Democrats look to push GOPer’s on the Dreamers Immigration policy…

The Trump Admin is moving to expel ALL illegal immigrants it can find, wether they have had past promise’s from prior presidential admin or not….This has been the policy of John Kelly when he became Dept. of Homeland Security head less than a year ago….

His explanation was he is just following the law….

In his move up to the President’s chief of staff, he has placed  a deputy to him over at DHS…..She seems to be following her old boss , who is still her boss….

Kelly has also explained that if there is to be a change in the law?

It has to come from Congress….

That IS a problem….

This Congress has unable to do much of anything except run around in circles and have its members talk to the media….

With the Republicans in firm control of things?

It seems like their position is to keep stalling and let the government keep rounding up undocumented people and ship them out….

Democrats have signaled that they will try to force action on the ‘Dreamers’ program in the next two final weeks of the 2017 legisaltive calendar … or…They will move to shut down the government….

The fight over “Dreamers” is heating up as the legislative calendar winds down, setting the stage for a year-end clash that’s heightening the odds of a government shutdown.

Lawmakers headed into the long Thanksgiving recess are in stark disagreement over how, and when, to provide legal cover for undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children — legislation both parties say they want after President Trump rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in September.

Behind Trump, GOP leaders are opposed to attaching any DACA provisions to legislation extending government funding, which expires Dec. 8. But Democratic leaders, pressured by their activist base and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, are insisting that the DACA protections be finalized before year’s end. Many Democrats are threatening to withhold support for an omnibus spending bill if the immigration language isn’t included.

With just 12 legislative days left on the calendar — and the Republicans laser-focused on enacting a tax overhaul before Christmas — GOP leaders have some tough decisions ahead. And the question of timing on DACA is becoming every bit as sticky as the substance of the bill.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has repeatedly noted that Trump, in dismantling the Obama-era program, gave Congress until March 5 to come up with a legislative fix. With that in mind, the Speaker has suggested Republicans would be fine addressing the issue early next year.

“I don’t think we should put artificial deadlines in front of the one we already have,” Ryan told reporters this month.

But a number of Republicans, moderates and conservatives alike, want to move more quickly….

The players faced potential jail sentences for the charge, but Trump reportedly spoke to Chinese President Xi Jinping about resolving the situation. The players were released, and landed in the United States last week.

Trump took credit for their release, and questioned in a tweet whether the players would thank him.

The players subsequently held a press conference last week in which they apologized for the incident and thanked Trump.

ESPN on Friday asked LaVar Ball about Trump’s role in bringing his son back to the United States.

“Who?” Ball responded. “What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”…

Robert Mueller’s Trump staff probe Update Nov. 10, 2017…Mike Flynn…

Mike Flynn is in some serious trouble….

The lawyer for former U.S. national security adviser Michael Flynn on Friday labeled as “outrageous” and “false” media reports suggesting his client may have been involved in an alleged plan to seize a Muslim cleric and deliver him to Turkey in exchange for millions of dollars.

The rare statement from lawyer Robert Kelner came after the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was investigating an alleged proposal under which Flynn and his son would receive up to $15 million for seizing Fethullah Gulen from his U.S. home and delivering him to the Turkish government.

The Journal cited people familiar with the investigation.

NBC also reported on Friday about an alleged December 2016 meeting, saying Mueller’s team was investigating whether Flynn met with senior Turkish officials in the weeks before President Donald Trump’s January 2017 inauguration about a possible quid pro quo in which Flynn would be paid to do the bidding of Turkey’s government while in office. NBC cited multiple people familiar with the probe….

What if Nothing Happens after Mueller can prove Trump and Co. committed crimes?…Open Thread for 11/3/17

Vox is out with a piece that asks a question that SHOULD be asked….

Image result for mueller/Trump/ryan

What happens if the Republican majority in the House are MORE afraid of losing their jobs by voting to impeach a guy who 60% of America doesn’t approve, of and 49% are all right if they do bring him up on charges…… BUT….60% of Republicans do approve of the guy, not caring about his politics , or that he can remember what he said ten minutes ago …(Most American actually don’t seem to care about these doings because they do NOT affect them directly)

What happens if 60% of the Grand Ole party voters/supporters/party members poll that they do NOT care if Donald Trump starts a war with North Korea that could get tens of thousands of Korea’s killed and thousands of American soldiers also?

