The President has declared his National Emergency. The Speaker of the House has announced her intentions and things she is “considering” in response.
There are plenty of “i’s” to dot and “t’s” yet to be crossed. We already know that the Democrat’s in Congress will Judge shop to find an agreeable Bench to issue an injunction and declare that the President’s declaration is invalid. There remain arguments as to whether or not such a declaration can even be used in the manner proposed.
Some very intelligent and knowledgeable people whom I hold in high regard have said that it is not. Others have said that it is not only legal but exactly what Congress intended when they wrote the laws in question.
So let us presume that it is legal and Constitutional. Just a presumption, not an established absolute… what happens not next, but long term? If we presume that the Courts do or do not shoot the legal challenge down, with what kind country are we left?
There are possibilities here which could be restorative to liberty, but I doubt that any of the so-called “Leaders” involved have any clue about those possibilities. And so we watch the drama play out on our televisions and wonder whether or not any of this will make any difference?
After the regular show today, Dave talks about some personal stuff that will be impacting the show over the next few weeks…
I’m still not 100%. I’m barely 50%, but we’re gonna give it a go.
You know how it’s fun to call those IRS scammers back and mess with them? Don’t do that. It’s exactly what they want. Besides which, all of the non-essential IRS employees, something around 80% of them, aren’t working right now anyway, so why would they be calling you?
The reason they aren’t working is, of course, the partial shutdown. Now the thinking is that the President is going to declare a national emergency on the border, and thus fund his wall. There are some problems with that line of thought, not the least of which is even if he can do it, should he?
