That's what has got your dander up. Minorities in the US have acquired political clout and are using it to assert their civil rights.

No, darling....minorities just do not seem to see the pattern (that goes for grandiose, self-hatting white snowflakes also).

The Democrat Party...the party of enslavement (while Republicans stand by, pretending to be aloof).

I'd say the Russian oligarch type minority gets a pretty good airing from the Trump presidency. That particular group seemed to have gamed the pattern exceptionally well, while your bunch of snowflakes have been duped by bulls**t. 

Hows that Mexican funded imaginary wall working out for you?

Looks like Trump is going to have to use his veto to get his funding through congress before it's eventually blocked completely in the supreme court.

They've become a coalition of different groups with different agendas. What unites them is their hatred of white conservatives.

Yes, you're a poor victim and everyone is conspiring to make life miserable for you. We get it.

who would have thought that a country with different ethnic groups and a diverse range of backgrounds would be represented by different politicians with different agendas.  who have thunked it?  the white conservatives did their image the world of good in the Kavanaugh and Cohen hearings as well.  we hear the barely literate nonsense from jim jordan and paul gosar and then we get to hear the eloquent directness of Ocasio-Cortez.  the difference was like night a day.

Food for thought, for those capable of cognition:

Quote
We are told that America is divided and polarized as never before. Yet when it comes to many important areas of policy, that simply isn’t true.

About 75 percent of Americans favor higher taxes for the ultrawealthy. The idea of a federal law that would guarantee paid maternity leave attracts 67 percent support. Eighty-three percent favor strong net neutrality rules for broadband, and more than 60 percent want stronger privacy laws. Seventy-one percent think we should be able to buy drugs imported from Canada, and 92 percent want Medicare to negotiate for lower drug prices. The list goes on.

Pay for play is the exact opposite of draining the swamp.

Quote
A cached version of the website – Mother Jones reported that the live version stopped working on Friday – describes Ms Yang as founder of the company and shows her in two photos alongside Mr Trump.

Accompanying an image of Mar-a-Lago, Mr Trump’s private club in Florida, the company claims to offer clients the opportunity for a “presidential roundtable and presidential dinner” and to “take photos with the president”.

It also offers the opportunity to interact with the president and the “Minister of Commerce” – presumably US commerce secretary Wilbur Ross – as well as access to a “First Lady Charity Ball”.

Quote
The newspaper reported Ms Yang and her relatives have since 2017 donated more than $42,000 to a Trump political action committee, as well as $16,000 to Mr Trump’s presidential campaign.

And who knows what perks he's availed himself of at her massage parlors?

Who knew you could buy a US president for so little?

and after two years and three months of the 'Emergency' at the Mexico border....

the house of representatives have already told Trump to go fukc himself

now in the senate, 59-41 (12 republicans) said there is no way....

sooooo...

he's going to veto them?   :laugh:

surely, if hundreds of elected officials tell the president there is no way, how can one fukcwit like trump think he should still be allowed to go ahead with it?  where's his 'lovely health plan' for all these americans?

I can help out here.
Those democrats that voted, simply voted because they hate trump.  They stick together which is more than I can say for republicans.   The 12 republicans argued that the president should not have the authority to unilaterally make executive orders.  They ostensibly want a less powerful government.   I suspect that they are globalist trump hating never trumpers    Obama was the king of the executive order, for less important things than border protection.  Too bad republicans are acting pricipled instead of kicking butt.  Let’s hope these 12 get voted out of office. 
Bonzai!

Yes, the American system of government grants the Executive Branch veto power. Virtually every president at some point in their term in office has vetoed legislation that has reached their desk.

Or are you suggesting the use of a presidential veto is a uniquely Trump phenomenon?

Also, learn to capitalize.

You do realize that the whole seriously vs. literally was a major theme for people analyzing the election. The concept was first articulated by Salena Zito. Peter Thiel also explained it.

https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/09/trump-makes-his-case-in-pittsburgh/501335/
https://www.cnbc.com/2016/11/09/peter-thiel-perfectly-summed-up-donald-trump-in-one-paragraph.html

Quote
“I think one thing that should be distinguished here is that the media is always taking Trump literally. It never takes him seriously, but it always takes him literally. ... I think a lot of voters who vote for Trump take Trump seriously but not literally, so when they hear things like the Muslim comment or the wall comment, their question is not, ‘Are you going to build a wall like the Great Wall of China?’ or, you know, ‘How exactly are you going to enforce these tests?’ What they hear is we’re going to have a saner, more sensible immigration policy.”

Also, the idea that voters went with Trump, not out of any specific agreements with his policies or even that they thought his proposals were practical, but they simply felt that the Democrats were going to radicalize the country over the cliff and latched on to Trump as a sort of desperate gambit, is the concept explained by Michael Anton.
https://www.claremont.org/crb/basicpage/the-flight-93-election/

For both of these, the simplistic and inaccurate premise that Trump voters believe everything that he says, literally, based upon one's own dialogue with oneself, is instead replaced with a more nuanced view of Trump supporters based on scores of interviews conducted with actual Trump voters. To be sure, some are blind adherents, most are not.  The left-wing British comedian Jonathan Pie also noticed this phenomenon as he toured America and spoke to Trump voters. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTZNvlBAF60 And Michael Moore also seemed to be perceiving this when he spoke to a mixed crowd in Ohio before the election  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMm5HfxNXY4 Chris Matthews recognized that when it came to the immigration issue, while Trump's proposal was quite possible bad, the Democrats essentially had NO proposal and that whatever they said they would do, no one really believed it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRZl3q1gqqg

People back Trump on immigration, not because they necessarily agree with his plan or sincerely think Mexico will pay for it, they back it because he's the only politician who seems willing to do anything about the issue. They may not even think illegal immigration is THAT big of an issue, but what they do see is what it represents- A ruling class in Washington that cares more about the rights and welfare of the cheap illegal workforce they get to import and gain votes from, rather than the citizens of this country.

Oh really?

Here's a list of emergencies signed by other presidents, 31 of which are still in effect and renewed annually. Also, given that two previous declarations have dealt with criminal enterprises related to narcotics trafficking, they quite likely give Trump at least something of a justified claim in enacting this.
https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/list-31-national-emergencies-effect-years/story?id=60294693

Look, I don't agree with it, but I do think, given precedent, it is probably within his purview.

Quote

You play to a person's inferiority complex? Wow, that must be really sad. I mean, it's one thing to have an inferiority complex, but another thing to play to it and write a certain way just because. Anyways, I think you meant play with.

Anyways, care to tell us what former poster, likely banned, you are? Although given your writing style, you are more likely one of the other posters already here.

An emergency declaration is NOT in the president's purview as a way to obtain funding for a project that has been specifically not provided by the congress, who controls the purse strings of government.  He had over two years to obtain funding for the wall, and for over two years the Congress has simply not given it to him--that doesn't make it an emergency.

Also: "I didn't need to do this."  Donald J Drumpf

The forth-odd senators who voted against the resolution are traitors, plain and simple--traitors to the congress, traitors to the Constitution, and traitors to the country.
