My biggest issue is that most of the Dems have not visited the Boarder and have
voted against the wall. They need to stop and look at the issues.
Donald Trump: Working hard to ensure Democratic control of both Congress AND the
White House from 2020 to 2028.I am grumpy because I was told to stop
spoiling the grandkids.
this is why Trump is president, and Chris Stewart is not..
"I didn't need to do this..."Does this man step on his
own toes every single time he opens his mouth or what? Then in true
emergency mode, he bravely takes himself to Mar a Lago for some golf and a trip
to the omelet bar. How anyone can believe this man without trying
reeeaaaallly hard to not laugh at themselves in the mirror is beyond me.
Stewart and Romney missing ONE major aspect ... 1. Congress controls the purse
strings to government. I agree with Trumps use of executive action to enforce he
border. He will authorize the diversion of military funds to do so. Yes
it's sleight of hand, but necessary.2. Obama issued 276 executive
orders during his time in office. Trump has used executive action to NEGATE
about 50% of Obamas executive actions, such as minimum wage hikes, activities at
Guantanamo etc. If we count new and abusive executive actions by Trump = 0!3. For all LDS out there, the Nephites had borders for good reason, the enemy
without and enemies within created cultural and value chaos among their society.
The enemies WITHIN our society are enough of a problem, why invite it to our
country. Charity organisations (churches too) do so much to help the poor and
needy in all nations, let us do the work unhindered and let government do what
it is supposed to do...protect its citizens.
I find it interesting that all of the focus of the supposed "national
emergency" due to illegal immigration is directed solely at the southern
U.S. border. As I recall, the terrorists responsible for the 911 tragedy came
into the U.S. by first going to Canada, and then entering the U.S. through
Canada, not through Mexico.And, it would reasonably appear that any
actual terrorist with half a brain would still do the same thing--first enter
Canada, and then enter the U.S. through the northern border, which does not
receive the same degree of scrutiny as the southern border.Illegal
immigrants coming in through the southern border are most likely to be poor
people struggling financially, who are coming to the U.S. for hope of a better
life, just as immigrants have done for hundreds of years.Whereas
most recent immigrants are Hispanic, there is currently a lot of prejudice
against Hispanic immigrants. Historically, similar prejudice occurred
concerning Jewish, Irish, Chinese and Italian immigrants.It is much
more difficult today to legally immigrate to the U.S. Thus, the increase in
illegal immigration. One simple, obvious solution would be to make legal

Democrats might use the Emergency Powers Act to respond to "gun
violence" or "climate change." However, if you look at the Emergency
Powers Act, the Act only relates to any "unusual or extraordinary threat
THAT HAS ITS SOURCE . . . OUTSIDE THE US." Illegal immigration has its
source outside of the US. Leftists claim "gun violence" (a misnomer btw)
has its origins in the US. Furthermore, there is no indication that the
President has any authority to infringe on a fundamental right such as the right
to bear arms.---The "National Emergencies Act"(1976)
makes no mention of the specifics of how a national emergency is defined. The
Law requires the President to inform Congress of his declaration, places
requirements that the declaration have a list of applicable laws regarding the
national emergency, and limits certain elements of 'power', including
duration of a 'national' emergency.Currently there are 31
National Emergencies, none of which, except for the cooked up
'emergency' Trump is attempting to foist upon the nation, have any
significant effect on allocation of budgets for programs that Congress has not

overreaction results from such an ill-advised article? It's merely a
natural extension of the Russian Collusion hoax, the unhinged charges over the
past two years that Trump is a Nazi, Fascist, Putin puppet, and so on. It is a deplorable misuse of a free press to induce this kind of extremist
nonsense, not to mention dangerous. After two years of being exposed as
purveyors of fake news, you'd think the press would learn. But apparently
If anyone thinks we don't have a national emergency, please ask the parents

Rep Stewart worries that the Democrats might use the Emergency Powers Act to
respond to "gun violence" or "climate change." However, if you
look at the Emergency Powers Act, the Act only relates to any "unusual or
extraordinary threat THAT HAS ITS SOURCE . . . OUTSIDE THE US." Illegal
immigration has its source outside of the US. Leftists claim "gun
violence" (a misnomer btw) has its origins in the US. Furthermore, there is
no indication that the President has any authority to infringe on a fundamental
right such as the right to bear arms. Illegals do not have a fundamental right
to ignore our immigration laws and forcefully storm our borders. If
"climate change" were the issue, the Emergency Powers Act only gives the
President authority to use his powers to punish sources of climate change
outside of the US. Perhaps a President would do well to place embargoes on
goods from the greatest foreign polluters. Rep Stewart should have his staff
lawyers read the Emergency Powers Act before worrying about executive orders
that could never occur under any circumstances.
