And when his case reaches the Supreme Court ... Gorsuch and Kavanaugh will uphold the sentence.

Together with other Justices.

Maybe even unanimously.

 

Mark my words.

Key Hill negotiators say they have reached an agreement in principle to avert shutdown

McConnell says democrats latest push will poison border compromise 06:39
(CNN) — Congressional negotiators say they have reached an agreement in principle to avert a government shutdown at the end of this week.
The four lead bipartisan negotiators, emerging from talks Monday night, declined to get into details on how the agreement was struck, but when asked whether it included barrier funding and a resolution to the detention bed issue, Senate Appropriations Chairman Richard Shelby said: "We got an agreement on all of it."
Shelby's comments follow those from a Democratic aide involved in the border security funding talks who said earlier Monday negotiators are "very, very close" to an agreement and they are now checking to see if the emerging proposal would get the votes it needs to pass the House.
Sen. Patrick Leahy, a top Democratic negotiator, said the goal for the four lead negotiators was to reach a deal Monday night, then proceed to drafting the final agreement on Tuesday.
 
"I think we both agree if we can wrap this up tonight, do it tonight, our goal will be to do it tomorrow," said Leahy, of Vermont, regarding his work with Shelby.
About 25% of funding for the federal government runs out at the end of the week, and -- without a deal -- would trigger another partial shutdown. A group of bipartisan lawmakers had been meeting for weeks to try to find a deal that would give funding related to immigration and border security. Those talks broke down over the weekend, but four members of that group -- the top Democrat and Republican from both the House and Senate Appropriations committees -- kept meeting Monday to try and find a deal that could pass both chambers and get President Donald Trump's signature.
The Democratic aide said there is still "a ton of work to do once they have an agreement reached" to ready it for the floor. 
A Republican aide involved expressed some caution on the progress given the repeated breakdowns over the past few weeks, but acknowledged negotiators "are clearly moving in the right direction." 
Another GOP aide said, "Hearing good things tonight."
Leahy would not specify how the issue of how many detention beds -- a key hold up from over the weekend -- was being resolved. 
"I'm not going to go into details," Leahy said as he headed to his Capitol office where the meeting was set to start. 
 
Speaking separately, Rep. David Price, a North Carolina Democrat on the conference committee said if an agreement was reached on Monday night, both chambers could likely get something to the president's desk before February 15 government funding deadline.
"I know the goal is to reach it tonight," Price said before the announcement of an agreement was made. "I hope we're back on track now with a serious give and take and good faith negotiations."

What we're hearing about the agreement (from one Democratic source)

From CNN's Dana Bash

The details are slowly trickling out -- but here's what we hear has been agreed to:

  • $1.375 billion for physical barriers (bollard fencing)
  • 40,520 level for overall ICE beds (down from current 49,057 level)

4 ways Trump could use executive authority to fund the border wall

From CNN's politics team

President Trump is continuing to weigh his options after congressional negotiators presented an agreement with only $1.375 billion in border barrier funds.

White House officials have a roster of options they have been weighing that would employ the President's executive authority to secure money for a border wall. Not all would require declaring a national emergency.

Those options include...

Accessing Treasury forfeiture funds 

  • How much money? About $680 million
  • National emergency? This option would not require the President to declare a national emergency.
  • How would it work? After the Office of Management and Budget reviews the order, Treasury and DHS would both notify Congress then wait 15 days before the funds can be obligated. Acquisition of land is allowed under this option.

Using USC 284 to divert some Pentagon funds for counter-narcotics 

  • How much money? An estimated $700 million
  • National emergency? It may not require the President to declare a national emergency, according to a Congressional Research Service legal report.
  • How would it work? The Department of Homeland Security must exercise a waiver to transfer counter-drug funds to construct fencing to block drug smuggling. DHS would also ask the Department of Defense to assist after identifying a location where a fence is needed to block drug smuggling corridor.

Using USC 2808 to gain access to military construction funds 

  • How much money? About $3.6 billion
  • National emergency? This option would require the President to declare a national emergency. It would also require the use of the military.
  • How would it work? The President would declare border protection a Department of Defense mission.

 Using Army Corps civil works funds under USC 2293 

  • How much money? An estimated $3 billion.
  • National emergency? It may require the President to declare a national emergency, but could also be used without one, according to a legal report.
  • How would it work? The Secretary of the Army may stop or defer Army civil works projects and apply funds to help build civil defense projects essential for the national defense (Note: The Secretary of the Army makes the final determination if essential to national defense) The unspent funds that could be used are now designated to go toward Army Corps of Engineers projects to repair infrastructure damaged by natural disasters.

It's not clear which combination of these actions the President might use, and the topic has been under debate for weeks. The President has held nearly daily meetings with senior advisers and others to discuss his options.

The estimates for how much each option could garner have also been under debate.

Charges will be fabricated.

 

And you don't know half, how vicious and treacherous Justices are.

They're not there to uphold Justice  but to uphold the Supreme Court's own agenda, which transcends Justice.

In fact is has nothing to do with how they interpret Justice.

 

By the way, Justice  is depicted as a blindfolded lady brandishing a sword .. randomly slashing left and right.

That ought to be a  "tell" !

 

Justices are for life ...

Justices are not accountable to anyone ...

No cameras allowed ...

Absolute secrecy in all their deliberations ...

 

More  "tells" !

 

Kinda like the INQUISITION !

 

-----> TRUMP -----> TRUMP -----> TRUMP !

Are y’all in the correct thread?  Choose an outcome!

Trump will keep the govt open and running...

Trump will keep saying and tweeting he will find ways to build the wall.....

 

Some will continue carrying his water....

Some will waiver....

Some will conclude that Faggot DC will never change and go back to not voting.

 

Some will continue to wonder why Trump has surrounded himself with the people he campaigned against.....Corrupt Bush Faggot Neocons

 

Some will shrug it off and go masturbate to lesbian teen porn

Like I always say ... it floats at around 33% all the time.

 

33% will like me ...

33% will hate me ...

33% don't give a sht about me either way ...

 

Sometimes it shortly tilts this way ... sometimes it shortly tilts that way .

Bit late - I vote #3 (more or less)

 

Funding for the pointless wall is zero but there will be 1.4B for some fencing.  

 

Trump will pretend that the wall is going to be built anyway. His gullible followers will believe him.

As much as I like Trump ... he should not be allowed to build that wall.

Then, jailing him and his parasites siblings and that fckface joozz Kushner ... would be preferable.

If Trump shuts the government down again, that will be the end of him for sure. His stupid wall will NOT EVER be built, certainly not as he claimed it would.

 

Of course he will claim this is a YUGE VICTORY, as "ConservativeKNAVE" will tell us. But we are not as stupid as this troll.
