Be careful what you wish for! Many classical philosophers are credited with their own spin on that phrase, and the indignation of the modern blue sanctuary city harkens back to the times of ancient Greece. A federal governing body cannot last when its vassell states are enacting their own policy contradictory to national law. If blue sanctuary cities insist on independent sovereignty, maybe a better solution would be state constitutional amendments that would lead to an eventual federal amendment or halt of what Democrats consider, federal overreach. If any federal judge across the land can control potus actions but not the actions of governors and mayors, there are grave threats to federalism. A quick solution to this could be the rise of the modern city state. If D.C. can be the new Athens, Chicago and New York can certainly be the new Troy and Sparta. City State sovereignty would solve many social, political, and financial problems. Since city states would be independent, they could not only make their own laws, but they would have to financially support themselves with fiscal responsibility. Hate the electoral college? Not when your city gets more electoral votes than the rednecks in the country! Gerrymandering? Let the hicks worry about that one! Win, win, win!
“But he’s still the president of the United States,” Lightfoot added. “We are due our fair share of a return on tax dollars and I want to make sure that we’re doing everything that we can, and figuring out a way to build a constructive relationship with the White House has to be part of our Washington strategy.”
Trump recently made some candid remarks about the late senator McCain, and many in the gop are calling foul. The two never seemed to get along and neither hid that fact, Trump’s ‘not a hero comments’ during the 2016 election and the equally infamous thumbs down on the Obamacare repeal and replace by McCain, were no secrets. Many in the conspiracy community online spread stories of George W and McCain’s deaths, which came shortly into Trump’s first term. This feud rehash is going to get the attention of many different parties, but I question its purpose outside the conspiracy realm.
After two years of a media fueled sire loser political witch hunt, the Mueller report has been delivered to Congress and the Justice Department, and early leaks say the contents are as fruitful as Al Capone’s vault. That’s an 80’s reference. Instead of coming clean after a two year charade, the mainstream media continues to perpetuate the hoax based on the possibility obstruction of justice has not been ruled out. Democrats, you lost the last election, the next one is in a year, give it up!
The 2020 Meme War has begun, and Trump’s decline in online popularity is beginning to show. Naive, ignorant, or deaf to why he really won in 2016, the daily bath of mainstream media appears to be dulling 45’s once razor sharp political instincts. Maybe the Democrats’ Saul Alinsky war of attrition known as the Russian collusion hoax is starting to pay dividends after two years of trench warfare. There are some support base red flags so glaring, I’m surprised the Democrats haven’t smelled the blood in the water and more ferociously pounced on this election cycle. Let’s face it, the 2020 field isn’t impressive. A good not great, Shultz/Gabbard campaign would easily win, but the commies have other things on their mind. Don Jr or somebody needs to wake the POTUS up, his support is slipping big time online and that and the rallies were the core of his message and popularity in 2016.
Why does Trump like asbestos so much? In his 1997 book, he blamed it’s banishment and removal, on a mob fueled conspiracy since mobs owned all the removal companies, unions, and politicians. He has always touted it as ‘the best, believe me’ perfectly healthy after application. In a funny twist of fate, a 2016 law gave the EPA more authority on asbestos regulation, and as we all know but seldom remember in our current society, elections do occur and occupants do change, so you can’t run the world with a phone and a pen. The Trump EPA loves asbestos, so they’re going to regulate asbestos and other environmental matters the way they choose. Wasn’t the Department of Justice also an Executive Branch bureaucracy under the complete control of the POTUS? Nevermind. Just goes to show you, elections matter, but your rights and the Constitution matter more. Liberals should have epiphanies with issues like this, but instead their solution is more government to prevent a government they don’t like from winning an election or having control over bureaucracies in the first place. We do still have a federal Congress, correct? How about they get off their high horses, and put together a one page bill banning all asbestos imports and new construction from this day forward. Period. Fat chance.
The Trump/Kim Summit #2 ended abruptly today when a deal could not be reached on the number of nuclear facilities that needed to be closed for U.S. sanctions to be lifted. According to President Trump, Kim offered to close their main facility only and not the additional secret facilities the U.S. admittedly discovered through recent surveillance. This revelation, presented to Kim at the Hanoi Summit, may have been too surprising for the pantsuit dictator to immediately counteroffer. Perhaps he had thought the Americans did not know of his additional facilities, or the pessimists are correct and Kim is only buying time for his weapons program to work out the kinks. Personally I think Kim has no choice but to make a deal with the U.S. and Seoul for the survival of his nation, people, and regime. Maybe his general’s are pressuring him to not make a deal regardless of what Trump and Pompeo offer. My prediction is they will meet again in 6 months, and a deal will be signed before the holidays.
Just when we all thought they couldn’t get any dumber, the new left proves us all wrong once again. Colorado is rushing to give their voting rights away to nearby California, in a bill ready to be signed by their governor. Democrats are still so bitter about their 2016 loss, they’re exchanging their vote in every future election for a Trump loss in 2020. Maher just said on his show that conservatives’ biggest issue was their jealousy of blue states, the home of fun and knowledge. How ignorant can you be to voluntarily give away your voting rights out of a petty grudge against a politician you claim is Hitler? So not only do you want to give Hitler all your guns, now you want to remove state barriers that prevent an urban populist from rising to power? Dems can’t get any dumber.
