    Hi Jon,

    To understand how this works ABC actually made a good list to show how this works. First, an interesting side note. Trump has done 3 already. One of interest is below:

    Sept 12, 2018: The National Emergency With Respect to Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election attempted to prevent any meddling with the 2018 midterm elections amid the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

    President Clinton did this one:

    October 21, 1995: The National Emergency With Respect to Blocking Assets and Prohibiting Transactions with Significant Narcotics Traffickers Centered in Colombia was declared after increased reports of drug cartels laundering money through American companies.

    If you look over the list ABC has you can see many emergencies have been declared for seemingly insignificant things that happen around the world. The one above by President Clinton would be closely related to the one President Trump wants to declare.

    There are all kinds of government reports that would support an emergency being declared by POTUS.

    1. The number of drugs being smuggled into the United States and the number of associated deaths.

    2. The sheer number of desperate people fleeing to the United States from Central America.

    3. The number of human traffic victims.

    4. The number of women being raped.

    5. The number of children being used in various nefarious ways.

    6. The huge number of people asking for asylum and the court backlog.

    7. The financial strain being put on our economy.

    8. The strain being put on our medical facilities.

    9. The number of murders being committed.

    I could list each crime as a separate reason for declaring a national emergency but a simple list can be found on Page 4 of this PDF from a government website. This is just one government report.

    If we look over the list of declared emergencies related to other countries it is easy to see why we are in a state of emergency in the U.S. Many Presidents have declared emergencies for foreign countries and their situation was not nearly as bad as ours in many cases.

    Hope that helps!

    Did President Trump just admit that the “National Emergency” is bullshit. His speech today totally negated his justification of the Wall.

    ““I didn’t need to do this,” he said. “But I’d rather do it much faster.””

    He DID NOT need to do this, he is just speeding it up. He’s an old man and we all know how impatient oldsters get. Wow. Are we getting a National Emergency because he has a short attention span?

    His repeated statements about how he is already building the wall and it should be done soon is very scary.

    For a Business Man, he sure is talking out of the side of his mouth when he keeps says Mexico WILL pay for it, through the new trade deal. Mexico won’t pay for the wall this way, we do! We pay higher prices due to the tax. Same with the Trade War with China. The consumers are the ones who pay the taxes.

    Where is this wall that the President says is under construction?

    Why is there a “National Emergency” if the is no urgent need for the wall, and it is already being built?

    Something does not add up.

    Should the Mueller Report be released unredacted?

    So in order to pay for the fake National Emergency, President Trump is going to take money from the military.  He is going to take money from Pay, Retirements, Repairs and Upgrades to Military Housing Hospitals, and other Medical Facilities.

    Sorry, this is bullshit.

    Nope, He’s not racist.

     

    From the Washington Post:

    Puerto Rico has started cutting benefits paid out by a food stamps program used by more than 1 million of its residents, as federal lawmakers have not provided the island with additional emergency disaster funding amid opposition from the Trump administration.

    On Monday, Puerto Rico started reducing food stamp benefits by an average of 25 percent, part of an effort to sustain a program that has seen a dramatic increase in demand in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in 2017, said a spokesman for Puerto Rico’s department of family affairs.

    “Speaking at a Monday conference for U.S. military veterans in Virginia, Donald Trump suggested those who suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder when they return from war are not as “strong” as those who are able to “handle it.””

    Yep, this is someone for Vets to support.  Not its the first time something like this happened.

    By far, the worst thing President Trump has accomplished, so far, is to destroy our country’s reputation.

    How many of our Allies are demanding more proof of Iran’s attacks?  They no longer trust our country.  Other than by the despots using Trump for their own propaganda efforts, with which the President cooperates fully.

    Having a Liar in Chief, instead of a Commander in Chief has destroyed our reputation for good.  Who will trust our country to keep its word when they know a new President can change things to suit his our worldview.  That any commitments our country has signed up for are meaningless.

