The Senate really ought to amend the emergencies act that gave the President this sort of power.

Amend it how? There are times in which the President has to act quicker than Congress does. The money has already been allocated by Congress so it's not like he's usurping the power to initiate spending. There are still open emergencies from past administrations so it's not like immediacy of action has been part of past actions that sailed through without an iota of opposition.

“Effective yesterday, Morris Dees’ employment at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) was terminated. As a civil rights organization, the SPLC is committed to ensuring that the conduct of our staff reflects the mission of the organization and the values we hope to instill in the world. When one of our own fails to meet those standards, no matter his or her role in the organization, we take it seriously and must take appropriate action.

“Today we announced a number of immediate, concrete next steps we’re taking, including bringing in an outside organization to conduct a comprehensive assessment of our internal climate and workplace practices, to ensure that our talented staff is working in the environment that they deserve – one in which all voices are heard and all staff members are respected.

“The SPLC is deeply committed to having a workplace that reflects the values it espouses – truth, justice, equity and inclusion, and we believe the steps we have taken today reaffirm that commitment.”

"We were for the emergency powers act before we were against it."

Congress continues to define douchery downwards.

And now San Fran Nan is pushing lowering the voting age to 16. By any means necessary.

What we have is a coup attempt that began in 2016 and another that began on January 2.

Fact:
Right now we don’t have a MAGA party.
What can we do now besides weeping and knashing of teeth?
The President and the Republican Senate need to work and compromise together to present a unified message to the American people.Both share the responsibility to make this happen.
Find out what caused Roy Blunt to vote to stop the emergency order.
Tons of interaction and communication work needs to be done.
Not just tweets.
Sit down face to face with people and get them on board.
Much work to be done.
No time for wasting time hoping for a MAGA party or wishing for people to die in a fire.

Old Lurker

"Running ads against the senators who voted against. Hand the Senate to the Dems.'

Maryrose, Your Senate, including several you personally worked hard to empower, just voted 59 to 41 to allow unfettered access to your country to millions more upon millions more including criminals, rapists, murderers and drug runners, and illegal job applicants and welfare hogs who can then fan out among all fifty states. In many of those states, they will be invited to vote to increase that paltry 59 number so it will never be so close in the future.

I really don't care that you want to protect them so they can kill again. Those 59 Senators are enemies of the country they swore to protect.

matt - deplore me if you must

Iron Dome can track those missiles from the moment they launch. The Israelis know exactly when and where. The question, I guess, is who?

Netanyahu just warned the Iranians that they know what is going on in Golan, where Hezbollah want to open a second front.

When we were in Israel, we drove along the old northern border fence and the land mine signs were still up.

I think the Iranians are thinking with their cojones. They are just wrapping up a very expensive, deadly war in Syria and seem to be hankering for another one with Israel. The residents of Qom (Mullahville) may want to think about relocating.

The mullahs are heartily disliked by most of the population these days.

Come on. Do you really think the Mitch McConnell GOP Senate are on Trump's side? Really? Well, Mike Lee can kiss his SCOTUS dreams bye-bye as far as I am concerned. And its interesting that we have two Mormons as enemies of Trump, and I might add, America. I hope SLC dies in the massive JamesD fire we have been begging for, for years. They bring nothing to the party.

I don't know about the rest of the country but you should hear the callers to the main talk radio station here in Atl. I've rarely heard people so furious and outraged about a vote... and none of these were senators from Georgia.

To me, this vote is the brightest of bright lines about Open Borders for All. It is the height of folly to pretend it is just another of many votes.

Frankly, as you know I think our goose is cooked already because of the mess we already have created. Throw in another 10,20,30,40 M mouths to feed and votes to lose, and we don't have a snowballs chance in Hell to salvage the country of our Founders and our Fathers.

That makes them enemies in all of the classic definitions of the word. The problem is pretending otherwise.

So, Mary Rose, in your orthodoxy of American politics, it is up to the POTUS, to beg Congress? Actually, it's the other away around. Read the Federalist papers sometimes. We are not equal branches of government we are a government with checks and balances.

Trump has every right to demand of Congress to agree with him. If they don't he also has the right to veto their disagreement. Eventually, it all settles, in the end, one way or the other. The worst thing to come out of the Constitution was to make the SCOTUS somehow an equal branch when they are not. They have use fake law to make themselves that way.

I mean they continue to make non-constitutional opinions which are contrary to their actual remit.

BETO SAYS HE’S OPEN TO PACKING THE SUPREME COURT

Speaking at a coffee shop in Burlington, Iowa, O’Rourke, said adding six seats to the high court could curb political dysfunction.

“What if there were five justices selected by Democrats, five justices selected by Republicans, and those ten then picked five more justices independent of those who chose the first ten?” O’Rourke said, invoking a reform proposal that has gained currency in recent weeks. “I think that’s an idea that we should explore.”

“The Court should be able to reflect the diversity that we are composed of in this country,” he added. He also said imposing term limits would ensure a “regular rotation” of justices.

But that in 2019, the GOP could feel safe in pulling such an outrage .... tells me they've calculated the electorate is not to be feared. Trump was a black swan, and a one-off (even if he's re-elected). Critical aspects of the agenda that lifted Trump into the WH can continue to be snubbed, or actively undermined, by the GOP. With impunity.
