  • No legitimate reason to oppose him. He's a textualist and originalist, what a SCOTUS member should be.

    Agree that dems would do well to pick another battle.

    Yes, I agree too, but we all know that they won't be able to help themselves. They will pick this battle and they will lose. They are not yet able to come to grips with the new reality. Some of them never will, but I think at least some will. They have already lost the Supreme Court for at least a generation (if not 2 or 3). They already lost the House, the Senate, and the States. What else is left to lose? Their minds? Sadly, no. That happened a long time ago.

    "The Dems may want to save their energy for something more winnable. In fact, they might do themselves more harm trying to fight this one."

    Steve, I know this isn't winnable for them, but I really can't think of anything else that is either. At least in the foreseeable future. As long as they want to do themselves harm, lets not encourage them to stop. OK?

  • Well in less than 2 weeks Trump has managed to insult prime minister of Aurtralia,threatened to invade Mexico and create historical mass protest in the streets of America.There is a petition in Brittian signed by 1.7 million to cancel his trip there.So much for respect for us around the world and insulting our allies.Bannon and Flynn can not wait to go to war not to mention the botched attack that killed an American soldier.

    I just think it is nice of us to pay the libs a living wage for doing whatever non-productive thing they decide to do. It gives them the opportunity to seek fulfillment in life without actually having to work for it. But when they use that opportunity to do stuff that is diametrically opposed to what they claim as core beliefs (inclusion, tolerance, freedom of speech, freedom of religion[like they have "religion"], being for the "real" people) it gives me pause. Is it maybe time we did them the favor of actually making them grow up and live in the real world? That is an interesting question that could no doubt be debated for ever. But as they say on the net, that is a "mute" question. They need to pull up their big boy and big girl pants and get on with the real world because it is bearing down on them like a freight train. I guess they are the only ones that don't see that light at the end of the tunnel headed their way. If they don't get on board, they will be cut to shreds and their legacy will be a sad footnote in the dustbin of history. Almost as bad as obummer's.

  • Trump allows for minor easing of Russians sanction.Let me guess,it will probably be the companies he has investment in.He is not ruling out military action against Iran.I say put his sons on the front line.

    I can not believe he actually asked for prayer for Apprentice ratings at the prayer breakfast.

    -- Posted by lets be real on Thu, Feb 2, 2017, at 1:22 PM
  • The change in sanctions was to alleviate an unintended consequence of the original sanctions, and was probably in the works before Trump took office.... I am no fan of Trump, but the alternative facts of one side are no better than the alternative facts of the other.

    Just out of curiosity, I have a question for you people out there on the left. And Laz, I know you are a conservative, but this is also for you. Does it burn you guys butts to know that someone like Milo, who should be a poster boy for your cause, is actually firmly ensconced on our side? As far as the Prayer Breakfast goes, at least Trump didn't waste his time b*tching at Christians over something they did centuries ago after being egged on by the muslims. On a brighter note, I have not seen any reports yet of democrats killing any groundhogs today. Of course, the NYC media could just be covering it up again.

  • I see no reason to oppose this gentleman but then again it seems everything this administration is going to do will be controversial.Working up in Nashville,I'm starting to see a huge division being fueled by instigators and just plain immaturity. My questions to everyone one are,where is the anger and rage against sex trafficking,the drug situation,government officials thinking they are above the law,the high level of poverty in our nation,the health care crisis,the sense of entitlement and the violence and riots?I feel that we as Americans are failing to remember what we are,who we are and what we will be.I for one am doing my part by helping with historical places,being a good citizen,leading by example and finally teaching gun safety at my events to help prevent children from becoming statistics.

