    There are real national emergencies:

    a) Climate crisis — possible extinction of human life and many other species

    b) Epidemic of gun violence and mass shootings

    c) People dying from lack of access to health care or pharmaceuticals because they don’t have enough money or they don’t work for the right company. What is the price you put on a person’s life?

    d) National Emergency in the Oval Office — liar, liar, Trump’s pants on fire.

    On the border? Emergency? How gullible do the Trumpers think we are? Do they think all of us are as stupid, misinformed and gullible as their voters?

    Emergency?

    • Illegal border crossings have decreased every year for the last ten years

    • illegal border crossings are at a 46-year low

    • more Mexican Americans last year LEFT the U.S. and returned to Mexico than came here

    • lowest number of undocumented residents since 2000

    • doing nothing for two years when he controlled the entire government, then five weeks of shutdown and three more weeks of negotiations means it’s not an “emergency”

    • admitting that “I didn’t have to do this” means it’s not an “emergency”

    • the National Intelligence Estimate recently issued earlier this month, defining threats to national security, DID NOT EVEN MENTION THE SOUTHERN BORDER

    But go ahead, Donald. When we replace you with a Democratic president, watch for “national emergencies” on climate change, gun death epidemic and health care.

    “‘I am dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on earth’: A self-proclaimed white nationalist planned a mass terrorist attack, the government says.”

    “A U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant and self-identified white nationalist was arrested after federal investigators uncovered a cache of weapons and ammunition in his Maryland home that authorities say he stockpiled to launch a widespread domestic terrorist attack targeting politicians and journalists.”…“In recent weeks, according to the court filings, Hasson developed a spreadsheet of targets that included top Democratic congressional leaders and media personalities. The list includes “JOEY,” what prosecutors say is a reference to former congressman Joe Scarborough (R-Fla.), now of MSNBC; “cortez,” an alleged reference to freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.); and “Sen blumen jew,” presumably about Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.).”…https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/public-safety/self-proclaimed-white-nationalist-planned-mass-terror-attack-government-says-i-am-dreaming-of-a-way-to-kill-almost-every-last-person-on-earth/2019/02/20/61daf6b8-3544-11e9-af5b-b51b7ff322e9_story.html?utm_term=.eab22aa83b8e

    (/s) NRA response: "Don’t you people get it? Our Mass Shootings are done by good red-blooded Americans exercising their Second Amendment Rights! Besides, we offer up all those “thoughts and prayers” as we wipe up the blood. What do you people want from us?"

    I find it encouraging so few commenters try to defend trump and his regime on these posts. (for that matter, the republican hierarchy and conservative missinformation) The few that do, fail so miserably, or, claim actions of the republican party when it was socially liberal. (about 50 years ago)

    So far, angry hateful white men hold the #1 spot on the killboard with guns, and #2 with destroying buildings. But it’s the brown people we need to build a wall to keep out.

    There’s a reader at NYT- and my favorite- who writes little gems. His latest about our home grown terrorist- of all things, in the Coast Guard- who got caught just in time:

    [ ‘A well regulated dementia, being necessary to the paranoid delusions of a murderous state, the right of the people to be randomly slaughtered by a white Christian male terrorist and gun nut, shall not be infringed.’ ….

    Stop the Guns Over People National Terrorist Association party.

    D for public safety; R for a national shooting gallery.’ ]

    While he’s got those things up to his eyes, somebody tell him there’s a cool eclipse happening and that liberals are warning him not to look at it.

    Elizabeth Warren: Let’s talk about the real national emergencies

    Senate Democrats plan to introduce resolution blocking Trump’s national emergency

    In 2018, the number of hate groups in America reached a 20-year high—thanks to Trump
