It was obvious to me his mouth stayed small, barely saying the words in front of him with little emotion.


He and Obama are opposites in that respect. Trump is lousy on a teleprompter and Obama is lost without one.

Just 6 immigrants stopped at border were on terror watch list: report
https://nypost.com/2019/01/07/just-6-immigrants-stopped-at-border-were-on-terror-watch-list-report/

I think we know what 6 terrorists are capable of.  If they have caught any it is too many.  But for the sake of argument if 1,2,3,4,5,10,15 have been caught then more have slipped through.

Bill Seeks to Designate Drug Cartels as Terrorists


By JULIÁN AGUILARAPRIL 21, 2011


Continue reading the main story Share This Page


A Texas congressman is seeking to designate seven of the top Mexican cartels as “foreign terrorist organizations,” a move he says would give law enforcement in the United States enhanced tools to combat the cartels.

Legislation proposed by Representative Michael McCaul, Republican of Austin, takes aim at the Arellano Félix organization, Los Zetas, La Familia Michoacana, and the Beltrán Leyva, Sinaloa, Juárez and Gulf cartels. It would permit the government to freeze money tied to the organizations and enhance the criminal penalties for those found aiding the cartels.

“The definition under federal law of terrorism says ‘to intimidate a civilian population or a government by assassination or kidnappings.’ To me the cartels fall squarely into that definition,” said Mr. McCaul, a former chief of counterterrorism and national security in the United States attorney’s office. “I am concerned that Mexico is losing this war against the drug cartels, and so are we.”

If those two aren't criminals I don't know who is.  Talking about untruths.  They have absolutely no intention to work on border security.  The Democrats only intentions is to allow millions more illegal aliens into the country.  Very apparent by the Democratic Governor of California.

@austingirl

I checked on Wikipedia and she is 79.  She looks older than I am.  Maybe she played golf out in the sun.  I would burn in the sun so I stayed out of it.  Could be she would not let Wikipedia state her real age.  One can tell she has had plastic surgery as her skin is thin, pulled up to her eyes.  After plastic surgery, a woman looks like a mannequin - not real.

I thought she must be close to 90 as her ability to find words she wants to say, is gone and she can't stay on the subject in one sentence.  I think she may have had mini-strokes as that would account for her language/memory going and she has been this way for several years but it has been getting worse since last year.  I didn't think she would be here this year, thought she would resign.  She has said this will be her last year.

Yes, she's had a lot of work and eventually there is nothing left to nip and tuck. The makeup was extreme.
Principles matter. Words matter.

Definitely not.  He did not make a strong case.   The only thing that is in play now, is the blame game and who can play it better.  I'm thoroughly disgusted.

I didn't think it was that bad.  Eight minutes is hardly enough time to tell Americans about the enormous risk to their security caused by open borders.  He shouldn't have mentioned that Chuck and Nancy were up next.

Great line: People don't build walls around their homes because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside.

Yeah, great line that makes me think that our government doesn't love Americans (people on inside).

It was only a kaboom if you expected one.  I thought by getting his speech on the networks, Trump was taking his case to the American people and he did just that.

People here are all too familiar with it but everyone isn't.

Anyone who expected Trump to declare war or a national emergency on this speech was not being real.  He may declare a national emergency but there will be a lot more press leading up to it.

Against stupidity, the Gods themselves contend in vain.

I’m guessing, out of the TV viewers tonight, 30% will think it was the greatest speech ever, 30% will think it was the worst, 25% will be ambivalent, and 15% will watch something else.

Mark me down for the 15% group.
Time for unity in America! (better late than never)

I'm delighted he mentioned Chuck and Nancy were up next.  I wouldn't want one voter to have missed that show.   :silly:

That was not a speech that will convince anyone who doesn’t own a #MAGA hat.

Maybe the speech was a rope-a-dope. 

Our POTUS said we have a serious crisis, but as everyone on our side noticed, he gave very little data supporting that position even though he certainly could have.  Trump appears to be thereby dangling a seemingly lovely opportunity for the Dems to flatly deny the fact of the crisis--e.g., saying "It's all manufactured!."  Heck, that's their entire playbook.  They have to stick to it and hope against hope that doubling down on their lies will somehow win the debate (especially if they yell louder and louder).   

