Trump Now Telling Cronies to Aggressively Seize Private Land and Break Environmental Laws to Build His Wall, and He’ll Pardon Them

Politics • Views: 25,894

The list of things for which Donald Trump has no respect is very long, and includes women, minorities, the US Constitution, US intelligence agencies, science, the office of the presidency, and on and on.

But perhaps most importantly, Trump has no respect for the rule of law, and believes he should be above it. He is, after all, “the chosen one,” according to… himself.

Today he’s demonstrating that contempt for the law once again, by telling his cronies to seize private land and disregard laws and environmental regulations to get his crackpot fantasy wall built as fast as possible (so he can boast about it in his 2020 presidential campaign), and promising to pardon anyone who gets in trouble for it.

President Trump is so eager to complete hundreds of miles of border fence ahead of the 2020 presidential election that he has directed aides to fast-track billions of dollars’ worth of construction contracts, aggressively seize private land and disregard environmental rules, according to current and former officials involved with the project.

He also has told worried subordinates that he will pardon them of any potential wrongdoing should they have to break laws to get the barriers built quickly, those officials said.

1. Accepting a pardon is still an admission of guilt.

2. Some of these laws and regulations may be state level, which a pardon won’t help with.

3. Walls like this don’t get built that fast.

4. Trump isn’t exactly known for keeping his promises.

5. Trump is a fucking insane idiot

let’s make an obvious point here

if this was something the country wanted, and that congress backed, everyone would be behind it and it would be done right

it wouldnt need to be done “aggressively” or by ‘seizing private land’ and by promising pardons

you’re offering pardons because it’s illegal

re: #2 DangerMan

Dangling pardons… like participles..

He might not actually do it, but the trial balloon to see just who among his cronies would do so shows just how much of a cult Trump wants. He wants true believers and know nothing racists doing his bidding, regardless of the damage they’re doing to the rule of law because Trump has zero regard for it.

Trump is a lawbreaker every step of the way, and while you’ve got louts like Newt trying to obfuscate and deflect by criticizing Democrats for far less, Newt is silent over Trump’s criminal misconduct, including impeachable offenses for obstruction.

That’s the kind of toady Trump wants.

‘hundreds of miles’

given:

it would take 11 years to reach 1,000 miles. And that is assuming 10,000 workers going all at once, five days a week. Cut that to 5,000 workers and a 1,000-mile long wall would take more than 20 years

if they started today with 10k workers, they wouldnt hit 100 miles in a year

I REALLY hope you’re correct on this: should O’Donnell’s report (and I think it’s telling Trump’s lawyers are going after NBC, vs. some more-obscure outlet) prove even the least bit inaccurate, it’s just going to provide more fodder for the Trumpian Outrage Machine - FAKE NEWS!!! NO COLLUSION!!1!!11! etc.: which they will probably do anyway: it’s just that if they are right - even in a small detail, it will be (inevitably) spun as COMPLEAT VINDICATION!!1!!11!!! for the Orange Anus.

Ha! Good luck finding 10 000 American workers willing to work long hours in that kind of heat unless you intend on paying them a fucking fortune. Even then, I’m sure plenty of them would be like “fuck this, I’m out” well before the job was done.

The deeper problem is that a substantial portion (~35%) of the American public effectively has the mental capacity of a goldfish. Can’t remember more than 5 seconds of pretty much anything.

So if Trump can stand up on a stage and point to *pictures* of people building the wall, and say that he built the wall, then to them, well … he built the goddam wall!

re: #15 FormerDirtDart 🍕🐀

Trump showing a single document that he’s the sole guarantor doesn’t disprove O’Donnell’s claim if there are others that show cosigners.

That’s where we’re at. All O’Donnell has to do is show one that identifies co-signers, and that suit is toast.

DangerMan  Aug 28, 2019 • 11:36:50am

re: #15 FormerDirtDart 🍕🐀

However, since Trump merely claims that he was the only guarantor and that narrow issue can be proven via bank documents, this could be very straightforward.

we gonna start arguing over what “guarantor” and “co-signer” mean?

Trouble in Fox-land:

Is Fox starting to move away from its “All Hail Our Glorious Leader” coverage, and into a more … nuanced … view of Trump as a form of insurance for the coming bloodbath in 2020?

Fox doesn’t want its fingerprints on what is looking more & more like an epic trainwreck.

Some Fox hosts have closed ranks behind their employer in the face of Trump’s criticism. “Fox News isn’t supposed to work for you,” tweeted Brit Hume, a longtime political analyst with the network who has called out Trump in the past.

Hinojosa hit back at the president later Wednesday morning in a tweet of her own.

“Thanks for watching. It’s pronounced So-Chi, you know, like the city in Russia,” she wrote.