The “Wall” and other boarder security measures should have been in
place years ago. We are talking about our children and grandchildren’s
futures here. We do not need our country filled with people who have been just
walking across from all kinds of countries who have no intentions of becoming
legal citizens. There is a right way to enter the United States and the there
the illegal way, any detourance is a step in right direction. They need to take
the money from Guzman and fix the problem he had a huge part in causing.
Anyone who believes this is just a "contrived" emergency has not really
studied the history of the southern border. Several prior presidents including
Obama considered it a "grave danger" to our citizens and "pressing
problem". And much has been done to alleviate the issues but putting up
borders and fences, barriers and, yes, even walls. But it is not complete.I have agreed with Congressman Stewart in most everything else but when
he says the following, I think he is naive. ""It deeply worries me that
a future Democratic president may consider gun violence or climate change a
'national emergency' and what actions they may then take." Whether Trump declares an emergency or not will affect little what a
future Democrat president will do. Too often compromises are made
thinking that cooperation and returning the favor will take place. This is
entirely not true with the recent ingenuine intent of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck
Schumer. They said stop the government shutdown and then we will negotiate.
Yet there was no good faith intent on their part to seriously consider funding a
wall or barrier or any such thing. That was more than obvious.Build
Paul8777 - Brigham City, UT---If Trump's action stands,
there's ample work for the next Democratic President to do.---Don't worry, the next National Emergency will declare the
Democratic Party to be illegal, and so, there will only be Republicans in
government.Trump hasn't burnt down the Capital building, but
this created 'emergency' is inching towards a power grab.For all the complaints about Obama, Trump has engaged in more golf and power
grabbing, no euphemism there, than seen in recent times from a President.One can only hope that the Republicans in the Senate will see this for
what it is, naked abuse of power, and step back from the abyss.FDR
didn't get his party's support for his attempt to 'stack'
the Supreme Court in 1937, Republicans should rein in Trump in his attempt to
end run the power the Constitution delegates to Congress in matters of budget.
"For example, how about unwinding all judicial appointments resulting from
the infiltration of the Executive Branch and Senate by agents of a hostile
power, for the years 2017-2020?"It is astonishing that there are
people in the USA who actually think this way. No evidence needed, only
fabricated charges followed by endless repetition of innuendo. Propaganda is
working as intended.It's funny that the DesNews will publish an
article quoting Rep. Stewart's words when they express opposition to
President Trump, but not when they express opposition (in the strongest possible
terms) to Andrew McCabe. As I said, propaganda is working as intended. And
it's really not funny, not at all.
Waves of tens of thousands of people are trying to storm out borders all at once
from countries all around the world. They have stormed the border guards
throwing rocks and attacking them physically. Along the way through Mexico,
they have apprehended murderers, drug dealers, gang members/violent criminals
and even islamic terrorists infiltrating these big groups before they get to the
border. Who knows how many they don't catch? The border crossings are
down because Trump sent the military and made a deal with Mexico to keep them on
the other side. Obama let them right through and they never kept their amnesty
application court dates, so we now have millions of illegals in our country
thanks to the Democrats and failed border policies. Drug trafficking, child
prostitution/slavery and MS13 gang members crossing are still at epidemic
levels. Additionally, lets increase legal immigration and let in the best and
brightest come that earn their way here legally and want to be US citizens, not
the worst of these 2nd and 3rd world countries with no education or job skills,
no desire to learn English or integrate and further push our social safety net
programs past the brink.
