Just the start.

Well, it finally happened. President Trump declared a national emergency at the southern border, just as he said he would.

Now, the House Judiciary Committee has decided to open an investigation into the legitimacy of the emergency.

Rest assured, though.

Trump was well within his right as president to make such a move.

From Washington Examiner:

The House Judiciary Committee will investigate President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the border, citing his statement Friday, “I didn’t need to do this, but I would rather do it much faster.”

Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and fellow Democrats have requested a hearing with Department of Justice officials and White House counsel, writing in a letter to the president, “We believe your declaration of an emergency shows a reckless disregard for the separation of powers and your own responsibilities under our constitutional system.”

“The House Judiciary Committee is commencing an immediate investigation into this matter, which raises both serious constitutional and statutory issues,” the letter signed by Nadler and six other House Democrats said.

The ACLU has declared that they will also challenge the declaration, per Daily Wire:

Following Trump’s Rose Garden announcement, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) wasted little time in announcing its plan to sue the Trump Administration. The ACLU press release reads, in relevant part:

The ACLU will argue that President Trump’s use of emergency powers to evade Congressional funding restrictions is unprecedented and that 10 U.S.C. § 2808, the emergency power that Trump has invoked, cannot be used to build a border wall. Congress restricted the use of that power to military construction projects, like overseas military airfields in wartime, that “are necessary to support” the emergency use of armed forces.

Many conservative legal scholars disagree with the ACLU’s analysis. In particular, John Eastman of the Claremont Institute and John Yoo of Berkeley Law and the American Enterprise Institute, each of whom formerly clerked on the U.S. Supreme Court for Justice Clarence Thomas, have both expressed their belief that President Trump’s national emergency is being enacted declared pursuant to Congress’s delegated statutory authority. There is also the separate threshold question as to whether the ACLU would even have proper standing to sue, under Article III of the U.S. Constitution.

On Tuesday evening, Trump sent a tweet saying he’s getting $23 billion for “border security.”

That’s close to five times more than the original $5.7 billion asking price.

Was just presented the concept and parameters of the Border Security Deal by hard working Senator Richard Shelby. Looking over all aspects knowing that this will be hooked up with lots of money from other sources….

….Will be getting almost $23 BILLION for Border Security. Regardless of Wall money, it is being built as we speak!

Trump is getting things done for the American people, day after day, month after month.

It’s too bad that some people can’t realize that.

Washington Democrat Rep. Pramila Jayapal wants America to pay “reparations” to border crossers.

Confirmed: AOC, Ilhan Omar & Rashida Tlaib Will Officially Endorse Bernie Sanders for President

Makes you wonder what cabinet positions they might’ve been promised…

Omar, Tlaib, and Ocasio-Cortez. Without question, three of the very [insert word here] people to become members of Congress in quite some time. The rookie lawmakers are the most prominent members of “The Squad” and constantly find themselves in trouble for saying and doing silly things, but you already knew that. In a surprise to literally no person on planet earth, all three Democrat Socialists will endorse Bernie Sanders for president. Not Warren. Not Biden. Not Booker or Buttigieg or Gabbard or whoever else. They’re going with their fellow Democrat Socialist. Might Democrats say they’re acting, I don’t know…sexist!? by choosing a man over a woman? Look out for it! Even though this announcement is likely to get plenty of airtime from far-left networks, it should do little to move the needle in Bernie’s favor – at least if it comes down to a general election battle between Sanders and Trump. Think about this, though…what cabinet positions were Tlaib, Omar, and AOC promised if Bernie wins? Scary thought, right? From Fox News: Fox News has learned that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., will appear with Sanders on Saturday in Queens, N.Y., at a “Bernie’s Back” rally designed to generate excitement for the senator’s campaign following his recent heart procedure. Rep. Ihan Omar, D-Minn., will also endorse the candidate, Fox News confirmed. New: Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib will also endorse Sanders, according to source. AOC will, as @daveweigel and @WaPoSean first reported, will do the same on Saturday in NYC. https://twitter.com/GregJKrieg/status/1184303508188794880?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Focasio-cortez-omar-tlaib-reportedly-will-endorse-bernie-sanders As if everything they’ve said about Israel wasn’t bad enough, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib decided to take things a full step further. It’s pretty bad. And yet, nobody in the mainstream media will say a word – neither will any of their liberal colleagues. LOOK: Oof. Looks like both…

Pelosi Makes It Clear: Democrats Will Not Hold Vote On Impeachment Inquiry Into Trump

Game over?

John Salvatore

Published

It’s all over, folks. Democrats, once again, thought they had President Trump caught between a rock and a hard place. And yet, once again, Democrats didn’t do their homework before pulling the trigger. Go figure, huh? With all these absolutely phony, made-up “get Trump” tactics the left has pulled, you’d think they’d have scored on at least one attempt. But nope. They’re still swingin’ for the fences and striking out like they’re wearing blindfolds when they step up to the plate. On Tuesday evening, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) made it clear that her far-left party would not proceed with a vote on an impeachment inquiry. The reason, even though they won’t admit it, is because they have nothing to go on. Not a single thing. It’s just too bad the uninformed and the mainstream media kept goading liberals into thinking there was a chance. But no dice! CONFIRMED: Pelosi informs caucus there will NOT be a formal floor vote to launch the impeachment inquiry https://twitter.com/scottwongDC/status/1184240274417041408?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1184240274417041408&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fjust-in-pelosi-says-no-impeachment-vote%2F Schiff says Republicans “have completely been represented” in these closed-door depositions. They have attended and ask questions. “There is full participation by the GOP” He says that he anticipates releasing transcripts https://twitter.com/scottwongDC/status/1184246948808802306 From Fox News: The move was seemingly a boon for moderate Democrats in swing districts, who have been reluctant to have a formal vote in favor of the proceedings as the 2020 elections approach — even as several of them have also sought to appease liberal constituents by vocally backing the ongoing inquiry. A congressional aide familiar with House Democrats’ discussions told Fox News that many House Democrats did not want to be seen as letting the White House dictate how the House conducted itself. Last week, the White House sent a fiery letter to House Democrats announcing that it would not cooperate…