What happen’s if Donald Trump keeps coaxing his adopted party to KEEP TRYING to ‘steal from the poor and give to rich?’…..

All these things ARE FUCKING SCARY…..

But so far?

It seems that almost NOTHING is more important to most Republican lawmakers than  KEEPING their jobs….

Some of those who don’t like what going on have stood up and been greeted with applause….But most who question Trump out loud are subjected to abuse from some of their local vocal party members …..

They get to add that to Trump berating them in public…..

In reaction to THIS?

Some have announced they’re giving up and not running for re-election…

But most?

Most keep their heads down, swallow hard and vote to support Trump’s all over the place requests and proclaim their allegiance to Trump’s  wishes….

The specter of Donald Trump winning the GOP nomination and Presidency still haunts these party members….Heck, it still spooks the media which has always ignored the rightwingnuts…But now tries to front some of their crazy stuff….

Image result for mueller

If you get the time to read the Vox piece by David Roberts…..It IS good to understand NOT the law and legal part of Trump’s story for the last year…It sis also important to understand the political dynamic he is running on the American government…..And things unimaginable  COULD occur next year that could change the American way of governance and way of life if one parties lawmakers do NOT grow the ball’s to stand up be counted if  Robert Mueller and his investigators and prosecutors lay down a story of a cover-up’s , lie’s ,  money, laundering, conspiracy , obstruction and maybe even treason….

What if facts and persuasion just don’t matter anymore?

As long as conservatives can do something — steal an election, gerrymander crazy districts to maximize GOP advantage, use the filibuster as a routine tool of opposition, launch congressional investigations as political attacks, hold the debt ceiling hostage, repress voting among minorities, withhold a confirmation vote on a Supreme Court nominee, defend a known fraud and sexual predator who has likely colluded with a foreign government to gain the presidency — they will do it, knowing they’ll be backed by a relentlessly on-message media apparatus.

And if that’s true, if the very preconditions of science and journalism as commonly understood have been eroded, then all that’s left is a raw contest of power.

Donald Trump has the power to hold on to the presidency, as long as elected Republicans, cowed by the conservative base, support him. That is true almost regardless of what he’s done or what’s proven by Mueller. As long as he has that power, he will exercise it. That’s what recent history seems to show.

Democrats do not currently have the numbers to stop him. They can’t do it without some help from Republicans. And Republicans seem incapable, not only of acting on what Mueller knows, but of even coming to know it.

Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe US institutions have more life in them than I think. But at this point, it’s just very difficult to imagine anything that could bridge the epistemic gulf between America’s tribes. We are split in two, living in different worlds, with different stories and facts shaping our lives. We no longer learn or know things together, as a country, so we can no longer act together, as a country.

So we may just have to live with a president indicted for collusion with a foreign power….

Sam Clovis, the former top Trump campaign official who supervised a man now cooperating with the FBI’s Russia investigation, was questioned last week by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team and testified before the investigating grand jury, a person with first-hand knowledge of the matter told NBC News.

Clovis, who is President Donald Trump’s pick to be the Department of Agriculture’s chief scientist, could not be reached for comment. His lawyer, Victoria Toensing, would neither confirm nor deny his interactions with the Mueller team.

“I’m not going to get into that,” she said in an interview.

Clovis, spotted by NBC News in the Hart Senate Office Building, declined to answer questions.

George Papadopoulos was arrested in July and began cooperating with agents, records show — disclosing his interactions with a professor and other Russians whom the FBI suggested in court documents may have been working for Russian intelligence agencies. He pleaded guilty to making false statements on Oct. 5….

DC court puts on hold Trump’s effort to reverse Obama transgender troops policy….

Rough day for Donald J. Trump….

I wonder what Defense Sec Mattis actually thinks about this, which lets him off the hook from doing something I think he didn’t want to touch….