@Herbert Gravy - "@Daedalus. Sorry. There is no "contrived"
emergency. Just a real emergency that threatens our sovereignty...."Trump apparently disagrees: "I could do the wall over a longer
period of time. I didn't need to do this. But I'd rather do it much
faster.”Trump said this today in the =very same= speech when
he announced his personal-national emergency. Incredible.By saying those words, Trump doomed the chances that a court will uphold his
declaration of a national emergency because he makes it clear Trump himself
believes this "emergency" is discretionary on his part.I
realize Trump followers sincerely believe this is a national crisis that
requires immediate action. But Trump himself is doing and saying things that
are diametrically opposed to addressing border security with more barriers.
With such an unforced error, it seems certain that his declaration will be
enjoined and NOTHING will happen for at least a year or two. Nothing.Trump. His words. Today. Not Pelosi. Not Schumer.
Not Hillary, Obama, AOC, or AOL.Trump.Trump is the guy
Trump supporters need to be opposing.Good luck with that.
Senator Lee and Rep. Curtis voted against the bill sent to Trump. That means
they voted for another government shutdown. The federal government workers in
Utah salute you for your support .
The immigration crisis started with our foreign policies and activities in other
countries. It was then escalated for the past 30 years by failed Congresses who
did not do their job and pass meaningful immigration legislation as they went
along. If they had we would not have the crisis we have today. Kicking the can
down the street and not doing the hard parts of your job is never the answer.
They apparently didn't learn that lesson along the way. Trump has
intentionally created a nonstop crisis regarding the border and wall to get
something done about our failing immigration system. His method is poor but he
does have the nation's attention now about it. So, it is time for this
Congress to pass well crafted, meaningful, comprehensive, and reasonable
immigration reform. Not just pork barrel projects representatives want. They
have the opportunity to do immigration reform as well as making sure our foreign
policies regarding our involvement and engagement with other countries is sound,
reasonable, and appropriate. We shouldn't be isolationists or world
The more important question and decision facing Rep. Chris Stewart is whether he
will vote where his words are and support a Congressional motion to overturn
President Trump's declaration. It's easy to talk, but to actually put
such talk into legal terms with a force of law by voting against Trump's
declaration is much more substantial and is the real deal, not symbolic phrases
that appease the heart, but not the reality. This isn't an easy decision
for Rep. Stewart. President Trump is making life very difficult for many
Bishop:"He needn't even be in this position if congress would have done
its job and funded both the government and border security. This is a failure of
Congress to act." Critics of wall,refer to an article in DN by CEO of
The Undeground Railroad Tim Ballard.As Bishop,"I am frustrated with Democrat
leadership, who have supported border security in the past, but now are
insisting upon an inadequate compromise out of pure political spite."Tim
Ballard:"We ask them to honestly consider whether or not they have ever run
rescue operations along the border and truly understand how the complexities of
border operations function in the real world. We ask them to consider whether or
not they have ever utilized the wall and accompanying ports of entry to rescue
children. We ask them to consider why every agency and organization who has
carried out child rescue operations at the border — the experts —
support the building and construction of a wall or barrier. Mexican authorities
have uncovered at least 19 different land-based smuggling routes where victims
are taken and trafficked for sex in the United States. Downplaying the crisis
with disinformation puts our children in grave danger."
The President is considering this action because he feels that he was out played
by the Democrats. He negotiated a deal that is worse than the pre-shutdown
offer. Of course, he was out played.Mr. President, please set
precedent by declaring a national emergency. Action inspired by your vanity
will establish great power for future Democrat presidents. Representative Chris
Stewart is 100% correct. Thank you, Donald Trump, for showing the path around
the obstructionist Mitch McConnell.
The boy-president cried wolf.
Last year, nearly 40,000 people in the United States died from gun violence.