  • Well you can forget about gun safety ,background checks for SS recipients mentally incapable of their own affairs law has just been repealed.Repubs lawmakers criticize regulations reinforce negative sterotypes that people with mental disorders are dangerous.Anyone on this blog want their mentally ill neighbor or Grandpa to own a firearm? Way to go Trump and repubs as far as making America safe again.And if that don't kill you the coal mining law that makes companies clean up the mountain tops to prevent falling into the water will.Coal regulations for this is being repealed also.Making America safer is not as important as the NRA filling the GOP.s pockets.

    Coal miners Trump will never bring back your jobs,but he will contaminate your drinking water and cut off your black lung benefits.

  • Trump is more concerned about dress codes in the white house than getting proper prep before sending our military into harms way.This is what happens when you think you are too smart for daily briefings,you have botched military raids.He is obscessed with appearrances except for Bannon.He looks as if he has been on a 3 day bender.He wants all the women staffers to wear dresses,and probably with crotchless panties that would give him easy access for grabbing.

    This should not offend anyone since it was acceptable when Trump said it.

  • Conway said "they were radicalized and were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre".Now to say they were radicalized and the masterminds behind the Bowling Green terrorists makes no sense at all.They only mention misspoke when fact checked or it is the medias fault when they lie to the American people.She even went as far to say no one reported it.

    Looks like the Repubs are not to happy about financing the Great Wall,they will after Trump threatens them.

    They were indicted and subsequently pled guilty to federal terrorism charges.

  • Ascfor financing the border wall, CNBC says it will cost $120 per household, or about a month of what the junk called obamacare costs.

    I'll gladly send in my donation, and I'd happily quadruple it if the wall went around California.

    -- Posted by quietmike on Fri, Feb 3, 2017, at 4:50 PM
  • If you say people can not afford Obamacare how can they afford $120 more.Trump should pay for the wall since he lied to his followers at his rallies.I know they have not forgot"Whose going to pay for the wall" and their chant "Mexico will". What is more frightening is they don't care if he lies.

    Now, now. Come on guys, don't worry about paying for the wall. Not going to cost nearly as much as they thought. Trump is going to build it with all the bricks the snowflake libs have been defecating lately. Which brings to mind a word of warning. You libs need to pace yourselves in your rioting. It has only been 2 weeks, and Trump hasn't even got to the good stuff yet.

    -- Posted by fair share on Fri, Feb 3, 2017, at 7:32 PM
  • Not worried about the wall because it ain't going to happen.

    Well I guess Trump is getting to the good stuff.And one of them is a botched raid in Yemen.Another one is putting pressure on the pentagon to put out a 10 year old video to show what was suppose to be the success of raid in Yemen.I will bet this will be Obamas fault also. Trump stated Hillary was sleeping during Benghazi,he went to dinner after giving an order to raid in Yemen by putting troops on the ground killing 1 and injuring 3 others.Not to mention killing women and children.

    First we have alternative facts,then misspoken massacres and now video up load mistakes.This is what you get when a president surrounds himself with Bannon and his son in law instead of experienced officials who knows what they are doing.But his zombies will call it fake news. I use to have trouble understanding how Hitler brainwashed so many people but I am beginning to see how.Trump tells them to only believe what he tells them and every thing else is fake.Then you silence the media or shut them up as Bannon said.Trump can't silence the majority and they will continue to protest.Keep speaking up America.

    Brainwashed? Lol.

    Look at the dummy liberals on the last couple of threads.

    Knowing Trump personally named the countries affected by the immigration ban, except he didn't.

    He said he was going to address immigration. He has.

    He said he was going to cut bureaucracy. He has.

    He said he was going to build a border wall. He's started the process

    He said he was going to reign in and replace obamacare. He's started that as well.

    There will be no funding for the wall.

    They have no plan to replace Obamacare.

    His immigration ban is a wreck and has angered the world and our allies.I am ashamed to have a president that tweets about what is going on in America.

    Now we are having to pay for Trumps sons to do business in foreign countries using the secret service.People complained when Michelle Obama using air force one.

    We have a president that will probably be banned from every country but Russia.

