Is it the logan act which prevents this? Anyway, the wall is a trojan horse to get troops on the street. Best get prepping Mr Peters because when he's out the dem POTUS will be targeting people like you.

    Matthew 11:28-30

    28 And then Jesus said unto them “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”



    If Jesus were to come back today Repeater and his ilk would denounce him as a Muslim commie. There’s a special place in hell for people like that.

    Most likely they would be taking shots at him as he tried to cross the border.

    You're another moron who doesn't read what you post. No wonder you keep posting such utter rubbish.


    A better unemployment rate doesn't tell the whole story though. The demographic still lags behind the national unemployment rate, which remained unchanged in November at 3.7 percent.



    Compared to other demographics, blacks in America still have the highest rate of joblessness, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics jobs report out Friday.


    Overall job growth slowed down last month, amid fears that economic growth is losing steam. The U.S. economy added 155,000 jobs in November, expectations of 198,000 jobs expected by economists polled by Dow Jones. Average hourly earnings also fell short of expectations.


    A different gauge, sometimes called the "real unemployment rate" and includes discouraged workers and those holding part-time jobs for economic reasons, rose from 7.4 percent to 7.6 percent in November.

    Meanwhile baldy orange cunto's shut down is now the longest. I'm surprised he's not bragging about it on twitter. "Nobody does shutdowns like me, believe me".

    Here's the latest on the impact of the shutdown:



    • 800,000 federal workers who are either furloughed or working without pay missed their first paychecks this week.
    • The U.S. economy has lost about $3.6 billion so far because of the shutdown, according to estimates by S&P Global Ratings.
    • Three federal employee organizations have sued the Trump administration over having to work without pay.
    • Hundreds of TSA agents have called in sick to at least four major airports after being forced to work without pay, and the Miami airport was forced to close one terminal early for 3 days due to TSA absences.
    • FBI agents said the shutdown could be a threat to national security.
    • The Food and Drug Administration has suspended all routine inspections of domestic food-processing facilities.
    • Emergency aid for farmers hurt by the trade war between the U.S. and China could be delayed.

    Well there's a surprise....

    The National Border Patrol Council has been an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall along the southwest border, going so far as to back a government shutdown in a play to get lawmakers to fund the project.

    But the council, which represents non-supervisory Border Patrol agents, hasn’t always taken such a favorable position on the wall.

    In
    a page recently deleted from its website, the union said it “disagrees with wasting taxpayer money on building fences and walls along the border as a means of curtailing illegal entry into the United States.”

    The statement, posted in 2012 under the NBPC’s media FAQ page,
    was deleted on or after Jan. 4, according to a VICE Motherboard review of Wayback Machine archives. It describes border barriers as only a “speed bump” that don’t solve the problem of people entering the country via legal means and staying past the date they are required to leave, commonly known as visa overstays.


    “People who want to come to the United States to obtain employment will continue to go over, under, and around the walls and fences that are constructed,” the NBPC said.

    Not sure if that's sarcasm, or actual surprise. I am actually surprised that they did a 180 and now support the wall and the shutdown.

    We are witnessing presidential malpractice on a towering scale. The first death by food poisoning due to uninspected meat, the first person murdered because she could not access a domestic violence shelter, the first reservation resident to die from lack of available medical care, will be the sole responsibility of master dealmaker Trump. Risking the lives of ordinary citizens in pursuit of a narrow political strategy to satisfy the nationalist desires of a sliver of the population is the legal definition of “reckless endangerment.”

    Trump vents fury over Russia stories and again threatens national emergency

    Donald Trump has strongly denied the stunning claim that he was secretly working on behalf of Russia and again threatened to declare a national emergency to fund a border wall.
    In 20-minute live phone interview with Fox News on Saturday night, he described as an “insult” the New York Times story that alleged the FBI launched an investigation into whether the he was acting as a Russian asset, against his own country’s interests.
    Trump said the story, which claimed the investigation opened after Trump fired the FBI director James Comey in May 2017, was “the most insulting article ever written”.

    “If you read the article you’ll see that they found absolutely nothing,” he said during

    “I think [the story] was a great insult and the New York Times is a disaster of a paper. It’s a very horrible thing they said.”

    Citing anonymous sources, the Times said the investigation was part counterintelligence, to determine whether Trump was knowingly or unknowingly working for Moscow and posed a threat to national security. It was also part criminal, to ascertain whether Trump’s dismissal of Comey constituted obstruction of justice.
    The
    FBI effort was soon absorbed into the special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and alleged collusion between Trump’s campaign and Moscow, the Times reported, adding that it was unclear if the counterintelligence aspect is still being pursued.
    The president again called Comey a “liar” and claimed the entire Russiainvestigation was a “terrible hoax”.


