This is quite the headline for liberal newspaper Los Angeles Times.
(Pelosi, Waters, Schiff, Feinstein country)

Trump's 'national emergency' just played the Democrats for suckers

All I'm saying is that Pelosi picked a really stupid way to make her point and that she handed the GOP and NRA a goldmine for 2020.

As for the rest, well...you're assuming a lot.

That is a mudpit thread. There can be multiple if one is a mudpit.
Good thing, too. There are many items that I would address, but being in the Mudpit, I don't even click on them. Just my small way of improving the tenor of the site.

Eh, I've been navigating that one alright, positioned comfortably in the middle of the issue.

Only encountered minor trolling to actual debate.

Keep non-citizens and criminals out of the country. Look at some being caught at the border coming from Asia.

She is just pointing out the ramifications of using Presidential rights frivolously. If Trump can do it for the wall, why can't another President do it for guns, healthcare or whatever hot button issue that Congress refuses to pass that is in vogue at that time?

The following data is from Wikipedia:
  • National Emergency declared April 12, 2010 by Barack Obama: "Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Conflict in Somalia (Executive Order 13536)" - Still in effect.

Just ignore the racists and they'll fade away into oblivion. We did it here with the KKK; it works.

Amazing... Trump just told the American people what many of us already knew... he can do the jobs he needs to do with much less than Congress appropriates! Well, duh... just stop spending $500 for a toilet seat cover.

So, based on what I have heard, the wall is going to be built using excess spending that isn't needed elsewhere. Considering that excess money is coming from income received by the government, and considering that El Chapo has forfeited several times the cost of the wall to the US government, and considering that El Chapo is Mexican and was one of the higher ranking members of the Mexican drug cartels... that means...

MEXICAN CARTELS ARE PAYING FOR THE WALL!


Is anybody tired of winning yet?

Good lord MAN ZIM !!!! Are you trying to break the INTERNETZ by using WMT Weapons of Mass Triggering ?

I can only hope that the US gov't is actually able to get their hands on el chapos billions and trump to get up in one of the debates with his smirk and say "See I told you I would get Mexico to pay for it". haha .

Imagine if Obama had done this to build his fortress, but you all would have supported it then? or had Hillary won you would for sure of have supported her doing something like this

Border security is essential to national defense and national defense is one of the primary duties of the president. If Obama or Hillary had declared a national emergency to build a border wall, I'd have been 100% supportive of it.

I think building the wall before going after the companies that are giving illegals incentives and encouraging them to come here is the the most cost prohibitive and least effective way to go. I also didn't vote for trump.

BUT

Trump ran with the campaign promise to build the wall and he won the election . So since the democrats aren't playing ball he is looking to deliver his campaign promise. I didn't vote for him nor do i think the wall will be effective how its being implemented but I can't fault him for delivering a campaign promise at what ever legal means necessary. Don't recall any politicians doing as such

Since we are doing loops in logic we could also just say all that el chapo money is simply stolen from the american public by the usa gov. via the war on drugs.

So we get the wall AND money back that was stolen from us? I hadn't thought of that... great point!

I like your logic.

He’s doing it. Just like he said. Yet ANOTHER campaign promise kept.

The wall is ALREADY being built. Now he’s going to add a whole lot more construction.
A big, beautiful wall.

Six years until he steps aside and let’s another republican carry on his great plans.

The “REEEEEEEEEE” is outstanding.
