U.S. President Donald Trump blasted the federal court system as “broken and unfair” on Wednesday after a judge from the heroic 9th Circuit blocked his administration’s vicious move to end the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals(DACA) program protecting young immigrants brought to the United States illegally by their parents.
Something in the federal system is broken and unfair, at any rate, and today, like every other day, we’re going to have to be talking about what.
We’re going to do what we always do, and have done for ten days short of a year now. Raise awareness of the fresh and daily travesties granted to us by the infinite wisdom of the president, and the ramifications they will have going forward.
What a lot of fun! I can’t tell you how pleased I am, every morning, to feel a sick pit of nerves in my gut every time I open up my computer, wondering what new horror the day is going to bring.
It’s like that for most Americans these days; earlier this year, a nationwide survey by the American Psychological Association showed clearly that a majority of both Democrats and Republicans are concerned about the future of the country.
This time, Trump has tried to use the lives of 200,000 people as currency to trade for that stupid wall of his, by threatening to end the aforementioned DACA program. He knows we’ll never agree to it, trying for it is just posturing.
Even Trump knows what an ineffective waste of time that wall would be. It was never really about building anything. It was just some cool-sounding thing he liked to say.
The wall has become a symbol of Trump’s entire failure of a presidency. It’s representative of all the things he thinks he wants to do, but hardly understands, and is ruining with his ignorance and bullying.
He says he wants a great country, a safe country, a prosperous country. So do we! Isn’t that what everyone wants? He’s got the power to do it, too. All he’s got to do is resign.
At 70 years old, it is plainly and simply too late for him to realize that the only way that that will ever happen, is by creating an environment where everyone has a place and a share in happiness. Healthy people will do healthy commerce. Healthy commerce means a healthy economy, and so on.
But Trump is so greedy. He picks out at random the people who he physically resembles- nearly all of whom also want nothing to do with him- and he says to the world, Only these people are important, only they matter, everyone else can be thrown out like the trash because they do not look like Donald Trump.
In effect, that works out to mean that everyone will actually have less, so that a few might feel they’ve got more than a few others. And one or two leeches and ticks at the top like Donald Trump will have basically everything.
And he meant it. He lies to other Republicans routinely, he uses them as tools and then throws them away. That’s why they’re retiring left and right, like both Ed Royce and Darrell Issa of California. Those two guys were lied to very badly indeed.
Trump told California Republicans that he would not end the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals(DACA) program, but he very nearly did it already.
He also lied to them and said that state marijuana would be respected and not interfered with, but Sessions rolled back the Obama-era instructions to leave state weed alone, three days after California announced its new recreational cannabis laws.
This kind of thing is why there are now 31 Republicans who will not seek re-election in November. 19 are retiring outright and another 12 have deluded themselves into running for higher office.
That list is expected to grow in the coming weeks.
There has never been something like this before, and many Republicans know it, even if they won’t say it out loud. The president himself is a probable traitor. He praises Putin, he asked for his help during the debates, and he does nothing to discourage our most hostile foe from presenting a gigantic threat not only to our democracy but to democracy worldwide.
Dianne Feinstein is labelled “Sneaky” and a criminal, for doing her job well, showing the world how the Republicans have been covering up for Trump as he covers up for Putin.
What has happened in this country, when following the precise dictates of the law has become something only outlaws do? When did patriotism become uncool? What has happened to the Republicans? Exactly when did the party of Ronald Reagan start letting the Russians waltz all over us?
Trump threatened Feinstein in the same bullying, childish tone about the “Tough Primary Challenge” she’ll be facing. It’s as if he’s saying, “Oh yeah, lady. That “Justice Democrat” (how much more do we need that these people are not on the level?)coming after you this year? It’s me you’re really up against.”
At the end of the day, California and other states put together a good lawsuit, and the Democrats came through for us again. In a victory for Dreamers, and all Americans, federal immigration authorities quietly announced they have resumed accepting requests for renewals in DACA.
“Until further notice, if you already applied for #DACA and it was expiring, this is your chance to reapply,” California Atty. Gen. Xavier Becerra tweeted Saturday night.
The government’s announcement was made without fanfare Saturday evening. This happy news came four days after a federal judge in San Francisco issued an order temporarily blocking the Trump administration’s decision to phase out the program.
Daddy Warbucks has been foiled again. That’s the only whole fair thing that ever happens anymore.
