Someone told me that Trump just boasted to the leader of Pakistan that Puerto Ricans love him because he brought the Miss Universe Beauty Pageant to the Island.  

trump is just a con businessman/real estate operator from New York City.

He's been elected to the highest Office of the land but his behavior, priorities and his worldview haven't been altered.

WATCH: President Trump says that he could win the 18-year Afghan War in 10 days,

because he has plans that could wipe Afghanistan off the face of the Earth and kill 10,000,000 people,

but "I don't want to go that route."

:blink:

What a looney toon!

‘It’s a disaster over there’: Commerce reaches new heights of dysfunction

Under Secretary Wilbur Ross, the department is chaotic and adrift.

 

..... “With our ongoing trade wars and the census looming, Commerce needs functional leadership to be effective, and right now they just don’t have it,” ....

“He’s sort of seen as kind of irrelevant. The morale is very low there because there’s not a lot of confidence in the secretary,” said a former outside adviser to Commerce who is still in touch with many employees at the department. “He’s not respected ....

“Because he tends to fall asleep in meetings, they try not to put him in a position where that could happen so they’re very careful and conscious about how they schedule certain meetings,” said the former outside adviser. “There’s a small window where he’s able to focus and pay attention and not fall asleep.” .......

The Report of Iran capturing CIA spies is totally false. Zero truth. Just more lies and propaganda (like their shot down drone) put out by a Religious Regime that is Badly Failing and has no idea what to do. Their Economy is dead, and will get much worse. Iran is a total mess!

There’s a reason the government NEVER comments on such claims.

The next time an allegation goes unanswered, it will be assumed to be true.

And why give our adversaries ANY information on CIA operations?

Another instance of a twitchy Twitter finger trumping our national security.

:wacko:

I am pleased to announce that a deal has been struck with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy

- on a two-year Budget and Debt Ceiling, with no poison pills....

....This was a real compromise in order to give another big victory to our Great Military and Vets!

More spending. More debt. More failure of representation.

This “deal” reflects our broken process.

A few “leaders” dictate terms to everyone else. They don’t care how bad the “deal” is for America, as long as they maintain power. They then bribe and punish others to get it done.

:huh:

The Trump administration has finalized a plan

to bypass immigration courts

and deport undocumented immigrants who cannot prove they’ve been present continuously in the U.S. for two years or more

"Bypass the courts" has such a pleasingly banal ring to it

until you realize it means the very suspension of due process that spells the death knell of a democracy

Do illegal immigrants fall under a counties' democracy?       They can't vote.  They shouldn't be in the country.   

Suspension of due process that impacts CITIZENS spells the death knell of a nations' democracy.

What constitutional rights do undocumented immigrants have?

"....we must start with a more basic question–does the U.S. Constitution apply to undocumented immigrants?

“Yes, without question,” said Cristina Rodriguez, a professor at Yale Law School. “Most of the provisions of the Constitution apply on the basis of personhood and jurisdiction in the United States.”

Many parts of the Constitution use the term “people” or “person” rather than “citizen.” Rodriguez said those laws apply to everyone physically on U.S. soil, whether or not they are a citizen......"

I knew that illegal immigrants have constitutional rights (and they should). 

Anyhow,  I now see that this overall question relates to a comment Trump made about no hearings \ court cases.    

Another bone-head move by Trump;   The issue wasn't having hearings but that Dems still are against deportation after a hearing denies the request and \ or orders deportation.

 Therefore Trump was an idiot for saying there should be no hearings.   Instead he should have said that his Admin will enforce the results of a hearing.

When the Constitution was drawn up, there was only the original 13 colonies.  Doubt if they knew how much the country would eventually expand and the issues with immigrants from the 19th century to today. The Lewis and Clark expedition was still about 30 years away. If our fore fathers had a crystal ball, maybe it would had been worded differently.

I assume Barr and Mueller had some off-the-record discussion in the last few days,  and Mueller told Barr that he would address some of the 'issues' he said publicly he would NOT address.     Otherwise why would Barr publicly order Mueller to limit his testimony?
