Be Ready For Shutdown #2, by Karl Denninger.
Pelosi has admitted that the so-called “compromise” deal from the conference between House and Senate will not have any “wall money” in it.
This means Trump will almost-certainly veto it — assuming it can even pass the Senate….
Trump knows that if he was to actually sign such a bill and capitulate it would be the end of his 2020 run for re-election right here and now. He loses, immediately and irrevocably, if he agrees to any such thing — thus he won’t.
Pelosi thinks she has Trump backed into a corner and mortally wounded.
Reality isn’t quite that simple. Virginia’s Democrats just tried to pass a bill making infanticide legal. No, that’s not a joke; they literally intended to extend abortion protection up to and including after a mother had already gone into active labor. It was defeated by Virginia Republicans; the Democrats simply didn’t have the votes to pass it.
New York basically just passed the same sort of law; they did have the votes to pass it.
The media is refusing to cover either of these events, but you can bet the GOP will cover it fully in the run-up to 2020.