This is more complicated: a US citizen only passes US citizenship to a child born abroad if he/she has lived in the US for five years past age 18 before the child’s birth. Also, servicemen/women can be permanent residents without foreign citizenship.

Not quite… Here’s the code and relevant portions:

(c) a person born outside of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents both of whom are citizens of the United States and one of whom has had a residence in the United States or one of its outlying possessions, prior to the birth of such person;

(d) a person born outside of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is a citizen of the United States who has been physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for a continuous period of one year prior to the birth of such person, and the other of whom is a national, but not a citizen of the United States;

(e) a person born in an outlying possession of the United States of parents one of whom is a citizen of the United States who has been physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for a continuous period of one year at any time prior to the birth of such person

[snip]

(g) a person born outside the geographical limits of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is an alien, and the other a citizen of the United States who, prior to the birth of such person, was physically present in the United States or its outlying possessions for a period or periods totaling not less than five years, at least two of which were after attaining the age of fourteen years

The five year rule only applies to subsection (g); though arguably that is in conflict with subsection (e)

Procedurally speaking, no it doesn’t require an admission…but since there is logically no need to accept a pardon for a crime you didn’t commit it would follow that if a pardon is accepted…

Newbie here, long time reader — apparently I had registered years ago which I had forgotten until I tried to register and found my favorite username was taken.

Children of expat parents are not necessarily US citizens. It depends on a number of factors including whether or or both parents are US citizens, whether they’re married to each other and how long they had lived in the US above a certain age. However, until now, being posted abroad by the US government counted as residence in the US.

I can see a scenario where US citizens serving their country abroad will suddenly find their children are stateless. For example a family that moves from the US to a foreign country during a child’s teenage years, the child lives there comes back to the US as soon as he’s 18, joins the military, gets deployed overseas for a few years gets married to a local and has a kid, and suddenly finds out that his kid is stateless because he hadn’t completed 2 years of residence in the US after the age of 14 and he’ll have to apply for a green card to bring his child in.

But of course, this seems like just a trial balloon to see if they can further restrict citizenship…

It seems that Whitehouse and others are calling out Roberts:

1 The parties have consented to the filing of this brief. Under Rule 37.6 of the Rules of this Court, amici state that no counsel for a party authored this brief in whole or in
part, and no counsel or party made a monetary contribution intended to fund the preparation or submission of this brief. No person other than amici or their counsel made a monetary contribution to its preparation or submission.

2 The rationale for this long-settled principle is simple: “this Court is not a legislature.” Obergefell v. Hodges, 135 S. Ct. 2584, 2611 (2015) (Roberts, C.J., dissenting). “It can be tempting for judges to confuse [their] own preferences with the requirements of the law,” id. at 2612, and to legislate political outcomes from the bench. But a judge “is not a knight-errant, roaming at will in pursuit of his own ideal of beauty or of goodness.” Benjamin N. Cardozo, The Nature of the Judicial Process 141 (Yale Univ. Press 1921). Accordingly, justiciability doctrines, such as standing and mootness, have evolved to serve as an “apolitical limitation on judicial power,” confining the courts to their constitutionally prescribed lane. John G. Roberts, Jr., Article III Limits on Statutory Standing, 42 Duke L.J. 1219, 1230 (1993). In short, courts do not undertake political “projects.” Or at least they should not.

Yet this is precisely—and explicitly—what petitioners ask the Court to do in this case, in the wake of a multimillion-dollar advertising campaign to shape this Court’s composition, no less, and an industrial-strength influence campaign aimed at this Court. Indeed, petitioners and their allies have made perfectly clear that they seek a partner in a “project” to expand the Second Amendment and thwart gun safety regulations. Particularly in an environment where a growing majority of Americans believes this Court is “motivated mainly by politics,” rather than by adherence to the law, the Court should resist petitioners’ invitation.

More dailykos.com.

Edit: Layman explantion:

“The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it,” the senators conclude. “Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be ‘restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.’ Particularly on the urgent issue of gun control, a nation desperately needs it to heal.”

The case, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. City of New York, concerns whether New York City’s now-defunct ban on transporting a handgun to a home or shooting range outside city limits is consistent with the Second Amendment. Having agreed to review the case despite the absence of a dispute between lower appellate courts, the Court appears prepared to rule on the merits of the Second Amendment challenge even though New York City effectively repealed the regulation at issue. The senators argue that the fact that the City repealed the regulation renders the challenge moot.

So if parts of the wall are built and Mexicans steal part of it how is that scored?
Built? Not Built?

what if the only people who are willing (able) to do the construction work are Mexican?
arent we then paying mexico for the wall?

re: #73 Dr Lizardo

True enough, but there’s nothing stopping a new British government from applying to rejoin the EU if they so desired. That’s covered under Article 49.

In theory a new PM could do that as a massive “fuck you” to the Brexiteers.

