Fascism Comes to America

And it is in the process of making another big march toward victory, with the ignorant traitor President deciding he can steal money to do whatever he wants.

First, let me remind you of what the Constitution has to say about appropriating money:

 "All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives... 
The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States... 
 No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law"

There is absolutely no question that the Constitution forbids what Donald Trump is doing in declaring a state of emergency for the sole purpose of spending money on something which Congress will not approve.  What he is doing is quintessential behavior of dictators, and if his party allows this action to stand, it will have dealt a near death blow to American democratic government.

Sad to say, that may be perfectly fine with them, and with their successful packing of the Supreme Court with corrupt justices it may well succeed.  Let's hope it is not okay with the rest of us.
