pretty sure that if she isn't she will be soon. The ensuing fight over her replacement might be epic. I've got to buy more popcorn. . . .)

That wasn't Wray or Mueller out there wearing plate carriers and cammie jammies carrying M4s...that was the standup, honest "rank & file" agents doing a pre-dawn raid on a political operative.
It looked like the Mexican Marine raid on El Chapo ferchristsakes.

And the DOJ isn't going to do a God Damn thing about this blatant publicity stunt nor rein in other pending clusterfucks. Mad Mad

And you are absolutely right lbj, it's their fault not ours that MANY people feel this way.

Mueller and the FBI sent a message with today's televised raid.

The deep state is still in control and there's not a damn thing that is going to change that.

That is their real message.

That is absolutely ridiculous. Looks like they sent in Seal Team 6 to arrest a 66 year old man that they could have just told to turn himself in. Instead they manufacture this nonsense and leak it to CNN so they can be onsite with cameras rolling. Perfect illustration of what this really is.



I hope Pres T gets in their face and demands to know who scripted that show.

The more they try and act like the KGB, kicking doors in, arresting political opponents, the more they act like a tyrannical government of some shithole third world nation, it will have the opposite effect.

Would seem some FBI agents should have some stories to tell.

Have any stood up and contacted their Senator or Representative?

No

Do they not have an obligation to report misconduct and abuse with in their organization?

Surely the rank and file can see what they are being asked to do is excessive force and abuse of authority.

If "rank and file" continue to accept this corruption they are just as corrupt. You can't tell me there isn't another good paying state or local LE job that wouldn't hire a trained federal agent. They stay and keep their mouths shut because they value money more than morals or the law.

There are NO "good FBI agents". None. Grassley even said if they come forward he would protect them. Crickets.

They are the enforcement arm of the DNC and a corrupt Department of inJustice.
