The only emergency is the threat to the #Constitution, the #SeparationofPowers and the #RuleofLaw posed by this so called @POTUS. A sniveling, narcissistic, manchild and wannabe Dictator.

2/ Most Americans, sadly, don't seem to see what's happening here. It's no longer about "Politics" as he's so skillfully framed it. It's about the US Constitution and something called #SeparationofPowers. The Senate #Republicans finally slapped his hand.

3/ But his inevitable Veto of the measure and the Senate's inability (or unwillingness) to override that veto is just one more huge step towards #Authoritarianism. You see Congress controlling the "Power of the Purse" is just one way to keep a Dictator president in check.

Today we’re voting on whether @POTUS can bypass Congress and trample on our Constitution so he can steal money from the military & use eminent domain to waste billions of dollars on a medieval wall.

A wall he promised Mexico would pay for.
Watch Live: On the Senate floor speaking out against @POTUS’ national emergency declaration → facebook.com/senbennetco/vi…
So, how did we get here?

- Trump said Mexico would pay for his wall (they refused)
- GOP Senate & House refused to fund wall, so instead gave $1.3B for fencing (which Trump hasn’t spent)
- Trump made the wall his #1 issue in midterm election (GOP lost 40 House seats)

We decided to take a look at the accounts retweeting the 2020 Democratic primary contenders, beginning with @TulsiGabbard. We examined retweets of Gabbard's tweets from 2/13 through 2/23, and found 21860 accounts that retweeted her in that timespan.

We downloaded the profile information as well as the most recent 200 tweets from each account that recently retweeted Gabbard. This chart shows the primary languages the accounts use. 92% are in English; Spanish and Hindi are a small but notable portion.
Here are the hashtags most frequently used by accounts that retweet @TulsiGabbard. There's some interesting variety here: #GreenNewDeal and #MAGA both turn up, along with #GiletsJaunes/#YellowVests and various Venezuela, India, and Syria-related hashtags.

Why have a Congress if the President can declare a 'National Emergency' to override its legislative authority? Does this not make us a dictatorship....or an autocracy?

Yes, National Emergencies have been declared in the past and 31 are still in effect; 1/7 #FakeTrumpEmergency
Only twice have Presidents spent money without legislative approval and both were for NEW events, not existing situations where Congress wouldn't give them what they wanted. By the way, the Presidents were George H.W. Bush (Iraq invasion of Kuwait) & George W. Bush (9/11). 2/7
NEVER has a President declared a National Emergency & taken funds from other projects because they were told, "No."

The dangers if Trump gets his way:

1. A precedent will be set that the President has unlimited powers, superseding what the American people want.

Woke up about a 2hrs plus ago. I need to drop this tweet, lest I forget. This tweet is a 10 step process if you will, on how to avoid infights.

We've seen it's a particular group of people that are causing all these MAJOR infights. Shall we begin then 😊 👇*RESPECT my TL.*
1. (There's always two sides)

There's 2 sides to a book, in rare case more 😉 if you see two Resisters fighting, regardless the number of follows they command don't ever get involved. Ignore them if you will or mute them if it continues, you're here to Resist & that is all.
2. (Screenshots are not always what they seem to be)

Similar to number 1. SS may appear to portray one person as a very deceitful individual. We all know in a "fit of rage" we tend to say hurtful things that might be detrimental to our cause. Avoid getting angry at all cost.

@realDonaldTrump So the Sitting President of the United States just encouraged “retribution” on

Saturday Night Live-- a Satirical Sketch Comedy Show…

Just in case anyone was wondering…

👏 THIS 👏 IS 👏 NOT 👏 NORMAL.

@realDonaldTrump TBH, I'm not sure you can even call it satire anymore!

Can you really tell the difference between SNL and "President T"

Here's SNL:

"And Then I'll immediately be sued... And Then I'll Call My Buddy Kavanaugh.... He'll say new phone who Dis"

😂😂😂
@realDonaldTrump I can't spot the difference (Alec even seems slightly more articulate than Trump)

Here's President T:

"....and we will then be SUED, and they will sue us in the Ninth CIRCUIT....and then we'll end up in the Supreme COURT....just like the BAN..."

😂😂

I’m seeing a lot of Trump’s indoctrinated cult base argue on this point for a border wall:
“Do you have a fence at your house? Nancy Pelosi has one. So does Beto O’Rourke”

It reminds me of the straw-man argument trying to equate a gun to cars as a WMD.

#FakeTrumpEmergency
From a structural engineer & obvious perspective— residential fence specs are typ 4-6’ high. They’re made of wood, PVC or steel composite. I live in a suburb & have a fence. Last week, a coyote climbed over it. My dog went nuts! worse than the raccoons & rabbits that breached it.
A few mos ago, a bear crashed through our fence & 2 adjacent neighbor’s fences. Our home surveillance cameras caught it. I respectfully agreed with my neighbors—we all chipped in to get the fences fixed since we share borders. No eminent domain or political power grabs involved.

Today at our DNC winter meeting, I had some sentiments I needed to share about this #FakeTrumpEmergency. And I want to share some of my thoughts with all of you.
Donald Trump declared a national emergency on Thursday. You want to know where there’s a national emergency? We have a national emergency of gun violence. We have a national emergency on climate. We have a national emergency on voter suppression.
There’s a national emergency on health care. If you can’t afford your insulin, that’s a family emergency, a community emergency, and a national emergency.

Count the cost of every lie
Watching migrant children die
Callously we hide their tears;
Lock them up! prey on their fears

#FakeTrumpEmergency
In heileras, where they freeze
Ripped from doting families
No way to reunify!
Was there ever thought to try?

#FakeTrumpEmergency

Thousands languish, waste away
Such an awful price to pay
Government so inhumane
Why replace their dreams with pain?

As to be expected, @realDonaldTrump lied many times when trying to justify his unlawful #FakeTrumpEmergency to get his border wall.

Here are the facts on just a few of them, because no matter how often he lies, we can't ever allow these brazen lies to go unchecked. 1/
TRUMP: "They say it all comes through the port of entry. It's wrong. It's wrong. It's just a lie."

FACT: Well, per @CBP, 90% of heroin, 87% of meth, and 80% of fentanyl seizures by border officials were trying to be smuggled across the border at legal ports of entry. 2/
TRUMP: *does the El Paso lies again*

FACT: The fence at the U.S.-Mexico border at El Paso went up after decades in a decline of crime in the already-safe El Paso. In fact, crime ticked *up* just a bit in El Paso shortly after the fence was constructed. 3/

I love the idiots calling it a #FakeTrumpEmergency . Aren't you the same morons who attacked Trump for questioning the FBI/"experts"?. . The 5.7 Billion Trump wanted was a number the Border patrol suggested. The border agents agree there's a #RealEmergency, so does the DHS
As I've always said, the left/media learned long ago that when it comes to their followers, it isn't about what is actually happening, all that matters is what they tell them is happening. 99% of people will never actually go to the border and see for themselves
it's the same with everything. perfect example was the New Green Deal. when college students were asked if they supported it, they said yes, and then they were told what it actually entailed, and they immediately changed their minds. That's the root of the left's entire existence
