Trumps tweet apparently referred to 3 other Representatives who were born in the US including AOC who right now is trying to get Nancy Pelosi replaced as speaker.

Apparently today he is digging in.

Big ICE crack down this weekend seemed to spur more protests than deportations.

Trump apparently using his pen to try and limit asylum.

Some talk of asylum seekers being housed in Guatemala.

That might slow things down. Of course usual suspects will sue.

Impeachment resolution fails by a lopsided vote.

AlGreen got his 15 minutes of fame.

Dunning Kruger effect may explain Trump’s support.

Trump supporters are too stupid to know they are wrong. But Psychology Today says it with bigger words.

Trump is no fiscal conservative. Or conservative for that matter but the spending really aggravates me.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/white-hous ... 1563799484
The deal for more than $2.7 trillion in spending over two years
Does the Constitution still exist?

Rappers Mom is very grateful for Trump’s attempts to help her son be released from jail in Sweden for videotaping a fight between his bodyguard and the two men who attacked him and then posting it on line.

Not sure if the two men who attacked his bodyguard were Muslim as that would trump his being African American in Sweden.

I said it during the general election, and I'll say it again now: POTUS only has so much power, and that power is fleeting. Any given president can only do so much damage in office.

The real power of the presidency that I cared about when I cast my ballot back then was the selection of Supreme Court justices. The economic decisions made in a president's term pale in comparison with the legacy left behind in the SCOTUS.
With her, we knew how bad it could be, and with him, we had hope that he'd do well. On election day 2016, the devil we didn't know was better than the devil we did with respect to picking the next Supremes.

With this criteria, The Donald has done well by my reckoning. His two SCOTUS picks so far have been philosophically more aligned with me than ANYONE the harridan trollop (thanks TAM) would have selected.
Yeah, I wish he were a better supporter of the 2A, but he's certainly better than both his predecessor and his competition.

Sure, I wish he'd lay off the twitter account. But then again I remind myself that I HATE political correctness, and I should embrace this first non-PC president's ways. And then I turn the other cheek and remember that Gorsuch and Kavanaugh are gonna be on the court for at least two more decades!

Trump declares win in Mueller hearing today at congress.

“Not in my preview” reason Mueller didn’t investigate anyone but Trump and Trump staff.

Mueller has to have Shejack repeat her question 3 times.

Rapper participated in the fight rather than just videotaping. I guess it is only one man rather than two. But yes, the man who attacked them was Muslim which trumps the rapper being African American in Sweden. The rapper has been arrested and faces 6 years in jail.

Trump lashes out at PM of Sweden who says he could do nothing. This says 2 years in jail.

Times take on the Mueller's testimony. No impeachment, but vote him out in 2020.

I remember being a fan of Time in the '70's and '80's, even subscribing. It was a good source for news and analysis.

How times change.
