To watch click here: https://twitter.com/WhiteHouse/status/1096432588925759488 Bush and Obama used emergency declarations to reprogram appropriations 18 times between 2001 and 2013, yet the republic survived. The NeverTrump Resistance’s perpetual hysteria is matched only by its utter ignorance of history.
Trump Is Right Again… Obama Declared 13 National Emergencies – 11 Are Still Active 50 State Report ^ | January 10, 2019 | Staff

If the federal courts actually follow the law, President Trump cannot be prevented from “reprogramming” funds appropriated for the U.S. Department of Defense and actually using the military (such as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) to build the border wall.
Congress has given a president the power to declare a national emergency by 50 U.S.C. 1621 and 50 U.S.C. 1622. A declaration of an emergency allows the President to reprogram funds in the military budget. See 33 U.S. Code § 2293 “Reprogramming during national emergencies.”

Barack Obama declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day.
The Obama emergencies included the Swine Flu, Flint water crisis and Iran.
The Conservative Tribune reported:
As it turns out, there are currently 31 ongoing national emergencies over which the president wields certain authorities, the first of which has been in existence since 1979 and is one of only two emergencies declared by Carter. There were a total of six national emergencies during former President Ronald Reagan’s tenure, as well as four more during the administration of former President George H.W. Bush, all of which have ended. Former President Bill Clinton declared 17 national emergencies — six of which remain in effect — while former President George W. Bush declared 12 national emergencies, of which 10 remain ongoing. Then we get to former President Barack Obama, who declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. Thus far, President Trump has declared three active and ongoing national emergencies.
Clinton Foundation and Cartels and the Wall
We know that a big time lawyer for the Mexican cartels donated to Hillary Clinton. We also know that it was reported that Julian Assange reported that he had evidence that the Clinton Foundation received $15 million from the Mexican cartels. On 9 January 2017, the web site Times.com.mx published an article reporting that Mexican Drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán had donated millions of dollars to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, claiming that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange had broken the news.
Don’t forget el chapo donated 15 million ( that we know about) to the Clinton cartel foundation before his transfer to the US — rahm (@alongadingdong) January 27, 2019
Now this – Yesterday’s bill approved by Congress (the House is run by Democrats) and presented to President Trump includes wording that prevents the wall being built in areas where the cartels are prominent.
A key provision in the spending bill being presented to President Trump for signing stipulates that the federal government give specific Texas border counties the opportunity to derail any efforts to build barriers, fencing, or walls by simply opposing the construction of the border security measures–but many of the specified counties have a long and recent history of top officials taking bribes from the Mexican Gulf Cartel. Ultimately, the bill allows county offices with historic ties to the Gulf Cartel to stop U.S. border barriers from being constructed in the region. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/02/yesterdays-democrat-sponsored-spending-bill-supports-theory-that-democrats-are-on-side-of-drug-cartels/
The National Emergency authority goes well beyond the narrow issue of building a wall. This will also allow Trump to overrule the nonsense in the appropriations bill that will pass today. The restrictions and limitations of that action will only apply to the monies appropriated by that bill which is only for the next 7 months. Trump can easy get around those restrictions by reprogramming other funds. The Democrats and the media will squeal like stuck pigs, but Trump but will be able to, you know, trump them.
Remain Calm And Trust in Trump
.@PressSec: President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action—including a national emergency—to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border.

President Trump will take dramatic actions to fund his long-promised border wall and declare a national emergency, which will enable his administration to move $8 billion from various federal agencies to fund the project, a senior administration official told Fox News late Thursday.
The news comes as Trump is expected to sign a House border security package that provides $1.4 billion for the project, which is far below the $5.7 billion Trump insisted he needed and would finance just a quarter of the 200-plus miles he wanted.
Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, said earlier today that Trump will sign the spending bill and declare a national emergency at the same time tomorrow morning.
The White House said he’d sign the legislation but act unilaterally to get more, prompting condemnations from Democrats and threats of lawsuits from states and others who might lose federal money or said Trump was abusing his authority.

Democrat Beto O'Rourke says he wants to knock down the existing border barriers on the southern border
MSNBC's Chris Hayes: "If you could, would you take the wall down now? Knock it down?"
O'Rourke: "Yes, absolutely. I would take the wall down.”
Ocasio-Cartez wants to ban air travel, build bridges to Europe and annihilate the US energy sector, but securing the border is a bad thing.
.@JoaquinCastrotx and I aren’t going to let the President declare a fake national emergency without a fight. https://t.co/iPlcVVsm6U — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) February 15, 2019
Ocasio-Cortez promises to fight President Trump on his emergency declaration.
President Donald Trump said on Friday that he is expecting the Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit to block his emergency declaration to build the wall — but that he will take it to the Supreme Court where he believes that he will win.
While the president was open about expecting to be sued for the National Emergency, he said that he believes the declaration will “get a fair shake” in the Supreme Court.
“We will possibly get a bad ruling, and then we’ll get another bad ruling and then we’ll end up in the Supreme Court,” Trump said during a press conference at the White House.
When asked by Acosta about what he would say to critics that believe he is “concocting a national emergency” to build the wall — the president turned to the Angel Moms (women whose children have been murdered by illegal aliens) to let them answer him.
President Trump clashes with CNN journalist…again. Jim Acosta says critics would say Trump is "creating a national emergency", to which the president replies "fake news".

“What do you say to your critics who say that you are creating a national emergency, that you’re concocting a national emergency here in order to get your wall?” Acosta asked.
“I’ll ask the angel moms — what do you think, do you think I’m creating something?” President Trump responded.
“Ask these incredible women who lost their daughters and their sons,” Trump added.
One of the Angel Moms could be heard responding and saying, “this is real.”

“Your question is a very political question, because you have an agenda,” Trump concluded. “You’re CNN, you’re fake news. You have an agenda.”

Networks: 2,202 Minutes on Russia Scandal, Zero for No Collusion Report
It’s been two days since NBC’s exclusive reporting that the Senate Intelligence Committee has found no material evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, and as of yet none of the three major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) have given it even a single second of coverage in their evening newscasts. Considering these networks have given the Russia probe a massive 2,202 minutes of airtime, their silence on this major development is deafening. https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/bill-dagostino/2019/02/14/networks-2202-minutes-russia-scandal-zero-no-collusion-report
Groundbreaking victory for animals in the United States and across the world, the “Dog and Cat Meat Prohibition Act” was signed into law by President Trump as a provision of the Farm Bill. The bill was spearheaded and sponsored by the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation (AHWF), a nonprofit that rescues dogs and cats from the dog and cat meat trade abroad.
The Act makes it a federal offense to slaughter, trade and import/export dogs and cats for human consumption, a practice that was previously legal in 44 states.
While the practice is uncommon in America, a number of recent cases were discovered in Hawaii, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and New York. Many of these dogs and cats were taken from shelters, some found as strays, others were stolen pets from families. While the ban on dog and cat meat consumption only applies to the practice within the United States,
