      Maybe we should call people who’ve been stopped at the border “settlers” too. They were planning on settling in the US for the same reasons as Coulter’s ancestors: freedom from oppression, economic opportunity, etc. So why are we arresting them instead of giving them a chance. Coulter’s ancestors were given a chance: what an epic fail they have in Ann Coulter. Maybe we should send her back from whence “cameth” her ancestors?

    Yesterday I spent the day watching in real-time the disintegration of #PermitPatty’s universe on Twitter. She’s the delightful lady that called the police on an 8 year old black child that was selling bottled water in front of the building that both of them live in. Unbeknownst to all at the time, #PermitPatty sells weed to dogs, well not to dogs but to dog owners. Apparently weed is good for dogs, who knew, anyway supposedly weed treats dogs for anxiety and other ailments. Getting back to #PermitPatty, the gall it takes to call the police on a child. How pathetic must your life be if at the drop of a hat you would call the police on a child?

      There is something to be said about loyalty, in terms of whose loyal and who isn’t. If your country has given you everything in terms of opportunity and the ability to make laws that benefit you and those that look like you, how do you then turn around and get in bed with your country’s number one enemy? You have a documented history of selling out your own country, be it selling secrets or spying on your own country. Buy why, why would you behave in this fashion towards a country that has given you everything, even at the expense of those that don’t look like you? And it can’t be because of treasure, you’ve got more treasure than you know what to do with. What excruciating pain has this country caused you to turn on it?

      thanks Don. Which Senators? GOP has been drooling over Putin for years.
      Guessing GOP Congress would be only to happy to lift the sanctions on Siberian Oil and liberate their shares in Rosneft. KOCHs must be OK with this July 4th trip as they’ve had Russian Oil ties since their Daddy built a pipeline in the 1930s. And no conflict with the hundreds of KOCH pledges that GOP officials have to sign.

  40. June 24, 2018 at 11:08 am

    House GOP must be feeling nicely Satanic about their new bill allowing U.S.A. to keep children in jail indefinitely.
    Via “exceptions” in Trump’s executive order he’s trying to find ways for child separations to continue. Trying to overturn 20 day Flores rule.
    No plan to return children, running to out of space, Trump wants to effect permanent separations.

      I don’t think we should be in a rush to dissolve an agency that employs over twenty-thousand of our neighbors. If we go by the metric that says an agency should be dissolved when it doesn’t serve the citizens properly, if that’s the case, well then the entire Federal Government should have been dissolved because of its treatment of African Americans since their arrival to America as slaves, or the treatment of the Native American, or the Japanese Internment Camps . There isn’t a single boots on the ground ICE employee out in the field making public policy, a boots on the ground ICE employee does not make policy. This abhorrent policy originated out of the White House under the current administration. I understand the natural inclination is to blame families being torn apart on some lowly only following orders ICE agent, but it is not the fault of the ICE agents. That same ICE agent that followed orders under President Obama is now following orders under Trump. Yes, the agency has problems, but lets not throw the ICE agents out onto the streets. There are probably thousands of ICE agents having problems with the current policy, buy they have families to feed and to keep a roof over their heads.

      • June 24, 2018 at 4:43 pm

          Are we ready to disband the entire Federal Government, because at some point in time the Federal Government and all of her law enforcement agencies has failed and continues to fail the minority? A true and accurate reading of history has taught us this indisputable fact. So again I ask, are we ready to disband the entire local, state, and federal law enforcement apparatus? And if your answer is no, then why not?

          • June 24, 2018 at 8:45 pm

            Sorry Don, but that is about as irresponsible and silly a question as I could possibly imagine.

            You should know why without my having to explain it to you.

            But just in case, anarchy, of any flavor, is not the answer to fascism or any other algorithm of denial of the right of every person to a dignified life – ever conceived or yet to be conceived – by those who seek to oppress for their own personal gain. Because it always distills to one or a few with insatiable lust for control and riches.

            The only answer is to be unrelenting in the pursuit of equality while being resolute in denying those who attempt to distort, distract, dissuade …. whatever, from requiring every democratically elected institution to perform for the fundamental well-being of every constituent – shelter, food, clean water, clean air, education, health care, pay equity, unbiased police protection, & zero tolerance for broadcasting of propaganda, to name a few qualities of an equitable, empathetic national community.

