President Trump is prepared to exercise the first veto of his presidency.
With news of Republicans in the Senate lining up to block Trump’s latest move to call a national emergency to secure $7 billion to fund the border wall, Trump is threatening to exercise his veto power.
A Democratic-controlled House and few Republicans who are willing to flip in the Senate are enough for this resolution to pass both chambers of Congress. Illinois Democratic Senator Tammy Duckworth and Ohio Republican Jim Jordan expect this resolution pass the House and the Senate through simple majority votes.
Trump’s plan aims to redirect $3.6 billion in military construction funding toward the border project. Additionally, Trump is pursuing a separate executive action to repurpose about $2.5 billion from the Defense Department’s drug-interdiction program and $600 million from the Treasury Department’s asset-forfeiture fund. According to officials, the end goal is to build roughly 234 miles of barriers along the border. This border wall funding is on top of the approximately $1.4 billion directed toward building 55 miles of barrier, which came about as a result of the border security compromise passed last week.
However, the political establishment’s resolution will encounter a major roadblock once Trump vetoes it. Senate Democrats have an uphill battle in getting enough votes to override the veto, thus putting their obstructionist agenda on the backburner.
Regardless of what happens, this resolution is just another case of the DC political establishment trying to obstruct and derail President Trump’s America First agenda at all costs.
From Republicans who held solid majorities from 2016 to 2018 to rabidly anti-border security Democrats, Trump has faced resistance from all angles.
Now with his latest declaration of a state of emergency at the southern border, Democrats along with several establishment Republicans have put on their best Constitutionalist disguise.
It’s amusing how a political class who has treated the Constitution like an afterthought in the past century, is now all of the sudden talking about the Constitution and limited government.
When the very cultural fabric of the United States is at stake, these do-nothing politicians should leave their political posturing for another occasion.
Anyone with political sense will see through the DC Swamp’s obstructionist ruse for what it is—another scheme to preserve the globalist status quo.
Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel
Post-pandemic America will not look the same.
Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, said to Reuters on January 14, 2021 that domestic travel patterns will not revert to pre-Wuhan virus pandemic standards.
In a Zoom call with Jonathan Weber, the global technology editor for Reuters, Chesky said that business travel will move towards leisure travel due to the fact that software like Zoom facilitates teleconferencing at unprecedented rates.
Furthermore, Chesky speculates that people won’t be visiting America’s largest cities as much as before, nor will they stay at crowded hotels. Instead, he believes that “many people will travel by car – some will travel by plane – and they’re going to travel to thousands of smaller communities. And many of these communities are going to be smaller cities and or even rural areas.”
Additionally, the Airbnb CEO notes that “farm stays are huge right now” and that national parks travel will become a major trend among travelers in the upcoming months. The latter will grow, in Chesky’s view, because most Americans have not visited such parks.
According to an Airbnb survey, 54% of Americans have plans of traveling in 2021 or they’re in the process of planning out their trips for the summer. Chesky asserted that travelers are “yearning for what was taken away from them.” He added, “they’re not yearning to see Times Square. What they are yearning to do is to see their friends and their families they have not seen in a long time.”
Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge raised an interesting point about this change in Americans’ travel patterns:
If Chesky is right about the significant travel shift, the hotel industry could be slated for a massive wave of bankruptcies and or consolidation to a degree never before seen.
Regardless, Americans are getting tired of the Wuhan virus lockdowns. Millions of Americans have had their freedoms infringed upon thanks to politicians who want to exploit a generalized crisis for their own gain.
If Republicans were smart, they would be unapologetically campaigning for their states to be reopened. Americans want to go back to their normal lives and engage in activities such as travel, which the political class has deprived them of.
