The Europeans should run the world. They always have more insightful answers. Perhaps the Chinees should be also considered. Primitive and war like countries like the USA should allow themselves t he had not given o be isolated as Trump is doing anyway. However some eastern European countries are also not ready for having a say in government. I was there in Portugal when its bloodless revolution occured and when Cataeno was asked why he had not given the vote to his people, his answer was, "how could I have done so when one was in charge of a largely uneducated population'.

Quite amusing to hear Mr Dickey discretit the yellow vest saying its not a huge social movement because there are not millions and millions in the street...if we get that its already too late!

Italy sounds like wanting weaker French economy.

If the polls started with yes or no questions:

do u support peaceful marches,

Do you support violent demonstrations

Do you support violence in Paris

Would you join yellow vest
And then,
How would you grade your support to yellow west
from 1 to 10

F*king leftist Daily Beast. F*king globalist Bloomberg News. If France wanted the pulse of America they would have a Breitbart Reporter on for American News.

There are currently 31 ongoing United States National Emergeincies. The fairest reading of the text of the National Emergency Act is simple. The president has plenary authority to declare a national emergency under 50 USC § 1621. If Congress disagrees, it can pass a joint resolution terminating the emergency, as per 50 USC § 1622.

"That base is narrow." 55%. Working Class America. The Chamber of Commerce Republicans are scared of them. The Democrats have lost them. This is a battle that will break the unspoken agreement between Chamber of Commerce Republicans that want cheap illegal labor, and Democrats that want more minority votes.

President Trump is right because the open border policies are responsible for the permanent separation of thousands of U.S. citizens' families whose loved ones were killed and taken from them forever through illegal immigrant crime and open borders.
Pasquino Marforio
Trump will hold out for wall funding until Congress agrees, or until 1/3 of the GOP caucus defects, making a veto override a possibility. At that point he will declare a national emergency and build the wall. "Moderate" Republicans tempted to defect should consider the precedent. This outs you and you will not be re-elected.

23% of U.S. Federal inmates are illegal immigrants. Border arrests are up 240%. In the Great State of Texas, between 2011 & 2018, there were a total of 292,000 crimes by illegal aliens, 539 murders, 32,000 assaults, 3,426 sexual assaults and 3000 weapons charges.

The shutdown has prevented the agency from renewing about 1,150 other contracts that expired in December and January.Read more

Adrianne Todman, CEO of the National Organization of Housing and Redevelopment Officials spoke with Roland Martin on Friday about the pain the government shutdown is causing people all over the country.
