Does he seriously expect California to just roll over and let him install a border wall on our southern border?

Depends on whether it's on federal land, or land that can legally be expropriated by the federal government. As an acquaintance of mine noted, yes, US federalism is built on states leading... except where the Constitution says the federal government leads, and one place where the Constitution explicitly tramples all over states' rights is in management of federal land.

Like, I am proud to say California is absolutely full of some of the most, shall we say, ill behaved liberals in the entire United States.

Trump tries to install that wall, he's gonna get all sorts of mischief.

Cohen testified today.  And oh my god if Trump wasn't in 'Nam right now the tweet storm would've been Biblical.

Ironbite-as is, it's gonna be amazing once he wakes up.

...Did the Republicans make even one question to learn about the crimes Trump did? Or did they spend the entire hearing trying to make Cohen look bad?
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Yeeeeep.  Not a single one of them even tried to do anything but attack Cohen over his supposed status as a "liar".  It was great.

Ironbite-the GOP have officially thrown off their poncho's to reveal Trump branded T-shirts.

And they brought that one black lady in that they always use whenever they want to show that Trump couldn't possibly be a racist because this one black woman worked for him at one time.

None of them want to go the way of Mark Sanford.

The funny thing is, they can and will go the way of Appalachian Trails if Der Leader deems them not loyal enough.

Ironbite-and that changes on an hourly basis.

Oh, of course. But one surefire way of getting on his bad side is appearing to criticise him.

Every single one went up there with the intention of spending all their time screaming that Cohen was a liar, and he was just trying to cash in with a book deal.  The general consensus is that they came off like a bunch of Biff Tannens.

Rich and powerful and able to get away with all their crimes unless someone literally uses a time machine to stop them?

Honestly, it reminds me of some paranoid despot's flunkies going out of their way to show that of course they're loyal to him and they completely believe in him. Because they know that if he ever suspects them of not supporting him enough, well...

I meant 1955 teenage Biff, not alt-1985 all-powerful Biff.  As in, acting like aggressive bullies.