              We each see things differently because of our life experiences. Your life experience tells you that ICE should be abolished because of the actions of some of its agents. My life experience tells me that those agents should be held accountable for whatever wrongs they have committed. Now, if I were to subscribe to your line of thought, every law enforcement agency in America should be abolished because of its treatment of minorities from their past actions alone. Where were the calls for the abolishment of the police force that employed the officer that shot down 13-year-old Tamir Rice? Where were the calls for the abolishment of the police force that employed the officer the shot down 17-year-old Antwon Rose Jr in Pittsburg? By the way, the police shot him in the back, three times from what was reported. I’ve got a century’s worth of names that were killed by law enforcement agencies. Where’s the call from those concerned citizens to abolish those police agencies? If those folks are so quick to want to end ICE, the next words out of their mouth is to call for the abolishment of police forces that have damned near destroyed the black community. This thing with ICE separating families is about a couple of months to a year old, the federal government has been separating black families for centuries. When do we get justice? Now, everything that I just wrote might indeed be irresponsible and silly, but my perspective is very different from your perspective. My life experience is very different from your life experience, it does not mean that your perspective and life experience carry more value than mine. It just means that its different.

              • June 25, 2018 at 6:56 pm

                Don, I never said “ICE should be abolished.” And, I could not imagine demanding the ‘abolishing police agencies’ because of the actions of certain criminal cops, as that would be a demand best characterized as ‘throwing the baby out with the bath water.’

                You constructed a ‘straw person’ issue and then went all in on it.

                Suggest you re-read my comment.

      • June 25, 2018 at 10:44 am

        This is a false choice. It’s not either fascism or anarchy. I will never go down the “they’re just carrying out orders” slippery slope. Native Americans and African Americans and all POC suffer and have suffered horrific atrocities for centuries at the hands of monstrous racists but I will not believe that somehow justifies or rationalizes that this continue unabated because that’s just our history. And just as I will never ever feel sympathy for LE who have murdered innocent people because of the color of their skin, I will never feel sympathy for the guys who yank children away form those seeking asylum at our borders and grab parents away at factories and schools and hospitals because they have families to feed and they’re just doing their job. I’ve read dozens of accounts of these guys going just a bit beyond their jobs to humiliate and demean and torment the people they are capturing. These people are monsters.

        NOPE. NEVER. This is FASCISM and I will not ever say it’s something we just have to accept because that’s the way it’s always been, ESPECIALLY because these are orders coming from this filthy fascist vile monster in the WH. So I respectfully but completely disagree with you, Don. We are not asking for anarchy. We are asking to abolish the sadists and white supremacists in our government. We are asking to stand up for the civil and human rights of families in our cities and at our borders. We are asking to join forces with people who want to end the murder and torture of any and all citizens, to put this in perspective to end, not extend, the same long line of oppression and murder of POC throughout history.

        There should be an agency to protect the borders. But it must not be staffed by sadists and Gestapo roughnecks who are turning this whole fiasco into an excuse to change our legal system, who are now seeking to become an intelligence agency to spy on populations they hate who are here legally in order to strip them of their naturalized citizenship. This must stop.

    A Toronto-based Syrian children’s choir will not be travelling to the United States to perform at an international festival due to fears about crossing the border under the Trump administration’s travel ban, its founder said Saturday.

    Fei Tang, general manager of the Nai Kids Choir, says a chorus of about 60 Canadian newcomers between the ages five and 15 declined an invitation to perform at the Serenade! Choral Festival in Washington, D.C., next week.

    Tang says most of the choir members immigrated to Canada within the last two years, and some parents worried that travel documents from their home country would raise red flags under a U.S. policy that bans travellers from five majority-Muslim countries: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.


    Tang says the choir is meant to be a therapeutic way for the children to learn Canada’s official languages through song, and she didn’t want to risk re-traumatizing them if U.S. officials denied them entry.

    SCOTUS today held that American Express’ anti-steering rules do not violate federal antitrust law (opinion in Ohio v. AmEx here).

    In Texas racial-gerrymandering case, SCOTUS overturns lower court ruling that state’s maps discriminated against minority voters with respect to three challenged districts and upholds ruling that remaining district is an impermissible racial gerrymander (opinion in Abbott v. Perez here).

    SCOTUS today added seven new cases to its merits docket for next term.

    The justices sent back to lower courts the case of florist who refused to do flowers for same-sex wedding in light of Masterpiece Cakeshop and partisan-gerrymandering case from North Carolina in light of Gill v. Whitford.