In theory, they could. Of course, they’re no longer granted their grandfathered exemptions if that happens, so there’s no deal allowable for coming back in either: they will have to join Schengen, they will have to adopt the Euro within two years, and they will probably have to end any remaining rights of residence for Commonwealth citizens born outside of Great Britain and Northern Ireland itself (because otherwise they’d have free entry to reside in Europe without the visas that should be required to .do so).

So basically, the crash-out is permanent because they’d rather have a third-world economy than go into Schengen or use the Euro.

Yeah, it’s unlikely they’d rejoin the EU as a single entity.

It’s been speculated that Scotland might try for another independence referendum, and if that succeeded, than there’s the possibility that Northern Ireland unites with the Republic of Ireland, leaving just Wales and England as a rump UK state. Well, unless Wales said, “To hell with this!” and broke away as well, leaving just England alone.

I could see Scotland breaking away and joining the EU and I could also see N. Ireland uniting with the RoI.

So all that would be left would be the United Kingdom of Wangland.

And better yet, if we can retain the House and take the Senate, then all such corrective changes can be codified into law.

Maybe Glenn should scan a few blogs (other than his own) now and again: I’ve rarely seen ANYBODY on any left-leaning site (or any media, for that matter) give Walsh a pass on his past hackery and general FAIL just because he’s anti-Trump now.
Mind you, I do wish him (Walsh, not GG) success in his endeavors, though: anything that makes the Orange Moron look bad, or damages his electoral prospects is an objectively Good Thing. Regardless of the source….

Disagree: despite being a technical “minority”, there are still a lot of folks in the service, and their “minority” status is constantly getting overlooked in favor of a a sort of quasi-official lionization, for a number of reasons:

1) First (and foremost) the whole “serving the country” thing.
2) As a volunteer military, the need to get the maximum number of volunteers.
3) Military and veterans are usually (if often incorrectly) thought of a a bastion of conservative (if not always obsessively RW) attitudes.
4) Dissing (even perceived dissing of )the military/vets is generally a political loser. For anybody.
5) Unless I’m mistaken, the US military has a larger percentage of lower-income and/or non-white people serving in it than the general population: Service has been - for decades - a path to “upward mobility” for a lot of other-wise disadvantaged folks: messing with the citizenship status of servicepeople/vets - out of (apparently) no other reason than stock Trumprrhoid xenophobia - strikes me as being an easy issue to exploit for the next election.

This is, um, interesting:

But last week, the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver upset the conventional understanding by ruling the electors have a “constitutional right” to vote as they wish for president, even if state law requires them to abide by the people’s choice.

Tenth Circuit (Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Nebraska, and Oklahoma) has ruled that the States can’t force electors to vote for the winner of the statewide vote. Which, from a technical standpoint, makes sense — we’re technically voting for electors not the president/vice-president. But that’s not really how most understand the elector system.

“The definitions of elector, vote and ballot have a common theme: They all imply the right to make a choice or voice an individual opinion. We therefore agree with Mr. Baca that the use of these terms supports a determination that the electors, once appointed, are free to vote as they choose,” [Judge Carolyn McHugh] said in Baca vs. Colorado. “The text of the Constitution makes clear that the states do not have the constitutional authority to interfere with the presidential electors who exercise their constitutional right to vote for the president or vice president candidates of their choice.”

This likely is going to the Supreme Court because there’s a ruling from the Washington Supreme Court saying that electors can be bound by the voters.

re: #162 Jay C

Disagree: despite being a technical “minority”, there are still a lot of folks in the service, and their “minority” status is constantly getting overlooked in favor of a a sort of quasi-official lionization, for a number of reasons:

1) First (and foremost) the whole “serving the country” thing.
2) As a volunteer military, the need to get the maximum number of volunteers.
3) Military and veterans are usually (if often incorrectly) thought of a a bastion of conservative (if not always obsessively RW) attitudes.
4) Dissing (even perceived dissing of )the military/vets is generally a political loser. For anybody.
5) Unless I’m mistaken, the US military has a larger percentage of lower-income and/or non-white people serving in it than the general population: Service has been - for decades - a path to “upward mobility” for a lot of other-wise disadvantaged folks: messing with the citizenship status of servicepeople/vets - out of (apparently) no other reason than stock Trumprrhoid xenophobia - strikes me as being an easy issue to exploit for the next election.
Maybe.

- it’s not just those in service and their spouses (and kids)
- while this may not directly affect their families, they (likely) most have families

that makes it a lot more potential pissed off people

If the GOP gets wiped out next year, yeah…..they’ll be on all the TV talking head shows, throwing Trump under the bus by breakfast the day after the election.

re: #165 KGxvi

This is, um, interesting:

Tenth Circuit (Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Nebraska, and Oklahoma) has ruled that the States can’t force electors to vote for the winner of the statewide vote. Which, from a technical standpoint, makes sense — we’re technically voting for electors not the president/vice-president. But that’s not really how most understand the elector system.

