Indeed. Mirrors my 'wall strategy':
Rush and all the Right's pundits say a court challenge to Trump's National Emergency Order will stymie securing the border.
FDR stood up to the Supreme Court and they blinked.
Reagan didn't worry about a court order for Grenada.
It's called the 'How many divisions does the Pope have?' option...courtesy of Uncle Joe Stalin.
Trump must reestablish the primacy of the authority of the Commander in Chief in securing the country while ignoring judicial or legislative roadblocks.
3 Courses of Action...used separately or together:
1- Declares a national emergency and deploys active engineer units to begin securing the border...and ignores any court order. 'Wobbly' commanders are relieved of duty until an officer who can follow 'legal, moral, and ethical' orders (the Lieutenant Calley standard) takes command. (How many battalion commanders does the 9th Circuit direct?)
2- Declares that all National Guard and Reserve units, as part of their 'Annual Training' (2-week ATs each summer), are 'redirected' in their training plans to remote areas of the border near Ft. Bliss, Ft. Huachuca, and Yuma Proving Grounds, to install hundreds of tons of concertina wire, pickets, and barrier material that is rusting away in motor pools across the country from the Gulf wars (ALL already paid for).
3- Redeploys the forces from both Syria and Afghanistan to 'demobilization' training to areas vicinity Ft. Bliss, Ft. Huachuca, and Yuma Proving Grounds for temporary duty installing wire, pickets and barrier material in the most remote areas of the southern border.
Is it a wall? No.
Is it a steel barrier? Kinda.
It is a barrier though, helps channel illegals to more actively secure locations on the border, demonstrates resolve to secure the border, reestablishes the President's role and authority as Commander in Chief, and 'moves the ball forward.'