    Yes, all politicians lie.  Usually, though, they do not tell such stupid lies.  President Trump lies about things that are easily disproved with Google!  President Trump lies so automatically that he lies about things he has the power to do!  How many lies were told about upgrading his children’s Security Clearances?  Why?  Is he such a compulsive liar that the first thing out of his mouth is always a lie?

    You’re right on all points Jon.  Looks like Mike and friends have their own little Jones Town cult going here with the myths of FBI deep state moles,  spying on Spankys campaign, leftists education system, etc.. Wow tools of Vlad just like Spanky.

    Mikes post and the 0 or minimal responses to them are an indication of how little, low or no interest there is from his fan base.   Mikes responses … to the few that do respond with a question, is to ignore or redirect their question with a long empty response that fits his pre conceived position.  Talk about your Psy Ops.

    Here’s hoping Mike and friends have interesting lives in their alternate reality and bless his heart.  He’s doing a heck of a job.

    PJ,

    Your comment on the “Little Jones Town Cult” is even more on spot since the “Chosen One” has revealed himself!

    Once again President Trump is showing his true feeling for the military.  Not only is he trying to take taking money slated for housing and hospitals, now he wants to change the contract with the Military concerning Dependants.  Serving Military Personnel were guanteed that their children would be born US Citizens even though they are born out of the country to non-Citizens.  These are people Protecting and Defending our Country while being told they are not good enough to be Citizens.

    Wow, Trump just can not let anything go!  The whoop-de-do about Alabama shows what is wrng with “President” Trump, he just can not admit that he made a mistake.

    He made a MISTAKE in mentining that Alabama was in danger.  So What?  No one cared!  I don’t remeber seeing anything mentioning that gaffe before Trump himself started making a big scence about it.  Now he has a Government Agency release false data to soothe his ego.

    President Trump made a mistake, everyone does.  Except him it seems.  If he had not created “Sharpie-Gate”, it would have been forgotten.  But since he is unable to admit that he made a mistake, we have this huge falderal, that he created.  President Trump is not the victim here, he is the instagator.

    Everything sbout this Falderal that shows his inability to lead this country.

    Why is President Trump above the law? Isn’t he the one who is suppose to enforce the law?

    If he did nothig wrong, why won’t he turn the Whistle-Blower report over? (Like the Law requires)

    If he did nothig wrong, why won’t he turn over his tax returns? (Like Tradition requires)

    If Trump gets all the power he wants, what happens when a Democrat is elected? Do you want a Democratic President with all the powers you are willing to see the President Trump grab?

    Obama with that much power, how’s that for a nightmare.
    Even before the Election, Donald Trump called for a country to spy on his opponet. Now he has Gulliani in the Ukraine asking for them to give him dirt on a another political Opponent.

    He has directed people to ignore subpoenas.

    He has encourage people to lie to Congress and the Justice Dept.

    He makes more money off of his property now. He wants to hold a major World Conference on his property!!!

    He illegally used corporate resources to pay an employee to write a political speech

    He violated election laws by emailing foreign officials to solicit political contributions

    He violated federal laws by offering Ben Carson a job in exchange for his endorsement

    He’s run afoul of election laws by using campaign contributions to pay $6 million to his own businesses

    He violated Wisconsin election laws by talking with voters as they stood in line to vote

    He violated immigration laws by misrepresenting his company on work-visa applications, several times!

    Used illegal immigrants and mob to build Trump Tower

    Hillary Clinton has been investigated and scrutinized for decades. She’s endured years of partisan Congressional hearings, FBI investigations, and independent counsel probes. Donald Trump can’t even handle the scrutiny of having one year of tax returns examined, in spite of his own hypocrisy about the release of personal records:

    Why does Obama believe he shouldn’t comply with
    record releases that his predecessors did of their
    own volition? Hiding something?
    Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 30, 2012)

    Now THAT’S Hypocisy!!
