re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

I feel like had someone asked a question about it, Trump would have totally endorsed Duterte style roving vigilante death squads on the hunt for Drug Dealers. Coming to A&E Tuesdays at 9 Eastern 8 Central!

If he's nearly out of office or he's in some deep **** by the time they get the case, SCOTUS won't bother overruling it. That way they don't have to do mental gymnastics to rule the other way when the next president declares the climate emergency or whatever.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

What will be worse is 2020 where Trump calls a national emergency regarding voter fraud to delay the election until he somehow gets rid of it entirely, leaving America with Dictator Donald Trump.

At that point, ICE becomes the SS, immigrants in their control get summarily executed, Nazi America is born and Canada starts complaining about Americans sneaking into their country taking their jobs.

I think if you did a poll many would support the death penalty for drug dealers.

Not saying I agree 100% with it ….

Calexit will be a thing in the 2020s. Might see the same thing with a good lot of the Northeast.

No they don't.

The percentage of people even paying attention is probably (like our president, pulling numbers out of my ass) maybe 30%. Probably split those 15% a side red and blue. For most people, this is all just a pile of bad noise that doesn't affect their lives in any sort of meaningful way.

Not saying that is how it should be, but that's how it is. I mean, 40% of the population didn't even vote in 2016.

i guess it depends on your definition of many? pretty sure the most recent polls have support in general at 54%. which is an uptick from 2016 where it dipped below 50%

pew polls on "do you support death penalty for dealers that sold drugs resulting in an overdose?" came back at like 71% against.

I just missed being decapitated twice on my way to work today by MS-13. There were Mexicans jumping on the hood of my car like the Walking Dead. The emergency is real, bros.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

From Slate:

Many observers have reacted, reasonably, with alarm. Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are calling the move, which rests on the flimsy premise that the current state of affairs at the border is a unique and urgent crisis, a “lawless act” and a “gross abuse of the power of the presidency.” Others have pointed out that declaring a random emergency and overriding the legislature whenever it’s convenient is a hallmark of dictatorships around the world.

On the other hand, Trump has often announced plans to do things that never happened because he literally got bored and wandered off to watch TV.

• He outsourced Obamacare repeal to Republican ideologues who came up with a bill so unpopular that they couldn’t pass it despite holding both the House and the Senate. He periodically makes noises about trying repeal again but it never goes anywhere.

• He claimed to be ready last October to eliminate the fundamental principle of birthright citizenship via executive order. Hasn’t happened.

• He spontaneously announced in December that U.S. troops would be leaving Syria in such a way that could have exposed our allies in the region to being massacred, but it hasn’t happened yet.

• Earlier this year he said he was willing to shut the government down for “years” to get the wall built, but gave up after a month.

So, I guess, thank God he's a lazy, addled POS and that someone (pretty much anyone) with a speck of ambition or political ability could have done a lot more damage.
