Recommended Posts

So many who know so little continue to say so much. Let me walk one mile in his shoes, said no one in particular.

So it was only two years after FDR refused asylum to Jews fleeing extermination, I thought it was longer...

 

It took him less than a year to start relocating the Japenese to internment camps...

More details are being revealed in the Congressional funding bill:

  • Majority of both House and Senate passed the bill for Trump's signature aka VETO PROOF; he doesn't have to sign the bill and it becomes law anyways.
  • The bill specifically designates portions of the border in California, Arizona and New Mexico where any wall or barrier is BANNED and also through five named cities as per Rep. Peter Aguilar (D-California) who was a member of the Appropriations Committee.

With regard to Trump moving congressional approved funding from specific congressional line items to Trump's personal line-items, the Supreme Court in 1998 ruled that the President doesn't have the power to overrule legislative line item funding that in effect constitutes a veto.

I'm sure the dems slipped in loads of ridiculous restrictions on ice and cbp then loaded up with additional spending and the other gop idiots didn't read it. 

 

I guess if they pass it, someone will be able to read it.

But this is what President Trump has brought the country to. He is such a miserable selfish human being that people don't care about details one way or the other. They just oppose him. A person with a toxic personality produces results like that. Nobody pays any attention to what he says he believes, because they don't care and they don't trust him. He is Schwarzenegger 2.0.

In any case, there is no emergency, and everyone knows that.  Trump doesn’t care about the country, but if this goes through, there will be a national emergency on guns in the future.  It actually is more of a national emergency, considering immigration is comparatively low nowadays 

Everyone on the left knows it.

It has just been announced. The deflector in chief, has just shot himself in the foot, again. He declared a national emergency, over a fake, made up border (Trump wall of hubris) crisis. This will be the end for him. 65% of Americans polled, including many conservatives, said they did NOT want a national emergency invoked. Another tone deaf move, by the neophyte, who cannot negotiate a deal, to save his life, or his political career.

 

Want some real facts? Despite his protestations to the contrary, and his fake political rhetoric, Americans are the real problem here. 80.7% of the prison population in the US, are American citizens. Americans and naturalized Americans commit three times as many homicides annually, as illegal immigrants, and nine time as many murders as legal immigrants. Those are facts which can easily be verified, by anyone who is concerned with truth, rather than slogans and false, vitriolic campaign nonsense, meant to drum up racism, hatred and division. Rudy said truth is not truth. Well, the reality is, truth is truth, despite what this madman would have us believe.

Why not provide the corresponding population statistics?

Trump just declared a n Emergency to get the funds that he wants for the wall.  It would be nice to know exactly what will not be built by the military when they loose the 3.5 billion from their building fund?  Schools, Hospitals, Training facilities, etc.  Also during his speech he did not use a teleprompter and he was all over the place. He said that it was a National Emergency but during the questioning he said that he could build the wall over a longer period of time but he just wanted to do it fast.  So his ego is a National Emergency!  Also they keep using $4700/foot to estimate the cost of the wall.  It might have been the cost for his 30' high concrete disaster, but the bollard fencing that is what the CBP actually wants is less than $1000/foot.  How can we believe anything these idiots, including congress, says?

22% of inmates in federal prison were non US citizens. Such inmates were either deemed to be in the country illegally or facing upcoming deportation proceedings.
