    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.
