    Yes.
    He would be delinquent if he did not!
    IMHO.

    News yesterday was Nancy was going to block SOTU even with government grinding back into action.
    I suspect some nervous staffers armed with awesomely bad focus group numbers had a friendly chat with her.

    I suspect he may not use the actual word ‘wall’ or ‘barrier’ – but will focus on the humanitarian crisis at the border and will frame his words around that emergency.

    I don’t get it. Why would he not mention it?

    DT will do what he usually does.
    Keep people guessing.

  6. Won’t it depend on who is on Fox & Friends that morning ?

    The invite must have been through gritted teeth. 😁😁😁

    If he has to sell the need for border security on the basis of the humanitarian crisis he has lost the argument.

    It is like worrying if the home invader has had a meal before he breaks into your house.

    He will speak, tweet but not build a wall and not start deportations.

    No guessing here.

    Trump should use the SOTU Address to declare a national emergency on the Southern border.

    Dream dream dream 🎵 🎵

  11. More specifically, will he declassify the documents that incriminate the previous administration in Uranium One? Will he discuss the 71,000 sealed indictments that deal with the attempted coup? Will he announce the use of military tribunals to try some of these 71,000 for treason? Will he reveal that John McCain and GHW Bush were executed on summary conviction?

    Denmark is building a 70km border wall against Germany!

    Rumour on the street is that Progressive Danish Democrats would rather shut down the Danish government than allow a border wall to be built, saying a wall prevents them from stocking their own new Animal Farm.

    Go on, Sinc, let this comment through for once, I made a funny!

    Since taking a sabbatical from this site l have been following the debate in America through a variety of sites.
    It seems to me that President Trump is progressively doing what he would said he would do prior to his election.
    President Trump is faced with machinery that we in Oz don’t understand. Oz is small compared to USA. The same chicanery is in play here but on a level similar to comparing euchre to bridge.
    It appears that the game is lost for what many of my vintage saw as a good model of personal resilience and responsibility, hoping to leave things better that we found it. The intentional loss of faith in the lessons of the past is now normal thinking for young people.
    I expect that the outcome in America will be that it will become a vassal state.
    I think much blood will be spilt in the process.

  14. overburdened

    BTW this means Oz is totally rxxted. #death throes

  15. Makka

    Of course he has to mention it. It will be referenced as border protection, security of the USA and it’s citizens for which he is supremely responsible, it will be referred to in the humanitarian and health spheres, in the prevention of crime and human trafficking.

    The Wall will be all over the SOTU.

    I expect this SOTU will be epic and have the leftards squealing and crying an ocean of tears and anguish.

  16. Jonesy

    I am betting Trump goes through the motions of negotiation with the dems and then pulls the emergency trigger maybe two days out from the SOTU.

  17. a happy little debunker

    he has lost the argument.

    What possible argument would the Resistance accept?

  18. RobK

    I expect the SOTU speech will explain the need for emergency provisions for border security. I have little doubt it will be dramatic.

  19. Mother Lode

    Just an observation – but Pelosi has rather girlish (as opposed to adult) handwriting.

  20. Mother Lode

    I suspect it all depends on how he plans to make a deal with Pelosi.

    He has already shown his intractability, it makes Pelosi look bad, so now he can make her a face saving compromise that she wouldn’t have accepted before. Call it a barrier, suggest fabrication will take place in California (so she can pose as looking after her state) etc.

    He may even have to set up a few special Aibo kennels to make her feel that she has got her way too.

  21. Mother Lode

    Actually, he should agree to scale back his wall plans, and augment a reduced wall with charged particle weapons and rail guns.

  22. Mark M

    This wall can already seen from space, and it hasn’t been built!

    Steve,
    Are you aware that the Republicans are going to release a report on FBI (Dem) agents working against Trump after the 2016 election.
