Looks like "the democrats might use this power for good" carried the day.

550000 people homeless on a given night in the US. That sounds like a national emergency.

Someone should tell trump that veto isn't even italian, it's latin.
He'll get confused and refuse to use it.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

59-41

https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...=.13a2ef27ac7f
Thursday’s vote followed numerous failed efforts at compromise by vacillating GOP senators, including a dramatic incident Wednesday evening where a trio of GOP senators -- Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) — showed up nearly unannounced at the White House, interrupting Trump at dinner in a last-ditch effort to craft a compromise.

Their efforts failed, and Graham, Cruz and Sasse all ended up voting against the disapproval resolution.

“I said thank you for meeting with us. Sorry we ruined your dinner. And again, if it’d been me, I would have kicked us out after about five minutes,” Graham said later.

It's really surprising to me that tape hasn't come out of a Christian Bale kind of temper tantrum.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Actually pissed I don't have access to C-Span. I wanted to see Wilbur Ross, that old Yoda of grifters, up there bumbling around, asserting rights that don't exist ("I refuse to answer, that's private"), probably has that white chunk of food that old people get on their lip. What a ****ty old, pathetically decrepit raisin person who is also a racist crook society leech who blatantly and illegally tried to make the census more racist.

If When Newsom runs for President I won't forget this. It's not just about the DP. He has principles and he's acting on them.
This maybe should go in the "Who will run..." thread, but Jay Inslee did basically this in early 2014:
Executions Are Suspended by Governor in Washington

Quote:
Citing “problems that exist in our capital punishment system,” Mr. Inslee, a Democrat, said he would issue a reprieve in any death penalty case that crossed his desk, though he would not let any death row prisoners go free. A future governor could reverse this action, he noted, and order an execution to be carried out.
The Washington Supreme Court ended the death penalty in the state late last year:
Washington state ends ‘racially biased’ death penalty

Quote:
“The death penalty is unequally applied — sometimes by where the crime took place, or the county of residence, or the available budgetary resources at any given point in time, or the race of the defendant,” Chief Justice Mary Fairhurst wrote in the lead opinion.
Next step is for our legislature to get rid of the death penalty altogether. A bill has passed the state Senate, just need the state House, which has a comfortable Dem majority, to approve and it's done.
Washington Senate passes death penalty repeal bill

Dunno much about Inslee, but he seems pretty cool.

Are federal police going to listen to Trump's orders to block the new president from moving in to the white house?

Yes. And Yes.

I want Elijah Cummings to run all meetings I'm in. He is simply not accepting Ross' BS here at the end and is giving him deadlines to turn over information.