    He can't claim he was misquoted by the press. He can't say his words were taken out of context. Having a 140 character limit, means he has to make his point succinctly.

    Now he says that America is on the same moral level as Russia,this is unamerican. He has no problem with Putin killing anyone who disagrees with him or taking over other countries.Putin is his idol.this is chilling.

    His executive orders will make the rich richer and the poor poorer.He reversed a law to prevent bankers from charging outragous fees to make themselves richer and grandma poorer.They no longer have to put the clients interest first. How long will it take for his supporter to see this.

    Slavery

    Jim Crowe laws

    Tuskeegee syphilis experiments

    The genocide of the American Indian

    Mk Ultra

    Cointelpro

    Supporting the overthrow of South American governments so bananas would remain cheap.

    Now he is telling our military that the media is under reporting terrorism,probably the Bowling Green Massacre.I can not believe he is still talking about how good he did in the election to the military.He still can not get over losing the popular vote.

    If Obama destroyed our allies,slammed America and praise Putin,equate us with Russia he would be thrown out of office.

    The vetting process for immigrants must be working since we were safer under Obama. Their vetting is more extensive than vetting for Trump's cabinet picks.

    -- Posted by lets be real on Mon, Feb 6, 2017, at 9:27 PM
  • *

    This is even too mean for me. I am beginning to think LBR is getting all her news from SNL.

    How do you figure we were safer under Obama? If I remember right, that is when we had all the beheadings, and killings at our schools, Military Post, Recruiting Buildings, Movie Theaters, Bars and night clubs, Christmas Party, illegal aliens killing Americans, Bombing in America, and all the Black Lives Matter killings of the law enforcement officers and patrol men and women, and I am sure I didn't mention some that happened under your Obama watch!

    How many people have been killed since Trump has been president? I only know of one soldier being killed in a raid in Yemen. That is the cost of war.

    Trump had nothing to do with that killing. He only okayed the mission that he was told was ready willing and able to do the job.

    Hell, look at the bright side of it. These seals killed more terrorists with their small arms weapons than Isis terrorists that Obama could kill with hours of bombing with precision bombs. The man was a loser from the word go.

    Obama spent money left and right on supporting the Terrorists and Muslim Brotherhood.

    Trump tells it like it is.

    You think dropping two Atom bombs on a small county like Japan wasn't evil? Just how many people were killed by American leaders by those two bombs, not to mention the side effects too horrible to talk about.

    Did you not watch the Shock and Awe when Bush invaded Iraq? He used Iraq as a dumping grounds for most of our old out dated bombs and a testing grounds for stuff we never knew we had.

    What about Syria? Obama and his coalition (that the crazy American people claim we MUST have to help us beat Isis) bombed Syria towns and villages and the innocent people living in them. Remember the Hospitals they bombed over and over again that the Americans built for the Doctors Without Borders, killing doctors, nurses, aids, and patients be treated. Plus destroying the hospitals as well. I don't think Trump was President when Obama was doing that.

    What right do we have to go into foreign countries and bomb their country just because we don't like the ruler?

    Putin made it clear that Assad was staying in power, yet Obama kept arming and training the Rebels as Putin was bombing them. Where are the CIA trainers we sent into Syria to train the Rebels. Did any get to come home? You never hear anything about that.

    Trump runs for office and half the country goes completely nuts. Just the name Trump makes them brain dead. What president ever had that kind of power over the idiots?

    They not only protested and rioted and destroyed as well, but only one man was killed in the rioting, and that was by another rioter.

    Several of the previous Presidents banned immigrants from coming into our country and deported millions, yet when Trump says that is the only way to stop the terrorism, the Brain Dead leftist Americans protest our safety in our own country.

    They preach gun control to make it safer then allow people who say they hate Americans and want them dead, to enter our country without vetting them.

    Two Federal judges just opened the gates to any Isis or other terrorist to come into our country in the next couple weeks without being search, vetted or patted down.

