I never took what Trump said to mean Mexico was going to be writing a check. That would have been pretty darned naive to believe, although we do have a generation of very simple humans among us now. I believe Mexico would be paying for the wall in less American dollars from drugs, illegals who send money back to circulate their economy and possibly a raised tariff or two.
The only way I see Mexico paying to build a wall is if huuuge amounts of illegal aliens started migrating back to their home countries.

Dale Blanker banned too. Wonder when they will show up again under different disguises? Or when Soros, Inc will send in new paid trolls?

What I find funny, is that Trump announced his Executive Order plans, and it barely got a ripple in the MSM. They are still working on blaming him for the Pittsburgh shooting, and the mail bomber. He really makes them work for their outrage. By the time they get heated up about the EO, he will be on to something else.

In either the most arrogant display of ignorance concerning the US Constitution, or the newest in a long line of absurd pronouncements to distract the populace just days before the mid-term elections, tRump proposes to end birthright citizenship protected in the 14th Amendment with an executive order... Yep, winning as only tRump knows how.
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa- ... SKCN1N41MD

I am not sure how name calling of The President bolsters your case but civil discourse is an altogether different topic. So to the topic at hand. The 14th Amendment does not establish in Constitutional verbiage birthright citizenship nor was it intended to. The only Supreme Court Ruling on the matter I am aware of is Elk vs Wilkins circa 1884 which clearly affirmed the status of the parents did in fact determine the citizenship or eligibility of the child. Keeping in mind when the 14th amendment was passed there was no such thing as an illegal immigrant established by legal language in the Federal Statutes. The citation if the 14th has been a fairly recent construct and frankly a misuse of the amendment. Much like the 2nd Amendment a quick reading of the historical background and writings of the authors can clearly establish intent and meaning. The 14th is no different and I offer you below the words of its' author. I hope that you will agree by both authors intent and SCOTUS ruling birthright citizenship has been a graceful concession but not Constitutionally protected. If you want to argue it should be that is an entirely different topic and would require an additional amendment or a revision of the 14th.

Senator Jacob Howard clearly spelled out the intent of the 14th Amendment in 1866, which was to define citizenship. He stated:

"Every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons. It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt as to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States. This has long been a great desideratum in the jurisprudence and legislation of this country."
TxHawk you will quickly realize that facts don’t make any difference to certain posters here. You’ve engaged one of them.

I love the irony in someone posting about Trump's lies and then supplies a link to WAPO. Same people also quote Huffpo and other leftist propaganda machines to support their positions.
I love the way some people dismiss an argument without addressing any of the issue raised. Such automatic dismissals used to be evidence of a closed mind and/or self deception... but in the current age it's more often referred to as Winning!
philbo, do you ever just get tired of being such a nasty, unhappy, unpleasant and un-neighborly hater?

This is why Taylor Swift matters. 102,000 youngsters have registered to vote since she started her campaign.
Young heads, full of mush.
Maybe so, but each of their votes count as much as yours or mine!
I was referring to the folks at CNBC. :biggrinjester:

Just because an organization (vote.org) dominated by women says all those votes were triggered by NotSoSwitft's tweet doesn't make it true. Dollar to donut says everyone involved in vote.org is a progressive. https://www.vote.org/team/

Taylor Swift ends her silence and comes out for the Democrats.
Wonder if she remembers the Dixie Chicks? Ask them how alienating your fan base enhances your career.

Otherwise, who cares what any "entertainer" thinks? Entertain me, otherwise shut up.

I will enjoy voting in a few weeks. Very much.

This was quite a show. Well, circus. I'm glad it's over.

Question.... Would any other President have had the cojones to see this through?
Much respect Mr Trump. :tiphat:
Every person who is shocked and ashamed at the behavior demonstrated by the socialists in Washington and throughout the country have to vote for their Republican choices on election day.

This isn't over. Ruth Bader Ginberg's days are numbered. Can you imagine what her replacement is going to go through...

