The accused gunman's manifesto praised Trump as "a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose." His bigotry is on full display today.

Once again, Trump confuses "duty" with "desire."
Or "doodie"

Congress can.  But the traitorous Republican Senate won't.

Question: how the fark can the President veto a check on his power?

Is this because the implementation of the War Powers act requires the President to ratify it like any other bill?

Every breath he takes in the White House is proof that there is no deep state.

Also, evidence that we probably need a shadowy cabal of competent people running things while a failed (insert table of Trump's failed businesses)er and his craven, moronic flunkies play at being dictator.

...because only a weak majority in the Senate wish to check his power? Congress can take control and run the show whenever it wants.

Mrtraveler01: Aren't the rate of illegal crossing going down?

Worst invasion ever.


Here's what's gonna happen. As March turn to April, then to May, border crossings will fall. Not because of anything he's done, but because people dont want to die in the desert when its 110 out. Nevertheless he'll take credit, claiming that his resolution has worked.

And the worthless moronic trash will cheer for this power grab right up until the Dems do the same thing. And if the Dems don't use emergency powers to steamroll over the GOP and teach them a lesson, then we may as well hand the country to them. These stupid dumb animals won't ever learn until someone rubs their noses in their own shiat and beats them with a newspaper.

President can veto anything Congress passes. Congress can then overturn the veto with 2/3 majority in both houses of Congress. That won't happen in this case because the House GOP only voted for the bill because they were counting on the veto, and the Senate GOP is a who's who of America's worst corporate villains of the 21st century.

It is such bullsh*t that the executive branch can suggest a course of action, and then have that slapped down by the legislative, and then get to veto their decision. This sort of tit-for-tat is inanity disguised as government.

Work something out, Master Negotiator. Make a deal, oh most artful one.

Not if Pelosi keeps bringing up that bill for a vote. It then goes to the Senate, which is forced to vote on it, and then 45 vetoes it. And then Pelosi brings it up again. And the Senate passes it, maybe with more regressives on board this time. And 45 vetoes it. And so on, and so on, until it reaches a veto-proof majority.

Best part: regressives have to go on record over and over about whether or not they will let the russian pressident commit unconstiutional acts.

Congress can.  But the traitorous Republican Senate won't.


The House needs 290 votes to override, which equates to 65 even more batshiat-crazy Repubs siding with the Dems...aka I have a better chance of sleeping with Jennifer Lawrence.

Commander Lysdexic: So now he knows that as long as 1/3rd of Congress refuses to oppose him, he can do anything he wants.


Just 1/6th.  Both House and Senate need to override, so 1/3 of one chamber is needed.

Trump is showing us that we elect a tyrant as long as he has the support of 34 or more Senators.  I'd recognized this years ago.

Bullshiat. It looks like an "invasion" to the fearful and the haters. To everybody else, it is just business-as-usual, and that includes the Republicans who hire the illegals because they are cheap, demand no rights and no benefits, and can be discarded once sucked dry. You know "patriotic legitimate business people".

In France, they did a study in a small town that votes LePen (((Nationalist Socialist))) back when the old chicken-hawk was the leader and not his tasty blonde daughter. In a town where 7% of the population or so was "foreign", which is to say visible minorities, the LePenistas guessed "70%". Because that was the invasion they saw, not the real world. The rules of human psychology are very much the same everywhere and in all times, but when a fascist or reactionary is in charge, two or three gathered together in Christ's name can look like a Radical Islamist Mosque.

Next time you worry about the border, remember that Mexicans are over-whelming lapsed or practicing RC not radical Muslim.

Bernie won't be issuing that order.

He'll still be in the Senate.

Full circle fascism has arrived today.
President issues an Emergency;
Senate vetos the Emergency;
President vetos Senates veto;
Ergo, president can issue any order and disregard any checks on power.

I think USA is in real trouble. I think the trouble is about to become forefront issue. I only wonder how long until Americans stop, take a pause and do something about their calamity.

Those illegals make hotels and restaurants cheap enough for the masses and cheaper for the classes.

Every illegal worker boosts the economy rather than sucks up the benefits reserved largely to the white entitled and maybe some of the non-white in Democratic jurisdictions, aka sanctuary cities and counties.

Fools! Scoundrels! Red State and Blue State Meanies!
