Take a step back and BREATHE. [View all]

Please stop with the "He's gonna dissolve Congress and the Supreme Court!!!!!" nonsense

He is not, nor can he even if he wants to. The law that authorizes national emergencies provides ZERO authority to suspend the constitution or Congress or anything else. It deals with using DOD funds, personnel, and material for projects related to national security outside of direct congressional appropriation not tossing SCOTUS out on their asses or suspending elections or lining up and shooting representatives.

Truth is the emergency declaration is pure political theatre

Trump knows damn well that Roberts will almost certainly side with the 4 liberal justices against this move thereby stopping it.

Nothing more than some red meat for his deplorable base so he can tell them he did all he could to get the wall built.
