    Brilliant move.

    For anyone who just wants reasonable, intelligent leadership, regardless of party allegiance, this is absolute bonkers. I dknt want the president effing "trolling" opponents by playing games with human beings, illegal immigrants or not.

    Anyone who cheers this is deranged.

    Long before he came along......the trolling was happening.  Along with trolling, they just ignore state and federal laws they were voted in to uphold.  Trump is just readjusting points of view

    readjusting? or further entrenching them?

    I'd say it's the latter.

    That depends.

    If his job were to root out bullshit, like an ethical media outlet's would be, sure.  I like that.

    But as the person who is supposed to be above that kind of petty vendetta, I expect better of the office.

    I would say the logic brings the lulz, but DC is a sanctuary city, so I will pass.

    Perhaps some of the media is realizing the reality of the border crisis; even the NY Times said we are at a breaking point.   My, my …

    In a significant win for manufacturers, President Trump issued two executive orders this week that will cut red tape and accelerate the permitting process for energy infrastructure projects. The first order addresses often-overlooked laws and regulations that have plagued the permitting process for energy infrastructure projects and updates regulations for the export of liquefied natural gas. The second order clarifies permitting for cross-border infrastructure and prevents future projects from getting caught up in years of litigation, reviews and delays. Together, these two executive orders will promote badly needed development of infrastructure to meet U.S. energy demand, create and support jobs for U.S. manufacturing workers and provide reliable and affordable energy to U.S. consumers.

    I'm not sure he's actually trolling.  He sometimes has a very dry sarcasm that gets mistaken for it.  He's just sort of doing what the Dems have been doing for years, which is shaming their opponent for daring to disagree with them.  "You don't want to do anything about the border?  You want open borders?  Here, then take all these people trying to come in".

    Tactically, it's a brilliant political move.  Maybe - I'm assuming no one is actually going to stand up and say "Yes!  Send them to my district!"

    In classic Trump fashion, it's also idiotic - because he can't actually do this.

    I suppose that's my point.  It's not the idea itself that I had a problem with, which is why I mentioned that I'd like it in a different context (as an argument strategy, at least).

    But he can't actually do it, and it would be irresponsible to actually do it even if he could.

    US SHALE GAS SWAMPS MARKET
    Natural gas futures tumbled to the lowest in almost three years. http://media.bishopi.com/ec.aspx?l=24316655&e=216417

     

     

    We are the Saudi Arabia of nat gas.  Tremendous benefit for every American, particularly the poor and seniors on fixed incomes.

    Not sure where to put this, but this coming fight over the citizenship question on the census is a lot bigger than anyone is mentioning...

    Census ultimately determines representation in Congress, and therefore electoral votes.  If illegals don't complete the census because of said fears over being deported due to the citizenship question, then this could be a pretty significant hit to Representatives and electoral votes in traditionally blue states.

     

    Now, illegal or not, we still have to provide services and infrastructure for them.  But should that factor into the allocation of federal dollars?  If a city/state is going to be a sanctuary for illegals, shouldn't that resource burden be born purely by that state (and not you living in Ohio)?  I'm not sure the liberal media has fully grasped all the consequences of this yet....

    If you listen to the arguments of the attorneys fighting against the citizenship question - they grasp it. Personally I think Democrats are overplaying their hand on this (standard operating procedure these days) and it hurts the still-red but growing sun-belt states like AZ, TX, GA and FL just as much as it hurts Calexico.
