The beginning of the police state? 

Trump Sending 5,200 Troops to the Border in an Election-Season Response to Migrants https://nyti.ms/2CRwsjp

 

This seems reasonable enough:

“We will not allow a large group to enter the United States in an unsafe and unlawful manner,” said Kevin K. McAleenan, the commissioner of Customs and Border Protection.

But if they are seeking asylum, by international law they must be allowed to enter in a safe and orderly manner and have their cases heard.

Trump wants to discard the 14th amendment to the Constitution. 

https://nyti.ms/2CPJcGU

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

What next? Reinstate slavery?

These migrants and "irregular entries" are covered by the lnternational Convention on migrants which the US signed. The term "irregular entries" comes from Article 68 as l remember.  The migrants are therefore under UN jurisdiction, that is why Mexico finally asked the UN for help. The migrants have rights and protections -like freedom of expression- under this Convention but de facto citizenship is not one of them. Review French immigration law and they also signed the Convention.

Sunday,11Nov18 Armistice Day/Veterans Day   100years

While Trump is in Paris, he tweeted about the deadly California wildfires Woosley Fire, Camp Fire, and the smaller fires. He got a lot of negative feedback. ln particular, it is claimed that Trump is not adequately informed and other expressions alleging ignorance.

10Nov18 (the Liberal) Los Angeles Times http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-camp-fire-science-20181110-story.html  "California's most destructive wildfire should not have come as a surprise"  This opinion piece discusses recent California fire history and says that the "problem" is rooted in "people throwing up their hands" rather than deal with it.

Trump is being ridiculed for referring to these as "forest fires" by politically motivated tweeters claim these are "grass fires" --which is not, of course, truthful as looking at any picture shows (more later). This is chaparral which is dense areas of dwarf trees and shrubs. Dwarf because these areas burn frequently and trees have little opportunity to grow. 

https://www.foxnews.com/us/trump-approves-emergency-declaration-for-california-as-wildfires-rage-across-state 

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/trump-draws-ire-firefighters-celebrities-tweet-about-california-fires-n934856  Now these fires may "have nothing to do with forest management" as the article proclaims, but as above, it does with building codes and residential zoning.

Fires are a natural part of California's ecology. The problem isn't forest management - or grassland management. The problem is lack of fire safety measures put into place by either ignorant or unscrupulous developers. 

Nonetheless, the residents are not at fault and there is this thing that leaders are supposed to have called empathy

And he was worried about getting rained on and so cancelled participating in the WWI commemoration ceremony. Poor sad pathetic little man - I get the feeling he cares nothing for our veterans and their families.

Supposedly, Trump has been a party in  lawsuits.

So why does Trump have such a wimpy legal team now, letting a Circuit Court run his gov't for him (and US). lIIegal Entry invaders are a foreign policy concern, not a federal court's.

https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/2015-08-18/withholding-judgment   by Jose` A. Cabranes

A federal court has no jurisdiction.

Trump should submit these 'excessives' to the Congress for impeachment and removal.

You may find the title slightly "slanted", but the article is not:

https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/no-collusion-by-trump-with-russia-shown-in-new-cohen-and-manafort-court-filings 

Those indicted are those that lied and showed no respect for the law.

No information on a Trump-Russia "collusion".

OPINE: As said in the Summer of 2016, Russian "policy" was/is A.B.C. =Anybody But Clinton  --just like many people in my neighborhood.

Open letter to Donald Trump’s stupidity:

‘You can ban me if you feel like you don’t need me.I’m just a professor in Connecticut.Of course, my lawyer might have a problem with it, so you’ll have to ban him as well. He’s a Muslim too, and spends his time fighting for human rights.

My doctor is also a Muslim; you’ll also have to ban him.He’s probably working a 30 hour shift at a downtown emergency room saving lives. You’ll have to ban the 3500 Muslims serving in the US Armed Forces.

You’ll have to ban shop keepers, engineers, and even journalists like my friend Mehdi Hasan.

You’d also have to ban Noor al-Zahra, an infant who came to the US a few years ago from Iraq for medical treatment for spina bifida.She turned out alright, and went back home, but you wouldn’t have let her in the country.

Muhammad Ali is also going to have to be banned. He’s the one you took a photo with, it’s all over Facebook.He’s also the one that demanded civil rights and equality in case you forgot.

There’s lots more of us you will have to ban, but only if you feel like you don’t need us.

Personally, I think you do need us.What else is there to your campaign except insulting Muslims and making people afraid of us?

Afraid of school professors, teachers, lawyers, scientists, doctors, business owners, journalists, service personnel, and countless others. Making people afraid of refugees – impoverished women and children – who themselves are victims of ISIS, is your only strategy, and you pursue it while you sit on your billions and in your pricey skyscrapers.

My recommendation to anyone who is afraid of Muslims, who is afraid of our beliefs, our practices, our culture – get to know one of us. We’re good people that want to live and succeed at life just like you. We mow our lawns on the weekend. We watch football on Sundays. We love pizza.

We’re different in other ways too. We don’t eat pork or drink alcohol. We have five daily prayers in Arabic, that we have to read throughout the day. Many of us have different foods and types of clothing.

