    I’m a little worried. I think the President made a big mistake during the questioning. Knowing that this declaration of a national emergency will be challenged in court, I don’t think he shoukd have said “I didn’t need to do this.” And he connected it to the 2020 election. The Dems are going to jump on that with the court.

      The language was that the Dems are obstructionists. They did it only for their 2020 election. When you look at their history, it looks to be true.

        But what about saying “I didn’t need to do this but I’drather do it much faster.” In court, that makes it sound like it isn’t an emergency, just his impatience. I know what he means but how will the court interpret it.

          I didn’t see the whole of the presser, but perhaps, in context, he meant that politically he didn’t need to do “it,” Since the press and the Dems love to call his promise to build a wall a “vanity project” perhaps he was saying he didn’t have to build a barrier to keep his base, but that he wanted to do it fast because it’s needed NOW.

      She is working in person at the Court again? Good. I didn’t subscribe to the “she is dead” theory but I wasn’t sold that she was fully operation during the entire “work from home” period and truly think that some of her work was done in her name as she would want it to be done while she was recuperating.

      Back or not, she is not well and will retire soon. If health doesn’t force her to do so in ’19 then she will do in ’20 hoping for a Dem win.

        Given the Republicans denied Obama his 2016 appointee, she will likely retire (if alive) in 2020. The Republicans will of course honor their 2016 behavior to deny the President a supreme court nomination, claiming the precedent they set in 2016 and that the democrats would act as honorably (//sarc).

        Term limits for Congress would be great but will never happen. You’ll never get them to vote themselves a limit on how long they can serve. It’s up to the voters to limit their terms by voting them out, and that won’t happen the way it should until a lot more people start doing their civic duty and getting involved in the voting process. Remember, 50% of eligible voters don’t vote!

      Exact same thing killed Scott Adams son. He thought he was taking Oxy but it was actually Fentanyl, which is cheaper and more plentiful so the drug dealers make it and tell people it’s whatever they want. it’s multiple times more powerful, though, so everybody overdoses on it.

      The whole thing is horrible. People addicted to pain killers more than they are street drugs and now the pain killers ARE the street drugs.

      I largely blame doctors, by the way. I had a Dentist one time tell me after a root canal, “Hey, here’s a pain prescription, but you look like a tough guy. If you can handle it, don’t even get the prescription filled.”

        Massachusetts has a lawsuit against the Sackler family that owns and runs Purdue Pharmaceuticals, which makes OxyContin. The details the commonwealth alleges about how Purdue intentionally targeted doctors who were high prescribers, pushed sales people to get Oxy out on the street knowing its dangers, etc., and how the Sacklers took hundreds of millions of dollars out of the company, effectively preventing it from diversifying into other drugs, are really shocking.

Now we are where we are because the President trusted Paul Ryan – he was warned.

        I’ll go further – Mitch McConnell can’t be trusted either. But, I guess he’ll have to find that out for himself and we will get screwed again. The GOP-e is laughing at us.

    Yesterday, I believe, there was a post forwarding the argument that since the current funding law is newer than the National Emergency law, the courts, using a “newer law takes precedence” argument, would rule that the National Emergency could not overrule the current funding law.

    Here’s an excerpt from 50USC Chap 34, Sec 1621(b) that says differently:

    “No law enacted after September 14, 1976, shall supersede this subchapter unless it does so in specific terms, referring to this subchapter, and declaring that the new law supersedes the provisions of this subchapter.”

    The Cart Analogy and Human Nature. (Accurate Reddit Post)

    “When you have a lot of people pulling the cart and very few people in the cart, it’s easy for people to pull. But over time those people who are closest to the cart look over their shoulder at the people in the cart kicking their feet up and say “screw it” I’m working too hard let me jump in. Then those left pulling have to work a bit harder to move the increasing load. Eventually the ratio flips and more people are in the cart than pulling the cart. What does than mean in the real world? When you look at the guy riding in the cart who gets 35K in social services for doing nothing, why bust your ass to get 40K? Jump right in!”

    As more Cart Riders outnumber the Cart Pullers, the cart slows and eventually stops.

      Same source as previous post.

      ” I believe it takes three generations for socialism to destroy a society.

      1st Generation: A well functioning free-market society. They’ve all had to work hard for everything they have. They decide to implement a welfare state to help those in their society who are less fortunate, mostly the disabled and elderly poor. People are ashamed to take government handouts and only do it if they are desperately in need.

