Has Ocasio had anything to say about National Emergencies"?

No, but Nancy Pelosi has. 

Prior to this morning's WH press conference, Pelosi hinted that a democrat President could declare a National Emergency on gun violence, and revoke everyone's right to keep and bear arms!!   Grin

That's a good indication of Pelosi's understanding of the purpose of the 2nd Amendment.

The Left are unequivocally insane. 

Thank you, President Trump!!   Smiley

A President of any party could do that, right? Under the current law?

The national emergency act is an act of congress.  It therefor comes only with the power of congress.  Congress can't ban guns (2nd amendment), so to say you can ban guns under the national emergency act is the stupid lying thingy that Nancy Pelosi is.

It's like executive powers.  You can't use executive powers beyond the Constitutional power of the Presidency.

These observations are obvious.  Maybe not to the typical American, but that the people who do government at the highest level say stupid crap like that is why government ignores those bounds and is illegitimate and should be overthrown

¡Ocasio! and fellow Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro have joined forces and will introduce a Bill to TERMINATE the President's National Emergency declaration.

Lawsuits are pouring in from all corners of the country, but oddly, no protests from the Ninth Circus Court of Appeals. Not yet, anyways.

What they should be doing is repealing the law that created emergency powers for presidents.

They don't want to do that. They want their future president to have emergency powers. Cry

An interesting exposition of Canadian "social justice":

A bit of a long read, but worthwhile if you don't know where "social justice" leads.

Steve Forbes, owner and editor of Forbes magazine, blasted AOC for her outrageous proposal for the 70% Income Tax rate against 1%ers:

Quote:
“She already helped run Amazon out of town, costing 25,000 jobs paying $150,000 each a year and the tens of thousands of other jobs that would have created.   That kind of destruction we don’t need, we need incentives, removing barriers to people starting new businesses and savings are critical.”

“When you start taxing and destroying peoples’ savings, whether it’s at $10 million or 10,000 you’re going to hurt the economy. The ones that are hurt the most are the very people she purports to represent.”


AOC stated earlier:

Quote:
“It really comes down to the question of, ‘isn’t $10 million enough? Like, when does it stop? At what point is it amoral that we’re building Jeff Bezos a helipad when we have the most amount of homeless people in New York City?’”

Removing barriers and incentives are two very different things. Forbes should learn not to conflate them.

You support the (proposed) 70% Income Tax rate then?

No, I oppose "incentives" to get businesses to locate in specific cities/states. The best incentive is uniform low taxes and minimal regulation. They are best because they apply equally to all businesses.
