THE WALL WINS: Trump’s Emergency Declaration STANDS

Published

on

BREAKING: 2:05 PM EST Tuesday, March 26, 2019
The U.S. House of Representatives has FAILED to overturn President Donald Trump’s declaration of an emergency to reprogram federal funds to finance the building of a border wall.
The building of the wall is already mandated by the Secure Fence Act of 2006.  Trump’s declaration of an emergency ONLY authorizes President Trump to repurpose federal funding to pay for the border wall according to the National Emergencies Act of 1976 (as later amended).  Using dishonest smear tactics, opponents of change have tried to suggest that a future president could use such powers to make purely legislative changes.   The declaration of emergency only activates certain powers already written into laws passed by Congress to redploy federal funds to meet the emergency.
Congress voted to terminate Trump’s declaration of an emergency with 12 pseudo-Republican U.S. Senators voting with the Democrats to keep the orders unsecured and open.
Note that the National Emergencies Act of 1976 gives either the President or Congress the power to “terminate” — not invalidate — a president’s declaration of an emergency.  That means that any actions taken before an emergency is terminated would remain valid.  The Congressional vote was to bring the emergency to a close, an end, not to over-turn actions taken during the course of a presidentially-declared emergency.
Under the amended version of the national Emergencies Act (following a U.S. Supreme Court decision in INS v. Chadha) Trump vetoed that resolution.
The U.S. House today tried to overturn Trump’s veto.   That would have required a 2/3rds vote, so that a minimum of 146 votes against the veto over-ride (in favor of Trump’s declaration of an emergency) were needed to sustain President Trump’s veto.
Republicans voted against overturning the veto by 181 in Trump’s favor to 14 traitors voting with the Democrats against border security.
ALL Democrats voted against building a border wall and against border security.  Those are votes which will be used in the 2020 election campaigns against those Democrats in districts that supported Donald Trump in 2016 and/or 2018.
UPDATE:  Note that because the U.S. House has failed to over-ride the President’s veto, it does not matter what happens in the U.S. Senate. The veto stands.  There might not be any vote in the U.S. Senate.  But both chambers would have to both over-turn the veto by a 2/rds margin.  So the President’s emergency declaration stands in force.

Dan ‘McCain 2.0’ Crenshaw Outlines His Plan to Give Amnesty to Millions of Illegal Aliens

Crenshaw is a faux-conservative.

Published

on

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) recently outlined his plan to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens while appearing on a podcast.

A clip is going viral on social media of Crenshaw detailing his plan to flood the U.S. with third-world migrants and crowd native workers from well-paying jobs in the marketplace.

“I put it in simple terms, uh, ya know, zero tolerance on illegal immigration. We truly lock down the border, and then we can have a conversation about a more streamlined legal immigration system that is based on merit rather than familial connections,” he said.

While Crenshaw may want to lock down the border (or so he claims), he is open to schemes that would allow the low-income workers to flood into the U.S. from desolate countries and squeeze Americans out of quality employment.

“I’m willing to have a conversation about a more streamlined version of work visas,” he said.

Crenshaw noted that after the U.S. has “plugged the leak,” conservatives should embrace giving amnesty to the millions of illegal aliens that have broken the law to come into the country.

“I think restitution might be an option there… Here’s generally what I think. If you’ve committed a crime, a crime other than your VISA overstay or crossing the border illegally, I have zero tolerance for that. ICE should deport you,” Crenshaw said.

He went on to explain that conservatives need to recognize that amnesty is inevitable and surrender to the Left on the issue.

“If you’ve just been here working, we can’t deport 15-20 million people. That’s not feasible. Conservatives have to, like, recognize that fact,” he said.

In addition to being an amnesty lover, Crenshaw also supports red flag laws that eliminate due process and make a mockery of the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution:

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) has revealed a bombshell, perhaps accidentally, that he supported red flag gun control since before he started his run for Congress, showing that he lied on the campaign trail about his firm support of the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.

“I’ve been thinking seriously about this policy for years. It was not something I recently heard of. The NRA supported well-crafted GVRO,” Crenshaw told Kaitlin Bennett of Liberty Hangout, referring to a gun violence restraining order that would allow a judge to order the seizure of firearms from an individual deemed a public safety risk.

Crenshaw has gone further than supporting GVROs. He publicly endorsed pre-crime legislation such as red flag laws and The Threat Assessment, Prevention, and Safety (TAPS) Act following mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton earlier this month.

After Bennett, an Infowars reporter and avid 2nd Amendment supporter, criticized Crenshaw on social media as a gun grabber, he sent a series of demeaning private messages to her on Twitter criticizing her activism and unwillingness to accept his excuses for infringing upon the 2nd Amendment. She exposed Crenshaw’s untoward behavior in a YouTube video.

“I hope you rethink your tactics in the future, because they are only effective at alienating people on both sides. You won’t ever persuade anyone, and you’ll drive out your allies,” Crenshaw wrote condescendingly to Bennett.

“When you alienate people, you remove yourself from any productive conversations. As you move forward as an activist, you should ask yourself if that’s really what you want,” he added.

Crenshaw was recently photographed having one of these “productive conversations” with gun confiscation activists from Moms Demand Action, a front group funded by billionaire former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg.

Crenshaw has picked up where the late songbird John McCain left off, continuing his predecessor’s promotion of globalism wrapped in the U.S. flag to unsuspecting Republicans.