      2nd Generation: There is no longer a social stigma associated to government handouts. Fraud is rampant throughout the system. Government programs have expanded well past the welfare state and now cover education and universal healthcare. Cradle-to-grave government programs are seen as a worthy goal. People who work hard see fully capable adults doing as well or better by lazily leeching off the government. Any attempts at reform are treated as attacks against the disabled and elderly poor, and possibly racist as well.

      3rd Generation: Government handouts are seen as an entitlement, a fundamental right of every citizen (and non-citizen). Anything that’s not paid for by the government should be paid for by the government. By this point the private sector has been mostly destroyed and the government is running huge deficits and starting to feel the pressure of their enormous debt. Financial collapse in inevitable.”

        Blame it on The Banksters. On one of his trips to England, Benjamin Franklin explained why the colonies had no poor houses: “That is simple. In the Colonies, we issue our own paper money. It is called ‘Colonial Scrip.’ We issue it in proper proportion to make the goods and pass easily from the producers to the consumers. In this manner, creating ourselves our own paper money, we control its purchasing power and we have no interest to pay to no one.”….”…the British Parliament (thus passed) a law that prohibited the Colonies from using their scrip money, and then ordered them to use only the gold and silver money that was provided in sufficient quantity by the English bankers. Then began in America the plague of debt-money, which has never since brought so many curses to the American people.”

        https://rense.com/general66/nobeyb.htm

        This mess has been going on ever since, even after the American Revolution when the Brits ignored that the Colonies won their freedom and came back for more. When they lost the War of 1812, their bankers kept hammering to disrupt the U.S. sovereignty by engaging Hamilton to fight for a central bank modeled off the Bank of England. When Jefferson and Jackson fought off that encroachment on the U.S. monetary system, the banksters joined together to instigate the War Between the States to divide the country into more manageable chunks that they hoped could be bent by indebtedness. Lincoln upset their plans by issuing “greenbacks” to pay off debts, and we all know what happened to him.

        Enter Karl Marx, who revolted against the monarchies of Europe that enslaved the populations in endless serfdom from which they could not escape. This class warfare and the end of slavery were both underwritten by the Rothschilds’ banking system as conflict creates opportunities for loans to warring nations, who will pay any interest necessary for access to money for arms, soldiers and materiel. It also allowed those with money to buy up assets for pennies on the dollar to expand their wealth internationally.

        When McKinley insisted on a gold standard backing paper currency, he, too, was assassinated. Meanwhile, socialism had taken hold in the UK underwritten by the Rothschilds and their agents, then expanded into the U.S. via Woodrow Wilson’s puppet meister, Edward House, whose father was a Rothschild agent. The rest is history that has been rewritten to hide the fingers of the totalitarian NWO, which begat WWI and the League of Nations and all the wars thereafter.

        While JFK had many enemies for various reasons, his insistence on returning the right to create and issue currency to the U.S. Treasury instead of the private banksters’ Federal Reserve Bank…well, one begins to notice a common thread resulting in such untimely deaths. Alas, all such efforts to free the U.S. from mountingdebt is kicked down the road with Ron and Rand Paul standing alone in recognition of the harm done to the citizens who foot the bills.

        After The Wall goes up, the Fed must come down.

      And I did: all the ( no longer illegal) immigrants will spread out more evenly. They will not have to stay in California or sanctuary cities in texas. They are now free to settle anywhere.
      Phew.

        Hi Lolli. Vote democrat next time. You’re a loser. Loser’s don’t belong on the Trump Train. When the going gets hard, you start complaing. You have a weak back. You’re not welcome.

        The bill was passed and was Veto Proof. That means the President cannot veto it without it being over rode.

        Instead you’d like to bitch and complain because that’s what you do, bitch and complain. Grow up. Start pulling. Stop complaining. Work harder.

        Make a difference for once.

    The FAKE NEWS continues to “Fact Check” President Trump with their ridiculous narrative.

    CNN’s Kirsten Powers keeps pushing this nonsense:

    Border Patrol says the President is WRONG about the drugs coming into this country. They report that MOST of the drugs are seized at “Points of Entry”.

    Someone please tell the FAKE NEWS that the problem is not with the drugs that have been seized……. the problem is with the drugs that have NOT been seized….it’s with the drugs that make it across the border at places other than the Points of Entry.

