UPDATE: Blompf says it is all lies!
Now the press is trying to sell the fact that I wanted a Moat stuffed with alligators and snakes, with an electrified fence and sharp spikes on top, at our Southern Border. I may be tough on Border Security, but not that tough. The press has gone Crazy. Fake News!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
I can’t believe @PresidentBlumpf is treated this way by his own staff. Better Not Happen Again! https://t.co/5fawu7si6B— EMPEROR ‘KINGFISH’ WHITEPILL (@CptBlackPill) October 2, 2019

This article actually makes Blompf look somewhat sympathetic.
We elected him in 2016 to do all of these things. He can’t do these things for various reasons … the federal courts, Congress, the conservatives who staffed his administration, the permanent government of bureaucrats, his own incompetence and inability to govern, etc. He’s the most powerful, helpless man in the world struggling to implement his own agenda.
“WASHINGTON — The Oval Office meeting this past March began, as so many had, with President Trump fuming about migrants. But this time he had a solution. As White House advisers listened astonished, he ordered them to shut down the entire 2,000-mile border with Mexico — by noon the next day.
The advisers feared the president’s edict would trap American tourists in Mexico, strand children at schools on both sides of the border and create an economic meltdown in two countries. Yet they also knew how much the president’s zeal to stop immigration had sent him lurching for solutions, one more extreme than the next.
Privately, the president had often talked about fortifying a border wall with a water-filled trench, stocked with snakes or alligators, prompting aides to seek a cost estimate. He wanted the wall electrified, with spikes on top that could pierce human flesh. After publicly suggesting that soldiers shoot migrants if they threw rocks, the president backed off when his staff told him that was illegal. But later in a meeting, aides recalled, he suggested that they shoot migrants in the legs to slow them down. That’s not allowed either, they told him. …
In the Oval Office that March afternoon, a 30-minute meeting extended to more than two hours as Mr. Trump’s team tried desperately to placate him.
“You are making me look like an idiot!” Mr. Trump shouted, adding in a profanity, as multiple officials in the room described it. “I ran on this. It’s my issue.” …
Mr. Trump had routinely berated Ms. Nielsen as ineffective and, worse — at least in his mind — not tough-looking enough. “Lou Dobbs hates you, Ann Coulter hates you, you’re making me look bad,” Mr. Trump would tell her, referring to the Fox Business Network host and the conservative commentator. …”
Kirstjen Nielsen is obviously the source of this story.
She was one of the people who “tried to restrain him” from within his own administration. “Mad Dog” Jim Mattis was another. Gary Cohn and John Bolton were two others. This is an excerpt from a book called Border Wars which will be published next month.
The best thing about Trump winning was it provided undisputed proof that Presidents don’t really have much power, and the existence of a real “Deep,State”.
He will flounder around for the rest of this term and probably win next year, in which time he will accomplish nothing at all for his base. When the next Democrat gets into office that will be the official end of the United States, there will not be another Republican President because Texas and Arizona will turn blue. Then is completely over and political dissidents will be treated and considered as criminals. Arrests will happen and our first and second amendment rights will be suspended.
Trump went up to DC after the election like Caesar – he was that powerful. He had done the impossible – he had smashed both parties into the ground. They were totally demoralized and defeated and he had White America backing him 1000%. He had not only the South but the entire rust belt in his corner which is an extremely powerful populist FDR-like combo.
He was the most powerful man in the world and he blew it on tax cuts, banking deregulation, Israel-first and prison reform. I have never seen a bigger opportunity squandered in my life. Future historians are going to have a field day analyzing the Trump era and how the massive populist balloon had deflated in a matter of two years under this man’s leadership.
As soon as Trump got in they went radio silent on the wall. Ann Coulter was pleading with Trump from day one to break ground, but he ignored her.
I remember Bob Whitaker thought the wall was a dumb idea, as he knew it wouldn’t ever get done. He wanted to bring the troops home and put them on the border and post signs in all languages saying they would shoot to kill. All it would take is one illegal getting shot and the flow would stop, as the world would understand America wasn’t a push over any more. Bob only relented on supporting the wall, because there were so many nationalist dumb asses who believed Trump’s BS.
Bob also said Trump handed the future of the Republican Party back to the establishment GOP, when he appointed Pence. Reagan did the same thing when he appointed Bush.
If I had all the power Trump had, I would have thrown a coup on day one. I’d give my pipe hittin’ nationalists whatever they wanted from the US armory, and together we’d arrest the entire beltway for treason. Then we’d round up all the sleazy billionaires and strip them of their wealth. Too bad it won’t ever happen. America will soon be gone like tears in the rain.
Cannot the President, ask regular Americans to march on Washington, or march on their state capitols, to show solidarity? Dare the Deep State shoot innocent civilians, if the President merely were to ask for a show of support? I don’t want snarky answers, I would like some honest analysis on this idea.
Your predictions may turn out to be correct, but even so they still won’t be enough to get Whitey mad. Are you aware of my “moldy raisin bread” theory?
Yes, the election of Trump showed us what the US government really is. It ain’t pretty.
Electric fencing, moats, snakes, alligators, and leg shootings all sound like great and effective ideas to me.
And, to update an old George Carlin skit, livestream it and allow something like superchats. And have “Another Bites the Dust” play when a migrant gets shot or eaten.
The New York Times wants you to know that our beloved President Trump did his dead-level best to fulfill his campaign promises.
Thus, you dear Conservatives should not even think about replacing this Shabbos Goy with anyone else during the upcoming Republican Primaries.
I totally believe the events described in this article really did happen.
I have a better solution to protect our porous Southern border. Our government should place landmines across our border and if you attempt to cross it you pay the consequences.
Snakes and Alligators? What’s Trumpo trying to do make these Roman Catholic invaders from Central American feel at home?
I think the most important reminder is that Bush built 700 miles of fence in 2006, he even got the Secure Fence Act through.
I never liked Bush in particular but that says a lot about blomf..
So here you go, 700 miles were built back in 2006, blomf built what, 55 miles?
Secure Fence Act of 2006
The Secure Fence Act of 2006 (Pub.L. 109–367), also labelled H.R. 6061, is an act of the United States Congress which authorized and partially funded the construction of 700 miles (1,125 km) of fencing along the Mexican border.
