BREAKING: Trump overrules Congress, issues his first VETO!

Trump has just vetoed his first bill ever as president, overruling the Congress who sent him a disapproval resolution of his national emergency to his desk:






 
Here’s more from the WSJ:

President Trump on Friday vetoed a congressional resolution disapproving of his national-emergency declaration, asserting his authority to tap funding for barriers on the southern border even though the money hadn’t been appropriated by lawmakers.

“Today I am vetoing this resolution,” Mr. Trump said at an Oval Office event before signing the veto to applause. He was flanked by Vice President Mike Pence, law-enforcement officials and parents of children who were allegedly killed by immigrants in the U.S. illegally.

“Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution, and I have the duty to veto it,” he said, before calling the resolution “dangerous” and “reckless.”

The veto will be the first of Mr. Trump’s presidency, and lawmakers face a tall order in overriding it, which would require a two-thirds majority in each chamber of Congress. Democratic leaders in the House are planning a vote this month, and the initiative still faces legal and other challenges.

Even though the House will vote later this month on overriding Trump’s veto, it’s highly unlikely they’ll be able to do so.

Even if they do, the Senate is still 8 votes short of the number it would take to override the veto.

And that’s only if McConnell allows it to come up for a vote, which I believe is totally up to him this time.

So as we’ve predicted all along, Trump’s national emergency will continue unabated unless the courts step in to overrule him.

How can anyone, especially a republican, look the angel parents in the eyes and say, “No, we don’t want Trump to secure the border…we’re afraid Democrats might misuse this law (they have already) so we’re going vote against something really important and your child’s death will be in vain.” Angel mom Mary Ann Mendoza spoke directly to the cameras, then as she concluded turned to the president to thank him and shake his hand for keeping his promises: “Angel families come forward to tell their stories not because we’ve created a manufactured crisis, but because we want to tell the American people and share with you our heartache and let you know what is happening on our doorsteps, what’s happening to your neighbors, what’s happening to your fellow Americans, and there is a way to prevent this and it’s not by continually lying to you and telling you that there… Read more »

They can do it because they are liars and hypocrites. They were silent when Obama the Terrible abused executive power. DACA anyone? They hypocrisy is astounding. If they wanted to reign in executive power, then they should have backed Mike Lee’s bill about it and SUPPORTED the current border wall emergency declaration. What a bunch of buffoons!

So, according to this article-

https://bigleaguepolitics.com/nancy-pelosi-plans-vote-to-override-trumps-veto-and-stop-national-emergency/

Piglosi made a statement less than an hour after Trump vetoed the resolution, she is scheduling an override vote in the House on March 26. She said she believes she has the votes, but it is going to take her 11 days in order to buy enough R’s to help her out. Because the feckless R’s in the Senate numbers added votes to get to 59 to vote for the resolution, and I’m not sure what happened with Thong Tillis, I fear they may accomplish the override.

I believe it takes 2/3 of both the senate and 2/3 of the house to override the veto.

If all 100 members of the Senate voted then they would have to have 67 senators to vote to override the President’s veto. They would have to pick up 8 republican senators. I don’t see that happening.

In the House they would have to have 290 votes to override the veto. It looks as though Pelosi would have to convince 45 House members to change their vote. That seems like a monumental task.

Pres Trump protects and defends America, our National Sovereignty and Security against all enemies Foreign and Domestic, with not just words, but actions !

The time for voting out, primarying these Trump hating, anti-Conservative Lincoln Republican-Bush McCain McConnell McCarthy DC Globalist Leftist RINOs in the Senate is long past due !!

The only pass I give is to Rand Paul as a Libertarian of consistent principles, he has always voted, taking this position against Obama, as well as Trump. Not that I agree with him in this case, but he is at least holding a consistent line of principle.

All others are and must be targeted for GOP primary defeat !!

It’s nice that Trump supporters have something to hang their hats on. Trump has had a terrible past two months, having caved to Pelosi on the shut down, signed a bad spending bill, and had a lousy Summit with Kim Jong-un. Hopefully he will actually follow through on the national border wall emergency and not let the judiciary tie him up like a wuss.

