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.

CAUCUS CHAOS: Democrat Mouthpieces Try to Downplay Bernie’s Victory Because of Volunteer Shortages
In an effort to downplay the inevitably of Bernie Sander’s victory at the Nevada caucuses, CNN political analyst Laura Barrón-López was reporting about chaos taking place throughout caucus sites in the state.
She first Tweeted, “New: POLITICO has heard from multiple Democrats, campaigns on the ground that there is a shortage of volunteers at caucus sites Story is developing… 1/”
Then she followed up in another Tweet, stating “NSDP party officials are telling campaign representatives that there’s a deficit of volunteers across the state, and so they are asking representatives of campaigns to act as precinct chairs, per multiple sources on ground.”
Barrón-López continued talking about the shortage of volunteers: “Per Dem source: ‘I’m at Spring Valley High School and a lot of the Nevada Dem Party volunteers did not show up. They are worried about the precinct chairs showing up as well.’”
With Sanders winning, the Democrat establishment is clearly on the ropes.
They are trying to pull every rationalization possible to downplay and not recognize Bernie Sanders’ victories.
The Democrat leadership is clearly rattled and they’re starting to come to grips with the reality that Donald Trump will practically be a shoo-in for a second term.
