Sunday Talks: Senator Graham Discusses Congressional Plan to Block National Security Declaration and President Trump Veto…

Senator Lindsey Graham appears on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the democrat plan for a bill to block President Trump’s national security declaration for border security.  Senator Graham anticipates any resolution or bill will not survive a veto from the president.

Senator Graham has high praise for the foreign policy of President Trump as it pertains to Venezuela and Syria.  The comments on Syria are enlightening.

No matter what he did in the past, he is TOTALLY flipped now. I and others can see it, others NEVER will. Just wait till his line of questioning to BK during confirmation becomes apparent and relevant…grin.

          If you STILL haven’t figured it out, THE VERY SAME traitors that came up with “pee papers dossier” are running the mid-east regime change plan, a plan that all started with the USA giving WMD’s to Saddam to use on Iran and then going to war over those same, already expended, WMD’s.

          God I wish you people would just figure this out once and for all, so we can stop pretending there is anything “patriotic” about war in the mid-east or the nonsense the Pentagon keeps spewing about Assad “gassing his own people”.

      I agree. Lindsay is not to be trusted which means he’s not the best spokesperson. If he is behind something, I question it. I sometimes think POTUS is completely surrounded. He used to hear us better when he had the time prior to election…now he is inundated with propaganda from vacillating decepticon shills like Lindsay. We have to continue to make our voices heard to POTUS if we suspect foul play. Case in example is POTUS trying to withdraw from Syria now. I remember a CTH commenter who went nutso early on over Syria. I don’t think Trump knew about the drone strike on an American’s 8 year old daughter after her father and 13 year old brother was killed.

      I used to agree with you, but then started to think that it’s pretty foolish to think that President Trump couldn’t win someone over. We believe he can win voters, why can’t he win senators? The president went out of his way to spend lots of time with Graham since he was elected and Graham has shown moves into the president’s corner on many issues. His votes have reflected it. And his background was as a solid conservative when he first went to Washington years ago. It got me thinking that maybe he’s seen the error in some of his ways and the president has won him over.

      Or maybe I’m wrong and President Trump, one of the greatest marketing and persuasion experts in American history couldn’t do that.

      I have chosen to do as Reagan would do and that’s trust him with great caution (trust but verify).

      Yes. The National Emergencies Act (NEA1976, 50USC§1601-1651) specifically provides that Congress may over rule the President by passing a joint resolution to that effect. Such a joint resolution has been introduced in both the House and Senate.
      But such a joint resolution can be vetoed, making the overrule Presidential emergency declaration hurdle 2/3 in both houses rather than 51%. Aint gonna happen. Dem futility.

          This is why the POTUS should simply pull troops from foreign assignments and post them on OUR BORDERS instead. Notice Graham is still spewing the same lies that the RUSSIANS are the problem in Syria and that Assad is somehow supporting ISIS. All part of the same scam he and McLame pushed trying to start yet another war there.

        Lurking Lawyer cited specifics.

        Even without cites there is nothing that says they could not pass a resolution declaring that a national emergency (note lower case for general case) does not exist. For instance,
        – Japanese bombing Pearl Harbor was not a day which will live on in infamy and territory will be ceded. Or,
        – Countless poorly organized an lightly (if) armed persons crossing the southern border in not an emergency and the Executive will not impede their movement. Or,
        – The US unilaterally surrenders sovereignty to the UN.

        The President can veto and if overriden it is done. I guess the Executive would take it to SCOTUS though.

              Lindsey wanted to be president, and it seems POTUS is saying, “OK, if you are such a hot shot, tackle these problems….Syria, Russia hoax, etc” And it seems POTUS is doing the same for Rubio, with respect to Venezuela. Getting these “do-nothings” on-board sounds like a great strategy.

    He made the point they immediately notified Senator Feinstein she had a Chinese spy on her staff and never treated her or her people as targets. He makes the point a counterintelligence Investigation is designed to protect American citizens.

    He mentions what has been obvious from the beggining that no effort was ever made to notify the President of the Intelligence communities “concerns” on the Russia meddling nor to take any precautionary measures….instead they treated him and his campaign as targets and willing participants.

