    TRUMP voters are mainly angry, nostalgic, white males who are TOTALLY misinformed. This group has proven to be large enough to be able to steer the US on a really dangerous path.

    This fact is even more scary than this Presidency itself …

  • Bobby Smith

    It is time to bring BACK into focus the reality that Russia hacked both the RNC AND the DNC in 2016. They handed the DNC emails over to Assange but Putin KEPT the RNC's hacked emails.

    Why?

    KOMPROMAT. The GOP is being blackmailed by Trump/Putin.

  • Trumpocalypse

    The Republicans are all too eager to give up their Constitutional duty of appropriation all for the sake of retaining power. When Obama was president, the Republicans lost their minds if Obama even hinted at overstepping his authority. One might get the idea that Republicans are hypocrites…

  • The Fibler

    Is it no wonder lawyers didn't want this clown to be interviewed regarding Russian collusion? He cuts his own throat whenever he speaks or tweets.

  • tubruton

    The real emergency is the northern border. Canada keeps sending us their weather. They're cold, they're windy and some may be good weather.

  • ruth depew

    Stephen Miller is not the brains behind the president. Stephen Miller is the Nazi behind the president. Mike Pompeo and Sarah Sanders are the brains behind the president.

  • catalinacurio

    Go California! Time to rake up trump and his GOP! You “don’t need to do it”, but do it anyway. 💙🇺🇸🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

  • James Christianson

    Due to Q anon coming upon the scene… we the people know the truth of what has been going on in our government and mainstream media.
    Q has been posting carpet bombs down upon the deep state.
    We the people are taking back our country from those who have been destroying it.
    Trials in the coming months will send MANY traitors to the gallows.
    Hence the dems passing a law against lynching.
    Nothing will stop what is coming…NOTHING!!!!!!!

    Does anyone else wonder if trump is really quite smart and would rather not have a wall and instead his aim is to limit the power of future presidents, so that a future president can't call a national emergency for climate change.

  • Joseph Meholick

    the other issue is Trump corrupted the supreme court. YES Corrupted there is little question all the people trump selected are his agents essentially.
    ( this type of control using agents to side step the appearance of trump directly controlling the supreme court and other branches is a CRIME)

  • Pyro OneExSeven

    Just imagine… in few short months… The "Build da Whal" chant will be a distant memory… and in return, $8 Billion saved…

  • Deborah Freedman

    Congress needs to pass a bill that more specifically describes what constitutes an emergency, and proscribes the president taking any monies to do something Congress has denied funds to.

  • linda millson

    ironic that trump bragged about not paying taxes while debating with hillary, and now is trying to "appropriate" your tax dollars to build a non mexican paid wall to help re-elect him in 2020.

  • Kathryn Shaw

    When Trump had the majority in Congress before the election, he pursued getting a $1.5 trillion tax break benefiting largely only 1% of Americans. The other 99% would be left with wishful thinking, memories of real health care reform and scrambling to preserve the remnants of Roosevelt's New Deal that the Republicans didn't manage to destroy. Only after Trump lost his ability to carry the Legislative Branch with a simple Republican count, did he invent a National Emergency. This is a man who has been raised by a crook to become a crook. He has always been a spoiled brat, was never denied anything, has always bullied in order to get his way, has never considered the short or long-term effects of his actions, and has never been forced to be accountable for his actions. Trump has been consistently disrespecting McConnell and the Legislative Branch. He's made it perfectly clear that he intends to "rule" as a dictator or king by Executive Order without interference or meddling by Congress. Watch and listen to the message. Trump is bored. It's boring for him to keep kicking the Republican Senators in the jewels. He knows that they won't fight back. He's bored by challenging our American Constitutional law because no one has ever required him, personally, to obey the law in the past. After proclaiming a National Emergency did you see Trump or any of his advocates rush to the Southern Border to provide leadership? You saw Trump wander off for more golf and Steve Miller take advantage of a photo-op. It sounds like accomplishing that huge tax break for the 1% was a bigger National Emergency in Trump's mind than a Wall on the Southern Border will ever be. In fact, a strong case can be made that this whole Wall and National Emergency is just more of the choreographed drama that Trump excells in. It's past time for the Legislative Branch to reassert their status as co-equal partners with the Executive and Judicial Branches. McConnell has been around long enough to know that Trump is dirty and may well be treasonous, as well. It's past time to act.

    Mitchell needs to retire. Not only can't she keep up anymore, but she veers wildly in her political bias on account of being such a good corporate "journalist" for the Owners. She recently praised Eliot Abrams (notorious and unrepentant war criminal who lied to Congress and who is now the "special envoy" to Venezuela in order to set up death squads again) as a moderate!

  • Gary Fumeaux

    Why are you complaining about what your Democratic party voted on…… $1.3Bill of new wall…… This is a Democrat supported bill…. Don't you get it, the Democrats are extending the Wall, they own this as much as the Republicans. If the Dems were really against this Bill they would have removed 50Miles of Wall not added to it……. You guys are so funny to watch from the outside your Wall here in Europe. You know the ultimate goal of the wall is to keep you guys in and once it's built Trump is moving to Russia, right? …..

  • chewbactimusprime

    By his own admission he said he DID NOT need to do this. That's it. It's done. There is no emergency. Enough of this clown!

  • Donna Hearn

    I would like to have an answer to this question: Considering there has been 56 national emergencies declared since this was introduced, how come the "President Doesn't Have Authority To Violate Constitution"? Does this mean that all former emergencies were constitutional and all former presidents did have the authority? Is it only Donald Trump who doesn't have the authority?

    At 4:45 a.m., some 1.5 million German troops invade Poland all along its 1,750-mile border with German-controlled territory. Simultaneously, the German Luftwaffe bombed Polish airfields, and German warships and U-boats attacked Polish naval forces in the Baltic Sea. The Polish armed forces hoped to hold out long enough so that an offensive could be mounted against Germany in the west, but on September 17 Soviet forces invaded from the east and all hope was lost. The next day, Poland’s government and military leaders fled the country. On September 28, the Warsaw garrison finally surrendered to a relentless German siege. To Hitler, the conquest of Poland would bring Lebensraum, or “living space,” for the German people. According to his plan, the “racially superior” Germans would colonize the territory and the native Slavs would be enslaved.

    With the 2020 Presidential Race, right around the corner, President Trump, is trying to make "Peace,l", with the "LGBT Community", to "Secure" their votes!

  • RhondaH

    Where did Stephen Miller's spray hair go? LMFAO He is such a POS evil, racist stooge. Guess that makes him ideal for trumpty dumpty's dumpster fire administration.

  • Jennifer Clem

    California politicians are idiots! They have tens of thousands of homeless people living on their streets in tents using the sidewalks as a bathrooms along with used needles from shooting up drugs and they don’t care anything about those Americans they are to worried about preventing a wall to block illegals from coming in! You would think the illegals are their constituents!!

  • Manuel M

    Congress granted the President the authority to declare a national emergency at his discretion. It's well within his presidential powers and is constitutional. I'm not surprised California is suing the President. They are dependent on cheap labor and voters. Trump's case is rock solid..

  • Tim L Waterworth

    The sooner cash starts flowing, the sooner chances for cooking the books and sealing the deal with those who wonder when they're going to get theirs.

  • Soz I Nh

    I’m so confused why California wants to spend tax payers dollars on free healthcare for its illegal immigrant citizens but does not want to do anything about the homeless community in California which is very very out of control. So many needles and human poop on the ground.