Over 14,000 of those were homicides. 2/3 were suicides. That's a national
emergency.For more than 400,000 years, the amount of carbon dioxide
in the atmosphere was below 300 parts per million. Since 1950, it surpassed
that amount, and now stands at 400 ppm. As a result, the climate and the oceans
are warming at a rate that will result in catastrophic climate disruption within
10-20 years. That's a national and global emergency.Meanwhile,
illegal border crossings have fallen from nearly 1.6 million in 2000 to about
400,000 in 2018. The number of undocumented immigrants in the United States
fell from 12.2 million in 2007 to 10.7 million in 2016. Meanwhile U.S. citizens
commit crimes at a rate of about 1800 per 100,000 population. Undocumented
immigrants commit crimes at a rate of about 700 per 100,000 population. Murders
by U.S. citizens are about 4 per 100,000 population. Murders by undocumented
immigrants are at about 3 per 100,000 population. There is no national
emergency, nor crisis on the border.If Trump's action stands,
there's ample work for the next Democratic President to do.
Mr. Curtis, you and your club have not done a good job for many years now. You
hurt America every day. You are all an embarrassment to the foundation of
America. Both parties have damaged our country almost beyond repair. Don’t
blame other people, you have the power and make all the horrible rules that the
rest of us have to live by. Save the finger pointing for you and all of your
friends there in Washington.
What Rep Stewart fails to admit is that Dems will do whatever they will want
when they have power. We saw it in Obamacare and we will see it in socializing
the country.Its a "Take what you can world" and Trump better do
the wall now. What I can't understand is why the Repubs didn't get the
wall done when they had power
@DaedalusSorry. There is no "contrived" emergency. Just a
real emergency that threatens our sovereignty. And our common sense.
We continually hear from Trumpies, that illegal immigration has been a problem
for decades and no one has done anything about it ..finally Trump is doing
something.Wrong, wrong, wrong. There have been many immigration
laws and actions resulting in a decline in both illegals in the country and
illegals detained and sent home (this figure has dropped by two thirds since
2004). Of course the unspoken is the belief that a wall will
"stop", "end" illegal migration. That assumption is absurd on
it's face, if for no other reason than a vast majority of illegals got here
legally in the first place. We're right to worried about drugs
and human trafficking but it's absurd to think a wall would be a more
effective deterrent than intelligence, border agents, and sophisticated
technology, all of which could be put in place nearly immediately.
Mistake? It's malfeasance at best, treason at worst.
Congress controls the purse strings and writes the laws. If the people want to
change anything, it starts with Congress.
There is no crisis on the Southern border. Illegal crossings are at a 50 year
low. And now Trump wants to spit in the face of the Constitution for a cheap
political gimmick. One commentator on a show this morning referred to the
Banana Republicans, an apt description of those in the GOP who give Trump's
ill-informed and ill-conceived wall any credibility and then support and
encourage a national emergency. Instead of going through the Constitutional
process, including appropriations, Trump will play a dangerous game. Like the
McConnell erosion of the Constitutional process with the Garland nomination,
Republicans are proving that they prefer raw power to get what they want, and it
is more important that the Constitution, the rule of law, and the our revered
institutions. The threat to the nation is coming from the right. Hopefully
Stewart and other Utah Republicans will do what's right and holler loudly
about it rather than rubber-stamp a wannabe tyrant.
Great move Trump. In two years we will be able to divert money from the
Pentagon and put it towards a real National Emergency like Global Warming.
Relax folks---all of this is going to be paid for by Mexico in a way that
can't really be described but that Trump loyalists will be convinced by
nonetheless. Not a cent is going to come out of American taxpayers pockets. My
dearest hope is that when this disaster of a Presidency is over, Dems will use
the same strategy to combat gun violence and climate change regulations (which
actually are emergencies).
A bruised ego does not constitute a national emergency. Trump is out of control.
Border officials have gone on record to say there is no more crime
there than any other city their size. They flat out said there IS no emergency.
