"Of the 136 emergency powers authorized by the U.S. Congress, 96 of which can be activated by the president alone...A couple are: Allows the president to shut down or take over radio stations and even suspend a law that prohibits government testing of chemical and biological weapons on unwitting human subjects."


quote: The Washington Post Wednesday, January 9, 2019 --- Elizabeth Goltien of the Brennan Center for Justice

Somehow, I have this feeling that the Congressional Democrats would prefer Trump to conduct biological and chemical weapons tests on unwitting subjects than to build a wall...

From the Obama Era, when Democrats voted FOR More Physical Barriers.


“United States is stupid … I come back every time,” asserted Mexican national Rolando Mota-Campos to a Virginia-based immigration agent after his 11th arrest — for crimes ranging from abduction, assault, four DUIs, vehicular assault, attempted robbery, and domestic violence.

Mota-Campos has been deported three times and has vowed to return again

I wish the President would have reserved more TV time last night. He could have played the clips of Obama, Schumer, Pelosi advocating for a border barrier. Those who are against Trump do not watch channels/shows that show those clips. Last night would have been the perfect time to show them. What a missed opportunity!

Donald Trump told someone this evening that going to Laredo, Texas tomorrow is now a waste of time. He's already decided what he's going to do. But, the pre-planning and guests there to greet him are all set up, sooo..it's off to Laredo he goes.

This evening, Senator Lindsay Graham says "It is time" for President Trump to invoke his emergency powers to build the wall, and then sign one of the bills to reopen the government.

Wow. Look how many "State of Emergency" declarations are still in effect from past Presidents...


More than two dozen national emergencies are already in effect from past presidents, many of them already renewed by Trump.

See the graph here: www.cnn.com...

President OBAMA is responsible for 12 of them. The Mainstream Media would have you believe that if President Trump declares one to protect Americans, it would be a rare thing and a bad thing. That is Bullchit!

I read that there are about 30 in effect for one reason or another. The issue is that Trump is threatening to use it to advance a domestic policy which many see as a abuse of power

People can SEE it as advancing a domestic policy, or they can SEE it as reducing damage done to Americans by Illegal aliens and Illegal drugs.

The only 2 opinions that really count in the near term, are those of President Trump, and those of the Supreme Court.

American voter's opinion will count eventually, but not until 2020.

BREAKING: President Trump says that he's HOLDING OFF on declaring a National Emergency at the moment.
www.mercurynews.com...

Maybe he senses the mood of the country turning against Pelosi and Schumer.

Word is getting around how Schumer and Pelosi have been 100% for physical barriers at the US-Mex border... for years. Right up until President Trump wanted to build upon the barriers Schumer and Pelosi put there, between 2007 and 2013.

(Further hysterical laughter)
I think that he realises that the country blames him, not the Democrats, and that he is now utterly desperate as he has painted himself into a corner.

Maybe he sees how unpopular his idea is and hes back peddling again.

There needs to be an actual emergency though and there is nothing that has changed at the southern border.
Immigration over the southern border is way down from where it was. They are actually afraid of trumps laws and his posse.
If it wasnt an emergency before this week then they surely are not a threat now.

I am all for useing Pentagon funds for the wall. You barely need 5% of the budget in year one, and then barely a half percent annually for however many years. He should just add to the thirty National emergencies already active as many of them actually have little to nothing to do with the USA other than as an excuse to deploy sanctions or soldiers on a foreign body.

Maybe he can cancel many of the existing ones as a trade-off. Cancel five existing National emergencies in exchange for this one. That could be interesting.

Sorry for late reply. Not 100% sure (how to move on enemies ... ), but he seems to have PO'd everyone in DC so he might have a better bead on that. He is actually pulling back resources to this country and making sure our borders are strong. Purposefully letting our corporations know they need to hire/educate/train Americans first and build a better life, here, and not over there. That is not our job.
