    He got nothing. I don't take your word for them being actual cuts, they always call decreased rates of growth "cuts". But even if we accept your assertion, I notice you didn't want to deal with the rest of my post: Is the debt still going up? Is total spending still going up? The article also lists lots of spending increases. He could have thrown a real wrench in the works, but instead he accepted a bag of air.

    "I understand that the U.S. is preparing to withdraw one brigade in case negotiations with South Korea do not go as well as President Trump wants," a diplomatic source in Washington with knowledge of the negotiations was cited as saying by South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo. There are about 28,500 U.S. troops in South Korea. A brigade is about 3,000-4,000 troops, Chosun said, and a potential reduction would be within the bounds of the National Defence Authorization Act for fiscal year 2019, passed by the U.S. Congress. None of the funds authorized by the act may be used to reduce the total number of U.S. military in South Korea below 22,000 unless the Secretary of Defense certifies the necessity to Congress committees.

    Congress absolutely could interfere, they passed a veto proof budget forbidding him from withdrawing troops from S. Korea without permission from the Pentagon for example. Trump had to manage the withdrawal so that while he was in charge in an election year it didn't become the kind of debacle Biden turned it into or just be something the media could pretend was such. Trump set up a successful withdrawal and got it far enough along and well enough managed that Biden couldn't stop it even though he tried. He didn't finance drag queens, Congress did in veto proof budgets. The jab was something he had no choice about in an election year, especially after he was crucified for pushing alternative therapies. He did nothing to set up Biden's abuses.

    Pretending that they might not use their super majorities to override, or that the media wouldn't crucify him with the aid of every RINO, or that he wouldn't create an even greater resentment and determination to not cooperate and try to do things like impeach and remove is just naive. There was 0 benefit to issuing vetoes that would 100% be overridden.

    Raising the debt ceiling is a very bad thing, very very bad. If you stop the debt the omnibus spending stops dead. Congress can and will stuff everything they want into smaller spending bills and ram them through, unless you stop the debt.

    Try reading instead of cherry picking, there are two articles: President Biden delays US troops' withdrawal from Afghanistan until 20th anniversary of 9/11 attacks Tuesday 13 April 2021 A plan put in place by former president Donald Trump had set a leaving date of 1 May, something agreed with the Taliban. The withdrawal of all US troops from Afghanistan is being delayed until 11 September - the 20th anniversary of the al Qaeda terror attacks on America. President Joe Biden has pushed back the departure by just over four months, in contrast to the previous planned full exit date of 1 May set by his predecessor, Donald Trump.

    His action couldn't prevent CoG, his action either didn't affect it at all (proving Trump didn't want it because he didn't call for it and only he could) or it actually set up the conditions for it by making Congress "unable to function in an emergency".

    Massie’s ‘yes’ vote key to passing of debt limit bill https://linknky.com/politics/2023/06...bt-limit-bill/ Massie’s vote just days earlier in the House Rules Committee, however, proved crucial to the Fiscal Responsibility Act moving to a House floor vote, where it passed Wednesday night. It then passed the Senate on Thursday. The 99-page bill suspends the $31.4 Trillion debt limit until January 2025. It cuts federal spending by $1.5 trillion over the next decade, according to the Congressional Budget Office, which includes $11 billion returned from COVID-19 pandemic funding. The Rules Committee voted 7-6 on a rule that governed debate over the debt bill, which ensured the bill reached the House and would pass the lower chamber — Massie’s ‘yes’ vote gave the rule a narrow margin that allowed the bill to pass by the June 5 deadline to avoid default.

    Budgets were passed by Congress with veto proof margins. And yet he did decrease their funding as best he could and they did have to cut back. When the enemy is forced to make admissions against their interests it's actually a pretty good source. When I cite friendly media you claim that's not credible, so I used your side's media.

    After October the plan was still on track to have us out by the agreed date in May. Trump was ahead of schedule and used that to make it clear to the Taliban that they had to follow their end of the bargain by slowing down withdrawal in a way that only cost some of the time he was ahead of schedule. Biden got in and deliberately violated the plan by delaying all the way to September to try and provoke the Taliban to abandon the plan altogether and keep the war going. He didn't delay the withdrawal as part of keeping the Taliban to their end of the deal, he halted it so that even when we did leave it was without all the equipment we left behind and it was a chaotic mess.

    Facts and logic. If they wanted to declare CoG they would have said they couldn't pass a necessary bill with Congress out of town and unable to return due to lockdowns. If they wanted to declare CoG they would have used Massie's obstruction of the plan to pass the bill without a quorum to declare Congress was unable to function because of Massie's actions. And It's simply a lie that even Massie claimed what you said he claimed.

    I'll never know why you think blatant lies work. Trump claimed, without any supporting evidence, that Democrats were behind the caravan, and raised conspiracy theories that the Central Americans had been paid to come to the United States for political reasons. “Now we’re starting to find out – and I won’t say it 100%, I’ll put a little tiny question mark at the end. But we’re probably not going to need it, but we have the fake news back there,” he told the crowd, adding a familiar jab at news reporters covering his campaign appearances. “A lot of money’s been passing through people to come up and try to get to the border by election day, because they think that’s a negative for us. Number one, they’re being stopped. And number two, regardless, that’s our issue.” Trump appeared to be referring to a video posted by the Florida representative Matt Gaetz, which he claimed showed women and children being given cash to “storm the US border @ election time”. He suggested without evidence that the source could be “Soros? US-backed NGOs?” referring to George Soros, an American billionaire who is the frequent subject of rightwing conspiracy theories. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/oct/19/trump-migrant-caravan-mexico-border-democrat-blame-no-evidence

    Biden delayed the withdrawal and all the preparations for it. As soon as he got in he threw Trumps withdrawal plan out and that has been admitted. Biden was hoping that by breaking the agreed withdrawal timetable the Taliban would start attacking us again and he could keep the war going, when that failed he botched on purpose and tried to blame Trump.

    Bunk. Trump bears the least responsibility. And the invasion costs an insane amount, not just in the money Biden is spending to facilitate it, but in the direct costs of the welfare and other ways the invaders take our money, and then there are the massive crime costs. And your cash register for a brain act won't fool anyone, people know that the invaders are intended to end the rule of law and the Constitution and install tyranny before genociding the rest of us. This is an invasion of conquest and genocide, no amount of dollars can touch that.

    That is a lie. Even Massie didn't claim Trump wanted to suspend the Constitution, and what Massie did say about CoG was provably false on the basis of logic and the facts. And he was 100% right about the stolen election, the usurpers suspended the Constitution by stealing it.

    Then you are blind. Biden has done much worse in all areas, with the border invasion being the flagship. And Trump was not responsible for that, Congress, the Fed, and the entire political establishment using the covid hoax they created and forced his hand with were responsible. Your blatant gaslighting will convince nobody.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the forum bands which have bound them to an incorrigible spammer, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
