    [QUOTE=KathyInAR;210826]trump is such a stupid slug...after declaring a national emergency, he stupidly says, “I didn’t need to do this, but i’d rather do it much faster.” In his usual idiotic frigging way, he contradicts his original claim of “an emergency” and actually speaks one of his rare truthful statements. BTW, where are all those folks that insisted that the Constitution must be followed exactly as written back in the 1700’s with no new interpretations or changes ... you know the Document that gives the power of the purse to Congress, the division of powers amongst the three equal branches of our government? trump is not only a disgrace of himself, he has disgraced this country. He has no more of a self awareness of his incompetency than a dog licking his balls in public,

    Boy there is some good material there!! Let me see.. DA and Putins balls, the dog has bigger balls than DA... I know, I know, all done.
    The real National Emergency resides in the White House. Lock him up!!!

    The EO that trump issued in late December denying Federal employees the 1.9% raise has been overridden by the new funding bill signed into law today retroactive to the first pay period of this year. Do something stupid, get slapped down again...happening time and again.

    I will, for what must surely be about the 50th time write that the experts have determined that there are better and more effective ways to "protect the border" than by a wall as described by trump. There is a gross need for additional personnel and drug dogs on the border, in ICE, and for the immigration courts; as well as for technology and the ability to interdict drugs entering the US by sea. There is also a need to maintain and add barriers in certain locations. Money was allocated during the Clinton, Bush-the-son, and Obama administrations and barriers erected. There is still moneys that were left over from the Obama administration FY 2017 budget as well as for FY 2018, that is largely unspent thus far--just recently work has started using those funds to erect some barriers--it doesn't happen instantaneously, (land has to be obtained, contracts let and so on and so forth).

    trump and some of his rabid followers would have people believe that because the Congress won't just hand over $$$ to him in whatever amounts he asks for and expects that they are for "open borders" and/or don't care about border security/protection. That is simply just more of trump's lies and some of his deaf, dumb and blind followers follow on...and how ridiculous is it when they say, that all the aforementioned administrations did it and now they won't do it for trump??? It was done, and it doesn't follow that it necessarily needs to be done again. Congress in Obama's last year and trump's first year appropriated about $1.7B of which only about 6% has been spent thus far for barriers even though much of it has been obligated (meaning put aside for future spending for this purpose. So where is the “emergency“?). Then in June of 2019, Congress appropriated another amount, I think it was $1.6B (not sure but I know it was more than the amount that ended up in the bill just passed and signed) but trump refused that. Never mind that at one time the entire $25B amount was offered along with a guaranteed pathway to citizenship for DACA folks exsisted that trump refused as soon as some rightwingnut (I think it was Ann Coulter) mentioned the word "amnesty"...so in his usual stupid ignorant self imposed sphere he refused it, he lost many $$$. Thus the great negotiator really isn't so great after all, is he?

    Even the GOP-house wasn't interested in giving trump what he was asking for. It is not the opinion of most of the experts and the majority of the American people that a wall/fencing/barriers as requested by trump is the best way to proceed with border protection. He has lied relentlessly about the situations at the Southern border.

    And this dragging out the poor grieving parents of kids murdered by illegals is disgusting when there are many many many and more many grieving parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts & uncles & cousins of kids killed by other Americans who are largely ignored by trump. They, the “angel mothers” are just pawns that he is using to move around his imaginary chess board while spreading his lies.

    And no, the above meme* does not apply. The elements of the laws concerning treason are very specific and this does not meet it.

    This Trump performance is why people talk about the 25th Amendment
    By Dana Milbank
    February 15 at 7:43 PM

    It was a fine day for a national emergency.

    There was no sign of alarm as administration officials and journalists assembled Friday in the Rose Garden under a perfect blue sky amid unseasonable warmth. Nor was there any sense of crisis conveyed by President Trump, scheduled to fly to his Mar-a-Lago resort later Friday. The much-anticipated emergency declaration was to have been at 10 a.m. At 10:18, an official said Trump would talk in two minutes. At 10:39, Trump emerged.

    His topic demanded utmost solemnity: The situation on the border is so dire, such a crisis, that he must invoke emergency powers to circumvent Congress, testing the boundary between constitutional democracy and autocracy. But with the nation watching, Trump instead delivered a bizarre, 47-minute variant of his campaign speech.



    He boasted about the economy, military spending and the stock markets (“we have all the records”), and he applauded the Chinese president’s pledge to execute people who deal fentanyl (“one of the things I’m most excited about in our trade deal”). He said Japan’s prime minister had nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize. He declared Ann Coulter “off the reservation” but praised his favorite Fox News hosts and celebrated Rush Limbaugh’s endurance (“try speaking for three hours without taking calls”).

    Further, Trump reported on his “great relationship” with the dictator of North Korea (which, Trump reported, is found “right smack in the middle” of South Korea, China and Russia), and he declared the “eradication of the caliphate” in Syria (his top general in the region begs to differ). He introduced his new attorney general, disparaged the Democrats’ “con game,” criticized retired House speaker Paul Ryan, invoked campaign promises, recited the “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan and pronounced his reelection prospects excellent. He pinged from regulations to Britain to MS-13 to “monstrous caravans” to an apocryphal story about women gagged with duct tape.

    Oh, and he also mentioned his emergency declaration — specifically, that it isn’t necessary. “I didn’t need to do this,” he said in response to a question from NBC’s Peter Alexander. It’s just that the emergency declaration lets him build a border wall “faster.” He acknowledged that “I don’t know what to do with all the money” Congress gave him for border security, and he said that even if he only gets an amount closer to the $1.35 billion Congress authorized for barriers, “it’s going to build a lot of wall.”


    When President Barack Obama attempted a less aggressive use of executive power in 2014, Republicans denounced him as a “tyrant” and “dictator,” McConnell called him an “imperial president,” and Trump himself said Obama “could be impeached” for it. Many lawmakers warned Trump not to “usurp the separation of powers” as Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.) put it.

    Trump seemed not to have heard such warnings as he ricocheted from topic to topic in the Rose Garden. He carried a speech to the lectern but mostly ignored it as he spun fantasies.

    Evidence that most of the illegal drugs pass through legal border crossings? “It’s all a lie.”

    CNN’s Jim Acosta pointed out that border crossings are near record lows and illegal immigrants are not disproportionately criminal.

    “You’re fake news,” Trump replied.

    Playboy’s Brian Karem asked Trump to “clarify where you get your numbers.”

    “Sit down,” Trump told him, declaring that “I use many stats.” Minutes later, he pumped a fist in the air and departed.

    “What about the 25th Amendment?” Acosta called after him.

    Trump’s performance had already provided a compelling answer.
