"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States AND of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
"
A tourist does not "reside". Reside is where you live. That's me pointing that out - not a lawyer or constitutional expurt.

Ann Coulter has a good take.

I guess constitutional rights apply to everyone in the world except for us, the US citizens.

A dozen migrants traveling by foot from Honduras to the U.S. to seek asylum filed a class-action lawsuit Thursday against President Trump, the Department of Homeland Security and others, claiming a violation of their due process under the Fifth Amendment.

It appears a large number of American’s support the destruction of our country.

I’m a nationalist.

President Trump has made 6,420 false or misleading claims over 649 days... In the seven weeks leading up the midterm elections, the president made 1,419 false or misleading claims — an average of 30 a day.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... 47a79e7f90

And then there is the most recent ethically challenged tRump appointee, Ryan Zinke, facing several claims of self dealing:
White House concerned Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke violated federal rules
https://www.washingtonpost.com/national ... 952ca8a07c

And on top of that is the most recent immigration dog whistle from tRump himself... after pushing the ad, he failed to note that it wasn't democrats who let this guy back in, but republicans. But, why let a few facts get in the way of perfectly drafted fear mongering ad?
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... e397b01b2d

But wait, there's more. Now tRump is wanting more troops to the border (where they are legally prohibited from engaging in police activites) and suggesting they have the authority to shoot anyone throwing rocks at them.

Quoting the leading DNC PR organization in order to slam Trump is quite commical.

Meanwhile... Unemployment at 3.7% wages rising faster than in the last decade, Democrats running in the midterms, are being outed by Project Vertitas, giving us all a good laugh. The "blue wave" will be those waving from behind prison walls.
The sun is out, the birds are singing, and the delightful sound of triggered snowflakes, fill the air.
I'm still not tired of winning.

Good! The military shouldn't engage in police activities in the USA nor "police actions" overseas. :clapping:

First and foremost, the military should defend the country from foreign invasion. The military may fight them "over there" so we don't have to face them here, but if they get here, fight the invaders on the border. If they overrun the borders (e.g. WW2 Eastern Front) the job of the military is to push them back. Kill or drive out the invaders.

That is the purpose of the military.
When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society,
over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it
and a moral code that glorifies it. - Frédéric Bastiat

Anybody who thinks a rock chucker shouldn't be shot, should volunteer to get hit by thrown rocks. Rocks can't hurt right? I mean there are no countries in the world that execute people by throwing rocks.

Stopping an invasion is not police actions.

Ah yes, but nothing else matters if we get our tax cut and our anti-abortion SCOTUS. I recall Dan Quayle being widely ridiculed in the media and by many in the general public, both in the U.S. and overseas, as an intellectual lightweight and generally incompetent. He may be best know for his misspelling of the word "potato". Now the president can say any old thing and it's all ok. It used to be that there was the 10% of people that were ill-informed or easily fooled but now the number is much higher. So much for science, morality, ethics, intellect, civility, truthfulness, even ideology (conservatives are leaving the GOP!) and our country.

Late night variety shows, especially Colbert and Meyers, go overboard in their humor about the president but they do help end one's day to not take our decline too seriously: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xEz1uSedEM :lol:
