The Unconstitutional National Emergency Farce

If Donald Trump wants a wall on the border, maybe he can ask Sheldon Adelson to chip in to pay for it. Adelson knows all about walls. His people in Israel built one to keep the Palestinians in their ghettos. 

If the corporate news can be believed, Trump will take relief money earmarked for Puerto Rico and Texas to build his wall. 

It’s all ego at this point. Trump has been humiliated by his inability to get a wall. It’s personal for him. Trump’s not concerned about a few billion dollars spent on a bad idea that will do little to stop illegal immigration. 

Walls don’t stop people. Ask the families of East Germans shot dead trying to scale the Berlin Wall. 

If the US didn’t muck around in Central and South America, supporting tyrants and training deaths squads to make investment safe for international banks and transnational corporations, there wouldn’t be mass migration of refugees fleeing US foreign policy.

If the state hadn’t declared a war on drugs—these guys love wars of all stripe—there wouldn’t be murderous cartels, first in Colombia, and now in Mexico. Drug money floats economies, including ours. Wakovia and other banks have made a fortune laundering drug money. Obama supported the Sinaloa cartel and played it off against its rivals, going so far as sending arms to narco terrorists. 

Trump’s mulling of a “national emergency” (the pretext set with 9/11) isn’t included in the Constitution. It is an outrageous expansion of the imperial presidency.

There isn’t a crisis on the border—the murder rate here is much lower than say in Chicago or Baltimore—a fact I am able to confirm. I live forty miles from Mexico. 

The argument for a wall is quite frankly bullshit. It was a selling point during the presidential campaign. It is now a battle to save face and elevate Trump’s personality. There are several more pressing issues—namely: illegal wars, a bankster manipulated monetary system, and a national debt that will flatten the country… and sooner before later. 

Let’s see if Trump declares a national emergency—despite there not being an actual crisis or emergency—and let’s see what else he does with this awesome and illegal authority. 

I fear a bit of Caliguia in Donald Trump.

  1. This reveals the real farce of the D.C. Swamp.

    October 23, 2014 Special report: America’s perpetual state of emergency

    WASHINGTON — The United States is in a perpetual state of national emergency. Thirty separate emergencies, in fact. An emergency declared by President Jimmy Carter on the 10th day of the Iranian hostage crisis in 1979 remains in effect almost 35 years later.

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2014/10/22/president-obama-states-of-emergency/16851775/?AID=10709313&PID=6157437&SID=1n1hxqehvn9oa

  2. I’ve read a lot of postings, some good some bad, but this is the most idiotic posting I’ve read yet!
    We must have a border wall for many reasons: Crime, Disease, protecting the U.S. job market from unskilled imported labor that competes with our workers for the few existing jobs and then there are the infiltrators from Isis and others groups that wish to do us harm. We made the mistake of letting people into the U.S. who do not wish to assimilate, but wish to take over our Country by promote their beliefs and customs in OUR COUNTRY!
    We need to have a clause that says anyone who does not assimilate will be sent back to their country of origin!

  3. With respect, Kurt.

    I won’t argue that declaring an emergency is necessarily a good idea. But the democrats have become so disgusting since Obama’s reign, that it has become unbearable.

    I was born in California in 1963, since then my home state has become a complete disaster. I could sight several examples of how illegal immigration from south of the border has destroyed California through job losses, especially in construction and warehouse jobs, and housing prices and civic/social decay.

    Again I won’t get into all of the facts, figures and the many aspects that very few people ever address, that would require a lengthy article.

    As one example, the city of San Fernando is about 90% illegal immigrants from south of the border. It is a sight to be seen, really, one wouldn’t even recognize it as an American city. It looks like Venezuela or some such catastrophe. Again, I won’t elaborate here.

    There has been an immigration crisis in California since the 1980’s. And now California is lost. It is truly a festering s-hole and a pathetic banana republic.

    And has left me quite depressed.

  4. Wow.
    Trolls here too. Mr. Rick appears to favor a wall with powerful UV lights to protect us from bacteria (sorry Rick, virii & fungi gonna make it thru). And employer enforcement, not a border wall is the direct way of dealing with immigrants —who by & large go past border fences legally…. “Stealing our jobs is a racist-parodied South Park refrain.

    Then Mr. ‘M’ Fernando, with respect :
    Last time I was in San Fernando, there were like Taco Bell & McDonalds & cars driving thru there drive thru’s. C-stores were really well stocked or so it seems to me. I’m not sure what his definition of an “American city” actually is.

    It’s amazing that a “festering… pathetic Banana Republic” can patch miles of road (PCH) which literally fell into the sea. I’m openly suggesting here that Mr. Fernando, all due respect, isn’t even an American citizen.

    So back to my point—how to be troll-free: have no opinions. Refuse “biblical truths” not enumerated by Joel Ornstein or the prosperity preachers on late night TV. Drink the Kool-Aid. Red40 is so healthy the “Gipper” Reagan signed an executive order….

    We can’t even have “alternative news” now unless they give the Q-spiracy at least a nod & wink. (Sorry Alex Jones, if not the Kool-Aid at least the Red40).

    This country’s gone. Folks turning national parks into anything goes playgrounds because the rangers are furloughed. But that’s to be expected all these “illegals” running amok. & ISIS OMG they might open fire in a bar or from a balcony overlooking a full concert.

    We are our own worst enemies. Maybe we could build a wall of drive-thru screens with Bluetooth speakers (encrypted of course for copyright protection) & do the drive-thru movie thing just like they did when US America was great. Right?
    Right.

  5. First off, the americans need both, or all of the below:
    – Wall that is actually manned 24/7, with machine guns or such, like the Mexican border.
    – Welfare that is ACTUALLY only benefiting to legal WHITE NON-HISPANIC citizen, complete with DNA test.
    – Employer penalty and punishment for EMPLOYING ILLEGAL.
    – Immediate, no question asked deportation of illegal immigrant or any “legal” immigrant with suspicious document or dangerous home countries (coming from Israel, any muslim country, India, China, Africa and many more).
    – Strict and PROPERLY ENFORCED Switzerland and/or Japan tier, immigration policy.

    Only with those 03 policies, America has a chance of surviving. The idea that there’s no border crisis is frankly bullshit, Mr. Kurt, do you know why Chicago is a sh*thole? Or why California is a sh*thole? Leftists and communist aside, it is the LARGEST gathering of illegal immigrants from Central America or “spics” that I would like to call them. The fact you can see the crime crisis in Chicago but not seeing the cause from the border astounds me.

    And QUIT THAT BULLSHIT TALK ABOUT PAYING FOR THE SINS IN SOUTH/CENTRAL AMERICA! You know what else countries have America messed with over the years? Germany, Serbia, South Africa, Rhodesia, even Ukraine, do you see America getting MILLIONS of refugees from those places? Well do you?

    You don’t! Because you are supposed to get the dirtiest, smelliest refugees from sh*tholes countries, the white refugees aren’t even allowed to migrate! You are supposed to be ethnic replaced and you must feel guilty about it.

    So quit that white guilt charade and freaking get your sh*t together. The fake right wing start war so that the left wing can ship for non-white immigrants, both that you have to pay for. It’s a scheme to destroy you and your country, both racially/ethnically and financially.

    And for your information, walls do work:
    – Your Berlin wall example, actually the manned Berlin fence with machine gun STOPPED millions of germans trying to run away from their regime.
    – The hated Israeli wall also works, that’s why they prevent other countries from building it. That wall is why the palestinian cannot get in as they please.