This likely is going to the Supreme Court because there’s a ruling from the Washington Supreme Court saying that electors can be bound by the voters.

if the electors can do what they want, there’s no need to hold presidential elections

heck it wouldnt even be a ‘formality’ because they arent related to each other in any way

That logic can be applied to almost any ruling. “Nobody” thought that marriages worked by allowing people of different races to get married.

The real issue is that we have an unofficial system overlaid on an official system. And the unofficial system isn’t really in line with the official system in close races.

we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender

But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new dark age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves, that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth[e] last for a thousand years, men will still say, “This was their finest hour.”

It may well have been. We found a place near the Morrow plots where you could enter (and, as an aside, my granddad had been a professor of agriculture, though I never knew him). The Morrow plots was an experimental corn field.

It’s not really constitutional. The 14th Amendment just says that anyone born in the US is a natural born citizen. It’s the US code that says these children are US citizens at birth. Trump is using regulations to do the exact opposite of what the law says, which is unconstitutional. Hopefully this gets challenged quickly and struck down.

I don’t know if this got mentioned, but yesterday Phoenix turned back two propositions. The first would have stopped light rail extensions. The second would have forced cuts in services such as libraries, parks and homeless shelters. Both were soundly voted down by a nearly 2 to 1 margin.

It appears a Koch Brothers-funded group was involved:

Around the same time the light rail opponents eyed a ballot initiative, leaders of the movement started communicating regularly with the Arizona Free Enterprise Club, which receives significant funding from Charles Koch’s national political nonprofit. Proposition 105 fits in line with a national movement by the Koch network to undermine public transportation projects.

Over 180,000 ballots were cast for a proposition only election in August, which must be some sort of record. ETA: Phoenix has a population of 1,660,000 or thereabouts. The entire county has 4,410,000 people.

Back from Scottsbluff. The insurance company estimates $1,712 worth of hail damage to my car. After subtracting the $500 deductible, they will pay out the remainder in a cheque.

He says in a message to take the car to a body shop to fix the dents, and if the charge will be more, the shop should call the insurance company.

That said, several shops around here have already said they have months worth of work backed up from the hailstorm.

One part which was damaged was a plastic cowling under the windscreen which is the air intake for the air conditioner and fan. Since our car needs to go in for its regular service at the Mercedes dealer in Denver, I’ll see about having them replace that part.

In the meantime, my wife is looking at electric or electric/gas hybrid cars for a new car. (Our Smart has over 70,000 miles on it.) I asked her on a lark to look up the cost of a Tesla Model 3 (base price is $32,815, or twice the value of our house).

He wants true believers and know nothing racists doing his bidding, regardless of the damage they’re doing to the rule of law because Trump has zero regard for it.

Trump is a lawbreaker every step of the way, and while you’ve got louts like Newt trying to obfuscate and deflect by criticizing Democrats for far less, Newt is silent over Trump’s criminal misconduct, including impeachable offenses for obstruction.

Track projections can change quite a bit over the next 48 hours. But there looks to be an increasing chance that Dorian will cross Florida into the GoM for a second landfall.

That looks like a strike at or near Mar-a-Grifto.

re: #23 FormerDirtDart 🍕🐀

There’s a good recruiting tool for the military and diplomatic corps.

Certain government aid programmes require residency in the USA for certain periods of time.

Throughout the history of the country, military personnel, diplomats, scientists, and others stationed overseas by the US government include their children as US residents.

Take that away and you take away the ability of children to use those programmes.

As a Southerner, I say:

There’s quite a few of us here at LGF; me, Decatur Deb, Eclectic Cyborg, and more…and “just move” isn’t a rational solution.

I get the same from some people living in Nebraska. “Just move” is not a realistic option for most people.

Skipping the part where my red state pays more in to the feds than it receives back (a rare condition), the idea of “just cut them loose” or something leaves you in a position no different than Republicans claiming the same about places like Puerto Rico.

If we could move, we’d be leaving behind those who truly can’t.

re: #92 The Pie Overlord!

So it seems that some of my grandkids might be 100% Canadian instead of dual US/Canadian.

What a shame. ;)

Can I be one of your grandkids? I’m fifty-nine, but I won’t tell if you don’t.

re: #371 Targetpractice

Honestly, I can’t say they’re wrong for doing so. Lawrence violated one of the most basic rules of good journalism by going forward with a story based upon the word of a single source. Dan Rather broke the same rule to push the Killian Memos and we’ve never stopped dragging him for it.

Dan Rather has never backed down — to this day he claims the document is genuine. Lawrence isn’t doing that. Also, we don’t have a known forgery at the base of the story, just one that isn’t corroborated… yet.