A federal court in Washington is barring President Donald Trump from changing the government’s policy on military service by transgender people.

Trump announced in an August memo that he intended to reverse course on a 2016 policy that allowed troops to serve openly as transgender individuals. He said he would order a return to the policy prior to June 2016, under which service members could be discharged for being transgender.

U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly wrote Monday that transgender members of the military who had sued over the change were likely to win their lawsuit and barred the Trump administration from reversing course….

Washington (CNN)A federal grand jury in Washington, DC, on Friday approved the first charges in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources briefed on the matter.

The charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge. Plans were prepared Friday for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as Monday, the sources said. It is unclear what the charges are.
A spokesman for the special counsel’s office declined to comment.
Mueller was appointed in May to lead the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Under the regulations governing special counsel investigations, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has oversight over the Russia investigation, would have been made aware of any charges before they were taken before the grand jury for approval, according to people familiar with the matter….

Pence helps GOP Senate kill Bank Class Action suit rule….

The Bank’s win one…

And we the Consumer lose while Trump and the Republicans rejoice….

The Republicans are soon to go after the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau…..They will try to gut the agency which was cretaed during the Obama Admin to protect Consumers against business abuse….

No Democrat voted for this and Vice President Pence had to vote to get it passed….

The Senate voted Tuesday night to kill a controversial rule that would have allowed Americans to file class-action suits against banks instead of being forced in many cases into private arbitration.

The move by the Senate followed a similar action by the House in July to rescind the rule. President Trump is expected to sign the repeal legislation, providing a major victory for the financial industry.

Vice President Mike Pence cast the deciding vote after the Senate tied 50-50. All but two Republicans — John Kennedy of Louisiana and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina — voted to repeal the rule. No Democrats or independents supported the move.

The White House said Trump “applauds” Congress for voting to repeal the rule, which would have given consumers “fewer options for quickly and efficiently resolving financial disputes.”….

Looser state concealed carry laws equal more gun deaths…

Not surprising at all….

States that have more relaxed criteria for allowing residents to carry concealed handguns have a higher rate of gun deaths than states with stricter requirements, according to a study released Thursday.

Researchers at the Boston University School of Public Health found that states that have so-called “may issue” laws — which give law enforcement officials wide discretion to decide who can receive a concealed carry permit — have lower gun death rates than states that call for little discretion once basic criteria for obtaining the permit is met, also known as “shall issue” laws.

The study found that states with “shall issue” laws had handgun homicide rates that were 10.6 percent higher than “may issue” states. Additionally, “shall issue” states had firearm homicide rates that were 8.6 percent higher and overall homicide rates that were 6.5 percent higher than “may issue” states.

On opposite ends of the spectrum, Louisiana, a shall-issue state, had a firearm homicide rate of 9.96 per 100,000 residents in 2015; Hawaii, a may-issue state, had a firearm homicide rate of 0.75 per 100,000 residents in 2015….

A federal judge opened a big hole for Ezekiel Elliott Tuesday granting a temporary restraining order blocking the NFL’s efforts to suspend the Dallas Cowboys running back for six games over domestic abuse allegations.

The ruling allows Elliott to suit up for Sunday’s Week 7 away game against the San Francisco 49ers, and the game the week after against Washington.

Elliott, whose case has more twists and turns than a busted play, won the latest round in his ongoing contest after a Judge Paul Crotty cited the immediate harm Elliott faced by being sidelined.

The restraining order is in place until Oct. 30….

Trump to stop paying Healthcare Insurance Subsidies….

Frustrated by not having Congress be able to Repeal the Affordable Healthcare program also known as Obamacare…..

Donald Trump is going at the program on his own….

In actions in the last two days he is pulling away the basic of the program….The idea of healthy people helping to support lower rates for sicker people…And making healthcare insurance affordable for more Americans…His actions do NOT repeal the program…The simply take chucks of the whole thing apart…piece by piece….The process will drag on for months…

Trump’s throw down at Democrats, who  with, several Republican Senator’s have been able to stop Repeal efforts is ‘come and see me and we’ll deal’….

