12 Republicans Join Democrats To Block Trump’s National Emergency For Border Security

The Senate voted 59-41 on a resolution to end President Donald Trump’s national emergency to build a wall along the southern border.

Twelve Republicans voted with Democrats.   Those GOP members who voted for the resolution cited concerns about the expansion of presidential powers, even though the Congress gave the National Emergencies power to the office of the president back in 1976.

“I’m going to be voting in favor of the resolution of disapproval,” Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, told reporters ahead of the vote. “This is a constitutional question, it’s a question of the balance of power that is core to our constitution.”

Everyone knows Romney voted against it because he hates Donald Trump.  The rest of the senators who voted for the resolution said not one damn thing when president Pen & Phone illegally created the DACA program, which in my eyes, after this vote, makes them cowards.

Again, the National Emergencies Act was done in 1976, and I haven’t found the clause that says, ‘Unless the president is Donald Trump.”

These senators have said they oppose any form of executive overreach, which includes former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) illegal alien amnesty.

However, one federal district judge ruled in August 2018 that DACA was illegal, whereas many lawyers have argued that Trump has the authority under the National Emergencies Act of 1976 to reappropriate money to build the wall.

The other Republicans who voted to oppose the declaration were Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, Rob Portman, R-Ohio; Susan Collins, R-Maine; Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, Marco Rubio, R-Fla., Rand Paul, R-Ky., Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., Roger Wicker, R-Miss., Roy Blunt, D-Mo., Jerry Moran, R-Kansas, and Pat Toomey, R-Pa.

That’s twelve Republicans who should be met with primaries the next time their term comes up.  To pick the issue of border security to claim Constitutionalism, after years of allowing all kinds of unconstitutional things to be done, and not going after things not mentioned in the Constitution that were done years before they got into the Senate just shows they are against Trump, and are not serious about border security.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., before the vote, said he “takes his hat off” to Republicans voting with Democrats, while accusing Trump of “going around Congress” with the declaration.  That goes to show how ignorant Schumer is, because once again, the power to declare a national emergency was given to him by the very same Congress Schumer is saying Trump was going around.

Trump is certain to respond to the resolution with his first presidential veto.

The president tweeted before of the vote that if Congress wants to amend the law governing emergency declarations in the future, “I will support those efforts.”

Shortly before the vote on Thursday Trump said that “a vote for today’s resolution by Republican senators is a vote for Nancy Pelosi, crime and the Open Border Democrats.”  And he’s right.

Okay, so are these senate GOP clowns now going to explain where in the Constitution are the powers for the Department of Education, HUD, Department of Transportation, Department of Energy, and 99% of the other things the Congress created that are not listed as powers in Article I or II?  How about the Air Force?  For that matter, can someone show me where in Article III it says that the Supreme Court has the power to interpret the Constitution, because I read the Constitution, even held it up to the light, upside down, and poured lemon juice on it, and I still couldn’t find it.

I mean, if they really want to go Constitutional then bring it on, and don’t stop at screwing over Trump.

This was a political move against the president with a cover story that these senators are concerned about the Constitution.  For goodness’ sake we’re talking about Chuck Schumer, who I don’t believe has ever read the Constitution, and even if he has, I don’t think anyone has ever explained to him what it means.

I predict a huge backlash for the dozen Republicans who stabbed Trump voters in the back today.  The number one reason they voted for Trump was for border security and to bring some sanity back to our immigration system.

Transcripts: McCabe, Not Mueller, Fired FBI Agent Peter Strzok From Special Counsel Team

Transcripts of testimony that were recently released are causing all kinds of havoc in the D.C. swamp.  One set of transcripts shows fired and disgraced former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe testified that he was the one who “made the decision” to fire the disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok from the Mueller team, and not Robert Mueller himself.

“Former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe claimed he ‘made the decision’ to remove Peter Strzok from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team in the summer of 2017 after a series of anti-Trump text messages surfaced between the former FBI special agent and another official with whom he was romantically involved,” Fox News reports.

“It was long thought that Mueller had Strzok removed after the texts between him and Lisa Page were uncovered. But McCabe’s apparent role was revealed in a newly released transcript from his House Judiciary Committee interview on Dec. 21, 2017,” the article added.