U. S. Congress an international embarrassment
Tell me if you've heard this before:Humpty Trumpty sat on a
wall; Humpty Trumpty had a great fall; all the king's horses and all the
king's men couldn't put Humpty together again.Who thought
that an uncompromising businessman would make a good president? Politics is all
about compromise. A president who can't compromise is usually an
ineffective president.I don't support either of the two main
political parties (or any weird outlier political parties). I have noticed that
In our U.S. political system a natural type of check and balance has been
created by the two major political parties. When one political party is in
power in the Presidency, and when the other party is in power in Congress,
neither party has full power and both parties are forced to compromise to get
anything accomplished--which usually leads to fair laws, which don't tend
to favor the interests of either party. However, when one political party gains
full power in both the Presidency & in Congress, that's when we get
extremist laws, which oftentimes favor the interests of one party over the
other. Therefore, I am always hopeful that one political party will not gain
full power, even for a short time.
And Representative Stewart came to this conclusion after spending hours talking
to his constituents?....not even close. We voted Trump in Representative....now
leave him alone to complete his main campaign platform.
Thank you Rep. Stewart for calling out the President, as you should, when he
oversteps his himself.
If Trump can do this, what's to stop him from declaring other
"emergencies" designed mainly to keep himself in power. How far can a
president take this before it borders on dictatorship?And if this
precedent is set, what's to stop any future president from using this route
to implement personal or political agendas that, like this one, do not have the
support of a majority of Americans?Checks and balances are a good
thing, even when they slow something that you think needs to happen right away.
Whether you think we should build a wall or not, any supporter of democracy
should be opposed to this route to build one.
The sad part is that it was just over 30 years ago that Congress gave up some of
their power to check the President when they passed the National Emergency
Powers Act in 1977.It is funny how we are just now seeing the fruits
of the bad legislation from the past 50 years finally catching up to us.
Please tell me why it is a "mistake" to protect the sovereignty of this
country and insist on LEGAL immigration.Thanks.
All those who voted for this bil needs a background check on there off shore
accounts and bitcoin ownership!!! Nobody is that stupid except for mittens.
"Remember 2005? 400,000 undocumented marching in Chicago. And LA."No, I don't remember nearly 1/2 million people marching in Chicago

effort . . . . Seek the truth -- it's the only way we can try

I fully support President Trump on building the wall.Get behind the
POTUS, Chris Stewart! I am so tired of some of the Republicans not supporting
this man! This has emerged into a national emergency when tens of thousands of
people from around the world think they can simply walk across our borders as
immigrants and expect a free pass into our country. Sex trafficking, illegal
drugs, and criminals coming across are reason enough to protect our country!
Take off the blinders.Those opposed to this merely want votes from
these people who would vote for Dems to turn our country into a dictatorship!
Food stamps, SS benefits, free-for-all health care, why would they not?Common sense! Build the wall.
We are in La La land. There is no incursion (illegal immigration is the lowest
in decades), there is literally no emergency, and no, Donald, the wall is not
being built, and is not even needed. How long are Americans going to put up with
this nonsense?Maybe Romney is waiting for the ink to dry on the fake
emergency, but the comment he made was weak, at best. I thought he was going to
be a truth-teller.
More politicians stonewalling a President's campaign promise.The republicans had control of congress and were not able to get it done. Build that wall, whatever it takes!
""He needn't even be in this position if congress would have done
its job and funded both the government and border security. This is a failure of
Congress to act," Bishop said.Two years. Republicans held all
the keys and power to fix this problem. They sat on it. Did nothing. The only
people that should be blamed for Trump being in this position are people like
Bishop when they look in the mirror. It's just that simple.If
this is truly an emergency, why wasn't it prioritized earlier. How did it
rise to the level of "emergency" only in the last few months? Nothing
on the ground has changed. It's time those who were in the last congress
admit they blew it, let both Trump and the American people down, and now sit
down at the table and do their jobs.Bishop could have authored a
bill..... could have sent it to committee. He choose not to. Had other
priorities. Now the job is harder, but still get it done. Quit hiding from
responsibility and blaming others for your own inaction.
