Stephen King Haunts Trump With A Biting Question About New Border Wall Claims

The White House claims construction on President  Donald Trump ’s border wall is now underway.

We are building the wall !” the White House tweeted on Tuesday with a short clip of construction that ends with the words “BUILDING THE WALL!”

But horror author  Stephen King  had just one question concerning Trump’s biggest campaign promise. 

He tweeted:

Trump campaigned on a promise of not only building a wall across much of the entire southern border, but that Mexico would pay for it. 

Mexico is not paying for the wall. 

In addition, the footage posted by the White House does not show construction of a new border wall but rather a  replacement for existing fencing

However, a Supreme Court ruling last month that allows  Trump to redirect billions in funds intended for the military  toward border walls could pave the way for new construction.

That would be billions in U.S. taxpayer money ― not cash from Mexico.

When is the turd in chief actually going to build any wall?  Where has that billions gone?

Now he's going to start looting veterans' pensions to not build any wall.  

Winning how?

Unfortunately I think you are wrong, just like they believed the ACA would lower their premiums by 2500 a year, or everyone could keep their doctor. Period! It’s only republican lies that matter to some, and democrat lies to others.

 To answer the modern day oracle Rodney King: No, we can’t all just get along.

I don't know this qualifies as being pretty damn stupid; and her backers failed to take her to task for it.

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/hillary-clinton-syria-no-fly-zone-third-debate_n_58084280e4b0180a36e91a53?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbS8&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAJQAyywNnboOUr6aPx-IiRf7mqId83jQZljCUrENEfsHf-3kBR4sAqfKvbHCzckx_EXrswrztA1Rkm0M4tMENF5WE1y7XB9PMWzgULqa8grEHqBHobolygdI8Rq4wgDxTWqz24NsT3u4qXnBd0dDLEd7iVvPqdCvcnMVThCRU8zb

Clinton stuck to an argument she has made many times: Creating an area where Syrian and Russian planes cannot fly would give the U.S. “leverage” over Syria and Russia to negotiate a political resolution.

“A no-fly zone can save lives and hasten the end of the conflict,” she said.

With proper planning, Clinton argued, the restriction could accomplish those goals without sparking a larger war.

“I am well aware of the really legitimate concerns you have expressed from both the president and the general,” Clinton responded. “This would not be done just on the first day. This would take a lot of negotiation. It would also take making it clear to the Russians and the Syrians that our purpose here was to provide safe zones on the ground.”

Ensuring the safety of civilians in areas of Syria under heavy bombardment from the Syrian and Russian air forces would even “help us in our fight against ISIS,” Clinton argued.

In the world of BS that has to be at the top of the list. ISIS/ISIL doesn't have planes. The only purpose to a no fly zone is to remove Russian/Syrian/Chinese planes that are fighting US backed rebel forces.  They would never go for that; and she knew it- admitting such.

https://www.salon.com/2016/10/21/hillary-clinton-admitted-in-2013-that-a-no-fly-zone-would-kill-a-lot-of-syrians-but-still-wants-one/

This argument, however, is undermined by what Clinton herself privately acknowledged just three years ago. An excerpt of a June 2013 paid speech Clinton delivered to Goldman Sachs, recently released by the WikiLeaks, shows that Clinton is well aware of how dangerous a no-fly zone could be.

"To have a no-fly zone you have to take out all of the air defense, many of which are located in populated areas," the former secretary of state explained in the 2013 speech. "So our missiles, even if they are standoff missiles so we’re not putting our pilots at risk — you’re going to kill a lot of Syrians."

"So all of a sudden this intervention that people talk about so glibly becomes an American and NATO involvement where you take a lot of civilians," she added.

Clinton also noted that Syria had "the fourth-biggest army in the world," along with "very sophisticated air defense systems" that had gotten even more sophisticated because of Russian imports.

The quotes from this speech were included in a list of excerpts of Clinton's paid speeches to Wall Street, which was attached to a January 2016 email to John Podesta, a close Clinton ally who now serves as the chair for Clinton's presidential campaign. WikiLeaks has published thousands of emails to and from Podesta.

So No Fly Zone that saves lives and doesn't start WWIII; or Mexico paying for the wall. Which statement is dumber?

And Obama said we could keep our doctors. Didn't seem to work out that way for many, and I don't remember any liberals crying about it.

Still spewing that BS eh?

It would have been $2,500.00 a year but there were so many cons in the South that refused to use it, it drove up the cost. It's cost was based on participation....you know, like fucking car insurance? Also, everyone I know that used the ACA kept their doctors.

If Trump supporters would actually look at the Republican administrations in charge of every border state over the last 50 years and wake up to the reality that the people they blindly vote for created this very issue by not tackling immigration in those states or when they held a Republican Presidency or Republican House and Senate. Republicans in those states were happy to oblige their wealthy donors to allow cheap labor. The issue did not happen overnight and it won't be solved as long as Republican wealthy donors still employ or exploit immigrant labor. Republicans have NO PLAN to go after or prosecute wealthy people who exploit this situation. Easier to blame the immigrant rather than look in their own mirror.

That's not a revelation. We've said it over and over - both political parties have had reasons to keep the crisis going!  Trump is not one of them.
