    A National Emergency Declaration

    When do you think President Trump will declare a national emergency and build the wall?

    It looks as if a declaration will make up to 23 billion dollars available to build the wall.

    Will it happen in January? February? Or March?

    Which idiot Republicans will fold? Collins? Murkowski? Romney?
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Congress can override a presidential declaration of a national emergency by a majority vote in both chambers of congress.

    People will also challenge it in court. Although because their is a legislative fix, courts my toss that hot-potato.

    While true it does not answer my reasonable questions.

    I think President Trump will declare a national emergency before the end of January. I expect the usual suspects, Collins and Murkowski, to fold. I expect Romney to follow the girls.

    With the Lame Stream highlighting their woeful government employees, I figure Trump will declare the Emergency end of January beginning of Feb.


    The Demos activists will immediately take it into court. Get a Judge to issue a temp restraining order. The Demos in the House will vote against it. Same in the Senate.


    Yep Collins and Murkowski will side with the Demos and then Romney will cave.

    I think he’ll hope to end the shutdown and get the national emergency declaration in place before the SOTU address. Assuming no deal is reached (and it looks unlikely).

    Mr President, what's the nature of the emergency?

    The Democrats won't give me what I want.



    Good luck with that.

    First, thanks.

    Second, Progressivism is the underlying problem. Progressives simply do not like the United States and seek to harm it and the nation's citizens. Keeping the border open and illegals flowing in is the emergency.

    Yes.. if only the GOP would say if the Pres Declares this we will vote to support it. The Gov shutdown would end and the wall would be built. I am not so sure what is hard about that to understand.