Look how long some of those senators have been in office and every election
cycle preached about boarder security and have done nothing. They complain about
the cost! Hillary Clinton seems to have misplaced 6 Billion dollars and the
military a couple of Trillion and it seems nobody in interested in looking for
it. They never even talk about it! This was OUR money. We are way past
time for term limits on these people and seem to be lacking in the
Border security is an essential element to any country. Build it and love it...
It is time to build the wall. I lived close to the Boarder in San Diego years
ago. I would hate to be driving at night or having my husband drive as there was
always an Illegal crossing the freeway when it was dark. Most of the time they
were dressed in dark clothing so that they would not be noticed. Do you know how
many young people or even older people along with little children were hit by
cars trying to come into our Country. Something has to be done. Not only to keep
us safer but also to keep those who are coming in and not being caught safe.
This is the United States of America something needs to be done. When I lived
out of the Country for a couple of years I had to have my I. D. with me all of
the time. I had to go through the proper channels to get in and out of that
Country. So why do those who are against this wall do not want that. I am
guessing so that they can get cheaper help, or more votes when it is time for
the election. President Trump ran on Building the Wall and making our Country
great again. This is part of him keeping his promises to all of us who voted for
Who cares anymore! This is all a joke. Nobody owns up to their own words or
actions, NOBODY! Not Democrats, not Republicans. Every single one of them is
just a bunch of whiny cry babies, from the bottom all the way to the top. Kids
could handle this kind of thing better in grade school playground. Politicians
voting for bills they completely disagree with because their bill they want
passed is set as an ear mark within the bill. Every single politician is out
for themselves. Democrats know that a border wall, albeit a
expensive one is a good thing. They know this. Any half decent American knows
it is, because they do also want what is best for America. And ever Republican
knows that Trump is not the best president and puts his ego first in everything,
but even he wants what’s best for America. Yet everyone sticks to the
party line. So be it, I am former military who has reached the point
of exhaustion of this garbage. Liberal Democrats and far right Republicans can
keep their pride and let America slowly be lead down the path of distruction,
because nobody has common sense anymore. Lets talk about when the next
revolution will start. I’m sure it’s coming.
for the first two years of the trump administration there was no border
emergency, no threats about lack of wall funding, and no threats to use
executive power in an unprecedented manner.he loses the house of
representatives to the democrats and suddenly there is a border emergency which
needs immediate wall funding, or will he will declare a national emergency. has
there ever been someone more partisan?think we know who actually
brought the swamp to washington~~the swamp creature himself.
In November 2014, while blasting Obama for using executive action regarding
immigration and Mexico, trump said, " "Now he has to use executive
action and this is a very, very dangerous thing that should be overwritten
easily by the Supreme Court."Trump was also asked if the Obama
had committed any impeachable offenses. He said Obama could certainly be
impeached for his executive action on immigration."Well, he
certainly did something that was unconstitutional," Trump said. "Now, it
depends on Justice (John) Roberts. If he wants to just curry favor in the
Beltway like he did with Obamacare, because that's the only reason he did
it. Because he knows he was wrong, but it certainly depends on what happens. I
mean, I think certainly he could be impeached and certainly they could shut down
the government."And in a Tweet in November 2014, trump wrote :
"Repubs must not allow Pres Obama to subvert the Constitution of the US for
his own benefit & because he is unable to negotiate w/ Congress."But now ? Make America Sane Again and impeach trump
Yuge Opportunity Here - Mapleton, UTFeb. 14, 2019 8:15 p.m.He'd
better do something more than 50 or 60 miles.Remember 2005? 400,000
undocumented marching in Chicago. And LA.Have you considered who
picks your fruit and vegetables? Have you thought about who works the Dairy
farms? Is it the layabout folks who incessantly poach the system. Who works
those jobs? WHO Works those jobs?