I am guessing that the idiot Dems are  pretty relieved right now, considering the fact that Trump's speech was so low-key.  The Dems will likely be delighted to go loudly and clearly on record that Nasty Old Trump is lying about the "crisis."  (After all, he didn't even try to make a strong case, did he?  It would appear that he has no very high cards in his hand--right?)

Ah, but if President Trump has some way of getting air time again--and I am willing to bet that he does!--he will be able publicly to eat the Dems alive with lots and lots of verified data and mind-blowing video footage.  (Hopefully, the latest Central American caravan will be here soon.)  This next speech, way over eight minutes in length (!), would be the best way to show that the Dems and the MSM are over-the-top liars.  They will have taken their best shot, but it will be demonstrably devoid of all of the important FACTS.  By rebutting the rebuttals, there will be no further effective rebuttals possible for the Dems.  The Dems will have already shot their wad in their attack.  Trump's rhetorical counterattack could sarcastically thank them for having opened up the issues of the facts on the border and in our homeland, thanking them for focusing our electorate's attention on cold, hard facts--the FACTS that TRUMP WILL REVEAL OVER AND AGAINST THE FAKE NEWS THAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN GETTING. 

If Trump is playing everything this way, his opening speech tonight was merely designed to open the discussion, not to end it--not to win the debate with a first round knock-out.  The speech was good enough to pique the curiosity of the hoi polloi over the next several days, and it did have some gems that rang true even in the foul souls of the political reprobates who will try to attack him as a phony.  Most important of all, however, Trump will have set up ominous momentum for himself and will wind up having essentially the last word in the debate--which is always a good thing.  By securing the dramatic final position in the debate, luring the Dems into presenting their "Just Smear Trump" position, he will have turned the tables on the Dems.  In fact, I assume that Trump can and probably will unleash his most ferocious and unanswerable accusations against the Dems and MSM while he is schooling the American public on how bad the mess is IN SPITE OF WHAT THE LYING, SOCIALIST CROOKS HAVE BEEN TELLING THEM.

This rope-a-dope strategy, with Trump posing as having only a nice-sounding but fairly calm, soft argument, will focus many political numbskulls' attention on the real villains in the overall fracas--i.e., the Radical Socialists who are trying to destroy our country by their sheer hypocrisy, by their fake and outrageously un-American "compassion' for the tired and poor over and against America's necessary sovereignty and necessary national security.  The will see that the facts of the dangerous border mess are on Trump's side.  All but the craziest admirers of the Socialist crooks will notice that the Dems have no facts.  Many patriotic but confused, misinformed, foolish Democrat voters will finally connect the dots to see that their political heroes don't just hate Trump:  they are power-mad Socialist elitists who hate America itself and who are just using their Democratic Party base as a huge mob of useful idiots.

***

Finally, it occurs to me that the reason why Trump did not declare an emergency during this speech might be that he is going to do it in the next speech--forcing himself onto the air again in a crushing counterattack against the Dems and the MSM.  He might even use the Emergency Alert System to stellar advantage for this move.  (He might even use the occasion of the border wall discussion to telegraph his intentions to marshal federal forces against voting fraudsters and even sanctuary city/state crooks--opening sealed grand jury indictments, for example.  This would jolt a lot of folks into considering the possibility that our unsecured border and our sanctuary cities and our horrible mess of voting fraud really do frame a major conspiracy to take down America--i.e., a real emergency.)

Remember:  The DHS has not made its final report on the problem of voting fraud.  (I certainly haven't seen it, at least.)

Why do I think Trump might be playing it all this way?  I dunno.  I suppose that it's because this is the way I would play it if I were him.  (Gee, I hope he's as shrewd as I am. tri22

Not ill - he did not want to stay with the words he was required to say and nothing else.  He has always gone off of printed speeches to do his own thing, but he stayed on each word in front of him and said nothing else. 

I'd love to hear your opinion of Schumer's eyes @Victoria33
