Stephen Sackur Talks To Mica Mosbacher

      Reality check!

      HARDtalk's Stephen Sackur speaks to Mica Mosbacher, Republican strategist and member of the National Advisory Board of Trump 2020. If the normal political rules applied to Donald Trump he would be holed up in the white house in a state of despair. He's at war with Democrats in Congress, the federal government is partially shut down, his relationship with Putin's Russia is under fierce scrutiny, and his standing at home and abroad continues to take a hit. And yet..., every day he comes out punching; raising the stakes, not retreating. Is the Trump presidency making America great, or greatly diminished?

      My take-away key points; from MM.

      "The way out is for congress to do it's job"

      "Stay in Washington, do your job, sit down, and find bi-partisan legislation."

      "Both sides need to give in a bit, I think we need a legislative solution and that is up to congress, especially those facing re-election in 2020"

          Trump says he is considering declaring a state of emergency because he needs to get the Wall built because of security and safety concerns. Most notably because of rapists and murderers coming across the border. The problem with that is Trump's numbers are grossly exaggerated but that is not to say we don't have murderers and rapists who are actually murdering, especially mass murderers, and are raping our citizenry in staggering numbers every day. The mass murders in Trumps first year in office (2017) amounted to 317 mass shooting sprees in the U.S. (The FBI defined a mass shooting as a shooting where 3 or more people get killed) and 307 mass killing sprees in his 2nd year in office (2018). In 2017 there were close to 100,000 reported cases of forcible rape. Those are just the reported cases. The statistics for 2018 are not as yet out.

          Let's put this in perspective. Trump is willing to spend $5.7 billion dollars on a wall to protect our citizens from murderers and rapists coming across our border but not spend that money on murders and rape committed by legal citizens of the USA? So how much is Trump spending to protect us from those hundreds of mass shootings that take roughly 3,000 lives each year and where almost 100,000 forcible rapes take place each year in our Nation. Oh yeah, Trump was quick to mention 3 or 4 incidents of murders committed by illegals. That is nothing in comparison to what is going on with legal Americans. Why isn't the Press and our law makers concerned about the horrendous amount of murders and rapes already being committed upon our citizenry by our citizenry? How many of those mass killings were committed by illegal aliens? How many?

          Why Is Trump So Obsessed About Building His Wall?

              In all my years I have never, ever, seen a president grovel so much about getting their way on something. This goes beyond a normal obsession. Why is Trump embarrassingly consuming every waking minute to spout lie after lie about why he has to have this wall built?

              I have come up with two conclusions about why Trump is so obsessed with his wall.

              1.) He wants to divert attention away from all of his problems and the Mueller investigation and this seems to be the perfect diversion. Trump spends all his time devoted to this Wall and the Press is being suckered into reporting this thinking it is actually news. It isn't. It is nothing but a ruse, a diversion, a trick. Call it what you wish but Trump is manipulating everyone, including the Press. When Trump felt there wasn't enough attention being diverted away from all the investigations he comes up with this idea of getting the wall built by declaring a National Emergency. Just another diversionary tactic and one of his many empty threats.

              He desperately needs to show that he has at least kept one of his promises so he can brag about it in his State of the Union speech. Last year Trump was hoping on bragging about TrumpCare and what a great program that was and we all know what happened to that don't we?

              2.) Now with the Democrats winning back the House and a few of the House committees are talking about investigating so many things related to Trump and his financial dealings we can probably see even more desperation from Trump and the question is, will the Wall be enough of a diversion or will he do something dangerously stupid to divert attention away from him? I think he is desperate enough to do something really stupid which can hurt hundreds of thousands or even millions more of Americans like he did with his Government shutdown.

                  If Trump follows through over declaring a national emergency over his temper tantrum because he can't get his wall then America needs to........................

                  DECLARE A NATIONAL STRIKE

                  Enough is enough. Trump is abusing the office and powers of the presidency and none of our law makers seem capable or are willing to stop him. It's going to be left to the people to stop this crazy fool from destroying everything regarding our government and our laws.

                      I can't help but wonder why Trump has become so obsessed with the Wall. His obsession is turning into a sickness. Also, his obsession is putting families at risk because they can't pay their bills. Not just the 800,000 not getting a paycheck but their families as well. This just doesn't phase Trump one bit. He justifies it by saying those federal employees are democrats. Seriously, he said that.

                      So, why the obsession? I just thought about what is coming at the end of this month. Trump's State of the Union message. Trump doesn't really have any accomplishments to boast about and that wall was going to be his saving grace. Now without the wall Trump will have to stand before Congress and create shadow puppets to keep them entertained because he sure doesn't have squat to brag about. I am talking about something factual not one of his constant lies.

                          Aside to Melissa Nguyen Horton and Mike Horton --don't we need a new category: something like "2020 Prez Candidates"?

                          Michelle Goldberg (one of my favorites; of the NYTimes) give us (progressive Dems, anyway) an upbeat column. But should it be Warren-Inslee 2020 or Inslee-Warren 2020? A good read--