Then why didn’t Mueller say this himself publicly?  He had to have known it was big news at the time when the story broke that Strzok had been removed from the team over the content of newly discovered text messages between Strzok and his lover (who was not his wife) former FBI attorney Lisa Page.  Why did Mueller allow the falsehood to go on for so long?  Was it because it made him look good in the eyes of the public?  When you are perpetrating a fraud, such as was the whole Trump-Russia collusion investigation, you’ll take anything that makes you look good.

“They said they had a very important matter for me to review and they needed me to come across the street and talk to them that day, which was unusual,” McCabe told lawmakers in July 2017. “I made the decision to remove him from the investigation that evening.”

McCabe lied back in March when he claimed that the phony Steele dossier was “accurately represented” when it was used to apply for a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.

“I do believe that we adequately notified the FISA Court of the information we were using, and what we thought of the information,” McCabe said over the weekend.

“I think everyone was satisfied that we had represented that accurately and adequately in the package,” he added. “I do think we represented it adequately”

Yeah, and I’m Mary, Queen of Scots.

McCabe was fired from the FBI in March last year, only days before he was scheduled to retire.  He has claimed that he was fired because of the Trump administration’s ongoing war with the FBI.  In reality, McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, after his firing was recommended by both the Department of Justice’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz and the FBI’s own Office of Professional Responsibility, because he leaked to the Washington Post, and he lied to Congress under oath when he denied that he leaked to the Washington Post.  When you join the FBI, the first thing they teach you at the academy is if you are caught lying, you’re done.  The FBI takes their agents lying very seriously, as it should, because agents must be able to be  trusted with the powers they are given to do their job.  McCabe and Strzok fell far short of that trust.

Donald Trump Jr Weighing Run for NYC Mayor

According to Page Six, the gossip page of the NY Post, which can be found coincidentally on page 6, Donald Trump Jr is considering a run for mayor of NYC next time out. Although Page Six is a gossip page, it has a long history of being right on it’s articles. But, Trump Jr really would have no chance in an election in one of the most liberal cities on the planet. He might want to do something really crazy like cutting taxes and he would probably have encouraged Amazon to build the campus in the city and create 25,000 jobs. Heaven forbid.

From The Gateway Pundit

Donald Trump Jr. is reportedly weighing a run against Bill de Blasio to become New York City’s next mayor.

According to a report from Page Six, “drums are beating that Donald Jr. would like to run for mayor.”

“We are not talking some parched sod in Iowa, where the corn is as high as a Democrat’s eye. Kiddies, mother is saying friends are saying he is saying he’d like to run for mayor of New York City,” the gossip column’s report asserted.

Trump Jr. is wildly popular among the president’s base.

Earlier this month, de Blasio announced that he will be running for president in the Democratic primary. He was the 24th candidate to announce.

President Trump ripped de Blasio as the ‘worst mayor’ in the United States in a video following his announcement that he is running for president.

In a tweet prior to his official announcement, President Trump said that “the Dems are getting another beauty to join their group. Bill de Blasio of NYC, considered the worst mayor in the U.S., will supposedly be making an announcement for president today. He is a JOKE, but if you like high taxes & crime, he’s your man. NYC HATES HIM!”

Ilhan Omar Promotes Al Jazeera the Day After They Release Anti-Semitic Video

Ilhan Omar of the House Caucus endorsed Al Jazeera the day after they released the Anti-Semitic video calling the Holocaust into question. The video actually claims that the Holocaust was beneficial to Jews and that 6 million dead is a made up number. Al Jazeera is owned by the Qatar royal family, who sponsors terrorism in the Middle East. The video was titled “The gas chambers killed millions of Jews … So the story says. How true is the #Holocaust and how did the Zionists benefit from it?”

From The Daily Caller

Omar’s spokesman Jeremy Slevin did not respond to a request from The Daily Caller News Foundation asking about what steps, if any, Omar took to “call out hate and bigotry” in regards to the Holocaust video.

AJ+ is a youth brand of Al Jazeera. Al Jazeera issued a statement on May 19 saying that “Dr. Yaser Bishr, Executive Director of Digital Division, stated that Al Jazeera completely disowns the offensive content in question and reiterated that Al Jazeera would not tolerate such material on any of the Network’s platforms. In an email to staff he also called for the mandatory bias training and awareness program.” It said two journalists would be disciplined.

Despite the apology, Al Jazeera was apparently trying to keep westerners from finding outthe contents of the video it published — with an assist by Twitter. The social media platform subsequently blocked English translations of the video, displaying only a grey box that says that “the media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.”
