Uhhhh….if it’s a true State of Emergency it doesn’t wait. That’s going to be their argument in three weeks.

I like the site but I would like a rational analysis absent the Ann Coulter crowd.

I think you are correct. This from an earlier thread:

Are you listening to his speech? “We have no choice but to build a wall”. If no funding, “I will address this emergency”
declare a national emergency after three weeks and is strongly hinting he will. That will not be a cave, and it will be up to a conservative majority Supreme Court to decide if he acted lawfully.

You need to look beyond the issue of who is winning the day’s news cycle. The Dems win today, but I see no reason why he won’t declare a national emergency- the worst that can happen is the courts stop him, but, if that happens, he can still say he tried.

My comment

THIS IS THE NEXT STEP. NO COMPROMISE FROM THE DEMS ON A BORDR SECURITY/BARRIER SYSTEM FOR THE NEXT THREE WEEKS. THEN A POSSIBLE FURTHER SHUT DOWN AS THE SUPER BOWL IS OVER (AND THAT IS AN INDICTMENT OF JUST HOW UNSERIOUS AND SHALLOW AND FECKLESS A LOT OF THE AMERICANS THE DEMS WANT TO ‘REPLACE’ ARE)

Sorry I am not yelling. I hit the damn ‘caps lock’ key accidentally

With the SB out of the way another shutdown even longer and a clear threat of a national emergency declaration. In spite of this being within the President's powers several prog judges on the 9th Circuit or somewhere else will issue an injunction to stop this. Will the President refuse to recognize the injunction as an improper and unconstitutional infringement on executive powers and push ahead. I hope so, but the excrement will hit the fan and parts of the federal bureaucracy including parts of the military departments will either refuse to act or stall by malicious compliance tactics. The dems will certainly use these events as a basis for voting Articles of Impeachment. After that who knows other than it will be a hot summer inside the beltway with huge amounts of media screaming 24/7.

The big question would be if the President will officially ignore the injunction and declare it to be an unconstitutional infringement on his powers as Commander in Chief. The dems would certainly get impeachment articles from the House. The rubber meets the road moment is when the Executive is faced with a refusal by parts of the executive branch and the armed forces to execute his orders or engage in malicious obedience. At that point it is time for the President to start dismissal and calling on allies within the states to execute the Presidential declaration. This is what a sort of civil conflict could look like. DJT needs to get some elocution lessons and prepare the speech or speeches of his life. Read the sort that TR gave i.e. ‘We stand at Armageddon and fight for the Lord’. Because it would be political and constitutional existential crisis in effect political Armageddon.

The problem is you are fixated on this move. Trump is working on three moves ahead. The Congress has 2 weeks to fix it after the Senate Republicans delivered their ultimatum. When they fail to get it done, he will invoke the Executive Order and the Judiciary, in the form of some idiot District Court Judge will stop him. That will go to the Supreme Court. If he loses that fight, we will have a true Constitutional crisis, but I don’t think that Trump is going to lose.

When you are facing a coup d’etat by the elitists within the Beltway, you have to outsmart them.

Disagree.

He is acting to avoid massive public dissatisfaction due to lack of air traffic controllers, in contrast to San Fran Nan’s endless “no, no, no.”. At the same time, he has made it clear that he will declare an emergency on 2/15 if she doesn’t cave by then...and yesterday came news that the DoD has found $7 billion to use for a wall, not the $5.7 that he was looking for. He should spend every dime and, I believe, will do so to shove it up her and Chuckies’s rear ends

That is why the Gateway Pundit is nothing but a political site.

Trump now has the RATS in a box. If nothing happens in three weeks, Trump’s Executive Action will be definitely be justified.

Let Pelosi and Schumer take their False Victory Lap. They are playing politics, Trump is playing on a higher level, and still within their OODA Loop!

“I ran around like a faggot without a head too many times ... “

LOL!!!! :-)

I’ve done the same ... not with Trump, but before him. It took awhile for me to just settle down, shut the f*** up, and look at the big picture.

This was a loss today. No need to sugarcoat that. Trump blinked. However, you need to re-evaluate yourself if you’re going to mail it all in over a three week delay. So much is going to happen between now and then.

Did you (not you dp0622, just the people still upset) really think the Cohen story that came out just last week would be a complete joke at this point? Did you ever think Muller would comment to clarify that nothing they reported was true?

Relax people ... this is still just the beginning :-).

“hope you’re wrong, but I am beginning to wonder, myself.”

Pretty sad. Frees me up so I don’t have to think about it any more. I’m going to haul out my old bumper sticker, “I feel much better since I gave up hope”, have some ice cream, and watch old movies.

He should say that he is declaring a National Emergency and get the funds, if some a-hole in federal court goes against him, at least he did something and tried..take it to the Supreme Court

It was an unconditional surrender.

Anyone who denies that reality is delusional, prone to fantastic thinking.

I, for just ONE military pensioner who was NOT to receive my next pension check, am DISGUSTED that the POTUS didn’t stand firm UNTIL/UNLESS the stinky little DIMOcRATS “surrendered unconditionally” to pass the border barrier, to seal the southern border AND start deporting ALL of the illegals EN MASS.

Youes, TMN78247

“ think he just announced that he’s not running for re-election.”

Sadly, I have to agree...

Ok, the government is now open. Let’s have the State of the Union address next week and blow the doors off. If he has to stand there for 2 or more hours and lay out the whole enchilada then do it.

If so, it would be an emergent matter and the Supreme Court would consider it virtually immediately. The law is clear here, and they would not be able to stop it.
