Nice if you are right, I am skeptical...we'll see what we see.

President Trump promised on the campaign trail that he would only hire the best people, and that's just what he's doing!

Hiring good people ain't gonna fix the the problem.  FIRING people is. 

DRAIN THE SWAMP!

The Founders gave the President the ability to use the emergency powers for a reason, in over to over-ride Congress when they fail to act!

Trump is keeping his promise to Us and to Them!

The Founders didn't give the president the National Emergencies Act.  It was passed in 1976:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Emergencies_Act

So the POTUS never had an emergency come up until 1976???  ???

The Founders could not envision every possible situation the nation and its leaders may face, "emergency" powers while not an express power of the Executive is an implied power since it is logical that if any branch of power is positioned to react quicker to any emergency it would be the Executive.  The 1976 NEA merely codified things and gave Congress a feels-goods participation trophy, since they either need a super-majority vote to override a declaration or hope to have a President dumb enough to sign legislation doing so of less than a super-majority.

Exactly! and if you think about back in the olden days, they didn't have radio and television or fast transportation. Congress would be out of session for 4-5 months at a time with legislators back in their districts! What did POTUS do, wait for them to come back to Washington, D.C. in order to vote???  ::rolllaughing::

The founders wisely gave the executive branch the power to act! And that's all that President Trump is doing, enforcing the law and FIXING THIS EMERGENCY!

He's going to shut down this illegal fake-news fake-collusion presidential harassment once and for all, that was Mr. Trump's plan from the start. He fired Sessions because Sessions refused to DO HIS JOB and stop the investigation. If Mr Barr fails in the same way, HE IS TOAST.

  I don't think he has any intension of honoring the bill. Emergency powers I believe supersede the bill.

Oh he'll take the 1-point-whatever billion from that, and then he'll use EP's to get all the rest. Hopefully pulling those dollars away from other things will hurt the government so the dems will be forced to give more outright in order to stop it.

  They won't give him anything he'll have to beat it out of them and fight all the way. They have nothing to run on in 2020 so the fight is it.  He can run on he's fighting for us.

I'm thinking that by stripping money from the DOD it would be like a backdoor - shutdown and the dems will get blamed so they'll have to give in.
