The wall ain't happening because they won't find anyone to put their name to it (among other reasons)

"I’m a structural forensicist, which means I’m called in when things go wrong," Patrick continued. "This is a project that WILL go wrong. When projects go wrong, the original estimates are just *obliterated*. And when that happens, good luck getting it fixed, because there aren’t that many forensicists out there to right the ship, particularly not that are willing to work on a border wall project—a large quotient of us are immigrants, and besides, we can’t afford to bid on jobs that are this political. We’re small firms, and we’re already busy, and we don’t gamble our reputations on political footballs. So you’d end up with a revolving door of contractors making a giant, uncoordinated muddle of things, and it’d generally be a mess. Good money after bad. The GAO agrees with me."

Trump results in first two years.

That'd be a fail all round then.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Spanky on Mexican border traffickers:

“Human traffickers – the victims are women and children. Maybe to a lesser extent, believe or not, children. Women are tied up. They’re bound. Duct tape put around their faces, around their mouths. In many cases, they can’t even breathe. They’re put in the backs of cars or vans or trucks.”


No one knew what he was talking about, certainly not the folk patrolling the border, turns out its a scene from a film "Sicario: Day of the Soldado" seems Spanky saw it and either forgot he saw it or thought it was a documentary,

be afraid, be very afraid

goodest presidentin I ever did see.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

oh ffs, I just watched the trailer for "Sicario: Day of the Soldado" and there's a clip with prayer mats being found in the desert so that story came from the film too, what was he watching before he came up with "Space Force" I wonder.

A low level staffer that I hardly knew named Cliff Sims wrote yet another boring book based on made up stories and fiction. He pretended to be an insider when in fact he was nothing more than a gofer.
He signed a non-disclosure agreement.
He is a mess!

2:45 PM - 29 Jan 2019
In response Cliff Sims released a series of photographs of him together with Spanky.
We have been around this non-disclosure agreement loop before. Basically White House employees are Federal employees not Trump employees so any Federal non-disclosure agreement they sign is about not releasing any Govt. classified information. It is probably not allowed for Federal employees to sign NDA's with clauses protecting Trump, anyway time will tell......

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I'm wondering if Spanky has got Obama and Osama confused, is this why he hates him so much? it would explain a lot.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Spanky attacking his own intelligence services again! Putin must love him.

Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

The Intelligence people seem to be extremely passive and naive when it comes to the dangers of Iran. They are wrong!
When I became President Iran was making trouble all over the Middle East, and beyond. Since ending the terrible Iran Nuclear Deal, they are MUCH different, but a source of potential danger and conflict.
They are testing Rockets (last week) and more, and are coming very close to the edge.
(sic)There economy is now crashing, which is the only thing holding them back. Be careful of Iran.
Perhaps Intelligence should go back to school!
He claims "they are MUCH different" without providing any evidence or claiming whether Iran is better or worse!

The tweets came a day after Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and CIA Director Gina Haspel offered testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee that seemed to contradict things the president has said.

He also tweeted "They are testing Rockets (last week)" which seems to be something Spanky invented.

I'm waiting for him to start attacking the president of the USA.
That might be the day he will start making sense.

Today, we broke ground on a plant that will provide jobs for up to 15,000 Wisconsin Workers!
As Foxconn has discovered, there is no better place to build, hire and grow than right here in the United States!
8:57 PM - 28 Jun 2018
Louis Woo, special assistant to Foxconn CEO Terry Gou at Foxconn told Reuters today that the company determined a US plant "can't compete" with lower-cost flat panel manufacturing plants elsewhere in the world.
He told Reuters that the company now planned to create a "technology hub" in Wisconsin rather than a factory. Woo said three-quarters of Foxconn's eventual jobs will be in research and development and design, not blue-collar manufacturing jobs.

So no, or very few, of the blue-collar manufacturing jobs promised. Whether Foxconn will eventually build a facility there and how many new jobs will be created is a good question!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

US Intelligence Community heads present to congress the "Worldwide Threat Assessment" - the product of 1000s of experts analysis of world events.


Spankys response? "They are wrong!" - what a clown,


Come on Spanky fans, you've gone awful quiet in defending your boy, if this was a footie match we'd be doing 'You're not singing anymore' about now.

The problem for Spanky is they did not support his lies, for example, they said;
  • Iran is not building nuclear weapons
  • N. Korea is and will not denuclearise
  • The Southern Border is not a national emergency.¨
  • ISIS is not finished

Difficult situation for the Intelligence chiefs who want to say it as it is knowing their boss will hit them and will regard them as "disloyal".

Dow just broke 25,000. Tremendous news!

10:54 PM - 30 Jan 2019
And just over one year ago

The Fake News Media barely mentions the fact that the Stock Market just hit another New Record and that business in the U.S. is booming...but the people know! Can you imagine if “O” was president and had these numbers - would be biggest story on earth!
Dow now over 25,000.

5:04 AM - 5 Jan 2018
Any bets on Dow in January 2020

The amount of taxpayer money ex-governor Walker gave them is ridiculous as well.
