The Huffington Post and other sites are reporting that it took President Trump only 8 days to bring the United States to the brink of a Constitutional Crisis.
Thank God our legal system, the courts, are working right now.
“It took little more than a week in office for President Donald Trump to thrust the nation to the brink of a constitutional crisis.
Late Friday, Trump issued an executive order forbidding millions of refugees, hundreds of thousands of visitors and 500,000 legal immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the United States. Over the following 48 hours, massive protests erupted in cities and airports nationwide, courts temporarily blocked major parts of the order, the administration defied the courts and Democrats called for an investigation into the administration’s defiance. As the weekend drew to a close, an anonymous White House official proclaimed the whole episode a “massive success story.”
The federal courts thought otherwise. On Saturday night, a judge in Brooklyn ordered the Trump administration to stop deporting refugees and visitors immigration authorities had previously cleared to enter the country. Two judges in Massachusetts ordered that travelers who were legally authorized to be in the United States shouldn’t be detained at or deported from Logan International Airport for a period of seven days. A judge in Seattle halted the deportation of two travelers. And a judge in Virginia issued an order requiring the administration to allow lawyers access to lawful permanent residents — also known as green card holders — whom Customs and Border Protection agents had detained at Dulles International Airport on Trump’s instructions…”
Now the question is will the Executive Branch follow the law? With Donald Trump as President of the United States you do not know what he is going to do.
President Donald Trump lives in a strange world of “alt-facts.” Those are lies that President Trump seems to think are real. I fear that the American people have elected a man with mental problems. His mental problems might not be a problem for a business person or for you or I. But for the President of the United States and the Commander-In-Chief having mental problems is a problem.
A number of reports have appeared online saying that experts thing he has “Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”
“Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of ultraconfidence lies a fragile self-esteem that’s vulnerable to the slightest criticism.
A narcissistic personality disorder causes problems in many areas of life, such as relationships, work, school or financial affairs. You may be generally unhappy and disappointed when you’re not given the special favors or admiration you believe you deserve. Others may not enjoy being around you, and you may find your relationships unfulfilling.
Narcissistic personality disorder treatment is centered around talk therapy (psychotherapy)…”
It is going to be a long long four years for the American people and the world.
If you been watching my YouTube videos you know that my grandson moved out a few months ago and I setup his room as a office. I moved stuff into his old room. Made a lot of changes.
Yesterday my ex-wife and son, they live in an apartment next door, made a decision they are going to move into this apartment with me.
Yes Darlene is going to be living in this apartment with me. James will also be living here.
I will be telling the apartment office today. I sign a new lease for the year today if the office has it ready. Darlene will be telling the office that when their lease is up, two months, that she will be moving out of their apartment.
The reason for this big change is financial reasons. Darlene and I are both on Social Security. The rent each month goes up on the apartment. Our Social Security benefits do not go up.
Now with President Trump in office we are not sure what is going to happen.
So by sharing this apartment we can cut our costs. All of us should be better off, at least in a financial way, and have a little extra money each month.
Darlene and Jimmy have a cat, DD, and DD will be coming over here. That is the cat that bit Darlene and put her in the hospital. I am going to have a cat litter box over here. (Something to look forward too!)
Right now I pay $715.00 a month for rent. Not counting the extra charges the apartment has added. We now pay for trash, water, gas and a pet fee. We play for the electric bill also.
Right now I pay about $737.00 a month. That does not include the electric bill. When I sign the new lease the rent will go up.
It is not because Darlene and Jimmy are moving in here.
It will be nice to have some extra money free each month. But living with Darlene, Jimmy and DD for me will not be easy.
But life is not easy. I suspect this will be my Purgatorium.
We created Lyft to be a model for the type of community we want our world to be: diverse, inclusive, and safe.
This weekend, Trump closed the country’s borders to refugees, immigrants, and even documented residents from around the world based on their country of origin. Banning people of a particular faith or creed, race or identity, sexuality or ethnicity, from entering the U.S. is antithetical to both Lyft’s and our nation’s core values. We stand firmly against these actions, and will not be silent on issues that threaten the values of our community.