Hey, WSJ reporters: Yes, the money was appropriated. It was appropriated to areas of the budget where the Executive has discretion on use. Not only that, but additional appropriation discretion is granted to the Executive under both the 1976 National Emergencies Act, AND The 1982 Military Construction Codification Act, as Mark Levin explained Wednesday. Trump haters don’t seem to understand appropriations. Whether it’s your former step dad giving you an allowance, or you’re a head of a division of a corporation, or your the head of a governmental department, “allocations” are the release of funds for you to use as intended. But you still have discretion over the actual spending. This should be obvious. The allocating agency decides broadly. The executing… Read more »

AvatarK-Bob Well Put K-Bob. I think back to over the years since Reagan’s amnesty in 1986 and the promise by Democrats to fund and build a border wall. How many times were things passed to move the wall/border security forward, and then nothing ever done?

It’s about time we have a President who is trying to actually accomplish something at the border. This has been going on for over 30 years and these hack politicians just keep ignoring the will of the people they serve.

To be honest, it shows that they are not serious about the country’s security, only their own power and re-election to keep the money flowing their way. We really need a Convention of States so we can at least enact term limits and get a balanced budget. I believe that would help turn this country around.

Sigh. Again with the focus solely on ends and not on the means.

I would bet every dollar I have that Mike Lee knew this would pass and that Donnie would veto it. The point Mike Lee was making, I think, was that this is the wrong way to accomplish this goal. It’s legal, yes. It’s necessary, yes. It will benefit America, yes.

It’s still the wrong way to do it.

I champion the Conservatives who had the guts to go on record against this. They knew they’d lose, and they knew it’d cost them friends on the right. But they stood up for principle. They had nothing to lose politically, thanks to the guarantee of the veto, but it was important to show the American people that at least one man in Congress still knows that that the ends don’t justify the means.

Well, we have to agree to disagree. Like I said before, this was the wrong way for these spineless “principled” “Conservatives” to change the law. Let me ask you this, if you drive exactly the posted speed limit, are you saying, it’s the “principled” and “Conservative” thing if a cop pulls you over and gives you a speeding ticket anyways!? After all, the legislature meant for the speed limit to be 55 not 70! So take the ticket and shut up!

First of all, it’s “anyway” not “anyways.” Just a big pet peeve of mine (I’m a linguist by trade).

As for cops and speeding tickets…. buuuuddddy, that’s a road you don’t want to go down with me. Not just because it’s crazy O/T, but because there’s a huge difference between “legal” and “right.”

Ask Doc S. if you want to pursue this further. I will go for weeks on this subject. I have the endurance if you do, but just know what you’re committing to.

But, absent a cure in the legislature beforehand, I suspect the Supreme Court will rule against this use of the NEA. It was intended for when Congress can’t act, not for when they won’t. And the timing of Donald’s invoking it absolutely illustrates the latter.

It was never an emergency, at least as far as the NEA was concerned, until Donnie didn’t get his way in Congress. That is going to burn him so hard if/when it hits the courts.

The idea behind SMOD is nihilism. “People are terrible. They have to go.” – paraphrasing

I used to hear similar things from my sons while they were about 13 or 14. They’d get their fill of leftist claptrap at school, and come home hating the entire human race.

I spent hours and hours straightening them out. I think I was successful. But at some point, most people grow up and realize why “prudence” is so important to conservatives, and ignore the absolutism that drives libertarian-minded thinkers and leftists.

“President Trump on Friday vetoed a congressional resolution disapproving of his national-emergency declaration, asserting his authority to tap funding for barriers on the southern border even though the money hadn’t been appropriated by lawmakers.”
Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.
The money HAS been appropriated by lawmakers (Congress).
Per usual, FAKE NEWS ….

This will be a huge winning issue for President Trump as he seeks reelection. How can anyone defend an open border with all the crap going on down there?

MAGA!!

Question: How can President Trump be accused of ‘going around Congress’ using a statute……….passed by Congress?