Get to know us, I think you’ll like what you see. Plus you might make some friends out of it.’

Warning:  Some Adult Content

12Dec18

Yesterday, an opinion piece commenting on Cohen's sentencing today noted that claims of affecting the 2016 General Election in favor of Mr. Trump are really quite outlandish. The last half of this article --where the adult content is:  https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/columnists/robert-muellers-case-against-michael-cohen-has-very-little-to-do-with-trump-or-campaign-finance-violations 

Today, the 12th, the same paper mutes the "John Edwards Defense" -who ran with Sen Kerry as the Vice Presidential candidate- after Mr. Cohen's sentencing: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/trumps-john-edwards-defense-further-dissipates 

Yet, for  real hypocrisy see this from last year: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-edit-congress-sexual-harassment-hush-money-20171128-story.html

WARNING: Some Adult Content

Well today this got overhauled after the Senate passed the compromised reform measures.

The Congressional Accountability Act of 1995 --:hahaha:"What a misnomer!"-- handed out 268 payments of compensatory hush money over accusations of "sexual harassment".

The bill has been sent to President Trump for his signature.

https://thehill.com/homenews/house/421242-congress-sends-bill-overhauling-sexual-harassment-policy-to-trumps-desk 

OPINE:  Rush Limbaugh has been harping on these 268 payoffs all week and maybe before. l suspect this may have been an additional motivating factor for Congress.

During the sex scandals of the 70s with such names as Liz Ray & Wayne Hays  and "Fanny Fox" with Wilbur Mills, the American comedian Bob Hope said, "Now you know why they call it 'the House'."  Look up Elizabeth Ray for the humor in all of that.

Laugh or Cry ?

 :hahaha:   or  :cry:

http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2018/12/andrew-sullivan-americas-new-religions.html

Trumpism is a "cult". Displacing normal Christianity.

Who are Trump's followers? Quote: "Yes, many Evangelicals are among the holiest and most quietly devoted people out there. . . . They have tribalized a religion explicitly built by Jesus . . . They have turned to idols . . . He (Trump) may be the least Christian person in America, . . .".  This is just some from one paragraph.

OPINE: Anti-Trumpism has now reached a new level of desperation. This pathetic polemic is written in the sophomoric high school level, with mind stumping allusions to the opioid epidemic, Vladimir Lenin's political tactics, the me2 activism, Caesar, Churchill, Hitler and movie reviews. :ko:  Dribble. Slate magazine calls it "twaddle".

The author is Andrew Sullivan, Brit-born American and "conservative" commentator. He has blogged for several magazines, reportedly clashes with other conservatives and promotes gay rights.

dont u remember people getting fired and screenshots getting shared because thier comments against homosexuals are demeaning or they disliked feminists or if they expressed rightwing views?
many jobs would fire such persons because of political correctness and stores will not offer its services to the said person and then boom a news flash that the said person has been turned down or fired from etc etc job and his superior wouldbe presented as some type of a hero
i believe left wingers are retards and i m not a fan of them too because most of them are either hypocrites  or ignorant..alhamdullilah i m a conservative shia muslimand i believe in imamate and representative of imam.. 
Trumps coming into power is sort of a blessing because now many people are resorting back to rightwing viewsand they dont expect severe backlash now..like my views about homosexuals and feminists are clear and i dont have to resort to taqiyya, taweel or search some weak quote of a controversial scholar to deviate from topic or to palacate the opposite person

The real reason Donald Trump lies

http://en.abna24.com/news//the-real-reason-donald-trump-lies_924698.html

The real reason Donald Trump lies
 

The president’s greatest ambitions are neither financial nor political — they’re psychological, writes Stephen Grosz

We all lie, but we don’t lie like President Trump. He is the most extravagant, reckless, inexhaustible fibber of our era — the panjandrum of porky pies.

Because we all lie, we may be tempted to think we understand why Donald Trump does, or even that he lies for the same reasons we do.

He doesn’t.

Last April, a 34-year-old woman I’ve been working with for several years told me that she hadn’t been honest with me. “Not big lies,” Ms A said, “I just couldn’t tell you certain things.” It took us some time to understand why she brought herself to her psychoanalysis in this particular way.

Just curious, does anyone know the penalty for treason? I think it's execution or deportation. Is that correct? 

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United Statesor elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(2)(J), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)
 
If you are American, don't know where you would be deported too.... but Canada seems to be oft noted to be a default location for many, so that might be an option.  However, I would probably migrate before the charges were laid!

"Giving aid or comfort to the enemies of the US". Guess it would depend on the legal interpretation of "enemies".  The destabilizing part would probably cinch it though.

Since we're not currently at war, I don't think we have any official enemies. Russia has not usually been an ally in recent years. However, taking actions with intent to destabilize certainly does seem like an action of an enemy. 

And those destabilizing actions might turn out to be unrecoverable. At best, it'll take years or decades to recover.

May this woman never lose her optimism and spunk. She gives me hope for the future of this country. 

Believe it or not, a lot of our young people think like Miss Occasio-Cortez: that government exists to serve the people, not the corporations. 

The Trump people are mostly over 65. Eventually they will die off, if we can survive that long.
