I hope no-one stops him. He is digging himself in deeper and deeper. When does the 25th amendment come into play again? If anyone ever demonstrated incompetency on the job, it has to be this one.

This doesn’t look good,

"Even if Congress passes such a resolution, Trump would probably veto it, “

So even if congress votes to repeal the National Emergency he can override it, I.e they have no power.

The Presidential Veto and Congressional Veto Override Process

 


The veto power does not give the President the power to amend or alter the content of legislation - the President only has the ability to accept or reject an entire act passed by Congress. ...

 

Congress can override a veto by passing the act by a two-thirds vote in both the House and the Senate.

 

 

It seems unlikely that enough Republicans would rebel to gain a two-thirds majority in both chambers.

The New York Times - In North Carolina, Investigators Find Ballot ‘Scheme’ in House Race

 

Feb. 18, 2019

 


RALEIGH, N.C. — A North Carolina elections regulator said Monday that “a coordinated, unlawful and substantially resourced absentee ballot scheme” potentially involving more than 1,000 absentee ballots or request forms took place last year in the state’s Ninth Congressional District.

 

The regulator, Kim Strach, the executive director of the North Carolina State Board of Elections, gave the first account of investigators’ conclusions at a hearing in Raleigh that could determine the fate of the Ninth District race after allegations of widespread fraud.

 

The Republican nominee, Mark Harris, has a 905-vote lead over his Democratic rival, Dan McCready, but state officials last year refused to certify Mr. Harris as the winner because of concerns about “irregularities” in absentee balloting.

 

The hearing’s outcome could undermine Republicans’ assertions that they take a hard line against election fraud. ...

BREAKING NEWS

 

The Washington Post - Coalition of states sues Trump over national emergency to build border wall

 

February 18 at 7:56 PM

 


A coalition of 16 states filed a federal lawsuit Monday to block President Trump’s plan to build a border wall without permission from Congress, arguing that the president’s decision to declare a national emergency is unconstitutional.

 

The lawsuit, brought by states with Democratic governors, seeks a preliminary injunction that would prevent the president from acting on his emergency declaration while the case plays out in the courts.

 

The complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, a San Francisco-based court whose judges have ruled against an array of other Trump administration policies, including on immigration and the environment.

 

Accusing the president of “an unconstitutional and unlawful scheme,” the suit says the states are trying “to protect their residents, natural resources, and economic interests from President Donald J. Trump’s flagrant disregard of fundamental separation of powers principles engrained in the United States Constitution.”

 

The complaint, filed by the attorneys general of nearly a third of the states and representing millions of Americans, immediately became the heavyweight among a rapid outpouring of opposition to the president’s emergency declaration. ...

The Washington Post -
To Trump, the media is the ‘enemy of the people.’ He should look in the mirror.

 



Trump is playing with fire.

 

By using the derogatory phrase, “enemy of the people,” he is unwittingly associating himself with the most vicious dictators of the 20th century, such as Adolf Hitler of Nazi Germany, Joseph Stalin of the Soviet Union and Mao Zedong of Communist China.

 

Trump has never felt the need to study history, so he apparently knows little to nothing about these dictators’ frequent use of the phrase to isolate, attack and murder their political opponents - usually reporters, writers and political dissidents.

 

Trump has not yet paid any political price for this mindless association with these dictators.

 

In fact, many Republicans, whose memories stretch no further back than the Nixon administration’s attacks on the “nattering nabobs of negativism,” have cheerfully applauded Trump’s anti-media offense, no matter its historical roots. ...
