DETAILS: ‘Handful’ Of GOP Senators Moving To Stop Trump’s Border Emergency

Here we go…

Why is it that President Trump not only has to fight Democrats to get his America first agenda across, but he has to go through stubborn Republicans, too?

Did Barack Obama have this problem with members of his party?

Nope.

According to GOP Senator Lindsey Graham (SC), a “handful” of Republican Senators will move to stop Trump’s national emergency at the border.

From The Hill:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) predicted on Friday that a “handful” of Republicans will back a resolution to block President Trump’s emergency declaration to construct the U.S.-Mexico border wall.

“A handful. … [But] there will be enough [left] to sustain a veto,” Graham told Fox News, asked how many Republicans would vote with Democrats in the Senate.

Graham didn’t offer a specific number for how many of his Republican colleagues he thinks will back the resolution.

During a recent Instagram Live feed, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) went off on everything from President Trump and the border wall to white supremacy and the failed Amazon headquarters deal.

I think everybody should have the insurance I have and that’s just the way it should be.

I think [the wall is] a moral abomination. I think it’s like the Berlin wall. 70 percent of the American people think this is the dumbest idea ever.

It’s not my problem the majority of the American people think it’s a scam, a sham, a monument to white supremacy. It’s not my fault.

For those of you who don’t know about the actual deal, you should know that New York City was getting totally screwed with this Amazon deal. We were, like, on paper giving helipads. We were, like, renaming creeks. We were providing, like, hard tangible tax breaks for very little on the paper in return. The process was designed to skip every community process.

“I’m not going to just knock on the door of your house and say this is mine now,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

If I just walk up to you on the street and say, ‘hey, if you give me twenty bucks, I promise I’m gonna come back – I’m gonna leave but I gonna promise I’m gonna come back and give you a really nice coat. But I need to leave, I need to take your twenty bucks first, it’s not going to happen at once.’ You’d be like, ‘you’re crazy, no, get out of my face.’

WATCH:

Democrats have already announced they’ll be launching an investigation into the legitimacy of the emergency.

However, some people seem to be forgetting what previous presidents have done. For example, there are 31 national emergencies still ongoing – dating back to 1979.

President Carter declared two, President Clinton declared 17, and President W. Bush declared 12.

How about President Obama? His number stands at 13.

Where’s the fuss by the MSM?

From Conservative Tribune:

Then we get to former President Barack Obama, who declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. Thus far, President Trump has declared three active and ongoing national emergencies.

Of Obama’s 11 continuing national emergencies, nine of them were focused exclusively on foreign nations, while only one seemed focused on protecting America — a declaration aimed at punishing individuals “engaging in significant malicious cyber-enabled activities.”

All of the rest of Obama’s national emergencies were focused on blocking property or prohibiting transactions/travel for individuals engaged in various activities in — by order of the date of enactment — Somalia, Libya, transnational criminal organizations, Yemen, Ukraine, South Sudan, Central African Republic, Venezuela and Burundi.

BOMBSHELL: FBI Admits Hillary’s Emails Were Found In Executive Office of Obama White House

WELL, WELL, WELL!

Bill Priestap, assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division, has admitted under oath that the FBI found Hillary Clinton’s emails in the Obama White House, specifically, in the Executive Office of the president. Yup. No joke. From Judicial Watch: Judicial Watch announced today that a senior FBI official admitted, in writing and under oath, that the agency found Clinton email records in the Obama White House, specifically, the Executive Office of the President. The FBI also admitted nearly 49,000 Clinton server emails were reviewed as result of a search warrant for her material on the laptop of Anthony Weiner. […] U.S District Court Judge Royce Lamberth ordered Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers, and Clinton aides, as well as Priestap, to be deposed or answer writer questions under oath. The court ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.” https://twitter.com/TomFitton/status/1120718496034324487?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1120718496034324487&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fjust-in-49000-of-hillary-clintons-email-discovered-obama-in-hot-water-given-where-they-were-at%2F Where’s the MSM on this one, huh? Too preoccupied with doing everything in their power to keeping the uninformed uninformed? Sounds about right. Why would anybody ask Hillary Clinton to give advice to 2020 Democrat presidential candidates on how to defeat Donald Trump? Where’s the logic? TOO FUNNY!

HERE WE GO: Supreme Court Signals Support For Trump’s Citizenship Census Question

This is a big one, folks!

John Salvatore

Published

It is looking more and more likely that the Supreme Court will allow the citizenship question to be added to the 2020 census. Democrats are likely to erupt, while conservatives will stand and clap. Here’s more information about what’s going down, from Bloomberg: Key U.S. Supreme Court justices seemed inclined to let the Trump administration add a question about citizenship to the 2020 census in a clash that will shape the allocation of congressional seats and federal dollars. In an 80-minute argument Tuesday that was both technical and combative, Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh directed almost all their questions to the lawyers challenging the decision to ask about citizenship. Kavanaugh said Congress gave the Commerce secretary “huge discretion” to decide what to ask on the census. Opponents say a citizenship question could result in a census undercount in areas with large non-citizen populations that could shift congressional districts and federal funds away from those communities. Far-left Justice Sonia Sotomayor noted, “There’s no doubt that people will respond less. That’s been proven in study after study.” Stay tuned… As most conservatives are well aware, Obamacare was unconstitutional from the start considering it originated in the Senate. Now, an appeals court has ruled in the Trump administration’s favor on a major issue. What this means is the Supreme Court may wind up ruling on the Redistribution of Wealth Act’s Affordable Care Act’s legality before the 2020 presidential election. In other words, it’s kind of a big deal. https://twitter.com/CNNPolitics/status/1116474275999956992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1116474275999956992&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-trump-just-put-the-lawsuit-against-obamacare-on-speed%2F One woman was rumored to be in the running for the SCOTUS seat that went to Brett Kavanaugh. As it stands, President Trump has nominated two judges to the Supreme Court, both of whom made it through the entire process – Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch. Now, if Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat…
