Default Declared National Emergencies Under the National Emergencies Act, 1978-2018

It's interesting, and of course wholly predictable, but with the current media meltdown over Trump's threat to engage in building the wall by declaring a national emergency under his authority as President, the casual observer might think this is somehow a rare occurrence.

It has actually taken place no less than 58 times since the law was passed in 1976, and 31 of those are technically still in effect today. These include such pressing matters of national security such as Obama's 'Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Burundi' (Anyone know where that is?), Bush 43's 'Blocking Property of Persons Undermining Democratic Processes or Institutions in Zimbabwe' and Clinton's 'Prohibiting New Investment in Burma'.

Supposedly these underlying situations posed a substantial risk to our nation, necessitating their declaration, yet there was nary a peep from the media or any threat of legal action to prevent them from being carried out.

The list below doesn't include other notable declarations which occurred prior to the passage of the legislation, such FDR's 1933 closing of the banks and criminalizing ownership of gold or Truman's actions towards the steel industry. Anyone reading through it, separating out the purely political aspects, would need to ask why the current situation would not qualify as an actual emergency in light of previous invocations of the law.

And yes, I know it came from the left wing Brennan center, but it was the most comprehensive and concise list available.

It makes no difference what has been done before him, conservative or liberal, what matters to the bedwetters, pillow-biters and crayon-eaters, is that they oppose every single thing President Trump does, no matter how beneficial it is.

TDS simplified.

REALLY?![/COLOR]=left

Border Patrol......Ice Officers.....Police Officers......Sons.....Daughters...….Mot hers...….Fathers....Friends: All slain by Illegal Aliens.(along with thousands dying of drug overdoses.....and sadly, the dead children of Migrants who have been lied to)
Literally thousands of deaths caused by Foreign invaders......….this DOES NOT warrant a National Emergency?

I guess you would have to know/be related to the Slain listed above for it to have a Common Sense Effect on you..

EDIT: POTUS.....No action at this time on the National Emergency per FNC 2:05 p.m. 1/11/2019