    The left really believe they are making it safer for Americans in our own country.

    The Vetting of immigrants isn't working because the 2 judges stopped the vetting. Now we will get to watch the murderers come in and run over top of the lefties living in the sanctuary cities,of which Nashville is one of them.

  • The 7 countries banned did 0 attacks on american soil.Saudi Arabia,egypt,Russia and Pakistan are some of the countries that sent killers to America and are not banned,can you explain that? I can because trump has business dealings with these countries.Nine out of ten of the situations you listed above were done by american citizens.I meant we were not attacked by foreigners on american soil.The percentage of americans killed by illegal aliens is very small as compared to killings by white males in america,and that is a known fact.

    A fact in your mind would die of loneliness.

    Hispanic is not a race, but an ethnicity. A person can, and often is, listed as white with a hispanic ethnicity.

    Then there is the problem with population. Whites are the majority in the US, so it would be expected that whites commit the most crimes, including murder. But when you account for population and look at murder rates, a very different picture is seen.

    Again,knowing you are allergic to logic let me clue you in on a few facts.

    First the budget wasn't cut. Obama didn't get the full amount of increase he wanted, but there were no cuts.

    Even liberal politifact says your goofy assertion is bogus.

    Further the Aviano base in Italy is less than two hours away from Libya, nevermind any carriers that could have been closer, so the resources were there to provide support, but the order was never given.

Personally, I think it is a choice. If she was just stupid, I would think she would have learned something recently on the blogs. Since she chose not to learn anything, I would suspect that she really does have a learning disability, or perhaps is maybe just an a-hole---knowing better but choosing not to do better.

    The nice thing is, I have a blast in my little village where LBR doesn't come around. people are pleasant to each other no matter what is happening. Maybe it's in the Twilight Zone where all the people get along. I joke and cut up with everyone and just have a lot of laughs or just simply say how are You? to everyone I meet on the street. If I'm not opening doors for someone, someone is opening doors for me. All the hate stays on the Blogs.

    That doesn't change the fact that 50% of the population in America is Brain Dead.

    I am an old man and I have never heard of an Appeals Court that wasn't a court, but 3 judges in three different States hearing cases over the telephone. What the hell kind of court system is that? You can't argue your case over a telephone. That needs to be done face to face in a court room.

    Congress needs to hurry up and get Judge Neil M. Gorsuch approved so the Supreme Court can rule in the matter of our security in America.

    The Supreme Court has already interpreted the Constitution, it's just a matter of explaining it to the lefties.

    The States are saying Trump is violating the rights of Businesses and citizens, but not the state. In other words, (injuring these people and businesses). Only the injured parties can bring charges against Trump, so as it stands no one has the standing in court to try Trump.

    You can not sue a Sovereign in his own court without his permission. Trump has to okay a court hearing or there must be a sworn affidavit from some one who was injured or received property damage by Trumps actions (if they are not legal actions).

    The federal judges had no authority to stop the executive order allowed by the POTUS.

    Since the Judges are Brain Dead also, it will be up to the Supreme Court to settle this immigration problem.

    Here's the thing! By the time the courts get around to solving this urgent matter, hundreds of terrorists can fly in to our country without being held for vetting, using the free pass by these two federal judges and the 3 appellate judges.

    These three appellate judges are suppose to be "Article III federal judges". That means that even though they are liberal judges, they are Constitutional Judges that must rule in favor of the Constitution.

    Who you gonna Call? The Ghost Busters? Not a funny situation to be in.

    Trumps ban was for 90 days. It will take longer than that to solve the legal battle between the left and the right. How many Isis will come in between now and then or anyone else for that matter. Oh well, it's back to joking and cutting up Tomorrow.

    Sounds like the muslims had decided they had killed enough of us after their last attack, at least until Trump started talking about making us safe. And those of you who truly believe that, please contact me. I have a bridge in Brooklyn I would like to sell you.

    lbr, If you knew what you were talking about, you would know that there is no ban on Muslims at this time.

