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

Oh there is no doubt this is setting bad precedent. Or more accurately  piling on bad precedent on Obama's many  bad precedents.
Can't say I am upset however.  He is using the emergency powers  to perform a function the Government is not doing  and Constitutionally as an obligation to do. And America and her government died years ago. There is no reciprocal civility or willingness to follow the rules on the part of Democrats - so we either cheat like they do or loose to their dirty pool.

Contrast with Pelosi's threat to use emergency action to implement gun control in direct contradiction to the Constitutions explicit prohibition on such measures.
Oh, and that will also start a war...

I really don't think it's precedent setting in the least.  It's been done many times in the past,  even the reallocation of funds thing.
I wouldn't put too much stock in anything Pelosi says.   At this point,   she's talking scared (scared that Trump may actually "git 'r' done").

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

Yes and no.

Trump can't fight everyone (both dhimmis and pubbies are lined up against him) so he's fighting the battles he can win and postponing the rest until he better situated.
There is not now and never has been any guarantee that he would win. Indeed, the odds have always been mightily stacked against him. But the remarkable thing is that he stands undeterred. And he keeps on coming on.

The prevailing winds are blowing against him but those winds are dangerous and destructive. What he is doing is right - and for the right reasons. They resonate with the American people even in the face of unrelenting leftist propaganda.

Trump will take the deal - flawed as it is, and combine it with his EO to build more wall. The dhimmis will protest and scream and stomp their feet - all while the wall is built.

Meanwhile, enjoy the show...

Oh I hope they can bring this to market.

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.
