"the slippery slope"

Well, it looks like we're now officially in some uncharted waters. Our fearless leader has declared a "national emergency" on the southern boarder. I'm a proponent of MUCH more stringent boarder security, in certain areas walls, deportation of illegals and [email protected]$& sanctuary cities. I agree we have a "national emergency".
The concern that comes to mind is "what's next"? If this holds up in court it will sure set a significant president. Just imagine an AOC or the like in office and deciding poverty or guns are an emergency? Hmmmmm...

If AOC ever becomes POTUS, we have more troubles that you can imagine! AND, I can even see the possibility of the "loon" becoming our socialist POTUS!

I am pretty sure the declaration will not hold up in court, at least the funding part, but the President did what he said he was going to do. All the Democrats (including the media) are trying to is to frustrate the Presidents plans.

I noted that the difference between the requested funding and the appropriated funding, around $4.4 Billion, is less than the $4.7B that is spent MONTHLY on Food Stamps, or the $5+ Billion in FOREIGN AID...

I have heard on TV this is not setting president. They say Obama did this 4 times and Bush before him also did this. I do not know if this is true.

That's not a problem for me. I'd move to New Mexico.

Alexandria is as dumb as a sackful of doorknobs. If she calls me in N.M. and asked me to turn in my guns, I'll just tell her she has no authority in Mexico.

That should get her off my back for about 10 to 12 years...

As if democrats wouldn't burn down Washington anyway to get what they want?

Unlike Obama's 'pen and phone' constitutional run-arounds, Trump declaring an emergency is acting in accord with legislation passed by Congress.

The notion that Trump must castrate his presidential prerogatives in order to somehow guard against a democrat running amok in the WH sometime in the future is simply wrongheaded. That said, I expect swamp republicans will eagerly join in with Pelosi's claptrap to discourage Trump from finishing the wall. I look forward to Trump telling them they are "full of crap" as he did in El Paso, and move forward to finish the wall.

God Bless Donald Trump.

I don’t understand what all the fuss is about. Presidents have been doing this for decades. Why is it just now a big problem? Couldn’t be Trump Derangement Syndrome now could it.
Past administrations have declared national emergencies. No mass hysteria then.
National Emergencies declared since 1980.

CARTER -2
REAGAN- 6
GHW BUSH- 4
CLINTON -17
W Bush - 12
Obama -13
TRUMP - 1

My opinion is that Pelosi has lost control of the kids. Yikes, she used to be tough.

Even she knows that to have a "tax and spend" ideology you have to have a large segment of society to pay into your fantasies. If everyone is on welfare, you have nothing but 'out-go.'

There are guesses. It could be that Nancy wants to give Alexandria enough rope to hang her. Or, she simply knows politics well enough to know that Alexandria will not catch lightning in a bottle twice.

Personally, I would have publicly slapped her down and told her to quit embarrassing the Congress.

I believe AOC is representing exactly what the democraps have stood for, for some time now. The democrap leaders have told her not to talk about it. The problem is, she has diarrhea of the mouth. I think she is so stupid she can't pour yellow water out of a boot, even with the instructions on the heel!

Then again as my friend pointed out today that there is only one difference between a socialist and a communist. The socialist just won't admit they are communists.

I feel sorry for my grand children. They are the ones that will pay the price.

Trump, build the wall!