    The Judges have stopped the ban so anyone from any country can enter the United States without being vetted.

    Isis is composed of Muslims! Why would you ban French, Germans, irish, Chinese, Japanese, english, etc.? It is the Muslim population you have to vet to make sure they are not Isis. Muslim is a people and Islam is their main religion, although many believe in other religions. Nothing wrong with a Islam religion as long as it isn't forced on Americans violating our religious rights.

    Mexico and Canada are just across our borders so we have to stop illegal aliens from coming across our borders illegally into the United States.

    Now we have Un-American people right here in our own country who hate Trump and people who support him. These people are rioting and just steps away from being terrorists themselves. They don't realize they are actually tuning against the United States, JUST LIKE THE SOUTH DID DURING THE CIVIL WAR. They were labeled "the enemy to the United States" by rebelling against the United States over the 13th and 14th amendments.

    Their PROTEST tuned into an insurrection against the US Gov. The southern states lost their voting power in Congress, allowing the U.S. Gov to become a Sovereign power over them and the 14th amendment citizens. The southern states were reinstated as sovereign states after the other states ratified the 14th amendment.

    ***

    18 U.S. Code § 2383 - Rebellion or insurrection

    Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

    ***

    That is what the 14th amendment is all about, giving power and sovereignty over a people, at that time these 14th amendment citizens were freed black slaves and people living in US Territories who were mostly black people.

    The U.S. doesn't have sovereignty over the white people, but mainly the blacks and other immigrants. That is why I don't argue against the white people being privileged.

    Think about this!

    If immigration is so important to America, how many foreigners do you think will want to come to America to live if we allow terrorists inside our borders?

    Didn't think about that did you?

    If what lbr said is true and the white people are killing more Americans than the terrorists, why would anyone want to move to our America? She just doesn't make any sense!

    3) On a slightly less troublesome note, looks like the Senate squaw from Massachusetts went off the reservation last night and had to be shut up with some obscure senate rule.

    4) The leftist anti-American judges that are putting us at risk by trying to legislate from the bench should be interrogated for a few months at Gitmo to determine whether or not they are colluding with the enemy.

    Research tells us that blacks have killed more whites and blacks than any whites or muslims.

    Now you think Trump must send his kid to the school of YOUR choice? What happened to the constitution that allows you to send your child to the school in your district? If she doesn't live in the Washington, DC District, she can't send her son to that school. Just proves to you that Trump isn't any ordinary President! When will you get that through your thick skull?

    Why would you say the Military will have to stay at Trump Towers if his wife is living there?

    That would be a blatant violation of the 3rd amendment to the U.S. Constitution, UNLESS she approves it.

    Michelle and Obama don't live at the White House now and I'm not furious about it. In fact, I kinda like it. They live down the road in a house that Obama had a wall built in front of it to protect him from the Trump people.

    I see where Judge Neil M. Gorsuch has bad mouthed Trump already. Didn't take him long to turn on Trump after he was appointed by Trump. Oh well Trump has Jeff Sessions Approved as the AG. Now he can get things done. Maybe A.G. Sessions can refresh the law for those 5 judges who don't seem to know what the Constitution says, means and does.

    And if that is not enough Trump read secure documents about N Korea in his resturant in FL with waiters serving.

    He is playing golf and only been in white house 3 weeks after complaining during campaign about Obama playing golf.

    How about saving us money and entertaining foreign leaders in white house like past presidents.And how much does it cost to fly air force one to FL?Andhow many times has he been after 3 weeks in office?

    According to Trump we have more voter fraud in New Hampshire with thousands of bus loads from Boston voting there illegally.There is no proof of this and I am still waiting on the executive order to investigate the 3 million he said voted illegally.He talks about people being registered in several states and dead people on roll.Several of his staff is registered in more than one state and I have never seen a dead person at the polls.
