from other thread.

Wall is tied to Human Trafficking.

Human trafficking issue , has many things in common with abortion as far a political tool. Both real, not good things...but mostly intangible as far as polticians ability to effect. Value is they can and do use ro spread fear with innuendos & demonize the opponent. (liberals)

Also the Wall/human trafficking is tied to keeping the Storm Qanon loons at the ready - because they beleive HRC, Soros and Co run a child sex slave cabal, and are trying for One World Govt ruled by them. ...Crazy talk, I know, but this is same as Obama is a marxist baby-killer talk and it has way of filtering from the conservative extreme fringe to regular conservatives. My how the gap there between extreme and regular cons has closed.

Was this one of those "$1 down and you can take it home" deals? And they forgot the dollar.

“None of us are willing to go through this again,” said Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, referring to a half-dozen Republicans who voted on Thursday for a Democratic measure to reopen the government for two weeks. “And it’s not just a few of us. There are a great many in our conference that feel pretty strongly.”

But the erosion of Senate Republican support — fueled by the increasingly damaged economy and worsening poll numbers — perhaps more than anything is what pushed Trump to reverse course.

On Thursday night, after the pair of failed Senate votes and a tense caucus meeting that demonstrated there could be a large GOP jailbreak if the shutdown dragged on, Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) quietly agreed that it was time to find a way out.


Some hints like this are emerging that Senate republicans were close to providing a veto-proof majority for legislation to open the government without his wall fantasy funds.

Good news for America if true.

I told you that this will end with the whole world hating Trump, except for the small group of diehards who have bought into everything totally

Trump claimed women were gagged with tape. Then Border Patrol tried to find some evidence.
An internal email, sent two weeks after Trump started making the claim, asked agents for “any information” about what Trump was describing.

Quote:
Vox’s source indicated that they and others in their sector hadn’t heard anything that would back up Trump’s claims, but wasn’t sure if agents in other sectors had provided information. However, no one from the Trump administration has come forward to offer evidence for the claim, either before or after the internal Border Patrol email was sent. (Customs and Border Protection did not respond to a request for comment.)

No essentially. Trump is a terrorist. Full stop.

Oh god. If this is all true about the movie itself, I believe it 100%

First, they're demonstrably false. There's nothing especially amazing about smugglers' vehicles; there's no evidence at all of prayer rugs being found in the dirt by the border (in fact, the whole idea is kind of silly); and experts have marveled at how bizarre Trump's claims are about women tied up with tape.

Second, each of these appeared in a recent fictional movie.

No, seriously. As Rachel noted on the show last night, there's a movie called Sicario: Day of the Soldado, which was released last summer, and which included a woman being tied up with tape, smugglers driving vast vehicles, and officials finding prayer rugs in the dirt near the border.

1) Sicario 2: Day of the Soldado ruled
2) It ruled because it was clearly absurd and stupid.
3) Is it worth pointing out that the woman who was duct taped in a car was the daughter of a billionaire drug kingpin who was kidnapped so the CIA agent's rogue asset could get to the kingpin?
