Has Nadler or Pelosi or AOC or OMAR chimed in yet to say the Supreme Court is "misinformed" and "thinks it's above the law"? (That's they're favorite low-IQ words this week.)

No they control the budget, not how it is specifically allocated.

And five million leeches will be losing food-stamps (or whatever they're called now). Some "chopping" as you call it, is GOOD.

www.npr.org... then why did the military brass ok this transfer of 1 billion dollars for the wall ?

www.usatoday.com... then there was this brefiing where they said it is do able and not likely to impact major dod operations

Robert McMahon, assistant secretary of Defense for sustainment, told lawmakers that construction projects would be delayed but not canceled in response to President Donald Trump's declaration of a national emergency. The projects chosen will have a minimal effect on readiness to fight, he said. Requests for additional funding will come in Trump's 2020 budget for the Pentagon, McMahon said.


but the dem politicians are sure grumpy about it

www.militarytimes.com... this one talks about how they wanted to know how it could improve military readiness

They hear a wanna-be on CNN or MSNBC tell a flat out lie (like Nadler did today about Mueller) and then come to this forum, repeating that lie....mistakenly thinking it's true.

MSM = Enemy of America and Americans.

This should come as no surprise. The president had full authority to build the wall in the manner in which he is. Private citizens are also building huge sections of wall.

There's nothing democrats can do anymore. It's over for them. They lost it all. Just waiting for them to realize it.


They have realized it, that and the courts being stocked with conservatives and Constitutionalists.

What do you think the last 3 years of whining has been about? The judicial vacancies at every level of the Justice system made the 2016 election the most important election in decades and decades.

If the Dems had won, it would have been stacked to the gills with activist judges hell bent on dismantling the Constitution and taking the country hard to the left.

The blew a once in a century chance and have bee sniveling about it ever since.

I love it.

President Trump has single handedly brought about a complete reversal in the direction of this country, by virtue of his SCOTUS nominations.

It is highly probable that upon reelection, he will get to nominate at least one more justice, thus insuring the defense of the Constitution for decades to come.

That fact that the lefty socialist will scream like their hair is ablaze will be a ridiculously funny side benifit. I'm usually not one to take enjoyment from another's misery, in this case I will make an exception.

I shudder to think about the ramifications had Trump not been victorious.

Although this doesn't have anything to do with food stamps, some of those contractors finding themselves out of expected work may be resorting to food stamps.

Well, I'm pretty sure Ginsberg won't last another 5 years.

I saw McConnell priming the pump for that possibility yesterday. He was asked about confirming Justices in the last year of a Presidency. He stated that it was not proper to approve a Supreme Court Justice in the final year of a President's final term, when the Senate majority is of a different party than the President. Which means that as long as the Republicans hold the Senate (likely the way things are going), Trump can nominate Justices up until the day he exits office according to the Senate majority leader.

To delay legal challenges, the White House is planning to exhaust $2.5 billion in Pentagon funds appropriated for counter-drug operations before spending military construction dollars.
www.military.com...

The only legal requirement to shift the money is that it must improve troops' effectiveness, leaving that call entirely to Shanahan's discretion. Pentagon officials have said that a lengthened wall would make troops at the border more effective at halting illegal border crossings and drug-smuggling.


Why this?

The US border situation isn’t a national emergency, Pentagon officials tell Congress qz.com...

Do you find it concerning that there were 4 dissenting opinions on something that seems pretty clear cut as a matter of law?

I hate the idea of activism on the SC. I understand differences in interpretation on some issues, but too often it is more a case of advancing ideology, rather than the actual legal statutes, and case precedence.

The authors of our Constitution did not intend it to be this way. I have to assume all the justices have read the Federalist papers, and understand the thought processes rationale of the document. Therefore, IMO, they must be guilty of subverting the very premise they are sworn to uphold.

End rant.......

Because the President hadn't declared a national emergency on January 29th, when Congress "grilled" Pentagon Officials. He declared it on February 15th. Only the President of the United States has the authority to declare a national emergency. Until such happens/happened, nobody in the Pentagon would have called, publicly considered, or publicly referred to anything as a "national emergency" because the Pentagon operates under an official authority matrix by which this type of detail is respected above the gamesmanship and twisted finageling of narratives seen within politicians, pundits, the media, and online forum keyboard warriors.