So far he’s gotten tax reform from Congress, the rest he’s basically done on his own, but he still needs transactional friends.

    Dens doubling down of stupidity, just as PDJT planned.

    The non emergency funding tranches are $0.6 Treasury forfeiture and $2.8 billion under 10USC284, which Mulvaney says will be spent first on top of the ~$1.4 billion in the funding bill. That totals $4.8, ~85% of the requested $5.7. AND, the 14 miles of replacement 30’ bollard in San Diego was bid out at $101 million, or $7.2 million per mile. At that rate, the $4.8 buys 660 miles of ‘wall, when only 270 was planned with the $5.7 billion.

    So as LG points out, the emergency repeal will pass the House Tuesday. It might pass the Senate, thanks to RINOs Collins an Murkowski. PDJT will ‘100%’ veto, and no way does the Senate override. DOA, just a futile and irrelevant political gesture.

    And, the various anti emergency lawsuits do not even yet have standing because of the spending sequence. Plus a win for the in the 9th just sets up another SCOTUS confrontation AFTER at least 85% of the planned wall is built at all the 10 of 17 top priority corridors. All thatndoes is hand PDJT another terrific 2020 election issue.

        Maine will likely replace her with either a Democrat or another liberal Republican just like Collins. Maine’s population is clustered in its 5 most “Downeast” counties (actually southwesternmost per geography) which vote mostly Democrat. The greater Portland area has 40% of the states total population.

        The state voted for Hillary over DJT in 2016 by 357K to 335K. And 37% of registered voters in the state are not affiliated with any party.

      Thanks, Ristvan, for the usual excellent points on the likely budget strategy for the wall. Given that VSGPDJT takes great pride in the building of the American Embassy in Jerusalem for a mere fraction of the budgeted cost, it occurs to be that the stated estimates for the border wall have likely been greatly exaggerated. That is, POTUS has been using a $25B figure as a “full funding” level, but I suspect the entire wall can be built at half the cost. If the $4.8M/mile cost holds, then the full 2200 miles could be built for $10.5B. I would venture that the wall will be completed in 2019 with funds “found” in government appropriations already made. The illusion being that POTUS is foiled via lower appropriations is the trick!

  10. The law itself allows for a Congressional over-ride. A 1980’s SCOTUS ruling affirms the Executive’s right to veto. There is probably not even a two-thirds supermajority in the House, let alone the Senate. So this is what Congress does best: futile grandstanding. And, as explained, the Emergency funds are only a part, and they come later, anyway. Since there is already a remedy in the Congressional over-ride, that should be the end of it. Except Hawaii judges.

    A wall is good. Even better would be real laws. Even better would be two patriotic parties instead of half of one.

      3) The people voting are rewarded for voting for dems.

      For context: if it were not for immigration, dems would win very few local, let alone national elections. The dems are counting on “inevitable” demographic shift, as if our children mysteriously become non-white, socialist “minorities”. But of course they don’t, they are just being out-voted by a constant influx of new-comers.

    Well hey, today Senator Graham sounded like a real, patriotic American; tomorrow he may sound like a traitor. Guess it just depends upon which side of the bed he wakes up on; as to his mood for the day.
    However, it is best to never, ever completely trust him. Actions speak louder that words.

      He’s been a consistent Trump ally for some time now. There was disagreement about pulling out troops from Syria, and I actually think that Graham was right, it’s best to leave some troops there. He made a great argument for it during the interview and praised Trump for changing a little bit from the original goal. It’s all good.

    Tucker Carlson’s excellent book “Ship of Fools” outlines Cesar Chavez’s factual history. It was revealing to me considering he’s still one of the left’s greatest Icons. I knew about him at the time but “illegal immigration” was not (I think) as volatile an issue then as it is now except in Calif. etc.