A dangerous precedent for either party. 9/11 was a national emergency. The
border situation is a crisis -not an emergency. Trump received
$1.375 billion for 55 miles of physical barriers in Texas's Rio Grande
Valley. He should make the most of this. He can also access around 6-8 billion
from other sources to work on barriers without declaring a national emergency.
One place he can get it is tax refunds Americans have never claimed. He can take
some from military construction funds and several other places to get even more
than he was asking for with the 5.8 billion. Even if he declared a
national emergency our gov't is not equipped or able to build a massive
concrete wall all at once spending billions of dollars. He can continue to work
on barriers where they are needed along while other beefed-up border security
efforts to help stop the massive amount of drugs & undocumented people
coming across our borders. There is so much that can be done with both parties
working together and compromising. The U.S. is not Russia or China.
Trump is not a dictator or a king. He needs checks & balances. Our
forefathers created 3 branches of gov't to prevent serious abuses of power.
He'd better do something more than 50 or 60 miles.Remember
2005? 400,000 undocumented marching in Chicago. And LA.Trump was
doing reality TV then...and Congress (and GWB) were fiddling while Rome burned.
It's been the same, sad story for decades now. Democrats and Republicans in
the White House and controlling Congress.Trump understood our
frustration and got elected.Congress is still fiddling. Trump is
DOING something.As always, the 9th Circuit will do an injunction and
tie things up for a year or two. The same suspects will say the same things -
time for "comprehensive immigration reform." (Read: Amnesty.)Who wants amnesty? Activists, progressives, elites, globalists, corporations,
churches, the Chamber, unions...everybody but the people who believe we have
been made chumps by trespassers.Washington is not capable of fixing
this. They will stop Trump. And Trump will get a second term just to spite the
"Lee said it's too early to comment until the White House announces
specific plans and identifies the legal justification for its actions."There's no emergency. It's not too early to comment on this,
and never has been.
The "emergency" on the border is not a mistake. It's a fabricated,
fear mongering distraction tool from Trump.
The right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental right that cannot be infringed
by executive order. Illegal immigration is not a fundamental right. I'm
appalled that there are Congress men and women who can't understand the
distinction. Incidentally, arming citizens between the ages of 18 and 45 with
semi-automatic rifles ("assault rifles") is a vital part of our national
defense and written into the United States Code as the Civilian Marksmanship
Program. During WWII Japan opted not to attack the US Mainland because of the
belief that there is a man with a rifle behind every blade of grass. How many
hundreds of thousands or perhaps millions of lives on both side of the conflict
were spared because of that deterrent?
Well, Mr. Stewart, he's from your party. Your party leadership gave him a
blanket guarantee of support in the House for two years in the House, and
continues to support him in the Senate.If you want to lead--or
follow--a movement toward honest Republicans standing up to Trump--staking out a
claim for honest, principled conservatism that isn't in thrall to the
emotionally stunted man-child in the White House, be my guest. Our country
Build the wall. MAGA TRUMP
Stewart is right. Even if it's for the wrong reasons.
After years of politicians promises, it has become an emergency.
Way to go Trump.Now when the Democrats take office they will push
whatever they want and just call it a national emergency.Donald
Trump is the best thing for Democrats and the worst for Republicans ever.Save us please, Mitt.
Article: "On Trump's intention to declare a national emergency, Lee
said it's too early to comment until the White House announces specific
plans and identifies the legal justification for its actions."No.No, it is not too early to comment on Trump's stated plan
to declare a national emergency because he proved incapable of properly
negotiating and humiliated himself and his followers as a result.No
time is required to say what Rep. Stewart said, which is basic common sense:
setting a precedent for this slow-motion, ego-fondlng, contrived
"emergency" only gives this powerful tool to the Democrats to abuse in
whatever creative ways they can think of.For example, how about
unwinding all judicial appointments resulting from the infiltration of the
Executive Branch and Senate by agents of a hostile power, for the years
Stewart is wrong again...WHAT was Wrong, was voting for the omnibus
twice, Stewart?Get on the bus......or get left behind! It's
time to build the wall!
