Sweden has a sovereign Parliament so ultimately it can override any judicial decision and it certainly can't be bound by a past Parliament.

Sure, in a strictly hypothetical situation, but not in a reality based argument.

I remember the Republican primaries in 2008. With Mitt Romney and the Clown car and every other day a different Republican was ahead.
At some point the front runners were Newt and Rick Perry.  :doge

What mostly happened was that one of them suddenly rose to the top (such as Herman Cain or Perry) and then all the camera's would be fixated on the front runner and the more they spoke, the worse they polled.
Santorum nearly beat Romney though. He spend some time under the radar and made a splash at the end after Newt imploded.

(Image removed from quote.)

The 2012 GOP primary was quite the rollercoaster ride, as I recall. One person [not Romney] would briefly rise to the top based on some comment they said or whatever and suddenly the conservative press would latch on to them as the party savior, only for the bright lights to expose the fact that they were actually terrible. Also, I think Cain had some claims made against him regarding sexual impropriety. And Bachmann was just insane.

Even Rick Perry was briefly at the top, before the infamous GOP debate where he was exposed as a dumb moron man.

He's coming to terms in his own way that once he declares a national emergency, Trump is admitting he's a terrible negotiator. Art of the Deal man doesn't want to take that hit to the ego just yet, that's why he's hedging.

Trump doesn’t really come to terms with anything imo.

Anyways, from my reading, his big speech was basically the set up to announce a national emergency but he was talked down out of it in the 11th hour. Which makes sense as to why in the days preceding they were sending out all these stalking horses.

Like invading Venezuela or firing Rosenstein, if Trump had his way I suspect it would of already happened but his legal and political team still seem somewhat capable of temporarily talking him out of his worst impulses. In the case of Venezuella he moves onto the next shiny object, in this case I think he ultimately does it with GOP encouragement. We’ll see.

I think they’re worried that the national emergency declaration will end up roiling markets and end up getting the Republican senate to vote against it. But it’s still probably his best option

There's going to be 100 candidates in the Democratic primary and 98 of them are going to be using the exact same messaging. Can't wait.

This tsa thing is what’s going to actually make the shutdown boil over.
Even if you got one to say live on air: "I care that I'm not getting paid!" 
Trump would still insist that government workers prefer the wall over payment.

At this point the GOP prefers the Emergeny because that's an 'easy' way to end the shutdown.
But Trump is doubling down as always on getting the Democrats to sign for the wall.

Google them and you can see without even clicking
1) Publically funded
2) takes Ontario Health Insurance plan (evil socialized medicine)
3) one of the best hernia hospitals in the world.
4) takes walk ins


Also, if you ever have American non surgery to treat something not life threatening, multiple month waits are very common. I know multiple people who have had knee replacements who were on crutches for well over a month before getting in for the procedure. And oftentimes its a 3-6 week wait to even get in to see the specialist.