Insurance markets and hospital stocks are in flux right now due to Trump’s typical chaos theory of doing things in order to try to steer people to him….

He has the ability to do these things because Republicans NEVER approved writing most of the program into a law they where trying to use against Democrats….Congress COULD in fact provide the money for the payments (and other Trump actions) and put them in the current law taking the President’s control of them away…

The law has gained in  popularity  and Trump’s actions will NOT make those who have been able to gain insurance (Republican voters included) at a lower rate will probably lose it again….Trump and the Republicans are sure to mount a campaign to blame THEIR moves affects on people on the Democrats….

The 2018 Midterm elections are just a year out….

President Trump will scrap subsidies to health insurance companies that help pay out-of-pocket costs of low-income people, the White House said late Thursday. His plans were disclosed hours after the president ordered potentially sweeping changes in the nation’s insurance system, including sales of cheaper policies with fewer benefits and fewer protections for consumers.

The twin hits to the Affordable Care Act could unravel President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement, sending insurance premiums soaring and insurance companies fleeing from the health law’s online marketplaces. After Republicans failed to repeal the health law in Congress, Mr. Trump appears determined to dismantle it on his own.

Without the subsidies, insurance markets could quickly unravel. Insurers have said they will need much higher premiums and may pull out of the insurance exchanges created under the Affordable Care Act if the subsidies were cut off. Known as cost-sharing reduction payments, the subsidies were expected to total $9 billion in the coming year and nearly $100 billion in the coming decade.

“The government cannot lawfully make the cost-sharing reduction payments,” the White House said in a statement.

It concluded that “Congress needs to repeal and replace the disastrous Obamacare law and provide real relief to the American people.”

In a joint statement, the top Democrats in Congress, Senator Chuck Schumer of New York and Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, said Mr. Trump had “apparently decided to punish the American people for his inability to improve our health care system.”

“It is a spiteful act of vast, pointless sabotage leveled at working families and the middle class in every corner of America,” they said. “Make no mistake about it, Trump will try to blame the Affordable Care Act, but this will fall on his back and he will pay the price for it.”

Lawmakers from both parties have urged the president to continue the payments. Mr. Trump had raised the possibility of eliminating the subsidies at a White House meeting with Republican senators several months ago. At the time, one senator told him that the Republican Party would effectively “own health care” as a political issue if the president did so.

“Cutting health care subsidies will mean more uninsured in my district,” Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Republican of Florida, wrote on Twitter late Thursday. She added that Mr. Trump “promised more access, affordable coverage. This does opposite.”

But Speaker Paul D. Ryan, Republican of Wisconsin, praised Mr. Trump’s decision and said the Obama administration had usurped the authority of Congress by paying the subsidies. “Under our Constitution,” Mr. Ryan said, “the power of the purse belongs to Congress, not the executive branch.”……

New York Voters will decide on a Constitutional Convention….

The signs around my way are against the action….

The vote is this November….

“Trump’s election emphasizes how valuable it is for states to chart their own course,” said Peter J. Galie, author of “Ordered Liberty: A Constitutional History of New York” and a professor of political science at Canisius College in Buffalo. “We can put a right to clean air and water in our Constitution. If we want to add more labor protections, we can do it. That’s the beauty of federalism.”

But before voters confront the ballot question, they will no doubt be barraged by campaigns for and against a constitutional convention, affectionately called Con-Con.

The last constitutional convention held in the state was called by the Legislature in 1967. That convention’s recommendations, which voters had to approve in a subsequent ballot, were ultimately turned down. The last convention that voters actually requested themselves occurred nearly 80 years ago, in 1938, when a number of protections were added to the Constitution….

More…

…For….

Backers of a constitutional convention are largely liberal, though the Republican minority leader of the state assembly, Brian Kolb, also favors holding one. Samuels has spoken about adding a new bill of rights to the constitution — rights to affordable higher education, clean air and water, healthcare, equitable funding for schools — that would make New York a much more progressive place….

