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

Supreme Court rules against mystery corporation from ‘Country A’ fighting subpoena in Mueller investigation
The court dissolved a temporary stay that had been put in place by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. In a short order, it did not give a reason for the decision, nor did it note any dissents.

The entity that is the subject of the cloaked legal battle — known in court papers simply as a “Corporation” from “Country A” — is a foreign financial institution that was issued a subpoena by a grand jury hearing evidence in the special counsel investigation, according to two people familiar with the case.

At a wild-ass guess, maybe spam filters very aggressively target emails with lots of consecutive zeros? Though of course, I don't see why lots of consecutive Os wouldn't also be filtered that way, so maybe not.

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

Today I learned that the RNC has set up a website called borderfacts.com

After scrolling through the "facts," it closes with a form letter you can send to Pelosi and Schumer (in all caps!)... after providing an email and mobile phone number

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

I assume the odds of Trump declaring a state of emergency have went up dramatically with all the Mueller news. I'm sure he's bumbling around right now, 'so what are the magic words I have to say for emergency?'

Take a Drink if Trump:
Uses the following buzzwords: Danger, Threat, Caravan, Gangs

Uses the following adjectives: Amazing, Tremendous, Incredible, Best, Beautiful, Out of Control, Weak, Terrible

Blames Democrats for anything. Doesn’t matter if it’s the government shutdown, weak borders, Russian collusion or rigged elections. Trump’s gonna play the hits and you’re gonna be hungover. Take two if he calls out Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer by name.

Ad-libs. Trump supporters love his ability to speak off-script. And since Trump doesn’t write (or likely read) any of his own speeches, he loves adding a little flair of his own at the end of sentences. Usually he’ll just repeat the last few words, but occasionally Trump will add a “very bad” or “can’t have it” to let you know the speech is HIS.

Take Two Drinks if Trump:
Uses the following buzzwords: MS-13, Bad Hombres, Fake News, Low Energy

Inappropriately praises the wall. Trump’s already described the proposed border wall as “beautiful” and “artistically designed.” But odds are he’s cooked up some extra catchy new phrases to play up its aesthetics. Sleek and sturdy? Tall and titanic? Robust and racially pure? We know Trump’s a man of many words, the best words—especially when he’s describing something he wants. After all, a wall just stands there asking for it. Don’t be shocked if he moves on it like a *****.

Mentions Any Cabinet Member(s) by Name. Trump’s a cretin, sure, but he’s hardly the mastermind of his own despotic immigration policy. Stephen Miller and Kirstjen Nielsen are best bets here. Take three if he mentions someone he already fired, like Steve Bannon, John Kelly or James Mattis.

Finish Your Drink if Trump:
Has a Dental Malfunction. Not likely, but we can’t rule it out. Surely his handlers will have extra Fixodent on standby.

Takes Everything Back, Admits The Wall is a Stupid Idea. Make sure to call a friend first, just to make sure you’re not in an Andy Borowitz article. Then begin drinking heavily.

Illegally Declares a National Emergency to Deal With Nonexistent Border Security Problems. We are in the end times. Drink up.

I've genuinely thought about doing some speechwriting but have no clue where to start and I imagine it would be a massive pay cut. I could deal with that for the right situation, but it's not like you can just walk in off the street and get a job writing speeches.
Great job!

You could post your speech somewhere where high-up Dems would see it and then take great glee if/when any of it is spoken by Pelosi/Schumer.

You may remember that when he was talking about going out and protesting I suggested that his time would be better spent writing op eds or letters to the editor. He is also the only one who made both my smartest posters list and my has no ulterior motives to be liberal list.

His only flaw is not realizing that Trump could point out Greenland on a map.

Thanks, but I have no clue where high-up Dems would see it. Any ideas? In theory I could start a website and post messaging ideas and speeches and mass email them to Congressional offices hoping someone wanted to contract me or hire me for speechwriting but it seems like a long shot and a ton of work.

Not sure what you mean about not having ulterior motives to be liberal... But as for the last part, if you, me and Donald Trump are ever in the same room, you've got a bet. I actually give him credit for being able to label more countries on a map than most of the posters here (mainly oddly shaped ones like Italy, for example), but I don't think Greenland is one of them (unless he somehow has a property there, which seems highly unlikely).

Greenland is an obvious gimme because of the Mercator projection, Trump will remember it because it looks big and therefore important.

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

I'd say we're very near the breaking point. The only question is whether Trump caves or does something even more extreme. They can't hold it together much longer. Which is probably the reason for this desperation speech.

There is no need for multiple different response speeches pulling in different directions after a historical presidential disaster announcement.

I’m not just picking on Bernie here this is the kind of thing Democrats do all the time and why I’m still giving them a pretty good shot and punting 2020.
