Reports: McConnell Backed Emergency
Declaration to Prevent Trump Veto
of Flawed Border Security Bill

Breitbart Economy, by Neil Munro

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/15/2019 11:11:31 AM

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The bill deserves to be vetoed. Sounds like McConnell knows it too.

Perhaps the national emergency can be used to keep the government open as well as build the wall until the idiots in Congress get their act together.

I´m sure many here will cheer the President on as he declares an Emergency. We will all regret it. The Constitution is explicit: the Congress must appropriate ALL monies spent. DJT´s border wall emergency will easily morph into a climate change emergency, a gun violence emergency, a health care emergency and/or any number of other liberal hobby horses, when a Dem returns to the White House. This used to be a Republic. Now it is rule by executive fiat.

The Emergency Declaration is a really bad precedent to set. We will regret it, but I could tell the President was itching for a chance to do it. McConnell is ready to move on with the Senate´s work instead of dealing with yet another shutdown and I understand that, too.

Pardon second post...

Google ´list of national emergencies´. 58 have been declared since 1976, and 31 are still in effect. Some have been declared for things that have had little to do with our national safety. The precedent is there.

It remains to be seen if corrupt politics will derail the national emergency over the border wall.

McConnell is undermining Trump by this devious plan for he knows the Spending Bill grants immediate amnesty to millions of current and future “unaccompanied illegal minors” and their sponsors (also illegals) while the emergency order and Wall will be tied up in federal courts for 18 to 24 months. With no guarantee that the Supreme Court will uphold Trump’s use of funds earmarked by Congress for other programs. It’s a lose lose for Trump and a win for a soon to retire McConnell.

Trump’s signature on the Bill will be a blow, possibly fatal, to his re-election. Time for Trump to be a leader and not a New York politician.

If this is true, President Trump is under no obligation to sign that bill because McConnell backed emergency declaration. Separate issues, not joined in any way at all.

How is it a “bad precedent” for the President to declare a national emergency about what is happening - has been happening - at our southern border? Obie declared 12 national emergencies, one of which involved bird flu which had taken fewer than 1000 lives. He also did it to build something in Iraq.

The bad precedent is the foot-planting by the Dems and the Republican Uniparty types that denied him the ability to do what all the immigration experts recommend: build the wall!

We are sending billions to foreign countries. At least one huge allotment in this bill is for one country to build a wall! And $1 billion to the Smithsonian? That sounds like a very bad precedent.

There is nothing frivolous about national sovereignty and border security ...

McConnell should be forced to apologize for this monstrosity. There is no way a bill with this many restrictions should ever have been passed in a SENATE HELD BY REPUBLICANS! They act like the dems run everything.

As far as precedent goes, Harry Reid had no trouble eliminating the filibuster when he had the opportunity. There was no precedent for that. Trust me, if a situation arises where the dems have the presidency (God forbid!), that president will have no qualms about an Emergency Declaration if it suits his/her needs at the time - precedent is irrelevant.

I don´t understand all the shock & awe being expressed on this thread. We knew days ago that this was how it was going to go down.

A veto would have brought on another politically damaging (to Trump) "shutdown" and gained us nothing. Some speculated about putting together another CR to run until September, but was that a realistic alternative given Democrat control of the House? Not likely.

Seems to me PDT made the right decisions under the circumstances. We need to stay the course and not fly off the handle for the sake of things that were just not in the cards. It´s gonna be a wild ride.

#11/12/14, I think the key difference is that none of the prior "national emergency" declarations involved/required funding which is congressional ´territory´. Unfortunately, I´m afraid this is the legal hingepoint which will weaken/defeat Trump´s declaration.
Ultimately, I think he should have vetoed, but he´s too far down the other road at this point...

The "flawed" boder security bill was passed by a veto-proof margin.
The gov´t was NOT going to shut down because, even had our president not signed it, the Congress could have over-ridden his veto.
The Senate swiftly passed the legislation on an 83-to-16 vote, and the House followed suit hours later, approving the bill 300 to 128 — veto-proof margins in both chambers.

Once again, cocaine Mitch and the Establishment Republicans do just what the money people told them to do. Keep the borders wide open and rev up the illegal alien population for cheap labor at the request of his BFF´s at the Chamber of Commerce, K-Street, etc.

The horrific truth is that Mitch McConnell has not the least bit of interest in the safety, security, prosperity of Normal American citizens. Piglosi and UpChuck are not the only ones who hate normal Americans,it´s time to admit the unthinkable truth that Mitch is as cowardly and traitorous as Piglosi and UpChuck.

Sundance is correct, things will never improve for ordinary American citizens until Mitch takes his corrupt hands off the leavers of power.

Obviously both the Democrat and Republican Congressional leadership wants the borderline to remain insecure, the Democrats to generate and harvest as many new foreign born voters as possible and the Republicans to facilitate as much cheap foreign labor as possible continuing to gain entry to the USA. That is clearly evidenced by the fact that the leadership of both political parties have been kicking that can (issue) down the road for as long as most people can remember. If both the congressional Democrat and Republican leadership will not support the President in effectively securing the borderline, and engineer congressional votes against the President’s borderline security agenda there is not much any President can do until the American people wake up and elect a new Congress that takes national security to heart.