Convention proponents also hope to lessen the remarkable leverage the governor currently holds over the budgetary process. In 2004, Pataki won a case against the Assembly Speaker at the time, Sheldon Silver, that limited the legislature’s ability to change the governor’s wording in budget bills. As esoteric as this sounds, the ruling has since allowed the executive branch to set just about all the terms of state budget battles….

..Against…

Opponents are much easier to find. The Republican majority leader of the state senate, John Flanagan, and the Democratic Speaker of the Assembly, Carl Heastie, are against holding a constitutional convention. So are Mayor Bill de Blasio, State Senator Jeff Klein — the leader of the Independent Democratic Conference — and most other politicians in New York State.

Their opposition, in part, is driven by the strenuous and united front against a convention led by the state’s major unions, who fear the loss of state protections for labor rights. They are set to outspend and possibly outmaneuver Con Con. They have formed a group, New Yorkers Against Corruption, to harness this energy and money…..

AG Sessions drops Obama Civil Right’s umbrella for transgender workplace protection…

This  backwards move is gonna be challenged  in the courts….

But Sessions IS gonna go after mor protections for classes of Americans….

Image result for jeff sessions

Attorney General Jeff Sessions reversed an Obama-era reading of the Civil Rights Act in a memo this week, saying the Justice Department no longer considers workplace discrimination against transgender individuals to be covered by federal law.

In a document dated Oct. 4, Mr. Sessions directed Justice Department lawyers to take the position in court that the law, which prohibits employers from discriminating on the basis of “sex,” doesn’t cover discrimination based on gender identity, including transgender status.

The move reverses a 2014 directive from then-Attorney General Eric Holder that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act incorporates discrimination against transgender individuals.

Last month the Justice Department argued in a federal appeals court that the law also didn’t prohibit employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, putting the department at odds with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The Supreme’s conservatives just ensured that Latino votes still won’t count in Texas.

Elections DO MATTER….

On Tuesday evening, the Supreme Court blocked two rulings by a federal district court that would have required Texas to redraw its state and federal congressional districts. The lower court had ruled that the Texas Legislature illegally gerrymandered these districts along racial lines and ordered new maps for the 2018 election. But by a 5–4 vote, the Supreme Court put that order on hold, ensuring that the gerrymander will remain through 2018. The decision may also indicate that the five Republican-appointed justices will eventually reverse the district court’s decisions altogether.

The Supreme Court’s abrupt intervention is a devastating blow to the years-long fight against race-based voter suppression in Texas. Since 2011, federal courts have ruled nine times that Texas intentionally discriminated against minority voters. Before Tuesday, civil rights advocates had good reason to believe that the judiciary would finally put a stop to the Texas GOP’s anti-democratic chicanery. Now it seems that the high court’s conservative bloc may thwart this progress and force Texan minorities to continue suffering under a self-perpetuating and racist system of vote dilution….

People stopped from coming to the US because of Trump ban 1.0 can now reapply for entry…

Is the Trump Admin trying to settle the upcoming US Supreme Court case on the orignal ban’s constitutionality?

By doing the above are they saying there is NO ban at this time?

Individuals blocked from entering the U.S. under President Trump’s initial travel ban can now reapply for visas to enter the country, CNN reported Thursday citing a settlement in the case temporarily blocking the travel ban in January.

Trump’s first executive order, which halted all immigration from several Muslim-majority countries, sparked a series of legal battles after some people carrying valid visas were denied entry and sent back to their home countries.

The government will now notify those with proper documentation who were prevented from entering the U.S. that they can now reapply for visas, which will be reviewed by a liaison from the Department of Justice, CNN reported, though no one will be guaranteed re-entry.

The first order was declared unconstitutional by a court less than 24 hours after being signed when two Iraqi nationals who had worked in the U.S. for over a decade filed a lawsuit challenging it.

The Supreme Court later allowed for a revised version of the travel restrictions, and will hear cases against it in October.

CNN reported that about 2,000 people were detained in the first nearly 24-hour period from when the first travel ban went into effect and when it was temporarily blocked. About 140 people were denied entry to the U.S. and sent back to their home countries during that time, the ACLU said….
