Wait, what?

Courtesy of The Hill:

President Trump is planning to declare a new national emergency in order to implement sweeping tariffs on Mexico over the flow of Central American migrants to the U.S., according to a draft document of the declaration reviewed by The Hill.

According to the document, the new emergency is necessary due to “the failure of the Government of Mexico to take effective action to reduce the mass migration of aliens illegally crossing into the United States through Mexico.”

The new emergency declaration would follow a February emergency declaration, which Trump used to justify sending National Guard troops to support Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials at the southern border.

The draft document signals that the White House believes that imposing the tariffs under the February emergency declaration might not pass legal muster. But it remains unclear if a final decision has been made to invoke another emergency. The White House did not answer questions about the document.

Officials from the White House counsel’s office and the Justice Department floated the idea of a new declaration this week during a closed-door meeting with Republican senators.

Declaring a national emergency in order to build the border wall, declaring a national emergency in order to sell nuclear weapons to the Saudis, and now declaring a national emergency in order to place tariffs on our neighbor the south to stop the flow of immigrants? 

Isn’t abuse of power an impeachable offense?

I mean how long does the mad dictator have to run around foaming at the mouth before somebody stages an intervention?

    What Trump’s tariffs on Mexico will do to red states
    Escalating tariffs on Mexican goods are the equivalent of cutting off one’s nose to spite one’s face.

    Among the top 10 states hit hardest, seven are red states, and five (Michigan, Ohio, Arizona, North Carolina, and Florida) are battleground states.

    DHS watchdog finds spoiled food, nooses at multiple immigration detention centers
    The results confirmed suspicions that ICE is routinely violating the human rights of the individuals in its custody.

    ……….OIG described the food service issues at Adelanto and Essex as “egregious.” At Adelanto, “lunch meat and cheese were mixed and stored uncovered in
    large walk-in refrigerators,” while chicken “smelled foul and appeared to be spoiled.” Food in the freezer was also expired. At Essex, “open packages of raw chicken leaked blood all over refrigeration units” and “lunch meat was slimy, foulsmelling and appeared to be spoiled.”

    The man is an idiot,he makes these stupid comments about something he knows nothing about and sends everyone into a tizzy.

    Then a couple of days later,he backs off and goes on to create another crisis.

    In the meantime he gets the attention he craves and fools his stupid supporters into thinking he is actually doing some work.

    It makes about as much sense as ol Dunlevy having a Senate session at Wasilla Middle School?

    Is there a specific reason it’s WMS? Records? Whose? Why?

    Is it a way to get a sight seeing tour in? Who? Where? Why?

    I am declaring a national emergency because the occupant of the WH is an idiot, both mentally and culturally.

    While in France, he explained to journalists that they have people called “guides” that will explain the history of the building. Obviously the moron has never been to a historical site, museum or monument. Next he will be telling us there is something called a book and you can read it. I don’t know how anyone there kept a straight face.

    Today he is blasting NASA because he thinks the moon is part of Mars.

    More proof that watching FOX lowers your IQ, not that his was very high to begin with.

    Swindling the taxpayer again, notice he also discussed HIS RESORT business, so why in the hell are we paying for his extended vacation?

    Trump’s $3.6 Million Ireland Detour Brings Taxpayer-Funded Golf Tab To $105.8 million

    His for-profit golf course there posted promotional videos of him teeing off and his helicopter’s arrival — but deleted them after HuffPost began making inquiries.

    President Donald Trump wrapped up a visit to his Ireland golf resort Friday, in the process adding at least another $3.6 million to a taxpayer-funded golf tab that totals nearly $106 million in just 2 1/2 years.

    Trump played golf Friday morning and possibly also played Wednesday and Thursday evenings. The White House press corps was not allowed on the property and was instead kept at a hotel in Limerick, more than an hour away from Trump’s resort in Doonbeg.

    Trump also discussed his resort with Ireland’s minister for trade, employment and business upon his arrival at Shannon Airport, where he met Ireland’s prime minister. That 65-minute meeting was conducted at an airport lounge near the food court and the duty-free shopping because Trump did not want to travel to the nation’s capital, Dublin.

    It was the entirety of Trump’s official business in Ireland.

    The State Department began signing contracts for the trip on May 22. Among them: $1,023,940 to rent cars and limos; $10,866 to install temporary phone lines and $16,325 to rent golf carts for the Secret Service agents protecting Trump on the golf course.

    In all, the department gave out $1.5 million in contracts for the Ireland detour, which was melded into Trump’s state visit to England and the ceremony in Normandy to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Allied invasion of occupied France in World War II.

    “On Thursday, Fox News reported that a woman in Palmetto, Florida stabbed herself repeatedly with a kitchen knife — and said it was because of President Donald Trump.

    When responding police officers arrived at her home and found her covered in blood, she revealed three stab wounds to them and said, “I’m tired of living in Trump’s country. I’m tired of Trump being president.”
    The woman, whose name has not been released, was transported to Blake Medical Center. According to the police report, she has a history of mental illness, and was previously placed under involuntary institutionalization under the Florida Mental Health Act of 1971, also known as the Baker Act.”<rawstory

    MEXICO HAS AGREED TO IMMEDIATELY BEGIN BUYING LARGE QUANTITIES OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCT FROM OUR GREAT PATRIOT FARMERS!

    It is something that Trump made up because he is terrified that he is losing the support of farmers, which he is.

    Trump admitted with his tweets that the deal is a con. He had to run away from his tariff threat, so the White House cOOked up a “deal” that he could hide behind and use to claim victory.

    Donald Trump has used the power of the presidency to make the United States an international joke.
