It's not really a matter of whether people are here legally or not, but rather reestablishing the white dominance in the power chain. There truly are people out there worried about losing their position of power based on their skin color. That is the bottom line.
As stated before, a national emergency is dependent on our government officials who determine if it is or not. Second, that means higher-ranking officials...can override an inferior-ranking officials interpretation. Third, that would mean the President has the exclusive right to determine what is and what is not a national emergency...by de facto...he is the President.

You throw this white supremacy phrases out there like it's saying "have a nice day". Overuse of such a term, is no wonder your complaints are falling on deaf ears, even within your own party.

I'll tell you what is happening everywhere and it has nothing to do with skin color. If you work for a company (Black, White, Brown) and you're not with the proper political party, you're harassed and even terminated from your job or forced to resign due to so much pressure from your coworkers. This is especially rampant in Liberal-dominated cities, and those cities are quite large. So, if you want to talk about national emergencies, I'd say that is one right in front of our faces. If you do not believe it is...why should I believe your emergency.

Sure, there are many people worried about their jobs, but it's a lot more than just only one specific issue you keep bringing up. To think there are not other serious issues in this nation, is being willfully naive.

If you want to start a war on Whites, start with your own party. There's a lot of them in power that will NEVER give their power to anyone else. I bet that's a chunky beefy hearty stone to swallow, but you're going to have to grow up and realize it eventually. It's not Republicans...it's your own party.

You lost me on 99% of what you said. But if I follow your logic, your saying POTUS can declare a Nationals Emergency in whatever they want. Correct? So if you support Trump deflating a NE for the wall, you would support a Democratic POTUS declaring a NE on healthcare and putting in place a single payer system?

Hell im for a single payer system and I don’t agree a single person should have the authority to do it. Even if the “ends justify the means”. That’s a scary amount of unchecked power you are advocating.

I'm half hoping the shitstain does it just for that reason. Once the Dems are in office, maybe healthcare, gun control, and climate change will be appropriately addressed.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

It will be interesting if Trump declares a NE for the wall funding. Getting his wall money that way seems like a clear end run on the Constitution.

Good news! We've reached the end of Trump's presidency and the end of the GOP. Go to 4:05.

Really? Republicans are being fired for being Republicans, and Democrats for being Democrats? And it's happening everywhere, but mostly in large liberal cities? And it's "rampant"? Do you have any sources on any of that? I haven't heard of it, especially at the "rampant" level.

Let him build the wall and as soon as a new President is elected then he can have it torn down.

I realize you said “half hope”. And I agree with you and your note of “appropriately”.

But I cant meet you all the way. To even suggest that POTUS can do an obvious end around Congress means talking about the end of democracy as we know it. I don’t want that.

The system does work work when the appropriate people are working it. But it’s “clitchy” when there is not a common understanding.

I was being facetious (especially using the term "appropriately"). I absolutely do not want this to happen because of the repercussions that could/will follow in future administrations (hence my facetiousness).

Are you trying to make some really obscure point that even you don't understand, or are you just blatantly lying?

I have to assume both.

Live in DC (well, Arlington VA - as liberal as it gets), the most liberal city of all. Work in DC and call absolute bullshit on this. Get out of your hole

And I'm no Democrat.

I can see certain work environments having problems with political discourse. My shop is mixed. One employee kind of reminds me of DP. But it’s pretty easy to get past in real life.

Yea. Surfing on this place on my cell phone has made me really lazy with initials.

Politics stiffles productivity (both in a business and nationally). Good management doesn’t let it happen.

He doesn't have any sources because it's made up bullshit. Not to mention illegal. If the evidence exists, then same evidence is available to those fired in their discrimination/wrongful termination lawsuits.
