    At 3:30 ET, Donald Trump is scheduled to waddle forth, produce his cadre of “angel moms” from wherever he keeps them between Rose Garden events, and sign his first veto since he began occupying the White House. There’s very little doubt that he will. And equally little doubt that it will come with more of the kind of “invasion” language that appeared in other statements over the last 24 hours.

    It’s unlikely that enough votes can be mustered in the House or Senate to override the veto, so Trump probably thinks his scrawl means it’s all over but the court case. He’s wrong.

    As soon as Trump vetoes this bill, there is something that Nancy Pelosi can do: pass an identical bill. There are no limits in the National Emergency Act on how often this can be pushed onto Trump’s desk. There is also no option in the Senate for them to be quashed without a vote. So Democrats in the House can pass another bill, and it will go back to the Senate, where Republican senators will be forced to vote on it again. And then Trump—and whoever pays for transportation and appearance fees for his gallery—can go through the motions on the White House lawn a second time.

    Maybe that bill won’t get two-thirds either. But maybe the one after that would. Or the one after that. And if they don’t, they would still force Republicans to either sign on to Trump’s unconstitutional power grab, or … agree that it’s an unconstitutional power grab.

    It’s extremely likely that the courts will come along to stop Trump’s multi-billion dollar theft. But until they do, Pelosi can keep making them vote on this. Again. And again.

    As Trump prepares to veto bill overriding his emergency act, the House should prepare to do it again

    I don't think dotard understands how this whole seperate powers thing works. :3:

    Good luck with that but in all honesty, you're screwed. Nothing you can do is going to stop him, so you might as well lay back and enjoy your screwing.

    Oh he’s absolutely going to be stopped. That’s already baked in. Wait until landowners in Texas find out the government is going to take their land. You got the screwed part right.

    You're living in an imaginary dream world. There are no unicorns, no big rock candy mountains, and the wall is being built even as you sit there in front of your computer.

    And there's nothing you can do about it.

    AG Bill Barr: Mr. President your declaration of an emergency on the southern border was clearly authorized under the law and consistent with past precedent… The humanitarian and security crisis that we currently have right now on the border is exactly the type of emergency that presidents are permitted to address.
