Has anyone ever noticed that the Dominic account sometimes posts things that are a little behind the current news cycle?

Seeing reports that Trump is preparing his national emergency proclamation but maybe it’s just fake news.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

The CNN article makes it sound likes he's about to issue it but only says it's been recently updated so who knows. It's horrible move to make for him which makes it more likely and also makes it likely to succeed...

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Trump is DYING to give the SOTU address. LOL I don't know why b/c no one other than political junkies really watch past the first 15 min or so.

So you got
1. Trump. He WANTS that national emergency. Craves the attention as well as being the one to take action.
2. Mitch. He knows full well if Trump declares an emergency, the next Dem POTUS may do the same about healthcare or wages. So he doesn't want that.
3. Pelosi. She knows both #1 and 2.

Probably a good time to remind the audience that there are zero remotely competent people left in this administration

trump's not going to back down because he thinks grocery stores will let people walk out with free food and live rent free indefinitely, he's delusional, his only play is to call a national emergency and divert puerto rico hurricane relief money to wall contractors

the vast majority of trump's supporters believe "government workers" are:

A: on vacation in the bahamas

B: useless drags on the economy and a waste of their tax dollars

Maddow reporting that this supervisor did it 30 times

30 people in the WH have clearances right now who did not qualify for them

Who is the most competent person left? I don't much about the DoD guy, hope it's him.

Some people hate mentioning impeachment, but the Jared Kushner (and others) clearance debacle has to rise to a serious abuse of power. Of course, nothing will ever come of it.

It probably is him, yeah. He just seems like a standard issue corporate warrior. Just had a quick glance over the Cabinet. What an array of freaks and ghouls.

To all Home Depot employees: After careful consideration and given the recent news we have declined Ted Bundys clearance into the axe isle.

If Obama gave one person clearance who didn’t qualify Fox would have turned itself into a one story 24 hour news program for a decade. There would have been instant impeachment proceedings.

Great mud puddle forming outside my window! Too bad the media is not reporting on it.
