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

Coal bunkers were integral components of the protection scheme for 19th century warships! They would store the coal above the main armor plating on the ship, so that shells would have to pass through the stored coal before reaching the armor. So maybe a steel behind a long, linear mound of coal?

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

They should make the wall out of whatever they make those black boxes on planes out of, amirite?

On Chapo they were saying that his advisers couldn't get him to remember/repeat anything complex and nuanced with regard to immigration, so they arrived on "BUILD WALL" because it was simple enough for him to remember and repeat.

Someone should tell Trump the wall should be made of unobtainium.

Can't believe nobody has had this idea yet. A coal wall! You have to get this idea to Trump, Jesus Christ.

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

So MNBC and CNN strategy parade all the folks that are suffering from the shutdown and Fox parade all the folks who had a family member killed by an Illegal immigrant

Fox went to a small town and interviewed 4 folks at a café (old & white) Woman says we support Trump he understands us and grew up like us? Sadly the reporter didn't say your daddy gave you millions

What a farce

They have this stuff folks, it's called clean coal. A wall of it 40 feet high. So clean you can see through it. You can't get around it. You'll never get over it. It's perfect.

I legit had no idea that it was anything more than Trump bluster before I heard it.
Well damn! Right after I posted this Acosta retweeted from 2016:

Little Marco somehow made a good point (from his point of view, anyway) about how Trump using omgz national emergency to get wall money would be a bad idea, because the next "national emergency" could be climate change.

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

The actual Rubio quote which I've just now bothered to google

Quote:
Such a declaration would set a precedent, Rubio said. "If today, the national emergency is border security ... tomorrow the national emergency might be climate change." Declaring a national emergency, which would certainly face legal hurdles, could give Trump the ability to use the military to build the wall instead of getting Congress to approve the funding for it.

Somehow I have no doubt that Rubio was obnoxiously making air quotes while saying the words 'climate change' in that quote.

This really is the best use of the slippery-slope fallacy ever - "hey if we start invoking emergency powers for racist imaginaries, the next thing you know we'll be using them for legitimate, impending, world-wide catastrophe!"

Love me some Republican party.

Too bad Obama is too busy cashing those Deutsche Bank checks to respond.

It really sucks that Hillary didn't refer to them as "basket of idiots" because it would have been awesome seeing all those Trumpstains proudly labeling themselves "idiot" on the social medias

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

Chiefsplanet's entire thrust right now is that Democrats used to be cool with a wall at one time. It must be running on a loop in a derposphere.

They're pretty sure it was some other party that obstructed everything Obama tried to do for 8 years.