Nothing the Pentagon officials said negated or lessened the President's declaration.

I'd expect 2 with the potential for 3. Ginsberg, obviously, is about as lithe as a fossil and I believe Clarence Thomas will step down during Trump's second term and sort of take one for the team. Stephen Breyer, meanwhile, is now in his 80s. If he made it to the end of Trump's second term, he'd actually become the fifth oldest SCOTUS justice in history.

first your link is from january a full 7 months behind where we are now (minus 3 days)
mediabiasfactcheck.com...

Analysis / Bias In review, Quartz’s content mainly consist of large images, charts, and/or graphs. Quartz publishes stories with neutral headlines such as “To understand Trump’s speech, look at the US-Mexico border as it exists today”, as well as strong emotionally loaded language such as “A living glossary of all the words you need to understand the Trump presidency.” A quote from the article reads “Trump is seen as the editor-in-chief of the fake news movement because of his disregard of facts, such as when he claimed in a recent tweet, with no supporting evidence, that millions voted illegally in the US election.” When it comes to sourcing, they typically utilize credible sources such as c-span.org, New York Times, Huffington Post, and USA Today. Editorially, Quartz does not endorse any political party, however their sister publication, The Atlantic endorsed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential elections. Further, Quartz does not have a favorable view of President Trump with consistent negative articles pertaining to his administration: Another scandal-ridden member of Trump’s cabinet is resigning. Lastly, Quartz is generally pro-science with its reporting on GMO’s and Climate Change.


i guess the 16 marines from camp pendelton and one navy sailor may be mad about the work at the border because they just got caught trafficking humans and drugs so that aspect of the military may be pissed www.newsweek.com...

www.usatoday.com...

What happened? The 16 — all junior enlisted Marines whose names have not been released — were arrested Thursday during morning formation. Eight others were detained for questioning in unrelated drug cases. Why such a dramatic arrest? “It was a public display for the entire unit to see,” 1st Lt. Cameron Edinburgh, a 1st Marine Division spokesman, told the Union-Tribune. Why now? The move comes three weeks after two other Marines were picked up by a Border Control agent in the area and charged with transporting three Mexicans who had illegally crossed into the U.S.


and well hes their CIC so if he says its an emergency it is so they dont exactly get to question the orders of the president in terms of chain of command

www.cnbc.com... pelosi seems to think it was "an emergency" at least allowing a bill to pass the senate then the house

The House approves a Senate bill to send $4.6 billion in emergency border aid. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi agreed to take up the plan following pressure from centrists, though more liberal House members opposed the plan. It heads to President Donald Trump’s desk about furor about the treatment of migrant children at U.S. detention facilities.
so pelosi seems to have come around at least as far as funding goes


The House approved the $4.6 billion Senate legislation Thursday following pressure from centrist members to take up the plan. It got through the House by a 305-102 margin and will head to President Donald Trump’s desk. Among Democrats, 129 members voted for the legislation, while 95 opposed it. The Democratic Party’s liberal House members had insisted on including conditions for how the Trump administration treats children at detention centers as part of a separate bill it passed to fund the U.S. response to an influx of migrants at the southern border. Congress is rushing to send money to the border before it leaves for its July 4 recess. The congressional spat over funding comes as Democrats criticize Trump for reports of dismal conditions for children detained at a U.S. facility in Texas. Pelosi said earlier that the House would “reluctantly pass” the Senate-approved bill.
her rationalization on the matter

and scotus ok the funding which means he was within the bounds of the US Constitution

cronkitenews.azpbs.org...

Customs and Border Protection reported this month that 144,278 migrants were apprehended at the southern border in May, pushing the total for the first eight months of fiscal 2019 to 676,315, already more than the 521,090 for all of fiscal 2018. HHS, which detains children before releasing them to sponsors inside the U.S., said its monthly discharges of children have more than doubled, from 3,452 in October to 7,705 in April.
so 8 months in and allready more detentions then all of 2018,which if totaled together would be roughly 1,197,405 immigrants detained in both years with 4 more months to go

if you have a problem with illegal immigration being criminalized bring it up with presidents hoover and Coolidge and the senate and house at the time(1929) www.history.com...