    “Everybody knows it. It’s really a shame because it takes time; it takes effort. Everybody knows there’s no collusion,” he said.
    Trump repeated baseless claims that the FBI mishandled an investigation into his election rival, Hillary Clinton. The president insisted that he had been far tougher on Russia than any other president, repeating claims he tweeted earlier on Saturday.
    “I have been FAR tougher on Russia than Obama, Bush or Clinton,” he tweeted. “Maybe tougher than any other President. At the same time, & as I have often said, getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. I fully expect that someday we will have good relations with Russia again!”
    Trump’s warm relationship with the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, has long set alarm bells ringing. The day after firing Comey, he hosted Russia’s foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, in the Oval Office – and disclosed intelligence from an Israeli counterterrorism operation. At a summit in Helsinki last summer, Trump appeared to side with Putin over his own intelligence agencies on the question of election interference.
    On Saturday, the Washington Post reported that Trump took the notes from of a 2017 meeting with Putin in Hamburg from his own interpreter. Citing current and former US officials, the paper also said Trump instructed the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials.
    Asked why he would not release the conversations, Trump said: “I would. I don’t care ... I’m not keeping anything under wraps. I couldn’t care less.”
    In December the president startled his own national security officials by suddenly announcing the withdrawal of troops from Syria, widely seen as handing a strategic victory to Russia and prompting the defense secretary James Mattis to quit. He also bizarrely endorsed the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan in the 1980s.
    The House intelligence committee chairman, Adam Schiff, said in a statement he did not “comment on the specifics of the New York Times report” but said “counterintelligence concerns about those associated with the Trump campaign, including the president himself, have been at the heart of our investigation since the beginning”.
    Advertisement
    His committee, he said, “has a responsibility to the American people to ensure that the president is working in our national interest and is not motivated by any other factor”.



    Holed up at the White House, Trump turned to the other subject dominating US politics: the partial government shutdown which, going into its 23rd day, is now the longest in history, eclipsing the record set under Bill Clinton.
    He called on the Democrats to do a deal and again threatened to declare a national emergency if they don’t “come to their senses”.
    “I have the absolute right to call a national emergency,” he said. “Other presidents have called national emergencies for lesser importance than this. I’d rather see the Democrats come back from their vacation and act. It would take me 15 minutes to get a deal done and everyone could go back to work.”


    Trump is demanding $5.7bn towards his long-promised wall on the US-Mexico border, claiming it will solve a humanitarian and national security crisis. Democrats, who control the House of Representatives, have passed measures to reopen the government without funding the wall, which they regard as an expensive, impractical and immoral response to a manufactured crisis. The result is a political stalemate that leaves a quarter of the government unfunded.
    About 800,000 workers missed pay cheques on Friday. The House and Senate voted to give federal workers back pay whenever the federal government reopens, then left Washington for the weekend.
    With polls showing Trump getting most of the blame, the president is toying with the idea of declaring a national emergency, bypassing Congress and funding the wall from existing federal revenue. Republicans are divided on the move and it would be certain to face legal challenges.

    I expect he'll declare war on someone before long just to distract from all this.
    A wartime president always gets elected.
    "In my professional assessment as an intelligence officer, Trump has a reflexive, defensive, monumentally narcissistic personality, for whom the facts and national interest are irrelevant, and the only thing that counts is whatever gives personal advantage and directs attention to himself."

    Disgraceful Republicans!

    The House of Representatives recently passed a bill to make sure the approximately 800,000 federal employees out of work will get back pay for the shutdown.
    411 House members voted for the bill, passing it with overwhelming support. However, seven House Republicans — all of whom are drawing an annual Congressional salary of at least $174,000 — disagreed.

    I suspect he's been told that old adage and will be seriously considering it.
    He'll need one hell of a reason though, and unless the Skull and Bones boys support it, it won't happen.

    Couldn't help myself. Just watched The Good Shepherd last night.
    I also recall, Dubbya was a bonesman...You know the guy in charge, reading to kids on 9/11 and continuing reading after having been told of the attack.

    Don't bring Opus Dei into it...it's incongruous in this matter.

    That's not surprising either.

    It’s also worth mentioning that forcing people to work without pay is slavery, which has been outlawed in the United States since the ratification of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in the mid-19th century.
