I know this is the oldest most boring game in the world, but imagine the utter 24-7 derposphere ****storm if Obama threatened to release 800 ISIS fighters.

What other choice does Trump have? Keeping prisoners locked up indefinitely without trial must surely be unconstitutional.

I actually agree.

But again, just imagine the derposphere if Obama was about to release 800 ISIS fighters - regardless of how much it did or didn't make sense.

Right-wing media would go nuts and the MSM would thoughtfully wring their hands and try to look for the nuance in both sides of the tough decision.

Meanwhile Trump can do it to zero pushback from either side and some guy named Jossue will get 5000% more media coverage, from right, center, and left media - during the same time span.

I'm so sick of living in this grand canyon-wide double standard.

That's fair enough - but not surprisingly it's quite a complicated problem to solve if we don't want them released as soon as they get "home".

What is Europe's approach to repatriating ISIS members?

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

And like 10 posters on Chiefsplanet. What are the odds?

The funny thing is I was born in 69. I still have a couple suzzer69 usernames floating around the internet. But I decided it looked ridiculous so I switched to 99. Glad I didn't pick 88!

I had shingles last year. It was just a 3 inch line on my chest just below my right breast bone. That **** hurt when I tried to type. I think I missed a day of work because of it, and I sit in an office chair all day.

While corvette got lucky with an extremely mild outbreak they can range up to extremely painful and debilitating. Not really a good reason not to get one once you reach the age of susceptibility.

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

No poll on 538 has him at 52% approval. Highest is Rasmussen at 50%. A weird lie perhaps, but it is true that his approval has seen an upturn in the last two weeks of about five points. Just another reminder that a large segment of the public is quite dumb. Five percent of American adults said "I now approve of the man I didn't like two weeks ago during the shutdown he caused for no reason. He is still the same person who caused a shutdown for no reason, he hasn't apologized or shown any reflection on the matter, he just declared a national emergency for no reason, but now I like him."

Do you remember the push back against Obama when he tried to close gitmo and move the prisoners to super max prisons within the country?

Going to be interesting to see if the Overton Window shifts back to where it was post Trump or if Merica has a new normal.
