He is not going to be a happy chappy. Did he think Presidents were above the law or something? I can;t see how putting it through the courts is going to change things, unless the actual order is modified in some way.

Kellyanne Conway 'counselled' for telling Donald Trump's supporters 'go buy Ivanka's stuff' in possible ethics violation

The Utah Republican congressman and Democratic Oversight Leader Elijah Cummings have jointly asked the Office of Government Ethics to review the matter. They said in their letter to the ethics office:


Conway's statements appear to violate federal ethics regulations, which prohibit actions that imply a government endorsement of the 'personal activities' of another person.

In this case, there is an additional challenge, which is that the president, as the ultimate disciplinary authority for White House employees, has an inherent conflict of interest since Conway's statements relate to his daughter's private business.

Breaking news: Appeals court has rejected Trump's Muslim ban

 

 

 

 

That would be the "so called" Appeals Court.  Terrible decision. Disappointing. Sad.  ;-)

 

 

 

 

Snicker! :)

I've got a confession.

 

I'm addicted to Trump.

 

I can't wait to turn to the news each morning to pick up on the next chapter.

 

Just like a page-turning novel.

 

Imagine how boring the world will be after he is finally impeached.

 

 

 

 

Me too. TV is so boring compared to this. If I weren't just genuinely afraid as well!

 

I'm listening to 1984 before bed, as an alternative to re-reading it but Trump's version of reality is just as enthralling if not more.

 

If you all want to listen to 1984 the whole thing is on youtube.

 

 

 

The Walking Dead is back on soon... can it compete? We'll see.

I am not wanting to be a pain and my enquiry is genuine but can someone please show a direct quote that Trump has said that he is banning Muslims, not Mr* reporting he said or such like. It is an important distinction.

 

 

According to the Washington Post report on the Appeal Court decision:

 

While the government chose not to rule directly on First Amendment grounds, it did dismiss the argument this was not a Muslim ban. The court found that “the States have offered evidence of numerous statements by the President about his intent to implement a Muslim ban"

 

If it is in the Washington Post, you have got to believe it.

Say what you like about Trumpy, but his looks and his actions make him a cartoonist's dream.

Baltimoresun.com: Ordinary Americans carried out inhumane acts for Trump

 

«A week ago, men and women went to work at airports around the United States as they always do. They showered, got dressed, ate breakfast, perhaps dropped off their kids at school. Then they reported to their jobs as federal government employees, where, according to news reports, one of them handcuffed a 5-year-old child, separated him from his mother and detained him alone for several hours at Dulles airport.

 

At least one other federal employee at Dulles reportedly detained a woman who was traveling with her two children, both U.S. citizens, for 20 hours without food. A relative says the mother was handcuffed (even when she went to the bathroom) and threatened with deportation to Somalia.

 

 

(...) these are, in normal circumstances, people who likely treat their neighbors and co-workers with kindness and do not intentionally seek to harm others. That is chilling, as it is a reminder that authoritarians have no trouble finding the people they need to carry out their acts of cruelty. They do not need special monsters; they can issue orders to otherwise unexceptional people who will carry them out dutifully.»

Kellyanne Conway is as slippery as a greased eel. Having seen her in action, I am actually impressed with her ability to squirm past every attempt to pin her down. That lady has a real talent for avoiding the truth. Good luck to any prosecutor who tries to nail her down in court.

 

 

 

 

 

 

That's the meth...

She has an honours degree in political science and Juris Doctor with honours so she is intelligent. 

 

 

 

 

Here we go again... A degree /= intelligence... she could've given h**d for all you know. And before you call me sexist, guys can do it too.