    “6 libraries, 11 Parks, several roads and 25 public schools” are named after him. While, he was a fearless defender of his legal immigrant farm workers and via strikes and boycotts, he hated illegal immigration or “wetbacks” because “illegals will always work for less” etc. In this age of tearing down statues and destroying the reputations of the honored dead like John Wayne, when will the open border crowd that purport to value illegal immigrants high above legal immigrants and citizens tear his name off all the aforementioned landmarks and buildings? (Note: I am not in favor of any of these feel good betrayals of past people)

    Shikes, Lindsey Graham now has a spine? He was a mcstain lackey for years, wondering what Mcstain had on him? Now all of a sudden Lindsay is a rock ribbed Trump supporting conservative?
    Did the Kavanaugh smear campaign trigger a come to Jesus moment for Lindsay?
    I certainly enjoy this version better than the past one

    Senator Graham likes attention and played his cards right in order to get it.. He has become quite popular on the networks. Getting frequent air time..

    He is a politician first.. And will go whichever way the wind is blowing.. He recognized this particular niche, and utilized it.. Picked the populist wave.. It’s a big one..

    You have to admit, he’s a pretty darn good surfer.. He’s been riding this wave and is still up.. And is working it well.. He’s entertaining to watch and draws crowds..

    If you hang your emotions on him, you risk being disappointed.. But if you watch for the art of mere political gamesmanship, he’s a smart one..

      Agree.

      Additionally, I watched with a different viewpoint. I had just had a semi-contentious conversation with my millennial son who does NOT like PDJT. I watched this interview thinking that it will be a GREAT one to send to my son! Defense of President Trump as it relates to very specific issues is just what he needs to hear…..and not from Mom! So thanks, Lindsey.👍🏻🇺🇸👍🏻🇺🇸

        My brother-in-law and his wife are hosting his wife’s millennial daughter and her husband while they’re building a new home. They cannot even watch FOX w/o the millennials coming unglued. So politics is not discussed when they’re around. I’m hoping these millennials get a grasp on reality as they grapple with what the Dimms are going to do to this country if they get the chance.

      Or maybe he just agrees with the President. Why do you not consider that option? Why do you (and others) always assume that Graham is self-serving? Trump has worked miracles in just 2 years. Graham is also well aware of the Dems’ attempt to stage a goup. I think Graham is impressed with Trump, not always in agreement but enough for him to be a Trump ally.

  26. Folks, There are 2 reasons Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has had a Change-Of-Heart with concerns to Pres. Trump.
    1) John “Songbird” McCain died.
    2) While on the Senate Judiciary Committee he has seen the DEPTHS-OF-CORRUPTION the FAILED Obama Admin. committed to..DESTROY…OUR Country.

  27. Lindsey sounded positive and supportive on a number of subjects–the wall, Venezuela, and the Syrian strategy (ok, 400 not 200 left behind but a far better result than 2500 people). Plus, he credits POTUS with defeating ISIS (down to a couple of blocks of territory–where was BHO he says). Plus there are non U.S. troops now in Syria–200 US forces brings 1000 European troops.

    It looks like POTUS has made a decent ally. Heck, no senator will ever want to seem like a total 100% supporter…gotta take what we can get in the world of reality, folks.

    And, did anyone else notice the fantastic clip of Bartiromo’s interview with Pompeo about Huawei and how we are using our leverage with Europeans, 5 Eyes, etc. to ensure that the Huawei 5G standard does not prevail. Like a boss, the U.S.–don’t pick Chinese tech or you’ll use access to American info and systems (much like occurred with POTUS exiting the JCPOA and exerting major pressure on others to conform as well).

    Lindsay gets this and compliments Pompeo at Maria’s prompting.

    We are so darn fortunate to have a great team along with Pres. Trump to protect us on these many critical, and overlapping issues.

    Read Sundance’s opening sentence again as it says it all about the GOPe and Lindsey Graham’s Republican friends. They fact that a bill or resolution would PASS the Senate and rely on sustaining a Presidential veto says it all in my mind.

    Notice, Graham had not tough love words for his Republican friends in the Senate or House who support this political crap. Graham is and always will be a swamp loving neverTrump GOPe member, looking out for his phony baloney job and the party.

    This will be the big reveal….if McConnell puts a bill up for a vote on the Senate floor to block the national emergency declaration. Remember the times McConnell has gone on and on about not bothering to put a bill up for vote he knows President Trump will veto? “I support PDJT and will not waste his time”. President Trump has said “100%” when asked if he’ll veto it. If McConnell puts it up for a vote, the mask will be removed and forever remain in the trash heap of anti-Trump memorabilia.
