Pelosi Schumer

CNS News: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Democratic Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) released a joint statement Friday condemning President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the U.S. southern border.

After Pres. Trump signed a national emergency declaration on the threat of illegal immigration to the U.S., Pelosi and Schumer responded, calling it an “unlawful declaration over a crisis that does not exist”:

“The President’s unlawful declaration over a crisis that does not exist does great violence to our Constitution and makes America less safe, stealing from urgently needed defense funds for the security of our military and our nation. This is plainly a power grab by a disappointed President, who has gone outside the bounds of the law to try to get what he failed to achieve in the constitutional legislative process.”

The statement calls on Republicans to joint Democrats in challenging the constitutionality of Pres. Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the border:

“The President’s actions clearly violate the Congress’s exclusive power of the purse, which our Founders enshrined in the Constitution. The Congress will defend our constitutional authorities in the Congress, in the Courts, and in the public, using every remedy available.

“This issue transcends partisan politics and goes to the core of the Founders’ conception for America, which commands Congress to limit an overreaching executive. The President’s emergency declaration, if unchecked, would fundamentally alter the balance of powers, inconsistent with our Founders’ vision.

“We call upon our Republican colleagues to join us to defend the Constitution. Just as both parties honored our oath to protect the American people by passing the conference committee bill, the Congress on a bipartisan basis must honor the Constitution by defending our system of checks and balances.

“The President is not above the law. The Congress cannot let the President shred the Constitution.”

  1. It’s a blatant attempt by the Democrats to increase the number of electoral votes they have and to stack the deck in the Presidential election. The more illegals in America the more people in the census therefore increasing the number of electoral votes states like California, Arizona and Texas will have. It’s all about the votes! WE THE PEOPLE will be in a shooting war before this ignorance is over. Seriously, our border needs secured and the Dems know it, they would rather have the votes than protect the American Citizen! It’s going to get crazy real soon!

  2. as I’ve said here and other places.
    i give it LESS THAN TWO YEARS, but i feel it will be a LOT SOONER.
    and we the people will be into the SHOOTING PART OF THE WAR we find ourselves in.
    and STARTED BY THOSE RADICAL, LAWLESS, COMMUNIST DEMORAT ENEMIES OF OUR REPUBLIC.
    hell tbis is NOT ROCKET SCIENCE, this has ALWAYS BEEN THE PLAN OF OUR DOMESTIC ENEMIES.
    and is the MAIN REASON ALL OF THEM ARE TRYING SO HARD TO TRY AND DISARM WE THE PEOPLE.
    EVERY PATRIOT IN OUR NATION NEEDS TO ORGANIZE AND GET READY FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT ALREADY.
    TIME IS SHORT FOLKS.

  3. LOTS A LUCK WITH SCHUMER AND PELOSI GOING TO HELL, HELL WILL NOT LET THEM IN. HELL HAS HIGHER STANDARDS

  4. Barack Obama: There Is a Crisis at the Border https://youtu.be/7nJ64-Xf8U4 via @YouTube • This is the issue: Do we believe in our capacity for self-government, or do we abandon the American Revolution and acknowledge that a few intellectual elites in a far distant capital can plan our lives for us better then we can ourselves? We are not ignorant citizen incapable of determining what is best for ourselves. Nor are we blind to the flagrant misuse by, and inappropriate conduct of our elected public leaders. All leaders must be held completely accountable for their actions that break the laws which we have established by our legislators and mandated by the will of the people.

    • The moral and ethical corruption must not be allowed to continue and unchallenged and it must be punished to the fullest extent of our laws so that the world will see that the government of the United States is still responsible and answerable to, We the people!

    • Declare the Mexican drug cartels to be international terrorist organizations and invading fourth-generation MILITARY enemies of the United States in the war on terror. The cartels also directly aid the infiltration of the United States by other international terrorist organizations/military enemies such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda. Deploy the full weight of the U.S. military to secure the entire 2,000 mile border with Mexico. Even with a wall, securing the border will take military boots on the ground, using active duty infantry and National Guard to secure the border, just as President Wilson did in 1916, and also calling forth the Militia (we the people) under 10 U.S.C. secs. 252 and 253. WHY: A. President Trump should declare the Mexican drug cartels (and their Columbian cartel allies) to be international terrorist organizations and fourth-generation military enemies of the United States

    • because that is exactly what they are. The current definition of “terrorism” in federal law is the use of force, or the threatened use of force, to change the behavior of a government or a population. That is what the cartels do, every day, both in Mexico (and in Central and South America) and also inside the United States. The cartels are infamous for taking over territory,

    • including local governments and law enforcement, through their use of terror, with the infamous “offer” of “plato o promo” (“silver or lead”), which means local government officials, law enforcement officers, and residents can either take the cartels bribe and do as they command, or they will get a bullet. The cartels use the same methods that the Taliban, Al Qaeda, and ISIS have used to take over territory. By using such terrorism, the cartels are the de-facto rulers of much of Mexico, especially Northern Mexico, and are rapidly becoming the de-facto rulers on American soil, taking over U.S. territory just like they do in Mexico,

    • especially in the border towns and counties. In fact, during the Obama Administration, the U.S. government posted signs on federal land in Southern Arizona warning Americans that it was not safe to venture onto that land because of cartel violence. One sign even advised Americans to instead only set foot on BLM land north of I-8 in Arizona- conceding the reality that the cartels controlled the land south of I-8 and effectively ceding control of that American soil to the cartels. Instead of rooting the cartels out, and securing the border, the Obama Admin simply warned Americans not go onto cartel land on American soil! Further,

    • because the cartels now control land on both sides of the border, the drug cartels now effectively control the border itself between the United States and Mexico, and are making a killing (sometimes literally) by demanding thousands of dollars from each and every illegal alien or “asylum seeking refugee” that wants to cross. Because the border is not secure, and is effectively in cartel hands, they can bring across anyone they want, or anything they want, including other international terrorists or weapons of mass destruction, as well as women and children forced into sex slavery by cartel brutality only rivaled by ISIS. High crimes and misdemeanors Traders Of the United States

    • The charge of high crimes and misdemeanors covers allegations of misconduct peculiar to officials, such as perjury of oath, abuse of authority, bribery, intimidation, misuse of assets, failure to supervise, dereliction of duty, conduct unbecoming, and refusal to obey a lawful order. Thank you for your time and consideration regarding this matter David W Pellham

  5. The bulk of those attacking our President are the DemocRAT’s and RINO’s who are part and parcel to the Soros Sedition and Treasonous actions to take over the Government of the United States of America. With over 340 million firearms in the hands of American Patriots and Veterans, there will be a reckoning and the American Patriots will win!!!!
