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.

Save conservative media!

Video: Biden Says Drunk Driving Is Not A Felony for Undocumented, Won’t Deport Because of It

He said what?

Joe Biden was speaking. Look out! Some crazy quotes are heading your way. For example, the 2020 Democrat frontrunner literally said he won’t deport illegals for drunk driving. No joke. His words. Think about that for a second. How many people have died from reckless, intoxicated drivers? Has Joe considered the fact that nobody would get hurt (or killed) by an illegal if there aren’t any illegals in the country? How can Democrats support this kind of rhetoric? Is Joe’s own family cool with this kind of talk? If so, why?

It couldn’t be more clear. With President Trump, it’s “America First.” With liberals, it’s “Anyone BUT America First.” The only reason that “America Second” was a winning strategy in 2008 and 2012 was because Barack was a minority. The left was desperate to get a black man into office, regardless of his policies. If Joe or any other Dem thinks the “America Second” strategy is going to work against Trump in 2020, well, best of luck – because it ain’t happening.

WATCH: Schiff Admits Trump’s Impeachment Is About Stopping Him From Winning Re-Election

Bing…Bang…Boom!

He admitted it, folks. The impeachment of President Donald Trump is strictly political. Of course, conservatives knew this from day one. The mainstream media has yet to catch on, but maybe now they will get a clue. Maybe. On Wednesday afternoon, radically far-left Congressman Adam Schiff said something that should end this charade once and for all. And yeah, Schiff’s words are a very big deal. From Daily Wire: House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), who is serving as a Democratic impeachment manager during President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, admitted on Wednesday that Democrats’ partisan impeachment was about stopping the president from being re-elected. Schiff said, “The House did not take this extraordinarily step lightly. As we will discuss, impeachment exists for cases in which the conduct of the president rises beyond mere policies, disputes to be decided otherwise, and without urgency at the ballot box.” He added, “Instead, we are here today to consider a much more grave matter and that is an attempt to use the powers of the presidency to cheat in an election,” Schiff continued. “For precisely this reason, the president’s misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box, for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/NewsHour/status/1220056517510156298?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220056517510156298&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fschiff-admits-in-senate-trial-that-impeachment-about-stopping-trump-re-election WATCH: Rep. Adam Schiff: “What we’ve seen here is far more serious than a third rate burglary of the Democratic headquarters.” “Where is Howard Baker?
