This #SundayMorning Trump has reiterated his threats to declare a national emergency and bypass Congress to build his border wall.

Can Trump abuse his executive powers in this way and what, if anything, can be done to stop him?

#SundayThoughts #SundayMotivation
(THREAD)
(2) First off, there are not a lot of rules about declaring national emergencies. And sadly, even in America, this executive power is rarely checked by Congress.

It's a tactic that has been used by both authoritarians and democracies around the world.
washingtonpost.com/world/2019/01/…
(3) While Trump can declare a national emergency at his discretion, he can't invoke one indefinitely without Congressional approval. And there are some limits to how this authority can be used to deploy troops & use funding.

Seven sailors found a very good day to travel, no thick cloud nor any weather problems at all, the cause of them travelling is as a result of their inability to see a person who find them attractive and charming.. #Thread #Threads #threadstorytime #eni_story
So one of them had suggested "let's go to Italy, I learnt their women are lovely and don't discriminate as they look for the inner beauty",
They all set out on this auspicious day with all hopes of finding their wives...
except one who doesn't care about finding a wife or how his look had made him unlucky in matters of the heart, they were halfway to Italy when the weather flipped in a heartbeat..

Colin Campbell, the long-time disciplinarian — now the senior executive vice-president of hockey operations with the @NHL — is shown in correspondence to term anti-violence advocates alternately as “greenpeace pukes” & “tree huggers”

#SundayMorning #SundayFunday #SundayThoughts
2/ In a 2009 email to @TSN_Sports & Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) Campbell seeks counsel in an apparent desire to help remove fighting from the game: “I hated fighting . . . had to do it though . . . particularly in the 70’s, but it is stupid.”
3/ And then, four years later, in an email to fellow TSN correspondent Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) Colin Campbell writes he is, in fact, “for fighting.”

The Fed and Jerome Powell Have Increased Annual US Debt by HALF A TRILLION DOLLARS in Interest Payments! 😡 I want the Wall for Christmas and the Fed to be ended for Easter. ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ ⁦@POTUSmarkets.businessinsider.com/news/stocks/fe…
The Fed is a private group that makes the richest 💰off the taxpayers backs &putting 🇺🇸into debt. Trump can pay off 70% of our debt by end of 2nd term by implementing this with no adverse effects to the economy with another huge cut in our taxes. #SundayMorning @realDonaldTrump
Trump could easily use an EO to remove the money power from the fed and return in its powers as intended to Congress. Do you want inflation w/ no interest attached to it? Yes! #SundayMotivation 👉🏻

2/"President Trump said he would not overrule his acting attorney general, Matthew G. Whitaker, if he decides to curtail the special counsel probe being led by Robert S. Mueller III into Russian interference in the 2016 election campaign. “Look, it’s going to be up to him . . .

TRANS AWARENESS MONTH

Today’s Thread Topic:

Binary vs. Non-Binary?

#BeyondTheBinary

Thread:
1/
First, we need to understand the concept of being “gender binary”. Simply, it means viewing gender as two opposite categories of “male” (masculine)🧔🏾& female (feminine)👩🏻‍⚕️.

But what if you don’t fit into that mold?

@TransEquality: “Non-binary” is one term people use to describe genders that don’t fall into one of these two categories, male or female.

This #SundayMorning we're asking how the Republican party, who seems to represent a minority of Americans, controls every branch of both national and a majority of state governments.

It's a tale of dysfunction, gerrymandering, corporate interests & anemic voter turnout

(THREAD)
(2) Let's start with the Presidency.

In the White House, for the 2nd time in 2 decades, sits a president who didn't win the popular vote. That's thanks to a dysfunctional, partisan electoral college that no longer functions the way the founders intended.

vox.com/policy-and-pol…
(3) The Senate also has a GOP majority, largely because the Senate is designed to weight the interests of the 40 million in CA equally with the less than one million residents of AK. The Senate by default gives the rural minority a voice in Congress.

There are precious few songwriters who have the ability to inspire millions of young kids to pick up instruments to try to figure out how to write songs 1/100000th as well as Paul Simon does.

Here he is, 1976, with George Harrison. Enjoy your #SundayMorning, y'all.
I wrote this song after 9/11.

I'd been in New York for a CD release party (remember CD's?) on 9/10/01 and took the redeye back to Seattle.

It was definitely inspired by the songwriters I grew up with, like Paul Simon. #Sundaymorning #sundaymotivation

While you're here: fewer than 1 in 5 young people voted in the last midterm elections, and less than 4 in 10 eligible voters overall.

The current government would like to keep it that way.

Register here to vote. #SundayMorning #SundayMotivation

Fox News anchors gush over Kanye West's performance at the WH.

As recently as 2017, Fox News anchors thought having rappers in the WH was an abomination.

The only difference?
The political party (and color) of the president.

The Myth of the Lazy Nonvoter

You are not resisting American fascism if:

- You believe Trump is the problem, not a symptom

- You blame the entire problem on Russia and ignore white supremacism

- Accusing people of being Russian spies w/o credentials or evidence is your new hobby

#SundayMotivation #Resist
And yes, the Russian influence campaign mattered. Yes, Russia is a threat to democracy and human rights in the world today. But Russian influence campaigns work to manipulate and exacerbate pre-existing tensions and divisions. Russia didn't create American fascism in a lab.
And remember, friends don't let friends enable Louise Mensch, Eric Garland, Jay McKenzie, and their circle of grifters and paranoid loonies. Don't. Do. It.

For the uninitiated, Letters from a Stoic is a collection of 124 letters sent by Seneca, ancient Roman philosopher to his friend, Lucilius, in around 63 AD to 65 AD.

Here is a thread on my notes and thoughts on Letter XIII - On Groundless Fears. (1/n)

#SundayMotivation
"There are more things, Lucilius, likely to frighten us than there are to crush us; we suffer more often in imagination than in reality."

We cross our bridge of worries many a times before we even come across it. And very often, this bridge doesn't even exist in reality. (2/n)
"What I advise you to do is, not to be unhappy before the crisis comes; since it may be that the dangers before which you paled as if they were threatening you, will never come upon you."

Don't suffer unduly in your mind even before the event. The event might not happen. (3/n)

Kellyanne Conway: ‘I’m a Victim of Sexual Assault,’ But Slams FBI Probe of Kavanaugh #SundayMorning #SundayMotivation

Jake Tapper: As a survivor of this, does that not make you think, when you hear somebody like Professor Ford, does that not make you think these women need to be heard?

Kellanne Conway: They should all be heard. And they should be heard in courts of law.
The incredible contortions Kellyanne Conway must have gone through in order to come up with this angle: “The Democrats could have avoided all of this just by coming forward earlier. This woman got a say because of the Republican party” #SundayMorning
