Federal judge temporarily revives part of DACA immigration program – NBC News

Tags

, , , , , ,

Once again this Administration and its unjust treatment of individuals is slapped down by the courts. This is why the court system is so important in our country. We have three branches of government and the courts make sure that the executive and the legislative branches do not overstep their Authority. You will hear the GOP talk about Judges that make rulings as judges death deny the other branches of government their rights. That only is an argument they use when the ruling goes against their best interests. And for too long now their best interests have not been with the American people but with corporations and the wealthy. The GOP needs to rethink its whole attitude towards civil rights and the American people and their right to Justice.

As we well know, the DACA recipients are not the criminals that the current occupant of the White House claimed War coming across our borders but have been here all of their lives through no fault of their own brought here by their parents. They are as American as we are. They deserve the right to live in freedom without the threat of some civil Authority coming and rounding them up.

The GOP is fond of saying that this dossier was commissioned by the Hillary Clinton campaign. What they always fail to say was that it was first commissioned by a republican running against Donald Trump.

They refuse to let the transcripts of several witness interviews be released to the public including those of Donald Trump jr. The problem is that they have no basis for not allowing this to be released. In Watergate there was a separation of the powers that made it difficult to get papers released because they were asking for documentation from the executive branch and the legislative branch does not have power to do so as easily as it does to ask for its own documents. Once again the GOP is trying to hide the truth about the Russian collusion with the Trump campaign and the cover-up and obstruction of justice. Let’s not forget this happened during to transition and Mike Pence was in charge during the transition. So this does not stop with Donald Trump it goes throughout his campaign and White House.

Pardoned former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio announces Senate run – NBC News

Tags

, , , , , ,

After a Judge Roy Moore, Sheriff Joe Arpaio is the perfect choice for a GOP candidate for Senate. First they try to get a man who was instrumental in the growth of the me-too movement and now they want to put in a sheriff that broke the law and had to be pardoned. He’s 85 years old which also is a big question mark. If he wins he would be 86 years old which means he would run for reelection at 92. I think it’s time for a new generation to start running for elected positions in the federal government.

We’ve had enough reactionary politicians and Joe Arpaio is not only a convicted felon but one that has no regard for other people’s rights and should never be anywhere close to the Senate.

Hypocrite, what is thy name? 

Thy name name is Trump.

If we should take him at his word, and who can, this man should be fired! He said that he thought that any NFL owner who did not fire one of the players who took a knee was not doing their Duty. He is the president of the United States he should know every word to the national anthem, I do.

The 24 most grotesque lines from Jake Tapper’s Stephen Miller interview – CNNPolitics

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

Okay, the Golden Globes are over and yes Oprah should be president. Now let’s get back to reality.

Watching Stephen Miller interview with Jake Tapper on CNN is truly a grotesque political performance. It’s amazing he never said Heil Trump. I rarely ask that my readers go to the link that I comment about but this time I’m asking you to do so because it lists 24 misstatements that are the exact reason why this white house is so toxic. Is this White House a cult? It’s really frightening. And it’s important that we make sure that our voices are heard loudly.

Steven Miller had to be escorted off the set of CNN’s Jake Tapper show. Can you remember when this happened under any other president? I can’t and I’m 63. It’s a Cavalcade of clowns and you know how frightening clowns can be.

Bannon backtracks on Trump Jr. criticism, affirms loyalty after getting heat – NBC News

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Steve Bannon aka the Grim Reaper, likes to think of himself as a master political operative. In fact he’s nothing but a political hack. He let the stories go for as long as he thought it could damage the president and then pulls back because he saw his backing crumbling underneath his feet. There’s no loyalty in this man other than to himself. He’s not loyal to our country he’s loyal to his ideology of white supremacy and hatred for all those that don’t look or think like Steve Bannon.

It’s amazing how he let the quotes that the actions of Don Jr were treasonous let fly through the Airways for almost a week but now it’s saying that Don Jr is a loyal American. Loyal Americans do not meet with Russians trying to get election dirt on a political opponent. We leave that to Vladimir Putin not to the son of the president of the United States. No one in that white house with any power is loyal to anyone but themselves.

What scares me the most is not the fact that there may be hey Mike Pence presidency. What scares me the most is that there may be a Paul Ryan presidency. Mike Pence has hands as dirty as anyone else in that white house. Let us not forget that he was in charge of the transition and he knew everything that was happening in that white house because the chief of staff reince priebus was a useless tool. All this talk about the 25th Amendment is making Paul Ryan very happy. Paul Ryan would be next in line after Mike Pence. Paul Ryan thinks that he can get reelected in 2020 if Trump and Pence are out of the way. If there ever has been a so-called Antichrist figure to me it’s Paul Ryan. He scares me to death. His Charming good looks hide someone who wants to destroy the entitlements of our country and its government. 

The one thing that really bothers me about this talk about deficits is that I don’t know anyone. And I don’t understand why United States need to worry about deficits when in fact we enjoy the highest credit rating. Let’s worry about the waste in the defense department before we worry about hurting those who have paid into Social Security and unemployment insurance. Enough is enough.

Trump at Camp David: ‘Everything I’ve done is 100 percent proper’ – POLITICO

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

I guess this is going to be my theme today. If someone says they’re not crazy perhaps they are. If someone says they’re not a criminal then perhaps they are.

I wish I could say that everything I have done is 100% proper. I can’t and I don’t know of anybody who really could.

I guess we finally got our “I am not a crook” moment from 45. The last president who said this did not last very long in office. 

I hope they take a picture at Camp David with all of the GOP cronies smiling to their fearless leader so that we can use it to defeat them in their reelection campaigns.

Trump says he’s a ‘very stable genius’ amid questions over his mental fitness – NBC News

Tags

The only genius I know that keeps saying he’s a genius is the fictional character Sheldon on Big Bang Theory. Geniuses don’t talk about their intelligence. I never heard Albert Einstein ever say that he was a genius and I am sure the list goes on and on.

Also what is the president of the United States doing at 4:30 in the morning tweeting and rambling on and on? I almost prefer that he would go golfing again. He does that more than governing. He has created a Ship of Fools around him and is trying to sink our country. I am so tired of this weapon of mass distraction that is known as Trump.

To the dismay of his detractors, President Obama is still the most admired man in the world. As much as the current occupant of the White House tries to destroy his legacy, in the end President Obama’s agenda will prevail. I am looking forward to this interview with David Letterman coming on Netflix. And by the way why does David Letterman have such a long beard?

Trump World frustrated, angry over new book | TheHill

, , , , ,

How do you say circular firing squad in a way that the current occupant of the White House could understand? From what I am reading he doesn’t seem to understand much of anything. We have an incompetent and deranged man theoretically running the country. He’s running the country, he’s running the country into the ground. And it turns out that his so-called Chief strategist and the CEO of his campaign allowed author wolf free access to the campaign and three months in the White House. What idiots.

It’s our civic duty to buy this book and tell everyone we know to do so because let’s be honest every issue of this book that goes out is another dagger into this charlatan we unfortunately call our president.