We know this directly impacts many of our community members, their families, and friends. We stand with you, and are donating $1,000,000 over the next four years to the ACLU to defend our constitution. We ask that you continue to be there for each other – and together, continue proving the power of community.
“Betsy DeVos crashed and burned during confirmation hearings for Trumps Cabinet office of Education Secretary. I’m not sure what Betsy DeVos should be Secretary of, but it’s not Education maybe Secretary of one of Trump’s businesses would be a better fit for the Charter School advocate who folded under questions posed by Benrie Sanders, Al Franken, Chris Murphy and Elizabeth Warren. Only Trump’s most “AnthingTrumpSays” supporters can honestly watch Betsy DeVos fumble questions like what type of teaching do your prefer proficiency or growth? and come away thinking “Sure! This woman is very qualified to run the agency responsible for Education America.”
Are the Republicans getting worried that Donald Trump is unstable? John Iadarola, Michael Shure, and Jimmy Dore, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you why they’re concerned. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go
“President Donald Trump’s obsessions with defending his inauguration crowd size and embracing false “voter fraud” conspiracies has reportedly led some members of his own party to question his emotional well being.
Reporter Carl Bernstein went on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon this week, and he said that he’s been hearing from Republicans in Washington D.C. who are concerned about the president’s overall mental health.
“It is unlike anything that I have seen in 50 years of being a reporter,” said Bernstein, who first made his name by breaking stories on the Watergate scandal while working for the Washington Post. “I am hearing from Republicans, and other reporters are as well, that there is open discussion by members of the President of the United States’ own party about his emotional maturity, stability.”
Trump drew criticism even from media confidantes such as Joe Scarborough this past weekend for his speech at the CIA in which he boasted repeatedly about his inauguration’s crowd size, while at the same time sending out Press Secretary Sean Spicer to deliver an angry news conference whose sole purpose was to defend the size of the Trump inauguration’s crowds.”
I had a package to ship out to Germany. I had it ready yesterday but the mailman would not take it. He said that he could not pickup international mail!
So today my son and I used an Uber to go to the post office with the package. The people at the post office, of course, said that the mail man can and should have picked up the package for us.
We had the Uber driver wait for us and then had him take us to What-A-Burger and we got some food and then back home.
I think I can stay home until the 1st now. On the 1st I have a doctor’s appointment.
It looks like President Donald Trump and the Republicans want new taxes!
It looks like President Trump wants a 20% tax on imports from Mexico to pay for the $15 billion dollar wall that he wants to build!
Who do you think is going to pay that new tax on Mexico? You and I will pay it.
If the tax causes problems for Mexico then who will need to bail them out? You and I will have to do it. We can not have Mexico fail.
They are on our border. If they have problems we will have major problems.
President Trump had no idea what he is doing. You have money in the stock market? Better take it out and put it under your mattress.
I have seen a number of videos of UK police officers doing their job. I sure would not want to be a UK police officer.
Yes, we have major problems in the US with police but God what the UK officers have to put up with is something else.
One thing I have noticed is that they do not handcuff someone unless they are forced to do it. They will be arresting someone and the last thing they do is handcuff them.
If anyone thinks the guy in the video below should not have had a taser used on him ..well there is something wrong with you.
He refused to tell the police his name. He yelled at them .. moved towards the officers .. waved his arms at them .. He walked away from the officers and then was fighting the officers.
About: I got my first computer in 1978. I set up a computer bulletin board system (BBS) in 1982. You had to dial in at 300 baud. A national magazine picked my BBS as one of the ten best sites. I was blogging before the word blog had been invented. People think the first blog was invented in 1995. They are wrong I was doing it in 1982.
When the rest of the world got around to inventing the world wide web I moved my BBS to the web. Yes, I been online for over 32 years.
You have found one of the very first online sites!
I was doing this before Google (1998), before YouTube (2005), Yahoo (1994) and all the rest of them.
You have found one of the fathers of all this that we all enjoy so much.
Welcome and enjoy and hang out with Jim Howard. He has been waiting for you.
One of the first online sites, one of the first blogs and one of the first webcam sites.