I have a feeling I'm one of the few people who isn't politically charged by the whole Kavanaugh thing. As I watched this unfold for the past few weeks, I'm most amused by the political chess that's being played. Team Red just sat back and played every hand they were dealt calmly and professionally. Team Blue pulled out an ex machina card late into the game (clearly as a delay tactic) in order to keep Kavanaugh out. Their reasoning from what I can tell is to either force cancellation of his nomination or to delay it enough so that in the event a blue wave comes in November, they can just vote against him and have a more "compassionate" nominee take his place. Unfortunately for Team Blue, their ex machina card may as well be a 3 of clubs. There are so many problems with it that it's incredibly amusing to watch it backfire at Team Blue in every way possible. If people use their brains to dissect the situation, it will definitely spell the end for Team Blue. A new team with liberal ideologies will form, I'm sure, and they'll hopefully be less scary for everyone's sake.

Failures of ex machina card:

1. The primary punch the card has comes from an event three and a half decades ago. The odds of that memory being remotely accurate are very low. It doesn't matter how vivid the event was. Anyone with a little psychological background would know that episodic memories diminish with accuracy over time regardless of the impact that the event had on the subject. So those memories that Ford has are mostly false memories, as in memories that the brain filled in to make the actual episode make sense. The odds of it being accurate are next to none. Funny thing too. Ford, having a PhD in psychology, knows that.
2. No one corroborated with Ford. No one. Not like it matters. It was 35 years ago. But it sure doesn't bode well for Team Blue.
3. By design, since it was such a long time ago with no witnesses or video tapes or audio recordings or whatever, the card is literally a he-said-she-said game. Also with such a large gap between the supposed event and anyone hearing about it, there's no way anyone would be convicted of that crime no matter what public profile the defendant has. So what's the point?
4. By flipping one's vote or forcing someone to flip one's vote from yay to nay based on that kind of flimsy allegation is literally an assault to due process. Last I checked, people are innocent until proven guilty. Team Blue decided that due process has no basis anymore, and that rules are no longer required. Anyone who knows that and still supports Team Blue really needs to get a reality check.
5. Team Red didn't want an FBI investigation because it would waste too much time. Team Blue called them out for it and essentially went, "Just a week. That's all we need." Baaad move. Really? Just a week? That's a bad trap to fall into. Of course, that's exactly what Team Blue got: a week. Does anyone really think anything of value will appear in just 7 days?
6. The FBI unsurprisingly came back with nothing after their week. So what does Team Blue do? Call shenanigans and claim FBI partisanship. Yes. The same team that said the FBI was nonpartisan with its investigation of Trump's associates. You can't have it both ways, people.
7. Lastly, it looks like an all-out civil war is occurring with this political battle. Seriously. It really does look that way. Well, except only one side is fighting. Team Blue is no longer shouting and complaining. They are literally throwing crazy political punches like a whiny little brat of a kid trying to topple a stable government. It's embarrassing. Team Red is just looking and wondering what's going on. Have you noticed that? Team Red is literally doing nothing but watching Team Blue in a middle of a temper tantrum. No matter what the outcome of the Kavanaugh fight is, Team Blue will come out looking like a complete failure.
8. Bonus pointer: Team Blue is claiming Kavanaugh isn't fit to be a justice because of his temperament. Yup. It makes sense. No one who has endured such public scorn against himself and his entire family with such strong and villainous accusations should get upset. Uh huh... Kavanaugh should just go back to his day job that he's been doing successfully for, what, 20 years? Yeah! Go back to being a circuit judge! Who needs good temperament with that job! Sarcasm aside, I'd honestly be more concerned about him if he kept a level head during his interview about the sexual assault allegations. Emotionally blowing up only shows that he's a normal human like us and not a sociopath or someone with some other horrible mental illness.

Apologies to the folks here with left leaning ideologies, as the only team available for you to be on at the moment is about to crumble.
Well said sir!

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Paul_Stevens
Stevens was considered to have been on the liberal side of the Court at the time of his retirement.

Stevens is also known for his dissents in Texas v. Johnson, Bush v. Gore, D.C. v. Heller, and Citizens United v. FEC.
Texas v Johnson - Stevens believes desecration of US Flag is okay
Bush v Gore - Stevens thought Gore should be president.
D.C. v Heller - Stevens thought Dale Blanker, Philbo and the rest of us should NOT have Second Amendment rights
Citizens United v FEC - Stevens voted to allow the FEC to prevent airing of a negative film made about Hillary Clinton

So a former RINO, now known openly as a liberal, thinks a true conservative doesn't have the temperment? LOL.
Stevens never had to face the kind of vitriol and hatred thrown at Kavanaugh.
Who cares what Stevens thinks? He's just another tired old liberal trying to remain relevant.
