FU, Chris Wallace - you effeminate creep.

Queen Nancy calls the national emergency an “illusion” and this anti-Trump POS agrees with her and says “four times the amount of immigrants were coming over the border in 2000!”.

Enough of this crap.

Trump should announce a deal with Mexico that THEY will build a wall on their side EVERYWHERE that some dumb-ass leftists block it on OURS, and THEN announce that for every week the RATS stand in his way, we’re going to find and deport another 100,000 illegal aliens.

It’s REALLY time to start fighting back, President Trump!

Unfortunately, he will sign it. Hope I’m wrong.

So this is an announcement, not a signing? Looking for any glimmer of hope here.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-02-15/ocasio-cortez-introduce-bill-blocking-trumps-emergency-declaration

One day after she took full responsibility for Amazon’s shocking decision to pull out of Long Island City due to a hostile political reception in New York, 29-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has once again grabbed the spotlight on Friday morning when she said she will introduce a bill with fellow Democratic Representative Joaquin Castro to stop President Donald Trump’s planned emergency declaration.

Ocasio-Cortez, who was speaking on Instagram, didn’t provide specifics but Castro previously said he’d offer a joint resolution.

In a statement on Thursday, Joaquin Castro said that “If President Trump declares a national emergency to fund his border wall, I’m prepared to introduce a resolution to terminate the President’s emergency declaration.”

His full statement is below:

Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chairman Joaquin Castro Moves to End President Trump’s National Emergency Declaration

Congressman Joaquin Castro (TX-20), Chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Vice Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and a member of the House Intelligence and Education and Labor Committee, released the following statement in response to President Trump’s threat to declare a national emergency to fund his border wall:

“If President Trump declares a national emergency to fund his border wall, I’m prepared to introduce a resolution to terminate the President’s emergency declaration under 50 U.S.C. 1622. (National Emergencies Act).

“Historically, Presidents have declared national emergencies for urgent matters of national security. President Trump would unconstitutionally usurp congressional authority by declaring an emergency based upon unfounded hype rather than any substantive emergency. Border crossings are lower than they have been in four decades. There are more law enforcement officers at the border—some stationed there simply to make good on politicians’ anti-immigrant rhetoric—than ever before. Further, such a baseless declaration by President Trump would set a dangerous precedent regarding the constitutional balance of powers between the executive and legislative branches.”

OTOH, President W Bush and Daddy Bush were both rather punctual. Pusillanimous, but punctual.

Trump = Greatest president since Lincoln & Washington!

He is unique in that he actually tries his best to keep ALL campaign promises. None of the career politicians keep their campaign promises.

Most.

I’ve seen no indication anyone has put the slightest effort in putting Hillary and her minions behind bars.
