    'He may not rewrite immigration laws': Trump's asylum ban blocked by federal judge ...in his ruling on Monday, the US district judge Jon Tigar said legislation was clear that any foreigner arriving in the US, whether or not at a designated port of arrival, could apply for asylum. He also said the administration misused its authority to issue emergency regulations and waive a 30-day waiting period to consider comments on the policy change. The latest major Trump resignations and firings Read more “Whatever the scope of the president’s authority, he may not rewrite the immigration laws to impose a condition that Congress has expressly forbidden,” said Tigar... https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/nov/20/trump-asylum-ban-blocked-federal-judge-us-mexico-border

    Two things about Hillary and the server. It is not totally clear she broke the law. It's open to interpretation. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-31806907 When she became secretary of state, the controlling interpretation of the 1950 Federal Records Act was that officials using personal email accounts must ensure that official correspondence is turned over to the government. Ten months after she took office, a new regulation allowed the use of private emails only if federal records were "preserved in the appropriate agency recordkeeping system". Mrs Clinton maintains that this requirement was satisfied because most of her emails from her personal account went to, or were forwarded to, people with government accounts, so they were automatically archived. Any other emails were turned over to State Department officials when they issued a request to her - and several of her predecessors - in October 2014. She said it is the responsibility of the government employee "to determine what's personal and what's work-related" and that she's gone "above and beyond" what she was asked to do. In November 2014 President Barack Obama signed the Presidential and Federal Records Act Amendments, which require government officials to forward any official correspondence to the government within 20 days. Even under this new law, however, the penalties are only administrative, not criminal. The State Department inspector general report, released in May 2016, found that Mrs Clinton's email system violated government policy and that she did not receive permission prior to instituting it - approval that would not have been granted had she asked. Such transgressions, however, do not constitute criminal conduct. FBI director James Comey announced the results of a separate FBI investigation on 5 July and concluded that that while "there is evidence of potential violations" of criminal statues covering the mishandling of classified information, "our judgement is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case". It referred the matter to the Justice Department, which closed the case against Mrs Clinton and her aides with no charges. It's not a slam dunk, it's totally about perception of the law. FInally, the FBI, led by a Republican pretty much slammed the door on any prosecution. It's not a winnable case. I don't have a horse in this race. I wouldn't have voted for her (didn't vote and being out of the country is not a good excuse). Also, if we go down that road we MUST also file a case against a whole lotta folks in the Bush administration as well as Ivanka and what makes Ivanka worse is she knows better from the Clinton issue. Precedence says its up to interpretation. I appreciate you don't like her (hate is probably more accurate), but it's done. I've posted links to similar types of breach of protocal. And we simply can't dismiss Trump's insistance on using an unsecured phone. He KNOWINGLY did it. It's done. The whole 'lock her up thing' is dead and If Trump was serious he could easily have ordered her prosecuted. Why hasn't he? Because there is nothing there. It's political theater. I get that. Either side would do the same. But its just that. Political theater and nothing else.

    > In fact Trump himself uses an unsecured phone for all those tweets despite White House security telling him not to. Steve, Tweets are hardly classified and going out on public networks, so no security needed. Killary broke the law, prosecute her, end of story and no need to say this has been done in the past. We are here today, prosecute! The Clintons will soon be in deep do do with their money laundering foundations. Their audit was due 15 Nov 2018, any news on it? or the lame stream media ignoring it....spend some time on youtube with the investigations that Charles Ortel/Jason Goodman have done on the Clinton foundations.

    Not that I'm defending Hillary, because I am not a fan, BUT the fact of the matter is the whole email thing with her is hypocrisy and "selective prosecution". Can it be seen as technically illegal? Sure and so is jay walking on a deserted street. There was NOTHING uniquely wrong that she did that hasn't been happening in previous administrations. In fact Trump himself uses an unsecured phone for all those tweets despite White House security telling him not to. https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/19/politics/ivanka-trump-personal-email-account/index.html https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2018/05/trumps-unsecured-iphones-make-clintons-basement-server-look-like-fort-knox https://www.newsweek.com/2016/09/23/george-w-bush-white-house-lost-22-million-emails-497373.html https://www.politico.com/story/2016/09/colin-powell-defends-personal-email-227889

    The problem being that Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) occurs in the wild and big business / governments cannot make money from it. it is a fucking weed, hence the nickname. Imagine for an instance that the governments decreed Lettuce illegal because eating Lettuce is part of a good regulatory diet, oh no we are putting all the diet pill pharmaceuticals out of business, the Judge “You are hereby sentaced to 5 years in State Penn for the unholy crime of possession of 2 Lettuces” And that is how pathetic the laws are on Marijuana / Cannabis / Weed

    President Donald finally made it to the top of the world´s comedians by assuming the citizens of Finland spend most of their time raking their vast forests to prevent fire . Other than the Democrats in California . Nobody in Finland ever seems to have heard about this but it makes Finland great again maybe . When do the men in white come and take Trump where he belongs ? It is a tragedy what this guy does to the US but maybe it gets worse when Melania takes over now .

    Cavanami, read the below, the lawsuit has been filed, this is a fact, you know, - reality. ...Three leading Democratic US senators filed a lawsuit on Monday accusing Donald Trump of illegally appointing Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general, saying the president violated the US constitution and denied the Senate its right to approve the nomination. The lawsuit was filed in US district court for the District of Columbia by senators Richard Blumenthal, Sheldon Whitehouse and Mazie Hirono. It is the most high-profile litigation so far to be brought challenging Whitaker’s appointment... https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/nov/19/matthew-whitaker-appointment-lawsuit-senate-democrats

    No surprise from me, grifters don't care where their money comes from. in other news :: This story - US closes busiest Mexico border crossing for several hours - https://www.yahoo.com/news/us-closes-busiest-mexico-border-crossing-several-hours-152602974.html is remarkable, given Trump's rhetoric and all the bluster, about the supposed invasion. I think that Trumpanzees everywhere, will be surprised, not that the border was closed at this one point for a few hours, but that it's open the rest of the time. Didn't Trump say he's stopping people coming in from Mexico? Didn't he say he was using "the military, the military" to stop people crossing the border?

    Some athletes blame poor performances on the state of the pitch. Others blame it on tactics, or perhaps just a bad day at the office. But blaming your opponent for farting is definitely a new one. https://www.bbc.com/sport/darts/46245993
