The left wing hysteria over Trump’s national emergency declaration is overflowing. He’d been threatening it. It was a campaign promise. They didn’t listen. So amped to prevent Donald Trump from any success, democrats are more than willing to see Americans continue to die- being killed at the hands of illegals and from drug overdoses. Trump has tried several times to get the wall built to no avail. So today he declared the need to build the wall a national emergency.
And democrats are blinded with rage.
If you listen to the left wing media, you’d think declaring a national emergency was something way out of the ordinary.

If President Donald Trump moves to invoke a national emergency at the US border to bypass Congress and obtain funding to build his long-promised border wall, a battle in the courts over the questionable legality of spending those dollars would be virtually guaranteed.
But the United States is no stranger to national emergencies.
In fact, the US has been in a perpetual state of declared national emergency for four decades, and the country is currently under 31 concurrent states of emergency about a spectrum of international issues around the globe, according to a CNN review of documents from the Congressional Research Service and the Federal Register.
Obama declared 13 of them.
In fact, Donald Trump issued the 30th national emergency:
30. Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election (September 12, 2018)
This was directed at the Russians. Remember hearing any democrats whining about it? Me neither. How about this one?
29. Blocking the Property of Persons Involved in Serious Human Rights Abuse or Corruption (December 20, 2017)
Crickets from the left.
What is the emergency?
- The flood of illegals into the country
- The invasion by MS 13

Aaron Francisco Chavez swallowed at least one of the sky blue pills at a Halloween party before falling asleep forever. He became yet another victim killed by a flood of illicit fentanyl smuggled from Mexico by the Sinaloa cartel into the Southwest — a profitable new business for the drug gang that has made the synthetic opioid responsible for the most fatal overdoses in the U.S.
Three others at the party in Tucson also took the pills nicknamed “Mexican oxy.” They were saved after partygoers flagged down police who administered naloxone overdose reversal medication. The treatment came too late for the 19-year-old Chavez.
The pills vary widely in strength, from a tiny amount to enough to cause lethal overdoses. Law enforcement officials say they have become a lucrative new product for the cartel, despite the conviction this week of Sinaloa kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera in New York.
The four Tucson partiers thought they were taking oxycodone, a much less powerful opioid, investigators believe. The death of Chavez and many others, officials said, illustrate how Arizona and other southwestern states bordering Mexico have become a hot spot in the nation’s fentanyl crisis. Fentanyl deaths tripled in Arizona from 2015 through 2017.
“It’s the worst I’ve seen in 30 years, this toll that it’s taken on families,” said Doug Coleman, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration special agent in charge of Arizona. “The crack (cocaine) crisis was not as bad.”
- Americans dying at the hands of illegals
So frankly, f**l Nancy Pelosi, f**k Chuck Schumer, f**k Oacsio-Cortez and f**k every other democrat saying there’s no crisis.
Of course, democrats who are inexplicably and vehemently opposed to stemming any of the above are making threatening overtures.
Ocasio-Cortez thinks that once she and Castro write a bill to stop Trump it automatically becomes law.
Pelosi threatened gun ownership
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday issued a warning to Republicans poised to support President Trump‘s decision to declare a national emergency at the southern border: the next Democratic president, she said, could do the same on guns.
“A Democratic president can declare emergencies, as well,” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. “So the precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans.”
Pelosi noted that Thursday marked the one-year anniversary of the shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 students and faculty dead. She argued that the real national emergency is not illegal border crossings, but gun violence in the U.S.
“Let’s talk about today: The one-year anniversary of another manifestation of the epidemic of gun violence in America,” Pelosi said. “That’s a national emergency. Why don’t you declare that emergency, Mr. President? I wish you would.
“But a Democratic president can do that.”
Go ahead, Nancy, bring it on. It is an easy argument to make the case that there is a genuine emergency because of poor border control. On the other hand, it seems pretty asinine to suggest that a democrat President would threaten anyone’s Constitutional rights with a national emergency. What other rights might a democrat President suspend? The First Amendment? The Fourth?
The last example I can think of was the internment of Japanese Americans by a democrat President.
The nonsense will be swept away by the Supreme Court, just as was the travel ban. Trump absolutely blasted Jim Acosta with one sentence today:
“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.
You’ll remember that Nancy Pelosi refused to meet with these Angel Moms. After all, they’re Americans whose children have been killed by illegal aliens.
They do not matter to Pelosi or any other democrat.
All of this makes you wonder- how many democrats are on the payroll of the drug cartels?
