Good Friday morning.
Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:
- The president delivers remarks on the national security and the humanitarian crisis on our southern border
- The president receives his intelligence briefing
- President Trump and the first lady depart Washington, D.C., en route to Mar-a-Lago
HOT DAMN: McCabe admits DERP STATERS tried to jettison Trump
Just wow, right? I mean some of us have suspected this all along. Yesterday we finally learned what sorts of insurance policies were cooked up by FBI agent “Andy’s Office” McCabe. Andy has a book coming out and it’s important to remember that he was fired for lying to the FBI and is currently under criminal investigation. I hope this monster rots in jail.
So “Andy’s office” told Scott Pelley of “60 Minutes” that he and some of his derp staters wanted to nullify the duly elected President Trump via the 25th amendment and claim Trump was unable to fulfill his duties as president because RUSSIA. Of course, this amendment is for a president who is IN A COMA or literally incapacitated, but this is the logic coming from the agenda-driven dummies now populating the FBI and DOJ. Their big concern is the fake Trump-RUSSIA story, and McCabe was worried that Trump had RUSSIAN help to win the election. Firing self-righteous yak James Comey was just evidence Trump had been co-opted by the RUSKIES. Sane people recognize that Trump can fire anyone he wants in the Executive Branch and that this move is in no way evidence of something illicit. But again, we have a bunch of sore loser, leftist dummies who are desperate to get rid of a president who has policy differences with the embedded political industry. EEEK! Trump knows RUSSIANS! Yeah, Trump did business is RUSSIA, he knows RUSSIANS. Sheesh.
As of today, the number of people indicted or pleading to treasonous collusion with RUSSIA is ZERO. After two years, not a single person has been busted for anything related to RUSSIA or working with RUSSIA to steal the election for Trump.
This is not looking good. I am skeptical of any and all racial incidents these days. So many groups have an interest in creating racial strife that the likelihood these incidents turn out to be a hoax is pretty high — like with those poor Covington boys. So this Jussie Smollet story did not sit right with me out of the gate. I used to live in Chicago. The city is not what I would call a MAGA-friendly city. The idea that some MAGA people were openly displaying their MAGA-ness while wandering around in subzero temperatures at 2 a.m. when they recognized an actor from the show “Empire” (is that a MAGA show?) and happened to have bleach and a noose…yeah…I don’t believe this. So it appears this story is falling apart and it looks like it may have been a publicity stunt for Smollet as his character was scheduled to be written off the show.

State of Emergency
It looks like Trump will have to call a state emergency to get some more funding for a wall on the southern border and the Dems will sue. Experts are still combing through the bill to find all the poison pills.
Legal scholars say it is unclear how such a step would play out, but they agree a court test would likely focus on whether an emergency actually exists on the southern border and on the limits of presidential power over taxpayer funds.
Trump is unhappy with a bipartisan border security bill that is going through Congress to avert another government shutdown, because it contains only a fraction of the funds he demanded for his promised border wall. The White House said Trump would sign the bill but declare a national emergency to try to obtain funds for the wall.
That will likely trigger a long legal fight possibly stretching into Trump’s 2020 re-election bid, and embolden critics who already accuse him of authoritarian tendencies and unpredictable swerves in policy-making.
The establishment is pretending that the president has never used his emergency powers. We will see how this plays out today and in the future.
