Rushy is referring to the amusing conspiracy theories some conservatives are spreading about how Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead or dying.

She's ancient and not well. Odds are in the admin's favor there will be a third pick. Dems set the table for the nuclear option somewhere in the 10's, Repubs pulled the trigger in 2017.  Simple majority in the Senate is all that is required. My guess, if RGB needs to be replaced, someone young and female. Obviously conservative. The young factor helps to stave off future Dem appointee possibilities given the nuclear option has been deployed, cat is out of the bag for both parties, as it were. Female b/c it appears a 1 for 1, whatever that means. It's all optics and politics. Sad, as DJT would say.

Friendly reminder that Trump is the God Emperor and it's only a matter of time before the US finally evolves into the Imperium of Man.

I love this argument. Trump is too ignorant for this to have been the nasty punchline it looks like! He's probably never even heard of the Trail of Tears! And it's actually somewhat convincing, given how often Trump has demonstrated his ignorance of basic historical details. The strongest argument in favor of it being deliberate is Trump's admiration of Andrew Jackson and newfound interest in his presidency.

"Although EO 13858 may fail, in the near term, to impose outright Buy American procurement preferences on federal assistance awards, it unquestionably presents an opportunity for domestic companies supplying these taxpayer-financed public infrastructure markets to encourage agencies to follow through with plans and programs that further the President's directives. For manufacturers of products that have not historically benefited from the limited scope and applicably of existing federal-aid Buy America laws, EO 13858 presents significant opportunities."

It'll cost more (which is bad given the tax cuts) but I'm in favor of this EO.

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2019/02/12/nbc_dilanian_senate_probe_finds_no_evidence_of_russian_collusion_in_trump_campaign.html
"KEN DILANIAN, NBC NEWS INTELLIGENCE AND NATIONAL SECURITY REPORTER: Hallie, after two years and after interviewing more than 200 witnesses, the Senate Intelligence Committee has not uncovered any direct evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia. That's according to sources on both the Republican and the Democratic side of the aisle, Hallie, and careful viewers and readers will note that Senate Richard Burr, the chairman of the intelligence committee who loads this probe, essentially said that in an interview with another network last week, but what I've been doing since then is checking with my sources on the democratic side to understand the full context of his remarks because that was essentially a partisan comment from one side, but this is a bipartisan investigation and what I found is that the Democrats don't dispute that characterization." (emphasis mine)
LMMFAO!

"The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday rejected arguments by the state of California and environmental groups who tried to block work that has mostly been completed near San Diego and Calexico.

The 2-1 opinion upheld a lower court decision that found the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 allows the Department of Homeland Security to avoid lengthy environmental reviews to speed construction of border barriers."

Sounds like a piece of Clinton era legislation being held up. Nothing to do with Trump.

Also, NAFTA kinda makes that impossible, doesn't it?  He'd have to remove NAFTA first.

He did it.


Now, when a Democrat gets the office, they can declare a national emergency on the next mass shooting.  Cause if drugs and thugs coming through legal checkpoints is an emergencyx surely the thousands of yearly gun desths are as well.

He’s a petulant giant toddler who couldn’t get his own way through the democratic process so has just thrown his toys out of the pram and circumvented that process by spuriously using powers which are meant to be used only at a time of genuine national emergency.
It’s all very “dictatory”. He fires people who don’t agree with him and attempts to delegitimise the press - the very people who are supposed to help hold him to account.
He is stupid and powerful, that’s a dangerous combination.
If you are making your claim without evidence then we can discard it without evidence.

Obama declared several national emergencies for just that reason, and used it to seize arms that were being exported to various third world countries (25. Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Conflict in the Central African Republic (May 12, 2014)), under the guise of anti-terrorism. In fact, of Obama's 13 national emergencies that he declared during his presidency, eleven are still in effect: https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/07/politics/trump-wall-active-national-emergency/index.html?

It's almost like US presidents have been abusing their power more and more as the years go by and each president acts like the opposing party isn't going to use the very same things in just a few years. Remember when the Democrat congress voted to making position confirmations only a simple majority, then Republicans used that very same law only two years later to confirm judges? It's almost like our short-sighted politicians fail to think ahead at all.

The ongoing attitude of "Well the Republicans did it, so now we should do it" combined with "Well the Democrats did it, so now we should do it" is snowballing and rolling the country right off a cliff. This is why having two parties which are endlessly devoted to expanding the government is absolutely terrible.

Well.... I guess I need to recind my previous post.


We've been taking property for decades.
The biggest difference is Trump has said its not an emergency.  But thats hardly a big difference.

My understanding is that presidential national emergencies have to be re-upped, so to speak, yearly. As in when one is declared it has a year life span and then expires unless it is ok'd again. So if Obama has 11 still in effect, they have all been re-upped by DJT.
