With that said, I personally disagree with invoking an EA on this. If he can't get it done through normal channels then it shouldn't get done.


Your president doesnt give a crap. Hes a dick.
He's pulling a Barry Obama move for sure.

You gotta give The Donald credit for sticking with the precedent set by the previous administration.


I don't agree. What did Obama do that's comparable to this?


He declared amnesty for illegal aliens

He also reappropriated funds for Obamacare

This is what I was thinking.

MAybe trump can say, I tried.



Thats all this is a face saving measure

Still dumb

A saving face measure? How so?

Anyone with half a brain should agree this is an abuse of power, and a dangerous precedent.

Shame on any conservatives who roll their eyes, shrug their shoulders and let him take this path because they are sick of arguing with him. (You know who you are.) This is going to backfire on them in a major wayand the tragedy is that every one of them knows this. The core of conservatism has always been a distrust of a powerful national government and the necessity of imposing restraints on it. Thats out the window now, like nearly every other tenet that held the movement together.

For a decade now, the right has warned about a progressive dictator like Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton forcing the United States to pursue policies that the majority does not want. Now they are making it so much easier for the next Democratic president to do exactly that. Shortly after learning of Trumps decision to declare a national emergency to build his beloved border wall, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said a left-wing president might just as well declare an emergency to impose any policies they want, too. As Elizabeth Warren tweeted: Gun violence is an emergency. Climate change is an emergency. Our country's opioid epidemic is an emergency. You see where this is headed.

Funny because conservatives are usually the first to cry when there is government overreach.

There should be a record of these National Emergency Declarations somewhere, yes?

All I found was that Obama declared 13 National Emergencies over his span, none of which dealt with illegal immigration or Obamacare. Rather, they generally acted to punish people involved in foreign terrorism and such.

Weird.
