It'll get tied up in the courts for sure.
It's cute how they think they can get construction started in as soon as 45 days.
What are the odds of Trump declaring a National Emergency to build his wall, and then refusing to end the government shutdown until the wall is finished?
How long is a piece of string? I'm sorry but that question is kind of pointless, you're asking someone to quantifiably measure how Donald Trump would react to events that have yet to transpire.
Entertaining the notion for a second that Trump would attempt that then there is no way the GOP would stand for it on account of the bad optics, the damage that would do to the country and the economy, and how it would keep increasing the chance that the democrats will take the Senate back in 2020 and thus stop them from being able to pass the legislation they want. No matter how much of their souls the Republicans have sold to Trump they're not going to fall on the sword for him unless they're getting something worthwhile out of it.
In my mind, Trump declaring a national emergency to build the wall would be him crossing the line into actual full-blown dictator, as opposed to a democratically elected dictator wanna-be.
We're talking about someone who stated he'd said Mexico would pay for the wall, affirmed that he'd said that Mexico would pay for the wall, then denied that he'd ever said that Mexico would pay for the wall. All in the space of one sentence.
WaPo and other sites are reporting that Trump is apparently looking to get disaster relief funds that should have gone to California to pay for his wall.
I'm not religious, but I wish I was, just to have the certainty that he would burn in hell for this.
I'm not religious either, so I'll just settle for wishing Trump somehow ends up in prison orange.
If this actually happens and Trump takes money California needs to deal with the various ass-reamings Mother Nature gives it on a regular basis to fund his precious penis monument, then I will hold every single death that happens in California due to these disasters over Trump's head.
It's not just California that's losing out either. Puerto Rico, Texas, and Florida need that money too.

. What’s really sad about this, is that Congress is a Coequal (and arguably supposed to be more powerful) to the executive.
It's almost like he's trying to kill GOP support in two of their key states.
I also guess him actually doing it is gonna does lot of discontent in the GOP, because he's sawing at their power.
I have a sick feeling in my stomach Trump is trying /hoping to cause a Reichstag fire by shutting down the government,or least he might cause one unwittingly and take advantage of it,essentially shutting down the Government has made security weaker from what I've gathered and it's disrupting their investigations and it could allow threats to slip through their fingers (a common cause of successful terrorist attacks is that while they were aware of them they acted too late,with 9 /11 it was agencies not sharing information they had,which lead to formation of a branch that meant that they had to work together)
source of the claim that the shut down is effecting security

Ocasio-Cortez had a great tweet about the double standard of the GOP:
We’ve seen in the past that Republicans are fine w/ their own members committing sexual assault. Yet they believe a nude should end a woman’s career? #Patriarchyinaction
God I love her.

And who's the SA and SS in that pipedream? Where's a military leadership tacitly to openly supporting such an act?
Sorry but that scenario is pure disasturbation. Hitler did not coup as a one-man-army and Trump has a far more chaotic house and none of the muscle

Then again Trump isn't smart enough to pull off something like that,it's accurate to call it disasturbatuion I guess

If anything, the military would counter-coup Trump and not assist him.
Which is still very unlikely and sounds like something out of Kaiserreich.
Disasturbation, I like that

Yeah, this thread seems to attract a few chronic disasturbators.
hey I did it once so I'm innocent
Although I think the sky is about to fall a piece just fell out of the sky and hit me!
Not only they're chronically disaburbating, they don't even clean up after they're done.
What is that tweet actually in reference to? Not that I don't believe the sentiment, but what specific woman's (or women's career) do they want to end?
Hers. There was a faked nude selfie "leaked" online to try to discredit AOC.
There was a picture big nude feet in a bathtub that some asshat claimed where nudes of AOC
of course they'd claim that,they deem feet offensive "Look bear feet,the horror!" little realising everyone has moved passed Victorian sensibilities in regards to how much leg is acceptable
If I recall right, the uproar was that the model's (not AOC's) breasts were visible in the reflection of the faucet on the tub. But a foot fetish forum noticed that the feet weren't hers, and I'm not making that up.
