Those things are all true, I think, but still that Palmer guy is a grifter, #Resistance conspiritard. Don't post his stuff except to mock him.

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

His complete lack of competence and ability to get anything done is trumps one redeeming feature.

I'm all for keeping those posts as empty for as long as possible.

Hoping we fade nuclear war in kashmir tho.

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

This could be #resistance conspiritard too, idk. At the least #FakeMelania is kind of redundant. Photoshop or real, I leave it to the forum.

Edit: wait, so video shows that was Melania with Trump touching the cross? Ok, I'll leave this here for future reference.

lol this basically already happened with Gorsuch. Republicans have a permanent lock on the supreme court for the rest of our lives unless dems get a supermajority + presidency.

None of this **** matters, only one side is playing to win.

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

DOJ Finds Letter Ordering Scrutiny of Uranium One, Hillary Clinton
After it claimed no such document existed, the Justice Department just unearthed a letter Matt Whitaker delivered to the Utah U.S. attorney directing a review of how the department handled the Clinton Foundation and the Uranium One issues.

Then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions wrote the letter on Nov. 22, 2017 for Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber. Matt Whitaker, who was Sessions’ chief of staff at the time, emailed the letter to Huber that day, writing, “As we discussed.” He also sent Huber a copy of a letter the Justice Department’s Congressional affairs chief sent to the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee on Nov. 13 of that year.

The existence of a letter documenting Sessions’ directive that the DOJ revisit probes of Trump’s top political foe is a surprise because a department lawyer said in court last year that senior officials insisted it didn’t exist. The liberal nonprofit American Oversight obtained the letter through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request they filed on Nov. 22, 2017––the same day Whitaker emailed Sessions’ letter to Huber.

The request asked for documentation of the directions Sessions gave Huber about the review of the Clinton investigations. After DOJ failed to produce any written directions, American Oversight sued.

And on Nov. 16, 2018, Senior Counsel in the Office of Information Policy Vanessa Brinkmann, who handles FOIA Requests, said a lawyer in Sessions’ office told her no such letter existed. That lawyer spoke with Huber and Whitaker, she said in a declaration filed in federal court, and then told her that “when the Attorney General directed Mr. Huber to evaluate these matters, no written guidance or directives were issued to Mr. Huber in connection with this directive, either by the Attorney General, or by other senior leadership office staff.”

That wasn’t correct. On Wednesday of last week, a DOJ lawyer told American Oversight that they had found the document that kicked off Huber’s work.

The letter, which American Oversight provided to The Daily Beast, is consistent with what the DOJ’s chief of legislative affairs has told Congress: that Huber is scrutinizing the sale of a Canadian uranium mining company with interests in the United States to Rosatom, a Russian state-owned company. Republicans have long alleged that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declined to oppose the deal because of contributions to the Clinton Foundation.

The DOJ hasn’t brought any charges related to the foundation or the transaction. Some Hill Republicans and conservative media commentators have long argued this is because the Department hasn’t sufficiently investigated it. They have called for the appointment of a special counsel to scrutinize the transaction.

Sessions didn’t bite. Instead, he directed Huber to review what the Department had done regarding the matter. Huber’s work has drawn significant interest but—unlike Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian influence during the 2016 election—there is scant public information about what fruits, if any, it has borne.

Some Republicans say Huber’s work is too little, too late. Democrats, meanwhile, argue it’s evidence of the Trump administration weaponizing law enforcement to target its political rivals.

“‘Lock her up’ was wrong at campaign rallies, and it’s even worse coming from the Department of Justice,” said Austin Evers, who heads American Oversight. “Even after this long, it’s still deeply shocking to see the black and white proof that Jeff Sessions caved to President Trump’s worst authoritarian impulses and ordered a wide-ranging investigation of his political opponents based on demands from Congress instead of the facts and the law.”

“It strains credulity to believe that the Justice Department didn’t know about this letter when they swore under penalty of perjury that it didn’t exist–you don’t exactly forget about a formal directive to investigate Hillary Clinton signed by Jeff Sessions,” he added.

“The fact that they only ‘found’ it the same week Matthew Whitaker was heading for the exit makes it hard to see DOJ’s previous denial as anything but a deliberate attempt to conceal the extent to which President Trump’s authoritarian demands were being put into action. The authoritarian instinct in the Trump administration needs to be investigated. Sessions and Whitaker shouldn’t escape accountability by skipping town.”

Yeah when I was a small yute the population was close to 200 million.

So many of those 158 million are 1st and 2nd generation immigrants. Imagine how bigly trump would be at employing people if he didnít spend every waking, non Big Mac mauling, hour trying to keep out hard workers.

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

They definitely aren't building a new wall. Just adding way too much razor wire to what currently exists.



It's supposed to be installed on the other side of the fence to keep people from climbing up in the first place. People can definitely get over that if they wanted to.

I say put up a giant Ninja Warrior course along the border and anybody who can pass the obstacle course without falling gets automatic citizenship.

blankets and ladders get it done.

Google Spanish Melilla Ceuta walls.

Multiple layers of fences, walls, barbed wire, watchposts, security guards and people are still climbing over.

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

Where there's a will, there's a way. Look at some of the creative ways Germans attempted to cross over into West Berlin. Whether it was a hot-air balloon, swimming across the Baltic Sea, or hiding under pig carcasses in a refrigerated truck, people made it across. And the Berlin Wall was no joke either.



That actually excludes the landmines and ignores the fact that prior to 1983, SM-70 antipersonnel directional mines were used and they were extremely effective. Here are the escape attempt stats from 1974 to 1979 as compiled by the East German government



At its peak, the Berlin Wall was the most heavily guarded area in the world, even more so than the 38th parallel. But that didn't stop people from trying to cross it and neither will any wall Trump authorizes.