Not only did the Congress not fund an effective borderline barrier to keep drug and illegal alien smugglers out of the country, but instead passed a de facto amnesty for all foreign children who illegally cross the borderline along with their entire “households” and sponsors who cannot now be removed from the USA. By doing that the Congress essentially put those massive classes of illegal aliens into a catagory that is known in legal circles as being in the USA “Under the color of law” that grants them eligibility to access the USA social welfare network of taxpayer provided benefits and services, a process that will make them dependent upon Democrat operatives. Congress also provided a huge amount of funding to take care of illegal aliens that will go to Democrat aligned so-called non governmental social service organizations.

Re #26, the emergency order requires no appropriation, no new funding. As John Yoo explained today, it calls for the reallocation of funds, something the President is permitted to do in a national emergency.

Nadler is stomping around, calling for a Judiciary Committee hearing on separation of powers, etc., etc. It is he who is having the problem with separation of powers. This power was given to the president of the United States by the Congress.

WASHINGTON — Attorney General William Barr spent Saturday reviewing the special counsel’s confidential report on the Trump-Russia investigation, but Barr’s “principal conclusions” summary for Congress was not coming for at least another day. No summary for Judiciary Committee leaders — or the public — just yet, said a senior Justice Department official, speaking only on condition of anonymity because the person wasn’t authorized to publicly discuss the review process. Barr has said he expected to send his version to the lawmakers as soon as this weekend after determining what should be made public.

Even though we do not yet know exactly what the Mueller Report says, we do now know that no other indictments are in the works. No collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign was found. So, the self-assured and confident predictions by so many on the left that they had seen "cold, hard evidence," and that Mueller would find copious evidence of "collusion" with Russia, was just wishful thinking alone. They all had to know the infamous "dossier" was faked.

Democrat 2020 candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke warned from the campaign trail in South Carolina Friday night there may not be another year of America if the Mueller report is not made public. “Republicans and Democrats should do whatever they can to make sure their constituents, the American people, can read that report, form their own judgement, make their own decisions, and that the truth comes out,” O’Rourke said at a campaign stop in South Carolina Friday. O’Rourke warned that America may not see another year if details of Russian interference in the 2016 election included in the Mueller report are

The Washington National Cathedral disputed President Trump´s claim that he had to "approve" the funeral of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). "Washington National Cathedral was honored to host the funeral service for Senator John McCain. All funerals and memorial services at the Cathedral are organized by the family of the deceased; only a state funeral for a former president involves consultation with government officials," a cathedral spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill on Thursday. "No funeral at the Cathedral requires the approval of the president or any other government official," he added.

This spelling and grammar test from the 1980s is so difficult that it is claimed no one can get more than 50 per cent of the answers right. The 20-question quiz promises to leave even the brightest brains scratching their heads. Indeed it is so tricky that its creator, Playbuzz user Terry Stein, claims players will ´never´ be able to score more than 10 out of 20. So if you think you have what it takes then scroll down to take the test in full. But the answers are at the bottom - so no cheating...

A few months ago, Colton Haas and I traveled to the once beautiful city of San Francisco, hoping to have a question answered: What happened to San Francisco? (Video) Erica Sandberg, a community advocate and journalist, broke it down for us: "Right now the major issue — people always call it homelessness — but the major issue is drugs." While San Francisco has always battled homelessness and currently has about 7,000 homeless people, the drug issue is exacerbating the problem. The city currently hands out more than 400,000 syringes each month but only 246,000 are returned, leaving 154,000 syringes left

First of all, of course everyone should wait to see the contents of the actual Mueller report before drawing any specific final conclusions about it. But here are some laws of nature in the modern age: If that report contained a fraction of the damaging material breathlessly awaited in the media culture for two years, there would be some smoke signal of it. Instead, we saw an actual finding from the Justice Department that there would be no further indictments from the probe. No indictment of Trump. No indictment of anyone associated with the campaign or the administration to support

Hours after New Zealand announced prohibitions against semiautomatic rifles and shotguns, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) tweeted the U.S. needs to follow the gun ban example. Feinstein tweeted: “In country after country, massacres are followed by sweeping changes to gun laws, as logic would dictate. The United States needs to follow these examples and take action to protect Americans from this deadly public health scourge.” She attached a statement to her tweet wherein she noted: Here at home in America, since the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School, we’ve suffered through at least 227 school shootings that killed 143 and left

MSNBC’s top Russiagate conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow burst into tears on Friday — after the past two years of her reporting was revealed to be nonsense.On Friday, it was revealed that there would be no more indictments from Robert Mueller’s office, sealed or otherwise, which completely contradicts the tall tales that she has been selling her viewers. Barely holding it together, Maddow emotionally explained that she is on a fishing trip in Tennessee and came into a studio — despite having had the day off. (Videos/Tweets) Clinging to absolutely anything to avoid apologizing for her bogus reporting, Maddow claimed that

A group of black seminarians is seeking amends for the Princeton Theological Seminary’s founders’ and early faculty’s ties to slavery. The Association of Black Seminarians posted a petition online earlier this month as a response to a report that detailed the seminary’s history with slavery, which was released last year. So far, the group has collected more than 400 signatures on the petition, which asks for $5.3 million annually to fund tuition grants for black students and establish a Black Church Studies program.(Snip) “Princeton Theological Seminary is uniquely positioned to lead the theological academy in addressing historic, structural, educational