    Seriously, how can journalists be this stupid? And I think she’s even a lawyer.

    Basic civics, folks. Our President is not a King or a Tyrant, if the Congress puts their muscle into legislation with a veto-proof majority, then the citizenry must remedy the wrong at the ballot box. This is how our government works: Equal Powers. Political expediency won out today because the alternative was another shutdown. Shutdown=Global political suicide, it’s not complicated. So save all the squealing for the next election.

    Unreasonable expectations here…for crying out loud, people, I have never seen a man fight so hard in this office! And he talks to us, thinks about us, listens to us, and fights for us, while he’s kicking ass and taking names.

    For the last 25 years, Presidents Clinton, W & O have exercised their presidential power to do so and opposition parties did not file lawsuits challenging their right to do so. Until now (most likely).

        You possibly misunderstood Meadows. The NEA of 1976 gives Congress the right to overrule or reverse a POTUS NE by simple majority vote of a joint nullifying resolution. But then POTUS can veto, and that forces the nullification to be 2/3 of both branches of Congress.
        Meadows is saying the national emergency nullification would fail the veto override, IF the Dems attempted it.
        PDJT is counting on lawsuits such as ACLU has filed and Newsom announced CA will.
        It makes its way to a SCOTUS ruling just in time to be a big deal for the 2020 election.

    So, let’s take a step back and think a bit about all this: We currently do not have a secure border with Mexico. It has not been secure for decades. Drugs, illegal alien criminals, and terrorists have come in and continue to come in. Because of the acts of Congress in this most recent betrayal of America, the border will remain unsecured. President Trump may try to fight this with a declaration of national emergency, but -as he admitted- the lunatic liberals will fight him tooth an nail in courts -and may even win. So in the end NOTHING HAS CHANGED. We are in exactly the same situation we were in yesterday and the day before and the year before and the decade before. So, why is everyone panicking? I am not trying to say we do not need to secure the border – I believe in wall is necessary – but what I am pointing out is that literally nothing has changed with the passing of this horrendous law or the declaration of a national emergency. We are in exactly the same situation we have been in for decades. More caravans will come in. More illegals will come in. More drugs will come in. The “War on Drugs” continues. The “Mexican Invasion” continues. It is horrible, true enough, but it is nothing new. President Trump will keep fighting, but for now, Congress has decided they like the illegals and drug cartels more than American citizens. Nothing has changed. The endless war continues.

    Just like the debt. No matter how much President Trump has tried to bring up the American economy to pay off the debt, Congress and the bloated bureaucracy continues to accumulate debt at an accelerated rate. Same with the swamp. No matter how much President Trump has tried to fight it, the FBI and the DOJ and all the other organizations are sill corrupt to the core. Nothing has changed.

    I am not saying President Trump has failed or is failing. I am simply admitting the war goes on and one man – no matter how great – can win it. I don’t even think if President Trump is re-elected and Republicans re-take the House and Senate in 2020 that these problems will be fixed. Hell, even if Republicans win for the next 20 years, it is unlikely these problems will be fixed. They may never be fixed. Something “big” has to force us to change. And what that something is, I have no idea.

    I would love to see President Trump win with this and all his struggles, but I now believe these issues are bigger than him. I stand with President Trump and I will not waiver in my support of him, but frankly my expectations of what can actually be accomplished has fallen significantly. Not because of President Trump’s actions, but because of the endless swamp that is rising around him.

      What HAS changed is that the word is out to rush our southern border and estimates of 30,000 to 60,000 invaders are crossing our borders monthly (I posit soon to be weekly). We’ve already been told that we can’t deport the 22,000,000+ already here illegally. Cost of dealing with the 22M illegals already here exceeds $150,000,000,000 (with a B) annually for a country that’s already $22,000,000,000,000 (with a T) in debt. If you can’t read these tea leaves you are willfully blind. The enemy is intent on the destruction of our economy and our culture.

    I wonder about a strategy.

    As soon as PTrump does something apt to be challenged in court, a conservative legal group in Texas files for an immediate TRO based on all the lib talking points that at least have some logical support.

    If the legal group loses (they probably will), they immediately appeal to the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court for a ruling. Probably lose again.

    Then, when they Dimms find their favorite lib judge who rules against PTrump, then we have conflicting rulings in the lower courts which should then make their way up to the Supreme Court.

    Just a thought. I have no expertise in this area.
